Mon. 09/28 - Time Travel, Biomedical Tattoos, & Satanic Tea
"Welcome to the he ride home for Monday September, Twenty Eighth Two, thousand, twenty I'm Jackson buried. In undergrad has proving that paradox free time travel is indeed possible. If you thought email newsletters were ubiquitous. Now let me introduce you to the world of Nineteen Thirties mimeograph newsletters. The emerging field of biomedical Tattoos and the Satanic Tea Company here to bust stereotypes. Here are some of the cool things from the news today. An undergraduate at the University of Queensland has apparently proven that time travel without paradoxes is possible. This is from a new paper published last week in the journal classical and quantum gravity by the student Germane to bar and his professor Fabio Kosta quoting popular mechanics. The math itself is complex, but it boils down to something fairly simple time travel discussion focuses on closed time like curves or CTC's something Albert Einstein I posited until Barton cost say that as long as. Just two pieces of an entire scenario within a C. T. C. or still in causal order when you leave the rest is subject to local free will I results show that C. T. C.'s are not only compatible with determinism and with the local free choice of operations but also with a rich and diverse range of scenarios in dynamical processes, their paper concludes end quote. In other words stepping on a butterfly during a dinosaur hunting expedition would not entirely change the present world returned to and the way Mardi MC fly prevented his parents from meeting or accidentally left behind a sports ALMANAC for biff defined would not drastically change his present reality either. Instead, the mathematical research shows that time travel would be more akin to vendors endgame something that matches the findings from Los, Alamos Laboratory earlier this summer. Side No. Los. Alamos is also one of the few labs messing around with plutonium. So All I'm saying is if you see a delorean cruising around New Mexico, maybe watch out. But essentially, the findings say that you can go back to the past and mess with things a little bit but it will basically smooth over and eventually lead to the same results preventing things like the grandfather paradox in which you go back in time, kill your own grandfather, and then prevent yourself the time traveller from ever existing. To Warren constant used relevant example from our present time to put their complex math into plain language quoting a press statement by the researchers say you traveled in time in an attempt to stop covid nineteen patient zero from being exposed to the virus? However, if you stopped that individual from becoming infected that would eliminate the motivation for you to go back and stop the pandemic in the first place this is a paradox been inconsistency that often leads people to think that time travel cannot occur in our universe. Logically, it's hard to accept because that would affect our freedom to make any arbitrary action. It would mean you can time travel. You cannot do anything that would cause a paradox to occur. In the coronavirus patient zero example, you might try and stop patient zero from becoming infected, but in doing so you would catch the virus and would become patient zero or someone else would no matter what you did. The salient events would just recalibrate around you try. As you might to create a paradox, the events will always adjust themselves to avoid any inconsistency end quotes. So our timelines are a bit more self-correcting than we thought and trying to adjust the time line. We're currently living in to go back to one where perhaps a different person won an election and the berinstain bears are still the Bernstein bears probably isn't going to happen. As NPR quoted from Stephen, King's time travel novel eleven twenty to sixty three about trying to prevent the Kennedy assassination quotes. The past is obdurate. It doesn't want to be changed. Remember when everyone knew was starting a podcast. Well I guess that's actually still happening bit. But in some ways, it's been eclipsed by everyone starting a newsletter almost every writer journalist General Internet Creator Personality I know of has a tiny letter or sub stack these days gene cocky and I talked about this phenomena a little bit on the weekend bonus episode of this show on September nineteenth would you should absolutely go listen to if you haven't yet we? discussed how email newsletters are perhaps the closest current analog of personal expression to what blogs once were in fact, and Freedman Author Co host of the podcast call your girlfriend and writer of the an Friedman weekly newsletter told Vanity Fair last year that around two thousand thirteen when personal newsletters really started taking off again, the starting one was quote fully recognized as what you do because you don't blog anymore and quotes. And it certainly solves the issue of how do I read your blog that Jason, mentioned he's heard from Newark potential readers who skipped over the blogging. Feed days just send your blog street to people's INBOXES. Now so many people have their own email newsletters that vanity fair and others declared were at peak newsletter even the Rusty Foster, the creator of one of my personal favorite. Now, defunct newsletters today in tabs has said quote peak newsletter has been happening continuously since like nineteen, eighty, six and quotes. And wired says, peak newsletter goes even further back and their lead for the story on that is yearly accurate to our times quotes. By the time Claude cut burn resigned from his post as foreign correspondent for the Times of London. He'd grown sick of the newspapers conservative streak but even as a freelancer, he continued to struggle with what he saw as the media's complacency toward the rise of ultra nationalist movements around the world. So he tried a new approach he'd start a newsletter and make himself a brand cock burns. I issue went out to subscribers in March nineteen, thirty, three end quote. Wired points to two key reasons that hordes of journalists fall in copper footsteps in the decades to come and went to independent sources of publication, both of which are relevant to today's newsletter trend as well. Accessibility of new technology and a lack of confidence in the news media. As for technology, the mimeograph which had been around since the late eighteen hundreds was finally being mass produced for consumers and praised at about the modern equivalent of five, hundred thousand dollars, and it wasn't just popular for independent journalists. It led to a boom in chapter books especially among Allen Ginsberg and his Coterie fanzines in. The LGBTQ, plus publications like the Internet and social media for us. Now, the mainstream accessibility of this technology enabled Nisha and minority populations to communicate with one another and share their stories when no major media streams would dare to do so. And it was that homogeneous entity of the major news publications that also led many journalists to part ways with their employers and start up shop as independent journalists quoting wired at the time public trust in mainstream media was wavering newspapers were making good money, but they were also increasingly turning into a monopoly from nineteen twenty three to nineteen, forty, three, the number of US towns with at least two daily newspapers dropped from five hundred to two hundred, thirty, seven according to media historian. Victor Cards Book. America's battle for media democracy at the time the popular perception was that newspapers were a bastion of conservative not liberal politics driven by the interests of big business. By the end of the nineteen thirties, many papers were fiercely opposed to the new deal and labor organizing stances that would alienate large numbers of readers as card shows the growing market consolidation paired with these ideological concerns led thousands of Americans in the nineteen forties to pack panels with titles like is the American press, really free and quotes. and. The newsletters of the thirties through the fifties really took off Claude Cock Burns newsletter was popular enough to be read by the likes of Charlie Chaplin and King Edward The seventh and was the original outlet to break the news of the threat of Francisco Franco just before the coup that would lead to his rise to power journalist George cells published what was probably the most popular newsletter of the day reaching over a hundred seventy, six thousand people at its peak including Eleanor Roosevelt Harry Truman and a large number of sitting senators newsletters were sold. In like minded bookstores and newsstands, as well as via subscription with Union subscriptions being one of the particularly powerful moods of proliferation and profit for left leaning publications and Conservative raiders eventually got in on the game too. But those modes of distribution eventually dried up and as they are want to do traditional publishers and corporations got in on the game making it much harder for independent journalists to make a living on newsletters anymore by the sixties and seventies, newsletters had to rely almost exclusively on direct mailing and one third of all independent newsletters failed each year. The. Good news in a way at the time was that the newspaper industry was actually booming while many journalists chose to go independent for ideological or passion reasons they could easily find a well paying job with the newspaper. Again, if need be whereas today, journalists are having a harder time than ever finding full-time work many have turned to newsletters. Side hustles to try to pay the bills. Meanwhile, corporations are already flooding the email newsletter market in picking off talented newsletter raiders for their own perhaps signaling the impending end of this iteration of the newsletter boom just as the past is apparently unchangeable in any consequential ways so too does it repeat itself with broad strokes in perpetuity? Tend to have become increasingly common over the last few decades and accordingly, the stigma surrounding them has worn off quite a bit as well. It's still there of course, especially in older generations in certain cultures. But what if you could defend your tattoo by saying it's for medical purposes. Tattoos that can indicate biochemical changes in your body as warning signs for larger conditions have been in development by various teams of scientists over the last several years. Carson bruns a chemist artist and assistant professor at the University of Colorado. Boulder has been working on tattoos that detect UV lights and also served as the first human test subject for them. But before I dive more into bronzes specific work, here's a quick summary of recent developments quoting the conversation in two thousand seventeen researchers tattooed pigskin, which had been removed from the pig with molecular bio sensors that use color to indicate sodium glucose or. Ph levels in the skins fluids in two thousand, nineteen team of researchers expanded on that study to include protein sensing and developed smartphone readouts for the tattoos. This year they also showed that electrolyte levels could be detected with fluorescent tattoo sensors in two thousand eighteen biologist developed a tattoo made of engineered skin cells that darken when they sent an imbalance of calcium caused by certain cancers they demonstrated the cancer detecting tattoo in living mice and quotes. While all of those projects detect biomedical changes within a person Brinson, his team are working on the detection of external changes mostly UV exposure as a warning sign for skin cancer quoting bruns. In the conversation, we developed an invisible tattoo ink that turns blue only in UV light alerting you when your skin needs protection. The tattooing contains a UV activated die inside of Plastic Nanno capsule less than Micron in diameter or thousandth of a millimeter about the same size as an ordinary to pigments. The Nano capsule is needed to make the color changing tattoo particles large enough if tattoo pigments are too small, the immune system rapidly clears them from the skin and the tattoo disappears. They're implanted using tattoo machines in the same way as regular tattoos but they last for only several months before they start to degrees from UV exposure and other natural processes and fade requiring a booster tattoo end quote. The team is also developing UV protective tattoos that would essentially act as long lasting sunscreen by absorbing the UV light that penetrates the skin. While that may sound like a lot of pain to endure for how much surface area that would have to cover to be effective bruhns also notes that scientists have been working on needle free tattooing methods using microscopic ink droplets fired into the skin. And Tattoo Tech is going in even more directions. There's epidermal electronics or wearable electronic tattoos that would do things like quote sense electro physiological signals like heart rate and brain activity or monitor hydration and glucose levels from sweat and quotes. But there's also non-medical uses like quote controlling mobile devices, for example, Shuffling Music playlist at the touch of a tattoo or for luminescent body art that lights up the skin and quotes. Bruhns, notes that color changing tattoos that can be programmed with electromagnetic signals will change the game on tattoos. You could have a tattoo that's visible when you're out with friends but turn it off for work. All of this is not completely without risk however, even ordinary tattoo pigments currently in use are unregulated by the FDA hopefully as new tech is being developed in labs, there will be some level of caution in oversight being exercised, but the long term effects of micro and Nano implants is yet to be studied. If, you ever get a craving for a cup of tea but just felt it wasn't hardcore enough for your personal brand pitch. Black North is here to help Dominic Alvarez's delightfully sinister loose leaf tea company was founded on Satanic Values and is here to provide a cup of brown joy to people who might not typically be interested in t due to its fairly stuffy fancy. Maybe Cat lady type of stereotyping pitch black north sustainably sourced loose-leaf blends include Satan's slumber throat of Lucifer cradle of filth in official collaboration with the band Banshee brew and the Nila Earl Grey. For the fall season, they've also released in anti Christ pumpkin spice. And as for their satanic values, their sight says quote satanic values have been a part of our core beliefs in our personal lives. In through this company, we are not here to inform but challenge you to look from a different perspective and additionally they include a quote from Anton Levay, the founder of the Church of Satan which reads quote. Satan. Represents. Indulgence Satan represents undefined wisdom end quotes. And a quick reminder that the Church of Satan does not actually worship Satan. It's more of a philosophical community using purposefully provocative imagery to challenge beliefs on well beliefs. But getting back to pitch black north, the tea company they're instagram is filled with photos of scantily clad models in corpse paint faces having tea parties in a field. They do have a really strong brand I'll give that to them. So if you were into goth or metal and want to t company that matches your static pitch black north. Is the company for you but there are also plenty of other options on the market especially if you're looking for less music inspired and more generally spooky for the Halloween season. Brutalities cells loose leaf tea blends based on horror movies and metal bands. They have options like Chai put a spell on you back in blackberry and a chalk work on. And if coffee is more your vibe, I would like to recommend the number one most frequently targeted Ed for me bones coffee company. Admittedly, I still haven't tried them but they are a small batch roaster with really great art design and their roasts include Jack do Lantern Franken bones and a rest in peace DECAF. So. If you're looking to get spooky with your caffeine this season, there are few recommendations for tea or coffee that are as dark as your soul. That's it. For today as always, the cocky ride home was produced by ride home media and Cocky Org. I am Jetson bird and I'm going to go hop in my delorean and accelerate to eight miles per hour because apparently if I end up in the past there is nothing I can do to make twenty twenty even worse. I. Hope You all had a great weekend talk to you again tomorrow.
