"In your mid week addition of CNN. Ten Bindings Carl Zeus. It's great to see you. We've done some reporting lately on the destructive wildfires wildfires in California the state still in the midst of its fire season when blazes are more likely to flare up but the major wildfires. We told you about have been contained for for the most part now though some people in southern California are in danger of another potential disaster flooding the US Army Corps of Engineers which operates and maintains means about seven hundred dams in America recently issued a new warning about the Mojave River Dam. It's located at the northern side of the San Bernardino Mountains and last year. The core ran a risk assessment of it and concluded that if water flows over the top of the dam during an extreme flood event. The dam could fail to be clear. The core says the kind of flooding that could cause that is unlikely. And it's never happened before but it's drawing attention to the issue because the area expects more rain this winter her and if the dam were to fail flooding could affect more than three hundred fifteen thousand people who live in nearby communities about seventy miles north east of Los Angeles the Mojave River Dam was built in nineteen seventy one that makes it younger than most of the dams across the US. There are more than ninety thousand of them and most are more within fifty years old. They help provide irrigation and hydropower and protect communities from flooding but many across the country are under review and the importance of assessing assessing. Them became clear in two thousand seventeen. When the Oroville Dam in northern California was damaged after heavy rainfall that led to the evacuation of one hundred eighty thousand awesome people before water levels at the dam dropped four years ago. The Army Corps of Engineers estimated it with me twenty four billion dollars to fix all the dams that needed repairs. There's trivia which of these animals hibernates in winter tree squirrelled the Studio Monarch Butterfly for silver event. Mosquitoes are the only animals on this list and entered Dia Pause Hibernation like period of shutting down for the cold winter months. So that explains why the Pesky pests always come back in the summer and when they do why why do they always seem to bite some people more often than others scientist say. There are a number of things. Mosquitoes are attracted to strongly. scented soaps are believed to get their attention along along with certainty odorants and perfumed the increased carbon dioxide. We give off when we're exercising can create a buzz among the insects as well as our sweat as far forest clothing goes researchers are divided over. Whether it's bright or dark clothes that make us easier for mosquitoes to spot. But a recent study has found that different types of the body odour could make some people more prone to mosquito bites than others. Is there anything that can be done about that. Maybe one day if a drug is designed that can change. Those odors could that have side effects of its own. Yes but because of the diseases they carry. Mosquitos are responsible for more human deaths than any other animal. There's a lot of international national interest in keeping them away. It's not all in your head. Some people really are more attractive to mosquitos than others. Research has determined that it has to do with how each of us smells which is individual to everyone and partly determined by our DNA fraternal. Twins are much less similar to each other than identical twins are in terms of DNA and odor so experts in London conducted a study between fraternal twins identical twins to see if there was the difference between between the two when they expose the twins mosquitoes. They found that identical twins were bidding in similar amounts but fraternal twins were bitten in differing amounts meaning meaning that mosquitoes really do bite. Some individuals more than others and that's at least partially because of body odor. Scientists already have a sense of which compounds and human odors attract mosquitoes. They're hoping to develop a drug that changes human body odors to make them less attractive to mosquitos that could have major public health benefits offense especially in areas where mosquitoes transmit diseases like malaria dengue fever and West Nile virus.

Podcast #929: Happy New Year!
"Welcome to the. HDTV podcast featuring our dairy in afraid Russell and Komo TV podcast I welcome to the HDTV and home theater podcast. This episode nine twenty nine four January anywhere third of the year twenty twenty. WHO feels like we're living in the future are you doing? How's life in the future for you? Our life in the future is fantastic. tastic now Did you do the episode number. We got a lot of catching up to do. Oh you said that right podcast nine. Yeah there we go. And if you WANNA get get a hold of us Hd guys at hd guys calm and our website is hd guys outcome so okay. You tweeted Yesterday or the day before about getting snowed in Europe and big bear For doing some skiing and stuff right. Yeah so we took off. And that's why there's a I don't know if you can hear it in the show uh-huh or if it's going to be picked up. I'm in a weird room in this cabin that we rented. There's a little bit of an echo in here kind of a hollow room so I apologize out there. Everyone listening if it sounds like him in a cave. Kind of 'EM Yeah we came up to big bear to get up on the slopes in the boys are going to do some snow boarding and we'll do a little skiing and I got up here Monday night. We got a good Drops snow on us that we weren't expecting and got snowed in which was pretty Raza. First Time it's ever happened to me And we came up we were able to get all the way up the mountain without chains which was great and both of the cars we have are all wheel drive so I was kinda comfortable with it but then as soon as that snow hit they went over to the chain required. Ah For all cars even all wheel drive it unless you have snow tires which obviously Orange County cars don't have snow tires so we got into chain weather. But that's not the worst part. We were ready to go and tried to start the car and it was so cold it wouldn't start so I'm on the online on the Internet. Trying to figure out. Do you get a car. That's too cold to start to start and there were recommendations like you know. Put a blanket over it which I thought was the weird thing. I thought people were just goofing with you like like you're going to warm warm up your car by putting a blanket over it but we popped open. The hood got the like four inches of snow off the top of it and kind of tried to heat it up by breathing on it really hard and eventually we were able to get it to turn over over and start but we thought we were GONNA be stranded for days have staff to get triple eight to come up. And I don't even know if triple eight comes up here to be honest with you and we were. The boys were like. How are we going to get food? You'd like can we Jordache. I don't I don't know door Nash. snowmobile pizza on a snow mobile but it was fun. It's been a lot of fun and it's definitely something. That was a new adventure for us. We had a little bit of snow up in in the Pacific northwest. When we're up by Portland but it was always like a light dusting never really like a heavy snow But this was this has been really of course melodic fun and I know most author who live and experienced the snow though whatever we got three four or five inches of snow is no big deal. It's kind of like child's play but for for us coming from Orange County up it was massive and it's been huge making you know. Snow forts snowmen and snowball fights and stuff. It's been a lot of fun. It's been an actual real winter so people So you can get your bearings Brayden and I live in Southern Orange County were probably Blay as the crow flies. I think you're a little closer to the ocean than I am. I'm about ten miles from the ocean. Brayden you're probably five a tan. Okay and in big bear is due east so actually It's past Palm Springs. Right Far East goes right. And what does the elevation about ten thousand feet. Nine thousand things so yeah. We're in the San Bernardino Mountains Tech and you could see him from From here and you see the snow on him. It looks beautiful now. I had a similar problem but a little bit. Different Snow was my issue. We spent Christmas in Fresno with my in laws and we were coming down on Thursday because Friday my wife and I were going to Rome and you're GonNa Laugh just for the weekend because because I had these vouchers that we're going to expire and I looked and I said okay. Where is the cheapest place I can go? This far away and is hard to believe. Germany was more expensive incisive. I was looking for like a warm weather and of course all the warm weather was expensive. So places so that was out of the question. So what for whatever reason Rome was fit within my vouchers and we had to kick in a little bit extra money but anyway the point was we had to be Down here on Friday so I get up in the morning on Thursday. I see on twitter. That this person. I follow whether Casper says. Oh the great blinds closed and I. It went and looked at the traffic camps. You said inches. There was fetus. No on the grapevine. And that's only at about forty five hundred feet so it's lower than big bear but for whatever reason it got more snow so I said you know what there is a way around the way around scaping. Well there was. Is You gotta go cross The San Joaquin Valley to the coast and we took a one on one and Obviously I wasn't the only one with this idea. We were driving down in bumper to bumper traffic almost from PASA robles Just about to Santa Barbara. We did have a little bit of of Where we were up at full speed and then from Santa Barbara to south of Tora it was just misery but then the funny thing is that did open up but we were looking at the other side coming north and I would say for twenty miles it was just bumper to bumper and the lights look like the ending being seen of Field of dreams. Were all the lights. Were coming into the. It looked just like that. We finally made a four hour drive in ten and a half hours and we got home dead tired. Fortunately our flight wasn't for seeing the morning. Our flight was at noon so we we were at least able to wake up and Kinda you know. Get a get our wits about ourselves than we were on a flight for fourteen hours. It just was not It was was a very My wife and I were in close confinement for almost twenty four hours straight. And when I say close I mean like in a car or right next to each other in airplane and and she didn't get tired of me believe it or not but anyway so that's a good thing. Snow messed up Both of our Did mess up yours and it really all all it did for me was it made it take forever to get home but it was interesting for like you said. Southern California people have zero experience with the snow. Oh and it greatly impacted us yet. I didn't even think about that. You could go all the way out to the coast to get around the grapevine but that's the long way around but yeah. Yeah you're right then everybody's so yeah and going over the long way around. You're stuck with everybody else going the long way around. That's correct we were in line at the You know to get on board the airplane and I checked my twitter and his just finally. The grapevine opened up so I if I was trying to wait it out I would have never made eight it and I said to my wife. We're getting home. It may take us. You know twelve hours on the road but we're going to get home and then we went to Rome. It was Roma such. It's a beautiful city. I I'm going to go back there and spend a lot of time there. We had a great time and it was crazy thing that we did Rather rather than letting the My wife was at at one point. She was like we should've just let these values expire. Who cares sounds like no we had this trip? We're going on it. And so so but in the end she liked it too. Yeah to be honest. That's pretty baller to say. Hey we went to Rome for the weekend. We've got that story to tell right. Yeah that that is is a very Not Normal thing it just I had these voucher so anyways everybody out there happy new year. This is our first show of of the month for show of the year for show of the decade. However you want to count it and I think you already gave our contact info but where h guys dot com and if you'd like like to start supporting the show or if you've been supporting the show there are a couple of ways that you can do that and one of those is by signing up to become a patron of the arts and and a patron of this artistic and phenomenal podcasts?

That's one way you can do it and we thank you for doing that and the other way is through our coffee metaphor bias. A Cup of coffee You get to one time deal.

If you do cafe you get a shout out. We had one it was from damage bride and he says I love listening to you to you. Guys are so humble down to Earth. Yeah the guy who went to Rome for the weekend. Yeah fine for the weekend man. Yeah I'm humble humble guy you'll ever meet. Yeah you are. Actually you are sh- anyway. I picked up on this while listening to you to Youtube for the first time time in so I subscribed on the spot. Thank you for doing that down. Keep up the great work so we listeners may benefit by spending our money wisely and at the same time have fun learning about our new technology. yes again. We try to the the whole purpose of the show. Is We take a common. I'm in man's approach to this stuff. Obviously you could go spend thousands of dollars on a turn turntable but we'll never steer you in that direction. It's just you. You can get a lot of enjoyment without spending thousands of dollars and that's where a lot of recommendations come from that type of thing. Brayden is like the poster boy for TC LTV's and which are good TV's but you know you no one's GonNa say they're an Ol- ed but there is a place for it and apparently only that places in Britain's house places anywhere I can put one in my house absolutely all right so we have some email and the first one. We didn't get the name on this one. It just says hey are check it out. And it's a link to a website called hidden television dot com and it is a Vanity Mirror. TV aligning with the prediction. That there would be. TV's in mirrors for your bathrooms and so that gets full credit. Do we get full credit in hindsight info credit. I'm wondering if I want to do that. The reason his brain. This thing is so expensive a three foot by two foot by right. Three foot mirror was about six thousand dollars. So I don't know. Do I take credit for that. I mean the TV's in the mirror. So I don't think you put a price point on it. None of us are going to go out and buy their. It's it's doable. Retro retroactively. I will take read it all right so the next Email is is from Dale and it is about some home automation. Tips says longtime listener. Thanks for your hard work. Educating US I wanted to expand my home automation starting with the garage. wjr door controller however I have many different brands of home automation devices in. WanNa use one system to bring it all together. I would also like to know if I need a hub who Samsung smart-t hub. Or can I use a particular brand like a echo or something along those lines. If you could point me in the right direction that would be great. I it currently have an An an Alexa Echo. I have These home automation devices devices which I wished to integrate with voice voice control as well as iphone. He's got a ring to and he's got a honeywell total connect comfort thermostat Sonos Integra. DRC Dash are one dot one receiver home theater With the receiver and Future Home Automation of HD Plus Control Music. The Sony Eight F Ola. TV and he says control for not interested in using it as the main component. Because I need to pay extra for programming. So later on he wants to add wireless cameras sensors lighting. So I looked at it and the only thing I can think of that will tie it all together. Now is the the eco- The thermostat the ring the Sonos they all have Echo Echo I guess that calm echo What do they call those Thing Brayden on the echo. When you have a dude yeah I have the? I'm having the the same law of say there's a term for it but there is a way to integrate it with the ECHO. That's what I'm thinking. I don't know that that you could use your iphone voice wise with the Echo. I think if you bring up the APP you may be able to press a button and and speak into it but Hundred percent sure on skills. That's what it is but I'm not a hundred percent. Sure on that. And then there's a lot of wireless cameras that integrate with it and sensors is in lighting and that kind of stuff so in fact hue lights integrate with the echo as well. That's what I would recommend. You don't need a hub in the sense. Hence your echo becomes your hub in that now. If you want to start from scratch you could you could do a google home or You can do do the home kit as you said you have an iphone. You can do something like that. But consid- considering that you're already down this road I'm gonNA sages tight altogether with your with your echo. Thank you everyone out there who knew that we were talking about skills and sent that to me telepathically. Also thank you to Google for me. Find that and all right next to email is from Keith. Andy says hello guys. Hope you had a happy holiday. I've been trying to build my home theater to be four K.. Ready when I decided to purchased four K.. TV So I purchased an encore receiver. which has all the bells and whistles for sound decoding? THX Certified Four K.. Hd are passed through Plus Three D.. Pass passthrough picked up a new sub and speakers at great holiday prices now my quandary is at my current. TV is sixty inch L. G.. Ten Eighty P three D.. Led you still looks great from my distant sitting about ten feet. I want to upgrade to a larger screen. Maybe seventy two seventy five inch and led most likely but there's nothing in the market market I know of this supports three D.. Anno they make three to four K.. Blu Rays and I've got a bunch of three D Blu Rays I've purchased through the years and still enjoy watching them with my four year old son so if they still produce three d blu Ray plus four K.. Three D BLU Ray. How on earth can we watch this content? My cable provider also broadcast three D. movies. It's on HBO on demand. Is there anything in the market that you know of or do I throw away my three D. collection just keep or just keep my old TV and forget about upgrading to four K.. This is very frustrating to consumers especially since almost all movies are still currently released in three D in theaters so the format is it's still not technically dead at all. Any input would be greatly appreciated and that again he says thanks Keith. are to be honest with with you. I have no answer to this e mail because I have not looked for the three D.. Check box on TV. I have purchased at maybe ever. Maybe when it was big for a while it was looking to see this TV three D. because I might want to get into it or looking at the LG's that had the passive glasses but You know since then a few years back. I really haven't even noticed if three D was a feature on TV or not. Have you looked into it at all. Yes so there are not. I couldn't find any televisions that supported it. It just I think it's a technology analogy that just never panned out and there are a lot of people who do like it however for the most part most people just never it never caught on on so a lot of manufacturers. Just quit putting that technology in. It's Kinda like they're asking. Well why do these DISC manufacturer factor supported if There's aren't any. TV's that support it. I think it it doesn't cost them much to put the seat in the three disc in there when when when credit because there are some Some TV's out there that still do support. The only other option is the the projector after that I purchased just recently does support three D if You wanna go to that route instead of going with the actual television by the ultra short throw. Oh the the OPTIMA cinemax P.. One it does support three D you get a smaller screen. I think the smallest one I saw was like eighty inches. So you can get eighty in screen and that will get you what you're looking for. But I think it's just a technology that never really found a viewership of following and and a lot of manufacturers saying we're not gonNA waste our money on it well option three year option for whatever keith. Is You take that sixty inch three D. TV and mount in your four year old son's bedroom make him the luckiest four year old boy in the on the block and anytime you want to Wash Three D. movies. Get a couple of bean bag chairs. Here's throw him in the room and watch three movies in your four year olds room and then you got the bigger four K.. TV Out for the four K.. Movies in your Family Room Home Theater. Whatever you know you call all that and then you still got both best of both worlds? Plus your son's got four Three D. TV in his room. That's Pretty Rad. Well that's exactly what. Uh the Russel's do over there we don't we don't throw out. TV's man we put them somewhere else. Exactly all right and then we got an email from nick. This is more of a heads up. We're not gonNA talk too much about it other than describe what it is. It is a youtube video and what it does. It's a great I wouldn't watch. It's a great description option of what. HDR Is and then tells the difference between HDR ten dolby vision and H L G. We have over the years also described the differences. But this is all in one place for instance like Dolby vision will give you HDR information frame by frame or scene by seeing whereas the original hd are Kinda just averaged it out over the entire movie so some things look great and something's not so much and So so anyway. He goes and describes it the person on this youtube. We have a link at the website. If you're interested in it it I watch it. Even though I kind kind of knew it I still learn some stuff out of it. All right next to email is from Tom. He's having some issues. Netflix atmos- an apple TV and his email says since both you guys are advocates of streaming over physical media and rightly so when it works. I have an apple. TV and several problems occur. Hulu blue only does stereo through the stream device and net flicks at most often. Has the problem that he found a discussion thread at AB forum. And here's what the threat says problem with all dolby ATMA's content when played through NETFLIX APP on Apple. TV Four K.. The center dialogue channel intermittently gently placed through the rear speakers. The sound appears to jump from different speakers should not get narrative through my rear speakers at most Amazon prime apple plus dizzy plus movies. All through. Itunes all play perfectly. The problem with is with Apple. TV for K.. Net flicks APP and I don't use is apple. TV Four K.. and that females from Tallin. Thanks Tom are have. You noticed. Any of this with your apple TV. I have not an I have watched some something's in net flicks Both on the system. That doesn't have at most connected to it an on the system that does have atmos- connected to it. I have not run into these issues so I don't know that it's every device but it is been reported that some people are experiencing this We kinda just offer this as a public service Anna request for Tom requests on his behalf. If somebody does have this issue and they know how to resolve it Let us know and we'll share that information with Tom but yeah even though I use that device I have not experienced those issues. Lucky I guess and then just in sends us an email and said love your podcast. I've got a question regarding wireless speakers with the Dennen What is it S. five forty bt receiver? It does not support heels. However and? I'm not sure I wireless. He'll speakers anyhow. But I do want to be able to have other wireless speakers in the front living room with the main receiver in the back. Dan About seventy five feet away. Can I make any Speaker Bluetooth or hook up hook up to this receiver using its Bluetooth capabilities. Or what about why five. I already have speakers and to use in saw products. Like the outlaw alway. W4 and other Bluetooth transmit transmitters. Many the receivers advertise wireless speaker capabilities but seem to force you. To buy their specific speakers. Even if I upgraded the den and that supports heels upgraded to then in the supports heels. Then I would have to buy speakers and that's not really what I want. Maybe the off easiest option any input you have would be greatly appreciated so got a couple of approaches to this one. I'm assuming by your email that you want to use the Dennen as your receiver as opposed Jose just putting wireless speakers back there and you can use a chrome cast or Some other apple to type airplay to type of device device to turn those into wireless speaker. So let's if that's the easiest thing to do a chrome cast hooked up to it would powered speakers. You've got a second zone would. Would you agree with that Brayden. Yes that makes it super simple. Yes yeah so the other one is an you want to use wireless but you WANNA use your receiver. I have done this use these for my surround speakers. But there's no reason why you couldn't use us for another zone on your receiver. I went to audio engine. I and I got there. W Three wireless audio adapter. It's about one hundred and fifty dollars and one of those plugs into the receiver and you'll connect up the left ed right channel from what wherever. You're getting your audio on your receiver. The other one connects to an amplifier on the receiving end. So you will need if For instance the speakers you have. I don't believe are powered so you're going to need. Some sort of amplifier audio engine sells them. SVS audio sells them. You can go get him at Parts expressed really cheap ones on Amazon. So you can get a receiver. Sorry an amplifier for from anywhere from twenty five to two hundred fifty dollars. There's you can decide the quality that you want you plug the wireless audio adapter receiver into that. And now you've bridge the gap without wires. It's going to end up costing can you anywhere from say one hundred and seventy five dollars to as much as four hundred dollars. Depending on the speaker's you have you may want to go the higher end. Because of the quality I have used these adapters for continuously in my master bedroom for the surround speakers. I have not heard a pop or a click. I think in about five years and they've just been on consistently for five years so they work very reliably. It is inexpensive solution. But it is the best wireless solution I've I've ever dealt with when dealing with trying to get audio from from a receiver to pair of speakers so you got two options there I I think because you wanNA use receiver This might be the way to go. Oh in Sonos is another option. If you want to get into Sonos. They used to sell a product called the bridge. I think it's called the port now but you might still to the bridge on Ebay and you can plug again an audio source to it. And then it'll put that audio source into your Sonos system and then you could add another amp or bridge or whatever they're called at your speakers occurs and make those another zone in your system so you can broadcast the music and then you could add Sonos speakers wherever you want great as many zones as you want so sonos would be another option but again Sonos to get those devices like each of the bridge is probably going to be three or four hundred bucks so it's not a cheap route to go but so would allow you to do something similar as well. Yeah and to be honest with you. If it were me I would go the Sonos route because then you could add more zones anywhere you want. So let's say you you get the this one's own that you're trying to get here and then you decide you know what I WANNA put one in my dining room. I WANNA put one in my master bedroom. It actually is a a very very good system and in the time that I've been using Sonos. I don't think I've ever had a sink. Issue was is rock solid all the stones all zones loans are in sync right and our next email is from van and he says. Here's an idea. I've got a motion sensor on the ceiling of our walk in closet laws it and added a connected bulb it stays on for one minute with no motion definitely overkill but I had to reduce redundancy and needed it to move the sensor but this is a solution to. I've thought about putting timer switches like in closets bathrooms because my kids have some sort of mental illness that they can't turn off the light in a closet or a bathroom after they go in the light turns on and it just never turns off so I'm constantly going around the house. Turn lights off but if if you had a motion sensor and it was connected to the switch or the bulb in the closet you wouldn't have to worry about it as soon as they're gone after a minute the light turns off And it's not as frustrating improbably as those timers switches. Where after the five minutes after five minutes it turns off? Even if you're still in there and you've got to turn it back on and you get another five minutes alight. So that's a cool idea. And then he says. I love the water valve thing doing research as probably a lot of people because that water valve solution sounds really really bad so the next email is from Robert and he says hey guys being a fellow home water leak victim. It's interesting that line in the AD for the for the Mon flow is that you are more likely to have issues based on this and you will fire or theft so it it. There's a lot of people who got water leak issues anyway. I installed a water water cop. We leak detector water leak detection system in my home over a decade ago and it has saved me many times it works. Best when the water wireless airless. Water sensors are placed in every location in the home where water is used the water cop water COP dot com. It's very effective with the leak in those is locations. But we had three other leaks in the copper pipes in our walls and attic. They were very small. Pinhole leaks where it took a while for the water to to accumulate in the ceiling and eventually be seen. The water cop is not effective for this type of leak because I. I was intrigued by the MON flow system that you described bribed on a discuss on a recent podcast but I'm concerned about false alarms for a few reasons. Our toilets how small leaks which I think is very common. Because because they're not detected very easily by sight or sound and I think what he means by leaks is not necessarily a leak where it's dripping on the sink but you you know the how it got that Little Stop Valve and sometimes it doesn't turn off all the way and just have the small imperceptible amount of water. That's still trying to fill it. I think that's what he's talking about right. So you will have no water on the floor to to let you know about this anyway. He says we also have of a reverse osmosis system in our house. That slowly draws water to make purified water storage tank. Also the ice maker in our freezer draws water periodic periodically to make ice. How will the Mohan system handle these Intended water usages in and we'll be able to discern them from a real water leak. How does it determine the differences ince's between a pinhole water leak in copper pipe and a small leak in the toilet are? I'm hoping you will let us know after you get the system salt in salt in your home. And that's from Robert Robert in San Diego so also I didn't flag His email but chuck sent an email and he said in his case Let's say he said You leave the laundry on and you leave. The House is so your your laundry is on. or The dishwashers on. You'RE GONNA get a notification that something's the things going on and if you said it into away mode it's going to say oh there's water going I need to shut things off. I believe Moen Has dealt with that. I don't know exactly how so I I am going to get this thing set up in the house a second. Let you know but Chuck said. He prefers having living the censors at each point and I believe he can turn them off automatically by. He's install some sort of valve at that point where he can turn them off. What I'm thinking is a hybrid? I kinda like what chuck saying here What if you have Your dishwasher on and you leave the house you put it. You don't I want to necessarily put it in a way moat because it may think okay. nobody's in the house. There's water running. I'm going to shut everything down to my. You thinking the hybrid is you. Don't put it in in a way mode but you do get the water sensors and you put those waters in your under your sinks in your toilets those areas. So you can now you are the the cop you realize that okay. There's water going on at the house but none of my sensors have gone off so I'm going to leave leave that and I think that's Kinda the best hybrid. The water sensors themselves aren't terribly expensive. I think they're anywhere from twenty five eighteen fifty dollars. So if you've got ten points in your house where you could have a potential leak. It's GONNA cost you about five hundred bucks but and the MON flow. We decided it was about eight fifty in salt. So so you're looking at thirteen hundred dollars for total protection against water leak so I think the answer is the combination of the Mohan flow and the The sensors and of course you could go chuck's route and install some sort of on off valve on all your water sources and to me. I think that would actually be a little bit more expensive. Yeah and there's so many to you know then they also was mentioned in the email. There's places that league like mine was a slab leak that there's no way to put a water leak detector in this lab so you have have to have something more like the Mohan to pick something like that up but yeah the false alarms are probably would be frustrating if it shuts off the water to your house when it shouldn't you know but something I think is better than nothing so but you may be able to do so. We don't know I. I just flag that when I was doing research there or maybe a way to say Water is running in the house for the next hour or whatever. You know what I'm saying because I've done the same thing where I've hit. Start on the dishwasher. Sure and then I've taken off but the dishwasher eventually stops so you say you know what disregard any water flow for the next hour and a half because is on at home And then you don't have an e then it goes on but then the issue is what happens if you are running your dishwasher her but there actually is a leak so you got an hour and a half of where the water is going to be leaking. Nothing is perfect but I think this helps you quite a bit right and peace of mind. At least right. Yeah so I need to get that scheduled to get installed. 