"So I love to think about that while I'm walking around these towns looking at the buildings and the trees and kind of just thinking about the first people that arrived to that area and turned it into what it is. Excellent. You were standing on the prettiest spot in the Mendocino area. Where are you standing on what are you looking at? Oh, this is really tricky because I think it's a secret spot and I can't tell you the directions. I could tell you the direction. But you'd have to kill me. So there's a secret spot, and I'm actually happy to share it with you after this. I just have to go look up my directions. Between montecino and fort Bragg, where there's a street that you pass and if you know that it's there, you take a turn off the highway and you go down a road and you park and there's a little trail head that only locals know about and you walk through this little part of wooded area for about a quarter of a mile, and then you end up out on the coast on the cliffs, just over crashing waves. And there's a private beach that no one knows about. And you can just hang out there for hours, either on the beach, on the cliffs, it's probably equally pretty as the Mendocino headlands, right? So there's nothing you're missing. If you're on the Mendocino headlands, but it's kind of cool that nobody really knows about it, except locals. Excellent. And I assume that people can contact you and you'll try to address it. You can. I could find the text that I send to my Friends. When I tell them where it is. And one thing that makes you laugh and say only in Mendocino. I actually included this in an article I wrote recently for edible Marin and wine country. And one of the things I mentioned was, oh, it's so melissino, right? It's so Anderson valley. I was hanging out at this apple farm, which has some B and B kind of cottages and talking to the owner. And the owner had just this attitude, right, of like eh, no big deal. Don't care what you do. Don't care what you don't do. Just relax and hang out. I asked him for some suggestions. And like, what to do? And he's like, you're here, isn't that enough? And I'm like, yeah. It kind of is. You are so correct, but I'm a journalist. I'm going to have to ask again. But I actually ended up putting that in my article because that kind of defines why I go to the casino and what I love about the feel there is that people just don't give a bleep, right? Like, they're not there to try to create like a heelsberg downtown or a nap in downtown where you're instagramming every plate of food and people are coming out of limos. That is not what they're there for. They moved up there. Most of them in the 70s and 80s because it was a beautiful, beautiful area of the coast that hadn't been developed yet, and they don't want to be in that shiny gentrified crowded Instagram world. And I love that about them. They're more likely to tell you just sit down, hang out, then they are to try to pack your mind with a bunch of itineraries suggestions. Excellent. And if you had to summarize the Mendocino area in just three words, what three words are you going to use? Calming. Mystical. Okay. Scenic. Excellent..

"And we had our picnic, and it was fantastic. And all the way to that winery, we passed just beach after beach after beach. So if you give yourself that extra time to kind of go beyond Mendocino, the town of what you do is you discover a lot of stuff that people don't generally go that far to find. And there's some really, really beautiful places up there. Well, you say, beach after beach, you pass ten mile beach. Oh, okay. Ten miles a peach. Fairly self explanatory from the name there. I just wanted to stop. I just wanted to stop at every age. You know, it's not crowded up when you go that far north. Oh, good grief now. No, there's a mile for everybody. So yeah, definitely not very crowded for really any of the beaches on the coast north of stinson beach in just north of San Francisco. Once you head north of there, you won't find a lot of crowded beaches. Yes, it's why I always go north up there. Now one thing I'm curious about, you are a hiker much more so than I am. North of Mendocino, you get the lost coast. Have you ever done a hike? Oh my gosh, this is a great question, 'cause I just scheduled a camping trip for spring to do the southern portion of the lost coast trail. We really tried to get a permit to do the north portion, but we couldn't. It was very complicated system where you can only get one permanent at a time. It's only good for three people. If you and your friend log on from different places, there's no way you're going to get them for the same date. So what is the lost coast that we're talking about here? That's Humboldt county, though. That's not really the casino county. But yes, I go to Humboldt county also very often. For similar reasons to why I traveled to Mendocino. But when I want to see even less people, that's when I go to Humboldt and you know what, that's getting to be more often. So I go there primarily to just be surrounded by a very green forested area that's also very quiet. It feels kind of spiritual and calming. But you're also never far from the ocean. It's got everything you want. It's certainly not as developed. You're not going to find the same foodie scene in Humboldt county that you are in, you know. It definitely somewhat impoverished from an economic perspective, although it's getting better. But there's a lot of stuff I love about humble county. And one of those is the hiking trails. And the lost coast is perhaps the most famous. So if anybody out there in the rest of our country knows about Humboldt county, it's for one of two reasons. It's one because of pot, right? It's known for having a marijuana. And or two, it might be because of the lost coast trail if they're really into long long distance hiking. So the thing with the lost coast trail is you have to apply for a permit now to be able to backpack along that trail. And they're not easy to get and there's strict limits on how many people and all this stuff. They open it up for short window online. And if you don't get on that date, as soon as it opens up, you will not have a permit. That's for the northern portion, which is more popular because it's in the most beautiful part of Humboldt county. Now, there's a southern portion, which is closer to your shelter cove and ferndale part of Humboldt. And that is what I'm going to be doing in spring next year. Well, and we should say so in California, most of the way along the coast of California, which is quite long..

