The earth cast you have anywhere goes or adventure. Labs as part of that series. I don't do one where i goes because quite honestly they don't you've always heard the term what plays in peoria where it goes. Don't play in pure. There's one maybe two. And i just never got into that realm all over the adventure lab. I do have well. Technically i have one and my wife has one. My wife's came out before. Mind if you can believe that. And she has a bylined right at the beginning of a lab that says something to the effect of following and my husband's footprints. I'm going to give you some not so hidden history adventure labs bots and she goes into various places that there's history and they're they're still there but you gotta look for widely known. She did a really good job on that one. And then when my when i finally got an adventure lab. I just said you know what a lot of people like that one that she did. So i'm gonna follow through. Because i've known still more areas that she doesn't even know wow like where you know the famous place that charles limbered. I landed a plane in peoria his. You know is is epic flight but There's a place marker for it. So i put that in my lap and adventure club took on a lot of people and unlike my wife's i was able to put a bonus cash in there which spoiler alert had a hidden history on it because it just so happens. The timing was right. Where the building that. I was quoting in the hidden history as the bonus cash literally was being torn down at the same time. The adventure lab got done. So those that got i to on the bonus cash. We're able to come over and actually see through the building because they had already started knocking it now row. Now.

Well part of the problem with geocaching in the twenty twenty era is the fact that the the area has become saturated with geocaches for those first forty seven. Well for the first forty. I probably did my fair share of saturated downtown peoria to the point where you could practically walk from one end to the other and not touch ground either. Walk on geocaches so i ended up I tried to put my history caches within one or two blocks of the actual site. Okay so this was becoming more and more difficult obviously because of the saturation of the area. So then i'm like okay. And i've got people throwing ideas at me. I'm like i can't do that one because there's three geocaches already over there. I can't do that. So i said you know what i'm gonna go out from the city limits and see what else i can find. Well obviously the first step is. Let's go across the river to east be aurea which is ascension government on. Its own so i found some stuff. In east peoria placed a couple there one of them is the actual founding of each peoria which was fun to find. Not a lot of people found that one hand hand it is there and it is good information but i have sprawled out since then. I've got a a couple of geocaches about twenty minutes away from peoria. I've got One that's almost forty minutes away from peoria. And i'm just kind of going out wherever i can find history. That's you know hidden. I try to bring that back to the forefront so it sounds like there's not necessarily a in order to the series that you have to follow it's kind of whatever one you feel like doing.

So a tremendous individual and it's a privilege to host them. Here today. Tony thanks for joining the next. So the pleasure to be here, thanks for inviting me to share some of my thoughts and insights with with your audience. Absolutely my friend. So tell me a little bit about your journey. How did you decide on healthcare? So I academically studied electrical engineering and that's actually where I caught the bug Ford being more entrepreneurial minded and how I focused by professional life I used to build and race solar electric race cars really. Little coffee that I helped build up and and I started my career in consulting and during that period was great you know lots of. Ways to learn and be mentally intellectually challenged. But in two thousand, I had just finished doing work in Silicon Valley and that was the first Internet wave and lots of excitement about transformation and as I started business school I really thought about where did I want to dedicate my time and energy in terms of industry focus for several different reasons including personal wants healthcare just jumped out. I love the fact that you can build technology and it helps people live longer have better quality of life I had a couple of. Personal Peoria friends who dealt with health issues. I had an aunt who passed away from kidney failure and so all that just came together for me to say I can wake up every morning. Feeling excited that what I do is helping at least one individual of a better life love that man yeah. It's a compelling reason to choose the field and with your knowledge and background you've been able to make a big impact and so I'd love to hear from you. Tony will you think is should be the big thing. On health leaders agenda and how are you approaching it back when I started my first business in two thousand one, there was a lot of emphasis in terms of whereas the healthcare industry in the US the US at the time and fast forward through time they're still an enormous amount of of focus in the US in the healthcare sector is digital health or health tech has grown the US. Market clearly is an important one, but I'd say that equally as important that on every health leaders mind should be what can they Learn from what's happening in. Asia and Asia whether Asia's an opportunity or not is there are there things that Asia offers in accelerating growth and scale and product that can be leveraged for for their business and couple of facts about Asia that I think are important for plus billion people forty four countries over two thousand languages spoken and normally large region and from an investment perspective this two, twenty, eighteen we saw the Asia approaching the same amount of investment to help tech startups is in the US style so within the next. Eighteen months you'll see that Asia, actual have more capital being deployed from the venture community and startups. So when I say that every health leader medically look at Asia, it's because the region is just is as awards today with with a much greater growth potential in the number of people countries. So there was a book I read recently by Kaifu who was a venture investor, in China, who formerly headed up Google China and used to work. For Apple and driving their early AI, and he doesn't amazing job painting the picture for China's one country when when important region round where they're going with a and how it's different than the US and I think that's the key thing that a takeaway for health for health leaders it's just a different technical environment data standards, and in the way that the tencent and Alibaba by do have changed China much the same way that Google facebook. Changed West is lots of learning that can happen man that's fascinating stuff Tony and folks I forgot to mention to you that Tony Lives and works in Singapore. So he's he's been there for the last five years this time around but definitely, a global health leader focused on Asia that knows the INS and outs. So critical critical piece of of information there everybody. To know. Tony, without a doubt there's there's opportunity over there. The money's flowing over there. Give us an example of of what you've seen is working and creating results. Yeah. The landscape for Asia is complex As I said, there's lots of countries and so before a answered that question, let me give a little bit of context as to how to think about the region. So. One is mentioned China and you can group Hong Kong and China together from thinking about one of six hubs in the region. The other hubs are the Indian subcontinent, which obviously is driven largely by India, but there's other countries their third. It'd be Japan for the be the Korean. Peninsula, which includes South Korea Fifty Southeast Asia Singapore and then six to be Australia New Zealand and I didn't do these in any order of size of just kind of went north to south and regret yeah, an each hub has. Similarities that that make a logical grouping whether it's economic development or cultural lifestyle history or climate.

He was on a daytime children's program where he played the guitar and Banjo. And in that same time period, nary was in a folk band. And then she gave birth to their youngest child Joe. Some pretty cool people I. Think they sound very interesting. He does. And she s in a folk band I. think that's really cool and it was the seventies. So they were kind of hit by guests. Yeah, probably. John's hard work eventually paid off. You got hired at W. M. A., l.. which at the time, the seventies was the most popular radio station in Washington, D.. C.. And John, was a pretty talented radio personality. So working at this station's worked as a fill in disc jockey, he read the news and he performed in a band, the multitask. Yeah John and Mary were both Pretty Witty People very well-spoken. So March Twenty, ninth nineteen, seventy, five was unseasonably warm in the suburbs of Washington. DC. Catherine. And Sheila Lyon. Ages ten and twelve were on spring break from school. John had worked the night shift the night before and drove home at six. Am that morning and went to bed.

