Out of the way where did the idea for tulsa makers come from tulsa change makers is really the product to to experiences that myself in jake learner cofounder change makers had when we first moved to tulsa through teacher america the first experience just feeling incredibly welcoming we got here just super invested in really connected as leaders right away in the community for me. I moved here from outside of charleston. South carolina originally from outside of boston. Jake from philly across the board to feel really welcomed invested in his leaders. I'm the second experience we had was going into classrooms. Obviously i you're teaching was challenging. But our students were blowing us away. Day my sixth graders. Abell elementary jake's fifth graders tulsa legacy charter school. Students were bright your socially minded leadership skills at rival adults that we knew and became really struck by the juxtaposition between our experiences as outsiders to also in the experiences of bianchi classrooms the insiders and what struck us. The most. Is that for me and jake. As outsiders and newcomers to tulsa we felt like we were being more invested in and more physician leaders in the community. The young people in our classrooms.

Addicted or Dependent? What Is the Difference?
"Today. I want to talk about clarifying some things. There has been a big discussion of late around kelly. Sober for those of you. Who don't know it means that you might be addicted to alcohol or cocaine or another drug and you decide that you're going to stop using that one drug but you choose to actually continue smoking pot or if you're a pot smoker and you stop smoking pot you choose to continue drinking alcohol you know. I have my opinions about this. But i like to return to more basic stuff if you know me. I'm much more into okay. What are the definitions of certain things. And why are we so frigging confused about them. Is there really a difference between addiction and dependence for instance and what are the differences between like having a habit or miscues zine or me using something for today. I'm going to be drawing from a lot of kind of clinical stuff that i've done research on most predominantly from an article written by jonathan stevia. Who is a registered practicing clinical psychologists and calgary and he also is an adjunct assistant. Professor at the university of calgary this for scientific america. And i think it does such a good job of at least putting down some facts about the differences that there is so much misinformation out there about in regard to the language of addiction. What is a substance. Use disorder versus. Am i just sober curious. Do i really have a problem. All of that stuff on instagram and facebook. That gets me confused. And i'm in the business.
Dr. Jean-Christophe Plantin Discusses Digital Media Infrastructures and Tech Platforms
"Let me turn it over to dr zone. Christoph plantain again. He's an associate professor in the department of media and communications at the doctor plantain. Thanks so much for taking the time out and welcome to the social media and politics podcast. Thanks for having me really happy to be here so to start out here. Why don't we break down a few of the key concepts that you've been developing in your research and the first one i'd like to discuss is media infrastructures which draws attention to this interplay between digital platforms. Which is kind of the services that we're all familiar with and the physical infrastructures that make those platforms work. And i think. Maybe we're not all familiar with those. So could you outline the concept of media infrastructures for us and why we should even be thinking about media infrastructures in the first place. Absolutely yeah you allow me to be a little idiosyncratic and just tell me a little bit how. I came to these concept. Maybe that would. That would be helpful just because this is a history that i guess we'll be telling on how we can put these different concepts together. My background is in a media. Medication studies and i worked a lot since my phd. On the concept of blood. I worked lots a studied. Participatory mapping google maps. Open street map and we are here. Yeah mid-2000s is still the whip. Two point zero seeking pretty strong and the type of scholarship at the time. Emphasizes the participatory nature off these pot for allowing people to post more easily to create to engage in activism or creative practices. so that was my standpoint. that's what i really started with A post doctoral fellowship at university of michigan and with my colleagues where i became much more more familiar with the concept of infrastructure. I worked a lot with polite words. Carla goes the christian. Send vague and these folks are much more on the stf side of these topics of the study of technolog- and the where of course talking about and they were talking about large distribution systems. They're put together via standards and gateways in these type of things but what was super interesting when we started working together and focusing more on the facebook and google's of the world. Is that what. I was describing. As platform there were describing as infrastructure.
One Pot-Earning Play I Love
"The first pot earning play is floating flops to steal turns in this. Play the general way it works. Is you call the flop seabed with the plan of bluffing when they check on the turn. So it's a very simple call now bluff later plan and i absolutely love this play and i wanna share with you how to do it properly. There's five aspects that really help. If all of these things are in place really help this place succeed number. One is to be in position. Everything in poker's easier when you're in position you all know this right and being in position makes it more likely your opponents going to fail to seabed from out of position on the next street when they show you that weakness it's your time to pounce aspect number two is to have some equity. Now you can do this Call the flop. Beloved the turn with absolutely no equity. No draw no good pair. Nothing potential right. It's like holding eight. Seven on an ace king deuce flop but i really liked to do this with some sort of pair or even a backdoor draw or over cards on the flop that kind of equity just in case they call back into something. Good for example. You're holding the king. Spate queen of spades and the flop is nine three deuce with one spade so there are some really good. Turn cards for you. A king a queen gives you top pair. A jack or ten gives you a gut shot draw and any spade gives you a flush draw now if he checks to you on any of those cards and then you decide to bet and he calls. You can hit a good card on the river completing astray completing a flush giving you a top pair hand even a two pair trip kings. Now the third aspect is that the razors range missed both the flop and the turn so your opponent they raised pre flop and you called in position. They have plenty of. Ace king ex-queen x. hands in their range. So what kind of boards are they going to hate seeing probably low in dry boards. Things like nine do's and four or five seven also like monotone boards and even to tone boards couple of spades out there. That's going to be pretty scary if they don't hold a spade
How To Make A Handbag the Old-Fashioned Way With Slow Fashion Craftswoman Simone Agius
"Before we get into the angle. The i wanted to kind of pin you down on. Which was your suggestion. Which is why we chose you to tell you story. Let's just really briefly. Give us an idea of what these bags that you make. Look like well the quite graphic this symbolic of the moon there crescent moon shape which is it's an iconic shape it some inspired from vintage to some degree. I love seventies fashion and one of my favorite handbag. Brands is khloe in that style. Differently inspires me and they cleaned the elegance. They look beautiful. Digest just beautifully handcrafted bags though. So i'm not sure if the entirely so instead strike the not entirely hand-stitched there's a lot of hand processes though as i mentioned the the one or two at a time. There's a lot of glowing involved. We would buysc lose when i first started learning about that was also Basically which is extremely toxic to be breathing in all day and it was actually at the amid traveling shore when the women from attila was sitting in it. She was stitching a handle or something like that. She had the little pot of glue next door and shed the french translator. And i was like can you ask. Oh what's in the pot and he was like aqua. I'll like water. Water base clue. I get this and that was literally when i was like okay. I'm switching on water. Basically with doing that if as doing at we can do it for listeners. Who aren't aware of this incredible traveling exhibition that amazed which actually came to sydney anti melvin and traveled in all different countries. I'm not sure exactly. Where but i did go and see in sydney and the luxury french iconic fashion house brought their processes to a museum context in living way. And so you could actually meet the autism and see them do what they do is amazing right. It was so cold. I was there for like three hours just watching. It was awesome and the fact that you asked about materials in they told you help you and your processes amazing yet. Definitely we now by glue. It's an italian glue and it's awesome stuff but it does mean that we have to teach everything because solving bicyclers superstrong. It's what they use ensures where you don't need stitching to have strong as okay but with bags like when you see an acne bag that doesn't have the top line stitching and everything's bundled that's sullivan glue. Water-based glue you need stitch delays together. Because over time it will come

