"These people to take an egg and make it stand on its tip. They try every which way, but they botch every attempt. They give up. And then look at Columbus, who taps the egg on the table, gives it a flat bottom and voila, the egg stands up. And that is why the egg of Columbus moved into English to mean something that's really easy when you know how. Oh, I love it. That's a great trick to play. Do remember children. You're going to try and do this. Boil the egg first. Otherwise, you end up a point. A lot of mess on the table. With a boiled egg that really works with a raw one, it can not work quite as well. How about a poem do you have a poem for us today? Yes, I do. When I finished today's podcast, I'm going to a funeral. Another one, I go to a lot. I've reached that age. This is a friend of mine who died comparatively young. I met him 22 years ago. He invited me to join him and some friends of his in Paris to mark the death of the great Irish playwright poet Oscar Wilde. And Oscar Wilde, born 1854, died 1900 and hotel in Paris on the 30th of November, in 1900. So a hundred years later, 30 2000 my friend was called Robert Palmer. It was funeral. I'm going to. He invited us to gather in the very room where Oscar Wilde died, to raise a glass to the memory of Oscar Wilde. I mean, he's looking for a poem to read at the funeral. The poem I'm going to read you is not the poem I've chosen to read at the funeral. But this poem is a well-known poem by Oscar Wilde. It's called requiescat. And it was written in memory of Oscar Wilde's younger sister, who died not long before her tenth birthday in 1867. And according to her mother, usually, that was her name. She died of a sudden effusion of the brain, and Oscar was only 12 at the time. And he was inconsolable when his sister died. Anyway, I'll go out, wrote this poem in the memory of his sister in 1881. Tread lightly, she is near. Under the snow, speak gently, she can hear the daisies grow. All her bright golden hair, tarnished with rust. She that was young and fair, fallen to dust. Lily like, whiter snow, she hardly knew she was a woman, so sweetly she grew. Coffin board, heavy stone, lie on her breast. I vexed my heart alone. She is at rest. Peace, peace, she can not hear lad or sonnet. All my life's buried here. Keep earth upon it.

The Sinister Roots of Margaret Sanger's Planned Parenthood
"A very good article on substack by this author named Schwab. He took his name from Klaus suave, I think sarcastically. He goes into the occult roots of Planned Parenthood's beliefs. Margaret sangers believes that motivated her to found Planned Parenthood. She took as her mentor, someone named Havelock Ellis. He was a British eccentric, wealthy, intellectual pseudo intellectual. Who helped found the Fabian society, which was the leading socialist group in Britain. But he also was obsessed with the occult. He was a sexual libertine. He himself was personally impotent, but he married and he was obsessed with sex. So he would conduct orgies where his wife would have sex with strangers and he would watch. And he would make notes. And he made friends with dozens of sexual eccentrics. He was a friend of Oscar Wilde, for instance. And he got them to write about their sexual experiences, which were frequently mixed in with occult experiences, because Havelock Ellis was into spiritualism. That was the 19th century attempt to channel spirits from beyond the grave. And you and I know the good spirits, the angels who are obedient to God, they don't come when you draw a pentagram on the floor. They don't come when you, when you issue a magic spell. There's only one kind of spirit that will come. And that's evil spirits, spirits from Satan. Spirits who want to dominate you and drag you to hell.