Spare the Rodrigo: Philippine elections
"This economists podcast is sponsored by linked in jobs. Hello and welcome to the intelligence on economist radio. I'm your host. Jason Palmer every weekday. We provide a fresh perspective on the events shaping your world. Overuse of antibiotics has driven the evolution of microbes that are resistant to them. So new drugs are constantly needed. But pharmaceutical companies lack the incentive to develop them market prices are dirt cheap and doctors are trying to prescribe the less. And the treasures of antiquity that are dotted around. Greece are jealously protected by the state. That's why a new art exhibition on dealers smack in the middle of the tiny islands. Ancient sites is both surprising and intriguing. But I. Today, Philippine voters will head to the polls for mid-term legislative elections. More than eighteen thousand government positions are up for grabs including around three hundred seats in the house of representatives and twelve slots in the Senate in a political system where personality Trump's party some see the ballot as a popularity test for the country's firebrand leader Rodrigo Detaille if his loyalists do well, the president will be able to consolidate his power. Mr. deter take was elected in two thousand sixteen. I win so press crime group the. Nothing. Anti-establishment populist. He promised hardline policies. Three years into his term. He's delivered. He launched a bloody war on drug crime. Dead bodies are being recovered from the streets in Manila. And in one notorious speech even likened himself to Hitler. Loss of third three million. Is three million three million. That'd be happy to slot. Person. Do say is an abrasive character whose son some international opprobrium for all his campaign against drugs, which is turned into a RAV murderous free for all that's killed thousands of people John MacLean reports for the economist from nila, he's less well-known for determined efforts to to peace with was than separatists of south of the Philippines, while at the same time being tough on those who get together with Islamic state and also for his efforts to dial down the confrontation with China over territory in the South China Sea and today Filipinos will go to vote in midterm elections. Why are those elections important for Mr. dude? Jose miss deters has three years left of his single six-year term, and like go presidency needs support of congress to keep governing effectively. Now, he has been quite covering his first year. Years in office in getting most of the legislation he needed urge of the these tax reform program of infrastructure building, which will help keep the economy growing fast. So he has less need of congress in the second half is too, but it's still useful to have to govern affected. Well, I mean, what's sort of changes are in prospect for the second half of his term. Watching needs to do is congress positive the second half of tax reform measure, which will do the economy a world of good Congress's help is also needed in his project to also the constitutions were placed the unitary state with a federal system. Why did Mr. detach? They want to change the nature of governance, essentially, he wants to make sure that the peace plan for the Muslim areas of the Philippines will stand up to the scrutiny of the supreme court. Now, there is a chance the supreme court will declare that these unconstitutional simple answer to that problem. Of course, it's the change in the constitution. Back is the main reason for Mr. turkeys eagerness for federal system. And how popular is he with this program of tax reform and infrastructure and an ambitious peace plan. How's he doing in? The polls wish to do. He has had consistently high ratings in all kinds of England polls satisfaction with his government popularity everything and he's not so much. He's policies that making popular, but he's personality. And I mean, the thing that's we often hear most outside the Philippines is about this brutal crackdown on drug dealers. And the like is that a popular policy is that contributing to his popularity. Well, there are certainly misgivings on many Filipinos about how this campaign is conducted. But in general is perception the crime on seats who's fallen so yes, he's policy has public approval. But it's very qualified public approval. Is there truth to that is crime genuinely down or is it? The very public very visible nature of this crackdown. Kind of contributing to the sense that crime is down crime figures in of the crime figures and many other parts of the world. They say what the police want them to say if he's a section that the streets are safer on the other hand, the campaign against drugs is a very bloody. It said it's so it was not so much a case if these, nurses the criminals, but it's more of a war on drug dealers and predictors of the drug dealers among the police, so it's a free for all where no one knows exactly where they stand and in the event that Mr. Tetteh and his allies are triumphant in this election. We'll vet get worse. You think certainty that will be next affective criticism of the campaign against drugs, but it will carry on anyway. And in that election. I mean who are the credible threats then to Mr. detained and his allies opposition coalition. Who's made the mistake of painting? This election is a referendum on Mr. do. Tessie? Now, the opinion polls show them that the president is popular. That's only one of the senatorial candidates in the opposition is likely to win a seat. Bam Aquino who belongs to the Aquino clan. But is provided to presidents Philippines. Now, political dynasties are big factor in Philippine politics. And another interesting character to watch we'll be Mr. do Turkey's own daughter who is the man of his hometown. She's only session to attain a post. But whether we're seeing him start of a new let's go on the national stage remains to be seen. I think it's highly unlikely that tattoo tech table. We'll step onto the national stage anytime soon, so what do you think? Then we'll we'll have it in this election will Mr. Detaille and his loyalists keep their majorities. Yes. Mr. if you touch there will retain a degree of control of congress. How long that control will lust though is another matter OE politics in the? Philippines is transactional. The president. Is the phones will patronage congress gives the president's support in return for government spending in that constituencies that loyalty to the president's can change quickly. Suddenly when the president tends to become a lame duck is he does towards the end of his term. But for now, you think Mr. Detaille is is safe for the next year or two years. Yes. He's sake towards the end of his term. He will suddenly become laying as it would be. John. Thank you very much for joining us. Antibiotics are so widely used that it's easy to forget what a miracle drug. They seemed when they were new before penicillin even simple wounds could result in fatal infections during the second. World War, the production capacity for the drug was limited. It wasn't used much because a single shot could cost around six hundred dollars today's money, but better manufacturing methods cut that price down to just twenty cents to make the Pontes needed. It was decided to seek help in the United States here. Scientists devised better ways of countering penicillin, which could give much bigger yields. This film produced by the British government in the nineteen sixties hinted at the extrordinary need the world would develop for the drugs today, the penicillins early one group of antibiotics among many butter. I didn't know Bartos throughout the world. The such goes on for more. Big pharma companies are finding it very hard to make money on these drugs because the margins have historically been very slim. They obviously have more lucrative opportunity such as drugs for cancer, rare. Diseases Slovakia Czech about is the economists healthcare. Correspondent the development of antibiotics is an expensive business molecules are harder to discover the development Coster quite high. It takes about ten years or even more to bring a drug from the lab to the patient it costs somewhere around a billion dollars. So obviously, if you target your research and development investment, the particular product, you want to pick one that can bring you money, and I presume that the the the rise of antibiotic resistance and this roof growing awareness of that also kind of puts pressure on people are actively trying to use fewer of these things. Absolutely. That's that's the main problem with the business model for anti-biotics, so antibody cheers. Which is the concept of doctors reserving, the newest antibiotics as a last resort in order to preserve them to make sure that resistance doesn't develop to them means that sales volumes are very small. So if you have a new antibody on the market, not only you can't get a lot of money for it. You can't tell much of it either. When why is it so expensive too to find to make new ones? Some researchers say that the low hanging fruit has been picked traditionally the way anti-biotics have been discovered his being too literally just dig in the samples of soil brought from anywhere in the world and try to find a compound that works on certain, Victoria. So that model is getting more difficult because resistance is so widespread now with overuse of antibiotics all over the world on the other hand developing new drugs is expensive as ever bringing them from the lab to the patient requires expensive clinical trial. Els and in the case of antibiotics for new superbugs. It's particularly difficult because the number of patients when he'd dumb is quite small resistance develops over time. So the number of these patients will grow. But at the beginning there are so few of them that for clinical trials, it's a lot of work to find his patients and run the trial, which makes it very expensive and difficult to do it in reasonable time. And so the these drugs than look kind of like a bad bet for pharmaceutical companies to to pursue. Yes. That's right. And that's why big pharma companies have largely left this line of business on the three of them still have antibiotics in clinical research. So the pipeline of new antibiotics has really dried up so kind of a cross the board the the incentives to to develop these things have have been reduces or any way to address that or to to bring down development costs or raise the incentives and some other way bringing down development costs is really. Not not an option because you do need to run the clinical trials the development costs are what they are. It's difficult to to bring them down on the other hand paying for the drugs. Could be changed at the moment. Antibiotics in America are paid for as part of bundles for hospitalized patients, which means the companies can charge a lot of money for them. So changing how antibiotics are reimbursed could make a difference. There are some interesting models that are being considered the British government. For example, is trying out a model whereby the pay for antibiotics in bulk. So it's sort of a subscription fee to have access to certain antibiotic, regardless of how much the us if that subscription fees large enough that could make business sense for some new anti-biotics, and is anybody sort of stepping into the breach. Yes, they're a small by technology companies which in the last five to ten years. Have tried to few in the scab? Some of them have come up with anti-biotics for some of the really scary superbugs kill half of the patients. They infect however is they're bringing their products to market. They're running into the same problem of not being able to make money at the beginning. When when there are so few patients around for that drug and another interesting idea that has been discussed quite a bit is giving an award to someone who develops an antibiotic for a particularly scary superbug and the amount that has been discussed is about a billion dollars, which is the development costs for a new drug that seems like a lot of money, but by some estimates, antibiotic resistance could cost the world a lot more by twenty fifty the World Bank estimates that the cost of anti-microbial resistance could rival that of the two thousand seven finance crisis begin the mechanism. That's brought us to this point with growing resistance than and the need to find drugs. I mean, isn't this a problem that will? Of continue in indeed magnify if it's so hard to find new drugs. Oh, absolutely. We've been able to keep infections on their control. Exactly because there have been new antibiotics pain developed to replace those which microbes have become resistant. And now the process is slowing down. We are in real danger of being unable to fight common infections. If there are no new antibiotics to replace those that are rapidly becoming useless. Is there a chance that will will reach a stage where there are simply no more molecules to be to be found to do this job. I don't know anyone knows the answer to that question molecules are still being found which means they're out there. It may be more difficult to discover them. But the real problem is really once the molecules discovered how it will be brought to drag the goes on the market, and is commercially sustainable, and so it's all about getting the incentives right at this stage. Yes. That's right. Your thank you very much for your time. Thank you. And if you'd like to hear more on antimicrobial resistance, you can listen to the economists podcast the world ahead when the drugs don't work, we speak to Maryn McKenna, the author of the new book plucked. She reveals just how much antibiotics are overused in the cultural industry, we are spraying as streptomycin an Oxy tetracycline. Hundreds of thousands of kilograms on citrus grows to save the orange industry of Florida and California, no matter how we have misused antibiotics in all of these settings the central problem is that we are not using them for the thing that they were invented for which is to cure infections. Every summer tourists flock to the Mediterranean and board ferries to the Greek islands. In between basking in the sun and