"Our American stories and up next, a story from Tyler granted all of Grand Rapids, Michigan. Tyler has one of the most interesting side gigs I've ever heard of. He's an onion ring reviewer.

It's not just a hobby. It's it's sort of a mission. You could do it with any food in theory, I guess, but I don't think it would work with all thumb like french fries or hamburgers for every reason in the onion rings have that potential for greatness.

Nine, ninety, nine at whole foods. I. Think it's exclusive whole foods they sell elsewhere in the world but in the United States, it's whole foods. and. It's if you like. You'RE GONNA. Like this wine. It's made in the same way that tank from Tation Shar map. Large pressurized bats the pressure when the CO two was released the second fermentation.

That's all you need to know really the light refreshing ten buckle foods sparkling wine from. Italy. And you know what they are thinking about, which may or may not make much difference at all. Why is it a sparkling wine? In Italy, the word for sparkling wine is full monty. You know this is a smart I mean for Seco- Samante Champagnes? Format. It just means sparkling wine doesn't mean anything. But I think one of the problems is that. In most Americans when they think about sparkling wine, they think about. Those sweet inexpensive ones from the Asti region which sold like crazy for a long long time. I think they still do. Okay. But the cattle got. You know the kind of Societas with an expensive nat maybe that grape wine, there's been a few scandals there won't get into. This cheap wine fighter.

When will the unwanted robocalls stop
"I'm curious. If you've noticed any improvement in spam calls, Robo calls all of that. Supposedly, it's been taking care of. And I think it kind of has now get ready because the silly season is upon us. You may remember a couple of years ago and four years ago six years ago when. you know all the campaigns spun up. And you would get calls every day from the political campaigns and so forth. I think. My guess is at least it's been my experience of curious if it's yours, they're not calling as much as they are texting. Now I get texts like crazy tons of texts. all the time many of them panicky. Money, we're running out of money got to send US money a lot of that. You can only laugh there's no as far as a way to block text I guess you could say stop. The FCC has implemented this technology called stir and shaken, which sounds like a james bond recipe for Martinez is in fact. What they call a caller ID authentication protocol. And They have till June, thirtieth the next year to to implement it but I think some of the carriers are already starting to implement the idea is. When a call is made. It stirred. That is the originating network attached authentication information to it, and then when received by the receiving network could be the same network could be a different one. it shaken. Both. Which means they verify? It's it's It's origination. See if you're GONNA DO SPAM Robo calls or spam calls of any kind you don't really same with spam email. You know really want anybody to know who was the real origination because then they could block you. Notice has spammers changed a phone number all the time. They usually these days try to use your area code sometimes even your local exchange. So the first six digits are the ones you recognize which is I think designed to make you think maybe it's your kid calling or the kids school calling or your doctor or somebody you know you just don't know that number. So they're hoping you'll pick up and then it goes you've just won a trip to. Nowhere. Going, maybe that's what's killing them. The timeshares and the trips. That's no good anymore is maybe that's what's killing them. There's also most of the carriers now are implementing A. Spam blocking technology I. Know T mobile just turned there's on. And and I've been using for some time apple has a feature which like the iphone I think that you can do this on Android to. Seem to remember where you say if I if that phone call is not coming from a number I, know. From my phonebook. Just. Send it to voicemail. You know and if it's important, they'll leave a message and then you can add them to your phone book if you want to hear from them from now, I like that feature. So my phone hardly rings anymore. But then I'm also I'm not a big phone caller either. I prefer other means of communication mostly none. Don't bother be it. I won't bother you how about that? What is that a deal? Okay. I call my mom once a week she's hard to get a hold of now. To mom you WANNA facetime because we usually facetime. That's the other thing. I don't use a phone as much as I'll use facetime or on Google side duo, or of course, we're all using zoom in meet in teams and all the different video calling things. That's not really a phone call. That's you know that's like a data connection. I feel like it's close to Funke plus phone call with pictures. But Mom doesn't really answer when I. A texture I because you know I, don't want to surprise her. And then you know I did, yes I'm feeling sad now. She's getting me back for all the Times I didn't call her. Mom You WANNA facetime. Crickets. So the chat room. So you saying you're still getting calls from the Marriott at least every other week says Burke. I feel like I feel like the call screenings gotten good. Now remember spam email was such a problem it's not going away. Still. The vast majority of Internet. Email traffic is spam junk mail. But we but the systems to block have gotten so good now that you just rarely see it anymore right Most of the spam I see stuff I signed up for newsletters I signed up for maybe I gave him I signed up for something I gave my address and they said you, you WanNa get stuff from us and I forgot to say no one. It's mostly that we call it bacon. It's spam you asked for is baking. If you get spam, you didn't ask for that spam. Of definitely spam. Not Related to hormones pork shoulder product the Hormel people would like me mention that. They actually allow us to use the term spam at first they were like that's our brand name for a product. Can you not call? Junk mail spam. For why we call it uses that's a terrible name. You see unsolicited commercial e-mail. Who's this I got some news today yet seen no spam just works hormel finally gave up then. All right fine. Call it spam, but just don't confuse it with our fine pork shoulder products. So I won't. I won't. It's delicious. It's not like junk email at all not in any respect. So it's gotten better hasn't it? This? The junk calls. Now and just get a lot of junk texts. Solution for that yet. You know where spam came from right Monty Python. If you ever want to go if you want some fun go to youtube if you haven't seen it in the spam skit. Where the they're, they're coming to breakfast and everything's got spamming it. A lot of spam spam takes over the whole skip pretty soon, the singers commencing Spam Anti Spam, Wonderful Spam. That's the Hormel pork shoulder product they're talking about there but somebody's united just like the junk email that multiplies. We'll get. So, they call it spam and A term was born.
L.A.'s Chateau Marmont Is Becoming a Members-Only Club
"Hollywood Tangalle to the shots or Mo monty set to become a members only hotel by twenty twenty, one, the owner Andrey Bellagio announced last week his plan studer and the ninety one year old hotel into an even more exclusive place Monaco's own report bounds who is no stranger to drink or two at the chateau school yards pass more on this story. Because of its geographical location and it's very comfortable accommodations, it really became the Hollywood hotel almost from the beginning of Hollywood. Sure, you'd look into chateau because you needed a bed for the night, but that could mean any number of different things. The Chateau was a hotel synonymous with sex drugs, rock road, death, infamy, madness badness, and depending upon your face and fame, simply the price in position of your room. The subtlest suggestion that will be things were okay. Sir. Just fine. Just sign here. Maybe get some rest. James Dean. Let through the window to begin his audition for rebel without a cause chateau. Natalie, wood reading a role for the same film at the age of sixteen. When able with a direct. Ray Hotel. She got the part Johnny Depp said, he'd made love to Kate Moss and every single one of the chateau sixty three rooms and their Zeppelin might have done something similar to just supposed to be not a waste of the same girlfriends. Used to push their groupies around on drinks, trolleys, killing two birds with one stone I suppose. Jay Z. and beyond say three parties, the Chateau Vanity Fez bash was held that all these people were following the lead of Jean. Harlow Arrow Flynn Lauren Bacall and Humphrey Bogart who used his labyrinth of rooms, terraces, bungalows, and conveniently dense foliage to conduct love affairs track notoriety while the angry spouses and nosy gossip columnists. architecturally, the Chateau is a weird dark gothic thing but as far more in common with Hollywood. With the Black Dailia Boris Karloff and Vincent price than with the area modernism of nine. Hundred. Sixty S Los. Angeles. It was not macrobiotic was not a detox. It was not up at six for a swim. It was still up six for a swim. From the proud sunset boulevard is your approach it. It's not unlike Disney's Cinderella Castle. But one where a night with John Belushi really would convince you that six hundred, nice could talk. So the shadows going members only, and that is a little sad because there is a sort of democracy in the access granted by the price of a Martini and seeing who else is the bar. I saw VESTA stallone and his mum having T to Capri looking a bit too warm at an art party, other discussion with Richard Lewis, comedian and rival of Larry David alone about reverend at the bar. He was unsanitary green light, considered it a waste to be. So, you could become a member why not? You could just turn out and smile. Maybe it'll stay the spiritual home of that time honored Hollywood hustle. For Monaco? I'm Robert Bound.

