Before The Shot In The Arm
"So we have the magic potion. We have three vaccines that will probably be on the market soon and now now we have to put them in something. We are talking about special. Various dot. After tiny little glass vials. You can't just use any kind of glass for this. The glass reuse was invented in one thousand nine eleven. This is stuff on mark schmidt. He's in charge of global sales at a german company called shot. They are the biggest makers of fancy medical class. This class is super stable And ken with stent. A higher shock resistance. And this glass is called. Borough silica glass borough silica glass doesn't shatter in ultra low temperatures invisible. Glass particles don't make their way into the vaccine. When you use borough silica glass. This is the good stuff. There are like seven main ingredients. The biggest portion of ingredients is silicon is sent actually and then we have elements like born sodium potassium calcium magnesium the sand and all those minerals. Come from all over the world. Brazil india china europe australia south america africa. Some are more specific to one region. This borhan is material. I think seventy percent of the ballroom is coming from turkey. The little mineral looks like little rock's born everything gets shipped to one of five melting plants. Where all the dry ingredients get mixed together. We have huge mixers and you heat these tanks up to over one thousand degrees and melt the sense and melt the ingredients until you have a homogeneous liquid glass melts not like water but like more more like honey. This sand melting is happening around. The clock constantly is twenty four seven we produce three hundred and sixty five days that glass because you cannot hold the tank to stop once you have heated up the tank you go you turn off the heat. You have a tankful of hard glass so you don't turn it off and from that honey lake melted sand you then form long glass tubes that then get shipped to one of sixteen cutting plants in places like argentina mexico the us switzerland germany. Indonesia china this a lot of places and here. The glass tubes get cut into vials syringes and cartridges. So it's a huge long supply chain and you have to manage all these different touch points so that nothing goes wrong. Yup stefan says shot produces around eleven billion of the roughly fifty billion borough silicate glass containers made every year including billions of vials and basically as soon as cove exploded. So did the orders for more vials. Everybody's developing a vaccine that everybody thinks they're going to be successful so what they all did and which is certainly okay normal. They all have booked capacity to buy vials. Yeah everyone who wanted to get in the race for a covid nineteen vaccine. They put in their orders for vials months ago. But they all know they will only need vials if the vaccine is successful but they also know you're not even in the race if you don't have a container to put your vaccine in seven says this has created kind of overbooking problem there are only so many vials shot can make in a year but they say not everyone is going to need vials at the exact same time. So they're hoping they'll be able to trade orders. That shot can be like listen company. D you don't have a vaccine yet. This other company does can we may be. Give them your vile order just until your vaccine is ready. Here's another way. Pharmaceutical companies have tried to avoid vile bottlenecks. They're putting the covid vaccine in multiple dose vials instead of single-dose miles. They're putting five noses in one vial. Twenty those as in one vial now. You need fewer vials and chart expects to make around five hundred to six hundred million additional vials twenty twenty one enough to support about two billion vaccine doses. Each file carrying multiple doses. No it's not a big number and and it's it's it feels small it it it gives small but still it's still. It's a stretch because you have to be able you have to have that additional capacity and you have

Milestone for COVID-19 Vaccine
"Want to get right to today's major covid nineteen development the uk's approval of a vaccine the first country to take that step clearing the way for vaccinations there soon. As in the us when a program starts here in the uk elderly residents of nursing homes and frontline healthcare workers will be the first to get the shots developed by pfizer and the german company biontech pfizer says eight hundred thousand doses are doing the uk in the coming days. The country has a population of sixty six million british prime minister boris johnson who survived his own serious case of covid. Nineteen spoke in the house of commons. Today i would like to pay tribute to thank all those who made this possible. It is the protection of vaccines that will ultimately allow us to reclaim our lives and get our economy moving again. Jason bourne is npr's global health and development correspondent so jason. You've been scanning the globe. Your thoughts on this milestone today absolutely. It's a big deal. This is the moment. We've all been waiting for right when vaccine starts to actually be available to the general public Supplies are gonna be limited in the beginning and we need to underscore that. This is a pfizer vaccine that we're talking about it's just one of the vaccines but it really is remarkable. How quickly they've managed to get this from scratch all the way to the approval stage and it's not just visor you've got these other ones that are in the works to but normally would take fifteen to twenty years to do this a year ago. We hadn't even heard of. Sarah sylvie two and here. They've done this in a matter of months. It's really it's hard under state. How important remarkable. This is using the real scientific name for covid nineteen. But what's your biggest concern as the uk starts to raw the vaccine as other countries watch. Yeah i mean there's gonna be issues. One is just the logistics. As i mentioned. This is the pfizer vaccine. So this is the one takes incredibly low temperature for storage at it's minus seventy centigrade needs at at certain points in time when it's when it's being stored and transported so logistically this is not going to be an easy task to get the vaccine all the different places it needs to get to get people vaccinated but it's doable but there could be some logistical challenges. Second is going to be concerned. That we're going from vaccinating. Tens of thousands of people during these trials to now. You're gonna start giving it to millions of people and that after some of these people get the shots. Some of them are going to have some medical issue. Maybe they were just about to have a heart attack it. That is going to happen when you start giving this to such a large pool of people in questions are gonna come up about. Was that an adverse reaction to to this vaccine might have nothing to do with the vaccine but these are the types of issues on that could lead some resistance stumbling blocks some questions about the vaccine in the months ahead and just look globally for us for a second which countries have managed to control infection rates. Well what lessons can we learn. Some of the european countries have done quite well. You look at france and spain over the last month. They've brought their second waves down significantly. Ireland also seems to have gotten fully passed. Its second peak. The numbers continue to remain really quite low in africa Places like chile had a big surge in june and then they brought it down to relatively low numbers and they have managed to avoid a second wave entirely. Like we've seen in some other places so it's really different in different parts of the world but there are definitely examples out there of places that have managed to do it successfully and keep their numbers either. Bring them down after a second peak or keep them low right and what about the people who have been to be kind stuttering Here in the us. We're seeing huge numbers of cases. Every day where are the other troublespots yet the us still continues to dominate this pandemic globally with one out of every four cases being in the us but after the us then at the moment it's india brazil. Italy and russia in that order in eight is interesting to sort of look at this You know eighty percent of both the cases and the deaths are in either the americas or in europe. It's really been these two regions that have borne the brunt of this. I'm an even this week. documents from the world health organization. Said he's very concerned about mexico and brazil and the rising numbers there so there are definitely places that are that are not doing so well we just have a few seconds here but i think i know the answer this question. Yes the vaccine is coming. It's coming faster to the uk but the virus still winning at this point isn't it unfortunately. Is this pandemic continues to grow. Even as we see it ebb and flow and certain places. The numbers continue to to come more and more each week and they come faster and faster so yes. The news about the vaccine is very important to actually slow the of the virus that we're seeing globally
No Speako Espaol
"To say who has the right. Who has the final say that says atrushi gano a true latina through. Mcconnell is only someone that could speak spanish. You know and i don't think that's right. Man i mean who who who makes up these rules and and should we follow them. I personally think I don't think languages a pre prerequisite for being latino being chicano Being a brown man. What do you guys think well. That's a good topic to jump into because it's so true it's like the level of your of the your command of the spanish language this should not dictate whether or not near brown right so the big question is does speaking spanish. Make you any more brown than the next person. So i grew up speaking spanish. That was my first language you know and then but the other thing is also like with my father you know. I'm not saying that he's right or you know but It's just the way that it was that he's like Kind of he was one of those people that would hate it when a dark person a didn't speak spanish it and he's like i said i will not pollyanna frontier needs to buy new like it. Would it would. It would hurt them. You know like like lexus. Like one time we went to the beach and then after that that there was this this like these chillers.

My dad's like not need a colonoscopy de niro and so it kinda like silence my dad now you know. Let let like like he. Did you know it was like that was my experience and i mean i'm not a like even when we're at at at the table like my dad. He didn't like me talking to my my siblings and sp in english in by noel. And it's like he always made us talk in in spanish like everything so that was my my experience I mean like. I said it. That's not how i feel. I mean it's like Because as i start as i started speaking more more english my spanish started You know I started seeing things wrong and stuff like that. You know so. Like so. Even when i went to mexico and i saw some of my cousins and they were like i'll say like a word like spanish or i'd say it wrong and then they'd they'd make fun of me. You know like a skit way.

It's like why do we power trip over that stuff. Yeah man you know. That is a really good question. What what is this about. Power trip know or authenticating. You know you know and why you know why. Why is language such a important part of who we are. you know. Like like maya bringing is little bit different My mother is he. Gonna you know she was born in he comb. My father is gone. He was born in texas. But you know but all our families are from different. Parts of michael and i was born on the border town. You know on a border town so we spoke spanish. We can all speak english but we spoke spanish. That's was the star norm. You know especially right. They're living literally on la la frontera in this five miles away from the fence. And i remember it was like a hard core as a little child by man owes a hard corden nasa student. You know like little four year old five year old you know like totally proud of being brown and everything you know and and only wanting to speak spanish men you know and And because my mind english was such an ugly language you know such a detached language. You know there is no cutting no love in there. you know. And it wasn't until. I went to first grade at the americanization process began. I didn't know it at that time. But that's basically what it is you know. The american is ancient process of denying us. The our our right to speaks spanish.