eating moussaka many. Visit the ruins of ancient Greeks of Liz Asian imagining an era when people worshipped a pantheon of gods and thought terrible wars, but also nurtured early democracy science drama an architecture. Dellis is an island in the middle of the GM small Little Rock sounded by many other large ones. Amaryllis party is a tour guide who shows people around the tiny place with its huge ancient city. I believe that one of the most beautiful sites of losses that bypassing the sea to get the you're literally having a catharsis of our times and you travel back into time with the boat. And you get the Opal -tunities to walk through history with no traffic, no buses. No shops not much reminding us of our times, but it's just yourself history nature and the surrounding light. She's worked for years on the island showing people around the site where pilgrims once came to worship Artemis and Apollo and to trade, but like most ancient sites in Greece. The authorities have never allowed anything modern on the ruins until now. Now these cultures that made of iron, their obviously contemporary sculptures, and they make an extraordinary impression in this very antique and beautiful landscape. Bruce, Clark writes about faith for the economist and visited deals earlier this month, you've got a small and very numerous Greek island with the low hill of the top with a lovely competent flowers and grass because it's springtime and we've had lots of rain. And so the injection of these sculptures into the landscape is something very powerful. It really catches the eye. So, Bruce, what's what's going on who who made these cultures? And what are they doing on the island? These cultures were made by one of Britain's most popular public artists. So Antony Gormley now he's famous in England for placing sculptures in important public places, and the common theme of all his sculptures is that they explore the relationship of the human being with his environment. And they were brought to Greece at the initiative of a private autistic foundation by the name of Nalen, and they were working in close collaboration with the Greek ministry of culture. And did you get a chance to ask serenity about why he chose this site? Well after seeing next edition I had the chance to sit down with Ronnie Gormley in a hotel and talk to him about the show. It's difficult. Not to kind of go into magical thinking, oh, MRs them in saying the qualities of dealers are extraordinary. But it is something to do with the in a way. The smallness of the island is it's it's rockiness. And it's light it's lack of water. And yet this feeling of of somehow in spite of the smallness of the island somehow being extended into into space at large. I mean, he's spent the last several months fine tuning the installation of his sculptures in this landscape. It's been a very complex operation putting the sculptures in place. Some of them had to be dropped in by helicopter. Well, quite with with helicopters and everything I mean, it's not common for for Greece to allow that this kind of kind of intrusion into action sites. Right. Why why did they permit? This one is. What is to stop with the first point is certainly true that the Greek authorities are very sensitive to anything that seems to disturb the integrity of an ancient site. Now, I think what was special in. This case is that the was already a very harmful bond of collaboration between the private sector and the public sector as it were the private foundation now and the Greek ministry of culture, and they jointly made the application to the Greek ecological counsel to use the landscape of dealers and on certain conditions. It was accepted. And so what did you make of it? Did you did you like it? Well, seven the ones that were placed with the sea in the background. I found extraordinarily moving, and it is just a stunning landscape anyway and the site of these sculptures against the scudding waves is very very powerful and moving the ones that are extremely abstract will appeal to some people not to others to me. It was almost. Votive that they've put a rather solid. Heavy piece of iron in the middle of the ancient theatre, which is a place that would have hosted lovely flexible, nimble, movements and Odin times. So there was a great contrast between the heaviness and the solidity of this piece of on with the kind of performance that once would have been seen in this lovely environment. But it was let's say a provocation almost playful statement, which I found acceptable and didn't ruin the environment from and that's the main thing the environment is so powerful that it really can't be shattered by anything, Bruce.

Shining a Positive Light on Down Syndrome
"The. Raising a child with a disability is one of those things I wouldn't wish on anybody. But I wouldn't trade the experiences for anything or anyone in the world. That's Bob Hendershot. And he joins us today on focus on the family. I'm John Fuller, and your host is focused president and author. Jim Daly, John today is world down syndrome day, and we're coming back to this program with Bob to commemorate it he'll share with us about his son. Trevor adult light full young man who is having quite an impact on the world around him. I mean, all of us physically capable people would want to have the kind of impact that Trevor is having down syndrome touches so many lives. In fact, each year here in America proximity. One in every seven hundred babies is born with down syndrome. One in every seven hundred the hardest attested here is that between sixty seven and eighty five percent of babies diagnosed with down syndrome after prenatal testing. Are aborted isn't that amazing? And again, that's here in the United States that doesn't include places like Iceland, where it's nearly a hundred percent of babies diagnosed with down syndrome are aborted here. Focus on the family. We believe that all people are of infinite value, regardless of age development, appearance or ability. That's why we're honoring the value of life with our sealife clearly campaign. We've been talking about it, and we'll continue to do. So because this is important to us. And I trust that it's important to you as well. A great way to join us in this venture is to read sign and share our declaration for life. We wanna let our elected officials, and others know that we care about all human life, and that we're taking stand. And after you hear Trevor's story as told by his dad, Bob hinder shot. I know you're going to be inspired to be a champion and avoid. Voice for life. Bob is married to Melissa. And they have three sons Trevor Taylor and Tanner and Trevor story is captured in Bob's book angel for higher and here now is how that conversation began. The real nugget here is being dad Trevor, and we're gonna get to that especially on this day where we honor down syndrome children, and I wanna explore that. But I wanna really start with your story because you were dealing with a lot of different things as a man you had to strong fears. You talk about in the book. What were they too strong fears growing up in a family with a history of problem drinking going back generations, and the first fear was that I would develop a drinking problem and become an alcoholic which unfortunately is exactly what did happen. Start drinking in highschool got worse in college. And by the time, I had graduated had a few minor car wrecks. But the worst thing about it for me. We're the blackouts in other words. Yeah. It was like a temporary loss of memory short term memory loss. And the worst thing about that was that I never knew the next day when a friend would call a neighbor might knock on my door or. Even sometimes happened stranger on the street with stopped me and say something like you probably don't remember me. But I know you and then proceeded elaborate on some embarrassing thing done the night before that had no recollection of whatsoever. It was a true nightmare. And I went on for many years like that my only solution for many years was just to start drinking first thing in the morning, which is started the whole alcoholic cycle all over again. Well, and that was a lot of how your early life was framed. How long have you been sober now twenty years now? Yeah. And you've been married how long. Thirty one year, Melissa your wife who you almost didn't pass that test. I want to tell you but Melissa who watching in the gallery there those ten years had to be pretty tough. We're we're struggling in your marriage. And the reason I bring this up again people are living in that spot. People who are listening right now have a spouse who's struggling with alcoholism. And I want you to express that hope and kind of describe how God brought you through that. Yes. Well, I quit drinking the first time in nineteen Eighty-three. And after that point I met Melissa nineteen. We got married in nineteen eighty five. And then I stayed sober for over twelve years during that time, we were married we had our three sons, unfortunately, I was overseas on business March ninety six and I thought I was cured and I picked up a drink of alcohol and went off when the same tenjin once again. And so I went out for a year and a half so to speak in the sense that. I was drinking alcoholic Lee. What have you and Melissa finally had enough in August of nineteen ninety seven and she checked me into chemical dependency unit. Chemical rehab, and so I've been sober ever. Since the twenty fourth nineteen ninety seven so that alcoholism and that family disorder. It was something that you feared that was your first. What was your second fear? My second fear growing up was what kind of a father. I would be and more importantly how my children turn out. And then when Melissa was pregnant with our first child, I had all these hopes and dreams that he or she would be everything. I wasn't scholar athlete is issue. At the very least comfortable enough in their own skin. So they wouldn't have to resort alcohol to feel good about themselves. And then when it came time for baby to be born he rushed down to the hospital. And we saw my first child being born. And the doctor said, you have a son was so happy happy memorial life. But then five minutes later, the doctor asked me, do you know, what down syndrome is that was by far the saddest moment of my life. Go utter joy to utter devastation in about five seconds. Was the hardest thing I've ever had experience. It was worse than after any night of drinking. I was just so angry with God, I had some faith. But I thought why me why have all people you knew I'd have enough trouble being the father of a regular boy, let alone special needs. I don't deserve something like this. And you know, it's been twenty six years since that day the trials and triumphs setback successes. Tiers of great sadness, become tears of joy while I did my call them. I stand by my ridge statement, I really do not deserve like, but for the complete opposite reason when I'm glad you've kind of put the in cap too. That because a lot of people will say hack it you do that. I mean, how could you be so hard hearted? If I could be that bold. In fact, you said you struggled even wanting to bring Trevor home in, you know, there are a number of couples who will get that diagnosis in many of them will choose not to have the child that number. I think is anywhere from seventy to ninety percent of down syndrome babies in the womb won't make it into life. And so a lot of couples choose that option. But you didn't you Melissa didn't choose that option when you look back on that right now, and you've alluded to it. Trevor changing your life in a positive way. What have been some of those ways? Well, the practical lessons God taught me through my recovery helped me to be a better father to Trevor and the spiritual lessons I learned as Trevor's dad have helped me to stay. Sober for the last twenty years. Really, right. Yes. That's pretty powerful. When I was in rehab. I met my sponsor, and he told me you had to make amends to everybody in your life. Proverbs fourteen nine says, fools mock and make it amends for sins but Goodwill's found among the upright. And so he said you have to go make a formal apology as not just saying I'm sorry for what I did. You have to go to everyone in your life and say this is what I did. I'm sorry for it. What can I do to make it right? And I was very fortunate. The most of the people in my life, my family that people I knew were content with that. But Trevor for some reason he was still upset about the fact that I wasn't always there physically emotionally mentally to be the father. I had been the first few years of his life. So my sponsor told me he got to make a living amends, which is actions speak louder than words. And so what I did every morning a little school bus came down our street, and it was my job to put him on the bus. Jeb would get on the bus. I walk out on the sidewalk he get on the bus, and he looked. Out the window and start clapping for me. Like this. And I started doing a little Cossack dance right on the sidewalk there Amash. I've got a couple of questions still related to what you struggled through. Where was God in this picture for you? How is he mentoring you as your heavenly father? Where was your commitment to him people that have certain area handled? Like, I don't drink configure rather superior to someone who does and we can look down our noses to somebody who can't handle it. Well, and I want to ask you where was got in the picture. Where's that commitment on your part to so keilor it I'm going to get through today? And I'm not going to touch drink. How did that play out for you? Oh, it's mostly just prayer. And when I first started drinking, I was not a Christian. In fact, I started drinking in high school. I was a nineteen Seventy-three. So there's a long period like another ten years before. I finally cried out the God. I didn't know who he was. But it is quite off for help. Please. If you're out there, please get me sober. I can't do this anymore. And he did answer that prayer. And then it wasn't until nineteen eighty nine Melissa. And I were already married that we made the commitment received Jesus Christ our Lord and savior. So after