"Studying. And so there's certain amount of still some restrictions on what I can do and work and go. But what I do go up is pretty much part base, you know, there are a few really good pubs in the area that I live in in Brixton. I make a small circle of friends who would now be described as queer, a college where I'm studying my a levels. And I used to go to the bell in king's cross, which is now a big chill house. Which is like. So I would go to places like bell where they were playing indie music and then I'd go to someone like prince Wales would be all black. And I just love crossing over the two of them. But I was really young. So there was a certain amount of just discovery in all of this stuff, you know, that there was this big smokers board of things to do and to see. But I would partly I would get drunk. I would fall down and just love being out. So did you find that you so, you know, something that older generations of queer people say on this podcast a lot. And some of them are being, what's the word? Deliberately contentious, some of them aren't. That when it was all illegal, it was kind of amazing because it was this secret underground world. And when you accessed that, if you were lucky enough to be able to access it and access it safely, it was wall to wall you in those rooms. And it was kind of amazing. That you felt like you were home in such a way that sometimes people say the problem with gay clubs, this is so generalizing, but sometimes people say now the problem with Kate clubs is full of straight people. And that's annoying. Because you don't have that thing. I'm talking about which is like coming home. So you felt like you had places to go. You had a gang and you didn't, you just wouldn't go to the places that were mainly white. Is that would that be fair? Well, I mean, yeah, I mean, I think there's a lot to unpack in what you just said. So I'm going to take it just by reverse. So in terms of where I went out, it wasn't as much I didn't go to white spaces, is another one one didn't feel welcome in those spaces. So there's that because you need to get through the door, you need to get through the way you're treated inside the fact that you only person of color there. But then there's also, I try not to come from these things in terms of a deficit. Part of the reason I went to predominantly black and brown spaces is because the music was the music that I liked. The men I fancied were in there. My friends went to those spaces. So it wasn't about I don't go to those spaces because they arranged. I go to the places where they fall through, and they nourish. And if you're coming home. So I think that's really important. But I do think in some ways that we have become victims of our own success, right? And by that, I mean, and it wasn't just about when it was illegal because I came out of time where the community was starting to flourish, you know? Especially after the darkest days of the epidemic. And I would go to spaces which were predominantly male or predominantly queer. And they were really, really safe. Now, I think the challenge that we've got today, and I go out a lot less because I'm old. Is it when you go to places which are much more mixed and straight folk are there? There's sometimes becomes a lack of respect for the fact that it is a gay space. So I can't read the amount of times I've gone to bars and clubs. And I'm really happy that straight people are there. But when I start getting harassed by straight women, who think, well, actually, I'm in a gay pub and it's okay for me to touch you. It's okay for me to take up your space. That becomes a whole different fish. But respect is here. But there is also something quite magical when it is a queer space. When we know that we can be ourselves authentically and when I've been in male only spaces, which again, we have to go, they can become quite toxic if we're not. As we have seen with some of our more popular venues which no longer exist, because they became toxic, but there is something quite magical when you've been oppressed for a really long time that you can look around and actually I'm totally safe and I can be exactly who I want to be. But we have to manage that carefully. It's a thin line. It is a really thin line and actually I used to spin out a bit in those very, very male gay male environments because I just found it too much, like I felt like it wasn't that I wanted straightness. I just wanted some mix. You know, because it was just very predatory, actually. It just became, it felt like it was just all about transactional sex. And I was like, this is working for me. Yeah. I mean, you know, there's a whole period of, you know, tops off muscle ball boys, you know, you won't look the same. The whole market of dancing to the same beat. And it's like, I'll come on boys, mix it up a bit. And if you were ever so slightly different to that, you were not welcomed. You were not invited. You know, if you just look at places like Nick knock, you know, a friend of mine went to Miko lost recently and then a binary and they wore a dress, and they were in venues and the cis men were like, why are you in here in the dress? Really? And that's the issue. Yeah. It's so funny that, isn't it? Because I'll preface this with saying people write in and tell me your version. But I think that sometimes I can find that those gay male spaces that you're talking about are trying to win at masculinity. And I'm much more drawn to the places where it's all a bit mixy and no one's trying to win anything. Everyone's just expressing. Particularly because I didn't feel like I could win. You know, I didn't feel like I could win in those spaces. I didn't have that body. I was awkward, you know. But Mark, I've seen the photos, you were winning. You were incredibly handsome and still are, but that must have got you a ton of attention on that scene as well. I'm not going to lie. I mean, yeah, it did. I mean, you know, I was young. I was pretty. I was because the thing is, as well, more than anything. I was confident. And you can be all of those things. And there were loads of us that are really handsome and really, you know, and whoever we are. And if you're not hats or whatever we are, there's some of us that confidence, and it wasn't about me walking into a club and going, I'm the best looking personnel. And I used to think I was too skinny. I got HIV at a time which was really stigmatized. So walking into those spaces as much as I looked the way that I did. I had this internal struggle going on where people would find me incredibly unattractive. So my stance was informed by my confidence and it goes back to my parents teaching that you are valuable. So I walked into that. And because I also recognize Chris that we operate in this game world. And it is predatory, and it is toxic. I knew that the best way for me to cope with that was to stand up to be strong and know you was going to mess with. So it was that combination of things which enabled me to step into those spaces and hold my own because I had to. Yes. Yeah. And you mentioned there HIV, just tell me about the because you only found out two years after you'd come out, right? A year ago, a year ago. And not that it matters either way, but I have noticed that you've said it's not like you were sleeping around. And it doesn't matter either way. But it was a real surprise, I suppose, is what I'm trying to get at. And what was that like, that moment when you found out? I mean, it was a real surprise. I mean, because one I didn't understand that I'd been at risk. I didn't see how HIV is or the virus is something which is in my work. But the moment was devastating and shocking. Surprise, place it down a little, you know? It pulls the rug right from underneath my 17 year old fee. And I've asked him to describe it as a curtain coming down on my life and my world. For many, many years. That's the end of part one. I can highly recommend part two. It's full of surprises and delights. It's available on the feed now. What are you waiting for?

