The Institute of Illegal Images
"According to mark mcleod the origins of blotter art come from the criminalization of lsd. Lsd was originally distributed at liquid before becoming illegal in all fifty states after nineteen sixty. Six underground drug dealers. Started using something called blotter sheets. They dip these paper sheets and lsd and let them dry then they cut it up and sell it that way pretty soon. They were printing artwork onto these blotter sheets and eventually artists were designing images specifically for the broader sheets. They were fun. Little codes clues as to where the blotter might have come from and who might have made it. And it's all this blotter. Art mark mcleod collects and displays in the blotter barn.

The Story Behind James Taylor's Fire and Rain
"Doing the research for some of these shows one of the things. I bump up against a lot of weird rumors regarding the meaning behind the songs. And one of the biggest to james taylor's first big single fire and rain specifically the story that the song chronicles his reaction to the death of his girlfriend in a plane crash. So let's get out of the way immediately. No well not really okay. That was a little harsh. Let me roll myself back a little bit. The song was written in three stages each of them related to a specific event in his life. So let's take them averse at a time. Taylor was working the local coffee houses and clubs and so forth in new york city in the late. One thousand nine hundred sixties and he had a friend by the name of suzanne schnur who everyone. It's seems called. Susie now taylor said that they used to hang out together and they used to get high together but also said he thinks she came from long island which is not what you say about girlfriend material but were good friends. And that's a fact in one thousand nine hundred sixty eight taylor landed a contract with apple records to record his debut album which means he was off to london to do some recording. Now taylor had three roommates that he left behind a new york. All of whom were also close too suzy's and it was while he was in london that suzanne committed suicide. Now i did see a reference to interview. Taylor did with a british magazine called petticoat which susie committed suicide. Because you've been put into an election. Sal and couldn't handle it but unfortunately i couldn't dig up the primary source and all the internet based sources they basically point to one another so i couldn't really determine if that part of it is true at any rate the roommates all knew about it but they didn't tell taylor because they didn't want to shake him up while he was working on this record as a result he didn't learn the news until he got back to new york and she had been dead for about six months

"Hundred sixteen thousand new jobs in this economy in march restaurants and hotels education construction manufacturing. Honestly i could just go on naming industries. They have all added jobs. We're down to an unemployment rate of six percent even and that is with a whole bunch of people getting back into the labor force so marketplace's mitchell hartman gets us going with the goods of this very good jobs. Report positive comments were a dime. A dozen as i did. My economist calls today starting with nicole. Golden at the atlantic council definitely signs of a boom. Very happy to see it. What's michael farren at the mercatus center pumped up. Is the trajectory. Two hundred and thirty. Three thousand jobs added in january than four hundred sixty eight thousand in february and doubling again to more than nine hundred thousand in march. You think marches number is high april. And may's numbers are going to be positively eye-popping as larger and larger proportions of the population are vaccinated and more of the economy reopens the breadth of job growth. Is what impressed kurt. Long at the national association of federally insured credit unions not just hard hit bars and restaurants but retail transportation. The building trades finance. A lot of businesses are looking ahead to really strong consumer demand and they don't want to be caught flat-footed without the necessary employees. Getting everyone back to work especially unemployed. Parents will require more rebound in services for those workers says nicole golden at the atlantic council. We need childcare to come back because it employs a lot of women and in particular minority women and because the burden of care and school closures have pushed so many millions of women out of the labor force. Childcare jobs are still fifteen percent below pre pandemic
How Do Belly Buttons Work?
"Do you think the reason that you have in any or an outy. Bellybutton has something to do with the way that your milk cord was cut and tied when you were born. Come on be honest. The persistence of the any. Audi meth is exhibit a. But we don't know jack about our belly buttons your belly. Button is indeed the leftover remnant of what was once the umbilical cord The rope light connection between you and your birth parent which supplied all of your nutrients and oxygen when you were in the womb. When you were born someone helping with the birth likely cut. The bulk corridor a couple of inches. Away from your belly and clamped off the remaining section. There's no tying involved once it's clamped the small section of umbilical cord dries up and falls off in about a week. A what's left is the umbilical commonly known as the belly button and the shape and size of the bellybutton depends entirely on the way to your skin. Heels after the cord falls off. If you have an audi it's likely due to a mild umbilical hernia or slide infection at the site. Roughly ninety percent of people have any and it's a jungle in there according to eat delightfully odd scientific initiative called the belly button diversity project belly. Buttons are home to a startling diversity of bacteria. The project started back in twenty eleven at north carolina state university when a team of young researchers got the idea to explore the microbiome of the belly. Button a with the bacteria colony is the naval be different from those found on the rest of the body. Using our na sequencing the researchers identified two thousand three hundred and sixty eight different species of bacteria living in the navels of sixty volunteers for reference. There are only half as many species of birds or aunts in north america.

