YouTube Keeps Trying to Shut Us Down
"But YouTube twice now has shut us down. They've banned Sebastian gorka for life. Doctor gorka, former Trump administration official, terrific radio host. Great writer, great voice. Solid conservative YouTube banned him. Forever. Now, what are his crimes? I guess they're the same crimes we had. We played a Trump cut a few weeks ago. They talked about election integrity. Can't do that. YouTube doesn't tolerate that. They took us down, said we were guilty of election misinformation. Before that, we played the clip months ago of an Atlanta school board mom, railing against the mask mandate. All we did was play the clip. YouTube took us down. We were guilty of COVID mission. They don't tolerate any other point of view. And it's sickening, but it's a tough position to be in because as our company is pouring money and investing into this TV product, which we think looks pretty good. Check it out for yourself. Go to Mike online dot com to watch the stream or rumble? I prefer you're gonna rumble because I like seeing an alternative to YouTube. So watch the show on rumble. But YouTube is short of whether we like or not kind of part of the package.

Charlie and Jack Posobiec Discuss What It Means to Be a Good Man
"All right, this is a good question. Sherman from Grand Rapids, I commonly say, just as some background is in references in the question, be the same person in public that you are in private. Because stop pretending to be somebody that you're not. So if you are in private, a conservative, be a conservative in public. Charlie always say that you should be the same person in public that you are in private. I agree, but what does it look like to be a good person in private so that you carry over that good behavior publicly? I hear Jack talk about his years of sobriety. You talk about the need to explore big ideas and always be constantly learning. Can the two of you just expand on what it looks like to be a good person, specifically a good man in today's day and age Sherman from Grand Rapids? Kind of an open ended question, but I'd go back to I'd go back to the gospels where we're taught to be in the world but not of the world, right? So the idea that when people meet you, that you can talk, you know, I can make cultural references to Game of Thrones and Harry Potter and Star Wars and everything else. But when you meet them, when you meet someone, or I should say, when they meet you, rather, that they should come off with a sense of that person is grounded in something different. And something that's a little bit different than what's pumped onto TV every day. What is your sobriety meant for your life? Not drinking. So, yeah, for me, early on, and I wasn't someone, you know, I didn't do I never considered myself an alcoholic, but it got to a point where I said, you know what? I'm done with this. I'm totally done. Why? And why did you get to that point? You know, I've told some stories about this before, but I had a friend who, you know, I had a friend who got arrested over it and I saw the way that it basically ruined his life. And this was really on early 20s. And I saw how just so many doors were closed to him. We're completely closed by after what happened. And I said, you know, for my life, looking at it, it's not worth it. It's not worth even going down that road, and plus I get to wake up every morning, feeling amazing right now and not just because I sleep on my pillows, which I do. From a food Kirk. There's another promo code out there that people not on this show, but not on this show. But seriously, we do see one of our pillars, actually, and the toppers in the sheets. But my wife loves not knowing, I don't understand. From a coach is the only way to go. Yeah, okay. And you have your mental, the way I look at it is this. The way I look at is this. Parallel talents, right? Parable Italians is that the idea from behind that is that God gives you your talents God gives you your gifts. He doesn't give them to you, so you can bury them under the ground. Talents were a currency and hide them. But you're right. Right, it is perfectly for the English term to. You're right. And so I look at it and I say I've been given whatever gifts I've been given whatever meager gifts I've been given by God. And this is something that dilutes them. It's something that affects your brain chemistry. It's something that affects your health. This doesn't seem like I'm being a good steward of God's talents if I'm

John Solomon: 'Let's Go Brandon' Is the 'Yankee Doodle Dandy' of Our Generation
"Take, people have played the video again and again and again of the original let's go Brandon, where the TV presenter pauses to allow the stadium to shout what they shouted. She knows she knew what was she was doing, don't you think John? As a, you know, as an experienced journalist, she was having fun there, wasn't she? Yeah, she was, or she was trying to cover for what she thought was an embarrassing moment. Listen, let's go Brandon, is this generation's Yankee doodle dandy, right? Yankee doodle was written to mock king George. And this is the perfect example of mocking all the censorship, all of the craziness in America. Media can't tell even an honest story about what's being said in the stands. But the American people get it and they're having fun with it and sometimes humor is the greatest weapon in politics. I love that. I love that. It's our Yankee doodle dandy it's how we point out that the emperor isn't just naked. He's also seen now. That's what let's go

That was one of the first you know shows did not have music at its core but i guess it still fit the brand because it was reflecting the the culture you know and that very much like feel that is like the you know the the grandfather. A lot of these unscripted shows to get nowadays. Yes they all get these people together who are questionable relationships and just wait for them to spark off each other. Exactly exactly. it's it's putting very different personalities in a confined space and waiting to see what happens. Cool so So tyrel for most of that. The ten years i started out doing kiro was the last few years there long before kiro existed so i was doing music video based shows doing mainly stuff. What we call at. The time was alternative. Music was a show called one hundred and twenty minutes which aired every sunday night. Which was you know. It was the pixies and you to the cure. You know. it wasn't like pop acts But i did everything. It was really great. It was you know. Mtv for me was very much kind of like grad school in that. I learned how to make television because I got to do so many different kinds of projects and so many different genres That it was always fresh. It was always knew and in the last few years then i started doing the live events. I started doing news even and things like that And then that that live experience led into trl.

