His father saw the brothers body. The arterial blood. The attitude of several other persons in regard to the practice was agnostic.

John who did not dare to express his belief but answered and said whether he was a senator or no i know not one thing i know that whereas i was blind now i see so poetic at the end but like oh you're really got chat so this is stuff that is like to really show you that. This is stuff that people are taking. Seriously yeah these are stories. That people were like this happened. People were mended because of this consumption was gone because we burned the heart of the first person to die in the family. It just. I can't imagine living during this time.

A Comprehensive Defense of America's Embattled Constitution
"We are blessed everybody. We are very very blessed to live in. A country still has some semblance of a divinely. Inspired form of government of the independent jewish judiciary rule of law consent to the govern- checks and balances and that started today. Not actually today. But on this day i should say many many years ago in seventeen eighty seven the united states constitution after it was the seven articles were at least conditionally approved by the constitution convention. They had to go state by state so they had to go. Delaware was the first state rhode island was the last state to ratify and to approve it and there are seven articles of the united states constitution. It wasn't until seventeen. Ninety one that the bill of rights was passed and ratified by all the states. And that's actually what most people know is their constitutional rights first amendment second amendment amendment fourth amendment first amendment right to speech not to be infringed upon by government. Secondment the right to bear arms third amendment. That soldiers don't come into your home fourth amendment. The government can spy on you fifth amendment. You're right against self-incrimination. Six seven and eight all about process speed and a speedy speedy and quick jury of your peers against long imprisonment unfairly ninth amendment which actually one of my favorite amendments to the constitution which says that anything that is not in the constitution does not mean that it's not protected tenth amendment. Things that are not in here are protect are then given to the states and to the people that the for. That's the first ten amendments to the united states constitution. But that actually wasn't part of what we're celebrating today. If i remember correctly december seventeen ninety one that the bill of rights was was ratified. James madison wrote. It is our reason alone that must be placed in control of the government. Our passions must be controlled by it. The constitution spreads power over time and over land makes it hard to change. Things makes it hard to conduct. Quick revolutions you see the founding fathers in this constitution. And this is the best way to defend. Somebody asked me say charlie what conservatives actually believe said. It's very simple. We believe in natural law. We believe in a natural law. Giver founders knew this they wrote it in the declaration which is why the declaration is a partner of the constitution. They go right into each other. As dr larry arnn from hillsdale college would say it's the founders key. They are meant for one
The Chester A. Poling
"Today. I'm going to do something a little different for this installment of your next dive normally tried to take you to a dive destination where we talk about the trip from a number of different perspectives. The travel the lodging the dive operator. Oh yeah the diving. Now we've been around the world. But today i'm going to focus on one particular dive that is almost in our backyard. It is one of the most iconic dives here in new england and that is the wreck of the chester. Polling off gloucester mass. The chester polling was a coastal tanker. That sank in a brutal storm on january tenth. Nineteen seventy seven. The tanker had just left everett massachusetts and was bound for newington new hampshire. That information is pretty consistent in the research but there is other conflicting information about where she had been. And what cargo she delivered for example some documentation said she had previously delivered kerosene to new jersey while others indicated that the heating oil was delivered to everett mass. I would suspect that delivery to everett mass to be more likely always interesting when you Doing research to get this type of inconsistency now the chester polling was bill in nineteen thirty four at mariners harbor new york by united dry docks incorporated it was originally in the plattsburgh sacconi somewhere along the line at also known as the mobile albany before getting renamed as the chester polling at the time of its sinking it was owned by the motor vessel polling brothers and that was number one inc. I wasn't able to find who was actually named after but obviously some member of the family. So that's a little bit of history about the ship now on january tenth. Nineteen seventy seven capital captain. Bert charles burgess was in command. The forecast for that day was for thirty five mile an hour winds along with fifteen to twenty foot seas. the chester polling chester. A polling left. Everett are left everett at six thirty. A m well as we all know. Forecast can be wrong. The winds built up to fifty miles per hour and to seize goddess highs. Thirty feet facing the mounting sees captain. Burge's tried to get more stability by adding more ballast but at ten thirty a m a thirty foot waves smashed into the tanker and broke it in half the captain called for abandoning the ship. Six of the seven members of the crew were saved. I believe it was the cook jail. Derosa from providence rhode island who perished the sir. The stern section of the chester polling came to rest off easter point gloucester originally in about seventy five feet of water with the bow section sinking about four miles off of eastern point in about one hundred ninety feet of water subsequent winter. Storms move the stern section to its present location about eight hundred yards off of eastern point about ninety five feet of water. I think the bottom might be a little bit deeper than that. However the stern section of the chester polling is what some folks call hollywood wreck sitting upright and is probably the most popular wreck dive off. Cape ann as that areas known. Now i- i dove the chester polling way back in july two thousand and five. It was my fortieth dive and a double dip on. The polling was part of my advanced open water class. These dyes would constitute my deep and wreck advanced. Open water dives. At that time. I was still diving in a seven. Millimeter wetsuit with the appropriate gloves and hood. I use the standard aluminum. Eighty tank with nighthawks. Thirty two. I can still remember the anxiety that had doing. The first real wreck dive in the northeast but once in the water what an amazing dive the visibility that day was thirty feet and my max step was at eighty five. Even though it was july the water temperature on iraq was fifty degrees. It was incredible to move along the deck and reach the mid mid ship section where. The tanker broken half absolutely mesmerizing but with an aluminum. Eighty you don't get much bottom time and after about fifteen minutes we headed back to the up line and after are appropriate safety. Stop we climb back aboard the boat and got ready to do it again. Total dive time was twenty six minutes the second dive that day was just as spectacular and pretty much the same profile. Let me just say in a wetsuit. It can get pretty chilly. I didn't go back to the chester polling until august. Two thousand nine and that was my last trip there. It was my two hundred and forty ninth dive but this time i did it in a dry suit and hope to get some good video of iraq. I still dove aluminum. Eighty the dive was just as i remembered and just as exciting visibility again was thirty feet. And my max. Depth was eighty two with and the bottom temperature. That day was forty eight degrees still very cold but so much better in a dry suit again however with an aluminum eighty. You just. Don't get much bottom time especially if your task loading like shooting video so my recommendation is that if you are planning to die the polling you might want to consider a little bit bigger tank something like a steal one hundred or going to doubles. I know that i wouldn't consider going back with anything less than a steel one hundred tank. How do you get to the chester polling back. Then we use cape and divers but they closed up several years ago and recently the dive boat cape and diver to was purchased by several guys from boston. An air now operating regularly chart regular charters again became an diverse to is a forty five foot. us coastguard registered dive vessel. It is spacious and right now with limited divers on board you get plenty of room to get ready and dive but you don't get a lot of but you don't get a lot of time because you don't have a lot of time to get ready because the is only a few minutes from the dock so be prepared one thing. Different about northeast wreck diving. Is that as a diver. You need to bring all your gear that includes tanks weights everything. It's not like diving at a resort. Don't get caught short by not being prepared with all your own stuff now. Here's an interesting element. That i discovered during my research. It appears that in nineteen sixties. The chester polling was length lengthened. By maybe twenty six or so feet. That doesn't sound like much. But at the time of her sinking her length with two hundred and eighty two feet so that lengthening was about ten percent of the original ship's length could this have been a contributing factor for the ship splitting in half. I wonder so if you happen to be in the area of cape ban in gloucester massachusetts. You might wanna look up cape and diver to and head out for a double dip on the chester a
What is the 'Spiral of Silence?'
"Somebody asked me here. This question is greg from rhode island. He says charlie. Why is that so. Few people are fighting back against these unconstitutional measures. I want to tell you. All about the spiral of silence. The spiralis silence is a phrase that every single one of you should know about the spiral of science will explain exactly why we are being suffocated by tyrants. And you look around to your left and you look to your right and so few people are fighting or contesting for your values now. We have talked at length on our program about the ash conformity experiment. the ash. Conformity experiment was of course this experiment where several students were lined up and want one of the students was the actual test subject the rest in on it and they were shown lines on a chalkboard and they were asked which one of these lines is the longest and which one of them is the shortest and the other ones that were the students that were in on the experiment. Not the ones being tested would intentionally choose the shortest one an amazingly. They were able to manipulate the test subject into saying something he knew. That was actually not true. The spiral silence was written and it was conducted by elizabeth noelle neumann. Who wrote the spiralis. Silence public opinion. Our social skin. Every one of you should tell your friends this weekend and a cocktail party or at a gathering. Hey do you know about the spiral of silence and make you sound really smart in a controlled experiment. It was found that individuals denied their privately held values in order to conform to perceived publicly held values thus avoiding negative social judgment.
Beached Rat Carcasses Indicate Mass Rodent Death During Ida
"Gotha missed today. The headline says beached rat carcasses indicate mass rodent death during ida experts. Say they were talking about the number of beach of of rat carcasses that have been found along the beaches of new york city since that storm came through. And here's what bobby corn corrigan. A longtime pest control expert and former rhode intelligence for the new york city department of health. Set with this with this particular storm. Any rats that were in the sewers were either crushed by the current or swept out into the rivers now rat populations in new york city number typically in the millions right so i tweeted out this story today and then i got a bunch of responses along these lines which is peace from the cdc from a number of years ago that says rats can swim or wade in the water for up to three days without drowning. They like to swim a very good at it. Iraq survived being flushed down the toilet and might even get back into the same building by swimming back the same way

