God Designed Wellness
"With everybody. How god kind of transition do you. How did it start that you went from. I mean obviously. I think people can. They can understand even relate to going from being a stay at home mom and then as they grew you worked into a career but then how do you take this career that you worked hard to become a teacher and now you literally transition into health and wellness kind of walk us through that journey in kind of what god was. What was he planting seeds along the way or did it happen. Suddenly i would love to hear that. It was a very gradual thing again. I grew up Which you know in southern california. It's the weather's great. People eat quite differently than they do. In the mid west gives me in the midwest and my husband and my kids. And i had gone to visit family in north carolina for christmas and this was still back in the day where you took pictures and you develop them and you and my sister sent me a picture and i looked at of course. I glanced at everyone else. And then i did what most of us do. I narrowed in on myself. And i thought oh my goodness what have i done and i was probably at that time. A good thirty to forty pounds heavier and it was like how did that happen and again the picture a picture doesn't lie and that's when you notice that and about that time i think i was starting to ease into menopause and then it wasn't but a couple years that my oldest daughter decided to go back out to california to san diego to college and little by little she'd come home each semester. Erin summer and say. I'm not eating this anymore. We don't eat that and then it was like okay. Whatever and i it was milk and then it was pork and then it was you know she was suddenly paying more attention to the shampoos and the ingredients in them so if anything my daughter without even realising it starting to see her be more aware of what she put in her body as well as on our body made me start to think again. You're i was starting. Menopause feeling tired extra way. No energy sleep and so really. It was a combination of all of those things that i realized i needed to go back to the basics cooking meals taking walks doing more things and started to see my health improve and then it seems like you know friends would make comments or ask questions and so i became sort of the go to a little bit for people. How do i do this or what are you eating. That looks really good and out. That was it and it was something that i loved talking about. I love learning about. And so i think just was a natural progression and i love teaching. I like talking to people making connections so it just was a natural fit so then i signed up or a year long a certification program to be a health coach. That's how it all started. It's awesome and i think that It's a really beautiful picture of how It's kind of full circle. I feel like you know we. We don't not necessarily. I mean some families. Just it's cultural the way that they eat and And so it's even harder to break those habits but but for some people they started off kind of you know everything was even homegrown for some people and then you just get busy and you get in that phase of life and then it then it just becomes a habit of convenience until something happens. It's interesting because i feel like people take their health for granted until their health is not health anymore

World in much better place to fight desert locust scourge UNs FAO
"It's been described as a biological time bomb the worst upsurge in decades this time last year. Swans of desert locusts started to spread across countries in the horn of africa devastating crops and people's livelihoods. Fa yours emergency campaign appealed for urgent action to avoid a looming locust plague and humanitarian crisis. Now one year on. I'll we winning the fight. I put that question to senior locust. Forecasting officer keith pressman case when we spoke a year ago or it was just as the desert locust swarms with starting to invade the horn of africa. Could you briefly sum up the events of the last you well. A lot has happened in the past year. The last time we spoke a year ago swarms or just invading kenya in the horn of africa. They're spreading through other countries in the region. And since that time now there has been several generations a breeding. So what that means is that the locust numbers had just increased further and this is mainly due to exceptionally good weather. Conditions for the locus. The the problem did not remain only in the horn of africa but last summer there is a very important threat to west africa. Fortunately that did not occur but there was an additional extension of the current upsurge in southwest asia so in countries like iran pakistan and india. Fortunately the end of the summer. I very intensive efforts of those countries. The app surge was brought under control there but it still remains in the greater horn of africa. So that means them. Kenya's mali ethiopia dan and yemen. And that's that's what we're facing now again this year. And it's very interesting because you know when we last spoke a year ago. I mentioned swarms invading kenya. Well that's what they're doing again now and they started invading kenya from the north from eastern ethiopia from central somalia. I'm just before christmas and this was predicted so similarly to what happened last year again is not a surprise. We were expecting this and are we in a better position now. Are we better place to fight the desert lucasville. Much much better. You know last year at this time. We're in a very very precarious situation. We had you know. Huge numbers of locust swarms had developed and were moving in invading countries. That had not seen logos for seventy years. You know such as kenya other countries. That was a worse situation and more than a quarter of a century. They just simply were not prepared to respond to such a large scale invasion. They weren't trained. They had no resources. I'm no vehicles no spray equipment. No pesticides no aircraft. You know no logisticians. You know all of the elements components that you need in order to invoke control campaign so we were really. Let's say trying to catch up very quickly. We had no funding you know. Let's say desperate collectively desperate. I should say and the country's nfl. We're obviously we're scrambling doing the best. We could have that time but it was not enough we had to really really upscale and that's what's been achieved so now here we are in january twenty twenty one. It means we have everything in place. Yes we do have shortages of funding to keep those operations going in. This is extremely critical. But at least we're not at the stage of having to look for aircraft or having having to order equipment from abroad and wait for it to be delivered. All of the countries have those Elements in place. The faa ledge. Emergency response has seen incredible. International support including the mobilization of funds to tackle the small towns and prevent a humanitarian crisis always succeeding in the fight against desert. Lucas that show. We are succeeding. Yes if we had not been what we've been doing for the past year we would have seen a play by now. You know swarms from west africa to india from the equator to the mediterranean. We don't see that so. I think that that's confirmation that we are succeeding. We have probably less locust swarms than we did a year ago. A doesn't mean that you know we can sit back and relax but you know. There's a lot of work to do but i think the response as you mentioned from the international community has been exceptionally good globally. A more than two point. Eight million hectares retreated and twenty twenty. And that's an extraordinary achievement. These efforts of course they've saved enormous amounts of crop production an estimated two point seven million tons of crops or save last year. That's enough you know to feed eighteen million people for an entire year. The cost of that That was saved is something around eight hundred million dollars and you put that into balance with you. Know what did it costs to save that production we received last year. One hundred and ninety four million dollars so with that investment were able to save you know eight hundred million dollars or the food in additional able to to protect and safeguard one point two million households their livelihood. It's so you know our desert. Locusts extremely devastating. Obviously the response in the pasture has been exceptionally good. And of course you have to remember. We're competing against other emergencies. Such as covid nineteen indeed twenty twenty was a particularly challenging year. What can we expect for the will. The current upsurge continuing the problem. Is that the weather. Continues to favor the locus and you know. In the past locus upsurges lukas plagues they collapse because of two factors on because of the human intervention. You know the control operations everything that. We're trying to do to reduce locus numbers and a failure in the weather at and so far we're saying the former i'm we see those upskilled control operations working very well. I mean more than twenty one aircraft or an operation in eastern africa. But we haven't seen the break in the weather. We had again an extraordinary event last month in the horn of africa. Right exactly where the locust were we had a cyclone in december. Cyclones don't occur in the horn of africa december. But this is the second year in a row where we've had that so until we see you know kind of a break in the weather. And what does that mean. It means a failure of seasonal rains essentially or very unusually cold temperatures or strange wins that might carry all the locus into the ocean and where they would paris but until we see that we still have the challenge to to manage. This locus upsurge and try to to reduce impacts on food security and people's livelihood so for this year twenty twenty one and basically from now until summertime. We need eighty million dollars and the majority of this would be spent on maintaining those essential control operations by air and by ground as well as protecting the livelihoods. That was cave craftsman. Faa's seniors locust forrcasting.