"Host convention centers and hotels. Where does your energy come from? How are you handling food waste? How are you handling water? I mean, there's a lot in there that can reduce your footprint surrounding not just not just the flight. The airplane. And searching for a flight on Google, they highlight the lowest emitting flights. Do you know about that? What's underneath that? Because that was new to me when preparing for this episode. Yeah, those calculations, I mean, there's a lot of when you get really into the weeds of the emissions associated with different flights and the mechanics. So people will argue over what math is being used underneath. So anyway, yes, Google has that. You can look at that. It's great to know, I think it's terrific to know what your emissions are and take those into consideration. You can then choose to fly a different route. You might choose to take a train, especially summertime, is a lot of people are going to Europe. I've recently got switched on to this thing called seat 61. If you've, if you go there, it's a he's a hobbyist. It's the man in seat 61, and it's all about trains. And the best train connections and how to link trains throughout Europe and it's a highly recommended website run by a hobbyist guy who loves trains. When I buy a ticket online, there's sometimes an option to pay an extra 50, $20 or so depending on the distance. Do you trust those offsets that airlines are selling Offsets have been much maligned, I think, and there have been some bad actors in the realm of carbon offsets. I, however, do think that most of what you see on airline websites. For example, in preparation for this, I was looking at what some of Alaska airlines offsets are. If you dig in there, they're supporting a forest in South Carolina, an 18,000 acre bird and wildlife sanctuary. I'm okay giving $20 to that. They're supporting a forest in Alaska, part of prince Wales island in the Alaska Panhandle. These projects, most of which you're going to see on an airline are going to be Vera gold standard verified projects. And I think putting money to support those worthy projects is worth it. The thing to remember in there though, the complication with offsets is that it leaves you with the feeling that you've solved the problem. Oh, I balanced my, I balanced it out. I'm even. We're good. The reality is we're not good. We're way over what we need. So you've emitted that CO2. It's going to stay in the atmosphere until we remove it. We have trillions of tons of stored CO2. If everything stopped today, if we all stopped completely, it would take 900 years for natural systems to cycle through all the CO2 that's stored in our atmosphere today. So the challenge with offsets is that it leaves you feeling like you've solved something. When what you've done is something helpful and we still have this whole other category of work to do, which is dramatic reductions and carbon removal. So that's why you're in carbon direct removal we've done episodes on nature does that. Technology is doing that. It's expensive. It's early days. It's getting a lot more attention. So are you trying to what create a revenue stream for carbon removal to address that legacy carbon that's up there? That's it. That's exactly it. We are trying to rally travel to help generate demand for carbon removal innovations. Tomorrow's air is partnered with climate works right now, which is a direct air capture carbon removal provider. We're adding other hybrid tech and tech solutions into our portfolio. Back to offsets, when we want to be carbon neutral when we're balancing our emissions, that sends us down a path of looking for the lowest cost offset. And that has caused us over many years to ignore investments in these removal technologies, which we know we need, and the way to bring those costs down is to deploy them. There's this very well documented learning rate with technologies. And as you deploy them further, they become more efficient and less expensive. And so today, tomorrow's air is doing this by trying to bring travelers and travel companies to the cause, we're not the only ones out there, right? Like Shopify and meta these come alphabet, these companies are saying, we're going to spend on carbon removal technologies at any cost, things that are high cost, low volume today, but have the potential to be low cost high volume in the future. And we don't know that these are all the perfect solution. Nobody's proposing that a direct air capture is the only solution. It's one of many. Of course, that's why I would still, as an individual, contribute to carbon offsets, contribute to valuable nature solutions. We know we have to have that. Plus, we love nature. Where are we going to go hike and play and ski and, you know, these are sacred spaces. There's so many reasons to support that kind of thing. And if we can help stimulate demand for some of the technologies, we will have them at scale when we really, really need them in the next 20 years. I guess I get the reason or the logic of large corporations with a lot of money. Buying down the cost of direct air capture that's about 200 times more than other offset programs. I just wonder about retail travelers if that's the best use of their funds or that 15 or $20 per flight might be better spent on the offsets of today. I buy them sometimes I'll double