"Are a few campsites. Believe there's about four campsites between redwood and the state parks but they all have limitations of the rv length being between about twenty four to twenty eight feet. so we're talking about really small. Rv's can co into these sites. And i bet a lot of a mark somewhat difficult to access because there unless you're straight on that highway one. A one. a lot of stuff is going to be difficult to drive. So that wasn't really an option for us and probably for a lot of people out there the. Us forest in the area has a few more options that accommodate bigger vs. They actually have more in terms of the length of like thirty to forty foot sites so we may be could squeeze into one of those but the thing to know is that you don't have any hookups or you say don't have electric. You don't have you don't have water. Which might be fine for boondock in a few days. Were always traveling with our dog. And so and you can't have the dogs premature parks. I'll talk a little bit more about that at the end but we always want to make sure that when she's stain in the rig for the day we run in the morning and then she's usually exhausted and we have her stay in the rv. We make sure it's either warm enough or cool enough depending on where we're at. We have surveillance cameras so we can watch her throughout the day and then we leave you know some music or some other noise on for her so she's not kind of interrupted by the noises of the rv park and she does and fine with that setup but we know that going to the national parks means. You're not bringing your dogs along. We try to make sure that we're staying in a place where we have hookups and we can make it comfortable for her to hang out there for a few hours. While we go explore the park's where we ended up staying was the crescent city. Koa and i like this koa. We have a youtube review on this. So if you wanna check out our youtube channel we go through and have a review on the whole campground. It is very small for a koa and they kind of border along the redwoods park. I think they actually may be lease. The land are have a little bit of an agreement with the land. So you have these giant redwoods. You're pretty much in redwoods which is really cool but it also means that this is not one of your big super. Koa's with big roomy spaces to turn around your rig and park into spots. I think there were maybe only three or four spots that even could fit an rv of our size and that was one of the deluxe sites. And that's what we were in. We ended up being in. It was a little difficult to navigate. Investors spot and a little difficult to navigate out. We were afraid we might hit a tree at one point but we didn't so it ended up being just fine that people were very nice and we. We enjoyed it a lot so great. Koa we had planned to stay on the south side. Like i mentioned in a town called trend dad and we were going to stay at the azalea glenn. Rv park but we had to head back early so we ended up not getting to have some time on the south side. I think my overall recommendations. I have a few recommendations and one of them is that i think ideally if you had five nights four. Five nights for the redwood national park and state parks..

"Seneca motorhome throughout us and canada when borders are open. And we've been to thirty four of the national parks so we tend to bring you content about the national parks. But we have to talk about other. Rv related things today. We are discussing redwood national parks and state parks because there's a combination to those. Why would we visit redwood national park. Well these are the tallest trees on earth. So last week in the podcast. We talked about the biggest trees on earth in terms of the weight. The coastal redwoods are the tallest trees on earth. These trees were actually almost destroyed in eighteen. Fifty logging really started in the area and at that point in time there was two million acres of old growth redwoods that they had an existence and today only five percent of that remains because of the logging industry The redwood parks protect thirty five percent of what remains of that five percent and then much of the rest of that is held in public lands. And there's about one percent of it that is held privately and that doesn't mean that they're being destroyed and logged in that one percent of private Privately held redwoods. but mostly. You're kind of seeing more tourist attraction attraction type stuff so things that you would see at a private attraction but not necessarily at a national park. And we'll talk about some of those things at the end of the podcast so the tall trees is probably. What's bringing new to redwood national park but there's also a lot of other cool things to see there some old ranches that you can see. There's old minds that used to be around there. Some remnants and sites related to those minds there is world war two our stations. Which was something that surprised us going down highway one. Oh one along. The coast is how many of these places were put into place during world war two so that they could monitor everything going on with the war Pretty interesting there. And then there's some old home sites as well in redwood area there's also forty miles of coastal beaches so it's not just the trees and the redwood groves and all those areas but you also have the coastal beach and everything related to the coastal beaches tied polls and all those types of fun things and then you have those beaches surrounded by these really tall trees and impressive. Old growth redwood areas. So let's get into the logistics i..

"Sure that your parking your travel trailer or trailer your motorhome somewhere and then you have a different vehicle to take into these next areas. I'm going to mention so. The first is stout grove and this is up in jedidiah state park area which is in the northern part. There's a road called jalan Hill road and we accessed it from off of highway one ninety nine it's wind e it's tight it's mostly unpaved so of course it's not motorhome friendly. You can't turn around on this road not in a motor home at least In our jeep. We're fine and it was totally doable with a jeep even in stock car. I think he'd be fine. Just need to go slow because it is unpaved. The actual trail that you take to get into stout grove is only about a half mile. So it's not bad at all. You're not really dealing with stairs or any major elevation change though it's a very easy trail to take. And then what makes this area so cool because you have redwoods all over the place but what makes this area so cool is that they get a lot of flooding from the nearby river and what that does is it prevents the under story trees and the other plants and stuff that are kind of at lower elevation along the ground from growing. And so what you end up. Are these big clear spaces where you can walk around. And then you just have these massive giant three hundred foot tall redwood trees that are around by you so it's really impressive to see you feel like an aunt among these giant trees and it was really fun for the kids at one point in the trail it forks and just so you know that fork is going to make a big loop so it doesn't matter which direction you take your eventually going to come back out and you'll exit backup at the trail the same place where you came in from one of the things that makes this area so cool as there's fallen redwoods so the kids can see the underside and the root system. You can hike on two places you can Walk around him. There's places where they're kind of out in the inside and you can almost walk into the trees so the kids just treated it like a giant playground and they loved this area. The next place to talk about is fern canyon so first of all you had to gold bluffs beach so you're taking what's called davidson road which will just be off of the one..

California's iconic redwoods threatened by climate change

"Now Rangers and conservationists are developing plans to better protect them at a that the world's tallest trees May not survive future places that are almost certain to come. It's a story by Jim Carlton reporter at the Wall Street Journal. Jim Take us through this. So Gordon the California redwoods are famous for being fire resistant when you walked through mural Woods, Humboldt State Park. You know these places with the giant redwoods. You can see the burn marks from fires of, you know. Hundreds of years ago. The big called canals. Oh, and the big question is, Can the redwoods survive? Today's mega fires? Firestorms? These are gigantic fires that they've never really seen before. They're fueled by the climate change. Basically, that means it's really dry. There's congested force conditions, etcetera. And so it's really a big question Whether these redwoods can Take a and we've We're getting some of our first big test now. Yeah, All right. So there's been, uh, you could describe it better but of greater frequency of Maura. Intense fires. In addition to the number of fires, I guess right in these trees have done okay, but there is concern. Right? Well, we just kind of a little bit of background. I mean of the top 20 most destructive fires and California recorded history like 17 have happened in the last 10 to 15 years. Um and we just had, you know the paradise Fire, you know, keep the camp fire that killed anybody people, So they're bigger. They're deadlier, more destructive and they're starting to hit the redwoods. Now they're only the redwoods are protected by fog along the coast. From about the big Sur coast of central California to southern Oregon. And there is a pretty wet forest. And so they know they don't get a lot of fire historically would be a few. You know, a small fire. Every few decades on, it would kind of burnout. Ah, lot of the brush and kind of leave the big crease alone. But that's what's changing. Now speak with Jim Carlton reporter at The Wall Street Journal. His pieces called California's plan to save its 1000 year old redwoods from wildfires. So

"We did a little john over from about coups bay headed inward up to crater lake and then we came from crater lake over crescent city that actual route is taking highway one ninety nine which is also known as the redwoods highway that goes from grants pass oregon and takes you into crescent city. And that's about three and a half hours so if you're planning to do crater lake at the same time while you're out in this area that's about a three and a half hour on a good driving day you know in an rv and stuff. Sometimes it takes longer. But that's kind of what you're looking for. Their we then headed down on highway. One a one as we were continuing our journey through california but we ended up heading east at about eureka so we ended up catching highway two ninety nine. Which takes you kind of through the mountainous area by mount shasta whiskey town national recreation area things like that and took us over to lassen volcanic so again are our trek that we did was crater lake over to the redwood and then over to the lesson and i think a lot of people do this so i kind of wanted to mention that as an available option. You're not really going to deal with anything too terribly. Difficult to drive in your rv. There's definitely some mountain passes and some mountainous driving that you have on that highway. Two ninety nine which leaves from kind of your rica california where the redwood is at. And then as you're heading over to lassen but on the redwoods highway that you're taking from grants pass oregon down to crescent city. There's not really anything to derrick terribly difficult there and then highway one. Oh one is totally doable in an rv totally to do people take that all the way up and down from washington all the way down to san diego. We didn't go that far but The distance that we did take it was fine to do in your rv. It is a little bit slow going on that because you are talking about hills and you're going around trees so it's not a straight shot forward. It also means that the speed is pretty slow and there was construction when we were going through there. And i've heard there's even more construction. Actually i think currently right now they have a whole Wiped out area because of mudslides and stuff. So they're dealing with some repair on highway one zero one and that is making it slow going in that area hopefully by the summer though that'll be fixed the other to mention while we're talking about logistics and driving is that there's a lot of wildfire issues that you have to deal with when you're heading out to california in this area general. We did this trip in. September of twenty twenty so this last year we had the pandemic to deal with of course so that meant a lot of things were closed like all of the visitor. Stations were closed. There weren't any ranger talks Pretty much everything was shut down. I think even the Campsites that are there at redwoods of those were closed as well. We didn't end up camping there. I'll talk more about camping at the end but A lot of stuff was closed because of the pandemic and then the other thing that we ran into really our pacific northwest trip was wildfires. One fires were really bad throughout oregon and we were constantly checking in so web. That's the place to check for. Fire information if you're heading out west actually. I think it goes throughout the whole country. But if you're heading out west in the summer or fall you just need to plan to be checking this for part of your your journeys because if you're maybe in places like utah and you're going to the canyons and stuff you're not going to have to deal with wildfires but if you're heading to the mountains of.

Good day internet at patriotair dot com slash dpd s. Let's start with a few things you should know. Amazon has discontinued its prime pantry. Grocery and household item service products previously available in pantry will now be available like any other products on amazon. So it's not going away to gather but the service itself prime pantry launched in twenty fourteen offering reduced shipping on up to forty five pounds of household goods for a monthly fee. Amazon node vied prime pant pantry subscribers about the closure in december and then issued refunds the. Uk's competition and markets authority launched an investigation into google's privacy sandbox. That would block third party. Cookies in chrome regulator received complaints from the marketers for an open web coalition saying the plan would abuse google's dominant position in online advertising. So the investigations going to evaluate. If the privacy sandbox changes would concentrate advertising spending market share with google samsung launched the galaxy chromebook to a cheaper version of the galaxy chromebook at launched last year so instead of four k it has a ten eighty p lcd screen with less storage fewer cameras less ram.

