"But there's another interest of mine that I'm excited to share with you guys and depending on who were talking about. There's even a little true crime esque in there too. If you grew up in the US, you probably grew up with this of the former presidents as these serious dignified insanely boring old men who never had any fun in their lives and there's a reason. This is all the history books. Tell us because the truth is well, it's embarrassing for the country and almost too wild to believe the White House has been full of scandals. Drama and even a little bit of true crime from the very beginning and the more you learn about what was really going on in the Oval Office. The more you'll have to wonder how did we make it this far? Welcome to vary presidential apart cast original in this podcast I'm going to be looking at fifteen presidents who'd be on the Mount Rushmore of bad behavior and today I'm starting off with one of the most beloved presidents in American History John Fitzgerald Kennedy in less than three years JFK was involved in more scandals than most people can hope for in a lifetime he basically turned. The. White House into the playboy mansion accidentally slept with not one. But two spies met with foreign leaders in a drug addled Hayes, and nearly started a nuclear war because he wanted to look good in the press for decades the public didn't have a clue about any of this. But the facts we have now call into question everything we thought we knew about the Kennedys. John F., Kennedy was a Rockstar at forty three years old. He was the youngest president ever elected and arguably the hottest every woman in America was swooning over his boyish good looks toss old hair and casual self confidence and even though the Kennedys are one of the richest families in America, he was seen as sort of an underdog. He was the first Catholic president ever elected which was. A big deal for the Irish Catholic community more than anything Jack as his friends called him was a breath of fresh air. He was young energetic a family man his wife Jackie was already becoming a fashion icon his brother Bobby was appointed as the new attorney general, which let's say was a bit of a controversial choice but love them or hate them the Kennedys were America's new royalty. Of course though that image was carefully crafted. Even after his death, the Kennedy family went to extreme lengths to hide anything that might compromise Jack's reputation. and. There was a lot. Let's start with that youthful vigor that was one of his main selling points just fifteen years before in nineteen forty-five FDR had died in office after a long period of illness. So everyone was worried that the same thing might happen again, which is why throughout the nineteen sixty campaign jack insisted that he was in perfect health but this was a complete lie. JFK's health problems are no longer a big secret today but most historians still Kinda tend to skip over how serious they actually were and what he did to cope with them. It's literally a miracle that Jack was still alive to be president. At Age forty three, I mean he'd been extremely deathly ill his entire life he'd actually been. So close to dying that he had his last rites administered on four separate occasions. He was eventually diagnosed with Colitis, which is this chronic disease of the large intestine and he also had Addison's disease which causes hormone deficiencies and as a side effect of the steroids that he had to take. He had back problems that caused him to be in constant pain. Now, none of this sounds too serious in terms of how it affects someone's decision making mean shirts distracting to be in pain all the time, but he was still mentally sound, right Well he would have been but to deal with his pain, Jack was taking basically every drug known to pharmacology I mean we're talking morphine sedatives, barbiturates, narcotics. He was even on four kinds of steroids daily including anabolic steroids, and that's the same kind athletes use for muscle building and they're known to cause paranoia mania aggression after long term use. Essentially if Jack had to take a drug test, he would have. been fired from any government job and probably referred to a Rehab Center and yet here he was with his finger on the nuclear button making decisions that would affect the entire glow. Now, a lot of biographers insist that Jack's health problems and medications didn't have any effect on his leadership but psychiatrist Naseer Gami who review Jacks medical files said that claim was hard to accept biologically especially when you look at his. Behavior, in office, which was an endless parade of disasters. On Day, three in the White House before he even had time to settle in Jack, got a visit from the CIA director. There was one little thing that needed the president's attention. The CIA had been training guerrilla army to invade Cuba and overthrow the government. The US wasn't a fan of Cuba's Prime Minister Fidel Castro because he was a socialist and this was the Cold War but Jack Wasn't totally convinced that staging a coup was the best answer mostly because if Anyone, tied it back to the US it'd be a whole international crisis, but the CIA says listen don't worry about it. We're going to invade yet, but it's not gonNA look like an invasion we've recruited over a thousand Cuban rebel fighters for the job. So we play our cards, right? No one had any idea that the US was ever involved. So Jack says, okay, fine. Let's let's do it but just to be extra sure that it doesn't fall back on us you. Are. Not Allowed to participate in the invasion at all in any way shape or form ever the end. But the fifteen, hundred, Cuban guerrillas, send them on their own with. And let's just see what happens and of course, what happens is a complete disaster. When the invasion takes place on April seventeenth guerrilla fighters barely make it onto shore a hundred and eighteen of them or killed over three hundred or wounded, and the rest are all captured and not only does the Bay of Pigs, invasion fail miserably but it's obvious that the US was behind it. The biggest consequence for Jack, is that he kind of looks like a bumbling idiot both at home and abroad everyone's worst fears were confirmed. Maybe JFK is just a pretty face and he's too young and too inexperienced to actually lead. The next night, Jack is meeting with a couple advisors in the Oval Office when he suddenly breaks off mid-sentence and walks out into the Rose Garden, he spends an hour just walking around silently by himself. The next morning, his press secretary finds him crying in his bedroom, and then over the next few days, he keeps muttering to himself. How could I have been? So stupid of course, it might have had something to do with the FBI storage lockers, worth of drugs that he was taking, and despite all the meds his underlying. Conditions were only getting worse in fact, just a month later in May of nineteen, sixty one he threw out his back during a tree planting ceremony I mean so bad. He couldn't even walk. This was a problem because in a couple of weeks, he was supposed to fly to Europe to meet the Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev in the Cold War perception was everything he couldn't show up hobbling around on.

