"nimoy" Discussed on Trek Capsule

"Stage even sang on two different albums. Recorded during star Trek's TV run. I always considered you like the Renaissance Man of Star Trek. Because of all the things that you do the wonderful that you that you've done I mean fantastic and actually I have to confess. You actually came to my college back in one thousand nine hundred seventy six railway at William Paterson College in Wayne New Jersey. Oh good I'm glad I took the treat was you. Were you. Were promoting your books when I think of you remember that your poetry and you know we all got a treat of listening to your poetry stage. Yeah Yeah and actually. I had more of a treat for the college radio station. I went backstage and interviewed you with a bunch of other reporters fun. That was a lot of fun. Good so that was a great kick and of course. The directing I mean obviously there is something about being the second in command For for Star Trek. I don't know what it is about going into the director's chair. You've done it in Jonathan. Frakes have done it. I along with many reporters interviewed Mr Nimoy Beckett College in one thousand nine hundred seventy six for my college radio station. I asked him if he would ever direct and a few years. I asked him if he would ever direct and two years later. He started in Star Trek the motion picture and then in one thousand nine hundred eighty four. He directed both Star Trek three and in one thousand nine hundred eighty four. He did just act directing star trek the search for spark and then Star Trek Directing Star Trek. Three the search for spock and then following that up with star. Trek Ford the voyage home one of the most star Trek one of the most successful star trek films ever friend and Coaster James. Doing who was Scotty? Of course on the series and movies talked about Leonard's directing those movies to me and Ernest Louis in one thousand nine hundred ninety six best director wherever Leonard. He talked a lot. The time may director which was number three and number for says if he said to himself. I talk too much so he just would give us one sentence. Tell US exactly how it should be played in. He's just terrific that guy. There's more with Leonard Nimoy on game changers so stay tuned. I am C. Three. Po Human Sidewalk relations name more high and angel. Kobe and I take one of it. And then I this is really behind. I plead in Lord of the Rings. And you're listening Sifi Rodham Prosper after Star Trek Leonard. Nimoy worked in animation and hosted the popular series in search of actually going to be coming back. He also hosted lights camera action on Nickelodeon but spock was not totally out of his life even though he had wrote. I am not spock and then eventually I am spock to successful books about the character and his visions of he voice Mr Spot a company he co founded with John Delancey in a production of spot versus you and in two thousand nine. He returned to that role on the big screen at spot. Prime in the J.J. Abrams Star Trek reboot. It was great to see you in the New Star Trek film here and I'll tell you I remember sitting next to my girlfriend and watching. Us Bach and say. I want to see more of him I said. Do you know how much this has suffered? This character has suffered and he looks relax now went through life death and resurrection. Yeah Yeah I had a good time doing it. I think it's a very good movie. It is a very good movie and spock was used well too for the for the fan boy and all of us the scene between you and Zachary was amazing. That's interesting seeing yet very interesting. Yeah Yeah exactly work. I think it's a very good actor. Invading sellers an actor then came off very well. Well one thing. Jj did very well in. This movie was casting. He really did an excellent job in. You know I mean the effects and all that that'll take care of itself but but if you don't have the I mean the shoes at they're filling digital's it's just talent that that is Somewhat unique that a lot of directors can do the very big special effects movies and there's some directors who can do the personal character moments. But he can do both. And and that's that's not not typical. I think that that's really the measure of his talent that he can do very big picture but he can touch your in the middle of all of that with with the intimate moments. After that he appeared spot primary star Trek into the darkness and his character was more on Star Trek beyond after his passing his relationship with J.J. Abrams led him to appear as William Bell on fringe. Now was it during Star Trek that he recruited you to play William Bell infringe after really well after the call about William. Bell came to me about two months ago. It was long after the had opened so it was a whole other whole other issue. But I I'm enjoying it. I've done two episodes so far The first one was really just a an announcement of my my presence. I just came on on on scene. Essentially simply said. I'm William Bell in the next episode. That I'm in which I think is airing on October. Eighth there will be a much more Much Much more revelatory presence of what William Bell is all about. I think it's GonNa be an interesting episode. This interview was done in two thousand nine and he was far from retirement as we talked about a photography exhibition he had coming. I am doing some photography work. I have a A new exhibition that will be opening at the Massachusetts of Contemporary Art. Next year my first solo exhibition a major museum. So I'm I'm working on that it's It's a series of poor Chris and a forty minute video of my conversations with the with the twenty five people whose portraits are being shown the show because secret selves. And it has to do with secret or hidden or or fantasy lives people coming to be photographed. Secret self very interesting project and I'm very excited about looking forward to the public response. I think it's going to be very interesting. What's interesting too is you know you're from Massachusetts. And you're going home a little bit right exactly so I think Thomas Wilson's wrong well. I keep trying go to Boston occasionally. I'm I'm I really enjoy the city. I think it's a great city and I try to get back once in a while. The impact of Mr Spock. I feel we'll span generations at a convention in Atlanta couple of weeks ago and I I got touching note from a lady. Who Said thank you for your portrayal of all these years as a misfit really up. I didn't look to spot for answers but it helped me to see him. Struggling with the same questions. That was pretty profound. We always had a a a high respect for you but I think even went up a notch. Thank you very much thank you. I mean what you did for Star Trek and science fiction on television. I don't think we'd be watching fringe or an all these things you know. I I have to cover all this stuff. And there's so much out there it's It's started with probably star trek the twilight zone and those those shows in the sixties actually change the nature of science fiction for our audience. I think you're right. I wouldn't be doing this. Podcast without the impact of the twilight zone which Leonard appeared by the way and episode quality of mercy with Dean Stockwell. And of course Star Trek to me Mr Spock character that affects me very deeply and is a voice of reason to me in this chaotic world. If I do anything else in my podcasting career interviewing this man who is truly a game changer will be a favourite highlight. I made him laugh and I can't express what that means to me words. Just don't cut it. I miss you Leonard Nimoy and will love the man you were and the character you help create thanks for listening to a very personal game changers episode. I'm Tony Gelato.

