This is loren wise and the title of today's episode is exploring in engaging autism with dr todd. Peter levin todd tatas is. We're not doing this. Dr stuff are we know. Please don't please call todd. Thank thanks so much for having me. No i go by todd all over the place professionally and personally so i appreciate that. That's cool and it's a little bit more laid back okay. So we met. Let's just breaking the ice or breaking back the history here. We met nine thousand nine hundred eighty five correct. That can't camp frank a day in west. Brookfield massachusetts in a yeah. It was. That was the summer that we both turned. Eleven that we're both i. Would i remember it myself. Because i can't speak for you. Awkward lanky looking for socialization may be interested in girls and Stumbling miserably over ourselves but a great place to do that. I thought you know camping canoeing. Linda cabin it was awesome. I look back. And i found one of those photos that my wife saw it was like bothers is really short shorts. Unlike not only was it. An awkward timing was nineteen eighty five. Yeah and don't forget. Don't forget the tall socks socks pulled up to your knees with stripes. You know along the top part of it. That was a big move for me. Absolutely now i before we dig into him and and he's here for autism. He is a doctor. We're going to talk about the otherness. Podcast his podcast. It's in the process of production. But were you there and this is not a rumor. A boat blew up one summer. I was there when it happened. I didn't see it but lightning struck the lake and struck the boat and there was an explosion. Was that we in the same camp that year was that a year before a year later. Do you remember that it might know because that is definitely something i remember and my because you were there a few summers before me. And then i what happened was are overlapping. Ear was the first year. I was there in the last year. You were there. So there wasn't a boat explosion but was something almost as exciting. The you know the the fireworks on the fourth of july someone you know had a roman candle you know the the the basically the two that shoots balls at out and nailed someone in the face. Where the counselors. And i have no idea. Yeah that was. That was the excitement of eighty five. I think maybe was. I don't know if it was summer. But that was the most explosive in terms of flames. And and that sort of thing. I do remember. I hadn't picked up the drums at that point but there was a cabin. I think two or one up from ours and it was a guy with the way i remember. It was a white drum set and a whole bunch of us were inside and he was drumming. And i don't know again a month necessarily gonna say it was camp david. I remember just being in awe of this. This guy in this drum said and loud and rock and roll and i don't know maybe it was that summer camp and start for me. Yeah no i do remember it. It was yeah two cabins down. I guess it was empty and the guy had a drum set and he reminded me of sort of every eighties rocker. You would have any developing eighties rocker. I remember long blonde hair. You know terminator sunglasses. Some sort of cutoff t shirt. And he's a good guy too. So yeah i remember standing watching him and or hearing from like you know two hundred yards away or more because it was loud of course so and here's a little bit more of the irony. I'm always the one in most of my podcasts. When i talk to people about podcast say you know what dig in. Don't go into crazy stories too often. Don't talk about things that people can't necessarily relate to you. But i rarely have guests much less guests that i haven't really seen and the better part of thirty five years so i'm breaking my own rule here but the leading a little bit forward here we you added me on facebook and i guess i just accepted and didn't even put two and two together a little back before we connected in the fall right so that was going back a few years. I remember the name loren wiseman and you know as as we caught up you sort of picked up. I do remember quite a few things over the years. So i remembered hearing the name. See well reading the name seeing the photo in. Of course i wasn't gonna put two and two together and say that was definitely the kid i went to camp with but i said hey in the spirit of connectedness let's do it and then what transpired from there was reading about your work in authentic messaging brand messaging and sort of putting important things out there in ways that are about the about the authenticity authority. Not about kind of gone with the fads and stuff too. So that moment. are those your post. Plus my transition in life from where i was living in rhode island to cenex were important.

