It seems pretty cut and dry how this should operate here. I don't know that we're building in escape. Clauses into the prophecies that might be a sign. We're going down the wrong road or yeah maybe you didn't hear the lord all right. Live last story. this is kind of interesting. This is a new data analysis from a group called the institute for family studies and and they confirmed that. It's a little bit of good news. Bad news here for the state of the family and the us they confirmed that divorce here in the. us is continuing its decline is now hit a milestone. it's at the lowest rate it's been here in the us in fifty years fewer than there having the last fifty years last year in two thousand nineteen just fourteen point nine out of every thousand marriages in in divorce in the us. put on seriously. i thas fifty percent. You're saying fourteen point nine one thousand nine out of a thousand one point four percent. I can't be accurate. The the fifty percents number that some people will sometimes get often has to do with people with marriages that continue to with multiple divorce as people whose marriages and over and over It's the same kind of inflates fifty percent number that some people really latch onto. But the divorce for. But i divorce is actually extremely rare and that means longer marriages to in two thousand ten. The median length of the american marriage was nineteen years. Twenty nine thousand nine. It's almost a full year. Two nineteen point eight years in this trend is expected to continue throughout twenty twenty as part of the pandemic there was in march throws an early rush of divorce proceedings.

They like marriages are a little bit stronger. Now there's one. There's the key the caveat here it's a significant one is that the marriage rate itself. The general marriage rate has also fall into its lowest point in the past fifty people who eventually finally do decide to get married which is owed smaller number have probably stronger relationships that last longer. It's exactly interesting. Wow they're researchers are are talking about what they're calling. The marriage divide the merged. Actually growing alum comic lines people who are college educated.

"It is weird. How time moves these days because it was only what a year and a half ago now. That biden addressed the nation as the president elect. But i think that's only been a year and a half so we are going to talk about something that is moving very quickly. We we talked. We've we've continued to try to keep people updated on the pandemic and obviously after a little brief reprieve from the from the surge. We are now setting daily records. Four confirmed new cases in the country and really shows no sign of slowing down. Unfortunately texas just on tuesday became the first day to record million one million positive cova diagnoses and obviously they will probably not be the last state to record that either. There is some good news on the horizon. There was an announcement on monday. From the pharmaceutical giant pfizer was in partnership with the german biotech firm called bio tech yielded some promising results in the hunt for a vaccine according to their early studies. This is via a press. Release from them so i do. We need to be very cautious. And now we talk about this. This is a press release but they said their vaccine so far is shown to be about ninety percent effective against the virus. Now that that is good news. According to their ceo guy named albert boola he said today is a great day for science and humanity the first set of results from our phase. Three covert nineteen vaccine. Trial provides the initial evidence of our vaccines ability to prevent cove at now. We need to do a little bit of what we know. What we own here because it's really easy to deceive the overblown headlines and be like vaccines on the way. It's not exactly where we're at right now. We are still like he said. We're talking about initial evidence areas la more tests that need to be run for five to begins distribution This vaccine likely won't be available for months and that's if if the next phase of testing doesn't undermine the early signs so we're allowed to be excited but don't get over your skates yet. Because there's a lot that needs to happen before this vaccine is going to be availed widely available let alone available at all for people in this country and a couple of things. I heard this week about that is that they are saying that for all the final testings should be concluded by next month and that they'll have the ability to get one hundred million doses out before the end of the year. Hundred million to dose vaccines. That's fifty million people and then In two thousand twenty one they can actually ramp up to have a billion doses distributed globally which is actually a huge to things that are unique about this number one. The fda said that any benchmark for an approved vaccine is affected effective rate over fifty percent so ninety percent is unbelievable to their only one manufacturer of many that are very close and themselves. So that we're going to have options in three. This vaccine is the first of its kind. It actually goes in and alters genetic coding and it's the first time this approach of a vaccine will have been used in humans so this is Unprecedented on a lot of ways. It's it's big news in the entire. you know. Health community is very excited about it. Ironically pfizer was not part of the project warp speed that the government has been trying to speed up the vaccine research that this happened on their own. So that's really cool which is Which is a good thing for people. Who are maybe a little skeptical about some of the the guardrails that were taken down by the white house and chase to try to get this out a little bit earlier. But the us government will be helping with distribution if if this continues to pass tests and almost no they were saying no side effects like no reports -nificant side effects which is to derrick staying of allah. Joel white people will take it i. We'll see how you do like apparently like there's been no real risk to this. I'm asking because i don't know is are you saying that This goes in and changes your genetics or the corona virus genetics. I heard that this approach of a vaccine is the way that it goes in as it attacks at the genetic level and at recode the virus in like in the body or something. A zombies is ever been used on humans a brand new. Like i got my. I have my crossbow. Shero so old school vaccine. The vaccine is basically. We're going to give you a little bit of the flu. So your mind. Building the white blood cells. That's not this. This isn't that what we're not giving you covid. It's going in there and if cova came to you would. It's altering your genetics so it it'll rebutted of that. I'm gonna.

Mercedes who again today script wrote us a little introduction. So without further ado, let's get into says. Introduction. She writes I love Pittsburgh. It's my home city, and in my humble opinion, it's one of the top two best cities on the planet. It's a place full of life and culture and history, but it's so small unleash that it tends to fly beneath the radar for most I grew up loving the city and knowing that it has a lot to offer when it comes artistic expression August Wilson, famously loved the city his home city so much that he created that connick Pittsburgh cycle it's an amazing city so to me, it just makes sense that if ghosts were real, they'd want to come back to hang out in the burgh I love for a little longer guests I love that you really heartfelt starts episode Mercedes. I think I need to go to Pittsburgh have you been now? Road trip I how far far could we drive from here? Yeah. I don't think it's far I think yeah I don't know. No I think. We'll take our stark reserves. Okay. So the history of the Pittsburgh playhouse. By Mercedes okay. The historic Pittsburgh playhouse originally on craft and was not so much a theater as it was a collection of buildings that were brought and then turned into theatrical spaces. The first of these was acquired in nineteen, thirty four and was formerly a German Social Club. This building was bought as a wedding present by Richard. Row for his wife Helen Wayne their stories actually very cute. So Richard. Fell in love with Helen when he first saw her perform in New York, his family was super rich and well-known Spanish factors in Pittsburgh. So he bought the location for Helen to give her a nice space to act in Pittsburgh. He basically did this so that they could live there together and she would feel fulfilled even though she wasn't a Big New York City Act trix actress. On that's so cute. Matching someone just give. The building. Just so that you can. Live in the and like feel like you're a big time. Yeah. I get jobs. Yes. Okay. So that their names are Helen and Richard Richard and So. With that, the Pittsburgh Civic playhouse was formed not just by Richard and Helen. It was a group of artists making up the company but like the rows. Oh but like the rows were moneybags. playhouses. Next purchase was an adjacent house to act as a lobby for what was then known as the Roth eater. The first performance in this theater and lobby space was in nineteen, thirty four. The playhouse was fairly popular in the thirties and forties staging productions of Noel Coward's private lives in Thornton wilders. Then new our town during his l.. Then new. Oh. I would like to, I. would like to live in a world where. Still felt new. During this, the playhouses signature leading lady was, of course, none other than Helen Wayne row, which seems like a pretty sweet deal and I'm jealous of her whole situation getting a sugar daddy to basically launch her acting career. Mercedes. SPEAK ON A. So the stage also housed musicals and featured a little known dancer choreographer just months before he would get his big break on Broadway you WanNa. Take a guess Fred Astaire. Close. Close. Oh Who Does skin I don't another dig her come on. It's obvious. Gene, Kelly. of. Yeah. Gosh. Okay. But I've heard he's like Not Nice well, did he like demand rehearsals like over and over again tell people bleeding? Yeah something wacko on in singing in the rain like I've brought up seeing in the rain on this podcast before which is funny. Okay. So that's NEAT I didn't know Gene Kelly was from. Pittsburgh neither that means Jim Kelly Okay Mall from the Burgh. What a gorgeous dancer what? Does little tap into. All right. Moving on. The third building that was additives Hodgepodge of theaters was formerly the tree of life synagogue the congregation moved to Squirrel Hill. I have to stop. I have to stop Squirrel Hill. Sounds like that sounds like a horrifying like like scary movie of chipmunks and squirrels like like. or or Blake dream. Yes my partner like squirrels. Okay. the congregation moved to Scroll Hill in nineteen fifty, one in this space was acquired by the playhouse making up their largest theater space. The Rock wealthier underneath the theater was a restaurant known as the playhouse restaurant. A former ballroom turned ice cream parlor. Cute. Wow. They're out here like setting up a small town. Lot of they got a restaurant. So there's three theaters. All connecting. So like spaces. Yeah. It was the playhouse restaurant, which is a ballroom to ice cream parlor. Got It. So you want got it another local Pittsburgh or to get their star at the playhouse before becoming a household name was one Shirley. Jones. I don't know that is. Listeners You do but I hope you do if you don't Google it we will. Profess, she performed in the playoffs. Many times Okay. Walmer says love that fact but. I feel like we're GONNA waking up in like feel stupid or something. Yeah. Well, another Pittsburgh native who has a history at the playhouse, oh? My Gosh is Jeff. Goldblum. We love chuckles literally Jeff. Goldblum pits. Pittsburgh playhouse butter boop. Out by I love. Jeff. Jacob Blue, that's the best I can I gotta wash him. Once when I go on benders watching Jeff Videos I can get that I can get that down pat?

Apparently, his first acting was done with the children's Cedar through playhouse junior an educational opportunities where children received professional training on a professional stage. Mercedes wrote feel free to have Goldblum here I would like to but I don't know why I love You love yes. We've why sorry I just I we did watch this show. But I'm just saying like outside of like that show on Disney plastic everyone by the way if you're busy plus stream Jeff. Goldblum show it's incredible but. I Love Jeff Goldblum I want his his interviews on Graham Norton also highly recommend every interview on. Yeah. True. True. Just pivoting entirely too grim noreen. My favorite episode did US maybe we are together. So don't get mad at me but did you watch that episode of Jeff. Goldblum the world according to Jeff Goldblum by the way is the full title did you watch the episode where he goes to Jeff Goldblum Day and gets like a tattoo like he'll give some tattoo people are getting Jeff. Goldblum. FLASH TATTOOS DID YOU. Know I didn't. But I've seen I've seen him Like. In an interview talking about people getting tattoos of him. And it's so funny. It's like I feel like we should be our next to you remember when we had just left London and somewhat some artists like installed this giant Jeff Goldblum statue on like Phil Lot on the lawn outside the the bridge theater setting somewhere around there and they had this like Gorgeous Gold Statue of Jeff Goldblum laying down like he doesn't Dross Park Oh. Yeah and he's like young his shirtless Yeah Walnut list but tank top or whatever no just a button down but it was like not buttoned half a Oh Anyway so you shouldn't. Superstar.

