Konstantin Kisin Was Once Asked to Sign a 'Behavioral Agreement' Form for a Charity Comedy Show

"The country, that seminal moment that made you a household figure in the UK with this story of it was a college gig was it not where you were going to do some stand up comedy constant and there was some contractual requirement from the hosts? Yeah, well, I actually happened is they invited me to help them raise money for charity, so they were asking me to donate my time. And then they sent me what they called it behavioral agreement form, which made me feel right back at home in the Soviet Union, which said that they had a zero Torrance policy on racism, sexism classism ageism ableism homophobia by far would be a transfer of it. Xenophobia islamophobia, anti racism, and it also said that all jokes and must be respectful and kind. And as you rightly say, when I turned it down, I mean, all sorts of things happen. It was the second biggest news story in this country on the day that the then prime minister of this country was nearly removed from office by her own party. That would be the equivalent of Joe Biden nearly gets impeached by the Democrats and the second biggest story on CNN MSNBC Fox News et cetera is unknown comedian turns down a gig from unknown college, et cetera, et cetera. So it was absurd. It was a crazy thing to have happened. But I think you know, that was one of the moments and you played the clip of us talking about no longer advertising SurfShark. That was one of the moments when we really started to feel that standing up for principles was more important than immediate short term gains. And that is really the approach we've tried to take with the show. We talk to people who are controversial to have different opinions left and right. And we're interested in the truth. We're not interested in partisanship. We're not interested in are you on this side or in that side? We want to hear what you think we want to have a conversation about it. And if you're wrong, that's great. There will be people who come in and challenge that. And if you're right,

Activist and Filmmaker Chris Rufo Talks All Things 'Anti-Capitalist'

"Welcome back to mister CRT. Chris rufo. So you mentioned some of these anti capitalists. These people who wish to destroy America tell us who they teach who they consult to and the kinds of money these anti capitalists, like Robert Angelo, Angela Davis, and Ibrahim Kennedy make. So as anti capitalist, they're doing quite well on. They Kris. Hey, yeah. Yeah, and that's really the rub, right? I mean, no one is really anti capitalist. If you look at the four remaining, the three rather remaining socialist and communist countries in Asia, you know, China is a communist country Vietnam as a continuous country. I believe it's Cambodia as the third one. They all have a smaller government as a share of DD GDP than the United States. Actually, in practice, the government of the United States is more socialistic than all of the remaining socialist countries. Everyone knows that capitalism is the great generator of wealth. And for a lot of the critical race theorists, they preach anti capitalism because it's fashionable. It's chic. It's perceived as high status, but they all practice the lives of vicious and greedy capitalists. They won't do it accumulate resources and money. They'll take money from oil companies from technology companies from everybody to feed themselves from the capitalist machine. But they justify it by saying that this is simply redistribution. This is simply taking the fruits of illegitimate capitalist capital accumulation and redistributing it to the great kind of proletariat minds that make up the Vanguard of this revolution. And if you look throughout history, the communists have always impoverished the poor and enriched the powerful. This is a thing that has happened in every communist revolution since the very first one in Russia in 1917. The cadre, the elite, the party members, always suck up the wealth and labor of their countries in order to further their political goals while impoverishing the people that they're purported to help. It's no different in the kind of hyper capitalists the United States than it is in the hyper communist Soviet Union of a hundred years

Joe Biden's America: Lower Your Expectations and Wait in a Breadline

"Washington Post has just published an article don't rant about short staff stores and supply chain woes. You should delight in the suffering. Get used to bread lines obviously. American consumers might have been spoiled, but generations of them have dealt with shortages of some kind. Now it's our turn. To wait in line. Tweets came up all across the weekend of young Democrat socialists who were saying, you don't understand, the type of community and camaraderie that was born out of bread lines. It was a beautiful thing. One of the great things that came out of the Soviet Union were bread lines. Zero sarcasm when they say this, by the way, zero. Tucker Carlson says that the American way of life is quickly declining. An intentionally so. But the rich the powerful well connected, they will be well fed. Joe Biden will not miss a meal. Mark milley will definitely not miss a meal. The people in charge, they'll be well fed. But for those of you that are going to try to feed your family, this Christmas season expect 20 to 50 to 70% price shock. Supply shocks. You see abundance covers a multitude of sins. There's only two explanations for what they're doing here. Either they want to break the back of the American economy to try to fit in the great reset as quickly as possible or number two, they're trying to break the back of the American economy to try to create some sort of a revolution. I'm not sure that's the one though. Because I don't people are getting so uneasy, people are getting so anxious about this, I don't think that the ruling class will be able to manage to successfully manage what's coming

