no. 55 - The Dexafit Episode

"If your skin doesn't know whether to break out a wrinkle, if you're caught between planning the third grade class party and researching retirement plans, or if you want to work out at the idea of cross bit makes your forty something needs you've come to the right place. Welcome to this unrelenting alive. I'm your Reagan Jones and welcome to today's show for those of you that follow me on Instagram. You may recall that before the Christmas holidays, I made a quick trip over to Atlanta from my home in Gusta to go have some testing done specifically, I was having a decks scandal on resting metabolic rate and a three D assessment now and only briefly shared some of this information on Instagram, and so many of you message me is that I want to know more. So the background is I happen to be right before Christmas scrolling through Instagram myself. And I saw that my good friend and colleague who you may remember from the orange theory episode Ainun the laser hair removal episode, Katie wick had been to a Dexsa fit location in Tampa Florida now I was familiar with Dexsa scans as testing and you'll hear me talk about that here in this episode. But I was immediately intrigued to find out what? What was the exit Offit location? Is this a chain was at something that I could find locally because truthfully for years, I have been wanting to have a Dexsa scandal on to do an assessment of my body composition. So I looked through katie's information on Instagram stories. I messaged her. I did what I always do when I'm interested in a new topic and Mcgann to Google it and found that there was a new decks fit location in the Atlanta area. I contacted that location to set up a testing date and went over as my Christmas present to myself to have some testing done my intention truly was to buy this for myself for Christmas present I'm that big of a data nerd that. I wanted to do this type of testing as a gift to myself when I arrived and met Maureen who you are also going to meet here in this episode and shared with her that I was doing this testing. And would be talking about it on my podcast. She was kind enough to elect. Me do the testing for free. So I want to make that. Disclaimer. This is not a sponsor episode by Dexsa fit by any stretch of the imagination. I always had this intention to do this episode, but I did want you to know that she did allow me to do that testing for free. And I am so appreciative. I hope that as I'm able to go back Maureen will let me pay her for these services because I fully intend to go back and do assessments over time to see how all things that. I'm doing with my nutrition, and my fitness are helping to change my body, composition and most importantly to get an assessment of longevity. So I've given you all the background on me and my reasons behind doing this. Now, I want to give you a very quick background on marine, and then jump into my interview, my guest today is Maureen O'Meara who is actually a thirty year veteran of federal law enforcement. But she is now the owner of Dexsa fit in Atlanta, Maureen describes herself as having a life long love of fitness. And wellness and through her own personal health journey which like my own she discovered Dexsa fit. So today, she's helping others achieve their best health through the testing services that decks fit offers. And that's what we're going to talk about in this episode. And with that, I would say Maureen welcome to the show. Thanks reagan. I have shared with listeners that I kind of stumbled upon you, and I'm so glad that I did I felt like we clicked from the moment that I walked in the door. And I love all the testing that I had done at your location. I shared a about it on Instagram and people were like we want to know more. So that's why I'm producing this podcast today. So the first thing that I want you to do is just give the big umbrella of what is when they hear that the term decks of fit. What is dex Offit Dexsa fit is a company that since two thousand eleven has opened to conduct science backed digital? Fitness and wellness testing. So what that means is we do body composition testing and metabolic testing using hospital and research grade testing methods, and I can get into that a little bit more. If you want I well, I want to draw a listers attention to this fact, because if you don't really work in this world or haven't been in this world, you might not realize this. But what Maureen and other decks Offit locations like hers are offering now is something that kosh Maureen. I'm gonna say five, you know, definitely twenty years ago when I was coming through graduate school, and maybe even as late as five years ago this testing that was really hard to come by you had to know someone at either a hospital or primarily a hospital slash research university center to get some of this testing done. So the fact that you now as a consumer. Can go and get this level of hospital grade testing done. I think is purely amazing exactly this is this is the kind of testing that is done in academia, exercise physiology. Exercise science any type of a research organization that's doing doing work on research on body composition or cardiovascular health metabolic health. They're using these tools. So we're bringing research grade medical grade tools into the mainstream and making it accessible to everyone which is exciting, especially when you're someone like me who you like to go deep into the information even on yourself. So now, let's uncover for people. Let's not I about all the different types of testing that you offer I have three in particular that I want to dive deep in. But just give us a broad overview of everything that you offer there at decks fit. In Atlanta, will we do the the bread and butter here is the body composition testing using a Dexsa scanner that is that is one of the primary test. We do we do to other primary tests related to metabolic testing so resting metabolic rate and the vio two max testing. So those are the three primary tests. I do I've got some of a fit three body scanner takes external measurements of your body. And then we do some we have some take home test kits for blood testing for for various biomarkers microbiome DNA testing that sort of thing, but our primary tests are the metabolic testing in the body composition. Very cool. And those are the three that I wanted to talk about now, I when I came over to see you intended to get the decks the scan and the resting metabolic rate. I did not intend to do the O to max. And I did not do. That. But you did give me the opportunity to fit three d which was pretty darn cool to be able to see that. And see your measurements done from total body level of anybody's ever had to do their own body measurements. Where you take the tape measure, and you put it around your ways, you put your fine all that this is standing room and hold onto some handles and twirl twirled you're around a little bit. And it gives you this great three D imaging which I really enjoyed. But what I wanna do is now go one by one through the body composition analysis. You know, Dexsa scan the RA mar and the video to MAC. So let's start with dex scan. Tell us about that about that test. You know, kind of what it is what it's looking at. And then if people are going to have it done like what they're going to expect when they get there. A love the ducks a scanner. So I'm gonna I'm gonna talk that one up. This is the gold standard. And I know people say that a lot about a lot of different things. But this deck. Scanner is an amazing device for determining total body composition. So when I'm when I'm talking about that I'm talking about your your total body fat, your visceral body, fat, your lean tissue your bone and your bone density in this machine will tell you the the location and the percentage of that throughout your body. It it breaks it down into a arms legs trunk Andrew and a guy Noida region, and it's very accurate in very detailed. It's a great way to if you haven't had one done before to get a baseline to see where you are to track your progress throughout you know, whatever whatever you're doing in terms of nutrition or fitness and to see you know, to to see where you end up. It's it's just incredibly an incredibly accurate tool that. I I can't say enough about. Yeah. I think the thing with Dexter scan. You know, people the people here about body fat scales, or whatever, and those are typically bio electrical impudence in most experts are all experts that I've ever talked to have said, you know, what they're just highly. Inaccurate. But the decks scam like Maureen said is extremely accurate and what I really enjoyed about. It was one not only being able to get a baseline to see if things that I do over the coming year, you know, change any of my body composition. But it's not about just getting one body fat number. It's about looking at. Okay. Where are you storing most of your fat, you know, some of that I kind of know I mean, I tend I mean, if you meet me, you'll know like, okay? Well, she store in a little more fat or under hips. And that's not that atypical for I know, many many women, but this will break it down for you as Maureen said and tell you, okay. This is what the left leg is doing the right leg is doing. This is what's happening around your midsection, your internal organs. And we know that you know, that is the more unhealthy fat. If you will the the fact that sitting there right there in our midsection. So when a scale or just any type of measurement gives you one number. It's really not breaking it down into areas, and helping you look at that this breaks it all down. And it also does what it was regionally tint intended to do and Maureen mentioned that, but I want to draw your attention to this lady's. It gives you your bone density measurement, which the first decks Scana ever had done was in an osteoporosis clinic when I was in graduate school. They afforded me the opportunity to do that because they did that for all their patients. So I was pleased. When I visited with Maureen to find out that I actually have the bone density of thirty ish year old woman, which is really good to kind of find out those things. So that's really. Portent and Maureen now walk through for people. What it looks like when you actually physically come in to get the scan you talk through like what they're doing Edessa scanner is a very low level x Ray machine. So I've got a table that I put you on in an arm passes over you a scanning arm passes over you. It takes about from head to toe depending on how tall you are in the how much you weigh it it it takes about five six minutes roughly. So it's really simple. It's really straightforward and were done in less time than it takes me to do the paperwork and very noninvasive of test in some people have asked if it's like to like, a Bod pod or or an MRI. It's not like that. They're so it's it's it's not enclosed at all. It's just an arm that passes over you. And it's very noninvasive. So it's really. Easy. It's it's basically like laying down on a table, and, you know, something passing over there's no confinement at all. And remind me Maureen because I did have some precession requirements, but I don't think this one had any precession requirements is that correct? That's correct. Right. When as with anything x Ray related we wanna keep the metal to a minimum, right? So comfortable clothes is few as possible. Ins- us you feel comfortable in. But no, there's no pre-test protocol requirements for this. So there's no no fasting Noval. Level. No caffeine for collusion's. Nothing like that. There's a little paperwork to fill out ahead of time. And then I usually go over the results why I go over the results right away. Once once we're done. Now wanna move to the second one which is in a little bit of direct contrast from the decks scan and that is the RAM are the resting metabolic rate testing. Because while it is not difficult to do. It is a little bit more. There's some subtle nuance to the comfort level of it and Maureen you'll do a great job of explaining this because I actually came in a little bit unaware of how this worked, and you were really good to say, okay. Now, we've we've gotta get used to this got to be prepared for this. Because this is a little bit different. It's not the same as laying on a table and having a wind move over you, and it has some prerequisites. So talk about the arm are testing resting metabolic rate testing gives us your metabolic rate at. At rest. It's. An incredibly accurate way to determine what your caloric needs are used specifically throughout the day at rest a lot of times, we get these numbers from the internet, and they could be the basal metabolic rate, which is your metabolic rate at while you're sleeping or you're resting metabolic rate based on a predicted value for your age, you wait your gender all of that. This does it accurately and the way we do that is through a method called indirect Keller Matry or you're wearing a mask. We put we put a mask on you. And and it I connected to a a metabolic cart which measures your carbon dioxide output in your oxygen input and using that ratio weaken glean a tremendous amount of information about what your body is currently using as its primary fuel. Source whether that's fat or carbohydrates and your metabolic needs for one day at rest. That's why we need to to get people rested. I put you in a chair give you a blanket because it does get cold. But this mask on you connect you to the machine and the new sit for about fifteen minutes now to get you into that rested state, we need to we need to observe some some pre-test protocols. So no, no eating no, drinking at least five hours prior to. I really recommend even more than that. So what I try to do is to get people to take this test. First thing in the morning, so wake up come to see me. I've been convinced to come pretty early in the morning because people want to have their caffeine made it hanger me. So so we try to get those tests done as early as I can. And I I can see from the computer screen. I can see whether you're truly rested or or not in. So once we get done with that we have a really good baseline for your resting metabolic rate that test was very insightful. I don't think that Maureen really emphasized one point that I thought was pretty neat it she she mentioned that it kinda says like what are you using as a metabolic fuel as a fuel at the moment. So it was able to share, you know, for me that I was at that point burning sixty percent carbohydrate in forty percent fat, which I I think they classify, and I have been told means that I'm metabolic flexible, and that's something good. That's something to train towards getting yourself to be more metabolic leave flexible. So that you can burn carbohydrate and burn fat and are not an are not storing as much so I felt that was really interesting. And then the other thing that was super interesting was for me, I always tend to in my mind. And think I am a low metabolic rate person. I've just over the years if you guys have listened to my macro counting episode, you probably realize that probably carry around a little psychological baggage. That says, hey, I I just don't burn as much as everybody else. But when I did this testing with Maureen it said, actually, I'm at a metabolic rate a little bit higher than what was predicted four my current age. So that's really important to know. Because when you are looking at these calculators online, they're really basing it off of your your age and just some predicted tables based on that. And this is just a much much more accurate picture. Now, the one that I did not do. I actually in telling a fitness dietitian friend about what I had done. He said, oh, you should have the two max, why did you not get the b two max I didn't have that done Maureen. I'm gonna tell you right now. I've got to come back. I know I'm going to come back for the for a scan RAM are down the line to look at. Baseline and make a comparison. But I gotta come back for the vio to max because I've heard like that is one that I need to have done so walk through for people. What that looks like so via to max is a great test for cardiovascular health, and I think most people have seen this either, you know, on TV or online people wearing masks on a treadmill running or on a bicycle pedaling, really hard. And what this does is it measures the the amount of oxygen? You can take in for kilogram body weight over time. So what we're looking for are is a number that number, and it'll it'll give us a really good idea of your cardiovascular health, and we've got a we've actually got a scale on the wall that ranks you. But this is typically done in sports labs. Professional sports teams do this on a regular basis to increase that vio to max because the higher that can go the obviously, the the the higher you can perform and for people who aren't professional athletes. It's a tremendous predictor of mortality and longevity. There are a number of studies out there that link via to max to basically how long you're gonna live just today. I was reading another report that talks about the. Association between certain forms of cancer and obesity. So when we talk about looking at your body composition. Yes. Some of it may be aesthetics. But some of it is about understanding. Okay. Where am I where am I at right now in terms of my body composition? How overweight or obese am? I and most importantly, the interventions that I'm taking the things that I'm doing in the gym or whatever physical fitness that you're doing or the dietary interventions are you making a positive change. And this is the gold standard for being able to say, yes, or no, we're headed in the right direction. And that's one of the reasons that I'm so glad that I found Maureen and the decks Offit location there in Atlanta. Now, Maureen one thing that I do want to give you just a quick opportunity to share with people is the reports that they get so tell people like once they come in. And they get the different testing done. What do you hand over to them? We end over a pretty comprehensive package depending on obviously on the test that you got for the. The the decks scanner I will I have a a report that shows you your total body fat your bone in pounds and lean tissue, and and and and your visceral fat too, by the way, and the distribution of those things. Now, the visceral fat is always in the same place. But that is one of the that is one of the key things that I point out in that in that exam. So will will look through the whole report look at lean tissue in its distribution in any a symmetry that may lead to injury or cause injury, and he bone density, your bone density numbers like like you talked about and in that visceral fat, which is really important to take a look at. So you get a really detailed report. And if I'm seeing someone for a second time that report will show trends, we'll see any. Any any drops in in any of the body fat or or the changes in the distribution of it? So it pretty comprehensive reports. That's pretty neat. You walk away. With a lot of information to digest and to have at baseline. Yes. A lot of information and more when you come back for for with any trends, we'll see any trends. Same for the resting metabolic rate in the video to now the resting metabolic rate will provide you with your the the actual calculated metabolic rate that that we came up with. And then it gives some end the rest, I change ratios. We talked about with the car versus fat-burning numbers will show you that percentage, and the we'll we'll give you some ideas for. Adding calories in because this is a resting metabolic rate. Right. So this is not what most people do throughout the day. They're doing activities. So we have a table that adds calories back in again, it's a framework for for people to take in and tinker with a little bit. But it gives you an idea based on your activity level what you can expect to add back into your diet. Now, Maureen I want to make sure that people understand how they can find you. But before we do is there anything that. We haven't covered that you think people need to know either about the testing or the services that you offer one thing that I that I do want to mention that just came out. And and actually I'm not sure that it was available when you came in Reagan. So this is this is good for you to know to decks Offit has created an app. It's just I o s right now. So it's just apple, but it should be. We should have the droid version. Up in the next few months. So if if you download that app, all of this information will be uploaded to your account. So you create an account using the same Email address us with me, and it come it gets uploaded into your count, and that information will be consolidated. You will be given away on jetty score. There will be pulling in some resources into this app for nutrition, and fitness and all kinds of other resources that that you may want to tap into. So it's a it's a neat. It's Anita app. And it's growing, you know, I will be downloading it just as soon as we finish this episode because I love having that kind of information right there at my fingertips, but Mari now I want you to make sure that people understand how they can find you in the Atlanta area. People probably have picked up on. I don't live in Atlanta. But this was such a unique opportunity when I learned that. If it even existed over in Atlanta that I said, hey, I am willing to drive over there and get this testing dying. So you don't have to live in Atlanta to get this done. You can just make the drive over to see Maureen, but she's going to tell you exactly where she's located. And then just give a brief mention that there are other locations throughout the country. So Maureen let people know how they can find you. I am actually just outside of Atlanta and she emblem at five five five three Peachtree road in Chamblee. And a if you go to the decks Offit website, you can find me in all of the other of it. So it's WWW dot decks Offit dot com. And if you click up in it's in the upper right hand corner. Find a location I think we're at about twenty two or twenty three decks fits and more opening all the time. So in the southeast alone. We've got a couple in Florida one in Alabama. And and and of course, Mehan, Atlanta and. I've had people come from North Carolina to see me. So and and you Reagan from Augusta. So I'm an I'm happy to work with anybody in their schedule. If they can't get in during my mind, normal hours, which are eight to six pretty much seven days a week right now. So. I'm happy to happy to be accommodating, Maureen just thank you so much for coming on the show today. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to experience so much of this. I cannot wait to come back. Thank you Reagan's been amazing. Appreciate it. So much. Okay. That wraps up my interview with Marlene as you can see a lot of different cool things that decks Offit offers. Whether it's the Atlanta location or one of the other locations throughout the country. If you hear this podcast, and are inspired to go have testing done on your own. I would love to hear about it. Sometimes you guys message me and let me know when you've bought new eyelashes or you've tried out the new tended sunscreen. I love to hear about those stories. And even if you hear me talk about something, and you think Nope, that's not for me. I'm always open to hearing your feedback. You can get in touch with me through the website by leaving me a voicemail this lineal life dot com slash contact. You can Email me Reagan at this. Unbelievable. Life dot com, or I'm all across social media at Reagan Jones, d on Twitter, Instagram Facebook. I am going to take a quick commercial break. And then I'll be right back for the odds and ends ending of today show. Today's podcast is brought to you by the soy foods council. You know, as we talk on this episode about getting my ex's scan done, of course, one of the things that I am looking for is muscle mass. And over time I'll be looking to see how that muscle mass increases. Now when you hear me say that you may think that one of the things that I rely on for protein is Panama base protein while that is certainly a part of my diet. I also loved soy protein. Many of you may not be aware of this protein actually has been shown to help build muscle and increased strength. In fact, the comprehensive analysis that included nine different clinical studies published in two thousand eighteen found that among men engaged in weightlifting sway protein lead to similar gains in strength and muscle mass as animal protein and milk ratings. And the good news is that soy protein is especially advantages because it lowers blood cluster. All levels. So just like me. So it can be a preferred plant protein, whether you're vegan vegetarian or if you'd like more information and to find recipes, visit the soy foods council dot com. Welcome back now, occasionally things will show up here in the odds and ends ending of the show. And then make their way to be a larger podcast episode. I have a feeling this next topic is going to be one of those. But I am so dying to get this information out there and get you guys thinking about it and talking about it and talking about in the Facebook group, I'm gonna go ahead and just put it out there and get it on your radar, and the topic is that of any grams I was visiting with someone months ago who ask me what my Instagram, and I certainly hope I'm saying that correctly. I am not known for my good pronunciation, which is somewhat ironic given that I am a podcast or anyway, she was asking me what my type was. And I frankly didn't know I'd never heard of it as I looked into a little bit more. I became more and more interested in and intrigued, and then my friend Gretchen who you heard here on the podcast in the eyelashes episode happened to mention to me any grams recently we have fallen down a rabbit hole. And have been evaluating all of our family and friends and really diving deep into what has become a very popular and powerful tool for people to evaluate how they relate to themselves and others in the world. I'm not going to dive deep into any grams here at the odds and end ending as I said, you can probably expect a future episode to really go through what it is. And how people take the test, and what it all means. But I wanted to get it on your radar because as I started talking to friends about it, I found there's a huge divide. There are people who know about it who've taken the test, and who are very passionate about evaluating. What it all means? And then there are people who are completely in the dark and have not heard this terminology at all. But it is popular enough. Now that I wanna get it on your radar. So that you will know if someone around you starts asking about it what it is. If you aren't familiar with any. Graham, the word that I'm saying is spelled E N N E A G R A M. There are different paid tests that you can take. There are free ones. There's even an Instagram app. And I honestly like that when I haven't taken the test on they are actually took the test on the Ingraham institute website to get my first assessment, but I like the app because it has some really good information that talks to you about your different characteristics. And it's funny because I feel like even without taking the test. Once I started reading through those I was immediately able to identify myself, and I was immediately able to identify my husband, and that I found really intriguing about all this is that as you read through the different types. You can probably see yourself in a number of different areas. But after knowing what my type is I have been able to identify throughout my day. Throughout my week different situations that will pop up, and I will be confronted with my natural tendencies to do some of the things that let's be honest or at my best characteristics. I'll be candid and tell you that I'm a one and that might need and desire to be right. All the time is my achilles heel. So I am working on that we will dive deeper into that in a future episode. But if you are a listener of the show, a member of the podcast Facebook group, if you follow me on social media message me, let me know whether or not you'd have taken any Graham tests, what your number is. And what is says about you? Or better yet? What I said before the break and leave me boy smell at this millennial life dot com slash contact.

So happy for Re Friday everyone junior how you doing Is Always of doing great. I'm such an awesome week. It has been an awesome week. It really has and. I got up this morning and Got A little slow moving I don't know I Hula Hoop through most of the game last night. So I think that was it. I did a little too much hula hooping literally. Hula hooping. Yeah yeah with a weighted hula-hoop. Typically. I. Do it at halftime but I did it like I'm going say I don't know almost an hour of the game last night and Wow my appetite. That's why was a little tired tired but I still assume. So yes, that was a great game though wasn't it? Yeah I mean. Twenty nineteen it was kind of like A. Back and forth back and forth. It was good. I mean I just don't know when I thought I expected more from Tom. Brady I guess I don't know it just seems not connecting just yet that team with him I don't know. Yeah and he looked a little he'd looked a little different. He looked a little different to me. Did he look different to you? I mean I think this whole season Econo- did I I think. I. Don't know if he should have went and tried to stretch out another season he should've maybe just went out on top but. We'll see they're still football. The there is, and he's still I. Mean I know that last night they were three in one. They didn't win last night. So I mean it's not doom and gloom yet but I was I was fantasizing about the super bowl thinking what if Tom Brady t makes it to the super. Bowl, with the NFC, and then Josh Allen with the AFC you know and we have the bills and Tom Brady at the super bowl but with a different team, isn't that yeah. I mean Buffalo Buffalo in Tampa, that would be a I think that'd be a first in the super. Bowl. For Yeah, for sure for sure. But yeah. So I was cleaning my car this morning and there was a ton of dog hair but I did it myself took me about an hour and a half and and My car looks great and got rid of all the dog hair and that is my segue. You like it. I clean car and no dog. And you know it's funny because love my dog loves loves to go in the CAR and so he wouldn't stay out I had to keep vacuuming vacuuming but I you know Friday is is reserved.

You know. Just part of it, but I don't mind it. I love taking my dog's for rides especially, my new dog both of my new dogs love to get in the car and it's just it's just fun. It makes life more fun so. Anybody out there listening who's contemplating whether or not. They need a a new furry friend in their life. I would encourage you to go to operation kindness and let me ask you this. How long has operation kindness been helping animals in North Texas so We've actually been around since nineteen, seventy six. So we're about to celebrate our forty fifth year and I, know I I think a lot of people don't realize that then in the community for that long we actually started as a volunteer run organization operating out of people homes then eventually moved to a storefront and Garland and nineteen ninety nine we actually moved to our current location in. Carrollton. Wow. I used to be volunteer back in the ninety s believe. It or not oh yeah. You remember that Garland Location I. DO I do remember it I and I remember when you guys moved but yeah, you've been working out here in the community for so many years of North Texas but you know so many people look to animal shelters for adoptions but all you do is so much more because you operation kindness is a no kill shelter and that's amazing in itself. So you know you've got your pet food pantry. which provides food and supplies to low income families right that's really cool. Especially right now during covert and how is that going? Do you guys need more help? You always need help don't you? Of course, and you're absolutely right. We Really WanNa be a resource to the North Texas communities. So families can turn to us in difficult times for more than just pet adoption and also get that support that they might need with feeding the current pets that they have in. Their home. So we operate the pet food pantry in Addison. It's right around the corner from our main facility and we've been distributing about ten thousand pounds of food per month. This year and the streets purpose is really to provide just that temporary food if the sense to families in need whether they are low income like you said or maybe they're just experiencing a temporary hardship and then just a little bit of help in you know the mean time. Provide food dry food treats biscuits and cat litter. So it's more than just food and we can also kind of provide some of this other supplies as well. Anytime, we get something that maybe can't use at the shelter for animals than we can distribute it out to people do the pet food pantry. Oh, that's so nice and let me ask you this. Do you guys I? You probably do I'm the answer is, yes. Do you have like a where you can do an auto pay on your visa? Every month so that you guys can count on that money because that really does help an operation run so much more smoothly doesn't it? When you guys can count on people to support you regularly monthly donors are are huge for non profit organizations like ourselves and we actually call it the happy tale society. So if you are a a monthly supporter, you get a little bit special treatment from us. You Get an animal story in your inbox every month we tell you about this specific animals whose lives. You are changing with your regular steady support. Even if it's just five dollars a month that really adds up and helps the animals a tremendous amount. Well, I'm signing up today myself personally do it with all the organizations I. Feel. It's just doing my part to rescue a lot of animals right now I'm at twenty two but I don't see as many as I used to, and so it's all good for all of us to help out and we don't see as many on the streets because of organizations like. Kindness out there in the trenches doing the dirty work, right? Right It does and it's dirty, but it's also incredibly rewarding right? Absolutely. On the pet food pantry if you're a person who is in need of assistance from the Pantry, there's an application on our website. We're open every Thursday and Saturday for those distribution. So somebody's in need of that kind of support. They can get more information there. I. Love It. I do, and you guys you have a new and improved adoption center as well. Right open finally we're so excited about this the renovation and expansion at. Pacific eighty it's been a project and a dream that has years in the making We are nearing the finish line be expected to be finished at the end of this month we've been operating from that same plot of land on Erhard in Carrollton Cincinnati's, and now we're at the conclusion of this really major construction projects that it built a new medical way. We have a new building for large dogs and it renovated our current adoption center and put everything together under the same roof. Think another little known secrets about kind of that. We're kind of tucked away but on a pretty big plot of land, we have almost five acres back there. So we've also been undertaking some pretty significant landscaping. So putting in new walking trails for volunteers and staff members to walk dogs. We've added new off leash dog parks and created new areas for perspective of doctors to come and meet their potential new doors for the first time. So it's going to be really beautiful. We are. We cannot way. It's it's coming very very soon. Wow you've gotta be excited. That's a that's a huge project to undertake from. So many different levels. It's just it's a big operation you have up there but you guys do a lot of incredible work in the community and we're gonNA, talk about it right after the break I want to hear the history of who started operation kindness and some of your best stories out there. So everyone stay tuned it is furry Friday brought to you by Casteran pollock's we will be right back. Bed. English. Option. In the art. Wow. Sure. We'd give. kicked. Out. You're listening to one life radio. Make sure you check out our podcast and get to know the show at one life radio DOT com. Right. I of everyone it is for Friday it's going to have some. We're going to have a fabulous show. We already are. We've got Natalie Buxton on with does and she is such a passionate animal welfare advocate with expertise in marketing and development as director of marketing and communications for operation kindness. She develops strategies and storytelling to grow the organizations presence in North Texas and save more lives. We were talking about a lot of things before the break. Natalie. But one of the things that I wanNA know I wanNA hear the story of the great people that started operation kindness. How how did it begin? Absolutely? So operation kindness is Started by a group of volunteers back in the seventies and they really came together because they have been kind of individually working with the local shelters and and rescuing animals on their own, and they knew their hard to be a better way than how animal sheltering was being done back in the seventies. You know too many animals did not have positive outcomes and they were you know maybe getting taken to a shelter and get in Houston is and not having that opportunity to to find a new family. So this group came together and thought what can we do and how can we do it differently and so they started. Just. kind of fostering animals in their own home, and then it grew beyond that and then they got into a veterinary clinic and expanded their and then kept expanding over the years to where we are today and some of that original group they're still involved in the organization as donors and volunteers, but they really built operation kindness to be sustainable and to grow beyond just what they could do themselves. I love stories like this, I? Do you know I've never been able to have like start something like operation kindness I have like my own little mini operation kindness at my home you know, and that's all we can do. You know we all have to do our part you know to help animals they count on us especially domesticated cats and dogs. You know they really count on us to do the right thing and you know we talked about your new and improved adoption center that will. Be Opening soon but I heard that you guys have some sort of state of the art medical wink, and can we talk about some of the innovative treatments offered at the new wing? Absolutely. So this was actually the first phase of our construction projects. It was completed at the end of last year. So we've been able to really kind of get in there and bring in a lot of new patients of it's one of my favorite places because there's always something really inspirational going on. Compared to previous hospital say that we did have at this shelter it's more than triple the size. So just our capacity to care for sick and injured animals on a daily basis has really increased and we designed a lot of things about the new shelter are really revolve around how can we maximize and give them the best quality of life while they are spending their their time with US and fresh Air A. Theme that continues in the hospital too. So each medical room that there is it connects to its own private screened in porch that allows the animals even if they are still recuperating get. To. Doors and sunshine, which really helps improve their spirit and their quality of life. So they're not getting in a cage all day. They're actually able to get out and see the birds and the squirrels running around and really have You know a good experience going to help them feel better. As far as the state of the art features, it has a hustle does have a lab where we run a lot of testing in house we have a pharmacy, a double surgery suite, and that where we do all of our spay and neuters and orthopedic surgeries, amputations, and anything that the animals need. There's isolation rooms for various illnesses that are maybe contagious. Those can be contained in managed and I think the coolest thing that we've recently added is a therapeutic laser and what does that I I'm not a doctor. So I don't know exactly how it works. It seems like Magic to me, but it's cold laser therapy, and this is something that works on humans as well as animals. How animals with hip dysplasia or arthritis or they have maybe some mobility issues or they're recovering from orthopedic surgery or something like that. So this cold laser therapy can just help them feel better and reduce inflammation and swelling and things like that. We've really just recently got it a couple of weeks ago. So we're looking forward to seeing how it can help our patients in the hospital. Wow, that's so cool. I love the technology and the advancement that you guys are putting out there for for all of us to learn from right I've never heard of that for dogs or cats but I I love the idea I do and you guys are full of great. Ideas and here's your next one. Okay. So recycle to support our our to us. Can you tell us about that? We haven't heard during with Michael, support for I think it's more than ten years at this point and it's a really valuable partnership to us and to our supporters to because the way it works is that you know if you're watching any of these home organization shows on Netflix then you're cleaning out your closet and your cleaning out your kitchen, and so you may have household items and clothing that you want to donate, and so you can donate been through recycled to support actually common pick it up off of your porch at your house or various locations. You can drop it off to so very convenient and operation kindness received a donation based on the weight of all of the donations that are picks up. So the more you donate the more we received as a donation from cycle to support, and it's interest about one hundred, thousand dollars a year for the animals just by people cleaning out their closets and you know finding things that are used to them anymore but as a way for it to help the animals instead that's amazing. I'm actually going to call them after the show. ENDED UP, pick up next week maybe I it all the time. I. Love it I absolutely love it. Okay. So how do you all partner with other shelters in the area? Do you do that as well? Oh, absolutely. One of the things I'm most proud of is our partnerships with other shelters and rescues in the area. You Know Pet homelessness is a community problem and it takes a whole community coming together to solve it. So we all have the same goal right and we know that when we are working together and being collaborative that we can achieve more. So we serve as a transfer partner for about forty other shelters. North Texas and even a little bit broader than that our largest shelter partner, Dallas animal services who is doing fabulous things lately and really our role is to help these other shelters when they are low on space when they're running out of room if they had a pregnant animal or maybe they have some orphaned newborn puppies or kittens that they can't stay in a shelter environment, they really need to get into a foster home or sometimes they might have a severe medical case that they don't have the resources to treat but we have room in our hospital also, we can be that. Kinda Bridge to bridge the resource gap and all kinds of come together to figure out. Okay. Well, maybe you can't take this on but we and so one of the ways that we can do that is through the foster program that we have allow us to take those really vulnerable moms and babies you know they can't be bombarded. So a shelters really unsafe for them. So having that and our hospital allows us to take on some pretty significant cases that you know other filters through no fault of their own. They may not have the resources to be able to do that right and fostering is so important I happened to be the weakest foster parent out there. And give them back I fall in. Love. I'm the poster child of the foster. Failure Person. Just can't do it. I'm just really really bad at it. That's why have twenty two. Let Oh my gosh. But but you know I love this about your vision operation kindness and it is this a world where all cats and dogs have loving responsible forever homes. And I do feel it so important to find loving homes, but a responsible home is just as important to. So how does operation kindness prequalify those that are wanting to adopt? We believe that so many people had the capacity to be responsible pet owners and our role in operation kindness is to educate them and provide the resources that they need to make that possible. There's really been a shift in recent years in animal welfare to try to break down the barriers to adoption so that more animals lives can be saved in shelters. The. Reality of the situation is that if you're GONNA get pets we want you to adopt, and so we wanna make that process. Know an easy within reason as possible. So our adoption counselling process, really conversation based and very welcoming the what we WANNA do is to help you find the best pet that fits your family and your lifestyle and when people Kinda they may not be sure what that looks like. But our team our experts and they're gonNA give you on that path. You know some adopters anything they're bringing home a pet for the very first time and they don't really know what to expect, and so we're here. To prepare them for what that will look like so that they can be successful. You know what if potty training will flake or how do you keep your cats and scratching the couch you know we can help you with all those types of questions, really the animal and the family gets set up for success and how do you stop your cat from scratching everything in the House I would love the answer to that because it's a real problem in my life. I don't know what to do. Well we do have resources on our website for it, but there's a couple of different things you can do and the one that has been really successful with my cat is providing an alternative that's right nearby the couch. So if they are always scratching the same side of the couch, if you put a little scratching like a sicel scratching post, right next to it and encourage them maybe. Russell catnip on that give them a better alternative than they couch and an a positive outlet of will you? Can you still want to scratch right? That's very natural instinct for cats it's just scratched their claws. So giving them, the appropriate place to do it is is pretty important. Well, yeah, and trimming their nails helps for sure but it's hard to stay on schedule with eleven cats. One is hard enough. Yeah. Oh, they're they're little tyrants in the morning when I get up I'm like I. Know You want it they just WanNa. Be Mad. They're not talking to me they're like you know. Just griping until I beat them but I love them all so much I do and as I said at the opening of the show, they add so much to my life. And animals just do you know they can teach us so much about kindness and just loyalty and perseverance so many lessons we can learn from animals right? Absolutely and I think they're especially during this. What is it a really challenging year for all of us? A source of comfort and companionship and I think we're all finding now that we're spending more time with our pets than we ever have before and so really strengthening those bonds and realizing value about relationship. Yeah and what's really important? I. Think. That's what a Cova is taught the world. What's really? and. How can listeners help Natalie I mean in a word, it's it's donate honestly operation kindness exists because of primarily individual people supporting us with whatever they can give. We don't receive government funding or like that. So you know it's really individual people who are like we talked about giving that monthly donation of five dollars There's a lot of economic uncertainty this year, but the animals are still in need you know they have no idea that a pandemic is going on and so we still need to be able to provide their food and their medicine and everything that they. Might need and you can also make donations of goods to the pet food pantry at that something that really speaks to you right now we need mostly canned dog food and canned cat food and it can be any type any amount anything we just that it's unopened and that will go to those families who are in need right now. Wow. Thank you so much for the work that you do in our community. All of you at operation kindness I know I personally appreciate it and I'm there to support you. I will start making a monthly donation to you guys as well. And just. You know we all have to do our part to keep this world. To, keep it straight right. And Entre are absolute pleasure that we have because we love the animals and they you know reward us every day. Absolutely. Absolutely Natalie. Thank you so much.

She is the founder of changing habits, which is an educational health and Nutrition Business Cindy has authored and self published changing habits, changing lives prior to creating the documentary what's with Weed and twenty sixteen, and what's with we investigates how the modern. Practices of wheat growing has produced a product that is making people more susceptible to disease. Her website is what's with wheat dot Com and changing habits. USA. Dot Com always a pleasure to have around the show Cyndi o'meara welcome back. Much. It's always great to have you on the show I'm looking at your book lab to Table One of my all time favorites and your new cookbook that's out that is you're changing habits are recipe book with over one hundred and forty delicious healthy and easy to follow recipes. Let's start with what's with wheat. You know you took us on a journey through the agricultural industry exposing the dangers of Eight and other foods that many of us consume. On a daily basis. So what has been the response to the film have there been any changes in the farming practices since the film's release or the film's do stay very current. So I filmed in twenty sixteen was released twenty, six saints, twenty seventeen, and basically I believe the agricultural practices getting worse. But one thing that I am noting of more people talking about the most insidious, all the other the sides will pesticides and that roundup folklife sites. That's exciting. You know that's why I look at it and people are being gone. We'll to what else is out there. So they're also asking questions so. when you look at the agricultural industries starting to say. more chemicals being used because the soil's dead. The trump's a not healthy and like any human, that is not healthy. They'RE GONNA be propped up with drugs until they figure out, they have to go back to the grass roots and the groceries being the soil same with their gut microbiome there at grassroots if that's not working when aren't working so we get out soil fixing it the soil in the land six and life's good well and I love your story. Your personal story is really amazing. Can you share it with our listeners? Wow. Well, my my like it's to me it's huge because I was I'm from a family and my mom's from Iowa USA and she was the oldest of eleven and it's a family that not done well with how because I believe you know my mom was in the beginning of the a chemical revolution she was born ninety seven by fifty, nine I can leverage things sprayed and then. there was David Tastes, pride nineteen, forty five, and you know all my uncles and not all that all. But one uncle had the disease of him affiliates. A fist helmet was ever in the family and then we go through the generations and we say type one diabetes we've got but carry we've got my sister had five ordering means as as she died of. Cancer, my mother died of. Lung cancer and it was like dying alive I have. It's not been a beautiful ride for our family and my belief is that it's not genetics. it's the the chemicals and the environment that have caused the problem and so what? We what I've done is I've changed my environment of change the chemicals in my life I've changed everything that I can. So I can live the healthiest and I turned sixty two weeks ago and I'm not on any medications I have no chronic as I have no I o months I have the energy are had when I was in my forties. if not thirties. So you know, I think I'm doing the right thing garrison, the pudding ninety, one person but I'm doing the best that I can. Well, you know it's funny. You brought up a glyphosate then you brought up Dt they're both made by Monsanto by the way along with the atomic bomb and our. T. Arberg is that what? The RB G. H. The hormones that they pump into cows to force them to produce more milk? I mean the things that they create are just so bad for humanity and I don't know how they've gotten away with it. All these years poisoning people basically poisoning our earth, and I'm glad that you're at the forefront fighting big companies like that because we all need to fight do you agree I think we all do and we don't have to necessarily be activists with placards and we have to be five that we can actually do it quietly being the we choose. Yeah and by. All Astro thing. Yeah. Anything like that. We actually are not going. We don't like you. We're just saying we don't agree with what you're doing and we're not prepared to give you money. So the share that you own the food, you consume the clothes that you buy. If your mind full of guys you out of my Powell activist in the world absolutely A. Power, you speak with your feet and you speak with your wallet. Right. Yeah I'm not actually getting out the gloves. Too busy for that. But you can send a powerful message by cutting off a more and more of their revenue by not using their products or or you know using the products of other companies that use their products to grow their food. That's why organic really is best. If you can afford it, which leads me to a question that I have for you. Do you follow the clean thirteen and the dirty dozen look I used to. But the more I found out about agriculture the more I was I'm really insistent on everything that we tied in is organic. So. You know people say all you privileged this year that you can do that well, I do the Best I. Can I run around the place trying to find the best one I I'm in that community supported agriculture box I, grow my own food in. As well as I do have that poster at my time and I also have a found that I produced fruit trees and I've animals, and so some May this has become an old consuming. Love. I want to have my hands in the dirt. I want to support my local that supporting the land. So the as taking healthy food in it is healthy food, but I know that my farmers is todd all of actioning. The the need for having healthy soil so that we can sequester carbon and all of those things that we know that they are doing to say this planet. Now with their, you know they say that regenerative farming is one of the biggest things when it comes to climate change. So I'll put in every minute of the day I will not support the monocultures, but you do you know the Working groups environmental working groups. clean I they've changed their name and fifteen to to do those great stop. But eventually I'd love to see people got you know I'm not paid any chemicals in my on my say well, you know today we want to share about your great books. Lab Table is one that you wrote what last year I believe dot being elaborate and start making better choices for your table and your new cookbook is just amazing. It really is.

Either healthy or unhealthy depending on the ingredients us. So the basics of your ingredients are really important. So I. The way I learnt nutrition was I went to the University of Colorado in Bulga incredible faith up is name fan given and food years on I have reconnected with him to thank him for what he has done for my life. What he thought, he was and policy, and that taught me a very good philosophy about choosing food. So we five felt that it was a food and he said this if it was a food, we've been aiming for fifteen thousand knees plots. Guy For if it's not be very gb of it so I thought. Well, there's a really good. Good. A good way of looking at food. So when we look at about, if we look at, we gotta this Migraine Migraine's on the show like not even a century or just going on a century whereas with Batas Bang for ages.

So check it out and you can get it at just about any grocery store or go straight to Casteran pollock's DOT COM but we have a very special guest continuing on with us today Cyndi o'meara she is an internationally acclaimed nutritionist author and documentary maker. She is the founder of changing habits, which is an educational health the Nutrition Business Cindy has Authored and self published changing habits changing lives prior to creating the documentary what's with wheat in two thousand sixteen, and what's with wheat investigates how the modern agricultural practices of week growing has produced a product that is making people more susceptible to disease. You can find her at what's with wheat dot com. You can find the documentary there what's with wheat dot Com and changing habits, USA DOT COM and speaking of. Wheat and your new your new cookbook which I have in front of me, which is absolutely wonderful. It's changing habits recipe book with over one hundred and forty delicious healthy and easy to follow recipes. We're getting ready to enter into the holiday season. Halloween, just around the corner people are starting to bake and so one of the things that I have difficulty with is choosing a flower. That's really really good. What do you recommend? When you can make. It really depends on whether you're waiting tolerant or not. So if you not wait in color and I was look for the old traditional Flou- so I'll look at spelt as the least of the traditional ones. But then there's also emma wait and something called on corn and I know they're available out there because I say them when I come to the US and I am them in the grocery stores. But if you're not able to eight wait, then there's lots of weight substitutes and one of the things that I do in my recipe book is I teach you how to make your own weight substitute because what I'm finding is that a lot of the substitutes have GPS ingredients. So they might have starches in binders and fillers instead of the real ingredients. So in the recipe book, I talk about using different flowers and how we can mix them together and for me when this all started, which was back in the nineteen nineties because my husband was diagnosed Celia and I was looking for though is different flowers I started to just trial and era what was the based on what works and mixed every slough with every flower until I found one that? You know work similarly, it will never work this time. Yeah. But when I've found weight and on corn, which the very old heritage wait then it was interesting. We started to experiment them and to see if anybody had any symptoms with it, not my husband that was a different night but for the rest of the family and was it was interesting when we Use them the symptoms went. Yeah will you know you've done a fabulous job putting this cookbook together you have we've got about two minutes. What do you want our listeners to know Cindy about about their eating habits or how they cook? What do you want them to know? What's the number one takeaway today I'm the government's GonNa save you you need to number one become educated and I do that in the beginning of the book as well as lead to table. Once you're educated, then find local sauce and find somebody that you want to supporting your local area for your fruits and vegetables have a one ingredient pantry.

"The the aw hey everybody this is diane. Hello and welcome to biters and this is and what other things do you note on the name of jelly beans. That just totally took me out of this episode didn't really like how do you go thirty to forty years without knowing that something is called something as simple as jelly beans like she said some other she had heard other people but she thought it was a brick brand name but i'm like no ziplock is a brand name not jelly beans jelly beans or jelly beans so i totally assumed because she looks indian that they were writing off as kind of a cultural cultural thing and so i was also thinking i was like jelly beans at the actual name of them because sometimes you can't say the name of of something like kleenex you have to say tissue or ziplock. You have to zip top you know so i thought they would just weren't saying the brand name but it's jelly belly. It's it's not jelly beans and again. I thought it was also a cultural thing where that was just the name wherever she was from the brand name of of whatever jelly being they had so i will tell you you know and the biters listen last week know that i just finished a really challenging visit with our mother and i laughed when greece reese said my mother was an interesting woman. She both made up her answers and how to be right. I was like oh. She's is just giving me my moment. I'm still recovering <hes> yeah. Parents are hard. Sometimes my god all right so we're talking about fear the walking dead season five live episode ten two hundred ten words per minute and did you know that the average person reads between two hundred and two hundred and fifty words per minute so listening to something on double speed is really just your average reading. I didn't know that yeah. I actually looked at that because i'm like i just you feel like well for one like listening to what she's listening to on double speed with just exhausting and stressful so i don't know how she was doing it like usually read to enjoy and unless this is like a textbook or something but yeah i did it say how quickly people i usually speak no. I'm curious to know i'm curious to know how a different that is from how quickly people read yeah because that sounded. It's just faster than you would read but i looked it up and it's between two hundred and two hundred and fifty words per minute well. I'm guessing we read much more quickly than we speak speak. I think that i read slow but it depends on what i'm reading like. If i'm reading something for information formation i usually read it quickly. If i'm reading something for pleasure i have a tendency to like. Turn my mind inward and visualize everything so i read it a lot slower. I'm just thinking you need to read more. You know what i thought about it. The other day and i was like between everything all the articles that i read and all the twitter that i read and all the i._m._d._b. That i read i read a novel every week right but it's not the same thing <hes> i beg to differ. I'm gonna keep picking on you so let's get to the numbers all righty so what was your reading so my rating wasn't quite as bad as the episode before last but it wasn't as good as last episode <hes> <hes> i rated it at three point three white mustangs so i was totally mistaken. I read your messages to me as you really liked this episode. Ooh so i was kind of like i didn't like it as well as you you did but now i'm actually thinking. I liked it more than you did. I'm sure you did. I rated it four point. Oh one candy beans out of five wow a._c._n. New candy beans. You're gonna be your ratings so yes ask so. I feel like i'm kind of the opposite of everyone except for the guys the right for forbes every god so i haven't i didn't find eric canes through your but i did find paul tassie so interested to hear what eric kane how to say we'll so i feel like i'm opposite of everybody in that. I really really liked last episode road and everyone really didn't and i really did not like this. Episode and wow episode was awful. Thomas o'meara says that if you didn't like this episode you need to have your head examined so i will have you know that i do have an appointment one thirty tomorrow and i'm not even kidding and we're waiting to find out what the results are right. It's probably not a tumor. I don't know. Have you had any brain imaging gun. No actually i haven't rent. It's probably just stress related headaches but when you have them for four days generally enderle. You're like i'm going to go. Have my head examined well. All i can say it's about time is not sponsored by golly. Oh my god speaking of podcasts. I was listening to the joe rogan experience today because he interviewed bernie sanders way back way back at the beginning of the month. He interviewed bernie sanders okay. He spends like the first five minutes of his podcast talking talking about his sponsors really really. I don't know if it's every podcast because i probably won't listen to another one until he interviewed someone else that medicare about but i hate listen. I listened to his podcast whenever he interview somebody. I don't like oh. That's really funny yeah. No my life is short to hate. Listen to things you know. I used to kind of like joe rogan but like he's got a little bit off the rails. I'm going to admit i didn't know joe. Rogan was comedian yeah yeah. It's so speaking of not talking about sponsors so i have to. I have to tell everyone my house has been broken into actually a couple of times and we just figured it out with the things that we noticed for missing and then they broke in at one thirty in the morning while we were home sleeping so so we actually just invested in a whole bunch of ring security products and i now i obsessively watched my dogs in the backyard accu hard all day cast not sponsored by like actually had to quiet. My phone has like every <unk> time. My dogs walk out the back door. I get a notification that there's motion in my backyard so the other real housewife was wondering if you had successfully set up your alarm and apparently you have love okay. It's super easy seriously not sponsored by ring but like it's pretty idiot proof but if they have random people breaking into your house stealing booze. This is the system for you exactly exactly yeah. That's that's so far. That's the only thing that we noticed that was missing and we ordered ring products products and then when they broke in at one thirty in the morning we'll they were still home and my wonderful black lab chased them off terrifying them hopefully to death <hes> they scurried back over the back fence and left shoe marks on the phones yeah and we proceeded to order pretty much everything. That ring has several of them in fact so yeah. That's my week. I'm moving a bit like i have to keep up with the joneses because we don't have a security system. Knock on wood while you live out in the boonies where like the biggest threat right now was wildfire right so you ask me how my week was alaska's burning morning so there is a major fire that has at this point destroyed about fifty structures and displays numerous families. It's about eighteen miles north of us less than twenty miles from hearing you. There is another fire that is about <music> six or seven miles east of us. That's terrifying so our bug. Out bag is packed. <hes> we have a plan plan to take the horses out i even it looks like it's starting to encroach even before an evacuation is called. Oh bull will evacuate them and then we'll come back and get the rest of the house so yeah alaska's burning so yeah. I guess what we're saying is if you i pray. Please pray for water if you don't i dunno it's start thinking about sacrificing some go and if you have extra money some money to the red cross cost because they're working their tails off for the people who've been displaced right now yeah yeah and other than the last couple of years wildfires not something. Among people in alaska are very used to at least not in our living areas. It's it's tragic. It's terrible and it's actually actually threatening areas that were impacted by the sakai fire for years ago so there is a chance that people who rebuilt for years ago are going to be looking at rebuilding again at this point isn't it has not made it that far south and i'm hoping it doesn't but it's a very close to the boundaries of the sakai fire anywhere that there's any sort of natural disaster like tornadoes floods earthquakes things like that. I really want people to rebuild stuff that survives. Whatever the natural disaster in that area is so like. I'm thinking at this point. Stop using stick construction start using stone you. You've never seen fires like these fires. That's true that's very true. It's devastating well so yeah. It's the apocalypse everyone right so let's get back to our favorite apocalypse zombie apocalypse yeah all right so the numbers for this episode <hes> the headline on tv by the numbers was fear. The walking dead holds so i don't have numbers for the week but i have numbers for sunday and it maintained its eighteen forty nine rating that it had last week so there were about four hundred thousand people in that age group who watched it. The overall number was slightly lower so it was one point four million last week. It was one point point three seven million this week so essentially the same right still beat out by ninety day fiance sixth <unk> overall in the eighteen to forty nine group beat ted bundy mine of a monster whites what's right. I was like i'm going to have to find that and watch it exactly. I would have rather been watching that for those of you who are interested it. Apparently we have a new show on investigation discovery. Of course it is so. I'm going to be looking for that man. I think that's probably the one of the only the reasons why i still have cable although i could probably find them on. Some of their platform was figuring that i would look and see if i could find it on another platform because they missed it on cable but we'll see we'll see there's always pay for it or not. I was gonna say there's always the on demand. At least we have on demand for certain channels channels that we can catch to figure out how to do it which means a pass word which yada yada yada. It's just easier to pay two bucks to amazon. I know it's still it's just easier to keep cable. Keep like the auto payment going the cable than having the set up an entirely new platform for watching tv right there with ya seriously only the reason why i still pay three hundred dollars a month for cable and internet yup. That's about where we're at two. We all right so the episode titled two hundred ten words permit. You have it exactly right. It's the speed at which grace was listening to her book. <hes> who so i thought it would do a little bit of a deep dive on the book because although although i have read books by dickens i have not read a tale of two cities have you of course you read book books by dickens. Come on i was in a._p. English i had to read books by dickens sure sure cliff's notes. I have never read a coupon oops. Oh my wife. I pride myself. We've got to be because we both like the same gothi halloween fabric apparatchik story for another time. I did buy fabric this weekend. I've more fabric on saturday than our mother did. I don't know what i'm gonna do with it but i bought more fabric on saturday than our mother. Is it in your bug out bag. No it's not so hopefully we survived the flaming apocalypse pacalypse all right so i thought this was really cool because it really does kind of speak to the themes that they're trying to talk about in walking dead and fear of the walking dead so i did find a site called www spark notes dot com which is like cliff notes but superfan and and they said that in a tale of two cities dickens asserts his belief in the possibility of resurrection and transformation both personal and societal all which is exactly what we're talking about in walking dead and fear the walking dead right. I'm so glad you did the deep dive. The other thing that was really interesting is that a tale of two cities is set during the french revolution and one of the themes that dickens covers over and over again according into the site anyway is that violence will give way to a new and better society again perfect for this ambi- apocalypse yeah you know i've actually been watching some stuff lately on <hes> how our society is basically cyclical anytime there is a great eight expansion of <hes> knowledge in peace and wealth and health and things like that that we like abruptly start regressing. I sing back into you know basically the dark ages and so it would stand to reason that once we kind of come out of that brutality that it you know we go back to an enlightened age okay so now we're entering comparative religions our it's interesting that you say that because the hindus believe that we we live in particular ages and each age is kind of related to a god or goddess and their their mythic presentation and right now they say that we're living in the kali yuga which is like the most degraded violent horrible age before everything gets destroyed in reborn. That sounds fantastic stance that we live in the kali yuga. That sounds wonderful k._l._i._f. He's a anybody wants to look it up. I think i might actually look that up. That's sounds interesting all right so real quickly are writers were andrew chambliss and ian goldberg the show runners and i got into a bit of a conversation position with thomas o'meara and aim for the head and i think it was i think it was diana who was responding but she was making the point that these writers writers seem to do better when they're dealing with a small cast <hes> because i know that she liked this episode better and again tom o'meara really it'll be like this episode and he pointed out the gentleman was not in it so he said we can't peg just on gentleman being in the series see maybe that maybe it's because alicia wasn't in this kosovo that i didn't like it. Do you probably didn't like it either and just a response a quick response to brian milosz from last week so he said that it was david johnson not david leslie johnson mcgoldrick who wrote last week's episode. It's is actually the same dude. He was just writing david johnson so so we were both right yeah i david david. Johnson's are pretty common name. I think i may do the whole four name name. If i want to stand out so i i wonder if like i wonder why he switches back and forth well. Maybe he didn't wanna stand out given how poorly received last week's episode was well david. I liked it you and like two other people probably your mom. I mean that a good way. Your mom likes everything you do right all right our director so get this. His name is ron underwood and when i looked him up he directed tremors <music> he directed city slickers okay but not only did he direct tremors but he also wrote tremors tremors tremors to tremors four the t._v. Series trevor's and at tremors cold day in hell and let's just be honest tremors. The the first movie is a classic movie. Levin kevin bacon at is fine <hes> and reba mcentire. Oh my goodness. I completely forgot about that ad right so the other thing that was kinda cool about ron underwood is that he has worked on a whole bunch of t._v. Including agents of shield grey's anatomy castle but he's got seventeen episodes of once upon a time which always ties into to our walking dead universe somehow well ties into our show runners directly because they both wrote for once upon a time <hes> so i would be eerie surprised if they had not worked with run underwood in the past right yeah ron underwood is definitely no slouch slouch. She has got a ton of director. Credits director credits overall. This is his first fear. The walking dead credit is he could he could direct again. I think you did a good job. You and i are differing about this this week but he could direct again. Yeah i don't know i. I don't think it's the directing i think it was the overall subject matter of the show <hes> boy okay. I'm gonna see something for my writing potpourri free right now okay. I actually really liked the plot. I thought taking aside detour to kill someone who was begging to be put down and buried humanely and to kind of raid this huge mall that supposedly had all of these supplies was totally believable bowl my god we will get into that r._a. Before we get into a featured cast i'm once again and say here's the podcast. I'm listening listening to this week the man in the window have you heard of. I think you said this before haven't you. It's about the golden state killer okay i. I swear that we've mentioned. We've talked about it because i just find. We sat down and listened to it this week career. <hes> um yeah i that is a book i have actually read was <hes> patent oswald's deceased wife dark. Yes and i listened to that podcast and reading. The book led me to listen to the podcast. Maybe it was the other way around but i did read that book you read. I'm so proud of you yeah well. It was about a serial killer like i could resist right so that's my podcast recommendation for the week serial killers in apocalypse. Yes nothing better. Unfortunately i don't have a preacher podcast. I recommend this week because you and i are still behind on preacher sure yeah. It's getting a little tough but i will tell people have the weirdest experience so it was telling you before we sign on tonight and i sent you a taxed my my track for my d._v._r. Was off by like two sentences so i was trying to watch preacher and like preacher was bleeding over into to the commercials and then the commercial would run through the soundtrack for the first couple of sentences preacher and it was so disconcerting and so do disorienting but of course for those of you who don't watch preacher. This episode started out with jesse on a kind of a drug trip and so they thought it was totally part of the show. I i probably for about the first ten minutes that it was going on. I thought oh my god. This is a total gimmick about jesse being tie no oh i really do think it was my sound track for the d._v._r. I forget where it was like. Sitting at a circus or something like something terrible happened off to the right will like the clowns were performed or something that we were all sitting there like is this part of the show. No it wasn't was not part of the show at all. All that was exactly the way preacher felt funny alright take into our future cast so are featured cast member number is kind of a one and done it was charlie boden aka chuck so there really isn't a lot got out there about him. He is this is of courses first and only beer the walking dead credit. He is on regularly on on a show called good trouble which is on free forum. Which is the old i think a._b._c. family channel and good trouble is actually shortly. A spin off of a show called the fosters and good trouble just got a second season so i'm not sure if charlie is going to be the on that but he was in eight episodes of good trouble and that seems to be the biggest credit other than a t._v. Series that was from twenty fourteen eighteen to twenty seventeen called halt and catch fire which was on a._m._c. I say yes so that is kind of his link to a._m._c. and thus property. Oh that's funny that he only got a just a one and done. Maybe maybe that every once in a while they'll do kind of <hes> kind of the anthology like they did with the red michetti. Maybe we'll get charlie's backstory someday <hes> it would be cool but i doubt it not total backstory but just like a web series of seeing that they're doing the web soad's you know the kind of stopped doing that a couple years ago. I thought that they were going to should do them with the new series. I thought i read something about some web zero coming up or happening or something. I'll have to find that and see if i could boast okay so his first acting credit is the t._v. Show without a trace and he's had a lot of one offs like cold case will and grace <hes>. He was <hes> in wizards of waverly place c._s._i. <music> mommy and n._c._i._s. n. t. s. yeah which i gotta tell you. My husband has one of the two of those playing constantly background. Oh that's funny. Oh it's maddening. I always have probably like dateline i._d. Or something like that you know twenty twenty or something on in the background that has <hes> killers serial killers. He did have a small role in the movie insurgent. I read those books. Those were great books. I was bummed at the get more traction. I know the movies weren't that great. He has also been tweeting a lot at charlie bodin on twitter about a tv series. He has been one episode the soda but it just got a second season so i don't know if he's going to be <hes> in the subsequent seasons but to show on the b._e._t. Channel called boomerang. I don't know if it's a kind of like the movie from the mid nineties boomerang halle berry and uh eddie eddie murphy yeah yeah yeah we're dating ourselves right so he is married and his twitter profile just went down for me and fortunately <hes> his is an actor. I resist gonna say that. She's an actress named paula roads there we go paula roads <hes> and actually have probably seen more stuff. She's in than i have been heason season except he has a youtube channel and if you go to charlie baudoin's youtube channel you will see all of the television division commercials. He has been in the thing that was surprising to me. When i was on youtube right so he i mean there's probably like thirty or forty the commercials here and there for big national like he's been in toyota bud light taco bell del taco chevy heavy city hyundai progresso soup. He's been car guy marriott. Allstate subway a walmart dunkin donuts horizon <hes> southwest airlines and so he's actually been in two commercials that super bowl commercials <hes> the first one was a to commercial and the second one was just recently <hes> six months ago. It was the olay the oil of olay a commercial. It has sarah michelle gellar in it so i had to watch it <hes> yeah it's pretty funny like a serial killer breaks into their home home and <hes> they're hiding in their bedroom and she's trying to unlock her phone to call the police and her her phone won't recognize her face because she's been using oil of olay so it was a really funny commercials but yes so he's a big commercial guy so i when i saw some of the commercials i was like really. Is this the same guy so i went and got i._m._d._b. Picture to faces from the commercial and i was like it really is the same guy really is the same guy <hes> so yeah. He does a lot of commercial work and they're super funny. <hes> like i said i haven't seen a a lot of what he's been in <hes> as far as movie and television probably seen a lot of his commercials and for those of view who do want to follow him on twitter he is as super lefty so if that is not your thing don't follow or don't hate but yeah so unfortunately he's a one and done i after after watching a couple of things that he's been in commercials other stuff on youtube <hes> <hes> commercials for his shows. Hey i'm kind of disappointed that he isn't going to be a member of the main cast. I mean i guess we gotta kill hill some people some of the time but i don't know he just seems like the money i seriously kill somebody yeah and not just somebody who has a one and done and now a few of those kids so that was charlie. Aka check <hes> like i said not much out there but it looks like he has quite a career by himself so well. I have a few things are whispers corner. It's not huge but there were a few things in k. I is that michael rooker has been cast in and fast and furious nine. I had no idea there were nine of them. No i've seen like two and a half. I've got to be honest haven't seen him husband's seen him. I always seem to catch the second one the when the lake has almost absolutely nothing to do the rest of the series well eventually someday. I'll probably given and watch them but today is not that day. That's gonna be like a weekend bench. Oh there's so many other things i'd rather spend my weekends on like eighteen hours of tv. We have movies although i am finally knitting again and i'm knitting a baby blanket so maybe i need like nine hours of mindless movies and the soundtracks rex can totally be off because you won't be looking at the screen right of so also whispers corner and this is a big thing that i just found out about about tonight and it was funny. I had just come across the magazine article. When thomas o'meara sent me a message on facebook christian sarajevo's has been cast on a netflix selena. Wow i didn't even know net flex was doing selena so is supposed to spend who who seasons and it's supposed to begin production next month so tom was saying that he really felt like this meant that that rosetta is probably going to get killed off off the season. You know we've been talking about it. You have it now rosie going to leave a baby behind yeah but he i don't know it's not that shocking we've i. I thought we were gonna be she was they were gonna kill. The pregnant woman leave a baby but of course you know that'd be. There's going to have three daddy's so and she is on borrowed time because rosie zero was gone in the comic books those point yes and no i mean who really is on borrowed time at this point even if they're dead in the com ironically if rick russillo around rick would not be on borrowed time carl would not be on borrowed time. No i know we're completely off. The maps will live for a comic series that is now finished that had a ton of headlines about six weeks ago right right right <hes> so i did not see eric canes review but paul taxis review of this episode food was titled fear the walking dead just made morgan do something unforgivable so he did not like that morgan bailed on grace ace when greece needed him the most so eric mentioned that in his review and he actually links to policy review in his review. That's funny so eric's. Title was fear the walking dead season five episode seven review another terrible. No good would very bad episode. You guys are right up my alley. I mean i don't quite loathe it as much as they did but yeah this this episode just didn't speak to me. I didn't loathe it. I mean i do. I gave it to me. Give it a solid b. This episode certainly didn't and speak to me at two hundred and ten words per minute all right so the walking dead and the jimmy kimmel show got fined by the f._c._c. this week. I see that for good reason so. I don't know that it was great reasons. The jimmy kimmel show is paying nearly four hundred thousand dollars to the f._c._c. and walking dead was find a little over one hundred thousand dollars for overuse of emergency tones in their shows and it was apparently the episode omega where emergency tones were used twice so that's why the walking dead is having to write a fat check to the u._s. Treasury so i completely agree with his fine and i also think that they should expand upon it and any music that has sirens in it that will play on the radio in your car should get find. Do you really agree with it for a television visit show. I was totally sucked in. I just wanted to harp on the fact that i hate that when there's a so that has sirens in it and you're like you're in your car and you're like where is it. Where is it right now. I'm annoyed more at whenever they do the emergency alert test at like two a._m. On a wednesday morning and your t._v.'s running than i am having it on his show but but i get you know that you really shouldn't overuse it on a show. That's not emergent. I certainly wouldn't get distressed by it being used on the walking talking dead probably because i was so engaged in the walking dead. It seemed like it fit right. Anybody who's watching the walking dead would like be <music> actively watching it not just have on in the background and if you did it's probably a rerun. Yeah i dunno or no. It just seemed like a weird fine. I totally get it but yeah. I guess let that be a lesson to us. All don't don't miss us emergency tones because the fines are happy phil right all right <unk> baby girl has a name and probably not gonna pronounced pronounce it right but it looks like it's coral s. o. c. oh are are oh the nickname that goes with it as cocoa all and the way that they named her is apparently this is a family we name in christian cirrhosis family and it means relief or help in spanish doc interesting my oh what was that i like coca yeah all right my very last thing and this is probably in your writing potpourri. Garri is that this episode of fear the walking dead was actually a tribute to the nineteen seventy eight classic dawn of the dead it will is this. It's my favorite of the dead. I will tell you it's my most memorable of the dead well. I liked the a remake too. I've never seen the remake. Can you believe that no so speaking of movies that i've never seen and now i'm gonna get stuck watching watching them. There apparently is some sort of zombie apocalypse movie that sounds atrocious being made by the shark nato people. Yes yes yes zombie wave. I think i think so and hobby was like you know your sister's gonna make you watch it and review it. I don't know i'll i'll watch it first and see if it's bad enough or good enough zombie tidal wave it is one of like the shark data we because it has e._m.'s airing. It sounds appalling. I don't like i may have to seriously drink while watching it. When does it come out. I think it's already already out. I'm assuming direct to sci-fi yeah definitely all right. We have to do that offseason. We'll have to create a drinking game to go with it to make a tight able exactly with that. Let's get into our goods bats and uglies all righty so tell me you're good if you have one so. I did have one <hes>. I actually liked the the the charlie storyline. I liked that. There was a guy who reached out because he wanted to do some good on his way out like i. I kind of feel like that would be me is i. If i had gotten i would be the one to lead zombies away because i was a goner anyway so oh i i really like how charlie reached out and was like i heard you guys can help but i really just want you to come and basically put me down down and bury me under the sars like don't let me be one of those things and <hes> the he had this iraqi stockpile l. of a mall that nobody had touched and he'd been able to keep safe for an undetermined amount of time but i like the he would you know was just like you guys are doing good. I'm going to die anyway. Please come do good with my stuff so i just i just i like that and i also liked in the end. They didn't actually find him walking around as a walker. They actually were able to meet him and talk to him. Dan and give him a little bit of peace on a cloudy night. You and i had exactly the same good on and that's what i brought up earlier earlier. So i'm glad that you brought it up and the thing that i wrote is so often we complain of a manufacturer plot like snowstorm like last season snowstorm on the main walking dead so the walking dead could just film snow. I actually believe that are survivors would track this guy down right right. Am i mean he said it in his his radio to them that he was like i have all of this stuff that you guys can use and i mean i even have an an urgent care and you know all this other stuff and so of course like there was a time on the episode where they were like. Oh i think it was it was like i can't believe we track this guy down just to kill him and it's like well. We didn't just track guy down to kill him. We also came to get all of the hard rock hard candy and urging allies candy beans peas and urgent care supplies and g._n._c. supplies. They totally were stuck in g._n._c. Every mall has g._n._c. okay and every every mall that has a g._n._c. They have the roll down gate. I'm sorry they do like. It's not just a little like storefront with glass like they all have the role. Sorry sorry even will the. I get the urgent care having the gate. 'cause you know medical supplies but g._n._c.'s sees like that's kind of their standard box store thing. They have to have the roll down gate because let's be honest. Protein way is super expensive and all i have to say is ooh protein way. I don't know that i wanna spend zombie apocalypse eating that although it is a good source of protein so <music> as someone who has actually done these soil int- diet manning you know what it is look it up and soil does not people <hes> like it's not terrible you kind of just get used to anything or or you make it better like you like i would add cold brew coffee to my soiling so it would be coffee flavored silent <hes> so yeah no i mean it's it would be really good in the resolve the apocalypse lips. It's all of your nutrition in one <hes> so yeah. That store is a gold mine that mall was a gold mine time yeah and unspoiled gold mine other than how he however he let you know sixties ambiance in how did that happen <hes>. Maybe they were stuck there. I don't know i think i think he was careless. All right oh go ahead all that long in that mall by himself no raiders no zombies and like just one day like the hinges runoff door and they all get in okay. Yes i don't know i don't have a good answer for a but that was your good end. Mike good yes so should i move onto my bad add. Tell me what your dad was twice. I really yeah so hear me out on this way okay because i really liked liked white in this episode so loved dwight in this episode except he did the thing that we have been planning about that. Our group has been doing all of season season five a and that was i'm going to risk my life to save somebody. I'm going to go out of my way to probably get shot in the head by by some rando in order to save their soul. It annoyed me so bad. That lien would yeah that he was just like i'm i'm gonna unload my gun and i'm gonna get captured and he's this guy's probably gonna shoot me in the head or torture me. They can find me oilfields but i'm gonna save even no. You're not no like imagine you as a savior. Look how much it took to save you. There was no just one guy talking doc innuendo it you had to basically get totally fed up with megan and the saviors and you had to trust a whole bunch of other people and your wife had to leave you know you are not saving this other guy. I'm sorry and you totally risked your life and the group to do it and it annoys me when people do that. <hes> plus zip ties are super easy to get look how. How many times has she been zip tied. I i was thinking about the that's exactly what arab sub he's like. Biting with teeth and all you have to do is classic your hands too especially if they're in front of you. Clap your hands together and then you pull down really hard and they separate as like your elbows. Go out of your outside of your body. You know they <hes> <hes> go out from your ribcage. That's all you have to do to break. Those flimsy little taste. Trust me. I'm a chick was taken self-defense classes ad nauseam. That's how you breaks at times that are tied in front. I'll file that away. It's terrible that women have well that people have we know that but especially those little white funsies ties those are so easy act he probably could have actually chewed through them in the amount of time that he was left alone own but i digress that would have ruined storyline actually would have made it better because then he could have called cock the guy as soon as you open the thing yeah. No i just i we griped about it all last season or all earlier this season that people are putting being themselves and the group at risk to save people who don't want to be saved so that was my bad. My bad is also something that we've griped about off and on for the past at least season. Maybe a little bit longer. It was so dark yeah yeah and it's it. There's gotta be some kind of production thing that they can do to make those dark scenes still all dark but actually watchable yeah and i just keep going back to the whole i think they're like. They're there filming them for their equipment and not taking into account that most people are watching these on t._v.'s that are more than four years old you know t._v. T._v. is a brand new yeah so it's not a t._v. Show production issue is it is it's. I don't know if they're they're filming. Can't first cinematic release or you know that's heather equipment films it or but yeah i i i didn't notice it so much episode it the whole episode so it was the scenes with dwight and raleigh and it was some of the scenes with morgan and grace yep yeah but it wasn't the whole episode but there were times again where i was like. I can't see a thing yeah okay. I know oiled. I know joining bifocals. I know i'm complaining about my hip but i can't see anything funny. I like the first bunch of seasons for walking dad. We all complained about the sound we all needed sound bars and now we're complaining about the lighting yeah. I don't know that that was was my thing. We've talked about it before. I'll probably talk about it again. I really really really wish that they would do something about it yeah and like we said they're not the only ones who have the issue because of course game of thrones had that complaint also so no i'm not i'm still not far enough in game of thrones where it's an issue yeah got and that's the funny thing is. It seems to just be an issue these past couple of years ears for shows. I don't remember complaining about this. You know five six years ago so this is some sort of new filming that they're doing well. It's not good. I am not happy. All right. Speaking of goods or bads are uglies. Tell me your ugly ugly <hes> so my ugly is has been my good and my bad and my ugly at some point and it is the tapes. I don't know if this is good or bad. It's definitely ugly but everyone has seen everyone's tape and i feel like they're causing more problems than they're solving <hes> so of course the guy that captured dwight that's how he knew. Dwight soft spot <hes> the guy last episode who got his bike shot up. He was watching a tape. I mean they're intentionally leaving these tapes behind. Tell the story and it's it also seems like all the bad that comes from that you also have this kind of awkward thing where our a group doesn't really talk to each other like they should but they've all seen each other's tape so that's like well. How did you know that about me well. It was on your tape. You know like why why would you open up on the tape and not to your friends in the group. Just the tape seemed to be causing a lot of whoa. I i just i'm. I'm over the tapes. I've been over the tapes. I think yeah i i've i have been sick of al chasing chasing the quote unquote story for a really long time. I know you've been sick of that and i just i think the tapes are gonna wind up being a bad thing so i know they wanted convince every one of their do-gooder ways and everything but i just i feel like the tapes can be used against you by bad people so. I don't know if i'd be putting them out there. I don't know if i'd want mine out there. Well cult recruitment recruitment <unk> call you dad. You're in a cult. Would you like to know more. Ah so that was my ugly. What was yours so my ugly actually for the first time in a while was a a good ugly and i'm going to say that we got to see stuff. That made us the stuff. It is really the reason that we love the walking dead. We got to see glimpses of our survivors at their best. So i actually thought the white giving raleigh that second chance <hes> i thought that really nice gentle interaction that grace and morgan had with chuck when they found on him yeah. I really liked that with grace. Making the stars the lights newtalk then burying chuck and then i actually thought the ending between morgan ingraham's really touching although i know that it's gotten a lot of heat from people like paul tassie and eric so i just felt like we saw some things that reminded me why i love the walking dead because there are those soft heartfelt moments yeah and i get that this is why they're trying to do good. They really are trying to help people. They have helped some people. I mean they helped tests in her her son and you know they helped all of the kids and now they've done this good thing for chuck and i don't know maybe dwight got to that guy but i doubt it so willing to believe that he did he think he thinks all all of a sudden. He's just gonna turn coat and be like. I'm for the good guys now. I'm willing to believe that he did well. Maybe he'll be are featured cast asked member next do-gooder and stuff so any rotting potpourri corey you mean other than this was done on the dead the minor prequel right <hes> <hes> so you and i have actually joked about where we everyone jokes about their where they go and his own the apocalypse and of course our answers answers are always like cosco home depot and the gun store and you know one of mine is a veterinarian clinic because a lot of people are going to be reading hospit- ricky reiji are going to be rating the hospital urgent cares but not a whole lot of people are going to be. There's going to be like a competition for the veterinary clinics and they have one word ketamine here here. I was thinking antibiotics been again. I was asking you about appa quilt tonight from my headaches roach for those of you who don't know it's a doggy and to me yeah. Let's just be sure that no ather is taking apple qualifer. Their headaches not a good plan and i watched the wrong advertisement on t._v. Sometimes the signals get crossed. That's why i'm having my head checked but i you know they've done a lot of obama's to a lot of romero products and other things <hes> some tale now creepshow stuff and things like that but i i love the idea of holding up in a mall most malls else <hes> some malls. Maybe depends on how many windows there are facing outward. I guess but you know the small had a second story which the malls els in juneau do not so they were relatively protected. I think it was erica paul who pointed out that <hes> do samba. He's not know how to go up escalators. When the power's out it must have been eric so i thought that was funny because it was totally true that none of them have gotten upstairs in spite of how easily would have you know happened but you know and it's it's kind of hard to believe leave this point in the apocalypse that a mall wouldn't have been picked clean but i guess maybe there are some malls out there that you could still been standing <hes>. There's actually an outlet mall <hes> when whenever we go to vegas it's it's on the border of california and it's kind of far out of the way so i can kinda see. Maybe maybe people not being there era when stuff happens but there's road signs for for it everywhere i i can only imagine people driving along and be like hey. Let's go to the mall in restock. <hes> um so but yeah i do like the o. majdi to dawn of the dead so i will point out that the opening ending credits had the carousel and the music from the carousel which is creepy. I don't know why care are so music's. Creep actors too many lake horror movies instead of carousels in them. Now i'm gina you obviously have not watched american gods. I have the house on the rock. Oh yeah yeah yeah it has that really massive care salt yeah which is legit place ace by the way <hes>. I don't know if it really has a carousel but yes it is a legit place. We have the house on the rock and <hes> <hes> uh-huh. I was happy to see skid mark yes again. I think it's weird. He keeps them in the back of the truck. Yeah <hes> i agree. He's writing cab yeah. I also thought it was super. Funny daniel was like is there a cinnabon acidity acidity above that was great. I did love that <hes> this real places. I mean i know cinnabon is i'm assuming that because we are we live blighted lives and we live in alaska scott and don't see what the greater world has to offer there must be a sensiti and buttery somewhere interesting. I do wanna know how they get power discharge the ipod and don't tell me the generator okay and so if they did use the generator to power the ipod why the hell did he go around and turn off all the lights and wisdom os in the mall when he was was using the generator so it didn't suck the generator dry you mean right like let me just power this one room and this ipod which by the way thomas pointed out to me that she called the generator jenny which is of course the name of dwight's wife so he felt like there was kind of that reference to dwight's wife and dwight's wife making that last hurrah on the carousel with them together possible or not twice. I'm sorry dwayne her good lord morgan morgan morgan's wife is is that what you think maybe he kinda got. The opposite feels like us. He started. He started getting the fields but then he was like nope. Gotta gotta cut that off. I'm going to go see what else is doing so the point that paul tassie made in his article so i'm not making it original point here. I'm stealing is that basically he was shutting shutting down getting close to someone that he didn't wanna lose someone again. He's like okay. I get it like you don't want to get close to someone. We know that's gonna die so you're just going to leave that person to die alone with like these sort of half feelings of you ruined them and why you could be your way you couldn't like. I don't know definitely got the feeling that they were not going to see each other again. That's so sad god and it's meant to be. I just thought morgan was better than that yeah and again. That's the point that paul tassie made you. I know that that it the writing of this character is such that he's at the point where he's over morgan. He said i want to be really clear. It's not lennie james but i'm over the way that the writing morgan he's just he wants to reach out and help everybody but he doesn't wanna make any sort of meaningful connection. That makes no sense to me. Mhm i mean he started to make meaningful connection with alicia and then she's like. I got my own thing and so now he's just going to be like blowing everyone off like it was at the trigger i just yeah i don't know i think that being really pulled down into memories of jenny and dwayne and was the trigger yeah that could be but we also also do call our generators. Jenny's here <hes> that will that was what i thought i wouldn't. Thomas o'meara noticed what he called. The generator and i'm like a genuine his yeah i didn't. I didn't even compete with me because that's what we call generator series. Jenny's yeah that's funny. I did like as i said dwight and i really thought that there was a good balance balance between angry dwight and hopeful dwight. I thought he was pretty resolute and i just i enjoyed the way that austin. Amelia played the character during this episode. I enjoy austin amelio anyway and i really kinda like clean-shaven dwight. I was going to ask you what your feels feels about that. Were yeah like don't get me wrong. I love scruffy flake. I do little live in alaska. Of course. Most of our men are very scruffy and you know that's cool. We're into it but every once in a while it's like clean-shaven guys got going on. I'm not sure how i feel about clean-shaven light. It might be different if he wasn't clean-shaven scarred dwight but that is just so weird to see like i told you i've have watched the episode of him. Enormous norman redesign ride and h kissed. It's so surreal because that's not how i know him. It's like like it's like meeting. Someone like how he is white and then him getting plastic surgery to not be dwight like it's not like he was a regular guy and then he got it burned for me. He's burned and then he's a regular guy and it's very backwards and so i don't know like i <music>. I'm i was actually thinking this episode only as clean shaven. I was like you know he had made mention of his scars earlier to the guy who kidnapped him. <hes> <hes> he's like doesn't oke like i've been through worse and honestly for the most part. I don't even see the scars fermi. That's dwight. You know it's like i've had friends who have dropped a ton of weight have their body size and i don't really you see it because it's not it's that they weren't there wait. They're still them you know and so it's very hard for me to you know compute acute that something has changed. That's just them. I don't know when i think about it. It is hard for me to think of austin amelia uh-huh without the scars yeah yeah <hes> anything else in particular. I did not have a lot this episode this episode. I have one other thing so. I just really thought that raleigh's comments about sherry being good snatch were really gross really kind of out of character turf for walking dead yeah. They were a little bit shocking. I was a little taken aback. I agree. I'm not a prude by any stretch but that that was a little appalling yeah that was that's an that's probably one of the things that like the way he was talking and he was like oh maybe yoga. Oh go find myself. You know. I was just like this is not a guy. You're gonna convince you know <hes> no. There's it no helping this guy. I don't think that he's going to be making the crossover good guy town soon yeah. That was definitely yuck. Yeah definitely okay now. I don't think i have anything else but that really bothered me a lot and again not a prude but it just really bothered me yeah and so going back to what we were talking about earlier. <hes> <hes> the average human needs to two hundred and fifty words per minute but the average person speaks at approximately one hundred to one hundred hundred thirty words per minute very go so we speak lower than slower than we read. We read at twice the speed yep <hes> one more thing in this came from thomas. O'meara grace did finally ride that white stallion although i will point out as someone who's had horses that that there is no way dude ranch is going to try to put an eight year old girl honest stallion mustang. No i stay stallion. There's just no way no not unless the thing is like twenty three years old so you were taken out of the episode by okay. The candy beans peas. I was taken out of the episode by the really erroneous horse reference well when she's like when i was eight i really loved horses and i'm like what eight year old girl doesn't but again most dude ranches not gonna put an eight year old on a mustang mustang stallion no no we we start out with the old nag eight. That's funny our for it. I think i am done. It's interesting to me that finally we get to one that. I liked better than you. It is it is is my god. I'm going to go have to watch zombie tidal wave because it is out. It came out on the seventeenth all right. You'll have to tell me whether or not we're reviewing reviewing the yeah. It'll probably be on saturday because i'll probably spend my night drinking on friday and watching it well and so we have to decide side when we're podcasting preacher number three and that's very true <hes> so we won't be reviewing zombie tidal wave this weekend no but i did have some feedback about our meg episode and i think i told you this on the air that my friend find your voice sexy yes and now i'm going to be read again but he also wants us to do. Forty seven meters down caged. It's it's another shark movie. That's coming out our rights and there's another shark movie coming up with kristen stewart. Oh my god i know like the sharks. <unk> are the new zombie all right for him. We will do the forty seven meters down at some point yeah the forty seven meters stance. Actually it kind of seems like it's going to be a little bit better of a plotline but maybe the the other one christine suits. Probably we're gonna have better production value. I don't know i will probably watch both and let you know which one is suitable for podcast. This is the zombie shark network now right all right well. This is ambi- shark. Podcast is probably going to get this podcast up and do a little knitting before she goes to bed. This one's gonna obsessively check her dogs dogs in the backyard via. Hurrying hopefully have to use our bug out bag. That's my next thing so yeah so until next week. Stay out of the water. Don't get set on fire. Don't have your house broken needs to have your head checks and just remember take it. One dead day at a time have have a safe week. Everybody take care everybody by in toyota uh-huh.