"The creature this week is the just soon Satya. From Korean folklore, Joss Satya apparently means afterlife messenger, and he's basically that. A psychopomp that leads people to the afterlife. According to one source, his boss was, quote, the king of hell, but as far as I can tell in Korean folklore, there are actually ten kings of hell. Not sure if they're all equally such as direct report or if there's a hierarchy among them, sounds like an office space esque middle management nightmare, but it's help, so I guess that's to be expected. It might actually not be hell, though, because this is the afterlife messenger, so people can go wherever. Unlike the more western grim Reaper, who's just a skinny guy in a snuggie, the just sing Satya is pretty sharp. He dresses in a block hanbok, the traditional Korean garment, and wears a wide brimmed gut, the hat. He has dark eyes, or no eyes, which would be deeply unsettling. Despite looking cooler than most psycho pumps, he is all business, just ice cold. He doesn't talk much, and there's no reasoning with him or bribing him. And if you try to run, he's singularly focused on his work. He will find you. He doesn't kill people though. Instead taking people who are already dead or on their way. If someone is sick and things are not looking good, the just sing Satya will sort of hang out and wait for them to die. If you're listening to this podcast looking for tips on how to cheat death, well, today is actually your lucky day, because if you're having a very unlucky day and death is coming for you, but you have some time to prepare, you do have options. First, get a dummy. Try to make it look as much like you as possible. It has to be a full sized deal though. No paper mache heads sticking out of the covers, like on escape from Alcatraz. If you do this, then convince all your loved ones to huddle around the bed weeping and wailing. While you're recovering in the next room over, you might be able to trick the Joe soon Satya into taking the dummy. That being said, when he comes back to retrieve you after getting chewed out by his ten hellish bosses, you might want to watch out for that one. That's it for this week.

Well, we'd love to tell you the story of emmerich judner, the world's absolute worst, God awful counterfeiter. Yeah, his attempts at counterfeiting $1 bills were so laughably bad. They looked and felt like what could only be described as monopoly money. But to his amazement, throughout the 1930s and 40s, he was able to elude and annoy the Secret Service for over a decade, with his heinous bogus bucks.

"Yeah, I'm sorry. I'm all out. The rosebush said to the nightingale. The winner has chilled my veins, frost has knit my buds, and storms have broken my branches. I will have no roses this year. I only need one red rose. One red roast for my love. Is there no way to get one? She would do anything. Was there no way to get one? The rosebush said, there was one way, but it was pretty horrible. Tell it to me. I am not afraid. The rosebush said, she felt like she shouldn't, but whatever. Well, if you really wanted a red rose, someone has to stain it in their own heart's blood, and it had to be built out of music by moonlight, like blood would have to flow from some living things veins all the way into my veins. The rose bush explained. Like I said, super messed up. There was a long pause. Okay. By your lack of reaction, I'm starting to think that you're not as put off by this as you should be. If it were you doing this, it would take all of your blood. It would kill you. So let's both agree that this is horrifying and get on with our lives. The rosebush said. Death death is the price for a red rose, death is the price for. For love, the nightingale swallowed hard. Looking off into the distance, toward the scholar's window. I enjoy the sunrise, sweet is the scent of the Hawthorne and blue bells that hide in the valley and Heather that blows on the hill, yet love is sweeter than all. The nightingale flew, once again, to the scholar's window, before the rose bush could point out that this was still a terrible idea when that she regretted saying the tears hadn't yet dried on the beautiful eyes of the scholar. When he looked over, to the nightingale at his window, be happy, cried the nightingale, be happy. You shall have your red rose. I will build it out of music by moonlight and stain it with my own heart's blood. Live a wonderful, beautiful, full life and love. For it was love that gave you this gift. The bird then choked back a sob and flew away. The scholar cactus head, that was weird. It was like that bird was talking to him. He didn't understand any of that, mainly because it was a bird. The story says that he could not understand it, because he only knew things that were written down in books. He laid down on his little palette bed, and, as the sun began to set, fell asleep, thinking of his love, who was not a bird. The nightingale flew back toward the rosebush. Okay, I'm going to say this again. Please don't do this. That rose bush pleaded. As the nightingale bared her feathery chest toward a thorn on a vine, like I know I can't stop you, but please, it is not worth this. He is just some human. I'm not doing this for the human. I'm doing this for love. Love is sweeter. Stronger than death. The nightingale said, walking up until the point was right on her feathers. Yeah, I mean, love is stronger than death in the abstract, but you're literally going to die for a kid who doesn't know you. This is just bad. The rosebush cried. I will be able to rest, knowing I have given the one I love happiness, even if he doesn't know my name, she said. And pressed the thorn into her chest. She sang all night. Her song was sad. And beautiful. Hopeful and forlorn. The rose bush accepted her sacrifice, and allowed the blood to flow into her. She didn't want her friend to die in vain. Hours passed, the sun began to paint the sky in the east. Throws bush side, pressed closer little nightingale, she said. Were the day will come before the roses finished. Goodbye, friend. The nightingale song grew wild, pain shot through her, as she sang of love that dies not in the tomb. A single rose, the largest, bloomed, and grew crimson with the light of the nightingale. She pressed farther into the thorn. Till it found her heart. The nightingale looked on it with hope. Her song grew fainter, she had done it. The one she loved would be happy. Able to live and love with the person he cherished. Her eyes closed for the last time, and she slid from the thorn. Falling into the grass. When the student woke that morning, he looked out the window, as he was getting ready. He spotted it. A red rose in the bush outside. He dressed in his best and almost fell down the stairs. He stood before the rosebush, marveling at his luck. Not knowing the love or the sacrifice that had brought him to this moment..