It's kind of like a barrier cream skin without trading it under the barry. Exactly so what you would be doing. I guess the barry kramer's you've got all your delicious nourishing serums underneath. But then you you barry cream on top so i guess the argument is it's kind of creating this karting and other stuff con gideon.

I just want it to look and feel shiny and not be naughty when i'm trying to brush it when it's wit which silicon

"Modern city is changing. Urbanization and population growth are non ending phenomenon with sixty. Six percent of the population expected to be living in cities by twenty fifty.

Were under vietnamese rule. Pol pot was back in the jungle yet. He refused to admit defeat. Even if it meant a long slow and unsuccessful struggle with a small guerrilla force. China step in and throw a bone to its longtime ally in the form of a punitive expedition against vietnam on february seventeenth. Nineteen seventy nine eighty. Five thousand soldiers stormed into north vietnam and laid waste whatever military and economic infrastructure. They came across by the time. They withdrew a month later. Vietnam's already weak economy was crippled but that was a secondary goal their primary objective was to force vietnamese to send troops to reinforce the north and give pol pot some breathing room on the cambodian border. The vietnamese didn't take the bait however instead they launched a new offensive against pol pot's jungle bases pol pot had just hours of warning. He and his cronies barely escaped with their lives but escaped. They did in time to watch the vietnamese lewd cambodia cities and even dismantle its factories sending all the booty back to vietnam. The vietnamese set up a provisional government in january much like under the khmer rouge any new official had to go through lengthy indoctrination sessions. Those who didn't cooperate were imprisoned. The end result was that many cambodian peasants just gave up and fled the country. The refugees into thailand grew from one hundred and fifty thousand that october to over five hundred thousand in december and pol pot and sihanouk seeing an opportunity and following the advice of their chinese allies grudgingly formed an alliance by december of nineteen eighty-one. The communist party of capuccio was no more becoming the first and only communist party to willingly terminate its own existence in its place was a new united front one. That did its best to separate itself from the past atrocities of the c. p. k. And not just in name. There was some real reform. Dissidents were now reeducated rather than killed followers were allowed to have individual possessions. Captured soldiers were spared and given the choice to join pol. Pot's guerrillas or go home and sihanouk was made head of state but for all the change. The alliance's numbers remained minimal. And when the vietnamese finally launched an offensive to address their jungle dissidents they were resoundingly crushed. In december of nineteen eighty-four pol pot was forced to flee to thailand and watch as the world changed.

Smoke hung heavy in the sky. as pol. pot's soldiers entered panam pen on april seventeenth. Nineteen seventy five. The city breathed a sigh of relief. The five year civil war that had killed five hundred. Thousand cambodians was finally over the winning side. Was the communist party of campo chia or the cpi k. More popularly known as the kamerhe rouge in honor of the red scarves they wore. But the kamerhe rouge soldiers didn't all look like winners. Many were peasants from cambodia's mountainous regions and had never seen a city before. Modern life confused them. They were filthy from fighting and didn't understand urban habits. They drank out of toilet bowls thinking they were wells. They were suspicious of food or drink in bottles or cans yet. Willingly drank motor oil and toothpaste thinking they were food. But the real trouble on the winning side lay not with its countryside soldiers but with its leader pol pot pol pot had studied the works of mao and stalin and he was convinced that for a revolution to be truly effective. All resistance must be smoked out and crushed. The executions began almost immediately. The first to die was the ousted regime's prime minister several other high ranking republican figures. Soon joined him. Pol pot's goal was to establish perhaps the most radically communist government. The world had ever seen one. That didn't just uplift the peasantry but forced everyone in the country to become a peasant to that end the very afternoon that his soldiers entered the city pol pot ordered penh emptied of inhabitants. All two million of them. The pretense was that the americans who had been mercilessly bombing cambodia. Since the conclusion of the vietnam war we're going to launch a raid on the capital. But it was ally in reality. Pol pot worried. That cambodia's cities were a hotbed of anti-communist thought. He also correctly figured that it would be much more difficult for western spies to operate without anyone in the capital. Cambodia's cia chief would later admit that his entire intelligence apparatus was neutralized when pol pot evacuated ben. But that didn't mean the operation was in all around success. The exodus was a fiasco from the start. In a pattern that would be repeated. Throughout pol pot's entire rule. He acted with almost no planning. There was nowhere for the evacuees to stay during their march through the countryside. No food no transportation and no medical aid. April is cambodia's hottest month and many civilians suffered from heat exhaustion. Those who could no longer keep walking were killed. They were forced to march hundreds of miles to new farming cooperatives soldiers and see. Pk officials chose who went where the new peasants had no say in the matter. The exodus also doubled as a highly effective way to screen nearly a quarter of cambodia's population for former government officials and thus people pol pot viewed as potential threats at checkpoints. Along the road soldiers would ask all government officials to come forward. The ruse was that they were being asked to help. The new government to rebuild. Panam pen in reality. They were dragged off into the jungle to be killed in the end. Upward of twenty thousand people died in the evacuation and pol. Pot was just getting started. Once the capital was emptied pol pot's pesification could begin. His goal was to make cambodia completely self sufficient by building an economy on the backs of rice farms. The plan was to mechanize farming within ten years and then to industrialize within twenty years. It wasn't a terrible plan. Pot wanted to construct a vast network of irrigation canals to increase rice yields and many independent western observers claimed that it was a praiseworthy initiative but what they might not have approved of were the methods.