Jim & Florence review Author JL Rothstein's book "Atonement" the first in the Heaven Sent Series

"Hi, this is L. Argh, rem. You know me as easy. No. Little House on the prairie and I'm talking to you now with Human Florence on the four. This is Jim Jackson welcome to the forum. Today is very special time because we love doing book reviews and there's a great book that is out that we really enjoy sharing with you and Florence is going to be doing the main review now to my partner, Florence Murray Florence I'm doing great Jim. How are you? I'm doing fantastic. This is a book that we really both enjoyed and we loved the energy in the positivity of it and the real excitement of it. It's Kinda. One of those that get you from start to finish and the book that we're talking about is a atonement. It's the first book and the Heavensent Series By author Jail Rothstein. And this is her first series. She actually is educated in creative writing and has a long history of sharing her talents with so many people fly twenty you think overall about this book. Well, I absolutely loved the book when I first heard about the theme, the Heaven and Hell theme being raised a Catholic girl. You always have that preconceived idea of what that book will be, what that story will be, and of course, it's been written about love her take on it, and if you believe in Guardian Angels and someone looking over you and fight between good and evil and good wins out in the end, I think you will really really enjoy this book. And a good Catholic girl as we we may add. But. With Jail Rothstein I think what I liked about it. Is it just really kind of blasted you reminded me of some of the movies that are out that the adventure films and some of the other ones that just kind of went after it and the women play a huge role in this and it's just a fun thing what is the premise of the book premise of the book is the main character Genevieve o'meara or o'mara has a lot inside of her if she goes through the journey of sorrow, this journey of anger journey of revenge over something that happened to her husband, which we don't want to give too much away but she goes on this path and what I love. About Jail Rothstein writing of this character and she really makes you feel all the trials and tribulations at this main character goes through and her family, and I feel that you really do get an understanding of what this woman goes through and sort of yourself. In that situation she does want revenge for what happened to her husband and she lets it all out that comes out and many different forms in many different ways. Again, it's a fight between good and evil, and she wants to protect all of humanity and in the end that's her goal, and again I love the writing. I love the descriptive writing I. When I was in high school, I took a lot of creative writing courses in. I took journalism and communication and a ton of writing courses. I absolutely love when characters especially a strong women character genevieve is written so beautifully so I absolutely overall love this book like I said I went into it wondering Oh, I wonder if it's going to be the typical. Versus Hell and all that but it's so much more. It's so much more and it's fantasy. It's a thriller. It's a lot of things rolled up into one. So I definitely think people are going to really enjoy skulk dink so too. It has familial base where shows your actions can affect your family, the things that you think and how they actually dictate what you do in certain situations and what I really also like about is the characters. There's a lot of different characters a lot of point of us in this and it's very open minded book where it doesn't really here's the good person. Here's the bad people it's very where it Kinda shows the different personalities, disinterested ease of some of the the characters, and it's very well written and it will grab you. It's kind of one of those books that grabs you from start to finish when you first. Start reading it. It's one of these. Oh, I'm GonNa all night or two or three days. I'm going to get this book done, but it's really an interesting book. It's a fun book action-packed lots of stuff happening. It will keep your attention span and it will be fun for you. I know there's a lot of books out there a little bit slow, but this one gets yet the star so cannot endorse this book enough again, it's a tone meant by jails Rothstein and it's the first book and the heavensent series get it at Amazon or wherever books are sold. I've tone by jail rosty. Route.

'cause I'm the KINDA YOU WANNA know why because it's Thursday that means Ralph sex university and we have a really fun topic. That's going to take your mind off your troubles. Good we need that we do we need. That's why I picked today's topic it's going to be a blast. Geraghty Dot Garin de and we've got the entertainment news. Got Your phone calls. We got us to so much magic in store. I'm excited to share it with you. So let's get the introductions out of the way I am your old podcast Pal Ralph garment and sitting here in the bat cave with me is the vice host himself. The man now who is flush with airborne he is everybody any. How did Tracy take area very happy. She was happier. Have we both have that airborne? Buzz going on good. She's happy we're all happy. Happy wife happy life exactly. Oh they tell me no. You didn't follow. That rule denied tried. What do I know all right before we get to the show itself? I did want to award for the second time this week. The Ralph report citizen of the wing. Yesterday I sort of facetiously gave it to that guy who said I look better now than I did years ago. Yes did you mean it? Really give it to him. I I well. I'd like to give it to anybody who thinks I'm better looking now. We're seeing years ago. A love to give that to someone now is sort of just joke. Obviously I was being facetious. However today's award is for real and usually we do the citizen the week in a in a pseudo mocking way. Sort of poke fun at people usually from Florida. Who has done something so heinous that? We can't help laugh. Yeah however today's award is genuine and you'll see why in a moment I let me. Yes predicate this by saying this comes on the heels of the announced yesterday that AMC movie chain just had furloughed six hundred of its corporate employees including the CEO. Really wow now look for. Low is better than fire. Yes but they're still what they're doing is they're saving. Money has no one is going to the movies. Obviously because they're shutdown right and that puts a numerical value on the people in just that one corporation whose lives have been detrimental detriment negatively daily effect affect this. This This outbreak and what? We're trying to do to flatten the curb as they say so. Yes six hundred corporate employees. Now that doesn't say anything about the folks who are actually ticket takers and and concessions and worker people. You normally see when you go to a movie theater right. Yes it's just the the upper echelon saluting the CEO. They're trying to cut some of the fat from the corporate on the corporal which I can absolutely appreciate it and I think more. Ceo should take no salary during this. And maybe try to pay. The hourly is the. Ceo's can weather the storm more times the not easily. But what about the folks were working in movie theaters? And that's what brings me to. Today's citizen of the we goes to mark o'meara mark o'meara is a Small time movie theater owner. He owns two theaters in Fairfax Virginia. Probably familiar with I agree. Yeah I've products county. He owns the university mall. Theater been there many times. These cinema arts theatre. I haven't been to that one. The University of Malaya Marco Mira is his name and he is own those two theaters for twenty nine years and he has managed to keep those doors open through snowstorms and financial downturns. And you name it. He's been able to keep those two operations running and this is the first time in twenty nine years. He's had to close his doors and he is not so concerned for himself but mark says I have a lot of kids working here that make a living on a shoe string and I can't pay that. Well he said they can't afford to lose more than one or two shifts a week and I don't know what to do so this is how big this guy's heart as he tried to figure out a way where could keep paying his staff. Even though theater wasn't opening a no customers were coming in. And this is the idea that mark came up with. He took inspiration from a nearby. Mcdonald's that was offering only takeout people would order their foods at McDonald's and then employees would run the food out to the car so he started selling last Wednesday curbside. Concessions Hawking large popcorn for three dollars. A pop that's great in the first forty five minutes. He sold twenty five dollars worth of popcorn and he says he's now averaging three hundred to four hundred dollars a day in concession stands of people who are just pulling into the parking lot. You call up the theater and he'll bring out popcorn candy. Whatever you want to bring in the House that's amazing to the car rather and he's using all those proceeds to continue to pay his staff while he says he's not sure if it'll be enough for him to cover his overhead costs but it's more important. In his opinion to keep paying. The salaries of the kids were taken the tickets and working behind the counter concession stand and the ushers at his two locations while he said he's already seen the impact of the TAT on his staff. Someone got her paycheck mark says and I was watching her. She took out a calculator from her purse. And she said yes. I can pay the rent. And he said that's what it's all about for me. Wow this guy has found a way not to protect himself necessarily but to show some responsibility for his employees in the kids that he cares about and does something got to help them through. Christ that's a great story. That's remarkable and truly worthy of praise. And that's why he is. Perhaps the first ever legitimate report citizen of the week all right. Now let's turn to you guys who are always the citizen of the week to me the beloved garment would love it when you keep showing up in a big way and how much you contribute so many ways you can reach out to where she can write his emails. Ralph at the Ralph Report Dot Com of course as my email address Eddie at the Ralph report. Dot Com Steve at the Ralph report DOT Com.

All you need to do is dial up that magic phone number one eight three three I love to hear from you guys listened to all of them and then I pick a handful of them. We put him here at the top of the show in a segment called gummy on. The line. Phone is ringing the Mesa. I knew it was just a matter of time. And it's killing me. But the covert nineteen virus is starting to affect members of our own community members of the garlic. Yeah Jeanette called in with this and I look as I said before. We have to kind of walk the line. We have to balance between how much we talk about the virus and the quarantine and many of us are going through and how much we just try to do silly stuff to take our minds off. But when I got this call from Jeanette it was important for me to share this with you guys. Hey Ralph is Janette from Long Beach. I've called a few times. Listen daily I'm calling to see if you can send them positive by prayers to sheet or whatever I actually got tested for Corona virus yesterday. I guess it takes around forty five days to get the response back which is crazy but I do have an autoimmune disorder so I have a few actually almost symptoms other than a fever But I have to suppress The headache the I have everything So yeah a little bit scary again because of my autoimmune disorder but just thinking down the road or keeping Mareo I do have a three year old and a five year old. So it's very scary time and trying to control my brain from going down the rabbit hole But it's obviously hard But yeah listening to your report you in any like. It definitely helps me get distress it. I'm working from home Chinese busy so that I don't my brain go fiction and go Yeah thank you Minute by relieve you to Jeanette and we are absolutely thinking of you. I am not a religious guy so Prayers are really not something I offer. Yeah it's not something that I really know much about. Good thoughts I send you all the positivity can muster and I'm sure every one of the members of the army who are listening right now is doing the same thing and if you'd like to share your email address with me or your twitter handle or our you'd like to get messages from people I would love to put that out into the world so that we could all be there for you and send you the best and even in the worst case scenario do what we can to to help out in any way that we can and and that goes for all the army members as this thing spirals out of control I'm I'm saddens me say I'm sure this isn't the last time we're gonNA hear members of the army. You're dealing with this stuff either testing anxiety or actually having contracted the virus and the again. I say many times. The best thing about this whole enterprise is the community that we have formed as as army and We're going to be there for you and we love you and we're thinking of pulling for you and please keep us posted. Let us know what's going on. Yes definitely all right Next up let's let's do a just a whiplash here from that story to this phone call only because so many people so many. I gotta say a third of the calls. I listened to were similar to this one so I just had to pause the show as I'm listening to Eddie's rant about bananas an ice cream going together I think that really needs to be turned to try and Eddie rants and play for that depend so Thanks you're not alone. Many people not only baffled by it is rejecting bananas and Ice Cream together but many people suggested that if we take it and we slow it down by half speed depends a man who's never had a drink before in his life but seems to sound like the drunk guy at the bar when you slow him down to touch and make it. Today's trunk thoughts closed off from your face. It's drunk caught five my teeth. You just said right. I like bananas had do. I like ice cream. So if you take to issue like and you put them together how can that equation possibly come out other than your Spaghetti in Rice krispies? But I don't mix them together. They're not they're indifferent. John was the bananas. Bananas not inherently go with ice cream. It's very deserved because of my order to the desert is all the freeze thaw thing. You mentioned yourself. Banana Pudding Banana Cream Pie. There's many you've got Apple Pie. Peach Pie all everything can be made into. I say Pie so drunkenly I it's awesome. Oh my God everyone else who called. It couldn't get to all your calls but there you go. Which fulfilled hey. Steve called in with an excellent point. Hey Ralph and Yoho Eddie this is Steve From Carpenter's Illinois calling longtime first time and I was listening to some old episodes and you guys are talking about Julius Caesar and Nagami thinking about the eyes of March and it occurred to me that the eyes of Mars this year bond Sunday which means we didn't get any of our vehicle fix so Ralph give me a favor any with a little bit of Do you all right. You've got Steve. You don't have to twist my arm for those who aren't familiar Ides of March was a band in the early nineteen seventies. That was a one hit. Wonder they had a song called vehicle. And that's basically what started. The one hit wonder thing on this show. This is before you joined it was it was march fifteenth. And I was talking about the ides of March and I played a little bit of that song and people are like. Oh my God has been forever since I heard that song. I've never heard of before but I love it and I said this would be cool to feature on the show. One hit wonders. And so that's how the whole idea came around but I don't think we played it since that's almost that's gotta be practically two years ago. So he goes Steve It. We did miss the ides of March this year. But we don't have to miss out on the band. The ides of March. It's a little bit of vehicle. The strange side interest. Sean on damage. Is that a good song. That's a good theme song to us. Seventy S COP show. Yeah absolutely is to be the theme song of Benson and Hedges Someday Thanks so much for that ideas the appreciate it. Give me a chance to play that. A Brian called in another one third of the phone calls. Were much like this one and it just warmed my heart.

You don't need to get greedy but at STU suggestion I took listen at it. Slowdown half speed to see if eddy would sound drunk while singing and I can't not play it.

Those English on This Day in Eighteen Twenty Future Mormon Church leader. Joseph Smith had his first vision in a wooded area in Manchester New York this according to Mormon Scholars Joseph. Smith's immoral had its first vision. Eddie this was the thing that started it all. Let me tell you a story about a boy. Joe Smith Okay. He's walking in the woods there in Manchester New York and he went for a walk just to pray about what church to join. Couldn't quite understand which wanted to do it. And then he said he fell into the grip of an evil power that nearly overcame him but at the last moment God the father and Jesus showed up and they hovered above him and they saved him from the evil and he said which church should I belong to guys and they said none because they all teach the wrong stuff dude and they set him on his path to start the Church of latter saints. Start Your own church. This was the beginning of the real deal meal. Make your own money this before. He found the gold plates in the DESERT MAGIC UNDERWEAR. Gunderman all that stuff. This was the white American. Jesus right the right. Yes yes blonde. Jesus so this was big day for the Mormons who man how God doesn't talk to anybody anymore seems like he talked to lots of people back in Biblical Times L. And they're trying to start stuff and even as late as the eighteen hundreds. He was talking to people. It doesn't seem to be showing much anymore. I just shows up in and toast and dogs buttonholes. Yeah Tory shows up talk anymore. Just appears and soup off his game. It really is just phoned in at this point. I use a burning Bush or something right about now. I can use the word. I'd like you to speak to me so much of an adult. Joseph Smith came out of the woods today and said Hey I was almost taken over by the devil but Jesus and God showed up and they said I need to start my own church tackling. Yeah all right Speaking of Mormons on this day in eighteen thirty another ten years later the book of Mormon was first published in Palmyra New York so a lot more celebrating a lot of stuff today. Good for them. On this day you know say but the eighteen hundreds Eddie ripe for invent on this day in eighteen forty five Joseph Francis from New York City patented the corrugated sheet iron. Lifeboat made a boat out of corrugated. Iron seems heavy. That's what I thought you said that's nuts that'll never float and sure enough. It did loaded because it was court you know. The corrugated like corrugated tin. You ever seen those. It's like a sheet of metal. But it's got those ray is in it. And that was that the air under that allowed at the float. Apparently that was part of it was so thin that even though it was medal it was light enough to be on and it was very useful because when they used lifeboats ships in particularly rocky areas these boats could make it into shore and survive whereas wooden was ahead. Give to it. Not because it would break apart. It was just made of stronger stuff to your boat would break apart as you hit rocky land if you're in a wooden boat. Oh I think I'm in the Middle Boat. No now that we would go through. The metal boat is because they were having problems with life is easier say them trying to get into shore from sinking ships and they would get off the ship and then as they got into rocky terrain near the shore. Those ship those Those boats would often break up. Gotcha this one didn't and it saved a lot of lives. Oh that's a good thing also in this day in eighteen forty five. The patent was awarded to what was called the adhesive medicated plaster. Which of course was the precursor of the modern band named because I used by musicians early. No no no idea whether called the guy made got you eighteen. Fifty nine was the first sighting of Vulcan. A PLANET THOUGHT TO ORBIT INSIDE Mercury turns out that doesn't exist.

This is in England invading when they were holding off in one thousand nine hundred ninety six. The very first lip reading tournament was held in America though that a lot of time on their hands in the twenties in America. Apparently all right see you see what I'm saying? Let's make this a sport tournament tournament in nineteen thirty seven spinach growers of Crystal City Texas erected. A statue to this fictional character for bonus points at it depends any guess as to which fictional character the statue in. Nineteen thirty seven in crystal city. Texas was Haapai. That's right Popeye. The sailorman they were thrilled because while a lot of communities across the United States had gone under the Great Depression Not Crystal City because they were the spinach capital of the world.

Kansas Spanish to feed their kids man. Good Stephanie for that good for that. Indeed in one thousand nine hundred forty five.

Points a polio. That's correct. The polio vaccine was announced on this day by Dr Jonas Salk by the way Jonas Salk never patented it really yes Journalist Edward R murrow asked him who owned the patent to the polio vaccine. And he said well the People. I would say there is no patent. Could you patent the sun? He just gave it away for free by the way the more people like the Prophet was made on the polio vaccine anymore. People like that. Yeah indeed in nineteen fifty five the US had a brand new number one song and it was shit really was it was The power of television made this song number one based on the Disneyland Show.

Ernie Ford recorded version. That peaked at number four in the top and wrong with people with nothing to play a fourth version singer. Mac wiseman reached number ten seriously so that song in the same year was on the same year. Fifty five different versions. Hit the top ten in one thousand nine fifty five we get out of nineteen fifty five. I have no idea but I would have taken somebody out. That was me Goddamn Song on the Radio.

Paul McCartney and his band wings released an album called wings at the speed of sound or album. I call the day. Paul stop trying because one of the songs off of this album is still in my opinion one of the worst songs. Nellie Paul McCartney's ever written but maybe ever written period knocking at Snyder meaning long adult anime not a song. Paul McCartney must have thought oh on the beach. I can just go around saying things that I say at the House and put music to see events of pizza deliveries asking the window. That's a song. It's not who I'm going to go mold alone volts. A little bit long. It's not a thing just announcing what changes that are happening. Isn't a Song Tao work harder damage? Nine hundred seventy seven speaking of music.

America almost lost its collective shit yesterday. Why might be saw this or not depends but net flicks was off line for about an hour? I didn't know that all man. Oh Not in these times. Can you imagine what would have happened? If medals went down on these times they were down for about an hour in the northeast southern California Pacific Northwest and Texas. Lotta people in those areas reported problems. Logging on forty-one percent saying they receiving a no connection error. They couldn't get into net flicks. They say why. Say why they said it was just a problem at their hub. There whatever their deleo is wherever they send their magic from there at the Magic Castle where they all work and they Got Into it and they started working on in about an hour later they were able to restore service but people were getting legitimately panicked national disaster. How can I stay inside without? The tightening without tiger cannot live. That's all the rage these days. Are you watching tiger? I haven't seen it yet. I keep get. Outta my house I took out of my goddamn how for the show. All Eve always do. It is the greatest. I've heard I've ever seen I heard it's like a car crash. You can't stop watching. It's beyond that it's it's the greatest thing I've ever seen. It's the best television I've ever watched I will. I've been I have to watch. Eric keeps telling me to watch it. If you're not familiar. With what Tiger King is a brand new documentary limited series on Netflix and it is about the magical world of people who deal in exotic animals. Yes largely this one. Guy Joe Exotic real name now. I'm kidding relent. But that's what he goes by. Who is called the self-appointed Tiger King? And he's got a personal zoo in Oklahoma cheeses. And then you meet the other characters in his life like doc earl or whatever. His name is who does the same thing but in a different part of the country but he runs a cult and he's got all these young girls who tend to zoo form that he also has sex with Mike God and he's also a Yogi master was raise raised by a Yogi or wrong elephants and stuff. And you think okay. This is the nuttiest person I've ever seen. Then they introduce the animal rights activists who is going after them whose best friend when she was a child were to invisible cats. Suck it it you. You think you're watching something that has to be scripted because there's no way it could be. Otherwise Wow Joe. Exotic is a mullet wearing gun toting gay redneck with several husbands on zoo. It's your midst too much which when your mind is exploded the pieces of your mind that have exploded then explode and it's exponential. It's I burn through about half of it this week and I'm just I'm I want this to be over so badly so I can go back to watching it. I'm going to have to start watching on the boys and girls. If you've got the net flicks do yourself a favor in the dark times and disappear inside Tiger King. I don't know ten episodes or whatever it doesn't make you feel worse about humanity. No I specifically subset of humanity. But it's also a fascinating look into a world that you never knew existed but everyone who seems to be dealing in exotic and rare animals seems to be a deeply flawed human being and there are no good people in this. Don't get me wrong. There's nobody to root hero. This is just an expose of Shit tastic humanity and I love it so much. A Joe runs for president. Oh he does yes. He runs for the governorship of Oklahoma as well. He's got his campaign manager. Is The guy that used to sell him ammunition at the Walmart Horse the guy. He taps to be his bud like Christopher guest dropped a ton of acid and then came out with these characters and did one of his famous Mockumentaries real scary. It's so wonderful all right.

And there they were Bob and Doug Mckenzie A. painted Rask statue of the two of them sitting on the couch and they're famous positions. No one was there. Maybe it's appropriate for them. I suppose and they're sitting much closer than they should and everybody was saying well. It's just like those guys to violate the Six feet order speaking of corona virus and celebrities.

Hi this is an emergency transition if you're seeing this. The Tatas must have detected an upsurge in psychological signals from somewhere in space and time. Basically I think somebody somewhere might be a little bit worried. How much is yourself isolating or as I like to call it hiding from an army of some tolerance but keep out see south now? Here's what I do in any worrying situation. Remember you will get through this and things will be alright. Even if they look uncertain. Even if you're worried darkness never prevails. She's damn charming so doctor. Who told US DOG GOING TO BE? It's going to be fine and doctor who can go back and forth through time. She must have seen she knows how it works out some sad news.

I thought booked for today. but You know probably my fault. I had it in here. I I never got back to follow up reconfirm it when I realized I didn't have a phone number for the guest. I emailed him like. Are we still on for ten. Oh no I'm so sorry I should have gotten back to you and let you know that we couldn't fit it in for today really. This is a a publicist. I would be one thing if I'm talking to the person an author and they you know but this is a publicist who gets paid to do this shit so I actually have a couple of interviews in the can as they say it was from over the holidays holidays when we climbed was on vacation and he hooked me up with a few of the candidates that Blue America has endorsed. And I still have a couple that I didn't air so so we've got that ready to go if I need it. The phone lines are open. Nine five four eight eight nine six four one is the number.

He's an election issues lawyer so this is what he he deals with election law and I really wanted to talk to him about what the fuck happened in Iowa because it's a travesty. So he'll be on in a few weeks you you know he's got to do all the big shows I I get it I get it I want to share with you though. A piece Davide just wrote over at the American prospect where he's now editor in chief and the headline reads Tom. Perez should resign preferably today. But I'll tell you what I'm going to start today. We're going to do things a little backwards We're going to start with an interview. Then I recorded when how over the holidays and Home Anyway so the California primaries coming up super for Tuesday march third and Liam o'meara. Oh somebody's calling. I don't know the historic call right. Now let's try. Hi Who's this. This is Roger in Minneapolis. The Apple Louis. Hey Roger in Minneapolis. How are things there Well There unseasonably warm. We've had AH unusually warm winter here But that makes things dangerously icy and I can I can write a book talk about Sun with falling down and getting concussion. Yep Are you enjoying even though it's it's GonNa be you know it's bringing about the end of the planet. Are you enjoying the warm weather in February seventh. Well I have to say that Global warming has been clearly noticeable here since the early nineties very clearly noticeable and it has made. I'm living in Minnesota overall a bit easier. I must say but I have a certain sense of foreboding about it. No doubt But what what about Fun Living in newly fascist enabling act of the day before yesterday America and you want. Yeah I mean this is it this is. We're witnessing the end of the republic because we couldn't keep it we are witnessing the takeover of this in this country by a guy who is just the most horrific excuse for a human being the man has no decency about about him. There's nothing there's not one redeeming quality I can say about Donald Trump. Can you can you come up with one. Good thing to say about the man. Well you know I I honestly most definitely And not ought and It's kind of a horrifying test to me because I really believe in the intrinsic uh-huh goodness of people and of the inherent possibility in us to learn to live Wofford and share our and You know I was absolutely horrified. When Ronald Reagan was elected I could not I mean it was just I was just you and moral? That was that was my twenty first birthday. He was elected on my twenty first birthday. And well you know. My birthday is November number. Four th so it would be nice if the world if the country gave me a nice birthday gift and voted trump out of office somehow with each passing day. I see that as lessened less likely. Well I had the experience of having repeated dreams Back in the early eighties after Reagan became President And as heartless as so many things things he was doing was and I was getting also recurring dreams of nuclear war and all kinds of stuff. I had a series of repetitive. If Dreams in which I met Ronald Reagan in my and he started crying and talking about his childhood and how how unloved by his mother and stuff and I realized inside of my heart reflecting on the meaning of that dream was that underneath. The absolute horror was a very injured person in Ronald Reagan. I'm afraid I see anything like that. In trump he is something else and the question that I let's not forget. He's just ahead of the snake or the rattler of the snakes and a and a- and he represents a an inherent systemic problem that we have people willing to be Dina folic an attempt to blame and lay off their pills on others. Yeah we've soon demagogues we've seen demagogues push things very far in the past. Trump just had US ebeling asked in the form of this so-called equival and I am not sure how far this country is going to allow this guy to go at this point. It looks like maybe all stops are off. I don't know what do you think I don't know I just know where we're not in a good place and if we by we I mean you and me and everybody listening and anybody with conscience in this country if we don't step up to turn things around onto your to get that criminal conman out of office to make sure we elect a decent human being. Then we're we're we're lost that this experiment server we have no future we have no fucking future. Well here's here's a very strange stop. It has occurred to me as vehemently as I was. Opposed to seeing Romney become elected president in two thousand twelve As vehemently as I opposed to that And his talking about the forty seven percents that. We're just takers. is to his little private club and you know reform and carry his car his his. I mean the guy is Got Major issues issues. Check this out. Here's an idea now. I sincerely think that we are poised to see if we can keep the republic alive. I think that we will have a president sanders and possibly a vice president war and now in the in the near future. But what about this. What if Romney started to run against against trump? Please don't gay should turnouts it today. He should announce his challenge to day. I don't I don't know what he's waiting for. Joe Walsh up on his I think so. Too Joe Walsh by the way who who is not a character that I could have ever support it because we know what Joe Walsh is. I'm glad he became a never-trumper but he's still Joe Walsh. He dropped out. He ended his his presidential bid today. Not that it was ever anything but a publicity stunt for him but Mitt. Romney could actually do something here. I think that Romney show signs of being table to learn. And some of these right wingers are able learn and and right now we need to get this orange menace off our necks and I think we need to start movement to Beg Romney to Rod. Well the you know what that's where we part company because look I I'm I'm in the business of trying to get Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren elected but the Republicans should be screaming. All those Goddamn never trumpers that insist on invading my television set invading the so-called democratic answer to Fox which it isn't but they've taken over MSNBC so it is now the never trumper channel. Let them do it they should. It's their party. Let them get a reasonable person. Probably the only one left holding elected office on the Republican side. They should be the ones telling him to get in the race and run. We need to worry about getting Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth. Warren elected preferably bulk up. I absolutely agree with that. But let's let's let's put the call out to our Republican Potential so Semi allies to please draft Romney. Yeah that's what I think it would make it. More difficult for Sanders is to win the presidency. If he won the nomination and Romney became the nominee but we still would solve our greatest menace. I Yup yeah at this point you know I. I've always been anyone over trump. I would take my dog. Jackson is president over trump. Because like not Jackson would make better decisions just saying well. Well the part of the challenge we face is maintaining our own individual coherence in the face of this baffling. It's raining experienced. That we're we're we're experiencing here sure and humankind has seen a problem similar to this in the past In in in Nineteen in the nineteen thirties thirties in Germany and obviously didn't respond very well. Are we as NEAT. And as Tau who fly hour by hour we are since obviously obviously look at what we've let Donald Trump get away with. Obviously we don't have strong enough on the democratic side to stand up to his bullshit and we're not. Why the fuck aren't we in the streets? You know what I'm GonNa Roger. I'm GonNa let you go I'm GONNA play. I'm not GonNa read today's what's News I'm GonNa play for you the extended version. Because I'll tell you it took me hours. Say Thank you for calling Roger. I really appreciate it because I needed someone to talk to you today but one are recorded. What's news this morning? It took me longer than usual Mostly because there was so much that I needed needed to kind of piece together like a puzzle and there's so much going on and it's so fucking depressing but that said I I did put it together for you and yet it does all come together and and if you've never listened to a what's news I ask you to please listen. Tonight's also one of the things that has me so upset because I'm realizing the enormity of this situation were and it is urgent it we are. We are past the point of urgency. See we are we are at such a A you know a make or break time or history. Where if we don't step up in and do the right thing and fix things and get this dictator? This megalomaniac this mental midget I I know midgets not politically correct. But it's the only way I can describe him right now if we don't do something to get him out of office to get the Republican Party already of today shaken loose from this weird mind control that he's got over them Where we're fucked forever? I mean we really are this country you know. Donald trump is trolling us by posting a video he posted posted a video after the acquittal. That shows him running for office trump. Twenty Twenty eight twenty thirty to twenty forty well into the future. He knows it gets US crazy. And so that's why he does it even more. If by some chance he happened across this video and some e crying. He Laugh House off because they thinks it's hysterical. This is what he wants. He wants people to be miserable. Let me change that. People who are not in his camp because to Juno that in the United States of America in the year twenty twenty apparently we it is illegal to have thoughts against the president if you are not a supporter of his. You're you'RE GONNA be drummed out of the party you're GONNA be drummed out of government your head will be on a pike and they'll scream bloody murder if you dare say that they said your head will be on a pike hike but then I go ahead and put Mitt Romney's on a fucking bike so anyway what do we do. We need to take to the streets. So I implore you today. Today's what's news segment runs just under nine minutes minutes and well you'll see the puzzle fits together have a listen news. It's time for New Coal Sandler's what's news from Nicole Sandler Dot Com and the progressive voices network the results of the Iowa to a Caucasus or now in at one hundred percent and the Associated Press still can't declare a winner when most of the outstanding data came in on Thursday and overwhelmingly benefited the Sanders campaign the ineffective DNC chairman. Tom Perez called for a complete re canvassing of the caucus. The the timing appeared problematic from any of sanders supporters. There were potential errors and inconsistencies spotted in at least dozens of the estates. Seventeen hundred eleven precincts what happens next. Your guest is as good as mine in the wake of his acquittal by by the Senate Donald Trump is acting like an emboldened dictator. His first stop. Wednesday was the national prayer breakfast where he waved around copies of the Washington Post with headline acquitted but he used the historically nonpartisan event to go hyper partisan and completely mad. I don't like people who use their faith as justification for doing what they know is wrong wrong nor do I like people who say I pray for you when they know that that's not so. Of course. Trump was referencing. Both Mitt Romney who invoked his religious beliefs one explaining his decision to vote for trump's conviction and removal. The allegations nations made in the articles of impeachment are very serious as a senator juror. I swore an oath before God to exercise impartial justice. I am profoundly religious. My faith is at the heart of who I am I taken oath before God as enormously consequential I knew from the outset that being tasked with judging the president the leader of my own party would be the most difficult decision I have ever faced. I was not wrong and to use the national prayer breakfast to insinuate that the speaker of the house was lying lying when she said she praised for the president at tour up a manifesto of Miss Truce. It very hard for us to get you to talk about the issues that we are working the on. HR three infrastructure and the rest. He misrepresented all that was necessary. Sorry to get the attention of the American people. Say This is not true and this is how it affects. You and I don't need any lessons from anybody. The president of the United States about dignity dignity. Is it okay to start saying four more years in the House of Representatives. It's just unheard of unheard of for the president to insult people there who don't share his view as well as is to misrepresent present falsehoods. Some would use the word lie. I don't like to use About what he is saying so no I think it was completely entirely appropriate and considering some of the other exuberance is within the courteous thing to do well then it was onto the celebration his word in the East Room of the White House speaking from the same location where Barack Obama solemnly announced the death of Osama bin Wadan trump methodically called out some of the courageous Americans. who were everything by coming forward to speak the truth about what they knew including lieutenant? Colonel Alexander Linemen that National Security Council aide who testified during the house impeachment hearings and late Thursday night we learned that Vin men and will soon be informed that he's being reassigned from the White House to a position at the Department of Defense could happen as early as Friday and if trump's attacks on them at the prayer breakfast wasn't enough he doubled down in front of an even friendlier audience in the White House. East Room by calling speaker. Nancy Pelosi acquitted horrible person and derided Senator Mitt Romney as a flip flopping Republican with new sign of Principles whose whose vote to convict trump according to trump was born not out of principle but bitterness over his failed twenty twelve presidential bid. It should be noted that in nineteen ninety nine after Bill Clinton was acquitted by the Senate on impeachment charges. He spoke for ten minutes in the Rose Garden. We're he apologized to the American people for what he'd put the nation through there was no apology. Thursday from trump. who suggested the country should be grateful? He he was willing to thwart what he called. Tremendous corruption evil dirty cops that was referenced to James Comey and dirty politics which she blamed on Speaker Nancy. Pelosi Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and democratic investigators. And if you think it's going to be business as usual you're you're probably wrong. It's now trump's Republican party where his Treasury Department under the leadership of his guys. Steve Mnuchin who has continuously continuously refused to hand over any of Donald Trump's tax returns has already given congressional Republicans sensitive financial information mation related to Hunter Biden. And that's not even the worst of it. The Department of Justice led by Attorney General Bill Bar. You know. Donald Trump's own personal roy Cohn announced a new policy on Wednesday regarding politically sensitive investigations. The Reader's Digest version of the new policy announced by the way in in a memo that the FBI and all other divisions under the department's purview. Must I get bill bars approval before investigating instigating any of the twenty twenty presidential candidates. Nothing to be concerned about their right. Right right Oh and one more bit of breaking news as we go to press the. US Court of Appeals for the DC circuit Friday morning unanimously dismissed. A lawsuit filed by more than two hundred Democrats in Congress seeking to enforce the Constitution's anti-corruption emoluments provision. Listen according to the unsigned order. From the judges quote the members can and likely will continue to use their weighty voices to make their case to the American people their colleagues eggs in Congress and the president himself all of whom are free to engage that argument as they see fit but we will not indeed. We cannot participate in this debate. What see the twelve page opinion points to pass Supreme Court decisions which the judges said do not permit individual will lawmakers to bring lawsuits on behalf of the entire body in part because Congress acts through majority votes in the House and Senate So this dismissal comes on the heels of a new Washington Post report that details. The massive rates charged by trump's various properties for secret service lodging for instance billing tax payers at rates his highest six hundred fifty dollars a night at more lago dozens of times in two thousand seventeen gene and a lower rate of three ninety six dozens of more times in two thousand eighteen and at the trump national golf club in Bedminster Minster. The secret service was charged. Seventeen thousand dollars a month a month to use a three bedroom cottage on the property. Yes yes that is an unusually high rent for homes in that area. According to receipts from twenty seventeen and trump's company build the government even for days when trump wasn't went there but congress lacked standing to bring an emoluments case to court Angela. Bill Bar has to personally sign off on any investigations of any of the twenty twenty presidential candidates. This all leads me to ask. When do we take to the streets seriously? When when do we stand up and stop the madness? And that's it for what's news today. I'm Nicole Sampler if you appreciate associate these reports and the Nicole Sandler show. I hope you'll consider making a contribution. It's what keeps me going and allows me to do this. Work find out more Nicole. Sandler DOT DOT COM and one year there. Please click on that donate button so that was today's what's news. You see him all crazy today took me hours to get that out but look look at all the shit that's coming together. And Donald Trump continues to gaslight America so we do need to take to the streets but you know what when when the the groups that lead the protests from the women's march to move on who put together these little papa protests. You know I go down to the ones here. I live in south Florida. The protests they have down here are all at the Federal Federal Building in Fort. Lauderdale where we're permited. You're allowed to protest. They are so. It's on a corner of Broward Boulevard and I don't know downtown Fort Lauderdale Tail and you know depending on the issue and the day and that would lead time there is it pulls in. Oh seventy two. A two hundred people in South Florida in Broward County one of the bluest counties in the country certainly certainly the bluest in the state and they can't break really two hundred that's if they got two hundred people out there that's a lot people down Outta here apathetic. I always put it off while that's Florida it's apathy but it's everywhere we should look. I look at other countries. Look at what went on in Hong Kong for months and months within months thousands hundreds of thousands of people in the streets if we can't even get our shit together to do that to come out and protest test. This madman this this this guy who's suffering from dementia who I fully expect to have a massive coronary one. One day when he's in the middle of one of his Nuremburg rallies if we can't get together to protest one of the most heinous excuses for human being ever to emanate from this land who now inexplicably became president of the United States. And and we wonder why I'm losing my mind Francis still protesting. You're right other countries can do it. Why don't we now? I could go out street. Here in Coral Springs Ritz. A this is a you know a suburb of Fort Lauderdale on the edge of the everglades people would just look at me like come crazy some my join me but not enough to make. Maybe it's because we're so spread out you know we're big protests happen New York City city because everything's concentrated on that small island and you get many many many thousands of people out at once. We need to do that. Everywhere especially at the polls November third. This is it. This is our last chance to take back the country. This is our last chance to turn things around. This is our last chance to rid our government government of these Republicans who would vote not guilty on Donald Trump after all this evidence and who would say no to somebody nobody else who worked in the administration who was in the room when it happened to testify. Now we don't need to hear from John Bolton now oh this is it. It's all hands on Deck Dong and if we can't get our shit together November third. I guess we deserve Donald Trump. Maybe we could all go out with one toast to Jim Jones. DRINK KOOL aid. Say Goodbye because honestly if he wins reelection I'm not sure that I have any other recourse so let's elect great candidates and that's what I'm going to do for the rest most of the program today. I I have a couple of interview still in the can as they say and we are coming up on Super Tuesday on March third word. California is would of those states and A couple of weeks ago. We'll over the holidays got to speak with Liam o'meara Liam o'meara is running for Congress from the forty eighth district of California. He'll tell you where that is and all that in the in the interview if you're watching on youtube what you'll see is a picture of him on the screen and yes those are braids coming down from his beard really. What you don't see on the picture is the picture from the back where his hair is as long as those two braids coming off his beard? I did ask him about it. I did ask him. We'll get to it all right. So you're what let's not wait any longer let me introduce you to Liam Amarah candidate for Congress Congress from California writes with us on the line now is Liam o'meara. He's running for Congress from California's. Forty second congressional district lamb. Thank you so much for being with us today We're meeting because of how he klein who is a dear friend of mine who is is a regular on my program every Thursday talking politics and how we along with digby and John Motto of Quicksand Liars Run the Blue America Erica pack and my regular listeners. Know all about Blue America but for those who are unfamiliar. It's They are. It's a pack. Unlike any other that I know oh of in basically they exist to identify and help raise money for real progressive candidates for Congress Congress and so How he said to me Nicole you gotta meet Liam o'meara and so thus our conversation so thank you so much for being with us today? Oh It's my pleasure entirely And I'm quite grateful with things like America exists because of the difficulty raising money for progressive candidates. You know a lot of the establishment sources just have no interest whatsoever. So it's a lot harder to amplify your message and you pick up attention. Yup Of course first of all tell tell us about the district California's forty second your East of Los Angeles. Yes in southwest Riverside County so Just east of both Los Angeles and Orange County just over the mouse and Orange County. It's been represented for over twenty seven years now by Ken. Calvert sort Who took the seat from a Democrat and has been helping it as the Republican All that time. It's it's kind of a ridiculous amount of time realistically ninety two was my first actual election and that's the year he won. Wow if historically written off as a conservative district and unwinnable unwinnable by Democrats which means that people tend not to invest in it. But it's one of only three remaining Republican seats in southern California and of the three three remaining seats demographically. It is the closest to flippable and with the right messaging. I think already is flippable because there's a lot of things that are generally ignored there. If you can't raise the money or attention or really pick the right kind of strategy. So I spent a lot of time thinking about the district doing research on you know what has been done before. What could be done differently before I decided to take established right and and the district encompasses pillay says like if an tell me if I'm mistaken but like Temecula and like Elsinore that area right he does? Yes so it starts up in the north in East fail so east failed. NORCAL ORCA in Corona and then runs down to fifteen freeway on the way to the northern part of Temecula There's only about Somewhere between a quarter and a fifth of the city of Temecula Akilah is in the district but the entire make the wine country in the Dotson. I they decided to divide the city. I spent a very long week in the hospital after I was at Murrieta hot springs and Something got me that. Probably I had ingested before he ever got out there. So I don't want to cast aspersions on myriad hot springs. It was beautiful but I wound up in the hospital with a really nasty infection for a week. This is back in the early nineties. But that's my memory of being in your district so but they took very good care of me so I will say that so Liam era. I'm ungloved took care of you. Yes they did they did. It was a hell of an experience though. Are there other other other. Democrats running in the primary are. Do you have competition. Listen there is one other She was She jumped little later And is running as what she calls a pragmatic matic progressive meaning. She's a thorough going centrists defending CEO things like that I mean it's It's an unusual whoa campaign in that. She's not really invested in the grass roots and has focused much more on just tweeting So there's not much I can say about it because there's there's not much happening there right okay. But you're out in the community again. You got the endorsement of Blue America and Thus our meeting here so tell tell us a a little bit about yourself first venture into politics. Yes you're you're historian. I'm enduring it's my. It's my first Sustained Venture incher into elective politics. I had put together a little committee to try and take a stab at this from twenty eighteen but You have a candidate the rent in two thousand eighteen minutes to announce I and and I know the. The district has a hard time raising funds. So I vowed out that December around I jumped in right away at the end of January Intent on trying to secure sure denomination and stopping. What happened last time? I am a historian. I'm my main areas of focus. Our cultural history of the Middle East in in Europe and I focused a lot like globalization and the movement if ideas and transmission over time so philosophies religions politics economics so I'm only my like my classes are heavily political but I never really thought of myself as you know the the standard bearer of a campaign like the face of the campaign so this is an unusual in experience for me. So what made you decide to to run. What what what was it? was there one thing or was it a just build up over time. What did it I guess I would call the build up over time. There's there's two key issues Two ways to answer that question the first is if someone says why. Are you running. Well it's the kind of things that you know your listeners. Already aware of the the slow decline of the middle class rising poverty in this country declining living standards. I mean there's a whole litany of things that infuriate every eight me about our current political direction to say nothing of the slow rise up the neo-fascism the last few decades But as as far as actually being a candidate myself the thing that pushed me over was looking at just how both the trump and sanders campaigns pains played out because in different ways. I think that they struck a chord because of a perception of plus anticipating. They seem to me you just who they are And they both ran as populous. You know right and left populist trump's case the disingenuous one but they both spoke to working class last issues and they both did not fit the typical scripted appearance of a politician. And I know as an educator last does murals I mean millennial and Gen students do tend to talk about Arthur Kissy as being very important Since real estate don't trust politicians. There they have a kind of cynicism towards them and unlike a lot of the The extras who were similarly cynical about politics they or politically engaged. They do care a lot about the political system. They just don't trust the politicians. Some idea is a to kind of capitalize on that. Well I am who I am. I'm not going to listen to focus groups about you. Know what I'm supposed to engage directly with people talk to them. I'm talking about the issues that are important. And if that's appealing then it's an option for people right okay and in terms of authenticity. I guess I'd be remiss miss if I didn't bring up and you address it on your website Leeann Liam o'meara dot org. You don't look like your typical politician. Certainly not your typical Washington politician. You've got a rather long hair you have braids and you have a big beard. And that's braided as well. Yeah exactly and there was a conscious decision In the process of putting together the campaign. Do I you know should at least trim the beard down to be shorter. I mean I. I used to wear a shorter beard. I mean I without like eight years ago or something like that but you know I used to be fairly short. You know it was Never GonNa Shave politics. But it didn't have the longer I like the idea. What is it? It's been there for years. It's something that I quite like and to take off with seem sort of disingenuous it would seem like I'm changing who I am for politics and I don't see that people should have to do that. It doesn't make sense. I would rather be judged on the content of my character and my ideas then on my face Do you do you get my first century. We can get that right. Do Do you get questions from potential constituents about about it. It's honestly very rare and then a surprise to me I'm sure it comes up. People's thoughts more often than it comes up in. Their questions is or statements even amongst each other because a lot of people that that you know described discussions about these things like this. It's it's only ever come up with the oldest voters voters honestly until younger. Voters frequently cited as an advantage to them because it does send a visual signal. I don't give a damn And that I am going you I am all right well that works Liam o'meara is with US L. I. A. M. O. M. A. R. A. Dot Org Liam o'meara as dot org the website Lots of information on here and I always appreciate it. When candidates put their stances on issues on the website? You can always tell tell those who well maybe are ashamed of where they stand on certain issues because so many candidates do not have have that kind of information nation on their websites. It's always a dead giveaway that this is probably as someone maybe can't trust but you put it all out there. What what are and I? I hate this question but I have have to ask it anyway. What are the most important? 'cause they're all important but what are there any issues at standout to you a Mu- above the others that it's like this is something I really want to tackle. Is that what the question is one of the things that my exist I mean I do come at this. As an academic so a lot of things are important to me First off I want to comment on the The issue with the website brought it up It it does that. Stand out to me that a lot of people do not bother to define a lot of their position. I advanced and I think much of that is so that they give themselves wiggle room. They can change their positions. They can change their ideas as they go along and that honestly offends me a bit. It's one of the things that I'm trying to push back against in terms of you know my presentation as a candidate. I'm GONNA lay out. These are my positions. I'm willing to discuss them. I'm willing to to argue them and and talk about them but I'm not going to like change them based upon what a particular poll set. That's not the point keeps. Getting elected isn't the point. The point is having the ideas one one change right. There's that okay let's see Far as top issues. Where would Chicago from that The the Cubans from me with all in some way or other tie into the The Economic Foundation so Symbol symbol Shift toward what you can call tax fairness or progressive taxation model. People tend to forget that. That's actually what helped to build the middle class because it creates creates an incentive for higher wages for workers if you lower the taxes on the rich then there's an incentive within the business to increase the compensation packages talk. They get to choose to pay themselves. You know just straight jonquil Sam wipe out there doing it so they would pay lower salaries themselves. It's not like they didn't get rich. We created a lot of millionaires in the fifties and sixties. You're going from twenty five to fifty times the average worker to two hundred and fifty to three hundred fifty times the average worker which just absolutely insane and a lot of other policy areas could be addressed if you can address that when I so agree new deals else. Investing heavily in the technologies that we're going to meet in order to adapt with changing worlds. Whether or not someone wants to argue Blah Blah Blah but caused. Oh it's different. Scientists pretty clear on but people still WANNA fight over that. That's fine. Have that discussion. Not My business. I want to do something about it and that does involves investing and I think that Especially for my area and kitchen in terms of the way that it can create jobs and increase American innovation. Shing I point to things like we used to be the leader in solar cell and battery. Technology means Jimmy. Carter put solar cells on top of the White House and Reagan took them off and now China is the world leader in both and if you can tell them look at the advantage week on. How did the space race through investments Medicare is another issue? You for me. It comes up. It's a typical progressive issue. But you might district to focus on the arguments a little differently. I think one of the key factors in me deciding to run is an awareness of of how framing works of how you can message ideas differently Progressives and liberals tend to talk about things like universal health care Medicare single payer whatever as a moral issue a moral imperative. It makes no sense to leave so many people behind sick and whatnot here medical banquets etc.. I pointed out here is simply the fact that they will put cash in your pocket. You know whether or not okay thinking about the people who often object to it while I get great coverage for my my employer unhappy with my employers Healthcare package like okay. Great Your employers he's being overcharged so if your employer no longer have to pay through the nose for your package that money is already in your compensation which means you get a race. Ace right Medicare for all would be the largest increase in salary for the middle class in a generation it'd be a massive payroll. Yes so if I tell people I can put ten thousand dollars a year while your money your money that you earn and that's Kinda powerful to a lot of conservatives because they hate taxes right So I try to like a shift the ground on that a little bit. You're already being overtaxed. I'm trying to lower your burden and lower your cost of living right. No I mean it makes sense. You said it. It's mind blowing. That people won't get that or that they don't get it yet and I think part of that. Is You know this disinformation campaign run by the right. where the the nation's been gas lighted for so long on so many things that you know when you lay out facts people you know? People don't believe facts. They believe stuff that comes out of the mouth of Donald Trump or out of Fox so-called new and it's a battle to okay wait a minute. Facts are facts. You know this is what you can trust that you can't and it we're in this weird sort of post truth breath era. It seems right now. So it's hard to cut through when you lay out the facts that so many people won't just won't take them. Ms Fact Yeah and this is one of the things that terrifies me. I mean the economics is enough of a reason for me to want to get involved in politics but quite another and one. That don't generally talk much about is. What Am I? Areas of of academic expertise. One of the things that I've studied a lot is The the fascist movements and national the movement of the development of those things. Not just in the you know the Twenties Thirties and whatnot and certainly not in just the the ones that everyone's heard of no when people point went to this like trump is Hitler. No He's I mean there were. There were dozens of fascist leaders and people always leave. They leave out. How are they leave out? Talk to us. They don't you don't talk about it. We don't really acknowledge the fact that's got approach to politics never went away. It is consistently evolved the rain dozens of regimes all around the world in Africa. Latin America is just today in places like Turkey and Russia and the steady infiltration an owner of that kind of that approach to politics. That emotive approach tells you not to think mean fascism. It is anti rational by its nature it tries to build a sense of like a collective belonging there. Let's let's wear the same things and let's go the rallies and that's the leader and let's listen to what the leader says and not really think about things and that's actually really appealing to a lot of people in a psychological level which makes it dangerous for a republic right. Well let me ask you this then. Leeann Loemaa again is our guest. He's a candidate for for the Democratic nomination for Congress from California's forty second district As we discussed earlier you are a historian. You're a college professor professor so you teach this stuff. So given your knowledge of history of world history seeing Donald Trump and how he interacts with other authoritarian Orient figures around the world given his propensity for It seems like has his need to cozy up to people like from Putin into Wan To do tear today to Kim Jong Hoon. What is this tell you about him? And and the the rallies he holds I I sort of flippantly referred to as Nuremburg rallies. Does this give you pause. Does it frighten you as it does me. It honestly terrifies me and and you're right to make that kind of parallel it's Except that the fact that when we think of Nuremberg we're thinking of particular You know archetypal events I and these are just consistent but fascist displays were consistent and they had to be thinking about his desire for a military parade. Just a mock the Soviets the Soviet bloc for doing that. It's just not something that republics generally do but the sense of symbolism. There is powerfully appealing. I mean he's he's he has all the markers of the authoritarian mindset. That was obvious from his business career. It's just who he is and the appeal with all returning politics. Success always been here in the US. I mean the potential of going fascists by the ballot boxes always been there. But it's there's always been a number of Czechs Wchs within our civil society and within the public sphere that help to prevent that and the erosion of of the functioning public sphere and and of our civic engagement with one another has really helped to to foster this and a lot of I mean people will often point to things like the rival Fox News and whatnot. They're they there's no single answer. There's a lot of factors played a part in that but it. Certainly that is definitely one of them's right. And the vilifying the vilifying of the media the vilifying of anybody who holds a different political view than him for instance as a Democrat. I'm considered to be scum by by Donald Trump It's not. It's not supposed to be that way. It's never been this way. I mean Barack Obama. I've had plenty of problems with him but I believed that he felt as if he was president for all the people. Donald Trump on the other hand feels like he only represents you if you're a Republican right and that has been building up for quite some time and I think that people are becoming aware of at once it's reached a kind of fever pitch under trump. There are strong elements. It's kind of like a cult of personality and vilification going back into the nineteen eighties Around the Reagan movement but there was still more of an emphasis on kind of positive message even though it was one time on the one hand trashing the opponents it was still trying to point to a positive future. For America from much more apocalyptic and his tone and the There's a significant shift in the The way that they approach things that does make the other side into scum one of the things that point out to my students is that no democracy. No Republican possibly survive without a concept of a loyal opposition It is possible to disagree and still be loyal. Americans and that concept has actually already disappeared for a clear at the very large chunk of the population in a clear majority Republicans. We can see that even in my incumbent I mean he has frequently over a period of many years now stated publicly that he's not interested in talking to anyone who hasn't voted him. He's won enough elections and he just does not feel that he needs to care about the opinions of anybody who isn't already a supporter and that's not how it's supposed to work. He's supposed to represent me as well. Of course that's dangerous. This is frightening all the more reason. We not only need to hold onto the house but the Democrats need to take the Senate and and the White House because frankly I fear that if Mitch McConnell is allowed to continue his assault on the judiciary this year on our court systems and Donald Trump can remain in office that we're doomed. I don't I I I think we're barely GonNa make it through twenty twenty I fear if they win another term in either controlling the house or the executive branch that we're done am I being too pessimistic It's hard to say I I like to point to the fact that trump himself does seem relatively incompetent in some ways. He's too transparent unsparing which means we can see a lot of mistakes. He's making so it might be harder for him to actually carry out that kind of transition into What well we tend to call a managed democracy something more like Russia where you have the pretense of elections but it's really much more of a mersal dictatorship But the fact that he has consistently gotten away with so much and that his base is more loyal to him that to any other modern presidents is is honestly frightening so it is entirely possible but it is hard to say what one thing I would point to is. It's It's dangerous to think just in terms terms of our need to take the White House. Take the Senate that sort of thing. Yes that's all true but we have to take with the right people at the right approach because if we do we're not tackled the the course stomach issues that may trump viable all we do. Is We set ourselves up for something worse right and this is why I mean I I mean trump is worse than W W it was worse than Reagan Union one sets out to destroy government more and to concentrate more and more power in the hands of the executive I. It's been a a steady progression. There and throughout that whole period Democrats have tended to help particularly on the larger national stage run as Republican light and not change a great deal. I mean neither Obama. I mean Obama and Clinton are basically Ivan Howard Republicans best drills in their policy approaches. I agree to their their handle on the economics. And if we don't really deal with I mean trump won because he can Latch onto the anger. People have they don't know what they're angry about per se. They don't know the real details of this because most people don't really understand policy but they know they're upset upset they know things don't seem right and if someone comes along and says I can give you the answer. This is the answer I have it. Vote for me. That'll work So you mean just taking the White House if we take the White House with you know some smiling empty suit. Then that person's GonNa lose the next election two stories worst I and trump right and then we have another repeat of Twenty twenty where the Democrats than lose the all this massive routing in the house. And I don't even want to. I don't even want to think about that. I prefer to think of the positive so one last question for you Liam o'meara again is our guest running for Congress from the forty second district of California who in Congress or in politics and government you admire. Are there any that you say. That's that's what I aspire to be. That's what I WANNA do. They're a good example. Well in terms of of character and principle absolutely absolutely I have long admired Sanders for taking what. I'm here to be unpopular positions and sticking with sticking to his guns and over time making kingdom popular or or at least being right before anyone else was the fact that he was for marriage. Equality in the seventies is remarkable is consistently been right over and over again on a lot of major Jewish you and and I admired that he stuck with that and I admire a lot of the The freshman that came yet I mean people like ABC or a breath of fresh air willing to talk about us Issues that people have tended to neglect the the in terms of know who I would kind of pattern myself after I'm a bit more of an egg head than people I mean a Bernie's much better krauts in that's for sure it's but in terms of his character and his principles and a great deal of I think well I would like to say that I. I would hope to say that I have something in common with at least and sticking with my positions and basing on on reason as opposed to just whatever feels good and it whatever fits a particular popular notion great. I'm I'm with you one hundred percent on on that couldn't agree more Liam o'meara again the website is Liam o'meara dot org. You're on facebook and twitter. It's Liam o'meara Roman numeral four. I've e- You typing it in on facebook you can just type in Liam Congressman. Goes Straight to me. I'll call the American Congress twitter. It's my facebook instagram. They all just think for Congress all right Liam it was a pleasure talking with you. Thank you so much. Best of luck in When is the California primary my pleasure and thank you very much? The primary is third March And then the general the accident November but March so. We need your help in supporting that coming two months you got it. Thank you so much great talking with you is so nice to meet you. Thank thank you very much. Have a great day you too. So Liam o'meara candidate for Congress. Thank you forty eighth. I guess I didn't. I didn't edit that Anyway so I'm glad we aired that today because you needed to hear from him. Liam America great candidates so we did talk about during the interview his beard and his hair and interestingly enough a about a week after about a week or so. After we've recorded that he sent me an email telling me that the issue of the hair has has come up and let me give you the latest and he said They're actually going to incorporate his hair into a fundraiser. So they're calling it a fund raiser instead of a fundraiser her get it fund raiser it's set for February sixteenth from three to six. PM He writes it will probably be live streamed but video is definitely being made of the the whole event music comedy shearing and will be posted on Youtube facebook etc afterward. If you can mention it that would be fantastic so we just did. So there you go it is a fund raiser where I don't know how much of the the hair and the beard he's GonNa cut off but he's going to do something and he's going to do what does a fundraiser for his campaign so that happened. While that interview was playing more news was made. And I'm actually read it to you from the source I because I don't want to get anything wrong here but I told you this was going to happen. Lieutenant Colonel Alexander. VIND men was escorted out of the White House today. We're he has dutifully served his country and his president. He does so having spoken publicly elite once and only pursuant to a subpoena from the United States Congress. His lawyer read issued a statement statement. Let me see if I can get the statement up. It says today Lieutenant Colonel Alexander. Van Men was escorted out of the White House where he has dutifully served his country. What I just said there's no question in the the mind of any American why this man's job is over why this country now has one less soldier serving it at the White House Lieutenant? Colonel Kinman was asked to to leave for telling the truth. His honor his commitment to write frightened the powerful during his decades of service to this country. Lieutenant Colonel Vitamin has served quietly but dutifully and he has served with honor. He came into the public eye. Only subpoenaed to testify before Congress and he did. The law demanded in recent months many entrusted with power in our political system of coward out of fear and a handful of men and women not endowed with Prestige Prestige or power but equipped only with a sense of right borne out of years of quiet service to their country made different choices. They courageously chose chose to honor their duty with integrity to trust the truth into put their faith in country ahead of fear and they have paid a price. The truth has cost lieutenant. Colonel Alexander van men his job his career and his privacy he did want any member of our military's charged with doing every day. He followed orders. I did his oath and he served his country even when doing so was fraught with danger and personal peril and for that the most powerful man in the world bullied by the silent the pliable and the complicit has decided today to exact revenge. Lieutenant Colonel Alexander. Van Man leaves the the White House today but we must not accept the departure of truth duty and loyalty that he represents in this country right matters and so does truth truth. Truth is not partisan if we allow truthful voices to be silenced. If we ignore their warnings eventually there will be no one left to warn us again. That's a statement released by Alexander van men's attorney following vitamins being escorted from the White House property telling telling him his services are no longer needed. This is life under post impeachment trump and again keep in mind. He's been impeached G. I know it's late. We ran late today. Because there's one other thing need to share with you and it's a piece that just went up from from David Dayan at the American prospect which is is a must read magazine. Now that David Dayan is executive. Editor there It's it's a short one but I'm going to share this with you before we leave in fact you know what it's that short that I can probably start the The ending music underneath. So let's let's get Lily Hayden playing Yes for those who ask this is lily. Hayden L. I. L. I. H. A. Y. D. N.. And she makes incredible music so this is one of hers that she gave to me to use for theme song on the show. All right so the article I want to share with you from the American prospect at Prospect Dot Org Org the headline reads Tom. Perez should resign preferably today and the article reads this way. Tom Perez should never never have been DNC chair. He was used as part of a proxy war between Barack Obama's faction of the establishment and the rest of the party which was already fully holy ready to move on after the twenty sixteen mess. Both Harry Reid and Chuck Schumer had embraced Keith. Ellison one of Bernie Sanders top surrogates in two thousand sixteen eighteen for the position. A show of unity that might have helped rebuild broken bonds within the party just as Howard Dean's elevation to DNC chair. In two thousand five live rebuild brought insurgents within a broader circle of power ellison's victory would have at least attempted a rough union between the Sanders Anders and Clinton forces and given the party's left-wing more of a shot at creating a strong and legitimate message to counter. Donald Trump Obama couldn't handle it. He pressured Perez. Who is musing about running for governor in Maryland into the race and bore down on the establishment establishment to break with the Ellison unity stick and accept his preferred candidate? This eventually succeeded with the help of a party. Coup in Puerto Rico Geico that delivered Perez all of that delegation's votes So that's what happened. Okay but wait. There's more Obama. Aw Now a movie. Studio boss and occasional public speaker had no personal reason to force Perez on the Party. The most logical reading any of his rationale would be that he did it for the BLOB. The blob the network of consultants strategists pollsters lobbyists policy mandarins and media figures. For whom politics is their business. They didn't want the SPIGA close on the hundreds of millions of dollars that flow through campaigns and they needed to eliminate the threat of a gatekeeper. Like Ellison who might have different ideas so Perez was installed the the disastrous past week democratic politics as the result deeply damaging to the perceived competence of Party that is attempting to ask the American people people to put them back in power to engage in activist government. The Iowa results weren't just one snafu but part of a pattern learn of self dealing and stupidity within a party elite. That's more concerned with staying in power than taking power and so for the second straight cycle like Debbie Wasserman Schultz A. DNC chair needs to step down before the end of their term. Tom Perez must must go and to that we say she right on David Dayan. Yeah find again David. Day and at the American prospect at prospect prospect dot org. I wanted to make sure I could share that with you before the program ended today. See the things. I predicted the beginning of the show already happening. Then man has gone. Trump is is just just reeling in all of his dictatorial powers and make no mistake. It gets going to get worse a lot worse before it gets better. So don't forget tonight. The next democratic debate. They vote in New Hampshire on Tuesday debate. Tonight New Hampshire Tuesday. We need to stay engaged and most of all we need to make sure you're registered and vote because once again final say it. Keep your eye on the prize and the prize is a White House without Donald trump in it have a great weekend everyone will see Tuesday by.

Seattle: More complicated than anarchist

"Take. This is kyw the caricature of Seattle as of violence-ridden quote anarchist jurisdiction has been a talking point for Donald Trump during his reelection campaign to help with this tactic into perspective Udub Historian Margaret o'meara joined Patricia Murphy for today's edition of Seattle. Now I imagined that a lot of people listening had the experience that I had this summer. You know when when everything's starting to happen that you get these calls or emails from concerned friends and family members saying, are you? Okay what's happening a Seattle on fire particularly? If you were only getting your news from certain outlets. You could easily think the whole place was on fire, but also Seattle politics even as it continues to be played kind of the anarchist jurisdiction it's much more complicated than that. There are a lot of different factions. The way that this is being framed. Now, by the trump administration, it's as if Jenny durken and the most liberal slash socialist meme left-leaning members of the city council are all on the same side and those of us who live here know. They they they're not definitely definitely, it's much more complicated. Exactly. Why does this tactic that trump is using work? What is it about our psychology in time and space right now that is making the so effective. Well every. Every myth effective meth is built around a grain of truth, right? There have been participants who firmly believe that nonviolent protest isn't going to get you anywhere on that violence is is part of it and now we have another layer of. Right. Wing violence agitators coming in. We saw this vividly in Portland within the last month who are contributing to this and kind of creating a very volatile atmosphere. But the the bigger picture of of everything else is not being transmitted and I think it's catching on in this moment because one. We have a very polarizing incumbent president who has whose campaign strategy and actually governing strategy has been intensely oppositional, which is something that American presidents of both parties have not done before or not done in modern memory. Yeah. Yeah. You have devoted your entire career to studying the presidency among other things I'm curious about your head about what's going on. What's happening in Margaret? Mary's head Oh. My Gosh. This is going to be therapy session with the whole region. I tried to remember remind myself that. One of the reasons I entered this business is because I think history gives us lots of reasons for optimism. History history can be a big Downer trust me when you really have a very unvarnished look at the past, it is very uncomfortable and because you do have to kind of leave those rosy images behind. And also these caricatures whether it's a caricature of Seattle as an anarchist zone or a caricature of George. Washington I cannot tell a lie you need to move and think about these human processes and human beings and when you do that, you see a lot of ugly but you also see a lot of beauty. You see a lot of instance in when protests and political action including voting made a huge huge difference and when leadership. Can Change everything either for good or for bad? You know we are not destined to kind of drive in a certain direction there is. There is a lot of dynamism at work here and you know this is perilous and this is serious and it does keep me up at night but I look for the hope history and I keep on latching onto that and thinking about where we go from there, you can hear more of this conversation by searching for Seattle now on your favorite podcast.

