Trump to attend GOP's spring donor retreat
"Trump is scheduled to speak at the cpac conference on sunday while americans go about living their lives. Political reports trump is expected to attend the rnc upcoming spring donor. Retreat in april quote. The rnc's donor. Retreats are a prime stop for future presidential candidates who use the events to establish relationships with wait for it. Major contributors Back with us tonight. Abc veteran washington journalists and associate editor and columnist over a real clear politics and matthew. Dowd he is the founder of country over party. We should point out. He is a texan. Who has a new appreciation for a hot shower. Since the cold dark outage of late and in the past matthew was chief strategist for the bush. Cheney presidential effort Back in oh four Welcome to you both. Ab you right with your usual candor and clarity quote just six weeks. After a deadly insurrection against the us government republicans are past their horror and hopping eagerly back on the trump train. The new twenty twenty one ticket price. They must buy into his big lie. That brings us to the question a. b. if trump is the banner under which they all must run under which they all must try to raise money he lost. How can that be a winning strategy. Whatever he says goes so you saw that. Nothing made it more clear than the house. Gop whip steve scalise going on tv. The sunday after his visit mar-a-lago where apparently they just talked about their families and how chill and relaxed. The president has been in his post presidency period at his resort and he just could not bring himself to say that this was a free and fair election. He said yes. Legitimately biden one when he was pressed by jonathan karl of abc news because elector said that on december fourteenth basically. He said a lot of sing. Swing states just didn't follow their own state laws and a lot of people are very concerned so what you do is instead of spreading the big lie. You never defy trump. You never disavow it and you never spell it you sit and you never discuss. How pernicious and dangerous. It is liz cheney and adam her and others have you just sort of try to circle around it because quote your constituents buy into it. And that's what's gonna keep you in trump's orbit if you want to keep your job in twenty twenty two. Matt voters have a funny way of kind of market testing ideas on their own and figuring out what. And what's gonna fly. How is this gonna fly especially in republican tightly contested suburban races two years from now. Well i think it does well in republican primaries. So i think that's the issue and that's the real problem for the republicans right now. They know that. Donald trump tests eighty eighty five percent popularity among the voters at will participate in republican primaries even in republican primaries in purple states or in suburban districts. That are swing districts. The problem is every time they venture into capturing that republican primary voth it more and more offense the people in the general election so it gets okay in a red state or deep red district to do that but when you start to try to win in suburban areas around houston suburban areas around dallas suburban areas in michigan suburban areas in california. It becomes exceedingly problematic. An i think that's the problem there in though it doesn't seem like they're in any way trying to confront that general election problem that they just keep pushing that often it's somehow they think is going to solve itself. It's almost as if they're going through this primary. They did in two thousand fifteen in twenty sixteen where they thought that donald trump problem would salve itself or he would peter out or nobody would deal within or somebody else would handle it and they didn't have to and then what they ended up having donald trump the republican nominee and then donald trump the republican president and now donald trump the republican president. So i do think it's his party. I don't think there's any question anymore that it's donald. The drill pay party is now the trump party and everything that donald trump does from town to what he cares about to. The conspiracy pushes is the republican party.
Tiger Woods seriously injured in car accident in Los Angeles but 'awake, responsive and recovering' after right leg surgery
"It was it was incredible. Um, look, this is the biggest story that we've had all day. Most of us spent most of the morning on early afternoon watching news coverage of the Tiger Woods accident and the update that we're getting is about as good as it could be after an accident. Like he had where he was driving likely at a high rate of speed is not known, but likely for the action that we had. That's what happened. He's on a stretch of road here and outside of Los Angeles and Rancho Palos Verde is That you can get to 80 miles an hour Really fast that really quickly And you know, Mike, you drove that same stretch of road over the weekend. You can go down one of those curvy roads and suddenly you don't even think about it. You're going 80 miles an hour, hitting the median crossing the road hitting a sign the car flipped over. Cut a path through the shrubbery on the side of the road. And Tiger Woods. In many hours of surgery, has very serious injuries to his legs, Compound fracture and at least one of them. We talk to Steven Gregory, who broke the news of the Tiger Woods car accident earlier in the show today and said that look, it was pretty gruesome from the waist down from the legs for Tiger Woods compound fracture. The bone was sticking out of one of his legs. But other than that he didn't have Any life threatening injuries. So now it's about Tiger Woods, his legs and what's next for him, which is as good as you could be. When you see the accent? He had that we're not talking about life or death we're talking about now. Hey, can he play golf again? But certainly for a while it was How is he? Can he live? Is he not what's going on with this? And it was just one of those. Stories where you want, it bore information right away. It's like I don't care I wanted I wanted I wanted because you hear the story and you immediately assume the worst. And of course you're thinking about Kobe Bryant. What happened? And Oh, Kobe and Tiger and now and it was the first hour or so of this story or first out 90 minutes or so. It was just an insane amount of what What is it? We don't know. We know it was serious and he's in the hospital. And the first reports were moderately critical condition. He was in which I don't really know that that's a thing, but that's what we were told. And it was. It was just information flying by you when it was hard to even pay attention. It was just tell me something. Tell me something. Tell me something. Yeah, He really just Carter started to flow right and we had a three man text chain going back and forth very quickly, based on whatever new information Started to come out Steve Gregory K. F I Here in Los Angeles. I joined the show earlier tonight. You know the first to start delving into deeper and giving some details, And then the speculation begins and all the heartfelt Wishes of support and sympathy, and it really just kind of escalated quickly to where it's like. All right, Let's push that away because you don't wanna call it noise because it was a lot of positive energy coming to the To the situation and a lot of love right thinking about all the different aspects as golfer and and well pitchman, Tomo every being a household name. Too, you know, looking at, you know the family man and then the gulf side of things. So, like all these different angles start flowing through and you're trying to just push that all out of the way to go. Okay, what happened? As you said, I drove that stretch on Saturday and they have a couple of spots in it where you have the runaway truck lanes. You know where If you're having break issues, right, it's a different paved differently. So it helps toe slow things down a bit of different incline, etcetera. So those air on the road and you get into these curves and bends that You know, In this case, it's visibilities not not an issue. Aziz. We've talked about it with other subjects that have come up. Certainly what we would think about the horrific tragedy of the Kobe Bryant incident a year ago at visibility playing in and if there is a fog on the highways there in that stretch, Yank it gets pretty dense and with the quick bends that you have You know, could be even more problematic. Obviously, that didn't play here today, but it is one that you've really got to, you know, tenant to as much as we may have laughed at it and driver's Ed This is one of those stretches of road that tenant to use the real thing because you go from 50 and you start going down that highway and down ramp kind of situation. All of a sudden you're at 70 75. You're not hitting the accelerator. You're just going with with what The road grade is so I could see where it escalates. And so now it becomes the Let's dial it back and figure out how this came to pass and And feel fortunate that as we watch the photos and video of the wreckage that he got into a hospital to get the first part of

