We like to keep this contest completely loosey. Goosey because the show airs across this country in a wide variety of time slot. Some of the shows are live. Some are not. We want to give as many listeners. As possible as many shots at the prizes we can we'd like as many entrances possible and entrance are allowed to enter multiple times.

I don't know even with rules in place in social distancing how you police that how you bring. Tv crews in their tracks staff crew members race team. You're going to have to be in close quarters one another. It's not proper social distancing.

Was it pretty clear from a very early age that this was something that you wanted to get into you've been successful in your only twenty years old and your future is is wide open here but was this something that you know you were pointed to at a pretty early age Some, some very early manly. It actually all started with a commercial with Michael Andretti was Jillette. Commercial. Okay. From what I was told I was very young I was only about four years old then in the Christmas of two, thousand and five, there were to go cuts under the Christmas tree. Wow and. He actually went by my mom stock in bomb. Everything started and you know as soon as I. Started driving I instantly fell in love with it and never wanted to stop and here here we are today in all fifty years later and it's quite the. Clintons non-driving for for Michael Andretti. In Defoe two thousand and it's amazing. It started with a commercial with Michael, and now you're part of his organization but you know it's it's quite clear from anybody that we have on the show to chart your career Dublin that without your parents support and your and your parents sort of pointing you in that direction, it would never be possible for you to get into this I mean without. Support and and them sort of guiding you this. This would never happen. Would it off course I? Mean you know at the end of the day you have because what you do, but you also need to correct people around you and the right support. You know it's many things together that that make us successful racing driver. You know it's not just the one element it's it's a complex puzzle of. Lender I'm very, very lucky. I've had You know my mom mother and father's support from variety early age and they've always pushed me. To do better and strive for more our and you know I can never thank them enough for that. Never repay them per where everything they've done absolutely, and it's it's a universal phraseology from any driver that we've ever talked to rookie intermediate or someone who's you know a veteran that can remember back to when they first started with your parents and the one good thing about this is a lot of kids get get started in karting and then kind of fall by the wayside. But you started winning races and started winning championships when you were young and that is a huge catalyst to keep you going to keep you motivated. Isn't it? Of course you know I I. You know the results are definitely at the excitement. You know you know I Greg and other people I've raced with no. When I was young winning car races and championship is are a lot of the now or Formula One and Indycar. have reached a professional of motor sports. So it's nice to see that the same people who are in the front back then or now succeeding. Now what a team to learn from though you know you're part of the Andretti autosport organization you think of Michael Success. You Know Marco was there and certainly on the indy-car side with Ryan Hunter Ray and Colton Herta and then of course. Mario the legend hanging around I mean what a team to learn from if you're if you're a young guy like yourself wanting to learn, can you think of a better squad to do it with? Honestly, I really can't you know and eat off the situation this year with with this whole pandemic and everything that you know the very limited limited time we've card before actually starting to Camp Egypt for swamp.

He says at you mentioned last week or at least recently after noting that f one would not be recent North America or South America this year with Covid Nineteen F one looking to add additional venues for F. One of the US you know that they're looking at both New Jersey and Miami is possible sites. My question why not consider the crossroads of America Indianapolis. Motor speedway, it's basically turn key the garages and the course or they're. Good geographic location in the US. A new owner Roger Penske might make it happen. What do you think? Here's another entry Trivia question the twenty twenty, two, Subaru wrx STI will have a to the additional power this year where to go yup and appreciate your entry once again Paul. You've probably heard me say this over and over again because repeat repeated over and over again, it was the perfect place for Formula One to have the US Grand Prix at the Indianapolis Motor speedway and the George family spent millions upgrading that place. Putting that road course in the NASCAR is using this weekend of course, Indycar runs on that thing as well upgrading the the paddock area near the pagoda there spent millions upgrading it, and Bernie kept his hand out he wanted more and more all the time the sanctioning fee according to my context kept on going up. So they said no, we're not going to have it here anymore, which is a shame because basically f one in my mind just price themselves out of the marketplace to have it to have the US Grand Prix. Apples, what a perfect place to have it but don't f one decided that Hey, they wanted more money and they're not there anymore. Maybe Roger can broker a deal to get them back exactly. Sure. But they never should've left Indianapolis on the first place I thought it was a a wrong move not to continue running their Paul. Thank you for your entries and everyone else that that got one in here for us this weekend send issue contest entries are comments, join us, US Eric, race on radio, DOT CA to. Connect and enter facebook and instagram resign radio network and twitter at et race line. Still this question two, thousand, twenty, two, Subaru wrx. Guy reported the common without engine power. How many horsepower is the next Gen wrx expected to put out? Let's work in the pit stop right here. Well, than part two with NASCAR champion crew chief turned into car engineer coal pearn. This is race line presented by Subaru for more on the be ours. Ed Sports. Goop go to Subaru dot ca slash VR's Ed. This is the race line radio network. This is Marco Andretti listened to race line radio. Canada's National Radio Motorsport Authority are twenty eight consecutive seasons on the Eric Loss Canada we are the race line radio network straps way on Tokyo's colpon former radio guests was crew chief for Martin Tricks Juniors Nascar, Cup championship season for furniture row, Joe Gibbs, racing, and twenty seventeen call left the sport to operate a ski and Hiking Company in Columbia but he is back now hired by ED carpenter racing as. Lead engineer on Connor Dailies Indianapolis five hundred entry taking and INDYCAR versus a NASCAR stock car and other revelations in part to recorded just before indy five hundred qualifying with coal pearn back with us on. Race. Line Radio Your first crack at the Indianapolis, five hundred it is the biggest automobile race in the sport bar non even without fans this year because of see nineteen, it is still a huge big deal. Yeah I think. So obviously we'll be very weird experience you know I haven't been to race yet when no fan so that'll be that'll be different. Definitely a different experience but for me I don't know any different I. Guess makes it a little more even sure of course you've likely been warned about the speedway in Indy cars I mean, you've been there with the NASCAR stock car with the brickyard events but with an Indycar persnickety things like air temperature, track temperature, Wind Sun Angle, going down below the behind the grandstands for happy hour. All big effects on how indycar handles there. When trying to get your car around the place, it's a, it's a fiddly place. With the STOCKCAR, but it probably is more findlay with an INDYCAR. Would you think so I don't think so I think okay, I mean it's all. It's all the same things we have to deal with on the Cup side I just don't take talk now because much you know on the east side. So definitely, it's like said Super Finicky finicky track for you know for high speed is is and how flat it is easy to see lies. So you know I've been been through a Lotta tests days there. You know your your full circle and a full day just chasing the track whole time. So I think from that standpoint I at least feel you know feel pretty comfortable I don't feel could get caught off guard. Too. Bad. With outside of things colpaert back with US radio lead engineer on conor dailies entry for ED. Carpenter racing in the upcoming one hundred and fourth running of the greatest spectacle in racing the Indianapolis five hundred indy it's balanced getting it to stick you know with the throttle open all the way around theoretically that rectangular track and speeds well over two hundred and twenty miles an hour. That's sweet balanced between enough downforce for cornering but not too much. It creates too much. Drag on the straightaways. Is that kind of the basic setup Kohler horribly oversimplifying it? It I mean I think you know if he's out, you know a huge part of it. You're basically going to be in traffic balk of the time unless you're some I'll be the one guy to call five the poll needs. Happen. You know running and traffic, and then you know being tuned for that as you know, a huge part of it, honestly a lot of what I had to go through last year on the on the Cup side with the different rules package there ally was very similar to what this is not get. So worked up on on your single car speeds more work on your traffic soon, affect so I think you know I'm how? I'm happy to have that experience for sure and I think that'll help. Definitely you know so far reading notes and then looking at data and seeing what they what they experience it it all makes sense. So I feel like reese though what the problem is under Snyder trying to figuring out conor Daly is a driver known as Dad Derek an awful long time coal. We've charted connors career since he started he's done Weld Indianapolis. Good lapse ten in the race Last year knows how to get around there. You just need to give him a car that he can fight with. It seems so simplistic in the description, but in wants to go after it has been working to get where he is a long time. So he's a keener and I don't know whether you know that that usually works well and. I think you're looking forward to working with him because he's certainly looking forward to working with you. Yeah. It's been run really well, and those this year you know not free cr but with Carlin and it's right I. Think it's confidence is high, and like said, he ran a good good strong on their last year. So she's super super excited, super keen, and we had. A chance to work together on on a simulator already. So that was gonna hit the Kinda. Good. You know work together and heared here's feedback on that side of things. So obviously different when you get in the real world, but at least least forget that belts and you he's been working with a lot of different teams over the last couple years. So he's he's. Relationships you know I think that helps for sure. You just got there. Basically don't know if you've had a chance to to speak with Ed Carpenter himself he's the Oval Guy kind of an oval expert. He's a rather low key level headed kind of guy. You think he's the kind of owner that leaves you alone to do your job. Cool. Maybe that's a loaded question I don't know. I, mean I think. So I mean he's definitely pretty involved because he's still still drives and he's any own studio. Yes. Seem Super super level headed and You know they always put a huge emphasis on this race that was definitely a comforting comforting factor becoming area. Now, I. Know How important is them and you know how much effort they put on so hopefully puts you in a position to succeed Lee. Bentham is a fellow Canadian the team's driver coach Nice to have that can knock influence there. They're crazy I didn't even know that. Yeah. Ready for the simulator and leaves on there I'm like Oh wait what? I was growing up is You know as this little kid leaves the news the man and go karts so that's it. You know that's that's pretty cool and obviously you know huge Fan of the whole players program when he was in it, that's enough. So Yeah Kinda Neat We haven't we haven't seen each other yet since I've been here but definitely looking forward to CNN. Is No recogni recollection of me being a little. Kid and go. Now I definitely always I remember Amway back so You'll enjoy working with them. He's one of our favorite humans. He's a good guys in a marvelous sense of humor and very, very talented, and he's he's done very well with a team, a driver coach. So I think you guys are GonNa GonNa hit it off and be really good together. You are also an analyst for NASCAR DOT. COM Calls Sawyer postings on social media. How did you link doing that kept your hand captured in it? You know and catch you connecting, right? Yeah. It's been good. I. You know they asked over the winter if I'd be interested in something I wasn't really ready to and then the whole Cova Greg Cap and they reset again us and I was like, God, why not you know I figured I was true mostly watching the races anyway my little. Make some do something related to it so it's been yeah. Different experience I think Yeah. It's been good to be other Kinda, give it a different different feedback side of it and I think always you know done more media stuff for the last couple of years. So it's definitely a different different world to get into and you know a different experience for sure it's. Nice to to try something new from trying to absolutely might be a bit of a corny question but did you miss the the Nascar community? You should say it's an arduous schedule. You said you were at peace with the decision to to go and run the run the business in BC. Did you did you miss it at all? not really last night but like you being honest. That's No I. Mean for sure. I mean I think in this the competitive aspect of it but everything else? No I don I mean, my life is. Is Way more balanced is very consuming lifestyle and being around my wife and kids more and more of them. Normal life. I've realized how much actually I was. I was missing out on away. So I sleep played better in later you. Definitely you know even better feeling better and I miss missile parts of but no no way at all the grind and all the dark days that come with it. Yeah. That's good and appreciate your honesty you and Marty seem to get along well to have you have you spoken to him since and d does he know about your New Gig? Yeah. Yeah. No, we talk every week I still. Man Still Pretty involved on on their side with a nineteen and still know pay attention to talk back and forth with jeans all week long. So try to be you know sounding voice there for him and sure yeah. Talked to talk to my about every week really still. So involved just able to shut my computer off on the races over and go do something else not a lot. Different from that standpoint. Okay. That's good You know you you mentioned it's a one off and the right many guys around with your credentials and experience that can do one offs like this coal may mean the obvious question is if this works out well and you seem to enjoy it I, mean, as you say, you really enjoy your balanced life and spending time with your family and that's paramount because your family always come first. But could you see yourself sticking around maybe an Indycar? Or maybe doing some more after the five hundred if it works out and feels okay I don't think so I think maybe you know. Maybe don't come and do the five hundred. Every year I think would be the the extent of it and really see myself. You know with the whole travel side and everything wanted to do you know to do any more than that? It's fine. So you've never gonNA say never but no definitely, not not in my crosshairs anyway well, that that's cool and and as one of the things we we like a bunch of colas restraint shooter in your in your and your obvious in terms of being. Honest and that's one of the things that we like about should excellent to get caught up with you again. Sir, we always very excited to see you back in the game on the indy-car side with conor Daly and ed carpenter racing the very best of luck in the five hundred we watching of course.

Welcome to parttime genius. Production of I heart radio. Guess what mango. It is officially Charlie Brown season. I know I am so excited. You know right between Thanksgiving and Christmas is when my family buckles down and we watch all all those specials and it is wild. It's been over. Fifty Years in some of the big ones actually came up. But what is weirdest to me is that my kids are so into. Charlie Brown like almost quaint. Ruby had a peppermint patty birthday party when she turned three. Because she assumed everyone was into peppermint patty too and so we just just hand out headbands and did a gym. I love this fact and the fact that probably more than half the kids had no idea who patty was at least going into the party unsure. Rubi told in all about her but anyway so why are they so into the specials you know I have no idea. Something just clicked with them but like Henry actually based his Thanksgiving speech a few years ago completely on the one that I think Charlie Brown gives Thanksgiving special. And we've definitely watched. It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown Charlie Brown Christmas Christmas a whole bunch of times. But you know they're even into some of the oddball ones like race for your life. Charlie Brown which is about the gang going to camp. That's very you did hit on some of the big ones there but I do think you forgot one of the most important of them all of course. It's Arbor Day Charlie Brown. I do not think we watch that one is is that a real thing or you're just making it up. Oh it's absolutely real thing. It was just one of the forty five Charlie Brown specials out there forty five. I had no idea that many oh man. I'm I'm surprised that you don't watch. It's the Easter Beagle. Charlie Brown every single Easter Island Mr without that special show. And actually there's also it's your first Kiss Charlie Brown which is another classic and also kind of weird. But we've got a lot of catching up to do here. And with the holiday holiday season upon us we thought now would be the perfect time to look into the history of our favorite melancholy grade schoolers. So we'll talk about the origin of the comic strip including the real life inspiration inspiration behind some of the characters. The story of how the beloved Christmas special came to be and how it was very nearly canceled and production. Now of course we'll also talk a little. What about the reason? Why Creator Charles? Schulz hated the name peanuts and why some fans can't stand. snoopy is a lot to cover. So let's dive in Hey there podcast listeners. Welcome the part time genius we'll Pearson and as always I'm joined by my good friend main guest ticket or and on the other side of the soundproof glass just shuffling a stack of buttered toes. kind of like it's a deck of their friends and producer. tristen McNeil and I do have to admit when Tristan said he wanted to recreate the famous meal from the peanuts Thanksgiving. Thanks giving special. I really never dreamed it would be this theatrical. But it's really quite a show. Don't you think you didn't think testing would be theatrical. I I don't know it just surprised me. Yeah I mean I have no idea how he's doing this. He's wearing those slices like he's a blackjack dealer or something like that. He's giving the Thanksgiving special little. I love it I feel like it's always the one that gets overshadowed by both like the Halloween special in the Christmas special. But we've had sauce for a Charlie Brown thanksgiving at my house. Especially where put together that last minute. Feast for Charlie Brown and he's got all that popcorn and pretzels but when the kids are gone snoopy and woodstock are just back of their dog house and they've got a lavish spread for themselves with Tonkin. PA roasted vegetables. Even this giant cooked Turkey and they're basically living get off while the kids are just eating a snack food. I mean it's kind of a jerk. Move but when you think about it. It's it's that mix of Whimsey and low key meanness that are sort of par for the course for peanuts. For instance did ever strike you as just a little bit weird that woodstock would help snoopy carve and eat the Turkey. I mean it is a bird you know what's funny about is that I never actually gave it much thought but it turns out. You're not alone in this Lee Mendelson. Who is the executive producer onto peanuts? Specials he actually jetted to that scene because he was so weirded out by it but because idea comes straight from Charles Shulz peanuts creator. He was overruled ruled. The scene aired is planned. What was funny is that Mendelssohn did eventually get his way so all these years later? CVS asked Mendelssohn to cut three minutes from the special so they can can fit in. You know more commercials and Mendelssohn seize the chance and he removed that scene of woodstock eating Turkey so you can only see him eating pie instead but then years later the rights of special move to ABC and the network decided to aired. Uncut meaning. Woodstock is once again accountable. It feels a little bit odd. Be Kicking off. So far peanuts show with the fact about bird cannibalism but it also kind of feels appropriate. You know given how dark Charlie Brown and his chums could often be actually in fact. Have you ever seen the very first peanuts trip. I have and I don't remember yes. So it shows a boy and a girl just sitting on the sidewalk and this boy Sherman as his his name he says well here comes good old. Charlie Brown good old Charlie Brown. Yes sir good old Charlie Brown and when Charlie Brown is out of Sight Shami ads. How I hate him? And that's the punchline. So yeah there's there's definitely some darkness to the world of peanuts no matter how cute or simplistic Listrik. The characters might look but there's also incredible warmth and humor there as well and it feels like it's that unique mix. That really made peanuts this enduring part of pop culture not only in the US but all around the world so we've definitely got a lot to go through today but where do you WanNa start. Why don't we spend a few minutes on the man behind the peanuts? What's himself Charles M.? Shot so this name sounds familiar enough. Because we've all seen his name a million times it's signed at the bottom of each and every peanuts strip all seventeen seventeen thousand eight hundred ninety seven of them while but despite the constant exposure lots of people still miss name him as shorts with a t it's actually S.. Chu Accord medium. The misspelling is so common. That's actually appeared wrong in more than thirty thousand articles to date as well as the original opening opening to the peanuts Christmas special. I guess someone caught it at the very last minute. But there was an error that was going to be aired in the premier. While I guess I've actually never thought about this and I'm sure that I'm guilty of making the same mistake but what what kind of name is Scholz like. Is it German yeah. His Dad call. SCHOLTZ immigrated from Germany Minnesota which is where he met that Charles's mom Dina and Charles. Was this only child. He was born in Nineteen twenty two. He grew up in Saint Paul. What's interesting is that Saint? Paul is one of the few places in the country that has has both Super Hot Summers and freezing cold winters. And it's the same for the peanuts kids right like. There's so many strips that are centered on these summer activities like playing playing baseball flying kites selling lemonade on hot days. But then you have a ton of strips where there's like a foot of snow on the ground and everyone's playing ice hockey so then is peanuts actually set in Saint Paul. I mean there's some debate about that. Some fans think disturbed set near Santa Rosa California. which is where Schulz lived? Once the peanuts became a hit Eh. But that doesn't make much sense when you look at all the strips said in the winter but with little evidence there is in the strips does kind of point to either Saint Paul or Minneapolis. Bliss says their hometown for instance. There's a strip in nineteen fifty seven and implied that the characters lived in Hennepin county which is in Minnesota and two years before that there was one where Schroeder confesses. He always thought his hero. Beethoven was a native of Minnesota which is presumably just like him all right. Well all of that makes sense. You'd actually expect a cartoonist. Are Tuning to set the strip about childhood in their hometown. That wouldn't be that surprising and It'll be pretty on theme for Schultz because when you look at the comic so many elements of the peanut outstrip turn out to be somewhat by graphical I mean just listen to this breakdown. Shurmur was a childhood friend. Schroeder was a caddy at the golf course scholtz worked at as a a teenager. Linus and Lucy. Van Pelt got their last name from a man's Schultz served in the army with meanwhile Lucy's character was inspired by Schultz his first wife and his mother. I guess there's another tactic does seem to be the case Aca I was reading this tribute to Charles shows from Bill Watterson who is my hero and And he thought peanuts as the gold standard of comic strips and this is his take on lucy quote. I was struck less by the fact that Schulz drew on his troubled marriage for material than by the sympathy that he shows his tormentor and by his ability to poke fun at himself which is actually pretty interesting like aac Lucius annoying mean-spirited but you don't ever really hate her for it No that's true. And you know he was looking for inspiration everywhere even line is his is famous. Blue blanket came straight from Schultz's life when his daughter was younger she was obsessed with her own security blanket. Yeah of course. They're going to be stealing from life when you've got like a daily deadline and working at that sort of volume. But I I think the one character I always think about is the little red haired girl who goes unnamed. And and. That's the one that Charlie Brown always had that huge crush on she was apparently based on Schulz's girlfriend in the late forties. This redhead named Donna Mae Johnson and after the awarded to them work together at this correspondent school in Minneapolis and after a few years of dating shows finally worked up the nerve to propose to her. But then Donnie turn them down and married a different guy a few months later and it was obviously this huge blow to his pride but in the end that were deal actually inspired one of his most famous characters and supposedly he and Donna may remained friends for years later. I mean there are some definite shades of Charlie Brown to that story and you can see that throughout his work. Yeah definitely and it makes sense because both Charlie Brown and snoopy they're often considered stand-ins for Schultz himself. In fact Charles's son Craig Scholz once said about him. Each of the characters represents apiece of our dad. Charlie Brown was his real self and snoopy was what he wanted to be. which is Kinda funny to think about but it makes sense and both characters also oh had real world counterparts to Charlie? Brown was actually the name of a friend that Charles worked with prior to creating peanuts and snoopy was based on Charles's own childhood dog. Doug this English pointer Beagle who was named spike and whose name would later be used for one of snoopy's brothers so if Schultz had a dog names by then. And where's the name. snoopy come from apparently Charles had originally planned to call his dog sniffy but then found out that another comic featured a dog with the same name aim so he had to change it to something else but luckily he had this backup when he was a kid. His mother suggested that if they ever got another dog they should name him. snoopy and so. That's that's where the name came from way back back to the real world snoopy for a second. It's pretty striking. How devoted to his dog Charles was just like Charlie Brown would later be snoopy? So how how do you mean the very first drawing that Charles ever published was his dog spike. So Charles was just fifteen years old at the time when he submitted this drawing an actually a fact along with it to Ripley's believe it or not and it got published nationally. I mean that's pretty cool. But what was so unbelievable about spike died autumn published. In Ripley's the drawings captions said that Spike was quote. A hunting dog that eats pins tacks and razor blades. So he didn't exactly have snoopy's refined how it but it does sound like spike shared his taste for adventure. There was this article in mental floss about this. That was talking about the dog would make a break for freedom anytime the door was open. Only come back because he loved going on car ride so whenever spike got loose Charles would run to his dad's car and basically just honk doc the horn as a way to lure the dog back. I mean we. We actually had a dog like that growing up. She run off for the only way to get back to unwrap a slice of American. Exactly that's talk. Works is so weird that like that plastic peel was coming off the crafts. That will make a race back to the house. But you know having any dog keeps losing. Sounds Very Charlie Brown to me as well and speaking of some of my favorite peanuts factor are the ones that overlap between Charlie Brown's childhood and Charles Schultz's this like there's a surface level stuff. Both them had fathers who were Barbara's but then they're also wonderfully tragic tidbits from shelters life. That feels so Charlie Ali Brown like his dad used to give haircuts but when customers game in you'd have to hop out of the chair so you just have to grump around and wonder about with half a haircut. How does it sound so very Charlie Brown? It's pretty great. Yeah I know and there was one time when Charleston Line at a movie theater because they were handing out candy bars to the first one one hundred kids to buy tickets that day and of course Scholtz was one hundred. I kid in line. When he was in high school teacher convinced him to draw some comic I knew yearbook and so of course being super timid and socially awkward? He's a little nervous but he's desperately wants to be a cartoonist. So you overcome his shyness. SC submits artwork and the yearbook comes out. Of course everyone had forgotten to include work like not a single one of his cartoons. Well that's a tough break. It is interesting to see that. Not every aspect of peanuts is drawn from Scholtz own experience. You know if you take the character. Franklin for instance he was introduced says the Comic Strips First Black Character. This was in July of nineteen sixty eight and this was just a few months after the assassination of MLK junior yeah. It's amazing that's fifty years ago this year and and and this is based on reader suggestion right. He that's right at the reader was a mother of three name. Harriet Glickman men and she wrote the shelves just a few days. After the death of Martin Luther King and now in that note Glickman noted the power that mass media has to shape what she called the unconscious attitudes the two of our kids so she has scholtz to add one or more black characters. Two strokes and this was so that children could see that respect and friendship was possible between people all of all races and was pretty moved by the idea but he didn't add the character immediately. He was actually a little bit nervous. That the move might seem to be patronizing harnessing to black readers but glickman continued to correspond with him over the course of several months you know he decided to change his mind on this and on July. First he wrote to say that Glickman's should watch for the new character to appear by the end of the month which of course he did and so does show suffer any blowback from from this. When when the stroke comes out well you know you had some black readers that did argue that Franklin was a bland character and therefore somewhat patronizing but in general readers? Appreciated the added representation as well as you know how kind and worry free Franklin was compared with other peanuts kids. But it's still. It was undoubtedly a tense time for America Erica for an artist to debut what was essentially the first minority character in a mainstream comic strip. But other than this brief exchange were Franklin mentions that his father was a soldier in Vietnam. There's really nothing. Overtly political about his inclusion like Charlie Brown loses his beach ball only to have it found and returned to him by a boy named Franklin Glen and then the boys decided to build a sand castle together which is of course very sweet. Yeah but they're definitely a bit of backlash from this. You had several newspaper editors from southern states that wrote to shoulder demanding that he stop using the character or at the very least that he avoids showing Franklin in school with the other white characters which is just mind boggling to think about but his response was pretty straightforward. So here's what. He told an interviewer years later about the incident. I never paid any attention to those things. And I remember telling United Features President Larry Rudman at the time about Franklin. He wanted me to change it and we talked about it for a long while on the phone and I finally only side and I said well Larry. Let's put it this way either. You print it just the way I draw it or I quit. How's that so that's the way it ended? I mean that is so awesome awesome. And it's nice to hear that. Despite whatever reservations he might have had at the beginning scholtz alternately went to bat for Franklin this really big way. Yeah and you know I know. We wanted to talk about an earlier occasion. Schultz butted heads with upper management. And this time about what this trip should be called but before we get into that. Let's take a quick break. The part time genius listeners. I know I've mentioned this before. I am a long time. Subaru driver I think for most of the past couple of decades have driven only Subaru. That's amazing to think about this and also to learn more about the company.

