"Is the Experimental raptor it's a Looks like a mid wing With canard design and Pusher prop with an audi infants. Yup turbo diesel. Looks like a what. How many blades on that. About six bladed. Five five five blade prop. Yeah and there's a picture here as you can see of the airplane in the cornfield. Probably you know if you could make the to an airport or runway a blending in a cornfields. Probably not a bad place as tricky. So if it's this time of year in the midwest that corn could be quite tall and difficult to judge flare heights and things and not great for your gear well. The nebraska state patrol said that they were extremely thankful that this pilot was able to walk away from the small plane crash fillmore county. And there's another shot of the i mean. It looks like he did a reasonable job of not catching the year in flipping it over or something along those lines. More information here regarding that but Let me see here. Let me Now i'm sorry. I didn't put the video in here anyway. So the cool thing about this video going to this channel and seeing his latest video about the new version or evolution of the raptor. Is that He's really made an interesting design. Change in the biggest of course is going from the audi turbo diesel engine to electric in twin one on each of wings now and Well then the i guess trailing another on the Yeah they're toward the trailing edge of the of the wings. I don't know if that's technically a pusher depends that the and then there's there's an engine Back in the area where the turbo diesel is. And this design that Supplies the electrical power for the Electric engine's fans and Also he's he's Was able to reduce the wingspan of the The wing by Making like this like he connects the the box seal like a box. I don't know what they call ehlers but it makes much more rigid more lifting surfaces. And and you don't have to have this such a large wingspan with these big winglets on there and they still have winglets but it's it's just a much more impact in the fishing design. Yeah so anyway very very cool He he really goes into a lot of detail about why they made these decisions for the design changes and everything else and I think yet makes it a lot easier to like store in these small hangars and that kind of thing. Big you know quite a lot of Interesting improvement jeff Oh okay i need to share the screen ago anyway. So check that out. Thank you Michelle for Setting sending that in and teen and then finish on thirteen okay. Control room is telling us to fourteen and oh stephan I haven't done anything with audio. So hopefully we'll it's probably don't need to stop and usually usually has it up a pretty good volume level so l. I'm sorry this is not for the for the show. This assented liz. Oh yeah we'll see then have a special relations special relationship Okay In your last episode. Jeff asked for some travel tips for london. actually i. jj not pittsburgh. I g pittsburgh. Aj pittsburgh real gioja too. Many jj's will get it right of italy I recommend some travel passes like the london pass or london card at like for. I have never has london card. I'm assuming it's for public transportation. The one for the underground is just the oyster card. Why wonder if maybe this piece of audio feedback. He made he does all right. Let's take a listen a big hello to the team into everybody listening to this. Great show. This is steph from germany. Calling and i like to give you some feedback. Poor if he's old four eight nine. The watering walker and especially if back to judge a pittsburgh he tips to travel to london well. I'm not from london. Obviously but i- like tourist. Give you some tips if you want to go to london It's the london pass. That's a cod where you by advance a lot of attractions by the way there several of those travelling carts they alana impasse london cart and what else the other. One was the The london explorer possible there several cards. Which by you let let you buy a solar attraction at once you get sometimes a quick access. sometimes you get Also free boss and train ride so with that as well. I think if anybody who's going to visit Lan and should look at those pasta salonpas. It's quite a bit of money. You pay but you have a lot of Attractions in it and It's a good thing that you have that because you know when walking through london you pass by museum and he's the you look at it and say hey i'm get a free entry for this one and then you walk into this museums and you have a lot of things either way around when you walk by museum and you always have to decide are pay money for that. Pay not mix much more easier tool your few much. Relax visiting a lot of stuff and to have fun city. Those passes are therefore several cities even in in america. And i've used those puzzles for rome for peres for bacelona. So maybe you should look at it. That's a small tip and well again thank you for a pg for the show. And i enjoy it very much. Bye-bye and we enjoy your contributions to the show and to my liquor cabinet. Well there you go so if you're if you're wanting to do museum things or attractions within cities that's a good suggestion. Thank you steffan. Yeah very good suggestion. And it's as you said it's not everything to do things like that because my travel emo is basically buy a ticket to go somewhere and figure it out when you get there. They don't do like the extensive planning pre planning and everything no job. My friends nuts recently. When i did a couple of trips with friends just here in the us they're like. Do you want to plan meals for the weekend. I was like. Why would i do that. We can buy food in advance. I was like why we be scholars. Just gonna show up with my case. A beer in figuring out the food on steph is more into serendipity it always works out. Yeah i agree. That's that's the way i like to. There's more flexibility for people giants. Oh yeah the planet lose nuts. I think that was a resounding yes from a control in the middle to do some planning. But i also am semi. Well you need. You need a little bit of planning rates..

"Support this endeavor as we celebrate the unique freedoms which we enjoy as citizens of this great country all right. Thank you one of the captain kirks. We're looking at right now to see if they were trying to find it. I know i had seen their journey posted facebook group. I'm trying to remember which when it was really in our live audience and our brain trust know whether or not successful or not. How about lane street. I see that he is in the chat room. And now what do you think Sorry i've never gonna be able to find. It was sorry pressures on. Yeah well i thought i could look really quick but maybe somebody who can send us some information about that and he said he was gonna update us. Okay well then we'll let him update us and let us know how it all went. Yeah he recognizes was going to be read after the fact. I remember him saying that okay. Excellent thanks for sending that in Let's see we have some more What would you call this video. Actually and we're not going to play the entire thing or watch it but robert in Who used to be south of the big chicken in in marietta like to say as now in tucker georgia On the other side of town and he went on a big retirement adventure with his His mom they wanted to alberta canada and did a big trip and he recorded on video and he sent his link to that on youtube. So you should check that out if you wanna see. That's very interesting. By the way i did. Watch it and I recommend that you do as well. So thank you robert for that. I think it's Forget exactly how long the thing is. It's a fourteen fourteen and a half minutes so a little bit too long for us to play on the show but Check it out and oh looks like they did not make the i was just pulling up the Information on flight radar. I did find the link but then there was no foul up in the lincoln. The facebook group so i was thinking perhaps was not successful. So that by forty eight forty forty eight did not do not work did not pan out but Yeah maybe they'll attempted again perhaps let's see Oh also from robert in tucker georgia curious questions for the crew. What is okay wait. I need to share this Kind of funny not funny. But it's funny to me okay. Okay sure this image screen an window and that and sure okay. Faster at that. I am going to show goes onto them. Better so the Delta airlines Very similar to the Airline for which i fly It's also a seven one seven. It looks like a boeing. Some one seven and he's asking about the let me see. Let me read. Exactly what what he said What is that extra shiny square in the windows above the cockpit. I believe this is a recent addition to the fleet further. Why do these and the dc nine series fleet have these extra windows anyway. We've talked about because it's such an old design where you're navigating by celestial no reckoning nothing i those of that is just doing that just a pimp mayor tweak mirror something. Press your buttons buttons. Yep no you don't wanna should do. Yes you're right. What was his allegation. We carry by the way in my suitcase. I have it over there back. I can't sextant. Curious sex takes just just in case. We lose our navigation. Ps anyway these windows were made for clearing and when you know back in the old days good old days when actually pilots look outside clear for well i know i know rose. Moving around you facetious. Anyway i love. You know you've heard me in my opinion about. I love the eyebrow windows. I think i love them. But you know in sexy newer on the airplane. Yeah really okay. Cool but now i don't know they're they're kind of Messing with the sexy vibe here with this shining what did Robert call a chinese. Extra chinese experts. Is that an extra square or just an extra extra shiny square square. What are we. What are we modifying here with. The i think we're we're Modifying shiny yeah. That's that's the way i read it anyway. So this picture here if you're watching the video and if you're not then look at the Lincoln the sean. So he's referring to that something. That's in the eyebrow window some kind of a special new thing you know what that is. It looks like a jade no. It's not even a sunshine is it. It's a it's being used as shade. Yes actually it's just a piece of paper it's slice extra earlier part of our flight plan or whether or not tam's hundred bunch of garbage no chance. No but i thought the sun coming in this way up here so i can refer to them very easily looking up tilting my head back now. So one of the drawbacks of these eyebrow windows and the reason why many pilots have a contrarian view of these. Things is the fact that well we've learned a lot about uv radiation in the last couple of decades. And how. it's not good for you to your sunscreen while flying. I do not talk about smell maintenance. Thanks after the ship is does that. Disqualify me for the health plan. Yes yes i do. I meant to say yes. I do very happy to hear the on a daily basis so in lieu of sunscreen. Several pilots will put some kind of a physical blocking device in the in that little eyebrow window to kind of cut down on the amount of uv radiation. that's coming through and yeah Sometimes a one of those pieces of paper really do the trick blow. They're not all garbage. The not in this case if those are actually no thames that they're serving up. They are serving a purpose not garbage. But i guess after the flights over it will be being at the appropriate time to place in the garb of li-lives. Sometimes you know you. You don't really look up there to see if somebody has put some sun blocking items up in that. Little is not part of our checklist procedure. Day check but Yeah so that's what it is. Nothing fancy just a piece of paper up there to help block the sun beating down on us as trying to see if it was if it truly was extra shiny if it was like a piece of tin foil or something. There's one on those. Here's another picture of it Yeah it's it's Very low tech..