"Everyone would be aware of him. The boys were boiling a kettle with sticks. And an explosive. So they decided to take a nap. The kettle would wake them up when it was boiling. Since the rocket was so damp, the fire was roaring before it even started to singe his fuse. He began to shake with excitement. This was it. This was his chance. His whole life had been leading up to this point. When he went up, he would be the only thing the city talked about for a year. He would set the whole world on fire, figuratively, and maybe literally, too. Who knows? This was his glorious calling, it was time. The fuse disappeared. He started to rumble. Then he exploded. A shower sparks exploded behind him as he flew up into the sky. He was going off. This was magnificent. He would go higher than the stars, then the moon then even the sun. His end fizzed. This was amazing delightful. People will be talking about him for years. He was going to live forever. He exploded in blue white. It would have been the biggest grandest explosion of the night before, and it would have been magnificent if anyone had seen it, or even could have. The kids were sleeping. The animals all had their own stuff going on, and they were well outside the city walls at this point. The only thing left of the rocket was the stick he had been tied to. The last of the remarkable rocket, the Ember that floated to the ground, watched, as the stick fell next to a goose. They honked. Sticks, it was rainy sticks. They dove into the water, and paddled away as quickly as possible. The remarkable rocket, or what was left of it. Side to himself. I knew I would make a.

"You know, I am so glad I traveled in my youth, the squib, the small firework, said to the others, as they bumped along in the cart. I've seen the world. Travel improves the mind wonderfully and does away with all one's prejudices. The castle pyrotechnic had carried this squid from the workshop outside the wall to the height of the palace gardens. The extent of what it believed to be the world. So yeah, he was pretty well traveled. You fool, you complete knave, that's not the world. That's just the castle. The world is like four times bigger than that. Talking about the world. The Roman candle growled. Any place you love is the world to you, a Catherine wheel said. And they were off talking about love and poets and how poets ruin love because they wrote about it so much. They kind of ruined the topic for everyone. A firecracker called things to order. In the bickering about whether love was dead, rocket, cleared his throat. Rocket contributed the conversation by discussing the only topic he really cared about. Himself. It is fortunate for the prince that he is to be married on the same day I am to be let off. Couldn't have worked out better for him. Rocket said, after he cleared his throat, despite not having a throat or lungs. The other fireworks in the cart looked at him. Okay, I didn't really see how that related to the conversation they were having, but they all said it was the other way around. They were being let off in honor of the prince's wedding. I mean, maybe for you all, rocket smirked. But no, no, I am the remarkable rocket. For I come from remarkable parents. They were marvels of pilot technic art. It's pyrotechnic. The Bengal light, another firework chimed in, not to be that firework, but it is literally written on all of our canisters, even years. Will I say pilot technique? It is the cultured way to say it. The rocket sneered. The mango light chastened in front of the group turned and started bullying the little squibs. As the story says. To show that he was still a firework of some importance. As I was saying, what was I saying? The rocket wondered. You were talking about yourself. Again, the Roman candle chimed in. He and the firecracker chuckled. What are you laughing about? Rocket demanded. The two said they were laughing because they were happy, don't worry about it. What right do you have to be happy? Rocket spat, you should be thinking of others. You should be thinking of me. I'm always thinking to myself and everyone should do the same. It's called empathy. Might want to try it. I would feel so bad for the prince if I didn't go off tonight. His marriage will be spoiled. The princess would leave him. No one would get over it. When I think about how important I am, I moved to tears. Tears. Well, I mean, you better not be moved to tears, though. The Roman candle noted, because you have to stay dry. Because you're a firework. Says who? Rocket couldn't believe all the back talk he was getting today. It says common sense, fire needs dry fuel. Rocket explained that they forget that he wasn't a common rocket. Any common thing can have common sense, provided that they had no imagination. The only thing that kept him sane was the knowledge of the inferiority of others. It's something that always helped him through the hard times. But he would weep if he chose to, and he would go off just fine. No, no, no, you really won't. The fire balloon chimed in. Rocket said he would show them. He said that what if the prince and princess had a beautiful son? And they moved someplace by a river and the child went in the river and he died. He was their only son he was just a boy. So many years before him, so many lost possibilities just gone in the river. There it is. The tears began to flow down the rocket. The other rockets rolled away as best they could. First, thanks for killing the vibe. They were all having a good time at the wedding party before he started wailing over a nonexistent dead child. Second, he really wouldn't be able to go off if he was soaked. The wedding party emerged from the palace into the courtyard. It was time. The fireworks lived with a singular purpose. To go off in a show of beauty and grace. First, the Catherine wheel, spinning in the sky, then the Roman candle boomed. The squibs danced, the fire balloon cry goodbye to all their friends and dropped blue sparks. The firecrackers popped and sang as they fulfilled their purpose. Finally, it was rockets turn. Why is this one wet? The servant called out. The castle pyrotechnic shrugged. He didn't now try it anyway. After a few false starts, the rocket remained unlit. He.

