Blake Shelton Old Dominion Dannon say also taking home trophies Keith urban was hosting. This is the show that was originally supposed to happen in Las Vegas back in April. They delayed it a few months in a surprise twist last night Carrie Underwood and Thomas. Rhett tied for entertainer of the year. We have a tie. This this is got to be a first in history. I'm sure I don't know but I'm going to guess how they did it by the way. Spike. Didn't do it virtually they did it where they just. Came backstage and actually much better than the virtual through container of the year. Award Thomas Rhett Oh my goodness. Gracious. He was first and then Carrie underwood gave a speech. No social media was not happy about this tie the first time. Again, this has ever happened between two artists tweets like of course, they had to make the ACM awards entertainer high and make sure a man still one couldn't let a well deserving hardworking woman have this year on her own over this spit. Everything another tweet said participation trophy generation at its finest. Next up, we'll be a world series tie were both teams win but you have to realize country music. It really is still boys game. So it's infuriating to a lot of country fans that women don't get properly represented in the genre as a
How Big Oil Misled The Public Into Believing Plastic Would Be Recycled
"How did millions of Americans come to believe that most plastic would be recycled when that's not actually true Laura Sullivan is GonNa take the story from here. Okay, it seemed like a good place to start was the plastic industry they make the stuff. Did they know the truth about recycling plastic? I headed to one of the birthplaces of plastic plastic comes from oil. But really comes from the dupont chemical company and some of the plastic industries old records are housed in the Hagley Library. It's this stone building on the grounds of the first dupont family home in Delaware. This is a place that actually used to store sodium nitrate back when Dupont made gunpowder not plastic. There's an archivist with a bow tie a handlebar moustache named Lucas Clawson, and he looks like someone would make cocktails. Lucas wheeled out a cart of boxes. Thank you. Files that documented the discovery of a chemical marvel that changed the world, a product that looked like glass but break a product that could also look like lightweight fluff but keep things hot called Styrofoam and incredible new film that can preserve food for days called. Saran. Wrap there were a couple of clues about recycling inside the boxes from the industry's most powerful lobby group at the time the Society of the plastics industry their job was to lobby for the big oil and plastic companies. So think Exxon Chevron Dow Dupont. And there's this one memo from one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, three, the. Movement is just being born, and one of the top people in the plastics industry is talking about how the cost of sorting plastic is high but it seemed like a lot of the documents were were missing I find reference to a memo a report, but then I noticed that someone had drawn a line through it Lucas. Can I ask you a question absolute. Okay. Why? In this section are all. These APPS. So many of these. Cross out because those records are no longer. Here anymore day or not where did they go the society of the Plastics Industry Astra them back think they really yes is an unusual. That doesn't happen often. Do you do know why they took them. Did they say? I, do not know. Okay Of course, there are all kinds of reasons why an industry lobbying group might want. It's records back I did call society the plastic folks and ask them if I could see the records they took they said No. So I headed to another library this time at Syracuse University and they're buried in its tax, our boxes of files donated from an industry consultant. Actually the industry consultant died in the why found the boxes and gave them to Syracuse and inside these boxes. I found what I was looking for a report was sent to top oil and plastic executives in nineteen seventy three. It says, recycling plastic is nearly impossible. There is no recovery from obsolete products. It says recycling is costly sorting. It is infeasible plus it says plastic degrades every time you try to reuse it. So the oil in plastic industry new, they've known for almost fifty years. and. Then I found more confidential memos in meetings echoed decades of this knowledge insight thousands of pages of courtroom discovery. There's a speech from an industry insider in nineteen seventy four when it comes to recycling large quantities plastic, it says there is quote serious doubt that it can ever be made viable on an economic basis. Now. Okay. Sure. Anyone can take something plastic melted down and make something else. But what these documents are saying is that it's expensive, it's time consuming it's chemically problematic and it's just cheaper and easier to make plastic out of new oil instead of plastic trash there are all kinds of names in these documents men who have never spoken publicly before and there was one name I kept seeing over and over he. was, giving speeches at fancy hotels, hosting conferences and Berlin. Phoenix, they called him a bigwig. He was the industry's top lobbyist. Larry Thomas this is the man I had to find but do you know how many Larry Thomas's there are in the United? States. Thousands I'd call say are you the Larry Thomas used to work in plastics? Are you leery Thomas who used to be president of the Society of the plastics industry? And then finally, I'll prompt Merrin the plastics industry no getting around it the BIGWIG himself I'll walk. Do that's for sure. Yeah. My personal views certainly didn't always job with. US I had the quake as part of my job. That's the way it was there. He's retired now on the coast of Florida