This same aircraft is embarking on an amazing adventure. We're calling forty-eight by forty eight against record setting attempt to land in forty eight. us contiguous states can take us. I'm sorry As soon as i said that i thought was right. Contiguous states with forty within forty eight hours so forty eight. Us contiguous states within forty eight hours finishing on september eleventh. By doing this. We're showcasing the utility potential of general aviation. Look what a single engine. Four-seater non cabin class airplane can do and also marking the twentieth nine eleven anniversary by celebrating our freedom to fly. Please refer to the attached audio clip recorded by one of captain kirks One of the two pilots on this trip both named kirk. And yes. they do. Intend to land at the k. I. r. k. kilo India romeo kilo kirks ville missouri airport. for clever. The trip will be over by the time. This feedback is published our report back regarding how it went. Even if we don't make forty eight hours due to weather or other safety issues safety. I we still have a good shot at setting a record since the current standing forty eight state record is many days longer. Probably going to beat your your state Lifetime different different Just for incident commander one ford. Yeah do it faster. Oh lopez Best regards slave inger.

Wow and as part of our introduction to its life and culture. We live for six weeks in a village called liikanen ham or lichen beside the klay river in east suffolk province. The wreck site was an hour's hike from the village. And anyway it's it's kind of. It's not the style of the story is not a news narrative it's more of a What would you call it a personal memoir pros that kind of thing Be beautiful though very well written rate Photos of papua and a guinea and the crash site. And all that kind of stuff. So we're gonna put a link to this article in shouts for you all to check it out Very interesting stuff. So thank you liz for that. I think the plane tail now.

"Airbus has a project called zero which looks to you. Pronounce that zero small e zero big letters e lucchese small which looks to use hydrogen propulsion for turboprop turbofan and blended wing body aircraft. They would be powered by hydrogen combustion through modified gas turbine engines Anyway here let me show you. It picks jer of this thing. This blended body thingamajig. And let's see here. Share the picture. jeffrey. That's what i'm looking for Share screen and here. We go just got to be a better way to do this. So there is the blended body airbus zero zero concept aircraft. How would you pronounce that. Zero t zero zero e because it's like zero emissions i guess Okay very clever. Although you know the airplane They're going to have to make it a lot. Bigger to carry passengers people. It looks kinda like a drone ugly to it is kind of see ray or something. Yeah does yeah stinkier skull door so either. That's a very big door. It's not gonna carry two hundred people in there. I don't think so now less they Put me suspended animation. A stacked in light of would. I think it's had suddenly still mica. Is that what those things micheals soulard panel. Mike is saying as you can see window. Free aircraft are coming now may actually be true sadly anyway there's not much point in having windows in linda body me up all right anything else to say about that is interesting that airbus's it we we cover the story of this all craft That bust developing awhile. We saw a model of flying And that's a great concept I think it'll be a very efficient aircraft designed he'd love to see happen So it'll be. It would be the first major change in airlines design We've really seen in many decades It would be great taking combine it with alexa car with a decent range. I think people will be jumping at the chance to Have it all right. Here's an interesting speaking of mica. He just made a comment in our live audience. He sent this to us The news item is from the bangor. Daily news dot com bangor maine Bangor international airport will be almost entirely closed on october. Four and five to allow runway repairs. Nearly every regularly scheduled flight in and out of the airport will not occur on those days though. One flight may leave in the early morning of october four air. Port spokesperson amy. Tibidow said wednesday lifelike will be able to operate its helicopter at the airport. But not it's fixed aircraft. The airport is recommending that travelers. Who have booked flights for those days. Contactor airlines if they haven't already received notice about cancellations for those who need to travel otherwise airport recommends passengers fly out of portland. International jet port two hours to the south. That happens to be where main man mica lives very close to their anyway. The repairs will address degradation in the runways concrete. That can create deformities airport said. The degradation is a result of the alkali silica reaction. The alkaline everyone knows about that gets you every time known commonly as concrete cancer. And i wish they'd just said that right off the now i would have not been so confused. Swelling reaction that commonly occurs in concrete over time. The bangor city council approved the airport using used grant funding bangor city council approved the airport using unused grant funding for the project in january. Okay well anyway. Mike his concern about this He's He was concerned that are he believes that. Bangor is the first emergency landing site in the us westbound from europe and the last one in the us eastbound and so i thought I looked at my Jefferson Flightdeck pro app and let me sure that with everybody here. Why is it. Takes so many darn clicks to do this Because it doesn't like you know okay there So that is from the flight deck pro app and you can see. Bangor is over here. Analysts can see cursor. now you can't be g. r. b. k. Bg are. He can't burger ville Is right over here in maine and then of course. We see a several Canadian airports Some labeled as emergency and this one here why c h. I'm not sure what that one stands for dino. Liz offhand in canada. Anyway it's the one in blue on the one on the blue see y. c. h. But anyway i know that one so i think it's sort of i feel lamontagne halifax and yes. Some of the others got moncton Halifax since jones up to the top the audience ganda. Which can you see to account see gannett. That's there as well. You got like four. Major airfields the In canada that you would only use when you coast in Banger is the most northerly united states. Failed i supposed to canadian. Fm yeah on normally people would go pasta. Bang to get somewhere sl- slightly Up at Buying a semi usable reason. Why not it's just gonna leave a little bit of a gap between the canadian divisions and the us diversions. Why did Contact mike carols The dispatcher extraordinary For acme airlines. And i thought you know if anybody would know What to say about this. It'd be mike. And so. I reached out to him and he got back with me and said obviously portland maine. Manchester new hampshire boston massachusetts syracuse buffalo. And an why. that's there. I can't get out. Thank you. And all the air all nearby the yellow circles that are not labeled are the adequate and e tops alternates. We have in canada. He said i will say though. It's funny that there are not any no thames published yet. That sounds like an airport authority airport manager issue so he said basically not problem. There are a lot of alternatives that they can use in place of bangor. So.