"Forbidden land was redistributed so that all inhabitants in each region had the exact same amount poorer peasants. Were obviously thrilled. Wealthy peasants not so much but the real problem is began when people resisted pots new mandates in the liberated zones in one stark example after a village had killed three. Ck officials soldiers rounded up three ringleaders and their entire families and killed them all even children and infants. These moves were intended to snuff out the individual in pol. Pot's perfect cambodia. Everyone was a peasant working together with absolutely no thought of the self or ideas of self-determination. All that was left for pol pot to achieve his utopian dream was to take panom penn but that was easier said than done especially after the nineteen seventy three paris peace accords peace accords officially ended us involvement in vietnam which made pol pot nervous aid from china and vietnam could very well dry up. If cambodia was no longer valuable to them the to larger countries were already pressuring him to sign a peace. Deal with lon nol. Such a request was impossible. Both sides were utterly unwilling to make peace in response. The us redoubled their bombing efforts in cambodia which was not off limits according to the treaty. These bombs sport. Lon nol's regime another three years. They also provided the perfect excuse for pol pot to enact his own show of force claiming they might be struck by aaron bombs pol pot uprooted entire villages and marched them to different commune's in the liberated zone. No one was allowed to bring any of their possessions. There wouldn't be room for them anyway. As these commune's often had thirty or forty families living together they were crowded. Dirty places rife with misery and disease pol. Pot was beginning to reveal his true self the self he had kept hidden from the world for almost fifty years. He was a man who believed anything that got in the way of his perfect communist. Cambodia had to be eliminated. Whatever the bloody cost in fact things would soon get much worse. In march of nineteen seventy four yuedong. One of the old imperial capitals fell to see. Pk troops. They split the population into two groups soldiers and officials and everyone else. The first group was marched into the jungle and murdered. The government lost moorland throughout the year. Until by december only panam penn remained. It was completely cut off from the rest of the country and barely surviving. Only thanks to american food drops then on april seventeenth nineteen seventy five c. Pk forces entered the capitol and the war drew to a close. All part was finally the leader of a unified cambodia and it only cost the lives of half a million of his countrymen to do it nonetheless. There was a sense of relief throughout the capital. The war was finally over now. Things could go back to normal and perhaps as the. Ck promised their lives would even get better. They couldn't have been more. The horrors had.

