"Continuing to rise It's an incredibly complex issue that we don't actually have answers for but we continue to use the rising rates of fatness in our culture as a cudgel to get folks to lose weight That's right Aubrey Gordon She co hosts the podcast maintenance phase with journalist Michael Hobbs and she says when they first started they wanted to focus on big questions that other health and fitness podcasts weren't necessarily asking Felt worth having a conversation about like okay well what's actually the science behind this What are the motives of the people who are presenting all of these fad diets all of these wellness trends What's the story behind it I spoke with Aubrey Gordon and Michael Hobbs the other day and we started by talking about the medical consensus that obesity can lead to health problems Yeah there's a very clear correlation between weight and bad health outcomes But weight is not the only thing that's correlated with health We know that poverty has a devastating effect on people's health The life expectancy in various counties in America can be up to 20 years of difference the poorest most marginalized counties in America people live to about 65 and I think it's like boulder Colorado or something they live until they're 85 There's all these other health disparities that we accept as correlations And yet weirdly when it comes to obesity it's like oh no we know that the obesity is causing this People have kind of jumped to this causal explanation and there is a very strong association but there's very strong associations of all kinds of things with health outcomes So the question is why are we still putting weight at the center of our understanding about health when there's actually much more sophisticated ways to help people be healthy and we're not really doing those You spend an episode looking at how obesity became defined not just as a risk factor for certain diseases but eventually as a disease in and of itself can you just give us a nutshell version of how this happened I mean I think in order to talk about quote unquote obesity as a disease you've got to talk about the BMI which I think we think of now as a hard and fast measure and an objective measure of size and health The first BMI sort of public policy definition of overweight in the U.S. was that the fattest 15% of us should be considered overweight That wasn't attached to there are specific health outcomes that happen at that point It was just we're gonna call the fattest 15% of us overweight Essentially what happened here is that there was a public health person at the CDC who felt really passionately that our conversations about weight and weight loss were woefully over simplistic and he thought that redefining fatness as a disease would lead folks to understand that it's much more complicated than just this sort of like hard driving kind of personal responsibility narrative that we get The challenge is as he did that a bunch of drug companies started to back his efforts because if more people were defined as fat they would have more customers for their weight loss drugs and surgery That's not to say that those products haven't worked for some folks and haven't produced weight loss for some folks But it is to say that that wasn't a neutral medical decision that was uninfluenced by capital right Like any other industry right In the diet industry and in the healthcare industry profit motives that are still at play I mean isn't the goal of calling something a disease often to be more compassionate I mean we see this with the drug war right to look at addiction as a disease which implies it's not something that somebody's fault necessarily it's something that requires treatment not punishment not scorn Yes I think that was the intention of this person at the CDC Paradoxically and unfortunately what we have seen in the years since that redefinition is a skyrocketing of bias against fat people That has happened amongst healthcare providers It has happened amongst social workers and has happened amongst the general public in the United States that we are seeing dramatically rising levels of anti fat bias So despite the sort of best intentions behind that redefinition it has unfortunately produced the opposite I want to ask you both about something you know you talk a lot about how losing weight shouldn't be probably shouldn't be the goal of making a change to your lifestyle Full disclosure I'll tell you my own experience about four years ago I lost 60 pounds I had gained weight during a stressful time in my life It's complex right A lot of things went into it And so I was at a much heavier weight than I normally was I very slowly and carefully without any kind of extreme changes began making small lifestyle changes in terms of improving the quality of my food just going for a lot more walks When I was heavier I was still pretty healthy but all of the objective measures of health you know My blood pressure looks better than it did four years ago And I just shared this to say and you won't offend me 'cause I want to hear your honest opinion Is there a healthy way to think about weight loss Is it ever okay for it to be a goal I don't want to take anything away from anybody Right I don't want to tell people who are pursuing weight loss that that's a bad or unworthy goal for them I do want to tell folks that that is a significantly more complicated venture than we have been led to believe that it is The story that you just told was I changed the foods that I was eating I changed the quality of the foods that I was eating I changed the way I was moving and how much I was moving And then I lost weight and then my health markers changed So you can still do all of the other stuff You can still produce changed health outcomes by changing your behaviors and that may or may not result in weight loss And that's still a win for your health right I think we would all do ourselves a really significant service by actually just focusing on the health markers and not the proxy for the health markers which is weight The thing that we're interested in is at the systems level So public health we should not be aiming for weight We should be aiming for health If we're talking about medical care a really important thing is for doctors to actually listen to patients And if they want to have the conversation about weight loss if a patient brings that up I think that that is fine What we find is really consistent stories from fat people of going into the doctor with a migraine headache and their doctor tells them to lose weight They go in with a car accident their doctor tells them to lose weight They go in with a tumor their doctor tells them to lose weight This is something that is like really really devastating to the health of fat people that essentially people don't listen to them What if any feedback have you gotten from the medical community for your podcast Oh it's like unbelievably it's some of the most disappointing emails I've ever seen It's like sentenced by sentence It's like this bias doesn't exist and ah here's my bias It is fascinating to me that just a very basic thing Ask them about their diet and exercise habits before you tell them wrote boring advice like calories in calories out like there's so much resistance to this So Mike tends to get the line by line extremely over bias emails I tend to get the emails from healthcare providers who talk about things like oh my God I had never thought about why I was required to put the BMI on every patient's chart Oh my God we're now talking about training for anti fat bias and screening for eating disorders before we make any dietary recommendations to any patient Like every time mic checks his email the message he gets his doctors hate us and every time I get mine I check mine I'm like everything's changing and things are looking up I know we need to trade one of these days just for more our purposes I don't know if I could handle it Michael Hobbs and.