It just go just start over and it starts the program right back at the beginning to me that makes it a Mexican better that makes who live better than at and T. TV. I don't know if it's going to do the same thing when I get the box I'm my prediction is it will, and that could be a dill breaker for me. The picture quality just blows away. Hulu. I then. We'll have to get into a discussion about which channels are missing from Hulu that at and T. has which there are some that. That makes it frustrating again. T.. Their packages, you go all the way up to their premier package to have pretty much every major channel that you could ever want, and that's kind of what makes them right now, the winner as far as channels available and I already gave you my philosophy I know some people say I only want to channels that I that I watch how do I know when something's not gonna come on a channel that I WANNA watch? K. So I don't want to repeat everything I said in the first episode. So all right. I'm going to log in here and I'm going to watch. Out, for my television see if it's better than the APP that comes on Apple Television and we will see there you have it at and T. TV. At and T. TV now at and T. T. now's streaming service that you can sign up to right now you don't need a two year contract. You don't need their device ATV's a streaming service that you need a two year contract and you get their streaming device really weird. I get the big the big benefit for the two year contract is that massive? First Year savings big time if you're going to subscribe to eight, if you're thinking about subscribing to at and T..

"I'm watching TNT the best ball game I'm going to go over here. To the Guide and I'M GONNA just go I'm going to click on guide. And I'm just going to go down to a travel channel beyond the unknown and I'm going to click on it and guess what? It's just going to start right where it is. It does not going to offer me. I cannot rewind I can't rewind as far as I can tell going back to the basketball game. No I can't don't believe I can rewind in any way shape or form. In fact. Yeah. I cannot. So that's that's a massive difference and that puts Hulu and the advantage right now I do not know if it's going to work the same way when I get the at and T. TV bucks I said, I still want to know why we need the box is the box going to improve this service dramatically why do I need the bucks because again I signed up for at and T. TV, last night. But I'm already using the service, I've been using the services since last night and. It's just weird and then I'm going to get a box and then I'm GonNa Hook up the box and I'm going to be watching the same thing via the box. If the box doesn't improve the picture quality, a hundred percent if the box doesn't just have some great performance of already stated it I don't really understand why you have the box unless you don't have a box if you don't. Have A box. Then I guess in that way, it will work out for him, but then most people have a smart TV. So they don't need a streaming box anyway. So I don't know I'm waiting to see, but this is the big negative. So if you if you go to ATV now and you sign up for their streaming service that doesn't require to your contract, you don't get the bucks. Wanted the big downfalls is you cannot click on the guide, go to a live television program and it's going to ask you want start over. No it's just going.

"Okay, that's a big discount for a year and get pretty much every channel that's available. Right? I mean pretty much any channel that I could want would be available that makes it attractive. Now, the second year because this is a two year contract for at and T. TV guess what it's GonNa jump up to one hundred, eighty, three dollars. Now. I would be paying one, hundred, eighty, three dollars already if I was subscribing to that package with at and T. TV now. So it's so that's the thing that makes it attractive is it has that big first year discount. What's weird is though why? Why have the two things? Here's here's the one. You can have our box and our remote and a two year contract, or you can have all the same channels. For just using the APP now I don't if there are some major channel difference I don't I'm not aware of it. As of yet we're going to get to that in a future episode. You'll see why. So. Because I've seen you know because ATV has their own box. I wanted to try it. I've wanted to try wanted to try to do not like the idea of a two year contract I do not I hate that. But here's what I'm doing you last night I subscribed at and T. TV the boxes on its way it's going to be here anytime. Possibly this afternoon. And I'm and I've got fourteen days to try out the bucks. As. Long as I send that box back on day thirteen than then everything will be cancelled and I'm not gonNa be charged so far I haven't paid a dime. You know I've subscribed to everything everything's good. But here's what's interesting. Right. So last night go to at and TV I set up on I id I subscribe boom they sent me an email your box will be sent to you. Please enjoy all the streaming that you want right now and guess what you download you download the APP which is basically at and T. TV. Now you log in with the account information that you set up and you start streaming immediately. So right now already I'm watching at and T. TV now on the TV now, which is really now the at and TV APP and I'm already streaming everything without the bucks. So what makes the box so important why? Why have a box as part of your streaming service when when as soon as someone signs up they start streaming without your box?.

Right they in many many cases they would say they're overpriced however if you look at all of their packages. You come. Very close. With all of their packages, you come very close of getting pretty much every reach Ma- major channel that you want available. Now, there are some major exceptions the too big I think glaring holes and what they offer, and they're probably a couple of more but the ones that just jumped out at me at the NFL network and NFL red zone. Why it's not currently available I have no idea if at and T. TV now could get that available. That would be that would be major. That would be big. But at and T. TV now, the packages again I believe they are the. Need to reduce the price, they've upped the prices but I, think here's what's going to happen. Youtube. TV. They've upped their prices. I think we're GONNA, see a I think we're going to start seeing a price in increase on pretty much all the streaming services. So if you want live TV. That, there's all the prices are GONNA go up. I just think I think that's what we're looking. At and T. TV right now maybe the most expensive. But here's the thing. On their service if you go look at all of their packages, you can ultimately get. Pretty much every channel available out there. You can pretty much get them right there. Now here's what makes that interesting. Let's say again, I've already given example. If, I'm if I have Hulu I can't get paramount TV. So I'm going to subscribe to something else to get that. So then I've got to services to different. Two different services to different bills and just to get the channels that I want. But if you could do all on. TV. Now one service..