buy them because I'm not sure that they're a 100% effective. So I'll spend $30 instead of 15 thinking like, oh, I'm a little bit of insurance for any kind of questions about the effectiveness of or the additionality of those offsets. So is this the best way to direct retail consumer dollars? Right. Well, I think thinking about it in terms of the best, when we put ourselves in a mindset of, what is the best use of this $1? The best use of that $1 is across the spectrum of solutions. And so I firmly believe that individual travelers should engage with carbon removal tech. That signals it's not just the financial contribution that we can make en masse that can be meaningful, but it also and we are engaging with the subject and it signals to policymakers and investors that there's a public that cares and is looking at this. So it's not just about the money. It's about dollars attention follows dollars, right? I am firmly of the mindset that we are all in this together. We are all co-conspirators in our climate crisis. We all got us there. And now we all have to kind of dive in and help get us out. But what I have learned is that people like to take action, people like to engage, I feel much better feeling like I'm contributing than sitting here ringing my hands and hoping that the tech Bros and we have a president right now who's in favor of climate, but who knows who's going to be our president in the next few years. Waiting around for governments

"Will be available in all good audiobook shops and some rubbish ones as well soon. Yeah, nobody's buying it. I'll be honest. I don't speak to people. My dogs don't care how I say this horse. So we're going with Sharia. That's where we're going for. First and second in the market. So baybridge is certainly the head of the market. It's one of the last 5, I'm sure you've all heard it, continues here. Easier, typical Michael stout improving four year old. Interestingly, the last time Michael state four year olds are on and that's where all beaten is two reasons winners were 5 year olds. That's not going to stop people. It's maybe more interesting. It's not really a negative admittedly. But regardless of when it starts to change, for me, the hard fox are, we are being asked to take a very short price by a horse we've yet to see race above great sea level. It's not raised above great sea level. Indeed, as one last time I upgraded to your Gerard, four 74 feet level. E one well a day. I'm not going to deny that. But here's another stop for you. 22 of the last 24 winners of this had previously run and a group one contest. The already had the experience to run against the best, probably around the end of 2012 states, babies doesn't have experience in the bank. This is first track a great first crack at entering above gate three. And its defense 2021 north lines up again this year. He was also yet trying to include one before landing his prince Wales. But definitely zeros, he gigabytes were north of 5 to one as a case opened. I'm pretty sure he was wrong. But I think law and author is available quite a lot bigger. He was because racing TV's Tom ball actually put him up on the show because he had the option to go for a handicap or go for this. And I remember going, yeah, right. Yeah. And just scarfing at him and then having to what happened and go damn song that was a great call, but you're a 100% right. He was a much bigger rose. 16, 20s. He was a big prize. Yeah, you know, so in the different room was you were getting juiced in a place in the place at some point to see if he was a group one runner and win. So that's a big sticking point for him. There is no juice in his face. At all. We don't know if he's up to this level. We've never seen it. Again, he could prove right up to group one level. Absolutely. He queued win this constantly easily to destroy them. But prices are everything. And I'm not. I can't take place for about to find out if he's a great one. No thanks. I will pass on that. I can sit and watch him destroy this fuel that 5 to four. But he's not at the top level and what as I said, 22 or 24 had all run. At least run in a group one. The positive experience of that, you might get away with it. It's a small field. I will hopefully halfway sit and watch when it fights before. So by default, puts me on our Japanese friend. Sorry, that might be a bit of a conversation. Do you think? And it's not helping..

That is one of the designs and i really hate to talk about it much but a lot of you guys have watched the youtube videos on my mark dropping and we have to use those. We don't get a choice of using body grip traps. We gotta use those so it is. It's something that. I get tons and tons of feedback from a lot of people must just watch videos. And don't realize that we're required to use those links exclusion devices and think. Wow the sky catches a lot of martin. Look at all these martin sketching these boxes. And and how do i make those boxes. What are your designs. People have asked me for the pattern. They've asked me what i make him out of Where i get the staff would would. I suggest and all the stuff in how i wanna make some boxes like yours. That's a great idea. And it just kills me because they know you don't wanna make boxes like mine now if you want to catch for so jason house of martin. How long do you taint report using it.