Creating Antimatter: Matter's "Evil Twin"

"Antimatter. I'm so excited to talk to you about antimatter and emily. I know exactly what you're thinking. Anti-matter pods are rigged to blow up the moment we star Trek Right. I mean antivirus. A huge part of Star Trek. All right I know. The Vulcan Salute. Live long and prosper. That's about the extent of my knowledge of Star Trek. But I get your point. Antimatter does kind of sound like science fiction. But it's Real. That's the cool thing. Yes antimatter particles. Are these strange mirror particles to the stuff we see all around us and scientists have made it using a giant particle accelerator in Europe. They're studying it because they hope it can answer some fundamental questions about the universe. Okay not entirely sure I get it but by the end of the episode I assume we all will so today on the show anti-battery what it is how it works and why one scientist has spent decades trying to trap it. Jeff. I have a lot of questions about antimatter. But can you just start with regular matter? What is that? Yeah so a Refresher Viseu. Don't remember regular matter. It's a broad category for everything. So you're madder I matter the studios matter the I I get it matter matter matter. It's a nice thought. Yeah and as matter. We're all made of atoms. So you're a bunch of Adamson the shape of an emily corn on the shape of a Jeff Brumfield now for antimatter. I'm actually going to let another Jeffrey. Who knows a lot more physics? Naidoo answer this one. His name is Jeffrey Angst. And he's a researcher at our House University in Denmark and to Madeira. I think it is kind of an evil twin of the stuff that makes up our everyday world intriguing. Go on it is it is. It's just this kind of opposite matter. It's like this mirror to everything that's around us so antimatter. It's here right now. Yeah I mean it's a little more complicated than that but anti matters real stuff and it exists in our universe and actually before anyone ever even detected it. They predicted it because math. The equations of physics demanded in fact was discovered that way. You know by coming up with a an equation that predicted existence. But nobody was really looking forward and I am not going to attempt to describe the fundamental equations physics on this podcast because I don't really understand them But Hank says the closest analogy. He's got for US mortals to think about. Is this math problem. What's the square root of four two very good? But there's a second solution negative to Aoki because negative negative to four so the way you just went straight to. That's exactly kind of what happened in physics like there were these equations and there was a positive set of solutions for particles and negative side and everyone was like the negative set. What does that even mean? That's nonsense but it turned out there. Were these negative particles. They did exist and they're called antimatter. Oh okay so there's this theoretical idea of antimatter kicking around for awhile. Which kind of explains what it is. But what is it exactly? Here's the thing. It really is opposite matters. So protons do you remember protons. Yeah their positively charged subatomic particles. They are anti. Protons are negatively charged electrons their charged and their anti particles are positively charged. Hey this is kind of amazing. It is kind of amazing. And here's the best part actually lives up to the SCIFI analogy. So just go with your vestigial Sifi brain and I get it emily. You're more of like Colin Firth. Pride and prejudice. Bbc D. You know no shame in it. There isn't there isn't I've seen it probably more times than you have in my life but what do you think happens when matter? Antimatter get when they actually meet okay. If antimatter is the evil twin they fight they dual. They do lake in Jane austen novel. They do well. You're not too far off. I'm going to let the actual experts explain it to you. My her Antimatter tendency to. Cancel each other out. Where's this under certain conditions when to identify articles of matter? Antimatter meet these experts. Jeff Captain Kirk and is that Leonard Nimoy as relationship. Yes total complete absolute annihilation as stock. It is that's right and you're right that Star Trek season one episode twenty seven original track the best track. But here's the thing heavily. It's actually a hundred percent accurate or close. The Universe won't end if antimatter and matter meat. But the two particles disappear in a flash of light. The anti-matter can't exist in the presence of matter. That's where the science fiction stuff comes in. These things really do annihilate each other if you get them together okay. So I've covered a lot of physics over the years and this is pretty much the only case where the sci-fi and the reality match although I will say annihilation is actually a lot less sexy in real life. It's really just annoying to have to deal with something that you have to make and that the universe is trying to destroy