"Yeah and also as we've confronted so many times during the show the villains in american life are easy to find and they are always in places where they have lots of power and no accountability heads of churches. Like my talk about this. All the time that there's essentially no obligations for transparency or accountability for heads of churches. You can just like be the ceo of like the michael. Hobbs church in seattle washington and like no one will ever check your financial statements. No one will ever come and audit you like your congregation is trusting you completely and like i'm sorry but like that's a structure that encourages people to do exactly this kind of drifting goes all the way to sexual assault and sometimes it stops it just like you know stealing money. You're using it to buy a car. Whatever and like we shouldn't be shocked at like the ten thousandth time that we see somebody doing this and blaming satanists for like the thing that they're doing themselves i'll all by themselves us help from anybody including satan himself like leave satan out of it. He's busy it doesn't take satan. It just takes. No surveillance just takes mike. Yeah and cornerstone ends by basically summing up their philosophy on that. And i was reading. This and i was like the sounds. Oddly relevant to the cancel culture conversations. We're having right now the second so they right. We would be remiss in our duty. Is chris journalists if we could not offer some concrete suggestions in reflections. Some of our readers will expect us to follow the steps of matthew eighteen. Fifteen to seventeen starting with private confrontation. This passage gives christ's instructions on what to do quote if your brother sins against you and the process stops if the brother repents privately. We have to remarks on this passage. I mike has already been confronted. Numerous times over the years by many concerned. Chris can friends acquaintances church leaders. Mike knows what the bible says about truthfulness integrity infidelity. He is responsible to put into practice. What he already knows second. This is not a private dispute between mike. Warren cana magazine. A public figure is susceptible to public. Scrutiny and criticism. Matthew eighteen is not violated when public figures are publicly review. Okay but don't you love. I love this. They're offering scriptural basis for a call out. It's lit yes. I also think. I mean if the story demonstrates anything. It is the fact that the lack of cancel culture is worse than cancer. Culture having internal mechanisms of accountability is good. Because you stop people like this in their tracks before they can become like massive financial drifters and like make up a bunch of jeffries. We talk a lot about how like public shaming and sort of call outs can have this element of toxicity to them which is absolutely true but it's also very important to police ethical norms within a community one. Then they also have an action plan. Which i really. They like if mike were to seek forgiveness and restoration. What could the church expect to see. As evidence of the genuineness of his repentance. The following principles should apply to any. Chris can leader who has manifestly fallen one. Repentance repentance is fundamental to christianity. Denotes a complete.

Emily wilder gave an interview to the press. I was just cancelled. She told the online california publication. Sf gate wilder noted the irony of her so called cancellation launched by a conservative student group at her alma mater given that it's usually republicans stoking fear about cancel culture. Don't cancel culture won't come for you to it won't just focus on conservatives and republicans it'll come for all of us that's how bad this cancel. Culture mindset is they tell us not even the dead this cancel culture mania on the left is going too far abe lincoln george washington. These people are heroes. Apparently animals aren't safe either. Last month after a kentucky derby winning horse failed a drug test. His trainer offered an explanation. It was like a cancel culture kind of a thing so they're reviewing in order to grasp the amorphous meaning of cancel culture and it's rising social currency. Will i turn to its precursor political correctness and a recent episode of the podcast. You're wrong about co host michael. Hobbs tracked its earliest usage. The first reference that i could find to it was actually in china under mao. Let's talk about how the press wasn't politically correct. Actually started out as a term that liberals would kind of apply to people to their left. It was away within left wing movement. Organizing of saying. You're trying to impose the standard of purity but then you also have the rush limbaugh usage. Right yeah i mean rush. Limbaugh did something in the late eighties. It was actually very innovative. He started doing segments on his show that were basically the liberal of the week. Hempstead texas the cheerleader controversy. Rages on the school district down. There is very much concerned ladies and gentlemen of lawsuits by the now gang a bunch of others if they ban pregnant girls from being cheerleaders. And i'm thinking about this and we're gonna have pregnant cheerleaders. You're going to have the football team break. The huddle leaders breakwater way of finding these anecdotes. That all illustrated the same concept right that there were these oversensitive preening liberals that. We're gonna freak out if you did anything that even remotely offended them and it was just a new outrage. Every single day and that approach has really taken over the right wing media ever since but now the term political correctness seems to become a little shopworn cancel. culture seems to have replaced it. The tropes of political correctness have come back in word for word exactly the same the same sort of use of anecdote over statistics the same slippery slope arguments the same moral panic the anytime minorities gay people black people trans people start to become more visible in the culture. There is this explosion of anxiety that casts them as much more powerful than they are and much more threatening than they. Are that if we start using the pronouns. That trans people want soon. We won't even have a concept of gender anymore. You have to project into these absurd dystopia and scenarios to find a reason to be concerned about these extremely reasonable six. It's the same arguments that we've had really throughout time that we should not change. There's a database about so-called cancel culture. I've been totally obsessed with this thing called the canceled people database. Which is exactly what it sounds like. It's basically a crowd source effort to identify every single case of people who have been quote unquote canceled. There's extremely famous people on there and there's normal workers but then there's like professors who were fired after a student filed a complaint. A normal thing that happens at universities. There's a guy on there who was beheaded after he showed some cartoons of muhammad two classes in france. There's also one of the real housewives of orange county who lost a beverage endorsement when she tweeted some sort of covid truth or stuff to me. It's a perfect example of one of the ways that moral panics function in society is they lump together all of these events that really have nothing to do with each other. You find that mostly. These stories aren't even true. Yes one of the cases on the cancel. People database is a guy named matthew halls an orchestra conductor who was fired from the oregon bach festival. And if you read the description on the council people database. It says that the reason he was fired is because he was chatting to a black friend. he's british and he affected. I guess an offensive sounding southern accent as a joke and a white woman overheard them and complained and then he got fired. His blocked friend has said. I wasn't offended by this. It was totally fine and yet he gets fired anyway. This story spent months bouncing around the internet. You can still find all kinds of stories about it a couple of months after this. The oregonian gets the documents in which the university of oregon describes why he was fired and it turns out that there were four complaints of sexism against him. You know there's something like two hundred people on the cancel people database. And i can't go through. And debunk all of them. Because we would be here all day but a lot of the ones that i've looked into as soon as you do any kind of good faith inquiry into what actually happened with this person. They're always much more complicated than they seem. At first i think a good example is something that came out a couple of days ago. That princeton is no longer going to require classics majors to learn greek and latin. And this is of course. Something that came up word for word in the political correctness panic. There was a lot of panic around you know. They're not teaching. Shakespeare to kids.