"I have not done the real bike. I did the real bikes. They were they sponsored me to do the rail bikes. Again, truth and advertising here. But I didn't quite enjoy it. So the rail bike is a 500 pound bike. Do you sip two people aside? You've got pedals in front of you, but you also have electronic assist to get you up the hills and then the wheels fit onto the rails. And so oh my God. They try and time this to not go when the train is going for obvious reasons, but you try. They're pretty good. But you basically like your way up out of town through town basically with the tree crossings closing in front of you, even though you're on this contraption and contraption is really the only way to say it. I've seen that other places have real bikes now too, and it is a fun experience and it's a good exercise. First of all, it's exercise. But second of all, what a cool way. The one thing about the skunk train, I would like is if they just had some really good wine, but they don't. They don't offer it that no they don't. But your goat through then up into the redwoods and again, to the same place where the train stops and you get to hike around for a little bit there. But as you're going, you're going at the speed that you're pedaling plus whatever you got on the assist from the electric motor and so you're going at a slow enough speed that you can enjoy the scenery and get some exercise and it was a blast. It was fun. I'm doing that next time I go back. I'm gonna get your contact and we get off this call. I love that idea. I think I drink a lot of wine and I eat a lot of seafood when I go up there, so I would love to try the real bikes..

"For sponsoring this episode of amateur traveler. And then before you leave medicinal. And we haven't even gotten to fort Bragg yet. You do want to see the point Gabriel lighthouse. So wonderful. A lot of times I go to bed to see no, and I don't have time to do all this. I really like to relax. And I just like to hang out in the casino. But the point Gabriel lighthouse is really cool. You can park basically about a mile from The White House at the visitors center and then you walk about a mile out to the coast and to the lighthouse and then there's a little trails there along the cliffs and you can also, if it's during visiting hours, you can go inside the lighthouse and to the gift shop. What's really cool about this is first of all, you're seeing some history. And second, when you're walking to or from the lighthouse, you can kind of see these old little cute little cottages that the lighthouse keepers used to live in. And they were obviously built like the 1930s or 40s. It's really, really quaint. It's something a lot of people forget to do when they go to Mendocino. Excellent. Shall we head up to fort Bragg? Or is there something else we're going to stop at on the way? Okay, let's say we're leaving Mendocino right now. And we're on our way to port brag. What we have between Mendocino and fort Bragg are Russian gulch park and jug handel park. We already discussed that they both have great hiking trails, Russian gulch has a camp ground that's really a wonderful place to stay. Jug handle state park and beach also has a gorgeous white sand beach that you can stop at in picnic at or just kind of hang out and take a nap on. So those are two places that you don't want to miss between Mendocino and fort Bragg. Now, the only thing I think we need to say because not everybody is from Northern California. And so when we say California beach, you may not have the correct mental image. So what am I wearing at the beach? Usually a hoodie. And socks and shoes. But I will say with global warming, my friend, last time I was at jug handle, I was pretty darn hot. I was working to take top. I had shorts on and I was roasting. But it's the coast, and it's the Northern California coast, which means at any moment the mist could descend upon you and you could really wish that you had multiple layers. So never go to the beach in Northern California, expecting to tan or just like lay out and bake yourself. Well, and you say Northern California, that's really central and Northern California. That's the whole two thirds of the north of the state. You always bring a sweatshirt. It just it is a Malibu. No, this is Malibu, the fog will roll in at 3 o'clock on most days and we'll stay in the morning till 10 o'clock and some days it doesn't burn off at all. Yeah. Yeah. If you don't like that, this is not your destination. That's what I love about our beaches because I mean, I've never understood the concept of just laying around on a beach, sweating with tanning oil. I want to play frisbee, I want to like have a picnic. I want to write my journal. So it's perfect for all of that..

