"thea" Discussed on 860AM The Answer
"Thea answer. Back my conversation with Alex. Just from a tactical viewpoint. I love the idea of playing offense, and I love the idea of keeping restaurant using solid skis rules for radicals. This is actually the closest that we're actually getting to use in their own rules against them because we're making the enemy live up to their own book of standards. We're keeping the pressure on. We are using a tactic that we actually enjoy, which is challenging the tech companies. Something that you and I are, actually, you know, excited to do so I think it's brilliant in that sense. Do I know what do I think it's enough? I don't really know. So in closing, Alex Final question here, Charlie and thank you for Coming on. It's breaking the news. Check it out. I can't wait to learn more about this. What is one thing that you've learned recently that you think would be helpful if other people came to the same conclusion that you did. What's one thing that you learned last couple months last couple weeks? You said, huh? I didn't know that or I'm looking at something differently that I want more people than that. Yeah, it's really a great question. And some of it is I probably already I already gave in the opening to this. But I do think that the biggest thing going is on the right A where we prioritize. Our time has been my biggest frustration since November, the sixth and there's a lot of people who will prioritize their time in a different way in service of a similar cause, and we're falling this trap where we're dismissing people who have ideas that are not passing a purity test. Like, For example, I was always a skeptic that you know it was the Venezuelan voting machines and Frank first. That was really what overturning the election because I thought it was, you know, Google and the new rules for the coronavirus that were obviously not based in science. They were based on one of the Democrats elected with more mail in ballots. I've been banging that drum. And then when people saw that I wasn't on board with the talking all day about about the big check, you know, I'm sorry, the the flipping of the ballots, you know, people kind of man. Me and stuff are getting negative messages and negative phone calls and radio and I think that that's very is not a wise move on the right. I think the right has a lot of opportunity to fix some of the stuff now, before they throw us all off the Internet for Democrats get more power. I think we're much more powerful than we think. And if we if we can get on the same page on the right, I'm not saying about unifying with Joe Biden, who calls us all the anti Semites, a white supremacist. But on the right I could see a unity in the conservative movement. It does seem like Trump's ideas prevailed his principles one the day people are pretty much in agreement. Now on Big tech is a threat. China's a threat. Immigration is a threatened after was terrible. We're in too many wars, there is almost in total consensus on the right. That provides an incredible opportunity. And then we just spent the last three months fighting over Dominion voting machines. It's such a waste, and I wish we would stop it. If we would stop it. We're probably gonna dominate the next few elections. Think that's a great point. And the biggest thing that I learned the last couple months. Eyes. The ability is how people want to believe something when they see that there's an injustice, which I think it's the most interfered election in American history from the tech side from the balloting side, however, I was pushing back constantly in a different way of people that were emailing me saying that Mike Pence was in Gitmo like Mike Pence is not in Gitmo, okay? And I think that that that sort of deviation from yes, reality was very was very destructive and right. I think that we need to stand and by the way, that doesn't mean I've done more coverage on these topics than most, and you have to Were unafraid to take it on. We're not avoiding it At the same time I refuse. I refuse to add oxygen into something I believe is pathologically on Truman again. The Frankfurt Venezuelan thing. I'm a skeptic. I don't know about that people. I get emails from people that believe firmly. And that? Yes, And I'm a skeptic. Yeah, exactly. And we covered every newsworthy detail of all that a bright park, but I, but we did do it skeptically. We're not trying to keep the information from you guys. Absolutely not. We put it all out there. The issue is that wasn't what What swung the election. What's wrong? The election, but the chief by mail in the big Tak manipulating what people read. That was yet and we fix those two things. If we come back to a system where people show up on Election day with an I D and they vote unless you're in the middle Territory, and you actually cannot get to a polling place and we were store that and we made it still that Zuckerberg and Jesus and the freaks over Google stop targeting people who disagree with him politically. And Jack, Billy goat Dorsey. If we got those guys to start playing fair, it's over in the right is gonna start dominating for generations because we're coaching on the values. As I said, we're all we're all locks up on the values. So now we got to get back on the playing field. I'm those two issues. That's my take. I agree. Trump was the great political Liberator. He has changed the Republican Party in politics for good. And if we take a cue from all the sudden, courageous and popular and populist conservatives like Rhonda Sanders, I think we went everything. I think that the conservative movement is going to stop dominant in five years we are and it's going to be unbelievable. Okay, Breaking the news by Alex Marlow. Alex, You must come back.