Cramer calls on U.S. to build factories to address chip shortage, unemployment

"As the pandemic gradually draws to a close. We've still got to national emergencies that we had to talk about a man money. A horrendously high unemployment rate and the semiconductor shorts is causing major problems for us manufacturing and competitiveness. We need more chips and we need more jobs so why. Kill two birds with one stone. It's time for our government to invest in building the biggest and best complex of semiconductor foundries. That's the factories in the world. And we can do this now. This kind of initiative went out of style decades ago but we know it works because the government just did it with operation warp speed the co vaccine program that got us to trick vaccines in less than a year. Were on a roll. Let's keep it. I don't need to explain. Employments national emergency but what south with the massive government back semiconductor foundry pro. Okay we just heard from general motors. They have all these new indian vehicles but they simply can't make them because they're sending books shortage and modern cars require a lot of tech ford said the same thing could cost them one to two billion this year bleed. You're gonna start hearing about this shortage. Constantly dan we the us really havoc with all sorts of industries and making us less competitive and perhaps even hostage country hostage to a bigger chip customer. The pr see. We got to get ahead of this. Now some of this shortages natural thanks to cova. We've got millions of new homes. That require a lot. Har- we're eating these chips like doritos at halftime. But some of you thanks to globalization are sitting been able to outsource their manufacturing most couple of huge asian operators taiwan's semi which is now the biggest samsung. These are both incredible mazing. Well run companies but they also get so production capacity that they have they hit the entire world including demand from china that hits american companies extra hard because new of our businesses run on just in time ordering. They don't want to sit in a lot of extra components it just by the chips when they need them. That's a quick way to make money save money until it's a shortage. Now that's where we find ourselves. Our companies can't get enough chips because there's not enough. Production were wide and that lack of chips is hurting all sorts of manufacturing including the formation. Gm and ford now. There are two ways to approaches. We can throw up our hands and baked samsung taiwan semi to build more plants. That's been our strategy or anywhere for that matter or we can roll up our sleeves. Like operation warp speed. Remember today when everyone get tested raw. Got javert here can roll up our sleeves and get this job done ourselves. If we're supposed to be the most powerful country in we'd be able to manufacture semiconductors for heaven's sake it's our industry so let me tell you what needs to happen. You might not know it. But america's best tech industry the most intellectual property that is anywhere in tech is in the semiconductor capital equipment space. That's lam research. Kelly tinker applied materials. They had machines that we need to make chips meaning while building gigantic simtek foundries can put more people to work and just about any other research project much more than a much than highway than a bridge. Why stop at roads and bridges and we re establish yourself as a whole new kingpin in manufacturing industry that used to dominate. And hey biden's pick for commerce secretary gina raimondo. She was a venture. Capitals governor of rhode island. I got into politics. She'd be the perfect champion for this project. We can take advantage of low interest rates to issue fifty year semiconductor savings bonds to raise the money for this project partner up with the private sector then. These businesses can pay back. uncle sam. Production gets rolling or chips. Defense ships all sorts of internet of things. Chips should be able to make this stuff domestically in the best in the world. Honestly it's insane. We outsource our semiconductor manufacturing to taiwan south korea. When they're within spitting distance of our biggest wattle china. I love taiwan. I love south korea but we ever get into a shooting war with the chinese. For heaven's sake they'll be right in the middle of it. Hopefully it never comes to that but why would even taking that chance. How much would this cost. We know semi spending up to twenty billion to boost its output. And they're very good at what they do. Let's say let's let's borrow one hundred billion dollars in savings bonds to make the us more semiconductor independent over the next few years but we have to start immediately to alleviate the shortage people intensive national imperative blueprint ready customer for the suppliers. Ready to help so soon. To be secretary raimondo. You've been on the show. Let's get the loan just chip ongoing going and put an end to this chip.

'We come from the stars': Indigenous astronomy, astronauts, and star stories

"When you think about the night sky what constellations come to mind. Chances are they're rooted in western astronomy but indigenous. Astronomy and scientific knowledge have been here for millennia. It's just not taught in schools or considered important within universities. My next guest is working to change. That nielsen is mick ma. And he's a professor in the department of astronomy and astrophysics at the university of toronto. Helping welcome thank you for having me. So how would you describe the way. Astronomy is typically taught in university course university of toronto's famous having a an astronomy course fifteen hundred students in it in that course generally starts from the early greek and roman astronomy aristotle type of plato pythagoras and they will channel through european astronomy with newton and cabrera hey and yohannes kepler and galileo of course the modern enshrinement is just one linear path from the romans to essentially neil degrasse tyson and today scientists. It's very very centered in the european model. And how have you been incorporating indigenous knowledge in your courses. I've been trying to do that little bit here. And there are courses tend to be quite full of material so adding new materials always a challenge. But i always want to make sure students come in and the first thing they see is not there. Expect a constellation. I don't him see a bear with the tail lakers major. I want them to see the constellation view. I nor a constellation of the bear or a punish shining relation that please and to recognize that these constellations