"Good morning everyone, and welcome to the currently on podcast. Today is Monday August the twenty fourth two, thousand, twenty it is currently eleven forty two am central time and I'm coming to you from Abilene Texas. Well, in this episode, I'm going to begin something that I think will be very unique. It's going to be different I. Don't know how successful it's going to be, but I think there's a need for it. Here's what I'm going to do beginning in this episode, I'm going to take the next few episodes I. Don't know how long it's going to take but starting in this one, and then maybe three, maybe four I don't know how how many. But over the next few episodes I'm going to try to provide a very detailed and comprehensive review of at and T. TV. Now you may be thinking why why do multiple episodes? That's weird and I understand most reviews are done in one episode but. I think whenever you're doing a review like for something like at and T. TV where there are so many opinions a lot of negative opinions about it. And you're dealing obviously with television streaming television. I think there's a lot of different issues to be talked about and I have spent hours watching a lot of the reviews posted on Youtube about. TV and to be honest with you no matter how long the episode is whether they take twenty minutes whether they take almost an hour. I really feel that none of the reviews have really answered. The questions that I have have really covered the things that I think need to be covered, and in some cases, the reviews have been downright misleading and contain wrong information and false information. So I thought you know what? I, I have basically subscribed to every TV streaming service. There is. I I was using direct TV. Literally I was there in Omaha Nebraska. The they I was walking through a mall and I I think it was in the seer sears department store at a mall in. An Omaha Nebraska and all of a sudden they wheeled out this big cart and I'm like, wait what's that and they're like there's this new thing called direct TV I'm like. Well, what is it and I said, well, it's like satellite TV, but it's not one of those big satellites. It's like a little miniature kind of small satellite and I'm like, oh. That's interesting. How much is it and they told me and I'm like. Okay I can afford it. So I purchased it I didn't really I. Didn't know how to hook it up I didn't really know what channels were available. It was just one of those end pulse I'm going to try it and I took it home and was using direct TV satellite television and nobody even knew what it was and it was it was crazy. It was a fun experience I remember I didn't even know how. All of my expertise. I know how I can set up stereo equipment I can set up audio equipment I can calibrate your Oltra Hi Four K. television but when it comes to installing and mounting a satellite dish. That requires tools that I don't know how to use. Okay I know. So what I did is I I literally said it outright. My Door I. Just propped it up with some bricks and that pointed in the right direction like that's a good signal strength and boom I went back started watching direct. TV. Finally helped me kind of get it mounted on a pole somewhere but a, yes, I was using satellite television I I mean I don't know if it was available and other parts of the country before then but I just know that the second it showed up at a mall and Omaha Nebraska I just happened to be standing there and they said, I, was the very first person to purchase one of because I mean, they just put amount. and..

There is a service that used to be called direct. Tv Now which is like sling TV or Hulu live or Youtube TV. You just you pay for it. You get an APP. You Watch it but there's another service that's called. At and T. TV and the difference is it doesn't say now and it's trying to be for people who aren't in the cord cutting it's trying be for folks who were like. Oh I wanna I wanNA switch my cable to. At and T. Or or in the past would have switched to direct TV. The satellite service and says. Oh Great. We'll send you a cable box. It runs over your Internet. It's a one hundred twenty dollars for extra boxes but you get one bundled in and it starts at fifty. Everything is very similar to cable. Tv You have a contract you have an introductory price. They provide the equipment. But it's easier. It's easier setup because you don't have to put a satellite dish on top and in fact. At and T. Says they will be reducing the marketing of direct TV. They're going to be phasing out the satellite service as we know. The rumors are trying to find a buyer for it and replacing it with this android TV bucks but it's confusing because there is a very similarly named product that is a streaming service that you or I might WanNa get on our Roku or anything if you're like. Why would I need a box? You don't it's not that's not marketed to you. This is marketed to people who don't understand. That could go into this themselves or don't want to my mom who has been a customer of direct. Tv for some time and you know it's it's expensive. It's every time she tells me how much it costs and sort of the hassles of like which brooms can have which. Tv's AMAC MOM. We gotta we gotta get something better for. You Youtube. Tv's my solution. That's like the one that I've just sort of figured out is kind of the cheapest and works the best but I'm also running everything through either a roker apple. Tv This is super confusing. I mean for the show. I obviously understand how it works but as a just like regular consumer I would just be like what are we regular consumer. You're probably not going to hear about both of them right. My guess is yeah right. So they're going to break this to people who would not hear about TV now they'll just not provides TV and otherwise the content channels that are available on. Both services are pretty much the same. I think right now. At and T. TV now bundles in HBO in their Bottom Service so it technically is more expensive. But you're also getting. Hbo They're going to put in HBO. Max Integrated with both of these. I do think it's weird that it's an android box in there saying it doesn't have Hulu or prime video. I don't know if that it's not integrated into the guide. The Way Net flicks is yeah or totally unavailable. Which would be weird. Because I don't think bill would let you use android and do that. I think you'd have to be able to install the APP so curious about that sharp announced it will convert part of an LCD panel factory in Osaka Japan to make surgical masks with the domestic supply exhausted amid the Cova. Nineteen outbreak. Sharp says they'll be able to produce one hundred fifty thousand masks today within weeks and could eventually reach five hundred thousand. Foxconn previously converted a factory in Shenzhen China to partial mask production as well. Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo obey promised to make six hundred million mass available every month. A masks are worn as part of being courteous in Japan. If you want to stop the spread of droplets out of your mouth There's sometimes worn for preventative. They're not as effective for that. Us and UK Health Advice. Is that the masks are useful for some high-risk patients if they're born and used properly and they are definitely useful for surgical masks for health practitioners in certain situations but and this is a quote from the UK. There is very little evidence of widespread benefit for members of the public and the problem is people who don't need them are stockpiling them and that means that the people who do need them aren't able to get them yeah. It was just having a conversation with a friend over the weekend. She was like the everywhere. I've been looking on like the second market for masks. I was like are you sick. Do you know someone who like. It really does sort of It matters like if you are ill if you feel and you have to go into public for some reason yes this makes a lot of sense. The the stockpiling and the perhaps overproduction of masks in factories that would otherwise I'M NOT GONNA say it's a bad idea but it does have no. There's so much fear mongering going on right now. It's it's sort of difficult to understand you know what's the right thing to do I i. I'm very used to being around people wearing surgical masks depending on where you are in the world It's a little bit more normal than other places but it does seem like if you are not ill. I'm not hearing reports that it's going to keep you from getting no in fact quite the opposite and there are some very specific uses. That are that. Make it useful in a hospital situation and that's why we're needing to ramp up television factories and foxconn factories to create masks for those purposes because people are stockpiling them in other situations. Moving on business insider calls Google Stadia flailing and attributes that to develop her concerns specifically. That developers were hesitant to develop for the platform. Because Google didn't offer them enough money. Developers will take less money to reach a huge audience. Like steam but stadium doesn't have that audience just yet kinda ramping up to it. So developers are like what are we doing and they might take less money to be on the platform early before it grows but they don't trust the company to stick with the platform because Google. Yeah this set the people. I follow on twitter on fire yesterday. Because they're like see because they cancel. Google reader. Stadium is flailing. I'm not sure it's a little bit of an overreaction to say Google Stadia is failing. Maybe flailing isn't too far off but it's early days still and I think Google has the ability to stick with this money into it. They're going to have a few couple hundred games by the end of the early. One hundred twenty. I think something like that but there is a valid that whether it's valid to believe it or not. It's valid that people do worry. Google won't stick with this. This is not the same as reader. This is not a free service that they were floating out there and decided wasn't profitable and decided to end. This is a huge effort. It's more if you WANNA have a concern comparable to google fiber where they rolled it out and then paused and said well hold on. We're not gonNA Google fiber anymore while we figure out what to do. And that's been a couple of years because that was a big effort. They haven't got rid of Google fiber though and I think stadia is very similar to that where they don't think they're just gonNA pull the plug. One day. The way they did with Google reader they're not comparable situations. Yeah I I feel for developers who are like I mean. How much does this company really care? There's so many initiatives you know on the inside so I can see where there would be concerned that said yes. I wouldn't compare this to google reader at all I. Would you know as a as a Gamer for people who care about various platforms studio? Doesn't get a really great rap. I mean we've had lots of conversations on the show about like this student there. We'll see we'll see you know that sort of like the best situation and so in that sense that's really where it matters to. God so no sorry I was GONNA say. I think that's much of a conservative delivers as whether Google will kill it or not is like I. Did my audience getting excited about it either. Well facebook launched three photos on its APP back in two thousand eighteen. You may have forgotten You will camera smartphones deposed images with backgrounds that moved when scrolling or tilting a device facebook now announced that it can produce three photos from virtually any two D image. Will of that make you more interested. that means ones that you've already uploaded to the service could be converted to three. D When we say three D. It's kind of a portrait mode where the background SORTA shifts you get a little para lax. You know but it's it's an empty trick. He uses a neural network to map the estimated depth of each pixel in a two d image something previously supplied by the secondary portrait camera. Viewing the photos requires the facebook mobile APP or an iphone seven or newer or a recent mid range android device. Your device has to be able to show the pera lax to to show the three but the neural network can do it pretty much. Any you've uploaded. I had like three friends who use this feature regularly on facebook. And you know you sort of move your mouse around the phone. You're like oh it's a picture of your dog and like like slightly moves left or right. I have yet to be wowed by this. But if you have a Tutti image that can get rendered into some three D. cents. I still think it's sort of a hat trick. Like who cares. But it's cool that it is possible. Yeah I mean it's nifty thing It's yeah it's A. I think I was curious about it. Because it's an example of using neural networks in public. You know this this is a thing they can do. It may not be that useful to you but it is definitely a thing they can do which is take that two d image and and figure out how to do it without having to have that second image and that's an advanced that's an event in absolutely it's it's it's it's cool because it's cool that's kind of to say about that. Alphabets lab announced a new project called title. This is not the music service title. This is something very different title is working to protect the ocean. The first project uses computer vision with underwater cameras to monitor individual fish in fish farms and detect behavior that isn't visible to the human eye which could let farmers make more efficient decisions for example. How much food they need to put him pens in feeding raising the fish leading to fewer environmental impacts the Financial Times reported. That title is working with farms based in Europe and Asia to attract several species including salmon and yellow tail. Yeah this is. Another is almost similar to the facebook neural network story. Which is this is early days. And who knows how much of an impact this is really going to have. But it's a use of computer vision in this case neural network per se but but very close closely related actually might be neural network for this but using computer vision to be able to monitor behavior without knowing what that behavior is. You don't need a person sitting there counting. You know the food you can you let the Computer Vision Algorithm determinate and that can tell you whether you need to add.