Therefore, we provide carry out and delivery services and within the restaurant me you're not gonna be able to fit his many people in there. But that, in a way seems to allow for Ah, different experience. I've been to several restaurants and I know it's not good for the owners, but not having as many people in there that is just a completely different, intimate experience. Correct and Russian tea time it's by itself. It's like having unique experience in transport you back in time to Imperial Russia, and you come here to experience a new culture and enjoyed a nostalgic cuisine. And right now we have only like 25 people at a time. And I think it makes that experience even more private and even more unique. Talk about the challenge. You've already touched on it in the pandemic, where you can't have a CZ many people there yet you need the cash flow. You know, you need to be open in some capacity as you try to hold on and maybe even make things work while we wait for the vaccine or something else to get here. Correct.

Give a pass to injustice and inequality decide that it's disrespectful for support, if not shelter those in need. Does he not realize that pastors of all faiths are joining crowds around the world fighting for these very ideals? That he was fighting against the tide of progress. So apparently he went after his Christianity. His Christianity about this. Don't you love that? So if you're against black lives matter, because you call him out for what they are. You're a bad person. You're not really Christian. Not this. You know that we caught we say it and the people that literally supported they're in denial that there a Marxist group.

Matt Dillahunty, Jim Barrows, and the Monty Hall problem
"Imminent Ohio. Who wants to tell us how? The monty hall problem proves there's almost certainly no god how you doing. I'm good, thank you for taking my call man Jim Hello so! Could you start with explaining what the Money High Hall problem is for those people who don't know. Maybe if I sent the hypotheses, though this might go a little bit better, but I'll do it if that's what you think stupidest so I'll do it that way. so the the Monty Hall problem is the game show from the past, and the host would show you three doors ABC and he would ask you to There'd be a prized behind one of them, and then I think the goats behind the other two, and he would ask you to pick a door. And, so you'd say well I. Don't know. I gotta one in three shots here. all go with door. A I've always liked the letter A. and my wife's middle initials as so let's go with day. And those who say Oh really a well. Let me show you. What's behind door be so he'd open door. Be and you'd find out that there's a go there and so then you're going. Oh cool. So then the host would ask you a question and he would ask you. Do you want to change your vote now? You WANNA switch from door to door see. And you're thinking will no. I don't want to switch my vote. I had a one in three shot before. And now it's fifty fifty, so my my chances are. Ev improved. You know and I've always loved the letter. A. And my wife is never wrong, so I'll stick with A. And this is intuitively what you should be doing. Is You feel it feels like your chances of their increased? But the truth of the matter is is that your chances have not increased at all and what you're. You're what you're seeing. Here is a false choice between it's either. A or at, sea. But really it is a or is it. And so the chance you're correct, remained a one third chance and the chance that you're wrong. Is two-thirds see so? You really should absolutely switching your vote at this point, right? Sure and this is. This is a problem that they've gotten wrong a lot so I go. Well I mean anybody can go. You can go to wikipedia. Look this up. You can find youtube videos described this I. Remember hearing about it, you know when I was much much younger Maryland, Voss savant, or whatever had had written an article about it and people couldn't believe that you know you're that you should switch and all of a sudden. There's a number of ways when I want to know is what the hell does this have to do with God belief as a great question so I. Think this comes up a lot when people come in and call in and ask you about like Pascal Wager, or and I'm going to talk specifically about a call that happened with you guys back and say September, but P. People consider it to be and I'm just because I want to be crystal clear I'm going to say did God create the universe right, so people think it's either God created the universe, or it's not God created converts. And like literally. Caller. That's true God created. The Universe or God didn't create univer. That's true. That's just a straight dichotomy. That is true, and but but people like they see it as fifty fifty, but not fifty fifty. Is it I mean you obviously knew this you? You talked about this and that phone. Call that I'm referencing from a long time ago. it's more into. Is it yellow or is it not yellow, right? There's yellow things, and then there's red and orange things, and then there's all the other things that like you know. Doesn't even make sense and still nothing like the Monty Hall Problem Okay so I'm sorry. At least you threw me off by having me do that. Part I, so let me try to get there, so I'd like to. Explore what is the chance that God created the universe and what I'm going to do is assume a high chance. That God created the universe and a very low chance that not God created the inverse. Okay, so just because we're talking on a phone call here. I'M GONNA. Keep the numbers simple, but they're obviously more complex than this, but out of one out of one hundred chance. Let's give one out of one. Hundred is not God side I, assuming a very low chance. Something not God created the universe. This is where you'd find your universe, creating Pixel. And let's assume a very high chance. A God created the universe. The ninety nine chance out of one hundred eight guide, craving numbers, and just to be fair, because obviously you and I don't have a horse in this race. We'll give one chance to every God. We can think of God of the Bible that got around the God of the tour. You know north guys native American Gods Tom. No pause, you just completely screwed this to where it's completely untenable, you cannot have ninety nine options that God created the universe, and then assign one to each individual. God because only one of those can actually be correct, so you only have a one ninety eight now giving your example, you've already screwed up the math and options on this.

"The MTO Monty B. form this this I want to you put water into a Cup it becomes the Cup you put water into a bottle it becomes the bottle you put in a teapot it becomes thirteen point one can flow point can crash the water my friend can you talk more about the significance of that quote which is now the title of your phone I felt that in addition to Bruce being water was a metaphor for this story of America being water and how Bruce approached America and how he saw it and there's moments in the film where we step back a bit for Bruce's story and then we talk about way Asians and Asian Americans have to go through that led up to the moment that Lucy would be rejected by Hollywood and I always think of these moments a sort of rocks that previously faced and that he had to kind of get past like water in a way right and you know my parents Vietnamese were refugees and and my mother she feels more American and Vietnamese now so I think the idea of America's fluid right it plans and melts into water just like Priestley's quote says and we're always trying to find these moments of progress right now we are in a moment where we as a country are crashing against these rocks and we have to try to find a way to to move around it but these rocks will always exist in many different forms and I think sleaze lessons in the world are still very relevant today Ballwin tells the story of the late actor and martial artist Bruce Lee and the new found water.

