Oh yeah on the bed of a pickup truck in front of a diner in queens and do they put like a stool up there with a bottled water. There was a mike stand. I don't know if there was still did you. How was your memory of your sach. I mean i was rusty. But i was like. It's your fault for coming to the first comedy show which began laureate. Do miss doing stand up or you. Happy for the break i do that. I've been to mean a all may stand up shows in my bedroom on. Yeah and i constantly have to worry that.

Are you doing more devastating. When somebody put their car in reverse during show. So laurie aaron. We have a game for you. Sound good read excellent so as you know. Fully artists are the people who create the sounds. We hear in film and television. So this audio quizzes called foley moly play a movie sound effect and you are going to guess how the sound was actually made. But don't worry. This is multiple choice. So you'll have some thing to choose from and you're going to be competing against each other so we're going to go back and forth Starting with aaron okay. Okay all right. This is godzilla from nine thousand nine hundred fifty four. Well that was weird. That was a weird one. Okay how was that sound created was it created a breathing through a scuba divers mask be rubbing a leather gloves coated in pine tar resin against the strings of a double bass or see withholding coffee from a mother of four. Well i mean. I'm sure it's probably two of those definitely. Sounds like coffee with your. I don't remember. Hey so i am going to say the pine tar and the base absolutely. That is correct. Any answer that contains the word resin is the right answer was no other byzantine and the sound designers for the two thousand and fourteen version. Say the roar differently. They captured sounds at frequencies that humans can't hear and pitched them down in the studio so they sound like they're fine. This is for you lori. This army chant is from the second lord of the rings movie the two towers. What are we really hearing there.

That Good Night With Sunita Puri
"We're talking with dr sunita puri who works at the keck school of medicine at university of southern california as the daughter of a doctor sue. Nita grew up watching an admiring her mother's work so my mom's job was literally part of our household. I really think of medicine as the fifth person or concept living in our home in addition to my parents and my brother. And i and i really vividly remember. I must have been five years old. And i remember her leaving at probably four thirty five in the morning to drive from where we lived in evansville indiana to louisville where she was a resident in kentucky and i remember her in her blue blue font and her surgical scrubs and every day. I would hear her getting ready to go. It's like i was time to wake up at that time. And i would just start crying. I try to grab onto her legs so she wouldn't go. My dad would have to pull me off of her. I think my brother was an infant at the time so he doesn't remember this. But i always had this deep craving for my mother to be around more than she was and at the same time i remember being like probably six years old and going to the hospital with her and her holding my hand and us going into the post anesthesia. Care unit. she's an anesthesiologist. So after her patients came out of the operating room she would go check on them and so she took me with her. And i must not have been really even tall enough to see much over the hospital beds of these patients. But i remember my mom letting go of my hand and holding. Her patients hand that movement of her hand stands in my mind very clearly because she did put her hands on patients. She touched them with her hands and with her words and she would tell them. You did great in surgery house. You noncha- how's your pain. What can i do to help you feel better now that the hardest part is over and i just remember looking at her and the tenderness of her voice was the same with her patients as it was with me and i'll never forget the smell in the post anesthesia. Care unit of this kind of mix of clorox and some other very tough cleaning agents. I'll never forget the moans. I heard from patients who needed pain medicine. And i'll never forget how my mother would not just look down at them. She'd often pull up a chair so that they didn't have to crane their necks and she was i level with them and that to me really showed me not just how you can be a doctor but how you can be a human being connecting with another person. That was what soon nida envisioned for her life. That kind of connection. I was very conflicted about whether to go into medicine. I always have had the heart of a writer in a more creative person played piano classically for many years. I read voraciously. I wrote horrible teenage poetry. And i always had this more artistic bent me and in college. I really struggled with whether i want to go into medicine or whether i want to teach english in high school whether i just want to be a writer on my own terms and what ultimately led me to medicine was because i really wanted to be in the world as my mother was and knowing that that was her way of contributing to the betterment of the world it was always something that had this gravitational pull for me. I also really loved anatomy. Physiology biology and figuring out how those things interact with someone psyche so it was always there but i really decided not to go as a time writer because that pulled a little harder at me.
Tennessee Issues Statement on Termination of Nine Employees and Jeremy Pruitt
"Tarrant tennessee. No parting of the ways. No resignation fired. Jeremy pruitt after an internal investigation the chancellor of the university chancellor plowman earlier today the personnel actions. We are announcing. Today are an indication of the gravity of what we've discovered today. Athletic director fomer and i issued termination letters to the following assistant. Football coaches brian. Nita meyer and shelton felt also four members of our on campus football recruiting staff additionally our director and assistant director of football player personnel and finally a football analyst quality control coach. So what are what are Council has told us is it. We're looking at level one and level two violations. I don't know yet yet. Exactly how many or exactly the specifics of it the chancellor earlier today and we have the live coverage here blake top. Mayer has covered the story from the beginning and he joins us early evening from knoxville blake. Good evening thanks for being with us and before we get to specific just describe. What this day has been like in knoxville. Well obviously the big news that we've been waiting for call for a probably at least a month now and in the the question for at least the lack last week or more has been. Is jeremy Going to get outright fired for cause or is he going to get fired with a settlement for reduced by out. I mean i. It felt like inevitable that a coaching change was coming. And we've got the answer today. That pruitt's being fired for cause. Tennessee does not intend to pay him. One cent of his twelve point six million dollar buyout also included in the four. 'cause firings Were systems. Brian eater myron shelton felton in the termination letter to jeremy pruitt tennessee chancellor plowman outlined six four. 'cause provision of jeremy pruitt's contract University believe he violated and of course all stems to be ongoing investigation into sweeping recruiting if violations That have occurred or are believed to have occurred within tennessee's program during pruitt's watch like so many things unpack the chancellor said. She threw her own program under the bus. And i understand the tendency to pile on but having covered many of these before as you have. That was really unprecedented address. That if you don't mind it's obvious that the chancellor is frustrated beyond frustrated with the the amount of malfeasance that i think she sees within the football program. I mean these. I think it's fair to call these sweeping violations. And what she believes they're going to be major violations. stemming from the football program She she mentioned that she was stunned. By both the number of interactions and the number of people involved in the infractions. And so you know. It doesn't leave tennessee in a great position to come out on the other side of this and say you know hey. Nca take it on us there. There really wasn't that much bad going on here. You know you've seen a lot of athletic departments kind. Play that card with the ncaa play hardball with the ncaa and say that they weren't breaking rules. I think tennessee is is quite clearly taking me approach of Of admitting its its mistakes. upfront here Firing the people that believes are responsible for the mistakes and then going forward is going to have to pivot and try to likely self imposed penalties and hope that that can fend off Some of the harshest punishment from from the ncaa but it does leave it in a difficult scenario here as it goes forward not only with the ncaa but as it tries to hire and athletic director and it tries to attract a football coach.
