So tell me about we that we now know the church But now tell me what happened to the press that was covering this. Sure. Well, as you mentioned, we don't just report the news. Sometimes we try and get involved in it. If we think we could make a difference, and one of the things we do is we crowdfund You know what that is? Everyone chips in a few bucks of it. And before you know, you got enough to do something important so Um, we crowdfund civil liberties lawyers to fight some of these crazy lockdown tickets for people, and so far, we've we've taken 607 cases across Canada, and we've even recorded a French version off our program. And I know you're gonna laugh a Yiddish version because there's Lots of yetis speaking religious Jews in the city of Montreal picked on because because they have to pray it certain hours, and they can't do synagogue by zoom because they don't use electricity on the Sabbath, sewed. There's a religious Jewish community in Montreal who gets picked on a lot. So we made a special video offering them legal help. So we have French English. Yes, we have lawyers across the country. The thing is Police forces don't like that. Because they want people to pay these huge finds. They want them as a deterrent. And if people aren't scared anymore, maybe they won't be so compliant. And by the way, we ask prickly questions like Hey, how come you were so abusive when you made that arrest, or can we have some disclosure of your case? Or maybe this isn't constitutional so Because we both do a the journalism and be the fight that finds activism. We have a new set of enemies of revenues, including the police, and they started physically pushing our people around. When we cover things in Montreal, we had one reporter and the who himself is Jewish. And when the police would stop him, they say, Oh, it's the Jew Media or yours. Oh, my gosh. And that's all on tape. By the way on, it's sort of bug because I thought Feel tiny Semitic that feels like policing. I mean, maybe he means like a Jewish newspaper, so I don't want to jump to a conclusion. But it gave me the willies because he's not there as a Jew. He's there like we have only two Jewish journalists. We have Muslim journalists. We have Christian. We we've We're not a religious Company like it's not like we stand up for everyone's freedom of religion, but we're not a Jewish media. Um, so they started really picking on our guy Yankee and so we sent three or four more reporters to back him up. Who, by the way happened to be from different religious and racial backgrounds, and then police targeted them handcuffed, then gave them thousands of dollars of fines. Pushed them physically assaulted them. So we had one reporter. They pushed him around. So we sent three or four reporters that pushed them around. So this weekend Then we took half the company. We took 17 of our people to Montreal to stand with Yankee And our other journalists. So where big high visibility tiny's saying press and to go and report on these lockdowns to show the police that we're not going to be pushed around. We actually hired a lawyer to accompany us on the streets because it was important to us to assert our freedom of the press. So we had 17 people backing up our one Montreal where the police went nuts. They found our Airbnb. We were staying at an Airbnb, which was actually a little houseboat together. That way. We had privacy and we were all together in one place.

I grew up in brossard and i spoke french better that i spoke english. I like. i spoke french better than they spoke. Mandarin i like it was i was truly like one of y'all got plucked away.

There are one hundred eight hundred ninety pages of other women stories with pictures and snippets and bios of other female fighters and the chapter titles are like ammunition owed to weapons it. The fight in vilna and i should say the title of the book was flowing into ghettos women in the ghettos but this was a very different ghetto story than i had ever expected or anticipated

"He actually got his medical degree back in two thousand eighteen. My ultimate goal is to step on this deal with the md back pocket nigger dowdy. And he's the only active. Nfl player with a medical degree today. When the pandemic hit laurent decided that you know what. I wanna volunteer. Have this degree wanna be able to help out by. Read more about what was going on immediately. My thought when from oh my god this is stuff for me to. How can i help. Long-term healthcare facilities nursing homes. They were the hardest especially in the quebec area. Also in ontario where i am from. So laurent saw the stress that was put on the healthcare workers and he was like if i can just get in there and alleviate some of the stress on them as well as you know lifting up the spirits of some of the most at risk patients in the elderly. I'm going to do anything. i can possibly do. Our duty as a citizen to really think about what. Can i do to fight this thing. Just that biographical detail alone is crazy that this is a guy who managed to get a degree in medicine while playing right guard in the nfl and playing by the way really well. The chiefs signed him a couple of years ago to a five-year forty one million dollar contract extension but to get back to his medical career. I mean it speaks to this very unusual path. That laurent has taken to the league. So tell us. Where laurent from. And how do you grow up. Laurent is from a town outside of montreal. Thirty minutes outside of montreal. Mount saint hilaire quebec is obviously predominantly french-speaking part of canada and he grew up. Speaking french is first language. His parents were like you know. We want to do things different. I'm mired win. My parents raise me. They told me when i was a kid to take risks to take his dad who is a teacher and agriculture. Actually said you know what my dream to be able to sail down the coast with my family for a year long sailing trip so he quits his job him and his wife dee land along with iran his two sisters gotten a boat and sailed down the coast for a year all the way down to the east coast of the united states. Right down to the caribbean while he was there he was home schooled by his parents while he actually learned different life experiences. So they're sailing up and down the atlantic coast. What do they do when they're not in a boat like what's their business how they make a living laurent's grandfather owned a winery francois. His father was working at the winery and when they came back. They decided to sell the winery. Francois got involved in the culinary arts and he opened up a bakery and now they have several bakeries in the montreal area. So you have this fabulous this decidedly non traditional lifestyle that. They've embraced where they're sailing together. The running a vineyard. They're running bakeries. I mean this. Forgive me mathis. Sounds like the idyllic french canadian life and it's because of these very different childhood experiences matt that laurent doesn't even start playing football until he's fourteen years old. He commits studying medicine at mcgill a very prestigious university in montreal and he ultimately decides to play. Football at mcgill is well. What do you think you'll laurente to. The game of football laurent has always said that. He loved being on the field with his teammates. He loved working as a team much. Like as a medical doctor working on a floor with a team an operating room is kind of similar as football field in the sense that there's eleven people or twelve people working together and you've got to know where you fit in that team so i think he's taking.

