"Her. I would think you would definitely get fewer chasing love up against the sun right. We saying he wants to get home before daybreak but again like for what is he likes sneaking into bed and his wife doesn't realize he was gone like i don't understand what's a flawed system is easy saying that. He works a night job is he saying i mean. He's stevie wonder so he could be like listen. I'm playing gigs until five in the morning. it's true but i'll be back with sunup. Don't worry honey. He has a nontraditional job. I guess an excuse. I do have to say i actually really liked that line chasing love up against the sun. I don't know why i just like it. I like the intention behind it. But i like it the oh i love. Oh it's great. I mean. I'm not for cheating is what i'm saying. Okay all right. Like rachel is not for hard stance hearts leads. We'll we'll do a quick vote for the rest of the of the see how we feel it takes. It takes a songwriter as skilled as stevie wonder to make cheating poetic right. Yes you know. Like chasing up against the sun is such a lovely line about cheating Absolutely it's it's very poet. It's a very poetic way of saying. Look we we gotta check out by we. I'm not paying for late. Check out lover. There's if you know the lyrics to this job continental breakfast going good news. It's it's winter so we've got ours point. This is a song. Where if you are if you don't listen closely to the lyrics and you just hear something here and there like passion and lover all words which made me want to throw up in my mouth but anyway And it's so peppy you would think what a fun. Love song to do deep. It's so peppy and then you listen to it and you're like this is about awful. People is a song about terrible people doing terrible things. I'm still gonna listen to it. And it's still cotton my stuck in my head but i feel guilty about how much i whistle it. Well i mean. I don't think you know i think it's okay to have a song about terrible people doing terrible things. I don't think steve he's like i'm cheating on my wife and by the way it's awesome. No no no hold on hold on and actually here's the thing. There is not a moment of regret or guilt in this song. In the you disagree. Okay he saw. he doesn't even start with. He starts with call up. Bring hang up the phone. he's right into. This is how. I'm going to cheat on my wife. He is not saying. I'm really struggling. Torn with the fact that i love to people. There's nothing like that in here. It is a handbook on how to somebody in the eighties. It is not a handbook on how to deal with the emotional distress of being in love with two people at the same time. He is a okay with it. If you say that the knowing it's so wrong but feeling so right is the line that makes it. Seem like he understands. And there's a bit of regret you are dead wrong sir. You are dead wrong. You know what that is that is a. Cya is covering your ass. That is what he is doing. He saying. I know it's wrong but doesn't it feel so right. I guess buddy but it's let's put the emphasis on the wrong. He doesn't man. I went on a rant. I'm sorry guys. That's okay what i was going to say it was. I mean the the one thing that makes me feel like not totally hate this guy. Is i agree. I don't think he has much regrets or gives much thought to the feelings of his wife. But what does that tell. Is this the end. He's just like all right. Well let's doing it. She's gonna do like he's not he's not like he's like he's upsetting. Like how could you do this to be like. Well what are you gonna do. Yeah we'll get to the end there but yes but but this is this this chorus first of all great chorus there. That last line is as if he has caught himself realizing how exciting it is to be cheating on his wife. It is a sense of performance guilt that he is. Because that is a cle- shea line and i don't mean that like as stevie wonder is cliche. I am saying that as a writer. He knows it's a cliche line right. There's no emotion in there that changes. There's no change in. there's no change in the song. there's no change in the way he is singing. Its goal face carry. This character is a cliche lay. I don't i don't mean like i mean like like if you saw a person in real life and you just be like you. You're like a cliche. You are like your. I know you do the exact thing that people do like. Yeah right he's he's you know and he's doing in a way he's doing it because it is wrong like it. It's not like you've got swept up in something. It's like the excitement of of almost getting caught. That's what probably system sucks. He wants to like almost get caught doing this. So i he's he's turning one light on and off and then then he's turning to like by the end every light and she not notice And she's like. I'm really concerned about stevie. I think he has obsessive compulsive disorder. He's looking on dark. I'm concerned about his eyesight. Yeah personal but that's also kind of a a testament to how good writer stevie wonder is like he can take these cliches make them and make them character traits without making it sound cliche in the song. Right and yeah. This'll be clear. I think rachel would agree. We're saying that he's using the cliche to write purpose. It's not putting in cliche. Because he's a bad writer this again. This person is like you know ten thousand other dudes who have cheated on their wives like he's like oh it's so exciting because it's wrong and it's like yeah. Everyone thinks you're not nothing special. Okay your basic is what. I'm trying to our part-time lever base. jason la bob against the sun. We are strangers. Day lovers by night Sound like they're wolves but knowing it's so wrong but feeling so right and he says if i'm with friends and we should wait before we get to that please. Do you wanna say in this course and it happens a couple of times throughout the song stevie wonder again as a brilliant songwriter Kind of plays with the emphasis that he puts on certain words and like emphasizes the wrong syllable And it fits it. Fits into the music. But there's something so cool about it that you actually have to go back and think like oh that's not how you say lubbers. He puts the emphasis on the second syllable. And it's like no. That's that's not but it fits so well into the song and there's such emotion in in the accident being on the wrong syllable that it works perfectly in general in this song the the phrasing everything the phrasing he uses the actio phrasing he uses. Not the words is just wonderfully bizarre not to keep going back to the first lines but the first call up ring once hang up the phone and then get to apart later where you're like. He's then there's parts where he's trying to just fill as many words in two one breath as possible but he's all over the place with it. Which i think works for the song that this guy.

