The twenty thirty six games are now for bid. The proposal was floated. in last. week's berliner morgenpost in a column written by franck koale ski a lead organizer of the two thousand and eighteen european track and field championships in berlin and ricard ming. The president of the german olympic association. The two men began by observing. What maybe obvious that berlin could not host the twenty thirty six games because berlin hosted the nineteen thirty six weeks which were by then german. Chancellor adolf hitler and held in stadiums festooned with swastikas. You may remember. There was some unpleasantness back. Then so berlin is out or is it. Kurowski wrote quote so why not send a completely new strong signal of peace and reconciliation in twenty thirty six a signal that does not hide from history but takes up the responsibility that comes from it.

"Sean connery and the gun. Barrel iraqi jet pack a fake funeral. James bond punching a woman bonds french connection cryptic latin inscriptions. That's on a chapel wall water cannons shooting the bad guys from the aston martin db five and of course a fight. These are some of the things will examine as we look into the pre title sequence in the one thousand nine hundred sixty five james bond. Movie thunderball hi. This is dan sylvestry. Tom izzo and spy movie navigator dot com. Please join us as we're cracking the code of the pre title sequence in thunderball. So let's go. We see for the first time in the gun barrel. It's not bob. Simmons the stunt guy. It's sean connery goldfinger. It's fun and from this point on. We are actually going to see bond in the pre title sequences in the gun barrel and not a stunt man one a concept they needed to change the clip here as the aspect ratio for thunderball change from the previous movie so they couldn't reuse the clip that they had from the prior movies. One thing we haven't mentioned yet in our pre title sequence podcast series the origins of the gun barrel. We have mentioned the prato secrets in the nineteen. Thirty four million chrome passion in an earlier podcast. But we haven't yet talked about the ending to the nineteen th remove eight the great train robbery which ends with a gunman pointing the gun. View and firing. Some people think stain also influenced the golden barrel sequences that these things were around decayed and decades before bond was even written. So that's kind of cool and it actually is and then when you hear about how it was made it sound like it might have been in the back. Somebody's mind but when morris bender put that together he was just playing around and said. Hey if i shoot through this gun. Barrel i can do this. Pretty cool stuff. We had mentioned the pre tuchel secrets in the nineteen thirty four movie crummy that passion in an earlier podcast. We've seen in the first three. James bond ian production movies two circles that cross the screen and by the way. I have always thought those were the double. Oh that's just my take on it. I don't know it looks like it should be the double o but you're in thunderball when the gun barrel ends the gun barrel finally more to the first seen in the pre title sequence it doesn't just fade out like it did in the other movies it actually shows us part of the first seen within the gun barrel. First time this has happened. So this is kinda neat. This is cool and a great addition to the series and the circle shows the initials here j. b. and as the camera pans backwards it shows. Jb's blazoned on a casket. What again for about twenty seconds. We must think this is james bond dead again. It's the fourth movie by anne productions and his dead again in the beginning they just love killing them off right at the beginning of the movie. Yeah we remember from russia with love. Of course it wasn't him. It turns out but wow i don't know this makes me queasy and i don't know what to do because bonds debt already and i'm thinking wait a minute. There's another twenty one movies. How can this be. We know that. Now we're back then back then you didn't know it so there are some advantage the being in the future but this makes me queasy. I got bonded out on. This makes me want to have a separate coffee. Because i gotta wake up here. 'cause bonds dead. I'm just too nervous. Hang on oh. Hey we find a delicious coffee for you. By the way i mean. This is spy coffees and you can find them at spy coffees dot com and our listeners. Get twenty percent off with roast. Like spymaster dark rose or double agent medium. Rose which. I'm drinking right now or agent blend light roast in whole being ground and even some k cups make clandestine trip to spy coffees dot com and use the spike code. Sh- spy nath espy y. n. Av and you'll get twenty percents off at checkout all right. let's get back. I think i'm awake. We see as a funerals ending in the small beautiful french chapel. James bond on this inside balcony speaking with a woman who turns out to be his french six connection. I'm pleased to create. Is a lighter setting for these pre title sequence. Of course last two films been set at night giving a dangerous about ding atmosphere. This one feels more normal more inviting the viewer into a lot lighter feeling except it's a funeral the funeral the funeral with j. b. on it was really for jacques pouvoir who was specter number. Six who bond reveals murdered two of his colleagues. Now i'm wondering what is james bond doing at jack. Bu vars funeral it makes me wonder why a healthy. Why is he there. Now we don't offer killed to double o. agents or colleagues. Perhaps from the cia or the french bureau. Those french contact who's credited as mademoiselle the port says at least you've been saved. Air filter removing passed away. And you sleep so they told me it comes out. The bond is disappointed. He didn't get the kelham himself to son disappointed. You didn't killing meal such move on murder two of my colleagues. So maybe i'm listening to this thing too and i'm thinking maybe the french contact just told us what bond is doing there. In france he was going to kill ovar and maybe move are found out in states. This whole thing or something. I don't know yeah. If this is but buddha's funeral it looks to me like somebody beat onto it. She says he may have died in his sleep. But given that this is somebody bond was going to be going after.

The Nazi Hunter: Eli Rosenbaum on Tracking Down the World's Most Wanted Criminals

"Newly appointed attorney. General merrick garland has said he will renew the justice. Department's focus on the threat of white supremacists. Eli rosenbaum knows a thing or two about ideology for forty years. He has helped the department track down and hold former nazis accountable for their world war. Two crimes a law enforcement role that has earned him. The moniker of nazi hunter. Mr rosenbaum with us now. To talk about that moniker. And that mission mr rosenbaum. Welcome to people love the pod. Thank you great to be waiting. So yes you have been called the nazi hunter. I've seen the show on amazon prime. But what does that term mean in real life. Well it's not an expression. I'm particularly fond of because it suggests that this mission is something other than what it is which is professional law enforcement. We are not engaged in on or anything sort but we have been for four decades now simply investigating and taking legal action against participants in nazi crimes against humanity. Your father escaped nazi germany in nineteen thirty eight. I believe. can you share a little bit. About how your family history inspired this work. Y'all my dad. Got out of germany lived in dresden. His brother and his parents and they managed to get visas to this great country and were able to escape in nineteen thirty eight and the attorney. General merrick garland said in his recent testimony. I think all the time about how the united states saved my family my father graduated high school in newark new jersey and then started paying back the united states by going into the united states army and he was sent to north africa and to europe and served in the third infantry division and then when they realized that they actually needed german speakers they transferred to a psychological warfare branch unit in the us. Army the incident that changed my father's life and had a big impact on the shooter was when he was sent to a concentration camp by his commanding officer to go there in a jeep with two other men to see what the army had found the previous day when they liberated dot com word spread quickly in the region that something terrible was there and my dad's co wanted. Know what it was so my father went when i was fourteen years old and we were driving on the new york state through a blizzard heading north and there was nothing left to listen to the radio. We were talking. And i love hearing. My dad's were stories especially the funny ones. Anybody who serves the military s funny stories about food or whatever and then suddenly you said you know. I was sent dot com the day after its liberation and i though fourteen was a time when there wasn't much said really about the holocaust i knew what it was and i said what did you see and i'm like my father staring out the front window because it's pretty treacherous driving and i don't hear anything from my father and i look over to the driver seat and there i see dad with his eyes glistening their welled with tears in his mouth is open and he's trying to tell me and he couldn't speak and it was the first time i ever saw my cry men of that generation didn't want anyone to see them cry usually and we never did speak about it so my beloved father lived you know into this new century and so many many decades and we did speak about work with frequency when i was home but we never returned to the subject of you say you talked about your work with your father. How did that conversation or the job evolve over. The course of forty years work has changed quite a bit. When i started actually as a summer intern back in nineteen seventy nine. Never imagining that. This would become my life's work. We were overwhelmed with investigations. We had inherited the responsibility from the former immigration and naturalization service after the attorney general took it away from them because they had not succeeded and he's had up this new office the office of special investigations in the justice department criminal division and we had more work than could really keep up with and it turned out in the first few years that the we had inherited that actually had the most merit were ones that were based on tips received directly or indirectly from foreign governments. Which at that time was to say. Mostly the soviet union occasionally another government but generally the the soviet union which had mixed motives in these cases. We started being very proactive within a few years and by the five year point and they're after nearly all of the cases that we could develop to the point of prosecution. We're wants dan. We had initiated on our own and the methodology for that was to task our staff historians. We were the only law enforcement entity in the entire hemisphere that had its own complement of historians. They were the people who could dig for the needles and haystacks and we tasks them with responsibility for keeping an eye open for the surviving remnant of personnel records and other documents that identified perpetrators or perpetrators this. They did with great success. And ultimately we assembled more than seventy thousand names of suspects mostly european also some japanese and we ran each of those names one by one against us immigration records and sometimes other records in an effort to see if we could determine whether any of those people came here assuming they hadn't changed their names

