"Making Mac Whopper emerge Cheeseburger Big Mac Whopper from member Cheeseburger, Big Mac Whopper. Big Mac Whopper. Big Mac, what I had to share if I had Shit that because we have hamburger historian also the author of Hamburger Dreams joining us right now, Christopher Carozza. Christopher. Thank you for joining us. Are you familiar with that tune? I am familiar with that tune and a number of hamburger to other ways that, by the way, is Big Willie status from the year 2009 hamburgers song is the name of it. I came across that and I said How fitting is that Memorial Day Weekend known is kind of the kickoff for You know the barbecue system for folks who like me, I barbecue year around, but you know, it is the beginning of the season. Yes. Yes, it is. For a lot of people. It certainly is now with Memorial Day weekend. Here we celebrate National Hamburger Day, and there's controversies about when it started. Where it started. Who started it? We're going to get into that in a little bit. And it's also national Beef Burger Day, which started in the year 2020, the National Cattlemen's Beef Association. There, the manager of the beef, It's what's for dinner brand. Founded National Beef Burger Day, so there's plenty to celebrate right. Yeah. Yeah, I think it's funny. They call it beef burger. They're afraid that the pigs they're horning in with hamburger or something. Well, that's part of it. And there's also this whole beyond beef thing that I don't even want to talk about. Right? I'm not. No, I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I I hear it's delicious, but that's not gonna happen yesterday. Yesterday was interviewed by somebody who was eating an impossible girl and and asking me about that is, you know I'm not I'm a hamburger historian, not a fake burger historian. So you know, there you go. That's kind of rude. I'm just saying, so. I see that you are a Yale University graduate. Yes, many, many moons ago. In fact, that's where I first discovered this story. Let me tell you, I grew up. In Hamburg, New York, on Abbott Parkway and everybody all the kids, they're still remember family what it was like growing up. But while we were growing up, we never heard the story that the hamburger was invented in Hamburg, New York. Never heard that story. Uniting discovered that story until I was in New Haven, Connecticut. And when I went down and told my roommate, my classmate Hey, guess what. The hamburger was invented in the city. I was born in. He said. No, it wasn't. It was invented in the city. I was born in in New Haven. And thus began this little battle. This little search for discovery of the truth. Where did the hamburger first come from? Well, well, two years before I actually got into it. All right, Christopher, I gotta stop you right there. People are going to say Well, time out. It started a Hamburg, Germany. Hamburger, right? Yes. No. Well, you know, that's very funny. A lot of people think that because the name Hamburg is obviously Hamburg, Germany and McDonald's for about 50 years. The popular consensus was that it was originated from the 1904 ST Louis world's Fair and Ray Crack was the publicity hound. He did things he zigged when everybody's act just to make news. So that kind of spite everybody he sent a VP. I think it was in 1963 to Hamburg, Germany, with a certificate thanking them for inventing the hamburger when the VP got there and presented it to the mayor, the mayor said. What's this? We had nothing to do with inventing the hamburger, So you know, rather than it going seller, That's what the great karaoke went with. And it actually made papers across the nation through the wire services, So no, it wasn't Hamburg, Germany. In fact, this week as we can get onto later, you know Hamburg, New York, was one of the many Hamburg's in the United States. That was a possibility in the 19 thirties. I think it was Hamburg, North Carolina. There was a story from a paper. They're kind of tongue in cheek saying, Hey, the Hamburg was invented here in Hamburg, North Carolina, But they just said no, Not really. There's about 30, other Hamburg's in the United States that it could have been invented in And of course, Hamburg, New York was listed. It's one of them, but at the time People weren't aware of that particular story, Right? Right. You mentioned Ray Crock. I have to bring up the movie The founder. Have you seen that with Michael Keaton? Yeah, I thought a while ago. So I don't remember too well, incredible movie of just how he Uh, I guess manipulated is kind of the word. But he basically stole it from the McDonald brothers and made it what it is where they didn't have that vision. So if you get a chance, you got to see that movie. So let's get back to ST Louis 1904. It's kind of that's where it gained national recognition. The hamburger did correct. Well again. That's a popular misconception in the research that I did I tried to find newspaper articles. Contemporary newspaper articles that spoke about the single is fair and the Hamburg at the same time. And I really couldn't find any by the Saint by actually by 19 0 Force of same clothes Affair. World's fair was 1904 by 1900. The hamburger was certainly popular enough. Where there was a newspaper in Princeton, Indiana, where the restaurant association, the local Downtown restaurant association, appealed to the city Council to sort of restrict the amount of Hamburg street tire salesman. You know those little food trucks that go around. They were trying to restrict the number of Hamburg salesman outside the restaurant because it was no pun intended eating into their business. So it was popular by 1900. I think it really probably gained massive popularity by the 19 twenties with White Castle really took off, and certainly You look at the you know that the watermark event probably was 1933 when Wimpy said I'd rather pay you Tuesday for a hamburger today. So that became a popular catchphrase. And during the 30 classic hamburger Laure right there. I'm gonna throw a name at you. You tell me more about Louis Lassen. Louis Lassen. Oh, man, So Louis Lassen has Ah lunch wagon. Great story, by the way about how he sets up his lunch wagon, in fact, where lunch wagons come from, and I talk about that in the book, but he sets it up probably made the mid to late mid late 18 nineties. That sort of thing in 1900. This is how his story goes. He had a customer coming. Ham Louis, I'm in a hurry. You gotta give me something really quick. Lou, You know what to do. So you put some ground beef together Friday in his press oven, which is a vertical oven. Very unique. Put it on some toast while you have a hamburger. So that's his hamburger invention story, and in fact that relating come into play Until the sixties, when Yale University threatened to tear down Louise lunch, which was a new haven landmark. It wasn't a historical landmark. At that point, however, because of all the protests about what was going on in the sixties, you know they wanted to save it, so it became a landmark..