"Hello, welcome to part two of homo sapiens. We're talking LGBT history month the pink pound, the history of the pink pound, with Justin benry. If you haven't heard part one, go back, you've got loads of good stuff at the beginning. When you were talking about Oscar Wilde in the trials one of the first instances of the pink pound, tell me a bit more about that. The way people were dressed became a thing. I think clothes have always been, have often been a marker of difference. And we can see that in queer history throughout the 20th century. So certainly I use the example of the use of fashion or the knowledge that fashion could be a signal and could be compromising because of the Oscar Wilde trials in the middle of the 1890s. But this continues throughout the entire century. Was a really useful way for men to signal. Signal their desires signal the fact that they weren't just like other men to other men and something as simple as a red tie was long a code that some would recognize that's another one that comes up through the 20th century. So I mean, this is the thing, once you know these codes and you're looking at, say, visual media from the period. If you start seeing someone that's in a red tie a pastel colored jumper, their hair is dyed and waved a certain way. You can start recognizing that had meaning for the people that could look at it at the time. Some of those meetings have been lost to us and it's only sort of inversion and historical sources that you get some sense of that. And I'm sure some of them will never be recovered. There's things I'm sure that I flip right past and don't see it. There's also language. What I found in some of the other magazines, men's magazines again in the 1930s by which time they resembled more closely what we understand to be immense lifestyle magazine, they could sometimes use language codes that had subcultural meaning, but they continued to use visual codes as well because they knew there were some men that would understand them. That is so fascinating that you kind of had to visually occupy some of these codes in order to find other people like you, whereas now, in certain parts of the world where it's less of a problem, people don't have to do that. So then actually I feel like I wonder if there's something in the idea that gay men specifically again sort of now try and copy the looks of straight men more than they used to because it was like that's slightly moved. Standing in a club sometime ago. And someone just saying, God, everyone seems straight in here. It's so different to when I went out..