She led the older one, didn't always want to spend time with their little sister, but recently, the two would become close played together like friends. But John Woke up that afternoon to an empty house. Mary had gone bowling and the boys were off playing with friends in the neighborhood. Mary came home with their younger boy. Joe Soon, after John Woke up, then he went back to bed for nap before dinner and Mary went and Rick. Some leaves in their backyard. When the sun began to go down, Mary really began to worry about her daughters. They were usually really good about being home for dinner and Sheila would call if they were at a neighbor's house playing. But Sheila had called and there had been no sign of the girls. But this is nineteen, seventy five. Your mind is not going to go to objection at this point. Nobody really thought like that. No, not then now. So they went ahead and had dinner with the two boys waiting for the girls to show up assuming they would. and. When there was still no word after they finish dinner Mary began calling around to all of their friends. No one had seen them though. So the family drove around looking for the girls and as time passed and they looked for their daughters in the Dr, the alarms really began to go off in their heads that something was wrong. So that's when they decided to call the police. But most runaways. The lions sisters, and they were nearly always found within twenty four hours. So when these girls were still missing overnight, the police began to realize that this was a case that was different. And the idea of follow play was becoming a real possibility at that point. The John and Mary told the police that this was just totally out of character for their girls both were honor roll students, and they both followed rules Catherine who went by Kate. Was the outgoing.

I'm not letting you Alexis consciously I did because he said it without just rolls right off the tongue to leave so dialects at conscious okay. Well what is trying to say before I was so rudely interrupted as we've tried three times now to do the killing at least try and You know there are a lot of technical difficulties when you're trying to record remotely with the Internet. We can't hear each other. It's like nothing is going right for us so I hope that this one works. Billy you look and we're also zooming. We can see each other. But Billy looks so bored. I'm sorry I am alive. Yes barely barely alive. Billy year little nook look so it looks like a movie set. I gotTa tell you that lamp. He told me we had a pitch meeting with the ray lamp doesn't belong there. That's a door. He put that there because he thought his background was to Yes boring so it is. He staged that. Little Nook for this exact. Because because let's be honest when you've been and Oliver listeners can understand this evolved on zoom calls. How many times are you looking at the people on the calls? And how many times are you looking at yourself and like your surroundings and picking apart things about yourself and things about your surroundings staging your background? That's what I'm saying. That's what I'm saying. What you're saying is that people only pay attention to themselves. Knowing gives a shit about your background and yet here you are staging yours but Do Narcissism Billy. What does this lamp represent in Zoom? Call like if somebody is doing zoom call with you all describe it. It's like one of those. What is it made out of silk? String or something like still Strang Victoria. It's like a Victorian land that you would get that it's not vintage now for me. I've had it for thirty years. So that's vintage. That'd be vintage for you guys. Since he'd be three years old when I bought. Where did you get in? I don't know probably a store in Long Island okay so anyways my question was okay billy. Silk Strength Cream colored lamp that he has in the right hand corner of his zooms setup. What does that represent to your zoom participants in a pitch meeting? What about you that? I'm going to shine light on the bad evil doers and bring justice by anyways. Billy Alexis told me that you have an idea for killing time. Do you want to do? I have a couple of things have comes from something and I WanNa Lexus. To describe it. What are some the weird recipes or concoctions that you've created from the food that you have on hand? I what we know. You always have something weird going on me. Oh yes so over there. It's very Incredible DASH so basically starts with a piece of Delhi whether it be Turkey or ham. Whatever your preferences. Some people don't eat ham that's fine. I support Monica meter. That's fine Turkey is also good so you take a slice of Turkey and you slather cream cheese all over at. Meanwhile the US I mean that alone would be amazing but it gets better than you take a long pickle spear and you like sorta slice it so it's even longer narrower you you make it half as soon as it would have been and you put it on the Peace Deli meat and then you roll it like Sushi roll and the like the handroll and you make little like Sushi rolls out of this little meat cream cheese pickle situation equipped anything else avocado. You could put a tomato. You could put a green whatever the whatever you want. But it's literally the best thing of every and so. Do you eat these with a chopstick or are you eating these as it? A finger. Food Dude depicting. He's a finger food. It's like it's like a finger finger single payer's it's a finger sandwich and no it's amazing and I make them as like a mid afternoon snack so I like to just small three small meals. But he'd like to big snacks a day and that's one of them and it's incredible. I mean honestly I've done the Turkey cream cheese concoction before it is. I actually did last week. Delicious snack but add a pickle in there. I was telling you earlier. It has been near. Damn impossible to find pickles during this pandemic and I finally did so. I'm going to add my pickle to my Turkey cream cheese. Roll Up Sushi. Roll tomorrow. Dude Dude please do it and then a Hamlin. I mean any deli meat. You do not know Ham for Jack but neither listening Cam grow actually with the recipe calls for I do Turkey. 'cause I'm not a big Ham eater either but I did buy some ham because I was craving the authentic recipe and it was fantastic. I highly recommend. And Billy use that you wanted to try this yourself. I did. I did want to try that and I am not a hey would say an adventurous eater now billy e when we get Sushi. Billy gets the weird into you know with. Spaghetti Times that he order Spaghetti and steak from a Japanese restaurant. I yeah well you know what Alexis. There's something that I get from the store. That's that's kind of similar you can get ham or Turkey and cheese and crackers and it comes with two Orios. It's called tastic. Yeah we've talked about it but we did get lunch. Ables vary not even more than a month ago as just a little snack when we were recording damage. They are so good. They've got to tell you I have like a whole foods and pavilions and gallons have like created like a healthy launchable and I have like four. My Fridge like yen a pack. It's really get it's like and they do one pursuit. Oh and crackers and like some grapes and they make them like fancy. Oh it's just like a mini like a personal cheese. Play exactly exactly. There's also there's also I think like Hillshire farms or something does a adult legible as I like to call it with Melba Toast and Prosciutto and to twenty of these in my fridge. Just as a backup. I need some of this shit. This really del. Okay well I have a question so you know everybody's been binging Shit. We talked about Tiger King last episode. What is your favorite binge of quarantine? Thus far I cause me Jack talked about this before we recorded little fires everywhere all cut up now. I watched it all in one day. It was the best. Shit I've seen in my life since big little lies it is very very big little lies ask so if you liked big. Little Lies. Little fires everywhere. It's the same vibe. It's everything about is very similar better. It's even better in in. It's so funny. I was watching it last night and I was thinking to myself like. How do the writers do it? Everything pays off in a way like everything they set up episode one pays off in episode eight in this very poetic Sort of socially relevant way. And I'm just like it's some of the best writing. I'm definitely seen TV. And I mean wreath Reese WITHERSPOON. No-one dislikes that check. She's Amazing Carrie. Washington. I mean. It's it's your back up. Pack the right. It's really just the writing in the parallels you can see in today when I see today meant to prior to the pandemic feminist issues. They really address a lot of them. I mean I know that's like an afterthought now with everything that's happening not to me but I just you know I don't want to offend by saying like it's the forefront but Yeah it's truly the best writing and one of the BASHO's I've seen a long time and there are parts about it that I think are predictable in a way where you start off an upset and you're like well obviously this is going to happen and it does. But in the most twisted up way and then you throw an entire different storyline. That makes the one thing that you thought was a big deal not really matter. So the way that they're doing is tying everything together. It's a nice twisted web which I always like an a show. It's very saying where they're paying shit off way later. Right like the cliffhanger on the most recent episode. And you guys won't know what that is. I'm not GONNA ruin it. But it's the most mind-blowing cliffhanger because it's not what you expect and it's just it's an incredible show. That's all set. We'll take whatever you've been binging. I've been binging comfort food. I've been binging the office. That's it are you an office by like I love the are. The office is when I was editing. My Book I went from episode one to the last episode just with it in the background. It's just comfort food. It's comfort food for a lot of people in the nation to have noticed like on Netflix. The numbers of people watching the office has been insane. Yeah there's a lot of people watching tiger king and Tom and that drug scandal show. That early car did which is really good. I'm episodes into that how to stop a drug scandal or whatever. I watched yesterday bench the entire thing in one day. It was great but it still is..

