You know Why copes pipe pets beakers and it was like when i got over there i really was i jeans cowboy boots you know bandannas but it was still the same level of great science. That was going on so again it. Just kind ask to that death in wealth of who you are certainly seems to apply in your case that to be open minded about what the prospects might be because you went from. You know people basically in hospital settings to you know basically science. Yeah we'll buy I would sometimes go with my pi. We will have to inject the sheet with the prostaglandin hormone. And that would make dr in some of these places weaker by every day here in tennessee's of the locals year this They make sense but the forms you seeing on going down alcoa highway.

Take the opportunity if you get it. Be open to the possibilities of not staying in one way and go for right. Yeah that's huge. Did not limit yourself just because you think you're you should be one place if you have to stay in that thing again you said it best.

Nbc news correspondent care. Simmons brings us more reaction from london tonight. Silence from the royal family. After megan's bombshell allegation the racist comments were made before the birth of their first son. He won't be given security. It's not going to be given title and also concerns and conversations about how dark skin might be when he's born. What sarah several conversations a conversation with you with harry about how dark your baby is going to be. Potentially what that would mean or look like prince harry confirming the allegation. I'm never going to but at the time was oak ridge irish sharks today in the u. k. Many stunned we have full a black woman. She didn't get it very easy. Within the royal family. Meghan says she became so depressed. She asks for help. I just didn't want to be alive anymore. I said that. I needed to go somewhere to get help. And i was told that. I couldn't that it wouldn't be good for the institution. So were you thinking of harming yourself or you having suicidal thoughts yes. This was very very clear. She says harry was her only supports. If you zoom in what. I see is how tightly. His knuckles are grouped around mind. You see the whites of our knuckles because we are smiling and doing our job. But we're both just trying to hold on country to press reports. Say they never blindsided the queen. Another blindsided my grandmother. I respect for. The hurry describes a strained relationship with the british press and members of the royal family including his father who he says at one point wouldn't pick up his goals as for his relationship with prince. William the relationship is space one royal historian tonight tells us the palace will be in crisis mode how damaging the interview. I think it's very damaging. Actually they've made very serious allegations primarily of course it racism in the royal family and brian oprah says prince harry told her the unnamed royal who made the comments about skin color is not the queen or prince.
Harry and Meghan detail royal struggles, from discussions of baby's skin tone to suicidal thoughts
"Oh what an interview. Harry and meghan shocked everyone last night during their explosive. Sit down with oprah winfrey and the royal family may never be the same again. I'm going to try not to yell like crazy. Because i've been screaming all morning ever since i watched this last night. There is so much to discuss. We head to begin our top royals. Melanie bromley to the show. As oh my gosh i. It's almost like we don't even know where to begin. So let's do this before we dive. And let's take a look at the top bombshells of the night who could be given a title and also concerns and conversations about how dark skinned might be when he's born. What here's a conversation with you. With harry about how dark your baby is going to be. Potentially and what that would mean or look like conversation. I'm never going to shy. But at the time the time it was oak ridge. I respect sharks. Can you tell us what the question was. I'm not comfortable with sharing. Is he taking your calls. Now is a lot of work through that. I feel really let down. Because he's been through something similar. I always love him. But there's a lot of the top. I just had that conversation with harry. I don't want to be alive anymore. Yeah it was like these. Are the thoughts. That i'm having in the middle of the night. That are very clear. And i'm scared because this is very real. Did you make kate cry now. So where did that come from. It was a really hard week of the wedding and she was upset about something but she owned it and she apologize and flowers and a note apologizing. There's this invisible. What's what's what's termed or referred to as the invisible contracts behind closed doors between the institution and the tabloids if you as a family member a willing to wine dine and give access to these reporters than you will get better press. I think there's a reason that these tabloids have holiday parties at the palace. Okay now before we get into everything. We need to lease comment. That this part. The palace has not commented on the interview. Okay lots of mixed feelings about this. Where do we start. Let's do this first impressions now first impression. My impression is that this is the most damaging interview that we've ever seen about the royal family if you thought diana's interview in nineteen thousand nine hundred was bad that was just the accusation or talking about infidelity. This is way bigger. Somebody just blew up the role side. Yes who would think oprah tyler. Perry could expose the monarchy. I thought she was ready. She was ready ready. This has been a two year plus experience for them and they finally got to tell their side of the story because as we heard she was silenced. She said she was silence. My was literally. I was just screaming at least with melissa heard it. I was like screaming. I just was in shock. I i thought she was gonna take off the gloves and do a fight but no no no. She had those gloves on. She was like. I don't know this phrase phrases that she dropped every bombshell that she possibly could have and it was one after another we kept saying like. That's the biggest. I mean we were just riveting. This is going to go down in history with all the other ones. I mean we're talking race. We talking family problems. Everything i was like. This is so good. Okay back to you how to do exactly the same. It was so shocking. Every single thing that came out of her mouth and you have to bear in mind. The royal family exists on this idea of mystery. We know a little bit about what's going on behind palace who we don't know everything. What meghan and harry yesterday to people who were in the inner sack who did is that exposed the lot they said.

