Prince Philip, husband of Britain's Queen Elizabeth, dies at 99

"Years old, and he was married to Queen Elizabeth for 73 years. Robert what's been the reaction in the UK? Well, it's fair to say that, you know, it's obviously huge news both in Britain on across the Commonwealth, not shocking because, of course, Prince Philip did. You could have been brothers 99, perhaps not even tragic, because he'd had such an active a life. But certainly this is in Britain today. A somber national occasion. He died at the age of 99 just a few months short of his 100th birthday at Windsor Castle. Come on. Now, there is this debate about the funeral, which will be problematic because of course, as we've just been discussing with covert restrictions, Crowds cannot gather on. According to the Duke's wishes. It won't be a state funeral, but it will be a funeral at Windsor Castle with it with a military procession. I think overwhelmingly the reaction in Britain as it plays out. Will be a deep empathy with the queen. Many people in Britain observing that she went out end her monarchy like Queen Victoria is that widowed queen on people very touched by how she paid that tribute to her husband to Prince Phillip, describing him as her strength and her stay. So I think overwhelming in Britain, it's a moment of reflection of remarkable marriage, a remarkable life. Other Duke but also deep empathy of for the Queen herself. She injures the difficult days ahead, and I think there's one other point I would make, which is people just fascinated with this extraordinary

Names erased: How Indigenous people are reclaiming what was lost

"You don't have to look very far to find Examples York region Ontario was named after your can the UK Regina is named after Queen Victoria Regina being the Latin for Queen and well British Columbia obviously. For Christina. Gray reclaiming those place names is vital and it's personal. The Simpson and Denny lawyer is one of two researchers behind reclaiming indigenous place names. The policy report was released in October of two thousand nineteen by the Yellow had institute at Ryerson University in Toronto. I've reached her at her home in Prince Rupert BBC. Welcome to unreserved thanks for having me. So you are a CO researcher with Daniel Ruck and you looked into naming practices and the erasure of indigenous place names. What did you find? We really wanted to do a cross section of the history of settler colonial renaming practices from indigenous place names to places that are an English or in French, or there's also note anglicised version as well and none look at what is the practice of reclaiming indigenous place names that is happening in various places are ranging from like the Northwest Territories, Quebec B. C. Saskatchewan Manitoba to give. People a different idea of what's going on across these places and territories, and so how do original place names get changed? You know from from the original indigenous words into you know the things that they become how does that happen? Basically what's happening as a result of mostly white people or settlers who were? Changing the names to suit their whims, our desires or values when places were being changed from indigenous place names, saedtler place names like we have to remember the population of Canada at that time was a lot lower than it is now yes. There were indigenous peoples on these lands and territories, but there is also a different perspective by settlers at that time as well, and so they I think they wanted the the places to reflect. What was going on in their life for different ideas that were important to them. I can think that Greek in Vancouver I was looking into the two sisters, which is now called the lions and a lot of people go heikal lions in in Vancouver, and they kind of overlook how sound and you can see them pretty much any point in Vancouver. But before they were called the lions, they recalled the two sisters and it relates to an oral history. Of The squamish nation and it's an oral history that also relates to northerners like myself because the oral history it's it's about making peace offerings between the northern and the southern people's. used to war with each other and so that has much significance to me as a simpson person who used to live in Vancouver the two sisters in Vancouver is definitely one that I've heard about Are there any other striking examples of renamed places that you found y'all like almost makes me want to cry actually there's a place that was called Lake Squat Kit. It's like near Kenmore, but the word squad specifically, Drago Tori term to refer to indigenous women and. Terrible. Stereotypes associated with it as well, and those are based off of how some settlers song about indigenous. and so you can just think about like it's a Grayson, deeply misogynistic but. People like had such a personal connection to the place name of squash it and like didn't want it to be renamed and. But like that I think has such a affect the way that you call places. And think about there are so many missing murdered indigenous woman in Canada and how you referred to that something that. So awfully in calling squad like those have affects real-life affects on people it's not just about placing. And is renaming more. Can it be more than just a symbolic gesture you know on how is renaming more than just a symbolic gesture i? Guess I think we always hope that naming practices or the revitalization of indigenous place names will go beyond just symbolic gestures who also have substantial effects as well and sue. Enrich policy really wanted to also look at like what are some of the mechanisms. In which indigenous people are. Using policy and Law to revitalize indigenous place names and so we looked up land use planning conservation co-management. Events and also modern day treaties and self government agreements in which indigenous peoples are using these different mechanisms available to on to re attribute and revitalize indigenous placing you know this work is being done by indigenous people. So think it's really important to attribute that recognition to them.

The Widows of Malabar Hill by Sujata Massey

"So, re-re yes. What do you want to start with this one? I think we should start with the author's background. and. Just like the inspiration behind Irvine. So. John Massey was born in England and she was raised in the US right now, she lives in Baltimore and her parents are from India and Germany. So she did a lot of traveling. She actually wrote another mystery series back in the nineties which was set in Tokyo while she was living in Japan and it's the Ray Chamara mystery series. But this book was more in the of own voices She did an incredible amount of research for the book I don't know if the people are goods forums read the acknowledgments at the very back but I tend to read all of the acknowledgments because I. I'm usually really curious as to who the author thank and it gives me like a sense of. Their journey when it came to writing the book and she. Massey doesn't have a background in law. She reached out to people reached out to legal historians at universities in. The US who specialize in South Asian law and also in Bombay she contacted magazine editors who are familiar with Parsi customs she went she actually went to Mumbai and she visited all of the historical institutions she reached out to like even railway experts. So she could figure out like how people were able to travel from one place to another and even with the food she I think she interviewed a bunch of like food writers as well. So like the food descriptions in this book are fantastic and our main character per wien is actually inspired by two. Women, attorneys. One of them was Cornelius One of them was Cornelius She was the first woman to read law at Oxford, and the first woman to take the British law exam in eighteen ninety to eighteen, ninety two that's a lot earlier than I would expect the first. First Indian woman to to study law, and the other women that appropriate is based on is Mathon Totta lung who also studied law in Oxford and whisk first woman admitted to the Bombay bar a back in one thousand, nine, hundred, twenty, three. So. Yeah like per Venus. This this book is set in the nineteen twenties. So yeah. It's actually it's really interesting that it's actually based on women who did practice law so Yeah. I mean it's I? Don't think reunite can claim to be experts in the cultures of India but this book real you can tell that the author did a lot of research especially to portray like Mumbai such Mambi during this time period, which was a pre partition it was it depicts a Mumbai that's very multicultural multifaith like a lot of different. People Customs Cultures Religions, and even value sets that kind of coexisting with each other which made for really interesting setting especially in the context of per wien enter father Jamshedi as lawyers who had to. Navigate these. Waters right because every single community has their own set of loss at they have to understand and know how to argue and just also takes place on the backdrop of this was when India was still in imperial colony, right is still part of the British empire and so you have the added. wrinkle of a colonizing power in the form of white people in the mix as well. Yeah Like you said, I'm I'm not an expert with a one thousand, nine, hundred twenty s India But in terms of like England nineteen twenties. So that was during George, the fifth Who was the grandson of Queen Victoria? It's so it's to rains after the Victorian era. So very the the the dad of the King's speech King Yes yes. So this was during time where there was a rise in socialism. And just. I. Think it was like at the height of the British empire and then it crumbled.