But a statement also notes that the couple is still very much considered much loved members of the royal family. The decision by Queen Elizabeth isn't a surprise, since Harry and Meghan are now fully involved with her a lot. I've seen careers in media in southern California, Thea now it's mint comes about a year after the couple announced they were pulling back from their British royal duties. Ah, woman
Fawn Weaver: A Woman's Self-Made Journey
"My father when he was alive, But I'd still tease my mother that we were his their pastors, guinea pigs and so so pretty much because they came from being in the entertainment industry with wild parties and sex and drugs and rock and roll and all the rest of that stuff, And then you come into this Southern Baptist. Type of situation like out of all of the denominations to choose they chose Southern Baptists. By absolutely would not listen to anybody, Thea, unless unless you could actually make the argument to me as to why what you are saying is correct Or why what you are saying I should do? I would not do it. And so I had authoritative parents. Who said what? You should do it because I said to doing Oh, yes. Oh, that's not gonna work for me. I'm going to need you to tell me the thinking behind why you're telling me to do What you're doing. So needless to say, I bumped heads with my parents more than a little bit and it really came to a head when I was 15 years old and I left home and I left home and I moved in with some folks that were in the projects an area in what's called Jordan Downs, so They're sort of two projects. Main projects. One was home of the Grape Street Crips, which is where I was, and then across the way was Nickerson Gardens, home of the Bounty hunter bloods. And so I at 15 years old move into this environment, not really knowing anything about it on Lee knowing that these kids at high school they had parents that let them do whatever they wanted. And I wanted freedom. I wanted to make my own decision. So I move into the hood and realize very quickly Number one. The hood has ah lot of cockroaches. I had never seen those before. But the second thing was, I realized very quickly. How I did not fit in. And I did not fit in it for a couple of reasons, one of which my my grandmother is from Germany. My grandfather was fighting in World War two and he was stationed in Germany. My grandmother is a blond hair, blue eye woman growing up under Hitler's regime who does not see things the way that Hitler saw them, obviously, because she fell in love with my grandfather. She couldn't speak English. He couldn't speak German. And the entire time they were alive. Neither one of them could explain how in the world they got together when neither one spoke the other's language. And so they got married. They had my mother and my mother is very fair skin as as a result of that relationship, So then I am not fair skin, but I've got, you know, bright green eyes and light colored hair. Andre. And so when I moved into Jordan Downs, I didn't realize I look different. But I was at a concert at in the projects one day and literally the guy from stage. He's rapping and I'm enjoying And he looked me dead in the eyes with all these people around, and he says, we have a half breed in the house. I didn't even know what a half breed wasps and I'm looking around and everyone's looking at me. And it was a very pivotal moment for me because I realized, OK, I don't I don't fit in, and I did not realize I didn't fit in. So I'm in an environment where I'm surrounded by African Americans, but realized they didn't see me. As fully African American, and that was an interesting lesson. So I go from there and I go and I stay with another person who I had met through school similar situation. And then she had a abusive boyfriend who came over with a knife one day so that didn't work out. And so I moved at the age of 17 almost about to be 18 and to a home called Children of the night, But I didn't fit in there, either, because Children of the night a specifically a homeless shelter for people who were prostitutes and people have been trafficked and things of that nature. And so I'm in this environment because it's the only place that had a bed for me. And rather than go back home, where I would, you know, go toe to toe with my parents. I really wanted to set out on the life of my own. So I made that decision. But Children of the night when you turn 18, you must move. And so a soon as I turned 18, I moved to a place called Covenant House, which is an amazing organization for kids who are 18 and older who find themselves homeless. For whatever reason, there's no judgment, so we're all in this. This location, Covenant house and they had a program where it's set up where you go out every day, and you look for a job. And you come back. And if you get a job, they hold your money for you. Basically in a savings account to allow you to say for your own place, which I absolutely loved. There were two things that I discovered. While being at Covenant House number one that the current theme of I didn't sit in, and I did not seem to be the same as the people around me. And I learned that on my first day of being there, we all had to go out and look for jobs. And so we all went out. We look for jobs. We came back and we sat around this sort of campfire and this I mean, this is not a small organization. This is over 100. Kids that are, you know, 18 to. I'd say early twenties were all sitting around at least 100 of us and everyone is talking about their challenges. Of getting a job that day and how they were able