and every every every turning point that's hard to be an antimatter physicist I it is. I mean he's literally been doing this since the ninety s and like he does get a little frustrated. All right you said earlier that antimatter. It's here in this universe but this universe is full of matter. I don't see any antimatter lurking around. So where is it if it's exists in theory but it's hard to find in reality. I don't get this you know who else doesn't get it. Every physicist on earth like this is one of the fundamental questions the equation say there should be as much anti matters. There's matter but in practice. Antimatter is actually super hard to find and Hank says nobody knows why there aren't any good ideas about this. I mean physicist. Ducey little. Bits of antimatter here and there. In fact anti electrons I discovered in cosmic rays coming from deep space way back in the nineteen thirties. And actually I've got another natural source of antimatter. Right here in the studio emily in this room. Yes ready yes. Data this banana. What are you talking about? Is this a real episode? This is an episode. About nothing and Tomfoolery. Mom Can I hold the banana to make sure it's real Alex Lane? Yes okay so obviously. The banana is not anti. It's it's matter but here's the thing about bananas. Bananas are full of Potassium. Which is really good for you. But there's also a radioactive isotope of potassium into banana. Call Potassium forty. This is a naturally occurring isotope So some Porsche. The potassium in the banana is potassium. Forty now here's the thing. Potassium forty when it decays eight usually releases an electron but very very very very rarely it releases and anti-electron so if we just hold this banana

Who Would Win: The Death Star vs. Unicron

"Another episode of who would win a show that completely ignores anything important happening in the world and instead focuses on the fictional battle between two characters from the world of comic sci fi and fantasy. I'm your host james gadsden ozzie and as always i'm joined by my co host race aquinas ray. We've had some titanic that was before but i believe today's battle. Maybe the biggest one we've ever had. I'm glad lead you said it because we've never had a battle of the proportion of this one. We're talking planetary level literally literally early planetary level. This is a wild one to do. I actually have a planetary level of hatred for one of the characters today. Can you guess which one will since the death star. I'm going to assume yuna krahn correct. You know why i know why would you have any with the planet eater. Here's the deal okay as we all know so. I have a lot of admiration respect men love if you will for our savior hopeful presidential candidate for twenty twenty maybe twenty before mega truck leader of the septic. We were both huge mega tron fans right and we're both still very angry about that battle against king kong going the wrong way right. I have no idea how you lost that and i feel like a tortured soul for going against megaton but you know i had to do it but here's the deal i really i really i <hes> i'm so emotionally i guess so much angst against unicorn but what does that do with megatrend in utica. What are we talking here. Here's the deal was the last time we saw mega tron in the nineteen nineteen hundred cartoons during the g one correct and that would be transformers the movie which featured unique ron. That's right and what what did you do to matron. He killed him and he brought him back as galveston. That's i wouldn't say he killed him. He sort of just he was almost eddie saying i can still function i'm good he kind of got absorbed by macron and then remade as galveston right so matron bottom line disabuse gone he was pretty much done with the transformers universe the universe anyway that moment correct until he came back and later forms later series absolutely but give me fair you were going to take anything away from galveston right now. He's voiced by leonard nimoy and i will never go against spock doc okay. Here's the deal there's nothing against leonard nimoy or or you know spock when there's a jackpot. Is it the mega millions or the galvin million i would. I would take either okay you. You have no money so of course but here's a deal mega. Tron is the leader of the deceptive cons what happened when galveston took over what happened. The deceptive accepted cons. They went downhill. They had to re- reformed again. That is absolutely correct. That's right so they were also in service to ukraine who got blown out right. So what are they doing like the yeah horrible horse to the right star bingo. Today's battle for me is personal and i am gunning for yuna ron sherve the autobahn. Kinda took them out but i'm going to do it even better with the deaths. Are i mean i don't see how based on what i know about both the death star and unicom but i'm excited sighted to hear you try okay ray. I've really gone deep of the research in in my hand. I have an envelope now.

