"After Jeanne's father died, her mother left the three children in the care of the marquise de Boulogne villiers. Fortunately, the marquise and his wife were generous people. The couple sent Jean to boarding school and were able to prove her royal lineage. Securing her a small annual stipend from The Crown. Jeanne later met and married Nicolas de la motte. An officer in the local police force. Despite having very loose, noble ties. The couple began to call themselves count and countess de la motte. Nikola was forced to resign from his post following Jeanne's scandalous affair with his commanding officer. With no source of income, the couple went to Paris to try and curry favor with the royal court. Around this time, Jeanne started having an affair with rito de ville. Reto similarly was an opportunist, who hung around the fringes of the court. He dabbled in the sex trade and was a talented forger. In 1983, Jean met cardinal Louis de Rohan hailing from one of France's most noble families, the cardinal was exactly what Jeanne was looking for. Rich, powerful and desperate. The cardinal had fallen out of favor with the royal family and was hopelessly trying to get back into their good graces. Jeanne became his mistress and convinced the cardinal that she was close friends with queen Marie Antoinette. With the help of rata's forgery skills, Jeanne began sending letters to the cardinal posing as the queen. The queen would ask the cardinal for loans. Claiming the allowance she received from the king just wasn't enough. This was all quite believable. As she had a reputation for overspending. Of course, any money the Cardinals sent went directly into Jean's pocket. As a result, she flaunted her wealth and continued to move up the social ladder. The letters between the cardinal and the queen turned from friendly to flirty. The cardinal convinced himself that the queen was in love with him. He asked Jeanne to coordinate a meeting with his illicit pen pal. Although it was risky, Jean knew it was critical to her scheme. So, she arranged for a sex worker who bore a striking resemblance to Marie Antoinette. To meet the cardinal in a late night rendezvous in the Versailles gardens. Amazingly enough, the cardinal fell for the elaborate ruse. Jean knew she had him in her pocket. So when renowned jewelers, Charles bohmer and Paul basin were trying to sell the necklace they'd made for king Louis the fifteenth's mistress. Jeanne saw the perfect opportunity. King Louis the 15th had died before the necklace was complete. Made up of 647 diamonds, boemer and bassin should gone into debt to create this opulent necklace. And now they had no buyer. They tried to sell it to the royal family, but the new king had no intention of honoring his father's deal. And his queen, Marie Antoinette wanted nothing to do with a piece of jewelry originally intended for a royal mistress. Jeanne sent the jeweler's desperation and pounced. She had retro forge another letter from the queen. This time, the queen told the cardinal that she did actually want the necklace. But knew her husband wouldn't approve because of the country's grim financial state. The cardinal began negotiations to buy the necklace on behalf of his royal lover. In the end, the grand total came out to be around 1.6 million livres. Well over $10 million today. The jeweler gave the necklace to a close friend and confidant of the queen. Jeanne Jeanne then gave the necklace to her husband, who disassembled it and took it to London to be sold off in pieces. The plan went off without a hitch. Now Jeanne was actually rich. Even wealthier than some royals. What she failed to plan for was the follow-up. The jewelers never received payment and questioned why the queen wasn't wearing this magnificent piece of jewelry. To find out where their money was, the jeweler wrote to the queen to explain the situation. The blame immediately landed on the cardinal. In his appearance before the king and queen, the cardinal presented the letter in which he believed the queen had asked him to buy the necklace. It was instantly clear that the letter was a fake. It was signed with the queen's full name. When everyone knew that the royals only signed letters with their first name. The scam revealed, all roads led back to Jeanne and her accomplices. She was arrested shortly after the cardinal. In 1786, a public trial was held. The entire story complete with details of a sex worker credibly impersonating the queen was revealed to a scandalized public. Jeanne feigned innocence, but was ultimately found guilty of being the mastermind behind the whole plot. She was publicly whipped and branded as a thief before being sent off to serve a life sentence in prison. Always crafty. Jeanne managed to escape after just a year. In 1789, Jeanne now a safe distance away in London, published her memoir. She painted herself as the heroine, and the Queen as the villain. The entire affair of the diamond necklace, severely hurt public opinion of the monarchy. The lies in John's book added fuel to the fire. Especially around distaste for the queen. The rising discontent laid the groundwork for the French Revolution and eventually the execution of Marie Antoinette in 1793. Jean de ville was saint Remy, died in August of 1791. She was 35 years old. All month we're talking about mischief makers. For more information, find us on Facebook and Instagram at will manica podcast.