"How you doing. I'm doing good doctor livingston. Are you bummed. That if you google your name you're going to get one of the fathers of the constitution right or one of these early founding fathers taking all the real estate yes yeah this ranch of being named dax. There's just not a bunch out there right now your christian name it is. It is yeah. My mom and dad had read a book in the lead character's name was dax. And let's go for it where you from originally. So i was born in lexington kentucky and that's where i spent most of my time but i've lived in six states in four foreign countries. So do you have a favorite my favorite place to visit his turkey. Eastern bowl is my favorite city in the world really has the oslo balance of chaos and order if you will oh okay good. I need you to drill down on the order. Because when i look at it looks very bright. Very frenetic very exciting. And i'm a little bit like that's seems maybe too chaotic. There's a method to the madness because there are places. I've been that are chaotic. They're just chaos deal with it but turkey just seems chaotic like this. Is it comparable to any other form or european country or is it its own thing and that's why you love it. It's its own thing. But i would say it's most comparable to spain. I don't know if you've been disowned ensuring people go out to eat restaurants. Don't open before nine o'clock in the party starts at one. Am and it goes to eight in the morning and spain has a different rhythm. And i think that's the most similar country to turkey and its mediterranean so similarities in the cuisine fish a lot of oil you know and then a crazy history. One of the most historical places you could visit. And that's what i like about it too. So you just hit the number one criteria for whether i like cities or don't and that is rhythm so i'll be places and i'm like yeah it's beautiful. That's a big tall building. That's got all the accoutrements of a great city. But there's just no rhythm happening here and then conversely you go down to austin texas. They don't have a ton to look at. And i'm like oh i can feel the rhythm all around me exactly now. How did you end up at harvard. Like most things in life. It had something to do with my network. So i was in england at the time because i had accepted a position because again our wanderers case. You can't tell i. Don't mind packing up and going to some exotic place. And i got an offer to take over as head of organizational behavior department at the university of sussex and i had my own center and when i was there at the center i discovered my real passion. I like to say. I transitioned from being a gardener to being a florist. When i was just a straight researcher i had my hands in the dirt. Cultivating blooms if you will. And then. when. I was head of the centre. I interacted with metropolitan police. The nhl the national healthcare service all these organizations to sort of give away my flowers if you will and so. I got into the florist business. Like how do you arrange these flowers into the perfect bouquet to give it to people at weddings. Because what's the point staying in a greenhouse if no one ever sees the beauty of your flowers and so you know when i was in england i discovered the passion of sort of giving away the science and then harvard. You know i was giving a talk. And they said well. You know we're holding company of entrepreneurs will let you come here and do whatever you wanna do if you don't want publish anymore will let you be a practitioner. But an academic at the same time and i was like really because most places aren't set up you know. Harvard makes its own rules. So i sort of took on this position to be an academic practitioner which led to this book that we're going to talk about which is sort of trying to distill. The science synthesize it assembly like a bouquet into something that people can digest and use to make profound sustainable change around racism. So that's like my purpose in life. Now where did you get your doctor. Degree because lexington kentucky and then ending up england emceeing already. You're privy to to dramatically different racial structures. And i wonder where you went to college if you maybe even a third and that somehow helps you on your journey just to have witnessed all this stuff firsthand. I went from coast to coast to coast and into the mid west. So basically i started my undergrad tulane university in. I did a study abroad in spain. Which is how. I came to know. Spain fell in love with spain. And i majored in spanish. That was one of my things. And then i went to. Ucla started at the gulf of mexico. Coast number one went to california. Ucla that was number two. And i was getting a phd in romance language and linguistics. So something completely unrelated. But i was looking at themes of oppression in latin american literature and colonialism. So i always been interested in that. In undergrad i did the thesis on a comparative study of racism in brazil and the united states but long story short i was hiking in joshua tree. And there was a psychology student. Who said you know you're doing really cool research. Did you know you could do this in the real world. And i was like no. There's a field where you can actually study racism and discrimination. She's like yeah you know. Why don't you come in audit a class. And that was the beginning of the end. So i left that program. I got a master's. I was a heroin from impeach d. But decided to start all over again in social psychology. So i started at yale. Struggled from coast to coast to coast and my professor at ucla said. Don't go to yale because i got into princeton yale. He said go to ohio state. That's like the best program in the country in what you're doing and as a phd student or go to programs not schools. And i didn't think. I could live in columbus ohio so i went to yale and then i was like you know what i can't live in new haven connecticut so the professor at ohio state would you guys take me and fortunately i had my own funding because i wanted. Nsf fellowship. so. I was able to export that i went to ohio state and worked with one of the top people in the field maryland brewer. Who's like the godmother of social identity.

Hospitals on high alert for new, more contagious COVID-19 strain

"Everywhere are on high alert for that new strain of the coronavirus. Doctors say They don't want people to panic, but they should keep up their precautions. News Nation reporter Eva's America's spoke with an epidemiologist in Connecticut to put it in context. Fight against Cove in 19 intensifies as cases continue to climb and now multiple variants are circulating globally one new variant, which the CDC says emerged in the UK a few months ago. Has been detected here in the U. S not necessarily reasons to sound the alarm but definitely something that we have to watch. We've learned from the CDC viruses constantly change their mutation and new variants of the virus are expected over time. Sometimes new variants emerged and disappear. Other times, new variants emerge and start infecting people to break this all down. We spoke with Dr David Banik, the hospital epidemiologist for Yukon Health. Most of these mutations are not very significant, but sometimes there's another mutations and placed actually change some aspect of the virus. What's been seen so far is that this particular variant of the virus seems to be highly transmissible so it can spread quite easily. What we do know from the CDC is currently there's no evidence he's Variants caused more severe illness or increased risk of death. What we don't know in what scientists are working to figure out is how wide lead these new variants have spread, or how the new variants stiffer. Think this is really high in the need to do this next level of testing. You know that what we call genomic sequencing to really understand when these kinds of changes are occurring on def They're occurring with more frequency and how they're impacting the overall spread of complimenting And as for the covert vaccines being administered across the country, and the world scientific evidence doesn't suggest that the vaccine would be less effective for say, you know, vaccines. Have in effect that allow the immune system to attack multiple different ways against the virus. Esso one change like this wouldn't necessarily impact Thea overall effectiveness of the vaccine. Ava's Maris News Nation, New Haven, Connecticut. Oklahoma is nearing a record high number of hospitalizations more than 1900 people were hospitalized with the virus on New Year's Day. The state had 1083 new confirmed cases yesterday, and with case counts delayed due to the holiday weekend. Health officials believe the number might be higher hospital data compiled by the Kobe tracking project shows more than 125,000 Americans are being treated for Corona virus. In U. S hospitals. As of yesterday. That's actually down slightly from the day before. Hospitalizations have not fallen beneath 100,000 for an entire month, according to Johns Hopkins, more than 20.3 million Americans have tested positive for the virus. Cases rose by 160,000 in the past 24 hours. Deaths are now at 349,000 after an increase of 2000 over the past day.