"The ten, ten. That's a ten. I've been sitting here for an hour and waiting to play the whole time. That's appropriate. Appropriate. Wonderful, wonderful. Yeah, so hold on. Let me just, I gotta ask this question though, because what do you said this and I don't know, I don't know. Have we ever discussed this? But who is more talented as a musician than Stevie Wonder? Man, that's a very good question to explore because the best artists aren't necessarily the best musicians. Like, you know, you could point out rappers that are the best artists in their field, but if you hand Nas a flute, he can not play that very well. You know, if you hand, I don't know, Eric Clapton a piano. He's not gonna sound as good as Stevie Wonder on the piano. So that's actually a really good question. Who is a better musician than Stevie Wonder? You can throw anything at Stevie Wonder and he's going to play it. I saw a group of him playing a guitar. He's incredible, man. And it sounds hilarious. He's like a ten second clip, and he's like, that's awesome. Yeah, I don't know, man. I can't answer that. I have no idea. I don't think. And I'm going to keep thinking about it. I might have to obsess about this now. But who's better than Stevie? Just like on pure musicianship and skill. I'm pure talent and skill level. But so if someone who's like a cross instrumentalist, I can multi instrumentalists. I mean, I think that in short count, I would definitely take that into account. Right. Because I can think of like some really obviously like names come to mind that are just amazing at their instrument, but I think but set Stevie apart is just how he's able to play multiple instruments. But also I mean, yeah, like this was like his show the last three albums that we listened to. It was like, Stevie, you had personnel helping him, but he was the band. He was a buck stopped with him. Nobody was telling him what to do. You know, you can get into like so yeah, I guess you'd have to look for like a single music like this prince play,.

"Yeah, it's interesting role. I didn't get the visual of an actual door opening object until you brought it up. Just do you think that visual of like, okay, there's a key physical key. What is that key to life's door? Like, what is that? That's obviously a very tangible way to look at it. And I hadn't thought about it up until now. But even if you take it that tangibly, man, it really is clear. Each of these song explore how love is going to open the door for you. It's going to show you how to use love as an ingredient in that door opening process. And that can be a pretty simple message, which is interesting because sometimes I actually think Stevie does some very, very nerdy, very difficult technical things with the instrumentation on here. I want to point out one song, even though there's a bunch I could point out. Please do, bro, come on. At the end of summer soft. Let's just talk about that song for a few minutes. So lyrically, he grows, he goes through that song. And he's basically personifying seasons and thinking about seasons and different people. And he's going through all that, and that's beautiful, and that's poetic. And then something happens at the last two minutes that song that I had to listen to it three times to make sure my ears were actually registering what was happening. He changes key signatures four times. And each time each time his tone matches the increase. He's not just singing louder. Like he's actually singing a different key each time and it's like, I feel the pressure. Like I feel him just bursting out. And I thought that was such a flex to change keys once as a flex. Like, listen to the end of, I don't know, Versace on the floor or Beyoncé does it a bunch of times. Changing keys is a really fun thing to do in a song. But to do it four times and to have it sound cohesive, it's just such a flex man. He is truly truly like a gifted genius of a musician. And Libby's point, what makes Stevie Wonder so great for me is that he can do that genius nerd stuff on tracks, but he can also make like very palatable music that that range, you know, to be able to like, you know, talk to college professors, but also hang out with the homies and like go to a bodega and whole foods. Like he's just so flexible with his musical output man. I didn't think it was possible. But I didn't even know that that was something that he was trying to do, because it just seemed like music of my mind. Okay, he's just trying to make R&B fun album. Cool. Like I'm with it talking book, yeah. A funk aren't, but here it's just it's a whole different game, man. It's a whole different game. There's so much to say about this album. I think it's time though. I think it's time to transition into final thoughts. And we can take this in any way that y'all want to. But I'm not going to go first. So I would love it if one of y'all go first and give us your final thoughts. We can start out with final thoughts about Stevie. We can start with final thoughts about his discography that we explored or just final thoughts about the album..