Hi Lo Silver
"Taiwan is a director and global markets. At the bank of montreal. He wanted us to stress. his comments. reflect his personal opinions and are not the official position of the bank of montreal. So i asked him to give me his thoughts about the very essence of silver. Sometimes we call in our circles the devils metal because when it moves it can sit for a long time and not wrote but when it moves it can move rapidly and with a certain amount of viciousness fed devils metal sunday commodities trading seems way more exciting than it usually does like the devils metal sounds very treacherous so there are several theories that have been bouncing around the market now a bites spike in silver. And why it happened and who is behind it and let's not forget silvers. Thirteen percent swing oviously pales in comparison to the nearly five hundred percent jump in price that game stop stocks or last week. But that doesn't mean that there weren't any casualties in the silver market. Yes there were winners and losers ryan. I asked tie with a maybe that was the whole point. That like with game stop stock. Some traders might have tried to talk up the price of silver with the aim of hurting some big wall street players who are in the silver market. So that's the first theory and it was one that tired hurt as well. The stories made. It's made its way on reddit. Which one was that j. P. morgan was desperately short Silver and would have to cover. This was a way to get a j. p. morgan which is The biggest bank in the united states that conspiracy theory has been around for a long time. It is also a canard jiffy morgan's one of the biggest bullion banks in the world. They lend lot of metal out but they typically do not lend it out uncollateralized they lend metal but you have to give them dollar so while they may be short metal in a location for a short period of time. It's never anything that could come anywhere near to bringing a major bank to its knees much less. Jp morgan so this was already going after j. P. morgan no j. p. morgan not in in the crosshairs got it so theory to then so those. This bows going around. Maybe some of the short seller's who got squeezed on game stop last week have been trying to distract what ty likes to call the red legions to shift their attention and their money and their trading activity to silver. That seems a little farfetched. I think if you were short. Jimmy and amc Entirely consumed with trying to make sure your position workout. You had enough funding the hold as long as you could. I'm not sure if those would be the folks who would open up another another front in the in the war. So to speak against the raiders. You can't dismiss it completely out of hand but that seems fairly unlikely so this wasn't like the short seller's strike back no okay well we'll maybe not or maybe it was just a bad strike maybe just about strike strike so theory three then that some traders who long silver which means that they own it an expected to rise in price. Maybe they kind of infiltrated the the red at message boards in order to jack up the price of silver so that they could then make some money. Yeah they they were like double agents kind of double agents in the market. Exactly that you know. That is an appealing narrative. If you're if you're long and you are and you're trying to push the market with with news like this even though you could certainly great reddit account and use a vpn and try to keep your anonymity. This would clearly be considered. I think mark manipulation. Now i'm not an attorney but this type of thing that might lend a a clever entrepreneur. A long stay in federal penitentiary in. That's pretty that's a pretty steep price to pay if you're a silver traitor and you join read it and say like hey everybody jump into silver. You literally go to jail. You could literally go to jail so that seems like the stakes are a little bit too high for me. That is a high price to pay for the devils medal and indeed. So it's maybe not that either but the fact is that something did happen to silver this week tie. It was like a combination of rumors and the willingness of silver traders to grasp this opportunity that was presented to them by this price surge the mindset of market makers and many traders are. Oh you want to push it. You push as much as you like and once you're done we'll see where we end up in It will go on it. We'll go on trading and doing what
Google abandons effort to create video games less than 2 years after it was announced
"This is not me piling on but as you can see this will play almost directly off of what we talked about yesterday. Google has announced that it will close to stadia game studios one. La in one in montreal and that stadium ahead. Jade raymond is leaving. This means about one hundred and fifty game developers will be laid off. I believe but what everyone is wondering about is what this means for the stadium. Project overall quoting kukuh cacao began to hear rumblings from sources close to stadium last week that google service was heading for a major change. One games industry source told kentucky that google was cancelling multiple projects. Basically games slated for release beyond a specific twenty twenty one window though they believed games close to release would still come out today. Bring some clarification. Google will continue to operate the stadia gaming service and it's ten dollar monthly stadia pro service but it's unclear how many if any exclusive games will still come the service though. The company has indicated that it can still sign new games and will bring more third party releases to the platform it nevertheless will look to many like a drawdown of the plan to have state run as a bona fide competitor to console platforms. The company plans to begin offering its stadium tech to publishers opening up the possibility for stadia to become the streaming tech for other video game companies. Google stadia operations longtime console. Executive phil harrison will focus on pursuing these new partnerships and quote. So let me attempt to parse that or at least translate it into non gamer laymen talk. Google stadia appear to be getting out of the game. Making business of having in house game studios. The plan apparently is to now focus on offering stadia directly to publishers a other gaming platforms alongside offering stadium wpro to the public. So that kind of makes sense. Because i've said before. Google internally at least i've heard largely. Thanks have stadium as the raison. D'etre for google's entire google cloud initiatives or at least maybe vice versa point as stadium is largely justification for google's continued huge investments in cloud stuff. Even though google cloud projects are significantly behind amazon and microsoft at least as being leaders in this field and remember. Google is in cost cutting mode. It seems like so on the one hand. This actually makes a ton of sense as david. Rettig tweeted quote with stadium. Potentially becoming a back end service. I think this may illuminate. Where cloud gaming is headed. Existing storefronts and publishers continued to dominate but canal offer stream only games at a reduced cost to widen their audience. I can definitely see a future where you'll be able to by far christ sixteen on steam but there's now a forty dollars stream only version that lets you have the whole game but streamed at ten eighty p with the option unlock local play at an additional cost and quote in other words. Google play for its cloud business to be back end piping for the future of the entire gaming industry but at the same time. Can you trust google

The way we kind of have balanced those two identities very strongly And like my family also emigrated from kashmir basically at like a little bit before and during the the petition.