'cause I'm really kind of excited about this all right and it's now time to jump off a little news and Roku says it won't be long before streaming revenue ECLIPSES TV streaming video. Video has been one of the biggest growth stories of the past several years but even with all the attention has been paid to the space. The industry is nowhere near full maturity according to an executive streaming platforms ROKU INC in the long run the total addressable market for streaming video is all TV money period said Scott Rosenberg senior senior vice president and general manager of roku platform business over the top or ot streaming in his words. Let's advertisers do things that they've gotten used two in digital but hasn't been possible on TV such as individually targeting consumers based on user specific data Rosenberg compared the industry specifically streaming streaming related advertising to the early days of smartphones when usage far outpaced. How much advertisers focused on them? He cited a study that suggested twenty nine percent of TV viewing was happening outside of the traditional model. Although only three percent of TV ad budgets were being allocated streaming services with that imbalance will correct in a pretty accelerated fashion over the next two or three years he said in a phone interview marketers are starting to move their money and once it begins to happen a pace we'll we'll see significant outflow and this scares me a little bit that we're going to get more commercials in streaming services. Hopefully they can find a way to do it without just bombarding us with commercials but it is interesting that you've got twenty five percent of viewing is coming from essentially over the top streaming only three percents of ad budgets. They're yeah imagined when we first started this podcast streaming was just in. It's like beginnings a we've gone such a long way but I think there will be an option to work for instance is on the CBS APP. You could pay a little bit more money and get the non-commercial I think there will be a way where you can do the same thing I'm hoping because the I.. Hey Commercials Watch something live. It's just it just sucks it through commercials. Yeah and anytime you want something live you instinctively actively Kinda hit the skipper fast forward button. Nothing happens as it's annoying. All right and then youtube wants to make it easier for people to watch control on how full youtube experience experience on any device of their choosing in a blog post published late last week the platform outline changes its product team made to its mobile APP. Sincere you're including a new feature that allows people to voice search on either IOS or android even with their phone even while their phone is casting passing two TV for example. You can search for dinner recipes on your phone and then Content will show up on your TV. That fits what you're hoping to find the company also so says it now allows people to watch videos in HDR when streaming from playstation four or playstation for pro right and Congress Congress passed a law banning. One of the cable industry's most despised practices. Congress in recent days past the Television Viewer Protection Act of Twenty nineteen so that was obviously a couple days ago includes a ban on hidden cable fees among the consumer friendly benefits of this legislation. Many any of which you thought should have been standard operating procedure already but actually weren't pay. TV operators are required to disclose the total price of a package before or a customer signs on the dotted line for it with that disclosure including all charges fees and everything else. That's going to go into it. Those operators will will also be prohibited from charging customers a fee for the equipment that they don't use customers will have the right to cancel service within twenty four hours of being told the total cost Faucet package at the point of sale and they won't have to pay a penalty to get a sense of all the extra costs that get added to your bill cable companies routinely charged urge fees for routers and cable modems all sorts of administrative inconvenience fees regional sports fees installation fees and more all of which are currently legal. All but they don't disclose them in your. Hey Twenty nine ninety nine a month package they get added to your bill later on now they have to tell you everything that's in the package. That's it's Pretty Rad. I really liked. This is interesting When I was in Rome just a few days ago I want to go buy something in a gift shop in Rome for the weekend? Is that what happened with you. Man said ten euros and I went to the store pulled out a ten euro note. gave the guy that walked walked away. I really liked it. I don't know why in the US we do plus tax. I kinda understand where they want you to know. Oh this is how much the product costs. And then you'll have to deal with the tax later words in in all of Europe you don't know how much is tax and it not I. I don't know that it matters even but it's Kinda Nice if you have two things in your hand one says ten euros the other one says five. You know it's GonNa cost you fifteen dollars. That's word this is going and I I kinda like that with the cable. It just like you know what you're GONNA pay thirty dollars a month. I don't care what fees they are if you look at your your builders like equipment equipment fees there's city fees all these fees so your twenty five dollar a month plan ends up costing you thirty dollars. What if they just said it's GONNA cost you thirty thirty two dollars a month for this? I think that's great and I think we need to do more of that here on on everything it would just be a lot better well. There's no sales tax in Oregon so in Oregon but it's weird in California like sales tax varies by county and even sometimes by city within a county. So you don't even know how much taxes GonNa GonNa be when you go buy something to all depends on where you are. It is pretty random. Yeah we'll think about when you buy a car you go make your deal and you say okay you you agree on twenty five thousand dollars and before you know they. They print up this long piece of paper with everything. Registration Blah Blah Blah. Before you know it at twenty five thousand dollars cars thirty thousand on dollars it'd be Kinda cool if they said okay. We're GONNA mark up the price to include all that stuff. This is the price you're GONNA pay All right that's my new goal for twenty twenty to make that happen in the United States are TCL brain. This is yours TCL Will Challenge Ola dominance imminence at CAS two thousand twenty with his new mini led DVD's. Now we've talked about micro. Led meany is kind of like a step to get there. And I'm I'm really excited about this. I'M GONNA go check this out when I'm there next week The Schenn's then based TV manufacturer announced onset is bringing its latest crop of many led TVs to the show and they could pose a real threat to LG's dominance many led TV's for those was who missed their debut a few years ago use smaller led's to allow for more precise control over TV backlight while they don't offer Pixel by Pixel so brightness control The same Ola does many can get much brighter than all ED and they make a world of difference when it comes to displaying. HDR content expectancy the number of new models announced during TCL's keynote. At this fall that falls on Monday January. Sixth Wchs at Twelve PM in Vegas okay. So here's the cool thing would the direct Lit led's you can have. I think is many as what what five hundred zones. Something like that but would many. I think you can have like a thousand or something so I said that I should have checked this out before I I read that but Here we're going to use the computer many led zones. Yeah I think like five thousand maybe an But the ones that they have currently listed at the website the eight series. I think only go up to seventy five inch so I've got my fingers crossed that at. CAS are going to announce an eighty and eighty two and eighty five inch something bigger and that will be my TV Al.. pull the trigger and pull well. I'll wait for you to give me the re your review on it and tell me what Oh you think of it when you see it at CAS but if it is as good as the buzz around it you know and the hype that might be that might kill my analysis paralysis. Right there and I'll go out and get another I would love to see that but Yeah so they can have as many as twenty five thousand many. Led's rate across the back of a TV and then they said the other ones you know anywhere from five hundred a little bit higher. So that gets you. I think enough resolution an obviously it's not pixel by Pixel 'cause you need you know what is it Millions right to do work ATV but how often do you need to address every pixel. We're every pixel something different. I think this is actually gets you close enough and it may be the best compromise I kind of excited about this. Like I said I'M GONNA go check this out when we get to see. Es and get you a quick analysis Ossis and hopefully end this for you once and for all our and our our last news ish story. WE'RE GONNA post this up at the website in case you WanNa do some research. It's a guide to TV and streaming device privacy settings. The article gives readers insight on adjusting SMART SMART TV and streaming platforms privacy settings including those on Samsung. TV's roku devices Amazon. Fire TV streamers. It explains automatic content recognition in software which recognizes images on screens. So if you want to do some research on how to make sure that you've got your privacy settings dialed in right hit up. At Dot Com. Click on the link to this article and dig around all right and since Brayden and I record it. Seems like ages ago Really early before Christmas. A lot of time went by which is why we had had a lot of emails and a lot of news. So we just got a really light Feature for the end here it's an article over at Ktar news it was probably in other places as well but anyway it's here's how to create a separate network for smart home devices and I believe Brayden. We have talked about this in the past but ah allot Listeners probably bought some home automation devices. And we think is probably a good idea to go over it because security already. Would these devices before Christmas. We saw the article about the ring cams some people. It wasn't really like they hacked into it but they were able able to guess passwords and kind of get into the system but So what is a good way to protect your system in. This article has three options. Yeah so the answer is the FBI office in fact if you want to know who this comes from in Oregon chimed in on the security associated with Iot and they are warning like you said that you know. Maybe you aren't concerned about a cyber criminal getting in adjusting your thermostat but it's not thermostat. That's the issue. The thermostat is the doorway. They get in. That gets them access to your router from your router everything else that's connected to it. So option one they say way is to run two completely separate networks. They say this is the most secure but the least cost effective and probably the most frustrating you actually have to separate Internet connections with each using its own router you can either contact your ISP for a second connection or opt for a second connection from another ISP if you want outage insurance but this would be two completely separate networks to connect different connections to the Internet. Everything that sensitive to your computers offers and banking information all on its own network and all of your iot devices on a totally different network so I wonder if you can even do that from the same Internet providers providers say look I just want to networks come in here but would you need. I guess he will do it all through Wi Fi. There wouldn't be any devices that were connected physically 'cause you'd also also need to physical networks. That was what you were doing. Well you'd have to go to wherever it all of your ethernet connections are home. Run in and run some of those was to one of the routers and some to the other. And if you're doing hardwired and you know that the IOT devices hardwired connections go into Iot router it'd be kind of a headache but you would would. Have you could split up. Essentially the wires going through your houses your house into two different networks. Why when you plug something in which network is connected? The two right. I'm thinking about my home here. All My internet devices are wire. Oh wait a minute. My Hugh is connected to my router physically. And then it's wireless from there so yeah I would have to do something along those lines. Okay option to one router but separate. SS ID's most current routers. Routers have the ability to set up a guest network which is separate from the primary network to activate his option. You need to go into the router setting and look for a reference to a guest network so the the question I have for you Brayden and maybe some of our. It experts could a respond. If you set up a guest network is does the router isolate that network from the rest of your home network. Does that's the point of the guests network. Okay Yeah Obviously I. I'm thinking about out of because otherwise you just give your friends the regular network but this way okay. That's actually probably the easier way to go. Just create something like You know I don't know you name it. Something that makes sense. Is that something you'd consider doing. Yeah the only frustration you have there. Is that in order for you to connect to any of your IOT devices. You can't really do it on the local network unless you take your phone phone and move it over to the guest network. Your phone has to be connected to the the correct Wi fi network in order for it to work And so you flip over and jump over two guests network to control your iot devices and then back over to your regular network to control you know to be part of you know where your computers and laptops and stuff are All I kind of have to do that now. Did if they're all internet connected then you could just be on your regular home network and go through the Internet to get back to your own house control your IOT devices But you know you just have to make sure if you WANNA do on local Kinda on the land you'd have to switch back and forth between the two networks. Why kind of do that now? Well yeah that's right. I only need to do that sometimes when I added device because if they don't support five Gigahertz you have to put your phone on your two point point four gigahertz network Mind both happened to be named Well One says five Gigahertz and one has the name of the network And then but once it's connected then I can switch back over to five gigahertz because then my router just assumes it all as one network regardless of what band frequency quincy using. But if you're bridges those two right if you were to. If you were to create the guest network you know longer would have that so effectively in your own house you would be you talking to your your home automation as if you were outside of your house is what I think what you're saying. Yeah 'cause the were is frustrating and I was doing this for a while. Is You have both of those networks In your phone or your tablet or your laptop or whatever and they're both auto connect so that when you get home it just connects to Wi fi and you don't really know which one it's going to connect to. Sometimes it'll to one. Sometimes it will connect to the other and then you know you're frustrated because hey this thing that I want to do isn't working because I'm connected to the wrong WIFI and or it happens to like my wife's phone and she's like. Hey how come. Nothing's working and because it's connected to the wrong Wifi so it can get frustrating waiting but I guess if you have not devices and only IOT devices on that guest network then you could say okay. Well I'M NOT GONNA make that one in auto connect. I'll just manually connect whenever I I need to get to those devices right. or Yes that that's exactly the the right solution okay. And then option three and they say the most complicated approach which is to use two separate routers use a single Internet connection but two separate routers that are properly connected and configured connecting them improperly won't achieve the security goal of isolating your Iot devices at depending upon how they're set up You're going to need a number of configuration steps required as well it. It isn't something that they would recommend. Unless you or someone that you know is that it can help. You is really network savvy And it is. It is complicated to use one Internet connection and get two totally separate routers going through that one Internet connection. It's easy to add. More routers as kind of wireless access points or bridges or gateways but then they're all ended up being connected to the same network so you're not getting the isolation that you want getting two separate routers to that same Internet connection can be complicated complicated and it does take a little bit. It know how to get it set up so you can't do a bridge if that's what you're saying about using extra access points in my house what I've done with my cable company gave me a wireless router but I already had a A wireless network in here what I did was I put the wireless network into bridge mode so all it did was it was it would pass all the network information over to the router and the router would hand out the IP IP addresses. But as far as Wifi goes it came from my wireless my My old router And then I just turn the wireless off off on the router that the cable company gave me but interesting point. I was at my mother-in-law's house we got a new router. And I had a What was it the Hang on absolute my phone net gear. Obi is does that make sense. Yeah I think so or be or be so so I connected that in and didn't do anything to it and I have to networks. It works running in my mother-in-law's house and it it just worked so I didn't say put this in bridge mode or whatever. I don't know why it's working but it's working working so there are two distinct. Se devices what is it s as ID devices coming off the routers and it's working so I may be the orbi handles that automatically. I believe that under the covers they are bridge to even the ones broadcasting one. SSI and the other one's broadcasting passing another you connect to let's say the Orbi it's Bridge to the other router so there are connected essentially to the the same network but you're connecting through almost like a guest network work in that case but the guest network is bridge so that they're connected okay so it was automatic. Because I didn't want to put my setup here I actually went in and told the router you're in bridge mode but I didn't do that with the Orbi so it must've said okay this guy's handing out Ip addresses so I'm just going to bridge bridge. You Oh yeah. I think what's happening there. Essentially as the orbit getting an IP address from the other router and then turning around and saying okay. I'm GONNA use this. Ip Address as my Internet like my Wayan Ip Okay and then it hands out other IP addresses to whoever connects to it but then because it's ran Ip is actually the other router is routing all that information through that other router. So it's through that other network network now. I'm not an I could be. You know you know wrong in this but my gut tells me that this essentially routing that all of its orbit orbi traffic through that other router so it is on the same network. You know what I should go. Look at what the Ip addresses are because one could. Do you know the typical one. Ninety two dot one sixty eight dot blah blah blah And there's other ones that are like ten dot one dot whatever I what if they're handing out different IP addresses so it just doesn't matter they're never going to they're never going to collide. Is that makes answers that evening. But even if they're in the same The same range they're essentially isolated because we're on different. SSID's connecting to different antennas or different. Okay Yeah wireless access points so to speak but those two access points are connected together right. So they're both talking. Okay yeah so I'm not an it guy just a software guy. I know there's a lot of complexity was all that stuff. I can't set up a network but that's about it so I guess a option twos away to go. Yeah if you don't need a guest network like you aren't constantly having guests over and telling them hey connected this network because I don't want you to connect to my sensitive stuff. Then using your guests network is by far the easiest way to go a right and that is it for today's show Hopefully you enjoyed a a wonderful new year and if you're having trouble setting resolutions my advice to my boys was keep all your bad habits because Mama didn't raise no quitters but I resolved resolved to go watch some more.

Wichita Life Podcast #32 - Daniel Mariotti
"So my advice would be go for it. It's never easy. You're never going to have everything lined out. You're never gonNA have enough money. You're never gonNA have enough time. Things will be difficult right but right now so many people are being pushed out of the market because they made poor investment decisions in the recent That there's going to be a big opportunity for people willing to take those risks Welcome to another episode of show. Podcast minded Muslims today. Sponsor is Oprah Espresso cafe. Au primos doing everything. They can to keep their employees paid and stay open as long as possible. During this pandemic there are also helping lead the front to support small business in Wichita during these hard times go check out. L. PREMO as central woolen or on the ground floor of the epic center. Downtown today's guest is Daniel. Mariotti owner of our sponsor Il Primo. Daniel is a transplant to Wichita and after leaving college and a few years after college he came back and got into real estate. We talk about his journey into getting into the coffee industry and Owning Primo. And what? It's like to run a business in Wichita in twenty twenty and German conversation with Daniel Mariotti already. So I'm here with Daniel Mariotti. How're you doing Daniel? I'm doing well all right. We're glad to have you been wanting to do this on for a while. So I'm glad we're finally getting it even if we have to be a socially safe distance so but can you just tell the listeners. A little bit about yourself. Yes so I. I'm not Kansas Transplant I was born in Southern California and my whole family moved here in two thousand one. So I'm the oldest of five so it was seven of us. It was definitely more economical to move to Kansas to to grow a family than it was in southern California Chair and So I went from living in a cul de sac off off the San Bernardino Mountains. An hour and a half to seven acres in the middle of nowhere right. It was a little bit of a culture shock I bet. Did you have any family in Kansas before that grandparents or anything? No so my mom. My mom was raised in Johnson. County And so she had lived here But her family since moved back to Memphis Gotcha on and so it. Was you know it was a little bit of like sticking Dart on a map and and picking it and I was young at the time so it was? The whole family didn't really have a choice. We were moving right. That's understandable. Yeah actually my family actually moved to ichitaro andover in two thousand one as well from Nebraska so at the same time line. So Yeah Yeah. We'll world was falling apart here in Kansas Right. Yeah no it was. It was weird coming here. And seeing that dynamic you know the Boeing shutting down and moving in in the way that kind of left a sour taste in everybody's mouth for a long time chair it gave certainly gave me the impression that I wanted to get anywhere but here right There was no sense of pride in the city year. The state and So I finished high school here and then went to college in Missouri actually went to College of the ozarks. Cuck yeah. I don't know if you're familiar with that. Yes Yeah I was. GonNa say that's I think that's about all I know about it. So yes yes so super cool if you get accepted there there's about fifteen hundred students that go there. It's outside of breeze. Missouri and what? The whole campus is run by students on so mowing the lawns milking the cows. You know feeding everybody there. Every possible thing you could do is done by the students in that pays for your tuition. That's really cool. Yeah does awesome so I I got to go there and got to graduate debt free. Which was a huge thing for sure. Yeah it was. I didn't didn't appreciate it as much at the time of the deal. That was what your degree. I was an international business management. Very cool. Yeah that's awesome. Yeah so it. It sounded fun and I wanted to travel. I wanted to do stuff. Yeah So so I got a degree in that and then after that I moved to Washington. Dc and worked out there for several years as a political fundraiser. Which was awesome asked job. I've ever had. I got to be a party planner. Essentially for sure and that was really cool. I got to kind of you know. Politics is always been ashes. Mind so kind of seeing how. The sausage is made from From the inside on help bills work in how people were across army lines very interested in it was awesome but anyway so I met my wife in Branson while I going to school out there and we move together you're out to DC and quickly realized. Even though I had a good job was making good money realized I couldn't really grow something for myself I was I was spending a ton of money over half my paycheck every month to live in an apartment right it was terrible and so. I talked to my family. My father's always been involved in real estate. And so there was an opportunity for us to move back to Wichita and Kinda grow our own real estate portfolio here rental properties buying in selling their and some small commercial stuff And so we moved back almost five years ago. Now and and jumped headfirst into the real estate business. Another one of the business is called investors houses company. And it's a franchise business when we own the one here for the central part of Kansas And WE WENT FROM YOU. Know buying and selling four or five properties a year to well over sixty and so we were able to. Kinda get involved when things were really really good and really busy and grow ourselves from having no rental properties to dozens. So so that's been a real good thing for us and are you. Are you still in that market as well still doing the flips in buying and selling yup? Yup So we're still doing that. You know things are are weird right now. You know that. Everything's kind of on ice. The real estate market itself is still considered an essential business. So it's still operating but there are a lot of things in the real estate market that are that are difficult right now. The Corona virus being won right. It's kind of compounded by everything else that's going on at the same time election year Is always difficult in the real estate market because just like the Stock Market. Uncertainty is is terrible for it You know during the two thousand sixteen election there was between June in the election in November. People stop buying and selling people froze interest on the retail market was still okay but but the investor market froze over just weren't making decisions until they had certainty catching we were starting to feel that At the start of this year but then the corona virus has put everything on ice. You know they're still strong. Demand out there for the retail properties. And of course the investor market is still somewhat active. But everything's gone on. It was going one hundred miles an hour and now it's five right. Yeah I guess I I definitely would have thought I mean corona viruses affecting anything and everything right now but I guess I I mean I'm not into real estate. We are in a house now but I didn't realize like election year. Had so much to do with the real estate market and everything like that so interesting especially from an investment perspective. Yeah because anytime you have the changing of the guard Politically people move their money. Accordingly right you know. Love them or hate him. Sam Brownback had passed some tax reform changes that allowed pass through income from rental properties to not be taxed at the same rate and two years ago that got repealed gas children once Laura. Kelly changed that law and Started taxing pass through income removed some of their money out of the rental portfolio the market. So that changed and an incoming into the next election cycle people are nervous about and again I will say that right now with the stock market crashing. Right up there is a move into real estate. It's much more secure safe. Riots trying to diversify a little bit exactly exactly to switch gears a little bit from real estate so in I believe it was February of two thousand nineteen. You bought your first. Oh Primo is that correct? That personal -cation. Can you just talk about? Why Il Primo? Why a coffee shop? Did you ever think you a coffee shop this? Tell me about that story. So it's the story of the ideal Primoz great because I live not too far from there and I've been a customer for many many years and I'm a big community guy community value. Whatever we can do to to to build everybody up together at half places where people can gather and support each other and I had seen over the years. Is that place. It kinda degraded degraded degraded to the point. Where the product was bad. The service was bad in overall. It was just a place where I was working wasn't working out. I stopped going and then in in December of twenty eighteen the real estate market was a little slow twins on so I was looking for something to diversify myself with so Fortunately the previous owner Lipped out of state and was interested in in moving on from. Yeah so we were able to work something out to where I can take it off and so I took it over in February of Twenty nineteen and Really focused on bringing it back to life. You know taking it from a spot that was torn down though the interior of it was in real bad condition and bringing it back to a point where people can be proud of it. If you want to be there right very cool and did you ever think you would own a coffee shop leading up to that. No you know it's funny. I have no experience in the in the food industry and what I knew was. It was an operational issue people foreign wide in which I know approval so oldest coffee shop in town. It's been there before starbucks was the thing and it's got great brand loyalty right. What need it was operational? Fixes needed someone to be able to hold the staff accountable. And it'd be hands on right so I had no desire to own a copy or what I was doing. It was a lot of learning right off that. But what I braced was the concept that it had tremendous community value fixed the operation side of it if I increase the quality of the product and the service people would come back right. There may have cracked for sure there. We go come back so I think besides some of the just the operational stuff and I mean I go there quite a bit. And there's a wide diverse menu and everything but another way that you kinda incorporated the community aspect was a lot of local art k. Talk about that a little bit. Yeah so again. Lot of learning on the go but my focus when I took it over was to bring the community back to their a thousand places that you can go and get a good cup of coffee but there aren't as many places that embrace every aspect of community inside so it was important for me that I that when I took it over. I bring local people into showcase what what what's important to everyone in the community has brought in a bunch of local artists Hunter. Ramallah's one of shows on the on the big wall mural in the back of our logo. She's also done some artwork for some of our coffee bags which is great yeah but it was astounding to me the response. I got from people once I started bringing in that local art because people like to be able to see their stuff on the walls and they like to be able to appreciate other people's Contributions to the community where they get to go and enjoy a good cuppa coffee or a nice meal right and I think I mean addition in kind of go in the direction of what I do but it's been awesome to just whenever I've gone in there except recorded five or ten podcast and it's cool because somebody's always. I'm setting up there even just the clientele that you have is like. Oh Hey what are you? What are you up to? That's so cool off to check that out. Just cool to see the support from even just a clientele. That's in there at six in the morning or six in the evening. It's cool to see who comes in. Yep No it's great because that's coffee places where people gather days You know we're so disconnected as a society now. Everybody has a phone. Has Social Media? Talk about social distancing right now but honestly if we look at it. We've been social distancing for a long time. Yeah the only differences now were told to stay. Oh doing it on our own. And the one place where people continue to gather are coffee shops restaurants bars etc so for me to be able to give people a place where they're comfortable that as great atmosphere to continue to gather and share things together. Yeah it's beautiful absolutely and then so I mean you didn't even own premo for a year and you expanded downtown. What was the mentality behind that? Are you planning more expansions? What is that look like? Yes so we were really fortunate. We were approached by a rough and company to open downtown in the epic center. And you know again. I knew nothing about the restaurant industry and really took a leap of faith on and that locations different in that it's a kiosk operator should. So we operate on the ground floor of the epic center and we mostly service the clientele. The building and I was surprised when we started that really. People were hungry for a good quality food product. Good coffee as quick as they can possibly get Brad. We're we're at a point in our professional careers where taking the one one and a half hour lunches is a thing of the past Ron and get as much as we possibly can done in the time that we have to do it and then move on so it really served the building well and we've been able to succeed because of that. Yeah absolutely and just attach on that Just so if people don't know about a premier don't know about those locations. It is pretty much a full food menu right. I mean you can get sandwiches. Whatever for lunch and everything. Yup Breakfast and lunch were open from seven to two Monday through Friday. And you can get whatever you need here. It is open to the public but the vast majority of our clients are here in the building. Are you are you looking at expanding? I mean maybe not right now because of everything going on but are there plans in the future to try to maybe like a West location or anything like that. Yeah so we've been approached about opening another location on the east side in one of the other office buildings and I'd say you know stay tuned for that. There's a possibility that that happens here. In the next couple of months we've been looking at a couple of west side locations but again it has to be a good fit for us. Absolutely the corona virus is kind of thrown a wrench and a lot of things. Yeah but we're we're heavily focused on taking care of our employees and and making sure that they're doing well during all of this stu right and that's important because I didn't go. There are a lot of companies that I mean whether they wanted to or not but they had to chop a lot of staff in a lot of part time people in Yup. So that was. That's been a really deep struggle for me personally as well because you know when all this started coming down we were on the front lines and there was the very true reality that we would probably have to start cutting staff and things back in maybe look at shutting our doors as well and We got together as a team and just decided that it until they locked the doors behind us. We're going to keep things going. You're not making money. We're we're struggling like everyone else's but I told the staff that might commitment to them when I hired them was to make sure they got paid right. So we're GONNA do that until there's