"Really busy to pause dizziness to absolutely make sure you understand entirely wild. Where so really busy up here. Which i find kind of amusing but yeah you're exactly right. Jeff delta kicked it off by making a sake come in which was entirely justified and They control oh was new on position and not really caught up with certain. Wasn't aware that he'd shut his injury down Reacted fright you. If either of those comments have been taken out the quesion things for the people. Fine you said The delta to start off with. Oh we were told it was going to be a while vio care for radio and he said oh sorry didn't realize he'd been told that. Are you going to be ready or do you need to be honest. That would have been fine. Exactly said yeah. Hey Sorry we weren't. We thought we were going to be delayed. A little bit more zoa. Just give us like two minutes to get the engine's running and we'll be ready to go or something like that but Anyway so i thought it was an interesting exchange and that sort of thing happens. How many times during a day. Just this is just in general a set of aviation. You wanna tell someone you guys to get your act together half but you don't actually say you don't actually say come on man get your together a good one steph from you just needs a hot. Yeah but it's hard to to get stair from staff if you're not if you don't have her you can't see her you got to hear olympia like this. You can see her now. They were already number two. Oh yeah that's scary all right. Well that's we have to say about that. When i think i kind of like the person who said stop that was that was going to mention that to stand brought it back up in the jeremy goes. Stop like there was like come on guys. You settled down. Kids get together. Yeah can't we all just get along. That would have been a better thing to say like that All right Adam see and this is from stuff dot co dot ends. Ed right ends head. Yes said news. Her mc air news zealand and global global aviation giant airbus are joining forces to explore. How zero emission aircraft could be flown in new zealand. You get this news. Edlund new zetland now. i understand. okay thanks. Ooh she's being snarky okay. Under a memorandum of understanding with airbus air new zealand will analyze analyze the impact. Hydrogen aircraft work operations and infrastructure. Airbus will provide the airline. With hydrogen aircraft performance requirements and ground operations to support the airlines decarbonisation.

"Feet. Msl about forty five hundred meters two point. Four nautical miles from the runway state of total destruction. There were no signs of survivors. Emergency services reached the crash site later that day and found all three crew perished aircraft was carrying building materials to intend jaya in danja. The tanja police report of the aircraft was located at an elevation of twenty four hundred meters. Doing we already know we did that did. I'm just another way to state it or let's say Anyway Here in baltimore hadn't said okay. Pardon me well. I've just said that the kept his mobile phone was still low onto the all. That's right i've When the phone is being cold there is no response. Well that's probably because the poor guys deceased probably. Yeah can't blame the cell phone at one. Nope you cannot live Let's show this picture here. never go and that is the Total state of destruction Remains of the aircraft and This is Google earth view of that region and the airport and then the It says approximate final position. And that's high terrain over there to the the left or to the i guess to the west of the airport if this is you know aligned with north which should be should be. Yeah that's probably more right. There is trying to. That's north anyway So sounds like they were attempting an approach in that low visibility conditions and obviously had to go around because they couldn't see the runway or whatever they were required to see to continue the approach and then somehow they mucked up the the miss apparently right but this was on go around departing aircraft or the airport environment or they were still inbounded that there were no they're inbound coming from the from the east across although it doesn't really say no there's not a lot of information about what approach there were flying or anything but i'm assuming that they were coming in from the east and say what treadway they were trying to and Unless i missed it. I skipped a chunk of stuff there. Well i don le or Anything about what runway. They were doesn't say no. I mean i do see the field is seven thousand two hundred feet and The aircraft was located out of asian of five to six thousand feet. No meets her. Two thousand four hundred meters feet is that seven thousand eight. There were about six hundred zero eight higher train with impacted having fled two miles so that they were climbing at three andhra feet of minute which is much if you do go around. But then again they all fairly high Yeah they loaded train materials. I mean yeah. Yeah i mean there's there's there obviously in poor weather It's possible that instrument failure or became disorientated. During the go round happens more frequently than we would like to admit to. I think that Yeah Yeah it could be either and they didn't climb sufficiently quickly. All they had less control the airplane all they are planning a major malfunction a good time for any of those new not at all. Okay well hopefully. We'll learn very sad to see a lovely twitter destroy. Yes that makes me very sad. It happens on a somewhat frequent basis but lots to do with where these aircraft fly in about his drain and unimproved fields. And things like that. So yeah but i mean if it's normally a fairly forgiving crop does it no shares. Many voices no not not really advise Plays nice mean steph. If i could. Thanks. she's any a shoulder punch away. No you'll be crying exactly. No it's a it's a forgetting aircraft to fly. But i think a lot of times. They're being flown in very challenging situations and Short fields unimproved fields mountainous terrain. Bad weather the on lots of lots of challenging situations. No well hopefully you will learn more information about what happened there and then if we do we'll pass it on to you the listeners so let's continue on with the next news. Item in this one happens to be well. You know what it's actually it's a video but it's really just audio that we really want to hear. And it's an exchange that occurred an air traffic control pilot exchange at at l. What does that. I don't know it's vaguely familiar. some small airports small airport in the middle of nowhere. Not very busy now so anyway At the atlanta international airport and this. It's an interesting recording now. I don't know how much of the conversation is included in this video from bass aviation I have a feeling that not everything is in here because it seemed anyway. Let's listen to it.

US to Advise Booster Shots for Most Americans
"There's reporting out of the white house that they're going to ask for another shot. I don't know what the sciences for that other than. Maybe they don't think the vaccines worked very well.