"Welcome to this very special spaces event. This is one that we're just doing as a one off year. Obviously, we've had quite a bit of news in the crypto space in the last couple of days. It's been in the middle of this for reasons that I think everybody knows. So we want to really dive into a little bit about what it all means, also a little bit about our own coverage of this. It's been quite a fall from grace in the Greta industry, almost in any industry I would say. You really see something unravel as quickly as we've seen FTX, one of the biggest, the most high prior companies in this space. For those of you who aren't up to speed, there's probably not many of you, but here's a quick recap. The event that sparked the collapse of FTX was in fact a coindesk story last Wednesday on the makeup of the balance sheet of Alameda research, a hedge fund closely associated with the FTX, which raised serious questions about FTX and solvency. That sparked an online feud between FTX CEO, Sam bankman fried and chain things out, better known as CZ, the CEO of binance, the biggest exchange in the crypto world. After the latter revealed that his exchange was dumping its holdings of FTX and self issued token FTT. That only sparked bigger concern about FTX growing customers to remove more than $400 million from the exchange according to data from nansen. All of this, of course, then led to this current offer. This agreement that seems to be loosely in place at this stage between finance itself to purchase FTX. Look, coindesk played a critical role in this. We have amongst the people that we're about to introduce to discuss this Ian Allison who broke the story last Wednesday of that balance sheet. So I just want to just put this out there because journalists don't like to necessarily be the story. We like to cover the story. But of course, inevitably in this space, there's all sorts of speculation about our role in it and how we handle it, et cetera, et cetera. And we'll get into some of that, as best we can. What I do want to remind people of just how very, very important independent journalism is and how important it is that transparency is brought to bear on every aspect of the crypto industry. We maintain that coindesk exists and has a vital role as do other crypto media organizations in this space precisely because there is a lack of transparency. And the more that we can bring sunlight to bear on all of this, the better it is for everybody. It's painful to see such fallout and of course people have lost money in this, but ultimately, if the best practices, the most transparent ways of dealing with assets is what comes out of it, we do believe as do many others that this is how this industry and how broadly the public's interest in it is served best. So we're going to get into all that. I just want to do a quick prime as well just because it's part of my role. As you many of you would know, has a tremendous conference every year called consensus and it's coming out again in April and Austin next year, April 2016, 28. And the listeners of this event there is a discount code we're using the term truth 15 just to play on the transparency prospect. That's the code you can actually get a discount on consensus tickets with that. Anyway, without further ado to explore everything that's happened, consider what are all might mean for the industry going forward. I'm joined by the reporter himself, who had the initial scoop, E and Allison. It's also by Nicolas de coindesk managing editor for policy and regulation, Brad count, our managing editor for markets and by Tracy Wong deputy business editor. Thanks all for joining. Can you just go and unmute yourselves now? Thank you so much. Thanks, thanks, Michael. Thanks, thanks all year. Yeah, you're honored to, you know, I had a couple of things to see, start with based on stuff that was probably not that important. First of all, just like to say, I interviewed sandbank and feedback in 2018 at consensus conference. And he was just struck me as extremely nice job and decent and too loads of time to explain stuff to me and I just want to say that I don't relish I'm not trying to teach anyone down or anything like that and I actually feel sorry in a lot of ways I could just see that first. Second is more importantly. We did that quite a lot of people say, you know, you publish this balance sheet and my editor who's consummate professional 50 years at Bloomberg Michael Nick Peter. Agonized over this and the fact is we told the person that shared it with us that we wouldn't do that. So that is for everyone flying. We didn't do that. We honored that and lastly, I think most importantly, I want to see on the record for everyone. This did not come from binance. This balance sheet did not come to us about binance. So I just wanted to see all that start with, thank you. Yeah, that's great. I'm glad we got that out of the way. And it's important to do so. Why don't you just break down a little bit about what you discovered, right? And why, you know, you realize that you had a big story on your hands. When you dug into the balance sheet and looked at these, particularly the FTT holdings. Hi. Yeah, yeah, I mean, can you sort of just in terms of context? Last month I was a conference like this, downloaded this noises. And I did a call, I did a chat with a guy that he used some dealings with Alameda and he sent to me off the record. It's a lot weaker than people perceive that balance sheet. It actually is. They did have a absolute ton of money last year and it's considerably smaller. And it was following that that I didn't call with another chap when I got home and we were

"Today's featured story is an opinion piece from coin desks, Nicolas de. Our feature today is entitled what the regulator said at D.C. FinTech week. First, we'll start with the narrative. D.C. FinTech week is an annual policy conference organized by Georgetown university school of laws, Chris bremmer. It's a substantive conversation, but I enjoy going as much for the people I meet at the event as I do for the talks themselves. Here's why it matters. I always say I go to events at least partly for the actual discussions and partly to meet fellow attendees. Here's what the speakers at this event had to say this year. Acting comptroller of the currency Michael Sue opens day one, comparing crypto user interfaces to the iPhone's development. But warning that this may trick people into thinking crypto services are similar to traditional financial services, in layman's terms until crypto matures inappropriate guardrails and gates are put in place, it would be wise to limit the scope of activities, commingled within a single crypto firm, a