"I was recently in a conversation with my boyfriend about his very complicated desk setup, and it occurred to me that he describes both his speakers for audio and his screens for visual as monitors. Why is this and what's the connection? Monitors. Yeah, it's interesting. Well, again, monitor really early early work, old word. It actually goes back to the Latin monere, meaning to warn, so a monitor originally was a reminder or a warning of something. And you'll find that monera in admonish in monster actually because a monster was a kind of mourning or a portent of something evil to come. The monitor lizard because the weight reacts can warn people of the presence of a venomous creature, and so on. So it's all the idea of noticing something and respecting it is a warning. So to Lauren's question as to why it was used that it's used for this text. So a television receiver used in a studio to select or verify the picture being broadcast was called a monitor, which is why we then talk about a screen as being a monitor. So the idea is that you're using it to verify the picture or to study something. And then when you're talking about the speakers, that is because monitors were used to allow by performers on stage to hear themselves and to check what is being recorded. So behind all of this is the idea of checking or supervising something that, as I said, it goes all the way back to that idea of being admonished or being warned about something. Hey, good. I just think it's so extraordinary how the world has changed in my lifetime. I first remember watching television in 1953. I was a very little boy, but we had a black and white set. We didn't buy it. We rented it from radio rentals. And it just had BBC. That's all we had in black and white. 1955, ITV was introduced, but we were a middle class family, and we didn't have ITV. It wasn't it wasn't for disrespectable. So we just had for the first, you know, until about 1960, we only had one set on the screen. There was just these little gray black and white pictures and think out what the world is now. It's just amazing in one lifetime we will end this whole language that's come with it. All the words we've been talking about today, none of them would have been understood Internet Google, downloading uploading Wi-Fi. None of them would have been robot, Jane Austen, Charles Dickens, Oscar Wilde, none of them would have known these words. They wouldn't understand what we're talking about..

"Daniel say what's up to fire nation and share something that you believe about becoming successful that most people disagree with? How are you doing fine nation? It's a privilege to be on the entrepreneurs on fire podcast. And yeah, thank you so much for having me. I hope that there's some information that you guys are interested by. But yeah, it's a great question. I'm glad we're starting off with the small stuff and nothing too deep. So thanks God. What's what makes it successful people successful, I guess, well, I'd like to quote Oscar Wilde. And Oscar Wilde once said that we're all laying in the gutter, however, some of us are looking up at the stars. And life and success is very much about going through that tunnel and you're aware of the old saying that there is a light at the end of that tunnel. Now, for some people, that light is nothing more than a flicker. And for other people, that light can be a very bright Beacon. But the interesting thing about progressing through that tunnel is making sure that even when you're in the middle, number one, you're enjoying the ride. Number two, you're enjoying your experiences, but most crucially number three do not stop until you hit that light. And that's the difference between somebody that's successful and enjoying everything that life has to offer. And some people that unfortunately settle for mediocrity in life. So yeah, that would be my ethos, I guess, John. Love that ethos and I love the fact that you had that quote from Oscar Wilde about starting in the gutter because fire nation and myself and Daniel were having a little chat pre interview. He briefly shared with me his rags to riches story. You know, he didn't just start silver spoon and mouth would like his family owning this wine Orchard or nothing on those lines. He actually had to build up from the bootstraps. We're actually going to tease potentially having a part two to this episode where we'll circle back and we'll tell Daniel's rags to riches story. So stay tuned on that for sure. But as you know, today's focus is wine investment. And that's what we're going to be focusing on here today.

And so the beautiful thing of mindful attention, mindful loving awareness is that we can find the rhythm that's right this moment and how we nourish ourselves. And intuitively we know that it can be lost from our childhood. We can be traumatized in all kinds of ways. But with attention, we can reclaim that. We can learn what's good for our heart. Good for our body and mind. In your recent book no time like the present, you said whatever the situation widen the space. Remember vastness allow ease and perspective. And I'd like to ask you for some strategies for doing that. But first I'm going to share one of mine, which is there is something for me about listening to you and the way that you speak that helps me remember vastness and widen the space. So that's one tool hearing people who speak to us. What are some other ways of doing that of remembering vastness of widening the space? Because the more knotted up we are the harder this seems to be. So there are literal ones like get out of the house. Go outside, walk in the Woods, climb a hill and climb a mountain, get some sense of a bigger perspective that you can look out over the landscape. And widen the sense of time so that there you are in the middle of oh, he said, and she did it. I might get fired or, you know, they're going to do this or I might lose that. I said, right. Then reflect on the end of your life, how much will this really have mattered? Because at the end of the life, the things that matter, did I love well, you know, did I give myself to life? There will be ups and downs and praise and blame and joy and Sarah we all have this and gain and loss nobody is exempt from this. So getting a temporal perspective in saying, let me look back at this. Okay, this is the season. It's a tough one. Maybe I'll write a novel based on how tough it was, you know? Tell the story to someone, but you get a temporal perspective. You get vast time. And then you also can reflect that whatever you're going through is not the end of the story..

