"How do we find unity amidst this tremendous division is their path. Yeah i wanna say as a christian unapologetically that the way we ultimately are going to find unity in this world is only through the gospel of jesus. Christ it's only through recognizing that jesus died so that he could make one new man he could take an to for example jew and gentile people who have nothing in common and he could buy washing their sins clean. Make them a family. Make them the household of god. So if if jesus can do that by dying and can unite jew and gentile together then whatever differences and boundaries. We have erected today. jesus can overcome those. Jesus has already overcome those. And when we trust in christ by faith than we are united to every christian every person who confesses jesus christ. We are united to them. It's not that racial reconciliation is something that is in our hands eric. It's not something. Oh we let's figure out a twenty nine step plan for this look. There are sins in our past in america and the church there are and we can recognize those and have honest conversations. We can recognize that we come from different backgrounds being recognize the skin color is gonna mean probably some some different experiences and yet we don't come to the church. We don't join local churches and start from a place of alienation and hostility to one another. We start from a position of brotherhood in. Jesus christ a starting point. It's interesting because there some churches and denominations struggle with these things more than others. But when you see the genuine love of jesus in somebody and they wanna pray for you and they wanna pray for your family and they care about you. I think a lot of people if they really see that they don't just see doctrine or ideas but when they see that it kind of changes them and so i think that is a way forward We don't have to talk about this stuff all the time but when we do have to talk about it let's talk about it and i even think that you know when i asked the question about unity part of me thinks who cares about unity we care about what's true and truth is truth and so if there's some people that refuse to agree with it how can i be unified with them. What am i supposed to do. I'm not supposed to kasbrols before swine. I'm supposed to speak the truth in love. Live out my faith. And ultimately trust people in in god's hands but i can't do anything or say anything or agree with anything. I'm bound by the truth. By the word of god so in a way. I think that's part of where we get to. This problem is that there are a lot of pastors. They act like well. I don't wanna be political. I don't wanna be left. I don't wanna be right. Well sometimes you have no choice. If you're anti-slavery that's a political thing. And if you're if you're anti hitler that's a political thing and if you want these things what is your gospel worth. I mean what. What are you even. What are you doing. Why are you even talking about god. If you're not willing to pay that price and demonstrate it yeah. We have a gospel worth living for and now. We need to show the world as christians have in centuries past that we have gospel worth dying for and we're willing. We're willing to pay that price. I mean it's an interesting thing because right now there are many people. They don't feel like they want to die for anything they don't really care and i think you're not living that's not life it's just existence and to know that i live for the truth. How many people have gone to their deaths with joy thinking that this is i would never have it any other way i think about it. If if your parent and you'd say well. I die for my kids. You wouldn't even hesitate. And i think what kind of father or mother would you be. If you'd say now. I if it's between me and them i just i wanna i wanna live so they can die you think that that'd be the sickest parent like what kind of a human being are you and a lot of people are living in half measures and if you wanna live your life in bright colors and really live you have to know what is true and be willing to live for it and it will give you joy. It's a beautiful thing. We're basically at a time owen Just great to see you. Great to be with you folks. The book is christianity and woke kness.