"A good TV, huge with Spock. Before he was sparked the four Star Trek. Yeah. That's right. I'm pretty sure he was on what he did you know that dragon dragons, a big Trekkie Spock was on the government to take your word for that because I don't know that for sure. Spock was on Leonard nimoy, Leonard nimoy. I'm almost sure he was on mission impossible. Yeah. Yep. How about a petticoat junction was never a huge petticoat junction guy.

We've had a bunch of callers. Jack Webb was dragnet, Jack Webb remember is less than n Leonard nimoy was actually on Star Trek. And then mission impossible just -nology of it start there. He got news on mission me too, because I never watched Star Trek. News on some episodes a combat. I was not a fan where you fan of Star Trek. Yeah. Same here. I just didn't get my my interest at all. We're going Elias Ilias Elias. Yeah. Eli. He's got a Johnny quest okay? We lost maybe. No is here. We think pretty quiet. Yeah. Maybe we lost Vic as well. Oh, we lost both of our, Johnny quest callers. We lost Elias was going to say race Bannon wasn't Johnny's? Daddy was the bodyguard are never name race Ben.

"And you know, I've had a couple of screens where I've gone to screenings with the director or the cemetery for the producer. And I've had, you know, very resonating moments where it's like, I see those decisions were made as a director as a creative has an individual trying to put their heart and soul into their project, and you know, be very fearless with it. And it it it's earth shattering earth shaking, and in some of your bones of like, it feels so good. And it's also like relieving of like all the tension that you have to yourself. So I mean to yourself like don't have to be Jeff nimoy fan. You don't have be AMI fan. But if you're a fan of, you know, going out there, and you know, trying to do what you love and get it out there to as many people's hands or eyes or ears. This film will. Resonate with you. And it's I like I said I emailed you everyone at home just know everyone in this room. Now I emailed him separately. I was just like. Is so good. And I was you know, you can ask corey's wife was talking about this movie for hours. Like, I can't believe that this film is here being homegrown made. Yeah. And then, you know, sorry Bullshits being made zero heart in zero like. Dollars. Are you shooting? My nuts. It's a really honest it tackles, a little heart comedy tackle, some serious stuff as well. In the midst of it, all it's very tactfully. Very well. Like, it feels doesn't feel like now we're going to deal with this thing. We wanted the edge. It's very natural. It's it flows. All very well. And honestly. Like ninety if I could have gone for another. The jokes are really great now. It's perfect. Yeah. Oh, yeah. I shoot I stuff the writing obviously, like you've definitely written for years more than I've ever written. You know, like more than I had says more than most time I've been conscious. Just like this. Yeah. You know what I get it? Because he's written for such a long time for on samba casts for everyone to have a great like individual personalities, and for them to coalesce in a way, where like you get dynamic interactions between the two it's like this was cool to see for sure as someone like with Tom. I I write comedy. That's like outside of Don is what I do. I write I read the the web series around. And it's nice to see a lot of like, I get that. I understand that. But it was really nice to see. Thanks very much every she especially on the like, they write comedy and whatnot. And they can appreciate all the jokes and the the writing aspect, and I come from the con- world that is where I live. I have been to many many many many of them and you have captured the convention experience. The best dollar ninety ever. So true. And and it's funny like ten years ago when I I I was I was invited to a convention in nineteen ninety eight while I was doing digital on. And you're like you wanna come down to this convention in San Diego. And do this thing. I'm like what is it? It's called comic con on my guys. Like who's going to be on the panel with me? And they're like four losers on like, no, I am not going do this forget it. I'm not doing it. And then like years later like go down to the comic on like that thing. Still going on. Now, you know, I'm like going to kill somebody get famous in there. Yeah. Right. For we wrap things up. I do have one question for our listeners who you know, know, you as a fan Alterman, everything you before our other ups owed, we didn't get a chance to talk about it. But you have a thing for complex. I think for comic books. I'm also a Star Wars nerd, yeah.