125. WALK THIS WAY

"They do this as reasons to be cheerful. Yeah well I don't know if you'd be able to tell just now listening this book. We are out on on location location. We are on route. Yeah we're out on the street because the episode is about walking so we thought we'd come for wardhaugh enjoying this. I'm really enjoying a wondered if we should afon zone. You know your phone is truck and how many steps you do it. I wondered if we compare who does the most steps in a in a given day. I'm not sure sure I think we sort of I think. The Iowa caucuses this this this thing because I don't think he's kind of right. I mean I'm sorry. This will be a pain. The average twenty six seventh of January. It says six thousand three hundred thirty sixty six steps a day. Which teams do we think mine is higher or lower? It's thirteen thousand. Two hundred seventy nine hundred eighteen because of the what we're doing doing now you'll numbers. Let's just look at. How'd you look at the? What's the competitive is really upsets? Wanted my metrics is a AH walk. Gene Tas Three D.. Won't Jason Suray Harvest over there whereby my groceries looks nice salt if I went in there had a promise. You be like cheers where everybody knows your name. Do you think. Well yeah now feel like that. who run acknowledged? Oh Uh that's my guy says he's smiling at me. I'm very very well liked in the supermarket. Really Yeah you see. That's the prising too do you. Well how are you good you busy. Yeah he's good he's at he's nursery today. Yeah so yeah. It's all very well. I liked the supermarket to get that uncharacteristic view that normally says Mr Trump it. I am misanthropic but I'm good at some needed to be like I'm good at these. Shorts Interactions Right. I'm yesterday somebody. Somebody just said hello to you. Did you someone's face. It's hey it's me of moonlight I sort of like skull needy Selfie mome and why are we on a walk what what is walking in context of this episode. Well we're talking about walking. We're talking to Shane. o'meara who is a neuroscientist talk about the benefits of walking. I think we kind of know that their benefits but he's really compelling then. We all need to be talked to Joe. Irvin who runs. The living streets treats organization formerly the Pedestrians Association and Tuesday clarice who transport planet and works for our up and then our cheerful person this week is somebody. Yeah because you've known her whole life Adad is Alastair Campbell and she does a podcast with him which is why I mentioned him but away from that she is up and coming comedian in her own right. She's got Oh stuff going on. It's grace Campbell. Yes so So what's your reason to be. Cheerful them my reason to be cheerful. Is that the initiative of my wife. All good things happen at the image different. My wife we start to go on family film trips today more Sunday afternoon right right so far we we went to see the private life. David Copperfield I was up good and belittle women mytton. It was good. It was good to take our two boys two little women. They really enjoyed it. But I'll tell you what. The cinema was definitely cheerful. But I there was an experience switch immediately. Made me think of you. It was kinda slightly pushed to them all they want about not having mobile phone on in the mindset of joy the show and then about three of the way through. I thought I'd take it quits neat feat my food and literally he was then like within about four seconds. Use their freight. So you're going to turn off your mobile phone news quite embarrassing in this small cinema better view mccollum by the I mean the speed of response is like the armed police overrides. He's scaring the audience. Constantly must be again. I respect him for that very very strong fuel reason to be Jeff Lime reasons I mentioned last week but then it happened. I went to Mama Mia area the waiting for the report back. What was it like? It was incredible as I mentioned. It's a replica. Greek to earn Mama. Mia Yeah you go in have Email and while you're having the male the weightings Aktau play which is different Tacoma mayor. It's not the same story is in the same. I'm cinematic universe. I believe ish but there's lots of songs and we weren't in the most expensive seats. We were higher on a balcony. Right guess who comes walking along where we're sitting. Bill Clinton note veteran that Hillary Clinton Barack Obama. I've got quite thank me clue. Mama Mia the party. I think the key the clue is in the setting the yes. Yes yes I was. Too starstruck awestruck and shy to go over and say hello to. There's an irony here which is on Bulnes podcast. Who say you'll never get to the table Eh? Sitting out and I got a friend picture of me with his Napkin tucked into a and holding up the glass. Say He'd been drinking. Wow that is which is recommended for me now. I don't think you'd enjoy it unless you could guarantee that beyond was going to be there. I think a lot of people would enjoy. Just don't think you you don't like a musical getting getting up. Have you'll see racing along. Yeah Singalong I'm just not all fitting yes. I'm not a good move right. I've got rhythm only seem the reasons to be cheerful with Jeff. Lloyd we have on the line in Dublin. Shane o'meara who is a professor of experimental Era Mental Brain Research Trinity College. He's author of a fantastic book called in praise of Walking Shane. Hello Hello I'm devices to be speaking with you. He's the walking champion of all walking champions releasing here's the Volcker Wolkanczik at. We were just saying before. We turn the microphones on the big big fans of walking in all its form ambling puttering strolling striding rambling. Give give me any of them you you you argue that walking is what makes us human. What you mean by that? I think You know humans do make this case And walkin a distinctly different way to all of their animals and we undergo a transition that is quite unlike any other species on the planet. You know if if you think back to when you were into our when you observe other kids crawl around on all fours and then around about a year or so of age to make this dramatic change Hey where they start to sit up they start to pull themselves up and they go from stable to a very unstable position but I my argument is very straightforward forward without this transition. I our brains. Wouldn't be mobile in the world. In the with the our our hands would not be free so this kind of changes is it is the core of the kind of change that allowed us to walk out of Africa and conquer the banners will. That's pretty big deal and yes yeah I think so. I think it's time for a bit of Cook a gaunt. I think it's his first appearance on our pulled cost but you quote him in your book. Every day. I woke myself into a state of wellbeing and walk away from every illness. I've walked myself into my best thoughts and I know of no thought so burdensome that one cannot walk away from it you'll cases it's good for mental and physical health. Yes yeah absolutely. That is good for body and brain and you know. Just let's take the body just from Way We humans are again during a very strange thing to ourselves we might spend. I guess maybe fifty or sixty hours a week sitting around which which is something that we've never done before and we need contract Tendency we have towards a sedentary lifestyle and the easy and obvious thing to do to get on our feet and get moving and we know that the the very active walking changes things in your breathing changes your heart changes the the stress and strain that you place on your muscles. It's good few in in myriad ways in terms of your body functions but it is also remarkably the market. Good for you in terms of of how your rain functions as well tell. Tell us more about that. If your seasons at the moment I'm standing and walking while I'm talking to you in my office I got one of those treadmills or just walking around on diagonally across from one Carter of my office the other. Wow do that law. I am hoping to get a treadmill desk but eh one you deserve all sorts of ones out there so anyway. That's kind the by the by so when you're you're not actually placing much strain on the part of your body apart from the small of your back. Which is why you might have a lower back pain when you stand everything changes for you? You're breathing changes. The brain has to do something which is hasn't had to worry about before which is maintaining stability so getting upright and staying upright is no mean achievement for brain and a whole series of rhythms Sir Sir previously required in your brain suddenly kick into play And everything changes for you. You're hearing becomes a little bit sharper in your vision. Becomes a little bit sharper and your brain is ready for action and argue in the book that the reason we have a brain is for movement. You don't need a brain if you're not moving around in the world and because we have a brain that's been for movement we should take advantage of this and it does something to your creativity. Yeah so What we know from observing the degrade artists and novelists and others of the of the generations rations is that they walk they walk a loss So a ninety was kind of one of the greatest philosophers of all time. You could set the clock by in Koenigsberg. Mark Stephen King at the novelist walks in astonishing amount and we can demonstrate. Experimentally does say people it become a little bit more creative after short periods of walking around the world so a very simple way of doing. This is. If you're at your desk. Can you pick up a pen or some of the other objects that might be lying around and you have to ask yourself how many how many uses can I come up with for this object. So this is is a kind of an alternative uses task. If you're Caesar's and you do this task you might come up with four or five or six but if I get you to walk around on for ten minutes before you do tasks like this. They numbers of ideas that you generates approximately doubles. Yeah and there's also something something else that's really important about this. Finding it has recently been replicated in Taiwan with a group of people in their seventies. What you find is that people in their seventies who walked for a short period prior to generating ideas come up with about twice as many of them as do seated? Twenty year-olds this. Is I think one of these kind of overlooked little tricks to ensure that you keith need some degree of creativity as you get older now. Shane give us some advice. How much should we be woking each week And how should we be woking mole. We should all be walking north lot more so than the average child learns to walk does about two thousand listen three hundred steps per hour which is lost when you consider that the average adults in western societies he does about four thousand four thousand five five hundred steps a day so not much. The Japanese are the best has walkin day do about five and a half thousand steps a day which is really not so much. Where is our people who were living are sometimes referred to as ancestral lifestyles? They will walk fifteen kilometers a day. And they have astonishing astonishing heart health. So they the people that live in the blue zones around the world and lift like hundred yeah exactly kilometers in steps so a it. I think we've all heard ten thousand steps today saying it was a marketing team for pedometers in the sixties. But it actually I think is quite useful. This will because ten thousand steps if your stride length is a major I is more or less ten kilometers so if you can do ten thousand steps today consistently exactly that's what you need to do. I would suggest. Is You do it in bursts cross the day rather than exhausting yourself in one go. They were built to do kind of distributed active busy So you can easily Hack Os ten or twelve thousand steps today Some of it should be got speed. Should be difficult to speak when you're doing. You should break a moderate sweat so let's say our hard in a city this is the Ba- I struggle with. I was going to ask about this because to go into the controversial territory wants a balance between sort of walking and running or walking and cycling liked walking and swimming and but your thing is really econ just be sedate walking. It's got to be you got to get your heart rate up. Update you really. Yeah so again. I think you need to ask yourself the purpose of the walk you're going on is so if you're going to have a tink an attachment ask yourself about a difficult problem. Maybe Nas pump out the the power will maybe do as a little bit of a slow race but if you're doing it for the purposes of cardiac the account and doing thirty forty minutes at about six kilometers. An hour is kind of the terrorist. Really wants to be. I don't want to come across as being anti runner Oronte cycling or anti swimming. I think these things are all great activities. I suppose the one thing I'd say about running as per million in steps wrong as opposed to permission steps walk what you see is runners injured themselves rather lost whereas walkers hardy injure themselves yourselves at all the the level of injury is kind of flash So running does present certain problems. Our cities aren't good for running. You can turn on your ankle you can follow. You can do quite a few things that you might do when you're when you're at walking. Can we talk about Town planning and yeah. What kind of thought could be given to town planning the interest of walkers and also you decided that psychologists and neuroscientists should be involved in that T.? Tell us a bit more. I guess the point it really is this. You know when you think about where people want to go in our towns and cities gold wanted to go to places where other people are so the tourist attractions in London just take an example are places like covent garden there are no cars Present in Covent Garden. People aren't going to the a forty west to who meets with others except if they're maybe nerdy motorway enthusiasts by the more general point is that they need to make our towns and cities have tariff barriers. That are places that people want to be. In other words we need to stop thinking thoroughfares. As places far cars we need to think of as destinations for people and that means the kinds of things are are interested to a psychological need need to be built into them. They need to be beautiful. That need to be Green. The need to founded nece at the need to have a quality known as porosity so the the it must be lots of angles and intersections places. The people can ten generally meet each other by accident and I don't sense from our current generation of town planners stay. Stay the ticket. People as anything other than the kind of awkward bits of squashy fleshed really should be contained in cars. Can I get that no fence talk of the town planners who are listening against an exception to that right We have a thing on the podcast chain called Jeff crecy which is where Jeff is the Supreme Rula if you if he made you think frankly he should. The Minister of a walking nominees facility walks not Mississippi. Walks that What's the first thing you you would do a ban all city center parking? Oh talking not yes. No people won't bring their cars into town if nowhere to park them. Interesting and divulge all of those car spaces to widen footpaths to to bringing in small micro environments to providing stands for bicycles and to creating space for fixed-line I transport trams. Wow sounds good. Now I'd been standing up for the sort of second. Half of this interview is that it's standing up. A good thing. Standing is better than sitting without any dose. But there's no reason why you couldn't be walking if space face allows you to so. I've been walking continuously since we started this and I guess I've done about fifteen hundred steps in that period. How feats the revelation relation you? All the champion woking advocate of all walking advocates. Thanks so much for joining us. Thank you so much for having me talk further about what we can do in the vision for walking on blood say that we're joined by Jovan chief executive of living streets and Susan clarice who the transplant and currently associate director of the Engineering Arab. Thank you so much for joining us. Joe Tell us some first of all. What's the story behind living streets? And what do you do so what we were a charity the UK charity for everyday walking and we started back in one thousand nine hundred. Ninety nine Moore call the pedestrians association. And why because suddenly suddenly there was most of trophic suddenly building up a not much control over it so the six thousand people killed that year on the roads within the Amelia motorcars. So what did they want. They wanted pedestrian crossings over the people who brought you the crossing multiple. They wanted a driving test before you drove cars which didn't come in for quite a long time amazingly and they wanted a speed limit on the roads. which didn't exist at the time? So those those came in the nineteen thirties but nowadays what we do is is we are campaign we we advise on good conde streetscape we we also deliver projects around the country. Three must notably while Walter School. We've heard from Shane. Why he's what he thinks? The health benefits of walking when you advocate for walking and for the for living streets. What what what what we also case you make? Yeah well so I mean physical activities really important Auden but there's also the environment and this is pauline. Increasing consensus is probably a year or two ago it was quality but I think climate change is come back as a major issue shoot and people are realizing they can't solve this whole issue transports the biggest emitter about third of all sale two emissions in the UK. And it can't all be sold by just trying to make it all electric so we can't go from thirty eight million vehicles make them electric and it'll solve everything. This could be a reduction in in Traffic so we've got to drive less. We've got to walk more and be more active as part of the solution even to the Climate Crisis Susan. Tell us from your perspective because you come from a slight different place you you're a transport planners I said in the introduction you work for Arab wh tell us what you work on in terms uh-huh of walking and people being able to walk in and cities and and how we design them. It's it's a whole range of things I think is looking at walking both as a mode in its own right but it also really important role. It plays getting to the bus. Stop getting us to train stations. So about half. The walking down in London is for Public Transport so I see walking the glue that holds the the city together but also it's really important role in town centres assemblies Struggling high streets at the moment and for a long time been the misconception that the only people who spend money those with House House whereas research including research my living streets has shown that actually. It's the people who watch town centres. who spend more money? They stay for longer. They make more trips. They spend more money so in terms of actually some of the failing streets so walkability has benefits around including for employers. Like my own as well so we know that if our staff walk or cycle to work they they tend to be happier. They tend to be more alert. They have fewer days of sick. They're more creative. So that's the move. The benefits are tangible throughout the whole of a town or city. Give sort of fantasy of people listening to podcasts. Live in different places cities towns villages but fantasy. For where what we what should we aspire ought to round the world. All one of my favorite examples is a relatively small town in North West Bank or Pontevedra. And it's often described as being car-free but it's naught cars are allowed but under very controlled circumstances so it really is strictly if you if you need a vehicle and the vehicle has to go at very low speeds and is is is subordinate to walking in particular. And the reason I like Pontevedra is a small place. It's only eighty thousand population so isn't a New York or London and other places is is can't relate to but also the mayor there started giving priority to people on for twenty years ago. He's been reelected seven times on that basis. which is fantastic mystic? Also there's twenty years of experience and the key thing is is that the population in that town has gone up. While surrounding towns population has gone down and critically childhood population. Shenice gone up were elsewhere. It's declining so it's the city that just puts people walking for our today. Police the you can use your car if you need it. It's a permit system system is up for people with disabilities. Yeah so carnival. But they're still they're allowed in as as guests if you like an it's an it just it creates. I went there last year but it just creates a fantastic environment for walking around because you haven't got constant traffic. You haven't got the risk of safety that bring people are just more relaxed and in that town eighty thousand people so this is not tiny place. No no it's not tiny but it's not huge because when you talk about what happens in us at at the London or your people will say are but we're not London it's different there and yes every place is different but yes you're starting to see other smaller places in the UK of got cities. He's like your that are interested. Brighton even Birmingham sort of now. H- stating intentions to is often described as being carefree but at least Acess to reduce the dominance of motor vehicles in the areas. Joe Charles while the other major barriers to walking busy. But it's not just what he calls the band or allow Dole semi bander. No it's not but it's the dominance of traffic is a big thing so we survey people and Traffic is so the speed of tropical. The amount of tropical the danger jeff from traffic is often high in people's minds not least parents of children going to school. So that's a big factor. Sometimes the roads are so big and dominant that they can sever an an entire community and people don't feel safe crossing the road. There's the maintenance and the look and feel of a place can you make it more attractive. Look it's been done in Waltham forest recently it's really the attractive place now to go and walk around as to live there in the eighteen minutes certainly wasn't quite so so nice then and your manifesto for the election which I which I read. It's beat limits. Yes so fast. Vehicles are dangerous so we know speed kills. But also they're very off putting to people to go to play some funded Catholics noisy. It seems dangerous is hostile so so we're we're proposing along with the organizations that should be a standard twenty mile. An hour limit met in urban areas built various. That doesn't mean they'll be every single road but it becomes the standard whereas at the moment the standards thirty and you'll see and lots of London boroughs twenty miles an hour the city of London's twenty mile an hour and there are many many towns and cities around the country are trying to do. The same is roundabout the speed where people feel a bit safer from Susan. What are the things you can do to make a street more walkable? There's first of all I think every street can be improved road off down more. I don't think it could be better quite often. It's quite simple things like The surface of the paving the condition of the foot way or is this litter left Donnette all their assigned bulbs blocking it or bikes. tickly bike hires. Sometimes the high bikes blocking it. Fell and transport for London has an Healthy streets indicators and that talks about having you know people from all walks of life every pun intended on it it's about having shade and shelter somewhere arrest. There are very very few benches around a lot of people do need to do. Need to rest onto sit down and it's about having interesting street so you have Interesting sort of shop frontages not having lots of blank walls or shutters that down it's about having these expression not too noisy which I think is an interesting one because those people are always want complete silence. It's having that sort of feel that there were other people around one of the things I feel really strongly about is having things like public toilets blitz. They are very important in making city more walkable. So it's a it's a whole range of things that range from greenery and seating wider foot ways. He's not having foot ways blocked or obscured. Ideally having fewer cars popped on them because then it gives up a safe fail It's about having right levels of lighting being so it's lots of things that that work together rather than than one thing so we have local groups about forty local groups around the country that just a little example of how you can make a difference so the London London group got in touch with transport for London and it was about the crossing time. So when there's light control crossing how long do you get across. There's lots of evidence come out that there's the standard speed that the planet which is one point two meets the second and many people particularly people don't and so just try it so they've gone round and they've done surveys and just the timing a lot of little crossings in London and it's really a small thing so easy to do is not expensive and yet it makes a a big difference and it turns out the one point two meters second by the way comes from a single study in the United States in the nineteen fifties. And it's just been used by everybody ever since and so it's not really you know it's not really a assigned to mock to modern people with an aging population. Just giving a bit more time to cross can help. And how do we get. Change sometimes requires quite a leap to go from where we aw to where we would like to be. We can have a Sparta Pontevedra. But it's taking twenty years and you know what what what's your view about. How how this change to happen? I think one of the key ways it can happen by having trial so people can actually see what different something can make so it can be quite simple such as Closing streets rich traffic at one end. Just doesn't require too much too much work to do it. And then people can say what the what the result of that is There have been some large scale trial. L. Scam Saipan junction is probably the most well known one on the biggest one in London so bank junction was closed to traffic. During during the working day and after eighteen months experience experience the city of London decided to make that Permanent Roy so that was a really good way for support to build up because otherwise from the city from people. 'cause they could actually see see what the change walls and what the impact would be and so. I think having trials so people can actually see the change is is one of the most effective ways of bringing around change to due to attention to Ginette Sadique Kahn. Who is the transport transportation? I should say commissioner for New York under Bloomberg and make radical change and one of the things they we did was to professionalized Times Square which people for. How can they possibly do that? Absolute raw from certain quarters and and they try and they tried it Thursday. I ate she said you were watching. It and the road was clear but there was nobody there and she got in touch with people. They went to local cool stores and bought little. Fold up plastic seats. Put them there and by the afternoon it was full when people were sitting there reading. They were eating there. Were talking with each other and they never looked back. When did that happen? So that's probably five years ago. Something like that and then the six this the man who succeeded Bloomberg was going to reverse that. There was such an outcry against that. He didn't do it. So it's still pedestrianised really thriving today and she's done also really good stuff just taking can't smoke parking areas again so traders anomaly really fearful of that but so do a trial take out ten parking spaces somewhere put down some green paint or something nothing gets implants gets Yeah Park Glitz and all of a sudden it isn't it isn't a question of where to the calls go where the people come from an you. You know so it can fundamentally change the use place to state the obvious. This does also depend on the quality of public transport. Yeah so to get people into Ciccio town centres. Yes so a lot of the stuff in London works because you do have a public transport alternative so the two aspects of this really one is. We've got to have better public transporters. Susan isn't said people give up the cost for longer journeys unique a public transport so you can walk to the bus or possibly a train or metro to make the journey. The second thing is is just planning so being able to walk to somewhere at you want to go to most people if you ask them what they want to corner shop. They want a school with primary. The school at least within walking distance probably secondary school doctors surgery and little places. That isn't the case particularly new new developments because it's being rushed rush through without thinking through what needs to be support now. That is a big driver of how Y- of of people walking having to go further and if there's no public transport either you're forced to drive. And if you think some of the new new build communities including South Yorkshire you'll find that the people gotten alternative so definitely they go together talk about schools earlier talks about your walk to School campaign because it has been very successful. Sure so we've been going steadily ten years and we now how about two thousand schools about million children right across the country so what we do is go into the school. We have a computer system. Paul traveled tracker so each day. The the kids go in and they go wolf. That's my kind of icon may be penguin or something. And that's how I traveled school day. Got Seven options walk. Cycle drove whatever so they so they just tap on that. So we've got this massive data. Actually which is fantastic from that but what we say. While while started tails off as once a week for a month you'll get a batch and we get the children take part in the competition to design the badges and for primary school children. It's still a really effective incentives blue. Peter was very so what's up. It's about getting messages. We'll do we'll do assemblies one. We'll try to get the message through to parents. Haven't because therafter making the decision and we'll also go out and address the physical problems so safety on the streets maybe a crossing. Maybe sometimes it's not even the safety of the crossing just a very forbidding sort of environment one time I remember Manchester. We'd just kind of painted up a wall which is like a factory trouble but without the very forbidding you know very Some megabit bright and cheerful and kids today and they they get school. They're getting getting some exercise before they get to school and the study saying the teachers say they're more alert. Learn by so there in that state we have a fancy utopia hope here on the podcast called the Jeff Walker see. I'm benign hands off later. But I'm very proud woking if I was to make you join walking saw. I mean thinking walking king-size had walker. What would be the first thing you would do on day? One first thing I would do would be to implement a system of national right pricing. One thing that will be tolls on roads. Yes all some mechanism for charging because London. Yes but I think it needs to be done at the national national level because cities are fearful of doing it in case because isn't a level playing field so I think actually having a national road pricing scheme the could be designed to deter her short journeys if it was any more sophisticated it could deter them at certain times of the day or when air quality is poor and I think that would be people with their naturally actually being more aware of their decisions. I think the big problem is once. You've got a car because the fixed cost of the car is so high. You will use it as much as you possibly can to justify. That costs so once. You've got a car you've got caucus in your pocket you're gonNA use it for virtually every trip so national pricing Joe Walker and chief so Bingo. BINGO fiscal burtless said. Let's see some long-term investment plans lots of stop-start and very minor funding in this area. But if you asked me for one thing that you might change orange in one fell swoop. I'd probably say the twenty mile an hour in urban areas. That would make a big difference to the to the feel of areas and make them much more attractive and the good again. My National Road Pricing System would fund improvements. There we go home sold Susan Clarice and gentlemen. Thanks so much John. We'll we're doing the up some in a new way for years. When I spent on the radio I used to do? The show stood up like this. I turned forty. I just start setting down from that point it almost all the shows stunning. Wow Yeah Probably get myself back trouble in later. Life through standing up so much. I was really inspired by by the episode. Yeah that was like an. I think you just have a bit of credit for it because you sort of said the other week or thing we should do something a bit more breath you down to earth. Just just something like Click on an individual guy on you thank you you I mean it's just the business. This isn't a yeah absolutely. I can't imagine anybody's listening to this and I'm in his antiwar you know something interesting. which is that that stuff? The Shane was saying that you psychologically feel better after walking something. I always sort of notice but I don't think thank you just think oh I feel better after war but you don't it's just it must be a function of of the way the brain will have about you get twice as many good ideas And all of that and what Susan was saying it was only something she'd noticed. But if you see kids who've walked to school they tend to be a bit more alert and engage in that that I guess what time with chains theories Raz. Yeah we all want more and we want to see our towns and cities made into more walking friendly environments absolutely as reasons to be cheerful with Jeff. If you've got views on walking particularly if your favorite they've revenue or you can work out how we can get to this new world. Please do a email us you can find more on our podcast Shifa podcasts. Dot Com begin to get a counterpoint. As what's the antiwar walkers. Yeah yeah the the Anti Walkers Listening Let us know.

Jeff I mean we have some of episodes criticizing Silicon Valley. We might not be welcome to well. We we'd be. We'd be happy to have a trip though. I'm a European transplant. A PhD student political science in Faraway Way California. I mean that just this time of year. That sounds pretty good. Doesn't it us. I'll keep walking in California before. Yeah I always enjoy listening to cheerfulness cheerfulness. From across the pond in much excitement when you didn't episode on Progressive Trade Deals which is in fact my PhD topic. I loved how you made some very technical problems. approachable to the General in Republic will on Jeff. There's one thing I would like to point out in the interest of nuance an accuracy. Also old on Jeff you guessed. For the Roosevelt Institute claimed that Bill Clinton's implementation of Nafta Ninety three was unconditional and good labor and environmental practices. In fact much of Clinton's presidential campaign at the time was about only passing Nafta if he could renegotiate renegotiates ideals but Labor in the environment he did just that shortly after. Go into office now. These side deals often. Seen is too weak and designed but I still feel like claiming there was no effort at all to like Nafta conditional on good Labor or environmental parties. Some unfettered should not go unchallenged. Other than that. Thank you for a great episode. Keep up the great work. And where where do we go. From the sunny skies of California we go to Silicon Valley although now in the next day male Silicon Valley straightway but in the immediate the future we go from Silicon Valley to know rich. Yes of course was the way or it. Jacob Jacob Hamilton Silicon Valley when I heard you took last episode about interesting places to be listening from foreign. Although I'm currently in gray cloudy Norwich oh no it gets better. Oh Gordon even better. The story says I'm listening from my lab in Norris White coat in Nora. How like beaker honey? Where I'm working on my PhD discovery? New anti-vice discovering antibiotics else exists orage resistance. These drugs is increasing. Its expected because ten million by twenty fifty at ten million the resistance gets barely any attention compared to the climate emergency which is equally important while the important Overall places. Yeah well. I'm looking at leaf cutter ant colonies and seeing how they use the other uh-huh oviously that's where it comes media. Yes new drugs for humans as well as studying new ways of using existing drugs to help combat resistance. Maybe you could do. An episode of Antibiotic Resistance of the future life from Norwich the quiz of the week. Nick definitely emails cheerful PODCASTS DOT COM twitter facebook page reasons to be cheerful cast and in this week's cheerful people slut with joined by somebody. I mean is this somebody you've seen in grow up PAT. What's the story here? What should I remember? This is Grace Campbell who is the CO host of football feminism and everything in between which is podcast. She Co host of. The Dad Alister Campbell. You do loads of stuff beside us. Member says the bump actually a bum really. Well obviously Ziama. What were you? We will nine hundred ninety four four definitely definitely the year D Kareem. Things can only get better was released. Idealized stigma inspired new labor. Because my dad's my dad's week owed exactly and you you now are multi multi hatted your a podcast overtures with your dad will feminism everything in between. You're a comedian. Jim Carney tool yeah. You're writing a book yet. What are we even start? Let's start with podcast football. Feminism and everything in between the minute it sounds descriptive. What can you tell us about it? I mean it's so it's made. My Dad is from. When I called him? He was hosting using album. Show about feminism. Yes and I called him. You called him out now. I didn't really like he didn't know it was going to happen. I was GONNA say Okay and basically could him out for all the reasons why I don't think he's a very good feminine. He really isn't no he's because he wasn't here good feminists Madison. Well he he the three things that I said why you cool women. Birds took anything around the house and he uses the excuse of icon Hans. So I can't walk the coffee machine. I can't turn on the dishwasher. Because he doesn't want to. And he's grossed out by women talking about their periods because he's a work in progress but at least he's he's I mean I felt I was on your poff and I felt like he's in his own sort of rather denial way. He is sort of acknowledging. Yes the kind of even the doing of the podcast peace over admission. The fact that he doesn't mind being so cool down shamed for things that he hasn't quite learn. Yeah Yeah and I do respect that. Because he doesn't get particularly defensive he's just like okay. I actually didn't really know what about men or didn't really know how that would make someone fails so I'm happy to change that. He just hadn't really been exposed to kind of that kind of conversation around Gender Iron and feminine. Tell us about your book on the future of men. It's currently the work in progress. I've done four interviews struck traits. I've done my dad. My boyfriend my gay. Best friend and a Fictional interview of my future son. So it's like going through the different archetypes of men in my life and so that those interviews have been really interesting and and actually the most interesting one was with job. WHO's my best friend? Because he is talking about being a gay man but in a very male world and having actually loaded straight man in his observations of toxic salinity within straight men and gay men is bound. I'm gone a lot of suffering that and I guess the book it's like a short percocet a say basically fifteen thousand words is a manifesto for how I think men could be better feminine. So how can we get better. Well I think it's it's the notion. Men can be feminists so like even my boyfriend. I've interviewed him and he's been with me for like a year and a half and you couldn't be with me and not be a feminist like it just wouldn't work but he won't say he's one he has this real like I don't want to say I'm a feminist because I hate men who say their feminist just to sort of show. Aw thrilled with themselves. Let me tell you something. WE'RE NOT GONNA buy my wife Tampax. I really think on a great guy and I want the person the catcher just think. What a great what a great modern Gosh I like knowing? Exactly how many drips she needs on the box you know they do feel that. I'm probably one of those annoying people. I think there are a lot of the recession in the dating world. Like when you day as a feminist though you meet guys who are like you have some feminists and actually in principle that no. Where's my boyfriend's the opposite in principle? Here's a complete feminist. He just has this kind of weird saying about the label. So it's so that's one barrier that we need to. We need to basically make feminism. Seem like something for man man your feminists. You said that Annapolis but I mean flawed flawed. I offer my burke and undoing Ryan some material on this as well the first time I dumped savoy he started crying right and I it was the most embarrassing pathetic thing and I asked him to stop crying and I laughed right which is internalized paycheck. I internalize the men can't show their `vulnerability men can't be league and that was when I was eighteen so I have evolved since then. But that's something that I picked up on when I was younger. So having this really strong male father who sort of was really tough but then my dad's interesting. He does have his vulnerabilities in his mental health and he is very open with that but always saw him as. It's tough man. I always saw anyone who was so. So which is really changed now but that is something that was ingrained in me. None of us are facts now. Do you takes us neatly onto your comedy show which is called. Why I'm never going into? Politics can attention seeking title. Will you compelling Tell us about this show is go. I'm never going into politics. Subtitle of Shelby Alabama's Georgia to watch never going into politics is my first fringe cringe. Wanted to sell out so that was the first marketing thing I did because I knew that people would come. I think I've given you a little blurb the quiet on my the fringe it was like grace's much funnier than her dad. But the show's openly about my childhood in politics. Wchs where it's brought me. Today I do lots of feminists campaigning. Outside of you. Definitely vote the bullets into Baltics growth story but why I would never want to be your top three reasons well firstly. I just think I couldn't do. It could be terrible one because I'd be really bad at saying things I I don't think I'd be really bad like not swearing on TV. And Radio I still love taking drugs and a very open about that. I have spent the last five years talking about my the Jonah Sachs masturbation so I solve argue the case that firstly I would be about politician and secondly Westminster wouldn't be able to like deal the right we media and Westminster wouldn't be able to actually keep so implausible separating me as a so yeah feasible. Salesmen Parliament is part of your thing. Also about what you saw politics doing to your mom. Life is unlike it just sort of was very hard awed in our family home Harissa very split on the Iraq ruled that caused a lot of stuff but also use never that was webster. Your Dad was in. We put very absent present absent even when he was present like speaking personally experience. Here you can be absent totally and actually I I mean and this is a bit. You saw I'm talking about this in the book like when he was still working Downing Street but he would have these really low oh moments of depression anxiety and he'd be at home and he wouldn't speak to any of us and he wouldn't like wouldn't be too bad but then he'd go out or Tonio. ooh like park up and be fine for like five minutes where he got into an interview. I'm be fine and it was kind of like. He had a different face in a different character for politics. They said it was almost like obviously. That's because you you show you my phone rable sides people that you love the most needful the closest bed but when I was a kid I did take quite personally from the Sun will reasons. Yeah I don't anyone my age. You want Salvadoran politics. Maybe that circles the I. Twenty five still don't know if from anybody who wants to substantially older now have a single friend who's a member of political party like Political Co.. But they don't they don't see. Westminster is the sort of hard but That kind of change making. What's the next thing for you than you do? Neta brick and the share your rights in show. So I'm not I'm doing is just comedy night. Called the disgraceful club. Riches at this nightclub called the box in Soho and we taking the red and Brown. But I'm not buying a new show of the week is an Edinburgh London. It's on Wednesday as well on their own. Choose those it's been who never say pitches a falling out with thousands. Yeah Yeah Yeah yeah they have all these crazy like sex shows insupportable. That's why I now normally bank secrecy. I give before you go grocery you give us a reason to be cheerful. A reason to reach here for your is richer. Yeah myself well I can say though but I mean you while you think of it I mean. I think it's interesting isn't there. You grew up in this new labor household. You go quite alienated by like politics big politics but you're engaged in politics but interested totally different in a in a in a totally different way and possibly more effective in a more effective way the work feminism. You know the podcast of that stuff. I think that's really away. Doesn't it show that you kind of whatever the flaws you did grow up in a household where you would like you were brought up to care about the world. Well I'm thinking you can make a change. It's a privilege to think you can change the world. You know what I mean. My reasons which was probably comedy. It's it's the thing that begets me through the day book exactly but now even like I love doing. I love writing at the moment. I'm doing so many other things. Work wise the whole time. I'm just like all right now. is buying combination and gigging and watching comedy as well. I watched old. I watch comedy. Who's any any good Ali?

Know have you. Have you ever had the experience of smelling a certain smell and it can have a dramatic effect on? You can make you remember a certain time in your life or a person or a place and scientists have studied. How smells can affect you and some of this is really interesting. For example the smell of fresh cut grass makes you feel good sent. Researchers found that a chemical released by a newly mowed lawn can actually make you feel joyful and relaxed. The Aroma may also prevent mental decline. As you grow older lavender can help you sleep. In a study of forty two college women researchers found that the fragrance effectively ease sleep problems and depression cinnamon makes you smarter participants in study.

That's how it all works. We do it all the time at work at home. When you buy a car you negotiate. It may not always feel like an ago she Asian but it is so how good you are at negotiating really matters and here to make you better at it is Alexandra Carter. She is a clinical professor of law and director of the Mediation Clinic at Columbia Law School and she spent the last several years helping. Thousands of people negotiate better build relationships and reach their goals. She's the author of book titled. Ask for more ten questions to negotiate anything. Welcome to something you should know. Thanks so much for having me. It's great to be here. I think a lot of people look at negotiating as a game a game. They're not particularly good at and so they don't like playing it because they're not very good at it and it it can get messy and it's just something we'd rather not do how do you. How do you look at it? A lot of people and this used to include me think that it's just a back and forth over money and they can only negotiate. Well if they're senior business people politicians or if they're the biggest most aggressive person in the room and that's the only kind of person who can really negotiate well and I wanted to let people know that negotiation really is for everybody and whether you're management consultant a mechanic or a mom you too can feel really confident doing it. Yeah I like that biggest person in the room thing because I think there is A. There is a lot of intimidation at least in people's perception about negotiation. The the guy they can you know swing around the room and and the big is the is the person who often wins totally you know and let me just tell you. I'm never the biggest person in the room. In fact I'm five two in sneakers. They don't even see me coming. You know an what I want people to know is there's a different way that you can be an excellent negotiator. You don't have to go through life settling for less just because you're not the biggest most aggressive person in the room. You can be really really excellent at negotiation simply by asking the right questions. Well before we get into the specific questions I imagine there's something of a mindset that you approach like wh. What's the goal. What are you trying to do with these questions? Get where you want to go. It's really simple negotiation just about steering relationships. It's about teaching. People have value from the first conversation. You have all the way through the money conversations and beyond and the other thing about steering relationships is you know what's the most important relationship of your life. It's the one you have with yourself and I find that is were negotiation has to start. You know a lot of people think it starts from the moment you sit down with somebody else and that's too late. It starts by sitting down with yourself and asking the right questions so that you go into that negotiation with power. Power is actually not about bluster or aggression. Power is about knowledge and the more you know about yourself and about your situation by raising the right questions. The more I have seen people go in and perform with tremendous confidence. So let's talk about the ten questions that you suggest people ask in negotiation. The first five questions are what I call the mirror questions and those are ones as the name would suggest where you are asking yourself and it's five great questions that you can do in thirty minutes or less to really give you that incredible clarity and peace and perspective that you need when you're going in and then the second five questions are the window questions and those for your listeners. If anybody has ever gotten in a room with somebody else or sat down and blanked on what they wanted to say. You're never going to do that again. Because you're going to have at your fingertips five great questions that are going to produce a lot of value. In any conversation you have so it's mirror and window and so let's. Let's talk about some of the specific questions that Lynn starting with the mirror. Questions what what are they. A lot of times people assume because I coach a lot of folks in negotiation. They assume that they need to start with the solution you know. Let's say you're sitting down with a contractor to talk about a bathroom renovation. And they think they should just go in and start talking about the numbers. That is not the question you need to ask the first place to start every negotiation is asking this question. What's the problem I want to solve? We always have to start by thinking about what it is that we're actually trying to accomplish. Let's take the bathroom right. So let's say for example. The problem you're trying to solve is that you're renovating your bathroom. Because you're going to sell your house. That is one set of decisions right. Maybe you're putting stuff in there that you think other people will like or. Are you renovating the bathroom? Because you're gonNA live there for the next thirty years. Or maybe even that your spouse had an accident and you need wheelchair access in that case thinking about the problem you're trying to solve all of your decisions flow from that so whether you're talking to your child about screen time in the home or whether you're negotiating for more salary what's the problem. I want to solve is the first question. You should ask great. So gimme another one of the mirror questions. You know a lot of times especially during times of uncertainty or crisis were facing a situation and we're anxious about it you know maybe we're trying to negotiate for flex time you know or childcare as you know companies return to work or maybe we've got issues in the home and here's a question that I find helps people to gain that confidence and the question is how have I handled this successfully in the past. This is a great question to ask before you go into any conversation for two reasons. The first is that simply asking. The question acts as what we call a power prime. What does that mean? It means that simply by recalling a previous success before you go into negotiate. You are proven to perform better. There's been researched straight it. The second reason to ask this really powerful question. Is that oftentimes when we look back at a prior success? This is a data generator if we write down in detail strategies that we've used before chances are that at least one of those is going to work for us again now. I just want to answer a question that some of your listeners may be thinking which is you know Alex. I've never dealt with corona virus before you know or I've never been through this kind of a pandemic and that's fine. None of us has but I'm willing to bet that a lot of people have been through situations before where they had to pivot and adapt. Maybe it was two thousand eight. Maybe it was another time you in your business or in your life when you went through a time of uncertainty and so even if it's not exactly like this situation look at something similar. Write down what you did and I know you're going to find something to help you here. All right and so now you're primed and ready to go you've you've done your inward thinking and now you're going to go start negotiating with the other guy and the first question. I'm going to tell you that people should ask on every occasion. It's kind of a trick because it doesn't have a question mark on it at all. It's two magic words and those words are tell me you know. It's amazing to me that even as conflict resolution expert unprofessional a few years into my work I was still coming home and asking my spouse or my child questions like did you have a good day and when you ask somebody a question like that whether it's an employee e or somebody in your home what's the answer that you're going to get you know usually it's a Ha. You don't get a lot from that question similar to you know when you go in. Let's imagine you're going to ask for more salary and your first question is can we increase me by ten percent again? What are the possible answers to that? It's a yes or no and when you ask somebody a yes or no question. What's the easiest thing for them to answer? No and so I want you to change that question. I want you instead to ask questions that start with. Tell me. Tell me how we can work together to get my compensation to the level that this position demands. Tell me what I need to do to demonstrate to you that I'm ready for the next level of management or even at home you know. Tell me I've noticed on your screens a lot today. Tell me more about what that's doing for you. You know it sounds crazy but that kind of question even with a child produces so much more information than you would get by closed question when I learned how to start my conversations with. Tell me I made more deals. I had better relationships and to be honest it affected even just the amount of peace and happiness. I felt every day. Well that's pretty powerful speaking with Alexandra Carter. She is author of the book. Ask for more ten questions to negotiate anything here at NAPA.

Activation fee and restrictions apply so Alex. When people talk about negotiating. It seems we're typically talking about money how to pay less for something or how to get more out of someone but I know you have examples of times when you you the the money's yet. I know you have examples of times when yes the money's important but there are other things to work in to the equation so the first time. I ever negotiated for a speaking gig. I was a fairly young professor and Somebody approached me. It was the dad of one if the little babies that my daughter played with and he said we'd love to bring you in so I negotiated with them. This was my first time and pretty quickly. I maxed them out on the money and I was convinced that they had given me all they could. And so instead of seeing this as a win lose right either. I need to get more money or the deal is done. I said okay. Tell me more about the event. They gave me a bunch of information and I said all right. Here's what we're GONNA do. So you're GonNa pay me this fee which is under market. But I'm going to do it if you can get me this. You've told me you have a professional photographer. I would like to have that person. Take pictures of me with your company logo in the background while I'm on stage and give those to me to use for my portfolio. I'd also like to know a very senior department head willing to serve as a reference for me for my future. Engagements the value of those additional. Things turned out to be not only more than the difference between what they paid me and market value but I went on to generate probably fifty times that in all of the referrals that I got from that one deal so they got what they needed which was a great speaker at an under market price. And I got what I needed. When you negotiate from your needs you can create that mutual win after you. Ask The tell me question. What's another one so I think I just previewed it but one of the questions I love is what do you need? You know. I think a lot of times people assume that they have to come in? It's not just us. Sometimes the person on the other side assumes that they're going to have to come in with a full suit of armor and demand demand demand when we asked people what they need. This question has an amazing way of kind of cutting through some of the some of the BS that you were talking about even in a situation where it's a car you know sale. I've got in before and said look you know. I know you're a human being and I knew a person you you're a person who's trying to support your family also right. I'm doing the same. So what do you need to get this done right? Here's what I need. I've told you my constraints. What do you need to show here to make this workable? And it's amazing. How when you do that it takes down some of the defensiveness and the person actually will give you a better deal or level with you about what it is. They need to show. This can work with a car dealer. It's also great working with the landlord during Corona virus. You know asking them what they need. Landlords have needs to. They may need not to have addictions they may need to show occupancy they may need to have some cash coming in the door even if it's not the full amount of the rent and so when you ask somebody what they need you get the keys to the kingdom so that you can then again find that target and hit it for a mutual win one of the things that I think people feel. They don't have the ability to do in negotiations that they see. Great negotiators do is keep their emotions out of it. They don't take it personally. You know what I mean that a really good negotiator is a good negotiator and doesn't let feelings get in the way. Yeah you know feelings are really important. it's interesting because I think a lot of times people assume that they need to make decisions based only on facts but actually research shows that for most of us. No matter how calm think we are emotions are how we make decisions you know. Advertising executives know this. They know that the way they can get people to spend their time and their money is by appealing to people's emotions. But you're right we don't want to get in the room and have our emotions get the best of us right so that we're not giving our best at the table. So here's how we do that. I one of the questions in the Mirror section asks people basically to write down how they feel. Because I've found that if you're feeling anxious and you write that down if you're feeling angry at somebody and you write that down you know if you grapple with before you get in the room rather than pretending you don't have emotions you're gonNA do much better. You'll feel calmer there's a way in which writing down what you feel ahead of time helps you release it so that then you can get to the table and you also you know what to do. We haven't really talked too much about tactics negotiating tactics that you hear a lot about an. I don't know where you stand. And which ones you use but but let me ask you about one. And that is the tactic of walking away. Walking away can be really effective when it comes from the right place for example. These are times when I might think about walking away. I'm really clear on what I need. And it seems likely that we're not GONNA be able to get there at least for right now or you know. Let's say I'm getting what I would call some really unproductive behavior from the other person. You know I help. People resolve conflicts in a lot of New York City courts. I've seen all sorts of interesting quote unquote offers for how to how to solve situations. If you get really really challenging behavior from somebody else you can also say you know what this isn't a productive conversation and you know when you're ready to come back to the table and have something that's productive. I'm ready to talk for now. I'm taking a break so if your needs aren't being met if somebody's unproductive or if they're emotionally overwhelmed and just a last note on that right now during the pandemic. I'm finding that even very rational people can get emotionally overwhelmed and so sometimes I don't know that I would call it walking away. I think I would call it taking a break. Sometimes taking a break and letting somebody sit on. Something can be really helpful. So I get that I get the taking a break thing but but I've often heard it argued that the strategy of getting up and walking away is telling the other person. Hey you're the deal is walking out the door. Maybe you need to change your mind a little bit here and that that it's a tactic to get people to. It's like a slap in the face that the deals about to end and that very often the deal changes so in other words. You know saying I'm going to walk out. As a way of communicating the window is closing my preference would simply be to say instead of getting up and storming out I like to be transparent and let people know what their window is. You know like we have another couple of days that this proposal can work. And after this time it's not gonNa work anymore or I have a limited amount of time today. I've got more minutes and after that time. You know I'm going to have to move on to my next meeting. It is absolutely true. You know what you're talking about is called scarcity and when people realize that your time or your money is a scarce resource. They may well be prompted to act. I am not a huge fan of tactics like getting up and walking away from the table. I am a trust negotiator. I have found that when I level with my clients when I level with the people that I'm negotiating with when I simply tell them that something won't work for me and we need to try again or that we're running out of time for one reason or another. If I do that from a place of integrity I find that not only do I land that deal but then people know they can trust me and they come back for the next one and when I say I need something or we're out of time it's not a tactic. It's the truth. And how do you deal with jerks? I would imagine working in the New York City Court system that that you come across the occasional jerk at and that brings with it a whole set of other problems. I suspect. Because you're you're you're dealing with a big personality problem more than your may be necessarily dealing with the problem supposedly hand how. What's your what's your attitude towards morons. You know everybody is capable of having a bad day. I think is a is a good way to put it. But you're right I've dealt with some really challenging behavior and in fact in the book I talk about a situation where somebody said. You Know Alex. I've got an idea for what we can do here today. You can blank blank and suffice it to say he was not suggesting. I read his proposal or water his plants. Okay so we get somebody who's really made an unproductive suggestion and my tactic for that. Is I simply look at the person and say how does blanking your blank help us here today? Right I've had people say something like I'm going to flip the table over and I simply look at them and say how is flipping the table over going to help you achieve your goals today. Deadpan I don't react I keep it calm and I'm telling you that a lot of the time when I ask people how that unproductive behavior is going to help them reach their goals. They can take a moment and they can recollect themselves sometimes. That's enough to bring them back from the brink but when it's when it's not just a tactic like I'm going to turn the table over but it's just a jerk in general who who says look on. This is how it's going to go and they try to intimidate you. How do you? How do you handle that? How do you? How do you respond to look honey? This is how it's going to go. I did have somebody call me honey and I simply laughed and said Hey. That's my husband's name for me so you're going to have to pick another I use a lot of humor. When I'm responding to people I try first of all to stay calm and beat the grownup no matter what and where I need to I simply revert back to. That's not going to help us here today. What you've told me is you know. Here's what your goals are and Here's what I'm telling you. We need to get there and I repeat and Rinse and repeat as necessary. I stay calm. Sometimes I'll even summarize what they say if they're going off on a ridiculous rant. I'll say hold on a second. I just WanNa make sure I heard you right and I will repeat some of the ridiculous rant. It's amazing how sometimes when people have left their senses. They hear their own. Words played back to them and it's kind of sobering so I stay calm. I summarize I repeat. That behavior is not gonNA help them get to the goal that they want and then if it persists I simply say thanks for your time and when you're ready to have a more productive discussion give me a call. Well I admire your thoughtfulness and self control. I imagine that's come with a lot of practice. I've been speaking with Alexandra Carter. She's a clinical professor of law and director of the Mediation Clinic at Columbia Law School and she's author of the book. Ask for more ten questions to anything. And you'll find a link to that book at Amazon in the show notes for this episode. Thanks Alex all right. Well thanks so much. I hope this was helpful.

I'm sure you're going to do today. Every day of your life is walk. It's how humans and a lot of other creatures get around all the time and you probably don't think a lot about your walking but it turns out to be pretty fascinating in ways. You probably don't realize here to fill you in on. That is Shane. O'meara he is a professor of experimental brain research at Trinity College in Dublin and author of the Book in Praise of walking a new scientific exploration. Shane thank you. Mike is Great to be here so you don't have to think for very long about how important walking is to us as individuals and as a society as a whole but we really don't ever stop and think about it. Perhaps we should. That's absolutely correct. I think walking is one of these things that we overlook in everyday life and we forget or perhaps don't know that it is wonderful effects in our brains wonderful affects our bodies and wonderful effects on our society at large well so dive in and tell me how so be and maybe start with how is walking benefit to society at. How does my walking benefit society at large so think about walking is opposed to any other mode of transport? If you're a bicycle you're traveling at speed. It's hard to catch. Somebody's is if you're in a car. It's the same kind of thing walking lows you are affords you the opportunity to have kind of random interactions with people that you would Wouldn't otherwise be able to have a those kinds of things. Bill Social Trust within society and Societies. That have lots of walking. I tend to be societies where there's a greater degree of interpersonal trust. Isn't that interesting yes it is. It is quite remarkable. We shouldn't be really perplexed by this. If we consider how humans came to walk. We're bipedal apes were unique in the in the the fact that we walk around onto limbs on our two legs but are walking evolved in a social context. We can conquer the world when we walked out of Africa. One hundred thousand or so years ago. one guy with a spear going off into the into the book was in small migratory tribes it was in groups. And we're astonishingly sensitive to the cues that we give off when we're walking just Far You one thing. That's really remarkable if you put somebody in a brain scanner and you just played them. The sounds of footsteps at the alter parts of the brain light up but soul to the social parts of the brain were tuned to the noise that others make whether it signals threat or other things. How how did walking come about I mean was it just because we have people have to move and then if he can't move you can't really exist? I mean what why? Why do we walk away? We walk in. How did we get here? So that's one of those enormous questions and it would take quite a while to unpack so I try and give you some quick answers so let let's step back from walking for moment and ask a question that you've probably never considered which is why do you have a brain or put another way by problems having a brain cell for you. So trees don't have brains a hedges. Don't have brains and day organisms that are stuck in one place like an enemies. Cnn enemies are sea squirts. Don't have brains. So this gives us a very important clue having a brain selves particular problem on its solves the problem of movement. The reason we have a brain is to get around safely in the world so we WANNA find food. We're GONNA find shelter. We want to find mates. We want to avoid predators all of those kinds of things and movement of in animals in that context all lows had hundreds of millions of years ago and it evolved on the ocean floor We now know for example for genetic studies that Linda animals our wandering around on the ocean floor about four hundred million years ago so this is something the reaches deep back into time and something that is with this rise up to the present. I think it's interesting. What you said at the beginning about how Y- has a social component to it. And when I think about back to you know not that far long ago that their kids walk to school more there was just more walking and we also consequently new our neighbors and today. It's you know everybody's driven everywhere and and we don't know our neighbors. We don't know a lot of people that we would've otherwise known maybe ten twenty years ago. Yeah those random conversations that you have when you're on fish for you meet the familiar stranger everyday. Those kind of disappeared and we have actually engineered walking out of our everyday lives. So if you consider one hundred twenty years ago the so the turn of the twentieth century around nineteen hundred. The average working man in London walked somewhere between eight and twelve miles a day and then cars came along. The world changed and the average person now. In a in a high income societies he walks somewhere around about four and a half thousand steps a day so really not much at all whereas hunter gatherers. Who are living in South America for example or in Africa walk the order of about ten or twelve kilometers today and they have astonishingly great heart health as a result. Walking has gotten a bit of a bad rapid it's kind of the Lug man on the totem pole of exercise. Like you could really exercise. But at least you could walk because it if you don't do anything Just walk around the Block. Because it's something it's not much but it's something. Yeah absolutely so a again. Some movement is better than no movement. We know this For certain on more movement again is better than some movement so we should be moving much more than we are. Now if you're exercising are using walking to to exercise really needs to be walking at quite a clip You know sort of a speed than said causes you to have difficulty talking to another person. Having difficulty listened to a podcast Sort of let's say five and a half to six kilometers an hour or something of that kind of order. I E should be breaking into a kind of a light sweat in the end. You should be doing that for about thirty minutes four or five times a week. Minimum walking is is the form of movement that we evolved to engage in from very early in life from around about a year year and a half of age. All the way through two are eighties. Nineties amber capable of cranking Twelve Fourteen fifteen thousand steps a day every day more or less with these on. This has breeding positive feedback effects on the brain body at large and a stock kind of movement. That I think we really need to to try and capture back into our lives again and so what are those benefits to our brain body so it there's really kind of two ways of of of thinking about how the benefits arise so when you decide to walk. There's a feed forward signal. Command signal comes from the brain instructing your limbs to get up and get moving and when you walk I get feedback signals so molecules are produced that comeback in the circulate freely in the brain and body set benefit the functions of both. So when. You're moving your senses are sharpened Acuity for hearing for example goes up a little. Your vision improves the little. And you're exercising parts of the brain that were previously quiet. Which really do need regular outings? So one of the problems. Of course that happens with aging is frailty and lost balance and we now know through. Many studies does a one of the easiest ways to overcome the problems of frailty and loss of balance as you get older literally to put on your shoes and get lots of walking in over surfaces that are little bit bit demanding that require you to rebalance yourself consistently on by the same token getting out and moving at stops blood pooling in the of lower extremities in the limbs and you get these wonderful molecules known as Maya kinds which are molecules produced by by muscle cells at help build at the The blood vessels the body and also helped build. The Fabric of the brain is walking walking and me. Can you improve? Can you get better at it? Do we just get better naturally because we walk a lot or could we get better at it? You do of course get better out at you. You got that. Herodotus as you transitioned from being on four limbs at the age of ten or eleven or twelve months What we know is the when infants. I start to walk quite clumsy. But they make what's called an obligates transition. You just do this. You don't have to be trained to walk the genes in your in your spinal cord another parts of the Under the brain make this demand view. And when you start to walk at first you are not for you. Go to you fall regularly. We know from from studies of infants learning to walk that they fall as many as seventeen times an hour and they walk. Maybe two thousand three thousand steps in our so. This is something that has Is is intensely demanding on you and you don't become a skilled walker at that age. Punky put in something like six months or so of continuous practice. And if you're frail you know for example if you've ended up in hospital and ended up in your back for a long time you lose some of the ability to walk. Some of muscular control has gone now you lose muscle volume use muscle strength and you have to build it back up again. This is one of the jobs of of rehabilitation after surgery is is to get you moving in a way that allows you not to follow over when you're moving. Well one interesting change in the way people walk today is a lot of people walk while their neck is bent looking down at their phone absolutely day. Of course we're lots of scare stories about people stepping off the the age of the sidewalk and getting hit by cars and things like that at first. But what we now know. Actually quite remarkably is the with a little bit of of practice your peripheral vision actually improves When you're walking around like that there's a really easy way to demonstrate this if you ever fly through skip all airport in Amsterdam. They've done something really clever in the old part of the airport where the railway station has They have mental. Pillars are pillars. That are I guess under so years old and walkers were kind of bumping into these so they've they've Tiles that reflect a little flanking these pillars and people catch them in the peripheral vision while they're walking. Don't bump into the many more what's happening is you're training your peripheral vision if you if you focus your vision on this thing that's sitting in your hand. That's quite a dangerous thing to do. So the brain being a clever device can reallocate a little bit of attention to your peripheral vision so that you can engage engage in a collision avoidance. What is it about walking? That you think is most interesting would to you. What what are you find really fascinating that maybe people don't know about walking? Let me pick on two areas. One is the walking is possibly the most effective boost to creativity that we know of you. So psychologists are clever and a little bit evil cylinder. Want to test your creativity. They bring you to the lab on the hand you a succession of of objects Might be a rising then might be paper clip or whatever it happens to be in the they tell you come up with many uses for this object as you can in the next thirty seconds and you might come up with seven or eight uses the give you a succession of much of find. Is that people vary in their ability to come up with all motor called. Alternative uses on people who engage in what's known as knowledge work So work with your brain rather than with your hands tend to be very good at these kinds of tasks however if instead of just getting people to do the task a you get them to walk for eight or ten minutes beforehand but you find. Is that the number of alternative uses that people generate about doubles which is really quite something and there's also another remarkable effect a it works independent of age so I very clever A group in in Japan conducted executives experiments. Which had originally been done on that college students and did a in elders people in their seventies and compared with the group in their twenties They found walls. That the the the people in their seventies who went for ten minutes walk before generating the alternative use came up with about twice as many ideas as the seated. Twenty year olds So it gives a boost to creative idea production and I think we kind of know this actually because you know if you've got a difficult problem to solve gopher walk I we we kind of know this. It's a good way focusing our thoughts around the thing we want to solve. So so that's one thing I'd say. So the the other area I point to is the walking and Mental. Health are remarkably tied up together in ways that people don't quite appreciate so there are lots and lots of long to tutorials studies now looking at the relationship between the number of steps that people take every day over eight ten twelve years and the likelihood that that for example they might succumb to major depressive disorder which is a a really terrible problem particularly in the Western world and one recent study for example of of about thirty five thousand. Australians showed that the risk of succumbing to major depressive disorder in a group without psychiatric impairment. So they are not starting with any psychiatric problems falls by about twelve fifteen or so percent in the people who are walking compared to the people who are not so. There's a kind of a hidden benefit to taking extra steps every day in terms of its ability to act as a kind of behavioral preventive for depression. Well there's always been that you know that phrase of I'm going to go outside walking clear my head or you know get out of here and go get some fresh air and go walk to to you. Know kind of reset my brain. Yeah IT'S A. There's a lot of wisdom in that phrase people I think don't quite appreciate just. How good a walk would make feel again. Lots of other studies have shown if you can put some nature into the walk. Some trees and plants or courses a little bit of wildlife even just insect life for or something like that are barred. Lifetime proves again even more. What do we know if anything about the difference between walking outside in walking on a treadmill? This is one of these interesting paradoxes. We know an awful lot about the physiology of walking from treadmills. So you can bring people in. You can split the treadmill belts you can make one leg run a little bit. Oddly compared to the other he can hook people up to electrodes. And things like that so we know a lot about that and we've learned an awful lot about how the spinal cord controls movements All these other things and but what we know for sure is that getting people to walk outdoors in nature where they're actually feeling an nature on their faces with the sun. The rain the wind or whatever where they can see other life around that has a mark effect in terms of of how good they feel in the moment. I so there's the there's little doubt that walking good for you even if it is on a treadmill if you can't get any other form of Walkington please do that. I if you want to get an extra balls get outdoors. Put your coat on if you have to or whatever you'll feel benefit of it. You said at the beginning of our conversation that and I think this is important that the kind of walking you do matters that in other words taking kind of a leisurely stroll is not going to give you the benefits of a brisk walk. Yes certainly for heart health and but I think we should be thinking about walking in terms of of different types of walking in the purpose that you're engaging in for that kind of walking so I do a lot of writing for example by a dictation and I do it out and walking a dictate from bullet points account. Walk fast when I do that kind of walk. I their Social Walkin Log with a friend or glowed for a welcome exam which is again quite different type of walking another's walking with purpose to the shops to pick up food or whatever it happens to be so walking serves lots and lots of different purposes and it will be nice if we had lots of different words for these things. But I don't think we really do. I think we kind of have to think of us. Walking for problem. Solving walking for social purposes are for social engagement walking. Because we're going to get food Happens to be. There's many different types and I think in choose of Lee. We know this. It's we I don't think we have good labels for these different types of walking. Well who knew and I think it's interesting to talk about something so so pedestrian as walking and but there is a lot to. It has been Shane. O'meara he is a professor of experimental brain research at Trinity College in Dublin. And the name of his book is in praise of walking a new scientific exploration. There's a link to the book at Amazon in the show notes. It's a good idea from time to time to remember that. If your computer has a camera hackers could be watching you through it. It's a terrifying thought and here are a few steps. You can take to protect yourself from Norton. Antivirus don't click on suspicious. Attachments especially sites offering free downloads of music. Tv shows or videos that could activate the camera. Don't keep PC's with. Webcams in your bedroom and remind family members not to do anything in front of a Webcam that they don't want the whole world to see. Secure Your Wireless Connection. Make sure it's connection is protected with unique password. Be Really careful about accepting technical help would be. Hackers have been known to ingratiate themselves with people online offering help and then rigging the Webcam so they can spy through it look for the indicator light on external webcams. You'll usually see a red light when the camera is on in the end. Hacking experts agree. The low tech. Solution is your best bet. Cover the lens with tape or a post it note or disabled camera when you're not using it especially if you're on public. Wifi and that is something you should know the best way to support. This podcast is really simple. It takes just a second it simply to share it with someone you know. I'm Mike carruthers. Thanks for listening today to something you should know.

Let's play that shall we sure dana birthday twenty nineteen in three to some of you may have heard of the british words schlemiel and shula mazal before most of you may only be familiar with them as nonsense words from the opening of the nineteen seventies sitcom laverne and shirley early but they're not at all nonsense words not only do they have specific definitions but as with many words they have a deeper meaning technically the word schlemiel means a fool not just a fool though but often a very likable person who just seems to always be doing foolish things without realizing using it a shula mazal however would it be defined as someone prone to misfortune but again. It's more than that for swell mazal. Bad luck talked to seems to happen upon them. I'm more classic definition of she'll meal for moslems this wallace. He'll models toast always falls butter side down. I shall meal always but as both sides of his toast. Perhaps my favorite way to define these words. It's through an old story. There are three people sitting around the at a dinner party. The she'll meal spills the soup. The shula mazal has a soup spilled all over him and the third person the dopp is just sits there saying oh what a shame one of the beauties of yiddish is that many words are from the sole. One word offers you an explanation nation of not just an object emotion but a whole feeling for example as i'm describing and defining these terms for you. I have no doubt you're saying yeah. I get get it. I know people like this or worse. You may be saying he's describing me now. There's nothing wrong with she'll meals and shalah's they're often often wonderful people but frequently by happenstance sometimes by actions they fall into these categories ever watch tv series seinfeld. Jerry is a real meal georgia's no doubt shlomo eisele and kramer elaine well. They're obviously dopoulos. The entire your show all eleven seasons of it can be summarized in three words so why am i again pontificating and boring you with my limited knowledge of yiddish here on the airline pilot guy well. It's for a celebration a celebration of a friend. I only got to meet this year but who i'm so happy to be able to call my friend now understand that i want to make this clear. My friend is an amazing guy but it often seems if it weren't for bad luck he'd have no look by definition that's shemozzle but even with all of that he is amazing and has overcome so much to get to where he is. Today he grew up in a very rough and tumble town brockton massachusetts but unlike so many others from there he fought his way out of it and eventually became a captain for a major airline but even that wasn't without its struggles. Yes i'm talking about my friend captain. Dana truly terrific guy so kind so caring bearing and so genuine but what lucky has if he spills a beer. It's going to be on his brand new computer keyboard. If a microphone goes bed it's going to be his and not only that the lifetime warranty won't apply if a newly purchased boat is going to have the wrong propeller shafts for the engines. It's going to be his boat. If there's a scheduling glitch be training flying or whether delays it affects him. If it disruptive passengers flying somewhere it's going to be on data's flight and if an electrical issue is going to occur well he's going to be the pilot in command. Yes dana shula mazal which is never anyone's fault but he proves a bad luck like that can be overcome. Dana has such resilience such amazing abilities that it doesn't get him down. It only makes him better. He smiles in perseveres through those challenges fights his way around them and only become stronger her. He's an example to all of us and i'm so happy to be able to met him this year and spend time getting to know him. I'm honored to be able to call my friend so happy birthday captain dana from all of us but especially from your maine man mike o'meara oma while i have to give it that's a true and i'm gonna go away from the loa. Get and i'm gonna bring it all way. Through my lungs wow how absolutely amazing he so right and a lot of waterways and i have to say the dont among is thank you in yiddish the mica that was amazing and so nice to meet you make it do. I consider you a very very very close friend in a fantastic person as well. Thank you very nice of him to put that together for yes absolutely and he so it's true i couldn't. I mean who can have forced me but yeah you're right. I mean it's just i just get through. It and you know i'm fortunate other ways. I have a friend of mine. That's has had to engine failures is first couple of years is a captain tonight. Knock knock on wood. I have to deal with that so but yeah <hes> it's been fun. Okay well a part of your own. Sorry stuck. I don't think we had the chance to say it but happy birthday from the rest -solutely thank you know man aww i have at least somebody else's birthdays around now too so anything soon soon <hes> very very very soon so like in the four days virgo hewlett and we share that in common with both virgo the virgin. You're flying for the wrong airline now. I know you got to fight for kazan virgos the tendency of virgos to be very very picky picky picking that explains so much. Doesn't it jeff it does it. I like everything perfect. If it's not lining up perfectly god forbid i do too and that's why i chose you all to be my co-host. Choose me. I was just happened. It'd be happenstance and that's not true and anyway <hes> so. Did you do something special for your birthday. Yeah i did not work. I actually worked the system. I was supposed to work on my birthday but for me that's a national holiday and so i was brought up with the very strong heritage not in a birthday ism so always celebrate birthdays pretty hard so i decided that i wouldn't head and did what's called a personal drop and it actually worked out. We had coverage even on a saturday so i was supposed to work the twenty first second third and fourth actually birthday in august. I'm in drop that so i was able to join us seven total of us <hes> five acme one non <hes> <hes> acme in to not accurate one united in a private pilot on a fantastic four day venture odyssey through the <hes> alabama north carolina tennessee in north georgia mountains and i said alabama has mountains. Yes they have a mountain chita chia chia which is the highest point now alabama and what a beautiful place. They have a restaurant overlooking the bali in the valley over there too. It's talladega national forest which is where talladega raceway for nascar fans is located so we could see that it's a beautiful area and so we we had four days of absolute bliss on the motorcycles <hes> including tail the dragon chair holy skyway moon channels twenty eight for anybody knows those <hes> and the best part about it is. I'll drink to that yup best part. What about it was hanging out with with seven great guys <hes> and you know a lot of times. We get people like that together. The tends to be a little bit of drama. There was absolutely no drama whatsoever. We we all got along and we all wrote great together except for they put me in charge of being in the lead again so <hes> because i just know the area so i've i've have done <hes>. I actually just this past trip. <hes> total of fifty over fifty thousand miles on a motorcycle riding in of their fifty thousand least <hes> thirty five to thirty eight thousand miles of it has all been through that entire area some very demand and i've got to say very fortunate fortunate to have such beautiful great writing right here in the southeast actually some of the best writing in the country so that's what i did on my birthday for the four days and that's why i missed you guys. <hes> my recording to me like that was worth worth missing the show for that. I'd say so <hes> hates it missed. You guys thought about you guys. <hes> we actually <hes> i know i couldn't i thought at one point i was gonna be able to join at least to say alone that just wasn't going to happen <hes> better just to concentrate on having thought i did and then so i picked up eight three day trip. If i had not done so i would have been off from <hes> the twenty first of august the nineteenth of september <hes> <hes> but i did pick up a three day. <hes> tuesday wednesday thursday trip and i have to say is the first trip this summer that i had no issues so is a very easy three day trips three two three three lakes first day to day relax a third day in done it was a it was just keep it that way.

We can share a stein ought to fall asleep in our cops is probably going to kill me but you know it probably will what the heck is really nasty. You know gone just talking about the time i was thinking should've moved my vacation to that week that we could have gone over but that's kind of stupid on my oh well <hes> b before we move on. There was one other thing. I wanted to mention that i'd be remiss from not mentioning aviation wise in. That's a very important event that happiness. They and i don't don't see any way that we're talking about it. We are going to talk about okay all right all continue okay very good <hes> um. Let's see stephanie. Yes jeffrey one of you been up to well. I do have some aviation stuff to talk about how i on saturday took a little trip up north about <hes> but five hundred eightyish miles north of here. There's this little town called toronto. You may have heard of it familiar. 'em in our country. No it's in our country. Did you need you impossible. Yes yes yes. You have to have to take your passport there too. They're quite friendly but yes. That's requirement thick and we know somebody that lives up there. You may may remember this this <hes> friend of ours who lives with their her name is liz piper our producer kind enough to host me for just over a day and we actually went out to the <hes> called the canadian national expo might be eating was correctly <hes> and do big yearly fair exhibition type type deal and they also have the canadian international air show that happens right along the lakefront there in toronto so we spent the day looking at watching <hes> displays from a couple of different <hes> <hes> demonstration teams get to that a second we also were joined by stephen i've e- so that was really cool that he had the day off and was able to come up and join us for that <hes> interesting airshow because <hes> chance to see a couple of demonstration teams. I had not seen before. You're that included the technically. I have seen the red arrows but i think they've really only ever done kind of fly buys a farm bureau and <hes> the <hes> various events. We've been to in the UK so it was nice to see them. <hes> put on kind of their full show in demonstration and we also saw the <hes> <hes> <hes> canadian forces snowbirds. That was a lot of fun. The radio is actually opened the show on saturday and then the snowbirds close the show and then in between there all kinds ends of various <hes> aircraft to to take in. I think a yak fifty <hes> couple of eight tonnes mig fifteen the airbus a four hundred m there was a demonstration from <hes> helicopter <hes> search and rescue team team. They were pulling jumping into the water and pulling people back out of the water. I'm sure the watering lake ontario is quite chilly time of year. Two or any time of year hasn't really <hes> it. Yeah i would not want to be one of those yeah i like. I like the water in my lake. It's still nice you know balmy eighty two degrees fahrenheit at least <hes> and it was just a great day. I mean the planes were great but also great fun to spend the day with liz very appreciative of her hospitality polity in hosting me for the day and awesome deceased stephen ivy so that was a lot of fun had perfect weather to toronto really <hes> outdid itself with the kind of mid seventies mostly sunny really nice great fair food too little tiny donuts delicious the i'm not sure about the beer toys we ended up <hes> kind of standing in front of the beer tents because we tried a couple times to sit in the grass and watch the show but it seemed like everyone was kind kind of cranky because the seating area in the grass the walkway was in front of it so people will keep walking back and forth in front of people sitting there and stopping into in pictures. I mean you get blame them for that entirely and there was a lot of that going on a lot of like just the complaining and griping and whatnot so we decided we don't want. I know i was really very unconnected into. I suspect it may have been a lot of wealth toronto from just just tell us what you would drink yeah so the only we ended up standing in front of this beer stand and the only thing they had on offer for beer was couriers. There's a bankrupt recruiters. Oh my gosh i had what is wrong with you. Canadians majoring it didn't they have like <hes> what what are some nice examples of canadian beer ulsan molson and labatt. I yeah nope there's the beer they may have had another. I think they had some winds <unk> stephen. I just wanted beer ended up drinking a few quarters a piece jason. I saw that picture of the two of you drinking coors thinking. What are they doing. It must be out of it. I mean we would have had to. I think there was other stuff for sale elsewhere in the exhibition but we would have had to walk. You know quite a ways away. We had a nice spot the all the friendly people are the beer drinkers standing in front of the beer stand. Yes yeah no complainers there. Okay excellent excellent <hes> all right anything else stuff or move on now. I think that was it that was kind of the beginning of our labor. Day weekend came back for the remainder of it and just back to work this week. I will be similarly on vacation next week so might be interesting trying to things together for next week. Show okay well well. We'll figure it out do our best scuba diving chilton steph <hes> service on the no we can. I can get you certified once you open the open space in my room. Nobody join me. I've oregon instructor down with me. I can assist yes. This is justices vacation that he is planned for us so elsewhere but per shaked me. I'm going to go down with dana stay. He's going to teach me how to scuba dive. Yeah better off on your vacation. That's true. I didn't think i mean i don't i don't think of it in that way so no no completely booth onic ex now we were. We were <hes> just fooling around there so to speak <hes> ah right <hes> let's see speaking last show i believe yeah in the midst of the show kept getting <hes> telephone calls from acme trying to assign me trips green slips and stuff and i turned them all down <hes> but one opportunity came up after the show <hes> they wanted <hes> they had a couple of flights sir a couple of trips to <hes> retirement flights for <hes> the mcdonnell mcdonald douglas eighty eight. MD eight airplanes and one of them i <hes> well i actually put in for both of them ended up getting one and i flew ooh ship nine eight four which is november nine eight four delta lima. I don't know that's kind of an odd number and letter for acme but anyway <hes> flew that out to san bernardino now. I have done one of these earlier last year. <hes> ship nine twenty six and i said i'd never never do this again. But that was on regular rates <hes> this was on double pay and green slip pay and this instead of doing it all at one whack like flying it out there taking the to our van drive to the los angeles international airport and then immediately getting on another airplane dead heading all the way back to atlanta <hes> which is as you know i think it was worth like eight half hours <hes> a lot of time in the airplane and it just wore me out and that's why i'm not gonna do that again but this one had us getting into. LAX was on a saturday. They didn't have any flights that left los angeles right away so they could legally <hes> make us wait until the eh redeye flight at ten thirty at night so <hes> had a nice layover in los angeles at the airport and then the next day i was supposed to be on the early flight in the morning to head back to atlanta but i wanna hadn't <hes> moved it to a little bit later that had flight so that i could watch the belgian grand prix on a sunday morning so worked out to be a nice little vacation but not really a vacation but <hes> kind of a fun trip ship ninety four <hes> <hes> let's see total hours seven thousand two hundred no seventy two thousand eight hundred eighty three <hes> and total landings endings fifty two thousand seven hundred ninety so i guess the the fifty two thousand seven hundred ninetieth or however you would say that was my the last landing in ship ninety four most likely must they changed their mind him bring it back <hes> but <hes> so at acme airlines as we are <hes> retiring one or two every month or two. I'm not sure exactly what the number is and they have slowed that down by the end of the month by the into the <hes> the end of the year and that was five weekend the but they you know that as you know <hes> that number is fluctuating just like the dc nine's when they were retire and the seven twenty-seven and the ten eleven fleets <hes> they they they come out with these schedules and they say that they're going to be all gone by this point but that's all you know that's just supposition <hes> it's all based on the number of airplanes that were getting <hes> deliveries of new airplanes coming into to replace that seat capacity <hes> but regardless <hes> took one of them into the desert and another airline american airlines <hes> who flew a huge number of mad dogs ended up flying their last. I think they had like two dozen <hes> to go that. They all retired <hes> yesterday. Yesterday i believe the fourth of september were there last revenue flights and i think they're all in roswell in the desert not roswell georgia but roswell new mexico <hes> except except one. I believe they're still one out there. That is going to be used for de icing training or something for the next two or three weeks. I don't know why would they do that. At-bat anyway <hes> so <hes> was looking through and this is one of those hashtags that you should look for on twitter hashtag super for eighty sendoff lots of good stuff in there about a lot of these last flights that they performed on the mad dog over an american airlines including one when the that i have a little bit of audio from where the captain gets on and addresses the passengers and this is a dallas fort worth to chicago chicago o'hare flight <hes> the flight number super. Excuse me flight number. Eighty normally flight number eighty is dallas to london. I believe for for american airlines and this one was dallas to chicago o'hare for the special last flight of this aircraft and let me play the little snippet of audio that the captain the PA that captain gave to the <hes> customers. Led glad to have you with us. We appreciate all you guys that love the MD. We all love it. That's why i've been on it. Since nineteen eighty seven not to brag that i've been on the airplane longer than some of you alive just tip my hat to all you youngsters <hes> have about twenty one thousand hours on it which is about two point four years of live two point four years on this airplane eight hundred eighty two days equal to about twenty one thousand hours and greg probably have to pry my hand from the yoke okay and we get the chicago because i don't wanna leave understand my extra point on my head to learn french it anyway. It's great to have you onboard. We try to make this possible probably festivities in chicago when we get there and <hes> so glad to shore on this last passenger applied for is on the eighty cava said they for me have been dragged dreading this for so long because i've had so much fun on the serpent and thanks to all of you who have hey for my mortgage my cars my kid's college graces. I've been on this since nineteen eighty seven except for a couple of years. It's been a great career. I could walk away today be happy at five more years ago unfortunately the MD doesn'ts this fine <hes> many if you probably know was the last one to roll on his simply line and a long beach as well as the NBA eighty eight and then a center native will put it to bed in in roswell as we take off fort worth on the rive departure south broadway one eight lamp dallas on the left. Turn out to the right fly out of fort work. I'll be back with you. Take off once we get up to recruiting house to prepare for wow twenty one thousand our i thought i had a lot of time in the mad dog <hes> but he's like a lot of the guys at acme airlines dana who initially were trained as a first officer and they stayed on it long enough to switch over to the lessee on. That's kind of sounds like somebody now now. Get <hes> right here with us. Deidre <hes> and we have a lot of people like that <hes> at acme. That did the same exact thing so. I'm sure that many of the folks at acme. We have close to that <hes> number of hours on the airplane. I only have twelve thousand on it. I'm right behind you for my seventeen and a half half year so yeah there you go far behind you yeah. It's <hes> you know you mentioned nine eighty four in ninety four. I flew just two what two days before you took it as a matter of fact it. Will you know i can relate to this captain the way he feels because when we arrived in atlanta atlanta from birmingham on that very short flight on ninety four <hes> maintenance came up met the aircraft and he said yeah this is going to desert this weekend i and how ironic is it that that i knew that in jeff came up in well jeff actually flew the airplane to the desert of course very jealous jealous of that. I've never done that but <hes> anyways i teared up and took a lot of photographs <hes> knowing that that was the last time i would ever by ship nine eighty four so <hes> it's it's humbling because this aircraft has been around for very long time. It's been a very reliable very very much. The workhorse of american sleep our fleet <hes> and <hes> in my opinion probably one of the most <hes> most long lived other than the five seven. I think <hes> aircraft in in most most anybody sleep <hes> i think it's outlasted the length of the seven to at this point. Maybe i don't know it's it's close. It's pretty close. I think i i mean we're talking. <hes> this came into service in eighty seven so that's what thirty two years of service <hes> for us so far and it's going to be longer than that <hes> so in american is <hes> a very close to data added an exceedances of that and yeah the the l. ten eleven wasn't around that long dc ten was in round as long some five seven. I think is the only crafted in in some five hundred seventy six or exceeds of that meza. It has been <hes> out there for quite some time. <hes> mica asks. He's in our live have chat room. Were you able to fly that trip in shirtsleeves or were you required to wear your uniform and when we do very flights such as these retirement fights mica it is not a requirement for us to wear our uniform and normally i do <hes> but this time i decided i would just wear the kind of clothes that i would wear when i go the training and so i was wearing khakis and a long-sleeve button-down shirt and kind of felt weird especially walking up to the gate and the gate agent looks at me and goes may help you. I said yeah i'm here to fly this airplane to san bernardino and she said oh okay i showed him children my ID and stuff so but it just felt weird flying the airplane with gray hair in the mustache that just gives you that instant credibility shouldn't shouldn't need your ID. You could just get mighty by the way you've done one year and four months on boards. It's not have i yeah okay seems like a dedicated yeah. It's like the irony of it. Of course i've mentioned many times was the it was the airplane. I was never gonna fly. They were fluid has a first officer and <hes>. I thought it was just going to be a quick. Stop before i jump back over to the boeing fleet the seven thirty seven but after i started flying it i'm thinking you know. I don't know why people always give the airplanes such a bad time. It's really not that bad and in fact it's kind of fun to fly and then i started getting seniority on your knees and i went oh i liked the seniority thing i've been hearing folks talk about this for many many years and i never really understood it. It's one of those things where you don't really understand it until you get it. You have it and then you go aha or it's taken away from me right or you or you give it up on your own volition dana yes he s i know so <hes> but anyway yes and you already is a very nice thing and so here i am seventeen and almost half year <hes> seventeen and a half years later still on it and i kind of felt you know i kind of identify with this captains. PA when he said hey i have five years left. Unfortunately the mad dog doesn't and we're we're still hoping or i am that i'll be able to somehow work a miracle and stay on the motley whether it be the MD ninety go whatever <hes> before i retire but you know if i have to move to something else will move to something else. Well you know in. I i have to say jeff. She just reached out and grabbed your heart. I mean once you started flying got got used to it and and realize how great of an airplane it truly is and everybody's nay saying it. It's because not a boeing some don douglas. It's just not you know it. It's just not same so it's very idiosyncratic and it <hes> it's <hes> it's hard to describe but once when you first start flying going like what what is going on here is like it doesn't feel the same as most airplanes have <hes> hydraulically actuated control surfaces and and <hes> it because you're you know you're activating control tabs to move the control surfaces and be like a big one seventy two really when you think about it i know is he's like yeah kind of adapt to it. Your brain kind of understands what's going on then you go. Oh i kind of kind of enjoy this. This is very nice lot of fun. Hey you know i was kind of skeptical when he said that. This was the last <hes> a eighty that flew that <hes> went off the line in long beach. That can't be right because because you know we fly. MD eighty eights at acme and so i looked at the tail number of this airplane that this captain was on then flew that last dallas to chicago o'hare flight and sure enough it it was like delivered to TWA <hes> in january of nineteen ninety nine nine and i think our last <hes> m eighty eights were delivered before ninety nine. There were midnight last ones yeah now in the nineties. I think some of the last ones were like late nineties <hes> for us <hes> but <hes> yeah sure enough <hes>. TWA <hes> <hes> was absorbed by american and they ended up picking up these airplanes and yeah it was the last one that was off the assembly line at long beach airport airport so it was interesting i thought and made me and mike had mentioned regarding my comment about the mad dog eighty in the mad dog doc <hes> <hes> eighty eight <hes> that the seven that it has not outlasted the seven three seven. I actually would say that it has because this is the variant the seven three seven one hundred two hundred three hundred four hundred five hundred seven hundred eight hundred nine hundred <hes> those. I don't think any of those variance areance have lasted as long as let's say an. MD eighty eight as you see them saying like individual individual variance of seven three seven line. I would absolutely sleet greedy. Main man mike that has outlasted obviously because it's one thousand nine hundred fifty s design badly early sixties <hes> that was the seven three <hes> the initial seven thirty seven to that come out before the dc nine <hes>. I think it was right around the same time. <hes> i doubt say the dc nine is part of our family family it it <hes> it sure heritage shook just just the way it is d. c. nine right up through seven hundred seventy because really what we're flying a DC nine dash eighty eight d. c. nine dash ninety seven three seven seven three seven dash one hundred <hes> than the two hundred two hundred is around for quite a long time <hes> but i don't think anyone of the specific variants i've ever at outlasted the eighty series <hes> in specifically if you look at eighty one eight hundred eighty three and then the eighty eight <hes> series. I don't think that you'll find seven three seven speed discontent. Go ahead. The first dc nine entered airline service in nineteen sixty five according to a kapadia and let's see at the senators have been sixty three. I'm kierra as it hasn't lasted the says no one seven to know that is the fifty to fifty to seventy two those as long as sixty seven sixty seven seventy two initial model was launched in february nineteen sixty five lovers who knows somewhere around the same time i think nineteen sixty seven is what i'm saying yeah so well you know we can argue about this and the bar so why don't we continue the show here by <hes> moving off that subject to basically just wanted to mention the fact that we have been talking about it on and enough for quite some time the impending retirement of olive americans mad dogs and looks like now. They're pretty much all retired but we're still flying them. So if you're out there and you wanna fly on a mad dog acme is your ticket and speaking of tickets. That's actually that's not a very good segue because general electric aviation did not semi tickets but a to get a goody bag from from them. <hes> and i meant to put some pictures in here but i'll try to remember to put them in the show.