The trouble with embryos

"Welcome to science fiction. Years coming to you from the Home Studio Bunker, still. Can't seem to get the doves and waterbirds to be quite when I need them to be, but look in today's show. It's a wild story about biology ethics, politics and to millionaires on a personal mission that went horribly. Why would on the case is reported John Lee? Who joins me for this show? Hi Natasha Yeah. This starts in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, one with Mario and elsevier. They would to property developers from Los Angeles and they really wanted to have a child together, but they were an older couple. Yeah, that's right also was forty and Mario was fifty seven, and they couldn't do it on their own. So in one thousand, nine, hundred one. They decided to come all the way to Australia to try this brand new thing in fertilize. Fertilize Ation Ivf I mean today creating a baby using his totally commonplace, and it's a big industry over familiar. But this was the early eighties when the technology and the science was so new that this just was we'd this idea that you could create a human embryo outside of a woman's womb, and suspend its development in time to it was blowing people's minds. The moment of conception. An event that has taken place in its natural environment, the womb since the doing of human existence. Now it comes in gloss. And with a host of problems, moral, ethical and legal. So Australia was leading the way in fact with the science of RV. If that when the real couple come here, the techniques still very much being Susta, this is experimental stuff. Yeah, and one of the people who knows just how difficult those early days were is Gab, Kovacs he's a professor of obstetric gynecology at Monash University, but back then he was the clinical. Director of the IVF program at the Queen Victoria Hospital in Melbourne. was very difficult to Queen Victoria hospitals over General Hospital and everyone sort that. Is Just a phase. He wasn't going to work. It wasn't a last and we wasting. Everybody's time. When we started doing collections. We have to me. Natural Song goes on spontaneous relation, so it's not unusual to have to collect exit to I. Am for am six I am. So we had a lot of opposition. All IV of treatment started out using the so-called natural cycle method, which meant doctors had to wait for the perfect moment in a woman's natural ovulation cycle to retrieve that one egg. She created every month. If they collected at the right time, it could go on to be fertilized to make an embryo. If they time too late, they'd miss the egg and have to wait another month too early and the egg wasn't mature. Mature enough to be fertilized outside the chances here of actually getting a baby out of IV, if treatment would have been extremely low when the Rayo says rock up in Australia yet, but a talented trio at the Queen. Victoria, hospital was changing all of that, and they were about to put Australia. In the history books so I wanted to do the IV. If in a totally different way to the way they were doing it because I wanted to utilize. Methods developed in animals, scientists Alan, trounson originally trained as a bit and he was to the hospital by IVF. Pioneer cal would car would he allowed me to work with John? Laden to develop a totally different system, which was using fertility drugs to stimulate than women, so we could get more eggs and hence more embryos. Well what happened is is that actually worked? It was the system that actually work. It was a huge leap forward. They found a way to create multiple viable embryos at a time and freeze them, and every extra embryo meant another chance of creating a baby for a couple who couldn't otherwise have one is, but every stage in artificial production is still precarious. So in those early days, a significant proportion of those embers just were lost in the phrasing. Prices will only about thirteen percent five treatments ended with a live baby back then today that figure stands at about thirty percent, but even so this scientific breakthrough was life changing for Wannabe Parents Alan Trounson. An iphone they could cope with disappointment. Absolutely, you know very well essentially because. They understood. This was a very early in in terms of the research, so the chances of getting outcomes would very low if anything happened when somebody got pregnant and is is it was astonishing and so when we go to Ronald pregnancies from the methods with using John in the whole world Sunday stood up and so what what the Heck did you do? Do that. Okay, so let's meet the American couple at the heart of the story Jane. They land in Australia headed. Elsa Riaz respond to treatment will Gab Kovacs was one of the doctors at the Queen Victoria Hospital remember I said they were millionaires. That's important to this story, but back then Gab Kovacs had no idea. Just Shiva's is trashed and she spoke. In Mississippi we didn't look very well off. You ever probably struggling to spend the money to Florida squad expensive to fly back in the ninety ninety eight foods relatively much more than what they are now and with quality deal to come over here and leave over here. We felt sorry for him and most secretary always. suggestively discounted faithful porpoises Riaz who've had no idea that they were quite wealthy. He Remembers Elsa being very dramatic and difficult to deal with, but she had good reason to be all. She was very strong that a terrible history. I'll guess you've gone through Easter beforehand and they've were pretty strengthening to fly over here. They had one child who they'd lost. He was murdered. I think or an accident. Remember the D. Tough, and that's why they're really chained to have another child and off. If they're only hype, that's why to throw you. Both Mario and L.. Serena's had had children with previous partners, but they'd been a tragedy. Else's ten year old daughter had only recently died should been playing with a gun and it went off killing her that he's absolutely horrific are so that means that there was so much emotion entangled with this whole process. That's right. There was, but the process started well. Three embryos were created for the couple using else's eggs and donor sperm, so they had three chances of success. And I don't think we did about eleven o'clock midnight on a Saturday evening and she was very dramatic. Everything was sound. What's the drama? So she would her ex collected to street is beforehand a fertilize, and they would have developed and. Would have chosen the best probably wanting to Australian bureaus back, which would then be tempted to be

