You revere somebody of his stature And his success level politically speaking. No i'm not overly interested in a lot of politics in general right But i am interested in somebody that knows how to communicate and somebody who does it at the level that he did it for so long and i gotta tell you honestly the stories that i've been privy to behind the scenes is we've recorded this thing. If kind of blown me away. He reminds me a lot of guy that i used to work for for a long time. and hearing hearing people like brian say he was like another father to me or earing just your emotion in talking about them and getting the chance to know some of these other people that have interacted with an and been part of russia's life for so long has been really really special and i'm really really proud to have been part of this project. This podcast has been about you know at the end of the day no matter what you watch on. Tv no matter what you listen to on the radio no matter what you read online. There's another human being on the other end of that content and what. I have been really interested in over the course this series and i hope others have paid to is laying down all political ideology and laying down all what you read in the newspaper or online. Or whatever is that there's this guy and there was so many more layers to him than you ever really got to hear on the radio or that anybody ever really knew that to me is the whole purpose of why we've been doing this podcast. It's been absolute pleasure to Produce this end. Especially i have to say james to get to know you and work with you You are a pros pro. And i know just in reading some of the comments from People that have left reviews on the podcast and Just getting feedback from people in in my own orbit the level at which people speak of you They couldn't be couldn't be more right. You are a truly a gentleman professional and it's been an absolute pleasure to work with you. I'm blushing and that's hard to see by the way thank you. Thank you so much chris. Kelly are other producer. Phil tower phil. I'm going to ask you the same question while in a in a different kind of way. What have you learned from from from producing this podcast series about the life of rush. Limbaugh the guy behind the golden. Eib microphone. Well i'm gonna give you a quick simple answer and that is have a dream. Never give up on. It rush decided. That radio was his calling he. We knew that as a young kid he hated going to school and that was his vision fired from his first seven and in the end he was successful because he had a dream he had a vision and he kept to it and along the way met some great people and he stayed humble and grateful until the end. And what a great american success story that is james and you were. You had an inside c. To the whole thing so i mean what an incredible honor In the end he was just a guy who loved what he did. And we've heard that from our parents and mentors along the way you gotta love what you do in life and rush loved radio and he loved his show. He'd love being with his audience. He was there until the end. And i need to make chris and you blush because chris when i received a call from craig. Kitchen the godfather of this whole project. If you will. I told him. I said we need a masterful audio guy and introduced chris. Kelly my co producer. Who makes his podcasts. Sing james and you know that the way the music is mixed everything together and you james a storyteller who gave each of us chills as we heard some of these stories. Gosh gosh well. I'm going to say that. I've been in radio all my life almost as i look back on now almost all of my life. I've been in his radio business. Of course we're working with rush. Limbaugh was not an amazing blessing. It was a a chance of a lifetime that has made my life and working with both you fell and you. Chris has been such a delight. You rush to say you know. The job of callers was to make make the house look good not to suck up or anything but but to bring out the best and working with two people who are the very best at what they do makes you up your game. And that's what both of you have done for me. You've made this a pleasure. You've made this a remarkable experience on. Never forget and i cannot thank you enough for the hard work in energy you put in people that are not in this business. Don't understand the time that it takes just to produce one episode and you guys have now. Both of you have spent so many hours going through this. Podcast with me and going through rush. Limbaugh's life with me and the way that you produce this. We hope brings all of us help those that. Listen to rush those that new rush and those that didn't know rush will find an appreciation for what an incredible man he was based on the production skills that you guys brought to the table. I just can't thank you so just this week. In one of the previous episodes i mentioned the dream that i had of rush trying to figure it out to just this week i had another dream As we sit here with the final episode of rush limbaugh the man behind the golden the ib microphone and in this dream dawn. Brian and i were sitting in the control in rush. Was doing the show. And let me tell you. This was so vivid. It was such a vivid dream that at some point i looked dawn and said how is this possible. How will we hear. Listen to rush in the studio with us. This has to be a dream. And then i woke up. Well my life with rush was kind of like a dream. It happened also widely. Now when i look back on it when you look back over three decades of your life and and you've spent three decades with someone who's had an amazing impact on your life. What can you say. It's hard to believe that we're at a stage now. Went where we're talking about in the past tense. But here's the thing. Rush will never be past tense for three decades. He connected with millions of people. He didn't just connect with their brains with ideas. He connected with their hearts. He connected with people in a way that no other media personality in our history has connected with people and that is evidenced by the stories that people tell among themselves some of the stories that you'll see in some of the reviews of this podcast and and if you're fortunate enough to read in some of the emails or other communications at people send with each other rush impacted people in a way that most broadcasters could only dream of he loved what he did he loved his country he loved his.