limit on the probability of default, and to limit integration of crypto and traditional finance, a limit on the loss given default. Commodity futures trading commission chair Ross and benham said the regulator's case against okie Dow pretty much had to happen, calling it egregious and so obvious during a one on one with bremer. Quote, it was hardly decentralized, venom said of the Dow, continuing, there were a few individuals who were very much at the center. And as a side note, this is basically what I had guessed the CFTC would say. Since geofenced U.S. users, but it's unclear whether the Dow or its members have found counsel to respond to the CFTC, which it has some time to do. After a judge ruled late Wednesday of last week, that the lex punk army and DeFi education fund can participate and argue about how the CFTC serves notice to the Dao's members. Meanwhile, custodia bank founder Caitlin long took aim at the Federal Reserve over the bank of New York melons announcement that it would offer crypto custody services. Custodia has added to its filing in its ongoing lawsuit against the Federal Reserve bank of Kansas, which is sat on custodian's application for a master account for over a year long said. The filing came the next day. Elsewhere, the director of the U.S. Department of Justice's crypto enforcement team said crypto mixers are a challenge but have not quote slowed us down. This raised my eyebrows because we've heard quite a bit about the risks of anonymity in crypto, potentially boosting wrongdoers. There are three possible explanations. First, the DoJ has a way around mixers. Second, the DoJ is running its own mixer as a honeypot or three director Choi is just saying this to throw off the folks using mixers. Meanwhile, the fed's vice chair for supervision, Michael Barr, warned that banks tokenizing things might be a bit concerning, but also provided some insight into why it might take some regulators a while to write policy, the range of options available for dealing with emerging technologies in those benefits are solid. He said, continuing, one of them is just risk identification so we can carefully enunciate to the world that we see a set of risks and that they should be looked at carefully. And that has an actual effect on behavior. He went on to add that regulators who write rules too quickly may find they've fallen behind the actual technology or area they're overseeing. And finally, representative Patrick M Henry, the ranking Republican member on the House financial services committee, said the long anticipated stablecoin Bill may happen within the next few months, but there's still some ongoing disagreements around regulatory oversight and how the assets are to be stored, quote, we agree on all the components of what the asset is, we've come up with a pretty ugly baby, but it's a baby nonetheless. And that's the end of our article today, but if you're interested in the regulatory side of things, it's highly recommended that you subscribe to coin desk state of crypto newsletter, written by coindesk Nick day. And that's our show for today. Thank you very much for listening this episode was edited by Adrian blast and we'll be back tomorrow with another news roundup and just a reminder that coin desk is a new source and is not provide investment advice.

"Bitcoin is up trading above the $20,000 level this morning, as U.S. stock features suggest traditional markets are in for another down day, following a Wednesday session that erased gains logged earlier in the week. Bitcoin has been trading in a tight range over the last few days, bouncing indecisively above and below the $20,000 Mark. As traders question where the top cryptocurrency will head next. Meanwhile, ether, that's the second largest cryptocurrency by market value is also up. We'll give you an exact pricing in a couple of minutes. Other altcoins posting gains included uniswap's uni token, up 4% and XRP up about 3% crypto markets broadly are almost universally heading up this morning. Now let's take a moment to briefly zoom in on the world of DeFi or decentralized finance for a look at an interesting move. As we discussed at length on this show, adverse macroeconomic conditions have made crypto market participants a bit risk averse. And DeFi has been on the losing end more often than not. However, the early activity in the Ethereum based structured product firm ribbon finances recently launched high stakes lending product would suggest otherwise. Ribbons product known as land went live on Monday, allowing depositors to land on secured funds to institutional market makers of their choosing with high liquidity. The protocol is seen users deposit some 15 million USD C that's the circle coinbase backed U.S. dollar peg stablecoin. Of that, more than 10 million USD C has been borrowed by Alameda backed quad treating firm folk fang trading and market maker winter mute, which recently lost a $160 million in a hack. Quote, we see that there is still demand in decentralized finance for high yields. Users are willing to move out the risk curve if the risk reward makes sense. Julian co, cofounder and CEO of ribbon told coindesk, continuing under collateralized lending to reputable institutional trading firms seems to fit that category well. At press time, the annualized percentage return for loaning out USD C to folk vang and winter mute was nearly 7%. That significantly greater than the half percentage point available on top decentralized platforms like aave and compound. The company describes the product is quote an un collateralized aave, offering best of both traditional finance and decentralized finance. And in contrast, an institution can borrow the same USD C from aave at a much lower cost, but at the expense of locking up another cryptocurrency is collateral. In other words, the borrower stands to lose the liquidity of the collateral locked, which isn't the case with ribbon's product. Meanwhile, lend users stand to make higher yields from unsecured lending to institutions that have been evaluated for their credit worthiness by. And the company says that lenders can exit their positions at any time, subject to available liquidity in the pool. According to ribbon, most unsecured lending and decentralized finances for fixed term, meaning lenders can't withdraw deposits until the loans maturity. Now, separate from this story, this is not an endorsement of this product. Lending money to anyone, much less doing so in DeFi without collateral is an inherently risky activity, which is why you can make more money doing it than the collateralized safer options. We've seen these things blow up before, but it's an interesting data point, and it's a trend