"As well. So Jose was sent to prison in answer as to why this happened remained elusive but once he wasn't prison. Jose started a correspond with and then have phone calls with a reporter. Here's what he told. Reporters Denise rebels about the beginning of his life so apparently Jose was put in foster care at three years old in Colorado and it wasn't until he was almost eight years old. He was adopted by Susan. Antonio so you didn't know about this. Susan Antonio adopted child at seven years old. This is what Jose said to this reporter quote. I had a lot of anger issues to begin with. I didn't make friends easily as school. He was then asked if he thought these anger issues had come from being in foster care he said yes quote. Actually I know that for a fact. I've been angry ever since I was three probably. He then said I've gone to therapy ever since I was adopted but I'm not really good at confronting my emotions so most of the time. I felt like it never really helped. Jose had tried to kill himself at ten years old and he's written a suicide note so that's another thing we have to look at here. He aged of course and when he became an adult he said a VAT that with his two parents working at Bradley University. He felt a lot of pressure in school saying he had dyslexia in that. He never felt like he could make his mom proud unquote he said but eventually just stopped caring about make air proud. I know I know one time. She we were talking about Lincoln or something and I had already had my leap in all set up or something and she like made me get up in front of the class and like show her body might Lincoln page and I remember being very not scared about it but I was just thrown off five. She was super encouraging. You know that it was okay and what I had done was like really good. You know for my future kind of thing. I think that's one thing I remember the most about it. I I think she'd probably restrict But she was also very lucky. Li and Mike Energetic so I could see her being like a really fun kind of parent too as well. She wasn't she wasn't like that strict professor by any means but she was just very passionate about what she taught and everything so I can see her. You know going into that. And she's very passionate about you know college. It definitely made me think like a while like this could actually happen to you. Know someone I know Kind of thing. 'cause before you know you you read about it you watch upon the stuff on it and you just never think that you would actually know someone who would be a victim of motor and you know just kind of changes your perspective and trying to make sure cherish people more. I guess she shown so naturally with a case like this. There's a lot of speculation and controversy and discussion on the Internet in. Its wake and people want to know. Why did this happen? So people looked at him being in the foster care system. He was adopted at seven. He had foster care experience as a young child. Could that have contributed to this? What about the scientology aspect? Scientology's a group that notoriously shunned psychiatry. Could some of Jose's psychological red flags have been ignored or missed completely in some discussions? Susan was described as overbearing remember. Jose had talked about wanted to make our proud than than stopping and she was the one that was the the disciplinarian for the pants in the family could that. Abedin contributing factor. But you know what? There's a lot of stuff there whenever you're trying to make sense of such a horrific act. We know that the foster care system isn't perfect but there's a lot of people that go into foster care and they have a wonderful experience. There's a lot of people that You know not everybody. Scientology goes and kills people and not everybody certainly with overbearing. Moms is going to go and do something you know who knows what caused this tragedy. It's just as possible that Jose was a sociopath would have turned out the same way even under the best of circumstances so in their Porta conducted that interview with Jose from behind bars. She asked him what he was setting in college. Around the time it's murders occurred and he responded with quotes. Ironically I was studying child psychology. I had a pretty rough childhood and I wanted to help kids the able to go through their childhood better. I know it'd be able to relate to what they've been able to go through so in. This conversation occurred eight months after the death of Susan Antonio in throughout this entire conversation. Jose implied that he killed them. He's used very free about discussing it in very uninhibited while he discusses and when he's asked if he misses parents he says quote no not.

"Probably longing to be letting sad your sorry but I not if he hasn't done and October which is doing now. All I know is that I would just become one way or the other either. Just kill myself for just moved away so I think it's clear we know that Jose says he didn't like his parents but he is in the minority in that most people really love them. Name is Dan Smith and I'm a professor in the Department of Communication. I've known Tony and Susan the entire time that they've been here at Bradley and there were fascinating couple because if you met them separately you never would've put them together There were a perfect combination of complimentary part. Susan didn't want the spotlight but could not avoid it because Susan was incredibly passionate about anything most particularly about her students. She was a leader on this campus. For efforts for student success students who were in their first generation students who had particular difficulties and she she believes so much the necessity necessity of this opportunity of education that she was willing to do anything for any students. Tony work more behind the scenes but Tony was was not only competent but incredibly generous kind to a fault patient and the perfect complement to her because they were very much a combination of fire and ice and that Susan was in the spotlight and Tony was making sure that the spotlight was on her. So we've lost a tremendous example of what life can be when you're.