no more money left in just a touch on that a little bit more. You guys put up a sign. And you guys like you said you're kind of at the forefront of pushing to help support the local small businesses. Not just yourself but everybody with the we will persevere sign and just. I mean again to supporting everyone else. How can people help support you guys and everybody else? You guys have your drive through open but what are the. What are those ways that people can help you guys it just just keep coming through the drive thru if you can come see us if you can't You know we understand. That were just were here To to kind of be beacon of hope that's why we put the sign up there You know in all of the struggles that we've had is a country we we've been knocked down time and time again throughout our history. You Know World Wars nine eleven Vietnam every struggle. We've had from natural disaster to manmade. We've we've been knocked around but we've always come together and So I wanted to put something out there to kind of say. Listen WE'RE GONNA get through this we will persevere through this role in this together And and at some point we come out the back end. This will all be better for it absolutely just attention a couple more things business related obviously again besides the code stuff going around right now the last even since. I was in high school ten years ago. There has been that resurgence of kind city. Pride and now even more small business entrepreneurs what do you think the status of all of that stuff is which is. Where do you see that going? And that's kind of a hard question answer on the spot but like again. We've seen kind of a resurgence in like I mean cool. Coffee shops were like microbreweries. Do you have any idea what direction that can be going? Yes so that was one of the reasons why it made sense for me to get involved in the coffee shop. Wichita has so much more pride than it did Garissa in the development. That you're seeing in Wichita is a result of that prive right and and it really winds to a fertile ground for growth for entrepreneurs and small businesses coffee shops etc I I think that in light of the corona virus. There's GonNa be some struggle. Personally I have a lot of friends who are struggling with it but I vote that as we kinda get out of this. It's an opportunity for for the people who invested correctly and we're careful right to to have even better growth than they would have had before. I only positively as far as opportunity At during this and after this But I think in the short term it is going to set a lot of that back at least for the next year right but I think he can. I mean you can have a look at it like the economy right. If it's going to go down and it looks. I mean it can be down thirty percent right now but it's like if you stay the course and you keep keep going as you would. Eventually the gains will come back and even bigger at some point exactly exactly. It's all about being conservative right and making sure that you don't overextend yourself Yep What advice would you have for entrepreneurs then kinda coming out of this or just kind of general? If this wasn't happening what advice would you have for a First Time Entrepreneur in Wichita Twenty Twenty I think I think the advice I would have is is is go for it You know right now. We're at such a beautiful stage of of of life in our economy in the world. Technology is taking off in ways that we couldn't have imagined it ten five twenty years ago and leads to such low barriers of entry for such for so many different industries and So my advice would be go for it. It's never easy. You're never going to have everything lined out. You're never gonNA have enough money. You're never gonNA have enough time. Things will be difficult right but right now so many people are being pushed out of the market because they made poor investment decisions in the recent That there's going to be a big opportunity for people willing to take those risks absolutely Is there anything else you WANNA touch on with the coffee shop before research ears? A little bit. I think I think the only thing that that I would say is were making a commitment to keep all of our employees paid through this time. And it's it's not easy I can tell you that the coffee shop itself doesn't support it But we're doing it. Because that was the commitment that we made to the team and Every single one of those people is the reason why the coffee shop is successfully exists at all. Now we're going to keep making sure that everybody gets paid until until we get back to normal awesome and I mean that not only builds a loyal employee base. But I think that again just builds into the community you took over and that you've kind of helped flourish even more. That's just going to continue to build on itself. Mix it up a little bit. These are some questions that I kinda borrowed from some other podcasts. And that kind of thing but what is something that you often recommend people whether it's a book or a podcast or anything like that so the first thing that I always recommend the people who are who are looking at being entrepreneurs or or kind of going off on their own in different things is to get involved with the David Sake. Rich Dad poor and educate yourself on the difference between the difference in in business methods between David Sake and I'm going to forget his name now. but there's another gentleman who preaches debt free living. Dave Ramsey Dave Ramsey and the differences between those methods. Because you have to decide early on which direction you'RE GONNA go. And those two differences will determine how your business grows one of them leverages debt yet which is opportunity and the other one focuses on really conservative manner of of cash cash cash cash. And you need to understand those differences before you make any decisions moving forward. Yeah absolutely what is favourite failure in any ass derive? I'd say the the biggest failure that I've had that was a big. Learning experience for me was a partnership that fell apart. And you know we. I had been involved in a partnership in the real estate industry And and it ended up falling apart. Lost a lot of money because of it But the lesson that I came out of it was the no matter how much you feel like you've lost. They're still so many lessons to learn during those difficult times even the Times that we're going through right now we're bleeding money every single day. It's tough out there. But every single day we learn lessons about each other about ways to to streamline things where you know we may have been a little lax on our spending or there are things that we can cut back and learn from so that when times are good. We're still lead absolutely. I think that's the biggest thing is you come out and you're a lot more lean but you're optimized which will help when things are good in booming here in the next few months hopefully yeah. What is your definition of success? That's hard that's hard because personally You Know My wife tells me all the time. It'll be difficult for me to ever see success because I look at success is having another opportunity. I I'm the type of person that will never be satisfied with having what I have now. Not because I want more but because I use it to build to the next thing yeah next project to the next opportunity so for Success Romy is how is succeeding in what. I'm doing to where I can have the next opportunity. Yeah absolutely What is a life model that you live by? Or what is some of the best advice you've ever received so this one is probably not for everybody but in College. I had one class. It was a corporate finance class. I learned the time value of money principle. And that is the most important thing to me in my life period. What states is that? The value of money that you have today is exponentially higher than the money that you'll have tomorrow because you can invest the money that you have today to create returns for tomorrow man. That's a principle that I've lived by since I started in the real estate business and it will serve everyone well to learn that principle chair. Do you think most people understand that or do you think that's something that not the majority? Don't understand now I don't think the majority understand F- Because it's it's different than saying if only I had money today I'd be fine. Well it's not. I'm not talking about money that you have today to live or money that you have today to pay your bills. It's about the opportunity that you can create with what you have today build on what you can have tomorrow. Yeah hundred percent young. So it's it's it's one of those things that that defers temporary joy right for future growth chair and I think that's really important at what is a habit that you've developed over the past few years as most improved your life Getting up every single day ready to go to work there. Especially as an entrepreneur. There's opportunity to become lax in what you're doing. Yeah lax and how? You're living what your routine is what your schedule is. Because you said it yourself right But for me early on I had to plan to get up. Get out of bed and be at work by a certain time every morning. Sugar and Getting up getting dressed being ready for the day every single day has has set the bar for me to be able to move forward in be productive every day as a practical tip or step. Do you play on like the night before or like Sunday leading into the week. Do you play the week. How do you plan for your day your workday or Workweek? Yeah so my are so scattered I tell you. I'm always never available now. Cell creating a calendar. Google calendar is super easy to is a great resource. I started using that several years ago. And that's made my life so much easier. Sure everything goes on my Google calendar and that's made it to where I can look for you know in the evening. I look towards the next day understanding that. I've got these five or six things that I have to be prepared for for the next day. Yeah and it also gives you once you start using it regularly gives you a guideline for your week your month and what you need to accomplish in time. Yeah I know at least one person if not multiple people that I've interviewed before Jason Teams being one of them He. If it's not on the calendar it doesn't exist so he pretty religiously so I need to get more into. I've tried it a little bit but I think I need to make that happen. That'd be held. It's it's so easy because It's integrated with everything but it keeps you on time. It keeps you notified and it keeps you engaged with all those small tasks. It's helped me to stop procrastinating tasks that I need to accomplish. It goes on Google calendar for a certain time during the day when it comes up. That's the time I need to accomplish that whether I like it or not. Yup Makes Sense You said a few more questions about Wichita. I'm so what is your favorite part of Wichita? You have a hidden gem or in restaurant or again however you interpret hidden gem. Well I think as far as a small thing in wichita that's kind of Jim the Kennel Club's amazing you've never been there hasn't thirteenth end. Would on the back rape food. It's an old speakeasy. I haven't heard this one. So yeah it's been around forever. It was started as a speakeasy miracle. It's one of the only places. Actually it is the only place in Wichita. You can still smoke inside. It was really. I'm so it's got Greek food. It's an awesome place. I love everything about it. I my favorite part of Wichita. I'd have to say it's probably the College Larrea. Yeah I'm I'm in Real Estate Housing Geek and I love architecture. And there's so many great homes beautiful buildings In that area that I think are under appreciated. A lot of ways. I don't think it gets much more unique as far than the College Hill neighborhood. Every house has different. They all different layout. They're all older. Homes is pretty cool. Yeah neural beautiful in their own way right. Is there anything you wish which had that? It doesn't or what would you improve about? What you're Tal- I think. The one thing that I think Wichita needs to work on is getting some of the some of the founding fathers of Wichita to race Building the city spirit a little bit more. There are certain people in Wichita. They have immense influence in financial resources. That for whatever reason have chosen not to be a large part of developing city and there are plenty of examples that you can look at and other cities Omaha and Berkshire Hathaway. Yeah Oklahoma City. Aubrey mcclendon. And I think that that Wichita meets some of those people to step up and really focus on developing the city at its core and this one last question. What does Wichita mean to you? It means family an opportunity. You know. It's it's the most perfect place I've found to raise a family in a community that embraces family. And it's it's a place where you can live reasonably And and grow with what you have down whether you've got a job where you make thirty thousand dollars a year a hundred thousand dollars a year. There's opportunities for you to on your own home. I and in able to build wealth for yourself and your family. Sure Awesome now. This is really fine. I appreciate you coming on.

There's a dirt winding road and San Bernardino County that can take you back in time. It's it's a road that takes you back to the bracken firm manner and Tudor House Bracken for manner and Tudor House was built in nineteen twenty six and was originally known as the crib while the Tudor House formerly known as club Arrowhead of the Pines became a social hideaway for Hollywood's elite. The Manor is ten room ten bathroom house that was said to have been used as a brothel during the prohibition while the Tudor House was used to help illegal gambling liquor and other illegal pastimes infamous mobster Benjamin Bugsy Siegel was set to funded the construction and built the locations as a sanctuary of escape for Hollywood's bigwigs aches and mob members which also left the manner to host a few deaths and suicides on the property what secrets lie within the walls and the prohibition tunnels of the manner do the spirits of the mob mobs still linger around the property and who is the negative entity bed habits the jasmine room in is it true that there's a demon that lurks within the Prohibition Tunnels Grab Your Voice Recorder as We Join O._C.. Golsen legends for a memorable lockdown at the infamous Bradford manner sit down with us as we interview the rest of the Oh seacoast and legends crew. Let's talk about crystals protection grounding and Charles Manson's ghost with dixie tendered Dini who is the psychic and medium of O._C.. Ghosts in legends definitely don't WanNa miss it on the creepy E._D._p.'s one on one shots with the patrons that experience experience something other worldly at the Bracken fern manner. Let's get holly weird as we locked down with. Oh See Ghost and legends side note. The following interview was recorded on me eighteen two thousand nineteen during a lockdown event at the bracken fern manner that was thrown and hosted by O._C.. Goes and legends. Please pardon any background noises that you might here during the interviews that were being conducted now. Let's get Holly Weird Nestled in San Bernardino national forest surrounded by Pine Cedar and Dogwood an altitude a fifty one hundred feet is Lake Arrowhead California an area described as the Alps of southern California in eighteen twenty six around that time about forty Pie Indians a very warlike tribe used the mountains for their hunting grounds. They lived in the high desert area. Many were killed in a fight with the white men of Little Bear Valley of course at the same in time a more peaceful tribe of Indians. The Serrano's lived very near Little Bear Valley in an area now known as rottkamp on the north side of the mountain they would take their old and sick to arrowhead hot springs for rejuvenation and healing they hunted in the Beautiful Foreign Bountiful Valley and live relatively peaceful somewhat nomadic lives descend into the desert highlands and warmer inland valley's during the winter months beneath historic Arrowhead sits the equally unique arrowhead springs the arrowhead springs as a place is deeply rooted in legend with the most ancient one possibly being passed down from native Americans. The legend goes the great spirit had an aero which was to guide the native Americans to the spot where they were to make their home the great spirit having selected the place fixed the Arrow it to market forever. It is believed that the native inhabitants of the San Bernardino Mountains thought the Arrowhead directed the way to the hot springs with healing properties and therefore considered it holy ground now we fast forward to the Nineteen Twenties and prohibition we touch on this subject in episode thirty on famous haunted Hollywood bars. Police were cracking down on the mob in the city so the mob moved their operations to less discreet areas one famous mobster who was rumored to lead this move was the notorious mobster Benjamin Benjamin Bugsy Seagal rumor hands it that bugsy talked the Chicago mob into backing his new venture which is now known as Bracken fern manner this alpine-style in opened as club Arrowhead in the Pines on July Fourth Worth Nineteen Twenty six the in had state of the art amenities such as electricity more importantly it catered to the rich and famous offering gambling illegal liquor and working girls other amenities included an Olympic emphasized swimming pool skiing tennis courts a bath house and more the brothel continued operations through World War Two although gambling was maintained in the speakeasy across the street up until nineteen fifty five today bracken friend manner is a certified historic landmark in the state of California across from the Bracken. FERN manner is where the gambling took place at the club now known as the Tudor House. The story has that when cops were on their way up the mountain from San Bernardino the administrators were alerted and gambling tables were actually turned over to appear as regular tables bracken firm manner claims to be haunted by a former working girl named violet. She killed herself after the mob killed her lover. You can still smell her. Violet Senate perfume wafting through the halls. Another is the ghost of a little boy who's also been seen at this historic in he is thought to be the son of a former prostitute and was trampled on by a team of horses today eight his tiny footsteps are often seen in the snow will so it is told after the end became successful bugsy convinced the bosses in Chicago to front him the dough for another little gambling adventure known as Las Vegas however bugs these lavish tastes caused him to go way over his one million dollar budget and ultimately cost him his credibility with Chicago and his life while he was having dinner one evening with his lover Virginia Hill L. at their Hollywood home bugsy was shot dead. Thanks girl for the little historical tip it on Lake Arrowhead and the historical Bracken fern manner. We just kept it a little Disney for you right there so you won't have a you know just a nervous breakdown even though some of our listeners were anticipating that so guys just a little side note if you do make your way to bracket fern manner it is a pretty interesting drive hype but once you hit the mountains I could see why the mobsters Hollywood elite really wanted to you know venture to this part. It is truly a sequestered area within the mountains and the roads once you hit the mountains or pretty winding and very narrow narrow so <hes> tread lightly around that area but the views are definitely worth it I make my way to the manner and I'm greeted by Oh seacoast and legends and I of course made a b line to their <unk> psychic and medium Dixie her Dini and I grabbed her immediately for the first interview with Dixie. It was always a pleasure to talk with her. We talked about grounding protection crystals and her little trip to Zach Zac Pagans haunted museum where she actually was hired to do a cleansing of his museum and you're not GonNa believe the things and the t that she had to share with me in regards the museum we go over what she felt and what she picked up on the land of Lake Arrowhead and guys it was a very very interesting interview and it's always a pleasure to speak with medium Dixie Tanto Dini and here's our interview so guys <hes> we're trying to follow up on our last interview and Dixie had reminded me that electronics just do no work in her presence so I'm hoping that we fingers crossed yet. They work this time. This will work nothing thing will fall from the sky or from the ceiling like last time David's house. He'll be okay so dixie. Give us a full name what she do for O._C.. Ghosts and legends and just you know talk about yourself and what you plan on doing tonight during the lockdown here at the reconfirmed manner yes so my name is dixie Tanner Dini. I am a psychic medium spiritual healer. I've pretty much had abilities my entire life and I started working professionally a few years ago. Oh and then now I am working with the team and doing <hes> psychic mediums deaf with them investigations and then I'm also going to be doing a workshop on Spertzel protection in an hour and just kind of helping people learn how to protect themselves when they go into environments like this. That's really good because you see a lot of shows in youtube channels of these you know green goes hunters and they just go in with a camera and no knowledge of their surroundings or whatever or presence is lurking in the dark and that's very important. Do you usually do these workshops like outside of course legends or just mainly just within you know they're walk-throughs or their hunts or lockdowns so I do assist in some psychic development classes in Santa Ana <hes> so I do stuff like that and then I also do educate people like through the investigations that we do the lockdowns just to Kinda. Give people a little heads up like hey if you're going to be doing this. This is the right way to protect yourself. So you don't have anything follow you home. I remember that from the David Omen House when I was sitting down with <hes> in the third floor with you and the guest the first group and you had this amazing table set out with Sarah night and candles and sage and then you had amazingly pendulums and like maps with Lake you know where the pendulum can you know you know swing right and left towards and I mean that was such a great opportunity for people to learn to learn how to do these things right <hes>. What what did you gather from that night at Diva Omens House? It was fun because that had actually been my first time there so it was a whole different energy but I made sure I protected the lower level and made sure that everyone was feeling comfortable and everybody was. I didn't want anyone to be afraid. I didn't want anyone to feel fearful or you know native or anything like that because I want the energy I want you to feel the energy yes but I don't want it to be a scary scary negative things for people. I want them to be able to know how to do certain things so that they can protect themselves and they are not afraid so then nothing is feeding off of that that's true yeah now. They were talking about the paranormal. Walk us through your beginnings with your relationship in the paranormal and your site so <hes> like I said we'll life I mean since I was a baby will ever since I can remember talking into spirits like they were just like regular people <hes> I actually grew up in a house that the previous owner had died in and he was you know as a spirit still living there so you know Lanman Hickenlooper was his name and I talked to him all the time and I didn't see it as anything bad and then through my teenagers you know after my mom telling me. Don't tell anyone you're gonNA. You're crazy. Just keep that in yeah and then I you know destructive behavior because I couldn't express who I really wanted to be and then finally one day it was like okay. I just want to be myself. I just want everyone to know like this is why do I don't WanNa be afraid of myself. I don't want other people to be afraid of me and this is the best this way for me to show people that psychics don't have to be all woo woo in some times creepy and read your palm. They worship fine. You know like I don't wear US hurbon. I don't I don't have a one eight hundred number none of that so I want people to see like psychics are just like you and me. It's not a costume. It's not a fad. It's it's actual human beings and everybody has this ability and anybody can work on in develop. It is just you have to go over the fear right so I want everyone to get over the fierce that they can be their true selves Jessica Way of putting in yeah what messages cheer for people who have your abilities that don't know how to <hes> approach it or how to control it or just go through life with it so psychic development classes. There's if you look online. There's a lot in a lot of returning areas yeah so L._A.. Orange County <hes> even I mean if you're not from California there's other places if you look upon lines like get development classes or workshops. There's so many things out there in the world that you could be educating yourself and not to be afraid of it because it's really as long as you know how to protect yourself. There's really nothing fear and I. I just want people to understand like it's not scary. It's not weird because everybody has it so just get over that fear and that stigma of what you think a psychic is and then I auto whereas outside on the porch guys we're just missing tea and gossip which will soon the Kling Kling uh-huh you feel like like you see a lot of those classes in workshops more so in California than anywhere else or I think there is more in California because more people in California or typically open to it. I'm seeing a lot more people nowadays being being open to the idea of it wanting to do things like this and there's so many things on T._v.. Now in the media it's like Oh look paranormal this and look at Aliens Dad and it's just like really that word is getting out in that acceptance. This is starting to happen. Yes so I feel like along more people are going to psychic development classes even if it's just to see if you have anything right so it's just for for some people's for fun and some people they wanna make a living out of it. Whatever way you're going to do it great so I I encourage everybody to do it? <hes> tell me what do you talk about in development class with individuals that are trying to. I guess like manage their gifts so it's a lot of protection obviously is the number one thing thing how to cleanse yourself how to clear yourself how to manage your abilities whether it'd be clairvoyance which is like clear seeing through your third. I clear audience you know hearing things feeling things clear sunshine like others so many different like Clair's <hes> subjects and there's other things like how to work a pendulum. I love that yeah loved that in <hes> that when we were downstairs that map in the pendulum it was so safely ah felt safe. I felt like good. This is how you do it not some like little teenage kid messing around with a Huiji board he bought on Ebay and the poor stigma that goes with that to g bore it depends on who's using it and how they're using it so we aren't bad. It's just you have to learn how to use these tools properly right so a lot of that psychic development to is learning how to use the tools properly only talking to things that are from the light sites. You don't WanNa talk to anything else because it's really not going to give you the right information anyway so it's doing the right things with the tools and learning how to discern what's negative. What's positive what I can talk to the different for feelings with that so there's there's a whole thing there's so many themes and so many subjects with it that I mean I mean I can go on for days and days and days tile? I know yeah remember last interview. We could man we had some amazing things there were brought up during that interview and things that happened say we cannot explain well you can. You're like all those them so tell me I'm a green goes hunter and I'm taking a workshop from you or to classroom you on how to on on protection water lake your top three <hes> you know items things for protection. That's awesome you already know so. There are three things plus. We Have E._S._P._N.. I'll sort central but yet you're there is three things so with protection. It's asking for guidance and that's the number one thing is you gotta ask because if you don't ask by the accordance of free will. They can't really do a whole lot because they don't want A. There's such a thing as divine intervention but it's better to ask and have that security so it's asking your guides it's asking your angels asking God source spirit sure it whatever you want to call it to come in and support you and just to protect you during that time of your uncertainty or if you're anxious or whatever's going on the number one thing is asking for it. Number two is shielding yourself so oh is asking your guys again to shield you in a protective field so when you go into an area nothing's going to get attached to you so energies can get attached to you. You don't want that suck you dry. You don't want it so it's either surrounding yourself in a white light like a cocoon of light light or gold laid. You know that's a really high vibrational color or any color you know that's going to like green is for healing purples for psychic development and blue as for communication so you can and I have a handout so I'm gonNA give everybody a hey yeah so it's there's a whole lot of things do shielding and then the strongest one is led so if you actually surround yourself in a cocoon of lead no thing toxic can get through. That's where you're in a really really negative environment where you think there's something going on here or if you're with a person that's extremely violent or something like that. Surrounding yourself in lead is really going to help okay <hes> so that's the number one like if you're in a bad situation kind of deal yeah but all the shields help the asking for help all those kinds of things and then number three is using some kind of object so crystals or a religious icon or talisman or something something. That's GonNa make you feel powerful. <hes> I'm going to go over crystals too so what protective crystals US black term lean hepatix. There's all kinds of crystals that will help you feel protected and they have an aura. I'll be talking about Auras rose and what they are and how you can protect it and things like that so those protective objects are GonNa help you feel more powerful along with the shield along with asking for help so those are the three number one things asked shield object. Ask Shield Object Okay S._A._A._O.. Guys Essay. Oh there you go we. We got the acronym for that now. <hes> had you ever had anyone approach you out of the blue and say you know Dixie. I have a problem I went goes hunting being I didn't protect myself and now something attached itself to me. Can you help yes so I am also a reiki master and a Karuna reiki master so what we can do as an energy healer is help detached those things from your aura <hes> and there there's also a woman. Her name is Margaret McCormick and I have her information. She does all kinds of removals and she doesn't from a distance so you never see her. You never have to do anything because there's distant healing. That's really what it is healing so she clears aura and she's surrounds your or afterwards with a protective shield. That's good for this lifetime so nothing will ever get attached to you ever again. I am in the process of learning that so I still I am still in the process but I am getting to a point where I'm going to be doing things like that so for her. She's like the top gun so Margaret McCormick it's W._W._w.. Dot Margaret McCormick Dot Com just look her up <hes> I think she goes by healing hands and you can. She has like she does does what's it called House clearings all by distance and <hes> she does animal clearings and planned clear everything she does everything so skies and I can do that too but she he does the lifetime protection. I don't know the triple a. of Psychic literally had her drew on me and I feel like after she did all my life has changed and my life was more positive and so many good things have happened from that so definitely recommend. If you feel like you have some kind of attachment to you go to a rookie master or some kind of spiritual healer even Shamans they can detach things from your aura as well or Margaret McCormack Ormoc so anybody I mean just do some kind of spiritual go to a healer because if we try to do it on ourselves it's Kinda hard yeah so if you're trained in how to do it like a rain astor is then it's a lot easier for us to go in and go okay you're done. You're clear whatever get out here. Don't get anything protect yourself but <hes> yeah so that's what I would recommend for anyone who feels like they have attachments. You can always ways surround yourself and those lie the white light and gold light and things like that but wants something is attached to your aura. You can't really get it out so you have to go to someone who can actually detach that for you does that work with axes that I actually so different thing so when we are attached to somebody and have a an invisible cord that is attached to them so when we become wow intimate with someone or when we were in a relationship and even with family so we can have cords attached family. When's your in a negative relationship and you have a court attached to that person and you don't know how to cut that cord then that's where you know you're still attached to that person in a sense so you can actually cut on your own so cutting cores is just imagining <hes> I what I like to tell? People and different psychics have different ways of doing it but you can do this on your own astor guys to help you cut your cords. Imagine agent a giant gold scissor. That's cutting that cord. That's attached to your navels his naval or whoever it is cut that cord don't let it reattach again right to stay away from guys. You've got your first lesson right here. Actually your second you. You can do on your own yeah so you don't need to go to anybody or anything like that and that will help you detach from that person so you can move on with your life and this doesn't happen just instantly this takes time right is part of the cut cords and or just a process of <hes> <hes> of healing and ray he work a lot of people are so used to supply an immediate demand. It's like they think it's Amazon. Prime like I'll get in a day. We'll go away you know within several hours right and I from what I heard Erdan. Some of these things Kinda take time is that right it depends on what it is so if you had a really severe attachment to someone it's really you being able to let it go so if you're not able to let it go but you still want that court cut yeah it is still there or you're not able to let it go. It's you have to realize that it's a negative relationship or whatever the case may be. Let it go you're done. You have to be done so if you're not done that. Court is still attached so once you have made that decision. You know what I want this Goan for my life. I WANNA move forward. I WanNa let it go. I WANNA cut the cord so it's just really going into a meditation asking your guides for help seeing that court cut and you have