How to Get a Good Night's Sleep
"You'll sleep isn't quite right harrison. Things i think might be helpful to just get things back on track and before we get into tips though i just wanted to say do you feel as though sleep is the first thing to go when we experienced any kind of stress for me. It's really good. And it's just an indicator that i have a few more taps open in my brain than i can adequately cope with and that means that my thoughts begin wearing at three o'clock in the morning or my quality of sleep over the course of an entire evening just isn't good enough and sometimes it can be just because i've got too much on my mind and this leads me nicely into one. So if you are waking up worrying and then it becomes impossible to switch off and go back to sleep or if you find it a struggle to get to sleep because you're thinking all the things a on your plate essentially then making a list of all of them making a list of everything that's on your mind before you go to bed might help. It's been proven. I've spoken to several sleep therapists and sleep. Experts said that just the act of making a list of all the things that you on your mind can take the magnitude out of these things that seem really big because you attach all the other things to it like. Oh i've got to my taxes for example. And if you don got to do. My taxes means speech my accountant. I get really stressed. When is mike has an all. Will he have time for me. All of those things actually making a less kind of gets rid of a lot of that chatter and just makes them feel much more doable and is also really good. The next morning right. That's my to do list. They were with me yesterday. They were my mind. I'm going to do something today to make sure that that's not worrying me tomorrow. And it's been proven that a few minutes of mindfulness can take the edge off and make it much much easier to fall asleep so if you get into bed you're white awake will now. What actually whether you use an up whether you use a prompt of some sort a youtube video just counting your breath and just slowing down your breathing. But if mindfulness whether it's guided or not can we really make that difference to just get in your mind and body out of that mode to. Yeah you know what yes sleep. The seem like a good idea but this is also one the idea of writing down your warriors the idea of organizing your worries into something that you can then work through methodically and logically. This is also what you can take a little bit of a run-up i wouldn't be doing it. I'm not talking about making a list bed but if you are lying awake thinking about paperwork finances or feel as though everything's calls nita's organized than actually some time in the day to do filing to file things properly to get on top of your admin or just create an organized environment where you know where everything is that can have a really positive. Knock on effect of softening those concerns when you're trying to get to sleep so okay. I know this might make me sound a bit weird. But if you're a long-time listener you'll be no stranger to that. But i leave my office night but only a my office being my second bedroom but i leave my every night but only once. I've made sure everything is tidy. So i my desk so i've got my record. I'm obviously recording right now. So all my recording equipment out of my wires everywhere. I make sure that then nicely neatly wound up and put back in the drawer where they are recording device back ninety degree angle on my desk and when i leave at the end of the evening i use my call brush to like clete to rake through the copy or vacuum the carpet and anything i've taken out or use during the day. I put it back to how. I would have it if i had guests coming over the next morning and mentally. It ends my working day really neatly but the payoff is the next day. I am always and i mean always delighted to what to set foot back in my office. It feels like oh this is this is a place. We're going to do really good work today. And i know i said you know. Make it presentable as if someone else's coming around to see it but i'm seeing it and it's important that i have that feeling and that genuinely when i wake up in the morning at i think goku can you office today. I'm actually excited to get into the office. So that has definitely been one of the things that i have started to incorporate in the last couple of years that makes all the difference. The second tip is this one might sound really obvious. but it's dope nap and maybe it sounds really obvious for me. Because i've been working from home for eight years and so i've learned the hard way but if you're working from home for the first time or maybe the third time if you're in the uk and you're on your third lockdown but if you now have been working from home for substantial amount of time since we went into various stages if restriction around the world then. It's definitely tempting to have a quick snooze when you normally pep yourself up with a coffee or sneaky chat with a colleague in the canteen or out for quick walk. Whatever but while we're living and working in the same space it's easy for entity to drop and to think fifty minutes won't hurt and oversee no one's gonna see no one's gonna see you have a quick nap who cares but unless you're a great napa and that awesome effective ways to make napping efficient and actually work for you but let's revisit those in another time when another episode then give napping a real mess so like i said i've been working from home now for nearly eight years and nothing is a very very easy to fall into trust me. I've done it so so many times. But now i make myself go outside and walk around the block. The truth is that my body saying oh we need to sleep or or wouldn't wouldn't not be nice but the truth is the thing that's going to serve me better. Brain and body is a stretch. Probably some fresh air or just moving around. Because i've been sitting at my desk for hours on end my my heart rates will be slowed down. And that's why my body's like we haven't done much moving. Let's go to sleep now. Moving around for a bit. Even if it's just in another room even a bit of yoga will actually support a better night's sleep or more likely likely give you a burst of energy so if you get that i that three o'clock low what you think all honestly i could just kick off my shoes now and i could just go and put my feet up on the so. I just have a quick nap. No i find. If i walk around the block i come back and where i think. I was almost ready to finish my day. I've definitely got another few hours in me. And it's extraordinary. How many good ideas pop into your head when you out for a walk or you're in a downward dog come on. Who else has been there where you at your desk all day even working team. I've got. I've got to have an idea for this or i've gotta to do this. And you're trying to troubleshoot something and you at your desk in your in work mode. It looks like you're working really hard. You get up. Have a cup of tea or take a walk around the block pops into your head. That's me clicking. By the way the idea pops into your head a little bit of movement london he makes the body feel good but can sometimes just be the little bit of the release. The brain needs in the way. That when you're thinking of a word and you think really hard and then the second you start thinking about it pops into your mouth that kind of thing. The third thing make a nest and i mean literally obviously but just make your bed the most comfortable place you spend time so that it's an environment that lends itself to sleep and this is really important if your sleep begins to go out of out of wack. This isn't just about having nice bedsheets about the lighting in the room the temperature. I know it might sound nuts. Especially right now because we're in the depths of winter but i from my window for about five to ten minutes before i get into bed because i love the air in the room being being a little bit chilly. So that when i'm under the covers i can feel nice and cozy and i usually fall asleep listening to a podcast on a very very low volume and i use an. I'm ask so. I've got myself sort of prompt in with Coin she pillows but you know how many close your own thing. But i have myself mostly packed in with some pillows. I put an moscow on. And i have a pug 'cause playing and i spritz my bed liberally with some really nice leap spray so i used the one from a remarked if i use the one from this. I loved the one from the sanctuary. I always put the podcast on auto turn off. Say that it'll finish the end of the episode that i'm listening to on it's rare. It's really read by more than ten minutes of a show so that really works for me so that is just an. I sent in the bed opening the window for five to ten minutes. So it's nice and cool making sure that my bet is really comfortable that i've light blocked out and i've just got something quiet and gentle to listen to. That will help me get to sleep
Brexit talks continue