Who Wins Or Loses If There's An Increase In The Federal Minimum Wage?
"The covid relief bill moving through congress includes a higher minimum wage for someone like lisa harris. Who works grocery store outside richmond. Virginia that make a big difference able to afford the things that i need to get by day to day without having to ask one ability to feel that i am a contributing member to byatti. I mean they say thank you and that were essential. That were heroes. But we can't feed our families off of being heroes scaling up from seven. Twenty five an hour to fifteen dollars. An hour is still running into resistance though and testing democratic unity in congress. David wessel is following. The debate is of the hutchins center at the brookings institution. David good morning. Good morning steve. So there's always case made against raising the minimum wage. We're told that if you raise the minimum wage employers are just going to hire fewer people. What's the evidence here. Well textbook economic says if you raise the price of something there's going to be less demand for it. In this case less demand from employers for low wage essential workers now the question is how many winners and how many losers one influential estimate comes from the congressional budget office. They estimate that by twenty twenty five which is when the wages supposed to get to fifteen dollars. It would mean twenty. Seven million people would be getting a raise. Nine hundred thousand fewer people would be in poverty but one point four million fewer people would be working or not having got hired on the other hand economist. Aaron debate at the university of massachusetts at amherst has been looking at what happens when states raise minimum wages and he argues that the latest evidence suggests that. Cbo is overestimating the ill effects of raising the wage. A fifteen bucks okay. So a lot of people benefit. Some people may be hurt. But there's an argument over how many people are actually hurt. That's the point of view of the employees. What about the employer. business owners objected. Here well it would raise their payroll costs for sure now. Some employers would may discover that they have better workers or less turnover so it might not hurt them that much some would suck it up in the form of lower profits somewhat. Pass it onto their consumers in the form of higher prices and some would get by with fewer workers are cut the hours of their workers they would clearly be very painful for some businesses and particularly for some businesses like those in the fast food industry that already been hit hard by the covid pandemic but really interesting new academic paper that looked at ten thousand mcdonald's outlets many of them in states or cities that have raised. The minimum wage found that nearly all of them raise prices to cover the extra costs and interestingly it found that despite higher labor costs they didn't more of them didn't install high-tech touch screen ordering that potentially saves labor which suggests that consumers would pay but workers would benefit as well. David you've referred a couple of times here to the fact that some states have already raised the minimum wage. Well above what the federal minimum is. When you look at this debate does it. Matter what part of the country we're looking at it matters a lot. Twenty nine states and the district of columbia have set their minimum wages above the federal seven. Twenty five and hour minimum and so have several cities raising the minimum wage to fifteen dollars. An hour across the country would have a huge impact on some states in the south that are paying seven two thousand five hundred minimum wage or state like west virginia where the minimum wage is now. Eight dollars and seventy five cents an hour. That's of course politically important. Because democrat senator joe manchin has indicated. He's against a fifteen hour wage and his opposition could be fatal to the proposal but a fifteen dollars. Minimum wage would have much less impact in states. Like california where it's already set to go to fifteen dollars. It's thirteen dollars now. And in florida voters in november approved a referendum that takes their minimum wage to fifteen bucks over the next few years no matter what congress does anything special about going up to exactly fifteen an hour. Not really it's politically important. The fact is that the minimum wage has been stuck at seven twenty five since two thousand nine. It would be close to nine dollars. An hour fifty kept up with inflation since

A Ouija board mystery
"Welcome to kiss myths and mysteries. Heiner host kit chrome in my month-long search our investigation into different forms of nation. I touched on the wage board last friday. And almost as a cautionary tale and immediately received some emails. Asking me to back that up. So i put it to my team of urban legend writers to come up with some information. That was something. I can validate with police. A names and numbers and read over this podcast so here. It is in the small seaside town of dungeness bay. The bodies of seventy five year old eric ward and his seventy two year old wife. Mildred were found on the beach without a mark on either body. The clothes were soaked with seawater. The autopsy report indicated. The water was found in their lungs. The bodies were discovered by a jogger who tracks were the only ones found on the beach when the police arrived locals testified that the couple were often seen walking the beach. at twilight. The couple's adult son clayton ward. Came up from california that after three weeks of intense investigation no suspects were revealed and clayton had to get back to his job as a technology specialist for the silicon valley giant apple but his parting comment to the dungeon is bay. Police was that when he returned he'd be able to identify the murder of his parents in eighteen. Ninety one the patent was granted to elijah bond for the we g board but one of the first mentions of the review board used was in asia around eleven hundred. Ad and historical document documents from that era but the design we know today was based on the talking boards of ohio produced by kennard six months after his first visit to dungeness baked clayton more restrictions on the list of clues. He assured police that if followed would lead them to the murderer of his parents. Seven days later after following the various clues. The police brought in steve hawks. The grounds keeper employed by the wards who under intense interrogation confessed to the drowning of the couple. He claimed that eric had kept a large amount of cash in a safe that he planned on taking. He was however unable to explain how he was going to get into the safe. When asked by the police where he got the clues clayton more replied that he belonged to a small group that used the ouija board to solve crimes and that when his father was contacted his father's spirit told him steve had knocked him unconscious and then dragged him into the waves thinking they would be washed out to sea where they would drown but he was unaware that it was low. Tide and they'd be washed up on the beach with the changing tide. He further toll clayton that. If the police went to steve's house they would find the bloody tire iron news to knock him unconscious. Clayton return to california but when police attempted to contact him with further questions about the clues they found his address was nonexistent. Phone number disconnected no record of employment at the apple corporation. Then investigator that was brought in on the case discovered that eric and ward owned a ouija board and from journal they cap learn that they were often the host of the spirit calling itself. Dozo now we g board users will tell you that. Zoe is the demon spirit of the ouija board that sometimes he becomes protective of those that. Hold the open through the board that allows him to enter this world. Where the wards holding the door open for a demon spirit that manifested into the image of a protective son that never existed and when they were murdered by their grounds keeper was a door that allowed so to pass back and forth between this world and is shut. In which world is he
Why Some Texas Residents Now Face Huge Electricity Bills
"Think for a moment about that. Famous survey suggesting that many people would struggle to pay an emergency expense of even a few hundred dollars now think about texas where some people suddenly have utility bills in the thousands of dollars. It's a side effect of last week's storm that overcame the power grid. People who managed to keep their power are now paying for it. Christopher connelly is with member station k. e. r. a. in and joins us. Now good morning. Hi steve what's an example of the kind of costs that people face right so well. I talked to shannon mars. She has one of those big bills. She lives in frisco which is a dallas suburb with her husband. Mike and three kids in january. They paid two hundred fifty seven bucks for electricity and as of saturday. The families electric bill for the month of february was ten thousand one hundred eighty dollars and seventy six cents during those real. Yeah during those really cold days last week. The marches were paying one or two thousand dollars a day for electricity shannon. Maher said it makes her sick to her stomach to think about it too awful and there's nothing you can do and i've been really stressed about it and ten thousand dollars is a ton of money. I guess you gotta explain the texas system here. Because i get a utility bill. I pay the utility bill. I don't even necessarily know what my costs four day is. How does this even happen right. So this is wonky but but bear with me here so. Texas has a deregulated market for electricity. It is designed so that when there's a shortage of electricity of the price will go up in power. Companies will have an incentive to generate more electricity that deregulated market also for the sale of unusual policies. Like the ones. The mars is have plans with variable rates for electricity and those are the customers who are ending up with these sky high bills. The mars family spent hours trying to switch to a different company last week to find one with a more traditional fixed rate plan and normally they would be able to do that but the storm made that impossible so they were just sitting there watching the charges on their credit. Cards rack up. Does this suggest that this deregulation doesn't work well. It works great when the weather's good but you know it appears that there weren't market incentives in this market system for power providers to make sure that they were prepared to weather a massive winter storm. There have been warnings about that for years. Actually and the system broke down almost exactly like this about a decade ago. You know the other issue that we're seeing is that. The deregulated system assumes that consumers will fend for themselves that they'll find electricity plan where they won't get hosed if a big storm rolls in cable weight from the consumer rights group public citizen says. That just doesn't really happen. In reality people have a lot of different things tugging at their attention and their bandwidth and so a lot of our economic decisions are actually made on autopilot and therefore all these theories like that. We will shop for the cheapest and best plan for ourselves. They don't play out state trying to help. Now yeah so. There will be hearings looking into the issue. This week governor greg. Abbott says no one should have to pay these exorbitant bills and yesterday the public utilities commission temporarily blocked companies from sending out bills or shutting off customers power for non-payment abbots also saying that the state will force power plants to weather is so they're prepared for the next storm. I got to say this. Level of government intervention feels anathema to the way republicans have governed this state for decades. But there is so much political pressure right now to make changes because even as people are just starting to repair burst pipes and get the water running again. Christopher colleague of kera. Thanks thank
New York state Senate set to pass package of nursing home reforms
"Aimed at changing up the way things are accounted for within the state's nursing home industry. Right as governor, Cuomo and his administration are being investigated for how they handle Cove. It really related matters and nursing homes during the pandemic. New York lawmakers say the goal is more transparency and accountability in this package of bills. One measure would force nursing homes to post any violations on their website, another calls for more stringent inspections and infection control measures. Richard Mullet with a long term care community coalition says few fines have been given out since the start of the pandemic. The only thing that really stopped many facilities from providing extremely sub standard care is the threat of a financial penalty. Another bill takes direct aim at Governor Cuomo mandating the state compile nursing home deaths, regardless of whether the resident was transferred to a hospital. Cuomo isn't finding too many in his corner at this point, White House press secretary Jen Psaki on ABC s this week declined to defend or criticized the governor. There, of course, will be a process. The investigations will leave that to others to determine the appropriate law enforcement authorities to determine how that path is going to move.

