When Hartman died suddenly at the age of thirty nine was dark ski was devastated. Hartman's friends organized a memorial exhibit of his work, and then resort ski created his own tribute to Hartman a piano piece that portrayed ten artworks from the show called pictures at an exhibition. Quite, a few people have made orchestra versions of pictures at an exhibition. The best known one is by Maurice, Richard. Pictures at an exhibition starts off with that promenade which pops up several more times. Zarzusky meant it as strolling music to lead you through the gallery from one picture to the next. The first picture in Zork Skis Exhibition is a gnome actually it's a sketch for a nutcracker shaped like gnome sort of a Goblin who lives under the earth. then. The promenade leads to a painting of a very old castle from medieval times with a troubadour traveling singer outside it in reveals orchestration the saxophone is the instrument that plays the part of the troubadour. From there we promenade onto a picture of a nanny taking care of some kids playing in the twee gardens in Paris. Doesn't it sound like they're teasing each other and? Yeah Yeah. No promenade before the next picture, which is of a wagon with huge wheels the kind of wagon that was pulled by oxen. The title of the picture is bid low, which is Polish for Oscar. After the last of the promenades we come to the ballet of the unhatched chicks. Victor Hartman's designed for some ballet costumes in his sketch to people where egg outfits with bird head helmets but I think the music sounds more like they're running around like chickens with their heads cut off. Next to that picture repair of Pencil sketches of a rich man and a poor man, the rich one sounds pretty snooty. Roll. Along. In the poor man sounds like he's crying. Back to France for the next. Women Gossiping in the marketplace in the town of Moses. Then a couple of very creepy scenes I some catacombs, underground tombs full of old bones. It almost sounds like they're about to get up and walk around to the promenade tune doesn't it? The next bit creepy nece is a sketch for clock based on an old Russian fairy tale about a witch named Baba Yoga who supposedly lives in a scary hut that's perched on fouls or chickens legs. The very last picture in the exhibition is the designed Viktor. Hartmann entered in a competition to build a gate that would be the grand entrance to the city, of Kiev. If, the great gate of Kiev theme reminds you of the promenade. Now, you know where that strolling music was edited all along.

Clinton is describes his job as being a lobbyist for thirty million evangelicals. Thank you got floppy blonde hair blue eyes elastic sort of face. Growing up in the family farm his mom was a Kennedy Democrat and his dad was a Nixon Republican and so I was always the bridge builder the diplomat in college he protested against the Vietnam War but he also signed up for ROTC and when I marched on Saturdays, my anti-war friends through exodus. CIZEK enjoyed being the kind of person who could move between worlds listen to both sides. But he also felt confused about what he believed in, and so I came home from my third year college to work for college tuition and. I was invited by a friend to a Baptist Church. And I heard an alter call. It didn't know at the time even what an alter call was it actually what is integral where the preacher, the evangelist or the pastor says? Received Jesus Christ as your person saying if you don't. You're turning away. God. You're saying no. To the Creator. In one thousand, nine, hundred, ninety, two, when CISIC became an evangelical that did not mean subscribing to one political party voting Republican that would happen by the end of the decade. More than thirty million Evangelical Christians in America, we will come you governor Ronald Reagan. That's INCISA. Gets a job at the National Association of Evangelical 's It was clear that evangelicals were forced to be reckoned with you know opposing gay rights opposing abortion, but he wants to do more than the family values.

He was the guy who invited Reagan to speak my credit my street cred with this conservative group that I'd come to work for was established eventually sizing.