"He told the detectives that essentially he was tired of them so we waited until they were asleep. He went into their bedroom with a knife. He used pepper spray to distract them and incapacitate them while he stabbed his dad and his stomach and the neck before moving onto his mother where he did the same thing later in the interrogation Jose gave the detectives second version of this story which included also hitting his parents with a baseball bat which disoriented them after his parents were dead. You wrap them in a tent and a tarp and put their bodies in his dad's SUV destroy their cell phones. They tried his best to clean up the scene using supplies from under the kitchen sink bleach and senior movers to try to get blood. Out of carpets. He throughout the betting on his parents bed and they staged the house to make the look as if a burglary had gone bad for moving. Tv from the living room among other items the first thing was. Oh from the crime scene that it they. The police assume that they were were no longer alive. And there was a struggle of some sort 'cause I believe there blood in the bedroom and stuff and and then I don't think it was very shortly after they like announced that that The Sun confessed to it. So then after that That was released so it was. It was a very short time frame from When the cops were there you know checking everything out to when he actually confessed to wake the whirlwind. You you don't WanNa like imagine like what their you know. Their last moments are just be terrible. You know this Mug shot and all the sixers. I've ever seen him or very very creepy. I mean I don't want to assume anything obviously but he just doesn't look very well I don't know how you look at someone's picture and you can just be in. There is that they're not all there just almost like an evil in his eyes. I don't know if you've seen his his mugshot. But it's just very it's like chill. Do 'cause the IT and Jose told him that the killings were planned only a few days before and is if his confession. Couldn't get any more shocking. He then dropped a bombshell. He hadn't acted alone. He had help in the form of his friend. Twenty-year-old Matthew Roberts so para side the killing of one's parents is rare. It's not unheard of. You know it's a species of crime that people who rent what what is highly unusual is for this type of crime to help one thing to go and kill your parents which is rare but actually have helped it. I can't think of any other situation with but I also think it's interesting. How is just I think it's one that helps him dumped their bodies And he like knew about it I think he was in the house at the same time they were murdered. He didn't and that in itself like having a friend help you just like what kind of person I mean. That's that's also just very odd to me. I guess you know your friend tells you that. He wants to kill his parents. You know I would not help him their bodies or or anything. That kind of stuck out to me and a little bit more just because yeah until his parents but also blind was involved just weirder because he probably you know. He probably knew them if he was his friend. So there's a lot going on in life right now and if you're like me you really need an escape and my favorite escape that I've been turning to recently.

Today that's GEICO DOT COM matthew. Roberts was there when the slayings occurred and then he helped Jose clean up the scene and dispose of their bodies. Jose was charged with two counts of first degree murder for murdering his parents when detectives asked Jose what his motive was he said. The why doesn't matter and Matthew Roberts was immediately taken into custody to be questioned once matthew was in an interrogation room. He told police the same thing. The Jose did he had been there. He knew it was going to happen and he helped. So why? Would anybody do this with their friend? Police start to look at Matthew's background and they learned some disturbing things as well as observed dark pattern of behavior. Matthew had a rough upbringing and culminated in a terrible car accident that gave him a head injury and he also had a history of failed suicide attempts in fact in May of two thousand eighteen only five months before the murders occurred. Matthew tried to kill himself by jumping off a water tower and Prince Phil lived but he hurt his arm so badly that it was amputated as a result he was released from the hospital in August. And the Ramirez were murdered. A little over two months later Matthew Roberts who I was only arrested and charged as an accessory to the killings but he was later charged with murder once the full scope of his involvement came to light rights and with these chilling. Confessions the fear of those who loved Susan. Antonio were realized. I mean it's terrible. I felt terrible. You know 'cause you would never ever think that a you know stillman don't do that to their mother and you know you'd never I mean you don't ever think it would happen And I know it really shook Bradley's community to the core 'cause I believe at the same time they also lost a student or I'm the same time so it was. It was very somber there. There was just a lot of like before that all came out. There was just a lot of rumors too. I think one was like I definitely remember seeing one that they thought it was like a family member but they didn't stay ton necessarily they thought it was like a family. Member comes into ROB's I remember that one a lot of that was like lottery or a family member coming in. He did not like his parents I knew he was adopted Which I don't know sat me that difference in his mind or not But from what all is red heard that it was he just straight up did not actually parents and in one of them dead I don't think there ever was any more of of release like motives in that. I could never imagine doing that. 'cause some like even apparent or any family member like. I don't know what what not trauma that. Just what goes through your mind when you're thinking that and then you know acting it out it just you know. I can't even imagine you know Deal he was hurting in some way that you know. He couldn't expressed to his parents. Or you know you never. You never know in what came along with Jose and Matthews. Horrific confessions were also the location of where they had dumped. Susan and Antonio's Bodies Jose provided police with instructions to get to the site where he threw his parents bodies into the speed river and he didn't have an exact location so we gave them what he believed to be. The location after a day of searching the remains were pulled from the water the following day. Taken into autopsy for an official. Id so after conclusively identifying each of them. The autopsy revealed that both Dr Susan Bill De Ramirez Antonio Ramirez Baron suffered severe head in body injuries as well as multiple stab wounds. The extent of the catastrophic injuries may pinpointing the exact cause of death nearly impossible but with the coroner could tell as they fought for their lives and had many defensive wounds. According to court documents quote the stab wounds were pretty significant throughout their body. Their multiple defensive ruins as well as on the upper arms so they bought. Lee. Didn't go down without a fight. Four days after the arrest of Jose and Matthew Bradley University held a vigil for the slain couple Bradley University community was understandably horrified an online tributes to Susan Brill Day Ramirez began showing up immediately written by scholars around the country. Who admired her work? The vigil was held in the Student Center ballroom at the place couple of so much. The Bradley University.