"I'm Robin Young. It's here. And now, today is the day we pause to honor the workforce and in the next few minutes to honor the role of cruise ships in the working lives of women. I know when you think of women on cruise ships in the early 19 hundreds, you probably picture wealthy heiresses with hat boxes. And there were plenty Gloria Vanderbilt and her twin sister, Thelma Furness, among them. Thelma was the longtime mistress of the Prince of Wales. Until she introduced him to her friend Wallis Simpson. He promptly sailed off with her abdicating the throne. But in her new book, Maiden Voyages, British author Sean Evans includes the women below decks, immigrants coming to find work in America or fleeing Nazi Germany or joining husbands after World War. Two cruise ships were repurpose to bring war brides pregnant and with infants, Children. To the U. S. And it was a leap in the dark as indeed, traveling transatlantic always was in those days. If you left your home country, he might not see those people that you loved ever again. And one of these women described herself famously as Heart, sick, love, sick and seasick. There was great danger. The Titanic struck an iceberg. The Lusitania was torpedoed in 1915. The Britannic hit a mine in 1916. We learn about Violet Jessup, who survived all three sinkings witnessing lifeboats being lowered from the Britannic right into rising propellers. Just terrible. Joseph was a stewardess serving first class passengers, part of a new female workforce unparalleled on land. We spoke about them with Sean Evans for a virtual event put on by the American Ancestors Speaker series from the New England Historic Genealogical Society. Hundreds attended to hear about women like the unfortunately named Edith Sour butts. She was something called the conductress. The women who are conductress is they're employed specifically to look after unaccompanied women and Children, especially in third class. There was a great concern immediately after World War one about what was known as the white slave trade women in particular, who were put on these ships from Europe. They didn't speak any other languages. They were traveling alone, and they will pray to being picked off by unsavory characters. So these conductors were employed specifically to look after the moral as well as the physical welfare. And it is Sal. But a a terrific character who's unpublished memoir is in the Imperial War Museum in London. I turned it up. She started off as a type of she hated typing, so she went to work on the ships. You describe one of the immigrants that was there in third class. Her name was married. She was the youngest of 10 and the family in Scotland, and she traveled to New York met a guy named Fred Trump. I know I became the mother of Donald Trump. Mary was one of the immigrants she was. Marianne McLeod was an economic migrant managed to scrape together enough money in 1932 set out for New York. She put herself down as a domestic served as most women did, Because if you didn't put down domestic servant they might not let you in. Yeah. You give us so many reminders. There were many tragedies at sea. There were. It was a very dangerous place to work. Fine it Jess at the unsinkable stewardess. She was one of the ones in the lifeboat or who left the Britannic. The back end of the ship was going upwards and so the propellers with journey and she watched in horror as successive little boats were drawn into the wake and just chopped up. And she died out of the boat just in time went underneath. The boat had a head injury but was pulled to safety. So some of these women I write about actually took matters into their own hands. They were female staff on board ships. They were stewardesses or cooks or cashiers, whatever, and they did their lifeboat skills, so they knew how to manage a lifeboat. How to make the main road how to launch it with the DAB. It's going down in the worst of it. And so a lot of these women were really quite punchy, um, feisty women in the twenties and thirties, I thought, Well, I'm not gonna be some poor little sap. I'm going to learn how to steer and roller lifeboats. So I've got some control over my own destiny. How did you do your incredible research? Here's some questions coming in. My ancestors immigrated from Germany and Sweden. 18 86. I can't find entry records or ship logs, Somebody else writes. Are there any archives for the American line? My grandfather, Great aunt and her husband were employed in the early 20th century as first mate, Hostess and captain. Mostly on SS ST Louis. I want to find out more about them. Someone else right? My mom sailed tune from Europe in the fifties. Where can one begin trying to research info about specific voyages? Okay, Well, this is where Google is your friend. I went to the Fantastic Cunard archives, which are in the University of Liverpool. But I also use the Imperial War Museum archives. British Library, that sort of thing Now fantastic archives exist in the states. I know there is the museum of about ocean liners in New York. You can just start by Googling if you got the name of ship If you know the name of your ancestors, there are records as to who entered which country When And on What ship? It does Take a bit of legwork, but it can be done. Start with your own local History Society of Genealogy society. But look also at records of entry points into America on the Ellis Island is one of them. Well, I was also thinking that again, the unfortunately named Edith Sour butts, who shepherded all these women in steerage. She took copious notes and as I was reading as you quote, and I'm I'm thinking that's going to be someone's grandmother. It's such a thrill when you see someone's name, you know. I mean, if you if you go to the archives of various shipping companies, so, for example, Cunard they've got passenger lists. You can look them up online. And they only tend to keep the passenger names from the 1st and 2nd class. Which is interesting. Because so class we usually only going one way, but it isn't impossible to find records of people who traveled in third class and again. Ellis Island immigration records in New York where you want to be looking. You can start by looking at, um newspapers because I also go to newspapers a lot. We had a very interesting question, Robin. One person I noticed, as did I look at the onboard newspapers produced on board the ship? Yes, I did. Well, fascinating. Well, I found one in the British library, but I mean library will have them. They were newspapers, which produced every day on board. Each ship 1914, The onboard newspaper for the Aquitania talks about where Queen Mary is planning to spend her summer holidays with her German relatives. And how the Prince of Wales is thinking of married one of the czars daughters. And of course, all this suddenly comes to hope is a little news in brief in the same newspaper, which says that the body of France Ferdinand Was the heir to the Austrian throne. His body has been taken back to Trieste for burial following his assassination, and that's the first inkling you get a World war one and, of course, the plans of the czar's family. The plans with Prince Wales Queen Mary's plan to summer 1914 shot down in flames. Well, And as we said the plans of Gloria Vanderbilt sister yes went awry when she introduced that same Prince of Wales to her friend, Wallis Simpson. By the way, we're hearing from someone from American ancestors that people who are listening, want to research..