All of her students were white to encourage prudence to take a more aggressive stance. Prudence is black housekeeper. Marsha davis began strategically leaving copies of the abolitionist newspaper. The liberator in places where she knew prudence would find them. The liberator promoted the need for immediate abolition as opposed to a gradual abolition. That was more commonly supported by the new england. Delete sarah harris who came from a prominent black family in the area was the first to actively approach prudence about integrating school. Sara was eager to continue her own education so that she could become a teacher for other black children and in eighteen thirty. Two prudence enrolled sarah in the canterbury boarding school. The decision was met with outrage white. Parents demanded that prudence expel sarah when she refused. They withdrew their daughters from the school realizing that she'd need to find new sources of tuition. Prudence went to speak with william lloyd garrison.

The History of Neighborhood Witches in America
"Superstition was common in the late. Sixteen hundreds if something odd or unexplainable happened the automatic response from most people was to blame the supernatural but most scholars agree that these beliefs were merely excuses to help people deal with neighbors and family members that they didn't care for if you didn't like somebody. It was common to accuse them of witchcraft. In the most famous historical example of this the witch trials of salem massachusetts. We can see a clear pattern in the events. Many of those accused of being witches were wealthy and held religious beliefs. That were different from their accusers. Wants a subject was convicted. Their estate would be confiscated by the court and in a community that was known for property disputes grazing rights and religious arguments. That became a recipe for disaster. And what happened in salem happened. Elsewhere around new england just on a smaller scale neighbors accused neighbors constantly. Stories were told. Lives were ruined. It was the way of things. I suppose not ideal but also not uncommon in one story from exeter rhode island. A farmer was said to have been carting his lumber to market when a cat ran across the road for some unknown reason. This farmer immediately jumped to the conclusion. The cat was actually a neighbor of his. A woman who he insisted was a witch she had of course transformed herself into the cats in order to meddle in his business. This farmer though was fast on his feet not only did he see the cat running and then make the connection to his witchy neighbor but he then managed to pull out his gun. He was said to a fired. A silver bullet at the katz. Something well known at the time to be effective against witches and struck his target at that very moment according to the story be suspected which fell in her own. Home breaking her hip. In the town of salem new hampshire a man decided that his cow looked strangely different from how he remembered and he made the most logical conclusion he was. capable of. His neighbor was a sorcerer and the man had bewitched his cow folklore dictated the solution to he cut off the cows ears and tail and then burned them soon. After the farmers neighbor was found dead victim of a house

When they went outside to investigate they saw a woman whose face they knew quite well. In fact most people in america would have recognized her. She was tall and blonde and wandering days near a smash car crying out for eddie. The woman's name was doris duke when she'd been born headlines declared her the richest little girl in the world.

Wet Notes 8-30-21
"This is wet notes here on scuba shack radio for monday august thirtieth two thousand and twenty one. Well we have certainly had our fill of extreme weather lately just last week here. In connecticut we face the challenges of tropical storm on re just barely below hurricane strength and at the last minute it shifted east and we avoided the brunt of the wind rhode island wasn't as fortunate and now we have item a cat for hurricane hit louisiana. Extreme weather is now the norm. The news keeps getting worse. Recently there was a study published by nicholas bars from the potsdam institute for climate impact research and that was that the gulfstream could be varying towards irreversible collapse. Now the gulf stream is part of the atlantic meridional overturning circulation or a. m. Oc this circulation takes warm salty. Water from the tropics moves in north and then takes the cold water south. The study finds that the circulation is at its weakest in one thousand years. So what happens if the gulfstream collapses that will dictate extreme cold for parts of north america and europe. Is the collapse imminent well. That's not an easy question. Answer it could be decades away but as we have seen things are happening a lot faster when it comes to climate change not only will the disruption of the gulfstream resort in colder north american temperatures. It is predicted that there will be a rise in sea level disruption of the monsoon patterns and impacts on the amazon rainforest. An aunt arctic ice sheets. The study concluded that is that this is all a result of human endorse induced climate. Change in may of this year. I talked about a project out on lake. Tahoe called cleanup lake. That project had an ambitious goal of cleaning over seventy two miles of the mountain lake. So i thought i would give it a quick update on how the work is progressing. Now these numbers come from the cleanup delake website. Cleanup delete dot org as earlier this month. Team of divers has removed an amazing eight thousand. One hundred and twenty two pounds of trash were three hundred and three thousand six hundred eighty four kilograms and covered about twenty two miles or thirty four kilometers of coastline. There update indicated that they have completed seventy four dives over twenty seven days of diving. The diver's consumed two hundred and eighty six cylinders of air. Today there have been eighty one volunteers who have delivered two thousand six hundred and eleven volunteer hours. Now i'm not sure if they're on pace to meet their objectives but that's not always the measure success. The amount of continuing effort is what really counts. Keep up the good work guys. The annual boston sea rovers clinic for this year is just one month away. The two thousand twenty clinic happened just a couple of weeks. Before the corona corona virus lockdowns took effect. We really didn't know how serious things were then. Now as we continue to emerge from the pandemic the show may just have the distinction of being the last face to face. Scuba show in the world before the pandemic and the first face-to-face scuba show in the world post pandemic monty. And i were at the last meeting. And everything's proceeding for the october. First and second show the show will follow state and local mandates and as the days pass by. We are all hoping that the show will go off his plan. This year shows moved from the traditional march date to october as a result of the pandemic that you'd be a great time to enjoy some early fall weather in new england. It'd be great to get together and diving is certainly a social sport. Do you miss dive training magazine. I sure do. I think i've re reread all the back issues. We have a good shop at least three times. So what's happening with the publication. Well i reached out to catherine castle garcia the editor to find out the latest catherine informed me that they hope to be publishing again in the fourth quarter of two thousand and twenty one. Now that's some good news. The fourth quarter is not that far away. And i'm certainly looking forward to dive training magazine hitting the streets and finally here on wet notes. I wanted to give you an update on the situation with dutch springs. If you remember last time. I reported that the property owned by stu jill school had been sold to trammell crow texas developer. Who's planning to build a large warehouse facility on the property. The initial word was that dutch would shut down after the season while a lot has happened in the last couple of weeks i there was a petition that garnered over three thousand supporters to keep the place open and as we know petitions can only go so far then there was support from patty professional association of diving instructors patty due to white paper outlining the economic benefits dutch brings provides as a diving venue. Patty estimates that because dutch exists. It helps to generate three point. Four billion annual retail sales in the northeast they tag the economic benefit to bethlehem at thirty four point five million as for tax revenue. The paper indicates that about ninety. Eight point nine million is generated for state and local taxes and northeast and about two point one million for bethlehem in addition to patty support. The lehigh valley planning commission has called the proposal of disaster for the quality of life in the lehigh valley while it seems that there a great deal of opposition to maybe very little that can be done to stop the effort. One positive. I that i did see. Was that trammell. Crow was indiscretions with local officials to offload the fifty off lou to fifty acre quarry for community use. Just how would you get to acquire if they build the warehouses. I don't know while the saga is far from over. I would expect that we won't see. Dutch brings open for the twenty twenty two dive season but his al michaels once said. Do you believe in miracles. Well that's it for this edition of wet notes. Here on scuba shot radio for august thirtieth two thousand and twenty one