Myths And Realities Of America's Rural Economy
"Economists benghazi. Laurie says the first rule about rural america is that there is no rural america. Like fight club except with cow. I was saying that's that's not actually what he said. What do you actually said was this. There's so many different parts of rural america that it's a misnomer to actually categorize all on one monolithic theme. Bend means is that rural. america is not one thing. It's more like a collection of rural communities each with different economies with different strengths and problems and different characteristics and binga says one of the best ways to see this is to look at the racial ethnic makeup of the people who live in each of these rural communities if for example throughout much of middle america including the big farming areas more than nine out of ten people are white and for all of rural america. Roughly eight out of ten people are white. Now that's definitely higher than the six out of ten people who were white in the us overall but bengals very point is these figures mask. A lot of demographic diversity in the individual rural communities for example here are some estimates from his own analysis. And so if you look at our break down just a regional breakdown. Americans in rural areas in northeast is only about two percent in the mid west. But what a half percent in west. It's even smaller. It's under one percents. But in the south it is sixteen point. Six percent so the population of african americans in the rural south is greater than it is in a national one. Benji says that's why this part of rural america in the south is often referred to as the black belt. There's also the rural parts of the great plains states that have a high share of native americans living in them like in new mexico and montana. Plus there is rural hispanic centers in south west and west like in arizona and california and in all three of these regions. There is a smaller share of white residents than there is in the us overall. And that's why banca says it's a myth that rural america is all white. The second myth that needs to go bunga says is it. The rural american economy is all about farming and the extraction of natural resources like mining. These are definitely still important sectors. But they're far from the biggest. So service sector. Employment is the largest sector in rural communities. And it's been like that for a long time. In most rural communities the combined services education and health care and social assistance employed the most people in fact these sectors employ roughly the same share of people throughout rural america as in the rest of the country about twenty three percent in a lot of rural counties. A local school system or the hospital for example is the single biggest employer and even in rural towns that originally depended on a different industry or on a different employer. These services naturally sprung up around those industries to complement them says banca bow meat packing plants and in the twentieth century. Early part of twentieth century. Me packing plants were prevalent in urban areas. But they start to move out into smaller towns to become kind of like that one employer to town. Another example is automobile industry Move from the north moving down south to mississippi and alabama. A lot of it is to take advantage of the low wage labor market and the lack of united nation and so this is actually has pushed these rural economies away from agriculture. To service sector. This is also why it's a big deal. When the one hospital in a rural town closes there might just not be many other employers left plus it means that residents of that town have to look further out to access healthcare. This is especially a problem in places like the black belt where there's been a huge increase in the number of hospitals that have closed over the last few decades and finally myth number three that needs busting bunga says is the idea that rural america is dying or destined for permanent decline but in fact some parts of rural america are thriving about one out of every three rural counties has enjoyed strong population growth in recent decades with their populations actually peaking as they headed into the last decade. That's according to the latest data. Unfortunately that's also roughly the same share of rural counties that are depopulating about one out of every three rural counties has lost more than twenty five percent of its population since nineteen fifty. The populations of these counties are aging partly because so many young adults of childbearing age are leaving for the cities and suburbs in search of job opportunities and for these counties this kind of fishes cycle consenting people leaving means there's less money for taxes and investment to provide the amenities and services that people want and so more people leave which means the tax base drops again and so on and this is one reason why incomes are lower and poverty rates are higher in rural america then in the rest of the country but nothing about this cycle is inevitable it can be slowed or even reversed and says even in some communities where the population looked like. It would be in permanent decline. There have been success stories especially in the places that have a lot of immigration as so you have a lot of people. Immigrants coming in to work meat. Meatpacking plant manufacturing places. The other thing is that a lot of immigration From other areas in terms of people coming to the us for becoming doctors lawyers things like that a higher education and income communities. So you think about the mid west. There's like a population of say vietnamese and brass or these areas or like the monk population in minnesota that these places do not struggle as much with population loss because they're welcoming immigrants and that helps them to not only just having people there but then these people start stores or start their own business. So we see a lot of that entrepeneurship self-employment that's helping to keep that area of vibrant. Finally bengals primary message here. Is that people who live in cities and suburbs should not think of rural america is a place that's in decline in needs help instead. They should be turning to rural america as a place that's experienced a wide diversity. Economic challenges and triumphs and therefore as a place to find ideas for how to address the big socio economic issues of the day like climate change trade immigration education healthcare. Pretty much. all of them
The Floor, not the Ceiling: The Supreme Court in 2021
"Welcome back background boroughs. Ashanti here and we have another episode for today. I'm so excited to talk to. Bagnoli gilmore the state media campaigns director for planned parenthood federation of america onion. How're you doing today and doing. Well thank you so much for having me very excited to. Have you very excited to talk about the important work that you do today at planned. Parenthood really diving into the attacks that we've been seeing on reproductive justice reproductive freedom abortion rights and educating our listeners on how they can help fight back before we dive in intrude fashion. We have to know what brought you to this work awesome. Well i am a huge fan of your work and this podcast. I'm really excited to be here a little bit about me. I am in asian american woman. Born and bred in white middle america foreign raised in kansas city missouri. Where i still live today doing this work before coming into reproductive rights work. I was a journalist for ten years. And i think my work is a reporter. Gave me a front row seat to the every day. Impact that policies have on our lives. I was a healthcare reporter and solve the direct line between what happens in our state legislatures. What happens in our city. Councils and how that impacts our daily lives in how we go about it. And in the midwest that also means a very white dominant culture that sets the tone and the conversation and passes policies in that lens and i spent ten years covering those issues and decided to transition into media work for an advocacy organization that i have long admired and loved for the work that we do at our health centers across the country though now i focused on state policies state fights as we call it here at planned. Parenthood and the intersection. Those policies have on our ability to access reproductive healthcare went you said about how white men dominate policy. It's so true. And i want us to talk about what. We're seeing happening at state houses across the country. Most our listeners. Know the bg is one thing that i do my full time. Job is on the president of merge we focus on recruiting and training democratic women to run for office and we've had a huge focus on state houses in making sure that we're getting democratic women in there. I love talking abou nevada. Colorado new mexico all of those states are majority women and their state houses due to emerge alums and we see the impact that women have on the policies that come out and in a lot of the houses though where unfortunately seeing policy that is not the best when it's coming to abortion access so only two months into twenty twenty one were seeing these attacks on reproductive freedom in state houses and this statistic is crazy more than one hundred bills have been introduced in state houses in the past few weeks that target abortion access. There are so many reasons why state legislators are important. But this is one of the main ones hang you tell us about some of the things that are happening. Yeah impact that number continues to grow today when we're talking. That number is up to more than one hundred and eighty anti-abortion bills that have been filed or are pending an in early february. And that's why all. Because i only saw that hundred number last week. Yep we've seen almost another hundred a week. Yup absolutely And over forty. Five percent of those bills are some form of an abortion ban. And so you know. I think we're sitting at a moment where we are staring at an immense amount of opportunity and hope and change because of new presidential administration because of pro reproductive healthcare majority in congress yet our state legislatures do not reflect this reality where policies are made. I believe it is twenty nine states right now where anti-abortion politicians hold majorities twenty nine states over half And we are seeing a targeted attack on reproductive freedom our ability to control our bodies in lives because again this is about power and control. This conversation is rooted in white supremacy and has nothing to do with the health and wellbeing of any person who needs access to health care with really clear about that because that is what you will hear these politicians wax on about right and they'll even coop racial justice movements to talk about you know black babies and abortion end it is all rooted in white supremacy and the real question that we need to answer is who gets power and control of our bodies and our lives and our future right it be the politician predominantly white men or should it be being able to control that and so these are the policies that are getting past at the state level. And they're not just. Abortion bans a lot of these. The majority of these bills are incremental restrictions. That make it harder. Particularly on people with low incomes women people of color emigrants to access reproductive healthcare basic healthcare birth control annual exams cancer screening and of course abortion.
How Writer Karla Cornejo Villavicencio Maintains Control of Her Narrative
"This book was a longtime coming. Why right now? Well it wasn't a long time coming because it didn't WANNA write it. It was like a My parents came to this country to for me to have a better life Not to dwell in the migrants of my life like I wouldn't have been an immigration lawyer. You know that's that didn't feel like the proper repayment for my parents sacrifices. It was in far enough away from their migration and I felt like a proper repayment. And that's how I thought of my life that's why I still think of my life for their migration was something so far enough from their migration that it would make gum them not remember the trauma and so writing about immigration was not it and so just wrote about music for a long time and I wanted to be the guy in high fidelity in I was like this is me. I started writing this book in Two Thousand Sixteen because because trump happened and I thought I was the best person to do it. Because I didn't have someone like me to guide me as a teenager when I was undocumented in college I knew stuff was going to get really bad. I had no idea how bad it was. Get but I just was troubled by the idea that there is just. This was all going to go down and there was nobody like me who is going to say like the things that. I ended up saying my book because there was a lot of writing about immigrants would. We were expected to be patriotic. And we were were expected to be apologetic and we were expected to prove that we were good citizens and where we were expected to be grateful and that made me sick and I was like we are not like I'm not GonNa let the stand you right in the introduction to the undocumented Americans that you wanna give the reader permission to be punk. When was the first time you gave yourself permission to be punk? I've always been punk. I never accepted the have never accepted the title of a dreamer even when before Daca existed even before I could be like. I just don't feel comfortable with you. Know the way villain is as my parents and discharge transacts in like a narrative of innocence. I was just like Mike. I don't actually like Thought it was cheesy. I'M NOT GONNA call myself at people would invite me to things like where I would have to show a cap and gown and I was like I'm not GonNa fucking do that like Kurt. Cobaine with not to unlike bunk and a lot of ways but the way I define like being punked myself. Is that you understand that your accomplishments are not just your accomplishments. You understand that you belong to a community you understand that the world is a system you understand that the food on your table came from somewhere and you can envision the last hands that touched the food before they enter the package that you just open and that it's kind of like your haunted like you're haunted by your relationship to all of the people in this In this world and You Act accordingly and it also means like not giving shit about what people expect you to act like in order to fulfill a political or corporate goal or something so one thing that like has always kind of disturbed me has been like the Portmanteau that has the prefix undock you like undocumented. Roy or like on you something because that seems like branding and I just want like undocumented kids suggest like just be individuals like understand that they can be a part of a community but understanding. They also don't need to perform anything for anybody that they don't need to be consumed and at the same time you say. The dreamers have taken up a disproportionate amount of space in the immigration discourse. Well that's the media's fault that's not the dreamers felt talk to me about that well the media has been obsessed with them like I understand that that like I'm not bill nizing anyone but any specific person or anything but like you know of course it makes sense that you know kids doing sins in caps and gowns and showing their diplomas showing their grades. And that's for her sympathy for White Middle America when I was undocumented and I was a kid I remember being in like Eighth Grade A. Medallion bit was was like the Dream Act is going to pass. He was so sure of it. Now is thirteen years old. I'm thirty now. And the reason why he told me. The Dream Act was going to pass is because Americans love children and Americans love academically achieving minorities and I remember in two thousand sixteen when we had those marches for comprehensive immigration reform. My Dad and I walked with all those immigrants and people didn't go to work. People were risks. They're losing their jobs. And we all in white because we thought that would make us look not menacing. That's just branded in my brain. Just all of us marching down like just down lower Manhattan like all of these crowds and we were not afraid and people had like Mexican flags and then there were like. Don't your Mexican flags because people are going to be think that you like? You're not patriotic. My Dad made these t shirts that he had bought in bulk in Chinatown that had like the American flag on them. In the back he wrote we are the American Drina distributed them to his his undocumented co workers at the restaurant where he worked at and we wore those t shirts. And it's like we are not the american dream because it doesn't exist and i feel like the media's enraptured with dreamers because dreamers suggest that the american dream does exist that come here. You assimilate he go to college. You join the military and you know the American dream happens. But the camera doesn't stop filming. You know like after that. It's like well what happens. That guy is a temporary solution even if there was a dream. Act like what would happen. Is that these kids. We have to take care of our parents. We have to take care of her elderly who are sick who have been doing manual labor. Many cases for decades with absolutely zero safety net even though they've been paying taxes And we have to pay for them out of pocket and you know this idea that lake the possibility of inherited wealth which really is the American dream is unattainable for us because we have to take care of our
How will Coronavirus impact the 2020 presidential election?
"How do you think this health crisis will impact the presidential election Clarence well for one thing if you have any doubts about the importance of health care as an issue yes we wiped away by now that end just how it was double Bernie Sanders it issue he's not running a more but Joe Biden gave a speech just that as as a starting to take off and that was like a presidential speech and and he had to look presidential and he passed that that's something that's going to be a factor in this race but also how unpresidential president trump look it was initially as he tried to get control of the situation a lot of people I got really nervous from Wall Street all across middle America about the can you handle this I will say that the Americans on the whole what really stood out and but great jobs on the grass roots level so if this happened in October president trump would not be winning reelection I think the benefit here right now the only thing working in president trump's favor hi it's March right now there's still time for the economy to recover that given what we see from Japan and from South Korea people are starting to go back to work I don't know about Wuhan China in terms of Starbucks re opening that that I mean we have we can only trust it with a grain of salt we know what we can finally get coffee either that's that's true that's the same time the obviously the longer this goes out the more hurts the economy Dow Jones struck by a third within the last two weeks let's hope that's terrible for for president trump right and the one thing the blue chip the president trump always happy with the economy that goes south so though his real at one end of the weekend that the fed lowered interest rates to near zero and then that Monday morning the stock market opened crashed yet again I think that really got to president trump who really does kind of measure his of performance in his re electability by the strength of the stock market so I I somebody asked me the other day has an incumbent president ever been reelected in a time of recession I think the answer is going to be a no but this is a different kind of of business it's not a business recession it's a healthy thing and I think the voters will decide in November whether they think this president performed well on a health crisis I think the jury is very much out on that I think the answer is no now but as you point out he has time to recover Susan I think if you look at some key numbers to try to guess which is all we can do how things look months from now which is almost impossible because we don't know what's going to happen next really given the volatility of the situation but there's a new poll out that has his approval rating on this very issue fifty five percent I saw the world's data and I don't remember the stuff you guys are talking about the waste may stumble out of the gate I think they're gonna look at how he does now going forward and the second thing they're going to look at people always vote they can either their bank accounts now the president is always scored well look people don't like his personality but they like how he handles the economy and they may look to him to be the person over the Democratic Party to be able to lead us economically out of this more so than Joe Biden because he's got he he helped bolster the economy when he became president in twenty seventeen and they may see him as the person who is able to deliver us from this crisis