"But if somebody does extra for you Like the mailman. They deserve something, but it's a once a year thing for me. Yeah, I agree with that. I mean, even my son who works at the Chico's I mean, he's sometimes is sitting in, you know, counting people coming in and out. Sometimes he's At the register, and sometimes once in a while who go outside and, you know, collect the cards. So bring bring stuff out. All these are great job, by the way for kids, the kids who don't do anything and just sit there and expect to get money from their parents. You're not learning anything in life. Send send these damn kids out and give them to responsibility cause now, actually, they learned the value of a dollar. It's wonderful. My kids now understand what things cost. It's great, and I love to hear them from point about how much things cost unlike Thank you Good. But but but I don't think they expect tips. They really don't And there are so many people who do right now and again. I just don't know where what's right and what's wrong. Maybe there is no right or wrong. If you feel like giving somebody something, go ahead, but I think that's a good distinction. No Diane Between a gift and a tip. Tony in white Plains. How are you, Tony? You're on 7 10, WR. Yeah. I mean, I believe in tip, of course, But, you know, I mean, years ago, you would tip the garbage man because they weren't making much money. But today, I mean, you know their sanitation engineer, they probably make more than you do, you know? Plus plus, they get a good pension and all of that, you know the perks and all of that. I don't. I don't agree with that. Well, it depends. Some of them are municipal workers. They sanitation departments and, yes, they're on New York state pensions and they're doing fine and they will be set up for life and they'll move to Florida like everybody else. But then you've got private companies. I have a private company that does my town and you know they don't have government pensions. But to me, they do a great job. Like I said, I could roll up a body and the toes could be showing outside the carpet. There's still still still take it. And they tell me that all the time. Whatever you need, whatever you need, and they're great. I love him and they deserve everything. That I give them. I wouldn't like in the past. I remember growing up in the past what we used to do, Because this is what was expected. You didn't give them money. You put a six pack of beer out there, and that is what they will. Apparently, that's what they wanted me well, there like that. They must be dead drunk by the end of the week. And they're like, Oh, I want it was a couple bucks, but that's what we used to do back then. But times have changed. And, you know people people expected Bill in New Haven, Connecticut. You're on 7 10 WR. Hi, Bill. Hey, how you doing? I look at a kind of old school. I think any time a person is in service to you like there's a big difference between serving your coffee, which is something you can afford and enjoy. And if they're making that experience if they're going a little bit above and beyond, because you know the service industry, the the waiters, waitresses, cab drivers, they're the ones that are doing More than that, then this scene if you can perceive that at all you know, in terms of good service friendly face a friendly word. I'll just say too much. No, no, that's fine. It's the same thing like, you know, Taxi drivers. You know you're giving them a tip. Uber drivers lift drivers, you know when it first started That's what was supposed to be. The highlight is that it would go right on your credit card. You didn't have the pressure if you will of leaving a tip, especially for getting a I've been in these cars, some of them They're just like filthy. And they don't even know where they're going, and I'm supposed to add a tip. And you know there's a social pressure that you're you're supposed to do that. I mean, I guess that's you know an individual choice, but I don't. I can't remember a time when I didn't leave a tip. Part of it is I wanted to or other times I felt like I had to. But either way Um, you know, it's completely entirely up to you. So I just wanted to be Oh, tell you about this. This story. I want to tell you before about trying to be like a man. So I have a boiler in my house. And It broke. We were out to dinner like a week and a half ago. We come home and it's not firing up. And you know, the house is getting cold was one of those cold nights. So I go downstairs and trust me. You know, I might look the part with a flashlight and maybe a hammer, but I don't play the part. Well, my wife is better at this stuff than I am. So I go down here and I'm looking around like I know what to look for. I don't know what the hell I'm looking for. I don't even know how to turn the damn thing on anyway. We called the company they come And the guy was supposed to service the boiler. And he actually there was a break in the water glass gauge. If you know what I'm talking about, shows the water level and there was there was kind of busted. He didn't have the part to fix it, nor did that, Nor does he do that. So he basically gave me a bill of several $100 to quote service the boiler and then he left. And we've got a Cold house. So the next day, I'm like a Google it. I'm looking it up on YouTube. It really isn't that hard to fix. So I then go and buy this part, but the part needs to be cut. It's an inch bigger than it needs to be. And I don't have a little ask who has a glass cutter in their house, So I go to Home Depot. They don't have it. They don't sell it. I go to another place. They don't have it. They don't sell it. They finally sent me to this place in Elmsford. I go to this place and I swear I think I'm on candid camera or I'm a guinea pig. And they just laughing at my expense Because I go there. I asked them to cut this. They're like no We don't cut it because if we cut it, it'll break. Meanwhile, it's an $8 part. So they bring out the glass cutter. They put it on and say Here you do it. And literally. There's like three people behind me online and there's five people behind the counter and they're watching me try to do something I can't do. And after, like, five minutes I'm like, Can you just cut this and like no So I put the damn thing down and I leave..

Young Republicans Have Something to Say

"As a seventh generation georgian. I feel strongly about local politics. But i also feel strongly about having candid conversations across the aisle so john. I started this conversation agreeing that we can disagree and i think gino was okay with that i enjoy having conversations with people who i don't always see eye to eye like we have disagreements. I prefer those conversations so much more than i do. The ones where we're all saying the same thing. In addition to being a policy consultant. For senator kelly. Leffler janelle appears regularly on tv to discuss politics and runs a construction business with her husband. You're an entrepreneur. You're the former deputy state director of the georgia republican party. Your co founder of speak georgia and i know you from your bipartisan weekly. Tv show. you're a panelist on atlanta fox. Five the georgia gang and i am from atlanta georgia. Mostly sandy springs georgia. That's the suburbs And i was born in new haven connecticut and we moved to north carolina when i was younger and then from north carolina. I moved to georgia. So i claim georgia. I've been here now for over ten years so in this georgia has definitely raised me so I definitely claimed georgia. And what i do right now. I am a media personality. And i do political commentating. A large part of who. I am is built in all of the mistakes that i made. You know you had said something to the effect of you know you feel like you are a combination of your mistakes and near learnings can you. Can you walk me through a formative experience you had when you were young. That you feel was like an aha moment for you. Yes oh what. A lot of people don't know is that i was raised in a hebrew household as hebrew. Israelites you know. We were taught that we are direct descendants from of the people israelites. in the bible So you know you have the jewish community and then you have the hebrew community. So i i like to say hebrews or simply black jews It's much deeper for us but for the sake of explaining it So we kept the holy days we didn't i didn't we didn't have like christmas or easter that stuff only the holy days we didn't even have hanukkah so because it wasn't tally a holy day. Right so i i like to say. I'm half jewish so you get it you get it Yeah def and our family was like you get one night of hannukah like yourself right so i think you know this is something is really small but i hated it when i was a child but now i understand the beauty of it where we didn't celebrate christmas and as a child that felt really lonely but as i got older it kind of prepared me to be the oddball out and it made me comfortable like so i was in malcolm. Glad while training hours ten thousand hours by the time you graduate high school exactly exactly and we didn't wear pants so i was like the girl in the skirt who never wore pants who debt. And you know. Celebrate any other holidays and It was just like training and being your own person and values based. I exactly exactly you know. We were taught that our hope is in. God are there's something greater apart in this world that has nothing to do with politics or what we see in the natural it kind of puts you in a position where you feel a boat to Be who you are. And and not me the acceptance of a lot of people in order to do it so that was a really formative time for me in my childhood and i think as am i became an adult. Something that was really really form to me is that i got married twice before having parents who were marry for now thirty eight years and they were the first each other's first boyfriend girlfriend they never dated anyone else and their parents are right so you had that ends example of a lot of laughter.

Politicians, Constance Baker Motley

"Hello from Wonder Media Network I'm Jenny Kaplan and this is encyclopedia Britannica. Today's politicians but most of her life fighting for civil rights, she put her life at risk to change the course of American history, but she's often left out of history books. Let's talk about Constance Baker Motley. Constance Baker Motley was born on September fourteenth nineteen, forty one in new haven connecticut she was one of twelve children born to working class immigrant parents from the West indies. Constance. Was a bright child who grew up attending integrated schools and quickly fell in love with reading. She didn't learn much about black history in school. But what she did learn about civil rights leaders inspired her she decided she wanted to become a lawyer, but constance couldn't afford higher education. She took a job as a maid for a while before moving on to work for the National Youth Administration an organization focused on providing work an educational opportunities for young adults. Constance was giving a speech at a local community center one evening when her oratory skills impressed a wealthy white philanthropist. He, offered to pay for constants college tuition. So in nineteen, forty, one constance began attending college at Fisk University in Nashville. She later wrote that the train ride down to Tennessee was the first time she experienced overt racism and Jim Crow laws after being forced to ride in a broken down segregated train car, it was a perspective changing moment for constance two years into her attendance at Fisk Constance transferred to New York University and finished her bachelor's degree in economics.