American japanese lives because the the predicted deaths of americans alone whereas in the two hundred thousand within a months and that's not including the japanese populace and we saw back in some of the other islands that they were willing to commit suicide before. Surrender to the americans. Oh yeah we just talked about that. I think it was last week. Peleliu last yeah fucking crazy find themselves off cliffs and so the so both historical groups have it point to be made they reject the other side revisions reject the fact that it did save lives and their traditional side projects. The fact that you know we we truly did do it to intimidate the russians saying hey look at the. We'll get this motherfucking weapon. Come step with us. You'll get fucking newt fair and prepare exactly like step to us. You try to spend that tommy believing yours. You're gonna you're gonna get a face full of duke. Yeah you spread that calm you blame for yours. Get fucking nuked. So that's how our nuclear program was really leaked was through claus. And that's that's the weird fuck in history of oakridge this secretive city that no one really knew about like everyone knew about but no one knew what was happening in it and just some of the weird compromises the weird decisions that the american never made good american government made deciding the city and it shows how in some ways we adopted communist believes in you know not segregated tiered housing arrangements based off of one's position and also shows of the failures of early. You know early. America will not early america but know developing america where we did have racist beliefs but at the same time this bomb helped save. Thousands upon thousands of lives may maybe potentially millions vehicle to japanese dam. That was the most communist perfect kentucky. Night communist no. That was great. Oh my but ache Bear and we will will. And you like i guarantee it. We will have you on again. This has been a fucking black man. This was a pleasure. And i honestly like big skew strict this much beer own. Yeah same here hanging out with you guys even before the podcast started. Talk for a minute and you.

"Totally different from tennessee. Is guys from fucking boston. Come get the manhattan project named after the manhattan project originated. Fellas like a small building within manhattan. That's how that name came about. And so you had new york accents. California accidents washington ash accents mid western accents. And so like all the guys from like the glorious notch. Syllabi lack wireless. We don't take can lead year around. Scooter gave you get some weird like clean-shaven nicely dressed new yorker walking. Peta hell creating you get the shopkeeper. Pop a shock and rackers backed away. You can't freeze you from enjoying this way more than i should. i'm not gonna. i'm not like my legitimate. Reasons dislike agreed because you had a bunch of random idiots common in from out of town by all your shit at eight and your kids in sports they would see like these big train just dry rolling on by to knoxville head to a full of supplies and rain of material and nobody was on them. They just who was getting special treatment. That's true yeah i didn't. They're thinking we're just down the road like what's so special about this new fucking city. It makes sense. Yeah well so when a bridge was first created it was called site x until like and it was i over time it was called aggreage named after locational sort of in and like there. Was this one story where this one lady like. Some some shop in knoxville said. Hey where are you from. He's okay what do you do. She goes she goes. I couldn't tell you. I don't know what i do and even if i did what i did i couldn't tell you she's which it besides the absolutely bad shit crazy sense of security and secrecy with an oak ridge. I'm so focused on like these kids. Sports teams. i'm me. Just me just thinking aloud. I'm gonna say they're their elementary school. Team was called the site x agents and all their uniforms were just solid black and they just like fuck these other teams over. And everybody's like oh my god. They're so intimidating okay. Let me so when he gets drunk. And we're recording. He focuses on one thing and keep back to ask how funny it is. Ask me. i don't by talking about all weird shit. Why gone oh. I just had something. My train of thought just went off and bridge. That i do that. I'm on my tenth year right now up you can literally there was another story got affected. remember it. i. I literally thinking like oh this would be a great thing to add to it because it wasn't a my notes because it just popped into line. It just vanished again. Oh so you had just talked about the lady She she was talking about where she was from. And how if she could tell them what she was doing she but like back. I'll remember rick sooner or later but it's the churches that's right so there was a lot of religious group in nineteen forty and a lot of people are christians and so the oak ridge built. The first church was called lose called the church on the hill. Where for them. Something that matter. And it was just this little white church and cyclists each and so basically you had shit tunnel of people from all you know all different types of locks of faith and different religions in the group team jewish and whatnot and so they're all fighting over this one building and so essentially they would end up getting to you. Had to essentially the military police like you have to have a minimum of minimum of one hundred person congregation to be granted access to a building. A lot of these churches were in local like mary's like the theater in people's houses. And that's how a lot of these started and it really helped with. Everyone had to keep secrets. But you know church ever was considered a congregational family and it really helped with like dealing with these. Secrecy is always. That's what a lot of people said. Dude the minister of the christchurch new every government secret every just about the catholic church that must popped up there sooner or later. I didn't read about the catholic. There have been more any any time someone came in. This guy's hands are shaking. Like i don't want to talk to the fbi and police. You just hold silence. Nineteen eleven just stage. He was an agent all along. God just like you say nuclear one time. I'm putting a bullet through your fucking skull. God approved. I love it this. I'd never give me a second. I'm sorry no you're good. You're like ten beers. There's three me fast break debt. So you didn't even notice. I already left again. Turns to me and he goes. Hey i'll be right back. Like just miming it. He's like good positive Jesus christ so what. I looking over