"It feels like when you're hiking there, the entire world has faded away. You can't hear traffic. You can't even hear people that are on other trails, even if it's crowded. It's just this wonderful, quiet, green forest. So Russian culture is maybe my top pick for a hike. But it's also a great park to camp in. So if you're camping, because you're going the budget route, right? Which I do often. Russia got just wonderful place to camp at because you can just get up in the morning and head out to some of the most spectacular views of the coast right there in the park. And then you can go on a hike. And you don't have to leave or get in your car. Excellent. If you're not camping and you're not on a budget yes, little order in just south of Mendocino is beautiful. Historic, beautiful place right on the bluffs overlooking the ocean. I should say that they sponsored me to stay there. So little disclosure there, but I loved it. It was quite modern and yet quite historic at the same time. Yeah, and little river is great if you want to be a bit more removed, right? Like you don't mind that you're not going to be walking distance to things. No, right, you have to drive to get them in the scene from there. Exactly. If you want luxury and to be able to walk to downtown Mendocino, I like the Mendocino seaside cottages. Okay. We're talking a place that has every single amenity you could imagine. Steam bathtub, steam room, views of the ocean, and you're also minutes away from downtown Mendocino. So. It's very small, but you've got all the luxuries you need, great linens, fireplaces. You got a little mini fridge, little stove. And then when you pop out of your front door, you basically walk along the ocean front in the Mendocino headlands, about 5 minutes, and then you're right in the little center of the town. Okay. So that's another luxury option if you want to walk to places. Excellent. Where to next? Anything else we want to do in Mendoza. Sites or restaurants or shops? Yeah, so Mendocino itself is just so charming, just walk everywhere. Just look at everything. You're going to see it. I don't need if I tell you there's a church. It's not going to help you. You're going to see the church when you get there. I mean, this is a very small town. But it is beautiful. So just take your time and just enjoy the fact that it's one of the few places in the United States and in California where you can walk and do anything you need to do. One of my absolute favorite places to stop in the morning when I'm walking around Mendocino is the good life bakery. I get my gluten free baked goods. I get my cappuccino. I walk out to the headlands. One of my favorite places to stop to eat is Patterson's pub. It's not the nicest restaurant there. And I am a foodie. I love fine dining. But when I go to the coast, I don't need fancy. I just want casual and comfortable. And the pub there, it just has that feeling where it's the only place you're going to go where there's equally locals and tourists. And there's almost always a guy playing the guitar. No matter what time of year you're there. So you can go grab your burger and fries or your crab cakes or your crab Louie..