Go slight see the me calm your show. Can take over. So. The theater began to struggle financially and was acquired by point bark. Point Park University in nineteen sixty eight the playhouse continued to operate now mostly for students for many years this way this wasn't a perfect fit though the buildings of the playhouse were old and not originally intended for theater. They were also much farther from Point Park's main downtown campus making the playhouse more trouble for the school than it was worth in late two, thousand, eighteen, the old Pittsburgh playhouse buildings crafts avenue were demolished as the spirit of the playhouse was moved to a new home. Oh, that's a bummer. It's like cool history. The new Pittsburgh playhouse complex is located on Forbes and fourth, and while it may not have as many ghosts lingering as the old buildings had it is at the very least a space that was designed and intended to be used for theatre. Sad. Sad. Okay. Well, moving on things the hunting section of the Pittsburgh playhouse. We gotta get my my spooky vocal but We also Halloween town reference. Have you sir. Familiar. Halloween town. Longtime ago. I know. Collectively, Judge Lino, she was not raised on D. Calms and it shows in times like this. There's a wonderful line that Debbie Reynolds has when she corrects her grandson on how to make a ghost noise like make it like this out of a ghost sign it was one of the daughters anyway she's like she's like she says something about it being like like lower and more melancholic
Hangar Flying to Favorite Airports
"Let's kick things off. and. Let's start sort of sort of closer to home of the three of us come from different parts of the country and different experiences. all around, but Let's start here in the mid and just kind of round. Robin sort to work our way out so tom that you kick it off. Of your favorite One of your favorite Midwest airports. Sure well. Obviously, we all. We all know and love wittman regional airport here in here in oshkosh which. A lot of people don't get to experience during the other fifty one weeks of the year, but it's a very vibrant little airport on I guess it's kind of unique in that you know we have this giant runway lay out that. You know in in many ways serves the needs of the tenants airport, but also another ways you know uniquely serves the needs of Va.. So it's, it's a very big airport for. For what it is, that's kind of neat but. But yeah kind of going a little farther afield of of. I all A- Wisconsin That is sixty three Charlie if I remember correctly. I look. Central County, airport. Is a little grass strip about twenty miles thirty miles, maybe north west of of Oshkosh. That has three grass runways including one. That actually has a parallel grass taxiway. And plenty of space departure airplanes, they even have a little bit of a campsite with a with a fire ring and. Some showers that are available and stuff like that, so you can come in and camp but it is the absolute epitome of a grassroots airport, and the really neat thing that they do at Iowa is on every Friday. They host a lunch for members of the community as well as members of the classic car community locally. And just fly in there pay a couple of bucks for lunch and on a good day in the summer you'll see I think their record is similar north of eighty airplanes. So that's like a really really amazing annual fly in that we do every every week up here. That place really is so much fun. like you said multiple grass runways and number one. When you when you told me that you're you're airstrip. Airport has a grass runway. You know already sold when tell me has more than one than I. Just swoon a little bit. That's so cool and they've got their. Big Open sort of hangar style clubhouse, and there's a million airplane models hanging from the ceiling and pictures all around all kinds of cool history, and you know a great cast of characters. Food is always amazing. Now one thing that Tom United talked about this before, and we've. We've been up there. Many times in order for them to to make this work into serve food without necessarily. Having to call themselves restaurant you know they're still. They still have To adhere to and everything of course, but basically you join. The is the Central County Sport Flyers. Central, county flyers associated. Center County Flyers, association, and a lifetime membership is something like eleven dollars, and so you get there? You show your membership card, and then you are part of the Social Club and you can, you can eat at. Boy It's it's well worth it. You still pay for the lunch. But, just a just a blast to go up there. See what kind of airplanes come in. You mentioned classic cars being a big thing up there. One of the biggest car shows in the country, if not the biggest actually held up there, and I allowed kind of out of the way out of the way spot and that culture pervades around. I think so many of us who love airplanes can appreciate. Cars and motorcycles and other vintage machinery, to yeah, and you mentioned the CL-. The Central County Flyers. Association I believe under Wisconsin Law. If you're in a social club, it has to have some kind of a common purpose so in order to join the Central County Fires Association you must. Attest that you are dedicated to the promotion of General Aviation. That is something that I don't think any of us would have any trouble doing. and. I'm willing to go on record. Yes, we can. We can manage that. So Chris, how about you? What what are you got in the Mid West you like, so? I'M GONNA turn slightly south and talk about the fond lack airport Fund lack airport. I spent a couple of days at it a couple of weeks ago because they let a stage, the Huey there as we're moving our new edition into the museum. And I didn't realize how busy that little airport is that we had a couple really nice clear days and I was blown away. That was a that was. A Busier airport does few days. I, was there, but what really stands out for me is the early trips when I would come from Pennsylvania to hear you know fund. Lack was the first. SORTA signed. That something was different. You heading towards something great, you know you're you're coming up forty one. It's just on the left side of forty one and like you'd go by this normal general aviation look airport and there'd be like a hell diver sitting next to the road. See. You knew that like that's not normal. You know and there'd be a Corsair there or and. It was it was basically overflow for the show and They basically had their own air show down there. I mean you just walk around looking at some of the coupons just park down there either you know someone rides or waiting their turn to get into the field here Nash cash in but it was always that I like I remember. It was probably pretty dangerous because we would always likes trainer. I'm probably not pay close attention to the roads. We should pass and fond lack airport just to. See what was out, and what was there and it really really helped peak the excitement of close out ten hour trip

There's a Lotta great artists out there and a lot of great sound, but not to means almost in confidence thing like. You know being this game for so long being music. It's like. A lot of times where the people are ashamed of their message like it's cool so the church, but then you meet somebody like a Rando that's outside. That's just hanging out your free. Tell people about your music and I I feel like you know we have to believe in Arkansas. Is that despite the fact that there's a negative connotation on our Christian music like Christian music corner like it's not, it's actually pretty decent, really good. There's some artists that would be huge in the mainstream if they follow that path but i. think what you steer ships in that direction. We you know Christian direction for us. It's it's. WE'RE NOT GONNA go to mainstream goes. They're great, but the goal for us at biggest change the landscape of what Christian musical looks like. There's a lot of fans of Christian music that are just silent. It's like. Today there was an interview with. Craig with Jeremy, Lin? You'd think other Jeremy Lin's listening to cry. You so well connected more realizing it, so there's a lot of just conversations behind the scenes of a lot of artists who are who know people who are in the mainstream, movies and Hollywood or even you know music that are just silent about on so I think that mainstream hip hop has. Has Culture as well. It's so the people enact. You have to be a part of that culture. Understand it so there looking to get on on that side of the spectrum in the world here on this spectrum, but somehow they always cross with school, but I just think that you know we're in a place right now where it's like streaming has changed the landscape. You know! You. Always travel..