"What kind of cool a story about technology is that by the early early Nineteen Seventy S. You're starting to come up with these cool computerized tools that can be used to measure viewer response. You don't have to input letters. There's anymore. You can have a child watching a program like Sesame Street and holding this thing that kind of looks like a calculator and whenever they like anything that happens on screen the press a button and like the mother computer will measure the the exact time that they pressed the button and that response and then that information can be fed into a master spreadsheet and used to create a graph that shows not just when susie press that button but also rickie press that button to see which kids responded well like moment by moment to an entire program so yeah so oh. CDW uses the data to create sesame street. They use it very well to create the electric company so it makes sense that they're going to use this data to to create something. That is a science show. The most interesting study that they do. I find is the television like a research interest survey where they survey around four thousand children nationally ages again about eight to twelve twelve about what they're watching on TV in one thousand nine hundred seventy five and it's amazing turns out kids are watching a lot of happy days as they love wonder woman they're interested in you know little house on the prairie in the biotic man but one thing that is concerning to the viewer to people who are understanding the viewer responses is is that these kids are not really watching any science programming so in this period there are a number of sort of kind of science shows on air including one that is a pseudoscience show called in search of and in search for your listeners who don't know it is a show that is hosted by Leonard Nimoy who was Mr Spock in Star Trek and every week he has a serious look at scientific issue like it is felt by some scientist that bigfoot fall somewhere in this progressive charter man giant Hamad Um and related to but not like modern man according to this theory bigfoot would've pursued a course evolution separate but parallel to his human cousins and so what the survey done by c. t. w. shows is then nineteen seventy five which is when you have shows like Nova on air there were more kids leads who are watching in search of than over and so that's probably probably skewing what they're really thinking of science so that's like interesting that they find and that makes everyone very uncomfortable and very unhappy and it really propels this research because they say sort of. Oh Crud. We actually need to get a science show on air. Kids can watch spend two years doing research and then the research team hands the the information over to the writers at the same time they're also trying to develop and get information from particular communities rights they survey African American scientists and Latino scientists and they try to find a group of Asian American scientist interview as well to get a sense of what ways that people in those communities think that the science on scientists specifically on the shows should be represented so it's a three to one contact is a program. Yes put by put together together by committee it is I mean what else would you expect from the people who put together sesame street right you know they have this positive image of America and and I think thank everyone who joined H W in those years was very very young very idealistic. They really thought they were helping to make the automatic. They knew they were helping to make the world. A better place.

"So Nova changes the landscape of science programming for grownups but in you walk us through the evolution of how that becomes science programming for kids I mean the last thing we talk about right is Mr Wizard which is fun and great but how does that become the science programming. We know today for kids in the nineteen nineteen seventies you have Nova. They're really interested in creating this hard hitting content and then you have a group of educators and television producers who served and writers which coalesce up in New York City and become the children's television workshop and and this is a group of people who are really interested in creating content and educational material for Young Children and and finding ways to present a I think a more positive upbeat vision of the future for these young kids and so yeah so w as this group become known launches their very first series of nine hundred sixty nine which is known own out sesame street right yeah yeah and it's a hit sesame street has like a smash hit like you know by the early nineteen seventy s every child in America knows who big bird is and so children's television workshop rolls along with another hit series called the electric company. No they're smash hit people of the Electric Company. It's got Rita Moreno. It's this really cool. bopping program teaches early literacy skills and so the people who put together that program say hey could we do about science pat's an idea and so they spend a couple of years brainstorming this program that eventually becomes known as three we to one contact.