"In that body of ideology the hiss of a serpent an ancient serpent in the garden That's about it now when you talk again about whoa kness. This has infected many churches across america. Are you surprised that pastors don't seem to have the guts to stand against this. Or what do they have not. They don't have the intellectual chops. I mean if they read your book christianity and woke kness If they read a voting backrooms book folk lines. they'll get a pretty quick primer on. Why this is genuinely of the devil like do not play. Patty cake with the devil. This is nasty stuff but a lot of pastors are getting sucked in they are. I think there's a few different causes. It does take some time to get up to speed on woke kness. You do need to read a few books in the area. You want to know what the fundamental claims are. Voters book in. My book can be at two punch from salem. Hopefully in helping reduce some of that work and cut some of the corners. Even if i can use that phrase but yet that's one reality. That's one contributing factor. Another is that there is a lack of courage today. honestly there's just a lack of desire to take stanford jesus in cases where doing so is going to mean that you are disliked you lose market. Share people may accuse you of being a racist and eric. That's another part of this. Americans especially white. Americans fear nothing more than being called a racist. If you just throw that in someone's general direction across the room. But see what i find phil freakout we rethink. How funny that is it shows you how racism is is not a big issue when everybody's afraid of being called racist because trust me in the nineteen twenties in mississippi white people were not afraid of being called racists so the idea that people have internalized. This stuff tells you that we're society that does see it as an evil and that's being used as a cudgel by the marxist left. We'll be right back talking. Owen straughn the book is christianity and woke kness talking owen. Straughn s. t. r. a. c. h. n. The book is christianity and woke kness. It's a weird thing.

"Them. It totally can. I think of chariots of fire eric ladele. You'd think of a figure like that. He wins olympic. Laurie an olympic gold medal. And then what does he do. He gives it all up and he goes and becomes a missionary in china and he ends up dying in japanese war camp of a tumor in human terms. His life is a tragedy because he had so much talent. Potential and ability squandered it in christian terms in heavenly terms. His life is a triumph because he counted the cost and he went all in on jesus christ in his cause his churched the gospel and even though he died at a young age and even though he died in a war camp and hardly anyone even knew he died his life. Matter that eric is what appeals to so many men. Well that's why. I put him in my book. Seven men because these stories inspiring. We cannot fail to be inspired by this kind of behavior. These kinds of actions that demonstrate character. So eric little. I mean think about it eric. Little you know. He died earlier than he might have. And yet you know once you're dead you don't think like man. I just wished. I had another forty five years or i wish like once. You're in heaven you all you care about is did i live the way god wanted me to live. It's not about how much time you get. It's like did you use that time for god's purposes and we are all inspired by that we're going to go to a break i'm talking own stran-. The book is christianity and woke nece.

"Talking to owen straughn. yes it's pronounced straughn. It's not spelled like that. But you know who's keeping score owen stran- your book is christianity and woke kness. How the social justice movement is hijacking. The gospel and the way to stop it. So i just ended this previous segments saying that people need to understand. There's two worldviews. One is an atheistic or anti theistic marxist view and the other one is a biblical view. So what do you say to some young hip pastor. He's got his tattoos. He's got the the soul patch and he shaved his head because his hair was starting to go. And he's got funky glasses and he's just trying to reach out to the young people in their into this junk. What do you say to that guy. Yeah i want to say that fundamentally we're not trying to make christianity cool we're not trying to make it culturally acceptable We're not trying to be accepted by the world. That's a huge part of what i say in this book christianity and woke nece. I say that there's an antithesis. There's an old fashioned word for you. You don't hear that every day. No you don't. But i like to keep it that way. Please go ahead go like my work. I like it. Go ahead all right. Well there's a better than head jim on. yeah. I don't like that where now neither okay. Well we're agreed on that. There's an antithesis between christianity and the world. We're not the same. Jesus when he comes is not the same as the world. Jesus and the devil are not the same so we start from that foundation. We recognize that as christians. We're not trying to do this. Makeover of christianity where we put make up on it and make it palatable to the outside world. that's that's been a common way to try to attract people into the church. The secret sensitive movement is promoted that kind of thinking that's not sound biblical christianity. If only jesus had been at willow creek he might have had who knows maybe sixteen eighteen disciple instead of just twelve. You know could happen man. Yeah he needed to be more secret friendly. He was always doing this divisive stuff. You gotta eat my flesh and where it's like. Come on man you gotta reach the young people that turns them off the cannibalistic stuff. Yeah as our friend. Voting barca's said this whole movement dovetails with the idea that christianity is about niceness. It's about acceptance. It's about cultural palatability. Look we're not going out of our way to be an idiot as a christian. We're trying to bear the fruits of the spirit relations. Five twenty two