"The first thing that I it was that she was missing I guess they had shown up to her her class and then her husband didn't show up to his job. It was. It was definitely alarming 'cause she was never one to miss a class but she was always after investors. That would go to the very last minute class. You know never would let us out early kind of thing. That really struck me very odd. That 'cause I it was just that they were missing or they didn't report and then it was the whole. It looked like someone broke into their house and after that it was kind of kind of scary and worrisome I remember seeing Palos. I believe 'cause I I still infringe the thought of Bradley people. I think the university or someone related to university posted about how she was missing kind of thing and then it very quickly developed into. Well you know despite inside that it looks like some had broken in kind of thing. Everyone was just kind of frazzled. And the instinct is always to hold out hope in cases like these but the fact that there was dry blood at the scene caused the police to fear the worst. They went over what they did know. So far Susan Antonio's cars were at the scene so they didn't leave in their own vehicles. They thought about the possibility of a random burglary which was possible. But Unlikely. Due to the remoteness of this home it'd be very difficult to do. An initial canvas of this home without being seen or noticed but that being said in some cases of homes isolation itself can be a target especially in rural areas where crystal meth tends to be an issue. Police wondered if a student at the school. Maybe with a vendetta could be implicated. Somehow after all Bradley University seemed to be the nucleus of this families lives so while this double missing persons investigation is picking up speed. Were the case started spreading throughout the community and the media. Local police appeal to the public for help in locating the prominent and well-liked couple Bradley University's president said in an email to all of their students faculty and staff stating the two employees were missing and he ended his email with quote. Please be sure to check on your colleagues and support one another. As the Bradley family deals with the situation and quote so people are obviously scared. Who will be the next to go? Missing from their homes inexplicably police start by questioning family members and colleagues everyone who knows them is terrified and obviously fearing the worst. Because there's no way either then would just willingly vanish colleagues. There were able to confirm each of them had been at the university that Thursday the day prior to being reported missing by their son and as please prob- those who knew the couple best they start to learn a bit. More about the couple's son. Jose they learn that Jose had been adopted in either two thousand four two thousand five at around age seven years old. They run a background check on the twenty one year old. They find that he has no criminal history. No history violence whatsoever. Which makes them think okay. Who'S JUMPING FROM? No no violence no criminal activity to making their parents disappear so this is good. They also find that the twenty one year old didn't attend Bradley University however he did take classes at the local Community College Illinois Central College. That's interesting whatever. They also learned that Jose had been in the foster care system in a long history of behavioral issues in discipline problems with his parents. Okay so this is something to pay attention to but also having behavioral issues is common. I definitely can speak for myself when I say I've had them when I was a kid. Then it's along leap between teenage angst and having behavioral issues to being responsible for Y. Your parents have mysteriously vanished so on paper. Nothing is jumping out to them about Jose's history but then one of the couples colleagues tells them about a two thousand eleven incident that piques their interest when Jose was thirteen years old. Bradley University. Police filed a report. He apparently had written some words on a mirror in the bathroom of an academic building. The writing on the Mirror said quote. I want to kill my parents. Okay but this is coming from immature and underdeveloped mind of a thirteen year old. Does this information hold anyway here at all and I think that's one of those interesting things that if something like this didn't happen that would be such a mindless unimportant event in this kid's life but because his parents did go missing and maybe there's some suspicion on him now it's important absolutely and ask think that the notion of you know. I feel the fact that he was adopted in there. I actually had reluctance to do that. Because being adopted is not a variable. That should count against you. You know what I mean But I think for for this case it. It's something the police were looking at. You know what I mean like this. The these pillars community went missing. There were trying to deconstruct everything that could help them with. Elite won't it could have gone either way to where it was looking at if they were good parents to him as well and if there was a domestic issue or something like that in their household. And it's obvious that they were going to look at Jose Jose closely because he was out the scene so he you know when you're looking at means motive and opportunity. He's there he has the opportunity because he's right there. He's at the scene and obviously not not only that he is related. You know he's the son so you're going to have to look at all avenues hearing something like this though with the. I WanNa call my parents. They're interviewing a ton of people and collecting information but this is definitely something that. I'm sure raised their eyebrows right. But I gotta say one more thing. I can't tell you how many times I had. I love my parents but I was a really troubled teen and I remember my dad reading my journal. I think I was thirteen fourteen or something and I said horrible things my my dad. 'cause it was angry a person and he was like. Do you really think it's about me. Do you really mean that and I was like no. I'm so sorry. I didn't think you've read my diary. That's another thing too though where it's like every not every thirteen year old. I take that back but there are many innocent thirteen year olds that number one barely even know what killing or death is and to just shit because there are other angsty friends or writing it and they're trying to fit in or they're feeling all these hormones and emotions that they don't know how to get out like there's so many different explanations for that than actually thinking that somebody is violent and is gonNA kill their parents so the more police are talking to different people the more they're uncovering what appeared to be hatred that Jose had for his parents and seemed to be bubbling over. So of course the next thing to do is to question Jose directly and it turns out the Jose had gone to his mother's center by himself and according to those who knew him is something that he would not normally do so. This is kind of suspicious. So does this act suggest that Jose was praying for the safe return of his parents or was it an expression of guilt and remorse. The police were about to find out. So police are prepared to rip out all the tools in their skills of interrogation arsenal. They were GONNA question Doosan Antonio Son who they suspected to be involved. They get him an interrogation room to their surprise. None of those skills would be necessary because very matter of fact and unapologetic tone. Jose tell police that his parents weren't missing. His parents weren't in fact dead and he had killed them.

Deborah Treisman Reads David Foster Wallace
"Chosen a story to read and I asked listeners to submit questions for me to discuss through our twitter and facebook pages. The story I've chosen is good. People by David Foster Wallace which was published in the New Yorker in January of two thousand seven all the different angles ways. They come at the decision together did not ever included the word for had he wants said. It avowed that he did love her. Love Cherry Fisher then it all would have been transformed. It would not be a different stance or angle but a difference in the very thing. They were praying deciding on together. I chose a story in part because it was the last piece that I worked on with David Foster Wallace before his death in two thousand eight and because our correspondence about the story stayed very vividly in my memory and came to mind when he died. The story was eventually part of the Pale King. David Foster Wallace's posthumous novel which was published in. Two thousand eleven at the time that he sent it to me in December of two thousand six. Though I'm not sure that he knew it was going to end up as part of the novel he was working on. It may have been a separate story then or it might have been an outtake that he wasn't planning to include in his note to me. He identified it as a short fiction. Submission the fact. The story is in a sensory thinking of Hemingway's nineteen twenty seven story hills like white. Elephants also makes me suspect that it was first written as a self contained piece. In Wallace's story and in Hemingway's a young couple for would not be convenient to have a baby talk awkwardly around the idea of abortion without ever using the word in the Wallace Story. Unlike in the Hemingway. The young couple are devout Christians who have to grapple with the concept from that point of view as well as you will hear. I'll be talking some more after the story but now here's good. People by David Foster Wallace good people. They were up on a picnic table at the park by the lake by the edge of Lake with part of a down tree in the shallows half hidden by the Bank Lane Dean junior and his girlfriend both in blue jeans and button up shirts. They sat up on the tables top portion and had their shoes on the bench part that people sat on a picnic or fellowship together and carefree times it