Boston Red Sox Take A Closer Look At Corey Kluber
"There is more activity coming out of boston as well. They are rumored to be interested in several free agents and buster olney. espn's buster only reported that quote. The red sox have talked a ton of possibilities are preparing for a series of moves before the start of spring training and quote so move. Benintendi isn't the only move. That's on the mind for the red sox There's a couple of other names here. That have been linked right hander. Jayco dharavi starting pitcher. He he's up and down when it comes to his career. He was in minnesota for some time then down to texas but professional arm to come in and give them quality innings veteran relief pitcher. Alex colom formerly of the white sox in his point eight. Era from twenty twenty now. There are some concerns when you dive in a bit. Deeper into sabermetrics there is a dip in velocity and hard hit contact has increased. But you know it is a results oriented. Sport and alex colom was still fantastic for a the white sox this past summer. You have former cy. Young winner corey kluber pitching for teams on wednesday january thirteenth. So you guys may know how that workout went by the time. You're listening to this He's gonna throw about twenty five thirty pitches and it seems to be about two thirds of major league. Baseball teams will be in attendance. So the main goal is to show teams. He's healthy show. Teams that velocity is still there because he's basically missed. The entirety of the last two seasons with multiple injuries forearm torn right Throwing muscle a lot of different things going on with kluber but he could be a perfect. You know bowe bilo free agent option for not only boston but a couple of other different teams out there and the last guy the red sox have been tagged to is actually outfielder yasuko week. You know puig's been in and out of baseball and could find himself as a cheap option out there in the outfield for boston and a lot of people don't like i actually don't mind him. I liked the energy place with. I like the passion that he brings to the yard ultimately he's probably not the performer. He once was but he'll give you a professional at bats. Play hard for you. And i do think that people in boston would certainly like
Walmart will test grocery deliveries to a smart cooler on customers' doorsteps
"That I really like. And e think this is going to lead to further adoption of grocery deliveries they're going to and they're doing this just in Arkansas is this test But they're gonna put smart coolers on customers doorsteps so that you know when they deliver your produce and your milk and things like that. It's not sitting out in the hot sun. I like this idea, and it shows and demonstrates that perhaps grocery delivery has legs. Yeah, I think it's something that's interesting there. You know, doing this. They're testing it just in their hometown of Bentonville, Arkansas to begin with, So it's It's gonna be a small pilot program that they are starting here, but It's something that I do think it is interesting to deal with some of the problems that you have with grocery delivery of, namely Hey, let's say that you had specified a certain time that you wanted things delivered in they don't come there. If you're sitting there, and you know the summer anywhere in the United States, and you got milk sitting out for an hour to in the hot summer sun That's not a very good thing. So you know this is an interesting little pilot program that they're starting up. I don't know if this becomes, you know the standard necessarily, but Think for customers that are, you know, post pandemic gonna be heavy users of grocery delivery. This is something that can put some of those fears about spoiled food to rest. If you're using delivery, as opposed to go into the store and picking up on your own, do you guys remember, Like two years ago, we covered this on the show where Wal Mart was actually looking into Having their delivery drivers have access to your fridge so they would do with some sort of a smart lock, and I hated that. And I think that's why these smart coolers. Now, the next step because nobody wanted somebody walking through their house, even if it was on camera. Yeah, No, I just I'm curious that it'll be very interesting to see there's been, you know, Talk about zoom technology and face mask. Do you think about all the things that have happened? As a result of covert and grocery delivery was a big one, right? Does that continue and take a lot of investors are trying to figure that out as well. Does that trend continue? Post Cove it when we get this thing under control, I don't know the answer. Could tell you anecdotally and I'm just talking

FBI report warned of "war" at Capitol a day before fatal riot
"Next guest is reporting in the washington. Post that the day before the attack on the capital. An fbi office in virginia issued a warning about plans for a war at the capitol a war prior to this reporting in the washington post. The fbi claimed that it had no indication at all. The riot was planned. Washington post reviewed an internal f. b. i. Document that warned quote an online thread discussed specific calls for violence to include stating be ready to fight. Congress needs to hear glass breaking doors being kicked in get violent. Stop calling this a march or rally or protest go. They're ready for war. We get our president or we die nothing else will achieve this goal. Only eight days left to strengthen security at the capitol for the inauguration of joe biden and kamala harris karston connor lamb revealed some of the threats but capitol security planners now have to anticipate. 'bout four thousand armed patriots to surround the capital and prevent any democrat from going in and they have published rules of engagement inning. When you shoot in when you don't so this is. This is an organized group. That has a plan. They are committed to doing what they're doing. Because i think in their minds air patriots. They're talking about seventeen seventy six and so this is now a contest of wills joining us now. Is matt zap petoskey national security reporter at the washington post up. Matt your reporting found this. Fbi memo written in a field office in virginia day before the attack on the capital identifying planning for what they called war did that memo get to washington. It did that memo was briefed to the washington field office which is responsible business here in the city of washington dc. The fbi said at a briefing today information was also shared with the local joint. Errorism ask for a shoot unfiltered use some other law enforcement if the fbi today through what the in about it though aside from talking to each other about it remains very unclear clearly capitol. Police is not ready for the that. They based on wednesday despite the fbi having this information and everything out in summer. It's definitely made a wash in everything that i've been reading about The security experts approached this at the fbi and elsewhere is there's a certain amount of of sense that the people involved in these kinds of chats wildly exaggerate their intentions. They're just trying to say the most dramatic thing they can say and they usually end up doing nothing and that there was a certain kind of weariness that might have in in the way they analyze the stuff. I think that's a great observation in an accurate one. You know the fbi officials who talked to us in describing this thing that well you know. There's a lot of chatter online. How do you separate what's real from. What's just someone boasts in this warning itself. Sort of oddly mentioned re speech concerns. And we don't want to do anything to encroach on free speech even though the threats as you just put up on the screen clearly sort of cross the line into being threats but that's a challenge the fbi has how do they separate fake from wheel when it comes to online chatter. And then what do they do about it. I mean there's clearly a lesson to be learned here that maybe they need to get a little more seriously in their some internal soul-searching in the fbi about you. They take the online chatter of trump's supporters. And you know white supremacist. Extreme is less seriously than they take other online chatter. Those are questions that i think wrestling with. Is it your sense that this is a nine eleven event of for this kind of a security concern that there were a lot of things on nine ten that were taken less seriously than they were taken on the afternoon of nine eleven Is that what we have here. Way hate to make that comparison. I know many people have made that comparison. I think what i would say is look. This is an important data point and what it does. Most significantly in my mind is raised questions. About why the fbi on friday said we had no indication that something like at the time that seemed a little specious on. Its face because there was so much online chatter that reporters to but now we see that. The fbi saw that online chatter recognized. It wrote an internal bulletin about it but then apparently wasn't sufficient air matt's up petoskey the washington post. Thank you very much for your reporting. Thank you for joining us tonight. Thank you