Electric Car Chargers: When Supply Drives Demand
"Suddenly we are now looking at cars that can go three hundred miles on a single charge right and while they're still too expensive for many people they're expected to get a lot cheaper in the next few years but now people are worried about how long it takes to charge. Yeah and that's a. That's a fair question i guess how. How long does it take to charge and electric vehicle. More than fifteen minutes less than two days. Yeah that's not helpful right so i could throw a whole bunch of numbers that you to explain why there are so many variables that affect this but the most important thing actually isn't the numbers. It's the fact that most electric car owners most of the time charged their car like this. My name is duane ross. I live in corrales new mexico. And i have a two thousand thirteen tesla model s when i bought this car headache. Standard tesla charger installed in my garage. And you just plug that in and of course the charge and then he goes in his house and lives his life. Yeah in the case of someone like duane. Ross and others. It doesn't really matter how long it takes to charge. Because you just leave the thing there overnight right right and it would be parked anyway. Yeah also more convenient than having to go to the gas station from time to time. Plus it's cheap like a lot cheaper than paying for gas is the way i understand it I could see how this works for daily driving. But let's say. I want to take a big road trip right across the whole country. What then that's where. Fast chargers come in. Joyce bryner has a tesla model three. She recently stopped to charge up at a brand new super charger in gettysburg pennsylvania. It sounded like this can hear the power ramping up there. So this is a gonna charge me fast and Let's see what car says here. Looks like of got twenty five minutes to get to eighty percent charge. This is kind of staggering so charging the car at home would take hours and hours charging on the go using one of these fast chargers takes. What like twenty thirty minutes half an hour. Maybe not much more than that. That's amazing yet. That is really quick. There aren't very many fast chargers. That actually are that fast. You might take longer especially at an older charter. Though pricier i take it then then obviously charging it at home because it's well i guess it's just it's it's almost free at home right right and this case. Brynner's charged cost a little over eleven dollars not too bad compared to gas but more expensive than home. Okay so even at a state of the art charger. It's obviously still a lot less convenient than a gas station just because it takes awhile right but remember for most drivers. that's also not a very frequent experience. Mike davar needs with the market research firm s. Clint and he says if you ask people who are considering electric vehicles they really focus on the idea of waiting to charge. Is i think psychologically waited more than it deserves. And the inverse of that is the fact that they don't tend to appreciate how much they'll benefit from nocco gas stations so even though fast charging this rare occurrence for most drivers a lot of companies are really focused on making it as fast as possible and putting up as many fast chargers as possible. Yeah i could see how that would get people over that mental hump so that they just by the thing and then after that they're they're mostly just charging it at home. Yup that's the psychology. Are you ready for the economics. Are you seriously asking me. If i'm ready for the echinacea. All right here. We go the fastest. Fast chargers are super expensive to install like more than one hundred thousand dollars per charger. That means you can only really make money off of them. If people are using them a lot if the utilization rate is really high but remember most people mostly charge at home. Oh there's another hump to get over sure. I spoke to end smart. She's the vp of public policy at charge point which is charging company. And with the fast charger you often have low utilization. Not because it's not an unnecessary piece of infrastructure but because it's in a location which is vital to two drivers occasionally but not necessarily used frequently every single day so in other words. People really want a fast charger to just be there. And in fact they won't buy an electric vehicle unless they're already confident that there are fast chargers everywhere and they're super fast and in fact way faster than they are right now. They want the whole package but they don't actually want to use those fancy chargers all the time it's easier and cheaper to charge at home. It's actually better for your battery too. So it's kind of like if everyone wanted a gas station nearby but they could just get the same gas at home for a fraction of the cost right and in that situation. And you're the gas station. How do you make money. Well i mean you can always just get money from the government. The taxpayer That is happening as i understand. Yep charging are also cutting deals with utilities and of course they're they're joining forces with automakers right because they want to chargers to exist so that people buy their electric cars. The automakers do. Kathy's oy is the ceo of vigo which is fast charging network and they have a deal with gm essentially agreement with general motors is building a bridge between where there's enough cars on the road to make money which is a little time in the future to two right now. So that helps us will build the of demand because general motors has come to the party and is helping make a contribution to the building that infrastructure so he also says look people right now mostly charge at home but that could change in a few years once more. People who don't have garages start buying electric cars. So maybe utilization goes up and this is really interesting camilla because like we normally think about how demand drives supplies like people want man for something. They're willing to spend money on it. So you know. Accompany supplies it Here's always saying that. Like no once the supplies out there. Then it's going to drive up demand so build chargers and people will buy the vehicles to use the chargers she also says maybe you can get a bunch of shipping transportation companies to use these fast chargers and that'll help cover their costs. So companies are optimistic. Then they see a path to profitability. Here yeah but. I think it would be fair to say that. It's a lot easier to get there. If people were a bit more rational. If people used fast chargers as much as they worry about fast chargers they're either be a lot more charging or a lot less worrying. Yeah and in either case. Just less of a conundrum

Powerhouse Marketer Ana Valdz on Using Media to Create Change
"Ana you were ten years old growing up in mexico city the first time you witnessed the power of marketing. Take me back to that. yes. I would remember perfect. He i was driving with my mom and we knew that there was a huge problem in with water and we traditionally unfortunately at that time didn't have a lot of good experiences with efforts from the government and suddenly a hero the radio vis campaign that was called sierra and sierra leone's in english means i actually doesn't have a real great station but it means turn it on right and it meant that people when they are you know watering when they are brushing their teeth. Or whatever. just turn it off. you don't need to keep it open all the time in that. Remember thinking this ad just changed the way. I do everything. I cannot even imagine what it's doing for the rest of the country and extremely that happened. Two years later we were out of the prices and through the power of media have changed the way mexico was meant to suffer and avoided that huge drought at the some of the consequences of the drought. So i said you know what for me visit. I'm using media to create change. Whatever happens in my life. That's what i'm gonna do. When did you actually realized that marketing could be a career. So in mexico marketing as a career didn't exist and i actually begged my dad to let me go to this specific school but them on the ray because it was the only place where i could find marketing as a career and i did go and i loved it and i was lucky enough to get amazing professors. The people that were developing marketing at that point in mexico where my my professors and they gave me internships. I worked for them every summer. And that's how he ended up being a fanatic. Your first job. You worked for nielsen. Global marketing research firm for four years in mexico and you were one of the first women that they had hired. How did being among the first show up in your experience there. I come from a family of men that love strong women so i always loved being a strong women. Even though i had to pay prices you know being a strong woman. But i loved it and so when i asked for this job i remember thinking it doesn't matter who was before me or who they want. I'm going to show them. How much good for them in the process was very very rigorous and you had to interview with each one of the managing directors of the partners. And you had to interview with Every one of the heads of the teams. And i remember thinking every time using my marketing skills right. Who's my audience. What did they want what we need to get them. And i remember at the end of the process. When i was lucky. Enough to get in one of the people interviewing me told me for me. There was no difference that you were a woman. And that's exactly what i wanted to here.
Permission to Be by Angelina Lee of Exploring Plan Be
"Permission to be by angelina. Lee of exploring plan. B dot com quote. A man who wants to lead the orchestra must turn his back on the crowd mexico. Have you ever wondered what life could be like if you turned your back. On the expected as a society we've created accepted and followed certain norms. We have come up with a definition of success that entails so much more than being able to meet our own needs. we've created badges of honor and we call them business exhaustion and excess. We say to ourselves that we must do all the things to reap all the rewards and we must burn ourselves out in order to do it right. A slow simmering of unfulfillment from within gradually leads to a tumultuous and rapid over of discontent anxiety and despair. I was unhappy with what my life does lead to anxious thoughts about. What course my life should follow this in turn led to complete and utter despair as my instinct was to believe that i was feeling at keeping up failing at being able to do it. All i was feeling at life. Mind you if you asked me then to identify exactly what i thought i was feeling at. I likely would have explained some version of my life. That was programmed into believing was the only mark of success over time after much wrestling with fear. I've come to realize that. The lifetime crafting looks a lot different to the life that i had mapped out for myself so many years ago the life that i thought would have been most pleasing to those around me the life that would have signaled success to myself man to the world over time after a much longing for peace in my inner being come to realize that it is possible to be happy is possible to take time for myself. It is possible to live the life that makes me feel truly alive instead of merely marking my days. I recently had a conversation with a friend who left her corporate career to her passion in the conversation. She said to me that she never knew that it was possible to be so happy. Sadly far too many of us have yet to experience this level of fulfillment. The fact is that we crave validation. We need to know that our decisions will please those around us. We need to know that we are in alignment with the norms that we have unknowingly created and accept it. But the truth is that there can be no true fulfillment outside of finding our purpose and living our lives in a way that brings joy to ourselves and to those. We meet any no validation to do what you feel called to do any no validation to be who you were called to be unino validation to follow your dreams and live the life that you want to live regardless of the expectations that others may have for your life but if after all is said and done you still believe that you need someone to accept or approve your decision. Then here it is. I give you permission to be