but I told him I've been reading all about his exploits in the world of plastic. Where would the offices the officers were? What would you think they would be K. Street yes. Twenty Five K. Street Casey was the heart of lobbying in Washington and it was in those offices at top executives in the world's most powerful oil and plastic companies met they had meeting after meeting about a little problem they were having there was just too much plastic trash consumers didn't like it. In one of the documents I found from nineteen nine, hundred nine Larry wrote the top oil executives at Exxon Chevron, Amoco Dow Dupont proctor, and gamble in a bunch of others he wrote the image of plastics is deteriorating at an alarming rate. We are approaching a point of no return. The classic. I was under fire. We gotta do. What it takes to take the heat off. Because we want to continue to make classic equality, they wanted to keep making plastic but the more you make the more plastic trash you get and the obvious solution to this is to recycle it but they knew they couldn't remember it's expensive. It's a great. Discussion about how difficult it was to recycle. They knew that the infrastructure wasn't there. So really have recycling amount to a whole lot. So they needed a different plan. Larry Decides to call a bunch of meetings at fancy hotels. He summons the Society of the plastics people executives Larry doesn't remember the specifics of each particular meeting but one of his deputies at the time Lou Freeman he remembers you could. Get. Back all the layers of my brain. Lou, remembers a bunch of meetings the basic question on the table was. You guys you're our trade association in the plastics industry aren't doing enough. We need to do more. This one dupont executive was telling Lou. It's your job to fix plastics imaging problem. So what do you need? You said, I think if we had five million dollars. which seemed like a lot of money. If we had five million dollars we could. We could. We could solve this problem. And My boss said in response. If you add five million dollars, you would know how to spend it effectively. Well, they came up with a way to spend five million dollars that and a lot more I. Remember this. This is one of these exchanges that sticks with me thirty five years later however long it's been. Anna was You know what we need to do is advertise our way out of it. That was the idea thrown out. The industry decided to advertise its way out of a can't recycle it problem. The possibilities off plastics plastics. From dense. Touted the benefits of a product that after it was used for the most part was headed to a landfill incinerator or even ocean. Look empty yet it's anything but trash it's full of potential. These commercials carried an environmentalist message, but they were paid for by the oil and plastic companies eventually leading to fifteen million dollars a year industrywide ad campaign promoting plastic. So I asked Larry why why spend tens of millions of dollars telling people to recycle plastic when the new recycling plastic wasn't going to work? and. That's when he said it. The point of the whole thing if the public thinks so recycling is working. Then they're not going to be concerned about the environment and if they're not concerned about the environment. Though keep buying plastic it wasn't just Larry in lieu who said this I spoke to half a dozen top guys involved in the industry at the time who all said plan was unfolding and it went beyond at the industry funded recycling projects and local neighborhoods expensive sorting machines that didn't make any economic sense school recycling contests. All of this was done with great fanfare. except I decided to go track down almost a dozen of the industry's biggest projects like the one where they were going to recycle plastic and national parks or the one that was going to recycle all the plastic and school lunches in New York they all failed and disappeared quietly but there was one more part of this campaign, the final piece that did stick around. That recycling symbol with the numbers in the middle this symbol has. So. Much confusion about what is and is not recyclable in the plan to stamp it on every plastic item popped up a lot in the documents I learned of a quiet campaign to lobby almost forty states to require that every single plastic item have this symbol stamped on it. Even if there was no way to economically recycle it, I should note that some. Environmental is also supported. The symbol thinking would help, separate and sort plastic but the industry knew the truth the symbols were causing problems. Warm report told executives in July nineteen ninety-three that the symbol is being misused. It's creating quote unrealistic expectations about what plastic people can recycle. It's being used as a green marketing tool, but the executives decided to keep the symbol anyway. I did reach out to plastic industry folks and they said that the symbols were only meant to help sort plastic and that they were not intended to confuse people but the symbol in the ads in the projects, all of this basically convince people Larry says the idea that the vast majority of plastic can be recycled was sinking in. Say that. After a while the atmosphere seems to change I. Don't know whether it was because people thought that recycling has solved the problem. was that they were just so in love with plastic products that they were willing to overlook the environmental concerns that were were mounting up. It's been thirty years now since most of those plans have been put into place and the public's feelings about plastic have started to shift again, people are reading stories about oceans choked with plastic trash and trace amounts of this stuff inside our bodies, and once again, people are wanting to ban plastic and the survival of the oil companies is at stake.