your notes. I see that you've got some shit here about potential spies like buys it. That are that. They're aware of on the american government when like Offending people to actually hire into grid. They basically let no-one through who they suspected to be a spy but they made one mistake. They trusted the british too much san. That always gets me. So the british had a grip scientists that this end over to creation a couple i in richmond and The other place. Because i can't remember the name of it and and the americans okay we. Y'all did a background check. But we're going to do a background check and a minute new. These guys are fucking shit there. There are best friends. You don't need to worry about them at all. Because i you know what i just to shut you up okay. We'll background check them. What are the people that slipped through. Their net was a gentleman by the name of class fought s and he was he basically was a communist and he reported pretty much everything that happened in oak ridge back to the back to the communist government and he he ended up in los alamos at one point and.

"Interment camps are completely different. Things oh yeah so speaking of that just a railroad and goff entirely on the topic. I'm planning a trip to the What what was it called the dugway. Interment camp yes. Yeah we got one of those just in our just in our state right here. If i find anything cool i'll send you the pictures. Here's the funny thing about that again. Another sidebar today entire conversation. We're just getting off topic. That's what our podcast is. All about some of the worst things i've read about the camps themselves were particularly awful. They were nowhere near compared to the japanese. Pow camps or the jewish jewish holocaust camps and whatnot. But what was really bad. That like neighbors of these japanese japanese americans would sell their business excel. Japanese american businesses and land. Because they're for like three years and so we can get a quick bucket just sold their land or business someone else. Yes so you know. I gotta i gotta emphasize it wasn't. It was nowhere near as bad as again as the japanese interment camps or a japanese. The german concentration camps. What we did some fucked up shit was still back to my Mike great grandfather worked in a german german italian. Pow camp up in idaho. He had some fun stories about that. I will talk about some sometimes. We treat you know over prisoners pretty great compared to like the germans whatnot yes was was basically teaching them trade different trades and like education and a bunch of either when they were shipped off. They came back or they just stayed. Please let me be. Podcast loft just sitting there listening about that. Yeah let's see. I'll talk to my grandmother. She's got a lot of sources newspaper articles journals and stuff from it such and so like there was one time near the end of the war. This high-ranking scientists. I'd have this in my notes but i remember reading about it actually i i listen. Ges oral history. He basically marched up to one of the higher ups. And said you're gonna tell me what's going on here. I'm going to quit. And he said and higher up basically said. I can neither confirm this. You're correct i eat. He basically he's yeah he's like i can't say that you're right but i'm i'm djing waking your direction really hard. He's here not right. But you're definitely not wrong. Exactly exactly and i when we finally dropped the ball on here shema. Which was the. We dropped two different bombs. The first one was the uranium bomb which was on here she made a second was the second one. Was the plutonium bomb on nagasaki. And the difference between them is the here. Shema bomb used a platoon uranium bullet that slammed into another pc radium which caused critical mass plutonium. Bomb implosion. they they know how to release like did the Tony bomb to go off. Because tony minutes a byproduct of enriching uranium and so basically what they did was they need a sphere plutonium and put a shit ton of like c. Two which is like early pharmacy. Four alive it was a malleable explosive. And they basically made a bigger sphere around it with your plutonium sphere suspended in between it and then all of the like they had detonation caps. All around the city to and then they ignited which would include the plutonium. Which would cause critical mass. It sounds like something that i could put together like doing but if these things together make a big boom. Here's the funny thing in. Our government ran an experiment and basically gave the library to to average college students or something like that and like build a nuclear bomb. They were able to do with the information at hand. You're a nuclear bomb. Becomes to produce is either able. It's enriching uranium enriching uranium. As when i told again i could be completely wrong. His nuclear physicists or chemists but ace lamer disclaimer. The way i have been told the way. I understand it is basically the way you get. The enriched uranium is basically you spend uranium really hard and it it will fling off the heavier uranium particles in and they basically catch those. And that's how you make the rich uranium very much. I mean i m s or a nuclear physicist but i have a very deep interest in both of those topics. And you're pretty much right. Yeah they basically put it in a giant centrifuge. These and one of these big carnival rides where you got them. What the one that it's like. Why the fuck did they let me on that. When i was seven ratio forty feet in the air or something like that and and i just got on top that catches you rich uranium. And that's what they were doing in all three cities. I don't like this is bullshit and thing is that's why it takes so long. Like you enriched uranium. I think there's an easier process now but like nineteen forties is basically like a lot like contact the local circus. Let's spin this bitch. Put a fair deal on its side. We're going day. Babe laid tina perfect comparison. You heard it here first to make a nuke you all you need is a babe played a little bit of uranium so Like i said by the end of the war. It was sort of like the worst kept secret with in the cities outside. The city's no-one fucking knew about it. Like they just knew. These places existed A really interesting things that Knoxville tennessee was was the closest large city by krige and knocks billions. I think that's how you would say it. Yeah i like that. Knoxville's die something absolutely fucking headed grinch people And they could easily tell them apart by you saw. Do you walk down. The street and his pants and shoes were just caked in mud. That dude summer rich. This guy is fucking like stormed. The beaches of normandy..