we'll be watching. Now, taking a breath and zooming out a bit as we look ahead, traders and traditional markets are once again betting that the Federal Reserve could soon pivot to a softer stance on monetary policy. But what could be a strong U.S. jobs report, at least by official top line statistics that traditional markets pay attention to is dua tomorrow from the Department of Labor statistics. That could give policymakers a pretense if not a reason to not back off, as the economy gets off to a rocky fourth quarter start, and what's already been a brutal year. Bitcoin, which until somewhat recently has traded similarly to stocks, might remain under pressure if that were the case. On the other hand, if the fed does ease off, we're probably back off to the races, so it's an interesting moment. I don't expect that will be the case. Futures traders on the Chicago mercantile exchange now expect the federal funds rate to peak at 4.5% next year. While just a week ago, the expectation was for the rate to go as high as 4.7%. The move suggests that more traders are suddenly anticipating a more dovish approach by the fed in the wake of the Bank of England abruptly abandoning a similar effort. When UK pension funds found themselves at risk of becoming insolvent, in a vicious feedback loop involving British government debt. The U.S. Central Bank has raised interest rates to the highest level since 2007 and continues to reiterate that it won't cut rates until next year. With inflation still at near record highs and with energy prices, a small bright spot in recent inflation data on the rise again, the campaign is far from over officials insist. The president of the Federal Reserve bank of San Francisco said on Tuesday that there is, quote, a lot of room and quote for policymakers to raise rates and that she's not worried about markets right now. Today's crypto coverage comes courtesy of coin desk, markets analysts, helaine Braun, and am cargo boy. Bitcoin is currently trading at $20,043 per token. That's up about one percentage point over the last 24 hours, while ether is training at $1356. That's up about three and a quarter percent over the same time period, according to the coin desk market index. And speaking of the market index, we're currently looking at a reading of 985.45, which represents just under a .5% gain on the day. And before we go to today's traditional markets roundup, let's take a quick look at a couple top headlines. Earlier this week, we reported on revelations that former Celsius CEO Alex mashinsky had withdrawn some $10 million from the now bankrupt lender in the period leading up to its collapse. Today we can add to that number as a new disclosure showed the top three executives with drew a combined more than $42 million in cryptocurrency between May and June of 2022. Right before the company suspended withdrawals and filed for bankruptcy, new court records show. According to a statement of financial affairs filed late Wednesday, former CEO Alex mashinsky, former CSO Daniel Leon, and CTO nuke Goldstein withdrew the funds largely from custody accounts in the form of Bitcoin, ether, USD C and Celsius tokens. Over a dozen other executives, including the company's chief compliance officer, chief risk officer and new CEO, did not make any significant withdrawals during that time period, according to the document, which was one of several filed in the bankruptcy court for the southern district of New York. As we told you on Monday, there is some frustrating irony in this story, as the crypto lender said at the time they froze withdrawals they were doing so because, quote, without a pause, the acceleration of withdrawals would have allowed certain customers, those who were first to act to be paid in full while leaving others behind to wait for Celsius to harvest value from illiquid or longer term asset deployment activities before they receive a recovery. So it turns out that the company wasn't just talking about their CEO. Coin desks Christian sandor and Nicolas de report. Elsewhere a group of Republican lawmakers on the House financial services committee have asked U.S. attorney general Merrick Garland to share the Justice Department's assessment on whether the U.S. Central Bank has the necessary authority to issue a Central Bank digital currency or CBDC. The Justice Department has published two reports in response to president Joe Biden's march executive order on crypto, including one on information sharing on crypto crimes internationally, and one announcing the formation of a group of prosecutors who would specialize in crypto crimes. Another report, which would detail whether Congress has to authorize the Central Bank digital currency has yet to be published. The lawmakers believe that the fed does not have the authority to issue such a token, the letter said, which also pointed to requests from fed chairman Jerome Powell and vice chairman lael brainard, calling on congressional action, quote, as you know, Congress's authority over coining money is exclusive. The Supreme Court is recognized Congress's power to coin money and regulate the value thereof, confirming Congress's authority to regulate each phase of currency. Relatedly, Congress may charter banks and grant them the right to issue circulating notes, and it may restrain the circulation of notes not issued under its own authority, the letter said in part. Coin desk's neck day has more. And finally, swift, that's a key part of the legacy financial system that helps make cross border payments between banks possible. Has presented a framework for its own global Central Bank digital currency system, claiming to have solved the challenge of interoperability between networks. I wonder if that timing is coincidental or just competition forcing them to actually improve their system as they increasingly risk becoming obsolete and thus losing their position of incredible power. The shocking discovery follows experiments involving the central banks of France and Germany, as well as HSBC, Nat west, standard charter UBS and Wells Fargo. The organization said it has carried out transactions between different blockchain networks