"In New York. You can reach us Look, we have talked about a lot is real. What's going on in our borders? The reaction to the squad? And we have even more coming. If you were paying to the attention. If you were paying attention to the news this week, you could not help but see story after story after story from the mainstream press And defense. Representative Cheney. Who was high, you know all of a sudden, this woman Is considered to be America's foremost conservative by the mainstream media doing battle against the evil trump. And the Republicans air supposedly acting like horrid sheet when they tossed her out of her number three leadership position. First of all, who cares who's in leadership. Most people don't even know Who's in leadership because it's very rarely reported. You may see the the minority leader out there. You may see the of course everyone knows who Pelosi is. But how many people even know who her second is. Who's her? Third who's the third ranking member in the Democrat Party? Most people don't know they don't care but all of a sudden, the third ranking member in House leadership Is the most important figure in America. And we have, um, at least define it. Now has taken over that position and the smear jobs on New York representative at least two phonic were totally amazing. That stuff will get into with diet without domestic policy adviser Diana me you're welcome to weigh in on the two and anything else that you have heard about so far or that you want to comment on that was in the news this week. James Golden a case Nerva You want to talk with me? 808 48 w A B C 8489222. There was some other stories, but first even before I get to the new stories, let me just thank you all about something. I am the host of a Podcast. That was released this Wednesday. Rush Limbaugh on the man behind the golden key. I'd be microphone. And this podcast is a 12 part series on Russia's life. I was honored Beyond measure When I was asked if I would be the host of this And Already it has become one of the most popular podcast. The first episode in the United States. We we got Rankings on that yesterday. It was released yesterday. So I invite those of you who interested? And listening to that podcast. Downloaded from wherever you get podcast. I hope we linked to it here. W A. B. C On my page. And I just want to thank all those involved. Two amazing producers Chris Kelly, Phil Tower, working with me on that We've got more episodes. It'll be dropping one per week. And thanks to all of you who have shown interest in that And who have made such amazing comments about it. I want to turn back right now. The immigration yesterday, Joe Biden had six illegal immigrants. With him in the Oval Office. To make a point about DACA. This is what we're getting from this administration. There is nothing illegal about illegal immigration. There is nothing in there. Policy to protect American borders as you've just heard. From Tom Homan. Representative Kim Young Kim. In Texas, says that the cartels are thriving. And they're also putting migrants coming into the United States at risk. There was a story this week that broke my heart and I and if you saw it, I hope it broke your heart, too, because it's unconscionable. A 13 year old girl. Wandered. Across the Mexican border into America unaccompanied all alone had no way To reach after she turned herself in. To our border agents. They tried to contact her parents in Mexico. There's no way to even reach the parents she sent alone. Across a country 13 year old girl. By herself. No adult at all. Nobody with her. This is insanity on parade as dangerous a world as we live in You have this going on large scale of our border makes absolutely no sense whatsoever. What is also not making sense is what's going on in energy. The pipeline shutdown to hackers. With many people across the Eastern seaboard scrambling for gas. While that's going on, we learned that energy Secretary Jennifer Grand home. Has a stake. And energy.

"Just like in a Twitter Tim Daniels reminds me that there are people who believe the whole universe is flat not just as a timber knowledge mentioned earlier in the hour about flat earth there's but at that Antarctica is a wall and the other planets have landscapes beyond that wall and all have their own ice walls all right and Hey Phil tower giving a shout out to grand rapids tonight along the coast to coast AM radio network standing by is Nick Caruso there's also a they also mentioned for you Nick on Twitter to let somebody sent me the covers of of your book to pass this along so thank you and believe it or not is the new one the definitive field guide to earth's slimy creatures we were just talking about possums because I just wouldn't thought they would fit but you said it's really just the the front and the back at the end of the business ends of apart right yeah yeah so when they feel threatened it's an involuntary response for them to to play dad and its accompanying by you know frothing at the mouth so they secretive extra wine we go live that walks up and then they also secrete this bottle smelling green secretion from there and I'll glance out I mean who would only eat something right now all the awful life right so this theoretically of a of a fox or a you know we'll for something more in the mood for some possum they come up to and they be like no thanks that's that's been dead for a while for I thought in your book other was interesting I didn't realize this that that possum females have jul reproductive tracks and that possum males are will be the way we would describe it bifurcated where they would like a like a plug into a wall the thing with into both of those reductive tracks at the same time is that right yeah and it's one of my favorite units is that people thought that the mail actually Maynard what her nostrils and she needs of indoor how's your health realization happened and I guess they couldn't imagine a scenario where each their reproductive tract match I believe that's how my mom explained it during the talk but I don't remember my mind went blank it was so tell me what you're slime ratings like how did you determine slime ratings are so this was all my fault there Danny ramie ID and I and we got together and and discuss you know the characteristics of the line is it are they producing this stop all the time or the just during special scenarios so we kind of made a a list of everything and had criteria for how we rank them and it was it was a rather involved process so this was but it was a process between us here as we are right we push ourselves of the slime experts so over a couple of beers well virtual beers she was in the U. K. this was all done online and are all we've we've actually never met each other shop really how we don't we were still working on it one day but three books and you've never met note that so every day at least you face time or Skype I mean you know each other look like yeah yeah guy talked over Twitter and you know email and all that stuff so so I mean we we made it work there's a romantic comedy in that for somebody out there I'm telling you it so the but unlike the slimy assed creatures may be the ones that most of us don't know about maybe because they're in the deep sea and and the fact is the slime that is produced in nature tends to have a purpose right ambience not just they're doing it for sport or it's not that it has an evolutionary purpose right yeah and and most aquatic organisms have some type of slime and help them maneuver through the water more efficiently but then you also have the species like the hagfish that yeah when they when they get threatened they want to protect themselves they're gonna slime themselves and everything around them so that they don't get eaten yeah and and they do this I've I've seen the bucket experiment thing where you put a bunch I had fish in a bucket and then agitate them yeah it it never gets old it's not anything how much it can expand yeah I saw that on TV you want to live like that as soon as but then they're not the only ones because this summer what's the parchment worm is that what it's called all right Sir it's because that that's like when you're higher rated slime creatures yes so there are a type of warm their nose polychaete worms there which means they have a lot of hair everyone's better than and there's there's a lot of different species some of them will create kind of like a muted net and that's how they tracked that floating by in making defeat everything that gets trapped in there the species that live in the DC that if they get attacked though actually make this vile and luminescent new case that they have shoot out on the predator and then the predator becomes visible and other things are