Washington, DC - Far-right plotters 'discussed kidnapping Virginia governor Ralph Northam'
"Breaking stories. Today We begin with a bizarre kidnapping plot involving Virginia's governor. In testimony today, an FBI agent detailed an alleged plot To kidnap Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer, and we're learning that anti government paramilitary groups reportedly also considered Ralph Northam as a target. Now his office has just released a statement that says the FBI alerted key members of the governor's security team about the threat, but that because of security protocols, neither the governor nor other members of his staff were informed about it. The statement goes on to say at no time was the governor or his family in any danger, and that enhanced security protocols have been in place and will remain. The FBI did not brief Governor Northam about any potential threat, according to a state official not authorized to speak publicly. But FBI special agent Richard Trask says Northam came up during a June meeting in Ohio attended by members of anti government groups from multiple states. They allegedly were upset by what they deemed uncontrolled power of Democratic governors related to the Corona virus. Pandemic and lockdowns. They discuss possible targets and kidnapping a sitting governor. Trash testified in the hearing to review evidence against six men accused of plotting to kid that Michigan governor Gretchen Whitmer. The investigation continues. Kristie King w T
Alaska's Saber Wolf
"Is Welcome to kids myths and Mysteries. I'm your host kid crumb today Mysteries of the Alaskan Wilderness when I began my research on the Alaskan triangle. I found there were so many months that I had to narrow it down to two categories vanishings and Monsters the monsters included the waheela were sabrewulf the Great Alaskan tiger the northern giant bear an acoustic on the vanishings were too numerous to track. So I went with the 1972 disappearance of then House Majority Leader Hale Boggs. Now a little history on Alaska wage. The largest state in the Union is twice the size of Texas 95% of which is uninhabited thousands of people vanish every year in Alaska since the state started keeping track in nineteen eighty-six over sixty thousand people of vanished all of the monsters in the vanishings have occurred in what is called the Alaskan triangle triangle goes from Anchorage to Juneau to Barrel wage. It makes a rather elongated triangle. I had my work cut out for me. So I started with the Hale Boggs who climbed into a twin engine Cessna 310 and flew out of Anchorage had it for June off. The plane was equipped with the latest tracking device in the pilot was considered one of the best and was known to be able to set a plane down in an emergency without injury to his passengers. At first. I am intrigued because twenty years later a plane on the same flight plan also vanished Without a Trace. However, I dismissed the bogs disappearance when I found out that he had made enemies with Richard Nixon and J Edgar Hoover and when the bogs case was reopened in the late nineties documents before and after he vanished were reviewed it became apparent that his disappearance may not have been an accident and this conclusion became even more suspect when it turned out that photos taken with infrared film from a special search plane had been removed from the case birth. So I dropped the vanishings to moved onto monsters at first. I scoffed at the idea of real monsters. I mean come on, but it was a town of Port walk and one of the monsters it made me a Believer. The town of portlock was essentially a fish processing Port conveniently-located fishing vessels brought in their catch, but the town was plagued with odd murders body of the missing were found dismembered in a manner that couldn't have been done by a bear our cat. There were also trackers and Hunters experienced from the town that ventured out and were never heard from again soon. People were leaving the town and The Cannery actually ran out of Manpower in the 1930s when incidents started to happen. Most of the Russian Elites actually moved out of the town for a year people running the Cannery basically begged their workers to come back and they set up armed guards for a short period of time tried to get their workers back in town. Monster or know people abandoned portlock in mass and it became a ghost town literally overnight. Well, one of the problems I ran into with my research is a few people I needed to hear from had computers. So there was no email and even less were interested in talking to me over the phone of the monsters one stood out the wahila of what the local call the sabrewulf. The reason for. This is a several years ago. I was researching Canada's nahanni Valley located in the Northwest Territories Deadman's Valley to be exact way. It was Untouched by the last ice age and was one of the last homes for the woolly mammoth and what the danai people called the wahila upon further research. I found that the native language of the danai is the same as the Navajo that live in the United States Southwest. I also discovered that their ancient oral history describes a gila the Navajo Nation actually home. An ancient charcoal sketch of the creature the last stop on that research was a complete skeleton of the wahila at a museum on the University of British Columbia Campus of the Alaskan triangle. There is certainly a lot of unexplored ground that could hide any number of unknown species and there is no end of local and Indigenous folklore about what I know without a doubt. It's just somewhere in that uninhabited ninety-five percent of the state of Alaska an animal lurks is science calls of a Gila and locals call a sabrewulf
Richard McSpadden from AOPA on how he got into aviation
"Where did your first interest in aviation start off? Yeah. It came really from my dad when my dad turned it was roughly in in his forties early forties. My mom gave him a present of a flight lesson off and he took that I was about high school college at the time. And he immediately took to it. He just loved it as my mom knew he would and I watched him go through that and saw the planning at the kitchen table and all that and I thought man that that looks like a lot of fun and he encouraged me through the years kind of nudge me to look at flying you thought I would enjoy it thought I would you know be good at it and I'm really thankful that he did that's kind of where it came a little bit late for me in life. But that's kind of where it came from that is a little bit later than most people we talked about. I one of my good friends in college that he was the same way. He entered ROTC with me and his whole goal was I think he wanted to be a lawyer in the Air Force song You Had a scholarship in for like English or something cuz you did really well in school and he decided that he thought this flying thing would be super cool. So 18 plus years later. He still find fighters on active duty package. So I think maybe there's something to it for those of you who are trying to go that route maybe delay that passion. I gotta do this. I gotta do this you won't put as much pressure on yourself and wage. Actually grow into a little bit better and next thing, you know, you're the you're the lead of the of the Thunderbirds. So we've us through just how you're active duty career piece together to get you to kind of where you are, New Jersey. Yeah. So I was ROTC like you were and came out of University of Georgia and went to Advanced Air Force Base in Enid Oklahoma and back that time, you know, you everybody flew to 37th and then everybody Flutie 38 sand somewhere in there. They would decide they had to be far qualified and they would take like whatever persuasion they would make that far qualified and if you made that cut you were able to choose what you want to go fly next. I think they do a lot differently now, but and then it was it was a pretty brutal process everybody knew your rank order of the class and that was publicized well known and they would put the airplanes up that were available and you know pilot number one in the class. What do you want and need to look at the list of all the classes and birth Take whatever class he wanted and our our airplane and then you know on the number two number two, what do you want? Right so through that process. I got very fortunate and I flew the F-15. That's the place. I really wanted to fly. And from there. I flew and kadena and came back and did Holloman Air Force Base for a long time was the F-15 demo pilot for a while really enjoyed that bath and then moved to the ranks. Like a lot of people went back to the schoolhouse top there in the F fifteen for a while fluid Langley for a while and then moved onto the Thousand Birds, you know about about the time. I I think I was an Ops officer at Tyndall and release came out about okay. It's time to hire a new round of Thunderbird pilots. And one of them this year's team lead position. If you're an operations officer and you meet all these calls and you're interested, you know, put your package in and so that's kind of you know in short where my career went. I did have that middle stint. You know when you're on active duty job. Want you to do the career broadening thing. Oh, yeah, and so, you know rightfully so my boss was really trying to look out for my career and he was pushing me to go to the Pentagon and take a staff to her and just thought he didn't want to do that. So I went and found my my own little assignment flying King airs in the Philippines and just had a ball doing that my wife and I went we were I was an assistant at a shame that we had three King airs in the Philippines at the time. So my job was to sort of manage that Fleet and be the chief sort of instructor of you know, the 06 has and the other people that would apply to King air bag and that was just an absolute ball. I just I can't say enough about the king you are and what a fantastic airplane that is you say stuff like that and that makes me go. Yeah, I I've had friends who've done similar type jobs, right and I always say man. I just I learned about all these things the day after I make a decision and go for something else. It's like every significant wage Yeah,
"The documentary chasing Coral premiered in July 2017 and it is a powerful film and since we've been talking about coral reef conservation at the shop thought it would be good to do a review of chasing Coral here on scuba Shack Radio. I watched it again a few days ago and it was just as impactful as the first time I saw. The documentary was conceived by Richard veevers who is currently CEO of the ocean agency. Richard worked at a top London advertising agency before he got involved with a passion on Ocean conservation. He was working on a project called Excel Caitlin Seaview survey regarding images of coral reefs that's where he started to understand the impacts of coral bleaching. Around this time. He watched a documentary called Chasing Ice produced by Jeff orloski and chasing Coral was born. I thought I'd give some key statistics on what it took to put together chasing Coral first. It took about three years to shoot over 500 hours of incredible underwater footage off. There were Thirty countries contributing to the documentary and more than 500 volunteers involved just an incredible effort. The film won the People's Choice Award for best documentary at the Sundance Film Festival and the 2018 Emmy for Outstanding nature documentary. Jeff Orlowski was originally from Staten Island, New York. He went to Stanford to study anthropology got into filmmaking and worked on the Extreme Ice survey that turned into Chase nice in 2009. He found it exposure Labs a production company focused on socially relevant issues. So chasing Coral is really about the quest to document with imagery a coral bleaching event. By reviewing what was happening at carries forward Reef in in the Florida Keys and at airport Reef in America Samoa. They determined that they would need to build a viable underwater time lapse camera. That's when they go to a company in Boulder. Colorado called view into the blue and they were going to build a housing. That would keep it self clean. It just so happens the exact Rego works at view Into the Blue. He describes himself as a coral nerd and becomes a main player in the documentary. With the cameras developed, they deploy to Hawaii Bermuda and the Bahamas and they put down their cameras and wait a couple months to get the images. It's a failure. The images are out of focus a lost opportunity. It's back to the drawing board to fix the problems before their next attempt. The next opportunity is on the Great Barrier Reef. They head out deploy their cameras and wait a large typhoon impacts their plans. So they read the place to another Island lizard Island, but they aren't able to take any of their special cameras the team needs to do time lapse manually that means going out every day setting up the camp exactly as before and getting the photos painstaking and exhausting after more than a hundred days. They complete the work over that timeframe. The coral has bleached died and his overgrown by algae Zack is extremely emotional at this incredible loss. It's crazy to think of water temperatures at 95° Fahrenheit, but that's what it was dead. Another team went to New Caledonia where they observed an amazing phenomenon fluorescent corals an attempt to Shield itself from the temperatures an amazing sight am amazing colors just before bleaching extremely sad to see the corals stunning last gasps. The documentary continues with Zach and Richard presenting their work at the international coral reef Symposium in Hawaii the time lapse photography of the coral reef dying over a two-month period of dramatic and overpowering the reaction of the attendees demonstrates the sadness. The film wraps up with Jack diving with one of his Heroes doctor Charlie Verona Pioneer in Coral research and conservation. They are diving on a beautiful unimpacted part of the reef off Charlie reflects back on maybe he didn't do enough. Maybe we all need to do more. Corals are being assaulted on many fronts not just climate change but pollution sunscreen and carelessness citizens are trying and we need our governments to act as well. Perhaps a new day is Dawning. If you haven't yet seen chasing Coral. You can find it on Netflix. Please find a time. You won't be disappointed. If you've already watched it believe me. It's worth watching again. We can't let them