"But if you have the time, of course, if you do do the coastal route, you're not going to get Anderson valley, right? So what I typically do is I go up through the Anderson valley and then I come back along the coast, the slow route. Okay. But either way, yes, it's all scenic. As you're coming up into county, you're seeing the ocean off to your left, crashing ways, brilliant Turquoise water. Things start to look different. You start seeing little old school cemeteries and kind of older school buildings, the crowds thin out. And then you get to the little town, the little village I like to say of Mendocino. And it sort of feels like when you get into Mendocino, you can just drop your car off and just start walking, right? Because the entire headland park there. You've got miles of coastal trails. You got restaurants, you got supermarkets. So you mentioned Hitler's park. So it's on a Peninsula. And surrounded by park. Yeah. And if you walked all of Mendocino in every single street, it would take you 20 minutes. Yeah, it's really it's people can't I don't think they can conceptualize how real just cool this experience is. There's no other place I can think of in California where you've got this kind of setting that's so small and quaint and yet at every single turn no matter where you look, you've got the ocean. And you're just blocks away from it. You can literally hit the pub and be at the cliffs in 5 minutes or the pub. So I love it. That's one of my favorite places to hang out. There's just endless views along all these miles of coastline. There's beaches you can overlook. Blah, blah, blah, right? But then I don't want to stop there because that's just one place you can go. There's also a lot of parks near the town of Mendocino. Just before Mendocino and also after Mendocino between Mendocino and fort Bragg..

"I'm not a big beer drink, but I like to mention that in case you have a partner who's a beer drinker and you want to mix up the wine tasting with beer. And there's also a family owned apple Orchard and cider called gowans. And they were originally always apple farmers that just sold their apples until this last ten years or so when the matriarch of the family decided to start a cider brand called gowans heirloom cider and they make some stunning ciders. And just this last year during COVID in 2020, they finally launched their Orchard cider tourism tastings. So now you can stop at their farm and have a cider tasting in their Orchard underneath their apple trees, which previous to now you could not taste on site. And you just had to buy a bottle for a store if you were there. Interesting. Now, the one thing I found when I visited last year during COVID was that there weren't tasting rooms open necessarily all week long. They tended to be open more on the weekends. Is that still the case? It's still the case, especially with the smaller guys. Like, for instance, drew family wines. They're just two people own that winery. They're typically Thursday Friday, Saturday Sunday. But what you will see in Anderson valley in general, even in non COVID years, is that in winter months, they really shorten their data hours because it's just not as much traffic up there. And summer they really extend it and they're open a lot more. So you really want to check their websites both for restaurants, as well as for wineries because if you do go stay up there doing winter, you might end up with nowhere to go out and eat. So you just want to take a look at their websites. It's not Sonoma or Napa county. There are not 1 million people there every single day. Well, I would also check to see whether different wineries in California require reservations, especially in 2021 and 2022..

"And what you're going to find in Anderson valley is a wealth of amazing wineries. You've also got a really great sight over there. You've got a cool brewery. You can do both wine tastings and cider tastings. There's a state park. You can take a hike and there's some great places to eat if you spend the night there, as well as to lay your head. So first two days, Anderson valley find beer cider, awesome. Now you're gonna head out to the coast from the Anderson valley. And this is where most people go when they do go to Mendocino county. They just go straight to the coast. You got everything out in Mendocino. So first for where to base yourself, you have two choices. You can choose Mendocino, the actual town of Mendocino is very quaint and very small. It looks like it hasn't evolved since 1948, which is really cool. You don't see that that often. But it's also been very well maintained. So it's not grubby or trashy. It's a little cute little white painted churches and little roads you can walk around to every business. The crushing waves are all around you at any moment. So that's one choice where to base yourself. Or you can go ten minutes up the road to fort Bragg, which is another place you can base yourself and also a great option. Not as charming of a town to walk around, but really well situated to visit ocean and scenic spots and hiking. So those are your two choices for where to base yourself. Now you've got three days in which to enjoy this whole coastal region. A few of the things you can do are visit beaches such as glass beach in fort Bragg, which is famous and the noyo headlands, which is a historic coastal monument, which is amazing, wildlife everywhere, miles stretching along the coast. You can jaunt around the headlands in the town of Mendocino, which is basically if you're in the town of Mendocino, you can literally just walk a few blocks out to the tufts along the cliffs and you've got a few miles of trails that you can wind around as you enjoy beach views, ocean views. There's rock arches and formations, lots of wildlife. And Brooke, I'm going to pause you here a bit if we're going to start to get in more detail than let's back up into it from the beginning. You started us in the Anderson valley and you mentioned cider's breweries and wineries and state parks, but you didn't get specific. So let's go to the specifics. There's more wineries than we can visit. So what are your favorites? I like a lot of them. I'm just going to mention a few of my top favorites. So drew wines, which is owned by a wonderful couple. Molly and Jason, that's my favorite place for Pinot noirs in Anderson valley. So they've got a tasting room in philo, which is a little town in Anderson valley. Toulouse vineyards, which has great white tools..