What protections were in place for these birds. And what does that have to do with the 1918 Migratory Bird Treaty Act? Well. Congress passed that law in 1918 over a century ago, basically the implement treaties that the United States had initially with Canada and now Mexico, Japan and Russia to provide international protection and now domestic protection to migratory bird species. A wide variety and about 800 of such species are currently listed under federal law here in the United States. Some of the Trump administration says the action apply only to birds killed or harmed intentionally, and the Fish and Wildlife Service says the change would quote improve consistency and efficiency and enforcement. So what do they mean by this? Well, I think they're trying to reduce the scope of the traditional application of this statue, which is provided very important protection for a variety of migratory bird species. It would Reverse a policy that Republican and Democratic administrations have followed for at least a half century of including as violations of the statute industry activities whose practices have the effect of killing Wildlife and, uh, wildlife Biologist currently predict that this reduction in the scope of the law will will really cause about one half billion to over a billion birds. Additional bird deaths Per year. So is there any way of avoiding that? I mean, two opponents have the time any time at all in order to try and reverse it. Yes, sir. A three policy options that opponents of this regulatory initiative can pursue. They consume challenge the Trump Administration regulation. I understand that a number of organizations like the National Audubon Society Defenders of Wildlife. And perhaps joined by the state of California will suit to block the regulation. It's possible that Congress could intervene in January by invoking the Congressional Review Act and can nullify regulatory programs from the executive branch doesn't like and third and finally, of course, the incoming Brydon an administration could initiate its own rulemaking proceeding to reverse this new and in my view, ill advised policy of the Trump Administration, but that That is the alternative that would take the longest amount of time to implement. So tell our listeners in urine in your opinion, why it is ill advised. Well, the way it is well documented that the actions of a variety of regular regulatory industries like coal and gas industry, uh the electric utility line operators, telecommunication kennel communication towers, wind turbines cause devastate populations of these migratory. Bird populations, and there are a variety of existing well known technologies that can dramatically reduce or eliminate those those bird kills. And this regulation, of course, removes all incentives of members, the regulated community to adopt those needed and environmentally benign reforms. That's Richard Frank, professor of environmental practice and director of the California Environmental Law and Policy Center. At U C.
Mobile labs target "testing deserts" where COVID-19 can spread undetected
"Some communities in the U. S have less access to Corona virus testing these days, allowing the virus to spread undetected. CBS's Mark Strassmann says mobile testing labs are trying to change that. I blame you head back just a tad. There you go. Lisa Wright wanted a covert test. Without this mobile testing lab, The 70 year old retired nurse would have to drive an hour to get one. I want to know whether you know, have it or not. Set your mind at ease. Yes, roughly 13,000 People live in Sumpter County, the poorest pocket of Alabama they learn to do without. But Marcus Campbell, a county commissioner here drew the line at covert testing. We were a test in desert and people would always acts when they heard about testing going on and other areas. Why not in Sumpter County? According to research by Johns Hopkins Communities of Color often have less access to covert testing. In Alabama Majority Black counties tend to have fewer tests available. The majority white counties There were similar trends in Oregon, Delaware, New Mexico and South Dakota in predominantly Hispanic and indigenous American counties. All those two causes and it was heartbreaking to me. We buried two family members on the same day. Did it motivate you to get tested to folks who need it? Absolutely. Campbell coordinated with Watley Health Services to set up drive through testing in West Alabama. Since March, more than 4000 people have been tested. 10% tested positive. It is reward to know that they can get it done. I'm sure you continue to wear your mask. These mobile labs test 2 to 3 times a week in west Alabama Testing desert no more.

"Weather related. However, what we don't know we've started seeing this before the weather event happen so that that is troubling and it brings up the question is what else is contributing to the? Odd. Behavior was seeing and birds and the large number of deaths were seeing and birds, and so it could be related to the fires. Some birds may have had to change their migratory routes they may have been forced to leave early they may have inhaled smoke and have some damage to their lungs. When you talk about odd behaviors, what does that mean? What are you saying? Well. We're seeing birds in lethargic conditions where they're just sitting on the ground and you can walk up to them. We're seeing birds that normally are in shrubs and trees feeding on insects are running around on the ground chasing insects down we have. Seen swallows die in groups roosting together and an old nest by a barn swallow up to a dozen. We've seen birds up in northern. New Mexico by the Sulphur Hot Springs Diane Small, Group, some of them even in the hot springs, others kind of grouping into. Caverns in the ground or outside of a little. Cavern burrow in the ground. So just very odd behavior. And we have had very odd weather. You mentioned some of it there but certainly, it's been an unusual year and it's been an unusual series of years. How much of this is related to climate change? Do you think? It's at this the scientists in me will say at this point, we really don't know but certainly here in New Mexico has been very dry year most of the deaths that we're seeing are insectivores and if these birds are having to. Reroute themselves and then there this normally not a very active stopover site for birds during the migratory period and we're seeing some birds that we normally don't see if they have to if they're landing here and then there isn't enough food for them to feed on certainly enough insect. Certainly, that could cause some of them to starve to death and that is a drought related phenomenon. Is there anything that can be done about this by humans? Yeah that's a hard question i. what we need to do right now is kind of get an idea of the magnitude of the issue. So one of the things that we've done is we have. A platform on I naturally. And it's called the Southwest Avian Mortality Project, and this is where folks Upload pictures that they see or share observations. So that will help us understand the magnitude of this event When you lose this many birds that's got to have an effect on the overall population and these species that are being hurt by this. Absolutely you know we have seen an estimated three billion birds die since nineteen seventy across the United States. We've seen drastic declines in insects in the United States, North America, and these have had enormous. You know the the insect, the declines in insect populations. Obviously, we'll have an enormous impact on the activists, birds and and event like this where so many birds have died. On populations that are already stressed and.

"That about him. It's fascinating a digital Barrett authors psychologist who teaches at Harvard Medical School her latest book, Pandemic Dreams Deirdre Dr Barrett. Thank you so much. It was fun to be here and. As House races across the country. Heat up looking at them each week on here now in for this week's district profile, we turn to New Mexico's second congressional district Democratic Congresswoman. Social Torres small faces a challenge from former state representative Republican Yvette Herrell. It's a rematch from twenty eighteen. Joining us now is Joe Monahan. Who writes the blog New Mexico politics with Joe Monahan Joe Welcome thanks for having me well. A Torres small is only the Second Democrat to represent this district in decades. Can you tell us more first of all just about the district? The district is huge. It's one of the largest congressional districts in America and extends basically completely south, and West and east, from Albuquerque, which is basically in the center of the state, is largely rural district. Except for Dona Ana County, which has the city of Las Crisis, which is the center of Progressive Politics in the district, and where Torres small comes from, but the rest of the district leans conservative and often Republicans so it makes for a very interesting up well, and let's start with the incumbent Torres. Small here is recent ad from her campaign. WATER IS LIFE It's the new. Mexico way. I'm so chill Torres Small I've spent my career working with new, Mexico farmers and ranchers, protecting water and the water rights they depend on like federal drought, Legislation and funding for new conservation methods. Okay so she is playing up the environmental points in that ad, but there are ads coming in from outside groups against her including the conservative American Action Network, which says that she voted to impeach. The president hasn't fixed. The opioid crisis secured the border. Give us a sense of her candidacy. I think that spot kind of sums it up. That spot is about water, which is about as noncontroversial really as you can get at least the way she phrases it. This is really going to be embrace where the Republicans are going to try to get those hot button issues. You've mentioned to the front. If trump cannot perform well in the southern district, the odds will favor the tour small re-election. Heroin dependent upon how the president does and has been painting very closely to him.

"Police were looking around, they knew you know they could see the traffic on the road, so they had plenty of warning if they had to get away, was pretty genius hiding place for them, so the FBI then used a pen register. Do you know that is now? It's basically an electronic device that records any numbers called from particular telephone line. And they applied this device to a handful of friends and family of the escapee's that they felt were capable of assisting and resulted in a hit on a call to a motel in Albuquerque FBI and police went to the motel, showed photos to the front desk agent and she recognized them. The entire area was searched, but they were unsuccessful in locating them. They had already left. It, really does feel like they were a step ahead the entire time. They really had a thought out plan. The major concern that the police had was for kinsman and Gilbert. who both murderers and Kim slow was also known as a rapist, and so is Gilbert so there were a huge threat to the community I. Think the at this time the entire state with freaked out. People were scared. people were worried. They were going to run into them so as they're on the run the FBI and And police were working around the clock to find them. Everything seem helpless. Until something happened in Arizona, James had already proven that he was a danger to society and he he showed that as he stalked potential victims in Arizona. He forced his way into a home started looking for weapons. He was able to get a shot gun. Several handguns a rifle as well as ammunition. He then forced the family to get into their vehicle and. Forced the data drive them to California at gunpoint. Once. He gets to Barstool California. He takes his hostages to a motel. He ties them up and then takes their vehicle as well as their eleven year old daughter and drives away Oh, my God, the parents eventually get free from the restraints somehow and call the police so now the FBI. Were dispatched to the area barstool looking for Kim slow and after two hours, police officers flagged down by the eleven year old girl in Garden Grove California, which is about one hundred miles away from where she was abducted. He dropped her off behind a restaurant and told her stay here. And he would, he would be back and if she called the cops, he would find her and kill her. She totally ignored him. Find him down or flagged down a police officer. And? What about us? As an eleven year old. Just have that like fuck you leaving..

"To other facilities to house them until things were cleaned and fixed and everything i. mean the entire prison was like one one wing in particular was completely. Burned out. There I mean not to mention that. They had to clean up everything and. The crime scene. Yeah, everything was a crime scene so because of the cost of keeping those prisoners in other states. because. That was skyrocketing. State legislators started. To bring them back to the state penitentiary only six months after the riots. That's interesting, so it was extremely expensive for New Mexico to have other states house are inmates. That's interesting. I mean you wouldn't think that other states would is do us a solid in like. Give art prisoners in state tuition basically. Yeah I don't know how it works, but I think the other part of the cost was the cost of fixing the prison, so there's with those were also putting pressure on the legislators. Legislators were like. Let's just get some duct tape and figure just put him back in there. They'll be fine superglue. Don't worry about it. My cousin will fix it. He told me after you give them. A twelve pack knows a guy. Just give them a twelve pack I'll be fine. So this happened. Even though the prison really wasn't ready to be reopened I mean six months isn't a long time. So as you can imagine this more problems and more challenges for the inmates in the state, and I'm sure it did nothing to fix the morale issue or any of the issues that actually started the right in the first place, so we have a really long history of kind of cutting corners in the state. Yeah, yeah, so over the years between the story until you and the prison riot there were at least six killings of inmates and guards in the months following their return to the state penitentiary. Moses, yeah, and many of the killings were related to the riot, as inmates were fearful that they would be snitched on for killing their fellow inmates, so they did the only logical thing they could think of. Kill people to stop them from testifying against. That I mean, it makes sense because there were prosecutions that we're going to follow the riot, so they're like. I know what I'll do. I'll just start killing people totally rational. The pattern of death and violence continued for years following the riot, and there was a ton of fear in the prisons that in New Mexico. The tensions boil over again and this carried over into the late eighties, while the state did not have another riot like the one in nineteen eighty, the tensions and the fear continued to fester so now let's fast forward to Nineteen eighty-six. My friend. Governor, Tony Tonia. That's Tony with a e and why Tony Tony Tony. He decided he was going to commute. The death sentence a five convicted murderers who were on death row. The former governor was quoted as saying my personal beliefs do not allow me to permit the execution of an individual in the name of the state for me to simply walk away now we'll make me as much an accomplice as others who would participate in the execution. He did this just weeks before his hand off of the governorship to Gary Carruthers. And this would lead to one of the worst prison breaks in Mexico, so he's commuting the death sentences of these inmates before he leaves because he has moral objections to the death penalty, which makes sense. But that particular, those commute that commuting of those senses. What's potentially leading up to this prison?.