The show is in our US you. This is and so it's more of like a free flowing conversation so to speak. I mean to get a little tiny bits of I mean monty python monty python known for as Corey so rudely interrupted kidding Hundred Percent Monty Python revolutionized comedy Not say that. They weren't inspired by people before them but they've done some things You know some some just shoutouts. You've got of course Monty. Python's flying circus you've got monty python and the holy grail. You've got life Brian meaning of life and this whole slew of other different that but Time ended time man. It's technically considered a monty python film. But they're all in of course but it's not considered I'm I'm putting air quotes everywhere that no one can see by one but it's not. Yeah but yeah. Throw it in that category so all the S. and L. People in a movie. It's like it's not a lonely island film a lonely yeah exactly But yeah how do we want to? How do we want to do? We want to get into first impressions or like I said since I tell you right off the bat my first we go ahead. Ali was going to say. I'm very curious about your first impressions because and maybe I'll save mine for the end because or last because I before a getting ready for this episode. I had never consumed any Monty Python you are so I the only thing is like part of the holy grail. Okay when I was young all right right. Do you mind if I actually go. I all right sorry cord. That's fine the only reason I say this just underneath where you're going going blow. You'RE GONNA be the last one. So now I will say this with Monty Python and Corey noses to to a t and I think josh kind of like comedy is very interesting for me why. I am a certain of comedy. There's something I'll go to thing I'll watch it not one laugh out of me. That's funny but I don't laugh at it all time. It's just be like I'll just like our after resting bitch face like it's good. You know it's funny Monty Python. I don't watch a lot of SNL. I don't want I didn't watch a lot of Mad TV but monty python hates me in a different way. Feel warm for this. I told I told them all I was like. I'm changed personnel. This is who I am. S because like there is a level of sketch comedy that I just like. I don't care and then for this like they. The absurdist level of air gets me every time. The yeah it's it's not what they're setting up. It's just like how it just takes a violent turn and then it becomes the level degree of greatness and so to answer the question of like how. I got introduced to the Pythons for film school. I definitely watched I believe the meaning of life and that plays much more to the skit world the sketch world which I didn't realize that And now for something completely different. Their first film was much like that and so kind of went backwards. A little bit world is like and then I went straight to the flying circus and I watched the entire series and then I started watching all the documentary stuff but like I got introduced to each member of the pythons very differently like the first thing I saw. Eric idle in Casper. You're and then first time. I saw John cleese jungle book. And so it's really weird like I had these pieces in my childhood and I'm like Oh. The all came from somewhere like like humans. Do they come from somewhere? And Yeah so I. It's funny because like I seen the money. Bouche or another the Bush the mighty booze and I've seen other adult swim British comedy stuff like they were office and stuff like that but this is to me. I'm like okay now. I'm kinda seeing a little bit of like where the modernistic took it came from fawlty towers. Yeah who knows? I mean comedy against swinging me. Mrs Show that he made. Yeah and the star of it him running a small bed and breakfast it's passing that is their spam spam spam spam okay. That's that's me now. You may go corey. No it's fine so go for it. Go for me. I distinctly remember the day I was introduced to Monty Python shout out to my Dad Jolie. I was homesick from.

Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov 2: The Tale of Tsar Saltan
"Nicolai Ski Korsakov wrote the flight of the Bumblebee for an opera called the tale of czar. Salt on actually. That's just the Reader's digest abridged version of the title. The full Monty is the legend of Czar Sultan of his son. The famous end mighty hero Prince Vida Sultana Vich and of the Beautiful Swan Princess and at that title weren't enough. The plot is one of the most complicated in all of opera them. And that's saying the tale of our salt on is based on the story by the Great Russian poet. Alexander Pushkin once upon a time. Three sisters sat around discussing what they would do if they were married to the czar. That's Russian for ruler of the country. The first sister said she would make a huge feast. The second sister said she would weave beautiful cloth and the third sister said she would. Bears are salt a strong braves. The was listening in on the conversation and promptly married the sister who said she'd bear him a son then he told the feasts sister she could be the Palace. Cook and the cloth sister that she could be the royal weaver. They were not amused pretty soon. The newly married Zarina or Mrs Czar was expecting a child but before the baby was born her husband had to go off to war after the czar left Arina had a baby boy known as the Czarevich or son of Czar. The CZARINA sent her husband a message saying that they'd had a beautiful healthy son but her jealous sisters substituted a different message saying that she'd given birth to a monster when he heard that the czar was very unhappy and sent back a message saying not to do anything until he got home but the sisters intercepted that message to and substituted one saying that the arena and her son should be put into a barrel and thrown into the sea because this is a fairy tale not only did they survive but the boy actually grew up hour by hour as the barrel tossed on the water when mother and son washed ashore on an island. The first thing is our did was saved the life of an enchanted swan the swan him by making a beautiful city appear and Prince V. Don as the Czarevich was now known became ruler of that city by now. You're probably saying I thought there was supposed to be a flying. Be Somewhere in this story so far. The only thing with wings has been an enchanted swan well to make a long story not quite as long. Some people who traveled through Prince Vidalia City told him about SARS saw Tun's kingdom and czar south on heard from those same travelers about the amazing place where Prince Don lived so each of them really wanted to visit the other Prince v known got their first with help from the enchanted swan who let him pay three visits in disguise. I as a mosquito them as a fly and then you guessed it as a B. When's our salt on got to visit the Prince? He was delighted to see his long lost son. And all the miraculous things inference Vidalia city there was a squirrel that old emerald nuts out of golden shells a band of thirty three nights that marched out of the ocean in shining armor and a princess. More beautiful than the sun with moonlight in her hair and starlight in her face Of course the princess was the enchanted swan freed from her spell and changed back to a human being naturally she and the Prince got married and lived happily ever after
Isabella Gomez's Experience When 'One Day at a Time' Got Canceled
"One day at a time deals with some really heavy topics that deals with immigration deals with consent deals with sexual orientation. How has being on the show impacted you? I am exponentially better person because of the show. I I think I grew up very annot where and very ignorant of the world you. I like switched cultures when I was ten. I was completely new to this country and then I lived in Florida so I was just unaware of a lot of stuff. I didn't even know that I was unaware. I didn't realize there were more to learn and then move to la which is super liberal and super hippy. Dippy and super whatever and I get on a show like one day at a time where we're talking about these things that I know nothing about and it's just made me so much more aware it's made me so much more empathetic. It's made me realize that I am not the center of the universe. Which for a long time growing up as an only child and especially as an immigrant where it like. You only have your core family you think. Oh everything's kind of about me and how I'm transitioning through this and then I realized that that couldn't be further from the truth and is just it's Tommy so much about artistry in humanity and how much talking about these things actually means to people. 'cause I also grew up. There's all the talk of a presentation but I am white passing and Columbia. Everything was dubbed into Spanish. And so I grew up thinking that Hannah Montana and wizards to waverly place. Where about people like me because those girls looked like me and they were speaking Spanish and so it's just made me so much more aware. We interviewed a Gloria Feltler. Wrong Kellet out for one of our way back in the day Love her such a powerhouse. What have you learned from working with her? That anything is possible and that anything is possible on. You can still be nice. She is a powerhouse and she is taking over Hollywood and she is so nice and she can I curse and she gives a shit man like she gives a shit about everything that she does and everybody that's involved in her projects. And I think that is so powerful and meaningful especially in. I feel like our culture is so much about productivity. And and how much can you do? And how much can you like? Churn out and do whatever it takes to be that way like. I feel like you're in a few years ago. There was such an emphasis of like you can sleep when you're dead in like Hustle Hustle and you don't have to be nice if you just have to get it done and Gloria as the penny me of you can rest in have a balanced life and of course she still struggles with that but you can have a balanced life and be nice end still rise to the top. I think that is such a good lesson to learn this early on one day at a time originally on netflix loyal following dedicated following very vocal on social media and never more vocal than when. Netflix canceled the show. Where were you when you find out that they weren't going to pick it up for another season? I was in Vancouver and Mike and Gloria called me on the back and it's both of them and they don't. They're not screaming so I can tell something's wrong and Gloria says. Hey they're not picking our little show up and I felt like I get teary eyed. Just thinking about it. I felt my soul like unhinged like I just immediately started sobbing. It was really really rough and then I remember getting to the hotel room and calling my parents and crying in such a manner that they were like who died. Don't like what's happening. And it was like Monty family died and they were like you've been in this industry for fifteen years. You know this happens get it together and then when it got picked up again. I had been texting Mike and Gloria for a couple of days because I could feel it in the air that something was shifting and I remember Mike had told me will know by tomorrow and then I got on a flight to Spain so all of the time things were different and I had been on this flight for freaking like twelve hours whatever long and I got off on immigration and my parents had come with name and I opened my texts and I it was something like at Glory on Mike and Gloria said. Gomez you there and Gloria said Mike Gomez. They're glorious Ed. It's done we're doing the show or something like that and I didn't know how to handle myself I. I'm in an immigration. And he didn't I one of the trouble of my parents at the same time so I just like squealed to myself. I text my boyfriend at the time. It was like frigging like one. Am here to am here. And like I woke him up and he's like what's happening here okay and I was like shop. We got the show back and he was like. Oh my God and then I got to go the next day to a convention and I had a QNA schedule or a panel so there was what felt like millions of people in this frigging audience. And I got to tell them and we all got to just scream and cry together and it was just the most surreal. Couldn't make it up. Should be in a movie kind of moment. I've ever