more likely to use that thing it's a great defense but you know I mean we you like knowledge obviously you do in the book that humans to a degree you know when we're ill we create various things like snot for example but that's not the norm for us right it's most primates don't do if they involved out of the slime that was there ever a time in human evolutionary cycle where there is any archaeological suggestion that we were slimy here in the past I don't know the answer to that I would but yeah I would too but after reading your book I'm like well but if the whole idea is to evade or deceive well that's an interesting thing that we never develop that other animals do other and other for that matter other you know I mean like marsupials dead where they that's how they do but we never didn't seem like we went through that phase other than like a bad cold and you don't eat somebody's at about is like I have a cold well I mean I don't want to eat you wanted it but yeah I'm not suggesting you but but if you were you would draw the line at somebody who's in in that place and so but I like I like it like how about things that are well the things that are living but we wouldn't they're not by people or anything like like trees and corals and stuff like that yeah so Corey graves ample a slimy creature that they have a mucous covering on them so specially the species that live and titled areas were gonna you know during low tide they might be exposed so that mucus can help protect them from drying out and that's that's seen across a lot of different species that that's fine or new gets or some type of slimy covering can help species prevent water loss and that makes sense but then are there others that use that too is a way of are there any time are there any times that slime is used as not just a defense but an offense yeah yeah one of my favorites are velvet one that they have leased line can and on their face and it essentially acts like an untethered hose like if you ever heard a hose on full blast we just let go that's what it looks like and they shoot this slimy sticky thread on there for a and it just immobilize them completely and I can just you know go to go to town eating eating there immobilized great amazing and hippos I was surprised to see hippos listed as a chapter on slimy creatures I wouldn't think of a hippo is slimy shining but not slimy right yeah this is another great evolutionary adaptation so I'm gonna try this is by saying you know don't go out Robert half on you after explaining what they do because you might want to go do that so but hippos produce this pink sweat that is it helps protect them from infections so they you know have because they're very aggressive so it actually helps them keep keep infection the way but it also helps them prevent UV damage because yeah and so they will stay out in the African sun on longer so it's it's pretty incredible and and you know it's not quite like ours where it got a little bit more flying to it which one sounds like there's there's sensually secreting sunscreen yeah don't rubber have audio and well yeah but then to that so you're saying that even because it you mention their aggressive so when they get in those battles they scrape each other all the time and this is what keeps them from picking up more infections from from from water sources which may or may not be very clean the third exactly right water spittle bugs odds are some insects that no feed off of plant sale and they make and their their their names which is between alarmingly it all well actually kind of coop themselves in this phone dot sap yeah and it's cannot hide them from predators that also doesn't taste good which is common theme in the book it's amazing how many times we came across and instead were scientists who study the limelight like one minute faces and it's a fact yeah well it and there's a lot of things even just by the name of spittle bug I would want to taste I don't know why he would go I think I'll taste of spittle bug and see what happens but I would need about third week so he is known for you now so what are what are the most dangerous of the slimy creatures because like snakes are not slimy which we some people think of them as they are because they're kind of shiny again and they they are they looks you know when they move they come the gland the light off of them as though they are but they're not so what's the most dangerous of the slimy assed creatures on on the planet I guess it depends on on who you are you know there there are some species the south American leeches that will actually live in the nose and mouth of of mammals including US if you happen to go in the water yeah how can he pretty terrible yeah really I think that's actually reaction I have reading any of your entries it's either yeah hi so hurry up because like or you oh my god but so wire why would they be so dangerous the ones that are showing up.

like I like it like how about things that are well the things that are living but we wouldn't they're not by people or anything like like trees and corals and stuff like that yeah so coral is great temples a slimy creature that they have a mucous covering on them so specially the species that live and titled areas were gonna you know during low tide they might be exposed so that mucus can help protect them from drying out and that's let's see across a lot of different species that that's fine or mucus or some type of slimy covering can help species prevent water loss and that makes sense but then are there others that use that too is a way of are there any time are there any times that slime is used as not just a defense but an offense yeah yeah one of my favorites are velvet worms that they have these line can and on their face and it essentially acts like an untethered hose like if you ever tryna hold on full blast and just let it go that's what it looks like and they shoot this slimy sticky thread on their prey and it just immobilize them completely and I can just you know go to go to town eating eating there immobilize straight amazing and hippos I was surprised to see hippos listed as a chapter on slimy creatures I wouldn't think of a hippo is slimy shiny but not slimy right yeah this is another great evolutionary adaptation so only a Texas is by saying you know don't go out rather have on your after explaining what they do because you might want to go do that so but hippos produce this tank sweat that is it helps protect them from infections so they you know it was a very aggressive so it actually helps them keep keep infection the way but it also helps them prevent UV damage because and so they both they out in the African sun on longer so it's it's pretty incredible and and you know it's not quite like ours it's got a little bit more flying to it which one sounds like better there's there's sensually secreting sunscreen yeah don't rather have audio and well yeah but then to that so you're saying that even because it you mention their aggressive so when they get in those battles they scrape each other all the time and this is what keeps them from picking up more infections from from from water sources which may or may not be very clean that they're exactly right water spittle bugs odds are some insects that no feed off of plant sap and they make and their their their names which is between the largely on the at all well actually kind of coop themselves in this phone dot sap and it's kinda hide them from predators that also doesn't taste good which is a common theme in the book it's amazing how many times we came across and instead were scientists who study the limelight like one minute taste it and it's a fact yeah well it and there's a lot of things even just by the name of spittle bug I would want to taste I don't know why he would go I think I'll taste of spittle plug and see what happens but it would be either but in the area so you he's known for you know so what are what are the most dangerous of the slimy creatures because like snakes are not slimy which we eat some people think of them as they are because they're kind of shiny again and they they are they looks you know when they move they come a glint hello light off of them as though they are but they're not so what's the most dangerous of the slimy assed creatures on on the planet I guess it depends on on who you are you know there there are some species the south American leeches that will actually live in the nose and mouth of of mammals including US if you happen to go in the water yeah yeah I can hit pretty terrible yeah really I think that's actually reaction I have reading any of your entries it's either thanks so hurry up because like or you oh my god but so wire why would they be so dangerous the ones.