Interview With Jeremy Scott

"Good morning bob. This is nicole phelps. I'm the director of global vogue runway. And i'm here today with jeremy. Scott jeremy on or you. How are you jeremy's mosquito collection and video have been all over social media for the last twenty four hours or so and chances are you've probably seen it andrews christian madsen who is a colleague of mine at vogue runway. Put it this way. I thought this was a great quote. No one has quite aced this digital moment in fashion history. Like jeremy so we have lots of questions about how it all came together. Thank you very much for being here with us. My absolute love all right. Well you know i am. In addition to reviewing some shows all season long. I do a lot of editing. And and i thought anders made some really great observations in your piece and you said some very interesting things which i want to quote here. Which is you said. You use the term comfort sh- mumford and you elaborated to say what we need now. More than ever is fantasy and glamour. And i obviously don't disagree. But i am curious for you to talk to us. About how the way you design and what you design has changed if at all after a year in in lockdown amidst the pandemic. Well i think you know very well watching my work. That i'm a very devout devotee of high octane glamour. Always and so. That part really hasn't changed. I might have put the pedal to the metal a little bit more this season and last but i think what's changed a lot. It's kind of like what we're doing right now. Everything i'm seeing are through screens. I did my fittings through screens through something like this. You know thinking about how the work is seeing. It's all seeing through screen so i'm looking at it already. My work is very Theatrical and very photogenic. And i think of it in a way how would be finally consumed always but now it's almost entirely consumed at this moment via screens. So i've i've been watching it in a different way. So while doing the fittings with my team and milan and they are doing the actual pinning in the actual adjustments for me. And i'm directing it in in a manner like this. I'm watching it in a in a in a way that takes away that that moment of being next to it and there is something i think that does give it a little bit more of remove that makes it a little bit more in a way precise i know sounds kind of weird. Did say it that way. But i don't have the emotional moment of the model in front of me and everything happening live. I'm more dissecting it. 'cause i'm looking at through a screen and i am. I am removed in that respect. So i feel like part has changed and maybe even well i feel. That's a good segue to talk about the the collections last season to refresh people's memory. Jeremy did a fantastic video where he turned models and Front row goers in into marionettes and it was a huge ships are on vogue runway and an across the internet. And what you did this season was you. I would say paid homage to a very famous movie. Called the women from nineteen thirty nine george cougar film and s specific seen so specific fashion show scene. Can you tell us anything about your experience with that movie. Maybe when you saw it for the first time or why are you. Liked it enough to recreate it for this. Absolutely i verify brain to even remember when i could have seen it first. 'cause it's one of things that feels like it's been with me forever. I think any real fashion fan would put this on one of their top. Ten list of you know old hollywood films especially ones that have a fashion show in it. One is really the creme de la creme not only. Is it beautifully done. But also there are the costumes by adrian who is also it's such a icon for so many fashion designers and having done all the most beautiful all hollywood glamorous films and costumes at that time but beyond the costumes i think for me is is really the fact that the film is only women. There's only actresses. There's not one time. There's a a a male actor in the film even with a voice. So i love that because honestly as normal is that maybe should be today. It's still not normal. Hollywood for an all female cast to be able to carry a film and not film doesn't so beautifully now specifically for the scene that was inspired by is the fashion show scene in their out of salon. Which is such an you know. Typical historical fashion kind of scenario. And this was more like the the dressmaker salon. Instead of. maybe the paris couturier and they're coming to choose the their guard the road for the season. I wanted to kind of think about all the things that they would need to wear now again thinking about the time of the film. These ladies did not work. They were not having jobs their characters. Were you know really dependent upon men. So i wanted to start mind with them. As busy businesswomen in takes of the pin stripe suit these kind of business looks that would be putting them in charge. And not you know quibbling about the fact that they're working they're only working you're working for them and they're not working for you

Will Oysters Ever Make a Comeback in the Bay?

"The ocean that's reporter khloe veldman even with a couple of friends so tough khloe. Sorry tough katrina. What's a tough assignment. I eat always does all the time. But i had actually never tried this type. It's called an olympia oyster or ali for short. Oh i've never heard of that kind. Are they like well. They're much smaller than the oysters. Most of us in the bay area a familiar with they taste kind of coppery and pungent and this special because they are native to the san francisco bay. But the oysters you just heard me and my friend guzzling actually harvested from our bay scientists. Say it's still too polluted from agricultural runoff and other chemicals like mercury instead. These came from a farm in washington state. However for thousands of years the olympia grew locally in vast numbers three generations back would be a safe to say that our family last word gathering oysters from the bayshore east bay alone chef and food activist vincent medina says the only was a dietary staple for many local tribes including his own ancestors in raw they would also be cooked in earth ovens underneath the ground and with of sea lettuces and different types of seaweed acorn sue vicious meals matthew buca is an environmental historian and has written a book all about the bays voice to full past. He says olympia oysters. All along the west coast stretching from alaska all the way down into central mexico all these perfectly adapted to survive the cold waters of san francisco bay but they need rocky surfaces to grow on matthew says by the mid eighteen hundreds thousands of years of slow sea level rise and melting sierra. Glaciers made the bay muddier. And that's bad for all these. They were struggling. Basically then the gold rush hit and brought thousands of golden protein hungry settlers. It didn't take long for them to destroy the local population forcing oystermen to look further afield. All the estuaries of the west coast are essentially mind for there to satisfy this endless demand from san francisco. Matthew says soon even those far-flung habitats had been plundered. There were relatively few all east left on the entire west coast but there was still a demand for them. So entrepreneurs took to importing non native varieties from the east coast. You can capture baby. Easter's barrel them up. Put them on. Board schooners later on board unrefrigerated train cars ship them across the entire united states and then they would be placed into san francisco. Bay on privately owned tied lands and harvested as crop demand for always was so high pirates frequently raided the beds bay area native. Jack london tells us about it in his autobiographical novel. John barley corn the winds of adventure blew the oyster pirates. Loops up and down san francisco bay. Before london became famous writer. he was among other things. An infamous oyster pirate every raid on. An- bed was a felony. The ofa glamorized his experience stealing oysters from the bay by night and selling them in the oakland markets the next morning in several literary works and behind it all behind all of me with you. A bubble whispered romance adventure but even the imported oysters didn't survive in the san francisco. Bay for long the already muddy waters were made worse by mining in the sierra during the gold rushes. This turned up more modern sanders sweat downriver. So the san francisco bay historian matthew book says grow moved their atlantic choices to the south bay when mantras less of a problem but heavy industry and human sewage polluted. The bay waters a rash of deaths connected to eating contaminated puts an end to the san francisco bay oyster industry so by the early twentieth century. There are plenty of oyster bay but the people eating them are no longer so sure if this is the right. Food in the nineteen thirties bombing resumed in the clean waters of drake's in somalia's base north of san francisco but the focus especially after world. War two was on pacific oyster varieties from japan. Interesting cultivating the native olympia oyster as a food source dwindled. It still hasn't really come back. So will we ever be able to eat the native only ounce of the bay again even though no always does a grown in san francisco bay food there are efforts to bring them back to help restore the based delicate ecosystem and ecologists have focused on the native. Only that once thrived here sickle spot. Oh you been question. Scott joseph fletcher at the bay natives. Plant nursery in the bayview to interview linda hunter. She's the founder and director of the wild oyster project. Oysters have so many wonderful benefits. Linda tells us does have superpowers. So one grown oyster can filter fifty gallons of water a day. Oysters helped maintain the balance of marine ecosystem but reducing algae and sediment that can contribute to low oxygen levels causing other marine life to die. There's also the fact that oysters provide have attacked for other critters we as cluster on discarded shells rocks peers and heart submerged surfaces. They fuse together. As they grow forming these rock like reefs that make ideal homes for other marine animals. Implants into says the protect coastal lands by reducing the impacts of storm wife's. It's been proven that voice to rapes attenuate. The effects of rising tides caused by the wild oyster projects is trying to rebuild these reefs. That works starts with collecting discarded oyster shells from local restaurants and piling them. Up part sites like bay natives shows in. Linda says eventually these shells will be built into reefs unplaced in the bay. The idea is for these manmade reefs to attract native voices and as a result other wildlife like ill gross salmon crabs egrets says. They've already installed reefs near alameda. Point pinot the first to reflect the at point panel in richmond. I got a phone call from a fisherman who is complaining that his fishing line had been snagged on one of our reef balls. And i said Have you noticed more fish. And he said yes. I have thank you very much. But before they can be turned into reefs. The oyster shells needs to be clete. And that's where the chickens come in. They natives is home to about two dozen chickens. This is the chicken launch. There's not chickens. you have to clean the shell. Otherwise they get stinky and they attract kinds of critters. Should we feed the ins- off the shelves at cleaned laid out in the sun and several years later gobi ready to use annoy staff. This curing process helps kill any harmful bacteria and houghton's the shells. We have plenty of show. We have over ten thousand times here. Linda tells joseph. The projects has been relying more heavily on individual choice to eaters recently since covid nineteen shelter in place. orders have shut down many local restaurants. We are encouraging people to save their own trucks. Bring by one insights. Now you know what to do just dump them in the lounge