"We have a big, big hearing this morning going on in the Senate. And the discussion is about who gets to regulate crypto, basically. And this has been a long time coming and it's still unclear exactly when any definitive decisions will be made. But the discussion at its core is whether the commodities futures trading commission or the Securities and Exchange Commission will have jurisdiction over crypto and of which specific parts of crypto. And we can get into it, but the SEC definitely believes that a lot of cryptocurrencies are securities, which means they're the product of the work of a specific group of people, the CFTC, and I think a lot of people agree that at least Bitcoin is a commodity, which we can talk about what that means. But we're going to, I think, get some real motion here over the next 6 months to a year. And it's going to have some serious impacts. We'll go ahead and jump on. Yeah, this is an interesting little change from a week ago. Nicolas de reporter here at coin desk had an awesome interview with Gary gensler talking about his stance on tokens and he was pretty hardline, right? He was like, we have this written out. This has been known for years, and these crypto projects need to register with the SEC, especially these crypto exchanges need to register with the SEC. Week later, we have written testimony going into this hearing and saying, well, we should provide a pathway for these crypto tokens to register. They are securities, but we need to provide a pathway for them to move in with us and be under our umbrella. So it's a little bit different, right? The first one's a little bit more jaded, a little more energetic saying you need to comply now. You need to figure this out. And the second one is, well, we can help you out a little bit. And I'm wondering what caused the change in thought behind that and if there's a change in thought or if it's just a little bit different because he's writing it out and not quite on the spot, there might be a difference there. One thing that came to mind, however, is there's a lot of tokens out there. Maybe after his language went out there, his staff was looking at this and being like, okay, how do you expect us to chase down all these tokens? I think from the SEC's perspective, if they have to register all of these tokens, like that's a lot of paperwork, that was a lot of compliance work as a lot of oversight. And it makes sense for them to provide some sort of path for all these tokens, which have previously thought they could operate as they wanted to, they decided they could operate as they wanted to. It makes sense for there to be some sort of pathway to bring them under the SEC umbrella if that is the thing they should do. Of course, a lot of these tokens are not going to like that. They see themselves as some sort of money where they see themselves as some sort of utility project out there that's not security. So there's going to be ongoing conversations about this, but definitely some notable words from Gary gensler. I think I saw both Jen and Christie's hand go up, all throughout the gen first. Yeah, we'll use zeroed in on exactly what I did. Gensler's tone seems to have really changed as we look to the Senate banking committee today. And I feel like that is almost because the SEC has shown that they really want to regulate this industry, but the industry has shown more support for the CFTC, right? And we've spoken about this SEC versus the CFTC when it comes to oversight of this industry. And I think gensler is starting to realize he needs to be a little bit softer and actually offer the things he's saying he's offering to the industry for the industry to support the SEC's want to oversee it. And so we've seen the SEC say before come in, talk to us. We're here for you. Let's work on a plan and then turn around and sue the exact companies that come in and talk to them and try and work on a plan. And so for me, this is just all talk. It will be interesting to see what happens after these two hearings. And another story that came up today, you know, coinbase has launched their platform that educates its users on how politicians are looking at regulation. And so if this is something that is interesting to you and something that you want to have a say in, I encourage everyone to go and learn what candidates are saying about regulation ahead of the midterms, but Christie, what do you think? Yeah, I always get a little frustrated with the regulation aspect of things. On one hand, there are definitely some platforms out there and that definitely should be regulated. They fall under a regulatory umbrella that is pretty well defined. But when it comes to a lot of the cryptocurrencies that tokens themselves, there has been so much waffling on the part of defining things over the last 7 years. When you look at Ethereum, for example, when it first launched, I know I've said this many times on other fora that they went to lawyers. They went to the SEC. They went to all kinds of people trying to get some kind of clarity on what it was they were doing and how they could do it within the parameters of the regulatory environment out there. And they basically got shown the door and told you now, ah, it's fine. I'm sure just do whatever. Or we don't know what it is. We're looking at, we'll deal with it later. And then they come back at them and say, oh, by the way, you're breaking the rules that we are only now just making up for you. And that's frustrating. And maybe that is what the SEC really has to learn and where the CFTC is having a different approach to things is they're saying, hey, yeah, it's been kind of sucky for you guys. Let's see if we can make it easier because we didn't make it easier for you when it really needed to be. David? Yeah, I mean, I would say two things, just to clarify, I mean, the overriding reason the CFTC is more appealing as a regulator for crypto operations is because they're simply not that concerned with the activities of the people overseeing the commodities that they're responsible for regulating. They just regulate the futures market. So they're not requiring the kinds of disclosures that you would under SEC oversight, et cetera, et cetera. It's just much more friendly in general as a framework because you would regulate something like Bitcoin where there is no known creator. There is no central administrator whatsoever. It just kind of exists out in the world. In the same way that a natural commodity like coal or silver or something like that exists. So, I mean, that's the big picture reason people like the CFTC. As far as the lack of clarity, yes, it's extremely frustrating. And when I hear gensler say something like we want to pathway, it immediately makes me think of Caitlin long's proposal for a safe harbor that would allow an actual evolutionary process for these projects that acknowledges the idea that maybe the tokens really are there for a utility purpose and for standing up a truly decentralized system and it's very disappointing that that idea has not gotten serious traction as far as I can tell. It seems like something that at least matches the reality on the ground of how these tokens are used once projects really come to fruition.

