"All right, straight ahead. You will not believe what is to blame for America's wild hog explosion. It's so crazy. It's like a Saturday Night Live skit. That this is why it's happening. It's next. It's bob and sherry. Can you believe this is brought to you by State Farm? You read it once. I don't believe that. And then you're ready to go. I can't believe this. It's bob and cherries. I believe this. Is a believe this. Okay, so at first I know you're going to be like, what? But bear with me because this is a very fascinating, freaky little rabbit hole to fall down. I clicked on an article a couple of weeks ago on wild pigs. And what I've read lit up my imagination so much that I started reading other things. And I want to tell you a couple of things about wild pigs, feral hogs. That you didn't know, including why, when you find out why we have such a freaking problem with them right now, you're going to go, wow, no way. Okay. I didn't know there was a problem. There's a massive problem. Now, Texas is the only state where a human being has been killed by a feral hog. But when I finish with you in the next couple of minutes, you're going to be looking both ways when you leave the house at night to take the trash out. So the world's biggest expert in wild pigs is at the federal Savannah river national laboratory in South Carolina. His name is Jack Meyer. And he says, if you wanted to create the perfect invasive specie, one that can live anywhere can eat anything, really high reproductive rates, super destructive, and almost impossible to control. Welcome to the wild pig. Wild hogs. Now, they got here in the 1500s with the Spanish colonizers because they brought them over as meat. And over the centuries, they did settle in the forests of the southeastern United States and they mix up their genes with escape domestic pigs and this Eurasian board that was brought to the country for hunting. And that three way kind of sassy crossbreeding that happened in the forest late at night. Produced a three foot tall 5 foot long razor tusk bristle aggressive wild animal that has the ability to produce big litters and have the rapid breeding cycle domestic pigs. Three feet tall, 5 feet long. They weigh a couple hundred pounds and they can dent your car. Now, the hogs didn't stay in the Woods. That was the problem. They've been moving through suburbs and into city into cities. We have wild hogs in all 48 lower states now to a wild hog, whether it's your garden, your golf course, your landfill, that's a buffet. Experts in say, experts say that wild pigs will eat anything that has a calorie in it. And they're doing about two and a half $1 billion worth of damage a year. So how do we have this problem? Why do we have so many wild hogs? So I read one interview with a guy in Georgia who has a thing called the white oak pastures, which is a livestock farm. And he said, when I was a kid, you never saw a wild hog, but now they're everywhere. Where did all of these wild hogs come from? They only migrate themselves. They're a territory expands naturally about four to 8 miles per year, but that's not the reason they've spread. Basic cable television is the reason wild hogs have spread, listen to this. Pre cable, you might have a hunting show on TV. Maybe it will be on ABC's wide world of sports or PBS might throw you a bone, right? But then here comes basic cable. We don't just have hunting shows. We have entire outdoor and hunting networks. And they need enough content to fill 24 hours a day. And they start at showing programs about wild pig hunting. And people were like, that looks exciting. I want to go wild pig honey. And as people watch these TV shows on cable, and they want it to go wild pig hunting, they realize that they had to travel to the places that had wild pigs. But some entrepreneurial folks said, wait, wait. What if we bring the wild pigs here? And even though it sounds crazy and also probably illegal in a lot of places, they can prove it because they go out into the Woods and they do genetic tests on these wild pig populations, and they're like, isn't it the damnedest thing? Here's some wild pigs in Georgia that have the same DNA as wild pigs in New Jersey. Here's a cluster of feral hogs in California whose DNA matches a family of feral hogs in Kentucky. And the people studying these pigs say, they're not, they're not expanding four miles a year. They're expanding at 70 miles an hour, which is about the speed of a pickup truck. Down the highway. So the next time you're flipping channels and by the way, they're coming into cities and suburbs now and you better be careful because not only are they three feet long and 5 feet tall and aggressive AF and they carry a ton of diseases that threaten domestic pigs and they are not afraid of anything, their eyes don't shine. They're one of the few animals that don't have eye shine. So you'll be driving down the road and a big dark giant aggressive wild hog crosses in front of you, but your headlights don't pick up the eye shine. Fishing game and state troopers say if I see a road killed pig, I promise you a hundred yards down the road. There's the car that hit it. Completely immobilized by the damage that was done. Wow. You know what's going to be next? Cocaine pigs. This is going to be a movie. Yeah. Yeah. Definitely. So just think about that the next time you're flipping channels and you go by one of those hunting shows or outdoor shows and they're out with their night goggles and they're stalking wild hogs. Those TV shows are the reason we have so many wild hogs. Yeah. Isn't that wild? Yeah, heads up, get a flashlight. All right, straight ahead right here on the bobbin sherry show, what is the perfect man in 2023? Are you the perfect guy in 2023 in women's eyes? It's up next. It's bob and sherry.

