"Express VPN dot com slash ben already? So The bosses at Lululemon. They must have thought that they were going to be okay. They must have thought that everything was going to be fine. After all. They've spent the last several years virtue, signaling on a wide variety of issues. You may recall that just last year, Lululemon came under fire after they tweeted out that it was time to de colonized gender. And it was time to resist to capitalism. Remember, it was an event that was featured in an Instagram post in which Lululemon recommended other accounts to follow, including the host of the workshop, a person named Rebbe current Yo guns. That yoga instructor is a US based brand, ambassador for the firm. A lot of people have time pointed out, Lulu Lemon tells $100 pairs of yoga pants. By the way, quick sideswipe of yoga pants, not actual clothing. In any case, Lululemon cells, he's very overpriced yoga pants to middle income to upper income women with dispensable capital. And they were ripping on capitalism. And that's not where the virtue signalling you woke virtue signaling ended. Of course, you'll remember that the Lulu lemon was a big pusher in the black lives matter movement. They started putting out the Black Square and they started. Telling everybody at their company. They had to sort of mirror the corporate message. Well, now, now, the woke come for the ask not for whom the will come. They will come for the Lululemon and my yoga pants. According to business insider in spring, 2020. Days after the murder of George Floyd, High level Lululemon manager told the team of designers and copywriters she wanted to put all lives matter at the top of Lululemon's website. Black lives matter. Demonstrations across North America, Google Lemon have been scrambling in his Vancouver, British Columbia headquarters to craft a response to the events suddenly dominating the news cycle. Over the course of the afternoon On June 1st, the company put together a task force to develop copy and graphics to present the top brass and quickly published to its website. The team of about 10 employees to spend hours mocking up a version of the homepage featuring black lives matter as the headline because you remember it is very important in the modern age that every major corporation mirror whatever is the woke priority of the day. I know most of you. You really didn't care whether yoga pants company was signaling about black lives mattering, particularly yoga pants company that largely caters to upper class white ladies, But it was very important to Lulu Lemon that they do. This was very important that they signal to everyone. How much that company that makes Over priced extremely tight fitting bottoms. How they single about systemic American police racism. Supposedly they were interrupted by a manager, however, according to four former current employees and current employees close to the matter. It is so amazing how the inside outside game networks at these corporations, It really is incredible. All you have to have a couple of employees ago and leaked to the media and the media suggest that your company is racist or sexist or bigoted in some way and then You're not allowed to fire those people because, of course, these are good hearted whistleblowers. You're not allowed to look for the folks who are trying to destroy your company from the outside and run your company based on this inside outside game. All you have to do is craft media response from the inside these leakers. Suddenly, the entire corporate structure is going to be responding to 21 year old interns. That's how all this works. So that's the story of Lululemon. A bunch of people leaked to business insider, they said the manager, a director, who they added, had not been previously involved in the project demanded that the group used new approved copy near the beginning of the proposed text. The phrase all lives matter appeared in capital letters. We're not writing black lives matter. That's not where we're at, the director told the group, according to two employees present in the room after significant debate the employees, several of whom are black, indigenous and people of color. Agreed to create two designs to present leadership. One with all lives matter. Another with black lives matter, while black lives matter was ultimately selected. An employee who was involved in the homepage project said they felt triggered and traumatized and described it as one of the most disgusting moments in their time at Lululemon. My God. The yoga pants company, a person about their final policy mirror the policy priorities of these people of color who are low level staffers inside the company. Finally, the company agreed with the low level staffers were people of color. Now leaking to the media. But the fact that somebody even pushed back it was just devastating. You cannot have pushed back in the corporate world. All must be ousted. All must be destroyed. After all of these black employees, all of these people of color said, We cannot go forward with this. And please don't make us have to mock this up for you and her saying we have to do it. It was a very traumatic experience. It's unbelievable. They had to write the words all lives matter. In a mock up that they didn't use. Uh oh, the heart flutters at the level of threat faced by these employees at a yoga pants company. Lemon. Then it ended up putting out word. An instagram post. The ted words have power actions have more power. Many corporations stumbled in their internal and external communication after the murder of George Floyd. But even before spring, 2020 all lives matter have been widely recognized as a phrase that downplayed the Black lives matter movement. The director was given the chance to apologize to a group of about 200 copywriters designers and photographers on a conference call. Ah, feet of obligatory internal now struggle session. We have to make sure that this director New He had sinned and he will auto moon. Many of these copywriters designers and photographers were unaware of the events which the director was apologizing. Which, of course, is part and parcel of all of this. It's not directed just at the director. Of course, it is directed at all of the low level employees will shut up or face the same treatment. Director left Lululemon shortly after the apologies. He made the apology and then he left. So you didn't get the benefit of the.

"Have long recommended. This is especially true for low wage workers, a disproportionate number of whom are people of color and have to work indoors. Older people yes, and therefore unlikely to be able to afford one of these higher quality Maxwell. The government will just Oh, of course on people with preexisting conditions to put them at a higher risk. Ideally, we'd have a significant aid package, allowing businesses to remain closed and workers to stay home as much as possible. Also increasing workplace standards through better ventilation and masks. Tragically, that doesn't seem to be in the cards. Well, at least the author here is able to maintain some sense of realism is authors out of their staffing. Mind. Yes, but that statement, at least, is true. That's not in the cards. The rest of this is Insane, hysterical babbling. But that statement is true. That is insane. It's still wise to avoid Harding. Most people don't need that. Many in this search will put fresh strain on supplies already has as long as they're put on and taken off. Carefully use hand sanitizer before and after such masks, a reusable after being left in a paper bag or breakable container for at least five days, which means his fewest five are enough to rotate through a typical work week for people who work with others, especially indoors. All of this is unpleasant, but the alternative is much worse. There's a Turkish saying For times like these when we can see a light at the end of the tunnel, quote. Time passes quickly If we can count the days until the end, unquote we're no longer in the open end a dreadful period of spring 2020.

"As millions of people return to the office. They recognize that the office only workplace has become a relic of the past with more offices resuming operation for out of every five of their full-time workers will pivot to hybrid work Arrangements that have them working in the office typically two days a week and working remotely or away from home three days a week. I'm Dan smell in in this is the dance Nolan podcast the radical shift took a podcast experienced last week has inspired me to take a look at the changing nature of work in the United States as many of you know, the changes indeed affect our very notion of the workplace this week. We begin to explore a future of work in hybrid work hybrid is the arrangement that allows people to work part of the week and their traditional office settings and part of the week remotely such as at a home-based office. One doesn't need market research insight to conclude that the covid-19 demek upended the American workplace. And that is because during the Spring 2020 long down practically every member of the workforce who was used to working full-time in an office setting shifted suddenly to work from home. Now with many office environments reopened with covid-19 in place people who were used to working in offices have opted instead for a hybrid work place model to begin to understand the future of work and hybrid work we turn to some fresh market research in sight this summer our Labs partnered with global workplace analytics to survey need a statistically significant sampling of the American Workforce people aged 2265 who actively work full-time and here are some of the findings that they establish Wished during spring twenty twenty 70% of full-time workers worked from home. And as a result, they saved an average of $473 per month in out-of-pocket commuting and other expenses three out of four people said that working from home made them more productive and 20% of those surveyed worked more hours each week that finding correlates to another one from the survey people working from home optimized and extra 40 minutes per day. That would have gone to commuting. In our major metropolitan areas.