"From Brian, the Hallmark movie with the gay couple. You were disappointed that there wasn't too much about it. Well, Brian emailed us. He's in his mid sixties gay. He's been partnered for 33 plus years in Ohio, and he actually really liked it. He did. Oh, good. Yeah, well, and what he said was, it was more just that it was he was struck by how just past the spaghetti itwas That you know that the parents had a gay son. It was presented as normal. And didn't feel weird. Yes, OK. He has a great point. It was a past the spaghetti moment. I do appreciate that and acknowledge that my point was, it was kind of like they made it seem like they were going to be the main. All of the hoopla to me made it seem like the gay couple was going to be because you know, every one of these. Yes, every one of these ridiculous movies. Have a main couple. My point was, they made such a hoopla over. Oh, my goodness were including the gays, and I thought they were going to be the main couple. But no, They were the mashed potatoes. They were the side and I loved. He's right to point that out. I love how matter of fact it was. My my main beef was. I wanted them to be the beef. I wanted them to be the meat. I wanted them to be the steak. I wanted them to be the terror side dish. I didn't want them to be the stuffing. I wanted them to be the turkey and they were not with Brian. He said that he went into it, knowing he was gay folks in it, but not The hoopla, you know that we saw about it? That's yeah. Different expectations, but But I will give look now you know, I try to balance things out when I go on my little rampage is here. That angered me with Hallmark, but I will give Hallmark credit Lex and I haven't so lifetime did this movie that they shot and I Santee, and it aired recently called the Christmas Listing. And my buddy and producer. Ted was in that movie. Now he snuck his way on Now, when I say producer Ted was in that movie. What I mean to say is a picture of him is on the refrigerator in a scene of that movie, but, hey, details people details on all matters. Now I watched that just because I wanted to see if Ted snuck his way onto the movie. That was horrible. It was horrible at the the The lighting was horrible. It made the movies on Hallmark look like something you would see on American movie classics. Uh, it looks like it really. It made it look made. Hallmark movies look like Orson Welles produced it. There you go down a little thing for you. Um, it made it look like a Francis made Hallmark look like Francis Ford Coppola touched it. This was horrible. Home market least knows how to light. They all look the same, You know, but the production values are decent. I like this lifetime movie. Now I know I'm going to get hate because it was shot here, but But I'm gonna be on it's just cause it was made here. I'm still gonna critique it honestly. I learnt the I do love that They actually shot a Christmas movie in a place that has no hallelu hallelu, But I'm gonna be honest. It looked like Kenny made it. With with his iPhone. Sorry, Kenny. Um so I'm gonna applaud Hallmark. They at least know how to make these things look good. So There we go. Okay? Yeah, yeah. Little positive if yes, so you have if you had to pick one to watch to recommend, Oh, the Hallmark movie because they look good. And they they look nice. And they know how to make the they turn these out like a chocolate factory. I mean, you know, they make 47 of them a year, So it's become obvious to me. I'm gonna have to send you some of these short movies. I've shot of myself in the mirror. Assad, standby for those. I'll be waiting. Oh, wow. I'll be waiting. Yeah, Anyway. Okay, Dawn. I'm very curious about this because we've all watched the crown on And then what happens is when you watch a show like that. Then you become interested in the real crap That happened. Uh, you are listening to a podcast. I like this podcast. Um, my talker suggested it to me and I've really been enjoying it. It's called you're wrong about And they do a five part Syriza on Princess Diana, Um, starting with the courtship than a second episode is the wedding. The third episode is the affairs. The fourth is the divorce and then the fifth one. I don't know the title here, but they're about an hour and a half so a little bit longer. But this podcast is by a couple of journalists. Sarah Marshall, who is currently is she's written for many outlets. Um and then her co host is Michael Hobbs, who and writes for Huffington Post, So they look more into stories that maybe have been misconstrued by the media. He Michael Hobbs in this Syriza He has read all the biographies about Princess Diana and Prince Charles. And so you're really getting. It's basically like the stuff that the crown is based on. But the crown has taking it taken it and turned it into whatever they wanted. You know, they have to make up dialogue and make up situations. So they take the basic things that we know about Diana all that we can know. And they turn it into a syriza. This really digs deep about what actually happened in some of the miss, Um Understandings that the public has ah, lot of it based on what the tabloids have told us. So it's really really great because you're like, Oh, that's what happened and Oh, wow, That's not the way the crown portrayed it. Um And you just get to know her on another level of that. I never really realized Esso. I would recommend that it's called you're wrong about and you'll have to sift through their other because this is this podcast at time magazine named The podcast. It was the second best of 2019. So they have things on like the electoral College. Um, all kinds of things like Harvey Milk's killer and how that was covered. This guy claimed that junk food made him do it. That was part of his defense. So they dig into that. There's just anything from Anna Nicole Smith to, um they really like to focus on how women are portrayed. And in the media, the O. J. Simpson trial. They do that as well. They do want on Jessica Simpson. So they do the reading for you kind of love the research for you and put it into a podcast that I really been enjoying. Can I ask you what? Because I've watched a documentary on Netflix called Diana in her own words, and I'm going through that right now and hearing her talk about Camilla and how early in the relationship He realized that Camilla Woz basically a third member, that was one of my big takeaways. What was one of the big takeaways so far for you in this podcast with Diana that made you go? Oh, that's interesting. Okay, not to put on the spot, but no, it's OK. Probably the most recent thing was that She had more affairs than Prince Charles did Now he started affairs from the You know, he had that affair with Camilla going on the whole time he was. He's really just been in love with Camilla his whole life. But, you know, she had a least three affairs during their marriage as well, whether or not that was backlash, or, you know, revenge affairs or whatever. Actually, I think she just wanted to feel some closeness and and love from someone, Um It really good digs deep into the royal family and all of their Just the layer upon layer of what's expected of her and how it was doomed from the beginning and what you're talking about Diana and our own words. Actually, this is that's interesting because Lot of his source there from two books. One is by Tina Brown. The other is by Andrew Morton, who wrote Diana and her own words. Those were that was actually she started leaking all of that.