SF Giants exclude Aubrey Huff from 2010 World Series reunion, citing 'unacceptable' tweets
"I got it wrong in the last segment by saying that Aubrey huff was an average to below average major league. I looked up the stats over the break and he was slightly above average. So don't mean to disparage man Just because of what it is that he is saying that is getting him. Banned from giants. Reunion I do find interesting STU gods because I don't believe Sports franchises are generally moral entities. Bright leave business comes first and in San Francisco especially where you have a customer base. That is more liberal than Middle America. Say you can't be offending a women when he's saying things like quote divorce rates among athletes will continue to rise until the justice system is rightfully fixed. Way Women who have never thrown a touchdown pass hit a game winning three or hit a two. Oh slider deserve half of a man's hard earned money just for having babies and while it really shouldn't matter considering like his comments the fact that the giants actually have a woman as a first base coach does add another layer to this. I'm I wonder though because while I don't think that Aubrey huff makes for a very sympathetic victim. I do think that these reunion celebrations should involve the if people have their freedom if the players have their freedom right They should involve those players like the giants are doing an awful lot like the giant built. This monument of a BALLPARK ON BARRY BONDS. His feet and then kick them out of the park. The giants are also run by an organization. Run by a man the only man I can think of in baseball at the top of the sport who got into a very public videotaped and banned domestic abuse situation in front of people that people got to see and baseball punish. Is there a line though? Like if the met celebrate the eighty six team and Lenny Dykstra as a free man. Should the mets have the right to not include Lenny Dykstra and that celebration? Look I am just telling you that these are moral entities and when they start waving around there moralities I tend to be skeptical and think they're trying to protect their business. That's about customers and not morality. Yeah well this is a business venture and I mean I guess Kudos to them getting out in front of it because if Aubrey huff does show up to this and they either choose to ignore his past or do it. Dan says which is this really for the players. Let them get together. Whatever then you have all sorts of protests outside and becomes an ugly situation. And then what's going to end up happening is you'RE GONNA end up bending the public pressure anyways and uninviting him but my the Aubrey Huff I'm guessing has not changed much since two thousand ten. In fact he hasn't changed. The Times have changed. The world has changed okay but to. I guess to Dan's Point Aubrey. Huff was a big part of that team in a reason that he won the world series. And he's the exact same person now as he was then but the times have changed. Should it be excluded? Because The Times have changed. I mean they have a two thousand ten but I think what I believe. Is that the moralizing around sports. As if it were something pure doesn't need to infect these particular things which are just nostalgia and memories like you you 'cause almost as much attention bring almost as much attention to this nobody. Do you think a lot of people would have said you think a lot of people would have said Aubrey. Huff should not be invited to that. Because Lenny Dykstra has committed actual crime And plenty of people would have enjoyed seeing Lenny dykstra because the remembering the baseball player. They're not remembering the human being. I imagine it came up in some sort of promotions meeting where someone right raise the question. What are we? GonNa do about Aubrey. Huff and someone asked. What do you mean? And then they brought up these tweets these public comments and they wait everything look. I'm sure I'm Aubrey. Huff probably knows what's headed in his direction. If even chooses to attend one of these things at the very least it's massive amounts of doing it could be picketing it could be all sorts of ticketing union. I'm Aubrey huff. Could become the face of something larger in an election year in a in a tumultuous time in our country I think he could be lifted up to be something more than what. This is really a ten year celebration of a sports team. And I can't fault the giants for not wanting any part of the conversation in that city. There's picketing the cubs are actually celebrate that world series and Chapman. Is HE GONNA be invited or people are GonNa have a problem with that? I mean he was a big part of that team Chapman. He's got some stuff I just I don't know how you're supposed to do this stuff. When you say you've heard me say last week I hate being governed by public relations and what I'm telling you is the giants just invited it. And we might not have even noticed that is postulated bigger story. It it it may not have arrived in our doorstep. It might have been a San Francisco story but it might not have gotten all the way over here to the other side of the country. If the giants hadn't taken the preemptive public relations measure of punishing a guy who Understandably some of the things. This is not a defense of anything that he's saying. I'm just wondering whether or not they've brought attention to something this by virtue signaling here by by saying look we are a virtuous franchise. That doesn't tolerate Aubrey huff. Unless he's winning the world series for us. I mean I never would have known of Aubrey. Huff stances comments or what he tweeted out. Had the giants not invited into this? There hasn't been much of a secret people understand that he's been one of these people who says things that are objectionable questionable. Often you know just not ethically sound some of the things that he's doing and I understand why the giants wouldn't want that voice at a reunion but that face was in their uniform. That face was wearing Their colors and holding up that trophy and I just don't get making ten years later a ceremony. That's meant to celebrate the achievements. I don't get Bringing this kind of unwanted attention to your franchise by taking a measure that I feel is something. That doesn't have a lot of precedent. I don't you know if a guy's in jail because students is bringing up Chapman thing Chapman Chapman lose games in baseball for that domestic abuse crime. I know that it is something that was questionable when they signed him because they overlooked whatever you Think the morality should have been there in order of in order to choose one hundred and three mile an hour fastball. He was suspended. Thirty Games So you've got to assist Aubrey. Huff not been suspended right and I hate for this any of this to sound like a pencil plate for ten years. I I hate for any of this to sound like. I'm defending this dude. Or what he says but I just don't get the idea of attaching morality to a reunion