What OPAWG is Doing to Build the Podcasting Community (and What You Can do to Help)
"Hey mark thanks for joining me today on. The sounds profitable podcasts. It's a pledge to be. Thank you awesome. Awesome insert today. We're gonna digging deeper into the article. I wrote about the podcasts analytics workgroup. I thought that was a really interesting place to start. When i started with sounds profitable because i really like the idea of another organization out there that was looking to help everybody gather information together and potentially have alternatives to just the ab solution out there. So i figure it's a. It's probably a great idea for us to start off with asking you to explain opa and what inspired you to start it. Okay yeah absolutely so it is. It's a lofty organization with a terrible name. I think i was hoping it was going to be a placeholder. It's what we're going with For now so back in a may twenty nine thousand nine hundred last year was a as we're recording anyway. I was looking around at some of my analytics data for the podcast hosting company the iran and one of the questions that sometimes gets asked as about how customers can move data from one provider into potent for example and. I thought it'd be really interesting to see what can be done about ways that we can standardize the tracking information that we have about each episode. How many times. It's been downloaded roughly. By whom and i started thinking more about things like the and being a programmer by by nature. I guess i thought that the kinds of problems that the i obey are tackling for podcasters in so much as they are calculating like what can what do we consider to be a download of a podcast episode. That felt to be something that we could tackle in an automated basis in a way that could be easily replicated uneasily run easily automated as i say the didn't necessarily need a huge amounts of people cost. It'd be time to set up initially but then the day would be that. It was something that that you would be able to run in the same way that we now have things. Like letting crypt for handling. Ssl certificates So that you now you don't have to pay multiple hundreds of dollars to get an s Sasol's difficult for your website. You can get one for free by using this system. Yeah i i think that's great and that's one thing that i wanted to kind of break down. There is that the i. a. b. you know has a fee per year depending on the size of your company. I looked to join his an independent. And i can get in like the first two years a startup rates at five thousand dollars now. Five thousand dollar fee doesn't do anything if i wanted to get certified. It's an additional cost. And that cost us what two ways one is a payment to the ab and the other is a payment to certification company. Like a like an auditing company that comes in and confirms that you adhered to the ab sanders by doing like tech audit and reviewing all your data and so james cridland pibe. News has his own self hosted podcast awesome. It could cost them forty to sixty thousand dollars easily for him for one year to be certified with the iab. Alternatively eager kicked the numbers over the cdn data over to like triton and be validated there. But you know that's a couple grand a month to and at the end of the day like that's still it's not that far off from what the charges so what you're talking about here is instead of something that each individual host would get audited instead. We have like a central piece of tech that is audited that's maintained in improbably. Third party verified that is able to allow hosting companies and other platforms to call in do a self certification and it focuses on that central point right instead of like the deep dive required for each individual partner. Absolutely and i think the the thing to to tack onto mr cridland example is he could use something like chargeable. Which i guess is now. Abc's fide he could use that but as someone who writes about for example listener privacy. There are questions around that that you would imagine there would be with any of these third party analytics services you know. There's a reason they make that infrastructure available for for people. Like a steve's especially of people to use for free and so without getting into the weeds on on that particular discussion. That might be a reason. Not to put words in james's mouth but that might be one of several reasons why he'd be not when you use a third party service because that's something that he does writes about.

Take A Trip To The Island Of Crete
"Let's start today's show with a look at what you can find when you visit the largest of the greek islands crete. It's where the earliest advanced civilizations in europe were found more than four thousand years ago. We're joined by greek travel. Experts david and anastacia guy tanu. Our conversation was recorded prior to the covid. Pandemic closures david. How're cretans. The people who live on crete different from greeks and their outlook. I don't think there's a proud of person to be found in greece than creighton. Credence are extremely proud of their long history. There island and they're wonderful food. The people from crete really see themselves as being a little bit different to the people from the greek mainland anesthesia. When you think of the pride of crete people and the traditions. How does that survive in their dress. In the way the look when we travel there you can find that still worn by older people in the largest cities bad. You find it definitely in out in the country and in small villages and the further up you go on the mountains the more you find that and you have this. Very particular scoff. That they were on their head. It's black of course and usually there is also big moustache underneath definitely because that's Masculine thing and they have a black shirt in. They have brown trousers. That up. The very distinct and to create and usually black boots and i was struck when i went to crete that these traditions survive more there than elsewhere in europe. I mean everything's becoming modern in the same issue travel around more and more but increased. You do find those traditions alive David i was an increase just last june and having been there for a while i was wondering with ride. See some of these things like the old britches and the long boots and the the coach but to my great surprise they have not disappeared in fact they've now become trendy and symbols for the young symbols for the young. Would that be. Is that sort of an expression of independence. I think it's because they see themselves different and they wanted to let people know that they're proud of their traditions. There's lot of guns returned. There used to be synonymous with crate guns. But you see less of these days although when you go walking plenty of cartridges from the hunting season is that right what would they be hunting farm firm and anything that moves birds. Rabbits has if you're an athens. How easy is it to get down to create. It couldn't be more simple because there's Boats that do the trip overnight. And there's lots of lights with a gna so let's see you got five days crete. What would you do david. If you're helping me plan my very if going have five days. I would stick to the north and i would stick to iraq leo which is the capital and access point fo the famous minoan palace of knossos. And then i would go across honey. Which is the second city on crete. And it's just a beautiful Old venetian city from honey. Can't you go up to the top of the mountain in hike down the gorge of samaria. Have you ever had that. yes i have. what's it like. well you have a very long descend and the beginning. It's in kilometers about four kilometers to go down. You just go down a winding backing back inbound down and then you move through the gorge. But they're really beautiful spots at that gorge in you meet people. There are people there. There is once goal the gate in the result shepherd they who knows of course every guide and every person who goes often through that gorge unusually. He has cheese. And if you know you can well he can bring some other stuff out as well and you see. Also a lot of the very unique flora and fauna of crete and the. Raise your liking usually. You're uc wild ibex.

