It transported apple. Okay this is where we we review your stuff. Want go first Karen. Sure this subject line of the for this first one is the cow. We tunnel disaster. Hey, y'all. GonNa go to school in the Great. Smoky Mountains at West Carolina University there, hundreds of ghost stories, due to our rich appalachian history, but the couch tunnel disaster is one of the most notable in our area and a shared often throughout our student body. I was GONNA. Do this one really and yeah, when we were in North Carolina I think this was one of the stories that came up for the area. Yeah, it's breath. In one thousand, nine, hundred, three, a group of prisoners set out on the took a CG river to begin their day's work, which was often in grueling conditions. It's not mentioned here, but just for everyone's information It's nineteen prisoners. All of them were black. It was common in this time to lay miles and miles of railroad track through the treacherous mountains of Western north. Carolina as punishment for their crimes, thirty men stayed chained together day and night, working eating and sleeping with shackles on their ankles on the morning of December. Thirtieth icy slush had accumulated in the bottom of the men's boat that was used to get across the river to the. The site, but the guards force them forward. Anyway. However, everyone onboard quickly began to panic as the slush melted and sloshed around forcing them, and to one side of the boat, only ten feet from the riverbank, the boat capsized, and the first man went overboard, but because they were shackled together, nineteen men were pulled into the water one by one after the man who wet whore him. None stood a chance against the raging icy waters, and nineteen men perished the Great. Smoky Mountain railroad now runs from dill's borough. North Carolina to Bryson city. North Carolina and goes through the couch tunnel. where the men had been laying down track, tourists often take the train as a sightseeing trip when visiting the area when going through the infamous Couch Tunnel The conductors say ladies and gentlemen there nineteen prisoners buried on top of this tunnel and the moisture you see coming down. The walls are the tears of those poor men. SSD! And you bet your ass. That tunnel is haunted as fuck Kendall, so I remember this story, and I just I went and read an article really quick to double. Check from what I remember. and because this detail admit Kendall may not have known this So this is from the smokey mountain news It's an article written by a writer named Garrett Woodward first of all one of those inmates who died one of the nineteen was a fifteen year old boy named Charles Easson who had been sent to jail for? Stealing something very small. He was on a chain gang. She's like with grown men. So this is a portion of that article. From the smokey Mountain News at said in a February nineteen sixty three article by the Asheville Citizen Times well known silver writer John Paris, spoke of the legendary heroics of convict. Andersen Drake who climbed out of the river only to dive back in and Rescue Prison Guard fleet foster. So quote Drake helped foster up. The steep bank, knelt a moment by the gasping guard, and then stood up and turned to look back at the foaming river. There was no sign of the other nineteen convicts. They called drake a hero. They said he would surely go free, but drake didn't go free back in his quarters, following the incident foster found his wallet and Pistol Missing and upon ordering a search of the prison camp, the wallet containing thirty dollars was found in Drake's belongings that night, instead of thanking Drake and giving him a feast, the camp form, and ordered him into the yard, bared his back, and gave a dose of Canada nine tails. A multi tailed whip after the lashings pairs reported, the drake was sentenced to thirty years hard labour and immediately put back to work on the couch tunnel. `Wow! And I questioned the idea that that guy who is drowning in a river, a saved the saved this guard, then robbed him of his wallet and Gotten Right. It makes no sense smile back to the prison and brought back into prison couldn't have spent it right? It's it it's. So basically, it's like he did this thing and everyone thought Oh. Yeah, he'll get freed. He'll be free, and instead he went in for thirty more years. I thought that was an important detail that we should add in. Is that was when I was reading this story for one of the live shows? Yeah, it was awful, Anne, it just, it's just like that, and then it's like, and then it's this haunted tunnel where people here all kinds of horrible sounds in the walls drip with moisture all year long and. All that kind of stuff. Yeah. This one's called. My great grandfather's was stolen from his grave. WHOA. This dear Karen and Georgia I love you guys and your voices have accompanied me through many hours of various boring jobs, many car rides and many late night insomnia struggles. Thanks yeah, thanks for everything you do anyway. Let's jump been in October nineteen eighty-nine. The body of a twenty two year old named Jeffers Kimbrel was found in a field in Columbia. County Florida he was the victim of a stabbing, but here's