twenty three but we recognize that as christians. Jesus has already told us that it. It is blessed for us to be persecuted and hated for righteousness sake and matthew five. So what i want to say say to that. Pastor is bro preach the gospel boldly preached the whole council of god preached the despise doctrines of god's word the ones that people love inherently and the ones that they don't love the justice of god is as important as the love of god is. But you don't often hear that. Well you know i was going to say there's a again as an irony here. The truth is attractive. Another we always say like well. The truth will drive people away whereas much as my drive. Some people away way it will attract other people when you say. Because i'm a christian. I i will not buy products from a company that is doing business with communist china and that is turning a blind eye toward the torture and murder and suffering of wieger muslims. So i'm not a muslim and i'm not planning to be a muslim but they are human beings made in the image of god and as a christian i'm commanded by the god who died for me to care about those weaker muslims and therefore for me. This is an issue. It's an it's an issue of human rights of conscience. I would say if we try to sell that idea. A lot of young people can say. I had not heard that so there are people suffering around the world and because of a christian. You care about your christian. You care about them. Even though they're not christians. And you're saying that we should do something about that. I think a lot of people would say wow i. i didn't. I didn't realize that. That's where christianity leads. You just thought it was. You know kind of dull and theological. I couldn't agree more. I think people are starved for conviction. I think we've all been conviction free diet. These diets hear about many. Many pulpits have been and actually sometimes pastors. Who do draw crowd think that they're drawing the crowd because you don't know they're attractive or they're really funny or they have this great personality or these other things in a good number of cases. Those pastors are drawing a crowd. So to speak crass language people are flocking to their ministry. because they're they're standing on truth and they're proclaiming things clearly and then those pastors who are worldly often end up stopping that but what we need to understand in our day is that people are starved for conviction and so we've just gone through this this weird year last year. I don't know if you've heard about the pandemic slash locked ring any bells but go ahead. It's weird but we just went through this whole thing where a good number of pastors in america canada and beyond did not even dare to open their church if the government or their local government was opposing them. Yeah and what is happening with pastors who did obey christ in gathering together to worship him even where the government said not to. You know being careful. In certain ways of course but what happened is those ministries actually in many cases skyrocketed. Because it's not just that the doors were opened. People were starved for the word of god. People are starved for truth. We're in this weird postmodern power game all of us now and so when you see a preacher up there who says you know what i'm gonna put my life and my ministry on the line and i'm going to open this church and preach the word of god that has a powerful effect well or and it's not just that the staffer truth although obviously that's a big piece of it but they're starved for courage. There starved for people who live as though this stuff is truth. Because if you say it's truth but you don't live like it's truth. People get the secret message. You don't really believe it's truth. Come on and i mean i learned that really from bonn hoffer. Is that you know. You can't say. I believe this or this of this this you have to live it. The devil is not fooled by the statement of faith and your churches website. If you don't live it out then your neighbors your.

"With my last name. The last time you tried to pronounce it. It became a video on twitter. Oh stop it. I didn't see that i see that. No you said. No bracken strachan and then i tried to correct you. Yeah i know. I'm sorry about that but listen i really do think i go out of my way. Not just to pronounce things correctly but dispel them correctly. I want my audience to look you up. Thank you. The book is christianity and woke. Now let's start. i'm a writer. And i care about words. The word woke kness is a hideous neil ageism but we're at a point where we have to use these hideous words so when you talk about christianity and woke kness and the social justice movement. We all know what you mean. But why did you write this book. A lot of people are talking about these kinds of things and before you answer that question. Tell my audience who you are what you're doing right now. Yeah so. I'm a provost and research professor of theology at grace bible theological seminary in conway arkansas. So that's what i do for a living so i trained pastors baptist. Pastors in arkansas. Loved doing that and as part of the overflow of that work. I wanted to try to respond to this ideology. We call woke kness because woke mrs advancing its imperial in our public square. It's imperial in the church and it takes no prisoners. Basically weakness is the idea that you and i all people need to wake up to the nature of racial injustice in america and then we need to wake up. Furthermore and advance social justice in america and so these terms as you said. They're playing with their own set of scrabble tiles and they know the meaning but few people out there in the church and in america. More broadly no the meeting and so christianity weakness as an attempt to distinguish the truth from the counterfeit. And this morning. I did a panel that you moderated that was you. Wasn't it was another owens drawn with charlie kirk and vody of welcome and i didn't say it then but i'll say it now Social justice if people want.