gone to different high schools but the same junior college where they had met in campus ministries. It was springtime and the parks grass was very green in the air suffused with honeysuckle and lilacs. Both which was almost too much. There were bees and the angle of the sun made the water of the shallows. Look dark there had been more storms that week with some down trees in the sound of chainsaws all up and down. His parents street their postures on the picnic table. We're both the same forward kind with their shoulders rounded and elbows on their knees in this position the girl rocked slightly and once put her face in her hands but she was not crying. Lane was very still an immobile and looking past the bank at the down tree in the shallows and it's ball of exposed roots going all directions and the trees cloud of branches all half in the water. The only other individual nearby was dozen space tables away by himself standing upright looking at the torn up hole in the ground. There were the tree gone over. It was still early at an all. The shadows wheeling right and shortening. The girl were thin old checked cotton shirt with pro coloured snaps with the long sleeves down and always smelled very good and clean like someone you could trust and care about. Even if you weren't in Love Lane. Dean had liked the smell of her right away. His mother called her down to Earth and liked her thought she was good people. You could tell she made this evident in little ways the shallow slapped from different directions at the tree as if almost teething on it sometimes when alone and thinking or struggling to turn a matter over to Jesus Christ in prayer he would find himself putting his fist in his palm and turning it slightly as if still playing and pounding his glove to stay sharp and alert and center. He did not do this now. It will be cruel and indecent to do this now. The older individual stood beside his picnic table. He was added but not sitting unlooked also out of place in a suit coat or jacket and the kind of men's hat lanes grandfather wore and photos as a young insurance man. He appeared to be looking across the lake. If he moved lane. Didn't see it. He looked more like a picture than a man. There were not any ducks in view. One thing lane did was reassure her again that he'd go with her and be there with her. It was one of the few safer decent things he could really say the second time. He said it again now. She shook her head and laughed in an unhappy way. That was more just air out her nose. Her real life was different where he be was the waiting room. She said that he'd be thinking about her and feeling bad for her. She knew but he couldn't be in there with her. This was so obviously true that he felt like a nanny that he'd kept on about it and now knew what she thought. Every time he went. Set it it hadn't brought her comfort or ease the burden at all the worse. He felt the stiller. He sat the whole thing felt balanced on a knife or wire if he moved to put his arm up or touch her. The whole thing could tip over. He hated himself for sitting so frozen. He could almost visualize himself tiptoeing. Pass something explosive. A big stupid looking tiptoe like in a cartoon the whole last black had been this way and it was wrong. He knew it was wrong. Knew something was required of him. That was not this terrible frozen care and caution but he pretended to himself did not know what it was was required. He pretended it had no name. He pretended that not saying aloud. What he knew to be right and true was for her sake was for the sake of her needs and feelings. He also worked dock and routing at ups on top of school but a trade it to get the day off after they decided together two days before he had awakened very early and tried to pray but could not. He was freezing more and more solid. He felt like that he had not thought of his father the blank frozenness of his father even in church which had once filled him with such pity. This was the truth lane. Dean junior felt son on one arm as he pictured in his mind an image of himself on a train waving mechanically to something that got smaller and smaller as the train pulled away. His father and his mother's father had the same birthday. A cancer Sherry's hair was coloured almost corn blonde very clean the skin through central part pink in the sunlight. They'd sat here long enough. That only their right side was shaded. Now he could at her head but not at her different parts of him felt unconnected to each other. She was smarter than him and they both knew it. It wasn't a school lane was an accounting and business and did all right. He was hanging in there. She was a year older twenty but it was also more. She had always seemed to lane to be on good terms with her life.

A Brief History of Staphylococcus Aureus
"Years ago. I acquired an infection in my left eye socket caused by the bacteria. Staphylococcus Aureus my vision clouded and then. My eye socket swelled shut and I ended up hospitalized for over a week how I experienced the same infection anytime in history before nineteen forty. I would've likely lost. Not just my I but my life then again I wouldn't have ever lived to acquire orbital so you lights because I would have died of the staph infections I had in childhood. Stella Aureus is not a normal part of the human microbiome but many people perhaps around a third are like me. Nonetheless hosts two colonies of it on our skin or in our nasal passages or in our digestive systems. These colonies are usually harmless but while anyone can get sick with staff those of us who live omitted. Every day are more likely to suffer infections. When I was in the hospital the infectious disease. Doctors made me feel very special. One told me you are colonized by some fascinating Lee. Aggressive Staff He told me I wouldn't believe the petri dishes if I saw them and went on to call my continued existence. A real testament to modern medicine. Which I suppose it is for. People like myself colonized by fascinating. The aggressive bacteria there can be no harkening back wistfully to pass Golden Ages. Because in all those pasts I would be dead in. Nineteen forty one. Boston city hospital reported in eighty two percent fatality rate. For staph infections. I remember as a child hearing phrases like only the strong survive and survival of the fittest and feeling terrified by them. Because I knew I was not fit or strong. I didn't yet know that when humanity protects the frail among us and works to ensure their survival the human project as a whole get stronger failing to understand that has held our species back for Millennia and in fact still does because staff often infects open wounds. It has been especially deadly during war near the beginning of world. War One. The English poet Rupert Brooke Famously wrote if I should die. Think only this of me that there's some corner of a foreign field that is forever. England Brookwood indeed die in the war in the winter of nineteen fifteen but not in some corner of a foreign field but instead on a hospital ship of a bacterial infection by then there were of course. Thousands of doctors treating the war's wounded and ill among them was a seventy one year old. Scottish surgeon Alexander Ogden who decades earlier had discovered and named Staphylococcus Ogden who sported a magnificent moustache throughout his adult. Life was a huge fan of Joseph. Lister WHO's observations about post surgical infection led to the use of carbolic acid and other sterilization techniques these dramatically increased surgical survival rates. In fact after visiting lister and learning from Him Ogden returned to his hospital in Aberdeen and tore down the sign above the operating room that read prepare to meet the God. No would surgery. Be a desperate last ditch effort. It could be safe and clean and survivable. Ogden was so obsessed with listers carbolic acid spray that his students wrote a poem about it. The spray the spray the antiseptic spray. A would shower it morning night and day for every sort of scratch where others would attach a sticking plaster patch. He gave the spray. It's all right but it's no Rupert Brooke. At any rate Ogden had good reason to give the spray. His first wife Mary. Jane had died after childbirth a few years earlier at the age of twenty five. There's no record her cause death but most maternal deaths at the time were caused by postpartum infection often due to staphylococcus aureus and dogs had hundreds of his patients die of post surgical infection so no wonder he was obsessed with antiseptic protocols. Still he wanted to understand not just how to prevent infection but also what precisely was causing it by the late. Eighteen seventies many discoveries were being made by surgeons and researchers about various bacteria and their role in infection but staphylococcus was not identified until Austin lanced a pus filled abscessed leg wound belonging to one James Davidson. Under the microscope. Davidson's abscess was brimming with life. Ogden wrote my delight may be conceived when there were revealed to me beautiful tangles tufts and chains of round organisms in great numbers. Ogden named these tufts and chains staphylococcus from the Greek word for bunches of grapes and they do often look like grape bunches plump and just a little bit oblong and also quite yellowish green. A few years later a German scientist noted that there were in fact several species of staphylococcus and named the one Ogden had found Staphylococcus Aureus or the golden staff but Ogden wasn't content with just seeing the bacteria. Obviously he wrote the first step to be taken was to make sure the organisms found. In Mr Davidson's pus were not there by chance. So he set up a laboratory in the shed behind his house and began trying to grow colonies of staff eventually succeeding by growing them. In the medium of a chicken egg he then injected the bacteria into guinea pigs and wild mice which became violently ill. Ogden also noted that staphylococcus seemed to be quote harmless on the surface despite being quote so deleterious when