to get a job that day, and I literally sat silent and the reason I sat silent as I went out to get a job, and I came back with four and The second thing that I discovered is in my relationship with money. I didn't care about it other than to have the ability to have to be able to be free and to have my own place and things of that nature, so I saved up money. Very quickly and was able to move out because every day I went to multiple jobs, and I saved my money and I went out. I was able to get my own place and to begin Living my own life. But that was my road through my teenage through my teenage years, and then I started my own company. After saving money and working multiple jobs rather than going and working for someone else I realized so far I have not been like everyone else. I've been a leader and every single situation I've been in since I was a kid. I think this is the way I'm wired. And so I started a PR And special events firm and not surprising because of the circles that I was in that when I did special events. There was usually some type of celebrity involved in it. And so in that regard I definitely had a a head start. In that I also beat my office was actually my father's office in Pasadena. He wasn't using it, and it was just sort of a vacant office. I said, Hey, I'm going to start a business. You're not using this office. Can I can I take it over for my own company? And so that is that is what I did, and that's how I began. I was quite young. And like most young people, you don't know what you're doing. And so you're going to fail a few times before you actually get it right. And that instant I hired I think I think I 10 people working for me before I was like 20 just absolutely absurd. And so I've I've learned how to do things better to say the least, leaving home so early and to really fend for myself. It gave me a I think it underscored the confidence that I already had. And I don't think that that would have happened if I had gone the normal route of staying at home until I was 18 or 17 and going to college and four years in college and And going that path. I don't think that the way that I look at life my optimism in looking at everything and saying no matter how difficult things are, they can absolutely get better and they will get better. And I know this because I've been there and so having that background I think allows me to be My husband refers to me or when he's describing to me to other people, he'll He'll refer to me as unflappable, and I think that that comes from that upbringing and everything that I saw once I left home.

Understanding the GameStop Stock Market Drama
"Markets have been shaken again over the past two weeks as Reddit Day traders boosted shares of companies like game Stop. And sent short selling hedge funds running with long short funds losing 6% overall last month, and Melvin Capital alone, plummeting 53%. But most hedge funds emerged unscathed. And Steve Cohen's 0.72 even attracted $1.5 billion in new money. Here's sweet that Ramachandran, GAM investment manager, I assume hedge funds are probably reluctant to short small cap stocks right now, if the fear that the Reddit brigade might be behind those, But by early this week, game stops to the moon rally started to come back toward Earth, and not even the reddit flash mob or changes the top of the company. Could get the irrational exuberance going again reminding us why hedge funds and short sellers target companies like Gamestop investor that gets caught in the up dressed on that and doesn't understand that investing well, it looks like it's all going up to the person to click the last by understand that that could happen to them that quickly. That's former e trade financial CEO Carl Rossner. I ask Council on foreign relations senior fellow Sebastian Mallaby, if anything will fundamentally change. In the hedge fund world. I don't really, I mean, I think that hedge funds which of course, go back to the sixties, at least have proven to be an amazingly robust platform from which to think creatively about risk. Ondo. They adapt. You know they get new stuff yesterday in their ways when they began, there was no such thing as trading currencies because turned his world fixed it together one mark, it's hardly existed. You have to trade stocks by appointment on. They adapted all the way through that, As everything changed the authentic thea advent of reddit the advent of Robin Hood. This is just the latest iteration of the long, long history of financial innovation, and every time hedge funds figure it out. You also have regulators trying to figure it out as it were, after the fact we have the Treasure Secretary Janet Yellen now saying She's meeting with regulators, saying, We need to take a hard look at this about the volatility and whether this might actually put in jeopardy. Some investors. We also have hearings in Congress coming up. Do you expect there might be some tweaking, at least to the regulations? I think with respect to Robin Hood on the fact that it had to close down Access to trading on second stocks. That's the kind of market interruption which regulators order take action on. You need the infrastructure of trading to be reversed you, you know you need to look at the plumbing, and some regulators put it. And so the back part of the system will definitely because they're fresh. Look, What about on the short selling side? There have been proposals as you know, well for short, so staff to disclose their positions, individual positions, which is done is I understand in Europe. Do you think there might be a