And i did islamic studies and that was To be honest it was the greatest blessing and it was the greatest blessing. Not because oh you know. You're studying islam except it was a blessing because Doing that masters program really kind of set the stage for i would say my approach to
"montreal" Discussed on The Big Story
"Hi thanks for having me no problem. Why don't you start by just telling me about kind of the the stereotype or the image that most Canadians have of rental units Montreal in the renting culture? There in General Yeah Montreal. Has this kind of permanent reputation as the place to go? If you WANNA live cheap in Canada it is known for having affordable rents All departments. You know those famous spiral staircases. You could live and be an artist or permanent student which a lot of people opt for musician writer. You know you could actually do what you WanNa do in your life and live reasonably well. That's that's kind of the impression people have and that's the impression that they've had for a long time but I don't think that that's necessarily true anymore. We'll tell me what's been happening You describe in your story of a woman named tenured wok so Tanna is just one of the many people who I spoke with for this article. Antennas story is about how a one day. Actually it was Christmas Eve. She was getting ready to be to go to her parents in the suburbs of Montreal for Christmas celebration and she got a knock on the door and it was her new landlords and they said You pay rent to us now and then she said Oh okay. I didn't realize a landlord was selling the building. Are you gonNa make any repairs to have a few things that I need repaired? And they're like actually we're going to repair the whole building. Emigre convert everything to AIRBNB. Kick everybody out. So that was the start of her. Long protracted battle which is still ongoing today and this is something that's happening to a lot of people throughout Montreal and actually throughout Canada. I would say and probably anywhere where you'd be exists so around the world so. When did this start to Happen Montreal? And why in particular in? Montreal what changed. It started getting pretty bad in Montreal around. I would say probably Twenty Sixteen. Twenty fifteen twenty sixteen is when people really started to notice the squeeze and I think there wasn't really a really noticeable. Change like there was nothing. There is no one thing that happened. That made this squeeze start tightening. It was more an accumulation factors. So one is that people started noticing. That AIRBNB was a pretty lucrative venture. And if you had the capital to invest in property Why wouldn't you just go ahead and do that? And then instead of renting to long term tenants just convert your rental units into short term rentals. So more and more people started to do that with property so that was one thing that happened. And then I you know over the next few years Quebec and and the rest of Canada speaking specifically about Montreal Allot of migrants came into Montreal people from war torn countries but also people from France Students people coming from other parts of Canada and the US coming to study. There are four major universities in Montreal. That have forty thousand students per school. There are a lot of young people that are you know transitory instead. There's just a lot of people coming in and out of Montreal and so that was one of the other factors and people immaterial. Who lived there for a long time? They were just kinda used to the deal. You know you have a July first to June thirtieth lease and if he decided to leave it historically. It hasn't been hard to find another apartment you can just look on. Pj gee-gee or craigslist or facebook now and just find a new place to live. But that's really changing and a lot of the people who I spoke with say that it's super competitive. There even overbidding on apartments just trying to find a decent place to live. That's not infested with bugs. Rodents And it's really tough out there for a lot of people and we've heard similar stories about you know overbidding or huge amounts of competition for places Here in Toronto. But I can't imagine what kind of crisis that must create an city where like almost everybody rents right so tell me a little bit more. I guess first of all about the traditional moving day because that's very unique to Montreal Quebec Wide Policy. But because Montreal is the biggest city and because as I mentioned earlier there so many students in Montreal in particular because so many of Quebec's migrants are located in Montreal. Montreal really is the nexus of moving day And so what moving day is is it happens around July first so it used to just be July first But now it's kind of like two weeks before in two weeks after July first and now it's spread even further than that as people get more and more desperate to find housing and basically it's the time when everybody moves so In previous recent years I would say I did a story for city lab last year where I got figures that said seventy thousand. Households moved like in one summer While so you know in but people are used to this dance you know. It's it's just baked into how people live Montreal. The reason why back has this policy is really just because at some point Maybe forty years ago. The Quebec government decided to have moving day and it was supposed to be like a temporary measure. You know it was supposed to be like a a suggestion. But then everyone was like well. Let's just keep a July? I make things easy so it just kind of became the defacto rule. So there's kind of a system in place for a culture that relies on renters and tenants and landlords moving around at a certain date And it's competing with a run on airbnb properties And this is something. We've seen lots of cities. But but what's happening now or what's going to happen in the next few months as Montreal grapples with Colvin Nineteen. Yeah well WHO KNOWS? Really? It's changing every day. It seems that The situation is pretty dire. You know people in Montreal are used to living pretty much paycheck to paycheck. There's a lot of service industry people in Montreal Metro so famous for its bars and restaurants but what happens when all those businesses have to close all those people are out of work and the government has promised assistance to those people? But it won't come by the first. So what are those people do to pay the rent and so there is a growing movement for Rent Strike? But it's not a ten versus landlord tight situation. What they're calling for. What the with these people behind the rent strike movements white sheets for the rent strike are calling for is to have tenants and landlords get together because they're both kind of screwed yeah like the government and banks have said okay. We're going to allow people to have mortgage deferrals but good luck. Finding anyone who's been successful in actually getting through to their bank to get a deferral especially if you're a landlord who has rental properties you know it's very difficult to actually get that deferral on time and so it's just kind of getting everybody together and saying like we just can't pay for housing right now if you want us to stay inside put your money where your mouth is and make a stay inside. Sure don't make us live in the situation where we kind of feel pressure to work regardless of You know what's happening with the pandemic in terms of housing There's the rent strike the other jurisdictions in people for example. I saw British Columbia. There's been a moratorium convictions. the government has an add some kind of rent support. There are different measures being put in place. But it doesn't seem like it's really enough For the actual situation with regards to what's happening with Airbnb as what a lot of people are doing or what I've seen on facebook groups where people have apartment listings and stuff like that. You can see like tons of fully furnished apartments suddenly up for rent. That you know are obviously airbnb. That people can't rent tourists because they have like really nice pictures in. They have pictures of like folded towels on the bed and tables set with dishes like pictures you would see on airbnb except there on rental groups now and the owners of these babies are so desperate to get any income they can't. They flipped their short term. Rentals back onto the long term rental market even just marketing them as sublets or temporary rentals. So they're not even promising to put them back on the long term rental market. They're just trying to fill the gap while the pandemic continues to ravage their investments so traditionally what options do tenants in Montreal and Quebec. Have to protect themselves from this kind of stuff. And and what's the government doing now because again you mentioned Policies against fictions NBC There's also one and Ontario. What are they doing given the fact that they have a higher percentage of renters than almost anywhere right so the rental tribunal has stopped listening to eviction hearings so people can't be evicted right now for not paying their rent in Quebec and So that's that's a positive for tenants but of course like no one likes to be in disagreement with their landlord. The stress will carry over into future minds senior relationship overall with your landlord. So that's not good. There's also the factor that because any lease is a contract between two individuals. The Quebec government can't override bad agreement and dictate terms to anybody. So what it singing and with the city of Montreal saying is it sure would be nice if you would give your tenants a break but you know it it. It just seems as though some landlords are more generous than others and the province and the city are really relying on the generosity of landlords to get renters through this. I mean I'm a layperson but that doesn't sound like a recipe for everybody. Getting what they need. No it's not. What should we be looking for in Montreal In the next few days and weeks then. Will we get a sense Now that it's April first Of How many people are taking part in the rent? Strike how widespread it is How many landlords are giving people a break? We're going to start seeing that anecdotally or is it big enough. That people will notice the white sheets for the rent strike movement. So what they're asking is that they want people who either can't afford their rent now or people who are just supporting people who can't afford their rent to hang a white sheet out of their window off the balcony at the front door. Whatever just a show of solidarity so anecdotally like if you're walking around in Montreal might be able to see that this movement has already spread. I don't know how big it is but you know there have been pictures online of people doing it as far as Chicago Los Angeles Either our talks of rent strikes across Canada You know in big cities and small communities to so we'll see you know people may have had enough savings to pay for April first. But who knows what's going to happen for me. I if this condemn it keeps getting worse. You know like people might still be having to stay at home for the entire month of April in then at that point their savings for most service industry people at least for most people living paycheck to paycheck. They're savings will be decimated at that point so I think April I will be an interesting task but by may first the crisis will be far more advanced and then my last question I guess is. Has Anybody been thinking about what happens if this last longer than than we think? I mean. We're being told three months six months etc and some places and what happens on moving day if if Montreal still under lockdown I don't know what will happen on moving day. I think governments are going to have to seriously consider how they're going to deal with property owners especially people who own rental properties because a mortgage deferral may still come with interest in it may affect your credit and they're not necessarily that easy to get and so people are really desperately looking for solutions. In Canada and Quebec have been really good about announcing all kinds of bailout measures for all kinds of different organizations businesses. Trudeau has announced You know keeping afloat. Small medium and large businesses seventy five percent of businesses will be able to keep people on payroll just because they don't want like huge massive unemployment. But what are they gonNA do for for? Renters like people still need a place to live in. His generous people may be in his understanding. Is People may be like people still need to pay their bills at some point. So you know we'll see as April goes on how the situation develops right now. It's kind of the beginning Because it is the first of April but as may first comes around it will be totally different ballgame. Thanks for explaining the situation of Montreal to us. Tracy.

"But. But. Let's look at the other reports, so let's take psychology far out of it as we can we know that. Like any other large city in the developed World Montreal has a ton of monitoring devices and systems in play. These things are on every day of the year twenty four hours a day seven days a week. They're supposed to Ping. When they see something now, and they're humans that for most of the time, if not all of the time are checking those systems and looking at and monitoring them. Yeah yes, so SOM experts check into power grits, and they said what about electromagnetic disturbances we know those can do screwy things, because keep in mind that Canada is one of the one of the country's that experience the world's strongest most recent coronal mass ejection right, which in the eighties through the place back into the dark age for a minute. But not for long right. Just unexepectedly shorted out grids, so they found one power failure, but it was. Like it was around. Eleven PM. So is after this thing would have been around because we're talking seven twenty. Seven twenty like ten ten or so. And then they checked operating records of communication networks radio stations redo operators television telephone circuits excuse me during the evening of November, seventh nineteen ninety, and they did not find any unusual amount of malfunction. Whatever this means that whatever it was was not at the very least was not interfering power grids, nor electromagnetic systems were things that could be affected by that well. That's I mean okay. This is a good piece of you. Know Knowledge to have not. It's probably not the electric grid, but another set of monitoring instruments would be radar which would pick up physical objects. Yes, especially in the airspace. That wasn't happening right? There were no UFO's detected or reported to be detected. Any case by airport radar systems the controller. A controller that was interviewed reported that for the twenty years. He's worked in the field at the same control tower. Know ufo's ever been reported according to him in a report a few days later, the phenomenon reported on Wednesday was caused by a light ray. We have another expert saying it's not physical She just light man. It's just a trick of the light. It's only the wind who is not the ghost of your dead lover so only the wind? All right. Let's get almost down to the end here because I want to just talk about one I think it is okay so if you want to see a more modern version of this and you're a fan of Less than stellar television. You can check out a show that the television channel Canal d made in two thousand seven, a reconstruction of this phenomenon in a series of theirs called mystery files the interviewed a lot of the witnesses Mainly? The witnesses who believe it was extraterrestrial. And and different people will note that a lot of the UFO policy websites that are convinced this was extraterrestrial origin will mainly sight this report. You can watch it on, Youtube I I.

These ice crystals were talking about clemmie sense because they would refracted and could split it off in different patterns and make it look like it's moving abnormally right. Yes, in Montreal. Isn't you know right near the equator or anything? It's getting up higher. Or north on in latitude, so you know. That potential is there.

Oh you know what? When you when you see Aurora borealis spinning all generally what color? NOT THE BEST I. Green is one of the prominent colors the is. Supposed to be blue. Greenish, it's green, okay. I'm sorry. No, no! But the green hue or the coloration, and some of those images that you're seeing high up above in that fog. Could. You know I could see that being Aurora borealis kinds of things, but then if you mix that in with maybe a bit of sunlight, being refracted and kind of bent over like that, you could get those light rays, because it really does look like tiny sons.