Let's start off with the first item in our news folder and this involves one of two to airlines that we're going to talk about on today's show who <hes> shutdown and basically disappeared supposedly and have now now reappeared midwest express announces airline relaunch at the milwaukee airport. It's making its way back to milwaukee. The midwest. I express brand will be in the air by the end of two thousand nineteen. The airline announced wednesday at milwaukee mitchell international airport in august midwest express entered into an agreement agreement with elite airways to provide flight operations for the midwest the elite airways aircraft with midwest express branding will fly to three destinations out out of the milwaukee airport cincinnati omaha nebraska and grand rapids michigan midwest express president greg are takase said the airline saw a serious need for service to these three cities based on historical data and feedback from the community we received input from many local businesses regarding their travel the needs and this feedback factored into our choice of initial destinations he said and <hes> midwest express operated from nineteen eighty four to two thousand thousand nine it was based in oak creek and operated from general mitchell international airport in two thousand ten the airline merged with frontier airlines and the midwest brand disappeared erred in twenty eleven. They were nationally recognized for nonstop service to midwestern cities great customer service comfortable seating and warm chocolate chip cookies for passengers. They were the doubletree hotel of airlines. I guess when we started. They didn't put that in the article. I decided then when we started talking to customers about what they wanted. Did we ask them. What are you looking for this. They rookies of course hot chocolate chip cookies. <hes> what i think because amazing to a lot of people is that the big seats weren't the first thing on everyone's list. It was convenient milwaukee county executive chris obey a ballet said the country is excited traveler. O the county is excited that travelers can get nonstop flights out of their hometown airport providing nonstop flights to key business destinations fills an important niche and we or if you're french niche and we couldn't be happier to welcome midwest express back home. Oh so little blurb about elite airways dana you've probably seen elite airways <hes> at least in one location melbourne. That's where i always see them. Yep <hes> they're flying out. RJ's and looks like they have their based in portland maine. I had no idea that elite airways was based in portland maine and as of august twenty sixteen the airline operates a fleet of one bombarded cr j one hundred new didn't even know there was such a thing five live bombarded as cr j two hundred aircraft both fitted with fifty passenger seats and five bombard. EA cr j seven hundred aircraft fitted with seventy seats. What's that was two thousand sixteen so <hes> three years ago so i'm sure they're fleet has changed a bit but <hes> anyway so that's great that they're coming coming back and more jobs for our wonderful listeners who are trying to get into the civil wild. Yes now if you're listening and you need a job flying job and you're in africa you can. Maybe put in your application with uganda. Uh-huh airlines they disappeared nearly twenty years ago will not disappear but they stopped operating almost twenty years ago <hes> after a delay two flights that lasted nearly twenty years uganda airlines has once again taken to the skies above africa restoring its status as the country's national carrier this is from CNN dot com commercial services resumed on tuesday with a flight from entebbe to nairobi in neighboring kenya at the airline hoped will usher in a profitable new era for the formerly debt ridden brand uganda airlines had its fleet of twin engine bombard RJ nine hundred regional jet airliners will soon connect act to destinations including dar-es-salaam in tanzania mogadishu in somalia and you by the way you pronounce announced that j UBA juba juba in south sudan <hes> more farther flung places will follow <hes> the airlines director of marketing and public there said as you cheated. You didn't read out her name. Bob moutoa rocky jennifer jennifer bomber rutan to rocky airlines directory yeah. You didn't have to see certain probably did. They're it just accept the name. I'm not going to try that. One services do the democratic republic of congo ethiopia rwanda some boboy ghana <hes> south africa and rwanda rwanda logo to run wanda twice as you just go around a silicon. Yes stomach cramps stomach cramps times anyway so that's apparently the revival of the brand originally founded by dictator idi amin in one thousand nine hundred ninety seven. There's history they were grounded in two thousand one amid financial difficulties on and their tail and <hes> logo is a secretary but it's not a rousselet what kind of bird i think it's the secretary but i don't know i think it's <hes> part of the <hes> flag of uganda <hes> okay. What does the secretary bird. It's supposed that tixx does about thirty audits. That's not very well. I had one hundred bad for a bird. Yeah i mean if it's only got you know some talents hunt and peck with <hes> okay. Hey i deserve the way for a moment. I'm sorry there are we definitely having the fresh baked cookies. Come back with them. Midwest west express sounds like well. I maybe maybe say definitively they were. The article said that i mean they. They <hes> that they mentioned the cookies they have. They have a picture of them. Wasn't that the airline people just love the yeah the the caption for the photo of these chocolate chip cookies. <hes> passengers can expect midwest expresses legendary chocolate chip cookies when they board a midwest express flight flight by the end of the year. Now that's according to alana watson. What does she know. I don't know maybe somebody told her when they were doing this news article that <hes> yeah. I guess we'll have to wait and see anybody out. There who flies midwest express can let us know if you got your hot chocolate chip cookie sad room now. They're gonna find a use of the MD mediates although i it's a gray is an accountant to bert bookkeeping bird pencils crowned crane. I'm afraid i three crowned crane. They got that confused. Yeah exactly sorry about that. I mean it's got kind of a reddish tail and crown on the i think they've taken taken some liberties. Perhaps with the it's more of a cartoon looking bird than a real circuitry but <hes> as partly will eagle like the body with crane link legs like a roadrunner <hes> a little bit. Have you ever seen a roadrunner in person. No i was amazed at how tiny they kind of are i was you know my whole childhood. I feel like i was lied to the roadrunner being giant colorful version and in real life. They're kind of these brown smallish birds they do run fast. You watch a little too much to make to make our well. Ah baby baby <hes> do okay moving on item. See who wants to tackle this one sure okay volunteers leaving at the jumping at the bit there. I'll be happy all continued getting tired tired of hearing me. Nobody wants to hear from. CNN CNN and on august thirtieth air canada has to pay fifteen thousand dollars lers to a couple because the word lift was not engraved on seatbelts in french francois. You're kidding me right. So what is lifting french. I have no idea bright lights and i don't know <hes> <hes>. Let's see what else they have to say here. <hes> recent complaint turn lawsuit however led to a windfall for travelers not the airline <hes> this week the federal court ordered air canada to pay more than fifteen thousand dollars or twenty one thousand canadian dollars and send formal apology letters to a french-speaking couple in ottawa for repeated heated language quality violations liver. LA the deficit the lawsuit concerned more than twenty two complaints is that <hes> michelle and linda <hes> the bodo nokia filed against the airline in two thousand sixteen. The couple complained that the word lift was engraved engraved on the seat belts in english but not in french they also alleged the french translations of the words exit and warning were in smaller characters english words and finally that got a french-language boarding announcement at the airport bless. You must foster enough. <hes> the air canada systemically violates the linguistic rights of francophones. They argued according to the judgement for the case since that's the word for lift as censor something like look at the <hes>. A sense is elevator elevator but it's lifting lift is well yeah but i now left as opposed to the verve. API EPG crew chat dana. You'll see what liz typed in there. You don't trust her as the resident canadian here so basically you must be of equal quality but above there's some order appeared as the wording of efficient languages act of canada so this is the actual law i suppose <hes> the purpose of this act is to ensure respect for french and english as the official languages of canada and ensure equality quality of status and equal rights and privileges as to their use in all federal institutions in particular with respect to their use in parliament or any proceedings legislative another smits one of they just put a little arrow would have to be an iro in english english on arrow in french. Yeah it has to be <hes>. What was the word that they use lingual polity of status so yes i instead of a word see we've circumvented this in the united states by not having an official language there there you go all right so did they ever is by the by the word is the verb is ever not elliott very okay. May may we there. We go just in case. You're wondering anyway who cares what the word is. I think this is ridiculous. Waste of lincoln in writing ninety run right in five different languages. You can have to put it in spanish well because that's not the two official languages of true. That's true so but i see in america now. Now there's going to be we don't have official language but everything you call anything or looking in in in SPN five languages nowadays <hes>. I don't think so it's a good point that you know you really should know something about the history of canada and how <hes> these two languages have come up side-by-side to know where some of these difficulties in complaints and in laws come into to get this ah official languages act of canada you look at the wording of this thing and that liz put in here for us and what the purpose of the act is to do and i it really really none of these paragraphs that are listed here in the show notes have anything to do in my opinion at all with you know putting a word the french word for lift on the seat belt buckle and has more to do with other things like legislative parliamentary proceedings administrative administration of justice justice communicating with or providing services to the public is about government stuff yeah the federal government. That kind of thing is it has nothing to do with you. Know safety on an airplane it does say advanced the equality advanced the equality of status of and use of the english and french languages with in canadian society eddie seems kinda vague. I was so interesting experience speaking of <hes> canada english and french and having just been in the toronto airport where announcements announcements are made in both english and french <hes> there was a glitch with the <hes> the display screens for the <unk> departures and arrivals <hes> throughout the airport. It was showing something from two. AM from the day prior so it had most of the same fleet numbers listed but all the gates were wrong so so they kept making these automated announcements for gate changes that were not cracked just kind of funny but for our particular flight it made the announcement only in french so about half the people in the boarding area like should we go to a nine or do we stay at a six and no one at the gate there moved so i was like i'm not going anywhere. We'll see what happens. I guess it worked out room. You weren't looking all the french. Speaking peoples sneaked away. I understood the announcement. Just think of any grammar points or anything doesn't mean not simple stuff. I can understand like well producer. Liz doesn't make a good the point she says steph. You should have sued. I should've now that in english not to be fair at the announcement was incorrect so not sure who sued to not only. Was it not correct. He didn't announce the incorrect announcement english about that. I talking about thirty thousand dollars money. I'll just realized i didn't do the edit on this audio file for the the next news story. I will edit this but a note in here. That said i will edit this. An highlighted was wrong. I did not <hes> okay. Let's do this okay d- or unless you are we still talking about the canadian french word i think not nazi okay adam de ralph and michelle or michael michael. I'm not sure how do you pronounce m. I c. h. E. l. michelle michelle am i usually and others actually sent in <hes> links to this <hes> incident <hes> various news articles regarding it and it was in australia and western australia about an hour. I think south of perth is that correct <hes> nick agenda kat. It's about twenty miles south of perth and it's the epo. My <hes> niece is from using captain anderson will anyway way <hes> there was a student pilot <hes> at one of the flying schools. I'm wondering if it's the same flying school that your niece is employed with <hes> she knows she works for a luxurious <hes> <hes> terrorist travel company okay <hes> anyway. He was in his first. I lessen and a two seater aircraft. I think it was a cessna one fifty two if i remember correctly and <hes> his instructor instructor collapsed midflight and i'm going to do this. I'm going to click on this youtube article to australia now. Full remarkable story pilot and australia throat as instructor was missing with him when he collapsed during the night and listen forcing the novice flyer to land the snow one fifty two solo max sylvester cold air traffic control for help after his kiwi-born instructor lost consciousness during their flight over gender caught airport in western australia now his wife and three children were watching on is he came into land along with the flight right school owner chuck mckelway well. There's an old adage. <hes> any time you walk michael landon <hes> you can walk away from. It's a good leaning. If you can use a plane again it's a fabulous landing and he made a fabulous landing. I don't recognize that access south western australia accent like south carolina. Georgia sounds like he's definitely definitely from. The united states the pitcher in this article. How many says the one seven two retractable undercarriage are the one seventy two argies. Do is such a thing but what what are you looking at the bottom on only oh thanks cycle down it mean it looks to wish but i didn't have any of them had returned to cuba so think i've learned some the one that i think that the the actual incident aircraft was <hes> one that <hes> i think it was a cessna one fifty two or one fifty and it had <hes> text skier okay. This is not the right no yeah well. It was close by journalism and close actually forty seven right yeah anyway. Shall i continue with this little ashley amazing. Throw it so he's he's up in the plane. How far through the listen we die. <hes> they were <hes> coming back from <hes> the last one and we have entry points into the airport and he just past the entry point as an instructor pass out and he thought he was just messing with him but he's saying realized that that was not the case and <hes> so <hes> eight percents to the airport and told what to do. I mean if you've heard the live. ATC that's it starts saying he's got an emergency and <hes> anyway the tower comes to the party and they do do their tower thing and they get extra common. They get <music>. You're right across. Secondary's is just as his headquarters. Take on the ground and just on the instructor up the backup up the tower if they had any other questions there anyway just all worked together well. That's the understatement of the century chuck. We ain't moorefield that stories like this well so in the control room. He cited the air traffic control away all calm. I mean that was as cold as a cucumber. So what was. I doing visualizing the inside of the plane. How do you give someone instructions. He's neva landed applying before well. You know the <hes> janicot out here the airport we're that's enough of that so his instructor yeah sure yeah he <hes> did a great job and <hes> at some point in the audio. I think he was being interviewed by someone or maybe it was while he was still flying but <hes> he said his instructor had said that he was one of the best students that he's flown with <hes> so i guess it was like his third flight but maybe it is first actual lesson so he had been up in the airplane a few times he'd seen his instructor land which obviously was helpful and apparently he's. He has some natural ability which is definitely key for him to land the airplane and save towns kid because he that happening. That's kind of how i started off with. Flying lessons the first two flights weren't actual lessons that i took but <hes> mhm sitting up front and getting some explanation of what was going on. I think that would have been helpful if he had some similar experience to that right right so good on him. <hes> for <hes> you know main attention to what the instructor was doing before he actually had to take controls himself in land the airplane and did a did a good job of it in fact <hes> there were some comments made by some folks witnessing it that it was a better than average landing that was made by by the washington video on it and it's <hes> quite i would almost say almost picture perfect landing yeah. It was a beautiful touchdown so i can just sign off on his license now here. You know you may there. You go all right continuing with item e a US appeals court says travelers can sue the american american government over abusive conduct by federal airport screeners because he agents can act like law enforcement officers including when they conduct invasive searches searches while they do wear badges but they're not really officers are law enforcement officers but <hes> anyway they decided that hey they don't treat that you very well on the TSA <hes> and you have a case you can actually sue them and makes idea sue the TSA ought. Do you sue the individual individual because it says the US government is generally immune from lawsuits sure about that but federal law allows people to file lawsuits over the actions of officers who can conduct searches and arrests people so it sounds like the individual to me yeah. I think you're right. I think you're right because usually a federal worker officer would be protected by that by <hes> that <hes> protection against being sued but apparently not so much anymore. Spencer in the chat room says you see the government okay. I'll either way you can do something like that. Yes suing thing. That's the second story we've had this. Show so far about people suing people it should be a loses pace pace system at that would that would help help it out mentally get rid of all these frivolous lawsuits <hes> okay and finally last item that we have here <hes> this has sent in from jonathan and he said was perusing losing the internet today came across this great story about an easyjet pilot who didn't want vacation flights to be cancelled and agreed to pick up for a pilot who couldn't make the flight. I imagine genetic acme. It would be much harder for this <hes> to even be considered because of all the different plane types but have you heard anything like this. How about acme read looking forward to hearing you all discuss and so the item that he too which he's referring is thus michael bradley was due to fly for manchester airport to alicante with his wife and young son on monday but they faced delays due to a missing captain determined not to let the crew shortage affect him he volunteered his services took to the tannoy. I've never seen that. Where before is that correct <unk>. Have you ever seen that either just a tannoy yeah. It's a it's a shame. It's a bit like colling a vacuum cleaner a hoover. It's a form of address system brokaw system made by china in our country china for example. It's now generic with the system kleenex brown. There is a name for those much anymore manufacturers. That's yeah okay interesting. Okay never never heard of that so thank you <hes> so he went to that the public address system him to inform his fellow passengers of his decision and <hes> there was <hes> he he made the announcement in the airplane in front of the passengers and several overall people were videotaping with their video recording with their telephones and i have a little bit of audio. I actually did this and you can hear him. Explaining what's going on to the passengers of the slight zero fifty with my little boy is the oakland asleep by our should keep it validates. She rolled over and punch me the bucket and set off lice delayed by two hours because they are minus one counted for the flight. The reason why the council luda pass today the council the paris the following is three hours later on the several other airplanes going to three four hours knows so just before we went security at all what this phone call. I think it is going to be sounding the terminal doing nothing. I'll got my license with me deliberately. ID with me going all the time. You need a favor who stopped the several phony by thirty seconds later said please please pretty pleased with jerry. Can you fly the airplane swallow county. We're gonna physician and build a pilot out from some of the base. I'll stick a pair of shoes on just in case so if you're on your pilot's license the reason reason why he originally said two hours on the ball away for captains he was on home stung by the phone him out. He takes him ninety minutes to get here. It's not just against anyway so he goes on a little bit more but you get the picture he said hey. I'm qualified to fly the jet. I worked for this company any and i'm not in my uniform but <hes> let's see what happens on the thing that concerns me until i heard him explain this during this <hes>. PA was well whoa okay so he's going to get the jet to alicante but what happens then i mean. How are they going to get you know. Is he going to fly back <hes> but as he said they were going to position another pilot from another another location to downplay the fly so i thought i thought of housing get he's going to go on vacation. I don't care about any of you guys work it out. That's not important or you could say he could kind of insinuate or whatever let them know or think. I think he was gonna fly back then when he gets there. Oh no i'm sorry that's a misunderstanding maracay. Sorry good luck yeah. I can store i. I can't imagine because akin to list oh lee delays and failures that my company had <hes> <hes> that resulted in this because i would file me stood up and said look just in case. You're worried <hes> shia qualifying captain. I was passing on now. I'm going to fly their planes. Hence i'm not wearing my uniform and just got on with the job but <hes> i did sound a little self serving to me but the very beginning of that he did blame it on the french air traffic controller strike. Oh did you okay yeah so he should reemphasize. Is that at the end with that. Oh by the way that i mentioned it was the french air traffic controllers exempt messed all this up for us could point could point but <hes> yeah. We've had a few cases where we've had deadheading all pass injuring bonnets. <hes> you gotta pundit guy sake and <hes> they've held out the hand and god i will. I really had a couple of years. I yeah no worries so i'm pretty sure we've <hes> we've had that a couple of times. <hes> i remembered shadow skipper who flew out all flew uh-huh from submarine these jeans because he did not uniform within the volunteer to operate a sector. I'd be a little concerned about the fact that this guy's wife hit him in the back of the head right you. You mentioned that a few times yeah yes. She was the one who is really young. She was not happy about the fact that can be a holiday. No when you get paid to take a safe to win the very nah. I thought about that with us the jeff i dunno it 'cause in that's circumnavigating sir circumnavigating seniority. They didn't put out for the system. They have to put it out on on. I would imagine they have put out his white slip. If you're not <hes> on reserve serve me yet because you guys kind of get paid extra. We get paid a salary. I don't know what <hes> ryan ease is. Policy is but i doubt very much they were the same system as as you know. Dana makes a good point. Yeah that would be extraordinary if something like this happened <hes> at acme or maybe it happening if the next nearest pilot pilot was very very far away like to come from and they just unusual circumstances circumvented the caveat where they can <hes> use that excuse show yeah. I don't know if it's only two hours and it's got to go to the most senior person than operation or something but you know what would happen. Dana probably probably whoever it was supposed to go to they would have paid them as well even though they didn't actually show up and actually be great. You just say oh here. We have a thousand dollars that really that'd be a lot more than that but yes. I was fine with the guy that he said that he just got this call from the company ralph and said oh by the way you're going to get paid for a two day trip that you were supposed to be awarded like five months ago and what he didn't. He didn't grievous or anything else but i guess they do. They do an audit on occasion to make sure that they are following having the proper protocols for signing trips and they found out that not only he but some others had should have been awarded these trips and weren't and and <hes> company made you know made made right with it um and so i said i got a couple couple extra bucks in his paycheck for not even doing anything so i guess you have to kind of you know it. That's part of the balance of things right dan. Sometimes we get the other end of the stick. The damon seems he gets up more than everybody else away from. You were working well. Maybe not quite that extreme only happens in medicine. Oh really young actually sometimes that doesn't sound good at all go into this is is not taking your money away until morale improves. That's right exactly. We're not happy until everybody's not happy here. Okay time for your feedback in doing message. The you know spill around a bit. Don't wait in the ground. Let's start with our first item adam and the feedback boulder from omaha todd well. I saw my first go around the day after years of spotting at the lewis and clark monument just east of apple the airfield omaha nebraska kilo oscar mike alpha and on the bluff hence council bluffs. Oh okay. That's a really pretty <hes> <hes> just to the east of the f. lee airfield. Are these bluffs that rise up. I guess that's what i call him. Bluffs on the other side of the missouri river really pretty <hes> anyway. That's where he was <hes> watching the airport operations. He said after years of watching operations from here yeah i can tell something wasn't right. I saw this american airlines flight drastically maneuvering left and right. They looked high and fast. I could only figure they were trying to scrub speed need an altitude and about two hundred feet above the ground over the threshold. I pitched up and declare to go around and he said he had the live. ATC app going on his phone which is a great app to half by the way <hes> my question is. How many times have you or nick dana or staff had to do this. And what does your company think about it. <hes> the air traffic controller asked after they got reconfigured for the reason that they went around and they said well. We were just too high i assume. ATC ATC trained to let them get established a go around before they ask why yes and they waited till they cleared the runway what is protocol for you as a pilot and the ATC thanks events omaha todd hope you do another meet up. Oh it was great when captain. Dana joined us the day so you gave him his captain's stripes dirty side down fellas okay so todd was one of those who was at that particular meet up at <hes> flats he he is he was there and i'll be in omaha lee this month. Chick okay and again sar taught. I didn't <hes> contact you to let you know we were there anyway so so regarding his observation of the go around and yet some questions related to it <hes> and so he's ask us at asking us how many times i don't know i haven't counted how many times i've gone around my career. Lots yeah may blah. Have you stuff have gone around before i saw i saw you yeah at <hes> downtown. During this year in greenville you mean bill downtown yup. Why did you do that stuff. As two fast two thousand floated halfway down the runway yeah so that's the reason if they didn't <hes> didn't dislike how it looked and <hes> just wanted to make sure as in the serious in it's pretty easy to be a few knots fast there and did skits and aground unaffected doesn't want to land and it also doesn't like to stop very quickly so it's nice to have a little bit extra room left on the runway so <hes> yet not my greatest approach win around sounded again and it was just fine on the second attempt from my vantage point. It looked everything looked fine. I didn't even notice you were floating at all but auto so you were in the airplane and you can yeah we were not on the ground there so it looked like it from the restaurant over there but other times <hes> what are some other reasons is that you've had to go around stuff deer on the runway dear <hes> let's see what else <hes> <hes> definitely especially during training just <hes> you know purchase at aren't going great too high too fast not what's to rise d- <hes> a lot greg and semen approach with insurgents go around all the time 'cause he'd actually don't plan on on landing but you if you're just doing a practice approach so at the end of that approach. You're gonna go round and set up for another approach just to work on the approaches. You don't need the landings say there but you wanna practice the instrument procedures. I actually don't think weiner's go around as much as we we mentioned maybe earlier <hes> i saw an airliner. Go around this past. I i think in the sixteen seventeen seventy almost eighteen years. I've been flying at the in the airline align business. I've gone around. Maybe three or four times on my most memorable one is up in in toronto is on a snowy afternoon behind a mad dog. ED eighty three american lines as the first one ever did as an airline pilot when i was on the air jay <hes> and it was a snowy day in the they used up pretty much all the runway so we had to go around so that was my first time ever going around on the airliner but i haven't gone. I'm gone around a whole lot. Mike and it's not not discouraged not stabilize if you don't meet the criteria <hes> and the situation doesn't look good then certainly they want you to go around because i want you to come through a thousand feet configured and then i'll fully stabilized by five hundred feet. Yes they expect us to go around like we have not met the stabilization criteria for an approach <hes> <hes> and i was gonna say for me. Most of the times that i've had to initiate a go around was due to the airplane proceeding us still on the runway and not clearing in a timely fashion or whatever missing that last high-speed or whatever and just gone yeah this is not gonna work out and then and the tower controller usually is the one that says yep go heddon go around. Sorry let me see one resale. No might right. One of my girlfriends in the airline business has been for that exact reason <hes> <hes> yeah so we have <hes> as dana alluded <hes> several several criteria that we must adhere to <hes> you know like a thousand feet you know be within a certain parameter on the lateral and glide path to the <hes> to the runway and configuration has to be completed by that. You're landing configuration and visual conditions. <hes> by five hundred feet near speed has to be within a certain time <hes> or a time but a parameter with close to your actual computer muted reference speed <hes> thousand feet. You might be a little bit fast <hes> but you know correcting to slow it down to that target so anyway anyway <hes> very well defined parameters. I think all airlines have those parameters <hes> they may be a little bit different here and there from one airline to another but it's john unusual that you'll see somebody <hes> like i was in orlando and we were crossing a runway or getting or holding short of royan the noticed that <hes> the airplane behind us on the on the other runway was was going around in the tower said you know i think they have to log these things. That's why they ask ask. If it's a towered airport they'll ask what the reason was but it's not for any purpose other than to just record of it saw punitive thing it's just record heard of it and i'm in and i may have misspoke yeah and i said probably the wrong way. Most airline pilots over the career. Don't go around all that much. <hes> however airliners do go around on a fairly regular basis <hes>. I think i misspoken to make it sound like well your you don't go you know i think i think everybody understood what you're saying. <hes> it's not something that's common not like every trip. You're going to go around like once. It's on a trip or something like that. It's maybe once every year or two that may be an NBA interested here neck. I mean you you have one leg day a <hes> that you know so i guess but <hes> yeah we might <hes> many fewer approaches is not the wrightwood jeff furious fjords kid yes so <hes> yeah the most common coast for me. <hes> has been traffic getting too close to the guy ahead. <hes> <hes> aircraft landing in front doesn't claire in time <hes> <hes> you think about it we almost exclusively do instrument approaches yes <hes> in my set of world so it's usually much easier to be stabilized so unless at traffic of left you <hes> uncomfortably comfortably above the <unk> before they release you to make your approach. Oh they've given you an unrealistic speed constraint <hes> which is left john stabilized. It's pretty rare but i've <hes> my first camman close trip with a training captain he uh uh around from a bounce which was quite interesting <hes> so we did we landed bounce and went around and he got completely discombobulated. So actually i was sitting there 'cause i had not quite as much as to do and it had been lean a bit of he was flying it so it'd be a bit of a shock to him. <hes> we <hes> we. We did it to get the help me out here. Yes it was just because just gang. I think we should probably lift again now. Yeah oh yeah yeah yeah. I was wondering think about some flaps. <hes> yeah carry on excellent idea tesco and i'm sorry nick. I was just gonna say an the mo most <hes> dramatic one for me was on one of my final command of check rides i doing my very first landing into los angeles the santa monica arrival which takes you down and wind and it never never flown before neverland that LA and either i offset beside me who i was having to translate all the <hes> RT for him because he didn't understand the american accents and then as <hes> we we always expected to go reasonable distance down wind before the being brought in to to full left and about half that distance <hes> <hes> she turned me right ninety degrees unchanged the runway on me so i was now expected to localize around to all right and i was way high and all just l. a. too much. We just couldn't configure they across slowdown faucet off get new. IOS frequency and etc cetera just turned into a shambles else and i went round said forget it will be better on the second attempt zoe and it was <hes> but i had to reflect the trip but they must us life. If when you're a now on and i and i was going to comment on on your nick and that is is that you know how when you go around we do it so infrequently. Currently we become <hes> you know. It's kind of like well. What do we do next. What do we do next. We have now have a policy and act me that we are supposed to brief that monorail on a regular basis. I'm trying to remember whether it's once every trip. Yeah orbits once. I think it's once every trip but was bright for that. So we brief the continuously yeah. I like that and in fact if ever i saw a situation where it looked like we were going to end up being sent around the guy had was being in slow off the runway. I would always give him any brief. <hes> we might go around if we do it is our just shout out instructions <hes> <hes> just so he would be way both in the mind of how it was okay because i don't know about you guys but in the end there are three very distinct attorney types ago around depending on the altitude at which you fly it <hes> and the they typically the ones down at low close to the runway the ones we always practice the other two very very rarely do and they flooding such different manner that it can be quite confusing. Get so tied right into a note can't use the same procedure role. Janis techniques different probably shouldn't cheat passenger kgo eight a good technique is always to advanced power and pull the nose up but if you pull those up of advancing the power then the house skip bigger against so that's not an advisable but you know there's some you know like sometimes you might have to like wave off the approach and not really do go around and put in toga power our and put the pitch up to twenty degrees or something you know at the level of folks you paid for right. We're going to give you macos some around. You'll continue descending because there you're above the mister broucek toot and you need to fly down to it before you can n level often go around innovated comes from the altitude so i guess we talked about this. I don't know if you joy into. LA right for example l. a. or san francisco or something in california yeah there's a restriction you gotta be a certain alto. The missed approach to send around from above that you have to continue to sending sending in level at the mr bright cianci 'cause you'll go straight through visual flight corridor and all the little pipe and cessna's will get very upset but the point about sometimes we can sense that something is not going quite the way it should be ahead of us in. That's is when <hes> people that have good airmanship will start saying okay in in case. We have to go around here. Let's kind of go over this. You know yoga's tyler above above but you know i always always side because it shows. You're thinking ahead of their plane. Let's do that yeah. I i did miss speak earlier. I said all my parents have been because of <hes> aircraft on the roadway. I i did have one go round which was a wind shear event on not low to the ground but in denver in which is a common quite common occurrence especially the winds coming pretty strong over the top of the rockies into the valley. We did have a windshield so i did have one go around which was wind shear man. I had one of the seven twenty seven that was a wind shear and it was a doozy. It was a doozy now. We l. one more one more question from him. Yes we do says. Have you ever found a safety of flight issue that grounded the plane on preflight walk around. Yes yup absolutely <hes>. You're not doing your job if you've never found something <hes>. That's usually why we do the white around. Make sure that it's airworthy yeah. It's kinda you know when you're walking around machine engine. It's kind of a dead giveaway yeah. Sometimes you missed that one. That one's a tough one for the wings gone or something yep. I'm sure not same thing i meyer planes were always beautifully maintained <hes> <hes> well after and i used to go around with my dot glosses unlike states so i could see anything anyway walkie. You're that guy. The guy was talking about on the last like didn't look like he was really doing anything lord posing glasses <hes> selfish frequently things wrong with g with general aviation aircraft and best to get it checked out by maintenance before you take it flying founder boil running down the side of the engine cowling but on the opposite side of where the oil dipstick is is and phil that's where that was coming from and also a flap track like the flaps run along that was just all bent out of shape shape for some reason if someone over speed the flaps interesting did not fly on those days for you all right thank you omaha todd and <hes> hopefully we'll have a chance to get back together again some other time and just a reminder to folks <hes> at least <hes> couple of us that have schedules that we know about <hes> in the future <hes> we try to remember to put them on the ABC community <hes> calendar and <hes> if you will look at the counter you can see my trips and where i'm going to be in that kind of thing and if you think that there might be an opportunity entity to <hes> do some sort of a meet up just contact me and we'll see if we can come up with something same with same with me. I put my schedule up there as well and i will be in omaha later on in september so we need up to me sounds good to me all right <hes> adam to from ramiro hello. ABC crew no coal shoveling jokes this time for me. Thank you <hes> but i do get a smirk on my face. Every time someone mentions the mad dog running on coal on the podcast yeah we do too when you guys read my email on the show <hes> when you guys read my email mail on the show a rebounded and played it for my wife but she was less impressed about my email making it on the show that i was. She just doesn't get how big a deal the deal was. They don't get a lot of things we played your email. Let's see. I have two topics as for you guys today but i will try to be brief. I i have to start out by calling out dr staff. I listen to her talk about visiting eleven states over three days in order to beat her dad to all all fifty. I too am keeping track of the states. I visited a don't count estate. If i only connect through the airport for example i've made many connections through both the o'hare and midway in chicago but i still don't count illinois is a state i've been in. I don't count illinois as a state. I've been it. It sounded like you counted a few connections. Okay i know these contests are subjective and you can set your own rules so congratulations for getting to all fifty states so he kind of called you out a little bit but then he kind of backtracked a little bit. I guess i wrote back to him. I said you know yeah we had set the ground rules for the contest in advance and i certainly understand <hes> my my i have a aunt who did not understand why we would ever consider counting that as having visited estate but i will say that in all cases i did actually leave the airport surrogate. Sorry go even though i was just there for a connection i lift security outside. Got fresh air sunshine in all cases that went to museums. I went to museums. I drove across state lines. Sometimes i was just outside long enough to walk off the airport property and then walk back to the airport and get on the next flight but in all cases says i was actually standing outside of the airport in the state i was supposed to be i think we just gotta remain from the judges. The judges say yes was counted. Okay but <hes> ah my aunt i was referencing said that she wouldn't count estate unless they actually went to do some sort of event or activity in the state so she has driven across multiple states like nebraska wyoming but never stopped other learn to use like a rest area doesn't count as having visited it sick but you saw the entire state driving across it that counts to me. I don't know i don't i would not count connecting at a foreign airport. If i don't leave the airport in actually crossed you know through immigrations customs and be admitted into the country geographically. Oh you stood there and saw things but have you been in the country. If you visit not really so i i'm with you. Ramiro sameera says he's really jealous of your dad because he got to hawaii and you know pence domain ma'am mica just love hawaii maine lobsters initially i do for the food in maine to the food in hawaii. I will say <hes> but i'm gerald a little bit too because my dad got to take a helicopter tour of awas who which it was really awesome looking to a well who do i was trying to make a little joke. I guess i'm gonna have to into another direction in the next match here intonation their night kind of failed at that and then i have a joke for it and i did it so we try here. We do try tractor tractor. There are hundreds of comedians out of work. We should be respecting remorse respectful of them <hes> okay by the way there's an iphone app called states that you can use to track track the states you visit. I'm only at eighteen so i have a long way to go only eighteen almost embarrassing really i shouldn't have even brought it up. You know ramiro. When you sent an email you can actually go back and delete all that yeah. Well you gotta start somewhere. Yeah that's true. I mean eighteen. That's better than yeah and you know. There's probably a very embarrassing number of people in our population in the united states that have not even left their own towns very true sc scaring a scary amount of people that never left the state anyway a new topic on episode three eighty eight. You guys talked about the delta seven fifty seven that experienced a hard landing in ponta delgada which means the skinny end by the way <hes>. I was born in the as islands on the island of tara tara ding costa. It and i left when i was five years old but i still have family there to this day. Captain jet probably landed there at lodges a few times up in the air force days blind the c. One forty one on the airport on their sierra is also a a US air force base so i have been there. Have you jeff or or any of the AP. G. crew ever spent any time on the island of terceira awesome. I'm confused. Is that where lodges it lodges on that island. Yes yes if not no. I haven't been back there in thirty plus years. I bring it up because although i'm an american citizen citizen i grew up in the US. It's nice to hear the azores get a mention. Most people couldn't find my birthplace on a map or even aware those islands. That's exist as true. This is termed. Thanks so much for the podcast feeds my aviation passion like it needed more fuelling hawk blue sky tailwinds and plenty of coal. Wait a minute. I know i said no coal jokes this time but i just couldn't help myself. I'm weak illness. The rest of us suffer from it to accept ramiro on you. Can i certainly will will join you sir absolutely not hey you know if he chew on goal coal gold. If you chew on coal mega diamond you can make a diamond right a lot of pressure diamond in a rough and a lot of heat <hes> speaking of ponta delgada the the what do you say the skinny skinny end skinny point skinny point <hes>. Let's see this send him by christian and larry <hes> links to articles regarding the the fact that <hes> delta. I guess rented or at least a an antonov one twenty four. I saw it by the way in atlanta <hes> <hes> one of my trips <hes> just in charlotte to to uncle <hes> flies to ponta delgada to save deltas stranded boeing seven fifty seven seven so the article talks about the fact that brought a some stuff <hes> some equipment that will help speed type lots and wants to see aac and unlike other scissors snips ten steps and <hes> and who knows what else <hes> but you you know because we we kind of surmised or pondered whether or not the <hes> airplane was damaged so much that you wouldn't be able to salvage it or flight again now it could be that they're just doing whatever is necessary to get the thing in airworthy ish can to fly back on one time ferry flight back to atlanta and then after the or two somewhere out in the desert and then after that it's gone that would not surprise me if that's the deal or it wouldn't surprised me if maybe the damage was limited <hes> and didn't do enough significant damage to completely destroy the airplane. I don't know but i agree we. We'll reckoned. It was looking to nasty to <hes> the <hes> you're right. I do remember a story of similar when <hes> mile minds <hes>. ABC tens he wasn't flying at went through such via clarita guy ever the andes he's in south america that <hes> broke the airplane and they decided to fly at home <hes> with no passengers just volunteer not accrue <hes> and <hes> when they got it back <hes> the engine is gatwick looked at it and they what tout the wingtips were like eighteen eighteen inches closer to the crown they should be. Oh no these tire they entice spa the aircraft of being bent <hes> the you know the box spa for the wing so <hes> yeah it was. It never flirt n. Took it a piece of news now spans one has to wonder who had volunteered to fly that airplane guy phillips as you can imagine from his name but he was a bit of a joyrider wasn't crazy. Larry higher ball is name with my my look. The wings would have fallen off so we had a another. I mean we i heard all roberts. I think violent fireball roberts there. There was some company that had a hard landing here at greenville spartanburg or maybe it was greensboro somewhere with green in it. Maybe it was one of those places and it could have been actually wearing the carolinas somewhere that carolina and broke the broke the airplane and and <hes> they did one flight after that a special one time permit from that wherever that airport was to someplace out in the desert that was that was all she wrote on that one yeah so atms then i probably should <hes> what do you think it's getting close to the time where we write about a <hes> playing here. Okay this one's. It's not uplifting. I can tell you that but it is very well done <hes> captain neck and i'm excuse me old pilot and i think that <hes> <hes> everybody will enjoy listening to this <hes> so without further ado this week's installment of the old pilots plain tales <music> uh to the pilots plane tail <hes> <hes> ramstein lookback nineteen eighty-eight what of kosher descriptions in the story of vivid and these suitable for a young girl mm-hmm a little over thirty one years ago it was a halton sunny day at the united states have full space at ramstein near kaiserslauten in west german perfect day for their annual show people from all over europe attended but the majority of those enjoying the spectacle chairman's many from the local area. It was estimated that about three hundred thousand people wandering around the exhibits for math false is all over the wild and lined up along the crowd line watching the displays for which the ramstein air show was famous in a time when germany they were still divided some forty three years after the end of the war with nato forces in the west and soviets in the east. It was a moment when americans anson west germans could come closer together giving everyone at taste of burgers fries and american ice free the display that a year included many flypasts of nato aircraft on display teams such as they assessed and the tweeden france but the best most i impressive display was bought on lost as a suitable and to a wonderful days flying the italian aerobatic display team the frankie rickie trickle loria the italian. FOLS team was formed in nineteen sixty wanted by nine thousand nine hundred eighty eight. They were flying the macchi m b three three nine advanced jet trainer. The italian team were famed for some of the most daring formation maneuvers on the display circuit and they were oh keenly-awaited in the crowd with families aviation enthusiast politicians and military personnel from all over but many were the just there to enjoy an inexpensive day out in the sun of visitors from holland said at that time plane spotting was still a really exciting acting thing in the midst of the cold wall many countries completely forbade the photography of aircraft here in ramstein however you could do it officially during during the ash show and see across close by which you could otherwise hardly ever see we were with around two hundred spotters who had travelled to germany any specifically for this event twenty two four in the afternoon the ten aircraft of the freaky calorie lifted off to start they show it went well with the crowd enjoying the spectacle and each maneuver getting oohs and ahs from the audience particularly particularly the most densely packed area at the center of the display line where the biggest crowd loss after several minutes of what was a great performance. The team started one of the most impressive parts of their display. The sky remarked that shows that we the item started with the whole team running in towards the center of the crowd and a single formation as they approach the crowd line they pulled up into the vertical with their smoke. Com five aircraft split from the formation unperformed a quarter turn away completing a loop but now parallel to the crowd line the other half of the formation for at croft performed a mirror image of the same maneuver and the number ten aircraft now a singleton continued canoed to loop away from the crowd. The team had now split into three separate entities. The five ship on the four ship had pulled pulled up turned away from each other a menaul looping down and coming at each other head on aiming to cross crowds center with their smoke smoke trails leaving the distinct outline of a heart which would be completed as they crossed at the bottom. It was the singleton's job to finish the gesture by piercing the heart with an arrow made smoke to do this left tenant colonel ivo nardelli. I had to complete his loop. The first half of which was away from the crowd by pulling through towards the crowd and then pulling up to flying line through the iconic shape made by his colleagues in front of him. It was a spectacular visual display and necessarily had performed it hundreds writs of times before without mishap with over four thousand hours of military flying behind him. Notoriety was an experienced and capable. Oh pilot but this day he made a small but tragic era. Perhaps in his mind he was remembering what had occurred. During the dress rehearsal hustle that he flew the previous day during his loop he'd inadvertently flown into cloud and delayed his pulled through resulting in later rival to pierce the heart about seven to eight seconds after the main formation instead of the plan three to five seconds. They was little doubt that he was attempting to adjust his speed speed to get the correct separation by pulling the power back. I'm putting out his air brakes. As he completed his loop torelli bottom nowadays pulled through at bailey one hundred feet from the ground and about six hundred feet from the crossing formations in front of him way too close <music> he tried to pull his cropped up and over them but there was no room left and although he started to climb it was too late. Many in the crowd cost is they had already realized what was unfolding. His death was filmed by dozens of cameras amongst the onlookers look in front of him as he struck the fuselage of pony one the leader of the team the frontier of nutter elliot's aircraft disintegrated grated in a shower of debris and he was killed instantly in the collision pony ones machi- crippled by the massive impact spiraled spiraled out of control to the left striking his number two before the pilot abandoned the aircraft sadly too low for a successful ejection and he died when he hit the runway before his parachute had deployed pony to crash beside the runway on the fire also died in the huge flyable within a split second the team had lost three pilots but this was only the start of the tragedy by arranging this crossing maneuver to occur in front of the audience with no aircraft aimed towards crowd center the unthinkable was about out to happen the remains of pony ten would continue on a ballistic trajectory across the runway completely out of control and inflames on a path that would carry it into hundreds of innocent watches who up to that moment have been enjoying a marvelous noblest day out the wreckage hit the ground just in front of the spectator stands exploding in fireable and destroying a police this compound beside the fence that defined the active runway area the plane continued comped wheeling for a distance before picking up a bob lot wire fence crossing a road then slamming into the crowd and apart ice cream van a huge fireball la burning aviation fuel spread across hundreds of people. I'm billowed high into the sky the bob y offense strike by the wreckage into those at the front of the crowd had already killed many the jagged pieces of debris from the aircraft with thrown indiscriminately lean to the host of onlookers like shrapnel and would kill mall the fire however would cause the most casual in the words of our survivor after the impact and the explosions there was dead silence for a few seconds. Everyone's stead at the inferno. A new one moved only then panic broke out. People screened ran away in all directions. My friends and i started around as well after a a few meters. I realized that running away actually didn't help is everything was already over so i stopped and tried to orientate myself in front of me. A a huge black cloud of smoke rose into the sky then there was an extreme smell of burned flesh in the air. Even after many months i noticed the smell my nose and i cannot forget it. I walked past chop people as if being in a trump's many had burns all over the body and screamed while while all those were silently sitting on the ground staring straight ahead another recalled on imaginable heat seized me and i thought i i was gonna die now in front of me a wing or at least a large part of it pass buying shaved everything down a man was thrown away like being fired from a catapult others disappeared in a wall of file an incredible pressure pushed glowing hot air into my lungs and then suddenly there was no left to breathe anymore. I looked down to see if i was also terribly burned or lacerated. I was not now for the first time i consciously became aware of the stench in the it was a mixture of burned meet kerosene fresh blood unmatchable matchel unforgettable terrible screens came from orlova. I saw people wondering around who john black or snow. White tiff pounded with ashes everywhere. They were people ripped off body parts lying around the shapes that were lying on the ground was so melted that i was not even able to tell if it was a man or woman a third witness who was injured when panic broke out for member this moment the aircraft must've impacted now. I managed to get up and run away from it. I was just able to flee behind a container. I i do not know until today how i got there. Since at that moment a fireball went over us the container behind which i stood saved my life. The heat was indescribable and i thought that i would burn to death. The heat was so immense at all. The oxygen in the air was gone than i could not free to what was happening behind me. I could only guess because i knew that the crop to crash into the crown directly behind to me when i saw when i came from behind the container was indescribable everywhere that will burn people somewhere run around and with many of the skin hung from body what what happens next depends very much on your point of view and expectations following a disaster of this magnitude where tens of people have been killed and hundreds at sabine badly injured it was a major catastrophe and australian report has commented link that i mitchell ristic emergency management cost human lives and the the rescue efforts on the ground could hardly have been more chaotic. He goes is on to claim that only a handful of medically trained german forces were on site. They had not expected a disaster. This magnitude and therefore had not compiled wild a corresponding emergency comes on whilst these helpers were left on their own the americans use that long obsolete elite vietnam strategy in the belly existing care of the injured which consisted of load go specifically this meant nothing more than putting injured people on trucks in buses and flatbed trucks and then moving them as quickly as possible to the nearest hospital a fatal mistake in stark contrast an independent assessment by the IRS institute of aviation medicine tells us that plans hands were made for the possibility of mass casualties on the base disaster plan had been revised in february of that year once more he had been exercised twice in the six months prior to the accident was available in checklist form to a dedicated disaster response team team situated in a mobile command post at the show and two team leaders at each medical location in addition full cooperation and support was elicited from both the german red cross and the nearby landstuhl army regional medical center. There were a total of fifteen fifteen doctors and one hundred and sixty three paramedical personnel on duty for fluke tank. All the doctors were on the field except except for to the base clinic. A total of fifteen ambulances were standing by at the four medical aid stations and the dedicated. UH sixty black hawk kosovac helicopter part of a disaster response team was located on the south side of the runway. Unfortunately it was this black hawk that was destroyed and the pilot killed by falling aircraft debris however there was an abundance of helicopters does at ramstein the i was able within three minutes of the impact it was a u h one huey which being on standby to other helicopters chris wherever own in the next ten minutes these were soon joined by blackhawk from landstuhl medical center a royal air force puma and german civilian emergency emergency helicopters by the end of the day eighteen military and civilian helicopters had evacuated hundreds of casualties many any flying several return flights the survivors were triage treated and evacuated from ren stein within ninety six minutes nets the speed and efficiency of this evacuation was a result of prior planning thorough training medical reinforcement cooperation the operation with other agencies and the availability of an abundance of vehicles for both road and air evacuation. There was undoubtedly a difference in the approach of the german and american medical teams. The german approach was to treat and stabilize the injured at the scene whereas the american response was to move the casualties as rapidly as possible to one of the many local medical facilities however this influx likes of casualties dick caused some problems is some hospitals were overwhelmed bottle of the five hundred and thirty patients who were seen untreated three hundred ridden sixty-three where admitted to twenty one medical facilities in the first hours over the next few days many of these patients were further transported reported to forty six medical facilities throughout europe and in the USA mention must also be made of the bravery of individual federal members of the public who instead of running away from the fire ryan into it to save children put out the flames on burning people an help to comfort strangers who are terribly injured. The final death toll came to seventy and three hundred and forty six aches were seriously injured a sadly high proportion where children who had been moved to the front of the crowd so that they would have a good view if the show hundreds more had minor injuries and the mental scars of those who witnessed the event numbered in thousands uh-huh the seven damaged but still worthy aircraft of the frankie chuck laurie still flying regrouped and landed on the nearby airbase abass simba over the following months the italian authorities considered disbanding the formation team but despite the accident being put downed pilot era they continue to fly until two thousand and two this was the west ash show disaster in history story and for a while as shows in germany what buyer of note the previous year when the team had displayed in the USA the FAA did not give authorisation for the PS taught me. I find it tragic. It can maneuver designed to show the teams love for their audience should have unwittingly caused such disaster in an interview only only two months before he would die in the crash. The tenant connell torelli said every day and i fly never had about my job or they did in the plane and heavy day think i can beth on. I think you'll do something <hes> very close to the limits your limits and planes limits but i don't think i do something dangerous another <hes> touching tragedy yes quite a shocking story that <hes> you know gone from my memory and partly because i i it's it's one of those is awful things that if you ever do see the videos and the pictures were taken by the many thousands of cameras that were there <hes> <hes> you realize that some of the people who are holding those cameras parish taking the pictures and you know it's it's really heart rending ending <hes> thing to see so i wouldn't necessarily go visit the sights that <hes> still show those videos unless you of very strong constitution that <hes> is quite distressing but of course <hes> a lot of lessons learnt <hes> you know we're talking eighty eight and you know in the sixties seventies and early eighties ashes were still conducted a great deal <hes> more with the feeling of just pure excitement and much less consideration of crown safety <hes> if if the crowd line had been one perhaps two hundred meters further back they would have been with no injuries tool. That's sir how close it was between having a safe as show an having an absolute disaster nicholas afterwards <hes> those type type of maneuvers that at an element of risk involved that are headed towards the crowd were completely stopped and as you heard the FAA ahead already decided that that tequila maneuver had too much risk for it to be performed in the united states and very sensibly <hes> so you find now all that of course the pendulum has sung swung to an extent where <hes> there are so many restrictions that a lot of airfields can no longer hull traditionally shows because they just don't have that margin of safety available <hes> based on the field and in the surrounding area <hes> particularly in the UK UK out the showroom incident. I'm bhakta in the state still yet some pretty exciting. <hes> shows and oshkosh is one of them <hes>. We saw a very safer coach this year. I thought it was very well done. Yeah interestingly enough listen. I were having this conversation because we just saw the air show in in toronto and we were both at oshkosh and not that the air show in toronto wasn't excellent but we kind of felt like we had a little bit of post oshkosh blue's or letdowns still just because it things are so close at oshkosh. There's so much space available <hes> for a lakefront show that that a lot of the action happens a little bit ways away from you and it doesn't feel as closer as intimate so even though the airshows itself was excellent feels less personal somehow certainly that's done for safety or out of safety concerns i would think and for you know thinking back to incidents like this thus exactly right but i think there's a happy medium to be found about. A cosa flying jet craft around is is it's high risk just by its nature in the same way that motoracing is high risk <hes> you have to why that out with the <hes> fading being that the spectators should be protected i but yet they should still have something to enjoy. Though is it becomes a meaningless <hes> an event. I would imagine that the design of these demonstrations in particular maneuvers <hes> were affected by this accident and you'd like the trajectory of the movement of the aircraft kind of away from the crowds and not toward them alike as in this particular instance where that solo coming directly at the crowd yeah. I think the re- identify what the regulations are but just from watching issues i. I'm aware that the only time they crossed the crowd is usually <hes> on when they arrived sometimes i it's usually in in a very <hes> say safe manner in an amount of that is very unlikely to have a problem so straight-forward straight-forward flypast over the crowd entering but from then on you'll see the the maneuvers are always orientated so if there is a missile is carried away away from the current <unk> towards the crown okay. Well can't say that that was very uplifting but it was a well told <hes> so i i'm sure the people in germany <hes> remember this of course <hes> particularly in that area at thirty one years ago and i know there are memorials ramstein ramstein some of them not easy to get because they're on the base but <hes> <hes> i think they now have some memorials off bases while <hes> and i know that cia there is still some bad feeling amongst those who have survived all family members there there is definitely two sides of the coin on this particular accident <hes> no three entities really organiz in this there was the base there was the local german government with the italian team and <hes> although it was downed pilot error no one entity has taken responsibility really for <hes> <hes> following up apologizing ed hatch providing some recompense to the families who were so badly devastated so that's also crater element of bat that feeling but it's an interesting story. I find it fascinating well. Let's continue them with item. Four in the feedback from first officer wyatt he says well. I recorded a seven minute update for y'all on my iphone app which i had to re download only to see you have a web based version on your site. Hopefully yeah this will suffice and yeah a lot of people why use the recording devices on their smartphones and attach to email as you did and then several people use the speak pipe app as well either works just fine actually we don't prefer one over the other so without further ado let's hear from wyatt it and he's going to give us an update on his career a PG crew. This is the artist formerly known as helicopter pilot. Why now i officer wyatt last time i taught to you guys about a year and a half ago i was <hes> flying helicopters civilian and military and and looking at making the fixed-wing transition as they call it and there's a large contingent of guys come in through at are all doing this china seek out greener greener pastures in the airplane world us. I wanna give an update to you guys and probably more for any guys who are thinking about. They're doing the helicopter transition or <hes>. You know just guys who are looking at their. CF i looking at a going into the twenty one regional world in general <hes> so from from army transition i an interview with an airline with shall remain nameless <hes> still work there <hes> but they basically gave me a pretty pretty sizable signing bonus and also twenty three thousand dollars in addition to my. GI bill to pay from fixed-wing time. I needed to built had built two hundred fifty hours. There's in cessnas and seville's <hes> so all last summer basically day eight hours a day. I was flying. Airplanes was great a lot of times as you know learn how to land. Do your shells lazy aids etc. After a while you gotta time build so we just here's the keys and go find an airport that we've approved moved into galab fun and and again going with their cross country time building so i flew all over the east coast from maine to south carolina says no and a little bit a further in the seminole is an absolutely fantastic time just you and possibly you know one of your friends from the flight school going out and getting after it <hes> <hes> so that lasted until august so got three months bill two hundred twenty five hours so i mean do the math on that. It's it's like six hours a day. Every day of the weak maybe a day off so definitely up to the legal limits but within reason and after that my company paid for my eighty dp for you guys who have been and out of it for a while or out of the training pipeline for a while they're making us do this course now where you basically go and do crash investigation studies and watch a bunch of powerpoint power points and things like that at one of those contractor organizations it's a requirement for new guys in the one twenty-one world and then the day after that got me into in-duct <hes> <hes> and then after that week of indoctrination as they call it the you know the HR week <hes> they started me the training pipeline and due to the massive influx folks have guys coming into the regional world. You know they're hiring a lot of people right now and a lot of <hes> companies are getting new aircraft and there is a big kinda bottleneck for simulators ground instructors etc so a lot of guys and it was terrible. It was really rough because we had to wait three to four months the whole time just waiting to get our next phase training ground or sims together so three to four months sitting around but i was getting paid and i did have non ramp so so <hes> yeah it's pretty terrible going to montana in london and mexico and utah wherever else i went i just had all this free time and a good paycheck and basically river. My fiancee would let me go. I was there it was not so bad and then we started the the simulators and <hes> doing our SOB on the line with the you know an instructor instructor pilot. It's kind of an advanced CFI if you will <hes> the transition was a little challenging for for me. I would say it was all that difficult. I'm still oh definitely learning at all and now that i'm office <hes> but you know if you keep your head down and study and memorize and truly understand understand you know and be able to correlate all those flows and and regulations together truly not hard one thing i really like about the one twenty-one world is there's a lot of scripts and there's a lot of standardized policies. So once you get the senate's policies there is a lot less room for you to <hes> make make the wrong inferences or or do the wrong thing because you know what the baseline correct answer is and then you just use those based on crack answers to make a better decision so you know health. The world is just go out and you're the PC and we'll see in three hours be smart but here there's a lot more <hes> regulations which i actually do like it just keeps everybody nobody safer and fly with captain the next it's all generally the same which is safer and less stressful. I believe <hes> one thing i would suggest to any new guys coming into the regional world especially. I just go live in base. You know you're gonna live there for two three years. There's a lot of regional trips that star at five five. AM on day one so for you commute in from you know phoenix to the east coast or vice versa <hes> you know you're leaving the day prior at one in the afternoon or something so you've lost a day and a company's railing at eleven twelve thirteen days off adding a day onto both of your four on both sides four day trip. You really have no time off but being in base. I'm able to pick up extra flying chapel premiums. My company calls it and the lines. I can bid whatever lines i want because i'll just drive in and show up and i don't need to worry about what lines are. Commutable and lines are not really nice just a few <hes> ups and downs of life as neff. Oh now there's a lot of really short flights which is good and bad. <hes> you know you do a lot more work on the ground. You know maybe not getting paid sometimes getting paid pending what phase of flight but you get a lot of repetitions. I mean my first three days on. SO i had fifteen legs five days or five legs a day so that's fifteen takeoffs and landings fifteen pratt chances to set up your FM s. fifteen times ago through all your flows and call outs. It's good and bad. There's a lot of work but you get a lot of practice notice <hes> lynn. We want a small airports. You know small overnights so right now. I'm in watertown new york. <hes> the entire entire terminal is one gate <hes> so it's kind of cool to go these little places. You're probably not going to get to see you know outside of the regional world once you're flying seven eighty seven's can't can't quite fit that normally to eight and a watertown that's like five thousand feet long <hes> so it's good to visit these places get to see these small runway see how they do it out and kind of in the outer reaches as of the FAA environment and the runways are too so you have to be a little bit smarter with you know. What were you wanna pick. <hes> you know working with c. Taff everything else. There's a little bit more room to the new irs fars the PSE is concerned <hes> the downside. I'll says the efficient inefficient trips <hes> today flying into watertown and i got an at ten. AM and i'd been off the whole day. <hes> so you know for anybody who likes to go out and go to a restaurant go see museums great you get all all these little towns but if you wanna fly and build time flying an hour and a half some days is not optimal for you to build up that time to get to your one twenty-one minimums for captain and lastly sleaze the money <hes> it has been pretty good. I'd say <hes> talking to the old guys they all <hes> they were all making fifteen eighteen twenty k. a year and i am making significantly more than that. I'm not making six figures but it's good. I'm comfortable so thank you to all those guys who came before me who pushed for that <hes> because we've been able to enjoy much more comfortable lifestyle well. That's all i have rather than normal sendoff with your uh blue skies and tailwinds. I'm gonna wish you guys three different prayers of pilots. I wish you commuter friendly trips unlimited overtime flying and hotels free breakfast signing off first officer white. CEO excellent <hes> thank you first officer wyatt for the update good to hear you're making great progress out there in great advice by the way <hes> to those who are following you in those <hes> your footsteps steps depths footsteps. Does it right the third time. I think you said it right the first time i can time. Maybe okay okay. That's fine yeah. We knew what you meant. Okay thank you <hes> free breakfast. <hes> gotta love that around you so any other comments to make or shall we move on now. Groucho news very thorough common sense hence approach to getting your airline or getting started in your first airline job. I should say it reminded me a little bit of <hes> <hes> chad <hes> dana same kind of deal where a company that he got on these basically here the keys to the airplane and go and fly you know and build up your time <hes> in the same sort sort of thing where they where they really help very helpful and providing an opportunity for your for you to build up that time very very quickly so you can get on with one twenty-one carrier. Yeah i mean it's it's very fortunately they will do that. I mean that's a great having you and congratulations to to you on on that on that f. L. wyatt many many happy landings and app years ahead of you all right <hes> number five what somebody like to <hes> read this one. I'll do it if you'd like. Okay compete yup from pete. It just seems story hope you all like it or as they say in the south y'all <hes> a boy with boy with autism would wouldn't sit still zillow united airlines flight so kuhn passengers stepped into help my big magnate school bigger here all right <hes> brayson is a four for your own autistic boy he usually loves to fly but he had a meltdown on a united airlines flight from CEO to houston that was when the aircraft's crew and passengers came together to help them. The boy's mother laurie laurie gabriel cypress texas told CNN that brayson removed his seatbelt just before takeoff saying he wanna sit on the floor. It was impossible to restrain him us fighting both me and his father it took both of us to try to get him back to his chair and get his seatbelt seatbelt back on. He started kicking screaming and hitting say gabriel. That's when the flight came over and told us the fight couldn't take off until he is seated. I call her. The boy was boy has autism. We were trying to give him give us a minute. The fightin- walked away. Meanwhile we gabriel still trying to keep the boy on the seat. She came back with two other fight hunts who asked the mother how they could be of help then they sprang into action gabriel end i they let bracing sit on our lap for takeoff while the father was holding him then after the seat belt sign was turned off his mother led the boy down because he was screaming and fighting her so the crew let him sit on the floor next to them and when he's always stimulating the vibration makes him feel better gabrielson at one point the boy in virtually kicked the past ni crossing them a united flight attendant who is not working during the flight. She said she was because me. She was just being nice instead. It was okay if he kicks her feet gabrielson than the boy went to first class and started kicking him in seat messing with it bracing seem happy happy there of course he did. I wouldn't be happy in first class right so recent seemed happy so we didn't want to move in. The woman said so i told them in. I'm sorry but he didn't mind introduce himself. Racing gave him high fives. He said you can kick my chair. I don't care that actually rhymes. Everybody in first class was kind to him asking his name showing him pictures on their phones leading him. Sit wherever you want and gabriel said the fight tank kept asking if we need anything making sure everybody was taking care of just before leaving the off duty flight attendant who is sitting across crossing them gave gabriel a hug and a human hand written note in which she said <hes> which in which she commended for her strength strength you and your family a loved and supported recent out don't ever let anyone make you feel as though you earn an inconvenience our burden is a blessing. I think the no goes on god. Bless your patients. You'll love your support. Your strength continued to be a super woman. Gabriel posted a picture of the note on facebook along with the pictures of brayson on a fight in a shoutout to united united airlines tweeted in response. It sure sounds a brazen. Your family had a great fight. We are happy that accrue is able to make it an enjoyable experience. We are overjoyed to see that we have doc such loving and supportive passengers on board as well. We look forward to seeing brayson again soon and we are suspending the captain and the crew for letting a four year old set in the lap app no. They didn't say that that's a nice adam. Irregular uh-huh tents have been fired gabriel said her son usually fluffs to fly but the flight earlier. This month was his first long flight. The family was traveling back dot com san diego where they've been on holiday. I'm just a woman molokai sadness. It makes me wanna cry. She said for the first time people have. I've been very understanding and helpful about raisins autism. It's very promising i'm gucci's. I'm sorry <hes> it's very promising we don't have to care about what other the people think because there are people who are caring who understand. It gives me a lot of hope for the future while i've got goosebumps. What can you say after that. A nice uplifting story james absolutely awesome all right well. Thank you dan for reading that. Thank you pete for <hes> sending that in sharing the story with us <hes>. Let's see six <hes> captain nick. Would you liked to read this. One bio main cross cat civil air patrol okay civil air patrol chris excellent tim jam fine crew. I'm a long-time listener and flying with the civil air patrol in the atlanta area. I have two quick questions. Oh wow great quick ones. We love one is i was recently listening to live. ATC on a beautiful day and they were directing planes in using the localize approach. I was just curious as to why they were using a localized approach and not be visuals in via for bribes you guys being atlanta based with acne so that one that's <hes> quite the the real we always have that as they bring you in on localized and then they'll clear you for visual approach that is once you have <hes> traffic in front of you insight in or the importance written site so it may be visual conditions out there but it could be hazy <hes> so that's quite a common practice in they use it a lot especially when they're running parallel <unk> visual approaches just keep guys <hes> sound line on the line at the end of the runway at truth. Is that standard operating procedure go head neck. No i was just gonna say with all those parallel runways you very close to people you've got to be accurately lined up and across prevents you from misidentifying a runway landing landing on the wrong one at practice every everywhere we go if they have an underlying approach we put the underlying approach in and the so even even if it's clear and a million you're still going to be dialing up the i. Less frequency tracking the local eiser <hes> tracking the glide slope all the way to the runway. Even if you're technically on a visual approach accepting responsibility for spacing and everything else you are not gonna turn everything off and is look outside and refer only lead to the runway. We're always required to have an underlying approach in our navigational aids unless there is none mediate ism jeff jeff but i think we're the only european left that actually dials in the local that's true. We probably all shovel the coal to dial the battle. I think if you forget to take the if you don't take the gloves off then you get the coal all over the knobs. It really doesn't give as black lung. Do we qualify for black lung disease workers compensation so the second one was my second question with ask sickness. This sounds like a one for two in a private pileup for seven years imply. They've regularly fairly regularly and recently during a biennial flight review. I suddenly became sick solid vomiting. You don't don't need to get sick while you're reading this. It's overly dramatic. I think thought vomiting which led to the flight being terminated by instructor. It came on suddenly out to several steep turns. I've never been asked before. Maybe steph can help me to understand why it happened and so suddenly and if this is common excetera thank you for the great podcast clear skies and windy tiles chris <music> windy tales interesting <hes> so i said no chris. There's probably a couple explanations. I think the most most likely for what happened especially if you've not been <hes> airsick before <hes> if you were the one flying the aircraft and you know just going through things maneuvers you would do <hes> either on regular or semi regular basis or for practice in your within your inner ear. There are these <hes> things it's called centers semi circular canals and what happens is that they're filled with fluid in little tiny hairs but also these little tiny stones call odalisques and it's not uncommon uncommon that one of those odalisques can actually not move as freely as it's supposed to what the semi circular canals are meant to do our to provide you with <hes> <hes> proprio -ception basically so as you're moving in different planes of motion they're oriented either vertically horizontally or kind of in an oblique plane so that when you move and twist twist your head you get feedback from that and your body knows what you're trying to do and it doesn't conflict with visual input that you're getting <hes> but if one of those <hes> semi circular canals blocked or the the odorless doesn't move the way that it's supposed to <hes> within their then you can get that conflicting information going into your brain from your inner ear and and also from what your eyes are taking in that can make you feel very ill even without being actually sick and i suspect that might be what happened to you here. It's at least one explanation nations. There's some other ones sometimes. If you're you know not to feeling ill per se but starting to suffer some of the early effects of either respiratory respiratory illness or another or is a stomach illness. GI illness dehydrated as the night before. I'm sorry he's is pregnant. Pregnant congratulations let us know with orion. Patrol chris know there's other reasons to why you could be feeling a little oh you could be starting to wonder whether just a little bit <hes> but not quite feeling the full effects of being sick and ask some of these <hes> issues occur also. I was wondering wondering you said it was during steep turns but you're on a flight review. If it was something that your flight instructor was demonstrating as opposed to you actually at the controls of the aircraft or if they had demonstrate something just before you had another reason why people sometimes become airsick because they're not the ones manipulating the controls and just get a little bit that conflicting visual and preemptive information formation two point prosciutto sub proprio assumption purpose of knowing where your body is in. Oh okay so just that's it really fancy but allows you to take your anger in touch your nose without really having to if you include is indeed that bad hangover or a bad oyster oyster. There's a couple of illnesses that might lend themselves up if you weren't feeling sick after all this happened <hes> i think the inner ear explanation is probably the most likely playing doctor on podcasts. I agree holiday excellent. Anyone else has any other logical explanations. That sounds reasonable to me. Okay moving on adamson. <hes> hello guys my name is amelia a two hundred our private pilot from the bottom part of south america a country that dr staff has bentiu recently. Am miami recused to operate from man. That was a year ago for me. I guess it was kind of recently she lay. It's all it's all relative right. <hes> mhm leeann chilly some in the southern part. He has been in the mountains in the mountains. I love the podcast. I've been a listener for a couple of years. It's great all of them till you prepares incredibly interesting and you keep my motivation on to fulfill my dream of becoming a commercial pilot in the near future. A year conducted a pretty nice and long bicycle tour in japan and scotland and listening to your podcast on those long days riding. My bicycle was a very nice way to let the time pass by why i ended motorbike from japan to scotland depend and scotland that would be a little ride bike pedalo be very wet we might we might have just enough hours to fill a bike trek from japan scotland availability. If i don't know you smart steph pin head blonde haired made who made a really bad joke there so did you see the guy <hes> that on a paddleboard went from the west coast to the US to hawaii on board what paddleboard out like a mile at the nets hard hard work where there's not a lot of you know waves or or shocks sharks or yeah wow humble. Oh better in better shape than i am anyway any who <hes> that can't be <hes>. Let's see i ended my journey on the shetland island a very remote part of the united kingdom that is home to an RAF bass sax afford sex with us right guy that i'm sure holds at least some plain tales material in the seventies. There was an american pilot that was literally abducted by aliens strew doodoo. Do you know for some reason not cutting through. You're getting cut out by everybody. I don't know why that is go ahead. Nick say being a bit rude about the scottish people then i alien it is kind of rude ned now that you pointed out any points out that it's porn that captain captain nick would low l. That's great and involves some p- f four phantom porn that captain nick would love never mind. I'd love the show and i'm ashamed that i haven't listened to all the episodes yeah. We're ashamed of you as well but i'm on it. I'm definitely part of the AP g. syndrome population. Oh boy sorry amelio love the show look forward to many more best regards than i look forward to meet you all in the future and again that's emilio fra forever trey and i do all right but i mean it's it's an odd thing to have a bicycling to amongst the islands islands of the hybrid because like you can't cycle between the islands of pretty small so a lot of cycling to be done on the islands but a aged resign sex is on quite a remind the northern corner of remote island way north of <hes> the mainland of scotland and it consists of about three big gulf bulls united at the kind of thing big wide gulf bowls. How's the rate on the big radar heads that used to keep an eye on them all approaches to the united kingdom and those a small area of contingent there who who used to <hes> look off the place and man the final control of rooms and maintain the right had success truck and every time we out that that way which <hes> sometimes cure a mission we would often go to give them a little flying past <hes> fraught with danger sometimes because no florida very bakes except <hes> seabirds flying around so if you tried to buzz the base which was on some high ground right on the edge of a cranky field <hes> it used to run down the field and pull up and go over the base inverted which was always good laugh. <hes> you know you had to be sort of keep your fingers crossed. You wouldn't collect bird to write the airplane. I'm but <hes> yeah. I never actually got up there to <hes> say even person that i flew over over many a time on something said nick <hes> the golf ball raider isn't that doppler radar for it gulf bulls just an eight nine for the white whether domes they put over the right aw has to protect them in the bad weather gotcha nickname gulfport bull big giant golf balls yeah they they kind of like <hes> and <hes> as regards <hes> american pilots literally being abducted by aliens nam if being an american pilot into just smoking a bit of hope <hes> nothing to see here move on thinking moving on yeah. I run okay. I've got a previous engagement at seven o'clock and i still have to go pick up. It might be <unk>. Oral surgery from relieves on help. You feel okay and you guys and jeff. Just let we know for ford you. The audio do all right bye. Guys ain't already <hes> item eight. This is audio feedback. Let's have a listen. Hello airline pilot guys. I've been a listener her now for a few years enjoying the podcast and really appreciate the joy and laughter that it brings to me each week like many listeners i carry around my phone on and would rather listen to podcasts that you bring to us than most musica here on the radio or other podcasts. I have but one wish i hope i hope you'll grant me long ago. There was a great pilot writer philosopher by the name of antoine saint expert who i admire her greatly. I think i have read most of his books and i must admit that captain nick and captain expiration much in common not only they've been and both of them military pilots they have braved the unknown through flight not just all over the world but in the conflict that life brings to us each day i noticed the greatest difference between the two is that expre- didn't add much humor to his scribbling. Where's captain. Nick seems to take great delight. Whenever possible to find humor in the human experience the old pilots plane tail reminds me of the writings of captain saint exbury through in writing about his flying experiences nine years ago expert was able to touch the beauty of flight and fragility of the human experience and the suffering that might go with both give accolades to cap the neck by comparing him to antoine saint expert is my way of giving him the highest honor i can give to a great soul so it is with some trepidation than i request that captain nick might include an old pilots plane tale about the life of captain antoine exbury three and some of his exploits notably. This is a hard assignment because there were so many exploits that he wrote about it would be hard to choose from mm all of them again. I have not listened to all podcast episodes so captain. Nick might have already written detail about captain expiration. I might have missed it so there's always hope that that hasn't happened yet. Cheers to all byu carter boswell retired airline pilot and father of an anac me first officer that is awesome. I love the very last retired airline family. Hopefully hopefully i'll get a chance to fly with your son sometime. Maybe <hes> don't what what he's on. What equipment is on <hes> so nick. Oh <hes> do you have not done a plane tale about <hes>. What's the saint. Antoine assigned exbury no unsightly. My education was lacking because i had not heard of him so thanks very much indeed for the appointee in fact. I've got a new plane tail pretty soon because i'll need one ready for the show and i'm probably going to take a quick look. Oh can see if there's a <hes> a suitable story <hes> she will bio i can do that. I do note. I'm i'm very grateful. Field kind comments mints. I'm very reluctant to allow you to put me in the same category as this gentleman <hes> since <hes> <hes> you know he was a pretty famous and in a brilliant blake <hes> poetry as well as books etcetera cetera and a very brave chiampou bulletin <hes> in the walls <hes> he was awarded the chevalier elision donna <hes> which is very high award <hes> and the quadra and the <unk> palm so any also is is famous enough to appear on a fifty francs banknote <hes>. I noticed in brown <unk>. That's the sort of thing that happens to well-known. Recognize is famous. People are not going to get there but i would be delighted to take a look at these back for tuck pintail. Thanks for match after listening to this. I i had heard word of this gentleman his name but i'd never read any of his works and i <hes> on my kindle downloaded bought a kindle version of of one of his works called wind sand and stars and i started reading it and it is fascinating. It is just a is a a wonderful writer in justin pointed out that he wrote the little prince and that's a fairly famous in well read piece of literature as well. What was the little prince about a little little friends trying to live up to my it was he was <hes> bigger than a breadbox box but smaller than a washing machine or something. I don't know twenty s right and finally we're going to end the show with this one. Let's see chuck writes in. Hey thought it'd be guys when i saw this all concerned that he thought of us when he saw this he he says a passenger on an airplane saw something that made him stop and say hey h okay wait super okay. I know this is from fox. News dot com <hes> on an american airlines flight from chicago to omaha traveler evan noack captured footage of miniature horse near the front of the plane. According according to american airlines website trained miniature horses are permitted on flights as a service animal evan noack. <hes> said he noticed an unusual traveler while flying but there's a lot of redundancy <hes> says fortunately the miniature horse had been given an aisle all seats up. Keep going stuff. You're likely too big for a middle and wouldn't be able to appreciate the views from the window seat anyway. I have a point there obviously amused no act posted the footage with the caption at this time we would like to be in boarding with any active duty military families traveling with children under the age of three and horses <hes> in mid august the US department of transportation announced that miniature horses still were allowed to fly a service animals all cabins of commercial planes <hes> in a statement statement aiming to define the guidelines regarding protections for emotional support and psychiatric service cats dogs and the tiny coins <hes> the announcement did not bind signed airlines to fly all service miniature horses by law but did allude to penalties. If carriers violated the new rule <hes> the department of transportation has not had not previously banned commissioner horses according to the american miniature horse association the animals often stand between two and three feet tall and weigh between one hundred and fifty and two hundred and fifty pounds with an average life span of at least thirty years <hes> the yamaha s american miniature horse. I'm a member i've actually conversation on twitter with someone who has admitted shahal as an assistance animal <hes> who helps detect take the onset of a condition that she has i was asking <hes> how you restrain it during a flight because if you've while you're allowed up to two hundred and fifty pounds if you've got a two hundred and fifty pound whole standing <hes> by the seats addy stop it from flying the f you it a bit of bad turbulent so battiston <unk> what how do you evacuate an aircraft with a miniature miniature horse on both if if it goes out into the aisle it could stop and refused to move on how to get it down a slide that kind of stuff so i've i've got a lot of questions about the carriage of these <hes> larger animal well. I think the american miniature horse association lobby is a very powerful l. lobby. Apparently this is powerless to gun lobby. Kasai recommenced yeah try. They try to stay under the radar. I'll note on the video by the way <hes> there was no way for this horse to be in a middle seat because it was a cr j. a. <music> a like seven hundred nine hundred there is no middle middle seat. It wasn't even a main line. It was a regional carrier and yeah. I think this article is completing a little bit between emotional support and actual registered service animals. I think the they're talking specifically of using these resources as in their role as service animals not emotional support exactly now i did in the video i think ahead was wearing one of those harnesses but it was probably something about on ebay <hes> but it looked like it was an official service animal but i don't know where do you secure the what is the honest to i don't know and if you're a passenger who gets two hundred fifty pound all slant on you because it's just bounced off the ceiling. <hes> who do you sue. I don't know the horse yeah. That's it you know the <hes> in the one of the articles. I read it it said that <hes> because they were at the <hes> between the oil the bulkhead <hes> even though there was no bulkhead between first class seating and <hes> economy konami there <hes> kurt so there's a curtain there and so the horses like basically leaning up against the last row of first class and said she she felt bad because the horse kept bumping this guy seat but he seemed to be okay with it when okay this is not <hes> certainly issues but i'm being <hes> how you know the average domestic flight how long a a couple of hours tight average hour and a half hour. I'm just wondering what essential services that the animal has to provide in that shop barrier that could be provided either before or after oh by the kevin curran things so skeptical. The animal has to go with them to their destination to put central. Hold safely secured in an appropriate container which is bolted to the floor and that's very safe. I don't make the rules. I'm just trying that out. I'm not saying it or do do it. I'm just saying there are a few safety questions. I mean do they have seeing horses like seeing eye dogs yeah of course of course dr were was of course there is of course the horses defames mr go right to the source officer john stand arabia's well. This one went yes in course miniature tokyo. Now that is a sequel or a spinoff mr head oh boy well. I'm glad you're next week for american ninja horse association podcast conversation. It's a can of worms. I wanna bring my kind of words. Edging emotional support can of worms. Don't open your can of worms unless they're unless they smell good but most can of worms terms. Don't trust me. Worms don't want folks yeah. We gotta shut this thing down the gym and <hes> man. It was a lot of fun again. Thanks everyone for <hes> downloading listening listening to the show especially our live audience and those folks in our chat room. Thank you very much for attending another <hes> weekly episode assode and <hes> if you are new to the airline pilot guy show and you want to learn more. We have a place for you to go. It's called the airline pilot guy dot dot com website where oh by the way i should mention somebody asked about mugs last show and all you do by the way i didn't even know this but we have have coffee mugs on red bubble <hes> that have the acme logo on it probably the older one but we can go in there may be fix it up and you know spit if it up a little bit but anyway <hes> they're <hes> just go to the website and it says AP g. store and then scroll down and click on the red bubble banner and and you'll be taken to the red bubble airline pilot guy store and you can order your coffee mug travel mug all kinds of stuff there right apparently yeah yeah. Did you do that or you. Did that guy okay. I just clicked on a few things that i thought people might want a love it well. Thank you very much so so <hes> just wanted to point that out so we have merchandise we have. ABC live we have plain tales standalone site <hes> by the way that can also it'll be a standalone feed for you to get on your podcast client device or app and all kinds of other stuff there so i'm getting tongue tied here so maybe i should just handed off to dr staff and she can tell you about how you can follow. All of us on social media associates head over to twitter dot com and use the handle at a p g crew. You can find all of us there. You can find our individual twitter information into the top of the page. Come hang out and interact with us. In two hundred eighty characters list you can also head to facebook dot com slash airline pilot guy all kinds of community the action going interaction going action direction all of the above <hes> information about things happening in the world of airline nights aviation our guest meet ups and much much more so hope to either absolutely and we're. We're also on a hanger when see heals your l. L. come on. You're on man. I wouldn't go in there for a while. Okay don't worry. EPG listeners. Please join us on our slack teams. Slack is communication coordination and sharing platform. It works on your mobile laptop browser on slack we share news and ideas we suggest episode in plain tales topics we plan events and meet ups to get into the slack team. Please email me at slack at airline pilot guy dot com. That's s. l. a. c. k. sierra alpha charlie kilo at airline pilot guy hi dot com or send me a tweet with your preferred email address to act hill and i'll send you an invitation that's tell spell hotel india one one echo one and you slap thanks for doing that forest managing that slack group and thanks to our producer liz <hes> <hes> for all the hard work that she does to make it look like we know what we're talking about and until next time wishing you all i gone unlimited visibility and tailwinds take care and goblins jersey. All i want to say goodbye the sky eh to be such a good good deal gala started a PG open doors for loan. I helped them to their seats old guy uh-huh oh. I got no friends because i'm always i just don't have the time <music> this soul food just fine on blah blah guy. I can okay learn.