That's enough of that already getting crickets because this happened. I think we should in the world. Try and give ryan locked e the benefit of the doubt. Right we've always said ryan lock is like floating gronk right. He's like swimming nodding so good. Their best friends spread makes sense. Like if grant could swim he would be ryan locked the nf ryan like you could catch passes. You would be like right. So good like lindsey if you were to do one of those souls switching movies okay and those two guys switched sold night on with no no one would be like if we switch soul if lackey jumped into gronk spotty and gronk jump deadlocked so locked just injured himself. I mean he tried to make it back for the olympics. I don't know if you saw that. But he tried and he just barely missed showing you how difficult it is to make an olympic team for any ethic. Okay does he now. No thirty seven. Great question. Thirty seven years old and he is recovering due to an apparent accident. An inflatable waterslide. Is that the most laki thing ever liked to me. they're better bit vodka. Going down that water slide. But he's gonna try and drink the vodka as he's sliding down but that is just he posted on instagram. Like you just life by the way just kyla read. I thought it'd be read but just say just say lindsay that you had an accident an undisclosed. We can call it a soft tissue accident in my right. that's true. Is anyone asking all of the follow up questions posed. They're being coy about it. That's so lucky It's like gronk tripping over a karaoke machine and landing on along with his shirt on one hundred percent like what so you so his life wrote i. She really posted a photo of him. Giving a thumbs up on a hostile. He's mike utley. Jesus christ in the hot and the thumbs up is what guys give when. They're carried off on a stretcher so we know they're not paralyzed thumbs up like locked. Don't give the thumbs up because you had an inflatable water slides. She wrote o- going into though. I wanna to know more about the. You can't just say you had an accident on an inflatable water. Sled and not be very specific about what that she's roll off the top. Don't race down and inflatable kids waterslide. Folks so all she wrote don't race done it so clearly. He was trying to some kids like again. He didn't make the olympics. He's got to get that racing out of his system. He probably was driving along and saw some like waterslide and was like. I gotta get in this right now. You kids are toast. And then he heard surgery was a success also. Wrote surgery surgery okay. Was he racing on his feet like could have been run down a waterslide. Understand how you could just pick up too much. Maybe he doesn't know how waterslide works. God blessed. I mean his wife crazy. We'll all right so let's move on so we were talking about You know the contracts in the nfl. And i think you know. The nba contracts are insane. I don't know if you've been following going on with the lakers and whatnot but dennis schreuder. Dennis schroder was offered like an eighty. Two million dollar eighty. Four million dollar contract to resign with the lakers. Now they sign russell westbrook. So no one's gonna pass no one's gonna pass anymore and to you might not get your reps. But he was like no. I can hold out. And he held out any held out and he wound up signing a six and five point nine million minimum contract with the celtics that may be a better landing place for him but he left seventy nine million dollars on the table. Practically that is a huge with ever proportion than his wife wrote. I'm so proud of my husband. And he made the decision to stay true to himself and to fight for his calls and his vision. spin like. That's when you need your spouse part of me that's like damn i love. How much is wife his fricking corner right now. Like it's writer died nine million dollars. Who needs that yeah. Let's be honest criticism. That's your money to girl. i mean. Come on bullets be honest k. Five million dollars also doesn't suck no like in the grand scheme of the world. Five million dollars is enough five million dollars if you play it right and you invest it right and you live wisely you can live comfortably and do cool shit. If there's one thing we know about most athletes is that they live. Wi- moneywise well. Here's my question then. Does he have the potential because not a big nba person anymore. So when you a say that name. And i've never heard it before and then be were throwing around that kind of money. That that that's the nba right in a nutshell third. But then but does he have the potential to go earn a bigger contract. It actually plays or is this may be a smart long-term investment strategy that there will be more money on the back end or is this like to literally cut and dry. You're gonna you're gonna make eighty two. I think he has the potential time explosive guard. He's got good size like a great sixth man. If you were to say like okay. Our starting point guard is down. We wanna give us bring intruder. And he's like an energy guy. Till i come in. And how he's kinda like in the english premier league soccer the guy you bring in the sixtieth minute. Who's great but you're not starting you bring him in at that point because you're like he's the energy guy off the bench to kinda get things going. I think he can keep working in the nba. And get like you could make me make another five million dollar contract but you will not see eighty two million dollars ever again and you could act to back them up. God bless her..

"Guys go. That's what i was gonna touch on there. Because i mean that was obviously the big story and he kept saying this off season had nothing to do with the draft or it wasn't the draft. I think the point there was more or at least whatever. I'm gonna tell you what i'm gonna hop inside his head. I've no idea but my read of it is that it's not so much that it had nothing to do with the draft. It's just don't make it all about the draft drag artist symptom of a larger disease and the draft. Absolutely something you could point to. Because you're sitting there with a subaru caliber team. You just need a couple more pieces and we saw that right like even. They did a draft where they took a quarterback who's going to sit on the bench and not contribute at all. And then they took a running back. Who i love by the way a love. Aj dylan and these all might be good. Is the term strategy draft picks but in the short term. You are a team that is right there. Knocking on the door gives me something that puts us over the top so that we can compete with the chiefs and we can compete with the and they didn't get that and so i'm aaron rodgers and so frustrated because my window is closing. I am getting older. I'm one of the best quarterbacks that's ever been in the nfl. And i'm not winning. These championships is not because of me. And so give me something else and then you give me two pieces. That can't do anything with that. You have no intention of doing anything with that. Would drive me in saying also. Don't let go don't let go of joining us. I'm sorry go ahead. Continuous but then on the back injury also gonna look it. You're going to look aaron rodgers on the back end of his career and when we have the conversation about whether he's the best ever and we're comparing him to tom brady. People are gonna go only one one right you know like that's his fault and so i would. I fully understand all of his frustration. I get it you know. Here's the two players rallied around him. When he was like got back in that i am was like. I'm talking to you. i'm talking to you. Know this layer and this layer and this player who was either way out the door. We affleck when i was at the oscars where he said look guys. Marriage is hard. Everyone's like hard. Yes is really hard. But i did. Everyone's like i've just started watching. Someone told me to start watching the formula one drive for success. It's like a series on mike. I can't tell you anything about for lewis hamilton. The only thing. I can tell you about four hundred and bernie ecclestone. Who's like a tremendous misogynist. Those two things. I can tell you about formula one. Compared women to refrigerators they both being working in the i started. But i started watching the series and really in my brain. I was like okay so think about this. In terms of other sports aaron rodgers is the driver of your car. Your car is like you gotta outfit. It's gotta be the right engine. You gotta give the right this you gotta have the right pit crew around it to kind of help it out. Why would you not say to aaron and sit down and say what do you need to make the car better for you. You're the one driving it. We want your input here. Oh you want a different type of steering suspension. The one they have mercedes we can push pull it out and so it helps you on the turns better. Let's get you that. I mean we're live like you said we're this close. So why would they. And you know his comment about like look. Green bay is not a vacation. Destination is the point is like let me talk to people and explain to them why they should come. Yes why wouldn't you want him to recruit. He's the coolest dude ever totally. Will i just thought of it. In terms of you know my own experience and i'm sure everybody did the exact same thing but like you know when you host a tv. Show for instance. You're like i know i promise you like. I am in that rundown every single day. I know exactly the ways in which it maybe like when it turns into something that we want it to turn into. That's good tv and when it kind of flattens out like come to me and ask me every once in a while suggestions but in so many businesses. You're like you just do you take care of it. But i would later. What do you need to succeed. Why what do you or at the very least. What do you think is in isn't working. What's your feedback. What your what are your thoughts in hand. We get better because you are in some ways driver. You know of this into business. It's good all see. We all see people who for whatever reason. Don't check in with other people about what's working. What's not working and it makes you feel devalued good so yeah i think in that either someone's narcissism that they think they can handle it all or they're overwhelmed so they can only survive themselves and they don't understand how the aso's billionaires who are like. Don't tell me in front office people. Don't tell me how to do my job like the this. Is jerry krause walking around. Like i made the bulls. It's like you have. Did you had some good decisions of talk to michael. Right right. might scotty did. It doesn't really do so but the point is in that one moment aaron rodgers essentially made it so that like eh made it so that we all everybody who's ever been at a job who hasn't been valued in certain ways actually related to the guy which i thought was just fascinating. Incredible kinda went scorched earth. In a way of like. Nfl is like keep it in house. Don't make as many. If you got a problem. You got to keep it in house but he was like. I can't hold my tongue anymore. If you're when the cops get called in for a fight between hope solo. And jeremy stevens. Like when jeremy stevens hiding between the bed and the wall. You're like something bad happened here. Let's let's bake this public frigging cops now. I know but it was just. It was a bizarre. It was bizarre. No no it was a very bizarre situation but also again it's like when the outside world is gets a glimpse into a domestic dispute so to speak not domestic violence. I'm saying domestic dispute between people in in house thing you know something is terribly wrong. And when aaron rodgers speaking to the world it's like when someone is tweeting out to the world instead of damning. The person they're angry at they are trying to let the they're like we couldn't handle it. He acts as big as the message. Itself is that. I'm letting everybody here this one. I also think the thing with aaron is and i think we all know is not lacking in the confidence department. I think there's part of errands personality. That is interested in things outside of football. That's interested in outside world things and looks at it like i have power. I have an as we learn as we learned. He doesn't have as much leverage as maybe he thought or we thought. And that's just the way that nfl contractor structured and power. Whatever but that's a different conversation. But i think he looked like if i can't feel this way then who can and so. I feel comfortable standing up and saying all of these things in trying to exact some sort of change. Because i have the power to do that. If i can't then who will no one will. I have that power. That's right. I mean i have the power of the contract but i have the power of my voice in this platform to actually say something and all the players will be behind me and i wear to you. There was not one player who was like you know what i don't think he was thinking. This every player was like yeah man. Go do it go. I think there probably were little bit later. In the holdout or whatever you wanna call it the situation that we're only like totally get it. But also i really wanna ring so please please come back here. And i'm sure he for me and i'm sure he appreciated that too. I'm sure he was like. Oh that's awesome. Yes my players. Want me and need me in a way that like maybe management is not saying that they do.