You're listening to part time genius and we're talking about cartoonist. Charles Schulz and his beloved peanuts comicstrip so to be clear. There was one thing that she'll definitely did not love about his own strip. And that was the title so back in nineteen fifty when he first pitched the Strip to be carried by the United Features Syndicate Schultz. Insisted the title should be little folks six maybe wasn't the most creative title but it does seem somewhat fitting if you think about how so many of his characters they read like these. He's little kids with grownup type worries and like they're plagued by this level of anxiety and almost neurosis that's typically reserved for adults whether's there's fitting or not the executives had different problem with it so there was already a strip called little folks exam with the word little all spelled out instead of little like L.. Right right and then there was also a little abner the comic strips so they worry that readers might confuse the titles or or worse at the creators of the rival strips might sue them for copyright infringement independent so instead the production manager the syndicate decided to call the Strip peanuts and I guess this was a reference to the Howdy doody show that was pretty popular at the time. Hi I'm Wendy Kim Two tapings. They sat in the peanut gallery so the production managers thought. You know like he'd riff off that idea and just called the small kids. Peanuts do like that. Their solution to to not being sued was to rip off. TV show instead either. I know the other theories that they thought little folks was a week title but they didn't want to upset shot's not that he wasn't upset anyway in one thousand nine hundred seven interview he was still angry about the peanuts style and he said quote. It's totally ridiculous. Has No meaning is simply confusing and has no dignity and I think my humor has dignity. He never got to change the name but of course was once the Strip took off he was kinda stuck with the title. And what's finding is that shows actually avoided using the title himself. He claimed that whenever someone asked him what he did for a living he would just tell them. I draw comic Strip with snoopy in it Charlie Brown and his dog. Whatever you call it? There's no question that Schultz's comic doc was a runaway. Hit once this trip gained a little bit of steam so it was published in just seven. US newspapers when it debuted back in October of nineteen fifty will by the end of. It's fifty year run in two thousand. The comic was being translated in over. Twenty different languages published in seventy five different countries and had grown it's global readership to a staggering during three hundred and fifty five million people so in total over fifteen thousand daily strips and twenty five hundred Sunday strips were produced all written an ink and lettered by Charles. Scholz himself I mean it was this unprecedented run and actually so unprecedented that the media scholar Robert Thompson wants called the fifty ear story of Charlie Brown and his pals arguably the longest told story by a single artist in human history. I mean that's really incredible to think about. So what do you think made it. Click with people for such a long time. Well I think a big part of it goes back to something that we mentioned at the top of the show which is the way this trip really found this middle ground in terms of tone. I mean it was funny and sometimes sweep but there was always kind of this prickly world-weary feeling underlying the humor there and as it turns out this was all by design so Schultz believed that happiness in humor. Didn't really mix which is of course why Charlie Brown never does get got to kick that. Football Schultz also dealt with bouts of depression in his own life and one way he found relief by channeling his anxieties directly into his art which makes a lot of sense and the result is a strip with his somewhat. Despairing worldview and one we're Schultz once explained. Here's what he said about. He said all the love unrequited all the baseball games or lost all the test. Scores Are D. minuses. The Great Pumpkin never comes and the football is always pulled away. Way like when you describe it really does. Yeah it's funny about shows like completely stuck to that formula for the strips entire run. Just things did get a little cheerier in the mid late. Sixties wants the. TV's special started like an and That merchandising really kicked into high gear. I've actually heard that most fans use as the rises. snoopy and pop culture is kind of turning point in the strips. Run and You know there's this first decade or so where snoopy's more or less normal dog and the strap he walks awesome forelegs he. He doesn't communicate through thought balloons and he doesn't even have a clear owner in the straps like much less tricked out doghouse and weirdly. This also also the period where the human characters were. What the creator of little admiral called good mean little bastards eager to hurt one another? As the sixties dawn shields began to capitalize on his creation with licensing deals and product tie INS which caused that public perception of peanuts to shift and suddenly the characters were seen as much sweeter and kinder kinder than the strips had ever really been and while the newer strips never really lost their edge completely and Charlie Brown remained the world's you know punching bag snoopy did begin to take take on more and more of the limelight and as this happened the character became less and less like a real dog by the late sixties. snoopy was walking on two legs. He composing love letters with a typewriter his doghouse also spending a lot less time around the human characters and instead he was either hanging out with his new animal friends like Woodstock or where he was off by himself. Sort of waging these imaginary wars against the villainous red baron in other words things took a much Zanier turn and lots of peanuts offense kind of think of that as when the strip kind of jumped the shark. Some people must have liked these changes though right because snoopy never became a normal dog again so it feels like something something must have been working. Yeah so some readers thought the new snoopy was a breath of fresh air especially in contrast to how bleak the kids could be sometimes and that really does make sense when you think about how other characters never really react. SNOOPY's changes you know he. He suddenly has this whole inner world. That's generally much more positive and upbeat than that of the kids. But they still kinda just treat them like a regular dog which is interesting because I wonder what such a sharp turn and characterizations says about what was going on you know for Schultz at the time like in his own life. And you know. Get this new freewheeling snoopy who was supposedly the person or the character I guess Schultz always wanted to be you know somebody who is is adventurous and carefree instead of being bogged down by doubt and worry all the time. And so you think about this time in his life. And maybe by the sixties sixties and seventies you know all this fame and fortune that Schultz finally made made him feel like that kind of person. I guess he was happier in his personal life. It wouldn't make sense that he might want to revel in that feeling and focus more on snoopy yeah. I think there's probably some truth to that. But for many fans perspectives the new snoopy and by extension. The new shorts were nothing to celebrate this. All the slicker flashier snoopy. As kind of like hard proof that Schultz who's now this millionaire cartoonist had kind of lost touch touch with those insecurities that had made Charlie Brown so relatable in the first place so the Atlantic actually did an article on this and they subbed up. Feeling this way quote. There was something I think. Fundamentally rotten about the new snoopy who's charm was based on his total lack of concern about what others thought of him. His confidence his breezy sense that the world may be falling apart part but one can still dance on was worse than irritating it was morally bankrupt. Two legged snoopy with his heirs fantasies. PEERLESS snoopy rich. snoopy be popular. Snoopy world-famous newbie contented snoopy. That's spoiled everything could Lord. I mean so over thought on the one hand hand but I mean I guess I get what they're saying but it still feels pretty harsh to pin all of that on snoopy. And when you think about the strips where snoopy's imagining all of these wild eld kind of high flying adventures. They usually end with a reality bursting as bubble in some way and all of a sudden snoopy feels cold. So we're back on top of his doghouse and sure sure desert or wherever but I don't know things like that always made me feel like snoopy's flights of fancy where they were really just another coping mechanism for how tough life can be. That was like lionesses blanket. Or Lucy's hot temper but I don't know there just seems like such a harsh reaction and you think about this. snoopy would talk a good game but at the end of the day. He's just Apopka so I don't know to me. There's something endearing about that. Yeah I mean I agree with that and I think shows would as well in one thousand nine hundred nine. He was being interviewed on the tonight show just as he was announcing his retirement and he observed that quote. snoopy likes to think that he's Independent. Dog who does all all these things and leads his own life but he always makes sure that you'd never gets too far from that. Suffered Ish all right well. Now that we've talked a little more about the unique tone own and mood of the peanuts strips. What do you say we take a look at how that translated into all those TV specials definitely first?

Maybe a dedicated episode just to that. But it's actually not the only unusual unusual title. I mean there's some other chestnuts in the mix like someday you'll find her. Charlie Brown which sounds a little bleak and my personal favorite. Why Charlie Brown? Why why why indeed? That's that's a crazy title. Well I think because money mango I mean the first peanuts special was such a giant ratings hip for. CBS Network immediately commissioned four more specials and obviously many more to follow that which is fair enough. But I think for everyone's sake which probably just stick to a special that people have actually seen so. Why don't we talk a little bit about the one that people will be watching the million time in the next few weeks which is nine hundred sixty fifty five the Charlie Brown Christmas sense? What do you want to say I about well? How about the fact is nobody involved in the special thought it was actually going to work? And it's actually hard to imagine in this now but there are a lot of factors working against it while it was in production and a lot of those actually stemmed from controversial choices that Schulz himself insisted on on like what so for starters shows insisted that the peanuts kids be voiced by real children and this meant the crew will be working with mostly non professionals many of whom we're too young to memorize their lines or even to read in some cases so most of the child actors had to have their lines fed to them a few words. At a time it was all done by that long-suffering suffering director and and the voice of snoopy Bill Melendez. I mean just hearing that does make me realize that in the specials the voices do sound a little choppy. You like the way. Kids talk is an exactly seamless. Yeah I mean there's not a lot of rhythm to the senses and if you listen close enough you can actually hear the seams between the words where like different from parts of the line were stitched together and post yeah but these untrained actors were just the first of many notes that ended up jeopardizing the project and these were all coming from Scholtz. So and other shakeup came when Schultz refused to let the network use a laugh track to I guess Kinda cute the viewers on the jokes which is so strange because it is hard to imagine adjutant now with a laugh track. Yeah I guess laugh tracks were common practice at the time even in cartoons like the flintstones obviously relied on I think the the jetsons to Lee Mendelson mentioned the idea to Scholtz the artists simply got up and left the room and then a few minutes later shows came back and carried on the conversation. Shen as if nothing had happened does sound a little bit like George Costanza tactic pretty funny. Yeah totally and I guess. Mendelssohn read between in lines on that Never brought up the laugh track again. Wow what about some of the heavier stuff in special like the commercialization of Christmas and that scene where linus reads from the Bible like with Schultz behind those kinds of decisions to yeah definitely really important to him that the special explore what he called the true meaning of Christmas which is why Linus. Ns reads the story of Jesus's birth straight from the gospel of Luke and this was a super risky move at the time because according to the Atlantic less than nine percent of Christmas episodes Assoc- specials from the era contain any religious references of any kind much less direct quotes from scripture so surprisingly. CBS didn't object to this inclusion. And neither did Coca Cola. who was the sponsor the producer though was super nervous and he told shows that no enemy character had ever read from the Bible before which was is all the more reason to Schultz and he told Mendelssohn well? If we don't do it who will I mean. I guess that's true but that was still a pretty big gamble at the time I mean. CBS listen coke must have really liked what they saw they let the reference pass without you know much more scrutiny. Yeah I mean you'd think so. But this executive from Cokes Ad Agency actually visit the crew halfway through production and he said the special was shaping up to be a total disaster and CBS thought the same thing when they screened like this early cut of it just a few weeks before for the premiere they said there was too little action that the whole thing moved way. Too slowly and not to mention the low energy voice acting and jazzy soundtrack which they just I found grading for some reason but bill Melendez later said that the network would have scrapped the entire special except that made this commitment to coke and it was kind of too late to back out so the show went on as scheduled and to everyone's shock viewers just tuned in and drove slave. I WANNA say on half of all American households rules with TV tuned in to watch the special at night was apparently fifteen million people at the time and a few months later Charles. SCHOLTZ and Lee Mendelson were on stage at the EMMYS Actually accepting the ward for outstanding children's program it was the surprise hit that no one had seen coming. And that includes Charles Schulz himself he later told Oh. TV Guide in one thousand nine hundred five the continued success of the special surprise me as much as anyone. A lot of the drawings are terrible and and of course those terrible drawings are based on his own designs. Yeah I guess. We shouldn't be too surprised that Schultz would take glass half empty approach. When Judge Ryan Work I you know for all the fanciful touches in his stories like kite eating trees and canine fighter pilots? Peanuts is really earliest trip about simple truths it's characters are vulnerable just like the Creator and all of us really and there's no grande finale or Cathartic resolution to the stories. And that's probably what makes the strips rings true to us yet. I've actually been thinking a lot this week. About a quote that Shultz gave an interview and it was actually with penthouse of all places places but he was talking about how much of his own life is wrapped up in the Strip and what he hoped to accomplish with it. And here's what he had to say about it. Of course I could grind find out daily gags but I'm not interested in simply doing gags. I'm interested in doing a strip that says something and make some comment on the important things of life and and I really think that mantra bleeds through every single one of his strips and Yeah they show us that. Life is made up of both small hard one triumphs and these bitterly felt disappointments and not always in equal measure. Either but the important thing is to pick yourself up and never stopped trying and Charles Shulz understood that and I feel like thanks to his work lots of other people including US do too definitely but before we dive into this delicious Feast of buttered toast and Jelly beans. The Tristan has prepared for us. What do you say we sneak in a quick fact off? I don't know if I can hold off but let's try. So did you know that NASA gives out an award every year called the silver snoopy. It's actually a silver pin and instead of going to astronauts it actually is the astronauts who give the awards to the staff the researchers that help support them. So this program program started in the sixties. And you're probably wondering why snoopy well. At the time NASA had just suffered the disaster with the Apollo one mission and they were looking for for something uplifting that people could really get behind and there was nothing bigger than snoopy at the time so today the pens go for about a thousand dollars on Ebay Bay and NASA claims every pin goes to space and comes back before it's handed out. Oh I really liked that. So when Charles Shulz moved away from Minnesota as an adult he never actually gave up his love of Ice Hockey so when one ice skating rink that was close to his home in California closed in the sixties he actually had one built and according to mental floss he loved the Swiss Alpine themed arena so much that he ate both breakfast and lunch there every day at it's warm warm puppy snack bar and he also used to play pick up games every week with his sons on Tuesday nights which is kind of fun. Well apparently the Charlie Brown a Halloween special had a huge impact on kids and particularly the scene. Where Charlie Brown opens his Halloween bag and finds that he's just got a bunch of rocks instead of the kids thought? This was so unfair that for years they would try to share their treats with him and so they would send bags of candy to Charles Schulz. His office care of Charlie Brown. So here's the super weird one about musician. Vince Korol who did all that jazzy music for the specials friendly one night while he was composing music for the Halloween special he decided to take a shower but when he heard a noise outside he ran down to see what it was and somehow he locked himself out of his house in the process completely naked. I don't know why he didn't have them by the only way to get back into. His house was the climate and break into his own house and of course it was called the cops on him so apparently when the police came up to this naked man breaking into his own house and asked him to identify himself. He did keep his sense of humor and he said don't don't shoot. I'm the Great Pumpkin. Of course all right. Well here's a super-quick fact about the trouble with working with kid actors so during the taping. Being of the Christmas special there was a child actress who portrayed both violet and freedom and she would get so nervous before reading each time that after she was done recording wording every single time she would throw up now. Luckily she didn't have that big of a role kid actors. Yeah well here's one that's kind of heart warming warming so we all know that Lucy loves to pull that football away from Charlie Brown just as he's about to kick it and often she says mean things right before or after like friendly I shall ask him. Don't you trust anyone anymore. Football out or shall let him know after. She's pulled it away that don't you know a women's handshake isn't bind. Find a strange bit of Legalese. There there was one moment where she let him kick the ball. And this was in one thousand nine hundred seventy as slate reports There was actually a sequence where Charlie Brown gets very ill and when Lucy. Here's that he's sick Might not come back from the hospital. She says how much he means to her and then promises to let him kick the football if he gets better and then when he does recover she lives up to a promise and holds the ball out for him but of course he slips and misses it anyway nice to know that for once she gave him a chance and I like that fact so I think you get to take home.

Well, let's burn another pit stop next Trevor Siebert on his new PC based having on our s one racing series. Then later part two with indycars Felix Rosenquist. This is race line presented by Subaru for more INFO at news on wwl wrx wrx Sti NBR's Ed Quick Subaru Dot ca this is the race line radio network. Hi this is Mario Andretti. Line Raider returns in a moment. We are Canada's National Radio Motorsport Authority. We are the race line already network I'm Eric Thomas Nice to have you with us. We got to know road racing veteran Trevor Seabird from the old players, GM and Atlantic series gigs way back in the nineteen eighty s also dabbling in cast car slash NASCAR stocks. He's got a brand new SPEC car thing happening in British Columbia for sports net six, fifty, the fan the avion are s one series for veterans and Hobbyists. That runs area twenty-seven and Oliver BC plus some oval events at Penticton speedway. So let's get. The skinny on this in part one with good friend Trevor Siebert back with us on line radio. Trevor we spent about I don't know ten minutes before we opened up the recorder here trying to figure out the last time unite converse that I said I hope to heck it's not going all the way back to the old players GM series because fans across the network remember you from that and also from Atlantic and some stockcar stuff as well. Has it been that long players GM since you and I chatted I, hope that's not the case. Is it? I hope not. Mir spoken between maybe wouldn't do some Pinta off or. Stuff for Atlantic stuff or things I've done along the way the it may have been far back. But that's okay because I get asked about that particular series to this day very often when the racetrack was one that. A lot of people's minds and it's just a funny story here and I. I, Digress because I remember the first time that you guys ran at the at the Honda Indian Toronto in eighty six and you're there with with with ron fellows in the rest of the crew and the first time you go in to turn one of the princess gates with those stock tires and the tires are Holland and I'm talking to Bobby Ray Hall he looks up at this noise and he goes holy exploitive. I've boy you guys put on one hell of a good show and everybody remembers it that way Dr Well you know the cool thing about that whole series. Of course, I mean, we had significant backing for the series with players enter him. You know the thing that I really liked about that series was that the everybody for the most part was driving exact same equipment and I mean when I say the most part and it was up a little. Bit of tuning on system suspension. But other than that the corey got given was exact same thing and it came down to the driver and a little bit of the car prep before and know and good entertainment good entertainment. Now, you're still slugging in this you got something interesting going our good friend Todd Lewis pointed me to it and I said I'm going to do a piece on this trevor because it's long overdue the the ad the on our S. Series in identical cars, two seaters. There's an element in here for stock car racing on Ovals, and on road courses there's even a sprint car element in this as well. Trevor Give us the dollar ninety, eight tour on what gave you the idea to put together this do we call it a a club series club experience? Is that accurate? It would be close I guess we'll just back up you know to it all started with with the construction of area twenty seven, which you know I'm one of the founders there and Lee Design and the engineer and the contractor of the tracks. So you know and of course, I was a ton of fun doing that and I started to think of what the heck we do with that racetrack. When it comes to comes racing as you know racing in Canada and in particular in western Canada has been been very decimated over the years where the loss of you know a lot of the you know Westwood Way back in Vancouver Indie. Racing, speedway in Calgary. So. It's burn. You know how to great little. That's now shutdown stand You know I got this crazy idea like why don't I build a purpose built car that we can do ovals and road course racing on their something that. That's pretty much anybody can drive but my whole focus was was a couple of things number one that every car would be identical and I mean identical in every way shape and form You know because it goes back to the players EMT that I I, really don't want to start series where people are racing with their wallets. There you go. You know but everybody to be in for the same Bach and have the same opportunity and so that's where it started as a bit of a crazy idea because of course, he start with one car you come up with a prototype and then you convince anybody standing within ten yards you should get involved. And so I gotTA gotTa low-lying. Fruit. Early, you know a few guys that jumped in, got some cars and and You know that's four years ago when built in track but we're up to we're up to fourteen cars now and and you know got interest in in another five or six for sure. All indications are we'll have twenty cars track by next. Year Cool. You know what we do with all those cars is we actually run to series with those we run what's what we call the challenge series and we run a cup series, basically a novice group and it says the Expert Group in and the whole reason for that again is getting back to cost you know share the car. For example I might my father who is eighty one years old was driving in the novice class you know he's sold years ago. And having a ball we've got we've got four ladies now that are running in. That that are showing some great promise to move up, and then those people wanted to get you know get into it and get. And get the experience they can move into the expert class. So it helps from that perspective you're put drivers in the same car I didn't throw a ton of horsepower out we run a GM crate engine in it at six o four crate engine, right but about four, hundred, fifty or so. then we converted over to a dry sump system for nice. Get the engine down and back and. The reason for long jetty. Well, there is Trevor Siebert part one on race line ready own as rapidly expanding BC based adding on our s one racing series more next week with part two with Sieber. Okay. Well, let's fire off another pit stop coming up entries and comments for the Subaru Race Lonnie mailbag Trivia contest. This is the race line radio network.