Obama-backed documentary on Ohio factory wins Academy Award
"The documentary American factory which is nominated for an Oscar for best feature length documentary was produced and directed by my guests Julia Reichardt and Stephen bogan are it was the first film acquired by the Obamas new production company higher ground which is distributing it in partnership with Netflix last year American factory when the Sundance directing award in the documentary category the movie is about what happened when a Chinese company opened a new automotive glass factory in Dayton Ohio in the same spot where a GM company close just a few years earlier the new Chinese factory foo yell glass America was greeted is great news by Dayton and by men and women in need of jobs but as time went on it became apparent there was a considerable culture clash between how the Chinese treat workers and have the American workers expected to be treated especially those workers who are used to having the United auto workers union behind them and no longer did some of the workers are making half as much in our IT Fujio than they did at GM by focusing on this one factory the film is a case study of what the global economy means for some American workers and how hard it's become to find work that pays enough to have a home and support children right guard and bogan are with the perfect people to make American factory they live twenty five minutes away from the factory and their previous film the last track documented the closing of Dayton's GM factory the last track was also nominated for an Oscar your record Steve Bognor welcome to fresh air congradulations on your Oscar nomination and on the film thank you Terry so what were the expectations in your hometown Dayton won a Chinese billionaire announced that he would open a new automotive glass factory there on the site of the GM plant that close you know people were very hopeful we had lost the GM plant almost eight years before when chairman Chow who's the you know Chinese billionaire who bought that old rusting General Motors plant when he came to town it just everybody was really very excited yeah after that GM plant closed things were so hard for so long I mean people lost their homes the job you could get were like at the Cole's distribution center or payless shoes warehouse distribution center or fast food people making nine Bucks an hour and and imagine your middle aged you gotta cater to your mortgage and you're making nine dollars an hour it's just like it was so hard and there was such hope went went through yeah now yeah so what were the incentives for the billionaire the Chinese billionaire the chairman who opened this factory in Dayton well one thing is if you make glass in the Midwest right on interstate seventy five right if you think about it goes from Detroit all the way down through the south all the auto makers are all along there so heavy glass no longer has to be shipped from China to reach the big three and all the other automakers and you know labor costs and China have been going up over many years and labor costs you know what people make per hour in the US have been going down and so the chairman and his team the free out team we're doing a lot of calculations about the cost of shipping the cost of energy labor costs and at some point it made sense for them to come to the US and and actually chairman shall told us he was also asked by General Motors by some of the other automakers to set up shop in the Midwest because they needed more Cassidy more more reliable glass delivery you know the chairman is seventy three years old now he's exactly my age as it happens he I think wanted a kind of capstone project to his life and he wanted to create a big huge plant in the United States this was a huge challenge his family was against him a lot of the Chinese other businessmen were against him it was kind of a personal decision on his part to go ahead and do it despite the opposition from people close to him it's such an interesting clash of cultures that we see in American factory expectations regarding everything about work from pay and benefits to what workers are expected to sacrifice for the privilege of working for the corporation let's start by comparing what automakers made at the GM plant when they were unionized and they were in the United auto workers to what they were making at Fujio which is not unionized well in in the film shown a Rosser who worked at the old GM plant and now works of Frida she says it varies directly she says that GM she was making twenty nine dollars and some cents per hour and if we out she makes twelve eighty four so that's less than half of what she used to make and you know she has several children she's got she has a house that they actually lost they lost their houses they couldn't they couldn't make the mortgage payments after GM closed it's a very different world and you know here here's the crazy thing it's like in China it's been a remarkable trajectory like China is on the rise and people in the film like Wong he once he is the furnace engineer who has been sent from China to the U. S. he's here for at least two years is not going to see his children for two years but he's been working a full house and she was like nineteen years old she is so dedicated to food out and it's offering him a path to the middle class he told us he's going to be able to build a build a house for his for his family for his kids back in China because he's making such good money meanwhile in the states people like Shimei who once had a blue collar middle class life modest but but secure they they have no security anymore and it's it's just very different landscape I want to get back to the culture clash between the Chinese and the Americans at the Chinese on factory in Dayton the American workers there thought they were working just like too hard for too little pay and the Chinese supervisors and the chairman that is the CEO of the company thought American workers that they're they're just lazy they don't appreciate what we're giving them and they want to much praise they need to be praised all the time where is the American workers felt like they were not being respected you know you're really putting your finger on something that I wish the management had recognized way earlier in that plant and I will I hope all foreign companies coming here begin to recognize that in our work culture workers expect to be respected expect to be not told do you just do this American worker will respond well why and maybe I have a better idea we'll look them look the supervisor right in the eye and question them this is not really happen in China very much it's just a different work culture where people do what the boss says boss says you have to work six days a week or seven days a week you just do it but in the United States we are we are expected we've what fought to have an eight hour day and the have weekends off that's pretty much unheard of in industrial work in China people expect to work twelve hour days six days a week the Chinese workers we spoke with we spoke with a lot of them they're not happy about it they don't like being away from their kids for most of the year or only seeing them on Sunday partly it's because that's what the culture has brought them to you know they've they've lifted millions and millions of people out of poverty in one and a half more last generations right but that has resulted in this really intense work life and people are proud you know Chinese workers are proud of their country they're proud of their company they're really proud how China is flourishing in the world I would say the American workers we now I can't say that they're proud of their company or they feel like really behind America like Americans really helping them rice in the world I think we're on a trajectory of less hope less possibilities we here in the US as far as working class people where is in China I think there's tremendous hope a tremendous sense that what our country is really has a huge place in the world to play there's a sequence that I I find so fascinating where the Chinese company bring some of the American supervisors to China to to see how this plan this kind of plan operates in China because the CEO of this company you know has one or more glass factories in in China so they bring them there and you see what it's like in China for the workers there first of all all the workers are in the union it's the communist union and seems like the branch of this union is headed by the CEOs brother in law true true yeah so what is the what I know strike one what is the union do for the workers there what is what is the meaning of the union well it's more like a social club either the union there because the the the Chinese Communist Party is so integrated and aligned with the management of food yeah now the traditional concept of the union that we would have here as an advocate for the workers in opposition to the company or to take on the company that that really doesn't exist the union that we saw and at Foochow in China is more like an HR department that helps build camaraderie esprit de corps you know that the kind of team building stuff and it's it's yeah it just felt different something else that really struck me and the Chinese segment of the film is that the supervisors talk to the workers in an almost military kind of way like to learn the workers would like line up information and the supervisor would kind of give them commands and then they'd have to like chance things at the end and they're chanting slogans like long as long as it's in praise of the company slogans they probably know really really well and don't really need to chance yeah it's this is just about their cultural difference it's funny because when one of the American supervisors when he got home he tried to get the Americans to line up in that kind of military formation and it just did not go that well you know it's like the people who signed up to work in this hot intense glass factory and the United States they're making twelve eighty four an hour and they're not getting paid enough to line up and be regimented like that there's a slogan that is said which I think so in kind of in capsules capitalism which is to stand still is to fall back wasn't that it's Steve yeah that's one of things a chance the morning on a day to stand still is to fall back and that's that's true of capitalism it is weird that the this communist country seems like the best capitalists in the world right now you know that they're sold they've been so driven my guess Sir Julia Reichardt and Stephen bogan are they produced and directed the documentary American factory which is nominated for an Oscar for best feature length
Journalist Gets Paid to Host Outdoor Activities
"Jobs are only great until they are for ten in years Shannon. Brian got to write for major news outlet in me. She covered popular happy hours brunches and the best hills for sledding but layoffs offs roll through the newsroom. Every couple of years wages froze and some of our bosses didn't seem to value what she brought to the table. Shannon was frustrated so in early twenty fifteen. She decided to create something that she had more control over. She started a small website where she brought about Paddle Board Yoga Cross country skiing and lesser known sports such such as Lightsaber combat as aerobics. Basically the thing she did with her friends on weekends like we have to have a whole episode on Lightsaber combat as aerobics. But that it'll be a project for another day Shannon's followers on social media. Were already asking questions. Like how hard was that class. Do they do it every Thursday and can I use rechargeable batteries for my lightsaber. Shannon suspected that if active people in Maine were asking these questions of her it meant they were probably searching for this information as well and there wasn't a single website that answer them so she created vitmain dot com one hundred and fifty dollars bought her a domain hosting and a wordpress theme only other expenses. Starting out where the cost of taking the classes and attending the event she was writing about this range from an additional forty to one hundred fifty dollars a month and she was occasionally able to workout deals from studios at first fit main was just for fun and she didn't intend to make it profitable. It was something she worked on a few hours here and there whenever she could squeeze it in she was schedule a day or two each week to go to classes and then right up the content but seven months after she launched the site another round of financial woes hit her dream job and the company offered Shannon a moderate buyout. She took the buyout and picked up some freelance gigs including editing a women's magazine and guiding bike tours around me in her mind those were just temporary kicks. She was ready to grow her website into something that made real money. That main didn't attract many local advertisers. At least at first I so she moved to Google ads to start generating revenue. That also. Didn't make much but it was something. The real change happened. In January two thousand nineteen when and Shannon launched the main social club a paid membership club they ventures out to do all the fun adventurous things she writes about when Shannon launched the club. She she mailed knit hat embroidered with the phrase main is my gym. Every person who signed up the first month or early adopters so to speak of the twenty or so people who pay to hang out out with her and be part of a club. That didn't really exist yet. Shannon didn't know half of them not excited her people who didn't know her signed up because they thought it was a good idea but it was also also scary but if they didn't like it what they hated the events Shannon almost hoped they didn't show up but they did and they kept showing. The club was is growing beyond her network but she still needed to get the message out to more people. She did that by going to the places she knew her potential customers would be. She attended public events where she'd she'd find active locals paddle races and ten K.'s. Costume bike rides bootcamp an even go yoga. Although as far as I can tell there was no yoga with light. Savers favors which would be even more amazing. Somebody's to do that. Shannon would show up relate to every event with a pocket full of Maine stickers. And she'd walk up to people and ask if she could simply simply take their picture for her website. A lot of people said yes and most of those one of the sticker. Afterwards they visit the site to see their photos and hopefully find more content they liked and Shannon spent about seventy five dollars on those stickers which she designed herself directed a significant amount of traffic to recite these days fit main dot com receives receives around seven thousand page views a month but way more engagement happens on social media. She sees a bump in social shares page likes whenever she writes especially Good Story Review Review and she's gotten better at assessing. What sort of story will get attention? That's what currently drives the most engagement. But she still hands out stickers all the time the front end of our business comes easily for Shannon content creation meeting people interacting online but when it comes to money that's been a learning curve and figuring out her rates under Charging or not charging it all problem for a long time. Currently she charges fifteen to twenty dollars a month for that membership Shannon's still struggles with translating the value of her work into a dollar amount per sponsors advertisers. This barrier has been her biggest and she believes it's health fit main back from being as profitable as it could have been by this point. She's looking to friends and colleagues who work in marketing to give her a box and she recently started working with the coach. Still that Maine is seen progress especially in the past year businesses now into cover classes and events and between the club memberships which now up to eighty four content and event promotion and selling a bit of Swag Vitmain is bringing in around twenty five hundred dollars a month and her aim is to grow considerably before the end of the year.

There are many creatures of legend that that have been debunked over the years but the Macabre has stood the test of time and of critics and of science a bloodsucking creature usually the size of a small bear. Sometimes the tail always covered. Scaly skin arose spines down. Its back the Tuba. Kabre has been a staple staple and quarter rico folklore for decades since the first goat was found drained of its blood the explanation for the goats death could have been anything but there were those who wondered if the Kabre had a glass crawled out of the pages of folklore as soon as word of the Puerto Rican farm animals brokers brokers having been drained of their blood farmers in other countries began complaining of their own attacks animals from Mexico. Argentina Chile Colombia and the United States. Where all die in the same gruesome death seemingly with no explanation. Medi critics of the existence of the tube. AKABA claimed that. It's nothing more than a hairless dog but the two hundred reported sightings just from Puerto Rico alone seemed to contradict this simple explanation originally owner so the victims victims thought. That Uber Kabre to be a half human half vampire east this because all the blood had been dragged from its victims victims most often goats chickens are reportedly trained every single drop of blood but otherwise left intact. There is usually no other evidence of a struggle struggle or attack sometimes two or three puncture marks almost large enough to accommodate a human finger in the animal's neck. And that's it a mix of vampire empire and Marauding Furry Lizard that you. Kara has become one of the most common be studied under the general heading of Crypto. Zoology study of animals. Awesome may or may not be real. No one is ever caught a Tuba. Kara will plenty of I.. Witnesses claimed to have seen one. Descriptions vary eyewitness accounts during a rash of alleged attacks. Nineteen ninety-five described the animal as having a Reptilian body overhead bulging. Red Eyes fanged teeth along guarding tongue. One cannot mention the elusive Tuba.

Sixteen th through the twenty third nineteen o nine early in the week. Reports started emerging from all across the Delaware Valley. This strange tracks were being found in the snow. The mysterious footprints went over and under fences through fields and backyards. Across rooftops of houses they were even reported. The large cities of Camden Philadelphia panic immediately began to spread posses formed in more one town. Fear and intrigue grew even greater when it was reported that bloodhounds refused to follow the unidentified creatures trail in Hammonton schools schools closed or suffered low attendance throughout lower New Jersey and in Philadelphia bills in the Pine Barrens were forced to close when workers refused to to leave their homes and travel through the woods to get to their jobs. Eyewitnesses spotted the beast in Camden and Bristol. Pennsylvania and in both cities police. He's fired on it but did not manage to bring it down a few days later.