"To very presidential, apar- cast original in this podcast, I'm going to be looking at fifteen presidents who'd be on the Mount Rushmore of bad behavior and today I'm starting off with one of the most beloved presidents in American History John Fitzgerald Kennedy in less than three years JFK was involved in more scandals than most people can hope for in a lifetime he basically turned. The White House into the playboy mansion accidentally slept with not one but two spies met with foreign leaders in a drug addled Hayes and nearly started a nuclear war because he wanted to look good in the press for decades the public didn't have a clue about any of this but the facts we have now call into question everything we thought we knew about the John F. Kennedy was a Rockstar at forty three years old. He was the youngest president ever elected and arguably the hottest every woman in America was swooning over his boyish good looks toss old hair and casual self confidence, and even though the Kennedys are one of the richest families in America, he was seen as sort of an underdog. He was the first Catholic president ever elected which was. A big deal for the Irish Catholic community more than anything Jack, as his friends called, him was a breath of fresh air. He was young energetic a family man, his wife Jackie was already becoming a fashion icon. His brother Bobby was appointed as the new attorney general, which let's say was a bit of a controversial choice but love them or hate them the Kennedys were America's new royalty. Of course though that image was carefully crafted. Even. After his death, the Kennedy family went to stream length to hide anything that might compromise Jack's reputation. and. There was a lot. Let's start with that youthful vigor that was one of his main selling points just fifteen years before in nineteen forty-five FDR had died in office after a long period of illness. So everyone was worried that the same thing might happen again, which is why throughout the nineteen sixty campaign jack insisted that he was in perfect health but this was a complete lie. JFK's health problems are no longer a big secret today but most historians till kind of tend to skim over serious, they actually were and what he did to cope with them it's literally a miracle that Jack was still alive to be president at. Age Forty three I mean he'd been extremely deathly ill his entire life he'd actually been. So close to dying that he had his last rites administered on four separate occasions. He was eventually diagnosed with as which is this chronic disease of the large intestine and he also had Addison's disease which causes hormone deficiencies and as a side effect of the steroids that he had to take. He had back problems that caused him to be in constant pain. Now, none of this sounds too serious in terms of how it affects someone's decision making I mean sure it's distracting to be in pain all the time, but he was still mentally sound right Well he would have been but to deal with his pain, Jack was taking basically every drug known to pharmacology I mean, we're talking morphine sedatives, barbiturates, narcotics. He was even on four kinds of steroids daily including anabolic steroids, and that's the same kind athletes use for muscle building and they're known to cause paranoia mania and aggression after long-term. Essentially Jack had to take a drug test. He would have been fired from any government job and probably referred to a Rehab Center and yet here he was with his finger on the nuclear button making decisions that will affect the entire glow. Now, a lot of biographers insist that Jack's health problems and medications didn't have any affect on his leadership but psychiatrists Naseer Gami who review Jacks medical files said that claim was hard to accept biologically especially when you look at his behavior office, which was an endless parade, a disasters. On Day three in the White House before he even had time to settle in Jack got a visit from the CIA director there was one little thing that needed the president's attention. The CIA had been training guerrilla army to invade, Cuba and overthrow the government. The US wasn't a fan of Cuba's Prime Minister Fidel Castro because he was a socialist and this was the Cold War but Jack Wasn't totally convinced that staging a coup was the best answer mostly because if anyone tied it back to the US, it'd be. A whole international crisis but the CIA says don't worry about it. We're going to invade. Yes