I k., the symbol line radio big word no gap in their DOT CA Eric at race line radio DOT. CA facebook and instagram will work as well. Race Line Radio Network three words all squished together for that one and on twitter at et race line. Okay. Let's go to the mail bag and get some entries and some comments. Donald Jeff says back in with other comment listening on sports net five, ninety, two fan in Toronto Eric I. Think Nascar should move the New Hampshire Motor speedway race to Iowa this way fans and drivers get another short track and NASCAR schedule the race at night. So fans don't get sick from the heat. They won't in July August summer's Day and seeing where New Hampshire refuses to add lights for night racing. Why Not Reward Iowa and give fans a a nighttime short-track instead, what's your take? Well, let's put it this way Nascar needs the New England Market Donald That's there's no question about that and I don't know whether moving into Iowa as much as I love short track racing in Iowa's Dandy little. We just saw the indy cars put on a great show there, and they always do they are not going to abandon the New England market, and of course, New Hampshire. Motor speedway is the number one arena for that, and of course, we just had Bob Baer the founder of that speedway in New Hampshire, die at the age of ninety one and he was a beloved individual. So I can't see NASCAR abandoning. The Track New Hampshire and go run on the short track at what's a nice idea. But I just can't see a NASCAR that Paul Anton, our good Buddy Dearborn Heights Michigan faithful listener on. K. L. W. in Windsor former price pack winner brings up a topic I have focused on before Eric and appears to me the recent rain delays of NASCAR races at least five since they returned can be attributed to my opinion to the late start times. It appears the TV networks determine these late starting times as part of their programming with a hot. Summer weather, it is not unusual. The daytime heat can result in rain events in the late afternoon. What do you think here's another entry, the Trivia contest, the two, thousand, twenty, two, Subaru wrx guys supposed to come with edit engine power he's got it down. Got It correct and way to go Paul Anton look at it. This way it is part of the TV strategy and that's is the one word answer your question Paul is Television Nascar wanted to get the. West Coast viewers three hours behind out of the morning three PM Eastern gets them to noon on the chance of larger TV audience only reason. But you're right about summer heat and humidity accumulating that can result in late day rain but TV audience revenue wins in this case once again. So get used to these late Sunday afternoon NASCAR starts. I really think they're here to stay send us a contest entries and our comments us. Eric Radio DOT CA to connect to netter facebook. Instagram Race Line Radio Network, and via twitter at E. T. race line, the qualifying question and hanging onto this one for a while the twenty twenty two Subaru wrx Sti supposed to come with added engine power, and it will how many horsepower is the next generation wrx STI projected to put out. Okay. The two, thousand, twenty, two, Subaru Rex guy come with edit engine power. How many HP is the next Gen wrx STI projected to put out. Okay. Let us set up. Another pit stop will then we'll move to part two interview with newest indycar winner fetus Felix Rosenquist there we go and why the chip Ganassi racing squad was so darn good and so fast coming out of the box. This is race line presented by Subaru for more of the be ours Ed Sports Coupe go to Subaru dot ca slash ERS ed don't you dare go anywhere there is lots more to do lots more to come. This is the race line Radio Network Lewis Allison you're listening to race line radio. US National Radio Motor Sport Authority it's our twenty eighth consecutive season on the air across. Canada, we are the race line radio network. As we mentioned last week always have a lot of Atta boys for drivers who pull off their first victories. It's an historic occasion for any driver Canadian or wherever they're from gase racing bolting under the INDYCAR gate with new. Zealand's Scott Dixon winning three in a string with his Swedish. Teammate adding affords in the second race. At the Road America doubleheader. Why did this team could asi racing have such a stellar start here's part two of our interview with Felix, Rosenquist on race line radio it's always a thrill. No matter what you're driving in any series to grab that for chequered flag isn't it? Yeah, it was really cool feeling in many ways you know first of all, it's my first win, which is fantastic in the car, which is you know one of the top series in the world motorsports I thought it was a extremely special to to do it with my number ten entity data crew Dave in in looking for this win since two, thousand fourteen and a lot of the guys on the car has been working since then on the car, for example, Ricky Davis, my crew chiefs and Barry ones or my my strategist, you know they've been working there. Everyday, to get this win was just cool to see how how special was to them as well. You know I mean if not only about the here, you know we we're working at the team and yeah, just really called Hano award major work for it though I mean you know you look at the youth movement in Indycar and it's always good for the health of the overall series when the youngsters can can get up there and challenge some of the the veteran guys but paddle made you work for this one? Didn't he? Oh Yeah. Big Time. Yeah. He came dot came down to the to. The final couple of laps and We had some really good. You know five by five actions I recall on us in a row there it was I won't allow that both me being Pado all all the crowds. Love US for sure you've got a relish fights like data especially in in single seater open wheel cars because you know as they say, they're not necessarily Tesla's Felix but when it does happen it, it's is pretty hair-raising. Stop you you. You'll like battles like that where you're going if you probably if you pardon the stockcar racing term door to door if you know what I mean. Yeah I mean that's what special with India carcass it's. Only real formula. Car. Championship. Where you can actually have some you know contact through the car. So pretty heavy and they're very sturdy. You know they're built very robustly to to be able to do that and and it happens every race and it's it's it's pretty cool that we can. We can give that kind of action in a in a former car to to the city people watching you gotta be careful though because you can bend stuff easily in those even though they are as you say built robust and sturdy if you don't do it the right way you can then stuff can't you? Exactly we wheel-to-wheel it's never really a good recipe but we'll to carbon fibre normally nothing to break too much. No you're not. We try to stay away from what? Happened does Felix Rosenquist rides a number ten NTT data or data Honda for chip Ganassi racing in the NTT indycar series This particular month is is seems kind of strange for someone like me who's been covering the the the Indian Toronto since the very first one Felix in Nineteen eighty-six, you were fifth their last year. Certainly, Dickson has had a fair share of success in Toronto and you were fifth there last year as we said, kind of odd not to be going north of the border because you know the fan base here for indycar racing is pretty big. Yeah. Toronto is is probably my favorite track on the calendar. The place I want in the lights and I just love that the city itself going there and you know street tracks have always been my strongest side I'd say in racing Iraq feel strange snowpack, Toronto and also a lot of outer street track. But yeah I'd definitely miss that fun for sure it's it's a great great event while we're talking about the schedules, the one hundred and fourth running of the Indianapolis five hundred and you just talked about that a few seconds ago you know being delayed from May to August Zach, kind of throw the game off a little bit when all of a sudden you see the goal line. Can Restart Prep for India all. We're not going to get a chance to do that until further down the line kind of make a think about it a different way I think the biggest difference from us on on the inside when when you look at technical a point of view, you know obviously the temperature might be different. It's a different time of the year. You know the wind might be different. It's just very driving the five hundred at that time of the year will feel different not only from a spectator point of view, but it will feel different than the car on those everything. So sensitive to you know hair humidity. One, yeah win and all and all that. So I think from that point of view might be different. Otherwise you know it's it's the five hundred. It's the same point. Drivers and hopefully, it will happen trout's as well. I. I'm not thinking too much about it. It's kind of good I'm sure you mentioned responsible handling of the covid nineteen thing and end the professional way that it was done. You had almost limitless fans at road America and it's different doing these races without fans I mean I can't find a driver anywhere that I've interviewed during this pandemic that likes the idea of racing in front of empty or near empty grandstand. You really you guys really do feed off that feedback from the fans not only during the race but certainly before and afterwards in when they're not there, you really do miss it. Don't you. Do. It was funny because in the beginning of the season, I didn't think about it because we had testing we haven't had an a rating say you didn't really compare it too much. But then at Road America when we had the chance for the first finding what when you park your car on race day, you see all the fans walking towards attract easy everyone camping and just brings another level mystery to the event that it feels like there's more state and and you're you're being watched in a different way and we really cool you know that that's why we love. So yeah, I mean obviously we know that everything has to be handled with care and Well would definitely do miss. Her double header wrote America doubleheader on the Oval at Iowa doubleheaders are still kind of odd mean you do you have done doubles before in the series certainly has doubles before even in Toronto but is is a different mindset going into weekends when you've got back to back days with back to back races Felix. For, sure, you know that you Kinda have to yourself a little bit. It's also long week and you want WanNa look up the car right but it's cold when it gets a second chance on the same week and like liking road. America I wonder how to a tough first day and then you can bounce back on the second. You know he's still the same amount of coins but it it it yeah. I like the idea of it and I think a lot of others do as well Yeah. But otherwise say same points just had to. Bring home. There's all kinds of discussions about the canopy around the cockpit. We certainly know Felix why it's there for added safety added protection Used to visually there. Yeah. There has been some discussion about the heat and the air flow in the cockpit. How have you found the injustice? The you you said it was warm in there. Do you think that's going to become an issue and do you think they maybe need to improve the airflow inside there? We're we're improving asks us, we're going on here small. Upgrades every race that we can sort of play with But the fact is when you're dealing with temperatures like an weather near body temperature, you know one, you know near like ninety seven Fahrenheit then it becomes very difficult to coup, but without having an artificial cooling fans or you know some kind of free device But yeah, you know you get to the point where it's just going to be hot. No matter what you do and the more time you spend in that environment, you just going to keep heating your body up the more and more So at some point, you just want get out there almost become claustrophobic. Certainly. Not Nice to be in there, but it it. It's part of the challenge and you know the ones who have prepared well physically during the winter or spring even you know they're they're gonNA live in the final lockstep I'm sure about the extra special to make sure you're staying hydrated in that situation, right? Yes. We can drink in the car, but it normally gets pretty hot the water But yeah, you're taking what you can get up on. Sure xactly. Felix have enjoyed this. This is long overdue and I'm glad we had a chance to spend a few minutes with you continued success. We know that first win in the second race at road. America is the start of many many more my my friends. So thank you so much for this for your fans in Canada and listen we hope to see you down the road and continued success for the rest of the season. Thanks so much. Thanks. Thanks for having me there is part to with Felix Rosenquist on race line radio since recording that they have improved the airflow. And as he talked about doubleheaders, they've added a few more because of the see nineteen pandemic. Oh by the way, seven time Nascar Cup champ Jimmy Johnson finally got his Indycar test with Ganassi on the Indianapolis Road Course in one of Felix's cars signed me up for more Johnson commented he loved all of it and team manager Mike Hall who we talked about in the interview with Felix. Very impressed with Jimmy's tested indycar start for him is on the radar for sure. Okay. Well, let's fire off at final stop. Then we're back with the last lap for next week's guest show lineup and more. This is race line presented by Subaru power to the heart pounding Garhwal Racks Sti for all things. wrx.

Love Dash. Promise I love what matters presents. Your story is a production of love what matters and iheartradio welcome to love what matters presents your story. I'm your host Colin Balfe founder of love. What matters love matters is so much more than a brand or a company to me a few years ago? My mother got sick with ovarian cancer. Eventually the chemotherapy didn't work anymore and we knew she. She had a couple of months left to live and so in those months I was very fortunate to have a chance to say goodbye to her flying a Florida and see her and with every the meeting she would basically look at me and say you're my youngest son. I know you're GonNa have a very hard time with my death. You're going to have a very hard time with my passing. I want you to take take this pain and take this grief and use it to fuel you and use it to create something beautiful. And so that's what I've tried to do with matters. I've tried to create a place where people you can share their personal stories of hope of compassion of kindness of grief and really showcase not only the pain in life but what can can come out of that pain and a lot of times. It's really beautiful. This season on love. What matters ars presents your story? I'm sitting down with some pretty remarkable and real people to hear their raw stories. We didn't have any kids like we didn't have have any children at all on Wednesday and then Thursday came in. They were like. Oh we want you to foster child and it's not like this is like a teenager or a child that knows how to care for themselves. This is a newborn like from birth. It was just like holy cow. We're GONNA take care of this baby for six months to year. We need a car seat. We need a crew. We need diapers. We need this. We need that it was so like oh my goodness this is really happening so so we were trying to process that in like thinking about like okay. Where can we go to create workers? Go to get a car seat that kind of stuff just to be able to help these birth parents out the next day they called and said Hey they want you to adopt the baby and I was just like what so now. We didn't have kids two days as ago yesterday. We had a foster child today. We have a child in literally happened overnight within a twenty four to forty eight hour. Time arm-span our whole lives changed in the blink of an eye. I'm calling valve and this is love. What matters presents your story? Sorry today. We'll bring you a story from Sadie. Who found a great reward award at the end of a long road dealing with infertility after two years trying to conceive she and her husband received a life changing call that made them parents overnight? sadie story of perseverance has really inspired me. And I hope it does the same for you. Me and my husband actually met online on this online dating website right. I had just moved to Houston three or four months prior so I was just kind of dabbling trying to meet friends stuff like that. Just because I was new to the city so we matched on there and it was like. Oh I'm glad swiped right wasn't on tinder but it was a match. The two were deeply in love. It wanted to start having having kids as soon as possible from the very beginning like my husband and I always talked about having kids and everything like that. You know. That's what you do. You follow them. Oh you get married. You have kids best routine in October of two thousand seventeen. I got my birth control taken out because I had heard that it takes a few months for a woman's his body to get back to normal after birth control and I have been on birth control consecutively for four years so I was trying to just get ready for after the wedding so that that we could start trying like right away. I got the birth control taken out in October and then every month from them. We're just kinda trying you know tracking that kind of thing. I had went to like my doctor to get them to run different tests. Lab work stuff like that just to see like if everything was okay and as far as data tell everything was normal they just kept saying like. Oh maybe you're not getting pregnant because of your weight. So they encouraged me to you know work out stuff like that and I've always has been super active like I was an athlete in high school and Middle School. That kind of thing. I've just always been on the larger side so that was mainly the thing that they were telling me was like. Oh if you lose lose weight you'll get pregnant right away. CD had a choice to make for me. It was like I have family history of diabetes and things like that and it's always been super important to me not to pass that kind of thing onto my kids and I mean even if I didn't they didn't have it like you know like it's still a possibility but I wanted to just do everything I could to be healthy enough to raise kids. Keep up with my kids that kind of thing so I mean. I had tried everything I was going to the gym regularly. I was eating right and I just just wasn't losing as much weight and it wasn't. It's not really the wait for me because I embraced by positively and everything like that but it was more of. I'm not getting pregnant and it's because of my weight so I was trying to do everything that could so when I found out that my health insurance covered the surgery than I was on it right away like from the very beginning so in February of Twenty nineteen. I had gastric bypass surgery. which is weight loss surgery where they remove about seventy five percent of your stomach so that way you physically can't eat as much as you used to so? I had that surgery in February of Twenty nineteen and within the first month I had already lost like thirty pounds. Wants and I'm down a total of eighty right now oozing. An excessive amount of weight can change a person's fertility. But when you have a weight loss surgery like CD did doctors. I will say to wait a year to a year and a half before trying to conceive but CD didn't WanNa wait. She wanted to get pregnant but even with her surgery. It just just wasn't happening they call it a peo- a s added which is a pianist. Stick addict because like you get so obsessed with wanting to to get pregnant that you are literally taking a test every day like oh my cycles lake. Maybe I'm pregnant but everybody knows that it could be it. Could be a number of things and and then like when you're trying to get pregnant because you know when you ovulate you can start testing like twelve days after ovulation which is way before your miss period so so I was like obsessed in like taking tests regularly like I was taking tests with me to work so I could take a test at work in every time like I would take her tests it was negative and there was at one point where I had swore Assad line on the test and me and my husband like we're like okay. We're GONNA get excited because we don't know if this is real and then the second. We started getting excited was Maasai cocaine and I had went to the emergency room and everything and they were like. Oh it looks like you had an early miscarriage. was that kind of thing. But they wouldn't really say like if I was pregnant or not because they hadn't been able to test me for pregnancy at the beginning so it was like we ended up grieving miscarriage that we ended up finding out later on that I wasn't actually pregnant. So it's like you have line is like you WanNa see a positive line on a test so bad that you stare at it and you stare they are added until you see the line more with Sadie after a quick break.

Love Dash Promise I'm calling Balfe. Welcome back to love. Love what matters city went back to her. Obgyn who referred her to till it specialists. They ran tests on me and found out that like I was fine in completely an an they test on my husband and found out that we actually had male factor infertility. That's not something that we talk about a lot just because it's kind of personal. Oh but they told us basically like our options were to either adopt or do IVF and like the cost of IBM. It's like eighteen thousand plus each cycle. So it's like a huge expense and you don't know if you're actually going to get pregnant once we found out like that was our option. Oh the cost is way too expensive for. IVF cost is way too expensive for adoption. Maybe we're just meant to be godparents like we have two daughters and I was like well. Maybe that's we're supposed to do may were supposed to be ants to our nieces and I've always been really go. Kids time with my husband. Maybe we were literally just put on this earth to help other people take care of their kids and we just gave up. I mean it was hard but at the same time it was like a stress reliever because we had been spending so much time being obsessed with trying to get pregnant trying to get pregnant traffic pregnant that it was just taken a toll on us as individuals. It's not so much as on our relationship but just us individuals like me not feeling worthy him. Not Feeling worthy like. Why is this happening for me? So it was becoming like a thing where our whole lives were revolved around date so we were just like you know what I think is just time we take a step back in whenever something supposed to work out for us than it'll happen whenever we least least expected. It was late Wednesday night. CDs Family was preparing to go on a four day cruise to Mexico. But CD wasn't joining both she. And Jarvis Service had just started. New Jobs couldn't get off work but CDS. Little sister had forgotten her life jacket and see what the drop it off. That's when Zaid's best friend friend texted her she said Hey. Would you ever be interested in fostering or adopting a baby and I was like well. Yeah of course but the the cost for that is so expensive I was like. I don't know how anybody could actually afford that like. I'm twenty three. I don't have fifty thousand dollars just sitting around for Friday right so I just told her like yeah would but. I don't think that it's a realistic situation. And she kind of just told me like hey will I may have some. I may know of a couple. Oh that's looking to place baby up for foster care or for adoption in. I told them that I thought that you would be fit. And I was like okay and it was Kinda just I kind of blew it off because I was like. There's no way in heck that this is just GonNa fall out. The Sky. CD Jarvis discussed the idea of fostering the child and agreed we do it. They were worried about getting attached but at the end of the day they wanted to help a child in need so then we told them yeah. We'll foster the baby. Then the next they called back and said the birth parents have decided that they want you guys to adopt the baby instead and we were like what and I'm at work like literally in training in this class where I'm supposed to be learning computer systems and things so I'm sitting there and I get this phone call and I walk out into the hallway and I'm standing on the third floor. Where like all the like? CEO's and stuff are and I'm standing there in this social worker is telling me like they want you to adopt the baby. They have made it. Click to me. was she say you need to spend the weekend and start getting stuff together and I was like what do you mean she was like. You need a car seat. And why a car seat are you serious yesterday or the day before yesterday. I didn't even know anything about a baby after for almost two years of trying to have a baby. seedy Jarvis were finally being offered the chance to be parents. He was already a week and a half old At this point so he had already been born. It wasn't like we had a lot of time to prepare like most people when they adopt they find out while the birth parents are still pregnant but we found out way after after the fact it just happened so fast and it just came totally out the blue so I was in the hallway at work on the floor like literally I had slid down the wall and I was sitting sitting on the floor. Like sprawled out. Basically on the phone with the caseworker and then I had to hang up with her and called my husband and try to explain to him. And I'm like I wish I would have just called you on three way because I don't even I feel like I'm missing stuff. I don't know if I'm giving you all the information. It was just very overwhelming keeper world. Walking past me looking at me like I was crazy for sitting on a hospital floor and I was. It's just like there's some crazy stuff going on this phone. It was exciting. I was trying not to get too excited. Just because I didn't know they were going to change their minds or if it was even real but the birth parents didn't change their mind that next Tuesday. CDN Jarvis signed the paperwork at ten am directly after they went to go meet their son and for the very first time his name was Ezra more with Sadie after a quick break. The Subaru Love Promises.

I'll be sharing real stories of love and compassion from real people all over the country. Listen and subscribe on the iheartradio APP apple podcasts. Or wherever you listen to podcasts. Welcome back to love what matters. Let's dive back into CDs story since Ezra was born seven weeks early. He was kept in the newborn intensive care unit. So we walked in the nick. You and the nurse stopped us at the dorm. was like first of all. Who are you and we were like? Oh we're his parents and they were like. Oh okay well wash your hands and then come in and sit down so we walked in and we sat down and I just looked at him and was just like oh my goodness like this. This is a real baby. It wasn't until I held him and then the nurse said okay. Ezra here's your mommy and I was just like Oh my goodness is this is real. This is real life like I have a baby all of a sudden so much emotion just came over us so quickly and like right before we knew it. We were taking pictures taken. Our first family photo was just like it was just really unbelievable. Just like us trying to tell our families like like. Oh by the way your grandma or uncle or an aunt like just overnight was really crazy since both CD and Jarvis had started new jobs jobs they were able to take any time off while Ezra state in the Nicu but that didn't stop either of them. Every moment they weren't at work they were at the hospital with their son. So I would just go up there every single day and my husband would go up there every day before he went to work he worked night shift. Sometimes we will be there together sometimes sounds it will be just one of us. One day. My mom came with me. One day. His sister went with him so we were just it was part of our routine like we woke up. went to work went to the Nikki. That was just what we were doing every day during that time. Little Ezra was growing stronger. Me and Jarvis had went up to the Nick Queue to see him and we walked in washed. Our hands and my husband was taking forever to wash his hands so I just left him at the sink in Iran and went to the baby and I looked down at him and I I saw this red mark on his left cheek and I was like what is this on his face. For some reason I was thinking that somebody had done something to him like pinched him too to hard or something like that so I immediately like jump into mommy mode like defensive and I said what. The heck is my son's face and then I looked at him again. I said Aw. Oh his feeding tube is out all my goodness so it went for. Mike May Ready to fight these people to. Oh my gosh. Like he's doing really good. He's eating on his own. So I went like from literally thing the Black Panther to Cinderella like overnight. This amazing thing happened with CD Jarvis but but you know not all families awake and that is the case with this family CD and her husband are African American and their son. Ezra is white for the most part everything has been super positive. I have had some like negative comments coming from like the African American community saying. Oh there's so many African American your kids in the system. How could you adopt a Caucasian baby? People don't understand how adoption works. It's not like a grocery store how you walk and you say I want at this this this and this because I think TV portrays it as like an orphanage where you walk in. You're like I want that one Mike how you do when you go look for puppy. You're like I want that one. But it's not the case as at all it's like if you really WanNa adopt a child like you get you can have preferences but it makes it a little harder. So people think that we hand selected this child but it wasn't like you bet but majority of the stuff that we've gotten has been nothing but positively CD and Jarvis's journey happy ending but CD knows her and her family story story isn't the same for everyone. It's a long process amby tedious. It doesn't happen for everybody. It happened for us. It happened for us out. The blue there are people people out there that are going through the adoption process and have been going at it for months or years so I just say like don't give up just keep going at it there's people out there that love you and that are supporting you in. That are going to the same thing. There's just some people that just don't know how to say it or don't want to talk about it out loud suggests hang tough because once you get that at baby once you get what you've been waiting for so long it's GonNa be one hundred times worth it.

While I've been stuck inside. I've been calling people who can't be people who are out working right now doing jobs you've heard of and some you probably haven't Lou. Hi It's Laura from Lt. Hey I want I can misspell any name. So do you mind spelling it for me so my name is Jacob skull the normal age as the OB and it may sound super boring? But I am a label printer service technician so if I go around to all of our local warehouses you know Amazon and pharmaceutical and medical companies. I go every week to a company that does arenavirus tests and shipping them out all over the country. Try I go in. And if things aren't printing right I figure out why or replace parts but my main job is just going through and cleaning everything to make sure it's still working correctly. How these last few weeks been for you. So it's it's interesting. I mean the only technicians actually leaving our office now because most places are closed down or not accepting visitors but I go to our customers. That are mission critical. I guess you could say. Are you worried for your own health? A little bit. Obviously everyone's a little freaked out but we've had to just kinda work like nothing's happening it's kind of crazy. I mean I'm just a trainer repair guy but it's I'm realizing how many people you know. They say essential workers how many people really are essential to keep the world running. It's weird to think that me going through it and wiping down at printer with some rubbing alcohol can help save lives. Anybody you WANNA give a shout out to. I think to me it's all the carriers and delivery drivers Fedex and you guys were male carriers. They're probably in more danger than a lot of people especially because they're touching everything Hello Hey it's Laura from every little thing high flora. I'm Megan and I deliver packages. Where am I finding you today? I am in Massachusetts Salem. What have you been delivering a lot of paper and Cape Cowl a lot of furniture being delivered? Everyone in a matter of a couple of weeks turned their home into an office I had a couple easels already today. He's he's old when you're delivering an Easel. Are you like understand their stuff? I'm also like Goddamn this have what's Morale Lake with you and your co workers I would say it's kind of low over also like we kind of have our own bartering systems like someone will bring in hand sanitizer and you give them gloves for. Yeah my friend She's been collecting bath and body. Hand sanitizer for years. So it's like got sparkles in it but I think it works. Now is now. Her moment she gave him. I gave her some Lysol Bites. Who I've down here. This is Kinda funny but also feels really sad to me it is. I mean you know management's doing what they can but there's nothing anywhere so we're all stepping in and helping out you know. Someone is boxing gloves at a store. They buy an extra box for the rest of us. You know but it's tough especially like in the morning when raw picking up our packages and stuff for the day and all they co workers are all talking to each other like I always leave the office and just have a panic attack like many like panic attack where we're just 'cause we feed on each other stress about being outside. Does it feel like you were? You've been drafted. It feels like every morning like I'm going into war. Does it yeah? It does that level of stress that is always there. 'cause you're outside and you're touching things all day and you have access to think constantly so your hand sanitizer. It's just training. I don't know how to explain it. It's like I don't know when I've messed up. Did I touched my face. Where can I go to wash? My hands is perfect and then like I got home and just exhausted like I'll work on normal a normal eight hour day. We'll feel like a thirteen hour day and then like today. I'm working ten hour day as going to feel it even longer than that. How do you feel about being out there? I slow inbetween. This is stupid. Why about here? I feel like I should be home. We should all be home to like. I have a lot of pride because it does stop. People need like I'm out here so the less people that need to be out here. You know need delivering. A package is better than everyone leaving their homes to go. Go Go to the store and get stuff but it's a sacrifice for you. Yeah yeah on. It does feel like a sacrifice but I feel better when I don't see as people outside. What can people do like people who are getting packages delivered? Like what can we do to make your life better? I think you have extra hand. Sanitizer like especially portable bottles loves. Maybe a snack too because a lot of the restaurants and stuff we eat a close. Yeah sealed snacks. That can be sanitized. Opinion I really appreciate you making time to chat right before a ten hour day. It'll be along but thank you for calling. Thank you for thinking of us. Thank you for doing what you're doing really look. I hope that you know it's one on behalf of any you know Hello Hey this is far from every little thing is. It really isn't happening. I can't believe it. Hi My name is Anne. And I'M A bus driver in Washington. Are you guys are still in service? Oh yeah definitely were Was a large reduction of ridership. But yeah like there's people that rely on the bus so I'm not really worried about my job at all actually have more work because alive. Divers are calling in so like when there were thirteen hours and yesterday I worked fifteen hours. They're gonNA break today to talk with you. How are you feeling right now? Like what is your mental state So I don't know so we yesterday last night as I was going out for my last bit of work We found out that one of our drivers passed away from the virus. I God I only knew the guy impasse things but that could have just as easily been me like you. You have so. It's like super shocking. So today has kind of been like I feel like I'm on a knife edge between. Oh this is completely fine. It's going to blow over and maybe I should grow a huge long beard and go live in the mountains by myself. You know. I'm so sorry yeah so I don't know how to feel to feel. I'm sorry no I I have no idea how to feel. Yeah Hey this is far from every little thing high flora. My Name is Lucy. I'm so I work at a pharmacy in Cortlandt. Are People still coming into the store? People are still coming into the store. We're really trying to push for chest. Delivery and pickup by corporate keeps sending US things about you know wearing this all together. We're year supporting our customers. And they need us to be president and calm but it's like how do you be present and calm with someone when you're worried that you're getting sick or that you're gonNa make them sick just all? Those decisions are coming from people who work in offices it just you feel so disposable. I mean I can't really lose my job but also I don't really WANNA lose my lungs either so What about with the customers? What's it like in the store honestly? It's really hard to be polite to people when they say they're just browsing. It's just so frustrating even people who are coming in and saying thank you for being here. I just want to tell them like. We'll you're welcome but if you weren't here I wouldn't be. I could be at home safe with my family but you needed to come out and buy a single bottle of calcium. What's the stupidest thing someone bar recently? A scarf so annoyed and she really didn't seem like she wanted to buy it. She's wearing it around the store conflict. You have to buy that. Now it's been around your neck by your face. You have to buy that or is this like a bottle of foundation. You'RE GONNA be your house for weeks. No one's going to even see your side. I really am grateful that you're making this show. You know like I think when I called my fat message. I think I probably sounded like cried as I was relieved at my wit's end and and so it was really Cathartic. Leave the message. You can use our help line for that anytime anytime you need to scream into the void. A three three ring. Yeltsi thank you. I'm pulling next time I call. It can be about something fun in stupid. I am looking forward to that day too. I have to say I. Who were you grateful to right now. Every parent who now has to become a teacher. All of a sudden and teachers always always teachers. This is Marsha. Hey it's floor from every little thing that's why that's sounds like a recording. I'm a living person it's wild it's nice to hear from you. Tamasha MEDEA and I'm a fifth grade teacher and South King County in Washington State. Okay so you. You're in a hot spot. Yeah I feel like you guys are sort of living in the future there. Yes March twelve was the day that we close squad for cove in nineteen but we kind of had like an idea that it would happen on the eleventh and so we all just like ran for the to copiers in the school and like made as many packets to send home with kids as possible. Do you feel like you have a different responsibility to your students right now. Or what is your responsibility to your students right now. Yeah I don't know I think really I feel more responsible. Honest to my students parents I teach fifth grade. So fifth graders are zillion. I'm really concerned about the parents And just making sure like a lot of the parents were like. I don't know how to explain this math. I don't know where to get more packets if my kid finishes the package but also there's just this obvious like stark equity issue of like so. Many of our students don't have Internet were don't have devices or don't have enough data on their cellphone plans to be able to access their cell phones. We also just had a homeless shelter opened in our schools boundary. And so you have a lot of students that were coming from the shelter and now. I'm like candy social. Do they have access Internet and devices so even though it felt really good to like help people get set up and be a part of the solution? I also know that we're leaving behind like huge chunks of our students in that way. I feel very very trapped. Has This pandemic changed your view of your job No but I really surprised myself with much in the kids especially they were able to communicate with me. You Miss Them. Yeah I know I surprised myself. Like what do you miss? Miss being around that many young people like they are allowed to have a hard time. Not Talking talk a. Oh hiding and like so sweet. Yeah like what are the things that they do their big thing is? They're just so upset about things that are unfair and the world like they're flabbergasted by it. I remember we were talking about Racism and my students were like hold on. But why why would that happen? And they're just like really just like yelling. This is unfair to change things. I think eleven year olds because they still get to have a smaller world at their world is their family. And they're they're like we can fix it like we have wolves. We can't let kids take food out of the lunchroom. Then I'll just gets thrown away and so the kids are like unfair. We gotta fix it a lot of times. Believe in like pass around you know little signature papers like Marlon teaching and like yes. Yes off the petition. Going around the carpet. And it's you know something like stays the milk at first and They're just there's their conviction is so strong and conviction something that gives me a lot of hope getting through like something like I hope they hold onto that for all of our sakes. Yeah me too. I believe in them. I have a lot of faith in my class particular. Mike last got away. Who WOULD YOU WANNA give a shout out to a shadow of Chen's workers folks that like I realized are on the forefront and I'm just incredibly grateful for that Hi this is Justin. Hey Justin its flora from Lt High Flora. So I am a flight attendant I've been flying for about sixteen years. Okay so how has your job changed in the last few weeks It's almost like it's almost not the same job. It's it's very. There's a lot of Anxiety and fear greeting people is really strange to. I catch myself standing further into the Galley. I'm not as close to the door and used to invite people almost can't hear ways you're waiting for the restroom asked where they're going and I can't help but feel territorial of my space and I don't always know my co worker sitting on a junkie with them and you know or are they do. They have corona virus but there is a dramatic or they shutting viral. Things that me am. I GONNA get sick why. I don't really have a choice right now. What about the guy in Rhode Shoe that was hacking? Maybe he just has to your key and he's going to visit a family member or maybe my hunches rave and so I should just stay over here and this constant like mental mathematics or something in your head. That's really so much it is and we feel like I feel like I should say When we're at work if we're not on we might unravel a little bit. What do you mean by on Like I mean I keep my uniforms and indifferent closets and my regular closing always have because I think. Psychologically there's a piece of that job that you have to go into a different space in your head to stay on on stage kind of you know you're like a character and if I let myself get you far out of that role than the Ben I think. My fear is is palatable and anger. I worry that it could be visible. I don't want the customers to see that or my crew members. How will this change you? I think not taking the comfort of my surroundings for granted. Okay when you put hand sanitizer on then. You put gloves on and ties gloves. It's like I don't know like it's just it's crazy. It makes us like my home. Feel safe okay so like been narrating down into these like books about virology because my place to go and I'm anxious is education. I want to know everything about it. I want to take the mystery away. So it's not scary and it's working a little bit but I was looking at how long things survive and I come home and I think okay. Most of my services are probably good but the last three nights rain hotel rooms. And I don't know whether to call and I only have so many handy wipes you know. I keep thinking that like I won't take for granted giving my friend a hug. It's funny that you knew that. That makes me emotional. Because I. I think that's normally where I would go is not taking for granted. I haven't been able to have one really since I came back. And when I'm at work The only really the only social really get is with the very people that I'm afraid of so when I'm home I'm here and kind of walked in my my box. I come home. I'm supposed to follow the rules. And nightime land starts all over again because every time you get on a plane you'd have to start the exact again exactly. I don't have fourteen days. I don't even have seven days. You know so if I'm to abide by this physical distance I won't see my friends for months and facetime with my friends down the street once but I literally haven't seen anybody in over a week and it's like I put out of my mind because that was one of the hardest things I'm giving you a virtual hug right. Now thank you. I'm holding onto long. Thank you for. Thank you for doing what you do. Oh well is a privilege and it really is. I love my job and And everybody has been flora so sweet customers have been so lovely.