"Different things well in the back yard personal goes guys are there so it's to meet with interesting and i want your opinion on this over over the entire nfl. I think again. I was reading an article about the us open tennis and how this could be the end of that era of the great. Like truly the great. It's we're watching the best tennis players of all time three of them. Maybe one two and three the best tennis players ever playing right now and there is nobody behind them. So the sport in my opinion is poised for a terrible crash when they're all out of it because who's gonna watch nobody's gonna care unless someone emerges the nfl in my opinion like the nba is so positioned well to have the best of the best year. Drew brees tom. Brady aaron rodgers when those guys leave the net you kind of have like the next era people we were talking about russell wilson and you know even look at the young guy like lamar jackson baker mayfield even and now they got these rookies coming in. I think at the quarterback position. We've never seen this league in such good health. As far as like cooler the next superstars to take over. Do you feel that way. Are we looking at sort of a quarterback not renaissance but like a boom in a way that like we've never seen absolutely and the thing that was crazy about last year. I thought it was striking. Was how many of the rookie. Quarterback's came in and had success immediately. Like just in herbert. Who the chargers didn't even that wasn't their plan. They their plan was to start. Tyrod taylor or tyrod taylor member when we had that whole how do you say his name. Anyway to road taylor. But i'm not sure so. They and then he gets hurt and just in herbert's turned into the fire. And then just never it. looks amazing. That dude josh allen. I'm not even mentioning josh allen. He's incredible josh's yeah. He incredible it for the future. Austin buffalo bills. i mean. he's amazing. The i talked to jordan palmer who trains quarterbacks last year about this subject matter. And he said that quarterbacks are coming out more ready for the nfl than ever before for a number of different reasons fell is nfl stealing lot of college scheme. So there's not that much of a difference it's like used to talk about pro style offense now the pro style and the college like it all kind of looks a lot more of the same fitting their offenses to the talent somewhat. Exactly which is why. Would you take lamar jackson and make him a statue or or receive. They would have done that twenty years ago. I would have been like. Here's what we do well. Depending on what coach got their hands on him so he ended up with a great situation was willing to rebuild the whole offense to his skill. Set your spot but also another thing. One of the things. That jordan said. That i thought was very interesting was that you have amateur quarterbacks that are going to passing league camp seven on seven things. They're televised there on social media. Everyone within this group all knows each other and the spotlight is is bright very soon like at an early age so these kids learn how to deal with the attention and the pressure and all that kind of stuff and the ones who can't don't rise to the top and they don't rise to the top faster so we know earlier we know earlier that they can do is going to rise you flick. Yours quinn fricken yours. I'm just going to say that. The kid who from texas who skipped skipping his senior going to ohio state. And i l is going to have a huge part of that like guys you know like jordan. Jordan palmer is working with a michigan. We went to university. Michigan is working with michigan. Quarterback cade mcnamara. Okay who's probably going to be the starter and what k- talked about similar. You know basically what you're listening to what palmer was doing with him. In terms of setting up like a box on the field and literally having sensors all over his body like it's a video game and analyzing very down to the almost the microcell how you're throwing mechanics are correct or incorrect. These are things that like a quarterbacks coach with just an i would say i think your elbows to know they can show you on a screen over and over again. No you got to raise your elbow up when you throw it in like their learning these tiny tiny intricacies now in in college and the beginning that like you say. Get them ready. That let you're saying. How is joe borough. If he doesn't get injured how is he playing at such a high level right away. Well because he has been ohio state in you know the players are not going to class so they don't have to ever take a class ever and someone else is taking their tickets with them so they have more time to work on courts. Have more time to not entering into this. I can answer that the same back at a so. I went to usc in our rival is ucla. It doesn't work the same. I can't throw stuff at ucla's in ucla. Picking on them there. But you can throw it it. Maurice jones drew if you ever see him one around the hallways and i do. Don't worry i'm glad you so exciting times. I mean yeah you mentioned like kylo. Murray and uh-huh patrick mahomes is just in his third year fourth year. He's it's insane moments as a veteran because he's already gone so far he's still obviously the best player in the league right but like when radius so i'm not worried when brady decides to retire in six in six years. I'm not. please don't say that i'm not worried. We can take some of the tb twelve juice you never know but like look look. I love me some brady era respect. I appreciate all of the things. Okay this is my disclaimer. I want him to go away. Like i just for for purposes of what i do. I'm so tired of having the same conversation every single year. It's like the brady narrative the com- the questions that pop up every year at super bowl of his legacy. And i'm just bored. He's the best. He's the best ever and you may not see another again. Unless patrick mahomes goes on a crazy run but i think there's more parody i actually think there's more parody like yes brady had to do it. In the time of the aaron rodgers and aaron rodgers. It's so interesting because when weird. This whole aaron rodgers thing was happening over the summer jane our guest hosting jim rome show when it was literally half dropping so we were so knee deep in. And we're like why. Aaron rodgers has the best completion touchdown to interception ratio in the last three years. I think it was like ninety nine to eleven. So eh for every nine passes he has ten passes nine touchdown passes. He has one interception. That's that's insane. When you think about that it's so good. Brady's best three years best three years. Where like i wanna say. Five point seven to one so like it's amazing. Why isn't he winning more. And it goes back to something else that you said. Sometimes you need the coach to be a superstar as much as your quarterback and when they make a dumb decision you wind up paying for it. Do you know what. I'm saying any specific. I'm decision. I don't going kicking a field goal when you should have been going for it just like little things but all those things add up. You just shows you that like brady. It was amazing and incredible. And then he had check check and now he has arians. And you're just like okay. He's all the pieces right. The front office.