Hook, Line, and Sink-Her, a History of Fishnets

"Mechanization of textile production as you know what really kind of signal the beginning of the end. For many of these handcrafted industries like lace knitting and simple sewing because these things increasingly transitioned to being made by machine and the latter two are the means by which the majority of people socks were saying sewing and knitting That's how most people socks and hosiery were made for centuries upon centuries and we just want to say that we've received numerous requests to do an episode on knitting. But I think you and I kind of intimidated by this topic. I know it's a huge. I mean it's just a giant giant topic. Yeah knitting and there's actually entire podcast just about knitting. Yeah it's very true and and just diving into this topic as you know just for this past week or two. It's very clear that this could be an entire. The history of knitting could be its entire podcast because its existing cultures around the world for hundreds if not over a thousand years ancient Egyptians appear to have been some of its earliest practitioners. I guess there's a there are extent I don't guess I know. They're extent knitted socks dating to the third or fourth century. Ad So well they also at the Vienna have really helpful instinct quote unquote history of knitting essay. I think we'll probably post a link of that somewhere. And they tell us in this essay that there is evidence of knitting goods being produced and circulated in Europe from the fourteenth century on so knitting was used in the production of men and women's hose at the time and we have to remember. We're not talking pantyhose. They were not fully fashioned. They did not have a crotch. These are two separate garments one for each leg and foot and as we can imagine and I'm sure many of our listeners who knit can relate. Haning hose was a labor and time intensive process. So you would think that people might have been a bit relieved when the English clergyman William Lee invented the first mechanical knitting machine or stocking frame as it was known the sixteenth century when he created it but alas they were not they are actually quite pissed well and like with many modern technical innovations. This is all had to do with the fact that many people's livelihoods were depending on the old way of doing things right so in this case the hand niggers the knitting industry exactly and so when lease machine that had stockings were presented to none other than Queen Elizabeth. The first herself she rejected them for this very reason. She reportedly told him quote. I have too much love for my poor people who obtain their bread by the employment of knitting to give my money to Ford invention that will tend to their ruin by depriving them of employment and thus making them bakers and from this moment on lease stocking frame and its subsequent evolutions. Were incredibly controversial. You just have to look at the protection of stocking frames act. Seventeen Eighty eight which rabbit hole people go. It's fine and the destruction of stocking frames act of eighteen twelve to realize that people wanted these machines. Gone that go away. They would not lease machine might represent one of the first examples of mechanization of textile production. But it would absolutely not be the very last you know. His invention was first major stage. In what would become the textile industries wide revolution that transformed the ways at textiles and dress reproduced. To this very day and these some of these other inventions include devices such as the cotton gin the card loom and ultimately the sewing machine so these machines like so many textile innovations of the industrial revolution. They would transform the industry but they would also displaced thousands of workers in the process and by the end of the Eighteenth Century. Lease stocking frame was being adapted to produce lace. But it would be John Heathcote. Bob Monette machine that is credited with perfecting it. Heath Coats machine produced plane net lace which we might refer to as tool today. April this is where stocking production and technology begins to go way over my head. I can guess because we have a ton of like textile trade industry publications in the collection at fit and they have like all the machines and diagrams and scientific information mean that this is like hardcore science. We're talking about. Yeah and there's a lot a lot of innovation happening in the knitted hose industry in the eighteenth late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries so it was a bit overwhelming and you know this because textile and specifically stocking production was incredibly integral to the British economy economies of the world over so there are these highly detailed reports about its development throughout the nineteenth century about the development of knitting technologies and netting technologies and there are a lot a lot of developments as April mentioned in the eighteen forties. Commissioner was appointed by Queen Victoria to report on the State of framework knitting industry and he produces a densely packed. Sixty five page report. Sixty pages complete no with not only the history of the knitting industry but in the country but also a quote list of the various kinds of machinery made use of in manufacturer of hosiery and lace with the names of Inventors From Fifteen Eighty Nine Aka. William Lee. We just spoke about two eighteen forty to eighteen forty three the present day so needless to say by the beginning of the nineteenth century the list which spans hundreds of years at this point was quite extensive and includes everything from lease stocking frame and Heathcote Bob an ATM machine to numerous others including casts quote machines for Lang. Hair and Jose remade wigs. I think I I think I need to know more about this and even eighteen. Oh three a fishing net machine but apparently it's failed being made by fishermen cheaper than by machine at this point so I guess the point would really trying to drive home as that lace and lace net where being machine made in the early nineteenth century and by eighteen forty five. There's a journal. Being produced by Pennsylvania's Franklin Institute and they reported on the modes quote of Work Fabricating Lace and Framework Knitted Manufacturers introduced from foreign states and this included machines for round fingered gloves from Madrid in Spain. Figured Work Shawls and quote unquote nodded hose without seems from. Leone and Barcelona and a quote cylinder particular machine for making fancy net hose and that came from a sound sturdy little bit. I think I'd take layers a needle. Okay okay but still just say but these these were not fishnet nets right. They're not for catching fish or fish. Net Hose No. They're not and I'm at but I am actually happy to finally share things to these evolutions and laze technology and eighteen eighty nine. We find the very first use of the term. The actual term fishnet in Harper's bazaar in relation to women's dress and they write the fashionable diesel returned from Paris bringing down with many new features gowns of India soaks Chinese crepe a fish nets and leases. But I did not find the use a fish net in relation to hose or stockings until over twenty years later in their nineteen twelve fall fashion number the trade publication dry goods reporter reported on a quote.

We are already seeing these associations with eroticism. Yes you know. And they're kind of scared of that association right because they assured their readers again that quote. The new fishnet hose that we illustrate in this article has been shown to newspaper representatives. And some of them have used it as a subject of humorous articles. Conveying the impression that it was to be worn next to the skin. You know so this erotic potential of this garment is literally illustrated in this article. There's kind of the irony of it because they have this woman modeling this novel. Hosiery and April. We see her ankles. No what are we GONNA do. Candle shock and awe article continues on quote. The hose may never become a big seller on the market but the effect produced by them. Is Novel any store? Having at least a single pair of them for exhibition purposes could attract unusual attention to their hosiery department. So that's hilarious. There were basically like saying Ou. Come look at these scandalous stockings. You don't have to buy them. We're not really selling them right right. And I mean. It remained a novelty throughout the teens. Basically until nineteen twenty and this is where we see a more widespread acknowledgement of what the dry goods reporter calls the quote Unquote fishnet effect. In