"Hi Happy Friday everyone. Thanks for joining us. I'm Tracy Wilson and I'm Holly Fried So this week was on earth yes indeed. It was a double which is not normal for our our spring. So I mean I I actually don't. I don't think we've done a springtime one before this when we started doing them four times a year. I think it fell such that. We had like an autumn one. That was just a a one shot. I looked back through the old ones. I don't think we've had like a first quarter when before I definitely didn't expect it to be two parts when I got into it like I was one hundred percent not thinking that it was going to be anything other than a one party and even at two parts. There's still like I still have a this document. Called Unearthed March twenty twenty. Maybe which is where when I'm going through all of those things that I have pin. I just put stuff that I'm like. I'm not quite sure how to work it in or it sounds really similar to stuff that we've ever talked about before in some cases like I can't quite figure out what they're getting at with their research or how to frame it so like I still wound up with just a full page of stuff at least on the maybe list. Yeah I WANNA hear them. So here's what I do. I just opened a word document. I type in a couple of words so I'll remember what it's about and then I paste in the URL. And then that way. If I find a reason to circle back to something it's easier to find so yeah makes sense. Unearthed March twenty twenty maybe starchy plants. Tomatoes Tree Rings Question Mark. More tree rings copper. Stuff my favorite entry and this may be list rune stone. I can't figure out how to approach and that was about. A Viking Rune stone that had been The ruins on it had been reinterpreted to be a series of riddles that were related to climate change fears. And I just. I couldn't wrap my head around how they got to that conclusion. And that was how it wound up on the maybe list something to just maybe come back to you. If I found that I needed Steph I also found thing that was about a stolen Christopher Columbus letter being returned and I was like that's ironic. Somebody's stole something from Christopher Columbus and it made it sound like the same letter had been stolen repeatedly which I was like. That's even more ironic but really it's just there's multiple copies of the letter in each of them have been stolen not each of them but multiples of them have been stolen at different times. So yeah there. Was this a lot of stuff glass bowl in a weird place? That's an interesting note that I left for myself. I mean I feel like that's my kitchen right now. How did this get here? I know that's that's definitely my kitchen during the isolation that's currently happening because my spouse is the person who unpacked the whole kitchen and found places for things When we moved into where we're living now I am not criticizing him in this at all But somehow just as we have been in this house together for many weeks he's started putting stuff random places and I'm like. Why is the bull here? I don't understand why the bowl lives here now. Anyway our lives of become very strange in the last they have I I have been more kind of absent minded particularly in the kitchen like the other day I had put together while I was writing a little. Like small ram akin of like mixed nuts. And it's like a lovely little you know porcelain Ramczyk in and when I finished I threw that right in the trash and I literally heard it clunk and went. Oh that's not a garbage item. What's your organs me There's been lots of that kind of activity going on over here in the kitchen. So this glass bowl at a weird place. Each perfectly reasonable. I'm just GONNA keep this March. Twenty twenty maybe list. I mean I always keep the list because I never throw anything away. Keep backups of everything at all times but like we do want to do this again in July. That's our normal pattern of doing stuff is to have some more in July We've also told people that we work with who work on various things related to the show that will probably be doing this again in July And so it would be good to do it. And so if it turns out that there really is just a dearth of findings to report. I may be circling back around to have like stuff that actually came out in the first half of the year Which is fine all the rules surrounding this show or things that I made up for unearthed episodes like maybe if there's no actual good historical unearth we can do. And if we are that allowed at that point to roam free we could do unearthed in our homes of all. We have twitted weird places while we were all in isolation That reminds me of an episode. That Roman Mars did of ninety nine percent invisible. Like right after people started like being ordered to stay in their homes as much as possible. And if you have not listened to ninety nine percent invisible it is a podcast about design and Roman Mars dislike talked about the design history of various things around his house and it was really lovely and I you know I found it. A very comforting. Listen in in those first days after being like oh we gotta stay inside for a while for an unknown amount of time. Yeah I will tell you that. In this grouping some of my big favorites were Ancient Pack Rat Madden's. No I love that one. I mean I it made me laugh a little bit because both my husband and I are from families of pack rat people so I was like who's been in our houses who went to my grandmother's house and I of course loved but there was a whole little lovely set of creepy things time around. Yeah a little. Halloween isn't spring. Just for me but that banana. Finding wasn't that creepy really but something about the headline of like ancient teeth. Solving Banana. Mystery is like this creepy freaks me out a little bit. I also said this episode. I really don't remember ever doing any unearthed episodes that have felt as influenced by something happening right that minute like yeah we've frequently had stuff that was related like would have a thing that was related to some big news worthy effort like a massive fire that destroyed Museum like A. There's always been stuff that's been relevant but I just I don't require there ever being multiple entries that are like and this may be delayed because of the pandemic So that was kind of a new experience. Yeah I mean it kind of goes back to what we talked about in our our episode where we talked about living through this period in history and it being different knowing that historically significant and it being different than other events because it is this ongoing thing that's does not have a finite end date to it so it is acting everything in a lot of ways and particularly things like an archaeological dig. That's every up in the air. At that point yeah unrelated to the unearthed episodes. Have you been doing the thing where you'll see something happen? And you'll be like if there's podcasts. In one hundred years some podcast or saying and then they reversed course on the direction regarding masks ever reason that's going on. I mean I literally This is not an ad. They had advertised on the show before. Like I use a tax base for my therapy because I love having therapists that I can text. Is things come up to me throughout the week? I don't want to like save it up for an appointment and I'm constantly texting her and being like I I sort of wish I could time travel to a hundred years from now and see how this moment is written about like when any various things happen. Yeah yeah some of it. Like with the direction. Some of that is like. We're having to figure it out as we go. It's a new strain of corona virus. And we did not have quite the clear sense of how easily it can spread from people who aren't symptomatic. Yes some of its new knowledge. That's like we're witnessing it being uncovered which can be really a frustrating process to watch. Oh for sure right. I mean you think you have a handle on things and then al changes and even I know you and I have discussed like what level of lake cleaning. Were doing to groceries. And like those guidelines are changing almost daily depending on who you talk to you or who. Yeah so IT IS A. It's such a it feels like. We're kind of like trying to run forward through a river. That is running in the opposite direction because we never really have sure footing in terms of like okay. This is our knowledge that we can work from this because the next day it is often completely different. Which I I mean. That's just like us. As average people living through it. I can't imagine the level of just like exhaustion and frustration. This creates in the medical community. Who are on the front lines of this trying to deal with it every single day. Yeah to find out the protocols you were using in fact not appropriate would be beyond frustrating finals rat. The scary so again hats off to them is is not even an appropriate depth of wording. I really hope all of our medical professionals are being extra safe. That is That the field. I could never be in personally. I have immense respect for it but especially in this moment right right And another thing. That's becoming clear as like how how many things have elements. That aren't immediately obvious. Like there's been a lot of discussion about airlines airlines really struggling and a lot of people who are really frustrated by the idea of bailing out airlines because they feel like that that the airlines have been nickel and diming their customers and so like. Maybe they don't deserve it like that's been a thread of conversation that I have seen a lot I also know people who live in Alaska and parts of Alaska at this time of year are served only by air. You get there without a plane. And when the airline goes out of business people are just stuck. They can't get out medical help. Can't get in. Supplies can't get in. It's like it's just a huge huge deal. Anyway that that has all digressed from our first episodes this week.