"Known as bill. Basically two straight up dead pants and goes. I can't tell you if you're right or wrong. Let's burn the stuff you have. Who's bill there is no like i couldn't discuss and like propagating things. If they were lower level only the really high levels sh- really was going on. The funny thing is though by the time by the time we started doing actual nuclear tests. It was basically held sacred with sorted. Knew what we were doing. It's just that they weren't allowed to talk about it. Yeah it's like once you see all those mushroom clouds popping up over the hill kinda offi sits like a. It's like a appreciate. Ah catholic church. Everyone knows that he's doing a little boy's bathroom. Like the nazis who everyone knew what the jewish world it one hundred percent and. I'm glad you mentioned we'll talk about this after the war even then maybe maybe only after i beat the shit out of my family and i- drunkenly cry about it to my wife as ten years drink days and so it's sorta help keep morale up a lot of these so the government employment implemented a lot of social programs within the city. They opened up a theater. And of course the first thing they showed was very patriotic. As you do this and they just continued to do like they were hold dances and concerts. Hell before and by the local By the locals and a bunch of the dances they would have you know. Popular music played and people could interact. They give out beer and a lot of people that a lot of things with weight and what they did. But we're that secrecy also came some downsides. I really big example was is that Several people were killed at the gate of oak ridge for various reasons. Why it was only a slight downside. Yeah only only lost like forty people that they they wouldn't just like if someone just walked up to the fence they just wouldn't go. Hey you're not supposed to know about this place you're going to die. Should just ask fast questions later. It wasn't like that was one example. They were about a plumber or a metalworker came was called to help fix very important problem. That was ever explained really and He came up to the wrong gate. And they're like hey you're security info on your bad. Your guest is on the other is on the other side of the bridge at that. Gate is doubts about a forty five to fifty minute detour to get back to that location. And so. I don't have time for this. This is sort of an emergency. I'm going to go ahead and go like surf. You go past escape. We will be forced to shoot you and the gentleman's job to to you can't stop me. That's and dedication to the craft fucking pike's to fix shitter logged essentially and he just goes in gaza look more gangster style popped back exactly right as you said gangster style. I did the the ham thing with the gun. Held to the cy sideways. For this bitch. Man so what more about the Like wizard were there any other events that you would recorded that where people just getting shot for entering. Uh so that's one i got. I know there was other ones. That happened I never really got into the military files because some of them are really hard to get to talk to washington. Dc get into those files or to agree which admittedly is only like two hours away from me but like it's two hours how to get in my car and drive that far rotary exact to potentially get murdered trying to oakridge after the war took like three years and they opened it up to public city. Because you know dropped. It's sorta hard high too secret. You don't say weird you ever archive dot org. No i use mostly jay store in my colleges archive and then like a one of the books that i got some of my research out of elders. Two books what was called behind the fence the other one is called pluto. Pia which is it's a whole book. Comparing american and russian nuclear cities like where we had nuclear plants and whatnot. That's a beautiful fucking erection on so far. Here's the here's the full title for pluto. Pia nuclear families atomic sydney's and the great american plutonium disasters. Let i it talks about the construction of nuclear cities. The life within these new cities some of the propaganda propagated by both russian and americans and then some of the ridiculous disasters that happened within them. Beauty right up your alley. All the prostitution. Another one is like behind the fence. Which is solely focused on grij. And that's where i got some oral histories from just a lot of really interesting. And i can't just gives you crazy shit. You just hear about like. I'm so constantly. These people were being like tested for lie detectors and whatnot and secrecy was just a stay night. Lie detector tests. Essentially you go into work like rain. They would randomly stop people on the street to see their credentials for like random drug tests. Yeah for gonna lie detector test more than my work. Drug tests like this documented cases where like military police because again this entire area. The entire city was owned by the military military and Like a group. Vp's would just walk up to a person's. I can't see her credentials and you have to wipe out this little carnivore badge and say i'm know i'm definitely not a spy. You sound real guilty. When you're saying that i certainly not a commie. I'm sure that that was going to back then. Yeah i'm certainly not a communist. And i'm certainly not a nazi and i'm also not japanese..