"S. t. r. a. h. n. the book is christianity and woke nece It's a weird thing. Owen when we talk about this stuff because you said people in america fear being called racist and it always makes me think of you know what did martin luther fear martin. Luther feared disappointing. God he feared Disobeying god if you're any kind of a christian that should be your number one fear and what people say about you or to you. How thin skinned And spoiled and pampered are american christians. That this is this. Is there concern if some young person with with no life. Experience thinks they're racist. Yeah you know. I think it's a failure to grapple with the biblical jesus at base because the biblical jesus so often cited as this paragon of koumba yacht tolerance when in reality the biblical jesus says that he has come to cast fire on the earth. He tells us that. It is a good thing for father to separate from mother over the kingdom of god for child to separate from parents he has come to set at odds those who would follow him from those who would not now. We always are trying to speak the truth in love. Be a movement of love as christians. If four fifteen but the biblical jesus came to throwdown the biblical jesus came to do the will of the father the biblical jesus came to create a people for himself by his blood. If fusions too we ha we have been given americanized therapeutic. Jesus who is this empathetic life coach. Who sits across you on the couch and only looks at you with adoring is when in reality the biblical jesus has fire in his eyes. The biblical jesus john one comes to these rough hewn fishermen and some of your people people you may be descended from even and he and he says follow me and he doesn't elaborate it's just fascinating. There's no instruction manual there's nuances and qualifications like we're also used to give doesn't say follow me. Let me explain in case of offending you. He doesn't say that he just follow me somehow trusting that they will that the authority of his voice. I it's kind of funny because what we're talking about. It is loving another. If i care about my kid i would say. Brush your teeth and they would say well. I don't remember as my teeth and he'd say hey. Go brush your teeth or you're gonna get it. What is that that is love right because you do. Not want your child's teeth right outta their head. We have a culture. Really a lot of the adults have have internalized. The bad russo. Ian ideas of the sixties and said. I don't wanna be harsh. I don't wanna be authoritative. That's the worst thing in the world. So i'm going to let you do whatever you want. And if your teeth right out of your head. Hey that's on. You like that'll be your issue because i will be watching the ball game. I don't care so it's really a lack of love ultimately so you know we say it's cowardice but it's it's cowardice is also a lack of love. Yes it's a lack of love. Jesus has a command presence to him. That i think a lot of pastors and christian leaders today fear having so in that analogy you just gave. I think the parent thinks that they're actually something really good. Yeah by not giving their child. Moral instruction wanna scar their child by brush brushes teeth. But they're not loving their child as you pointed out there hating their child in the same way in the church. If we call out worldly ideologies that are taking people captive colossians two eight these. These ideologies are imperial. As i said earlier. They're they're coming for you. And if you have high schoolers college age kids these ideologies. Want your children. They want your church. So we have to have the command presence of jesus we have to stand up in the temple and we have to throw down for the truth of god. We have to call ally ally in the truth the truth we have to take a stand and we're not doing so because we hate flesh and blood. We're doing so out of love because we want people you'd from captivity. It really is something that takes us back at least to the to the sixties but something happened where youth were exalted and they were presented as somehow flawless which is antithetical to scripture scriptures. Says we are all sinners and therefore it is the job of apparent to raise a kid in the right way if you let them go their own way. They're just going to get worse in their sin but we we really bought that and so the authorities. Since i was a kid have been less willing to take a stand against. I always think of in sixty eight when the students took over the columbia university president's office they didn't have the guts to say you'd better get outta here like you're going to get expelled