Then it just wasn't you said you would send him the money to to rent it, but you didn't until afterwards when it was so not worth the money. Yeah, and then she sent him off to a vent mode. It's just said or whatever and said sorry corpse bride was bad. Very good. Good good follow-up question. Okay.

Yeah, so I don't know if both of you have listened to the Obesity epidemic episode of you're wrong about and then I've listened to every episode wrong about thank you very much to our face and then at the same time or maybe Sorry, my my thing just went out cuz Chloe was trying to call me continue at the same time or just before that episode came out Michael Hobbs also wrote an article about obesity. That was extremely good for Huffington Post. I believe that people still I see people referencing still online all the time and he did a ton of really good and interesting Research into it. And one of the people I think met him through that either through the article or through that episode of be wrong about was a person named Aubrey Gordon who is at your fat friend on Twitter who is or has recently is about to put out a book called what we don't talk about when we talk about fat. I think it's called and she's like but for end up until recently I think it was kind of writing anonymously online as your fat friend and she was writing about like, you know things about being fat your entire life and like what you know what people don't know about it and stuff like that. And so they connected and forged a friendship and have started now a podcast called maintenance phase about it's here's the description debunking the junk science behind Health Wellness scams.

What's with these storage cabinets, extremely high prices or listed with girlsnames, an identical units selling for different amounts. A suggestion being that actually, this was about trafficking. Young girls in August saved the Children. Rallies were held across the country driven by such Cuban on conspiracy theorists who allege That the Democratic Party is behind a slew of sex trafficking rings. But let's not put the onus solely on the paranoid fantasies of Q and non Kool Aid drinkers. Last month, a shocking story It was all over the mainstream media in Georgia. U. S marshals busted a child sex trafficking ring saving 39 Children. It was called Operation not forgotten. NBC CABLE News The Associated Press The New York Times By the time the story caught the attention of Huffington Post reporter Michael Hobbs counted 39 kids rescued from a trailer and nine adults arrested. For sex trafficking. Such a frightful narrative, Got one Twitter user to exclaim quote. How is finding 39 missing Children in a double wide trailer here in Georgia? Not the biggest news story in America, a tweet that was shared 159,000 times. The answer, as Michael Hobbs figured out in no time flat was because the story wasn't true. The US Marshal Service doesn't actually investigate trafficking cases. They just look for missing Children. And.

"People want to not die but they also want to play golf and it's hard to balance those priorities. Welcome to your wrong about where every joke is revealed as a tragedy. Ooh That's quite good and on seem thank you. I didn't even know you knew about this one. I know what I've learned from. Vh1's I love the seventies. So I don't know if you can call that Sarah Marshall I'm working on a book about the Satanic Panic and Michael. Hobbs I'm a reporter for the Huffington Post and you can support us at Patriotair Dot com slash wrong about and things are feeling tight right now. And you're already supporting us there. You can unsupported us. Yes because this is an interesting time when you were a kid in the nineties over like I wish I could live in an interesting time and now do you want to go back and talk to that kid and be like listen. The boy meets world. Cast is going on the second of all no. You don't talk about another interesting time today. Which is the nineteen seventies. Yes and it's beautiful. Exploding automobiles what you remember about the exploding Ford Pinto. I just know that they exploded. This was a tactic of great murder. Yes or people. I don't know if people found it funny at the time but I remember it being discussed as a funny thing I encountered about it in two thousand yes. I think I was introduced to this by a joke. To there's a joke in Wayne's world or Wayne's world to where a car is following them and they slowdown in car runs into them like barely a tableau yeah and then the Pinto explodes. I don't know it's interesting because problems in American car manufacturer are sexual sore spot. Her Americans think especially during that period and I wonder if you like exploding. Pinto seemed funny at the time because it was like a gallows humor extreme version of maybe other problems that were happening and it also we will get into this more but also goes back to the way that we don't really take car accidents seriously as tragedies to rain to think of them as it's the fault of the people who are in the accident or something that we don't think of forty thousand auto accident deaths every year as a public health crisis the way that we do with a gun deaths and even with gun deaths were not doing great at the serious taking. Yeah but it's also I mean this was also the largest auto recall ever at the time. It was actually one of the biggest news stories of the late. Nineteen seventies was the way that this car had been designed to be really really easy to explode. But I've been looking forward to this episode because it's kind of a throwback to twenty eighteen. Ywca when we first started out when we were young and dewey and every wasn't about a woman's life being slowly destroyed. I know and back when our episodes were like short and they were like simple. This episode also has debunking then a debunking of the debunking which is very throwback for us. Oh Yeah you love doing that. Yes yeah I feel like do you remember in the ninety s when Gwyneth paltrow was doing some probably atrocious screwball comedy and they asked her why she was doing this like lightweight role and she said no accents? No corsets no crying this kind of version of that that like. I only read one book for this episode at my notes are like only fifty one pages long. This is not going to be like a two hour. Long episodes. It's like a little cute. Myth Debunk Debunk Outta here. Kind of episodes a cute little duckling of an episode. Yes so this is you Gwyneth. Paltrow taking a break from making authentic oven roasted vegan. Pizza just like. Have your one cigarette of the week and let loose this is. This is going to be easy and fun in Quarantine Company. This is what we're going for. Yes we'll get back to the human horror in the next couple of weeks. I don't worry because I work on this show. So it's so. We begin with the context of the auto industry in the late. One Thousand Nine Hundred Sixty S. I love what you're like. This is going to be a fun episode brain into like the auto industry amid sanctuary. America started its loom like decline. Well I mean I also think we're we're starting with