"I don't think everyone who isn't my age has heard about, for instance, we used to talk about the wine area in California as Napa Sonoma and Mendocino. I feel like Mendocino was kind of slipped off that list a bit. We don't talk about it necessarily as much, but we are talking about Northern California to put it on the map. But what's your connection with Mendocino? Okay, so a couple things. One, you are correct. People don't really talk about Mendocino wine or wine country, mostly because they've done a very good job of branding and educating the public on the Anderson valley, which is a specific region within Mendocino. So people are more likely to say the Anderson valley than to say Mendocino county wide, for instance. So that's one thing. Two, you are right. Maybe the reason that I'm traveling to Mendocino isn't only wine. And for me, it never started out that way. Like when I was a little kid and I ended up in Mendocino with my family at like 7 or 8 years old. It's always been all about the ocean and the coast and the cliffs and the sort of mystic little coastal town kind of feel. That's how we started, why we started going to Mendocino. And it's a big part of why I continue going now. Excellent. And I think maybe we just answer this question. Why should somebody go to medicine? Okay, so somebody that's a stranger, right? So maybe you're not a California. Maybe you're not even a Northern California. And maybe you're from Southern California. Why would you come here? No matter where you're from. One, it is unbelievably gorgeous. Ragged cliffs, crashing waves, misty little coastal towns with historic churches. It's as if development stopped 40 or 50 years ago. And that is a feeling that is very, very hard to get in California, a very crowded and very popular state..

"Marco werman. This is the world. President biden spoke this afternoon from the east room of the white house on the rapidly deteriorating situation in afghanistan he defended his decision to pull out troops and said he would not repeat the mistakes of the past. I know my decision won't be criticized. But i would rather take all that criticism and pass this decision onto another president of the united states yet. Another one a fifth one bite and said the scenes unfolding today in afghanistan our gut wrenching. This morning. we saw chaotic exit from the kabul airport. Hundreds of afghans flooding the tarmac running after departing. Us air force planes. Some people were clinging to the side of aircraft biden late part of the blame on the trump administration for forcing his hands so quickly into his presidency with an agreement for a may withdrawal biden. Also blame the afghan government and military for what's happened. American troops cannot and should not be fighting in a war and dine in a war that afghan forces do not willing to fight for themselves. The president said that six thousand american troops are being deployed to remove americans as well as allied personnel and vulnerable. Afghans biden said that if the taliban were to interrupt that process there would be consequences as we carry out this departure. We've made it clear to the talent if they attack our personnel or disruptor operation the. Us presence will be swift and the response will be swift and forceful would defend our people with devastating force if necessary many like scot shady and argue that biden's top priority must be to regain control of cobbles airport shady and is ceo of cya international. A company working on governance strategies and solutions they operate in afghanistan and around the globe shady and joined us from his home in mendocino california. He knows the kabul airport. Well i asked him when he saw the scenes of chaos unfolding today. What is i thought. Was that everything has gone completely out of control over there. I've been in out of that airport more times than i can remember and i've never seen any. It's always been chaotic there. But this is this is a humanitarian tragedy unfolding at the moment. So when you say it's always chaotic but you have not seen people running up and down the runway in these. Oh no no. I mean what. What we're seeing here is a mad dash for people's lives. The airport has become the last stand essentially for every afghan who wants to flee taliban regime and the us military right now needs to get this airport under control and allow for charter and commercial airlines to start coming in to take out the afghans who want to leave. Many of whom are under severe threat. What is your understanding of how those leaving are being selected like zero list and who's organizing it is things are being slapped together. I'll be honest with you Things are changing. Every single minute lists are changing. Conditions for those lists are changing. I mean the