but it's not gonNA look like an invasion we've recruited over thousand Cuban rebel fighters for the job. So we play our cards, right? No one had any idea that the US was ever involved. So Jack says, okay fine. Let's let's do it but just to be extra sure that it doesn't fall back on us, US forces are not allowed to participate in the invasion at all in any way shape or form ever the end. But the fifteen hundred Cuban guerrillas send them on their own with no backup and let's just see what happens and of course, what happens is a complete disaster. When the invasion takes place on a seventeenth but features barely make it onto shore a hundred eighteen of them or killed over three hundred or wounded, and the rest are all captured and not only does the Bay of Pigs invasion fail miserably but it's obvious that the US was behind it. The biggest consequence for Jack is that he kind of looks like a bumbling idiot both at home and abroad everyone's worst fears were confirmed. Maybe JFK is just a pretty face and he's too young and too inexperienced to actually lead. The next night Jack is meeting with a couple advisors in the Oval Office when he suddenly breaks off mid-sentence and walks out into the rose. Garden, he spends an hour just walking around silently by himself. The next morning, his press secretary finds him crying in his bedroom, and then over the next few days, he keeps muttering to himself. How could I have been? So stupid of course, it might have had something to do with the F.. B.. I. Storage Lockers, worth of drugs that he was taking. Despite. All the MEDS, his underlying conditions were only getting worse in fact, just a month later in May of nineteen sixty one he threw his back during a tree planting ceremony I mean so bad that he couldn't even walk. This was a problem because in a couple of weeks, he was supposed to fly to Europe to meet the Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev in the Cold War perception was everything. He couldn't show up hobbling around on crutches. He'd look like a weakling in front of the whole world press. So he decided to call this guy doctor Max Jacobsen. Doctor. Jacobson. was sort of a mad scientists slash doctor to the stars. He treated everyone who's anyone.

"But there's another interest of mine that I'm excited to share with you guys and depending on who we're talking about. There's even a little true crime esque in there too. If you grew up in the US, you probably grew up with this image of the former presidents as these serious dignified, insanely boring old men who never had. Had any fun in their lives and there's a reason. This is all the history books. Tell us because the truth is, well, it's embarrassing for the country and almost too wild to believe the White House has been full of scandals, secrets drama, and even a little bit of true crime from the very beginning and the more you learn about what was really going on in the Oval Office. The more you'll have to wonder how did we make it this far? Welcome to very presidential, apar-, cast original. In this podcast, I'm going to be looking at fifteen presidents who'd be on the mount, rushmore of bad behavior and today I'm starting off with one of the most beloved presidents in American. History. John. Fitzgerald Kennedy in less than three years. JFK was involved in more scandals than most people can hope for in a lifetime, he basically turned the. The White House into the playboy mansion accidentally slept with not one. But two spies met with foreign leaders in a drug addled Hayes and nearly started a nuclear war because he wanted to look good in the press for decades. The public didn't have a clue about any of this. But the facts we have now call into question everything. We thought we knew about the Kennedys. John F., Kennedy was a Rockstar at forty three years old. He was the youngest president ever elected, and arguably the hottest every woman in America was swooning over his boyish good looks toss alled hair and casual self confidence, and even though the Kennedys are one of the richest families in America. He was seen as sort of an underdog. He was the first Catholic president ever elected, which was a big deal for Irish. Catholic community more than anything. Jack. As his friends called, him was a breath of fresh air. He was young energetic, a family man, his wife Jackie was already becoming a fashion icon. His brother. Bobby was appointed as the new attorney general, which let's say was a bit of A. Choice, but