You better because if that's why. Nobody was complaining last year in Toronto. 'cause they won if if you don't win the championship then you're going to get criticized for low manager. I think it's ridiculous. You don't like it. No not at all. We talk about the fans and all that but it's also deceptive. There are people. I don't know if this is true. Some will tell you that told the clippers. He's only gonNA play sixty five games. I I I was told I was told by somebody in the building. Part of the discussion was sixty. Five right right and look. I have said Kawai Leonard under deserves to be considered the best player in the world. Right now I think is the way he what he did last year. The play offs even his start this year he deserves. It had a now. Janas honest could take it this year. Lebron could try to get it back this year. Anthony Davis whoever but right now Kawai deserves that title. But I'm telling you I can't I can't give you that if you just sit now randomly because you don't feel like how you're healthy. It's it's three weeks into the season. Eight Games why in the world are you saying now almost think it's a mental block because in his nine years in this being nine so say eight first full years he only only plays seventy or more games twice. I almost feel like he. He's like if I played too many games. I'M NOT GONNA be healthy like I. I wonder if there's a mental by why in the world are you sitting when you're healthy. Well I think it worked for him. I think I'll say this. I Like Adam silver a lot David. David Stern was the owners. Commissioner Adam Silver is the players commissioner and if I start giving my kids ice cream for breakfast they e-expect ice cream for breakfast and was that ice cream due to them is gonNA ruin health and I'll say this. I think this is bad. Optics for the League for Middle America Erica. You Go to pay four hundred bucks. And you don't get Colli Leonard in Janas and I I would tell Adam silver to his face. He is incredibly pro player. Sure and so. What are the players do they go off? Players are doing in a game here there you know and certainly the last week or two. I don't mind when you're getting ready for the playoff games. That's fine but this is just beyond the Pale. In my opinion it really is an atom. Look Lee doesn't like this you think. ESPN's Inter it hurt the players pocketbooks. And maybe that's what will change and that's why the the players Association's get involved because the next TV deal you don't think. ESPN is going to bring this up if there is no question TNT in ESPN. Dan are fury right so that will lower their offers so that will affect the salary cap and what the players are making so the players association should get involved to be like like look. You gotta play when you're healthy. Play the Games. I and here's another thing and again I I like. I said he's a tremendous player. You can't dislike him as a person because he's quiet. He's low maintenance all that but I can't let's not let's stop the Michael Jordan stuff. I see your game I love the mid range. The two dribbles no wasted dribbles to dribble. Pull up you do it on both ends but if you just sit now games because you don't I want to play I don't want to compare to. Michael Jordan does play every