"It was returned to the museum by an anonymous person in twenty eighteen. The formal return of the pipe took place in Salamanca New York in January. And now we are going to move on and finish off this installment of with something that a lot of people social media shares blamed for the state of the world right now Which since as we've said earlier this episode is coming out in two weeks. Who knows what the state of the world would be at that point? Thirty lead curse. Tablets were found in the main cemetery of ancient Athens down at the bottom of a well. This well is known as be thirty. Four it's one of more than forty known wells in the cemetery and it dates back to the fourth century BC. It was common to bury these types of tablets in a person's tomb under the idea that the person could carry the message with them to the underworld and wells were seen as another connection to underworld deities this use of wells as kind of a curse tablet mailbox increased after. Siemian law banned the burial of curses ENTOMBS AS PART OF LAWS GOVERNING THE TOMBS OVERALL MANAGEMENT. So these curse tablets would have been considered the black arts and the black arts were not looked upon very favorably and Athens so this well which was the water source for a public bath was probably just a convenient place for people to try to throw their curses in syrup dishes. Kind of reminds me of people. Trying to scatter ashes on Disney ride. Some of the other items found in the well which had to be pumped free of water before the excavation could begin were bronze coins cooking. Pots drinking vessels peach pits and Talis bones. Used FOR DICE Games. This wasn't just littering. Some of these items would have been thrown in as an offering to the water. Nymph believed to be tied to the well so this story came out a little bit earlier in the year but it circulated a lot. I saw it around numerous times in the early days. Just after the World Health Organization had declared a pandemic and that leads to people making various quips about how we needed to throw the curses back in. Just to be clear though. They were removed. When the well was excavated for the first time back in two thousand sixteen so an also probably they had already done their curse work if you believe in such a thing since the whole point was for them their messages to be retrieved by underworld deities down at the bottom of the will. It's a return to sender situation. Says No so yeah? That is our unearth for the springtime. I've twenty twenty wildly curious how this goes in summer. Yeah me too me too Like a a lot of universities are are only doing online instruction or like have like told students not to return to campus so like The World of university based work is very different simultaneously though my spouse works for a university as a librarian and he has been incredibly busy working at home. as faculty have wanted a lot of research help for stuff that is related to Kobe. Nineteen in some way so at there's they could go so many different ways like i. I imagine a lot of field. Work is probably cancelled or postponed a lot of conferences. Where these kinds of things make their first public appearance like those. A lot of them have either been cancelled or postponed or moved to an all online format. It's remains to be seen What will have to report in July? Yeah I imagine there could be like analysis and You know putting together of papers during this time but we'll see we'll see we'll in based on our own experience. It's a little hard to concentrate that it is. I mean we. We have a lot to be thankful for Ali and I and our work but also It's been kind of like just an emotional and mental struggle. Yeah I find myself like in the middle of research and being like none of this makes sense together. How do I make a narrative structure and then I realized like two hours of past and I've just been essentially staring at a cat same like I've just like I don't know what happened here but I gotta make up for lost time. Do you have a little listener? Mail that take us out? I do have a listener mail. It is from someone who asked us to. Please leave their name off if we read it. So I'm doing that. They right I would just like to thank you. Ladies for your special corona virus episodes podcasters may not be doctors or laboratory technicians truck drivers and supermarket shelf seconds. But you're still doing an important job of keeping the spirits up of people stuck at home. My wife and I are in Australia both working from home. I work for the railways and most other railroads still have to go to work to keep the trains moving where running more intermodal general freight trains than ever. They are as long as they can be to fit into passing loops also known as sightings but are not as heavy as they could be things like dried pasta and toilet paper. Take up a lot of space but are not very heavy. The people who load trains are used to seeing a peak period in the lead up to Christmas. But right now they're seeing a peak which doesn't end one of the biggest I have is having to keep picking the cats off the laptop. We have three cats and a dog. I sent out this photo to my workmates. Said my cat. Trim takes after his namesake. The original trim as how Australia got its name. Matthew flinders had just finished the first complete map of Australia and trim went to sleep in the middle of it. He wanted to write Tara Australia on it. Which is Latin for southern land but he abbreviated it to Australia. So as not to wake trim. I've been had to explain to my workmates. That it wasn't true British naval office. Matthew flinders was the first person to circumnavigate Australia and to properly map it he did bring his Catt. Ships cap called Trim with him. Trim was known for mischief like sprawling out on the chart table when an officer had to do the navigation but the name Australia had already been coined. Flinders chose to use it and made it popular on a lighter. Note after your train wrecks episode you might like to hear the tea and sugar. This was a shopping mall on a train. There used to be a whole series of settlements next to the railway across the nullarbor desert.

"World of food and drink to talk about first up. Researchers think they have figured out how the collusive kingdom and what's now southern Florida kept large quantities of fish from going bad in the summer heat. While working on large scale construction projects the kingdom's public works included. Things like really large buildings and canals and they would have needed a large labor force to construct and their diet was largely fish based so the trick to keeping such a large supply of perishable food on hand in very hot weather was to build large water courts to temporarily hold large numbers of living fish. Basically for a few days at a time close to where the work was actually happening. Some of these water courts were massive as large as thirty six thousand square feet with an oyster. Shell Foundation and it wasn't just a matter of digging. The equivalent of a big rectangular fishbowl keeping the fish alive would have required them to account for tides and currents to keep the habitat going as a place where the fish could survive based on radiocarbon. Dating these water courts were built sometime between thirteen hundred and fourteen hundred and that would have been during the second phase of construction on a royal manor. That was huge large enough for about two thousand people. Researchers studying ancient pieces of Siberian pottery. Believes they figured out why pottery was first developed in that part of the world toward the end of the ice age their work involved pottery pieces that were between twelve thousand and sixteen thousand years. Old based on the lipid residues. They found this pottery was most likely used to process. Fish probably salmon. So the team's suggestion is that people developed pottery at this place and time because they were looking for alternate food sources at some point people had already migrated away from the coldest least hospitable parts of what's now Russia and it would have become increasingly hard for them to find enough food by hunting and gathering in the words of Professor Oliver Craig quote. It is interesting that pottery emerges during these very cold periods and not during the comparatively warmer interstate heels when forest resources such as game and nuts were more available. Researchers doing similar work in Japan came to the same conclusion about white. Powdery was developed there at about the same time but the methods for making pottery were different in these two places suggesting that two different populations each developed pottery for the same reasons and around the same time but separately from each other that separate study. The Japanese Studies Lead Author Dr. Shinya Shoda was quoted as saying we are very pleased with these latest results because they close a major gap in our understanding of why the world's oldest pottery was invented in different parts of Northeast Asia in the late glacial period and also the contrasting ways in which it was being used by these ancient hunter gatherers researchers in Israel planted thirty two judean date palm seeds which had been gathered from several archaeological sites. Six of them sprouted. Once that's routing it happened. Researchers gathered up the fragments of the germinated seeds to carbon date. Them to the seeds went back to between the first and fourth centuries BC to were from the mid second century BC e to the first century CE and then two of them were from the first or second century CE. The age of the seeds and the characteristics of the plants themselves may shed light on how the population of Judea shifted around two thousand years ago as well as how people farmed date trees. Moving on archaeologists in Tasmania have been excavating the former Picton road station. That was home to one hundred. Sixty incarcerated workers while they were building a highway in the nineteenth century this included the solitary cells that were used for housing along with things like ceramics tableware and tools. There were also a surprising number of alcohol bottles. Something that would have been tightly restricted given the fact that the laborers were prisoners. Another dig at the area is scheduled for next year. Also in one of the funnier moments as I was getting this episode together. I keep up with all of these links to stories throughout the year. I'm on Pinterest and what I had pinned for. This story was not a whole article. It was apparently someone's accidental publishing error. It had the headline quote fragments found in a Tasmanian convict archaeological dig at Kempton and then it had the sub head. Evidence of many types of alcohol was found at the dig and then that was it. There was no content. What else do you need to know? Obviously the evidence of any types of alcohol was what prompted me to pin the story in the first place. So it was enough for me speaking of alcohol. Archaeologists found six hundred beer bottles neatly stacked during an excavation at Scarborough Castle in in Leeds. This site had been home to Tetley brewing but the bottle. Some of which still contain liquid are from a variety of brewers in the area. Some of this liquid with analyzed and found that it did still contain alcohol but it also contained lead lots and lots of lead. It seems as though the breweries waterpipes might have been contaminated. Which really isn't all that surprising considering its age and the fact that it had Victorian and Georgian era plumbing possibly the weirdest creepiest best headline of this. Season's unearthed three thousand year. Old Teeth Solve Pacific. Banana mystery Fit is an island in the Pacific Ocean across the coral sea from Australia. It is home to an important archaeological site known as Toma which is home to a large cemetery from the Neolithic Lupita culture. The cemetery itself is the oldest in the region known as remote oceanic and many of its burials are exceptionally well preserved. So I'll studying three thousand year old skeletons. Researchers found microscopic particles of banana and other plants and their dental plaque. This is the first evidence that the Lupita people may have brought domesticated plants with them when they first arrived on the island which had been uninhabited before they got there. That arrival happened about three thousand years ago and this may help answer some ongoing questions about how the Lupita people survived as they first settled this island getting into more creepy things which makes me happy moving on from food but continuing with that the stuff. That