"And a.m. 8 20. NPR news and the New York conversation. Live from NPR news in Washington. I'm Dave Mattingly. Ian is expected to make landfall in South Carolina today as a category one hurricane. The storm regained strength after moving off Florida yesterday and is likely to come ashore in the Charleston area, a hurricane warning extends from the Savannah river to cape fear North Carolina. In Florida, search and rescue efforts and damage assessments are continuing in the aftermath of Ian, especially along the Gulf Coast in the Fort Myers area. That's where Ian made landfall as a category four storm, more than 2 million homes and businesses are still without power there. NPR's Meg Anderson says Ian closed many schools in Florida. More than 50 of Florida's 67 public school districts closed for at least one day during the storm. And the majority of the students affected have missed three days or more. Hillsborough county public schools, which includes Tampa was one of the largest districts affected. Schools there closed for 5 days. Ovett Wilson is the principal at piso K 8 school in Tampa. That's obvious that things are different. Climate wise. And the frequency in hurricanes have been a concern, especially for Florida. Wilson's school plans to reopen Monday, but several harder hit districts have yet to announce their reopening plans. Meg Anderson and PR news. This is NPR news from Washington.

Public three one one complaints about syringes littering New York City's sidewalks have been growing in recent years to address the issue the city council was considering a program that would pay drug users to turn in their use needles. WNYC's Caroline Lewis reports. Similar to a bottle return program, the syringe buyback plan would pay out 20 cents for each needle collected, and participants could earn up to $10 per day. A city council bill seeking to pilot the program was introduced last month by council member Diana Ayala, who represents parts of Harlem and the south Bronx, children are coming in contact with dirty needles, day in and day out. And quite frankly, I haven't seen or heard from anyone on a plan of action. A similar program launched in Boston in late 2020, and has since collected more than 2 million needles at a cost of about $440,000. But some New Yorkers scoff at the idea of paying drug users to properly dispose of their needles. Harlem mom, Keanu Santiago, says the city should just put out special kiosks instead.

So zero golf on the weekends, and I know Andy's busy, but look, and he's a super athlete. I think Andy has me right now. You know, something about that tennis forehand. He kind of can transfer that into his to his long iron game. I don't quite have that, but I like playing and Andy's been a great partner in this project. All right, paid Manning. Thanks so much. Thanks. Thanks a lot, guys. Thanks for having me. All right, and that was Peyton Manning in the drop zone, Sean. I have to say, I think my favorite part of his appearance was just how bought in he was too golf advice. It's going to be hard to honestly to top that appearance because Peyton has a really effective way of taking unserious things seriously. Which I think is something we value a lot. So I definitely appreciate it as contributions. How about that story of Tiger saying, hey Peyton, you're my teammate for the match? Yes. Come on over. Get your ass over to my place. No, not even get over. It's you don't have a choice. We'll be here. You're my teammate, you're going through my morning routine for this match, and we're gonna win, and they did win. But it's out of like Peyton was a little flabbergasted. Like, okay, I mean, I agreed to do this thing with Tiger Woods. I guess I have to do his morning routine. I had never heard that story before. I loved it. Loved it. We're hoping that we can see Peyton out at Augusta this week. Sean, where are we going to be on Tuesday night? Tuesday night. If you happen to be in Augusta Georgia and you happen to be a drop zone fan, you have no other obligations besides getting to the Savannah river brewing company. Tuesday by 8 p.m., not by 9 p.m..