The Trouble With Embryos

"This sounds a lot like that battle of thoughts going on inside Fiona mind about her embryos if they were destroyed then what if my child needs something from a sibling medically in the future and I've just destroyed that option and then also what it might sense of identity on the flip side she might be completely and utterly with her identity and I'm just thinking well it's a single children out there exactly right exactly right it's hard to see how these complex questions could be easily on a single form Ivy clinics themselves also bear some responsibility for helping parents decide what to do after all they make money from it with IVF treatments and the storage of excess embryos Louise Johnson again in my experience clinics are very supportive of patients is when they having trouble deciding what to do with your embryos and you say thinking about donating their embryos clean counselors will spend considerable time with paypal helping them to make sure that that decision is the right one for them in fact the national health and Medical Research Council's ethical guidelines for IVF clinic state that they we must discuss with patients their options for using or discarding embryos but the level of counseling clinics a legally required to offer varies across Australia and some argue that this counseling is more focused on the start of the IVF process than the end look I think that's also the focus of paper taking treatment as well that's the focus is to try for baby but one of the medicine needs to be coveting canceling in Victoria and elsewhere he's what to do with embryos at the end of the day if treatment is successful or not successful so it is a matter that is coveting canceling right from the Gar so let's come to another option you have a small proportion of people decide to donate the embryos they won't use no one else who wants to have a child that might be a family member or it might be a total stranger they really want us to have a chance at having a baby maybe and and they would prefer their embryos to be used by others then allowing them to succumb on auto bar tree bench but that's not a common path people choose to take so in Victoria in two thousand seventeen to eighteen they were only seventy embryo donors compares with four hundred and twenty four sperm donors and three hundred dollars so the number of embryos donald is much smaller and why do you think that is I think it's a really hard decision they know that any children born or before to nick siblings if there are in children and that's hard decision to make let's come back then to the two women you've met in this program funeral and Desa neither of them want to donate their embryos to other families that just not comfortable with the idea of someone else raising what would be the potential children Fiona feels a great sense of responsibility for her embers the joined the spam dialup would never eight and would never have created those embryos I created them so giving them to somebody else to raise a family where I'm not I've got no sane or I'm not aware of what sort of parents apparent though built sort of family situation you know what if I go to a family or a situation that puts him in Ham then I would feel very responsible about that of course I'd Never Nari but it would always be there Jessica on the other hand says that she's been advised that the law in her State Victoria prevents her from donating her embryos to someone else because we've got Dana Sperm we count on donate to anybody unless the law has changed or I think it has correlative more than us for them and I said to her even if a Kudankulam to you because there's a diner involved in Victoria Dan can legally donate sperm to up to ten women that number varies around Australia. Gab Kovacs is a professor of obstetric gynecology at Monash unit acidy as we had last week he was also the clinical director at the Queen Victoria hospitals. IVF program back in the eighties then he helped create some of Australia's first frozen embryos for infertile couples the couple's Godal over Kabul the Women Guthrie stimulated saw monitoring surgery and the hassle and the expansion credit is embryos and then when they reach their five-year use-by date to then have them discarded to me a terrible waste he's opinion is donating your excess embryos to another person or couple wanting a child is a good option and always tried to encourage couples to consider donating and not can understand how couples who understand the pain of subjectivity who understand how difficult is to create these ambers war they don't donate their embryos to somebody else this Rodney having destroyed and when we ask people about this today are now we don't want somebody else bringing up children but I'm sure there's other ways with that could be involved the children and be updated and have some sort of a situation where they can visible if they want to but to give us the chance of law rather than being left on the inch to succumb okay so let's come to another option the final we're considering on science friction today and that is to donate excess embryos to scientific research what does that involve before here from an IV scientist here's Fiorina's first response to that idea instantly for I'm not having any conflict whatsoever I instantly just thought of horrible scenes from old movies of crazy scientific research that might happen Dan and again the fact that even though I don't see them as children I do see myself as being responsible for them desa maybe watch the same movies because she owes so has similar worries about embryo research limbs might grow that that to me I couldn't carp tonight at that we're doing that it just worries me that and I put electric shocks in that soulful of just thinking I'm just thinking I watch too much science fiction professor Alan Trounson helped pioneer the F. treatment in the eighties and he wants to demystify how scientists use embryos in research and locate the just short period of time the embryo is destroyed really by the processes of the research but they would be destroyed anyway if our terminated and that seems better than just disposing of them which is just to do that then to look at some data that you might mind from those embryos in the process of scientific study leader in stem cell research and he was involved in the public debate over whether we should extract stem cells from donated IVF embryos today there's less demand for embryos donations in scientific research because we now have other ways to develop embryonic stem cells from adult cells but they're still crucial for helping just to understand human disease and early development Professor Johnson says embryo studies can also be used to help improve the treatment of the modern be used to create a new technique luckily trip occasion where that's sides you know millions of embryos but you have to do the research in the beginning and you can't just sort of magic that's an area focused on the possibilities of replacing and repairing diseased cells organs and body parts I think it donating embryos for research bionic stem cells to work ahead of May an Ip so I- cells or induced pluripotent stem cells can be converted into different cells in the body you to perform different functions and that is the core element for so therapies for regenerative medicine now the lots