"All right so ingrid to start us off. Tell us about why you're interested in this subject. What are you thinking about science on TV. I think think I've always been very interested in the public presentation of science. One of my earliest memories is being a kid. Remember how in the nineteen nineties everyone was obsessed by cloning like that was a big thing like Dolly the sheep was a big thing right yes and so I remember very vividly going to a lecture with with my mother and then we would go to science luxury were little because my mom was working on finishing her bachelors and she would take us and we would be allowed to sit in the back of these you know lectures but couldn't say anything. We just had to be quiet but I remember there. Was this one lecture about cloning and I was my mother said you can ask a question and I was like Oh. This is going to be great and I was like nine right. That's n deal yeah. It was a good deal right and so I remember the very end. I was really nervous but I got to ask the professor question and like I don't even remember what it was but the the thrill of being like Oh my God I can. I'm talking to a scientist about something and I think in some ways. It's it's that excitement that carried through to into this project. Basically it's this interest in sort of what about these spaces that recreate where our people can who knew nothing about science at all like you know little nine year old. Ingrid can go and talk to US scientists and be like Gee whiz. Mr Scientists what's up. That's amazing. I love it so okay before we talked. I guess I kind of took science and TV for granted. I mean now there are shows about everything baking in home renovation singing etcetera etcetera but science. TV started somewhere so who started it and well why so in the the the nineteen forty s and the nineteen fifties before public broadcasting exists the people who are putting these programs are on our commercial broadcasters right and they're driven by their own interests like namely to make money right and then to increase the public trust in what they're doing and so for for instance. You have a program that would run on. NBC called Mister Wizard and it was put on by NBC to show their viewers viewers that they could be a trustworthy station which was especially important after the quiz scandals of the late nineteen fifties where turned out that they were some people who had sort of played the odds l. legally chosen who's going to win and lose a certain you know episodes of the TV show in the Senate hearing room dramatic climax of the probe Picton Quiz Show Charles Van Doren wife from Potter poet Mark Van Doren are in the audience as committee chairman Senator Orrin Harris Open community and so then especially it was important for broadcast. NBC Lisa showed their audience that hey we care about people. You know we care about the education of future generations and we're doing. We're proving that to you by having a culture like Mister Wizard on watch Mr Wizard. That's what all the kids in the neighborhood call him because he shows them the magic and mystery three of science in everyday living besides mister wizard. Tell us where we're GONNA go. What shows are you going to walk us through today. So the shows I look at are the Johns Hopkins Science view which is very very first science program in the United States. I look at watch Mr Wizard which is the very well known own science program that errors in the United States Nova which is a game changer. I Love Nova. It really changes everything as a science series. I looked at three two one in contact which is a program that was put on by the same people who put on the Electric Company and Sesame Street which is Super Fun and Cosmo's which was put on my Carl Sagan. The very first science show is called the Johns Hopkins Science Review starts in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight and it is produced directed and written by Lynn Poole who is this sort of small slightly owlish guy who doesn't look like much but he actually has this extensive background and modern dance and Vaudeville Vaudeville and theater which was why he was hired by Johns Hopkins University in the nineteen forties us to be their public relations bureau and so he decides to help get this university national read. He's going to host a show. Oh that weekly looks different issues in science and specifically talks to different professors at the university who are professors of engineering and Medicine Edison and so it's kind of a nice way to display what's going on at Johns Hopkins University. The problem of water purification and the disposal of sewage is a problem The sanitary engineer takes care of four US and is a problem that keeps us in good health. The science of sanitary engineering is one which requires great skill and knowledge combining many different fields of time and so he has some cool guests on as well like like Verna von Braun who later becomes a host on Disney's programs about space and he's like a German like rocket scientist guy. Why and WHO's watching this show adults kids a mix? It might help us understand that the main gene folks who are watching television in the fifties are wealthy white women and there's been some studies done saying that a lot of these women might have had scientific training and so they they were they were reading a lot of books about science anyways the market for Popular Science paperbacks actually increases substantially in this period so you've got a lot of bored housewives at home basically and they're trying to do something and and Lynn poole figures that one thing that they might be interested in is having a show about science that they can in watching the evenings. He actually himself is very much a feminist. He has women on his staff his wife gray a pool helps him right the Johns Hopkins Science Review and one of the things that I really enjoyed researching the ways that they become this dynamic power couple early on on so again. It's an interesting show and again. It's mainly for the family but with a special focus on women and we can tell this because there are programs programs that are more feminine that are on air about the science of dish soap the science of training your dog the science ends of using jewels and like diamonds in industry and it's an interesting show aw because again in so much that they're using a lot of this these gendered subjects the talk about science they are doing so in a way that still respectful of women they have a lot of women who are scientists on the program and that's unusual for the time but again. I think a lot of that comes not from from and this is where I'm very careful to delineate. It's not because science was progressive in the nineteen fifties. It's not that scientists not progressive in the Nineteen Fifty S. It's because Lynn poole was progressive in the nineteen fifties and so the Johns Hopkins Science Review is a show that very much goes back back to this early vision of Ions about science being wonderful and specifically looking at the ways that science can help you out in in your daily life and that's a quality shared by the other charismatic host of the Science Program of the Era Don Herbert who runs a show called watch Mr Wizard and and mister wizard is a youngest guy kind of in his thirty S. He was a World War Two bomber pilot which there's something that the newspapers make a lot of fuss about they show pictures of him in his bomber jacket and Mister Wizard Word Don Herbert actually is the first celebrity scientist he's the first person who becomes a yeah well known for his role as actor playing scientist on TV and because of that get sort of called a personality around him Lynn poole cool who hosts the Johns Hopkins Science Review is a very interesting charismatic guy and he definitely hosts a program. He's the focus in the face of the program but he doesn't have have the same levels of adoration that Mister Wizard has in the nineteen fifties into the nineteen sixties Khuzdar but stay right here because I have a problem for you. I want you to turn on the light but before you do I want you to see if you can't estimate how long it takes from the time you flick the switch rich and to light comes on what's mister wizard apart. I mean aside from the bomber jacket which I love. Why.