More specifically sir strumming is canned fermented herring that in and of itself doesn't sound that bad. There are many fermented foods that we eat and we have no problem with them. Yogurt sauerkraut and kimchi are all fermented foods. And no-one freaks out at the idea of eating them from inflation is an ancient form of food preparation by the breakdown. Food via microorganisms like bacteria and yeast all well and good cover. There's another process of breakdown of food via micro organisms in that is called rotting serse roaming toes the line between fermentation and rotting the history of sir strumming goes back to at least the sixteenth century when we can find the first written mention of the food however the food might be very well older than that as from. It is a pretty old process. The legend of sir strumming holds that it was accidentally created by fishermen who didn't have enough salt to preserve their catch. They use less salt than normal and sold their fish to some locals and finland salt is used to inhibit microbial growth and to stop the fish from rotting. When the fishermen returned they thought the locals would be mad at them for selling them fish. That rotted instead. They love the product and wanted more of it. The fishermen tried the fish themselves and thus stroming was born today sir. Strumming is prepared. In purchasing a can while in the can the fermentation process continues fermentation results in the release of gases which means at the can will often be bulging due to high pressure inside the can the fermentation of the fish in the can result in the single most unique quality of sir strumming the smell in two thousand and two japanese study found it to be the worst smelling food in the world. The smell is so bad that it has become legendary. it's been described as rotten eggs. A dead body a dirty diaper and raw sewage but the truth is there are so few things you can really compare it to because nothing else smells quite so bad. The smell is what's made the product famous. And if it weren't for the smell it would be about as controversial as pickled herring children in sweden have been known to open a can of sir stroming school so they could get out of class. Airlines will not allow people to carry sir strumming on flights because of the high pressure in the can in the low pressure in the cabin the higher pressure differential can result in some cans rupturing spewing the smelly liquid onto the plane and. It isn't as if you can leave a plane while it's flying or open a window most famously in one thousand nine hundred one a landlord. Germany evicted attendant because they spilled a can of sir strumming in the building stairwell german laws. Make it very hard to evict people. When the eviction came to trial the landlords defense consisted of opening up a can in the courtroom. The judge have experienced the overwhelming odor ruled in favor of the landlord. If you search for sir strumming online you'll find dozens and dozens of reaction videos of people opening up the cans and trying to eat the contents. The videos mainly consists of gigging wrenching and sometimes vomiting the problem. According to the sir strumming experts is that they're eating at wrong for starters. You never want to open a canister stroming indoors for reasons which i think of established by now. Ideally you want to open the can when submerged in water that will prevent the liquid inside from spraying all over the place when it's opened alternatively you could open it while it's enclosed in a plastic bag once the liquid has been drain. You don't eat it straight from the can the herring which is put in the can. Hasn't been gutted or deboned. You need to do that. I then the traditional way of meaning it is with a swedish flat bread called tune broad along with potatoes onions and sour cream. It's usually eaten as sort of small sandwich. I've actually had the experience of trying some sir strumming and it really doesn't taste as bad as it smells ranted given that it's the worst smelling food in the world. That's a pretty low bar but it isn't bad so long as it prepared properly if you really want the full sir strumming experience. I'd have to suggest you visit the island of von in sweden's high coast. It is a center of herring fishing and it's considered. The mecca for strumming. August is considered the best season enforcers strumming. Because it's in the middle of the summer. It's also one of the best times to visit ov- on regardless the main day for eating it is the third thursday of august also known as sir strumming day. Which is the day which by royal decree you used to be able to start selling strumming. If you're there you might be able to meet ruben. Matteson who is the self proclaimed king of sir strumming. He was the person who actually served me my first serve strumming one. Is it von back in two thousand fourteen. He was involved in opening a twenty five year old. Ken of sir strumming which was found in an abandoned cabin in norway. Having been outside for a quarter century the can was quite rusted. And due to twenty five years of fermentation it was bulging a lot. The contents of the container were mostly liquid. What solid material. That did come out. Didn't really look anything. Like fish. ruben. Madsen of course aided anyhow
Minter Dial talks about his new book "You Lead: How Being Yourself Makes You a Better Leader
"My first guest of the year and i'm so excited because he's also very good friend of mine is meant to dial into how i i a sam. How are you happy new year and my friend. Now minter is a successful author. Filmography speaker podcast. And he's also multi-linguistic. I've practiced that word several times. Because it's not easy for me to say minter. We're here today because you've got a fantastic. New book came out only yesterday. What's it called. What's it about name of the book. Thank you for having me on. Science is called you lead. How being yourself makes you a better leader. And it did. Indeed launched yesterday around the world except for north america which takes three more weeks Gotta do things differently and the books about leadership so the issue at some level is just another book on leadership but said the central premise is about leadership. Starting with how you lead yourself at home with your friends family and at work. 'cause real leadership has to start with leading yourself being ceo of your life. Why did you write this booklet. Where was the inspiration. What's trophies who write this so there's a little bit of a long answer on that one time. So just indulge me a second. I began writing this book in two thousand and fourteen and the premise was. It was going to be the book that i write. i like. We all say we have a book with us. This was going to be that book and such the thesis really was a wanted to talk about my life's learnings up until the age of fifty and naturally those learnings had to be both at work and out of work and so i. I started writing this book. I went off to croatia and thirty thousand words. And then all of a sudden bang big piece of news drops and i had to put the book aside and if you can imagine. I had that specific type of process where i went into the book. Big thing happens as in someone dies or her major event. And i keep on having to put the book. Aside in the interim i've done three other books and a documentary film and finally having heart official empathy out of the way. I said i got this went in. And i got the publisher. We got moving on. Its on on this leadership principle. And then i had it in my manuscript sam on the seventh of march seventh amounts twenty twenty twenty twenty which basically was a week before we all went down into lock dumb and god another big event because that was a pretty big event and they are. My gosh is not going to happen again. But fortunately i had. The team was on fellow. I got a chance to laron some pieces. That made it even more pertinent yet. Do i feel that. The concept of leadership needed to be dramatically addressed before the pandemic. And i'm delighted to feel that sort of satisfaction that the pandemic has revealed even more the need for new type of leadership in the future. And that's why. I wrote the book so you talk about a new type of leadership. What is this new type of leadership leading so unbalanced the real difference between any other type of leadership where we're also talking about performance and getting people everyone motivated. The real design here is to think about leadership being you and your personal and professional life so absolutely taking away. The wall between what usually is just where you have to go to work. You're a strictly professional here. I really am opening up the komo no to the idea of bringing your whole personality to work now. The challenge is just finding about how much of you do. You want to bring to work to provide that authentic sense of self and yet retain the privacy that is absolutely normal the intimate highly confidential elements of you that you don't need to have and the and the challenges inevitably is finding that cursor along the scale that allows you to be you yet. Keep some secret garden that we all have private more on the basis that we are now working from home here on a zoom cool with you. I can see part of your study going. Glimpse into your personal life just through this small portal view. The are half which of course if we were in an office together. I would never know that i would never know that. Was your talk box meat. And i'd never was on new shelf so all of those things that little snippets. Is that why you think we have to not be more authentic imelda to you. Personal public personas. Let's say that's the pandemic's version and there's another bigger piece to that. Which is that. Finally people are taking stock of mental health and generally whether it's in the army as or in business there's an element of bravado to the leadership. Suck it up. let's go get it. All done and fire up the team and yet seventy percent of employees systematically score themselves being disengaged from work so were now in a situation where when you see me in my home you might hear my kids. The cat might pop up on the desk. There's also behind the screen behind the mosque. Some realities that this pandemic has changed whether or not you have a personal issue with regards to someone being sick or dying. There's just a an overall menez that's out here and whereas before we Happens at home. Keep it at home. That's died on that selfish shit happening at work. actually now. my work is at home. I can't extract myself from that whether it's my tuck box or my surroundings but more importantly my personal wellbeing and whereas before we talk about efficiencies and effectiveness by can actually see my bed from where. I'm speaking the way you sleep absolutely has an impact on your productivity. So why aren't we at work creating environments where people sleep better for example having naps. Why is it that we just have to have the google pods. Just a few of those illuminated type of companies allowing for that whereas we should actually be training people where you're learning for development departments aren't just about how do you do a pl better. How do you make a product more efficient. But how do you sleep better because that energy that you gain. That's off the ball. I like to say. I use the in sports. We say on the ball where you're at work but off. The ball counts dramatically in any sport. How you play off the ball. And i think of time away from work as off the ball and that counts absolutely how you are as a person how you show up the energy you have and that sense of discretionary energy that you bring to work and that becomes a competitive advantage. I read the book why we sleep last summer. Brilliant book and change my productivity. I was dots. Bravado person up early three hour sleep for i sleep in i can do. I've been doing that since my army days. It's easy pa. And of course i then read the book about why we sleep in the house you need and then i read the book about kadian rhythms and wire naps quite useful in when we all pick women up. He has changed the way i work. Is that what you're describing that sort of productivity the borders one hundred percent and the funny thing is sam i got on the sleep. Bandwagon serendipitous lee. When i was investi i went to university in the states and i came across a course the fluffy of sleep and i was sitting literature and the sky called rose kind was on loan from stanford and he was doing a year and as part of his situation at yale he had to teach a course in so he brought this. He'd been studying. With the god of all gods of sleepy research the time build event and so brought this course and i got lucky enough to sign up for it and all of a sudden i took four courses all around sleep back in the eighties. And just expose me to my. Gosh we tell ourselves a bunch of nonsense with this sort of bravado stop for or just the thoughts we have for example sam and i'm going to guess that most people listening don't know this but you know how many dreams you haven't tonight. I don't but i'm guessing that's one or two though you wanted to. You remember generally speaking your sleep cycles. Lost one and a half hours on average lots of averages in this and then your dream period is about often especially at the beginning of the night and the that's called the rim sleep and here's a funny thing. Do you think that your dreams happen in real time or an accelerated time. Never thought about it before. Winter is my honest answer so the bringing it down to the granular level. The forty five minutes of your dream. The issue is how you recall it. So it's like a haze you recall it. And generally what people do kaleidoscope the way they recall their dreams whereas their dreams actually happened mechanically in real time. That's to say if you imagine you're walking down a whole your brain sending but it's cut off at the neck messages to the rest of your body to walk down a hole so as long as it takes you to walk down the hall. That's how long it happens anyway. There's so many wonderful things you can learn about the importance of dreaming porton sleep and so i like to bring it into the the professional space because i think it's just another elements of our personalized that is useful when we're in the working environment.
China Plans To Sell COVID-19 Vaccines To Other Countries
"Has five covert 19 vaccines in Phase three trials, one has been given and conditional approval. Of course, China has a huge population to inoculate at home, but it's government is also pledging to provide its vaccines to lots of other countries. Catches up now on how all of that is gonna work out. We're joined now by NPR, China correspondent John Rule, which Hey, John. Hi there. Hi. Okay. So China has what the latest count 1.4 billion people total is the country focusing on vaccinating its own population first. Yeah, it's doing both. It's focusing on the domestic population, and it's also looking abroad. You know, China took quite strong measures early on in the pandemic and has mostly mostly brought it under control at home since late spring, so You know they've done some emergency vaccination since the summer. And as you say one of their vaccines was recently approved for broader use. So they're targeting 50 million vaccinations by mid February early February because the pandemics largely under control there. The efficacy trials for these vaccines that are being developed, have been done abroad in more than a dozen countries across the globe. And in Mei Shi Jin Ping, the leader of China, said that any vaccine that comes out of China is going to be a global public good right prep with priority on developing countries, So it's already in use in Bahrain and the U A E, which had been testing it and approved this vaccine in December. But the phase three data hasn't been released. Yet for any of these vaccines is under development, and that's going to be key, experts say, because that's that's the step that's going to open the door to the W H O blessing, basically, right.