renewal of that call? And by the way, why do we have to disclose on the long side and not the short? I'm not sure, Actually, that hedge funds do disclose on the long side unless they buy more than Disposable fresh over believe it's 5% or something off the company so you could get away with a lot without disclosing. I think you know when you Taking a really big position. Probably there's it becomes a systemic threat to you. You know, you might blow up if that position where to go very badly wrong on so regulators to care about the soundness of the system ever all Have a legitimate interests, but I think it's more positions shouldn't have to be disclosed. But we certainly had some large hedge funds who took a big hit on. I wonder whether that did suggest it could be systemic risk here. Well, the beauty of hedge funds is that through their long history They've proven to be smart enough to fail. Not too big to fail, they actually can blow up and people often cite long term capital management in 1998 Aziz. The big exception actually, if you go back and look at that incident The New York Fed convened the banks to recapitalize them, but no taxpayer money. Zero went him. So freestanding hedge funds. I'm not counting here, the subsidiary of best stones that went wrong in a rage. Freestanding hedge funds have never had a taxpayer bailout mills in capital has not needed to taxpayer bailout. That's the good thing about hedge funds.

Dr. Kenneth Calvert on the History of Puritans
"Back America to hear it. The Hillsdale dialogue sponsored by Hill. Tell college that you hear each week at this time is underway. All things Hillsdale collected it.

Which teach the founding and Dr Larry on President. Hillsdale College is joined by Dr Kenneth Calvert. Dr Katz When we went to break we're about to talk about the founding up North Way discussed the laws of Virginia three weeks ago. People who go and listen to that. That's England transplanted. What is it that the pilgrims had in mind? And when did the Pilgrim's become the Puritans? And how did they diverge? And when does the Salem compact come into this conversation? Well, I think it's important to understand that James, the first of England was really attempting to create a culture built around the Church of England. Andre English, Christianity on and then what happened in the midst of that was that you have two ends of a spectrum kind of cut off from from inclusion in that one are the Puritans on one side, the other are those who choose to hang on to their Catholicism's And on the product inside the Puritans and the pilgrims were ones who really struggled with this idea of being you know, essentially forced into into the Church of England. The Pilgrim's being separatist left first went to the Netherlands and, um, realize that their Children were becoming Dutch more than they leaving behind English tradition. So what's very interesting about the pilgrims? And then the Puritans that followed them is that they were very much you know, Uh, Honoring the King and stand and Parliament of England. But they did struggle with the religious, um, on church structure that had been established. And so the pilgrims ended up coming to the northern colonies and the pilgrims being much more separatist, much more distinct in their attempt. T O be separate from the Church of England, the Puritans who came after them and again. There's a lot of discussion is how one really makes a distinguished distinguishes between these two groups. The Puritans. Many of them were from London. Many of them were involved in commerce and business. Many of them had been trained at Cambridge University, Cambridge University in that at that time, tend to be the kind of intellectual center Puritanism. And what they wanted to do in this new colony or new colonies in the north was to really establish Christian Republic, Um, still under, um You know the King and Parliament of England but to establish a kind of government again, As I said earlier, that might Be a a model for how Christians would live with and among one another, they established the first university in the colonies, Harvard University. Established. You know, in the name of John Harvard, who was a Puritan from Stratford upon Avon and in 16 36. This this college became a university was established. Train pastors and to give a high level of education to the leadership of the Puritan communities

Fight against Cove in 19 intensifies as cases continue to climb and now multiple variants are circulating globally one new variant, which the CDC says emerged in the UK a few months ago. Has been detected here in the U. S not necessarily reasons to sound the alarm but definitely something that we have to watch. We've learned from the CDC viruses constantly change their mutation and new variants of the virus are expected over time. Sometimes new variants emerged and disappear. Other times, new variants emerge and start infecting people to break this all down. We spoke with Dr David Banik, the hospital epidemiologist for Yukon Health. Most of these mutations are not very significant, but sometimes there's another mutations and placed actually change some aspect of the virus. What's been seen so far is that this particular variant of the virus seems to be highly transmissible so it can spread quite easily. What we do know from the CDC is currently there's no evidence he's Variants caused more severe illness or increased risk of death. What we don't know in what scientists are working to figure out is how wide lead these new variants have spread, or how the new variants stiffer.