"That's right. Why are we doing lately. Just in fields is a is a tesla. That may have some problems within andy. Dalton is a rental camry rental that you're like okay. This will get to the airport and back in analogy. How no offense to cameras or y'all well or maybe some offense of them but But the the idea what is detroit have to do in this conversation. Because i think both teams are so so i think both teams are looking at the packers. Going like okay. Keep pissing off. Aaron rodgers so that he leaves and goes to denver or somewhere else like i actually think if matt stafford there's going to sound crazy but if if stafford has a bad season for the rams like i could see the rams trying to court aaron rodgers to come out there i can see it like you loves. La he he'd be home. You would get such a great quarterback for a few years host jeopardy anymore though that you know. He's got lessen his closet. I'm string. He's got lessen his closet than whoever they're asking a host jab. They got another guy. Oh they got the guy who was the producer and they're like nah this guy he's treated women poorly. And you're like yeah. If you have stuff in your closet you cannot host jeopardy. Aaron rodgers air are suddenly looking like a great option for jeopardy. But i'm just saying like i could see him defecate team in denver and i definitely could see him on the rams you know. He's the the rams and denver to mir very similar. They're like one great quarterback away from being very much in contention but see. I think stafford's going to be. I think stafford's gonna be great with the rams because i think he's going to be everything they need him to be. I think that the issue with golf is that. I don't think that the rams need a patrick mahomes type. Who can who can account for all the deficiencies around him and raise the level of play for everybody now granted. He doesn't necessarily need to with the chiefs right. He has great weapons around what we've seen from him. It's clear that he can make do with lesser. He had to win the super bowl two years ago. He had to win it. They're down at halftime. And you're looking. He's on the sideline of those playoff games down in almost every single. They're down and i'm sweating and i don't even care. I'm like watching the game. And actually when. I don't have a dog in the race. I'm so much happier because then i can just sit there appreciate the game and i'm watching mahomes. And he's got his hands in his in his hands in his shoulder pads he's just standing there. I'm like dude a lot more than he is and he comes back and leads him. And i'm like dude this is this is the guy you see. What having that. That sort of superstar. Qb why he's he's. He's a unicorn they don't come along very often guys like that and the but they don't have to write like so that is obviously you want that if you can get that. But you don't have to have that in order to win the super bowl or to be a very good team. I think that in this case you could. Look at like sean. Mcvay might be the unicorn and that might be all that they need. You know as a guy who can buy them time with the motion. At the line of scrimmage he kind of he can write it up. So we're you essentially look at the players and you go. You just do what. I'm literally telling you to do when i'm telling you to do it. And everything will be fine. You don't have to be e anything. Greater than what i'm asking you to be. And i think matthew stafford is the perfect quarterback for that because we're going to see how bad detroit was right now. You know what i mean. We're gonna see how well but also you're gonna see how i like what you're saying you're we're gonna see how good sean mcvay is. It's like rainy. And i didn't episode or two episodes of better call saul and you just walk in and do the lines you don't try to improvise. Try to change anything. Do the lines do what they're they mapped it out. They mapped the whole also vary like tampa bay rays in not to equate it to a different sport but like the rays have a system in place. Like look they lose blake's now and you say to yourself any other team that would lose their number one pitcher the guy who basically carried them if you leave him in instead of taking him out. Who knows maybe they win. The world series. You lose that guy and suddenly detail good. Yeah the the best record american league you sater's of oh my god they have a system in place so i think you can do that football as well as you're saying and more so in football because you're drawing up plays you know in baseball you do have to rely on a certain degree of talent. Send a hitter to the plate. It's up to them. You gotta hit the ball. You can't knock coach coach during it. Bat exactly defensively. Gotta make the catch. You gotta make the throw you gotta do all of these different things in in football you can essentially scheme it all up so that as long as everybody literally just does the thing the bare minimum that they're asked to do. Because i think if you look at the rest of the rams roster outside of the the other unicorn aaron donald and they definitely have a lot of talented pieces for sure but offensively know beasley in. Robert woods i think that they're good enough vaccinated so i guess it doesn't matter anyway looking at them from a talent standpoint and going. Oh my gosh. They're off the charts. No i mean you're just kind of like these systems league good there and that is the team that makes them look like they're the best them. What are they gonna do at running back. Because didn't don't they is in acres out for you know yup yup so yeah i don't know they gotta get it maybe get a trade or something well. So they've got henderson still right and darryl really serviceable. He shouldn't forget that he he didn't. It wasn't so much that he lost the starting running back role as they had other options. Had to work in acres kind of one it with the way that he finished the season. Latch fantasy tips. Amazing was amazing. But keep in mind daryl. Henderson was on the bench. You know what i mean. So it's like darrell. Darrell henderson might have been amazing to. He certainly flashed in such a way that when they had camakers. I was going into this season saying from a fantasy standpoint again. I don't know about taking camakers as high as came makers is going because darryl henderson is still there and i can't imagine them just him on. The bench has the talent that he has. You have to find a way to utilize him so this is his moment the moment you say to him. Hey man you want to go get some money in the nfl. Yeah do it do it now if there's a position in the nfl where you can kind of do that. It's running back. You don't have to be all the things he doesn't have to be a three down back and probably he's not but i also think if there's a coaching staff or like a front office in the league that's gonna look at everything and go. Kay here's what you do. Well here's what we don't feel comfortable with you doing now. let's go find somebody that plugs the gaps. That are the things that we specifically don't want you to do. And i think that they'll do a good job. doing that. And those people might be on the roster right now you know you saw james robinson come out of nowhere undrafted and he was a three down back the jaguars that's right. They suddenly felt some sort of strong desire to replace. But it's urban meyer but the point being that it might be a young guy. That's out there. If it's not working right away maybe they go get more veteran guy. It didn't make sense to me. The names that are floating around like gauguin. adrian peterson. Todd gurley were kind of names. That came out right away. And i was like you don't need that you don't find like just get get a committee of some sort of guys who do.

"Guys. Welcome another episode of view from the cheap seats. We the sklar brothers. And thank you joining our sports comedy podcasts. We try to take a look at the world of sports. Go take a deep dive specifically with our guest into one area and then have fun with it as we opening up on crickets and do a little fun voice melting and that's the that is basically the structure of shouts the intersection of comedy sports. A little bit of good music that we play in bumper so joy that today we got a great guest. She's amazing. I've been a fan of hers from the nfl network. She has a fantastic podcast where she breaks everything down in the most detailed way in the world of the nfl road show nfl road. Show of course talking about lindsay rhodes. She's our guest today and she is amazing. We get into all of it. The aaron rodgers of it all the fact that the nfl is perhaps the most healthy Of all the major sports right now in terms of stars and if they retire then starts to follow them up and then starts to follow them up spit specifically at the quarterback position and teams that she thinks are can either be good or great for teams that she thinks could either be bad or good and then of course We get into who we think it's Really dominated in the nfl. Fantastic discussion lindsay. Rhodes she joins us. But i wanna talk about naomi osaka. Who jaded you watch the documentary. I'm in the middle of watching it. Yeah it so good and so many points. There's a feeling from her that she just doesn't want to be in the limelight. It's interesting because i think she wants to play tennis. And wants to play tennis on the highest level. And i think she appreciates at times the the like fashion element of all time and her interests outside of tennis. She's found a way to kind of draw them in us tennis as a way to get the other things that she loves this world. Put them together but she does not like talking to the press number one and number two i think the pressure of it all she can handle it. She doesn't want to handled it and she does. And i don't think she should have to. I think every star is different. She can take questions differently. Maybe maybe maybe reporters are trying to get quotes for their stories. I think maybe with naomi. Osaka maybe they emailed the core email their questions in two. Maybe it's a little more work for reporters and they're going to get angry about that but you have to write down. The question. Initially just hit clicks and clicks and send it to her publicist or someone who works for her and she can dictate her response. And that's it or do it over the phone or something like that. They can do so. There are ways for her to not have to be in front of the cameras because she was in front of the camera and a reporter last week asset. Obviously you don't like being here with me. It's a weird right. Mike question. I guess was you also have outside interests beyond tennis that are served by having The platform that the media presents. You might mike. My question is how how are you able. How do you think you might be able to best balanced to. I can't really help that. There are some things that i tweet or some things that i say that Kind of create a lot of news articles or things. like that. and. I know that it's because i've won a couple grand slams And i've gotten to do a lot of press conferences. are these things happen Diode also say like i. I'm not really sure how to balance a two week. I'm figuring at the same time as you are. I would say so. Essentially he was like you don't like being here with you. Don't like being around us. And she made him. you know. Repeat it and you could tell it really liked stuck her. It really got it. Doug something up underneath. You felt like there was a joy in the reporter saying that. Ask it like the other day. My daughter who she got back from camp and you know for various reasons. She's very much in another world and very distant from us and were at times. Not getting along. This is someone who we are very very close with and get along very well so the other day i asked him do something and then i had to remind her of all the things that that she had to do and i started out by saying. I'm sorry about what i'm about to say to you. I know you're going to be mad. I know this is going to upset you. And that upset her even more. I'm an idiot for doing that. I just literally spa stoke the fire because made me feel good. Because she's been acting a certain. Let me get a little digging on you before. I do my thing. And that's what that question. So that's now. The relationship between the press and naomi osaka which isn't necessarily fair to her. And i think we get in and talk about this later with with with lindsay and i think we are in a situation with athletes where we're asking them to do so many things and then we are shocked and surprise when they stand up and say. I'm not gonna play through this pain. That's right. I this is emotional pain for me and she really made it clear in this press conference with this thing. She's like it's not so much. The press conferences. That i don't like it's when they happen so it's either right before a big match or right after big match emotional emotional and vulnerable and i know that feeling when you give up so much yourself and you emotionally invest in something in your nerves in your anxiety. All we were pratt. We were trying to get our set together for conan and we did it thirteen times in four days to get ready for for our coenen set last one we did and we were at every set was great. We went up to the comedy store in the main stage when we follow joe rogan. Who had a phenomenal set in front of his audience. We were doing a five minute tv set. We're not cursing and for whatever reason maybe it just wasn't up to it. It was not a good set and we came off stage and both of us were extraordinarily pissed. Because we're like this guy to go on count in we just bombed out. Some at whole press corps suddenly interviewed us in that moment we would. It would have been a disaster disaster so instead we were able to have time along with each other and say let's go upstairs to the belly room and see if we can't set up there and try and walk off the stage in a with a good feeling and walk out of this place and we did and it was great but if someone would have talked to us in that moment and be like how you guys found about your material. We'd be like terrible. I don't think it should be a comedian. And i hate you for asking equitable and so like your emotional. I understand that was after one. Fifteen minutes at a comedy. Think about playing for three hours on the tennis court and losing a game that you match that you should have one so that is look there. Are i think people like you. Gotta be mentally tougher. Air john mcenroe in the back of his brain being. Like you've got to be mentally tough and maybe you were john mcenroe more mentally tough but we again always going to go back. And point to bjorn borg bjorn. Borg seemed mentally tough. He seemed strong and they tried to kill himself. Right so is gonna come out. It's gonna come out somewhere. it's going to come out. I'd rather someone say i can't do this. Presser then twenty years from now. Try to hang themselves right exactly so. That's a very very different so we need to. I think in some of these moments say every person is different right. Every person isn't martina navratilova. Every person is in em marta. Lena by the way. Have you heard martina and chris. Evert talk about martino who i thought was like a machine. She was like the most emotional person ever and chrissie. Evert lloyd crazy ever. Everett was like the most like machine. And like i never knew that about the two. So you go out there. And they give their life on the line the only thing that the world kind of puts them in these situations where they all seem the same all these athletes. Some people can handle things. Some people can't handle things. I think we need to have a new approach. You know how cove reset everything in our lives and our understanding. Hey maybe a broad brush doesn't need to paint everybody the same way. Maybe we deal with some people this way and other people's the other way maybe it takes a little longer. It's more to have different approach. It might be more work for everybody but let's just do it. Maybe that we'd better for.