"Time periods and different locations. Certainly that agency on the one hand but also the powerlessness on the other. is very common. It's certainly the case for this group that in addition to that have agency. There's a tremendous amount of luck. Why did the soviet union even let them in at all. It wasn't exactly a plan. They just ended up there that the borders weren't quite closed yet and then all these other contingencies happened whereby they survived the war. So in this case we're not talking about a sort of effort to save people or provide them homes. So i guess we could say how much more so would be done in those situations where people are proactively reaching out and trying to help but in this case in probably in many others it's just circumstance a series of unexpected circumstances that lead to these people's survival of the war. What do you think is the biggest takeaway here and we've talked about this set of issues in terms of the holocaust in particular. We've talked about it in terms of eastern europe. We've talked about it in terms of the broader ongoing issues of genocide and and refugee populations when you think about this research thing about this book and the big issues that it raises like what do you think is like one of the biggest takeaways that we can use you know and then we can think about in terms of its cultural and intellectual significance of why it matters to look at this group into think about their experiences and it teaches us so on the most basic level.

"Couple thoughts one is. This is one example To some degree where they are like other survivors there the postwar survivor community. And they're not distinct in for example their strong commitment to holocaust commemoration. Even though they weren't there they want to build monuments. They want to write about what was lost. They're very committed to commemorate commemorating their families their communities to going back to those places and finding out what happened to collecting information. Some of the major historians in of the holocaust in poland after the war are survivors from the soviet union who are filling the in that history of what they missed of what happened of what was destroyed. That sort of a narrow answer but more broadly in terms of how they changed that community even those countries. Hard to say there are some sensitive issues here because some of the accusations of antisemitism which resurfaced in the nineteen fifties especially in the nineteen sixties in poland lame jews for bringing back communism with them. That is you escaped into the soviet union. You were trained to become communist and then you came back and infected our country and you brought stalin here and look what happened to us all so there are jews in the postwar communist government who enthusiastically take part in all different aspects..

"Of these people. These polish is who survived in the soviet union. Think of themselves as holocaust survivors call themselves holocaust survivors. Some do not some call themselves. Refugees flight survivors. You know they have some other way of understanding their experience. So that's one thing is. I'm not gonna make a decision about what they are. If they themselves have different opinions about this another thing i would say is that i think the more research that's being done about the holocaust the way that it's expanded in recent decades away from just kind of perpetrator accounts german documents toward local histories regional histories. Were just realizing that. The holocaust the holocaust in quotation marks is so much bigger and more diverse than we ever realized that what it means to be a survivor from one. Part of croatia is different from a different part of the former yugoslavia and is different from polish survivors and belgian survive. You know it's it's already such a big tent.

"What is taking place when i look at the archives ways in which the materials that the nazis had looted actually are what ends up surviving the war and is able to be reclaimed through restitution processes following the war in here. You're also looking at ways in which things which look like one thing are actually the opposite in this situation where you're talking about deportation to soviet interior which obviously was very bad at the time actually ends up helping to save the lives of tens of thousands of jews who are now kind of moved out of the way of the nazi invasion of the soviet union when that begins in earnest. Yeah that is the central paradox of this whole story which on the whole the refugees themselves don't figure out for several years later but as readers. We can't help seeing it. But for example there's testimonies and other sorts of evidence that once these refugees are deported. And they're in these special settlements where the labor's terrible the conditions are horrible. The weather is unimaginable. They're suffering greatly. They begin to request and to receive help and they're receiving packages not only from some polish. Jews were not deported. Who are still in that newly acquired soviet territory but also from their relatives under german occupation jews in the ghetto are sending packages to stalin's camps. Because they think why nabet my poor relatives. They're really suffering there because at that point. It seems like they've made the wrong choice. And yet as you say in fact they're the ones who were saying. Yeah i mean. I think that part of what is really important about this. An obviously you know in many ways is i think really interesting and really important to highlight this particular set of histories about how people survived the holocaust but i think it also raises really big questions about the way in which history works the way in which societies work as a whole and and two of them that i think are really striking is questioned agency questions of personal choice and also questions contingency in the way in which things could have gone.