SHERLOCK Founders Crack the Case of CRISPR Diagnostics

"The crisper revolution. This is Christopher Potts a podcast dedicated to the world of genome engineering. Take a break and join us. Guide conversations with an expert. Crisper cast about this cutting edge. Science high on the graph cuts many interesting guests. O'meara we day and Jonathan Gutenberg from the mcelwain Institute for Brain Research that might be. These are famous further Now before we go on to talk about Chandler let's welcome Jonathon and Omar crisper cats Oman and Jonathan. Before we go under talk about Sherlock. Could you tell us a little bit about your educational background with a few? Yes Oh this is Omar. I did my Undergrad at it. Awhile ago tacklers. Airing biological engineering went in various doing of by medical devices biotechnology and that led me doing an md. Ph D. Program at Harvard's where I did the first two years of medical school just completed my phd by the euro from Mit. And now I guess my medical training on hold to start a lab with Jonathan at MIT to continue tackling questions around gene therapy and gene editing technology development and I also demanded. Mit's it's actually I was biological engineering and mass and then I went to Harvard or my PhD in systems. Biology and I graduated. I guess offended about eight months ago now and since we've been running this new lab where I'm trying to explore new questions in. How do we mind ballot Neutrals actually that's interesting. So both of you met in Undergrad. And then that's when you kind of realized you like working on similar things and so was it planned to kind of work together later. Did that just happen? I mean in Funk Slavic We didn't plan to join funds lab but we had worked together on a senior design project. That was actually kind of a crazy idea about using engineering doctor like probiotics. For some you know Glamour Tori take it was just a phenomenal work and continue doing some research together after that on new microscopy modalities but I think it was pretty fortuitous that we both ended up in lap. Okay I see. That's great the type of work that you've done is very interesting and one of the main things. Obviously in your project was the discovery cass thirteen. So which was obviously fundamental to that of Sherlock. Can you talk a little bit about that about how you came about to find this enzyme and how that led to kind of eighty one now? Yeah Yeah So. Sherlock is are highly sensitive and specific crisper diagnostics platform and really exciting. That crisper it can be used for sensing quake acids applications for disease detection. But you know we definitely didn't go into graduate school interested in Diagnostics. See I was much more excited. About molecular tool development broad stroke gene therapy entering the Z's and as part of that is really both of us are really interesting exploring sort of the diversity of crisp. So everyone was really excited about cast nine. You know six years ago when we have this question what other enzymes in the crisper world existed and other ones that might have unique features that be useful or things. We couldn't even about yet. And so we did a lot of bioinformatics to find. Christopher systems we characterized by chemically and bacteria. Really interesting ones was this cass thirteen inside and what was unique about it is targeted. Arna instead of DNA and that was fairly unique because all the enzymes are really known at the time. Useless tools were DNA targeting and being able to go after. Aren a really allows you to do so much you can modulate you know jeans. You can add it residues jeans temporarily so it's kind of like a temporary dean modification and we made a realized you could actually do diagnostics as well because this enzyme when bound to its target it not only with cleavage target but it would also leave other molecules in Solution Properties. Kind of light saying like. Hey I found my target. I'm just GonNa leave everything and tell everyone that I found this. Target of internal more abstract away thinking about it and so but we could use fluorescent reporters on when they would cleave they become forescent so discuss thirteen. They sleep released essence. When you're bound any greg asa target and we were able to make this test sensitive single molecule. It was very quick cheap. And so we kind of you know went down this path. Berry or to sleep from just you know asking these questions. Crisper biology not really knowing what we would bind and we took that path to many different areas including crisper diagnostics. Certain and more so right and I remember reading about the first time and the ending like a year later there was an upgraded version which was even more sensitive. So that's really great and what struck me most was that the readout is so simple. So once you have a very sensitive method is it tried but you can actually just use strips and in your sample and you can actually see read out on the Strip. That's correct one of the great things about this. Guy Platform is that by changing the piece of coronary or DNA. That's cleaved by this activity. Dome are talk about. We can change it from like flourescence to something that could be out by paper strip or there've been people who've done it so it actually changes the optical properties fluid or even potentially electronic readouts. So this kind of lateral flow caper based diagnostic is really powerful because modulator of the platform allows you to swap the readouts depending on the application. And they're just really fun to kind of think about different ways to developing difficult thing about being in lab and having these enzymes I mean. It's really thrilling. First to discover that night I remember when we first Arthritis S. twelve Track Nichols she wanted. People thought there was only task nine. And now there's entirely new thing so there's discovery aspect but even beyond that once we have the technologies you can kind of. Let your machination right wild so we can say. What can we detect? No CAMIS detect cancer. We detect different patient mutation byerly a bacterial DNA or can we detect even using different color metric readouts? And the thing you don't see of course is that there's so many things that we tried that fails but you just have to keep trying and let your imagination play with it and yeah it can make really interesting stuff like this letter. Florida. Yeah I think that's a very interesting point especially on the part of feeling because in the end you'll see these amazing science nature papers and it's hard to imagine the hard work which has gone into it and alert trailing behind it. So yeah you're absolutely right just keeping it is probably the best way to go about it. Maybe speak a little bit about the implications of detecting. Arnie's one thing is obviously a lot of viruses have added new homes and would it be useful to detect oddity instead of DNA so just to clarify. We can actually do both Arnie. Engineer sections so one of the important steps of this detection reaction. Is We pre application before the castor team detection so if you were just doing customer team detection would get in the low maybe PICO MOLAR HYPHEN SIMILAR? Range of sensitivity. Which is you know. Millions of molecules Michael Bieber but if we combine the reaction a set of enzymes that can actually amplify the nucleic acids in solution a little bit. It can bring up like a single molecule or ten molecules to a level where casting undetected so when we essentially as we can turn Arnie or DNA into a lot of DNA three apple vacation in an application. We add a t summer promoter so we can take the amplified union. Make it into ornate Caster team so all that works one reaction. It's very quick and very simple at one temperature but allows us to do detect DNA ad but General question where are needed action is also useful. I mean yeah. There are a lot of Arne viruses. Bacteria have aren't a signatures. Yo Sixteen SRNA sequences or even transcripts of antibiotic resistance genes. Cancers are also really interesting. Arnie level right because a lot of transcripts refuse like genes become fused together and you can detect those aren a general. Arnie signatures are better than you know. Signature is because they're going to be a higher copy number it's actually easier to attack them her. Saola or whatever. You're doing thanks for clarifying that. Now that you have this great technology you've started a new company right so that's locked biosciences. Can you tell a little bit about what your rules are going to be in this company? And how you balance working in a lab and having a company of your own. It's just a very interesting position to be in your for us. Erz funding to do the early academic development of these technologies and you publish papers and talk about them at conferences. But I think there's always on missing piece where you WANNA be able to. You know be like what's next. Retake working really make an impact for society and people patients and so. It's hard to do that because of the capital of its needed to really scale translate technology Joe Product. And so I think you know getting to in this offense. A company has been really rewarding experience where we got Interact with different types of people who are thinking about the business of how you actually get the Oslo make a product that can you know? I guess. Make the company sustainable. You know we work with people who think about. Actually you know how you make a test. That's reliable can be accurate across hundreds of patients you know. It's one thing to a proof of concept in a lab. But then you know when you're deploying something that can actually inform how doctors make decisions about People's care and actually lives. You have to be sure that these tests are super reliable and that they'll give you the right answer every time and so. It's not easy work but I think we've assembled a really good team. And have you know? There's nine co-founder excluding following and Jim Collins originally helped us develop the technology. But we're in their labs and we brought on other really awesome expertise like David. Walters Co founder of alumina has really been helping craft sort of division business side of Diagnostics Company. And I think never fantastic. Co On who has like twenty years. I six experience so I think you have a really good team around this. That hopefully can bring this patient soon. I hope so too. Good luck with that. And if you had to estimate when do you think these diagnostic kits would be available in the market and secondly would they be available for just anyone to buy or are you specifically going to be sending them to doctors only? Yeah so I think it's a great question. I think the feature vision will be kind of easy accessibility. Because one of the aspects of the technology is that we can do testing probably wherever by of course there's many different iterations of technology and each of those has to go through two different aspects of regulatory approval. So I think that will probably initially focus on not actually giving them directed patients. And as for the timeline it's always hard to predict but we're moving quickly. I think he had been rapidly out. And a nice thing. Is that because the technology so easy to design and test were hoping that we'll have product quite soon and another thing of course is the technology's not only being adopted by the company but there's many different applications across the human health in agricultural applications and even interesting environmental applications collaborators. Who are interested in using it to track different populations logically fish migrating other west coast store looking at different types of beetles example. So I think it's really exciting to see how a foundational technology like is. Arnie detection can really be adopted by so many people to make difference in some areas. That's really great. I do hope that we get to see a lot of these applications soon and another thing that maybe I wanted to ask you about was that after Sherlock. Now you're also working at the McGowan research institute. Both of you have your own labs so could you this little bit about other projects that you guys are working on ought interested in think. Both of us are interested in furthering gene. Gene delivery technologies. So I think the United States still has a limitations. That doesn't it's not efficient in all cell types especially like brain cells and it also. The current uniting tool still can't insert the name while either and so I think a lot of our work is looking at technologies that goes beyond crisper that can manipulate even more efficiently in more tissues. So that more diseases can actually be targeted and beyond that. Were also interested in a second problem. Gene therapy which is that. Even if you had the perfect you know monitor. It would still be hard to deliver these tools to the right tissue cells and had them specifically go in to officially and so were currently trying to explore for new types of viruses and other types of modalities that can better to get nucleic acid into cells for that purpose and so remain to technology development approaches. Then beyond that. We're also understand using these tools to sort of probe aging biology. Mr Of understand why cells dysfunctional while they become senescence and began to understand that better. Can we use our tools actually reverse senescence and actually regenerate tissues across multiple aging associated diseases? Great that sounds really interesting and I recently in the last one or two years especially there have been so many crisper related companies and crisp searches accelerating so one of the things that was curious about was that corresponded self is fairly new. It's less than a decade old. So how do you think the next five years to change this? Where do you see this field in say five years? Well I mean of course as the technology more widely available the applications will be more and more impressive so I think one great thing about having all of these different methods out there is that really creates a really worthwhile toolbox for people to use biology. Not only quite amazing to see but I think that it's always great to bet on biodiversity being more and more izing so I think we'll continue to find new enzymes a new techniques and those will probably allow us to do things I haven't done before like airy more efficient. Integration is Amar mentioned too on dividing cells and other aspects and lastly I think that as people become more familiar with the techniques deficiency will certainly go up as these new techniques are kind of coming through may always involve aspect of debugging you look at the original cast nine. Do you mentioned Abor- I'm the ending. Efficiencies are actually quite low to what you might expect today back then they were incredibly transformative. But you can just see how technology wants it has its initial debut gets to mature and become better and better so we'll see that maturation of these technologies and people will have higher higher efficiencies with editing. And be able to do them in more complex models as well so it's really exciting time and I think that there's much much ward left to be discovered right. It is absolutely an exciting time. And you mentioned people getting more used to technology in the scientific community. Sure they'll make even more developments on the public side. I don't know if you have had the chance to talk about your technology with the general public or say non-scientists but if you have can you celebrate about how people are perceiving this technology and do you think that will improve time or? Are they already excited about this? Just like crisper gene editing in general. Yeah this engine editing agenda so it's a general question just in case you have had any interactions where you have basically either explain your project to the public or from what you see around you. How people are reacting to crisper in general. Yeah I mean I think given some talks to sort of general audiences before and I think most people will leave pretty inspired than cited about the technology. And it's probably because more we frame our interests from like treating disease perspective. I think great crisper has so much potential to tweet disease and actually cure people of diseases. That are really nasty also goes even beyond healthcare. You know for agriculture. It can make you know farming. What better yields actually improve the world from that standpoint and so I think you know generally people when here those applications feel pretty good. I think more recently there have been a lot of questions with the KRISPIES China. About you know what's going on with that. Why ARE PEOPLE UPSET ABOUT IT? Or what does it mean and so? I think we find ourselves explaining that type of sort of situation. Won't you know what the defense of between Germany is treating diseases? And so you know. Component of it is a lot of people. I don't think appreciate necessarily the difference between off. You treat someone's disease you're not actually propagating genetic information that will go to someone you know kids and so I think you know. Part of this is just explaining. No all these companies are doing actually to make a really big difference. It's not GonNa do anything that's at the FLEA BS. So I think overall I mean our experience. People seem pretty optimistic. But there's definitely explaining we have to right great okay so we always end. Nana fun questions so coming up with one for you guys was easy because you have such an interesting name of your company and your kids between the two of you who shared lock and who's Watson I mean think better cartoons moriarty born thinking about having a good working relationship is that we have to have flexibility with our roles so it depends on the day of course but in general. I think that I don't know it's probably half half half sometimes. You're on the depending on the day. I have more of the medical background. So maybe I'm close to your lots of regard problem with Opiates or whatever. Know it's yeah. I think the more board things. What's the next acronym because that was certainly the hardest part of Sherlock with me that out and there are a lot of different inaugurations that went through Columbus Candy so yeah I think it's really important to have fun with the day to day. And that's what makes it great experience. Yeah absolutely it is absolutely important to the great abbreviations. I think you guys have done great and you said the bad high so every new respond to allow has to kind of step up to that level and come up with motivations so yeah we're looking forward to what your next one will be great. Thank you so much. This has been a relief. Fine and so many. Thanks for listening to Crisper cuts. I invite you to check out the blog bench for more great crisper content.

Find The Truth About Wealth Podcast With David Chudyk

"Hello everybody, Mark Maher. Your lifestyle entrepreneur and profounder off simple podcast cloud platform that gives the power to the podcast to flourish like beautiful flower because we want make sure the podcast Sir had the power to share their voice with the world without any limitation with us we'll give you unlimited everything under one call. Hemi said all of that if you're in multiple, parsoes check us out. And today I wanNA introduce another amazing offs Danny, your friend of mine who is going to share with you some tips and secrets that will help you take your podcast in game to the next level. So without further ado, take the time to introduce yourself and tell us a little bit about yourself, Sherp Hey, mark. Thanks for having me. I always loved being on other podcasts and. So I'm a financial planner and I've been working with individuals and business owners for going on almost two decades and About a ago I changed firms and in the financial planning business, a whole lot of compliance and when I change firms I had the ability to to start a podcast and. So I've always listened to podcast and a lot of the podcast hosts that I listened to. They feel like they're your best friends and you know them and you trust them and I really felt like if I develop a financial planning podcasts, it would just take my practice in my credibility and and would differentiate me a whole new level. So I'm loving every minute of it. It's fallen. It's a lot of work. There's a lot to learn but but yeah, it's really cool stuff. Yeah. Man I can totally relate when I win before got into the pot wonderful world will podcasting I. Listen to so many different casts out there like from your held your financial, your you know marketing facebook and whole nine yard and I was like I got so much information I'm like I need to share this back. That's where I started started my podcast for entrepreneurs more specifically digit entrepreneurs will want to take their business to the next level so I'm so glad you took declined a halt becoming a podcast as well. So tell me how has the journey been reveal? How has this journey your journey has been has been rewarding what things that you have learned that you didn't know before. Well you know one of the things that it has been especially in the beginning is little frustrating because it's hard I mean. which microphone do you buy which which program do you use? How do you record which who who should host for you and and all of that so everybody that that I've talked to that says, you know what advice do you have one starting a podcast? The advice is your first few episodes will totally suck. That's just what it is. But nobody will really think they're that bad other than you but. Know the others and the comes and the coughs you'd get to where you don't say on that much. But you still do and you can get to where you're better at editing them out. But yet your first fewer just not going to be all that great but but you just gotTa do it. I gave myself a deadline of having a podcast showed. Complete by by the end of two, thousand, hundred, nineteen. So on July thirty first is when I uploaded a seven minute episode and I'll never listen to it again. Was it that dude. What's really interesting is if you've never podcast and and I've done a little bit of recording of it on some radio commercials. So I've heard my voice and when I hear my voice cringe and and you probably cringed when you first heard your voice that's just how hears USA nobody thinks you have a bad voice it doesn't sound like what you think it will sound like so. I actually shared my podcast to a podcasting facebook group and said Hey who wants to just give some critiques and somebody and this is a person who never meet I never have met. They said you have a wonderful speaking voice which I would never ever ever think that that's what somebody would say about me and this person wasn't just being nice just because they don't know me they don't. They'll never meet me they. They literally said that I have a good speaking voice and that's just not something that I think that I have. So go figure yeah I. Think you hit the nail right on the head is like we are our own worst critic and we want you know the best the best best and in the process of getting the best sometime, we just stop and I totally agree with you I am I heard my worst I was like Oh my God i sound horrible became believers get you know because. Most of the time when we're listening, we're listening to other people voices number are, for example, if somebody on the phone as your friend, your significant other or whoever you listening to the voice, they listen to, and then your washing never heard and so far I am so glad I became a caster because now I knew what? Voice sounds like and they're whatever is work is it is what it is and few get over that feared that challenge or that slum would call. Once you get over that it's become so much better revolting and a number of people that you get to meet they're like wow. So tell me Ma a comedy different people have you met I thought with. What is your format off your podcast is a soul nor interview or what form do you follow? So I actually I have two PODCASTS I. Have the weekly wealth podcast and the weekly wealth podcast is a general financial planning podcast for anybody we cover top, it covers the mindsets, tactics and strategies that help you to build wealth. Now, the wealth-building principles are universal whether you're making fifty million dollars a year or you're making minimum wage. So we we talked to a broad range of people and most of the shows are interviews. So for instance, I interviewed Doctor Jan Price. WHO DOES She has a company that Helps Families Plan for college scholarships. So obviously, that's a huge huge financial planning topic, right if you had a teenager and she just talked about the financial planning the the the scholarship process, and of course, we gave her her information where you can buy her course and get that information I've interviewed attorneys on estate planning. So most of our episodes were doing somebody that has some valuable information, but we do give them the opportunity to plug their service or their websites and and so on and so forth. But but what I'm doing is Let's say that one of my clients says, Hey, you know what I know this ain't mark and I think he might need your financial planning service and I'm just making this up I don't know if it's true but but he has a fifteen year old and marks mentioned that man college costs a lot of money and he wants to talk to a financial adviser about. Saving for college so I've my email that episode that I did with Dr Jen Price Tomorrow said Hey mark. You know your Buddy John said that you and I might be a good fit for financial planning and the way check out this podcast about the financial financial aid process that I did with an expert and you might enjoy it. So that does is that puts me in kind of a just a different light than somebody else who just wants to talk about You know just get right into the money and how much do you want invest and how much should you invest and and everything else and I do think that when you're linked in? Says I'm a podcast or and financial planner, and if I do email my podcast to you as a prospect, I just think there's so much more credibility there. All right Ma'am. So glad you boy because that's like a one of the A siegler right there. I think what people can use when this podcasting. Hey I want to increase Melissa ship so if they can do what you. Just said email you'll link of your podcast somebody who can benefit from me, and they will become a rain fan and then you have another listener symbol techniques, things like that. That's what really helps and talk to you by like us the mindset over financial part of it. I'm sure there was the mindset shift when you become a podcast for as well. So was there a can? You share about that hard i. go like Yes. So a couple of things number one is everybody I talked to I'm thinking, Hey, would that person be a good podcast guest? So in the financial planning world, we have their life insurance reps that come talk to us about just different different life insurance company. So you know you have one of them, come on the guests and Talk, a talk about advanced life insurance tactics Again, you know I have an attorney that's in a a networking group with me. Hey, do you wanna be on my podcast talk about just the basics of estate planning? gave him some some exposure made me look really good. So was the big thing is I'm always looking for guests to be on the podcast. The other thing is. You're looking for value just to give value I'm not selling anything other than I WANNA be your friend and I wanna sound trustworthy, and then if you've listened to enough episodes and at one point in your life, you just feel like I need a financial planner I should be the obvious choice because you listen to me every week you hear my voice, you hear my cheesy sense of humor which I'm not gonNA hide you know and I. Think That's beautiful about Europe pretty kind of energetic guy and that's who you are and if somebody says, Hey, this guy's to energetic for me. Well, guess what you're not gonNA work out and be a good fit for them and That's okay and I think that podcasting and video blogging it just it. It shows your personality more than the written word does because written word can be taken out of context and everything else. Definitely I agree with it. You know like when you talking to tech somebody, you may have met in one way and the year then they read it a different way because of the whatever is going on in life at that time then like what do you mean I wasn't trying to me know wherever, and then especially you know that I totally agree you can definitely take a small things can miss easily misinterpreted and I'm so glad you water up your personality, Fars podcasts goes and Does literally what people are track to either they WANNA be your friends or they don't want to be. And people like you know like you said, I have energy which I do because I'm so excited because every time I started this podcast things like people this kind of high energy positive energy thing the nature of the Blake. Yeah. I want to be in your WanNa, listen to you, and then what are you feel like far as the energy, Lagos would anybody listen to a PODCAST I. All for example I'll stay right now hill who this is or more a I am a lifestyle onto newer. What anybody listen to that? Yeah. You know and I guess there may be some like if there's a podcast about ancient literature or. Are I don't know I mean but there there may be. You know I. have an attorney friend who who wears flipflops to loan closings and that's just him and he says, you know what? There are some real estate agents that they don't want to recommend me just because but you know what I I can't be everything to everybody and I wear flip flops closing and I'm very competent attorney and I just don't wear suits and ties. So you know there may be somebody that says, Hey, this mark o'meara he's way too energetic for me and I just and. You know what? That's okay. Because the beautiful thing about the podcasting world is you're getting your roll out to so many people that you know I don't know how many how many of your listeners you need to convert customers to be worthwhile but it's a small small percentage if you get a few of one percent or whatever it is. So not everybody has to love you. But if you do and then however you're monitoring your actual service, I think you'll get enough of them. So yeah, definitely. Reminds me like small small group of aid reminds me of the book that a a great friend set code and wrote the Purple Card or the group over, and then literally talks about you need to just literally small small small group people that who you want a small group of people who love you. They will do anything for you as compared to a logical, they would like you but they won't listen to you. So let me tell you about my my other podcast. So the weekly wealth podcast. Is Very broad it it applies to you it applies to multimillionaires that applies to minimum wage it's but now I own a property and casualty insurance agency but I'm also a financial planner. So if you need home and auto insurance, we have we we we have people who handle that and do a really good job for you, and then hopefully we would also handle your retirement and everything else. So I started thinking last year all financial planners everybody needs a niche right and and most financial planners. They want to say I work with doctors because obviously you know doctors have some excess cash flow. So I started thinking my niche should be insurance agents, right. So let's say you own the Mark Kumar Independent Insurance Agency, and let's say you had nine or ten employees. You would need a retirement plan you would need benefits you need everything else. So I have another podcast. Called, financially covered podcast for Insurance Agency owners, their money and their profits. So what I do there is about four out of every five episodes we we interview somebody from the industry. So maybe a rep from an insurance software company or maybe I've interviewed like an HR person who talks about hiring and firing, and then about one out of every four or five episodes, we talk about a financial planning type bum topics what type of retirement plan might work for your agency in the whole idea again is that If enough of these agents here me. Whatever percentage of them will like me hopefully a few anyway and then you know when they when they need that service, I should be the obvious choice so. That's the theory anyway. So we'll see how it turns out, but but it's a lot of fun also. Yeah. So how do you go about finding these people to interview is a system that you follow like, Oh, they need to have a B and c then interview them or what well health a most of my guests so far have been people that I already have a relationship with. So for instance, like I said I interviewed an attorney, he's just a friend and an HR coach that's actually done some work for me. So probably eighty percent of them have been people that already have a relationship with in some way, and then the other guests have been from guess what does everybody else? Where does everybody else in this world come from social media? So there's a facebook group that for every topic in the world, and there's a facebook group or a hundred facebook group for taught for podcast guests so. That's that's a good place to find them as well. But you also you know when you're interviewing someone sight unseen that you don't necessarily have a relationship with you don't you get a few that don't show up you know for interview and not everybody is as competent and qualified as they. Would initially want to appear to be so so how do you read those bad apples? You know like, do you do a pre interview before you podcasting the high worship process? Just curious there's no process we interview and most of them have turned out at least exceptional at least acceptable and there have been one or two that I've just not released just because. And actually in the beginning, they may have been even my fault with poor audio quality and technical things that I hadn't. Hadn't quite figured out yet. I did have one interview where The the content was awesome, but there was a beeping in the background and this guy actually talks about podcasting. So we couldn't have a how to start a podcast show with poor audio quality. So email the file to him he's like, I don't know what happened. I can't fix it but let's do it again. So we did another we record it again and it came out. Great. So I you know having. I mean I. Guess There are people out there. Were there podcast is their main source of revenue, the John Lee Dumas? Mrs Of the world and This is something where you know definitely is is a few hours per week but there's a whole lot else going on in my life as well. So probably ideally we should have a pre interview but in practice only so many hours a day. Exactly you know sometimes. People that what they say, and then hope for the best. And hopefully, things work out sometime. They don't if they don't work out Yamane experience now you learned for me. Have you had an interview where you literally pulling t Gimme something. They're not gonNA use, and then you know that I could have some content. Because most people that I've interviewed, they have something to sell. So they want to talk to me and they want to have. You know their website in the show notes and hopefully you would go to their website and sign up for their newsletter or sign up for their service. So most everybody I've interviewed has been an entrepreneur and it may have been the opposite. It's like you gotta get them to shut up somehow I clicked this podcast needs to end were were too long and and So yeah, I've interviewed a couple couple authors. There's a Tom Corley wrote a book called Rich Habits that I read a few years ago and he basically he's a CPA and actually a financial planner and he did a study on the habits that rich people have. And just like they were like how much time a rich people spend watching TV versus poor people and how many books rich people read versus and it wasn't like a judgmental thing like you're a bad person. You're poor. It was just you know people all over certain income read certain amount of books per year and they they even a certain amount less. Junk food calories per per day than So I just reached out to him on twitter and hey I love your book. I read it. Would you like to do a podcast episode and we we did a coup episode you know and and you know it was it was it was good quality content on both sides. Oh my God. That's amazing. Amazing. Can you share a little bit of what did you get out of it after the podcast just reality you know I mean I got to meet somebody. Cool. Who is is I mean relatively famous and. I don't want to say where is. Someone who is where I want to be but someone who definitely has he's a quality quality. CPA slash financial planner that does really good work and also somebody who has some he's done some really strong research and and and I learn you know you know some of the habits that to develop to take my game the next level. What I also learned was. So I've probably spent maybe five hundred dollars on podcasting equipment maybe even that much. So it's not like but once you have a podcasting microphone and you have a logo that I went on fiber and paid someone dollars and I think I paid fifty or seventy, five dollars for and I do have to say how cool intro music now you're like kind of on the same level as anybody so they don't know. What you're doing and but it's kind of that grassroots type medium where you just reach out to an author and they may say, yes, and then you know you're both podcasters. Exactly, you never know and the biggest thing is like some people who are starting are they're happy but me have the mindset of I am not good enough disguise up level ten and I'm just starting law. and. I might not even get to that person like the way I look at like you never know until you ask you might just get yes fifty chess Oh, speaking of which When somebody starting out right what recommendation you give a person just starting a podcast like dude just got in disbelief a podcast created podcast and then for the first ten episode, what recommendations would you give them in terms of software and how to record it? Yeah. So if it Will prior to talking with you out of Said just do zoom zoom for interview and and get free and it's a good starting starting points Now, Hindenburg is a great software for editing and it's it's I think three hundred dollars if you buy it or you can rent it for like forty dollars every three months Hindenburg I've I've done well with Hindenburg and I'm still learning and unlike anything else any software nobody uses it to the fullest but Hindenburg is pretty cool. I would definitely say that you have to commit. To however long, you're going to commit say I'm going to do a podcast a week for a year or for six months or there's no. If I do a podcast this week there can't be the if there has to be I'm doing one and if that means you interview your mother or your sister or just come up with some content yourself, you have to do it because you just if you don't do this week, then you won't do one next week and then pretty much a podcast is done and and I've heard some statistics on how many podcasts don't make it past. Ten or twenty episodes, and it's a lot a lot of them so. I totally agree and I agree with you. So the Monica mate commitment you need to have I think someone who dress starts out they had the motivation level like let's say level one hundred, and then that that point if you just do one thing record ten or fifteen episodes while the motivational level is up there and then release it to what the. Next few months and that is done and they're off the off to the races as compared to every single week. Hey, I'm going to pass only to find somebody else I need to find somebody as positive if we do that and you spending more time finding somebody and then less time to call, right? Right Right the other thing is I think. Expectations needs to be tempered. So you know we all hear Joe Rogan you know whatever his new contract is and having downloads. Let's be honest not that many people care at least when you started not that many people care about what had to say not that many people cared about what I have to say. So few people listen I would email my. Entire. Base in a in a blasphemer hey, check out my new podcast and I'm thinking I'm going to give a thousand Dow. How could everybody's GonNa stop what you're doing and listen to my podcast you know ninety percent of those emails don't get opened and a few of them click on it. So it takes a while to get traction and it does but. I recycle podcasts and share on twitter and you look back at an episode of Laos. Three months ago our releases and nobody listened, and then eight people listen to it yesterday and I don't know who those people aren't how they founded, but there's a people you know so. Yeah definitely, those bench listener reggae I guess you could say rather than watcher. The people when they find out about you and then they listen to your podcast now or listen to everything you got there. I have done that multiple times because when I was listening to the whole podcasting, do where I'll just go for a long walk eight to twelve miles like two three hours walk in like whatever, and then find somebody like going to do the whole episode series that have a whole season wherever they call it. So speaking of season is series, which format do you follow season being like you had one season and then you? Have ten episode and releasing you take a break or series being you do it every single week or the week or whatever the case might be. Yeah. So on the weekly wealth podcast, because that's fairly general, I, have an episode coming out every week you know to be honest I don't quite understand the series. Kinda. Concept when you're doing something like that. So I think we're just going to release you know new episode every week we'll get up I what episode up to twenty something but you know at a point will be at episode three hundred. and. Then on the on the financially covered podcast, there's a little bit more specialization there. So I haven't been as diligent because you need more special. I don't WanNA say diligent but we're we're looking at more specialized guests there. So not everybody has something to say that specifically would resonate with an insurance agency owner so. Little harder to find guests there. But were were definitely. There's at least two episodes a month coming out. Every episode, every podcast. Every show is different obviously depending on who is listening and things that nature I totally agree with that. So when you create a podcast if you want to. Interview base it becomes so much easier to create content because you literally asking caution and the person that has. And some people have this format which I agree with it I don't understand it. They have fifteen cautioned boom boom boom boom boom, and go to every single episode of the same format and I'm like, why are you doing with that where you get nothing out of it and then what do you recommend the fifteen question bullet-point conversation so what I normally do is with guests I will ask them to email me two to four questions that can guide our conversation and you're normally. You know and I'll give them example like what are some of the biggest mistakes you see people making your field? So the podcast normally starts out with hey, this is David Chuck and welcome to the PODCAST and If you want to have a would like to work with the financial adviser I'll have my link in the show notes today we have Jim, Smith and Jim does this and so hey, Jim, tell us a little bit about yourself and about your your personal life. So then you know they'd tell about their how Long. They've been in business and a little bit about their family because I want to build were poor. So I think that's part of podcasting is people need to like you and then we'll have not fifteen questions. We'll have two or three questions that they've given us, and then you know maybe we chitchat around that question for five or six or seven minutes each and then you know we get to the closing and it's you know between twenty five and thirty thirty five minutes. Total is is, what is what are episodes end up being? Okay 'cause I had like when I started on I did the whole bullet point question boom boom boom boom, and after third episode I personally boredom like Audi no, and then what I did was I started like in the back Oh when the monitor was when the video was working or when I turned it off I was started yawning because I only know what to do. So having this common conversation, you going to learn so much and then you more engaged as computer fifteen point cushions. So if somebody just creating content like a solo, poor kind of thing, any advice you can give like what kind of content should they create or how can they create a content that the audience will? So everybody cares about something they're passionate about something and there is a podcast about everything out there from politics to to. Wrestling to eighties new music and movies to money to to make money to had to be a minimalist. So what you're what you're passionate about is what your podcast needs to be about. So I can take a money topic and I can babble about it for thirty minutes without really that many notes just because it's something that I know and I believe in and you know there are other people I can talk about sports or anything else so it has to be something that you're passionate about. First of all and then second of all. I think and and I hate this but I think it's reality that you cannot. Intend. To make money off of your podcast for a long time I just don't think it's it's you're not going to make money off of it. You're going to hopefully build a following and hopefully that in my case, hopefully, a certain percentage of that following. Will become a client those that fit, and in my business I don't need that many clients you if your bigger clients to make a huge huge difference but. Know there's no corporation that's GonNa pay me tens of thousands of dollars to talk about their product because I don't have millions of listeners yet and I know that I ever will. You know cause I'm not necessarily looking for that. I, mean I'm looking to could add one really good client per month that would make my podcast hugely insanely successful. Okay I mean look. Quality or quantity I guess is always the key. If you have quality listeners, quantity quality people who are listening to your show that that definitely makes a huge difference and on the just the tip podcast that I actually listen to this morning talked about Mommy. And how did he put it? He put their two ways to make money off your podcast. One is your audience is the product meaning that you build up a big enough audience and then some companies talking to you. It's going to pay you to talk about a product. So you know I I listen to the Jim podcasts he talks about sports and he pitches all kinds of products and it might be like a razor. So go to this razor sites slash Jim Rome, and then that's how they're paying him a little piece and that's great because he has a great following. The other way to make To make money off of your podcast is to have your podcast be the service. So it again my in my case, I'm looking to to get financial planning clients eventually from from my podcast. So if you had a million dollars to invest or just you didn't know what to do with it hopefully, you've been listening to my podcast, you like me you feel like I'm trustworthy. You feel like I'm competent and then you would email me we will do a zoom call and then We would provide a service to you and that's how I would get paid right? Absolutely. Yeah. The there's so many different bob ways to monetize one. Obviously, you don't shape. Another one is the service space and third one is the donation. If you like to my podcast, his link in the show is donated to my colleagues and I will continue to produce this valuable content that you like which is so many different ways of doing than digital products so on and so forth. So. When I went to ask you is like how is there will let me put it this way. What we have you found that has been working for you to get the word out there. So people can listen to your podcast. Yeah. So that's the hard part because So I have a book of business. So we do send emails out to hundreds of people and I also in the PODCAST, ask people to please like and subscribe, and if Buddy please tell them about the podcast, I do share on twitter share on on facebook But yeah, I mean I don't know I mean how do you have any other strategies because that would certainly be a great thing for me and I know that you know you can pay services to maybe that would be a good thing to pay services to market it a little bit more but you know I don't know. Definitely I. Think Service if you WANNA, do it do it in the way like was advertisement because when you go to the speaking from experience, if you go to the paid service part of abated, Dave might just give you a listener who are based another country and never going to use your company or your services whatsoever to control more of a go to facebook and equal. Literally just you the facebook advertise men were like, Hey I got this great content you know opted in and you send them to a link. So that way you could argue link. Your audience to the Pacific like to use zip code if you want to and I've done some minor facebook. Facebook ads and you can spend twenty bucks and get in front of at least a certain amount of people that fit what you're looking for. So right and then you know that part works but another way that you could do obviously, if you're doing a podcast recorded put on Youtube and then do the youtube marketing that way the tidal, the thumbnail, the keywords, all that stuff goes. You might record in jammed I come February I never even thought about all of a sudden getting hits from Youtube, which is also searching right and then another way that I found that what has been working great for me is the instinct Instagram Hashtag marketing. Corden Gore. Did. You take your regular pitcher or part of your. Video interview or your recording video part of it like a minute or two or whatever, and then you put it on Instagram, and then you can use up to thirty twenty, eight to thirty different. Hashtag. That will go into for example, in this case, simple podcast cloud. PODCAST, we can say Hey Hashtag entrepreneur hashtag small business hashtag. Love podcasting things our nation with the happens is when you do A. Day For example, NONOC law use it posted, and then some people will go to those particular Hashtag only and look for it and then from dear you build a following people will go check out your instagram profile and then go through a start following you and then when you put something there and then from there, you can direct them to your podcast mls we going on absolutely hashtag marking definitely, Hey, that'll that good one and then the other. Thing is just bigger guests that have You know followings if they if you cross promote I that'll that'll kind of kind of get you there as well. So but but you know you're not going to get to millions and I and I think that's one of the biggest thing to remember is The numbers are going to get there as quick as you want them to. They're just not and that's okay. That's I think that's the misperception with. Like when somebody sees look Oh my God guys who who's so successful I want to be just like them that they don't understand the last ten plus years of the hard work that he did no one talks about the stuff and then all of a sudden after ten years he's overnight success Jordan for example, and then you know wearing the brother wants to become a podcast or But. Just doing for the wrong reason because they just WanNa make. Quick box and this that and the other people like me. We actually want to help people with our valuable information, the service and things in nature and That's what it is but also we are patient we don't give up like after not five episode is not working in those that I'm like I'm in this foot long long haul and I will do this for the next five, six plus ear. That's just me because I'll lock this and I the emails the feedback that I get back from the people who listened to mature like, wow, this is really So, I'm in for the long run and speaking of in for the long run. What tips that you can give somebody who is starting out the scene result? What can you advise them? Say continue on the light is at the end of the tunnel well, and I think there are many many resources out there you can google. A lot of times in life and in business, there's maybe one or two tweaks you can make. So for instance, the the Hashtag in I'm not really big on Instagram at all I probably should. I probably spend twenty or thirty minutes a week just on what you just said at. Hey, if that gets more downloads in and helps with some more snowballing, then that's a great thing. So I think. As an entrepreneur and podcasting is very entrepreneurial. You just always have to be looking for ways to improve because you don't drift. To the to the top and unless you're a famous person with a famous. You know their famous people I can start a podcast tomorrow and get hundreds of thousands of listens another name will you're not that person and I'm not that person on fortunately so we have to kind of grind our way there, and then we have to figure out what's you know what's the goal and I think there are people have podcast and they don't WanNa. Make money. It's just a topic they like talking about and that's eight. If almost nobody listened that you're getting your word out to a few, that's great and then you know if you're looking to grow your brand, you just have to know like what is a reasonable rate that you can that you can expect and it's not as big as you think it is probably. Definitely not it's always a quality while equality and then you know if for me personally I used to be when I first started podcasting speaking on analytics and things of that nature. Hey, I want to know how many listens how many downloads people are listening to it and things nature, and then a few months into him like that particular number became less important as compared to the people who were actually emailing me or messaging me like I. Love this thing. So what analytic do you follow that like on getting that number? I'm good in that analytic part. You know I mean probably shouldn't look at the total listens, but that's that's what I look at because I, don't and I use anchor as as the host and that's what. I mean a lot of people say anchors a great start, and then maybe move on from that when you get more advanced I, don't know enough to know if that's the right advice or not. But you look at it and it tells you how many how many listens you have but I do have you know there are people in countries I've never heard of so those may be bought they may not even be real people there may be just you know artificial intelligence so you know But when when you do for me, I'm not looking for millions of downloads I'm looking for you know hey, that that that person that I'm trying to convert to be a client. So when they say yeah, I heard that podcast. That's pretty cool when I email them the podcast. Then naturally the thing for me. Another thing that I'm doing that that that's I'm in a small town and I'm about to start advertising radio once a day during the stock report. So it's going to be hey, this is David check. Out Jones is up by twenty points that's is down, and then we'll talk about one or two stocks that are local to the area. So like Duke Energy. And then I'll have another thirty seconds or saying oh by the way checkout weekly wealth podcast dot com and sign up for our newsletter and we also we're going to be coming out with like five part mini video course. So that'll be a way if I literally got five people a month that good people to get on my list that's another great way to get it out. So again, this is for someone not looking. At least listen to this is for someone who's looking to get a one client a month or every two months that our good clients yet. If you get those five people listen to you out of the five, you get one client who actually has good financial stability to spend money you. Then that's all that matters like so you really need actually saw all those millions of downloads people listen to it like, okay whatever. But. At the end of the guess if you look at your point of view of your your business point of view hey, I'm investing X. amount of dollars. What is our why it's? So let's say if you're investing two hundred dollars with the hosting with equipment your time and uploading editing and things of that nature or let's say two hundred dollars per month, and then at the end of the month you get. Three hundred back. Laissez five, hundred, altogether. Two hundred gone three, hundred I think that would be good. Are What Chessel so In my business you know, and we all have to know what our purposes in my business is wrong as your client I'm getting revenue from you so. If your client for ten years I'm getting revenue every quarter for ten years. So the lifetime value of a client is potentially huge. So that's why again I I don't I don't I don't know that I'll ever do any any sponsorships or anything because for me that might cloud the message a little bit. So my I think but I think everybody you need to know the goal of your podcast and for me, the goal is credibility and ultimately if it helps a few people person over the edge to become a client, then then it's done what it's supposed to do. I. Think the way I look at sponsorships are like advertisement when you're watching TV let's say you washing your favorite TV and all of a sit in you're like Oh my God this is so cool. He comes away part and. Here, comes a thirty second AD. I was like Oh, my God, I was so into about to go and. Pay Goes thirty second. So you know depending on how it's done. If you're natural eight, for example, we're talking we're talking and I'll say, Hey, by the way, my name is Mall Pure and Improv finder all simple podcast cloud that easy transition becomes a lot easier than you know completely different way have to slap in your arm like piloting and what do I ask you is like How or rather what advice would you give somebody who wants to create the Intros and outdoors interest being in the beginning when art was being also? At resources has, can you share where people can go and create these actors and inches? So I went on fiber and I just put in podcast intro music and you get a hundred different different options I spent fifty or seventy, five dollars and I wanted a female voice just because I wanted just kind of a contrast. Just just. To were almost. Like somebody's introducing me. So there was someone and I listen to a couple of her samples and then she you engage her services and then she sent you a link to her her site where she's paid royalties and there's thousands and thousands of songs, and you find the songs and then you you sent her what you want her to say. And she sends you You know a twenty second recording, and then you say, well, can you make this word a little bit more emphasized or not, and you know in a day or two so that that was pretty simple and it it didn't cost a whole lot of money but I you know to me I, think the intro music needs to be. Strong or catchy or get your attention and in some in some way. So mine is electric guitars and I think. Music so I assume interviews of where can people go check out your podcasts So the. Weekly Wealth podcast we're all the major platforms we're on You know apple podcasts spotify, but you can also go to www dot weekly wealth podcast, Dot Com, we upload them all there and it's just a pretty cool site and talks a little bit about me and my firm and everything else. All, right. Cool. So Last question probably, not Alaska she went towards the end anyway. So if you were to give. Twenty five for twenty five year old version of yourself. Young version advice. Wow. Nor right now to get to where you are lot faster, what advice would I be? I think the best advice is that everything you do takes you either towards or away from your goals. So there is no such thing as an overnight success when you see that athlete and you say, Wow, this guy came out of nowhere in one no, no that guy dedicated everything. From childhood on and parents spent money on lessons and everything else. You just don't know about it and. So everything we do on a daily basis we need to be focused on the goal. So Darren? Hardy. wrote the the compound effect and basically said everything you do is either working for you or against you. So if you WANNA lose weight most of us know generally what to do right and if you eat one triple cheeseburger, you're not going to gain twenty pounds rob. But if you do that four times a week over the course of the year, you will and it's just that bad habit. Compounded and it's the same thing in business or or podcast or anything else If you're if you're spending ten twenty minutes a day thinking who could be my next guest or one thing I started doing is before I released my podcast, I, listen to it in my car on the way home to see what it sounds like in a car because most podcasts are listened to in a car right and the last one for example, there is a portion that I forgot to edit out so they were. There was one time where I said the same sentence twice in a row. So thankfully, I, didn't edited I didn't release it. So then I just had to edit the next day, but it sounded pretty good but there are a few times where Mikey I can't release this episode I need to. Redo. It because and I need to get some help with sound quality and everything. So but I think those little things you know nobody becomes a champion from. Become a champion from what you see. So when Michael Jordan hits at big shot, you think well Michael Jordan. No but you don't know what he did before that and how many thousands of hours because everybody has talent, but it's the it's those who work hard and smart to get the most of their talent are the ones who become become champions at business at podcasting sports at life. So Data super solid advice thin and if if people listening today if he's a got that advice alone, go further than anything else. So part of that question would be what is in store for you for the next two years that you're so passionate about working on. So. My next project is putting together a five part. Mini video series. So if you listen to the weekly podcast and then the call to action is Please go to the weekly wealth podcast and sign up for our five part. Mini. Video series where it's going to be the five biggest financial mistakes that you might be making now. So it'll all be automated and there's you know there's some obstacles with that just as far as getting it done. But if you got A, you know a five to ten minute video from me for five straight days said you felt are valuable that would certainly build kind of our relationship and make you more likely to engage me as your financial planner when when or if. You have that need. So that's the next thing is building the list you know with good quality content and then I can can can just drip and stay in front of you. You know you may not think unique financial planner now, but you may inherit ten million dollars. You may win the lottery you may not so that I, want to stay in front of you until the time comes and then you're like, yeah, only one option and it's that guy that I listened to every week. Yes. Definitely I. Think all the less can definitely you some kind of a financial help or Adviser and obviously you can talk today with A. Check out his website, which is a weekly wealth podcast, dot com or check that out and then also. Last cushioned when asked You I know we spend so much time on this amazing podcast. I know when people listen to were like, wow, this is so cool. Shares ton a ton of secrets and tapes and things nature. So if you could share to tips or to advices I guess you can call it. Somebody who only started a podcast they already did the basic stuff whatever, and now they WANNA take next war with diamond or how can you do that you? I, think you either need to learn how to add it very well or pay someone to end it for you. because. I do think that. Like I start cutting a snippet of. Of of the conversation and putting it before the intro music a little preview. There's not like a tremendous amount of skill on that but at least in the beginning, you don't know how to do that. So I think getting having the best quality editing that you can have whether it's you or paying someone I. Think is very, very important and then I think your equipment and your sound quality needs to be as good as it possibly can be and you don't necessarily even spend that much money equipment is so good in so. Cheap. But you know you have to be in a room that's quiet. You have to invest in some soundproofing but not not millions of dollars You know you can't have background noise and and you know if you need to get rid of your kids for a little while and not have them around the which have to do. So I think sound quality. It's kind of like when they're when there's fingerprints on a on a class nobody really. You don't notice it cleaned glass, but you notice the glass with the fingerprints on it. People don't notice perfect sound quality, but they noticed when it's not perfect. So kinda needs to be as close to perfect as you can get it but that is one solid wise day. Thank you so much taking the time from your busy schedule for being here talking to me and also the simple podcast team truly appreciate that we know we wish you much success and last thing you WanNa do with yours, just give you the floor you can share whatever you want with your is hope listen to it right now the floor is yours. Wow. So I have an open floor say whatever I want. That's a little bit scary. So Just, like I said about about podcasting everything you do is going take you towards your way from your same thing is with money same thing with relationships and all the things that are important to you. So money's a toll money's not good money's not bad money's just a tool. So if many of our daily decisions that are financial related are taking us are purposely taking us towards our goal will make tremendous progress what What. Walt. Disney's brothers said was when your values are clear, your decisions are easy. So if you have a strong cold to get to certain place financially and there's a strong reason for that that maybe you just naturally don't waste money and you naturally don't spend nine dollars on value meal or you naturally don't do these things because you have a big in this big enough why so look at your y and build your build all of your decisions around that and and we'll all move in their direction. Awesome. Thank you so much.

Bonus: Money horror stories II

"Hey everyone it's so awhile ago. We did an episode of this is uncomfortable around your money secrets. It's and mistakes. You know all the things that are still haunting you and even though we're on break we wanted to share a few more stories with y'all before. Were officially back early next year. Love Bonus episode. All right here it is earlier this year. Hate an alternate twenty-three-year-old. College student from Idaho started taking this sleeping pill really powerful one. It felt like I was on laughing guest to to a sort which I'm a mormon so I've never ever been high before but I imagine this is what it feels like. For years he had trouble sleeping would get max for hours each night and this hill hill felt like a godsend. He could finally get a full night's sleep. There is just one tiny drawback sometimes when he takes it he he sleep walks and it's not just like roaming around his room when he talks about it. He refers to his nighttime self as subconscious Hayden. So I've I've noticed that subconscious Hayden usually thinks that things on his mind are very important when Hayden takes the sleeping pill he does things he has no recollection of of like. He sends his friends. These nonsensical tax little rhymes and words. He thinks are funny but luckily he says he does not send them any deep dark secrets. sub-conscious Hayden really is not addict conscious. Hated so not only does he know what things we WANNA keep secret but sub-conscious Hayden also likes to buy things for conscious hater in the past year since he started getting a good night's sleep fleet subconscious hidden has bought a week eight in a nice sweater plaque socks a huge bag of airheads and five pound bag of jelly beans just to name a few things. He's he loves to surprise me. He's like the best boyfriend. You can buy love it because subconscious Hayden is all into self care like he wants to. Hr you're treated well exactly. He's like look. I understand that your sleep has been terrible all your life so here take a gift. So how much do you think subconscious has spent on you. Oh I don't like to think about that. Subconscious hated manages the books. Yeah it's probably probably at least a few hundred this year and it's mostly been a bunch of small trivial all stuff that is until earlier this summer so for a little context Hayden. Has this bucket list for himself. It's full of absurd. Funny things he wants to do in life. I know you probably can't put this on the podcast but easy call it like a You know use the F. Word you can use that okay. I probably shouldn't probably gonNA listen to podcasts. So we'll just call it the edit list so it's all of these. It's really funny. Things that I think are at least I think they're funny. And one of those has always been to get a billboard of myself with with no context and just put my face on it so I don't know why funny yeah exactly then. One evening he was on his bad doing his homework. When this email pops up got notification that said your billboard is life and said my billboard is what no and I I went to the confirmation link and I had ordered a Billboard in Louisville Kentucky? We do you have any connection to Louisville people. I didn't know what the price was going to be. I didn't know what the billboard was and it was kind of that moment room like did sub-conscious Hayden finally become a Dick so a billboard depending on the location can cost thousands of dollars a month Haden was panicking. What if he had just completely really wiped out his bank account he looks more closely at that confirmation email and it turns out he bought a billboard just for a day at digital one? That alternates with other are ads. So it was relatively cheap. A hundred bucks seeing that it was only a hundred dollars was kind of like who. Okay thank goodness okay. So now he it just has to find out what the hell is on that billboard. He can't find any trace of it on his computer. There's No mock-up or photoshop shop file. So he goes to the company's website so donald them is for the website and it's just a bunch of clouds with my face on it. My face cut out terribly by the way and then there was a little tiny airplane pulling a banner ad on the banner said Hashtag and chronic fatigue. Tomorrow tomorrow. Why heads which is interesting because any call to action you've ever heard like let's do something about this today but mine is like let's end chronic fatigue in tomorrow? Let's figure it out later. We need to see this image right now actually. Okay Oh my God yeah. It's pretty much how he described it. It looks like a middle school kid slap together using Microsoft paint. The backdrop is a real life. Blue Sky with clouds and in the left corner is his disembodied head floating amidst them and underneath Hashtag and and chronic fatigue. Tomorrow you have kind of like I'm looking into your soul kind of look on your like I understand you. Hayden says subconscious hidden will make these surprise purchases about twice a month. Does it worry you at all the now now why it probably should probably by just know that condensates still a part of me in Hayden. He you know that sleeping pills can have serious side effects. There have been warnings from the FDA about people on sleeping pills doing dangerous things like sleep driving or getting injured sleepwalking blocking. He says he hasn't consulted his doctor about it but he has told his parents and they also aren't too worried Hayden says the real tipping point would be be if he wakes up one day and sees that subconscious Hayden has spent beyond their means and he can't return it but again he doesn't see that happening. I know that he knows all my anxieties about money. And you know he knows that I have these accruing student loans and so I think he's more of Not as much of a prankster. But more of a gift giver to me. He's got your back. Yeah he did not turn out to be a Dick. Yes exactly at least not yet. You'll be the first Chris person coming up after the break from unexpected. It costs to being in a relationship so a lot of the stories we heard from from y'all whereabout purchases that came back to bite you for Karla Veras. It's started back in two thousand fourteen in her hometown of we Hawkin New Jersey. She was at a stop stop light and when she looked over to the car next to her she'd noticed this cute guy the essential like tall dark and handsome laying wavy black hair. They're perfectly Paul. maded Nice dark beard. You know big Brown eyes. He was driving. Nice cars and so- Carla in that moment feeling especially bold rolled down her window and made her move so I looked over and I was like I feel like you look familiar like like maybe we should exchange numbers. We exchanged numbers exchange numbers through the car at the light and they ended up dating soon after her. This guy who will call Omar was a bit older. He was in his thirties. Ancarlo at the time was in her early twenties and things got serious pretty fast about a year and a half into dating. They made a big financial decision. o'meara wanted to get a new car but had bad credit. So he asked Carla If she could help by putting the car loan and insurance under her name I was blindsided by the question and I was like I don't really. I don't really know how this makes sense like for me to to put it in my name. Carla had just graduated college and Omar told her it helped her build credit. Plus he'd be the one making all the payments on a five year plan. And and that's what sold Carla. This plan implied they'd be together for the long haul. It could be a real milestone and the relationship. You like the idea that commitment definitely MM-HMM SO CARLA AKU sign the paperwork for a great twenty twelve BMW all-wheel-drive the nicest nicest car she'd ever seen detected when you were out of your lanes it stop you when you were going. Forward like the head Sonar of the sun roof it had add runflat tires. It was a spacious each month. Omar made a six hundred dollar payment. It wasn't long after the car. Purchase though that things between them got a little shaky they'd fight ally and it just felt like they weren't on the same page. The real tipping point was when Omar decided that he wanted to move to Florida which Carla. It definitely didn't want so after three years of dating. They split up when it was officially over. Like did he think about the a car at all. And what would happen with that you know. He's like I still need my car. There's nothing that you really need to worry about in were you worried I would worry. o'meara was still making the payments. But the car was tied to her name and her insurance then about six six months. After the break-up o'meara calls her he's like we have a problem. The car won't start so he takes to the shop and shortly after Carla gets a call from the mechanic and the mechanic explains to her that the exterior of the car are looks completely one hundred percent normal but the insides are totally fried. And that's when he tells her are they saw an entry of lightning and an exit of lightning. Those a bullshit like what. The fuck are the chances that this would ever happen like you leave and now the car gets lady yeah. It's a nightmare literally nightmare. This bolt of lightning a complete freak accident had totaled the car and it fell on Carla to sort everything out the insurance. This company paid her a large sum of money. But even after that Carla and Omar still owed ten grand on the car loan when she told Omar about it. He said he'd call her back but instead the blocked me on his phone. He blocked me on facebook facebook chat. He Walked Lincoln. He blocked blackmail. What's up all of a sudden that ten thousand dollars? It became her problem so incredibly embarrassed that I tried tried not to say anything to anyone in our. have no idea what the fuck I'm GONNA do. Carla ended up taking out a personal loan to cover the cost and for the last two years. She's been paying off that loan. She's had to cut back on expenses and lived with her parents longer than she expected. The show make her last payment this month and is just ready to move on. If it's ten grand that have to pay for this Mojo never to be part of my life again. That's a price that I'm willing to pay. It's kind of sad. That Carla thinks about ten grand as something. She had to pay order to close this chapter in her life because there are the costs you expect any relationship that trips you go on together or the things you buy but this one feels pretty shitty. She agreed read to help someone she loved and she got screwed over do do you forgive him. I do are you do and I wish him I wish him all the luck in the world because if Karma has anything to say about it he's GonNa need it now to close out our show. We have a story from someone on our team. Our producer Meghan Dmitri so we actually have to go back in time to nineteen ninety-six when Meghan was just a moody preteen in a small all town in Wisconsin. I had a lot of opinions on all of my teachers as a big gossip and like every thirteen year. Old kind of an asshole fry was angsty so so angsty she was entering a skater face and set her sights on this grunge Rock Kid Mike and the great below. Hello I remember him most days wearing a kind of burgundy flannel and some ill-fitting jeans. When they started dating Meghan was convinced he was the Gavin? Ross Ross failed to her Gwen Stefani. Plus it was perfect because Mike had a twin brother who is dating Megan's best friend it was your classic seventh seven th grade relationship. I don't think we went on any dates I think the entirety of our relationship was just holding hands for ten minutes on a bus for like two months and it was a great two months until he moved away. That's sad I was possibly heartbroken. I don't know oh I think your life was ruined for four two. That's Megan's MOM Jan.. You girls were just like Oh this is so terrible what are we gonNA do. They decided to stay in touch the only way they could back then with phone calls and really intense deep thirteen year old conversations in island. I think tell him about any new skateboarding tricks. I had learned. It was all going really well. Then one day Megan's mom Jan got home from work I. We went and got the mail from the mailbox. And I I was in my kitchen just opening the mail and having jingle waters something and that's when she saw the phone bill all of a sudden I opened it up and it it was like four hundred dollars four hundred dollars on the bill all these long distance charges to Rockford L. Annoy where Megan's boo now lived and it wasn't just like the occasional. Catch up call sometimes as many as eleven or twelve times a day she she cooked eleven or twelve about well. Here's the deal. I that's what I asked her. I said my God. Megan how could you call this boy and talk twelve times a date. Oh he wasn't home home. I just talked to his mom looking you talking to his mom. I'm very friendly. They can laugh about it now but it was not so cute at the time. I was angry very very angry because I was pretty frugal and saw. It was much of a shock to have a form. Bill Kinda killed the budget for that month. Meghan promised to pay it all back. She took a babysitting Gig did extra chores and handed over her birthday money. But here's the kicker so we're calm down you know she's agreed she's GonNa pay everything back and then she said something like you might not WanNa look at next month's phone bill because it's going to be the same because she'd been calling for two months straight. So was there another four hundred dollar bill. Oh yes I do on the world did I ever payback eight hundred dollars. Didn't we'd forgave. You didn't feel bad thinking back on the story now. Of course that's so much money and yet that eight hundred dollars probably not even worth it. I think how many any time you actually talk to him. and not his mom maybe five times. But in retrospect Jenkins see the upside. I figured occurred. This was probably a good life experience for you because You you would realize that you know you can have instant gratification. But sometimes there are consequences. This is all that and the consequences might be a little painful in the wallet. It really did have some significant consequences for the family. Megan's parents had use their savings to pay the bill on time. Sorry about that mom. That's okay that's all right. All right well. I hope y'all enjoy this. Little bonus. Episode will be officially back early next year. In the meantime and bear with me here. I'm about to get a little public radio on you but We've got a marketplace end of the year fundraiser. Going on right now and you know because we're a nonprofit. We rely on donations to keep the lights on so even a five dollar donations helpful and it makes you an official marketplace investor investor even comes with a fund sticker every bit helps and you can find details if you want to donate at marketplace dot org slash donate.

Help this week from Eliza Mills and Nancy for Golly it's attorney is the executive director of on demand and Deborah Clark is the Senior Vice President and general manager of marketplace and our theme music is by Wunderle. Alright catchall later in the other day. I got a package from China which I have no clue when I ordered this one and it was one of those stupid little ice scrapers those circular ones that you see on facebook or whatever those one of those presents whereas like did you really think I wanted. Yeah you bought this last minute.

America's Mando in the peace after the battle weeks have passed. We realize that maybe Yoda is happy here. Kristie he's so happy. It's heartwarming although he gets shamed into and not eating a frog frog shaming. Him is not acceptable though. All talk about this. It does lead to UH realizing how he's learning. He's he's again he's fifty Karas Manda. What happens if you take his helmet off? He says you can never put it on again. This is the way she tells tells him basically that he is insane for not just taking it off and settling down with the hot widow. Who wants Tomago? I don't get it you can't put it on again. What is there like a break? This is like a safety seal like on tylenol food that it's likely they're little battle the wrong people's attention maybe it's time to move on.

Mando says goodbye to Cara Window. Mara's daughter Hugs L. B. Y.. Both looks so stricken ah thanks Mando. And he and the child depart on that turn up card just like Ross can I like. I don't understand this. He parked his ship like a day. Away this was one of the more confounding things in the episode is when pill boy here and tell them that it's going to be on took them a day together get they're gonna it's GonNa take him that long to travel back then man of sets out you have to know in the back of your mind that this might not work you might have to flee. You need to be closer to your transport than that. What do you do it? Should I just fly my ship there. What is the day at okay? Why don't we get there in five minutes? I I just don't understand it. Maybe there's nowhere to land the ship in the area because because of the pond crowd but the is able to roam around. I'd like you know what I think is a good idea. I'd like to not know for at least a day if my ship is stolen or that it's going to have to flee from bounty hunters pursuing us for a day before I can get back there. Chris Bando what are you doing bill. The Jason Yeah we want you to stay good the communities grateful. They should be he can back all this away case. There's ever trouble your podcast can have a good life Binge Mokaba child for awhile. Wouldn't that nice and that gets us to this episode's big idea sort search our feelings and use the force. The defining theme of this episode is community chapter four directed by Bryce Dallas Howard written by Jon Favreau was called sanctuary and that title cuts to the core of this episode the series today and indeed much of what we know about Mando himself so far the episode finds. It's hard in a contradiction. Galaxy may be far far away but when trouble is always close by refuge can feel on attainable. Just when you think you've found Safe Harbor Arbor back in the crosshairs again. Never again police realizing that there may be no such thing. As Sanctuary makes the idea and ideal of community community and comfort in a world often built on depriving them all the more meaningful all the more desirable to pursue and we opened underwater. But not in a way suffocates tickets in a way that makes us think of life. Impossibility music is gentle and hopeful. The colors are bright and vibrant the auditory visual passer. Unlike what we've seen in the mandatory and so far are we are on Sorgun the planets which Mando and baby ODA will soon fly and when we pan up above the water surface. We see that the people harvesting the Krill are villagers o'meara on her daughter Uinta among them children chase frogs they kick balls. They're being kids. It almost feels as though we might be in another flashback slash back before war or the echo of exchange the rhythms of life. But we're calling into the present with thuds and groans. Villagers are two they scream and run and shout. They're back it's instantly clear. This is a routine occurrence for the villagers a literal an existential threat against their community. And it's a harrowing sequence. It really early is blast or fire from at this point and unseen source that we will quickly come to learn is not S. T. pelting through the grass in the pond. Water the class. Union raiders pilfering offering village Krill. Stores mayor and her daughter went to needing to take shelter beneath the fishing basket. The represents their way of life just in layer of wicker that serving. They're only shield between life work detection which could mean death. That delicate harmony of existence in this place upset not by surprise his but even more upsettingly by inevitability after the title Card Burn early that Bubblegum bump MHM above baby. Oh cuts Amando and we'll meet a YO approaching razor crest crests. Having fled their pursuers at the end of chapter three we. Why is back? This'll tunic as little sack soaked. He's all SACRAL TUNIC. There seems to be a little bit. The on duty wanted to flip it up. It's like a not quite a turtleneck but there's a lot there's ample material around the nets comfort. It's like you just basically take doc neck role. Take a pillow case. He cut a couple of holes in the bottom supergirl. Looks great so little hemline will potato sack for our little Patino you know. And he's just playing with an engaging with every little thing that lights up on the dashboard of the razor crest throughout the episode after arriving on Sorghum. We'll see how the delights of being amongst others transports little baby. Yoda sparking curiosity informing his behavior tree. All sorts of new coups new chirps new gestures like a whole. He's really blossoming. Almost it's sad to think. Think about what. He's probably concert in knows how long he was kept perched on the razor crest shelby press a button after button looking Longley guiltily delete man does he does. He's again. He's fifty like a cat watching from the counter knocking over the remote to get your attention specifically because you said not to it is too much very reminiscent of when I look over at Halo in the morning and I say just a few minutes and he picks up my alarm clock with his teeth. It drops it so that I have no choice but to wake up unbelievable stuff from both halo an elbow. Y He likes his ears will flop down increasingly creasing. My favorite part by the way I mean the is obviously a marvel his little nose his forehead crinkle is lip quiver but so much of his expression comes from his ears concur. Yeah well. It's incredible he wants to be a kid he wants to learn and grow and play. Manno is growing as well. We lost count of our laments in the. The show's opening weeks about Mando not picking up. BB Yoda holding him showing him some kind of affection but here he does yes after after. I'll be wise slamming on muzzle. Buttons Manno picks them up. Let's see he says Sorghum. Looks like there's no store. Port no industrial centres know population density real backwater Scud Whole Watch. Watch it buddy. Which means is perfect for us you ready to lay low and structured little tiny legs? Couple months you will walk Brat Precious. Now he's GonNa find this here. Her plan is desirable specifically. Because it's off the map off the path a map and a path that we're gleaning. A hunter must have have must be aware of in order to find its prey in the mysterious death sex tracking fobs once again. Play a key role in this episode which we'll get to more later on the allegation here is clear. Mando who uses the FOBS for his work as about enter or used to at least knows how they function and he also knows that. All all of the bounty hunters back on the client's planet half fobs out on baby ODA yet. He believes that a backwater skull can provide the shelter that they need which indicates it's the only works. If you know where to go to activate it. He tells me be Yoda. He's GonNa Scout it out. Make sure all safe for them. Don't touch anything he says. I'll find some some lodging for you. What are you talking about right here? You say don't move you understand. Great One of the highlights of the episode comes seconds later when the hatch there is request opens and we see baby ODA is standing right next to mando queuing looking up at him. Expectantly the ready to walk out with him. Just say Darling Darling boy and this is more than just a cute moment. It's a reminder that baby odor chose Mando just as we'll just mando chose his they wanna be together for Baby Oda as we saw on his face heard his cries last week. Mando handed him over to Dr pershing and the client real. We'll see if he doesn't come from just a location it comes from who is with specifically from being with Manda with his new family. His new community baby odes now without basket waddles behind Mando quite capably and we must say a dorm lease are taking in the sights of this. The wonderful new planet he loves to explore. He's got a very active mind. You can see that they arrive at a cafe in town fool of new sights and smells els and sounds for Albie why we still don't know. Of course what is life like was before your family was he bred in lab. Was He hatched. We don't know if he's he's a clone did he have. Parents what would have been like. In either case was around others of his kind was he ran others at all. Did he have love and friendship. He drinks in the new surroundings. Like it's all new to him and it very well maybe yes again. He is fifty. I don't know how many times I say he's fifty my needs. Some baby beat a fifty year old very old baby his life so far even just the part of it we've seen has been filled with uncertainty and peril. He wants to form attachments and make new discoveries and indeed he has formed an attachment. He chirps with joy as he gazes at the SUNBEAM's on beams on the floor then jumps back and fear from the loft cat more on them in the eight. We waddles too close to purchase on his highchair with excited contentment. Ready to take in the day when Mando reaches down and picks them up and put them on the chair. It's like God these it's cute also like if you're trying to keep a low. Oh profile Larry him into town if you come walking into town but if you come walking into town with one's GonNa look ever with an eight inch tall baby mixed. I don't know how twitter works on Sorghum but I know that will be able to us and trending picture torch. Can I take a picture of your son. Imagine Holding Court just taking selfie after Selfie with the admirers crushing shing it. The cuteness does not end there boone broth for the little one needs it. Manda says rolling boy. Possibly the most heartwarming moment. Coming from Manda that we've seen so far that is sweet. It is very notable to me that the last episode. He's like basically prepared hard to sell the baby and all of a sudden like kind of the overprotective dad across a few minutes. We know phone brought for little little. He's got quite a diet here. He saved baby yoga and helped him escape. The enemies cultures okay and now now now the real work begins. You got him out now you keep them alive you nurture him you care for you. Raise him that all comes next. And with all all of the daily realities that that entails. He's looking out for baby owed as feeding amies nurturing him. And it is really heartening and wonderful to see. But it's not just menu scanning he's got to keep an out always rats and he spies carradine clearly fierce clearly watchful across the restaurant and asked the waitress with some bribe. Money is that it incentive for for the dirt and she is all too happy to oblige happy to. Who's WHO's the tough-looking one with the battle armor Mando? Oh pursues Cara when he sees that she slipped away flip a coin to the waitress and telling her to keep an eye on the kid but still alarmingly. We have to note here leaving bb Yoda alone alone in a room full of strangers any of whom could be wishing him ill any of whom could be reporting his whereabouts. Any of whom could be bounty hunters themselves. You don't know I don't know Mando. Maybe Yoda is not the razor cross. You can't just leave him unattended. You don't know this broth offering waitress. You don't know that you can trust her. I was horrified horrified by this. I was distressed as we've as we've talked about over the course of the mando episodes is the man. No good is an open question. He's great in a fight. His heart is in the right place. He has a lot to learn. That's my official stance as of now it busy moment here. Though that reminds us specifically of the thing that they are missing sing other people they can trust the peace of mind that comes from knowing others. Have Your back now in chapter three. Obviously the other man delorean Orion warriors provided that for Mando and baby. Yoda but remember. It was a surprise when they did that. It wasn't the expectation the expectation is that they would remain underground for for their protection as is their way and as a result of them doing so of rising to the occasion and coming to his aid they had to abandon their couvert and seek to build a new life new new sanctuary of their own elsewhere and we and presumably Mando right. Now that we're not sure don't know where that is Mando and B. B. O.. To have each other but they don't have anyone else right now in when the scene that follows we get a good look at some of the man does built in bells and whistles. This is cruel. He activates some of his gear. Is He's tracking Cara. We get a look at a vision sensor that has kind of Predator esque ability to read heat and latent heat and he's able to track her footprints due to prior movements and their care swings down from a perch kicks him in the chest and proceeds to. I don't know how else to put it. She really puts a beating on his ass. Like it's a tie. Officially Chief Fox him up I mean she's bare hand punching the best armor and is holding. He's so shook that he's like well. I guess I gotTa hit the flame thrower out. Yes he goes away which is absolutely come on man you wearing a full suit of armor. You're getting ask Allie and your flip brunch show us followed route. It's fucking alley. You're getting your ass kicked and various I guess of Barbecuer up come on Danu notice the flame thrower too often and too quickly off officially a tough look for somebody puts their paws on all these go straight to the flame thrower. It's ridiculous. No wonder he ran out of fuel last time he's out they fight to a draw again. Kind of a draw blast yep draw blasters on each other something else causes them to look over and what is it. What is it folks? It is one of the best moments in recorded human history. That's what it is. It is L. B. Y.. Yes Co XLII EULEX. Great in his burlap burlap robe shipping bone Broth Dean Delina Mug which he has clasped in his two little hands. A little clause curled into the side of the Mug. It's perfectly sipping. It's perfect and I have to think I don't know how cognizant they knew what they why is named culture they think. Yes you feel it I feel it too but like is it that blatant that. There's like bill meam this. You're you're making a show for two thousand nineteen first streaming service. You know what the Internet is. You know how it works and I think the fact that we are currently only this moment where we're in this like will the baby to Merch be ready for the holidays period because they waited to start making the march because they were so intent hint on keeping baby oh to secret really really speaks to the fact that they knew they had something incredibly special and remarkable on their hands. And how could they not with Werner Herzog dog walking around Saturday. Call talking about how heartbreaking beautiful it is really amazing there is a stat that got shared on social media over the weekend. That like baby has more has more social media engagements and like them. All the Democratic candidates asks the access being a father sent me the baby. Iota is legitimately a star. I was listening to the country. podcast who weekly this weekend and and they did this whole thing about whether baby Yoda is who were they with. So basically can a-list celebrities and he's he's arrived this moment. He is an Alastair the defining figure in this moment in time. It's unbelievable anyway. They look over and that site light of little baby. Yoda standing there and all his ten to eleven inches of glory. Sign the peace treaty with one -absolutely the Cow. Can you do violence violence in the presence of such an angel wants some soup men who ask God and with that. They repaired back to the cafe. Time for a notch and back inside. Cara cheers for story with Mandela's Abo just sits there and observes taking it in. She is rebel shock trooper new term in Star Wars Canon. We have met obviously many different types of troopers but never this exact one exciting so most my action bopping up after indoor she says mostly mostly ex imperial warlords they wanted to fast and quiet. They said this dropped ships. No support us on the politics started. We re peacekeepers protecting delegates suppressing riots. Not what I signed up for. How'd you end up here? He asks. Let's just call it an early retirement. She Sips Rosin and says didn't look. I knew you or guilt. I figured you had on me. That's why I came at you so hard. Okay so Keira we can. Deduce is a desert right. She has not been honorably discharged from the rebel of larvae. She is on the run and whether her former rebel bosses or someone else's actual unit. That has the FOB on her. We're not sure. But she's seeking a place to Lilo and people are always on the lookout for those who are in pursuit. She amando have this in common. She did him guild because of his outfit but remember he broke the guild old code as Jason Outline last week in the temple. And he's on the run from his fellow bounty hunters and worse. Now and community often sprints up in this fashion from finding organically common ground with other people. They have something else in common. Besides just being on the run new. Don't believe in the New Republic and this is fascinating has really really interesting. Remember Mando's tone of derision when Matt Carga suggested going back to the quarter report the client if Mandawa so upset about it mando doesn't believe in the establishment or at least not this establishment and Karen. Meanwhile may have a rebel vallance at two hundred cheek but she has become disenchanted as well and while we are all or rightly focused Abia and have been for the bulk of the shows. Run one one of the most important things that the show is trying to achieve is quietly this exploring how soon on the heels of rebel victory evil crept in again. How how is the new order rise so quickly this clarity? We need particularly in Canon with the essential heir to the Empire Trilogy Now de Canonized just in that question was one of the central draws four John Fabra when he set out to create the sears in the first place he's talked about this and this year Star Wars celebration for example he said quote it was really really compelling to me what happened after the celebration of the Empire falling the revolutionist successful and then what happens now. What we're getting to see that here in part of that central tension clearly is that when the good guys win and the bag icefall? You want to start your life with the people that you love and you try to build your community as best as you he possibly can but you still have to contend with the world that you're trying to build it well this has been a real treat cartels man no but unless you WanNa go another round. One of his is GONNA math to move on and I was here. I incredible and just like that Mando tells Opie y well looks like this planet is taken. He may no longer live by the guild code but he lives just by his cody's respecting cares. Dibs dominance in this case justice. He would want her to respect his if the situation were reversed so back to do the as always absolutely unsecured razor singly revolt. Only there's company there are Pill Boy Aka Eugene. Cordeiro is the crow farmers stoke someone told Jason that the latest bad place simulation has really gotten out of hand. Really got there with his Comrade Cayman. And they're seeking. That knows help. Having seen his ship fly Lionel presumably having heard of a car clad mandatory and walking through town ordering soup with a little baby remember with the armor said that armor will draw the eye and the reputation will follow quote. I've read a lot about your tribe if half of what I've read is true. And they want Mando Nando of course to help them. Fight off the raiders stealing their crow and upsetting their way of life. This is a community in need. Our whole village Shipton says became. They came together to fight a common enemy in attempts to find a common eight Mendoza. Need do though. The payment isn't enough to tempt him. The mention of their quote middle of nowhere location is they have lodging and they have the remote location that will presumably keep baby. Yoda off out grids. And thus mandar uses the villagers discredits to recruit Cara Round two. He says she's dubious at first. So we're basically running off abandoned raiders for lunch money but the location is draw for her to last I checked. That's a pretty square ordeal for someone in your position. Mando says he's decent recruiter. Actually he also shows that he's adept at motivating his fellows. I can't imagine there's anything hiding in these trees that the X. Shock Trooper couldn't handle. He says kind of pushing her buttons here. He wouldn't back down from a challenge like that park top part motivation. He can already tell the Charissa kind of person who won't either it and then in a truly wonderful moment. He Leans back to relax knowing that he's got carol locked and look up at the sky from the cart that the writing in and be aby YODA mimics his behavior rallying in concert with him dead and cooling as eyes wide. He looks up into the starry sky. In general all of that possibility wonderful little evocative moment but then I'm really glad made it into this episode. That was honestly a special moment. It really was he's learning. There's so much out there to see there so much to explore when they arrive at the village in the morning light. God this is so precious he hoda. Is this fucking starlet court. Hold on AH little claws group in the little side of the cart looking out at all of these new people all these new things and the children run to him in absolute delight and who can blame them who can blame them. What an amazing day to be like a child actor onset so jealous big production? You're in the star. Wars Universe is so exciting and then they drive drive up with the little baby. Yoda puppet clutching the side of a cart. Unbelievable and you just all you gotta do. Bryce Dallas just turn the cameras on and get the natural the reaction to the kids. You got it right here just unbelievable. They're smitten remarking constantly about how cutie is and he is overjoyed to it reaches out with his tiny arms cooing with Glee giggling. We got a lot of new descriptors in his subtitling this week. Not just yeah. We got some babbling we got some giggling etc.. It is reasonable to think that he has never been around this many people for sure at least not well intentioned the people so not as many friends at least as many other people beings who are looking to celebrate his life to nuzzle him to care for him rather than do him harm arm he seems immediately buoyed by the prospect of such fellowship. Mando is moving his stuff into the hut which will become his lodgings and he meets America and they immediately creates heat gets hot boy in the armor we back in the armor armor for Jerry folks. Turn up the thing because there's some there's some wanting there's some desire happening immediately best car may be able to withstand a glancing blow from lightsaber. But how about from the inside the forest source of Mandela's lightsaber force of his pink Sabre Tan Sabre against against the cod piece of the best car. God I I guess that area is technically Kinda just like cloth but still good bit. She's prepared this space firm and honestly it looks. Great Does Appear One holiday display. She's wonderful lengths for them. And ask you gotta get those clean and it absolutely enchanting ending little crib for the circuit and other markings of Home Mandalay Charley. Yeah it's a stray in euros around in gunslinger gunslinger defensive mode. When o'meara's child winter shows up she kind of sneaks into the doorway and sensing her presence he spins around with his gun? almo sounded despite the fact that again having left all but unattended another reminder that this isn't just new for Baby Yoda man does not used to living in community leader. His affection for the mandatory and families has been clear from chapter one but later the covert was not like this clearly as positives living like grads commentary last week revealed and how much of that is just him wanting to honor the culture over any kind of actual warmth that he may or may not feel for the man laurine children and the life in this Krill village. This village smells yes. They're living amongst the shrimp pits. Certain parts tough the water you would think has extension also. They appear to be doing laundry in the same one. Just because I think that's not good where also bathroom facilities alum clear about. What is that another trench? That's like further back. Like what are we doing. That's how they fertilize the KRILL bonds. I don't know I say I think you know it's very much an open air existence assistance. Nice you've the fresh air you know you have the aromatics coming in from the forest every week about your own home. You know things take a turn maybe on a given afternoon Sunisa light a candle light a match blaster fire from the ATS T- providing some cover plus the brewing of the SPA. Who knows what kind of uh-huh kind of lovely sense that cast into the air? I don't know I think it seems like a lovely place still S. The village is absolutely beautiful as you described collegial but but they don't just welcome. Outsiders here we don't get a lot of visitors here. o'mara says she's not used to strangers when Amarah returns she has food Fernando and Baby Abiola fresh veggies looks right off the sweet Green Line Mando. You're a fool more your immediate hand on the Moron dummy. Maybe you can picture of a more honest. You're already why is there something else you're looking for. What else are you looking for? He doesn't think he deserves it. Man Tough winter asks if she can feed baby Yoda and then. She does so by hand him. Nibbling the little Broccoli lifestock so sweet. Imagine being this kid and getting to do this all the other child actors other child actors were like. I can't believe that she's fucking fight him. They all get to play with him in the circle with the krill hopping is very precious. It's just amazing. She asks here if she can play with maybe Oda and he coups the light as Mando. Scoops them up from the crib. Any then shuffles after winter epidemic is noted earlier nervous. Dad Man really freaks when they make to go outside which is actually really refreshing. Because we see that he's paying attention we see again. The nature of how deep is attachment is already but also it is a little incongruous with his prior are actions still speaks to his natural inclination to mistrust. People have to earn that from him. And these are these these are strangers to him just as he is to them and what's more he knows of course that this village is under threat. That's why he came in the first place a threat they could strike at any moment. Still parents parents gotta let the kids go to the mall at some point slash stranger things every hour until you come home the comm link. Yeah and Mando Relent on staying in the barn with America. Fuck each other. And also get a bit Morris the children play. She's observant highly observant noting that he didn't eat in front of other people all bringing him a meal to consume private realizing that he must not remove his helmet in the president's hungry. She's not shy. She asked him about. This outright. Has Been since you've taken that off yesterday. The incredible moment simultaneously huge reveal of the show and also just mando being like so so literal. It's also very. It's kind of hard to square with some of his past comments to the armor and particular about. When is your helmet? I've been off so this is a evolution and our understanding of how this works. I mean in front of someone else. She says okay there we go. He points hoisted kids playing outside with the ODA at the center and he says I wasn't much older than they are. o'meara is rightly incredulous. You haven't shown your face to anyone cade need. She'll so sad it's a sad thing no he says. I was happy that they took me in. My parents were killed in the mandatory and took care of me the supreme big mando and Manda Laurean bio download here certainly by the standards of the first few episodes while this does not confirm that he was not born a man delorean because the other mandatory and certainly could have adopted him even if he had been amend Lori and by birth. It does sound like that. It sounds like he was born raised elsewhere and then rescued by the try. Presumably mm-hmm ably as soon as the next shot in his flashback. When someone or something has to save him from the B. Two battle droid that was pointing the barrel of the gun at him down in that dwelling welling and that certainly hints at perhaps in even worse calamity than we have been suspecting? I mean if the man delorean's would feel the need to replenish the tribe by finding orphans and indoctrinating them into the culture. I mean that speaks to perhaps a real very low numbers numbers in there. Yes and that would align with some of what we have heard so far you know not only Mando's affection for the found Lang's could just be you a product of his personal histories foundling. You know in the empathy that he feels for people who are in his situation that he's already been in but things like armor saying you know. The families are the future picture and the way that they set aside resources for them. Really reinforce that idea. I'm sorry tells him here. This is the way here applies the Mandala race and and that means that he is a member of their community. Even that community doesn't resemble others that we might be used to and feels very strange at times. It's the one that he knows. It's the one to which crucially he feels that debt. And when Omar leaves him in Private Mando removes his helmet to eat. We don't see him. That reveals meals obviously still coming. I'm GonNa say episode six now. Okay I feel it's definitely come in and so is Mando on the race across tonight thinking thinking about o'mara somehow the numerous children who were just a stone's throw from the open window don't see him either say they'd like I can't take my helmet off in front of other people. Let me just do it in front of an open window. Elusive station of the rule. which ultimately bodes well for how quickly we might see him again? Huge reveal that he does in fact delightful cheese played by the way Alex good grains wonderful charcuterie acts farm-to-table action. Oh it's all Zabel here. Sort menu and Cara Goto scout the Clinton attending league gather Intel before landing on a battle. They notice some concerning signs. Something quite large pure suv damaged the trees and Oh there is a big footprint. The size of a small droid driven cart. Ats Speakers Imperial Walker. Mando ads what is it doing here. One indeed this is a part of the post war landscape landscape. That fabric was interested in exploring we wondered in discussing Dr Pershing in the client in dissuading. The appearance of Mauve Gideon how exactly the imperial remnants function but what about about the factions. Outside of those are the class. UNIAN raiders mourn them in the eight elite with an imperial remnant. Because they're using Piontek or did they scavenge it or all sorts of weapons available on the market to those who would bid or steel to win it. Certainly you would imagine. If whole armies just kind of evaporated people would look to make a living any way they could includes selling arms S- terrifying about I don't know Kera says but this is more than I signed up for bad news. Mando sess fucking. Oh Ooh when we cut to the next scene back with the villagers you can't live here anymore nice. Bedside manner care says speaking for the audiences while they're doing man it does defense you build bedside manner when you coexist with other people and a wild that bedside manner is determined the star wars where we're wasting while the doctoring great point great boy thank you know again most of these droids over most of these the she's talking to the Krill harvest. Detroit I was fascinated was wonderful delight. They'll mando abides by the way and shows real gratitude for the care that that community gave him the armor-clad Warriors. We say this with respect back for their tenderness they would say. Thank you probably if you said that. Yes that's true you're right plus ez-pass said last week they've been living underground like Sandra's only going above one by one. Those are not conditions that breed comportment was social nor the characters at a shot instead the changes the game by the way Y'all left out of your jamming. That's that's an absolutely fair point. You guys left that out like what tip recruiters come on. Let's can we. Let's just put everything on the table. You can't be like some raiders. Oh they have a tank ridiculous. Gillis come on bill boy come on you want bortles. Walking into a situation like that. The KRILL villagers have harsher Sir joints that we just talked about cart driving Mex- visual signifies to us that these are not primitive people. They know what technology is they know what they're facing and they still didn't say and while Kara generally had a great episode a couple of the low points from her occur here in the sequence including dismissing the villagers. Horror her over the orders to relocate when o'mara says do they have nowhere to go charissa. Sure do this is a big planet. I mean I've seen a a lot smaller tough. Look for our girl doing here. My grandparents seated these pods. Cayden says it took generations Replies she says I need it really Lee but like there are only two of us when they disagree setting their own numbers in their own ranks. She says I mean fighters be realistic now on the one hand this meeks yes sets from cars perspective. She's ex-military she's been imbalanced up close. She knows what they take. She knows what they cost. I've seen that thing. TAKEOUT entire hire companies a soldier. She says guys must sought to be hundred percent fair but mentioned that he oughta go. They must've saw August. The hawks come down with shreeves but despite her battle title Atkinson She's failing to account for one key variable here the spirit of the community the desire among its members to fight for their home and each other no matter what media some of them will be injured. Maybe some of them will be killed. But what kind of life would he be living if they abandoned their home in their work and each other without trying to see it return row afterwards from our sponsors and star wars presented by state farm. You know those days when it feels like problems just pop out of nowhere. Yeah like Krill. Stealing Raider saw helpful folks farm know all about mountain lake a fender bender.