"With virgin plastics. And so taking all of this into account, do you believe that recycling presents a solution to the plastic crisis that we face? No, I don't. I think the problem we have is the vast increases in production of plastic. Mechanical recycling can not cope with the vast increases, I think we're looking at something like quadrupling virgin plastic production by 2050. That was libel from ipen. If recycling is not the answer, then what should we be doing instead with plastics going forward? Frederick Bauer from lund university is an expert in plastics policy and recently published an article titled plastic dinosaurs. He sounds like my kind of researcher. I spoke to him to find out more about the future of plastics. We heard from Nicolas de Blasio earlier about how plastics are everywhere in our modern society. But how did we end up in this position? The history of modern plastics is one that really took off after the Second World War. So in the 1950s, the petrochemical industry emerged and identified plastics as a very interesting group of materials and really worked hard to find new ways of using plastics in many different domains of our everyday lives. Are the fossil fuel and petrochemical companies just responding to consumer demand given how useful plastic is as a material. I would not say it's fair to say that production is only responding to demand rather there has been a very strategic effort to create demand and to shape demand in a way that really uses plastics to a very large extent. Judith Inc was mentioning that fossil fuel companies see plastics as their plan B as the demand for petrol and fuel goes down. Do you agree with this? Yes, one of the trends we are seeing is that demand for plastics and other petrochemicals is one of the key drivers for oil and gas now that the markets for petrol and diesel are decreasing. More and more we see oil firms investing very strategically, either themselves or in partnerships with plastics and petrochemicals produces. So they for sure seem to be betting on this as their plan B earlier, we also heard about the extensive emissions that occur during the production of plastics. I know you use this concept of carbon lock in your work. Could you explain what carbon lock in is and how this relates to the projected emissions from plastics. So carbon lock in is a concept that connects the idea that technologies are used for specific purposes, but they are also strongly linked to regulations, institutions and practices in society. So technologies become so embedded, they become part of our infrastructure for everyday life. So once we have created this path for how we use plastics, it's very hard to diverge from it instead it becomes self reinforcing. And the foundation for the carbon lock in plastics is that plastics are almost exclusively produced from fossil fuels. So we are locked in to using fossil intensive plastics in many, many different ways in our everyday lives. Given the problems we've heard associated with plastic. Do we need to get rid of them altogether? I don't think that we should say that we can get rid of them that would be foolish knowing that plastics are useful in many applications. However, we need to think carefully about where we use plastics to reduce demand growth. We need to think where we really need these properties that plastics have. We need to think about what is it that we really want to use these materials for. Knowing that there are often many choices, whether those be plastics, steel, other metal, which one would be most sensible to use in that particular application. And which one would have the lowest environmental and climate impact? Could you give some examples of sensible or essential applications where we still need plastics going forward? Yes, I think it's fair to say that it's difficult to see modern healthcare, for example, completely without plastics. But there's still the question to what degree we want to use plastics. How much of the equipment that we use has to be single use and how much can be reused sterilized, et cetera? Earlier in the show, we heard from Lee Belle about how plastic recycling might not be a suitable solution on its own to the plastic problem. Do you agree with this? And if so, what else should we be doing? Yes, the recycling systems that we have developed and deployed so far are not suitable for dealing with plastics in the way that we use them today. So just saying that we should scale up the recycling that we have that will not be sufficient. That's quite clear. Instead, we really need to think about where and how we use plastics from the start. And I think we should think about our consumption practices and how they relate to this exploding use of plastics. For example, textiles, where our consumption of clothes has exploded in the recent decades and that is to a very large degree connected to the availability of cheap polyester. So what do we really need to consume in terms of fast fashion, for example? On the other hand, I think it's also very important to see that this is not something that we are going to solve at the individual level. Rather, we really need to think about how to put pressure on the system. And if you had one recommendation for what individuals can do to put pressure on the system, what would it be? We should all recycle. Our consumables, but that's really just the bare minimum. So what we can do instead is to get organized. In different ways to put pressure on policymakers, decision makers, larger firms that they should make the necessary changes on the higher level for how we really use plastics. Just to end, what do you see as the future of plastics? Unfortunately, what we are seeing is that the industry is still to a large degree betting on an unabated use of plastics, and if we don't challenge that, it's likely that we will see this perhaps even quadrupling in demand for plastics and it would be based on primarily fossil sources with recycling being a very niche marginal activity. However, there is also the.