that we were going to church and walking the good Christian walk. But unfortunately, I kind of fell away from the Lord in March and ninety six and I mentioned earlier I was overseas business. I thought I'm a Christian, man. Mike can have a drink. It's all good. But I could not. So that stayed with me. Yeah. That had to be hard. Then the second question I had is Melissa in how she operated in this time of your marriage. How how did she talk with you deal with you encourage you discourage what was happening between the two of you. Well, she's been the rocket our marriage off through this through our whole lives together for sure without her around. I definitely wouldn't be here today. That's for sure. And. So she's been the producer. She's been the manager. She's been the the nurse. She's been unit. She's the one that brought us through this. And I'm so grateful for her. And so without her involvement. I never would have Taylor and tanners. Well, yeah, they they're great brothers. Trevor and they've been a big help to was going to ask you about that. Because how does the sibling thing work when you have a special needs child? Have. They rallied him. Do they poke fun at him like most siblings will do or what dynamic with like free? Sure that we weren't going allow that to happen. And there's. High school and Trevor stirred so to speak coming out of shell started getting a lot of attention at school. They really realize that it was a good thing to have a brother like Trevor specialties brother, you know, when Trevor was born I met with some of the families that had special needs children that were pretty far along chronologically. And if there's any guarantee to have a well adjusted teenager, or boy or girl, the fact that you have special need sibling and sibling his love by the parents in the family that was a pretty good guarantee that they were going to be focused on the eternal things faith, family and friends and not so much. You know, looking cool, you know, the new cell phone or anything like that. So well, and that's the question when you look at family, and the heaviness that you Melissa had it sounded like Melissa was far more quick to embrace Trevor. Yes. And did that speak to your heart? Did it make you feel? Guilty. What was the dynamic between mom and dad about Trevor the boy, you didn't wanna bring home from the hospital and mom saying come on. This is your son have those discussions. We did. But Trevor was born on early Friday morning may fourth nineteen ninety and it was again, the most devastating moment of my life and fortunate we were at a church that had a very solid prayer team and their prayers over the weekend. Really help because I went home Friday night and Saturday night just crying my eyes out saying we can't bring him home. We just cannot do it. But when I woke up Sunday morning almost like Easter Sunday. I felt okay. There's a point of this. God thank you for talking to me. And if it wasn't for the prayers of our church body that wouldn't have happened. But then I couldn't wait to get down to each ever at the hospital. And when you look at it. I mean think of which you do every day you and Melissa the positive impact that Trevor's been in your family. The very fact that your boys have that sensitivity. And it sounds like the Lord is used Trevor to build each one of your faiths up your he's been that kind of positive impact for you simply speak to that. When a couple is thinking, okay, we have a down syndrome child in my womb. What are we going to do now? Hopefully, most Christians understand this is life. This is life created in God's image. And we do everything we can. But there are women who may not make that choice to give that baby life some in the church. And I I know some are listening who maybe have made that decision, and they feel guilty about it. But speak to the positive benefit of how Trevor has been such a light in your family in the fear. That people have when it comes to raising a child who has difficulty raising a child with a disability is one of those things I wouldn't wish on anybody. But I wouldn't trade the experience for anything or any anyone in the world. You know when Trevor was frequently bullied while he was growing up, especially in high school. What did that bowling look like well when he was in high school, we found that he was being bullied by some of the students, and so we call the vice principal and said, hey, you got to put a stop to this. And so she called back the next day and said, I interviewed the alleged perpetrators, and they denied it. And so, you know, we're not gonna do anything. We don't wanna miscarriage of Justice. Now, we have been told get a lawyer, you know, soup people what have you? But no, we didn't want to do that. So we just prayed in the next day. I asked to have a meeting with her. And so we went in and brought Trevor with me and Melissa wisely. The night before had him write down what was said and done to him. And so we came in. And there was the principal three vice principals for teachers and a police officer and kind of a scary situation. And so had Trevor read this read what you wrote down Trevor. And he said I'm scared. My said, I'm with you don't worry about it. So and I told the p. People in that meeting. This is not a deposition is not going to be any cross examination of Trevor. He's just going to read what happened, and then we'll let you decide where the miscarriage of Justice my life. And so he read haltingly, call me tarted. Call me to bid coming worthless push me down, and you could have heard a pin drop in the room. And so I got up and said, okay. That's it. You guys decide what you wanted to side. So we walked out, and it was a pretty big deal at school and large crowd of students out front and all the cheerleaders made a banner form, we love you Trevor you're the bomb, and and so that was good. And then later on. It's all Trevor that was pretty cool the cheerleaders made you aband- or and he said, yeah, I married them. I go. He's canal, which which one all the no, no all them. And we're pretty if the exact right girl, it'd be brought into your life. And and so we're grateful. That's how it turned out when he was a senior every student in the school appearance. Got an Email saying if you want your son or daughter to be on the homecoming court to to fill out of five part document and returned by such and such a time, and I had hopes and dreams Trevor and I knew he had made some friends, but this wasn't for him. So I deleted the document. And and then Melissa got a call the next day from one of his special Ed teachers saying did you fill out the occasion, Melissa said. Well, not really there's nothing. This is not for Trevor. And he said, well, can I feel it out? And she said sure go ahead. So I got to pick up Trevor on Tuesday after school when he comes walking out. He's got a rose in his hand. And he says I am homecoming core daddy, and I said, not you're thinking misinterpreted. What happened? He goes. No. I am homecoming court. He pulls out a piece of paper it to and says, congratulations. Trevor Hendershot is on the homecoming court north at high school, I thought wow. Okay. How can this be tried to explain to Trevor don't get to upset if you don't pick because he gets upset when things goes way? I don't know where he gets that. If things goes way, he's not happy. But so on Friday at noon at the pep rally, thousands of kids there and the teachers and everybody, and then they got to the end of the pep rally, all the cheered and the band plane, and what have you, and then they got to the announce the hookah me king the homecoming king for two thousand nine north high highschools Trevor, and they didn't even get to the last name and the whole place tearful standing ovation as a wonderful thing. And then. That night. We were for the homecoming dance. I was we got a tattoo tech Cedo. Trevor I was but in his cdo, and he says, I just the bride. Son. You're not getting buried your homecoming king. There's no kissing ceremony. Believe just keep your. Please. Then after the game. One of the vice principals came up to me and said, you know, whatever came to the school has a freshman. We knew he was being bullied for not only because this ability. But also here's a habit of loudly singing Christian songs before during an after school in while we were able to with your input. We were able to stop the bullying our efforts to keep Trevor from singing during the school day to no avail, but you know, this whole school. The last four years has realized Chevy's faith is part of who he is. In addition to the singing of Christian songs, it also comes with a high five fist-bump and a hug for the truly fortunate to have been able to cross his path in the day at school. So why we thought it would be a token? Vice token gesture to put him on the homecoming court little did we know that the vote wasn't even going to be close. He got more votes than the other four candidates. Bind. And we heard we might have a ride on our hands. If he wasn't picked homecoming king. So it was a great honor have them be our homecoming king that says so much about that school as well started rough. But it sounded like it ended in a good place. Definitely. But I'm in tears here because, you know, the love of father in I can through your stories, you're telling us how much you've advocated for your son, and I just can't help. But think about how our heavenly father does that for us. And it's such a beautiful picture that you went to that school. You fought for him. You in Melissa did just about everything you needed to do to set up the victory at the end. And I just love that. I love the fact that a dad anima are willing to risk reputation of your own. So you can put your neck out there for your boy. And I am touched by that. That is powerful. And I want to say, thank you. Thank you. That is so good and. Here's the good news. You can meet Trevor he works there in Anaheim at the Los Angeles angels field. I know my wife's family goes to games quite frequently. So I'm gonna have him stop by and say hi to Trevor and for the ducks as well. Just across the freeway there. They can go over the ducks. And he works in that store as well. Yes. When Trevor graduated from high school and took transition training program at a local junior college. They he was told that the best job you could ever hope for would be folding towels basement of a hotel laundromat, and we thought well, he's pretty friendly. Maybe he can get a job greeting. But we heard at the end of the two thousand eleven season that there was an opening for the position of greeter at the angels team store and with I'll maybe Trevor can do that. So we drove up there in the last game of the season. Trevor and I reduced ourselves to the store manager a real nice guy. But he was kind of like, I don't know, you know, give me a call call them in a week. Same Email finally got hold on again. And then he said. Well, it's outta my hands. It's up in corporate HR. Love that line. Right. So we call this also nice guy, and he said, well, we don't know semi an Email and finally one on for some time. And finally said, you know, if you don't think cover can do this job. That's fine. We won't make a fuss. We promise a lot of times big corporations or frayed that if they don't do what you wanted to do you're going to do or claim discrimination. I promise we won't do that. So I said, okay, fine. Why don't you come in for an interview next Wednesday? And so we drove up to the stadium ushered into the manager's office. And Trevor went up and shook his hand I Trevor, and we gave him the resume in engineer said nice to meet you Trevor he looked at the resume, and he asked him do you? So your sports fan. Trevor said, yes, yes. Do you know anything about the angels? And Trevor new all the current angels and the angels on the championship team. And so the guy said, that's pretty impressive. And so he said, but I see you have had training at Walgreens and traitor. What did you do there? And he said I stock I face. I do go backs which are retail terms. And then. I never forget. The manager said, you know, ever, Mr. Hendershot this interviews gone for about an hour, which frankly is about forty five fifty minutes longer than I thought I would I teach anybody out of stock facing to go back. That's nothing. And so my head. I'm thinking you for your time. We did our best will be on our way is. But there's a few things I cannot teach. It's an outgoing personality. Cheerful disposition in a beautiful smile, and you ever have all that and more our first game against royals on April. Six can you be there? So I'd be there. I'm pleased to hire you to be the greater for the angels and his hires him on the spot. Wow. And they did a background check. And he said, I'm good started. Our first game six two thousand twelve and some Royal fans we're trying to come in the store. Trevor said angel fans only you cannot come in. That go over the management. Hopefully got a bonus. It's so. No, they told him. You gotta let everybody come in. So he said come in by hat, though. Yeah. So couple of weeks later, the president of the angels Jonker piano came in and gave him a five hundred dollar bonus. A few weeks later, chairman of the dentist. Cool. Was speaking at the Newport Beach humor of commerce, and yes, it come down to share story. So we did that is so good. You know, Bob in so many ways we've described that wonderful benefit, but in the context of high school and a vocation that he's now picked up, which I think is awesome and all the positive nature of that. But there is one story. I wanna make sure we capture in that is from a young pregnant woman at the time young mom who made a remarkable decision after meeting Trevor tell us about. Yes. Well, Trevor has been working for the angels for maybe six season coming up in Duxford v. Season. And then last I think it was two seasons ago. The woman came through the store we heard about and and she was pregnant with the downside of child unsure of what to do. But meeting Trevor she decide to bring your child alive. What a powerful story from Bob Hendershot today on focus on the family. And Jim I loved hearing about the impact Trevor as had and