Joy, you seem to have so much business experience and life experience in general. And obviously have learned a lot about the business world. And I guess the fragrance world. Have you received a pace of advice in your career that you've never forgotten that you'd like to share with other people? I'm just trying to think some of the greatest advice I've ever received is I think be yourself. Actually do you know what this isn't? This is a quote from Oscar Wilde. And he says, just be yourself because everybody else has taken. And that probably is the best piece of advice as I've got older. Don't try and be someone else. Don't try and copy, find your uniqueness, find, find the piece of you that is really you and stay within that. Never quit on a bad day because often the landscape of life will change very dramatically. And own everything you do, Oprah Winfrey. I did many, many, many years ago. I went into her show, and she invited me for lunch, so I went and had lunch with her afterwards. And I said to if I could have a piece of advice, what would you say? And she said, stamp your identity on everything that you do and own it. And I've lived my life really through that. You know, great women, giving me great pieces of ice. But bring in your personality into your day to today life will make you much happier than just doing a 9 to 5 and you'll find fulfillment through that. And ultimately, yes, we want successful businesses. Yes, we want all of those things that go with it, but ultimately we do have to be happy in what we're doing day to day. And COVID has taught us that, hasn't it? Oh, definitely. All very good pieces of advice. I didn't expect you to have quotes on hand ready to go over. Clearly, I asked the right person. I do recall our category manager, my car who made the call to range Joe loves. She actually had a call with us to run us through the range. And I've never seen her face so excited about a fragrance brand. She was just so she loves fragrant. She loves fragrance. She's got like a whole wardrobe of fragrance, and she just spoke so highly of the brand.

Why would people wearing the green carnation. Did it become a kind of code. No it didn't go but people thought it became a kind of code. It was simply an amusing idea. Just to be a bit different. Just to have something for people to talk about behind the green carnation. An i when i was a boy and going through my first adolescent oscar wilde phase.

The corporate greed has turned these bodies into disposable things that can be thrown into a meat grinder because it has soiled these. Nba playoffs for me. The obvious way that the bodies have been broken by the need to satisfy the television contracts. It's distorted the product the measurement and the champion for me. I'm surprised to say that.

Victor Noir's Mysterious Erection
"Year more than three million people visit the parish cemetery in paris it's home to hundreds of thousands of tombs. And you can buy a map directing you to all the graves of the cemetery. Most famous residents folks like the singer. Jim morrison and writers like oscar wilde and produced but among that list of celebrities and historical figures is a name that pretty much. No one will recognize but whose tomb attracts a lot of visitors. And i'm very certain kind of visitor with a very certain kind of neat. it's the tomb of victor noir. Victor nor was a journalist in paris in the eighteen hundreds and he didn't publish anything especially remarkable during a short lifetime and he probably would have been forgotten a history if it weren't for the fact that he was shot and killed by prince pierre. Bonaparte the nephew of napoleon that act triggered a wave of protests and led to the commissioning of a statue by the acclaimed. Sculptor jules delauro. But even that isn't really why people are visiting his grave today. The visit for more personal reasons and they aren't there for victor exactly. The statue that covers. Victor noirs grave depicts him laying down as if he had just been shot and that alone is kind of just. But then you notice a couple of other things. I the crotch of this statue has a bulge to it in second. The bulge is very very shiny. Though the statue was largely darkin discolored that particular part has been polished by the hands of countless win over the decades women who are drawn to the statue of victor nawar because rubbing it supposedly confers. Good luck in love and fertility. The full ritual involves kissing his lips rubbing the bulge and dropping a flower in his hat.