I three ten ten eleven ten one. one zero. You eight gigs. Ram and one hundred twenty five gigs of storage for six hundred ninety nine dollars a shortage of semiconductors affecting automakers. Volkswagen said last month that they needed to adjust first-quarter manufacturing plans around the globe because of the shortage. Now honda says it will cut domestic output by about four thousand cars this month at one of its factories in japan nissan is adjusting production numbers for its note hatchback model and ford has moved up previously planned downtime at a kentucky plant for its sport utility vehicle factory to the jin chips all right. Well we're talking about cars. Let's talk about the the apple car. Yeah a lot of rumors as of late will really over the last few years. But but but the rumors had resurfaced recently and hyundais. Now talking to apple about kerr's so says the company hyundai representative told cnbc quotes. We understand that apple isn't discussion with a variety of global automakers including hyundai motor as the discussion is at its early stage. Nothing has been decided. Korean economic daily said that apple suggested the arrangements and hundred was reviewing the terms that involved e production and also battery development hyundai has had his own battery platform called e. g. m. p. going into production later this year. So might be saying what you're doing. Reuters sources say that apple would like to produce a passenger vehicle by twenty twenty four however might not be that date bloomberg's mark gurman reports in thomas e. v. from apple is five to seven years away and michio recently said he wouldn't be surprised if it takes until twenty twenty eight. Yes what's probably going on. Here is apple and i think this significant part has decided to start investigating how they would build. Whatever it is. They're going to build whether it's a whole car or an integrated platform and they're going to different manufacturers and parts suppliers and folks like magna including hyundai. And saying what are you got. How can you help us with this. And is a great company for this because they make parts they make systems. They make full cars. There's all kinds of services in the conday company that could play a part with apple so it may not be. That apple knows what they want from hyundai. It may just be that they're going and saying hey let's talk. You do a lot of the kinds of things that we think we're going to need. I'm pretty excited about this. I just got my first hyundai ever this year and my perception of this story was weight but hyundai currently uses android auto and a lot of their their cars. So i would love to see. How apple would integrate Hyundai's current technologies into something that is very useful for that apple ecosystem not just looking at e itself but also the The the systems inside of it the controls in how they would manage that four a driver and a passenger in the car. Yeah i mean. I think that's one of the big questions that i have is okay. Let's say let's say it's hyundai that that applet ended up working with with clearly not set in stone at least from what we know at this point. But let's say it's the companies for kicks. Let's imagine that that's what it is. Yeah it is. It is an apple car that hyundai produces a lot of parts for the way that works with lots of other companies to produce other hardware for apple. I mean that that's the loftiest kind of goal that we're looking at and maybe that would take till twenty twenty eight at you know if if apple was lucky. I think it probably has more to do with like you said shannon not that you know android auto wouldn't still be prevalent in a lot of passenger vehicles but maybe at some sort of it's a special relationship. It's it's a special kind of os inside a car that is supposed to you. Know i don't know move some merch because What apple is providing on the software side is is. Is that much more interesting. I really don't know if you look at that. Bloomberg article mark gurman sources are saying that Tesla people that apple has hired are working on things like interior exterior. Drive train stereo. Desist the kinds of things. You need when you're building a car not carting a software platform so then the question becomes is it the apple car period. Maybe hendaye makes it. Maybe somebody else makes it. And you know they'll figure out how to distribute it or is it the apple car by sunday and you go to hyundai dealership to buy it the way you went to an. At and t. store to an apple iphone but it's really apples car in cooperation with sunday. Are there multiple partners. I mean that's all the kind of stuff we're waiting to see but it really does feel like we have gotten to the point where this is no longer just yeah. They're working on project titan. They don't know what they're gonna do to. They have an idea. It's more than just software and they're working out the details. Maybe they don't even know that yet. Well i'm interested to see what happens but we also have some other news. Security among the systems impacted by the solar winds attack is the electron filing system. Used by the us federal courts at investigation is underway to determine if confidentiality of documents filed with the courts was breached and as a result starting wednesday confidential documents filed with the courts will be stored on standalone systems. Not uploaded big difference so these are documents sealed from public access because they contain sensitive information like investigative techniques identities of informants and a lot more other. Us federal agencies affected included the justice department the state treasury and energy departments as well solar winds has engaged. The krebs stay most security consulting group to help deal with this attack. That firm was formed by alex. Stamos the former chief security officer at yahoo and facebook and chris krebs the former director of the us cybersecurity and infrastructure security agency or sisa. So krebs was fired last month. By the president after finding no evidence of with voting systems in the twenty twenty election. Yeah stamos first of all brilliant for those two to team up and smart for solar winds to engage them for what they say is Helping with transparency with companies that are affected But this we we are not done finding out how bad this is. There are reports that there may have been other ways that this whoever is behind this intruded beyond just solar winds. They're finding evidence of that. They have not been able to root out the people that got into this vulnerability from all systems yet. They're still in there in a lot of cases. And you know this. This kind of confidential information is exactly the kind of thing you fear that someone would get intruding into a government system informants investigative techniques that you can now learn from to evade being prosecuted or caught yourself. That's that's crown jewel type stuff it's it's very interesting. In fact krebs spoke on record saying that it could potentially take years to figure out how deep the solar winds attack actually went and how many different kinds of infrastructure. You know brands and everything that it might have affected so this is not something. That's going to die anytime soon. I'm glad that they are reaching out. Craig's and stay most though because that i agree with you tom. It's excellent. excellent team roku made a few interesting announcements roku says. Npd data shows that the roku s was the top selling smarter operating system in the us and canada in two thousand twenty thirty one percent market share in canada. Thirty eight percent in the united states That's pushed the samsung's tizen number two. At least we don't actually know samsung's ties and was number. One in two thousand nineteen also announced a wireless soundbar reference design that uses wifi for its roku. Tv ready program remember. Last year roku announced the program which had a designed for wired. Sound bars. The program includes tcl. Pokemon on an element has just announced. They'll join as well with two point. Two point one ready sound bars roku tv ready to expand internationally later this year as well. But here's the big roku news roku has agreed to acquire exclusive global distribution rights to more than seventy five Shows documentaries some of which had not been released before qube shutdown. So there'll be some new stuff that nobody's ever seen after their exclusivity deal expires. That'll happen in a bit more than a year. Depending on the show roku will still have the rights to show the content just not exclusively until thousand twenty seven the content will have to be presented in original increments of ten minutes or less. The deal doesn't let them stitch it altogether. The content will be added to the more than forty thousand movies and tv shows already available. In the roku channel shows include from Be anyway punked. Murder house. Flip and dummy which stars anna kendrick. I never watched the new punk. I heard had its moments. The whole qube thing. It's really interesting to me because it was sort of like. It crashed and burned so quickly. And there's a lotta shot and friday around folks in the industry about it. And i think that's not because qube was doing things wrong. It was because the company had raised so much money time. Because you know. They had meg whitman. Jeffrey katzenberg who are you know. Heavy hitters and there was a little bit of like you are being to embassies and therefore you shall fail. The company did fail and the idea that some creators will have a new life on another platform shows. That just don't even saw but people still worked on. And maybe you're really good. I think this this makes a lotta sense and good for roku to get exclusivity for at least a few years so does roku have to wait at all in order to start showing this content or can happen immediately. I don't know when the start date. Whenever the deal is you know goes into effect. Then they'll immediately be able to to show it so you know within a month or so it would be my guess anyway but no they. They don't have once. The deal is actually in effect. They don't have to wait. What's going on here. is that the baby. Production companies own the rights to their own stuff but they have a two year exclusive for each one of their shows with qube and those two year exclusives are now being transferred to roku so roka will be able to have the exclusive for the remainder of whatever. The period was with quick. That's why it's more a year. Exclusively goes away then they still have the right to show it until twenty twenty seven but the production companies that made it can now start shopping at around to other places as well so the production companies do hold the content and remember this is just the content. Qube is still in a over. Its turnstile technology which is holding it up from selling its technology and i would expect once it resolves that lawsuit should resolve it in a way that they still hold their technology. They'll sell that to so this isn't the last you're going to hear could be selling off a part of it. I would imagine. Gotcha yeah that whole. The whole technology part of qube was again was an ambitious thing that was released at a very inopportune time in twenty twenty when everyone was like. We're just sitting at home like we don't need this like mobile phone technology. It's like cool that you can shifted around but you can't even cast thing. I mean the company did fix that pretty soon after allow about she was just. I mean it's just did. The timing couldn't be worse but that technology when you think of it in a variety of other form factors such as monitors that swivel talked about some of those yesterday. I don't know that qube or tiktok or snapchat or all of the stuff where we're like. Oh yeah that's the. That's the portrait view. Rather than landscape view. That works for certain apps is is is all that this is four. I think there's more to it So we'll see what happens and there's patents and things that are always valuable because you can use those to extract some concessions and money and stuff. So yeah expect that all to come join the conversation in our discord which you can join by linking to a patriotic. Can't get in there and talk about your favourite qube shows with all the other discord folks. Just lincoln to your patriotic out at patriotair dot com slash. Dpd s all right shannon. How do you clone a security key. Well i i will say please do not stop using your security keys because of this story i will explain it. Researchers from ninja lab published a paper on thursday showing how you could clone a google tightened security gate this is a two factor authentication key which is very similar to a you. Be key that you have to plug in or tap in order to access an account after putting in your username or your password credentials. Were both so in order to pull off the clone. You would need physical access to the key for about ten hours. Sometimes a minimum of ten hours just kind of depends on how good you are at this. About twelve thousand dollars worth of equipment physical equipment and custom software and some advanced skills in electrical engineering and cryptography as well. So you have to remove the chip and then take measurements of it at a being registered on each account that you went to attack the measurements observe electro magnetic radiation as the chip generates digital signatures that let the attacker slowly deduced the private key so measurements take about six hours per account. That's not including taking apart. The original tighten security key putting it back together. Then you need to seal the chip back into its case. You also need the targets password in order for this to work. So the reason it works is because of vulnerability in the security hardware chip residing within the google titan key and that is called an eighty seven hundred x by this company called. Xp if it's exploited in attacker could grab the elliptic curve cryptographic private key for the account and the same chip is actually found in other two factor. Authentication physical tokens as well like There's a ubiquity that it's found in but chances of attack or very very minimal given the scope of the attack so if you do all of this without the target ever noticing then they would never duplicated key but again given the scope given how much it costs and everything behind the scenes probably when it happened to normal user. The point of these security keys being the best way to use For two factor. Is that you can't even get at your private key right you. Nobody has to be able to get in there like the chip. Just doesn't make it available so the fact that they were able to get in there and get it is huge. You know the fact that they were able to do this is significant. But i mean if you're not a target of an advanced persistent threat. You don't need to worry about this. No one's going to go to the trouble to do this. And even if you're a target. I would guess shannon that most of them probably would be able to notice if someone took their key for ten hours or more you. You likely likely would especially since a lot of people with hardware tokens like google titan will stick them on a on their keychain for example like with their house keys or whatever wherever they keep all those personal physical devices that they don't want lost or stolen they keep them all on engaging so if somebody was to take one of these out of your purse out of your gym locker wherever it might be and remove it for like ten hour street minimum. You would likely know that this would have happened. the neat thing about these chips inside of these. Google tightened security keys. And any other cryptographic hardware tokens like these is that. Even the manufacturer doesn't know the private key so the fact that they were able to find vulnerability on these specific chipsets is really interesting. And i think that's the important bit of that. Is is even though the google titan like the end all be all of really excellent. Two factor authentication. There's always. The potential that vulnerabilities can be found. So i'm happy that this research came out. It's so fascinating and it's so interesting in this means that an x. p. and other security chipset manufacturers that sell these teeny tiny chips to google or whoever the company might be They can build on this. They can research and figure out what the next version of their chipset needs to entail in order to not be vulnerable to this again in the future. Yeah i mean this is really a good security story right. We finally figured out because there's always a way right. We finally figured out the way you get the private key out of a security key and guess what it's really hard takes a long time and now that we know it we can make it even harder and hopefully you know push that barrier out even further and even if somebody did have time to do this and you didn't notice i was reading the paper because i'm a huge nerd and they go as far as using fuming fuming nitric acid in order to get like melt the epoxy off of the original google titan. How are you going to put that back together. In order for somebody to not notice like there's a lot of intricacies with this attack in order for it to actually be pulled off so chances are very very slim that somebody would be able to pull off so again as i said at the very beginning. Don't stop using your google tightened security key if you have one keep using it because chances are you would never be attacked with this. Just just know if you haven't seen it in ten hours look together strange. This is going to be in a movie though. I'm calling that shot right now. We're gonna we're gonna see this movie. Where like i hope so. Somebody goes into surgery and they take his key and they go out and do all this and they slip it back in because ten hours later. He wakes up from anesthesia on something like that. I just hope they talked to the researchers so they actually show it off right. Yeah Sony tv and audio announcements Starting with details for its own tv lineup. Sticking with lead ravi x four k and k. Tv's will support four k at one hundred twenty hertz variable refresh rate vr as well as a l l m low latency mode and e arc. These are all things that are important. If you've got a ps five now you've got sony. Tv they can go. That sony also has an improved a chip that is going to improve the picture and sound positioning. So it aligns with what you see on the screen. Sony's master series. Tv's will come with a sensor that adjusts white balanced immense. Your ambiente color temp. You don't have to do anything they'll just do it. Also an aluminum heat shield. That will make for brighter. All the sets will support. Hdmi two point one. Another big one for ps five dolby vision hdr angle tv. Sony also announced. It's three hundred sixty reality audio platform if you're not familiar with three hundred sixty degree audio places instruments and vocals in a virtual sound field around your head but using just the one speaker so you can do this in an amazon echo or google. Home sony will start streaming video with three sixty audio later this year. Starting with concert from zara larsson on january eleventh. And somebody's gonna make speakers that support this. It'll be may supported by other speakers as well. But sony is going to put out the are five thousand and three thousand They've got that dark cloth. Surface that all these speakers seem to have these days with either bronze or silver accents. Work with google and amazon assistance and can connect to select sony abroad via. Tv's as well as supporting wi fi bluetooth. Spotify connect in google cast. The speakers do automated calibration to the room. They're in donut. The press a button for that. Either and we'll simulate three hundred sixty degree audio for stereo tracks as well. The five thousand cost five hundred pounds or five hundred ninety nine euros no. Us price yet on the three thousand two hundred eighty pounds. Three hundred fifty nine euros. This seems this. Seems like it's shaping up to be one of the trends. Is this the sort of three hundred sixty degree audio while you're listening to your black bank and it's just one speaker or potentially a couple of speakers ativan. Maybe yeah yeah already supported. Yeah there's less of kind of like What do i have to do. Five point one surround or at least get a couple of speakers and make them a stereo pair type thing. I really haven't heard this in. I don't know. I used to hang out at magnolia at best. Buy all the time. And just like geek out on stuff like this. of course. this technology wasn't around at the time. But it's really come on. Let's turn on some stuff and see the speakers. Do it works well. Then that's awesome my first reaction because i got rid of my kind of pants speakers some years ago because friend of mine needed them more than i did and i didn't have room in my apartment but i miss that i'm also an a. A permanent now that's smaller and kind of has a lot of weird angles and i find audio bounces off walls in wiz. That wouldn't if it was more of a square box broom So i'm not sure that i'm the perfect target market for this. You're the you're the one puts this through its paces and sees if it really works. Yeah if i could actually work as advertised again with some funny angles in a big old frame. Then i'm i'm really into this and i've always been. I don't have a sony. Tv currently sorry zony. But i was abroad. Bravi a person for years. Nears i think what the new bravi line is coming out with. Looks really nice. And i mean not totally in the market for a new tv. But i like the fact that i might get a new sony again paired up with a sony speaker. You got three six. Yeah already got all this stuff. It's going to be a messed anyway. You slice it. But i like. I like this to be sixty reality audio platform. What would you have set up in your house. I was straight up going to mention sonos because if if it doesn't have the connectability to be able to work with all of my other platforms that currently have invested in. Then chances are i wouldn't buy it. So i do have sono says in my house and i do have some issues connecting those with other speakers in the household to like like my google hub for example so the fact that this works with google and amazon assistant the speaker specifically The audio speakers. I think that's pretty cool. I like that. They are bringing that in and i am interested because i do live in a household. That has very high ceilings. How this would work in that kind of environment. So yeah. I'm very interested in the audio aspect. Well you might also be interested in what colour has come out. Oh yes the folks who make things like toilets and and sinks and lots of appliances however. Been a real. Cas mainstay for the last few years for some cool innovations and this year is no different. Even though we're not in vegas koehler has a new smart bathtub called the stillness bath. That lets you use an app or use your voice using google or amazon's assistance to fill up the water or perhaps set the mood by changing the color of the lights around the tab or even add some fog. You know you wanna kind of pretend like you're in the then present routines also turn on features in a certain orders if you wanna get kind of creative. that's cool. Yeah the certain amount of limitations with the base model and the base model is not cheap so temperature and depth control models alone will cost around eight thousand six hundred ninety eight dollars. That's right it's almost nine thousand dollar bathtub. If you want the experience tower that lets you activate fog and aromatherapy. That will run you just over ten thousand dollars. Both models are available in july. There are real things and if you want the version with lights and floor grades for overflow fifteen thousand nine hundred ninety eight dollars available. This october signed me off. I won't be buying those. Nope not even a little bit but we could have taken a bath at s in the new in the pre show roger was like. Why would you want fog. It's like this. Why does anyone want to be on. Yeah racist luxury suites in hotels for sure as well as apple's houses sure yeah something well. Yeah it's it's that like hey look at what my bath can do people go. Wow very fancy and then you know ten years from now will be like remember when we thought it was fancied to talk to your bathtub so that it would start filling up without touching it but Yeah it's it's somewhat silly because of the price. But i'm not really much of a bath person but they do look very nice all right. Let's check out the mail bag but ads do it. Nick wrote in with a pronunciation. Ramps own neck. You are not alone he says. Ac's rog is an initial list. Because it's our og like fbi or cia. People say ron yet. They're lower end gaming brand tough not initially them. It's an acronym like scuba or produce you f but pronounced off. It's like ace's can't make up their name minds. Then there's strict which is our subbrand strikes as a word it's a completely nonsensical made up word. But it's a word and you pronounce it as such nick as honestly as somebody. That buys a lot of hardware. Because i've rarely had a bad experience with them over the past twenty years. I am baffled by some branding decisions. The one the bugs me. The most is the strict subbrand. Sometimes acis makes the tricks products. The high end product in the product stock yet other times. It's a mid range product. Would it be too much to ask for consistency and product. Branding twenty twenty one. Yes apparently apparently we feel your pain. Nick i love the dichter's just like i just need to vent you guys.