We just have to say there's not a there's not a water tight. Case of extraterrestrial visitation it does remain unidentified this craft this object this phenomenon and while it seemed to be a real physical object of some sort. There's no indication that it did something like you know. Disobeyed the laws of physics or generated any other abstract behavior no non human creatures plopped out and warned us about the danger of nuclear war or large scale pollution So far as we know maybe they missed that and the reporting and this leads those on the more skeptical end of course to relegate this to the land of mundane whether phenomenon and and then subsequent exaggeration which happens when people are panicking. So why do they say this? It all really goes back to the fog. Could this have been nothing more than spotlights reflecting off the clouds? You know again. The plasmon bonaventure is close to pretty tall buildings in downtown Montreal. At least one of those had active spotlights or construction but those things were and those things can be clipped off right you can. You can make a request to turn that stuff off but you can't tell everybody driving in a city to turn off their headlights at night. You know what I mean I would say spotlights even the ones that you'll see you used in just shot up into the air you know during a large event maybe a movie theater every once in a while a gentlemen's club the you'll will. You'll see exactly. They have a pretty specific shape that can be opened and closed. It's a lens but it expands at least slightly as it goes outward right correct. I say so. We're talking about lights that are just beamed up into the sky like that or you know reflections of some pretty high powered spotlight of any kind. I think it would look different than what we're seeing here. What we're seeing here is not something that I can rightly You know attribute any phenomenon that I've personally seen before but remember that doesn't take into account other kinds of lights Other shapes of you know lights go slights will of the West. I mean I can't completely you know move. I can't completely say it wasn't a reflection like that of some kind because there's some other weird stuff going on here particularly with the angle of viewing the thing but all of the evidence that I have been able to look at that you've been able to look at me and we'll look at is stuff that was captured in nineteen ninety. Yeah and that doesn't mean we. We can't fully trust what we're looking at. It just means the you know it's the how the resolution is going to be a little different. Let's film right unless it's actual film right. A couple of these pictures were film. the video quality of anything that was taken back then is going to be very low resolution. I would just say the technology maybe is not was not as sophisticated. Yes they own point. Yeah camera equipment of thirty years ago and Yes yes this should Schalken in shocks and people listening and weird some sout. Nineteen Ninety was almost thirty years ago. It's like a few November seventh nine hundred ninety s few months away from thirty years ago and technology It's such a breakneck pace. You're right Matt I would say you totally cannot trust that stuff. It's it's fuzzy. You know if we just depended on those photographs and that video. It's not surprising at all to rank anything inconclusive. Because even an actual craft like say a high altitude blimp if those existed in the time there be difficult to discern just given again that very low resolution. And then you know One thing it's tempting to say whether phenomenon because it appears to gently just sorta recede into the clouds like that gift or Jif of homer Simpson sinking back into the topiary but blimps could just is and it would look the same to an observer you know what I mean especially if the cloud cover is increasing because as cloud cover increases and moist moisture. I don't WanNa do that. Voice but moisture accumulates then it pushed. The clouds seemed to get lower right and heavier. So why I I'm just saying we can't based on the footage and we can't rule out either a solid object or whether phenomenon. The problem is again. It goes back to vantage point because people at the hotel the bonaventure to them. This looks like a solid object and some of them including police or are still convinced the state but people from other vantage points. They still saw something but they thought it was a weird reflection. You know like how you see lights in pools at night. Reflect Weird Weird ghost shadows from the water. Yeah and you know that could make sense to me. I'm just trying to figure out I'm trying to figure out how I feel about this guys. I'm imagining you know. The the holographic technology the Hologram technology that uses missed as as a medium. So you just shine light on the list and then you can have something. Three dimensional appear to be three dimensional. Like the pepper's ghost effect as in the haunted mansion at Disney sort of an older effects. I believe so. Yes Mirror as sort of an old school way of generating Hologram. I believe their updated version and a lot of IT GOES INTO YIELD PROJECT. Blue Beam by the way of projecting images onto cloud cover. Which is really like you said Ben just moisture at certain densities and as it's more dense you can get a more solid looking object in the cloud cover the fog as we're calling here does appear to be very very thick in that area in. I'm wondering if I just haven't seen that kind of technology at play yet. It could be something like that that I just don't have the reference point for totally. Yeah I mean I can completely understand that we also have We have a couple of different experts. Who weighed in both in the Montreal area and then just people study astronomy or you have to so on one. I'd like to bring your attention as Dr Robert La Fontaine who's a professor of astronomy at the University of Montreal. And he had I think he had the most even-handed initial response. Because again we have to remember like November seventh eighth through the ninth. People are saying all kinds of just wild outta pocket stuff about this. So here's what here's what. The astronomy professor says. People saw something they saw. Ufo Now the word ufo is unidentified flying object so they saw something in the sky. They couldn't identify. They saw phenomenon. Now remains to find an explanation. We haven't had time to find one yet. It takes a while we need to have observations. We need to collect a whole series of information together so far. Most of the investigations that are looking at the ufo phenomenon often take several days to find an explanation for decades that we have been dealing with ufo phenomena not only in Quebec but almost everywhere in the world until now none of these ufo phenomena has found its source in the presence of vessels from other planets all ufo phenomena have their explanation in natural phenomenon of meteorological origin or Aurora borealis type or artificial phenomena Sex out to dry way. He saying I'm not saying he can't be aliens but it would be the first frigging time ever. Let's also just the term. Ufo is so loaded people have so many associations with it from pop culture and sci fi and everything but what it really just means is a lack of an explanation and just because we're seeing something that doesn't have an explanation doesn't mean you can make the leap to it as this origins being somewhere outside of the known universe right. Yeah I got to see some really weird on personal level of several days. Maybe it was last week on read it. I was digging into something and someone quoted me saying that on on read it and who is like the most. I think it was the coolest thing to happen to me. That month Well this month's there's a new month never reject switched over bent but yeah we have to say that right every Every time we deal with. Ufo's we do have to. We do have to emphasize that. Because you're right. And all it has a has become a loaded term ever since the nineteen. What late forties maybe? Yeah that'll roswell well. Hey let's Can we go to the next person that stepped in because this person just is so skeptical of anything else like we're that was maybe even handed that we just heard from sure from the the professor? There he ever mark has next to grind. Oh Man Mark What is it Gelinas? He's a meteorologist with environment. Canada that's an organization and Secretary of the Montreal Astronomical Society. This dude was not having any of this. Oh Yeah you could just hear the scoff. Yeah what did he say? He said? He looked at the photographs. I and he said it looks like a phenomenon observed on many occasions especially when we work with projectors sometimes used in Meteorology. Okay no okay. Projectors used with meteorology I see the case built okay. All Right. Keep going okay. I'm picking up in down. I'm on board. And so he goes. Light is reflected by ice crystals or water droplets in the cloud so depending on the density of that cloud. If you like we just talked about. The beam might be several hundred meters thick and visible from a great distance. He further conjectured stuff like the race. Might come from an automobile because they have headlights headlights. My point at the sky or They might reflect towards the sky because buildings have windows and windows are reflected like. He's very much over this mark. You're saying okay. I'm first of all. He seen everything but on condescending which means I talked down to people I I'm just trying to imagine a car that is somehow positioned with its headlights for three dollars goal on a giant hill somewhere. It's just kind of sitting there shooting up because The thing the problem with the headlight argument is that these headlights were not be static right so will they be moving but also there are no laser headlights. You know they could shoot all the way up into their and then reflects down in those raise that we're observing. Maybe I'm wrong mark. Maybe maybe you're right. I just I don't see that. But Okay Lo aim to you ben but it it's true and then and then he points out the spotlight stuff and he points out that light beams come from shopping centers. He's basically the whole time is going you guys lights. You have lights. They're everywhere everywhere Montreal. We're almost in the twenty first century the reflective surfaces everywhere the clouds in the ice crystals come on. Man. And it's interesting because you see other astronomy societies of the time There was one quote. ailment dig through dig through the notes. But there's there's one quote From someone who seems a little bit offended by this This claim that's that's an alien rector terrestrial UFO and then says oh it's a dominic larose Dominic larose I believe is the man who said you know what in my organization a lot of us came to it because we realized that quote Unquote Alien. Ufo's don't exist so it's weird when you get into this kind of debate because science has the the lion's share of attention in these concept or said in these conversations and it should but there's also some psychology and they're involved in there there's some grudges being held like when we learned some of the weird behind the Behind the curtain. Business going on with mathon which was frankly surprised. And you had nothing to do with aliens Maybe that's a conspiracy For another day but but let's look at the other reports so let's take psychology is far out of it as we can We know that like any other large city in the developed World Montreal has a ton of monitoring devices and systems in play. These things are on every day of the year. Twenty four hours a day seven days a week. They're supposed to ping when they see something now and they're humans that for most of the time if not all of the time are checking those systems and looking at and Monitoring Them. Yeah yes so Som experts check into power grits. And they said what about electromagnetic disturbances? We know. Those can do screwy things because keep in mind. That Canada is one of the one of the country's that experience The world's strongest most recent coronal mass ejection right which in the eighties through the place. Back into the dark age for a minute but not for long right Unexpectedly shorted out grids. So they found one power failure but it was like it was around eleven. Pm So is after this thing would have been around because we're talking seven twenty seven twenty like ten ten or so and then they checked operating records of communication networks radio stations radio operators television telephone.