Narrowly, edged out by eighteenth century French Aristocrat who declared I see you have made three spelling mistakes. As. He read over his own death warrant. We assign a lot of significance to last words hoping that we'll leave some deep philosophical epitaph or something funny like what's this button do? But you may end up with last words like American author, Henry David Thoreau who simply said Moose. Indian. My Name's Moxy and this is your brain on facts. Many people think Irish playwright and poet Oscar Wilde's last words were either this wallpaper goes or I do. That would be typical wild but there are two small factual inaccuracies in this retelling. The actual quote is this wallpaper and I are a duel to the death either it goes or I do. And he said that a few weeks before he died. Oscar Wilde's actual last words were a mumbled prayer. He did also say toward the end of his life as he lay in bed sipping champagne I am dying beyond my means.

Syphilis comes in distinct stages. Primary Syphilis is characterized by painless sores on the genitals or mouth, which typically heal on their own. The second stage usually presents with a rash and fever. These resolve and the disease enters the latent stage which can last for years. You're not infectious in the latent stage, but the bacteria may still be damaging your heart bones, nerves, and brain. People would think they were no longer sick which was just as well since there was no cure anyway. Tertiary Syphilis the third stage.

A Walking Tour of Dublin, Ireland
"Start. Today's all Irish. Our with tips for a walking tour of Dublin with nearly two million people in Greater Dublin. Ireland's capital is by far its biggest city and it thrives with Arts Entertainment Food and fun just taking a walk through Ireland's capital. You can see and experience so much of its charm. That can know where to look and if you know where to walk. It's even better. That's why we've invited to Great Irish guides. Joe Darcy and Karen O'hare to join us in our studios for a guided stroll through Dublin. Joe and Karen thanks for being with us. Our pleasure great to be here so if you're going to take somebody on a walk through. Dublin where we just start. I think I'd probably start up. Stephen's Green which is at the south. End of Grafton Street is a pedestrianised shopping street and Stevens. Green is a beautiful manicured Eighteenth Century Park. It reminds me of when you get off the platform and suddenly. You're at hogwarts step out of the middle of this busy packed city into a beautiful manicured park actually reminds me of London. Very much so probably. That's because it was designed in a time when Dublin was actually the second city in the British Empire. Oh without question. In everything. From the the wrought iron fencing around the entire park to the style of landscape architecture inside the park is very very limited those parts in London and Joe when we think of Saint Stephen's Green. Today it has some connections with Ireland's difficult fight for independence Jordan. The nineteen sixteen religion on Easter Monday called eastern evasion and there was one. Contingent of artists rebelled swear in command of Stevens granddaughter. Job was to mind. Stephen Greene barricaded streets on prevent British reinforcements from getting into the city centre and amazingly their only experience of warfare. Because he's not. Soldiers was watching the pathway news from World War One and where everybody was digging trenches all over Belgium France so they dug trenches in Stephen's Green. Hold out but of course British army caught up to four storey buildings all around the Gresham hotel. They had a clear line of fire. Is like they're digging their own tombs. Yeah Yeah So. They retreated from their interface called the Royal College of Surgeons. Which is just when you come out with Stephen Screen through that gate around. He'll after all colleges charges and you can still see bullet marks into whole memorial to mention. Yeah Yeah Yeah let host reminded of the the blood that was last is Ireland one. It's independent that was no easy feat the more understanding of history you bring your visit to. Dublin the more. You'll enjoy your sightseeing today when I go to Saint Stephen Screen it's Of course you've got the history but it's just a festival of of youth and families in life. People are feeding the ducks in the pond. There's a little theater there. And it's and it's the kickoff point for Grafton Street Karen mentioned Grafton Street Joe when he walked down Grafton Street What are you gonNA find? You're gonNA find a multitude of small shops as well as the big retail shops. Actually strangely enough when you come down from Stevens Gray and one of the first big shops you say you left US Disneyland. So there's a store you know. This is the High Rent Street and you have the high rents treated drives out the local businesses and it brings in the what. Are you gonNA see Karen when you walk down Grafton Street well I think the first thing that you notice is the street is seething with life there's wall