"But it's possible that because those other people were you know they were wasps basically or it was easier to point the finger and blame this Jewish couple for this this subversion. Sure and of course. It's completely aren't coming from Roy Cohen. Who himself was also Jewish but for some reason he had laser focus on this couple and making his name was very important to him making his name known and pushing the agenda of Joseph McCarthy so after the execution of the rosenbergs there were still always this general distrust of anybody who affiliated with concepts of communism or or Russia up to Ronald Reagan really well known for not trusting Russians. I think the Cold War carried on into our childhoods and I remember some of it I remember all of it but I remember some of the aggression towards Russia towards some of these other countries. That was still going not that it was undeserved absolutely. I mean they definitely were were fucked up. Yes yes so. Ultimately a lot of people wondered if Oppenheimer had any experience himself in the trading or sharing of secrets. I think a light of debt was also cast on him again because he was a Jewish scientist and again going back to the anti-semite Semitic nature that was common in the US but time period. Yeah absolutely at the time. People definitely have their doubts wasn't intelligence disclosure from US resources and you documents from the USSR that we learned Oppenheimer also had a cone codename delegated by the US are his codename Westchester. But it's been it was clearly confirmed by the. Ussr documents that he himself did not participate in sharing information even though he had been actively recruited and even his own mistress was a car. Technically a card carrying member of the Communist Party. He himself never that we know so far. Never shared any nuclear secrets with Russia. It does seem that the whole McCarthyism and all of that really did succeed in squashing. The Communist Party in the United States right the level of influence and and notoriety that they had in the forties and the thirties is not basically non-existent wrangling. So that's that's an interesting thing to think about yes. They got what they wanted. I guess I mean McCarthy era I guess you can argue with Success Woolen. What their motivation. Wise again whatever. People's political leanings. Are I history history But you know it is interesting that there was this complete annihilation potentially of an idea a political idea and granted there were these perversions. With trying to steal secrets. But I don't doubt that the United States was also participating in espionage efforts throughout at the world. Exactly what a communist would say Yup card carrying member? I do like the name Ethyl I do and I. I saw photos of them. You know I I feel bad for kids. I think that they had a really rough go because they were put into essentially foster care and then adopted navy and change their names to be their adoptive parents and I think that was probably because they were being attacked are followed the New Jersey school system. It's crazy yeah. Their their sons are still alive. I don't know that they still give interviews. But they from what I've read. They still like Eric said they still believe that. Their MOM's participation was minimal at best. Yeah it's a really sad story. It is time and a horrible story. I mean just the entire thing is crazy and the fact that there's so many ties to New Mexico. It just blows my mind a little bit because I was not even aware of that so i WanNa thank you for teaching me something. You're welcome and what we talked about earlier was it's the. Us obviously beat Russia in terms of developing the weapon. Although the information that is inevitably given to Russia did expedite their process. It saves them about three or four years I think in developing their own yeah Which leads you bunch of other things down the arms race and all that fun stuff not fun not fun but still interesting to highlight the role that New Mexico played during World War Two during the development of weapons.

"I would be into that. It's really beautiful. People have weddings. There will like you said it's on High Street. The Victorian style probably two story house. Yep Exactly Yep so. They have the same exact room where Ruth Greenglass and David Greenglass Staden when he was shuttling the nuclear secrets to his wife to eventually pass on to his brother-in-law Julius Rosenberg So greenglass later became known as code-named Bumblebee. So if I go back to make what are these things have in common trump whitesands bumblebee? Now you're getting more the picture. So he's Bumblebee. He is Bumblebee. So it was transformers. He was the transformer all the time it was a car wasn't even human so Rosenberg. Not None of this happened by accident. Rosenberg was an active member of the Soviet. Union's like support group was a Communist Party member. And he's an American though. Yeah in Manhattan right so Julius Rosenberg. David Greenglass brother-in-law was an active member of the Soviet Union spy ring and his handler slash mentor at the time encouraged him to recruit his brother-in-law. David Greenglass Greenglass was an active soldier in the US Army but he and his wife Ruth had also previously joined the Youth Communist League prior to this happening so all of them had interconnected relationships with the Communist Party in the Soviet identity and the and the climate at the time was not as like anti-communism as it became after all of this happened but it was starting to build up. I think that like a lot of people in America were against Communism which stood for and They felt that it was anti-american that it was anti freedom and so for people to be like people were part of the Communist Party before this it was just a thing right. It was a thing you just like. I'm a Democrat. I'm a Communist. I'm a Republican. But then after this all kind of fleshes out it starts to become more hostile towards absolutely. Yeah the Communist. The Communist Party in the United States was more affiliated with the working class working unions and labor rights exactly and the spouse ings of like Emma. Goldman who was a huge labor rights activists who pushed for like the eight hour workday and women getting access to birth control sweatshops ending sweatshops. Exactly Yeah So. It was very common actually for people to align themselves politically with what was previously identified as being Liga communistic party. It was at this time this World War Two and later on during the Cold War that we obviously began to develop all this very negative sentiment towards that concept and it. You know to be fair. It wasn't helped by the Russia regime at the time. They were super brutal. It was a dictatorship even though in the guys like a communist buying on CBS. They were spying us. I'm sure we were doing saved. One hundred percent spying on them too so greenglass and David Greenglass already had his connections. Julius Rosenberg was encouraged by his handler. By his connections to really push for David Greenglass to share information that he was getting from Los Alamos so we don't know what that coversation looked like. We don't know if there was any sort of coercion. All we know is that David. Greenglass took information from Los Alamos and shared it with his wife and his brother-in-law Julius Greenglass Aka Bumblebee continued to share information with Julius and Julius is code named Jesse now was code named antenna. So the Soviet spy network didn't just end with those two. They didn't want just want to hedge their bets. There they also targeted a well-known scientist him. Klaus Fuchs like we talked about and his code name was Charles in his counterpart. A R. L Z yes. Yeah sorry no it's okay. That was weird. Yeah maybe that's like the Russian version I duNno and his counterpart to transfer information. Was Ted Hall code-named Millard Millard? Millard Miller is that like a bird that's Mallard L. Malehda Dwight so. I watched a couple of documentaries about this. Whole thing and hall was allegedly a genius like he was Super Smart Scientific mind he was young and there was one scientists that work with him on this project and he said that he could do things like ninety percent faster than everybody else because he was just so smart now so hall and Fuchs. Focus was primarily on the use of uranium specifically. You two three five power their dispatches for that research didn't get didn't end up reaching Moscow until much later on so we don't really know that their spy efforts had a huge impact because for some reason their information didn't get to Moscow in timely fashion also Ted Hall was working with his former roommate another career for the Soviet Union and his name was Saville. Sax and Sax would also shuttle secrets so they would also have clandestine meetings at UNM campus really. Yeah in in this book that I found a spice guy to Santa Fe and Albuquerque. They have photos of like specific locations at UNM that they met at location specific to Santa Fe that the spies would meet out to share information. So it's really cool so everytime driving around campus. I always remember like Oh my God these people here like these people were here physically standing here sharing nuclear secrets. It's so crazy that's insane. And also like the way that they distributed this information back to Russia was pretty crazy like I. I saw this whole thing about the Telegraph and the telegram So they would just send these wire cables through Western Union back. Then it wasn't just money money union me some money on Western Union area. No but they they actually would send these secrets through a coded message and the code itself was so complicated like I got really confused watching and learning about how they did the code but they said that even today with supercomputers the way they are. They're still basically unbreakable as you have the key and so there was one guy in particular who was working in Los Alamos to decode all of these cables and figured it out. How so he actually learned all of these code names. He knew he's one of the discovered Charles and Bumblebee and all these other things. He's a very smart guy who's like multi-lingual that's the only reason. He was able to decode this. How he knew Russian he knew English these other languages and he figured out the code cracked the code and was able to determine that we were actually losing all of these secrets. All of these top secret things that were going on with this project. We're just going right to Russia. Wow it was amazing I will show. Is THAT SMART. It'd be a spy but I would just rub it in people's faces fund Los Alamos actually has the highest percentage of a master's level educated people in the state rousted. But what do you got? You're welcome have you like them? Apples the real smart Boston. I Dunno actress because I might he? I don't know I was thinking of goodwill hunting mark. Wahlberg again no Matt Damon. I think more complex in goodwill I know you said Boston. Oh yeah but it. Doesn't it takes place in Boston? Harbor Hav Greenglass was eventually apprehended in one thousand nine hundred fifty when his transgressions were discovered World War Two was over but the US was entering a phase a new war and that was a Cold War with Russia. So we also know this as the red scare so Russia was enemy numero uno number one. Sorry Putin Yup Sills Green glass quickly. Dimed out Julius and his sister Ethel in order to secure protection for he and his wife. We wanted you to say dimed out. What is that route it out? You're getting mad because I'm using this expression. Dimed out. I use the phrase dimed out in always read it out to be only one. You're saying it's not a New Mexico. That's fine I've always said dimed out. Yeah he sold them out. He sold amount out. He dimed him out. He sold them out. Hopefully your listeners will support me in the use of the expression timed out. They won't support so obviously in order to protect himself and his wife led to the fall of Ethel and Julius Rosenberg he basically just bitched out. I mean he totally threw them under the bus. It's really unclear if he ever regretted this. Like you can find some old photos of. When he's leaving the court after testifying against his sister and his brother-in-law he doesn't look distraught or upset. I think he ended up living under an assumed name and died later on. I think one researcher found out where he lived and made contact with him but he didn't share any sort of reflection on any sort of sense of guilt or or anything so it's I think it would be complicated to unravel what that dynamic looks like especially when it came to who bore the majority of the responsibility where was everybody equal partners or what but who board the majority of the consequences right. That's the real quick. Yeah so yeah so going into that point. Let's talk about. Ethel and Julius is prosecution. So Roy Cohen became a lead prosecutor of the Rosenberg trial. They were eventually executed in one thousand nine hundred eighty four. After being found guilty of espionage. They died by electric chair. Okay sadly they left behind two young children and also. There's a lot of like I think that your point here and my point is that there are a lot of other people involved. They did not suffer even close to that level of consequence and the level of involvement. I think is questionable especially on. Ethel's part that her son is really advocating for justice for her claiming that she was wrongfully accused. I know that she was Communist Party. American which was the thing back then. But there's a lot of questions about how involved she was directly as opposed to her brother's wife Right. Who was ruth? Greenglass was very involved and admittedly so and not just that but like hall and Fuchs and all these other people. They didn't get electrocuted right now. That's a really good point for some reason. Cohen have is is laser pointed towards Ethel and Julius. He's GonNa make an example out of them again. If you get a chance to check out angels in America there's Roy Cohen's character is played by Elba Chino Rosenberg's played by Meryl Streep and he's kind of suffering is a national treasure and her spirit comes to talk to him. It's really profound. It's really good acting Just a little bit of a segue if you get a chance to check it out. So Roy Cohen was infamous in his own right. So he was really infamous for his role. During the McCarthy era the Red Scare Court theism McCarthyism. There were hearings after hearings. Were people were being targeted at accused of being communist specifically in Hollywood actors actresses probably what you would call like more liberal minded. Today were being blacklisted and labeled as Communist. Once you're blacklisted. That basically meant you could never work again. You're labelled as a communist sympathizer an active member of the party in. You didn't deserve to work again. And the big big people. Spearing that efforts were Roy. Cohn and Senator McCarthy from Wisconsin Wisconsin or at home was from New York. It's also suspected that Roy. Cohn was a closeted homosexual. He later went on to advise. Donald Trump. Our current President Rupert Murdoch the Right Fox News and he was also known as a fixer among the political realms. He was also known to be incredibly highly unethical lear on his life he being disbarred and he later succumbed to complications associated with AIDS whoever he did his best to hide this illness. And so again. If you have a chance to check out those in America please check it out. It really diced X. More of that dichotomy that he posed where he probably was a gay man but his outward presentation the way he treated other people was really horrific and the epitome of hypocrisy Ethel. Julius Rosenberg felt the brunt of whatever aggression he for. Some reason held against people who identified as communists and. That's not to say that they were innocent. Because I that definitely. Julius was involved in this whole scandal of recruiting his brother-in-law and connecting the dots for some of these people that were working at the Manhattan project. He definitely was not innocent. But it just for me. The contrast of the level of punishment that they receive versus the people who were key and instrumental impressing some of these secrets. Really Getting Away Scot Free and there was one documentary. I watch where they interviewed. Hall's wife and she still. She was still alive back now. No she is now but she said that he had a moment where he felt so guilty about what was happening to the Rosenbergs that he was determined to go turn himself in and like confessed to everything that he had done and she convinced him not to allow but he wanted to save at the most. He wanted to save Ethel's life because he felt like she was being treated unfairly and there was a huge backlash before all the McCarthyism and everything started to really take shape and grip the nation. There was a big backlash of public sentiment. That felt like Ethel should not have been executed and they were protesting in the streets. And all these things were happening to stop that from occurring and and they're even several petitions to the president himself at the time to turn back the execution order and he refused to do it. So it's just I think it's interesting. I am not saying that they were innocent because I don't think that they were but I do think that they were used as scapegoats. Yeah we buy Cohen and some of these other people to send a message that this wouldn't be tolerated anymore right. I think you're absolutely right. And there was also a lot of anti-semitism associated with scapegoating the rosenbergs. Like Eric said their level of culpability was probably less than other people..