yesterday. Like you better do what you're told this is not about you. This is not about what you want. They didn't have the guts because the society had bought this idea that the young people are beautiful flower power. Whatever that's an idea that goes back to russo. Because it's a fundamental mistake but the culture has been moving that way so that adults they wanna be hip like their kids used to be. The kids wanted to be. I want to dress like my dad. I want to just like my mom. I wanna i wanna grow up. That has been reversed. It's a dramatic reversal. It is and we saw last summer. For example with the riots that torched america caused billions of dollars of damage robbed numerous american citizens of their very lives. We saw a total failure of courage of virtue of manhood and so many areas there were so few people who are willing to stand up in the public square against evil and in so many places. The strategy was one of containment of evil. Well we'll just try to be on the outer edges of the perimeter and hope that this doesn't get out of hand. Meanwhile america was burning and it was out of hand and that is an indictment upon us that is a judgment of god upon his people think. Oh no we're risking the judgment of god. You have the judgment of god when you don't have strong leaders you have the judgment of god when you don't have strong men it's already there. Well think about it. it is not. I was saying earlier in our panel this morning but the people who burned and looted i. I can't really blame them. I blame for the people who didn't stop them and others. you have. mayors you have cops. It is their job to stop that and they said no. We're not going to go ahead if somebody's just go ahead. Why wouldn't you do that. If you are sort of messed up person you're angry and you act out and they say well go ahead and act out. We understand so. It is a failure of leadership and the failure of parents. It's the failure of mayors elected officials. They've all lost the courage of these basic cultural convictions. That there such a thing as truth and that we need to stand for it and there's a price to be paid And so we really are weep reaping the whirlwind wind in this culture folks. I'm talking to own. The book is christianity and woke nece. I hope you'll get a copy. It's published by salem books. Salem it seems publishes all the good books. They certainly publish all of my books.

"What wo- kness does is. It really seeks a kind of conversion a secular conversion of the individual that then means that they get militarized against the white people in many cases around them. So you'll have some college kid who goes to a school gets exposed to wo- kness and then goes back home to let's say normal white parents and then goes on the The aggressive against them and teaches dad and mom that this kind father and mother who raised them not perfectly maybe not even perfect on racial matters but this kind father and mother actually are part of the white hetero normative supremacist capitalist order. That is oppressing everybody in america. And that's the kind of evil ideology that is not just political. It's spiritual is there an uglier word than hetero normative. I'm just curious of anything out. There that can compete with the ugliness. Hetero normative hetero means different different normative so when you say head or normative this is again. It's one of these made up woke words. So let's let's define it for the people who actually have a life in our into this stuff. What what is hetero normative mean. It means that you're basically straight so. You're you're heterosexual and you see that. As the ordinary working of humanity we would say christians. that's god's creation order that those who are called to marriage get in get married man to a woman a woman to a man one man one woman for life so that is all classed as hetero normativity as used to call them breeders. Yeah it's another. But i mean it's just fascinating how people like we're gonna put you down because you know you think men and women were you know were made to to be together and get married and have kids. We're going to put that down because that's bourgeois. That's it's just. I mean the older you get the more you realize. There's nothing new under the sun. This is just a new version of the same stuff that we've been hearing over and over with different words and stuff now or normative and people just jump on that new bandwagon. We've discovered the meaning of life five minutes ago. It's exactly like that. And it's really marxist because karl marx if you study him is even if you read his communist manifesto or related documents..