Come your three favorite things about school today and it's up in. Why'd you like it up up and it's more than just like. How was your day fine? How'd you see Great Jeb? Yes like. The one answer stuff that you get from little kids. So that's to me is the there's no one day of it, but like so okay, so they don't have the days where I work that rush of like dinner bath dead with a two year old, and then the fight seven year. Sometimes they want to take a bath together. Sometimes they don't and figuring out what they wanna do that night and what they want to eat. That's the stuff for some. When I get it done and get everybody and get out of their rooms by eight to eight thirty. Thirty that's when I'm. Pat Myself on the back like dead Hercules, Krousar all right, so let's go back to the beginning with Jack here. What is the memory that you had on delivery day? When Jack was about to us into this, World Jackson born on born on Valentine's Day and we went in. He was a weekly and Shannon was. My wife was going to be induced because he was taking so long as getting so big so I remember sleeping on the couch. We were there from the morning of Valentine's Day and then he was born the next morning. Morning so they induce labor and I mean it was like a twenty four hour is born a few minutes after ten in the morning they come in and tell us both to try to sleep on a cot next to her, and they would say yeah. Try to get some restaurants, but they had that fetal monitor band across her stomach, and every time she would move. The band would invariably lose contact with the baby and set off the alarm I can still hear that alarm like when I'm really tired. I can still hear that alarm at my head where. where it was sort of like a welcome to the next eighteen years, rest of your life like this is how you're going to sleep. Business is how your sleep is going to go that indoctrination ensue it now. That was GONNA go. I also remember like being more involved in the actual moments of delivery than I expected because it was like all right dad here he comes I was like okay right and then they say grab a leg, and I was like and they and not the baby at all. There was not a breach, not breach. But like help us, you know, but a nurse was going to hold up one of my wife's legs and I was GonNa hold the other leg and like. Real and. You you. All of us know that you see things that you can't unsee. In that moment, but I also remember. Crying like. So hard and so happily that like you know this guy that. We've been waiting on for ten because it is almost ten months like it's like it was a forty forty one week pregnancy, so it's about ten miles as they nine months ten months. You wait that long, but also like I've been telling dad jokes since I was a teenager so I I was ready to be a dad for a really long time. And you know having that official human certificate of like one of your dreams coming true I mean by lost it I. I could get emotional about it now. Speaking of scary now on hoping we can lean towards the. The funny here when I say serious moment as a parent I'm praying that you don't have any genuinely scary moments now all share one with you to give you an idea of what I'm talking about. My daughter's to like a year ago. When she first started walking, we were at some fast food restaurants. Some Wendy's McDonalds something along those lines and my wife and I were kind of ordering, and it was just like a split second where we both whipped our head around were like wait you have it. Where is she and then like three seconds later she emerges. Emerges from behind some pillar, but there's just that three seconds of panic or we're like. I'm be lining out the door. My wife is about to get on a table and start. Where's my kids to like like just stuff that? In hindsight, it was funny when I say like scariest moment, the avenue thing the first one was when Ryan was born in twenty seventeen, I think my two older kids, Emma and Jack to the Children's Science Museum in Boston and there's a climbing structure. It's like a series of tubes nets, and it goes like Florida's ceiling like five. Five stories and you can put your child in there, and they can climb up in climb back down and you're and I i. Put Jack In there I. Put them in. Their Emma went up. A little bit came back down. Jack stated it was crowded. It was summertime I'm walking with Emma keeping an eye on the entrance and the exit to this climbing thing and I see Jack. Come out and walking over to him. She can't see me and he loses. It right away has diagnosed himself as lost never to be found again, so he takes off and might. PICK HIM UP. And now I'm trying to weave through these crowds keeping an eye on my son who's running away looking for help looking for me, but looking for help, and so he running luckily like who museum workers was like. I can't sign my dad, and I'm like all of my like that I could still feel how that hit me. I'm like fifteen paces behind him, but I've got eyes on him the whole way, so he still calls that today that he was lost, even though he was never lost and I could see. And then. And then the other, the other scary was actually my oldest born. We couldn't like. Hold him right away because he wasn't breathing well right away. He had come so quickly that he wasn't I guess contractions also serve a purpose in addition to just being like painful, they actually like squeeze the baby and kind of wake them up and get them ready to be in an environment. They're not use sue in. He came out so quickly that he was. They had to get the fluid out of later like Suction Cup the fluid and all that stuff. They took him up to the Nikki like right away and after two babies. Where you have the dream of like. Hey, here she is here and you hold them and you get to nuzzle skin-to-skin. Everything's great right away. It was such a weird, scary terrifying feeling to hear.