"Episode I'm joined by Jane Lee who has pretty Mario and Elsa Riaz they to property developers from Los Angeles and they really wanted to have a child together but there were a couple yeah that's right also was forty and it was fifty seven and they couldn't do it on their own so in one thousand nine hundred one they decided to come all the way to Australia to try this brand new thing called him vitro fertilization and I've e F I mean today creating a baby using ivf is totally commonplace and begin stree- over familiar but this was the early Eighties win the technology and the science was so new that this just was we this idea that you could create a human embryo outside of swim and suspend its development in time to it was blowing people's minds the moment of conception an event that has taken place in natural environment the womb since the dawn of human existence now it comes in gloss and with it a host of problems moral ethical in legal so Australia was leading the way in fact with the science of RV if that when the couple come here the techniques still very much being susta this is experimental stuff yeah and one of the people who knows just how difficult those early days were is Gab Kovacs he's a professor of obstetric gynecology at Monash University but back then he was the Clinical Director of the IVF program at the Queen Victoria Hospital in Melbourne was very difficult from Queen Victoria Hospital Sova General Hospital and everyone thought that obviously is just a phase wasn't going to work it wasn't an last and that we wasting everybody's time doc doing and collections after to me natural song goes on spontaneous ovulation so it's not unusual to have to collect exit two am four am six I am so we had a lot of opposition and all I v F treatment started out using the so-called natural cycle method which meant doctors had to wait for the perfect moment in a woman's natural ovulation cycle to retrieve that one egg she created every month if they collected it at the right time it could go on to be fertilized to make an embryo if they timed it too late they'd miss the egg and have to wait another month too early and the egg wasn't mature enough to be fertilized outside the chances here actually getting a baby out of IV of treatment would have been extremely low when the races rocked up in Australia yeah but a talented trio at Queen Victoria Hospital was changing all of that and they were about to put Australia in the the F. history books so I wanted to do the IV if in a totally different way to the way they were doing it because I wanted to sort of utilize methods that upton animals scientist Alan Trounson originally trained as a bit and he was recruited to the hospital by IVF pioneer car would call would he add made work with John Leyton to develop a totally different system which was using fertility drugs to stimulate the women's we could get more eggs and hints more embryos what happened is is that actually work that was a system that actually work it was a huge leap forward they found a way to create multiple viable embryos at a time. and freeze them and every extra embryo meant another chance of creating a baby for a couple who couldn't otherwise have one is every stage in artificial auctioning still precarious so in those early days a significant proportion of those embryos just were lost in the phrasing prices will only about the tain percent survive treatments ended with a live baby back then today that figure stands at about thirty percent but even so this scientific breakthrough was life changing for wannabe parents Allen trouncing an and I found the could cope with disappoint but absolutely you know very well let's actually because they understood this was a very early in in terms of the research so the chances of getting outcomes would be very low if anything happened when somebody got pregnant and is is it was astonishing and so when we go to Ronald pregnancies from the methods of using John and in the whole world Sunday stood up and so what what the heck did you uh-huh okay so let's meet the American couple at the heart of the story Jain they land in Australia had Elsa Riaz respond VF Treatment Will Gab. Kovacs was one of the doctors at the Queen Victoria Hospital remember I said they were millionaires. That's important to this story but back then Gab Kovacs had no idea just way she was dressed in my she spoke Mississippi very well off ever probably struggling to spend the money Florida's squad expensive to fly back in the ninety ninety eight I relatively much more than what they are now and with quite a big deal to come in have a here and leave over here we felt sorry for him and my secretary always suggest to be discounted faithfulness Israel's who've had no idea that they were hard wealthy he remembers Elsa being very dramatic and difficult to deal with but she had good reason to be very hollies triangle they had a terrible history. I guess you've gone through this beforehand and they've pretty stressed to fly over here they had one child who they'd lost done with he was murdered I think we're next Senate confirmed the de tough and rather really came to have another child and if they're only hype that's why they came to throw you both Mario and L. Surreal had children with previous partners but they'd tragedy else's ten year old daughter had only recently died she'd been playing with a gun and it went off killing her that is absolutely horrific so that maintains that there was so much emotion entangled with this whole process that's right there was but the process started well three Brioche created for the couple using else's eggs and donor sperm so they had three chances of success Yup and lied about eleven o'clock midnight on our set evening and she was very dramatic everything was lots of drama so she had her ex collected to a street is beforehand fertilize and they would have developed and we would have chosen the best probably wanting to US Ramdas back which would then be tempted to be frozen suggesting the Million Dollar Question He Elsa Riaz Has three embryos frozen did she get pregnant no unfortunately she didn't Elsa miscarried the first embryo but then rather than try again straight away the reassess headed to Chile in nineteen ninety-three some reports say they adopted a baby there but then the ultimate tragedy flying back to California in crashed Elsa and Mario both died and what they left behind was a massive estate valued at eight million dollars and of course there too remaining embryos the news reached Australia the next year in nineteen eighty four and that's when all hell broke loose in Nineteen eighty-one childless Californian elsewhere and Mario reels came to Milton's Queen Victoria Hospital to join the Ivy if Creole's couple failed in their first attempt to have a child and left Australia leaving behind the two embryos for a second attempt at a later date before the couple could try again they were killed in a plane crash in Chile two frozen embryos in the fridge over nobody knows who is the move who's responsible no one really knew what to do with the Riaz embryos in the early days of Dr Deb Kovacs more first of all we didn't have further ambrose whatever Awadh and secondly we didn't ever anticipate the fact that patients moths all built for young people they're all infertility H it didn't really occur to some of the talk in the early days we had a very simple consent form with no different heading consent form for an operation but soon after that we included consent foam which d the options and the raiders case Jane triggered bid consent Foams but what you found out is that it also unleash these Almighty public debate about the Status frozen embryos and the ethics of obvious I mean this was hard stuff where embryos groups of cells all they something more he is one of the rights for we need a legal guardian who has the interests of these his chew babies at hat and he is the Anglican Church of you is that I've regarded as a positive gift from God that is there is a tremendous new opportunities available in this new technology the Riaz case also demanded lawmakers onto the question when does human life begin and if an embryo was considered to be a person should enjoy the same legal rights as a child but I can two frozen embryos really be as to a