carnage but not the kind of carnage that we're used to on this show. I mean basically the context for the Ford Pinto is that driving was extremely dangerous in the late nineteen seventies. One thing that we've discovered on this show is we've talked about how society had to discover the concept of child abuse and society had to discover the concept of domestic abuse. Like hey these things happen in their bed and like cyclically again and again yeah. It's exactly the same thing with car safety. So the idea that cars can kill you and the idea that auto crashes are like controllable by people and their responsibility of large corporations is not a natural idea. There was about four decades. There were basically the car. Companies successfully argued that they weren't responsible for car. Crashes the thing is we are supposed to keep the car driving like if the hubcap falls off when you're driving that's our problem but if you crash the car into a tree that's you so there's no reason for seatbelts. There's no reason for us to design cars to save you so it's very amid sanctuary. American personal responsibility. You're on your own now Jack. You bought it totally. And so the concept that car crashes should be reduced and can be reduced was a completely new concept and essentially. Didn't exist before. Ralph Nader wrote unsafe at any speed. And when was that nineteen sixty five? Okay so just before the. Pinto starts getting designed in nineteen sixty seven. We have silent spring and we have unsafe at any speed. Both of which are books that are basically saying like corporations are bad and a lot of people don't know that at the time the idea of sort of environmental risks and structural risks was something that people had to sort of have their hands held and taught very slowly. Can you talk about the kind of post war to nuclear a view of corporate and ovation in America? I mean I think it's so long ago that we can't fathom this. There was a time when corporations were seen as essentially benign. I mean one thing. That's really interesting about the about unsafe at any speed and about this sort of growing realization. That auto safety is a thing is the extent to which people didn't know that carmakers had control over this stuff. Har- crashes were seen as these sort of act of God personal responsibility. There's nothing anybody can do. But what starts coming out in? Nineteen sixty s is more and more of like wait a minute. These companies are acting really irresponsibly and they're selling products that are making more likely to die. And so the big thing in the auto industry at the time was of course planned obsolescence. Right that it's not than they make a car. And then they hit rate on it every year gets a little bit safer a little bit safer a little bit better. They're basically every three years they're just completely starting over there. Like let's add fins or like. Let's add a wooden steering wheel and safety is not playing into this. They're just adding all these weird bells and whistles and so one thing that the carmakers start doing is there's these dashboards that look cool. They're like they had like a shelf design with like this beat Amish way in it and they're really cool looking but this shelf design ends up decapitating people when they get no. Oh is it lake at neck level vehicle? Oh and another thing was the steering column used to just like pay. Oh people because the car makers were like well don't crash into stuff. If you don't want a big metal rod through your chest this is also linked. I I think I also learned this on. Vh One that in the seventies lawn darts were a popular toy in cold was at elect kits through dark city. Exactly Yeah like. Do you really think that people are going to not crash into stuff like ever. Is that your plan? Well this is. What's really interesting? So there's old because people try and suing the car companies over this old federal court decisions where the judges basically side with the car companies. So this is a quote from one of the judges in nineteen sixty six. The intended purpose of an automobile does not include its participation in collisions with other objects the defendant also knows that it's automobiles may be driven into bodies of water but it is not suggested that the defendant has a duty to equip them with pontoons which is like. I. This is a classic to me. Legal Argument Food Group of Lake. Yeah I'm going to compare this quite reasonable request to this other thing. That's allegedly a corollary. But really is like ludicrous and exaggurated in any reasonable person would be like well of course not and like that. That sort of false equivalences knew he. I think he sees that a lot and bad faith. Arguments in the court system to that judges often fall for these things that are very principled but in reality cars are not driving into the water a lot but they are crashing into each other a lot at the time fifty thousand people a year were dying in car accidents and the population of the US was thirty percent smaller than it is. Now so you were about twice as likely back then to die in a car crash as you are now This is a quote from an article that the history of auto safety that all linked to in the show notes. A culture of low expectations concerning auto safety was cultivated by the industry. The US people generally did not expect to survive serious accidents and accept her safety researchers they were not cognizant of the degree to which crash worthiness could be designed into cars. So it's basically just like well if I get a car crash I'm going to die. There's nothing like Ford and GM and Chrysler can actually do about it. Yeah it's amazing because even now I think of car companies as shirking responsibility at every turn but there are certain number of cultural norms that they've had to accept like I assume in my and I have assumed for my whole life as a car driving individual that the vehicle that I'm getting into and trying to move around a city is going to have been designed based on the assumption that it might crash into something at some point and that that's part of its life also that it has pontoons the period. So now we get to the design of the Ford Pinto. Let me send you a photo of this carring on. Pinto has a bearing current because it does not make me. Think I of a horse that makes me think of bean. We have a very spirited argument about which decade loves beans more. Aren't you yeah? It's cute right? Yeah I would drive that it is. I WANNA say a hatchback. It's tomato Red Blinking. Malian typewriter and it looks like you could have a car chase in like it. Looks like it will be fun to drive yet. Looks like it handles well. It looks like I'm imagining driving it. Data freeway with all these like boxy like buicks and Oldsmobiles i Mike zipping around between them. Because I'm a I'm on my way to a baby sitting emergency or I'm like I'm Charlie's angel pretending to be a babysitter like that's the energy of this car and so I just another one where Pinto in a field with horse next to it which is very literal. Yeah this is their ad where they're like no no. Don't