was. Just kinda creepy. Italian anthropologists have concluded that what appeared to be a piece of black rock is really part of the brain of someone who died during the eruption of Mount Vesuvius. In the year seventy nine the substance was glassy and it was found on the inside of a person's shattered skull in other news a cranium found near Pompeii about one hundred years ago has reportedly been confirmed as belonging to plenty the elder. At least as far as it's possible to consider confirm such thing at this point Plenty of the elder was admiral of their Roman imperial fleet and went to the area after vesuvius erupted both to study what was happening and to try to rescue as many people as possible but he was killed by poisonous gas from the eruption according to his nephew plenty of the younger a jawbone was found along with the cranium and over the course of the work it became clear that the two bones belonged to different people based on isotope analysis. The job own belong to someone of African descent. Who is in their late thirties? Possibly someone enslaved by planning the elder the skull on the other hand belong to someone older from the general region of Italy that plenty. The elder was from This was really not as conclusive as headlines made it sound like because the headlines were like plenty of the elders skull identified and maybe this is a cranium that belonged to somebody from approximately the time and place that blending the elder was from found near. Pompeii. crazy because it's a cranium. But it's also kind of silly moving onto some other stuff that I found a little creepy in twenty-six archaeologists found a broken bottle full of nails at a civil war fortification known as redoubt nine and that today is the median of highway. I sixty four in Virginia this year. The William and Mary Center for Archaeological Research announced that they believe this bottle is a witch bottle so which bottles were meant to ward off evil spirits. Something that's been practiced in various ways in different parts of the world throughout history. In this case it involved burying a bottle full of nails near the hearth in your home and that practice started in East Anglia in England during the Middle Ages. Archaeologists have found almost two hundred which bottles in Britain but only a handful in the United States. So this find is relatively rare also It could have just been a bottle full of nails with no supernatural significance because the top of the bottle is broken off. So it's not clear whether it contained any of the other items that were typically placed into which bottles like nail clippings or locks of hair. It could have just been the container. Someone was using hold their nails. My brain wants to start making artisanal which bottles to sell online. I just put like cat mailed clippings I increasingly really love all of the things that I mean not all of the things because some of the things have been done are horrifying but like the the concealing of objects in walls and hearts to try to ward off evil spirits to things like which bottles and shoes and just delight me. She don't want that bill which to come looking for her tooth you don't it makes me out. That's probably why I thought. The banana thing was creepy because it was about teeth anyway. A little break yeah..

"Hello and welcome to the PODCAST. I'm Tracy B Wilson and I'm Holly Fry here is part two of the weird experience of working on unearthed episodes in the middle of a pandemic which has just been a strange thing. It's it has not been usual for me. To repeatedly refer to current like the same current event multiple times doing unearthed. Today we have some fun stuff including edibles and potables shipwrecks books and letters. Just some other cool stuff too. So normally when Tracy is working on earth she winds up finding stuff that seems cooler interesting but it kind of doesn't really fit into any category and so those I'll go into Potpourri and that's where we're starting today. I up five year excavation at a picnic homestead known as layer of Glenn. She in Scotland. Has Unearth lots of fines including a padlock dating back to between five hundred and one thousand CE. There's no more really to discuss with that. I just thought it was cool to have a padlock. That was that old moving onto something. That is a little more serious. The Twenty nineteen twenty twenty bushfire season in Australia was really just devastating particularly devastating with losses in terms of human and animal life as well as the general environment and ecology and property like just on and on. Australia's aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander. Peoples have been disproportionately affected by this. With fire's completely destroying ancestral homes and cultural sites material losses have included things like council buildings ceremonial items and sacred sites. And then all of this has also been happening alongside discussions about Aboriginal Land Management Practices. That could have mitigated. The fire season had any been following them. In a few cases the fires have unearthed artifacts. That might have gone undiscovered something that we've talked about in previous editions of unearthed as well when people found artifacts between the time that a fire destroyed all the vegetation in an area and when the vegetation re grew one example is a stone carved boomerang found in a creek bed after the adjacent property was destroyed by fire on New Year's Eve. So it's not totally clear how this boomerang came to be there. They are not common in that particular part of Australia. However this discovery did raise the point that people returning to their homes and their property after these fires should be alert to the presence of artifacts that have been uncovered by the Fire Coaching Beers crews working on Britain's H. S. Two or high speed to have found what may be the oldest railroad turntable in the world while excavating the former. Curzon Street station. The roundhouse that existed on the site dates back to eighteen thirty seven so the site is part of a planned. Intercity terminus for high speed rail. That will be located in Birmingham City Centre. So more excavations of this turntable are expected. Along with some efforts to figure out whether it's possible for the turntable to be preserved in some way in its current location researchers at Reichen Nisha Center for accelerator based Science in Japan has found a new way to pull tiny tiny samples of vermillion also known as Cinnabar from ancient artifacts that methodists sticky tape specifically tiny squares of special sulphur-free tapes and sulfur would contaminate the process and Mo- sticky tapes on the market actually contained sulfur. So the need for this innovation came about from developments in the analysis techniques that were being used. The research group developed a method that only required one microgram of vermillion. And that's five hundred times smaller than the sample sizes that were needed for other methods. So that's great. It's great to needs as take a smaller sample. Because then you don't have to do nearly as much damage to the object that you're trying to study however they didn't actually have a way to collect a sample. That was that small like it was like. This is a great idea. But how do we get a say that small? And that answer was the sulphur-free tape in little little three millimeter by three millimeter squares. To just pull off the tiniest amounts of vermilion pigment from things like pottery and stone tools. I really loved this sticky tape store I do you. I was having virtual not with a friend of mine and she was like. What are you working on right now and I was like. I'm working on these unearth episode. She's like oh. I like this and I was like what what's something that's cool is that you're finding and like the sticky tape story was what I immediately launched into Back in twenty fourteen. Whitaker Schroeder a student at the university. Pennsylvania was in Mexico looking at archaeological digs and trying to find a topic for his dissertation research. And after a while he started noticing a streetside Karnataka's vendor trying to flag him down whenever he drove by Schroeder thought. The vendor was trying to get his attention as a customer but he was a vegetarian so he did not stop but on the last day of his trip he did and it turned out that the vendor was not trying to make a sale he had heard that Schroeder was interested in the Maya and he wanted to tell him about a friend who had found a stone tablet. It turned out that the rancher had found something significant in his yard and five years later after negotiations with him to do the excavation. Those excavations began they revealed the capital of the Maya Kingdom of Soksi or white dog which was occupied for about a thousand years starting seven fifty or so archaeologist had been trying to find the seat of this kingdom since discovering references to it at other sites in Nineteen Ninety Four. The team unearthed ruins sculptures and monuments one of which is inscribed with descriptions of things like rituals and battles. The team was planning to return to the site. In June. For further excavations although the pandemic seems likely to delay that effort moving on to a favorite category and that shipwrecks locals have known about ereck about thirty five miles off the coast of Saint Augustine Florida for more than three decades. They nicknamed the bear wreck found a lot of references to that being having to do something with debris had washed up I was like was there a bear on it. Did it look like a bear? This January though this wreck was finally identified as S S Cotopaxi which disappeared in nineteen twenty five. The Cotopaxi was traveling from Charleston. South Carolina to Havana Cuba carrying a load of coal when it disappeared with thirty two people on board since then some people have connected the Cotopaxi to the so-called Bermuda Triangle which the ship would have passed through on that journey biologists and diver. Michael Barnett worked on the identification using insurance records blueprints and other documents to compare the wreckage to what was known about Cotopaxi and then in addition to the news coverage of this in January the wreck was also covered on the science channel series. Shipwrecks secrets crews have brought up more than three hundred fifty artifacts from the wreck of Sir John Franklin ship Erebus which was founded in two thousand fourteen and we talked about it on on earth that ear the items include things like a hairbrush kitchen items wine bottles and an accordion. These were recovered by parks. Canada underwater archaeologists so. It's been a few years since the ship was found. There had been some other items brought up from it but this is the first time that underwater archaeologists have really been able to start working at the site and mostly. That's because of the weather. The northern location of where the wreck is located. Means that you can really only dive there for five or six weeks a year at best if you have bad weather during that five or six weeks that means it's not safe to go out too bad a team for lost fifty two project which has come up on previous episodes of unearthed has found the remains of the USS Nickelback which sank after accidentally colliding with a US Navy ship on May Twenty Eighth Nineteen fifty eight. The wreck wasn't far from where the collision had taken place in about. Eleven thousand feet. That's about three thousand. Three hundred fifty meters of water so th was accidental. It happened during an antisubmarine warfare exercise the crew were able to use compressed air to force the water out of the vessels ballast and they all escaped to other ships that were in the area before the wrecks. Thank again for folks who might not recall. The loss. Fifty two project has a goal of finding all fifty two. Us submarines that disappeared during World War. Two and the four that were lost during the Cold War. As of the stickle back announcement. It had found six of those subs. Let's have a sponsor rake before we move on to one of the perpetual favorites which is the edibles and the potables. This episode of Steffi missed in history class is brought to you by best fiends. I like my job but sometimes I need a quick break and one of my favorite things to do on a little break is something that evolves puzzles and best scenes is a puzzle game. That is very casual. You can play it whenever you want to. For whatever amount of time you want to be long or short it is a game made for adults but it's full of adorable bug characters which are my part of it.