is having on everyone around him. It's truly remarkable how God is using this young, man. In fact, we recently heard from Bob who told us Trevor is now greeting people in the fans stores for the NFL's LA Rams and the USC Trojan, and he just about has all the major sports teams and covered there in LA. This kind of story really hits home with us here at focus on the family, the positive impact Trevor's life has had on others is undeniable, and it's a message of hope to all parents, especially those of children with special needs. And this is why we focus on the family stand for life. Why we give voice to the pre-born the orphaned, the elderly and the mentally disabled the physically challenged to we are all created in God's image. And they're. Four have great worth and significance. We mentioned the declaration for life at the beginning of the program. I hope you'll read it sign it and share it with all of your friends. We want as many signatures as possible. So we can take this document to Washington DC and let our voices be heard when it comes to protecting life. We're also in the midst of planning a major event in Times Square on may fourth. We're calling it a live from New York. And we want you to be part of it if you can make it will have music a handful of speakers. And of course, the key moment. The Keno will be the live four de alter sounds on the big jumbotrons right there in Times Square, and we're excited to show the world God's handiwork right in the womb. And these are incredible images for third trimester. Alter sounds usually kids are sucking their thumbs waving their arms. I mean, it will be lively. And I think it will benefit the culture to see these babies in. In the womb. Well, signed a declaration for life and make plans now to join us in Times Square on may fourth. You can learn more about a life from New York. Just look for the link in the episode notes. Join us tomorrow as Terri Lynn Underwood reflects on the importance of praying for our daughters. I realized how much I had allowed my dinner to be shaped by what I had done. Instead of God says I am, and I looked around all the students that we have ministered to over the years, and their mom, and my friends, and I thought this is real on behalf of gym daily in the entire team. Thanks for listening to focus on the family. I'm John Fuller, inviting you back as we once again help you and your family thrive in Christ.

Originally the limited edition vinyl lp was going to be released in the uk at selected as the stores from november twenty seventh twenty with the digital version being released a week later on the big finish website on december fourth twenty twenty. I believe i've prepaid for that. So of i. However due to the ongoing uk restrictions being imposed in the uk coronavirus pandemic. The release date has been rescheduled february. Twenty twenty one. Why would covid stop the release of an audio. They don't all have to be in the same room to do it. no but they were Releasing it in stores. I o am stores closed in the uk. Well they have recommended not to go out unless it's urgent well. That is Gentleman that's not urgent. According to the government the government schmuck government. What would they know. According to the big finish website. This decision was made by asda demon records bbc studios and big finish to adhere to the government's recommendation against the sale of non essential items. Right those are all now on my shit list. Why because. I want it released when i wanted released. I think the idea was that. We're going to release it in stores early. So that people would buy that the lp and then release it online so they're not gonna release online until after they released the. Yeah all on my shitless at safety. It's safety reasons safety shifty. I know i'm a safety person. Safety professional but outcome on where yet to see if any of the other time lord victorious releases are also affected. Or do you think they will be because it would be sequential. Would not like you can any more of the stories from big finish because it'll be in the sequence otherwise what's the point. Well we've seen with the releases for this month that they're out of order. Well that's true. Since november the fifth the uk has been put it back into lockdown and all non essential businesses advised. Close funerals are only allowed to have thirty people in attendance and all weddings not permitted unless one other is getting married seriously. Ill had not expected to recover. I deathbed wedding. Allow these weddings are limited to six people. I look this would be a great time if you're taught us because you don't wanna you don't wanna put it on a big spread fee funeral or you don't want to put on a big spread for the wedding but also if you don't have a lot of friends then nobody would know because you'll just say look. We only had six people because we married during covid. Not because we're a bunch of assholes and nobody wants to come. I like that. I should have got married in this time. it would have been much cheaper. He could get reburied well. What's the point is just always going to be dive looking at me. I'm so sorry. I've been there before in. Today's episode will start looking at the october twenty twenty releases. What time lord victorious that includes defender of the dialects pot to published by titan comics monstrous beauty part to published in the doctor who magazine for five five seven the night the fool and the dead and over published by bbc books. He kills me. He kills me not an audio player released by big finish short trips master thief and lesser evils released by big finish and canaries short story published on the doctor who website. There's probably our biggest month fulltime. Lloyd victoria's releases. It is and my problem is they're all starting to meld into one you're going to say. Let's talk about canaries. And i'm going to think which one was that. I feel giving me a synopsis. You will tell me this is another well. then it's going to be short. There was a canary in the car. That wasn't a canary security. Oh dammit dammit. Or let's defender of the dialects number two written by jody house with artwork by roberta in granada published october. Twenty twenty by titan comics the tenth doctor and the dalek prime strategist are exploring the volt of obscenities when they are attacked by a single haunt. A race of sentient pain intent on destroying a life in the universe. You know the volta obscenities could just be bedroom could yeah. They could be many rooms. That i shall now dub the volt of obscenities. Welcome to the volts of obscenity. In fact my neighbor. I might call that the house abs of obscenities full the language they use at the children over there. Look now deduct alexei the word fucking shut up and sit down talking. Shot up and set down. Yes so the language that everybody uses to everybody. Else's quite an obscenity. The volt is opened and the duct connects with the dialogue. Juicing that his rusted casing is not a badge of pride as he previously asserted but a punishment for filed plan. I would think the amount of times the daleks have filed. Due to the doctor. There would be a lot of people running a lot of dialects running as the strategist. I yeah. I know but honestly there'd be a lot of lot of alex run and rusty old tin cans. They wouldn't be shiny gleam is they are now bogged. No i think the implication is that normally he would be dead by because he is the strategist. He gets punished and probably because nobody else wants the job. Do you want to be the dalek. Prime strategist faulkner. Will we coming up against the doctor on facchinetti. I will just stay here. Thanks i just want to be drawn. Twenty two million three hundred and fifty two thank you. More than my job's worth it's like if you get promoted on the death star. That's just really a death sentence being delayed. Isn't you've been promoted. Duff vader's personal assistant hard now. You know what that's fine are surat then kill. You can kill me dammit. The neutralize hunt is trapped within a still a and the weapon systems are integrated upgraded for the oncoming honda attack. But when the attack files the doctor steps in and rewires the daleks system to release the honda from their pain with the honda defeated the dialect. Prime strategist reveals its true nature and tries to exterminate the doctor. Yeah cipro thankfully. The doctor may be hopeful. But he's not stupid and detonates. The dalek weapon systems to make his escape. Lost an able to contact the tatis. The tenth doctor's helped out by the thirteenth doctor who he vaguely recognizes. Why does he vaguely recognize her. I don't know if you've read any of the thirteenth dr comics. But now essentially they did a story where the thirteenth doctor goes back to the sixties and helps out the tenth doctor with the weeping. Angels oh well. I'll have to do that. Because i remember. I remember this one because when you touch the pitcher on the comics wanted to come up. I love these comics. I read it or did you just touch the show. The pitch and remember ended up. No idea remember this and enjoy the story. I would have to say. I love the comics. I think they can ditch the short stories and they can ditch anything from the doctor who magazine because that just Just stick with the comics audio people. Just listen to me. I know these things and so basically the tenth doctor thirteen. Dr were supposed to have another adventure together and then this comic was going to lead on from that because of the pandemic they delayed that second comic and that second comic is now be starting to be released in november onwards. Why come it could be delayed. You don all have to be in the same room. What what are you people doing doing it wrong. If you all have to be in the same room to draw is that someone can stand. Ib sheldon go. I wouldn't do it like that will. Maybe it's to to get it published and printed and sent out an auditor. I seems very odd to me. Any who any who. Who am i to Mighty tell people how to do their jobs. Well actually. I'm fairly important. And that's what i do. Good so once Once that story finishes. I believe that will tie into the story. We've already just read that. I have downloaded a couple of. We'll come expat. I will have a look at the thirteenth doctor. Well to read them just to touch this. Just attach them and then the and the work is so great and then the picture the the next one comes up. And i don't have to look for it and i am. Let my saying door to has moved out. So i can't see anything at the best of times you how you offered to of nato for me because it takes me half an hour. I was trying to read the instructions on something that i wanted to hate up dinner and i couldn't read them now with too small and i said today david can i ring atom and ask him to come over and he said he could just take a photo if you wanted to a damn technology and you used to keep your seeing daughter on a leash like looking. Yeah absolutely she went everywhere with me. Oh shit y'all wine as the prime strategists answers to the emperor we find out that there is one more face of the doctor that can help them the eighth doctor i did. I just am so in love with the eighth pretty cool. He's going to be a big star in these series Thank goodness for that. Because the telly movie gave him nothing in the audience and the the new adventures the virgin new adventures would fantastic and viscount see him back on my television in a decent sized episode. I will probably do nothing. But i will be cross across a lot of people. Look the i've got such a long shitless people go into my hellhole and and then they come out after ten minutes. Because i get over it but still so we theorize that the honda was that mud like creature. And that's that's what it was a being made out of pain otherwise known as life. Yeah us that's what i couldn't get either. Isn't that exactly what we do. Every day i get up. And i'm a honed and i thought the name was a bit rubbish. It's such a stupid name with hond gaunt. do you go up against the. Food's why the hawn. I'm a subaru. I just think they could have come up with a better name. Haunt does sound like a one time. Maybe they're in pine because of they want austin. I am being cold. i apologize to. Anyone called this. Brian which always sounds like a weinstein. Sorry all the. Brian said that you probably lovely. But your parents hated you and like old doctor who villains. Oh god i thought that was a myth. That's bedtime story told people who were bad kids and then it's only in one episode and then disappears forever. Yeah and i do worry. What on gal afraid they would doing with their children because they would tear rossing them every awful villain that comes from myth. Their parents read them those stories. Or whoever raised the time lords who knows told them those bedtime stories so they are not the nicest people and then if you go back to the sheboygan's yeah and you look at come tat. Tattoo tech to tech tonic. Tunic the tedtalk tectonic Giardi whittaker's original the doctor's original mother she then experiments continuously on child. I mean we never see the kid go out for a play. There always sitting in a lab being being regenerates. Alright because she she keeps telling her stories about the haunted and well. You think you've got it. Let me tell you. Let me retail you. The story about the hon. If you're lucky when you wake up you'll be in pain. 'cause the honda live visited. Is it to test to. Oh gosh is going to annoy me. I want to say tattooing. But that's a star. Wars thing yeah tech on its tech to on tech to abu allah tectonic better. Yeah that's what. I remember if we've got it wrong. Please don't riding and tell us who get over it anything else. You wanna talk about defender of the daleks. I quite enjoyed defender the daleks. But i just. I think i don't know how it fits in with the rest. I mean it's obviously going to fit in with the audio play. That's coming up with the ice doctor and the dollar sign think that it's all going to come together at some point. I would really the minding. I'd like to say is when you touch the pennells over all right anyway next. Is this very exciting for someone. All dismay next up is monstrous.