"You got a doghouse. Like they're playing was in again. This is strictly a quote a negro village within sight But that didn't work out because again. The city was expanding so large. Okay you're going to have to live outside the city fence. She pushed him out. Further and further. Some okra of the oakridge was extremely basically. This role mountain land and i think was like twenty minutes away so the city could expand. Pretty you know pretty comfortably without running into anyone. But soon as that starts happening people would have to. You know and still a bridge. I don't think it's ever expanded into an town yet. Sense to my knowledge so the more german and white you were the bigger house you got taken away from this. Well funnily enough huggy cure a german. They're actually sort of suspicious of you unless you're one of those jewish scientists in the area and this was sort of a melting pot of culture. They had people from washington california new york the parts of the south people from you know the mid mid western ouija region as long as you had the credentials to end the skill to being agreed. They will put you in there. Of course if you weren't southern white the more the more jewish in white house all out. That's okay i'm slightly. You just got a drop of jewish blood and so one of the funny things. I found interesting. Was it sort of resembled. Ussr era you know housing. You know depending on who you were. What your position was in the society and your job where you live. All those higher ups within the nicer apartments in the us are if you're factory worker you'd be put in an apartment or some sort classic best. This is dick yalies as bad as this and the funny thing is crying. Missile interesting crisis statistics within krige areas. Where the dormitories which were extremely high density areas and small square. Mileage crying was higher is usually schroeck. Lower wage workers theft and whatnot and and sort of shows. You know high high density populations you know like the crime. In of course it didn't compared to the ussr. Cry where you had prostitution rings and shit going on in those in these like the construction of these nuclear villages but it shows how this compact area rule is really getting to people. And then then we get to the secrecy. Yes i save a lotta people the best word about histories the secrecy and decides great. I'm gonna. I'm gonna quote that you heard it here. First genocide is when so you ought to be. You'd have a big background check on to agree before you got hired yet. A background check to make sure you didn't have not to your communist ties more last j. o. And so when mating. But when a person i entered a day were subjugated to a lie detector. Test sometimes Rain lie detector tests just to see now houses it and whatnot and then when you first moved there you also had to do you all try to sign a declaration of secrecy which basically was a waiver that says you talk about your job to anyone including family members or your spouse so angry snow. Nothing i mean. That's currently what we're doing with this podcast because my wife doesn't know about it it's fine is my my extremely religious parents. Never find out about this podcast. I'm in the clear. I'll still be in the will be shot man. I told everyone perfect. Good and we'll. The secrecy actually took big tall. Oak ridge actually had an extremely high rate of divorce There was a study that was conducted in it contributed to change an economic and the social economic changes within the city as well as how women being given actual jobs within the city. And i disagree with that it was. It was definitely played a role in that secrecy from your spouses and family members and co workers really had to take a mental toll on the field. Back up a quick minute. You mean to tell me that keeping secrets from someone you're married to benefit girlfriend constantly d- my relationships born lies. Who's who's isn't this point. Everything's just my My browser history. Thank you very and so. Here's a really funny thing. So i've gone through a bunch of oral histories given by people who into krige one of them. Was this woman maim missa dug in and she remarks about the secrecy as such. I remember asking a little boy who has about seven or eight years old. I guess where he come from. He said. I'm sorry. But i can't give you that information. Even the children mind secrets i need. This isn't this isn't i kissed susie susie who behind the church now. It's i can't tell you where i come from. I'm sorry i wish that he just he responded goes bitch listen i tell you i gotta kill you pretty much. The wave off the fuck out of here. It is picture this kid with scars on his face. The most horrigan will face on it. I'm sorry i can't tell you that. He's not scruff on his face by shaving it with a knife he just has a child seis mall view s uniform as small. Now get the fuck out of my way cigar honor on her arm. Get the fuck outta here get questions. Even what's even more interesting. Coworkers worked. Talk talk talk about like what. They're doing dr abbas he was a scientist worked within the white k plant which was one of the the nuclear facilities there and he was going over the theories of what he thought was going on with an oak ridge and he rodion whiteboard and he said nobody discussed openly. What we were doing. I remember. I had been here a few days when dr film. A co worker of his wasn't dormitory on road out. Some quesions to set bill. It looks like this is just to check with you. Well dr.