"Place against the repressive government to that end the c. p. Pk was surprisingly successful. After an inauspicious start. They managed to steal hundreds of rifles from the government and by early march. More than ten thousand disaffected peasants had flocked to the pk. The cpi k. Was most successful in the northeast region. Where by the fall of nineteen sixty eight they controlled many of the region's commune's and villages by the end of nineteen sixty eight. There were an estimated. Fifteen hundred communist insurgents backed by several times more armed peasants. But these successes didn't necessarily mean pots revolution was ready to take over the country. Most of see. Pk's soldiers were poor soldiers if they were trained at all. It was usually mcp k. Ideology and concepts like the proletarian consciousness not military strategy or using their weapons. Pol pot would certainly not be deterred now when things were finally starting to go his way and revolution was actually happening. Fortunately for the cpi k. Sihanouk made a conveniently timed. Ill advised decision. He undermined cambodia's relationship with china. By banning. the teachings of now as well as the mouth pins and paraphernalia that had become popular with students. Now out of china's favor he had no choice but to seek support from the united states and he couldn't protest when the us began to secretly bomb the cambodian side of the vietnamese border in an effort to stop supplies from getting to the north vietnamese. This choice along with other repressive policies sent droves of recruits to the cpi k. Finally pol pot had the numbers he needed to wage of full fledged war against the government. But there was just one problem after all it's raids of military bases. The cpi k still didn't have enough weapons to arm. Its people pol pot and sihanouk were locked. In a stalemate through the end of the nineteen sixties. each army had enough firepower to repel assaults. But not enough to counterattack but pol pot was once again about to receive some aid from sihanouk himself on march. Eighth nine thousand. Nine hundred. seventy villagers along cambodia's eastern border began to protest against the viet cong presence in their villages. Sihanouk like the idea. So he ordered lon nol his right hand man to create some spontaneous protests in the capital his misguided aim was to convince the vietnamese to withdraw their troops from cambodia but his plan backfired spectacularly the protests turned to riots in by the end of the day both the south and north vietnamese embassies were reduced to ashes falling this debacle members of the national assembly brought forth a resolution to remove sihanouk from power. And install lon nol in his place. The resolution became official on march eighteenth. Nineteen thousand nine hundred seventy for all his failings. Sihanouk could be a shrewd politician and in a desperate act of self preservation. He flew to china where he announced that he was willing to work with the c k. To overthrow lon. Nol pol pot didn't trust sihanouk but the chinese urged him to consider the former king's offer they felt it would add an air of legitimacy to the cpa regime. So pol pot made a decision just as radical as sihanouk's offer. He accepted it suddenly. The resistance of the people was led by pol pot and cambodia's deposed king. It was an absolutely bizarre situation and one that would make it impossible for the panama penn government to claim that the communists were foreign puppets pol pot's fortunes changed almost overnight with sihanouk in charge of cambodia. It had been almost impossible to convince vietnam and china to aid the revolution. But against lon nol's right wing government which was quickly proving to be very pro american. It was a different story and vietnam. Support was exactly what the cpi k. needed while the cpi pk's forces were poorly trained and poorly armed. The vietnamese had been fighting since the nineteen forties. The vietnamese carried out most of the fighting in the nineteen seventies cambodian troops were only used intermittently on the front lines so villagers wouldn't confuse the communists for invaders. By this point. The only thing propping up lon. Nol's regime was american aid and a cadre of eleven thousand south vietnamese troops. Vietnamese forces began to withdraw in nineteen seventy two to prepare for a new offensive in south vietnam but pol pot in the cpi k. Already appeared poised to achieve exactly what they wanted. Unfortunately when pol pot left his command center to travel the liberated zones. He was furious with what he saw. People were still buying and trading items rich peasants still had bigger farms than poorer peasants. Something had to be done so following in the footsteps of mao pol pot decided it was time to begin this social revolution. They would no longer treat villagers with kid gloves. It was time to declare trade inequality gambling alcohol unsanctioned travel and even extramarital affairs.