"Spend a lot of time recently thinking about a man. I don't know much about. I don't know what he looked like. I Don I old he was. I don't know where he was born where he died. What I do know is his name Richard. He was enslaved and he was on last island in eighteen. Fifty six last island yield. Then yeah back. Then they spoke French in southern Louisiana and that island was about as far south as it got. Last island was a resort place. Where everybody who was anybody went for the cool salt breeze the wealthy of America save accuracy will go there in the summer to have balls parade down the promenade. Relax behind their leisure was a hand of slave power. That ran everything a little bit more about the man who own Richard. Thomas Mill was a Frenchman. He ran a sugar plantation out in the by you. Milton his family to their mansion last island that summer on August knife Saturday night they danced in the grand ballroom local hotel but on Sunday. Look down into the waves and felt the bracing winds approach. The storm was coming that night. The wind grew stronger. The science of last island panicked impact themselves into a hotel but Richard was worried. He tried to convince a master and his family leave their mansion and take shelter and stable but they refused the storms. I approached waves got higher and higher. The surge of water to storm pushed ahead of it race to the islet. It hit like a tidal wade through it. All Richard Brave the storm in a stable his only companion. That night was an old horse. The next morning the only building still standing last island was at stable rigid in the old horse. It made it. Many other. Folks aren't so lucky about half of the people known to be there died. Richard found his masters as daughter bleeding from a head wound and deliver her to safety. She was the only member of our family. On last island survive. As far as we know Ridge was the only person to enslave who survived Everything we know about Richard Comes from a newspaper interviewed daughter. He saved the story of last island became a sensation across America. Sensational in part because of who died in the eighteen fifty s southern Louisiana had the highest concentration of millionaires in the country last island hurricane and killed a lot of them the idea of doomed grand balls in final patterns of the Plantation Aristocracy and was also tragic and romantic. But I don't really care about that. I just can't stop thinking about Richard. The last island hurricane was a category four storm when it hit it's been called the first great storm in recorded history of Louisiana. It seems like every generation has won eighteen ninety three nineteen fifteen nineteen forty seven each with their stories and their myths each with Richards. The last big storm New Orleans Hurricane Betsy nineteen sixty five and then for forty years. It was quite turning into a monster of a store in the very angry seems to be taken responsibility from the Atlantic..

"There's much pointing in the opposite new in. No I guess the biggest threat would be you know we. We had a hundred years of economic and monetary policy prosperity to wear that all all the government's wrecking right and all of the central banks were acting right right but that seems very unlikely. Oh yeah does they're trying to. I don't know it seems like it's just a long road. Go from where we went to where we are now. And it's GonNa be crazier to see the mania when this thing touch twenty thousand again here in the next few years if you are. I can't believe it because not dead. So I don't know is just I. I can't imagine being in your shoes news and still holding it together for being this right. I guess that's what it is. Well I mean for me. Bitcoin is just a huge validation for libertarian philosophy. So that's kind of why I'm so so thrilled about it. And then you know the the new markets that it opens up the new business models making micro transactions actually actually possible. That's been a huge dream for a lot of people for a very long time. That's what really excites me. More than just the price going up a banking the under banks. I think people are still trying to do that. since you are looking at Hey payday loan people. That can't have a checking account. They get preyed upon quite a bit if you gotta go to check cashing place. The fees are ridiculous. If you you start getting payday loans the fees ridiculous. The interest rates are should be criminal I don't understand why they're not that it makes it puts you in a worse position than you were before hand. said there's no way could pave the original loans because it was so much unless you're really in a circumstance where it's the one off scenario of all. I'm actually going to have the money. I need to pay his back soon. Instead of I have no other options as the only thing I can do and I'm not going to have options for the future so I'm just going to be debt or make my life worse. Technology Ruin your credit so now you can never ever get a house you're stuck renting forever and that's just the. US Go ahead to now. Now I was gonNA find a question but now saying the. US like like we're all we have things going pretty well in terms of financial services within the US. It could be much better for sure. But there's a tremendous amount of places around the world. Since bitcoin is not jurisdictional that could potentially help. People will live their lives in a much more stable way or have access the services that they couldn't have access to to build businesses on a global scale. That all the stuff really really offers up. I think that's one of the main reasons. Why is that? It allows people to potentially pursue lives that they never would have been able to pursue beforehand and just based on being able to use his technology. Like it's it's a agree one of those things like imagine like your coder and some rural underprivileged area. There's no local market kit for you at all and if if you have access the Internet you may not have be able to get a bank account or any of the associated things so that people can why are you money or pay you appropriately but you can certainly provide services across the world just could never get paid for those services in any way that's useful to you but with with with crypto currencies. It's very easy to set up shop. Get paid in those currencies and make a substantial living with Relative to your local community and then give give back to the community with that their wealth or just provide for yourself and your family. Yeah definitely and there's services like Mechanical Turk where it's not not even really that technical is just if you use a computer and you can transcribe some stuff or follow basement strikes on you make money. Yeah Yep Mechanical Turk Turk now would onslaught of people you pay you. Pay Them to do simple tasks on the Internet and they will do simple tasks Internet for very large very small amounts of money in gist. Would counselors is a simple task. Fill out the survey I'd imagine they'd been employed to send emails or like certain types of comments or for I know one thing. It was a video imaging processing company that when the AI it was below a certain threshold they would send it to a mechanical Turk. So that for instance like they could the person the number thirty three on this picture von instead of dealing with what the I A confidence interval was so if it was below a certain threshold. Couldn't quite figure it out you would think batch to be kept Pushed it and then the result of go back to the end user wanting to know what number was in this picture. It's it's an unending amount of things you can do with Mega Turk because it's just people on computers doing whatever you ask them to. Can you fix we compete. Lets you okay. I don't think so I'm not planning anything I just. I wanted to know. What what are you asking that question for equality talk get fixed wikipedia pages or is that me? I don't mean fix says unlike a wikipedia pages broken fixes in like Vegas style. There's several things I need history to know forever. That's all I don't know where you're going with that one. I need history to know that Kim Kardashian is a porn star. I need to know things even back in that horse for out L.. Now it's been almost going on two decades damage.

