"He made not just tens of millions of dollars, but he made hundreds of millions of dollars. The kinds of money that was available and he had in his back pocket was 10 times the size of the entire state budget. In California. There are many ways to kind of look at this. But at the very, very, very least, you have to acknowledge that Stanford was at least and I would argue a little bit. Move her important down the fabled East Coast titans that we do read so much about and being a California and you forgive me. But I think most of us out here would probably suspected a lot of that has to do it by the East Coast media dominance that only is beginning to be recognized. I think back there This may be true of a lot of robber barons. But you you kind of argue that Stanford was not so much an immoral person Hey, was a bad and a person who believed all sorts of bad things so much as he was an Amoral person. He really just believed whatever was good for him that day or that hour, that shit that you asked him. Why do you make that distinction? That maybe not immoral, but But aim world? Yeah. My distinction on that one. Here is a guy who did have a standard one standard in his life, and it was his family. He was absolutely devoted to his family. I think the creation of Stanford University is a memorial to his dead son speaks to that when he was speaking to President Elliot at Harvard. He told him explicitly. He wanted to create something that would keep his wife not only engaged but productively so In the event that he would pass away before she did. He was always concerned about his family. But when it came to anything else, he did not matter if he had said something on Tuesday that didn't work on Wednesday, he would simply lie and say, I never said that. And of course, we didn't have video tape and we didn't have radio and we didn't have podcasts, and we just didn't have any kind of record. That sort of stuff. And he said, Well, that was fake news. Excuse me. Maybe he didn't use that phrase. But he would say the newspaper reporter got that wrong. But he did this over and over and over again, he would testify before congressional committees or before investigators here in California, and in the next time if it didn't work, he would simply change his mind say, I never said that. This was a guy who absolutely had no compunction about lying about taking money. That wasn't his about not paying back loans that he owed. I think those air pretty immoral and even a moral standards. I'll give one example ahh of just sort of this being all over the map kind of thing. He changed his position on immigration from Asia a lot, which was a very important issue in California, and he mean sometimes before it's sometimes used against and really depended. It seems like on what benefited him personally at That very moment. Absolutely. That's a perfect example of it. It's very current. Today. Of course, immigration has always been an issue or long been an issue here for us in America. We're a nation of immigrants, but he was vehemently anti Chinese. Just an out and out racist. He called them the dregs of society and much worse. But when he had a really shortage of workers for Israel road, he suddenly decided well, The Chinese are great. We have all these Chinese people here and he employed again. Some 12,000. Chinese immigrants who came to California but when he was done with them, then he immediately pivoted when he became a United States senator and began denigrating the Chinese again even again. One of his brothers just CYA spoke about this in his memoirs in a dictated memoirs. But he said, You know, it's really odd. I used to argue with Leland about this, that the Chinese were actually a great benefit to this country. But when he turned out that he could use them, he then suddenly agreed with me. Okay, We're going to pause here for just a minute. We're gonna be back with more about the life of Leland Stanford, including his run for governor, his theft of taxpayer dollars and then the creation of Stanford University and Silicon Valley. I'm talking to Roland Walk. He's the author of the book, American Disruptor. The scandalous Life of Leland Stanford. From WGBH.