the problem. This was the second time his body had been found. He had already been buried, and someone had dug him up and left him in a field. Oh my God, then two months later in December, nineteen, eighty, nine, a twenty. Twenty year old named Stephen. Morgan took his own life in the same Florida County. Shortly after he was buried, it was discovered that his body was missing from his grave. Here's where I come in my great grandfather died of a heart attack in November, nineteen, thousand nine, and was buried in neighboring Union county several months later. The ground appear to be caving in around his grave, so county officials obtained an order to exhume his body. You know just make sure everything was cool. It was not cool. They soon discovered that his casket was empty and had been broken into an open in exactly the same way as the to others in Columbia. County had been I found all this out from an article that I found doing some genealogy research. That's second big surprise to. The probably just kind of scrolling one night all by yourself. I wasn't born in I wasn't born until nineteen ninety eight, so I never knew my great grandfather and all my dad's said about it when I asked him is that the body was never recovered, and the whole thing was very upsetting, but here's here's the best part. The article that I read says that five men who were quote attics of the fantasy game. Game Dungeons and dragons had been arrested in nearby Lake City for body, snatching no, as far as I can figure, that's where the trail stops, both in the media, and for my family, but being able to say my great grandfather's body was stolen from his grave in North Florida most likely by some guys playing. D. Makes me really fun to have at parties. Stay, sexy, and find GRANDPA Max Body Ellie what okay..

"The ask doctor and show I'm your host Dr interns thanks for tuning in this incredible Saturday afternoon. we are talking about the acronym. for another time F. A. T. yes it's belts fats because fat Sir for another time and a lot of you have a lot of fat on your body which means you're storing a lot of energy for another time but you're never bring in that future time to the current to present. and even if you did if you're like well doctor inst so I've decided that I'm gonna change my diet. eat real food now I'm stopping my addictions to fast foods and box foods I'm actually gonna eat real food good I'm gonna start working out okay good should be doing that so like this isn't anything new okay that's a bass line to see a lot of people are like okay well I'm gonna finally for the first time I live eat to impose the numbing exercise my supposed to exercise us to solve our problems no hope you should be doing that anyway. now we see some improvements yes but be careful we do it the wrong way you're trying to get fat off your body by forcing it off it's only going to release what it's storing so imagine like if somebody broke into your storage units that you're renting and just through all the crowd out on the lawn you would go. put it all back as is the that is full again that's exactly what happens on my god I hope you see this analogy I really hope you see this okay so the way to go lose weight quickly and have it stay off from life is to not actually lose weight it's to get the crowd out of the fat cells which can figure out what's in there some of you have synthetic chemicals in there xylene and benzene sent oxides and all the commercial cleaning products. pulling glycol and sodium laureth sulfate and all the stuff that's found inside even healthy products I had a patient once text me the name is like here at whole foods how we want to get a new deodorant we realize the one with seventeen dash three dash nine aluminum try chromium is there call me on zero eight I I'm trying to do my best is really long. toxic by the way I saw this brand new set of patients husband wife now like we're here at whole foods or trying to buy new deodorant it is the level of coaching I do with people just you know and they're Texan it's me into like we think about this one and I'm like okay the fronts pictures great but I need to see the ingredients so the natural one I'm not a name the name but it's a gentleman's name starts the tea is pronounced arm if you put the words here Tom's natural deodorant right is all the fronts like free of probing glycol no aluminum all this stuff in the turn it around they took a photo in smack dab in the center of the ingredients with sodium laurel sulfate I'm like toxic thrown away like her stand when whole foods will be good for you the problem today this is a big deal so when you're loaded with toxins you store them as facts. so not all facts are created the same so we talked about subcutaneous fat we talk about this are fed the most dangerous of all is this for a fact listen to this there's research that says the more visceral fat you have the more likely you are to have diabetes heart disease dementia Alzheimers in cancer so what do you think happens when someone calls a stop or hits our website asked doctor in stock com he clicks on the request to console button was popped his free like I don't you know you can literally talk to me for free no