injected I have also observed this in so far as I am not much bothered by having my skin colonized by Staphylococcus Aureus but find it. Dilatot serious indeed when it starts replicating inside my eye socket. James Davidson by the way went on to live another forty years after his staph infection. Thanks to a thorough deriding and Ogden's liberal use of the spray the spray the antiseptic spray but staphylococcus aureus remained an exceptionally dangerous infection until another Scottish scientist Alexander. Fleming discovered penicillin by accident. Actually one Monday morning in nineteen twenty eight Fleming notice that one of his cultures of Staphylococcus aureus had been contaminated by a fungus penicillin them which seemed to have killed all the STAPH BACTERIA. He remarked allowed. That's funny Fleming. Then used what? He called his mould juice. I wish I were making that up to treat. Couple patients including during his assistance. Sinus infection but mass production of the antibiotic substance secreted by. Penicillin proved very challenging. It wasn't until the late nineteen thirties. That a group of scientists at Oxford began testing their penicillin stocks. I on mice and then in nineteen forty one on a human subject. A policeman named Albert Alexander who'd been cut by shrapnel during a German bombing raid and who was dying of bacterial infections in his case both staphylococcus aureus and streptococcus. The penicillin caused a dramatic improvement in Alexander's condition but the researchers didn't have enough of the drug to save him. The infections returned and Alexander died in April of nineteen forty one. His seven-year-old daughter Sheila ended up in a local orphanage. Scientists began to seek out more productive strains of the mold and eventually found one on a cantaloupe in a Peoria Illinois grocery store that strain eventually became even more productive after being exposed to x rays and ultraviolet radiation. But essentially all penicillin. In the world descends from that mold on that one cantaloupe in Peoria. That's not the astounding thing about the story though the astounding thing is that after scraping off the mold that became the world's supply of penicillin the scientists in question eight the rest of the cantaloupe

Goop's Elise Loehnen on the benefits (and challenges) of a 'polarizing' brand
"At least welcome to the PODCASTS. Thanks for having me so you've been a coup for six years. I'm sure you run into people at parties and they're like goop. Oh my God. I've heard of it and they go into some sort of you know viral sensation and stuff like this but what what do you explain to them that that group is about what makes gook unique so it started out as a as a simple newsletter once a week out of Gwinnett kitchen in London in two thousand and eight just her experiences in the world she felt like she had access to incredible thinkers. Doctors healers and just experiences in general. We're all not what it was born out of the stuff that she was interested in and then by proxy the stuff that her friends were interested in and we haven't we've obviously grown significantly in the last past eleven years but it's essentially still kind of the same. We do content and food travel wellness. which is what? We're probably most known for beauty fashion but it comes from that place of open-mindedness and curiosity and asking questions so it was never a media the We don't report stories in a typical way where we go out and then craft things into a story we just ask people. We published straightforward. QNA's QNA's people can just get the information and decide for themselves. Yeah so talk about the challenge or you know there's there's there's always like opportunity and challenge on both sides of Having a personality at the center. Yeah I'm going to Paltrow is is a big personality One hundred percent probably recognition among The type of audience you're looking to attract But at the same time there it it comes with a challenge because this started as a personal rating and now it's not going to threaten all these articles. Yeah so obviously you as you can imagine their benefits and drawbacks the benefits being that we get at a tremendous amount of interest and attention for almost everything that we do And it brings you know she really is able to bring the spotlight and mainstream things that have existed for a long time. It might not yet. I'm part of popular culture and And I think as a as sort of an icon herself or an example of what it means to live like this it gives people sort of an immediate opportunity to understand some ways what the brand is about And then the drawbacks of course are that she is a public look person and people like to project things onto her and all their and that's part of our culture and that's that's fine project she's just polarizing for so many people That word comes up a lot. Yeah and you know as I think a lot of women are who are unapologetic about what they believe and who who they are in the world like. She's never asked for permission she's never said. Hey is it okay with everyone. If I'm no longer an actress and I become a business person and someone in media And then she's not she doesn't bow down like she's unwilling to sort of stop in the face of criticism and I think for a lot of women should come to represent what it means to continue to stand up for yourself and not be cowed and to like live and not discomfort. Is it any different being the the the chief content officer of a brand built around a personality than just to be of a brand not built around and personality. Yeah you know. I grew up at Lucky magazine. And it's funny because when lucky started it was also kind of polarizing people love to make fun of it and then it was the most accessible launch in the history of continent asked and the secret secret of lucky was that can France created a magazine that she herself wanted that her friends wanted and then sort of again it had that ripple all pool fact within media and at no point. Lucky that I am. I still here this sometimes when I go to media conferences and no point was there this sort of uttering of the audience. She is a woman named Gloria. Who Lives in Peoria and has two point three children and like this is what we're going to create for her? It came from inside like like it was Don in a way that wasn't Sort of prepackaged with this phantom person in mind it was done like sort of from the heart art as cheesy as that sounds and so because it starts with Gwyneth it's similarly like there are real people that are making the content and there are people who were specifically making it for when you're like if someone I don't know how the pitch process is but like does it go through like a test where you're like this isn't GP Is it any different like that. Then just like a brand. Because when you're figuring out what makes sense for brand there is some sort of primers around. I just wonder if it's different because like It's sort of has her endorsement right now. And I think that that's that's a really really good and interesting question and because one of the things that we do that obviously we get a lot of attention for as we write about practices that people find power and so like we're berry known in the culture for talking about Jada Aches and it was never that stuff that we do never prescriptive never like everyone needs to drop everything and go get a J. D. it was you know. Qna Hey with someone who found a lot of power in that practice and so like. I've never used one not the idea that you could It's that's not the idea of being prescriptive and sort of this is what we do therefore you need to do it to instead. We're sort of examining all of these things and saying some people find a lot of power in this practice and we're not gonNA shame these women or pass judgement on them you might might be resonant for you or something more Western might be more resonant for you so talk about the audience because you mentioned how goop can be polarizing. And that's that's obvious And I think a lot of people fixate on it and I think it. It doesn't really matter necessarily be as like a lot of the people that find it. Quote Unquote polarizing or controversial. Or something like this is probably not for them So who is it at four. You know I think I think it's seventy percent of our readers. Are Women. Actually a lot of men read the content male sex. There's a male section and a lot of the You know food travel a lot of the wellness non gendered and it's not supposed to be gendered but it is a primarily female audience And they typically are Affluent although there's a range to not as well I know people think it's only for wealthy women which is in Tracy Tracy Anderson. That's what we talked earlier about. The Tracy Anderson which is a high end studio. I guess if you charge it up money. It's not a gym. It's a studio but yeah so it's it's typically women. I think women have been largely ignored. That was another when I was at Conde I remember being twenty three twenty four and then editor there and realizing realizing that somehow I was target demo like how is it possible that I'm the target demo when I don't have any money and yet the sort of age out I'm out of the I'm forty I'm Outta the target demo and I have obviously have kids but I have more money than I had twenty years ago. That's for sure and yet so I think for a lot of women it's like. Oh suddenly not only sort of creeping towards the invisibility that seems apparently they say come with paramount PAS menopause deposit I'm not I'm a relevant to marketers and so I think that we And then when you compound on that the way that women are often ignored by their are doctors And sort of what's happening as we surge against the Patriarchy at all sort of starts to make sense so it's like a woman who I think has really come into her power. Who wants to be her own authority in her life? He wants to make those decisions unilaterally whether it's about travel or food and just wants the information who doesn't want to be told what to think but just wants information.