K. this was all done online and are all we've we've actually never met each other shop really how we don't we we're still working on it one day yeah three books and you've never met no so every day at least do you facetime or Skype I mean you know each other look like yeah yeah guy talked over Twitter and you know email and all that stuff so so I mean we we made it work this is a romantic comedy in that for somebody out there I'm telling you it so the but unlike the slimy is two creatures may be the ones that most of us don't know about maybe because they're in the deep sea and and the fact is the slime that is produced in nature tends to have a purpose right it means not just they're doing it for sport or it's not that it has an evolutionary purpose right yeah and and most aquatic organisms have some type of flying to help them maneuver through the water more efficiently but then you also have the species like the hagfish that yeah when they when they get threatened they want to protect themselves they're gonna flying themselves and everything around them so that they don't get eaten yeah and and they do this I've got I've seen the bucket experiment thing where you put a bunch of hack fish in a bucket and then agitate them yeah it it never gets old if anything how much it can expand yeah I saw that on TV you want to look like that is so but then they're not the only ones because this summer what's the parchment worm is that what it's called all right Sir it's because that that's like when you're higher rated slime creatures yes so I tried to warn the noticed how did you learn there which means they have a lot of hair everyone's better than enters the room a lot of different species some of them will create kind of like a muted net and that's how they tracked through that floating by in making defeat everything that gets trapped in there the species that live in the DC that if they get attacked though actually make this file luminescent new case that they have shoot out on the predator and then the predator becomes visible and other things are more likely to eat that thing the great defense it is you know I mean we you like knowledge obviously you do in the book that humans to a degree you know when we're ill we create various things like snot for example but that's not the norm for us right it's most primates don't do you they evolved out of the slime that was there ever a time in human evolutionary cycle where there is any archaeological suggestion that we were slimy here in the past I don't know the answer to that I would but yeah I would too but after reading your book and like well but if the whole idea is to evade or deceive well that's an interesting thing that we never develop that other animals do other and other for that matter other you know I mean like marsupials dead where they that's how they do but we never didn't seem like we went through that phase other than like a bad cold and you don't eat somebody's at about is like I have a cold well I mean I don't want to eat me wanted but yeah I'm not suggesting you but but if you were you would draw the line at somebody who's in in that place and so but I like I like it like how about things that are well the things that are living but we wouldn't they're not by people or anything like like trees and corals and stuff like that yeah so coral and grey temple a slimy

a large namely the at all well actually kind of coop themselves in this phone dot sap and it's cannot hide them from predators that also doesn't taste good which is common theme in the book it's amazing how many times we came across an instance where scientists who study the wind was like one minute faces and a fat yeah well it and there's a lot of things even just by the name of spittle bug I wouldn't want to taste I don't know why he would go I think I'll taste of spittle plug and see what happens but we'll be there by nine thirty so he he's telling her you know so what are what are the most dangerous of the slimy creatures because like snakes are not slimy which we some people think of them as they are because they're kind of shiny again and they they are they looks you know when they move they kinda glint light off of them as though they are but they're not so what's the most dangerous of the slimy assed creatures on on the planet all I guess it depends on on who you are you know there there are some species of south American Legion that will actually live in the nose wheel and miles of of mammals including US if you happen to go in the water yeah how can he pretty terrible yeah really I think that's actually reaction I have reading any of your entries it's either thanks Hey look like or you oh my god but so wire why would they be so dangerous the ones that.