That's right because my belief in love for you know it's gonna be. I'm sorry but it's going to be something that's gonna make me want to vomit. Just a little.

You are the one to put obstacles in their way that are interesting or just get them there and just get there and go from the come up with another cliffhanger. Yeah the whole first. Page was as reiterating than me captured by russell on. I honestly think it was a classic episode of doctor her. Oh god about a bad one mixed up is the not the fool and the dead. A novel written by steve cole published october. The first by bbc books. After leaving adelaide brooke at the end of waters of mars the tenth doctor pays a visit to end dalia during the times when no one dies barring accidents whilst there the doctor his of the impending arrival of the fuck then i miss hard kotaru coat. Tura to rue kapoor. Yes now that we've got a audio books. We can find out how to actually fucking site. Yeah i know we've been saying it wrong. I don't think anyone thought that it was a to ru now.

Shroud technology designed to repel To reuss gift. Did anyone think that wasn't a scam Yes that was right up there with the snake oil salesman of the wild west host. The snake oil salesman started probably in the wildest. Come get your tinctures annointment. Hey gro mike kitto. It's literally and kind of ties into one of the books which is basically as a space western. Yeah and it's also. I mean you still see now with though. Oh put this cream on your oleo of wrinkles. Go or you'll get thin if you drink. I don't know that guanateed and it doesn't work and it ties back on or like alex jones info wars whereas like everything's trying to poison you now by my pills. I i know who. I'm always amazed by those people. You're not getting enough minerals. Hey go out and take try my untested. I'll tell you what happened. I just got elected that will get some minerals. The doctor helps the subject. S estany escape the ssn. Brian the mood who has met the doctor before but with a different faith yes that was interesting it was it was really good to then know a bit. More about brian. I read this year. The last on the list was so. I i read this book. Then listen to. He kills me. Kills me not and then finished off this book. And i was like oh i. I was surprised you could finish the book. Because i had it second and took out all the really important. Okay hejin them. Oh god everything. It was really easy to read because it was like title page in credits. Yeah and yet that bit in the middle. I thought it was unimportant for you really. It turns out. Brian is working on orders. From hi ambassador. Xue verve huyndai. They the huyndai verve huyndai chaskalson of scott. Scott skelly tie. Yeah why is nobody ever jim from burbank. I'm glad that. Brian the you'd is brian. Jim from black. Don waited like the brian. because it's an assassinated now. I've just always found the name bryant a bit more. Brian testing the life shroud to make sure it works there at easy alliance will take them to more deal. Modell the home of the catoon rue and source of the crystals that give them their power as a lot of letter names. There's a lot of names that did interfere with my enjoyment. And i just started to sort of skim- anything with a k. That was the couture couturiers qatar rook to look the doctor. Brian fuller s teeny from more della. Come on holly throw up. Jesus crush what are you just rain now. This a rating out of a galactic galaxy did here he had to condense it down the drain. Brian follow st from modell to the police. Roy ship of professor. Hana fellow amax inventor of the live trout. At least fellow max but it turns out that the life shrouds dart work yet Fellow max has been using the galactic coordinates of planets. That are about to visit to sell them. Live shrouds don't work yet to fund research to make a working one so it's the ends justifies the main. Yes so while. I'm sitting there going ha. You can't get a spice. I can't sue then cannot and we're also saying oh need the crystals to make them work but then they don't work anyway. Shit by i s teeny has been born with an immunity to death and therefore is immune to the couture captured chess. Gal charles scowl but convinced him. Look sorry the house cal cal. Scou- sounds like a cal scales. Towns like skeletal. Yeah eight dollars. God but convinced him to fund the lie shroud research when the doctor finds out from brian that chelsea gall has hired a mercenary army to use the life shouts to take control of his iron planet. They decide to test the capabilities of the life. Shout prototypes on charles skull and take his army to more della to fight the couture allow you could have just said that in another language and it would have made as much sense to me. If you haven't read the book this sounds like yes. Please read the book and then come back and listen. Today's adam is not actually having a stroke. These the names from the book. The doctor has created a modified virus. The gives the couture a lifespan and undoubtedly in samples have given him the ability to destroy more della. So there's power cannot continue but sacrifices for the doctors isn't that love lay. Oh and she she can die because she blows up some crystals and dies. She couldn't die but then she can. I thought she was going to be like captain jack where she's like a fixed point in time but she has an immunity to death but obviously she can get over it. Well i suppose it was a massive explosion. She's not like captain jack in that. You can bernie. Many still comes back. I guess i just as the tenth doctor is about to destroy more della the eighth and nine. Th doctors appear to try and stop him. I was literally in bed reading this last night. Guy i now i did fan out a fan. Go out over that. But the tenth doctor has become time lord victorious defeat her of death of the companions and friends and civilizations he has lost at his travels he fires on more della. Meanwhile in between there are three interludes of the doctor telling the grimm brothers story of godfather death. The first doctor hearing the story from barbara from their first adventure the ninth doctor telling it to rose and the eighth doctor telling it to brian as he. Brian and felicity make their way to muslin in. He kills me. He kills me not a pretty cool. I thought it was too little bit set during another adventure and at the time. It didn't mean anything. But as soon as i started to listen to the audio with brian and flicking that i went. Oh yeah i. I get that now. I liked the book. I thought it was is really dry. Like stephen cole. I like his book. Stephen called james gross and justin richards. A love usually love any novel derived. The names annoyed me. But you know that's in the in the tv show because you hear it. It doesn't seem you know if i had to raid rexha calico fellow pretorious in a book. I would probably go what a dickhead came up with this one. But it's such a cool name. I thought it was. I thought it was really good. I mean game of thrones is way worse. Oh yeah absolutely. This is nothing compared to that. No i i really enjoyed it. I liked the books. I would've loved it to have been on an audio book. Because i do find. I have more time for notebook because you can listen to it. When you're walking around you can listen to it when you're driving when you're rating you have to sit down and really concentrate but it was still worth the read. I thought i still love reading and i. i think it's because i'm going slowly blind. As i get older that i find it ties me so i'd get through about three pages and fall asleep then i have to wake up and read three more and got to sleep and i love. I love the. I loved having an excuse to sit down. Actually read a book. It is good. Because i i used to read my. I used to do all of my reading on the train to and from work. And now i use that time to edit. So i haven't been able to read a book for like so it was great to finally to sit down love rating. I love it so yeah. I was really excited to and it was. It was a good story to. It's just it's a short book. It's not very long big words. I liked that. Throw a few pictures in. It would've been better. I can't read on trains icon raid. I couldn't edit. On a china. I would puke sit on a rocking chair now without feeling like going to throw wop. So that's why books just hit the spot for me. But i knew that this this wasn't going to come out. And i knew you were going to come and demand. I hand over this book. Yes well we only have one copy between the three of us. Well you know. Beck's note here. We could uh straight from the back. You're not here back tech. We could cut out of this whole loop i know. She's the busiest out of all of us. And now she's got. Love named scarlett makes me sick love. She chose love over the podcast. Who would do that. I haven't my marriage on the rocks. And i'm still here. That's how you like your marriage isn't it like you like you scotch. Always on the straight up. I did like the little interludes a with the first doctor. Yeah yeah he gets annoyed. Barbara okay sure. Tell me a little bedtime story. And then he's telling it to rose and he's telling it to brian. It's interesting because i've been going back and watching a lot of a because i've got breadbox now and i've been going back and watching the first doctor stories and just remembering well not that i'd ever seen it. But what a cranky l. bastardy was and then as he softens and it's such a pity that this missing stories because it would have been so great to see them but to watch the very first dollar story is just kinda cool and then just oh my god. The kennan has changed and evolved so much. It's quite interesting next up is he. Kills me he kills me. Not e-eh full cast audio play. Written by cary thomson featuring paul mcgann as the ice doctor released october fourteenth by big. Finish the doctor heads to the water planet athena. But something's wrong. It's a desert planet and home to the town of muslim straight out of an american weston. worst american accents. Everyone is ham in it. i know i know it was very. Hey y'all what. John adami sal says loon ball i hate it just get americans is plenty of them or one of them is like john. Barone was born in scotland but has an american accent. They talked to him like do interviews afterwards and I mean here's his was probably the best. He plays the doctor. The doctor about the democratic But just well doped. Chronic was awry but it was an look even the bartender. I could live with the bartender. I share the sheriff. Got me the sheriff it up but the bartender was like just really isn't funny. 