"Piedmont, it's rolling hills and mixed pine hardwood forests and those ridges, if you want to call them that those hilltops, gray down into creek bottoms. So Chevy's creek where I learn to fish, dry creek, dry branch, turkey, creek, all of those places like that that then drain into many of them, Stevens creek, and then finally into the Savannah river that separates Georgia from South Carolina, it was and still is a very wild place, a growing up there were more deer and wild turkey in South Carolina than an edgefield then people in the county, so and that was at a time when people weren't seeing very many wild turkeys, and they weren't seeing, believe it or not, very many white tailed deer. But we had them in abundance. And so that nature of the county is part of what I fell in love with and am still in love with. And I think it gives, I think it gives the place a different sort of hope beyond its infamy as a place of really a bitter politic that that really people are even talking about today with Preston Brooks, who was from edgefield, that the man who beat Sumner over the head, Preston Brooks was from edgefield. So even today, when people talk about history, it often comes back to home. And so I have to reconcile the politics with the ecology and family to make it to have it be a place that I love in these ways and in quite honestly in some ways despise. Okay, well, I want to pick up on that again. I do want to, I am always interested in whoever I'm talking to about kind of the spiritual or religious background of a childhood. And when I read you, it feels like what you imbibe spiritually, both enriched and diverged from the way you are coming to make meaning in life. Would that be? Yes, yeah. It's a braided stream for sure. Okay. You know, it's so interesting as I'm talking to you that is becoming clear to me that was just all the way through. I mean, I tried to read as much as I could and including other interviews you've given and when you use this language about being an edge creature, you know, and where you grew up many different places meet, braided braided string. There's so much that you bring together in your imagination and your experience and your wisdom that comes together in your life and in your body. That our culture doesn't always bring together. At least overtly. So one place to kind of dive into that would be the different kinds of influences that you've talked about that form you and that you impart as a teacher, although Leopold and Marvin Gaye are Rachel Carson and Martin Luther King Jr.. So start us there. Let us be your students into this way of seeing the world walking into it. Well, Christa, I mean, for me, it imagination is kind of this frontier that never ends. I mean, if you're lucky, you get to always walk toward this horizon that's constantly moving away from you. So imagining my life and living and reimagining really the past I think about those people who have influenced me. The people that I knew, family, and Friends, and teachers, and schoolmates, but then people that I never knew personally that have had a pro, a profound impact on me, certainly Aldo Leopold is among them because I remember picking up his book a sand county almanac and my brother's room. And my brother's room was a place that you ventured into at great peril. This is a book from 1949. Yeah, from 1949 and I happened to see it on his desk and it had and there were these birds. These geese on the cover and it's become known as the goose head edition. But I saw it and I was like, what's my brother doing reading this? He was reading all sorts of stuff, but I didn't have any idea that he was interested in birds. And so I picked up this book and I just sort of flipped through it. I may have even stolen it for a day or two. And fell in love with the words. I fell in love with the illustrations that were there that were just these sketches. There was no color, but it was some of the most colorful reading some of the most colorful writing that I had ever seen in reading that I had ever done. So I sort of stored that in my memory banks because it's not like I begin to carry the book around then, but Leopold stuck. And some of that language stuck because I was living some of what he had written in terms of our family living off the land and seeing my father work so very hard to make a life for us. My mother and my father make a life for us off the land so Leopold stuck there in a way that wasn't evident to me really until lots of years later. Here's one way you just kind of summarize some of his admonitions that you kept with you to be one of those who can not live without wild things. Keep all the parts, listen to the mountain and preserve the integrity stability and beauty of the biotic community. That says it all, right? Yeah, it's amazing. You know, that if you can hoard, if you can sort of hoard experiences, which I think is part of what I do, along with books and other things. But if you can hoard experiences out there, then for me, that informs who I am. So seeing my father burn a piece of land to keep it productive or being out with him when he was cutting a tree and thinking about Leopold's good oak, and thinking about the annual rings in that tree as history and not just how the tree grew, then it helps me understand and sort of refined my place in the past, but also now, and hopefully my students, I asked them to write their own stories about the land, their own good oak, stories, sort of their own histories, and where they sit in the Pantheon. So that was important, but then I'm growing up with parents who were active in the civil rights movement..