"To find a way to reconcile their particular religious interpretation and their desire not to be homophobic but I also think other other times it can be kind of a trap to get into this like nickel and diming like here's why I'm a person or like here's why it's not evil to be Queer and I think it's good if you decide to engage in that kind of discourse to have an exit strategy because at some point if someone is just not willing to listen to y you're a person or y your relationships have meaning and dignity and value then you could run yourself ragged trying to say like and again if we look at the original the era. I'm a person yeah that can feel really demeaning so yeah. I go back and forth on that not that I think it's a total waste of time. Just you can easily get sucked into like Oh God. The last fifteen years of my life have been spent arguing about my humanity with these people and I don't know if the letter writers parents are homophobic homophobic because they believe that's the correct interpretation of their faith or if they are homophobic and that is a convenient reason for homophobia and that is hard because I genuinely do think there are people in both camps and you don't always know which one is which some people are like boy sure like to to be able to have a reason to to put down and there are other people who are like. I will grab it any reason. Why can't put this homophobia down and it doesn't matter? I'm keeping keeping phobia so yeah but good luck. I think it is totally an understandable to let them know how made you feel and don't want the fact that they're in their early seventies. Make thank you feel like well. It's just my job to swallow stuff absolutely nothing to dish out whatever they want and congratulations on your marriage yeah that's wonderful and I'm so glad and now your parents don't have any sort of like I ken writes. I can the sonnet expression the hospital rules. The hospital hospital rules thank you. I will eventually have my brain back. Let's and on challenging but hopeful note about out you know hope for the future. What are the children doing. How do we collectively bind up. One another's wounds the subject is thirteen year olds. I gay crush dear dear prudence. My thirteen year old daughter just told me that she has a crush on a girl millie. This is obviously big news. It's not a big deal in our family which has several other LGBTQ BTU members. My worry is that my daughter wants to save the world and she told me that her crush has some concerning problems. MILLEY's coming out to her family has resulted in physical and emotional abuse. She has had bouts of self harm and probably an eating disorder a doe only daughter to think that my concerns about this potential relationship have anything to do with being gay as we live in the big south. I'm sorry the big south. My brain is not here all right. There's the big south new small south. We live in the the deep south so she's worried about acceptance but I have some real concerns. How do I support her. And how do I help her support milly without taking too much responsibility on for Malays mental health issues. My first question here is what is the nature of this physical abuse and is there someone one at the school who is a mandated reporter that you can report this to yeah. I wrote. CPS question mark at the top of my paper I used to work at a high school well and we had a called a cost referral who was like the coordination of services team an anyone could fill out a cost referral for a student apparent another student a teacher so I would find out if your school has something similar Um and what that does. In many schools is it sends that report to a team mm-hmm of professionals at the school who decide is this. A counseling need is a CPS need is this a nursing need an academic support need because those are going to be the group of adults who will have the tools to meet. Melly where she is yeah yeah if she's thirteen years old and she's being physically and emotionally abused for coming out That's a kid who needs a lot of help. She does not have a lot of resources. It's like she. Can you know drive away and like crash at a friend's ends house. It's not like she can go. Get A job and save up money like she is. A young teenager and physical abuse for queer kids is is really serious. I I think before you go to your kid and say like we can't save everybody. You actually need to step in and intervene as as a as an adult here I think so yeah I would say talk to the school guidance counselor. I think this stuff about filing different. Reports is excellent but but you need to make sure or that this kid is not that her abuse is not going totally ignored yeah because it's clearly it's manifesting in some pretty serious self harm harm yeah yeah. That's the serious red flag to me. This isn't just like a you know. She receives regular not repaired if therapy her parents are doing their best I with her. She's dealing with these ongoing issues but all the adults in her life are doing right by this is like this kid is in crisis right now. and I think this kind of self harm could seriously point towards like this is a significant cry for help. This means that she's slipping through the cracks. Something more serious could happen at any point and somebody who's an adult and who's responsible needs to intervene so that's your first priority beyond that you know talking to your kid about outweighs in which you can try to help and support somebody in crisis ways in which it's also okay to say you know. I cannot see this person all by myself. how do I find ways to also look after myself and make sure that I don't feel like I'm the only person standing in between this person disaster. That's really important stuff that you know. I think any kid kind of needs to learn especially. If your kid is of the type that's like when someone's going through a crisis their antenna kind of perk up like how can help because it's a really good instinct and and it can also sometimes result in your kid running themselves ragged trying to fix everybody and so that's a really good opportunity to like both affirm that as a lovely quality in her and also to talk about what are some reasonable limits. I agree. I think it's a great time for thirteen is great time for the sex. Ed Conversation about what is a healthy relationship. Asian ship look like whether that's a friendship or romantic relationship with her boundaries. and I wrote down to book recommendations their Middle Grade novels levels both are about protagonists who have someone in their life with depression end so eleven twelve thirteen year olds wrestling with how do I love and support with this person I care about who is also dealing with serious mental illness. I'm one is called nest by Esther Ehrlich and the other is the science of breakable things by take Heller great names. Yeah Yeah Yeah I I love that idea and then I think beyond that your kid is also thirteen so it's not like she can go like drive arrive off and get a motel room with millie so I think having these conversations will be great but beyond