"mid nineteen thirties" Discussed on The Money Guy Show

"It's price fixed you might be able to find a work around that benefits you. You have to keep in mind that money dollar bill. Dollar bills are fungible. I know you're gonna love it. I got to use that vocabulary word. So even though you can't get the iphone or the apple product for twenty dollars less if you get a gift card for twenty dollars. It's the same sort of thing we do. this with. auto transactions all the time we'll negotiation. We'll get to the very end of the process. And then you have young kids so one thing that really matters to me no matter what automobile that i buy is i want all weather floor mats because my kids surprise surprise. Don't take care of the car. Quite as well as i would like for them to take your so there are melted crayons and chicken biscuits and all those things. Well those all were the floor. Mats are fantastic. Is all i gotta do is pull them out. Dump them in spray him off in every automobile perks of had i always try to negotiate that at the very end i say. Hey i've got this thing. okay. I get it. We can't come any lower. How would you feel about throwing in the floor mats and most of the time the ants. Okay yeah we can do that. That's the equivalent to them of giving the car for one hundred dollars two hundred dollars less if you can understand that as you go into these negotiations again knowing the numbers will allow you to figure out where you're wiggle room lies because what i like about knowing the numbers to that you can look at a situation go. What do they have an abundance of that. I would actually give value to is something that i value greatly and You just made the point of car dealerships. I figure they have all weather matt's stack up to the roof back there so they can just throw them in. It doesn't mean much them but to you. It means same thing we buy a house. You're worried about what you as a buyer of a house is worried about is. I'm going to buy this thing. The air conditioner break in the first two months or i don't want to pay all these closing costs you might be able to say. Hey look i'm not going to change the price. But how about throwing in a home warranty or something. That's really you know. Somewhat affordable is a percentage of the total cost of this transaction. It's just not much. There's usually ways that you can take something you value that. They have plentiful same thing with the cars maintenance. Now how did something thrown in there that they do not put much value because they have it in abundance but yet it's definitely something that has economic value to you. Love it number three now this one. We're going to tell you this is my weakest spot. There's a reason. I'm in broadcasting. Because i'm horrible at this you gave me a compliment in the editorial meeting you said. Hey you're actually trying to improve things you've gotten better and i've noticed when you need to turn this on. So here's number three. Listen more than you talk. I think for human beings innately. This is a hard one. This is a very difficult thing because we like our opinions. We like our points of view. We like the things that we have to say and so often times if we're not talking while the other person's talking we're merely thinking about the next thing we're gonna say we're merely thinking about okay. What's my robot again in every negotiation. The more you can remove self the better. You're going to set yourself up to be able to arrive some common ground. That's gonna work for everyone and the best way to do that is to actually listen to the other party once again. I'm to hold up. Dale carnegie's book. This book by the way has been around if you know. I think in the content meeting vitamin fte daniel. You didn't know it was from the mid nineteen thirties did you. You knew it was old. You just didn't know mid one thousand nine hundred that all this stuff is pretty thomas but i do think it's one thing you know there's a reason you have two years one mouth. Is you wanna make sure that you're focusing on to be interesting to be interested in what they're talking about and this ties into and i know we'll come back and talk about sour negotiate or other things but it does make me think of the chris voss book never split the difference and we have a fun little game we do we. We try to convince nate. Who's single here that he ought to go on. I don't even think they do speed dating anymore. Is that considered antiquated. All of our young folks are just not. Hey yes but you speed dating right after you said. You should go steady after something like that. So we're old school around here. But chris voss talks about this to skill sets you can do. It's called mirror mirror man. How do i had a hard time saying nothing but all you do. The mirroring is is is simple as when somebody says something you just repeat the last few things. They said back as a question. Repeat the last few things they said. Yea by the way if you didn't know what is doing and we do this all time. Poor he our producer for the show. We have gotten her on this. Quite a few times because boeing entertain ourselves because if you do the right inflection in your voice and ask a question you'll see people go deeper into the subject matter and you come off quite interesting and coming off as you're quite interested in what they're having to say it's a very powerful skill set and what it does is it allows the other person to talk so someone you're going through a car transaction the and the individual's hey my bottom line price is thirty thousand dollars and you just say oh. Yeah well this is just putting new tires on. not just. They'll start talking to you about why that is their thing is going to allow you together. More and more information to again help you better know the numbers and the way to keep them look. I'm gonna go ahead until you guys when you do this. You're gonna feel a little awkward about it but it works actually beautifully to do this mirroring. But you can't do it. I don't want to go more than two or three times. Deeper the question because then people go is he just playing. That game was a kid that you just repeat everything that the kid said across from you know. So there's actually another skill set it's called a labeling so when somebody's talking to you after you ask a few questions you could say it sounds like you're trying to it's just like you. You mentioned auto negotiating. Somebody tells you. Hey this is the price. I'm charging because i'm giving you this this this. It sounds like you're really trying to make this deal happen or something like that you just and then when they go a little deeper into the discussion you once again. Jump right back into mirroring and ask a question. I think the reason. I picked on nate about this. This would be great for speed dating. Is it out of love to know if you go do this. In a dating situation you would probably be seen as the most interesting person in the room and yet the people would know absolutely nothing about you. Yep because everybody likes to hear themselves talk if you wanna make somebody just say their name. I mean i try to tell it to my kids. I make if you can become good with names and then when you see somebody socially just say their name and i can listen to different. People will fill engage. I mean we've heard. What are you picked on politicians earlier. But you know how you hear about politicians have superpowers is that there are some presidents and others that when they shake people's hands you hear that you're the only person that's a superpower that you can use and look a lot of you probably listening. Are these guys this deliberate this manipulative now. I i think this is something. Because i like this book. Dale carnegie's how to win friends and influence people. This has made me about her husband. And maybe a better friend because it might sound like some of these skill sets are a little like man. I don't. I don't know if i want to learn to manipulate it's not manipulates. It makes you better at relationship because this is a human condition that we all wanna felt heard. We won't our voiced to feel like it's connecting with somebody so. I don't want you to feel like you're actually manipulate. I want you to think about your learning how to essentially become better at the system that we're all born in equipped with so you can do it. The most efficient way possible now. Fortunately or unfortunately we've had a chance to be part of a lot of negotiations and watch a lot of negotiation happen. And i would say that. This is the one area where it usually goes wrong. The most and goes wrong. The worst in terms of achieving a certain outcome. I think where we see it. Manifest is when it comes to talking about salary when it comes to having a negotiation with a superior. I even see some folks in the chats. Hey i'm coming up for promotion. I'd love to know like how to approach that. I think that is a fantastic area where you can listen more than you talk and do the best that you can as an employee to understand the other side of the equation. And here's here's my advice on somebody negotiating a salary and we talked about this bow and our content meeting. Is that as an employee you really paid for the value. You're adding to the organization you work for not for necessarily the value you are and i think people sometimes come into negotiations or discussions. I mean i think back to my first boss. I loved my first boss bob kayser. Cpa firm. But i bet. I drove his bud crazy because whenever say well no every time.

Hellen B Shares Her Story Of Overcoming Alcoholism

"This career girl preferred solitary drinking the blackout. Kind often hoping she'd stay that way for keeps but providence had other ideas. I wasn't always alcoholic. In fact it has only been within the last fifteen years that i changed from a fairly normal control drinker into an alcoholic. I don't mean that. I went to bed one night. A normal drinker and awoke the next morning as an alcoholic. It wasn't that simple. I started drinking socially and at parties. And proms when i was about twenty years old. I didn't like it particularly at first. But i did like the effect i got from it. It made me feel quite grown up and mature. And i think another added attraction was the fact that so far is my family was concerned it was forbidden and it had a special attraction for that reason after a while i really did enjoy drinking and what it did to me and i became dependent on it for every occasion eventually. The day came when i was dependent upon it even when there wasn't any occasion when i didn't have anything else to do a dull evening at home i'd sneak a few drinks upstairs in my room and that began to be a habit in nineteen thirty nine. I went on my first weeks. Bender of solitary drinking locked up in a hotel room because my family opposed my coming marriage. I figured that. Perhaps if i went ahead with that marriage which i was sure was right for me. That would be the answer to my drinking problem. I thought i would be quite happy. And never would i drink too much again. So i that i think my first feeling of fear came with my first week. Solitary drinking locked up in that hotel room. The hotel management knowing that something was wrong sent for doctor. The doctor apparently realizing that one thing that i certainly needed was sleep. Left a bottle of sleeping pills there and in my drunken state i took them all instead of the one or two he had prescribed. If it hadn't been for an alert hotel made. I might have died then from that time on. Fear was with me. Because i realized that not only would i not remember what happened to me while i was drinking but apparently i couldn't control what happened and there didn't seem to be anything to do about it. Having passed over the border line the next five years were filled with fear failure and frustration tragedies during those years that were caused by drinking such as the breaking up of my marriage. The death of my child other things had little restraining affect in fact. Sometimes they served as good excuses to drink more to forget it was in washington. Dc that this transition took place and that the really bad part of alcoholism began happening. The last christmas i spent in washington fourteen years ago comes to mind only a few days before christmas. I went to the dentist for periodic checkup. X-rays show that a couple of teeth had to come out. I hadn't been drinking much about that time for. I had begun to realize that there was something abnormal about my drinking. Although as yet i didn't realize that it was so out of control on the day set for the extractions on my way to the dentists felt a little nervous so i had a couple of drinks and after the teeth were out i was very nervous so i had a few more