She also helped protect the right to peaceful protests and opened up parks for. Black. Americans. She did all that despite the sexism and racism personally experienced during her legal career. Some judges actually turned their backs on her and refused to hear her speak. But Constance didn't let others biopsies bar her from success. Her work made her a key player in the civil rights movement and she even occasionally represented Dr. Martin? Luther. King Junior.

Free speech and the struggle against misinformation ahead of 2020 election

"Last week, The New York Post published a potentially damaging story about Hunter Biden, son of the Democratic presidential nominee. Based on emails, The Post said, were provided by former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani and originally harvested from a laptop computer left in a Delaware repair shop. There were enough questions about the authenticity of the emails that most mainstream media declined to publish the story, but it's the kind of content that Khun spread like wildfire on Social media. In a remarkable move Twitter on Wednesday Band users from sharing links to the story because it said the emails may have been hacked and contained private information. It reversed course two days later after Republicans accused Twitter of censorship. But the episode illustrates a question our guest, Emily Bazelon, has been thinking about in an age when questionable, Perhaps even fabricated content can sweep through the digital world unchecked. Does our traditional commitment to unfettered free speech still serve democracy. And the cover story for this week's New York Times Magazine, Basil on surveys the impact that lies and conspiracy theories sometimes promoted by foreign actors can have on our political discourse. And she explores how other countries think differently about free speech and its relationship to a healthy democracy. Emily Bazelon is a graduate of the Yale Law School and a journalist. She's a staff writer for the New York Times Magazine and the Truman Capote fellow for Creative Writing at Yale Law School. She's also the author of two books. She joins us from her home in New Haven, Connecticut. Emily Bazelon welcome back to fresh air. Thanks so much for having me you open your piece with a story that began making the rounds some months back, among right wing voices on the Internet that there was a plan by the forces of Joe Biden to stage a coup to take over the government in connection with the November election. First of all, what was the basis of this claim? Great. So this is ahh concocted claim and the sort of colonel at the center of it was a project called the Transition Integrity Project, a group of about 100 academics and journalists and pollsters and former government officials and former campaign the staff staffers. They started meeting over the summer to kind of game out various scenarios for the November election, and so they were basically testing American democracy in the event that President Trump wins in the event that vice President Biden winds To see in various scenario is what could happen. And in the event, there's a contestant result in a long, nasty count. Yes, exactly especially in the event if there's a contestant result in litigation and other possibilities, and so in one of their several scenarios, Biden wins the popular vote but loses the Electoral College. And so in that hypothetical case they imagined the Democrats would get desperate. And they might consider encouraging California and the Pacific Northwest to threaten to secede in exchange for pressuring Republicans to expand the size of the Senate. So Rosa Brooks, who was one of the organizers of this project, She's a law professor at Georgetown. She published an essay where she mentioned this threat to succeed in one sentence in an essay in The Washington Post. On the next day, you see someone named Michael Anton's, a former national security adviser to President Trump. He has an article called The Coming CU Question. Mark and based on Rosa Brooks is characterization of what the transition integrity project was doing. He starts saying that Democrats are laying the groundwork for a revolution and then you see that article take off in extremist online communities. There is AH podcast maker named Dan Bongino, who's a big trump supporter. He makes videos about it. One of them has the tag. They are telling you what they are going to do exclamation point his videos pull in millions of views. Then you see the story. My great toe, a right wing website called Revolver News Revolver. News starts to spin up the idea that Norm Eisen, who participated in the transition Integrity project and is a longtime Democratic lawyer in Washington. That he's at the center of this supposed coup. And from there, Tucker Carlson feature someone talking about this concocted made up story on his show. And then you see it just go viral on social media and get picked up by lots of groups, including, like a county Republican organization in Oregon, So it is Perfect kind of story because it pulls in both traditional media in the form of Fox and also social media. And then you see President Trump get involved. He tweets in praise of Revolver news, and then he tweets quote the November 3rd election result may never be accurately determined, which is what some want. And that's a kind of typical dark, slightly vague, foreboding kind of warning from President Trump that further perpetuates this coup narrative. And then Trump later retreat. Someone talking about a coup with regard to Nancy Pelosi. So you see from this hypothetical project that was really meant to be a kind of academic exercise about the election. This whole sat of conspiracy theories on the right that get a lot of play in the media on social media, and then from the president

"I mean undoubtedly take place on a daily basis. It's just that you know we happen to have video of it And these two instances The the the reality of racism is is there but in terms of the way that we look at policy to address not necessarily racism but racial disparities is is. Where are we in terms of that? Well I think you know like every black and Brown man. I know The Amy Cooper incident sent a chill my spine. Because I've had my own versions of that experience for my teenage years in New Haven Connecticut To the workplace as as an adult and and I think the Amy Cooper incident You know makes plain. The reason is with us which is certainly a point that I I make in my book and make everywhere I can frankly and there is a need and there remains a need for antidiscrimination policies. Which even as such antidiscrimination policies can't prevent someone like Amy Cooper from doing despicable thing that she did But they can certainly have some impact on people's experiences in the workplace. They're going to have an impact on people's experience In schools I can have an impact on people's who can afford to buy a home and given community Whether or not they have access zone so we absolutely positively no ifs ands or buts about it need for housing legislation which we have anti place and and schools discrimination to have and I wouldn't have a problem building on that. But if our in game is to mitigate but me to mitigate out for game is to eliminate Something known as Black Poverty. I'm not sure how we would do that without eliminating in America for everyone and there are a lot of reasons that I'm not sure how we do that. The first and most obvious. It's just Matt Black. Twelve point eight percent of the total population I don't think there's ever been a time that twelve point eight percent of a population that's comprised disproportionately working class and poor people has ever won anything in a democracy Right I mean you have to have some sort of coalition in order to for for you know that's larger than than that group to win anything and that's how it's been obviously emancipation and that will be as long as blacks aren't fifty plus percent of the population So if you so. That's what first issues the other issue though that's worth paying attention to is the limitations of antidiscrimination policy as a vehicle for upper mobility right. I absolutely have been beneficiary of Anti Discrimination Policy Right. My parents were black middle class professionals. Who bought their first home? I believe in one thousand nine hundred seventy two. That's about four years after the Civil Rights Act of nineteen sixty eight made it possible for black people to be homeowner's both my parents were the beneficiaries of affirmative action which open economic opportunities for them and I- downstream for them Emma beneficiary of it. But if you look at what what? Anti Discrimination Policy has done in the absence of a class agenda blacks between one thousand nine hundred sixty and twenty sixteen have actually moved open in relative terms With respect to black household income black household income in nineteen sixty. I WanNa say it was in twenty could per percentile by twenty six hundred twenty eighteen. Whatever it was the thirty fifth percentile So blessed moved up. Why didn't that eliminate the racial wage gap right or the welcome because they're earning power of workers out of the bottom eighty or ninety percent of workers had either remained stagnant or decline? And so blacks moved up. Yes but they moved up In the context of decline for working people so the real benefits aren't readily apparent right. The real benefit through their relative increase in it's a substantial increase the earning power for believe the the thirty percents. We're we're blacks. Are these were before coke. Nineteen and dropped thirty percent since nineteen sixty eight Wife's moved up not as far and that concept and be moved up from the fifty fifth percentile to fifty seven percent house so they maintain relative advantage over black but they also continue to experience a decline. If we just focus on disparities then what an ending disparities in this context that's tantamount to demanding You know That's enough to demand a higher birth on a sinking ship rob. That will certainly stave off drowning. But eventually we're still gonNA drop. It's a bit of a race to the bottom type of situation. Yes yes and we'd have to stop the race to the bottom because it just not enough to move up in context of overall decline. How I mean. How important is this is the Relationship between race in capitalism to the argument. You're making because it I mean it. It seems to me it's it's basically just You know the the that that that the argument you are making Is that we're we have really to in many respects two separate problems And one is The disparity may be a function of of racism. That exists. You know I mean because presumably That That woman Central Park Cooper. It's not just you know if I if she's savvy enough to leverage race in that way and frankly I I'm not a clinical psychologist. I'm not. I'm not a clinician. But but I mean there's a certain sociopath involved in that if she's willing to basically you know Swat by And leverage the fact that he's black because she.