"In terms of themes for this album, were you all happy with the range that he explored of themes? Do you feel like you wish he escaped the love theme more? Was it too much of the God stuff, like, enough about black people? Like, how did y'all feel about his exploration of themes here? How could Stevie Wonder have done better? Or did he just get it right? And there's nothing more to say about it. And he got it, right? I think that first off the title of the album is beautiful. And bam. Songs in the key of life. And, you know, walking into it, you're already, you know, we're already warm to Stevie. The first couple albums before this. So you kind of feel like did you just walk through? You know, he went from this stage and then he got a little bit more individual. I mean, he was totally individual really with music on the night, but he was exploding as like a solo artist and then it kind of got a little bit more explored. And then with talking book. And then yeah, this was just like it was conscious. It was, you know, a still Stevie with spit and love and love songs and but he's like exploring true human feelings and instincts, and fears and he was very very relatable in a deeper sense, you know, it wasn't like superficial. I didn't think, you know. And you think of the key and the key of key of life, you know, how many notes make up a key, you know, and it's just that you could just be like, once you start wondering about that and key of life, how many know it's make up a key sadness joy fear, you know? Love, you know, it's just you kind of going down this warm rabbit hole of self exploration. You kind of just guide you along. But he's not really holding your hand and pushing you he's not jamming you down there. He's just, you know, swallowing you up, but the music. And the music's just so palate. So like easy. And it wasn't anything really edgy. A couple item conclusion was a little bit on the edge of your jammy rocky side. I was like, didn't know if I was at a fish concert. You know what I mean?.

"Okay, skipped. I feel like this exercise might have skewed my sensation on this album. Only because we had to I've made myself listen to it enough. Maybe if it was just if I had just taken it back inside, I'm all set. I've listened to this enough. I have my opinion. But I didn't have me coming back, listen wanting more of the same. I actually wanted to just break out and go listen and envisions and check out all the stuff that he had done. I was actually kind of beyond this except for, honestly, man, I could go back and listen to as on repeat. I can listen to him a couple songs up front. I wish sir duke had wicked fun the first I didn't know if I really liked it, but then it really grew on me. So yeah, the criticism, yeah, is it too long? I think it's a longer piece, but it's how you approach it. It's nothing wrong with it for being long. It's loaded with the right stuff. It's very repetitious. It's groovy and it's really tight, it's designed to be like to get into your head. And it's very comfortable. It's. A great, I guess what I'm trying to say. It's a fascinating album. And fear that I might have spent too much time with it. Is it just so much to get through? So do you think do you think let's say suppose we would have. Listened for another week? Do you think that opinion on the album would have been different for you? If you had more time to digest it. And not necessarily because I gathered that you like to listen to it once all the way through. Is that what you like doing? I like to look like I like to do the my initial take. And that's the one where you're like, you know, you go from front to back and then you come across like pastime Paradise and you're like, oh, shit. Wow. I've heard this, right? Coolio. No way. This is a fucking Stevie Wonder song? That is so cool. And you know what I mean? Like those initial surprises are just like, you know, it's just awesome. Like, I've definitely heard this song before. I didn't know this was Stevie and then it's like holy shit, how good is he? Yeah, the first time through was always that is really to just use your first time. Yeah. I guess I'm more so wondering how this album been less songs. Would it have been an easier listen for you as what I'm wondering? No, no. No. I think I just think I had to work for it. And I guess that's just because I had to I wouldn't have made it easier. It was a delightful. It's an awesome.