The storm is making its way through Connecticut, and while it has caused flooding and left thousands without power It appears to be going better than anticipated. Connecticut Public Radio's Frankie Graziano follow the storm along the Connecticut shoreline today, and he is with us now. Welcome. Thank you for joining us. Thank you for having me. So what's been Andris impact there? So I would have to say that more than anything on Reed's been a bit of a nuisance in Connecticut, and the fact that there has been some flooding a major highway and interstate 91 in Connecticut near the Connecticut River was shut down for flooding. And some homes in eastern Connecticut have dealt with power outages, but in the aggregate, I would say in the last few days Ever source who was a major power company here said that they expected up to 69% of their customers could lose power. The actual numbers in the last hour that I've looked only around 2%. So certainly some good news there and that maybe the storm wasn't as bad as something and expected it to be. Well. That's good news. So the National Hurricane Center called for strong, gusty winds and flooding ahead of the storm. How are the roads looking now in Connecticut? Yeah, So right now, there's actually a soft rain falling in Hartford, the capital. So as I was down in southeast Connecticut on the shoreline, uh, earlier today in the afternoon, it was actually sunny and the roads were dry so Now as it's moving through Connecticut. As I mentioned, there's a soft rain. It's moving into northwest Connecticut as we speak. But earlier today again, there was a lot of concern for flooding and the roads which have been saturated by a lot of rain this summer. We're right for flooding. It just didn't appear that There was the kind of widespread flooding that they were expecting, obviously not the widespread power outages that they were
Hurricane Henri Makes Landfall on Rhode Island
"Henry has weakened slightly to a tropical storm. It's still expected to be one of the worst storms New England has seen in about 30 years when it makes landfall later. Today, parts of Connecticut and Rhode Island have mandatory evacuations and over to the West in New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has declared a state of emergency for parts of the state, including New York City. That's where NPR's Jasmine Garcia is and she joins us now. Good morning, Jasmine. Good morning. So what is the extent of the damage so far? Well, the brunt of the storm hasn't hit yet, But the preview started Saturday night with intense rainfall and flooding. Here in New York City. We saw extremely heavy rain and flash flooding and as we move forward, the concern is also that high tides could lead to worse surges as the storm hits. Parts of southern New England are already getting tropical storm conditions and folks who are traveling should expect delays and cancellations and in New York several parts of the commuter system have been suspended. And you know, this storm came on pretty fast. As of last night, Various cities sponsored concerts were still happening as audiences got absolutely drenched and waited through some flooding to get back home. What's expected as Andre moves in closer Tens of millions in the region are under tropical storm warning. There's been mandatory evacuations in coastal areas across the eastern Seaboard, Connecticut and Rhode Island have asked folks to shelter in place. Residents are also being told to expect power outages as the storm hits so people sheltering in place should be prepared for that, and The National Guard in New York, Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island has been activated to help with any rescues and

The National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan Is a Total Moron
"One of the most unimpressive people ever to serve in. Government is a man by the name of jake sullivan. He thinks he's very smart because he's a rhode scholar and it's tucker carlson said on his show yesterday. We really can't find out what he's ever done that is meaningful except to go to school and he was pressed by i think. Savannah guthrie from nbc. Might not be here might have been somebody else asking. How did you guys screw this up. So terribly and he uses these kind of things. He's being very clever by using these long words by saying oh well yes we You're trying to circumvent the imminent threat by trying to use aerial reconnaissance. And by the ten second you realize this guy's a moron. This is the guy i forget the fact that they're corrupt and they actually want to preside over a completely different nation. Being ushered in the united states of america. Just not very smart. And they're so prideful and cocky. So jake sullivan is i think. He's the national security advisor. He's a total wimp. And the fact that jake sullivan is giving advice on her. United states military is rather horrifying.

"Rhode Island Chapter, and we're talking about the longest day one week from today Sunday, The 20th will be the summer solstice. It's the longest day of the year and a day that the Alzheimer's association wants to draw some attention and also raise some money to help folks fight out of the darkness of Alzheimer's. So Kate tell us about how this works now, basically on the longest day there, it's not a walk, or, you know an event for people to get together and and do anything specific. Basically, you pick your own activity. Yeah, So it's it's sort of a modern take on the do it yourself Type fundraiser and the reason why I say it's a modern taken. We have an app. We have a website. It's very easy for people to do what they love. Um I'll tell you what I'm doing. I'm Women 10 miles in my pool. Not all on Sunday. Um, but through the amounts of June. You know, when I looked and broke it down, it takes quite a while. Swim 10 miles in a in a pool, but and I've connected it to my Facebook and I'm asking people to make a donation. And I've been very successful up up to this point. And I hope, um, when I when I hit that 10 mile mark that people will celebrate with me, But so you can go to our website, which is a l d dot org Slash the longest day, Um and anybody can sign up to do a fundraiser or so if your love to bowl or you want to do a big scale, or have a lemonade stand or host an event. Um It's really easy because you don't have to worry about collecting checks and making out it all can be done online. So that's the modern twist on it. But the reason why we say doing something you love it, you know, with caregiving is the labor of love. And we talked a little bit about this before the show started. But, um, we want to shine a light on all of those caregivers and let them do something that they love character caregiving. It's hard when you're taking care of someone with Alzheimer's, and I know firsthand. Um that it it is a really The hours are law. We said the the the 36 Hour Day. It's even longer than that. You know when somebody when you're caring for somebody who has the disease, and they say they're hungry, and you make them breakfast, and they ate breakfast, and they're so thrilled and happy. And then an hour later. Can I have breakfast? Yes, that's hard for a caregiver. And how do you respond to that? And that's why the outcome is association is here. You know to talk about those things and give people support because it is frustrating. It does take a lot out of Those who are providing care. So we want to shine a light on those people myself included, who have or currently living, um as a caregiver or having in the past because we were all of A club. We never wanted to be a part of right. We are all um know what it's like. And I have a very dear friend of mine whose father passed away. Unfortunately. Um, from Covid. But he has leased state Alzheimer's last year, and before he passed away. She was taking care of him full time. And she said to me, Kate, you just don't know what to expect until you're in it. And when you're in it 24 hours seven days a week. And you can't escape it. We understand the the trial that people go through. So, um, to get involved to do something that you love like I love to swim or you love to bowl or play golf or my husband's riding his bike. Um, he's writing 100 Miles.

"Campaign by late summer. Seventeen seventy eight. The british forces in north america were mostly restricted to their major garrisons around new york city and quebec. The next largest force in north america was in and around newport rhode island back in seventeen seventy six. When general how had ordered his second in command general clinton to capture newport clinton had been upset because it removed him from the primary campaign in new jersey against washington's retreating continentals after capturing aquidneck island clinton went back to london to resign his commission. The king refused to accept his resignation and sent him back to new york city. The british garrison in newport then came under the command of general richard prescott. The continentals manage to kidnap. The general has discussed in episode one forty seven and the british sent general robert piggott to take his command in rhode island because the soldiers were needed elsewhere rhode island never really got enough soldiers to go on the offensive in new england instead they fortified equipment island and kept the waters around it as a port for the navy. Occasionally the americans in the surrounding areas would run minor raids against the island but this was really just harassment than the mission to kidnap general prescott. There was not really a whole lot. They could do actually retaking quick island without being able to control the waters around the island was just not possible in the spring of seventeen. Seventy eight general piggott if you british raids against the mainland which i described back in episode one eighty five but again those were day raids designed as a quick search and destroy mission to be over before the enemy could respond enforce these minor raids aside. The occupation was pretty much a standoff for nearly two years with the british in control of equipment island and the patriots controlling the surrounding mainland general pickett commanded between two and three thousand british regulars in henson's along with a handful of loyalist militia thrown in july. Just before the french fleet reached new york general clinton now. Commander forces in north america and operating out of new york sent an additional two thousand regulars to newport under the command of general richard prescott. Although prescott was returning to his old command the more senior general piggott remained in overall command at newport. A short time later clinton dispatched another two regiments passions. All of these reinforcements travelled by sea and arrived troop transports rounding out pits. Command were general francis smith and heche general friedrich wilhelm von loss.