reflect landover on i for in toronto or in new magi or anywhere and what is indigenous astronomy. And how do you define it. How is it or how old. I define indigenous astronomy. As being the the knowledge of the peoples of the land so and since burnett Nation state of canada would find it as the astronomers of the people that were here before settlers in colonizers so strongly of the astronomy of first nations big cree on astronaut and so on across across rhode island and every nation has their own perspective of the night skydrone interpretation in knowledge of it and so these indigenous astronomers speak to connection to the land and and to the people and that knowledge has been here as long as the people have been here and so is there a star story that comes to mind for you that gives an understanding of indigenous astronomy. Great story was the story of noon on the seven bird hunters which is a story so close your eyes and you're looking morni- guy and you see what we call the less the big dipper. And if you're looking at the big dipper couple of hours before dawn in spring you're gonna see the big dipper pointing downwards so the four stars make up the bear kind of facing downwards detail is climbing higher in the sky the four stars of the big dipper in the bull our immune the bear and then pours. What would be the handle. The big dipper are at the bird hunters and you go on those three stars to another four to get the seven hunters and the story starts by while you have to get up early in the morning a couple of hours before dawn to this constellation when we observe it at that time in the morning and we observed every day we can see the constellation circle around the sky. The constellation circles around sky every night as well. So we see the two different timescales in play but if we start in the spring at that to ask for dumb the bowl. The big dipper the bears pointing downwards. And that's when the bears waking up from tiber nation and decides hungry needs to go gather food as the bear leaves. The cave i robin spies upon the bear grabs it's bone arrow and size to chase it from hunt and the story continues through the summer when muniz running across the land so the constellations kinda flat across the sky and the birger chasing it as we get towards fall newness getting tired and stands likes to fight back so the constellations on one side again. Some of the birds have fallen below the horizon and must track the hunt but immune you and stands back robin fires. It's era a striking the immune in the heart killing it. Blood gets everywhere. All of robinhood flies into the tree shakes off the blood separate one stain on his chest. The leaves are now allred as a result. Chickeny joins robin. And they begin a celebration to cook the cook. The bear and to celebrate the feast harvest as we approach winter the constellation as the bears on his back again and reflecting the spirit of the baron sky and waiting for spring to come as part of the next cycle. So we see lots of different kinds. We have knowledge of the year as a calendar have knowledge of ritual and ceremony and we have connection with nature. So it's not just a shawny story. It's it's part of. It's a story that people in story of how to be.

"So. We know that there are real struggles in the fishing industry in New England. We know that that is part of the story behind the rise of Mari. Or Squid as you talked about it in this urgency to get squid into. Palo recipes and mainstream dining as a political observer which you are are you surprised today to see the New England fishing industry showing up in places like national conventions right now really is remarkable on both sides of the aisle and you know as a New England or on proud as someone who likes to fish a lot I think that's great that these issues are being highlighted on. It's tough though in a convention in A. Rhode Island shout-out during the roll call or three minute speech to really delve into these very complex issues in a meaningful way. But at the very least if it encourages people to you know read a little bit more ask more questions about these industries. I think that's only positive. Now you talk about this confluence of events, political events and business events that led to representative McNamara being in the position to try to push for a state an official state appetizer in Mari can you tell us a little bit about that at and was there controversy around? Housing legislation for an official state appetizer there was and that's what what in part got me. So interested in this story because this was not actually an easy legislative victory took time and convincing words political infighting chairman McNamara used some language under the godfather to describe what was going on and I spoke to him today we followed up because I wanted to check in with him and He's real excited about the publicity obviously that this continues to get. But at the time he had opposition not only from Republicans who thought this was silly legislation I think at the time they're only six in the legislature, but still and from from other lobby groups like the quaters you know. Who wanted that kind of representation to he had to remind them to know you're already the official state shellfish but but you know Calamar Squid deserves it's it's day in the sun too. So he had to convince his own legislative body to take seriously the add to convince Rhode Island voters as well who have as you know strong feelings Abou about their food culture and so there was actually a lot of controversy around whether this was serious whether this was going to be ultimately good for the squid. Indus. Industry. If it was going to punish other industries if this was going to help make Rhode Island look better or worse. There was a lot that went into this that you wouldn't. You wouldn't imagine with such a seemingly innocuous bill, but but it wasn't innocuous. So in our our last minute or so did it deliver I'm GonNa try another Pun did. And economy have legs now that it didn't before because of this push for the Calamari industry will yes or no? German macnamara would will tell you that it. It's been tremendous for Rhode Island tourism both in the wake of its passing, and later they've had Calamar festival that that's been very successful for the last five years minus because of COVID and he says demand has been up all the fishing vessels are are out He says that economically had their largest landing of sixty million square just the last year. And he said that the DNC shoutout got the Rhode Island Restaurant Industry the biggest biggest boost it's ever gotten from any kind of publicity campaign..