"When it's done the same. The funny thing is that it was mathias. In you know these people were were very like nato the wartime ulm we're employment groups in wartime construction groups. They're not go ahead and use them all and the literally just more or less forced into using them and so the original plan for oak ridge call for thirteen thousand. People live there in the consideration of towns and whatnot and minor cities and forties. That's a decent sized city. It's nothing like you know. Raleigh or california. Some of the season is by the after three years they are already at seventy five thousand and so the construction of the area or does that mean a lot of the stuff was just hastily built and thrown together. I mean so. It didn't pay fruits at the time. So was this like people were aware of growing city or it was just like the government was kind of notifying people. Hey move to these cities so the way to get into the city. Because if he were recruited by the government they wouldn't know about it The people who really knew about oakridge more knoxville people who've knoxville tennessee. And i'll get into later but they are very much. They just knew that there was a cd out there or a military complex and they were taking all their ship and they were always beating them a chess tournaments in highschool these fucking oak ridge. Kids down smart sexually construction started. They had three forms of housing archie. Technically four and i'll get to the fourth one here in a minute. So the first one was dormitories and apartments and within the first year they had over three three thousand houses built and they had they don't they group them into almost like suburbs. You had housing complex housing complexes sinner of like almost like a small town hall and sydney sydell center in these housing complexes and when they first started they had three dormitories and roughly twenty seven hundred houses built by the end of the war. The toys alone number eighty five forty four. When you were sitting this up like you know. Last time we talked to you. I was imagining like You know fifteen cabins like demands. Maybe a mess hall balloon city. Damn this air in the seventies that the suburb blah. That i talked about they were like these guys knew about ridge at that point and were like we're crash into a nuclear reactor. It made sense for me after. I did my research on like the hijacking a few weeks ago. Oh it's a city but like vertu growth that bulking quickly and just a matter of what you said a year or two three three years. Jesus they had. They had eighty two new dormitories apartments in under three years. I ve infrastructure was so bad there that they didn't have paid through and it was all mind that was actually things that everyone no matter. All the other shitty things that had happened was that hype mud that that is just not built. Like four cabins is here. Just focus on paving our roads through logs in the road. Anything grapple bodies whatever the The sidewalks plagues essentially never muddy. Wouldn't it sounds like a like. Oh fuck what. Is it not waco but it sounds like a really shitty colt more like a really low funded cult i shared on the american government. Little bit let. Let's look at near russian version of their nuclear cities worse. They use political prisoners and forced labor cities. At what point the government control what it was the prisoners like there was a constant. They were starving people in the streets. There was a lot of death from starvation in the military force. They're they're bared could be considered a ghetto for less. Meanwhile these damn americans would like step in mud. I did you know miracle crappy crappy shit with know segregation and whatnot and today get the russians. They killed everyone from bill. Hey we don't talk bad about the. Us government on this show is non pressure points so the rachel plan is going to be a cd had one area for african americans and the other area for caucasians. Well the city was grow. I grew so fast. The swiftly abandoned that and said yeah. I knew african americans to live outside the city and commute she. She's also we're not gonna give you a bus. You fuck even get buses and whatnot but more or less but instead of you can live inside the fence outside of. We'll give you a bus but you have to sit in the back of it and there's no air conditioning. It's really you really bumpy road. Good old nineteen forties america so There were three types of houses. You could get type house. Aide type c type dean tech house. Be and all of them. Were type of anyway. It was really small and that type house. Diva was really big. So going from a lot larger. He's basically on houses. Everything was pre everything was prefabbed and connected on site at bridge. And the way that you like where you was decided on three major factors. The first one was your family size. So if you're just there by yourself you live in the dormitory. If he had a wife you might live in the dormitory. You might live in an apartment. Then the second was your mulholland actually Yes city so like your position in the facility. If you were just a lonely janitor you'd almost be in with your family or a small apartment with your family team. Were important important. Task was not better position. Lived in such as like if you were higher up. Maybe nuclear engineer. You live in houses and depending on your family size that would determine where you would live in. What type house you again. The the third factor was race. If i'm just about to make a joke like and if you weren't white.