And you're saying that we should do something about that. I think a lot of people would say wow i. i didn't. I didn't realize that. That's where christianity leads you. I just thought it was. You know kind of dull and theological. I couldn't agree more. I people are starved for conviction. I guess we've all been conviction diet diets. I'm here about an many. Many pulpits have been and actually sometimes pastors. Who do draw crowd think that they're drawing the crowd because you know they're attractive or they're really funny or they have this great personality all these other things in a good number of cases. Those pastors drawing a crowd so to speak scraps. Language people are flocking to their ministry. Because they're they're standing on truth and they're proclaiming things clearly and then those pastors who are worldly often end up stopping that what we need to understand in our day is that people are starved for conviction and so we've just gone through this this weird year last year. I don't know if you've heard about the pandemic slash lockdown at ring any bells but go ahead is weird but We just went through this whole thing. Where a good number of pastors in america and canada and beyond did not even dare to open their church if the government or their local government was opposing them. Yeah and what is happening with pastors who did obey christ in gathering together to worship him even where the government said not to. You know being careful. In certain ways of course but what happened is those ministries actually in many cases skyrocketed. Because it's not just that the doors were opened. People were starved for the word of god. People are starved for truth. We're in this weird postmodern power game all of us now and so when you see a preacher up there who says you know what i'm gonna put my life and my ministry on the line and i'm going to open this church and preach the word of god that has a powerful effect and it's not just that this truth although obviously that's a big piece of it but they're starved for courage there star for people who live as though this stuff is truth because if you say it's truth but you don't live like it's truth. People get the secret message. You don't really believe it's truth. Come on and i mean i learned that really from bonn hoffer. Is that you know. You can't say. I believe this or this this this you have to live it. The devil is not fooled by the statement of faith and your churches website. If you don't live it out then your neighbors your friends your enemies knows you don't really believe it. So god is not grading us on. Where do you go to church or what you claim to believe. He's grading us on what you actually believe as demonstrated by how you live and so when people see other people living heroically and saying i don't care what the consequences are. I'm more. I'm more worried about disobeying. God i'm more worried about disappointing. God who loves me and died from me. And i'm gonna live this way. It is contagious. And so when you see those passes and we all know them. Rob mccoy jack. Hibs greg denham we can go down. I've met so many of them. Greg walk in nashville area. There's so many pastors that have had an opportunity because of the weirdness of covid to do something that they couldn't have done three years ago and you're singing the numbers have exploded. People are dying for that kind of leadership that kind of you know you say truth. Of course the truth but it's also like to demonstrated they. It's like we just haven't been.

"Folks. i'm talking to owen straughn. yes it's pronounced straughn. It's not spelled like that. But you know who's keeping score owen stran-. Your book is christianity and woke ness. How the social justice movement is hijacking the gospel and the way to stop it so i just ended this previous segment saying that people need to understand. There's two world views. One is an atheist thick or anti theistic marxist view and the other one is a biblical view. So what do you say to some young hip pastor. He's got his tattoos. He's got the The soul patch and he shaved his head because his hair was starting to go. And he's got funky glasses and he's just trying to reach out to the young people and their into this junk. What do you say to that guy. Yeah i want to say that fundamentally we're not trying to make christianity cool we're not trying to make it culturally acceptable. We're not trying to be accepted by the world. That's a huge part of what i say in this book christianity and woke me. I say that there's an antithesis. There's an old fashioned word for you. You don't hear that every day. No you don't. But i like to keep it that way. Please go ahead go like my work. I like it. Go ahead all right. Well there's an better than hedge amman. Yeah i don't like that. Where now neither okay. We're agreed on that. There's an antithesis between christianity and the world. We're not the same. Jesus when he comes is not the same as the world. Jesus and the devil are not the same and so we start from that foundation. We recognize that as christians. We're not trying to do this. Makeover of christianity where we put make up on it and make it palatable to the outside world. that's that's been a common way to try to attract people into the church. The secret sensitive is promoted that kind of thinking that's not sound biblical christianity. If only jesus had been at willow creek he might have had who knows maybe sixteen eighteen disciple instead of just twelve. You know could happen man. Yeah he needs to be more secret friendly. He was always doing this divisive stuff. You gotta eat my flesh and what it's like come on you gotta reach the young people that turns them off the cannibalistic stuff. And as our friend voting baucus said this whole movement dovetails with the idea that christianity is about niceness. It's about acceptance. It's about cultural palatability. Look we're not going out of our way to be an idiot as a christian. We're trying to bear the fruits of the spirit relations. Five twenty two twenty three but we recognize that as christians. Jesus has already told us that it. It is blessed for us to be persecuted and hated for righteousness sake and matthew five. So what i want to say to that. Pastor is bro preach the gospel boldly preached the whole counsel of god preach the despise.