to stay true to that. You can't go but all the way back I wanna go because then they're not gonNA. You can't cry wolf with that stuff right because then it's going to be laying. Do you really want this or not. It's going to be a constant issue in your life so once you really make the final decision <hes> I don't want this anymore. Then that's when the court can be cut God when you're ready to Lego. That's like me embrace with iced coffee and chocolate man and cheese pizza. I don't want to cut them yet. She pizza or not done yet never thirty nine so let's go into brackenfield manner <hes>. What have you felt so far setting foot onto this property? There is a lot of different things to swirling around here <hes> the funniest. I know this probably shouldn't be funny. I actually I actually <hes> in one of the rooms when I stepped in to <hes> I can't even remember what room is. I'm going to have to go up and see I actually fell a drunk man stumble well and full-face burst into the wall and I I'm sorry but it was the residual things like that imprint Polish. I was probably most likely that man Eddie Murphy's crony. I'm like wow okay. I'm GonNa leave him alone and this is the spirit guys. This is not a returns here moaning. It's a drunk man. It's already he's drunk. He's going to be sleep it off. Just let him sleep it off. He'll be fine fine. That was pretty funny. <hes> but I have felt you know other entities here across the way at the what is it the bath house or the I'm here. I don't even know what these things are called. <hes> I think it was like the clubhouse clubhouse or the Pool House. They call it so I felt a twelve thirteen year old boy in there was just like a paper boy back in the twenties at a cigarette behind his ear. The mob did run this place for a period of time and I feel like he was the errand earned boy and so I was kind of feeling him out a little bit and then inside <hes> right before I walked up the stairs there was a woman that stopped me and was like don't go up here. He's up here and I'm like well. I'm GonNa Gull Anyway Anyway. So I you know and I told her Mike. It's okay like I I know how to talk to him and try to calmer down a little bit violet because I know that harder presents pretty strongly felt here. I'm not sure if it was her at the name I go from her was blanche or or blank or something with a b. l. but she didn't she was kind of freaked out and anxious a whisker. It's can be really nervous too right so is trying to calm her down and then after calm now and she didn't really want to talk yeah so he should take some of that who drunk spirit. I know it just take the new shine in jail pass on the four. You'll be girl yeah and then there's certain places where in the seller I think there's a vortex in there and I think it's brand new like I think somebody went in there and did something so. I'm going to have to investigate that a little bit more because that I feel like that was just a recent thing that happened so I'm going to have to try to close that before. Anything else comes through <hes> and then and let's see what else did I feel. I mean there's spots in the house where I was just feeling like really heavy of the chest and really dizzy Oh and the the top floor where the suppose a man was thrown out the window. I saw that whole scene Ernie Ernie writer ernest row for Ralph from right sorry. I don't think he cares what the fuck do whatever remember when my name in life let alone the afterlife I could feel three men that were in the room with him and they were telling me because it was mob related so they're like you know shut up. Don't talk about this and I saw them. beat the crap out of throwing them out the window and I think he was dead before he came out the window so I saw that whole scene so yeah that's the part was psychic work. That's like okay legit separate urban legend Miss Miss with what actually happened that could lead me into the booed ventures you you know Zach Pagans you know the back ends and you I we have to talk about this because you discuss this in our last interview that I couldn't find but you worked on clearing his haunted museum. You came across a lot of interesting dead people there. There was a lot of spirit had not crossed the light the you know I helped crossing the lie <hes> but once it was clear he keeps adding stuff so adding things it just brings new energy in there and because he's got some negative stuff attached to him. They're telling him hey bring those lying whole bring those laying home and then because he's influenced by that he's causing fear and other people and of course they live on their negatives live on fear so yes they're like hey. This is the best guy to be around because he's GonNa keep bringing fear into this one area where people are paying to be afraid and it's just a cycle. That's never gonNA stop until like I think I'm going to have Margaret Clear him at some point in time because needs to put up a really good point because you mentioned that he had not one not too but he had four residences that he collected while being on the show right Yep from going to these places and not protecting himself because once you open yourself up to it and Eh Okay Daemon. I want you to attack a hey guess what they're gonNA frigging attack you and they're going to attached to you and go okay dum dum yeah. Let's do this party time. Now I WANNA bring all my friends with me too and so everywhere he goes. It's it's just collecting more stuff collecting more because he keeps opening himself up to it and you brought up a good point in lake within the like this the last seasons of the show you can notice like how is is always dark. Get Dr Peter Europe there darker skin <music> gets orange or get pinger has like a p. a. that hold flake. I Dunno like his like lipstick or maybe his powder cuts in the middle of take and it's like wait. I need to be like fixed probably does he's a drunk. I can see him do easy diva. You came across a very famous infamous entity at his museum. You came came across Charles Manson and you WanNa talk about that yeah well. He's in non in a good place and then of course because Zach now has his ashes grew charge per you were you so because he has his ashes and some other items of his were at the last moments of his life and with the other items that he already had attached to Charles Manson and now which I'm pretty upset about I know he's had it for awhile is the wedding wedding dress of Sharon tate. I am so disgusted that he would have two of those things in the same place considering but his demons are telling him to do that to do that so love people responsibly. It's an different room celebrity in the same ground doc. It's like it's just disrespectful. I totally disrespectful but <hes> yeah so he is not in the light. Obviously is very scared of judgement which you know <hes> find signed whatever I won't he's living in his own personal hell right now any kind of needs to go through that for a while good though learn from that and he needs to see all the pain he's caused and he does it and he's afraid so no it's not and there's so many other things with that too that I I've been coming across and I don't want to. There's some secrets that I feel like are going to be opened up here pretty soon about that whole case so I I really do believe that <hes> someone ordered him to kill her. Oh my God yeah and I I know who that is. Oh my God. I don't want to say anything in time something you saw definitely yeah. It's it's really bad. We had a listener. Ask Us. What did you collect that David Omen towels late? What did you see with your mind's eye? Well surprisingly enough. I mean there really wasn't any negative energy there. I I reloaded negative. Energy Baggins said there was an idiot. He's got demons. I don't know I did not feel anything. Negative there. There was definitely some strong energy there. I definitely energy from the land because there's a whole bunch of crazy stuff going on with the land but I didn't feel any you know the murder things that happen that whole situation. I didn't feel that <hes> it's just I really feel it's a land energy that is so strong yeah and it just makes people either sake or dizzy or you know I'll make it can be overwhelming a little bit. You don't know how to handle that type of energy but it's it's strong. There's but I I didn't feel anything negative per se but I don't know if anybody else did when center I felt all those things the house next door yet some negative stuff in it but not the Omen I don. I didn't feel that was the positive space in my next door was just who I walked in there. I five minutes. I'm like baby out. Get me out like I just felt so head downstairs and yet it and it's so funny that you mentioned downstairs because when I was sitting by the fireplace on the first level it just felt like. Likes it like arms or hands like dragging me down like they wanted me to come down there with you. <hes> of the <hes> the investigators that were like I really want to go down there might no you don't know no you don't know Nope Nope Nope nope though I had had palpitations going out and a lot of people did it was fun. Now we had an interesting discussion in Bryce wants me to bring this up heaven and how we talked about a real quick. We have five more minutes. Walk us through your belief in heaven and how so there's no such places Hell Hell is where we are here on this earth. This is our learning ground. <hes> heaven is more of a teaching plays where it's really our souls are meant to grow and you start off as a kindergartner you know in being a soul and then every life that you have your growing and you're learning to be that spiritual Russell. Being you know ultimately some people WANNA get to ascended master status and some people they don't and they wanNA graduate high school. They're fine with that so it just depends on where you are spiritually growing <hes> but there's a there's no why would God create someone just to send them the hell that doesn't make any sense and I've asked how many people and my own research and my own meditations and they're like yeah. There's no such thing hell is what you make of Earth. This is the toughest office learning ground there is so and we're just like living the lives you know as ourself from past lives because we're here trying to learn something that we didn't learn in another yeah so so definitely there is Karma involved so the people old keep showing up in your life pay attention to that because that might be someone that you had a pass life with that. Karma needs to be balanced so that person won't go away until you figure that out so yeah so that person that keeps showing up that you don't WanNa see anymore. There's a reason for that so try to figure out what that comment. Even if it's just you know forgiving them or accepting their forgive or whatever it is. It's you know we need to work out our Karma so we can move on right as spiritual beings correct. I need to work on a lot of things cutting my cheese pizza intake. We're here. We're here to learn. You're not only do healing within like human beings this. y'All do animal healing you I do I do animal healings and communication and I absolutely love it because I mean they're just the purest little amazing creatures I mean all animals are they're just they're so blunt about everything and they're not GonNA light it. They don't lie to you about anything and I just love working with them. I mean they're just little blessings and they make me so happy loved. You get a lot of individuals. I bring you animals like I adopted her him woman. I just wanted to where he came from. Yes I actually I actually do get people that either they find animals or they get them from a shelter and they wanNA know like what they're back. Story was because as human beings we want to know the story. We want to know where you came from and what happened to you you know but in some cases it's like it's better not to know because I don't want them to put that negative like Oh. You poor saying Oh you had this is like 'cause they live in the present. They want to be happy now. You don't want to think about the stuff that happened and some of them they unfortunately if they were severely abused like that they have to work on but for the most part a lot of clients want to know where they came from the other stories of the they can have a story amazing reading of my of my mea. I was like nobody no because it's so true I just felt needed to be my life as you all of our animals really I believe that I believe one hundred percent definitely come into our lives. Furry dogs journey right there are little guardian angels while thank you so much Dixie for sitting with me and when I'm keeping this I on this recorder and everything's great everything. I'm checking it man making sure that it's still recording also where can people find you so you can go on my website W._w._w.. You died Dixie Tanto Cardini DOT COM <hes> I can spell the last name T. A. N. T. A. R. D.. I N. I.. So I'm on facebook I'm on instagram. Check my website out. If you have any questions for me an email you can find it on my website so yeah. That's pretty much where you can find me. Thank you so much. I can't wait tonight. I can't wait for your workshop. I know it's GonNa come up right now. Secrets set Dixie Cantini came across that night a David Omens House in regards to the Sharon Tate and Charles Manson case is quite astounding and it's definitely something that might come up or might not who knows but it's definitely something very interesting but a secret is a secret and I promised wouldn't tell so now we make our way to another O._C.. Coast and legends member Larry and our interview was quite interesting gene since we touched on the subject of the Latino community in the paranormal so let's talk with Larry Larry Zamora and I do utility a little but attack and I believe junior investigator and I've been with the group for at least three years for years. Also I remember Req- from David Owens House. I have captured a photo of you with an ORB on your shoulder. Yeah I have to show it <hes> so what dri to the paranormal and what got you investigating in and why well what Jimmy to the paranormal first of all it's actually and like the Latino community taxi something most of us believe in but at one point or another. I was actually very scared me for a while <hes> because it was just something I didn't understand I actually come from a scientific background so for me. <hes> although there was no proof just idea that there is something out there that doesn't have any proof and we still believe in it <hes> for some reason we just terrifying <hes> so what actually did was <hes> at one point. I believe it was a couple years ago. I decided anything that scares me. I'M GONNA go ahead and essentially face my fears. So one point I was scared <hes> Heights so actually did at some work as a Roofer so that the care of that <hes> and then I guess the paranormal was the next one so I decided <hes> Hey I'm gonna go ahead and join a group. I mean ultimately I do WanNa believe in it. I I WANNA WANNA have that open mind so if I get to go ahead and notice anything perfect if not there's no issue with that so I <hes> reached out the Chris. <hes> I went ahead. They did the interview process and everything and <hes> actually on the big first night I found out that although we are in San Juan Capistrano nobody at that time in the group next able to still nobody actually can speak in Spanish now so the first investigation I did. That's where I found out. Hey <hes> like a pretty pretty useful for it. So I started asking I do questions in Spanish every now and then I do a couple of other languages <hes> but stick mostly to Spanish and <hes> as far as I know from what I've actually heard there are I haven't heard any actually any actual response back just yet but from the areas we're bringing in southern California more than sure. We're going to get something nice. That's a goal but that being said ultimately <hes> three years I've noticed a couple of things that are out of the ordinary but nothing with conclusive evidence essentially tell me about your first paranormal experience or did. Did you have one actually my first paranormal experience or I believe it's paranormal was the very first investigation I did with the O._C.. Ghost and legends and we were out in San Juan Capistrano and <hes> we had actually just finished investigation and after that investigation <hes> we were essentially putting Oliver equipment away and at that point <hes>. I heard someone say many so I got like hey you. Did anybody call me and everybody's like no called so I I talked it up. I'm like okay probably probably something along those lines but <hes> I WANNA get Outta here because I want to get out of here and catch an episode of friends but Yeah Oh wow that's pretty that's pretty intense. I noticed that poster on the outside where we guys in investigating in San Juan Capistrano in San Juan Capistrano. We were actually investigating off of Los Rio Street really what what a story on on that street will actually. It's the oldest street in California that still i. I didn't know that that's amazing. Yes so the that's definitely one of our. I guess you could say our our home grounds. Wow what are the tales from that location tales from that location <hes> they vary anything from the lady and white which is everywhere but also <hes> there a couple of other stories along those lines most of them have to do with the railroad because at that point when it was initially actually put in that spot it was there was a lot of lash back because they essentially put it in front of People's houses and said you can't do anything about it so <hes> but there is there are a couple of stories based off of that and <hes> actually we've done <hes> we're still experimenting with it but we do believe that if for example a train does pass by that gives or stirs up energy to go ahead and <hes> <hes> maybe 'cause something to go ahead and try to communicate and we've actually we've gotten some results based off that amazing yeah. That's what I'm Anthony was mentioning to your investigation since Antwon that they were very successful. Oh yes I you mentioned like the Latin community in the paranormal. <hes> I WANNA really touch on that subject with you. Because I mean that is a good thing to bring up especially here in California with Hispanic Population <hes> what was your point of view on like the Latin community and the paranormal actually I mean usually we do go ahead and I believe very much with any society. It's it's not I don't understand it so I'm scared of it <hes> but at the same time there's also an understanding that <hes> for example when I started with those ghosts and legends it was actually we started talking about residual and then intelligence <hes> <hes> intelligent haunting and one of the couple of things regarding an intelligent haunting is essentially saying goodbye to a loved one and <hes> at that point I had remembered my mother had told me a story of the yeah when you were still still we're when you were still essentially and my belly your grandfather had passed away your grandfather. My father had passed away and I had the windows closed and I was close to some blinds in the blinds just went like as if somebody passed by them and <hes> at that point that eventually they shortly after she found out that he had passed away so <hes> she she obviously she told me that without any without any of that fear obviously we do have that fear based off of some of the folklore such as my. You're not let things like that so I mean at the same time. It's just most of the stories are I've seen something in Iran away. Yeah that sounds right or I've seen something in my mom told me to say like the eight hail. Marys that is my mom. Is Your meal thumbing his looks crystal. You GotTa say trade now Mary's at the same time. It's just something that we don't understand so. I believe that that that doesn't impact that alone right. What do you plan on collecting tonight's investigation well tonight's investigation although we are going to be collecting is actually more for any guests investigators we you wanna go ahead and help them at more or less? We want them to have the experts. That's amazing. Although we're definitely keeping out for things it's definitely for our guests as a paranormal investigator. What are your <hes> tools of choice? What this your what are your paranormal investigation tools of choice? My Okay my very first tool I believe in I believe most of us believe in is our intuition our intuition. There's that feeling where you feel <hes> something happening in raises the hairs on your back or raises the hair on the back of your neck and you feel hey. Something's not right here or something different year actually here here. I did have an experience where <hes> I had gone up to the third floor and the here my am. The back of my neck just stood up. Is that the Jasmine Room <music>. I'm actually really excited to set foot in that room. Definitely I mean the experience I had as I got up. There was in the middle of the day the hair in the back of my next stood up and I just <hes>. I guess it was a primal thing where you're you're just you're fighter. Flight came in wow so <hes> for me. It's always fight and not flight <hes> so for me. Let's go but ultimately there wasn't anything in there I walked in I checked and after that the feeling one away and then we had guests that night and I believe it was in that area that we had a guest draw <hes> I guess it was the easiest way I could say was <hes> female figure figure with a whole bunch of hair standing up and <hes> with a black background and it was definitely menacing so I was okay. I'm rethinking going up there now. Now I WANNA go. I mean definitely you should go ahead. Try Out. I mean ultimately everybody's expenses their own and that's definitely something that we like to go ahead and say at the beginning of every investigation. I mean feel free to go ahead and tell us hey this is what I feel because you might actually go ahead and be explained something. That's something else assist feeling and actually validating them so I mean what experiences their own. Everybody's built a different way. I mean some people are able to pick up on certain things while others people aren't so <hes> we never go ahead and say hey no. That's alone right. That's definitely something that can happen. That's true <hes> any last words or words of advice for individuals kind of venturing into the paranormal or wanting to investigate it <hes> definitely go ahead. I know most of them <hes> do here all of their recordings but <hes> definitely interesting to hear your recording several times because at the first time you may not go ahead and catch something and then second or third time or just having somebody else listen to it at that point here like I miss this so not only that but <hes> definite the if you wanna go ahead and investigate it make sure that you're prepared for everything in anything I agree. We thank you so much Larry. I wish you happy goes hunting. The Jasmine Room of the manor is one of the most highly active rooms I I I thought it was the violet room but jasmine from what I I was told definitely takes the cake. Legend has it that it's inhabited by the spirit of a gentleman by the name of Ralph Ralph was a groundskeeper that worked on the property back in the twenties there two stories the first one one was that he was a little rough with the girls and they didn't take too kindly to it so they complained to the mob and the mob handled him second story was he was in love with one of the prostitutes and the mob members found out and they took care of it the only way they knew how by beating him up to death throwing his body out of the third floor window where was soon ran over by car and then his remains were thrown into the woods where they are consumed by bears but it is legend and however route definitely makes himself very known and Chris August. WHO'S THE LEAD Director of O._C.? Costa Legends has had a very very personal experience with Ralph in that room and you can actually find that video on their Youtube Channel O._C.. Jose goes a legends on Youtube but later that night Ralph definitely made his presence known to one of our investigative members in our group will listen to her story later but we make our way to another investigator by the name of Anthony Me and Anthony is one Helluva guy and here's our interview with Anthony. I'm Anthony Holter. I am Ben With O._C.. Gross allegience for a year and I'm an investigator in Tech Guy. How long have you been investigating the paranormal in general since I was seventeen years old oh my gosh how that like <hes> withdrew E._t.? Paranormal and what was your first paranormal experience so kind of goes hand in hand with drew me and my first experience really goes hand in hand together. I'm from Minnesota and my sister-in-law owned property called The mail would stone barn which if you're familiar with the Mayo Clinic at all your hospital the mayor would brothers lived on that property opportunity and there's that theory that limestone attracts energy will the whole property was lying limestone but mailer brothers had killed themselves on their property. They committed suicide. My Gosh isn't love silly little places so they how you see three. Are you buildings here. Brackenfield there's little houses on the mail and properties huge and my sister-in-law was going through time at that time and just kind of just bad energy all around so I decided to step in and helped my brother who take care of my nieces and nephews and that same night I just had this feeling that I had to look out the window behind me and I saw this full black figure clears. I'm seeing you're walking guy and I'm like there shouldn't be anyone walking around thirty in morning. Now it's proper use locked off you know there isn't anyone on there be call the please because he knows family owned by my sister-in-law and her parents right. We don't want any strangers on the property at all and as a SEC okay and I turned to look back you know in the couch just Kinda really confused and turn around again and it was gone disappeared like that. I was like no human can walk that fast right and I didn't really know what it was a hand seen any of these shows then and and then the second thing that really terrified me on loss because then understand it was this black mashes coming through into the house in going up the stairs. Remember Nephews Risley. No No. I'm a protective Uncle Saris the first thing I did. I bolted up the stairs my brothers sleeping next to my nephews man like Brain Nubian in call him brothers name. He's <hes> he's like what what what's going on is it. What do you mean what's going on? I was like some something up here with the someone's up here. What are you talking about? I'm like I saw this big. Black mass like go into this room where God and he was kind of like laughed at me. Where are you laughing? It's not it's like I'm scared to death right and so he comes down and he pats the couch next music. Come sit down. It was like okay he's like you just had a paranormal experience what does that he is really been into two years. Well Heathen investigated the property later <hes> <hes> we came up with all kinds of evidence turns out on that property <hes> that he had acquired and he told me about it and I was super fascinated. It just caught me right there and I was like now that I understand that and I was just like okay cool you know my research research on the computer and just started from there and did solo investigating for a long time Iran my own team back in Minnesota <hes> so it was crazy to be able to my big thing is educating. I like educating everybody the paranormal and letting them know other ten. It's not going to be something bad the theory. Is You know if you're miserable life. You're probably going to be missed because of course so that's really how I got into started in writing experience really locked me and then I wanted to figure out and find the truth. Can you agree with me that the Midwest is more haunted and any other place in the blades something of with them for our mid Westerners. 'cause I mean I go story that I've heard from stranger. People let you know just I just had this conversation like yourself about the normal. It's like well. There's this place in you know Illinois or you know Indiana you know Bryce can vouch for Ohio as well well. I mean yeah I mean it's a very common thing and I didn't realize how come here until I started going to research myself. I figure out all these locations right and it's funny because a lot of them in the mid West cemeteries old cemeteries just being there for a long time some of them being desecrated or bulldozed Marais parking lots or whatever so yeah the Midwest says a chock full of history there that though I like a lot so is this your first time at Brechin fern because I know Oh. This is your second time because I know <hes> they you guys are the reason why ghost adventures pretty much investigated here. That's very true they had asked permission from us. Nice investigate the location. That's the story goes from Chris. He's mets acts Nice Guy. I haven't had the pleasure meeting him yet. I hope to one day I I help locations as well so sometimes I kinda run into locations. They have investigated yeah. Just Kinda got a coordinate. Everything one team has like solely in you know singlehandedly yeah like like investigated a property. I didn't know like I guess it's just like you know. It's courtesy to ask teen courtesy calling on this thing to do okay we. We are team. We try to be the best team that we can be <hes> we take a lot of pride in being intimate with our guests giving them that one on one counter as you know from the House and being with us there. That's that's what our joy is that interaction with the gas and I'm actually really excited because Chris is leading me lead my first group that is exciting. I remember when I had been asked to at the Harris House. I'm like what it's it's an exciting and like you know like Oh my God flattering you know experience you have a hierarchy and so we have love requirements hours that we had to meet before we get promoted of course and that's fair. You know I'm totally down with it but your little short staffed this time. I was supposed to be paired up with the GAL who couldn't be here. Unfortunately who's been here a few times before more than my have so Alabi like my support guide basically helped me out Chris. Do you still want to do for groups or do you want to do three. We'll do a forward and talking to Andrew who did logistics. You know they're having me lead a group tonight so I'm really excited. That's amazing congratulations. No matter the hierarchy or sonority were always there helping each other. I noticed goodbye from your group like you guys are really great and you're so welcoming met met other groups that you know there are really great and others that were just very intimidating and very closed off and I didn't have a good experience with them but you guys really take the time and like you literally like hold people by the hand and guide them through this whole process process and I appreciate that that's amazing is socially for me. I've always been that socially awkward person. I was also really shy and you know now. Being part of the team has really made me come out on Michelle. We saw great never expect from you. I'm proud of myself like to be able to do that and how this experience opens up more doors and opportunity is really get out there and just try. It's not a matter of succeeding in their failures. Try Try it. Try It. You see how you do what is your advice for people that <hes> WANNA get into the paranormal or even start their own paranormal investigation team. Those are good question. <hes> just just I'm going to go with Nike slogan. Say just do it. You Know GonNa take a lot of the research. You'RE GONNA have to research especially if you want to a team. That was the hardest thing for me trying to get back in Minnesota. Thankfully all my coworkers were really into the paranormal. So my team was right there. They work and I worked there <hes> but you know my biggest thing that I try to tell people is respect. The spirits respect the entity. That's my biggest pieces of ice. Anyone you know it's I. Hey these people try to provoke and deal and then of course they're gonNA cause problems for them. You know whereas if you're being nice or you ask a question and they acknowledge it say thank you thank you for being here. Thank you for acknowledging and making the sound or or something you know just be respectful. There's no on off switch so they're gonNA come out whenever they want to and we've had bland investigations were these come out and that's fine in their territory. So you know just like whoa that's true now. You're right absolutely so tell me about this group that you're leading. Is it on a certain level or you're doing just a second third rotation of a certain facility here it's going to be we hit <hes> there's three buildings on the property where she other its way dot says the Pool House right okay so that's why I love brackets going. There's a lot of righty here along with all the holidays history and stories and just the era of times. Just it's really cool <hes> so we have a whole schedule of rotations stations rotations will be thirty forty five minutes long depending <hes> sober all in four groups <hes> we'll just lead rotate every time someone says you know all these places it'll be up and down all around the Tudor House over here all here in Bragman firm and some of the rooms to be put in <hes> are there. Are you know your room may be subject to investigation like are you okay with that especially here. In the Bracken for coming out is that the are really the great story. I loved put that on the website on your website 'cause <hes> this is so cool about this investigations that you get to spend the night here and I love how you guys rated like the activity like highly active or if you want a good night's sleep you could sleep in and like the firm room or something coming here last year for my first year. I got you spend the night here in sleep in two other rooms which one where they so jasmine issue I read about the Ivy Room a bra raw. Ivy Is my favorite because it's a little boy. That's there and we brought Toya's he likes toys and we set him up. You know a certain way we woke up the next morning and they were all changed. It was so cool and I was like thanks Ryan. That's alleged name that we figured out now thanks Brian we appreciate you messing with the tires and playing with them like enjoyed them and believe in there for the day or whatever <hes> Jasmine is the most notorious room. Oh the manner <hes> where you know this was the whole prohibition period right <hes> so you have the mob coming in and some not less so nice things happen to gentlemen name Ralph. He got tossed out of the window the Jasmine Rim dixie. He's telling me over multiple times for good measure so we've done a variety of experiments in that room. <hes> I happen to be caught. It was kind of wrong place wrong time caught with our investigator Mike in Program last year sort of the crosshairs a lot of energy. It was going on in that room really really crazy so brachman good or it's just like it was just off for me. Everything I've experienced is pretty neutral. Okay so it's not which way but I'm also like autumn all land half the time the healthy skeptic that's trained disparate. Everything's