coast AM radio network standing by is that Nick Caruso there's also a they also mentioned for you Nick on Twitter to let somebody sent me the covers of of your book to pass this along so thank you and believe it or not is the new one the definitive field guide to earth slimy creatures we were just talking about possums because I just wouldn't thought they would be you said it's really just the the front and the back at the end of the business ends of apart right yeah yeah so when they feel threatened it's an involuntary response for them to up to play dad and it's accompanied by you know frothing at the mouth so they the creek that extra wine we go live that walks up and then they'll go to create this foul smelling green secretion from there and I'll glance out I mean who would only eat something right now all the awful life right so this theoretically of a of a fox or you know we'll for something more in the mood for some possibly come up to it they be like no thanks that's been dead for a while for I thought in your book other was interesting I didn't realize this that that possum females have do wool reproductive tracks and that possum males are will be the way we would describe it bifurcated where they would like a like a plug into a wall with the quick into both of those active tracks at the same time is that right yeah and it's one of my favorite next is that people thought that the mail actually Maynard what her nostril and she needed the doors how's your health they should have I get the couldn't imagine a scenario where each of their reproductive tract match I believe that's how my mom explained it during the talk but I don't remember my mind went blank with so tell me what you're slime ratings like how did you determine slime ratings well suited

an evolutionary purpose right yeah and and most aquatic organisms have some type of blind help them maneuver through the water more efficiently but then you also have the species like the hagfish that yeah when they when they get threatened they wanna protect themselves they're gonna align themselves and everything around them so that they don't get eaten yeah and and they do this I've I've seen the bucket experiment thing where you put a bunch of hack fish in a bucket and then agitate them yeah it it never gets old if anything how much it can expand yeah I saw that I do you want to look like that is so but then they're not the only ones because this summer what's the parchment worm is that what it's called all right Sir because that that's like when you're higher rated slime creatures yeah so there are a warm they're not always you learn there which means they have a lot of hair everyone's hello and there's a lot of different species some of them will create kind of like a muted net and that's how they tracked that floating by in making defeat everything that gets trapped in there the species that live in the DC that if they get attacked though actually make the island luminescent new case that they have she got on the predator and then the prize become visible and other things are more likely to eat that thing the great defense but you know I mean we you like knowledge obviously you do in the book that humans to a degree you know when we're ill we create various things like snot for example but that's not the norm for us right it's most primates don't do if they involved out of the slime that was there ever a time in human evolutionary cycle where there is any archaeological suggestion that we were slimy here in the past I don't know the answer to that I would but yeah I would too but reading your book and like well but if the whole idea is to evade or deceive that's an interesting thing that we never develop that other animals do other and other for that matter other you know I mean like marsupials dead where they that's how they do but we never didn't seem like we went through that phase other than like a bad cold and you don't eat somebody's at about is like I have a cold well I mean I don't want to eat you wanted it but yeah I'm not suggesting you but but if you were you would draw the line at somebody who's in that place and so but I like I like it like how about things that are well the things that are living but we wouldn't they're not by people or anything like like trees and corals and stuff like that yeah coral great temple of a slimy creature that they have a mucous covering on them so specially the species that live and titled areas were gonna you know during low tide they might be exposed so that new gifts can help protect them from drying out and that's that's the across a lot of different species that that's fine or new gets or some type of slimy covering can help species urban water loss and that makes sense but then are there others that use that too is a way of are there any touch are there any times that slime is used as not just a defense but an offense yeah yeah one of my favorites are velvet warm that they have needs wine can and on their face and it simply act like an untethered hose like if you ever tryna hold on poor blacks and just let it go that's what it looks like and they shoot if flying you speaking right on their prey and it just immobilize them completely and I can just you know go to go to town eating eating there immobilize correct amazing and hippos I was surprised to see hippos listed as a chapter on slimy creatures I wouldn't think of a hippo is slimy shiny but not slimy right yeah this is another great evolutionary adaptation so only this is by saying you know don't go out Robert half on you after explaining what they do you might want to do that so but hippos this pink sweat that is it helps protect them from infections so they you know it was a very aggressive so it actually helps them action the way but also help them prevent UV damage yeah and able to play out the African sun on longer incredible and and you know it's not quite like ours to what it got a little bit more flying to it which one sounds like there's there's actually secreting sunscreen yeah don't rub have on you know yeah and while yeah but then to that so you're saying that even because it you mention their aggressive so when they get in those battles they scrape each other all the time and this is what keeps them from picking up more infections from from from water sources which may or may not be very clean that they're exactly right but what are spittle bugs bonds are some insects that they'll feed off of plant sap and they make and their their their names switching between alarming it all I was actually kind of coop themselves in this phone dot sap yeah and it can't hide them competitive that also doesn't taste good which is common theme in the book it's amazing how many times we came across and that were scientists who study the wine at like one minute feature and it's a fact yeah well it and there's a lot of things even just by the name of spittle bug I would want to taste I don't know why he would go I think I'll taste of spittle bug and see what happens but it would be either but thank the third week so he he's known for you now so what are what are the most dangerous of the slimy creatures because like snakes are not slimy which we eat some people think of them as they are because they're kind of shiny again and they they are they looks you know when they move they kinda glint the light off of them as though they are but they're not so what's the most dangerous of the slimy assed creatures on on the planet I guess it depends on on who you are whether there are some usually the south American leeches that will actually live in the nose and mouth of of mammals including US if you happen to go in the water yeah terrible yeah really I think that's actually reaction I have reading any of your entries it's either thanks it's like or you oh my god but so wire why would they be so dangerous the ones that are going up our nose so just like any other leach and they can they can draw blood from your body and you know if you have open open one can always get infections as well and so the species that actually named after the trend of those racks because the of it the large T. for so just to give you an image of yeah really it's got to be incredibly painful I was I was thinking about Komodo dragons because they're they're saliva is toxic right so even if they even if they bite you if they get one good bite and they get some of your saliva is some of their saliva into your system you can.