"Trey BURKE COOKIES. I even got real cookies burnt them. Yeah Prince Club pictures of that. I don't actually. I'm so annoyed. I went to a party and everything but nobody took a picture of news so road. Do you know me the famous my own mind. I'm a guest on a podcast a couple times animals. I'm basically co host Mark Wahlberg. Yeah I know him no relation Berg so The rap replica towns and family homes they were completely obliterated obviously during the test bombings and upon reflecting when he was observing those tasks he years later he reflected on what he was feeling what he observed other scientists and their behavior after dropping this bomb at white sands. And if you get a chance to find the the youtube videos of Oppenheimer in this reflection it's really it's really intense. Like he kind of looks like is GonNa Cry. He looks really really skinny and kind of just like a sad person. Maybe that's just my interpretation of it but he just looked like a downtrodden much older gentleman who maybe like juggling. These roles that he played that interacted are history. Seems like a heavy burden to carry. Yeah no kidding so they. I tested the weapon on July sixteenth. Nineteen forty five and Oppenheimer later share that some scientists were laughing. Some were crying laughing. Yeah laughing I don't know. He doesn't further expand whether or not it's like this historic hysterical giddy laughter or is it like an uncomfortable after the ocean. We did this. What are we GONNA do? I didn't know that the the what are they called the candy. The minton the coke was gonNA explode until I just thought it would. We should try it at node actually. And if you watch the footage of what that looked like it was I mean if you can imagine being somebody in the fifties though had been insane sight to see that go off. Yeah like a science kind of technically assigned explosion in the League is later on. I think they did later on like actually test on like live. Animals like cows and sheep and stuff like that and the skin's being stripped off so understandably leave their reactions. Were mixed so like you said Oppenheimer said some people were crying. Some people were laughing. Some people were totally silent for him. This is how he identified how he felt. He said I remembered the line from the Hindu scripture the Baga Vodka Gita Vishnu is trying to persuade the prince that he should do his duty which is to be in war. Okay 'cause he was like I just want to clarify the heart of it because he doesn't talk about it in this quote but the prince did not WANNA fight. He didn't want to kill anybody. And Vishnu is trying to convince him that. It is his duty to do that. Go ahead sorry no good. Thank you so vicious. Trying to persuade the prince that he should do his duty and to impress him. He takes out his multi armed form and says now I am become death the destroyer of worlds. So I think Oppenheimer genuinely recognized that what he had participated the creation that he had participated in was going to have such a huge impact on the the world's future and that largely that impact was going to mean death. Lots of Beth. Yeah I mean to almost two hundred twenty five thousand dead in Japan alone. It's just I can't imagine what he must have felt. I think it's similar to what the creator of dynamite fell. You know like you create this thing. And it's so destructive right you know. I definitely believe that oppenheimer was torn about about this. Chretien the atomic weapon. I think he recognized that. There was a potential obliteration. Being weighed against the ongoing atrocities being waged by the German and Japanese regimes. So here he is a Jewish man recognizing that other Jews were being slaughtered. In Germany that Japan was an ally of Germany. Japan had waged war on us with Pearl Harbor and he was hoping to create a weapon that was potentially going to deny late. All those potential enemies definitely sent a message right. There was no doubt in the world's mind at that point that we were not fucking around right but I guess my question for you. I may be jumping the gun here on on what you WanNa talk about. But why did New Mexico get involved in all of this jury? Cover that no not yet. But thank you for bringing. That is a good segue so rewinding back to the creation of these weapons. We wanted tether back to New Mexico and there was a reason why New Mexico selected to develop the Manhattan project and that was again back to Oppenheimer Oppenheimer who was originally from New York but he became familiar with New Mexico because he traveled here in his early teens. early twenties to be treated for illness in he'd completely fell in love with the mountains. He fell in the desert landscape. What you guys. I just really WANNA fuck this shit. I don't know that he said that But I definitely know the heat like that. It was a very isolated territory like it was theraworx for still. Aren't that many people around here. Same thing that makes it. Great for colts also makes a great for atomic bomb so in nineteen forty one even before the US entered the war President Roosevelt pushed for the US to develop an atomic weapon. So Lieutenant Leslie Groves happened to be a colleague of Oppenheimer and so they were both tasked with finding a location to work on this project and Oppenheimer immediately said. Let's go check out New Mexico so they ended up checking out Los Alamos specifically an area called the Los Alamos ranch school so there was already some pre existing buildings that they could build off of pre existing infrastructure. Like water and stuff like that so it was. It had all everything that they were looking for and he was also incredibly isolated difficult to find difficult to get to which would help support the secretive nature of their work so they really thought this is the place where we can work on this war ending weapon at the same time though. Stolen was completely aware stall in being the leader of Russia at the time was completely aware that the US was going to work on developing an atomic weapon and he already had designated multiple sympathizers with Russia or active buys within Russia to get information from the US efforts to develop the atomic weapon. So just as soon as you started its efforts identifying Los Alamos doing all these things. Russia was right behind us. And saying we're going to get the goods and we're going to be able to beat them to this. Nuclear weapons is like the precursor to the Cold War. Right exactly okay. So we're no I know a couple of things right and and if you think about the. Us is in this weird. By the time we enter the war. We're in a weird relationship with Russia where we're technically working together. They are working to push back the Nazi forces and we have landed in Europe to also push back the Nazi for because there are also developing this whole Communist. Right there were. There were already identified as a communist regime which whatever listeners feel has its own sentiments and we don't want to get down that rabbit hole about causing communism gay but that's exactly what a call no answer so. Los Alamos saw the arrival of a low level engineer named David Greenglass and he came around the same time that vary trusted. Kgb spy and a very renowned scientists name Klaus. Fuchs was also ripened Los Alamos. What a few Fuchs Spelled F. U. C. H. S. Did you ever middle school like right or like high school? Faq like fuck you now. I never did that are used to do. I was too busy doing that. Ask Gang Symbol. So maybe he was the one that wanted to few shit up CA. I think they all wanted a few. But Fuchs was definitely more high level he was an actual physicist whereas greenglass was a little bit low level. I wouldn't say unsophisticated machinist and he was very skilled at that. He was really good at making things. Yeah and but he wasn't necessarily know scientists right. He wasn't like this. You know brain power behind the razor writing the equations for fusion making the components for the devices so few China arrived in Los Alamos but also at the same time when we say like the KGB. I'm using that as like a colloquial term. It wasn't technically the KGB at the time the KGB came later on in the fifties technically at the time it was the key that was Kinda like their speed network. I mean I think KGB is used. Colloquial amount to other gives an all expansive term for? Yeah actually Putin used to be a member of the KGB. And that's why they say he's so good at like manipulating world leaders into doing he has all these skills that he learned from the KGB. Come the first person to throw you under the bus every time everytime I'll take you down with me so technically it was the cave but you know going back but hold on hold on I wanna I just WanNa take a minute. Yes One Minute. I feel like my listeners. Really need to understand that that you have a crush on Vladimir Putin. I no longer have a crush. Because he's an awful person he is just a really bad guy. Could use to have a crash there. I just found him attractive. It's something about like that small man big ego thing. I don't know I mean you would assume I have a crush on Tom Cruise but I don't. It's something about like being a I mean I don't know I can't explain it. There's no way to explain or justify my attraction to Vladimir Putin granted. This was before his horrific facelift. Yes so to my credit. This was before you completely butchered his face but but also was still buttering people civil sales. Yes okay is a better face back to the story. I mean He. He Rides on bears. He hunts shirt lives. You're going to get so much flack from your listeners. Who were like? Putin's awful know he's off. I know he's like seven hundred letters of people like Oh my God I feel the same way. It finally saved us in safe places love and again. It's not I don't love him as a person I just. There's something attractive about him. I felt that at the time no longer do that by now. I'm all about Captain America. Chris Evans my new stick right now. Okay okay now. Being see now you've got to be distracted about my pinterest. Became my mentor. Looking at images of Chris Evans and Scarlett Johansson. Why don't you like? Did you ever get together so the KGB again cloaked term? They were. They knew that they didn't want to hedge their bets. On one person they were being smart about things so they're basically showering Los Alamos with as many intercepts that they could come up with. It could bring information back to Russia and help. Russia's efforts to develop the A-BOMB or develop nuclear weaponry before the US gets it first right so greenglass in nineteen forty four. He was living in Los Alamos and his wife. Ruth had actually settled in a boardinghouse in Albuquerque again in nineteen forty four and he would come from Los Alamos to go and visit her two hours. Yeah and so they were staying. She was staying in this boarding house. Not just because they were working on this spy plan but because they they did love each other and they wanted to try to be as close to each other as possible so she was staying at a boarding house and she was serving as the Messenger so greenglass would come bring the information and then ruth would pass it on to Julius Rosenberg now. Julius WAS MARRIED TO DAVID SISTER. Ethel Ethel Rosenberg. David's wife. Ruth was staying at the boardinghouse in Albuquerque and the boarding house. If you look at it. It's still here in Albuquerque. It's known as the spy house. It's a bed and breakfast. You can actually go and stay there. Which ago took it out..