Boris Johnson says Britain needs its own Green New Deal

"Boris johnson has always been keen to burn it his green credentials and put tackling climate. Change at the front of his government's. Agenda is done so again this week setting out a long-awaited plan to make the uk a world leader in green technology as with most government announcements. However that will plenty of spending commitments already made being re announced but the most auden criticism came from the tories who said it goes against. The party's new electoral base and could cost them votes but business secretary. Alex chama rejected this notion. This is about leveling up across our country. We're talking about twelve billion pounds and he has around. Four billion pounds of this is new money. Other money is money that's been pledged previously on deed lost budget in in in march Book very importantly This billion pounds will help to bring in three times as much in terms of private sector money and supporting create two hundred and fifty thousand jobs but the have been some critics of this plan arguing that it really doesn't go far enough. The shuttle business sexually. Ed milliband made this point. There is an urgency. That isn't enough ambition. That isn't a real plan. He's got to do better in all of our interests that he does better. We will keep pushing the government on ambition on jobs on appropriate plan to rise to the scale of the climate emergency. We face chimp. Let's begin with this. Ten point plan of boys. Johnson set out in article in the financial times. In fact what did you make of it and how much of it was new money and new policy okay so this was a very long awaited announcement. They were meant to originally Back in the summer and it slipped because of pressures on number ten prime minister announced twelve billion pounds states investment program when you went through the numbers at ten about three billion pounds this new at included five hundred million hydrogen one billion pounds insulation three hundred million pounds for nuclear industry. I think what was interesting even if the money was pretty small. Change when you compare it said of the countries like franz chemmy refute these comparisons jeremy kuban late manifesto prince lansing which lici tuten sums of hundreds of billions of pounds of buried money. Guns was agreement. Deo i think it's still a political moment because as always this tension between people saying let's go green other Saying it will damage economy People in cost known areas concerned type. Slutty jim republic who worry about paying extra tax also green initiatives ambrose johnson especially saying worry we can. Tiny's these things together. We make sure. Green economic growth happens in some of the left behind redwood areas and talking about place humble months for over northeast. police o'clock. It's wonderful to have you on the podcast. What were your thoughts. When you saw this announcement here because johnson has talked a lot about green policy arisons locked summer but it fuses if that rhetoric has increase as jim said that is new money on some new policies to go with it to there is a but by i know about this was a. It's brilliant. Hear a british conservative prime minister coming up with a plan like this. Because although we've had david cameron promising the government ever and then we had theresa may actually legislating for a net zero twenty fifty which was very pioneering for a country the size of britain at the time. The thing is. We really haven't seen a prime minister set out in a speech or in a plan like this thing as visionary really and it is a great vision. Unfortunately it's really not matched by detailed plans and considering that a large chunk of it is dependent on trying to mobilize private investor capital. I'm just concerned that it's really not going to make. Investors are not going to invest unless they see the detailed policy until they know what the shape of any sort of regulatory framework has got to look like really not going to get people plowing in at the rate needed to fulfill this and when it comes to actually meeting that net zero goal twenty fifty. It's really not on track to do that. Unfortunately the classic example about chocolate changing which is provided uncertainty from best is if you look at one of the atoms. Boris johnson announcement which was carbon capture storage. Which is basically succour Boats on you bury it. The browns the tools boom cameron government promised been impounds towards that twenty fifteen a group of plug on that money or johnston's done this year's he promised eight hundred pounds in the spring budget yet. Another challenge main pounds this week. Hey presto Where we were five years ago with basically almost leg progress on cca. Yeah that's exactly. It had this sort of crisis. Feel about it really. Is you know god. We've got to do something on climate. Okay what do we do on electric cars. Oh i know will bring the target ford. That's actually relatively easy to do. It's important but unless it's matched by holocene setting out how people are going to be able to buy more electric cars and how the rollout of the charging infrastructure is going to work. You know it's really difficult to see how it works. I expected a guest to say something a little more meditative parts of this plan on you when it comes to the targets for making sure that new homes not built with natural gas boilers in them. For example you know that's really quite important. And of course at target itself has been brought forward slightly from twenty five to twenty twenty three at same these support for hydrogen also important but again. You look at what germany's doing in its recovery plan. It's got around. Forty forty billion set aside for electric cars renewable energy and so forth and france around thirty billion euros set aside nine billion of that is for hydrogen renewables alone so compared to that. The u k plan does look a little small were jim. This is one thing critics of picked up on the plan. Even who is labour's shadow. Business secretary has said it doesn't remotely meet the scale of what is needed. I think greenpeace charity have said similar things to all those criticisms fad. You because when it comes to government spending you can always make the case you should be spending more doing more radical things and as please note. This is a conservative government. This is not natural territory. Full them yet. But i think the first point to make our show on the business sexually set on the radio. This is a down payment but that will be more. Fiscal events is quite possible than the spending review. The we see next week that could be more money for example nuclear. They could say they're gonna stop negotiation sizewell c Pass station which would of course involve more money. And i think as well now. He's talking about how these provides whole sums compared to labor government beginning right now the thing to remember Tackle climate change isn't just about state. Money is also about regulation so of course the bundle twenty fifty borrowing in new pets from these laws as an example of wet government does not have to spend the money it can regulate and things happen and so many of these decisions of stems from theresa. May's decision donning moments of her administration commit twenty-fifty net zero target. Only kind of off the thought. She the mohanchris coop suasion joyfulness. She bandied about it even now known. Would think theresa may is great green ahead and yet she took this decision from which all sorts of future decisions have the stem. But i think to remember names of bishops is very seats. Promotional world where Christie is coming from fossil fuels. Were kind of on talking for. I think you have to remember that. The british energy system like any other system But also transport system unfairly household energy or freeways needs to be decarbonised. And i remember whether we're on track to do that.

Unfortunately it's really not matched by detailed plans and considering that a large chunk of it is dependent on trying to mobilize private investor capital. I'm just concerned that it's really not going to make. Investors are not going to invest unless they see the detailed policy until they know what the shape of any sort of regulatory framework has got to look like really not going to get people plowing in at the rate needed to fulfill this and when it comes to actually meeting that net zero goal twenty fifty. It's really not on track to do that. Unfortunately the classic example about chocolate changing which is provided uncertainty from best is if you look at one of the atoms. Boris johnson announcement which was carbon capture storage. Which is basically succour Boats on you bury it. The browns the tools boom cameron government promised been impounds towards that twenty fifteen a group of plug on that money or johnston's done this year's he promised eight hundred pounds in the spring budget yet. Another challenge main pounds this week. Hey presto Where we were five years ago with basically almost leg progress on cca. Yeah that's exactly. It had this sort of crisis. Feel about it really. Is you know god. We've got to do something on climate. Okay what do we do on electric cars. Oh i know will bring the target ford. That's actually relatively easy to do. It's important but unless it's matched by holocene setting out how people are going to be able to buy more electric cars and how the rollout of the charging infrastructure is going to work. You know it's really difficult to see how it works. I expected a guest to say something a little more meditative parts of this plan on you when it comes to the targets for making sure that new homes not built with natural gas boilers in them. For example you know that's really quite important. And of course at target itself has been brought forward slightly from twenty five to twenty twenty three at same these support for hydrogen also important but again. You look at what germany's doing in its recovery plan. It's got around. Forty forty billion set aside for electric cars renewable energy and so forth and france around thirty billion euros set aside nine billion of that is for hydrogen renewables alone so compared to that. The u k plan does look a little small were jim. This is one thing critics of picked up on the plan. Even who is labour's shadow. Business secretary has said it doesn't remotely meet the scale of what is needed. I think greenpeace charity have said similar things to all those criticisms fad. You because when it comes to government spending you can always make the case you should be spending more doing more radical things and as please note. This is a conservative government. This is not natural territory. Full them yet. But i think the first point to make our show on the business sexually set on the radio. This is a down payment but that will be more. Fiscal events is quite possible than the spending review. The we see next week that could be more money for example nuclear. They could say they're gonna stop negotiation sizewell c Pass station which would of course involve more money. And i think as well now. He's talking about how these provides whole sums compared to labor government beginning right now the thing to remember Tackle climate change isn't just about state. Money is also about regulation so of course the bundle twenty fifty borrowing in new pets from these laws as an example of wet government does not have to spend the money it can regulate and things happen and so many of these decisions of stems from theresa. May's decision donning moments of her administration commit twenty-fifty net zero target. Only kind of off the thought. She the mohanchris coop suasion joyfulness. She bandied about it even now known. Would think theresa may is great green ahead and yet she took this decision from which all sorts of future decisions have the stem. But i think to remember names of bishops is very seats. Promotional world where Christie is coming from fossil fuels. Were kind of on talking for. I think you have to remember that. The british energy system like any other system But also transport system unfairly household energy or freeways needs to be decarbonised. And i remember whether we're on track to do that. Speed that needs to

California wildfires show "climate change is here and now"

"Says says the the urgency urgency of of climate change is motivating her generation to political activism. We hear the words climate change all the time on the news during debates. For many, it's faded into the background soft into something too far in the fugitive, any effect. If we're looking at the fax, that's not the truth. We see the effects of climate change every day. As a client becomes hotter, the snowpack decreases. Growing up in California. This relationship between climate and water has always been clear to me. State has been dropped within half my life. And it's not just rain that's affected by climate change. According to the rising temperatures are increasing the number and severity of wildfires. In this year alone, more than million acres burned in California. We all walked outside and seen ash gray sky, the sun of Pan Lauren circle just visible through the haze. Stand me at first, because in my little coastal town, the heir always seemed clean and felt the sense of redwood forests in our hills in the Pacific Ocean at our shore. I'm scared of what the world will be like when I'm in adult, And I'm thinking that now what about when the next generation are adults? We have a duty not just to today's world, but to all future generations to work hard to solve this huge problem we've created. Last year, I marched on streets and went to rallies filled with Children carrying signs saying climate justice now The thing is, you can and will make an impact, but nothing will change unless those who the power of voting elect those who will work hard for us all. We need leaders who will, in the words of the preamble to the Constitution, established justice, promote the general welfare and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity by ensuring that Someday our posterity has a chance to live in a world where no one has to worry about smoke, Cohen skies or draft With the perspective on Grace Jones.

Are Australia's security agencies getting too big?

"Well, you'd have to be living under a rock not to notice that Australia, is radically different security environment than walls just two years ago. The Prime Minister he's locked into the situation to the nineteen thirties, and in the last six months, we've seen a massive increase to the budgets for defense and our intelligence agencies. Now, the external threats are undeniable. You just think of the rising power of China, but are we at risk of undermining our political freedoms by expanding the powers of security agencies too much. Hell big and powerful. Should we let security agencies get? And what kind of oversight exists to ensure that the intelligence is not collected or used for political purposes? What do you think we'll pay the redwoods is the former official historian and the author of several award winning books. He's most recent one is called law politics and intelligence a law of Robert. Hope. Welcome back to the show painter. Thanks very much tom thanks for having me and just into carol she's a visiting fellow and senior research fellow at the national.

This is your faces take us back to that time. Why are those commissions so important well between the mid seventies in the mid eighties over ten year period three successive Prime Ministers Whitlam Fraser and Hoke commissioned the same man just as good hope to conduct major inquiries into the intelligence agencies What he set up was not just not just any inquiry into a agency in Asia was the declared one and quite controversial that he set up a whole system for the agencies. Sitting out what each what agencies Australia needed, what each one should do, and what should not do how they should interact with each other, how they should interact with departments with individual ministers with the cabinet and cabinet committees and with the international partners Those we now know is five is and he emphasized a number of things. He particularly emphasized the intelligence system should serve the whole of government and not be unduly influenced as it was when he started by one or two very powerful departments, and towards that end, he said that should be a central coordinating agency which would only be invoked with assessment and he allocated collection assessment and dissemination different agencies. this one would be only concerned with assessment on like the American CIA and with its the independence of its. Assessments guaranteed by legislation. To, be independent from ministerial oh departmental. Precious. and.