Pardon now backbench mode. We're not leaving Amarah says with all the fortitude of a warrior which indeed we will find out soon enough she is you cannot fight that thing care says once more less we show them how Mando says one over by their courage of that moment remember why he was drawn baby yoga and committed to protecting them from eleven in the first place. He was a founding. He knows what it's like to lose your family to have to leave. Your home needs to rely on others protecting guy I June. He wants to support o'meara and the villagers impulse to fight for the life that they've built with each other he knows it's a precious thing and easy to lose. Commence with Oregon's two moons in the Sky Training Montage that is an overt. Oh Mosh to one of star. Wars foundational influences occur so in this case the nineteen fifty four Japanese Apennines Epoch Seven Samurai which focuses on villages of farmers who hire seven Ronin to fight off crop stealing bandits sound familiar in addition to spawning countless odes elsewhere in culture from the magnificent seven to wolves of the college. The three Amigos to a bug's life beyond seven Sharon was also the influence for the clone. Wars episode. Bounty owners seemed to seventeen to wash this the day before this absolutely so weird Anikin. Ob One in a soak it temporarily team up with four bounty bounty hunters to protect the farmers from Honda's pirates can Hongo that guy the galaxies a much more spicy place when he's around but he causes way too much trouble. Does that episode opened with a title card dedicated to Akira. Kurosawa and criticize the hidden fortress is one of the seminal influences on George George Lucas in the original Star Wars Seven Samurai bounty hunters and sanctuary all share something in common the old teach a man to fish ideal. The community wants saving living but everyone involved knows alternately. The savings only sustainable of those who form the community take part in protecting. That's right the training montage and ensuing events. They're also a testament to the strength in numbers Mando and bounty hunters in general so often represent life alone acting unilaterally acting as a rogue. But that's stay in. It's lonely precarious unpredictable. The true victory here doesn't come from actually beating backs of fo it comes comes from choosing to stand tall on the shoulder by shoulder with your fellows in the face of those odds and the plan is this Mando and Keira will draw out. Vets Moroney TST Shirley. Take that out of commission while the villagers trained by them. Fight off the bandits it's a coordinated attack and defense dance and that's key because the effort is exactly the kind that hinges on chemistry and Communication Ninety four to ninety two four hundred strangers. This quickly the villagers they do it they have it mando and Cara have their trust and their passion and it is ultimately enough why the villagers confusing never previously built barricades. We can't say come on. It's reasonable ask people. What are we doing? It's reasonable to ask. How will mayora era knows how to shoot so we hope to find out? She's awesome that that's a thread that you feel like has been left dangling on deliberately yes lot of questions here. But ultimately they come together and victory when we return Mando says before he and Cara sat out for the class twins were coming in hot and then he turns to the villagers and says when we and by the way later on. We'll be ready in these. Like unbelievable sexual chemistry is for your given. Even though you can't see his face it really is I ship it. I ship it to. I mean. Listen it's all there for you. What do you want Mando God Mandolin? Kara fall into a quick rhythm with each other as they invade the Clinton camp like they're old hands in the trenches they're clearly professional warriors and that mutual respect and ensured language helps them establish fast rapport both following their initial tiff and out in the field. Here when later asks care was that the plan after the improvised advised effort to draw the ATS. T- that extra step and toss a grenade into it's red eye slot when doesn't initially go far enough speech. The shorthand that they've developed with each other the nods and shouts Attila Person. You're in sync with what you intend to do. Next and over a very short period of time they may not have fought together side by side than civil war but their comrades here you're handing over his precious pulse rifle for her to use only hesitating like half again. Let's say a BP. Which I do weird if you did we the and really did it? That's a precious. But he did handed over. And I gotTa Give Him His props credible carrot trusting in man does discover all the while the children sheltered inside L. B. Y. Nestled in their arm cute. It's another reminder that we don't yet know whether it'll be white can tall upon the force it will enter reminder. That Mando still doesn't know what the child did in chapter two or whether he could do it again. He's not deployed in battle but kept sequestered in safer reminded reminder that he is the thing that Mando is trying to protect and that though the villagers don't all know his history they're trying to protect to because he's so cute so precious gum drop in the wake of the battle the rhythms of everyday life setback in quickly. This is what they were all fighting to protect after all. This is what it's all about baby. Odor chases a frog and justice. He did on our vol. Seven in chapter two but this time when he slurps it up the watching children's this new community shrieking Harlan. Are there revolted now. It is not nice to frog shame. Don't shame in let him you let me what do you want a little stinky breath. Amaechi his breath. It's it's hard any pet owners familiar with that but he's eating live frog. Your animal licks its own ass. You learn to deal. But he's but he's sent he brushes teeth. He's fifty he already sip from his own cup and says we. It is a little semi while. It's not nice for them to make him feel bad. It is amazing to see him. Drop the frog out of his mouth reads their response. What's yes in response to them? He is receiving all sorts of new feedback from his environment and he is a dabbing based on what he observes and Lawrence we have have a lot to glean still about his nature. But we're seeing in moments like this. How his nurturing is influencing his behaviors remarkable mando sadly is not adapting quite as quickly that we get the sense that he would like to if he could and that was I think one of the best parts of this? Thanks so does that you could sense what was amandas heart. Even if he couldn't bring himself to say it in the wake of o'meara observing how happy Abo to scenes and how fully he fits in here. Cara calls out Mando hang around. Mando Mando needs absolutely needs to happen. He needs someone who's just going to be like. What is he doing on on his bullshit? This rigid ways. So what happens if you take that thing off. She says they come after you and kill you basically implying that will be the only logical defense for you acting the way you are he says no you just can't ever put about. How are they gonNA know? Can I just ask how are they gonNA know how are they. That's a reasonable the point I guess the answer to that is twofold one as we see people keep finding each other so information travels where travel fast with his helmet. Come on the best Garman Andros the I two more importantly I think it's just that he has given this pledge and he takes it seriously probably too seriously seriously to a fault so this right here from him is a big. This is the way info download on the heels of what we learned last week and even earlier in this episode if you remove helmet in the company of others you violate the code violate the way and in essence you forfeit your right to participate in that culture anymore again as we said last week this is clearly a new practice because it was not the case in Star Award Troubles Norwitzki any previous Canon. The predated that Mando said earlier that he's worn the helmet and observe the way since he was kid and again based on all all the evidence that we have we think we think that he was a kid during the clone. Wars looking at be to battle droid his relative age etc etc.. So perhaps assertion. A timeline confusion issue here. If the don't take off the helmet way sprung up back then clone wars when he was a kid and rebels characters are routinely taking off their helmets elder that period of time so being has her helmet off all the time. John Gosh off the hair. I mean fabulous fabulous hair. Perhaps the way just started small. And maybe it's spread. Perhaps it specific to this tribe following the great purge. We're getting answers here but we still have more questions for Mando. The armor is not not just reflection of the way of life. He's chosen the community. He's sworn to honor. It's a reflection of the emotional armor that he carries with him visits him from forming attachments. He's clearly committed to me. Why having sacrificed his guilt standing already in order to protect him but he's not quite able to bring himself to let go of the way and find a new way with these villagers even though all of his comments speak to how touched by the kindness on display and the piece? Yes Oh maybe onus found just moved by it. That's that's it care says. See You can slip off the helmet and settle down with that beautiful young widow and raise your kids sitting here sipping spa. And he's like I mean. I guess that does a sound good. Silence is his answer and she frowns at shrugs as she sips her drink. It's not her call. Obviously but she doesn't understand his choice. Mando is is thinking about. What's next week's if past learned US worried that the battle will have drawn attention to their presence here word travels I indeed? We might want to cycle the charts and move on. I wouldn't want to be the one who's got to tell him. She says we see. I'll be one frolicking with the children chasing little krill. Flopping guys stop playing with your either harvest the Krill. We're leaving in the fucking pond. Don't pull it out and throw it on the ground and live flooded tortured to death. Honestly if you're going to do that just let the clock to Indians stop it. Respect the KRILL. No problem when you eat krill but don't torture it by dragging Out Angry also don't flame thrower your mind horns we have a lot of notes so far. Don't slave for a random human. The you follow that of a bar. Because you're getting you're asking a fair fight man. Amanda I'm leaving here. Mando says we can cure his heartache out loud. It's a come on your first of all. No you're not stop it. It hurts them. Oh it hurts us. Her traveling with me some lifer kid mando doesn't expound on what's changed or why. He now thinks he's become more of a threat to L B Y a protector but he seems to think that this community is the home. That won't maybe you'll need and not the home. That Mando is certainly ready for thinks he deserves and did my job. He safe better chance life but life is something to share with people that you love and Mando. Is that for a little baby. It's going to break his little heart care. Says he'll get over it. We all okay dad fucking hard ass God. He thought that was a sad line was sad but like news feed on experience. It's about his loss and pain. It's like everybody here likes you. Just hang around. He's speaking of his own experience. Certainly having lost his family learn to adapt but Mando clearly guided by his heart beneath the gruff exterior. Isn't exactly a model in this now is not minister. Rosemary is quite is under and Marley. Really ranking it's very nice here he says I think it's clear he's happy and he's speaking of baby yoga but also heavily projecting NAMARA are knows it. What about you she says? Are you happy here. We want you to stay the communities. Grateful you can pack all this away in case there's trouble you and your boy could have a good life. You could be a child for awhile. Wouldn't that be nice when he's fifty by the way you told her that he's over enough to listen to us. Fuck all night. He's finished. He's Vase Shit. Believe me she obviously is speaking with the audiences voice here and it is really nice to hear Mando thanks to as painful. NFL's this from it. Would he says there's there's real emotion voice acting right Pedro Pasco this moment. You can feel it coming through even with the filter. That's on West. You could feel it that right. There is the Red Viper that we know and love and have been waiting to see more of your. I hope we get more of a moving forward in. She reaches with her hands and with ours to try to remove his helmet and second issues. Like she's going to any stops her. I don't belong here but he does. And that moment that exchange really really cuts to the push poll behind that idea of community wanting it even yearning for it but also not thinking or allowing yourself to think that you can really have it and the episodes mix of peace and war longing and motion quintessentially star wars the end but approached by focusing on this kind of slice of life at the film's just by definition. Don't have the time to slow down and explore and it is really important to see for us and Fernando and for Quail and o'mara on. Bb owed on camera on all the other characters that we've met so far in this journey who despite their different different paths and different motivations and their emphasis in the present are united by this by the desire to find peace and belonging. I will look after him as one of my own mare will. She's the Best I get A. I don't even want to put this kind of evil on this podcast but so is not going to die. I'm not going to happen. I believe that I wanted to just say mandatory and not GonNa die. I will never never recover. Voted I will. I think at recover. I think whatever plans I think. They know they understand that. They can't can't do it this way. It ain't didn't understand before they understand it now. In her hopefully reediting the end of season. We have to because I will burn the Disney offices so that said I do think I worried like I feel like we're gonna see O'meara again and someone's gotTa die this. You know what I mean like I know I hate it because I start thinking like this. Oh my God. I think he might be Rhino. which bad isn't it? It's all I know he's GonNa be tried to live that life and then she'll die. You Know God awful damn I know I feel terrible about it. Yeah it's terrible anyway. I'm really observer right now. It just feels like they're teeing up. It feels like a real postulates. Yeah take this line the big hole. I'd be at here now grief. Listen I'll say goodbye degree I I will kiss him on. Both cheeks. Both best guard blocks by by Fresno whisper into his ear. 'cause you're carga anyway Protective Mirror at all costs we cut next to a cross. Your view from the FOB carrying bounty hunters rifle and the less we have to think about mel Y in about enters crosses the better my heart rate just like goes up stomach stomach clench never do this again parish this image and the thought so oh all however we have to talk about for a second. Yes how these fobs work. I think it's important. This is important information at this point. And Ben Limerick brought it up in his great piece. He's about We don't know how these things operate. It's time why was it. That Mando thought that they'd be safe here. Clearly he knows I know something about how they operate and there must be a range to them the fact that he did in that they were for quite a while for weeks. Indicates that a FOB care needs to know the planet in in question or at least a general area on a planet in order to get the FOB in rain activated this also drives with what we learn Fernando and the client in chapter one when discussing manner could could find the asset. They know he's here. Cara says yes. Then they'll keep coming. Yes if laying. Low is key mando aired by helping the villagers and drawing attention even of doing doing so is right. There's a real dilemma. Her can you act as is in your nature and your occupation if your safety. LBJ safety rely on inaction baby. You can't stay here now because they know he and Mando or on sorghum meanings organism bust the fact that he thinks it's worth trying to go somewhere else indicates that again there's way to avoid the fobs at least for some time until your location surfaces I g eleven indicated that his responded to signs of life organic matter. The Fasel will continue to prove key. That much is clear and hopefully soon. We'll learn exactly how they work. And how to combat them. I think you know it's like the best car reminds me of the elder one in that wave of like it draws uh-huh action and conflict to the wearer bloodied ages. They can't help me do that. People see you and they go rent. Either I'm going to challenge him or I'm going to ask him for help in a challenge that I'm having right he's going to have to take it off hopefully in bed with zero for now. It's time to go baby ODA purchase on the edge of his cart art. It has heart melting looking out at the friends newfound family this community. He's leaving behind in. Its first on good. It's for his protection action but that doesn't make it hurt any last for us or for him Karen Mando say their farewells for now and the children are despondent wailing ailing winter hugging as he lets out this little squeak. I'm GonNa Miss You so much. She says thinks Mando and he walks away from a life that he knows he can't have but clearly wishes that he could if things were different if maybe he he were different for now. It's onward. BB ODA standing in his cart upper lip quivering as they pull away from the only community. We've ever seen him no wrenching. If this is let me just say this if this is the series a kind of adventure of the week. I'll slotted into like some overarching plot structure throughout the season. I love it. Signed me up for a Menteng season that said in thirty thirty to thirty eight minutes. I think you got to have like eighteen episodes a season at some point. Yeah the fact that we're halfway through already is is kind of difficult to fathom. Actually I hope season two is really soon. I really hope so to sound like. You're not that busy. I will say I'm very eager for the show. So the way for the happy we know who you are but nothing nine even hot desert. Jean McGregor is enough to in any way distract me from wanting endless sapio my screen green Jason. Yeah last I checked Binge Motta's pretty square deal for somebody in your position. Worst case scenario you tune up your blaster best-case best-case your deterrent. So please gathered the paddle and learn head to the sample. Teach US everything we need to know about the ATS T. One of the imperial walkers manufactured by Galactic lactic industrial giant drive yards. We've talked about them in the past the imperial all terrain Scout Transport. The tea also known. derisively Um Chicken Walker is a two legged rapid response. Armored Assault Vehicle Empire often deployed them as outriders gauging defenses with hit and run tactics so the enemy couldn't focus fire on the main force which is usually in the form of the advocates for defenders. Like the rebels on Hof facing an armored formation mation of at at screened by. ATS's offers nothing but bad choices if you fire the mobile ats. You've just given away your position allowing the ads. Two zero zero in for the kill shot. If you focus on the ads you allow the SIROM unchecked. Picking off soldiers and light vehicles the secret to using the S. T. correctly directly to provide them with support either in the form of ad adults air support or infantry support without proper support working in tandem with the Scott Walker the vehicle as we saw in sanctuary actuary is extremely vulnerable now. ZAC Cram would like to play devil's advocate by saying that on indoor the were supported by ground troops but they were indeed vulnerable. I would counter by saying the empire used them extremely stupidly on indoor by having them chase alone after he walks which I get it. They looked like easy pickings. You just have them like run after he walks but unsupported by infantry and then all of a sudden you he walks turn out to be pretty good at taking down. ATS's and now you look dumb especially when motivated by their fake. God is this is honestly trouble. We'll get to that in return a war crime. It's nothing short of work. I'm not joking right. It's an break up on charges. I WanNa talk about it. Truth and reconciliation finally walks assauge about firepower our the ATS tea comes with two Chin mounted laser cannons with an effective range of just over a mile this is the main weapon used for engaging gun emplacements and entrenched entrenched enemy positions for up close encounters with infantry or perhaps he walks or vine swinging rookie the size of the head feature a grenade launcher now light anti personnel personnel blaster cannon. The head can turn two hundred forty degrees allowing the co-pilot target guns with precision. The scouts armor is robust enough to turn back small small-arms hand-held bastards and grenades long as they go off outside the vehicle but light enough to allow for speed and maneuverability heavier weapons however cannons missiles concern attorney chicken Walker into barbecue chicken long delicious heavier. Anything really let us not forget. Caribou that he walks doubt. ATS using two huge logs suspended by ropes. Your work you got. You don't have trees on Jordan. No they're on this planet Hurt the Walker's legs. Oh Yeah I thought you did mop up operations. After Indoor read the report fucking hamsters took those things down this symbol contraption generate enough kinetic energy to pancake in ats cockpit so the trick is always to keep moving. If piling one of these things get in amongst the foot soldiers. unders cut them up. And don't let the big guns fix and look out for redwood logs movements generated by those two motorized chicken legs which despite the somewhat gangly appearance the vehicle and Action Lau. ATS to operate in a variety of environments the all terrain in at Cram noted to me and my document. We've seen scouts and scout variance in heavy snow on Hof in thick forest. On Endurance Oregon in treacherous swamps membrane and in crowded city streets Jetta city take out the legs however in the platform is useless. Camera while laying out. Her plan tells Mandolin the villagers that nothing on this planet could damage legs on this thing and I don't WanNa talk about it anymore. The fucking you oxted the walks did it puts a respect on the US. Can we respect them. We lured them into a devastating war are and now. We don't even talk about their achievements their contributions and other frankly baffling weakness of the ATS. Tea is the pilot hatch. It's located at the top of the craft said other than the height of the cockpit off the ground and assemble locking mechanism. The hatch lacks any defensive measures that sheikh mounted laser. Cannon isn't maneuverable enough to shoot an enemy fighter managed to get on top of Walker and if as happened on end or one of the pilots pop out that leaves the craft aft- Susceptible to being boarded the asset were inspired in part by an illustration depicting four legged cargo vehicles trudging through snow created by the industrial shrill designer concept artist and future syd mead for nineteen sixty-nine brochure for us. Steel inspired by the cybernetic walking machine or walking truck. A four legged prototype vehicle built by General Electric in nineteen sixty five could go five miles per hour and was apparently exhausting to drive. I need began his career in Nineteen fifty-nine with Ford Motor Company and would go on to contribute to the one thousand nine Hundred Ninety Eight Star Trek Movie Bladerunner Two thousand ten and most recently blade runner twenty forty nine and his book sentinel. Mead said of his futuristic walking vehicles in the US Still Scher quote the largest land animal now extent extent is the elephant as he puts his weight on each foot. We're `gendering of the elephant. Here as he as he puts quizzes. Wait on each foot. The metacarpals Tarsus fan out from the ankle and the foot spreads distributing the pressure conversely as the way it is retracted. The foot contracts never get stuck in the mud. The same principle was incorporated here the foot structure would be alternately inflated and deflated in the walking mode to duplicate the natural function of the elephant's foot in one thousand nine hundred seventy seven during pre production for empire strikes back. Joe Johnson who along with Ralph McKenzie is the artist responsible for the look of Star Wars was iterating rating the design for imperial tanks. He felt that a tread driven vehicle. Construction would be to earthly not high-tech seeming enough. So he hit on an idea for a two who legged vehicle. Which Lucas likes didn't hate? It didn't hit as luck would have it. Johnston chanced upon the Sydney illustrated brochure quote. It was a promotional brochure. Put put up by. US Steel Johnston says in the making of the empire strikes back and contained a whole slew of full color paintings indicating what steel will be used for in the future. That's where the initial walker idea came from. It wasn't a military vehicle. It was just a transportation thing but I thought it would make a great fighting vehicle if you took off the truck bed and put an arm and body and head on on it. George remembers it slightly differently quote. The walkers were inspired by the war of the worlds more than anything else where the Martians walked in. Machines like giant spiders. I was trying to come up with a way of making this battle. Different Chicken Walker is featured heavily in return the dry but it it appears briefly in empire strikes back the visible twice both times in the background in shot of the hooking a T. A. T. and another of Luke laying in the snow after slicing chassis of Ata tea with his lightsaber the. At Not S. T. was a very late edition. It was December nineteen. Seventy nine shooting was complete. Most of the special effects were completed and rector reverend. Kirshner was in Japan. Promoting the PHILP. The model shop built a prototype miniature chicken Walker based on Joe Johnson and special effects artist. John Berg's design. Johnston showed it to Lucas. George again again did not hate it until Johnson than if the animators could build opposable model in time he would work. The movie finished special effects of Never Stop George George before now for stop motion animation was used in a new hope in the chew. We are two Chechen on the Falcons and the technique was integral to empire strikes. Back it was used in scenes involving imperial -at's tontons. The process is arduous. Stop motion models had to be realistically detailed and articulated enable to hold the pose which which the animators place them in slight movements to the camera. Model background lights could ruin a shot quote. John broke it all down and figured it out Phil Tippett says in making yeah of empire strikes. Back Tippett led alums Animation Department for the film along with John Berg quote. It was a minor miracle of engineering. Joe worked very closely with John in developing a functional prototype for how this thing would actually move because the functional stop motion parts right on the surface and had to operate so the engineering that John had to put into this thing was quite complicated. Like Little Cams and Pistons that would self animate as you move the legs along with some very odd couplings that Joe had designed the issue with stop motion however is that the action has a tendency to appear Tocado or strobe light or Jerky no matter how finally the models are positioned shot tippit co developed a technique called go motion which introduce blurring effects smoothie action and make. It seem as if it occurred more realistically in camera. The idea of using blurbs existed for decades some early methods for achieving this included smearing gasoline on the camera lens or gently flicking the model or moving the table while the camera Lenses Open Exposing the Frame Commotion Built On this moving the model technique but use computers to pose the miniature and move it very slightly during the exposure of the frame thus creating something that was more detailed wonderful chicken walkers chicken. Walk the mall. Yeah you know. We raise some nuggets here a few weeks back. It's too much action for a backwater tone like this too. Many nuggets were travels fast about these nuggets before we leave. Let's roll like bb eight through eight one of our favorite insights and observations from this episode. Lightning round saw uber. I own number one last week. Debra channel made history by becoming the first woman to direct live action star wars installment this week Bryce Dallas Howard doubled that number by directing chapter four marking. Obviously so you're saying out loud. The First Time Stars history that women have directed consecutive live action installments and Howard of course is not the first member of her family to direct correct in Star Wars. Her Father Ron Howard. Ever heard of them came into Helms. Loa Star were story after Lucasfilm boss. Kathleen Kennedy bumped bumped Phil Lord and Chris Miller from the project. You can hear US talk about that on our Solo pod like the rest of us. Bryce Dallas Howard is clearly infatuated with bb. Yoda AH tweeting an instagram rashes. About how her cat looks like I'll be Wi- as well as about how difficult it was to keep the baby iota. Spoilers Quiet Wyatt between working on her episode in the release of the show she had all these children. Young children can't keep their mouth shut what's the NBA for the kids. It's like listen please. Don't talk about how do you kids. I be impossible to keep them quiet. While bryce our clearly brought that cat adoration ratio to the way that she filmed l. b. y.. She also seemed to bring some Jurassic world experience to giving the eighty s in there. Menacing paw prints that real dinosaur energy but something else influenced her to loving star wars who among us right as she told fandom in an interview quote when when you're on that set and I hope that this is not incredibly Dorky for me to say but it's like everyone believes in the force that's not Dorky. That's wonderful I love it. Howard did not just grow up a star Wars Fan Ashir minded phantom in that same interview? She grew up around film sets on. Which George Lucas specifically worked as Lucas was the executive producer on it is a flex on willow which are father did? She also shadowed her dad on the solo set. Telling Phantom quote will my dad did solo honestly sleep. I was like hey you know that we're nepotism. I'm calling respect it respected. I knew respect. Earn it number two speaking of cats. The loss off cat made an appearance in this episode hissing poor. Lb y from under the slogan Cafe Table Style and speaking little buddy love cats hail from lawful an outer rim planet that serves his Home Base for the Spectres Aka the ghost team from Star Wars rebels. Nick the Loft Cat looks familiar. That's where you've seen it. The breed of TAT was a steady presence enemy former rebels including numerous notable sequences involving Ezra from a force training lesson that centered on trying to feel the living force through a lost cat to Ezra following aloft cat in a vision in order to attempt to learn about his parents lost wolves from lawful as well or also glories creatures guarding their planet through their connection to the force while off cat can show affection. If you earn it they're also hunters unafraid to use their claws and teeth in its ample large large mouth. attack anything from pro choice to imperial guards to law threats almost prominent mouth their number three from las rats bats. Rats amando settled on flying the razor crassus organ. He asked me a quote. You regularly low and stretch your legs for a couple months. You Little Brat Been He. He hasn't been around kids a lot and has had a tough upbringing. So he doesn't know yet. He loves the foundling calling them. The unconventional term of endearment is obviously familiar to all star wars fans though certainly not in that context in a new hope in response to hearing how challenging the death star target he would be Luke says quote. It's not impossible washable. I used to bull's eye want Branson Mitee sixteen back home. Don't they're not much bigger than two meters weird flex look but okay right associations with baby oh to end luke are more than enough to forever install womp rats in the star wars creature hall of fame. So what exactly are they. Well there were. ATS Gli Gray. Rodents native detachable which despite their this is not much bigger than two meters folks. Just Luke had many prominent features including large point heath three sharp claws for Pau long tails and ears and normally patches of black hair covering their spines kinda gross some rats wonderful womp rats Nutso acclimating to Tattoo desert climate they became menaces for the moisture farmers who have to deal with swamp brats assault on their garbage piles and the rats particularly enjoy. The vibes. Jackson Heights great place to hang and assemble this group the wop rats tenaciously attack residents fearless creatures. Though as Luke showed us the residents responding kind by hunting the want brats either for sport or pest control distressingly in the want bread is a cherished accessory of the Tuscan raiders who put wipe rap tusks on their outfits. They're very indeed. They're very respectful. Tactful of the natural habitat of their planet. Yeah and I like it. It's probably part of why Anikin slaughtered them number. Four and one of the Clue to Indians Aka the raiders who attacked Crow Farmers Species hails from Klatten in the Hutt space region of the Outer Rim Klatt to Indians viewed in return of the Jedi with one president in his palace Ellis and they make another notable appearance in clone wars. As the bounty Hunter Kostas takes part in the ultimately failed mission to attempt to assassinate me windu alongside angry child clone. Oh perfect the Clintons are Julia here but they deserve our pity like many other races and star wars. They were often enslaved primarily by the Hudson we learn from Luke and fate of the the Jed eye allies legends can help power over the species for more than twenty five thousand years lifetime. Twenty thousand deers longtime. Just a minute to baby Abo. But a longtime the class who in connection to the hut stems in part from their worship of deities called the ancients which some clad to Indians thought the huts to be due to their extended life spans many parts of life including the Trade Guild fell under hut control until an uprising challenge. Hut Rule Council of elders ruled the race pricing patients in age agent. Working to stamp out individualism. Some broke free of that restraint. However including two Jedi starred Dan ICAN and Tara does gone both? Kill the genius and some others from the rebel uprising. Finding inspiration in the individualistic spirit on display. If not the actual politics perhaps the band of Brigands we see her in chapter four with just such a bunch led astray by their lust for Krill. The power their ATS provided but chasing life on their own terms in their own fashion. It's one way of looking at it from a certain point of view. I guess never five how they ended up on. Sorgun is just one of many mysteries about this new planet introduced to the Cannon Right here in the middle or in chapter four. Look at that. We don't get a lot of visitors around here.

She commits fully helping to train the villagers attack the two Indians and leading the charge herself to take down the ATS saving the village. And if you want to quibble with the idea of an apparent deserter committing fully. That's within your rights. But what see the new republic earn some respect just before we judge thank you.

Rambo is neglected Vietnam vet unleashes his anger and anguish on bad offs with a very big gun. The chicken sandwich you want. It's over Johnny. It's over in parts to he travels to the jungles of Vietnam to free. American PRISONERS OF WAR. Do Part Three. He's on a one man mission to rescue a buddy from Soviet forces in Afghanistan over the course of the series Rambo is transformed from enraged that to a symbol of American global power. What is what what they what. Every other guy came over here spills. His guts gave everything he had. What's Brooklyn us? As much as we love from the ashes of Vietnam Hollywood presents the victim hero. The consequence of the defeat is a crisis of masculinity and there is a vast cultural offensive to reinvent the notion of the strong powerful warrior. And that this strong powerful warrior is in fact the moral winner of the war in this present crisis. Government is not the solution to our problem. Government is the problem it is time to. I think it's no accident of course that you've got Ronald Reagan in the White House that this period of time talking about the horrors of big states it's individuals against the state is one of the underlying narratives air. I think one of the most glorious lines. I think that the Reagan ever comes out with. I think you know. What are the most frightening words in the English language in most terrifying words? And I'm from the government and I'm here to help. I am from own whether it's rocky in Italian Tadic top gun. In German Medine my pillow to navy instead of Hollywood's reach is global and so is that of the American military. The budget of the Pentagon outstrips the total revenue of Amazon Walmart and Shell oil combined when these two `institutions Hollywood and the US military work together. Their cultural power is immeasurable. People talk about the symbolic power of film. That's true but behind. That film is about the power of money in fact Hollywood's money's behind all but one of the top one hundred highest grossing worldwide films of all time slot for a decade following world. War Two about half of Hollywood's more and espionage movies were produced with help and input from the American military. That proportion dropped after the Vietnam War but as new geopolitical events unfolded. The Department of Defense became more heavily involved again. Introducing movies toughest tune. The neighborhood was one of the toughest man in the planet is. That's what we're GONNA find out events like nine eleven and the Persian Gulf wars intensified. This dynamic if ever saw from the cinema was showing some ridiculous Rambo seven blowing stuff up and it was big muscles and destroying Iceland awesome. That's fine I can take a bit of nationalism and militarism with a pinch and it's you know but it's just a matic when those ideas go through the Hollywood machine the hidden direct behind the curtain involvement by the National Security State. So what you may ask in. The end is just a movie but Matthew Alford the CO author of National Security Cinema thinks that war and spy movies should be viewed as a serious political force. The entertainment industry is so important in reaching many more people than news media In terms of providing the mood music for American foreign policy in western domination. I think there is a moral issue here. About what the Department of Defense and CIA and FBI to in Hollywood to write film scripts and it's very antidemocratic. Very dangerous throughout history. Sudden leaders have recognized the power of cinema to manipulate the masses from Google. Did Joseph Stalin Hollywood's Eric Johnson? This is part three of myths onscreen Hollywood by ideas contributor. Mary O'Connor eight miles miles in the opening scene of Topgun and navy pilot codename. Maverick played of course by Tom. Cruise slices through the sky like a skater on ice. Suddenly he doesn't aerial flip. An upside down just feet from a Russian built make snaps a picture. The enemy pilot crews then gives him the finger and zips off the dogfight dogfight takes place over the Indian Ocean. We're not sure who the enemy is. But it doesn't matter. The focus is on the hero because so many of these films and TV shows and video games are about constructing a militarized Masculinity Tantrum early is the author of hearts and minds the US empires culture industry. He says that while the Vietnam War movies often depicted veterans. Coming home broken war. Maverick represents a brand new kind of military hero. A tough guy so to speak but also a very likable guy. A very sort of amicable guy that can get originally work of war done well at the same time. Being charming have a wonderful relationship to large usually a woman partner. A wife or girlfriend have a good time at the bar singing. You've lost love and feeling well seducing seemingly only one women not the bar right is that famous scene and topgun displays. Excuse me say. Hey we'll take care of this. You never close your eyes anymore when I kiss your hips ten. This film was a US Department of Defense. Hollywood collaboration co-production if you would all of the planes and the jets that you see in the film battleships that you see in the film that's actual US military property and there's even sort of air persons that are extras that play roles in the film so navy recruiter set up shop outside of the theaters. Which top gun was screened and following tops guns release? Recruitment reportedly increased five hundred percent. Topgun also had another surprising. Impact the military hardware used in. The film was so impressive that according to a navy liaison officer she received ten times more scripts from Hollywood producers. Then she'd received in the previous two years military enhanced. Movies had become an integral part of Hollywood again. Tom Sector believes the Vietnam. War changed the face of the war movie. He's the CO author of National Security Cinema. If you go back to the nineteen fifties and sixties the early Cold War period. Hollywood was churning out around twenty wall movies per year. Two hundred a decade the overwhelming majority of which were made with Pentagon support in the late sixties early seventies. This changed partly because of the Vietnam War but also because of the decline of the studio system and the rise of more independent filmmakers so Vietnam actually represents the decline in the classic heroic war movie and as a result the DOD had to start supporting products that were not strictly war films but still pro-military films. The most obvious example would be top gun because the dod database on Hollywood productions. They've supported actually says that top gun completed rehabilitation of the military's image which had been savaged by the Vietnam War. So top gun is an example of this new kind military movie. Hollywood understood that the American public was losing. Its appetite for war stories fact. The phrase of Vietnam Syndrome is beginning to creep into popular culture. That's why Tom secker believes movies. Featuring characters a drama or romantic comedy were more appealing than in combat itself. Top Gun by the way delivered becoming the highest grossing film of Nineteen Eighty six for the rest of the decade. There was just a smattering of war. Movies produced but war would make a comeback this time in real life. Good Morning. It's a busy morning at Fort Bragg where this morning and on through the night troops are preparing to leave for the Mideast there. They will join us. Forces sent to be already on the ground. Saudi Arabia in the meantime Iraqi troops are still positioned at the borders of Saudi Arabia Kuwait and Iraq. Tensions continue to August. The eight was there. I saw the wreckage. Soldiers come into the hospital with guns. They took the baby incubators incubators and left his children today on the call horrifying on October tenth of Nineteen. Ninety a fifteen year old girl from Kuwait known simply as now yet offered this tearful testimony before the Congressional Human Rights Caucus. She recounted the sadistic behavior of Iraqi soldiers. Who'd ripped babies from incubators at a Kuwaiti hospital and left them to die? It had all the drama of a Hollywood movie and just like a Hollywood movie. It wasn't true Niagara. Was the daughter of the Kuwaiti ambassador to the US Hill and Knowlton and American public. Relations firm was reportedly paid twelve million dollars to ask focus groups. What would it take for you? To support the war to drive Iraq out of Kuwait most people agreed unsurprisingly that an atrocity like babies pulled from incubators would do it and it did kids in incubators and they were thrown out of the incubators so the Kuwait could be systematically dismantled President George H W Bush ran with the fake news that launched America into Operation Desert Storm. We know something going on in Iraq. We do not know what. Let me just very briefly. Bring you up to date on what we do know reporting from Saudi Arabia and Washington. Tonight confirms that there has been usual. American era in wrong devastating a country for no reason at all several times throughout the evening police clashed with demonstrators air. One massive antiwar protests over months streets around the world pulsed with hundreds of thousands gathering from Greece to America India to Canada. Hollywood was divided some actors like Susan. Sarandon Matt Damon and Jessica Lang joined in saying the war would only increase human suffering and animosity towards America others like Harrison Ford and Steven Spielberg declared. They were behind president. Bush in Nineteen ninety-one just weeks before Operation Desert Storm began. I was sent on his Simon by the. Cbc My asked me to interview Vietnam vets. The idea being that the pending Gulf War was likely triggering. Ptsd symptoms like flashbacks insomnia and depression. So I phoned countless Vietnam veteran across the United States. But that's not what I found. Here is some of that tape from the program. I made almost thirty years ago. I started out in Detroit at a veterans watering hole. Downtown patrons call it little Saigon. It is dark a ghost like place filled with the stench and his kerosene heaters. Someone tells me the heaters provide a nostalgic ambience perfect for sitting around and telling war stories on the walls here are thousands of decades and poems and posters from those who fought both living and now dead. There are official prisoner of war bracelets strewn about on one wall barely noticeable are the boots of an American Gi who killed himself and Vietnam. Danny overstreet owns disbar. He's a vet and he's against the war. I think it's awesome pure at his bar. He's heard how Vietnam vets rationalized their support for the war. In the Gulf they use the language of the sports world. The United States right now is Korea. We tied Vietnam we lost. We don't win. This woman is GonNa make the playoffs so like you know. We're in big trouble. We have to win. Isn't what commit genocide? Because we can't afford to lose this so that means we're GONNA have to chill of the civilian population old wounds. Continue to fester actually the food. That's what you learn at a weekly group therapy session for Vietnam vets conducted by psychiatrist. Dr Joe Fernando. A combat veteran himself fourteen pro war middle aged men start filing into Dr Fernando's Cozy Living Room style office struggling with their pro war views. And that's why it takes just seconds for the anger to escalate in fact it starts as soon as Jovan. Ango asks one man why he's angry angry about what? What does bill has been following this war compulsively and he believed media reports that suggested. Saddam Hussein was planning a terrorist attack during the recent Super Bowl. So Bill Watch the game waiting for something to happen. His game scrape football game and all this rhetoric Hussein and was really hoping. We're GONNA blow up the stadium and it never happened. I mean I'm finding myself our schedule by myself. Stage set for the world the curtain open and nothing happened. I think that the American people are know what it's like you get. Twelve hundred pound fucking bombs dropped on. What would they understand trump? Let's around many of the others feel the same way but they shout bill down that desire to avenge the past is more understandable. When you learn that thirteen of the fourteen men here had enlisted to fight in Vietnam. Appoint Joe Beningo drives home. He reminds them. They had a choice then and they have a choice now to turn off the war to walk away but a man named Mike Challenges. Dr Vernon goes assertion. Why have you decided to be upset right now? Why have you all decided to go back into remember all these things? Why are you choosing? You got choices. I ain't got choices. Sure you do where you're choosing their choosing not to be louder louder louder the folly and madness of the Vietnam War revisits tonight. Mike shaking with ballistic anger gets up and moves towards Dr Vernon go. I think something terrible and violent will happen but thankfully I'm Ron died skied over back. That have been luminated. We're being right. Flack going off all over the guy now the fire and the founding for the first time be Araki's have informed that just cut the line Baghdad. Dead former vice president. Dan Quayle called operation. Desert Storm truly a just war. It was certainly award. The world had never encountered before a high tech virtual one general storman Norman. Schwarzkopf commanded the American troops who numbered over a quarter of a million Brown benchley. The first Gulf War including a forty two day aerial bombardment killed an uncleared number of Iraqis but estimates suggest Tibet upwards of three hundred thousand soldiers and civilians died while just several hundred. Americans were killed in the Gulf at least eighty of those. Us soldiers were wounded or killed by friendly fire sacrifice ourselves the lives of our confidence daily life battle. Each one of us is mysteriously relatively found. Fellow man well. Desert Storm was touted as a triumph of good over evil. Just a handful of war films made it into cinemas courage under fire with Denzel Washington. Meg Ryan was one of. Them's Washington. Plays a colonel demoted to desk duty after mistakenly killing several of his own men. Tom's tank was wasn't enemy tank. I gave the order. Fine got out me. Killed as funeral lies the to handle is what stands out in Hollywood films like this there are no Iraqi victims. Soro is saved for the victors. And they're suffering. Tanner Murli says what made the Gulf War different from any previous war was that journalists. Who are supposed to produce. The first draft of history weren't allowed to witness much suffering for the most part the US military provided the news content. A lesson it learned in Vietnam. There's this idea that. During the Vietnam War there was this footloose professional cadre of journalists that ran around Vietnam capturing all of these grotesque grizzly and horrifying images of burning down villages torturing people And also you sort of were being shown Soldiers actually crying and bleeding. And so the idea is that journalists were just to free to do their jobs during the Vietnam War and the idea is that sort of media coverage of the war instigated or incited some kind of public distaste for war which created the conditions of possibility for the antiwar movement. Which then in some way caused the end of the war because then once the home front was lost. The soldiers fighting abroad no longer had the morale to sustain their operations but all of this sort of rest upon a very simplistic causal explanation For the defeat in Vietnam but nonetheless what what starts happening that military brass third saying well we can never let journalists. Be that autonomous. Ever again and so by the time that the Gulf War of ninety one happens you've got journalists being embedded with military personnel. We'll just basically drip feed them content that they can repackage as new stories. You know with very little mediation or filtering so pretty effective strategy. You're listening to ideas on.

Cinematic displays of war and aggressive foreign policy became part of Hollywood's ongoing movie real when nine eleven and the Gulf wars entered twenty first century American geopolitics. This is the final part of a three part series midst on screen. Hollywood war produced by ideas contributor. Mary O'CONNELL the Ghost of Vietnam would shape how the military would later handle the first Gulf War. Some of these ideas are echoed in historian Wolfgang Shiva Bush's book the culture of Defeat on national trauma morning and recovery. He focuses on what happens to a nation. Psychologically when its military is defeated? He breaks down the impact into what he calls five months. In the case of Vietnam he tells us the first myth. Was that ABS scapegoating. Those communists needs to be stopped. That's why we have to go to war. Then comes the myth of betrayal. We were not allowed to win. It was the media. The politicians then the third myth the winner was unworthy of victory. Then comes the myth of self. Well we lost the war but we wanted and spirit. Dan o'meara says when the Gulf War ended the fifth and final myth was fulfilled the question of revenge and revenge. We have to kick got we have to get out? We have to get back and you know as George Bush. The father said after the first Gulf War Moi we should kicked out Vietnam Syndrome. In other words we have now shown that we have taken how revenge for that war. It's a fact of life. He wants to get everybody. Great what am I supposed to do about it? Bring everybody over. Is that what you think? Send the moment of all. The first Gulf War remained largely untouched by Hollywood. It pivoted instead to passwords two years after Desert Storm. There was Steven. Spielberg's Schindler's list. Hollywood would return to World War Two again with Steven Spielberg's saving Private Ryan released in Nineteen Ninety eight followed by you. Five seven one. A submarine movie released in the year. Two thousand each society has its own unique social organization of forgetting in the United States. This is colored by particularly American view of the past almost forty years ago. Norris air remarked that on National Memory is meager the fifties and even Vietnam seem as remote as the Peloponnesian war. The Pasta itself is suspect off written as well as on this American tendency to discount the way to the past. It's perpetually renewed. Virginity is embodied in the common. Put Down Your History Buddy. Rather than being seen as the force that shapes the president and eliminates the future history and the Pasta frequently reduced to the status of irrelevant. That which counts is the blank slate of the future such a social organization of forgetting confers great-power mythology and the agents industries that propagated. Joseph Goebbels once proclaimed culture should serve the state. Hollywood Studio Executive Daryl ZANUCK would agree he wants said quote if you have something worthwhile does say dress it in the glittering robes of entertainment and you'll find a ready market without entertainment. No propaganda film is worth a dime. Beyond focusing on world war. Two Hollywood began turning its lens towards terrorism. These drug cartels represents a clear and present danger to the national security nited states throughout the nineteen nineties than often working with the military. Hollywood would produce movie plotlines focusing on taking down America's enemies around the World United States battled Colombian drug terrorists in clear and present danger. One thousand nine hundred four. It's waged war against neo. Nazi terrorists die hard with a vengeance in nineteen ninety five. It fought against homegrown terrorists and under siege nineteen ninety-two international terrorists and under siege two to nineteen ninety five Russian terrorists and Air Force One and nineteen ninety seven Bosnian. Terrorists in the peacemaker nineteen ninety-seven then fight against Islamic terrorists depicted as anti-american evildoers and true lies. Nineteen ninety-four so during this period the US Department of Defense supported many of these films. It wasn't long after these nineteen ninety spade of movies. That one of America's international enemies struck back. But this wasn't a movie we are going to join one another one of our New York affiliate W. ABC for their live coverage. Kind of lot of bladder. That I looked up and all the fun is smashed right dead into the world. The World Trade Center big in less than two hours the twisted melting steel structures of the one hundred ten story twin towers with their forty thousand doors and six acres of marble collapsed in smoldering chaos. Killing almost three thousand people. It was the deadliest terrorist attack in world. History coming out. Everybody started running out and we saw the plane on the other side of the building and there was smoke everywhere. People jumping out the windows over the jumping out the windows. I guess because following the nine eleven attacks fires burned an ember smote for one hundred days but while the towers lay in ruins and bodies were still buried under the rubble and rescue workers pod through the wreckage. A meeting was taking place a meeting between Pentagon officials and a veritable. Who's who of Hollywood producers directors and screenwriters including Stephen Desouza who did die hard and die hard to Joseph Cedo who did Delta Force One missing in Action David fincher. Who DID FIGHT CLUB ALIEN? Three Rod all these people together to brainstorm about future threats and attacks scenarios at this Us Army funded Institute for Creative Technologies. Tanner Mirwaiz does now going to be global war on terror we need to sort of bring in creative thinkers we need to bring into big visionary imagination types to to imagine all of these future scenarios of war so I mean science. Fiction and speculative fiction is interestingly read by by military planners strategist all the time the US hadn't sort of launched a war of the scale. Really I mean since the Cold War and I think post nine eleven this becomes an opportunity to sort of test the waters with all of these creative and cultural workers And see if there are sort of willing to to fall in line know the Bush administration was they wanted to get Hollywood filmmakers to rally round the flag in a style reminiscent of the early days of World War. One World War Two so the Bush administration arranged to meetings with media executives spokesperson for the Bush administration. You know this is a typical quote. Quote has great respect for the creativity of an industry and recognizes its impact inability to educate at home and abroad as if you were films are simply of public education and moves had of CBS. Said I think you have a bunch of people here who were just saying. Tell us what to do. We don't fly jet planes but there are skill sets that can be put to use here and we can help by Lending or providing are tremendous creative skills and putting our skills to work for the war machine. Now they had been a whole industry. Not just in Hollywood. I mean Tom Clancy novels. Were about nothing other than imagining the kinds of threats and would happen to the US. Dan o'meara is the CO author of movies. Myth and the national security state the whole exercise of national security. The people who are charged with running the national security apparatus be the intelligence agencies or various services of the military essentially. What they are engaged in is speculation. Why why do they have to try new mansion because that's what their bread and butter is about? If the Pentagon came forward and said there is no threat. America will not be threatened for the next twenty years and the CIA and the FBI and all the other fourteen intelligence agencies said the same thing their toys would go away in some very crude sense so that fairly for bureaucratic reasons. They have to justify their own existence. Now I'm not saying the threat does not exist. Don't want to be misunderstood here The clearly are threats in the world but nobody can say we know on such and such a date. Such such thing will happen so that nine eleven apparently came like a bolt from the blue despite Hollywood movies anticipating this for at least ten years and despite an earlier attack on on the World Trade Center despite Tom Clancy writing a novel that came out in mid nineteen ninety s about a Japanese pilot flying his seven four seven into the capital and wiping out the entire American political establishment Because if you prepare for kind of war and you keep on telling people that this is what is going to happen and that we need to spend one hundred billion dollars on such and such a weapon system just in case well then you have to orient the public to believe that this is going to happen because if they don't believe it's going to happen you're not going to get the money you'll lose power. Your power will dissipate. The Bush administration is on the record saying that Hollywood celebrities were good way to reach the public because they encouraged the young to sign up for the military well known Hollywood figures like Spike Lee directed videos for the US Navy. Some of them ran during NFL. Football Games others in movie theaters from wherever that and we marketplace operas versus third-class Cars Guerrero United States naming Carlos has totally opportunities in the navy complaining about the US Secretary of defense. William Cohen enlisted celebrities like Julia Roberts. Tom Cruise Robert Deniro. Harrison Ford Sidney Poitier and will Smith to go on national TV radio and the Internet to encourage US citizens to enlist in the Army Navy Marines and Air Force Cohen explained. You've got to get to the people of influence wonders. If the children of the rich and powerful in the United States were compelled whether that be by draft or some sort of moral compunction to fight all the words the United States is currently end and has been in we see an immediate decline number of worse than the US is willing to wage You know the wars tend to be fought by underprivileged people by working class people by people of Color and the people that are often enlisting to fight these wars because this is an opportunity for Social Mobility. The idea looking for a future involves killing. Perhaps exactly right where you have to remember that the Department of Defense is the biggest employer next to Walmart on November eighth two thousand and one another meeting between Washington and Hollywood occurs in Beverly Hills Senior White House adviser. Karl Rove facilitates a high power discussion. On how Hollywood could help sell the global war on terror. Matthew Alfred believes that Hollywood followed these government narratives to the not it understood. Nine eleven was more than a political wound. It was an opportunity to grow the national security state in the months. Following nine eleven. Hollywood produced a low budget propaganda film called spirit of America. It was a montage of clips from previous action drama and wore films intended to energize the American audience. America would respond to nine eleven by honoring the memory of the people who died that day with the country united. Our young men and women would go to Afghanistan and topple the oppressive Taliban and the war to defeat terrorism would become a worldwide effort. This short film Operation Enduring Freedom was created in the spirit of Frank. Copra Second World War propaganda documentary series. Why we fight the real entertainment group. The largest theater chain in the country showed Operation Enduring Freedom before running feature films in its four thousand cinemas across America but it'll be strengthened. Their hearts victory belongs to those the believe in the most leaving at the longest. Believe WE'RE GONNA make America believe to Hollywood studios put their money behind a number of films that return to pass worst purging them of their complexity and horse and promoting them as good wars driven by benign. Us foreign policy intentions. George W Bush referred to the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center as a another Pearl Harbor. The DOD supported Pearl Harbor. Another films About the Vietnam War so we had. We were soldiers with Mel Gibson We had films about interventions in Africa. Tears of the Sun with Bruce Willis We had a film Black Hawk down We had films would air skirmishes with North Korea behind enemy. Lines to The Post nine eleven films with the United States past wars conveyed expressions of a nation. Ready to kick ASS and Respect for public servants in uniform a sympathy for military codes of conduct and celebration of the virtues forged in the crucible of combat. There's feel good propaganda and then there's what's called atrocity propaganda a favourite military tool that's used to prep the public for war. The nineteen ninety-one babies ripped from incubators story. Was One of them in the lead up to the two thousand and three Iraq war. The story circulated that Saddam Hussein who was once considered a friend of America's fed his opponents into a wood chipper. The story would eventually be proven false. There were other claims to but the one that launched the United States and Britain into the second war in the Gulf that Iraq was making weapons of mass destruction the story provided by an Iraqi defector code-named curve ball was embraced by US intelligence despite that massive lie. The war was announced the opening night of America's attack featured shock and awe which are listen to this Jamie these FA shots being fired. Galkin back it was quick and dirty and terrifying for the recipient. The Iraq war lasted twenty one days but the fighting dragged on for years estimates of the Iraqi war dead vary widely anywhere between one hundred thousand to one million in the war's aftermath as US general. Tommy Franks told reporters we don't do body counts on the American side fewer than five thousand Bree Kilt on ladies and gentlemen the President of the United States in May two thousand and three President George W Bush gibbs his and divorce speech after landing on an aircraft carrier in the Pacific Ocean like character straight out of talk behind him hung a giant banner like an item on a military to do list. It Read Mission Accomplished Thank. March two thousand and four hearty applause greets President Bush at the radio and Television Correspondents Association. Dinner after a lot of joking the president says he's going to present a slide show one slide shows him hunting around the Oval Office searching for something those weapons of Mass Destruction. And GotTA BE SOMEWHERE. Nope no weapons over there maybe under here former Australian Prime Minister Kevin. Rudd has written that quote the failure of the intelligence community before the Iraq war the Gullibility of much of the Western media and the cynical manipulation of both by the political class of the day reminds us of what can go radically wrong in our society and quote Nicholas cold calls this entanglement as structural problem. He's a historian and professor of public diplomacy at the University of Southern California. I don't see propaganda as a moment in the history of politics. I see it as an element in the structure of politics and in fact when you look at the feeling around the was that the United States is forty in the twentieth century. I can see how patents are repeated that reflect back on the way in which British people were encouraged to join in the first World War and the reaction of the writer kipling who is one of the writers that encourage British people around the war and then he loses his own son in the war and he writes these really incredible lines that I think a haunting today where he has the voice that represents a son says if I ask you why we died. Tell them that our fathers lied. And we're still in that world where People take shortcuts to motivate populations to rally populations around causes. They tell untruths we as we still live with well working on their book National Security Cinema Matthew. Alford and Tom secker investigated just how deeply involved the US military was in Hollywood movies and television series. And how movies might get altered and how some never even got made Tom. Soccer on the nineteen nine hundred four movie countermeasures which was being made by touchstone pictures and was due to stop either. Gena Davis or Sigourney Weaver. They were both attached to it at different times anyway And she was going to star is a navy psychiatrist on board an aircraft carrier who uncovers and illegal weapons smuggling ring and the dod didn't like this script. They didn't like this film project. They said they were racist. Stereotypes that the navy personnel were responding very badly to having a woman on board that some of them were guilty of sexual harassment if not sexual assault and perhaps most critically that this would remind the public Iran Contra affair and that was something they really really want to do so they turned down the script. They turned down the project so the produces went to the Spanish navy and said Oh. Do you have an aircraft carrier? We could borrow for a few weeks worth of filming the. Dod found out about this. They approached the Spanish military and said we don't want you to help on this film. We don't want you to provide this support. So ultimately the Spanish military turned them down as well and the film was never made Tom. Soccer and Matthew Alford filed hundreds of freedom of information requests about military involvement in the movie industry. Well when scholars? I started looking at this subject in depth around the early two thousand. That's the start of the twenty first century. There was a consensus that developed that. To be honest I kind of bought into as well. He looked maybe a couple of hundred films may have been affected. Thus what the. You know the very kind of boring states. No one's ready academic ger was saying and to be honest that simply wasn't true and so over a period of several years working with Matt I filed hundreds of freedom of information requests which produced thousands of pages of documents and these documents. Confirm in some ways our worst suspicions that in fact it's more like eight hundred to eight hundred fifty movies that dod has worked on and thousands of TV episodes and titles so then it was about two thousand cultural products as opposed to two hundred zero. So it really was about ten times more involvement by the government than anyone had previously known so this sheer scale of it was Was a lot of of walked us and so there is not only the elements of Hollywood films. Being used to rewrite history particularly the history of war and foreign policy this is airbrushing an entire mediated culture. So what did you find them? Or the range of taboo subjects from these freedom of information will request and other sources regarding what the military didn't want us to see in films war-crimes illegal arms sales CIA involvement in drug trafficking Black Operations Cudi Towers and assassinations and so on sex crimes committed by military personnel sexism and racism in the military drug and alcohol abuse in the military. They certainly don't like portrait's off antiwar figgers military incompetence and any depiction of the military being bested or beaten by an opponent regardless of whether that opponent is a Colombian drug cartel or a giant Lizard. Like in rampage. Rampage was actually rejected by the military. Because they didn't like how the giant crocodile was just smashing up military vehicles. Left right and center. I mean just anything really kind of is tall spikey in the nature roof of history Anything to do with military suicide is actually probably the most sensitive thing and the thing that they rewrite constantly and when you bear in mind that at times during the war on terror there have been more. Us troops killing themselves than dying in combat. The fact that the Pentagon's response to this has been to get Hollywood to try and help cover up the problem. Because it's actually the military with the most tooled up most dangerous entity on planet. Earth has the right the ability the willingness to do behind closed doors. Extensive script rewrites. I it's mind boggling. Really you've also talked about how script changes began to extend beyond the military even to agencies like the. Da the Drug Enforcement Agency. And you get this example during Bill Clinton's nineteen ninety s White House days where the White House offered up to twenty five million dollars to shows like er Beverly Hills nine. Oh two one oh and Chicago. Hope to include anti-drug themes in their scripts right and Chicago. Hope was one show that took the bait and comes to the broader security state the other agencies that are involved in Hollywood which includes everyone from the DA in the FBI and the CIA through to Nassar and the Department of Energy and Homeland Security. All of them have some form of Hollywood office. It's a similar proportion. It's around half of all spy films and spy TV shows and films about capturing terrorists so on supported by one or more of these agencies but what we can say is that something like half of all major warming. Bees are supported by the again. That's good we Bali for almost a century movies and then television has been fueled by America's national security state from Graham Greene's nineteen fifty five novel the quiet American to the very popular two thousand Eighteen Jack Ryan television series the CIA supported screenplay of the iconic novel was about bolstering America the goods motivations and nineteen fifties Vietnam. Graham Greene who was very critical of America in his novel was reportedly outraged up the result and the CIA back series Jack Ryan Frames Venezuela as a terrorist state but some observers say the bigger threat American sanctions that have led to thousands of deaths and Venezuela for deeper insight. Dan o'meara turns to military historian. Geoffrey parrots book a country made by War. He thumbs through chart after chart that details the national security state We talk about distinction between major wars and intervention and the cutoff point for a major war in American terms is where the US itself suffers one thousand or more battle deaths. We're not talking about civilian deaths. And we're not talking about the number of deaths on the opposing side So a major war is a war in which at least one thousand American soldiers died. Okay throughout American history but from seventeen seventy five to two thousand seven the US has fought fifteen major wars and one hundred interventions in which between twenty two thousand. Us soldiers died so fifteen major wars and over one hundred interventions around the world. And we don't even know about the number of deaths on the other side so yes which according to parrot who's a military historian and itself a product of the US military establishment. No country on earth is known as much war in terms of frequency and on the scale as had the United States no country has been forged in its greatness to quote everything that has made America. Great has been forged in war and blood in war and in blood. Yes exactly. You're listening to the final part of a three part series called myth sunscreen. Hollywood that war.