After the season the zev ad is a little. It's a little silly. it seems. I mean i that i don't get i i think it's it's an illustration of how tracks could seeking any opportunity to to post in and promote a big event and it does Yeah it was. It was silly but but at the time and i i suppose people covering the sport You know the controversy sounds. Newspapers and showdowns brings people to the race track from from the perspective of a hundred years. Later you're not come back saying well. This this is. This is silly. How could anybody Take the sears about but they did You know and it's funny in in memoriam ends up matching up with zev but the clamor actually was for the horse that might have had there been an issue in the international match. If there had been any issue with zev my own was was going to would've substituted and there were people that wanted to see a match race between zevon my own on. That's that was basically. Okay we'll we'll we'll We'll we'll settle this. That was the the the race at latonya and my Was well beaten. So they said okay When how he's he's clearly not the Ah the the right. That was the right horse to to to face the miami then my own But but now with settle Now really settle the The championship but my own was was part of the Part of the story in the The international race because he was he was selected much of the frustration of his own admiral.

I might have a problem with A he has a rash and this got picked up on all the news. The wires and And it's cynics said this was just to create more drama and more drama And so he he sent his horse up and they said okay. Well never mind that. They didn't grace and said that that he wasn't he wasn't notified that the his source would actually be running and so he was on the on the train and guts the got to the track with with his guests to include president wilson's widow right hand and they were disappointed so it was a it was a circus but that was that was kind of part of the point.

"prince wales" Discussed on Racing Post
"Good in the race last year it was a ragged year by tashin that you never got bates you stinkers you have three runs as in the mall obey not hugely impressive in the nunthorpe stakes on his final outing. Yes he comes here having had a a winter set but required a small piece of surgery. But he's record first time out is incredibly good in a. I am out this whole just win. So you're really asking yourself. the question. does that setback. He had over the winter coach to think that he won't pajic's swim because if he does produce his best form even line from there are some improving. Who didn't they're against him. like wind. power and liberty beach and king's lynn. Ospital said dropped back in trip could be interesting. I wouldn't want to be starting against tash on. It'd be does win with prices of around two. To one of the moment you be thinking. He was a heck of a price. So obviously i'll be with no against batch in this in this kingston. Okay marcus. Anything seduced you. That's come out of the woodwork. Because there's some new horses on the sea now isn't that yeah i actually. We've taken a different stance by tasha. I think when you're back a seven year old. He's got something to prove. Anyway not something to prove in extent that he is still the best sprinter on. We got to prove that he still retains the same ability. Then you throw in the hiccup these had to me. He's one of the more vulnerable favorites. This week in one. That i'd be willing to take on now the anglo to take on more tricky but i think there are options there even from an each way point of view arecibo could go at a very big price. He's around thirty three's but they're paying for place in this race. He comes here in reading far notice and his farm isn't the same level as a get that by only. We're going to see the very best potassium and there could be able to barnaul. Period k moro in here is whether there's lots of pace types. Naturally enough over to started started trip in a winter power has to be one of the leading contenders but stay This it's a real. It's a tough tough tests for her. Even if she has been very impressive she put up a huge performance last time. Just sometimes been harsh. Do put up big performances like that. You'd like see them. You know reproduce that same level again next. It doesn't always happen. Ams i i just how at a price jamie spencer sneaking into culmination robert koehler loves this five or six years ago. A goal dream big price. Justin could sneak away and a and could play stay at home but if it was back in early in batak i definitely on the landslide tom to look at all third group. One of the tuesday at four twenty. We have the james's palestine and this group wanna vermont are the bent We have a really tough. Also the head of the market in poetic flair won the newmarket guineas went to france. Finish six in the french equivalent was only just hit by state will make mcsweeney in the arctic guinea. This