It occurred on Friday June fourteenth two thousand nineteen at a sold out death cab for Cutie concert at the College Street Music Hall in New Haven and I was pushed my way up front. Two general admission standing about ten feet from the stage and I began to feel very woozy and started seeing spots and I've only passed out twice in my life but I knew that I was probably go down so I was of course mashed in this crowd. It was loud. The music's going the crowds going. It was a great show but I had to get out of there so I tried to make my way to the right hand side. That was the closest I could get to and all of a sudden someone stepped out of the crowd. And Said are you okay and I said I am definitely not okay and they said grab my arm and I did. I grabbed her arm. And that's the last thing I remember. I woke up outside of the venue on the set of steel stairs. Sort of in the smoking section two security guards staring down at me wondering what the heck it happened just passed out because they hadn't eaten all day anyway. The point is I wanted to share this story because I would always like to extend a thank you to the person who extended their arm and their kindness that night because they certainly didn't have to. It was a very kind gesture.

Representatives had the school respectfully disagrees with divestment activists over how to confront climate change. Naturally naturally the students were thrilled. The administration allowed this to go on by the way the Yale authorities should have immediately arrested everybody because that is just a public act of criminality that had been five hundred kids rushing the field to protest on behalf of not aborting babies. They'd been arrested within five seconds and wouldn't get the large cheers. Officials was asked protesters to leave very nicely. They always have to be very delicate with these kids. Another one hundred students unaffiliated with divest movement walked onto the field to join them. Some vans boots had the protest test humiliated the schools because it did chuck crummy sixty eight.

What you saw is a bunch of Democrats? During this thing advocates divestment have expressed impatience.

"All right everyone were almost out of time for today's show. But we've got one more listener dilemma to work through this time in written form. That is correct is an email mail from Emma next month rights. I will be a first time manager. I WANNA get your take on two aspects of my new role I Emma says I work with the government and the department. I'll be overseeing does work that's important but dry and repetitive reviewing files and applications. And the like. I am wondering how to motivate employees and improve their satisfaction in an environment that doesn't allow for much creativity or quote fund unquote second. I worked with an entirely different governmental department and I'm not even familiar with the software databases. They used the woman who's going to be my managers. said she doesn't want me to get training and what they actually do just oversee oversee the HR side of things. So I have major imposter syndrome as I step into a management role in. It's definitely worsened. By the fact that I have very little knowledge of what the team actually actually does. So let's take this one by one first off Emma. Congratulations so exciting for a new job. Yes time manager. We like it great. So the first issue how how to motivate employees and their satisfaction. Yes here's here's the deal in my experience over a lot of years. I'd say that satisfaction doesn't really come from fun. It comes from feeling like your work is valued so that means having a boss in which case this is you. Ah who treat you with respect and colleagues who have your back with whom you share mutual respect so think about that not so much about like. How do we make filing things more fun you? Yeah you don't need to have a parade. No filing parade would look like and I like just to get. You started the best book I have ever read on. This subject is drive. Live by Daniel Pink and the subtitle is the surprising truth. About what motivates us. I totally recommend you read it. There excerpts online you can also listen to the audiobook and spoiler alert. What what he tells you? Is that what people really want from their job. What motivates them is a feeling of mastery autonomy Johnny and purpose? So when you're thinking about what you need to give your team think about that. Can you give them greater feelings of mastery autonomy and purpose and it's it's interesting because when I first read this email the first thing I thought of as a moment where I felt like I or you know others provided vitus fun and in an otherwise not fun environment I just hearken back to making a podcast one night. We're all working super late at night. Was One of those all nighters and I. I suddenly decided that I was going to start an ask me anything on our facebook page in the middle of the night and it was basically like asked me or the staff anything you want from our listeners owners so we would periodically take a break from our work and see what people had asked and a lot of. It was ridiculous silly stuff because these people were also up at two. Am they weren't thinking extre- they're asking us what our favorite cocktails were like silly stuff. And at first I was thinking well I could say to 'em you know do something like that but i. I just suddenly realized that the reason why that was so successful because it did really get us all motivated and it may take me and it like kind of energized us. It's not because it was fun necessarily but I think it goes to those three things. Well at least one of those three things which has purpose there was an audience out there that we were being reminded of that making this podcast podcast four people and they were real people and we were interacting with them and suddenly was like. Oh Yeah. We're doing this for a reason. The show doing so. Put all of you back in touch with your purpose. That is correct so you think it's about fun but it's nice about purpose the purpose or Autun you also have a lot of autonomy in the middle of the night trip good. That's good too. Yeah in touch with your feeling of Oh we can do whatever we want. Absolute unsupervised because bosses go to sleep. It turns out. That's that is is the best part of being a boss is sleeping. Okay now the second thing you asked about is knowing how the software works. What I'm about to tell you a tale that may be totally apocryphal? But the growing up my parents told us this story over and over again. Oh do tell it was about a famous swim coach at Yale. Who did not actually know how to swim and both both my parents were from New Haven Connecticut so we got a lot of stories about things that happened Anyway I think back on it now and that's probably a total total live. Yeah what are the chances that the swim coach at Yale did not know how to swim. That's not a good vetting process at Yale but it did teach me that you could lead something without actually knowing how to do it yourself so I think I internalized that and as a result result I've had a lot of jobs I had no idea what the people underneath me were real like how they did what they did so it might have been a myth but it did have a real impact on your list so I say that to you you say just think about a swim coach. Who doesn't know how to swim and you can be at least as good as good luck? Emma just remember. Nobody really knows what they're doing. I think is kind of the take that is.

I'm sure Joanie knows there's, here's a way to get free food at Taco Bell. Going there and water. You know, coke, something for a dollar, and take the receipt table, you pull up something called tell the bell. Yeah, I have an icon for it. So it's a little survey takes a couple of minutes as the store number, which have off the receipt. You take it back up. There says on it also says, would you like to recognize one of our employees that are bad? So look at the girl's name, you know you got the coke and tell her hey, Kelly or what have you. I put you on telev- ill where you want, and they'll give you nachos a milk shake. Stuff like that. I don't condone that Russ. That's, that's neat little scam. But they want you to take the survey. So they give you free food. All right. What do you think about that? Johnny morally. What do you think? I think I think Russ is the luckiest guy alive. I mean, wherever he goes women are fawning over him. They're giving them free tacos. I mean, I wanna I guess I need to be more like Ross, or I need to move the Gainesville, we need to swim in Russ's, wake. I think is the, the moral the story I had one fast foods game. I don't know if it still works. But it was KFC. They moved to segment it. So if you got the two piece chicken meal, longoria through the drive through, they had portioned off dishes, and so they put the fried chicken and the big piece, and then, you know, the tray and then you're mashed potatoes, and your coleslaw and the other two slots for your side dishes, seawater me, get the two piece breast and wing meal, mashed potatoes, slob they give it to you and then actually be came up with the scam and because they sections in there. They've already put the thing when they gave you. Oh, no. I wanted mashed potatoes and MAC and cheese and they're like they're not going to scoop out the coleslaw from the tray that they're put in there. So they just hand you third side for free. Again.