And efficient, he developed that reputation as a lawyer being willing to do anything keep his office open his light burning much of the night, and he also develops a reputation or I should say refines a reputation. We already talked about that reputation of being willing to do anything and that included taking on his senior law partner the guy who gave him his big. Break Joe wanted to run for office and so that this guy so I should say I the first office Joe ever ran for was as district attorney and he may have been one of the least qualified people to ever run for that office, a young lawyer no real experience but nothing was going to hold him back and he runs for district attorney in an unusual way. Joe McCarthy. We think of in what we're given in the history books as one of the icons of the American right back. Then he runs for office as a Democrat as an avid flaming new dealer as a big supporter of Franklin. Roosevelt and there was only one problem in the part of Wisconsin where he was doing that Democrats didn't get elected and certainly flaming new. Dealers didn't get elected and McCarthy. Very quickly understood again, this motto that I will keep coming back to whatever it takes and what a took was sometime maybe in the middle of the night when nobody was looking you go and you change your party registration from Democrat to Republican, and then you pick an office as your first office when you've made that change a non partisan. That is a circuit court judge and the fact that your. Sponsor and legal partner wants to have that same office and deserves it. Who Cares you let them know at the last minute just as you're announcing and then you barrel over him and this guy named Mike ever line his law partner depending on the story over the years where McCarthy started getting more powerful ever line started getting less candid about admitting how outraged he? Was that Joe McCarthy had dissed him but you don't have to listen to what he said. You Watch what he did and suddenly Joe McCarthy wasn't his body and his law partner and McCarthy wins that office. He wins at partly by making an issue of the age of the incumbent any wins it by embellishing the age of the incumbent was old enough to become an. issue. But he picks an older age the income over time the incumbent made sounds like a whole lot of money. If you add up ten years and you put it together and you say, was he worth not five thousand dollars a year but was it worth fifty thousand dollars and he made it seem like this pillar of the legal community and of the general community. Was Somehow out scamming the public and it worked and he not only one office, but he converted that incumbent into what the incumbent's son called Joe McCarthy's first victim overnight the incumbent went from being this long serving judge to being scammer of the public and it wasn't true and it was a sign of Macau willingness to win office to do or say just about anything. To return for a second to McCarthy's moral compass. The use of. Alternative facts there for the birth of filtered facts. Frankly, these were outright lies not facts and he. It's not something that had typically been done. But he took to that and in addition to doing what he did to his law partner. let's just discuss the idea of no allegiance to one's ideology. Should Joe McCarthy? Having ideology. So I WANNA be consistent as biographer and when I wrote a biography Bobby Kennedy, I talked about it being growth that he went from being a Joe. McCarthy. Cold Warrior at the beginning of his career to becoming an iconic liberal figure. And I would love to be able to say what Joe McCarthy was doing was growing in his move from being liberal to being conservative I think what he was doing was showing that on that moral compass that you were talking about I don't know if there is a dial point in that compass of immorality but if there was he was amoral I think. His moral compass was to get ahead to see his ambition rewarded together limelight and he would have probably if you were here as part of this conversation we're having now said that he wanted that so that he could do important things in that. It didn't matter whether he came from the right of the left. If you got enough power, he could change things. that doesn't wash and the truth is that his change was because that was what it took to get elected and you could have argued with Bobby Kennedy that in fact, his electability what have been stronger hetty stayed closer to a middle of the road instead of going out there on the political left where he felt more comfortable in later life Joe McCarthy went wherever the ground was most solid in his electoral drive and I want to just say one of the things so. We were talking about the word embellishment. The reason I didn't call that ally is because I want to save lives for the really big ones he told, but it was a lie in what McCarthy learned brilliantly, and I think it remains true to this day is you don't get punished anymore for telling a big lie. Then you do a little lie and so over time he learned to tell whoppers. But in the early days, it was more a stretching than an ignoring of the facts. He goes on to become a judge in in that setting he he gets this reputation for clearing the backlog. quickly, he gets a reputation for granting divorces quickly, which is pretty fascinating for somebody from his religious background I'll just say that that seems like a real departure there, and then he also goes on to enlist.

If you listen to podcasts to stream, political scandals for free on spotify, just open the APP and type political scandals in the search bar. Today will follow the twists and turns in the case of Alger Hiss, a federal official accused of being a Soviet spy in the late nineteen forties. A respected diplomat who worked closely with the United Nations evidence, emerged his connections to Russia were deeper than the state. Department had ever realized. We'll begin investigating Alger Hiss right after this. September second nineteen, thirty nine one day after Nazi Germany invaded Poland the Assistant Secretary of State Adolf burly junior had an unlikely visitor at his home, a former Soviet agent who was known to him only by the name Carl. A week earlier. The Soviet Union had signed a nonaggression pact with Germany. In light of that Carl had some information that might be of concern. The US government was full of Soviet spies. Eighteen of them as far as Carl new including the special assistant to the state. Department's adviser on far. Eastern affairs, Alger Hiss. To the State Department. This sounded absurd. These were some of their most respected colleagues. The charges couldn't possibly be true. Early said he'd look into it, but honestly the government had bigger things to worry about namely the Nazis. It would be years before anyone started taking Carl's stations seriously and in that time Alger. Hiss would become one of the most powerful diplomats in the United States. And the fallout of the scandal would change the course of history. Carl was actually a Time magazine journalist named whittaker chambers. He was in fact, an ex communist and a former spy for the Soviet Union. Communist Party was relatively popular during the nineteen thirties as the great depression devastated the economy. Plenty of well meaning left leaning Americans joined the party, including chambers, and by his account Alger Hiss. Hiss was a well off young lawyer in New York City, but while he was doing fine during the depression, the devastation around him was too much for him to ignore. His wife Priscilla joined the Socialist Party of America according to Alger. He didn't officially join her, but he shared her beliefs about helping the destitute and reforming corrupt businesses. That's why in nineteen, thirty three, the twenty eight year old Alger Hiss started working for the agricultural adjustment. Administration, which offered relief for farmworkers. At this point. There are two diverging timelines regarding what happened to his. He claims he was never involved with any communist groups or espionage. Chambers asserted otherwise. In fact, according to Chambers in the Mid Nineteen Thirties, he and his were part of a group that was aimed at infiltrating the American government, supposedly to help their goods Soviet comrades in their struggle against capitalism. Chambers worked as a communist organizer and a courier for stolen government documents. His allegedly did his part by taking a job at the State Department. He served under assistant. Secretary of State Francis Be Sayer for four years before transitioning to the role of personal aide to the state. Adviser on Far Eastern Affairs. That role gave him plenty of access to top secret documents on foreign policy. According to chambers, he and his became confidence during this period frequently, attending Communist Party meetings together. His was also brought into the espionage scheme chambers claimed he received his first classified government documents from his in nineteen, thirty seven. In turn chambers. Pass them up the ladder to Soviet intelligence. By Chambers is account. The two of them became close friends. Chambers occasionally stayed over at the his family's house and Hiss, the magnanimous communist, even gifted him an old car. All was well and good for a while. Until the great purge. Over, in the Soviet Union Joseph Stalin was killing pretty much anyone who got on his bad side and anyone who criticized him for it would have. THEIR NAME ADDED TO THE EXECUTION LISTS Soon whittaker chambers was sure his name was on that list. Chambers was summoned to Moscow in July nineteen thirty seven wisely, he didn't go. After stalling for a while, he eventually defected from the Communist Party and went into hiding in nineteen, thirty eight. According to chambers. Hiss cried when chambers told him he was leaving the party, but his refused to join him. Over the next few years, his career in the State Department kept barreling forward when the United. States joined World War Two in nineteen, forty, one. The State Department became an active part of the diplomatic effort. And throughout the entire course of the war, chambers's accusations against his went completely uninvestigated. Remember the Soviet Union became part of the allied powers six months prior to Pearl Harbor. The US wasn't necessarily concerned about spies from a nation that was on their side, not when Japanese forces were attacking islands in the Pacific and there were Nazis tragedy across Europe. Amidst the chaos of war his was finding great professional success. In May of nineteen, forty four, he joined the office of Special Political Affairs soon he was promoted to the offices director where he oversaw for postwar international organizations. The biggest task on their plate was the creation of the United Nations. The UN would be dedicated to peaceful diplomacy among world governments, replacing its ineffectual predecessor, the League of Nations thirty nine year old Alger Hiss had a large role in the conference that drew up plans for the UN serving as executive secretary. The Soviet Union surprised the other nations delegations at the conference by demanding that each of its sixteen republics. Get a vote in the General Assembly. That would be somewhat similar to allowing each of the fifty states their own vote. It would give the Soviets disproportionate power. No other country was keen on this idea. The conflict would drag on only reaching a resolution months later at the altar conference. In February of Nineteen, forty, five, the big three, the United States Great Britain, and the Soviet Union gathered at Yalta to discuss the postwar restructuring of Europe in Germany. Alger Hiss once again found himself at the center of this historic moment. As a member of the US delegation he was present to advise on East Asia. He also co authored a memorandum countering the Soviet Union's demand for sixteen votes in the UN General Assembly. The memo offered Stalin a compromise. Three votes rather than sixteen. The Soviet leader reluctantly.