"I'm am bob. I'm from kabul queensland coming away from queensland knowing anyone down he coming down here obama self. I was a little bit like nervous anxious about what was going to happen. I can elect make friends. 'cause i'm a little bit shy but eventually i mean caitlyn now i'm caitlyn. I'm from leading new south. Wales was really awkward at first meeting. New people are being part of a big crowd is really scary. Say i'm tony adamson. I'm a student at the university of adelaide studying a bachelor of science in wildlife conservation. Biology to yanni attained his cantonese ago as a year. Ten student herself in it triggered this enormous event in her life. Afterwards which you'll hear about next week but as a mentor he. She's living with this bunch of smart fifteen year olds who all applaud from right across australia to be here. Artem land to adelaide kabul cha to coffs harbour and for some of them. This is going to be the first time they surrounded by this many other indigenous people there i night. Some don't have much knowledge about their indigenous heritage. In fact how would you describe what feeling students have when they first arrive at this camp. Yeah definitely Nervous unsure of what to expect a lot of them are feeling a little bit vulnerable especially vulnerable in their cultural identity. I love it. I love my culture. Much like those a lot that i need to learn. I'm katie nugent. Catherine megyn i'm from queensland and just the feeling like when i'm on land when i'm with people who have a close connection to the land i just feel something as it's pride is like a really warm like feeling like i belong kind of thing and i want that connection. I don't know scott the feeling like it's only my stomach. It's a good feeling. I have a certain but it makes me eager to learn about my own culture and like we from two. When i can imagine that many of the students that you're working with don't necessarily feel a strong connection to culture yet. That's a really powerful emotion. Orange provocative question. A lot of us do know that we've lost our metro part of our culture. Ghana elda rosemary. Wang inane is here to support the students through the next nine days in her role as a cultural later on born.

Rosemary runs heroin company which she calls the australian institute for loss and grief developing a model for healing based on her own experiences of being dislocated from her culture or congo. We missed business. I can't do ceremonies. can't practice sorry business in a traditional way so it goes back to. What do we mean as average people. What do we mean by culture. Because pre seventeen ninety eight the traditional culture very powerful structured wise of of living and being for thousands of years post civil tonight in saw it was part of that so so what. I didn't learn why can't teach my children what children can teach my grandchildren. It this program here with these kids there. My grandkids generation. That no even this than me. Yeah we've got a responsibility to these young was. Do i think talk about. What do we mean by culture because we're living in a very very continue sitting now and that's what makes aboriginal summer school for excellence in technology and science run by the sea siro unique this intimate blending of culture with science indigenous science to two way learning aboriginal people in australia have been practicing science and scientific method for sixty thousand and eighty thousand one hundred thousand. Since the first son came we have been practicing the scientific methods through medicine through nutrition through architecture through agriculture through physics through astrophysics and it really is quite accurate when people describe acids the first scientist said what we were doing now it may not have been the language of western science that we're so used to hearing about now but it's undeniable that it was science and practicing the scientific method
'We come from the stars': Indigenous astronomy, astronauts, and star stories
"When you think about the night sky what constellations come to mind. Chances are they're rooted in western astronomy but indigenous. Astronomy and scientific knowledge have been here for millennia. It's just not taught in schools or considered important within universities. My next guest is working to change. That nielsen is mick ma. And he's a professor in the department of astronomy and astrophysics at the university of toronto. Helping welcome thank you for having me. So how would you describe the way. Astronomy is typically taught in university course university of toronto's famous having a an astronomy course fifteen hundred students in it in that course generally starts from the early greek and roman astronomy aristotle type of plato pythagoras and they will channel through european astronomy with newton and cabrera hey and yohannes kepler and galileo of course the modern enshrinement is just one linear path from the romans to essentially neil degrasse tyson and today scientists. It's very very centered in the european model. And how have you been incorporating indigenous knowledge in your courses. I've been trying to do that little bit here. And there are courses tend to be quite full of material so adding new materials always a challenge. But i always want to make sure students come in and the first thing they see is not there. Expect a constellation. I don't him see a bear with the tail lakers major. I want them to see the constellation view. I nor a constellation of the bear or a punish shining relation that please and to recognize that these constellations reflect landover on i for in toronto or in new magi or anywhere and what is indigenous astronomy. And how do you define it. How is it or how old. I define indigenous astronomy. As being the the knowledge of the peoples of the land so and since burnett Nation state of canada would find it as the astronomers of the people that were here before settlers in colonizers so strongly of the astronomy of first nations big cree on astronaut and so on across across rhode island and every nation has their own perspective of the night skydrone interpretation in knowledge of it and so these indigenous astronomers speak to connection to the land and and to the people and that knowledge has been here as long as the people have been here and so is there a star story that comes to mind for you that gives an understanding of indigenous astronomy. Great story was the story of noon on the seven bird hunters which is a story so close your eyes and you're looking morni- guy and you see what we call the less the big dipper. And if you're looking at the big dipper couple of hours before dawn in spring you're gonna see the big dipper pointing downwards so the four stars make up the bear kind of facing downwards detail is climbing higher in the sky the four stars of the big dipper in the bull our immune the bear and then pours. What would be the handle. The big dipper are at the bird hunters and you go on those three stars to another four to get the seven hunters and the story starts by while you have to get up early in the morning a couple of hours before dawn to this constellation when we observe it at that time in the morning and we observed every day we can see the constellation circle around the sky. The constellation circles around sky every night as well. So we see the two different timescales in play but if we start in the spring at that to ask for dumb the bowl. The big dipper the bears pointing downwards. And that's when the bears waking up from tiber nation and decides hungry needs to go gather food as the bear leaves. The cave i robin spies upon the bear grabs it's bone arrow and size to chase it from hunt and the story continues through the summer when muniz running across the land so the constellations kinda flat across the sky and the birger chasing it as we get towards fall newness getting tired and stands likes to fight back so the constellations on one side again. Some of the birds have fallen below the horizon and must track the hunt but immune you and stands back robin fires. It's era a striking the immune in the heart killing it. Blood gets everywhere. All of robinhood flies into the tree shakes off the blood separate one stain on his chest. The leaves are now allred as a result. Chickeny joins robin. And they begin a celebration to cook the cook. The bear and to celebrate the feast harvest as we approach winter the constellation as the bears on his back again and reflecting the spirit of the baron sky and waiting for spring to come as part of the next cycle. So we see lots of different kinds. We have knowledge of the year as a calendar have knowledge of ritual and ceremony and we have connection with nature. So it's not just a shawny story. It's it's part of. It's a story that people in story of how to be.