Try it now at mail chimp dot com slash smart marketing now back to the story thirty seven year old pol pot began life in exile in nineteen sixty two living at a viet minh based on the cambodian side of the border. The conditions were miserable. But he was enmeshed with communist allies and among these like minded folk. He never stopped working toward the communist revolution. He spent much of the next two years travelling during his travels. He met north vietnamese leaders. Chee men and lay doin in hanoi. He also met with chinese communist party. Leaders deng xiaoping and pawn sin in his main goal was to drum up support and allies for cambodian revolution. Unfortunately no one was particularly interested at the time. Communist asia's focus was on the conflict in vietnam against their archrival. The united states pol pot was disappointed at the lack of support but part of him was also secretly thrilled after all if the vietnamese wouldn't help him his cambodian communists wouldn't fall under their thumb and he'd get to lead the charge himself in the fall of nineteen sixty four pol pot set up headquarters for his coming revolution in the jungle. Just next to the vietnamese border. It was called office one hundred and it was host to an assembly where the party began to hammer out yet. Another official policy. The party under pol pot would be slightly different from its previous generations. Pol pot had spent the last several years living in the jungles among the peasants and he developed a strong distaste for both city-dwellers and intellectuals even those within the lower castes in fact part assume that cambodia's few factory workers had most likely been infiltrated by foreigners and therefore couldn't be trusted taking this idea a step further. Pol pot actually banned factory workers from joining the communist party. This ran counter to traditional marxist teachings to mark's workers represented progress and peasants represented backwardness most marxist movements wanted to transform peasants into workers. Pol pot wanted to transform everyone into peasants to that end the new cambodian labor party was a party of action. Not thinking they didn't need to study marxist leninist material they would create their own form of communism born essentially out of their own ignorance as pol pot. Later put it. We applied ourselves and then put it into practice knowing whether it was right or wrong in essence they were making it up as they went along. It's hard to save this vivid if unconventional ideology contributed to a marked increase in recruitment. The party's numbers. Were up to two thousand by nineteen sixty five. It's more likely. However that these recruits were the result of sihanouk's increasingly repressive policies and some major changes in the country's workforce sihanouk had aggressively reformed cambodia's educational policies over the last few years but the economy couldn't keep up as a result. There were ten times more students than when pol pot was in school but the same number of jobs for educated workers. This meant that each opportunity for a white collar job received over one hundred applicants. Thousands of employed educated students were left to roam the streets grumbling about lack of opportunity. Furthermore thanks to a series of bad harvests and high interest rates on bank loans. Many peasants now found themselves landless with no other options. They traveled to the city's looking for jobs. Where of course there were none. These disillusion students and peasants were perfect recruits for the kampuchean labor. Party and pol pot ordered his communist cells to go into recruitment overdrive. Despite the fact that he didn't love having to include intellectuals in his party he knew this was an opportunity. he couldn't pass up but changing membership meant naturally the need for new plans so at the end of nineteen sixty six pol pot held another party congress where the communists made three important decisions. I they were now. The communist party of kampuchea the cpi k. Secondly they moved the party headquarters to the northeast to get away from the viet cong. They also agreed that at long last all party leaders should begin making preparations for an armed struggle. The uprising finally officially commenced on january. Eighteenth nineteen sixty eight. When rebel soldiers raided an army post at by damron the operation. Unfortunately for pol pot was a complete disaster. Still the first stone had been cast from here on out pot. And the party's main goals were to assault military outposts in order to steal weapons and to let disaffected peasants know that there was a revolution taking.