"Because there's so many. There's so many. I know I love the breakdown on I wish I know when it gets into the breakdown and he does some like, oh oh, like vocal layers, I thought that was fucking immaculate. Damn, you know, how do you even answer this question, bro? It's just so phenomenal all the way through man. I do love the vocal layers of this at the intro track. Love is a needle love. So good. That's one of the most that's one of the catchiest phrases in music that I feel like I've ever heard in my life. Yeah, the apex of the album for me. Beyond everything else, it's an easy question for me. It was the breakdown and as it comes back in with the groth gruffness. I was like fucking. Wow, I just blown away because it just like weird. Weird connection, but like there's a jam sequence a little, it's not like a full on bam, but this just the phrase and the role the role it's coming and then all of a sudden that the heaviness comes back in for a quick verse monologue. It's just like a change of character. And it just like, it's just so explosive and it's punctuated by a sweet voice and it's like I forgot the lyric. And I will always love you or I love you. So it just Stevie just comes back in with the love with the high voice and just really whipped cream cherry right at the end of that. But that song just the chord structure is beautiful. Just I'm sorry, the change is otherworldly. So the songs already up in like the clouds and then yeah, that was just such a flavor twist. Definitely for me, I mean, that then there's other little bits and pieces throughout the album that I thought were pretty nifty, but nothing else is a candle to that change that caught me by surprise. And I was like, this might be my favorite Stevie Wonder song. Yeah. To me, there are plenty of songs in this album that I would rate 9s and tens. And I can't find a number to rate as to me as from the second best song starts to the second end. You know, I'm transported. Out of body experience, listening to that song. And I'll tell you exactly why. Some of my favorite moments in music are when there's this layering happening where the instrumentation, the lyrics and the tone are all working together to communicate the same message. Like the lyrics, okay, I kind of understand what the vision is going. The instrumentation. Oh, it's kind of moving with the same effect and then the tone all collide. I have to read this because to me it is so beautiful and so much. There's so much poetry here. And during this part, he's coming back from the hook, and he's having the background vocals, do some really beautiful. And the line is as today I know I'm living but tomorrow. Could make me the past that I mustn't fear. For all no deep in my mind, the love of me I've left behind, 'cause I'll be loving you always. There are so many dense, beautiful phrases in that song. But in that particular moment, it's just a crescendo. It's just a blast, man. It's incredible that he's able to layer things like that. And I wish I could say it only happens there..

"I mean, first and foremost, the first thing that jumps off jumps out at me is that it's much, there are much more instruments on this album. There weren't really many strings. And at least in talking book a little bit. Definitely not any in music of my mind. But I think if there were strings on talking book it was very minimally. And just so a wider variety of instruments like it was a lot more sacs, brass instruments, and I think he was, you know, with all the elements, the more elements, because this album is very grandiose. It's almost like, you know, it's almost like a cinematic movie and it's like every song that's his own scene in a movie. And I think that he was able to kind of flex a little bit more, especially with some of these so like musically, intellectual, right? To use more instruments, different instruments. And not necessarily more in the saturated way, but like having the ability to choose out or more, you know, if you have a hundred elements to choose from as opposed to on talking book, there was probably a total excuse me, music of my mind. It was probably a total of ten instruments on that at most. This had to have had at least 50 to 60 instruments. You know, so a lot more layers. I think he was able to express himself. At this point, you know, his final album, I think he knew at this point he was going to take a break from music a little bit, and he was plotting to potentially quit music after this album. So he took like a hiatus after release releasing songs in the key of life. So I think that with that in mind, it's almost like Jay-Z creating the black album, you know, that album is very grandiose and big sounding and very elegant. So imagine you potentially thinking, being Stevie Wonder after having this elusive last four years and music, this could.

"Sales, Grammy, what do you want to do? What do you want to do? I'll take the Grammy, but I'll also take the money too, but I'm sure Stevie had a lot of it. So some pretty remarkable feats going into just the whole creation of this album was ridiculous. Over a hundred artists contribute on here. Stevie's ex-wife makes another appearance her be Hancock, and then a bunch of other people that I'm not super familiar with, but just an incredible lobby. There's a lot of them. There is a lot of them. And this album is considered to be the crescendo culmination, the conclusion of Stevie Wonder's boring. Classic period of Stevie Wonder first album was listening to music on my mind. Then we listened to talking book and now we're listening to the 1976 songs in the key of life. There's so many different places that we can go with this album. And beauty is really in the simplicity. So I want to just start off how did this album make you feel? Did you ask that question though? Because one of the questions that I wrote down is what color is do you guys see? Which I feel can be translated to how it makes you feel. And as far as how it makes me feel, it makes me feel joyous for the most part. I want to make me find the positive and even the negative bullshit that we go through on a day to today basis. You know, this album is a perfect example of that, you know, being someone like Stevie Wonder and, you know, his, you know, obstacles. And still finding the absolute beauty. There's so many beautiful songs on this album, yo. In instrumentation alone, but then the lyrics and the content. There's so many layers of goodness. You know? And yeah, it makes me it makes me feel really fucking good, man. It really does, yeah. The days are better listening to this album and Stevie Wonder in general. A 100%, it was a very warm album. You know, my biggest going all the way back to music of my mind was you know, this sounds a saturated. It seems like it's way too much talking book was much more refined. And then this one just takes talking book and just brings it up like a whole different bar. It just raises the bar. Very, it's explosive, it's exploratory. It's very warm. It made me feel at home. I felt good. I felt yeah, I felt pretty relaxed. Stress free..