white house has been completely as been a black box. And we've been working with government officials diplomats I can't tell you everybody. Who's working government that i know and we're not getting anything out of the white house. We're getting a little bit. You know at state and dod we. We have a lot of great context there but the big issue right now is communications. No one has any idea what's going on and what you have is basically a bunch of people like myself in several others. That are out there. Trying to coordinate airlifts essentially And we were doing the best we can. Without the support of a the white house of thankfully there's tons of great civil servants that were working with an great people. The dod and at the state department so your company sira international was planning for an evacuation of staff in afghanistan just yesterday. Where does that stand today. Oh it's it's w- we're not giving up. We're we're getting our staff out of there one way or another and do you have a do have plans and contingencies for how to do that. We have contingencies. We've plans you know this at the end of the day is something that we as a nation right now. Own so yes. We are doing what we can And we are doing every you know trying to move mountains but we as a nation. This is a moral choice that we are making what we do this week. We'll we'll decide. Not only the future but the lives of tens of thousands or hundreds of thousands of afghans and it is important at this point that we make that right moral choice. Tell us scott about some of the people trying to evacuate while we have women's rights activists human rights officers. Poets artists are staff. We've been working on projects that would put them in danger. These are all many young ambitious talented educated amazing people that that want nothing more but to just live their lives in freedom and and and do something for this world. Do you know what plans are arriving. Taking off from kabul international airport is a government and private planes. I mean what are you counting on. Oh no i sure there's military planes The airport keeps getting down to charter planes. You know speaking to charter companies Things are things are just fluid. Aren't you depending on. Us government flights. Are you looking at other offs. No you're not that's why we're scrambling donor money and private private donations and anyone. We know basically to to put these different airlifts together because we are not counting on them. Unfortunately that's the sad part about it however we are you know they're our partners in this. We've been working with the governor time and we will continue to work with them and they are working with a very closely the ones that state and dod they are partners right now and we. We require them to to work with us and communicate with us. What's going on and ensure that we get landing spots on the ground so that our place can get down there. So are you organizing your own private planes to fly into kabul to pick up your people. Is that what you're raising money for working at several different things at at at the moment we're trying to give out too many details because things are things are very fluid at the moment. Yeah we are working with several donors several foundations. Currently people are very willing to help right. Now it's just the logistics of getting these planes on the ground that we're focused on right now. What happens if this charter. Flights and commercial carriers are not allowed into kabul international. And your concerns about people who can't get on any of these flights. Well i mean. I'll be honest. I think our credibility as a country a wrestling. What we do this week. So you know the that that choice that we make the matter of of saving lives right now or or condemning them to a taliban oppression. That's a moral choice that that we as a nation are going to have to confront and i. I hope that the white house is seriously considering. What are the consequences after this. Because it's not just you know it's not just leaving behind these people who are gonna suffer but it's also you know the future of afghanistan is going to be one which is attack you know at the taliban regime at the end of the day that we're going to see what this regime looks like down the road and at least we could look back and say thank god we got. We did everything that we could to get as many people out as we could over the next few days scott. What for you is the best case. Scenario best case scenario is that that the us military Clears the airport. Security's it starts allowing charter and commercial. Flights to come in scott shady and is ceo of sire international speaking with us about the situation of the kabul international airport. Thank you scott. Thank margot so..