"If I just haven't seen that kind of technology at play yet. It could be something like that that I just don't have the reference point for. Totally? Yeah, I mean I can completely understand that. We also have We have a couple of different experts who weighed in both in the Montreal area, and then just people, study, astronomy or you have. To so on. One I'd like to bring your attention as Dr Robert La Fontaine. WHO's a professor of astronomy at the University of Montreal? And he had I think he had the most even-handed initial response because again. We have to remember like November seventh eighth through the ninth. People are saying all kinds of just wild out-of-pocket pocket stuff about this. So here's what here's what the astronomy professor says. People saw something they saw ufo now the word ufo is identified flying object, so they saw something in the sky. They couldn't identify they saw. Phenomenon now remains to find an explanation. We haven't had time to find one yet. It takes a while. We need to have observations.

It I was digging into something and. Someone quoted me saying that on on read it and who is like the most? I think it was the coolest thing to happen to me that month. well this month. There's a new month never a switched over bent, but yeah, we have to say that right every every time we deal with UFO's we do have to. We do have to emphasize that because you're right. It has a has become a loaded term ever since the nineteen what? Late forties maybe. Yeah that'll roswell well. Hey, let's I. can we go to the next? person that stepped in because this person. Just is so skeptical of anything else like we're. That was maybe even handed that we just heard from sure from the the professor there a mark has next to grind Oh man, mark What is it Gelinas? He's a meteorologist with environment. Canada that's an organization and Secretary of the Montreal Astronomical Society. This dude was not having any of this. No, yeah, you could just hear the. Scoff. Yeah what did he say he said? He looked at the photographs I. And he said. It looks like a phenomenon observed on many occasions especially when we work with projectors sometimes used in meteorology. Okay okay. Projectors used with meteorology I see the case built. Okay, all right, keep going okay. I'm picking up in down I'm on board and so he goes. Light is reflected by ICE, crystals or water droplets in the cloud. So depending on the density of that cloud if you like, we just talked about. The beam might be several hundred meters, thick and visible from a great distance. He further conjectured.

Maybe maybe you're right I just I. Don't see that, but okay Lo. Aim To you, Ben. But it's true and then. And then he points out the spotlight stuff and he points out that light beams come from shopping centers. He's basically the whole time is going you guys. Lights, you have lights. They're everywhere everywhere, Montreal we're almost in the twenty first century. The reflective surfaces everywhere the clouds in the ice crystals come on man, and it's interesting because you see other astronomy societies of the time There was one quote ailment. Dig through dig through notes, but there's there's one quote from. Someone. Who seems a little bit offended by this This claim that's. That's an alien rex terrestrial ufo. And then says. Oh, it's a dominic larose. Dominic! Larose I believe is the man who said you know. What in my organization? A lot of us came to it because we realized that quote Unquote Alien ufo's don't exist so. It's weird when you get into. This kind of debate because. Science Has the the lion's share of attention in these concept, or said in these conversations, and it should, but there's also some psychology in. They're involved in there. There's some grudges being held like when we learned some of the weird behind the behind the curtain business, going on with Mathon, which was frankly surprised, and you had nothing to do with aliens Maybe that's a conspiracy for another day, but. But. Let's look at the other reports, so let's take psychology far out of it as we can we know that. Like any other large.

"I got no well. Let me tell you this thing. Whatever it was was definitely. Unidentified. Yeah you better. Unfortunately for all the true believers out there, there does not seem to be again. We just have to say there's not a there's not a water tight case of extraterrestrial visitation. It does remain unidentified this craft this object this phenomenon, and while it seemed to be a real physical object of some sort. There's no indication that it did something like you know disobeyed the laws of.

You can make a request to turn that stuff off, but you can't tell everybody driving in a city to turn off their headlights at night. You know what I mean. I would say spotlights.

All of the evidence that I have been able to look at that. You've been able to look at me and we'll look at is stuff that was captured in nineteen ninety. Yeah, and that doesn't mean. We, we can't fully trust what we're looking at. It just means the you know. It's the how the resolution is going to be a little different less film right unless it's actual film right? A couple of these pictures were film The video quality of anything that was taken back then is going to be very low resolution. I would just say the technology maybe is not was not as sophisticated.

It's like a few November seventh nine hundred ninety s few months away from. Thirty years ago and technology It's such a breakneck pace. You're right Matt I. would say you totally cannot trust that stuff it's it's fuzzy. You know if we just depended on those photographs and that video. It's not surprising at all to rank anything inconclusive, because even an actual craft like say a high altitude blimp, if those existed in the time, there be difficult to discern just given again that very low resolution, and then you know one thing, it's tempting to say whether phenomenon because it appears to gently just sorta recede into the clouds like that Gif or Jif of homer Simpson, sinking back into the topiary. But blimps could just is, and it would look the same to an observer. You know what I mean. Especially, if the cloud cover is increasing because as cloud, cover, increases and moist moisture, I don't WanNa do that voice, but moisture accumulates. Then it pushed. The clouds seemed to get lower right and heavier, so why I I'm just saying we can't based on the footage and we can't rule out either a solid object or whether phenomenon. The problem is. Again it goes back to vantage point. Because People at the hotel, the bonaventure to them this looks like a solid object and some of the including police, or are still convinced the state, but people from other vantage points. They still saw something, but they thought it was a weird reflection. You know like how you see lights in pools at night reflect weird. Weird ghost shadows from the water. Yeah, and you know that. Could make sense to me. I'm just trying to figure out. I'm trying to figure out how I feel about this guys I'm imagining you know the. The holographic technology the Hologram technology that uses missed as as a medium, so you just shine light on the list, and then you can have something three dimensional appear to be three dimensional pepper's ghost effect as in the haunted mansion at Disney sort of an older effects I believe so yes. Mirror as sort of an old school way of generating Hologram I believe their updated version. And a lot of it goes into yield project blue beam by the way. Of Projecting images onto cloud cover, which is really like you said Ben just moisture at certain densities, and as it's more dense, you can get a solid looking object. In the cloud, cover the fog. As we're calling here. Does appear to be very very thick in that area in I'm wondering. If I just haven't seen that kind of technology at play yet. It could be something like that that I just don't have.

Terrorist wasn't just in this building. It was over a huge city. And there were people viewing this thing all over the place all across the city because it was just an unnerving thing to observe. Yeah and ends one thing they had in common. Is that they all? They all pointed out an unequal distribution of light. It seemed heavier on one side than another pan there were were they were hanging out. And, this was a densely populated city. There's something in the air and it's a real thing than people see if that is if it's a solid object, and it's line of sight, but if it's a meteorological phenomenon, or if it's a trick of the light. Than people looking from the opposite direction might not see anything at all. Just how that stuff works, right, it's true. But you gotTA. Take into account that cloud cover in the distance from the clouds that we were unable to really discern ripe, and there was no change in its movements. No real change in size the fact that it was visible for so long is interesting, not just because it allowed more people to see it, but because it allowed them to time to observe it increasingly sophisticated and professional ways one. Oh, okay, so one of the first things people would talk. About would be the The idea that it's light. There's just like we can dive into that later. Might as well you know people back in the nineteen nineties were not any less or more intelligent than people in twenty twenty. They thought of that too The the actually turned off. Some nearby. floodlights are construction lights to see if that did anything and no this mysterious Montreal ufo still hung there, and this leads researchers like Bernard gone yet and ex NASA scientist. Dr Richard Haynes to argue that there definitely was something up there, meaning a solid object of some sort. They said we can't trace the source of it. Can't tell you what it was, but we believe it was something reports pretty exhaustive. It's like twenty five pages long and the. You know the climactic moments. Their report is when they say quote. The existence of a highly unusual hovering silent large object is indisputable Nia. Yeah it really is big, too. You're right on with the twenty five page report, and it's you know they don't well. Maybe we won't spoil it now. If whether or not, they actually say exactly what it is. Oh yeah, Hey, you know what? Let's let's get to that. Let's answer the question. Let's answer. The ghostly yellow lit elephant, hovering above the room of the hotel. Here what? On Earth were offered was this we'll tell you after word from.

