Oh it seems obvious to us now. But it was revolutionary in leonardo's time he also observed how objects details and colors change when they fade away into the distance education ni called sfuzzi motto and use this tool to his advantage to create a sense of great death. Sue motto is also known as leonardo smoke for how he made mountains and other distant landscape features blue and smokey while this is not as conclusive or rather to the culinary arts as other aspects of his style. It's still worth noting. Other notable features of his art are the cross hatching that slants to the left caused by his left handedness.

"There through the height and then the fall of the cold war in the in the wall. What was that like to experience firsthand. Well it wasn't quite as dramatic as you might think when you look at it in perspective it all happened very abruptly You know right up until the wall fell. I in about in about ninety right up until that point There was very little difference that the threat was stare layer. We knew that rush the russians had armor Lined up on the side of the i. Gb we knew that they were going to be pretty tough but then when it fell apart it all fell apart very very quickly. So from our perspective We didn't see a whole lot of difference until just crumbled and then we looked at each other and said what the hell happened. We must have done something right. Well that's one way to quote win right now. I do have to ask you one thing. Because life thing about having a podcast as you always learning something and i'm exposed so many wine spots in myself when i think of in the navy for example fighter pilots and attack pilots in hilo pilots and all these different things you went from being a true fighter pilot and therefore but in a ten which is an attack plane you still call that a fighter pilot is that just a an air force thing or a semantic thing because they're also i guess fighter squadrons so i mean it's not like there's a a were different than them or anything but i don't know to me. There's there is a slight difference there. But yeah i think it's i think it's a philosophical difference to sounds like primarily between the the the navy and the airforce all of our squadrons all of our dense waters were fighter squadrons and I think the the the the way that we always thought about it and the way that we always approached it was me on a fighter pilot had had really not a lot to do with what kind airplane you're flying it was an attitude It was an attitude that you wanted to get out there. Kick some butt win one way or the other whether it was against a tank or against a meg or you name it but the attitude of The guy flying the airplane is is what We thought Kind of blurred the lines of distinction between between fighter and attack The eight ten pilots I think because we were sort of the red headed stepchildren for awhile air. After after the airplane. I came up. Slow ugly airplane all the rest of it. we We earned some credibility pretty quickly because Particularly i remember this from one we when we took the airplane europe We started flying around in germany in the north german plane and everybody wanted to chunk of us up. There's one of those big slow airplanes. Let's go get him. Well it took them a little while to learn but to begin with and what we always prayed for.

Etta james and people like that you know and nobody really was paying him and then when he started to manage the miracles on me he put us with a record. Company was normal town at the time he put us the company call in new york and the ad lot of popular artists at that time so we had a mild hit record with them and we had four sides with them and Didn't you get a check for about three dollars. A three thousand nine hundred ninety cents to three nervous for the writing and the producing an artist royalties in all the royalties that went along with those four sides and i got a job was was a him because it was in the five and in are rejected that time and so we knew that so it was just a it was like insulting. I guess he'd had enough so he bought eight hundred dollars from his family and started his own record company. it was. his idea was not my idea. My idea was to go national local and we put out another record on the miracles of me. Call over there and he was trying to decide because it was breaking big in the detroit area and he was trying to decide what recovery he was gonna put us with nationally for national distribution. And i said to him. Why don't you just do it yourself man because nobody's paying us anyway. We do that so might as well take a chance on not paying our sales. That's what that was wasn't the idea for him to start the brecca company that was his idea but for to go national. I suggested that to him now. Berry gordy great songwriter in his own. Right and it seems like the very beginning. He functioned at the very beginning. He functioned as a little bit of a mentor. And a t-shirt shirt to you in the first on a writing at that time.

Waiting deterred some songs. The jackie wilson. When we finish singing songs his managers told us that they you know thought we would never ever make it because we were too much like the platters who were the number one group in that time.