"That's part of what makes it hard to recognize the scientific side of his work, but also to really make sense of his work at all. He's constantly contradicting himself. He's constantly pointing out the flaws of other authors. The imperfections in there. Writing their imperfections in their arguments, But he's also satirically making fun of his own styles and his own writings in his own arguments so frequently he'll say something that he himself contradicts innovator work or even later in the same story, and in a way with science that the the same thing is true. On the one hand, he's really promoting new movements to nationalize science. He's a big supporter of the of the expedition to the South seas, which is really the first scientific expedition or really large scientific work. The U. S government sponsors and he writes to support it and to and it's proponents very early on and his novel, Um the narrative of Arthur going him is an imagination What that expedition might run into when it gets to the to the South Pole. But he's also writing his work on control, Aji writing, doing the science reporting, championing all the inventions and new discoveries in theories of the period. But then also, he writes, works like the balloon hoax, which does that balloon has crossed the Atlantic for the first time, a hot air balloon, so its transatlantic flight and people in New York bought up that paper in great numbers, and we're very excited to hear about this development. But it turned out it never happened. Likewise, he wrote some interesting hoaxes based on the popular science of Mesmer ISMs, which we now think of this as hypnotism talking about how a man who was dying of consumption was hypnotized on his deathbed and then Kept physically alive for seven months while in the MSM Eric trends, and that story also turned out not to be true. So I think you took a great deal of pleasure in in Pushing people's beliefs, taking what they already knew. And taking them just a bit further into the realm where it wasn't quite true or wasn't quite possible to know what the facts in the case work, and he just loved those kinds of Jokes and experiments and and hoaxes just as much as he enjoyed showing how other hoaxes were terrible frauds are terrible forgeries. So the title of the forging of American Science has two senses in the In that way. On the one hand, it's about the project to build and ground these new institutions that were put science on a solid footing. But it also shows how that's completely bound up with these forgeries. These frauds and hoaxes that are so much a part of the popular science at the time and so much a part of His own writing with relation to sentence you know, we all love the darkness that Po has in his literary work in his poems. Does that darkness creep into any of his other writings outside literature, Maybe who was writing about science or anything else? Definitely, because he's got a very complex and somewhat contradictory understanding of knowledge. He certainly believes that it's possible to arrive at reliable facts and theories about the natural world. But he's also very insistent on the limits of observation or puris ism or induction. He thinks that those are useful tool. But it shouldn't be taken for the final word or the final story about everything in the world. He's very skeptical about human capacity to make sense of nature as a whole. And he sees nature as on the one hand full of amazing harmonies and aesthetic unities, but on the other hand, cut through with a kind of darkness for the kind of chaos or or the tendency towards destruction, Just as he sees that, in his own mind, and in other people's minds, there's there's amazing, constructive. Possibilities in the human mind and all kinds of capacities of benevolence and love. But on the other hand, there's a self destructive streak. What he calls perverse nous that leads him and other people to do the thing that's exactly against their own interests. And he sees that same kind of self destructive impulse running through the universe as a whole and in Eureka that that shows up as the history of the universe, expanding and constructing and growing and then rapidly collapsing. Crashing in on itself in the kind of fiery destruction So yeah, there's there's a lot of interest in faith and belief in what science and knowledge can do, but also a sense of the darkness, running through our own minds and through the universe as a whole Giant trash is author of the reason for the Darkness of the Night, Edgar Allan Poe and the Forging Of American science.

It came out a few years ago listeners. You gotta check it out. And i would put it in a pretty rarified category and i'm going to list the others here if you kind of think about economics and market history. There's about half a dozen books. Wow these in the show links that i consider to be must-reads include yours on this list. There's capital ideas evolving by bernstein. The myth of the rational market by fox fooled by randomness to lab against the gods bernstein. The course the oldie extraordinary popular delusions. The man is crowds the four pillars of investing bernstein money by decay books and the birth. That plenty of. There's like half. The list is the various william. Peter bernstein's but i put capitalism in that same category. I won't talk a lot about it today. Because first of all kudos amazing book very humbling to hear that thank you. That's very say that you know when i was a little late to it. You know it came out. And i don't remember quite when across my desk and i've been trying to wrangle you on this podcast ever said so i'm stoked to have you. Let's hear the origin story. Because you've got a little bit of interesting one you didn't grow