Mitigation vs. Supression
"The chief medical officer has been talking about whether or not we should be having a countrywide shut down for a couple of weeks but he saying that that's not effective. What should we be doing? Do we just accept that. This is a life now. Well yes maybe we should jump and faint into normally we leave our research section till the end but in fact it's relevant to Oughta the chief. Medical Officer was talking about talk about it. Yeah so this is a study out of Imperial College. London mathematical mathematical model. Just remember. It's just a mathematical model. This controversy in Britain about so-called Mitigation Strategy and getting Herod Immunity and this study probably changed British policy and what it does model various degrees of social distancing and other policies on the effect on the epidemic and the particular looking at deaths and the impact on care units and in brief. What they show is if you if you let it rip if you let this epidemic rip the in the British context you'll get half a million lives lost and in the American context two point two million lines. A lot of people will die the upside if you can call it an upside. Is that the epidemic. We've actually much shorter. It would burn itself out because so many people would be infected about eighty percent of people being fainted. Soviet disaster terrible hospitals overwhelmed. Many many people dying. So nobody's going to do that. So what about mitigation and he will be missed. This has been misrepresented savings either or mitigation. Or what they call suppression getting it down to very low levels. Which is what the Chinese have tried to do. And what they've shown in this. Study to be brief. Mitigation is like the left hand side of the bar. Where you you're only doing one or two things to actually do social distancing and quarantining and so on and then there's the full monty on the right hand side where you're doing four or five different things and what they showed was that you've actually got to do a lot of things if you really want to suppress the virus spread to very low levels. You've got to do a lot You've got to do quarantine you've got to do social distancing and indeed. They say you've got clutch schools and universities and the reason they say that is that from some of the data. They got from some countries. Young people do get infected even though they don't get very seek and the beginning fainted at a slightly lower rate than other people but they do spread. Young people are spreaders and we spoke to this yesterday or the day before the spread it probably at about half the rate of everybody else but they still spread it and therefore to really get control. You go to close schools and universities. The how long are we? He like if it takes eighteen months for a vaccine to be ready. Are we talking about doing this for eighteen months? That's the scary part of this paper. Is they're saying well maybe you do. And so some governments are balking this Singapore for example where they haven't shot the schools and they're trying a lure key process but they've got very aggressive contact tracing very aggressive communication with the community. People get what's that misses a couple of times a day. Taiwan is similar so there are different strategies in different countries and New York. What New York's doing is they're doing two major lockdown but the problem with New York and other states in the United States is that they're stars. Luke morning Italy because they haven't had testing it's been spreading under under the radar and it's going to be bad and therefore they're locking down right now country like Australia where we've only got relatively few cases we've got probably a little bit of time but not very much time just to see how it's going so what they're doing is they're putting the food lightly on the break but it is very very lightly and so they're saying you're going to limit visitors to aged care about saving lives needs care. It's not about reducing the spread of the virus. We're going to limit gatherings to one hundred indoors. Five hundred outdoors. Those are arbitrary figures and fairly meaningless. A lot of people are already changing their behavior and not going out. Much the sting at home not going to work. A lot of the population are already doing far more than that. And they're talking about much more stringent rules on travel and travel will make a difference. Because you won't get importation of cases anymore at least into Australia. So we're doing a bit of the right thing and we were on more of the left hand side of the graph in terms of Mitigation Robin Suppression. But the problem is once you put your foot on the brake. You have no idea when you can take it off and might be as long as eighteen months and what the Imperial College people say. Well what you might do as pulse it. You might just off the break a little bit. See and see how fast you speed up. And then if it doesn't work you put back on the break and in Australia. What people would what they'll do. I hope they'll do. Is that the watch. The graph because moment is going almost vertical in New South Wales going really fast in Victoria as well from low numbers. But we've probably got three or four days just to see how it's going. And maybe the strategies individuals are doing going out and so on and these other strategies about large groups. Make a difference. I suspect not and I suspect they're going to be pushed into closing schools very difficult decision with a lot of impact but at the moment. They're not doing that in the winter. See what's happened. But they haven't got a Lotta time to waste. How long are we looking at dealing with this four until a vaccine comes along really Unless it's really really strongly seasonal and it just disappears in the northern summer and in the southern hemisphere disappears as we get into our summer oh towards December. Unless we're lucky with that it'll be with us until we get a vaccine but it will come back because they've been very few infections in the world which have disappeared completely so this is going to come back and we will need a vaccine but the worst case scenario is twelve to eighteen months until we get advancing really whatever way you cut it in for the long haul. We are in for the long haul questions. How severe is and how long we will put up with it because this major change to the way we live for a long period of time so if living things upside down today on Corona's we usually start with your questions. So let's get to them now if you want to send in a question go to ABC dot net dot EU slash corona virus. One of the questions. I'm seeing hates. Norman is whether or not you can get it twice a you immune once you've had five in nineteen. It's still an open question. I suspect what's going to happen with this. Is that is a problem of testing where you get your people know if you've had the flu for example and you know it seems to come back after a week or two is teasha while to shake it off and so that doesn't mean you've been reinfected immune to the virus hasn't gone it's waxing and waning and. I think it's a problem of tasting. We don't have a blood test that really rely tells you what's going on and it's a swab and maybe the the the the we're getting a false negative on the swab and then you get a positive. It doesn't mean you've been reinfected just means the test has been wonky. It's possible it'd be very disturbing if you get reinfection because it means immunity doesn't last a long time but I think the smart money is the immunity is probably going to be at least twelve to eighteen months from this virus. But that's still an open question. What sharing food and food safety is it possible? I guess the first question is. Can you catch it from food? And if so what should we be doing to keep ourselves safe around what we're eating? It's not proven that it can be caused from fruit as far as I'm aware. But what is proven and we spoke before is that in more than one study known children and adults. They have shown that the they can grow the virus and they can pick it up from Pu which means that your guests are into Stein on track is infected. And that means that they've ingested the virus and nobody knows the extent to which you catch it from food or the just swallowed a some as you picked up a droplet you've not only inhaled it. You've swallowed it. These are open questions and it just means that when you go to the bathroom you just to be super careful with soap and water. Wash it for wash hands for a long time. Be Very careful when you're appearing food particularly salads and raw food. I'm not saying you that you could eat healthily. Still the salad still eat raw food but just going to be super careful and of course well foods is a good idea. So we've heard hates about handwashing not doubt that that's really important. What about other things that touch our head and face our our head or you pillow that you lie on not should we be? Washing is more frequently than we would. Otherwise you're sharing a pillow with if it's just you and your partner and you you and your partner the you you you'd be no contact with any other people and you haven't come back from one of you has come back from overseas. Then what's on the pillowcase is? What's on the pillowcase? You're not going to get infected self infect yourself so that's fine I think that Casual sex is a problem. Because you don't know what you're going to catch on that's you. That's very intimate sharing of droplets. So I think that if you know your environment and you know who you live with then you don't need to worry about you. Pillows and sheets new