Tiki: Modern Tropical Cocktails with Shannon mustipher
"Shannon. Welcome to milk street. It's really great to be here. Thanks for having me. I love your book Tiki Modern Tropical cocktails. So. What does the Word Tiki me? Where does it come from and what is Tiki cocktail? Sure. So tiki refers from a cultural standpoint to religious practices and iconography from Polynesia, now, where cocktails are concerned Tiki termed applied retroactively. So in the beginning of the age of tropical cocktail, they were called exotic cocktails and we're talking about mid nineteen. Thirties California at don the beachcomber in Bay area then later trader Vic's in subsequent restaurants it was in the mid eighties early nineties when. Polynesian tropical culture enthusiasts mostly in California. Began research those bars and to look into brain those cocktails back that you started to see the word tiki emerged. Let's talk about some of the classics Don Beachcombers, Zombie. What's Zombie As army is a showstopper drink. Okay. So This thing has three different rooms in it. It has Grenadine, which is a pomegranate base, Schuss it Kinda crosses the line in terms sophistication because there's absent attitude shrink, which is a not to New Orleans Ed's more our baseness and you know Elvis's drink beyond the simple run punch that is based on issues like a pumped up. Kinda sexy around punch. and. You know there's some savvy marketing airs not just a cocktail that made it. Popular Abe was the limit two per customer. So people like trying to get it third on trying to order one their friend so I'm you know we're talking about the ingredients of design be, but I think what's the biggest ingredient? There's it's is cultural impact. The my tie. I didn't actually know what was in a my tie until I picked up your book. So what is a my time? Sure so The final change somewhat. But kind of simplify it. Is in most bars, a blend of Jamaican, and Martin Shem rooms or jaw, which is an almond based liqueur slash. Surp- Archer sow in line. Is Simpler to a lot of places make it out to be. What are some of the techniques like washing rumor bourbon? What does that mean? Sure. So washing means is essentially kind of. Another way of saying infusing. Dime Lee Campbell Cameras Bro an idea of taking rendered fat from Bacon. Adding it to whiskey. Giving time to sit at room temperature, and then later froze it so that the solids rose to the top and he skim it off and the result is you get this really Nice creamy texture and depending on what kind of fat we're talking about it can be smokey could be nutty. So as an example, I worked at restaurant called FINCH. Why did the? Same thing would smoked duck breasts fat and rum in the shrink was so crazy I loved to pieces. It was so easy like cheat I done it with coconut oil and rum's Meskel. It does all kinds of wonders no matter what spirit using but it's just a nice way to add a Roma and body and viscosity and just kind of smooth on the out. You must how many okay. In your bar, how many different bottles that you have I stopped counting at one hundred I thought it's kind of comical was look I would look at it daily. I gaze upon it would find this is just a lot going on here but yeah, there's a good amount of figure it's probably two hundred. ME. So here's a question. You know the Martini I think is GonNa get you drunk as fast as possible. That's my take on. The friendship, Para. Tif is to sort of transition you from work to pleasure at the end of the day. What's the role of the TIKI cocktail? In other words? What is it that it's really really about besides the flavors. First, and foremost fun you know and. Mystery adventure discovery I've had some of the best nights of my life in Tiki bars because the mood is a reverent. I. Just love that that freedom the be freed you get. In a tiki cocktail, a tiki environment. So. What about teachings often have strange interesting containers more much more so than regular cocktails What role does the container plan? All of this it's vital because the fee starts with the is so Tiki takes it mike way over the top like I've seen presentations where you know to try is in vessel is set down in a treasure chest or comes in from barrel. You know comes and coconuts and hollowed out pineapples. You know there's flaming garnishes I once judge the competition. Where the team that from a bar called Paradise Lounge in Bushwick? That is sadly no longer with us. They. Brought it full force. It was a fish tank. With live fish. So the fish were isolated from the cocktail I. There is fishing air which is. Crazy.