"sixty eight" Discussed on Climate 2020
"Hey Jeff we're going to talk to a felony motto Mildenberger. Now he's He's a professor at the University of California at Santa Barbara. And you know he's he's an interesting guy. He's got a lot to say about about candidates and where they stand on climate change. He's a political scientist. He also has a really interesting new. Study out about solar panels else and whether Republicans or Democrats are more likely to have solar panels on their homes and and his findings are are pretty interesting. You looked at at people who have installed solar panels in their homes to see if it makes any difference in terms of their political behavior. Whether or not they have solar solar panels on the roof that right exactly. That's right so one way to think about this is we're able to answer the question. Imagine that you you find yourself in some some neighborhood any random neighborhood in the United States and you're standing in front of a house that has some solar panels on it. What can you know about the ideology about the political behavior of the people who actually live in that house? What we find is really interesting? We find that there is no real partisan gap we find that Democrats and Republicans are equally likely to be installing solar panels on their homes overall across the entire country. There are a few more Democrats than Republicans who have solar but that's entirely function of the fact that solar solar is concentrated in states and locations. That have more Democrats living in them like California but within a neighborhood knowing if someone is Republican or Democrat. Crat doesn't actually tell you anything about whether they have solar not. Okay so what does it tell you. What does it tell you about their behavior if they do have a solar whether Republican or Democrat if they have solar panels on the roof roof? It tells you that they're much more likely to participate in. This is true in both the Democratic and Republican primaries as well as in general elections so we find that that households with solar panels are about ten percentage points more likely to be active political participants in elections which is a really substantial angel gap and while part of that gap can be explained by a household level demographics for instance household income. We can't explain plane all of that variation chest by these demographics and so it really does seem like the types of people who are politically active are also the types of people adopting solar and that it suggests that there is a late into a coalition of Republicans and Democrats across the country. That are already out there who who might be mobilized level is to protect the clean energy wins. That have already happened or could support a sort of a deepening of the energy transition. Just to be clear. You're not saying that the act of putting a solar solar panel on your roof makes you more likely to be politically active. You're saying that whatever it is the causes people to be politically active also Inclines them to to put solar panels on the roof is that is that right. Yeah I mean the the study that we did right now. Chest tells us that there's a close association between the two behaviors. We're going to do some follow. Follow up work right now to understand if in how the act of adopting solar may be shifting your opinions and your preferences and your attitudes over time and so I. I think that's a really interesting question that our research raises and that sort of the next step mayor Pete. We understand is surging in the in the Iowa. Polls how how would you compare his climate plan to the plans. That other candidates have put forward. It has some important differences in approach approach and to for instance the Sanders or Warren plans. But it also has a few interesting strength that Buddha judge plans really leans into that some of the other plans are more vague about it. So I think there's a few ways to contrast them so unlike the green new you deal Plans that both Sanders and Warren have really promoted that have a strong focus. On linking the problems of inequality inequality with climate reforms mayor. Buddha judge has a climate plan that is very focused on the climate crisis as a standalone issue. You and is not trying to make links between climate reforms and other types of social and economic policy making. I think that there's a lot of things that are really interesting about it. I think it has a reasonably ambitious energy. Target renewable energy target with this interim target for twenty twenty-five it has one of the more developed plans to really think creatively about what technologies we need to invest in to innovate. You know this is a plan that talks about technology. Direct air capture to actually remove carbon from the atmosphere which is quite necessary. This is also a plan that has a fully realized carbon price in it It's a proposed as a carbon price and dividend policy where Americans will receive the revenues from a carbon price back as rebates. But here's my question for you. How in the world at a time? When the Democratic voters are saying more and more more more climate change does Mir p differentiate himself from the rest of the field when his plants are considerably smaller at least dollar wise than the rest of the field? I guess I think that his plan is quite ambitious and a bunch of dimensions. I think that where where it lags behind. Some of the other candidates is it doesn't appear to have as much money for deployment. It doesn't imagine the same degree of wide-scale spending and investment in decarbonisation. And I think that that type of really aggressive spending and really aggressive government investment other candidates have argued is critical if we're going to meet the climate science targets that we need to meet and so I think that as Buddha judge rises in the polls. He's going to need to do more to communicate how his plan is responding to the scale of the climate crisis and really offering bring a solution to the climate problem that that meets the climate science where it is and provide a credible pathway to keep the global climate stable. But I do think that there's lots of interesting components that the plan and it's a serious plan. It's a window dressing plan that we've seen from from some of the other candidates and you know. I thought for a while though that the difference among the candidates on climate change isn't so much the the specific details they put in their plants but the priority that the assigned to the issue. So that you know the question in my mind has been which of these candidates is going to make climate front and center issue if he or she is elected in November twenty twenty. I think it's a really good question. And I think Eh to answer the question we also have to think about who has a realistic and practical plan for how to actually pass the type of legislation and regulations. That are GONNA be necessary. I'm having a great plan. Is One thing and another thing is who actually has the strategy necessary in the tactics necessary to to get something done. I actually put a lot of stock in who is willing to embrace a phase out of the filibuster. I think that that's not who else. Yeah well among the major ones Warren Also Montana Governor Steve Bullock is willing to do it and of the of the major candidates most are hedging or saying they'll explore it it certainly mayor. Buddha judge said that he'd be open up into thinking about it sanders has been surprisingly resistant to the idea for reasons that I don't entirely understand but I think that to pass a major climate reform package in the Senate will almost certainly require removing the filibuster.