"That. His aircraft is passing near these light beams and. It doesn't run into anything. It flies through the sky uninterrupted. Thank goodness, right and this led police to say well okay. Whatever this thing is! This object is much higher in elevation than we thought. And so the journalists says okay. The altitude this plane might be around three hundred and seventy meters. That's what I thought I? But then there was near Canada pilot on the hotel roof. WHO said no? No, no, no, no, no way man. You write the reports. I'll do the I'll do. The allegation estimates because I fly planes and that thing is I. Assure you my friend. Twenty, five hundred between twenty, five, hundred and three thousand meters, so that's almost ten thousand feet in the air so that we have to like how huge that thing distill look big from that distance is saying. So, of course in interviews, which you can still find online, there are multiple witnesses were certain. This was an alien or extraterrestrial craft, including some members of the police force, which was surprising to me. There was an interview with one fifteen years later, said, nope, never saw anything like it. Not of earthly origin you can also, you can also find some reports that detail. will you can find the entirety of the police report in French and you can translate it It includes. The police forces own statements, but the includes drawings little drawings like this from the witness, yesterday's look like circles with the lines of light coming out. Yeah, so where the light was in position and then wear that light rail essentially was observed. The lights are all like what Yellowish Green I guess. Yeah, it's it's. It's very yellow. To My I, at least with that kind of green, I don't almost shading in there and I'm honestly not being there. In one thousand, nine hundred I don't know what kind of light pollution is existing in that area of Montreal to you know color, the clouds which occurs in any major metropolitan area, but It looks oddly Yellow Green. Right, that's correct and will will figure out exactly what that means. As as we continue now, who Matt you alluded to earlier about what made this citing different and we have, we have several. Features that distinguish it from the majority of sightings, but yeah, the the the first one I think is what we already talked about just the number of witnesses who were there. Who who? Weren't just some. This is awful to say. But it wasn't just some farmer, or you know some a single person or a single family in a rural area to people in a truck. Yeah it, and that's not to cast aspersions on anyone who would fit that description just means there are multiple people there multiple. Many of them are authority figures when you would consider to be an authority figure when it comes to. Let's say any aircraft that's going to be in the sky in in a controlled airspace and there were also you know there's a funny story. One of the witnesses said the hotel I think she was. She was added wedding, or she was attending a wedding. Choose having dinner, basically seventy fancy dinner and they heard about this, and so she finished her soup as she goes stairs of the for awhile she goes back in. She'd Salad. She goes to check if it's still out there and like her account to the police is just her taking breaks in between watching ufo to to eat, but yeah. It wasn't just on. This.

The existence of a highly unusual hovering silent large object is indisputable Nia. Yeah it really is big, too. You're right on with the twenty five page report, and it's you know they don't well. Maybe we won't spoil it now. If whether or not, they actually say exactly what it is. Oh yeah, Hey, you know what? Let's let's get to that. Let's answer the question. Let's answer.

"To every episode, but hope you're particularly tuned into this one. Here's what you said. Brian said Hey guys I've been binging. binging on the show all summer, and after listening to the candidates Roswell episode I remember that my dad told me about a very famous incident here in Montreal back in nineteen ninety that he remembered seeing on the local news so far I have not heard any of your episodes mentioned it and Brian. You are correct by friends, fellow conspiracy realists, but is something we are going to correct for ourselves today in this episode Montreal Nineteen Ninety. There was something weird in the sky. It's true. And we'll. We'll get to the crazy parts of this, but but first let's let's start with the facts, Montreal. What is you know it's in Canada right, but what else? It's a band I like that's of module. That's right. That's right there actually on tour right now. Our mutual friend and my roommate an lifelong pal frank Recently went to Montreal and said it was a delightful Cornucopia of delicious foods and arts and very clean, and the the metro system was very clean, and he had a wonderful time. He said it is the second largest city right in Canada. At least when you're talking about population, which is Kinda. Cool, right? It takes up about three fourths of Montreal. It's an it's an older city at least as far as this continent goes. Colonial history dates back into the sixteenth century, it started as a missionary settlement of course like every other European based American city. There were plenty of people living there beforehand, but anyway Europeans come it becomes a missionary settlement, and there was plenty of money to be made in religion, but they also realize they could make a another ton of money. If they got into the for trait, so Montreal became a hub of the for trappers would traveled to from acquiring pelts, and then they will return there to sell and ship them. As for the character of Montreal, as in in days of your, and in the Modern Day, the best way to say it is that if you traveling to Montreal. Or Quebec in general from the US, the first thing you'll notice is that it is very very. Very, French, yes, and again goes back to its history, but also right now we're talking about twenty twenty, the majority of Montreal's population French Canadian. They would identifies french-canadian, and while you hear, some people in Montreal is the second largest French speaking city in the world, and of course after Paris, in France That's a bit of a dodgy statement, right? There's other places that might actually meet that young can CHASA AL jeers they're both populous in their own right and They're also probably growing more quickly in terms of birth rate, and maybe well once Montreal was known for exporting fine pelts and furs in the late nineties. Kinda got reputation for exporting some fine musical bands such as the UNICORNS. The Arcade Fire Wolf Parade. Leonard Cohen is from Montreal. A lot of great bands Tim Hecker more drone kind of thing. The best nerd lakes the dears. I was huge in the Montreal music scene back in the late nineties and still am today. I'm very much. But all in all Montreal is a is a beautiful place. It's full of history. It's full of culture. It's considered one of the most cosmopolitan hey, a European cities on the entirety of the North American continent. However, it's also known for something else Oh. Yes, been like a lot of large metropolitan cities, there are strange lights in the sky above Montreal strange lights that. May Not come from any human origin. Or, maybe some kind of secret government experience, but in the end they're unidentified. They're flying and their objects and that makes them. UFO's. Objectively speaking! What are we talking about will tell you afterward from our sponsor. Is. This episode of stuff they don't want you to know is brought to you by Roman. Talking about erectile dysfunction isn't easy. Usually people just brush it off or blame themselves. Saying things like I lost my Mojo yeah I just wasn't feeling it tonight. Honey or you know. I had a long day at work whatever feels like excuses, but with Roman it's an easy talk to have with a real doctor who could prescribe real medication..