Why did you decide to join because you spend you? Spent a decent amount of time in the slack contributing Guy Quality content to us and we definitely appreciate that. I would like to make sure that people though that it's a place people can't go to ask questions. Russians learn more and talk with other types of people. Like how did you. What made you decide to join? Ah Being on slack is probably the number one thing because I'm already on slack for work and and and other stuff so it was just one more channel to add. It's pretty easy. DISCHORD is kind of the same way for me. I hang out in a couple of different dischord channels But what really attracted me to. The conversation was just how knowledgeable eligible everyone is in that channel and how open you are to the talking to New People and trying to educate people in the space It's twitter under can be pretty toxic so I try to avoid that stuff and in general I I've really kept a low profile and I'm Kinda only coming out in the open. Just because as of the Mice Association with Sixteen Thirty Eight digital. It's you know it's in my interest now to the tell people my history whereas I was I could have been comfortable just staying on other radar Dr Indefinitely so this is really the first incentive to kind of you know shout out to the world. Hey I I once had a bunch of Bitcoin You know please please don't kidnap me once. I once had a bunch of bitcoin. Once they're a lesson in a boating accident there. We definitely appreciate the conversation you bring to the table. And and how non-inflammatory the conversations that's getting people to see like what it was like like back in the day and how it's changed and reasonable dialogue on where things can go how they work and so on and so forth is always welcome. Thanks thanks for bringing that as long as you don't go into that politics in there. I WANNA moderate right. You would have moderated politics show. I've muted. I don't even. I don't even participate in that channel. It's just I I think yeah. I went in there for or day and I was like yeah. I can't do that every day. I can't I can't stay away from it But yeah thanks for joining in the slag man is. It's a you're definitely helping out there and like you said if you're listening to this right now pool over your car please get a car accident. Join the Slack Channel Join the conversation. There's lots of really knowledgeable people in there from like wide like so many different disciplines winds on we all just Kinda come kicking in talk about all kinds of stuff so and more questions Richard It's what sells about anything you want. Shell tell us about sixteen thirty eight digital joining. Tell people like where to go. What's new things like that sure? Yeah sixteen thirty eight digital. It's the Blockchain Fund it's a two twenty fund to the management fee and twenty is the incentive. NFC So if we make your money then we keep twenty percent of that and We are partnered with Jim. And I and KRAKEN FOR CUSTODY Warren Everett for counting Trident. Trust for Legal compliance It's a it's a really great group of Local People that I've known for many years They they already had a previous fund that they made about four hundred percent for their investments Investors in a and that was really good timing mainly they got in around two thousand and then got out somewhere in November twenty eighteen and The they already had everything in place except for the technical stuff so they have the portfolio manager. They have the business the Steph Guy. They just really needed the technical stuff to help them evaluate coins other than Bitcoin. So that's where I come in and I try to help figure out how to these. Tokens Tokens accrue value. Which one of them make sense in? which ones are the scams? That's not an easy job because there's a lot of them now. Maybe not I take that back. It's pretty easy to spot things that aren't going to work very well or teamed can't provide it. Yeah I'd give him give him the trademark. All right man Do you you need anymore. no kidding intimidators less Can you describe bitcoin digital money Scottish. I'd say over time the ability of people to condense what Bitcoin is into a very few words has gotten way better way better. I remember we first question like we got like paragraphs paragraphs like no one could ever do it. It was impossible for anyone to say anything that was coherent in less than thirty words at now. Everyone's like it's digital money. What would you say? That's a good guess we're coalescing we're coalescing around a narrative as opposed to like whatever people see a future. I don't now yeah I look forward to the day where You know I go up and talk to someone and I'm like Oh you're using bitcoin. I love Bitcoin in there. Like Jeff I like money to like money. They're they just like what's the big deal. There's no dollar clubs. Yeah I guess that would be like when you're talking about. It's your kids so one day you'll like around before there wasn't bitcoin like around four money. What are you talking about GRANDPA? Shut the fuck up. It's very huma a semi. That's exactly what pasta to me. He was like why are you so crazy about money is just money and I was like not shut up old man the conversation it all right. Well thanks for stopping by.