C. Georgia Board of regents member Dean offered resigned Thursday amid a state investigation into Allen negations he forged a state employee signature and filed fraudulent invoices to collect taxpayer funds for his company Buddy my just to adult you'll notice some changes I got allergies stop it the State Attorney General's Office in Georgia Bureau of Investigation issued an arrest warrant for all on suspected racketeering and for criminal attempt to commit theft by taking now so he here's the situation he he has a company called Allied Energy Services they work on permanent financing construction of solar waste to energy AH projects no they basically taking advantage of green new deal nonsense although it's been was founded in seventy-seven it's got over five billion dollars of Energy Products and incense Fill in North America. He suspected of transmitting fraudulent documents to a company called a recipient he said the University of Georgia had four hundred eighty seven thousand dollars debt with his company and he sold that debt to verse sat and forge documents from Uga employees you know interestingly enough his wife was the executive director of the Georgia lottery she's now saying she's filing for divorce she had no idea he was doing this sort of stuff but there's a political catch we'll get into it when we come back hello there it is Eric Erickson here the Erik Erikson show the full number is eight seven seven nine seven Eric eight seven seven nine seven three seven four to five we were we should have some good news Oh you about sooner rather excited okay okay okay we gotta get into the political implications of this story if you're just tuning in here across the state of Asia a region from the border Georgia border regions Dean offered abruptly resigned on Thursday the GBI is looking for him he's going to turn himself in he is accused of arranging so in finance now there are you know you can do this with the lottery to you do you win the lottery and you get them to pay you out twelve million dollars ten million dollars a year over thirty years so you're going to get three hundred million dollars well you can go to a go to various finance companies and they will buy your they will pay you two hundred million right now and in exchange you sign away your three hundred million so they'll make that company knows make one hundred million dollars because the state is not going to default on the lottery payment and you you check the wrong box you decided to spread out over time you can go to one of these companies well this is the essentially what this Guy Dean offer did he said he had a debt of four hundred some odd thousand dollars coming from the University of Georgia and he minded he sold the debt the debt from the University of Georgia system was four hundred eighty seven thousand nine hundred eighty two dollars and so he sold old the debt to a group called percent funding and provided them all the documentation the signatures from the University of Georgia all of that but there's a problem it looks like he did it in excess of one point seven million dollars over time that the various debts that he had and he got immediate working capital company and here's the catch according to the State of Georgia Steve Forged the signatures he never actually had contracts with the system and he forged signatures now Debbie offered his wife was the former chief executive George lottery she says she is very socked shock by the allegations she was planning to file for divorce she is definitely now filing for divorce this guy is going to go to jail by the way you should note offered is one of the regions that Nathan deal spur of the moment added to the board remember when Nathan deal was leaving Nathan deal added a bunch of people to the board of regents basically preventing Brian Kemp from adding people to the board of regents Nathan deal stack the border regions on his way out the door four and Jeff Duncan actually blocked those appointments and the reason Jeff Duncan blocked those appointments was because the governor there's Office Governor Deals Office transmitted the notice to Jeff Duncan the problem was that Jeff Dunkin was not yet the he had not been sworn in yet as Lieutenant Governor so Jeff Duncan said you didn't follow the proper procedure we're GonNa kill these and and they they worked out a compromise with the the deal administered the former L. Administration and they left offered on the board they replaced to other people but in the left offered on well the Democrats Jim Jordan who's the abortion advocate in the state senate she is blowing up Brian Kemp over this issue saying well he's got this Guy Dean offered to resign why hasn't he forced the resignation of Jim Beck Jim Beck you will recall is the State Insurance Commissioner Jim Beck is suspended did from office because he's under a federal indictment for corruption and all sorts of stuff Jim Beck essentially doing this offered guy did he was creating voices blaming work was done and getting the underwriters association to pay him money through third party entities and so Beca is probably Jim Beck a more expansive charges if you will they revise the indictment somewhat made it more expansive I am told reliably that they tried to cut it deal with Jim Beck and Jim Beck has refused to cut the deal because Jim Beck doesn't want to go to jail and the US Ernie insists that some jail time be served by the state interest Mr so they're gonNA fight they are going to go to trial well Jim Jordan in the state Senate is attacking Brian Kemp for not forcing Jim Beck who is under indictment to resign from office he still allowed to collect his paycheck he is still allowed to have his state insurance but if it's I'm told Beck won't resign because his wife has cancer and he needs his state insurance benefits to cover his wife's medical coverage that's why hasn't resigned he otherwise would've but here's what the in Georgia tacking. Brian Kemp on this they're smart I mean gingered smart person she's got to know this Jim Beck is a statewide elected official. Brian KIP cannot force him to resign now I guess Kip could call the state legislature in impeach but the state legislature. George Actually there's precedent on this the state legislature in Georgia does not impeach people who are indicted they don't impeach people who are indicted because they're not convicted did if Jim Beck is convicted he will automatically be removed from office and they really do believe in this whole innocent until proven guilty as a lawyer you would think Jim Jordan we know that as a lawyer you would think Jim Jordan would know the governor can't force him to resign but Jim Jordan really wants to run for higher office she's thinking of running for the Senate and she can't just run fetal heartbeat she can't run on fetal heartbeat because one heartbeat just got held up by a judge but to you know despite some of the polling out there fetal harvey really isn't that of a deal for most people and she knows if she's defined as the pro-abortion candidates she's not GonNa win in Georgia so she's got to come up with so I guess she's GonNa take this Corruption Angle with the governor I don't know that that's going to help her very much but that's the angle she wants to take now is the corruption England she's attacking Brian Jump for not forcing Jim Beck to resign and I don't think that's going to help for but it's it really is worth calling her out seriously it's worth calling this out to attack the governor for not doing something that he has no power of doing but that's the way the Democrats play these days ACE so it's worth calling them out meanwhile in other state news not we don't need to Belabor all of that in other State News Jack Kingston who represented Savannah he has filed his paperwork to run for the US Senate seat of Johnny Isakson also very interesting here randy Evans has done so Randy Evans is the president's ambassador to Luxembourg very influential Republican served on the Republican National Committee has been very helpful in Georgia redistricting and other fights Randy Evans has also filed his paperwork for the city you know there are a lot of people who say Randy Evans really helped persuade the president to look at endorsing Brian Kip now most people think Sonny Perdue had more to do with it than that but but that is out there Republican primary in twenty fourteen if you'll recall he and Karen Handel Ran and Kingston's a great guy but he's been on the coalition they would like to go beyond their beyond the bay so for example Doug Collins is probably the the front runner if we're honest about a Doug Collins up northeast Georgia congressman is probably the front runner Doug Holland has high name I d he has national visibility he the president likes seem Republicans Liking he fires the base He knows how to raise money Doug Collins is probably the front runner no disrespect at all intended to Doug Collins who I love we had him on this program a lot I think one of the things that Doug Collins has to answer is David Purdue and Brian Kemper Boe saying they would love to expand the base how does Collins expand the Base Doug Collins make no mistake about it Doug Collins can probably turn up the bass more than anyone else collins undoubtedly in my mind can mobilize Republicans but here's the thing David Purdue set down with the Atlanta Journal Constitution can sit down with Gregg Bluefin and he says he implicitly trusts Brian Kemp to pick the nominee he's got three criteria the two of them have on our side they gotta support the president's agenda including immigration trade in healthcare the second thing is they've got to be able to communicate the message because republic gins don't have a great history of communicating and the third is this Georgia is a growing state and the Republican Party needs Rawdon with it. The Republican Party is a growing state and needs to broaden you know so I'm I'm star I think I have a preferred candidate in the race there is school board member but he's more than that he's a strong conservative strong conservative he's on guy and he's been on the he's worked for Brian Kemp he's been on the he was the chairman of the Board of Trustees for Chattahoochee Technical judge and he has been part of the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce in Georgia he's a good -servative he is very conservative he is solidly pro-life solidly Republican he knows how to communicate and he would expand the base there are more black voters in Georgia than there are Hispanic voters and I got to tell you the data consistently always shows the same thing black voters in Georgia may vote for let's say you did Herschel Walker now he actually lives in Texas so I don't think it could be him.

Mueller sounded an alarm on Russian meddling in the 2020 election, what's next for Trump?
"Special counsel Robert Muller detailed his report about Russian meddling in the twenty sixteen election he reminded lawmakers that the report did not exonerate the president and was not a quote unquote which on to some of said he also said it was not a hoax that Russians were engaged in trying to impact our election Democrats zeroed in on possible obstruction by the president but Muller repeatedly told them to refer to his report so what's next now that the molar hearings are over ABC's Erin to Turkey talk to political analyst Steve Roberts about it well I think that there will be more and more Democrats who will say look we don't have a choice here it's been made very clear over and over again that a sitting president can not be indicted so if you then say a sitting president is not above the law what's our option do we just let him go or do we move toward the one other constitutional provision which is impeachment I do think that there are more Democrats will come around to that point of view but I think that the leadership of the Democrats will continue strongly to resist that pressure they will try to say look the best course here is to focus on the election let's take from the hearing molars a point that the president was not always truthful this is one of the weaknesses of Donald Trump a lot of voters including someone voted form don't find it particularly truthful don't find a particular trustworthy let's focus I think the leadership will say and I think many of the candidates will say let's focus on what we've learned about his character what we've learned about his weaknesses what we've can then take to the voters and argue this man should not have a second term it's much easier to deny a president a second term at the ballot box that actually impeach him something that has never happened in American politics here and so do the Democrats the the Democrats running for president take up this fall on the campaign trail I think some of them will will talk about impeachment you know with a live as Warren I has tried to identify with that idea and this is emblematic of the split in the Democratic Party this is a very good example in very good insight Eric into the dilemma facing the Democrats as they grapple with how to run against Donald Trump because the people who are for impeachment are often also for a much more drastic and liberal programs whether it's a total overhaul of the healthcare system whether it's a reparations for slavery whether it's free college tuition those lines of argument tend to be a voice by the same people who were also out front and impeachment the counter argument for a lot of Democrats is this is not a liberal country only twenty six percent of Americans call themselves liberals the Democrats who have won the presidency in the last forty years there only two of them Bill Clinton and and Barack Obama eighteen for the being the next Obama and Clinton aim for the middle America that's our target and that's the argument this can

And it was also interesting. We've got into this whole discussion about about placebos and the research that goes on about how. People when they are even told that they are taking a placebo, get better. So it's not just the control group that doesn't know that what they're being handed are sugar pills, or sugar water, but people who are actually handed a vile that says, placebo and told this has no value, but ticket three times a day, six AM noon, six pm, and you'll get better.