"Lydia. Hey Eric Welcome back thank you. I'm glad to have you. I know that you've been excited about this particular story and I honestly I wasn't excited about in the beginning when you brought it up because I didn't understand But as I started to do my own research not that it's as extensive as your research but I did my own. I started to become more interested in this case and also I learned some things which kind of pissed off at you about because I hate learning things sir. Yeah you're such an American but history has never really been something that I've been into. I guess maybe you're more into history than you realize. I guess I guess my show would be proof that I am history but for some reason I cold war. I hear all this stuff and I'm just like a boring. Don't care but honestly I did learn some things I do feel like maybe I might be more in the history than I thought you said so. So I know you wanNA talk about spies in New Mexico. Yup spies secrets and lies. And we're talking about a particular set of spies not not like. We did with the colts where we had two different things. We're GONNA talk about one particular thing right right during one particular part of US history and New Mexico New Mexico history So let me ask. Okay what do these three things have in common? Trumka Whitesands Bumblebee. I'll tell you transformers. The answer is the hint being our segment spy. I'm excited to see how that all connects a thread through the story and weaving thread in some magical blanket. Is it a Cova blanket? No it's not a covert blanket. Thank God yes. We don't want that. That's better Noda Cove Ed say No. Just say no social distance everybody. Let's break down those connections. Okay of those words. Random RANDOM WORDS RANDOM words right trump white sands and bumblebee. So the overarching connection is spies. New Mexico is home to a bunch of government agencies. Like what are we have? We have the Department of Energy. Here we have a bunch of Research Laboratories. We've got some homeland defense stuff going on here. Yeah with the Research Laboratories Missile testing in parts of the State. Even close to where we grew up right so on the other side so we grew up in Sapporo which is a small teeny tiny teeny tiny little town which translates to help. Help me get me out of here. Your explanation point But behind the famous M mountain in Socorro. They do lots of missile testing. And I don't know if you had this experience growing up there but when I grew up there my house would frequently shake from the sonic booms. Yeah some of the missiles and some of the jets flying overhead and it would get really loud. Oh totally yeah. Yeah in the same people that work on those explosions by a mountain also handle our July Fourth Fireworks. This is really pretty legit display. Yeah I coro yeah I think it's a pretty legit display. Looks like actual bombmakers making fireworks. We went down there last July. Because it's around the same time as my eldest daughter's birthday so we tell her like this is all for you know minus happy birds. But I haven't been there in such a long time and I still see like a total legit firework display. No it is. And where else can you get hurricane? Junior not from New Mexico Google Google L. Hurricane Senior and then Google Al Hurricane Junior and then also fireworks. Yes I'm hot dogs and hamburgers and all that other and actually really nice grassy knoll to avoid the fireworks. The golf courses very lovely on. Yeah it's really pretty anyway. Nobody cares about that. Yes you want people to check it out. Because it's a hidden gem of New Mexico. Get so flustered. I'm so passionate about the fireworks and the Green Chili Cheese fries at El Camino. Oh my God you guys. If you ever go to Sikora you'll have to go to El Camino the best new Mexican food ever and if it's later in the evening asks to be set in the El Matador lounge a lounge. You can have a beer. You can have a beer. Natural Cheese fries. And the booths are like super old from the seventies and the sixties and it really lost in time. It's totally. It's like a total pausing time. It's really the only thing the only complaint I have about the ALCHEMY. No we're really going down a weird round hole. Here is the fact that they put fucking olives on everything love but I love a okay okay. We're not Italian and we're not Greek. So holidays are okay in my book like this is like a Spanish right. Oh Yeah I never thought about that action to whole new then test. Just get out of my car bit and go forward magic lamb for you miss up. Those aren't the words so we're not doing karaoke audience. Let's get back on track. You're distracting US stopping so selfish and let us focus on what we need to tell you about. Spies in New Mexico Gut. It's all about you dare you okay so new. Mexico is home to lots of government agencies. Eric I think you've actually looked up. How many people are actually employed by the state or the government yes sixteen percent of new Mexicans are employed by the public sector? It's a huge amount of people. It is considering how few people who live here. It's like three hundred thousand people so that's your lot so there's a reason why so. Many people I think are clustered around New Mexico or agencies. I should say that kind of goes back to World War Two so even before the. Us got involved in the world. War a gentleman. By the name of Oppenheimer was tasked at developing nuclear weapons and he had been familiar with New Mexico which will talk about a little bit in. He was tasked with developing an atomic weapon. That would hopefully end the war so when we say atomic weapons that's kind of a broad term basically. We're talking about an a-bomb so the a-bomb was used to drop on Hiroshima and Nagasaki Generation. One right nuclear weapons right. Yeah I'm saying right and yeah like I totally know about nuclear weapons. Science man's played it to me actually entails but just space on the seat that we're sharing what it's called is so the people will kind of responsible of navigating where America was going to go with World War Two. They had a choice whether to look at Atlanta invasion of allied countries so allied countries being like Japan or look at a firebombing campaign so basically flying over and dropping arsenal so obviously they decided to lean towards typically firebombing. So essentially what happened is they dropped bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in nineteen forty five and that essentially devastated sixty seven Japanese cities resulting in approximately two hundred and twenty five thousand deaths. Devastating completely devastating. I mean whether you're not you're like Oh yeah America. If would've I still think that's such a huge death toll like so. Many civilians were literally burned alive when they dropped the weapon and then whoever was left probably suffered a horrible long battle cancer yet. The bombs were respectively named fat man. And Little Boy. That sounds innocuous. Yeah I don't know why they came up with those names. I'm sure there's A. There's a reason why those names were selected. They probably meant something so going. Back to how these weapons came to be. We have to go back to what was known as the Manhattan Project and the Manhattan project was primarily housed and developed and nurtured in Los Alamos New Mexico so for those of my listeners that are not from New Mexico. Let me just take a couple of minutes and talk about Los Alamos? So Alamos is Right now a small city I think maybe a few thousand people live. There is right between Espanola and Santa Fe New Mexico and so it's in the north. I was in north central part of the state Very beautiful area Los Alamos itself actually sits on top of a missa which is a flat hill type structure and you can just see this beautiful canyon to the West and then if you go east there's a beautiful nature preserve called device Kavita which is an old Volcano that is inactive gorgeous area. Lots of wildlife beautiful vegetation. Have you ever been there? I believe I have driven through there. I don't believe I've ever stopped. It's like but I do remember it being like very forested and beautiful it is. Yeah so Los. Alamos itself is also very pretty giant pine trees but that's the setting of where the development of the atomic bomb happened. And I think if I'M NOT WRONG. Correct me if I'm wrong that back then in the forties it was top secret bowel. Yeah totally so. You weren't even really hard to get to and that's why you know is probably selected right because it is remote and it is on top of the hill so they could easily block off that entire area from you know access from people right and. I think they did that and pretty sure there is one way in one way out. You know. They're still. There was a gated area. Where people at check in as they came in and check out as they left and even now it's still heavily involved in the development of top secret technology and yet top secret things related to military how we have that. And we also have Sandia national labs here in Albuquerque which is very similar to that but I just wanted to give kind of a rundown Los Alamos is because not many people. Maybe don't know about it. Yeah it's a small town. It's a very small town. So as IRC point now it's still relevant in today's government agencies and government research is the highest income per capita in New Mexico. That that town. Yeah there's a bunch of scientists who making bank. They're not us not no he tried and they said no to go away. Who are you do? You have a degree in and we said laughter. You're not my mom never will be all right. We'll get back to the story back to this story of the bomb cheesy nineteen nineties version dropping own so prior to obviously the final execution of this weapon there had to be testing phase and that testing also occurred here. New Mexico and that was done at the White Sands and what are these things have in common white sands missile range? It's also now known as a White Sands National Park and the site is marked now formerly as the Trinity Test Site. Okay so first of all if you're not from new. Mexico whitesands is amazing gorgeous beautiful. So it's all of these really bright white sand dunes in the middle of like these giant mountains and there's yuccas growing everywhere and cactuses and it's just so pretty there. It's really weird to think about the fact that was like the sight of some nuclear testing. And also it's not very far from where we grew up. No that's true and I'm pretty sure boys to mention a video there so doesn't go down a Midi Boswell. Somebody shot a very well known music video wiped. And it's absolutely gorgeous. I believe it's gypsum. Rock that gypsum. Yeah that's kind of a very fine sand in. It's actually illegal to take the sad. You need to get permission to transport any of Sun and Eric set just stark blue skies and a couple yuccas spattered here. And they're absolutely gorgeous so if anybody's looking for a road trip to New Mexico checkout whitesands. It's worth it. Yeah it's totally worth it especially at night with the moon you can. Even you get permission to camp there. Caution don't go in July waste yes. Family actually will die from Germany. You will die. Yeah you'll die. Don't go hiking there. I mean. Just imagine what it's like when you're like in the snow in the Sun is beating down like br blinding your face. It's the same thing but it's also hot. Yeah so. Prior to the dropping of the bombs they went through testing phase they selected whitesands detest it. It's now known as the Trinity Site and White Fans actually just gained it's National Park status. I believe that just happened like a couple years. Yeah so what they did. Was they built replica? Towns and family homes didn't have like dolls and mannequins. Yeah that was actually a couple. Years back maybe. Like ten. Years ago. Actually dressed as a mannequin mannequin from the site. So like I was wearing like nineteen fifties like you know cute housewife outfit and there was carrying a tray of burnt cookies and they had like melted. Skin all over me yeah. That was my costume. You're really morbid. I thought it was clever. This club yes. This is a matter of like a vision. In my head of this mannequin man with a fedora a sue and like the the house making wife wearing an apron and like poofy scourge basically what I was wearing and carrying Rondo..