"Do it. Okay. Okay. Okay. Queen victoria. We're going to talk about her. Okay. A real real. We're going way back right way back. Yes. And I started just we'll never won the headline got my attention Queen Victoria's voracious appetite for food and sack. I started reading this fascinating article about Queen Victoria, and about the things that she loved in life, and how she just wasn't afraid to say, this is how I want to be in a time that women were not expected to be this way at all. Yeah. Like eighteen thirty seven something like that. Yeah. So back in the eighteen hundreds Queen Victoria was alive, and she was living her life. And there are all these accounts. About her and how she behaved. So Queen Victoria was she was a full fuller woman yet around stature. Yeah. And she was only five feet tall. She when she was growing up, and she was little she would only be able to eat milk and bread and just like most women of that time, the whole idea of like loving food and being into food and having an appetite and wanting to eat it was very very frowned upon for women. Yeah. And how does that connect to sex? It's so fascinating because the whole idea of women being into sex wanting sex wanting to be. To like cross the finish line right in times of having sex. No. What does it is having a big? Oh, that's what I thought you meant. Okay. Didn't. Feel that way. Right. Like women weren't supposed to want anything that was pleasurable. It was supposed to be you're supposed to be dainty properly tiny and prim and quiet, and the whole thing and Queen Victoria was like, I'm tossing all of that out the window, and I'm not going to be that way. She vowed when she was a child, and she could only have bread and milk. So that she was supposed to be little tiny thing that when she grew up, and she was running the show. She was going to eat mutton every day. That's like she did eat a lot. And so that's what she it's very clear that she was eating a lot. Her body shaming situation. This is just a like, here's what you have like fall asleep at the table. I'm only saying this for movies. I saw yes specifically, Victoria and Abdul which is a delightful movie. So she loved mold wine ice creams cakes. Pastries, the whole thing and. Her children and grandchildren had to eat what she said like plane roast broth all of that stuff that was appropriate for Little's. But she wanted whiskey cake ice cream all of the above girl. Go get it. Now, one doctor said to her if you keep eating like this you're going to die you need to eat healthier food. So what she did is she ate the healthier food just on top of her regular food. She could feel like. Are you strawberries on your on top of your? It's exactly. Yeah. Now at the time women were they shouldn't as a woman, you weren't even allowed to like say, oh my gosh. This is so delicious like it's just fascinating. And there's a lot of conversation about how this was actually the beginning of eating disorders in women because culturally, you had to have control over your body and over you're eating and over everything we just didn't have a name for it. Exactly women were not supposed to have high season or exciting foods is this was written in a young woman's book of health, which has published in eighteen fifty five and any idea that women would be into food meant that they might be into an interested in other bodily pleasures, which was very frowned upon Queen Victoria, though when she and Prince Albert got married in eighteen forty in. February she noted in her diary a few days after their wedding. We did not sleep. Much talking about their first few nights to on which is also frowned upon. They had a fine collection of erotic arts, according to a historian Queen, Victoria and Prince Albert and Victoria was very distraught. When her doctor said that she should not have sex anymore. If she didn't want to get pregnant, she regarded her nine pregnancies as a tiresome impediment to married life. There was no birth control. If you were having sex, you were going to get pregnant are ways around it. Yeah. But I think like a lot of times those ways aren't that reliable? That is true. You know from what I hear it was so fascinating, she loved roast beef. She loved whiskey, and she was super powerful because she was the Queen. So she was allowed to ignore the social constraints that other one other young women had to really adhere to right. And she was like I'm gonna make my own choices about my diet. I'm going to be the way that I want to be and live the way that I wanna be and live my life the way that I want to. And this was all I mean, the Victorian values were so different like Queen, Victoria, the Victorian era. Right. It's funny that that doesn't really reflect who Queen Victoria, so true. Yes. Because you think of the proper ladies green tea. Like oh. And Queen Victoria was like slugging whiskey and like romp in between the sheets and falling asleep at the table. He's apparently good for her. Didn't you live a long time?.

"Stamps off. I mean at the at the time it's not clear who's gay because nobody can come out. Right. But obviously if you have forty two grandkids some of these princes woman. All right at least five or gay. We don't even know who it is. So yeah, I had a very hard time. Finding a Princess who would talk stamps and shooting with prince, George, but she was very active matchmaker. I think you know, she took all this various one of her most serious duties, well, if you think about what was I mean when she wasn't overseeing the Royal Navy out captain Aubrey ING around eliminating the Barbary pirates. And I don't think he was on the piracy just I'll just happened to Gilbert and operettas, I don't know how much she was actually on the boats while she was managing the British Royal family, pretty successfully. But her oldest grandson was a young man named William who was heir to the throne of Prussia and ended up becoming Kaiser Ville helm the second. That's so crazy. So here she has two grandsons one of whom is the king of England and one is the Kaiser of Germany, and these were nations that were in a struggle now that Germany had. Rather that Prussia had become a kind of not only unified nation, but Prussia had ascended to being the. The nation of the Germans Austria had always been the most powerful Germanic empire. They central Europe. But the Austria was in decline. There was an Ostro Prussian war right in this period in eighteen sixty six and the result was that the Prussians sort of became the the font of the German people or the new team to beat and Kaiser film takes control. And now it would appear that Queen Victoria's machinations actually working as she intended working to solidify Europe because their familial bond would relieve some of these dynastic struggles and the this the struggles of empire to rival empires are both being run by first cousins. And it's funny since you mentioned counter, alternate histories, imagine a world in which Victoria, only has the one child. I think Victoria is. Well, we'll Helms mother. Right. And what that means is he would have inherited the British throne as well. So you could be you could have whatever happens when all the tensions of World War One or boiling up and Britain is faced by the fact that the Kaiser Prussian king is sitting on their own throw. Now, it might not have gone. Well, well, it's hard to. It's so hard to alternate history that period because there are so many factors and one of the ones that we always think of as being a factor in both World War One and World War Two is the fact that Britain and France and these maritime economies had the outlet of of empire, the outlet of colonialization. They were I mean, all the wealth pouring in provides Britain famously, I think you may have heard this story but lost the United States in a little conflict, the revolutionary, and I hate that. I know that was bad news. And just think if the British continued to run the colonies he'd be like Canada. We'd apologize for everything. We would have abolished slavery. Sooner. That's true. No war of twelve. Well, although that may be more benevolent policies toward the Indians. That may not none of that may have come to pass. I mean, the British were never super benevolent towards the Indians. But also, the American South was a big up at the mercantile nature of the raw materials tobacco and cotton, although Britain eliminated, slavery, and they wouldn't have had the clout to do it. And we, but but the American South was feeding the mills and the bordellos of the United Kingdom, and they turned a blind eye to the slavery because it was so profitable to trade with the southern states..