I wanted to go further back. Because you know the hard work didn't start with this collection and it goes back many many years to bring you to the position where you can even contemplate doing something like this absolutely so. I never interviewed a race car driver before so educate me and little. How how. How does someone become a race car driver? How does that even happen So I mean we kind of stumbled across it in the sense that so I started racing when I was eight K. My parents with us to live with my dad on the weekends. My Dad was you know this kind of Awkward Guys I. What do I do this little kitten? You know like a lot. Dads are and the thing that I loved loved. 'cause so as left car is crazy about cars as a little boys are in yeah and So that tons of toy cars. I used to Had A little radio control car and the actual like the initial point was I was full and our next door neighbor from the one bedroom. Flat that we lived in in Hatfield He built models of boats and he had built this radio control car. He was driving in cocking on the road and he came over and join. Do you WanNa go and I was like yes about two and I remember driving this thing and I was really good remote control car. Everybody was really quick. Yeah 'cause a big one that believe for thousands four year old able to control this little car with a joystick controllers and so then he bought me one and we started racing four hours racing against people of our age. Who's young establish Over ten years and and I remember to watch the racetrack. You stand on the podium to look down upon it and to to go with the Kind of defense to the over.

Youngest EVER TO BE SUCCESSFUL. Is that one day. We Start Recruiting People. That time right but now they do so. I was the youngest ever to be signed. And also you know. This sport never been diverse. Yeah was gonNA say because you didn't come from like a privileged background. It's a very expensive sport. It really is. So what was that like for you? It was? It was really for me as a kid I was. I was having fun in A. Yeah we go to school in my weekend. I'm going to my friend's house devastated by Rhonda Right and I loved it so much am but my dad was really hot for my family. My Dad remortgaged had to remortgage house. God knows how many times He had four jobs at one stage in the early stages which sounds crazy because there was no future plan for us you know but it was just hoping that we love doing but it was getting more and more expensive How can I? How can I make money to pay for the tires this weekend? How can I keep the call going? Nowhere weekends wells like aside to do a race number desert. I'm I'm sorry. I've done the money this weekend. So He's been the the one of the most infamous stepmom. She's coming to a new relationship as a kid there and she gave up her life. Saving and belief and the commitment was just.

You see people out there today.