"And this is where it takes a weird turn right because it feels like the end of the story. That's not quite the end because you see the British authorities. Were still around. They're still very much in play and they decide will going to investigate this gusty affair and they open a case on June tenth seventeen seventy two and this case winds on for a year but it runs into a big problem despite the numerous people who who participated in the raid despite the many more people who watched the ship burn down and explode. No one said they knew anything and about what happened that night. who was involved how it happened? Nobody would roll. Nobody was snitch. Everybody knew nothing as soon as the British came around yeah and it wasn't even until America got independence from Britain that the real story came out right which is hilarious yes so here's the thing gasping affair we've heard about governor. Joseph Wanton he really was in hot water because he was a buddy of John. Brown and black sympathizer of of the plight of the colonists and the merchants right yeah he was in this rock and a hard place situation because governor Joseph wanted was also a wealthy merchant he he was friends with other wealthy merchants like John Brown a ringleader of the raid and he sympathized with people other merchants in the colony when like these British customs officials are just jerks. They're real heels. The are rude. They talk down to us a butts. I I don't want war with the British says governor ones so he appoint. He's appointed chairman of the Royal Commission of inquiry. He does his best to soft pedal. The the investigation to delay proceedings to kind of placate British authorities like we're doing the best we can. We'll update you etc and every body. Rhode Island is a united front. Nobody's GonNa Roll on these raiders and that is why the official finding of the committee it was. Are you ready. This was undertaken by persons unknown. I love that expression persons unknown just in general. It's just this kind of ultimate absolution of let it go. It's up there with mistakes. Were made mistakes were indeed made and you know we said one was kind of looked at as a sympathizer because he was POWs with with Brown and his family but at the same time when the American revolution did break out in seventeen seventy five he was branded. There's a loyalist because he didn't want war with Britain but he was actually a bit more neutral and that groundwork that he laid during the gas be affair sort of protected to him from the Patriots when all hell broke loose and they did not ransack his home as they would have with other governors yeah they were. They were pretty pretty much from what we can tell during the course of the war the Patriots and the Revolutionary Forces when it came to want and they pretty much told him to just stay out of it. You know what I mean. Mine Your Business don't get in our way and we won't get yours. Thanks for having b-actor they gas thing and it did play a huge. You'd roll the possibility that the gas be readers could be sent to Britain and tried for treason and given the death penalty really scared scared the colonist and rightly so they started forming what they called committees of correspondence these things became kind of shadow governments comments and in a very real way they were catalysts for what we call the American Revolution Today. There's one last note to this story for. Everybody worried about our buddy our pal the daughters he did survive. He had a close call. He did almost bleed to death but he was saved. He continued his naval career and eventually he died a rich happy old man in Scotland not too bad not too bad you you know there were there. Were a lot of hurt feelings. There was indeed a revolution but in this city televised the revolution was not televised at that point was podcast. Though at least probably there was a blog I think there was a blog that was also mainly based on recipes but to read the actual recipe. You had to go through this five to ten paragraphs story. Ah about what the recipe meant that's the worst and then you get to the show more and then it's a bunch of ads and then maybe under that you get the recipe but we digress this is kind of a parallel event to the Boston Tea Party in that it represented Rhode Island's. We've had it moment right yeah and there's this. There's something amazing to an inspirational about how communities can band together. You know to to enforce what they see as justice because anybody at any point could have turned around and given the British the evidence they needed for a species where three people have a hard time cooperating operating in general to have an entire community do that is impressive and astonishing. We hope that you enjoyed today's. Today's episode and we would like to hear from you.