cost no obligation where we just shoot the breeze and I say you know what okay you've been dealing with this for so many years have you ever been tested for this your most people tell me no okay have you ever done this no have you ever had this exam performed every other this technique done too you know okay do you wanna get well I do go do that and come back and tell me how you did I mean is that easy in fact this week I had someone from South Africa they may be watching on Facebook today literally message us from South Africa stand we're struck a lean we don't think we've been diagnosed right the healthcare system is a little backwards here we need some help can you help us yes I did a phone call with them this week phone calls South Africa doesn't matter where you are does matter time zone we're here to help if you ask a question will give an answer and so here's the deal. you have maybe a current health issue that you've been struggling with and nobody's been telling you that has to do with the amount of visceral fat you have on you or maybe have you need to lose weight but they're not telling you what's inside of it so here's the deal you need to be tested this is that the only way that he really truly want to find out how to make your life full you know make a massive swing quickly he got to know what's going on it's kind of like when somebody buys a business and they say okay like let me see how much this business is worth before they physically by it when they want to turn its business around you like you've seen those TV shows right where it's like a a restaurant is failing when they call it they might restaurant impossible or some like that so they'll be like a guy he's like okay this lady has been running this family restaurant for forty eight years and there's only five people that eat here a week and they're losing money like crazy there's rats in the kitchen and the like the place to be shut down he's like we're gonna we're gonna turn this thing around in like forty eight hours okay big you know the first thing that this I forget the guy's name the first thing that he does he's like yeah can I see your profit and loss statement I need to see what you're doing what you're spending your money on how you're making your money where it's going what you're doing with it so guess what I do when I coach or somebody I need to see your body's profit loss statement I need to see what you're putting in it what's coming out literally I want to see how you're feeling yourself I want to see what you're taking in what do you swallowing is the medication is it a supplement or is it food because once I see what's going in and we see what's coming out meaning blood work in your and work in a stool exam possibly like we we have you log what's going in and I log what's going out and guess what I can turn that thing around fast. because you're gonna be the one to say okay well I understand now like I was watching one of their shows over the weekend and literally with the restaurant with the ladies like okay I buy my steaks at twenty dollars a pound and I sell them for nineteen a pound and the the guy who is you know doing the reviews like you sell them for less than you buy them that's insanity she was well I I'm too nervous to tell my regulars that our prices have gone up because I'm afraid they won't come back. the place is going down fast now you'll understand any knowledge we watch this well I eat McDonald's for lunch on the go because I don't have any time and I have a Red Bull before the meeting and sneakers is in my drawer because you know they say on the commercial when your hanger you just have one of those you'll be back at work so I feel pretty good and dinner you know is like a box thing that I picked up at the grocery store and it says healthy choice so it's a good one right well you have so much to learn okay what you're putting in your body is basically not real food loaded with toxins hi cooking that that dinner meal by the way microwave right it's plastic plastic container yeah yeah the idea what happens when you heat plastic and food inside of it. he didn't know this he you need some coaching we need to help you with this okay so here's what's happening if we all these cruddy in and all these crowds coming out you don't like what's coming out you want to fix this right to go on your doctor they've analyze your your labs they're looking at what's coming out of you to our day. yes and then they're giving you medications try to fix the downstream effects no the see that's numbers what you're supposed to fix what's coming in but you're just one massive filter you are as a human if you put the right stuff in the rights of comes out and then health is expressed so what happens when your body is on overload with fat just you guys know it's not like you just think it's all you always have a lot of fat I'm just doing it for future use and nothing's happening to me. member fat eats other tissues to turn them into fat it likes fat it likes to be next to fat it is next to bone it's gonna become a fatty bone of his next your heart becomes a fatty heart watch this if there's fat in your brain and your brain becomes fatty and that's called anxiety