is not the big task for him to answer this stage of his career again. We have fresh opposition Take your shoes market who fled roughly seven to challenge most At eleven to two fossil ground has been support for him. He's the same price highland avenue unlucky. Bega both at sevens tended did something of a forgotten holes at eight along with sun domain. And wembley is bega as all the rest so this could be a really fascinating contest. Because i'm not sure is poetic. Been running all the big races whether there's really an established three three road among this bunch. Anyway what do you think is ringing every weekend. Look to go for a pint. Titas is mad for whenever the head of a group one race around europe. He's there he wants to be there. And jim bolger's comments in terms of toughness and wanting needing work at at his very best. It's interesting but just naturally. I wouldn't hold it as a total stick to be. It's naturally. I would probably prefer one. That's coming in with a bit more of an orthodox preparation more so than that for this arteries and i think nokia kobe. The answer. And you know documented. This is going to be heading to soden austrailia. Sure when exactly you'll be heading down there. I'd imagine it's going to be sooner rather than later and you get the sense. This is absolutely deed. If our i thought his role in the one thousand guineas at newmarket it was a point where you weren't sure if he was going to get my going into that race thinking willie stay. Imagine if they had to do again not that i would. Land anywhere franson did. But if you had his way again he actually might have made more use of them because he definitely state and he was calling back then the beaten half a length and then he goes to the car and the ground just could not be more against them. This is a good move horse. Who just wants real quick ground. And jane spoke to amass week john mccarthy and he said he he taught at halfway was gonna pull up and somehow he just keeps finding. I thought it was a cracker on the circumstances behind point fair. I think the better ground is gonna bring them right back together again on. The italian poetic fair has hired or schedule. I just think the price is. There's seven or eight to one or something along those lines not gonna run for this harks. He's gonna run a huge race Bite harshest have something dancer and obvious you know getting back in this art ground. Might well be ahead to him. You know considering some far nastier albeit he has formed with unease. But i'm you're a mustard f- fan. You are potential rather than what's in the form book. But for me. Lucky vega in top to or last season. You know has proven trained on with a good run. The guineas background he likes. I don't as much negatives with him. Think a big one. Big vote for lucky vega that from i think battleground you mentioned he definitely does have something to prove disappointing at newmarket clearly. Didn't handle the track veteran when the chechen at this meeting last year. I won't be surprised if he was bounced back The volatile string got first time tongue tie applied lead. John gosden or should i say jones eighty golson. Jim crowley datino with alcohol. Marks mentioned on this horse is gonna similar to without parole the twenty eighteen win in not he when the heavens stakes sundown the same combination also tried to only narrowly missed out with king of comedy in twenty nine teen. What do you think this. Horse's chances are you're i'm just not sure about mahdi warns against. He's nine mad dark. I saw john goes denver interview in guineas. Wake and i said about that point. Have you got any three euros. Looking within the he think could end this as an ass as star hosts and they were both adamant that they didn't I mean jonah said this is the worst classic croppies ever. He's ever a hat. So i i say nothing four or five weeks ago. They were thinking of this season as a a real star and that the mate doesn't kind of wins palestine. So i'd be starting against in going along with a marks about lucky vega racing around. Ben will help him. I think this the way this pans out. It will be better for him than The guineas at newmarket under the The l. but it's different sorts of test to ask so. I think look you buy. You could be one. Big prices to maximal. Dropped back down to a mile. Think will bring about improvement within him. The one that might be pushed me off that whole that he was meant from the diamond stakes. Darby day Until next until the rain came And i just wondered if that means that they were really thinking of him as a win at this point Interesting how it goes but look you buy you will be my tip fantastic onto day to wednesday on straits torri the four twenty another great on the prince wales's stakes and we're going to see las champion. Filly love reappear here. She comes up against last year's when lord north ameri Really love is the favourite stablemates or doria. The breeders cup filly.