If i remember correctly the tourist generally catch a minibus or something up for the almost like at sunrise and then they walk switch backing down then. They have a long hike along the river with little places to swim along the way they reach a very very narrow part in the gorge where you can almost stretch your arms out and touch either of the sheer cliffs and then at the bottom you have a beautiful remote beach and boat waiting to take you to the next town from where you catch the shuttle bus back to your home. Base is still basically the routine that is still the routine la. They have come up with an alternative for the lazy person who does not want to do the whole walk. You can take a boat to.

"For your tv show the radio the books that cetera but you have been fairly affront this season about your support for the biden harris ticket. Tell us about that. Well i just believe in government. And i i want people who are committed public servants running my government. I was just thinking about it. It's like the last four years if you like strangers have ransacked my house I and i'm i'm kind of. I'm kind of offended that people who wear flags on their lapels employed. They're more patriotic than me. I some people say i- i- america abashed because of my travels. I come home. And i. I explain how other countries do it. And i think that's better for their people in the interest of democracy and justice. And for all i mean these phrases just come out of out of our sacred documents and i feel it's america loving to care about my country a lot of times by reading to'real i find myself. I'm just kind of bait read. What do you call rebate or something on on talk. Radio shows on conservative. Talk radio shows and cheryl talk to you. But i i need to a an understanding ahead of time that you're not gonna question my commitment to america as a patriotic citizen. You can question my opinions. But i care about this country as much as any far right winger and we just have different world experiences. My world experiences getting out there and understanding the other ninety six percent of humanity and coming home and sharing how i think our country can be a better place and i'm very excited now when you see. The the cabinet picks that biden has. It's no drama. These people are are just passionate about making her life or our country a better place. They're smart they're nice. They're caring people. They they know what they're doing. We know a person in charge of education will care about education for everybody. A person charge of housing will care about housing for everybody and that makes our country stronger. And even if all you care about at your bottom line. I think it's very good news speaking of your bottom line though a legendary line from michael jordan before he Essentially to get involved in politics which he did this year was republicans buy sneakers to. How does your bottom line do when you come out issues like this rick news. Well you know. I get a lot of cross at tell me. They'll never travel with me again. I don't think they could find your upon a map. They've got no interest in travelling. They're surprised that i'm political. You know for fifteen years. I've had a book that's been quite well known called travel as a political act and i would say half the people who take our tours would be republicans and half of the people that take our tours would be democrats. There's thirty thousand people. Took our rick steves bus tours in two thousand nineteen i think From equally all over the country. And i just think there's a difference between people that are close to the world and just want to shut the place down and people that are have a good healthy difference between conservative and liberal approaches to challenges facing our country. I mean i voted for reagan and i used to respect the republican party and i think deep in their hearts that they were afraid of being intimidated by a guy who can primary them out or whatever i think there would be better dialogue between conservatives and Progressive people in our country. Right now and I frankly i'd rather have a bus load of of Republicans to take around europe than a busload of tree hugging. You know liberal people from bellingham. I i wanna make a difference..

"We are recording. Okay Iraq Sam. Nice to see. Rick Steves one of my favorite people on the planet. Sam Nice to hear from you again and we had a good conversation a while ago. Now it's all different world yes I profiled you. My profile view came out in the New York Times magazine last year and part of the reason I wanted to call and talk to you was you and I are supposed to be hanging out. That's right it was one of the last things I deleted from waking up. I'm Sam Anderson and I'm a staff writer for the New York Times magazine and last year. I wrote a profile of Travel Guru. Rick Steves Hi. I'm Rick Steves. For many travelers quintessence have. Spain is found here and Lucia. Rick Steves for anyone. Who doesn't know he's really an evangelist of travel today like Turkey. In general. Gazillion is Muslim. The power of Rick Steves is that this is not just a business for him. It's a whole life. Philosophy set me means the ball tough life tastes like that when it goes from the herring. Okay well this is the learners dose here. But I'll give it a go. He wants to empower average everyday Americans. Who MIGHT NOT OTHERWISE? Leave the country to get out of their comfort zone and go explore the world they give an insight into a people who in a thousand years have evolved from fearsome some marauding vikings tap people like me and. I've been thinking about them a lot since. We'VE ALL BEEN HUNKERED DOWN. Because here's a guy who's in constant motion he just thrives on moving from one place to the next he's always travelling and suddenly the entire world is shut down. It's like a switch was flipped and his whole life mission is just cancelled. All these dreams that have been dashed are actually put on hold and so I was wondering what does Rick Steves Time. And maybe an even bigger question. If Rick Steves can't travel then who is Rick Steves? It was nothing on. My calendar is just a blank slate for my future. Wow so what? Have you been doing day by day instead of hanging around with me? Well the big part of my life is a part. That was always squeezed away by workaholic. And that's just enjoying being alive in this privileged little world. I've got a nice place in Edmonds. Half are north of Seattle. I've got a view of the mountains. it seems like the the volume of the birds have been cranked up. When I step out of the morning there's less traffic and more more bird sound and I've been thinking about dusting off old. Passions got out my trumpet and the Valves Heddon wiggled for literally decades and I could still play the trumpet. Which is fun. I didn't even know you played the trumpet. I thought I knew everything like to keep a few things to pull out later. One other elements of life. Have you been finding yourself enjoying? I mean it sounds ridiculous but I have never cooked in my whole have never cut into an onion in my entire life. What I had never really made pasta until now and my gosh. I've had a bad attitude about it. I've always been at parties and people put on a on a on. A what do you call it a bib. Or what was that you aprons Nathan Apron? They put it on an apron and everybody having a good time convivial. Lisin you know mushrooms in the kitchen and and just was awkward and I would just go to the living room and I'd sit there alone with my gypsum dip and now realizing what I've missed. Wow it's like somebody just told me there's a whole new world out there you can do something more than go out to eat. Bring home leftovers and make picnics. So I mean that's that's just a delight so you really expanding your horizons. Yeah well you know. I'm learning to travel without without an airplane tickets. Wow you know so a huge change. It's a great thing but I have to be mine. Mindful that I'm really privileged and when people think about this they think about it mindful of the fact that it hits a lot of people who don't have the ability to weather as well as we do pretty brutally But one way or another. We'll get through this. I guess. What am I big hopes? Sam Is that Sofa. Distancing doesn't become the norm. I just love the way the French kiss each other on the cheek I love a a nice high five when I get to the top of a little peek in Switzerland. And you WANNA sit next to a stranger and share your French fries in an English pub I think one of the great pleasures that you provide people all the time is the fun of traveling vicariously and I. I remember people telling me That you often get letters from prisoners saying that even in prison people watch your show and feel like they're out in the world and so I wonder if that aspect of your of your teaching Is even more powerful now. If anything from people about that I actually have because one of my themes lately is this virus can stop our travel plans but it cannot stop our travel dreams. We're not in business to make money right now. We're our mission is to keep people's travel dreams alive and to give people something positive we just a couple days ago designed Big Steve's your Bingo where the cards have all of the goofy cliches that show up in almost every one of my shows and we've got we've made that available and people can drinking game if you want but it says okay. Hold on wait. What are the? What are the key triggers in the Rick Steves Travelled Drinking well it's a BINGO board. They've got all of your If I use alliteration both stirs saw and stokes the appetite nor if I have a thinly-veiled guidebook plug I've been recommending that Kaskel farm and my Britain guidebook now for over twenty years Dorky. Joker if I use the word for convivial you'll enjoy CONVIVIAL CAMARADERIE. That convivial had loonier charming convivial. If I enjoy a drink locally homeboy here comes another wine if old baby. Oh baby if I have. Innuendo towering high above is a skyscraper built in the nineteen seventies in erection. Like this was a big deal in communist times. I can't say anything explicit but I can have plenty of Innuendo. The lady strokes the UNICORNS Horn in the Lyon looks out at us to be sure we get the double overtime. That's kind of what I do almost almost every show. So you can certainly get Bingo if you watch the show and keep on travelling child. I'm developing this. This notion that you can. You can play a little game of bringing Europe into your home. Oh okay which might be kind of. Maybe it's not to tell me about that. What's well people who are addicted to European travel? This is kind of frustrating time for them. So I've been thinking about a few ways that you can bring a little bit of Europe into your home and I don't know how workable it is for everybody but you can wash your socks and sing. You can actually Serve Coffee to your quarantine mates in tiny cups and charged for refills. When you get real desperate you can eat a slug with lots of garlic and color. Desk are go And I actually made a little table with the dish for coins. Upside of my The toilet in my house and you can charge family members for a few sheets of toilet paper over desert for Europe. Always an entrepreneur. Even in your own home so I make Europe my beat. That's I do For Me Europe is the wading pool for world exploration. Even my favorite country might be India so know that your favourite countries India. Yeah I love India. When did you first go to India? I've been to India. My best trip was in seventy eight after I graduated college These are from the days of. That's great that's great photos of you with the long hair and the beard and always the classic traveller in the first time ever smoked. Marijuana was in Afghanistan. I knew that. Yeah Yeah and I think the one of the happiest days of my life was hanging out in Katmandu with a bunch of people who did not depend on to get high you the the straight laced repressed. Protestant kid right you know. They were selling marijuana. The market as a medicinal herb and it just seemed quite natural there so okay I'll be like do as the locals do temporary local. There's place in Katmandu called. Pien Chai and the famous all the travelers for their fresh out of the Oven Apple Pie in the Himalayas. Be surrounded by all this new wonder and people that clasp their hands together and say Nama Stay. I salute your virtues. Feels like a Tabet in dreaming and I just thought life is so good and that was I mean I hate to say one of the happiest days of my life and must have been smoking pot in the same breath but you know it was a beautiful thing and you. You became a real powerhouse in that battle for Leo's Ation in Washington your home state and then travelled around to other states on these of barnstorming tours to get it legalized. And that's my big. I see that as a contribution to our democracy in our society not that it's pro marijuana. It's pro civil liberties you know I'm a traveler and for me high is a place in sometimes. Sometimes I want to go there One of my favorite things that I learned about you when I was at your house was the existence of this journal. That you've been keeping for most of your life now and you write in only when you're high that not many people know about that until you wrote about that in our magazine and Yeah. That's a treasure in someday. I'M GONNA continue adding to it but it is. It's forty what is it. It's probably forty years of Brilliant that came to me absolutely. Actually this is what I do. When I'm traveling anyways is I always have a little more skinny book? A little note pen in my pocket. And you grab whatever flutters by. It's like butterflies grab it. It's gone.