"Cambodia of the twentieth century was a shadow of its old self up until the dawn of the fifteenth century. It was the heart of the camera empire which stretched from the gulf of thailand to lows and included much of southern vietnam but by the fourteenth century the kamerhe empire had reached its apex before facing a decade long stretch of inadequate monsoon rains the parched region fell into chaos. The land couldn't sustain its people or its government by fourteen thirty one. The empire was in ruin. Its capital angkor wants. One of the largest cities in the world was all but abandoned from that point. Don cambodia was a small country fought over by its thai and vietnamese neighbors and then in eighteen sixty seven taken over by the french. This so-called french protectorate lasted almost one hundred years. But the cambodian royal family survived the transition because royals were widely considered almost godlike by the cambodian people the french found it convenient to use them as local puppets but not everyone was fooled by the sham. And some cambodians were growing restless under the yoke of imperialism pol pot was born saloth sar on may nineteenth nineteen twenty five always a secretive man. He would adopt many nicknames throughout his life his family owned fifty acres of land which made them wealthy. Compared to other villagers they were also well connected pots cousin was a royal concubine of king and had borne him a son. Thanks to these connections. Pot was able to travel to panama penn in nineteen thirty four when he was nine there. He spent a year as an apprentice. At the watt button voday buddhist monastery. Pol pot's suffered through the monks rigid totalitarian discipline. He woke at four. Every morning to prepare the monastery for the day's activities originality was discouraged and the ultimate goal was to instill unquestioning obedience in the apprentice. It was an uncomfortable environment but its tactics. Were effective something. Pol pot noted even as a young child and remembered when his environment shift dramatically in nineteen thirty five and he went to study at a french primary school pot schoolmates at a coal mish described him as full of laughter and fun to be around but they all freely admitted that he was not good at his studies he should have graduated from primary school in nineteen forty one but he didn't pass his final exam until nineteen forty three when he was eighteen. He then attended the colledge. Pray sihanouk where. He was also known less for his academic prowess and more for playing soccer and basketball sports compelling young pol pot the national politics despite the fact that he was in phnom penh in one thousand nine hundred forty one. When the king died eighteen year old norodom sihanouk ascended to the throne and changed began to sweep across the country sihanouk envisioned himself as a new kind of monarch who could bring cambodia in to the future and from under the yoke of french colonial rule. He wasn't wrong. In the aftermath of world war two the political landscape began to change. France allowed cambodia. More self-determination permitting the creation of constitution and a national assembly. Perhaps they loosened their grip on the country. Because of what was happening around it to the north mazda don was launching his communist revolution and just to the east. The vietnamese were beginning their struggle for independence. From the french cambodians watched the conflict in vietnam warily as much as sihanouk and many of his subjects wanted out of french rule. The colonial power provided the country with protection against its larger neighbours. If the french were forced out of vietnam the future was entirely up in the air. Pol pot was unbothered by these massive geopolitical shifts. He'd moved on from soccer and basketball to carpentry which he began studying at a trade school in nineteen forty eight. It was regarded as the easiest subject and the teacher generally gave his students. Good marks this along with his family's royal connections most likely explained how pol pot received a coveted scholarship to study radio technology in france in nineteen forty nine. We're finally far from home. Pot began to pay attention to politics. For the first time in paris pot joined the cambodian student union the a e k at some point in the early nineteen fifties it was a left leaning organization and pot fell in with a group of cambodian communists called the circle marxist the circle was a secret organization which operated in cells of no more than six people. It's goal was to influence the a e k and all cambodian students in paris. who would one day become. The intelligentsia of cambodia characterized their ideology as communist. Instead they supported a simple philosophy independence. The cells met once a week and read. Marxist works such as lennon's abc of communism the communist manifesto and mouse on new democracy pol pot secretive as always preferred to remain silent during the meetings and observe but in reality many marxist leninist concepts when over his head. He didn't really understand the discussions about labor wealth or political philosophy. He would later admit that by and large he didn't understand the works of marx. Why did he did get out of. The circle was a sense of purpose. He didn't care for his studies at the radio technical school and failed most of his exams in marxism however he was beginning to see something simple clear and appealing an eternal struggle between good and evil in which he could take part. Pol pot's favorite book on the subject. Wasn't anything written by mao or stalin but was instead the great french revolution written by russian. Anarchist peter kropotkin kropotkin explained that the french revolution was instigated by both bourgeois intellectuals and the popular masses. He also wrote that. Those who owned property were by virtue against the revolution itself and that egalitarian. Ism was the only way forward chillingly. Kropotkin also argued that the terror a series of infamous massacres and public executions. During the french revolution didn't go far enough. An idea pot absorbed unquestioningly along with the rest. He'd found the truth and with every year that past. He was more eager to bring his new philosophies back home as it turned out the political situation in cambodia was about to make that possible just as pol pot was discovering his purpose in life king sihanouk's power and influence was fading in the early nineteen fifties. The monarchy was still propped up by the french. Even though the relationship was fraying. Meanwhile anti-colonial rebels called kamerhe issa. Racks were fighting in the hinterlands to rid their of the french altogether. There were also democratic rebels. Nominally led by a disgraced former cabinet. Member named son knocked pain.