think of the being. The the context of this car is that you can't really see this from the photo but it's very small. It's considered a subcompact really so it's like European style and so basically what's happening in the auto industry at the time is before the rise of the Japanese car companies. The American auto industry was basically a three-part monopoly. It had consolidated to the point where there are three companies according to David Halberstam the reckoning which I highly recommend. They're basically. There was kind of nominally competition between the car companies but not really like they all knew each other they were all in Detroit one year. Ford sells more cars one year. Gm sells more cars but like they have these product categories. Everyone sort of has their marketing stuff in place. It's not really a competitive industry. And it's only in the late nineteen sixties when Honda and Toyota and Nissan show up with better cars. They're very cheap. They drive well. They're more reliable and all the sudden. There's real competition and the big. Three automakers get scared. Oh because in Japan it's a cultural norm to not let drivers be killed by steering columns including people are into it for some and so in the late nineteen sixties Lee IACOCCA. Who's the head of Ford at the time? Basically goes to his engineers and says we need a car that competes with the VW beetle and the Toyota Corolla and all these little small cheap cars like the hip. Young kids are driving these days and so he basically gives them the order that no matter what the car has to be at the most two thousand pounds it has to be light and it has to cost less than two thousand dollars and what's two thousand dollars in today's money that's eight thousand bucks okay. Which is actually a good deal for a brand new car. That's a car of the people. Yes and so basically his marching orders are you need to get this car to market as fast as possible. So at the time the average car took about forty three months to design and build and whatever and get everything ready for the Pinto. They did it in twenty five months they just like rammed this thing through production. Just get it onto the market. Get it under this price. Yeah they did that with the too. I mean those have all been sent back to the nineteen fifties now and so one of the decisions that they make in this rush to get the car out. The door is most cars at the time. Had The gas tank above the rear axle. So basically if you're sitting in the backseat of a car you're essentially sitting over the gas tank. That's where it is in most cars and the Nice thing about that is..

O. B. B. E. S. R. E. F. he's verified he's verified I guess he's out in Seattle he said he went to a hospital for tests for the virus right if you have insurance is a hundred to five hundred dollars a week yeah one hundred to five hundred dollars the cost with insurance if you don't sixteen hundred dollars now there was a lock free the net not yet evidently so there's no such thing as yeah we got a plan I was going what is supposed to be these tests will be available that's what they're saying they have with this is what he broke so you can check them out on I'll be told the truth or not but if that's the case we'll get afforded you can't and therein lies the problem of the situation as it applies to medicine in this country right now eight seven seven forty four match we open up the phone lines getting your thoughts on you know maybe how you have changed your lifestyle even over the last three weeks because of the corona virus there's a lot of stuff going on right now rex you'll have the first word here on the album show how are you I'm doing just fine the day I drive for a company that picks up elderly people and takes him to doctor's appointments all day I retired years ago selling cars needed something to do and I feel sorry for some of the people but I've got a camera Lysol and wipe that out every passenger I have to spray the car down white because I'm a little paranoid I don't want you know I don't want to get sick but yeah that's just a little challenging it's a lot more work they have to do that but I wash my hands every day but I gotta I gotta tell you thought might just once a day well I wash my hands a lot more than that okay so you said every day okay okay I misspoke okay well that's a WrestleMania rex let me ask you this in your line of work you said you're paranoid for all the right reasons do you find yourself being more paranoid today than you were say three weeks ago yeah if the if the Michigan now and you know I I guess I'm kind of guy who would go on say it can't happen to me but I'm taking every precaution I can and I found something weird online here that the newspaper article it says warning of virus in nineteen eighty one two authors appear to predict coronavirus decades before the outbreak dean Koontz's thriller the odds of darkness published in eighty one tells the story of a legal man made virus in more on the same Chinese city where the corner corona virus broke out in other spooky with coincidence some doomsday book written by American psychic Sylvia Browne also published in two thousand eight predicted there'd be an ammonia like the old hands them back into twenty twenty right now you're starting to freak me out resident we appreciate the call wow see this is all the stuff that goes into the read article nineteen eighty with this kid will learn karate from this guy who owned an apartment thank you I'm reading a dean Koontz book right now I better disinfected then throw it out I'm the only one to take a chance wax on it here we go Matthew you're on the verge album show how aria again are you guys doing all right yeah I I travel for kind of funny clinical research but in general we change the ideal of when we go out to hospitals and see patients in any deaths that I go to are any offices like go to any claims that quiet or tell them to go to we've stepped it up as far as you know bringing wakes with you in small small Lysol cans type things wearing light staying quiet because if you're actually flying or something like that mass on the face don't do much for you that's more for the outside person versus you the individual so that's kind of a moot point in general but the light gloves are a good idea just that it gives you a slight it doesn't retain so I mean like you said your question was very compared to three weeks ago three weeks ago it's you know look at the west coast really is the only affected area right now you see it start to multiply so you you have to be more realistic that you know it's going to spread there's going to be higher numbers and then you have to see what the medical community as far as the CDC you know will do why do you think the media is overstating or understating this or you think it's affecting people mentally I personally think that it's a little overstated I think you have to have cautions however I will say that I do think you have to see where the virus and its spread I would be more concerned that the immediate numbers were quite a bit higher like I can you know three