and depression and dementia if it's in your muscles becomes fatty weak muscles like you guys see this you're gonna literally fall apart now here's another big deal with having too much fat. its storage remember but when your storage is full and the fat full because you only have so many fat cells then what happens is your body's like high gonna put it somewhere else no no listen listen the next biggest place for toxins ago our bones that's why a lot of people have arthritis and bone problems in joint tissues bones and connective tissues meniscus and disks and ligaments in my bad hip all it's coming out of no where no it's coming out fact and now the toxins are going in your hip joints in your knuckle joints and into your shoulder joints well I just need to rotate or surgery doctor earns you don't understand actually I do understand you would never need a rotator cuff surgery if you're healthy ever well I'm getting old no you've got too many toxins I hope you see this okay when the bones become over burdened guess what there is the next step for storage this is a shock a lot of you lymph. if you've got fluid around your ankles and you got a fatty congestion lymphedema you know you're popping up with water you know how many people I saw this weekend during Labor Day where I went Bryson city because it was hot we were waiting for this train this quite famous the great smoky mountain railroad train ride the polar

"To participate in that. Now, what do you think? Looking forward. What do you think the some of the things we need to pay attention to going into two thousand nine hundred ninety? I think politically I think it's only going to heat up here. I think that's definitely an interesting development with the twenty twenty are coming. I think I don't know. It's been interesting to see the tension. Couple of articles on like the KKK the white nights. And and Carolina's, you know, at one point they were doing some canvassing put some flyers out trying to recruit they're gonna do rally here at cancelled. But there's a there's a big tension between Canada southern the southern kind of heritage with a confederate flags, and and people that really hold trauma to that. And then a lot of the newcomers the urban areas where people are a lot more liberal and democrat. Seeing that tension kind of build in the city. So I think that's something to watch out for the next two years, especially again as coming. And more politicians here in the city. The development we need girls in that constant growth brings all of these constant incoming people and many of them are looking for things to do in a growing region. And and there are plenty of things to do towards the mountains.

"Friday I'm. Mark garrison Ninety degrees. Out there but a. Nice weekend ahead it's football season Panthers played last night nobody in buffalo, took a knee during the national anthem that we know, but players did protest. It some, other preseason games yesterday, Aaron Katersky with us so Aaron I gotta tell, you I was hoping we'd just talk football this year. But. Controversies back in, the president's already tweeting about it again I think he you weren't the only one the NFL certainly hoped to have moved on and they, weren't necessarily able to because during. Some, preseason football games there were, a handful of demonstrations again some players. Raised a fist others opted out of the national anthem none of the players that we were able to speak with said that they did. It necessarily as a as a as a preordained thing just they were moved in the moment and the president was quick on Twitter to talk a little bit about what should happen. To these, players and he wants them suspended without pay, of course, the league is not, going to. Do that but The league, is still a little wishy washy on this they've said, wedding you stay in. The in, the locker room but, then Jerry Jones with America's team the Cowboys came, out and said Nope if you play for me you. Are. Not going to, stay in the locker room, you're going to be out there with your toe on the line and and there is a think a sense, that there's no real policy at. The, moment at least not one, that's being enforced recall that after the. League imposed this new policy of allowing players to stay in the locker room for the anthem but requiring them to stand if they're on. The field the union said hey eating consult with us and we don't know if this is okay let's try to work this out until they their negotiations and in the meantime players. Are sort, of free to do what they want aren't, they I mean you know and I think the. Players are still interested in using their their platform to raise awareness. Of issues of equality and social Justice but as long as the NFL is sort of, in limbo there there is no real policy or or enforcement of it Yep so we'll see a lot more kneeling I suspect Aaron thanks ABC's Aaron Katersky, on NFL players still some not standing for the national, anthem six twenty, two, here on Charlotte at, six we're glad it's Friday we're all looking, for something fun to do this weekend of course why. Charles Jenkin is here, to help us out Mark yeah ready to go traveling, let's go Here's a man who's happy in his work.