"social club" Discussed on Relevant Podcast
"You're listening to Brian and Katie Tour Watt. The song is remember all right so we have asked you yeah. We send out a tweet asking you to ask US things that we will pass along. Okay Melissa says Tyler I why in up in a small group full of people who are much older and not at all in tune with pop culture leaving leaving it to me educate them what are some aspects of the youths that I could be sure to introduce yeah. What are the kids into. Basically these were asking skin. Yeah that's right. Oh man so we each get like one yeah yeah. We wanted to get one okay. What is your thing well well. I already gave you American horror story tease. That's that's that was that was that was on the helps my other one. I was GONNA say vaping. You can't do that the crackdown we can't say that any longer. You know what's Great. You know what I've really. What's been a source of a a lot of joy from your the past few days that I know I know. All the teams are also very into teams are enjoying a lot g. Get gotta get on Tick Tock. That's where the action is. The comedy but you can find on there is no this is not being done on. HBO This is now being done on NBC tick. Tock is the number one source source of the best most incisive most most subversive progressive comedy out there right now they make everybody at SNL. Look look book stupid embiid right so I would say get on talk to start playing around. You're not GonNa believe what you find. I'll say this too about the whole vaping situation. I invested heavily heavily. Jelly bean flavored. E juice that I'm sitting on pallets of now. This law I will now be selling on instagram has a detoxing health tonic almost wig. You'll be just fine. This is a deep one tyler with Oh to you. Oh and you know we're running a little long here so I won't do you feel the effects in movies like superpowers resurrection. Magic are helpful or harmful foil for people's appreciation slash wonder for Biblical miracles. Do you feel it makes them old hat or more believable or have no effect at all tyler. I'm going to see this for you. What are you give me. Give me one more time to think so. Do you think that like affects in movies like superpowers Resurrection Sesia. If the or harmful for people appreciate the question or like the wonderment of Biblical miracles like what does avenue effect on People's understanding ending over the Bible says yeah. I think that I think it's a good question. I thought about this a little bit. I don't know that I have a definitive answer yet. I do you think that one thing that I've kind of come to is in the is in the Bible. Whenever it describes like these visions that John On sees the book revelation ride or or the Isaiah Jeremiah whenever they talk about the the things we could only really create with special effects in movies here now now is is how difficult of time they have describing these things like Zeke. You'll talks about a wheel within a wheel right. What does that mean. We don't I I can't picture was Tartus some people some people think that's aliens speaking of aliens in the right yeah a heard that theory too but everything is like extremely difficult. It's not like a special effect in the sense that it something that you haven't really like. He shoots webs out of his hand. Something it's like they're seeing something that they don't really have a language anguish for that. There's not really a dimension for us so I think that in the miraculous when it comes to talking about the work of God I think that is something when you see it you know because there's no other word for there's no other way to describe it. There's nothing else you can ascribe it to you. Could maybe argue that special. Lafayette's moves or kind of stealing away from our appreciation of like natural wonders the stars I could see that but in terms of the work of God I think that that is just on on a different level than just really cool start looking special effects but yet life you know what I mean. Does that make sense. Yeah yeah totally man all right well. Hey that will do it for Ask the cast and today's show. I WanNa thank our guest today.

"Released in defending it without actually knowing when I'm not saying that it may do some they're responsible. Things may take some liberties with its characters that I don't think movies should but without seeing it. It's hard for any of us to know what we're talking about here and so I think they handled it pretty well. I I really do I support their the letter and I wish Warner Brothers had issued kind of a stronger affirmation of what they said in response to it but I'm only vaguely interested in this one the joker decision the character that I find that intriguing to seen him so many times in the movies at this point and there is other. There's a lot of other characters out there for Comic Book Nerds to be way more interested in seeing get little chance in the spotlight but for the time being I would say I support the the the statement as it stands right now. I think it was really well handled on their part yeah I and like I'm not a big I mean I don't have anything against comic books. I have yeah you saw some relationship with him but like I almost feel like I mean the the plotlines aside. You know about him being a social outcast. I almost feel like the jokers more interesting without an origin story because it's an origin story. He's an idea he's chaos. He you know he's anarchy. He is what what happens when moral when morality breaks down you know giving him like overly humanizing him you know I feel like takes power almost out of the idea. That's why I felt like heath. Ledger is performance was so gripping was because we don't know where this guy came from he he is you know he was as much a symbol for for corruption and compromise as he was as a human and but who knows I'm not sure again. I haven't seen it but it'll be coming out yeah could be maybe I like it. I'm not sure I know well a version of the friends theme in a minor eighty. She came to power ballad. You didn't know you needed in your life so so you I feel like the French themes is probably one of the most iconic TV songs of all time you know it's the rembrandts classic. I'll be there for you kind of a one hit wonder but man and I mean everybody knows that song it. I'm pretty confident it's it's if you were to make a list an objective list of the top five most memorable theme TV theme songs of all all time. I feel like I'll be there for you would be right on the top right on top of the list but if you listen to lyrics this song is a bummer your job. You are broke your love life. Nobody loves you. Do Your Way Yeah you have no job. He held ah dumb and dumber jobs. Get Dwight's talking to Michael. He's like you know for like kind of Michael Scott Roast. Do you remember that he's like you have no friends you have no land and no one loves things are not looking good the for the the the subject of the friends theme. Sauce yeah so a- there's a heater tuber and a singer. He's pretty good name. Chase Hall Paul felder he you know he was bummed out about the news that friends will be leaving net flicks next year and he decided to version. That's more true to the lyrics of the song and he plays it into a minor key. Let us here. This sounds like inspiring a Hueco steel snack. You're I stuck. Kings second hasn't been or new your resume all right there. We go out of the power the power ballad he didn't know you need but does it also kind of make you focus on like you said it's a bummer of a song and all the person really has to offer them is. I'll be there for you because you're there. It's very conditional relationship that we're set area transaction the need. I want you to be like for me if I if maybe the reason you're jobs a joke and you're broke your is that your friends suck I thought about maybe it's hard for me to be there for you. Because as I clearly stated I am broke okay. My job is a joke okay. It has been day by day much less my week much less my year okay sorry. I haven't been there for you. But can you be there for me. Yeah stated that all of those things. I've stayed final. Today's out list an episcopal church is holding holding a Bob Dylan mass this weekend. I guess depending on when you listen to this. It's happening on Sunday. if we recorded this early Friday morning so Christ Episcopal Church of Covington Louisiana the Anna. They're holding what they're calling Bob Dylan Mass it's a tribute mask. It includes meditations as well as performances of classic. Bob Dylan bangers like knocking on have in store the Times. They are a change in forever young Miss Mr Tambourine man and even one one of his Gospel songs called pressing on The director told the Christian Post Dylan is a particularly good choice because of the depth those whose lyrics he said sometimes echoing the profits and empower NASA think more critically about societal in global ills as well as responding to the needs of the world. you know referencing. Dylan's lyrics there yes he did. I mean there are a lot of stuff. Deepen the Dylan catalogue that does seem you know in that prophetic nature I if you you know I mean especially really you know this. This isn't included on on the list there but like if you listen to a song I I saw a take on twitter the other day which was a really interesting. Take by someone who said that Bob Dylan the Bob Dylan Song Hurricane. Wasn't I true crime podcast. If Yeah Yeah sure sure accent if you listen to the song it talks about a a a person of color who's wrongly wrongfully convicted of of a crime and you know sort of everything that transpires after that but he does it in the form of a song that's really interesting but tells an entire narrative but when it's something like that that is Dylan you know I think you could make a case in a way using like sort of a you know when you say kind of prophetic in the Old Testament in the sense sense of knowing something out you know trying to enact change John. What are your thoughts about a Bob Dylan Mass. I don't mind about Dylan Man. I'm a big Big Dylan Fan. Dan Lewis Prize. You say even one of Bob's Gospel songs and it seems like it'd be especially focused on Bob's Gospel. Songs also a little surprised that the inclusion hey mister tambourine man is that song is about grasp but but what I love about you who am I going to judge. Who Am I gonNA judge. What am I. What am I'm not the COPS. Do whatever everyone is in Europe Piscopo churches. I wish I could be there for it. Sounds Cool Yeah Yeah last year Grace Cathedral and fiscal congregation in San Francisco. They held the mask so yeah so it makes sense checks up yeah sure so mine. Are that do it for this. Week's hot list up next social also misfits Bradley would have Brown around said. I thought you meant back at elites jumped into a what cha child please and just say this one do leave. You're listening to bill on the song is hurricane classic. Social Club misfits is a hip hop duo consisting of fern Mardi Mar earlier this year. You may remember they release a collection of songs that was called mood and it was kind of about the positive side of faith it was very upbeat or at least an upbeat collection of songs were they recently they recently released the second half of that album called doom and in in it they wrestle with things like doubt and questions about faith and it's a much darker but a really interesting collection of songs. I was really lakeside to be able to talk to him about the release the songs and kind of what's it like deep diving into kind of the sometimes the darker side of faith and really wrestling things and here's part of my conversation with social carpets. You're welcome you're welcome. Here's another glimpse in life for Mr Sale on the mission. The happen happens so he'd get tell me well secrecy promising but jail. You're welcome to fill in for your soul so we welcome you. Everyone's every was invited to everything on. Hold this season multiplying and if you come to work I want to talk about a couple of tracks in particular but I wanna start art with belief. I think that was the first one I heard from. You know that was a single I yeah so I I research that and you know the irony was I heard the song I loved the song and right around the time you know there are a couple of years. Josh Harris there that worship leader from hill song you know these these guys who are renouncing their faith or if not to the point of renouncing questioning if if they don't even believe it at all and it seemed like all the sudden we were in this moment where people were talking about doubt and they were talking about questioning their faith and they were figuring I it. It seems like right now. A Lotta people are trying to figure out how to talk about that the right way then in this then I hear this song and I'm like I feel like they really kind of get this tension wrestling wrestling with doubts and things you don't understand but choosing to believe so i WanNa Talk I want you. Both you guys. Tell me a little bit about you. Know Your own personal you know experiences experiences with doubt and faith and then how manifested in the song then songs produced by clean and this guy said then it's the first it's on either produced it ever came out on capitol. You know I've been producing. This is what I saw. I saw the axing male. It'd be a part of the record so that you know whenever we spoke about kind of made a mark but I felt like in person when you hear a lot of there's no safe speed talk about your doubt. There's not a thing based assets. I kinda don't know what we or. I don't know look like without feeling like you're totally against Scott. You're like there's no way that you could tell people hey i. I'm struggling. It's that's what happens if those things get worse and worse and worse in the conform for us to just feeling hey thank you know like what is this about and so like for me. I had I've I've had that moment if my personal life where when I left the church for a couple of years I each holy doubted God. I was like what am I doing here. Like what is happening. I just didn't I didn't really know so. Much of everything is done for the last ice cream be like oh crap like nothing and so for me. I feel like I can work with that though and I think it's okay you have those moments for me personally and definitely strengthened my faith and so a lot of I feel like that make it caters did someone who's been hurt by the church or has experience where they just feel is just like you know like I don't know they don't have an open forum to speak and talk. Look for me believe it was important because originally when we made created this song it just ended onto these beliefs but I also wanted to. I wanted to give with a hoax at the end approved ending which teams one of our friends consume on it and just like this is what I wanted to say. I want you to say I believe even though wipe out of place our my God. Where are you white happening. I still know that down in control but I kind of sign this move. You show yourself for various and so for me. I feel like it was like this Peter Paul moment that in in like I remember in the Bible. There's a moment where you know Jeez. It comes in and the disciples are all like you know how to physically Thomas r Kelly God always Judy's always books this evening's wrong for someone who it's catered out and I think that on big outing inevitably leads you back to be suited doubting because I don't believe it because I'm tactic. Every person can say I remember when God should up here so we all have moments to always guys like real this long moment that we're in for me personally. I just felt like this was. It really catered to somebody who's into hurt and somebody who's been situations because I feel like even say Sonos you're probably laughing edit our real direction..