Turns out, the people who work at Facebook are fighting just as much as the rest of us

"Out the people who work at facebook are fighting just as much as the rest of us from American public media. This is marketplace tech I'm Ali would. FACEBOOK is feeling the pressure to deal with election disinformation this week, the FBI uncovered a new Russian propaganda campaign targeting the twenty twenty election facebook announced. It would block new political ads for a week before the election on Thursday it said it would take down videos in which the president urged people in. North. Carolina to vote twice, which is illegal and activist asked facebook to ban event listings like the one that encouraged people to arm themselves and go to Kenosha. Wisconsin to confront protesters two people were shot and killed in Kenosha. So how does it feel to work at facebook right now, Ryan Mack is a senior tech reporter at buzzfeed. He says, the company has an internal communications platform called workplace and it is full of debate. Imagine what's going on on your facebook feed right now and that's happening exactly in the same way internally at facebook where there's more than fifty thousand police at have access to this thing. People are mad. There's other side as well in some cases. Defending the gunman in playing devil's. In In. So this is kind of devolved into this back and forth where Zucker actually stepped in earlier this week. and Said, look we need to have more discussions. We're GONNA. Movies into certain groups, but you're not gonNA be able to. Post openly argumentative things on our platform and the funny thing about workplaces at things also trend on workplace as well. So you can see when when things trend and so these things that get a lot of engagement because of the arguments often trend at the top which then creates this positive feedback loop where where people an arguing more and seeing it more and yeah. So it's it's it's not pretty. So, you're saying that facebook has an internal facebook. then. Mark. Zuckerberg has stepped in to police. The irony is hurting me in the head right now. He's announced kind of these new ways of looking at content. It remains to be seen what they actually do. There are hundreds if not thousands of groups on workplace and so imagine that you're at home all day you're cooped up you WANNA talk to your colleagues you WanNa be in the mix Were places where you're hanging out right for people who haven't been facebook I mean it's like entering to city a dreamy bubble, right? It's a city it like every wall is covered with art all the conference rooms have cute names. There's like redwood growing in the middle of their. Outdoor Park. There's the roof garden. A barber, you have a barbecue shop. Bikes repair shop. Yeah. Right. An and all, and they're balloons all over the like it's your face. Booker Verse Serie You. Know I mean it's like it is a lovely place to be, and I wonder if that's your thing you now that you have people at home like sort of like snapped out of it a little bit. If that you know if you were watching Mark Zuckerberg screen instead of in a room with all of your friends and fellow believers. Would it change your perspective a little bit. Does. Eliminate some of the the experience of working at facebook. It's actually really funny. 'cause we get these So before all hands meetings, facebook employees up vote questions of what they want to ask. Mark. Zuckerberg for the week and some of the questions like when are we gonna get like a snack budget for home? Are we gonNA like how do we get? How are we gonNA improve our lives at home and they were actually bonuses given to employees at trying to improve homeworking situations. They have disability to watch and send out you know some of their thoughts on what's going on as it happens whereas like if there was no pandemic, they were in the office, it'd be most of them would be watching this remember park. I guess the other question is, do you have a sense of how many people? ARE THAT UPSET BECAUSE They don't seem to be having huge impact. So it's interesting. FACEBOOK has these internal surveys. One of the questions in there as you think, facebook is making the world a better place. Right after the company did not take down the infamous looting shooting post from Donald Trump, you saw like twenty, twenty, five percentage point drop. That is facebook's data showing their employees are. Not Believing in that mission anymore at least or at least this one incident caused leave not mission. Would you say they have a chance at making that internal change. One of the things here that people have to realize that the power lies in the hands of Mark Zuckerberg he. Has Decision Making power because he made maintains majority voting control over the company. We look back at the walkout, for example, at the beginning of June in the company released a statement and said like we hear you kind of thing but like. Mark Zuckerberg really do anything to change how the company operates think so in like. It's up to him basically, what happens on the platform Ryan Mack is a senior tech reporter at buzzfeed.

Inland West Coast Roadtrips

"If, you're ready for a memorable road trip where there's more to explore the freeway rest stops Chandler O'Leary wants to take you up the US west coast. She joined us a few months ago with tips for driving the Pacific. Coast highway from San Diego to big Sur, the redwoods and the Pacific northwest rainforest. She's back to recommend a few of the inland highlights from the desert playground palm springs through the orchards. California's Central Valley, old western Sacramento, and all the way up to my home turf around Seattle the detailed in her book the Best Post, a road trip Alice Chandler welcome back. Thank you for having me. So we talked about the coastal route before now we're GonNa talk about the inland. Route make a case for not taking the coastal route because I would think everybody wants to go up the coast, but you make the inland sound pretty good. I feel like if you like your vintage, Americana this the road trip for you and yeah, you're not gonna see the coasts until you get all the way up to Washington but if you're really into things like palm springs and mid, century architecture old neon signs, a roadside attractions, you're going to get tons of that on this route. I love roadside attractions, publicity stunts from fifty of your. What are few of those that come to mind because I just think they're so funky. The giant oranges that used to be Oliver California and there's a couple of them left and they were they to be drink stands for you know when you were thirsty on the road, you get fresh California orange juice right and they're still a couple of them left along old either farm. There's farm country all the way along the way absolutely all three states. So we're going sixteen hundred miles and apparently it's the old isn't isn't like the highway ninety nine is of it is yeah and in California highway. Ninety nine mostly is still intact and it's even a freeway in some places, but once you get into Oregon and Washington because of the mountains, it starts getting a little bit tricky kind of pick. Cherry pick sections of the old road and then connect with I five. Yes. It's just like route sixty six how it's kind of been swallowed up by interstate in places like five is it's sort of the enemy on the other hand. It's practical because he gets you from A to B in a hurry. Yeah. What's your philosophy you're gonna go from going basically from San Diego to Bellingham Right What's your philosophy on the balance between I five in the old roads I think you wanna use I five when you WanNa, make good time and take the old rose if you wanna have a good time. That's kind of how I look at it good time or have a good time. That's good. So let's talk about California first of all New Mexico on one side of the border and collection collects. It collects co is on the or is on the California side and Mexico on the Mexico side. So that's where a route starts are these kind of sister towns in away or are unfortunately there's a big old wall separate him so you Or now you have to go through the big international the big national checkpoint because I did that between San Diego and Tijuana was easy just walk across I think right now that's not the same as it used to be, but it may be again I mean who who knows what we're starting in Calexico then What's the flavor of collects goes? That's just a springboard or anything to do there. It's a sleepy small town and but it's kind of you kind of get the flavor of where you're starting and you're going to start out in the low desert. You're below sea level here that's below civil come into palm springs. A waste. It is palm springs to us. Palm Springs is is kind of Wacky. It got big in the nineteen fifties. So there's a lot of great mid century architecture there, but it's very glamorous. It's very glitzy. There's a lot of designers their fashion show was movie stars that doesn't retirement communities to. snowbirds it's kind of this weird mix of college spring breakers and snowbirds. Okay. So you put that in your checklist and then some I know in your book, you talk about a lot of worthy detours you know in one of your favorites would be Joshua Tree National Park. Yes. Joshua tree is stunning and Joshua tree trees actually the high desert. So it's above palm springs at altitude. So it has a completely different desert climate different plants, different animals. So Joshua Tree is one of these cartoon book yeah. Of Justice Joshua Tree is these classic kind of quintessential cactus Yes. Yes. So what do you do in Joshua Tree National Park Jessica cactus there's a great hikes. There's actually only those cactus in one small part of the park is an enormous park. So there's different bombs great rock formations they are beautiful scenery and

"Everyone welcome to radio. This is Doug Hey and today I'm joined by my good good buddy who is so nice to talk to you sit Garza Helmet said welcome back to the podcast. Doug Nice to be here and thank you for having me on. It. was that was that was that to professional? No wonder. Out He's like, I don't want to be around that kind of anyway. Thank you so much for for for serious is always good to talk to you. Yeah same to you and. Say That anyone who is a longtime listener of the pod or follower up athlete knows exactly who you are. But you know who is said Garza Hohmann who who are you, and why should people pay any attention to what you have to say? Why don't know about the second question but the first question is that I'm. Well. Nutritionists running coach Author of two books and another one that I just finished. It's not out yet. PODCAST Vlogger I direct an ultra marathon. And I run a wellness center at at the Stanford in a nutritionist there and. father husband. That's that pretty much sums it all up. Yeah. You know our other things. That's a lot I do a lot of stuff which is i. think partly of what we're GonNa talk about today, but we'll see where that goes. Yeah I I was so disappointed in this year, we also come back out for the race would have been my. Third Time coming for the senior Costa Fifty K. which is. Without a doubt, my favorite ultra-marathon off there ever is Martin was or will be. I. Guess I can't say that definitively about I, I, can I mean there will never be a better race video It's such a cool race rents along the coast of the Mendocino coast like Northern California cliffs just absolutely stunningly beautiful and then through the redwoods and along this big river out of there, it's such a cool that and. But of course, like everything else it was canceled this year and I was sorry to Miss Miss that option is here. Yeah, I was I was a late hold out like we were getting the news about you know. Groups of fifty sounds like okay. I can do that because all space my runners out Mr groups of twenty five probably can do that. You know, and then finally it was a group of ten and I was like okay and I had to pull the plug and it was really. I took it way harder than thought it would take it. I was very bombed Tanaka the race and. It's come for some reason. The last couple of weeks I think I'm trying to nail down next year's date and everybody who signed up to have a free. You know they have a free entry into next. You basically postponed the race a year essentially, but I'm like drinking coffee out of my Mendocino Coast Fifty K. last few days I've been wearing the hat like. Just around surrounding myself with all things Mendocino. Miss you so much. You know it's It's such a fun. It's like the it's such a thing I look forward to every year and to not have it this year amongst every amidst everything else was just really a bummer. Yeah what what do you think was the most? Disappointing part about if you just about the about the race by cancelling. Yeah. Just because I love the it's such as you know for anybody who's run it they know but I keep the number on purpose. You know have quite a big wait list actually but I, keep the number very tight at one hundred fifty. Because it's really intimate fun and it's become would have been in its fifth year, but there's a lot of returners. So it becomes this thing where it's almost familial. You out there there's traditions that are being built now around the race 'cause it's now it's not in its first year now in its would have been in its fifth and so it's it's a new race but you can sort of see the establishment of traditions in and just seeing people again for the you know that one time per year and it's just it's just I greet everybody when they come. Across the finish line because I keep the numbers manageable and it's just it's just this fun. Fully positive no negative day and even people who drop I've never had a negative person. They always come back and I go I. Miss a stupid thing. You know they get a beer and they walk over to the beach you know like it just so it's all good and I've knock on Wood I've never had. A bad experience around. So it's just it's just a fun thing for me to do. It is a good addition to altering community. Thank you for putting that on. Yeah, my pleasure. All. Right. So we'RE NOT GONNA be talking about the racer. We're not even going to be talking about today we're talking about a productivity and kind of staying focused in the age of that I. Know I have I've worked from home for a long time and you've partially worked from home for a while and so I'm used to this whole working from home thing. But I'm hearing increasingly more from people who from friends and family and stuff who are getting growing increasingly frustrated with the work from home experience and. They're having they're having trouble with productivity. You're having focused missing You know their friends at work and their colleagues and and so even though we're wet like five months into this whole thing and most people are still working from home. We. Thought it'd be good to talk about productivity and to talk about. You know just kind of waste to stay focused and and be efficient but we're doing it in the framework of small steps because you're like the small stuff guy, you might be the og small sips guy. I don't know what are small steps. I'm pretty I'm pretty Oh, Jeez most. Well, my small steps are from most other small steps. So I'm there are people out there talking about micro steps, break everything into two minutes my specific approaches to train people how to set their own well. I'll put this way a small step for me as an is the mindset it's what you view something as small step. So it's not a fixed amount of time in the world. It's just for you if it's a small

"I had an opportunity to fly a GRUMMIN. This is an airplane that I've never flown before. Or if I did. It was like one hour fifteen or twenty years ago So it was interesting to sort of approach. The process and I was doing it. With Steve Randell Redwood bus driver here at thermal airport and it was funny because Steve used to be a ferry pilot that is. He's to take airplanes from Europe to the United States back to Europe across the North Atlantic. flying all sorts of different makes and models and when? Steve asked me if I wanted to come. The grandma and my first question to him was yeah. That's that's awesome. What kind of engine does it have? He tells me it's a lycoming three twenty so immediately. I know a lot about the airplane and engine familiar with Doesn't require call labs hundred sixty horsepower. Usually you know. I know I can operate that engine. I essentially know how it's going to perform and The next day we go to fly the plane and and at least that component of it. I'm very familiar with and it was funny. Because AS WE'RE TAXING OUT. Steve the comment you know if if you know the engine airplane and I thought it was really great validation to hear a ferry pilots. Say That somebody WHO's used to jumping in and out of so many different airplanes so as you transition from an airplane. You know to win that you don't. Here's a couple of thoughts one is like. We just said no the engine if it may be flown that engine. There's only a certain number of aircraft engines out there and up in circulation so it's possible even probable that you've seen that engines somewhere else. The second thing read the pilot's operating handbook cover to cover. I'll never forget flight lesson. I had with a guy named Don styles is to get checked out in a Moonie. This is probably ten years ago and I more than ten years ago at this point and I walked in and Dan said did you read the Ph. And I said yeah he said. Did you read it? Cover to cover every page and I said well I've read most of it. You know I I. I kind of skimmed over the emergencies and I looked at the systems. He kind of stopped me right there and said all right. Let's let's do this and we walked through that book. I mean. We walked through that book. Page after page after page for probably four hours. That was the entire first lesson in the checkout and I paid don for his time there. It was maybe an extreme sort of point. He was trying to make but I learned a lot that day and not just about the Mooney. I learned that. Yes when you show up to get checked out in an airplane. It is not unreasonable or unrealistic. For the I to think that you would have read the Peo- H. Cover to cover the second thing I learned. You'll learn a lot when you do that. I mean really. It's not a huge book. It's the old Glen p Wass general limitations. Emergency Normal for Mints Weight and Balance. And all that sort of stuff right. There's a little format to it. It's one hundred and some pages. Maybe maybe maybe not quite that much but definitely worth the four or five hours. It's going to take you to sit there and go through it. Page by page you will absolutely walk away knowing far more about that airplane than you ever thought possible or certainly than you ever would have. Had you not done that? So checking out in a new airplane. Make sure that you've gone over the PH cover to cover. If you know the engine there you go. You've got some experience in the aircraft and then when you finally go for your checkout flight your with your instructor or your with pilot that's familiar. My belief is every problem in an airplane can be solved by knowing where to look and when to look there so the minute you sit down in that airplane Start to get familiar with those visual references. While you're taxing make sure that you're trying to find the reference that indicates whether or not you are not on the centerline before you even leave the the tide area before the engine's running you might WanNa have your instructor or the pilot. You're flying with sort of down on the on the empty nausea and lift the nose so that you can get a feel for what the airplane will look like in the landing flare but the idea is that from the minute you sit down in that aircraft you are looking for visual reference points that will give you the information you need about the angle of attack of the airplane and the alignment of the airplane along the runway and whether you are not on the centerline a couple of other things you might want to consider are getting used to coordination so slow the airplane way down and do some fast rolling and see if get a feel for how the rudder works is it a is it a heavy push like it sometimes is in town or is it a nice gentle push like you get in a DA forty and finally when you come in to land. Maybe your first landing isn't a landing at all. Maybe your first landing is a go-round get a feel for how the airplane accepts the power application. What it feels like as the flaps retract if there are flaps and how quickly the airplane is able to climb away from the ground. If you're flying something like you add power and boom. That thing is airborne in other airplanes. Like one fifty. Arab at Texas Tail. Drager for example. You're stuck on the ground for a few seconds there before the airplane is ready to fly again so knowing this stuff can can be figured out to some extent by doing low altitude. Go Round