They don't know enough to get out of the road. Run them over. They'll learn real fast. You know, I hit a chicken once when I was going down the highway. We had a chicken on the highway. I hit a chicken. I was going down route 24. Wow. And I'm driving 60 miles an hour easily. Yeah. And this chicken just walked out. There's nothing I can do. Why did the chicken cross the road? I don't know, but all I heard was, and I looked in my rearview mirror, and it was just feathers and stuff. And I felt bad. And I finally, I get to my destination. I looked at my grill, and it was all bloody. Feathers. You put the chicken right on the grill. Right on the grill. Get you? Yes, but the abreast of any further developments on that. And by the way, were you winging it with that story? Welcome to the beak leagues. You were feeling a little cocky that day. I think it was. Thank you just feeling a little foul. Oh, this foul play. Claw my way out of the car. So now, so I talk about Janet Wu. She's the reporter. I worked with her. We used to sing that song that steely danced on tour. Can you hear me, Janet Wu. You know that song? Yes, of course. Okay, now. I have a lot of other things to talk about. So should I? Or should I just wait till Bill E's on? No. What do you think? Let's get Bill Lee. Hey, spaceman. Yo. Mikey and Ben and Bill in the podcast in a live state of broadcast. How are you? A, B, did you just get back from Georgia? I am telling you, I don't know what I did and why I did it, but I wrote a poem I was on the plane and my wife convinced me to go to Savannah to try out. I was offered a one day tryout with the Savannah bananas that I did want to go. I was on the tarmac and it was snowing hard and playing with delayed. They had to de ice it and I wrote the fate of the hunter. We shorted out the electrical system while the icing the plane. Go figure. Now cancel this flight and send me home God damn it. Oh shit. They just dumped jump started the jet with a 98 Buick. And then I got down there. This is a poem? It's a poem. It doesn't rhyme. I know. Well, poems don't have to write. Yeah, you're right. It could be haiku. Just telling a story from your own words. Yes. Right. You know, kind of kind of like cat ballou, you know, with Lee Marvin, drunk on the horse. I remember that. Yeah. But it's like, so it's like haiku. They picked me up at the airport. The guy's a little late. I had to run through Delos by flight was delayed in dulles, so I got on it and made the connection, so I got down there and I had to run like O. J. Simpson through dulles, almost had a heart attack. And I'm going, I'm trying out for a team. I can't even run a quarter of a mile. So now I get down there and this guy and a yellow top hat and a yellow tuxedo with a cane comes marching in with a TV crew. I run get my bag. Take me to the hotel on the Savannah river. Was that mister peanut? Well, he's the owner, his name is Jesse Coley's from situate mass and he's the guy who sold his house, put together, started with about a 125 fans in Savannah and now he draws 10,000 a game. Wow. And he wants me to be part of this team and so what level what level of minor leagues is it? This is hot. I mean, this is top independent as it was. A lot of first round draft choices. I think the oldest guys about 27. The Savannah bananas. Well, okay, so you go down there and everybody's going, okay, there's got to be young guys there that don't even have any realization as to who Bill Lee is. Well, one of the kids I played with football against up here in Burlington, he made the team. He was playing on an independent team and Eugene. There were people playing on M and T teams all over the furthest guy away was from Germany. I think he made the tape. See, these guys are all pretty good ball players, but they wear skirts. It's the weirdest thing you'll ever see if you've never seen the Savannah banana baseball play. See, I come down the invites me down. He says, I said, I can't, I can't feel my position I go. He goes, well, we got no button in this Lake. And I said, well, that's a start. So there's no locks. And when there's no locks, I said, I throw strikes. I don't have to worry about butts. I said, you know, I may be able to do this. And we had 40 pitchers try out. I was the third pitcher and the object was to get as fast as outs you could in your part of it inning. So I'd go out and in four pitches, I, let's see, I got a one upper to first guy got him on assistant. Then I gave up a fly ball to left, the left handed hitter, then I gave up a base hit to left, and then I picked him off first base, two hours. Two minutes and four seconds. And half an inning. Half an inning and two minutes before. Now the record for any game, I think is 53 minutes in the history of baseball. I'm pretty sure they're like an old time Phillies game, but part of the problem with baseball is Bill. You know, this is at the speed of the game. They're pissed about it. So I love this game. You'll love it. It's just a different way of playing ball and I think we have 70 games scheduled for the season and they're all sold out for at least 7000 fans up to about 12,000 fans. And this is all in Savannah, Georgia, and they're called the Savannah bananas, and the yellow is obviously the team team color, right? Yeah, yeah. They got breakdancers as coaches. They run up and down the line. They do gymnastics, they jump over other players. They have all these skits. No innings. No, no game can be longer than two hours or have a starting time of two hours. Okay. You know, and then they have a shootout at the end where you put each team takes their picture, a catcher, and your fastest ball player, and you've got to beat them with one player. And you get as many bases as you can. And I won that too, so I actually, I want my last game in pro ball, the last Saturday, and at 75 years of age. That's great. Now all these young guys think about the fact that you're 75 and you can they were pretty impressed in maize, you know? And we got the top who's Yelich, we got remember yell at the place for yeah, Milwaukee. Yeah, Christian Yelich. Yeah, we got a guy that was drafted ahead of him for the brewers. And he's been playing independent ball. He's making a comeback. We've got people. Oh, we have a cop, a Savannah cop that catches with his uniform and his pistol. So this is really, I mean, that's entertainment. This is like globetrotters. Right, right. Exactly. The globe trotters. And it draws and it's.