"I think you're wrong. I think uh-huh are extremely if you if you're interested in buying three hundred dollar goop a wheat grass pass those plugs be my guest by. I do think people need to be wary. False sent me then Venema three hundred dollars on L. Sandia Salad and but to your point using the term miraculous as like the the like that is their definition of you know what it what they deemed right and wrong you know is interesting because because I think too because they could have said like unrealistic or yeah fantastical or something but miraculous has specific diffic- religious connotations you know unfounded. Science can't explain this yeah but but not just unbowed and science can't explain this but like when people think of miraculous. I feel like they think of miracles and miracles are I. I would think the most common association with them. Are you a Nieto's faith and so to say that they're going to restrict things if they're make miraculous health claims I'm not saying it's problematic. I'm I'm just saying that's an interesting wrinkle to this story because you know what if and again this maybe I'm being absurdly hypothetical here. You know reading the implications of this. I do feel like the Vagary of social media. Policies has gotten this country and a lot of trouble. You know a I like the same thing is like promoting allowing hate group to exist on your side obviously no not and I'm not trying to equate the two the more severe separately but I do think sometimes social media policies are so vague and you know we'll use words like graphic graphic. You know you know like we we. We have to take something out of his shows like graphic violence or jury and that's some some of those terms are subjective subjective. You know like it does a movie trailer. Seem like I could see a fast and furious movie trailer or guys were the rock. Is You know throwing henchmen through the window and I have no idea if they lived or died an graphic violence you know or or other people wouldn't and it just seems like miraculous. Miraculously is not always objective but it's subjective with religious implications like what if what if a church said you know you was talking not necessarily a product they're selling it could be but something that you know. They deemed like supernatural miraculous. I just feel like that term could lead to some unintended did results. I duNNo. I hear what you're sitting here what you're saying and I think it sounds like you're a little bit feeling a little confused feeling a little anxious about all of this and I'd like to tell you that if that's how you're feeling I'd I'd like to invite you for a mere nine. Hundred Ninety nine subscribe to doctors told me to tell you about the doctors. Don't want me to tell you about this. You're not gonNA hear about this from the big mouth.

The Joe here put so profound like did you ever do that job when you're in a Mall Fountain Fountain or something or detergent and like all at the same kids I read about a story. Maybe I'm maybe I'm like miss.. M- remembering it but because years ago I was like well. This escalated quickly put in the city of reservoir. which is you know like? What's the prank? Will everyone water say soapy. I think they were charged with domestic terrorism like you cannot while never put stuff in the city water supply. That's okay no matter what group is saying so anyway onto onto the next story this week. A trailer was released for a Christian fantasy movie called Heaven Quest. Okay so here you know it's it's released released by a King Street pictures and the film having quest is inspired by the classic Christian novel. If you grew up in a Christian home you even have ready. You have some probably awareness of it. It was written what in the sixteen hundred dollars a pill yeah. It's old bunion right Johnny the Jonbenet right now John Bunyan's. It's a classic story that a lot of people Christian kids will read from the sixteen hundred so I'm going to read the official Synopsis Us in Tyler. You Watch the trailer this week. Did you watch the trailer per. I couldn't not with a name like heaven quest. What was I supposed to do and it's very cool very cool name all right. I'm GonNa read the this is the official synopsis. Okay a regal man named Bangel is thrust on a journey against his will when he is suddenly and mysteriously arrested injured and loss after escaping the darks the Dr King's men Vangla begins to have strange dreams and visions of mysterious woman in white calling him from the the unknown territory of the North armed with a book called the record of ancients that he receives from a wise sage name elder Vangla embarks on an adventure that takes him through the treacherous mountain range underneath desert's the lake of doubts and the forest of no return along the way travel companions share about his fabled able good king and his son in the north if he can make it there alive for as ambitious as that plots synopsis because there's a lot happening. which way do you think you? I think I'm the forest of forgotten dribs and that right up. Which one would you tag yourself under the lighter. I mean honestly I can consider myself the ultimate hero so obvious and I have a lot of weird dreams to life go on for as ambitious the plot sounded and this is like a faith based movie I was actually from the trailer which was released and you can watch this week at relevant magazine. Dot Com I was I was Kinda surprised that the production value I thought I was actually impressed by it like it looked surprisingly good from production value standpoint and I thought I almost had Zack Snyder three hundred type vibe to it what were Deli- looked a little a little three hundred indebted definitely was was you you know it. I wouldn't put it quite like why I don't think it was ready for the big leagues at Hollywood but it was definitely a cut above we've seen worse Christian movie trailers ars while long shot by I will be I. There's no way I'm not seeing this movie regardless because I think it's a sort of big swing. I mean that's either going to be very entertaining very entertaining either way right. I know I that's the thing man I when I wash it because I I. It's awesome awesome name. Heaven quest and pilgrim's progress is like I remember like looking at I haven't read Pilgrim's progress in years but I remember as a kid but say you know that was back. When a time it was like the Hansel and like Hans Christian Andersen that's that's. Who did you know where they were stories where you know the the villain. It wasn't like you know villains these days. Where you know if you're watching an episode like Paul Patrol with with with seven year olds villain wants to ruin the town marching parade kittens in the front instead of puppies right. I yeah that's that's how villainous it gets for kids children's programming then literally there was a time when they would write children's book and it was like no she's. She's putting children order in an oven progress. It'll be like it's pretty scary man. This is this is legit you know so. I think it was cool because they're you know when you're a kid. There was so many in the household I grew up and there's so much media wasn't allowed to consume but totems progress kind of had had it all you had you had like big cool fights a lot of the analogies in retrospect pretty on the nose the boggles of doubt that I get I know where we're going and I believe a I can't remember the name of the actual character the of tugs progress it might have been Christian yeah. I think it is like yeah so yeah I would say yeah the symbolism maybe left a little bit to be desired but you can't accuse it of again being a big swathe and I'm all about big swings and my and my consumption so obviously it okay go well. It's got having question sugar the trailer irrelevant dot Com it hits like digital platforms on October Twenty Fifth Okay and other movie news. This one has is kind of news but it also ties into a social issue. That's why I want to bring into the table. Aurora shooting survivors are are asking the joker movie team team to lobby for gun reform. So you know Todd Phillips Joker movie. is coming soon to theaters and is it coming this weekend tyler. I believe next okay so it's coming next week in theaters and so if early reviews are an played a lot of film festivals about in the trailer you kind of get the basic vibes of it which it's not like the old like Jack Nicholson cartoony joker right by Joaquin Phoenix who is an incredible actor but he he certainly has a way of making his character seem very unsettling when he wants to plays what appears appears to be a social outcast. It's like a joker or origin story he some manner of social outcasts and he you know uses a disguise in a persona. Zona and ultimately from what early reviews are saying acts of domestic terrorism to kind of get some sort of social revenge tyler it from what you've read about the movie so far you know you're pretty plugged into the comic book world. That's does that seem pretty accurate description. That's that's my understand again. I haven't seen seen it yet obviously but it does sound like the people who have seen it It's gotten some very good reviews. I it's got some good reviews. I think everybody seems to be on the same page about this performance performance that that saying that he's doing a very good job in it and that it's in general a very unsettling movie yeah while some people may remember back to two thousand twelve well about a tragedy that occurred at a movie theater in Aurora Colorado when a gunman left twelve people dead and seventy injured that shooting being that mass shooting actually took place on opening night at a screening of the Dark Knight Rises Christopher Nolan's Batman Movie and you know the shooter had dyed his hair you know colorfully and you know had did their this association between Wean Him and and the joker character sort of developed and really tragic and terrible way survivors and family members of victims of that shooting eating they've sent a letter to Warner Brothers that share some of their concerns about the movie and they're actually asking that the studio Linda's voice to push for some sort of gun control reform. Here's what they said in a letter that was received by the Hollywood reporter and was signed by five family members of victims. it says we are calling on you to be a part of the growing chorus of corporate leaders who understands that they have a social responsibility to keep us all safe the letter goes on to to say that the shooting was perpetrated by a socially isolated individual who felt wronged by society and acted they continued as a result. We have committed ourselves to insuring that. No other family has to growth go through the absolute. Hell we have experienced and the pain. We continue to live with trust us. It does not go away. you know the signers of the letter express that they were concerned that the movie could inspire copycats who you know would would carry out some sort of horrific attack on Tuesday Warner Brothers released a statement and here's what they said gun violence in our society is the critical issue and we extend our deepest sympathy to all victims and families impacted by these tragedies. Our company has a long history of donating victims of violence including Aurora and in in recent weeks. Our parent company joined other business leaders call policymakers to enact bipartisan legislation to address this epidemic at the same time. one or others believes that one one of the functions of storytelling is to provoke difficult conversations around complex issues century Aurora and X. D. which the name of the theater where the shooting took place in Aurora back in two thousand twelve they will not be screening the the new joker fell metal. There's a lot to unpack with this one. I don't want you know I'm kind of interested in your take on this story because it not only ties into a film that you know seemingly attempting to say some provocative things but it ties back to a real life tragedy in in an issue yeah in gun violence that were still grappling with how to deal with for your thoughts siler well. I've got a few I've thought about this a lot and like you said I do like these. Comic Book Movies grew up with comic comic books and so I still like a lot of films. I think it's important to know what the statement from the family's isn't doing. They're not saying don't release the movie. They're not. They're not going to say more brother shouldn't do this to saying in addition to doing this. Can you also make sure that you're using your your poll your platform to advocate for for for gun law reform in this country very responsible thing to You know this isn't censorship. This isn't them yeah they're not. They're not pushing out saying. Don't make this or this saying in addition making this. Can you also take some responsibility for the ways that we as a culture do glorify violence and a lot of times and ended this movie. I it well before. I say that I think the interesting thing about this is. I think it's amazing how much discourse there has been about it before. Anybody has really seen this premiered at Toronto Film Festival. Those people side but we a lot of people are talking about it. Botha saying it shouldn't be.