Delivery driver are so tell me how work has changed in the last couple of weeks. Has It been busy very busy? There's also a lot. More people working so forklifts pretty upbeat. Actually you send your message that you were benefiting and that felt weird Yeah so my benefit is to keep working and now that we have more employees have to us in the store on top of the lake. I'm getting to her. I'm really glad to hear that me too. That's been awhile since I've gotten taller. Which is insane. Actually that is heartening. That people are appreciating. What you're doing yeah. I'm appreciating all the appreciating so I'm not experiencing the things that a lot of people are do you feel like out of sync with other people. I don't really talk about it at all. I don't talk to my girlfriend about it. And she actually got laid off today too so I might talk less all bowl. I know there's people are seems like the majority of people are out of work and panicking Is there anyone you would want to shout out to the obvious grocery store clerks fellow? Hey It's flora for Mielke High Flora Name is Jane and I work at a traitor. Gyp Is in Columbia South Carolina. How's IT GOING It's a rollercoaster. I mean we had our busiest day that our stores ever had Friday the thirteenth. And that was. I believe the day that the president announced a state of emergency. And so that's when we started seeing like the real like hord shoppers. So we're trying to take as many precautions as we can. But it's also you know. It's hard to socially distance at a traitor. Gis have been to a trader. Joe's I know. Yeah if you didn't know this. A shopping cart is about three feet long so two shopping carts between you and everyone else. That's a hot tip. It is a helpful. Hint Guy Actually measured the carcass yesterday to be sure. What's the what's the hardest part been I mean we're all kind of resigned to the fact that we will eventually get sick kind of waiting for this thing to happen to you but not knowing when can't stop you said that at work you feel like you're a sponge. Yeah Your chest surrounded by two to look out for Mike. Loading a shelf with asparagus and have a person reaching over you wearing face masks. Can it is like being in this strange dream and it is something that you can just feel in the air things. -iety that it's constant constant. You're just kind of taking on this fear for people and you don't have to speak to anyone to know that they're scared. You know if you have someone come through your line. And they've got a cart full of eight bags of pasta and five jars of jam and has much toilet paper as they could grab. You know. They're scared obviously. They're scared the first week I was able to handle it and I didn't feel like it was Affecting me that much but it's hard not to absorb those energies. It's it's just a wild mix of emotions of I WANNA do my part and I want to help people and I want to be here to serve them in this necessary way of getting groceries to them but I also feel frustrated. That they're here. You know you you take one little cheat of like oh I just need to run to the store like I need to get out of my house but you're exposing yourself to to me and I don't necessarily have a choice about leaving my house. I can't work from home and that's why I don't like this whole like grocery store. Workers are heroes. I understand that we are necessary and important and I do think like this should awakened people to the fact that these jobs are essential and valuable but it wasn't a choice you know. It's just sort of like well. This is where I am. This is just how it shook out. Is there anyone you would wanna give a shout out to a man there? Such a chain of distribution that trader.

What considerations went into To not having the race on that weekend and ultimately why it was put on this weekend there was on his mark I would say they're obviously several things That went into it. The first is just like we think our fans have their traditions family culture for what they do on Memorial Day weekend. I think there's a lot of that that happens on Labor Day weekend. And and so we thought was probably would give our fans more flexibility if we didn't pick the holiday weekend where they may may have their own traditions. And then you know the later you get into the summer period the more. They're going to be other major events. There's going to be more complications from schools other sports and so we just felt like this was the best place to land. Would dinette did. Nbc Want that Labor Day weekend or were they okay with where you guys ended. Up and B. C.'s. Ben Terrific in this In such an interesting position you know. Virtually everything that's been canceled. I I would say postpone is looking to move into the summer or third and fourth quarters and everything that they license that they broadcast is trying to get squeezed into a much shorter period of time. So they're really trying to work through a Gordian knot of sorts but they've been helpful in this. They're going to do some of the things. We're not gonNA talk about today to help us promote all this. The rest of the series will have a terrific terrific amount of NBC broadcast coverage in the rest of the year. And as I said they're going to the five hundred will have a significant broadcast window on race day. Both days of qualifying. We'll have a broadcast window and the Grand Prix will swell. So we're delighted with those results in working with NBC. Don't want to date myself. And I'M GONNA use the term Rubik's cube and there were so many moving pieces in all of this to get to work together with the stakeholders with the tracks that changed as with NBC. In a way how much of a Rubik's cube wasn't to figure it all out. I think there've been several keys. But the first was that our priority was to have the five hundred into put it at a time far enough out that we have every reason to believe that will be a safe time from the public's perspective in terms of public health and to give our fans time to plan so we can count on them to be here in August at that was key working with NASCAR's already talked about it. They were terrific and there was just no friction in that conversation. All it was about. How do we work together to make lemonade? Lemons Nbc has been terrific as Doug already said. All the all the promoters on the entity indycar series have been terrific. And as he said. I really want to shout out. Give a shout out to our friends at mid Ohio and gateway who really helped us But at the same time I think of put themselves in a position to be successful so on and on and on and I think we should also recognize the way that the INDYCAR series teams. The owners and the drivers and the whole paddock are coming together. Everybody's behind this Roger and J FRY conducted a conference call with team owners. Today it was It was terrific. This all positively. And everybody's moving forward trying to figure out how to help each other and also the We knew that Long Beach after making a valiant effort to try to find a later date in the year. Couldn't make it happen to that. Are Missing Barber in code or did you make any efforts over the efforts. Try to find them a later date. And what eventually was the reason why they couldn't you know. Be Part of this year schedule. In the in the best of circumstances the most most normal circumstances putting together a series calendar is difficult because you have to consider all all all the things that matter starting with local considerations. Can they find a time that works for their community the case? Along beach. I think frankly you know the end. Jim Really Hoping we find a time but he had that you wanted to find a date that brought a at least a couple series together and worked in their community. There is like one week on the calender. Could work for them. And it just didn't work In the case of Barbara I think they felt there in the middle of a region with Atlanta and Birmingham and they really just didn't have options as well. We have other major races. Nascar races in that region as everybody knows so either you know we we talk. We've spoken to countless times with those promoters and just could not find the time that worked and I think that they're disappointed but understand that and are kind of resigned to it and will immediately begin working on twenty twenty will there is part one. Doug Balls Mark Miles on the rescheduling of the one hundred fourth running of the Indianapolis five hundred and moving that to August another schedule indycar shuffling on race line radio part two comes up a little later in our second guest segment.

Indianapolis Motor speedway and indy-500 President Doug Bulls at INDYCAR president and CEO Mark Miles in a recent teleconference detail. The schedule adjustments around the cove in nineteen pandemic as we get into. May We start thinking of course about the biggest race in our game. The Indianapolis five hundred anticipating a relaxing of health restrictions the one hundred and fourth edition of the brick yard. Classic has been pushed ahead August. Twenty third the road course. Run now a double header with an escort. Xfinity series on the fourth of July weekend Saint Petersburg supposed to be the season opener will now close the shortened season sometime in October. So here's part two of the teleconference with balls and miles on race. Line radio in this process of landing on the twenty third for five hundred Were you guys more so working side by side with the Landau now or is that more of a proposal where you got decided. This is where you guys were on to run it. And and they were able to accommodate. That wouldn't try to wait the influences. We're in close touch with Cambridge with. Ntt With really all of our sponsors and all these other stakeholders and there was really no pushback. Listen people in Japan people all over the World People. Running businesses and other organizations are confronted with these same the same challenges and in some senses the bigger the business As in the case with n t the more. This has had wide impact on them. So they were completely sympathetic And and supportive of this conclusion rather than than landing in that timeframe where The Olympics were in late. July early August was Moving a couple of weeks back from that essentially did I just really come down to wanting to have the five hundred far down. The schedule was as made sense to make sure that That this pandemic would hopefully be completely cleared up by then because it didn't seem like that there was that big open window where there was not going to be a whole lot going on at least initially with the Olympics. Having just been postponed I suppose that they is is sort of the key thing that in a sense while being in the summer giving our fans time to plan the further away from today the better I think that was that was a keen. Thank you I have one for mark and one for Doug I'll start with mark The the news about Saint Petersburg essentially being reinstated Just if you could just give us the overview on that When you think it might be able to happen What changed from when the mayor both said that it would be very very difficult because the record and takes weeks to reconstruct and why it makes sense now as a championship in our well. We've been in constant contact with our promoter at Green savary and with the mayor the mayor of of Saint Petersburg at least twice in the last Supposed three days and the one thing I'll say about him is he's an Indycar Fan. And he's a true believer in the value of the race at Saint Petersburg to his community and so once we I mean they just never gave up and they're making some some arrangements that make it more feasible logistically. I think they'll probably try to keep up some of their stands and and and not have to completely reset as I thought they might have had to and so I think that the key was their persistence and their appreciation for what it brings them. And I think it's you know it's it's just such a superb event for us to be in the south In Florida at the to start the year the season every year is something we really look forward to and have now for a long time in this case will be doing to end the year. And then we'll be back there again In March of twenty twenty one so so we think that's pretty special they are they're up for it is in terms of the date. Obviously what we said here is that we expect to run the Laguna Seca event in late. September so we gotta get back from the West Coast I expect that in finding a date with for Saint Petersburg. It's likely to be you know the beginning of October. Maybe even a little later in October out for Doug As far as the double header goes Nascar has yet to release their finalize resumption of schedule. Obviously THEY WANNA run thirty six races. So is there any concern on your part Or have you guys discussed the potential of math car. Maybe having the shift dates and they have to be Laker that could that affect the possibility of Nascar Indycar doubleheader on July fourth weekend. We we along with NASCAR are continuing to hope that We can begin racing at some point well before the July fourth weekend event here at the Indianapolis Motor speedway. We haven't talked about a contingency plan. If we get into a point where where we have to rethink the July fourth and July fifth weekends so at this point in time we along with I think the entire country can't wait to celebrate our country's birthday on July fourth and hopefully a lot of people will be doing here with us at the Indianapolis speedway. Yeah for for Marker Doug. How much had there been? Talk about a potential double header with Grand Prix in extending poor even cup Before this started. And do you think those conversations if they had already begun helped kind of make this more of a reality? That's really good question. I don't think we not like we had a plan in place. But it's something comes up Ben. Clear for a long time that both series under the right circumstances thought it could be a good thing for the sport and for each of our our series so the spirits of always been willing but this sort of just discredited the opportunity to say. Here's an here's an opportunity. Let's go for it and as has been said There wasn't much hesitation Just to check it cemetery ticket for extending race. Is that good now for both races or ticket. Prices Changing can go and do you have any also any idea beyond just the indycar race being first before the expanding grace any other details on how that Saturday might look so right. Now we're working through these schedule For that Saturday but we do know is that Saturday's GonNa GonNa host to amazing races with the NTT any car series and the Geomar Grand Prix. And then the pennzoil one fifty which we're excited about on its own because it's the first time we've had NASCAR cars on our road course so it's going to be that's going to be a fun. Packed AFTERNOON OF ACTIVITY. Final schedules yet to be completely determined But our customers will be able to bring their ticket that they add for the GM our Grand Prix and the ticket that they add for the Indianapolis five hundred and show up at the gate. And we'RE GONNA WE'RE GONNA go racing. Hey mark another Saint Pete question given the fact that it's the only one on the revised schedule. That doesn't have a date yet. How confident are you that you guys will be able to make everything work and it will be able to be rescheduled happen well. Our confidence comes from our discussions with the the mayor and the city administration in our promoter. I don't think they've ever you know given up on it. They've looked at it as they said they've made some logistical combinations to make it Easier to do than it might otherwise for for St. Course you know that. They WANNA tend to their knitting and make sure that they take care of their people right now. But we're talking about you know early October. For example. So it's a ways off and the expectation for everybody is that it will be time to go racing again and and they are eager to do that. That would be depending on the schedule. I to do any car races here in Saint Pete and and a five or six months stand. You'd be concerned at all kind of raises the tea for for for the fancier now you know actually. I think it builds momentum and it might be that the logistical accommodations that they're designing right now between a of the rescheduled race for March to save October could be extended from October to say March and And that could make it again. Sort of more feasible more efficient. And from all the indications I have race fans down. There would just be thrilled to have us back in there. in short order Sol.

A lot of fun with Jimmy Johnson Day reflecting on your amazing career and some of your favorite moments or any moments more special than others. No it's the stock question when you you do some reflecting but are some moments more vivid in your mind than others. There's so many amazing memories. It almost would be impossible to pick just one but you know the the range from in drivers that I've built friendships relationships with the Us Tony Stewart. As an example there might teammates influence. I've I've had on guys like William Byron and Alex Bowman and Chase Eric Merola and how he felt fill in for us when we were on baby watching the doors that open forum crew guys and bicycle rides that we do on Saturdays and really across the gamut even track. It really was really special for me. Click through on on various social media platforms and and see what Cd's experiences memories and what people had to say. It was a special back Jimmy Johnson on on race. Line radio re asking some questions if a teleconference. You've had a lot of idle time during this unplanned break. Jimmy mean you're practicing a lot of SIM racing I racing. We'll get to more of that in the second any he thought to next year. Maybe doing more. Nascar racing are postponing your retirement. You've said that this would be your last fulltime. A season In Cup what about postponing that in light of what's going on here if he had an extra time off to sort of think about that. I really don't have an answer just yet i. I don't know what what's going to happen. In the coming months we'll be able to run the full season or not You know I feel like I set out to To make twenty twenty my last full time year but always left the door open for other racing and NASCAR and abroad for the future and and I feel like I'm. I'm still pretty much on that. That path you know and I am hopeful that get our full year in and we can get back going here and a month or so. Whatever the latest project number possibly could be and that I can run the season and its entirety so I just gotta speak fluid at this point. I really don't have an answer on. It's up in the air just as so much as in the world right now. That's for sure. How are you liking the extra time at home? A how you. How are you liking the The home schooling. I thought I would have much more free time. Being at home with the world changing is it has but at least the first couple of weeks as things tightened up lockdown just so busy with work very businesses that I'm involved with and the impact that this has had on all and then homeschooling was thrown in the mix Shandra has her or gallery and and the demands and workload that comes with that so it's another thing for us to focus on I I focus on but Just you're more stress in the house and let's free time around to help with home. Schooling home schooling Rockdale worlds. Were a few weeks in now and and have a much better flow going on and understand it all so. It's been a been a nice week this week. Honestly we've been able to balance things pretty well. Jimmy Johnson unraced line radio when racing resumes. Would you like to see you know weeknight racing or even maybe multiple races at one particular track like baseball's thinking about just get these races in get them done best you can when it gets back to normal? If you thought about that that at all Jimmy I really haven't I can only imagine the Balancing Act Nascar. Tv and he's trucks will need to know every weekend that goes by just complicates the situation more and more and I feel like many of our contracts and much of the structure that exists revolves around thirty six races and I would assume that that is the highest of priorities is to have those thirty six points paying events how that happens for me. I. I'm I'm totally fluid. I'm totally open. I know we're in uncharted territory here and I'll do my part in whatever I can him and certainly support whatever. Decisions are made to try to get an all thirty six rates. We saw bubba. Wallace lose his sponsor when he clicked off one of these. I races and quit And quit and we saw four not allow its drivers to do any race. Because I- racing's cars are all Chevy's how much of this is business? Jimmy and how much business work do you and your team needs to do before you can even do. One of these I- racism is supposed to be fun right. It's a game after all but a lot of seriousness has crept into this thing and I think the first race that was done it. Atlanta was much less about business and then when the TV component came in and switched to business absolutely. I mean there's Maybe not pressure from the sponsors and it's hard to say what she never situation is like but I can tell you what I feel in my own head is. How do I show value for our parts rice value for our team and our company and everybody involved in this tricky time So I just feel like there is a pressure. Were all feeling if it's self inflicted or if it's coming from the outside in but we're you know we're trying to figure out how to how to deliver for our partners in you know it's created interesting environment and everybody handles it a bit differently.

Thanks for spending some time with US snug and safe in part one seven time Nascar Cup champions Jimmy Johnson gives some and getting himself set up for not only some NAS car racing but some Indycar Sim stuff as well. So a few more teleconference re asks for Jimmy Johnson. It's part two on race. Line radio difficult for you if you're at home you know. There's there's this there's that in the background you know when you know with the television being on you know visual conflicts. How much of that is going through your head at a time? When it's supposed to be fun I mean when the television you say. The television component comes comes in it. Sorta changes all the rules. Doesn't it yet from my entry point into it was? The first race was on television. Nine new than in there that I had to treat it just instinctively knew I needed to treat a certain way and and have so i. I don't know for me in my head. It's been pretty pretty straightforward especially since. It's been on television. How how things would go. And ironically I I find that I'm trying to find ways to make sure that I'm on the broadcasts. I'm not fast enough yet to run up front for the TV time. So trying to be erased. Reporter or partisan crashes seems to be the only way. I find myself on as we mentioned earlier. You're doing both the NASCAR and the indycar racing thing. Can you compare these two? Jimmy main two distinctly different automobiles. We know you're interested in trying some indycar road racing down the road. How do you compare the two on the simulator? But you know the thing. I've really struggled with Indycar side is. I'm learning new tracks in new car. New Car sure Where the NASCAR side? It's much more familiar. It's just learning to gain component of it all So it there are different challenges that come with it. I feel like in some ways if I am able to find an opportunity indycar world a future. I'm giving up on track so that's a little rewarding and makes me feel good about the time that I'm putting in learning these drivers and it's hard to say that our and driving characteristics in symbol crossover to To the real world but there there is some kind of found foundation for groundwork being laid on that side of the door does open there for me some day and then on the NASCAR side it In the oval are much easier to drive on him and It is interesting to see the personalities kind of emerged there that are similar to the real world And I'm not sure she can hear the in-race chat stuff that's going on but it's pretty comical And learning more about my competitors there Deal with emotions from time. Seven time NASCAR Cup champion Jimmy Johnson. Back with us on race on radio talking the season being stopped by covert nineteen in his eye racing on both a Nascar and the INDYCAR side. Jimmy Twenty twenty as we. We've touched on before was supposed to be your send off. But now it's it's all on hold and you know what has been the adjustment in your thinking about everything that's going on with not only racing but you know with the world in general. We've never gone through something like this before for me in my final year in a cup car like I I feel I feel more for the fans that wanted to see at their track and experienced that and have it. I mean I I know where I am. I'm very content and fulfilled with the career. I've had ensure I want to be on track and sure I WANNA go these places of final time but of course the You know I I feel more for the fans. That aren't having that opportunity national than I than I long for myself to experience it and to be there that makes any sense or does in your own. That's only a small piece in the grand scheme of things when you look at all the individuals that are affected by the current virus. The families that it's affected economy businesses business owners. You know this this is way bigger than than me way. Bigger than what would What what was going to be my my final time at these tracks. So that stuff hasn't really even cross my mind. Why bring it up Jimmy? How much time have you spent on the simulator rig during the postponement to to get up to speed to be more competitive in this? Ira sing know. I'm probably averaging about five hours a day for seven days a week for like two two and a half weeks and I was finding those hours. Were taking place late at night. After we get kids to bed I would jump on the rig and then a lot of these coaches that are available on to help me fast-track my way in. I have day jobs and spend most of the evenings in the night. Doing doing their SIM works so I felt like I didn't sleep for two weeks honestly looking around the clock time at night on the Sim right back to I racing. How does it feel to provide a sense of normalcy to the American sports? Fan Right now with this because the sticking balls can't do it but racing can to stay engage with them which is so critical if only for a short while you know who knows when we're going back as we keep saying but what would be your message to the Nascar Fan base in both the states and Canada right now Jimmy. The viewership numbers in understand. How much from the fans are are having watching it Is motivated me in Has highly interested to keep it going and as we look around and see other sports trying to figure out how to virtually offer something for their fans You know really what the first one of the first if not the first to do it and do it well and breaking all kinds of records in the process so hats off everybody involved to have this vision and to to pull it through our partners that television side. That allowed this to happen. So what would be your message to the Fans Jimmy? We're all in this together. Let's do our part. I think the sooner we can control the curve and push things down the sooner we can find out whatever and all this when we go back to actual racing we could do and the indications are more than likely is going to happen. Do it with empty grandstands. What do you think that's going to be like? It's not the ideal situation now by any means and I I know our sport amongst every other word out there is going to be faced with that That decision if they they choose to compete with fans in the stands are not for me. It's a real simple answer. I mean there are millions it watching on television and I don't want to deprive the greater some because we can't have the The fans in the stands. And I get it. I want fans in the stands. They deserve to be. We want them there. There's an energy that comes with it. But we are in uncharted territory. And we're GONNA have to do things a little different than what we're used to. And if we can get back to the tracks months and months before because fans in the stands and provide our or to millions and get people back to work Get some normalcy going on in our country in our industry Definitely for that. Yeah I think all of us involved are definitely for that. They talked about the schedule being compact when we go back as a driver to start racing you know. They've talked about multiple races in a week. Sunday Wednesday and Sunday again. Does that upset the routine that you're used to? I mean what what are you going to do to prepare for such a hectic labor intensive schedule because it eventually is going to come to that. Yeah good good question I mean I. I personally haven't been through a race schedule like that. Think Kyle Larson Christopher Bell some of these younger guys that have grown up racing dirt or more custom to multiple venues in a weekend and cars and trucks. And all that kind of thing But for me I mean I I've You know lived through the testing era where we had unlimited testing and spent a Lotta time during the week at different tracks and moving around. And you know it's long weeks but I personally enjoy the physical challenge that went with it. The mental side was was a little different because you can only focus. You know where you were at that time so in some respects didn't give you all week to over. Think over. Prepare for what. You're going to share. Yeah it almost. Simplify things where. Hey I'm extract right now. This is where my focus seems to be taking the my notes taking him every teen do the best. I can move on Some ways it might simple fundamental aspect physically will be far more difficult And then whatever driver experiences crew chiefs crew members traveling side? Even yourself as media. I mean that's that's GonNa it's GONNA be why harder for everybody Drivers would probably have it. The the best are the easiest to will workload wise. And the rest of the industry's Really Gonna. You know back to sort out how to manage physical and mental endurance. That's going to be required will. Listen Jimmy thanks so much for this. We're all anxious to get back to the real racing stuff and we hope we do that very soon. Thanks so much for the time you'll probably have me get here. But he's voice.