"Our house. We always leave secret messages in things that are going to get good. Sometimes I'll have dreams like we realize. Oh there's a door that we never opened in the house. What's back here. I kind of like that. This one is like Oh yeah we knew about that. We just forgot yes. I knew that the articles they got shared are kind of spectacular. Because there's a photo in there was in a lot of them Of somebody coming through the door and it's not a small enough door to be kinda creepy but it is a small enough door to be charming in my opinion. It's not like when we were looking at houses and we opened a little door in an attic and there was a creepy creepy teddy bear. Back I love it I let A. Do you have creepy or non creepy listener mail? I have non creepy listener mail. It is from Caitlyn and I have a specific reason that I picked to read the title of the email is cats and sewing and Caitlyn says hi Tracey and Holly I teach preschool. And I'm currently furloughed because tiny germ factories and chronic illnesses. Dangerous Combo without adding a pandemic into the mix. I'm going a little stir crazy in the house without spending my days. Refereeing my kiddos. So impulse buy a sewing machine. Her name is Rose Burton. I learned to sew and made cool stuff as a theater major but paused after graduation. When I didn't have access to the costume shop anymore my first project was a felt shark to Piss for my cat named shark depose also known as Sharkey see photo photos were great. Sharkey is eight months old and her favorite activities. Include trying to catch birds through the window sleeping under the couch where I can't bother her as easily and stealing nibbles of teriyaki sauce from my plate. She's fuzzy and sweet and has a white spot on her tummy from where she got shaved for her spe in regards to Emily Dickinson Poem. Having a cadence the first time ever heard that was from my dad and I thought he was a genius. His other favorite trick was to swap the lyrics of amazing grace yellow rose of Texas and House. The Rising Sun eight year old me was suitably impressed and entertained. Please keep staying safe and healthy. Caitlin Caitlin also has some episode topic ideas and there thank you so much. Kaitlyn for this email. I wanted to read it for so many reasons. Besides the one that I thought of it I I love that the sewing machine is named Rosebud. Tam I love the trick of swapping the lyrics of these different songs. I have before before I moved away from Atlanta. I had a friend who did open mics and would like riff on old songs. And hymns like that just seamlessly move in and out with each other's like key and meter and all of that and it was delightful and I loved it But also I have also gotten out my sewing machine recently to make the masks because there's a pandemic happening and we are now being advised to cover our faces when we go out in public and I forgot how challenging it can be too so things with cats around. Oh Yeah I'm just used to it. Yeah I Because I do still have a sewing table but there's just not a great place in our house to put it. I thought about making like a sewing corner in our basement and that has not worked out for various reasons so I brought the sewing machine to the to the table that we eat on. And there's not a way to close that off from any cats. It was just like constant cat. Wrangling while making masks anyway thank you so much. Kaitlyn for that email. It really delighted me a lot of ways as always we hope folks and their loved ones are as safe and healthy as possible. Regardless of what's happening in your life right now. I really hope people are able to take as much care with themselves and to be as gentle with themselves as possible. I know it's a really hard time and a lot of folks are really struggling So our thoughts are with everyone if you'd like to send us a note or some chat pictures or anything like that history.

"Massacre the city of Tulsa announced plans to do a test excavation at oaklawn cemetery that was one of the locations where ground penetrating radar had revealed signs of possible mass grave. Something that we talked about on a previous addition as we said at the last update that excavation was planned to start on April first and go on for ten days. However the excavation has had to be postponed we are not sure until when because of the cove in nineteen pandemic also earlier this year the state of Oklahoma announced that it will require the massacre to be taught in schools continuing on the more serious thread of topics In Unearth July twenty nineteen. We talked about a discovery made by Hanna. Durkin of Newcastle University Durkan had published a paper on a woman named Reduc- who had died in nineteen thirty seven and was believed to be the last survivor of the Trans Atlantic slave trade in the United States previously. The last known survivor had been a man named Lewis who died in one thousand nine hundred eighty five so two years before reduce she did we also previously talked about the publication of Zora. Neale Hurston Book Barracuda which came from an interview that she conducted with. Joe Louis Well Durkin has now found that another person outlived both Ridolfi and Cudgel Lewis. That's Mathilde maclear. Who died in Selma Alabama in January nineteen? Forty shoes eighty three at the time she her mother and her sister had all been enslaved in west Africa when Matilda was too and they were transported to the US on one of the last slave ships to arrive here in eighteen sixty. Just repeat 'cause I feel like it's an important thing to keep in mind. The last known survivor of the transatlantic slave trade in the United States died in nineteen forty. We're going to close out our updates with a couple of brief bits. That were just fun. In Our two part. Podcast on the loom brothers from 2017. We talked about their eighteen ninety-five short arrival of train at Lucia. Thad youtuber dinner. Sharia used neural networks and algorithms to upscale that film to four K. Resolution at sixty frames per second and it is really beautiful This is an audio podcast that we can't really convey how cool it is. I will say this one of the cool things that I saw going around On twitter of people discussing this film is that we have always kind of giggled. A little bit many modern era people. About how funny. It was that people of the time. We're startled by this piece of footage and they're like oh but seeing it like this. I totally see how that would have happened. I think we talked in that episode. About how proudly that didn't really happen. It's just in case law right like they weren't scared and run and run away but even so I think most people were a little bit just like all odd by it. It's it looks like a train coming at you. And when we see it even with our modernize us to constant Technological advances in film and television seeing the way it's framed and the way it's filmed it really does feel for a second like a train is coming. Yeah it's quite striking yeah I've I was typing this in here. I realized the sort of absurdity that I was typing into an audio podcast. Outline a video that you can watch on the Internet anyway. Lastly just as a fun ending for these updates. Nearly one hundred girl. Scouts took part in an archaeological dig at the birthplace. The founder Juliette Gordon Low. I forgot to put in when we did that episode. It wasn't that long ago you can find it in our archive. The dig was in advance of clearing the garden area at the birthplace for some new landscaping and some of the items that they unearth included household objects like nails. What a cool project. What I thought I love it. Do you want to take a quick break before we dig into crime? Oh Yeah we're GONNA have some crime after the break in a world where everyone is confined to their homes.