"Yes there's a lot there's a lot of love. Gosh Yeah Too. And like you brought me one of these back I WanNa it was something like the summer peach. Yeah I I think that timeline checks out and they also. That was probably late in their strawberry season. So they have. Strawberry Rhubarb is a popular option for them and then later like in like fall. They have Perr Ginger fritters like all of it. I'm on all of it right like right now. I literally just go. You know what we're going to have to find a way to get back to New Mexico in the next couple. I missed that and reminiscing about. It is not helping when we're not there. No it's not helpful at all and then and other place that I loved was Santa has a great. They have a very robust coffee shop scene. They do much to my delight. They have plenty of those. My favorite was this place called sky coffee and it's in the railyard area of which seems to be a very kind of up and coming in like industrial area hip but like that's where like the Rei was and area. You're obsessed with because you're getting those town mountain bars from. Yeah and only I can only get them in areas. So that's what brought me to that. Area was to stock up on energy bars and then I was like Oh. Here's a coffee shop. That looks really cute. So hot in there and it did not disappoint. It's really sunny bright. It looks like kind of a white cottage definitely place that I would just chill out working main computer for a little while which is exactly what I did and they have like wonderful espresso and Cortott does Chai per over coffee. They've come on tap and then they have lots of coffee cake and muffins and they also supply a limited selection of. Who's doughnuts so in case you can't make debate. They were ownership. Yeah and last but not least has probably one of the better views was that rooftop Cantina For Margarita's yes. I was like are fun. Awesome like bar hopping night in downtown Santa Fe and this is the grid casual option. It's very chill lively vibe. Still kind of silence in artsy but like much more laid back I would say and spacious rooftop we were able to like Mosey right up to the edge. Pretty much and just have like a couple of margaritas probably like guacamole chips. Solid foods solid Margaritas. Like nothing too crazy. Fancy it's about the views but then they do have that like Fancy restaurant inside though they do. Yeah which is just right through the doors and I remember just like sitting sitting there chilling. The Sun was setting and it was the most idyllic experience and a great way to cap off just a wonderful dream evening in Santa Fe. Yeah and I cannot get enough of Santa Fe or Albuquerque or New Mexico like all of this from blue corn donuts to like blue corn lagers at bow and Arrow and Green Chili Pizza. Grizzly Turkey sandwiches. I love it all such a wonderful and you know what's crazy. This is just a taste of New Mexico.