Kennedy Ife death: Family cleared of 'exorcism' killing
"Okay prepare yourself. This is a bummer. August twenty. Sixteen paramedics are called to the FAA household. On Lancaster Avenue in Enfield North London Harry. Fa Rang to say that his brother Kennedy had quote gone a bit cold after feeling dehydrated and a bit weary is a British thing. It reminds me of Monty Python. The meaning of his leg was bitten. Sort of off. It might be. Yeah I love it I like it too. They sound so much classier than we do in America. Yeah it was dangling there was just GonNa plum ripped off so two and a half years later. Kennedy Phase Family was in court his parents Kenneth and Josephine and five brothers. Roy Harry Colonist Samuel and Daniel were on trial accused of manslaughter. According to some Kennedy phase parents and brothers believed that he was possessed by evil spirits and set about curing him with prayer and restraint that led to his death basically. They tried to perform an exorcism. This is not something that an amateur should try to do. Not Bring in a professional. You wouldn't Clean Your Own Sofa and expect good result. Why cast as above out of a loved one on your own. You wouldn't steal a policeman's CAP. Well there's an obscure reference. Somebody tell us what that's from and You will earn our undying respect so prosecution claimed that Kennedy who worked as an. It consultant was restrained for sixty seven hours in the seven bedroom mansion in Enfield and he was treated like an animal or detainee. The family described themselves as charismatic Christians and they held religious beliefs and thought that because Kennedy had become quote bewitched That they needed to cast out those those demons. The family together And according to the Lincoln page The Dad of the household Kenneth. Fa is a prominent public policy analysis. That's not a word analyst who had gone and advised for World Bank and the British government so later in Police Interview Colin. Fa One of the brothers stated that Kennedy had been behaving normally up until August. Thirteen That's when he ate at a Chinese buffet and started complaining of pain in his throat and he was finding it hard to sleep. Maybe he just had an allergy to peanuts or something. It's possible maybe he had indigestion who knows about five days later. He was complaining of seed in his stomach. He said that a python or a snake was inside of him. And this is according to Call an FA. He said that Kennedy believed that he had a demon inside his body wanting to kill him and this is what he told the court on August. Nineteen Kennedy became aggressive again. This is all according to the family during their trial. They said that he bit his father and threatened to cut off his own penis rather than taking him to a doctor His mother who is known to their church as sister Joe. She sought advice from their minister. Colin went onto describe. That Kennedy had become aggressive He was shouting about the mark of the beast and When the volunteers from the church came to the house one of them His name was Andrew and his last name. I'm not even going to begin to try to pronounce He was a volunteer at Jesus Sanctuary Ministries He prayed for Kennedy at the House along with two other ministers known as brother Peter and Brother Emeka and he told the court when I arrived. I was informed that we've been instructed to attend the address of sister. Joe To pray for Kennedy. They went to sister. Joe's house and They were gathered in the living room. He said that he saw Kennedy laying down on the city. He had a phone in his hand. He seemed to be typing something on his phone texting. Or whenever Andrew said I said high he said high and he looked me directly in the eyes. He did look unwell. He looked tired and as they began praying for him. Kennedy's father walked into the room with a man from different church and this is according to the volunteer from Jesus Sanctuary Ministries so Andrew added. I believed he was a pastor but I had never seen him before. Sister Jo asked if that man could take over he prayed for God to keep Kennedy. And he'll him. He then said that he was actually kind of angry. That he'd been asked to come out there and then was asked to leave immediately because some Rando Dude showed up. I'm paraphrasing of course. I think it was brother Rando Dude but he did report that Kennedy looked like he had a fever and that he was not as bright as he had been in. The past. One of the lawyers asked. Did you see Kennedy bound at any time during your stay and Andrew replied no and then they clarified. He was conscious. He greeted you Did you see that? There was any time where Kennedy appeared like he was not in his right mind and and he said no he. He seemed okay so he left Monday. August twenty second another brother Harry. Faa phoned nine nine nine and said that Kennedy was struggling to breathe. Paramedics arrived but Kennedy was already dead. The court heard that when police arrived at the House. The family was carrying out what they called an attempted. Resurrection Kennedy was laying face down on the floor and they were standing over him saying Kennedy. I command you to rise in the name of Jesus this did not work and during the trial a prosecutor. Tim Little claimed that the family had restrained Kennedy for sixty seven hours before laying him out on the ground and trying to resuscitate him when he stopped breathing. What kind of restraint they did. They go into detail was handcuffed and they used cable ties. Like Zip Taif my God. I can't find a comfortable position when I have the flu Yeah no this was not a great situation and I imagine it was scary for everyone involved especially the one being Zip ties tied. Who believes that? He's filled with demons. According to the prosecutor the family put misguided religious beliefs above this young man's health and wellbeing whether or not he was possessed by a demon or evil spirits. Obvious Common Sense concludes that he needed help. A pathologist found more than sixty injuries on Kennedy all consistent with forceful restraint. Did he find any snakes in his stomach? No snakes in not a single one that would have been a cool ending Sister Joe Mom said that the restraint was justified because Kennedy Post threat to himself but neither sister Joe or Dad said they knew where the handcuffs came from They also struggled with where the cable ties came from each suggesting. That media workman had left them from work that he had done years before. But one of the brothers Roy later told jurors that he bought the handcuffs on Ebay as part of a abandoned plan to go into part-time security. Work Yeah why? Did they have further on them? Sir No one was sure of who put the handcuffs or the restraints on Kennedy and everyone said Oh I don't know who did it no one saw any particular abuses being Laid on him by any particular person. It was just kind of this group. Effort that No one had any recollection of exactly how the events took place. Maybe they were the ones possessed. Maybe after the police were called Roy. One of the brothers told jurors that he panicked and took the handcuffs out of the House and threw them over the neighbor's fence. Which to me says that they knew that this was not the correct course of action. Sure if you're hiding evidence you you knew that this wasn't the right thing to be doing. Mr Little said that Claims that Kennedy was only held down. Temporarily were outlandish that. There's no way that the injuries caused him by these handcuffs and these zip ties were created just from the the individual instances that they said that they had to restrain him that he was obviously restrained for a lengthy period of time. Which because this whole process took place over? The course of three days leads me to believe. He was probably restrained for three days. The siblings all made the same choice. Not TO GIVE EVIDENCE AND BE. Subjected to the same scrutiny. According to the prosecutor however Kenneth Josephine Mom and Dad Roy Harry Colin Daniel Daniel. Daniel and Samuel were all cleared of manslaughter false imprisonment and causing or allowing the death of a vulnerable adult between the dates of August nineteen and twenty third 2016. It seems as though because they held these religious beliefs and they held them deeply that the jury felt that they were not liable for this man's cardiac arrest and death even though they held him down and restrained him and caused his death but they didn't according to the jury.