Hey so I wanna take care of a little business before we get to today's question a few episodes ago we asked you to send us your favorite underused word a word that you love and the other people to love to and hundreds of you sentence emissions with the help of a dictionary editor. We narrowed them down to three choices. Regret Nibbling and distracted. Which one belongs in the dictionary? You voted and we have a winner. Hello this is Michael so Michael. I'm calling with some official news. Oh my God I hope. It's good news. The Lt listening community has voted. Are you ready for the results? I have never been more ready for anything in my life. America next top word is nibbling. I was so satisfying. Thank you so much for making sure. God thought in Dramatic Fashion. Your submission nibbling the gender neutral one word substitute for nieces and nephews. Got The most votes. How do you feel? I am so so thrilled. I mean it was great to see democracy and action. You know I watch those votes come in and and people really spoke yes. You'RE WE'RE DID SEEM TO STRIKE. A Chord Weaving voicemails about it. I was very excited to hear nearly as one of the options so when I saw this word had a chance to make it to the dictionary I knew I had to support it. Be So useful to us to stay planners people who write wills as we can say siblings But there is no such word no class word for nieces and nephews my husband and I have tons of nieces and nephews still useful to be able to say nibbling. I voted for nibbling because I am one and the Non Binary Person Nibbling feel included and accepted. Okay so Michael. We have our word. Congratulations thank you so much. Now we have to get it into the Dick Sherry now. It's time to do the work. Oh man so if you remember we consulted a professional lexicon prefer someone who has actually added words to the dictionary. And here's what she said. We have to do so. I we have to find. Every instance of nibbling used imprint ever documented. We basically need to pull together. A portfolio that proves nibbling has been around for a while. Okay so to build a really strong case this is going to be a ton of work Okay but it's not just on you. Thank God we're GonNa Asker listeners. Help to okay great listeners. If you need a distraction right now. Here's how you can help us get nibbling added to the dictionary. I we need to build that portfolio.

Okay let's get today's question it's about. How tiny humans used to stuff their tiny faces? Hi My name is Kate. I'm so interested in understanding what people did before bottle nipples did babies just died before that If they couldn't nurse directly from the source what happened there man. I have so many questions. I'm probably after Nice another phone call but thank you I. Hello Hey kate ensler. Hi how are you guys doing everybody? Okay we are everyone's healthy and set. We're good have you been isolating? We have been hard. Yeah we're just tired of each other but we're good. What about highs and lows any highs and lows from quarantine so far Highs I just the togetherness and the slower schedule. So it's Kinda great to just be Pajama People together and play board games. Okay but the lows. Don't skimp on the lows. Oh Man The lows have got to be the public home schooling. I have five kids and so y'all like since the prayers. It's it's happening but oh man. Have you sent anyone to detention yet? I almost sent a kid to out of school suspension. Only didn't know where to actually send said child so but I made my children's start calling me Mrs Watson during school time because I couldn't handle the mirror on anymore so you called back in Simpler Times. Should we take a moment to put ourselves in that mindset back when are idle thoughts were about the other kind of nursing yes let's like blur out the scene and go back to that one blurred? Okay so in your message you said you WanNa know what parents did to feed their babies before the bottle as we know it. So I was on your I'm currently nursing a have A fifteen month old but I think when I called she was well under a year and then I have several friends who are having babies as well and it made me just kind of go. What if you had a baby that would not take breast before there were bottles? What happened what did you do? It's a great question and we found just the person to answer it. Yeah Hi this is Julie done. She's an archaeologist and chemist in Bristol in the UK. Andrew is known as the Pot lady. Lady Yeah why? It's because she's a pothead. She has pot on the brain all the time. Four twenty seven. She's a stoner stoneware. Is Her thing that is Julie. So I assume we're disgusting clay pots. Correct Okay Good. Good good good. But here's the thing. Julius Holy Grail isn't the grail itself. It's what was in the grail one of the most important things. I work on his ancient diet familiar. It's learning how ordinary people lived in the past. If you think about just us today we go out for meals with our friends. And that's how we socialize but that's what people didn't in the past they might have enormous feasts may be to celebrate events so when they were still building stonehenge for example we know that people would get together and slaughter lots and lots of pigs and put the big barbecues and through lots of beer and never massive party. Because you know they just spent days weeks months building a an astonishing monument. I can totally understand the appeal of wanting to work in ancient diet as someone who spends inordinate amounts of time planning their dinner every night. This makes sense to me as an of focus. Yeah me too. So here's what truly does specifically. She chemically analyzes the residue of prehistoric cookware. I'm very intrigued by this. Yeah she looks for the molecular crumbs of Super Old Food. Basically the leftover munchies. That time forgot sweet. And this is why she's the pothead. We called to answer your question. What did people do when they couldn't breastfeed Julie just dug up the answer? Yeah so actually. Until we didn't really know the answer about what until last year yeah When I did the work we'll tell you what Julie dug up after the break. This episode of every little thing is brought to you by the all new twenty twenty Subaru outback super messages. Go where love takes you so the other day I asked Wilson a longtime Gimblett employees where love is taken him when my wife and I I met one of the first things we did together was we went on a road trip and typically you know you spend seven hours with somewhere in the car. You're completely sick of them by remember. Going to drop her off and we didn't want to stop hanging out. We're like well do you. WanNa get dinner and it was that moment that I think we realized this was something different. With eight point seven inches of ground clearance and ex MoD. The Twenty Twenty Subaru outback.

From science passes out show takes on the messy world news and Internet sites to find out. What's real what's not and what somewhere in between and the season I'll show is all about the corona virus. We're answering questions like. Should we be wearing homemade mosques? Like from t shirts all those properties that we like in our T. shirt. Make them problematic. Us As fast. Listen for free on spotify or wherever you get your podcasts dispatch for science the S. Here's how Julie the pot ladies discovery went down. A colleague tip Julia about a bunch of unusual vessels found in Europe. She said to me. Oh look have you seen as and I said well no no go to didn't even know there was such a thing. You know annoyed anyone. I know they were two to three thousand years old and they were just so unusual looking what they look like a rate so just like human beings there are a lot of different versions of these vessels and just like human beings summer cuter than others and because I know what our listeners want. I'm going to send you the cutest ones anti prepare yourself. Kate and adorable photo is waddling like a baby. Duck right to your phone. Okay and everybody else. You can see it right now on spotify an episode page. And we'll put it on instagram at. Ut Show okay. I think I just got it. Oh my goodness look like animals. I know only gorgeous often. They have the most amazing little shapes. They've got little heads and feet and the cutest little things in the world. Okay so everybody listening picture of vessel like a cop about the size of a baseball with ahead on one end. Yeah they have like a little faced kangaroo I know and then there little legs coming out of the bottom of the cup so it stands on its own and then there's a spout anything jumping out to you about the the location of the spout. Why Feel Lake? Oh is it the the tail end? I mean it's it is a little light backwards. I feel like it's clearly critters. Rear you drink from this delightful little animals but yeah. That's exactly what it is. I know but still. They obviously thought it was funny because they could have done it. The other way around I suppose but Yeah Okay so. These are adorable little handheld cops molded into the shape of animals. Which majorly and her colleagues wonder or these for babies could these be ancient baby bottles mean given the spout placement. They could also be gravy boats so Julie had to test the hypothesis so she got the vessel into the hands of a tiny product tester. My colleague Her friend a young baby and they may develop a and Put Milk and gave him and he loved it. It really fit very naturally in his hands and he wouldn't let go of used it for ages and ages and ages. Do you want to see a picture of a baby drinking from it? Absolutely I do okay. He's on thing loved it. That's solid little baby. Latch right there. He's still using it today. He's twenty eight. One other clue that they were for babies is a little bit less cute. How they were found in child grapes on c. You knew there was gonna be a sad side to all this but like still kinda sweet that they gave them their little favourite sippy when they went. Oh so you said sheets. Tested stuff like like analyzed the contents so did she do that with these exactly to seal the deal that these were really bottles. Julie had to analyze them to see what they held so like if it turned out to be. Marinara sauce that hold the baby bottles and not gravy boats thing would be cooked. Yeah 'cause I don't think they would do in melanoma back then. I'd have been very surprised yesterday. I don't think they had tomatoes right right. So Julie flies to be to look at these vessels and to sample a few of them and when she shows up she is shaking in her lab coat. Well what I do is destructive. I literally had to take modeling jail. And put inside these vessels in actually just draw enough powder to do all chemical analysis on it was quite nerve wracking because is only clay and it's thousands of years. Old is a bit of a responsibility. I was terrified. Plaza had an audience. So what do you mean an audience? Well everyone in the institute wanted to see how I saw him post to do this pretending like I did it every day. And you know look terribly professional but at the same time insiders thinking. Oh my God. If this week's envy breaks are going to see a break and I'm gonNA doughy but she didn't die because this is one pothead. Who doesn't crack under pressure when you finish? Did People Clap Memento? Actually if they didn't they should have so Julie had her little baggie of pot. She analyzed it and she got a big old hit on three of the vessels she tested. Do you WanNa guess what she found. I would hope it would be milk. Bolognese nobody term. We've found that. The puts will use the posters milk. Animal Milk so fantastic because you know you would assume The little baby vessels Were going to be used to give baby's milk so this was the last Straw. Julia was convinced these baby bottles. So what did this mention mean for people? Julia said they're not just adorable artifacts they were an innovation and they had a huge impact. Essentially these biking goals a why. We live likely due today. Julia says when these kind of vessels I show up around seven thousand years ago. There's a population boom in Europe. A boom driven by the newest Fad Locally Sourced Produce Aka agriculture. Okay so Julie's theory. And not every baby bottle. Allergist degrees is that these little vessels might have played a role in that population. Boom Julie says and I'm just slightly paraphrasing here that these bottles gave women a lactation vacation abreast. Rest meaning weaning happened earlier. And because of this nursing interspersing women got Prague's on the rigs that men at end to the birth dearth and donning the spawning less latching lead to more hatun makes perfect sons. Yeah yeah as a nursing mom if you're able to take a break if you're able to train your baby to get off of you. Then the world opens up a little bit and I bet women were getting other stuff done and get other stuff done to write and then more babies. I don't WANNA put words in Julie's mouth but basically her argument is that these baby bottles are directly responsible for all those baby and me. Oh classes I love it. That's crunchy community though. Don't bring a bottles there. So what do you think kate? Does this satisfy your thirst for baby bottle facts? Any other questions How long were these around? These were around for thousands of years. An interestingly they do really carry on throughout the history so we know there's lots of them in ancient Greece. We know the moments used very similar. Vessels I've chemical some in Africa in Sudan Somebody sent me some from plains Indian communities say the shape is I suppose it's like an optimal shape. I love fat. I love these little teeny tiny baby bottles sippy Cup kangaroo stoneware pieces and it gives me like a more hopeful picture of the past that they were just cute little babies still with all bottles. Yes you could just make little utilitarian vessels that do the job if if you choose to to the trouble of making these lovely little pots expression of love. I think maybe I should go. Chisel a little stone sippy yes is giving you any ideas yeah. I'm super quarantined right now. So what else am I doing? We go find a rock.

So it's part two of our conversation with Devlin D Frencesco on race line radio. Now, we were talking about influencers and and people that have that have been instrumental in in your success. So. Far One guy that we haven't talked about that we need to talk about is one Pablo on Toyah. He's a family friend. He's a guy that has been very, very helpful in terms of advice and what have you just just talk about one's role in your development of so one really started with me and in two thousand eighteen started to a difficult patch and you know he's been he's been immensely helpful as part of my development and steering me back on on the right path. Nice to be back. Back into fighting at the front winning races and he he really has played a huge role in the as well the twenty four hours of Daytona and the petite llamas. So there is some sports car activity in your background to be able to excel in different forms of race cars. I think is valuable asset. You you obviously you agree with that? Yeah. No Fisher I mean your sports racing definitely, very enjoyable. It's a very different kind of racing. Coming from a single seat in from A. You know a sprint race you know sort of mindset in informer three and much more about you know longevity consistency total sprint total.

We'll get that straight at et race line once again facebook and instagram race line radio network one big word and twitter at e race. Let's go to the mailbag into get some entries. Why do I always put it far away from where I am you'd think I'd know better by now wouldn't you? You think so Joe via. Twitter at et race line just talking about that. He says Joe at Sports Nut motorsports nut actually joe at motorsports nuts as I eric always enjoy your show on Tsn six ninety Montreal Sunday nights only enough one to see drivers contract not renewed midseason metal knows he won't be back with Ferrari next year. So there's no motivation. Why is it this way in f one instead of waiting until the season ends like they do In other sports. Hi Joe thanks for the note and listening Sunday nights on Tsn six, Ninety Montreal in getting in here via twitter at E. T. Race Line Joe also here's his preview the racing weekends on tsn six, ninety afternoons at Three Forty with Mitch Melnick and the weekend wrap up Monday mornings in the morning show at nine, twenty, McKenna and star. Well, in fact, Joel Sebastian Federal announced his contract was not going to be renewed with Ferrari for twenty twenty one in May of this year the. Nineteen ravaged season didn't really begin until July once they got rolling. So technically, this really wasn't season at all but I kind of know what you mean Sebastian the four-time champion was in talks with Ferrari to renew until may but then a phone call came in and he was told that Ferrari was not going to negotiate an extension of the twenty twenty one season and maybe beyond he is honoring the final year of his deal by carrying on with an obvious you want call at lame duck season you're. Right there with the red cars and maybe a lack of motivation. But yeah, you just look at it. His qualifying has been terrible results not that good at all certainly nothing we're used to seeing with him and we played you that radio transmission in the program here during the news during the Spanish pre that the team is clearly not listening to their driver in the frustration not being on the same page and all those other things we talked about are clearly still there, which is a shame though you. Know, the bottom line here joe that his Ferrari tenure is ending this way because I think that that Sebastian metal can still win races and be effective for whatever team that he latches onto next season the indication seems to be it could be racing point to run with Montreal's own land stroll. That's entirely possible. We'll have to see but yeah, it's it's not a good situation a lame duck no motivation whatever you whatever you wanNA, call it. But yeah, it's it's not a very good thing at all. In terms of of the way veterans going out here because I I really do believe that you know he is capable of of doing some good things and it's it's sad when you know the team and you, you heard the transmission in Oh, he's asking about earlier on can these tires last the stent and then there's really no response and then later on the team asks federal again if you didn't hear the Clip do you think these tires can last the standard and vessels? Well, my God I asked you that a while ago. Why are we? Why? Are we still talking about that and you know that kind of stuff shouldn't happen and it really has been the root of the reason why vessel has not you know look that good. The last couple of seasons at all and you know the team feels the same way in the reason why probably that they're not going to renew his contract and it's too bad. So we'll see where he latches on. But as I said, I still think it can be impactful still thinking can be effective i. mean you know you get people saying well, he's old and he's Washed up well, come on now you don't win one championship because you're lucky. You might a little bit which win championships because you're good and if you win four, it's not because you're lucky is because you're good and I still think even at his age which ain't that old I don't know what it is on top of my head but doesn't matter I still think he can be effective out there and hopefully you can be that way with whatever team he signs on with Sanish contest entries and comments. US Eric Race on radio DOT CA connected netter facebook. And instagram Race Line Radio Network and on twitter at T. Race Line still qualifying question you need answered correctly to have a chance at the prize twenty twenty two, Subaru wrx to reported to come without engine power how many horsepower is the next generation wrx Sgi projected to put out let's work in another pitstop will then we go one on one with Jeff Campbell developer of the earls station Racetrack Road Jack this is race lying presented by Subaru for more on the sports coupe go to Subaru dot ca slash yards ed this is the race line radio network. It's a veteran Abbas and you're listening to. Race Line Radio. Canada's National Radio Motor Sport Authority. It's our twenty eighth consecutive season here across Canada, we are the race line radio network. We have followed several proposed new track and speedway developments over the twenty eight years have been on the air just about all have failed or have stalled but I'm told this one is going to be different the new oral station development just north of Barrie Ontario north of Toronto in the Lake Simcoe region will include a sixteen turn four. Kilometer Road Course for GT vintage in club racing. So let's get some details on this with the developer of the oral station project. Let's meet Jeffrey Campbell part one on race line radio. We've got some time here. So Jeffrey again give us the five dollar tour behind the idea to put together this development year end in real estate and building homes and businesses and buildings. Tell me about why you wanted to get a racing element involved in the auto station thing. Well, the the impetus forestation station really started with my brothers and I when we were quite young, we were all passionate about cars. We all had dreams of one day racing, and so we used to banter about wouldn't it be great to have a facility like one day? And I've just been very fortunate to find an intersection between my skill set and development and my passion for motorsports and put the two of them together with Oro Station. Tell me about the location where you where you're located the oral Donte Area Lake simcoe north of bury north of Toronto I, mean why this area? So. In terms of its location, we are equidistant between Muskoka in Toronto on the highway eleven on the way up north. So we're really at the Gateway of recreation country where people going to Collingwood or Georgian Bay, Muskoka Earl effectively passing by the circuit itself. But one of the biggest challenges circuits is noise and so that is why they're often located so far away from urban centres and Berry inaccessible. Our tastes were directly underneath the flight path of the runway selects regional airport. Good. Yeah. That's that's provided. US some very good related sound uses around us and So that was where we were able to to manage to have a site that is complementary, but his is still motor sports base to the so close to the GTI. Now you're talking noises the one thing in concerns and I've had some involvement with the the attempt to build a track in. The area and there was a lot of pushback from the residents in that area, and then you had to put in your plans for you know noise berms and noise mitigation studies and things like that. Did you have to go through a similar kind of an exercise or as as you say because you're kind of in the same area as the airport you didn't get any pushback from the residents. Well. I mean we still are working through and diligently on older required engineering, and that includes sound studies as well as environmental engineering, storm water, etc. But when we are looking at the sound related impact in the region, we're on the primary gravel hall wrote, which is a big noise generator cross from the airport were just a few hundred yards, boroughs, creek, and highway eleven. And so with the gravel pits, also in that area, there are a sort of blanket. The creates a little bubble for us in terms of other noise related uses in the area But nonetheless, we've still addressed that in terms of creating reports for our site plants missions that are showing the impact of noise to ensure that we're not adversely affecting residents we are talking with Geoffrey or Geoff Campbell managing partner proposed. Oral station Racing Research and development facility just north of Barrie. Ontario on Race Line Radio, a sixteen turn four kilometer road course for gt vintage and club racing. That's at the heart of it. You and your and your brothers have been you know as you say, race fans, car fans high-performance fans for a while this this this course tell me about how this design came about and why you decided to do it this way. So in terms of design, we worked with driven international out of the UK. Um and Ben Wilshire who's the principal of that firm is a young and up and coming designer who is now part of the motivation committee. Okay. And he came out to oral to have a look at the land in which he and I walked it intimately to look at the contours of the fields looked at the layout of the property and design something that really fit into the landscape, and so we wanted to ensure that we were making the most use of the land but creating something that was fun and exciting. But our intention of going to grade three standard was that in some circuits now particularly, FAA great one right when they're designed for Formula One car, they're not so fun in the GT car feels a little bit like the highway given how big the corners are. To, be something that was exciting in some of the older cars and then some of the GT cars. but from a challenge perspective, we'd also designed it that as amateur drivers are on the circuit, it's something that will be a lot of fun and safe. But the faster you go the harder, it gets similar to a golf course in that, you can play from the whites and have a leisurely day. But if you choose to place the tips that's going to get a lot harder a lot faster a very good comparison. So you wanted to make sure that it's GonNa be challenging enough for those that can do the challenging bits. But if you're a hobbyist or a, you know someone with vintage racing or whatever that it's going to be handleable for them. So that was kind of the basis of why it was designed this way because you need to attract as many people across the board as you can. Right. Absolutely, with our six hundred and eighty meter back straight, you can compare that to a wide open fairway. But as you get into some of the more challenging things like our S.'s the trail braking corners, etcetera, we say that if you're driver doing two minute lap times of can take you an afternoon to get to one fifty. One. Forty. Years to get to one thirty five. No. Exactly. Exactly. A lot of lot of good thought and behind this right now no no facility for spectators. It's not a spectator facility and some of the fans listening out there would say why there's the Question Jeff why? So in terms of spectator based facility is when you get into hosting that number of fans, the infrastructure in the land that's required is significant both from things like safety barrier fencing to infrastructure for washrooms and parking. In Our case, Ontario has most which legendary spectator based facility and we don't want to take away from what most sport is. Okay. But for us, we were designing it predominantly with the amateur driver in mind, but as well as the research and engineering education. Components. And so we chose to have a sort of more condensed format in which It's not set up to bring in large volumes of spectators. That's not to say there. WON'T BE PUBLIC ENGAGEMENT But one thing we do have one hundred gigabyte per second fiberoptic, the property. So from a broadcast capability, we have the ability to broadcast racist quite easily from there. Oh, good So we are we're still thinking about engagement with the with the enthusiast and in the oral station complex. itself. I mean between Museums Cafe, restaurant workshops, etc. it becomes a lieven living breathing sort of pit lane, and which enthusiasts have the opportunities to come and walk the grounds and be immersed in absolute automotive culture sort of a chance to see behind the scenes that you wouldn't see elsewhere. Sure sure and and that that that sounds terrific because that's kind of a kind of a new innovative approach to it but. You know other than just letting fans on their but as you say, you never say never so there is the possibility of of maybe some grandstands in the future and that's good. Jeffrey Campbell managing partner proposed oral station racing, research and development facility just north of Berry north of Toronto there is a reese you you touched on it they're a research and development component to this development explained that if he can. So in the rotation complex, we've got over five hundred, thousand square feet of buildings that were designed for advanced manufacturing research and development in the automotive industry. And this encompasses anything from high-performance motorsports, workshops, racing garages, which we're seeing significant interest rates. Teams to locate here as their main campus and homebase. But as well as things like preservation. So we're looking at bringing in a number of automotive restored in companies that would be in there working on classic cars. And then on the innovation side of talking with Thomas and electric vehicle companies good. All of this provides a campus in which they can work and have access to testing facilities directly on property. in the case of autonomous, for example, with that fiber optic connection that we have, we have the ability to do five G. Broadcast and subsequently have Thomas cars running at highway condition speeds on the circuit for testing purposes and so It just creates sort of dedicated business park to automotive ingenuity rate. Now, it's a road course is there enough property there that if you wanted to research and development can also include you know an oval component, not necessarily racing but maybe for testing, do you have room to expand maybe incorporate that in the Future Jeff? We do. Yeah. So we own the Jason. Property. That is there for future potential expansion and the idea there is that. We're going to look at how the tenant base of all's and subsequently developed according to where most demand is. So then you are part one with developer, Jeffrey Campbell one of the officials behind this new station racing real estate in rnd center, just north of Barrie Ontario part to Jeff next week on race line radio.

This is race line presented by Subaru for more Info and news on wrx wrx STI NPR's Ed Click Subaru Dot ca this is the race line radio network. This is Damon. Hill of becoming right back race line radio. We are Canada's national radio. Motorsport Authority we are the race line radio network. I'm Eric. Thomas thank you for spending some of your valuable time with us a giant of our industry that spans back to the nineteen fifties as motorsport journalist promoter, immediate coordinator broadcaster ambassador, and for the past several years general manager of the Canadian Motorsport Hall of Fame Hall of Famer Himself Sid Priddle is retiring after sixty years in the sports. So we get him in here once again to tell a few more stories here as part two with our very good friend Sid parental on race line radio eventually, God formed our own family operation and we did The MOLSON Indy and I guess the greatest pleasure was the fact that I had our son or daughter and even betty involved in the event and carried out on through ninety six. You discovered early on that the drivers in the sport personalities and you wanted to write about the personalities and that kind of made the articles a lot more than simply you know what happened at the race you got in behind that and you exemplify the personalities of the drivers I don't know if you're the first journalist ever to do that but certainly set the standard for all of us in the future where do you remember that transition in your head? Absolutely because and you're exactly right he said you dental the results are available what the heck's. Sir Focusing more on the background of the drivers. Then I moved over to the crew members and people involved in the sport that made it all happen and it did become a I think a far more interesting and saying what? One wants because results came across the wire regardless there aren't many drivers out there that we work with that don't get it. They all seem to get it. They all want to cooperate with the media. They all want to promote the sport to help sell tickets because they realize without the fan base there out of business, and you don't get that another sports, but you do in ours, right? That's quite true I think the. Other thing that the most signed the allowed me to do because it was not a race and It allowed me to expand beyond the sports people I mean those calm. The suit never saw a race never had any interest in going showed up at that event. So again allowed us to do behind the off the sports pages onto other things that helped mortar sport, grow and help to engage a larger audience. Legendary motorcycle journalist promoter media coordinator outgoing general manager of the Canadian Motorsport Hall of fame retiring after sixty years in the sport. Our special guests are very good friend on race lamberty a swing now, as our time is starting to erode a little bit here said to the Canadian Motorsport, Hall of fame Gary Meguid bringing that back to life again, and of course, we're general manager since two thousand and eleven. How important was it to the landscape of racing in this country to have the Canadian Motorsport Hall of Famer Eric. I think the biggest challenge we had was being a charitable organization was the very fact that we soon, realized that supporting financially bricks and mortar were We're not GONNA work. We decided to go the virtual route. Our dedication now is really focusing on past inductees, our induction ceremonies, which, of course, we still have really putting the focus on the website. What we felt was advantageous to this. It's reachable and. By anyone across the country so they can share within the honors of Canadian. Motorsport. Also opened up for a long time. It was Antero Drivers Ontario people go back driver's Quebec but now it's all across Canada were that are nominations have come from in fact, this year we had now are sitting on a total of over forty nomination. Wow, that's amazing. Your involvement with the Canadian Grand Prix and Bernie ecclestone calling you from the helicopter.