"He's buried in this this miserable a little grave. I saw a picture of it on the internet and it's this is good like a broken wooden fence around it and you know the kind of corrugated iron that you see on the roofs of so many house. South Africa, you see a lot of it in the squatter camps. It's got like a piece of bent iron over a little wooden structure and then underneath this is really just a heap of Earth which is surrounded by stones and nothing smart about it in front. There's a little altar with some incense sticks and then it's got grave of Pol Pot. No one's Too Faced it. You've gotta ask yourself how he got away. So it's got free and how his grave is not been covered in concrete like, you know, no one no one worships Stalin anymore. No one worships Hitler anymore. These people have been universally acknowledged as evil dead yet this dude. He's lying there in peace in the country that he ruined and you know, I think the K Maru sled a place in the United Nations, you know, I think it's latest turn of the century. That's a trillion at that boggles the mind. I just think that there was a lot of funny things going on with the Cold War and the us then started supporting the Khmer Rouge to take the Vietnamese out cuz there was a puppet government job. In compared yesterday was a whole lot of funny things going on and maybe that's why he he got away with it. I don't know, you know, it was very sad. Like you've already pointed out that kind of flew under the radar because there was so many bigger fish to fry in terms of international players. And Cambodia just wasn't important enough for people to pay attention. Yeah, and it just shows you not all people are equal. So it kind of in in some sick way. It proves that wage inequality is the way the state of man. Yeah. So history is not always fair and and the fact that a guy like this, you know died of natural causes and under house arrest. We're off you'd commit such atrocities. It's just it's just unbelievable boggles the mind and and of course that part of the world has never fully recovered but Cambodia has a rich in ancient history. There's obviously there's famous ruins of old watch that which comes from a much more ancient civilization that actually was part of the flag. They had the main temple in Angkor Wat as the symbol in the middle of their communist Democrat. People's Republic of kampuchea that had that that symbol on their flag. Apparently there are museums you can go to in Cambodia now where they have just walls with skulls almost like the raccoons and ROM or in in Paris, but many many more people that have died and and whose remains are now in these unbelievably huge mausolea. It's very lucrative country. And it's it's quite a place down into the South China Sea and it's got some of the the best freshwater fish in the world even today. So if you want to go and catch big freshwater fish you go to Cambodia, it's a nice area for fishing in it, but it's an interesting part of the world. I don't think though that it's completely out of the woods yet. There's still elements of the Khmer Rouge Alive and Well in that part of the world, there's still lots of fights between the Vietnamese the cambodians and many others. It's taking them literally 30 years or even more to recover if they have recovered from it. What a guy off. Um, not not one of our favorites but he fits into the same category as some of those Maniacs that we've covered before like Vlad the Impaler Stalin. Yes any of the others but you know, that doesn't seem.