"Carlos Cabello former Congressman representing presenting Florida's twenty sixth district from two thousand fifteen to two thousand nineteen co-founder of Cerro Communications and public relations firm. And and a distinguished visiting fellow at Columbia's Center on Global Energy Policy. I have to say that I'm I'm sorry. You lost in November. It must be intriguing to think about what it would be like for yourself to be in the in the congress at this point as a Republican. Well it it would be a very difficult gold position. I think you've seen just in the last few weeks that Republicans seem to have two options politically at least a the moral questions assigned but politically Republicans have the option of defending the president and of course he demands ends absolute loyalty or leaving the Party and that's a decision that Justin Amash had to make a few weeks back So it's a difficult perfect time to be in politics in our country. I think it's a very difficult time to be a Republican in Congress. Congress this is Jeff says but I just wanted to jump in for just a second Great to talk to you. I'm just curious about your take about younger Republican voters. Because I know you've seen the same polls that we've all seen younger. Republican voters care care quite a lot about climate change and they feel like the parties in the wrong place in the issue. How does the Republican Party deal with this? Because if they don't I'm afraid this may be a signature issue that it causes irreparable harm to the party. Certainly and yes. All Young voters pretty much cared deeply about this issue and and young Republicans are not an exception and the good news is that Republicans in Congress are starting to wake up to this reality so I tell people that. I'm feeling optimistic these days because I have the perspective of having arrived in Congress and Having found almost no republicans willing to engage on this issue by the time I left Congress at the beginning of this year we had forty forty five house. Republicans on the record having joined the climate solutions caucus so we really became a force and fast forward into today some ten months into the House Democratic majority and you have senior Republicans in the house talking about climate change. And just just a few weeks ago. Kevin McCarthy the House Republican leaders. Someone who while I was in Congress never never went out of his way to address or discuss this issue stated stated that because young voters care about this issue that House Republicans would be crafting package of bills to address climate. I changed you know. There's no question that what you're telling us. This is recent for hope on this issue but it's also true that as we're seeing on a daily basis your party. The Republican Party is very much under the thumb of Donald J trump. And as far as I know he's never changed his opinion. The climate a change is a Chinese hoax designed to undermine American industrial strength. So what basis do we have to be hopeful about the trajectory of the Republican Party on the climate issue when trump is so determined to keep it off the radar screen off the table. Well the fact that this is all happening wild. Donald trump is president president. Someone who has been reckless irresponsible. Not just in In his rhetoric but in his policies when it comes to climate and the environment and the fact that Republicans are taking these steps making these declarations Senate Republicans Senator Mike Braun has led a small group of Senate Senate Republicans joining Democrats to form. The first ever bipartisan caucus designed to address climate change in the United States Senate. All of this is happening while Donald Trump keeps tweeting out the same nonsense so it's obvious obvious that Republicans understand that they have delete on this issue and that they're willing to in a way confront the president by countering his rhetoric and his policies With these latest moves to build the bipartisan artisan consensus. That's necessary for meaningful climate action. Is it possible that you know the Republican Party will ever actually at least some aspect of the Republican Party swinging behind a carbon in price. So like I tell people. We don't really need Republicans to embrace or to be enthusiastic about pricing carbon. We'd seen enough Republicans not even all not really even half of them to accept a price on carbon as a broader policy solutions a a lot of Republicans are congregating around the idea of massive investments in research and development To try to trigger the types of technical advancements that could help solve for climate change perhaps in a less costly win away that involves less sacrifice in terms of a modifying Our economy and our habits I think a lot of Democrats would be willing to support a massive Manhattan Project Type Initiative to address this issue and perhaps that can be accompanied by a modest price on carbon. Can I just say congressman. How excited I think lots of people in this country would be for that approach that you just laid out? We just released poll Georgia. That shows overwhelming support. Like three quarters of the people would love to see innovation around renewable energy. If the the Republican Party were willing to entertain that notion I agree and I can't predict the future but I can tell you that the current is pushing people in that direction..

"Hi and welcome to climate twenty twenty podcast about climate change twenty twenty election. I'm David Gelber of the Climate Media Company Years Project and I'm Jeff Nesbitt. I founded climate nexus a climate communications group or guest this week. Our former Republican Congressman Carlos Cabello and political science science professor Matto Mildenberger but First Jeff. It seems that Mayor Pete is surging in the polls in in Iowa. Way certainly surging in the polls in Iowa I think it's still an open question. How do in New Hampshire and South Carolina specially South Carolina because he's still struggling with black voters but in Iowa Yeah? He's the clear front runner at this point. The the the other three are seven eight points behind him. Interestingly Sanders yeah this this week well I think you know. We'll see how long that lasts last. But you know Bernie. Sanders rocked the state with his His climate debates with with ABC and others this past week he got lots and lots of folks out out there on the climate issue. So there's a long time between now and and the Iowa caucus but for right now Mayor Pete seems to be the the alternative up to the the sanders warned. Wing of the Party. You know we're going to ask a professor mildenberger About Buddha judge and how is how is climate plan stacks up against some of the other candidates relates. Do you have a sense of that about about where booty judges climate policy as well my views. It's it's it's tough for some of these candidates even like Buddha jets to distinguish between Bernie Sanders plan which is