The police came in and discovered bodies buried in shallow graves but by then while bill and his wife were already on the run they fled through Costa Rica and we're finally captured on the Nicaraguan border join us at the quiet end for this stunning tale of theft murder in real estate ate fried after being extradited to Panama while bill confessed to his crimes but showed little remorse for all of the painting caused he would explain in what he did in how he did it but the question of why will forever haunt the left one of his victims so this is my first Panamanian Indian dear our first enemy case I believe absolutely so this is Bell Boa. It's brewed by service Syria Nacional in in Panama kind of the National Bureau of Panama and I'll preface by sands a pretty crappy year okay but the the good news it doesn't have much aroma or taste kind of sweet corn malt that type of stuff may do little herbal but the important thing it served cold and it's nice and Crisp and refreshing. If you've ever been the Panama it's pretty damn hot and humid down there so these these little buddy sled down pretty nicely I nine guess that's about the best I can say for it. Well thanks for the effort recalled science all right thank you. Let's open it up okay. We'll share these the quiet the head end. I hope everybody's not to spoil my some of the other good beers we've had because this isn't what you call good beer but it is sunny and warm. Maybe not as humid as Panama you're so they'll probably be enjoyed in well. It seems like if a beer is not great to get a cold enough. It can still be refreshing and be salvaged for that purpose if nothing else that's what we're looking for. What are you start our story today Dickie Okay so William Jason Hobart was an only child he grew up going going by his middle name Davidson but later in life Hugo by bill his father worked for Farm Machinery Company and he grew up in a nice two story home an highschool bill involved in sports and got very serious about football and bulked up possibly with steroids who knows he married his girlfriend in nineteen ninety eight? Her name was Ryan Dunlap his only eighteen years old they had their first child within a year and into more over the next four years so bill worked as a landscaper year round and Ryan stayed home with children. There were so young and many people were impressed by the amount of responsibility that the couple seemed of taking nine after bills parents divorced the couple move their family into the home or bill grownup taking over the home from his mother but there was talk about building a steroid abuser and again. This is a kid who booked up quite a bit in high school always playing football so that's where the rumors started and they continue and bill seemed abnormally bulky and had a temper those steroid rages we talk about the first sign that may bill wasn't quite right psychologically was when the family dog disappeared bill told Ryan that he wanted to put the dog down even even though his perfectly healthy and good with the kids he never contacted the vet and Ryan believe that shot the dog and dumped his body and this became a belief that was shared throughout the neighborhood. Another local landscaper would say that bill wanted to make a fortune but he didn't want to work for it. That's been my dream. Let's not that uncommon right you wanNA start a business. You do have to be willing to work your ass off what yeah back so inevitably bills landscaping business failed Oh he buttons Elson suits and ties after that and he said that he had political aspirations I don't know where that came from and wanted to hang out with a higher society church even considered running for mayor right but France were beginning to notice that bill was very verbally abusive to Ryan and then another dog disappeared food bill opened a pool hall and build a local TV ad for it but he was really this over the top personality which he is pretty well for whereas business but still he wasn't putting in the hard work and it failed after only a few months in two thousand three Rian Kevin Hoover met bill when he joined the Gym Jim The bodyshop fitness center in Hendersonville Billy Kevin began hanging out together lifting weights working out and bill give them the impression that he was a businessman on his way up even though his ventures were continuing to fail when Kevin Hoover his third bodyshop Jim in two thousand four he he agreed to let bill help manage it so bill could learn about how to run a business. He would even get a salary until he was ready to purchase his own franchise. So these people took command basically yes pretty good con man Dick so he could convince people of things yeah. They were thinking they were going to groom him to eventually have zone franchise. Yes they were helping him out that way twenty year old Laura Michelle Reese was working for the hoover's and she was doing cleaning and light office work at the Gyms uh-huh and Mel decided that he keeper working with him the Third Jim but then things got really weird. Marie Hoover visited the gym and saw that there was no equipment you purchased yet and bill at least an apartment near the gym rather than commute to his family home which was just about forty five minutes away not a horrible commute but then he moved in with Laura Michelle Reese into the apartment then he began sending handwritten notes to Marie telling her to be proud of her white race she threw them away but it did raise some concerns and she talked to her husband Kevin about it bill was also somewhat obsessed with the Sopranos TV show and he would tell Marie that he wanted to become someone like Tony Soprano so kind of a Mafia guy yeah. That's that's a very good aspiration to have. Don't you think so red flag huge yeah yeah so Kevin. Marie managed to explain away bills odd behavior until they were from the bank that some unusual expenses were being charged for the body shop. The bill was Managing Bill had written business checks for new TV a mattress and other not business related items in the amount spent was large. It was be tweeting twenty and twenty five thousand dollars so Kevin did confront bill about this and Bill's wife Ryan found out that bill was is living with Laura Michelle reese around the same time so the couple separated in May of two thousand four and bill. Laura moved away after he was gone. The hoovers learned that bill had not only written unauthorized checks he'd actually contacted a real estate broker about selling Jim that he'd been managing which belonged to Kevin Hoover Hoover so that's the ball there to do that where I guess but he's learning right in a bad way here yeah

"I definitely want to get to how you pick these spots because there's from my rough count about nine the given so we're going to get there i promise <hes> but the last bit of that definition architecturally interesting what does that mean in a what elements of design zayn make a course interesting totally and what a subjective category this is i mean we kind of see discourses and in a few different different lights one would be a lot of them are golden age courses and like pre1933 nineteen forty and there's just a certain quirk and charm that goes along with courses horses milton this time they you know pre industrial pre machinery <hes> and a lot of pan tan sculpting and horse drawn plows and what have you and and i think what that leaves behind these really charming funky interesting courses and a lot of tracks on our map are designed by golden age architects roster roster attila s <hes> and and it's without fail <hes> it's one of those types of guys touched it and usually it's still before nineteen thirty. There's going to be something architecturally architecturally intriguing or interesting or different or funky about it <hes> and then look into the to the modern age. There's there's a lot of cool interesting things built in the last twenty five years. I mean world words and florida. Tom fazio public super super interesting like the poor man's pine valley <hes> <hes> so you know it's it's a really broad question but <hes> it is definitely the eye of the beholder but were looking for you know funk template holes you know just vintage oddness <hes> and kind of modern like different nece in that that kind of funneled into what we consider architecturally actually interesting. That's that's awesome so when you say funk in oddness <hes> when i say those two words what are some holes or courses that it come to your mind almost right away. Are there any yeah i mean go back to one of our favorites achon golf club <hes> north of augusta there. <hes> you know it's fifty eight hundred yards <hes> double green scott you know in maine there there. There's you know a handful of really cool courses that are par sixty eight sixty nine <hes> and then just kind of weird. Just the these folks were building courses one hundred years ago like you know there. There wasn't really a grand template out there and sometimes that resulted in some awesome like beautiful mistakes. I guess <hes> there's a cool course called gaylon all in the middle of pennsylvania signed by telling us that has an island green who knows how old that thing that's just just totally totally odd <hes> so again in the in the eye of the beholder but you know when when you see it you know it and just just charm in patina basically beautiful so i was looking at your map of hidden gems. I counted about ninety courses. I'm i might have miscounted but it's around there <hes>. How did you find these courses. I see below the map on your site. There is a place for people to submit entries but what's that process like of going through those entries accepting entry you know is there and characteristic that they all all having common deadly. I mean there's there's kind of a few ways that these courses out here. <hes> a a a handful them we have we have played prior to building building this map in two thousand fifteen two thousand six like keeney park <hes> la sonia up and <hes> and rang slow outside of chicago. These are thought we'd we visited many times and really kind of were like if we ever put together a list. These are definitely all stars <hes> and then you as as we left our jobs on capitol l. and have dovan to shirlow fulltime. I mean we've we've been working up to travel across the country and we kind of just stumble accidentally on some cool courses like there's there's a municipal course coming back from augusta north called dylan muny and it's right where that south of the border like weird gas station accident. It's just like cool little all forgotten gem <hes> little country club <hes> outside of billy incredible ross quartz. We were playing a course next door. Look like what is that so we went over there in the afternoon afternoon. Play that place pox the bar when you're headed out to montauk on long island summer just see these places you know like okay we have to try these these these just look incredibly interesting <hes> and then the other ways i mean we've dedicated trips to like seeking out these spots so we've gone who spent almost a week in maine and a week in in western pennsylvania this summer <hes> and those adventures always start with me on google earth just combing the landscape jumping to ask you because yes. I'm sure you know how do i find these hidden gems gic yet hours and hours on google earth and we've developed kind of mccain. I like alex alex cool and then do some research on it. Oh wow like that is a styles and ben quick course and who knew and we have to it so <hes> and then of course yeah folks always are submitting interesting ideas and <hes> we personally love to like i would love to see all these places <hes> but i'll usually you know once once. I got a good feeling on a spot. That's recommended. I'll ask my buddies. Maybe in the area who played the course kind of get a consensus like okay this is <music> on on brand on taste for us and makes them out that kind of reminds me that the july issue who of golf magazine included huge feature about sugarloaf and what you guys are doing and i really enjoyed the read. I know josh sense did a great job rob with that and one of the things that he was saying was that you to you in harrison are really kind of using new mediums like instagram and just the digital world to push this retro message and this message that going back to golf's routes is is fun and like should be celebrated and was forgotten for a little bit but now is kind of making <hes> it's emerging urging again and what do you attribute that to what certain courses are doing like sweden's cove and you know these par-three courses that are popping up around some really great resorts in america or is it a mix of that with people who are like minded like you guys is and this group that you've kind of collected to really push that message or did one come before the other or that's a great question i when i look at this movement and this is definitely a long conversation like i think you can't start this conversation without talking about abandons mike kaiser and bandon preserved so that really was like this lightning bolt moment for me. That golf doesn't have to be eighteen holes with it can be thirteen. It can be all all part threes. You can have a sixty yard par three and it's like the coolest hole in the world's <hes> i'm in that that kind of you know my kaiser man of great taste and of course <hes> a true historian in the gulf world himself in <hes> looking you know that got me thinking and that's thinking like there are so many interesting little old courses that are now public and should should kind of have their day and let's let's highlight them a little bit and concurrently i think tastes and attitudes towards these types of courses are changing. I and i would like to think we're definitely a little bit part of that narrative. <hes> wherein you can play pinehurst number two you know in the morning and then go to the cradle afternoon. Enjoy both equally you don't look down upon one over the other or put one on a pedestal you know gulf gulf can be can be a par sixty seven four thousand thousand yards it can. It can be a really stern test. It can be a putt putt course crazy putting green and i think it's really cool that folks are investing in were really again probably just scratched the surface and in the golf industry in terms of like what what is coming next. I mean there's going to be i'm guessing tons runs. More sweetens co type cool spots that are in the middle of nowhere and nine holes in worth. You know dr overnight to see it. <hes> and resorts are going to continually newly probably add par-three courses. I think the greenbriar added a cool par three course just last summer <hes> so i think you know she attitudes either changing think having something being a part of this movements that shows hey i get it and i can appreciate the taco truck and the michelin star a restaurant in her. Both awesome is powerful in one day. Yes that's really cool. It's a cool analogy <hes> so i know you mentioned in some courses by name the a few minutes ago <hes> but if i asked you to spotlight three courses in particular that are listed on your map of hidden gems. Which ones would you throw that on yeah. I mean i can definitely up there but since we really kind of wrapped about that let's let's just not how we say ravage slow in chicago. One of my favorite dolorous used to be private and is now just one of the coolest public tracks you can you can play at he's got his grand old clubhouse and feel like you're at a private club but it's super affordable and part of classic americana ask golf history three in this industrial town really love that spot gray kinds like forty two seventy two bucks yup exactly donald ross. Yes it is it's it's one of my favorite <hes> and the other two. I mean one that totally stands out to me is vista links. It's a modern horse. It's it's in the middle of nowhere. <hes> virginia tucked into the blue ridge. It's basically like a links course on the side of a mountain in it's just it's it's beautiful went cheap and wild and scruffy anders dilapidated farm houses and exposed rock cropping in its just accidentally a really cool design nine <hes> saying it's so much fun and it's beautiful and they they don't allies places. They don't know that they're they're just in their own little bubble middle. They don't quite know how cool they are. Yeah <hes> so five to fifty five bucks so so yeah in a real l. sense of humor there and it's just it's that they haven't changed the blatas out of the cabinet you now since the early nineties is just fantastic. Yeah <hes> and i would say one of my other other favorite that we just explored this year was norte even golf club. It's nine holder designed by william styles. One of the great underrated golden age architects milton nineteen sixteen sixteen in it's. It's on an island off the coast of maine. It's like a two hour ferry to get there and it's just rustic in wonderful and it hasn't been touched in one hundred years ears and it's got hold on ocean and cool tee boxes on top of granite boulders and it's just relaxing charming in an unassuming and it's on this island that you know it's a place for wealthy families and locher main to just kind of stay off the grid but the golf course reflects that that that vibe it's super high quality tons of patina and it's untouched and really really a special day very cool so if there was one quality not that you could cite as almost always ruining a golf course early experience. What would you say that might be sure. I mean it to to me. It's conditioning or even the like the quality of the architecture. It's always about the vibe for remains <hes> if you're treated when you walk in the pro shop like one of the locals and it's just no big deal and they don't have to tell you one hundred roles and they they trust you and turn you have respect for their place and you you feel like you've been coming here. All your life like that's that's the ideal ideal by and just to be almost left alone once you're on your adventure in the course <hes> so you you know hawkish rangers or pretension or what are you doing here. You're not from around here or displaces so special. Let's make you. I feel like your less than worthy of being here. I mean those are things that that route and i think that's probably a unilateral statement across all like minded friends of arse yeah. No one wants to confront that at all in any aspect of life does and if there were just wrapping this up if there were three things that you wish more golfers did more often when they they do t- that <hes> <hes> what would you say those are in other words. Are there things that you do. You really find joy from <hes>. When you play golf that you might not see your friends or others do yeah <hes>. I you know i'm always pushing this idea that just just drive another thirty forty eight minutes an hour or two to play someplace you've never seen before and they individuals nine hole like you know it's of course two minutes away but it's eighteen holes and super super expensive and it's going to be really slow around. Wouldn't you rather have just driven another hour in play a country nine older and is that a different experience if you're if you have t see time at let's say <unk> more established.