"They even talk about Mal Pol Pot seems to be a second-rate dictator killer autocrat murderer despot tyrants, you know, he he's like got sick and running but this guy was a a maniac who was absolutely a maniac. I mean, it really does make some of these the Stalin's and Hitler's of the world wants to collect pennies. Did you have any personal life at all? I mean, were there any people close you are so you had two marriages his first marriage was to a lady that was linked to the royal family. So in the beginning, I mean yet he definitely was from the wealthier side of the world. And you have a child and I must be honest. I try to find out what happened to the child. You know, there's not much information on it. I looked at a picture of him though, and he seems like a pretty ordinary dude. He almost looks like a Cambodian version of Elon Musk. You know, he really doesn't look like a very dangerous person and this is a picture of him even in his old age before he died of what was a supposed heart attack. He looks like a jovial but he's smiling and laughing in this picture. He said on his deathbed virtually certainly in the last interview that anyone did with him that he had no regrets. He said everything I did I did for my country. Phenomenon now what what a strange world. You must living in your head. When you think you can get away with social engineering on the scale and really that's what he will go down in history full is trying the most audacious kind of social engineering that turn things backwards and try to eliminate all difference between people he tried to block people numbers machines robotics heartless. Absolutely. And and this is just one of the most evil things that could ever have been perpetrated Against Humanity. Do we know anything about the last years of his life where he was cuz you said he was in the jungles, you know up to kind of the nineteen-eighties, but where did he end up saying. Just close to the table border? So that's where you went deep into the jungle and it's been a lot of time then his Youth and that's we really got the love and you believe the way they lived you. See, that's the way that's all country must live. And so you're yep. Back then I think he was very well protected and he was a figurehead for the cameras for you know, right into the nineties already stepped down as their lead in nineteen eighty-five. He stayed in that area and he kept gorilla campaigns going on up until the nineties. Let's not long ago. So this movie The Killing Fields that already been put onto onto the circuit around the world and he was still doing Guerrilla campaigns in the Northern parts of Cambodia. I think in the end it fell apart and they had some sort of house arrest, but I think it was just a front you got away with it. And then you died, you know supposedly he was arrested by another senior Khmer Rouge figure and and they did sentence him to life imprisonment. But I mean he seems to have got a really easy cuz he did die of this heart failure as you say in nineteen ninety eight,.

Who is is like Like I'm eating like a credit card worth of plastic everyday late or whatever that metric is heating up. Plastic for coffee is like not even if it's not a freezer it's like ingesting plastic degrades faster when it's heated up like that so I might. Coffee comes with look plastic particles so when we recorded that episode like multiple people chimed in on twitter on email everywhere about the Moka Pot. Yeah the the Moka Pot is all your stove top espresso so we need to clarify this. They're not all the aluminum right. I was able to find plenty that were had plastic enrolled including the one I ended ended up buying I have like refinement out clarify y okay continue.

Inside bottling specifically bought line for better or worse that's functions is almost like a water like the electric water kettle where the heating element. It's like it's like an electric Moka Pot so John Never seen before actually yeah.

Top handle like water. vacuum-sealed heater With a dispenser so I filled it up with that I put in the little disc of espresso a change grind size and everything and then I turned it on and it took a while and then it just like all shot through really fast okay.