Real friends on the iheartradio APP apple podcasts. And wherever you get your podcasts. There's a lot of stuff in our earth episodes that you could classify as criminal in one way or another including some stuff. We've already talked about but next stuff we have a couple of things that fall under crime by more straightforward definition. Like you maybe might hear about on a true crime. Podcast I on May Eighteenth of Nineteen Sixteen. A man named Joseph Henry loveless escaped from custody in Idaho where he was being held on suspicion of having brutally murdered his wife in January of this year. Headlines broke that. His remains had been identified. The first piece of the remains in question was found on August. Twenty Six nineteen seventy nine. That was just his torso buried in a shallow grave in a cave and found by a family looking for projectile points. His hand was found nearby in Nineteen ninety-one which led authorities to conduct a more thorough search of the cave that search unearthed other parts of the body. Apart they never found was his head in twenty nine team. Law enforcement went to the DNA doe project and tried to construct a family tree for these remains and that connected them to one of loveless living grandchildren. A likely conclusion is that loveless was murdered and dismembered in an act of retribution for the grisly murder of his wife There are various ethical questions about things like DNA DOE project making connections between living people in acts of crime. I feel like that's a little bit outside the scope of what we can really talk about in the podcast but I wanted to acknowledge there are questions Late March twenty ninth or early March thirtieth in The Hague Netherlands. Vincent Van Gogh's painting. Spring Garden was stolen from singer. Laron Museum which was closed because of the pandemic seeing as how this happened during a pandemic and just days before we recorded this. There is no other information at this time including whether any other artwork from the museum was stolen since this was an overnight thing if this did happen on the morning of the thirtieth that was van. Gogh's birthday. Can I just tell you. This is one of those news stories to just burnt my butter like it doesn't shock me at all there. There are so many news stories that make me angry but this would just sent me into fits of rage late. Add insult injury not only stealing a painting but also stealing the painting on the artists birthday. Well it taking advantage of a global pandemic to do I just. I feel as a lot of layers. There be so angry. We're going to be some hopefully less outraging things involving animals. We have a whole collection of animal. Unearths things coming up during our year. In unearthed in two thousand nineteen. We talked about Iceland's now extinct but genetically distinct walruses and today we have some more walrus news. According to research from the University of Cambridge Oslo and Trondheim it's possible that Greenland norse colonies disappeared around the fifteenth century in part because they had been over hunting the local walruses for their tusks walrus ivory was an important trade good in medieval Europe and it seems as though leading up to the fourteen hundreds. The animals north people were hunting in Greenland. Were getting smaller and smaller. And we're more likely to be female rather than male and we're also hunted from farther and farther north on the island suggesting that people were running out of larger male animals to hunt closer to home and the words of Dr James H Barrett from the University of Cambridge's Department of archaeology quote. Our findings suggest that north hunters were forced to venture deeper into the Arctic Circle for increasingly meager IVORY HARVESTS. This would have exacerbated the decline of Walrus populations and consequently those sustained by the Walrus trade. Barrett's CO author Bastion Star. Also noted that this would not have been the only factor other things like the little ice age and unsustainable farming methods and the black death also would have played a part in two thousand eighteen. A restoration project was completed on the altarpiece at the Basilica Cathedral in Cusco Viejo Panama. Which is part of Panama City Today? Not far from the southern end of the Panama Canal. While doing this work it was discovered that orchid bees had built their nest in the altarpiece were the two hundred years ago solitary. Shy Bee species typically females build their nests far away from each other and that can make it really tricky for scientists to study them like the nests are by themselves hard to.

"Back in July of Twenty nineteen we did an episode on Thomas. Cook and the rise of the tourism industry just two months later. The Thomas Cook Group collapsed leaving travelers stranded around the world and a question that followed which is what happens with a lot of businesses when they go under especially large businesses. That have been around for a really long time was how to save the company's Archive. And this wasn't just about nostalgia for old stuff. Company archives can document not only a company's own history but also the time and place in which the company operated and its customers and employees. They can be truly immense sources of historical information in the case of Thomas Cook. Archive included a wealth of written records. Passenger lists brochures letters books and other material that the company produced so a panel was convened in November of two thousand nineteen to figure out what to do with this archive and in January. Two Thousand Twenty. It was announced that the Thomas Cook Archive would go to the record office for Leicestershire Leicester and Rutland. When the announcement was made public the collection itself had already been moved so is accompanied by pictures of like where all the boxes are now. Previous hosts didn't episode on Cahokia on June eighth twenty eleven. The general consensus on Cahokia has been that the Mississippi and peoples who built it abandoned it sometime in the mid fourteenth century and that it remained abandoned from that point however according to a study published in the journal American antiquity while the Mississippi and peoples who had lived on the site did abandon it. Around that time it was repopulated in the fifteen hundreds with people continuing to be present there for at least two hundred more years. These conclusions were based on analysis of things like fossil pollen charcoal and fecal remnants particularly important to this work. Where fecal Stan? All's from the sediment at the bottom of Horseshoe Lake and this is not the first time that we have talked about fecal remnants in Horseshoe Lake in unearth. July twenty. Nine thousand nine. We talked about a team that analyzed the lakes sediment layers including fico components to trace how the human population at coca had changed response to things like environmental and weather conditions. We did an episode on the Hartford Circus Fire in March of Twenty fifteen and we've done various updates since then about efforts to identify remains of some of the victims. This included exhuming bodies from Northwood cemetery to analyze their DNA in particular. The bodies of two women were exhumed to try to confirm whether either of them was grace. Dorothy Smithfield who is still classified as missing. However based on a report from February neither set of remains is a match fields living granddaughter. So it's possible that back in Nineteen Forty. Four fifth fields remains were misidentified and released the wrong family. The State of Connecticut has turned to the DNA DOH project to see if they can find a match among people who've used DNA testing services for their own DNA. Currently there are five. Sets of unidentified remains buried in Northwood. Cemetery and six victims of the fire are still listed as missing efforts to identify remains are still ongoing but it is a time consuming process in part because those remains were so badly damaged in the fire moving onto the ongoing saga of efforts to exhume. John Dillinger's remains members of the Dylan's our family who had taken the matter to court withdrew their lawsuit in January. So for the moment this matter is settled and the remains will not be exhumed however an attorney representing. Dylan's nephew issued. A statement that this nephew could still file a new challenge at some point in the future if he chose previous hosts episode on. Dylan's came out on December fifth. Twenty eleven we actually. In a rare set of circumstances do not have a standalone exclamation section in this edition of Unearth. Because those two were really the biggest stories I think. Part of the reason is at least in the northern hemisphere the months from December through March or like not as conducive to getting into the ground during unearthed in October. Two Thousand Nineteen. We talked about shameless Blackley who had traveled to the Museum of Fine Arts Boston and the peabody museum of Anthropology and ethnology at Harvard to collect samples of ancient yeast and then he made bread with what he hoped was that ancient yeast and not contamination with modern used. He tweeted a thread on twitter about that bread that he made that. We talked about back in October. On March twenty ninth of this gear. He tweeted another thread about how he had made. Bread quote with leavening cultures sampled from ancient Egyptian baking vessels using ancient emmer wheat with an ancient Egyptian recipe and using ancient Egyptian tools. And no oven. He did this under embers in cooking. Pit It was like the last bats delicious according to Blakely Report and DNA analysis of the yeast starter is still forthcoming to confirm whether it really is ancient yeast. That part is really really tricky. There is wild yeast around us all the time. I've seen several people share threads about how to try to collect wild yeast to make a starter. Yeah there have been some yeast shortages during the attack. East guilt related to this. Because I don't do a lot of baking but I bought yeast just by accident shortly before this all started because I wanted to try a bread recipe cookbook that I have and so I have this tiny jar of Houston my fridge that I feel so guilty for having I feel like I can make bread immediately. We have a bread machine which someone gave to us that we had not used in the year since moving here and I was just at the point where I was like. Should we get rid of the spread machine? We have not used it in a year and then the pandemic was declared and it was much harder to get to the store and buy bread and just coincidentally I had bought a thing of red machine yeast sometime earlier this year. I guess. So it's like we've been making our own bread and the machine thanks. I also have some yeast guilt although I am we are making it like at least once a week or making a loaf of bread anyway that is not using ancient Egyptian techniques. That's literally using a machine. That's doing it for us so this this next thing is on a much more serious note. It is not exactly an episode update but the dog tribes have come up in a couple of episodes of our show including Paul coffey and King. Philip's war on March twenty seven th the US Secretary of the Interior. David Bernhardt issued a decision that the mashpee walks three hundred acres of reservation. Land on CAPE COD would be taken out of trust and the reservation would be disestablished. The federal government had taken the land into trust in two thousand fifteen but afterward to federal courts issued rulings that the government had not had the authority to do that. The mashpee weapon on tribe had a separate suit file. That was still pending. When the Department of the Interior's decision was announced the tribe itself was and continues to be federally recognized Tribal Council Chairman. Cedric Cromwell was quoted as saying quote. It feels like we've been dropped off into a new world. We've never seen before. I eat in this pandemic and the way my tribe is being treated with this happening. Now this is a direct hardcore blue to dissolving and establishing my tribe Cromwell and others involved also criticized the Department of the Interior for issuing this decision at four o'clock in the afternoon on a Friday during a pandemic representative Bill Keating who represents the congressional district where the reservation is located called the decision quote. One of the most cruel and nonsensical acts. I have seen since coming to Congress. The secretary should be ashamed. Keating is also one of the sponsors of a bill called Mashpee tribe reservation reaffirmation act which has passed the house but not the Senate that act would reaffirm the tribes reservation status as of the moment that we are recording this. It is really not clear what happens next. Many of the tribes projects had been put on hold because of the pandemic including the establishment of a school. That's part of the effort to revive the woman on language. Obviously a lot of the services that would have been helpful in negotiating. This process are also not essential or considered non essential or not operating. It is a deeply uncertain time for the tribe. And Its reservation land in our twenty nineteen year end unearthed. We talked about results of ground. Penetrating radar scans that were used to look for signs of mass graves associated with the nineteen twenty one massacre in Greenwood also known as the Tulsa race riot we didn't episode about that massacre in two thousand fourteen and we reissued it as a Saturday classic last year during the run of. Hbo's Watchman TV series which had several connecting points to that.