love them or hate them the Kennedys were America's new royalty? Of course, though that image was carefully crafted. Even after his death, the Kennedy family went to extreme lengths to hide anything that might compromise Jack's reputation. And there was a lot. Let's start with that youthful vigor. That was one of his main selling points, just fifteen years before in nineteen forty-five FDR had in office after a long period of illness. So everyone was worried that the same thing might happen again, which is why throughout the nineteen sixty campaign jack insisted that he was in perfect health, but this was a complete lie. JFK's health problems are no longer a big secret today, but most historians till, Kinda, tend to skim over how serious they actually were and what he did to cope with them. It's literally a miracle that Jack was still alive to be president at age forty. Forty three I mean he'd been extremely deathly ill, his entire life he'd actually been. So close to dying that he had his last rites administered on four separate occasions. He was eventually diagnosed with Colitis, which is this chronic disease of the large intestine, and he also had Addison's disease which causes hormone deficiencies and as a side effect of the steroids that he had to take. He had back problems that caused him to be in constant pain. Now, none of this sounds too serious in terms of how it affects someone's decision making I, mean, sure it's distracting to be in pain all the time, but he was still mentally sound, right. Well. He would have been but to deal with his pain, Jack was taking basically every drug known to pharmacology I mean we're talking morphine sedatives, barbiturates narcotics. He was even on four kinds of steroids daily including anabolic steroids, and that's the same kind athletes use for muscle building, and they're known to cause paranoia mania an aggression after long term use. Essentially, if Jack had to take a drug test, he would have been fired from any government job. Job and probably referred to a Rehab Center, and yet here he was with his finger on the nuclear button making decisions that would affect the entire glow. Now, a lot of biographers insist that Jack's health problems and medications didn't have any effect on his leadership, but psychiatrist Naseer Gami who rebuke Jacks medical files said that claim was hard to accept biologically especially when you look at his actual behavior in office, which was an endless parade, a disasters. On Day three in the white. House. Before he even had time to settle in Jack, got a visit from the CIA director. There was one little thing that needed the president's attention. The CIA had been training guerilla army to invade Cuba an overthrow the government. The US wasn't a fan of Cuba's Prime Minister Fidel, Castro. He was a socialist and this was the Cold War. But Jack Wasn't totally convinced that staging a coup was the best answer mostly because if anyone tied back to the US, it be a whole international. International Crisis. But the CIA says, don't worry about it. We're going to invade. Yes. But it's not gonna look like an invasion. We've recruited over a thousand Cuban rebel fighters for the job. So we play our cards, right? No one had any idea that the US was ever involved. So Jack says, okay, fine. Let's let's do it. But just to be extra sure that it doesn't fall back on. US. US forces are not allowed to participate in the invasion at all in any way shape or form ever the end. But the fifteen hundred Cuban guerrillas, send them on their own with no backup, and let's just see what happens, and of course, what happens is a complete disaster. When the invasion takes place on seventeenth grill fighters barely make it onto shore a hundred eighteen of them or killed over three, hundred wounded, and the rest are all captured and not only does the Bay of Pigs invasion fail miserably. But it's obvious that the US was behind it. The biggest consequence for Jack is that he kind of looks like a bumbling idiot both at home and abroad, everyone's worst fears were conferred. Maybe JFK is just a pretty face and he's too young and too inexperienced to actually lead. The next night Jack is meeting with a couple advisors in the Oval Office when he suddenly breaks off mid-sentence and walks out into the Rose Garden, he spends an hour just walking around silently by himself. The next morning, his press secretary finds him crying in his bedroom, and then over the next few days, he keeps muttering to.