Later investigations suggest she may have fallen victim to a jealous ex, a mafia contact or a legendary movie star. Jean Elizabeth Spangler disappeared on October seventh, nineteen, forty, nine, supposedly after leaving and overnight film shoot. An extensive search was largely unsuccessful, uncovering her handbag and a mysterious note inside. Thanks to a botched police investigation and these baffling clues. There are three prominent theories. The first is the gene was murdered, and her body disposed of she could have been killed by a former lover, or maybe even her ex husband, who is still bitter over a lost custody, battle or gene might have died during a secretive procedure. We can only speculate, but perhaps it was so shameful or taboo. The doctor may have hidden her body to get rid of the evidence. and. Finally gene may not have died at all. She could have fled. Los Angeles to escape dangerous enemies like a wrong mafioso. Gene's family moved to Los Angeles in the Mid Nineteen Thirties. Just as she was about to start high school gene soon fell in love with L. as modern sprawl and the promise of stardom. When she graduated from Franklin High School in one, thousand, nine, forty one. She set her sights on making it in Hollywood. Eighteen year old Jean was by all accounts, a charming and driven young woman. She worked several low paying jobs while she dreamed of seeing her name in lights, luckily for gene, her talent and her good looks turned heads. She soon began modeling for local department store, but gene wasn't content as a model. She wanted to be a star. She used Oliver Charm to make connections, but our big break wasn't which he'd expected. She was hired as a nightclub dancer at the famous earl. Carroll Theatre in Hollywood. Though the club was hardly a movie set gene appreciated the opportunity. Earl, Carroll was a prominent player on the sunset. Strip and his club drew in lots of well known and wealthy people. The GIG would certainly allow her to network gene relished the chance to rub shoulders with so many movers and shakers. Even if the club had sleazy reputation, and she used her charm to get to know the regulars intimately as a career started to flourish, so did her love life. She dated Dexter Benner. Who often frequented the club? He was a plastics manufacturer into recent USC graduate. Since he wasn't involved in show business. He didn't seem like an obvious match for the career focused gene, but the to hit it off. She was clearly attracted to his charismatic personality, but it's possible that she was also drawn to his wealth. The pair hastily married in one, thousand, nine, forty, two, only a few months after they'd met, and everything seemed normal at least for a little while. By, the end of the first year, they were at each other's throats. It was clear that Benner didn't relish the nightlife like his wife did. He hoped that once they married. Jean would settle down into a more traditional domestic life, but she wasn't ready to give up her dreams night after night Jean spangler out. At the club, she networked and even flirted with potential contacts. When? She came home sometimes well after midnight Benner responded with fury and violence after six months of abuse gene filed for divorce on the charge of cruelty. We don't know why, but shortly after submitting the paperwork gene dropped the case. The two stayed married, even though the relationship remained volatile, they even had a daughter Christine two years later. In. Those two years Jean hadn't gotten her big, Hollywood. Break trapped in a loveless marriage and caring for a new baby. She probably felt hopeless, but in nineteen forty four. She got some respite when Benner was drafted into the army. He traveled to the South Seas to fight in World War Two. It was common at the time for a mother, raising daughter alone to forgo her social life and take care of her child full-time, but gene refused to comply with society's expectations. In fact, she picked up even more shifts at the club and her social life became scandalous. With dinner out of Sidon out of mind, gene carried on multiple affairs some quietly and others openly. One of her boyfriends was in the armed forces. A man only known as Lieutenant Scotty. Scottie wasn't a great match for gene. To say the least he spent all of her money, an erect her car, and like Benner Scotty had a cruel streak. Gene regularly showed up to work with bruises and even told her friends that Scotty was abusive. But every time she tried to break up with him. Scotty got more violent for most of their relationship gene stayed with him because she thought she had no choice Jean, said that on one occasion. Scotty threatened to murder her. She figured he was bluffing, but it finally gave her the courage to leave him for good. After.

"Offices that were related to the field of home economics in one way or another then in one thousand nine hundred fifteen. The Office of Home Economics was formerly established. As part of the state's relations service. Those existing programs had been kind of spread through the. Usda were consolidated under the newly established office in that office started up new projects as well in the words of various appropriations bills. The office would allow the Department of Agriculture to quote investigate the relative utility and Economy of agricultural products for food clothing and other uses in the home with special suggestions of plans and methods for more effective utilization of such products for these purposes and to disseminate useful information on the subject. So it was a that. Did a lot of outreach and created educational programs and materials as well as doing a lot of research including analyzing data. That was being gathered by other departments. A lot of this research was about food. It's easy and it's nutrients including analyzing vitamin content of vitamins. At that point. Were still really new discovery. The Office Manager Studies that used a respiration calorie meter to assess the caloric content of different foods. All of this led to the nation's first and government nutrition guidelines. And this was that just about how much food took to sustain a person but also about how much money a family needed to be spending on food and how to prevent food waste experiments in a test. Kitchen looked at questions like the best ways to need bread how to conserve fuel in stoves and ovens how to get bigger yields in homemade jellies researchers studied various methods of home canning to figure out how to preserve food safely while maintaining its quality other projects involved studying different fats and frying methods to reduce the waste of oil. The Office of Home Economics also surveyed women about the problems they faced in their lives. And what the office might do to help them. For example a nineteen fifteen survey on the domestic needs of farm women revealed that women living on farms had concerns about pest management and efficient kitchen design and fashionable dresses. The women who were surveyed talked about really wanting clothes that they felt good about wearing and that we're easy enough to make that they could get it right the first time without wasting fabric on do-overs so the Department of Home Economics started drafting functional. Attractive dress patterns the had a lot of features like having three quarter length sleeves so that you were less likely to get your sleeve caught in the cooking fire like that kind of a mindset. They also made patterns for women's work clothes since the survey also revealed that farm women did not like having to work in their husbands altered. Cast-offs the Office of Home Economics also published material for educational programs for example in nineteen seventeen bulletin by Louise Stanley outlined. All the topics that should be covered in a complete first year home economics course. They were food selection both in homegrown and purchased food as well as food preparation and planning and serving meals shelter including home sanitation planning decoration furnishing and care clothing including selection making keeping in good repair and laundry room care and training of children including infant care addressing problems in young children and amusement for children hygiene and sanitation including knowledge of diseases and ways to preserve health caring for the sick at home household management including budgeting and training for the enjoyment of leisure time. I like the idea that it sort of reads as though you've got so much to do that. You might need a little help figuring out how to enjoy it when you have leisure time in. Nineteen twenty two. The Association of Land Grant Colleges started advocating for the Department of home economics to become its own. Full-fledged Bureau Congress authorized the creation of the Bureau of Home Economics on July first of nineteen. Twenty-three the chief of this newly created Bureau was Dr Louise Stanley author of that bulletin. That we just mentioned Stanley was the third woman to head a Federal Bureau and the I had one that was considered major. The two that were ahead of her. Where Grace Abbott? Who is chief of the Children's Bureau of the Department of Labor and Mary Anderson? Who WAS CHIEF OF THE DEPARTMENTS? Women's Spiro Stanley had earned a PhD in chemistry from Yale in nineteen eleven and she had served as professor and chair of Home Economics at the University of Missouri before joining the FDA in nineteen fourteen for most of the nineteen twenties. She made her home in Washington. Dc with Annabel Matthews a solicitor with the Department of the Treasury Mabel Walker Willa Brandt and her adopted daughter. Dorothy joined the household in the mid twenties and when she and her daughter moved to Georgetown in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine Stanley adopted. A baby girl named Nancy who had previously been a practice. Baby the news article about that is how I learned about practice babies and almost abandoned this entire episode but I not have time to be changing the Horse in the middle of that stream when the Bureau of Home Economics was first established. It had a budget of seventy two thousand dollars and a staff of about five people. Stanley salary was about five thousand dollars and that made her the highest paid woman in the federal government at that time by the nineteen thirties. The bureau had grown to a staff of seventy one and a budget of more than one hundred sixty eight thousand dollars. The main here. He is a focus for the bureau of home. Economics were food and nutrition textiles and clothing and the economics of the home. The respiration cholera meter was transferred to the Bureau of Animal Industry. But the Bureau of Home Economics still did a lot of research into vitamins Diet. The nutritional content of foods and food preparation and storage methods this included research into using diet to treat and prevent peligro which is caused by niacin deficiency and was widespread in the south. The Bureau of Home Economics built on a lot of the research that the office of Home Economics had previously been doing studies in food and nutrition including cooking times and temperatures storage temperatures and shelf-life along with continuing to refine home canning practices. The bureau also studied preparation methods for reindeer which had been introduced into Alaska as a food source for Alaskan natives over the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The bureau did similar work with rabbits during times when people were encouraged to raise rabbits as a food source of which included during World War. Two as home refrigeration became more common in the nineteen forties. The bureau used a micro biology lab to determine temperature ranges for safe refrigeration when it came to textiles. They're just had not been a lot of formal study into how to best care for different fabrics. The bureau studied had care for different fibers and how those fibers could most effectively be used. They also researched laundering. Things like water. Temperatures and the efficacy of different detergents including how much soil was really removed. And how the textiles themselves were affected. The bureau also researched ironing stain removal and hygiene bureau also continued to design industry meet patterns for clothing and household articles. They really focused on items. That were sturdy and practical with easy construction and easy laundering and children's clothing. They focused on durability ease of care designs that allow children to learn to dress themselves when ready to wear garments became more widely popular and widely available. The bureau shifted. Its focus away from home sewing and onto how to select and care for store bought garments as well as on advocating for standardized sizes and ready to wear clothing. The department's focus on the economics of the home came from a lot of directions. One aspect was how people were using their incomes. A lot of this research focused on food and clothing since those are the two major expenses in most households. The bureau studied what people actually bought with the goal of matching production in the US to what consumers were going to consume. The bureau also studied mothers'. Pensions which were payments to mothers of newborns to encourage them to stay home which had been implemented in most states by the Mid Nineteen Thirties. The bureau wanted to determine whether the payments really were enough to allow a new mother to stay at home. The bureau also focused on the more intangible idea of homemakers workloads including asking women's keep really detailed records of their days. Hildegard kneeland was the head of the economics of the home team and in her words from a publication called is the modern housewife. A Lady of leisure quote five. Sixth of these homemakers spent over forty two hours a week in their home making more than half spent over forty eight hours and one third spent over fifty six hours. The average for all is slightly over fifty one hours a week. If this be part time work what one may ask would be full-time? This economic study wasn't just about documenting. How much work took to manage a home? The bureau also research.