"A Plan Adelaide. I really believe the Akkad fix the problem with teachers across this country. And I will tell you that it's actually a pretty a simple plan and in that is is imagine if we drew a line and we say this is the salary land for a brand new teacher sure and that salary land was the same anywhere else in the United States of America. The only difference between a teacher in West Virginia and a teacher California is obviously. There's a cost of living allowance. The you know you have to deal with because it's a lot more expensive in California than it is in West Virginia. But if you had a wine and the basic starting salary for a teacher with a bachelor's degree little high for master's degree would be this level and it's not the poverty land been. Maybe maybe we would keep our teachers in locations like West. Virginia that has a hard time maintaining -taining teachers in science technology English math Spanish. Things like that. Maybe they would be willing to stay here and live in the place where they grew grew up if we were able to actually pay them a decent salary you know we always you talked to lawyers and doctors and you say why do you make so much money. The the first thing they say is what I'm merit so much. Educate you know American salary because of my education but yet most teachers have a master's degree plus forty five and it's okay for them believing poverty. We can solve that problem and stop having teachers in areas where it's really hard to maintain teachers teachers. We can actually keep those teachers in those areas. You know right now. We got places around here where the Spanish teacher is. The assistant wrestling coach and God bless the assistant wrestling coach for stepping up to the plate. But the reason why he has to do that is because our actual Spanish instructor instructor so a little grass greener on the other side of the border and ran off the Ohio or Kentucky or Virginia. West Virginia's struggling greatly lightly and we need to make sure that we keep our teachers and of course West Virginia is always under attack in the education world. They're doing analogy the last legislative session and I guarantee they're going to try it again this one since the teachers strike. Do you think that more people in West Virginia have sort of woken up to the problem and understand the need to pay teachers better. I think that people do understand that. But you know so people have got to start really looking at these leadership and what I mean by that is at the end of the teachers strike. Our would have been my life. We were going to have a blue wave in West Virginia. That was gonNA take back the Senate the House we were GonNA absolutely go blue. Get in West Virginia. We didn't we didn't go blew it. All we went more red. You know we can pick up a couple of seats in the house. I mean in the Senate the House note because because we had a governor who absolutely at personally think is a horrible human being but our governor had a little event can't where he pulled all of the Republicans and handing all standing behind him and of course during the teacher strike everyone of those Republicans spoke negatively about the teachers teachers. They they told lies and send the teach- some of them say they were assaulted by teachers. They said that the the teachers destroying the restrooms in the in the capital. All kinds on stuff. They tried to do to paint the teachers in a negative light. So here we are getting ready to go into the mid terms and all the sudden. The governor has this event re the all all these Republicans standing behind him and all those Republicans all got anywhere from AC- to an AF. Most of them got F- ratings during tasers by the teachers rated everybody. I was the only one to get an a plus on the Senate side but yet all the other Republicans got APPs. Now they're standing in behind Jim Justice at Jim Justice. Says if you guys keep these people in office and you vote for him again i WanNa get you another pay raise and unfortunately really. Nobody thought we'd got a governor. That's about as underhanded as you can get if you WANNA know he's lying just look and see if he's lips. Removing because of his lips are moving that line but they fell for it and they reelected all these Republicans and then the the the legislative session started Jordan. And everybody's talking about going to be another pay raise for teachers. But they didn't tell the teachers that they were also GonNa Throw Charter schools into into that pay rates beal. So if you want to pay raise you also vote for charter. Schools Charter. Schools take away from public school and make no mistake about our public. Schools are already struggling as it is but now all of a sudden you're gonNA see charter schools public. Oh by the way one of the things that we're not stipulated in the charter school. Beal was that these legislators should not be a win win the medical marijuana B- oh come out part of that saying that anybody that was participating in voting was not allowed to benefit from medical cannabis. We couldn't go out and get licenses to do the growing throwing all this up which I'm fine with but they didn't do that for charter schools right now. You've got charter schools going in and who's owning. WHO's purchasing these schools some of these legislators? They're the ones that are going to.

"This SYS- Kelly with two brads talking politics. Part of the dumb cast family of podcasts. And I am today with Richard Ojeda. Hello Richard Doing Great Tower you. I'm doing great so I think a lot of people probably at least somewhat know who you are but maybe just to sort of set the stage for a little bit. Tell me a little a bit about Your your background your time in the State Senate in West Virginia well. I grew up in Logan County West. Virginia and I entered the military after graduation. I spent twenty four years in the military and I served with some of the most amazing leaders that I think Anyone could serve with and when I retired from the military I was absolutely devastated at what I saw when I returned home to the place that I grew up in and realize that that the leaders that I had served within the military were not like the leaders that I found when I got home and what I mean by that is i. I found a bunch of people that had their hand in the cookie jar. Making plenty of money while everybody else was struggling. There was a lot of things that you could tell. Were not being addressed. I though were serious issues so I decided to start challenging these folks and and that's what I did. I ran for state Senate at an and two days prior to winning my seat. I was lured away from a political gathering of from a person that wanted some bumperstickers and I ended up getting hit in the back of the head with a pipe and roll over when I was unconscious and they broke eight bones in my face with brass knuckles. They pretty much knew that that. If I didn't die on that Creek Bank would be the next state senator and two days later At one mass Senate race from the Emergency Room of Charleston Area Medical Medical Center as a state senator in my first legislative session. I was told to not even think of pushing the medical cannabis cannabis bill but I went ahead and told them that I could care less what they thought that. I thought this was something that the people of my state desperately needed and I got the people behind me and in my first legislative session I was able to make West Virginia. The twenty state to become legal for medical cannabis the very next legislative legislative session. It was my speech that lit the match on the teacher. Strike that spread across the country. So I'm very proud of the of the things games that I was able to do. While in a while as a state senator. I think that I was able to fight to get corrections not one but two pay raises. This and I brought a lot of things to light and I fought a lot of a pretty tough fights but these were things that needed to be a fought even though some of them are lost sometimes. Sometimes you have to steal get in the fight. Even if you know that you're a you're you know you're probably not one to come out victorious but you gotta you gotTa let people know that it's a fight that needs to be fought and so speaking of that you ran for Congress in twenty eighteen gene and although you didn't win the election you managed to swing that district quite alike. You talk a little bit about that. Well you know when we decided to run for Congress. RECE- We pretty much knew that it was going to be up. You'll battle it was like an are plus fifty four pretty much impossible for someone to run as a Democrat Democrat but like I said I think that you know it doesn't matter I'm used to being the underdog I've always been the underdog so we fought that battle and we were able to turn more red votes blue than any congressional race in the country. We were number one out of four hundred thirty. Five races is in turning red boats blue but we still lost because you know this was an area and the truth is is actually winning. I was up by seven points and then of course donald trump come down here and fired everybody back up again you know and I ended up losing the race but once again you know we we did everything right. You know my opponent. They kept her away from the microphone. There was a lot of things that were done. My medical records were stolen from the. Va a by people that worked at the Va.. So you know. We're in the middle of of that situation right now as well where the main person that stole. Medical records is actually goal. It is actually going to be sentenced in January. But you know we fought. We fought the good fight Sadly the next day after my congressional race Saluto Washington DC. And I was on a show called the he'll rising and a woman approached me and she said you don't know me but I work for the Republicans Looki- and she told me that it was her responsibility to keep my opponents out of the view and the eyes of anybody that had a microphone because they knew if if she actually spoke than people would not vote for so they kept her silenced and the only thing she ever did it was basically say I'll do whatever donald trump once and unfortunately in southern West Virginia. That's all it took to basically have people. Oh jump and caster votes towards her. So what do you think was sort of the the reason that you were successful in getting so many voters I flip like. What's the you know? I think when people think of West Virginia they think of this red state I grew up in Ohio and I think of West Virginia as a union unstaged should be a democratic state. So what what's going on there. Why why this sort of disconnect between what may be we think it should be in? How are you able to flip voters well first off? The Democrats had control of West Virginia for eighty some years. And I tell people all the time you know how come. The Democrats lost power because they sucked you know. Just because person says he's a Democrat doesn't mean he's truly Democrat when I ran for Congress and when I ran for Senate Iran because I'm a real Democrat it and when I say Real Democrat with that means is I want to take care of our elderly. I want to take care of our veterans veterans. If I want to send you someplace break you than it's my responsibility to fix you when you come home. I stand with unions. I believe that the working class citizens citizens deserve to have a seat at the table. Because of you don't have a secret to table then. The chances are you are on the menu. And that's a fact. We need to support unions with everything and I the top person they will fight right to work legislation to the day. I die and I also believe that a Democrat helps people who live in poverty to you. Elevate themselves out of poverty with a hand up not necessarily a handout. And that's what a real Democrat is the next what I preach when I go from point to point B. and and people see that and they know that I'm speaking the truth and that's why people are more in tune to listen to what I have to say because they know that it's from the heart Richard Trudeau Jetta never wants pushed one single beal as a state senator. The put a single penny in my pocket. It's not about that. That was not what my the plan was. When I become a state senator and unfortunately we have a lot of people in the state the run for office because they look at it as nothing more than an the annual paycheck? And that's not what we need in West. Virginia we are struggling state that needs real leadership to step up and put West Virginia on a decent path. And Right now we've had nothing but people who have been all too willing to roll over and sale our state to the highest bidder. And that's got to stop so I saw that you had talked about a proposal. That lobbyists should have body cameras on.