He's older. He's America's dad. He's the jello guy. He's all that other stuff. So the book chasing Cosby is out. We asked her to come back and talk about that a little bit on coast to coast tonight. But our main guest is, is Dahlia Schweitzer, and we're going to talk about the, the L A private is, you know, you can't grow up in America without experiencing some level of filmed lar-, or TV nor or, you know, the books that have been written about the hard boiled.

So we'll, we'll sort of tackle the subject of the metamorphosis of the private detective figure, and the, the detective Sean itself. But also as we head into this summer. Right. Is officials kickoff of the summer with Memorial Day weekend. So many people are interested in books and, and getting a good beach read. And so, we'll talk a little bit about what makes these great mysteries. Why is it that we love these mysteries these detective mysteries so much? And, and then what, how do they function in our society? And we'll get to that coming up on coast to coast AM. I also have a quick apology for something last night. I got wrong.

"Russian and math. Here's how you wanna look at mass the difference between meth and heroin. It's like, whoa. And go right heroin shows you out and mass picks you up. Now, it also can make you hallucinate and be like, you know, do things that you would not normally do. But the the the overall impact of mass is that it speed. And people that are suffering from depression. This is this is a reason for them to get up every morning because they know they won't feel that heavy burden of depression. If they're going to get their their meth-, right? It's like it's like almost like an adrenaline rush. Yeah. You know, I guess is probably the best way to maybe as he said, it's it's like speed versus or upper versus Downer. If you will, you know, as opposed to heroin, or, you know, an opioid, for example, what we're seeing is that methamphetamine use is now clip thing, you know, the the issue of opioids in in parts of the country, including a high. Oh, that's starting. We're seeing again and uptick in in math because there's been so much focus and rightfully so on the epidemic. You know? It's like what the mole you try to deal with one issue and a new one of the Kerr's. Appears one that you know, kind of has had a resurgence because it has been there previously. I mean as far as solutions are concerned. I mean, I it's it's a number of things. I mean, obviously, you want to able to mitigate the access to the to the drug sure whether that's through law enforcement, you know, the tracking systems that we have implemented those sort of things to try to make it more difficult to get things you know, that to me yourself as opposed to stuff that's being shipped in as well. But I mean, I think that it's with mental health, particularly in rural communities there is a level of 'isolation as well. So, you know, we often talk about mental health issues. We say, you know, you need somebody to talk to we want to reduce the stigma. So you're feel more comfortable with presenting in saying, I you know, I think I have a problem, but the the coastal competency around rule communities is really one of self. Efficiency and being able to deal with things on onto. So that is to be taken into account any kind of intervention from mental health perspective really also needs to take cultural competency, you know, in into account in in the intervention design, but you know, really stuff with meth in particular is making through you don't start it because it's really really really hard to stop it. So you know, it's about early intervention with mental health issues. You know, I Dennis, you know, those those Bility's to treat and frankly in the case of Ohio, Medicaid, expansion has been very helpful. You said that because it is a naval d- the local mental health and addiction boards, which is how we service community mental health in in at the county level. It's been able it's enabled them to free up resources to do things that they wouldn't have necessarily been able to do when it comes to capacity and access to treatment to long-term recovery beds, and that sort of thing, so you know, the other thing that nobody talks about is the issue of the severely and persistently mentally ill the SPF population because these folks need permanent supportive housing. And there is none would means that they end up in the jails they end up in nursing homes, which is totally inappropriate, you know, and they and they end up on drugs, you know, and again back in the criminal Justice system, or whatever, and you know, trying to figure out and identify those that have. You know, veer about health issues, and how to enable them to be as independent as possible with permanent supportive housing, which basically does not exist. So they, you know, have the resources that they need to be able to to be healthy. Capri cafaro.

"You know, there's there's a lot of this whizbang development, you sing with million dollar condos going in and downtown Pittsburgh a place where no one wanted to live ten fifteen years. Yeah. And now, you know, it's it's becoming very difficult to to to live in these places. And you're seeing prices that are not quite akin to what you're seeing in New York, but their approach. Coaching them. And you're thinking how the is anyone afford to live in the. Yeah. Well, you know, I wanna interrupt you for one for one second. And I don't know if you've found this to be true. But one of the most important components to Pittsburgh getting back on its feet was not was not political leadership. Not that not that. There's there have been good and bad. But I believe it has been civic in the leadership and the foundations. Oh, yeah. They if it were not for them. I think that that we would have ended up being very much like some of those areas that that we've been through. We could have been like I dunno Gary, Indiana, which is really sad. Yeah. These are these are the foundations and the and the old money and Vince berry back that beats them they saved they saved downtown. Pittsburgh. Absolutely. It was kinda it was Jack Hynes nineteen. I think it was seventy eight who went after you know, it was this year after. Monday after everything fell apart. And he turns around and says we're going to reinvent the co and create a cultural district and everyone looked at him and said these are shot in a beer, blue collar people who just left her job in steel mill and you wanna bring do about culture and everybody laughed at him. But he was right, right. He ripped up. Liberty avenue tore out all of those read the entire red light honky tonk district, and now it's nothing, but like these incredibly innovative arts and institutions, but also there's banking, and there's healthcare it. We were blessed because of our foundation. Yeah. Absolutely. They like I said they they stepped in and save the city. Yeah. So what what are your goals? Well, we're trying to tell stories from the entire region. The post on Dustin America, not just stories of who succeeding, but who's struggling and what the? Knows what the challenges are along the way. We're also going to be focusing a lot on veterans issues because there are a lot of veterans that come from this region the serve then come back here and are looking for opportunities in how who's succeeding in finding them who struggling this is something that that I'm going to be focusing on personally because I've done a lot of work with veterans stories related to to not just my time, and Afghan STAN but back in the states, you know, veteran related issues PTSD traumatic brain injuries other maladies that you develop while while fighting on the front lines. These are these are the kinds of things that stick with people for decades. And we as a society have to figure out how to to treat. So that people can who have served the country can then come back and have a fair shake it the American dream. Well, and that's the thing about veterans. And that's the thing about the military community. They make up one half of one percent of the entire population in this country. There are very few people in congress that have served in the military. These are very important people to not only represent us in Washington. But also, I mean, they veterans are very isolated. They come back home, and sometimes they just either live in a very isolated area or they live in an area with people just like them again with a layer of 'isolation from the rest of the country, and they sort of pull themselves in and I think that we need to do a better job of shining a light on that and telling those stories, and I'm really looking forward to your to your look at that. How can people find post industrial post industrial dot? Com. That is really smart of you. My partner who an editor and chief match drought..