in the sixteen trillion dollar range and some of the others that are in the multi trillion dollar range. I think the the the candidate who's who's done the best job of differentiating herself from the rest of the Field Elizabeth Warren I. I had a chance to talk to her new climate policy director last week at length about this and she's really taken Jane's was planned and integrated into her campaign in a way that that sets apart from the others. I think Buddha judge is going to struggle to to to describe to people wise. My climate energy plan different than than other folks. I think he'd like to and if he's going to be the moderate alternative He's going to have to figure out a way to address address this issue in a way that satisfies a big chunk of the Democratic Party. I said most. Most voters don't really understand what the differences are between one candidate in another candidate at the stage of the game it's trillion dollars trillion dollars there. So tell me more about what Elizabeth Warren just doing to differentiate herself. She's got to walk a very careful path. which is to look a lot like the green new deal candidate Bernie Sanders clearly as Bernie? Sanders is all in the green new deal. I mean all in he he talks about it constantly nonstop Elizabeth Warren needs to set herself apart from Sanders on the Progressive Wing of the party. On this issue. You but not be the same all in green new deal candidate. How do that well? That's that's what the wrestling with right. Now it's a fascinating dilemma. For so the way she's doing right now is to take individual individual parts of her economic plan and show how they apply to the climate issue so to to basically take an others have done this as well. How Jay if chancellor were on the race he would be he was talking about something that looks just like a green new deal? Ten years ago ten fifteen years ago he called it the Apollo project others were talking about at this. So That's what Elizabeth Warren will take individual pieces of the talk about jobs and economic opportunity and environmental justice and An inequity and take her bent on this race and apply it to the elements of green new deal. That's what she's going to try to pull off. So Hey Jeff I hear that Climate next is your organization and George Mason University City Did a a poll Georgia which had some very surprising results. Tell us about it. So we've been releasing polls in every state prior to the Democratic presidential debates to show just how much interest there is in the climate and energy issue in those states and sure enough in Georgia like two thirds of the voters would love to see more discussion of renewable energy. And I'll tell you there's A. There's another interesting development this week as well Bill Gates has funded a big new venture That came out of stealth mode this week. uses concentrated solar power to heat up a a single point to about a quarter the heat that you'd find on the surface of the sun and the technology uses artificial intelligence in order to concentrate that solar power. If this proves out it is really an interesting trink interesting concept both for concentrated solar power but potentially even the creation of green hydrogen which could be used to power airplanes and other things. So I want to know what is this house. My life can be different if I'm still around in ten fifteen years because out. Yeah I mean a couple of ways first of all You might oh you know the cement and the steel that goes in all sorts of products will be potentially cheaper and and Carbon free. So you'll be saving the environment while you have cheaper goods and services. You might be flying in an airplane that had that's fueled by green hydrogen which which would be carbon free as well and cheaper so your ticket cost less Your car could cost less the billing. Were you living in could cost less and it will help the environment and help solve the climate problems. So you get all of those benefits. Can't wait.

One child did not was instantly decapitate who's that ten year old kid, which is, I mean beyond the pale of just horrified nece really fucked up. Yeah, and actually this week or is sometime recently. One of the, the guy who designed the ride was in. Guided by grand jury charged with literal murder. They are the already, you know, it's a big mess. It's a big mess that the water parks, even the ones not related to the Kansas City. One are all under bankruptcy because they had to mortgage them against each other. So there's a lot going on with the slur bond thing, but it is awesome. My girlfriend loves water parks. I'm told by her and she would love to scout this one before her nieces and nephews come down. Oh, says. We. Going litter mon-. Let's let's fuck and go to now the the beautiful thing about schlitterbahn. I don't think I've ever talked about it on our VP before, but it it certainly something that I have a lot of pins about. And what about first of all, very, very, very fun. You guys are gonna have a blast super jealous, especially when it's hottest shit outside schlitterbahn, incredible. All you do is dip dots all day and go down fun rides. And the the the disgusting part of should've on is, of course the people. Because you're, you know, you're talking about the biggest and best waterpark on earth. What are you a water park? You were bathing suit, and and human beings in bathing suits are largely disgusting in Texas. We have a lot of large people. We got a lot of people. Yeah, bond just for those who don't know is is in new braunfels which is about thirty miles north of San Antonio, fifty miles south of Austin, Santoni being one of if not the fattest city in America consistently.

Yeah, I think I've been twice. I remember went once a child. We went like a big family trip when I was a small child because I remember the car. My dad drove he was driving. Toy Honda Accord, I think this is a small car before, like the family had grown big enough to have, you know, a larger vehicle minivan. So we remember we took his car and he got robbed, and he always talked about how he thought it was an inside joke job, and he called it shitter Bon years to come. I think he still does because of the one time he got rob, which is fair. I, you get a hold that against them. But then I, I went one other time in my youth, but I've not been in in ten or fifteen years. It's a magical place. It's a disgusting, terrible magical place. And you know what it would be. That's the one park that I would do a sponsorship for on the show if they wanted to become the official waterpark of our VP. That would be the funniest thing in the world to me. And I would gladly talk about schlitterbahn on a by weekly basis, but it's just anywhere you get that many people around together in the sun in bathing suits, sweaty, wet nipples exposed guts, hanging out. The you're gonna be grossed out to some degree plus children in the kids screaming, children, they're sick..