"That was all a dream. Hey, then maybe I haven't been a hideous drunken wreck. Perfection that I have to say that. Josh I love that joke with the cigarettes coming out of that. And we use our mission hill, you I'm sure you saw there and the pilot where the dog coughed up the cigarettes. And also I should say that that I looked at. I've listened to that speedway squad theme over and over and over again, I love it so much because as Alf close and our composer said a lot of the guys used had played musical themes for like medical center and shows like that in the sixties it was L. Thank is you can get. So we were delighted by that. Also, one part that was cut out of the script just for link. Like this script is way way too long. As typical the this was the speedway squad was Leonard nimoy first television appearance because it used to say starring starring Montgomery burns, and this and starring lend nimoy as the wingnut excuse way. Here's their pit crew guy waving bye. Amazing. I want that spinoff right now. I mean, I love all of be like invented pop culture within the world of Springfield, the Simpsons. And these like little like tearaway shows it just because it feels like such a complete idea that you want more of it. And I think that that it just adds so much color to the world, which is what makes it so fun. Absolutely. So in part two we really are reminded again of how bad the police officer. William is. Not that you really need much reminding about that topic favorite actor before you realize he's interviewing he's talking about the two suspects. And it is Maggie. And it's a little helper. Little did he know he was actually on the right track. And we get least explaining again, you know, everyone has a reason to kill burns. And everyone's talking about how Smithers it and he says, yes fingers. Did it? Smithers is is in such a state. Maybe some some of us have been here where we don't remember our night before. Right. Kind of like, maybe he did kill us. It's it's really like you're watching this guy. Like turn inside out. It's like so brutal for him. I really love that. I think around this time when he goes he so wrought with guilt that you decided to go confess at the church and says, I think I shot mister burns. And then the window opens. It's chief Wigan. Yeah. That was effective or whatever he says. I love that twist. Yeah. But it's funny because he he says a line that crusty says he ripped off. And then Mel reminds him that he rep that line off from the comedy central show. What was the name of the company central Zinger, pardon my Zinger and? And. So Mel of all people is the person realized that it couldn't have been Smithers. And so he he rushes over, and I believe we have this clim. And when he.

Because that's the that's the one that everybody knows an uneasy feeling when I watched that. Do you get that? Uneasy feeling? Was that normal when it was released back in those days Asher? Okay. People blowing we'd all over the place. So, but yeah, so that was Leonard Leonard nimoy or Leonard nimoy. So if you want to jump in here. Three one two nine eight one seven two hundred is the is the phone number and coming up, we're going to be talking about the summer song the biggest summer songs for each year because we would like to maybe think about summer now, and you know, to get our minds off of what we're going to get over the weekend, which is going to be some snow and some cold. So we'll think about summer songs does anybody. Remember songs that that maybe you listened to in the summer. Dan was Ernie one that popped into your head. You know, especially when I was paying more attention to music when I was younger, man, you know, I most associated summer music with weddings. Yeah. So Canada wedding song that featured most prominently when a lot of my friends were getting married where. And it's not a good song. And it's a guilty pleasure. But the black eyed peas, I've got a feeling because it was played pretty much every wending I attended for three years, and it was always kinda fun because they brought people who might not dance of the dance floor. And then the people who were people who dance at dance at weddings, always seem to have like a stick to it. And I was very happy when I attended a Jewish wedding. And I could actually sing the line molotov. Yeah. And actually mean it, and you know, so that's kind of a song I associate with summer. I can see that. Well, I have the summer songs these hot tunes are ranked based on each track's performance on the billboard hot one hundred during the summer. For the period of nineteen Ninety-one. And before prior to the advent of the Nielsen music radio monitoring points of sale data the rankings are based on an inverse point system with the weeks. Number one, earning the greatest value in weeks, number one hundred earning the least for the years corresponding with the Nielsen music data nineteen ninety two onward the ranks are based on accumulated radio and sales points and points in the other data that are included in that one hundred during those respective years. So. Let's see I go to the year of my birth. What was the? What was that? The number one summer song. Wow. This is pretty good. I'm looking at the boy this top ten. Of the summer, and I was born in the summer. So this is this is not bad right here. Because the number one song of the number one summer song in nineteen sixty five was I can't get no satisfaction by the Rolling Stones. That's pretty good. And then number two would be I can't help myself sugar pie. Honey, bunch by the four tops three. I got you babe by Sonny and Cher. And you didn't get the even have to hear it every single morning like Bill Murray dating groundhog day help by the Beatles. I'm Henry the eighth. I am Herman's hermits and also you didn't have to hear Patrick Swayze sing at nine thousand times like what be Goldberg had to in ghost Mr. tambourine man by the birds. What's new pussycat by Tom Jones? Yeah. So that's a that's a good list. Daniel born in eighty one right? Yes. So the summer songs of nineteen Eighty-one. Let's see we got here. Okay. Okay. Oh. Dan. Are you ready? Yes. Jesse's girl by Rick Springfield. Song is a jam. Some of the other ones that were hot summer of nineteen Eighty-one year. You're born Betty Davis is by Kim. Kearns.