With rick steves to look at some of her favorite places to find a bit of europe. In america samantha. Thanks for joining us. Pleasure to be here rank. Boy know all i do is go to europe again and again and again but i really. There's a lot of europe hiding out here in the united states during covid lockdown times so we can't travel overseas like we'd like to but we can find little knockoffs here in the united states from all around the globe knockoffs because some of them are terrific kind of constructions and others are honest to goodness immigrant communities. That are still the way they were hundred and fifty years ago when they were there were settled just in my state washington. We've got leavenworth which is a famous little german. It's kind of a touristy. Gimmick but poulsbo is originally a norwegian town and its norwegian to this day and we have linden up by the canadian border which is a very dutch was settled by holland immigrants. What are your favorite slices of europe in america. Well one of my favorites is a city that i had gone to my entire life. My family Was brought up right outside of it and then after doing two years of europe came back to and it just hit me like a ton of bricks that this was a european city and that is philadelphia pennsylvania. It is by far the most for me. The most year of paean city in the united states and so then i started like do a deep dive like why is it so it was just a feeling i had like. Wow i just feel like. I'm in europe. And there were so many connections One of the main architects was an emigrant from leon france. He designed the ben. Franklin benjamin franklin parkway which is now. We're all the museums are lined. And he designed that off of the sean z z. and along this beautiful roadway parkway where they're abuse. There's the rodin museum. there's the philadelphia museum of art. Which has the largest collection of renoir in the world. Incredible and others rittenhouse square. They're all these not just pockets. Because i think you know there's places we'll talk about today the have pockets but this is a city that is just so of france and the best connection that i love about philadelphia is that it is also it has the most mural arts i think in the world and its sister city is leon so if you ever go to leeann france and the kuala rouge is where you see those phenomenal murals and that art that is available to all end. It's all over the city. That's what the to share so the city a definite of brotherly love is a great. If you want that. European and more specifically french you know kick you've identified actual european design elements. That are just. I mean why couldn't a great european city designer Come in and help plan an american city and give it what works in europe i think. Washington dc has a lot of that shore. Pierre l'enfant right. Wasn't he the architect of that but yeah so there's all these and i don't think In france they have the cheese steak like philly does or the st go from all. She's got its own food but you know it's definitely one of these places that give you an exact feel through architecture through art and also public works that i think europe is really well known for that. Also this american city has and there's also the dimension that will be brought to a city by a big immigrant community. I'm fascinated when i travel around the country. I can tell what the immigrant history of town is bhai. How the people. I talked to my different speaking. Gigs advocate for me making a tv show. In when i go. When i go to cleveland i always get people from lithuania and estonia for some reason saying. Why don't you ever go to the baltics. i hope we don't lose that. My grandpa used to hang out in ballard in seattle. He came over on the boat from norway. He was a a treasure for him to go to the danish cafe and hang out there and and have his danish and speak a scandinavian with his scandinavian. Friends you know the old norwegian and if you're an old timer you joke about ballard as the you know the norwegian jokes or something. But today's if you went to ballard. He wouldn't really recognize that the jokes don't work anymore. Because in the in one generation things have changed quite a bit darn. I love a good norwegian joke. Okay be careful where you tread here in philadelphia from a european point of view. What's another town that. Be mindful of when we get a chance to visit that we can get a slice of europe. I think you know a lot of people do go trips. That's really Popular for americans. We love the road trip. And one of the best. The california pacific coast highway. And there's a town in the santa barbara county called soul vang. Have you ever heard of solving solving in norway. okay so this is actually a danish. It was founded by danish immigrants. Like you know of course. Nineteen ten not too long ago. But you know And they wanted their own place so all. The buildings are of danish architecture even have windmills. They have fast roof. It goes a little towards that kitschy side that you were talking about. But this is still a danish town and you can get The danish pancakes everywhere you know. There's forty shops twenty themselves. What does it apple skydiver that you know but her you know the little round puffy. Yeah but then you know if if you're going through during their wonderful festivals. This is truly a danish town so and it's just so charming because you're going through one beachside city after the next nets that california laidback field. And then boom. You're in europe samantha.

We'll go over that for the fans and them. So how'd you get Who inspired you like. It was first inspiration nominated family and artist sort of blew you away while my father had thrown me into guitar lessons when i was younger and i had no idea on to be honest. I had no idea what guitar was. It wasn't even like in. Idaho yeah i didn't. I didn't even have any interest in it. In my friend was taking lessons so We paired he paired me with him. So we were just Taken it from this guitar. i enjoyed it but i still didn't really have that interest in it Because i was. I will i come from an athletic family. So baseball was like my sport and I thought i was going to be in the mlb by now but I found this love for music later on Probably around like middle school and of middle school into high school and Yeah that's how i got into. It was guitar lessons. I've been playing guitar for quite a while now. So when you got the guitar you didn't really know what to do with a at wall. I've found it pretty easy from what i was learning. I was learning blues and all that I found it pretty easy and like it was cool. I don't. I don't think. I just quite got the significance of making music just yet you know i think i was. It came a little bit too. Quick to I don't want want that to come off the wrong way I just picked it up real quick. And i don't think I found. i don't think i found it when i needed it. If that makes sense Yeah and I mean in probably in middle school. I think i got this big ditch with the beatles music And i think it just took off after that. I learned like every single one of their songs and then i saw the beauty of it. Well the beatles weren't the only influence we'll talk about that later so okay you talk time off a to your bio says refined your sound since your debut. Ep if i being on us through it was released Two thousand eighteen. Can you tell me about that. Like why did you took time off. Jimi lessons No i i was having Why yeah how do i want to word this. I recorded those songs. I had just kind of like i. I haven't released any music. I think maybe i Posted covers on youtube or instagram. But i was still like really shy about letting everybody know that. I'm a musician and singing and all that And i came out that ep just to let everybody know that i'm this. I'm serious about this. And i'm not just going to keep posting covers and stuff. Is anybody can do that. You know and i found like this real love for impassioned for writing music and creating it and i actually had my The guy who was teaching me guitar early on this is like what he does. He's a producer mixer. He does a plethora of things but I had him help me on that. Ep and he i think he did a fantastic job from what i was looking for. And then Probably a little bit after outs like thinking i could probably produce something Myself like i could probably get something that i'd like to listen to you know like i didn't it came out. I think like i said i think he did. A great job but I think the music that i was creating wasn't where i wanted to go Just sat down with my notebook and really Thought about what. I wanted to do and Yeah i came out. I just wrote and wrote and row and now i'm finally coming out with all those songs Or i came out with one of at least than other opportunities Came up and it was more of like a do one or the other and so I had to take a break writing and recording and take up these other adventures if you will But now now that can just sit down and record them and release them That's focusing on. That's awesome and how is the voice experience yeah so it was an incredible experience As one could imagine It's my mom's favorite show. So that's why i hopped on it. I initially said no has. I thought it wasn't really. You know the direction i wanted to take in my career.