Now the wing offers co working features, tailored, specifically to women that includes offices that are, you know, warm enough cafes lactation rooms, Instagram worthy common spaces, and frequent networking events, but the facilities aren't the real draw. The wing is heavily marketing itself as a social club, dedicated to women's empowerment, it's even inked and agreement with time's up, the nonprofit devoted to safety and equity for working women. The wing is community first office space second founded in twenty sixteen. The wing has raised more than one hundred million dollars. That's a huge amount of the new women's co working market, but it's a far cry from we work, which is set to go public soon. We works owner sports controversial valuation of almost fifty billion dollars. If that sounds like a tough rivalry will look under the covers and you'll see that we work is a wing investor the company's hedging its bets, don't, you know, projecting that demand for women.

The wing was sued for gender discrimination, and with membership starting around two thousand dollars a year. It's also been the object of criticism that it's designed primarily for. Affluent women, while the wing may be grabbing attention in the market. It is by no means the clear winner. In addition to battling with the Riveter, it's also competing with growing numbers of smaller local women's co working businesses, especially in trendy cities like Los Angeles.

Like, what are you doing gears them saying, so it's like the flex just shows up differently out, which again, the bigger conversation is one thing actually. Yeah. Going to Sern that from an Instagram post. That's clearly designed I'm like you. You're trying to shame them trying to have a conversation. You verse with feathers hanging off that are connected with a gold ring and tiger. Seem like a flex. On this day. Look ridiculous. Shoes. Joke. Those are objectively ridiculous. I feel like I would want to personally like chat like if I was like ridge Wilkinson's friend be like, hey, you don't okay, let's talk about this like, but you know, what? I mean, like, I think it's worth having the conversation. The problem to me with this is the public shaming piece to it. Yes. 'cause like every it's like if let's say worst case scenario, they're they're using the church budget to create a clothing budget, and they are spending a thousand dollars out of a single moms ties to buy those shoes. Right. That's our worst case scenario. It's shocking. Right. And by the way, a lot of your pastors have church, clothing budgets, even if you think that don't like their little tiny churches in Orlando that I know about where there's a clothing budget. So that the church the pastor cool. So like don't say this ear even cool is even a bit of shaming language. It's not cool. So that he has stayed close. So that he looks appropriate as a teacher this pastor wants to. But yes, I know what you're saying in your right? So like, I don't come on here and have an anti shaming conversation. When you're using shape is Shane like show pictures of people that they've entered hosted from their own. Instagram's like is that shame like, you know. I I don't know. I made Made you. you in the clothing budget IVA clothing budget for stage. Clothes. I absolutely do. Granted people would say, I'm not a pastor. Right. Right. Right. So that's what I'm saying. So what I'm saying? Is you can't discern that from this in a sense that a person puts up something on their Instagram? Of course, you're open to critique. But the part that bothers me the part that I like I related to is. Of course. It's like I personally. Yeah. I don't see any purpose. I'm not a sneaker hit. So it's like I'd spend my money different ways. There are seventeen bags of coffee that I'll never finish in my house right now saying, so I spend money other ways. But what the thing to me is that. You you you if you do it in a way that that the purse there's enough ambiguity to be like, I don't what do you mean shaming? I'm just they put this on the thing you draw your own conclusion. These are just prices. Who knows what they're doing out? You mad, bro. Why are you mad you put it? So to me, it's like that. Because I guess because I've been the victim of that to where you could just kinda just I'm just saying that's just what you said so dry your Oakley undecided. Man. Look. Okay. If you wanna have this conversation like come up come up from behind this like anonymous Graham and just say aids unison him saying just speak up in. If you wanna talk about it talk about it unison. I'm saying to me that that's the part. That's bothersome. It's not so much the bigger conversation, which of course, should absolutely happen. And I'm like, and how all of us got blood on our hands. Just this idea of Justice. Sumer ISM the celebrity like we it's us calling him celebrities. They they himself. So we call him. Celebrities. Get 'em saying we've made them that. You know, these people got TV shows you do Bill by who told him to get TV show. Somebody offered it to him. So what I'm saying is like we made them celebrities.

"Social club misfits, just released a brand new EP called mood which serves as one half of their upcoming album, which explores the full spectrum of a relationship with God from good seasons to ones of struggle, and difficulty. We recently spoke with the rap duo which made a fern Marty mar about the vision behind the new project, and how they hope it will impact listeners. I'm a huge fan of social misfits and love this AP Jesse. You talked to him tell us about it. Yeah. It was really cool to kinda here hear their heart behind the album because they actually had a full album complete that they decided this isn't what we wanna do. We want to do something that's more transparent and really is kind of owner -able and open about the good side. And also the bad side of relationship with God. And so I wanted I asked him about that why they wanted to do something that represents that spectrum in. Here's what they said we want to be able to with this next project is create a full. Spectrum of a high in the MO of any relationship, so mood speaking that seems like you know, you're in the mountain top. You're you're you're the valley or you're in the inbetween and a matter where you are God will meet you in that season that you're one thing that they talked about is, you know, the reason they kind of the inspiration for this album to talk about the high and also talk about the lows was they were looking at their own career. You know, they've had a couple of successful albums. They've gotten, you know, success on mainstream charts, you know, they were on the breakfast club. But they're also or blowing up in kind of like more traditional Christian music scene. So they won this award which to them was a really big deal because it kind of show that they had crossover success and kind of credibility. But right after they right after that happened like a bunch of stuff that are falling through for them. They're a and r person left. They got a couple tours that they were planning on going on. Fell through and it kind of caused them to reexamine their motivations which were really kind of centered around some of these big. You know, you know, typical success metrics. And so here's here's what they said about kind of reexamining that almost like come into a crossroads of saying, hey, you know, piggybacking off the dubs to tweet like, you know, you would think that that would change a conversation just on paper. But then you come to a crossroads after winning some accolade that the getting on some lists out the getting the couple of wards here. And there where you have to think if this you're doing firm Lord doing for athletes for this really passion in your heart is something burning in your heart for these kids for these people were saying that being out by these songs me and Martin lapis stare at each other and say, hey, man, is it is it's doing why are we doing if we said, you know, what we know why we're doing it for and you know, the Lord vaguely spoken to in that season. I lost three family members mourn had ongoing through cancer at the time to the Marjory stoneman Douglas shooting had just had heat that's hit on the modern with a lot of different things that are going on kind of trying to shake our position.