"Of information and rumors and guesses because of course they don't have any idea how long the war will last and in nineteen thirty nine. They also don't have any idea. What the nazis i mean. You know they know something about what's been going on in germany ache but ghettos haven't been invented yet either have death camps you know they're they're weighing factors in the absence of really almost any information. They're doing so in the midst of a as you're saying these dueling invasions going on and frequently in the war starts september first nineteen thirty nine. It's also a time of year that a lot of people aren't even home. They're coming back from summer colonies. They're on their way to school to university. Many men are mobilized in their away from their family. So many families aren't even making these decisions in a unified manner. They're already on the move so it's such a complicated curious and in their memoirs and their testimonies people talk about these decisions but of course we can't ever really now all of the factors. They were weighing what they were considering. How much is just gut instinct on. Certainly it was easier for younger people to pick up and leave for people who had less property less kind of holding them down who had fewer family members or didn't feel attached in various ways. There was also for some a little bit of an attraction to the soviet union to this grand experiment that was going on there particularly for communists socialists for those who leaned in that direction and then on the other hand there were for others really a- a strong negative response to being in soviet territory and the ways in which they as wealthy people as religious people as anti-communist might be endanger their. There's all sorts of personal and political and spiritual factors. That people are trying to figure out. How does this play out. In terms of the the experiences of the jews who are making their way into the soviet union. The you mentioned before the at a certain point..

"Having had very difficult experiences during the war only to find out that their disease starvation losing family members all of the real trauma that they face was nothing compared what happened to their families friends and they left behind and they confront the holocaust and its aftermath as you said that. It's really a small portion of polish jews. I think the number that you give is about two hundred thousand polish choose who flee into the soviet union in which sounds like it is a very large number but in terms of the overall polish jewish population. From before the war which was about three million jews. Were living in in prewar poland. It's not by any means the majority or approaching a particularly large percentage As a whole so this is a story that as a result that is in some respects not as well known because of the numbers would also to some extent because it relies and it's connected with the very complicated nature of the opening of world war two and you kind of need to have familiarity with the complexity of the changing day to day situation in order to understand how it was that these polish jews were able to flee from the nazis in the first place absolutely. I mean in terms of your point about the significance if if we're looking numerically. You're right that at the beginning of the war. It's a relatively small number but of course when they come back. They are the majority of polish jewish survivors. So when we talk about the survivor community homeless jews were the largest jewish community in europe. And roughly seventy percent of the polish survivors. Come back from the soviet union. So suddenly they're a much more significant just in terms of numbers. But it's interesting though when we talk about survivors or dp's or refugees after the war mostly people aren't thinking about this group or thinking about those who came out of camps. Came out of the partisans. You're right that it's definitely about their sort of the complexities and the changing borders..

Street journal is about banned books. So tom first of all of course. Welcome to the show. Thanks dennis happy to be here. I'll bet are and i'm happy that you are. What is there. Every year is that there's a banned books week or something. What is it called. Yes it banned books week. It's a week long promotion in the book. Trade that sponsored by the american library association the american booksellers association and several other organizations. It's the last week of september so begins. It begins next week. And it's a way to promote books that have been ostensibly banned. The the joke of it is that the books that are promoted year after year have not been banned in any meaningful sense and now the books that are in some real sense. Being banned are studiously ignored by ban. Books week policy in the book but hypocrisies two-mile a term. It's orwellian the books that are banned are not mentioned during banned books weeks and books that our peripheral band give me an example of what they say is banned so so yeah i mean obviously it depends on how you define your terms so if i if i describe a book if i tell you that a book has been banned. What does that mean to you. What's your first thought that it is no longer available to the public right. I think that's a reasonable definition. So if i'm living in soviet union in the you know nineteen eighty five. And i want to buy the gulag archipelago. Am i gonna find it kid. It's been banned right the government or somebody with authority to the power to do. It has made that book unavailable.