That's a baby. What else did we learn so with the community of people who like to be spanked prefer to themselves as spank owes spe goes? Isn't that cute spank. OHS sounds like a really good morning cereal I I wasn't I wasn't observing and I think we may have had more people join us since our initial game. This guy are use Banco. You can stay you can stay okay so the name of the game was getting back in here with the people as Pegos spank what the fuck did. I just walk into okay. I like to be spanked to. It's okay my friend okay. We like it. We all the people the spanking though I don't know bankers bankers bankers always spank spank goes. I'm just GONNA put this out there. SPANKY SPANKY spanky would be getting the spank employee employer the other. I think we we learn and actually you might be able to speak better to this the me because I was I I I was a little loss spoke to a guy named James Cantor. He's a sex therapists very like well established sex therapist based in Toronto and we were talking about the five year itch they they were no that term the five year which well it's called the seven year itch concerning the seven year itch which is like essentially yet you couple up seven years later whether it's the male of the family they typically stereotypically. It's like the man gets the seven year itch and he's like I'm now like you know Dad's now looking for the mistress and like going off doing his own thing well James Cantor referred to that as actually technically thickly biologically. It's it's more so the five year itch because I wish you didn't bring this up because I I really don't understand Santa well either but tensely in essentially it's the the the length of time it takes to locate a mate court that made eight impregnate that mate and raise a baby to the point of it no longer needing nursing that that's the actual technical length of time time that is is like developmentally part of our of our brain so what's what's the kids grow up and good to go then biologically man's like all right time time to go do the same thing to somebody else to procreate and create another individual that thing too that he touched on and maybe this was off the microphone was like it's not it's also just as biologically sound and intuitive for women to have sex with many many men to provide vied for to make sure that the youth or the being that they bring into being as provided for so like they're they're in sometimes there it was it was quite plausible that that multiple men could be the degree the producer of the same baby which is probably scientifically debunked by now but at one time it was like even if you're pregnant keep having sex with men because their genes will the genes will affect the the baby be they bring a day so needless to say the last like five say but we just talked about it for twenty five straight up the last like six days five days whatever it's been have been like I opening for the two of us. I feel like I've learned a lot. I've learned a lot too and I- endlessly endlessly Yeah Melissa curious so and so that's again you know for the people that are just joining us because I know we've got a bunch of people just walk in the streets and coming in and going plundering combined listening to you. If you have sex you should definitely pay attention. This is the stuff that we talk about and so a big part of the shows you know we talked about our own sexual lives again. We're married but we live we we are poly-amorous so we see which means for people who don't understand what that is we we are not closed off to the idea of having having whether it be sexual or emotional relationships with other people in our lives. Brian has a boyfriend back home. I have a girlfriend back come. We we have partners multiple partners and that's a big part of her life speaking of that I there's there's something this I haven't talked to you about this yet and I was kind of saving it for a recording and I figure fuck it. Whatever we're Montreal? Maybe I can get some some some thoughts from the people that are listening but I went on a date last week and it it it was like there's a little bit of a predicament in that. I don't really know what to do now like I don't know like how to take this further but essentially what happened was I went on a date with someone that I met on tinder or bumble or something like that not that I should know I should know and do all right before I go into this. Do you feel like I have type. I have no oh idea okay great. I'm glad you said that because while I was on this date in my head I was like really smart women. Yeah I can tell you for sure. One hundred percent the hey smarter in the is going on the WHO who's build smart tonight so I met this really smart lady on Tinder and we went on a date and while we were on the day and I was thinking to myself the reason I ask because I was thinking to myself Bridie ah or BECCA would both probably go this is not this Gal is not your type but we had a very like lovely the evening the conversation flow very nicely. She's a she's a law student and very like she is actually extremely smart. We're on the date and I was going going holy. Fuck them stupid. You know like the whole time but she's very beautiful very smart very engaged. The date was going very well. So we go back to my plane. Our place you were not there and we were having some drinks drinks led to you know make an out making out led to fooling around. We didn't have sex. This was a gal who as far as I could tell was like I don't have sex on the first date now whether she was just saying that to me because she wanted to say that to me. I don't I don't know but we weren't going to have sex but we did. We did do everything else under the under the umbrella of like Nick falling around and I felt really good about it and I was like yeah. This went really well now. Here's the thing pretext to that day. It was a day where are the night before. I partied a little too hard woke up a little too long over had a really big event that I was taking taking part in and Halifax and it was a yoga events. I've been we we both teach yoga teaching for a number of years and so I was leading a yoga class and I didn't anticipate how sweaty Reti this class was going to be. I got very hot very sweaty. You're at the class. It was with Lori Brown. The Yoga sick boy class and afterwards I went home cleaned up but didn't take like I took a shower but like I took this is one of the cleanest menu of ever seen. I just want you to know that see the cleans very thoroughly so this is why this day this is why the story is going to surprise you talking to you who aren't sure if you're GONNA stay for the rest of the conversation right so I took a shower but like I did the shower I was like I'm GonNa date tonight. So I literally like ran my head through the water to alike do my hair and then washed the shit out of my deck and my bottle that was it popped out shower went on the date unwell came home hooked up she went home. I drove her home now. Drove her home and as I I dropped her off Becca. My girlfriend texted me and was like hey we're all at this bar in Halifax facts.

"You WANNA talk about sex comes it down who's into sex or just keep walking legs having sex to have sex all the time. This is the podcast for you. Hoes look there smiling they do have. Are you guys on your way to have right now. Maybe keep going just go have sex. That's coming up some things we WANNA talk to you about all right well. We don't have our intro music. This is a bit of a weird interest so let's let's talk about sex commands it down. Let's pretend the music's enough sacks. Come on this guy this guy down you guys. Maybe you've definitely had sex police once. We're we'RE GONNA talk about sex. It's fine that babies too young to know or no. We're talking about. Okay you to hide behind me to their you your behind bleachers. You've you know all about it occurred. Let's say okay. Let's assume that the music's plan ext getting to know you getting to know how about you baby. I Lo- my love or you talk about some sex yeah yeah I only recently realized how sexual the lyrics of that classic Julie Andrews Song Are. I don't know who Julie Andrews is. The sound of music wait like the the music in that later but yeah wait hold on. I don't know if she wrote it but she definitely sang it. I hate musicals hunting it my way but nicely definitely she knows what's up a that could be that could be sexual depending on the person and that the song is getting to know you suck name that this game is based off of you got a game there. I have a game has has ready for the hold on Jesus. Christ can't hear you slow down. Slow down. Slow down slow down. Sometimes I get really excited. I know I can tell you very that's okay but here's the thing we're doing a live show. Let's introduce what's happening right now because there's some people here sitting and they they know what I mean they sell them. You know what the fuck is going on. Some of them might not know what's going on. I hold it first question. I love getting to know you is have you learnt. Have you listened to. I heard you I what's his podcast called. Turn me on podcast. Couple people have not heard our podcast okay great okay. That's what I thought everybody a little introduction. My name is Jeremy. Saunders name is Brian Mcclain and together. We are the duo behind Termi on podcast and variety center so so excited why don't you why don't you take the reins and explain to people what what turned me on so turn me on was born because we we have a deep curiosity about talking to people about what it's like to be a human being who is a sexual being so someone who has sex or doesn't have sex but this is all a part of our biology and so maybe let's interested in to talk about that led. Maybe it's interesting to to dive into those subjects. That's a good point. I mean the fact that none of us would be here if it weren't for the act of sex is kind of what makes this podcast interesting and also the fact that really a lot of people don't want us to talk about it is also interesting. Let's also very interesting. Eh a big portion of the world I mean maybe let's keep it to this country that we live in. We're all about exploiting it and our and our sexuality be for advertising purposes but when we actually want to get down to business and talk about like what's pleasurable and do we deserve pleasure then we don't we don't we don't really ever want to give that that subject the time of day at least that's what I found from during this podcast is like we do it but we don't. We don't really want to acknowledge it so that's where we come in but that's also we're for all of all of you. Come in We're GONNA sit here for the next hour and a bit. Maybe an hour and a half who knows and talk about sexuality. Yeah probably like an hour for those of you who are like I'm conscious. Well what why don't we kick it off. We do live shows around the country and and this is our first time ever doing a live show here in the beautiful city of Montreal but when we do these live shows we like I get the audience a little bit involved and so we have a little game that we like to kick off with just that you know we're up here talking about our sex alive and talking about sex in general so we figured why not get you involved and get to know you a little bit more because if you do listen to the show if you do listen to the show back here you know that you probably know a little bit more about us as sexual beings than you would know about I would say like most the people in your fucking life so so why don't we get to know the audience here and play this little game that you liked to call. What do you call it? I call it stand up. Sit Down but let's let's send some of you are already standing. Let's call raise your hand and put it down a fuck that stand up sit down. If you're standing up. You're not sitting. Raise your hand. If if you're standing up you should sit down otherwise the game doesn't quite work down so basically ugly the way this game works is. I'm going to read some statements if they're true for you. You'RE GONNA stand up if they're not true for you. You'll remain seated. Let's test it out albeit subject okay so okay so this is how the game works. My name is Jeremy. I have a podcast called Hermione. I have a podcast has called sick boy podcast. I have three nipples. I understand the game I have tattoos see we're going to start off pretty green was young. I have tattoos that I regret okay. Yes I wax my butt crack almost set up. You could just do a do have you tax you but before you have no care I consider myself kinky there. We go all right. I consider myself Vanilla Ella. There's no bad there's no. There's no judgment here. I'm in a relationship. Yes Sir all right. I'm in I'm in a consensual non on monogamous relationship her there we go I like to be spanked. I like to have my nipples pinched. GotTa gotTa keep standing My favorite position is doggy style. You've been standing for a long time I would be I would be naked all day. If I could yeah yeah okay I masturbate daily. Yes I masturbate too much is that is that a is that a question I have a sex story that that would blow your mind. way way way back traders. Come on and spectators hold on. What was the last question I have a sex story? That would blow blow your mind. That's true stand up of this year. I go one two three four okay. All right is wide open over here. I I'm great a dirty sock. Teach me your ways feel pretty good about it. I feel good about it I'm a virgin no standards. You're standing. You're you know what you say. There was a joke Innis to it. Are you actually a virgin really yes. Fuck Jeff owning that on that. I okay I like poppers. I even know what those are love boppers. I have or would pay for porn. Yeah Yeah Okay. I have a sex toy. Yep Okay okay well. Aj did you say who doesn't doesn't look around there's not about everybody has a second year not standing okay I have been tested for Sdi's in the last month that's an honorable reason to stand. I shouldn't sit shouldn't sit. I have named my Genitalia. Hold on for just come down here for a moment. Just come down here for a moment. What what have you named Your Genitalia Bunny Bonny?