"That's it the credits roll. Yeah and this was really really well done. Yes yeah I did at the very beginning I did at the beginning and it took me a little while to figure out why I was feeling this way I was like Kinda slow in places like I liked it overall. But it's still kinda slow places because the last like six movies that we wash while we're watching them and taking notes of had to be furiously typing the whole time the true stuff going on and I didn't have to be furiously typing the whole time on this because it wasn't paste that way you know what I mean we'll know We didn't have a but I feel like the the pacing was appropriate. It was just me reacting to having to furiously take notes. Well here's thing so You know looking for the sound quotes. Rog. GotTa jump ahead young bed do all this stuff But I realized doing that night. I told you Thirty six minutes into the film. We are already at Redwood House. Yeah the murder house. Everybody's in there in the last two ladies. Are there thirty six minutes? Yeah Right. That's not a long time. You know and so I understand what you're saying but yeah because it wasn't a lot of elaborate setup we it. This is the kind of thing that that I did. You know one of the points that we may talk about was the the art of simple story once again right here. It is Let you finish. Your thoughts. Here won't won't come back to that. Well I it was the I mean my nose just kind of like overall I think if you you WanNa get Gore fast this is gonna hit those buttons. There was a lot of Gore. A lot of blood is very satisfying And if the Aleph practical effects and there are a lot of really good practical effects than here That you know if I do them I would be super proud of them. Think they're really good. Oh and that mask is easily the best killer mask. I've seen like ever absolutely ever ever well speaking of that mask Let's talk about that. I let before we get in trouble So as I had mentioned I've been chatting back and forth with David David Keith and When when we were talking about the stuff and the movie in this We had talked about how you know. That mask was a fucking attention getter. Yeah and it was super creepy and you know what people should buy it. So I wrote or responded back to him in one of our exchanges said. Oh yeah by the way my wife and I were talking tell you what if you could merchandise that fucking mask man? All my God well come to find out. They didn't make the mask right He purchased it. How this got passed us this long. I have no idea so. He sent me the information. this is You can buy this mask and a bunch of other. Sauna this exact. That's exact one for this. Maybe was modified version. You can buy the base model of this round. The Guy who makes these makes X. number of masks. But for extra money he will customize them or you which is probably four filmmakers on his website. He has a couple of films listed where his masks have been featured one of which Redwood Bhaskar So it's a grim stitch factory. Yes is the gentleman who makes these masks by hand. Yeah.

"Being at this house right so they do find Ale gruesomely mangled dead Fox and get a little freaked out. Yes well they smell it. I Yeah Yeah it's it's pretty good. It's really thick but it's it's very gory yes We cut back to Bruce. Who's working on his escape when he finds a big box in a hallway and as he's just check it out. Here's some noises coming from it and We see scarecrow kind of storming through the door and we think Oh but Bruce's gone right. Yeah But he left the axe yup drops it on the ground yeah and the killer takes it and then opens the box and we hear long squishy noises right and we see Bruce on the other side of the wall so he quickly ducked back there so after lots of squishy noise is in the box. The killer kind of storms off and Bruce comes out and looks in the box and it's the girl from the beginning of the movie. Yes so the gut wound. Yeah who I was pretty sure it was dead but I guess not. That doesn't matter because she's I sure dead now and can I just say because it's the little things in all the movies that we watch of any kind. That just really either tickle me or just you know resonate with me like in attack of the tatty. Bogle when he walks behind the cars trying to get it off tickled the shit out of me because it's just like like I said he's going from one to the other in a grocery store like a got something to do. What's he doing it? But in this one the way he picked up the axe was like almost parental fucking kids. You know drop the shit all over the place. It truly looked like it just in body language like it wasn't annoyance got down. You know took it out on that poor woman in the box. That's something that's actually really well done and I didn't write anything down about it but in this movie the body language of the killer. Whoever was playing. How are the people that were playing him? If it was more than one person look teddy greatness to be six people was wonderfully done right because you can't see his face he's not expressive. No and as very you can see very little of his is. Yeah through the the depth of the mask and not enough to even register performance. Rank see there is an I. Yeah I just want to back up a bit. We do know it was one guy. Yeah 'cause I believe in the credits. He was listed as evil. Highlander okay because there was no killer or anything Sony I just wanted to make that clear sharp but yeah his body. Language was phenomenal. Yeah but that one is just like they did know that throughout the movie that you know you know later on. He sees me really exasperated by some stuff. Going on like it should be easier than this since crisis is fucking ridiculous. What's a guy? GotTa do to murder some be. I know and we've seen him a number of times and I still can't get over. How cool that mask is every time I see it. I'm just like that's cool. I know a circle But at this weight versus all through this barn. He's been like room to room to room to room to room to room. Yes now is like this is some wildly Labyrinthine Barn. Yes but that's a horror movie thing it is but I mean the other thing too. This was a location. It was an. It's funny because later in the movie we see the outside and I'm like oh it really is that just like crazy. Everything is connected somehow right from the from the house. Bit Right when when Dino Dino woman in it yeah arrives We don't see it part of as part of L. Complex farm complex and I do know because I was thinking about it. There are we. We have seen this many many times in other types of other genres of film. These barns will have you know because it's it's an you know there's not a lot of flat. Land debris sprawling complexes when they build it in the countryside. So it will be go in here is like a split level and then it's down and have the exposed cellar and stuff but then they'll have you know the stalls for the big cattle had stalls for the sheep of just all this stuff so it did make sense well and I think in especially in areas where it does get cold like Scotland in even up here of scene where they connect barnes together to conserve on heat and also because as a farmer. You don't WanNa like go outside. Go outside go outside go outside. It's a lot easier to through connecting will and you need to move your your your livestock around. Yeah whether it's it's cows you know sheep whatever Sometimes you have to move them. I mean the have them separated in the groups that they do for reasons. And sometimes you have to take one from the next and you know what's better than digest through little tunnel right that's built between the Barnes rather than you know. Throw those doors open. Go through six and a half feet of snow in the winter. Yeah yeah it makes sense but I was like. This is crazy conflicts. This barn system has been all through here and he can't find a way out what is going on. So he bruce into killer of playing hide and seek for awhile and versus pretty good at it. Honestly he He comes close to winning the record for longest evasion in a confined space in horror film. Yeah he was. Yeah he was doing a top notch job. He is doing well which which speaks to something. If I may Real quickly this is not a sixth cents killer now right. This is not one of those like we talked about Friday the thirteenth. How Jason Evolved from a dead eleven year old to a full grown hulking man with a multi face in a BURLAP MASK. That was nowhere near this school leader hockey mask and then his hockey mask. And then this undamaged thing who walks slower than our daughter against base Jason Will Forget Space Jason Space Jason. But the thing is as he always knew everyone was he never ran right right he just like any walk slower than Lily. Boom and then after the person he's chasing who's running full speed for two three hundred yards. He standing there waiting form. Yeah Yeah Yeah No burlap mask. He worked it. Yeah and Yeah. There were some moments re like. Oh boroughs. Yeah Oh backed.

"Many of us are feeling a distance between our art in our daily lives. In my case for example. I'm not spending time with other photographers this week. I should be in the Humboldt redwoods with a bunch of you taking pictures and looking at them and talking about technique and all that good stuff. I'm not. I'm here in Santa Rosa. I'm not traveling. I'm not being hired to take pictures you know. It's really a different situation now. Your particular variables might be a bit different than mine. But I bet you're having many at the same feelings. So what do we do? What do we do about this brand off? The top of my head of choices. We have so first of all we could you know just roll over and die and I don't mean I don't mean physically die. I mean artistically die. Just say you know what That was fun now. It's over. This is the new world and a well as you may have figured out by now. That is not the path that I'm taking nor the one that I'm recommending okay. Here's what I think. We should look for the opportunities within the situation. Tried to capitalize on them and then move forward to. Here's the cool thing. Whatever we do now while we're constrained physically we're not constrained artistically. I'll get to that in a minute. We're not constraints so much artistically as we are physically physical of all the limitations I think is easiest to overcome. Unless you're like locked in a box which were not. It's the easiest overcome I I would take it any day over mental imitation emotional limitation spiritual limitation. I'll take you know being sort of trapped in my studio or trapped in my house over those other constraints so I have Internet. I have my tools at the moment. I have food on the table as a moment. The mortgage is paid. I don't know about next month but we'll deal with next month when it gets here. So what I'm thinking is all right. Let's take a look at five ideas that we could play with during this time of physical limitation in. See what we can come up with. Because here's what happens if we come up with something now then if the world starts to come back to some other kind of normal that involves US actually being able to hang out with each other or go somewhere on an airplane or do a number of things like that then we already know how to do that and then we have whatever we've accomplished during this time and then we'll have both and then what if we can intermingle both into something completely new all right. You see where I'm going here. Let's take a look at some of these things that we can do during this time of internment right number one more self assignments because just because we don't have the physical freedom that we once enjoy. That doesn't mean were confined creatively. We can explore how to stir those embers. Bhai creating self assignments and seeing them through and seeing them through very important. Because if we're successful we'll not only enjoy the fruits of our efforts. Whatever that assignment was. We will have a level of self satisfaction for the accomplishment. And I think this is really important. I think setting goals. That can be accomplished right now. Are Super Important. Because I'll tell you there are days that I get up and they sort of you know. Look at my life and just talking about you know my creative life my working life right now my financial life all those are mixed together. There are days I get up and I look at that and I'm bummed. I am bombed. I just go. How man this is so hard. This is truly difficult and then I'll just go ahead and get to it. Start trying to do one thing and then trying to do the next trying to do something new. You know all that kind of stuff and then I will have a little success. Someone will sign up for a course. Someone will buy a very expensive camera. Someone will do something that sort of puts a little energy into the day and then I get a little momentum and then suddenly I start having more ideas and then I get my energy going. Self assignments can help us in that same way that we set something up that we can accomplish that is worthy of being accomplished. Not only do we have the thing but we get the feeling that goes with it and right now. I think that feeling that feeling good that feeling like I can move forward that I can do something under these conditions. I think that feeling is super important. Because that's what moves us to the next spot. Okay so self assignments. I think are a great way to do that. And they can be anything you can work on for instance assignment for a lot of folks right now. they're just wrapping up digitizing memories.

"Of the technology. For instance. How much code you can ship to embed within a lambda function. So if you have a huge back end you might at some point reached those limits and with no D- being the way that note is and packages being the way that packages are and PM. You could you end up adding quite a bit code. Even when you're you're trying to do simple things right. So the goal there though is in the long-term that you'll always be able to ship to lambda functions. And so if you deploy through Netla fi which is sort of the preferred way to deploy redwood up right. Now you deploy to nullify they will deploy the your functions for your graph you'll function for you automatically like you don't have to touch. Aws at all just happens automatic. Just one function right like. That's something that I think. Is that something people talk about a lot when you're talking about server listen graphics. There's this one piece of. It is kind of a little bit in conflict with what people are trying to do with service and a lot of ways. We're trying to just ship these small functions. That just do one thing so you can kind of deploy them separately. Keep them small but the whole very nature of Graft Q. L. A. B. I is that it's one entry point to sort of everything so you have to just deployed altogether. Yeah it's it's abusing lambda. Maybe a little bit outside of what their original intention was just airport and we have to find ways to use it. That were never intended. And that's what makes you know. We're we're hackers and so we look at the technology that's available and we say what could we do with this? That would work and be awesome. And we say okay. We'll either nothing that would stop you from deploying a full graph. Qa Pi to a lambda function restrictions. Today but if we could make redwood popular and this use case becomes really common but then people start hitting file size limits for instance on how much code you can. You can put up to a lambda function right. Now at the restriction is not like horrible right now but you will hit eventually then we can go to. Aws We know people over there and have a conversation with them about. How can we make this use case work more fluidly in in the system or you have other vendors that start up and say we know that you want to run your graph? Api in a civilised way in a globally distributed way but lamm does not really doing it. What if we just had a system that was like lambda but was more designed specifically to run graphic? Ps right like you could imagine that existing so Or you know you can always do yourself on regular service to we. Don't have the Plymouth stuff set up for that quite yet. I mean as long as you can run a graph curiel. Api then you can run. You can run this and the other nice thing about. The architecture redwood is in the very long term like think out ten years for a company. You'll say you start your company. Using Redwood think out ten years companies start optimizing everything that they can everything that they need to so imagine at some point they say well note is great and all but our needs have some specific requirement for performance or integration with some external system or whatever and they could say we're gonNA start writing parts of API in some other language. Some other system read doesn't Care Redwood Front. It doesn't care because it's just so this this very specific decoupling of the front end and the back end. You experienced some friction. There is friction there as anyone who's graph before knows that it's not it's not all rainbows in kittens all the time like there are challenges there and to me the real benefit of having graft you'll as the mediator between the front and the back end is long term maintainability and options down the road and and the the sort of the tertiary benefit that when you think about your coat in that way when you think about your front end your back completely decouple and mediated by a well-defined. Api It makes you think better about your code so talking about rails building a large monolithic rails application with very little advice on how to organize your code. You can get into trouble pretty fast and I always do. I like to think that I'm a pretty good programmer. But I mean I I run into these problems all the time especially when you're starting with an idea and you have something up and then you get some attention and then you keep going and this is how most startups are right. You're not going to start by writing the most beautiful maintainable code ever but if your framework can really try to encourage you down the right path of organization and how you think about your code and especially Your Business Logic than I think the framework can actually help you write more maintainable code from the beginning and for Redwood that starts with thinking about your back end as an API and not as just a bunch of code that you're GonNa slap together that your friends GonNa run. It requires more disciplined. But it's not a ton more discipline. It's a little bit more discipline starting out. But the long term benefits I think can be very large and so redwood tries to give you a a directory structure and we're only at the beginning of this of this road as well but to me giving you this idea that you have services so we call them services so your graph to La. Pi is comprised of several services. And when I say service I mean that in a in a sort of business logic way so you. Let's say you have a a system where you let's say you have? I don't know kind of a four..