"Let's get started with. Brexit talks in brussels with jim sam. Jim was speaking on friday morning after a marathon summit session last night. I hope you've had a coffee. What if anything's happened so far on subjects of brexit summit and to be honest not a lot so the you leaders spent all night. He said up debating something quite different actually rather than discussing tariffs with the uk on fish. Quotas they were discussing coal mines and emission targets with poland's is wool sores objecting or has been objecting to some new environmental missions so dot swell emmanuel macron amoco and their colleagues spent all. Doing that was a very very brief point. On brexit's warning us live on july in the european commission. President debrief them on had dinner with boris. Johnson elliott is week. it was understandably very downbeat. She said she didn't want to put a percentage on it but at the moment it looks like there's a higher probability of a no deal outcome and the deal but the negotiations would continue to day in over the weekend and of you would be taken on sunday so that's where we are. No leaders intervened forty. 'cause it wasn't planned that they would but it was. Maybe they were to knock it to you to be on this by this point but it is telling actually how little brexit was summit nita. Angela merkel no emmanuel macron nor sponge prime minister pedro sanchez mentioned brexit. All when they arrived at summit yesterday when they listed all the topics that we're going to be discussed and sean michelle also made a point of saying that there will be no long discussion on brexit. And michelle is european council president. He's the one chairing the meeting. So brexit very deliberately pushed to the margins is not a good thing from boris. Johnson's puerto rico. The leaders didn't seem to discuss it much. I think it's a sign that at dinner. Didn't yield a breakthrough and it's a sign. The moment leaders all happening to continue living in the hands. The negotiators dating the eu is resigned to a no deal yet and i think the ease wed no deal would have serious consequences for both sides but also sense on the east side that the brits always obsessed with summits that was obsessed with getting beyond brussels in some way i think dream. Uk scenario is just hammering out directly with mr. macron. Mrs michael and i think the eu is basically denying the uk dots. The was saying we are not going to let this topic common and take over gender. We have other stuff to worry about
Indigenous documentarians tell their own stories of connecting to culture
"Documentaries can be powerful tools for storytelling but for indigenous people. This wasn't always the case for a long time. We were treated as subjects documentaries. Never telling our own stories but now things are shifting with more and more indigenous storyteller stepping behind the mic. Telling their stories how they want to and that is an incredibly powerful thing. Today on the show to documentaries about culture connection and finding your way back decades ago members of the michelle first nation northwest of edmonton took an unusual step and dissolved their band. They gave up their land and treaty rights to gain the same rights and freedoms as other canadians. The michelle first nation is believed to be the only band in canada to take the step one some descendants of the band. Call a huge mistake. The cbc's calling underwood brings us that story. And her own personal connection to it. Is this the truck used to drive back then. I gave a nineteen forty nine. I'm sitting in the passenger seat averni. Calloway who's big red pickup. Too bad. it wasn't a nicer day. I know it's cloudy out. The wipers are going and his daughter marine is in the back. Look at our home. What's left leftover earnings giving me a tour of his old reserve. It's called the michelle first nation. It was originally forty square miles in size just northwest of edmonton by al-khalij. Live here my uncle alec. Let's he's gone out to dozens of families used to live and farm here. Now it's mostly private farms and gravel pits. A good gesture astor disaster when the band dissolved in nineteen fifty eight the reserve was split up and every adult was given a section of land but just about everyone ended up selling. There's off ernie's the only one who still owns this piece and he still lives here. Yeah that's pretty special. Hey oh yeah that's especially. I don't think i'd ever move. I had offers a lot of people wanna biter land here. But i no no way i would tell after you know whatever whatever that word carries a lot of meaning. It represents anger and resentment that still lingers between some of the former members of the michelle bound some argue this reserve would still be here. if it weren't for the likes of one of her knees old neighbors johnny rotten You know it always bothers me. What happened with what can you do. Whatever ernie blames part of what happened on johnny. It seems he played a major role. And here's where i fit in. Johnny rogers was my grandfather. My grandfather died before i was born. I don't really know much about him. I've seen them in black and white photos and he doesn't really look indigenous. His mom was from the reserve but his dad. Wasn't i have my indian status through my grandparents and my mom. But i've never really connected to the culture partly because the reserve no longer existed by the time i was born and partly because my mom never talked about it. I wonder how my life would be if the reserve existed today. I wanna know. What role did my grandfather play in. Its disappearance my mom. Caroline hasn't been back here on the field. Her family once farmed for many many years was the house in there. Yes like our house was in that area and then there was this role of trees and us kids used to climb up and play them because they were so they were big. And you could hide up there. My mom and her eight brothers and sisters lived in a tiny white farmhouse with their parents. Johnny in clara and there was always a great big big trough on the outside of it. And that's where the cattle would come and drink and They had pigs and chickens and cows. They grew wheat. They also trump muskrats and rabbits and other wildlife. Light wasn't easy dad in my older brothers and sisters clear this basically my older sister. So that's why they're able to working. The land was tough. But that wasn't the toughest part it was being under the control of the federal government and the indian agent. This is what my mum's younger sister nita says. You know you couldn't even go on a holiday without getting permission to lead the reserve. I'm pretty sure you even had to get permission to sell its crane. He couldn't just take it to a place. Had to permission everything you did when you were on the reserve you had to get permission and i know that was one of the things that my dad did not like her dad. My grandfather also didn't like the way he was treated after serving in world war two. He signed up in nineteen forty three. He was one of a couple of men from the reserve. Who chose to fight.

Parents who want schools reopened risk putting themselves before their kids
"Sociologist and professor of education and public policy at U. C. Berkeley's Graduate School of Education. Hey, is an authorities written a couple books, standardized childhood and organizing locally. Speaking of books, Bruce, are you going? I know you're in the midst of your writing another book, but it's not on this top topic. Isn't this really something that someone should be writing a book on? Oh, for sure, It's Ah, It's a right area for Her research and lay foundations and others. You're trying to get some research up on going to really document In part, the inequalities that had built in the online instruction You know, before we talk to talk about that I do want to talk about the inequalities because I know you've done a lot of work on that and and you know, it's hard for me. I really identify why don't but I would like to identify with inner city kids who parents who have a really difficult time. I understand. I'm very fortunate in that regard, but others are less fortunate, and they have a lot of issues that they're facing. But talk a little bit about what you've done. Commented on in some of these pieces about the attention to child care, academic supervision for low income families and how the unhappiness and anxiety of parents will in fact, maybe Permanently. Hurt the development of kids. Well, I think is all parents know, Alan. Our kids are super sensitive to the stress and anxiety in the home. Especially younger kids say through fourth or fifth grade, but even adolescence or hyper sensitive to how they're parents you're doing you know whether In a one parent's divorce when parents with childcare arrangements cancels their job. Congress is deadlocked over unemployment protection. So in time of benefits, maybe running out in the next couple weeks on the problem is that the stress, of course, is most intense and working class. Household so Not only do we have kids that are trying to figure out what to do during the day and how detective teachers but we have terrorists under You know, suffering enormous anxiety and pressure. Some have to get to work to risk their own health. Some as we've seen in the papers, some get Corona virus come home sick. And then and then have to lose their jobs. And all those stressors buildup and that really set skins back emotionally and socially and They start to turn off start employing from online instruction. So I mean, this agreement is nice. It's it's better than the spring, but it doesn't provide child care for parents. It doesn't provide relief for parents who need to get back to their jobs. And it's a deeper structural problems facing blue calling parents especially They're really going to start to drag down kids on Dwyane achievement gaps and social developmental disparities. Yeah, I was going to ask you about that. But I mean, if this continues throughout the year How many kids are going to need to repeat this year? How many kids are goingto possibly need to repeat the year before? I mean, this is his going there. It seems like this is good. This might be a massive problem. A lot, And that's why I think we've got a experiment in small charters or small private schools carried to see how we get out of this hole because You know better off families. Khun can finance learning pods they can hire college students is tutors, but You called her parents trying to get back to the mechanic jobs or they're nursing assistant jobs. These air folks who don't have many options, and if their kids falsehoods and certainly behind, it's going to close off college opportunities are not able to graduate from high school. So I'm sympathetic with the unions who want to be super cautious about Teacher's going back to school. But the costs are going to be mounting for the families and kids, and we've got a way that I think more heavily than we have in recent months. And what about socialization? What can we do? In order to try and avoid some of the detrimental effects that we know occur when kids don't have for especially younger ones. You know, I know, For instance, my kids they really haven't had a whole lot of play dates of Fanny. They haven't been able to socialize. It's got to have an impact. What do we do? Oh, yeah. And I think that's what this learning pot idea. Alan is picking up speed. It's it's going to create inequalities, but you got to sympathize. With parents like yourself. Who's kids? They're just not They're not making any friendships. They're not working. You know, morning howto work out problems with their peers. They're not enjoying the joy of, you know, being in school out in the playground. And that lack of emotional support and Emotional wonder Munch. You know that that's so much part of childhood and that's goingto Nita mounting disparities as well. So I think we have to find ways of expanding our pods hanging out with our cousins, You know, figuring out who's been Most unhealthy for a number of weeks and then trying to engineer these get togethers for kids because All learning is built upon a strong emotional base. If that starts to crack its biggest section on kids running on the society as a whole