Biters: The Walking Dead Podcast with Dianne

1:15:18 hr | 2 years ago

Skidmark

"Sir This is Diane Welcome to biters and this is Martin L. I now I have to Alaskan housewives to talk down from the Ledge and one of them. Is it me. Let's get the spare in the air. There's one more Alaskan housewife in Alaska now. Welcome home. I don't know that we will ever get her aid to listen to the podcast or be to actually join us on it. She might listen to the podcast. I told her she needed to listen to. The podcast in our other sister moved back to Alaska recently so <hes> Diane's been hanging out with her and they've been trying to get me up north so that'd be fun again. You know it's very funny. We spent an unfortunate amount of time together after work the other night the latest. This chick has been out in the longtime unfortunate. You said you were having fun. We are are but it was really interesting because we had this very broad ranging conversation including usually listen to the podcast she was a little bit concerned that we would talk about her and Jeff which I said we already were but but it was so interesting comparing childhood memories it's like did you even grow up in the same house. Well we well you and I have that because there is such an age difference and what's funny is I always feel like there was four and five years difference for me and our other sisters and like as we get older that age gap is getting smaller but I know she's not lying about her age because she she was born the year Elvis died really funny so she's two years older than me but I feel like she's like our age. Gap is somehow closing. Okay that makes me think of one of my favorite dead Milkman songs when my time comes. That's how how I WANNA go stone fat and wealthy and sitting on the bowl. No I mean amy and I were in the house for for the most part at the same time. It's not like the tenure age gap between you and me so it's just bizarre to me that we have such different memories and we're both like Oh my God. I don't remember that what you came up with that out of nowhere. Oh that's it's so funny yeah. It was really interesting yeah when we were down to see my dad our dad <hes> we kinda did the same thing where was in. It's it's amazing what you know. Someone remembers who who who was in the same room with you but you you have no recollection of of the same things happening <hes> yeah so the other Alaskan housewife Yep. She's just as funny as you are. That's because she's hung out with me recently. Yeah it wore off. You are the source of all humor no that that is my fair share <hes> well so we are here to podcast season five episode for called Skid Mark Mark. This is a feline heavy episode. I loved it. I'm not a cat person but anything that drives my dogs crazy. It's funny Oh. I bet there were going nuts when they were hearing him talk. The lab was doing whole chat. Where's the cat look for the out? Cheating is chasing chasing skid mark off screen and then looking behind the T._v.. That is really funny so this episode drove her nets and it was hilarious. Our dogs were definitely interested but they were not that interactive. That's pretty cool. Oh yeah she she. There's a like a humane society of America commercial where the cat like looks like it's rubbing up against your screen on the T._v.. And like I expected God. She's going to knock the T._v.. Over one of these days so you said you rated higher than I did I did while I don't even know your rating but you and our other sister were saying that that you didn't like this episode and that they were going to have to step it up this season and yeah so I I liked this episode. I gave it a four point two bears in the air so I'm feeling massively guilty about not liking this season. Tom o'meara said he was going to revoke my podcasting card and tattle two gentlemen. I know I'm feeling really bad and what I said to him. Is you can tell Jenna that I think they're great actors. They are just not getting a terrific vehicle vehicle within which to work <hes>. That's that's really the way I'm feeling so far so I actually rated this one lower than last episode I give it three point two seven Sinus pinballs out of five five wow that is really low. I'm pretty consistently in the threes this season and that's atypical for me and are you rating at the show against itself for you raining against walking dead prime I am reading the show against last season. Okay last season was kind of jagger not like it's it would be hard to live up to that season but I I don't know I just I like where Erat in in the show. There's a lot of different storylines that are kind of hopefully converging and other than Morgan's flowery pep talks every once in a while. I'm really liking the shows well. You're going to have talked me out of the legend. Maybe I can get our sisters. Listen so you can talk audible edged so I do have some numbers. <hes> it's holding holding fairly steady. It was one point six five five million views on the same day point five in eighteen to forty nine which is what has been the last couple of episodes it was overall fifth for Sunday night and it was still beat <music> out by ninety day fiance terrible life choices man. I'm not watching ninety day fiance. I have expanded my viewing repertoire a lot over the past few weeks that is not on the list. No you know I watched the first couple of seasons of the show and then I think it's kind of a spin off of married at first sight and the first couple of seasons were good as in like the first couple of a couple of seasons of kind of any reality show or pretty good because like people don't know how to work the stick like it's a legitimate. <hes> email like people aren't doing this to get on T._v.. They are really interested in whatever the show is about and as so but after that after seat after season two of any show like that it's just all for ratings and they try to do crazy stuff staff and it just it goes downhill so got to sell. You don't have the love of Reality T._v.. That you do neither a you know. I don't watch very many of them and I'm probably watch more than I think I do <hes> because I like the show alone and <hes> God there's another one that's kind of like the last Alaskans is kind of okay <hes> yeah but like I said after after a second season it's it's usually it's pretty futile are just thinking that it's so hard for me to start any new series that I oh God the thought of two seasons of reality. The television just makes me sick to my stomach. I kinda let if you look at it as like a social experiment which is what <hes> <hes> Meredith for say and ninety fiancee's Kinda like I haven't seen Z ninety day fiance so I can't judge from the commercials yeah it's it's all about the the Jerry Springer fit feel and just kind of not my thing. I won't hold you to watching. It's tell us all what it's about all right so I don't have anything magical about the title Yeah No. It's pretty self explanatory the cat I do want to say though that I did share an article that had the best skid mark memes and in reactions to the biters facebook page. If you get a chance to take a look at it. It's pretty funny. Oh that's did they do. What was the cat from the vendors move captain marvel? It was goose the floor can yes S. doesn't skid mark. Look like goose. Bismarck looks a lot like goose. I feel like he's going to vomit up the task or at least have some tentacles come out of his mouth spoiler for out for several months. Oh not a cat person well for one. I'm allergic but I don't know animals chewbacca right. I did yeah you had a cab. I had a cat Yep. Even though I'm allergic. That's how much I I love animals but not kids no more kids. Oh my God. This was a kid heavy episode again and I'm sure we'll get into that. Get into that. I totally thought of you when all of those kids materialized unrealized on the screen right Oh my God we'll get into it all right so our writer was I think a man I'm assuming a man Samir Menta. Maybe it's Mehta I think it's I think it's M._T._a.. Can't read my own handwriting known for fear no Meta men and E. H.. T. M. E. H.. I can't read my own handwriting writing in the medical field well. I actually have pretty good handwriting for someone who works in healthcare too but sometimes my hands look like each. What can I say and vice versa so known for fear the walking dead known for for a series called the sinner and known for? I'm not sure if it's a series or a movie called eyewitness <hes> I haven't heard of the movie but the center was is amazing well so I was Gonna say for people who haven't seen it and I haven't seen it but I did put it on my Netflix list tonight. It is an anthology series that examines how and why ordinary people commit brutal crimes it sounded right up our alley and it sounds like it'd be a season two yeah you know season. There are two seasons. I've watched both season season. One is the superior season as in most shows the season one is the best <hes> it has Jessica Biel <hes> <hes> Bill pullman yeah. I think that's the the only ones I know but yeah yeah definitely a good show. It's on the list but right now. I'm I'm binging mind hunter taking a little break from game of thrones. I'm taking a break from Lorraina. <hes> it's four episodes. How can you take a break from it? 'cause I watched when I was in a lot a you have to pay attention to the screen because you have to read like this episode of Fear The walking dead there was a lot of subtitles but we've also also been trying to still binge <hes> raising hope. You're an geared dill hunches in in raising hope. It's it's a good show good well. Samir Meta the other thing that I noticed he has written for narcos. He's written for medium and his first credit was short called the ticket in two thousand five he also has co-producer credits for episodes one two and four on this season of fear not three not one more co producer credits. It's that's a heavy burden down so our director is a woman named Tara Nicole. I'm I'm assuming it's pronounced. Weir W. E. Y.. R. G. Actually directed the code an episode the walking dead last season which is the episode where we got Wendell and Sarah for the first time right. It's the episode where Jimbo leaves Morgan stranded on top of the car with his hands tied behind his back. ooh Yeah Yeah that was a pretty big episode. Yeah I remember I mean I just generally like last season so I remembered liking it. I remembered that they kept on one of them. Kept on kind of messing up the truck on down the road or get on the on the road or Wendell. I think kept doing this. I think so too he gets his idioms mixed us yeah so terror Nicole. We're has twenty two director credits. I thought of you because she he has directed an episode of the good. Oh in once upon a time she has episode directed an episode of the purge. I have seen almost everything you directed. I thought of Phil She has <hes> directed an episode of the Flash <hes> I finally started lucifer and she has five episodes of Lucifer to her credit as well which is another a great show so obviously based on Neil Gamons uh-huh depiction of depiction of Lucifer. Yes which you know I adore Neil Gaiman so of course which we and we didn't follow up on talking about good omens again. Now you know it's his fiscal year end. You Know Oh being accountant. They said it won't be so exciting. Yeah fiscal year end. We may have to put that off until the end until fiscal urine does over them right but so there she also directed an an episode of <hes> designated survivor. That's a pretty good show that has Kiefer Sutherland in it right yeah okay Yep and then <hes> good girls can't remember if that's on like Netflix or Hulu who <hes> but yes that's one to binge. It's got <hes> Christina Hendricks Innate <hes> and Anne Marks Wchs and so Christina had hendrix's from <hes> madman this she's there redheaded secretary <hes> okay and then <hes> I'm sorry May Women Anti Marxist may Whitman's character Sh if if you've never seen the movie and you're a female the duff is a hilarious movie and Mae Whitman is Hilarious so yeah I've seen just about everything. Tara has directed directed. It looks like it was on N._B._C.. Okay I think they're in season two right now but she's so she's got an interesting. <hes> director's Credit Taryn Nicole does she's in post production for two episodes of Wu Tang in American saga. I wrote that down. You know I worked at a music store when when Tang clan and was really big but it was not my genre of music at all so I can admit to never having listened to one of their songs. No neither neither have I. It's not it's not my forte now. When I think of the Wu Tang clan they they have an a- an album that they only produce like one of and it was like they auctioned off or sold it off or something it was like it was something ridiculous like seven million dollars for this one album and you're the you're we're the only one that could listen to it and farm bro bought it know that current? Is You really yeah rally yeah. He bought it with olive his earnings on jacking up the prices of insulin. I remember that guy. He was so really were me yeah so Wu Tang clan e even if their music was grade. It's like totally spoiled for me now but I think it's interesting that <hes> she directed two episodes of what seems to you be an eleven episode series about Wu Tang. You can watch that one on let us know what it's about. Thanks yeah. There's a lot of other stuff on my list like the center yes. The cerebral and minehunter is getting a season two so I'm looking forward to that well and we're also listening to. I think it's it's a follow up to like season in two of in the dark podcast because of a recent Supreme Court ruling it affected the case that this series follows so interesting. I've been listening to podcasts too so okay. I'm GONNA totally go off on a tangent and I'm going to reveal to the biters. Just how weird I am so I found a podcast with Krishna Das who is an eastern. He's he's a western dude who went to India <hes> back when everybody was looking for their grew in the late seventies or sorry late sixties early seventies and I've really fallen in love with him over the years and I figured out that he had a podcast. It's phenomenal. If you're thusly inclined so oh I highly recommend the pilgrim heart to anyone who leans that way interesting. I've been doing a lot of Yoga and chanting see I've just been doing a lot of freaking out and panicking thinking well. I'm doing yoga and chanting. Don't freak out and pam think about that after fiscal year right anyway that's that's my podcast recommendation so that's a little out there but ride. That's awesome when day I will meditate. I'm not a very good meditative. I'm a better chanter okay yeah they. They serve the same purpose they get your head out of your head Yup our rights or featured cast member. I didn't find a whole heck of a lot about her. No Oh sorry featured cast member is Bailey. DELICTI plays Anne <hes> and she does not have much in the way of an I._M._D._b.. Profile or a social she has an instagram but instagram is mainly pictures. <hes> there's a little bit you know you into her life on her instagram. <hes> I did manage to find her age because Oh I was wondering she's playing such a young kind of looking character young a character. She's twenty one in real life you kidding no so I would ask the pictures of her and I thought boy she looks a lot more more mature than the character that she's playing. I would have had no idea she was twenty one. Are you sure her so the INFO comes from sky bound dot com and the article is meet the kids from fear the walking dead season five so it looks like she's like twelve. I know that means. We're getting old. I I'm sorry I'm Florida. I can't let back Oh okay so I was in a shop the other day that you have to be twenty one to get into because it's Legal Eagle here in Alaska now it was called the Green Elephant <hes> and there was a girl that came in and they immediately card you upon entering I mean there's like pretty much a bouncer at the the doors of all of the shops here in Juneau and they card everyone who comes in even if it's like an employee on their day off they will card you and I think it's just because if they ever get asked if they if they they ever get in trouble and they asked well did you card you can always say yes right. It's liability stuff yeah I mean like people like would leave and come back in and they would ricard them eight so <hes> this girl walked in and I was like okay there is I would card her for an R. rated movie and sure enough. She was over twenty one so I can't judge age I I. I still can't believe that this girl is twenty one. Are you sure okay so Bailey. Google wow okay yeah. There's an article at Undone walking that says the same thing yep she attended the University of South Florida and he's previously he worked as an acting coach. I just I know and that's that's a compliment tour. I mean <hes> you know in the industry. Looking young is is definitely a plus because you have a wider range you can play and youth usually means roles so she is very convincing. I'm going to give her huge props for being very convincing as essentially a preteen girl right right right so I think part of the reason why we probably see her is young and why I actually usually am seem as young is because she's only five foot riches. How Oh that's funny? Go show at ease yeah but yeah. There's really not that much out there about her. <hes> this is kind of her biggest role with the other rolled it. She seems to be most credited in is a movie called at the end of the day and did you look this up. I looked it up and it looks really funny. I mean it certainly right for conflict based on the description of the plot. She was fairly far down in the cast list. Well I actually watched a clip of it that featured that prominently featured her and she seems to do very well so the synopsis for the movie is a conservative of course professor at a Christian college finds himself in a gay support group to stop their launch of an L G B l._G._B._T.. Homeless youth shelter in their small town and so barely plays a young <hes> a student who's going to Christian college and she is of course in this youth group. That's totally against this l._G._B._T.. Shelter opening so and it kind of looks a little after schooley messaging where she yeah in the end everyone laughs are learned their lessons and learns to love you know but <hes> the the clip did that. I did watch <hes> she did an amazing. Job So she's she'll far. She's an amazing actress in her two prominent roles <hes> by you can it. I'm actually really interested in watching this movie. <hes> you can stream it on video so yeah take a look at that but other than that. There's really not that much out there about her boy thought one of the interesting things and this is purely from her I._M._D._b.. Page she actually has a bunch of credits for acting in short <unk> shorts. Yes seven shorts in total <hes> and she also has to producer credits for shorts neither of which she was in well she's been an acting coach. <hes> I did watch watch the <hes> kind of behind the scenes interview with her <hes> for the short Cassandra <hes> but there really wasn't much about her or anything like that <hes> she kinda she kinda gives away. The plot got a little bit <hes> but she she seems to be very funny and <hes> that was a that was three years ago so she was eighteen <hes> but yeah I watched a couple of like interviews at film festivals and <hes> <hes> behind the scenes videos of her on the set of the shorts and she she doesn't talk too much about herself so we'll it makes more sense that she has producer credits. Now that we know of her advanced age uh-huh advance Dave's that's awesome but I expect that we'll probably see more of her since she's really kind of in a demographic were her career should be starting to take off yep definitely <hes> <hes> she one of the interviews that I watched with her. I think it had something to do with the Disney Channel but I don't see anything that would be Disney channel. I wish on her I._M._D._b.. Credits <hes> yeah <hes> she was in something called Legion of Ru <hes> one episode at a T._v.. A series of fantasy <hes> has no end date but it's it only has one season for twenty seventeen <hes> now so that may have been the Disney channel thing but <hes> there's a lot of pictures of love Disney Channel lur Disney stuff on her. I err on her instagram so and she was Prom Queen. Oh my God that's funny yeah. There's a picture of her being crowned Prom Queen and graduation and stuff like that she she looks Super Fun looks like she's having a good time and her career is about to take off well. I learned a lot about Bailey. Thank you at the very least her age right which is table flabbergasting. I would have hiked her no older than seventeen I wouldn't even you wouldn't have even put her that old yeah because I think she's playing like twelve or thirteen show. I assume that she was a kid that was being raped by her family like Cooper Dodson. Oh Yeah I totally expected to have like her. Social media be run by her parents and and you know and have the disclaimer at the top but no nope which by the way this shows you how terrible my memory is. Did we do Hoover Dodson as a featured cast yes okay. I thought we did God well well. I've got a fair amount in whisperers corner. Oh good so in keeping with my new tradition. I did read the Forbes Review for this episode. Oh Man I really should have done that well so it was written by Eric Fien Aka the guy who doesn't know what nurses do and it was entitled the biggest problems with fear the walking dead and why it might be time to call it quits. Oh my goodness. No I mean I actually actually kind of related so his reasons and I didn't write down like all of the individual points within the points but he said the writing is lazy. Morgan is ruining fear. His do-goodery is poisoning the show this so was supposed to be about the Clarks and God. It's just so boring. Okay I agree kind of with everything except for the boring there there's been some some plot holes that I will get into and we both are a little over Morgan's flowery pep talk so I kind of agree with him there but I don't find it boring so he actually said and I wrote it down quoted that I've given up on better show. That's funny so as much as he doesn't know anything about nurses I actually found myself agreeing with some of the points that he made in in his review okay so and here's the thing I was actually going through all of the shows that I have watched and kind of fell off in the middle and I was I was thinking would i. I still be watching fear the walking dead because I was like I can't imagine just stop watching you know the walking dead or fear the walking dead but there are so many other shows that I have I have just fallen off of like any the flash supergirl supergirl ero like I really need to catch up on all of those and then listen to fill but I I actually I don't know this one fear the walking dead may if I hadn't been podcasting thing about it. It may have fallen off. They've got a chance to turn it around for me. They've got what twelve episodes left in the season but at this point I'm not sure that I would still be watching it if I wasn't podcasting it and so oh diehard about the main series right and it would be one of those where it would stay on my list and maybe I would go back in and binged like a season or a half a season you know in a week's time you know three months after the season it did but I I don't know if I would keep up on it so I mean it's like. I'm not over the moon about it but I don't dislike. Get as much as you guys. Well you know again. They have time to turn it around right. I just watched so much other T._v.. which I don't so I'm kind of in the place where for every hour that I devote to television is kind of precious time bright you know so it's got to be really good to keep me engaged and so release leasing Lorena <hes> so for two people who were complaining about not having talking dead afterwards as much as I missed talking about the fire listening to other people talk about the finer points of the show I actually relishing my <music> our off? I think honestly I might enjoy this season more if we had talking Oh yeah I could see that. I think it's just because I I'm just been so crazy busy with work. Ask I any hour that I can get a quick nap or a dog. Walk in or something the APP so I as much as I miss talking dead. I also like the extra hour so will mediate. Don't miss this much. I think all right deeper into whispers corner so obviously the helicopter connection was confirmed. <hes> multiple sites and I didn't realized this not only were there the interlocking circles on the side of the helicopter but the letter was also on the helicopter E. S.. Let's see there's an article at screen rant dot com which suggests that neagle is is the future of the franchise <hes> and they really point to both the T._v. and the comics trying to do that redemption Ark with Megan so I thought that was a pretty interesting article and this was pointed out by Thomas o'meara when he was texting me after watching the episode and it was confirmed in a comic book comic but that we tried it again Comic Book Dot Com Article <hes> there are suggestions that these cigar that Salazar was talking about. It's a reference to Abe interesting. I thought that was a great catch on Tom's part yeah. I don't think I would have ever got that. It's so obvious but yeah I missed it. Yeah 'cause I you know it's we forget about the time jump sometimes and Abe an Eugene were both referenced in Al's tapes last season <hes> so there's potentially a connection there as well it would be like just minimal crossovers even if it were just the tapes that would be cool like they. They don't have to like bring him back for a whole story arc or anything but just a little reminder revisiting of our old cast members yeah I mean I don't think they can just in terms of the time John Ben kind of timeframes but they could certainly do a bottle episode where they elaborated more on the tape and the contact with with Eben an Eugene Yeah. I don't think they will but they could. Oh No <hes> so other news. Next episode is the episode that was directed by Sarah Wayne Kelly's so we've got that coming up. You probably didn't see this because you watch on itunes. You don't get it as a broadcast series but the first preacher ads were up with fear this episode I think I watched one either on twitter <music> or online somewhere so so there was no plot reveal whatever it was just kind of these nails connected images and then it said it was back on August Fourth Yep Yep. I think that's what I saw when I texted you that it is back on August fourth. I posted this on our facebook page for any of our friends in Virginia the walking dead is looking looking for Zombie Extras for the new series which shoots this fall there actually is a link in the article where you can submit basically your your profile on your head shots and that kind of thing very cool here. They have to go to Zombie school right eight and it was interesting that I read the article I skimmed it really fast and they are looking for people with a background in dance. <hes> which I don't think we're going to see a reboot of thriller. I just think they need to be able to move their bodies in order to go to Zombie school all right. You have to be a little bit limber and maybe they're looking for certain body tight. I mean you know some of us. Do Look like well walkers so but we all can't be well walkers right. Some of them have walkers. There is speculation in another Forbes article which I thought was really interesting. I had not heard this theory so the theory is that as <music> are people who were recently bitten and bees are people who are not bitten and the same article and I think I had heard this but I didn't really retain it. Angela King confirmed that heath. Heath was kidnapped by C._R._M.. So we're probably going to see heath again in one of the Rick Grimes movies that's Kinda speculation. Oh I would love that I don't. I thought it was really interesting that I bet she confirmed his kidnapping. That's so cool I had not seen that headline. That is awesome. I need to set up google alert for heath. I don't agree with the A._B.. Thing though yeah I don't know where that came from. I just ran across it in that article and I thought that's really interesting. I'll have to put it out there and see if anybody else's heard bad now like my only really working theory about A._B.. Is mm-hmm because of the Commonwealth in the books and we might get that soon in the the main show <hes>. I'm thinking that like as are the upper-class people that AH BS or the the workers the laborers that makes sense. Oh go ahead. It's the only thing I can come up with. I was kind of thinking about it in terms of the strong in the week you know yeah but now bidding not bitten. We'll find out chest have people bidden like he just ran up all the unbidden people and be like l. like these three people. Let's let's test them. All of a sudden there as and you know me. All of them would be kids right of our final item for whispers corner is is that prodigal son. which is Tom Pains? New Series on Fox is set to premiere on Monday September twenty third at nine pm. I don't know if I will catch it yeah yeah. I'm not sure that I will either. I mean I really like Tom Paine. It doesn't really sound like something like genre that I'm going to devote a lot of energy to go but I wish him well. I hope it goes well for them. Absolutely especially since we can't happen back on the show right not not that I not that I wished Maggie's other show would fail but I'm kind of liking what she's going to be back on prime. At least we think I hope yeah I mean there's no competition and it doesn't sound like she's coming back fulltime even if she does but yeah she'll have more more time on prime right well. That's all I've got for whispers corner okay. So why don't you tell me you're good so I am. I really liked this episode because of the Salazar and Charlie <hes> kind of breath misadventure. I think that they really clicked and I liked their chemistry and I'm kind of feeling Charlie is like Ophelia two point. Oh they certainly they are implying that heavily <hes> just their their interactions <hes> you will you know nobody nobody picks. Nobody takes the artichoke hearts and it how you know they they just they seem to be able to like see through each other's crap and are you know there's there's not going to be a lot of I don't feel like it's <hes> the the Morgan unleash it kind of chemistry I just I don't know I would so much grimmer Morgan inally I could totally see these two going off together like he charlie leaving the group to go a Salazar because I don't know they just it. It's like they fulfil something in each other. He he's lost his daughter and she lost her parents. You know and it just it worked. I really liked it and I hope we see more of it. I did like the moment where she very coolly surveyed the store and was like yeah. This is how I would knock it over and this is how I would distract the walkers and this is how you do it exactly exactly so. That was my good so I think that's probably why I liked this. Show is it was basically the Charlie. Salazar Skid marks show. Oh the other thing I will say that I really liked the moment I did very much like the moment where he said that kind of his insights about being able to do things over and turn things around and then he said I felt like you needed to hear that too yeah which was basically we what he was going to say to a failure when he saw failure again yeah yeah see I feel like I feel like affiliate two point. Oh yeah like I said they're they're being fairly heavy handed about it but I did. I'd like some of the dynamic between the two of them yeah so that was my good. What was yours well? My good was small but powerful. I loved Skid Mark. I just thought he was so fun to watch watch. He was so incredibly well trained and I thought what the heck does it take to train account like that. You know I see people like on Japanese variety shows. Do you watch those after you watch Gotcha reality television like Korean singing show. I watch a lot so I need to read more. I know I don't even like reading the captions. Excuse me I love to read. I just haven't gotten into anything lately but they I have seen people like train. Cats really well. I don't know what it takes but I mean you can literally get them to jump through hoops of fire so well. I have to tell you that skid mark was right up there with Gustav Larkin in Captain Marvel and with the cat in men in black one who had the galaxy on its caller yeah yeah I actually did a little google search and I was like iconic movie cats e W has an article about twenty-five iconic movie cats Goose Larkin is number six the number one cat hat is the unnamed cat who was in breakfast at Tiffany's the nine hundred sixty one audrey hepburn movie okay so he's a fun article if you like cats if you wanna find out find out about cats in movie history it was a fun article. That's funny. Do you have an orange Tom Cat we do and he has hyperthyroidism so he is skin and bones. He looks terrible terrible and our only choice at this point is to keep shoving pills Danamon hope he responds or or to have his thyroid gland taken out which is like a hugely expensive insane surgery yeah <hes> so we're GONNA keep shopping pills down him and hope he responds well. I was actually hey. This is so cliche. I was walking my Husky at the glacier the other day he could still much attention from tourists and everyone wants to pet him and they're everyone's like Oh. How old is he and he's like thirteen now so hard for me to believe he's so up there? He's not he's not thirteen because we have only been in the house for ten years this year and he was between one and two yeah when we got him only been in the House for ten years this year and we you had. We helped you find him probably three years after we got here so he's probably eight no yes. I've had him longer than me anyway. You need to look at your vet records. He's at he. He's getting up there in years though I mean for for a larger breed dog and he actually has lupus so we have he's been on a ton of supplements and medications since he was diagnosed last year and eastern great so the modder the models of modern veterinarian well and I would imagine that he is a lot easier to pill than rusty is you'd be surprised how seriously I make peanut butter pill pockets doc it and then I have to put extra peanut butter on them. Well all I can tell you is. It's not my job to fill the cat. Thank God not as well trained as skid mark. No definitely not all alright. Tell me you're bad so I I actually have two small bads and I know for as as highly as irate the episode having two Bads is just way out there but I feel like Salazar could have got no way much easier like I feel like he dilly-dallied on the wrong side of the the vehicle all right they lost me at not just flooring it. Yeah I feel like he should have like Adenauer like walked around the vehicle when they were getting ready to fire I mean he would have been out of the line of fire and not endanger of of you know even one stray Walker who the bullets missed or whatever her and then underneath it's a choke point. You know you can bottleneck and you know he was stabbing them in the head but he it just seemed to be way too perilous for how slow emmy he was just walking away from the walkers I like okay but lost me at him and Charlie not flooring it and leaving the herd of walkers behind like way before in the episode yeah I I was like what are I was like. Maybe they're leading them away from the store. You're so they can circle back but no that didn't happen either well. When I watched it the second time he basically was like the herds GonNa get bigger and it's going to be a problem so I think his plan was that he wanted to try to pick them off somehow but again they lost me not flooring it and <hes> fascinating away from walkers yeah yeah I mean I can see how he would not want a heard in the vicinity of his safe house but again you you could have led them off in a direction a. and then just like made a wide circle around and come back behind him where they couldn't see you know and just let them wander off into the distance but one of my no so my other bag fresh shop the heels of Salazar Basically Lake not even speed walking away from these walkers? Anne and the other brother can't get away can't get away like they are running and like the walkers going so fast and the walkers are actually tied together with their intestines and I don't know if any of you have ever been in a three legged race before but life three we live people to live people cannot do this let alone five of you string together dead brought by though we dig it an answer as to how we got to actually are Oh yes. They were able to break the gut chain pretty easily. They were there so it was just it was it was fresh off of Salazar basically strolling away from these walkers and all of a sudden Anne and her brother cannot get away so those are my the lazy easy writing yeah. That's that's why I kind of had to agree with the Forbes Guy <hes> <hes> yeah well. My bad is bigger. I was really frustrated by the whole reliance on the plot device of Daniel being so angry with victor like I don't even remember what Victor did in season three that may Daniel so angry so then I had to look it up and I was like you know I shouldn't have to rewatch half of. Season three for this conflict between Salazar instagram to be meaningful now but they never liked each other he hated strand from the <hes> the ranch and even before then I mean article that I read that talked about their chemistry and talked about how they didn't like each other from season one but this really relied on the point of strand lying to Salazar about a few Leah and about affiliate still being back at that hotel and I had to look that up I was like what did he lie about. Why did he lie well? He lied to manipulate Daniel into taking him to the hotel but again it was such a big plot device for this episode voted for the conflict between the two. I thought you know as kind of a halfway committed watcher. I shouldn't have to go back and watch half of a season to figure this out agreed yeah <hes> I will now that you mention it. I I kinda like the fact that like Salazar Kinda keeps disappearing but keep pop keeps popping up but it's also really stunting his character character line. Oh story into that good all right. You're ugly. Was it a good uglier badly so it was a little bit of both but more good than bad <hes> <hes> I loved. I hated to love love to hate one of those the use of the propellers to kill Walker also what I didn't like about it it is I feel like it's it's like we keep getting sequels to a horror movie and they keep having to one up themselves on the kills and so I feel like we're we're going a little off the map with how we're killing zombies now but but I also kind of love it <hes> that first splatter that they did like a close up of this this is when I miss talking dead because I wanted to see the behind the scenes of that and all also could think is it's like being front row at a gallagher show. That's funny so if you're who don't remember because we're getting ourselves. Gallagher used to smash watermelons with a with a the he smashed many things but mostly watermelon and the first three rows of people had to in the audience had to be covered in plastic and wearing and raincoats and stuff so I just it. It was a very cool visual. It was very fun. I don't go too much further than than killing walkers with pro propellers so it yeah it's. It's getting a little crazy but it's still fun so so I have to say that I wrote down that there were a couple of Walker kills that I really liked that was one the other one was when Salazar stabbed the Walker right through the mouth. I noticed that one and I'm like that's not killing the brain <hes> oh he got the brain stem k stem. I'm okay with them getting the brain stem. Okay I mean that's that's your Lizard Brain. That's what keeps you breathing and moving. It's OK okay I will I will we'll go with that doctor. I'm not a doctor but I play one on TV all right. My ugly was a bad ugly. The surprises you right right so it was really feeling like we are wasting Salazar as a character. I'm so frustrated that we just get him back and now he's taking off again and he's going to fulfill some kind of secret crazy mission. Do you really think he's going to go like at don't you think he's GonNa get caught up or like Charlie's going to win them back like I feel like it's he's just threatening to leave you know so. What did he say? He's signing he. He's really intending to leave but I think like the show is threatening his his leaving. He said there's a reason I've been here on my own for this long. I need to go take care of it so I think they're probably going to give us a bottle episode. I'm just a little frustrated that we just got Salazar back. He's kind of one of the redeeming things of the series right now and now he's disappearing again yeah so that's my ugly I hadn't actually yeah. I didn't think about that but you're right. <hes> I mean I definitely don't think they're gonNA let him disappear. I do think they're going to do a bottle episode and somehow kind of Hook him back into the whole season but right now the threat of him disappearing after just a brief resurgence is not making me happy yeah and you know I feel like someday if slash when they kill him. It's going to have to be spectacular right. We're going to have to see him as a walker or he's going to have to like be decapitated or something because otherwise we're just going to be like now. He's just down six lives now all right I smell running and I think it's coming from that cookie tin. I saw that cookie tim this time and thought of you okay so yes speaking of Salazar are being all mysterious and having to go off. What is with the cookie ten I? I was just joking the last time I mentioned it because nobody likes US cookies. They're disgusting. I don't know how they keep selling and why they keep making them but that nobody likes those cookies because they preserve while in his e._a.. Apparently but there's got to be something else to that tin 'cause they focused in on like three times. This episode and I'm just like okay what fits in cookie tin besides discussing cookie any theories like. Is it a feelies ash you know. I don't know what yeah it's obviously of great importance. Maybe has the key to what he's going away to take care of yeah. That's it's it's got a it's got to be that but it was it was just so funny that I called pulled it out. It was just random thing in the background that episode and it it winds up being a thing so I gotta talk about the Little Prince Okay so I read this book back in French class in French when I was like a senior in high school right low petit print is a fifty pounds. Yes I am Tom to saint exit play. That's as good as my French gets these days so Ophelia when she was talking or not affiliate Lucy. I knew I knew we would do that because I said Oh fia. When Luciano was talking to Dylan about the little prince she was really kind of talking about what this whole entire season was about so I looked at you know what the themes of the little prince were and it was basically that the important things in life are beauty love love and friendship and that life is only worth living when it's lived for others how French but it also really goes along with the whole theme of helping people out this season right it does I another thing that I thought was really interesting? Though is that the little prince is really about seeing the world through children's eyes and it actually is really kind of derisive of adults and I thought it was very interesting that we're kind of seeing the season through children's eyes with Charlie Dylan Max Anne and the sport of children that suddenly appeared. I just wondered if maybe that had to do with hooking it back to the little prince as well <hes>. I hadn't thought of that 'cause my memory of the little prince is on Nickelodeon. It was a cartoon <hes> I kind of remember the illustrations but I'm wondering if I'm thinking about them with the book and if maybe they were original illustrations it's been a long time yeah and so I was like no he was the little kid who lived on that like moon or something and his planet called like be one twenty six or something right and like it's so tiny and it's just him and this rose that's kind of rural and to get to Earth to go on his adventures adventures. He catches shootings he catches. Is it shooting stars or was it the birds Oh my God honestly it's so long and feeling was describing this Bookham legless Yana. I did it to Yup. I knew he would do that. 'cause I meant Udofia <hes> so when she was describing the book I was like that's not the little prince I remember and actually had to go. Look it up and I'm like I guess that's a description of the book. Maybe it's because I watched the show I actually Kinda WanNa go back and read it. It's kind of down on the list which has grown over the past couple of weeks but it's been so long and I remember really loving reading it in the original friends that it would be interesting to go back and read it now <hes>. I don't think I'm going to go back and watch the show which I think you can actually watch episodes on Youtube you. I'm sure you can stream somewhere. I'd be super surprised if you couldn't the other thing that I wanted to say about. The little prince is that it was translated into over three hundred languages WHOA has had sales of more than one hundred ridden forty million copies worldwide since it was published in nineteen forty-three wow and we have an episode this season that is named after the little prince. I think it season sick or episode six. What's episode? What's the name of it? It's called the little Prince Oh oh I will. That's gotta be Dylan Right. That's kind of what I was thinking yeah yeah so speaking of children speaking of children. I think it's a little more the lost boys than Lord of the flies. I think that's a reasonable comparison. I I could be wrong because has those kids were super well armed. Did you notice they totally made me think of the kids from scars and I thought you know enough with rehashing the stuff that's already been done in the main series yeah and it also made me think of the episode with the kids in black summer. Oh I liked that episode because those kids were totally Lord of the flies and then that was the inspiration Parisian they drew that episode from right and so a win all of these kids come out of the woodwork. Basically I was like Oh and they're like they're all carrying like assault rifles else. I wonder if the show runners were like black summer solar idea. I think the idea is kind of been done to death but will see <hes> yeah I just the the one boy who you heard the helicopter and was like get down. get down that was Max. That was the older brother it T- like with his hair he totally looked like a loss. I'm like okay. Maybe maybe these kids aren't going to be totally. The evil they're just going to be kids. So did you catch that. Their parents were all the adults who were imprisoned and died at the camp. I I didn't know it okay. I didn't catch that no I I. I realized that they're all their parents had died. Nearby and Morgan said those are your parents at the camp and yeah I did not put that together it it kind of argues for why they're all together in that particular place a band of of wild children. How did the kids survive and the adults didn't? That's a good question. I'm still not quite sure how all of the adult Scott imprisoned yeah <hes> to be continued. I guess we'll definitely get more about kids. Yeah I mean they're going to have to tell them off because I can't imagine we're GonNa have a horde of kids wandering through the rest of the season either kill them off or leave them in the capable hands of someone no one else maybe grace oh maybe although she's dying so that's not gonna work very well true. I don't think she's going to come up with the cure for radiation poisoning in the Zombie apocalypse right yeah now all right. I know this is heresy but I didn't particularly love the Blues Music Yeah. He didn't strike me either. It was kind of grading actually yeah that's better. I'm grateful for that. I did like the Charlie like that. That helped her connect with Salazar that she she knew this random blue lose singer. I thought it was funny that he had to use a boombox and stick it up on the the dashboard. Oh yeah the car was so new. It apparently didn't have a tape deck now dating myself. My jeep has a tape deck. Oh my God now. You're really dating yourself. I have a nineteen seventy-two jeep commando. It's the car I learned to drive on basically. Does it even run it does oh that's so it's my bug out vehicle because you can literally fix just about anything on it your vehicle just in case yeah. It's you can fix it with like a flat head screwdriver and a wrench. I mean there's not a part on it. If you are mechanically manically inclined that you can't fix with tools you can keep in the glove box so that's my Zombie apocalypse vehicle very cool. It's not actually very far in Juneau which has like sixty miles of road but hey it's a jeep yeah so thinking about vehicles. I was like Oh what's the significance of the truck. That was the change in the opening credits will. It's the semi the telling the plane right yeah. That was Kinda cool. I didn't realize it until the Second Watch through neither did I <hes> and speaking of Second Watch through one thing that I didn't get I kind of was in the same boat as Charlie. I thought like I L I didn't realize until my second watch. I thought that Salazar was the one <hes> setting up the the traps because he he you know he kind of knew how to sort of disarm that one and he was very nonplussed about the the dead person and you know thanks for. Thanks for your vehicle. <hes> you know I was like Oh God is he setting these awful traps to kill people and take their stuff so I was totally Charlie Charlie's boat until I you know put my phone down in watch. Hey to be fair. I'm playing the walking dead our world while I'm watching the show all right I watched should twice and I wasn't on my phone the whole time either time. That's why I do a rewatch the night we podcast right all right so we had a brief revisitation from a C._R._M.. Officer <hes> and I was reading on Comic Book Dot Com that it looks like we're getting a new cast member who is one of the C._R._M.. Officers interesting an actress named Sydney Sydney lemon another chick sounds like she may appear next episode Yeah 'cause we're GonNa see else to <hes> story next episode. That's right eight <hes> interesting so speaking of checks. I posted it on the biters page but <hes> I I absolutely loved that depiction of Rosie. The riveter Owen the make another stir the beef reference in this yes so I've been missing. We've been missing the Sarah `Isms C._N._O.. And the <hes> bears in the air and Yeah I've been missing it so <hes> for those of you who are not on the facebook page or on twitter <hes> somebody did a rosie the riveter pose style drawing <hes> with Komo Collins Sarah <hes> as Rosie the riveter and it says let's go stir up some beef and <hes> I the I couldn't find the guy on facebook but he's at fan boy underscore museum on twitter and he does some of the most amazing fan art and it's not just for fear the walking dead. It's for a ton of other stuff too so <hes> I just I loved this rosie the Riveter <hes> depiction with Sarah so I just had to get that a little shoutout. I was glad to have her back. I really like her character a lot yeah her and window yeah. I yeah definitely missed them Sinus pinball well. I didn't have a whole heck of a lot more. I mean obviously the helicopter was a giant thing and the note that I wrote to myself about the helicopter. After the second time through was will Goldberg and Chambliss kill fear to bring it into the greater walking dead universe see an I with all of the stuff that's happening the an walking dead prime with you know losing rick and not having a lot of Maggie <hes> losing. WE'RE GONNA lose miss shown here at some point you know. I just feel like they're killing off the prime. I'm show and rolling people into fear. I don't know I think there's still a lot of story left. In walking dead prime. I think there is too but they you know they're burning through through the cast members and <hes> and I'm not saying that that you know in a negative way. I get like I get it. They've been doing this for you know ten years a lot of them but doing for ten years or slightly less but it you know and it's it takes up such a big a part of your life that sometimes you just want to take a break or go off and do something else and panther role in avengers endgame right. Try Try to try your hand at starring to show <hes> but yeah I just I don't know I they I feel like they definitely are merging the shows and then of course we're getting other shows in the greater walking dead universe right. We've got the third series coming out starting this fall right and then you walker without getting bit right. Did you have anything else. I don't think so <hes> yeah it's I'm. I'm good like I feel like that. We're going in a good direction. There's a lot of story lines that are going to converge you know we have Dwight and June and John and we have Al Story and now we've got <hes> our other group with the Salazar Charlie <hes> Luciana and Lord of the flies so I think we've got a bunch of really good story lines that are <music> all going to converge and You know be the this midseason finale season finale one of them. I don't know where the headed. I can't read whether headed <hes> well. They're headed for a very short midseason break. There's only going to be two weeks between the mid season finale and season five premiere really yeah. Wow Wow that's unusual. There is a article on a site called up well. It's the UN dead walking DOT COM <hes> Yup yeah which is a little bit of a spoiler recite. If you don't want spoiler is probably probably be careful going there to now. It's not hugely spoiler spoiler but it does have some spoilers yeah well. I mean that kind of makes sense. They started this season so late and then they still l.. WanNa tie it up in time to get to the main show <hes> it makes sense but I'm kind of surprised that they're only taking just a brief break like that right because walking dead prime leaves us hanging just after Thanksgiving ving until like Valentine's Day usually beginning of December but yeah then pretty much until beginning February yeah yeah it's it feels like forever. It does not quite as long as season eight of game of thrones. I'm not there yet have taken a little break and still beginning of season three. I'm kind of letting it subtle least you don't have to wait two years for for six episodes exactly just saying there wasn't method to waiting so long to get into right. <hes> you know I do do that with books. You know for not being a reader I will discover a <music> author who has like twelve books in a series and I'll just below through the series in like a month so speaking of which girl who doesn't read. Have you checked out the synchro novels. No I texted those to you. You need to read need those. They're very good and there are two completed series so you can't say that that you didn't that you were holding off because you are waiting for more volumes to come out. I will get right on that school year at Right <unk> appropriations I <hes> I just gotTa get through each day so get through this this week. We will talk to you next week but until then just remember take it one dead day at a time have a good week everybody everybody by.

There's a growing body of evidence that supports the the age old adage. Laughter is the Best Mess Medicine in two thousand sixteen. A Cross sectional study or a Cross Sectional Study Examining Cardiovascular Disease. Among Japanese seniors found that subjects who reported rarely laughing had a sixty percent higher. Risk of stroke compared to those who reported laughing laughing almost every day.

Okay and they're allowed a banana cookie with like an orange glaze on top and so It's it's a banana cookie but I didn't have three bananas because Someone Eight one of the bananas yesterday so I was down to two bananas but I did have pineapple and then there was another recipe in there for pineapple cookies so I thought I'm going to replace that third banana with pineapple. And you add a little only a tablespoon more flour just because you know pineapples and a lot more liquid. They turned out amazing. So it's it's you know and I used a really good flower that I got it. The Dallas farmers market. I don't remember what the name of it is but it's a milled in Austin incredible. You can get some really good stuff right now. You can't go to the farmer's market but hopefully that'll be changing here soon as the weather warms up but Yeah so you can improvise and I felt so good to make those cookies.

It is so full of so much incredible information. I encourage everyone to go and get it. Is it on Amazon Dot Com as well okay? So it's at changing habits DOT COM and at Amazon Dot Com. It's when my aunt dot COM dot. Au I've just going to add that. Changing HABITS DOT COM dot. Au because you are calling us from Australia. This after fifteen. It's three fifteen am wow good morning wondering well. I love it. I think it's so cool that you're you know you're kind of in the middle of the night on a radio show. How cool is that Here in Dallas Texas one of the greatest cities here in America. And so. Let me ask you this so you know in. My question is in a class of twenty five school children. Fifty four percent have a chronic disease. Four we'll have a learning disability six. We'll have asthma allergies or add. These are United States statistics. Can you expand on these? Yeah well when we look back in the sixties. We can say that. This was not happening. And now I'm in a sixties child and I remember these days. I remember going to school and nobody having these problems whereas today this is happening. So we've been doing something and it all started around the nineties and the light nineties so we we're starting to do things to not only ask supply but To Be Mad. Vaccinations at we're having the amount of medicines that are being given to children but once upon a time medicine so we'll give him too old people. My Dad was a pharmacist and he remembers you. Know the medicines we use for the people that are in their seventies not for the kids that are just being born so I think it's a combination of many things but food can make a huge difference especially when we look at Whole foods not ultra prices foods and ultra prices. The foods that have bilas and colors and flavors and additives and starches and binders. But no food. Chemicals might up state and in Michael tables. I discuss how they are doing this. And it's actually getting quite scary but especially in this time Wave saying Kogi nine taint the discussion that it's genetically modified whizzing micro organisms in the food supply that being genetically modified to make food additives. And my question is what is stalling microorganisms escape from the. You know the places that they're in In the fermentation VATS. They're in and make it into our microbiome and we. The variety of bacteria microbiome is really really important and you know as an escape their. What if that starting to create a problem and we don't even know that this is happening right. Well I think about all those things to and you can't help it if the more you read the more you connect the dots and you're like wow this seems connected to that and and it probably is. I'm not a doctor or a scientist but I do have very very logical clear thinking brain and you can't help but ask that question most definitely and not only is after it really bad but how making attitudes is really pad so like some may be statistics scary and if they increase and there are a lot of people that are saying if they increase. We're actually going to have a generation That will live past and and everybody's statistic but that will live pasta parents and we're starting to see that you know we're starting to see kids dying and I believe that the US I read that the US is Has the worst mortality which Newport absolutely with children? It does that was. I read that just the other day again. And you've got countries like Japan. That are doing things so differently than we do here. And you have to question why. Why are we making some of these decisions that we make here in the United States so So let me ask you this. So the And you grew up you grew up in the Midwest here in in the USA. And you know my mother grew up in the Midwest. Oh your mother born in Australia okay am I was born in the Midwest. Today's when snicking laid with being sprayed in date was oh my gosh yes and my mom and my sister above passed some cancer and they both were born in the US My mom through that whole era fichus born in fifty seven and then thirty and fifty nine sprayed arsenic and lead everywhere was born in Yup and then her brother was born in thirty nine and he was born with hemisphere so he and there was no hint failure family before we had six. My mother had six brothers with him affiliate. Absolutely and if you want to read a really good book you've probably already read it. But I've been talking about it on the air for a couple of weeks. A moth and the iron lung By Horace Moretti Fourth Moretti. It's an incredible Book about the history of of exactly what you're talking about starting in the eighteen hundreds with the Latin arsenic and the Paris Green and all these pesticides they use to try to stop this these the Gypsy moth that was basically. Just you know eating everything in its path which I mean. It's understandable but they never made the connection between that and polio until many years later and it's just a very fascinating book. Have you read it before? I haven't read it. I've just written it down to rate it. Okay good that information before about the iron lung and the the data in the polio and are now so I just think we need to clean up his parents because out governments are GonNa do it do it and yours is an either so we have to make these decisions and be vigilant about what we bring in our house in everywhere not only food but you know laundry Al under the Kitchen Bochum essential. All those things need to be absolutely how we clean our homes You know I'm going to give a shout out for supernatural. It's a great product all natural oils. That's all I use in my home. I have bottles of it in three different places in my home. It's just cleaning with natural essential oils. And you know you have to pay attention to stuff like that. You really do. Let me ask you this how our stats here in the US. Compare with those in Australia. And other countries around the world we have just behind you in England is a cold Turkey so I would say that class at twenty five I look at it and I got okay one of the stats in that and I look at strayer. And we're just below you. In chronic disease where thirty eight to forty percent in chronic disease you guys have fifty four percent but the rest of the same. Learning disabilities signed asthma allergy and it and All of those types of maladies of the same so there could be two And H cost with asthma allergies so or eighty right. He hates the stats of the sign. And one of the things that everybody is doing. And it's dry. I don't know what they're doing in the US at the moment but we are running out of seed and seedlings. Because everybody's going you know what we can't trust anything anymore. I agreed to take responsibility and we need to take control and plant gardens and I just my heart swells. This is happening because it's something that we talked about like. We have found the bomb here in Australia. And we've been talking about it for five years and you know we're we've just introduced the incredible edible garden to help people do this. You know My grandfather had a huge garden in Iowa. My grandfather in New Zealand had a huge garden. My mom had a little bit of a God and she wasn't a big gardener. But I think we in this generation and younger generation. We need to stop these guns game. We need to start going through not loans. We need to starring Saudi growing fruit trees in our backyards. Absolutely now I couldn't agree more And that's one of the things that I'm going to be working on here in the upcoming weeks. I'm going to plant a garden like my parents had when I grew up in upstate New York. Let me ask you this. You know. You mentioned that pediatric brain tumors are the leading cause of cancer related death among children and adolescents age zero to nineteen years surpassing even leukemia. What are your thoughts? And why do you believe or what do you believe to be the cause of this? I think there's there's you know how people are putting the head in the sand about and no but I think if you look at our agriculture and you look at The fastest growing chemical that is being sprayed and now being associated with non Hodgkin Slim. Find that I think that if not only are since the gut lining the lining of the gut. But it's also opening at blood brain barrier allowing toxins allowing heavy metals to move into that brain and a young brain that is developing and having made toxins movie and as a result of glasses site. We know that it turns out that that Barry and as always end up than any toxin that is in the environment. If you have bio days alive today but by day's Aleve night from olds oils. That have been you know in the frying process and they are grown in and especially if it's genetically modified canola soil Parton. They had grown in a flurry of roundup. And say and then you'll breathing it in. You know they just breathing it in but you I'm consuming it so we'd be and then it's it's on your verges. It's it's everywhere so when you know this information it feels like it's a no brainer. But we need to close the Barry. We need to close the intestinal lining to stop all of these days. Devaivre's saying because order immunity allergies and even You know the day and adhd and learning disabilities and autism. All a result of a Brian. That's become toxic and inflamed and Dr Chrissakes out of The UK has some incredible research on aluminium in the brain of not only autistic children but Alzheimer's. As well yeah and I was in target the other day and I saw a ground up on the shelves and I just wanted to cringe and then when I was driving home. I saw a city worker. That was spraying Which of course was you know? Pesticides are weedkiller. I'm sure it was round up. I've seen someone right in the bill and I just want to cringe. Because it's GonNa when it rains. It goes down into our water. And even if it's not you know then they spray it on on grain and seed. Legume crops before harvest to help the The drying of the plant. In fact you talk about it in your book and you think why in the heck are we still doing this? We know from our history of around the world that these kind of pesticides cause more harm than good right exactly and and as people we need to rise up and make these changes because that's how they up stop being right everywhere that's out asking late stopped and that's how Purify is being stopped. Clip Your House. They know causes damage to the developing brain and utilize right using well. It's another pesticide. Well yes it is indeed by the way little little side note here also has been was made it's made it's manufactured by Monsanto. Dt The atomic bomb other RB G. H. T. hormones that they pump into cows all that and Roundup glyphosate. I mean it's crazy. It's like where do we stop? Where do we draw the line? How do we hold these big corporations accountable for poisoning US? Like how when do it just? It's so frustrating. I don't even I don't even know what to say about it actually But let me ask you this way. Have Great Environment or lawyers are there that are drinking critical jobs and I need them here the strike. Yeah well you know. Let's talk about this for a minute. Change Gears and then we're going to go to break. Can you stay with us for a couple of extra minutes? We go just for station identification and then come back. I can okay all right then. We'll go to break now when I come back. You're not gonNA WANNA miss this. We're GONNA be talking about epilepsy with Cyndi. O'meara stay tuned. Everyone you're listening to one life. Radio does say that soon. Abbas just one block who welcome back to one life radio everyone. This is Bernadette. I Have Cindy Oh Mira on the line. She is an internationally acclaimed nutritionist author and documentary maker and founder of changing habits and educational health and nutrition business. You can find her at changing habits DOT COM dot. Au that's for Australia. We're talking about labs table. Her new book. Stop being elaborate and start making better choices for your table right before we went to break. We were talking about We were going to talk about epilepsy. So can we talk about that right now? Cindy I have a couple of questions for you. Yes let's do that. Let's do it okay. So what are some of the statistics around epilepsy in children? Well in the. Us You have seventy thousand that has It in sixty percent of your population of children between zero and nine teen that A now suffering from epilepsy and Australia. That same age is not far off and around the world so you have to also this is not a normal thing although doctrine attach it. Can we'll make fried tokes about it. The brain cleaning itself which goes back to once again the blood brain barriers already pen. Everything's going in the brain trying to flush but you know sometimes it's flushing one hundred and forty times a day. I really find it. They can have spasms up to one hundred and forty day. There's a fabulous movie out cold. Well it came out in the nineteenth and it's available free on youtube and it's cold. I do no HARM WITH MERYL STREEP. And it's a true story About the Ketogenic Diet and how it helps with epilepsy. Now I know the kids. Genyk DOT. Everybody you've onto it and and They all want to do it. Because you know it's meant to be good for health and here's the issues but I worry because I think people staying on the Ketogenic Diet Unless you have epilepsy by the way unless you medical condition right saying on. That guy is not something that we would have done naturally. Yes we have to keep telling US. In Times of starvation. Not many plants around So that we would never have stayed in. If they were Kaba. Hydrates around we would have consumed them as healthy hunter-gatherer a even hood. So it's very important that unless it is a medical condition that you do You know in an ounce of cases but we have to. Let's see it. It makes me so mad that the DOT is not suggested instead of the medication. Well in the medications don't work. Typically a typical typically ula a typical case scenario. I have a friend. That's going through this right now and It's it's always the drugs the drugs the drugs. She's reaching a point where they're getting to the black block black box drugs which basically means. It's a last resort. And if if the drug the drug has a very it's very What do I WANNA say Deadly it is And just you know. Just get straight to the point and so it's not something you would wanna consider easily and then you then you you You think about things like you know the system and CBD has been known to help with seizures and there's there's so much information out there and the Ketogenic Diet by the way over one hundred years ago was actually prescribed before they had all these drugs to treat epilepsy. But I I would you agree. That diet is heavily responsible for all of the things that we just mentioned right. Yes and when we changed the metabolism of the brain so when you eat carbohydrates it's different metabolism too when you're doing the Ketogenic dot which very like five percent carbohydrates and. I would suggest that you'll friend watch this movie with Meryl Straight because she will probably say very similar scenario what she saves not only with her own child but across the board and Johns Hopkins was leading the way and there was a wonderful Dietitian for many years teaching Parents had to do this but they have to. All my St Louis Children's Hospital 'cause they children are so doped up on medications But you know they're in critical chaos and they having seized out the seizure off the seizure. And it's just it's heartbreaking. I cried through that whole movie and in the US you have one of foundation called the Child Foundation that is not only helping Children with epilepsy but also children with brain chairman. So they've finding they change the metabolism of the brain with Brian Chambers been And that's with Diet then. The brain tumor starts to shrink and many of these kids have to stay on the Diet. Strictly for two years sometimes three. But that's not a what in the wash. No and Dr Dom de Augustino. Who's been on the show several times? Who is a leading scientist that works with NASA He said on the show that after I believe it was about a year of being on the Ketogenic Diet that your brain actually heels and the epilepsy has gone And also you know I had a a a woman who's a friend of a friend of mine on the show. Mitzi is Mr Your Mitzi I always want to St. I think it's mistake. She's from Ohio Anyway. She had a son. Gavin who had Terrell Syndrome and he was healed. His brain was healed from CBD oil. This was several years ago. And so you you. You hear stories like that. And even though they're anecdotal they're very powerful passing many I we have somebody here in Australia. And and she changed. The daughter of his son was having many sages. She also did see the oil and be thirties. Took that child from H-. Wow Yeah. They stole him from a trick to coming down and the police were they. They look the father in the toilet and then I took child and you know we can't. I don't know you know it's like it's Heb of care but this young child. Yes he loves to WIPE THE CHEESE. He had nine more than they were worried about. Underway Lose packed with parents. Stand up for children. We have to be their advocate. We have to look at the food that they can seeming. We should be growing that we talked about before we should be looking at the food that we are having. We should have the education that tells us what's right. What's wrong because marketing is very slick and marketing is starting to change people's buying patents. Though I gave up television two years ago I just said no more. I'm not watching a advertising and not being part of this human experiment and so I just gave it up and what a wonderful freedom because there were so many other things that we can choose to do. Yeah well that story that you just told about The boy that was removed taken away from his parents. That should make everybody's hair stand on end hearing stuff like that I don't even know what to say. I'm I'm I'm I'm I really don't even know what to say. So many cases like that there is only one. Yeah and we We have Dean bartell who was on the show many many years ago this was at the very beginning of CB when Charlotte's web was one of our sponsors For several years and we we were talking about just talking about CBD oil and all the healing effects and the fact that we do have an endo cannabinoid system and and how powerful cannabis is Or NC both to treat so many things out there and so many children suffer. And I know that they would win. The Farm Act was passed here in Texas. It does allow parents to have more freedom to treat their children with a cannabis and CD oil but it was. It was pretty crazy for a while so at least we. Are you know getting somewhere with this? As people sit down and talk about it and share their stories and we all get more power through education. So Cindy it's always great to have you on the show and other shoutout for your Book Lab Table Stopping Elaborate. Start making better choices For Your Table. You can get her book at changing. How HABITS DOT COM at our? Excuse me dot a hugh. I get really emotional when I talk about this stuff. Can you tell because you just you want to put your head against a brick wall? And just wonder what our government said doing and after he's manufacturers in that chemical and his tell the parents to let parents know that we have power and we can change this. Yeah absolutely through education Thank you so much for jumping on the air with us today. Cindy we'll talk to you soon and Go back to bed right.

I know we're on this lockdown and everyone you know in panic due to panic and fear do the media and I think it creates more problems for us The first thing we need to do is get out. I know there's a six feet I get it. The get that sunshine get that Vitamin D. That natural vitamin D the Sunshine Vitamin what they call it an absolute. It's so good for your skin And it disinfects our body it. Just you definitely need that so you know. I don't want people to think that they have to be indoors and close all the windows. And he's too dark like no pressing. The best form of Vitamin D. Like you said as sunshine and let me put this out there real quick and I'll let you continue. Y- your your life. Expense expectancy is decreased by ten years. If you do not have proper levels of vitamin D consistently ten years you can take off your life. That's how important it is. No it's amazing. It's amazing I was just out there yesterday on the trail and just to have that done hit my skin and just I was. I was stepping in the water. There's a little lake By the park I was at. It was amazing. I was skipping rocks. Like I don't care what fun out there it was it was it was so peaceful. Bernadette like I need more of that always in the hustle and bustle yes. I haven't yet go ahead. I'm so excited about skipping rocks. I'm having all these memories. I haven't skipped rock since I was a kid. I'm going to skip some rocks. Here soon was never very good at it. I suck at it when you get that. One out of twenty ended skipped like six times throw forty million exactly of Vienna but other than The Vitamin D. Okay I'll go back to the vitamins but as far as actually running jogging. I know people have most people have pets going on and run with them or Power Walk Swimming biking Even a client being Hiking anything to you. Know build a boost your immune system you know in addition to vitamin D vitamin C. VITAMIN E. You know A lot of times people are just depending on food and getting that the vitamins. I think from food and young and get that your firm that you know so especially during this time it helps you against cold and flu viruses. So it's really really important and there's actually one thing I'm taking its apple CIDER. Vinegar drink that take three times a day now because I had a little bit of a sore throat The last week and thank God. I didn't have anything else. But it's it's vitamin C crystals and it's apple CIDER. Vinegar and Tim Elaine. Salt and did A little squeeze of like half of a lemon and eight to eight to sixteen ounces of water. I do that three times a day. Bernadette I have felt so great and I'm still working out. Yeah I'm I'm still sprinting. You can do bodyweight exercises you know God we have TV. We've got on our phone briefing that you can look up you know. Don't don't let it be a reason on your on lockdown. Your mind is on lockdown. You can't do anything absolutely well like I. When I opened the show I talked about the burpee. The burpee is one of the best exercises out there. I used to do one hundred a day. I'm bringing it back. I'm bringing the day burpee back because it it works out. I love that Herbie's are now but you don't do them all at once right. You could do like ten and in fact a guy massacre who we need to get him on the show. Espn here in a while. But one of our dear friends here on one life radio said that if you can't it's typical you if you're doing them properly you shouldn't be able to do more than ten or eleven at a time without resting so you do ten you throughout the whole day ten here ten there. You know doom in the middle of the parking lot. Who CARES WE'RE ALL? We're all doing crazy stuff that's been there at some mountain climbers complex. Yak. That whatever. Yeah you know. Let's I wanted to ask what I know we're we're short on time but I wanted to add one more thing that's really really important is just during this time especially with all this negativity out there. All of these negative emotions with the media with the fear with the panic. We you know with this grocery stores running out of things and people are. They're just they're in fear the living in fear of the majority you know. Yeah I think what really really important is just staying connected with people with your friends with your family You know don't try to avoid people you know. I mean just you know that sixty get interactive people. Yeah I couldn't agree more. It makes people feel good. It'll make you feel good. You kind spread love it.