"Welcome back to innovation Hub and Sarah Miller. This is a story about a family. It's also a story of outrageous fortune, political self dealing and great tragedy. And I'm going to start with the tragedy because that's how the family is largely remembered. Today It happened in Italy, where a California couple was on vacation with their son. They had been trying to have a child for 18 years, and then finally they have Leland and he was, by all accounts, not only a really nice kid, but he was rather precocious in many different ways. A highly intelligent, remarkable child. Anybody would have loved him. Roland Walk is a historian who teaches at San Francisco State University. But while they were on a grand tour of Europe, he succumbed to typhoid at age 15. This was an enormous heartbreak is anybody whose experience or been around anybody who's experienced the death of a child? Can begin to understand is it's It was horrific for them. Jenny and her husband, who like his son was named Leland had everything money could buy. But the death of their 15 year old was devastating. The writer Mark Twain said that Leland Sr at once lost all interest in life. So the couple made a decision that reverberates to this day a decision to memorialize Leland by creating a school named after him, and they had this huge ranch 8000 acres in Palo Alto, California, and that's where they began the university. It is legally. Leland Stanford junior. University, Leland Stanford Jr had been slated to attend Harvard, but instead, his death began a Siri's of events that created a new powerhouse university. And an area around it. Silicon Valley that would change the modern world. Ironically walk, says Leland, Stanford senior who had actually made the piles of money that it would take to start this new university. Was, if anything, an anti intellectual, He was either expelled or he dropped out of three successive Secondary schools, so he didn't have what we would have today's the equivalency of a high school diploma. He was an absolute failure. There's no way that he was gonna even be able to be allowed to take a tour of the Stanford University campus today, but just because the elder Stanford seemed ill suited to start a university That didn't stop him. Being Underqualified had never stopped him. It hadn't stopped him from embarking on a scandalous political career or an exploitive business career. It hadn't stopped him from becoming a technological pioneer so powerful, he fundamentally change this country. This was the absolute not only high tech of the time, but the massively so you could think about is Google Apple Facebook all rolled into one. What Leland Stanford did through a bunch of shifty means, which we will get Teo. Is Nick the country together with railroads. At the time, it seemed impossible laying tracks through mountain ranges all the way out to the West that would have created a network country. But the technology seemed about his remote is the Internet. Stanford, though, got it done. The federal government was completely well, certainly the northern forces of the federal government completely behind financing a transcontinental railroad. Not only because the civil war was taking place, and they were afraid of losing the West to become a slave state that also they were concerned about their was a Mormon insurrection, and they worried about another separatist movement there. The story of Leland Stanford is not well known, but it says a lot about how much and in some ways how little America has changed. Roland Walk, is the author of the book American Disruptor, The scandalous Life of Leland Stanford, and he says Stanford would come to be worth more than the state he was helping to mold California. And he would do it in part by truly being a self made man and in part by stealing from Californians and from federal taxpayers. Stanford was from New York he'd lived in Wisconsin, but his life got really colorful when he arrived in San Francisco during the gold rush. Where things were a little different from how they are now think of a dystopian back in all, if you will. We're talking about a place. Where was 95% men who are here to make a quick buck and we're making quick bucks. The fortunes that were rolling into San Francisco from the Goldfields were enormous, so the spending of money on particularly gambling And some of the gambling was really horrific. For example, the original mission mission Dolores, here in San Francisco, was the site of where they would bring in grizzly bears and bulls and put him in a marina and let them fight to death. And they would all be cheering and throwing bets down. The streets were just completely filthy, that rats everywhere. Fires were taking place engulfing the entire little Pueblo, which became a huge boom town on a very regular basis. There were prison ships off the coast, where they use the abandoned ships of people coming around the horn and across the Pacific from China, for example. It wasn't the kind of place that you would want to bring your mother in law into this world steps. Stanford, A man who by this time had failed at a lot. His brothers were already out in California, and they decided Stanford should open a store catering to gold miners. Which is when things started to get sketchy and very, very lucrative. So he goes up there, and he opens up a little Stanford brother store where he starts selling cigars and liquor and and mining equipment and stuff like that. But Stanford had managed to become a lawyer when he was Wisconsin. So he went to the county supervisors. They're in that county, which would been plaster county at the time, and he said to them, You know what you need a justice of the peace. Why don't you appoint me justice of the peace? And they said, Okay, sure, You could be justice of the peace, So they're showing his first rials. Signs of being able to be not only an entrepreneur but conflating. Public office with his ability to make money ran his courtroom in Hiss Saloon, He opened up a saloon. Where better, Where better to run a courtroom really than in a saloon. You would have looked forward to that is a former reporter. I think that would have been a great story, but perhaps by today's standards, even by The standards of those days. That was a pretty remarkable and brazen thing to dio. But obviously he made a lot of money, and it taught him an important lesson. You know, putting these two things together. Having political power using that leveraging a little bit for my own private fortune seems to work pretty well. And that was a profound lesson for him. That lesson