At least 14 people wounded in shooting at Chicago funeral home
"A horrific shootout outside of funeral home on Chicago's south side. Tuesday night wounded at least fourteen people according to police. This is the latest chapter of violence gripping the big city witness are Nita Girder said always always just bodies laying everywhere shot up everywhere all over legs stomach back all over the place. We thought it was a war out here. A vehicle was traveling on seventy ninth street when people inside opened fire on funeral attendees, the attendees exchanged gunfire with the vehicle which sped off before it crashed a short distance later, the people inside that vehicle ran. Ran Off police were interviewing one person of interest, they said the victims. All adults were taken to five separate hospitals. At least nine were listed in serious condition. The Chicago Fire Department told local media outlets. No other information about the victims was available
Mass Incarceration is Solvable
"The killing of George Floyd has brought calls for transforming policing into the national spotlight. The so many people taking to the streets demanding action now we have to maintain our confidence that even the hardest problems related to racial justice can be solved. How do you break this problem? Down into solvable pieces decide to stop prosecuting and charging low level crimes. Don't criminalize those behaviors. Justice isn't blind. We have to be far more critical and thoughtful and hats that lens out. Today, we're going to talk about how to solve mass incarceration. This is such a solvable problem. In show Rochman used to work as a public defender in the Bronx. That job illuminated for her. The variety of state national level problems with the criminal justice system. The US has five percent of the world's population, but currently holds twenty five percent of the world's incarcerated people. Rochman is a director of strategy new initiatives at the Vera Institute. An organization devoted to improving the criminal justice system in the United States. Rochman thinks those extremely disproportionate numbers represent a problem we can solve. In Gem so excited to talk to you today about this. Because mass incarceration is something I. Think a lot about and I know. A lot of our listeners are super interested in I. Wonder How you define the problem as something we can solve yet. We have two point three million people behind bars today that's seven hundred and fifty thousand people in jails, and another one point five million in prisons, and it's actually solvable, so. So! What's your plausible goal to get it down from two point three million, you said in jails and prison to what number if we just look at the average incarceration rate across the rest of the world, and if America word incarcerate at that rate, we would get down from two point three million to three, hundred, sixty thousand. That's something like doing the math head of factor seven yet. That's a remarkable number when you think about. And that's what we could and should and can actually do if we decide to do business differently from the beginning of the system to the end interest since George Floyd's killing, we've been in the midst of a national even international movement against police violence and for racial justice to change the opportunity around the incarceration. It does but only if we make enough of this moment and one thing that I wanNA point out. Is that for many of us? It feels like a moment of opportunity to make sure that the path we walked to get here with the criminal justice system that we have the path moving forward is the same, but we have to also stop acknowledge the moment of incredible pain and hurt and harm that has happened that it took the. Senseless and ruthless killing of a black man. Police officer with his NITA, his neck for the country to actually realize what actually happens with impunity each and every day in this country, and it's not just A. Crisis of now, but it's a crisis that's been here literally since slavery, So yes, there is opportunity, but we actually won't make enough of the opportunity if we don't recognize the long history and roots that got us to this place where we all feel like it's not only crisis, but a moment of hope but it really is a moment of crisis, and we have to lean into that first before we think about the opportunity in the moment.

Our pleasure to have him here. Thanks for being with us today. Lee Hello thank you for having me today From from right from right around the corner. It's weird I don't get to be in studio for this today. The everything's gone off shaken up. We're all apart from each other so I was like. Oh that I had one of those little emoji tears and I don't get to see you. I don't get to see your face. Oh well you know Lee so much is just changing Transitioning and there's lots to think about and I was thinking about this When the decision came to postpone it and thinking about this time of year and we've followed indigenous comecon since its beginning now. We were going to jump into in digit pop ex. And there's a lot that happens Lee Go ahead and just give folks who have never experienced it before What this is all about in in how? We went from indigenous COMECON to indigenous Pop X. So four years ago we started the indigenous COMECON in Albuquerque. As a way to bring together not only made of nerds. But to sh- I mean that's the most important part of our community but also to showcase to the world The the amazing things that native creatives have been doing Within within the pop culture realm so film and television science fiction fantasy a video games table talk games and of course comic books the big mainstay of what we did. And and we had You're one who was you know and we've always followed. The setup is panels and workshops We had a vendor hall of Native Comic Book Artist and regular artists and artists. The ball type and Just nerds you know wandering around We had films Film and television so we download a bunch of that cost play as well. Big Big component of that And and I think every year we've grown from that original That original in relation incarnation of the COMECON and kind of coming into this last year. We we imagined this continuation of bigger festival. And and we had a water resources and support to move into downtown Albuquerque and You know the whole thing for this year. As sort of the flagship of indicia pop bax was really to create this dynamic event where we had food at one venue. We had the comic con weekend at another. We had an indigenous future. `ISMs days At a third venue and then we were doing film and Television at a fourth venue and So we're really trying to create this really awesome like fun and Funky Downtown Festival with the sport of Kirke and and you know the the folks that were there and Yeah that was that was kind of how it's grown and it's been this wonderful food last year. We had wrestling like You know native wrestlers. Ww style wrestlers You know we had a fashion show so like all. This stuff was really the ideas. How are we showcasing the spaces where natives are not perceived in Popular Culture I mean we. We're always historic sized. So this idea of like there's amazing native chef that are creating these and television. There's you know native native folks doing film and Television. You know in various roles. There's natives writing at scifi digital future `ISMs so that's that's the evolution into we would. Was it that really to the point where you decided you know what we can't be doing this on our scheduled date we've been looking at it for. I mean the Ford. The governor made the announcement here in New Mexico and everything sort of fell apart. We had that sort of we had that sort of doomed hopefulness where it was like. Maybe it'll miss us. Maybe it won't happen in New Mexico if we can just make it to this weekend. We'll be fine but we already kind of seen the writing on the wall We had made some arrangements. A lot of this stuff has to do with just logistics around venues and postponing with venues. And making sure everybody's aware of everything so there was a lot of behind the scenes that was going on and a lot of scrambling and But but ultimately it came down to this decision We want to protect their community We have a lot of vendors and what a family members and we didn't want them to in any way have to carry the burden of you know trying to be at this event and then potentially going home To their elders and to their family members and you know may or may not. It's a question mark as they would be bringing as as we've turned it in our pop culture world Mr Nineteen Back Lick them So I think that's That was that was the ultimate decision and You know it's it's one of those ones very heartfelt for us We we don't take we don't take it. We didn't take canceling lightly. Because we know there's a lot of economics obviously circumstance changed immediately because everything's close But for us you know we were day one. We're we'RE NOT WE'RE OUT. We're GonNa try and figure something else out and We decided to go digital. So that's what we are this weekend in so it seems so appropriate to even just go this route Given you know what is being discussed in and just how innovative. The folks who make it to indigenous COMECON seemed to be with discussions as well as the mediums. They're working in. And so what is planned for this week? It's