Evofem To Launch On-Demand Contraceptive
"Today we're GonNa talk about a company that is trying to commercialize a female contraceptive and the company's called Yvo FEM and their product is called sexy and it's going to be launched actually in the next few days. So I wanNA talk about them as the main story, and then we're going to start with some updates from Gilead O'Donnell as well as bio Merrin and actually we got some news from Amarin today that I'm GonNa touch on just very very briefly because I haven't. Totally incorporated it into my portfolio yet, but we did see some dramatic news from them. So with that, let's get going and the first thing I want to talk about is the Gilead, news that we heard and what we found out is that they were issued a complete response letter for the approval of Phil God's Nib, which was their treatment for rheumatoid arthritis. So, this is a bit of a surprise I would say and Phil God was going to be something that replaces revenue streams that are slowly starting to fall off a patent for Gilliat and they're gonNA start to feel that in the form of loss of revenue and forgotten it was kind of shoe into get approved by the FDA issued them this complete response letter saying that they will not approve the drug unless certain conditions are met and usually when companies receive Sierra L. either it's unconditional in the sense that they don't have any recourse or it has conditions on it and hear what we. Found out that the FDA wanted more data from their face, three Manta and Manta Ray studies before completing its reviewed, the NBA and they're specifically concerned about issues in male sex organs. So Gilead is going to have to provide this data, the FDA before they will approve it, and it looks like from what I looked very briefly on the clinical trials dot Gov site is that the primary completion date isn't until early twenty, twenty one where they final completion date of twenty, twenty four. Now Juliette is pre savvy. So I feel like they'll be able to eventually overcome these hurdles once they provide some data. So I. don't see it being long long-term hindrance of the company, but we've seen the stock get hammered pretty hard since the glory days of remedy severe and in general has been kind of slow to adopt new therapies to their pipeline in order to maintain that growth that people expect. So hopefully, with the approval of Fil gone, they'll be able to replace those drugs that are falling off of patent and be able to maintain their value that way. But personally no position for me from Gilead but I thought it was interesting to point this APP. Nasr Company. I WanNa talk about is by Merrin, and they are trading at a fourteen billion dollar market cap now, and they were also issued a complete response letter for Rock Avian and this was their hemophilia, a gene therapy and I've touched on Hemophilia A and. A number of different videos but I haven't touched the topic in a while. I did notice the CRO though and it's interesting because the conditions that the FDA wanted in order to approve the drug was evidence from two years of data for its ongoing phase three trial to support the durability of the gene therapy. So this is obviously kind of rough for the company because the bar is rarely set this high for other companies that two year window of therapy is going to be maintained. This has me questioning the gene therapy space as a whole that you know other companies that have invested in say route Jenex bio if they're going to have to show two years of data to show that it is a Gerbil effect, this obviously plays into the models and delays the time at which it's GonNa take for them to get revenue. So kind of. makes. Me Nervous about the gene therapy space but you know different diseases seem to have different thresholds for what the FDA wants and it's tough to predict. So thought it was worth bringing up and just for those who are actually following by man, their last phase three patient will complete two years of follow up in November twenty, twenty, one, serve you're expecting revenue from this drug. Now you're GonNa have to wait until twenty, twenty two proudly see any revenue. So that's a disappointment even though the drug does help us significant number of patients. All right. Moving on I WANNA touch on otani therapeutics ticker symbol od T, and they're trading now at around five hundred, seventy, four, million dollar market cap for those that don't remember I, touched on this a while ago they were short candidate that I had once I seemed like they had a run up in the stock for no obvious reason, and then I sold it off in anticipation of run up to this event that we just saw news to, and they're commercializing a tax seen that is given orally. So right now has to be given IV in a lot of complications surrounding that a lot of hurdles that patients he'd go through to get this. Treatment and it's Kinda tedious. So if he can come up with an oral version, it would be much better for patients and that's what Oh Donald Trump do here. So what we heard is that their face three contessa trial achieved primary endpoint and what they were looking at is test attacks will their drug plus bean compared to just capital being alone, and the results showed that the progression free survival was significantly better in the tax will plus Kapustin group rather than just cap aside to being alone nine point eight months versus six point nine months with a hazard ratio of zero point seven to just pretty good and value point zero, zero three.