It really describes how these institutions in America have just been hijacked. Write everything. I mean, everything has been hijacked. Nothing is the way it looks. Everything is some sort of, uh, to reference the Soviet Union like politburo and these and these ministers of propaganda, and they're in line force mint, federal law enforcement and I support law enforcement. You know, I actually was a volunteer cop in Jersey and for for like, two years, and my brothers served both of them. 20 years, NYPD have nothing but respect for law enforcement, But it's Sad to say. At the federal level. We've seen it time and again. There are some bad apples that are Trying to spoil the bunch. And that's just not there. I mean, we see the same thing in the media. We see the same thing in in the schools. You've got teachers that come in with very altruistic, altruistic. Excuse me, Um Rationale of why they want to become a teacher, and then they get there. And that is all kind of, um, usurped by the unions and them saying No, no, you've got to do this and you've got to teach this and we're going to do this and parents. I don't want to put this on the parents, but the parents have a role. Have been taken a back seat, some of them because they don't know better and some of them because they're too busy because they're trying to make a way for their family. So when we look at all of that stuff It's like, man. We're looking at the same thing that we saw. In our own history. A 20 years ago.

Revolution would have a far-reaching and ruinous impact on china. After driving the chinese nationalist government or the combing dong from china. The chinese communist party or ccp establish itself is the leading and ruling organization of the people's republic of china on october first nineteen forty-nine majdan declared the creation of the people's republic of china from the ccp's beginning it had relied on and sought financial and political support from the soviet union.

Operation Crossroads: The Test of Atomic Weapons in Naval Warfare

"World war two had just ended the year before in nineteen forty-five while the war was over. The cold war between the united states and the soviet union was just beginning at this particular moment. The united states had a monopoly on atomic bombs. However it while they had vanished to create and detonate several bombs. There was still a great deal. They didn't know about this weapon. Only three atomic bombs had been detonated at this point. The original trinity test explosion in new mexico. The bomb used over hiroshima and the one used over nagasaki. All three of these were detonated over land. What no one knew was what would happen. If these weapons were used in naval warfare. What would happen to ships which were hit with an atomic blast with they sankar would they flow it. People in the navy had speculations but no one had any proof to this end of the. Us navy initiated operation crossroads. This was to be an a of atomic weapons in naval warfare. The navy search for a location where they could conduct such a test. They needed somewhere remote yet somewhere where they could set up headquarters on land and have observation posts. They eventually settled on a remote coral atoll in the pacific ocean in the marshall islands. The navy move the one hundred sixty seven people who lived on the island to other nearby islands so they could begin testing. They also sailed a fleet of ninety five ships to the atoll which would serve as target ships for the test. These were ships that were set for retirement and the scrap yard and instead would be used for testing they would get newt facilities for over. Forty thousand people were constructed. Who would be there to the tests. They had to build everything from scratch. They build bunkers to observe the test. They built barracks kitchens offices clubs for officers and clubs for enlisted men. It was a massive undertaking and all done far away from prying eyes in the middle of the pacific ocean on july first. The first of these tests took place he would be the fourth atomic bomb ever detonated. In the first above water the test was given the codename able it was dropped from a b twenty nine bomber and exploded approximately five hundred feet above the surface. It caused surprisingly little damage to the ships because the bombs were about a third of a mile or six hundred meters off target the next day. The news of this event spread around the world and everyone became familiar with this remote pacific island which was named

"You define cold laser therapy or so. We look at at at cold laser therapy. That means it's non-thermal because there are some lays out there that are thermal. There's some high powered ones that work by heating up the tissue low level lasers. They've been used since the nineteen sixties. And they're really pioneered in the former soviet union where there was so much research by nineteen seventy four that the russians were using them in their state-sponsored Medical care so they're using them for every branch of medicine basically even if it was. Obgyn if it was a oncology neurology orthopedics because they were able to see that it can help people to heal much faster. By the way the laser actually stimulate. Some changes will be called photo biochemical changes so the easiest way to think about lasers. Let's start with plants. Let's look at photosynthesis so you've gotta plants leaf and when sunlight hits the plant's leaf. They will absorb the photons of energy. Sounds like star trek but it absorbs photons and then the plant will convert that into food through photosynthesis so that's one simple way that living organisms can use light in humans when sunlight hits us. We can't make food but we can absorb that energy and make vitamin d that goes throughout the body in order to cause you to me stronger bones or affect the immune system and inflammation or the sunlight can cause you make me Melon for a suntan melatonin for your sleep wake cycles and for some people. They can't even get seasonal affective disorder. Where if they don't get enough light they can get depressed so we know that our bodies are already light reactive now. What happens when we get laser on the skin. You're not gonna make food or vitamin d or a melanin. But you're gonna make some other molecules that have a really powerful impact. One of the primary ones is you're going to make atp which is made in the mitochondria and so you have listeners. Who have autoimmune conditions fibromyalgia.