'cause to me. The sheriff sounded like when i was in school. And we would do gilbert and sullivan oklahoma and it sounded like the teenage costs doing the. Oh what a beautiful morning. I'm not saying she was good. I'm saying that in the list of accents that had eighty eight other. i don't know he just. He didn't have any energy. Oh that's true got to him and he's like hey butter canoe knock Yeah well you say share well last. Sorry to show say park hander. Always writing someone to do the oklahoma milan. I remember too rich for my blood. Cain of bore. No more and space westerns is a trope. And it's such a trope that actually doctor who has done it before. Yeah yeah yeah. I know time assured the first doctor went and got his truth style by duck holiday. It's just i. I it just. It was really grindingly obvious. And they don't normally have that they normally. I think do a really good job now. I thought the duck to critic was it chronic. Yeah dr critic obviously was good but the rest of them. I had quite. The problem with loved loved brian. The voice is pretty good. Yeah really well done. He was kind of how. I pictured him in the book and mr bowl. It was weird listening to this. Because i'd read off of the novel and so he's quite called. He's helping the doctor because it's part of his job and then we get to this one and he is just evil. he's a psychopath. Hands gonna murray you blow blah matter mr bullies. You fuck is like mr hanky. Mr song ambushed a ball mr hand. It was lovely to hear. I thought the two famous the two women flick felicity. And so i feel really good. The dr love this story. I love hearing the the setting if it had been done. Well sure but was hamid up. Just not everyone. That's the problem. If everyone had been hamming it up. You probably would have gone all. I can say this is a maybe i don't know i just. I like the story of a father. Sending an assassin to kill the the wife of her daughter explored that. What's really scary. And i think would have been good to explore with how they genetically engineered a child. Who will never leave you. That's well one my worst night man. I thought you were gonna say you took notes and you're like how do i get that now. Are my kids are about six. And i still look at him and thank god. You're gonna get a forget get. Are you still hear how my god these people they clingy. Go in fact the world stop hanging around. May i don't wanna look i kid. My children kid and they're avid listeners. Of the podcast naval listened. Hate my guts but if you're very of nikitas relatives listening. She loves her kids life. Do i hate my relatives. I love my kids. Also on the planet fugitives and married couples. Sophie and felicity assassin. Brian the you'd who has been sent by felicitous father to return harm and kill sophie as always. The doctor gets involved and manages to rescue felicity from brian's capshaw to the heat shields needed on such a scorching planet rewired to make the residents. Look like the doctor yeah. I thought that was really clever. That was fun. It wasn't it didn't feel like a cop out. You know just a you know. And sometimes i wrap it up really quickly now. I liked that it was. It was ticky scienc-. It's interesting because i downloaded it from the big finish website and so i had to listen track by track. I couldn't for some reason. I couldn't i. You have the app or have it on my phone. But i was listed on a computer. And i couldn't put into a playlist for some reason so i had to manually click on each thing so i could see that most of the audiobook is them trying to get to the town and then there's like three tracks left and i'm like how are they going to wrap this up and then all was like. Oh okay. it's all done. Whoa shit oh holy crap. I really you felt it no. I didn't feel like it ended. Sometimes i do. Sometimes i got lila. Okay he's still alive. Oh where's this okay. This felt like derived pace. At least it felt lucky was heading towards a solution but i could see that there was little time left. Yes ause like oh what what are they gonna do to wrap it up so i felt a little bit quick. Yeah some of the audios educationally. I'll go oh wow. That was way too. Quick for me But i've enjoyed the journey that got me. there are other ones. I've been just disappointed but most of the time they short but the pacing. I find really good. And i thought the writing was really good. Maybe the acting in some places notice. Good but i thought was carried thompson. I really enjoyed her writing. The one thing that really annoyed me was the amount of time it took for them to explain to the doctor when he walks in and he's like. Oh yeah just dropped off felicity bryan and then it takes them so long because then the sheriff's lock you shut up. I'm gonna talk to this blah blah. You know we don't know who you are and stuff. It's like just tell him come out. Tell him it's a bit excruciating. But they don't know who he is but one time one time. I would like the doctor to say you know what this is. What's going on when he turns out and people got all really great. Thanks well we'll take your woodward for it and let's go and cut out all the. Oh you i'm going to shoot you your dickhead blah blah blah. It would be quite interesting. I quite love watching the show endeavor and one day i said to my husband. One day i would like an episode where endeavor goes actually. It's a serial killer whose into opera who also likes lion timing because it's usually something we'd like that and i will go okay. Great thanks but everyone is a dickhead. You don't know what you're talking about. It's and ended away because you've been right every time doesn't mean we're going to believe yeah now so it would. Oh that'd be a short episode of course but now well done to carry. I have not heard any of her stuff before. I really did enjoy it. It was probably out of everything that we listened to or read for this. It was my favorite. Wasn't my favorite. That's for sure it could. That could just pay that. I have sought a huge crush on paul mcgann and he could read me the telephone book as the doctor and i would be pleased as punk and i say when he first started talking. I didn't know it was him. I really took me a while ago. Aw oh that's puma gun. Because i don't know i've listened to the old ones. It just sounds a bit different. Well he's talked to has evolved to. I mean thank god. He doesn't have to weigh that stupid longhaired wig. I've liked how he's evolved and he's evolved been listening to the his original audio's all the way through and his character has evolved and yeah he just. I don't know i. I mean it could be that he talked to david and i need the lift and he was so nice and normal and i didn't like giggle and run away and i refuse to like olma gone until he talks and it was actually at the lift door like he could have run away but didn't attend her turnaround agha's new q. I gotcha gotcha. My favorite doctor. Now listen to all my audio episodes. I will have to say that going back to the novel. I am really starting to get the shit's with the tenth doctor. He really needs a good slapping. I can i can. I say you say that this is your favorite. The novel was my favorite. I'll really i really enjoy the novel. Yeah probably because. I read it in pieces all the time because i kept calling. That's what i read pieces. Bits and pieces and then lost had to finish like half the novel yeah. I don't know if i could stay awake for raiding just puts me to sleep now. It's very very hot in by job. And they go he rate this. What are you wake up. everything's safe. Don't paragraph one looks good on the other. Thirty seven pages. My favorite was the novel. I really enjoyed it. This was mind love audio. Brian attempts to flee but the tatis. The doctor and brian entire are transported by another craft. Brian escapes into the time vortex whilst the doctor meets his new captors the dalai. Yeah so how does this. Oh come up one bronze dickhead. Because the doctors trying to save him and he's trying to kill him with mr ball but this must be how he ends up in the dock times. Yeah oh yeah it absolutely is but still he could have just held on. Nut tried to kill him. I'm always amazed by the people in movies or anything ways. I'm going to help you. I'm gonna kill you while you're helping me You dick yes i am. Yeah and then. This must tie into the next audiobook book Which is a doctor in the dialects. I i know i'm excited about that. Second lost up. We have short trips. Master thief and lesser evils. Too short audio stories read by john cultural featuring master thief by sofi aisles and lesser evils by simon gouveia released october seventh by big. Finish master. Thief the master infiltrates the repository. A secure vault of precious items using his newly acquired. Devolve a gun and the mastercard. He's always got some kid sort of the master searches through the treasures to find a map of the bonia odds of knife however he finds that exiting the facility is hotter than getting in the creatures of this world evolved from empathic creatures that consumed mental energy. And it's infecting the mazda making him lose himself and even worse care about the people he's killed right right. What did you think. I can't you know how i feel about the mazda classic master. Love him. I love him. The classic master to me is a big decade. So this is the one. I put off till the very last because i thought one. He's always killing something and he's depressing. Nobody ever just cuts his head off. Shoot him in the face and kicks him. Dem stays which i would so this was a tough one. It started off exactly the way. I thought it. Would he kills everybody blah blah blah blah. I did actually love the tweets. I loved that he started to care that it really bothered him. It reminded me or took me back to thinking about missy. And how missy was trying to go on that journey i loved that about missy and i thought that that always gave the master just a little bit more depth in character in the classic. He really was the mustache. Twelve and really not as smart as the doctor. Never just shrunk things so well done to sophie who wrote this authorities really good job. Yeah i really liked it. The narrator was amazing with his roger. I forget his daughter delgada. He did a really good job. John culture has done quite a few doctor. who impressions. Well he did. A wonderful job wasn't exact. Paju was closed and the inflections that he did with very good. Although the way he pronounced gloss really really distracted me what was it. Oh i can't even remember now. But every time i said i got but yeah i really liked it and i m surprised to say i liked master story from classic mazda. I'd like to eat like the twist feeling feelings. And what gives him. You were interesting and kind of you knew you knew that. The master was there to infiltrate to steal something. He was there for a specific thing. Are we going to find out what that thing is. What it does out of knives weighed by what she did. What sophie did many to do was even though these were monarch characters that you didn't see much. She managed to get me to care about them. I cared about. Georgina cared about the couple that embraced. I cared about the sergeant. Who's tried to talk the master down. It really work for me. Yeah no it was really good. It was it was heartbreaking as you're further and further and they were down to that gun going off and it's like oh you to stop killing everybody. What are your thoughts of the classic master. Not the new mazda not seen any of the classic mazda really. This is probably my best interaction to the classic mazda. We are going to have to review one so that you may join me in my hatred. Okay certainly on it onto the second part lesser evils on the planet of alexa. Sorry on the planet of alexis alexa alexa. Hello to woman to to pronounce catoon roger ca to route to. We need to come up with something that will remind us. You need to run. Yeah hey route. On the planet of alexis mature woman assigns lifespans to the inhabitants.