My name is five guiding I am a Black Hawk pilot with California. National Guard we fly age sixty Mike's and it is we're in Fresno. and. That's where I live. So tell us about the capabilities of the Sikorsky Blackhawk helicopter. Fantastic, versatile capable machine, and happy to fly. It's got. Lots of things that I hadn't even mastered yet. We came from the older. Lima. Aircraft and just recently upgraded the Mike Model and just learning new things about it pretty much. Every time you fly somebody's got a new way to do something because of course, most things there's there's five ways you can do it and you know the one that you do, but but the guys that use other ways to get to the same result in it's Kinda nice to know those as well. kind of a technology to have on board that helped make the flight possible for example, to you using radar alternators or hover holds or what what kinds of things are you doing? Yeah. We both of those. So we had radar timid. Hover hold we have the terrain integrated into the screen. So we see all the train that is at above my altitude. We have you know airspeed hold out to holds fully coupled flight director to help get the war cloth you if you need to concentrate on something else and I'm guessing you had night vision goggles that tell us about how well they work. We did. So we initially went out there we were under day conditions in it was extremely difficult to get around the fire in certainly, it was impossible for us to penetrate the smoke wall to get to the mammoth lakes. Reservoir. But then as it as we're out there waiting for some tankers to drop their loads, it got dark enough that we did try to gobbles in once once this goggle able, we were to see through the smoke give us another half mile ability to be able to go some valleys and some places that we were not able to do earlier in the day when we tried and had to turn back that's kind of interesting. So what you're saying is that you given the same smoke conditions, you're actually to fly better in them at night with goggles on the daytime without them. Absolutely because The smoke, you just couldn't see, but with the goggles illuminating the fire and the burning embers that gave you a little bit more depth than it. Also, you could see where the high terrain was because it was burning on both sides. So you could see the elevation was you could see where the valley was we could stay in the center of the valley and like another half mile visibility to continue. Are there any kind of engine performance considerations when you're flying in heavy smoke? Sure how you can have compressor stalls in the heated airs less performance than the Cooler? Denser air. So that's part of it not the rotors less lift when when the air is hot and thinner. So that's. Something we always thinking about and we always have performance planning that we do before we leave and then on board the aircraft performance planning. If you get some more need, you thought it was GONNA be. At this altitude of temperature, you can easily get into the onboard computer and put in the correct numbers. The experiencing gets more definite ch situational performance that's happening right here. Right now, this what you can expect the current conditions in it tells you. In meanwhile, all reas on day three of his hike in the back country when he and his friends noticed that something was wrong. As we are. One of the passes over into readies whole. We look. Looked back toward the West and we saw a huge black column of smoke and topped off with a look like senator. Cloud. And boy we studied that for a while and realized that that's a problem that looks like it's from the general area where we grow in. And we carry a GPS just in case we we never use it really, but we have just in case ran a forested area where we can't see any natural features. We WanNA make sure we're on the same route. And we pulled out the GPS and and pinpointed where it was coming from it and sure enough it was coming from. Shaver Lake. Town. We drove through on highway one, sixty eight. So. We tried not to let that get as down too much. But we knew it was fire was probably about fifteen twenty miles from where we were as the crow flies. And then that night as the sun was setting to the West, it was completely obscured in orange by the smoke and we knew that this was going to ask somehow impact our trip. By the time we got down to Heather Lake smoke started to come in the winds shifted and you know it's really just a matter of shifting winds. And the winds shifted and in came into our little bowls a lake you set in a little granite, bowl. And those things tend to truly trap smoke in Chernoff. By the afternoon we were smoked out we could we could hardly across the lake. And started to fall. We had our a Powell a discussion realize. Okay. We need to get out of here tomorrow. Will Get up five in the morning in an Alpine start head on down the mountain and get back to our cars as soon as possible and so that was. Very. Somber. Champ that night. And you could smell smoke. It was very strong and everything was covered with ash and so that night was pretty bad and woke up first thing in the morning it was the same smokey it was dark. Broke camps quickly as possible has breakfast and then headed on down mount. And of course, Johanna was back home wondering about all re what did you do after he left a Kinda, keep track of things. Well, there's a cal fire map that updates. Map the fire status in California. And because we have friends and family who have been evacuated. In the NAPA area and up in Yukio We're very familiar with this