"Spot dot com Grow better. This is fresh air and were speaking with veteran war correspondent Scott Anderson. He has a new book about the early years of the CIA from the end of World War two through the Mid 19 fifties, when the agency was a key instrument of policy in the Cold War with Soviet Union. Anderson's book is the quiet Americans. Historians hate to be asked to play what if, but but let's just do this for a second. You know, you look at when Stalin dies. When was that about 1953? Right? Khrushchev comes to power. He talks about peaceful coexistence. At one point, I think he says, you know. Well, if you guys were forming NATO is mutual defence. Maybe we should join NATO. Ah, you know, he does. Once the Hungarian rebellion occurs, there's a moment where he seems to Relent and say, Okay, you can have the reformist prime minister. I'll pull Soviet troops out of the country will have sort of a common wealth rather than this Soviet client states. And throughout all of these steps, the U. S. Policymakers, led by Secretary of State John Foster Dulles have no interest in courting a friendship with the Soviet Union or encouraging some of these steps. Had they taken a different approach. Would history be different? I think it would be. I think it would be radically different. I often think that that and I think you hit it on the nose that that moment. Ah, in this. Why? Why? My book? Have ends with Hungarian revolution because I think that was the absolute key moment when this cold war could have started to end right there. The Soviet pole bureau at Khrushchev's insistence on October 31st 1956 decided they were pulling out of Hungary and, as you said that they were going to change the relationship of all the eastern European countries with the Soviet Union to being this loose confederation. The next day, November 1st 1956 over the course that night, Khrushchev had a complete change of heart and he goes back to the Politburo the next day and says, Look, if the Americans were going to do anything, they would have done it by now. And if we lose, Hungary were going to lose all the others. This is this is going to become a cascade. So on that day cruise ship and the Polo Bureau completely changed course, and they ordered the tanks back into into Hungary. And of course, this was after three years of there being a number of overtures by the Soviets towards the West for a rapprochement. And being rebuffed every time and what you see after Hungary is the Christians who really had been very much a reformer for the previous three years, he was the one who led the desalinization policy. He becomes more and more of a hard liner to the point that he precipitates the October missile crisis in 1962, But that was absolutely one of those great historical what, if moments if the Americans had played things differently with Hungary? The CIA was, of course, active in other parts of the world. I mean, not just Europe. Quickly the developing world where you know you had a lot of countries that had been European colonies for decades, and we're looking to strike out on independent course in general, what was U. S policy in the third world at a time when they feared Soviet in, you know, ambitions everywhere. Right initially after the underworld war to there was this idea that it was FDR is idea of that We will be a force for fostering democracy in the developing world. That went very quickly by the way side by just the onslaught of events. I think that was really ultimately discarded completely by the time of the Korean War in 1950. Now the United States saw the world as we need to defend what we have. We're not gonna be a force for change. We're going. It's gonna be this defensive policy of protecting people against the spread of communism. So If that means propping up our cozying up to military Dictatorships around the world or despot's than so be it on DH. What you also saw happening at the same time Wass and again as a result of large is of Korea. Was now the United States all of a sudden is supporting the French and the British in maintaining their colonial outposts throughout the world, especially in Asia. So the United States under FDR that had been demanding the French leave their possessions and into China, Vietnam now in 1950 for the Americans were actually bankrolling the French to stay on in in Vietnam. So there was. This is this is just a complete turnaround in this in this very short span of time, Right? And then there were cases where governments would come to power in some cases through democratic elections and Pursue courses that were regarded as dangerous, You know, expropriating foreign investments, etcetera. You want to give a couple examples off ways in which the CIA dealt quickly and effectively with those Yeah, And I think this is the next stage on and you see this When Eisenhower comes to power, a cz John Foster Dulles is secretary of state Now, now we're not just propping up Dictatorships were creating on the two places that happened early in his administration was in Iran in 1953 and then Guatemala the following year. Both democracies, but they both had functioning working parliaments, and the irony is that neither of them had really had any sort of relations with the Soviet Union. But as you said industrial powers in Iran's case, the oil companies and in Guatemala either United fruit Company that ran Guatemala is essentially a plantation. They began fomenting that these leftist leaders are going to, you know they're going to take their countries into the Soviet orbit, and we've got to get rid of them. So Under orders from on high the CIA over three. Both of those governments the the most big regime in Iran and Arbenz regime in Guatemala, you've covered a lot of conflict zones and the parts of the book of the United States. In some cases, you know, cynically supporting right wing Dictatorships, you know is not exactly news. People have talked about this before. I will say that. The stories that you tell in Europe where the United States the CIA is pursuing these really foolhardy missions against Eastern European.