"redwood" Discussed on Full Stack Radio

"This is full stack radio episode one thirty eight so the reason that I wanted to have you on. The show is a win this maybe a month ago. Maybe not even a month ago You into the team that you've been working with recently announced Redwood J s which from the outside looks like an attempt to to kind of build the full stack sort of no. Gps javascript driven framework. That everyone's kind of been wanting for years the thing that all the rails developers have been complaining about that didn't exist in in node land And from the looks of it looks like you've got sort of a pretty interesting take on it so I'm really curious to learn more about redwood. Gs absolutely yes. So Redwood Jaaz is indeed an attempt to build a full stack framework for Java script and to really deploy it in a service way. So that's one of the primary tenants that we have is build it end to end with Javascript and deployed to server list environment. To give you the advantages of the scale that that can bring as well as the global distribution that that can bring so one thing that we say about redwood is that its edges ready and by that we mean all of the different parts of redwood should be able to operate on the edge once technology plays out a little bit more. This is not entirely true today. But really we're building redwood today with an eye to the future so redwood is not yet fully realized but the idea is that if we start today with the idea that some of these technologies will exist in the way that we want them to in say a year. Then we'll be there when the technology is ready instead of technology existing first and then coming in and saying Oh let's take advantage of this and then it takes another year or more to built for it. It's like the way that game. Programmers build their games for the hardware that will exist. Yeah when they release. We're doing the same thing but with web technologies supplying some bets that Some of the tooling that you kind of need to kind of make this thing work the way you you believe has. The potential to work are going to exist You know in the near Ish Future. Yeah absolutely and so I. I can dive into those just real quick to go over them. So as hard as the edge readiness goes so the whole point redwood really is to take advantage of GM stack architecture. And so you start with the client which ends up being a react based javascript client that can be delivered statically so before we even like go even further there. I think it'd be interesting to kind of touch on some of these kind of different layers of the stack because he get through and figure out what the opinions are I think even before he talking about the react client. I'm I think a lot of people have sort of a different definition of Jim Stack or different picture in their head of what it means so when you say stack like how do you define that. And what is what is it. And what is it not in your mind? Yeah so I use the term jam stack. Maybe a little bit more loosely than most people today. But it's a bit on purpose. Purposefully trying to push the boundaries of what would be considered gem stack while still being true to the definition so jam stack javascript. Api's markup that's can cover a lot of territory but it really comes with the deployment strategy as well so a big part of the jam stack is the idea that you can push your code to a git repository and that will trigger deploy. And you're basically done and so that's part of Redwood that same idea the same way that you would build a traditionally considered jam stack application today where it's content faced and maybe you're you have a built step and then you push that aesthetic content to a cdn and with Netla fi and others you can have functions. That'll be spun. Up for you redwood operates in exactly that that space and so by Jim Stack. I mean you have Java script that is your primary it flips a little bit. Maybe the J. M. in in aesthetic content based site you're probably going to have mostly static markup and then you're gonNA sprinkle in Java script to interact with Third Party. Api is or maybe an API that you've written yourself in the redwood version of Jam Stack. Which is really the same tall just jam. Stack. You might have more or less of each one of those components so in Redwood you have more javascript so your your front ends up being all react. So it's page APP and you're mark probably ends up being minimal. Though the idea is that you can do pre rendering and have pages. So let's say you're marketing pages or other content pages that are that are suitable for pre rendering that you have a bill phase to do that and then you can push those out like you would in a more traditional jam stack APP Today and the. Api is baked in as part of this stack in that. You're you're going to write your API it would be. It would be a reason that you would choose to use. Redwood is the full integration throughout the stack to use the all of the fancy stuff really nicely integrated really great developer experience that we're producing four the back end as well and this is. This is another difference from a more of a content related. Jim Koch So in my mind what I'm hearing is it sounds like it's like a Jam Saqi framework designed for People Building Bespoke web applications where they need to write a lot of their own custom backend code and they need a place to do that. That hopefully has some opinions and conventions that let's do it in a more productive way maybe like we typically been used to something like rails. Yeah exactly so. We see it as a rails replacement. Yeah Very Cool. Anything you would normally do with rails. We hope that you'll be able to do with redwood the that's the competitor. Is that really the full end to end? Full stack tightly. Integrated includes everything testing like all like the whole database access. Like the whole thing end to end is just use. This stuff used these sorts of technologies together. We've integrated them beautifully. We've created a deployment paradigm that scales very easily and requires almost no intervention and is Java scripts and awesome. So I think maybe if we wanted to just start with the front end. I'm curious to know how sort of bespoke your kind of client side story is like. Do you have your own. Basically framework built on top react with a custom routing and stuff like that or is it like basically create react APP and read wouldn't takes care of the interactions the API stuff more than that or How does it compare to something like xjs for example? So how much sort of redwood specific custom stuff is going on in the front end Side of things yeah. It's fairly custom on the front end so it does not descend it all from create react APP. So there's there's no I mean it might have some structural similarities in different ways and like how you create the initial files on your disk uses the same system that create racked up does spilt into two NPR. How does that but besides that it uses sort of very fundamental building blocks so react obviously and we've written our own router mainly because for me. It's this whole exercise. A big part of this exercise is about developer experience and so I want things to work in a specific way. And there's some really amazing routers out there and the the notion to write your own router seems maybe a little absurd from you know when you look at it at first blush but so we started with react router and I think we try to reach router but we just ran into structural differences that we wanted for redwood that weren't available in either of those or any other ones that we saw and so it was. I sat down and I wrote an experiment to see if I could whip something up. That would behave in the way that I wanted it to. And a big part of it is just the ability to have control over it so this is always a question when you're building a framework out of existing parts which we have we reuse of existing stuff. It's not you know from whole cloth the way that that some alternatives are. And that's on purpose. We wanted to start with a set of technologies. That was familiar for people to make adoption much much easier. You starting to see some alternatives. Now that are very alien in the sort of the not even Java scrip- related but things like dark language are super interesting. And I think there's always room for a complete rethink of how we program but I think it's hard it's super super hard like making that big leap from a whole stack and everything that used today saying abandoned literally everything that you've ever known including your editor including your language including your deployment paradigm if you have to throw all that stuff away at once. It's super hard for people to choose. And so what I wanted was to Coda fi and standardize the types of things that we were already doing and just remove choice and remove friction and just give people the ability to sit down and say all right. I know these technologies already. Have the prerequisite knowledge to do this. I Know Graph Q. L. I know react I know sequel and I have an idea for an application and I'm probably going to. It's going to be a website and it's probably going to have some other clients probably an android APP and iphone happened. Maybe it has. Desktop client has Cli who knows but whatever clients I want in the future redwoods ready for them and now I can just sit down and start creating my wreck components and my API and get to my just start writing business logic. Just start creating the out. Yes what I've what I've experienced and what I know. Many people have experienced learning react and getting into this is the path right now is very very very very very long and hard horrible and it's just too much. There's too many. There's too many things. There's too many ways to everything nothing is integrated well. Yeah and that's I think what's exciting about trying to tackle that problem. I feel like in the in the full stack javascript world. That problem has basically been tackled for a long time. There's a few tools out there that have tried but it doesn't seem like anything is really gained enough market share to be seen as like you know as a rails you know what I mean in the script ecosystem so you mentioned that you have put together your own. Router for what Redwood and that. They're you know some reasons for that. Is there anything specific that you can speak to that? Were opinions that you kind of wanted to do differently like then the existing tools or is it really more about just. This is a really crucial piece of the framework. If we don't own it that's risk Basically you know yeah. I think it was mostly driven by a few technical things that we wanted to do. Nfl technical things that we didn't want to do one of them is our intention. Is then you have a single routing file in the same way that you do in rails yep generally unless you have a super huge avenue and kind of split it up into a couple but one place that you put routes verses the sort of the nested routing behavior that you find today in kind of the main routers. I don't love that. It's a level of complexity that I don't think it's necessary. There's some technical challenges with that as far as layouts and and when you make page changes it's going to try to render a layout. So there's there's certain things that we need to work through that as performance as possible but I love the idea of just having a single router file where you can easily tracked down the thing that you're looking for right so. A lot of redwood comes from frustrations with rails which many many yeah so. I'm actually curious to dive into that as we go because that is where a lot of my experiences as well so I liked that we sort of have that common ground in that perspective. Because I do think there's a lot of people building pure javascript apps today that kind of arrived there from a different path. And sometimes I feel like I can't connect with those people as easily so it's nice to be able to like look back and compare to something that we share. So yeah anything that you wanted to say about that. That'd be super interested to here. Yeah well so I'll I'll finish my thoughts on the router. So we wanted to a single place that you could do routing and this is specifically because I love in rails that you can generally say here's a url on the screen and you're fixing a bug or something. You WanNa change some component on the screen. Here's the URL. Let me go figure out what that code is. That's running and that to me has to be easy like if you're framework doesn't make that easy then you're you've already lost you can't like you. There is no return from making that hard and so the nested routing to me makes that hard and so I want to if at all possible make it completely flat so that it's just a single set of routes. They're in order. Whichever one you satisfy I wins and sends you to a component. That's page that represents a page that to me is is the ultimate in simplicity and makes it easy to maintain like I am. I'm all about long term maintenance about simplicity and I. I've been reading code long enough. I've been involved.

Tom Preston-Werner: Building Full-Stack JS Apps with Redwood.js

"Jaaz is indeed an attempt to build a full stack framework for Java script and to really deploy it in a service way. So that's one of the primary tenants that we have is build it end to end with Javascript and deployed to server list environment. To give you the advantages of the scale that that can bring as well as the global distribution that that can bring so one thing that we say about redwood is that its edges ready and by that we mean all of the different parts of redwood should be able to operate on the edge once technology plays out a little bit more. This is not entirely true today. But really we're building redwood today with an eye to the future so redwood is not yet fully realized but the idea is that if we start today with the idea that some of these technologies will exist in the way that we want them to in say a year. Then we'll be there when the technology is ready instead of technology existing first and then coming in and saying Oh let's take advantage of this and then it takes another year or more to built for it. It's like the way that game. Programmers build their games for the hardware that will exist. Yeah when they release. We're doing the same thing but with web technologies supplying some bets that Some of the tooling that you kind of need to kind of make this thing work the way you you believe has. The potential to work are going to exist You know in the near Ish Future. Yeah absolutely and so I. I can dive into those just real quick to go over them. So as hard as the edge readiness goes so the whole point redwood really is to take advantage of GM stack architecture. And so you start with the client which ends up being a react based javascript client that can be delivered statically so before we even like go even further there. I think it'd be interesting to kind of touch on some of these kind of different layers of the stack because he get through and figure out what the opinions are I think even before he talking about the react client. I'm I think a lot of people have sort of a different definition of Jim Stack or different picture in their head of what it means so when you say stack like how do you define that. And what is what is it. And what is it not in your mind? Yeah so I use the term jam stack. Maybe a little bit more loosely than most people today. But it's a bit on purpose. Purposefully trying to push the boundaries of what would be considered gem stack while still being true to the definition so jam stack javascript. Api's markup that's can cover a lot of territory but it really comes with the deployment strategy as well so a big part of the jam stack is the idea that you can push your code to a git repository and that will trigger deploy. And you're basically done and so that's part of Redwood that same idea the same way that you would build a traditionally considered jam stack application today where it's content faced and maybe you're you have a built step and then you push that aesthetic content to a cdn and with Netla fi and others you can have functions. That'll be spun. Up for you redwood operates in exactly that that space and so by Jim Stack. I mean you have Java script that is your primary it flips a little bit. Maybe the J. M. in in aesthetic content based site you're probably going to have mostly static markup and then you're gonNA sprinkle in Java script to interact with Third Party. Api is or maybe an API that you've written yourself in the redwood version of Jam Stack. Which is really the same tall just jam. Stack. You might have more or less of each one of those components so in Redwood you have more javascript so your your front ends up being all react. So it's page APP and you're mark probably ends up being minimal. Though the idea is that you can do pre rendering and have pages. So let's say you're marketing pages or other content pages that are that are suitable for pre rendering that you have a bill phase to do that and then you can push those out like you would in a more traditional jam stack APP Today and the. Api is baked in as part of this stack in that. You're you're going to write your API it would be. It would be a reason that you would choose to use. Redwood is the full integration throughout the stack to use the all of the fancy stuff really nicely integrated really great developer experience that we're producing four the back end as well and this is. This is another difference from a more of a content related. Jim Koch So in my mind what I'm hearing is it sounds like it's like a Jam Saqi framework designed for People Building Bespoke web applications where they need to write a lot of their own custom backend code and they need a place to do that. That hopefully has some opinions and conventions that let's do it in a more productive way maybe like we typically been used to something like rails. Yeah exactly so. We see it as a rails replacement. Yeah Very Cool. Anything you would normally do with rails. We hope that you'll be able to do with redwood the that's the competitor. Is that really the full end to end? Full stack tightly. Integrated includes everything testing like all like the whole database access. Like the whole thing end to end is just use. This stuff used these sorts of technologies together. We've integrated them beautifully. We've created a deployment paradigm that scales very easily and requires almost no intervention and is Java scripts and