Sabatinis stylish dominance; Nadal and Federers 2006 classic
"Amy Thank you so much for your support and to everybody that bacteria kickstarter at the end of last year which enabled us to carry on all year long and produced the tennis podcast four. You hope you're enjoying it. We certainly are catherine say. Hello Catherine David. Hello Matt. You're right. Hello yes fine. Thank you good. We have had the most wonderful weekend watching old tennis matches from Rome which we are going to really have with you today from nine hundred ninety two. The story of Gabriella Sabatini is extraordinary. Run in Rome for titles in five years and also talk about how more generally she's one of those players that tends to get forgotten. I'm afraid to say including bias. I can't think of many times that we've mentioned the name Gabriella Sabatini over the last eight years of the tennis podcast. And we're going to put that right today. She also turned fifty as well over the weekend. So feels like a good time to do that. And we're going to go back to the two thousand six men's final between Roger Federer and Rafael. The Dow a dare say many more of you will remember that one and maybe some of you watched it with us over the weekend so lots to talk about before we do that. Let's just mention the news of the week. Which is that more? Tennis TOURNAMENTS HAVE BEEN CANCELLED UP until July thirty first on the ATP circuit and the events. The wheelchair events have been announced on the men's side tournaments like a start Baastad Kitzbuehl in Newport or cancel because of the corona virus. And we await to find out what will happen with the American swing in August. But I mean it doesn't sound great so we'll have to wait and see several WTI events until mid-july cancelled as well but no great surprise. I'm afraid Catherine I should say as well following on from songs that could be used for the corona era a particular mention for EJ Stanton on instagram. Who suggests don't stand so close to me from the police. Yep Yep acceptable. Yep that's yeah. I've heard that mentioned a lot of the lowest we were going for more. I don't want to diminish EJ's contribution that we were going. Ooh For more specifically songs that reference the absence of crowd right so rather than sort of general corona virus social distancing song bags which which I feel are. Is anyone else a bit over sort of Korean social distancing song just over the whole thing generally? It's a very very difficult time for cynical people with a dry sense of humor because there's a loss of well intentioned sort of sickly happiness in sort of we're all in this together in we'll come through this and have you considered crafting. You should be crofting. Oh we're GONNA come out of. This is best move well rounded people and you know people that then you bunny the. I'm so over all of that. This folks is Katharine Whitaker. Who has just shown irs her two thousand piece Jigsaw which makes two in a row that she's not together now and she's also about her fiftieth podcast to the air with two weeks worth of dailies to come during Roland Garros Peppy Catherine. Yeah but I'm not. I'm not smugly telling people if you considered podcasting it's it'll make you a better human being during these challenging times. Stephanie my better I have. You always Dunk Jigsaw. No I mean I have on occasion in over the years done the odds Dixon L- but nights definitely I. I'm not doing this to to self improve. I'm enough to pass the time. I'm just impressed. Because not cool or anything they might even be able to hear me through the wolves but my parents started kick those and they're really not very good at them. How can you be? How can you be bad at jiggles? Unless you've got bad eyesight you've done you've done about five of them in the space have been out of the night soaking souls. We're talking two thousand pieces. My parents struggling with five five hundred faces. Maybe they need help just handed over to my kids. If I was doing a jigsaw. There's no why upbeat during it because I just lose know these inch. It's IT'S GONNA sound like one of these awful peppy. People is the IT. It's it's very mindful. It gets me off my phone hawks. Group it it's very it's you can still sort of be watching the telly obviously not physique. And have something on the tally in the background. And