"With them, it begs the question why do we have so much of it in the first place? I spoke to Nicolas de Blasio from Harvard University to find out more about what makes plastic such a useful material. From a chemical point of view, plastics are made of one or more polymers, basically they are long chains of carbon atoms. And include the well-known names such as polyethylene, which we use in food packaging, automotive parts, and even banknotes, or terephthalate, PT, which is used in plastic bottles. Why do we have so much plastic in the world today? We have so much plastic because plastics have enabled modern life as we know it. Plastic is so ubiquitous in our daily lives that we do not give it much thought. Yet it is everywhere from clothing to chewing gums from tea bags to whitening toothpaste from toys to plastic bottles. Just to give you an idea up to 5 trillion single use plastic bags are consumed every year. And 1 million plastic water bottles are sold each minute around the world. However, the lack of end of life consideration and the high cost of recycling have turned plastic into the victim of its own success and has created a global environmental crisis. We have plastic everywhere in our modern world. But why is it about plastic that makes it so useful? Because plastic are inexpensive, durable and lightweight..

We begin today's program in Russia where the Kremlin is suspending its permanent mission to NATO in Brussels. The move is in retaliation for the expulsion of 8 of its diplomats for spying. And we'll also see NATO's liaisons and offices in Moscow shut their doors. Meanwhile, in neighboring Belarus, French envoy, Nicolas de la cost has left the country after the Belarusian government ordered him out. Local media confirmed that ambassador de la cross departure is connected with his unwillingness to complete the formal presentation of his credentials to president Lukashenko.

The U.S. says it doesn't load the location of a group of American Christian missionaries in their families who were kidnapped in Haiti on Saturday, 16 U.S. citizens and one Canadian were visiting an orphanage in an armed gang seized them. And the Iraqi agriculture ministry says that because of a water shortage, it will reduce by half the area in which winter crops are planted this year. Iraqi officials have complained that neighboring Turkey and Iran don't allow enough water to flow into cross border rivers. This is a globalist. Stay tuned. Now matter of weeks after the United States abandoned Afghanistan to the Taliban, a parliamentary election in Iraq has been won by another enemy of the American state. The Shiite cleric and militia commander mock tedda Al Sadr. Al Sadr's siren Alice alliance was already the biggest party in Iraq's parliament, but significantly increase its share of seats and therefore influence on Iraq's immediate future. I said I will not lead Iraq's next government, but no one will have a greater say in who does. Or to find out what the future holds for the country Andrew Muller had from Brennan Mansour, whose project director of the Iraq initiative at chatham House Andrew began by asking how the next government can entrench some sense of legitimacy when just 41% of voters showed up at the polls. Well, this has been the big story in Iraq for many years now. A growing portion of the population does not believe in the political system that was set up in 2003. If you look at the turnout in the first year, I can't like shin. The first one after regime change, it was almost 80%. It was very high. But each time with every election that passes, the turnout has gone lower and lower. And that is because a growing Iraqi population doesn't feel that this government can provide the basic services. Their basic needs for their daily lives, they think that elections in themselves have just proven to be a reinforcement of the same cast of characters. Iraq has gone through so many different types of conflicts since 2003, yet there's been no accountability that has been no reform and the same leaders continue to govern without any accountability. The key figure as we have been discussing earlier in the program is, of course, Muqtada Al Sadr and though he will not be the next prime minister of Iraq because he declined to stand as a candidate himself, he obviously is even more entrenched in the kingmaker all than he was after the last election. Do we know who he wants to govern Iraq? Who is his preferred prime minister? Well, first of all, I think we shouldn't get ahead of ourselves. He doesn't have a majority. He doesn't have enough to be able to form a government that he could actually run. Every time in Iraq, we've seen that the end result of government formation, notwithstanding elections is consensus government is negotiations back and forth. Now you're right that the subjects have increased their seats and some of their competitors and opponents have lost some seats, which give them a bit more political power to end those negotiations. And as you say, the centers have in the last few years developed an interesting technique, which is to put up independence to put up these technocrats who are weak and not political and instead to focus on the senior civil servants of the Iraqi state to plant inside the Iraqi state powerful people who can then tell the ministers what to do or tell the prime minister what to do. So a power in that way in Iraq has gone down away from what we would think are the powerful people to the second layer. And that's where the saddest focus. And that is their game. And so this allows them to have scapegoats to move away from accountability when they fail and allows them to continue governing de facto. So it's hard to say right now, who the judges will choose, because at the end of the day, it doesn't really matter for the subject. Their key criteria is they want the government at the top level that is weak that is unable, but critically willing to do whatever they want when it comes to contracts, procurement, and the daily politics. Do the saddest and Muqtada Al Sadr, do they have any sense of responsibility to the Iraqi nation or are they mostly just concerned with looking after their own people? I mean, very clearly that has become the