mammals including US if you happen to go in the water yeah yeah he's pretty terrible yeah really I think that's actually reaction I have reading any of your entries it's either thanks so hurry up it's like or you oh my god but so wire why would they be so dangerous the ones that are showing up our nose so just like any other leeches they can they can draw blood from your body and you know if you have open open one those can always get infections as well and so the species that actually named after the trend of social acts because of of its large cheese for myself if you an image of yeah really it's got to be incredibly painful I was I was thinking about Komodo dragons because they're they're saliva is toxic right so even if they even if they bite you if they get one good bite and they get some of your saliva is some of their saliva into your system you can run away but at some point that toxicity is going to catch up with you right yes and no so they do have a very vicious by age but they're mild aren't really filled with more bacteria than than another animal miles really generally when things succumb to infection from Komodo vices because of how deep the wound is and they get infection from you know going into some dirty water or something like that so that was that was actually something that we tackled in our second book some of the common animal mess well I was surprised when you wrote about ghosts but then I thought about it really did I thought wow that's weird a ghost entry and believe it or not we're talking with co author Nick Russo but but ghosts because mostly because of the belief in ectoplasm that was popularized in Ghostbusters yeah yeah and and and the the quintessential slimy goes Slimer yeah I think everyone has that that image of the of the of the ghost leaving slime trails but you know people who have what next ghosts are or have a medium contacted ghost often there's this.

"Looking at Twitter Tim Daniels reminds me that there are people who believe the whole universe is flat not just as a timber knowledge mentioned earlier in the hour about flat earth there's but at that Antarctica is a wall and the other planets have landscapes beyond that wall and all have their own ice walls all right and Hey Phil tower giving a shout out to grand rapids tonight along the coast to coast AM radio network standing by is Nick Caruso there's also a they also mentioned for you Nick on Twitter tonight somebody sent me the covers of of your book to pass this along so thank you and believe it or not is the new one the definitive field guide to earth's slimy creatures talking about possums because I just wouldn't thought they would fit but you said it's really just the the front and the back at the end of the business ends of apart right yeah yeah so when they feel threatened it's an involuntary response for them to to play dead and it's a company by you know frothing at the mouth so they secretive extra wine we go live that props up and then they also secrete this foul smelling green secretion from there and I'll glance out I mean who would only eat something right now all the awful life right so this theoretically of a of a fox or you know wolf for something more in the mood for some possum they come up to it they be like no thanks that's that's been dead for a while for I thought in your book other was interesting I didn't realize this that that possum females have jul reproductive tracks and that possum males are will be the way we would describe it bifurcated where they would like a like a plug into a wall the thing with into both of those active tracks at the same time is that right yeah and it's one of my favorite unit is that people thought that the mail actually Maynard Webb her nostrils and she needed in your house they should have and I guess they couldn't imagine a scenario where their reproductive tract match I believe that's how my mom explained it during the talk but I don't remember my mind went blank with so tell me what you're slime ratings like how did you determine slime ratings so this was all my fault there Danny ramie Audi and I and we got together and and discuss you know the characteristics of the flying is it are they producing the stock all the time or the just during special scenario so we kind of made a a list of everything and had criteria for how you rank them and it was it was a rather involved process so this was but it was a process between us here as we are right we bush ourselves of the slime experts so over a couple of beers well virtual beers she was in the U. K. this was all done online and are all we've we've actually never met each other shot all up really yeah I we don't we we're still working on it one day yeah three books and you've never met note that so every day at least you face time or Skype I mean you know each other look like yeah yeah guy talked over Twitter and you know email and all that stuff so so I mean we we made it work there's a romantic comedy in that for somebody out there I'm telling you it so the but like the slimy assed creatures may be the ones that most of us don't know about maybe because they're in the deep sea and and the fact is the slime that is produced in nature tends to have a purpose right it means not just they're doing it for sport or it's not that it has an evolutionary purpose yeah and and most aquatic organisms have some type of slime and help them maneuver through the water more efficiently but then you also have the species like the hagfish that yeah when they when they get threatened they want to protect themselves they're gonna slime themselves and everything around them so that they don't get eaten yeah and and they do this I've got I've seen the bucket experiment thing where you put a bunch of hack fish in a bucket and then agitate them yeah it it never gets old if anything how much it can expand yeah I saw that on TV you want to look like that is so to speak but then they're not the only ones because this summer what's the parchment worm is that what it's called all right Sir it's because that that's like when you're higher rated slime creatures yes so there are little worms are known as polychaete worms there which means they have a lot of hair everyone's hello and there is a lot of different species some of them will create kind of like a muted net and that's how they tracked through that floating by in making defeat everything that gets trapped in there this species that live in the DC that if they get attacked though actually make this file luminescent new case that they have shoot out on the predator and then the predator becomes visible and other things are more likely to use that thing it's a great defense but you know I mean we you like knowledge obviously you do in the book that humans to a degree you know when we're ill we create various things like snot for example but that's not the norm for us right it's most primates don't do if they evolved out of the slime that was there ever a time in human evolutionary cycle where there is any archaeological suggestion that we were slimy here in the past I don't know the answer to that I would but yeah I would too but after reading your book I'm like well but if the whole idea is to evade or deceive that's an interesting thing that we never develop that other animals do other and other for that matter other you know I mean like marsupials dead where they that's how they do but we never didn't seem like we went through that phase other than like a bad cold and you don't eat somebody's at about is like I have a cold well I mean I don't want to eat you wanted it but yeah I'm not suggesting you but but if you were you would draw the line at somebody who's in in that place and and so but I like I like it like how about things that are well the things that are living but we wouldn't