"Lived in New Haven Connecticut for stretch, I didn't really enjoy it there. But just kind of weird whimsical thing happened one Friday night where a lot of pizza places ran out of cheese. The odor of one such pizza place. Kept trying to like push off pizzas that had no cheese on them to people as they wouldn't notice. Would of course, people noticed and began to spy. That's writer Nieve directive this month were celebrating national poetry month. The thirty five year old Ohio native also takes inspiration from using and the New York City poetry scene in the sixties to kick off our series of door. Keep reads from his poem glamour on the west streets, silver over everything. I love the heat for how it separates the desire for touch from the practicality of it. If it gets too hot for love like it did for Mookie and Tina we're all in our own sinking islands anyway. There is no cheese. Miss town anymore in what could be worse than the fraction of a dream behind every door. You crawl to it is Friday. And surely some of my people are praising the fresh coin in their Bank accounts in what a tragedy to spend it on a half finished freedom in the argument below has poured out into the streets and the waiting masses. And I imagine this is no longer over cheese. But over every mode of on the fulfilled promise, the cluster of thins still stuck to a body fresh from the waters of.

Marijuana Lollipop May Have Triggered Man's Heart Attack

"So the authors do believe that this large dose of THC, which is the second component of marijuana. Put a sudden unexpected strain on the heart. It then increases heart rate cause hallucinations anxiety, therefore, causing blood pressure to rise at more heart rate, going up stress hormone catch a cold Amine got released all of that could affect on Now. This new case is one of many reports two thousand fourteen there was a young man in the UK at a heart attack after smoking marijuana. We've also talked about I've had this on my show. I've thought about this where there was a link between cardiomyopathy and heart failure. The younger the patients the word risk. They are two sudden, death and heart failure to marijuana. There was a study a couple years ago Lincoln wanted to transient ventricular regional ballooning. TV are be which is a ballooning part of the heart muscle. Not allowing it to pump right, hence heart failure. So this isn't the first time in two thousand sixteen. There was a study out of Saint Louis university hospital and found bear wanted to cause stress. Cardiomyopathy that is also a ballooning. And drugs can do that as well being sorrowful during a death? And being in grieving could also cause that, but unfortunately, this TV Rb is something that we are seeing more and more times linked to marijuana. Now, the reason why people, you know, people will not believe this height because adopted I hope wait a sec marijuana's been around for decades. And now that is legal is were hearing it could cause heart problems. I don't buy it. We should have heard about a decades ago. Well, yes, I agree. If there was a link we should have heard about it in the sixties and seventies. But think about me when I was an ER dog I asked about drug use. But if I had a guy with a heart attack or you couldn't speak too much. And he said no to that answer really quickly. I'm not really gonna go that much farther. I'm going to address his heart attack. Then I'm going to get him admitted. The transfer him some more, and then that's the end of that. And I don't go into the marijuana history. So before the legalisation of marijuana if I was in an acute care setting. I didn't really spend that much time on oh you smoke marijuana. There was a link because again, I had to get the guy stabilize again transferred. So it wasn't me. Now, what about the cardiologists could the cardiologists done it? He got the cardiologists all these years could have done it. But again their job is the heart. You know, if somebody denies that they smoke marijuana. Not everybody's going to get a drug test. They have a right to privacy. So I'm sure the average person when marijuana was illegal said no last thing, they want is the police coming because they admitted to have done something illegal. So my guess is many of the heart attacks that we have had. You know that might have occurred in pot smokers. There was always the leak it just it wasn't really publicized. So the interrelation of smoke. Maybe worse that edible. We're still trying to figure that out. People are asking me is safer to eat it than smoke. It. For the most part. I'd say yes, I don't like people bothering the lungs and making the lungs do things that that they weren't designed to do like filtering out cannabis antiques. However, people who smoke could get away with less dose that edible. And so what this lollipop they're making more. They're having multiple servings of THC, I don't understand why they would do that with the lollipop because I mean, you lick a lollipop it's already kind of dirty. You're supposed to throw it out. But apparently a lot of these lollipops are designed for multiple licks just doesn't make sense. So the history of the lollipop. This is interesting. They say the oldest precursor of today's lollipop this been reported by groovy candies dot com. Was from ancient Africa in Asia. Archaeologists believe that Chinese eras any all produce fruits and not confections that they candied in Honey, which serves as a preservative and inserted stakes into making it to make it easier to eat during the middle ages. They said the nobility would often eat boiled sugar with the aid of sticks or handles in the seventeenth century sugar became more available in Europe. And so the English enjoyed boiled sugar candy treats and inserted sticks into them. So in America, they think maybe maybe before the civil war, but this is George Smith of New Haven, Connecticut. Claim to be the first one vent the modern style lollipop and that was nineteen o eight. He used the idea of putting candy on a stick to make it easier to eat initially lollipops were soft rather than hard candy. Oh, I would prefer a soft candy. And then with automation they were able make multiple lollipops. Apparently in one thousand nine hundred they can make twenty four hundred lollipops per hour. And then in nineteen twelve of Russian immigrants Samuel born invented a machine that inserted six county. So then they can make a lot now lollipop beans tongue slap. Apparently, that's according to linguists, and they believe that one Dan street vendors were the ones that coined the name. Some suggest lollipop maybe a word of Roman or Roman origin related to the Roma tradition of selling coffee apples on a stick. I guess red. Apple is called lolly father. That's really