Well, let's let's say speaking of rap next segment, Houston rap album of the week guy. We've never done this before either. The wheels are coming off today. Wow, wow, Travis Scott finally dropped Astra world last night. It is the album's here. It's time to party. Do the rest of the fucking summer for those of you who are totally uneducated. Astra world was the name of a six flags amusement park in Houston when Travis Scott and I were growing up in the Houston streets, very fun plays roller coasters water rides, so hundred forty degrees outside all the time and Astra world, and it was. It was awesome. So the albums titled Astra world is seventeen songs features. The likes of Frank ocean, Drake, sway lead, UC J James, Blake. AAC, Stevie Wonder on the harmonica, John Mayer. I soon playing guitar Cueva quavo quavo takeoff beastie boys sample. I've listened to the a couple of times through now, and this is definitely a step forward for Travis creatively, but I, I would argue he didn't do anything too drastic or change course too much from the last time we got a full album from him, and sometimes that's fine. You don't have to force radical change in style if you're not ready or you're not feeling it yet that saying, if ain't broke, don't fix it has never applied more than applies in. Travis Scott's current musical career when you're killing it. If you're not feeling something else, she had just keep rolling what you've got. And that's, I think that's pretty much what he did here. He kind of took it up to another level production-wise and it's it's pretty. You know, the feel. The vibe you get as you as you jam Astra world. It kinda works all the way through the album until the final song is the one that doesn't really fit in and it's not supposed to, but all in all, I've been very happy with it so far to listens in, it's always it's, it's healing probably get credited enough as a Houston rapper as I've discussed before when I think we did one song from him as a Houston rap song of the week, but he's a Houston guy. He grew up in most cities e- certainly Houston rapper, and it's nice that we've got somebody still on on top of their game in the national and international spotlight representing for the city. And that man right now is Travis Scott, maybe more so than anyone else ever has from Houston. He certainly more famous than than any of the dudes were back in the day. Like Mike Jones, chameleon air, Paul, that crew, he's already past all those dudes international fame wise yet the fact that he's not known as a Houston. Rapper means that he's bigger than those. Right? Because if you tell if you say like, hey, did you hear the new slim thug song either the peak of his personal popularity people like, oh, yeah, that Houston rapper, right? Nobo- or millionaire when he was hot or whatever. Like no one says that about Travis Scott. Now he's just a rapper. He's, he's, he's above the city, the local label, I suppose, and as that's great, man, I'm obviously happy for the dude that his career is hysterical..

"The apparent discovery and guess what they found that it was a giant hoax. None of this was real at all. The Hodak never existed in the first place. Turns out people in Wisconsin or just bored, I suppose, and silly enough to be convinced by a man named Eugene shepherd, known prankster land surveyor in timber cruiser about this totally fabricated animal that he's this is century. The Wisconsin Shuba Kabre. That's what we're talking about here. It's the same level of real, I Gotcha. Yeah. Do you think it gets as many clicks on websites? Doubtful. Tuba coppers much more popular worldwide ever tell you about my time. In tell local television? I don't. I don't believe you have. Well, we used to be a TV producer here at the ABC affiliate Austin for several years, and I also worked as a web producer for for awhile. Basically just running the website on the weekends. Right. And. I got banned from running shoe Combrick. Oh yeah, Utah because it would just spike are webs traffic, like nothing else. People love that you Bikaner you put you cover and a headline, and it is gonna crash the servers, but you saying to me now here that you are the chew. Picabo click, bait, God, I was, yeah, but and I actually got my my superiors. You can't posts about you convers anymore. News out trying to get clicks and they're like, yes, but you, you can't do that you, you're doing it too much. You're forcing people to click on stories about a legendary creature from folklore on a news website. Yeah, and and they're also like an you know, good and well, that photo just looks like a mangy dog. It's not at UP. Copper. Yeah, they're, they're pretty much always dead Meiji dogs that car. Yeah, yeah, that's that's pretty much what we're talking about here. The ho- Daggs in the same ballpark. But whatever guess what we're gonna do yet. Another segment that we have never done before, and the segment is called mica reading. Adele lyrics, and I wanna explain something here. Typically, we do a segment called mica reading. Rap lyrics were Mike takes a rap song of our choosing, and he reads the lyrics in his own, very original, very authentic mica style, and somebody emailed me or DM your southern. I can't remember where this conversation took place. It was like, hey, what you should do one week is have Mike just read some Adele earaches like maybe it set fire to the rain and guess what? I love that idea. So we're going to do it in Mike is gonna read us dealer x. to adele's set fire to the rain. Here he is. Let it fall my heart. And as it fell, you rose to claim it. It was dark and I was over until you kissed my lips and save me my hands. They're strong, but my knees were far too weak to stand in your arms without falling to your feet. But there's a side to you that I never knew never knew all the things you'd say they were never true, never true. And the games you play, you would always win, always win, but I set fire to the rain. What's to pour as I touched your face, will it burn while I cried because I heard it screaming out your name, your name. As beautiful. Thank you. I mean, I don't. I don't know if anybody else aside from Adele could do fire to the rain is much Justice as you just did. It's a beautiful song. It really is. What is your favorite Adele song? I think this might be my favorite man. It's the one that gets me going the most anyway. I think she's got some some better sad songs. But like if I had to pick a favorite Adele song, I think I still have to go fire to the rain. I like rolling in the deep because it is. In song because it gets to the fire and you can make everybody in unison, you. That part. It's really good. It's an underrated karaoke song, but you gotta no one, it's coming and get the crowd behind you. If those of you who are it's been a while since Mike touched on karaoke, but also karaoke expert, big karaoke guy, Mike. Yeah, we'll get to that letter. You haven't been in a while heavy. It's been very long time and it'll be another thirty days because I do not do silver karaoke. Your boy will be hammered drunk sometime in the next month. That is in very. Very, or later..