"I'm very proud of it. It all started back with this program called the Georgia historic landscape initiative. That's a formal, isn't it? Anyway, that gosh, almost 20 years ago, 'cause we're coming up on 2022. I don't even know how that's possible. Back 2002. Under the direction of my mentor and a landscape architect, James our catharine, sadly, he's now deceased, and Susan Hitchcock of the National Park Service. Under their direction, a collaboration came together, the historic preservation division of the state office in Georgia, the garden called the Georgia, which is great group of women, and the National Park Service and the Cherokee garden library of the Atlanta history center. And we started this initiative, what we wanted to do was document doing inventory of all of Georgia's historic gardens. That was the plan, which is a kind of a big goal. I don't know what we were thinking, but we're all low crises. So we thought, oh, let's take this on. We were trying to figure out, how do we get started? Because Georgia has what a 159 counties is that right, Craig? That's correct. We are a big, long, wide, complicated state. We're like, how do we even begin on this? We thought for phase one, we'd use this old book called garden history of Georgia, 1733 to 1933. This work was published in 1933, but documents aren't all the way back to your forebears down the Savannah river area in 1733. To 1933, a group of students and volunteers mostly guarding club of Georgia volunteers spent years working on finding out what happened to these gardens that were listed in this book. So when we finished phase one, my co author, Marianne Edie, who worked for the historic preservation division, and she was actually a Professor of mine in grad school at Georgia state university. We both really felt strongly that we wanted to make this project the initiative better known by doing a book. We got together with our friend James Lockhart, who's an amazing photographer worked also for the state office for many years, doing all those National Register nomination photographs..

"Happiness. Now, to today's story. Our first story our writer carves off a key piece of the sprawling story of U.S. infrastructure. Will the president's signature Bill spur the regional compromise and cooperation needed to finally advance big project? 15 years ago, South Carolina state senator Tom Davis had an epiphany. He realized that a massive pile of river dredge in a crook of the Savannah river could become cornerstone of the state's economy. A $5 billion project called the Jasper ocean terminal was born. And then it stalled mired in bureaucracy and regional competition. Now, with kinks in the supply chain that have shipping containers stacked like Legos at U.S. ports, the Jasper ocean terminal may move forward. If neighbors, Georgia and South Carolina can cooperate. On Monday, president Joe Biden signed a $1.2 trillion infrastructure Bill, designed to unlock supply chain capacity and bring jobs to places like Jasper county, one of South Carolina's poorest. It is a promise of short and long-term investments experts say. Hewn and steel and wielding rods, bulldozers, and routers. But mister Biden's ambitious outlook also tugs at deeper American questions, including the country's capacity to think dream and do big. It won't be easy in today's toxic political climate. Well, there are federal dollars can help break planning log jams. Infrastructure experts say will be a longer term test of a new direction for American priorities. Why do we need infrastructure? Is a fundamental question we should be asking, says Manish shigeru car of the university of Colorado Denver.

"Hello and thank you for joining the american revolution this week. Episode to twenty assault on charleston. We return now to the southern theater that we last left in episode two thirteen in that episode. I discussed the battle of briar creek. Which place in march of seventeen seventy nine. It was a british victory but failed to leave the british in control of the georgia back country. The continentals took control of augusta. And the british remain hemmed in around savannah after the capture of savannah in late. Seventeen seventy eight. Colonel archibald campbell received appointment as military governor of the colony even while general. Augustine provos took control of the military forces at savannah campbell. Then returned to london leaving his lieutenant governor and general previous brother. Colonel mark prevost as the acting governor of the colony of georgia campbell returned returned to britain a hero and received a promotion to major general. He also got married and soon received an appointment as governor of jamaica. Aback in georgia though they situation was becoming dire the british strategy and georgia had been to take the colony with a relatively small force of a few thousand regulars then use that as a foothold to build an army of loyalists from the georgia and carolina backcountry and to use that army to invade south carolina. British strategists also hoped that georgia would provide a source of food for armies fighting on the islands in the west indies by capturing only a small area around savannah. Those plans never really came to fruition. There were potential loyalists living in the back country. Who might be persuaded to join an army. But after the british abandoned augusta many of these men had no faith that the british army could hold on to territory or that they would not cut and run if the continentals gave them too much of a fight. These men knew the consequences of joining up with the british. If the british did not remain in control they would be branded. Traders have their property confiscated become exiles or even be executed as a result. The number of local volunteers was minimal. Most men in the area who had not joined with the patriots simply kept their heads down and try to remain out of the contest until they had more confidence on which side was going to win. Following the battle of pryor creek the british garrison of nearly four thousand soldiers remained in and around savannah with a couple of outposts within a day's march of the city. The americans had initially concentrated the bulk of their forces at curry's berg a small town on the south carolina side of the savannah river about twenty miles up river from british occupied savannah following brier creek the continentals and militia under general. Benjamin lincoln's command totaled less than two thousand men. About half of what. The british had lincoln had expected militia from the southern states to rally to support especially now that they were being threatened with the clear and present danger of a british offensive from savannah the patriot militia from georgia and the carolinas turned out in disappointingly. Small numbers in april. A frustrated lincoln wrote to the continental congress.