"I mean look it's a it's a horrible story and it's kind of part of a theme of south we've been talking about lots for a year or so you know. He teaches a course in propaganda and in america. When you when you're propaganda they always teach you. Okay it's nazi germany. It's the soviets. Whatever but american propaganda so much better and and they don't they don't come in like red pencil stuff they just they call you crazy or they come up with some other formulation. Look he might be wrong about all sorts of things right. But the the the core idea that conspiracy theories are more dangerous than terrorists which is like a rising belief now It's a thing i mean. What kind of a canary in the coalmine cut up a story. Frankly and i think that also you know the the thing that really bothers me about the way that can spirit like a weaponization of conspiracy theories no star. What would that be the the toxic. Is that a word making something toxic we can we make them to thing. The talks defying of alleged conspiracy theorists. Is that it really leaves. It really sanctions other theories right so like you are a nine eleven truth there right and i don't. I don't agree with that. I don't think they make a convincing case. But the fact that makes you a crackpot while believing that they were. wmd's in iraq doesn't make you problematic. it makes you nbc msnbc material. That's really like there's a. There's a real inherent like value judgments that is not at all like principled or consistent and also there are conspiracies. That happen like if you conspiracy just means. Briefed conspire brief together. Read so so the things that banks do with You know the senate a They're open conspiracies right. So we're conspiracies. Are all the time that the problem is. What we're we're living through this weird period. Where there were. They're trying to almost criminal. Is things that we used to just ignore like. I love the The scene in men in black you've ever seen were Tommy lee jones in will. Smith's they're desperate to find out the like what actually happened and they go. Well we gotta go to the news and they go. They go to the weekly world news. And that's where the actual real right. I mean there's like a grain of truth to that where we're like if you look in the corners of like sort of fringe media and you know people who've been laughed at or whatever look you'll you'll often find stuff that you know. Maybe it's not put the right way or it's research you know sloppily or whatever. Put things in there that have been kind of Closedown of congressional was them. that are really really worthwhile. you know. and they're what they're trying to do is shut the door on all that. Yeah and that. That is freaky. And the x factor that you write about totally right. And he's a classic example ed and also the What were you just saying conspiracy theory. Oh and the other thing is similar to this in some ways is the right wing of of things so like it is. I think it's an outrage that carlson entertains the serious stuff and msnbc men don't but instead what people say is that is clearly a friend right wing conspiracy theory because tucker carlson and laura ingram people who talk about it note. The outrage is that no one else does talk. Carlson does like a series on the impact of private equity and hedge funds on small town america. And of that's a little. That's that's a right wing trope flick. No it's just. It should be on sixty minutes. It's it's not for me. I saw you know a lot. There's this talking point. We mark warner said it. And larry summers operates be upon him said it. Which is why is bernie working on something with holly clearly. If you're working with dash holiday it's a bad idea and again no the point is it's a shame that the right way and honestly if you're a leftist or even liberal you should be wanting the lest to carve that out more than they are and you shouldn't be leaving it you shouldn't be giving republicans a chance to stake that To stake at territory right again. It's just go by association false equivalency. It's really awful and it's not looking at things on merit. It's just looking at circumstantial evidence. Yeah yeah i mean. America for all of its faults used to be a really great place crackpots and people who had weird ideas and beliefs and experimented with all kinds of odd stuff and started alternative communities and some of them were completely nuts right and that was fine. That's part of our history trying to phase out trying to They're trying to take that part of our of our culture away which is really unfortunate cultural legacy and it is and the clinton example is so important because there really was a vast right wing conspiracy and and they suck are real things that they did and they are so lucky that they had those insane right-wingers attacking them because they they use that as a shield all the time. And you know what the best wing conspiracy was. Apparently part of it was monica lewinsky. That was real screw. That was really fun. will not not fun. It was interesting and kind of scary. But i cried role car several mergers and thanks for listening in thanks for Tuning back into us after the holiday. Thank you we'll see that's opie messed us. Sure you did rain.

Native Groundcovers with Duncan Himmelman
"Com. But as i mentioned in the introduction. I'm now eradicating some naughty plants. Well oh yeah very much familiar And i i agree with you in terms of plants. Like and japanese pachysandra You know back forty years ago people were saying. Hey here are some great options for you and now fast forward. We're regretting every moment of having planted any of those in our yard so absolutely My interested in native ground covers of course comes from switching out those particular Particular ground cover options to Have native plants that can provide ecosystem benefits and provide alternatives to the lawn. Yes the naughty uninvited mental lawn. That doesn't do much for wildlife. And we momo and use all kinds of non-sustainable things in the process of doing so in feeding it in whatever so yeah prentice amazing so voided at all costs. So you've been thinking about grant covers for a long time as i recall. I think you even did. Maybe part of your doctoral work or some graduate work at cornell years ago on ground covers didn't you. I mean this has been a long interest. Yeah has In the urban horticulture institute at cornell and we were looking for a ground covers that would survive. Urban conditions and the premise of the research was to use woody plans instead of herbaceous plants and the reason being that what he plans year round structure. And if you're in In a city like or urban environment you can appreciate the fact that herbaceous ground covers. I'll lose their foliage over winter and people could step on them and compact the soil so we were looking for shrubs in point of fact That would be up to three feet in height and have some opportunity to spread and cover the ground fairly quickly so Yeah it was a an interest of mine at that time and you know in terms of recommending shrubs as ground covers. People have kind of shied away from that because they think of copper has traditionally being something that's low to the ground six or so inches and spreads but a number of shrubs it can Fill that role yes and in some spots especially you want that extra dimension i mean plus it really like i have a hillside just out on a on a very steep site in. Just there's a small sort of flat backyard area and then a water garden and then there's a steep incline again. You know where the property rises again. And i have a lot of ground covers on that area. It's a it's a. it's a tough spot to get in there and work in all the time you know. It's it's precarious. So it's great to have things that are kind of permanent and solid and been there a very long time and they don't have to get in there all the time and you know dead head or tweak constantino what i mean mean. There's a lot of maintenance that goes in to Pervasive ground covers and one of the One of the primary shrub plants. That i like to recommend for that exact situation a hillside. That's full sun facing Well drained is grow fragrance. su mac. It's it's the best choice for so many so many situations because it roots in quite easily. It spreads slowly but You know steadily and it has a lot of beautiful features such as the green foliage during the spring and summer and they turn beautiful beautiful crimson and wine reds in the fall so It's a plants that we were of course in our graduate research cornell and i see more and more being used out in the landscape whether it's urban commercial or even residential so great choice for that that kind of situation they love full sun.

"Podcast and now. Here's here's our policy twenty twenty student. Hi My name is Anna and I'm a student at Claremont Mckenna College. I'm wondering if what brookings expert could explain how important the Iowa caucuses are to the Democratic primary race. How do different primary methods influence election outcomes? Thank you Anna Hannah for your question. This is Elaine K.. Mark I'm a senior fellow here at the Brookings Institution and I've been studying presidential nomination processes for or quite some time. Now let me answer your question. It was a two part question. The first one is Iowa is important because it is I and and to understand that you have to realize that unlike any other election system in the American political system primaries or the nomination of a president is sequential process. It isn't one election. It's a series of elections that run all the way from the winter to the beginning of the summer of a presidential election year culminating in the Convention Iowa by tradition and now by party rule and now by agreement agreement between the two political parties is the first caucus state in a long series of contests. And because because it's I it tends to winnow the field. The conventional wisdom is that there are three tickets out of Iowa. First Place second place in third place and that if people fall behind if you're number ten in Iowa you probably are not going to win the nomination now the second part of your your question. As the effect of different primary systems there are really only two systems for picking delegates to national convention. Listen the caucus system and the primary system there are very few caucus systems left this time. They're probably be under. Ten caucuses focuses in both political parties. The reason is that they don't allow for as much participation as a primary in a caucus system. You have up to go to a certain place on a certain night and participate in a meeting that could get rather long and not a lot of people. People have the time or the inclination. Frankly to do that. I'll caucus is much more time consuming than a primary where you can stop by your polling place and vote on your way to pick up the kids from basketball practice so it's a different time. Commitment and over the years states have of moved further and further in the direction of binding primaries meaning that the primaries will direct how many delegates each presidential candidate gets. I want to add here though. Just one small caveat. This whole process of caucuses and then primaries is he is to select delegates to a nominating convention. A presidential candidate isn't the nominee of their party until all the convention votes them the nominee so a lot of different things can happen between the Iowa caucuses in early February. Sorry and the two national conventions in July and August. Thank you very much for having me and if you WANNA learn more about it you can look at a blog post published today on the Brookings Websites which is a guideline to the Iowa caucuses. And if you really really WANNA learn more about this you can get my book called primary politics everything you need to know about how America nominates its president. Sir Thank you very much. Learn more.