I mean you guys is out there watching me from all over actually the world. We're getting people from Australia now and New Zealand. Gosh what happened in New Zealand with with volcanoes just so horrible but We're getting people from everywhere and every community has places of a over charities that you can Donate money to or if you can't tell me donate money. You can donate time. You know. It's it's it's something it if you can make time it's just it's the Pe- people are need and you know. We are all part of the Universal Energy of Oneness. We're all brothers and sisters and it doesn't matter what race we are what religion we are. We're we're all one of humanity and and and it. It's really important to try to help our fellow man because I don't know our worlds like just so it's it's just it's there's so much stress right now in our world I mean I I noticed that so. Many of my clients are more stress us than ever because of what's going on with the government and the impeachment and it you know it's just devastating and and so there there's higher stuff's levels so I noticed that this year people started celebrating Christmas at Halloween time. They needed it. We need it. Yeah we all we. We need a little Christmas Berry Yeah it it's It's really sad. It's it's it's devastating so Well I may add living with Tony Right now because has richards on his way and I'm sure he's trying to find a parking space because I could barely find a parking space when I was out there but we're going to talk about the Angel Food Project but you know now I am going to take callers today or it has got the phone lines are already full so keep keep trying to get in if you if you can't get through. Wow that's nice at the phone lines are full. Thank you guys for calling in. We had some good callers last week. Did you good good. Good good good. We always have good callers and then I also think that it's hard for people because they don't know how to think on their feet and they're looking for or one person for me to talk about instead of being open minded about everybody take call that what Psychic Amnesia were. Yeah they called Psychic Amnesia. But it's almost like doc. I'm going through the alphabet. ABC But you know but finally got this ladies Friend who crossed over over. But it's sad because her I don't know if it was our steps on her son. Somebody crossed over like at an untimely death. And it's it's just so hard and especially around this time of year you gotTa Miss Your Mom Oh Oh oh totally like. I said even though I was in Brazil on my fiftieth birthday birthday birthday -TUNI- but it was over. Thank you Dr who needs enemies. You really look like you're thirty nine. I get that also I got thirty eight thirty seven thirty nine you do you. You have no wrinkles. You're gorgeous I think you know and some of my husband Char's flirting with me. Yeah right But no I I missed. I missed her. Not Calling me on my birth. My Fiftieth Birthday. Especially because you you know she'd always call me and singing happy birthday. She was your first. How Yeah Right? Of course her first personnel here. I'm sure to hear her voice but yeah she always called them birthday and to sing me. Sing me matures. There's a lot of listeners out there now who are thinking about the holidays and thinking thinking about how they miss their parents their siblings their child whoever's crossed over the beauty about what we do though is that we know there's a spirit world and we know that we can communicate with them again and we know that they're only thought away. Oh Yeah I think signs You know I remember you telling me a looking to look for like butterflies and I've it's like especially in Brazil I saw in Brazil. Yeah I definitely saw crazy And you know I talked to her all time. I still talk sure it's good. It's it's important to talk to them because because the more we acknowledge them the more power gives them to acknowledge us uh-huh and to give us signs in. They learn to use their energy to connect with us because he's only been gone a little over a year so in eternal time. That's nothing the only other thing I've noticed a lot of people crossover to the spirit. World around December somber. Does she was November. Like either December or January. It's like I don't know y but you find a lot of people crossing over at this time. My mom did my mom over on December twenty first at at Grandma's birthday. That was your grandma's birthday. Well it was my mom's birthday into the spirit world and that was in one thousand nine hundred nine. Wow twenty years and there's a day that that goes by that I I I every day I think about her. Yeah I mean for me like you said it and I still pray for my mom and Dad I absolutely really do you know when we do the white light in the mirror. Dag I totally still pray for my loved ones in the spirit world because you WANNA make sure that they're still full thriving in a positive energy right that makes sense. Yeah they need as much as we do they do they do but they have the ability to help guide us and tell us things. In fact. I had a very vivid dream about about my mother this week. Really like a dream during a daydream or not say.