Were there any kind of I said last question before but guess were there. Were there any tools that you're able to pull from conservatory or to pull from from acting conservatory. For music school or is there like sort of interdisciplinary tools. That you've pulled in stand up. I think all of those disciplines require just doing it and doing it and doing it. And so i think i probably wouldn't have stuck with stand up as long as i had you know in the beginning because i was really bad in the beginning you know had not come from other arts because i really you know with with cello. You just pick up the cello every day and you practice every day and you don't miss days and then stand up. It's kind of the same like you get whether you feel like it or not you just kinda grind it out. And so i think it's the The repetitive nature of all those arts kind of lends itself.

I just don't know now. I don't i've opted out. I don't feel bad about it. You know. Just i'm putting my energy to other things i just don't care you know. There are people who go like well you know you. Just don't pay any to just like you put it up if you like it and then whatever like people watch it. They watch it if they don't they don't like yeah but even people who say that i'm sure they look and go. Listen only got like a thousand lakes but then the other one got like one hundred thousand. So what's the difference in. what do i do. I need to start doing. More impressions like the second. I start feeling like do. I need to start doing more impressions like you're being ruined by like don't let it go let it go. There comes a point where you just have to say. What do i actually like doing. And not what do i.

You said to me earlier as you might just be very healthy. You might be healthy to do. Tiktok a callback press. I mean if we are actually at the point where we can say like you just do stuff because you like it's and even even honestly i do wonder because i find it very interesting like i i think. The intuitive like people would intuitively think like someone is a big audience on what on one platform. They have a big audience everywhere. But i think what we're learning is that the platforms are very platform specific like people who have big huge following. Those people don't always follow instagram. Who don't always follow them to tv. Who don't always like. Sometimes they do but if you have a big following on tiktok does that mean that you know a ten thousand people are going to show up at your comedy show and i don't think so but i don't know i don't think so either.

"Say this. Your great really weird so yeah and when did you shoot it. I july. Oh wow that was like that was really early on with everything. You didn't waste any time. Well yeah because we were initially supposed to do it. April as part of tribeca it was gonna be part of tribeca and the funny part. The joke on me part is that when they first brought it to me. I looked at the venue. We were gonna do the special in new york. And i told my manager like. I don't know the ceilings. Look a little high so good news. Is we take out the ceiling. Completely ceiling is the sky. Is that okay for you. Okay okay. i'm sorry. I didn't mean for the notes. You're so right though. I like the i think people who don't who don't really understand like all of the elements that really go into a comedy show like what really make a comedy show work and you're so right like tall ceilings are tough they're willing. You really need like kind of a low ceiling disorder just so all the jokes can just sorta skim off the seat just like create a little atmosphere but people but you don't want it to be like out in space that's great about that ogden club. the wise guys ogden club. The ceiling is pretty hot. Low on same with acme comedy club Pretty low ceiling. yeah. I often wonder if it has something to do with the fact that comedy like comedy should feel a little like a speakeasy in a way like. Oh what are we you know like. Sometimes when clubs are too nice it can be a little tough. Because i think there's i think that's why meltdown work because in the back of a comic book store like you know there were big posts in the middle of the room. The ceilings were super low. Like it shouldn't have. It was almost like snuck into this back room. And now we're telling jokes and yeah it feels how it feels more intimate like you feel like you're sharing an experience that's exactly right. Yeah and that's that can dissipate when you have like a really tall but it but you felt you feel good about like. When did you do the show. One time or two terms or how good at once and so. That was tough. You know because there are a few things. I will admit i wish i did differently but i'm sure that's normal. You know certain things. I think i wouldn't have done. Had it not been a drive in just a few. Little weird habits crept in where i was like. Why did i say that. Or why did i do that so i don't know i think i think it's a really cool thing because it will always be a time capsule of this moment. Yeah that's true. And i don't think a lot of other. I don't know how many other people did specials that way. But i can't imagine if anyone else that it was that many like it's going to be a real special thing. Yeah that makes me feel better known so again that i'm just i'm so impressed Because when i heard that When your name came into the show and she did this was like oh my god.

I'm so jealous of people who started an instrument when they were young because i started as a very grown adults and i find it thoroughly. I love it but it's very frustrating. You play more than one instrument. I forget. I mean. I play a guitar piano. You don't play trumpet. You know but that would be great. Why do think you okay. So one time. I saw you at At the meltdown trump. A joke now. I don't think so. I you must have been talking about guitar then or i mean you know who knows because that was such a fun loose room that there could have been like a trumpet just sitting. There could have been a trumpet prop. You know i'm thinking you said something about trumpet at some point but it might have just been that you're talking about an instrument wasting my time on the two wrong instruments and trumpet. Stand up trumpetist. Are there but deer trumpetist. Actually that's a really trump is trump is now trumpets.

"Yeah i feel. It does feel nice to perform. I just. I'm not good with downtime right now. I'm not good with that. I mean it is pretty impressive. That i am in total all the fact that you were able to continue writing continue performing shot a special like my my comedy brain. Just shut down. Because when i don't have shows coming up it's very hard for me to to feel motivated. And so everything. Just sort of like goes into screen saver mode you do anything online at all or did you. Just do your podcast. Answ yeah i did you do a lot of like zoom style shows in the beginning and then i got burnt-out i was like this just takes too much energy. I feel like i'm like shouting into like trying to reach them. And so i'm like leaning in shouting and it just didn't feel it didn't feel organic you now. I thought i was concerned that it would feel that way. And i watched a couple. I was like oh this is actually the commerce. Do a great job and then then run funchess said well he goes to pretend it's like those early open mic days and go. Oh my god. That's the perfect where you might get a reaction or maybe there's only a couple of people and you know but jackie does them all the time and she's doing great so i think some people are just really adept at adapting to it and i'm just i'm just a real fuddy-duddy about it i'm like i just need to be in a room with people i can't i. Don't i feel weird. Yeah it's definitely not the same and there's a delay you have to wait. You have to wait for the laugh to land jockey actually had a good note for me on that which she was like. You have to pretend and it is. It is sort of a fun theater of the mind exercise. She's like just pretend you're a big theater and you're waiting for the sound. Hit the back of the rue. Pretend i'm in a big theater instead of in my living room in their living rooms fund exercise where you wanna be well i you know i always thought i was. I really questions like well. Maybe i'm not a real comic because we'll come x. Need to be on stage all the time and honestly i love performing more than anything. But i'm also fine when i'm not doing it like i don't feel like oh man of freaking out i gotta get up there..