And and so he went and saw and then he didn't die and my brother Scott's like no, I did the thing. I'm good. How bout you do? Need that a bitch. I did it. We're good. I did it. Fine. I've seen all of you. We don't need to talk. It'll be, it'll be all right. Well, be connected on Facebook, enough juice and any my brother's got very cryptic about his own health all the time anyway, but so it's nice. That Stevie Wonder has as many children, and it looks like they're good. Looking people thought, maybe, you could marry a child. I didn't even think about that now. Would it be weird one be more age-appropriate? I mean, probably, however, I feel like if, if ultimately e, I was like, I held I had these like, weird aggressively sexual feelings for your father. I don't know. I mean, they may not be interested in. You first word, may all fall apart their office, right? This is mine. You were attracted to my dad and wanted to get with me. That would be weird, right? Would you are correct. Yeah, that would be super weird. But I appreciate the the focus. Now..

"Cuz that guy talk about telling a story and it is an appositive one. It's a sad story. Nobody lives. Slice-of-life taxi Cat's in the Cradle song. Famous. Harry, Chapin songs about people that have been terrible Life Choices. They're always Sumsung. It's just a bad idea. What so we took in an hour so far, there's are their stories you want to tell are there things that you have not told me about anything. You wonder marrying him concerts from I dead. You know, I just there's not necessarily a story, I can think of but I will say that when I have I have dated some relatively uncreated. Although that's probably be unfair. Shout out to All My Exes. May they be blessed and move on but it was German. Thank you next. Thank you next hardcore, but they have you know, when they want to be like home with a, you know, creative gift for me, they'll do they'll find out what my favorite movie is or my favorite whatever and they'll do that. Not one of them. None of all of the dude's I have dated has ever done anything in relation to Stevie Wonder and you can't keep that dude's name out of my mouth. Now granted. I'm not like every day like Stevie Wonder, see if you want. I'm not an insane person. Well, I'm a little insane, but I'm not like that. So how long he's been in the conversation. Yes, and it's it's probably playing in the background a fair amount of time. For sure is most of the time. So hence the wage. They are not subtle Jackie. They are not subtle and no one has ever done anything. And I'm not, you know, I'm not trying to be a brat. Like I'm grateful for every gift I get but like, yes, you can't get me a tee shirt that says I love Stevie. What took you there? Nothing nothing. So I would say like not a story but an energetic requests or anyone. The dates me in the future. Do something clever with my guy before he, you know, shuffles off the Earth. And this Mortal coil is Mortal for your brand. New brought you to the to that show. Yeah, that was incredibly long. Yes. Yes, like someone who gets you and was like, this might blow her mind and see if it does and it and it did it did. Yeah. And it was the same thing about that was that was so lovely is because of where we were seated. There weren't a ton of people around us cuz we were just kind of up so we got to dance the whole time at that concert. And that's, you know, that's my favorite shit off. And so dancing to my future husband whilst he serenaded just me and no one else and told me I love Leah was which oh, you know what? I will tell you this cuz most people don't know this. Another reason. I absolutely love him is because Isn't She Lovely wasn't about, you know, his wife or a girlfriend or whatever..

"Oh, no. I was just going to ask how, how that affected how you became a fan. Like, what's the name? Yeah. Yeah. So it's a great question. I. So I there were a couple of songs where I I think the reason I fell in love with him was because I was so convinced that he was singing to me. Like I was like, oh you wrote the song for me. Like talk about egoic experience with music, but I was like, thank you Stevie like yes, I am. Lovely. Thank you for saying that, you know, like so long after listening to like once in my life is my favorite song of all time of his and then okay, and she lovely Falls right under there and and so those two songs off, because they were so joyful and happy, they I for sure, connected that way. But my dad, my dad's best friend was a black and black, man, and I grew up song A shitload of time and his house and we played with his son all the time and like his son was my first like a live person that I have in contact with crush. And so I attached. He would play jazz music off, wasn't a famous musician for years, older than you rank of your first human person that you like my first non alien, but I was really an issue. And so in his house he wage as a lot but he would also play Stevie Wonder and like all kinds of different Motown artists. Yeah. Yeah. And so when he knew there were songs that I would like like we would be allowed to smoke those particular, Stevie Wonder songs. And so he would work in, you know, other songs that I might be into, he was totally right. And I ended up loving but it was it started from listening to it, you know, on the police channel to having an emotional attachment to it, which I think is often in most of dark denim, you know, if we have some sort of story of change in our life, it you know, the connection that you've That you grew up with, and there's a reason why some people like Star Trek a great deal or a really into horses, you know, there's there's that emotional connection to suck.