"First foremost I just want to say Richard. I don't think this this nervous to interview somebody. I've never owned a copy of someone's book for twenty years and then brought it to the interview to be signed. This is a first for me so I just WanNa say you know you're almost for me. A mythical figure and I've enjoyed listening to you over the years because you're sort of quite funny last night I I thought Oh. I'll revisit one of the SAM. Richard Live podcasts. And you're so funny and if you don't mind I'd like to. I make you a human before we talk about all your accomplish -CCOMPLISH work and your viewpoints on everything I see. You are a human in front of me according to a mythical figure they feel rather in your right Sirkin unethical do you watch. TV shows do you favorite TV shows. I I watch the recordings on net flicks and things like that. Yeah yeah same. Did you've been shows. Yes yes I binged Stephen Fry because I was giving him. I think all the Richard Dawkins award which which we give every year and this year. I binged injured Ricky Jehovah's for exactly the same reason And I love them both. Always opposite to each other in Stephen Fry's of Bain and cultivated rickie is kind of beyond the pale in many respects Equally funny I did not see the fry one but we loved the as one and obviously he is a brother in arms in the Kinda theus as well. Yeah he does a very good job of been honest stating his point of view and then putting a real nice comedic emetic spin on it. So it's Kinda digestible spoons. Full of sugar approach precisely right exactly what he does. Okay good so you watch television. Also you have a very unique childhood hood in that you were born in Kenya's do I have that correct. Yes it's not so unique for British people of my age. Actually if pretty common in where I went to school it seemed like about half. The boys are born in Africa or India. Oh really is for the younger listeners and myself truly that only exists the kind of colonial. Oh Africa that only exists in hemingway books or you know it's kind of a bygone era. Yes and it went gone very suddenly as well disappeared very quickly. Oh Oh really kind of overnight. Now what precipitated that I think just change Harold. McMillan called the wind of change. It was just a very very swift political movement. Yeah ah mean rather analogous to the way the gay movement in this country with very very swiftly transformed things turn things upside down in historical view. It happened in one and second. Yes right that's what we're hoping to do with atheism. I mean that because the present atheists are not able to enjoy food hold membership of society. Really they can't get it get elected. It's very difficult to get elected. And what we're hoping is that we can emulate the gay community you did and almost overnight historical terms transform things one hurdle I can immediately imagine is that there is a built-in sympathy for a group. That is so obviously excommunicated and it comes with such a price tag on the familial relationships and same with the civil rights movements that I've never seen atheist blasted the streets with fire hoses so we lack a little bit of sympathy. Does that get in our away with. It would be nice to think we get sympathy. I think we would get sympathy but for the extraordinary bizarre idea that you need to believe in a higher power in order to to be good and this rather dramatically shows itself in the fact that they don't mind whether it's wrong guard right as long as any God will do If you morality morality yeah when you think of anyone who currently is spending a great deal time in Church or dedicating a big portion of their life to their chosen religion all of them currently would look back on the Greeks in just laugh at the notion of Zeus and someone taking a chariot and rising the sun and that becomes very laughable and dismissable and yet that same ones can't really be applied to their own that's right. I've sometimes asked ancient historians in my college college at Oxford whether the Greeks really did believe in their gods the seems to be yes or at least they were sacrificed to the and they would pray to them And they would attribute misfortune or fortune to them whether they really believe there was a god called Helius who actually got up in the morning and drove of his chariot across the sky. I find that actually pretty hard to believe especially when you consider that simultaneous to that you're seeing the birth of democracy the birth of geometry. You're seeing like enormous leaps forward in the foundation of what is now science. Yeah yes of whether Plato and Aristotle really believed in I mean they talked about the gods but I suspect it may be somewhat in the same sort of way as Einstein. Yeah didn't believe in God but he used God language as a kind of metaphor for that which we don't understand and so when socrates you said something like do morals come from the gods the gods cover them worldwide if it was yeah. I'm not sure he really meant the gods where he was just using kind of language that his audience would understand Dan. Yeah I completely agree with. It is funny because you'll see people. co-opt Einstein quotes to serve whatever. And they have right. I would like to go back and shake Einstein and say why did you do that handing people on the plate. They they desperately wanted to hear but do you think he just maybe had a broader global view of like. That's that's not the thing I need to disrupt right now. That's not the hill. I'm going to die on so I'm just GONNA kite up placate or patronise the masses. I haven't read enough to know I think maybe times different and maybe didn't actually occur to him that it wouldn't matter that although he did get very annoyed at times when he would say I I do not believe in a personal and Gordon I said over and over again. He did actually get quite irritated sometimes but I think he only had himself to blame. Yeah now back to Africa Growing up there were you in his city or what kind of environment where you're not in a city with hardly wearing cities it was fairly primitive in some respects next. We have no electric light. We had no indoor plumbing on the other hand we had lots of servants okay and so it was sort of curious mixture. It's like going back hundred years. Yeah so your memories mostly just like going to school and going to catching butterflies beautiful flowers. Yeah but I didn't see elephants or lands or anything like that right for me. I just go. Oh if a guy grows up in Africa not shocking to me that he ends up with an interest in zoology in evolution is to think that I think that's unfortunately the truth. My father was a biologist so I think later on moved to England. I think he taught me to think like a scientist and think like a biologist but no the African childhood was. It just didn't really feed it. I think to what later became in a big way and did you have any awareness that you were an ex pat or living in a country that if not your origin. was that something you were conscious. I left when I was seven so I'm not sure that unless I was very precocious I would have thought in those terms because you round. These is your reality right. You kind of take it up. Yeah he's value. When you're young? Yes yes so. You moved to England at seven or eight depending on whether I believe you. Or what's it's written about my eighth birthday on the ship. Oh no kidding so both true really and so your father had served in World War Two and then he inherited in a state. That's right in one thousand forty six years. She inherited it but assume that he would never actually live there. It was tenants did and the lady who was the tenant died actually while we were on the ship and he may perhaps on your birthday and my parents were greeted with the news that she had died and they then had to make a decision whether to go back to Africa which they wanted to do originally agonizing nothing. They decided they would stay. My mother ahead soften very badly for malaria and almost died. And I think that was another reason for not going back. Yeah but the family lawyer and both their parents. It's both sets of grandparents. Strongly advised them to go back to Africa and they didn't take that advice they actually found the place. It hadn't been found for longtime properly. Yeah my my father made quite a success of it as a proper commercial thumb. A lot of these estates get passed down in a lot of people live quite poor in these amazing estates and just everything is spent on maintaining them and it can be a real burden to inherit low that I mean the word estate or rather give a full impression. It's not biggest date like okay do something instead of just Downton Abbey playing in my head just honest with Seoul wrong. I know it's early about two hundred and fifty acres and in-home wasn't outragous on it. There's a big issue house which was a bird. Actually family lawyer advised her to pull that down right. And and my parents didn't actually touch it into flats apartments. Oh and They specialized in English people. British people coming back on leave from the colonial service constantly filled with people from Africa and India Erin. bummer places is like a decompression chamber and getting back in England. Right yes yeah. They had to have been intoxicated with the notion of being out as like people who went westerly here or anything else right as a very adventurous lifestyle I suppose hose yes but of course it was very much government regulated. Were they were pioneers. In that sense that the earlier people went out to farm the settlers close. They've quite different. They were more like pioneers but my parents were not they were government servants and the people they mixed with the government servants right so they were they were. We're not part of the sort of happy valley crowd they knew. Some of that crowd You were raised Christian in. I went to Christian schools. It was difficult not to write but it was Anglican in and I would imagine in part because father was into science in biology in. Did you have a good relationship. Asian trip with him. Did you want her to be proud of you. And yes I had a very good relationship with him. He was the buffs in it so he knew all about wildflowers. In New the letter names my sister and I love to here. The Latin names of all the closet didn't remember them necessarily but yeah any children liked to hear long words they don't know the meaning of maybe wrong about that. Oh absolutely we'll think Expeditious Doses California. Everyone loves that word means nothing so long. Now I would imagine when you're being educated. You're probably you knew Latin or you do. Do you did lesson for years. It doesn't mean on new it. Do you think it's good or bad that they've abandoned that I think it's good to learn. Language is is a time would be probably better spent learning French and German somewhere. You could go use it. Yeah yes I mean. People say that Latin is good for learning old Romance Romance Languages and no doubt it is but I suspect that any romance language would serve that purpose in Spanish would be good for learning Italian. French and friends will be good for leading Italian Spanish and so on. Yeah Yeah so a romance language would be a very good idea. A GERMANIC language would be a very good idea. I am ashamed of the British and actually American. We Anglos we. English speakers are so bad at languages. Oh Yeah and when I go to places like Holland and Scandinavia and in a even bus drivers and Tenders Speak Perfect English. Yeah we'll all get real judgmental of US and feel pretty bad about the whole ordeal and then then another side of my brain goes. That's just the privilege of the hegemonic society. Germans were the hegemonic society. They probably wouldn't know any other. Do you think maybe some four the true I think that is. I don't think we're shittier. The people in general doesn't got shows itself though in arrogance the thing we didn't need to learn. I had a colleague when when I said I was trying to learn German. He said Oh you don't want to do that. The only encourages them..
"richard. it" Discussed on Another Name For Every Thing with Richard Rohr
"The photographs the desperate notes peel your own image from the mirror. It's just an image sit in feast on your life. I don't know if he wrote the close to his own death. But it sounds like an end of life poem. Where there's been this. Absolute acceptance of the self, and as I say in my commentary, I probably should not have added this. I hope this book has helped you to experience and to know that the Christ you and the stranger that he speaks of in. This poem are all looking out with the same set of eyes. But you only know that at the end of your life. The God's eyes are not other than yours and your eyes when they're doing right are not other than gods. And so grateful that you added that line actually really for me brought the whole book home. Oh, good makes me happy. Yeah. He had just. And I think he just came to my talks because I was the only thing happening in town. But I remember meeting fellow very pastoral way to end with these practices, which are just so much of being and receiving and participate in the trinity. I think pretty with of the mirror me, and then to end with that poem. It felt like that was your mic drop just the lasting wasn't just you're making me happy. Those things hit you in that way. So Richard it's been such a treat for us to be able to walk through the universal Christ with even in this way. And you've been so gracious to be gracious with our questions and our. Good. And knowing that sometimes it's a roundabout way of talking about the big things that you already know what I'm going to say we need to say. Yeah. I mean, there's been a lot of folks who've taken his journey with all of us through this book in this way. What do you what do you hope for those who have been with us? Whether it's doing the dishes and listen to it or they're on a run or in their car. What do you hope they take away and walk away with as they try to integrates from this into their life? You know, I don't know why comes to mind the line for more cuts poem, take the image down from the mirror and feast on your life that God has come to you disguised as your life. As polity RC says that there's no big ideal moral achievement that you must achieve and the irony is that radical self acceptance that accepting that you are accepted. Will paradoxically probably allow you to do some very generative sacrificial can use the word carrying things for our world. But you'll know now that it's coming through you as a flow not as a self initiated generosity. So that's incarnation come to its full conclusion when I know that I am the image of God. And I put together you Manitou and divinity in my feeble life, just like Jesus did. What else would the file state of incarnation b? Yeah. So I if this book even chapter of has that the beginnings of that affect for anybody. I will be extremely grateful because I think as I look at our culture, and I've taught in especially western Europe. But the rest of the world to I see a you manage. That is burdened with lack of self esteem. Just to take a thousand faces but human beings who think they're nothing and are trying to overcompensate in the.