"social club" Discussed on No Man's Land by The Wing
"In Washington DC social clubs had access to the seat of power. She made sure she kept in touch with the leaders of this country. So she would meet with the president. That's Dr Arthur Elda Bush Williams. A lifelong club women in currently the historian of the national association of colored women's clubs whose membership rules read like a who's who women's history. Our bullishness suffer just activists educators humanitarian title be wills, of course. And Harriet Tubman one of the oldest members at the time that we were already nice. We also have married Mikhail within we have married church Terrel, some of the women, Dr Williams named may be familiar to you. We covered item e walls in our third episode. But I'm guessing Dr Rosa, Greg is not she was the six. Eighteenth president of the national association of colored women's clubs Inc. And at the time, our Arkan is Asian had as many as one hundred thousand women, I didn't know who Dr Greg was until I was at the JFK presidential library and museum in Boston. And I noticed this woman in a famous photo. But I never realized it featured more than a few men because as it's true is so much of women's history. Dr Greg is almost always cut out of the picture. And I almost always see it us as close crop on M L K RFK LBJ literally right behind his Martin Luther King shoulder is Dr Greg that Stacey Chandler archivists at the JFK library. She standing right there in this mazing hat, and she is just looking direct at the camera participating in these really significant moments. Dr Greg was an adviser to three precedents. She's the civil rights heavy. Hitter. You've never heard of there's not a single biography on her. There should be many highlighting moves like this one in August of nineteen sixty two Dr Greg and other members of the national association of colored women's clubs arrived at the White House with a gift for JFK a portrait of ABRAHAM LINCOLN that had been hanging in Frederick Douglass this house which organization help support since nineteen sixteen. What I am really moved. By is the fact that are women are so dignified, and they appear that way they have on their white gloves their heads, and they know that this is a significant event, and they're extremely proud to be a part of it. Dr Williams, it's ascribing a gorgeous photo of Dr Greg and her fellow club women in Oval Office percenting JFK with the Lincoln portrait. And you'll see that Kennedy is standing there. And Rosa Greg is really smiling at him with a lot of enthusiasm and pride. Dr. Greg knew exactly what she was steering. The timing of the gift was not accident. A Bill was moving through congress to declare the Frederick Douglass house a national historic site. Once it's introduced she starts lobbying for it like crazy. So she goes to congress. She tells them you could do no greater service to humanity or pay greater tribute to our race than to accept this noble. End generous gift which I think is great. If the Bill passed, the Frederick Douglass house home to a man who was born into slavery and went on to become one of the most famous abolitionists in American history would join the ranks of the liberty bell the door. Roosevelt's birthplace. The tenement museum JFK signs.

Midterm Elections: White Supremacy Rearing Its Ugly Head
"Going into the midterm elections has been the possibility of a Blue Wave a democratic upsurge. That's notable for the number of women running and for progressive candidates. Like beta roar can Texas and Alexandria, Cossio Cortez in New York. But another story in this election is the very opposite. The candidates were running as extremists on the right openly. White supremacist candidates even Neo Nazis. Andrew Miranda has been covering the movement known as the old, right? And he's watching how it influences. Mainstream politics. Andrew you've been reporting on the fringes of right wing, nationalism, and all the associated movements people like, Mike, sir. For example, who was involved in pizza gate, and you've also written about the Nazi website daily Stormer, which is built on Nazi Lor. We've seen a lot of this on the internet. But it's been many years since really far, right? White supremacists. Have been running for office in the United States of America. When did this all star, what are the origins of it? It's never really not existed. But in terms of the most recent resurgence of it, you know, Trump has a lot to do with it. I mean there there's always been dog. Whistle politics. Right. And we should definitely note that democr-. Rats have engaged Republicans have engaged in it. But it's not even really a dog whistle anymore. It's kinda just a whistle. You know, there's there's there's more and more openness with people just espousing white, nationalist views, and that has a lot to do with Trump. Well, people would point out that when Ronald Reagan was first campaigning for president. He campaigned and give a big speech in the show becoming Mississippi. And he talked there about nothing less than state's rights. And this was at the very least a dog whistle to the far. Right. Is that something different? And why because he vociferously tonight it when people asked him, he said states rights doesn't mean that when people ask Nixon, what do you mean by silent majority? What do you mean by law and order he vociferously denied it? They're not really denying it anymore. So people like, you know, Steve king who is a congressman in Iowa. He's not flirting with the line. He he doesn't believe that these lines should exist. So what is what does Steve king's history? What is he said and done? So Steve king is a congressman from Iowa. He's represented the western part of Iowa for fifteen years at this point. He's running for re election in November. And he he's very clearly into a dog. Whistle racism. He talks a lot about western civilization and European heritage. And that kind of stuff, but he always in the past would leave some plausible deniability, and then just in the last couple of years, partly because of Trump and partly because he has a Twitter account. He has been saying things like demographics are Estany. And then he says we can't restore our civilization with someone else's babies. There's no way to read that that doesn't take our civilization to mean, white people. There's no plausible reading of it other than a white nationalist reading does he deny? Well, not really. I mean, he kind of gets called to the mat and says, no, I don't regret saying that he doesn't take down tweets. He doesn't delete them. He kinda says, oh, this, you know, PC culture. Everybody gets called racist. All the time. You know, you guys are always Pearl clutching and stuff, but he never walks back. The actual substance nor does he ever like explain how that could mean anything other than white nationalism. Well, let's talk about what? We're talking about. Let's listen to one of Stephen king's statements about diversity. This is from an interview that he gave to an Iowa radio program. And when you start accentuating the differences, then you end up with people that are at each other's throats as adding up as fantastic than black, and he predicts will be in greater numbers than whites in America. I will predict Hispanic than the black will be fighting each other before that what do you make of that? I mean, there are there are much more extreme examples of his rhetoric than that. But basically, it's that's kind of a turning the tables of saying by talking about, you know, the black voting block or the Hispanic voting block anyone doing that. Is there for the racist? Paul Ryan speaker of the house was asked where do you stand on this, and he waits three days or something? And then I forget how long awaited buddy, Paul Ryan puts out this very carefully worded statement doesn't mention Steve king's name at all that just says we have horror racism, so in other words, it's not like he's such an outlier that the rest. Of the GOP can very comfortably wash their hands of him and say, he's not our guy. He is their guy. They're not pulling funding from him. At least not in the way that they're making public to what does it suggest about American politics that the most powerful leader and one of the houses of congress Paul Ryan feel that cannot afford to reject somebody like king. It's terrifying. It's yeah. It means that they've read the tea leaves. And they know that this is too big a part of their support based to give up on you've spent the last year marinating in the juices of what one could call a cyber fascist. Fortunately, talking to a lot of people who are the very most active players invoices in what you're calling fascism. And what does it tell you about American political life? Look, I think it's not that everything has utterly transformed. And you know, we weren't we weren't close to the brink. And now we are. I mean, we're closer now for sure, but. What is the brink? Well, it can't happen here. You know, that notion that you know, fascism could have happened in Europe. But it can't happen here. I think we're now all starting to see that there's no law of nature that says that that walls off the United States. Yeah. We we are an extremely flawed society with a extremely dicey racial history that perhaps uniquely so among the countries, we're talking about democracy is a very delicate tricky thing, right. If Steve king is now going out there and just essentially saying to the people of Iowa Hello. I'm a white nationalist. Do you want to vote for me or do you want to vote for the other guy? There's no guarantee that they want to vote for the other guy. Well, let's talk about the other guy his opponent kings opponent is a democrat. Former baseball player named JD Scholten the Shelton had chance, and what are the dynamics of that race look like he's much taller. So that's generally, a good thing in politics. He's six six and he's driving around the district in a winnebago and shaking. Everyone's hand and being very folksy. He's out fundraising king. He still down in the polls. I mean incumbency is a very powerful thing in house elections and king has been there for six terms. What's the district? Thank it's deep deep Brad as they say and king, you know, it's it's you might not know this from looking at his Twitter feed. But racism is not his only thing, you know, he also wants ethanol subsidies. And he also says he wants to support farmers now. He's been in congress for fifteen years. He has sponsored exactly one Bill that passed which was to rename a post office in Iowa. So he's not the most effective legislator. Now that we live in the age of Trump are there new politicians on the scene who seemed to be entering the stage or coming onto the stage in a way, they might not have before. Yeah. I think someone like Corey Stewart he was someone who the Virginia GOP just thought would fizzle out and he's running for Senate. He's running for Senate against him. Cain who will probably win. But you know, what's his level of support? He's doing better than one would expect. I mean, he he won the primary and his whole national image is based on being standing up for these confederate monuments. We can't tear them down. There are heritage. He was born and raised in Duluth Minnesota. So not the heart in the heart of the confederacy Steve king, by the way used to have a confederate flag on his desk in the capitol building, which by the way, Iowa sent a lot of soldiers today to fight against the confederacy. So it's like, gee, I wonder what that flag means to you. In New Jersey in the state of New Jersey, New Jersey, congressman Seth Grossman was dropped by the Republican party. After saying the diversity is crap. Is that an outlier incident is at a very rare instance of the of the party standing up to some of its extremists voices. Yeah. I think he I think the Seth Grossman thing was a bit of an anomaly. I mean, you have even more anomalous cases than that. You have a guy named Arthur Jones in Illinois who is literally a Nazi who stands in front of Nazi flags and give speeches and he won a GOP primary in a district where it's heavily democratic. And so they don't bother to run a lot of Republicans in these in these racist. So he's not going to win the general election. It's very scary that a literal Nazir's is running for office in Illinois, and that and that this guy Grossman is running for office in New Jersey. But those are outliers. I mean, so I don't want to paint the picture that, you know, this is happening everywhere all the time. But again the fact that someone like Seth Grossman in New Jersey in New Jersey. Would have, you know, concealed his feelings. A little bit more. A just a few years ago just a couple of years ago. But now he's he's unleashed his unleashed. He's linking to this blog post. You know, calling black people inherently dangerous, and he's just posting this on his website. And then he says, oh, well, I'm Jewish. So I can't be racist. So false. Yeah. I can falsify that one with personal injury a century ago. There was a second flowering of the Ku Klux Klan, and there were Ku Klux Klan members in congress Ku Klux Klan members in every business organization in chamber of commerce in the country. It was like a social movement in some ways Ku Klux Klan barbecues and block parties and all the rest a somewhat different from the the first flowering of the Ku Klux Klan. But it was the clan. Nevertheless, is that kind of mass acceptance of white supremacy organized white supremacy a possibility, yes, I think it is. I mean, this is. I do think it ebbs and flows. And I think it's important to note that when the year anniversary March happened there was no one there. I mean, literally like fifteen people there of Charlottesville. Right. So that Jason Kessler tried to go to DC and do it again. And no one went with him things do change. But I do think it is possible for this kind of broad based, you know, racism as as a fun social club thing to take off. Again, proud boys are a social club, the proud wiser this group of you know, they call themselves western chauvinist, they denied being a white pride organization, but they're a quote, unquote, western pride organization and the proud boys just this past weekend were in the streets of Manhattan, beating people up, and they they brand themselves as a social club, but they're also violent street gang. So that