Hi Sally and Kate so I went to church today for the first time in a hot second and in the middle I started getting extreme anxiety I have a diagnosed anxiety disorder because when I was sitting there it reminded me of emotionally abusive. My ex-boyfriend was to me he was an extreme Christian who played guitar in the Church every Sunday went to youth group every week consistently was preaching and praying with me which was amazing I want to say no hurt feelings about religious people think it's amazing when people are that firm in their faith I just think it's something that you need to know and understand why I'm feeling the way I am any who my ex boyfriend was also incredibly emotionally abusive he was controlling he needed to know where I was all the time told me who I couldn't couldn't talk to he told me I wasn't allowed to talk to my best friends anymore because they were male and not female what I couldn't couldn't wear and what music I could listen to that being said I pretty much told him I was my own Jason he wasn't the boss of me and then I could do what I wanted his response was always twisted in the sense that he would use God against me by telling me that's not what good Christian girls do so of course young naive Christian constants who is trying to find her relationship with God listen to this asshole change vast majority of who I was in the process now whenever I go to church and around people who remind me of this guy that control the year of my life I have anxiety attacks I guess my question is how can I get over this dread of going some I love what is the best way to get this assholes abuse as far away from me as possible so I can be a bad ass Christian who causes a little and then in parentheses a lot MHM Catherine was you are crushing it constantly this is a really you're self aware you you know what's going on and I personally am not religious but I do really respect religious people I think that whatever works for you is your thing and I elite respect that I am so sorry this happened to you that being said I wonder I have certain associations with things that remind me of people used to date as well it may not be religious specific but there's Times where you just don't want to watch that TV shows are you just don't want to listen to that song because it reminds me of that person I I wonder if there's a way in which you can find and a different church or another way in which to worship that would help you not be triggered by the person but at the same time it's okay I think to take a step back if you need to and understand that it doesn't mean you're a bad Christian and it doesn't mean you're a bad person sally stomach sense yeah totally I think it it definitely makes sense yeah I mean I think like one of the reasons I was drawn to this email this time is because I've been thinking what about missing Brooklyn and what it what it means to feel connected to a place and I've been thinking a lot about how I really really didn't like living in New York overall but I really loved a lot of living in Brooklyn and I loved like the routines that I had established and the places that I loved so and everything like even Catherine like I went to a wedding in Brooklyn this weekend and I was as you know and like who was nearby like where you live and thought about like taking the train super duper early in the morning over to your apartment and like watching the sunrise and like record with you and I was like Oh man like I love the so much anyway I'm saying all that to say like associations that we have to places are really strong and really intense and I think that they do go away and time and like I know after just from having breakup non from non abusive relationships that it takes a second to want to like you know it's like I I remember like feeling like I had to reclaim like a coffee shop I used to my ex all the time so that when I went in there I was don't like constantly thinking about the relationship in the break up and you know for a while I couldn't go there and then I would go there and like do things and then eventually I was like Oh this is just my place this is just go this isn't about this relationship that ended and so some of that I think is like that is like kind of reclaiming a space and making your own again but I also think that like when there's Emma involved it's it's not as easy as just like you know having a stiff upper lip and like walking in and reclaiming place because especially if you're having like a panic reaction which you are constants from what you describe in Silica I'm wondering if like I mean so I I actually think that like one thing you should do is like you know if you're not ready in therapy is like talked to someone who's a professional who can help you sort of dislike abuses traumatic and like help you understand and process it and unpacked getting in that in and of itself might be helpful but I think also there are really specific strategies that that you can try to help you love be calm in the moment on different like CBT type strategies And and look I I wouldn't advise that you go to church and try those because I don't want to tell you something that's GonNa make you like really triggered and really panicked but I guess what my suggestion is is to like look into those and look into like what people do too kind of re-claim spaces that they want to be in you know I think probably it's like some kind of combination of things which is like you know like maybe finding new church at least temporarily and like even if it's you know maybe it's not about this bizarre church maybe it's church at all and in which case like there's probably some unpacking to do around around just like the relationship in general because they think like I think it can be tough to like do these things in isolation especially when variance trauma it's like I I think it's probably not going to be just about finding away to be okay and church I think it's probably going to be like a bigger project of like processing what happened and then also working on the being in church stuff yet reclaiming your space is a great way the Christian friends there's other ways to still have that community without being retraumatize 'cause I don't want to make you think you have to be forced back into it right like it might take a few months years whatever and that's okay yeah I mean I find community in practice your faith and stuff like that but I think like you know if being in churches like a goal of yours without feeling anxious I think like you know for me like I have my anxiety reactions or my panic reactions are like exist on a spectrum it's like Oh for example like post breakup walking into a place that I might see my ex like maybe like on a scale of one to ten that's like a five whereas like walking into an airport is like an eleven and like a real you know what I mean and so like for you know airplane those those those strategies aren't really as useful to me because I'm already I'm so panicky like so anyway I'm seeing all that to say like you know think about how you feel like what what was your anxiety reaction was it like you know flop sweat stomach.