"Hello and thank you for joining the american revolution this week episode to thirteen the battle of briar creek last week we looked at some of the british efforts to expand on the capture of savannah by sending an expedition to port royal island in south carolina and to set up a loyalist recruitment center in augusta georgia. The port royal expedition failed to secure the island and the british only remained in augusta for several weeks. Before withdrawing the british under colonel archibald campbell left augusta on february fourteenth. Seventeen seventy nine. The same day as the battle of kettle creek that i talked about last week. Campbell had already issued orders to withdraw the day before so the loss of kettle creek had nothing to do with his decision rather it had to do with the arrival of more patriot. Militia reinforcements at curry's bird. General benjamin lincoln had set up command at perry's berg which sat on the south carolina side of the savannah river between the main british force at savannah and campbell's outpost agosta. The british feared that the americans might cross the river to cut off and isolate the smaller contingent at augusta for several weeks. That was not a concern because the americans did not have enough men. General lincoln had about three hundred and fifty continental soldiers at perry's berg along with about a thousand militia from georgia and south carolina. The bulk of the militia. It was from south. Carolina and by all accounts was poorly organized. Lincoln was concerned about having to use them in battle. Also many of the south carolina militia refused to cross the border into georgia as they had with lincoln's predecessor. General robert how the south carolina militia officers refused to take orders from the continental commander continental. General william altri from south carolina himself wrote in one report that the south carolina militia work quote worst than nothing as a absolutely refused. General lincoln's orders. This situation changed on january. Twenty ninth when general linkin receive the first of his requested reinforcements more than eleven hundred north carolina militia under the command of general john ash lincoln ordered ash to join south carolina. General andrew williamson. Who had a smaller force of militia. Just across the savannah river from augusta. It was after ashes. Reinforcements appeared across the river from augusta. That british colonel campbell decided to evacuate the city. I mentioned andrew williamson back in episode one ninety one. When then colonel williamson had commanded the south carolina militia that participated in the effort with continental general robert how to invade british controlled east.

"They opened fire on the list attackers. Another forty patriots quickly crossed the river in canoes to supplement. The defense boyd was not really looking for an encounter at this time. It is possible that many of his men did not even have arms something they would receive once they reached augusta. There's also some evidence that many the loyalists under boyd's command had come under pressure to do so and we're looking for pretty much any opportunity to desert as a result. Boyd opted to avoid having to storm this block house and instead moved men to appoint about ten miles upstream where they could cross unimpeded into georgia after that. Colonel boyd rested easy. He was inside british lines. Only a few miles from the loyalist militia. Camp boyd awaited word from augusta about connecting his militia to the british regulars who were already there is army set up camp to rest from its long march near a small stream known as kettle creek. A boyd had not heard that campbell had decided to abandon and had put his men on the march back to savannah so his camp was more isolated than he knew. The patriots under pickens had not given up the chase pickens marshes patriot militia back across the savannah river into georgia. On the morning of february fourteenth pickens divided his patriots into three columns and attacked the loyalist camp under boyd. The lula's probably had close to twice as many men as attacking patriots. But they were taken by surprise. Boyd had failed to put out sufficient pickets or patrols to keep watch for any enemy. As i said. It's also possible that many of the loyalists still did not have muskets. Boyd quickly organized a defensive barrier where he and about a hundred of his men confronted the attackers while the bulk of his loyalists moved to higher ground in their rear. The defense was pretty effective with the battle. Raging for more than ninety minutes. Eventually the larger patriot force managed to outflank the loyalists line and forced the defenders to retreat back towards the main british. Line to the rear during this retreat. Colonel boyd received a mortal wound and would die later that evening. The patriots continued their assault up the heights against the main loyalist force. Boyd's second in command. Lieutenant colonel john moore was also killed or wounded. Third-in-command major william augusta spurgeon. Junior attempted to rally the loyalists but failed the terrified loyalist. Broken ran leaving behind their horses supplies. Intense fleeing into the swamps. The patriots overran their lines. In a complete rout the loyalists suffer between forty and seventy killed with another seventy five or so captured. Many.