percent to five percent to ten percent mortality rate something of that issue but I had some one or some one and a half percent in the spread not really jumping yet I I'm not as concerned until those numbers appear all right I think we we in the Midwest habit bandaged that we get to see what happens on the west coast you know and they can look at those numbers and say in two to three weeks that could be us thank you we appreciate the call and for you to N. ng and how many times are we said yeah let those people on the west coast deal with that and then we'll we'll we'll see what transpires but you know it's it's interesting so far from the calls that we've taken that people are starting to batten down the hatches will you know when governor Whitmer announced last night about ten thirty at night as a matter of fact that they were to know the two cases in Michigan both involved middle aged visuals one man one woman one was on an international flight and had been in a series of them and the other domestic flight so now all of a sudden that raises an eyebrow at the mystic flight in Michigan so there you go let's go to Dave Dave welcome to the Ellen show how are you good afternoon how you doing okay I called in because I really haven't changed anything and I'll say why I work in the auto retail industry I've talked to customers all day long I always just been in the habit of having to wash my hands after talking to

"Yeah. I was telling Hannah was trying to watch the debates, but that I was like too busy working on this website. So they're takes the reason it's related is because takes new series would be on there as a work. Yeah. End. So would the you're wrong about podcast up. Yeah, yeah. Yeah. Just like anything that, like mentions or is about queer shit anything. Michael Hobbs is a is a gaming. Right. He is. He's a game. So would every episode of your on about then qualify for the, the for the, the website was called? I, I think the queer works map because I started to call it a podcast this. I think the way that might work is I might have an entry for the wrong about podcasts and that I would have individual podcast episodes that are specifically related to so you would have, like kind of parent entities of lying a pocket two episodes in that also like an album like the whole king, Princess albums would all be on there. And then also the individual songs because those songs themselves can like, cause I feel like the album will allude to gay Sung's and then the songs allude to other gay shit. So it's all like like that. I like that sending you a website. I don't know if this will help you as data sources or as a, as a just a some thinking on how to structure things or anything, but this is a this is a website that does something kind of like what you're talking about. But just for podcasts, Colo, it organizes. This is the first one. I've seen do this. It doesn't just organized by. Casted also does it by creator. So you can you can make your own creator profile.

All right. Should we do my obsession? Yeah. All right. Let's do it y'all. It's going to be quick. So. Farted. So. Quit doing OBI. Relations. I know that feel I had some bad old them tools. Beans. Okay. So I also had like kind of a little also meaning compared to Ben Aaron obviously had a very intense obsession. I also had a kind of a light week on of sessions. I was very busy. I was playing a lot of games in my new VR space. You know, bring it in your face bringing it to people's houses, mom, tried it out. I think that was after we recorded right? I didn't tell you about that writer. Yeah. No, we brought it over to my parents house last weekend to have anyone who wanted to try it. Lucas girl brother looks girlfriend Federico's their dad was there. But aunt Brown is the only person who got to use it because she tried it. I didn't take it off until the battery died. So. Better less. It actually wasn't fully charged me over there. So it didn't last quite this long bit, Ken less like two, and a half to three hours. So isn't that forever? Which I think is a good thing at least for the stage in our human evolution. 'cause, you know, she would have been there for even longer. So she needs some are. Yeah. Exactly. So, so that's been really fun playing games and stuff been really quite busy actually actually wish I've been playing more games. But there's one youtuber that I've been really enjoying this week actually found him because of the art because what when we were researching games his video on beat sabre was one of the ones we came across, and it's, it's called them beat sabre is not a nightmare in the reason. It's called that is because every one of his other videos is like this game is a nightmare. Here's why like everyone of them. But then and they're not all even bad reviews as just like the way he structures is reviews. But this one was a good review and he couldn't even bring himself to say it was a nightmare because it's just like a personal game. His I don't know what his actual name is. But his YouTube name is up is not jumped and he's a British guy he has a cat. And if he ons, I believe, department probably someplace in a city in England, and he's also a science teacher for his day job. So like his last, he's made some videos recently, which were like explaining the big bang and how the universe came into existence and stuff because I think he's like he's either just like high school science teacher, like general science or his chemistry teacher. He mentioned the head chemistry review. Chemistry review a chemistry degree. But yeah, we found him because like recently been doing a lot of reviews of VR games because he like recently got VR headset, and he's just like he's really good with editing. His cats, a he has a black cat whose name is said, and he talks to his Catt, like at least once episode usually end the cat response when he calls himself as he he's like like very intense. I enjoy it a lot. And yet, he's just kind of fun to watch any he has, like his teeth kind of stick out on the sides in they kind of look like fangs, that's that's England. I feel a youtuber kinda has you like you have at like cat. But like visibly out like talks talks. You're like I love this over like rightly so that's actually not just YouTubers. That's like every person that I ever. Yeah, yeah, yeah, I'm the best person ever, they have they have a cat may talk about it. They showed me a picture. Exactly. You're like dog like in that quality about you about cats. Wow. Yeah. I never thought about it that way. But you're right. But a low he's just he's just very funny. And I just enjoy him. So that's, that's pretty much it we watched a bunch from the other night. What's up is not jump. I sent you a link to the videos talking about for beat sabre his teeth. Do look like Feng. Don't they? Yes. Very much. Yeah. But is I would check them out if you have an interest in video games, he these are not our favorite things, but they might be somebody favorite things he did a lot of for a while. It seemed like his, I think is relatively new to like having any kind of following on YouTube, but