would become most helpful when a young engineer named Theodore Judah came a lot. Duda had pitched the venture capitalists of San Francisco, though they probably didn't call themselves that then on a great discovery he had made he had found a pass through the Sierra Nevada Mountains. A past that could complete the network of railroads linking the U. S. But for a while, no one seemed to care. So then he goes up to Sacramento, and he goes to a small group of businessman and he says, Hey, you know, here's this great plan, and they all say thanks, but no thanks. But in the back of the room There's this guy named Collis Huntington and call us Huntington to say, very wily trader who also came out right after the beginning of the gold rush and call us Huntington had a store right next to Stanford store. And he saw Stanford is a guy who made a really great front man. If they were going to get some government money, maybe Stanford could be going to some political office. So they said, Hey, you want to be my partner, Leland Stanford and a couple of the guys. Hopkins and Crocker. And come up to the office like tomorrow night and tell us about your plan. This way. Leland Stanford was introduced to the possibility of cashing in on this marvelous big high tech. Entrepreneurial enterprise of the Early part of 18 late 18 fifties. So you know, I've heard all my life as I think Many people have about robber barons like Vanderbilt and Carnegie. You say, Though Stanford might have been more successful than many of the people that we've heard of as having sort of built America, Um, you know, in the sort of second half of the 18 hundreds Why was he more successful? And and then? You know, why isn't he in that pantheon? Well, of course, we have to define success. And everybody has a completely different idea of success, right? But if we're going to measure business success, I sort of an Ah Normative, you know, standard way He had many more employees than any Carnegie's or any Rockefeller, said 12 15. Some estimate the 20,000 employees working under him..

"So if you stay for the Chicago Bulls yesterday my friend mark Sandusky from NBC sports Chicago he and I would sit at our desks which are right next to each other in the newsroom there and starting in November we would talk about change that could be coming change has arrived in probably bigger than most people thought was going to happen massive change sweeping through the Chicago Bulls basketball operations department and that leads us to my friend mark should now ski who covers the bulls for NBC sports Chicago ski first of all how are you and how is your family cap we're all doing great thanks for asking and then I got to tell you that no way back in November early December don't tell me explicit that those that's the changes coming and not let the cold because the right principles so while the active guard I the making that kind of a big focal point they really have anything around without it costing you with Arcturus connected with in terms of building the roster out so as you look at what yesterday was our terrorists was very direct about gar Forman we have different philosophies and I was surprised he was as blunt and direct as he was on that question he's going to build out its own front office John Paxson went as far as telling Michael and Jerry Reinsdorf Hey man to get the right guy if I have to leave the organization I'll do it he's going to be there consultant and their guy what do you think about this hiring specifically well I do a lot of credit to Michael Reinsdorf five minutes we've heard over the years that the polls at one of the smallest product hi Rick gates so you're not having an assistant general manager without having a salary cap specialist it makes a difference in terms of the analytics department but that could be expanded as well and they needed to add more scouts that there's that roll out Michael hello what was going on with other teams the NBA draft the outlook for the organization find out how they're doing things and realize that they got to get up with the times they have to expand the front office expanded scouting analyst Arbin and makes her that not all of the iconic records indicated they'd be that way around the world and I think that what happened during all star weekend will allow that after looking at the clock but I don't think the Bonaparte cargo I think that's the on the right family if I click go bold action it is one of the best executives that's available and how what they can do in terms of a coaching hire and think I had multiple people in the league tell me a joke Kali tweeted this yesterday that moving car out of the organization immediately has a huge effect on players around the league agents coaches executives that are looking at the polls now in a different light do you think it was that clear no I kind of disagree with that point I mean god forbid wasn't dramatic but it it's a twenty seventeen John Paxson agrees that we should stop with the fake that front office I don't Kerr does some work with agents in terms of negotiating contracts but I think when it's time to close the deal that's going to be packed that's going to be the right stuff that was going to try to get the room with these free agents and and maybe some of your top players as well I think guard's role has been reduced over the last couple of years and if you could write some agents the wrong way you know that's something that maybe they have a lot the class which was great but I don't think that that in itself with her free agents away from the polls I think that the situation more was the fact that this was a rebuilding situation that that guys were reluctant to jump on it you know they came close with Carmelo Carmelo said openly that it was too cold for the next and the next offered more body with the cast it back in twenty ten we all know what happened with the weight class inside the play together in Miami so I would really in the front office of course some of those free agent failing because guys that if we go somewhere else and you know they rebounded pretty well they got pockets all of it a couple of all star teams related get bellow and they came pretty close to advancing to the Eastern Conference finals that year so you know they've they've got a lot of good things along the way but it was clearly time for change and I think with our tourists coming in and with the staff is going to assemble hopefully they're able to bring in a top level coach that there's also going to feel some free agents and maybe didn't get the role with the honestly with our you