They're not going to make a change. Anything the content part of it. Yeah nobody has said anything to narrow the content of the show. That doesn't mean that they won't because it was a catchall they said any just anything that relates to sexual harassment or misogyny or any of that. Shit Fuck No. That's not what I mean. It's just harassment. That goes on. How many bucket Harry Minihan said in this podcast? He thinks women are better than the men are. Men Better Than Women Rather. That'll buy them in the ASS someday.

Yeah yeah so I was. He Francis thing I forget he's he's like six things. Aren't the story yesterday. The one I sent you the daily Beast Story Right now Matt. Yeah but it's it's we could go over it but it's why it's about the same pornos harassing this Nascar writer. So also him utter. Which is I mean. I mean for fucking Christ six times. We've done this because you're going to write this article. I don't know why you would even yet. With satirical runs lifestyle blogger. So why even go any further I mean I? Don't I have to say this? If you're grown man who's covering the Nascar in some people fucking tell you the fuck off in your twitter account. That's I'm sorry. That's not harassment. No just not harassment. It's not even saying attack which seemed to be as big as a joke of courses. I mean or he has means you just don't have like how can you not laugh at that and find that fucking the mean guy? That's what Portnoy said he's got he's GonNa meet a death. The mean guys album. It doesn't do much for me. I don't WanNa be you know. I don't want to step out of line. I understand. Everyone is hilarious. But he doesn't. He's not that doesn't do it for me. But people seem to like him but also that like it's a fucking joke shown the guy putting his head in the toilet or something taken literally attack would mean say meemaw literal attack would mean like a physical attack. But what I'm saying important was not saying that everyone knows why am the story is the same old greatest fucking hits and so does the other one. Like we're talking about fucking Samantha. Ponder again that like date. Those days are over this. Trust ME I. Nobody barstool other means as an interesting. I can believe me. I pay attention. These podcasts all the time. Porno is a corporate stooge. Should love him loser at this point. Still Ruffling feathers. Yeah I mean. He's you know skinny. Orange ugly and happy for the last few months of his life collecting millions of dollars and being a little davimoss corporate stooge boy so when they write the story they don't even know the real thing about the old port the. While doing dead. The don't worry I what was named. The woman wrote the story. You're talking about the the penn national one the other two yesterday I see the first one and then. Oh hold on let me. It's Robert Sylvan. Silverware Silverman the woman's greatest hits which is you know. They want to be associated with company. That has this reputation. It's just like oh I wonder if that over Barstool has obviously changed and some would say for the better whatever but like their content is not as. They're not as vulgar mean-spirited as they used to be. I'm argue probably. Never really were that. I would never put mean-spirited overall. Did PEOPLE WANT TO LABEL IT. But they still labeled like that. Yeah it's but will that ever. I wonder when that will change. Well Auto Stern and there's a lot of similarities between porno instead. Dave Dave is like I'm half kidding around. I mean day would never do a thing where he's like. You know it's wonderful. It's wonderful being I can. That's just not. That's not stern wanted to be portable. Still enjoys being hated. Yeah like that's not. You know. Stern is stern wants to be loved. I guess so. Yeah but I just wanted. Your mainstream media is age is the age of like the hardcore Barstool fans. Then maybe it'll be a little different but I don't think so. I think they're they're always going to say this woman wrote the story. And then she got a bunch of tweets which is like well. This is part of being a woman these two and it's the same old Michael Read. That's why I oh my print out the story and go through and we've read these fucking things fifty thousand times you know Penn. National clearly is fine with the content and the Barstools side for now. We'll see in six months from now or three months from our nine months from now a year. Whatever they reach. Eric is like you know they've got a problem with this content. You guys talking about this. Then you know we'll walk. I with no hard feelings. I came here with the idea that I'll be to say what I want. And I've been able to say what I want if that changes. They're a corporation. I respect that I don't you know that's fine by the way. I don't think that's going to happen. We don't do like there's not. There's no misogyny there's no I don't you know it doesn't it doesn't work. I should WANNA pay. Does that is tough in a weird way to be on our side of the argument because a couple of reasons. It's just the same shit over and over city where you down. Because how many times are you going to say? He was kidding. It's comedy website. That's not what he meant but also like barstools attitude about it kind of just ignore them so it gets exhausting. When we're like well fuck you for writing this. Because they don't really even care right. Yeah yeah there's something yeah yes. I think that's true but I I do like the idea of just saying just ignoring to some extent I always wanted to go at people but like we've got this five times. I asked him come on. He said No. Thank you nice about it so like you know we're GonNa go through the greatest hits. I mean it's just a rinse and repeat. It was something new comes out great but I mean you know but the answer mask question from early. I've never heard anything about I. Don't know a reading coach yesterday. It sounds like they're gonNA stay out of the content side which would be smart. I'm sure they nothing about. That'd be like me jumping in and saying. Hey you know you should put your fucking slot machines here or something. I don't know anything about their world so leave me alone. I'll leave you alone. I think we'll be good porno big thing when he sold to. Churn was to make sure that they stayed out of content. I assume porno doesn't have nearly as much control over the sale. Why I assume that would be a factor. I am sure it's I don't know. I know specifics on that end but I'd be stunned if it wasn't the guy. Dave seem very timid during the process before the sale was done and now the sales done. He doesn't seem timid anymore to me. I haven't really paid my. I haven't talked to Dave since people online. I haven't talked to Dave. Since last time I talked to Dave on texture and was or in person was in person than Miami last time I saw them. So what's that month ago if that we left Miami a month ago. Yeah so you're to me you know we've you know we do our thing they leave us alone there Maybe Texan both Wilbur. But Yeah I think maybe the Oh yes but I mean like but they. They don't care. I mean they don't know what the State is. No what I'm talking about. You can play Dave. I swear to God you could play Dave yesterday on his showing. Who's on and on? You could play him the Sporty Mackenzie so from yesterday. And He'd be like Oh that's she's always talking sports these back in the sports. No you wouldn't say. Oh He's talking sports now I'd say I figured you'd talk some sports on that show. It's not as much as everything else. Yeah so I mean like they don't care which is great and they'll never he'll never listen to. You'll never which is I think a good thing I was the other. Oh the mural thing yeah well I mean. It seems like that's going to get solved but just good. The Bossou says a mistake has been made a gas. Open his mouth shit even alone. So you've been alone among gasden remember. We Guy Them I'm going to save. Barsha was not been we with us either not really not not really not at all we have defended. Barstool and fights like this all the time. I've proven my loyalty. Yeah time and time again so shut up and put my face on the thing they include you like that a year in review thing they included. You kind of feels like. Oh well he's going to bitch about it so we might as well just okay. We're we're all doing a great job here on the BARSTOOL network. I think we're supposed to call Barstool sports barstools..