already started. As a matter of fact we we went live this morning Live streaming live. Live tape live right. I guess I don't know if there's a paradox the etc So we're streaming right now On our facebook page and You know we too. We got a bunch of our presenters To give us you know To tape in their living rooms to do their presentations for US online. And we cut it all and it's like three and a half hours of programming today and then we gotta make another three hours of programming tomorrow. Which was it was a little sample of everything we were going to do this weekend. And you know that's that's what we have in in mind starting today the run through tomorrow and Yeah it's it's I think it's a way that we continue to keep you know. Keep tending the fire and and also this trend. You know like when I was thinking about it was like transition was like now we're digital natives. Anyway we're we're we're futurists. That's that's how we exist and what a better way. What what better way to showcase native identity and natives in the future then doing something digital and we've seen a lot of the other convention to do this you know it's not like it's super unique to us but I think it continues to aligned with the you know the efforts energy the backbone of what we've been trying to do within digital x. Well now it's a it. X.'s did you pop X.'s digital feature stays so. It's a chance for folks to you know you're on facebook. Throw some is on it right like you know. That's what people do you know. Just their social media style and and you can And you get to join in and see really cool native folks doing really cool native things pige really
"Let's just to a reality check like I really think we're all kind of coming to terms with what's happening. We're going to talk about the latest and we're GonNa talk politics too but we did want to start this episode by Yeah. How're you each personally doing in this moment and I'll start with you a set up like a lot of Americans feel like they gotta take those reality. Yeah part of being on the trail. I've been pretty isolated and kind of build up to this and then Truly I think it was in the last like seventy two hours the real severity of it all as a function. But I'm doing. I feel probably all that stuff is going well and It just kind of throws up work things. It's hard to cover an election when there's no events happening there's withdrawal right. I mean Laura. Are you feeling a little bit of withdrawal as well? I would say that I don't particularly like working from home so realize that but I'm trying to find ways to stir crazy I ordered some weights. Nice it's difficult to process. Sometimes when I really stop and think about it. So who you you actually record this show from the basement of your home in the suburbs of Boston. Like you've been working from home for a long time. This is like yeah was. It's like you know how are you doing? We're doing good. I mean what else can you say I mean I have my kids home and that that makes a difference I mean I. I think it's the moments like this when you when as a journalist you realize your place as an informer and from Friday media to now it's cranked. I mean now it's things are shutting down so I'm ready. I mean I have my. I've had my virtual newsroom here for years. I'm used to it. I'm used to dealing with being alone in the house but now I have kids so I'm okay making a big deal. Big Puerto Rican friend. Neil tonight Also will turn into car. Nita's the next couple of days so trying to make the best of it. What about you you know? I remember when I was a correspondent at CNN and nine eleven happened and you know we were used to getting on a plane every week every other week. I was a correspondent and so I was flying all around the country all the time and then after nine eleven you know it was like you're not getting on a plane. You're not going anywhere. This story is right here. Yeah and it was actually really powerful for my family because we were together every single night. The Way I'm going to be with my two kids and husband at home every single night now here in New York City. I've thought a lot about you know the way I'm thinking of. This is self sacrifice like I know that because of my privilege. I'm informed I'm healthy. I will probably stay healthy. You know most people. Don't die from this but it is highly contagious and you can die from it. So I'm you know I'm taking a lot of responsibility but but there's a but do you start going into these scenarios that just get really kind of frightening what about people who are sex workers who work on the street. What about like? Who's going to protect them? What about undocumented immigrants? Are they just going to now? Just be scooped up even more like I start. No I don't because I feel myself back but are you guys going down that rabbit hole. I would say I've gone down a bit. I mean I'm again I'm not as worried about myself. You know I wrote out a long email to my family about my grandma who is eighty three years old my Nana and I I took it upon myself because I felt like what if they aren't paying attention to the warnings and I sent that email you know about five days ago now and I said you guys need to start staying away from her and only bring her groceries and don't go near her. If you're going to continue going out in public and I worry about other friends that I have that work more nine to five jobs and and could potentially go without paychecks if they get sent home so I've started to spiral a bit in thinking about that but then Remind myself that I'll be prepared to help. Who I can and I'm texting with my family. Probably more than I would in the past on a regular basis just checking in since they're across the country there in California. Yeah you know. And that's lake theories something that is going to happen. Four families and for professionals there is something that is going to happen to all of us and I'm again. I'm trying to be like an silver lining. Noy Mike you put me in November You know what are we gonNA learn from this and so yeah? There is that I'm going to stay in touch with the people who maybe I don't call them as often. I'm calling them every single day. Okay so let's get into the latest with Kovic. Nineteen on Sunday the Centers for Disease Control and prevention the CDC. They announced its recommendation to avoid mass gatherings of fifty or more people for the next eight weeks but then on Monday. President Trump announced in a press conference. That people shouldn't gathering groups of more than ten for the time being so that changed over the course of twenty four hours and the new guidelines. That came out also said that elderly people in the United States should stay home in addition more than a dozen states have announced school closures including New York City which is the country's largest school district so in New York City Los Angeles Seattle and in other places. You have bars restaurants gyms and retail businesses shutting down. Puerto Rico where I'm from has implemented a curfew but the biggest directive yet in the United States was announced on Monday for the city of San Francisco. People in San Francisco have been told to shelter at home and despite the Federal Reserve slashing interest rates to nearly zero trading came to a halt Monday morning because US stocks dropped below eight percent. So we know. The economic impact has already been devastating. And it's going to continue so the question is do they have enough tests too because a lot of what we're hearing is that people would like to get the test and they just can't because you're going to have to be very sick in order to get that test or from a vulnerable group. I mean exactly but there's also been all this reporting on how the wealthy and powerful are getting access to all these tests before everyday people I mean for example the Utah Jazz Professional Basketball Team. They managed to get test like immediately. One thing I read about this whole Utah Jazz testing and it was in the Atlantic at the time they took twenty percent of all the testing kits that were in Utah physically available in Utah. I think about that but still it's also important to note that in the United States. At least eighty nine people have died from the disease and globally. There are over a hundred eighty thousand cases and while nearly half of those cases the people have recovered. There's been more than seven thousand deaths. Sadly the numbers continue to rise daily. So it's almost like by the time this episode drops the more we're going to be impacted by this pandemic but the thing is we have examples from other countries that we can learn from so one example two weeks ago by remember. If you guys saw these images there were tourists. There were still out in Italy but this past Sunday. Three hundred sixty eight people died in one day but people here in the United States. I mean they were still going out this past weekend. Maybe it's because of the initial mixed messaging from our government but doctors and scientists have been stressing that we need to curb this spread by social distancing. We know that some people still have to go to work and they're exposing themselves like those in healthcare sanitation workers etc. My Mom who's a retired nurse in New York like she is getting extra work and I worry about that. I worry about my mom. But Laura why is it so hard for Americans to understand the importance of social distancing part of it is that makes messaging part of it? Is that from the top from the top officials in our country. You know starting with the president there's mixed messaging about what the younger population should be doing. And the president has consistently said young people. You're going to be fine
Introducing SUPERNATURAL WITH ASHLEY FLOWERS