Let us now go to the mail bag and here she is right over here I wanted to get to this and I apologize once again to a frequent enter Is there such a word Paul Anton Dearborn Heights. Michigan a very good friend loyal listener has been. For since a year, they invented rope. From Dearborn. Heights. Michigan on. Sunday nights eight o'clock on am eight, hundred CK L. W.. In Windsor. He sent this note quantum while ago but I did WANNA follow up with it because I I did get hold of a very good friend of mine who now works in the Nhra he says Eric. Thank. You very much for your program. Appreciate all the efforts. Thank you so much. Always appreciate the compliment Paul Hope you and your family members are continuing to do well as you stay safe during coronavirus situation and right back at you Paul he goes on to say when the world of outlaws sprint cars raced recently at Knoxville Iowa the fans were invited into the pits after the racism normally are but this resulted in several will devote laws teams testing. Positive. For the nineteen virus also resulting in the end of racing for the season at Knoxville News Right the National Hot Rod Association as you all well know Eric part of the G A ticket general admission ticket they sell due to each spectator allows full to the pits as well as the grandstands a wonder if this is a good approach at this time giving the ongoing virus pandemic that continues right now any thoughts eric have thoughts on it and I as I said I got a hold of a very good friend of Mine Pat Cafarelli who I've known for doing work for years and years with with Indycar went away did some work with the NHRA she's back. With the National Hot Rod Association. She does media work for par and Don Schumacher, racing with drivers, Matt Hagen and Leah Pruitt and I asked her about that I said what about the fan access that is synonymous and famous for the Nhra no other sanctioning body allows you into the pits unless they charge you more for it. I said what about fans during this pandemic and she says E. T. it depends on the venue at Indy back in July August twenty, five percent capacity and social distancing temp testing at entrances and waivers and mass to get in had to be worn at all times. Yes. Fans had access to the pits but the autograph sessions or gatherings and. They had a few concessions at the nationals again in Indianapolis this month fifty percent capacity there was testing masks, but a lot of people not wearing masks and she was very disappointed in that and I can say that so you know the watch word is where the darn mask try and distance the best you can, and it's up to you ultimately, you know it's up to you to to police yourself and make sure that you don't spread this things we keep saying you know use your head to stop the spread. So thanks Paul for your your note also the Pat Capper, our good buddy for clarifying that send us your contest entries or comments you can use A. Race Line radio DOT CA to connect and at her facebook and Instagram Race Line Radio Network, and twitter at e race line. Again, just not to over emphasize it or hammer this home we can't say this enough the situation with with corona virus or the covert nineteen thing is really still out of control and you know what you you can get the sanctioning bodies and the tracks to tell ya you gotta wear. Your mask, but it's up to you ultimately decide whether you want to go there one and two you're gonNA. Wear your mask and not help spread this thing and I can't emphasize that enough and I wanted to just jump back in reemphasized that and of course, in Ontario and a few other places across the country the numbers are starting to spike again and the only thing you blame that on his people's Stupidity. And responsibility and I don't care. If you think that's too strongly worded, it's up to you to get serious with this whole thing, and if you're going to go to a race track and then on event, it's up to you to wear your mask and do all. You can to help prevent the spread anyway qualifying question to get into your chance to win. The prize pack between twenty two Subaru Zet getting added engine power. How many? HP IS THE NEXT? Gen. Ours is projected to put out. Okay. Okay. Let's roll another pitstop right here. Well, then we're back with more detailed F one season recap. James, Neilson from inside track motorsports news this race line presented by Subaru more on the sports google the Subaru dot ca slash. Zach this is the race line already own network. I disagree love we're coming right back. Race. Line radio. Peta's National Radio Motorsport Authority are twenty eighth consecutive season your across Canada we are the race line. Network networks last week and is gotten even stranger that's possible with formula, one is certainly is the shortened Formula One season lots of drama unpredictability and conflict and controversy. So once again, that's get some more focused analysis of the F one season so far welcoming back the assistant editor at F. One specialist from inside track motor sport use our good friend James Nielsen on Race Line Radio Majella was it's called the motorcycle racing track and the Grand Prix of Tuscany. Grand Prix as we've seen in quite a while there's been all kinds of of conjecture and guessing about who to blame. There's been various analyses of this. How did you see this? I cannot blame boathouse for for for any of that I mean he sets the pace. He's got to be the first across the wire sooners. Those lights go out. How did you analyze it James? Yeah I think it. Was a combination of things I mean you can't really fault the drivers of the back for trying to have the best start. You know there's definitely some overeagerness going on. That's the whereas as well. Eagerness and I thought they were getting off pretty slow and I, think that is unsafe. So I I do think it's a bit of the blame does Kinda should go all around but I don't. Think it's anyone particular person's fault I think sometimes that just happens and uncharacteristic of f one usually sloppy races are really the norm and the series for obvious reasons cal level. But yeah, that was definitely something that was a little sloppy. It's not standing starts versus rolling starts. That's not the argument isn't no you know it's the gamesmanship involved. We see this all the time when the safety is. Going off the guys will try to slow down as possibly as much as they can and then take off and try to create a gap. You know maybe going forward, they need to investigate a minimum speed that they need to be going. You know go from there. You know definitely there are times we've seen lots of times in all forms of racing where some guys slow to an absolute crawl. And you. Know you do you are ultimately like you see it all the time on on race starts in a bunch of series where you get that accordion effect into the first corner that's right and you know. So it wouldn't be hard to monitor their speeds. You know they do it on the pit lane they do it every in lots places. So I I I think maybe the times come for that because you really like you said, you know it's it's probably not voters as fall like that's just gamesmanship but at the same time. Wasn't really anyone in the ball either like can't really fault anyone for trying to get a good start young kind of what caused all that in the first place a little impatience you see it all the time I mean the indycar starts notoriously lousy for that because the guys in the backer breaking formation long before they're supposed to however, as you say, they may need to tweak the restart situation because you know that that was messy and it's just we're talking about it because as you say, it is so unusual to see you know that kind of multi-car wreckage especially on a restart. So we'll. We'll leave it there and figure out what they're gonNa do you know maybe you adjusted in the off season just after we finished our last segment James we knew we were guessing on where vital is going to go. It looked like he was gonNA head to racing point indeed he has replaced or will replace Sergio Perez at the end of the year he will team with Montreal Zone Land Stroll with a team is dad owns they're gonNA. Re Badge it Aston Martin. So all of that all of that prophesyzing came true at least with federal going to racing point right? Yeah. There was no surprise. I mean the musical chairs had started to fall, and there was only really one place that he could go to stay in the top half of the grid and that was racing point. you know obviously, Lawrence strolls proven to be ambitious since he broke in one and bought racing point. And you know the Aston Martin deals extension of that, and you know being able to land a marquee driver for the first year that new project is in line with the the moves he's been making Everson came into F one. What do you think that'll 's of future looks like I've always said you know the guy's not a four-time champion because he's been lucky. He's not had any luck at all and. We. We've talked about in detail Noah terribleness in the in his Ferrari. Era His career. But I still think I like the guy. He seems to be a very likable personality. He's got a lot of talent I. Still think he can win races and obviously Lawrence Stroll things so too. There's a lot of factors going on it for me that Ferrari that the car's not suited to him I don't know how much. The relationship deteriorated they're saying all the right things publicly, but you do see on those incidents on the radio for example, where you know there seemed to be some tension and frost bit disorganized behind the scenes and that's absolutely affecting his pace. It seems like they're engine is down on power this year as well. They look like they were catching Mercedes in that regard over the last few years and. It off a cliff again. So yeah, I mean I still think he's talented but at the same time, there are guys who peak somewhat early and don't really you know have the same level of competitive competitiveness later on their career I mean Canadian fans can probably see that was shocked mill new. You know I, don't think his. Performances were quite where they needed to be later on in his career where we thought they were they could be vis-a-vis his performances and Indycar, and in his early morning one career regardless of the quality of the car he was in just talking relative to his teammates. I mean there's a there's a lot to to learn from a guy like vital salons strolls got to be excited about the partnership. Yeah absolutely. I mean, it's one of those situations where is definitely going to be a number two, but he's number two and a team owned by that so. I I don't think he's going to have the same kind of worry that someone like stay navy albion as a red bull. Yeah. It's a good comparison. Yeah. what happens with Nick Latifi team gets sold Claire and Frank Williams are gone. We discussed that in our last segment. James but I mean I I would hate to think that the the young man, the young Canadian is GonNa fall through the cracks me. George. Russell's seems to be a guy that a lot of teams are putting a lot of stock in the star of the future. What happens to nick? I mean Russell's no not going anywhere. I don't think Look TV's a strange one because his dad owns portions of McLaren from not. From not incorrect you're right? Yes. But he also brings a budget I don't know where that budget is coming from. It's from his dad or from other sources media. But then you hear stories about how McLean is now downsizing like they put their headquarters up for sale, for example. With the plan to lease back I don't quite understand the economics of that. You know. Clarence their automotive side, this all their sports cars. That hasn't been doing very well, and it's worth a lot of layoffs and it seems to have. It'd be having a bit of knock on effect on the race team. The race team is. On the upswing yeah. Yeah, and it's a we're going to be talking a whole lot more about cost containment and spending in the next little while once we get this this season going here up you know after this year, you've got to open it. You can't. Prophesized because you don't know where the hell is. This corona virus thing is is going to goal, but you've gotta think after this wacky season in the way they had to schedule themselves and recover from this that you know how teams plan for the future when you don't really know what the future is going to look like. Well I think at the end of the day, we already kind of have A. Idea next year is gonNA. Look like because the the original introduction of the new formula. Has Been Put on hold so I I don't think it's going to really affect the behind the scenes stuff I mean obviously there's going to be an economic hit, but that's really that happens all the time regardless of a pandemic. So I imagine they're programs aren't going to change too much like you're seeing teams racing point had new equipment at Miguel I think stroll enough for Peres. So teams are still developing during the season McLaren had a new t wing at the back of the car. So I think the in season development hasn't really changed I don't imagine the the Off Season Development is going to change much particularly because you're not having to build those new to those new rules which have been pushed back. So yeah, I mean if this thing lingers in the next year, maybe that's where you're gonNA start seeing some issues of teams possibly pushing the new formula back again, and if not, then that's where you're going to see a lot of change because they're going to have to get prepared for a whole new type car that they have to be in.

If e could create a street race in Seattle Washington. What's your? Take my response to him? Was this really no idea Donald in general formula is okay, but it is not catching on as fast as they would like why Seattle. Donald replied well to grow the sport more in the northwest really. Really has Portland International Raceway by adding a Rayson Seattle people in the northwest can be included more on the Formula E indy-car circuits and help grow generations of spire drivers for the future. My response to that was NASCAR has had a plan on. In case, you didn't know to expand to the Seattle market for quite a while now I'm not sure if e formula of course would spark much interest at least not at this point now. An indycar street race might considering there is a history in that area. When the the India ran in Vancouver, it was fraught with problems. right from the start in in in that in Vancouver itself. Itself but there are certainly race fans you know up in the northwest in Seattle. MARKET DONALD SAYS I agree about Formula E. Eric, but would like to see more NASCAR indycar drivers from the northwest only Greg Casey Kane have emerged so far and I said, thank you for your note in your thoughts Donald Well Yeah! I mean NASCAR's looking to expand their for a while. I don't think there's been any progress. Of course. The nineteen thing is is you know pretty much. Put a muffle on that thing, but NASCAR has planned to expand to the Seattle market for a while now we know the NHL is is trying to do the same. You know it may be one of those quadrants of north. America. That hasn't been tapped fully, and I can understand why. NASCAR would want to expand their, but a street race in Seattle would be would be Kinda neat. Seattle has a reputation as being probably one of the best cities to live in in the continental United States and maybe it would go there. We'll have to see. See and we do thank God Donald for his not always has some some good comments. George Ball or bowel Georgia, that's wrong or right I apologize for the wrong one, he says Eric the twenty twenty two subaru wrx Ti will provide up to. He has got it so many horsepower. That's correct George. Thank you so much. You're into the the brake drum for your chance to win. The prize pack in terms of. Expansion Yell we have. We know that formula. One had looked at the possibility of doing something. in the New York New Jersey area, running a race in New Jersey along the river. with the New York City Skyline in the background that has not been discussed for a long time. There was tremendous pushback from the residents in that area against having anything like that in their city. Of course, F one would would love to put anything. Additional in on the continent in North America certainly, the Canadian Grand Prix is there and well established in the race in Austin Texas, but they'd like to add another one. In terms of expanding everyone is always looking to expand certainly in in North America. Because you know when you're talking about, you, know car manufacturers. North America's certainly leads the way a lot of vehicles sold elsewhere in the world China I think is the number one car buyer in the business, but you know in terms of expansion anything in the US and the North West would be a good so we'll keep our eyes on that to see if anything comes out and we appreciate all the notes from Donald and from George send us your contest, entries or comments US Eric at Richland Radio Dot, ca to enter and connect facebook and instagram radio network.

Let's set up for another pitstop. Here will then part one of our interview with first time indycar winner. Felix Rosenquist this is race line presented by Subaru for more on the sports coupe go. Subaru ca slash ERS ed. This is the race line radio. Network this bobby. Ray, Hall and you're listening to race line radio. Canada's national radio. Motor Sport Authority are Twenty Eighth Consecutive Seasons Halmahera across Canada. We are the race line Radio Network over twenty eight years on the air. We've always celebrated with drivers who pull off their first victories at Cigna storage. For any driver, Canadian or otherwise get asi racing's trio rocketing under the INDYCAR gate with New Zealand's Scott Dixon, winning three in a row and his Swedish teammate. In the second race at Road America so here's part one of our interview with the engaging Felix Rosenquist on race line radio, what a start to the season for you and the team chip Ganassi is a perfect for for four Dixon wins three in a row. You grab your first win. It's if you're going to have a start to a season protracted as this one with Cova thing going on, you know you couldn't have scripted at any better, could you? Know you're right. It's been a fantastic start for us at the NASA racing. You know it's. It's a dream start. Maybe not for for me. personality 'cause I had pretty bad racist, leading up to this win, but obviously Scott you know with the three wins in a row, and and leaving the championship quite comfortably and right now you know you couldn't ask for, but it starts so Yeah. I think the cars have been really strong especially in the race. It's still looking to find something performance in the qualifying, but but yeah I. It's been a solid year so far, and we tried to know where we're not relaxing. We trying to find. You know still tense here and there to to improve the car and You brought him something. That's very interesting is is the Dixon came flying out of the gate in one three in a row. You didn't have yourself the best start to the season, but you and this team and the personnel that you have were able to shake that off Felix. M. Not a lot of guys are able to do that. You shook it off. You said okay. Just try the next the next one, and then you finally hit in that second race at Road America that got to be good to see you. Guys be able to recover when things Kinda. come off the rails like that. For, sure you know I in indycar everything. Kinda goes up and down. Anyway but I think still you know we were pretty confident. It will happen at some point because we you know the first race in Texas. We really really good pace. We're running pete to before crashing out in the end you know even even in the GP the first race at road. America, we had great pays, but just you know didn't really have the race coming to us and the strategy. Maybe they didn't really work out and I I probably didn't have my strongest races, either so but yeah everything changes quickly and and Road America. We had a chance to go. Go for it, and that's what you need to take. The chance to use the maximum that day and from all perspectives, but you know you just have to be ready. When that they come to yeah, exactly Felix Rosenquist rising number ten NTT Data Dilemma. Honda for Chip Ganassi racing in the T. indycar series is kind of loaded question. It's all encompassing, and you could probably talk about it for an hour, but if someone says why has this team been so good? Right out of the box against the PENSKE's? Who folded a little bit in the Andretti's a certainly struggled. Why has the chip Ganassi Organization? Felix been so darned good right out of the box here. I. Think it's It's a mix of You know handling the covy nineteen situation very well and very professionally. I, I've been really impressed with how. Organized everything and to hasn't been any panic. everyone that's worked efficiently from you know from home, and now they're starting to work. You know more and more at the shop. and then I think it's just the the hunger to you, know we. We didn't have the best season last year. I mean I finished which which was good for my rookie year buzz. Dixon finish fourth. Overall team. We weren't happy where. Where we were standing especially on the ovals and five hundred, and and that has led to big push over the winter with some new engineers coming along added another car. Sarah Sunday car and you got from there. Just been know I. Think I think that's been the key Mike. Cannon is an addition there on certainly on Dixon side of things, but a guy that gets interviewed every once in a while, but probably doesn't get a whole lot of credit is a guy who's approaching thirty years with the team, and that's the managing director of the whole squad and Mike Hall. Here's a guy who's had tremendous success in a tremendous amount of. Talk a little bit about his contribution. Because it is huge on this team, and it has been that way for a long time, isn't it? Mike has has seen it all with team. You know he's been here right from the start and and you know I think he's definitely one of the one of the guys who have been pushing for for a change in the team and to. Get back to winning ways, and and you know Mike is Solo. He's very high up in the in the team. And you know he's safe. You know then goes down and and we try to obviously. You know change whatever he wants us to do. In the best possible way you know, th there's been. Strict orders to talk that you know. Let let let's try to win in the five hundred this year. I think that's been the the main thing, but doing that. You know it's not easy and with that push comes a lot of other improvement, so even for the road course, and but a short over and so on. The. Mike Mike sounded very determined after last season. While we stop down the you know he he. Let let let's try to do something here. Yeah, exactly Felix Rosenquist on Radio Coast to coast in Canada your first series win. We just talked about the at the second race at Road America every driver remembers their very first win. Talk about how special that was to finally cash that you knew it was well necessarily only a matter of time, but it's always a thrill, no matter what you're driving any series to grab that for chequered flag. Yeah it was really cool feelings in many ways you know first of all it my first win, which is fantastic in the car which is. One of the top series in the world and motives for You know I thought it was. Extremely special to to do it with mine number ten entity data crew You know they've been looking for this win. Since two thousand fourteen and a lot of the guys on on the car has been working since then on the car for example Ricky Davis. My crew chief and Barry wants or my my strategist. You know that they've been working there. Everyday to get this win, and and they got it on Sunday and it was just cool to see how how special that was to them. As well. You know I mean if not only about the you know. We were working as a team and yeah, just really cool and I and also for Honda, obviously to celebrate the win that vote America with a big fight. Fight with Chevy there and then of critical. Yeah, it certainly was Pado award major work for it. Though I mean you know you look at the youth movement in Indycar, and it's always good for the health of the overall series. The youngsters can can get up there and challenge some of the the veteran. Guys but paddle made you work for this one, didn't he? A big time you know, it was a big hunt to to to to get him in the end of the race. There real we lost. Everything just had damage. The front left wheel. Have didn't make didn't make anything easier for sure, but yeah, he came that came down to the to the final couple of labs and we had some really good, you know. By action. I recall on us in a row there it was. Me Being. All, all the crowds love. That's for sure. Yeah, and it's funny because you're used to stock cars making contact, you're not necessarily used to open new cars making contact, but you know he's Outta tire and you're trying to get around him. And it was one of those deals. You've got a relish fights like that. especially in in single seater open wheel cars because you know as they say, they're not necessarily touch Luis Felix, but when it does happen, it is pretty erasing. Stop you. You'll like battles like that where you're going. If you if your pardon, the stockcar racing term door to door if you know what I mean. Yeah that that's what special with India Carcass. It's though only real formal car championship where you can actually have some you know contact through car pretty heaven. They're very sturdy. You know they're built very robustly to be able to do that. And and it happens every race, and it's it's. It's pretty cool that we can. We can give that kind of action in a in a formula car to to the people watching. Yeah, you gotta be careful because you can bend stuff easily in those, even though they are as you say, built robust and sturdy. If you don't do it the right way, you can ben stuff, can't you? Exactly we wheel-to-wheel is never really good recipe, but we'll to carbon normally doesn't break too much. Normally normally we try to stay away from happened on the Iowa. All the GANASSI's struggled a little bit with a penske sweep Dixon's second and Fifth Felix their fourteenth and fifteenth, but that first win as always special part to with Rosenquist next week on race line radio.

The Quique of WHO's that the neighbor could you ask him about the Red Door Zach. Stop lose someone. I need this weekend. Speaking from Gimblett media. I'm Jonathan Gould. Steam and this is heavyweight. Today's Today's episode Elise. So now what happens. They're just going to call. We'll see oh boy get ready for a while L. Back my producers and I decided to try a phone in episode Larry King Rush Limbaugh and other Goldstein ask personalities had found success with them. MM So why I wondered from the depths of my ignorance couldn't die and so full full of Hubris and hope we open the phone lines and invite the whole world to call in with a small moment from their past something to revisit and resolve all during the course of a five minute phone. Call this way I got into his business. The you know the feeling of live live radio as to learn the thing about a phone in show is that you need people to phone in and nobody is has day but just as I'm starting to wonder if Gimblett media has forgotten to pay it's telephone bill again. Not all right. Hello this. Is Jonathan speaking king. Hi Jonathan How's it going. Okay is this what is what's your name. Elise this is. I knew very surprised I got through. This is so exciting. Guess he really lucked out. Elise is a long time listener. first-time caller from Washington DC and as it turns out Her call proves not only the first of the day. But also the last and this is not just because we don't receive any other calls. It's because I'm completely drawn. I'm in by the story at least tells me about herself and her dad. What's his name? Belly Billy Yeah I guess I basically. I'm a strange from my father. When lease was a kid? Billy was the fun parent. The the one who always had hours to play with her the guy who in spite of being something of a macho man gave himself over to playing beauty salon even allowing elise to painted toenails before the strange man billion elise were really close which is why not having any relationship now hurts the way it does. She was my dad like our idea of a family vacation was to like show up in a country with no plan and like rent car and just drive around and it was amazing. Like that's why not life without like everyday is an adventure even the way. Yeah Billy matter. Lisa's mom was like something out of a movie. The first act of a film noir. Billy was an Englishman driving through Chattanooga on a tourist visa when he got into a terrible terrible car accident and the physical therapist assigned to him was Elisa's mom. Billy was still in a wheelchair when he talked her into sneaking out of the hospital for their first date pretty soon after they got married and had a lease. Bill never went back to England instead. He stayed with his family in Chattanooga and became a successful used car salesman. I have a lot of things in my upbringing. And life with tend to be very grateful for an addition percents alter crazy now in reference to her dad at least brings up craziness a lot like the crazy way. Billy ruined her credit by opening a business. Nisa name or the crazy time. He drove home a brand new car only to have cops come looking for it with their guns drawn or the crazy way. He destroyed his twenty four year marriage with a series of affairs. There's one Christmas where he bailed on the family. Only to spend the holiday with another woman and for all of these these things no matter how jarring painful at least as founded in herself to forgive her father. But there's one thing she hasn't been able to forgive about five years ago he moved out of the country without telling us us is at least in her mom. On the Lisa's parents had been married her whole life but recently separated around the time of his disappearance. Her last good memory of her dad is watching watching him. Wave from the crowd as she crossed the stage at her college graduation days later he disappeared and disappeared is the word for it says that when she went over to his house she found food rotting in the refrigerator. And all the furniture. Still there For a week at least had no idea what had happened to her father and then she received an email. It simply said he'd be gone for a little while and that email was the best way to stay in touch. There was no further explanation. The next time she heard from him was on her birthday. Six months later Christmas note. And that's more or less. been the pattern for the last five years On holiday is and my my birthday and stuff like that His emails are very short like three sentences or less sort of happy. Whatever holiday is they hope? You'RE WELL WADAD AT I. At least tried responding should express some of her pain and anger in hopes of provoking a more substantial dialogue. UGH But billy would refuse to engage so after an email pressing her father for answers. A few months would pass with no response and then an email woodland land in a Lisa's inbox wishing her a happy whatever holiday it is an hoping she's well loved add as though nothing was ever expressed and nothing was ever asked asked of him eventually. Police stopped responding to his emails entirely. We don't have a mailing address for him. I don't know if it's never like only connection. I have to him as a contest. Email address do you do know where he's living keys in the Philippines. I that's all I know. My mom has pinpointed the region but like there was ever like. She never told me where he was going or why he never never explained why he left. And this is what at least once an explanation the nation for his departure in emotional honest conversation where she can ask him. Why and what happened? Because in the five years since she last saw him a lot has happened keep a new family. He also has a wife and a kid a- and then he actually named his new daughter my name. Oh my God I just find it so insulting and it's just such a transparent replacement like I moved to a country and like native new you so when people search for release on facebook the I resulted comes up is new. Elise and the page billy made for her which means old elise is forced to constantly explain that this is her dad's new daughter from his new family who also just happens to have her name like he just wanted me to like live. Hennion be happy with him again but the elephant in the room that he's living the seriously somewhere for half a decade and we've never discussed it at least feels like she and billy are living living in two different realities. She in the one where her father abandoned her in. He in the one where he did nothing wrong. She wants her dad to validate what she seen in felt to understand. Otherwise how can they move forward. Are you wanting to have a relationship with him. Because he's he's also he's like he's like he's just kind of old and sick and might die and I might never know us sixty five and possibly working a very physically taxing job. She was working on container ships. We first moved over and I've been possibly choosing the rule of not having a relationship but the fear and the bill. That's worse with time. What would what would pursuing a relationship? Look like That's what I try. I'm trying to figure out like yeah. I mean he's my dad and he's he's I feel like he's trying to maintain a relationship with me and I just don't know how to work past it. I know I can sometimes come across as something of a meddler but I only decided to get involved in the business of upturning people's entire lives after hours sometimes even even days of careful consideration but then I've never hosted a call in show before and so- adrenaline is by the single flashing light light on my switchboard and the imperial perch of my slightly elevated Swivel Chair. I dive in. Would you want me to call him up and I say this by the way like with the the idea that could be terrible terrible idea. I'm not championing this idea. This could be a stupid idea. Yeah it's better than any of the ideas that I've had for the past year so yeah I think I think I think it would be helpful. My idea is to serve as a Lisa's emotional advance scout to call her dad and see if he might be ready after all this time to talk to a lease and offer some answers given what elise is told me about her dad. I can't say I'm optimistic about that. But then again. I can't say I'm optimistic about anything. Saying Goodbye for the rest of your calls. No one's GONNA call anyway so no this is good call in show and so it comes to pass that a email billy as waiters response. I imagine various scenarios. Maybe billy will treat me the Lakers student loan officer. Sorry Sir. You've got the wrong billy. He might say or. Perhaps we'll try to convince me. I have the story all wrong along that at least in her mom are the real villains after a week and a half I finally hear back from billy in his actual response is more surprising than any. I might have imagined. It's just a simple node apologizing for the delay billy explains it's the rainy season in the Philippines and it's been messing with his Internet but he says he really wants to talk to me to be honest with view he writes. You were the only hope. I have of communicating with the lease. Hello Hi this. Is Jonathan Goldstein speaking. Hey Jonathan aged. It's terrible evening here again. Thunder and lightning. I told you rainy season so but anyway so east contact. Although Elisa's last memory of her dad was at her graduation ceremony. Billy has a different final memory and as he describes it it was one of the most painful moments of his life. He was in the midst of the separation from a lease mom walking walking out of the garage carrying box and deep sea shaving with the house from the driveway and Elise was in the garden. Would well when she saw him. She darted back into believing and kind of heat will sell. Oh so I couldn't see but I know for black she solman 'cause we made our content. Doc I get that this had to have been painful for billy but is Elisa's interlocutor. I tell him this isn't about his pain. It's about his daughter's daughter's pain in her anger and if there to speak he should be prepared for that. I can't imagine that something billy wants to hear and I'm worried how he'll react as far as her feeling anger on her mother's behalf wrapped. I can assure you on understandable once again billy has managed to surprise me. I basically Blunt Shit all over that woman on them Agents and was one particular Sunday morning. She was a cooking. But I and the phone rings and there's a woman on the island and and the woman says hey. This is Angela. And I speak to Boeing and simple. Who you and she you just openly? She should one girlfriend action. Ones getting up Concha section like that on a Sunday morning in the middle of breakfast on your husbands go and at least the kids that we need one can assure you girl or she says it's accurate and if it's not only ugly pitcher. She's left something I trust me. It's really ugly secure but absolutely nothing. Alive won't be completely honest. Oakland avail up and I have absolutely no problem discussing after hearing. Everything Elise had to say about billy's unwillingness to own up his refusal to engage. I was expecting the worst but billy seems genuinely remorseful apologetic and even eager to hear his daughter out. He tells me he kept his distance since out of fear. That at least didn't WanNa hear from him at all but he thinks about her all the time. I don't know if it is. I'm all her either. I don't know if it's based talk feel like I've lost my door. I don't know what it is but it was only sorry. Teach when I found out she had moved to mean to make call him back. tweet me because to me. That means she wants to get our relationship back back in.