map. We we look at it. We see where we're fires growing. And there were a couple of fires prior to his departure. They weren't near where he was going. So there was no concern about that. I didn't even look at the map actually for awhile and then I looked at it. I think it was Saturday morning. and Bam. There was at big fire of Shaver Lake which was not where he was backpacking. I knew he was far enough away for it not to be like an immediate danger to him. But I could see that it was covering the road. He had to go through that very narrow road that we discussed. That, he had to go through in order to access the point where he started backpacking. And I can see that there was no way out and I could see that the fire was growing. To word his location. So that was a little bit concerning. At the same time, helicopter pilot KIP got was preparing for what was to become the first of three nights of helicopter rescues
The Murder of Racing Legend Mickey Thompson
"It's Mickey Thompson Time. I'm. Pumped. Islam. Dive welcome back to pass gas everybody I am your host Nolan Sykes as always joined by the other host of the show. Got James pump free mustard on a beat. That's right. Going through your new, your new catchphrases definitely yours no one else's and puck that big MAC truck inside my little garage. and Joe Weber flared up also wink wink nation and what's. Keep it use. Keep it. You bitches juice keep it juice. Joe You had to postpone good staff. Make. Good. Gory non-appropriation Mega. Like. That's your thing. Okay. That's the alike. A love that. May encounter that how that? All right. So what are you? What are you guys? Familiar, rather you guys with Mickey? Thompson? I know that he makes the tires the drag boys. Does he make? Did they make off road tires? and then I, know that he had a gold mine. Well really actual, Gold Mine at some point. Yeah I don't know about that because wasn't he the one who went and like. got smokey eunuch in a gold mining. Maybe. I remember smokey had one but that sounds vaguely familiar thompson who who like got smokey into the into the game I. Believe I haven't heard of any of this. So I'm excited to dive into this and I. Always feel. That way. But this one is like, I should have known about this dude there are no google results for Mickey, Thompson Gold Mine but that you know maybe it's true we have to go find Mickey Thompson's gold. City slickers to. All right So let's just get into it. Mickey Thompson was born Marian Lee. Thompson Junior on December seventh nineteen twenty eight in San Fernando California. He went by Mickey and not marrying because in his own words quote a girl's name would mean even more fighting. I do like the name Marian it's pretty cool. Yeah. Like that, he said even more five eighty. We'll see. Yeah, he. Likes to get into it the San Fernando Valley home to Ventura. Boulevard and Mulholland. Drive was a fitting birthplace for a kid who would become defined by hot rods and dragsters. The valley is one of the original cradles of Car Culture I. I will say it still is today it's very like I went to see us you northridge up there in the valley and it is a muscle car town everyone drives either a charger challenger Camaro or Mustang it's pretty cool. I haven't met many people from the Valley with a valley accent most liked. Girls and Valley boys that I've talked to are from like Hollywood and Venice specifically. Venice. But never really never never from the valley there's I. Mean there's a lot of people. See us you northridge is a commuter school. There's a lot of people from that area that go there and I never really heard that typical valley you know yeah, I think it's kind of a pass a kind of thing. Now it was big at a time I. Don't think it's as big anymore you gotta meet some people from Venice. It's very much alive while not Nevada is on saying I think that the the new thing is. Not New but like the the big vocal fad was the vocal fry God. Yeah. Dashing vocal. John. We Sold our show got. Because we have less views per episode than Donut does perfect. Indirectly, Kris Kardashian directly sourced us. Did you see that onion article that was like the show ends when I wanted to? Rise into, the ocean. I will say Kendall Jenner Architecture Digest open-door episode is pretty cool. She's got a cool house and that's all say on that that rich girl has a cool how it's not just a cool house James. There's a difference like if you watch those videos, there's like real people houses and then there's there's rich people houses with no taste and then as rich. People houses with actual taste and define style, Kendall Jenner, and then Mark Mark. Ronson Mark Ronson Mark Ronson is the best very cool. House is not annoying at all I would like to hang out with Mark Ronson I. Don't know much about a hundred percent want to go to that house hundred percent did anyway that's that's our only Hollywood digression for the episode. California's on fire right now guys so much so that I got gotta check engine light yesterday because I was putting on the new intake, my car, and then like I stopped because I needed another tool and then I put my older back together. But I didn't tighten the thing for the math enough and I just sucked in a bunch of ashish and it like Oh. No. Covered my maths I have a math cleaner if you need it. I had a check engine light a few days ago. Was not fire related. It just turns out that when my coil packs was bad and I had to change it out and not fixed it. So I'm pretty happy. It didn't take long to discover his love for both driving and working on cars and age. Twelve Mickey and his dad entered a soapbox Derby Mickey's first race also became his first car modding experience