"I'm stunned at the portrayal of the Soviet Union in this show. I remember folks during the. In the eighties during the Reagan years, and the seventies to, but, but the eighties is when I began talk radio trying to convince people the Soviet Union was every bit as much revered and lionised as Venezuela is by the Hollywood left today or by as trae Guevara, Cuba. The lure of the attachment to socialism and communism back then was every bit the dreamlike thing that it is today. And to try to tell people what life in the Soviet Union was like was a difficult thing to do. Because there were. There was such resistance people wanted to believe that fairness and equality insane. This was he Tokyo. And you just you have to look long and hard to find an accurate, portrayal Alexander Solzhenitsyn rights is his book that go archipelago enter their intellectuals in America who want to say he's lying about it. It was an accurate portrayal of what just disagreeing with the state got you, if they found out about it in the in the Soviet will this show, Chenobyl is about the nuclear accident at the shore noble nuclear plant, and how they dealt with it. A backwards, the country was how they have no business running nuclear power plants. They. The efforts of the KGB to deny it on the world's the only reason anybody ever found out, is that radio activity spread as far as Sweden in Sweden as the great neutral and cows, and livestock. We're getting deathly sick. And nobody knew why. But accept it was raised radiation poisoning. They had to fess up at that point. They would not ask they didn't have for example, the reactor blue, which is never supposed to happen. Reactors are not supposed to explode, especially after they were shut down. This one was shut down on it exploded. Because everybody working in the plant that night goofed up. One mistake after another. And they lied about what had happened and all kinds of people died, because they were sent to fight the fire not being told that there were twenty thousand rinkins of radiation running around. Nobody was protected pregnant women were allowed to go in and they all knew this. And then when it was discovered they didn't have. The physical equipment to do the clean-up. They wouldn't ask anybody. Because they couldn't dare admit they didn't have it. The Soviet Union was utopia on earth. They would not call Reagan. They wouldn't call the United States to ask for robotics or any kind of assistance. They did call west Germany, and they even flinched that the piece of equipment they needed was from west Germany, the free side, not east Germany, their clients date. But it really is a is a straight on. Portrayal. There's also another thing about this. That has to be said that is accurate in this betrayal. And that is the Soviet people. I mean, the real prisoners in that country, they were lied to. They were sent to their deaths. They were at first eventually they, they, they had to be told the truth. But they were all lot of brave people who, who gave up their lives to clean this mess up and to. I mean, they, they were it's a testament to the to the Soviet people, and they're in their commitment, their belief in their country, so forth. But man, the portrayal the KGB in the. Central committee was Gorbachev. It got the birth Mark on his forehead. Exactly right to, and it looks like it's growing in just like Gorbachev. Did his Soviet expansionism grew soda is birth Mark on his forehead out there? But it's only six episodes. Total either four or five ran listening episode four or five and finales either next week and the week after. But it's striking. I mean, they're all kinds of nuclear scientists who want to tell the world the truth of what happened so that other people other reactors can guard against this, and they won't let that happen. They will not people commit suicide, scientists, and so forth and committed suicide because of the inability to tell the truth. It's all visit it portrays, the absolute bottleneck of bureaucracies, particularly government bureaucracies. And how. Nothing gets done in a timely, or I can't because HBO is kind of place that I am nice the Soviet Union Ted Turner and so forth, HBO and CNN have disconnected with Time Warner. And hope on not getting people that produced in this thing together in trouble by praising it that could happen. You know. But, you know, something else, it's not your remember the movie, the China syndrome. Jane Fonda, Jack Lemmon that movie did as much to kill. The nuclear industry in this country thing ever. This the purpose of this is not to do that. This does not indict nuclear this indicts cut them, but it doesn't do it by name. You have to know what the Soviet Union was, you have to know a little bit about communism to put those things. This is not a hit on indictment of communism you, if you don't know what the Soviet Union was. You'll not put that together, which is why I have taken the time here to tell.