"By the time police got the call about the bodies Invitation Hill. It was already starting to get dark. The Hill is surrounded by thick forest and brush so for everyone's safety. They decided to hold off until morning. Of course the press didn't take the same precautions when officers finally did arrive on the morning of August. Twenty first nineteen sixty six vin. Tame Hill was already swarming with reporters. The even snapped a few photos before the bodies were carried away unfortunately all the original sources are in Portuguese and more than fifty years later. It's hard to track them all down but some of them were summarized in English in the flying saucer review which despite the name was fairly credible journal in the sixties based on those articles. Here's what we know about. The police investigation. The only easy part of this case was identifying the victims thirty two year old men. Well Pereira de Cruz and thirty four year old. Miguel Giuseppe Viana. Both men were electronics. Technicians from the town called compost dose. Go to causes. Which is about one hundred and seventy five miles northeast of Rio de Janeiro. Both of them were happily married. Well respected in the community and led pretty normal. Unassuming lives according to their families. Miguel and Manuel had left town. On the morning of Wednesday August Seventeenth nineteen sixty six three days before their bodies were found. They said they were heading to Sao Paulo to buy some electronics equipment. Along with a used car. They've been looking at. They took some money with them somewhere. Between two and three million Cruzeiros the conversion rate is a little hard to calculate. But that's somewhere worth like a few thousand. Us dollars today at about nine am. Miguel and Manuel headed out to the bus station accompanied by a friend named L. CEO Gomez. Elsa wanted to go into the bus station. See them off but the other two men insisted that he just drop them off outside. Elsia didn't understand what the big deal was but he didn't think too much of it. He watched Miguel men walk into the bus depot and then he went back home. That was the last time he ever saw his two friends alive now. Even with the minimal evidence police had at this point. There were a few things about this story. That didn't add up. When the bodies were found the only had a combined one hundred sixty one thousand Cruzeiro on them. The rest of the two three million is unaccounted for still to this day. And of course they didn't go to Sao Paulo like they told everyone else. They went to a town called NITA. Roy which is a suburb of Rio de Janeiro. Which is a good couple hundred miles away. The investigators went back to Nita. Roy Hoping to find some answers there but once they piece together the rest of August seventeenth nineteen sixty six. All they had were more questions. Miguel and men wells bus would have arrived in Nita Roy at around two or two thirty that afternoon their first stop was an electronic store. They'd been to that store before so we can assume it carried some kind of equipment that wasn't sold in their own town but for some reason they left the store without buying anything and they didn't even talk to the sales clerk there now. Maybe the store was out of whatever they were looking for. But the taken a five hour bus ride to get there. Why on Earth wouldn't they at least check with the clerk? Before leaving either way after they lead the electronic store it starts to rain so they stop into a clothing store nearby and buy a pair of matching raincoats again. This doesn't raise any red flags on its own. But what is weird? The clerk said that they left in such a rush that they didn't even bother to put on the coats before running out into the rain. The coach that they just bought now. You might assume that the big appointment that they were rushing to was with the owner of that used car that they were looking to buy. But you'd be wrong. They didn't buy any car during the trip so if they weren't buying electronics and they weren't buying a car. What were they doing there? Oddly the next time may surface is at a bar in the same neighborhood as the clothing store and when they get to the bar. They're still very anxious about the time. Miguel goes to the counter and orders a bottle of mineral water according to the bartender. He's acting very like nervous and impatient and while he's ordering he keeps glancing over at the clock after paying for the water. Miguel keeps the receipt and this might not seem like a big clue but Brazil has a recycling policy where you could return empty bottles for a deposit. So whatever or whoever they're waiting for. Miguel assumes won't take too long and he'll have time to return the bottle before heading home that evening no one saw Miguel. Well leave the bar so we don't know if they met someone there or they left alone but at five PM. They're seen at the foot of ENTAME Hill. Which is just outside town. They pull up in a jeep driven by someone with blonde hair. There were two other men in the car as well but the witness couldn't see them clearly. Whoever these three men were they were the last people to see Miguel and well alive. So by this point police had mapped out all of their movements from leaving home in the morning to arriving at the hill that night but none of it offered any clues about what actually happened next. We already mentioned a few the strange details at the scene of the deaths. But if we take a closer look it's even more baffling. Let's start off with what they didn't have the money that they brought with them. The most obvious possibility is that this was a robbery gone wrong but staging a scene like this would have taken a lot of time and effort for not a ton of money and they also left some behind also. There were no injuries on either of the bodies. No CUTS NO BRUISES. No Burns no sign of violence at all. When the corner didn't autopsy there were no internal damages either and strangely. Despite sitting out in the open for three days on a hill that's swarming with wildlife. The bodies were totally untouched by animals. No one can really say what that means but it kind of seems like there was something unnatural about the death if even the vultures didn't WanNa touch them if this wasn't a murder the next possibility was suicide but this theory sort of falls apart too because Miguel still had the empty water bottle and the receipt. If he knew he was going to die. Why go through the trouble of saving that receipt beyond that police find three pages of handwritten notes? That definitely didn't suggest a suicide pact. The first page has a a list of electronics parts. Numbers along with some Algebra work. The equation uses Ohm's law which is E. equals. I are which is used to calculate the strength of an electrical current now. The two men were electronics technicians. After all so everyone assumes these are just notes for a work project now. The next page though is more of an enigma translated from Portuguese. It says quote Sunday one tablet after the meal. Monday one tablet in the morning on an empty stomach. Tuesday one tablet after the meal Wednesday one tablet before bedtime and quote. Obviously this is talking about some kind of prescription. But as far as anyone knows neither Miguel or amend well were sick now. The last dose that Wednesday before bedtime dose would have been taken right before they died but due to decomposition the corner couldn't get useful out of the toxicology report so we still don't know what was in those mysterious tablets and this was a little hard for me to understand because just a second ago I know. He said the bodies kind of untouched by wildlife. I expected them to be in. Good condition. But whatever's going on at the time they either didn't have the technology they didn't have the time and they weren't able to test for it so finally. The third page has another set of instructions. This one said quote sixteen thirty be at the determined location. Eighteen thirty swallow capsules after the effect protect metals week for mask signal end quote. Now the confusion isn't a translation issue. It doesn't make any sense in Portuguese either. It almost seems like the note was kind of scribbled down quickly in some kind of shorthand which probably means someone gave the instructions verbally and someone else wrote them down putting it all together. We can at least gathered that Miguel Aiman. Well weren't the victims of some kind of random attack. They came to the hill for a reason. And that brings us to our last piece of evidence. The lead masks themselves now. You're probably picturing a full mask. That covers your entire face. Almost like what welders wear but these were about the size and shape of sunglasses made out of solid lead. They were apparently homemade and cut. Roughly FROM SCRAP METAL. Lead blocks radiation. So it's often used as a coating protective goggles and facials but these masks were too small to offer any real protection and since they were solid metal. It'd be impossible to see or do anything while wearing them so at first police had no idea what to make of these masks but after some digging it turned out that this wasn't an isolated incident according to flying saucer review. There was another case four years earlier. Where another electronics technician had been found dead on a hill with a lead mask in that previous case the police determined that the man went up to the hill and took some kind of drugs because he was convinced it would allow him to pick up radio and TV signals with his
Live From The HIBT Summit - Stacy Madison of Stacy's Pita Chips