"naseer gami" Discussed on The Thread with OZY

"Martin Luther King junior believed that being maladjusted to the world and to the status quo was essential to the fight against injustice. But it was also a big part of what made king the leader. He was this isn't a seer Gami. He's a psychiatrist at Tufts University and Harvard Medical School who studies depression and bipolar illness, and who has written about leaders who have suffered from manic depressive illnesses. So I think king's idea was that we need to be maladjusted enough with the world to want to change it for the better. My view is that this is not a purely intellectual concept or even a purely spiritual one. Although it certainly has aspects of both. I think it's also emotional and psychological in that king himself being depressed as well as having manic symptoms as part of his personality was maladjusted to the world as it was as a human being. That's right. Martin Luther King junior almost certainly suffered from manic depression. He was clinically maladjusted, king experienced depression during his adult scence which manifested itself in two suicide attempts. But it went beyond that he had periods of depression throughout his life where he would for a few days to a few weeks often need to go into a medical hospital. He was hospitalized for exhaustion, was the diagnosis that was frequently given, but he never had any physical medical costs for his hospitalizations. King was often in despair near the end of his life. He lamented that his dream at turned into a nightmare, and he was likely in the grips of a deepening depression when he was murdered fifty years ago in Memphis, Tennessee king was not alone in his battles with depression. The Hondas Gandhi also suffered several bouts of severe depression in his life starting in Adelaide scence. When he was around twelve years old, he decided to kill himself and went with a friend to attempt with poison and was on the verge of taking it until he backed out at the last second. And as with king, it did not end there. And then later in his life, he would have periods of time where for a week or a couple of weeks, he would just take to his bed. He would feel very sick physically, and doctors will tell him that there was nothing medically wrong with him, but he would describe how he would go to bed at night and be convinced that he was going to die. Another champion of non-violence who could identify with such experiences was Leo Tolstoy. This is Tolstoy biographer, Jay parini Tolstoy was bordering on bipolar. He he seemed to have, you know, periods of extreme exhilaration with periods of very dark. Depression often talked to his friends about wanting to commit suicide Tolstoy's own psychological condition. However, is also arguably what made him such a good novelist and light Ghandian king. It gave him a profound sense of empathy. Why? Impetus? Oh important because it is the secret ingredient of nonviolence. Gandhi went, said three. Fourth of the miseries in misunderstandings in the world will disappear if we step into the shoes of our adversaries and understand their standpoint, stepping into the shoes of your adversary is not an easy thing to do, but it wasn't as hard for individuals like king Gandhi and Tolstoy, and we are starting to understand why that's. The case. So there's research that shows that people have depression are more empathic than people who don't have depression, Naseer Gami again, we know the what we don't really know the how the why we know that people are depressed or more empathic. Now, if I were to speculate about it, I've talked to patients of mine who've had depression, and they describe that when they're depressed in an amount, a great deal of psychological pain, and they can understand the pain of others more. They feel the pain of others. One patient of mine once said that when she was really depressed, she could barely walk outside because she could feel every blade of grass crumble under her feet. And most of us who are not depressed most of the time, just ignore those things. In other words, dealing with depression is painful, but in some ways, depressed people see reality more clearly than others do, and that experienced deepens their natural IMP. Pithy for those around them. I think of nonviolence as radical empathy and you can turn the other cheek and not strike back because you care about the other person who's hitting you. You at a very hard thing for human being to achieve Gandhi, king and Tolstoy not only shared a philosophy of non violence, but also a very similar psychological profile. My thinking is that that these aren't coincidences that the the reason they took this political philosophy of nonviolent change has to do in part with the fact that they had experienced depression repeatedly in their lives. Enhanced empathy though, is only part of the equation. Jay parini again, people who live on the edges like Gandhi, Martin Luther King. These are people who are visionaries and who can see both very bright sun in the very dark sky. And I think that they they swing between, yes and no all the time. I think Tolstoy. He was always hovering between the yes in the know. And if the no side of things lead such visionaries into a greater sense of empathy, the yes side, the manic side drove them to excel in an entirely different way. Many people don't understand what mania means. The term to them is pejorative. All it really means is that you talk fast, you move fast, think fast. You have a lot of energy. Usually such persons are very productive. Take Martin Luther King usually Dr. King was very high energy, both physically and sexually. He only needed about four hours of sleep at night or buyer dressed in. So generally he was a Heiner g person with a high sexual Dr Who spent a lot of money who was very flamboyant and very talkative, very creative. In fact, studies show that having manic symptoms as part of your personality can help make you both more creative and more resilient. You're less likely to experience major traumas or stress even in the face of incredible adversity, and that is precisely what you. Need in a violent leader. One thing you can say about all of them is that they had a lot of courage. Now you can especially say that about Dr king perhaps the most. But also Gandhi certainly and Rushton. They had a lot of personal courage. They were not scared by people easily, or if they were scared, they didn't let that fear stop them from being true to their principles, and they were able not only to channel their own energy and aggressive impulses into the courage needed to resist violence. They were able to show their followers how to do the same. But they're examples, teach us about much more than just how to battle injustice. So Gandhi king Rushton are important because they were trying to to change our mindset on race in and sexuality. But at the same time, if we understand them, well, we have to change our mindset around psychiatric illness, and I think that's an important important aspect of of. Really knowing who they were. The legacy of nonviolence continues to be felt today up. Next, we look at some of the most powerful examples of non violent protests in the fifty years since Dr king's death and hear about new scientific research, confirming just how effective nonviolence is a means for -ccomplish ING. Social change. There