"Times before and as I will keep mentioning until I die we are in the midst of redoing the tears and figuring out some better things to get all of you that we can also commit to which is a tough sweet spot but we're getting there thank you for your patience we love you and please become a paper trend or not if you don't want to that's also fine Katherine we have a lot of different Javer we do so we We have some thoughts about Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren and yet the elections and Yes yes so I put this in the dock 'cause I really wanted to well Catherine from being honest I wanted to shout into the mic about it and that's what I'm GonNa do so if you don't want to hear about politics fast forward one hundred and twenty three minutes but here's the thing so I'm not gonna I'm not here to talk about like who I WanNa vote for and who I like because it's not really what the is about and also just because I feel like I'm GonNa regret it because someone's going to end up being a monster and also supporting politicians is grotesque and I just I don't really want to talk about what I do WanNa talk about is that the obstacle for me with Bernie is that the people who like him are terrible and not all of them there's there's an ass risk their wishes to say definitely not all of them and you know it's you know I'm talking about like my timeline in what I see and so the that's obviously like a very select group and it's possible that I just follow more terrible people than I should also like who knows who are what what accounts are bought sentence interfere with our elections and who are real people but I will say I do follow some real people who are Bernie supporters and I've muted a lot of them the noxious ones not the not obnoxious ones there are a lot of wonderful progressives who have an intersectional perspective and appreciate the fact that Bernie has been up for various progressive causes for a long time and and I I was being funny for the purposes of comedy when I said that all of his supporters are terrible I Oh they're not I know they're not all terrible but listeners don't don't Addison Yeah I'm GonNa need you to do is at me like I there is this thing of seeing white people a lot of them are men explain to you why Bernie is better while also like dunking on other candidates who are like you know maybe not socialists but more less equally progressive and or like close to it or like you know who who who bring progressive ideas and policies to the conversation and it Bernie's whole thing is about how he's building a movement you know this this is about rearranging power relations this isn't just about you know who were electing it's about fundamentally changing who has power in this country and if that's what you're about which I think is dope then like are you really building with people if all you're doing is like dunking on them especially when they're they're essentially like their values are like between seventy and ninety percent like overlapping with yours and so like why dunk and I know that like there are people who support other candidates who are dunking a lot but I have to say the amount that I see Bernie supporters flexing on social media in obnoxious way it's just like it's like now we're not even having a conversation about anything useful were just like talking about why Bernie is so much better than everyone else and like I think it's fine for me I think that but the thing is that the thing that I see in the people who are into him is white people you know again a lot men but not all aways who who whose entire purpose in life is to explain to you why understanding class struggle is the most important thing you can do to change anything in this country and everything else comes second and they say they're intersectional and that may have raised analysis in gender analysis but like that hasn't I don't see that that often and again like I'm not talking about all Bernie supporters of this doesn't apply to you it doesn't apply but I just I just mean like I see it so much and I it makes me completely enraged and then one last thing and then I'm GonNa stop talking I just briefly so that you can another thing that I've seen people do and again like I have to say that I see it mostly with Bernie orders and look I would be indicting Warren supporters if I saw them being insufferable and look I do I do actually see some insufferable white women who Oh yes yes are are obnoxious in their support for Warren and I'm not GonNa say I don't see that but I just see the burning incense way way more but the thing that I've been seeing Bernie supporters do is whites Bernie supporters telling you who people of color are supporting in this way where it's like they're not really citing data so much as they are explaining to you that like their candidate is the one that black people in the United States really like six and not the other candidate and I just I feel this is a really bad space to occupy as a white person I think you know it's important to listen to collar and marginalized people and just anyone in this country who has a deeper analysis and a closer experience with oppression to to like I I want to know what they're thinking and we are thinking about who is going to make change in this country but that's really different than being like look the white person I'm here to tell you who black people in this country and lat next people in this country and generally people of color who they really like and who they're really supporting because it's it's such a weird cudgel to use to like bring other white I guess it's to like bring other white progressives to your side but it's like you're speaking for a lot of different communities and I've hidden a bunch of people on facebook who do this constantly I find it enraging and that's my rant Catherine Yeah so remember when I sent you the screen shots of attack message I have donated to Bernie in the AALST and obviously if he's the nominee were voting firm because you know anything but you know but I wrote back to the tax and I was like hey you know I I'd like to be taken off this text chain which by the way I wasn't and somebody came back at me immediately and they were like Oh but black women and women love him and I was like dude chill the fuck out and we got an actual courageous conversation about the way in which he was talking to me like I need to hear that like I can make decisions on my own you don't need to patronize me and the way in and he actually apologized and all that stuff and that's good now we're like dating I'm joking but it was a really intense text conversation and I was very upset because I'm like are is this how you're speaking to people and by the way anyone can support anyone this is not about that right it's more about how the conversation is happening and so when everyone everyone most people say to me but Bernie loves this and that it's like I get it but I can make my own decisions you don't need to me that Bernie loves women like we Ah yes I'm a woman I believe were of what what he does and I it's so it's so patronizing so right it's it's just not a way in which to do a campaign and I feel the members should tone it down a notch yeah man I I really had it with like progressives of all stripes being like trying to prove to you that their candidate is is the more is the truly authentically progressive one which it's not that like I don't think we should talk about who has like progressive values and policies but it sort of now is becoming like this thing where everyone is just I don't know man like no one is is like listening and learning and growing everyone is just like trying to tell you why the person they like right now is a way better choice than the person you like but not in a way that feels substantive like I keep I keep you know I sit down a computer like once or twice a day being like or I really want to have a deeper understanding of the the two candidates in this race who I find really compelling and I really WanNa like understand like the significant differences between them and stuff like that and you know some of it is like pretty the like pretty apparent and but then when you when you try to go deeper like even even like think pieces I find are written are they're coming at the place of like let me prove to you why this candidate is better than the other one as opposed to like an an exploration of both and and and and I know that there's like stuff out there that that I can find I'm sure there is but it it's really hard to find it because the conversation is just so like is just so much about like flexing and I don't know I've just I've had it with the Bernie brothers I really have and I know it's it's a tough world out there there's a lot of anger and division and stuff but I feel that the best way to not do that is to have those conversations and I agree with you completely that we need to have more of them and we're not actually talking about the fact that this is a job interview it's not a wrestling contest you know we need to constantly check the candidates people who are running like we need to look at it that way right there were for us on a pay their you know bills so look at it that way and I feel very weird when I meet all who see it as a contest it's not a contest it's we are all you know resolving who we want to be in having major power and representing us so therefore they need to hear us and as a result they have a job to do and there's no way in which that any of them are ever perfect and even if your candidate wins they're still working for you you have to you have to be judgmental you have to say hey that's not cool I voted for Obama right and get all you know he was pretty centrist on a lot of the things that I didn't agree with and you can say that out loud about being late yeah we won you know and I I loved him as a president because he was open minded and listen to the feedback but also felt that he didn't do the best job at some things and I can say that out loud and the second I talk about you know forty five his name 'cause I can't everyone's like oh because you're a Democrat it's like no it's because I'm a human being in the world who disagrees with the policy and I feel we don't enough talk about that you know we don't have to be divided the only reason I'm a registered Democrat is so I can vote in the primary that's literally the only reason because that's a rule and yes it's it's rough out there and we should really think about the the we're their bosses they're not the boss of us and this is not a cage match yeah yeah it's interesting that you're saying that I hadn't really thought about it from this perspective but like I also get really frustrated when People Cape for like podcast hosts that they're obsessed with our like celebrities that in it's like the I don't like they're never going to be your friends like you know like you you know when you like go to the Mat to like you know thank on someone who is like your person's perceived like enemy like you just you just look like a Ding Dong like yeah Bernie's not going to be your best friend like Joe Rogan is not GonNa notice that you're that you're like you know you know like preaching his nonsense in people's mentions you know and and not not to compare Joe Rogan but I say just like the like the white youngsters who are into who are into Bernie like the way they show up is just like I find it so super duper maddening and part of it is that you know I have this thing like you know just to be honest but what I'm bringing to this whole thing because you know we're all bring your own shit but like I have this thing about people sort of like I see it a lot in like gaming communities like non line like the way people are sort of like obsessed with defending the the like kind of I don't even know the hosts gamers that they think are like the best in the coolest and beyond reproach it's just like you're embarrassing yourself like you know hold these people countable like you know none of these people are going to be your friend like Bernie is not GonNa make you spokesperson or his field organizer because you're being shitty when someone mentions you know and you know I I'm like I'm very fixated on Bernie rose and like you're never going to hear me make this like trump's followers are Nazis so I'm not even Gonna I'm not GonNa go there either but and Hillary supporters are monsters in their own way but like so I guess I will talk about other people's supporters but I just the I don't know the the way in which Bernard Brothers get under my skin is so specific and you know it probably changed Bernard Brother Bernard brothers it I'm sure I'm sure it has something to do with the fact that like for forty years I've been trying to like escape white men explain inning to me why everything that they think is most important should be most important to me and I just I.

"Station has fired the printing out the host the person responsible for putting that graphic on the screen. Hold on. That's really unfair. I mean, did he serve time. We had that whole appeal. He was suspended. Right. I don't know the details of this. I didn't even know. There was a firing. I was just laughing at the known cheater part of this. And then it escalated, and what I ask you Mike is to put SPN resources and motion right now to see if we can hire him this week for suit random Super Bowl coverage just have him checked. Let's let's give him a job at the graphics department. Our graphic department for three days and just put up whatever he wants to on ESPN news before we do that. However, before we begin those negotiations, Billy I would say that you are the. Shining symbol for how sad radio row is. But we've been mocking this thing for about ten years. And I remember where we started. God's played some this sound on Friday. We used to have a hosts down here in Miami. Kevin Rogers, and he did a show at like, eight o'clock in some sort of either amphitheater convention center. There was nobody there, and he would just be sitting there by himself waiting for anybody famous to wanders even sadder. I'm pretty sure this was the Jacksonville Super Bowl. If you have it drive time show, it is said to begin with if you have an evening show at radio row home. All right. But the the whole thing is said and Billy will bring us that sadness live here over the next couple of hours. But before we do that. Let's just check in with some Kevin Rogers sound I'm gonna ask you, which of these two sounds is sadder. This is a former Miami radio host Kevin Roger no working on about that K rods. I'm very sorry. I didn't know you were still working, regardless of the sport has taken something out of him over the years. But this is when he was just a young buck in the sadness. What else we got? Oh my God. Ray Lewis here. Can we get ready to Lewis and the show before my tongue falls off Ray freaking Lewis in the house while hey, Ray got a couple of minutes. Right. Let's see whenever right Louis.