"See inside the Soviet Union nuclear power computers, the internet modern textiles, personal encryption. Even the process of how some of our food is grown or born out of the nation's desperate fear to keep pace with an imposing rival much of that history has been written before countless books have been published about the remarkable and successful technology developed over the last century by governments for national security needs. This is not one of them. Most history books are full of stories that happened. This is a history book full of stories behind things that didn't happen here. We'll take an expansive look at projects missions operations and technology that were seriously considered but didn't make the grade some were ultimately deemed too risky expensive dangerous ahead of their time or even certifiably insane. Others are cancelled mostly because they were overtaken by events it telling bomb worked the war ended the plans were captured other technologies superseded. Generally history books us events of the past to make powerful arguments about historical actors motivations personalities states of mind, and rightfully so this is part of what history books are supposed to do. But I contend that the evaluation of historical events is not enough. It can be just as important to investigate policies decisions and technologies that were considered at the highest levels. But then nixed for variety of reasons the intent of historical actors can be an I argue is far more instructive illuminating than focusing entirely and the outcome of their policies outcome history is the traditional way of viewing historical events, but leaves much to be desired it has severe limitations primarily because his lessons are predicated on things that can't be accurately. Quantified fate luck misfortune, whatever you wanna call it. If the d day invasion of Normandy had failed because of a freak weather system for a lucky shot from German soldier that took out a key American leader on the beach or any number of other misfortunate scenarios would we think any less of is? And hours plan using outcome based history. Answer's yes. And therein lies the problem. Intent can be a very powerful tool for historians. So leave your historical hindsight at the door, nor the fact that these policies technologies programs emissions were scrapped before they became real to get the most out of this book, you should take the advice of master Yoda. You must unlearn what you have learned the outcomes of the programs are inconsequential to the overall message of the narrative outcome really doesn't matter here at all. That's why this book scorns the counterfactual the game of what if mill vilifies it mocks it murder, mersal mercilessly. The counterfactual is our enemy. We will not what if ourselves until we are blue interfaces trying to rewrite history into a hodgepodge of a historical nonsense. Deep breath. I might have taken that a little too far counterfactual can be a lot of fun. When you're hanging out with your friends and family debating, the what ifs of the Kennedy assassination of the civil war the Protestant reformation of the Star Wars prequels or the nineteen eighty six World Series. I forgive you.

Instead, all these stories should have you saying what were they thinking the best way to approach? This book is with an open mind toward the decision makers and how they were approaching the problems facing them in almost every case. Those in power were desperate to do something anything to combat their adversaries thus. What were their thinking is exactly what were they thinking is exactly correct?

"If you will to get vaccinated one of those population groups includes people from the former Soviet Union with distrust of government, runs, deep others have their own reasons not to vaccinate. Unfortunately, when people Google they find all these warnings and adverse reactions, and it can sometimes blur was really important for the child. And in some cases, people see that kids with coal symptoms and worry it might be measles. So they come in for vaccines too. Clark county public health director, Dr Allen Melnik is exasperated. I mean, this is a lousy way to get vaccination rates up. I wish we had vaccination rates up ahead of time. I wish it didn't take an outbreak in one child already being hospitalized. The washington. State health department says about five hundred people were immunized against measles in this area. Last January this January that's been more than three thousand across the Columbia River in Portland, Oregon. Nurse practitioner, Nancy Casey helps run the health center Roosevelt high school. She remembers a sixteen year old who came to her to get shots the child's head. You know, my mom really doesn't believe Maximes. But I'm thinking I want to start. And so we get into a conversation 'cause a lot that happens. Here is why doesn't your parent wants you to have vaccines, and do they know you're here. What would they say? If you were here, Oregon law allows kids fifteen or older to consent to physical health care. So she teaches students about vaccines and helps them decide what to do and whether to call their parents the. The sixteen year old decided to get the shots. Parents never saw a Bill. It was sent to a state Medicaid program. And by the end of her catching up to her mutilation schedule over like a year and a half period. She had told her mom and her mom was not thrilled. But she respected it back across the Columbia River in Vancouver. Washington Shona Carter sits at home. She has leukemia, which means doctors have to kill off our immune system and give her a new one in the form of a bone marrow transplant. The trouble is a new immune system is just that new your baby brand new you have to get all of your vaccines, redone right now. Her immune system isn't strong enough to get the measles shot. And the outbreak has a very worried. So she follows doctor's orders staying at home all the time using lots of hand sanitizer and sometimes a mask. I don't want any setbacks. And this is one of my fears is getting something like the measles that could potentially kill me because I'm not strong enough to fight. It off measles can kill all. Blind. But that's rap Washington and Oregon the two of seventeen states that let children go to school unvaccinated because of personal beliefs. Lawmakers are considering changes for NPR news.