"My favorite so Brian On a podcast. We talk about our favorite things. We have not told each other their surprises and while this isn't the end of this episode. What we wanted to do is we want to bring you on to this tradition of ours to tell us what our favorite things are and share. Oh yeah and become. I am honored so Brian. What was your favorite part of this trip? Yeah the whole thing Oliver. Oh Jeez well I mean. The Kayak trip was a highlight That might be my favorite part of the trip but I'm going to condense it down even further and say that the rock that we stopped at and jumped off of into the water a very distinct great memories of that one. Mainly because Whitney my now wife took an unexpected freezing cold water get to see it. I just heard her screams. I didn't see it either but I heard the splash. Everyone just turned around and like like right. Yeah yeah she. She parked her kayak trying to step up onto the rock. But Lost her footing and just like jumped back into the water which was great. Yeah I love it But in addition to that we all jumped in which was fun but then Brad surprised everyone with a with a front flip off this huge boulder. Yeah I. It was kind of like a almost like a front wheel. Flip I kinda curved but it was fun. 'cause IN MY MIND. I looked great in this senior leader. I think just great then. I took a video. I looked at the video and my didn't our guide wasn't he like wow. Can we use that for our website? Said something like that. This is how we're going to sell this Kayak trip your rock. Oh well I'll have to forward that video onto him. He's been waiting for a year looking actually wear. That was a great. Those are great part of that. I mean the whole Kayak thing was really really amazing but it was really fun. I remember being like so. Show utterly shocked by how cold the water. I wasn't properly warned our guy did not. He's like shirt jump in. He didn't say like by the way it's deathly cold like you're GONNA you're buying down right. Yeah that's kind of sick pleasure out of seeing experience that yeah. Vr faces after each of us jumped in and like definitely panic. Swam to the Rock. Yeah that was a lot of fun was what was yours. My favorite I think my favorite is probably after this trip. We did this longer. Hike through redwoods. Yes and that was really fun. I don't think you'd like to as much as you're hiking in like water shoes. That was just a miserable time because I didn't have socks on. I had wet water shoes. It was really bad not ideal but because it was love that one. That's one with all the switch backs. Yeah that one had more switch backs up and down? We went through in over. Some creeks the trees in their mind blowing there was just such a like condensed variety of them here. There was so much and it was. I think the longest or one of the longer hikes. We didn't redwood too so those nice they'll spend some quality time Mike in the deep in the woods like this and especially after the CAC trap where I'm like okay. It'd be nice like us. Our legs again. Was that the one the trail that we walk through a hollowed out Red Oak. Yeah Yeah So. We didn't meet. The tree was wide enough and mostly hollow like we're able to crawl throughout the throughout the entire length of it pretty much like there was like caves inside of trees down because they're so the trees are just so huge that you don't realize you could create a home inside of them like at least. I can live in there and just eat hikers lemonade. And make it my home right. I know where I'm at Disney world attractions and Gabe realize about. I Guess Disney's basing it off of something. It's a real life here. Back in that comes comes through like super clear absolutely. I think my favorite thing would actually be like honestly. It wasn't a place it was just the ability to do this trip all together with my family like I love spending time with you guys You know with you know Donald Whitney Emily. Brian Matt Myself. Who is just one of those really awesome times where we get to connect and see each other and just go through it They've and cooked together and Kayak and hike. It was all just about the ability to do it as a family. That was really cool to me. That's a nice Sobriety ultimately at the end of the day. What did you get out of his trim Well I guess a big thing that I got out of this trip was how I mean surprising this country. I guess this world can still be like you. Go to a place like Redwood National Park which you've heard about and you've seen pictures of redwoods but to actually be there and to see these like massive trees that look like they're from. I don't know some giants world in the rings or something is it's humbling. Because you're just this miniscule little thing compared to these huge trees it's just incredible and it just makes you and it makes me curious for to explore as much of the world's that can because this is just a tiny little part of it and you know that there's other stuff like this out there absolutely. Well that's why we keep on traveling to the national parks..

"Just over the river and just over your head you just had a million little like little flies and you could just see them and they hit you and everything but it didn't even matter because it looked like it was gorgeous. It was stunning flies. I remember it. I think I remember it was like this. Activity is like a like a fizzy stuff. The above soda. That's what it felt like. That's exactly what it felt like. Carbonation cloud of flies and it didn't bother us. See a demon bother. You didn't notice that member it yeah. I remember like early on within the first ten minutes of being in a kayaks there was like a little bit of a pile up We hit some not rocks but like some mild rapids. I guess and like Emily was first or sister. I and she kind of like Korean to the side and then I like slammed into her. And then Brad slams into me and you fell off your you. Were not into the water. You really kneeling fell face forward on onto the top of your Kayak. Because you hit me. Oh that drags on my knees trying something. Different trying different stances because it was like an open face. Oh Yeah Right. We'll make it on top of or kneel on top of and that was fun. Yeah it's always great for good. Kayak pile up little car pileup. Yeah I remember that and thinking like well. That's the closest anyone's going to get to falling in on this trip but that was not the case. Yeah right I thought that too soon. Yeah let's talk about that because I was talking with Brad before this about you capsizing. And he didn't remember. I think he was probably too far back in the group but I was right in front of you and I remember hearing it and turn around like Oh. You're you're in the water now. I really think that's when I was posing on Iraq. I hope so I feel like the situation was pretty chaotic. Like whatever was happening there must have been some like light rapids. We're in like didn't emily like throw an article. Iii or jacket up in the air. Something Lost Somebody. Lost an article of clothing and wash. Yes no she did. I remember and dumb and rivers. Somebody found it again. Yeah Yeah I forgot about that. Which was lucky for her. Yeah my my experiences during that time. So it was in light rapids. I don't know I don't exactly know how it happened. I just remember at one point going down this kind of rapidy part of the river. I just like something I must have bumped out of my Kayak and I started like I felt myself slowly like rolling out of a Kayak and falling back into the river. But it happened. It happened incredibly slowly. Slow enough where you think you think that any person doing this would have plenty of time to correct was happening but I just watched like my feet on the Kayak and I just watched them go for higher up into the air until I fell backwards and was completely submerged and yeah and it also made me realize that trying to swim while you're wearing shoes is a strange feeling sticks out of my mind like wow. I don't know if I've ever done this before but yeah it was. It was startling. I've never been tossed. Been Whitewater rafting managed to stay in the Kayak during class four rapids but not during this very tiny. Little turbulent area. I'd like judges out of like one five. It'd probably be like a one point. Five the reason why I fell out of it. I don't know what happened but it did. Yeah I remember guide who is in front. Obviously and he gave us a little bit of a heads up. It's like just casual heads up some mild rapids. You'll be fine but does and then I was like behind him. And then like I hear like slow-motion slash and then the next thing I know you're swimming to shore and yeah and I can only imagine too. I remember how cold that water was because we had all like immediately prior to this been at that big boulder or whatever and we're like taking turns jumping off into the water. So Oh yeah it was called. Yeah was like much colder than I thought it would be. That was that was really fun. Yeah but After we spent a couple minutes on that rock jumping off of it We went over to that trail. And that's where we were introduced hikers lemonade like we were talking about earlier in the episode. What was your favorite part of that trail? I guess well I guess my favorite part of it was being able to just like pick vegetation off the ground and eating it. That's what I remember the most anyway. The hikers lemonade. Looks like these like almost like four leaf clovers just going on the ground and we were told that we could just pick them up and eat them so we did and they taste remarkably like lemonade. Would Yeah I couldn't get enough of I was like stuffing Sam and then twenty four hours later. All of our mouths are broken out poison ivy. The wrong one. Yeah the guy. That's like J K. Yeah Digest this right right now. I know that was that was so good. I can't get over that I remember like because it's very unnatural seemingly as a human being like to be told while you're hiking through the middle of the woods like you know reach down and just eat something going on the forest floor and I'm like I don't I don't do this normally no is this. What foraging is morning Seattle? Love it? I felt like an island animal and it was screened for that. I felt like I could survive out in the woods by my. Yes Yeah I could live here. I could live up. Eat only this mine. Just hikers laminated. Yeah so wish I wish we sold it in stores. Yeah I agree.

"And it gets a nickname hikers lemonade. Because it's edible and refreshing and I think it tastes like lemonade or something tastes. LemMe it did. Yeah absolutely and it was weird. How God because it tastes just like edible lemonade. What is the revelation he had us all? Try it and I remember like my eyes like did one of those cartoon things where they bolted of their head out of my head because I try to. This is amazing so really was like I have a video of you behind me like picking up. The hikers lemonade continually eating along the trail. I was grazing like look like walking through the forest grabbing hikers lemonade by the fistful shoving into my mouth. It was so good it really was. I mean it wasn't a long trail either But it was a beautiful because you know that's one that people just don't go on unless they're kayaking and know about But when we got to the end it was really cool because I remember. He has a circle. Rhonda I WANNA get your picture. And then he turned it to pano mode and went up. The tree line ended a panel picture. I'm like your genius clever and you're working for your tips hunting. And we didn't even tell him to do that did we? Didn't ask for Ramic shot. But he just he just knew that was not his first Rodeo and yeah he because the redwoods can be hard to photograph because they're so tall and it's almost impossible to get them all in one go so very far away you deal and you got to Panorama helps so that was great when we come back after the break we're GonNa bring on our guest.

"Even though they did cut redwoods to make boats in housing they weren't going nuts by desecrating entire forests. No intrigue would make Entree Booth for sure. That goes a long way. And you're using it for necessity like what you what you need. And nothing more but they also had serious respect for these trees all the while like a tribal elder from the local Chai Lula tribe many reeves. She was quoted in nineteen seventy six as saying her people are people from within the Redwood Tree. So there's clearly a deep spiritual connection there and she went on to add a pretty blunt warning saying destroy. These trees destroy the creators love. And if you destroy that which the crater left so much you'll eventually destroy mankind heavy. Yeah definitely needs to be said. Yeah because according to the statement mankind was really just a couple of hundred thousand acres from being destroyed by the Creator. Really pushed to the brink. And that's because massive trees like these eventually caught the attention of lumbermen who basically started using these vast forest as giant. Atm So greedy. It was a salvation effort after gold miners initially flocked to the area but failed to strike it rich that way so they figured they would turn to what they saw the next best thing which was logging the abundant redwoods and considering there were major metropolitan areas developing nearby like San Francisco. There was huge demand for large. Would like this lugging continued for several decades until the nineteen twenties and that's in conservation started to step in This is when the save. The redwoods league created this batch of three state parks which was able to stop the rampant logging. What a great name to save the redwoods league because I'm a vendors or something like tree hugging adventures in. Yeah I I got and since the National Park destination requires so much more red tape in federal finagling not to mention that World War Two was keeping the government pretty busy redwood. National Park. Didn't finally become a thing until nineteen sixty eight and then together this quartet of jointly administered parks which I'm going to go ahead and call the fantastic four of parks. Yes they protect what's left of the coastal redwoods although terrifyingly by this point almost ninety percent of these trees had been logged. It seems sad to see so. Many people didn't see the beauty and the porn forest. They only saw dollar signs. And it's not even just the trees themselves. The forest they comprise are hugely important and protect threatened. Wildlife Steller Sea Lions Chinook Salmon in northern spotted. Owls altogether these ecosystems are so unique geologically important that this part of California was classified as a world heritage site in nineteen eighty in an international biosphere reserve in eighteen eighty three. It's always nice to see a happy ending and when we come back we're going to talk about a road trip to redwood national and state.

"So for some context. I visited these parks as part of a late summer. Family vacation with my dad sister brother and his then fiancee now wife. And if you remember when we talked about that same family trip for Lassen volcanic national park in season. One this redwood trip was the other part of that trip and even better for this part. We're bringing my brother on this special guest later in this episode so super excited to talk to him. That was a fun time. And it's going to be a fun. Chat it absolutely was so redwood was the first part of that vacation which took place in September and started with a day and night in San Francisco. Then the next morning we got up early and drove a rental car up to coach her a few hours to get to this beautiful national park. It's honestly a pretty easy drive. Pretty straightforward made all the easier by how ridiculously scenic. It is at the time this was pre are for us and we were used to road trips through the Midwest and the Chicago area which is mostly pretty boring and flat and monotonous. So I was not prepared for how delightfully entertaining. Just the the drive would be honestly. Yeah even got off the highway and stopped for lunch at some cute diner in Sonoma's which beautiful yeah it. Was this quaint gorgeous. Little Town called Healdsburg which incidentally I had been there for a workshop literally two months before we stopped here for breakfast. The hotel I was staying I was like two blocks away or something from is very diner and I remember being like totally blown away by this coincidence and everyone else in the car was like Oh okay and then had no reaction. I was like okay. That's fine I mean. No one else was on that trip with you So it's hard to relate. Yeah I mean I get it. The the silent reaction was deafening. But the food is really good just like homey. American food with bottomless Mug of coffee. Those really dense ceramic mugs. That you really only find roadside diners. Nowadays favorite kind of place. Yeah we were just like having this diner conversation the other day actually we were because we have very different diner preferences. I think we like different styles of diners. We do. I'm more like the modern kind of sleet contemporary approach in terms of design and like food. I like inventive stuff. Like Lox bagels and things like that things that are like gussied up versions of like Americana Fair I guess yeah. Mine's like two eggs poached Bacon Sausage Righto sputtered and hashbrowns cloud home fries. Don't get mixed up. Don't get me. I'm so easy. I'm so simple when it comes to. I WANNA old school diner like the fun like just but is facebook. Are you shoot? There's some- by my hashbrowns fine. Okay 'cause they don't really do that anymore but I used to do that. I've never done that. Yeah but yeah I hear you so from there from this diner. It's another like four and a half hours north to the national parks. And that's a bit of a drive. But like we said it's supersonic very very pretty so as long as you get an early start from especially relieving from the San Francisco area like we did you make time. Oh Yeah it's really not that far from the Oregon border either. Its way up there. Yeah but the further north. You drive the greener. Everything gets in the midst year things get to. It's all very cinematic and immersive in really does feel like you're gradually disappearing into like a a different universe. Is it like a universe envisioned by Filbert or something? It's like you're going to a movie and I have expected to kind of gradually transform into his character myself or does he a dinosaur leap out from the forest and start chasing down the road. Yeah and then it would like bite off the side mirror of the car while we all screamed in terror exactly and eventually though we didn't see any dinosaurs we saw a lot of bigfoot signs all over the place yeah lots those. This must be like prime big territory because we saw tons of big for like big foot crossing signs bigfoot mornings even like bigfoot themed businesses and cafes and things like that. They're really like on the fictional. Mike bigfoot stuff and I can totally see to. This seems like it would have a setting for a giant mysterious neanderthal anytime I think of bigfoot. Bigfoot from goofy movie remember that scene. I'm almost offended that you even felt the need to ask me that I remember to. Of course I have that movie like memorize scene for scene basically and it was very formative for me in my early years. And if I'm being honest it's still far enough for me now. Like I'm I to learn from that movie and grow with at and that goofy movie. Bigfoot is like my go-to Oh yeah absolutely well. Of course I mean it doesn't get much better than bigfoot He was a gentle giant really He just wanted to listen to headphones and dance. Yeah and maybe like my name goofy and Max had gotten into the car. I the movie never released lanes like what the intent was or what the real threat of bigfoot was because he was trying to break into the car. That's the whole gist. And then Max or like flings the headphones out of the car and they laid on big head and then he just starts to dance. Ann Lewis himself to song and that's when they are you know able to eat spaghetti. I don't know I don't know what happened. I I guess. I don't remember seeing foreseen really spiraling here. I think it just you're nervous But but again this is it really shows cinematic. This part of California's everything either looks like a movie or remind you movie or it is a movie. Yes which is another reason why. I'm so excited to have my brother later for this episode. He's the biggest movie connoisseur right now like by far so I think it'll be interesting to get his insight on on this park trees so contrary to what we might be leading you to believe. This place was not drawn into existence by Disney animators. So the parks that comprise the system include the actual national park portion which was designated in nineteen. Sixty eight along with del. Norte Coast Perry Creek and did it. Is Smith all three of which are state parks? And when they're all combined they contain about one hundred and forty thousand acres of America's most iconic trees and forests most iconic there. I said Yeah. That's a big statement but it really fits America has a lot of iconic trees. But these ones definitely standout. Yeah literally they. They stand way out there. Enormous I think their closest like size-wise trees are sequoias which are also huge. They're wider in the help more volume. But they're not as tall as redwoods. Redwoods definitely grow taller there. The all natural skyscrapers and I would say I would go out and say that redwoods are the sears tower of trees and I know that I know that you and I are biased. Because we're from Chicago. But I still firmly believe that the sears tower is still the most iconic skyscraper in the nation and I refuse to not call it sears tower I know it's technically willpower. But it will always be serious our in my heart. You're one of those I love it. Yeah teams here's all the way And not only are they the tallest trees on earth but there are also some of the oldest some as old as two thousand years old so even though they're not actually the largest by volume or the oldest they're distinctly special and obviously conic especially since they grow to be almost four hundred feet tall. The park service doesn't point out which trees actually the tallest in order to protect it from visitation crowds. But the tallest tree is I believe. Around three hundred seventy nine hundred eighty feet tall in the Redwood Creek watershed called hyperion. I I love the name. It sounds like a superhero. And they grow this bag because of all the constant moisture and precipitation including rain and fog coupled with the regions temperate climate and average temps that range between forty five and sixty one degrees year round. So it's just the most ideal environment for trees of this is plus. Their bark is so thick like two foot thick that it's a great natural defense against forest fires and disease but you're saying twelve inches thick. Yeah twelve thousand. Seven hundred foot thick That's crazy that's my foot. Yes and in case you're wondering how these enormous behemoths aren't constantly toppling over under their own sheer size. That's because their roots reach up to thirteen feet deep in eighty feet long and they'd really they need to be the speaking order to protect against weather and wind and such and just their own like mammoth size. So thirteen fifty. That's more than twice the size of me. Cram or you. That's you and I put together plus an extra foot or to your That's just absolutely insane. How big those are deeply rooted But unfortunately most of these trees have been logged over the years Today the national and state parks protect about forty five percent of all remaining coastal redwood trees which is definitely alarming. Yes yes it is history in the mid eighteen hundreds but it's not even that long in the grand scheme of things. Old Growth Redwood forest covered more than two million acres the northern California coast. Obviously that number has dwindled drastically things to loggers to the point where one hundred and forty thousand acres nearly half of all that remains which is terrible. Yeah yikes yeah in the early eighteen. Hundreds this part of California was home to native Americans with tribes like the Iraq. And the Wyatt peoples who respected The forest and used it and sustainable ways They've been doing it for as long as three thousand years. Absolutely.