know Soledad about the throat of the walk we have a strong great community here in Chicago area baby you would consider supporters to the polls to stay in the subdivision collectibles as you look at what this team needs I have been consistent I kept telling you this was my opinion that they have got to get a point guard a lead guard he's got to be able to break people down off the dribble it's got to be able to make jump shots but he has to be able to pass all four spots not just the easy pass Coby white is more of a scorer for me at this point he's not a pure point guard do you think that's the number one thing they have to get I think what they need to look more shooting and I think that they're still really lagging behind the rest of the three according to the when you look at the rankings they record the plot of gluten one three point shooting percentage and they're just not a team that is the only threat you distance Jack Levine made some improvements to that area code what is been very streaky when he's hot he's great but other games you know we didn't really see a little active or fish in a score I thought that your soul for Colby's a point guard though cap you know you just turned twenty last month and and he's a guy that that as you mentioned can't break the guys off the dribble because he's fast he's quick he's quick he can change directions I think it's just a question of getting you know better coaching better understanding with the NBA game is all about I think there's still some potential there for him to develop those that lead guards to talk about that I think maybe we're going back to the way the NBA used to be when we were kids and teenagers Kaplan you know you had Jerry west and Gail Goodrich and LA you had urban Roland walk in New York it was just you have to guard you were looking for cards that will give players thank you every aspect of the game well and maybe not have those groups it'll five rolls of point guard shooting guard small forward power forward center I think that's kind of going out the window as opposed to making that yesterday and it is we need also to the case suggested that you're looking for guys who can play multiple positions guys who are versatile investors back to the NBA because kind of a position in this league he once got the can can do a lot of things right at the base start looking for those traditional roles I would be surprised if the next coaching staff baby takes a long look at the playing our market and its center board and maybe it will be quite L. Carter junior to trade because you said openly feels he's out of position playing call of playing center at six nine years ago and I think if you look at any of the core pieces of the guy who maybe doesn't fit the vision that I take a bite out of the blue I found it I did Jim Boylen issued a statement yesterday I I do if he told me it was Gregg Popovich or Steve Kerr I get it they're legendary I found it odd that he did did you absolutely Catholic you know we've all been in situations that are professional careers ridicule a little bit uneasy about your future and you try to do whatever you can to ingratiate yourself with your bosses and I think that was his way of saying that listen I'm I'm I'm you know what your thoughts are got pulled across the chest that I want to be a part of this organization and you know you can be reached out to try to welcome in the fight because I was also going to be in charge of the state yeah it was it was a little bit odd but you know if you know Jim Jim is is very passionate any stock in our if you have an opportunity to do anything to help the situation he's going to do that well it's going to be interesting to see where this goes but I think you would agree with me as an NBA guy as a bulls fan it is probably the biggest day other than Theo Epstein coming to Chicago this might be the biggest move we've seen in thirty forty years yeah obviously yell at the the pedigree of winning titles with the Boston Red Sox in with sales is probably the top executives in the major leagues so I you know I would go to that level but you know Arcturus is been the hiring is the reversal appointed around the NBA people just talk about the fact he has a a worldwide web of international context he's he's got a wonderful job in terms of his background as a player working at the league office experience with jira Maureen Houston about helping the Denver Nuggets filled with the top teams in the west you really checks all the boxes for what you want is a rising executive but I think the fact that people like him around the league is going to help him when he when he wants to call agents of players about possibly coming to Chicago as a free agent and I think it's a day that both fans to be excited about because when you look at the history the fault of the rice or family all the top front office people have always been a promotions with that now they've looked outside the organization recognizing that you know we we have some areas that we need to strengthen let's look outside look at the best guy available in our churches also said in in terms of making the hires because front office he's going to be very slow in making sure he gets the best people and then it's on to deciding what to do with the coaching staff and then try to improve the roster so as you mentioned it is a really good day for Chicago basketball fans because one of the things that we've noticed over the last couple of years it wasn't just that the fans were happy were angry they were totally apathetic I mean they were saying about watching the game that's a good thing after the change yeah yeah that when you if your wife doesn't care what you're doing that's where that are being angry at you yeah that's the question okay thank you know long after dark rose was traded to the next we decided to record it Minnesota but then well the last couple of years is the rebuild has stalled people just said you know what I don't care and I can't tell you how many times do you have on my Twitter timeline or people reaching out you stand I don't watch the games anymore because there's no hope I don't see any direction I don't see any way that we can improve well now with the front office boss brought in from the outside with an expanded structure we need them with expanded scouting staff will most likely a new coach well you know there's hope that this can really turn around and hopefully if not next year in two years they're back in the playoffs Hey man miss seeing you I hope you stay healthy and safe in your family invest your kids and your wife yeah.