"John Connolly and I'm joined today by Fraser Nelson and Katie balls. Now if you're just tuning in this morning owning or you're just woken up and not seeing the results just to give you a little bit of flavor. Tories are heading for a majority of around eighty. After taking swathes of seats in the North and Midlands now south of France this might be an understatement but is a pretty good results. The Tories Marion. They will be incredibly happy in the last few days. Some Tories were wondering even if he gets a majority at all. I know some people who thought it was fifty fifty and then when the police came out which had the initially give give them a majority of sixty seven and shrink that to the Mid Twenty S. The Tories were then saying look. We be happy if it was majority of ten majority of fifteen anything that's working majority already to get the briggs that deal through would be enough. Now they've ended up with the biggest majority they had since the nineteen ninety seven general election. We've laid her own on the smallest number of MP's since the Mid Nineteen Thirties. So this is to present mildly top end of Tory expectations and the other interesting thing is the share of the vote. Now all the votes have been counted yet but looks as if it's going to be forty five percent if it is forty five percent this'll be the highest share. The votes gathered by any political party since one thousand nine hundred seventy so that means that borders Johnson will go to Harvard shared. Sure then. Tony Blair. It's really quite something absolutely encasing talking a lot in the past weeks about the so-called red wall of northern and midland season. How they'll pharaoh but I think especially after tonight that was less awal more of a curse and wasn't it the the Tories of walk through six say they've demolished? The Red will open the Makita these waves seats theresa targeting in their strategy very successfully done that and they're Eddie signs. I think at a in the day getting them pressure when he was speaking to bay flows on the A to resign the labor side that and tourism making big gains in the North East and in the Midlands. And they're bitten edgy. Getting about London and the side. It did seem as I. That was the place where it's working out for them. We had some these signs of that. I think if you think of some of the seats they have one phrase. It mentioned some of them that but you have Dennis skinner. The People's I suppose there there is no more. You have a new seats just like you. Gas Now say Skyline Flint seat so ultimately seats where you had at Les Believers in Parliament where trying to push for some form of Brexit have ultimately been punished by voters for being part of a party. That did not seem to be Delivering Brexit and Thomas Labour and the Tories have managed to take the opportunity and make huge changes. And if you look also some of these seats are now marginal seats rates of that. Coop is seen is now. Marginal seat is the safest Labor seat with seventy percent leave. And she's now going majority in the early thousands. I think khanates just onto teeth ads and things you looking. Also I mean. He had a North West. Dr Laura Pitcock has lost her seat to the Tories. That's an area of mining towns and lower-paid caucus coming in at three and taken by Richard Holden. The former special adviser and ahead of this people saying I was looking at difficult for lower pitcock. She's it had to do less television. and focus on knocking on doors and has see but you still got the impression he spoke to the Conservatives that they thought they could demolish you know we'll take down that majority not a Fab. Make an ultra marginal for the next election. And I think that's how they saw a few scenes like that but actually destroy has been more successful in many let on. They believed it would be and seats. I have just gone this time round so I think you're seeing a different political landscape and the people had to sleep. I mean I. This is a complete vindication Tori strategy over the past sort of weeks a month business yes. That's the surprising thing about this election quite often vigour right for reasons. That don't quite expected understand. David Cameron Cameron at this stage of two thousand. Fifteen general election hadn't even written a victory speech because he was convinced he was going to lose SA- quite often they wind reasons that we didn't quite understand. I and this time around. The election played out exactly as Tories thought. It would. The has softened in the south. We've seen dominic grabs constituency in Surrey. He's now back with the three thousand majority used to be twenty three thousand. We've seen them places like Guilford. We've seen maturities lose Putney so the Tories have lost out and MS remain voting places but as they suspected and as they calculated they've more than made up for this by gains of North. I think they now have to in five life seats in northern England. And this was they did this. By keeping to the verdict clean brexit message gets brexit done as James says says in his cover story which is about to get some puts on the website. This was at times these Briggs get brexit done where they used to say conservative they drop the word conservative and just see where they get breaks done party. Now this worked of course. This is the great caveat now people who are saying look if he's northerners just linked you their votes that not really early torchy's they just wanted brexit so this is just a brexit election was doesn't show you the success of Toryism now that may be but the conservatives are five long years use to actually get through to northern voters and give them more positive reasons to vote conservative so the strategy works. I suppose you could say that. Boris Johnson's message. Mrs Disciplined worked as well. I thought break get Briggs. Domos rather boring message. Bits of course these campaigns not here for the entertainment of Journalists Katie. So as my dad woke up this morning I got a attacks simply saying Li exclamation mark exclamation mark. That's Leah's in Wigan only for those who can't quite hit the difference there do you think the tours of this morning and kind of thinking the same thing as how are we going to keep hold of seeds like Lee and Bolsover Ambassad lower in the northern Midland's that they've never held before. Yeah I mean I think it means that we're seeing different version too conservative party. Ready got a flavor of a helix conservative manifesto if you got high abortion Sean sizing pitching himself since you enter ten Downing Street and it is a party. which is highest spend home of blue collar conservatism? And I think oh totally. How does this affect? Boris Johnson is going for his brexit deal. I mean I think it was quite interesting as if you clearly. There's a big leave. Vote Behind Boris. Johnson is and he's picked up seats in areas free to leave but lots of labor votes and I think that is true that if you look at the various reasons people voted for brexit often. You would find those at Torrey think tanks who want brexit because they see it as Singapore on the Thames is he s having this low-tax economy. And you now need to combine that with. I think legally neighborly voters he actually tend to be more protectionist. Now clearly isn't the same food all isn't one size fits all but I think that when it comes to approaching brexit now the party is going to have to probably taken a slightly more protectionist element than perhaps some such as maybe Jacob Frey smog who owned Patterson with like and and I think that's GonNa be one of the interesting current hip because Boris Johnson is on course for majority that we believe is going to begin with the number eight and have another number that after nominee Nov majority of eight. He has space to breathe. He ultimately is no longer beholden to enter the party. The European Research Pretoria Brexit is I mean Mark Francois can't have hissy fit and basically force. Boris Johnson's try and change tack and same to be sad even though Mr happy kicked out of the party anyway but in terms of any. MP's are worried about no deal. And that means I think it is really Boris Johnson's to choose what to do with Brexit. Going forward and I think because he is someone who is seen as a breakfast here. He's established that say including he can make decisions. I think others couldn't and still carry offers an acceptable form of brexit. So he has all the space to make decisions on. I think look at the seats. They've picked up tonight. I think that it is not necessarily going to be the brexit which some in the party dream to I suppose the most purists interests of this is I think the extraordinary thing about this result with a majority of eighty then Boras Johnson cango down his own path. Whatever he wants David? David Cameron was sort of buffeted by the DEM's to resume was buffeted by any functioning party really could deprive majority. But I have got a prediction here here. I think that even without the E. R. G. Holding any kind of whip hand over the government. He will still play hardball with Brussels. He will say to them that we you want a good deal. And we're going to do briggs without one. I think strategy be far more likely to work. Because this time he's got the numbers for a new do brexit. He's covered numbers for any kind of Brexit. He wants to raise a make such a bad deal because looking at her pathetic majority first time around in a non existent majority second time around the EU thought will why should should we am really give you any concession. Because you didn't have youth authority to come back with any plan of your own. Boris Johnson go huge amounts of authority. Now so I think I will make the brexit negotiation easier for him. My second prediction is we're seeing a very different form of Conservative Party is Katie says. But we're not going to get any significant -nificant tax cuts and these five years of conservative government. You might get them at the margins but this is going to be about high borrowing about high spending Ba- sort of policies is that people like Sasha Javid would have dismissed as Miller band desk a few years ago now. He's the one implementing. When I met him last week in Birmingham? He was telling telling me about the tens of billions is going to grow in order to invest. Now this is blue collar conservatism. It's fundamentally different to you thatcherite free-market conservatism. I think a lot of people haven't quite noticed change. They're expecting thatcherism to be unleashed on the country. As of whenever Boris gets into work. Today I think those people are going to get a pleasant surprise and those people who do quite like their taxes low in the government smaller. Good to get an unpleasant surprise it just on that I mean this instead the Conservative Party in many respects we just had result. Just come in now which is up the consensus of how Cheltenham now that was seen as a gonNA earlier on in this election campaign the Liberal Democrats campaigning really hard there and it was seen as when those seats that by pivoting to leave areas and labour voters. You a turnoff off ages in that area so I think the fact that you know they have. They have managed to keep some of these seats and also in London's Kensington which a tourist have held onto Wimbledon. It's an partly because ultimately you haven't had the fact remains that has been split here but the tourists do want to keep these teas that is going to factor into it. We were lived. Were strong. That really helped get smaller. Vote Chavez what we saw with chuck. He's the patron saint of conservatism. For that that that part of London and I I think the funny thing is valid. Dem's of in pretty much not quite wiped out with a gun newer in this election. The leader has lost her seat. And 'em this time. Today's Tories thought. This is charitable but limbs being week must mean labor too strong. No that was not worked out. Labor was weak Lib. Dem's a week inventories ended up being strong. A decent. This is the end than of tactical voting sort of remain. All People's vote surged thing Katie. Now that Lib dem's helping kind of punished in this way. I mean I think you could say of of the results.