"Wherever the rotates you on the iheartradio APP. We compare national parks. Two movies a lot on this podcast. And that's mostly because these places have a larger than life vibe and atmosphere. That truly looks like something out of a film or like something. From another planet that can only be replicated through the magic of Hollywood but no Parkas doesn't much of a cinematic star as one. We're talking about today. Which is Redwood National? Park in California. It's actually officially called Redwood National and state parks and that's unique because this part of coastal North California is a network of numerous state and National Park sites jointly managed by the National Park Service and the State of California. Yes and altogether these soaring. Forests have totally sorted to movie stardom over the years appearing as the backdrop. For some pretty serious blockbusters and I mean it makes sense. These trees are truly otherworldly. What what the sky scraping trees misty beaches and foreign canyons. So I get why. The Redwood forest are like Catnip for movie directors.

"About you know with aging in your parents yourself you know because there's a there's a lot of aging people here that are getting ready to go into retirement and or their parents. I I think probably there are two things people need to know. One is that The average entrance age has moved up considerably in the last ten. To fifteen years. Most people used to move into independent living in their seventies late seventies and into assisted living in their eighties early eighty three eighty four and then if they moved into skilled. They move in the late eighties. All of those have shifted up about five years. So that if you're turning sixty five now you might have a parent that is ready for this. So if you're in your sixties you might WanNa be looking with an eye for yourself but you really probably looking for your parents. And that's because of the blossoming of of options that help people in their homes. Whether you know a I ask every once in a while when I get with a group of you is anybody here ordered from Amazon. And it's almost easier to say. Has Anybody not? You're right because you can get everything you want now. Almost instantly but certainly within a day or two yet and Amazon or all of almost everybody else. Oh people are able to stay where they are now here. Marin people are are older and in better shape than they are in most to California so that might even slide up a little bit from there so a kind of knowing what the typical norms are. And if you know if you have a parent WHO's seventy nine. You might be thinking about five years from now and getting on a list and educating yourself options because five six seven years there the they might want to do that. And if you don't have that option It's it's be much harder to get what you want or what they want so Looking at age cohorts at Noah's spectrum in the late seventies early eighties you would put yourself on list absolutely absolutely and mice loss. I might cost a few hundred dollars or something somewhere to be on a list at at several places yet. But it's it's worth it. It's much better than buying insurance or something. It's giving you an option because something usually happens that's proceeded somebody moving in some fall. Some incident some some Accident at the House. The stove is left. Honor so you just never know you don't know when that's GonNa hit and having planned ahead is important and then when you're looking at what you can afford or what you believe you can afford because there are. There are very different types of communities some are are more affordable like ours where this very little entry and it's really to cover the community aspects and then a monthly ongoing and and you have to plan out okay. Mom Lives to ninety. I think you were saying you at a new somebody that lived to one hundred seven hundred. Seven right wow if somebody lives one hundred seven that's GonNa take a long time and a fair amount of resources and what? What is the option? If somebody outlives their resources there there are some four or five key questions to think about an ask What happens? What's the entry was the commitment is? There's some support if people's outlived their resources and the redwoods has called the share fund and other communities have as well but And then if you really want a certain view or certain style that you have to wait longer for that Yeah and knowing that kind of information allows you the option when you want it. Ninety percent of people are not gonNA choose this and that's another important thing to know. Most people will die at their in their own home or in a hospital or after a very short stay in a nursing home. Most people are not going to choose to go to retirement community. And that's great too. We celebrate that. That's wonderful but for those people that plan ahead and want that socialization want those amenities. You really have to think about what it is where it is. Who Do. I want to be near my Mama's often said when I was in Washington. She wanted move down there and I said MOM I. My wife does international work. I might move somewhere else. I'm glad they didn't because I'm not there anymore. So you need to think about who you WANNA be around to right So that that she's around I do to my my my brother and sister both live. My brother lives with about fifteen minutes. My sister in our yeah She's got so she does. She stayed where her community was. She stayed with her friends. Are She moved to a retirement community?

"Tell us about who you are and where you came from sure. Well I can go way back and talk about. Why even in this business at this desk? That's all part of the two grandmothers integrate aunt. That needed care A long time ago when the first continuing care communities were being developed and be backing back in Massachusetts Okay and At a great aunt at one of them loved loved it But there were things about it that I thought needed to be changed or improved. When my mother's mother developed a tumor on our frontal low She was in good health but Needed because she was losing your touch with reality needed to protect their safe environment and this is well before what's now commonly called assisted living was developed. So there wasn't any place within even an about an hour almost a two hour drive away and I just thought that was wrong. And it's sort of inspired me to do a lot of what I do today. Oh interesting yeah so. When is your background Well I actually. I thought about medicine I thought about law did a little bit at a business as a strong numbers background and was doing work for banks and financial institutions. It was getting pretty good paycheck here but not really return. I wanted here and I was in the consulting business and was able to move from working with banks to a working with retirement communities doing market research and consulting. How did she get that bridge? It was a little bit of a challenge and a little bit of a leap of faith. I had taken a an evening marketing course when our division was looking at doing more business and identified it as an opportunity because of the interest at a growing one for us to look into company decided not to do it and so I said okay. We'll I'm going to try it on my own. Yeah well it sounds like you have a passion for it. I do so much fun. I I can't really explain why but I was always closer than my brother and sisters to my grandparents and just had that kind of love and interest in hearing the stories and and working with helping them with their lives. Wisdom probably to operate learning stories story. Yeah so they probably been gone for quite a while they have yes. My parents are both ninety now. They help them move to a retirement community when they were in their early eighties and And then also back in balls air outside of Boston Community called North Hill which is in Needham. Which is right on one. Twenty eight many people can hear might be familiar with that because it was the high tech area for okay but Yeah they're ninety and they're both now in in skilled care. Nursing Care are they. I mean are they fairly healthy? Well no they're unskilled care because my father has carotid arteries doesn't get enough blood to his reign anymore and and His short term memory is is pretty shot his long term memories. Still pretty good and my mother Followed about six months later mainly due to pain. She had been taking care of him living for him helping him. And when that was released started focusing on herself and Really ended up with more challenges. Went through a really bad period but working with the physicians in the team at the community. We were able to get to a good place where she's actually she alive. Speak with her weekly We go visit her and a couple of weeks now but she's a very good place where she feels like. It is now the right place for and she's happier about that. She's astute very much very connected. Can't yeah so I know that you from sharing in the car. You are bicoastal. Basically yes I did. Life has did move here from from essentially the DC market. I lived in Arlington Virginia and worked in a with a community. There but my daughter went to Santa Clara and so I was coming back and forth. Good I have a sister who lives in San Anselmo down here for several years. I knew what I was getting into. One of my wife's best friend is in the city. So well yeah. It felt comfortable easy. Change when we were looking for an opportunity. My wife and I both when I was Clara daughter was not was their youngest. Wasn't coming back east and we said well. Where could we be in about a month later ahead? Hundred called about this opportunity and I found out about this great community. That's that red goods. Yes and unique is an overused word So I don't try to use unique to describe it but it is very different from most other retirement communities. And how is it different? This is what I wanted to get into sure. Yeah there aren't a lot of people that do what I do. And so I had an opportunity to explore several different opportunities Most of most communities are really designed for very wealthy people and they now many have an entry fee that's thousands if not hundreds of thousands of dollars and And that's great and people with money can can be in those communities and be taken care of and people with money. Generally Will be taken care of move one way or another. The Red Woods was started by the Community Church of Mill Valley as an affordable alternative retirement community and really. They've stay to that commitment for now almost fifty years when and how long they'd been there. Yes Oh yes early. Seventies okay And so it's fascinating. I noticed that they've been doing a lot of construction. Are they still doing well? They I came on about two months after the final work was done and So so no. Fortunately the construction's done people lived through about five years of construction and there were a lot of challenges as there always. Are they renovating your home or bathroom or the kitchen or a big community like we were? There was a lot of work. Fortunately I came at the end of that. Yeah well that's good. Makes it a little bit easier for the entry of taking over? So when makes it different? How much today we have fifty minutes? The Ford ability is one of the things. It structure is different than most communities. It's not it's a continuing retirement community in that it has several levels of care that it offers. But it's what's called in California multilevel care community rather than a life care and a life care you pay a lot up front. And they guaranteed to take care of you for the rest of your life. Oh okay with the with the redwoods. There separate contracts for independent living apartments assisted living and we call it residential loving which is sort of independent living with services. So you can go in there and just have a meals and housekeeping but you can layer in additional services if it when you need them okay. So it's more affordable sort of entry point Oh okay and then there's skilled nursing as well but within the independent living over. A third of the apartments are available to low only available to low income residents there hud subsidized. And I think most people say a retirement community in. Marin it's going to be you know that's why I also ask you on the show that there is affordability for retirement living in Marin four people that are in. Marin it's people from the East Bay are coming and South. They're coming in the city but it's it's predominantly people that live in southern. Marin that that choose to move there and and it really is option. You said about a third word you know I. I don't WANNA say low income but of the independent living. Yes yes over. A third of the apartments are available. You can absolutely say low income. It's the federal standards and actually there's a unique system with Hud housing where you have to have some people that are low income and then extremely low and you might have to extreme lows before you submit another Or admit another person that low income and those standards in this area low income is a pretty high threshold right right and so some people say I'm not low income But you can be asset rich. You can have very valuable house which a lot of people do and be still considered low income because assets not considered generating much income. Tely so a lot of people who are on social security and a pension are still despite what they think considered low income and can take advantage of that those programs take advantage but there's very limited and and people don't turn over quickly in those situations. Yeah.

"Is eight hundred fifty million so that alone is not anywhere near able to cover it and then there's questions of potential finds at the public utilities commission state regulators if this goes to court and there are felony charges there could be fines around that you have all these counties there's over one hundred and fifty lawsuits from both survivors and then the county is themselves and so there i think are really big questions about the future of this utility in where you know the governor's gonna stand on them he's he's historically been a pretty big defender of pg any and even of the cpu see even at time when they were found not to have been doing their job quite frankly as regulators and so i think you know we're going to watch this play out in the legislature we're gonna watch it play on in court and there's a lot on the horizon of uncertainty this you need though trying to essentially get rid of these rules we put wildfire costs onto consumers yes so one of the things they've been very vocal about in recent months is basically in california even if they are found to not have violated any rules so state take one of these you know take the redwood fire in mendocino county cal fire saying that they are equivalent started it actually started another fire the next valley over and that that fire was basically blown into redwood valley nine people died in that five hundred forty three structures were burned but that case was not actually referred to prosecutors and so cal fire saying at least as far as we know because we don't have a ton of details on some of these but they're basically saying look pg and he started this but we don't think they follow the rules and regulations will currently under a legal precedent they could still be held financially liable even if they had followed all the rules if they caused.