Dr. Aldon D. Morris Discuss History of Sociology Pertaining to Black America
"John Leo Hinton Junior and welcome to another edition up in black miracle on news leaks program Doctor Alden. Moore's professor of Sociology and African American Studies at Northwestern University and president elect of the American Sociological Issue Logical Association in Black America. Many of the early white sociologists were actually quite racist and they preached that that in in many ways that black people were inferior and therefore they deserve to be at the bottom of the society because of their meager talents and intellect. So they did not pay much attention to the horrific Jim Crow period period of slavery. And so on. And so what that means is that the factors like oppression and Discrimination and Terence fourth and not bigger into their now about why black people face so much why they were and why they were at the bottom of society and And and this might be interesting you but the first to sociology books were actually written all race actually written by two I believe they were white. Mississippi and established in one thousand nine hundred. Five small group led by Lester. Ward William Grand something to Franklin Jennings and Albion small at a meeting any of the American Economic Association. The American Sociological Association held his first meeting the following year in Providence Rhode Island the membership in in one thousand nine hundred sixty two at one hundred fifteen for the first several decades the activities of the society or sending on publishing a journal holding an annual annual meeting and performing various administrative functions. Such as record keeping sending out communications and so forth and forty nine the first executive executive officer was appointed on a part time basis and in one thousand nine hundred sixty three. The Association established permanent headquarters in Washington. DC since the organization was founded. There has only been three African American presidents PRYATTA. More selection. Dr Al and Moore's will be the one hundred twelfth president of the American Sociological Association. He was served one year as president-elect and then become president of the Association in August Twenty Twenty he has taught at northwestern university. Since one thousand nine hundred ninety eight I was born and raised and Wyler Mississippi. Then I left and when I was twelve thirteen years old to and moved to Chicago and has lived in Chicago most of my life. I'm currently in in Chicago. Oh went to school and Peoria Illinois then I don't Long Island New York first job with the University of Michigan which has stayed about eight years and then I moved to North Western University. And I've been there ever since came to North Western in nineteen eighty eight idea about your childhood. Oh my childhood well. I was born in Jim Crow Mississippi. And I remember that I was just a boy I was six years old. When Emmett till was lynched He was lynched only about twenty miles. From where we we live. live with my grandparents and it had a tremendous impact on me and my generation. Some of us now refer to it as the Emmett till generation and I I remember going to the Colored School Having to sit on the back of buses Drink from Colored Water Fountains and do be be insulted and all kinds of ways especially my grandparents Were very strong people and I as a boy. I didn't understand why they were being called a boy aunt. And all of this kind of stuff so I experienced Jim Crow Racism in the heart of the South and Rural Mississippi. And then of course we were my mother and her siblings. Almost all of them have been part of the great migration and so they always lived in Chicago. Saint Louis and Milwaukee Detroit other places and so I as a little boy. I thought that The North was really really the promised land that they were really gold streets and milk and honey and all of that and so I also knew that I was going to come to Chicago once my elderly grandparents. It's passed and when they did. I was shocked with a double dose of new racism the the northern version. And so I you know I went to finished elementary school in Chicago. A went to community college and Chicago worked in factories in Chicago and And experienced a great deal love Racism and so on and Chicago of course This was the early seventy they sixties. The civil rights movement was still going on on the black power movement in particular was raging and so Also would assist that. They're the change could happen because I wouldn't have those movements and when I saw on television what was happening in the civil rights movement and all I. I grew up with a lot of hope. I thought we were going to change this thing. I had no idea that we would be where we are here. In the twenty thirty first century now you grew up in Chicago doing the radio station. WBO winds high days and allies Mohammed. And Jesse Jackson Operation Pushing Russian mayor. Daley tell us about that experience. It was a very A very rich rich experience by the time I was in Chicago. UGH Oh well I. I witnessed these a lot of the civil rights movement. The march on Washington and The Birmingham confrontation on television. 'cause I was in Chicago. Oh I was deeply influenced by Martin Luther King Junior and And then of course here in Chicago Jesse Jackson was his protege and so ooh I participated in protests and marches and so on that involved him and many many others Chicago was a very very Rich kind of Environment Like now it has some of the best and the worst tendencies of America and I went to a predominantly Lee White High School Where we were not as like people like students we were not considered to be smart? We were not considered to be college materials and so we weren't prepared appeared to they. They did not teach us to be those things and But yes I mean on on. You could drive down one street and park in front of me. Elijah Muhammad's house and you can go on a little bit east and you'll be at Jesse Jackson's headquarters and and so you know operation breadbasket is getting all of that. I do vaguely remember when Dr King about the Movement to Chicago in nineteen sixty six and there were marches for fair a housing and there was some of the most racist outpouring that the nation has ever seen When in one of those margins Dr King was hit upside the head with a brick and he said Ed that you know? I've been in Birmingham and I've been Montgomery. I've been in Mississippi but I've never seen the kind of racism that I'm experiencing here in Chicago so it was a mixed bag growing up here. I mean on the one hand. It was a vibrant strong rich black community. You know we had ebony and jet and all of the Black businesses the one that we had so many movements going on and and leaders both young and old. I was in community college when Fred Hampton and Mark Clark where fascinated they were black panthers and And that was the first time I saw Jesse Jackson in person. He came to my community college. I'll southeast junior colleges. In the end he spoke to us and And and I was like wow man. This is one of the most powerful individualism was ever heard so I remain active on movements but also You know Had never no one in my immediate family. That never gone to college so I didn't have any plans to go to college and And then the Vietnam war start raging and and I was working in Spiegel's warehouse and And I knew I didn't want to go to Vietnam and I ended up going to a community. Unity College us. Because then you could get for with the ferment. Kept you out of the service for a little while so so I did that and that was. That was the very beginning. Some of my college experience I in fact With somewhat afraid to go to community college because you know Com being a first generation student. I thought that everybody was going to be so much smarter than me. And then I was GonNa say things get laughed at it and all of that but I I went on. There was still more appealing.