paranormal exact most likely someone's phone ooh. Maybe it's just the piece of equipment giving off too much enough and then that's why I'm experiencing. Some crazy has lake from the last group. Did everyone come out with an inexperienced or story pretty much everyone. Oh I'm excited to hear why really excited that you're here is a lot of our guests are return guests. I met a few of them from David Towels and they remembered me and I was so happy to meet them again. There are such great people good energy. Good good folks that energy kind of determines night to yes gene. You're really excited in your the activity. It won't be disappointed has not let me down as far as hasn't let anyone else down. I've had some crazy experiences here. That's just give me we'll give all of us your that one experience that just like it repeats over and over like a residual haunting in your mind much Oh man so last year here I was a solitary attendant then because we are awesome solitary thing kind of like are fun perk comes so we escorted guest down here location and they're they're in the dark completely with the radio themselves. That's right you guys. You're going to do that dry it tonight and tonight's actually different redoing it with blindfolds based on what a lot of our listeners has seen on the ghost adventures show is there Damon is there Earth <unk> a negative presence or energy in the basement know their ego guys. No I and that's where I did my solitary wearing a score my guess was in that same location reject said that you know there is kind of negative entity. There is nothing there now for the show <hes> likely probably I get a discrediting anything but you know it's just doesn't match up sometimes so yeah now now what is oops. There's a car that very sneaky car. That looks like it's not even put together right. <hes> what is the most active room is at the Jasmine or is just the jasmine not the basement okay every location and building on the property have their different spots right early active so the Tudor House has been the stage. You can imagine back then there's a lot of performances dining dining area restaurant right so there's so much energy and a lot of people there <hes> the bath house <hes> just the downstairs bath house. I haven't really been up there in the upstairs area on rotation which I get to tonight so it's really cool. <hes> just downstairs ensues Amino hearing things here noises very common thing like that's the most common thing you'd probably get here is hearing voices or you get tapped touch as far as the manner. It's definitely the jasmine room that's kind of the the gold nugget if you spending the night there Nolan is wow for the investigative spot in it's also one of the solitary locations for tonight on my guy after tonight we will have to not jasmine room. <hes> I was supposed to buy for personal reasons I had to leave early in the morning right so andrew will be staying overnight and Jasmine. He has a had an experience in there. Yet is kind of phone that you know that goes back to on off switch again some of us. Do we all do during an investigation. How some kind of experience in the magazine Oh it's like okay thirty had their fun with us taking us alone? There like you guys took a lot of energy all of us yeah well. That excites me. I can't wait to even venture through the room. Just let you know my co-host prices waiting comfortably in a car in front of in-n-out Burger in L._A.. Eh You wanted to show up but no honestly he had a a lot of work to do <hes> with a show that he's in so he is here technically in spirit. No Pun intended spirit so <hes> I I wanted to ask one last question. What is your devices have choice? When you go into an investigation I've asked all the other investigators like what are their three top devices of choice so of course because of you the same as allow some <hes>? The digital recorder is the number one thing that you can bring that you're almost guaranteed some kind of evidence at almost every location. I've been to on team on my own team Minnesota. I've had some. Some audio come through and that's the gold there and just audio evidences amazing laughter children voices <hes> my second device that I like is what Mike has has is the portable device so playing the word bank backwards in Latin and saw a spirit comes theory. It's GonNa say an English so you can understand it. <hes> we've had a lot of success with advice. Actually I've seen that device is really it's really yeah. It's it's like probably my top favorite piece cool yeah every time. It looks really serious every time with Mike you know let's let's do the portal and then thirdly something that I brought onto this investigation that no one else has at the moment a compass interesting this explain why <hes> so I gather from a gentleman named Harry price he is a very well-known investigator <hes> back in the fifties nineteen fifties eighteen hundreds that kind of thing so there wasn't all that technology back then so what are you going to us right actually goes you know and compass you won't get interfered with by the electromagnetic field mhm and it's so light that's true simple. You don't have to worry about having its batteries drain exactly it's so late and simple so you know it won't be a lot of energy trade spin around yes so don't use the compass on your phone. He's an actual one. Guys can get two bucks five. That's true yeah so I really excited introduce that to my group. They're probably going to learning something to that's a really I mean. You're the first one to mention that probably going to get a kick out of it because as you know we have considerably Retro old-fashioned Yeah. We'll like a pendulum. Just kick it old school with your pendulum and in Corpus now like you could I mean do you Ashley. Whatever's in you know presences in the space with you a hey? Can you turn the dial left you you turn clockwise. Is that how you get to manipulate it. SMART will allow my guess to how the opportunity to hold the compass so they can see like eyesight you know and just watch it and see if it goes out of control. MHM really excited to see if I get hits on that yeah so my gosh. I'm sure I feel I feel like we're going to have a lot of great stories. Yeah it's going to be great. I one hundred percent agree. We'll thank you so much anthony thank you for. We're having Hollywood paranormal here allowing you to talk to you guys. I love like and I mean that from the bottom of my heart like love what you guys do your education everything. It's amazing. I'm very very I'm a big fan of you guys. I think that heavier thank you respect. An education seems to be the fame with O._C.. Ghosts and legends and that's something that I really admire about this group. That's always there whenever the investigate in the location such as Bracken fern manner his level of respect for each other and a level of respect for those that we can't see but the biggest question that I had to ask all the members of the O._C.. Ghosts and legends crew was this and it was something that I did see on the bag. Show is really a demon in the basement because that's what I noticed on episode three and season twelve of ghost adventures according to Zach Baggins or the BAGGINS. There's supposedly a bad presence a demon in the basement. The left scratches on certain individuals and according to O._C.. Goes Selections Pancer is no. There's nothing nothing mayor that's negative but there is something that makes his presence known as we make our way to the Tudor House we are prepared with an orientation by Chris August to give us a good background in history on Bradford manner along along with a great grounding ceremony that was given by Dixie Tanto Dini because protection is key as we learned earlier in this episode and then I made my way to a gentleman by the name of Roger Another member of the Oh Seco so much unscrew and here is his interview names Roger Woodcock and how long have you been with O._C.. Golsen legend over four years for years and I and tell me what got us the paranormal and then what got you into being a paranormal investigator. My mother was a sensitive she was on American Indian descent and and very much naturalist spiritual person and voice had my own beliefs systems and I've had a lot of personal experiences on my own before I joined the team. I'm I'm also. Will we call it believer skeptic. I don't believe everything's a ghost I believe sometimes life you generate what you WANNA believe and may not be factual may not be what actually happens on one of my job with the team is to debunk as much as I possibly can. I'll spend hours trying to disprove something. There's lots of things again disprove but about personal experiences and all these experiences their own so you don't want to take that away from them but if I can explain that weird sound you heard I'm GonNa give you these what I think it is. This is what I think it could have been. Take with you want with that so this team is very open. We try just about anything out there science. It's wise not science wise. I mean we've had I've had something like this is really kind of stupid from technical perspective and then had my eyes opened up by something tap and I give you experience such as we have seen call a boo bear <music> and people that are in the paranormal world what boo bear is it's basically a rimbaud inside of a Teddy Bear essentially and we're here last year with it and I had a group I was with I was just going to tag along with the group and they're up there where the cycle before the matter of the blueberries and free placed there and they go. It's moving and I'm like I'm like five yards away from whatever yes sure it is very very skeptical about it and I'm I walk up to it and that son of a what looks like Sony's is actually slowly squeezing it kind of bins over just just enough that that it's visually detective kind of bends over and stands about kind of like somebody's squeeze in the middle in the middle of breathing GonNa Freak me out because I hear I am. There's four or five. I people who are also seeing Emeka was one of the team members well. They're all sing. It and I'm saying okay now that that kind of freaked me a little bit was like what's making this person's. NEKO's this bitch open and see what the Hell's making it move because why Nielsen Nelson and then it repeated later on it wasn't as one event so things like that you think you get your free notions of what's real and what's not real and then the under is open by a group group experience right. You can't just discount like I think I was seeing things every Saad so those valuable that's short of getting it on video with two different video cameras Jhansi. That's probably the most valuable thing in the paranormal evidence is when you have a group that all one pair of is accreditation all walks of life so that's that's next to the holy. Grail is two different video cameras catching something. That's a holy grail that second told you were you part part of the group when they first investigated Breckenridge. Tell me about that experience <hes> the first inaugural back in front we come up. You're not knowing more than just the history on it on the fun part was as I actually came up here with my girlfriend at the time I'm a couple of weeks prior incognito because at that the owners there was really pushing the paranormal and we WANNA make sure they're not just pushing the paranormal actually something so we actually Congo and had some very powerful experiences. I was up most back with things being thrown. It sounded like a wooden shoe being thrown against the bedroom wall on the hallway. We were another couple checked in shortly after we did and we were still allowed him and they did so we thought they were doing something you know whatever and the matter at that time was kind of weird because nobody from the staff's neither man. I left a ten so we didn't know that either until the next morning so we were up a lot of the night with things not actually I actually brought him E._D._p.. Oh I'm sorry this recording with me and had a recording so we got all that on track but we can written office something going on so we go to check out in the morning and we decided we're we're going to say anything to the staff because we want to tip our hand about lesbian. It's been caramel team is how is your night. We're was good. If I'm issues. I didn't appear in the morning couple checked out shortly after they checked in because they're scared so we're actually in the manner by ourselves the whole night not knowing that allow and later on after talking to some of the staff and the property manager at the time building of the time right across rooms where one of the legends about person who doesn't like people in throws shoes the sound like somebody storing. Somebody hit the wall and fall at the wall in Paul right very very very you know like okay. That's a weird coincidence that that was what we thought we heard and we just thought maybe they're having a bad night or something and turns out really the only ones in the armed building and we had that sound so that was very eye opening for when we come back and that's we had a lot of mix energies and this is nothing dangerous or ugly but just all sudden very powerful energy and that's what we I experience here. I investigation here. Some very eye-opening experiences below the team members. Do you think it has something to do with the land or just the energy of the building or just what people brought into that investigation. I I think generally speaking not just led to this building. I think it's all the above I think I think jogger fee has something to do with us to sort of energy lines laylines. That's one of the theories out there. I think the history people people always saying oh something with the building well. This was also native American plan for a long time. We don't know what power that has. I find that areas that are known to be properties or land that was in had inherited are in habit by why do people seem to have a lot of energy my we just because that's what I want being native American background but always seemed like every place I've we've done. That's partly San. Juan blacks are canyons regular ones lots of powerful experiences Sir lots of mid American background of course because of American you know heritage a lot of it is spirituality like they were big spiritualists. They paid homage to God's and stuff well. There's no doubt in their mind and their believes there's there's no like Oh. That's you know pseudoscience with. That's that's what they believe so. There's no question their mind. It's just a matter of life for that <hes> so I always find that and this has this property has some native American background the land before it was developed was was tribal <hes> and then obviously all the energy back with d how these buildings being utilized why they were built on. We also have a natural underground spring run so here. That's why this was a speak easier at the Tudor House because part of the part of the moon shining is water supply while you know your law enforcement look look for pipes and they knew that was a moonshine operation no pipes here. Here's your not bring water. There's there's some theories about water bringing energy so there's a lot of possibilities focus into one area here tom now you've been investing for four years with Zico some legends as a whole. How long have you been investigating in general? I wasn't an investigator as far as with other teams I was a hobbyist had an interest in it. I had some on belief system. I actually got thrusted in dozy Gel purely by coincidence on they came to my my my second job so to speak my job is technical director for Community Theater in San Juan Capistrano and they had booked an event there and the owner and I was like I was only with six months whatever at the time and said Hey can just be there that nine support and whatever they need you know they're doing all the presentation lights Augusta and that's how I got involved with Posey. Jail was kind of interesting. I like what they're saying as far as being opened a lot of different things and months later two months later on the team race just like that just a little window of opportunity. They're doing went along with the team. I go most somebody whose background I rarely I come to these events but most I'm on the guy behind the camera doing that. GonNa Stop It. Just that's my my niche now. You talked about photography. <hes> have you caught any any credible evidence. Insist on photograph were on digital photograph on photos with as a team before a few things I think are most impactful photograph is probably here not a photograph actually a nighttime infrared video allow here <hes> the manner of a light anomaly anomaly now people see the the balls and all that stuff you know ninety nine point nine percent of time that's dust particles and it's very easily but we had add one particle that was tracking <hes> not like the other particles you could see there was not for dust particle show up on the camera. It's right in front of the land. You might look like it's it's actually writing from the lens this when you could see interact Iraq out there with objects go behind object to come back around and it was tracking you frame Hafren and I did all my usual Iran different color filters against it. I tried all the time trying to debunk what was could not come up with solution. I zoomed it in a digitally enhanced Hanson still run it in an almost like a donut a circle hormone love it and it was just very powerful Evans now. I'm we're never going to say it's a ghost. We don't know what if the says it was ought so let's team number says that's it goes because we don't know these ghosts. We don't know what this is. That's why the stool pseudoscience. That's why we we still just put it on the paranormal because we don't know what this right so. We just call goes because that's what we can grasp so what is was. I have no idea but I could not be bunket. I seen that video. It's on your Youtube Channel. Those goes and legend Youtube guys if you go on O._C.. Goes and legend. You'll see their videos. I think it's something like <hes> I think it was like Ralph's room or something or done hall sandwich. It's very very very interesting. There's an I created video. I want to show people what tools we used to debunk this what we did so that again holy grails two different cameras didn't get that when we had one camera running there but I wanNA show people steps we took to try to debunk it and good. That's amazing. I saw video and I'm going to have to find a guys to put it on our instagram program but it's so interesting like you can't explain it at all. It's like it's it. You could tell like that's not dust doesn't globally Brighton and focus pinpointed as Riyadh. Wow do you have okay how about this. <hes> what are your pieces of advice for any individuals hobbyists or future ghost hunters like what is your advice for them. Coming into this field be open minded be guarded the people. There's a lot of people out there that <hes> think everything's a ghost and that's kind of for me. That's the other side of the specter. Not Everything's goes be careful of psychics. We dixies great Mosa also her stuff I I I I can grab onto but we've had other psychics pass that you can tell within thirty seconds of this so getting you gotta be careful that stuff and then just be open minded to <hes> the technology beginning and we don't know what we're looking for here. This is all speculation on what this could be. Your couldn't be so even though even though it might seem really far fetched that you know this is happening are weak. You know the spirits able to manifest a word at an espionage Lebanon Spirit box and say we answer ask a question. We don't know what this very intelligence behind. We'd over just random energy. We don't know of it's you know get Ueli really out there you know parallel universes and all we just don't know so will be open minded to it intelligent about it and take a step back at the emotions out of it and try not to experience to debunk or not to debunk that is the question whether it does not learn mind to suffer the slings Banaras of our misinterpretations on what is dust in what is actually an orb or maybe if you blink a little bit you might just see bigfoot and background. I mean it is part of being a paranormal investigator investigator. You have to step into a logical standpoint and you have to take deeper dives. Not Everything is panned out to be a ghost. Now we move forward with the grounding ceremony and this is where I find it very very interesting important for ghost investigations especially for green investigators that just wander into a location without really protecting and grounding themselves because when you walk into the unknown you have to let whatever's out there known but you need business but at the same time you're protected now. Here's a crowning ceremony that is given by dixie Tanto Cardini before we split off into our groups and I was very fortunate fortunate be placed in her group with the lead investigator and Director of O._C.. Go some legends Chris August so here's Dixie Tanto Dini leading us into a grounding ceremony and for all you future in Green Ghost hunters out there. I really take notes because this is a very important ceremony to take whenever you set foot into the unknown. Everybody and you can participate if you don't want to. You don't have have to just ignore me as you don't want to ground. That's totally fine so this is going to help. You feel more secure more safe. Okay so what we're going to do. We're just gonNA take a really good deep breath that AL relax ourselves one more deep bread now what we're going to do as we're going to imagine a route. That's coming from your tailbone says their base route Shaqra so you're you're going to imagine a route. That's going down deep into the earth and then it's branching out and clasping onto mother earth. Some people might feel some vibrations coming from this. It's just mother earth supporting you nurturing you and keeping you save and then we're also going to do next is from the souls of your feet. You're going to imagine these routes and they're going to be going down even to the earth and grounding you and nurturing you and keeping your safe Apprai- all right take another deep breath and you're grounded so at any point in time. If anybody wants to do this you can. I I do it every single morning just to help me stay focused and calm so you can do at any point in time in any of you. It was a dark in stormy night. Seriously it was Tarkhan stormy night. When we left the Tudor House in meter way to the manner with Chris August and Dixie pandered or Dini and our group the fog was really thick so thick that you couldn't even see the road ahead of you but you can still make the road out due to the light of the moon? It was a full moon out we made our way across the street's the manner at night to little intimidating we make our way to the first floor as we started our first session with around of questions we heard a couple of Knox in the kitchen and finally made our way up the back staircase to the second level which was quite interesting according to Dixie when she did a walk-through of the manner one of the presences that made themselves known to her was an older woman that was telling telling her not to go up the stairs. Don't go upstairs why because he's there and we believe that he was Ralph and Ralph was ready for us. We made our way through the second floor. Where we felt some activity? We had the RIM pod setup along with the cameras and our boo bear. We finally make our way to third floor straight to the jasmine room already. I could feel my heart palpitation eating. I feel the sense of anxiety maybe it's because I already know what to expect in the jasmine room but I had this feeling that something was there and it didn't want us there. Soon we will realize lies that Ralph was going to make himself known to one of the members of our group and here's a recording of that session now keep in mind that the noisy you'll hear in the background is a spirit box that Chris August is using to delete an investigation in this room for some of you out there that don't know what a spirit boxes is. A tool that goes hunters use an attempt to make communication with paranormal entities it eases radiofrequency sweeps to generate white noise his which theory suggests give some entities the energy they need to be heard and when this occurs you'll hear something like voices or sounds coming through the static in an attempt to communicate. I we don't collect anything. We do here something in the background but we can't make it out but then it's followed by Knox and I think I collected something of an e._d._p.. During the session listen closely it sounds like someone saying take a baby baby step but then it's followed with an eerie presence that makes a self known to one of our guest members selene <hes> keeping the widow was a wasn't you guys moving. No it was a Bayard to ninety five in the window visits me again. What's your problem? Did you ever problem with me. You actually need me. Walk out of this place before your problem with this being here you'll get to someone just laugh cohasset your it and I think the where next to love to ray here can't be kency aware what did you see the of crystal city yes scrabble valet show. Who is that you feel an adult a child? You give me problems being here. What's your problem? I WanNa know what your promise. If you want to leave this room let us know do something because statement pal. She wants it here coming here. Were combing. We're going. Here's the audio again. Guys I could be wrong could be someone in the group but I don't remember anyone whispering. During this time here it is again. Could this be Ralph warning us to take baby steps absurd to tread lightly when we're in his room who knows but he definitely made his presence known to Selene. We make our way down to the second floor and then finally we get to the seller now. That's where things really picked up for us. It was pretty active. I've a recording of what happened. After we heard what we thought was buber in the room. We heard what sounded like the BOO bear going off or laughing and there was no one around round with the BOOB air. The buber was currently in the second floor and Chris August had notified Andrew to see if the buber was on nothing and then it happened. I saw my first apparition and I had someone sitting behind me validate. I don't know what it was but I was feeling so drained from being in the jasmine room that I felt like I was Kinda. Falling Asleep you see the seller is pretty dark and cold and I think <hes> for me. The energy was all sucked worked out and maybe whatever was trying to make its presence. No was trying to tell me to wake up and it surely woke me up. It just looked like a white cream like figure that just came around from the bannister and almost gone in my face ace. I can make out a knows a pair of is and as I jumped the gentleman behind me validated that he saw the same thing the thing with the seller is something very interesting. That's the entrance to the Prohibition Tunnels Awards I ask years. Yes very in the world two years. What did he knows? It happened just before that employs are just so it's as inserting something energizing so I don't know as pure coincidence moving energy so late with the wire incidence moving is the car the energy making you talk now as it was. Is it not the heart the braves you energy to do. The are cassie cars more cars session. Fortunately one of the members of the group had the recorder going on and picked up on the laughter which is something that we reviewed as you listen into the audio we could hear clear day what sounded like the boo bear going off almost like if it was laughing then you hear Chris August meeker really really good statement a hypothesis and this is their theory. Whenever there's a moving car that drives past the manner? It seems like it just ignites whatever energies are their energy feeds off of energy and nowadays a lot of these cars are electronic cars so every time time a car passes by the manner. It seems like some sort of activity is heightened by that car passing by the manners right next to a busy street so there's always a constant movement of traffic not only that but there's also the water theory how water is a source of energy for entities to feed off of and there is a spring that runs beneath bracket fern which could be the reason why mm-hmm there's huntings after successful session in the seller we headed towards the Tudor House for a thirty minute coffee break. It was much needed since it was a very very cold night. It was thirty eight degrees in Lake Arrowhead and it was still storming and foggy. I was able to sit down with one of the members of our group and constant O._C.. Ghosts and legends patron Selene and her family and we had a really interesting discussion it turns <music> out that selene and her family attracts a lot of entities and here's our interview with Selene okay guys so I'm sitting here with a family actually so I have <hes> monthly as elite Francisco and this is is your son over here so Terry and this is your sister. Oh so this is really cool that you guys participate pay in a paranormal ghost as a family started. You got them started <hes>. How long have you been participating with O._C.? Golsen legends we met them in what we met them twenty sixteen but we started last year here here at the Brechin firm. Oh Wow now. Did you experience a lot more than what you just experience now. No this is this is definitely in the most now I met you at David Omen Taus and and you felt a lot of things over there that it seems like it's like continuing over here. Are you very sensitive to the paranormal or had I mean have you seen apparitions or things is growing up I did when I was little back in Mexico. I swear I saw Ramona. Oh my God can you tell us about that. <hes> sure <hes> we were at the ranch with my aunt and she was getting water water from the well and <hes> I wondered off you know I think I was like four or five years old. I wondered off to were there used to be river going by so it was a river riverbank and as I was standing there I saw shadow big shadow like walking by and those little shadows behind it. Oh my God so <hes> when I saw it they were like floating like a doc along the river and when I saw them they like stopped and it's like they turn to look at me and I felt like they were calling me to to go with them. Yeah and I couldn't move. I was frozen fear and my aunt kept calling me. Let's go it's time to go and I was like Oh my God completely though so scared and she did she grabbed me you know by arm to get over here she. Somatic meals like hoping she didn't see anything but you did yeah she. She didn't see it but in that same ranch my grandma got slapped by a woman that came out of the uh-huh stole back then because she was crying and she source wow that's an intense earn all story <hes>. Can you walk us through what you experience. You had a very intense. It's experience in the jasmine room in I mean even you recounting the story. I mean I can hear your voice trembling. Can you Okkas what you experience yeah. I feel a little more asleep. So when we we were there I couldn't sit at the bed or just felt like it needed to sit in the floor and I did when I sat there. <hes> I felt like a Mike something next to me like <hes> presence and I feeling to see if it was my son that was there because he was a one closest. He was very far like not even with my arm stinted I could feel him so then all all of a sudden I turn and there's like a man shadow looking right at me like just tracy me scared me so I turned around and then I wanna see it but I could feel it in a could look at it from my <hes> corner is that it was it was still there to stay there looking at you mentioned that it was a sense of of intimidation or you just is looking at me like curious or wanting to go out or but he was holding his ground. How did you feel in that room? Feel like tense but <hes> morning that but have you ever felt like that anywhere else in like your past tours last time we on the Olma House I saw kind of like a phase late flashlight my her as they really relate really fast ball we are in the hallway we going into hallway a turnaround and so that Mike and Disappeared light in the link you had an intense experience there too but not at the Omen House to house next door rate. I initially felt something in the living area of the allman woman houses we were there and I just felt like I have to get out. I I couldn't breathe. We will there. <hes> I think Chris was filling it to is your son going into solitary. Sorry Guys Oh my God so to the Beth you guys have heard before that the are doing rounds of solitary confinement in highly active rooms and yours is one of them will my name up pick offers. It's time that we thought here the first time came here less last year and then this time he got picked. My name got picked again so I I gave it to him. Wins it ends. I just want to get you alone now. Yeah I'm building up to it. We got ruined the feeling the mice you could Masan he wants to go. We got like an ally. Yeah you can pick you know now now. Is your son also sensitive. Does he have the seem three boys when he was a little all of them. They have although speeds when they were little but then when he he was never been afraid since he was little he would always being the dark by himself and not afraid but then he kind of stopped seeing stuff like around six. I think clever six years old an offer forget yeah. Oh my goodness so he's been wanting to have another experience and this is why is he wanted to experiment here. Do you guys have fun on a you know taking these towards throw seacoast and legends always come out wanting to do more with them definitely more we the first time we came here if you didn't know we were saying the haunted hotel he said. When do we get to go to our hotel? How we're here? He was like what did you didn't tell me make well. That's the only way to get you hear. What rooms are? You guys staying in the hotel. What are their stories day see Dalia? <hes> are those highly highly active ones. They're highly active but they're in the second floor where there's a lot of activity <hes> the first time voice eight who was in the what is it the Ivy Room Yeah. We're there's been I guess <hes> something has happened with the little boy name Ryan. Yes and we couldn't sleep their first night no way or are you feeling you're just feeling anxiety or just just sense serve like where the heads could swear that the walls were were vibrating. Oh my gosh yeah so I I do few stuff. You know I've always felt stuff. I can always tell when there's something there like when we moved to a new house Zeno I could feel there's energy and so far we've been something here and I just discussion with Larry earlier about paranormal and the Latino community in in your opinion I mean how those two worlds meet like. I noted <hes> that they more we all Latinos we have more of the spins in Mexico everybody you know but here in America they're like they don't believe it you know. Do you feel that the Hispanic Latino communities are open to the paranormal. That's why you guys experienced so much because there's more more more like stories and legends stuff. That's happened over there and a lot of people go by you know they swear by and they believe in it and I think that's why there's there's more you know there's dwindles switches.