Posted up those if anybody is interested in seeing there beautiful beautiful cars which i was able to work on that one the sunday in which was robert car lengths car. I mean i got to see pictures of the documentary and michael crap. I wish i was able to be a part of that team. It's fucking so in typical. Dna fashion We have better to talk about a research project into the city based around the manhattan project. One of three yet. We now a couple of weeks ago. I mentioned oakridge which will be one that the one of the main ones bear talks about that I mean it's all yours take it away man. Philipson will probably just pop in and out and talk shit every once in a while interrupt you go to give a little. Bit of background on shot tennessee. You which is part of the need bombs were created. I gotta talk about the manhattan project and the manhattan project was started by a couple of german and austrian scientists who were chased out of germany during world war right before world. War two and gentleman by the name of alexander sash and again. I probably butcher that name. I'm not very good with german. Jewish names a. You're good we don't know how to pronounce fucking anything on this show. So don't sweat. Well he he. Sort of realized that the nazis atomic bomb and so they had no idea what they knew all. This could do shit ton of damage so they tried for a little bit to get the government attention and ultimately failed and so they go to our einstein. You know they're real genius. Man not never heard who is that some kind of immigrant and basically k. You need to talk to after about this. And so he signed the letter. Basically saying hey. The nazis to build a bomb era can wipe out unknown damage and so not a concentration task him cyanide. Et mustard gas. It's not the flame thought. What could it be. what else is there and so. Fdr almost immediately calls him his cabinet and says we got to do something and of immune hadn't project is born and in eighteen. Forty two general lease groves approves the creation of oak ridge along with richland washington and oh shoebox one in Not san antonio. Oh shoot there. Was one in nevada yell. It's literally tested nuke button. The nukes ad. Oh fuck not tone about. They don't know it's it's it's almost that's what it this is why we have a historian on so that he gets up and so they They created three cities. Rachel and bridge and los alamos. Each one word literally secret cities they popped up out of nowhere and Pretty much grew overnight in a grid when creating a grid the kicked out hundreds of farmers of from their homes and basically said young. We're not going to tell you why you got. Yeah two weeks maybe out. Who would have thought that the government could move quickly on something. These farmers alike like we're gonna compensated. It's not gonna be compensated. Forgive me about three fifty. You're supposed to have two weeks to get out but sometimes that doesn't happen. You're going to get a week biggest. Fuck out exactly. Yeah into the immediately start construction on oak ridge in these three cities. And you'd think that you know. The creation of the most powerful terrifying weapon of all time would transcend race in boundaries. But no they were pretty racist in the workforce in richland a gentleman by the name of matthias who was in charge of building richland basically refused use any labor that wasn't white and was essentially forced into it was they started falling behind schedule and he was quoted staying something along. The lines of maui need a third segregation camp for the hispanics or the mexicans pick. They can't forget. Have moving the blacks and whites and can have complete aggression. In that sense. I was gonna say. That was one thing that i read about it was. It really surprised me that they were. I mean obviously for the time it probably was acceptable. But when i first read that they were insisting on it being a segregated cities i was like what the fuck and then i was like. Oh well this is the forties but say the new doesn't care what code of your skin is because it's gonna be the same color.

What Happened at America's Secret Atomic City?
"Putin. Today's episode was brought to you by the new Capital One saver card with which you can earn four percent cashback on dining and entertainment. That means four percent on checking out that new restaurant everyone's talking about and four percent on watching your team win at home. You'll also earn two percent cashback at grocery stores and one percent on all other purchases. Now when you go out you cash in what's in your wallet? Welcome to brain stuff. Production of iheartradio. Hey, brain stuff loin Vogel bomb here in September of nineteen forty two US army, Lieutenant General Leslie groves commander of the Manhattan project. Those secret US crash effort to develop the atomic bomb faced a critical decision. The project needed to produce uranium-235 an isotope of uranium who's unstable nucleus could be easily split trigger efficient chain-reaction and release enormous amount of destructive energy, but that would require a massive complex manufacturing process involving tens of thousands of workers which needed to be kept secret to thwart interference from spies and saboteurs. But the question was where those priscilla's possibly be hidden U S officials had already identified potential sites in several parts of the country, but all of them had drawbacks Shasta dam in California. For example, was too close to the Pacific coast and this Volna rebel air attack in several locations in Washington state would have required construction of long power lines to provide the massive amounts of electro. Needed for the work site in Illinois near Chicago was also out officials didn't want to be close to a big population centers since the potential health risks of the work were not clear, and it would have been easier for enemy Asians to blend in around a city. So instead groves quickly settled upon fifty two thousand acre. That's twenty one thousand Hector site in rural eastern, Tennessee later expanded slightly not only would it be inconspicuous to anyone outside of the sparsely populated area. But it was also close to hydroelectric plants operated by the Tennessee valley authority, which could supply the enormous amounts of electrically that the plans would require it was the perfect place to build both the Clinton engineer works, which would be the atomic complex and secret city to house the workers the government decided to call the secret city oakridge because it sounded quote, sufficiently bucolic and general according to an article in a nineteen sixty nine government review of the project, not