"To the coronavirus US unfold I wanted to start there because also kind of wanting to make the case that people were skeptical of American leadership and its utility including an America including particularly American left that. Now, here's why this matters and you know the story is essentially you get an outbreak in a distant place in this west Africa with a Bola in twenty fourteen. The world is always a bit slow to react to these things because it's not right in front of them. The world. Health Organization actually was one of those pieces of the world that was very slow to react to. They didn't want to declare this an emergency in part because the countries of West Africa. Emergency and Parkas in you that declaration would carry the stigma for their economy and we were falling behind and I described the briefing we got whereas essentially. From the Centers for Disease Control. If this is not checked, there will be millions of people who will die and there was a curve that look just like a hockey stick on this chart that looks a lot like the coronavirus crews come to live with. And Obama had to make a series of decisions. Okay. We'll take this on and we'll centrally be the captain of the team internationally here and we'll go in in west Africa, will send the US military which never been done before since several thousand years troops to build logistics, hubs, healthcare centers where we could get assistance in but also. Hubs that we go to other countries and say, okay, reach setup this massive infrastructure in west Africa can you send US doctors? Can you send US money? Can you send US nurses? Can you send US experts and it led to a situation where you know the UK took responsibility for Sierra Leone the US took responsibility for Liberia France took responsibility for Guinea and then a whole dozens of countries sent ten thousand healthcare workers to west Africa including Cubans and Chinese working alongside Americans and stamped out a bowl and two people in the United States died of a below and you know I think something like eleven thousand. The number wrong. But something in the tens of thousands died total, which is a tragedy of course, but the fraction of what could have happened. In, you didn't have to draw a comparison to Cova because we're. So hobbies nobody was coordinating response national governments were at odds with each other. The W was pushed into the background by the US instead of being held by the US, and there's GonNa Patchwork of response in New South. Got It right in. Brazil. Got It wrong and that's not how the world should function in twenty twenty world should should have habits of cooperation. The reality is. As strong as China's if the US is not the one trying to build collective action, it doesn't happen. I'm always interested when you're creating this podcast. Did you have a sense of who you wanted to hear it I suppose I'm thinking of say twenty-six team and this idea of the echo chamber where people are sort of trapped in these bubbles just hearing things they thought they knew kind of felt anyway do you think the idea of convincing across the lines if that's a fair way to put it? Is that happening more now or people more entrenched and you know what did you hope the? PODCAST would contribute to that. So to be totally honest like I, think we're more entrenched and frankly what I hope for the podcast right is what I've found is that the far right in the world is very organized. That is your common sources of funding they sure common media platforms they tell common stories like Victor. Bombardment. Putin Donald Trump I'll have very similar messages and it progresses people in the left just don't and I was hoping that this podcast could be a place to bring together. People in America and other parts of the world who feeling similar sense of unease and to see and hear themselves and the voices of the people that I have an in each your starts at the kind of a story of one person. But then it adds up to multiple voices. So the principle thing I was hoping to convert to the podcast is create that sense that there's an international community of people who are just really worked and they. They can feel sense of solidarity when they hear a voice in the UK or hungry or India if an American someone sounds just like that or American here. So what facebook did to Myanmar in terms of propagating disinformation that lead to violence? What's happened here might make more sense. So I wanted to thick in that sense of community and then I wanted to speak to audiences. I wanted people on the left in America who want to write off. American. Enroll in the world to appreciate that, hey, we don't. Then it's just going to be left to the Chinese Communist Party in Vladimir Putin, and hopefully if anybody on the right in this country stumbles upon it, but they'll find like this is a deeply patriotic podcast that someone from a progressive perspective can believe America is capable of being a force for good in the world and that cuts against. Kind of their cartoon character version of us. But I think that I'm not hopeful that you know frankly will reach a bunch of people on the ride and that's just the world we live in in my corner of that world in my view is more the mobilization of progressives than it is the dial across difference that needs to be happening but I'm probably not the best voice for that. I know that you know asking a to predict how the next few months will go. It's probably a bit of a fool's game but do you have any sense of what might unfold you confidence about what might happen connection to? I think you know unfortunately. I think it's more likely than not the Joe Biden win. I think it's likely that if he does win, they'll be some scenario where it's not immediately clear perhaps on election night because amount voting trump says it's Reagan. There's a few very uncomfortable days of figuring out how to legitimizes results. The one thing I am confident predicting unfortunately is it no Matter who wins there will be huge upheaval in the United States because if Joe Biden's all these people that trump has radicalized for four years or not going to go away. This is the biggest mistake that I think regrets make the risk of violence in the streets, the risk of these kind of underground white national groups, kind of radicalizing further conspiracy theorist Cunanan. I think that we're in for very bumpy ride five months, and if trump wins I think that there could be an explosion of social unrest to. So unfortunately, I think either way social unrest questions around American social cohesion are going to be very pronounced heading into next year. With Ben. Rhodes thank you very.

"The best argument I can make to those people and I'm probably closer to that on the spectrum that party the named Joe but is that Joe Biden is precisely because he's always at the center where the Party is. You guys have moved the Party so far to the left. Job is more running on a much more progressive platform. Rob Obama did eat so so. Take your success like. You, guys have won a lot of these fights and he will have to govern in a way that is responsive to that and you have more influence if you're trying to change Democratic Party than you will if you try to Bernadette. For eight years between two, thousand, nine and two, thousand seventeen Ben Rhodes served as deputy national security adviser to Barack. Obama. Invite time ideas of national security changed in tangible ways in the United States that tone having been set in the aftermath of the terrorist attacks in the US September the eleventh two, thousand and one which took the US to war in Afghanistan and in Iraq. During his tenure in the royal roads in the room curing some of the key moments of the Obama presidency. The attempts at dialogue with Iran, the normalization of relations with Cuba, the signing of the Paris climate accord the killing by US Navy seals Somma bin. Laden and the successful attempts to curb the Abo- zeke outbreaks on US soil. Rhodes began his work with Obama as a speechwriter on the then senators two thousand, eight presidential campaign, and he has over the years recounted many of those chapters of the storage political career as a writer, apart, Kosta and political commentator. His new podcast missing America aims to highlight and suggest remedies some of the effects of Donald Trump's first term in office I'm Thomas Lewis, and for the first episode of a special series of the US presidential election I sucked on with Ben Rhodes for the big interview. Ben Rhodes very warm welcome to the big interview just to begin on a very broad brush question. Bad. We are very close to election day if you to characterize the sort of state of the race with the tone of the race right now at the moment so far how would you describe it? Well, character the state of the race as totally unlike any election I've been involved in my life in the sense that Joe Biden is. Quite comfortably head. If you look at the public opinion surveys, he has bigger. Leeds Alabama had in two thousand and eight. When we ended up winning in a landslide however nobody is confident that it's possible to have a free and fair election in the United. States. In Two thousand, twenty governed by Donald Trump in. So it's election where Frankly the biggest challenge to abide and victory. May, just be whether it's at all possible to to to have a free and fair election and that is a new element. I'm aware of many friends in other countries you have to deal with that come election time, but that's a new phenomenon here in America? and. It seems as though that is I feel as though activism, the United States of course also has a different turn to this year as well. Given all of the upheavals that are still ongoing in the US. I've spoken to few activists who talked about the ways of they're pushing back can trying to hold people to account to ensure the systems are in place in a rigorous enough to ensure the election is is free fad you confident that that is enough The challenge in the United States with an election in particular is at the election system is set up an incredibly decentralized way. So it's not one election. It's fifty state elections, and then even in states they're all men are of more local election and studies. And the Republican Party for very long time has figured out how to hack that apparatus. The. Jim Crow laws enacted. To basically dig dig into places where Republicans have any degree power to prevent black people from voting prevent Martin's communities from voting, make it far easier for some people the vote than others. Now, we see obvious efforts to tamper with or de-legitimize mail and voting, which is very normal in the United States until now. So the problem activism is No matter how hard you try You can't plug every hole. You know you have to replicate that degree of activism in every state in every county in every city, and so there's always just that fear that where might there be a blind spot and if that is in an important state that can make the difference right and so yes, there's a higher degree of actors in than I've seen before but there's still sense of. Panic that that it might not be now. I'm what's your assessment? Of Joe Biden's campaign so far it's been a presidential campaign that no other candidates in political history in the US has had to run given the circumstances of this year what you make of how that campaigns being run. I'm do you think it's an effective one? In these final weeks before Election Day. Look it was always an unusual campaign is unusual that that he went from way behind to essentially locking up the Democratic nomination in a couple of weeks. Because people just decided like we cannot afford to take any chances in this election with a younger person or a more socialist person like Bernie like this idea get biden as an experienced well, lights decent guy everybody knows and is comfortable with. That that was kind of the rationale that led him to cola support because in native trump people felt that you couldn't take risk that same ethos is carried into the campaign through code which is. He should just demonstrate. Decency the fact that he'll hire the right people the fact that he'll kind of try to detoxify the American presidency in send that message in his come daily appearances, and in that sufficient in insofar as it becomes a referendum on trump, that's an advantage for Democrats trump wants to make it a referendum on. Hillary and Biden. His is not giving him the ammunition to do that I think the one challenge here when he has to close the deal is making more of a case about why him and what he's going to do. Rather than just discount drafting off the averages of trump and what he would do for an economy in the United States that has been battered by covert but already had an equities in what he would do to mobilize voting constituencies who care about things like climate change you know and he's beginning to do that but I think you'll need to do. More of that to close the deal here because people know intuitively that they should vote against trump but I think in order to risk losing them at the last minute you also have to make sure that they feel like they know why they're voting for Joe Biden spoken to a few during the process and at the stop, the primary process to. Some people who were supporting sanders similar supporting Elizabeth Warren Spitting. To some of them sort of very recently who seem to be still fairly suspicious of Joe Biden some of them some of them have said that when I can't possibly vote for Joe Biden. which is sort of as an aside to the processes struck me as. Quite surprising and maybe shocking to a certain degree as the narrative goes that seems to what happened in some parts. Henry Clinton. Last time around is that something you're hearing is that something that you think might be risk or is there a sense that there is a galvanizing of light? Well, Joe Biden might not be preferred.

Four hundred miles of winding shoreline are increasingly vulnerable to flooding so we're inland streams and rivers so the state is working to protect roads dams and water treatment plants that are at risk at the water rises.