Thank you so much for participating in my view and happy goes hunting. It's like when we get awesome sleep. I'm sure you will thank you guys. According to Selene son he went to solitary confinement inside the pole house and came out with nothing he said it was actually pretty quiet as for the other gentlemen that went into solitary confinement in the jasmine room he told all of us afterwards that he couldn't even make a pass the front door it was as though someone or something telling him that he wasn't welcome there and his gut was telling him that it wasn't safe to go in that room at that time now for the best part. We ended up staying in the Tudor House to continue our investigation before entering the basement. I felt that this was the most active part of our investigation besides the Jasmine and also the seller here's where we picked up an M._v._p.. Of A woman laughing in the background of our session you'll hear Chris August talk however in the session we used another device. I was actually really excited. We're using the PO box which which was created by Mr Huff like the call him. It's advice that enhances M._V._p.. On a scale previously unheard of and the Portal Cleans Enhances isolates and in my opinion encourages e._d._p.. In comparison with the spirit box you see the spirit box has that choppy white noise sound that you normally here but with the portable box it eliminates it by running it through the portal and it just leaves the voices themselves so you just get the voices and not the static and it's the only way to get clear good voice box session and we definitely heard something that was not coming from that Puerto box but outside of it and we couldn't explain it here. It is surname we don't see. Can you show yourself around here. MM-HMM UH-HUH <MUSIC> <music> uh-huh yes I just heard takes just being moved else. What's your name correct? UH The comedy. If you guys are here Tuck turn now here's laughing again and when we're time for good measure both Chris and I heard it clear day. It was a woman in the background laughing. We believe that the laughter was coming from the restroom area but that part of the Tudor House that night was highly highly active. I was even seeing shadow figures on stage and according to Dixie they were there kind of mocking us so a ghost of the Tudor House in Bradford reconfirmed manner have personalities. I guess you can say we continued art. Investigation down in the basement in the basement was actually really creepy. You can actually see the actual prohibition bottles that the US back in that era to move the hooch and just F._y._i.. Wii Guys Know Demon. We didn't see or feel or get any scratches to my knowledge down in the basement. The basement was definitely definitely creepy. I must say but we made our way from the basement to the Pool House and that's where we made what we thought we made communication with the twelve year old boy or the newsy boy that mia been working for the mob back in the day it was a great way to end our investigation that pole house and then we made our way back to the Tudor House did you accu- A to share experiences in a lot of people had a lot of experiences wrapped everything up around to fifteen and then I finally got a chance to sit with Chris August for our postmortem this mortem so here's our interview with Chris August all right guy so we're doing a postmortem with Chris. August who is the head Honcho of O._C.. Goes and legends and it's about two thirty just wrapped up with our final notes in what we all discovered at Bracken fern compared to your first night here late was a very active night <hes> or winning your most never disappoints whenever leave here disappointed. It's never happened some. I mean we were always leaving here with stuff happening but it was it was I would have trying to. I can't really rate it. There was experiences everywhere and even though certain group may not have had the same experiences as another group there were experiences different places none the less and some were somewhere so we're never let down simply true Anthony One of your investigators mentioned that someone always walks out of reconfirmed with the experience agreeance I for myself say that one hundred percent <hes> so what did you feel tonight appeared to other nights. It sounds like for me tonight. I was heavy on disembodied body voices being in the seller. The laughter of with Abu Bear was not in the here in the Tudor House. I I was so excited and maybe not everybody agrees with me but we caught it and you've you caught it on audio and I hope you don't lose that. No I emailed to ice. Did you really are we yeah Clinton. Every I WANNA like enhance this out and everything is this could buy. Yes I mean that was I was pumped for that. I'm seriously exciting you. I don't know you heard my excitement. More excited that we caught it I was there. Are those moments where I know what I heard confident about it. I'm not convinced that came from the portal night. I I mean again. I'm going to analyze it and it's like you're going to dissect it as well. I'm not convinced that came from the portal. I heard it from the opposite side of the room over here on this wall but that's just my opinion <hes> it's okay not everybody has to agree with me and and I'm GonNa take it for what it was. I heard it. It was a child in man I I'm. I'm still kind of high about that. I it's not often that stuff happens in when you hear it in real time and then it translates on the audio that's best case scenario right. We got it and I mean that was something that you can someone try to debunk or now like because we had other people that hurt it do and I mean that's another form of allegation and we're going to be able to once. We dissect it. Sometimes things sound a lot better in the moment and then you listen back when you're kind of more. You're just you're relaxed. You're you've reflected on the night a week later right two weeks later you reflecting you're like well. You know what <hes> maybe that's not or your you validate like Yep I stand by. That's I note that no question about it and I'm hoping that sit. That's GonNa be my reaction when I listened to it. I like to sit on it. Saw All saul still be on a high for me when I get home be pumped about all this new it over and over and and just get really excited again. Relive the moment and then I'll let it sit for weeks. Talk to me about the Jasmine Room. A lot of people had a lot of interesting feels and experiences in that room and I know that you had a very intense experience your first time right. Oh yeah it was it was a pretty I don't Wanna I mean it sounds dramatic by saying it was life altering because but when I say altering meeting it was in my career in this field it was something that really confused me and at the moment it was so foreign of an experienced that I didn't didn't know what to do with it and walking into that room and having just that feeling of anxiety and I needed to get out I've never walked out of an investigation and I haven't since there are things that startled me but I've never left and in video which we have on you to you can view it. Anybody can look at it where we have the actual d._v._R.. Footage of I'm put my foot down. I'm going upstairs and saying hey you can't mess my friends. I was really confident and I didn't feel threatened. I'm like this is silly. Come on see this. Whatever happened made another investigator cry? I as a friend said this is awful. I mean you can't do that. If there was a spare you you're not allowed to do that. So come on you got some say you come through me. Yeah I bolted title. Find that video guys and put it on Instagram I mean but you had a gentleman here who was picked for the solitaire in that room and he couldn't even sit in that room. He had to stand out by the door. Yeah sorry to back was hurting yeah. The <music> are solitary guy he he didn't even walk in the door and that's never I mean we don't really get generally. We have a lot of women can pick up on whatever's going on in Jasmine but this guy was he. I guess he was told to respect that. I'm not wanted to hear right and they whoever was in there. We can call them Ralph but said look POW. You're not coming in here and that's the way it's going to be wow and this guy said I respected and I did not. I didn't walk through that threshold. I did not cross that barrier. Is that the theme of tonight you think was respect. I I can't I. I didn't necessarily experienced anything profound in jasmine tonight but other people did doesn't mean because I didn't experience. It doesn't mean it didn't happen. So what what I think the theme was this at intimidation intimidation. Was the theme Jasmine tonight like they're being not not prevent what I'm looking for now. They were being stared down by bullying. It's you know sense of yeah of superiority like we run this house. We run this. You're going to have to like a by by our roles kind of thing. Your just you know one of our guests had the feeling that they were being something was sitting next to them and disturb him. Yes filiing heard. Her interview reported good. She told that okay I mean you could hear it in her voice when she I was explaining it in that room to us like she had a hard time like communicating what she saw it was very intense like she sat on the bed next to me and then she had to sit down on the floor and boom it happened yeah absolutely and and in the theme with her somebody else that's spoke about it that it was like something was kind of you know sitting right next to him and kind of like what their head tilted. What are you going to do their like looking right? Act You right and do I scare you know it was it was kind of looks there right into your eyes and I'm just going to do I do. I intimidate you so that seemed to be a theme yeah in Jasmine tonight whoever's up there be at Ralph. Be It something else that we cannot identify something's going on in that room and there'd be people who will go and sleep in that room and they're totally fine like I had the great asleep ever understand understand than people who don't know about its activity. We have no knowledge of the manner being haunted just normal people who go and granted the manners not books anymore as individual rooms. I used to be now. It's entirely different book out the whole place but when it was an individual a place where you can rent individual rooms plenty of people did not know about it and people have notified management's to sit there. I don't like that room. I don't know what was it wasn't a matter of the quality of the hotel it was I just didn't like that room and they would leave in the middle of the night now leaving the midnight so insane absolutely oh my God so the legend of Ralph lives on lives on that is something that you can say is like is credible. Is that legend right there and that's assuming it's Ralph Mogollon with Ralph because we don't until we have a better way of identifying who or what it is is what it is I mean we if we could properly identify whoever's in there we would love to write what is the next O._C.. Ghost and legends next lockdown down when is going to happen man. We got some exciting things coming. We will be back at the Omen House. We're coming back for two dates. In July people spoke and they loved did wonderful of course we had a great time so we're looking forward to heading back over there and having another powwow at the moment house and see what else we get. We're hoping if everything goes as we want ought to this year we're going to have another new venue announcement. That top secret top secret right now actually most of over doing is undercover top secret. We can't disclose because we're also when we're out there were investigating instigating in hopes of finding an ideal gem location that we can bring people to and the Bracken verners one of them. We had to keep that under wraps for a little bit and four years later it's our biggest smash venue and people keep coming back and whether they experienced anything or not. There's something about the place that people connect with yes. They don't even have to have anything profound happen to them on a paranormal level. There's just a connection about like there's something about this place and they just love the whole experience that they four years later. It's almost like a family reunion. It is true true and her family back for the second time so that's pretty amazing collecting new memories so do you as a closer. Do you think you had a very successful night. Then I think we did and again I think everyone came out of here. Having experienced something or they learn something right and or even just appreciating the history of the place and we're GONNA keep coming back here as long as you're welcome back here and as long as we office kind to us and you buy as rules you'll be fine. Perhaps some of the ladies of the manner were making their presence known tonight and yeah it was a successful night it was everyone seemed happy and but very sleepy heads tonight everyone rate for all Karol then no pun intended bad fun Chris Style well. Thank you so much Chris for everything in having Hollywood paranormal you're at Brechin fern man or this was an amazing night. Thank you for coming no problem. I can't wait to put this episode together. Excited thank you so we all had a very successful investigation and locked down at the Bracken fern manner we collected that'd a lot of wonderful V._p.'s. We felt a lot of things that we couldn't explain and saw things that we couldn't explain but we all had that validation. We all witnessed it and I highly think that there's something something there at Brock confirmed manner and definitely makes his presence known and it's not just brackenfield manner. It's like Arrowhead the environment the water the Earth the energy everything it is definitely only a unique place rich mysticism mystery. I ended up having to spend the night at Bradford manner because the storm and the fog was so bad. I couldn't see the road ahead of me. There's eighteen miles of mountain road before you hit the interstate to go back to L._A.. And there is no way that I was able to make that commute so fortunately behead an empty room available and thankfully it wasn't the jasmine room it was the fern room or the honeymoon aiming sweet and actually had a good night's rest. Maybe it's because I ground in myself and told whatever was around me to let me sleep and if they understood to please make a tap on window and door sure enough are heard light little tap on the door and I had a good night's rest. We wanted to take the time to say thank you to everyone that's part of O._C.. Ghost and legends especially Chris August.

This is a twenty four karat solid gold skull with rubies and diamonds for is and inside opens up into basis little world inside stars in the world. He lives in a very modest suburb. There's nothing fancy about it. It is not anybody's dream of where the elite athlete lives in splendor. or something. You know he just lives in a totally modest cookie cutter suburban tract home. This is a given to for christmas. One year by ex girlfriend gave me this. Little mouse peterson thing. Dean was writing about jeb. At a stage in an athlete's career when we often stopped paying attention to them jeb is one of the original madman of base jumping and he has managed to miraculously survive multiple crash landings in sport. That rarely gives anyone a second chance. Outside is published a number of stories about him over the years and he's been the focus of a string of documentaries and television specials but now he's forty four and no longer chasing the edge of risk instead. Jeb cordless has embarked on a different kind of journey. One that has i'm trying to understand. How his obsession a sport. That should have killed him. Instead ended up saving his life. Jeb had come to a moment in his life where he was actually taking a really good hard look at the path e followed and asking hard and interesting questions about that path. You know jeb. has this wonderfully clear. Unsparing way of looking at his own life and talking about his own life. He's not into sugar coating anything. He has this sort of determination to see to see himself with clarity and sort of the fascinating quality in a person who is simultaneously driven by such seemingly chaotic. And you're tional energies. So he has this kind of crystal clear intelligence looking at this complex and and seemingly tormented and difficult psyche dane made multiple trips to speak with jeb. In addition to all their time looking at skulls spend hours driving around southern california out to restaurants and also to skydive paris a facility below the san bernardino mountains that has been jabs favorite drop zone for decades. This is what i've seen with jumping through my twenty plus years. The ones who've never been hurt our most likely the ones they're going to die because what happens is the getting injured is what it really teaches. You and and these these kinds of ideas of like. Oh you know if. I follow these rules. Everything will be okay whenever you hear. Someone say that. They're they're in a delusional state. It doesn't work like that. You can do everything right and still die. That's not just for base jumping. That's walking out your front goddamn door. I'm sorry. I don't care how careful you are care how perfect everything is once you understand. What brain aneurysm is. You'll realize that you can die at any moment at any time period. It's at any second right. I and each time you do something. That's that's increases risk that adds risk to your life. You are increasing the chances of that happening to you. Period now and base jumping is literal apex of adding risks. Here you're literally adding so much risked your life that t to pretend that. Oh i have this. Under control is lunacy. That's just not accurate. You're being honest with yourself or anyone else and get this. No one believes you yeah. He's a good athlete and very fit and strong guy and the trains like hell and he's got great balance all his cool stuff but what makes him. A great athlete is not that he has the fastest fast which muscle or the strongest fingers. Or the whatever it is of anyone in the world would make him a great. Athlete is what happens in his mind and his relationship between desire. Fear panic all of these things right. He so he has always away. Ben an an emotional and psychological athlete then. Of course there's the the sailing had fact about jeb corliss which is really not true of a lot of elite athletes of any kind is that he is one hell of storyteller jabs just straight physical adventure narratives about his experiences. Doing this are totally gripping and astonishing right. The horrific accidents that he survived. But it's the emotional honesty that makes it compelling and in a way i feel like that's what a good story about based kind of has to be because in some way that's the question that's pressing on the mind of everybody who watches this stuff is. Who would do that and why to answer that question. You have to start with jabs childhood. Jeb was born in northern new mexico and his family lived a kind of vagabond. Lifestyle is father was an art dealer and after his mother sold her health food store for around fifty thousand dollars. His parents use the money to fund an extended international adventure idea of how crazy my parents were. That's all they had. They have a house never car in anything and he took out the decided to take their three children to afghanistan pakistan and india to buy art. Bring back to the states to sell. I gotta get over. I'm not gonna make it. I am going to make jabs. Father used a lot of drugs for a lot of years. And i heard a lot of pain in the way jed talked about that and i heard a lot of frustration from jeb over. Oh i don't know you know it it. It just has to have been hard for a kid to watch dad disappear into altered states in the late nineteen eighties gems family relocated to palm springs and not long after his parents split up. Jeb was sixteen and struggling with suicidal thoughts. Then he saw a documentary about base jumping on where i was sixteen would really depressing but base jumping. Kinda save me at an s. Sixteen year old depressed teenager. Who's going through emotional problems you know. The thought process of of that person is no at least me was quite twisted. And when i saw base jumping it would seem very perfect to me. Because i thought well you know. That's a perfect activity for me. If i succeed. Like if i jump and i survive then i've done something very few other. Human beings in the world are willing to do on. If i don't succeed and somehow it goes wrong. And i ended up dying while i get released my suffering on this planet so either way i get what i want. It was a win win situation. Jim was too young to actually start base. Jumping which at. That point was a fledgling sport but he never let go of the idea and when he turned eighteen. His grandparents paid for skydiving lessons. Three years and one hundred fifty skydive jumps later. He purchased a base jumping parachute and drove to a bridge in the sierra nevada. Foothills for his first attempt. It did not go well. Our first base jump was auburn bridge in northern california and i jumped in pitch black moon conditions. I couldn't see anything i put down. Three glow sticks on land area and the landing area at auburn is like this dirt road with like these. Little jagged rocks achieved greater. And if you go down on it just blazer flesh. And i overshot my glow sticks in couldn't see the ground because it was pitch black and flared to highest all my canopy and slid across this cheese grater ground shredding both my knees all the skin off my pumps i still have scars on my poems for shredding so deep and all my elbows i lost. It's gonna knees elbows in poems from sliding across this ground. And when i went back to my room i remember packing my parachute bleeding. My parachute blinds turn red. There's blood on the ground somehow on the ceiling. I don't know how that happened but my room looks like a mass murderer. It happened in there. And then i went jumped it again that same night after about twenty more successful jumps jeb. Down another bridge. He liked and he had his next accident and as bridges actually pretty high. It's like four hundred twenty but you can't use all the altitude because it goes into a ravine with big dead trees so you land on this little road and the road has cliff on one side and a power line on the other. The second time. I jumped it. I got a forty five off heading and i almost hit the power line. I grabbed rear riser. And as i grabbed the rise of the canopus stalled out to slam the asphalt and it might toes touch my ankle folded now and then had say the next one was me hitting how falls where i jumped at three-under for waterfall. South africa had not heading opening got sucked into the waterfall. Smashed the waterfall breaking my back in three places all of my ribs. Left-foot right knee cracked my solar plexus over. This thing is stirring up storm sternum. I why it crashed and broke all the ribs on my right hand side and i was eating live by animals for three hours. Away to rescue rescue took about nine hours. I seem to recall that. These are the animals in question. Were crabs freshwater crabs. Live no arctic when i hit the cliff and it's sliced but open like flayed me open and they were attracted the blood and we're eating the opened. Wow so what does that feel like to lie there and feel an open mundi. The helplessness like being helpless and not being able to move and having really small creatures. Chew on you is unpleasant. I would say if you can avoid that. Do good for that at all costs. Jeb was in excruciating pain. Mind there at the base of the and yet as he told daniel doing after the first responders finally got to him. He refused to take any pain medication. The paramedics got to me told him. I didn't want morphine. And they looked at me like i was a complete lunatic. And they're like Well your back is probably broken. Hip slipped broke in your legs. Look broken everything looks broken. And we're going to have to carry you out of here probably bounce off every rock long way and it's probably take six hours so you need pain medication. I want to give us good reason. Otherwise we're giving to and it's like well you know. I know it hurts right. Now when i go to the doctor and we'll tell him what hurts you. Give me that shit. I'm not gonna what's going on. He refuses all pain medication. Even when he's had horrifying injuries during really gruesome surgeries. And all that. I found that pretty hard to believe the first time i heard it. You know it almost sounded like pose or something. But i spent a fair. Amount of time with javanese told me a lot of stories and he returned to that theme over and over again and i came to recognize that it is intensely emotionally important to him. It's not just important that people understand or believe it about him but it is kind of vital to his sense of self. His understanding of life. this commitment to not using pain medication he will say we were given these senses in order to experience life to experience reality and all of its intensity clarity. And he doesn't want to hide from that he wants to have the full experience of life. It seemed to me that to jab that his father's drug use had come to be. You know perhaps self-medication for suffering you know for his dad's own suffering but also a way of sort of hiding from life and hiding from the pain of life and i couldn't help but wonder if jabs aversion to pain meds and even his embrace of extreme risk. Were not at least to some degree. Motivated by or shaped by that experience jabbing continued to advance his skills taking trips around the world to exceptional jump spots. Like angel falls in venezuela. He also took up other sports like climbing and surfer and scuba diving and it all began to draw out of his depression and isolation what i really liked about. All of these things is they would force me to get off the couch and do something. Like i couldn't just lock myself in a room to get these things done. I'd have to actually live. And i think that that's what's really interesting is that fourth these things motivating me to get out in the world and do things force me to live my life and by living my life i started finding purpose and he also began to find a community for the first time in his life in the late nineteen ninety s. Jim bought a came quarter and started videoing his jumps with friends including one from the top of the stratosphere hotel in las vegas retrain professionals maury in the beginning. I didn't like people very much. So i tried to avoid them. But over time. I started really enjoying the people i started enjoying the experiences and the almost brotherhood that you get with these groups of people because it it created very strong bonds. Because you're doing such dangerous things. That everybody in reliant upon each other and you know if somebody gets hurt you know. They're going to be the one who helps you. So you create these very tight. Knit on friendships. And and that became a big part of the joy but base jumping was not only about joy. This is a sport that kills people of the time. Something that jeb who get very used i seen so many people die that it's absolutely unbelievable. And then this sounds like your new judge but it really is and eighty percent of the people that i jumped with are dead or or series entered. Ken jumping one of the two as the sport progressed. It only got more dangerous especially with the introduction of wings which allowed base jumpers to soar through the air for long distances. If you've seen videos of wing suiting then you know that it looks like the ultimate threat like being superman. This creates some problems. Of course humans being what we are as soon as base jumpers figured out how to fly these wing suits started to become appealing to be like. Wow you know. let's have some fun. Let's fly really close to things. One of the sort of psychological problems of it is that everyone does it. Says it's phenomenally fun and that it doesn't actually feel dangerous in other words. You feel like you have great control. And they just people who do it describe it as absolutely the feeling of human flight just a thrill beyond all thrills and jeb will even say that like straight base jumping just jumping off something and then pulling the cord is terrifying proximity flying what. I have really heard from people who do it a lot. Is that the whole problem with that. It's not scared you jump off and as soon as that wing suit fills up and you get control of it and you start to bank along next things. This beautiful serene feeling of flight and control comes over you. And you're like you like finally are a bird but another sort of psychological problem with is that you know if you think about like in climbing for example the way to sort of push yourself in climbing is to ever harder klein's well how do you push yourself in proximity fine if the game is if you get a rush by getting kind of close to something do you. Then get a bigger rush by getting even closer to get a rea- rush by getting closer still well. That only ends one way that game that eventually you touch the thing and then when you touch it you've crossed the line into death in two thousand and three. Jeb witnessed his friend wayne weston crossed that line right in front of him and a base jumping festival at the royal gorge bridge in canyon city colorado during australian jumper. Who when i got into jumping. He was kind of the apex of the sport. Okay he was considered the greatest base jumper to have ever lived at that time wings. Were still relatively new then and jeb and wayne wanted to wow the crowd by jumping from an airplane and flying. The wing suits close to the bridge. Dwayne above the span and jeb below. It all started out just as they had planned but his jeb approached the bridge he noticed something strange and then all of a sudden coming up underneath the bridge. And as i come under the bridge. Ic- dwayne parachute point face. Which i'm like. What is he doing polling right here. Like it was a very weird place for him to be pulling his parachute and i. I couldn't understand what was happening. And i'm like chit. And i had to turn to keep hitting like. I would have gone if i stayed on my on. My trajectory ever gone right through so basically turn as i turn right just miss him then all of a sudden there's all this debris here like all this stuff and i don't know what any of it is and i remember thinking people through shows the braves ends all this stuff and then i come out of the debris field i'm like and then also like i can't think about that anymore. I'm at low altitude flying in a very narrow gorge time going shift on flying trying to get myself in a good position for deployment. I fly for quite a bit further than i deploy remember open the parachute opening and just being so excited. I kind of blocked everything that just happened out. And i'm like on allows amazing. I landed also. I look up and i see dwayne canopy hit cliff on my shit strike. Oh no you're somebody like next to me landed next to. They're like no no no jet. He had the bridges dead. I what dawson. I looked down on covered. I and i look over. I see severed leg lying on the ground. I always knew the sport was dangerous. I always knew stuff could happen. But this was so far beyond anything i could ever have imagined and it was so extreme and so violent and so just horrendous that i went into shock like instantly and all of a sudden the sensation is one of being in like a tunnel or tube where things get very quiet and n n time kind of distorts and all the sudden. You're like walking and you don't know where you're going and you don't know what you're doing and you don't know what's happening. I don't know how. I got back up to the top of the bridge. I remember that being top of the bridge. And i remember just getting on my knees. And then i'd start crying and i didn't and i never cry. I don't cry and chronic kind of person. And i just couldn't understand what was happening and i couldn't really connect the feelings that i was having near was surreal and and just so unbelievable. I couldn't believe. How did the dwayne experience affect you. You know i've had a lot of moments in my life. Were questioned what i do. And why do they experience. Would dwayne was one of those moments. That really made me question. Why do i do this. And is this worth it. And what's the point it out. It was one of those very powerful strong moments of you know. I don't know if this is worth it. And it took me months and months and months to reconcile. And i i kind of came to a realization which is okay. I can stop shopping right now. I can stop flying wing suits stop diving sharks riding motorcycles climbing cer- big surfing big waves could stop doing everything dangerous right this minute and i'm still not that's not going to prevent my death at all. I still dead. you know. it's it's just a matter of time. Really and the question is how do i wanna spend that time. What a one. What do with the big time. I have while i'm on this planet and i've come to the realization that jump ing shark diving climbing surfing big waves. These are things that enriched my life and give my life meaning and purpose and could be a happy person without and that's where the crux of all this is right. I'm wired in a weird way We'll be right back At the top of the episode we spoke about the new. Those frames tempo high performance. Sports sunglasses that deliver high quality audio without headphones. Research has shown that listening to music while exercising. Doesn't just make you training more fun. It makes you a better athlete by improving your mood. Lowering your perceived exertion level accelerating your performance. But don't just take it from scientists they could from real athletes just gives me energy. Your cadence of your run is just. I think music is meant to go with that. This jen galvan director of music for electric flight crew. A running club that synchronizes workouts in cities across the country with shared playlists. I love more upbeat kind of techno. That maybe isn't everyone's favorite but the beats permanent really counts these days agendas are running on the streets of la and oversees the creation of electric flight crews weekly playlists. Imagine why anyone would run without music. Running is really hard. And i do think music is really what can link carry you through. It's just so powerful. The bose frames tempo.