long after choosing the area, the US government quietly started moving small farmers who had land on the site paying them compensation, but not telling them why then came trainloads full of construction equipment and building materials construction crews quickly erected the buildings that would comprise the nondescript we named campus as well as. Thousands of houses for scientists and workers. Many of the homes were be one flat tops, a designed fashion from prefabricated panels and roofing to save construction time building the secret industrial facilities and housing for workers cost around one point three two billion dollars. That's about eighteen point five billion in today's money that amounted to sixty percent of the Manhattan, project's total budget over the next few years oakridge grew into a community of seventy five thousand people. We spoke with de Ray Smith, a retired historian for the UAE twelve national security complex who also is the historian for these city of Oak Ridge and a columnist for the Oak Ridge or a local newspaper Smith explained people came from all over the world. Many of the scientists were Hungarians a lot came out of Germany and Great Britain. He explains that others were recruited for the Clinton engineering works by big US companies working on the Manhattan project who scoured campuses if US colleges and universities for bright students with needed science and technical skills. For example, a young chemist named Bill Wilcox who was approached by an Eastman Kodak recruiter in nineteen forty-three later recalled that he was only told that the job was some sort of secret war work. He said I asked where I'd be working. He wouldn't say it was secret. I asked what sort of work. I'd be doing. He wouldn't say it was secret Wilcox eventually ended up at the Clinton engineer works. According to Smith, those who turned down jobs might end up being drafted into a special engineering detachment of the US army. And sent to Tennessee anyway. Those atomic workers arrived at a place shrouded in secrecy, locals knew something mysterious was going on at the site. But only those who are part of the mission were allowed inside past. The guarded gates on the access roads, the atomic facilities themselves were surrounded by digital security. The work itself was highly compartmentalized. So that most people knew only about the small portion of the effort that they themselves were working on. And only a select few new. The overarching mission was to help make the atomic bomb access to buildings other than the one you were working in was highly restricted to keep information from getting out oakridge became a self contained community with most everything that its workers needed secret city had stores movie houses, a high school a Bank, a three hundred bed hospital, tennis and handball courts and even its own Symphony Orchestra led by a Manhattan project. Scientists people who live there tended victory gardens raised families, and led what was pretty much normal American existence. That is except for the secrecy that surrounded them in their work. A billboard reminded workers. Let's keep our traps shut. They knew they had to be cautious. Not to say anything about their jobs to anyone even their own spouses, a young scientists told one of the first reporters tried about the subject when Louis Feldstein would sit around the dinner table, and the strain was terrible. But it was all in the difficult effort of producing uranium-235. There's only a tiny amount of the stuff zero point seven percent in uranium or most of which is uranium two thirty eight which doesn't fit in as easily and above such as little boy. The one dropped on Hiroshima required. One hundred and forty one pounds. That's sixty four kilograms of uranium-235. You have to separate a lot of material to get that much to thirty five to solve that problem. The Clinton engineer works y twelve plant used special devices called Cal trans which utilized the electromagnetic separation process developed by Nobel winning physicist Ernest Lawrence, the university of California, Berkeley, the Cal trans used heat and powerful magnets to separate the two isotopes and then to collect just the uranium-235 isotope because it's so much lighter in weight together. Enough uranium-235 for the projects purposes, the y twelve facility employed twenty two thousand workers to run one thousand one hundred fifty two Kalua trans literally around the clock. Meanwhile, another part of the works. The x ten graphite reactor. Used neutrons emitted from uranium-235 to convert uranium two, thirty eight into an isotope of a different element. Plutonium two thirty nine another easily fissionable material suitable for making Tomek bombs as myth explains after x ten demonstrated that the process could work the actual plutonium used to make Fatman the bomb dropped on Nagasaki was produced in the b reactor at the Hanford engineer works near Richmond, Washington. Finally on August. Sixth nineteen Forty-five the world witnessed the results of the secret cities. Labor's when the United States dropped an atomic bomb containing uranium-235 produced there on the Japanese city of Hiroshima the Knoxville, Tennessee, new sentinels front page headline proudly proclaimed atomic super bomb made it oakridge strikes Japan that wasn't completely correct though, the uranium-235 came from Tennessee parts, the bomb were made it three different plants. So that none of them would have the complete design the destruction at Hiroshima and Nagasaki was horrific, and it was a or perhaps the turning point of the war. After the war. The various parts of the once secret, Tennessee, atomic complex were split up part eventually was reborn as the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, which helped pioneer the field of nuclear medicine present isotopes for use intriguing cancer and as diagnostic tools in addition to doing cutting edge research areas ranging from nanotechnology to wireless, charging of electric vehicles and other portion became the twelve national security complex, which produced components for tens of thousands of thermonuclear weapons in the us arsenal during the Cold War and leader helped disassemble US and former Soviet nuclear weapons third part is now the site of the east Tennessee technology park, though, there's no evidence that German or Japanese spies ever managed to infiltrate the Clinton engineer works. A Soviet spy named George co Ville did manage to get a job there. And apparently passed along information about the atomic work to the Soviets in two thousand seven he was honored posthumously with a hero of the Russian federation medal.