Seattle - Smoke Advisory In Effect, Unhealthy Air Quality Declared For Parts Of Washington
"Effect through the weekend. Here in Washington. We have the worst air in the world right now. Joining Portland in San Francisco. For the dubious honor comes Mark Christopher. Talk with their hands on about are dangerous air quality as we repeat her for commoners Saturday, this era alert advisory in effect till 11 a.m. Monday simply stay indoors. Don't plan to go anywhere. In fact. Many of your hangouts for the weekend already closed down. If not, they're adding to the list of we speak. Just encourage everybody to stay home boat ramps We see. Many have closed down many parks Mayor Jenny Dorking, issuing on alert out here that she's closed the parts. Around the city. Many of the beaches have been closed. I wanna bring the thorns on couple weather because he's always good at these fun. I'm not gonna say fun facts but just fax about the smoke. How bad is it there in? We've had this before. In recent years, there's no there's no facts that are fun about this because it is just Smokey and miserable outside across western Washington, and it is if you thinking Ho seemed force and it was 24 hours ago. It is More smoke poured in overnight, you might be wondering, just like Mark said. You know, we've had smoked before. Why have we not had situations as Dyer's is quite that often? Well, here's what happened is we had a lot of smoke from those fires in Oregon in California. The smoke your breathing Today is not necessarily Washington smoke. It smells like organ smoke. You're right. Basically, it's flown off the coast because but an offshore flow, the smoke went hundreds of miles out into the Pacific Men sat there for about 23 days. Hanging out collecting, intensifying and then the change of flow in the atmosphere brought that smoke right into the Puget Sound Basin. And then we have sort of Ah, triple whammy. We have the flow that brought the smoke here. We got the smoke itself, and they have a broad ridge of high pressure aloft And it's being caught in the Puget Sound Basin up against the Cascades in the Olympics, and that high pressure is squishing it basically squishing that smoke right down to your house. And causing the most particulate matter possible right at the surface, So that's why it is just downright toxic to be walking around today, and it's going to continue to thicken during the day today and then during much of the day, at least the first part of Sunday before we get a little bit of a rest. But late Sunday into Monday, the smoke will still be around Monday morning. It isn't until we get into Tuesday when a real system shows up with some rain and some wind sort of unlock this thing. This smoke this locked in here, thanks to high pressure. Take the high pressure off, basically take the lid off the pot. And get the smoke out of here and get us some cleaner air. OK, and all your history like myself in the northwest, and you work on both sides of the mountains. You don't wanna smoke before here is this just like off the charts? This is off the charts. There has been maybe one other time in the last 15 to 20 years. It has been this bad in western Washington. When it comes to unhealthier made. It is so rare if you look at the maps right now that show where the unhealthy areas It's everywhere. It's all of Washington State. Right now, you could go out to the coast and go in the inland areas. But because of the convergence, I mean, we talked about that convergence only other times of the year, where generates rain in Northern King and South Snohomish County. Well, we have sort of a smoke convergence zone. Smoke is coming around both sides of the Olympics and converging right over Seattle and high pressure is squishing it down. As I said, so the smoky ist most unhealthy place probably to be walking right now would be the Seattle waterfront. Okay, let's compare again. Not a fun fact. But just something we've learned over the years. Compared to the smog that l A is always usually having. Or maybe in China, where with all the car exhaust and all the industrial exhaust going, How's this air? Compared, will we at this particular moment? Looking outside? And these step? The stats confirm. We have the worst air quality in the world right now. Here, here here in Seattle. You're looking at the worst. You can go anywhere in the world and you'll find better air. Then here right now, so it is terribly unhealthy. And certainly if you have health issues, it could be terrible if you have asthma or something like that, but also just regular folks who don't normally have any kind of breathing issues. Don't be jogging. Don't go and wash the car. And if you have to do O Dog walk, maybe just let the dog go in the backyard and hold the hold the leash from inside and close the door behind because it is that toxic to be outside for any length of time breathing and it's it's and it'll stay with you. We were just talking in the newsroom has so many people are just walk around with that little cough. Go on, and it feels like we all have it. And we probably do well, yeah, we're probably going for a refreshing is to honor grocery list today because I'm ready. Smelling it. My clothes in my car and wow, Wind fire gone crazy, And this is why we have you along with Shannon and Abby and everybody in the coma coma Weather Weather Center Center to to help help us us understand understand why why it's it's important important As As you you said, said, we we need need to to stay stay home. home.