Tempo is the sound you expect from bos- with everything you need from sports sunglasses. Learn more at bose dot com after dwayne weston's death jeb continued to pursue the wildest base jumping projects. He could dream up in two thousand three alone. He circled the globe. Six times completing four hundred jumps in sixteen countries on five continents. He made a living mostly by licensing footage of his exploits for commercials and tv shows from the outside. It seemed like he was a daredevil. Who had made but the truth is that he was miserable and often terrify three to want. I very rarely go to jump. I don't have backfield. You know. I'll say this i would say ninety percent of jumps i do. I have a bad field. I don't have a positive feeling not standing at the extra-long oh this is exciting. Standing is one thing that sucks this is this makes you feel like shit in like all your adrenaline junkie. If i could jump without adrenaline i would. I don't like your at super heightened alertness. You feel like it is scary. I have been so gripped. I'm shaking like literally uncontrollably. Shaking at the excellent. I always described as a hurricane inside your head. Just every nerve ending is screaming. Don't do this. don't do this everything. There's nothing to tells me that this is the right decision. Nothing in something. I have to fight and struggle and and beat back. and that's what will appeal realized. I'm scared shitless. I'm terrified this for a long by her ballot per and really i haven't mentally. I've had him it. Throughout my and i've had to work through that mental issue and i've used these things to do and these have been the only things that have helped me do it if i die in the process of trying to work on my mind and try to fix damage. That's going to kill me anyway right. Then that's kind of in my personal opinion. An okay way to die. It's okay to die in the process of trying to save your own life. You know because without dying anyway. that's how i can justify the unjustifiable to myself. I needed this to survive without this. I was gonna put a bullet in my head. I couldn't exist without so when people are like. Oh this is like heroin your addicts is like this. This isn't heroin. this is food. this is water. this air is that i can't survive without it. That's what it was for me so jeb just kept going by the early two thousand. Ten's he become the face of base jumping drawing huge crowds for stunts. He carried out all over the world including flying through one hundred foot on in a mountain in china. Called heaven's gate for a tv audience. Estimated to be in the hundreds of millions. He was getting featured in espn in hbo documentaries. And making appearances on shows like conan o'brien in good morning america. He has done it again. That superstar daredevil jeb corliss wing suit jumping from all of this built up to jeb believing that he was ready to take wings flying to its most extreme pointy yet. Another sort of obvious end point of the wing suit. Dream is the question of is there a way to land a wing suit without pulling the parachute. Could you jump off something. Fly with enough glide ratio and control flare at the end in some way slowdown. Just land on the ground. Jab at one point was interested in exploring those limits of proximity flying by seeing if it might be possible to glide really really really close to the ground to a fixed object and even slightly touch or kiss the ground and then pull away again. Why did john flight mountain slope and then slide my feet through snow for three hundred feet. I came down to nominate fly back way in two thousand twelve. Jeb had an opportunity to do some preliminary training for this objective table mountain in cape town. South where he had just finished filming segment for real sports with bryant gumbel and what i decided was a tale mountain. They had this. Wonderful flat led to where we could put balloons right. Do more target training for precision to transition into this next project. So i have my buddy put a balloon on that ledge so he went down set up cameras set up the balloons on like six feet of strength. And just before i jump. He calls up on the walkie and his like jeb. It's kinda windy. I don't think you should go for the balloons. He's all honestly should fly over is. I don't think it's safe. And i'm dislike. Don't worry i'll see if they're moving and if they're moving ops flare is like all right so be careful. It's the problem and i'll be able to write. Which stupid three to one. What happened is hit. Put it on. On upper ledge and the wind blew it down and it connected on a ledge beneath it so they were two ledges on top of the other and as as the wind blew it to the lower ledge it hooked on a rock on a lower ledge which made it only about six inches off the ground and then because the two ledges were kind of stacked on top of each other it created an optical illusion which made me feel like i had more space than i did so i ended up impacting a flat granite ledge impact at the waist. So just below the important parts and it uploads my legs completely part. And as i impact i bounce and bounce tumble and then as i'm tumbling. Luckily i had decades of acrobatic experience. Because i was able to retain control very quickly. So i- impact bounce to a couple flip i think it's like two flips full twist and then i come out on flying again when i am packed and i knew i was dead wasn't a question. It was an uncertain survivable accident by wash. My friend wayne impact me severed in half. I had probably at that point soon. About ten people die in a similar way. And if you impacted at terminal velocity on flat solid granite dead. The thought my head was. I got kind of two choices. I know i'm dead. The question is do. I want to have a slow painful agonizing death where i open parachutes hit the ground and in bleed to death while i'm waiting for a rally rescue. The other thought was well. I could not pull and then just impact and be dead right away. Yeah you know suffering no pain just over and it was a strange thought to reconcile it now. And then all of a sudden the part of my brain that was doing calculations is people nari. That's this is right now. You pull now. And the part of my grandma actually remember consciously vagueness might well good like man but much timing that was it was like how can i get five minutes can again our wherever it is. I one whatever amount of time. I can get at this moment. That's what i so. I pitched and as i pitched. I can't at the open with line twists. I had about one and a half canopy ride or slamming into the clinton a second time which was also broken. more bones was quite violent. Then i was laying the under a canopy wearing all black on the hottest day in south africa. cape town. they've record. I think it was one hundred. Twenty two got a huge opening in my right shin. That looked like me. Literally disemboweled like muscle had been shredded and came out with almost like spaghetti. Coming out of my leg gross. I people me were to hikers. Who were walking and seen the accident. They are probably the me within ten minutes. And you're good. Thank you anything. Broken hersher joe. Corals jeb corliss swear you from jab from venice california resin more water questions thank you. At least i totally thought. I was dead all the way until i got to the hospital and then when i got to the hospital i heard doctors say oh. It's like a double amputation. And i was like. Oh jesus but it was funny. 'cause when i heard that the thought wasn't omega i'm gonna lose. My legs. Thought was human may not die because at that point i was sure i'm dead like i'm just waiting for the lights to go out. You know i'm like i'm going to die. This is just. We're just doing this for fun because there's no way you can't live through. This is impossible you know and then we said i'm a holy shit i might i might live and i was jibs. Injuries were extensive. I broke all my toes on my left foot. I blew out the. Aco rift shredded. My acl in my left knee blew a massive hole in my right shin needed four surgeries and skin grafts to close. It broke my fibula. It's ripped both of them. All must offer both my thighs offer bone on and pushed it down onto my knees as the doctors worked with jeb. In his first hours in the hospital it became clear there while he was in very rough shape he'd survive. He'd also be able to keep his legs and possibly even make close to a full recovery. Really important that day which is no matter how bad you think it is right. No matter how bad you think your life is what's happening to you. you know. you still should try now. I could have just given up and been done right then in there. And i'm really glad i gave it a shot As jeb explained it to daniel dwayne. The accident transformed his relationship to base jumping. I feel that. I finally got what i needed from it. You know i went through the exorcism and the demons were released it just all of a sudden one day. I'm like yeah. I don't have to jump i don't have to but jeb still does joe though. It's not like it used to be now. it's for fun. I never did this for fun. In the beginning in the beginning it was work. This was heavy like trauma. Like i was going through drama. Every time i did this. I was fighting the fire burning in my mind with fire. And that's what it was. I was like when you have a forest fire. You started the smaller fire to kind of block that fire. My brain was on fire. I was burning internal setting these firewalls. I tried to burn in front of it to try to like. Stop it because it was eating me alive and luckily i found something like base. Jumping was just extreme and just all intense and just took all of my mental energy to do and that hell just channel all the into this place then wasn't as negative. I really do feel like base. Jumping saved my life in so many ways. We've all heard a lot of stories like that right. That sounds almost like a cliche. When i say it now. Doesn't it right the athlete who says well you know. Yeah i was the best of world. But the hardest thing i ever did was getting over the pain of my father's disapproval child. Well as you get older you come to understand that those stories are true. Those challenges actually were the hardest thing and they actually did. Take the most courage in a way for me. The thing that jeb had done in decided to confront the pain of the life that he lived really is the great achievement. It really is the great base job. It really is the great wing suit or really. Is the one where you just finally rip off all your defenses face the pain that lives inside you. that is not easy and jeb. Actually is finding his way through that with grace and courage. And that's the most bad ass thing. There is right now no matter what happens. I'm okay. I realized that no matter what happens to me if i realized i'll be okay. I'll find ways to entertain my brain. You know if i die. i'm okay. Whatever pick a thing. I'll be fine. I'll figure it out and that's a really wonderful place to find yourself at forty three when you finally get to that spot where you know. You're okay everything's going to be just fine. No matter what you now and then you find someone you really love you get engaged and you start realizing. Wow i might actually have a kid. I love my little garden like have a garden. I grow tomatoes. And all these little vegetables. And we're trying different little peppers and stuff and i. I love planting and growing stuff. Now you know. I love my dog. I have a little dog and i like playing with my dog and going for walks and i like riding my bike on the beach now all the sudden after all these years i actually am happy.

"Good afternoon everybody. And welcome to the CELEB- news ride home for Friday March. Twenty seventh twenty twenty. I'm your host Kate wrapped. I can't believe March is already almost over. It's my fourteenth day of quarantine so I guess you know it's a big day for me. You know big day. Big Fourteen probably doing this for a lot longer. But Hey I've logged fourteen days in. That's that's great good for me. It's a windy la. It's a little chilly. But God this guys are so insanely clear like you can see the San Bernardino mountains like super super clearly. It's gorgeous. I mean I guess this is what L. A. Looks like when no one has really been driving for a few weeks? Damn it's truly stunning if you need a silver lining in all of this at least. La Looks Good La never been hotter la hotter than ever. La's Don some work done. La Got a facelift baby. Okay let's get into the topics shall we okay? Today's topic's Britney Spears. Says she's faster than you. Sane bullets. Okay Harry and Meghan Hop Donna. Jet Do lax with a dream and card again. Actually they flew private so it was probably at the Santa Monica Airport not lax. But Harry and Megan are here. They've moved to La what time to be moving Let's see actor. Mark Blum has died of complications from corona virus. Evangeline Lilly finally apologized for stupid anti-quarantine comments in finally. We've gotTA talk about. How Courtney Kardashian got better son Mason district for going on instagram lives? So she's deleted his instagram account. But that didn't stop Mason from going. Live he just went. Live on Tick Tock. So we'RE GONNA WE'RE GONNA play clips from all of his live post and we're going to play a clip of Courtney talking about the whole thing. Okay well let's just to get into it shall we? Here's what you missed today in the world of Celebrity News. Okay this is definitely my favorite story of the day. It's our second Britney Spears story of the week. Britney Spears Comrade Britney I should say is just on fire this week. She's firing on also endures. She's never been better. I Love Britney I love Comrade Brittany Anyway Comrade Brittany posted something on instagram. That caused quite a stir. Yesterday she wrote quote ran. Might I five getting over. Your fear of pushing it in. The beginning is key. Once I did that I hit five. Usually I run six or seven. My first try was nine and now did it. Whoop one hundred meter dash running EMOJI. Flower Emoji it's Emoji. Winky Emoji end quote and then she posted screen shot basically implied that she ran the one hundred meter dash in what is essentially half the time of the current world record holder. Us Sane Bolt Brittany saying. She ran it in five seconds. You Sane Bolts record is nine point five eight seconds. I mean listen. The odds are pretty high. That Britney just got her math wrong. She probably wrote the wrong type of run. Maybe she did a ten meter dash instead of a one hundred meter dash. Who knows but you know what I'm GonNa Take Britney's word for it I'm GonNa Take Comrade Brittany's word for it. She says she's the world's fastest runner and I believer. You know what I believe. Britney good for you. You're the fastest runner in the world. And I'm proud of you for that. Okay women can have it all okay. We can be pop. Stars can become Rad's but can be the fastest runners in the world. We can be Britney Spears. Okay WE STAND. We have to stand. We have no choice but to stand comrade Britney. The world's fastest runner. Oh that was sudden but I guess Harry and Meghan officially live in. La Now reports have come out today. That Harry and Meghan have officially moved to La. Apparently a royal insider spoke with the Sun and said quote. Harry and Meghan have left Canada. Now four good. The borders were closing and flights were stopping. They had to get out but this move was planned for some time. They realized Canada would not work out for various reasons and they want to be based in the Los Angeles area. They have a big support network. There it's where their new team of Hollywood agents? Npr's and business managers are based make in has lots of friends there and of course her mum Doria end quote. Wow okay this is this is sudden but I guess I get it like listen. Does Canada have way better health care than us. Yes absolutely would that not be where you WANNA be during a global pandemic a? I guess they don't really get why they'd come here but sure but listen. They're Prince Harry and Meghan Mother effing Markle. Okay it's not like they're normal people. They're not in the same world as all of us like if they get sick and hospital near them is crowded like they're they're royalty they can have a doctor come to them. You know what I'm saying. You know what I'm saying. So that's why I think they moved to La. Because I think that they'd be closer to Megan's mom and obviously they're doing all this Hollywood stuff now and even though Hollywood is fully shut down. I still could see them. Maybe you know wheel in deal and and you know getting some stuff sold or were pitched or whatever during this lockdown the also seem to be starting a new charity venture. They have hired this woman. Her name is Catherine Saint Laurent and she was the I guess the director at pivotal ventures which was Melinda Gates Says Foundation for women and families. Anyway Herron and M- Harry and Meghan have poached her. She's now working for them. Page six got a copy of Saint Laurent's email about quitting her job at Melinda Gates is company to work for Harry and Meghan. She wrote quote beginning next week. I will be acting as chief of staff and Executive Director of the new nonprofit enterprise for Megan M. and Terry they're embarking on a new chapter themselves and I'm thrilled to be able to play a supporting role in realizing their vision and enabling them to achieve impact on the issues that matter most to them and quote. Okay so we we have that to look forward to have got some charities stuff or something anyway. Megan probably also moved to La. Because she's got a big movie premiere coming up. I mean listen. All the actual movie premieres are cancelled. So it's going to be an actual physical premier. But she does have a movie coming out. Okay she did the narration for that movie. Called Elephant exclamation point. Disney nature announced the premiere of that movie yesterday via twitter writing quote Jay's knee nature's elephant and original movie narrated by Megan the Duchess of Sussex starts streaming April third only on Disney plus and quote. So I guess you know. Megan moved here so that she could get Disney plus. Maybe they don't have Disney plus in Canada. Who knows okay? One final bit of Harry and Meghan News here. Megan is allegedly considering writing and other cookbook. A source spoke with us. Weekly about this and said quote the former suits actress. Thirty eight is interested in writing another cookbook. Following Twenty eighteens together our community cookbook a source reveals exclusively in the new issue of US Weekly. In addition to this the insider revealed that Megan's looking into relaunching her former lifestyle blog the pig and potentially developing a kitchen where line aside from her solo career aspirations. Megan and her husband Prince. Harry are still invested in continuing with their philanthropic interests. Megan has heaps of projects in the works. The source says and quote. Wow Okay so this is how they're gonNA fund their new LA lifestyle. She's going to be pumping out cookbooks. Having like I don't know some kind of target kitchenware line or something maybe maybe crate and barrel maybe Williams Sonoma who knows what echelon of kitchenware line Megan markle will sell. But she's allegedly thinking of doing it if the TIG comes back. That's huge guys. The TIG was like Meghan markle's goop knock off from like way back before when she was just like kind of like a you know kind of like a sea level actress on a cable show. She had a lifestyle blog. It's been scrubbed from the Internet. It doesn't exist. They got the royals got rid of it when she became royal but hey now that she's not anymore she's getting back to what she does. Best which is lifestyle okay. This woman loves lifestyle and we love her for it and I'm thrilled thrilled. Welcome to my city. Megan markle hope to run into. I mean I'm you know I don't know what part of La they live in. But I just feel in my gut. They're living in Malibu. Just feel it in my gut and in my soul that they took that private jet from Vancouver and landed at the Santa Monica Airport and then took a big black car. All the way to Malibu you know what I'm saying. I feel like they took the SUV. Malibu it just can picture it so clearly. You know you know anyway. I guess I'll be going to the Malibu farmers market the next time I get out of quarantine to run errands just in case. I can run into them. I definitely feel like I'm not getting enough nutrients in general these days like I'm not really taking care of myself in the best way that I really should. Which is why. I'm so happy that I've been taking ritual vitamins. I really really love this company ritual.

You know the older gentleman who mentored pen Badgley and like was kind of like a like a villain character on the show. He was also in crocodile. Dundee in was in general just a well known Broadway actor well known in the theater community. New York Mark was sixty-nine years old. This is just. This is so sad. I think this might be the first like actor celebrity death that we've seen so far. His desperately seeking Susan Co Star Madonna posted a tribute to him on her instagram. She wrote quote. I want to acknowledge the passing of a remarkable human fellow actor and friend Marc Baum who succumbed to corona virus. This is really tragic and my heart goes out to him his family and his loved ones. I remember him as a funny warm loving and professional when remade desperately seeking Susan in Nineteen eighty-five another reminder that this virus is in no joke nothing to be casual about or pretend won't affect us in some way we need to stay. Grateful BE HOPEFUL. Help each other and follow quarantine rules and quote okay. So evangeline lilly is finally apologizing for her comments over a week ago where. She said that she wasn't taking the social distancing thing seriously and she was like no one's GonNa stop me from dropping my kids off at karate practice or whatever anyway she obviously was like dragged online for basically going against what the CDC was telling everybody which was stay home. Don't go outside flat and the curve etcetera etcetera it was especially like cringe because her lost Co Star. Daniel Day Kim like was diagnosed with corona virus. So like the whole thing is just it was just was not a great look for every Angeline. Lilley was not great. It was not a great anyway. She has obviously been proven wrong about her theory that we should ignore isolating ourselves and she wrote an apology on instagram. She posted a picture of her kids playing a board game and wrote quote. Hello everyone I'm writing you from my home. Where I have been social distancing since March eighteenth when social distancing was instituted in the small community where I'm currently living end quote. She basically said that she posted her original post her local government wherever she lives said that the restrictions only applied to two hundred and fifty people or more anyway. She said obviously things have changed since then and she has some egg on her face. She wrote quote. I want to offer my sincere and heartfelt apology. For the insensitivity I showed in my previous post to the very real suffering and fear that has gripped the world through covert nineteen grandparents. Parents Children Sisters and brothers are dying. The world is rallying to find a way to stop this very real threat and my ensuing. Silence has sent a dismissive arrogant and cryptic message my direct end special apologies to those most affected by this pandemic. I never meant to hurt you. When I wrote that post. Ten days ago I thought I was infusing com into the hysteria. I can see now that I was projecting my own fears into an already fearful and traumatic situation and quote. Okay evangeline and we're glad you said sorry. I just checked to see if she liked deleted the old post where she was like slamming people for isolating. She didn't delete the post but she did change the way more innocuous. She just wrote she changed. The revised competition is as follows. And I quote just dropped. My kids off at gymnastics camp. They all washed their hands before going in. They are playing and laughing. Hashtag business as usual Ya. That's a lot different from her original caption. That was like way more messed up. Alright angeline apologized there you go. Do we forgive her? I don't care whatever. Sure I forgive her. Why not only doled a grudge against Angelina Lilly? I love the online saga of Mason disick. So much it's so funny to me. I feel like the Kardashian. Pr Machine tries so hard to keep their PR. Messaging consistent like Kris. Jenner is always on the phone all day and all night making sure like they don't have any PR crises and they keep a lid on it or whatever they want to show on. The show corrects the narrative that they want to put out there. But one thing Kris Jenner didn't predict was that Courtney Cam Kylie Khloe. All of their kids are to grow up and go on social media and say kind of whatever they want to say because maybe they don't understand the concept of PR in the first place which brings us to Mason disag- he's ten years old. He's obviously discovered instagram. And so he. He did an instagram live. Where he told people that Kylie and Travis Scott aren't together they haven't gotten back together here. Is that clip from his initial instagram. Live but just keep in mind. This is just chapter one of a three part story here. Okay so here is Mason disick trimming in about Kylie's relationship on instagram live. Because obviously somebody asked him about it now clearly knocked another. Okay so funny. Anyway Courtney Kardashian deleted Mason his instagram account. He's not allowed to have an instagram account anymore. Because you broke the family rule which is don't Blab to the public about us unless we can make money off of it. I'm joking of course. Okay so she. She did her own. Instagram live Courtney. Did with her friend Sarah Howard who she does push with anyway. Here's them talking about deleting Mason's instagram accounts and what ask us and so he doesn't has a an edit computer for his school so anyways I did delete it because Scott and I just felt like he is he's ten. I think there's an age limit with instagram. I think it's thirteen percent so persistent Gerald. I'm saying but like General. I just I think on instagram. The thing that really worries me with kids just comments people can be so mean and I need it. Private eight unneeded starts it back to public without me knowing. And he I I just mason is so funny. I fully love Mason District Now. Like what a funny kid you just. He's like oh I wanNA make it on private love it. It's gone. It's deleted anyway. So she talked about deleting Mason's instagram but that didn't stop little mace from going live. Okay because there's always a little thing called tick tock anywhere have the audio from Mason's talk live that he did He talks about his tick tock account getting deleted. Because he's too young but I guess he made another one because he needs to be online. He's unstoppable and there's nothing more relatable than someone who desperately needs to go online right. Here's the audio. What happened to your chick talk? It got deleted because too young because I went viral. I would've had two point seven mill by now. I kept it up. I absolutely loved that Mason. Dusek is like fully in to being a part of the family business which is just having a lot of followers being famous. He wants to point seven mill. Okay mom good I see new on keeping up in the Kardashians. Yeah I'm on that. All heavy scene stories gently nokes. Corona God. No he can't see stormy because corona but hey this is my. This is my favorite part of the whole video right here. House cocoa good. Are you going to grow? He can't even go to Coachella because corona this is so sweet mason. Disag- is a bona fide. All Sweetie and I love that. He's addicted to going live. I mean it's great. This is the Kardashian content. I crave right now especially because the currencies and is so dark. It's dark.

The Horrible Misdeeds of Papa Pilgrim
"From the Wilderness of Kodiak Island Alaska. This is murder and mystery in the last frontier. With your host Robin Airfield in a land full of peril and vicious animals. Humans are the most dangerous predators of all Alaska. Slogan is the last frontier and to some people this means Alaska is the wild west a place with less law and order and someplace they can live as they choose the man who called Himself Papa. Pilgrim believed moving his family to the Wilderness of Alaska offered him the opportunity to do anything he wanted. Papa pilgrim was the worst kind of hypocrite because he hit his crimes behind his religious zeal like a charismatic cult leader. Pilgrim could appear charming and persuasive in public. But there was another side of Pop. A pilgrim and this was the side. His family saw all too often. Welcome to murder mystery in the last frontier. I'm your host Robin Fairfield. And I'm broadcasting from the heart of the Kodiak National Wildlife Refuge on Kodiak Island in Alaska. This store is not specifically a Taylor murder. Although I do believe it does involve a murder. I chose the story because it describes the independent streak of many Alaskans and their desire to live without government. Interference it also conveys the friend late open nature of Rural Alaskans and their willingness to trust others and go the extra mile to lend a helping hand to strangers this story also unfortunately reveals the nature of those few individuals who moved to Alaska to escape their sins only to repeat them here and become an ugly stain on the fabric of the Alaska Landscape in most wilderness areas in Alaska. You are likely to find a few people who've chosen to live in such a remote area because they want to escape. Societal norms and public scrutiny. Most of these individuals are good. People who simply don't WanNa be bothered by the government don't WanNa be told how to raise their children or want to be able to follow their own spiritual beliefs. Alaska does have laws though. Alaska is not the wild west. Papa pilgrim probably could have hidden off the grid in the Alaskan Wilderness and continued his horrible rain over his family. Had he not taken on the National Park Service and turned a spotlight on himself and his family? My first podcast episode chronicled the mail. Day murders in tiny McCarthy Alaska the ghost mining town in the heart of the huge Rangel Saint Elias National Park. Most of this story is also said McCarthy and it begins where my last story ended Chris Richards. One of the survivors of the McCarthy Mail Day massacre died when his cabin burned a few days before Christmas in two thousand one at almost the same moment when flames leapt from richards cabin. The Pilgrim clan marched into McCarthy PAPA. Pilgrim country rose and their fifteen children made quite a spectacle in the streets and McCarthy Alaska the strange story. Papa Pilgrim begins much earlier than his arrival in McCarthy Vo. I'll start when he was in high school and went by his legal name. Robert or bobby. Hail Bobby's father I B Hale was a college football star. Who turned down an offer to play for the Washington and instead joined the FBI. Bobby hail grew up in an affluent family in Arlington Texas. He his twin brother Billy and they're younger brother. Tommy attended Arlington Heights. High School Robert Hale was known for his video temper and the love for fighting with his fists. He even trained as a boxer as youth at age seventeen. Bobby ran off with his sixteen year. Old High School Sweetheart. Kathleen or K. K. Connolly the daughter of future Texas governor. John connally John. Connolly's perhaps best remembered for riding in the car with John F. Kennedy in Dallas on the day Kennedy was assassinated Bobby K. eloped and moved to Tallahassee Florida where K- k- soon learned. She was pregnant. Bobby cake had a tumultuous relationship and on Monday April twenty seventh nineteen fifty nine following an explosive argument K. Spent the night with the landlady of their apartment building the following morning K. K. Went to the local police station and asked if they could send her back to her parents and Texas before. The officers had a chance to help her K. K. Return to her apartment where she was found dead a few hours later the back of her head blown away by twenty gauge shotgun. According to Bobby he arrived home and found his wife lying on the sofa with a loaded shotgun threatening to kill herself. He tried to get her to put down the gun but when she refused he lunged for the shotgun and discharged. Cake as death was ruled an accident. Despite the absence of cake as prints on the shotgun and the fact that she was shot in the back of the head after K. K. Died BOBBY RETURNED TO FORT. Worth where he received his ged and attended Texas Christian University for a short while a few months. Later Bobby and his twin brother billy or caught breaking into the Los Angeles apartment of Judith. Exner the rumored mistress of JFK and a woman who supposedly also had ties with Sam Giancana a leading figure in the Chicago Mafia. No explanation ever emerged to suggest. Why the hill brothers broke into extras apartment. But not long after the break in the. Us government awarded one of the largest military contracts in US history to IB hails new employer general dynamics some historians wonder if the brothers were trying to find evidence in ex-nurse apartment about her affair with Kennedy to blackmail the president into awarding. General Dynamics. The defense contract bobby. Hail next wondered from California to Houston and back to California where he ran with the same crowd as Charles. Manson at age. Thirty three bobby. Who was then going by the name Bob? Sun-star met sixteen year old. Carina Rose Bressler near a waterfall in the San Bernardino Mountains. He soon began calling his new girlfriend. Country Rose Hale and rose found job caretaking. A ranch owned by actor. Jack Nicholson in a remote section of northern New Mexico. They stayed on the New Mexico ranch for more than twenty years raising sheep and goats and growing vegetables. Rose gave birth to their first child. Butterfly sun-star later renamed Elijah in nineteen seventy five and every other year. Rose bore another child until she and Hale had fifteen children. Hail experimented with a variety of religions but finally settled on his own self serving form of Christianity. He changed his name to pop a pilgrim and was not shy about sharing his version of the Gospel with anyone. Who would listen? The pilgrim children. Never Watch television and had no access to computers. They received no formal education. And we're naive about the ways of the world. Only Elijah and the oldest boys learned how to read. Hail destroyed all the family. Books except the Bible and a copy of Pilgrim's progress and refused to teach the children how to read or even how to perform simple mathematical calculations. He wanted them to know the scripture only through his teaching he did not want them to read the Bible for themselves and then questioned his interpretation of it hail force children to haul his bath water every night and then allowed them to take baths in his dirty water every three to four days. He bragged that his kids bathed in their undergarments and had never seen a naked body including their own hail demanded total obedience from rose and his children and when he determined they had disobeyed him. He unleashed swift brutal punishment. He whipped them with a leather strap or his belt and he hit them with his fists as a trained boxer. He delivered brutal. Beatings when Halen rose. I moved to New Mexico ranch. They lived miles from their nearest neighbors. But over time people began moving closer to the strange backwoods couple whose children never seemed to go to school hale taught his children. It was okay to steal from neighbor if a neighbor had something they needed when neighbors started accusing hail of theft and threatened to write a letter to Jack. Nicholson asking him to evict the hill family from the ranch. Papa Pilgrim decided. It was time to take his show on the road and move his clan to Alaska once in Alaska. He believed he could live in seclusion with his family. Preaches God's people and act as Lord of his kingdom would hale did not seem to realize is that conditions can be extreme in Alaska and you often must depend on others to survive. The pilgrim family drifted around Alaska for a few years. They lived in fairbanks and then in homer for short time. But neither town offered Papa the seclusion. He desired for his family. He knew as soon as he drove into. Mccarthy in January two thousand two. This was where he wanted to settle. He did not plan to live in McCarthy itself but he wanted his home to be near enough to the small town so he could get supplies. They're on the Weekly Mail plane. Nail dear ish who was in the process of remodeling the McCarthy Lodge. For the summer tourism season was the first to notice the strange arrival of the pilgrim family. The temperature hovered at twenty degrees below zero. But most of the huddled together in the open beds of two pickup trucks. When the trucks roll to a stop in front of the lodge the kids sprang from the beds and began looking around town excitedly. A man with long grey hair along beard a weathered face and piercing blue eyes climbed from the cab of one of the trucks and introduced himself to Garish. As Pilgrim Darioush invited the family into the Lodges Dining Room. Pilgrim had come to McCarthy with only ten of his kids rose stayed back with the younger kids. While Papa chucked out McCarthy and scouted available Property Papa liked what he saw McCarthy and the pilgrims charmed the dozen residents who gathered at the lodge to meet them. The pilgrim kids grabbed fiddles guitars and a mandolin from their trucks and put on an impromptu bluegrass concert for the crowd. The children were cute shy and various religious. Most of the residents welcomed the pilgrims. But at least one in the crowd of townspeople saw papa pilgrim for the con. Man He was papa. Pilgrim soon returned to McCarthy with country rose and their fifteen children. They bought an abandoned mine. Fourteen miles from McCarthy up the mountain and accessible only by the nearly impassable McCarthy Green Butte Road Papa called their new Home Hillbilly Heaven Hill Billy. Heaven could be reached by Snow Machine Horse and even on foot if you didn't mind hiking for a day since it was impossible to drive a truck up the road. Though pilgrim arranged for supplies to be delivered by Bush plane or by horse the freight costs soon became too expensive. However and in the fall of two thousand and two. When the family ran short on funds the pilgrims began to secretly use a bulldozer to clear the old road to town since the road ran through the wrangle. Saint Elias National Park and Park Regulations Prohibited Clearing Park land or altering the old road in any way. Pilgrim did his best to hide his illicit actions from the park service. The following spring when Park Rangers discovered what the pilgrims had done to the road. They began surveying the damage. And prepared a lawsuit against Robert Hale. Aka Papa Pilgrim. Pilgrim wasted. No time preying on the generosity of other Alaskans and asking for their sympathy and support. He posted the letters around McCarthy about the unfairness of the park service. Denying his simple God fearing family access to their home. He invited a television news. Crew Anchorage so it's viewers could see the families simple lifestyle and Papuka talk about how much they needed the old road to haul supplies to their home. In Hillbilly Heaven. The charming news piece created support for the pilgrims and anger against the Park Service. The story about the pilgrims and their simple godly lifestyle. High Above McCarthy in Hillbilly Heaven Spread to national and international news organizations the Washington Post The economist. Cnn and the BBC all did stories on the pilgrims and they're backward lifestyle. Zealous reporters uncovered. The Story of hails passed. But the pilgrim patriarch revelled in all the attention and greedily accepted proffered charity. He pushed his charming in front of the cameras and never missed an opportunity for his family to perform their gospel tunes. For the press residents of McCarthy who had I found the pilgrim's charming and had welcome them with open arms soon began to grow tired of the clan. At the beginning of the two thousand four summer tour season pilgrim dress some of his younger children in ragged outfits and stationed them by the footbridge into McCarthy where they sold tickets for a bus ride up to the Kennecott mine. Other local families already provided a bus service to the mind and the residents McCarthy resented the pilgrims for stealing the business the pilgrims also set up a squatters camp down the street from the McCarthy Lodge where they stayed when they were in town. Not only did they encroach on the properties of others but they brought their livestock into the camp forcing their neighbors to deal with the smell and excrement from the animals. Mccarthy residents repeatedly asked the pilgrims to move their squatters camp but when they refused Stevens Harper a park ranger and a neighbor whose driveway had been partially blocked by the pilgrims possessions approached their camp driving a bulldozer. Two dozen McCarthy residents arrived on the scene to support Harper and Papa. Pilgrim finally moved the camp to a parcel of land. He'd recently purchased at the end of the McCarthy road. Papa pilgrim continue to teach his kids. It was okay for them to steal equipment and animals from others and at the father had a run in with one of the locals he often sit and Joshua and Jacob his two oldest sons to follow or frighten them when Park Service. Rangers attempted to climb the road to talk to pilgrim. Some of the oldest kids at first followed the Rangers on horseback and then blocked their way when they got closer to Hillbilly Papa. Pilgrim liked to preach his version of the Gospel and when others disagreed with him he'd get mad. And leave the people of McCarthy found Papa pilgrim overbearing and self righteous and. They were concerned about the welfare of the kids. The older kids often sported large bruises and people wondered if the bruises had been caused by a rough life outdoors or was there source more sinister. A few realized most of the kids could not read and they wondered if the children had ever received formal schooling. Let me pause for a minute to thank the folks at the Puzzle Game Best Fiends.