"Or eight four four side talk. We have a call here here from Jim who's calling from New Haven, Connecticut. Hello there. Jimmy aren't science Friday. All right. Thanks for taking my call. I guess the only you're the person who made the last call may the point I wanted to make. So actually, I am a physician. I also have an academic appointment and I worked in big pharma. And what I wanted to point out is the pharmaceutical company has very stringent obligations in terms of legal requirements that are turning make us report every single nickel. We give to physician under any circumstance, and I can tell you with informer, the lawyers are all over this in terms of oversight and make sure we do that say within the pharmaceutical industry. Jim the lawyers are making sure you do this. Do you hear some of what Katie and Eric talking about though that you know, nondisclosure journals is a big problem in your field. Jim. Maybe maybe Jim has left us. Katie. I'm wonder if you can maybe pick up on what Jim said to me he's saying that that farm is policing itself. As far as making sure that people who work on both sides of the fence are disclosing as much as possible. Right. And and you know, as I mentioned there and enacted as well. There's the open payments system, which is a relatively new federal database where the drug companies are required to report their payments to physicians, but one thing that came up in our reporting was a pretty big gap, especially in the area of cancer research. But a lot of other areas of research is well, which is that a lot of these these doctors are doing work with startups that don't have any approved products yet. So they're doing early research sometimes clinical studies, you know, everything that you would need to do to get a drug to market, but they don't have those require those reporting requirements before they haven't approved drug. So there's a whole host of companies, you know, and that are that don't have to report this. And and that's where when I mentioned that there was some additional digging required. You know, that's what I was talking about is is is there's you know, dozens of companies out there that are that are startups in that are that are put in drugs on the market, but the don't have to. Report this Eric I think it's probably important to to take a step back a little bit. And really explain why this matters to people. I mean, what what is the problem of conflict of interest of the type that view? And Katie you're talking about two two people who go to the doctor people who are worried about the medical system. Sure. So for physicians, the primary interest of physicians is the health and welfare of their patients and secondary interest like making money or getting free dinners or being a consultant with drug company have the potential to change what doctors do and the behavior that these relationships changes, it changes their prescribing behaviors it's associated with a change in prescribing behaviors research has been on tons of a pile of research, so big if it fell on you would kill you to show that in fact, a gifts from drug companies to doctors are associated with increased prescribing of that company's products and services. Research and the opioid industry in opiates as shown just for just this week that in fact, what matters is not really how much money doctors get paid. But the number of gifts and payments. They get and what happens is that. When doctors get paid by companies, for example, that sell opioids the increased the prescribing of opiates, and this research that just came out. It's fantastic because it then looked at regional differences in rates of overdose. From opioids and found that it was associated. And that's the real key. Here is that doctors financial conflicts of interest can influence the drugs and devices that patients get and that can have important health consequences for the patient. I'm John Kostecki. And this is science Friday from WNYC studios and Eric Campbell. I'd like to continue on that especially because the opioid epidemic in America is such a big concern to so many people, you're. Saying that this most recent study looks at the places where opioids are the biggest problem you're seeing doctors who are actually over prescribing in those places, and it is fascinating that it's not about people taking hundreds of thousands of dollars..

One more time we are in New Haven on the campus of Yale University. And we are inside the belly of the famed wail Ingles arena. Also known as the whale here. The home of Yale bulldog hockey once in a while Sacred Heart plays a home game Yale once in a while happens today for air force and Sacred Heart. The falcons hoping that change of scenery can help them out a little bit force lost yesterday's game. By a score of three one the falcons since coming off the Christmas break and starting the second half of the season gave taller to two and three very uncharacteristic for an air force hockey team this time of the season and yesterday they did not play. Well, and that's where he won lot. Yeah. I really didn't add all J winless in their last four games air force has just six goals in the last four games as we know that that's not nearly enough defensively. The falcons have had a few problems. Billy Crystal Palace has been terrific with the falcons need to find a way to to score a few more goals. Like, you said, maybe a change of scenery. Maybe a change of day you're playing on a Sunday afternoon. The falcons were beaten the season on Sunday. They beat the MSCI state in their only other game. So maybe that'll be a little more motivation for the center Steve fell after last night's game. Yesterday afternoon's game I should say if you were listening Frank serotonin spent a long time in the locker room with the team. In fact, he did not make the post game show for his usual post game interviews he spent such a long time talking to his team that's been around this hockey came a long long time. We went down after packing up from the press box to the force locker room other than a loss in the NCAA tournament regular. Season wise that was the most somber airforce locker room that I've ever been around. And I don't think we've ever been on the bus before the team gets on the bus. Usually by the time. We get off the broadcast of pack. Everything up there waiting for us before we leave the arena, we walk downstairs the guys that just come out of the locker they were stretching hadn't even shower yet. So it was a it was a long meaning they had a lot to talk about. This team's gotta figure out where it's gonna go. That's the biggest part of it. They've got a big senior class. They've got seven guys six of those seniors are wearing a letter three of them aware three or where the as and the liquor. They've gotta figure out where they want to go. And at some point they've got to get it going in the right direction. We're already into the the second week of January to go. Okay. This team is going to figure it out at some point. But when is it going to happen at the road doesn't get any easier the Sacred Heart team, they've got some good athletes. They're playing with some confidence right now, they got to the air force.

I'm glad you waited. Welcome to the program. Hi, thanks for having me on. I just wanted to make a point home. One time. I didn't even do this over Amazon's gonna happen to leave a scathing review on Amazon of a of a product that I bought I you know, because I was very unhappy with it. And and I happen to if you're gonna leave a scathing review, you're really dissatisfied. Do yourself a favor and. Factor of that product. Because that's that's what I did. And they not only replaced my products. Shut me model to on top of it like an updated model. Okay. Like two for one. You got a good response on that. When Steve thank you. Thanks very much for the call from New Haven. Nicole just got a couple of minutes left here. If I'm curious if Amazon went back to allowing sponsored comment with content with that be a step in the right direction with all of this. It's really hard to say the reason why they banned incentivized reviews in the first place is because report by review meta a site that analyzes Amazon listings found that incentivized reviews were not unbiased at all. And in fact, they were much more positive than non incentivized reviews. I don't think that's necessarily a step in the right direction. But but I think that if Amazon did crackdown on the sort of the more obvious review manipulation like, for example, when customers update their negative reviews after receiving a free product, or when we're reviews don't even aren't related to the products that's being sold on that listing whatsoever. That I think that could help the issue Chris in Atlanta, Georgia wanna get you in here. Just have a couple of seconds left, which your question. Chris. Find out what the validity or what the the validity? They see in video reviews taking hold in the future. You think there'd be more weight to those than just purely post? Good question. Chris. Thanks, nicole. I think video reviews are a great solution to to this issue of shopping online and not being able to touch try and see the products that you're actually buying and if you watch video review on mute and just watch out someone's handling a product, I think that's a really good way to to decide whether or not you need that product for yourself. So it's up now leave us with your final thoughts. Here. What have you learned in all this reporting?

Sit in a shed near the highlights family home in cal-. -fornia if the family can't sell them to a museum or a collector, their fate might be the scrap pile. So that was story producer Pedro Mendez. Telling us the story of the sensory, which seems sort of amazing. I don't know if I'm reading too much into it. But it it it seems like one of those great technologies way ahead of its time. But kind of changed everything I hope some some tech industry. Guru buys one in put it in their house just to you know, maintain it for for posterity because that's just it's a really cool project. I think so too. So we're now jumping into to modern times, and I'm going to get on a plane and go to New Haven Connecticut to the university of New Haven. Okay. Where at the virtual reality lab, they have come up with what I I've been told is a very interesting virtual reality hack that could have some pretty dire consequences. So I'm I'm sort of flying blind on this one. So we'll see how so good luck. As always. All right. Thank you. Bruce. So we're here at the university of New Haven. I'm gonna get introduced yourself, sir. I'm Ebrahim Guilio or also known as a big Ely. I'm the founder of the research group and user, no long introduction. Peter KC graduate researcher. Okay.

What what is friends weekly analyzing mean? So we into sip-it that in the future. There's going to be more crimes that happen in virtual reality. But the idea is okay. If a crime does happen in voor involving virtual reality, what evidence can you recover or how can you reconstruct exactly what events took place, so that you can prove or disprove something. That's fascinating. And so the demo iphone down here to see I'm dying to know, what it is before you tell me, though, I wanna know what led you to to thinking about this kind of stuff. So we're basically just thinking about what they could possibly go wrong. You know for someone that's in VR specifically things that are related to immersion. You know? So like, what can we take advantage of given someone's completely there is is complete concealed? What? Kinds of things might they be volant vulnerable to maybe like obstacles in the room or stuff like that. And like what kind of privacy issues?