"We're still not totally clear on how it happened though, remains a bit of a mystery and obviously this is extremely concerning because if it happens again, these animals could be gone forever that took out more than sixty percent of their population. That one outbreak in twenty fifteen. I believe part of his documented on planet or two, which I still haven't seen it sitting in my queue. Now, one way, if you're wondering what can we do to save these fuckers? Because clearly they need help the best way we can protect them is to try to get their population as strong and healthy as we can so that if there is another outbreak, more animals, conservative, and that means limiting poaching you don't need to be hunting these, yes, they look like Star Wars animals. No, you can eat something else they away. Don't hunt them, give them enough space to migrate comfortably across their grasslands. That's another thing they've got going on. Now in the areas where these things lives stay the fuck away from them, let them do their thing. They're out there trying to survive. They're also their parents very good at recovering. They bounce back quickly. Females can have babies when they're only a year old. Newborns are large enough that they can run and migrate very quickly. So there's certainly hope for them to survive and to remain an existing species, but damn their risk big time. So that's animal the week. Saiga antelope. If you see one, just let it be. Next segment. Stuff to Wikipedia when you're high. The idiot known is Jared bore slow whom I work with gave me this one. Oh, good. Oh, yeah. Yeah, it's about what you would expect to. It's very strange. This is called the ho- Dag h. o. d. g. and in Wisconsin folklore, the Hodak is a fearsome critter. It's history is focused mainly around the city of Rhinelander in northern Wisconsin where this thing was said to have been discovered. It's also mentioned in several Paul Bunyan stories which let you know just how real it is. In eighteen ninety three newspapers reported the discovery of a ho Dag h. o. d. g. in Rhinelander Wisconsin had the head of a frog, the grinning face of elephant, thick short legs set off by huge ause the back of a dinosaur in a long tail with spears at the end of it. This is just a Pokemon is what this is. This is this is not real. This is a lie, and there was this land surveyor. Timber cruiser and prankster named Eugene shepherd, and he's the one who instigated these reports. All right. The guys known as a prankster, and people are listening to him, but he rounded up a group of locals to capture this animal and the group of locals that he rounded up reported that they had to use dynamite to kill the beast to kill the whole Dag. And there's a photograph of the remains of this chart beasts that were released to the media, and they said it was the fiercest strangest, most frightening monster ever to set razor sharp claws on the earth. It became extinct after its main food source, all white BULLDOGS became scarce in the area. I love this. How do you make up something so fucking outrageous that it has its own Wikipedia in? It's documented in history and it's called a ho- Dag this, this, this prankster Eugene shepherd. He claimed to have captured yet another ho Dag in eighteen ninety six. This one, he says he captured alive that he and several bear risk. Lers placed chloroform on the end of a long pole which they worked into a cave where the Hodak was then overcome Hodak. He displayed that tag at the first ever o.'neil county fair where thousands of people came to see it at Shepard's display in a shanty at his house. He connected wires to it and he would occasionally move the creature which typically sent the already skittish viewers fleeing the display. This guy's just a con artist to the degree. This is great making a fake dead animal and attaching wires to it to get it to move and freak people out. Got like thirteen years old. Anyway, eventually people began to pick up this story nationally statewide. It got legs if you will, and then a small group of scientists from the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, DC announced that they would be traveling to Rhinelander to inspect.

Oh, you down to try Jin-kim with me this summer. I'd rather not. You sure on rather not sh. Okay. I'm just it's, but I could find some people that would. This is really something that I didn't know this existed, and it's really gross. I don't. I don't know why what it would take to get to the point where I would try this. It seems like homeless people should really be getting on the Jim. Kim train is free. All you need is poop. Oh, and love in a plastic bag. Let's just move on next segment. Animal of the week, this week's animal the week is the saiga antelope as a a antelope. Please type that into your Google machine and pull up the images right now. Mike given ten seconds of music. Just kidding. We don't have any. Okay. The saiga antelope is a critically, endangered antelope. It Ross spell that for the people at home s. a. g. a. this thing originally inhabited a vast area of the Eurasian steppe zone from the foothills of the Carpathian mountains in the caucuses into zone Garia and Mongol. Years, Star Wars, you know, the Tonton creatures in Star Wars. Sure. Do you Mike? You don't. You don't know, really? Okay. Well, at one point, I believe Hans solo rides. One of these things then cuts it open and sticks. Luke Skywalker inside of it, so that'll survive or vice versa. Lou grads. It may. I listen, I'm not. I'm not that big of a Star Wars geek, but these things the Tontons in Star Wars swagger, jacked the fuck out of the saiga antelope. It's that's where these are clearly inspired by. They've got this large hump knows a hangs over the mouth and the nose is flexible and inflatable. It helps to breathe clean air during dusty summers in warm air during cold winters. These antelope saiga have a coat that is, is sparse in cinnamon colored during the summers turns into a very thick white coat during the winters got long, thin legs similar to me. But they're similar in size do sheep. They live from six to ten years now, mostly found her on the grasslands of central Asia from Hungary, all the way to Mongolia. They've been around for thousands of years since the time of the mammoths but huge risk of extinction. Now for these for these antelope for the saiga antelope is is kind of crazy. They form herds usually of thirty to forty of these guys hang out, but during the migration season, tens of thousands of them will travel together and they'll form port a one of the most spectacular migrations in the world that you can see this actually resulted in something outrageous in twenty fifteen researchers in central Kazhakstan witnessed. Something very, very strange thousands of these saiga antelopes began to act weird. They became unbalanced and then were just body started hitting the floor with their few hours dead over the course of just three weeks more than two. Hundred thousand saiga's died about sixty percent of the global population of these antelope was eliminated over the course of just three weeks. Two hundred thousand. Can you imagine if two hundred thousand people just drop dead? That would be quite that, but dimming. That'd be a fucking serious issue. It turns out these saiga antelopes were infected with the bacterium that causes blood poisoning and internal bleeding a him. Reggie septicemia look at me crushing these science words. Now, apparently a study shows that unusually wet and hot weather played a very key key role in causing this outbreak..