"To read by radio and he is Carlene I'm Gerry McNamara eight six six nine the red eyes so when you talk about the you know the the revelations that have come out over the last you know three or four days you know everything's been a bomb shell and everything is sort of disappeared in the you know in the end you know the latest Bolton bomb shell you know about what he said about you know Bolton's claiming what he said to Attorney General Barr about his concerns about trump and bar said his office said I conversation didn't happen that way right so will there be another bomb show all the way up to Friday of this week a new one every day in bed that really doesn't stick if I'm a senator I'm saying look there may be questions here that's up to the house to do right maybe questions about the intent of trump with nothing impeachable right with any evidence that we have now there is or any books that are out there or any media reports nothing impeachable here right this hour brought you by Freightliner run smart helping you run more efficiently as Freightliner number one goal I'm and it says you know it gets it because it it really this this clearly is a push by whoever's leaking the the the parts of the unpublished manuscript I'm it's a push to get and and which is by the way weather without this happening Mitt Romney would be I'm sure in favor of voting for witnesses that's just the way Mitt Romney was geico but the fact the fact of the matter is it is still not gonna get you anywhere close you know the political damage really do you think about it that I don't think Mitt Romney is I've I believe he's not worried at all about political damage if he was to put a stop doing this stuff a long time ago I'm but the political damage is real when you start siding with say good you're basically retching out the Adam Schiff show when it doesn't deserve that kind of the time well the argument should be made and made publicly to mit Romney by other Republicans that there's nothing impeachable right it doesn't get you there even if it's true it doesn't get you anywhere right and so the answer from any Republican who may be on the ledge which you shouldn't be on the legs is our there's nothing to stop the house from filing articles of impeachment if there's something there right but even if what is in the book is stated there it's not impeachable right and therefore if you've got something go back to the house you subpoena him were not doing your work it's as simple as that Mitt Romney doesn't stand in any type of high ground except the fact I hate trump I what I had to get his support in order to win I got his support in order to win and now I make it clear to everybody that I hate him and because you don't hear met remark Mitt Romney saying well if this is true from Bolton this is impeachable right right in say that somebody needs to ask him the question well if it's true because that's what we said two months ago okay what would be the half and we went to this point and said it both mad that wouldn't change anything well no then why are you waiting for his testimony all right let's have your calls and comments otherwise you and I will talk all night yeah right let's go to Roland in Chicago Roland walking you're on right I ready you're welcome to the show hi hi guys thanks okay first of all how do we know that those passages in the end with the way he means well the only way that we would know was in fact the Bolton would say I didn't with the with the New York times story is is not accurate by the way that's how we could say it is and say what I said sure the New York times story is not accurate he has not said that so he may also whether it's true or not she doesn't matter whether it's true or not it's whether he believes it's true or not would be the question right right I mean if you're calling a witness that's what the witness says you're not you're not asking the witness can actually prove anything well unless the witness brought a recording of the president's saying it but that's not gonna happen that didn't happen we there's nobody even getting close that claims the notes from or recollection of John Bolton go to sell in Denver sal welcome you're not already welcome to the show hi hi guys I think that Bolton is characteristic publicist I mean you know he was gonna sell five books anyway but but you're absolutely right if if he goes on the stand you're not gonna sell anybody what do you sell five books yeah it's it did work you're not gonna have conservatives wish to buy the book I now I mean mate well hold it I'm sorry they will buy your review my mind already well but you see will the other day is our response will impeachments are good because they put presidents they they they they let presidents know that there's a limit to where they could all my god it was horrible I mean it was what happened I have no idea I mean it was horrible and how they just legalized it everywhere the trump range in central or that that I mean I mean it was just it's it was it was amazing the impeachment good because yeah you know even if your baking making the point even if it doesn't remove from office it lets the