I think after this you might reconsider having one of these just laying around your house. Okay. So you're not gonna tell me what's going to happen. Okay. I figured okay.

Why Is the Winchester House Built So Strangely?

"Most of us want to get home construction over as soon as possible, we worry about the expense and complained about the inconvenience but four Sarah Winchester construction was a way of life for thirty eight years. She had construction going twenty four hours a day at her home in San Jose, California. This was no ordinary construction job, though, the house is an oddball labyrinth of rooms that at one point reached seven stories. It's filled with weird things like stairs and doors. The go nowhere. Not to mention the ghosts. Sarah Winchester didn't start out looking for this kind of project born Sarah party in eighteen thirty nine. She was one of the social stars of New Haven, Connecticut, although she only stood four feet ten inches. She was known for her beauty and sparkling personality in eighteen sixty two Sarah, married William Winchester, who has the air of the Winchester, repeating arms company, the company had developed the repeating rifle a gun that was easy to reload and fired rapidly at a rate of one shot. Every three seconds. The gun was used by northern troops in the civil war. And it was also known as the gun that won the west the young couples started a family in eighteen sixty six but their daughter any died in infancy and Mr. Winchester died of tuberculosis fifteen years later distraught over these losses, MRs Winchester, visited a medium for spiritual guidance. The medium told her that the Winchester family had been struck by terrible curse and was haunted by the ghosts of all those killed by the Winchester rifle their spirits were seeking vengeance. And the only way to appease them was to build a house for them. But the ghosts had another request that the house never be completed never stopped building. The medium told MRs Winchester, or you will die. We can't know exactly how she interpreted this advice. She might have thought the spirits would get her if she stopped or she might have seen the continuous construction as a path to eternal life. Mrs Winchester, headed west to build a home for herself and her ghosts. She bought a six room farmhouse on one hundred sixty two acres in California and set to work she served as her own architect. But it's possible that some ghosts had a hand in designing the house as well. Every night. Mrs Winchester would retreat to her say aunts room and receive instruction from the spirits on the progress of her house, the next morning should present her construction workers with hand-drawn sketches of what was to be done. Sometimes it seems she didn't care what she built as long as she could hear the hammers of her crew. The crew might spend a month constructing a room only to be ordered to destroy it the next month because MRs Winchester paid well, no one disputed her instructions. A MRs Winchester had inherited twenty million dollars and just less than half the Winchester, repeating arms company stock that left MRs Winchester with a daily income of about a thousand dollars to spend on her house. That's equal to about twenty five thousand dollars a day in today's money. But what if those doors and stairs to nowhere doors may open onto walls or in the case of? Second-story door to the outside resulting in a big fall for anyone who might try to exit that way a closet door on the second floor seance room opens onto a first floor sink several feet below the stairs to nowhere are pretty much. What they sound like stairs. Go up until they reached the ceiling, and then they just stop. These might have a simple explanation. The stairs were likely part of the original house that MRs Winchester bought and when she started adding onto the home she covered up the stairs. Whether it was accident or on purpose. Mrs Winchester, usually covered up her mistakes by just continuing to build around them because she had no master plan for the house. Her architectural ideas didn't always work out since she had no deadline for completion should either. Tear down the mistake or cover it up with something else. But the new stairs. She built also zigzag back and forth going around and around in circles and most are only two inches about five centimeters tall, some people. Think that these touches were designed to confuse the evil spirits that were haunting MRs Winchester, the height of the stairs served a very specific purpose, though, she had very bad arthritis and these. Small stairs allowed her to get around. However, MRs Winchester might have deliberately installed some of the other weird touches believing that ghosts would get lost on stairs. That went nowhere or accidentally step out a door that went outside if the sound strange to you today, you're not alone. Even at the time that MRs Winchester was building the house. She was regarded with suspicion some dot her and eccentric with too much money on her hands and her home took on the nickname mystery house, not long after her death because MRs Winchester left, no, diary or other communication. We honestly have no idea. What might have been going on in her mind? What we do have is her house, which is still open to tourists. Mrs Winchester died in her sleep in nineteen twenty two and the house was sold to a group of investors who wanted to create a tourist attraction to this day. It's hard to know exactly how many rooms are in the house because people keep getting lost when they try to count. But it's estimated that about one hundred sixty rooms are in the home. It had reached seven stories by nineteen o six for the top three floors collapsed after the nineteen o six San Francisco earthquake. Some other famous numbers associated with the house include. It's forty-seven fireplaces seventeen chimneys to basements. Six kitchens ten thousand window panes and four hundred and sixty seven doorways despite these impressive numbers. There are only two mirrors. Mrs Winchester thought ghosts were afraid of their own reflection. Mrs Winchester, also had an obsession with the number thirteen many things installed in the home feature. Thirteen of something a thirteen window panes thirteen wall panels thirteen sections of flooring thirteen stairs in each staircase. Their thirteen bathrooms sinks that have thirteen drain holes and the sales room has thirteen coat hooks and beyond the stairs and windows to nowhere. There are other architectural oddities all over the house stare posts were installed upside down and chimneys served. No, purpose are all over the house. Their cabinets that are less than an inch deep. That's about two and a half

Yeah, after that will take it to the hard seat with Jake the snake, and then we're going to wrap it up with a quick lightning round of fresh news topics to wrap up the week. The first topic we got here on Wednesday in New Haven, Connecticut. Forty. Nine people were found to be overdosing on drugs in or around a public park. So that's a lot of OD's. Tigard. Yeah. All in the same general area basically. Most of them in the park, some right around all in New Haven, for sure. A local man believed to be associated with with at least quote. Some of the overdoses has been arrested, but his identity has not yet been released. He's he's responsible for all of them. Obviously, I don't think I don't think like forty nine people, overdose all at one time and it's like a unrelated, you know, on the same place anyway, the real, the real news is that it's in one part. I wanna go party in this park, man. Yeah, you and everybody else in New Haven. So the police were tipped off when concerned citizens called in around eight AM reporting that a bunch of OD victims were just laying on the ground helpless. First responders said that they tried to get to the sickest people first. They could transport them to the hospital, but with forty-nine people, it took quite a while. Eight AM. You can up eggs. That's an I knew they were. They were Odeen druggies hate sunlight. Was this on the way to work like early one commuter? Was it overnight like, well, we'll just to be overnight overnight. Sounds overnight. Sounds like people saw in the morning, but it you know, it police. I think they said it occurred over a twenty four hour period. Just randomly people would just start dropping to the ground Odeen in this park. Some early, some early riser asshole, walking their dog to the park was like, oh my God. Oh my God. Oh my God. Just just OD people everywhere. Yeah, it'd be pretty freaky. So witnesses described the scene as follows. Dozens of people appearing to be suffering from drug overdoses were scattered throughout the park, their symptoms ranging from vomiting hallucinating high blood pressure, shallow breathing, semi conscious and unconscious states. So basically, zombie park was heroin. No, no, they do not think it's heroin police believe that the drug that everyone overdosed on was probably k. two or synthetic marijuana, probably combined with other drugs as well. Get fucked k. two is the worst. We, we have a near and dear heart experience with some k. two at my bachelor party did not go well, but it just fake. We'd right. We thought it was real.