Well, cut Wednesday. Yes. Very catchy chewed, right? Yeah. George Costanza does a a bit on Seinfeld. Oh, really believe it or not George is in at home. Where can he be believe it or not?

That would be at least a decade later nine hundred seventy one how can you mend a broken heart by the BG's was the big summer song that song? That's a great. That's a great song. It's too late.

"America Brad young sitting in for the vacationing Ryan recor I'm glad you stuck around after the cardinals game because one of the things we talked, about right after the, cardinals game was the was pitcher John Gannon. My goodness he's as much as, a home run hitter now he is as a pitcher but one of the things that he uses to great advantage over the batter's Volkan grip and. My great friend John Sloan onto to debris that, down but now Jack. Is, calling, in the tell me I'm confused about something listen I I. Can tell you every name of every Star, Trek episode I can. Tell you who the producers are who the directors are, so I don't know that I'm confused? About anything Jack but what's on your mind this evening Okay there was an old welcome, grip it was the Vulcan nerve pinch To by Leonard nimoy in the early nineteen sixties and the first time we, used it Leonard nimoy used it was, on William, Shatner, as captain Kirk, and, the episode was, the, enemy was and Jack I, you know what Jack I'm hearing Kirk Jack I'm what I'm hearing, is is that. You spent a? Lot of hours at. Home by yourself watching Star Trek am I. Right you are absolutely right I nailed fan for, forty five years hijack I appreciate you calling in this evening because yeah I could just tell from the from the passion that you had describing. The Star Trek episode that. That those were comments, of a single man it was watching Star Trek I could tell you but, I also have to confess before we get back to these. Lofty things and I want to hear, from AJ in just a, moment but before we get, back to that I have to tell. You I actually met Leonard nimoy one. Time I gotta tell you this I went to a. Star Trek convention I'm, sorry to. Admit it was before I was Married so that's okay but I went to. A Star Trek convention it was me and a, couple, of buddies of mine and we read, the Henry the eighth. Hotel and, we're at the. Henry the eighth hotel and we're getting we're going to go get a soda and they were selling soda in these little Dixie cups for like a buck fifty and folks I'm a cheap guy and I thought a, dollar fifty, for, a Dixie Cup, I'm, not paying a, dollar, fifty for a Dixie Cup, of soda so I told my buddies I said come on let's, wander through the. Hotel and I? Bet you we can. Find a soda machine and at least we. Can get a big bottle of soda because it's, hot it was very hot one hundred and five degrees it was an August afternoon in Saint Louis so we're wandering through the hotel and we. Find a soda machine and. We're laughing about all, the weird people at the Star Trek convention and out the door down a, long hallway walks out Leonard nimoy any points to me and. I'm a senior in high school at, this point and so he, points to me and he, says hey you come here and I. Said me you're talking to me 'cause. Yeah you come here so I walked down this Entire long hallway and wondering why does Leonard nimoy Mr. Spock himself why does he wanna talk to, somebody like me so I get about I don't know ten, feet away from his hotel room door and he says hey you're too loud close those fire doors you're bothering me and so he. Starts to slam the, door in my face and I literally put my foot. In front of the door and I wouldn't let him slam the. Door and I said and, I pointed, my finger, right at Leonard nimoy because, now mad I'm like dude you made me walk all the way down this hall and you could just shut the doors yourself I. Mean come on you're, trying to stick it to. Me so I had my finger in his. Face and I said hey don't forget pal you were once in, a movie called zombies of the stratosphere and so he paused he starts laughing because I remember this silly movie was, in and, then he, proceeded to slam the door even though my foot was in the way slammed. The door my face and I never saw him, again, so yes that is my one brush, with greatness when it. Comes to, Leonard nimoy I. Do want to get to AJ but we only have a couple of? Minutes here before the break and I really want? To hear from AJ, because he has some ideas on what divides us as a, country and we're, not, talking about whether, you're a Star Wars, fan or a. Star Trek fan that's not really what divides us as a country and age as a former marine and I want to give him time to talk and we're coming. Up on a, break here in just a moment but what I do want to, hear from, him, so AJ if you could hold on a minute I'm gonna get to you after this particular brake. This coming, up in, just a minute but one of the. Things I was talking about before their frivolity of Star Trek, was, was John McCain's. Farewell statement and and he was talking about that we're a. Nation of ideals not. Blood and soil he was talking about the that the United, States has helped liberate more people from tyranny and poverty than than ever before in history, and so those are things that we should that we should. Unite around, as Americans and we can we should be able to say you know, we can disagree on some things but we can agree on these other things and that's what it really means to be an american i had my buddy on john sloan what i didn't mention is is that a john sloan and i have been best of friends since one thousand nine hundred eighty s and he and i are as different politically as anyone can possibly be and yet we're best of friends and one of the things that we like to laugh about his star trek but the point being is is that that even though we disagree on some major political issues we can still be best of friends we don't attack each other personally or or question are our parentage because we disagree on one political issue or not and so one of the things that i really like about what john mccain did in his final statement was talk about the fact that that we're a nation of ideas and try to find out what what brings us together as americans so that we can identify as americans as opposed to being identified as as what he calls it as being tribalism and so or tyranny so When, we get back from, the break I want to hear from AJ. Because he's got some ideas if you've got ideas on. What you think unites us as a. Country I want to hear, it I want to discuss that with you and we can have a dialogue and what it means to be an American three one four four three six seven nine hundred is..