"Holy smokes welcome to the show ridiculous historians stories. You could have been anywhere in the world today but you chose to be here and for that. We are grateful. My Name's Ben Man has no. Have you ever been to Rhode Island. I Have Multiple Multiple Times yeah I haven't it seems really small on the map that what's it like it is. It is very small. every time. I ve into Rhode Island has been driving through it so I've I've. I've stopped at places that were convenient along the road but I have not spent any time there. It's one of those places where you might you blink and you missed in Super Producer Casey peg. Have you ever been to Rhode Island. I have not I was just saying off. Mike that abandoned lot lightning bolt comes from Rhode Island and then I kind of associate them or Rhode Island with Rizzi and like all the cool stuff that came out of the Rhode Island School of designs right a lot of bands. turns out go art school. I David Byrne Right. Maybe I think Seth Macfarlane from Family Guy went to Rhode Island school designed did he really is Co.. Hog in Rhode Island. I think it is yes Rhode Island School of designer prestigious academic institution today story story for those of US following along at home is one one more notch requests when we're stepping our quest to do an episode about all all fifty states in the United States you see me years and years and years and years before the Rhode Island School of design existed there was something gene called the gas be affair this took place in Rhode Island and it's it's an historical incident of great importance and has some funny parts of this story but it's a story. That's unfamiliar to a lot of us in the modern. US It's sometimes regarded as what the first naval engagement of the American Revolution sometimes called Rhode Island's version of the Boston tea party right but what happened exactly the for I tell you what happened at some other notable risky alums. The entire talking heads winter is d. I knew it yeah but apparently David Byrne only made it like a year or something that makes sense. He's is to use too much of a Kook to follow the rules of an art institution and also we've got James Franco perfect perfect. Sam Hide member Sam High Dog Yeah Anyway. I'll tell you what happened. During the gas be affair so the ship question the gasp he was hot on the trail of the Hannah which was a smuggling ship from America and it ran aground off of the NAM quickpoint in Providence's Neringa Angus set bay. Wow that's a tough one. What do you think Ben Knanga set near Narragansett Boom. I'm going against the Narragansett Bay and that was on June the ninth you've so John Brown who's this American merchant. was not feeling good about British taxes on the things that he was selling so he he rode out to the gas with some other guys colonists and they took over the ship. They got rid of the crew and then they said these ship on fire when I say got rid of. I don't mean that they killed them. I just mean they escorted them off the vessel right so that's the that's the top level story story Ray. How did we get here. The action kind of begins brewing in seventeen sixty three as a consequence of the French and Indian Indian War England has gained control of Canada Florida and the land west to the Mississippi River to protect these territories. The British British need an army to you know they want position an army along the frontier it makes sense but it also requires some cold hard cash and because because the British crown doesn't want to have to foot the bill itself they go to the thirteen colonies of what would later become the United States and they say give us some scratch approach. The colonists say heck. No how dare you for two reasons first they said why are we going to pay for a an army on the boarder when the British won't let us settle in these new lands again they won't let us settle in Canada Florida lands west of the Mississippi and then they said second liar the British attempting to take more control over colonial trade after they had already let us operate with a somewhat free the hands for over a century right and then these taxes are getting past and seventeen sixty four people in the colonies. LANESE generally did not like paying taxes Rhode Island get super p owed about this because the taxes target commerce and this is a very small colony and other than the bay. They don't have a lot going on and there was this whole practice that you might have read about in history class called mercantilism where British colonies were required or th to only trade with England and there had been sort of a kind of have a grace period. I guess where folks in Port cities like Newport and Providence in Rhode Island had been making a fair amount of money and trading with partners from all over over the world now that was not going to be happening anymore so adding additional tax to this already kind of simmering situation of resentment. was not a good thing that's right and let's let's also paint the picture here. Rhode Island of this time is a lot more edgy than the Rhode Island of Modern Day. It's a notorious hi hole for smugglers and privateers and people are evading taxes left and right the British government are pretty much just attempting to enforce I the law granted it is a law that they made without much say-so from the colonist so they pass specifically the sugar act and then they bring six ships across the pond to enforce this act and one of these vessels vessel called the gas be the people of Rhode Island did not dig the enforcement of these new laws they attacked the HMS Saint John in in seventeen sixty four five years later they burn the HMS Liberty accustomed ship as it was in Newport harbor and by seventeen seventy due to the gas is a known problem in the Bay because they are almost working on commission they wanNA collect is much customer as much taxation as they can because they get a slice of the pie and a lot of this goes back to a guy named Lieutenant William Dunston. That's such a weird name. I was GONNA pronounce it yeah. He feels like it to me. I think so so he was the commander of the gasping and he was the one making the call to be as aggressive as the