"Stamps off. I mean at the at the time it's not clear who's gay because nobody can come out. Right. But obviously if you have forty two grandkids some of these princes woman. All right at least five or gay. We don't even know who it is. So yeah, I had a very hard time. Finding a Princess who would talk stamps and shooting with prince, George, but she was very active matchmaker. I think you know, she took all this various one of her most serious duties, well, if you think about what was I mean when she wasn't overseeing the Royal Navy out captain Aubrey ING around eliminating the Barbary pirates. And I don't think he was on the piracy just I'll just happened to Gilbert and operettas, I don't know how much she was actually on the boats while she was managing the British Royal family, pretty successfully. But her oldest grandson was a young man named William who was heir to the throne of Prussia and ended up becoming Kaiser Ville helm the second. That's so crazy. So here she has two grandsons one of whom is the king of England and one is the Kaiser of Germany, and these were nations that were in a struggle now that Germany had. Rather that Prussia had become a kind of not only unified nation, but Prussia had ascended to being the. The nation of the Germans Austria had always been the most powerful Germanic empire. They central Europe. But the Austria was in decline. There was an Ostro Prussian war right in this period in eighteen sixty six and the result was that the Prussians sort of became the the font of the German people or the new team to beat and Kaiser film takes control. And now it would appear that Queen Victoria's machinations actually working as she intended working to solidify Europe because their familial bond would relieve some of these dynastic struggles and the this the struggles of empire to rival empires are both being run by first cousins. And it's funny since you mentioned counter, alternate histories, imagine a world in which Victoria, only has the one child. I think Victoria is. Well, we'll Helms mother. Right. And what that means is he would have inherited the British throne as well. So you could be you could have whatever happens when all the tensions of World War One or boiling up and Britain is faced by the fact that the Kaiser Prussian king is sitting on their own throw. Now, it might not have gone. Well, well, it's hard to. It's so hard to alternate history that period because there are so many factors and one of the ones that we always think of as being a factor in both World War One and World War Two is the fact that Britain and France and these maritime economies had the outlet of of empire, the outlet of colonialization. They were I mean, all the wealth pouring in provides Britain famously, I think you may have heard this story but lost the United States in a little conflict, the revolutionary, and I hate that. I know that was bad news. And just think if the British continued to run the colonies he'd be like Canada. We'd apologize for everything. We would have abolished slavery. Sooner. That's true. No war of twelve. Well, although that may be more benevolent policies toward the Indians. That may not none of that may have come to pass. I mean, the British were never super benevolent towards the Indians. But also, the American South was a big up at the mercantile nature of the raw materials tobacco and cotton, although Britain eliminated, slavery, and they wouldn't have had the clout to do it. And we, but but the American South was feeding the mills and the bordellos of the United Kingdom, and they turned a blind eye to the slavery because it was so profitable to trade with the southern states..

"What if it was mod Queen of Norway? Well, it's funny because we think of these alternate histories, right like Assad in Syria, his original his heir was his oldest son boscell who was a playboy. And everyone thought oh this guy, you know, he's not fit to take over the house of of Assad and he ended up dying in a playboy style car crash. And then his son Bashar who was like a mild mannered up the Malla gist. Yeah. He's an eye doctor and everyone thought, oh, what have you know, this guy like liberalized, this is going to be great. Thank goodness this guy came along. Instead of that darn playboy Thailand the issue right now where they they just worshiped their previous king pictures everywhere. It's against a lot of say anything, but nice about the guy, which is why we're not going to want the ties and the scientologist after nice king of Thailand, but he can't live forever. And when he when he died at an advanced age, I think he was in his nine. His playboy son tech the throne. And now don't put up any footage of that guy because he's going to be doing something goofy. And it's against the law. Yeah. Really really hard to worship him as he as he wrecks Porsches or whatever he's doing Victoria was very worried about had. Albert Victor did not take the throne.

But a hereditary title could still be granted by a monarch, you know, you could be made the Duke of something, and it would transfer to your family and come with land that doesn't happen anymore. Right. The last time the Queen of England granted a hereditary title. I don't know what it was. But not in recent years. So if for example, Kate Middleton wanted to just 'cause she's duchess of Cambridge. She can't like tear down Cambridge University and build whatever she wants hot yoga studio. They no longer have that kind of power and that was in declined throughout the seventeenth eighteenth nineteenth centuries. You know, the like Oliver Cromwell definitely took some of the power away from the monarch. And it was the air the rise of the the parliament and democracy was in the air. No longer absolute monarchs, but they do still have a very important power, which is over family of. Fares and family trees. Right. Well, and in politics as well much more so than they had in the twentieth century. Sure. But I was trying to jump to the nominal topic. Kind of influence that someone like a Queen, Victoria, the familiar power though, translated into real political power and political power in Europe at that time was a family business. Well, there's a lot of it is just alliances instability. You feel like France is not going to invade you if you can marry somebody off to of French nobler, France, not being a good example here, but it's complicated, though, when everyone is related to everyone because if everyone's related to everyone, it's no longer really inhibits political problems. Right. You need a few unrelated countries that everyone can still invade. Right. I mean, if you read Shakespeare just being related to someone does not keep you from wanting them dead. And this was the case in the nineteenth century that literally all the crowned heads of Europe were related and intermarried. Well, so part of this Pax Britannica this sense that now that the United Kingdom was the glue. Global hegemony that their navy was capable of projecting their political power globally. And also, this is after the wealth of nations was written and and Britain adopted capitalism as their lingua franca. It was now seen as bad for business to have war it nation of shopkeepers now. That's right, not admirals or whatever anymore. And so what had been prior to this an era where Europe was or multiple errors where Europe was sort of almost constantly at war in one form or another Queen Victoria in particular as she became more and more of a power and more and more of a personification of the Pax Britannica. She said about two through this process of marriage alliance solidify what was hoped to be a kind of perpetual era of inter. Linked European nations that had no cause to war and Victoria because she was having never seen actual siblings. I guess she thought no one could ever fight. Well, Victoria knew a little bit about sibling rivalry because she had nine children and her nine children were all princesses and princes and potentially major players in the Europeans fear of influence, and she was very adept at marrying her children to other Royal houses. We have the idea that Queen Victoria was sexually repressed this her era. But I understand that's actually not true. There are many accounts that she was deeply in love with Albert famously more for decades after his death and was actually pretty into sex, but less so into child rearing like I don't know if she was the most attentive mom that wouldn't have been very fashionable. I think she turned her. Over two thousand nannies. I think she also like beat them and told them they were ugly. I mean to be fair if you've seen a lot of pictures of nineteenth century royals, many of them probably were ugly. Although her children were often strangely attractive. Are you picturing?

Victoria, and Albert were it was an arranged marriage. Like, all of these marriages would've been, but they actually were quite passionate with one another.

You're totally speaking my language, except I'm pretty sure most peeps in this scenario aren't talking about money with their friends because that's a super awkward topic. Why does everyone make it so weird, dude? I know right. It doesn't have to be that awkward game. And we'd like to talk about personal finance, especially weekly in my dining room over a craft beer on our podcast how to money whether we're talking about ways to cut your grocery Bill creating side hustles or traveling the world on less. We're having conversations about personal finance and how it relates to normal people who want to enjoy life in also be money smart. That's right. We're all about making these topics relatable and enjoyable, so it's something you'll want to talk about the next time you meet up for drinks. So if you wanna level up your personal finance game. Then be sure to listen and subscribe on apple podcasts, the heart radio app, or wherever you get your podcast. Just search for how to money..