"And as we sort of Link this on off even more to the early earlier days and sort of the Crux this podcast, which is that Gordon Strachan not necessarily the archetype off the plan manager not necessarily the archetype of apply that would suck. , manager, even when I was growing up far too young to remember him as a player at all. And as we said at the start of the podcast his enthusiasm is infectious this with football is something. Continue to reverberate through his entire career the question. I want to ask you as not quite necessarily the definitive question of this podcast, but at least the point which is that we're appointments wage. We've we are far removed from the days of a Gordon Strachan to the point where when he was stopped from Middlesbrough he refused compensation from the PFA home and said no shit. Please don't give me that cuz no one's ever doing that. But what I mean is that like we talked about tactics and about the advancement of the the technical ability the players but to a certain degree. Do you think football itself as a game has moved on in terms of the way? It's played? Yeah. Yep. I've been to show answer is at the very top level it has but then it always has things always have gone in Cycles new systems of come in to replace what was previously the new system and so there's always been developments Improvement depends on you ask certainly now see players a lot fitter, you know alot stronger physical and probably got the sports be stronger mentally as well. I mean probably, you know going back to Iraq and started his career view offered like a mind coach or a mental. Yeah would have not got a positive reaction for the culture of that time when he said himself he had serious problems when he was with Alex Ferguson initially Aberdeen in regard to his own mental stability and foggy foggy did but in a way that he wasn't necessarily able to cope with it, obviously Coke because he carried on but there was no real room or scope for him..

"Luck as a driving force for for all because there are certain moments in certain games where a lucky break and go your way. But ultimately it's up to you to log. Take advantage of the order up to the opposition depending on the way you want to look at it and it doesn't come down solely to that. But in terms of a break in terms of writing on the wall for Coventry in the future, it's just something that happened with which would foreshadow. What was to come staying up by virtue of the fact that Middlesbrough got docked points is very much a part of that. Well, you know, we always say Christmas. Is an important. And that transpired to be the case here you mentioned how biotech came in for his debut kind of that kind of insult impact came and got a half way through ninety-seven ninety-eight season and even though it may not go down as you know, some comedy fans mind as the most memorable. That was the choices they got in the straken area to break in the top ten qualify for Europe because they're in with a Chance until the last day of the season and I suppose in terms of you haven't got all the good players wage.

"We went from 2018-2019 all the way back to the first season in the Premier League last season, we decided to tell the story of the Premier League through the players who sells and this time around we're going one step further and looking at the men behind the players that controlled the action. We don't mind. I'm going to start with the question that I start with every single cast which is what is your general consensus opinion of Gordon Strachan to be honest with Strachan. I think it is one of those episodes where by the initial gut feeling opinion didn't really cause too closely with the actual reality ones. I did some digging around because I don't remember him being around very long or doing very much but he was around for a lot longer. I'd also a lot earlier cuz in terms of Premier League about your experience, it's over 15 years since he was last match of any kind of thing. I must have had like a season somewhere else know it's funny should start actually because for someone that hasn't managed in the Premier League for Thursday. Long-time, there is more than enough familiarity with him to go. Hang on really a lot of managers are a lot of British manager specifically out stay there. Welcome in very specific ways contractor hasn't it just feels like he's been around longer because he wasn't Middlesbrough he was at Scotland and also as well to a certain degree, which sort of is the filler for all of this. He was just long enough to be on the periphery of our attention the entire time especially being as though there are a couple of memorable results and European campaigns for Celtic now based of every one good thing we have to sell to Europe that piece of added a number five years to his relevancy. Yeah minded a public. Well anyone that's listening to this podcast for first time. We don't go about things the normal standard way we go from our end of the managerial slash Premier League career is what we look to focus on to the start and we talked about familiarity with which that we hold contract and he obviously has dead..