that. I don't think you need to do a lot right now. Aside live from the stuff about reporting this just because any dates that they would potentially go on would probably be you'd have to drive them. You know you would be involved so it does not sound like you don't say like my daughter's losing sleep or you know. MILLEY's runaway in his trying to spend the night here ear or or you know I like found them like running off to the big city together so I think mostly the things that you should be concerning yourself with are making making reports and then also talking to your daughter a lot about how can we be helpful to me. How can we also take care of ourselves. Take a little space. Make sure that you don't feel like it's your job. You know we have responsibilities as concerned outsiders in this situation but it is not your were sold job to fix milly with your love and to make her life perfect. Here's what we can do. Here's what we can't yeah. I think it would also be worth a conversation about millie only self harm and eating disorder yeah yeah tell your kid that like Germany questions about that Is there something that we could read together together to learn more about like what that's like or why people do that to kind of demystify some of it Did you have any other thoughts about how that conversation would go or I just I remember those kinds of things I felt like we're kind of a wildfire in eighth and ninth grade which is around the age that the letter writers daughter is and so just just having a conversation of yet demystifying talking about what that represents and what are some healthier coping mechanisms for dealing with the kind of pain yeah yeah. I think all that's going to be really really useful because I think the thing that you sort of want to protect your kid from which is like a lifetime of like having a big old heart and often responding to vulnerability ability with like big hard is that's probably going to be a part of your kids character for a big chunk of her life so I think you can encourage her to develop tools to kind of make sure that she also looks after herself but you know it's. I think it's kind of hard like when you start to identify like Oh. I think this is is going to be the thing that sometimes makes life hard for you. You can't wish that away. You can't discipline it away. Your kid will probably always have a certain big big response to like. Oh no you're not doing well. Let me help so rather than like. How do I make sure my kid never goes down that path or never falls for you. No trouble brooding sensitive types who are in trouble that might just be the type of person. They're often drawn to so rather than worrying about like how do redirect to like look at that person who's just totally got their stuff together and is treated really well. Why don't you fall in love with them. Instead like that won't get you really many places says but I think what you can do is talk about like you know. What do you feel drawn to hear. What you feel like you're the limits of what you can and can't do. How is your parent be helpful. What are impractical useful reminders for you about like maintaining your other interests getting enough sleep talking the other friends etcetera etcetera without like signaling. I'm freaked freaked out about this. I want you to get over this. I want you to like somebody whose life is easy and simple that will make your kid feel like a ha type of dive straight into Romeo and Juliet style stuff yeah. Does that make sense yeah. You can't stop who could from wanting what they want yeah you can. Maybe give them some tools to want it in a healthy way yeah. I think that's a really good point and you know good luck. I hope that filing this report helps Millie I hope hope that somebody is prioritising her safety elps. She's able to go somewhere where she's not harmed for being gay I hope that this produces good good positive safe results for her. I agree and congratulations on having a daughter feels comfortable coming out to you yeah yeah. That's really like that. Part really warms warms my heart. Even though the problems of the young kids are really stressful and difficult and painful I also just feel amazed that like at eleven twelve and thirteen they're already out to some family members and receiving some forms of support that just like who it's hard to imagine yeah a world has changed yeah..

"CBS that passing commonsense. Legislation to end the epidemic of gun violence that we will make America more American by protecting dreamers and TPS recipients make America more just by checking people with preexisting conditions. Expanding access to healthcare and lowering the price of prescription drugs and defending Medicare, and Medicaid, and we will strengthen our democracy, bypassing the equality at that is an act to end discrimination against L D L G T TV community. It's really a shame. What's happening with the Democrats have become radicalized? They don't wanna see crime staff, which we can very easily on the southern border at it really is a shame. What's happening with the Democrats? This will go on for awhile. Ultimately, the American people will have their way because they wanna see no crime. They wanna see what we're doing today. We lowered prescription drug prices first time in fifty is they want to see that the Democrats would never have been able to do that. So we're all working very hard. We'll have to respond to it will respond to it in a timely matter. Thank you very much. I like this. I liked that we get to hear the different agendas. I this is politics Nancy Pelosi who's just mumbling some nonsense about commonsense gun reform. You know, if it's so common sense. You shouldn't have to say it. You know that that to me is tell. Trump is saying that, you know, he's got an agenda that he wants to follow through on things that would be really beneficial for the American people. Ultimately Pelosi knows that none of her agendas going through. It's not happening. Trump won't allow that to happen because he thinks that her ideas are bad. And I think our ideas are bad. But I do think that it's important for them to be aired out in front of all of the at least the American people are paying attention to this for those Americans who avoid carrying politics. I I envy them. That's a nice. That's a nice thing. I'm a political junkie can't help it. But the shutdown is is going to be a real test of wills here. The heat is definitely going to get churned up as you have people going longer without paychecks. Although I also know that Pelosi's made it very clear, she doesn't, you know. This is what Democrats do all the time. They pretend to care so much about the little guy or a little gal who's in a rough place, and you're not getting their paycheck Pelosi, please she's gonna she's get a jaunt off for her boondoggle overseas, you got better things to do than worry about the TSA employees. I'll be honest with you. In her own mind. At least she thinks she does. So this Karen so much about the little guy is one of the Democrats favorite ploys. And it's so full of it. Yeah. Nancy pelosi.