"This is travel with Rick Steves. We're talking with George Farkas and Monica Push about hungry George. I mentioned earlier that the Hungarian language is sort of unique UNICO. It's different from the Slavic languages around it could could you talk just very clear and slow like a teacher count one to ten in Hungarian so we can get a little dose of your language Okay H.. Kathy had them need hot thought he knew what's key lands these. There's no no dose or Einstein tray of it. We're we're we're in no mislead challenged. Oh my goodness and Monica. Is there any fun. Little tongue twisters fund well. Would you like to really hear a melody or some really tongue twister in Hungarian like for example Charlie Bunch Richer Water Metro Vancouver Chaka check check is few troubled Shag. Oh my goodness I want to hear tongue-twister say that again slowly slowly and Hungarian and then tell us what you said so Charlie Bungee Chug is Chato Gash trouble charitable Gash csonka Chad fan to torture Rag Cherokees Few troppled achieve egg and it says <hes> that <hes> in the Lilla forests the Lilla birds are singing and Lilla Lake is can be seen so practically it is just an interestingly porter attacked listener little birds actually since <hes> Hungary had just received the title that Hungary is considered to be one of the most difficult language in a word and you may wonder why you know I mean there are grammatical rules. <hes> there are exceptions read the Rose and then you learn the language so what could be so difficult well the problem is that <hes> we have more exceptions from the rules then Roussy itself so that really frustrates me when I'm trying to learn a foreign language is is this way except when it's not this way you are not the only one who is frustrated. I'm trying to find find the solution. <hes> how come that the Hungarian society is still even in two thousand eighteen is completely Hama gene probably because everybody else <hes> who had not learned the language of in the language environment. It's almost impossible to learn so they find other areas so that it has a actual impact on the budget Nadya on the demographic makeup of because your language is harder to learn than German absolutely harder to learn than any any other languages actually in the European environment. What can we learn from the Hungarian language about the Hungarian people? Does it give us any insight into the culture language sets the mind and so if we have a language which has so many unexpected twists then please don't be surprised if you feel things which are unexpected in our culture in our history in our everyday life as well if you come to our Roman Catholic coronation church and the interior area of the church is decorated Pagans Tribal Hungarian motifs and so on in other words Monica. You're saying <hes> when you walk into a Roman Catholic church it has a deeper heritage than Christianity. There is a religious undertones that survived to this day that are actually the Pagan Magyar routes. Yes and the makers just came a thousand years ago right. The Magyars are the Hungarians seven Hungarian tribes arrived in eight hundred ninety six in the ninth centuries came about twelve hundred years ago from way over by Mongolia or something like actually a whole bunch of commerce rivers area therefore we have this language sitting in the middle of all these <hes> more Western languages and it's <hes> it's part of the Finnish Hugo Rick language grew house need three <hes> there are in Finland Estonia and Hungary. It reminds me of the independent spirit. It's just hard to defeat the Hungarian spirit for the Soviet Union. The Hungarians were just the biggest problem and you actually we had to be able to have your own Goulash version of communism and so on what is it about the Hungarian independent spirit. I think the Hungarians would really want to express themselves and they don't want to be compressed one of the examples if you're bringing <hes> something unique up is how we do our bads <hes> your bed yeah so working your bid and how our bedsheets are prepared and I I'd like to share a personal experience very first time we came over to the United States of America and we went into. I don't know if it was a hotel. Someone's house we were introduced to our bedrooms and we went in and then it took us time to actually decide where we go like we lifted one layer another layer and another layer. We couldn't decide between where we go because we have where you put your body fantasies. Where do we fit in his bat setting? They're all tucked into tight exactly and then you had these sheets and then all we have is basically a cover sheet which sits on the mattress and then we have a single engle do which is top to bottom sites basically a standalone unit and it's not tax in so we can easy lift it up and then go under and then our feats are are free. We can't have our feeds compress down at the end and still still today when we go to a hotel and get up in the middle of the night. I have hard time to pull the sheet out from the bottom to freer exactly to have a Georgia practically even today even I'm putting off the don't disturb sign because <hes> the housekeeping ladies are talking beautifully my bad and every single day I'm struggling it out because I need freedom during the night so I can't be oppressed underneath the in bed sheets story sorry he does this.