H. A. R. K. A. S. R. E. I. E. I. tweeted out at a video where Iranian protesters are breaking down the banner of Boston so the money that has been put up in the street they're ripping pictures that have been put up on the wall they are ripping and burning his picture down that we had two point four million views why because the media doesn't want you to see the truth on the one hand inside Iran don't have freedom of speech they'll have freedom of press everything is state controlled but they do have social media and they're able to see that the world outside is not what the propaganda of the regime has been showing them in fact in the last few days there's a tweet that president trump tweeted out where your Runyon's refused to walk on the American flag that has been painted on university grounds and Israeli flag has been painted on on university grounds because they honor the American flag and forty years of the regime basically shoving propaganda down their throat has not worked in fact it's on the exact opposite the Iranian people love America they love what America stands for and I urge the entertainment world and people in the media to show the beauty of the Iranian people of Iraqi people that I mean there are people that are protesting against their corrupt regimes and the media how the great responsibility not to inject fear into the American public had a young boy reach out to me on Instagram and say hi I'm an American and fourteen I just want to say I saw your YouTube video to make me feel so much better I thought Yvonne was gonna bomber sh and that really broke my heart because I am so disappointed in the mainstream media and frankly I'm disappointed with both sides we have to stop being so polarizing and attacking the other side let's go back to objective reporting let's stand with one another and really see this country as as a great country that it is it welcomes immigrants you know lawful immigrants and you can build your American dream and and you know serve one another and serve our neighbors and be kind to one another let's use our tongue to build one another up not to tear each other down Erica cut because right many months ago when Iran sent those missiles and destroyed part of Saudi Arabia there was a big chunk of the American political class almost all the Democrats and mode a lot of Republicans who said it's time to responding courage trump to attack Iran and the kill hundreds or maybe thousands of run ins but also destroy the ability of a rock to a launch missiles to refine or whatever it might be and do you understand in America everything trump does in the minds of some is wrong and so those who want peace which is president trump I believe have to counter balance whether it's Lindsey Graham or other Republicans and almost all the Democrats are pushing trump to attack Iran because they think that will get him defeated in November so the Democrats want him gone and a lot of a chunk of the Republican Party wants him gone can you look in your crystal ball if trump would have listened to the Democratic Party and attacked Iran massively whether it was in the last couple weeks or maybe several months ago when Iran attacked Saudi Arabia what would have been the impact in Iran if there were but a thousand cruise missile strikes taking out all of the bridges all the defense capacity taking out all of the refining capacity destroying the ability of Iran during port anything what would've what would've been the status if Iran at that point if trouble to listen to the Democrat party rock on we cannot repeat the mistakes of Iraq killing so the money you know trump moved the regime closer to class the regime as we get home but this is not a fight that belongs to the American people this is the fight of the Iranian people and I do not support a war with Iran and needed to the Iranian people we don't expect the United States is probably running in receipt Islamic regime we expect him to stay the course and take a stand firm against the regime do not negotiate with the Islamic Republic no truck put the regime on check they've been instigating this fight right and frankly I think president trump has Greek moral courage he knows he doesn't want to take the lives of innocent of Ronnie and plans of the behavior of a of a brutal regime the monster builder monster they don't care about their own people last November the regime slaughtered sixteen hundred kids in the street because the reproach peaceful protests thousands of political prisoners in Iran in jail because of their their criticizing the regime or they want freedom so no I don't believe that war is the answer I think that choking the regime of it of it you know ability to sell crude oil to the world market has been a the right course and I don't believe that we should negotiate with terrorists and I I truly believe that once that the regime falls which will be done by the lan yin people just do not I don't know when I don't have a crystal ball when they do they will now who stood with them and I truly believe that president trump will go down in history and they run in history as a great hero when they're working with all my heart when there was one point six billion dollars in cash Alex delivered in the dead of the night to Tehran at the time it occurred many said that John Kerry and Barack Hussein Obama was funding terrorism because a part of that money would be used to fund a mas and Hezbollah what's happening in South Yemen is it true that the average Ronnie and once the destruction of the current government in Iran and the Iranian nuclear deal kept than me in power longer than they should have been absolutely you have to ask the question what about money go I didn't go to building bridges I didn't go to fixing you know the this infrastructure of the country the people are poor the the value of the the as we all as at its lowest people are hungry there there the unemployment as Rick you know is unprecedented it is is that money had gone back into the American and into the Iranian economy the Iranian people would be pro testing today but they're protesting against this regime because they know they're corrupted move money into foreign account the stolen money from people's life savings I mean again that you got to follow the money right and and I and I urge the the the media outlets on both sides to do objective reporting that you know that to me is that you know the greatest failure of our of our current media if the American people don't trust the mainstream media anymore because of that they're tired of it I think the reason my video went viral because the average of the average American wants to hear the truth they're tired of this you know sound bite the packing one another if something good happens in foreign policy orchestrated by Donald Trump it would not be reported by the mainstream media in this country because they want him gone they want to make sure that in ten months he's not serving as the president anymore and we go back to the other policies of Kerry and maybe if you know if I can get selected god for bid yeah Biden was the architect he says of the nuclear deal with Iran the guaranteed the survivability of the regime in Tehran and also make sure that the Iranians in ten to fifteen years would get nuclear weapons and as a what I thought was going on he said Iran's leaders are trying to spark a reaction from trump that would hurt trump politically in America and that the running people would come together rally under the flag because they were being attacked it that's exactly fault in fact if you go to again go to Twitter and check out check out my page you'll see there's a there's a viral video right now and in fact last night president trump talked about that that video and his Milwaukee rally you know on the university grounds the regime paints the American flag in the Israeli flag and you can see that

How are you wo- gem Wellman thankful to be on your podcast and certainly thankful to be a head coach again here in Phoenix? When you wake up in the morning now as a head coach is a whole different burden. What am I gotta get to today, especially when you take over the lots of things you've got to, but is there a different weight on you in the morning when its head coach it is because I have to not only be responsible for the leadership of the team. My role is also to provide for Sistan coaches, and their wives. Opportunities for them to be successful and get their kids set up and, you know, all that stuff, and it's important stuff that we have to do in, it's a privilege to do that. And at the same time, I'm dealing with a lot of guys who want jobs and the toughest part about coaching that we don't talk about is having to cut players that work their tails off, but just aren't good enough. And tell guys know that I can't offer them a job. And so I've been doing that. You know, thankfully, I'm in this position to be a head coach, but, you know, a lot of my time is talking to a lot of coaches and really qualify guys who could help your staff, but I had already targeted a number of guys a few guys that I wanted to come here to Phoenix.

"Idol two questions. The first one is a show. Preceded your Monty python was a show called doctor in the house. Did you have any involvement with that show? In fact, I took a vow never to watch it. It was written actually by John Cleese and Chapman. Who of course. Joan will do anything for money. So, but he was quite funny. I think I believe, but no is the answer. I had nothing to do with its honest promise. Nathan follow up question for. The next next question is one of the funniest bits that you guys did was segment called the ministry of silly walks. Yes, come about. I think Michael Palin wrote it I'm with John with Terry Jones, and John Cleese played it because John could move in the most extraordinary way, unless he can't do it anymore because of age he has a silly Walker now, so, but you know, it was I thought this is almost Baletic performance. It's really funny. But what's funny about it is that they take it perfectly? Seriously, the minister is complaining, they don't have enough money to keep through, you know. So that to me, they'll straight us of wonderful pice way of just taking really absurd idea, but treating it completely seriously. Yeah, it can I can we step back in time a little bit Eric idle because we can we can we'll talk a lot more about the impact and influence that python has had on subsequent generations of comedians. But but I'm not yet through understanding sort of your inspirations here because you write in the book specifically about. A moment in time for you where you say after this point, you could not conceive of life without comedy. And that's when you saw beyond the fringe with Peter Cook Dudley Moore, Alan Bennett in the early nineteen sixties toes a little bit about that. There's about ninety sixty two and they will they were Cambridge and auctions review. And they came from the Edinburgh festival, hence, the fringe reference, and they would just hilarious Beata coat was probably the funniest man in the world, they which and I had never seen anything like this. And they attacked the monarchy in the and the forces in the war, and they mocked everything of of British life. And it was just so refreshing. It was like a complete they wiped the blackboard, and and I just rolled around the floor laughing. I just thought I didn't know you were allowed to do that an off to that. I didn't want to do anything else. I I learned the I. Album on. I just wants to be funny off to that. You learn the album you memorize memorize all the bits and Alan Bennett bits. And you know, it was it was just it was life. It was game changing and changing too. Because it brought San a sense Abu into England's and he would Peterbilt with mock, the prime minister was just how McMillan and they actually change the government because he was now an object of ridicule on shows you how powerful comedy is. I mean, we see today, you know, how how important it is to people to deal with unpleasant realities by by using comedy. Yeah. Well, you know, what we actually went back, and and grabbed a one moment from a beyond the fringe. This is from the stage review performed in London in nineteen sixty one. It did actually and then moved to Broadway. This is an early part. And I have to say Eric when I watched it. I thought my God if it hadn't been for the black and white film. I was I was watching it could have been filmed yesterday because there was a time. Listening to it. We picked apart where Alan Bennett, Peter Cook Jonathan Miller and Dudley Moore's in in this scene as well.