they're not by people or anything like like trees and corals and stuff like that yeah so coral graves ample a slimy creature that they have a mucous covering on them so specially the species that live and titled areas were gonna you know during low tide they might be exposed so that mucus can help protect them from drying out and that's let's see across a lot of different species that that's fine or mucus or some type of slimy covering can help species urban water loss and that makes sense but then are there others that use that too is a way of are there any time are there any times that slime is used as not just a defense but an offense yeah yeah one of my favorites are bell that one that they have these line can and on their face and that essentially acts like an untethered hose like if you ever tryna hold on for blacks and just let it go that's what it looks like and they shoot this slimy sticky thread on their prey and it just immobilize them completely and I can just you know go to go to town eating eating there immobilize correct amazing and hippos I was surprised to see hippos listed as a chapter on slimy creatures I wouldn't think of a hippo is slimy the shining put not slimy right yeah this is another great evolutionary adaptation so only a Texas is by saying you know don't go out Robert half on you after explaining what they do could you might want to go do that so but it will produce this pink sweat that is it helps protect them from infections so they you know it was a very aggressive so it actually helps them keep keep infection the way but it also helps them prevent UV damage because yeah and so they they out in the African sun yeah longer so it's it's pretty incredible and and you know it's not quite like ours it's got a little bit more flying to it which one sounds better there's there's sensually secreting sunscreen yeah don't rubber have audio and well yeah but then to that so you're saying that even because it you mention their aggressive so when they get in those battles they scrape each other all the time and this is what keeps them from picking up more infections from from from water sources which may or may not be very clean that they're exactly right water spittle bugs blogs are some insects that they'll feed off of plant sap and they make and their their their names which is between alarming it all well actually kind of coop themselves in this phoned up sap and it's kinda hide them from predators that also doesn't taste good which is common theme in this book is amazing how many times we came across an instance where scientists who study the limelight like one minute taste it and it's a fact yeah well it and there's a lot of things even just by the name of spittle bug I would want to taste I don't know why he would go I think I'll taste of spittle plug and see what happens but I would need a website third week so he is known for you know so what are what are the most dangerous of the slimy creatures because like snakes are not slimy which we some people think of them as they are because they're kind of shiny again and they they are they looks you know when they move they come the gland light off of them as though they are but they're not so what's the most dangerous of the slimy assed creatures on on the planet I guess it depends on on who you are you know there there are some species the south American leeches that will actually live in the nose and mouth of of mammals including US if you happen to go in the water yeah second he pretty terrible yeah really I think that's actually reaction I have reading any of your entries it's either thanks so hurry up because like

"Talk live go ahead. Hey guys thanks for taking my call. I I listen to you as faithfully as I can't every Sunday night and it's always a fascinating show that you guys have I appreciate that and we appreciate being on W. T. K. G. One of our longest running affiliates out there so if you like the show do us a favor and call up Phil Tower and tell thank you at W tk Jeez Teller Tower the program director there and he's had his on for a long time yeah yeah he's been around longer than Dirk. It's true though that you're the subject you're talking about forgiving student loans. My wife is a bank banker and you guys were talking about. You know how the banks kind of had to have a built in hedge against defaults on loans to be true. Yes I can Kim sure you that is not the case. They may have some they may have some protections for example of someone declares bankruptcy or default default on the mortgage. If you're talking one or two at a time or a few at a time that's manageable but when you're talking one point five trillion dollars all at one that the problem you can't just you know tossed the baby out with the bathwater so to speak because that's not good for anybody. Well wait a minute of the banks the the money from thin air in the first place through fractional reserve proposing going after the banks on this one because I think that would be bad for the economy. Okay hasn't the government taking over the student loan program cases yes in some cases. The government will guarantee he the loan in other cases the government is basically giving the loan and if the government which you know has a deal with the federal our reserve which was collection of major banks to just sort of make money as it parallels money to an existence if they just decided to cancel each other's debt yet no one really loses anything in this and then it would spur the economy whereas if the government decides to if the banks if the government decides to just force the banks to eat it yeah that would be bad for the economy but if the government says all right one one point five trillion dollars in debt. We're GONNA pent meant a one point five trillion dollar coin. We're GONNA make it at a ten because we don't want to spend the money on platinum and we're going to just hand that over. We're to the Federal Reserve and that will cancel one point five trillion of our debt that we guaranteed the loans with and then poof it all just disappears but what's okay but I guess I don't follow you're saying Mark Regarding the bank here so if the bank issues student loans and some banks have done that the bank issues a student didn't loan yup. They've created the money from thin air. You talked about this. I think last night about how when you sign a loan you know authorization and they're not on the hook for it. This'll be taking them off the hook for your cancelling the debt while the if the government cancels the debt yes if the government as the bank credits the bank for their loan so let's. Let's say you're a bank. I'm the Federal Reserve. The money came out of nothing so they don't let me take and I'm the Federal Reserve all right a member bank because basically basically you can't be a bank without being a member of the reserve you at Richie comes to you for a student loan. Okay okay. He says I'd like student. Loan hundred thousand dollars created created the book Richie can't pay this was a terrible idea. I should've never backed this as the government but you're going to give the loan because I'm the government and I'm backing it right the alone for one hundred thousand dollars of money that never existed before we loaned never existed before you loaned it right now. It's exists but Richie can't pay it back and it never gets paid back doc right right well that loan is still on your books and you are responsible for it to the to the the Federal Reserve. It's been created yeah. It was created out of thin air. It's to your investors. I don't know it's it's Monday was created out of nothing right. So how can you be responsible for something something that was created out of nothing back basically all that's happening here for my understanding and by the way I'm not