to wall people coming and going in either direction and you know living in Dublin. You're always if you live there you're gonna run into someone you know in that street. You know when you walk down it you don't see any churches right on the street but hiding a little bit off. The way is a Catholic Church. Why would a Catholic Church be hiding off the main street in Dublin? Well Saint Theresa's Church right off. Grafton Street was One of the first places that it was allowable. I believe for Roman Catholics to openly worship after the period of time in the eighteenth century known as the penal laws when open practice of Roman Catholicism was officially outlawed by British rulers in Ireland so that churches write-offs in Stephen's Green and it's very much an oasis of tranquility in the city as it has been since the eighteenth century Saint Teresa's. It's a beautiful church to depend to end. It is interesting to think that in Ireland. Dublin was sort of London's second city and it was very not Catholic but when Catholicism was allowed you could worship as Catholics in Dublin but keep a low profile exactly so these great churches are tucked away in the back streets although they were allowed to openly practice. That wasn't really opened. That was in inverted commas. The church still had to be kinda hidden away. They weren't allowed to build churches on a main street. That's why it's down outside. So it Joe at the bottom of Grafton street you come to a very important College Beautiful College Trinity College and originally for the elites for the Protestant kids but of course today Everybody's welcome as it traveled. How do enjoy Trinity College? Well the best way to visit is to go into the front main entrance on an area called college dot Grafton Street just continue on straight over to your right hand side and you come into a beautiful Georgian Square. A huge amount of Dobbin was rebuilt. George an and that's like neoclassical screams. British Empire Eighteenth Century he and George W was rebuilt in the eighteenth century in Georgia. So we're one of the best Georgian cities. In Britain colleges SORTA like the elite colleagues for Ireland. Even go to college was founded in one thousand nine hundred hundred nothing left of the original college. It was almost totally rebuilt starting in Sixteen Ninety S and then Roy Eighteenth Century Karen my favorite thing when I step through that Grand. Entrance of Trinity is a little table where our students offering tours? Yeah that's right and I used to live right across from that table when I was in college and Trinity. Right in front square and there are students known as scholars of the college who've passed a competitive examination to have free tuition at the college and they give tours of front square dressed in the academic gowns. That were still common among students until recently and they are really eloquent. Fun-loving students giving you a candid. Look at student life. It's very inexpensive. It's a great way to get a sense of Trinity College absolutely in a great way to get a sense of the tradition of wit in Dublin. It goes back to one of the most famous Students at Trinity Oscar Wilde are guides to Dublin travel with Rick Steves are irish-american Cure. No half he attended. Kennedy College is an expert on the Ellen pipes which he performs with the company trio opened the door for three Joe. Darcy provides custom walking tours of Dublin and was recently on the board of historic Sweeney's pharmacy. Where James Joyce readings are given throughout the week when we go to Trinity College? Of course you've got to go to the library and see the book of Kells and so one of the most important medieval art treasures in Western civilization when you leave trinity when I was really struck by is a bank that used to be the parliament step in there and you get a little dose of British rule of Ireland Joe. Tickets into that the most important building built in Dobbin Jordan rebuilding eighteenth century was a new bike camera. Houses apartment one of the first purpose built house the parliament certainly in Europe. If not the world took about forty years to complete S- between seventeen forty. Seven hundred eighty and housed. Two Chambers House will come in the House of Lords very much along the the British can step into one of those houses to this day. It's open during banking errors free and and you really got sense of that little after the act of union and the first of January eighteen hundred one we became part of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and the Bank of Ireland. Arden's forced commercial bank. They took over the building paid for the House of Commons. Hot To be put out of use never to be used as a place of assembly again but they said nothing about the House of Lords so the Bank of art and has maintained. And it's a beautiful room. It's mostly open Jordan banking hours occasionally there's functions and there you'll see a sign outside that it's either open or closed. I stumbled into it just this last year. I never knew about it and it was great