"I you know, we're listening to New Kids on the Block like no this is not for us. So I fell in love with him then through the music. And so I would just tell my mom and dad over and over. I'm going to marry him. Like I'm gonna marry so young and I would get hot if you told me or if they told me if anyone told me if they giggled and just, you know, brushed it off as like a childhood, whatever straight face over here, Georgia, Forest Lake. No dead serious. Appreciate you. Okay. Thank you for supporting that vision and I'm respecting, thank you, appreciate you. And appreciate the fans for doing the same. And yeah, I would get real hot. And so, I would be told, okay. Yeah, whatever. So long story. I was, I had a cough and I decided I needed way more Robitussin than I did need. I found it in the closet. I drank at all. And of course, I had to go to Los Angeles. I was very drunk. I was very young and I kept repeating. This is how they knew. I was drunk. I just kept telling everyone that I needed to see Steve. See, Stevie Wonder. I was going to marry him. Like, where was he thought were my drunken thoughts. You, I think I was six. I was very, very young. So little yeah. A little to be drinking and little to be super in love with someone like or Times by age. So yes, I thought it was cute and funny and I got mad. I was like again folks again. This is a real and making a statement. I'm not this isn't a wish. This is a declaration. So, yep. Yeah. Floyd. Yeah, so that was like I think that my obsession only became earlier hammered in because I'm sure as you know, listeners of the door for us and some people have on have said, you know, when people resist this thing that like makes your heart beat you get defensive of it because you're like you just don't get it. So I'm not wrong, you're wrong. And so long, my obsession just we went further down the rabbit hole and then he actually hasn't released a studio album of new songs since 2005. He's had like a couple Christmas albums since then, but she hasn't nothing new has been generated and he's still isn't that nuts, but he's still part of the Zeitgeist and he's still sort of, you know, right. He was they he co-wrote a song with Ariana Grande for same thing. He was on Travis Scott's album. I can't think of the name of it. Still working. Just hasn't. Is he a singer songwriter? Yes. Was he doing other people's work off? So it's a mix now beginning, he was, because he was so young.

The music the direction of your above top to bottom. He actually tried taking control of this the musical direction of his albums ten years prior released when he was thirty one so for ten years he was like you know nailing and grabbing trying to gain creative control project which you will tap into that a little later the importance of having creative control what you create a mets stevie wonder played a majority of the instruments on this album which is fucking mind-blowing this sars just this one. The first album of the period which a lot of people for it to as stevie wonder's classic period which i'm sure speaks to stevie wonder having the creative controls in four years. He release five. I believe in tam's weird. You know what i mean in in. That's crazy to think about it. Because i'm sure it's like these aren't the only songs or albums that he created in that time period. Three five thousand four years from seventy to seventy six said he. He played every instrument on the out and I think you know the album really speaks to the music of his mind. And i think being a blind man and to how this kind of creative output is mind-boggling. You know it's on more. It's on mozart. Beethoven level i'm Exercises themes of love and in many fashions.

Somebody's waiting outside the delivery for so andrew came across a paper in the journal. Frontiers in psychology which. I was so charmed by that. You've read as we can talk about it. It's called acquisition of a joystick operated video task by pigs. How could i forget for the listener. I'll just explain. These experiments were carried out at penn state university. There were four pigs. A pair of yorkshire pigs named hamlet an omelette and a pair of panna pinto micro pigs named ebony and ivory. I guess after stevie wonder and paul mccartney or the song of that name or after piano keys and the paper describes what the pigs were and were not able to learn in these experiments manipulating video game joystick with their snouts. And what i really want to know is tell us how it changes your thinking as a psychologist if it all about non human animals their capabilities. The way we should think about them perhaps differently about ourselves differently. Well thank you for broadening. My academic horizons. I would not have read this paper on video games and makes were it not for our friendship so i i will just say that when i read this line i literally laughed out loud after twelve weeks of training. Hamlet and omelette were terminated from the experiment because they had grown too large no fit within the constraints of the test pen. Academic research is tough. You lose fifty percent of your research pool just like that so anyway now down to two test subjects by the way. So one of my intuitions is that one ought not an. I understand that this research is hard. But maybe not generalize to olive pig them based on this very small number of pigs because look at wilbur wright some pig yeah so maybe ebony or ivory were some one of them was much better than the other in the research so there's various across pigs even yes.