"Through a couple of veterans groups. I got into fishing kayaking around the area and met up with an owner of a kayak shop that abortion. Just closed up your the kobe. But you know. We formed this community of veteran mostly kayakers and the area fire unofficial motto is. Just keep paddling. The second time. I went out kayaking with these guys. We went down to savannah. River down the rapids. I was freaked out all day long. They said it'd be fine. Just keep paddling. you'll be alright keypad. Chief paddle paddling keep back paddling. Just paddling just keep paddler paddling. Whatever direction. Brian either way when i lived in arkansas as a younger fella. There's not a lot in arkansas. I'm not a big fan of the state if i must admit so sardar consol listeners. Overstate people but we did have a lot of streams and rivers there to go tubing or canoeing on. And we'd go and i remember. Gosh i may have been sixteen at the time. We went on a kayak trip. And it was me and my dad or canoe trip and We overturned we overturned in the paddle was floating away. So i grabbed the paddle and i went to pull it. We were kind of in a light rapid and pull the paddle underwater. And i kept pulling and it popped out of the water and baseball swing. Hit my dad's square in the head. He was angry. But i didn't intend to. So that's my kayaking slash canoeing down the river. I kept paddling right into my fifty paddling. Right yes right. So my question is how do you get around the fact that kayaks have a shortage of cup holders. That's the biggest thing that keeps me from trying kayaking. As i got no place to put my beer of the modern ones have a couple or do they really especially the fishing one. If you don't have the cupholder there's usually a pot in the front you can throw a couple of prowlers probably not crawlers. You guys but a couple of bombers or something bryant short term memory like two weeks ago we went and cabela's and they had a pretty trick dot kayak there had the cup holders and stuff on it and he'd forgotten about that. I did and also i saw an opportunity for a bad jokes. Okay see how bad the joke was. Do track over the ago. We don't so what was what's the paddle of come from in the name. So the kayaking.

"40. Ryan through to the dark secret place live everywhere on the I heart radio app and lost lost in all of the nuclear Armageddon. Talk about you know, Iranian nuclear future or North Korea or whatever. Is going back to the beginning of things. How are some decisions made because no one knew exactly in May of 1945. No one knew exactly how the bomb really would operate. They had theories. And but someone had to pick the targets and think of the culture and think about the employment, the bomb and then the aftermath of the bomb. Let's get back to that. That memo very obscure Memo from the Manhattan Project 1945, the official German surrender, Woz May 8 on our calendar May 9th and the Russian calendar. Of 1945, So the use of atomic bomb to force a Nazi surrender was rendered mood. There have long been theories that we never work in and drop it on Europe anyway. On by and large by the way. Those are accurate because the employment of an atomic weapon on mainland Europe, with the Russians advancing on Berlin. Due to use an atomic weapon on on Berlin and it brought with it. Ah lot more complications. Then we wanted to deal with not only the fact that it was would have required that the bomb be, which was called the gadget by the way in the Manhattan Project, No one ever said Bomb Andre didn't even use Ignat nicknames, Little boy and Fat Man unless it was an official secret communications. They just referred to it as the gadget. So the same theory of dropping the gadget on a industrial town. As a demonstration was, it was still on the table for Germany. But thing is the defeat of Germany happened far more rapidly than the defeat of Japan. Um, And the other thing that was that was crystal clear. As we got closer to the Japanese mainland was that the conventional Uh, conflicts were getting Maura and more and more deadly per square mile Iwo Jima. In 1944 was a absolute wake up call after other wake up calls Okinawa in February. 1945. Okinawa, of course, was a Japanese province. It wasn't some outlying island. Okinawa was a province with Japanese civilians and the Japanese fought like devils. On. They did not give up Okinawa easily and it became clear to Truman. By March of 1945 that if this is how the Japanese fought as we got closer to their homeland than the invasion of the Japanese mainland was going to be the bloodiest battle in American history by Dad was on Okinawa. My dad was a navy Korman. On Okinawa, and he was a personal eyewitness to the to the horror of how the Japanese mistreated their own civilians, forcing them to commit suicide attacks. Also brainwashing them into thinking that we were there to murder. All the Children of the whole thing. Japanese civilians were jumping off volcanic cliffs. It was just a complete horror show. And when that was passed on to Truman, Um, Andre and Truman, of course, learned about the atomic bomb. He understood. We need this thing ready to go before we plan on before we ever invade. The Japanese mainland. We have to try this thing out. And if they don't surrender, if if what they say is true, and they don't surrender, then there's something really wrong and we got to invade that homeland. So Robert Oppenheimer. Of