"prince wales" Discussed on Life in 16 oz.
"So i also got a chance to talk to david love. Who was the past president of the glacier grotto. he's now the treasurer in he had tons of historical information about the about the the caving club Last lots lots of talk about well exactly fifty years ago. There were seven. Nss national celia logic sidey members in alaska dead started publishing a publication called the alaskan caver. This represented trips that. These people made under the auspices of alaska areas conservation task force. Those people included chuck. Ps warren smith. Thomas and nancy. How and then james hedges william halliday jay rock well david klinger people who have caved in the north west and the western part of the us Some of those names will be familiar in nineteen seventy eight after More and more people started moving to the state and it was realized that We had a fairly karst and cave. Networking resource. Here in the state of alaska. They organize themselves as the glacier grotto. Karst which stands for Well david explains a little bit a little bit more about what cars is. So caving in alaska is quite very. They can be limestone caves. They can be ice caves under. Glaciers we have few caves also in lava tubes throughout the different parts of the state Caving gonna be quite buried of laid. Most of the effort in cave exploration has been occurring in southeast alaska In karst and what karst is societal. Bedrock usually calcium carbonates In which the the caves are formed through disillusioned by acidic waters moving through a basic rock and eroding into The cavities underground. Become these a fantastic caves. I have been caving once or twice up in the mother lode area. In the murphys california area there is The california caves mercer caverns and moaning mourning caverns. Caverns here's some misconceptions of caving. David brings up you know. The misconceptions about caving is that it's it's dangerous and It can be can be dangerous if you're unpreparedness if you're unskilled if you don't go with groups like the glacier grotto that know what they're doing know how to do it safely And with proper preparation gear. You offset the risk. It's like recently in norway. What is a There's there's no bad weather. There's bad clothing. And that's that's stuff that's important as well because there is a danger factor. It's not just romance and watching a movie. Well actually watching a movie. You wouldn't want to go into a cave at all. No they're very good backlots for horror flicks but yeah. There's there's so. Many risks risks involved yet the rewards are going to be something special almost like a very small percentage of people actually see this stuff and it's interesting because he brings up some of the things that you would normally see in caves. We have found. Cave invertebrates Various kinds there are ample pods. That helped run the insect biologist. Collect that are unique to the cave systems in on prince. Wales can't carlson. There are blin area. There are different invertebrates probably that we haven't even found yeah I was in a cable early. On when i started caving in the early nineties called blue marble cave they had in you drop down into the cave and you hit a stream passage kind of tea into a stream passage. There's a stream running along the bottom of the cave passage and then it goes out eventually. Goes you know a subterranean and you can't follow it anymore. But in that isolated section there were Cat supply hatching when we were there. Mapping and you find you know you find sub surface organisms rainbow trout cutthroat trout in the streams and some of the streams Connect back to the surface and runs of salmon. Run through there and after speaking to anna you know just looking up at mammoth cave in Where was yeah. I mean it was talking about cave. Shrimp and Gypsum minerals or flowers and glistening crystalline. 'cause there's got to be a version of what you see when you scuba dive there's got to be iridescent things and stuff that glows and stuff that Just i don't know it's got to be some crazy stuff that That lives down there. So david talks about the purpose or what glacier grotto stands for their their mission statement wanted a the purposes of the glacier grotto promote interest Vance study and understanding and the science of speleologist to protect and preserve the caves and their natural contents and promote fellowship -mongst cavers and the resources found in in eggs in southeast and caves actually everywhere in the world vary from biological to hydrological to geological Archaeology ancient human remains in autoclaves including those here south east Ours paling to logical remains dating back to before forty thousand years ago. You can see changes in the environment Through time as the climate has changed. So they're they're really fascinating from a variety of different standpoints. Here are some final thoughts from david about going out. And checking out the the the cave. Networks out there and by the way you can check out your local grotto by going.