Although the residents McCarthy worried about the pilgrim children most felt it was not their place to interfere in the lives of this devout Christian family who seemed well adjusted and happy no one could know the horrors country rose and her children endured at the hands of Papa. Pilgrim pilgrim began having sexual relations with his oldest daughter Alicia when she was eighteen years old ten years later she her father and her mother often shared the same bed. Hail told his daughter that her mother was old and ugly and no longer excited him. He told Aleisha she needed to get him excited so he could plant his seat in her mother. Alicia hated having sex with Papa. She knew it wasn't right but when she told her father she thought their relationship was simple. Papa told her the Scripture said it was okay for a father to have intimate relations with his oldest daughter. He also pointed out she was helping her. Mother have more children in two thousand four. The pilgrim's Mitt another devout Christian family. Who lived in Palmer Alaska? The Buckinghamshire had nine children. And the Pilgrim. Children were thrilled to meet new friends at first. Even Papa pilgrim like the Buckingham. But then Jim Buckingham. Noticed the many bruises on Alita and suspected her father was physically and sexually abusing her when Buckingham confronted pilgrim about a suspicions. Pilgrim grew angry and ordered his to leave the Buckingham home. While at the Buckingham Alicia told the Buckingham Girls. The Bible discouraged marriage the Buckingham Girls. Who knew the Bible well explained to Aleisha? Bussey was misquoting. The Bible Alicia began to wonder if her father had misquoted the Bible on purpose and she began to question everything. Papa had told her she especially wondered whether the Bible said it was right for father and daughter to have sexual relations. Papa seemed to be losing control of his temper more often when Jonathan the youngest child cried Papa would set the baby on his lap and pinched nose and mouth closed until the baby began to turn blue and pass out this action not only scared Jonathan but also terrified rose in the kids. So Papa began to Pinch Jonathan's nose mouth closed to keep the others in line in January. Two thousand five pop took Aleisha and some of the boys with him. Down the mountain to McCarthy together supplies and they stayed in the shack on the edge of town that night. Papa argued with the boys over something Jim Buckingham had told them he sent the boys out to unload trucks and then lost his temper with Aleisha when she told him he had not been teaching them. What the Bible really said? He took off his belt and began whipping. Alicia when the boys heard her scream they returned to the shack. Alicia tried to run out the door. But Papa grabbed her by the hair and dragged her back inside the cabin. He told the boys to leave so they got on their snow machines and headed up the valley to their home. Papa beat Alicia and raped her repeatedly. He kept her locked in the shack for three days and when he finally took her home he made her wear a ski mask so the others could not see her bruises and her badly swollen face. Aleisha six year old sister. Jerusalem asked deletion remove her ski mask and Jerusalem felt sick when she saw leash obas face. It was so swollen and bruised. She barely recognised her sister. Alicia brothers were shocked and angry when they saw her face and told Papa he was a wrong for beating her Alicia admitted to her. Brother's what Papa had been doing to her. She didn't say he had sexually abused her but she said he had treated her like a wife only a hundred times worse and it was as bad as they could imagine. The older boys confronted their father. And Papa Hit. Josh will with his fist and broke. Josh was knows the four older boys decided to leave home and told Aleisha she needed to leave to after they left. Papa declared his sons lost to the devil and his behavior Goo even more erratic as he continued to beat Alicia and punish the younger kids. For small wrongs. Mama told Aleisha to run away from home but Chaba was too terrified about what Papa would do to her if he khader finally one day when the gasoline supply for the generator ran low. Papa decided to make a quick trip to McCarthy to get gas and Alicia Banou. This was her chance to make a break for it. She announced to the others that she was leaving and Jerusalem said she would go with her. Jerusalem worried Alicia did not have the will to keep herself alive so she wanted to accompany and take care of her sister. Momma called Joseph in Glen Allen and he said he and the other boys would meet Alicia and Jerusalem when they arrived in McCarthy and would keep them safe from Papa Alicia Jerusalem knew they did not have long before papa returned he planned to hurry to. Mccarthy grabbed the gas and rush back up the hill because he was afraid Alicia would escape if he left her alone along. The young women attempted to start one of the snow machines but it would not fire when they looked at the engine. They realized the spark plug had been removed they replaced the spark plug told the family. Goodbye drove a short distance over the snow and the fan belt broke. Jerusalem struggled through the deep snow back to the cabin and started a second machine. They only one a short distance on this no machine though before it ran out of gas and they saw had a fuel line leak. They were running out of time. Before Papa returned and in desparation they transferred to a third snow machine. They travelled a short distance and then pulled off the main trail and hid in the trees. Jerusalem had brought white sheets with them so they covered themselves and the snow machine with the sheets and remained motionless in the snow. Aleisha not even imagine the magnitude of poppas rage. If he found them and once he got near the cabin he would see the stalled snow machines and know something was wrong as they heard. Papa snow machine coming up. The trail Alicia prayed and tried to remain calm when he drove past them. Aleisha told her sister they had to hurry. They had one half hour at best before. Papa would be on their trail when they arrived. Mccarthy their brothers were not at the meeting place a leash pulled US know machine into thick brush and she in Jerusalem crawled under the bowels of a spruce tree hiding from their father and waiting for their brothers. They heard Papa snow machine searching the streets of the town circling and waiting for any sign of his missing daughters Alicia and Jerusalem state under the spruce street for five days eating cold cheese and raisins while the temperature dropped twenty degrees below zero at night. They didn't dare build a fire and they had no sleeping bags so they huddled and waited. They finally decided to sneak down to their town shack and use the phone. They knew they had to be careful though because their father be staying at the cabin when they arrived at the shack they quietly searched the surrounding woods and indeed pop ahead hidden is no machine in the thick brush. The girls hurried back to their hiding place and the next day they entered another cabin and use the phone there to call their brothers. The brothers had misunderstood the original rendezvous spot and had been actually waiting to hear from their sisters. The brothers rescued Aleisha and Jerusalem. And the girls eventually went to live with the Buckingham in Palmer. A few months later when Alicia heard Papa had nearly beaten two year old Joseph to death. She knew it was time to report. Papas many sins to the authorities Robert Hale heard the troopers were after him and he managed to hide from them for twelve days but was eventually found arrested. He stood quietly. While the troopers placed the handcuffs on him hale continued to deny the claims made by his wife and children even after a palmer. Grand jury charged him in September. Two Thousand Five with thirty felony accounts of Rape Assault and incest. He pleaded not guilty to the charges but a year later he changed his plea to no contest in exchange for a fourteen year prison sentence at Hale sentencing hearing in September two thousand seven his wife and all his children except the youngest one addressed the court and their father. Berating him and asking him why he had done such terrible things to them. They told the judge they love their father. And we're trying not to hold any bitterness against him but they begged the judge not to let him out of Prison S. Fourteen of his fifteen children's spoke at the sentencing hearing the spectators cringed while they heard for the first time the horrors the Hale family had endured at the hands of their father Aleisha when she detailed some of her father's most appalling acts toward her sick in the crowd. The children confessed. They thought the world was normal until they met the Buckingham and realized there was another way to live. Robert Hale died in a prison hospital on March twenty. Sixth two thousand eight only eight months into his fourteen year sentence. He was sixty seven years old and had been in poor health for many years with Vance. Roses diabetes and blood clots. He never apologized to his family nor repented for his evil deeds in the he refused to talk to his family. Most of the hailed children moved in with a Buckingham 's where they were taught to read and write. Joseph and Joshua married the two oldest Buckingham Daughters and Alicia is also now married. How do you erase a lifetime of and a childhood where you were taught how to survive on your own in the Wilderness? But we're taught nothing about how do belong to society and treat others hopefully with much support. The hail children will find their way. The residents of McCarthy who had originally found the hail children's sweet in the family charming were horrified when they learned the nightmare. Papa pilgrim created for his family in the cabin on the mountain. In addition to the fifteen children born to Robert and Rose Hale Hale fathered three children from previous marriages. Country Rose was hails fourth wife and probably not his first abuse victim K. K. Connolly was sixteen years old when she married Robert Hale and she died forty four days later from a shotgun blast to the back of her head K. K. was certainly one of Hale's earliest victims if you would like to listen to extra episodes of murder and mystery in the last frontier. I invite you to join the last Frontier Club.

Is we really try to make that connection to the past here at the museum. And how really kind of how it connects with you to eight. Four history isn't to readings wayne parker with the stories. Podcast talking today. Remotely with kevin cabrera. Who's executive director of the heritage museum of orange county. You may be surprised to learn how much this museum reflects. Much of the nation's history and culture will hear stories of orange county of course in southern california the cultures that are native to that area in here perhaps a little career advice and the importance of mr ebi and how this story can affect all of us. So you're thinking who in the world is mr ebi. Well he's one example of all those teachers who inspired and encouraged to students to pursue their interest in this case. That student was kevin kevin. Thanks for being with us today. Could you start by giving an introduction to the museum and what people can expect on a visit. Were located on twelve acres of property half of our properties. What we call our cultural plaza. Which means that. We have our historic houses We have citrus groves we have rose gardens. We have blacksmith shop. we have a replica. Dobie home so that's makes a part of our And then just within open space in trees and other things amendment. We have our what we call. Our nature preserve our gospel swamp. Which is the other half of our property Which is exactly what it is. The nature preserve so we have To wetlands We have walking trails So you can walk the trails and walk the wetlands and walk the space and learn about plant habitats to learn about wildlife habitat And then on the far end of our property We actually have a two acre produce farm so we actually grow some heirloom varieties of crops. That were here locally on during our boom agricultural period of orange county But then what we've also done is to really connect Our community on to to their spaces and their places origin. We actually have what we call a seed library so we have We grow crops from around the world's on that have been brought to us by community members and and they kind of share those stories of what they remember growing up in what they remember eating growing in their home countries had and it kinda just highest back into their place and and space here in orange county today. That's kevin cabrera executive director of the heritage museum of orange county. And this is wayne parker of the stories here. Podcast kevin of describe the museum is. It's kind of a nature area. Also there's a. It's a bit of a refuge for people in the area. Could you tell us about that. The museum is is more of a like an outdoors. A venue in. So what we've done is we've really incorporated into our brown's a lot more interpretation of the history of the city and history of the county to provide a more much much rich enriching experience for the visitors. So you know some of the things that we've been doing is we've been doing some cultural murals around the around the sites We've been offer we offer more. We offer on grounds tours in nature hikes. And so i think a particular comments that has been made to our staff into myself is that you can be hammered history fan or you can be a fan of urban agriculture or you can be a a particularly interested in nature and preservation or or maybe just an art and you know comments that we receive. Is that when you come to the heritage museum. You actually get a little bit of everything. He had a tasted everything. You can see art and how it reflects to our history and culture. You can see the historic buildings preservation of the pass You can About rat life and wildlife. And how you know. There's this kind of relationship between humans and animals and plants and what it means for us to be able to protect these environments and then you can also have this This connection to food and on how food is very important to bring people together But it's also a necessity necessity to our life. So i think the comments that were received as the that people get a little bit of a taste everything and really connects with them in that regard. And as i understand it. A lot of your program is geared toward youth. His is that right a few years ago. We started a program for a summer program for high school youth. And it's a we call the program a peop- the people's history of orange county and we really explore people of color Just the general Growth the county in and the idea of various people in immigration and migration coming into the space in hand for them to get to chance to explore and learn about he stories. It made it more enriching for them. And i think the biggest thing that we as educators in museums need to do is we really need to connect with the next generation the the our our younger generations and and i took early in history where students and and people on youth are necessarily seeing themselves taught in the history lessons or seeing themselves as portrayed as important figures. This was very important to them that they they were now kind of deeply connected to the stories of ancestors Within their community. That's kevin cabrera speaking with us remotely from his office where he's the executive director of the heritage museum of orange county and this is wayne parker of the stories here. Podcast kevin.

We actually handmade adobe bricks dry out in the sun and a and we had an awesome time and obviously the the dobie home that we built being used today and then after that i went back to the city i was still doing work with the city and then i randomly got an email. Maybe about six months later from the director saying. Are you interested in working here. We need help with our programs and so my schedule worked out. Well where i moved in. I came into the museum. I was working at the museum in the mornings. And then i would go to the city in the afternoons and then i was going to school at eight and And then i work my way up. So i went from during a volunteer project to program. Staff and then i moved into our archival on collections and assisting with duration of some smaller exhibits and in developing partnerships to develop larger exhibits and then It's almost five years ago. Five years now on when our predecessor resigned our board of directors tap needs to become the interim executive director. And then i spent six months interim and then i moved into director executive director and So you know it's i. I feel lucky that i was happened to be here. I i met that professor. That is that opened my eyes to what history can do. You know the internship at the city. And i just felt like all those just kind of blend in and and i felt like i was lucky but also there is a lot of hard work along the way. That's kevin cabrera speaking remotely from the heritage museum of orange county. He's the executive director and we're talking about his background in his career and kevin. I love hearing this from people that i talked to. And i want to ask you the question when you were back in mr abbas class in high school or even younger and if someone had told you then you'd be in this position today how surprise would you have been on a scale of one to ten with ten. Being the most surprised. I would probably say a nine or can. I wouldn't have thought that i could make it. I wouldn't have thought that i could. I can make it to that level and while if that person would have known like your history person that you could do that. I think there was It was a lot of maybe other factors that probably would play into my might thinking about. Obviously my parents are immigrants into this country. My parents immigrated from mexico. We grew up. You know struggling as a family on one of six kids. I didn't necessarily have any exposure to museums at all my during my life. So it's not something that i would have ever saw not not really experienced so i think if someone would have told me that i would say attend because it was not that was really on my radar like i would have never thought that museum would have been his face as a career. It's so interesting to me. Because the people that i talked to for the stories here podcast i find a lot of them are surprised that they end up with what they're doing. And yet it was something that was was really near and dear to them. It turns out all along. Okay so you gave it a nine or a ten on the scale of ten. And if you had been a mr abbas class in the surprise that you would have felt saying what you you're doing today what would mr ebi say up to see what you're up to these days and being executive director of this museum. Well i laugh. Because i actually still stay in contact with mr heavy. He's come by the museum many times to visit. We have lunch together. And he says he's so proud of me while it's a great story about that continuing relationship that you have with him. Now you're on the other side and you're a teacher of all of these people who are coming to the museum and maybe other interactions that you have. What's your advice to them about history about museums. Or maybe just about life in general. What thoughts do you share with them. Yeah i think my advice. And i get a chance to speak to a lot of youth and a lot of students in college students. I was actually at my alma mater. You know this past monday speaking to college students. And so i i have an opportunity to speak to quite a few people from their young to even college age and i would say that i believe within student. I think kids since students know what their interests are. And an i would say really start to look at what you're interested in if you are interested in history than pickup books or you know. Look at look through podcasts. Store youtube videos of of these topics and themes that. You're interested in. I i tell a lot of people that A lot of youth and students that you know one of the things that we don't do as a society a lot anymore. We don't read and i tell and i liked i liked. I try to encourage on youth that. Hey if you're really interested in heart than read books apart or if you're really interested in science read books about science you know we all have that that up something that. We're really intrigued by so followed out. And there's so much you can learn about that specific area and for my standpoint. I didn't necessarily have that encouragement or have that as a child. So so i would i. That's where i suggest the other thing. That i would suggest as well in any i really encourage and it's not something that i encourage but it's also something that i do because i think it's very valuable is i encourage youth and people that come across to to find mentors. Mentored high still have mentors today. High mentor quite a few youth. And i think it's very very valuable. I think people need help in whether it's school or just personal lines or anything like that. And i think the value of a mentor is so incredible. And so it's something that i've kind of embedded in my you know my own philosophy and i think it's having someone that you can talk to that is successful. That is that is making an impact in the community. It's so it's so it's a firm europe you're actually seeing this on a specially when it comes to people of color. I think when people of color they don't see a people of influence that look like them. It makes it harder to dream the possibilities searching for my standpoint. That's very true as well because there is very. There's a huge lack of diversity within the museum field. And so for me being latino and being an executive director. That's there's no other museum in orange county that's act and so you know do research humping that you're interested in and find a mentor couple mentors. That's what those are things. That i would that i would encourage. We're speaking today. Was kevin cabrera is executive director of the heritage museum of orange county. This is wayne parker of the stories here. Podcast and you can get more information about the museum and heritage museum. Oc dot org and you can also listen to other episodes of this podcast at stories here dot com or on your favorite podcast so kevin few could tell us more about the museum known about the place that has been important to so many people. Yeah so we have two historic homes on site. We have the kellogg house and then we have the mad house. On the nag kellogg couches built in eighteen. Ninety eight and the house is built in eighteen. Nine hundred eighty nine so You know we We try to have the visitors. Having experience of how life would have been during the eighteen ninety s when they go home but then it's also so much more so we say you know we have these eighteen ninety eight to eighty ninety s beautiful victorian homes and And knows where basically those are. Those are the centerpieces of the newseum on those homes. Obviously we preserve the family histories We preserve the homes Which i would say that historic preservation. You know more. Probably more specifically on the west coast. His is not necessarily huge priority. When you go when you go back to the east coast visit cities on the east coast. People are a little bit more aware and a little bit more fame bellevue. I believe historic preservation in the east the west coast. It's a little bit rare so So we share stories of the families. We actually have archives collections of the families as well And so yeah we say you know the the the museum you have this on you you you literally get a chance to step back into time especially when you walk onto twelve acres. There's a lot to see. You're talking about the value of all these different cultures communicating with one another. And certainly the big story of this country and of california is immigration. You've said that your parents were immigrants. Does your family situation going up in that. you think. Help you tell those stories as you talk to people yes definitely I definitely think that that kind of personal experience in knowing my parents have stories coming here and understanding that You know my parents experiences one kind of unique experience to maybe themselves just to in overall maybe kind of experience immigration from people of mexico. I believe that You know all people who eventually immigrated into the united states during ready to an area they have these stories in there is a shared experience their shared their shared experiences in the senate. And i think when we understand that there are shared experiences in in on in experience when things like this occur that it actually gives us a he keeper understanding of ourselves an appreciation for other people that we are not familiar with and and actually connects them. There's a connection so for example We were talking to our when we were doing the interviews and talking with our vietnamese elders. The students myself. We made a lot of connections to it means culture to mexican culture and if it wasn't for us having these conversations really actually getting down and sitting down and spending time with These these elders. These folks community members neighbors actually We would have. We would have had never known and so like one example within that. Is you know the They were they were sharing. How there's a celebration That do The they do memorials for family members. Who have passed away and they kind of build these little altars in their homes to members of their families who passed away And the first thing that the students thought of for like hey. This is the same thing that we do. For what else we do. The same exact thing and so for them they're like it just gave them the value and appreciation for other people. Say how we are. Not so very different. We are super unique in our own culture in our own ways. But we're also very similar. And we're continuing our discussion kevin cabrera. Who's the executive director of the heritage museum of orange county kevin. You've been talking about all these cultural things. I know you also have a focus on sort of hands on things. And i was hoping to come down and learn how to be a blacksmith. But i guess that's gotta be a delayed a little bit based on something that happened here. That is correct but we actually had a fully functioning blacksmith shop on sites. We teach lacks machine classes the gills and then we also all of our elementary programs which i'm run from kindergarten to fifth grade We can also add the blacksmith component to that program. Yes for a fourth of july. Two o'clock in the morning the fire. The the blacksmith shop actually caught fire and burned down and so the entire for for the entire shop was burnt. So that's bump in the road. We are obviously currently working with insurance to get everything hopefully back in running as soon as we can. but that's also a a beloved dump. Space within the newseum people don't necessarily get get to smell coal-burning anymore and nc the fire in the origin and actually get to learn that trade and and that trade even though it's not how it was hundred years ago hundred twenty years ago. Where you know blacksmiths. Were joined things to the commute for the community that were very necessary so like making a a a butter knife that you have to use. While that's not hobby see were blacksmiths or doing today. There'd be more creative. With the the skill blacksmith him And so you see how something like blacks mccain has a ball from being something that was very necessary for community for the likelihood of a community to now being a creative space where you can create things that people are going to enjoy and there's going to be one of a kind hello. This is wayne parker with the stories. Podcast continuing my conversation with kevin cabrera. Who's executive director of the heritage museum of orange county and kevin like to ask. Now what would we have seen five or six hundred years ago at that location. Oh i love that you mentioned that. So yeah five hundred. Five hundred seventy years ago What's really unique about the museum is. We're located really adjacent to the river. The santa ana river which is the the major water source You know kind of that kind of to orange county so it comes all the way from the san bernardino mountains and that river flows oddly down to the beach to the ocean essentially and so Five hundred six hundred years ago The space that will we are currently but then also not just what we are currently. But we're heritage museum and santa ana would have been we would have a it would have been the space of The us binga village. So i'll spell it out. He a. s. b. e. n. g. main b. e. n. g. Bus think village which was Are indigenous communities are indigenous gabriella. No or a tunga community are native americans. They typically have their villages right adjacent or close by Own water source would have been the san river So are are indigenous communities. Would there was. There was a bustling village which we like to see would have been basically the museum. Grounds are on and probably a little bit extending as well. That would have been kind of the site and then just a whole lot of native plants. you know oak trees wild wild Bunnies and Hawks and als- so a lot of just kind of a native of native wildlife handgun on plants. You know A trees probably a bunch of tooley in sycamore and arroyo willow and meal fat and a bunch of native plants with larger mammals. Not necessarily i would. Obviously you have a a bog. Cats There might have been some mountain. Lions bears You would have coyotes and things of that nature. so i'd probably say like the large larger mammal moore. I those it goes mammals up arms and then if you would have gone like thousands or hundreds of millions of years ago in orange county would have been actually out of the ocean. So you have like wales. Things have any interest. There's a whole nother organization here in orange county. That kind of on is a stewards of all archaeology on artifacts and phones. That are more like the natural history. This is wayne parker with the stories. Here podcast talking today. Remotely with kevin cabrera. Who's executive director of the heritage museum of orange county kevin. I really appreciate your time. And i wanted to ask you about in my discussions with people for the stories here. Podcast i think a lot about the power of place and i'm curious if that's something you think about an and if so what it might mean to you any person who comes here than they get that power place would. It needs to them. And i think that's why we're we're really really trying to expand everything that we do here because it allows an opportunity for someone to find it. And maybe this space and i think from the standpoint of what our staff does and everyone who's involved with heritage museum the power place here are the sense of place here at heritage museum really connecting each and every one of us and i think that's why we've been so successful kevin. Thank you for your time today. What a wonderful conversation and also our thanks to the staff. Volunteers government officials and guests who make the heritage museum such an important place to experience and a nod also to the native peoples in animals who occupied that land. Long before us.