be paying attention to it but it gets you off your phone sort of it. Concentrates the mind. Oh God I hate myself move on. Can Multitask is what you're saying? Awesome specifically cannot multitask. So I would say it's a nonstarter. Meanwhile folks we have been putting photos on social media channels of ourselves in one thousand nine hundred ninety two where possible because Matt didn't exist nine hundred ninety two and two thousand and six respectively Matt has created quashed a picture of a tennis magazine on which he as a child prodigy is on the front cover wielding his racket. Like Richard Gasquet aged nine. Except there's no strings in the racquet That's the away so walk away. A few people were taken in by it. It's my absolute probably favorite thing. That's ever happened to me. That people actually think I was on the cover of Tennis magazine. Age Ten it was just at Wimbledon in the. Lta Tent way you could go up and have your have your photo taken in front of a green screen. And they were then imprinted onto ace tennis magazine. And yes they put up there alongside the words the not a the future Wimbledon champion going to all future Wimbledon. Men's having experienced his game. I can tell you what could have happened to a young Merrin Chile church in appearance. Yeah not sure what to say about that. Well he he opened so I'd go with that. Yeah no great. I'm in favor of all. Comparisons to professionals plays a singular. Us Open title is not all Wimbledon. Titles there is it still in underachievement relative. I don't think we're actually doing any matches from two thousand seven for tennis relived. Who knows how long ten is live? We'll be going on. We may have to come to two thousand and seven at some point but I actually went back the following year and appeared on the front cover again. Let's just put it up as a sort of extra what the people working uniform and that one.

If if you listened to yesterday's show you should know by now that we're pivoting to calling him. L. D. C.. Leo Is L. D. C.. Now we're doing L. D. C.. Instead of Leo so it just try to keep up a key anyway. The two most famous guys in Hollywood I would probably say Went on W. t.f with Marc Maron and they talked about their film. Once upon a time in Hollywood. I tried desperately to listen to the whole thing but I ended up having to skip around because like come on. I don't have infinite time okay. I'm not a what the fuck buddy. Okay I'm not what the senator I'm not a what the net and just a human being who's desperately trying to become the dirt under Leonardo Nardo DiCaprio's fingernail I mean LDC's fingernail so first of all. We have to talk about how in interview Brad outed himself as a big fan of of Merrin. Not Like I mean yes. Marc Maron the person but I'm specifically talking about his. TV show. Merrin remember that show will apparently Rod Rod pit has seen the entire series three times. There are four seasons of Maryland and brand has watched all of them three times. This is that completely unhinged behavior brought. We need to talk about this. Why are you okay? Okay I feel like it's an extremely depressed. Depressed divorced Dad vibe to watch Merrin the entire series three times in a row anyway the interviews pretty good a few outlets have started reporting reporting on a couple of different parts of it. This part is probably the Buzzy Est.. It's when Mark Marin starts talking to the guys about Paparazzi and the influence that like tabloids have on their lives. Leo Starts by talking about how the `Paparazzi has actually lightened up. And it's not as big a part of his life these days. No it doesn't tonight no no no. It doesn't not not as much anymore. No no thank God. Would they do something usually. There's like this time when you have a movie coming out out or you're starting to do promotion. Where their side sort of on you a lot more the off? But you know I get to. I've been able to escape a lot more. which is it's great and walk around? It's at this point in the interview that you can kind of hear Brad Pitt getting annoyed. He's like why yours have stopped minor still going anyway. Brad jumps in right here a little disgruntled with you. Haven't you haven't waiting on men really. Oh Man Yeah but maybe I'm just I'm just trash MAG fodder I'm like I don't know my Because observe disaster of personal probably very exciting personal poor. Brad I do feel I kind of feel bad for Brad interviewing like he says his personal life is a disaster. I mean you know. He's gone through a lot he's he's gone through a lot. bratty boy I don't have much more to say about the interview but I think Leo Aka. LDC summed it up best. When he said this a little? Kim Yeah Rats is GonNa get you one way or another it's been my motto. I figure there's just nothing you can do L. D. C.. So Oh funny. I think that's funny. I think that they're both funny. I guess I have to listen to the whole thing I have to. I have to do a deep dive on this podcast uncast episode. Because like. How often do we get a listers? Like this going onto podcasts. Like we just we. Just don't get it that often. So yeah I'm Gonna I'm going to give it a listen. You know I'm going to have to become a With the Nadir or whatever what a what did they called the listeners. I don't