Don't yeah is it from the head. is it fairly chest. Is it from the side is it. Your is it. Painless a really wanted to see a picture of the child's skull from the novel where they're like he he's on a tripod and he's a water prehensile tile and some of the characters. You had you got a picture in your head. I would love to say. But i don't remember them telling me where the came from. I was quite curious and isolated away on alexis for years. The master who's become rather fund of the magellan's. Es has he turns out. He wants the crystals to power of weapon of some sort. Yes and i hate to say this. Because he's probably a lovely person and a lovely active. But this is the master i height the most. Anthony ci- leah. i hate. It's his way. His characters written are loathe him. The voices amazing. He does the voice. Amazing let me let me say. Even though i quite didn't like he kills me. Kills me. not this lesser evils is the thing that i liked the least out of all of these releases. Yeah yeah i'm with you. Well now. I highlighted the great vampires. The mo- at least a gray van pas over quickly to listen to this twice because the languages so flowery and it's very descriptive and stuff but then when they near the end where they actually try to get into the story. I'm like it just wasn't i was still distracted by it and was very. I'd go and listen to it again. It just dragged on and on. It's only half now along just dry. Did feel like an hour. He did feel like an hour. And i was listening to it and i had to listen to the last bit to work out a k. He doesn't actually give a toss here. He's using the stones because he wants the starnes to michael weapon or something like that so he's not pleading for their lives because he gives a tall sir. He's pleading for them to live for thousands of years so the starting good typical of the master. Now you're right. I can never get that half hour and that extra ten minutes back again. And i wish i could and also just to make it a little worse. It's the master classic mazda who i like and it's my least favorite master so i could have done without that. You could have just read me the synopsis. In fact i did try to halfway through. I thought i wonder if someone's reviewed this market. Just read the business. Because i don't wanna do it and yet strange because this is actually in the schedule of releases. This is the first story that was released where we find out how to say couture. Well that's true. It was released at the start of october. This was the first time we actually heard someone say the word couture who could chew is how i'm going to remember. We are the ones have just been written down and in fact they don't even say it didn't say to master thief that inciting he kills me kills me not so. This is actually the only time we've heard them say couture interesting catoon should be interesting to see if maybe maybe he just said it wrong. Yeah it's actually cat tara. And i'll go out no i can't come up with. Everyone says it differently. Well i think they've set the set it up now i will. I think the next lot will be even more exciting. Start connecting stuff together. Yeah except the vampire. Warm will still be shit. The vampire when we know next to the novel because the ninth doctor turns up in the coffin ship. Yes well that's true. Maybe roses dead and we can move on. the coffin. Ship has time travel capabilities. Because he's already in the dock times that's right just a bit jiggery-pokery as the ninth doctor would site well. They say in in lesser evils that the master has been exiled to this planet by the time lords. But why did they exile him in the middle of the times. Because the kapoor's there. I know and you'll you just read the novels so it's fresher in your mind that it is in mind so you're saying that i'm going. Oh god i feel like. I've just consumed a lot. Yeah and some of it. It starts to blend into one but if just feels like the first lot we did was alright. This feels like it's building to something. I'm really looking forward to the next few releases and more audio plays as plenty more and finally canaries. A short story written by dave run and released on the doctor who website. The story was published to promote the release of the christmas. Short story collection. The wintertime paradox in a small pine village switzerland anchor. Von gristle runs the very bare of ver- beer museum of the impossible. Got your sitting in. I'm thinking i don't even remember the stripe do now. Among her artifacts are items that shouldn't exist glimpses of realities that no longer exist. Does she has visited. Only one person ever calls her. The doctor kohl's begging anchor to let him look through her exhibits. These canaries in a mine warning of changes. The doctor must fix But uncut clings to these fax hoping they may earn reunite her with a loved one who disappeared twenty years ago not just disappeared. Apparently never existed. Latest exhibit is two mosques a male silver mask and a female gold mask on christmas night on co gets the coal not just from the doctor but from the curators and siblings. Same and sibling different are awake. Done da da. These two mosques. Apparently a little bit of research Tie into the wintertime paradox. And their two characters out of that short story collection. Apparently don't have anything to do with john. Lewis victorious otherwise we would included it in our synopsys. Yes what. I find with the short stories and things like that. Because i've haven't been into them beforehand or even the comex. They can be cold backs to stuff like that. Which is canon that you don't know about and i find that the frustrating thing i liked this short strategy i liked it but they were things that i was very confused about but i did like it and i could see how it would fit into. He kills me. Kills me not because the doctors trying to find olds to what is it the status of the world. Yeah i love one that existed for ten minutes. I like where he's like. Oh the statue of the forget what his name is that guy ocean. Now hang on. That guy owed me money. Can you please not in the middle of the please just get at. Everybody have a look at this year's such card. Play it again sam. Oh sheriff that reminds me of the time that i let a man live and didn't let the other manley. I'm so sorry of that. Well now that that exposition out of the way let's continue. I love the way that they've finally found a way for if the doctor's travelling alone to talk without just explaining what he's doing tokes to the toddlers and that makes perfect sense. Because i yell at the television quite often particularly when trump's on get off my television you do you deal with the television. i'm pressing the button to turn the channel television. I am not going to put up with trump panel longer vaguely. We have to You yeah really think that one's going on this short story makes a bit more sense. When you realize that it's it's sort of a promotion for i lodge a series of stories editor. How this fits in with the timely dettori's but some of the artifacts there's a a coin from the fifties hitless face yes is a la- fain. I was fascinated by that bid and i want to know the story how they all came there where they come from if i do something. That's the story of all the artifacts. Oddly fascinated by that i. That's one of the most amazing things when you go to a museum and you find something and this was found and it belonged to fred. The roman soldier. Oh roman soldier. I'm fascinated into how to get. Who was the person who ended names. Frayed i'm a roman soldier. Get outta my bar. Went to mongolia for work. I'll wow and it was so crazy because there was a certain a map. There was a a puzzle museum. So i was like i gotta find this puzzle. It's like in the middle of the suburbs. And it's like it took me ages to find. Well that's the puzzle. I thought i was going to get the shit kicked out. 'cause i dug a lot of western but my found is puzzling museum and i went through it. And it's amazing wound. Apparently mongolians are like some of the best puzzle. Creators retire well. They've won the top puzzle prize house. It's kind of known for that Right wow yeah. It was really interesting. Because i'm not quite sure what mongolia is known for. Except for was genghis khan. Yeah that that's probably statue of genghis. Khan yep yeah yeah well it's nothing like putting a big statue of angus khan who liked to build pyramids out of women's heads and katz. I mean what he's got against cats if that's the material to works try bricks now. Let's try the thing again. Men's heads no just women's olympia the capital of mongolia. It's the capital of mongolia luneta. Yeah i do not did not shitloads of as long as like anything in welsh u. l. a. a. Now welsh welsh is all incident but basically. It's like brisbane if we didn't have the infrastructure in place so they have pretty much the same population for all of mongolia but then to get in and out of the city is like a one one lane highway either way not even a highway just like a dirt road guy track. Yeah so when we went out to the massive statute to come back in took us two hours to get back into the city because it was just one lane back into the city by. I was insane. So they're not the richest country in the world. They're doing a lot of mining this so they'll be getting some money out of that because one of the things ustralia. We're very good at this. When we find something we mind the shit out of it. I mean you'd think we'd mind call or some shit but No i look i find shit. Mining is got to. We've got to stock more shit for the politicians. Spit it out. Well the politicians talk some anything else. You'd like to mention about our time. Lord victorious. Well is for the month. What i will say is some of it was great. Some of it was painful end. I'm really curious now. When we started doing this i was like. Do i want to do this well. Only because i love reviewing all episodes. I love to watch the tv series. Do not apply. Doesn't i have discovered the mind you love of comics because when you touch him the next No i'm actually really really on board. So i was on a semi on board when we started. Now i'm well. I just like to keep you happy because then you craw input on turn yup. That's me i every time i try to lay cars. I know i'm really curious now. And i think it's going to get much more exciting. We've done the building. Now we're going to get to some full on some interconnecting stories and multi doctor stories and yemen. That's like a wet dream really isn't an if i had them so Predictions fulltime victorious. Let's go through our previous predictions nikita. You said crystal. Moths would make another appearance. Hasn't happened yet. River song would make another appearance. Has anne hathaway book knows flies. That were in the short story from last month. I thought that with crystal matsen. The book thong little flies that they eat. That was disgusting. Yeah that was flies. Just chew on. 'cause he don't want to say that someone who aids flaws. If you eat flies out there was so incredibly. Sorry that's your choice. That's your choice brian. You get with You said beneath some filled would make an appearance which hasn't happened yet. she will end. She directed one of them beneath sowa field to fictional character. Lisa thought lisa baron. O don't worry about me what are you are you a k having a stroke. Yes kitty slow. Burn tires yes now. I'm fine. I still think she'll come back again. Multi doctor story. She'll be there you said the thirteenth doctor would make an appearance but not in the order. Audio's correct yes. She made an appearance at the end of defender of the dialects. You think she'll be back again. Well she thinks she's done. She might come back at the comics. Come back in the okay. You said something to do with the death zarin. Perhaps across over with the five doctors still hasn't happened and you said more doctors than have been announced will appear. We did get a brief appearance of the first doctor in the school and the dead day. We go any other predictions look. I think they'll be the second doctor and the third and the fourth okay. You're sticking to all of doctors will appear all of them okay. Any other predictions yes. The master's head will fall off. And i won't have to see him again. That's more of a wishlist. Okay the master will come back in and he will be rubbish. His plan will be rubbish but he will come back in show with these rubbish plan and the doctor will get him onside to help and then he will try to kill the doctor. Because he's rubbish killed. dr kill. kill the doctor. Gail the doctor to kill. Kill the duck. My predictions were that a lot would be set in the dock. Time cy far. We've only had the night the fool and the dead are the coming back in. Well we've only had the one. I said that the you'd assassin would help the tenth doctor and would be annoyed that the catoon ru killing his targets. Which is half correct yeah. Brian does help the tenth doctor. But it's not because he's annoyed that his targets getting killed. Although that could still happen. And i said all of the doctors involved had already been announced well. We had a brief appearance by the fist. Dr Do i have any other predictions. Yes tell me Love the way he just talking to yourself now. I'm talking talking to our listeners on talking to you. Because you're i've got you get some in a hall in the room listening to defer w hi sweetie hey honey bun defoe w holy shit. Is it hot in here love. It's getting hot in here. So tak- volya shoes. I am taking off my shoes. It's getting to create a saying. Hey i don't have any major predictions. I think this the stories are going to start connecting to each other. I think there's another short story that's been released but i think most of the releases have been announced. I think we're going to get too many more releases. What about the master. Do you think we're going to have the master again. Yeah that's interesting i think. Yeah i think the maybe modern master. I don't know if i can use them on a master yet. But i think that the the map that he looking for the m- the map of the bone yards of knife. I think that might come back into it. Yeah so we'll see. Was it the bunny out of not for the bonnie out of knives like was it is was that a free set of steak knives that he lost and joe's mall just on a mission. Find it you said. I have phrase take knives. The first time i listened to. It sounded like he. He said the word knife and then the second time i listened to it sounded like he was trying to say like a made up planet by me so i don't know but it sounded like knife so i write down knife. I think it's his way. The gentleman enunciates the i. Because every time he said the word gloss an icon do it. But i would go is is no. It wasn't even those glues was all vice like that. I didn't know anyone who listens to it. You'll now all you'll hear is every time he says the word glues your true to could do. Cohen rue qatar ru. And if you are following. Time lord victorious. Please join us on facebook or twitter to discuss. That's it that's it. Time would victorious force early october. Wow so we've got then november and december december. That's months work. Yes and then we have Christmas december and and keep going through the whole calendar. Nine thirty days. I've got a story for you before we do this. A friend of mine decided to do a trivia quiz. Was her turn to write the questions. And she thought she'd start off fairly easy so she said how many days are in september and the first person said the two and she went to new and the second person said twenty eight and then she said to me deservably learn the wrong limb so i thought that was an interesting thing and the next person's halfway between both of them and he was correct. It's just icon. I don't get them. I mean everybody knows nor months have thirty two days in a well exactly right. I thought everybody knew that. He does has september. April june and november la blah blah blah blah blah. I want keep going through it. I just think it's insane that someone thought there was a to thirty two and twenty. You know it's february early february twenty eight day. I know and i'm starting to think that the world is getting dumber. If it's not february the answer is either thirty or one that is it. Yeah but then again. David would put one hand behind his back inside a my daughter how many she was six or seven. How many fingers in my holding up and she'd say six so they got well she was from toowoomba. That's true that's true. Many had six fingers which hand is coming out of my house your sixth any plugs in the kia not yet. I'm getting close as always you can follow adema sullivan comedian on facebook and visit the nerd.