"For like Green Mountain traeger and the ad like they have all sorts stuff in there okay awesome. I've never cooked anything besides meat in my my smoker. We've done well if I'm going to do higher heat stuff for us. I typically use my my Weber. I don't usually use my smoker. Fail this type. You can do it but we've done bread. We've done cookies This was a potato debate had October FEST SAUSAGE POTATOES. Carrots onions Olive oil put on there for like an hour and that was it. It was like my wife. Right now isn't working. She's op because Kobe. So I am still working so it's sort of the opposite Jim where she's a home all time making stuff so now she looks after dinner but then it comes to the barbecue to actually go up there and do it. Yeah but this was something that she prepped. I came upstairs and tossed on the smoker and and we had it the like an hour and ten minutes. I think the Cook it at three seventy five delicious by the way. Let me let me say this. There's some conversation going on about our arteries right now in the chat room and I appreciate that but by the way you can do this street so the other night. We did SIM Zucchini and onions. You can throw some carrots in their roasted potatoes. Put It on the grill. Add some you know at some time or some. You know whatever you like. Parsley put that on there. And let that let those vegetables especially like. Maybe I'm one of those frog. Matt's make sure your onions are good size. You don't WanNa go to thin because a fall in man you can get maybe add a little bit of olive oil to that you can grill or you can grill or even smoke vegetables and still have a really good meal. The pulled pork brisket are very park. And the Jerky are very lean right. Right 'cause you've rendered all the fat out of your but there is ways to do this mark. I mean for for folks who want to eat a little healthier or at least the appearance that they're eating healthier you. We do almost all of our bell peppers we do all our keeney. We do our onions. Smoke SALSA TAKE. We have that pampered chef tool that will that will dice for you. You know. Get a couple of get a couple of things that garlic and put those in and spread that in there. Yeah we get more than just a red meat underplays to like. There's some fresh veggies and some potatoes. Well it's funny you joke about that. That's been the joke of my wife and I she's like you do a really good job making great meat. I really wish you could take care of the sides as well because I'm always like okay made the meat I'm done and she's like okay. What does the sides potatoes learning? How do all that stuff? I could find easy recipes. That's where things that would be huge for by meal. Prep and eliminating really hurt because my whole goal barbecuing is saying. Take that off from cooking like she does so much cooking around here. It's it's me really giving her a break. Oh Wow okay. Is that Bacon wrapped over lettuce cabbage. You have to explain this on. This looks delicious too but I. I'm also very very much interested in meeting that there was some. I found a recipe somewhere for a baking rap. Cabbage where you coordinate and your stuff. The inside I think butter and spices. And you're up with Bacon and you're sitting around you beat it. I don't I don't know it looks delicious though Patty's Day so we did that with a corn beef. Oh there you go so mike next time grilling I could get some gets in Broccoli. The problem is I don't grill too many stakes because of the fact that I only have the green mountain to need a gas grill. You can be you do need to chuckle. Weber. I'm maybe get matching too late for a chuckle takes as much time as it does for gas. I don't know if I had one and I'm not allowed to have another gas because of it really for another gas grill in the House. Because she doesn't like the taste of the food on that versus a charcoal. It's so good by amazing. I could be down for that. Yeah it's also one more thing my wife 'cause my wife's already out there using my tiny little camper gas grill and she's really good at it and like doing it now. She's better than that. So maybe chocolates. It's an extra step she will be willing to take. So you're versus reversers mistakes. You got some nice thick steak so nice roast reverse series or your smoke into one twenty toss on top of the coals where we're getting ready to mistakes and you're saying on the coals not onto agreed. You're saying I do both so the one with Caveman. Caveman style is usually just stray on the cold. Expensive what you mean like. It's weird you don't think it's going to work but it's so good album brown with guy showed it to me and how long you keep it on those coils but a minute total trip from what. I just get it on. Get off Yup. Yes sure cooked right six feet. So you're you're already getting the whole meet up to one hundred twenty degrees and you just turn the outside almost doing for texture taste on the outside and you really are for internal temp. There's a there's a terminology for Starts in Amnon? I can't remember the name of it. But it's it's making that cameras -ation the outside of the so you you basically get whole steak up to a reasonable temperature. And then you literally tossing onto onto the finish it off. So that was New Year's Eve when I was doing it cab. You gotta try it. It's amazing it's GonNa come off with colds and stuff attached. Yeah he's not. We need to get over with charcoal on it. Honestly like that's what I grew up on. The whole secret is silver cylinder in the middle of the grill. Fifteen minutes and you have your ready. Yeah wastes doing this. That cylinder cooking or mechanical is ready. And then you're pouring into the Weber. Earning them inside. Whoever and you don't use letter fluid direct little paper Underneath Light. It light it will go up in a chimney. It'll like the charcoal. Then when it gets hot fifteen minutes turn it over and just poured in there. You can that way. You can port anywhere you want. You can do indirect that way you can put in a corner even looming yourself to where you initially erect. Corral them out. You can kind of do it that way. And then in this case like with these you'd put them in a section level him out take the meat. Put it right on the on the on the on the end of this weekend sadly guys I do. I have a hard cut off right now but I'm GonNa follow them next week because I have a bunch of recipes in Mark Amy. Someone's for for my beef that I try to cook last week. I think my wife would like a lot better so we're going to be doing a lot of barbecuing the next few weeks. I'll be giving you guys in. Its Bark always good senior I'll see Mike. Thanks for C- next week. The The recipe I was going to give him on the Broccoli Super Easy donated grill for it. So take a cookie. Sheet puts tin foil on it catch Broccoli up into just little little chunks. Throw that on their great some ginger. Throw it over the top of that salt and pepper and put in the oven at four hundred for twenty minutes and you get Baked Broccoli. I never hellofresh find. I never thought of Baking Broccoli. We always steamed it and it was awful. It was wet and slimy and gross in cooking. Broccoli changed everything like Oh my God. This is great so the three things you can do that with Broccoli Cauliflower and Brussels sprouts too you can kinda do them. Yeah and the other thing we do instead of using injuries permits on. Yeah so you use olive oil firms and bake it and we all the time. 