And he's going to talk to us today about the pleasures of retiring in living in New Mexico and this will be a regular program every month. The difference is it will be living in a different part of the country to enjoy life and retirement someplace else other than where you you live. So Welcome to show Hal. I'm so glad you could join me today. Thank you Debbie. It's wonderful to be with you and I hope the weather is wonderful. Will there in New Mexico today. It's it's just cleared up. It's nice and sunny. Oh that's great. Well tell me I know you've been in New Mexico so for a while now and tell me and the listeners. What do you like best about living in Santa Fe in particular but New Mexico in general There's so many things I like about it but I think most of all like the community. Santa Fe is a small city. I think the population is about eighty three thousand a great number of interesting people here and I find it very friendly with many opportunities to connect with people bull but I I made by When when I made my first visit to Santa Fe nineteen ninety two? I think it was like it was twenty nine. I was just completely taken in mesmerized with with Santa Fe and asked myself why we law to to come to this unique place and after several months several visits here. I told myself you know one day I'm GonNa live here and low behold behold here. I am and myself every day that I live here. Isn't that that dream came true. Well it's a wonderful city. Yeah I was so pleased to visit their few months ago and I just fell in love and I knew like you I knew I would love Santa Fe and it's just a terming town on and so much to do and I like the walkability of it too but Tell listeners what you like. Best about living in New Mexico itself. You know I have to say it's the it's the climate It's a dry climate here. I've always lived in fairly humid Environments but I think it's definitely the climate and the there's a natural light here that is very a nourishing I think I can relate to Giorgio Keith who came here from New York on her very first visit I think she's quoted as saying that would she came to Santa Fe or skews me. When she came to New Mexico she found her soul? And that's why she ended up relocating here because that that natural light here hello we've lost him. Oh which yeah I guess I should call it a low okay. You're back what happened to you. Don't know this is creepy okay. It's that old white eight New Mexico blue start again at the. What do you like best about living in New Mexico central and so just? I'll ask the question again encounters down joe three to one though. How what do you like best about living in New Mexico itself the state you know w I would have to say it's it's the climate the climate and the natural light here? It's a dry climate and having lived in humid parts of the country. Most of my life I really prefer drier climate. The light itself is the the only way can really describe it as this natural light that we have here is is what I would say nourishing it just really really enhances your mood and or hands his mind every day if if we have a sunny day which we do over three hundred days as year I always think about Giorgio Kief and her quote that on her very first visit to New Mexico I believe it was in the Nineteen Thirties When she came here from New York that she says she found her soul and I think I think that that the natural life that we have here allowed her to as an artist to flourish and of course the rest is history? We all know her her fantastic work We have a museum here that that that dedicated to her as well as Many other places around the state and also I think it's the wide open spaces here. I think that lends itself to kind of open opening creative. Mind interesting. Okay that's yeah. I enjoyed the Georgia Keith. Museum Liam and I want to get back there to go to town and see her a place there that she has and It it's just such a different low flow area from what I'm used to. I really enjoyed it What about the weather though? I mean how. Many days of Sun is get as hot as Arizona with one hundred nineteen degrees agrees. Or what are the average. No no no no. We're kind of more of a mountain and state I in Santa Fe in particular. Seven thousand has a feet above sea level so We never get scorching. Hot like you do in Phoenix We do have over three hundred. Today's of of Sun here which I love. And that's just one of the draws for me we do have four distinct seasons and of course we do have a winter a real winter and we often do get snow as I mentioned where seven thousand feet above sea level. Aw and well we do have a ski area about twenty minutes from here which is ten thousand feet above sea level. So there is I think this year we're getting upwards two hundred and forty inches up in the mountains and the ski area so we have a theory very active ski season. This year. Last year wasn't wasn't we didn't have much snow so we didn't have such a great year for skiers but this this year has just gone gangbusters for the skiers And they're all they're all in town. Well what about. How hot heart does it get wind as it? What months or is it? One month two months of heat or what will oddly. Surprisingly for a lot of people. June is our hottest month. We do get into the nineties most of June throughout the day but the nights get really nice and cool pleasant. There are a lot of people here the live here. It's still don't have air conditioning. Because there's there's only maybe six weeks of the year where people feel that they need it. They keep their windows open at night. It cools off the the House that closed up during the day and It's it's quite manageable. August is our can actually be quite pleasant. Whether wise. It's it does cool off a little bit in August and a lot of our days are in the eighties. So August is the the busiest tourist month here one because of the weather and two is because we just have a lot going on like Indian market so we have the great number of visitors Arizona. Texas Florida who come here in August to get out there heat when L. Interesting so so they come as far away as Florida. That's interesting what can you mentioned about the Indian market. That sounds intriguing. All any bark is is huge. Judge I if I remember correctly I think we'd they say that it brings in upward two hundred thousand people we'll Into the Inter our area which of course we don't have dearly the accommodations for that. But people stay in various places like towels or Albuquerque or surrounding areas to to visit the market. But it is quite an event. And it's just a a great display in downtown of the the Indian art and those artists will come from all over over the place to To participate in Outta that interesting various business week of the year. And so it's just one unweakened August yes and various tribes of various Indian tribes participate or is it one or two or no. It's it's it's everyone you can imagine. I couldn't name them all. That's amazing I one thing I enjoyed about the my trip to New Mexico was learning more about the Indians Out Out there and it's it was very interesting as to how they develop the area and what has happened to them since but I believe W. visited the Pueblo didn't you yes yes got got to See one of their ceremonies. Yeah Oh yes. Every time time. I go out to either while New Mexico or Arizona wherever I always like to visit the Indian reservations to learn more about that particular. Take Your tribe and I just find. I've always been fascinated with Indian culture and the Indian lifestyle. And I've always liked to learn about it and it's always fascinating fascinating to me. What goes on at these particular locations and all the rich cultural history that they have so? And how many ask those traditions down from generations. Yes and they keep doing it regardless of what the restrictions are on their lives and their lifestyle so I take. It's a great deal of respect for them but let's let the listeners know what what's cost of living like. There's a pretty good pretty realistic. What's what's it like? Well I think that has Depends on where you come from in terms of relocating I I would say it's considered anywhere from moderate. Probably maybe a bit high for some for some dependent upon part of the country. You're you've come if you come from a high cost urban area. I think you'll find it very reasonable as you're coming from Maybe a smaller town or a state like I Dunno Louisiana or are South Carolina. You might find a bit higher But it's still not unaffordable. It sounds no I would. I would say now. Yeah what about like medical facilities. I always tell people to be sure that they can get to a hospital easily and that the hospital is not endanger of of shutting down. I know a lot of rural areas have Facilities that are closing down just because they can't afford to stay open and I'm sure Santa Fe has enough population to be able to support good hospitals and doctors nance sort of thing so talk to people about that We do we have we used to have just one major medical facility and that was Christmas Saint Vincent. Now we have to Presbyterian you're in healthcare services came in last year built a major facility here. So now people have the option of choosing between the two of those the Presbyterian which of course is brand new is considered state of the art but cynic criticizing. Vincent's has a major ager presence. Here so we're fortunate now that we have both and I think competition is always a good thing particularly healthcare having having good quality Medical care is very important as well. Yes now if you needed something. Highly specialized like heart surgery or something like that. Many of the specialists are found in Albuquerque..

Yeah I mean I didn't want. I was leaving the freezing conditions I wanted I wanted to go and travel. I didn't WanNa you know struggle with freeze and sets but and there are times that you still do I mean in it. The weather can change an incident out there. I've dealt with snow freezing rain inches of rain out there which makes roads. It's pretty much impossible. It's Gumbo there can be. It's all depends on where you're at but down there whether can yeah I mean one time I trapped in the Sacramento's we never even left the camp for two days yeah just the rancher said I said when when it rains here you you can't go yeah did that. You just sit there dries out fast when to win. The two days is because it rained leaned again the second year which you know it's like oh good. It's starting to dry up but that when he that one rancher told me that he said you can't go and I'm thinking to myself enough. I'm going to go. I tried to go and retired suspend you put chains on change just the other layer they've among the way that they grade a lot of those roads out there. all the roads are down in you know they just keep running the blade over the top of them so a lot of those roads they're down in so when the water gets in them they can't does do soaks up and I remember trying to go like I was going to. I had to do something we we laid around there for a couple of hours and I said I multiple go check a few trapped and there was this just a little bit of a hill and Gumbo and the way those banks are might truck was just like a pinball from one side the other other trying to climb up the hill yeah bounced off the banks both sides all the way back down to the bottom of the hill then we couldn't get turned around I did I slept in the truck an I angle like that in the past across the Missouri River and trying to climb back up to get out of there and there's still too much rain and it did the same exact thing you're describing just stop there. I sit there and just kinda slow. You're on the track and this is about noontime the next day when we could finally climb up the that year in Sacramento it was me and my buddy fred that year we were trying to pull traps You're going to stay there for three weeks. there was rain and then snow in the forecast. We ended up that happened on day. Fourteen day day seventeen we were finally able to get out and start pulling droughts. We wanted to stay there for twenty one checks whether in the forecast we were just going to lay around so we were trying to get everything pulled on that seventeenth day and there was this pretty steep hill in this corner and it was right in the sun though Fred said boy the only way to know is try but it was like a thirty foot drop can be scary the only way to nose to try it and pretty and I've always been this way if I'm not busy like I'm ready to go home. It doesn't matter where I'm like if I'm not trapping every day I don't WanNa just hang out in a camper. You won't be doing something yeah so I'm GonNa try. We almost else made it to the top of it and the whole front of that truck slid over we had Algeria limbs pignon limbs everything coming through the windows of the truck because they just started to go and there was nothing that I could do. I slammed the truck in reverse and I just matt it it to the floor. Yeah that's what you gotTa do and I still don't know how because we couldn't see anything. We're just ray over the edge and all the brush juniper's. There's everything and somehow the truck came back out up on top of the road. I don't know like I really don't know what happened happens. All of a sudden we can see again. We're at the base of the hill still still facing up the hill yeah but I I don't know you sit there for a while. Uh well then then I ended up walking like half a mile to go get a couple of cats since I've seen guys do that. They're coming coming down a hill and he said if you if you start sliding can you just got it. Yeah you have to the only way to get out of it if you if you hit the brakes and you just oh yeah you don't WanNa hit the brake in stuff. It's for like people in the east. You know I've been in a lot of clay stuff in New York. There's nothing like it. There's honestly nothing like it's a it's crazy to think that you literally don't go anywhere so when you take Neil out there I think that was my third treptow. Neil been after me to go and trying to think we should probably pug that book to my lifestyle is my pay two thousand nineteen yeah I think he sold out now. He is sold out the but yeah it's one hundred eighty pages of Neal's trapping experiences and JP chapter in there that's what a history there yeah. It should be a pretty good read but neil after me to go for quite a while Lyle and my was actually on the second year out there on our way back. my wife got accepted in nursing using school we found out on the way back and that is why she couldn't go the third year and she was pretty wild about it but I remember I called up Neal and all that I said it's time Neil.

"Georgia Southern eastern Michigan teams that finished their season real strongly. What stands out between these two? Yeah. It's exciting to watch to working class teams in the MAC conference in the sun belt conference try to really put an explanation point on their season Georgia Southern fighting hard for that tenth win. You see that with all of the players saying we're wanna get that tenth win. Same thing on the opposite side of the ball with eastern Michigan wanting to get their eighth win of the season with Georgia Southern offensively. It is Ron Ron Ron it dominates their offense. What do you like about that offensive coordinator, Bob? The bass has come in and installed a hybrid shotgun triple option, it's a it's a really fun option style to watch play. But it is very run. Heavy Georgia Southern leads the sunbelt rushing towards sixty yards per game on eastern Michigan side of the ball. Defensively their weaknesses in the run game giving up one hundred ninety two yards per game. So they're going to rely eastern. Michigan is going to need to rely on their all MAC defensive end. Max Crosby and thirteen all MAC, Jeremiah Harris, Georgia Southern has seven guys that run the ball with regularity. That is going to be fun to keep track. O- for eastern Michigan. We'll be keeping track of the quarterbacks. You talk about them offense to really capable quarterbacks. Did certainly could start at a lot of program. Yeah. They've used to different quarterbacks throughout the season. Tyler Wiegert has been really the start started the majority of the snaps. This year a graduate transfer from the university of Iowa. But at the offense has stalled a little bit under with him under center. Mike glass, a Juku transfer has come in a more mobile type of quarterback and has really been a sparks albeit excited. He's been injured a lot this season. So if he gets in the game, he can be a spark plug that offense to teams that turned around their program. They have made it to the rate com. Media camelia ball, and it's typically a good one. Last four years. The chameleon ball has not been decided by more than five points, all one possession games. And we're looking forward to bringing it to you. All right, gentlemen. Thanks so much in Georgia. Southern the other thing about them is they don't make mistakes or give it away plus twenty two turnover margin this season that's best and the F B S six better than the next closest team. Eagles have committed only five turnovers this season, which would be a new FBI single season record. If they don't commit one in this game. If that is today's Home Depot next gen stat.