We're never going to be invited back to Montreal again. You're not being child sex trafficked. Are you okay. Uh Okay. I've had an affair I have been affected by unfair interesting. This is looking around. Let's get an interesting more people stood up and sat down but maybe that's because fifty percent of marriages end in divorce strew. We talk a lot about that okay. This is the end of the game and this is kind of a hard conversation hard hard question to end on a more serious questions. You're if you play the game. Give yourselves around of applause. If you felt pretty honest theirselves there what yeah it's really good to just get it off your chest and and be honest about it because honestly a lot of people aren't talking on sit down you didn't you weren't present for most of the game so the way the game goes as you stand up the statement. It is true for you. You remain seated if it's not I'll give you one question. Since you're late I like to have my butthole licked the majority of people you can thank you Montreal. You freaky motherfucker yeah all right I mean let's just get that out of the way first. Thing is pretty fun. Yeah I agree. I I gotta say this. It feels pretty damn exciting to be here. Montreal I will I will say this. One of the big big reasons why I feel pretty elated to be here. Is that Montreal you know not much. Elba Quebec itself plays a very large role in my own like like upbringing my own like sexual exploration sexual evolution because I remember the very first time I ever made myself come was from something something that came straight out of Quebec which is called blue new. We and I don't know if I don't know if this is like it might not resonate as much the people sitting here but for outside of Quebec Blue New e is a life changing events. I stayed up up for hours. Do I remember it from like you know when you watch TV and the signals coming in so it's just like constantly like uploading on television and what's happening here yeah that weird sort of like Glitz note fucking thing and you're like you know maybe now not so much but so so my thanks to you Quebec for allowing myself to get up off to some softcore porn you guys do softcore porn probably better than anybody else in Canada but also I feel like Quebec's at least Montreal seems to be pretty like sexually liberated city. There's something very I think we talked about this before. There's something very like yet the something very European the in about it and by that I mean in European countries seem to be much more sexually open than like western Western countries are or North American countries or cities what have you. I think that's our perception that I don't know if it's true. We're not from here so we don't know but that that is the perception were where are we filmed for. The people that don't back said Nova Scotia or Prince Island Nova Scotia and and I went to university here and I also feel the same way like Montreal was the first place I.
"montreal" Discussed on The Big Story
"Rivers really people don't realize it. It was the Montreal Expos were not the first baseball team and much clearly the Montreal royals, but there is a real in areas outside Montreal there. There is a real baseball has really really deep roots. And I've gotta think those probably gone away a little bit as a result of the Expos leaving town. But there's still I think that underlying sense of there's still enough people around who remember the Expos when they were really good who remember the excitement and Montreal to Montreal's, great one off city. It's a great event city. And I think if you can get if you could build a really sexy ballpark, which and. Knowing the people involved in this when the ballparks built it will be top notch. If you can build that. It's got great access to mass transit were thinking of putting it there's going to be subway line extension to that area. I think people in Montreal will come back. There are so many things lining up for this ownership group right now that the only way it gets screwed up is if somebody makes a misstep politically, and I don't think either of these guys will do it. Little known fact, Expos TV and radio ratings swamped Canadians radio and TV ratings even up to their last year in Montreal. Really? Absolutely. It's it's a little known fact, but the the ratings, especially French language broadcasts, really strong. I just want to throw that out there. That's that is surprising. I think counterintuitive be I was just going to say that. I I spent a lot of time in Montreal growing up. I remember going to Expos games in the late eighties and early nineties when the stars were aligned and they were. A great team and the big O was packed. It was very smoky. But it was packed. And I remember going there in the later part of the ninety s when there was nobody there. I think we've all seen anybody who follows baseball in this country of kind of seen fans come out when the Blue Jays are there for a couple of games. How does that get sustained? How does the buzz not go away the way it did in the mid to late nineties? I think the fact that the playing field for talent and baseball, it's an I don't mean to use that as a I mean to be cute there as a pun the playing field has been sort of leveled out a little bit in baseball. Now, we're the game itself is going through a real profound economic shift in terms of how players are paid. It's a different time. Now, the Yankees and Red Sox don't get everybody as salaries fall and the percentage of revenue players get has decreased in recent years as Sally. Kinda come in line. The door's been opened for almost every team if especially with analytics now the doors opened for every team any team that's smart to build a winner very quickly. I mean, Houston Astros were awful for a number of years. Now, the they may not be beaten for for a long time. So it's a different game the different revenue. Streams again, not dependent on packing the place every night. I mean, you've got to be an idiot to lose money in baseball. Right. I mean, you affectively make money the second the game starts, and I as I said, I mean, I think we're getting to a point where attendance is just attendance will be the cherry in the top. You will you will make all the money. You need is a baseball owner. And if you get forty thousand people at the ballpark. That's great. That's just added revenue if you get ten thousand people the ballpark doesn't matter because you're still making all the money in the world. Tell me about the group of Expos fans that never gave up hope. Oh god. I mean, I think I had block about half of them in Twitter because every time I'd write something even even mildly negative. You know, it'd be I'd be swamped up. I mean, there is a Warren commodities kind of the godfather of. Of this group. He was a much beloved Montreal Expos player. The crow is he's called love. Montreal is up there on the crow loved the lot about Montreal. Shall we say not just the baseball? He he's kind of an and he was a guy for the longest time who would keep talking up Montreal be pain in the ass. 'cause you don't wanna go crow. It's just not happening. Find something else to hit your wagon to this. This isn't gonna work. But there was there was there's a core of baseball fans. People Jona Kerry who will know it does work sports net the athletic. He's he's a well known Piedra book about the book about the Expos. Exactly. It's almost as if and I was thinking about this the other day because a friend of mine Marty noble covered the Mets passed away. The highlights of his career were coming Marty loved Montreal. That was the highlight of his career was coming to mucho people around the game writers media Awada people who sort of create a lot of the churn around the day loved mucho. There's a real romance attached to the Expos, and I think. Probably would kept things going was the romantic attachment people felt that that came to the ninety four team. Maybe the all the best team to never win a World Series because of the players strike. There's kind of a lower legend a myth romance around the Montreal Expos almost like a ghost team, and people have always hung onto that you know, you go to go to game in any ballpark. You'll see folks and Expos Gers am I remember covering a World Series game, Detroit, and San Francisco and San Francisco there were rove guys wearing posters. I mean. It's just there there there. It's almost like a diaspora. There are a lot of people who want baseball to return to much real. And a lot of them wanted to return to much because of that romantic attachment.