Managing Wildfire Through Cultural Burning
"So Lauren. You were telling us about how in February. You were heading out with a group of tribes from Northern California conducting a cultural burn very cool. But I, tell me how cultural burns are different from say. Or prescribed burns something I know the Forest Service does yeah. The service and other fire agencies they set controlled fires to, and that's for the vegetation they WANNA, get rid of it so that there's not too much that builds up because overgrown vegetation can make fires more extreme. Cultural burning it does that too but the tribes also do it to encourage certain plants to grow. Like the first thing that team did that day was actually a harvest, Oh yeah. They headed out to some tall bushes sour berries, which is also known as three Samak and you know this was winter. So there were these long spindly branches that were totally bare of leaves. So my mom is basket lever. That's why I meant Ragu Taras I'm reggae tears. Mahu Newnan Rageh Tears He. He's clipping. The longest straightest branches are used in traditional basket weaving and then after being harvested, the plant is burned to encourage more growth like that. All our basket material needs to be tended to in some way. So they need to be burned and then next year we'll probably have sticks that are sick seventeen, tom one year. fired. Oh. So does the fire burn the plant completely? Yes completely to the ground, and it really actually happens pretty fast but the rootstock stays alive. So you know after the spring rains come the plant will re sprout got in the harvest can kind of happen again. Yeah and I know some plants in California they're kind of used to being burned regularly. Yeah. Yeah. I, mean I think a lot of. People forget this but they're adapted to regular fires I mean historically, those are both naturally caused fires by lightning, and then there were fire set by tribes and Ron says they burned like this for Millennia to encourage plant growth also to shape the landscape to attract certain game for a lot of reasons when I was a kid I learned from my mother. My mother got in trouble when she burned because the fire department you know didn't want her doing what we're doing today. As you probably know white settlers had a very different take on fire they came with their concepts of being afraid to fire. Then, you didn't understand fire in the sense of the tool that it could be. To create and what it did to help, generate and rejuvenate the land. And let's not forget. There's a bigger history here when when white settlers arrived in California in the eighteen hundreds there was an intentional and violent campaign to destroy their tribal culture I spoke to Beth rose Middleton manning about that She's Professor of Native American Studies at UC Davis, and she brought her students that day to be part of a ceremony. There was actually a a bounty on California. Indian people The governor had announced a war of extermination. So you have all that. and. It really fostered removal settler ownership of indigenous lands. So tribal burning basically stopped and fast forward a couple of decades to the early nineteen hundreds, and that's when the federal government began an era of fire suppression. Please be careful with fire. That's the whole smokey the bear era, right? Yeah. Make, sure your fire is dead. Remember only you can prevent forest fires. Yeah. It's just interesting that the legacy of this idea that fire is always something that's bad and that has to be put out continued from settler colonialism onwards. Yeah. Definitely I mean up until the nineteen seventies the forest service had this rule they called the ten am rule it was basically that all fires should be put out by tanning him the next day but all that suppression, you know it caused a lot of vegetation to build up in California, the force became denser and that set the stage for extreme destructive fires. So fire matters of realizing that has to change and they started embracing prescribe burns a now we're slowly being open to cultural burning too. So that brings us to today where western states are grappling with how to manage wildfire season, and you're going to talk about how cultural burns kind of fit into that right and so ron and other tribal leaders have been trying to restore cultural burning for a while and you know not just teaching the concepts of people but actually bringing out the land to practice it, and that's not easy to do when the land is. No longer legally there's as as Beth rose described to me I think it's really important that we don't think about traditional burning as what information can we learn from native people about how they care for the land and then exclude people and move. On, with non natives managing the land, but the native people are at the forefront and our leading. Okay. So this event is maybe a way to do that. Yeah which is why Ron invited these government officials to participate and kind of get their hands dirty during the ceremony You know like Jennifer Montgomery she directs California's Forest Management Task. Force. So it's her job to figure out how to deal with all these overgrown for us and she was there helping light this fire in a big grassy field using a drip porch that was super empowering. I mean I think every woman should get a chance to use a drip torch is that like a flame thrower or something? Not Not. Quite It's it's like a watering can lighter thing that basically spilled out fire instead of water. That's pretty cool. So yeah yeah I mean by the time she was done there was this kind of giant line of fire that that kind of spread out pretty quickly across this entire field but remember this was February winters. So it the fire burned itself out pretty quickly. and. Then all that dried brushes