"After World War One Hungary's borders were redrawn and the nation lost more than half of its land mass and population as a show of mourning the nation lowered its flags to half-mast for a full eighteen years and a country in a time of crisis will typically seek out a scapegoat. Even before Hitler was elected Chancellor of Germany Hungary was the first European nation to pass a major nationwide anti Semitic legislative slate in one thousand nine hundred twenty. These laws meant that Hungary's Jewish population had to suffer the effects of discrimination nation before the Holocaust formerly began and the population as a whole continued to experience economic downturn among other mental stressors that stem from day to day life in an unfair and unequal society. These factors surely contributed to the sharp uptick in suicides besides that struck Hungary in the early and Mid Nineteen Thirties. Luckily today there are numerous resources to help people who suffer from suicidal thoughts. It's if you struggle with these kinds of feelings there is hope the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is always available twenty four seven and at one eight hundred two seven three eight two five five while we can't say with any certainty of gloomy Sunday really caused suicidal feelings in its listeners rumors suggest that the song was legally banned in the United States and in the UK in this case at least we can inconclusively state that these stories are just that story's at no point was gloomy Sunday ever formerly censored in the United States although some radio stations and other private enterprises chose not to broadcast the tune but since no overall legal band existed did if a listener wanted to hear gloomy Sunday all she had to do was turn the dial to the next station so people continued to hear the song as for the the UK they did censor the song from playing on public airwaves including the state-controlled BBC radio they never made any formal announcement announcement regarding the restriction but the song was not broadcast on the station from nineteen forty one until two thousand and two perhaps this has demonstrated an abundance of caution on the part of the BBC or maybe they genuinely saved some lives by censoring the Hungarian suicide song but but while radio stations and bars could try to ban this song they'd never be able to stop the tide of deadly music that marked the second half of the twentieth century up next we'll explore more of gloomy Sunday's impact and discuss whether a song can really lead a person to die die or kill now back to the story earlier we discussed the long term cultural impact of the nineteen thirty three song song gloomy Sunday even after the piece was banned in Hungary the UK and numerous American radio stations and nightclubs due to its association with suicides artists continued to cover it gloomy. Sunday isn't the only song that has inspired debate about its violent influence over listeners in fact throughout history. Many murders and other gruesome crimes have been blamed on music in the nineteen sixties cult leader Charles Manson believed that the Beatles helter skelter was prophesying a future race war inspired by the lyrics he ordered his followers to perform a series of gruesome murders in order to bring about the coming conflict in one thousand nine hundred eighty four the parents of John. mccollum cullum sued singer Ozzy Osborne because they believed his songs suicide solution motivated their son to kill himself in nineteen ninety-four for heavy metal band megadeath released a to Lomond. MTV promptly banned the song's music video on the grounds that it promoted suicidal. Title III -Ation the controversy around the song only heightened in two thousand six when a mass shooter at Dawson College in Montreal quoted wooded it in his suicide note in two thousand eight a high school student in Krugersdorp South Africa named Mornay harms fatally attacked fellow students Udon Jock pretorious harm Sawara face mask resembling that of slipknot Drummer Joey Jackson during the subsequent police investigation Shen numerous friends and acquaintances of harms a claim that slipknot satanic music lead harm to become possessed by a demon perhaps APPs. These stories are nothing more than excuses. It is human nature after all to look for rhyme or reason to explain life's otherwise random tragedies but the fact that these same explanations pop up with song after song suggests something about this story resonates with people as as with many urban legends the explosion of Internet culture beginning in the nineteen nineties only added to the discourse around gloomy Sunday and the debate over whether it could actually drive a person to commit suicide corporations even found a way to capitalize on the song's tragic reputation. The opportunity -tunities to make money was worth the risks to listeners and in some cases. It's salacious history made for a built in marketing engine in in Nineteen Ninety nine the Hungarian movie gloomy Sunday adapted Nick Bark House novel of the same name it depicted a fictionalized is diversion of cherishes life and the tragic loss of his love in the film that lever was a Jewish woman named Alona who navigated a complicated love triangle before a Nazi. SS officers attentions ultimately drove her to suicide while Warner Brothers granted did a limited commercial run in America beginning in two thousand three. The film failed to generate much public interest in two thousand listen six production company. Phil Max put their own dystopia and spin on the urban legend with their English language feature film the Kovak Box. The A thriller tells the story of a man who uncovers an evil technology that can force people to kill themselves as a response to a particular cue. The suicide aside signal in the movie is the sound of the song gloomy Sunday on May Thirteenth Two Thousand Sixteen Parana Music released an an album titled Hungarian Jar attribute to gloomy Sunday. The set list was just twelve different covers of the eponymous song nearly forty straight minutes of gloomy Sunday. The back cover featured an advisory that read warning. This music may be hazardous to your your health listener. Precaution is advised oppo quote from Pink Martini's Thomas Lauderdale added. I don't want to go near that song. It's totally holy haunted and cursed. I want to live the admonishments functioned as a bit of reverse psychology by playing up the danger associated with the album. The publishers dared customers to buy the record and listen to it. Meanwhile the song gloomy Sunday holds a legendary status in Western pop culture almost certainly due to its reputation as the Hungarian suicide song when the BBC radio issued an undated online mind poll on the saddest song of all time gloomy Sunday landed at the number four slot whether or not the urban legends are true gloomy me Sunday has cemented its reputation and scientific studies support the notion that dark music can carry dark consequences sociologist religious Dino Weinstein who focuses on pop culture explained in her study titled Heavy Metal a Cultural Sociology people who who struggle with depression and issues related to self harm often find acceptance and support in like minded communities an exploration of suicidally sidel depressed teens found that these young people used clothing hairstyles and music styles to signify their place within the community so so it's possible that gloomy Sunday has been linked to a rash of suicides because the legend around it attract suicidal people to the song on the other hand hand that same study noticed that there have been few scientific inquiries into the negative effects music can have on a person's mental health so we can't say with any certainty whether a sad song really has the power to make the listener feels sad or act on that sadness what we can say is that music plays an integral role in the human experience reporter. Adam Kraus attempted to quantify how music impacts ordinary Mary American high school students and he found that the average teen listens to anywhere between one and five hours of music every day in in two thousand seventeen. The music industry generated seventeen point three billion dollars in revenue from concert tickets streaming revenue and other sources. She's in researcher. Jeremy Montagu claimed in a paper in frontiers in sociology that are ancient hominids ancestors evolved the ability ability to sing roughly one million years ago that same paper found that ancient humans built musical instruments predating Egypt's pyramids commits suggesting that rhythm and melody have been a fundamental part of human culture for as long as said culture has existed. Is it really that outlandish landed then to say that music makes us human and shapes the way we live our lives at a certain point. The answer might not even matter whether whether or not gloomy Sunday can really lead to suicidal idealization legends around it are mysterious and intriguing as author John Herald Bruno von explained in his book the vanishing hitchhiker American urban legends and their meanings the lack of verification -cation in no way diminishes the appeal that urban legends have for us we enjoy them merely as stories and tend to at least half believe see them as possibly accurate reports reporter.