'cause I I don't like I'm saying I'd rather have Roth Roth. Vegetables underwood boiled yeah steamed or even we would do all. We'd go through all kinds of gyrations to steam these get him just right and they just always be mushy in kind of hellofresh got got US. Baking those and And you can get all kinds of recipes on the Internet for Baked Broccoli. I just never thought of doing it. That way and it was super delicious. You can have your Broccoli going so you know twenty minutes out off the grill. You can throw these in the oven and they'll come out fresh and ready to go for you for and I'm I'm a big steak and Broccoli Fan. That's just that's kind of my. Those are my two favorites two kind of pair together with the red wine. And I'm pretty much done. Maybe a cigar at the end. Yes yes inside paid. Yeah have you. So let's just talk about sauteed mushrooms. Have you done it so I have a? I have a plan for my grill. I can put in the grill and get really hot. Have you done on the grill where you throw the throw the mushrooms in there and add some stuff to him and just Kinda Saute them with the meat? I've done mushrooms Think how the Burger doesn't have the big Portabella heads the ones that about four inches diameter. And we'll take those take the steam out of it drizzle olive oil on top of it and put steak spice on top of it and then put those on the grill with the veins up and Cook Them for about twenty minutes and all the juice from mushroom comes into the veins and put those put a burger on top of that. But we have those mistakes. Just Portabella mushrooms on the side of the state But I do have a walk for my Weber. I've used but those we used to do this all the time. If we're having a steak we'd have a Puerto Rico beside it. Yeah one of the things. That's been interesting mark during this time. This crisis that we're in is when I go to the grocery store and I haven't been in three weeks so I this was. This was three weeks ago but like all the fresh produce was packed. Like we could have in that time I could have gotten anything. We were buying fresh celery. We were buying fresh fruits. They were all there. I don't know what it's like now but it is one of those things you know. Everybody made a run on core stuff. That would be around for a while men we. We had some of the best fresh vegetables we've ever had and then the other thing. Sammy gotten really my daughter. She's gotten really Kind of Cookie cookie in this cooking ish and she. We made our vegetable stock this week. So all the fresh stuff that we've gotten any there hellofresh where we bought. We put in a bag throw it in the freezer and she spent some time on Friday. Just boiling cooking that up for a couple of hours adding some stuff to it and then we get.

"Who two racks or I could do it in the oven but if I wanted to do on the grill what would i. What kind of temperature or what I kind of want to get to fifty. And Are you adding smoke too? When you're doing it could I if I wanted to yet. I add smoke if you look in the mirror. And if you wanted to K- in in two two in liquid smoke is just just a flavor rate that I'm putting in there to kind of give it that smokey flavor we've talked about liquid smoke here before two fifty for how long is its texture. More than time K. It takes about five or six hours. But you want it to where you can sorta start pulling it apart and then the trick is you put it in. Ziplock bags or like I haven't bowls here There and just let it aired by a little bit because if you put it in as bagging close it up. You're going to get all the moisture is going to come back out of the meat in coincide of the bags so that air dry for an hour or so and then vacuum seal it and it freezes fantastic. Do I have to vacuum seal it? I mean could I could a just get as much as I can and throw him in or yeah okay. I vacuum sealed because it keeps it. Fresh yeah so but I typically do is vacuum sealed. When I want to eat it. I pull a bag. Put it in a ziplock bag and put it in the freezer and I'll pull a couple pieces off. Let it the frost and the counter for half an hour. Then I go and eat when I wanna eat it now. You say a couple pieces like I'm used to Jerky when I when I buy Jerky in the store it's kind of in strips jerky stakes. So do you do. You cut these down into strips. Then no I'll take a couple of those quarter inch round pieces so it's about three inches diameter by quarter inch we start cooking. And it's Martin Luther instruments done so it's like a little piece of Can Even Bacon Round Disc Jerky k? And he just just tear it right off the bat and rip US Right off yeah. That makes that makes sense. Mike what do you think I like? I WANNA go make jerky right. That's I'm planning out my run tomorrow too heavy on the I have. We're GONNA start making Jerky boys well. And this is the thing so pretty economical a pretty good snack. Pretty good protein snack to have around in low fat high protein. Yeah NO IN MARK. One of the one of my thoughts is like okay. Not Okay and we said this last week to not everybody gets to stay home like and if you're out there and you're in healthcare and you're working and you're in the public listen we appreciate what you're doing out there. I don't I never want to give any indication that we're somehow favouring folks it or make light of the sacrifice that our folks who are working in the public and spending time helping the public and in healthcare. You guys are really the heroes through all this so I don't I don't WanNa make any light of that but there are a bunch of people at home at this point who you know. I'm kind of thinking this is where I'm at. I'm kind of in lockdown and I the other day I was thinking like I could easily put something on in the morning and and you know monitor it throughout the day right and then get six or seven hours on the smoker right. Mike. That's how I've been doing. I mean this has been so this past week leading up to when you asked me about last week's episode. That's this week's I was talking about. How you know being quarantined to home so I was pregnant for this week. I'm like you know what we got a barbecue all week. So we did. We did a roast. We did old pork us. We do remember all three different cooks all week. And it's the same but yeah you're right. It's being a stay at home. Be Able to monitor it and just enjoy. The smell really is my big thing. I love being able to like okay boys. Let's go outside for a little bit. Guan's tied off. Just read it and there's nothing better. It fills the neighborhood because I can always told my neighbors or smokin because that smell just wafts renters better than that. That's that Smell first of all. It's the would you know it's an early cookie. Just smell the wood and it has that meat flavors starts to get in you. Know they're getting closer like hey. I'M GONNA head over to the neighbor's house because they've got something going on the grill. Pork shoulder redone on Overto- to on Sunday. Yeah it's one of the Sunday you couldn't. We woke up in the morning when on eleven o'clock at night at eight o'clock in the morning we still smelled. Were we didn't smell smoke. Didn't smell the meat yet. We still smoke at about eleven o'clock about twelve hours in we started smelling the pork. Smell coming off of meat. Yeah there's no other good part of being home to is you get to let it so. This was the first time I was telling you guys pre show us. I'm cooking for an event and I have not been good. I have not learned from mark in cooking ahead of time. 'cause I never know how to? How do I keep this hot but not put it in the fridge and let me get cold so I've always cooked like right up to the point where we're going to eat a usually for me? That means Arosh at the end. Right Kirk cranking up the temp rushing at the end so this last pork but I did just the other night I let it go because I'm GonNa be home anyway. I let it just ride in. That took sixteen hour something that I probably rush into twelve thirteen hours Iran for sixteen almost sixteen and a half hours just staying on two hundred and twenty-five the entire time. Let it go. Tell it to three as my tempted. I like for our pulled pork and It made the world of difference and I'm talking massive difference. Hannah was like what did you do differently? This is the texture. The consistency everything. I'm like honestly it was just not rushing at the end letting go all the way and really letting it hit two or three honestly not like. It's like one ninety five years there. It's that eight degrees you think. Okay what's your five and two zero. Three two three throughout the entire cut of meat fade the biggest difference that stuff. I didn't even need my like I call him. What he called the clause a clause. I didn't need the clothes I put on my gloves and I just pulled it apart and it was just didn't even when you don't need those things a huge difference so yeah. I've learned a lot just from having the time to honestly devote 'cause I that's the one thing I've always struggled with PARV accusers. I struggle to have the time but when you have it man that make a difference and is it delicious. Do the opposite way. Finish finish noon and let it sit and wrapped in a cooler for five hours. That's what that's what this was initially if finished at ten. Am and night. So I put in a cooler from ten..