gasp. You was so once they've moved up into the Bait. His tactics really start getting on the colonists nerves. He is hunting. Everybody a ships from from the large merchant traders who sail across the ocean to really small traders who are just kind of going up the coastline even down to people who are just trying to make a living living catching fish. He's a real pill and they were even ordered to take supplies from farmers in the area without asking them they they were just stealing. It's not a good look. He was despised. He was universally despised rightly so this episode is brought to you by the Rolling Stone Charts Rolling Estonians the definitive outlet for all things music bringing you the latest news interviews and reviews rolling stone is your go-to source to learn everything about groundbreaking artists and now rolling stone is going even further to show you what it means to be on the rise introducing the rolling stone charts an interactive set of music charts that offer an in-depth in the moment view of the biggest songs albums and artists in music the rolling stone charts the definitive guide for trending breaking in popular music in the age of streaming his at rolling stone dot com slash charts or search. Rs Charts so yeah I mean and as time went on he kept using these really user is kind of mean spirited aggressive tactics and it kept riling up these colonists and it was really an untenable situation right. Yes even the governors of colonies route route to the British saying that the Gatsby crew was out of pocket. This is my one of my favorite parts. this goes back years. seventeen seventy two governor. Dr Joseph Wanton says that an addition to robbing the columnist harassing them they also insult the colonist with quote the the most abusive and continue milius language chase to Milius. I'm not familiar with that. Where but I think I will adopt that one for myself so is true. Yeah Con Chu L. E. S. T. U. M. E. L. I. O. U. S. and of course as a guy with the name like doodling Ston Dunston Dunston would do he refused and he kept this disruptive behavior going all throughout the Narragansett Bay and then on June ninth the gas beach chooses the wrong customer right they tried to.

"This is considered the most effective form of treatment for opioid addiction. But the vast majority of Americans with this disorder. Don't get these medications at this prison about ten percent of the inmates are on one of the therapy drugs foot. Group therapy is part of the program to and we sat in on a session in a classroom. We're only using the inmates first name, so they can speak frankly about illegal behavior ago teed Twenty-three-year-old named Ray is here for robbery he describes his experience arriving here a few years ago before this treatment program existed news, a rough detox, and so I was sick for good thirty days. You know, the physical aspect the mental aspect. I mean, I didn't get a good night's sleep for at least six months. There was no counseling when I came in. There was really nothing to Yuna. So and and told you to go to Chow every that's pretty typical of American prisons, a thirty nine year old man named Josh has a history of drug offenses and prison time going back years time wasted from my kids time wasted from my family time wasted from my life because the drugs pretty much every time, I gotta hair overdose repeatedly. You know? One real fear is that people will die of an overdose. Because there is this goes down when they're incarcerated do, you know, people who've lost their lives that way, many many absolutely very good friends. I had two very good friends. That's Kevin a man with a salt and pepper beard. He's serving time for shoplifting. Josh says he's seen the same thing. I had a close friend. I write in the other room. Yeah. Just a lot of people have quite a few right in my hands. It's it's a horrible thing. And does it seem to you like an avoidable thing like if there had been programs? Absolutely, absolutely. This program in Rhode Island costs two million dollars a year. That's money. The state could have used to improve schools or roads. So I asked Patricia Coyne fake the acting director of Rhode Island's department of corrections. What she says to skeptical politicians when they ask why this program is worth the money it saves people's lives. Sometimes there can be a negative attitude about whose lives, we're saving. But you know, everybody belongs to somebody. And so while they may have committed crime and deserve to be incarcerated, they're still human beings. And if we can keep people from dying. That's a good thing and early evidence shows that this program is keeping people from dying in the first six months of last year. Researchers saw a significant drop in overdose deaths. Among people recently released from prison, the prison systems medical director. Dr Jennifer Clarke believes this will actually save money in the long run. She says look who tends to die from overdoses. They are typically young many of them are young parents. So it's not just the. The life of the individual. It's the whole family. It's a whole community that's affected. So all analyses. That have been done have really shown that the money. We spend on treating people you save money in other areas of society when you look at the impact that this program has had in the last couple of years. Do you think it's something that every prison in every state all over the United States to do? Yes. Definitely without a doubt. And a lot of other states are interested corrections officials from around the country regularly. Come here to see how the program works one. Big piece of advice. The Rhode Island staff gives get the prison guards on board. Lauren Howard is a substance abuse coordinator here, and she's had to work closely with the security staff. They reaction was while you're going to bring in a medication that working real hard to keep out. So how did you overcome that? And that's a legitimate concern. We had to have meetings. We did a lot of talking. We did a lot of education. See a drug like. Doc zone. Is it self an opioid so inmates might take a pill? That's intended for treatment and sell it or give it to someone else..