"Make you mad get ready for a statistics lesson. I'm getting ready for angry emails. Yeah. I was hesitant to even run this story on the podcast. But people love reading about it. The thing is that when this was originally published it was answered. By one of the smartest women in mathematics in the entire world. And she got like ten thousand letters of hate mail about her answer yet. It's a frustrating problem. But I promise you, but we're reporting his right. Absolutely. You can check other sources. It is true. So Monty hall was the host of a game show called. Let's make a deal from nineteen sixty three to nineteen Eighty-six. And here is how the Monty hall problem goes Monty hall presents you with three doors one. He says has a car behind it, which you'll win if you pick it the other two doors are hiding live goats, which means you win nothing. Monty hall ask you to pick a door. Let's say you go with door number one. He doesn't open that door yet though. Instead he opens door number three to reveal a goat. So you know that between door number one which you picked and door number two, which you didn't one has a car and the other one has a goat. Now, you get the chance to either stick with your choice of. Door or switch to door number two. Should you? Switch the seemingly obvious answer. Is that it doesn't matter? You've got a fifty fifty shot at winning the car either way. The correct answer though, is that you should absolutely switch. The key to this puzzle is to realize that it's not truly random Monty hall knows which door contains the car, and he's not going to open it until the end of the game. They give it this way before you choose a door. There's a one out of three chance that any one of them contains the car, but once you choose door number one and Monty hall opens door number three to reveal that it doesn't contain the car door number two's chances shoot up to two thirds. Remember, there's probably something special about door number two. That led him not to open it. Here's a different way to break it down so three things could happen. If you choose to our number one if the car is endure number one and he switched to door number two. Then you lose if the car is endure number two and you switch to door number two. Then you win sort of those two options you win one. You lose one right now. Here's the third option. Let's say the car is endure number three and Monty hall opens door number two to reveal a goat. Now in this case if you switch to door number three, then you win so overall switching wins you the car two out of three

"This is during the Monty python dynasty. Yeah. So you would smear them with milk, and Honey, and then you would leave them to all the stinging insects that were out there. So if they came back, and they would leave you for something like twenty days if they came back, and you would still not dead. They would then take you dress you up in women's clothing. If this was a man, and they would walk you, and everyone would walk with you to the edge of a cliff, and then they would just throw you off the cliff. The way the women's clothing. Just one last caper. There were three men who were executed. They would call the Cato street conspirators, and this was in eighteen twenty they'll call brunt inks and Thistle would and they really kind of face down their own death. So brunt he refused to be blindfolded. He took a pinch of snuff and said some like a little speech James things. He started to really really loudly. Sing death. All liberty. And then Thistle woods said be quieting 's we can die without all that noise. Okay. It is time for fact, number three. And that is my fact, my fact this week is that according to a new scientific study the single most convincing word a human can use to prove that they are human and not a robot is the word poop. It's not the robots can't say poop is it. So what is it? What it was basically, this is a sort of what they call the minimal turing test. So we go your classic during tests where the idea is you're trying to find whether or not a computer is a computer and a human issue. So I have a conversation with a computer and his weather on that. I can tell whether it's a computer on right? Yes. Exactly. So in this study, they tried to reduce it from a conversation to a single word, and what they've been asked over nine hundred thirty six people was specifically nine hundred thirty six people weirdly, I thought it was one thousand eight thousand nine people mentally is.

"Get another show that happening in the media landscape today. So when when when you couple that with, you know, all of the trials and tribulations, we've just been. Talking about. At there's no fundamental appreciation for the past and the past is really where all the lessons are. There's people that have made these mistakes time. Again, there's patterns that you can pick out over the course of history. He can determine where we are as a society today with respect to those kinds of patterns, right? It works with the market. It works with societies. It works with religions. I mean, all kinds of things. And I think the more we can focus on the true fundamental human lessons that are common to us all. And share those in a communal way. I think the better off we're going to be because the media consumption landscape is not allowing that to happen today and the focus like it or not has to be on on books on the things we can still put our hands on that we can point to that are literally printed in black and white. That are truths or that our experiences that happened before that can inform us today and tomorrow. So Scott, I know that you're working on something that we'd love to maybe here a little more about the absolutely touches on that very point about the value of history. The fact that we find ourselves as -iety constantly having to relearn some of the same lessons. Is there a particular lesson that you hope that you can bring forward in your book that if you could imagine this is one lesson that I would really, really hope that we don't have to continue to relearn that this is something that somehow can be embedded into the fabric of our society generational that you would find particularly powerful. There are so many. So tentatively. The book is called what's past prologue? Timeless business wisdom from a poets philosophers and authors of the past and the title at self was past as prologue that's a line out of Shakespeare. And it's also, interestingly carved in a sculpture outside of the national archives in Washington DC. My senior thesis as an undergraduate was about classical architecture and sculpture in the federal triangle in Washington, so much inspiration there that the founding fathers and and and architects that city had and they realized that there was so much wisdom throughout the ages. So. In terms of some of the the lessons that we. That that we can take the past. Where to begin. I think one of the. One of the most important ones, and we've, we've touched on it here throughout with that. Really naming it is the ocean of empathy. Will you call it? You know, walk a mile in my shoes or, you know. Whatever you have to call it. And I think it's stated best by Cicero. Who two thousand years ago said, if you wish to persuade me, you must think my thoughts feel my feelings and speak my words. That right there in three simple lines encapsulates everything we've just been talking about in terms of understanding in terms of seeking the truth in terms of de escalating, some of the anger out there. Think my thoughts feel my feelings, speak my words. Will Scott will tell you what very much look forward to that book. In addition to, obviously you're referencing Shakespeare and Cicero for those of the people who are listening to this podcast, don't necessarily see it's her out the Conan, Doyle, as is noted in terms of, you know. Right behind you in terms of Sherlock Holmes and what we can learn. I'm sure from a lot of those books as well. But anyway, just wanna tell you how pleased we are that you joined us today to talk about some things that I think are really important about us in about community. And if you could just finally leave our listeners with them some ways that they can engage you online and learn more about your work. That'd be terrific. Sure.