you know an expert at these things but you're you're just what's happening is when these loans are created headed. It's money coming out of nothing because this is the fractional reserve system. This is the sort of the benefit of these banks being tied into the Federal Reserve. They're given the ability to issue money in in these in the form of these loans that never existed before it's just numbers in a in a system so they I you know I give you this loan Ritchie one hundred thousand dollars to go to college the this whole whole loan forgiveness thing comes in and you're like what you walk away and we just basically ignore the fact that you owe us money. We just cancel the account that just means that extra hundred thousand in dollars is out there and it never gets. It never comes back in so inflates the money supply but that's already been done. The money supply was inflated when we issued the loan in in the first place so whether it comes back or not. Is it really going to make that big of a difference on inflation in the long term choirs. Here's here's had missing. Here's the thing where a capitalist economy or a capitalist society so where does it end. It's not even just about the economics in terms of this particular subject. I have a mortgage. Why can't I have my mortgage forgiven? I made the choice to buy a home run. If I'm in over my head why can't Mantha banks just forgive that loan it's about responsibility it's about life choices because and I tend to agree with you. Support the idea bank younger generation wants everything hands free healthcare free college free everything they want to have it handed to them without having the opportunity to actually earn it and have some sort of a sense of self satisfaction in the fact that they've worked what I'm in my fifties and I've earned and worked for everything that I know was would ever given me anything that I didn't back. No I totally understand where you're coming from. I mean I like I said I in favor the idea bankruptcy at all but mark you made a strong argument that a lot of these college loans were based off of fraud where these young people were told. Oh you're going to do so much better in life if you get a college college education and they don't tell you that you need to go get a degree that you can use to get a job right. I was just Jujitsu on Thursday night with a young man getting ready to graduate this year I asked him what is degrees any says Biochem. I said good for you and you know I mean he's absolutely going to be able to go out and get a job with a Biochem degree how the flute the last person I talked to last woman I talked to that was going to that school was getting a women's studies degree very in that for you can look at herself so I wanna I wanna go back to what you said initially Robert Again at the beginning of your call call because I think there's there's a lot to parse out with the entire discussion my point with saying that the banks had built into the interest rate is not saying that I I agree that wiping out one point five trillion dollars off the books. is is a good thing. What I'm saying is if you look at like payday lenders versus banks? Thanks right there. There's an inherent risk to loaning money out to people with the you know a lower ability to repay that loan right so when banks when banks or payday lenders or any lender at all assesses the viability of a loan being repaid they make a decision as to the interest rate to charge based on the risk that they're taking gene at that time right and I'm also suggesting that especially payday loans at banks that interest rate is based on the fact that they do not intend and to recoup all the loans laid that they lend out they know that not all loans are going to be repaid in order to recoup the funds. They set interest rates on people who we'll pay. Maybe a little bit higher to make up for it but the difference is between say a regular bank loan for a house if there is a default on that loan for House. The bank has an asset right right right. Try to recoup that's where they had just not about the interests that they charge. It's about the assets that they have the Laurie points today Robert Nothing I can take back yeah. You can't lock the kid up. Hey thanks for the call tonight..

inflates the money supply but that's already been done the money supply was inflated when we issued the loan in the first place okay so whether it comes back or not is it really going to make that big of a difference on inflation in the long term skit acquired here's here's a missing here's the thing we're in a capitalist economy or capitalist society so where does it end it's not even just about the economics in in terms of this particular subject i have a mortgage why can't i have my mortgage forgiven i made the choice to buy a home run if i'm in overhead why can't the banks it's just forgive that loans it's about responsibility it's about life choices because and i i tend to agree with you support the idea of banks younger generation she didn't want everything handed to free healthcare free college free everything they want to have it handed to them without having the opportunity to actually actually earn it and have some sort of sense of self satisfaction and the fact that they worked with it i'm in my fifties and i've earned and worked for everything that no one's ever for giving me anything that i didn't pay back no i totally understand where you're coming from with this i mean i i liked said i in favor of the idea bankruptcy at all but mark you made a strong argument that a a lot of these college loans were based off of fraud where these young people were told oh you're going to do so much better in life if you get a college which education right and they don't tell you that you need to go get a degree that you can use to get a job right i was just jujitsu on thursday night with a young man getting ready ready to graduate this year i asked him what degrees any says biochem i said good for you and you know i mean he's absolutely going to be able to go out and get a job bob with a biochem degree how the flute the last person i talked to blessed woman i talked to that was going to that school is getting a women's studies degree in what do you do use that for she can look at herself so i wanna i wanna go back to what you said initially robert again at the beginning of your call because is i think there's there's a lot to parse out with the entire discussion my point with saying that the banks have built into the interest rate is not saying that i agree that wiping out one point five trillion dollars off the books is is a good thing what i'm saying is if you look at like payday lenders versus banks right there there's an inherent risk to loaning money out to people with the lord ability to repay that loan right so when banks when banks or payday lenders or any lender at all assesses the viability of a loan being repaid they make a decision as to the interest rate charged based on the risk that they're taking at that time right and i and i'm also suggesting that especially in payday loans and banks that interest rate is based on the fact that they do not intend to recoup all the loans they laid that they lend out they know that not all loans are going to be repaid by and in order to recoup the funds they set interest rates on people who will pay maybe a little bit higher to make up for it but the difference is between say a regular bank loan for a house else if there is a default on that loan for a house the bank has an asset right here right right try to recoup that's where they had just not about the interests they charge it's about the assets that they have the laurie points today robert with back yeah you can't lock the kid up hey thanks for the call tonight i appreciate appreciate hearing from.