You're the Carnegie's in the melons and the although they were obscenely rich. There was an obligation as a a millionaire what we would think of as a billionaire now to turn that money back into public work. I would imagine we'll. Have a full omnibus entry about carting free library someday. Because basically every American got a library because Andrew Carnegie had more money than he knew what to do with. And I think when we look at contemporary billionaires. I mean, very famously Bill Gates was in his forties and had never given away Hemi. He had some road to Damascus moment. I guess well, Warren Buffett called him up and said, you earn embarrassment to billionaires everywhere, you're a bad name people love billionaires. But not you. And so he so gates form the Gates Foundation and became a great philanthropist.

It's a giant metal copper version of him. That'll be flying through space Yulon musk literally launched a corvette into space with a what a dummy of himself in it or something with headphones on listening to max, L tapes is it because there was some gap where there were no good billionaires to live up to the depression created the generation that couldn't look to philanthropic Carnegie and Rockefeller type. So it really all they had was bond movies teach them how to powerful person and that all went totally wrong. If there's been like one nice billionaire in the forties and fifties, everyone would have been like, oh, you just got to build a lot of hospitals like this guy. But when you think about the Kennedys when you think about the political dynasties of the United States from that same era, you know, the Kennedys were rich with bootlegging money. But whatever you think of Joe Kennedy's politics. He definitely charged all. All of his children with what the idea that they owed a lifetime of public service to the United States and think of all the the boat shoe manufacturers, they kept a float literally afloat, I think now there's a lot of cynicism about public service because it's always viewed through a lens of power power consolidation greed for power.

"My my dad's mother was Boris by time, traveling Victorians G wells came to you as a child and said, I've got some tips, but they were late my grandparents were lay breeders, my great grandparents relate breeders when you say your dad was born in twenty five twenty one twenty one. My dad was born in like forty nine and his mother was born in eighteen eighty I think or eighteen eighty six I guess, and my mother was raised by her grandparents, and my mother's grandmother was raised or born in eighteen lasers are good for giving kids. Cool ancestors for elementary school. Yeah. Like with the short Mormon generations on my sides. My kids are is like grandpa was too young for world. Two, but he fought in Korea. Mike, great, great great. Great grandfather. Drove a model a across America. That is they're actually that's true. They're great grandpa was too young for World War Two but fought in Korea, and I always felt bad for my kids because my dad fought in World War. But so, yeah, I mean, I have pictures around the house of my fairly recent just two generations away, and they're absolutely and their with their slaves. They're absolutely wearing. I mean, I actually have the papers where my what is it? Great. Great. Great. Grandfather was pardoned by president grant for his rebellion against the union. So what that communicated to me was a lot of anachronistic language, some values that felt kind of old even in the seventies. When I was a kid just sense of. It's difficult to describe other than just sort of as a sense of decorum shirt and honor, and maybe other kinds of greatest generation trapping. So you're not even aware of all the slaying and the song that for sure the jazz stuff. But but more like a sense that that a family should be committed to public service things like this. That felt like definitely not what they were teaching you in the sixties sounds like that's not going to traumatize your kids are family prioritized public service and honor. There's no wire hanger aspect except just that her dad is unlike a rock musician and sleeps as late. I mean, maybe the worst thing for her is that she wakes me up every morning dad, get up she's like rolling the carpet sweeper with one hand. And tapping you on the shoulder with the other it's nine o'clock. But I think it's true that we've we think back to the era of the colonial years and the the rich the the like. Robber baron era in the United States, the Carnegie's and the vanderbilts and the Morgan's and so forth, and we think of those people as kind of being like reprehensible capitalists or colonialists that the nineteenth century was the era is referred to as Pax Britannica, which was a whole hundred years where the British navy was so powerful that they kind of could impose Britain on the world and Britain's values and now we see that as the colonial era, and we are conscious of all of the crimes that has Herve. We used to just see it from the point of view of the people changing the map caller and being good job. You made a lot of the map, right? And it's a recent invention. Like, what if we consider that from the other is there any other point of view, you consider PAKs per Tanisha from when we were raised. This was just a game of stratego right Africa like in board games. Right. But during that period, there was a sense..

"Teenagers are getting there. Have you had the phenomenon? Do you have your friends with with grown kids? Yeah. Do they tell you how delightful it is that now their kids are actual adults? They can talk to and have real relationships with. I've heard of this. I think it's bull. Really, sure. Guess what? I have tons of adult. I don't need my kids to turn in my other adult friends. Good, right. Like my kids were delightful because they were my kids, and they would do fun childlike things with childlike joy and glee and as they become adults. You feel like you're going to be like these annoying adults. Even if they're great adults. I have plenty of adults. What I didn't have kids. Right. And so that's where you get the parents that are just so desperately hungry to meddle in their kids. Private and reproductive lives to give me grand kids, but you didn't have kids until fairly late. I mean, you weren't like having kids at twenty five that's true. But I was twenty seven when my son was born interesting. I was not feeling ready for fatherhood. But it turned out. I was actually pretty good at it. The one thing in my life. I actually felt did you have that experience with daughter were you like this is scary. But I knew I would be good at it. Because I'd seen seen movies about fathers. Well, no, I've seen the incontrovertible proof that all kinds of people have kids. And and it doesn't always select for the most apt to right? I mean, there are so many parents out there, and there is a obviously a wide variation in. How good parents are. I mean, some parents are truly bad, and you can point them out. They do bad things you can point them out at the store often. And some parents are you know, obviously, pretty darn good. But really it's a big fat middle there where you can do a pretty just average job and still you got the job done. Never went to jail, but we never actually talked about our feelings once I mean think about how many kids go to college in America today. And that was always like a benchmark where you good parent did your kids go to college, right? Are they more or less happy, and well adjusted I didn't I never expected that my kids were going to be were ever going to write a book about how their dad was the greatest dad that ever lived. I just knew I would be fine. What's your quivalent of like, no more wire hangers ever? I don't know that the reference like Joan crop Jones daughter. Oh, let's see. What's my weirdest thing? What's the Marlins going to be telling therapist about in twenty thirty? Well, I what is it going to be? I mean, I'm just I'm an anachronism compared to most of her peers parents, right? I'm a little bit older. And I believe even in Seattle. Yeah. Even so I think I'm not not a tunnel. But a little I mean, I was raised by Victorians, right?