Yeah yeah well. Let's try him. Hello is this bill. Yes Hi Bill. This is Jonathan Goldstein. Speaking a buddy what's going on. I'm here with Elise. Hey Dad hi hi honey how are you. I'm I'm good. How are you good to send? That's good. I'm glad that you were approached. y'All any communication that we can get our I. It is very good yeah. I'm sorry it took such a long time. I just honey I understand what all still work soon copeland's and went along with more than one one hundred percent if you think back when you shared a lot of great times but at least isn't here to talk about the Great Times. She's here to talk about the bad times. In fact she's written up some notes to make sure she doesn't leave any feelings or questions on sad. The the notes are in her hand but she isn't looking at them instead. She speaks from the heart. Okay I have thought about emailing you back. I've just been so angry angry that I didn't think it would be productive And like I have just wanted to. I like yell at you or cry or custody out for leaving not explaining me thing but I don't feel that like intense anger anymore and I am sad that we don't have a relationship like we used to but I feel like every time I let you back in and I forgive you for whatever has happened before you end up just breaking my heart again an and I I do find it very insulting that you gave another child my name first and last name and I don't know I don't know what it relationship we're going to have in the future. I just I had to sort of get in some of this out for any of that to be possible. The billy is silent for a while when he finally does respond. He skips right over. The big question about is leaving without explanation and focuses. This is on the second question instead. The question of Lisa's name. Well I can tell you it was her mother marks the name a leash auction of complex. Thanks to you know you know literally slump. But I didn't links to be honest with you and then the culture and the Philippine Different Gucci when other example. Wonder if your favorite dogs charring okay. I've never owned a German ship or the ogre. He'll but we had a dog. Doc Story that I know what would they call the doll- by the look on her face at least doesn't seem reassured by the fact that like her Charlie. The beloved German Shepherd from her childhood had also been replaced. Although I haven't been to the Philippines it feels as though billy is throwing an entire country under the bus to save his own hide in the silence. I try to bring things back to what I think think is billy strongest suit. His seemingly renewed capacity for repentance. I want at least to hear what I heard and billy during our first conversation so I try to steer things in that direction bill You know you you you you mentioned Feeling regret what would you do differently if you had a chance to to do things over we you don't think final outcome change. Not only with me. I should have code Cole or family meeting and I should have gone over in Kinkel. We've crimes and bait and Qur`an Dan the family meeting about leaving. Your family was not the do over. I was expecting adding after having heard the level of Old Testament shaming express than our first phone. Call I'm surprised that Billy's now talking the language of meetings and launch dates they at least stares down at the floor. She looks at me. Billy's not giving her what she needs so she puts it to him as directly as she can like. You have to understand that you just disappeared and I had no context like I wanna know what you were thinking when you left and like why you left. I like what happened. Well Lots of things insult to dogging losing I'm here I'm I'm listening. There's anything you want to say well. They were several several happened. It's a long stone Arwood like were on to step by step. Go condo climbed born busy schedule is there any like brief overview us. Yeah on the dance. Your conscience are alcoholics. The Nation you know happened. Think in more them happy. Explain it to you but then nothing in the conversation goes round and round. Billy reassures lease that. He has explanations explanations of every lane and level of detail bill. It's just that he never actually shares any more than happy with every question you have. Is there anything you've wanted to say to me. They won't all across Jim but I won't answer like right now. You're just telling when you're going to tell me like do you have anything billy likes to talk about talking about heart things but we're not actually talking about them still at least keeps pushing I understand that it's very painful for you but I there have been so many times when we've just glossed over insane things that have happened crazy things. I understand that there has to be explanations within supports the options for coaching and things done And all about eve. He's done his act for last question. I have how her Billy's not making any headway talking about the past. So he turns the conversation into the future. What's in poor taste? I get shady. Which one more I want to go? Yeah I don't. I don't want that either and with that at least his hands fall into her lap as an interlocutor interlocutor. There isn't much for me to do. The least here's what Billie is saying and not saying and she doesn't need any help to understand so I do the only thing I can. I sit beside her. commiserating with raised. Eyebrows and puzzled looks saying without words. I see the same things you do. And it's not got you for the rest of the call. Elise stays quiet quiet and allows billy to talk though it feels as though he's mostly talking to himself backward going more. Don't go backwards. Too much pain back. There can be back mirror. Just sprung. Wouldn't happen but shit show buying coke. Kurt's a loss the as billy tries to push away the past while cowering from the future. The present takes hold the one. Billy can't deny I am Totaling one minute Are Unknown personally responsible for and so in other explanations eliminations ought to know. I'll be more democracy. That dog will be more than happy and more. Won't that billy promises that that evening he'll send to lease an email in email email. That will explain everything but it never arrives not that night or the next or any night in the months that follow. I really mail you later today. Okay yeah in June okay. Bill will have a good rest of the day. Thanks for thanks for talking dead. I appreciate it our great Dane hunting you till eighteen Okay how you doing once. We're off the phone on elites and I go over what just happened. She tells me she felt steamrolled. And I tell you that I felt it too. I wasn't really sure what I wanted to get out of it. I don't think that everyone gets sort of like equally agreeable compromised remind ending but for a long time I felt like the burden of us. Not Having a relationship was on me because he would email and I would never respond and that was kind of the end of bet and I feel like now that I have tried to contact him like the burden of us not having whatever relationship I think we should have. Love is not as much on me. I feel a lot of skill now. We'll never be as close as it sounds. It's like he wanted us to be. I don't think that's likely and like maybe it's okay that I don't push for that. I think he creates his own universe like I lived. I was a permanent resident of like billy worlds for a number of years and I was glad to get off the ride like you. Don't get to live in the university. You create unexpected not to affect other people And other people have have been affected in recent months elise has been corresponding with a British man named Martin and Martin was able to help release answer the question of why why her father left in a way that billy himself. Couldn't Martin believes he's billy son or before billy left England for Chattanooga so unlike Elise Martin grew up without a father because likely one day without warning his father left moved to another country and started another family and from wet Martin is saying he's not the only one there's another man living in England he tells her who also believes leaves. That billy is his father. The two of them have been trying to reach billy for years. In fact it turns out that Martin analysts have brushed against each other before a long time ago. When I was growing up? She remembers the home phone ringing. Usually around the holidays and a young man with her father's accent on the line asking to speak to billy back then. Billy said Martin was a distant cousin and all these years later Martin still feels like he's being pushed away he just wants billy to acknowledge him in learning about Martin and other possible half-brother our story three has repeated itself over and over at least found the answer. She needed the answer. Billy himself was never able to give her. It isn't about her whereabout Martin or anyone else. The reason billy did what billy did is because that's what billy does Martin and the other possible half-brother are planning take a DNA test and they'd like at least to take one too if their DNA matches hers. Martin says it's all the proof they'll need billy will have to accept them him as his own when I talked to her on the phone about it later on at least says she isn't sure a DNA test will give Martin the thing he's looking for but she does want to help. Knowing how much I wanted closure it would definitely be good to be able to provide him some so the next time she and Martin speak. She'll offer him this whatever relationship you have in your head that you want with him is probably not possible and like I can confirm that you're genetically related but that doesn't guarantee that he will be a presence in your life in a way that you want. Because he is not able to do that for me in other words at least will tell Martin. I see the same things you you do. And it's not you a few months after our recall with her father tonight check back in. She tells me she still hasn't heard from billy but she suspects that around the holidays. Like always and you'll get that three sentences email in when she does this time show right and back happy whatever holiday it is show right.

Selects I've chosen a super cool episode. That has it all engineering. Hearing Strange Physics Elon. Musk what else do you want. What more could you ask for Also by the way. I'm pretty sure that the contest we talk about in the listener mail is no longer around since it's many many years old at any rate. Enjoy this episode about the future of transportation. Welcome to step you should now a production of iheartradio's how stuff works. Hey and welcome to the podcast. I'm Josh Clark in this Charles W chuck chuckers Bryant. Yeah Yeah and this is w sure. Yeah my bus ride into see see rider Elvis style. Dial how are they going with the muppet show time. We put on makeup. Yeah what was it. Tomase giant stomach shepherd like doc was that weird was crazy. I couldn't have been jerry stomach. There's no way all right. It's what's your intro stalling. Chuck yes You remember our magnet. podcast yeah I personally really thought it was a great episode because we explain how magnets work. Yeah it was good tough but good. Yeah it was tough but it was also kind of It was one of those ones where you're like. Oh okay that explains pretty much everything about magnets that I've used before in my life. I just kind of took for granted. Some people think that their magic but we kind of said this is how they work. I liked it so I liked this this Article article in theory. The one we're about to show. Yeah about maglev trains. Yeah we did a video on maglev. Trains Murmur that neither one of our one of our interstitial shorts was on maglev trains Yeah I remember doing the Quantum levitation was at it now. Maglev are you sure. Yeah because that's the only way I knew about any of this because the fact that we had talked about it before well. What did we talk about? You know the basic principle in one minute behind magnetic levitation. Well it's pretty much what we're going to do here. Yeah except slightly longer so That was my intro uninsured and we should say also Everyone it is next to impossible to get get up to the minute up to the year information about what maglev trains are in Operation Order still planned. What's still going on so it is possible? We may get that part a little incorrect. But we're going to try our best to be as accurate as possible yet. Ah The reason why is because magnetic levitation to power train so new while it's actually not that new. They've been doing it for a while. Well Yeah Start. It was proposed ever since Tesla's started what was going on in the late nineteenth century. But it's so new in this regard as far as super fast speed the trains powered by magnets transporting lots of people over distances. Maybe great distances. Yeah that is so new and there are so few the different technologies that it is hard to keep track on which one is in the forefront. Right which ones are being funded because the stuff is expensive it is. It's hard to get funding especially here in the states. And if you go on if you just type maglev into Google or your favorite search engine Or Duck Duck. Go if you're you know kind of watching WHO's watching you. was that a like a secret. It's like an anonymous search engine. Okay you will find. There's projects projects all over the United States and all of them are like were shovel ready. We're ready to go. Just give us some money. And they're not getting any money because the construction costs are so enormous because with maglev trains. You can't use existing railways yet. It's all new and As a saw one quote an again who knows how recent this is but fifty fifty million euros per mile I can believe is what the German consortium is is quoting. The thing is once you get it. Built maintenance is not bad not bad at all because there's not a lot of wear and tear on it as you'll see no friction baby And if you do look into maglev you'll see that it is very much. It's like the the transportation technology of the future that's going on today Especially after looking into Elon Musk's Tube hyperloop thing. I've heard of that so basically along. Musk who is like our good friend. Yeah Hebrew Rich Guy Right. He basically basically just jotted down this idea on a cocktail Napkin and all of a sudden. It's like the new thing. Yeah but It's a an enclosed tube system. That just you put in a little car. Whatever that he's twelve people or something comfortably and you suck all the air out of it? Yeah there's no resistance so you can go really fast. Basically I think it goes about seven hundred miles an hour little under the speed of sound so you can get from the West Coast to the east coast or vice versa. Very very fast. The thing is the construction costs for this are just preposterous. But if it can come along or come down a little more and it will give maglev. a run for its money but if it if maglev can start to really kinda get some traction and get some some lines going it will be the movement of the future for at least a decade or two. Yeah I saw where they're proposing both in the future. Maglev trains that operate inside vacuum tubes. Okay as fast as two thousand miles an hour as crazy right now. They're breaking records. Kurds like three hundred miles an hour. Plus what's the fastest right now So apparently this is kind of mind boggling. Because maglev as again I we realize everybody. We haven't explained what maglev is can here but Maglev the great advantage. It has is that it supposedly supposedly goes faster than the normal steel wheel train apparently TGV train. which is a steel wheel train In Europe they they beat a maglev land speed. Really that was held by the Japanese maglev of about three hundred fifty one miles an hour. I think it went like three sixty. I don't know if I'd feel safe. Yeah I can imagine I was. I was reading a quote from a maglev rider. And they were saying like you can tell you're going really fast. Yeah like on the The bullet train. You must give me so disappointing. 'cause she's taught me how to say it in Japanese so many times that I I don't WanNa butcher it but the bullet train it goes pretty fast like one hundred fifty miles an hour or something but it just looks like everything's a blur. Yeah you don't feel like you're going fast. Apparently in a maglev have it. Goes fast enough to where like you feel like holy cow. We're going three hundred fifty miles an hour well. Our very own parent company did a show world's fastest trains. Yeah and I watched the maglev segment and the dude was in the front room with the driver in there like. Oh we're going three hundred miles an hour now and it's hard to tell on the TV you you know. Exactly how fast going. Because I looked and I was like well. You know looks like about one hundred to me but Yeah I think being on the train and I think the key to not feeling to weird is obviously. You're not being shot like a bullet. You're you're ramping up to that speed so that helps plus if you dressed normally for your chain ride you'll feel less weird to that's right Also hold on one more thing The we're talking very high speeds three hundred and fifty miles an hour. Yeah that's the That's the speed record of a maglev. But they're averaging like two fifty or more. Yeah which means if you if you get these things built. You're going to expand the range of where people can live and commute and go to work every day or tremendously. Yeah So there is a lot of value in creating these maglev 's right. Are we there yet before we do that. Let's just might as well do a message break now. I think it's a good time. We want to tell you about the Subaru love. Promise that's right. We have a Subaru outback back Emily does and we've had two of these now and that we love the company even more because of the Subaru love promised so Subaru has made a commitment by the company and its retailers to do you right by the communities that we all live in and work in and play in and drive Subaru's since two thousand fifteen subaru retailers and the leukemia and Lymphoma Society delivered craft kits and blankets to more than one hundred thousand patients across the nation. Yeah that's right and this past year. Loan more than forty three thousand blankets in over ninety. Five hundred kits were delivered to patients along with messages of hope which is Pretty Nice. It's great to learn more about how Subaru gives back visit Subaru dot com slash. Love Dash. Promise that has sub a are you dot com slash L. O. V. E. Dash P R. o M am I s e all right so now can we get down to brass tacks. Yes let's okay This is kind of confusing because I read a paper in one thousand nine hundred eighty one thousand nine hundred eighty where this guy was saying like. There's a lot of people calling all these different technologies maglev aglet. Yeah there's this is all very early. Stage proposal hasn't been proven yet. But he's saying there's at least seven different kinds of technology here that everyone's is calling maglev that he doesn't they're just different but for the purposes of this podcast. We can get with maglev but we have to point out that there are some really different systems that are in use in being proposed right now and a lot of them have to do with the suspension systems. Yeah I I think what's going on now. There are three pretty much leading competing. Systems right yeah because we should say chuck a maglev train. Gene is a train that uses magnets to float above a track by either centimeter too. I saw one that floats up to a foot off the the track. That's a little scary. It seems a little scary but apparently the higher you go in that that high end of the range the more stable it is all right. Yeah but so the the train is literally not touching the tracks and it floats along in the reason why I can go so fast because there's no friction. No friction the only resistances since his air right and they're super sleek of course yep so even the errors cut down So let's go. Let's go to Germany because they have a system Transrapid it's called. The actually company is called Transrapid International. There's also a transrapid. USA now. I think USA. That's right And the German version is electro magnetic suspension and the way that the guy on the discovery channel show described. It was that electromagnet well when you use electro magnets they're only Magnetized when there's a power source right we love when there's electric city running through exactly so that's important to remember it is and we'll point out. Why later because in the German system The EMS system. It's all about attraction. Shen is not repel magnets repelling each other. It's magnets that are attracted to each other. And the reason that they float is they're basically switching it on and off pulsing the electro magnetic magnet so fast that it creates that hovering attraction. Okay so that's the German version version so okay and apparently this German version. I think they do use repulsive magnets but on the sides for the guidance magnets. Yeah so so to make it hover. They're turning it on an awful lot so it wants to stick but no but stick but no. Yeah there's not a dude on a switch doing it really fast. So it's all programmed onto bit right. They have computers handling And then so this is this this suspension system you're talking about right. The electro magnetic suspension yeah the EMS. words`suspension is Kinda easily overlooked. But in this case we're literally talking about how the train is suspended in mid air above the track in this case case and with the EMS. It's about I think a half a centimeter to a centimeter. It's very close to the to the track. And they used used the electromagnet to attract And they use the guidance magnets which are magnets installed on the side of the train That are along the side of the track to repel magnets along the side of the track to keep the the train from bumping into the guide rails but the requires hires a A computer system that constantly make adjustments to current that's going through these electro magnets to either To either attract the train right to make it flow or to repel it from the sides to adjust it to make sure it never bumps into the rails or the track because if you're going three hundred and fifty miles an hour train s- cuffs the track. You're in big trouble for big trouble. one advantage of this The German system is is that you only need the power on for the section of track that you're using at the time so they literally Will turn on a section of track. The train goes over it and then we'll turn it back off right so very like economically fuel efficient because it's not fuel right our efficient right and it doesn't use fossil fuels in the sense that a normal train does although if you go far enough down the line that electricity has to come from somewhere so ultimately it is coming from bills Kosei but the the efficiency fuel efficiency is incredible compared to a normal train that Burns causal fuels just to move right the guy shoveling coal into a fire. Yeah I should say so. My understanding of the the delivery of electricity. The city to the track is the same for both suspension systems that you propel like that so the whole track is made of electro magnets. Right come on both systems. And you're descending electricity to the electromagnet that are immediately in front of an immediately behind the train. Yeah Angie neatly under. Yeah 'cause you need you need to float the train then you need to propel it right in the way you're propelling. It is the magnets that are just ahead of the train are going to be positive. Yes and so that's going to attract the train meaning it's GonNa pull it forward yet. And then the the magnets behind it are going to be charged that they're negative and they're going to repel the train push so in the front. The magnets are pulling it in the back. The magnets are pushing it and again remember. There's no friction here. It's just air so it doesn't take a whole lot to make this train. Go really really fast just using magnets and they In two thousand and two debuted commercially in Shanghai China a Pretty short run transporting people From airport to airport basically At a speeds it speeds over two hundred and fifty miles an hour so I read the journey. The Nineteen Mile Journey now takes about seven and a half minutes. Yeah as opposed to about an hour and a cab ebb. Yeah and they were going to expand it but That was halted in two thousand eight over radiation fears by people and now it's being proposed as an underground system like to go underground to halt those fears but in two thousand. Ten another high-speed be trained in the area was a non maglev system opened so they basically said well. We probably won't do this We probably won't extend the Shanghai Line now so yeah I heard it's definitely only on hold but I didn't hear that. They decided they weren't going to do it. Well the regular bullet train popped up. And they're like oh well now that we have that we don't need the maglev well. Oh well so Japan scout the other big rival system So the propulsion systems are the same. You use magnets ahead of the train and behind the train to attract or repel it right to push it forward. I believe so sir The suspension systems are what differ in in Germany. You're using magnets to repel it right to attract to attract it in Japan using something called the Meisner effect so basically chuck the Meissner effect is where you take a super cooled superconductor right. Yes I think like liquid helium temperature which is very very very cold and you put it in a magnetic field the magnetic field basically hugs it. It goes around it rather than through it. Okay yes So when you do that the field actually levitated the thing so if you take enough superconductors offers that are at the right temperature and you put them in the presence of magnetic field whole bunch of magnets say on train the the magneto float it will levitated dry. And that's the electrodynamics suspension that. The Japanese are using. So basically you have a tunnel magnetic field tunnel. Yeah that these things are traveling through. Which means that they're they they don't need any extra magnets on the sides or they don't need any on the bottom or extra magnets on the bottom? It's just going to stay put within this bent magnetic field. It's warped to wrap around it. That's right it's never going to drop and it's totally stable. which is the big? That's a big Advantage from what I understand that the Japanese system over the German system. The stability doesn't require a bunch of computers to constantly adjust it and it is just inherently more stable. Because it's not just being held up from the the bottom and then a little on the sides it is wrapped in this basically blanket of an electro magnetic field right It can conduct power power Electricity even when the power is cut off. So that's a definite advantage Although the German system does have like battery backups. It's not like if the power went off the train would just go and stop right but the the German one doesn't doesn't need tires in the Japanese one does yeah because it needs to ramp up to a certain speed in order to you begin the float. It doesn't just start immediately. What is it like eighty eight miles per hour? That's back to the future. Sixty two miles an hour and I think they use liquid nitrogen nitrogen and it's just expensive to super cool these Coils and I think. That's one of the drawbacks. But they're all expensive. They are very expand. None of this. They haven't figured out a cheap way to do any of this. Now there's a proposed line In Japan it's already. It's the one that set the The land speed record for maglev trains. Right it's the JR Tokyo's That's the railway company the J. R. R. Tolkien. It kinda close but it's their line It's supposedly is already in operation. I read somewhere that it's moved like a million people already. But they have a proposed posed line that they wanNA open by twenty twenty seven and it's from Tokyo Nagoya and then they want to extend that from Tokyo to Asaka by twenty forty five and they're talking like it's like a fifty billion dollar project and I think that's just the first line. Yeah that's sounds about right but the reason that it probably will happen is they're they're Basing all this on data showing that people are going to keep moving to Japan in Osaka. So they're gonNA we have customers and they're not relying on any government money they have so much money they're just going to fund it themselves is is privately funded yet another con though the Japanese version. Is that if you have a pacemaker. You don't WanNa get on that train. Yeah because that magnetic field will Wreak havoc in. You probably won't live. It will shut you down. It will shut you down And then there's the induct track and that is another type of EDS system. Which is the Japanese system Except that they use room temperature magnets and from what I can tell. This is as close to just the the whole thing of two magnets regular magnets opposing each other. And they're just gonNA use that right. Yeah like it's as close to we get as you going out to the store and getting two magnets in putting their like polls against each other so that they repel. Yeah there's actually something called Hall Baca Ray which is a way to just lineup. The magnets in certain directions so that their polls are facing north South East or West And when you put them together in a clump basically the the magnetic field below the magnets doubles the magnetic field on the top magnet. Cancels one another out right so so you have your extra strong may magnetic field that can produce this meisner effect basically Without the supercooled superconductor. Yeah and these aren't even electro-magnetic. So I don't think they just magnets permanent room temperature magnets crazy yeah There are three Designs right now. The induct track track one two and three One is high speed too. Slow speed in three is heavy. Load slow speed so I guess just frightening stuff back and forth. I guess so. They did this in London at one point but then shut it down like in the eighties. They had a maglev train. Yeah just very slow moving like it. It might have been an airport type situation and I looked up the one here in Atlanta the new Airport train of thought it might have been mag left but of course it's not it's we'll stupid wheels Although they stay well they have proposed. Went Atlanta's one of the city's That's trying to get maglev going between Atlanta Lanta Chattanooga and there's one proposed between DC and Baltimore. Lay in Las Vegas. Yeah L. A. IN VEGAS And I think one from Pittsburgh to someplace but I'm not sure exactly where I saw that one too I don't remember it might have been DC. They said he's Berg Philly. Yeah we'll hold on. We're getting ahead of ourselves man. We'll know these are just proposals. And they're having a hard time getting the funding they need for any of these to really take off right because it's expensive expensive. It is chuck. How about how about a message break? Hey let's do it okay. Hello stuff you listeners. Do you want a new year's resolution that's easy to keep yes resolved to help protect your identity and personal info with lifelock identity dimity theft protection lifelock alert you to potential threats to your identity and they see more than what you can see by just monitoring your own credit like your Info on the dark web and that's a big deal. Yeah and if you have a problem. LIFELOCK'S US-BASED RESTORATION specialists. Know the steps to take to help resolve your case after all only one in five identity theft victims who had accounts opened in their names discovered their theft through a bank or credit card company. And of course no one can prevent all identity theft after monitor all transactions at all businesses but lifelock is the new year's resolution. That's not only easy to keep. It'll help you protect what you've worked. So Oh hard for get lifelock for up to twenty five percent off your first year go to lifelock dot com slash stuff that's lifelock dot com slash stuff for up to twenty five percent percent off all right so This whole idea of going three hundred and fifty miles an hour through space even without friction is Awesome it is awesome it can also be deadly. They've they've already been maglev accidents. Yeah the one in Germany was a little distressing because in two thousand six. It crashed crashed into a repair car that was accidentally left on the track. Like in. This is a test to see like everything should have been. Yeah Yeah Yeah like. Why did you leave a car on the track period so they actually people died in that one? The train was going. At least one hundred. And twenty miles an hour when it obstruct car so it must have just been getting up to speed. I Guess Yeah but yeah twenty. Nine people died on that one. There's another one in Shanghai on that line. That is the operation. Yeah that was just a fire though. Yeah and I don't want to make light of that but it wasn't like a crash or an instant like that. Yeah I'm just glad no no one got hurt exactly and this is breaking news through. This was in the paper today as we record it in real time okay. The Washington Post said that Northeast Northeast. Maglev everyone's getting on the maglev game. because I mean it really is a great idea. Yeah it's just really really expensive but if you can get up and running it's awesome. I mean I imagine in literally in one hundred years. They'll be a lot of this as major transportation. Sure you know but not want but as of today November fourth northeast. Maglev is has raised fifty million dollars in private funds. They can build five inches ATTRAC- yeah exactly and they are trying to get the Washington Baltimore leg going with private funding. Because the government's not putting any any money for this week. We'll see it in our lifetime. They think ten billion between DC and Baltimore. Yeah Although they're not they don't have a firm cost yet but I wonder wonder how long it would take his. I mean that's not even that long of a drive anyway. Yeah agreed maybe ten minutes which I mean if you live in Baltimore and work in DC. I'm sure that would be extremely attractive. Yeah that's true I don't know about the Atlanta to Chattanooga thing who cares yeah right you know people in Chattanooga Obi psyched I guess is they could get to the airport like thirty minutes. Yeah I guess not dissing Chattanooga Gathering Pan for gold. I saw this This AH discovery show video from a discovery show to And it had our good friend. Michio Kaku. Oh yeah and he was talking about a train train bullet train that could get you from one side of the world to the other in an hour. Wow and the way that it would do that is to go through the middle of the earth. Basically you would have to create this to basically like Alon Musk's idea you create a tube you evacuate all of the air out of it so that there's no resistance whatsoever and you just drop in the force of gravity takes you up to about eighteen thousand miles an hour. Yeah and then once you make it to the center and out the other side you gravity starts to work against you so it slows you down so Within an hour you should be able to make it from one side of the earth to the other but as Dr Kaku put put it. It's going to be very difficult. Getting through the center of the yeah that's the hell of all these theoretical ideas come up with it like it's not even even remotely possible and he'd probably say like this is is talking about what they asked me to talk about like. Doesn't McDonald's one day when I said that I was waiting in line at McDonald's yeah so what else you got. I got nothing announced. Don't maglev wave of the future. We've got we have a standing bet now. We will see a maglev train in operation that we can ride on while we're both alive. That's my bet. You say now that we will like I mean if we went to Shanghai who could do it right now so I feel like I just want my bent out that you're GONNA pay. I got here in the United States. Okay Within our lifetime. which for me is going to be about twenty five years or both still healthy enough to to ride it okay? I'll I'll take that bet okay. let's see if you guys want to learn more about maglev. You can type that word in the search BAR HOUSE DOT com and since I said Search part it's time for a listener. Mail try this is I'm going to call this opportunity for students filmmaking students to get your film on Hey guys who worked for nonprofit antiquity. Now which is dedicated to raising awareness of the importance of preserving our culture cultural heritage by demonstrating how antiquities legacy influences and shapes our lives.