Why Are Some Words 'Bad'?
"We're talking about that words specifically bad words for the adults listening. Don't turn this down. I promise we won't actually say any swears cuss curse words. Potty talk however you characterize this kind of language in your family now some of you listening might not really know any bad words and that's great but but then again maybe you have heard an adult around you say a word and then ask you not to repeat it or maybe you've heard another kid say a bad word. Maybe even some of you have said one of those bad words yourself and perhaps you've gotten in trouble for it. You have sent us questions about why these words exist and why they're often so powerful and we thought these questions deserved their own episode because it's important to be able to talk about the things that are confusing or hard and even the things that make us or our adults uncomfortable. Here's who we found to guide us in this conversation. My name is Ben. Bergen and and I'm a professor at the University of California San Diego and I steady language and the brain whenever we speak. It's because of signals that are sent from our brain whenever we understand words. It's because the signals that go into our ears and into our eyes get connected in our brain and our brain allows us to. I understand how meaning works allows us to convey messages and it's the really smart control system at the middle of our bodies professor. Bergen has also written a book all about bad words has a cheeky title. But the subtitle is what swearing reveals about our language our brains and ourselves so he has spent a lot of time studying bad words why we use them and how we use them and what's going on in in our brains. When we say bad words I became really interested in swearing when I became apparent so I have two kids who were five into into and when my son was born all of a sudden I realized that I used some strong language as an adult that I I felt a little uncomfortable with around this new child and I wanted to understand more about how that strong language worked? Does it cause harm two children to hear it. Why do we use it? Why does it feel so powerful and so I started doing some research? Does it cause harm to children to hear or use bad language. Guage as far as we can tell there's no particular harm that it causes two children so children here lots of words and they find them Some of them exciting. They find some of them boring. They find some of them intriguing interesting because maybe they provoke interesting reactions. Sion's and the people around them but for the most part the words themselves don't cause any harm the the thing it does cause harm we know is when people talk to children in ways that make them feel bad about themselves so telling children that they a worthless telling children that they're bad or threatening children. We know that that can cause harm but it doesn't matter so much which words you use. What matters is the message that you're conveying Well I hope we can get into a little bit more of that but let's start with some of the questions that we have from our a young listeners because it will probably not surprise the kids who are listening and it will definitely not surprise any adults who are listening that we have a lot of questions from kids about bad words and why people use them and why kids can't use them so let's start with Daschle. Hello My name is Anne from North Carolina and my question is why are some bad bad word were some words bad in wind. Wise the Middle Finger bad my name is Logan in Iowa from Omaha and my question is why are some words bad. Why are some words bad? That's a great question. It's very hard to give a single answer because for each word there's a different history. Three words come into a language over the course of many many many years and centuries and they change and so the way that a word is used at one time may change over the course of generations of people who use that word words. In general that are considered bad tend to come from particular places they tend to relate to part of our lives that we don't like talking about about in public and in particular they tend to relate to experiences of like bathroom functions. So things that you we do in a bathroom or too religious ideas. Sometimes they relate to other groups of people that we have negative feelings about those those words. Over time they evolved they change so that not only do people not want to talk about those things but they don't even want to say those words or hear those particular particular words. What about the