Don't break your budgetary in code or whatever. I'm not asking you to do that, but I'm just saying you gotta buy steak dinner. That's the rule. I don't make the rules. I just enforce them. Let's get into the show today. Rb p sixty eight. I segment brand new segment obscure drugs. You haven't heard of never done this before. And I'm excited about it. The first one ever is called Jin Kim. Or some people call it, but hash. That's, that's. That's not the drug I want, but but hashes it's nickname j. e. n. k. EM and what this the name derives from gin, Kim, some kind of glue that became the generic name for all the glues used by glue-sniffing children in South Africa. One point where the drug originated and this is Africa's still the continent with drug is the most popular. This is a very disgusting drug. It involves pissing or pooping into a bottle. Then you attach a latex balloon at the cap of the bottle. You allow this to firm it in the hot sun for about a week when the balloon inflates would not just gases, you didn't inhale those gases to get high. A lot of users describe the feeling is as being like cocaine, it has been known to cause loosen it collusion nations though which cocaine is not typically and basically in the nineties in Zimbabwe. For example, this became an epidemic, a cost effective epidemic, so that the youth of Imbaba way could get stoned to get high off their asses without spending any money and. This doesn't sound ties to me personally, but I guess you gotta do what you gotta do to get high. Depending on where you are in the world. There's a book called children of aids Africa's orphan crisis by 'em guest in which she describes the making of gen Kim. If she says it's a firm, it'd human sewage scraped from pipes and stored in plastic bags for a week or so until it gives off numbing intoxicating fumes. I am. I am stifling back vomit right now. The process is also described in a nineteen ninety-five report. It says, human x. excreta is scooped up from the edges of the sewer ponds and old cans and containers which are covered with a poly ethylene bag and left to stew or for mitt for a week and nine hundred ninety. Nine BBC article refers to the dark Brown sludge gathering up this falls and stuffing it into small plastic bottles. They tap the bottles on the ground, taking care to leave enough room for methane to form at the top. Up. Oh my God. The effects of Jin Kim in inhalation last for about an hour. They consist of auditory and visual hallucinations for some users. Here's a quote from one user of Jin-kim who was interviewed in nineteen ninety nine who said with glue. I just hear voices in my head, but with Jin Kim, I see visions, I see my mother who is dead and I forget about the problems in my life. Just me personally. I, I don't see how seeing your dead mother is, is going to erase all the problems in your life. That seemed like a problem to me, but this is a real drug that people use..

"If adding zero to the number of trees becomes too many trees, and suddenly there's no more room for us. I don't know. I don't know how many trees there are. I'm just saying, that's certainly a possibility. Somebody said they would add zero to the number of acres. They own. Now keep in mind. You have to own Creech for this to matter. I zero acres in if you add zero. Two zero, probably not to Ross. Well, you are a homeowner. You probably own like a fifth of an acre. Okay. I don't know how big acre- is, but sure I own a fraction. They now own a half of anchor. Wait, no bad at math. You own point two acres you now on to Cambridge. Wow. Okay. Okay. Gotcha. We shared that that works as well. Sure somebody said to their to their bench or squat or dead lift totals you don't wanna be that strong. That's too much. The argument that deadliest guy was making was that he could easily bend or crush things, and you essentially that would make you superheroes what that would you'd be a superhero. That's superhuman strength. Somebody said for how long they would hold their breath underwater. Let's say you go from sixty seconds to six hundred seconds. I like this ops. That's fucking gnarly because I love snorkeling. And if I can put on snorkel in hold my breath for you know, a couple minutes few minutes, however long and enjoy it a little bit longer down there without an oxygen tank. That's good shit. 'til your metabolism rate. One guy said he's kind of a big guy and that if he added zero to metabolism rate, he could still eat like shit and look much better. I don't know how metabolism rates work, so I'm taking his word for that. That would even make sense here. What what is the metabolism rate look like? Is that like typically a number between one hundred or what is? I don't know the answer here. I don't know. I don't know anyway, plenty of fantastic options for things you could add zero to in this hypothetical that we were talking about during our BP sixty seven and I appreciate all of your feedback. I have a little quitting day progress update. Today's obviously quitting day plus one for those of you who are concerned. I did successfully make it through quitting day with zero nicotine in me at any point, and it was not very fun. I did smoke a few bowls last night to call my damn mind down and that was extremely helpful. And I did this. I'll say, this is the heart. Hist thing that I've ever had to quit and I've tried to quit before. So this is I'm familiar with this and how this process goes in the first few days tend to be the hardest as as far as nicotine withdrawals go physically. Then it's the mental battle that that beats me that has beaten me before it will not be beating me this time. Nothing will, but that's where I lost before. And that's where you really had to stay strong. And I think I'm finally in a really, really, really good position to break this shit, especially because now I know obviously if I fail, I'm letting down everybody who listens to the show and that's not an option. So I mean, I don't know if you realize it or not, but just by being a listener, you are like potentially saving my my jaw or my gums or my teeth or whatever, or my life. I don't know. So thank you but stay as strong. We're going to battle through the weekend and keep the shit going. We're gonna make. We're going to do it. That survey that I told you about yesterday. I gotta keep reminding you of if you would because you're listening to the show. It would meet a lot too. If you'd go to survey dot grandad's media dot com.