Biters: The Walking Dead Podcast with Dianne

1:53:17 hr | 9 months ago

Alaska/The Wrong End of A Telescope

"The. Hey everybody. This is Diane Welcome to Biters, and this is now and I really really can't wait for the election. So I don't have to watch walking dead political advertisements. Yeah. Keep my zombies apolitical. Yeah I know I've I'm sure there's people screaming at us do the same thing. That's why we're trying to shift it all over to the real housewives of Alaska we are. We are and plus that that advertisement just was not that great. So. You know I watched it because Diana. So to to us is a private message and yell. At least they can skip them. When I record the episode on Sling, I can skip the national political advertisements for some reason, it does not let you skip local political advertisements and I will tell you even the guy that I'm voting for like just skip your advertisement since we're both political, I've got to tell you today. So yesterday I. got like four get like four six political tax day all freaking day yesterday I got one and I was like, are you kidding me? I haven't donated to your campaign at? Yes. I have not only donated yours but I'd donate to Jamie Harrison I donate donate to get Metro detriot and Don't. Tell me I haven't donate. Ions it like right after voted I got. A. I got another tax just texted back. I just voted for you. I know nobody monitors those I know that it's just a Bot sending those out, but I was so mad. Yeah I'm I'm ready for it to be over. The thing is as we all know regardless of what side of the fence we're on it's not gonna be over on Tuesday night now it's not. Even locally. It might. It might although I don't know I mean there's so much early voting and so much absentee voting I dunno, it's GonNa be crazy. Yeah. I think we're one of those states that doesn't start counting. Melons, until the day of the election while and honest to God, I had my total freak out today and I'm so glad you sent that linked me. Because I was fairly sure. I. Was not going to be able to vote because I was fairly sure my Cova test was going to be positive today. Year positivity in the negative. With the Abbott Test, which is not the most reliable house in the world, but we won't even go there but you are feeling better. So I, you know like I said like I'm GonNa say seventy five percent better. There's still some lingering sometimes that I'm not one hundred percent I don't feel great. I'm better. But Anyway we're here to talk about that. Although I, I think you would like to considering how much you absolutely hated. One of the episodes are about the podcast about. So once again, we have double duty, we are talking about fear of the walking dead season six episode three and titled Alaska. And then we are also talking about the walking dead world beyond a season one episode for the wrong end of a telescope. And I am going to say that I'm going to start my numbers out with numbers having to do with walking dead world beyond. That is forty six minutes and nine seconds of my life I will never get back. Yet an hour and sixteen minutes for me because of the all the advertising, the phone slaying. Of. Do, have numbers for last week. So welcome to the club, which was the fear the walking dead episode was one point five, five, million views. It was down from one point five, nine, the episode before. That tiger in the lamb was one point zero, four, million views, and that was steady from the previous week. It was the same number of us that they had for episode two. So. Not to put you on the spot but how is that in comparison? Are we top ten Nielsen or we top twenty? I couldn't even tell ya I I honestly I you know I have started. Looking. At these, looking for these numbers on their wikipedia pages because that's where I can find the same day updates. Site that I was using. Probably nine months ago. So pre cove Ed. Really. Started to be unreliable about thera- ratings about having numbers up it's a site called TV by the numbers. So I just started going to the wikipedia page and at least getting the previous episodes numbers for same day views I mean I would say that that. AMC probably still has some of the higher numbers for broadcast television, but ED. Actually. They're not broadcast cable. Excuse me. But you know I mean you've got to remember and I and you know we don't have to go into the. You know they're not. Talking about people who DVR, and they're not talking about people who watch it offline like you and I do. Because we know that but I mean you've got to remember we're we're we've gone from. A series that at its height was getting. Seventeen twenty million same debuts. Now we're down in the one millions. Yeah granted I mean these are both option offshoots and If you're has been uneven at best and Oh, my God, the world beyond is getting worse and were. Not Getting much better. It's getting worse. and. We actually just for all of you out there. We decided to start with the world beyond tonight. So we end on a high note. I will say one thing though that I ran across while I was looking for stuff just having to do with fear. How did I missed the ALATHEA TAPES I'm glad there's silence on the other end because. You miss them as well. Okay. So in two thousand and nineteen, they did a six part series that I believe it was shown on AMC but it's also on Youtube and you can watch all of them on Youtube and it was six interviews that. So it's actually six of her tapes. And so I had them playing tonight while I was prepping for the podcast and they were really good. We'll thanks for texting me. You can watch them later we don't have to break them down piece by piece I was just like, how did I actually miss this I feel like a really lousy podcast or that that's the. Feel like they didn't. Put as much advertisements as they did the red machete they did not I don't think they did and there was one that I especially liked like if you go back and watch them and you'll don't WanNa, watch them all and they're not very long. But. There was one that I really liked. Call J. C. N. Carl. So I they were just they were very good. I enjoyed them very much. So if you all out there in biters, land have not seen this. If you like Al and if you like the idea of Al Tapes, they are worth your time. That's funny on this episode I was just thinking I'm so over videotaping everything go. So is Eric Kane that was one of the things he said in his review. Along with a lot of other things. So you know again because we're kind of off kilter, we're going to do featured cast. We'll talk a little bit about the news do some housewives updates that you haven't already gotten in the first ten minutes of the episode. And And then we'll go into world beyond. So who's our future cast? are featured. CAST is you know as honey you know or is Sherry but in real life, her name is Christine Lee Staff. And I'm so happy she's back. Oh my gosh. Yeah we'll go there. Definitely. If you're thinking her last name sounds familiar. Yes she is related to the supermodel. Crews name escapes me now. I know I was wondering. In. She really is she her daughter and I was like, Oh, no, they're. Just one the EVANGELISTA little bit and I keep wanting to call. Christine. Linda and I was couldn't remember Linda's name because I wanted to call her Christine. So she got her start off Broadway and actually last year she did something. Really amazing that I really wish I would have been able to see. And One of my dog's whining. Minor trying to play. So it's going to be a dog centric episode. She did he play in New York called Mistrial S. T.? R. I a. l.. And it was basically about The impact and the way that women are treated in the judicial system when they are victims of sexual assault. Oh Wow that sounds good. Yeah. So some pretty pretty heavy that sounds really cheery. Well and of course like so if you go to her instagram or any for social media's anything, she's on facebook I actually. I actually, Oh, she does have a twitter. At Sea Evangelista. but she seems like it's the funnest person for one. She's super fashionable and she looks like she likes to travel and. We'll get into like her dog rescuing you're in a minute. That's so cool. She looks like probably the pandemic her heart because one she was doing stage theatre at the time. And so that got shut down and of course, she was in New York City. So they were one of the first to really get. Right. And then to eight, you know her being kind of such an extrovert it it sort of put the Kibosh on that. So she has a little Chihuahua terrier. You'll see in some of her pictures named buddy he's adorable but she also started fostering another what appears to be a Chihuahua terrier. Also have a name for it but She's fostering him from the Bell Foundation. so and she she does She seems to do a lot for animal charities show her other. Charity. Choice is Veterinarians International. he's very concerned about elephants. She seems to like elephants a lot. Her father was a New York firefighter. Her mother is a wasn't R.. N. And now is a nurse practitioner? Her grandmother was a World War Two navy nurse. Oh. That's really cool. Yeah. That's cool. But I just. I loved all she does have a TIKTOK. Of course she. I couldn't find it but she re posted something to her instagram page from her TIKTOK and I still couldn't find it but it was of her nightly skin routine. So I will have to search harder for her talk only goodness while you'll have to share that with you find it because I definitely need a nightly skin routine. And she's got gorgeous skin I mean. Her, and her cousin apparently looks run in her family So she also plays guitar. her first professional acting job onscreen she. She doesn't say how old she was, but she was a minor and she was featured a featured extra. Playing a hit and run victim on the show Third Watch on NBC. And her mom had actually taken her. To and from the set on the way home from. They got pulled over and of course, she's covered in fake blood and I guess the police officer was not very mused until he actually learned you know that it was fake blood and she just came from a television show. How Funny I was like buying own her mother never took her to a job again. I'm. One of the things she loves more, about. Doing. Television and movies than she does doing doing theater is when the money Oh sure. To craft services. And three, she can bring your dog to set a that's Kinda cool. After man heart. So one of the things that she has been in lately that it seems like she was in. During the Times that she was on the walking dead prime as. Sherry, and of course, now was a TV show called the arrangement. I was reading about that at it got really I mean the people who commented on page were spoke very highly of it and someone was like campus be picked up by another another. God, my brain is not working network. Because apparently, it's not made it past two seasons in the person who who commented really liked it. Yes. So I actually think this was I swear it was on like lifetime or something, but it looked really really good and the premise behind it is And of course, the comparisons have been made to at a certain scientology relationship it. Actress that is hired to be the wife. A Fake Hollywood star very interesting. Yes and so they get married and of course, it's an arranged marriage. Definitely going to have to talk about scientology. Definitely. Right so you know the arrangement was on the list and I don't know where it went on the list because I suddenly just rediscovered it having done. The deep dive. Deep dive. Yeah, yeah so. She's been a time of things that I have seen She has done a couple of episodes of law and order. Yes. She was on two episodes of six six, six Park Avenue which I absolutely loved season one, six Park Avenue. She was. Kind of a recurring role on Chicago fire. Lucky seven. And she was also in the movie the intern. If you remember that one that was with Robert Deniro and Anne hathaway no neighbors. NOPE didn't watch it. So she has been around for a while and she's done quite a bit and I really think the arrangement probably just got bumped back up on the. Watch list. Very high marks for her performance. Yeah and you know like I said, I absolutely loved her instagram posts she. It like I just want her wardrobe. Will you know I keep saying that there's less but oh, my God, I can't keep up with the list so I actually need to start writing the list Dour. So, Steph doesn't fall off and get forgotten I. You know I'm going to say again I do think that some sort of like zoom into the temple is going to have to be on the list at some point. So I I wanted to see something about Christina. because. I found kind of an interesting little connection with her. Since she was born in new. York she went to a called the Herbert Berghof School of acting. So I looked that up because I was curious to know what the history was there it was founded in nineteen forty-five by Herbert Berghof. and. There was a very famous woman named. Haagen who taught there? I actually took I don't know if you'll remember this was right around the time. That I was a junior senior in high school and I actually took an acting workshop from a woman who had studied with Haagen. I don't remember that I know little teeny tiny like total tiny connection there but it was kind of cool and then I. Started to kind of go down the list of people who are notable alums of the school f Murray Abraham who played Soli- airy in Mozart or Amadeus. You probably didn't watch. Probably, way too young for that movie. I, know. Don't. Actually ever seen it. It was a really good movie. I mean we've. Totally, never ever mean totally want to do something that is not Zombie or horror related at all Sunday we may have to do is because it was a great film, it would be interesting to see how it's aged. but also like classical music. So it was a phenomenal movie but also like a debbie, Allen from fame famous choreographer. And BANCROFT CAMAS Bergen Stockard channing the list of people who Graduated from this particular school of acting was incredible. So I thought that was an interesting little find about Christine Evangelista. That is cool. Yeah. And she has a voiceover in one video game. which a video game called Wakes American nightmare. A voiceover but I did not read the name of the video games. So I had to laugh because when they posted about the covert surge in Alaska and my. At basically complete. Removal from social interaction now because of my job. One of my friends was like you need a video game console. And I was like Nah. I'm just GONNA start podcasting. Besides you don't need a video game console, you can play most video games on your PC. I don't have a PC I. have a Mac. Thank you very much. On your computer. Oh and you know what? She's an ambassador for vets international. That's very cool. So she seems like she would pretty much be are Kinda girl definitely. Very good. Anything else you WANNA say about her other than yeah honey. We're so glad you're back. We are yes. I don't have anything else. I'm just excited to see where she has been entire time. Well. So have a little bit about that and whispers corner good which takes us right into whispers corner. So the first thing that I found when I was looking at news tonight is that Net netflix finally put up a Selena trailer. And they finally gave us a date. December fourth is when it's going to drop on Netflix eggs. I think I heard that I said that on one of our premium podcasts. Okay. I didn't remember date but I did watch the trailer and Christian Sorrento's looks wonderful and Brian was so funny he responded to the Lincoln he was like well Lou. Let's see there was an interview with a guy named Nick Venable at cinema blend, and he talked a little bit with both Colin Domingo and Maggie Grace. And Magris talked about the roof seen and she said that they did it in one take. And she completely credits Colman Domingo and said that he was such a delight to work with as the director. So that that was really cool and then she actually referred to the whole storyline about Al and Isabel as the greatest story she never told. Oh. Yeah, and so I mean how much of that is the greatest story she never filled Dwight in because it seemed like he knew a little bit about the beer lady but not much. Yeah I find it weird that he like the name was the beer later rate I can't remember Eric Cantor Paul Tahseen. It was like, what is there? With And it's only been since the two knuckleheads took over. Yes because like he's they pointed out. Earlier in the show season two, I think they were actually like. Alcohol stranded Madison a good one on at the hotel remember. Yeah. Well so I'm also wondering if the greatest stories you never told was also just a reference to this is the end of the story for Isabel and L.. He. Think I don't know I'm not I'm not sure. I have questions. All right. So the next thing in the whispers corner and I, you know I'm sorry Steve completely ruined may I will forever think of Andrew Chambliss and the Goldberg Burgas the tomb to Nakal I can't have them as anything else. So they actually said in an interview with entertainment weekly that they felt like Sheri's return was Dwight's quote Karmic reward for his selflessness toward Al and they also, and this goes to what you were talking about their. They also say they're going to give us some Sherry back story in a couple of weeks. Okay and there is an upcoming episode entitled Honey So. Oh Yeah I remember that because I figured that was the upset we were to get back in right? So. There was the there was a Paul Tassie article you know it was. I, don't know. It basically sounds like he really liked fear. He, there wasn't anything revelatory in his. In his review of the episode although he did say at the end, I'm actually looking forward to the show weekly. Now it's pretty wild. Okay between that and I think it was Hannah who said it's easily the best episode and the last two seasons like well, that's not really kind of high praise. I do have to say I was really shocked when Diana and Steve were like you're GonNa WanNa Watch this one, a second time and I was like. What You had just vowed to only do one watch through on each and I kept my vow with world beyond because it was horrible. Okay. cinema blend suggests that the as are intentionally and this goes to the end credit scene in world beyond. So if you were dumb like me and you turn it off before the end credit scene, go back and watch before you listen to this little bit of news but Cinnamon Cinema Blend said that they think that the as are people who are intentionally turned into walkers for research purposes. Thomas o'meara is the reason that I know about the end credit scenes because he was like the explain the as and the BS, and I was like what and then I said all right I feel like they explained. Sort of explain the as they made a reference to the as and he was like, well what I take it is at an as freshly bitten and a be as simple. As for experiments and visa for. US. So his take a little different than the taken cinema blind. But I. Thought that that was an interesting taken I did tell him I would credit him for that well in comic Dot Com. Talks about after falsely claiming she had an a ready for pickup shells, the pilot I have a be not an a I never had an a she ben urges the helicopter to descend and pick rick up who is hurt but strong. And so that kind of goes with the. As our terminal and bees are not. You know yeah. Let's see. Totally kind of Grim News not R- sort series related, but not series related an asking a Georgia appeals court to overturn the eight point six, million dollar verdicts in favor of John Byrne occurs family remember the stunt man who was killed. So. That is an article that was just a couple of days old. Interestingly enough and I thought this was really Hanky. Who knows I mean I just kind of fell victim to not great reporting here of locally who knows how accurate this is but the article actually said that burn occurs contract was dated the day that he was in the hospital in a coma. So they're definitely using that as evidence in this in to fight the appeal basically. Ha-. Like just misstated, do they think So, there are. There seemed to be the allegation and I am heavily reading into it that have his signature was falsified or the date was falsified and. I am heavily reading into it that was not explicitly stated I mean that's a from what I take of it is that that is their allegation but I mean that's just one of those things where. You know you right the eighteenth instead of the sixteenth or what you know. Yeah. Let's see Eric Kane this is the last thing I've got in whispers corner. So he said it feared the walking dead consent continues to be better than last season and better than most of season four. He did point out a continuity error that I. I didn't really pay attention to you, but it really makes a Lotta Sense. He pointed out that most of the zombies in the building looked like they had been dead for years. You know I think that's kind of been one of my complaint all along except for the opposite is that. Like. I would think. ZOMBIES that have been exposed to the elements for you know years upon years and years that they I mean they were pretty much be completely desiccated by now they wouldn't be up shambling around. So he has the opposite observation of these people just died a week ago. Right and that's three years and they explicitly said in the episode that these people were sick with the plague had just started dying. So right and the girl even pointed out, she's like I didn't even recognize them anymore right and I mean, how did they decay that fast? Yeah maybe like the plague boils Oh you know yeah never seen the Bouba plug. So look to that have some feedback about that. But know knock would have never seen it. The other thing God bless Eric Kane and never thought I would say those words but. I agree ditch the walkie talkies, where are all the batteries coming from? Let's get over the magical reach of the walkie talkies Let's get over batteries and flashlights and an endless supply of antibiotics. 'cause yeah, I was actually thinking. About. The the walkie talkies when they were using them in the building and that's like a super concrete building and I usually don't even get cell service in the rinky dinky con concrete buildings around our rights. When I ricky dicky we don't I don't even think we have a building that is over twelve floors in Juneau so. That wonder. Federal Building. And people were talking about the State Capitol here. All right anything else in, and for whisperers corner. I don't think. So quick updates in housewives housekeeping we did podcast our second code of the real housewives of Alaska. We podcast about the movie, the Social Dilemma, which if you have not watched it. Prepare to. Be horrified about social media. I was horrified. I was more more horrified than Moreno was but. I will say that I knew a fair amount of it, but there was still stuff with where I was like what? We talked about it earlier. This housewife is covert negative. I still feel like warmed over dog do but I am Cova negative right now so. But people masks six feet back covers your nose Washer Freakin hands, respect other people and put your mask on when you go somewhere public. This is this is not a joke. I'm so tired of this and I'm so over people being so disrespectful God and like we're in that that fall surge to that they talked about. Yeah. I mean our our cases and I. Again I have to preface this by saying, we have like we're the third least populated state and were enormous where like two-thirds of sides of the United States. So we can socially distance pretty well but. We have a low population, but we we running around three hundred and some odd case in new cases a day and yesterday day before respect up to over five hundred, which is I mean that's insane for us for us. Yeah. That's insane. And I've got to tell you. We've had a number of positives in my setting. I've had to known exposures in the last three weeks one of which I found out about today. So I'm really super not excited that I'm symptomatic because the test that I got today was a rapid testing they're not great. Yeah. So yeah. Sixty back. You know I kind of felt like there was a lot of other stuff that I had to talk about and housewives, and of course now, I, don't have anything except to say that we're still waiting for our. Our. Tunesfeed for our new podcast to get up and running, which is super frustrating. Guest that takes us into our goods, bads and uglies about fear actually no, it takes us only God beyond zone -combobulate. Right, we are going to do beyond I and it doesn't go to good fats an ugly I it goes to our ratings are title are writer director and then our goods bathroom. Thing, you remembered all that I was just about to go into good and uglies. Okay. So what was your rating 'cause? Your rating was obviously a far better than mine was. Mine was three point, eight, five cans of Sardines. Girl's gotTA. Have Her Omega threes which I thought was probably one of the funniest lines and the whole episode. Well, look I'm not I. I like Sardines like everyone else like there's like starting in your Caesar. Salad ground. Ice scissor anchovies. I like I like you don't want sardines. Oil like everybody else. But. It's protein. It's fat. It's food. It's. Probably, expired but not as bad as videos. The LASAGNA already or whatever. Yeah No. So I I don't know if you've listened to him for the head I listen to and I agree with Steve I think they would all be dead from eating the LASAGNA and I'm even more firmly convinced that after their hall of the school. Shelves. But. And maybe that's the way it will end and is it can. Season Two because I'm kind of hoping, it's not confirmed for season two. I think it's just to season I? Know it's just two seasons but had they actually started creating season two yet? Probably. As much as anything else in. All right. So I am giving one point three purple haired zombies out of five. It was awful and so the title was the wrong end of a telescope and yeah that's how I felt after this episode. Well. It was. All. Like I'm kind of light headed. Where did that come from my God? I'm just influenced heavily by in for the head, but I was listening to today Anna Stephen Dan was like about last week's okay it was terrible moving on. And that's the way I felt about this one I mean last week I was like okay. So there was a little bit of redeeming I mean it was all right. I like stylists back story. It was alright. No. Heck me think grading on me so much anymore I mean Chablis call rewind. No, she had more than that actually. We'll get into. Title I. I think I might know what they were getting at the looking at something looking at through a telescope at the wrong end makes. Everything sort of far away but myopic. But I don't know how that translates to the show. At you know, were they looking at high school through the wrong end of the telescope? I mean there was that whole conversation between Iris and Silas of about while they do even realize what they had I mean they had this thing that they had and he looked at her in central. Didn't you have all of that except I don't even remember what the exception was but he basically pointed out she had everything that she listened except one thing. Okay. And you know the same could be said for the hope and huck thing when help us having her flashbacks to Redada how you know Okay. All right. All right very quickly. So our writer and I'm sure I'm GonNa Miss Pronounce the name incorrectly but I'm going to go with aid. Sinead daily. Dolly DIY. wrote an episode of thirty. Which I actually really liked the TV series that they did around. Dirty John. I love the podcast and love the TV series. I love the second season of the TV series. So it's Kinda proof that this writer actually is capable of doing decent writing 'cause this certainly was not. Also written for Dirk gently as holistic detective agency, which I know if I were really good Geek I would like and have read Douglas Adams and I have not. So there we are. And she is has been a producer on all all four episodes thus far of world beyond. And then our director is a woman named Rachel Liederman. She has eleven director credits. The one that I will highlight other than this one is she directed an episode of the man in the high, castle. Ou, which actually I was really into the first season and then I kind of fell off. So it's another one that's on the list, but it's made its way rapidly down the list just because they'll assist to long. Okay and the new show, not the new ish moving lost in space. Was Amazing I loved it and. They made Parker Posey, the bad guy and I love. Parker. Posey. Parker Posey to Parker Posey was Dr Smith, and so I like you, you know you had me at Parker? Posey. But they did a really good job with the new lost in space and I really hope it gets. Another season it's probably. Not. Going to never did because the last one was in two, thousand, eighteen but. I duNNo. Resurrected thanks get dropped because of covid whatever. I will tell you that I will forever think of Parker Posey in the. Movie, best in show. raving at the person about the last busy be the. Toy. And having had a Wimereux honor. Yeah. Ear Inn, clock watchers, and House of ES. which if you WANNA really messed up movie watch house of Yes. Okay. Without on the list to somewhere on the list. All right now let's get into our goods bats ugly 'cause I WANNA. Put this turn to bed. Generally, not what I do with. How can I want to flush the stirred? There you go. Do you WANNA. Go first sure 'cause our goods are actually the same. We actually go without slept while we were finishing up prepping. So it was the end credit scene and I. Liked it. While because it was the only watchable thing in the whole episode. Was the most interesting thing. Yes, and I liked it because it did expand a little bit on the universe and gave us some information that we've been looking for. I thought it was very interesting to see hope and Iris's Dad in that photo and that that doctor who was the recently turned Zombie was clearly in the photo as well I wanted the woman to stop eating her giant Sandwich I thought she was rude. I. was. It. Funny. Of, course, I think we all probably eat at our jobs like we've eaten are workstations, our desks or whatever every once in a while. But like it's always funny when you see like someone who's like a medical examiner or and. Veroljub or something like that eating you know while they're doing this like horribly grotesque task. Yeah you know I mean I I'M NOT GONNA lie I've gone from a code to lunch I've gone from. Opening up and abscesses and draining it once I mean. Yeah, you just get accustomed I thought she was Kinda rude and I thought the sandwich was really outside. I. Do think that the. The conversation that it brought up around as and BS and what they mean I thought that was really interesting and I hope they expand a little bit on that well, and just like all of the science that they were doing it was like, okay, we were taking Oh my God were science egg. Taking. Basically a spinal tap and Oh. What's the stuff in blood? It's a blood product. I know they said something I. You know. Yeah. So but I just loved that like all of these crazy experiments they were doing like. You know probably it sounded like right as they returning and then long after they've termed in yeah. It does sound like they're kind of tracking the deterioration. Plasma. Plasma yes. Yeah so I I was just I was like I more science please. Could we just mister wizard the hell out of that? which by the way Thomas o'meara was like. Mister Wizard do. So. I don't know if you know the the phrase due to you. Even science comes from Neil degrasse Tyson and I've used that with people who for like when I'm insulted people online and Science as an verb like you obviously don't know who Neil degrasse Tyson as. He had the TIC TAC by the way Oh. Okay. You may have just won me over. We're all GONNA take I was so aggrieved when I had to move from my space to facebook and then it was okay with twitter and now I'm like okay. Take talks words at Oh my God so good about instagram. Yeah. I mean instagram doesn't really move me no like I love looking at people's really cool pictures but it really I I, need the story I need the science. Yeah. All. Right. What was your bad? Or did you have more to say about your good because now are was the same thing test subject a zero to and I did like actually the fact that they use t s as yes. I thought that was a nice call back to. To season one. Yeah So season one of the original series. Okay. Now sorry, you're bad. Go ahead. You don't WanNa go with your bag. Oh, I'll go with my bad. I thought that the imagined dance and like the illustration of the dance and like them being surrounded by the dancing couples it was dom. Dumb. Dom Dom. I was okay with it I just thought it was lame. I was like really this is the psalm be apocalypse we get. This is not on the apocalypse we deserve. No I was totally not having it I mean. Compare, and contrast that to Shane kneecapping Otis. Really. Okay. But this one's geared towards like teenage. Wow now. I'm just I am not having I am not having. So this week they are taking my walking dead and they are deriving into the ground more than the two knuckleheads ever did. All I have to say is beer bottle balloon. Thank you Steven. You can tell I listen to their episode today. That's funny. All right you're bad. My bad is like I. Know that I probably keep harping on this, but they keep doing it. I'm going to keep harping on it apparently everybody in his army apocalypse is slightly deaf. Because in the episode where you know the the guy, the first episode of fear where the Guy Hooks up to the water tower and. Well now, we can have this wolf drag a walker through the hallway. ICE FROM US and we here none. Okay, I totally thought of you and Bella and Romeo because I was like. Romeo. Romeo was enormous. So for those of you don't know what we're talking about is. I had taken my mom's Cocker Spaniel and my brother's. rottweiler. To the frozen over lake of our glacier and I don't let him. I was letting them run around. and. I mean big open space. This is a frozen lake. This isn't like there was like a ton of woods right around the area he and I turn my back on them for just a moment and when I turn back around, I'm like Oh that is a really pretty that's not a dog. Ao meal was black and Romney was. Giant Timber Wolf, and apparently quite well known in Juneau. Yes. There's actually many books written about him. You can look up his wikipedia page but. He. had been known to play with a lot of the dogs in the area he'd becomes somewhat domesticated. And he also was known to have carted off a couple of smaller dogs. Which Bella was a cocker Spaniel Ella was a cocker Spaniel, and so she thought she was going to make this awesome new friend and so she goes running up to Romeo and gets nose to nose with him, and you could just see that sinking look come over and she sat down and was like I have made a huge mistake and as poor dog did not know what to do and like. It's one of those things where it's like, do I run or to say do I run our do it I'm going to run and she's just off and. Romeo bless his heart. Has a Predator's instinct and he reached out at he like he took one step forward. She was running for dear life and he was so enormous. He took one step forward with his giant Pau and snatched her out of the air and he shook her. and. Then spit her out because. Hawker Spaniel does not taste good. And so she comes Bolton over towards me and she's got four little bruises on the underside of her he did not break her skin. I don't know if it was just a like a playful chic in his opinion or if it was a warning or what but. So at the time, this was all going on I'm not just standing there staring at this I am running towards this giant wolf and this little cocker Spaniel and use jaws full speed, and the rottweiler is right on my heels. And I am thinking I don't have a stick I don't have. What am I, GonNa do reason with him. But I I didn't have to because by the time I. Got there. He had spent her out just trotted away. So. Yeah. That was that was our encounter with the wolf and from then on she really didn't leave my side so. Tara. Listen. And was Romeo is quiet as the wolf in the high school in the world beyond he was even more so quiet because like I said I turned around and when I turn back around, he had appeared out of nowhere completely silently. like there were no trees that he came out from behind. We were in the middle of a frozen lake and I mean, it was literally like he just like. appeared out of thin air at like I. Know I thought it was just another dog that was out there playing and it was like. Yeah. No, that's a really really big dog vents probably not a dog. So yeah the wolf in this episode was much much smaller but he definitely he at least he wasn't didn't look like a Husky. A lot of a lot of shows will try and save money and they'll stick a Husky onscreen and that's why when I walk my Husky people thinks the huskies they people think that they're wolves they're not. Because wolves are enormous. Although Dexter does look like a coyote. Can see that yeah. Yeah. So my bad was like we are supposed to be on high alert in Zombie Apocalypse and people just keep letting these things slip by him. I'm just gonNA keep pointing out. They'RE GONNA put into this show I'm going to gripe about it. So what was your ugly? So, my ugly was. It. Just did not hold my attention and I mean between being not even remotely interested in the trajectory of any of these characters including silence including Felix. So I actually have been really interested in up to this point. Again with some of the shots being so dark, it was hard to follow Aden heritage follow it. I I was totally not into it. Totally not into it. I just there was nothing about it that I liked I really, I wanted to like really care about the interactions between hope and her dad and I, was like, no, I just feel manipulated. The I I'm Kinda. Right there with you in that like I'm having a really hard time carrying about any of the characters. Except there at the end I'm like, okay like we need to speed this along and get to wherever their dad is and Go get some more interesting subject matter. You know. Are they even GonNa get him by the end of the season. I hope so oh Honest Guy. So I got to tell you I, really would not be watching this. If I were not podcasting it, I wouldn't let me not be trying to pay such close attention because I will agree with you that I do have a hard time paying attention to it. Sometimes I didn't I wouldn't even be the. I'm. I'm trying to pay attention to it. I literally would not be watching it like after this I would piece out. Really really and I never thought. I. Would say that about a walking dead prop property but no, I don't need this. We've totally said that about the walking dead and. You know. So we've definitely said Oh my God if I were podcasting and I'm not sure what this one, I'm dead serious. Yeah. They are trying to reach demographic that is not you and I. Somebody talked me off the last. Of the only other thing that I really had in my writing career because I really didn't write very much down because they really didn't enjoy it was. Silence kind of losing. It was good. We. We saw the he was being strangled by somebody I don't know if that was. Was Strangling somebody know there was a scene where he asked? Around his throat okay. Is the quiz to the question is do you think it was his dad? Oh. Yeah. Yeah. I mean a totally plays in with what you talked about last week in terms of you know all of this stuff is from his grandparents, all of the recorded staff. You know he very quickly says, no, I don't Miss. My mom at all never really mentioned dad I mean, it totally plays into it. We by the way, he is carrying a frequent walkman with a cassette and that's ridiculous. Batteries, batteries, Barry's. One of the one of the things that he the whispers that he heard was even his own mom testified against and right now. But we didn't get to my ugly Oh. Gosh I'm so sorry. I'm so flush this tour. I talked about my. In. The respect that it was my ugly ugly actually was the both and it was a good ugly. One and I think I've mentioned this on. An episode of another walking dead show where I like that these people are out in nature and nature as a huge threat you know I mean. Drop somebody off in the wilderness with backpack and you're gonNA learn just how hard life is when it comes to you know shelter warmth, food, freshwater animals you know so. I mean for goodness sakes I have you know life threatening animals that trump through my yard all of the time of course, you're going to run into something that continue to throw it out a look look at that. Did you see that one video last week the week before of the guy in California Colorado? Getting stopped by the The Cougar, yeah yes. So that's I. I love when they add the the true-to-life element of that there are more life threatening things out there than walkers and especially now that we're ten years in and we don't have this large herds. Actually does bring another great that I have about this? So the. The. Walkers Burnett. Scary. There is nothing about them than the scary the whole door. Dodging under the Walker I'm like really. Really. Very, very bad do not recommend. Funny. So, in my running pary. I told you. So I knew at least hope was adopted but we found out that hope and. That was a good reveal. I did feel like that explained a lot. Yeah and in in that brief moment where I didn't feel resembling manipulated by the portrayal of the relationship between father and daughter I thought it was Kinda cool that he was basically like I never loved never never wanted a different mother Iris Aura different hope you know. Yeah. So, what is it? What am I gripe was? Why did Felix pick the lock like off Right. The glass that was on the door was not like the glass on the gymnasium. Over it it was just regular glass. So funny. One of my other things was. The iodine. I am allergic to shellfish I cannot have iodine do not sterilize my water with iodine. Die. Not Everybody but fair enough right I I haven't actually tested that theory I actually just had to have a biopsy done but a week ago and there lay. They asked something i. was like so I'm allergic to iodine and they're like Do you know if you have a reaction I was like? This is not a biopsy that I want. Fair enough. Yeah. So. have. Found that one out yet but yeah. There's a healthcare provider. Most of us are like I don't WanNa find out either let's find something else. Let's let's choose alternative yeah. Alcohol is just fine. In more ways than. So I mean, why were they? I mean Yeah I. Guess You was probably even carry that around for later but they didn't need to sterilize the rain water I'm thinking. All right add another thing. Explain to me how high school is like off the beaten track and has been isolated for ten years no one's read it. I'm sorry what high school is off the beaten track Rated it like how like stuff in the base well. What does the things that they said was? Oh good. We can go in there because it's off the beaten track and it's you know it's been it's totally isolated and I'm sure there's plenty of stopped there. and. It's maybe one of those really small town high schools you know. Like if you went to like. No I mean who's got the giant tubs of Potato Salad and macaroni salad. Who's got freezers full of hot pockets I mean. Sorry no you're going to raid places like pharmacies and schools and grocery stores and veterenarians office. Yeah and I mean, seriously there is no high school that's off the beaten track. There's not I would say not for at least the people who live in town. So I'm thinking of like Lake, Qlaile High School in central Washington. It is a very, very small town whatever betty who lives there knows where Five thousand residents of that town know about the high school, right? Yeah. Yeah. The thing that I wrote down about the high school was it actually looked like the one from? Black Summer. Do you remember that? Yeah, I do remember that we're like the law of the Lord of the flies kids were staying. Only did kind of like just the opening visual of the high school I was okay with that it went downward rapidly from. Yeah I mean as far as like okay I could still I could see because they had take someone had taken down all of the signs of there was a fallout shelter and that's a really good idea if you don't want anyone to find your fallout shelter. But There were still a bunch of locked doors and I don't think that would be the case this long end you know well, and there were obviously people still they're zombies still there. Yeah. Yeah. And I mean somebody had taken the time to pry open a whole bunch of lockers. And know people do not wear those look. At. Least Iran if not, ironically arid. -Ironically. Yeah I mean, yeah. I remember those kind of glasses but they were the ones that like the Pepsi booth gave out. It's fair. You know like it wasn't somebody I wasn't anything we went to the store and bought. I certainly would not have had them in my locker. No. Else about the world beyond next week, better read better. This final assing that I have is a world where we don't know when a Sadie Hawkins dances is a good world. Premise behind the CD hawkins dances stupid. It's the one where the girl ask the guy to the dance that should just be the norm. Sharpens, anymore sadie Hawkins Dances. No. I'm I'm not that young wake they I think maybe. There was one when I was in like middle. School. And They. They were necessary. I guess back then because girls didn't ask is out and it was all on the guy and so like the poor guys needed just one break. But yes, I kind of laughed at the whole. Do you think she went to the school? Yeah. All right. Well, I. Think we've probably need to take a quick break before we start talking about fear. Because we're an hour into it and know we're going to talk longer about fear and smalls has been winding at me for the last five. Or the editor. This a break brought to you by vita bones. All right we'll be back. Hello everyone this. Episode of fighters was brought to you by dream bones. and. albuterol. Your new inhalers, suck. Oh. Alright. So we talked about world beyond that herdsman flushed. Thank God. Because Oh, my God. Not that bad. God, yes it was. I'm so sorry please someone talked me afterwards I never thought it'd be saying this but it was no fear of the walking. All right. So that leads us into the episode Alaska. which unfortunately, they were not in Alaska why? I kind of felt like this like. I feel little like patronized really I expected more. I expected at least meet somebody from Alaska. To talking off the ledge away. Okay. So But I read it for I talk you off the Ledge. I gave it four Point Eight, seven three marks Smith's of Alaska out of five. Oh my readings might be a little controversial. On the Episode with I gave it a four point, three bottles of IV bleach. I'm from. So when they were in the I'm gonNA say mortuary when. Out was looking around these by the way, just wanted to get it out right now before I, forget to said that was an amazing Walker. The embalmed one US. When she was in that area, there was one of those IV poles with some tubing coming from a bleach bottle hung on it. Was It actually bleach bottle? It was it looked like a clorox bottle that's interesting I. Wonder if it was actually a bottle of Formaldehyde I mean never having been in. In an embalming sweet I, don't know. But so. And when the other half. A bottle of bleach hanging Aaron like well, okay. For the benefit of the Dow was that like you could actually mix up a saline solution in there and use that as a legit. You Know Ivy bottle but I just thought it was funny. For. No specific reason. Okay. So here's me talking you off the Ledge about Alaska. So first of all, it was totally a call back to the license plate game that Erin and Eric were playing in the original series when we met Erin. Oh, I get it. In fact, I wrote down the like was Al and Aaron. Aaron brother Oh. My God that's so funny because that was the next thing I was going use to. Ledge and that was actually that is not my original thought that is from Thomas o'meara he said, l.. says. You got the idea about the licenses to game used to play with her brother with license plates could be errands sister. Yeah and I like like, Oh, you know she keeps referencing being in Africa and he worked for all those NGOs. Oh, I didn't realize that but I thought it was funny because one of the episodes that we really liked was the episode where. I think it was Erin and Darryl that were trapped in the van. They found the LASCO license and we'll ask the license plate. Yeah. Yeah. So that's that's I seriously was I wrote it down like was her brother. Okay. So the other thing that I thought about was it was really funny that they were like. Talking About Finding Alaska license and a whole wii license because there's such a for people who don't live in Alaska. Superhighway between Alaska and Hawaii there is we I mean we have direct flights basic all of us like I'm getting Outta here it's winter I'm going to throat punch somebody. If I don't get away from the snow yet I'm going to Hawaii, which I predict that Oh you know probably come February there's GonNa be a lot of ugliness in south central Alaska. Wife. Rona. And you know what's funny is. In Alaska, we're Alaska. Why are both so reliant on excuse me the tourist traits. and. Here Lasco we were like, oh. My God. It's so awful that there are no tourists you know our any is anybody going to make money, and for some reason I am on the Hawaiian Algorithm on my Tiktok I don't know how there. But there are a ton of Hawaiian people going okay. Like stop coming to the islands with the Rona like stop breaking quarantine, get the F. off our island Oh and quit putting up Yeah locked gates on our public access beaches. That's a real big thing. I don't know how I got on that TIKTOK. Algorithm but I am on it interesting I see a lot of Hawaiian posts. And Yeah. So They're super excited about not having tourists. Yeah. I. You know it's going to get grammar and grammar, but let's not talk about the Ronan and. Let's talk about fear the walking down because it was not. So. Our writer was a personnel Mallory Westfall I thought of you immediately because Mallory Westfall is credited for writing the pilot of the Chucky TV series that is going to be premiering next year. Okay I was like wait I. Missed IT CECCHI TV so. It's not out yet I completely thought of you. She was also listed as an executive story editor for sixteen episodes of fear and she was a writer for three. This episode you're still here which was some episode from last season. I'M GONNA be honest and say it was totally forgettable. And the little prince, which was awful so that we are This episode is proof that she can write her way out of a paper bag. That's funny. Then, our director was Colman Domingo. WHO also has three fear the walking dead credits to his name as a director that's the only director credits he's got. Alaska humbugs Gulch don't forget the San Antonio Split. And then week, which I think is where we got introduced to the filthy lady. Yeah, that kind of sounds, right and I will say just as I said about, Mallory Westfall that this episode bodes really well for Colman. Domingo's directing abilities. I mean I'm really happy with what he did with this episode. Smalls is trying to play with mouses I having it. It's like it's like you have a walker in the battle. I do and she only has three legs and she has a purple. Tail. But yes. That's pretty much a good solid description of her personality. All right. So I guess in this discombobulated world that puts us into our goods bads an uglies. Sure. Safety. Probably have the same good on this one, but we didn't discuss a prior to. Okay. So you go ahead and go first this time. Of course, it was the return of honey or sherry no our goods were not the same. Okay. Well, I absolutely loved you know and I. I don't know I. Don't think this would have been a good one for and we never see her again I really liked that Dwight got reunited with his wife because. You know I was thinking about it. I was like God when we were I kind of introduced Dwight Wha-, hated him. He was a bad guy you know and I have come to really really like Dwight. No matter which show he's on whether it's prime or fear. I really like him. And I really wanted him to you know find Sherry and now I really really WanNa know where Cherie has been. So yeah. I I'm just really happy for the reunion it was. I had a little bit of a hard time focusing on this episode I just. This wasn't the greatest episode for me but the. Cherry camelback was was what made it? That's what gave it is higher reading for me. And how did you read it? I think. Three Four point three what a what? Bottles of IV Bleach Oh. That's right. I'm sorry totally told me and then I believe out of my brain. All right. Well, my good. Oh, before I go into my I, want to see this to Steve Steve. Yes Strand has always been a really grim dark character character strand has always had the capability of kneecapping someone the way she kneecapped owed us off. Lee really poorly written for a couple of seasons now, but he's always been that dark horrible person that we really want him to be. Yeah, it's kind of ETA talk to other podcast hosts. Your past isn't it Thomas Omar Ha actually 'cause I was like, why didn't? Salazar, strand in on the ruse and I kind of agree with Thomas. He said As for why Daniel didn't clue strand in on plan. He. Doesn't trust him. Remember Strand, gave Ginny the starter for the M. Rap and Daniel questioned that last season and Daniel always thought strand only cares about himself. So yeah okay I see it. He also said, and you must be in this thread that that we're both you must be in the same thread He said Janice was Tom Sister Tom died on the Bridge Janice was in the store and Max Headroom told her there one bullet there was one in the gun in the store and then West made it into save her On, tasks was the woman in the House with the landmines. So yeah. Thank you, Thomas for paying attention 'cause season five was kind of a blur. So my good was actually the whole cold open. I really loved it. I loved Morgan's line where he said I feel like I'd been teach of sixteen different somebody's since this whole thing ended. Yeah, yeah and down about the open. Oh my gosh and then I just I wrote him a lot about the cold open. I think that stealing emeals, identities, suits him because he looks really good he and he got the haircut and the beard trim. I. I. Did like the Melding of the two weapons. Yes. I thought that was hugely symbolic and I also think it's kind of interesting has I think. I think it was last season somebody from one of Jimmy's. Compounds or towns or whatever. Repaired his staff and I Kinda WanNa think that like he was getting not only was he like melting his passing his future, but he was also getting rid of that repair that one of Jimmy's people did a you know that's very possible. And the music that was played while he was doing repair or the melting of the to weapons was really good. I don't remember it. It wasn't a song. It was just some some background music, but it was really good. It it added to it. It was in the background, but it added to not detract from. So, why do you think he didn't do you think he really didn't he? He like his arm he could hold the baby or didn't think was a good idea or like this he has this weird aversion to the Morgan Baby I know I actually. So first of all, I wanna see that I was really glad they showed Rachel and Baby Morgan I think he's still has a lot of trauma around Wayne and Jenny I think he's still has a lot of trauma or losing both of them because just the way that he was talking about. Can Keep weight on and about Twain being an infant. Did you notice baby Morgan had the CAROUSEL mobile Yeah and I like how Rachel was. Lake. Baby Morgan playmate. Meaning basically, you know get grace here I was going to say but you're ban rewarded may have a playmate. Yup. Yeah. So I I might go to the cold open ages. I thought it was a great hold open. I mean this really, it really truly was one of the best episodes of fear I think ever. So I was surprised with the I mean. From the ads of what is on the next episode. I was Kinda surprised that we got any Morgan Rachel Baby Morgan because. Al Was the stand. Of course we saw that in the title credits so Yeah and you know again I like what they're doing with the title credits. And I but I also, you know how we got just enough of the Morgan stuff as to Kinda check in. But like we're still kind of a We're doing that had the bottle episodes for the different. People or sets of people in our group, and so you actually just made me realize something which Morgan is going to be the through thread for all of these. Yeah because this is six three, right. So in six to he was the through threat at the end where he connected with the annual I now he was the beginning. Yeah. So I suspect we're probably going to have another. Another through story with Morgan next. Episode as well. After out for that yeah. Are what was your bad. So. My Dad was. I don't know if it was like bad bad. It's more of a question. Why did Al Turn Isabel Away? Spent, all of this time trying to get there, and I'll really wants to see her why did. She, WAIVER OFF I I honestly think that at that point she didn't know that they had antibiotics. So I, do think that she was truly concerned about the infection risk. And I think that that what she said about not wanting to lose dwight, not wanting to lose another brother. was was also very true. I think it was two things. Okay. I will give you that because of the thing that I wrote down right above that was. In, Dwight's video goodbye towel. He said love you or love you and I, was like I was like, oh That was totally awesome. I was just you know here he has we we've talked about his wife throughout this episode. You know he's given up on finding her, and of course, he knows that you know L. is not you know on his team As it were but he loves her like a sister and like it just. Like I said I loved character I. He's He's been through so much horrible stuff. You know in his story arc that like when he connected with somebody enough to be you know like love Ya. You know I was just like oh my did heart fluttered. So I felt like and you know this is not bad. This is kind of rotting pope worry, but it's in response to your bad. I felt like there was a lot of history between owl and white that we haven't seen. I feel like they the past several months that we haven't seen them. Actually it hasn't been months, it's only weeks. But I feel like. I feel like there was a lot there that we haven't. They're just. There to contribute to their relationship, there was tons of relationship there that there wasn't there before right So I would actually really like to know. How? How Developed Yeah I don't know that we'll ever get it. I don't think we ever well, but I would like to see some of that Al White Story. Yeah and be a great buddy cop movie. I like those two together like out of all of the people that have been sort of paired off which I will get to something about that a little later. I think these two are kind of like the most interesting I. Think they're they're well-balanced. I completely agree i. Loved. The two of them together Yup I could completely watch the two of them together on a regular basis and I hope that we can't. Of course, one of our newer characters in one of our characters from prime like screw everybody. Now but like I said, it wasn't so much bad as I was just like when we all of this time and effort and like where were basically on the run from Jenny if she finds out what we're doing, you know like. That point like why not let her land in like? Gruber is smooth shouldn't then be like Oh yeah. We bought a plague. Sorry We're, GonNa Dad. Oh my bad. All right. What would your bad? Two bads and they were both apparently small. But one was a continuity thing that was an issue for me and I'm sorry that my dog is being big giant. Sure. Craig now obviously the didn't last that long. So continuity. It's dark when Al? Goes back in the building with the Cipro. When Dwight goes racing out to see Sherry. It's bright daylight. I can explain this. Okay explain. Okay My other half had the exact same gripe. So she goes in with the Cipro and. Then, they have to like. Get down to where all the other people were. They handed out the cipro their little. Oh Yeah. Everyone saved moment even though most of them were too far gone and they're going to die of the plague. What we kind of build around for a little while, and then we had lake another forty stories. We had to climb down the stairs to and then get to the bottom. And then it was like so it was like morning outside it wasn't like it was kind of like they stayed the night you know treating all of the sick and getting through the rest of the building and the dead and all that kind of stuff. And then they were outside. So there at a larger amount of time had elapsed then they made it seem like, okay. I'm willing to give you that can't put them not willing to give you my second one. Okay. Okay. So this is my medical gripe. Cipro, actually third line drug for the Vanek Plague. Work with what you've got though, right well, so I'm just saying, I, looked it up because of course, as I said earlier, I haven't Mike Ca Treated the bubonic plaque it's not something that's really in my experience. But So. There's actually a very limited literature about the USA Cipro intriguing. The bubonic flag. What they really recommend is like gentlemen. First Line and doxycycline or tetracycline second line. So, my Aka for my bad is super fix everything. Cipro a broad spectrum though isn't it? It is but it doesn't fix everything. Okay. So and I think that part of what's going on is that it does treat anthrax and when we have the whole anthrax scare like right after nine eleven, everybody got cipro like fused into their brains. So, this is my medical rant cipro doesn't fix everything no, it doesn't but it is a broad spectrum and it's not like they were specifically putting it there to treat the Google play they were probably putting it there. In case someone got you know a cut or a gunshot wound or something like that, and to be fair, it's not even completely contrary indicated in the treatment of the bonding plague, but it's not the first line drug. Now, but they worked with what they got. So that's my medical gripe. Those people were goners at like that dude who was like just like laying. On his neck yeah. We need to tie his legs together just. FYI Like in fact, we should do that with everybody who has the plague. Like they're going to reanimate in Eddie moment. Yeah and and Eric Kane did make the point in his review. He was like most of these people are probably going to die because they probably are so far gone that even Detroit aren't GonNa touch them. Not Even Ivy Bleach. But maybe formaldehyde. Make for a good look at Walker Stab Walker was awesome. We hang on some really good. World beyond I will give them that, and now this we've got some really good walkers in the last couple of weeks. I was like, okay even dead or is she like she was crazy? Yeah. All. Right. All right. What was your ugly? So my ugly actually, we've already talked about it and it was the whole license plate game and is Air Aaron and Al Related. Now, I. You. Know I feel like she had some moments on tape about her brother but was she interviewing her brother or was talking about her brother because now I feel like I have to back and seek those out and I really don't WanNa go back. Oh Yeah. So that was my ugly and it was it was a good ugly because you know kind of yeah. They didn't actually ever have to be answered for me just just assuming that Oh. Hey because it's kind of a common game that I think a lot of people played in cross country tracks I mean usually it's not collecting them physically, but it's like, oh, there's a license plate from Alaska there's. Yeah Yeah Yeah. Yeah. So i. just the thought of like, oh, maybe her in Aaron are relief because I don't think they're ever going to meet up on any show. So you know I you know I think the question that I would have is does she know for sure her brother is dead. Or is she just assuming because they were separated and they've never been able to find each other? I. Don't know. I don't remember the story the the little bit of storyline that we got about her brother well enough. But certainly the whole Africa connection and now the the license plate connection. It's suggested. Yeah. I'm not totally writing an off I. Think it's legit theory you know and it could be one of those that they save for the the politics not yeah. The NFL Anthology, which by the way, one of the things that I did notice in an interview with Matt, aggressive about world beyond was someone said I really feel like the purple haired Walker from the high school needs to have her part in the anthropology Siri. Okay and the Weirdo in me that is far too many crime series. Is like you know that's legit how they find a lot of bodies like the hair is one of the hair mask is like one of the last things to go. I just got swim remembering something I. Don't know if it's from a novel that I read from a true crime thing that I read actually think it's a true crime thing the brains, the braids, the braids it was. You exactly. What was that a Bundy thing I don't think so I think it was a serial killer though like, yeah, like that's the they did find other tidbits of the the the but the brain mates like by the creek. Yeah I mean it was a full on it looked like a league where somebody had b debris and it was actually yeah. Oh. Aright I'M GONNA I'M GONNA do my ugly because it's a good ugly. Hope I needed some some hope. And it's like wait you're on the. Radio. I don't need that kind of hope. No, not that hope no no no I. Just I was so happy to have an uplifting ending and some are and some some hopefulness because I feel like we have been so bereft of hope in the walking dead universe for a really long time. I mean especially after getting crushed by Oh my Gosh Allen is a bell aren't actually gonNA reunite. The reunion white and Sherry you're good. Was My ugly I love dead it just it made me. So happy to see them just mackinaw on each other space. Oh. Well, and especially after the whole her note of like, don't try and find me right. You know. I kind I want to know what that was all about because she seemed pretty happy to see him so was. She. Issue truly didn't like was like you know I'm with somebody else now or I don't WanNa see you or you know you just bring too much bad passed up for me like she could have just not answered the radio when she realized it was wait. You know we all do weird stuff when we're wounded case in point. But no I. Just it was really really nice to end something uplifting and to just be happy and watch walking dead episode and be happy at the end. Yeah and somebody who we like really got. You know. Something that they deserved I am going to say the the thing that is kind of my runner up for my ugly was just I love the way that Austin Amelia Played Dwight especially in this episode, he was just engaging upbeat and Not In any manipulative or artificial way he was really believable and I loved him I just gap. White was great Austin Amelia was great hands down. Just fantastic. Five stars very good. Absolutely recommend. Rx. Did Not have much down for writing. Shot. Pages, of course, I do. So the first question that I have is you know white talked about how he kind of had this plan that when he found Sherry he was going to mess up a walker, throw his camera on it and like basically fake his death in peace with Sherry is he going to do that? I don't think. So I mean I hope not but I mean, there's part of me. That's like. Are we going to lose both of them now that we've got Sherry back. Yeah I WANNA say no but I also don't think that he's GonNa be like hey, come back to Jimmy's compound and then you'll probably get separated like Megan did to us you know like A Yeah I don't know what he's. GonNa. Do I hadn't thought of that. Okay. That actually reminds me of another thing entirely. So Allah made this promise to Nora that they were gonna I was like, where is it? What's it like where you're from and she's like you don't WanNa, go there. Somewhere wonderful for you. How are they going to do that? I mean if they can't find something wonderful for their own people, are they going to do that? I don't think it's a matter of not being able to find someplace. Wonderful. It's finding someplace where Jimmy's GonNa find them because if they go missing then Jenny GonNa, have people looking for them. But if Jenny doesn't even know you exist, they can send him back to the place that they were going to make the the humbugs culture they can send him over there. You know. I I don't know so. Yeah. So. Back to the plague. Okay don't actually get the plague from rats. You get them from fleas on rats. Very good point that is actually very accurate. So they really didn't have to point out that two days ago Dwight had a rat in his sleeping bag which you. Like I. Don't know maybe it's just because I'm so terrified of spiders that I check my sleeping bag before I get into it. You like we don't have any snakes or anything up here we don't have too many crazy bugs like. You know I think we have the Hobo Spider, which is loosely related to the Brown reclusives at every. Once in a while, we'll get a a black widow in on a cruise ship or ship a shipment of bananas or something but like. We generally don't have anything to freaky that can fit inside of a sleeping bag. But I just yeah. So. Yeah. All those people who like everyone freaking out about the rats, the rats fault. It's the fleas fault. You know you're actually making me think that now I'm going to have to way sleeping bag for. Them, well, so you know a beer, a two mice zero as far as I know, but you know. I don't know I. I have to check my yarn this weekend this coming weekend you're more apt to get the Hanta virus in your the plague. Violent I'm so that We the hot zone. The Hodson but it's been it's been a hot minute want. Seriously I did read it when it first came out, but it's been a long time. No, I read it come on rent it and I watched the. TV series of course. The made for TV six episode mini series. So one of the reasons why I wanted to print out the play again is also because my other half was also on the whole. Why did they start picking up pieces of office furniture like the three hole punch and stuff and start taking out the zombies why didn't they use the weapons that they had in their hands? Because those Donbass had died of the plague and one of the ways that you can get the plague is from the. Juices is the wrong word the the. The liquids the come from dead bodies that have died of the plague. So they did not want to infect their own weapons and then carry around weapons that were infected. So that's why they kept picking up different things like the fire extinguisher, the three hole punch the. that. Chair bottom. I actually really liked the three hole punch as a weapon. Yeah, those things are pretty hefty. Yeah. Thing that would have been better is if they would've had one of those A. Document. Cutters you know with big razor blade thinking that comes down. Yeah, Yeah Yeah. The only thing that would have been better as one of those is just a like to rip that blade right off there because it's got a blade handle and you just swint and those are fairly heavy to Yup. Yup. So. Yeah I kind of liked the use of like infection in this episode. just because you have like like the wolf you hadn't added element beyond the walkers. You know it was eat the rats even though it was the fleas on the rats. and. Then the whole point of almost radiated walkers you had to be careful like you couldn't just kill the walkers like you had to. Okay Yeah. So. What else? So how I hearing Isabel on the walkie. In the. Mortuary. Has she been hearing about all along and monitoring I kind of feeling yes and then the other thing was I got the feeling that Isabel realized she was talking to Al at the end. I mean even like the whole beer thing I mean that's like something that you would say to anybody. Beer. In the cooler over there, hope it's not your last one album is that what she said to her I wouldn't have to go back to episode artist to season. But the other thing is. I mean Al's response was so vague. Oh, it's good to hear your voice because there aren't many people left out here i. mean it was just also bag I was like, do they really I mean al no, she's interacting with Isabel. Isabel. No, she's interacting with Al I wasn't entirely clear. Okay. So here's my argument is one ala kind of has a distinctive voice and two. I kinda think Alan made an impression on his. and vice versa. So. Yeah I. Think it was like upon my I watch. I was like. I'm like dude as about no, and like Second Watch I was like Oh. Yeah. They both knew. All right I'm not entirely convinced. But. Are there was something that made me think about our current pandemic and it was something Al-Said about Virginia. People died because blank went wrong and Virginia actually cared she'd have gotten to it before it actually happened. I was like, oh, shade the walking dead source of shade. Well. Yeah, I just. I don't get that storyline of all of a sudden. Why does ginny want stuff taped and why didn't get the whole story line about things being taped either Didn't make any sense to me. Yeah. I mean there's definitely something bigger that ginny is gearing up to fight I definitely. Think that is also a thread that's going to run through this entire season. We just don't know what it is yet. Frank. Part of that I think is I think it was Eric Kane who dubbed them vandals. Yeah. So I mean the taggers I think of them as the taggers. Okay. But yeah, I mean. So they're potentially the ones who created the plague. Yeah. So I, want why how did that get put together like? I guess maybe because there was the rat in the cage at the beginning that the Walker fell on that it's like, okay maybe they collected these rats and. Like put them in the building i. just assumed that like you know any other like major structure you know post apocalyptic that nature sort of just took over in the rats moved in and that was that you know that was kind of what I thought too but you know. Yeah, I mean they saw the scan the can of spray paint next to the cage where rat had been so I mean well, and and the the end is the beginning was tagged on the building. Yeah. which was what was tagged on that huge submarine right look at the flowers games. It's GONNA fix. Yeah But they need key for something. But. They're going around and tagging build I. Don't understand how it all fits together right now. It's like trying to do a puzzle when you don't have the picture to go with it or something. Yeah I don't know they're gonNA. They're gonNA tie them in somehow to. Yeah maybe we're the big bad the genie's fighting against. Yeah, I was GONNA say but how does the title Tien Ginny? So yeah. Maybe maybe there why she's creating army right still disappointed that her other sister wasn't Alaska. I did I one of the things that I wrote in my notes was the Isabel storyline is compelling because we all like tragic. Romance. Nah He didn't well, you're cold and dead side. Well in so I don't like tragic. Romance. Romance. Like do I in Sherry finding each other. That was almost a tragic romance. It was kind of tragic for a while. Actually you know and I one of the Forbes guys was like, yeah I like it would have been so much more interesting if like sheree had been bitten. So yes dwight found her but then he immediately has to kill her like wow, dude. He's even more calling inside than you are. All right. I did write that I really liked the chick who played nora. I thought that there were some moments that were very while acted when she was crying she was legit, Cryan. and. I. Also think that she's pretty bad ass for somebody who's used to sell timeshare. That she also mentioned that she thought all these people are I forgot how she put it but basically losers for you know buying timeshares these places but she's like I never had the courage to go. You know traveled with those exotic locales So. Kind of self reflective. I did think briefly for a minute there that Maggie grace was going to be like peace out on this. The walking dead thing. I really thought that she was going to scooped up by the chopper and go away. I was kind of hoping that. You know that's how we were GONNA I like get an extra sort of tie in with crm but. I. Guess not yeah. It'll be interesting to see if somehow we end up. With A reintroduction of Isabel at some point. I. Don't know. I'm not not convinced either way that that story wine is alive or dead. You know I think they're keeping an open purpose to keep their options open. Okay with that I I saw that there were some and it might have been when the Forbes guys that might have been comic book or something The someone was complaining about like, why are they just randomly dropping supplies on rooftops in places and I'm like, okay for one you've obviously never played video games. because there's always random supplies on rooftops to it kind of sounded like it was like kind of drop points where if you got stuck in an area or if you were sending a team to an area, you had specifically mapped out places where you knew you could find 'em Ariz antibiotics, extra word ammunition. You know all those kind of things planned out ahead of time and they were in multiple places so that if one place was compromised with, oh I don't know plague. You could move onto Delta location you know. which is what they did. So I think the whole point about what you've got people randomly landing on your roof and dropping stuff off and you know there's like this I don't know that was just it was weird that whole thing was weird. Yeah. It was weird that they. Shot Poor. With Brandon Smith Michelson Mark Smith, Mark Smith, Mark, Smith of Alaska Mark Smith of Alaska. you know and it's so funny the other half and I actually had an argument over what? Driver's licenses and Alaska's look like back then. because. They have changed a couple of times over. So who wait longest time we still had those like one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, two, laminated. Type written height weight. You know all that kind of stuff on it. we eventually did move to the ones you saw on this episode, and we are now finally getting to rely de so. we actually had the phone a friend on what ideas look like because he was A. Bouncer. So He oh, my God that is ideally or living forever and And the the show was correct. Very good except they had one extra digit. Our driver's license numbers aren't that long But they probably had to use like F. You know it had to be a fake one right I mean it's just like you know there's like a fake phone number that they use in in TV shows, right? Yeah. All right I actually don't have anything else. I don't either I accept that I'm I'm so glad to have a great episode of fear and I'm looking forward to listening to for the head because it sounds like they had exactly the same take that. I slash we did. So, we're we're going to keep doing the two episodes for as long as they do one may it's telling may maybe we'll mix it up once and Diane can fear the walking dead. I'll watch world beyond and we'll just sit here and tell each other. Oh my gosh. It would be kind of like my favorite murder episode. Kind of funny it would mean. I am going to edit this one hopefully tomorrow night, but I am behind work because I've been sick all weekend. But I will try to edit this one and at the real housewives and get them both up. Excellent Yeah and you know again we're still waiting for our real housewives housewives feed to go live and I tunes apparently you can take a while which is like super frustrating we are also posting to spotify either which is just irritating. So. We'll get there. Yeah I know I'm proud of US just for recording. Yeah. You're right. You're right. Doing so much recording now. Oh my God. Oh. All right. Well, until record again, which is like six days. Matt for recording a real housewives episode, right? Yeah. I mean covert isolating for the rest of my life. So all I'm GonNa do is podcast that's going to be my whole interaction with the world. Isolating it's not because of. Really don't like people anymore. Either zero. Stars Very. Bad. All right everybody. Until we talk again at some point in the very near future. Just remember. Take it. One. Day. Added time out of time. Why was Bad tonight. All right everybody. Have a good week. Have a good week. Bye. La.

{wednesday rewind} no. 55 - The Dexafit Episode

"Today's Wednesday rewind air of the decks fit episode that aired last season. You may have noticed in this Mondays. New Episode the Game Changers Movie Episode. I made a mention that decifit is now a sponsor of the show. I wanted you to be aware of all the different types of testing from body composition to metabolic testing Offers as a reminder decks offit Atlanta is offering listeners of this omonia life a- ten percent discount on services booked through DEXSA fit dot com using the code on millennial at checkout again that's exit dot com code millennial at checkout. I hope you enjoyed this episode. I'll be back next week with another new show if your skin doesn't know whether to break out a wrinkle if you're caught between planning the Third Grade Class Party and researching retirement plans or if you want to work out at the idea of cross bit makes your forty something knees egg you've come to the right place. Welcome to this UN Molyneaux life. I'm your host Reagan Jones and welcome to today's show for those of you that follow me on instagram. You may recall that before the Christmas holidays. I made a quick trip over to Atlanta from my home in Augusta to go have some testing done specifically I was having a dexter scanned on resting metabolic rate and three D. ASSESSMENT. Not only briefly shared some of this information on instagram. And so many of you message me and said I want to know more so the background is. I happen to be right before Christmas scrolling through instagram myself. And I saw that my good friend and colleague who you may remember from the Orange Theory episode an-and the laser hair removal episode Katie. We had been to adapt fit location in Tampa Florida. Now I was familiar with Texas. Scans as testing? And you'll hear me talk about that here in this episode. But I was immediately intrigued to find out. What was this decks? Offit location is this. A chain was at something that I could find locally because truthfully for years I have been wanting to have a dexsa scan done to do an assessment of my body composition so I looked through. Katie's information on instagram stories. I messaged her. I did what I always do. When I'm interested in a new topic and began to Google it and found that there was a new decks offit location in the Atlanta area. I contacted that location to set up a testing date and went over as my Christmas present to myself to have some testing done. My intention truly was to buy this for myself for Christmas present. I'm that big of a data nerd that I wanted to do this type of testing as a gift to myself when I arrived and met Maureen who you are also going to meet here in this episode and shared with her that I was doing this testing and would be talking about it on my podcast. She was kind enough to elect me do the testing for free. So I want to make that disclaimer. This is not a sponsor episode by exit by any stretch of the imagination. I always had this intention to do this episode but I did want to know that she did allow me to do that testing for free and I am so appreciative. I hope that as I'm able to go back Maureen we'll let me pay her for these services because I fully intend to go back and do assessments over time to see how all things that I'm doing with my nutrition and my fitness are helping to change my body composition and most importantly to get an assessment of longevity. So I've given all the background on me and my reasons behind doing this now. I want to give you a very quick background on marine and then jump into my interview. My guest today is Maureen o'meara who is actually a thirty year veteran of federal law enforcement. But she is now the owner of DEXSA FIT in Atlanta. Maureen describes herself as having a life long love of fitness and wellness and through her own personal health journey. Much like my own. She discovered DEXSA FIT so today. She's helping others achieve their best health through the testing services that decks offers. And that's what we're going to talk about in this episode. And with that I would say Maureen. Welcome to the show. Thanks Reagan. I have cheered with listeners that I kind of stumbled upon you and I'm so glad that I did. I felt we clicked from the moment that I walked in the door and I love all the testing that I had done at your location I shared about on instagram and people were like we want to know more. So that's why I'm producing this podcast today. So the first thing that I want you to do is just give the big umbrella of what is when they hear that the term decks fit. What is decks offit? Dexsa FIT is a company that since two thousand eleven has open to conduct science backed digital fitness and wellness testing. So what that means is we do Body composition testing and metabolic testing using hospital and research grade testing methods. And I can get into that a little bit more if you want i. Well I WANNA draw Listeners attention to this fact because if you don't really work in this world haven't been in this world you might not realize this but what Maureen and other decks offit locations like hers are offering now is something that Kosh Maureen. I'm GONNA say five. You know definitely twenty years ago when I was coming through graduate school And maybe even as late as five years ago. This is testing. That was really hard to come by. You had to know someone at either a hospital or primarily a hospital slash research university center to get some of this testing done so the fact that you now as a consumer can go and get this level of hospital grade testing done. I think is purely amazing. Exactly this is. This is the kind of testing that is don in academia exercise. Physiology Exercise Science Any type of a research organization. That's doing doing work on research on body composition or cardiovascular health metabolic health. They're using these tools so we're bringing research grade medical grade tools into the mainstream and and making accessible to everyone which is exciting. Especially when you're someone like me who you like to go deep into the information even on yourself so now. Let's uncover for people? Let's talk first about all the different types of testing that you offer. I have three in particular that I want to dive deep end but just give us a broad overview of everything that you offer their decks in Atlanta. Will WE DO The the bread and butter here is the Body composition testing using a scanner That is that is one of the primary test we do. We Do to other primary tests related to metabolic testing so resting metabolic rate and the video. Two Max testing so. Those are the three primary tests. I do I've got some I've got a fit three body scanner that takes external measurements of your body. And then we do some. We have some take home. Test kits for blood testing for biomarkers microbiome Dna testing that sort of thing but our primary tests are the metabolic testing in the body composition. Very cool and those are the three that I wanted to talk about. Now I when I came over to see you Intended to get the decks the scan and the resting metabolic rate. I did not intend to do video to Max and I did not do that but you did. Give me the opportunity to fit three D which was pretty darn cool to be able to see that. And See your measurements done from total body level if anybody's ever had to do their own body measurements where you take the tape measure and you put it around your way render fine all that this is standing room and hold onto some handles and twirl twirled around a little bit and it gives you this great three. D. Imaging which I really enjoyed but what I WANNA do is now go one by one. Through the body composition analysis. You know decks the scan the RA MAR and the video to Mac. So let's start with decks can tell us about that About that test. You know kind of what it is what it's looking at and then if people are going to have it done like what they're going to expect when they get there. I. I love the decks a scanner. So I'M GONNA I'm GonNa talk that one up. This is the gold standard and I know people say that a lot about a lot of different things but This deck skinner is an amazing device for determining total body composition. So when I'm when I'm talking about that I'm talking about your your total body. Fat Your visceral body fat your lean tissue your bones and your bone density and it this machine will tell you the the location and the percentage of that throughout your body. It breaks it down into Arms Legs Trunk Andrew Renegade Annoyed Region and. It's very accurate in very detailed It's a great way to if you haven't had one done before to get a baseline to see where you are to track your progress throughout whatever whatever you're doing in terms of nutrition or or fitness and To see you know to to see where you end up it's It's just incredibly incredibly accurate tool that. I can't say enough about yeah. I think the thing with Dexter scan people be people hear about body scales or whatever and those are typically buy electrical impedance. Most experts are all experts that I've ever talked to have said you know what they're just highly inaccurate but the decks scam like Maureen said is extremely accurate and what I really enjoyed about. It was one not being able to get a baseline to see if things that I do over the coming year. You know. Change any of my body composition. But it's not about just getting one body fat number. It's about looking at okay. Where are you storing? Most of your fat. You know some of that. I kind of know I mean I tend. I mean if you meet me you'll know like okay. Well she store in a little more fat around her hips. And that's not that atypical. For I know mini mini women. But this will break it down for you as Maureen said. And tell you okay. This is what the left leg is doing. The right leg is doing this is what's happening around your midsection your internal organs and we know that you know that is the more unhealthy fat if you will the fact that sitting there right there in our midsection so when a scale or just any type of measurement gives you one. It's really not breaking it down into areas and helping you look at that. This breaks it all down and it also does what it was originally tint intended to do marine mentioned that but. I want to draw your attention to this. Lady's it gives you your bone density measurement which the first decks. Scana ever had done was in an osteoporosis clinic. When I was in Graduate School they afforded me the opportunity to do that because they did that. For all their patients. So I was pleased when I visited with Maureen to find out that I actually have the bone density of Thirtyish year old woman which is really good to kind of find out those things. So that's really important and Maureen. Now Walk Through for people what it looks like when you actually physically come in to get the scan you talk through. What they're doing. Edessa scanner is a very low level. X ray machine so. I've got a table that I put you on and an arm passes over you scanning armed passes over you. It takes about from head to toe depending on how tall you are. And how much she way It it it takes about five six minutes. Roughly so it's really simple. It's really straightforward and were done in less time than it takes me to do the paperwork and very noninvasive of test and some people have asked if it's like to like a a bod pod or an MRI. It's not like that. They're so it's it's it's not enclosed at all. It's just an arm that passes over you and it's very noninvasive so it's really easy. It's it's basically laying down on a table and you know something passing over. There's no confinement at all and remind me Maureen because I did have some Pre-session requirements but. I don't think this one had any precession requirements. Is that correct? That's correct right when as with anything. X ray related. We WanNA keep the metal to a minimum right so comfortable close in as few as possible as fuse. You feel comfortable in but no. There's no pre-test protocol requirements for this. So there's no no fasting. No No Caffeine for collusion's nothing like that. There's a little paperwork to fill out ahead of time and then I usually go over the results. Why'd I go over the results right away once once we're done now? I want to move to the second one which is in a little bit of direct contrast from the decks scan and that is our Mr the resting metabolic rate testing because while it is not difficult to do. It is a little bit more. There's some subtle nuance to the comfort. Level and Maureen. You will do a great job of explaining this because I actually came in a little bit unaware of how this worked and you were really good to say okay now. We've we've got to get used to this. Got To be prepared for this because this is a little bit different. It's not the same as lying on a table. And having a wind move over you and it has some prerequisites so talk about the armour testing resting metabolic rate Testing gives us your metabolic rate at rest. it's an incredibly accurate way to determine what your caloric needs. Are You specifically Throughout the day at rest a lot of times We get these numbers from the Internet. And they could be the basal metabolic rate which is your metabolic rate at while you're sleeping or resting metabolic rate based on a predicted value for your age. You wait your gender all of that this does it accurately and the way we do that is through a method called indirect. Keller Imagery. You're wearing a mask We put we put a mask on you. And and it I connected to a a metabolic car which measures your carbon dioxide output in your oxygen input and using that ratio weekend glean a tremendous amount of information about what your body is currently using as its primary fuel source whether that's fat or carbohydrates and your metabolic needs for one day at rest. That's why we need to get people arrested. I put you in a chair. Give you a blanket because it does get cold but this mask on you connect you to the machine and the new sit for about fifteen minutes now to get you into that rested. State we need to we need to Observe some some pre-test protocols so No no eating and no drinking at least five hours prior to I really recommend even more than that so what I try to do is to get people to take this test first thing in the morning so wake up. Come to see me. I've been convinced to come pretty early in the morning because people want to have their caffeine may get angry so so we try. I like to get those tests done as early as I can. And I I can see from the computer screen. I can see whether you're truly rested or or not. And so once we get done with that we have a really good baseline for your resting metabolic rate. That test was very insightful. I don't think that Maureen really emphasized one point. I thought was pretty neat. It she she mentioned that it kind of says like are you using as a metabolic fuel as a fuel at the moment so it was able to share. You know for me that I was at that point burning sixty percent carbohydrate in forty percent fat which I think they classify and I have been told means that I'm metabolic flexible and that's something good. That's something to train towards is getting yourself to be more metabolic flexible so that you can burn carbohydrate and burn fat and are not in our not storing as much so I felt that was really interesting and then the other thing that was super interesting was for me. I always tend to end my mind. Think I am a low metabolic rate person? I've just over the years. If you guys have listened to my macro counting episode you probably realize that probably carry around a little psychological baggage that says. Hey I I just don't burn as much as everybody else. But when I did this testing with Maureen it said actually I'm a metabolic rate a little bit higher than what was predicted. Four my current age. So that's really important to know because when you are looking at these calculators online. They're really basing it off of your your age and just some predicted tables based on that and this is just a much much more accurate picture now. The one that did not do and I actually in telling a fitness Dietitian friend about what I had done he said Oh. You should've had the video. Max Why did you not get to Max? I didn't have that done Maureen. I'm GonNa tell you right now. I've got to come back. I know I'm going to come back for the for a Decca scan are Mr down the line to look at baseline and make a comparison. But I gotta come back for the video to Max because I've heard like that is one that I need to have done so walked through for people what that looks like so via to. Max is a great test for cardiovascular health and I think most people have seen this either you know on TV online People wearing masks On a treadmill running or on a bicycle pedaling really hard and what this does is it. Measures the the amount of oxygen. You can take in for kilogram body weight over time so what we're looking for are Is a number that number. And it'll it'll give us a really good idea of your cardiovascular health and we've got a we've actually got a scale on the wall that ranks you But this is typically done in sports labs professional sports teams do this on a regular basis to increase that video to Max because the higher that can go the obviously the the higher you can perform and for people who aren't professional athletes. It's a tremendous predictor of mortality and longevity. There are a number of studies out there that link via to Max to basically how long you're going to live just today. I was reading another report. That talks about The association between certain forms of cancer and obesity. So when we talk about looking your body composition yes some of it may be aesthetics but some of it is about understanding. Okay where am I? Where am I at right now in terms of my body composition? How overweight or obese am I and most importantly the interventions that. I'm taking the things that I'm doing in the gym. Or whatever physical fitness that you're doing or the dietary interventions. Are you making a positive change? And this is the gold standard for being able to say yes or no. We're headed in the right direction. And that's one of the reasons that I'm so glad that I found Maureen and the decks offit location there in Atlanta now marine. One thing that I do want to give you just a quick opportunity to share with. People is the reports that they get so tell people like once they come in and they get the different testing done. What do you hand over to them? We end over a pretty comprehensive package depending on obviously on the tests that you got for the the DHEC scanner I will I have a report that shows you your total body. Fat Your Bone in pounds and lean tissue and and and And your visceral fat too. By the way and the distribution of those things now the visceral fat is always in the same place but That is one of the. That is one of the key Things that I point out in that in that exam so will will look through the whole report. Look at lean tissue in its distribution any asymmetries that may lead to injury or cause injury and he bone density Your bone density numbers like like you talked about In that visceral fat which is really important to take a look at so you get a really detailed report and if I'm seeing someone for a second time. That report will show trends will see Any any any drops in in any of the body fat or or the changes in the distribution of it so it pretty comprehensive reports. That's pretty neat. You Walk Away with a lot of information to digest and to have at Baseline. Yes a lot of information and more when you come back for for with any trends. We'll see any trends for same for the resting metabolic rate in the video to now the resting metabolic rate will provide you with your The the actual calculated metabolic rate. That that we we came up with and then it gives some And the rest I change ratios. We talked about with the car versus fat-burning numbers will show you that percentage and the We'll we'll give you some ideas for adding calories Ian because this is a resting metabolic rate right so this is not what most people do throughout the day. They're doing activities so we have a a table adds calories back in and again. It's a framework for for people to to take and tinker with a little bit but It gives you an idea based on your activity level. What you can expect to add back into your diet Now Maureen. I want to make sure that people understand how they can find you but before we do. Is there anything that we haven't covered that you think people need to know either about the testing or the services that you offer one thing that I that I do want to mention that just came out and actually? I'm not sure that it was available when you came in Reagan so this this is good for you know to Decifit has created an APP. it's just Ios right now so it's just apple but it should be. We should have the droid version coming up in the next few months so if if you download that APP All of this information will be uploaded to your account so you create an account using the same email address us with me and it come. It gets uploaded into your count and that information will be consolidated. You will be given a longevity score. There will be pulling in some resources into this APP for nutrition and fitness and all kinds of other resources that that you may want to tap into so It's it's a neat. It's a neat APP. And it's growing. You know I will be downloading it just as soon as we finish this episode because I love having that kind of information right there at my fingertips but Maureen now. I want you to make sure that people understand how they can find you. In the Atlanta area people probably have picked up on. I don't live in Atlanta but this was such a unique opportunity when I learned that DEXSA fit even existed over in Atlanta that I said Hey I am willing to drive over there and get this testing dying so you don't have to live in Atlanta to get this done. You can just make the drive over to see Maureen but she's GonNa tell you exactly where she's located and then just give a brief mention that there are other locations throughout the country. Maureen let people know how they can find you. I am actually just outside of Atlanta. And she emblem at five five five three peachtree road in Chamblee and a if you Go to the deficit website. You can find me and all of the other decks offit so it's www dot decks offit dot com and If you click up in it's in the upper right hand corner find a location. I think we're at about twenty two or twenty. Three decks fits more opening all the time. So in the southeast alone we've got a couple and Florida one in Alabama and And and of course me and Atlanta and I've had people come from North Carolina to see me so and and and you Reagan from Augusta. So I'm and I'm happy to work with anybody in their schedule if they can't get in during my my normal hours which are eight to six pretty much seven days a week right now. So I'm happy to happy to be accommodating. Mari just thank you so much for coming on the show today. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to experience so much of this. I cannot wait to come back. Thank you Reagan's been amazing. Appreciate it so much okay. That wraps up my interview with Maureen as you can see a lot of different cool things that dexsa offers whether it's the Atlanta location or one of the other locations throughout the country. If you hear this podcast Anna are inspired to go have testing done on your own. I would love to hear about it sometimes. You guys message me and let me know when you've bought new eyelashes are. You've tried out the new tinted sunscreen. I love to hear about those stories and even if you hear me talk about something and you think nope that's not for me. I'm always open to hearing your feedback. You can get in touch with me through the website. By leaving me a voicemail this millennial life dot com slash contact. You can email me. Reagan at this UN millennial life dot com or. I'm all across social media at Reagan. Jones R D on twitter instagram facebook. I am going to take a quick commercial break and then I'll be right back for the odds and ends ending up today show. Today's podcast is brought to you by the soy foods. Counsel as we talk on this episode about getting my Texas scan done of course one of the things that I am looking for is muscle mass and over time. I'll be looking to see how that muscle mass increases now. When you hear me say that you may think that one of the things that I rely on for protein is animal based protein while that is certainly a part of my diet. I also loved soy protein. Many of you may not be aware that soy protein actually has been shown to help build muscle and increased strength in fact a comprehensive analysis that included nine different clinical studies published in two thousand eighteen. Found that among men engaged in weightlifting. Soy Protein lead to similar gains strength and muscle mass as animal protein and pretty's and the good news. Is that soy protein is especially advantageous because it lowers blood cholesterol levels so just like me so it can be preferred plant protein whether you're Vegan vegetarian or if you'd like more information and to find recipes visit the SOY FOODS COUNCIL DOT COM. Welcome back now. Occasionally things will show up here in the odds and ends ending of the show and then make their way to be a larger. Podcast episode. I have a feeling this next topic is going to be one of those but I am so dying to get this information out there and get you guys thinking about it and talking about it and talking about in the facebook group. I'm going to go ahead and just put it out there and get it on your radar and the topic. Is that of any grams. I was visiting with someone months ago. Who asked me what my instagram. And I certainly hope I'm saying that correctly I am not known by good pronunciation which is somewhat ironic given that. I am a podcast anyway. She was asking me what my type wise and I frankly didn't know I'd never heard of it as I looked into it a little bit more. I became more and more interested in and intrigued. And then my friend Gretchen. Who you heard here on the podcast in the eyelashes episode happened to mention to me any grams. Recently we have fallen down a rabbit hole and have been evaluating all of our family and friends and really diving. Deep into what has become a very popular and powerful tool for people to evaluate how they relate to themselves and others in the world. I'm not going to dive deep into any grams here at the odds and end ending as I said you can probably expect a future episode to really go through what it is and how people take the test and what it all means but I wanted to get it on your radar because as I started talking to friends about it I found. There's a huge divide. There are people who know about it who've taken the test and who are very passionate about evaluating what it all means and then there are people who are completely in the dark and have not heard this terminology at all but it is popular enough now that I wanna get it on your radar so that you will know if someone around you starts asking about it what it is if you aren't familiar with instagram. The word that I'm saying is spelled E. N. N. E. A. G. R. A. M. There are different paid tests that you can take. There are free ones. There's even an instagram APP. And I honestly like that when I haven't taken the test on their actually took the test on the instagram institute website to get my first assessment but I like the APP because it has some really good information that talks to you about your different characteristics. And it's funny because I feel like even without taking the test. Once I started reading through those I was immediately able to identify myself and I was immediately able to identify my husband and the thing that I found really intriguing about all this. Is that as you read through the different types. You can probably see yourself in a number of different areas but after knowing what my type is. I have been able to identify throughout my day. And throughout my week different situations that will pop up and I will be confronted with my natural tendency so to do some of the things that let's be honest or my best characteristics. I'll be candid and tell you that I'm a one and that might need and desire to be right. All the time is my Achilles heel so I am working on that we will dive deeper into that in a future episode but if you are a listener of the show a member of the podcast facebook group if you follow me on social media message me let me know whether or not you've taken any Graham test what your number is and what it says about you or better yet. What I said before the break and leave voicemail at this millennial life dot com slash contact. Thanks for hanging in today and listening to the show from start to finish. I hope you've enjoyed and hope you'll consider sharing it with a friend. This millennial life is available wherever you and your friends. Listen to your favorite podcasts including apple.

In case you what the Hell in the world is everything limited, which means you have unlimited shows episode, bandwidth storage, the whole nine yards with us. We want our clients podcasters to grow and get paid for their hard work in penalize. So without any further ado, we have another. Amazing. PODCAST or who is going to be sharing with you some really cool tips dash going to help you take your podcast game to the next level. So please take time to introduce yourself tell us about yourself. I'm any apart caster by show has gone from just interview style all the way to QNA style so Trying to help more people with the show I realized a Cuban was the way to go. So puck CASTA entrepreneurs speed car. Lots, that's how I started and. The podcast has been an amazing investment for me goes into GMS of. Making, the leap. into. Took on a whole new, a whole new beast at this point John I'm thrilled to be on the road I feel like I'm on a rollercoaster. Okay. So Why did you decide to pick whatever Nisha industry that you have created podcasts Ter- path casts about why particular industry or which industry is that first off from there Started off as a a business success story. PODCAST. I recall. Averse myself having health conditions in still haven't been able to start a business and grow a business and all those things and I felt why? Loads of people could learn from stories. And you know he wasn't just about mine. It was about everybody else's because I love learning at the time learning was a big portion of mine and I found that if I could learn. Myself from the interviews on or the people could benefit as well. Then it's a win win win win for everyone involved so that's why I started. Definitely is a win win i. totally get the whole concept. You know you get an expert and you ask that person and then you get to learn and then you get one times. And you also now to ask pretty much anything you want. You. Know our what I call us a rental expert for an hour kind of thing. Yeah it was crazy. Because initially, it was my friends weren't revolved. Okay. Well, I mean you need to start a show you waiting for the year perfectionism most of the things stalking me dramatically pulling the trigger on the show for. You need to do this not you've been waiting forever. You know you don't need all the technology in the mixes and the average everyone seems to think that they need before they start show. You don't need that you just need people to speak to and on my friends who had started then I you social media to get people on, but eventually I started interviewing people. The I would never in a million years. Of Conversation with. Bolt, because I had a podcast, all of a sudden it became desirable to those people just out of like it's not an I pick your brain. Want to be in on my show. It's the same thing. It's just phrased differently in my mind. On picking these people's brains like I'm not like through made special old. To them it was like, yeah I want to go on the show. So I started interviewing people that I actually idolized for fifteen years. One of them I was on my God wants to be on the show was yeah. Yeah. ABSO- they're trying to. EKE OUT FAILING MISERABLY Ronald to freak out and. I was like less than a month into the show. This is crazy. You know idea what can happen. All you do is just ask but most of it was. Like you would. Just records, and then you would walk away and go about the rest of your your day. It was just like a hobby thing wasn't really anything special. Bull. Stocks to happen to me. And I had to mentally prepare for the interviews more so than. The Hours of research that you might WanNa guest is more mentally for me at the time because I was a coach asking questions was something that I got good out before I even started the show, but it was more about, Oh, my God I'm sat down with this person. Because obviously nerves play a big part in how you can deliver an. Carry Yourself. Initially wasn't too bad depending on who I had. The conversations with but eventually got crazy. It just got stupid. What to learn quite quickly, how to do that because they might have POW sounds of interviews onto that belt anew might have five. And you've got to figure out how to. meet. Expectations for meet your own. Injured and someone the would never have got in the room with like. Otherwise and the I felt a lot of responsibility impressions initially because. They wanted to be good. You wanted to be goals. And Who my first couple of influential people like to make. Is a perception thing in people that are important to may not be important to you. Eventually. Brought to a point where it will take me all day. To mentally prepare for like a half hour interview with someone. Because I'd have to research. I got to. Figure out what I was going to ask and what if mind just goes black coffee through an I've got no idea what to say. Are All the questions used warmer than my going to do. And In some, some people might not even worry about my not even think about so like their responsibility to do a good job at a big part for me especially when I was interviewing people that were influential to me, I felt like I had to job. Kwa. I personally don't think you should put that much pressure on yourself. That's that's a little too much but okay. I mean it's just like if you think about it just say you are human being the person human being at least that's how I look at. You can talking with that person talking list you know depending on the language barrier and we'll have a language barrier then I can understand but that's a little extreme. Extra pressure putting on beer. and. Now looking back I mean it's a rare that happens to me now. But the same with anything if you knew something's going to be a learning curve. Depending on who is you also want to. Know so much. Please them. because. You never know what can comb off the back of an across interview. And you know I had this sort of feeling the response to job you know, and now easier to do by the sped -tations are so much easier to fulfill. Now than they used to be 'cause you've gotten three years of experience in and it's not. Difficult job is not very you know. After the first phone, you've kind of got the idea of recording the show male down. The refining after you've got the basics down so. It was difficult for me initially is it was happening so quickly and I wasn't expecting. Probably all been there were. Invited someone to be a guest and probably pod review secretly thinks they know you. But then they say, yeah, and then you're like all I. They said yes, I. Go to. Be Done in Yugoslavia slow yourself down. The anxious that. You can't think straight. Yeah. It was fun and I had to learn quite. Early on I didn't expect I would need to sort of grow if you will in podcasting world quite quickly within two months, I had to learn pretty quickly how to calm myself down. Think Lali because it's the same. Things when you when you cast in. Some people don't realize how slow half. The speak. To may show of. Things right. When I was nervous because I can speak quickly anyway. So I had to force it there certain degree notes actually pronounce things properly. So all the people of. An and stand what I'm saying. that. It was like Oh my God I sound like I'm on the will speed, but I'm not normal. On slowing down 'cause I WANNA get nervous I. Talk even quicker I didn't think it was possible. So it is still one of those things were. So much growing. Early on to grow up really quickly and be able to handle. The idea to speaking some be. There is much much much much much thir-, their head than I was. I. Guess Awareness Right like if you don't know them easier we we. have no idea who they are. You sat down with them. No Idea I was tasked for the are no idea like anything that album really not easier than. Someone that you know that life story. I. Was talking about I've been I've listened to over two thousand shows like each one of the Oh Jeez of. Of Business podcast in. On southbound. Two years to. Of a fifteen minute compensation this guy. I couldn't handle it I've no idea what I was doing. Sometimes, the opportunities present themselves into the habit of saying yes. Early on. Under the law and? It's just the situation. That's so people when you when you get into podcasting the firing. Entries a bit different. the world's changed is a feeling every mountain his dog has a podcast now. I think that. Are More went in with the intentions of. Gang. Doing it while. Not. That can be difficult when you're on sure and if you can actually. that. Early on. Your it's it's all about being able to handle situations. Iran. In the thank you make it hard for myself initialling. Over the years it is easier to handle easier to manage eventually I realized. The more I knew about some long that stocks to calm. Down a little bit vol them increase them. You learn more about yourself when you do I've learned so much about who I am as a person. My confidence has gone through the roof because I was always a quiet person I never spoke to anybody. On Earth is a conversation. I don't know what one of those is. So it always walls about improving myself. Massive self-awareness. Jeremy. Over the past three years. and. Yeah, there's just so much that. You can learn from starting a podcast. You wouldn't get from a lot of things about the online these days. I know a lot about who I am now to the that I started my show. So. Won't be the like top three things you would say that you learn because of podcasting. One of the main ones is. You get used to the things that you don't like about yourself when you can't change them. Things like how I sound. Modified on my own voice. I'm really not everything from the trade my accent away to realizing if I get to relax in a situation, the accent come straight back and no, you can't do. You talk like that. You sound like mopeds Wardi doing. And it's. Paying the hang on a second hang on a second you work on hiding your accent. A lot as much. Now just gets easier like it's hard to it's hard to pronounce. Things correctly. Talk Way. That balance between get your recording venues speaking go slight chatting teammates Maine's after a few drinks. So there's an element of. People have listened to this afterwards it's not a live conversation that no one's ever going to hear again. But I went through a phase of not listening to my show afterwards. Ended them didn't do anything. I just did them and then I walked away didn't listen. Bob Didn't do any of that stuff. I couldn't I couldn't. I hated attorney all my. Own. country. and. Founded and in a way I don't. I wouldn't removed it now. Okay. Well. It I tolerate it for the say to. The podcast. Interesting way to put it. tolerated. Bad around. Our signed the sound of my own. Voice. Sports. It's not that I can change. So I just kind of accepted same like you know what sometimes Little things happen within the show maybe that's a crackle maybe as a pop software main. Internet drops in now or advocate says. Again it's too late. Now you've recorded it, you can hate it or you can see if you can do something about it. You know maybe maybe you can chop out and it won't alter the flow of the conversation maybe maybe what cuts out a section because it's inbetween conversations and you've got low choice. Once or twice I got to rearrange all reschedule. Redo. Interviews because of that and Some, even say to me if he doesn't sound great doesn't sound riots. Let me know more than happy to back on and the military record in loads of people have said the happy to do that I think. I, think quality's important to a lot of people. So a lot of people sound quality is important. Sometimes it's nice. To have that, it's nice to have the guests say. If the sound isn't great. I'm happy to. Do again. Yeah. Sure. Okay. Because he was happening doesn't happen every week. You, kind of think. You know what? The the taking it sort and seeing this lay Yeah let's go. Let's do I'm happy to take the pressure off. May a little bit I can I can come through listening to it and go out sounds muddle through and a crackle and I call quite a Al Popley I though. The reschedule if the Sun was in grades are all the get it I the. Try Best Apollo bound over. Show that was great. But again, it's that you you learn what you can control what you can improve and got you learn what you want, and that's one of the biggest essence to me. You know I I now can sit down and edit my shows which involves listening to my shows Jimbo's listening to me. Never used to do that. We're now sit that when I go. It'll do just press play this listen to it'll be fine. Get through. It is probably the only part of the show sort of Crow Sas the I don't particularly enjoy and it's not because I don't editon I quite like having the control you know we. Do Low this is amazing. The amount of control over the PODCAST is fantastic. Why did I never do this when I started ohinouye hated how I sound Crazy for. Can Happen when it okay. What can I control? I. Control. peds except the amount of guests the I've had A. Don't you don't have a microphone. A. Okay So it it's Unless you're prepared to not interview people less they have the equipment and you make them sort of. Give them instruction old people that give the gas like masses, amounts of instructions and is Li-? I get eb than you kind of assume that they wouldn't do that, and then I only add one or two moments where that's happened and I've sat and I've gone sounds. Okay. It's not one hundred percent for I can understand what you're saying. Probably like. A whole point. So people can understand what you're saying. That's Kinda the idea anything more than that to be picky about. Is a bit light OCD should probably get back. Because because you don't know what their standards are. Let me my sets up is I've got a headset I've got my pizza. That's IT I. Don't really need much else. Are People like yourself, my flickers studio. Loads of people that that's fine. That's great. That works loads of people do that but I think like trying to force people. To do the. Only TV, you might as well, just INSA PODCAST as you're not picky about your sound quality, it's a bit weird if you're interviewing people who got lives outside of the show. Like. SPEC. A half the same setup as I was We we compensation with yourself once or as you saw sorta going account really force you to have like recording studio like I do. So one of my limits. Microphone that's enough for me because there's enough. Soundproof fins you north background noise reduction and give people, bits and pieces for most of its just courtesy thing. It's just You know you all recording. This is going out forever Do Rid that what you will I if people free reign as long as they are not always the Fox the it's like a radio show. Sam is important. Guest whereby by the dogs barking off way through. The funny thing is. The off and it becomes a bit of a joke within the shop then the. That looks patron goes maybe the funny parts. Help, the stuff talk about because what happens is like those little funny or knowing things pending on how you look at it does the things that people related all that happened to me when I was talking to grandma our something like that Madonna's came in or pooped on the four or whatever. I think it depends on your show. Oh my the dumpers turn on the. Not Out in the show depending on what you shows about. I think is the summons to be sad for what you'll limitations. Pads about sex with it you know if a dog barks navy end the show. Is that dog and we talked about at the end one sold of the important stuff son about the way again comes on your show. I feel inconvenienced someone about topic and maybe end when it's all like you're rounding off the show, the DOTCOM zone rapport rounding off the show. How do you take the out instead dog? So I think this I mean train goes past off with unusual probably do some about that. There's just a lot to be said for why you could set the standards too high. Unwind it. Now is we it because my standards? I guess more refined. For at the same time among accepting all the people have been different standards to make. An. was different I'm quite stolen so that that was difficult for me to. Get over. I you just today. We in is all coldness on my phone. Call it. Can over it be fine if you make it sound better after you've recorded it gourds. No you can you can make. You Fi- I told myself all up full even record. She's looking at me is redid video and I'm like. The My Pillow. Okay, let's do this thing. It's just is just hard when you listen to podcasts. And they oppose same issue. You know if some of the best in the podcast in world have guests style difference yours would you can still hit but you're gonna like not listen seems weird. Not GonNa. Listen what because we can hear you can understand you, but it sounds a bit off compared to the host or not. GonNa Bother. Adult know many that do that We think is like at the end of the day is all about I don't think the quality does matter. Yes. But the content of the conversation I, feel more important if there is a crack and their people will deal with it, it's like, okay whatever has long as overall content they can use tasks, golden. That's the rule I follow anyway. Yeah I mean again, everyone's different show right? If it's if the comedy show. Putting all in because you probably talk about it anyway made into a joke. If it's a serious show than you probably want to be a bit more careful with things that you know it'd be combs becomes learning about the history. The podcast is just a tool. It's all like the whole thing you've got to look at the industry that you're in. Not, just the podcast in landscape that the Union as well. You know if body show that was all fun and Games. Soon decided to throw something me right. That would be on the show. Because it's forty, four, forty from game show. Is going to happen of course is. Not. So the long struggle kind of the game you'll play Europe you stick to the rules of the game you're playing. Then I don't see an issue because if you're listening to. Delight Self Improvement type stores they'll big difference riots but if I Did talk show that was on Youtube you. Like a bit of a studio that's going on and. They have different rules they are. Tuitions they have different standards of a lot more going on anyway and I think that sometimes. Sometimes, you forget that sometimes, we forget that it's not just about the podcast the media if you will, it's Abou Yeah, the contents important. My version of content difference y'all's. would be different to other no. Joe bloggs down the road. There's GONNA show all about patents and then. I know. Debbie down the road show about shoes right I. think that. Value. In. Different from persons person from show to show and you know I I listen to shows just fall learning stuff. Now, some of my Joe's I listen to all over the scape is be entertainment is important just as jobs what that's all about is. People having a laugh both of them, they still in the news the other day back look into. The real world. This is. Good I can do this. So it's It's all relative isn't aids all different from person to person as long as you watch lightning industry on the Kosta world is well. I'll go the problem. You have shared ton of tunnel. Great value here like how do you like I think I just call this episode harder premium you guessed. To set an expectation I think they'll be a really good title. because. The soul more the? County change as well. You know and. It's hard because expectations of anything have gone down. I mean. Before. I don't bring up well before apps like Anka and before people could say face facebook lives and use those tafs, their download, the show rights, it's easier than ever. To have a podcast. So I think that? Not coons with an element. All okay. Everyone can do it. For. Van. Because everyone can do it. You've got to figure out how to most Dow, but how to find your place I think. Is a big difference between trying to stand out and trying to find your place in in the landscape of of shows. I think would it is you hit it right on the mountain not everyone can do it as an idea but. I feel I. Know for fact that everyone takes action to achieve the result. has an idea anyone could become podcast? Yes but. Start like or this is the new cool thing I want to have a podcast the next thing everybody in. Everywhere, on me, everybody's saying I should. But when this start to record a podcast, get behind Air Mike and they have nothing to say that coolness goes. With. Blake I've got nothing to say what was supposed to do, and some people literally take it to the extreme where the Gogi. If there's all like investment say thousand dollars something like get the road poor Cassar the dark Camden without board week is to the levels and all and the excellent Mike and they get the offer and all extra like thousand investment and they get behind magazines like. Why do I say? Yeah I don't know. It's is weird. I asked me went to things of. Looking at like the podcasting facebook groups and. Some of our house, my recall, the sole episode without starling. Light every day. You don't know how to introduce yourself. On your. Own podcast. Soon. We it. It seems to be weird bluffing. It's not easy because. If. You're starting the show starts now you all essentially can we're not we're on video would essentially you could be talking to yourself. Right and I think most people that's how I started the for Norway they don't know anybody or they're just like I wanNA talk next cool thing and then they go the introduction podcasts about themselves what they're gonNa do it and some people if they're really motivated, they get like four four episodes in and they're like I know other topics to talk about. and. Then my threshold is like a few can. At least make fifteen episodes on your cell phone do not get equipment because by the time you get your fifteen episode, you have things in control you're going to have a system that works for you and you can pump up podcast episodes like like that. Yes it was weird like a bit of a funny story is it took me a Yo before i. felt like I can call myself a podcast. There's a law. Of responsibility with the felt lie. Okay I'm just goofing around. Essentially, me iphone headset but that's how I started my show a recording mine on my phone, which is why. Allow Iro if you will when the guest how that iphone. Bull. Wall that goes into. Okay. Am I just around is a hobby or am I professional punk CASTA I it felt professional. And I didn't feel like I was ready. I, didn't feel I could really own the that I was a podcast. And I think that. I think the people need to consider the. People need to consider the. You're not a punk. CASTA. Just because you have a podcast. I think the. The needs to be a mole, the level that needs to be something the. Mall just lowers the ball for people people accounts to get started. Gives people a chance to. Get to that level because when you interview people that help people grow that pump costs, you realize there isn't the ball. You realize they call themselves podcasters. And that amazing now, do they have to call themselves something? A both Joseph podcast is were the level like I'm a Rockstar. Everyone else is just a podcast there. I think it's always on that. The oil film toy show bill film toy soldiers everything else is just that's why it's the same sort of thing like where. Do we go think we need people to start a podcast without the speculation or the pressure comes along with? An equally want to be humble enough to know that all people out there that have the same label is you have the same title as you. The how studios have guessed fly in? World divert different world, and yet they call themselves podcasters all they've got something that's. Encompassing comcast, but my door identify with the podcast. So it it's a different. The differ will then I think that people need to realize that podcasting if you WanNa take seriously you count. I don't want people to be off. Starts. But then have everything that comes along with. The people have been doing this for years while I feel like this is like all this warm while okay. We're all pastors but all missed together the needs to be like. You're a beginner all to hobby, right so bring me the time they go and then needs to be level right kind of serious now. People are actually listening. This is amazing. How am I thought I was entertaining for people to listen but demi go Anonymously Mo the level where it's Ok a monetize ing. Can Pay some of my bills with it and get equipment maybe organized studio. And is a different thing I. Mean I find it very difficult to pass some warn that have two people chatting over coffee. Seems sorta level of people have their guests fly into the studio once a week. and. An and the cold live. I must my own opinion I think there's a lot to come along with the expectations because. No one knows. Like no one knows what your Satchel is. No one knows what you do. So from the Al Assad looking in your show was God, the graphics. Amazing. That's check out the show. It's echoing people walking past birds flying overhead is to people without microphones talking with the phone in the middle of the room and every and it. Kind of a mess right for you compare that to people that are at the other end of the spectrum. This is the thing and it's not easy to do. You've got to find not baollots because someone if I was solicited, the are the sort of phone in the middle of the room. To. I wouldn't I wouldn't listen to get. Because I couldn't concentrate KABADDI. To Morse destructions. I couldn't manage. I. Couldn't manage that longer than. Five minutes. And then the people that say, well, only do this reform and all those things can manage your expectations that lays very hard to have a show that people can concentrate on right I'm expect to get. Loads of listeners. As, well, I you've got the way or what your expectations with your intentions are. If you want if you want a lot of listeners listening to your show. You've got to factor in. A show the every wall not actually wants listen to listen to. You know it's very, very difficult. Very difficult. I mean from around I, know when kind of come full circle and argued against my own point of it Because it's hard. But how can you expect the? So they're loads if distractions loads if things happening, how can you expect? To. I wouldn't expect to do well on the last. The title of the show is two guys over coffee. And then it Kinda makes more sense. That how many people would actually listen to AH compensation in a coffee shop. By. How many people would actually wants to do that I'm actually be in a coffee shop it seems a bit but then the people that do do that people that do and show does reasonably well in the Coppola listeners that poems and a lot of time in coffee shops, and they don't mind listening to people's conversations and it can work for it's more going to be. Like. A Talk Char. Rated podcast. It's not enough. People will sit that listen to it and absorb it and get value from it. If this. If the quality just isn't that Know so I think. There's a lot to be said for you want a show that really really well, you've got so low carb high quality show would. Know because I thought about doing. Outdoor podcast was an. Thaw by comic creative in. A Phase I went through mark it was a phase I'm going on a promise. I went through a phase of like. Be Too, if this data is outdoor show I thought. Was the best way of doing this what slight ch Also. Thing that I can do. Well, the right well, if it really wants to be a bit stupid about. I could still do it in the studio behalf icon sounds look sound like I was outside right you sound every now and again. You know. Who outside why there's a big flying overhead and it got to weird where it wasn't actually an outdoor show. It was made indoor with all the sounds and just got to be weird. You got some factor in. A Lot. All. You. Decide what you're going to be like, how when grow the amount of people that quit that shows is outrageous I did have been reached A. On punk casts before I thought. Okay. Well, if I wanted to stop being guest on shows, let's see what like the research Beta listening see the onstage line, the amount of shows that give walk off the white ten shows or like six months and they stopped and all making money yet you're not going to. Even, the people that like extremely well, they didn't get like five years. Before they even think about monitoring and this is going back why when it was easier to grow your audience? When the wasn't millions of shows. When a lot of people that listen to shows also have their? So I, think that it's Because of. People struggle and they do within upset so far is exactly why shows really well. And exactly why shows though it lasts it books. and. Those that can do all this and fine line the balance between everything that I've said, they're the ones that are going to be successful of it in whatever version of success. That is right. That's mony lifestyle form writes. All. Those that struggle those that don't make it, and that's what it comes down to managing the balance between all the all those things. First of all Mike, this truly has been very knowledgeable experience. You are like a wealth of knowledge. So if anyone wants to get in touch with you, how can they do?