Through popular music and its impact on science and NASA and culture as we have it today. And then we'll do open lines coming up at the top of the hour so Jason.

Are used in real? Life Excellent point stay in the high ground Josh and let me get Jason Hellers response to that yeah absolutely and you know one. Thing that wound up being the kind of the most concrete expression of that was when, the prototype for the space shuttle was rolled out in nineteen seventy six and of course there'd been a big letter writing campaign to have it named, the enterprise and it worked not only was that first, shuttle, named the enterprise when it was unveiled out on the tarmac by personal invitation from by NASA were was the actual cast of Star Trek Leonard nimoy and William Shatner in the whole. Crew, there. For it which, kind of brought things you know full circle you know it had been a decade since Star Trek and it had entered popular consciousness through reruns in syndication to the. Point where people actually wanted a real space ship not just any spaceship but the next, spacecraft in the whole new phase of NASA space exploration the spacecraft of the future as it was you know kind of build at the time they, wanted it to be named the enterprise And it's one of, those kind of really beautiful moments I think, and where, there's this exchange between pop culture and real life science and technology and exploration Not to, mention the, fact that then to those attendees Leonard nimoy and William Shatner were also recording artists sorta And actually Nichelle Nichols, as well lesser known in the seventies of course who played a Harare on the show also released. Some music which is pretty captivating an interesting and I, actually do, talk about that in the book as well I I I came across this little, factoid I thought was interesting was that Julie London torch singer. From, the fifties and early sixties who later goes on to have probably your best known role in the TV show emergency I think her character's name was Dixie. Or something but anyway is, she is, the artist as a recording artist Julie, London was the woman, who was played most to the astronauts in during the space program is part of the wakeup calls No interesting it's you know I There's a and I believe you've written about this happens you about the whole history of what actually the musical relationship is between popular music and Capcom in particular and the capsule and how they. Used to wake up the tunes they used to play some of them dreadful that they would play to wake, up the astronauts in the morning, like all of that herb Alpert. Which is okay a little bit but I don't think that's the first thing I want to hear what I'm in space, and? Sitting bull from it's jarring right the juxtaposition of being in outer space in hearing. Something. Like. Hearing, Spanish flea, by And that honk honk thing or let's get to Dobie who's, in? Ohio east of the Rockies for Jason Heller go ahead pronouncing that right, w Dobley Oh Doppler thank you, go ahead Hey so, first and foremost in a, pleasure to be honest with you I always. Enjoy whenever you host the show now I've been hearing you speak of, a lot of older older musician so I wanted. To, touch on for, newer musicians well the first one actually. You've been speaking of David. Bowie just a quick anecdote there I thought that the black star was a very. Appropriate swan, song for David Bowie I mean, he was on his, way out but then I you Jim for Asian for Trent Reznor of, nine inch nails with David Bowie and he went on to release an album, by the title of year zero which is set, in a not so far off its hoping future where everybody, everything is being monitored and tracked. And, there's. A resistance. Against that And then another artists is thirty seconds to Mars there especially their first album that came out self titled, it's it's another full on concept album that I believe probably. A. Little bit further in the