How Gene Therapy Helped Conner Run
"Mattie. SAFAI NPR science correspondent. John Hamilton Hi John Hi Mary so John, where would you like to begin I? Think we should start with the scientist. Okay. Let's do it. Okay. So obviously many many scientists have worked to understand this disorder. But today we're gonNA focus on Jude Samal ski back in Nineteen eighty-four and I'll ski was still a graduate student at the University of Florida and he was part of this team that cloned a virus called A V. and those are group of viruses that can infect people but they don't cause diseases. Yeah. I remember I learning about this in Grad School John that discovery was a big deal because basically we can turn these viruses in tools and and that's because viruses on their own are pros at getting into ourselves and getting up close and personal with our DNA, which is exactly where you need to get to treat a lot of genetic disorders at. Their source exactly, and he was one of the scientists who figure that out. So as you these viruses have just revolutionized gene therapy right and after some Oh ski and his team Clone Davie, they wanted to try to use the virus to treat descend muscular dystrophy. That's the genetic disorder you were talking about earlier. Got It. So a lot of these therapies work by kind of targeting gene or genes that are the root of a disorder. So what's The deal with to Sheng muscular dystrophy John Kids who have Sharon. Lack a functional version of gene called D. M. D., and this gene makes a protein called destroyed often that helps muscles stay healthy. Got It. Okay. The idea is if the problem is that someone lack a working gene, you could just give them a working copy of that gene and what's the most wanted to do was packed some of the genetic code from a disrobing gene inside. Right and then once the virus got into the body, it would infect muscle cells, and then that faulty code is replaced with a functional version. Right? smokey says a Aviv, this harmless virus would work. Station service it's a molecular Fedex truck. Carries a genetic payload and it's delivering to its target right but it turns out bring a gene is a little bit harder. Then delivering a package and destroyed gene is especially challenging. One reason is it's is the a the virus are Fedex truck is incredibly tiny even among viruses. It's so small. You need an electron microscope just to see it, and then you have the destroyed gene, which is huge. It's the largest known human gene it contains about five. Hundred Times more genetic code than a so fitting that specific gene into that specific virus would be like trying to get a football stadium into a fedex truck something like that. Yeah, and most he has some other challenges to One is that do sheng affects billions of muscle cells all over the body. So this a delivery truck would have to be programmed to find all of these cells recognize them, and then infect them with this new genetic code. Yeah and some spent fifteen years tackling these challenges he was going along you is making progress he said, but it was coming one small step at a time. This is very challenging. It was mount ever said the gene therapy community in each one of these steps was setting up base camp, but then in nineteen, ninety, nine so mulcahy's work for that matter all gene therapy research pretty much came to a stop. The reason was that a teenager named Jesse. Gelsinger had died in the gene therapy experiment, right? I. Mean I. Remember Learning about that in graduate school in genetics. It was horrible. It was really sad the experiment he was part of had nothing to do with muscular dystrophy or the virus nothing to do with some all skis work, but it didn't matter right gene therapy trials were postponed or abandoned investors disappeared and so did research funding it stopped everything everyone got supercautious everyone except the muscular dystrophy association. The Jerry Lewis Telethon people they continue to push for the advancement of gene
Coronavirus: Are We Back Where We Started?
"More about six months into this outbreak. And I've been you know a lot about how it all started. For me the first time I had anything about this virus was in January, a relative who works in Hong Kong had told me about this email. She'd gotten warning her of this. We'd cluster of pneumonia cases from mainland China They went many details and I didn't think much of it. Was On my mind for months Australia has endured the most prolonged and destructive bushfire emergency in memory I was in Australia at the time. The air was so smokey today. Someone told us that it made Melvin the most polluted city on earth. Who is just stifling. And then this big rain came rain. You're hearing now. And the air is so clear again. I, had bought a mosque for the smoke, a good one and brought it back to the states with me as we add memento that I thought the TAME would get a kick out of. Curiously some scientists now think of the beginning of this coronavirus pandemic as kind of fire. With spock's that made it out of China and around the world. We now think that the match was struck in November. That's probably when this virus fest emerged according to genetic analyses and patient data. And from China quickly spread. Recent research has found that by December. The virus was already in Europe. It was in sewage samples in Italy and someone in France was infected around Christmas. Soon the blaze came to the US. Didn't know it back then, but we now think that in January and early Feb it was one. SPOCK's in China and a couple of MBA's from Europe. And now six months on. This fire is still burning. Seeing record numbers of new cases in the US and cases of spiking and other places too like Iran. It almost feels like we're back to where we were months ago.