"And we're back. Thank you sponsor. Yes. Thank you. So while all of this was going on the world saw the beginnings of broadcast television in the mid nineteen thirties early programming tended to I be broadcasts of live sporting events then studios based on radio shows like actors reading from scripts in front of microphones or hosts interviewing celebrities or cooking demonstrations audiences would be small for about twenty years though. As of nineteen fifty only nine percent of American households had a TV set. Wow. The first ever food show on television may have been in the UK via BBC television in June of nineteen Forty-six. Starring one Philip Harbin. It was called simply cookery the point to the point. He had been doing cooking shows on the radio since nineteen forty two. But apparently was pitching to get on TV the whole time. Those CBC says that he was obsessed with this new medium and just like wanted to be a part of it. He did have a background in restaurant cooking. So it's like he wasn't just some or will. I mean, he kind of was but. But here's a guy on this. Exactly. The first ever broadcast recipe was for lobster boulevard. Ooh. Fancy right? Harbin would be a staple on television through the nineteen sixties towards the end of his life. The early years of television shows in America were dominated by PBS. And by shows that aim to teach viewers how to cook. The I was a segment that James beard appeared in Elsie presents James beard in. I love to eat from August of nineteen forty six to nineteen forty seven and you can see our James beard episode for more on that. It was Elsie presents in like Elsie the cow like what like the like the like, the mascot from Borden like Bordon's Elsie. Yeah. My goodness. Anyway, I did not put that together. Pretty great. It is worth mentioning again for this episode James beard was an actor as well. And once said food is very much theater. Oh, love that. This was also basically the first broadcast show that focused on cooking and eating as like a pleasurable pastime rather than from a more purely technical and. Practical standpoint, and he'd be one of only a handful of hosts to approach the topic that way for for a long time and other one although less well known these days than James beard being James beard, also beginning nineteen forty seven and lasted a lot longer than beards show because beer just never really worked on camera. Yeah. Here's pretty awkward back in the day. Diani Lucas who was one of cordon bleu Paris's first female graduates hosted this primetime cooking show for about a decade. And this it being prime time was unusual because most food shows aired during the day because it was in the evening hers was one of the first food shows that many Americans ever saw and her cooking was was ambitious and precise and made for being enjoyed also largely French. Julia child would later call her the mother of French cooking in America. Oh, yeah. Also in nineteen forty seven the world got what may have been its first commercial network television series. Like not on PBS, right? Yeah. A series on a privately owned TV network instead of a public one. And it was a cooking show heavily. Sponsored by a brand. It was called in the Kelvinator kitchen. Oh my goodness. And it's host was this former former opera singer and talk show host alma kitchen, and she would demonstrate Kelvinator appliances, and how they could help the average housewife save time in the kitchen. I oh, I know it's not true. But I wish he was like singing off of. Oh, I don't think she was no that would have been way better if every time machine this is the first stop killing later. A lot of American cooking shows through the nineteen. Fifties were along these lines like just really reinforcing the postwar American dream of convenience in conformity and postwar gender stereotypes like most hosts were women who were packaged as being homemakers. Even though they weren't they were working and most male hosts tended to be restaurant tours. Or chefs some contains like scripted sketches with other actors interacting with the host portraying a family and others would contain segments on lake housekeeping, and fashion and toward the end of the decade like in.

In other words, addressed the country in a broadcast fireside chat to talk about the Bank crisis Roosevelt, urged Americans to be patient and to trust the government as it worked to stabilize the banks that helped reverse a trend in which people had been participating in numerous runs on banks in they were in fear of losing their savings. They were withdrawing other money from the banks, and it helped make stabilization a reality and helps set the ground for recover. Every now in the mid nineteen thirties. FDR started the rural electrification administration, which was tasked with extending electric utilities to rural areas, particularly farms the national estimate for rural farms with electronic was just at ten percent in the mid nineteen thirties some areas like Texas were even lower with only two point three percent of farms having electricity. But as more communities were getting access to electricity more people began to invest in radios. And so the industry continued to do well, even through the depression and the depression wouldn't end until nineteen thirty nine that put RCA in a particularly strong position.

The problem was the regulatory regime didn't anticipate what we wanted to do. It was a sanctuary system set up for deregulation, passenger air, transportation, and you add to have a license from the government to do it. And the problem was the government hadn't issued any new licenses in the mid nineteen thirties. So it really was a convergence of number of interest where the Democrats and the Republicans came together and the airlines recognize that they would be better off in a free market environment where they can fly when and where they wanted to charge what they needed to charge and. Be able to discount for night flights or last flight or today, you know, charging you for bags are giving you a low cost ticket. And and so when the regulatory regime change I fair cargo and then for passion, your airlines, the next year all sorts of good things happen, including that access concept of having an air ground door to door delivery system was permitted where prior to that deregulation. We would have never been able to to do that. We could have never gotten the licensed to do it. So it was hugely important, man. It's.

"And he was very ambitious guy any relation to the chase Bank. Well, it was named after him. Although he had no connection with the Bank. Okay. But they he was became sort of a famous secretaries two pieces of trivia the same story. He was in Lincoln's cabinet secretary of the treasury, and he put his own picture on the one dollar Bill while he was secretary of the treasury. He was as I say very ambitious guys. Some people said he had ambitions to be run for president some day. He wanted to be in politics, anyhow when he put his own picture on the one dollar Bill. Members of congress were outraged that he would do that as you know, personal publicity to make himself better known, and you know, what better publicity, could you have to be on the front of a one dollar Bill. So congress almost immediately passed a law that from then on no living person could ever be pictured on US money in that law, by the way is still on the books all of our money. There is no living person pictured on any of our money. Interesting. Yeah. And that's the story of salmon. Chase. That's the reason we don't have any living people on US money today. Tidbit question you talk about how the United States got incredible intelligence about World War Two from a baseball player. How did that happen? And who wasn't this is kind of a involves story. There was a second string catcher by the name of Moberg in the late nineteen twenty s early nineteen thirties. He never hit very well. In fact, he was but he was very smart guy had gone to Princeton and new three or four languages and Casey Stengel made the funny remark about him once that he couldn't hit in any language. He was a second string catcher played very rarely. But as I say was a smart guy, do languages and new Japanese. So anyhow. At that time. Japan was just starting to get interested in baseball. Now baseball is very popular sport in Japan. But in the mid nineteen thirty s it was just they were just beginning to have baseball come there. And they ask you nited states if they would send over an all star team. So the Japanese could see the best baseball players in the world. An all star team from the United States, the US agreed to do that and put together an all star team. It had Babe Ruth Lou Gehrig and all the big stars of the day. But it also had the catcher as Moberg and the Japanese much about baseball. Then apparently they were not suspicious of why Bloomberg would be on that team. If they do anything about baseball. They would question why this second-string they would have arrested him or something. Yeah. Who is not an all star by a long shot was on the team. But he was on the team that he was there for a specific reason because the US government put him on that team to be a spy because he knew Japanese and how the team got to Japan. He wore a KOMO news spoke Japanese mingled with the people around Tokyo to begin with when the team got there and the daughter of the US ambassador. To Japan was in the hospital at that time, and he used that as an excuse to go to that hospital supposedly to see the ambassador's daughter. But the real reason he went to the hospital was he knew on the roof there. He went up the steps and not an elevator went up the steps to the roof of the hospital, and it had a perfect view of Kochi. Oh, why do and he had this camera under his Komodo? And he took these pictures of Tokyo, which became very valuable for the US intelligence service in World War Two Jimmy doolittle's bombing at Tokyo, which helped begin the end of the war. And he also went to hear a seaman aga- sacking and took pictures there which were used in the nuclear bombing of those cities, which did in the war. So he was very valuable spy for the US. Brought those pictures back in the Japanese apparently never were. Suspicious of why he was on. That's remarkable Charles.

Is like about eight hundred so he'll get eight hundred for the next three years a? Month, not the fourteen hundred but but by letting his own by doing this restricted application for spousal benefits that he was grandfathered for his. Benefit at aged, seventy was almost two thousand a month so let's forego taken the fourteen hundred now and he's in, good health let's take the eight hundred the. Spousal benefit that he's entitled to and, in three years he could switch from spousal back to his own that had grown by eight percent per. Year for the next three years and now it's it's nearly two thousand a month so by doing. That and he's in good Health living in other twenty years we found an extra hundred thousand dollars one hundred thousand dollars you know that was you know almost six hundred a month times twelve months times twenty years we found an extra. You know over one hundred thousand dollars of earned. Benefits they're entitled for, and just happened yesterday I mean the way I look.