Newly-discovered type of lung cell has central role in cystic fibrosis

"There's still a math problem. Okay. Still a math problem. You still need donor, you will, you know, or an organ donor situation and to to do the providing. So. Well, we're getting better. I mean, we're getting closer if still very far away. I feel like we're getting closer to to being able to three d print, organ, scaffolding, right? We're, we're getting incrementally closer which means if we can get better at this side of it, then. You'll need substantially less lungs. So we're perfecting the system here and then incrementally close to a lot of things in this world. But, but yeah, the. With scaffolding thing is, is is a real thing that's going to happen in question is, do you need indeed? Do you need the scaffolding? Do you need it to come from a human pigs? Have the reason it use pigs as test animals is because they have very similar physiological and anatomical parameters. So we use pig hearts for pig transplants. Is it possible that we could also use the pig lung scaffolds that have been seated with the human, the human lung cells? Right. So would that be in inbetween until we can three d. print the scaffolds? And I think a big part of it is the fact that it came from an unrelated animal because that that does that does indicate that you won't have the typical organ rejection at problems, which yeah, I think you're right. I think it may not matter then. Protein scaffolding doesn't appear to have any of create any that means system reaction because it's loaded with the tissues from the donor. So it doesn't matter. Maybe we're already there. Maybe this is maybe this is it. Maybe we don't have to wait for the three d. architecture. Maybe we can use pick lungs. Yeah, at least it's a good stopgap potentially if it works in humans and then the next the next question is, can we use this methodology? I mean, the big issue here they're talking about lung damage and has being a leading driver of the need for these lung transplants. And the fact there is an organ shortage. Well, if your lung has something like cystic fibrosis, which is the result of a genetic issue, if you don't want your new lung to be seated with your cells, even though it's tissue matched because your they just this week, published a new paper about a new, a new cell type in the lung that was found that they think is one of the main causes of cystic fibrosis, which might be responsible for it. So the question is then, can we find that cell type genetic and you had an or genetic engineering genetic, you know, change fix the mutations or I mean, what can you. Do you know? How could we have my floor, right? Yeah, you might be able to you. You can. I mean, it's not might. This is beyond Mike. You can do that. Yeah, you can absolutely do that. We are doing it. Oh, it's so exciting is so exciting. This is this is pretty exciting news. I had loved. I mean, the fact that they had up to two months revival of an animal. Then they got this is that's how long they even human assumed that they would be able to look out, but are they could have gone much much longer or you know they were, they were studying, was the integration adapt serve the healing process in there as well. But the way in that's that after two months, I suppose you're just looking at the, you know, at a lot in and it, it's not really as interesting. I love looking at just a lung. That's exciting. Yes. That's great. Let's see. Moving on forward, what else do we have other than the we're saving the world with bioengineered lungs that's happening. Well, want to talk about some bones. Yeah. Where did vertebrates come from. This is a big question. Where did the bones of vertebrates come from? And researchers have several have had several hypotheses about where the bones of Vert of vertebrates us and our ancestors where they came from. And so we know that there early on four hundred million years ago, the evidence for our skeletons early evidence for the volition of vertebral columns and skeletons were found in fossil fishes called hetero Strachan 's, hetero dragons.