president know that he can only go so far we're his point should be as a conservative constitutionalist Congress's overstepping their by exactly and there's a reason that impeachment is extremely rare it is really it is amazing because you when I always had this conversation how did they change to the point of not being critical thank god I do more yeah I don't get it and and you and I have said through all of this and and I think that that our audience would agree with us all of our listeners would agree with us we haven't changed at all no no there is no I yet wait what look when when you know we talk about Nadler calling the trump a dictator when you had people calling and forgot who was somebody well but even a few listeners upon say well Obama's a dictator we said now is now and stop there you're arguing like they are he may want to be a dictator every president and want to be a dictator that's not what they want to be it is our holiday are there and they're not they're not dictators and jet ways as we found out you know when remember the world was going to end when Obama was elected president you and I were both here together yeah in one thousand eight when that happened we said no the world's not going to end what about the influence of a bomb when you look at it now that he's been out of office for three years from any type of huge impact that he's having in any any any Reagan type of adoration that is still around three years after Obama's out no no not admin and so we've remain consistent in our opinion all the time which is looking for the truth we don't have fake anger no we don't have fake outrage we can talk about the world been doing up but that's okay because we're doomed that's factually based only on Wednesday we all are ahead that's true we are doomed and and it's like trump when we just agree that we disagree with them yeah I don't have any feelings of of extreme happiness or extreme anger in some I like what he did yeah okay that's pretty good no yeah that's good there now that's not good over there but we back it up with this is why and based on this FAQ this FAQ this FAQ this FAQ this FAQ and people can agree with those who disagree with us we're not even mad at people when they call up and disagree with us right where it really doesn't matter just a matter of conversation people having different opinions and you know hi you back it up with the facts that you either know or facts are ever think exactly are are are the facts or you just eliminate facts completely and it's just pure anger and rhetoric and that's were trump derangement syndrome comes in but that's one of things you when I wonder about some of the never trappers and it's just like what happened why was it with how weak are you if one person's personality drives you to the point of not being a critical thinker anymore how hard is it for well how Dershowitz he didn't vote for the guy probably won't vote for him in November but is actually on his defense team it I mean went to the point joining his defense team that that's because he's an old school liberal well he is but he's also is a critical thinker in you can be a conservative and say look I don't support the guy on a number of things but in terms of impeachment is good because it reminds presidents what their limitations are it was that he said on MSNBC the other day George well service certain kool-aid at that these news rock right as I don't know I mean it was just it was mind boggling when I heard it I just above and I'm guessing it must be or maybe it's that crack in the candy bowl I should when the what you said they're just all smoking no they know they need crack well they they need they they doing many crack to sober up that so this is how all that and it is you would have to smoke crack to get more sober than they are they need crack to sober up snap out of it if you don't like the guy okay fine I get it I can't change that find that's that's you you don't want to vote for the guy all right that your vote you start saying stupid things like impeachment is good because it reminds presidents what their limitations are when it's an absolute abuse of Congress it's just you need to just hit the pipe I know so what we're up well it's interesting because that's you know but you you talk about what you like and I'll get that you like trump doesn't matter irrelevant my role not not at all I don't think that way I'm not going over this place for a cookout on Saturday right if I'm sure he wouldn't be in gifts and the first if he if he invites Eric and I to the White House in and says Hey let's have a barbecue in and we get talking about stuff and have a couple of beers and then he says Eric you stay here yeah you you stay here with the wife and kids I'm gonna I'm gonna play eighteen with Gerry I may come back and say I like him he's a nice guy right by the way hanging out with their would be cool to sail tall the got what is the deal I think he's taller than his dad now saw them getting armory one together a just a clip so I can be a forward what happens is your real yeah I didn't see that because like a growth spurt it was a it was a video is a short video of like that's not like the Baron from that is that a different bank earned its somebody else you know on like the TV shows back in the seventies