a lot of his videos before he started doing the VR review stuff were fallout for their like different like commercials in scenes in like there's a Bob Ross one. Like an episode of Bob Ross that recreated in fallout for using like a bunch of like Maude since Steph to help with lighting in camera angles and things like that. So if that's something you might be into there's a lot of those, there's a lot of like I said, like VR, views and stuff in honestly, like most of his stuff is worth watching just for the just for the funniness, and then the most recent, so the episode the videos called existence is a nightmare, and then existences nightmare part two. Those are the ones where he's like talking science in some ways. I mean he's like you know, chemistry for relatives for like I mean, he's got more subscribers than most people in the world. I'm sure but like he hasn't had like he's a million subscribers yet or anything. So I think he's still finding his voice a little bit. You know, but I would I would recommend checking him out. He seems like a good dude. Any likes cats? Hell you, so you know how much better could he be? Not much better. He's does a lot of really good prop work. His fun to watch. His videos are entertaining. I do like every single other video literally is like this game is there's not another, that's not a nightmare. But it is the perfect if game it's good if I could have gotten away with it. I would have made that my obsession this week because it's made me sweat, like I haven't allowed exercise to it years this week. Loud. So I swear it so much sweating right now because I'm. I feel like it's Admiral amount when I exercise like fucking ridiculous. I'm like, okay. I. Everyone hears. Go get it. Yeah, I take you when I went to China, like everybody that was worried about me and it was walking around. It was just like from being in a hot climate. Oh. And then starting at my new job. Like since go Brown also works there, I feel like understood for the first time in my life because he already like laid the groundwork. So I don't have to be like I just, just Unedic. I just went all the time because everybody knows that about me over, and he, he laid the ground. Yeah. My dad was just this morning, saying that 'cause he was sweating profusely like you're making me nervous 'cause he was sitting in the sunshine like sweater. It was like can you, please in the shade? You're making me he's like he's like, yeah, when I went to India, they were all really, they were all really worried about me because. Sweat loaf. Yeah. I've just got a sheen about Kylie never sweats Espy like super hot schist in direct sunlight, and then she start sweating little bit. And she's like, oh, man of so sweaty like not has a fin like a fine. Booking understanding. Inside air conditioning, sixty five degrees. Oh my gosh Brown. Family problems has checked. I have, but it's great lake miss. I just like Emag rehydrated because. Just like all the time. Yeah. You find those people are like no sweat. I'm like, yeah. Maybe. What? Traits up here is child. Wow. Treats open, if there were a container of treats, open, Henry would be like gives me. Suppose? In Los, like out of the house, he would not be up fisheries. I don't think that's supposed to pay that. So, and then even if he were on he would eat like to think it border. Komo would probably the entire thing. Fucking loves those treats that's amazed. Trae ticket. He's great. Yeah. Thank you for that contribution. By fucking definition treats are good. Let's do homework. Let's my homework. I'm Ben and here's my homework.

Generation Screwed

"Into it with michael hobbs michael is a reporter for offing and post and the co host of a podcast called you're wrong about this past december he wrote a piece for highline called generation screwed i mean life is objectively harder for us and we use in the tagline of the story that millennials are facing the scariest financial future of any generation since the great depression and i spent months asking communists like is this accurately are we allowed to say this in the article and they all said yes this is unequivocally true so in the peace you trace the the current financial moment back to some of the factors that led to it can you piece together some of the policy decisions or changes in government assistance practices or changes even in the way like people work and play the stock market that brought us here i think it's important to realize how constructed these political times that we're in really are when you look at something like student debt america's the only country that has student debt like this america's the only country where people are paying off their student debt into their forties and that is based on decisions that we have made and so when you start looking back into the history you really find a round the eighties is really the breaking point that is a time when three unrelated things happened so first of all the financial sector took over the economy where companies were expected to be as officials as possible and so we hear a lot about things like outsourcing to indonesia outsourcing to china but will companies really started doing in the nineteen eighties was outsourcing quote unquote to contractors so the people that clean your offices at night those used to be your employees now those are contracted out employee's and so the more you squeeze for efficiency the lower wages go the worse working conditions get and the more removed you get from the wellbeing of your workers and so that hyper officiency has translated into work that just is of lower quality than it was thirty or forty years ago you're less likely to have a pension you're less likely to get health insurance with your job you're less likely to get severance pay you're less likely to have any kind of career ladder upwards so work has gotten worse at the same time the safety net has really gone away and it's really this whole narrative personal responsibility but you've also talked about on the show that we started getting fan i know we this is just the greatest street what happened was it became this thing that the point of welfare wasn't to alleviate poverty anymore the point of welfare was to get people into work so more and more welfare programs started having these little eligibility criteria and asterisks next to them basically and so housing assistance kind of went away and cash payments scott harder to get and food stamps got her to get and just in this slow drip drip nickel and dime way there's fewer and fewer forms of welfare fetter available to people and so if anything goes wrong there's really nothing stopping that from completely spiraling into disaster so those are the first to depressing things the third depressing is that housing has gone insane that essentially american cities are not allowed to grow at this point and so if you look at all of the places in america we're now at we're a knowledge economy right most of us are sitting behind desks most of us are not growing things are working in factories the vast majority of the economy and yet all of the