Middle Finger? I know you study words but do you have a sense of white gestures. Things that you do with your body could also be considered batter those connected to the words so the Middle Finger has a very long history. It's been used in the same way that we use it now for at least two thousand years. We know that the ancient Incheon Greeks used it the ancient Romans used it and it was very similar to what it is now. We think that it might might have originally been used to represent a penis and That just as we don't like to show private parts in public look in the same way. We don't like to show demonstrations of what private parts might look like in public but over the course of time. It's just become a general term or general gesture that is used to denigrate people or to show dislike for people. The middle finger isn't universal. Though in lots of other cultures there are different gestures that mean similar things and in some places in the world. The Middle Finger doesn't mean what it means here you at all. That's so interesting because I think a lot of people will understand that to be true. That may be something that is not a such a bad word in your family family or in your culture can be really bad or have a totally different meaning in somebody else's family or somebody else's culture and Ben even the things that you were talking talking about like Bathroom humor some families are okay with that and some families aren't and there. Are Maybe things that we say at home. That are okay that we wouldn't say at school. Aw So it's interesting to think about the fact that words don't have a universal bad meaning or a universal bad sense to them or a good sense to them. Yes the the words that we think are bad. We think are bad because we learned that they are bad. We were told that by our parents wants or we noticed that they were bleeped out when we're listening to music or maybe we were even punished for using them. That's how we learned that those particular words are bad but as you say it may differ from family to family. I know that there are families that my children go to school with who have very different rules at home. About what words they can say and what words they can't say and certainly across time the words that we think are bad words now were not bad Edwards one hundred or two hundred years ago and they won't be bad words in the future either are their historical bad words. That don't really have any meaning now. So they're more just kind of fun but that were really bad way back two hundred years ago. Sure there's a whole history of words that used to be really strong bad words but people have totally totally forgotten about one of them is zounds downs zones yeah that's a good one or Gad. Souks Gad's oops it was bad get dukes was really bad. It was religious term. It comes from God's hooks and it's meant to refer to to the Stigmata of Jesus on the Cross There's another one that I don't think anyone knows about any more. But that was the F. Word back in Shakespeare's Day. We have another question from Merrin. I am nine years old. I live in Evansville Indiana. My question is is. Why aren't kids allowed to say bad words or cuss words? Why aren't kids allowed to say bad? Words cuss words. That's a great question. Some kids are in some circumstances. So it's important to remember that social rules change depending on who you you are and where you are and who's around you so it's certainly true that in certain places people are expected not to use bad words so for example in a classroom where they're adults around or with particular adults may be in your home. Those are places where there's as an expectation that people will talk in a certain way and in our culture at this time we've decided that those words are not appropriate for for those circumstances. It's kind of like you know when you need to use the bathroom. There's a particular sites that you use the bathroom and lots of other places that you don't. That's just how our society works but there are certain places and certain times where kids can use strong words in particular where there aren't people around who feel that it's inappropriate so when kids are just around other kids and a everyone is comfortable and making sure that they're keeping each other's Feeling in safe. Then it's okay for those kids to use those words in some families at home. It's okay for kids to use strong words so so it all it all depends. I would also add that. One of the jobs of the adults in your life is to try to teach you what's acceptable and what's not and how your behaviors you and your language affect you and other people and what the consequences are of how you behave. And then when you're an adult you have more freedom to make choices for yourself about what kind words you're going to use but those choices will be based on what you've learned from the adults in your life from all of the people around you