future? And, then the final would be Our Lady, peace virtual machine which is, an entire concept album about about machines becoming. Finci and and then one last thing is the nine inch nails your, zero was actually slated to be a TV show. But, that never panned, out which is bad I would've loved. You watch that but I. Was just curious if if either you were familiar with either of those three artists. Are shirt, sure by just also you should, know then the period, that he focuses on here is up to about one thousand nine hundred, eighty so that's why we haven't talked about any of the other artists is, a ton of and you're right about those but, we have a bunch of people hanging on for you Jason, did you wanna comment on one Yeah would love to absolutely absolutely real quickly I'm a also a music critic for pitchfork and the Atlantic and. An NPR and I absolutely love so many of the current, science fiction influenced artists some of whom you just mentioned great ones and you know there's all kinds of artisan groups carrying. On that tradition now as I mentioned my book focuses, on the seventies and and of this heyday. Of science fiction influenced. Music but. You know today we have aren't be artists like John Manet we have rock groups like co heating Cambria. The. There's all kinds of people out there still continuing these traditions and the ones you mentioned as well and and it's amazing to. Me to see how that echo is how how it continues and and there's this tradition of science fiction music now, that we're actually in the future that a lot of these. Bands. From the seventies were singing about Forty years ago not to mention the genetical is featured as an actress in the movie The figures movie what was the figures about space program so closing that loop really get, to?

Do you talk about them in your book are you familiar with them I knew absolutely, I, have. Yellow magic orchestra and really cheap Sakamoto, in there, at the very tail, end yes absolutely you know as a band that was you know bringing this new form one of the bands at the time bringing in, new forms of electronic music and not just the way that say composing Created music, which in itself. Was futuristic but the way you know? Their music really kind of reflected this new perception this new kind of urban reality that was coming into being as technology, was, accelerating, around everywhere and. The disparity between accelerating technology and economic depression. And a lot of major metropolitan. Areas and yellow magic orchestra were able to kinda. Some all that up in a way that was really kind of upbeat in a in a lot. Of ways and the influence so many artists? Of course beyond that you? Know they were. Hugely influential band that doesn't get mentioned as much which which is of course a little, bit, of.

The, space program is part of the wakeup calls Interesting it's you know I There's I and I believe you've written about this happened to you about the whole history of what actually the musical relationship is between popular music and Capcom in particular and the capsule and how they used. To wake up the tunes they used to play some of them dreadful that they would play to wake up, the astronauts in the morning like, all of that herb Alpert which. Is okay a little bit but I don't think that's the first thing I want to hear what I'm in space and?

Everybody's everything is being monitored, and tracked and. There's, a resistance. Against that And then another artists is thirty seconds to Mars there especially their first album that, came out self titled it's it's another full on concept album that? I? Believe probably a little bit further? In, the future and then the final would be Our Lady peace virtual. Machine which is an entire concept album. About about machines becoming thin and then one last thing is the nine. Inch nails year zero was actually slated to be a TV show but. I never panned out which is bad. I would've loved to watch.