name of the game in the Iraqi politics, particularly when the water turnout is low. The reason why the sundress are doing so well is because they have the base that will vote. So an increasing portion of your arts population is no longer voting and keep in mind that a lot of Iraq's population is under the age of 25, two thirds are under 25. They do not remember anything before 2003. And so the saddest are sticking to their base. If you look at this past summer, the two biggest news stories from Iraq in terms of corruption and harm on society. One has been the hospital fires that have killed over a hundred people in Baghdad and nasri and COVID-19 patient wards. The health ministry is largely seen as such as ministry. The other big story has been the lack of electricity, especially as the heat gets up to over 50° this summer. Again, another ministry that is a citrus ministry. The sutures are playing just like every other political party. They generate revenue from the Iraqi government from the Iraqi state and they share it among their own patronage to ensure that when elections do come, they have a base that can vote. That money doesn't trickle down to most people. And even that process of corruption harms Iraqis. If we reflect on those huge protests, which were one of the reasons or actually the real reason that this election was brought forward 6 months, one of the things the protests were about were this sectarian log jam that you describe. Indeed, also, though the comparison doesn't quite fit perfectly, but echoes of Lebanon there as well. Is there any realistic prospect of that changing? Is anybody going to end up in a position in the next Iraqi government? Whatever it is, to actually get across the idea and make it stick that this is one country we do all live here and we do need to find a way to make this work. I think if there's one lesson that we've learned in the last few years, after these popular protest emerged, calling for real reform to that political system. The one lesson that we've learned is the political system is incredibly resilient, and it can outlast protests. Not just outlast protests, but it has stomped on protest. You've seen for the last few years, a systematic campaign of violence that has targeted activists that have targeted leaders who could mobilize. You no longer have protests in Iraq and public squares because the system has stopped that. It's targeted any individual who could potentially mobilize in the squares. You've had the killing of many activists, the jailing of many activists across the south and bath dot..

You say that this is probably one of the best kept secrets. It's a great little festival that you probably haven't heard of. But should, um, it started 15 years ago as a little battle of the bands for Highland Park and Deerfield and other local high schools and over the last decade and a half We have persevered, and it's grown to the point where we don't we don't. We're not able to take all the bands that applies so the quality of the concerts goes up year over year, and this year we're looking at being a four or five state festival, with bands coming in from Missouri and Michigan and Wisconsin and Indiana. And, of course, all across the Chicago Land area, and people are looking for. It's great to say people are looking for things to do in the evening, right on Friday nights and stop by and Sort of check out the music. You sell beer and wine and all of that as well. Yeah, it's fantastic. We have revenue brewing companies there with craft beer and wine. So it it's just a nice laid back. You know, I had a former competitor recently describe it, as they were, like, bitter gesture straddles the line between hyper competitive, battling and laid back hippie music fast and I thought that was a great quote. We'll tell me It's a laid back kind of picnic by but it's really nice. I like that idea. Tell me what the music is like, or does it vary greatly? It varies greatly. The um The scheduling that we do is based more on availability because we're juggling between 25 30 different acts each summer, so it's not like we have a night. That's all. Uh, you know, jazz are all rock. It's a selection, and I actually think that's one of the strength of this particular event. Each group will play for about a half An hour or so, if you come at seven o'clock to downtown Highland part. Listen to some music. Grab a drink. If you don't necessarily dig what you're hearing come back 15. Minutes later, you're going to hear something totally different, And it's just a great sort of format. So the competition starts July on Friday, July 23rd than the 30th the sixth and 13th. The finals are Sunday, September 5th, But you're still open for contestants if people want to try to compete. Yeah, We got a little bit of a late start because of Covid. So we're not normally accepting applications That's close to our opening night. But we will be accepting applications from bands. The only requirement is that at least half of the performers need to be 22 years old or younger. Uh, this is an event that geared toward younger performers, But I don't want that to discourage anyone from coming out to listen, because you know, the the level of the musicianship is through the roof. So we have an applications available on our website. Bitter gesture music dot org and we'll be accepting applications from young performers that are looking to get into this up until midnight. Saturday night. July tense, Okay, good to know solar performers are accepted as well. Yeah, it's you know, it's a challenge to go up head to head against stands as a solo performer, but we've had soloist win. Um it really just is about bringing your a game. You know, bring some originals bring some covers. And like I said, that's part of what makes the variety of this event. So, so nice. But, yeah, we don't discriminate against any particular kind of music, and we certainly don't Discourage solo performers from coming and being part of the festival. So can I sit outside of tamales? Have dinner and hear the music? Yeah, I don't know if you're necessarily going to hear it quite that far away, But when you're done come up, you know a block and grab some gelato from across the street or grab a beer.