"Doing Zoom and working remotely because that's the world that we're currently living in today, and it's probably going to be the world that we're going to be living in for not just. A short period of time but because we're starting to understand that you know what we can get a lot of work done remotely in very a lot of industries we need to grasp, hold its concept being able to do as zoo meeting and do it right all right, and so we're we're GonNa talk about some of these little pieces here as we finish up here in this hour so. Let's talk about a couple of really we you talked about the green screen, but I think one of the things that two things that we need to talk about is audio and video. And bring up to really fabulous points and I am right on it and Let's. Let's talk about the video portion I, what should we know about video because we can make some mistakes there Why I think the the first mistake that we make is that is that when we get into the whole realm of video. We immediately go. Hey High def right I want high. DEF. and. All that sounds good because of course, we're watching I definitely and television and by the way watching something happened. Is Infinitely more. Is Easier and simpler than you actually making it happen. So you want to look at your resolution and see if you can actually tone down your resolution because. They're probably not gonNA WANNA see four K or whatever. And by the way very few people have the bandwidth to do four K. Right now. So video is important and and you WanNa make sure that you understand how your video works, how how it's going to be put together and you can. You could start out inexpensively and you can go very expensively You can actually get a really decent zoom call out of a iphone or android with with a face with a front facing camera. But what you WanNa do you WanNa get a stand and have this stand hold it instead of you because let's face it. If if you're holding your camera, you know if you're holding like this way you know and you've got this little jitter will cause your hand will get tired and you're doing this stuff You're not going to be not going to be very effective. So just make sure that you understand that and and you know. Test see what is like also, you can make videos on your on your PC, your Mac you know on your laptop makes videos and see what the camera it looks like. Big Mistake that people make is they got nostril cam going that's great. You know which one I'm talking about right. Looks like it looks like Sherwood forest up there but you know you got these guys who they don't even they're clueless by the way if you want to know how to make your laptop, go up up up, I will give you the cheap way to do it. You could go get some paper that would go into your printer and just keep stacking up keep stacking up. Reams of paper until have the right line of sight. So people aren't looking up there and going. I wonder. Don't want them to wonder, hey, how's how's that? For a really inexpensive way to do that and you're right you know you can take books or whatever to raise your laptop if you don't have a separate camera, I think probably you and I, I have a camera on a tripod that's a USB camera attached here so I'm looking right at it, but you don't have to have. That you don't have to spend that money to do that type of thing. So you most as you point out in the book, most of your laptops have a camera in there. Let's get rid of knows. Kim Let's. Let's get some books and let's get that. Let's get that raised there. So we can see you right. Let's talk about audio. Let's talk about audio because I think we we think that because Ron video that audio is not important, but it really is critical. Isn't it? Audio's very important. Now, I I happen to prefer just because of my personal style and what I do is I wear I, wear a gaming headset so you can go buy a gaming headset for seventy. Bucks. Plug into a USB and it does a good job. It it. You know it sounds good by the way it kills lots of surrounding noise and that makes me the MIC stand. You know. So matter how much moving my head and it's funny because I, what I'm. Looking at buying headsets I was talking to. Somebody. Who is really a good audio engineering and we're talking about my problem, which is I had a really nice microphones like Jay has in fact, I have several but the problem is I would come off center. So my volume would keep getting funky and changed and he said, well, tell me how much you move your head and I said, well, it's got like halfway between Ray Charles and Stevie. Wonder. and. Said Okay here's the solution. The solution is you have to be the Mike Stand. So I bought actually have multiple headsets but for for seventy bucks at a best buy, you can buy cheaper but you know you now have this and it's great isolation people are I watch a lot of people who take the little headset that comes with their phone and they have that they're holding the microphone up to them and let's face it a microphone. That's the size of a pinhole. That's that's what your voice is being replicated through. Right so you spend a few bucks you'll get a, it'll be a lot better. Some people don't like to wear these because it makes them look I. Don't know whatever. But you know you gotta think in terms of a good microphone and you can get pretty decent microphones for less than one hundred bucks.

What Is Castoreum, and Why Is It in My Food?

Christopher Kimball's Milk Street Radio

What Is Castoreum, and Why Is It in My Food?