You know, I've been taught about three my faith. So I I almost felt like I was a real disappointment only to my parents also in that relationship with goatee. Now, the I was almost kind of letting go down so thing I wasn't right or I was normal. I I think the faith was was very very important possible as a Muslim, you know, I I. find that you can draw tremendous strength and uncertainty from belief. By didn't feel strong that I felt so terribly confused on very very conflicted Rayleigh. And I guess because of my faith I tried to hide my sexual and emotional identity ASO when it was guy. I tried to pretend it wasn't. There was kind of hoping it would go away. It seems to just kind of be the so you obviously had it for some time. What point in your life? Did it change?

More people more different. You're allowed to be different. So I was kind of hanging out with some of the Goths and the MOS and the and the rockets as well, they were they stood out.

Because I thought you know, were rather than kind of try and be accepted and super except by one around me, perhaps, you know, it's okay to kind of be different answer to kinda stand down. So they opened more. They accepted me. They really accepted me for being into the kind of music and into the kind of styles of clothes and stuff. I guess that was around the time of little, you know, I could probably maybe some thin. I could probably kind of like see how that goes down with them because the quite a few pounds, then in which, you know, some of the lead singers excetera where what queer in some way by or they were, you know, the guy, and you know, like that lots of people who were today for Bowie on he was like, you know, he was openly bisexual and. I'm very so the bands like Judas priest lead singer was gay. Find your tribe. But it wasn't necessary gay try before new chime three music. Yeah. Yeah. It was important. You know, like those that anti-establishment words that they'd sing about excetera. I thought, you know, well, I'm trying so hard to be part of the establishment. But this option don't even accept to. I am. So I came out so couple of mates, and they were really good that they we gray at a kind of accept today. They thought it was quite cool.

"If you'll life. I'm Emma goes swell. It's time now to from Richard. Well, I sort of knew I was different about the age of seven. The was this real feeling. I kind of like heart touch -ment with the boys. It certainly wasn't sexual at any way shape or form an emotional attachments. And I kind of this strong sense that you know, I was kinda different from the kids because of the way I felt on remember seeing I'm not sure what TV show it was.

I just every instinct told me to keep it quiet because people would understand people wouldn't get it. It's almost like it was like something that fell so not true to meter have to hide whether other people getting bulletins, the problem is literally people saying things, I think what was happening with some of the boys in schools that they were being called names. So like, they would be called to female names, and those female names were kind of casting aspersions to the. Sort of sexual identity United so still at home, I was homo and queer and bans and that kind of stuff is being used on the playground.

I didn't want to stick out from from the ordinary, and the main reason for that is because you know, a guy both my parents are from the east coast of Africa.