up in. Marin grew up in india right. I did yes so i came to this country when i was eight. I was sent to virginia the live with my aunt and then moved to buffalo new york and from buffalo. My mother was doing her post. Doc gatt roswell park which is a cancer institute and so we moved to san diego and she was in her late thirties and doing her post doc and got her first job at one of the startups in san diego and then we just moved to seattle after that. No one of the things that i trace our own families migration to some degree mapping the economic evolution of america and the origins of the project really came out when i did a freshman your history paper for richard white. The acclaimed richard white. Who is a historian. That i highly recommend. Is you know the normal scholar of the american gilded age for sure and it was a very special treat to have him as a historian and as someone teaching freshman year history class with hundreds of students of the university of washington. But i was able to get his personal attention for this one essay because it was a survey class of american history from the founding all the way to nineteen seventy nine and the essay was tracer personal family's history against the conquerors of american history. And i couldn't do that. Obviously because the class ended in nineteen seventy nine and my family gave me her. Nineteen eighty-four so i had to get an exemption. For what do i write from. Nine hundred eighty four to nineteen ninety-four. You got ten years well so ten years you know. We conceive project. The paper where i would trace the decade from eighty four to ninety four alongside what was happening in the american economy. What was happening with foreign policy etc etc in. What i stumbled upon was that america's largely the economic trajectories largely decided by these next. Thanks so it could be. You have the internet browser. The internet browser ultimately makes its way into the mobile phone and that sets off a whole slew of applications that are based on top of it. So one next thing leads to another next big thing leads to another next big thing and since my mother was in biotech we could to some degree traits that on top of that you could see that most of these biotech companies and startup companies and seattle when they large we're going public on the nasdaq as opposed to the nyse. So you also saw that see. We're starting to see the internet. The early days of the internet developed. I was there. Nineteen ninety-five when i took the saas headse- do so agreeable to kind of see some of these condors taking shape and twenty years. Go by you know my I didn't end up pursuing a degree in history. I ended up being seduced by the dot com bubble that was happening around me in seattle especially and i was very economically motivated. Twenty years later. I was thinking about the television series so i was thinking about my next venture in media and i was thinking about it as a television series so i thought i would take a forty episodes over four hundred years almost forty four hundred like espn's thirty for thirty and do forty next week things and do a large scale television series. And you know. I had all right visas develop. I ended up getting a book deal. Benner television deal and i had a very acclaimed. Publisher penguin press that took it and it sold in a day so stunning to me. That you're putting all this effort into trying to get a television deal. And i just ended up getting a dirty quick book.

If it's a No, I don't want to just pick on it like a pipe fitter going through. That's going to have to question that person really doesn't know. But obviously my doctor friend knows enough about germs to think. Well, there's one I could put on and it's not that big of a deal. He could deal the germs all the time, and I guess he knows that the thing is dead. You're not going to get any real virus off of this mask, so just slip it on. It wasn't like it was wet and stuff is dripping off of it, He said. It was a it was a soiled mask from somebody that is Possibly a pipe fitter coming back around again. The operative word there is soiled. Okay. And do you think all doctors are know everything? I mean, is it possible that just maybe he was a little reckless in that choice? Well, I should I like that.

The North American plate slips fifty seven feet to the South West sliding over the one to Fuca plate. But remember we're talking about a crushed more than fifty miles deep. The first movement sends a pressure wave that travels through the Earth's crust at thirteen thousand miles an hour it will reach the West Coast in ten seconds. The leading edge will hit cannon beach and seaside thirty seconds later it reaches Portland Oregon in fifty seconds at his Seattle at nine point one. It's what Size Malla. Just call a full rip. Most cities can withstand a six point eight quake last year forty five seconds. But the difference between a forty second and a four-minute quake is like the difference between a head on collision at four miles an hour and forty miles an hour within three minutes. Shaking continues the coast will drop from six to twenty five feet after five minutes. The worst is over for Portland and Seattle will have suffered from ground. Liquefication building collapsed gas fires citywide after six minutes. People seeking high ground to avoid the SU- NAMI will be impeded by debris and driving will be almost impossible at eight minutes to Sonoma will be about twenty five miles offshore. It approaches like an enormous high tide but flash floods speed. The leading edge will only be inches but it will increase to forty feet is predicted that the cascade subduction zone quake would create twice the impact of Japan's great quake of twenty eleven.