"All right, Mark summers. Is the greatest thing since Mr. Rogers in your childhood. I don't think anyone can dispute that. I've got a couple of kids here who are grown up allegedly but super excited to talk to you. I want to get out of the way they just wanna pepper you with questions Radha tat tat. So I don't even want to say Hello or any greetings, Mark. Even though you're affable and friendly. And everyone loves you. I. I want to get out of the way and let them pepper you with question. Hi, Mark summers. It's Mike Ryan executive producer of the show. I once all you perform family double dare Live Aid county youth fair. It was amazing. I question. Appreciate it. There anyone in recorded history that could pull off suit jacket, jeans and white sneakers the way that you could, sir. No, I started that mastered it and at to sixty seven I'm still doing it your sixty seventy oh my God. Yeah. Live that long. Great. What are you kidding me? Sixty seven. You know, what else you raise? It makes no sense. You also introduced me to rolling up the sleeves on your suit jacket. I didn't know that that could possibly be a look that was affected. But you, sir. You open that door. Yes. Well, thank you. I'm glad that you pick that up in obviously, you're very young gentleman, sir. If I may get this all the time, I assume your favorite obstacle in family. Double dare was picking that was every kid's favorite every kid in visual. It was actually a bottled after my nose. I said they say. Gumbo. She better, but he had. Oh, okay. So mount Rushmore one of the more difficult ones that along with the couch where you had to go through the couch and find this stuff. Yeah. Oh in the garbage truck. Do you? Remember the garbage? I remember I did five hundred twenty five of them. I remember that quite well. What was it game where someone would have to have a tube on their head? And you'd have to throw was at the Sundays something where. Yeah. Yeah. There was also sponges involved where you'd have to like get the liquid up to a certain point. And you would have to rely. Yeah. Absolutely, man. This is the best negative past a particular line. Mark. Are you annoyed in any way about getting a liquid past a line as my question? Are you annoyed in any way? By the fact, that they're just telling you that the interview the whole interview is hey, hey, you remember that game? Yes. I remember it all tonight at sixty seven might find is still intact. Trust me more than I feel like you would just drive up into Orlando. And you had the big like you had your own floor owned Orlando Orlando, I couldn't go out back in the day because it was a mob scene. So I stayed at a place called the villas of grand cypress, which is where Michael Jordan stayed back in the day, and they kicked him out of room for your. No, no, no. I would see him in the morning go swimming, sometimes or ride his bike or whatever it was me and Michael villas of grand cypress because otherwise we couldn't walk around in Orlando. We get mobbed the goat and Michael Jordan. If you could only have or what would you do? I what would you do was a show that was on right after a double dare, I did ninety episodes of that thing. And there's a particular generation who favors that show even more than double dare, which I find interesting and peculiar, which do you like better? Oh, a double dare was was my go-to one. No question about your back doing it. Now back doing it. Now, we're doing a Super Bowl special that will air at noon on Nickelodeon on Sunday and I'm on tour.

"Listen, learn these things live at our show with two guys on ESPN radio guy says it's so exciting Alison just sex me. We might have an veil for Mark summers. One next segment dairy Nickelodeon game show, host family double dare. And what would you do Mark summers? Put it on the poll could anyone ever pull off shoot jacket, jeans and white sneakers? Like Mark summers? I'm telling you, not even Jerry Seinfeld could pull it off the way Mark summers. Did that's a great? So I just wanna say Hello to Mark. I have three questions for Mark summers. You better take Mark summers? We doing Mark. So he's still looks young. Right. It looks young. I I remember him on Nickelodeon when I was a kid. Oh, man. And then he transition to what would you do which was? A bigger vehicle for Mark summers? Maybe not as fun. But he was the ideal quintessential game show host for my generation now that was workaholics episode. That was totally built around Mark summers. Which people my age really got a kick out of. I wonder what he's up to. What are you doing Mark? Some why are you radio row, and which obstacle in the obstacle course, family double? There was your favorite. If you could only have one. Would you go pick it with a pine machine? And what would you do stand? Do you have any idea who we're talking about? Just looked him up. I just went to Wikipedia. I I had no idea before. Okay. Well, we will. We'll have you sit that one out as we obsess over Mark summers. Billy have you seen him yet? Have you actually seen you mentioned he was far away? But if you've gotten close to him. Oh, I've seen him. He's on stage. And he looks so good. He's talking to CBS sports right now. And he's wearing exactly the outfit that mar Mike describe that he'd be wearing Dan, you know, who else we ran into. I'm so sweaty. 'cause I'm just running around excited. You know, who we saw on another stage friend of the show diamond Dallas page, no way, hold on. My get the sound of the last time. We have diamond Dallas page on stand. Do you know who that is? No, I idea. All right. He's a professional wrestler. We will play that sound for you in a second. But I it appears that we have our first legitimate Super Bowl controversy. And when I say controversy, I say, I mean thing that ESPN can turn into content even though it's not actually content. So when I tell you that Bella check Bill Belichick says that Lawrence Taylor is the best player. He's ever coach best football player. He's ever seen. What is your initial thoughts on that? Ballot. Check is right. He's telling the truth. Lawrence Taylor is the greatest football player that many of us have ever seen. Yes. Are you familiar with his quarterback Bella checks quarterback? And how he might receive that information when we learned that he was asked to rank his quarterback all time, and he wouldn't do it. He gave lowering Taylor number one all time wouldn't rank his own quarter. But twenty years from now if Brady has retired don't you think Bella check, we'll say, hey that was the greatest quarterback of all time Lawrence. He wouldn't say while Lawrence is playing and he's not going to say, well, Tom is playing but twenty years from now if Brady has retired I think ballot check will finally say something like that, Dan. And we'll see if you're right twenty years from now, I'm sure we'll Marco's works down and see if you're right twenty years from now, he's retired as you slip slide away from the fact that you forgot about Brady when analyzing Lawrence Taylor and twenty years from now, we'll see whether you're right or not stand. What are your thoughts there? No. I think that's exactly right. I don't think he's going to place any of his players. He's coaching now on on any of those lists. And so he's a cinch. Really talking about not necessarily player to a retired. But players that are in his past for sure that that's the only thing I thought when you said that I have to do God's I have to get to a handful of things here today. But this CJ Anderson sound I want to play for you guys because everybody's been making fun of C J Anderson because he's he's heavy..

Go go run after Carson Palmer's if you can what? What billy? Yes. What do you have? We have a special treat. So you see this tablecloth? This wasn't a tablecloth. This was actually a backdrop that we took to make a tablecloth because our table was to white. So it wasn't working on TV. But Dan, it looks like it says the Dan Le Batard show with stugatz. But if we flip it over it says the Stephen Smith show, so we could have people think they're gonna come on the Stephen Smith. And then boom surprise the Dan lebatardshow, you say the word, and we're flipping this tablecloth over the Hattie play is Jim Rome there yet. Haven't side subjects. The Super Bowl started. I saw okay. Go ahead. Billy, Billy, go ahead and see that tablecloth over and also just as an added reference where primarily a radio show. So when you say if you can see this table cloth. Keep those to a minimum, okay? Because there are many more people listening to us on the radio this radio work. They'll you can't see it. All right. So it's a black tablecloth and it has yellow and blue and white and red lettering on it imagine that in your in your mind right now. Now, we're gonna flip it over. You don't need me to to dictate this go on with we're going to get out of here. All right. So ROY has the new power go sit in a penalty box there somewhere near radio row before though we do anything stand would you like to rip football here on Super Bowl week? Do you have any opinions about football? I know you, and I have talked off air in the past about the idea that what we're watching is unethical cockfighting. So I think now is a good time to discuss that. Well, no, it just came out again this week with Tommy Novus, former falcon linebacker that they call Mr. falcon had extensive CTE had comments from, you know, his daughter saying how tough it was at home because of the volatility of his emotions that we get these stories from time to time and you just wondering. Why why we allow this to go on? And why we all contribute to it by watching and it's not like I don't ever watch football game. So I'm as guilty as anybody..

I'm gonna go ahead and two lines through it. So so here's STAN Rams receiver Brandin cooks. This video two million dollars is gifting the team custodian with a pair of tickets to the Super Bowl and Bleacher report is saying that that's what this week is all about heart emoji. I believe as gods believes that the comment left by somebody beneath that is what the Super Bowl is actually all about. And the comment is this. Let's not get carried away. Cokes can be a good guy. But really, he's just reciprocating the favor. Vinicius crew gave the Rams of free unearned trip to the Super Bowl. So cooks follows that janitor earned going to that goal just as much as cooks and the rest of the ram. I mean, that's that's out saying you can't beat the comment comment is the absolute best.