"View mirror. We have this kind of the really interesting thing about this. Everything is in the review, right everything. Completely everything stuff has happened. The murders have been committed and have nothing to do. It turns out with the original case Harris James again. Murdered in the course of trying to figure out what happened to the kids, which is a thing that. Was in no way related to what people thought it was. It's just. It's incredibly interesting. There are a lot of like really fascinating shots of especially good one is when they're going through Hoyts mansion and like there's mirror and they're seeing them. See Wayne is seeing himself as a young, man. And a lot of these ideas of like. Who is the memory who's having the memory, which is thinking about others me so much about the two thousand fifteen stuff is that everything that they come across all the brakes and the case wind up being like these almost like like serendipitous like, and then I knew a woman in the DMV, and she told me where this person live or we met Harris James's wife who seemed completely undisturbed by the fact that two senior citizens with badges, right? We're interrogating her about her dead husband and also deputy exam whether or not like does she know that her husband was murdered or she. I think he's he's just gone. He just split town as far as she knows. Okay. That's like that whole two thousand fifteen time. I'm I think you could make an argument that like not it didn't happen. I I don't. This is this goes back to like is rolling real. Yeah. Like doesn't that feel like almost like it's happening? If you were telling that story, and then this happened. There are a lot of these very dream like shots of Wayne and Roland walking or driving where the camera would just kind of linger on them. And there was this almost kind of like ethereal quality to what was happening as they transitioned from place to place and seeing Junius go to the convent even the way the the scene of them going to the convent to check the grave is cut into. Another story that's happening younger Amelia is telling him inside of loosened. Basically, what happened a lot of so much of it is just like where are we who is who is having this? The entire case could have just been solved. If we read Amelia's. About a two seasons. Like, oh, actually, go res- this guy. I just love. Mealy also giving them the cliff notes version. That's the other thing is two things. First of all an extremely petty relationship. Unbelievable. You can't read your wife's book. And then Amelia, you're not going to be like, here's what I found. Here's as recompense for me, basically, taking all the stuff you told me and turning it into an Ed ruining your career. Let me just give you the quick download on my book. What do you say, it seems like husband and wife style? No, Jordan got anymore burners worse. Speaking of Amelia, how did merely die missing something here. I don't think it's ever. It's never just an illness. I think we're at least. I guess we're supposed to take it based on their relationship in two thousand and five and how affectionately he watches her repo tree that was to be like they're good police, which is both working at the same university. That's fun. Yeah. That's true. Yeah. Get summers off. Yeah. Wes last question says how much of this conspiracy stuff was created by fans verse how much was actually on the page guilty. I don't know like clearly hinted at this. It's. The show runners want us to go in the street. He's pushing I mean like, I look I remember an interview that happened right after the season started. We got a chance to see the first episode or two we were really focused on the west Memphis three elements, the satanic ritual abuse, the idea that there would be this moral panic and evil going on and puts a lot of quickly shot that down in Entertainment Weekly rise like we've moved past that fast. Like, you get to have a both ways. Right. You get to be like, I moved past it. But that creates a world in which this kind of stuff happens. And no they have not. I definitely think that fans are imbuing the show with certain things that they agree are, they're agreed. But I also feel like this show is taking place in this sort of underground this fictional underground. Where on this kind of stuff was happening elisas specific role within the story is to engender, this kind of theorems almost more rust yet. Aim was that's literally. Why she exists in this story is to is to like gin up this feeling of, you know, the the crooked spirals, and it's connected to the Louisiana ks, and then you never thought there was a wider conspiracy asks that question. Yeah. So yes, of course, like fans will be fans and fans will one with the clues that they have. But those clues were there. There are clues. Yeah. She says Nebraska. Yes. She says it absolutely Jordan any other questions. That's all. I got. Okay. Great. I'm sure we're going to be impacting this episode to watch it again. Yeah. For a long time.