"Poke fun at any screwball liberals. And if you do we're going to grab the hook and get you out of here, and we're gonna make sure you never work again. And this guy said this is the kind of stuff the Soviet Union medicine except the Soviet Union want you to talk about. Was heart right to stand out Kevin Hart? British comedian. Stephen Bailey has an intriguing perspective. I the gay man. Don't agree with what Kevin Hart said. But it was something he put out two years ago. Others the same derogatory views. He's apologized. He seems sincere. We have to hope he learns from his extreme homophobia in grows, and we should give him that we shouldn't want to destroy it. We're in such a time where instead of educating and allowing growth we love to create a villain out of someone. So that we can play the hero. And that's not on. It goes on it, basically. Here's the role of the conic this little last. This is the last for the role of the comic. It's to provide the balance to tragedy in theater that is art and life real calm comedies of making people laugh, your people, what is this? It's to provide the balance to tragedy in the theater that is art in life to rationalize trauma, one of the most effective coping methods. Humans have in this crazy world. It's the best alternative to politics. And it's censored sycophantic, dishonest nature. And it's to help me pay my bills and never ever get a real job. That's the most important qualification for comedy to me. Anyway, comedy has been over run and totally taken over by..

"So I wanna do more. I like it. I liked it. I'm doing well from I guess that's not my number one goal. My number one go by far is to do over my audience. I intentionally don't want to even get in my head that I've got to promote from my guess because then I started just my questions in a more promotional, and that's why also refuse to take any affiliate commissions for my guests, which I know a lot of other podcasters, that's not me. So let me start asking a question that you may not feel super comfortable with just reach out. Actually, PR that converts how much revenue you doing with that. So this is third year a hundred hundred fifty thousand this year. Probably almost the year's almost over. Okay. Be around there this and overall what percentage of your business is it? Maybe late twenty percent of everything that I do or Kahn. So it's pretty good. So I want to just be a little concrete about what that means before we talk about how you built this up on your website. It says steel unconventional PR hacks from the guy who grew a startup from zero to forty million views per month. And then there's a button that says enroll now what is it? It's a course and way for people to do few calls one on one with me after videos. Okay. That's all this. All right. Great. And and why don't we go back? I'd like to go back and get a sense of who people are by going back in time to their childhood. And I'm kinda glad that our producer talk to you about this. Because bazooka was your first business transaction where were you living that you could get into the bazooka business Soviet Union right before it was broke up in the nineties late eighties nineties and bazooka gum was the name of the game that then. Everyone liked bazooka. It was inexpensive. You can go to the store and buy little thing of it. And so how would you make money from zook as a kid and had these little inserts? I don't know if anybody remembers, but he's little inserts inside there. So I would these big big currency back in the day with by when my friends, and so a friend of mine basically didn't like to eat his mom's cooking. So I created we'll deal with him. I'd say all right when they eat, whatever you mom cooks. And she doesn't have to know that you're portion, but you have to do inserts. And then I would take his inserts. And there was this other guy who used to buy off, all And and. I have like I'm looking at some you. You linked me to them to make sure that I understood them. But I I know what this is it's little like four, panel comics and Donald Duck. I think was in some and there was bazooka Joe and others. And so you he would give you the inserts in exchange for eating his mom's cooking, and I would take them. I would take the will inserts and would go and sell it to cost. Of course, it was like older kid and a little money and he smoked like small. I don't know. He was cool. And so I would sell them to him and take the money in by a Snickers bar stickers. Bars were kind of like very hard to come by that were sold. Mike, you know, special places of unique Laker window display. We have to save up. That was my. I sometimes get really frustrated with were can get really tense about it. And what I try to do is remember how fun the old candy business was that. This is actually a fun thing that I chose to be in and the more fun..