"Is travel with Rick Steves for talking with Julie Barlow and John Ben One NATO about the story of French and about their book the Balloon Jour Affect. Let's go back to the history. I mean French. Is You wrote. It was the most Germanic of the Latin languages what is Germanic about French about ten percent of the vocabulary and French is of Frankish origin and frankish would be a Germanic tribe. Yes yes exactly terms like gas the terms for shame don't all these terms are of Germanic origin not matter Natale and also the the we French constituted itself from romance between Latin and French. There was an intermediate language called romance that existed and that language at a strong influence of Germanic in the way that people used the physician of words in the sentence and all without so if you delve deep into French you'd find more Germanic connections than you would in Italian or Spanish absolutely in your book you have three thresholds of the development of the language <hes> the fall of Rome the conquest of England by the normans and the rise of Paris Chris says his center of power very briefly. Can you walk us through. Why was that a big deal for the French language the fall of Rome the conquest of England the rise of Paris the fall of Rome? I think was a big deal for all romance languages in Western Europe. It was very slow collapse in fact what it did was <hes> explode Latin into a number of years some of which are still practiced nowadays. There's still about twenty four regional official languages in France like oxygen providers variation of accident. Oh okay so when Rome was together. When Rome was the center of civilization it was all centralized and Latin was strictly the official language language but when that falls all of these pent-up local dialects can have a little more freedom to rise to the top exactly so French exploded that way how about the invasion of England by the Normans from western France in ten six what at the french-language well what did did this is the most visible example of how not quite French? It's more proper to speak of romance exported itself outside of its natural original domain which was Normandy Normandy Champagne early end and north of Kelsey French exported itself a longtime ago as a global language. It implanted itself in English. The ruling classes of English for centuries will be speaking French so you'll see that in vocabulary in English now because that was a turning point in Britain to have a strong central government would happen because of the the strength of the Normans who came in with their culture and language in the eleventh century and then later on we see Perez rising as the center of power and that really sort of centralized as France around Paris. Yes what's happened in the middle of that process is that French didn't ex- with was called Soi which is the language of the frank literally means that Frankish <hes> if you want to translate it in English and in fact it didn't exist it was kind of skipped a common language between areas that spoke Norman or Leonie's Champenoise into card and the sort of created sort would've middle language where they avoided the stuff that the others could not understand this became the sort of Middle Language Lingua Franca Lingua Franca actually experimented the process because I went to Jersey Island <hes> or these still speak Norman <hes> and I spent four days with people who spoke Norman and I this is exactly what we did. I spoke with my Canadian version of French and he spoke with their Norman Romance Language and we sort of avoid very rapidly everything that the others could not understand you wrote in your book how after the revolution in the seventeen ninety s of twenty eight million French people less than half of them spoke French well there was like thirty nylex but then the impetus of the revolutionary government centralizing things that was just the time when French became game established as the powerful image of this powerful country. Yes and it's it's interesting. I mean to go back to your earlier question about what language says about the French themselves. It's it's fundamental to understand that you know France up until World War One even to a certain extent up until World War Two is a very linguistically mystically diverse country with a missionary education system trying to you know get rid of all the local dozens and dozens of them and create this central so language becomes for the French really part of their national identity and the whole doctrine trend of assimilation that the French have very strongly which is very big contrast to the United States and to Canada's well this doctrine of assimilation also about language about this history of you know from the Revolutionary Government on in fact before that centuries before that there are attempts to you know impose French and the French people really believe their languages alive and creating a society.

"Clerides? If you listen to the wind in Ireland, you just might hear melody that's been played for generations up next a master of the Ellen pipes explains the role of wind instruments in traditional Irish music. It's travel with Rick steves. The arts are an important part of the Irish spirit. Great music is easy to find the pubs and concert halls of the emerald Lyle American-born Carreno hair is one of the performance. You might happen to see on stage playing the Irish bagpipe flute or tin. Whistle. Kirin earned an honours degree in modern Irish history from the prestigious Trinity College in Dublin, and he's become a fixture. The traditional music of Ireland on both sides of the bag. Karen? How'd you first get interested in the music of Ireland? We grew up in an Irish American house here, and my brother, Sean, and I started playing tin whistles when we were very young. My dad always had LP's virus music around the house growing up. So it just became natural to play around the house and that interest in music took me to the other instruments that I play and ultimately led me to move to Ireland for several years, actually. So you studied at Trinity College. I did an impressive college. I would think it's great. It was I say to people it was a bit like being in Hogwarts. Yeah. Fascinating place to be very rich life and within a ten minute walk all sorts of pubs with live folk music. Every night must have really stoked you're interested in traditional music. I actually paid a lot of my way through college by playing in those very pubs. You know, he's ever did. Now when we think about traditional Irish folk music this is traditional, but it's also modern how is it in Ireland that traditional music is is so in the forefront. Well, the short answer is that it never died. It's not an act. Of recreation or reconstruction to play Irish music or sing Irish songs. It's a tradition that has continued continued in Ireland, and it's continued wherever people from Ireland have moved now, the instrumentation for me is interesting. Of course, you've got a singer fiddle guitar, the drums accordion, and you're into the wind instruments, the bagpipes the wooden flute and tin whistle. That's right. Tell us about the board you're on which is relating to the bagpipes. Well, the incident that I play is called the ill and pipes and Ilham is a funny word, it's an Irish word for elbow and spelt U, I L L E A N N, and it is the most complex form of bagpipe in the world developed pretty much in the eighteenth century, but it's still played today. And there's an organization that was founded in nineteen sixty eight. There was fear the instrument would die out. So some people got together to preserve it and spread it and protect the tradition in your on the board. I am. Indeed. Yeah. And just twenty teen was the fiftieth anniversary of the establishment of this organization. And how's it doing? It was. Like an endangered species coming back. There were just a few old men that played or made the instrument at one point. And now their children in countries all over the world and interest in the instrument. There are more pipers playing today than there have been at any point in history to me bagpipe is sort of a bag full of air that you fill up by blowing into it. And then you squeeze it and that blows on the reeds instead of your own breath blowing on the reeds directly, and then you play a little stick like a flute, and it's powered like pipes through a pipe organ or something like that. That's a very simplistic look at it. How is an ill and pipe different from the typical begged pipe. We would see in Scotland for inst-. Well, the Scottish pipes are of a family called mouth blown pipes where you inflate that reservoir of air with your mouth the Irish pipes are in a different family of instruments called the bellows blown pipes. So we sit down to play and we fill the bag with a bellows that strapped around our waist. Oh, so you don't have that straw in your mouth to fill it up known Irish like Scottish bagpipe. Right. And that that bags are as a reservoir for air for the seven different redid pipes that make up the instrument. It's. A double read like an oboe with a chance upon which the melody is played is double Reed. There's three more pipes called regulators with keys for chords that have double reeds. And then three drones that sound continuous note, and those have single rates as a musician, and as an Irish piper, how are you thankful for the technology in an Irish bagpipe that lets you do more things than in a Scottish bagpipe. Well, because you're using air from the room rather than air that's been pumped with your lungs. The instrument can be made very very, quiet. So it's basically not much louder than a fiddle. So that makes an indoor instrument that can be played without the strident. Sounds that we often associate with the Scottish pipes straighten. That's a nice way to put it starting to get his Scottish bagpipe. You'd better on the battlefield. Anyone a scare your enemies of the Scottish pipes. Oscar Wilde once remarked thank God there is no smell. That's very good because I can imagine. If you're on the battlefield new here that you're going to run in terror, and if you had to smell it too. I think probably three your weapons up in the at the same time. So when you're in Ireland and you're playing the ill. And pipes. First of all the chanter. Tell us about that. What's it's range? The chanter has a two octave range, which is also pretty unique. Among bagpipes, the Scottish pipes have a range of only nine notes. So the types of relatively chromatic. I mean, reluctantly chromatic over two octaves. And then when you wanna play with music calisi, you've got grace notes, you've got tocado tremolo vibrato. Can you do those things? And I said, well, it's all done those techniques that you're talking about are done either with the fingers or by in changing the pressure on the bag or by lifting the chanter up and down from the knee upon which its place the whole package, basically comes together to an instrument that is claimed to have a sound closer to that of the human voice than almost any other unleashed. That's one of bits of credit. We like to give ourselves. Oh