"Hey everyone so kind of a random question for you. What do you get when you take two? Psychologists one social worker and a few pounds of day-old pita bread. The answer of course is stacy's pita chips. One of the businesses we featured at our high built this summit last fault. Now if you remember a stacey story from the PODCAST. She was a social worker. Who teamed up with her brother David and her then husband. Mark both of whom were psychologists in other words. They knew nothing about the food industry when they built a multi-million dollar snack company and the whole thing began almost by accident. When Stacey and mark ran a sandwich card on the streets of Boston they would take leftover pizza. Cut It up and bake it into these crunchy little triangles. Which at first they gave away for free until it became clear that people were willing to pay for them anyway when Stacy and I sat down live onstage in San Francisco. I asked her what was going through her head at the time. Do you remember thinking? Even once you've kind of moved into making pita chips that this would grow into a massive rand no no no intention. Absolutely none never started. The company with an exit strategy. Didn't know what an exit strategy was. When we started didn't know what a business plan was. What do you think it was? Fueled the growth. I mean was it something that you were doing or do you think in some ways the growth found you because it was sort of a wave right that you started to ride bread and circus in Boston which now his whole foods and there was more interesting sort of simpler. Wholesome natural foods started as a wave and then it. Kinda went to a hockey stick. Yeah so we learned the value of being able to control your growth which is a skill in itself you know because we were doing our own manufacturing and with the growth we got into gourmet food stores and people were paying about six dollars a bag. Has Anybody here have had the pita chips? Antibody has feta chips. Well you know what I used to. I used to ask that when I would go speak somewhere. There'd be like five hands in the audience and I'd start explaining. We'll a pita chip. We take some bread and we season it. We cut it anyway. Glad I don't have to go back that far anymore. But we started in gourmet food stores from there. We were in natural food stores and we always had pure ingredients. We didn't you know the whole natural food boom and we were just automatically natural. I mean there was nothing in it. There were like three or four ingredients so we didn't actually have to do anything when all these other companies were trying to make themselves natural mood like. Hey we already are. There was a point pretty early on because at the beginning mark was cutting the pita chips by hand. Told you had a really big right BICEP. Rice yeah and eventually to just kind of grow. It wasn't like you went out to a bunch of private equity companies. Raise money righty. We were just kind of funding. The business through sale of pita chips through the sale of pita chips and running up our credit cards. Beg Steal Borrow Driving Crappy car or whatever it is. You had to habit. How did you do that? I was talking to some attendees earlier. Same story how do I grow this thing? I don't. I'm also worried that you know? When I put my product out in the world a bigger company will see it and just replicate it in crush me. That could have happened so easily. Pita chips are pretty easy to replicate. You can't patent them right. You can't patent them and they're not that easy. Sorry I'm sorry you can imagine that a delay or when he's like a huge company could figure out you know some kind of competitive product right. How and you didn't have a whole lot of money. So how are you doing that? How how are you investing in? How did you even have a place to make them? Was the rent cheap. I think you were like Lynn Massachusetts or something like that and Randolph. Mass factor is still there but initially we started off borrowing some space from a woman who made pretzels and it was when we started having to install some of our own equipment that we had to then find a bigger space so we found a space in a construction type building super nice landlords and he sectioned off five thousand square feet and then we were growing bigger and he's and he was on the other side and he's like why can just move the ball over and he moved the wallover. We took ten thousand square feet and then he's like well. I can just move out. And then we took twenty thousand square feet and then when we started grow even further. That's when we looked literally one driveway over. Was this mattress factory for sale. And you took alone a bank loan for that yes. We had a bank loan for that and I said well can I get half a million because we have to and they initially said no no not that would equity and then. I went out and got accounts and got letters from airlines. And things like that and you're going to base Yes yeah if you can make them Mike Lee. Write that down and that's how you were able to secure the loan. Yes I mean did you. I mean now. Of course you know. The the lure is to go out and seek capital and to raise money and at that time. Was that even something you would mark considered doing we did. We considered raising capital. It takes a lot of time and effort and I don't have a business background. None of us did you. Were social workers or psychologists anytime. I have to do math. I go to my sister. 'cause she's got an MBA. And I'm like you know so. We were just about to take on financing. Which is when we landed the trader. Joe's account and so we started doing higher volume and such a Nice Company. They would pay before they even got the product and it was unusual. Yeah they pay really quickly and so I ended up all of a sudden we were getting money and we were kind of us and the ships were really selling so we used the money that we got in from trader. Joe's to really fund. The business and help us grow so we never ended up taking on any extra outside money which was a very fortunate decision. Remember the podcast. He says something to me that really resonated you said by the thousands you had your your daughters and you said the business really started to run you. I have talked to so many people who've been on the show that say. If you think you're going to run this business understand. The business is GONNA run. I think Angie Dan Bastion of Boom Shaka. Pop also said version of that. What was that? What was that period? I mean that was when you started to think about. Maybe I don't WanNa do this anymore. Yeah I think at the time I still would have done it but I think mark was like there was all these things that he didn't get to do that he wanted to do. He wanted to go off and you wanted to travel and he wanted to do all these things and yet we're still growing really quickly. And we had been approached by five of the largest food conglomerates that there are in the world asking us to sell and it was a lot it. Was You know I'm breastfeeding in the closet? And it was an so the business really started to dictate our lives versus us doing what we love to do and making a living at it and so that's when we decided well I think maybe we should think about selling. I'm really interested in this idea of passion. Right toll ruffin often. We often hear. Follow your passion which is not actually possible for for many people. Follow your passion. You're passionate may not be able to afford new. Sustainable life were pita chips. Was that a passion. I mean we're you and mark really following that passionate or did it become a passion once you started to really it. It wasn't a pita chips per se. It was just like we were in the food business where we both wanted to be. But I feel like it becomes more of a passion when other people start to believe in you when it transitions from this crazy idea and you guys have graduate degrees and you've got loans and when all of a sudden when it starts selling and other people start believing in you and then you start to develop your team and other people start like wanting to work for you and quitting their jobs and then you're responsible for them making a living and that then it's really becomes a you know. Yeah Ashley I'm interested in. You have a new company that you started. You obviously sold stacy's. You're not involved with the company formerly anymore. You you've got. The new company called be bold energy bars. You've got a juice Bar Nita Massachusetts near to where you live. This is a startup all over. Obviously the stakes are different because you are financially secure. It's not a maker break but of course you want it to work and you want it to be successful. Do you have some of that? Same kind of anxiety and energy you did when you were starting stacy's now with be bold is is there some overlap in that feeling yes. I'm at my juice bar and I'm selling all of these bars. You know the handmade in the back with the mixer once again. It's I didn't start anything big. We got a mixture going in the back and mix press and package and I have to say. It's no less nerve wracking. Starting another company especially now like now people expect something from the pressures on. Yeah the pressure is on and when we reached out to some of the people that worked with us at the PITA chip company and said. Do you want to become a part of the team and we started to get people now our COO. She was with quaker and with Jim Beam and now she called her up and we said well. We're starting this company and to think about it. Take a week. She talked to your husband. Two days later she called us back and she said. I'm in well and when she I mean like that's a real like I keep thinking of real job and she's quitting her real job to come with us and you know and do this nervous about it and not only that. But it's like hey you know what it gave us this other sense this additional sense of confidence and belief that we can do this. We can do this again. And even when my brother came on board? And he's just sitting in the juice bar watching these people buying these bars and buying these bars. He's my number one believer so be bold helbig want do you want it to be. You wanted to be doing what I love to do now again so again. There is no exit strategy. We just want to have a a refrigerated bar. And I almost feel felt remiss just selling it in my local juice bar and having so many people love it and then not putting it out on the market. Because everybody's going to love it. They are called be bold bars. This is Stacey Madison. She is the founder of Stacy's pita chips. Thank you so much for being here. Appreciate it so much. It's been great having
Solving the Lead Masks of Vintem Hill