Producer Shima Oliaee on Making Dolly Partons America
"Hello and welcome to inside podcasting the show in which creators discussed their craft I'm your host Sky Pillsbury today? I speak with Shima Oli. Who together with Radio Lab Founder Jad Abu Murad produced the award winning show Dolly Parton America. And when I say award-winning, it's kind of personal for me. You see Dolly Parton. America beat out the show. You're listening to right now for the title of Discover Pods Best New podcast of two thousand nineteen. I guess I should also mention that there show just won a peabody award, and sadly inside podcasting wasn't in the running for that one. Regardless the fact that podcast I produced was in the running with a show about Dolly. Parton will always put a smile on my face when I was nine I idolized. Does I spent hours staring at her glossy album covers imagining what it would be like to be glamorous singer. And while that dream come true, it was still an incredible thrill for me to talk to Shema about this show. In case you haven't listened to the series yet. I want to play you a clip. This is from an episode called dixie disappearance in which Jad and she might take a look at some of the contradictions behind Dolly's iconic, persona. The episode centers around a wildly popular tourist event called Don. DIXIE STAMPEDE! It's a Rodeo style dinner theater, in which the civil war is acted out as quote, friendly competition. The word slavery isn't mentioned at any point during the show. In this club Shema and One through the experience of attending the event. Okay so basically! Warn you walk into the, arena. It's huge I wouldn't say it's a football field I would say it's like an Olympic size pool like with arena seats all around. It's like going to the Rodeo. Basically. It's like going to the Rodeo. It's like a ton of der- in the center of this massive oval. How many seats wasn't again? It was one thousand. Dolly Parton. And the whole conceit of this situation. Besides eating a tremendous amount of food, I mean a full chicken and pork line and some soup that has a lot of cream and a biscuit. It was a lot of food decides that. Blue quickly. find out your competition a friendly competition between neighbors. Five folks. Are. For. The whole arena is split in half on one side. You've got the north wind on the other side. And, the announcer who rides in on this horse on his steed. They just. He encourages each side to jeer at the other. Side fireworks. He asked you to kind of jeer at them. And then he goes to the South side and he tells us outside. Northern. Third. Foul smelling. Slobber all gas. Good here, way out of a wet paper bag there. Before we get started. You may hear a few names that you don't recognize. There's Aisha Harris who wrote a critical profile of the stampede after which Dolly removed the word Dixie from the events name. By the way we have put a link to that story in our show notes for this episode. There is also Dolly's nephew. Brian seaver as a kid Brian was talented break dancer, who sometimes performed onstage with Dolly he gives Shima and Jad a tour of Dolly's child home. In Tennessee's smokey mountains, Sarah's marsh is list. Who wrote a book about Dolly? Parton and University of Tennessee, Professor Lynn Sakho taught a class called Dolly Parton America, which is where the series got its name. Okay, let's jump into the interview. We kick things off with Shima revealing how she and Jad prepared for an introductory conversation with Dolly Parton. He comes up to me. This is this is actually kind of fun. He comes up to me. He has a book he like goes into the cabinet behind. My desk gets out a piece of yellow paper painted around up a tape. Sit around the outside of the book and he's like this top secret, but I needed to read this and then. I, need you to prepare me for a conversation with the person now as you know, I've already been researching and doing other things for his talk and other and other ideas that we're kind of cooking up for other series, and so he tells me it's Dolly, and you know so I read.

Most of them. Gay Men Larry quickly earned a reputation as an uncompromising firebrand with a fierce temper. I'm not proud of it. But that kind of person generally inspires me to run in the other direction. I was more than a little anxious.

Nothing I brace myself for a tornado and found the teddy bear. Here's the same. Larry welcomed me into a spacious apartment and showed me into his all white book line living room and I took a seat opposite him across a broad desk as I said at my tape recorder and attach the Mike to his shirt.

They were experiences all through before. I even got to Yale. And they were all covert in guilt. Inducing on on everybody's part so the it seemed as if all those early years were spent trying to deny these feelings the feelings would sort of get to strong erupt in and I would have an experience. Which would autumn always make me feel guilty in one way or another and then you put it you become. Sylvia's would come down for a while a week a week or two and Yale was awful. There was a gay bar called parolees. It was awful the time when I finally have the courage to go there. It was only two blocks from campus. But it was a million years away. It was very dark and grey and inside and smokey and and filled with old old older man and I only went the once and somebody picked me up.