CBD: Weed Wonder Drug?
"Hi, I'm Wendy's. India listening to science versus from Gimblett media. This is the show where we hit facts against four twenty. On today's show CBD. Cvt is a chemical that's extracted from cannabis, and it's all the rage right now. So I'm at a very busy coffee shop in Brooklyn to try it out. We are in the hot. Of Williams bag. There's lots of plants around a CIA, the clientele is Brooklyn fancy. I kind of looked like bankers who at some point in their lives wanted to be screenwriters. And I'm here with senior produce Caitlyn Sewri at one point in her life wanted to do hard hitting journalism subtle geometry in the woodwork here. Have you noticed? But she's now stuck with me talking to Albury friendly barista will who walked through this new CBD craze auto CBD stuff. I feel like the most open minded people you'll ever meet here Williamsburg. Honestly, we'll told us that most of his customers at CBD to take the edge off if you feel stress on your shoulders kind of helps a drop a little bit. Because people think that you're gonna go on this like you four adventure. Have you see it's like helps you feel a little bit more relaxed. It's like getting a ten minute massage like, a nice quickey, and you're in and you're out but online people claim this chemical can do. More than a massage. They say it reduces pain helps with sleep makes you lose weight and can even clear up acne. He's held the menu at the coffee. Shop solved its benefits this high potency tincture, reduce stress, anxiety, pain, inflammation, and promotes balance of mind and body. And so we'll told us that he likes to add to a bunch of stuff, including his coffee. Get your boost. The also feel the more relaxed the same time and his smoothies. So good and his little shots of juice tolliday shots. This all sounds very chill. But this is a cannabis extract is it legal. I believe so I mean, we're selling it. So this legal. It's everywhere you see everyone wins New York City in general. So I'm assuming so so we looked into this and CPI is exactly legal. It's a schedule one drug the feds put it in the same category as heroin, but the is some gray area here and the Drug Enforcement Administration. The day told us that they generally not going after people who using CB. So I'm gonna do it in the coffee. All right. So I'd say do a lot of cash Milkin CBD dumb. Sold as my favorite. I got you. K? He goes my first CD. Initial thoughts. Tastes like, you know, what I am a massive net. And I haven't had that often. But it does taste to be like. Like, a we're going to be very towed out outta whack today about to have the best day of your life and all sorts of right here. So it wasn't the best day of my life. But maybe I did feel a little less anxious. CBD taste test. Really got me thinking what exactly you see be? And how did we get here? We're trendy barista is casually adding a cannabis extract to my morning coffee. Will it tends out that the story about how this thing got? So huge has nothing to do with Brooklyn hipsters. It was actually a matter of life and death. And that story is coming out. Just after the break. This episode of science versus is brought to you by the twenty eight teen Subaru share the love of event when you buy or lease a new Subaru between now and January second super will donate two hundred and fifty dollars to a charity close to your heart. This year super in its retailers pondering with over six hundred seventy hometown charities Subaru is also partnering with the ASPCA make away she meals on wheels. And the national park foundation later in the show you'll hear from Subaru retailers Carrie Hamilton from bead more Subaru in bead, more Nebraska. She'll tell us how she chooses to support. The Subaru share the love event Dylan mall. Visit your local Subaru retailers. Go to Subaru dot com slash sham that Subaru dot com slash sham. Welcome back today. We're tackling CBD a substance found in pot and we're starting with the unlikely tale of how it went from being virtually unknown to becoming the coolest chemical around. Sorry, hydrogen, peroxide. Okay. And how stories a long way from trendy Williams bed. Coffeeshops it was two thousand and six and in a small town in Colorado at the foothills of the rocky mountains page figgy had just given birth to twin girls. Everything was perfect. They were born healthy. Everything was awesome. And they were joy page was settling into life with her two little girls. But then something happened to one of the twins, Charlotte. When she was only three months old getting her dressed, and my husband was was changing her diaper. I believe getting her dressed, and she started shaking, and she was blue and convulsing. That was terrifying is absolutely terrifying to see your healthy child that way. Page and her doctors hope that this was just a one off sometimes babies have seizures and they never happen again. But that wasn't what happened here. Charlotte started having seizures again, and again, and sometimes they went hours, I think her longest was was four hours long. And so they just started coming. He's went on. And it wasn't getting better paid sometimes videos of the seizures for her doctors. And you can see Charlotte's entire body shaking and her eyes rolling back in a head. It's okay. Honey. Here. Doctors gave Charlotte all these meds to stop the seizures page thinks it was about fifteen different drugs and nothing worked retried everything. We tried everything by the time she was two and a half three years old everything and some of them multiple times shallot was eventually diagnosed with a rare form of epilepsy, cold Dravida syndrome. It has no cure. And it's really scary. A lot of kids with your as die before they ten years old. And Charlotte's case was bad. She was on oxygen. She's fed through a tube. She didn't make eye contact and I just felt like keeping her body alive in between a seizure every thirty minutes by the time. Charlotte was five doctors will already planning for the west page signed do not resuscitate order fish, Charlotte, which meant the hospital wouldn't revive her. If she stopped breathing page said Charlotte was having so many seizures that she was hardly conscious. And she told Caitlin sorry. I'll senior producer about one particularly terrible night. She never slept at that at that point in her life, and and so sh- her, and I were in the kitchen downstairs in the kitchen, and I was just holding her in rocking her, and and she was screaming, and then she fell into a seizure, and this time the seizure instead of going on and on for an hour or two it just stopped and she went lifeless in my arms, and then I just started doing CPR right there. But that's rare that that works. So it was kind of it wasn't like come on in Charlotte. Get through this. It was it was me. Saying goodbye, we always feeling like at this point. It's better if she does. Absolutely. It was it was I wanted her to be at peace. I was saying it's okay. I love you. It's going to be okay. And just to let go and and is hoping she would at that point. It was just so bad. You're just hoping whatever happens after you die go there. And it's okay. And I was giving her my blessing to die. Charlotte didn't die that night. But page new she may only have a few weeks to live, and it was clear. She was in pain sue page started hunting for something that could help her die as peacefully and painlessly as possible. And page while Brin Colorado, medical marijuana was legal and cancer patients, we using it for their pain. So she thought maybe marijuana could help Charlotte. I know that sounds crazy. I'm not this way out there hippie mo-. It was just like whatever whatever works page. Started researching marijuana trying to figure out what strains might be good for Charlotte's pain. And she found something unexpected page stumbled across some small studies from decades ago about a particular chemical in marijuana CBD as it's known in the literature Canada. Dial. Now, this chemical didn't seem to get you high. But it could to something else. Something potentially amazing for Charlotte in these small studies CPT looked like it could prevent seizures so page dives into the research to find out everything she can about CBD she called scientists from around the world. I called everybody all day. They could hear her seizing in my arms on the phone. And it turned out that very few researches knew anything at all about CBD and sieges the science was kind of flimsy, but page had nothing to lose. So she decided to try it on Charlotte. Next step finding marijuana with high levels of CBD. And this turned out to be hotter than you might think. There wasn't a big market for that kind of weighed. I went to every dispensary. I called every person. I remember my last dispenser. I visited I had called them. They said we've got this stuff. It doesn't get you. High doesn't get you high at all. And I said that sounds really promising. So I went down there cloud of smoke. You could see the smoke coming out of the Bank room that smoked it. They had smoked the last little bit of this that they had. They wanted to sue. They're like, yeah. You know, it really doesn't get you high. And I just felt like I'm done. I'm done with this whole dumb with all of this. And I quit and that moment. Yeah. Thanks to these bozos at the dispensary pages shot at getting CBD for Charlotte. Went up in smoke and page thought you know, what I give up. This is never going to happen. But then the phone rang one of those people I called called me. And he said, I got this guy. I'm gonna send them to your house. He's a pot grower. And and he knows some stuff that might interest you, Mike. Now, I'm done. I quit today. Thank you so much and the doorbell rings the guy on the phone had given pages address to the puck grow. And now the guy was on her doorstep, and he was about to completely change Charlotte's life that man that came to my door that day was Joel Stanley Joel Stanley. She was nice, but you could tell I was the puck guy. Here's another damn pot grower. Right. But then we started talking, and it quickly turned into her realizing that we had exactly what she was looking for Joe who kind of looks like a lost WinCo Voss twin had grown a strain of cannabis with tons of CB Daynet. He did it for his small medical marijuana business that Joel had with his brothers. In fact, they all call this strain. He pees disappointment. Because it didn't. Get you high. So Joel Stoute's telling page all of this and then right in front of him. Charlotte has a seizure SUV Eylandt. Just this uncontrollable shaking is kind of rolled back in the head. And these these parents like page figgy they're so used to it. They'll continue the conversation while you're kind of sitting there and shocked you look over by the door. And there's there's a bag packed for the hospital. That's that's how these folks live. Joe was a bit freaked out though. And he wasn't sure about giving his pot two five year olds Shaalan. So he talked to his brothers about it since they will run the business together brothers had a bit of a response like mine like wait a minute. Wait a minute. You wanna give some of our canvas to a five year old who's about to die? Hold on a second gel and his brother Josh told us how stressful making this decision was his Josh we had that conversation. Do you? Remember that was right. That was what we said what if? She were to pass on from a teacher right after taking you know, this by coincidence. We talked about, you know, who would get more jail time. You're me or Jesse or John Jesse and John van more Stanley brother's biz seven in total, and yes, they names all begin with Jay. And now these brothers had to decide if they were gonna go out on a limb to help a mum that only just met. They did some serious thinking and even spoke to Charlotte's doctors who gave them the go-ahead after all these docs, didn't have any good options left. The brothers ultimately decided to help they were juice the CBD down to an oil, and then page gave it to I little go. And that was the moment she stopped seizing. She just stopped. Yep. She's having a seizure every half hour. She didn't seize for a week at fast page thought. Now, this competency day. I didn't believe it. I I honestly didn't I don't mean. Like, I was astounded. When I mean is I didn't believe it was working but weeks months went by and while Charlotte sieges didn't go away entirely. The difference was huge page says Charlotte went from not talking and being fed Vira feeding tube to running around with their siblings. She feeds herself. No, she's started school. She walks. She rides a bike. She can talk. And so she's just a kid running around, you know, she's special needs. But she's has a life again. It's just a total one eighty. Jemison high. Sure. The mummy. The Stanley brothers ended up naming this CV off the little Charlotte. Instead of disappointment may cold, it Charlotte's web. And this is where things really started taking off CB day and the Stanley brothers wants the epilepsy. Community got would of what CBD could do for Charlotte, desperate families with no other medical options wanted to get some before Charlotte story went viral the Stanley brothers only had a supply for about fifty people soon. They had a waiting list of fifteen thousand we would have people who would find out where we lived where I personally lived in knock on the door to explain to me why their child needed to be moved up on the waiting list, and why they were worse than than another os impossible to keep up with any of it. It was so heavy since shallots story. Scientists have run several clinical trials testing if CBD can help with some kinds of epilepsy, and he can not in all kids. But it has a big enough affect that the FDA approved a CBD base drug VCR. And it just hit the shelves. And while the epilepsy community was getting very excited about CB day. The internet also got a hold of it. They were tales around the web of this. Great new chemical that didn't just cure epilepsy. But also aches and pains demand. But the stuff was skyrocketing. And the Stanley brothers foster became one of the biggest CBD supplies in America. I mean, there are millions of consumers now, right? Some portion of those are are are reporting experiencing amazing results for one reason or another and people are buying it for all sorts of things like anxiety. That's the number one reason we see people buying no, then number two people are saying sleep. And then also some people are using that have cancer some people using that have Parkinson's Alzheimer's, rheumatoid arthritis lupus too long when it's Paltrow's groups started spiking cocktails with CBD and Joe Rogan was using CBD lotion he's injuries. And these claims of really snowballed just last year some websites where even suggesting that CBD could treat cancer the Stanley brothers got in trouble with the FDA linked to a website like this. Then more careful now, but still Josh is Kane on the powers of CB day. He wants to see people taking it every day like a vitamin. We'd like to see this in everyone's medicine cabinet as a as a therapeutic nutritional therapeutic. Okay. So CBD arrived on the scene as almost a miracle cure for some types of epilepsy. And now it's exploded into this phenomenon where people using it to treat just about anything. So after the break, what can science tell us about this chemical? We'll see be live up to the hype. That's coming up. This episode of science is brought to you by the twenty eighteen Subaru share the love of event. Here's how it works. When you purchase a new Subaru between now and January second Subaru will donate two hundred fifty dollars to one of four national charitable partners of your choice off you can follow carry Hamilton's lead. And support a local charity. Sponsored by your local Subaru deal. I'm with geared more Subaru Bellevue, Nebraska, which is. I found out that carries family has deep roots in the community. And this rich legacy means that her work is more than just a job. My whole. My whole hair every day. I think about what we do. Here actions are decisions and measure what my family stood for for hundred years. Did you ever imagine? When you were growing up. Did you did you know, you were going to go into the family business? Well, I shall worker. But I think you can do great things thing business owner, and especially being a Subaru business owner, certainly a business very much better community, and we care what happens here, and what happens here carrying you that she wanted her share the love of enter nations to support elementary schools in her community. So she chose the Bellevue public school foundation. These are the most vulnerable. Citizens in our community. These little kids need help H school can use their grant from Subaru in the way that best suits their needs. One of the school wanted carpet covered their playground. Another school wanted to washer dryer because unfortunately, they do have kids that come to school sometimes with foiled. And this washer and dryer help maintain their dignity. This is one example of more than six hundred seventy hometown charities that a part of the Subaru Shantou love event when you purchase a new Subaru through the end of the you'll end up with a cop and healthy a force for good to lend more. Visit your local Subaru retail or go to Subaru dot com slash share that Subaru dot com slash sham. Welcome back before the break. We had the story of shallot. Feeding the go whose recovery from severe epilepsy whipped up a frenzy around CB day. And now people say that CBD can help with all kinds of things from pain to depression and anxiety and even clearing up acne. And it seems kind of crazy that CBD could do all these things, but the industry and CBD fans say that they have science on their side. Dr. Josh they say that these extract can do all the stuff because of a complicated system in the human body that interacts with CB day, and it's called the Endo canal annoyed system cannabinoid system. The Endo can have annoyed system is thought to play a role in a bunch of things like regulating our immune system and even influencing our motions. And it does this through a network of Recep decides that found through. How brain body now? CBD advocates say that the chemical has this amazing ability to into these receptive sites. Like a key into a lock like when of Paltrow to of China. We have receptors in our physiology for CBD, this is a really big deal that we have these receptors in our body that directly bind the plant. They say that by interacting with this complex system. CBD can make you feel bad out, reduce your anxiety and dampened down inflammation and speaking to the Stanley brothers. They told us that CBD binds to these receptors he's Joe so there's much more to understand what we do know is that let's say CBD for the CB two receptor site does fit like locking key all over the internet. You hear these basic idea, and it really adds scientific legitimacy to using CBD for all sorts of things. The only problem is this story, the lock and the key. Day. It doesn't seem to be true. Yes. Scientists at this all sorts of ways, and they're like dude CBD is not binding to those receptors in the Endo cannabinoid system as researches put it in a review papa- beside DEA, quote has now been largely dismissed and quite the truth is we don't know. What's CB day is doing we talked about this with Ken Hutchison? A professor and you're a scientist at the university of Colorado. So we don't even know the mechanism yet in terms of how CD works in the brain. Right. I mean, there's some maybe some hints Miller in animals, but even that is is pretty spun. That is kind of crazy. We we don't we really don't even like how how it would be possible as totally crazy. So it doesn't look like CB is latching onto these receptors. It could be affecting the Endo can have annoyed system in some other way. Maybe not. It's one of the many possibilities. There's just a lot science hasn't figured out yet. And while many scientists, including can't do think that CBD is doing something and shows promise largely because it's helping kids like Charlotte the research is so new that other than epilepsy. We've hardly got any clinical trials here as a few encouraging studies on pain a little on mental health. And he's what can't said when Caitlin asked him about the research on anxiety. What's the most convincing study used saying that day could help with anxiety? So you know, I mean, honestly that there haven't been any commencing. This is this is the problem. This is where rat there haven't been any convincing studies yet. And I think we are waiting for that convincing evidence that that actually does something helpful for people with things ICTY. And it seems like people who want science on CBS will be waiting for a little while. And this isn't just because science takes. Time in the case of day. It has another hoop to jump CB is a schedule one drug. And that means if Kent or any other scientists wants money from the US government to study it it's really tough. There's a bunch of rules here. They can't just buy online. And then study it's affects he. Yeah. So even though I just had some day in my morning coffee. Scientists we can't touch the stuff, right? Doesn't matter. How many dispensaries are here in boulder? Colorado doesn't matter that the state legalized it, you know, whatever six years ago, that's kind of bunkers. That's frustrating. Oh, it's totally frustrating. Right. Because you know, even talking to you a little discouraged as I realize more and more how how little we know. Right. But at the day, we're going to see, you know, again, maybe it works for some things and the list is not too long after all what all this means is that when people seeing the praise. Of CBD for all sorts of conditions. We really don't know how this chemical is working. And we also don't know if it's working because some of what people feeling could be due to an entirely different phenomenon. That's right. Our old friend rhymes with Louis. Cbo say we've me plus see. Even Joel Stanley who made the original CBD concoction for Charlotte acknowledges, the placebo might be playing a role in the CBD mania. Is there some placebo because of all of the hype and the news stories coming out about CBD for this that and the other reason the people talking on Facebook and Twitter and Instagram is there some placebo going on out there -absolutely there is every time something good pops up. But that doesn't we shouldn't detract from from all the people that are receiving genuine benefit whether it's drastic benefit or they just feel a little bit better. And that's a fair point. If you all using CB, and you feeling better. That's great. But before you start adding CB T, A morning, coffee and evening, cocktail, there's something you should think about how do you know, what is actually Emesa be products? Because nowadays his scores of them on the market. And it's not like. Birth control. I mean, this stuff isn't tightly regulated. And this is something that Mallory Loughlin a clinical research. Scientists has thought a lot about you know, I have more faith in what's in a candy bar than I have in something that people are using to treat medical conditions, primarily mental health and neurological conditions. That's insane. Mallory just did a study with her colleagues from the institute for research on Canabal, noise, they analyzed what was inside ova AT CBD products. And so what did they find? Oh, the overwhelming majority. We're not accurately labeled seventy percent had labels that didn't match the stuff inside. Yeah. Seventy percent. They either had too much too little CB, Dan them. And while that's not great. What is perhaps more consenting is that one in five of the products had some cheeky THC in them. This is the psychoactive chemical in Wade that gets people high and gives them the munchies. It's probably not something you want in your coffee before work unless you're running a billion dollar electric car empire. It seriously. Mallory told us about this one report of a few kids who are acting funny after taking CBD for epilepsy. The doctors tested them and they were positive for teach. So they were they were intoxicated. They will. Hi, they were. Hi. And they're the parents thought they were giving him CD. They thought they were trading. They're giving them something non intoxicating. So they weren't expecting their kid to get high. And. Yeah. Yeah. THC and you see it can happen. Now. One thing to note about Malary's research is that her tame got funding from the wheat industry, but the findings do hold up when the FDA did a similar analysis few years ago. They also found a few products of CBD had some wacky Tabacchi snacking. Okay. So that's one risk getting high. When you rob a not bay, and you're just getting CB day is that faith well, while we haven't followed people who use in the long term from. The studies we do have they have serious side effects in the clinical trials. Some people got diarrhea nausea fell tired when I took it. I did get sleepy. I had a nice nap. CBD more like CB's Z jas. Anyway, there is also evidence that sometimes CBD can interact with other medications things like antidepressants and some blood thinners from what we're seeing clinically. We're not seeing anything. Too bad. I guess I'd say, but again, we don't know there's not enough studies on this. Oh, you know. Time will tell but. Yeah, folks, should definitely be aware at the end of the day. CB does seem pretty safe, but it's still early days, sir. It's tough to know fish oil. So when it comes to CBD does it stack up. Well, CBD can really help some people with epilepsy, which is pretty amazing.