"By the time police got the call about the bodies on Vin Tame Hill. It was already starting to get dark. The Hill is surrounded by thick forest and brush so for everyone's safety. They decided to hold off until morning. Of course the press didn't take the same precautions when officers finally did arrive on the morning of August. Twenty first nineteen sixty six vin. Tame Hill was already swarming with reporters. The even snapped a few photos before the bodies were carried away unfortunately all the original sources are in Portuguese and more than fifty years later. It's hard to track them all down but some of them were summarized in English in the flying saucer review which despite the name was fairly credible journal in the sixties based on those articles. Here's what we know about. The police investigation. The only easy part of this case was identifying the victims thirty two year. Old Manuel Pereira de Cruz and thirty. Four year old. Miguel Giuseppe Viana. Both men were electronics technicians from the town called compost dose. Goto causes which is about one hundred and seventy five miles northeast of Rio de Janeiro. Both of them were happily married. Well respected in the community and led pretty normal. Unassuming lives according to their families. Miguel Manuel had left town. On the morning of Wednesday August Seventeenth nineteen sixty six three days before their bodies were found. They said they were heading to Sao Paulo to buy some electronics equipment. Along with a used car. They've been looking at. They took some money with them somewhere. Between two and three million Cruzeiros the conversion rate is a little hard to calculate. But that's somewhere worth like a few thousand. Us dollars today at about nine. Am Gal and Manuel headed out to the bus station accompanied by a friend named L. CEO Gomez. Elsia wanted to go into the bus station. See them off but the other two men insisted that he just dropped them off outside. Elsia didn't understand what the big deal was but he didn't think too much of it. He watched Miguel Amon. Well walk into the bus depot. And then he went back home. That was the last time he ever saw his two friends alive now. Even with the minimal evidence police had at this point. There were a few things about this story. That didn't add up. When the bodies were found the only had a combined one hundred sixty one thousand Cruzeiro on them. The rest of the two to three million is unaccounted for still to this day. And of course they didn't go to Sao Paulo like they told everyone else. They went to a town called neater. Roy which is a suburb of Rio de Janeiro. Which is a good couple hundred miles away. The investigators went back to need a Roy hoping to find some answers there but once they piece together the rest of August seventeenth nineteen sixty six. All they had were more questions. Miguel men wells. Bus would have arrived in Nita Roy at around two or two thirty that afternoon their first stop was an electronic store. They've been to that store before so we can assume it carried some kind of equipment that wasn't sold in their own town but for some reason bay left the store without buying anything and they didn't even talk to the sales clerk there now. Maybe the store was out of whatever they were looking for. But the taken a five hour bus ride to get there. Why on earth wind they at least check with the clerk before leaving either way after they lead the electronic store it starts to rain so they stop into a clothing store in nearby and buy a pair of matching raincoats again. This doesn't raise any red flags on its own. But what is weird? The clerk said that they left in such a rush that they didn't even bother to put on the coats before running out into the rain. The coach that they just bought now. You might assume that the big appointment that they were rushing to was with the owner of that used car that they were looking to buy. But you'd be wrong. They didn't buy any car during the trip so if they weren't buying electronics and they weren't buying a car. What were they doing there? Oddly the next time they surface is at a bar in the same neighborhood as the clothing store and when they get to the bar. They're still very anxious about the time. Miguel goes to the counter and orders a bottle of mineral water according to the bartender. He's acting just very nervous and impatient and while he's ordering he keeps glancing over at the clock after paying for the water. Miguel keeps the receipt and this might not seem like a big clue but Brazil has a recycling policy where you could return empty bottles for a deposit. So whatever or whoever they're waiting for. Miguel assumes it won't take too long and he'll have time to return the bottle before heading home that evening. No one saw ag- elleman well leave the bar so we don't know if they met someone there or they left alone but at five pm they're seen at the foot of entame hill which is just outside town. They pull up in a jeep driven by someone with blonde hair. There were two other men in the car is well. The witness couldn't see them clearly. Whoever these three men were they were the last people to see Miguel and well alive. So by this point police had mapped out all of their movements from leaving home in the morning to arriving at the hill that night but none of it offered any clues about what actually happened next. We already mentioned a few strange details at the scene of the deaths but if we take a closer look it's even more baffling. Let's start off with what they didn't have the money that they brought with them. The most obvious possibility is that this was a robbery gone wrong but staging a scene like this would have taken a lot of time and effort for not a ton of money and they also left some behind also. There were no injuries on either of the bodies. No CUTS NO BRUISES. No Burns no sign of violence at all. When the coroner didn't autopsy there were no internal damages either and strangely. Despite sitting out in the open for three days on a hill that's swarming with wildlife. The bodies were totally untouched by animals. No one can really say what that means but it kind seems like there was something unnatural about the deaths if even the vultures didn't WanNa touch them if this wasn't a murder the next possibility was suicide but this theory sort of falls apart too because Miguel still had the empty water bottle and the receipt. If he knew he was going to die. Why go through the trouble of saving the receipt beyond that police find three pages of handwritten notes? That definitely didn't suggest a suicide pact. The first page has a list of electronics parts numbers. Along with some Algebra work the equation uses Ohm's law which is E. equals. I are which is used to calculate the strength of an electrical current now. The two men were electronics technicians. After all so everyone assumes these are just notes for a work project now. The next page though is more of an enigma translated from Portuguese. It says quote Sunday one tablet after the meal. Monday one tablet in the morning on an empty stomach. Tuesday one tablet after the meal Wednesday one tablet before bedtime and quote. Obviously this is talking about some kind of prescription. But as far as anyone knows neither Miguel or amend well were sick now. The last dose that Wednesday before bedtime dose would have been taken right before they died but due to decomposition the corner couldn't get anything useful out of the toxicology report so we still don't know what was in those mysterious tablets and this was a little hard for me to understand because just a second ago. I know he said the bodies were kind of untouched by wildlife. I expected them to be in. Good condition but whatever's going at the time they just either didn't have the technology didn't have the time and they weren't able to test for it so finally. The third page has another set of instructions. This one said quote sixteen thirty be at the determined location. Eighteen thirty swallow capsules after the effect protect metals. Wait for mask signal end quote. Now the confusion isn't a translation issue. It doesn't make any sense in Portuguese either. It almost seems like the note was kind of scribbled down quickly in some kind of shorthand which probably means someone gave instructions verbally and someone else wrote them down putting it all together. We can at least gather that. Miguel men well. Weren't the victims of some kind of random attack. They came to the hill for a reason. And that brings us to our last piece of evidence. The lead masks themselves now. You're probably picturing a full mass at like cover entire face almost like what welders wear but these were about the size and shape of sunglasses made out of solid lead. They were apparently homemade and cut. Roughly FROM SCRAP METAL. Lead blocks radiation. So it's often used as a coating protective goggles and facials but these masks were too small to offer any real protection and since they were solid metal. It'd be impossible to see or do anything while wearing them so at first police had no idea what to make these masks. But after some digging it turned out that this wasn't an isolated incident according to flying saucer review. There was another case four years earlier where another electronics technician had been found dead on a hill with a lead mask in that previous case the police determined that the man went up to the hill and took some kind of drugs because he was convinced it would allow him to pick up radio and TV signals with his mind now. One delusional technician we can accept but three is a different story. There was something bigger going on here and no one knew how many lives would be taken before this was

She had bangs and was part of like in the middle N straight down to the shoulders. She was wearing a twenty four year old woman's haircut. And pale as casper the ghost.

She was somebody who apparently knew any hill from all these days gone by and she was up there testifying to the the character in the decency, and the honorability and all that of Nita hill and her speech pattern.

There's no thing you missed out on a certain breakpoint or something. It's a straight line calculation. It has to be by law. So you know, it's not like it's up for grabs on what's going on here.

But I take it that your line has no Carolina counterattack. Well, let me is not the night that he has engaged in marital infidelity tonight. It's pursue. He had problems in his that's right. And he talked about the draft and to some people. It's a character problem. Bill Clinton's past his character. Tests wreck his life throughout this campaign. And he's showing it through its commitments to real fights. And what he's going to do in this campaign is focused on what's important to the American people on the jobs and the education.