course, you know the physicist who was in charge of the the research and development of the gadget in the Manhattan Project. General Leslie Groves, the engineer corps guy was the overall commander of the big picture of the military side. The military application side. All the resource is that the Manhattan Project all the funding Of the Manhattan project called for and with all the thousands of PhDs and highly educated people who found their way to to Richland, Washington on Savannah River. Uh, Oakridge, Tennessee, Alamogordo, New Mexico and all that. It's interesting how, because no one had ever done it before. Never never had the weapon. It's interesting how they had to come together in committees. And come up with doctrine on how to use a weapon that had never been even tested. Remember the atomic bomb. The first atomic bomb was detonated on a tower in July. I'm sorry I'm late. Late. No. In July of 1945. That was the first actual proof of concept of the design. Of the fat man would work. And that you could actually cause a nuclear explosion by encasing a ball of plutonium in a outer core of explosives that would implode and crush it. So it wasn't until that was actually done, that anyone even knew that the thing would work even before they tested it, though they got together, and they said all right, because so much modeling had been done with elbow grease and slide rules. They had a 99% assurance The design was sound and that the physics were sound that you could actually create nuclear fission with conventional explosives, and the resulting explosion would be the equivalent of tons and tons and tons. Of TNT. So on 10 and 11 may 1945 summary of targeting committee meetings, the second meeting of the Target committee convened at 9 A.m., 10 May and Dr Oppenheimer's office. Site. Why, with the following presence, and then there are three partly there's four military officers, a general general Forell, a colonel, a captain and a major. And then the balance. The other nine are all physicists, physicists and weather experts on de engineers. None of them were cultural experts on Japanese society or anything like that. What were they there to determine? Well, how high is the bomb going to be triggered? What happens if we if we don't drop it, and we have to jettison it over the ocean on things like that? What about the psychology of the weapon? I'll tell you about what they decided on here in just a second. This this declassified document. Was top secret 1945 giving us some insight into what very, very smart people theorized would happen when the nuclear bomb atomic bomb was dropped. It is the dark secret place Brian suits back right after this case, If I am 6 40 live everywhere on the IR radio up plaudits defending with the news.

Tybee Bomb lost - February 5, 1958
"The day was February. Fifth Nineteen fifty eight the US air force lost a nuclear bomb in the waters near Taibbi island off the coast of Georgia though fake news stories claiming that the bomb had been found have emerged. The bomb is considered lost that day. A. B. Forty-seven bomber under the command of Major Howard. Richardson was flying a simulated combat mission from Homestead Air Force Base in Florida. The plane was carrying a mark. Fifteen thermonuclear no nuclear bomb. That weighed more than seven thousand pounds to make the simulation more realistic. The bomb contained four hundred pounds of high explosives as well as enriched uranium and other nuclear material. The bomb may have had a plutonium nuclear core or it may have had demi core installed if it did its nuclear capsule. An explosion could cause serious damage in injury for miles early that morning before. Sunrise and F eighty six expire jet out of Charleston accidentally collided with Richardson's be forty seven and the fighter jets pilot. Lieutenant Clarence Stewart did not see the bomber on his radar. The left-wing ripped off of the F eighty six and the B forty seven fuel tanks. Were badly damaged. Stewart ejected from the fighter and and landed in the Savannah River swamp though he survived the landing he was severely frost in the F. Eighty six landed in a field in Georgia as Richardson attempted to regain control of the B. Forty seven he requested an emergency landing at Hunter Air Force Base in Savannah but the runway was under repair ear. Richardson did not want the bomb to break loose on an emergency landing and he wanted the cruise to survive so he decided to let go of the Bob over the ocean it before landing at Hunter there was no explosion when the bomb entered the ocean. Just off Taibbi Island and they landed safely at hunter for his his efforts. Richardson got the Distinguished Flying Cross. A decoration awarded to officers when they show heroism or extraordinary achievement during flight. The navy searched the loss bom for two months but could not find it. Officials believe it's buried under silt at West. I'll obey off Taibbi in a letter. The Assistant Assistant Secretary of Defense wrote to a congressional committee in Nineteen Sixty six. The TAIBBI bomb was identified as a quote complete weapon but the air force maintained that the bomb did not have a nuclear capsule and is not considered dangerous. It also said that starting a search for the bomb would have unwanted effects on the environment virement and could be risky considering explosives in the bomb. They suggested that it's best left undisturbed.