"We're talking about one of my favorite topics. Which is the food industry in America? Going back to the beginning of synthetic flavors in the nineteenth century. So let's get into the weird history. Kastoria him I don't know if I pronounced that proper but I read that I always fell off my chair. So this comes from a beaver and beavers were hunted. I thought because the beaver hats but I guess for this what is Kastoria. Where does it come from? And how is he is? Okay so let me tell you about how I found out about this ingredient when I first started writing about and talking about the history of of artificial flavors. I'd sometimes get this weird question from somebody. In the audience somebody raised their hand. And say is fake vanilla actually beaver but and and the first time. I heard it. I was a little taken aback. I was like No but I looked into it a bit and the thing. That's being called beaver. But is an ingredient called CA- story him. That isn't actually derived from the beaver anal gland but from gland next to the anal gland so near but but not quite but and important distinction. We might be important to sanction and beavers. Use It to To mark their territory and for other beaver ish things But it has long been an important ingredient in perfumery as other animal. Musk's have been and there's a lot of overlap between perfumery and flavors so historically it's very expensive ingredient you know once I figured this out this part of the perfume part of the story. I started answering. The question of is faithful reliever but with no beaver but is way too expensive to be used in fake vanilla by then. Was it used for a while for that? Well I started looking a little bit deeper into the history of vanilla flavors especially before the pure food and drug act and I saw that sometimes. Musk would be listed as an ingredient. Not specifically beaver. Musk musk a small amount. And then I started talking to flavor US especially older flavors about this and one flavor is told me He had trained at one of the big flavor. Houses in the nineteen seventy s flavor by the crafts people really who who build the artificial flavors or the natural flavors The flavor additives in foods and beverages. He was a novice and the flavors who he was training under made him prepare. Kastoria extract as part of one of the routine tasks of learning how to do it and so he got kind of this tray of Beaver glandular sacs and he had to turn them into an extract. This is what they do. The New Guy Right now your first day he. Here's here's some beaver sacks we want you to extract the the compound his his the master flavors training him said I. Had you do that to see if you had the heart of a flavor rest? So when it was used in flavors which was rarely it was used in really small quantities just kind of to add a certain nuance maybe to the very best vanilla flavorings certain Genet Sekwa. Yeah so I think it was also used some terms in raspberry flavorings But what I found was that in the eighties. It's it almost stopped being used entirely. In fact I couldn't find anybody who had any memory of ever using it who worked in the industry for the reason that in the eighties. A bunch of the big food and beverage companies started striving to make their products. Kosher is not kosher many things but it not kosher okay. So let's fast forward to today's world where artificial is a real problem for a lot of food manufacturers? You mentioned That trick. Cereal tried to switch to natural colors and ditch the high fructose corn Syrup and that really didn't work out too well for them. They got really dull colors. So what is the industry doing now that they've created you know three or four thousand artificial flavors and colors and now a lot of consumers want products. That don't have them. It really depends on the on the case anybody. Who's gone to a supermarket within the past? Five years has almost certainly notice that all kinds of familiar brands now are proclaiming. Nothing heard official rate no artificial flavors even things where it just seems so ridiculous like natural cheetos right. So what are all natural cheetos? What does that mean well? I can't really answer that. In fact nobody can natural flavors are defined right? If you look on an ingredient list and you see an item that says natural. Flavors there's actually you can go to the code of federal regulations and you can read what that means. It means fruits leaves skins seeds from natural. Yes exactly and artificial. Is Everything else? But there's a lot of ingredients that kind of straddle the line or ways of processing that kind of straddle the line a major class action court case recently In the past ten or so years has been about orange juice. Tropicana orange juice. It's is it a one hundred percent juice. Well it is but it's actually juice that's been re combined with flavor packs right of so basically. It's been everything in it comes from orange juice but it's been processed to a degree that some consumers claim that it no longer counts as a natural product. So so the the conundrum here is what is natural because as you said it may all be derived from a plant or from a fruit. But there's a lot of processing going on so it may be natural but it's heavily processed. The second thing is if a Cheeto is natural doesn't mean it's good for you know it's still a cheeto which probably is not very good for you so there's a lot of complexity here in terms of if the consumer wants to eat foods that are good for them just because it's natural is no guarantee that's good for you right right absolutely while the definition of natural is still sort of up in the air it carries so much cultural meaning we associate it with the kinds of images that you see on the front of packages of foods that call themselves natural right pastoral groves and this kind of harmlessness and this kind of good for you ness right you you. Can you feel safe assuming that something natural is good for you and also good for the planet and I think that when you look at the way that the kind of environmental cost for instance of relying on an all natural food chain or things that kind of reasonably fall into what we consider natural that costs might be much higher than using processing technologies are ingredients that we might consider synthetic so? There's always a kind of balance here

How can I cut this on the back of a cereal box, and it's playing music now that was back up. Yes. It really is. It really is cool stuff. And that's why in collecting a lot of this. But now, I remember those Mike for sure what was the Stevie Wonder song that you remember being on that hotter than the fourth of July. It could be the album he's wearing he's got his hair beaded and braided and it's hotter than the fourth of July was the album for Stevie Wonder. Here you go pretty iconic air, you know, a while. I was waiting for you on hold for the lyrics of a song that when I was trying to think back to that period of time. The oldest song that I could think of that made an impression on me that I would think to other people like just the chorus was like the hook was just had me. Hook was the Doobie brothers blackwater. Oh, yes. And that's such an amazing song. I was reading the lyrics like I said just right now while I was waiting for you and just composition. The music of that song the lyrics. It's it's it's just like high art, man. It's just amazing stuff. Yeah. This was oh here we go. This one guys get stuck in your head to and it is incredible. Art. Yeah. Yeah.