"In Irish comedian one you might be starting to hear about tells us how much fun she's been having starting over in New York. That's coming up in just a bit on today's travel with Rick steves. Let's start the hour with a look at what it's like to reinvent yourself in a new country with the stories of two Americans who've made a life for themselves in Italy. Have you ever liked what you saw in Italy so much that you dreamed of actually moving there? I have to admit I've been tempted myself we're joined now on travel with Rick steves by two people who gave into that temptation and now they're living. They're -talian dreams and pip rata left her job in two thousand fourteen and moved to CNN and long so for him to Mataya and settled down within near Sorrento above the scenic amalfi coast Anna in and join us now to tell us their story. Thanks for joining us. So Anna, how did you end up in Sienna? I studied Italian in college fell in love with it decided to move to Italy after college moved to terrain, then ended up doing graduate work in Manchester became professor, and then realized that I needed to get to Sienna because I did my thesis on Saint Catherine of Sienna and every summer I went and every summer got harder to come back to the states. So I just decided to move there and that was a few years ago, and you must like it because you're still there. I do I love it Feren, by the way, big industrial city in the north no nonsense fantastic city, though, the best food really entering people. Think about that. But you ended up in sort of the fairytale medieval town, no an end lung. What's your story? I changed my major twice in university. And so decided to take a six months break to go to Italy to try to learn the language because I'd been there on vacation before. And then after six months decided to stay in ended up marrying an Italian and been thirty eight years living in Sorrento thirty eight years in beautiful lemon cellos. Ice cream and lemon cellos with those nothing better. I can't think of a more dull cheetah rental. So now you've been there. Thirty eight years in a small town, a small community and his community above Sorrento. You always the foreigner. You don't look at talion. I'm the foreigner. I definitely have strange ways the way I do things it's foreign, but I've been absorbed into the community. They think of me as a local because I've withstood thirty eight and you respect to the respect them. And there's a lot of my friends that were foreigners that have left sense. And they get no respect, I respect. So are you accepted in the community? Are you taking seriously at community meetings or parent teacher meetings, or whatever you might be into you sit there at the table, and and you're part of the community, and they'll ask me about my opinion about local ideas and things and I'm raising family in the community as well. So it touches my life. Yeah. Now, Anna, I I always think of Americans who settled down in Europe is ex pats. Yes. But you're also just flat out immigrants. Magritte's exactly it which my friends in CNN always remind me of oh here comes the immigrants. What's the difference between an ex Pat and immigrant, well, if we're going to be blunt, the color of your skin, isn't that something? Yeah. I know in Italy relationships seem to be really important to get things done personally. And in your in your work life talk about the importance of relationships in Italy, the hugely important. And I think that had I not found myself in a contralto in Sienna. I don't think I would have stayed because it's so important to be a part of a community..

"Steam trains and cog rail trains and so on. There's an appetite for keeping the elegance of the old world kinda still acceptable to travelers to this day. Talk a little bit about nostalgia. Alpine wonders. That's for me is one of the wonders of living in Switzerland and traveling around that. A lot of these early train lines were built in the fifty years after Thomas Cook arrived a still there, and some of them very often have steam trains on them servants since you can travel up the oldest mountain railway in Europe. It was the second in the world. Goes up mount rigi and every so often they will have steam trains on special days. But even if you're going to normal day, you get an old carriage and is a beautiful train ride. And you have to remember that when it opened in eighteen seventy one. The only alternative was to walk up, which takes about five hours more to be carried up. Like green Victoria was in a sedan chair. Imagine that eighteen seventy one. They would do the just for tourism, really. I mean in the generation after that they dug tunnels through the Eiger to take the train all the way up to the ume fry yoke, which is the top of Europe it is and it was over tourism. There's no reason for these tunnels and train lines to be built because no one lives in these places they were built as tourist attractions to keep the tourists coming and they were financed by tourism because they had this captive market. And so when you go up to young fry your today and it's up maybe ten thousand feet, the tunnel that was built. An opened in nineteen twelve was built as a tourist attraction, full British tourists. You needed something to do in the way to spend their money. But you can still do it today in a modern train. But the engineering is still exactly the same as it was over one hundred years ago and that for me is amazing that it is survive an is still as much loved now as it was. Then when you go to the top of the radio today, it's mind blowing investment in technology, and it's one hundred years old and it was done for this very beginning of modern tourism. And when you walk the main street and interlocken you see these wonderful grand hotels. What's the big classic old grand tour hotel an inter knocking the Victorio. Yeah, you step in there and it takes you back one hundred years easy. It's like going onto the set of downton abbey really is. That's great. It's like one tour, but two trips, one hundred and fifty years in a world of change apart. What would you envy after doing this about what miss Jemima would have experienced that you can't do today? And what might she envy about your trip that she couldn't have done back in the nineteenth century? For me, one of the biggest disappointments was that the glassy has pretty much disappeared. She went to Grendel vowed. Where in those days to glasses came right down into village, she only had to walk across the field to see the ice. I had to hike a couple of hours up just to see the end of the classier, which was another couple of hours away. So those mighty rivers of ice or frozen hurricanes Byron called them have disappeared almost completely, which is such a shame for her. She probably would envy the speed with which I got round. It definitely was a slow tour for her and it was uncomfortable. They had no bathrooms in the hotels. They didn't wash bathe for three weeks. They will the same clothes every day. I luckily could bay every day and change my clothes, so she'd probably envy the hygiene. I think we have an advantage we can enjoy essentially the same alpine wonder, and we have amazing efficiency convenience and comfort. Exactly. I think the landscape is just as beautiful as she saw it, but we have the modern comforts that came about as a result of that. I tore they can views author of slow train to Switzerland.

Thank you, Fred, you open your book with this amazing story of the birth of a giraffe. Describe that experience to us? Well, the birth of the giraffe came after a unique event. We had been traveling and early in the morning. The forest went very quiet and we we're not sure exactly what had happened. And so. We started tracking to where we heard a bunch of lines and they were chasing down giraffe, a male giraffe. And if you can imagine three lionesses taking down a male giraffe, it was something to see as they take this giraffe down the lionesses separated and two large males came from the back. One was black tuft behind it's years, and the other one was a little bit larger, had a golden mane with a red tint who these two males came on the scene. And what had happened then was they stood up and fought over the first bite of meet the prime choice of the giraffe. The larger the two males stayed where he was in the smaller male move to the rear what happened. Next was very unique as all of this commotion caused he series of events and we had a circle of life, so to speak as the lionesses stood guard around because they were going to eat next. The.