Pandemic Advances Scientific Understanding Of Viruses' Air Transmission
"Up, we're taking a look back at some of 20 twenties major events and one of the most remarkable scientific advances this year came in our understanding of how respiratory viruses can be transmitted from one person to another through the air. Krone virus pandemic obviously made this an urgent question. And NPR's Nell Greenfield Boys reports that old scientific ideas quickly got thrown out of the window. For decades. The prevailing idea about respiratory viruses was that some were airborne, and some just weren't so back in January, Thea understanding of how viruses spread through the air. Was really primitive and incorrect. Lindsay Mars, a researcher at Virginia Tech, who studies virus transmission, she says textbooks and research papers said an airborne virus was something like measles. It could be breathed out in tiny particles called aerosols that hang in the air. Those aerosols contractual long distances from room to room. All of that was very different from non airborne viruses like flew in the common cold. Those were thought to spread through coughs and sneezes, big droplets that travel just a few feet. Maher says. This whole simplistic picture was just wrong. There were very small number of people in the world. I think who really understood at that time how viruses spread through the air, and these people realize that the new coronavirus might be airborne at short distances. That is if people talked or saying the virus could be in small particles, as well as the big droplets and coughs and in a poorly ventilated space. These particles could build up as the Corona virus outbreak took off. These experts started making a lot of noise about this and people paid attention. Maher says She thought it would take 30 years for more nuanced ideas about airborne transmission to gain widespread acceptance. But it's happened in months. It's been pretty wild to see airborne transmission of viruses become Big news. Scientific studies came superfast Josh than Tar. Pia is a researcher at the University of Nebraska Medical Center. We're not even 12 months in and We know things about this virus that you know, we don't know about some viruses that we've had around for decades. His medical center took care of some of the first people with Corona virus in the United States. Santo Pia recalls standing at the end of their beds with a device that collected air while they talked or breathed his lab, then analyzed the tiny airborne droplets. Looking for the genetic signature of the Corona virus. We were getting positives more than one positive in the air samples, and I can't say the words that I said But you're kind of broadcast this, but I was shocked signs of the virus were in such tiny particles. He worried that nothing less than the most protective masks could stop it. Soon, though, studies showed that even basic cloth masks were able to reduce the amount of virus that gets out into the air and suddenly mask wearing became routine sent our P A was floored and how ventilation became part of the normal daily conversation. You know how well ventilated is the space shouldn't be spending time inside or outside. You know how much all these things it's changed so much about the way we view the world. The question is, Will this be a lasting change? Donald Milton is a research Teacher at the University of Maryland School of Public Health. He spent years showing how better ventilation in dorms or offices is associated with a lower risk of respiratory disease transmission, he says. We need to figure out engineering solutions to improve the safety of indoor spaces like getting better ventilation, using air filters, even using special lights up by a room ceiling to disinfect circulating air. I want to see us understand how it is that you can make her Restaurant, a safe place to be during flu season and during a pandemic. I think it's doable, but he's afraid that once vaccines get this virus in check, people will lose interest at least until the next pandemic. Nell Greenfield Boys NPR news

"T. e. r. dot net I know it's been a while since I've done an episode of this podcast it's just been one of those years where there's not a lot coming out in theaters because theaters open ver very few I should say better showing any kind of new movies. There are some things that are shown on streaming services and I'm going to be talking about one of those films to day. It is on Disney's streaming platform called Disney plus it's a film that was actually bad to be put into theaters here in twenty twenty. But of course, the opportunity just did not arise. So they are allowing it for people who subscribe to Disney plus and there's no extra charge like Milan which is going to be coming out very shortly. Lease at the time of this recording is a PG rated film I personally think it probably could have gotten away with a G. Rating, but it does have mild thematic elements. One Hour thirty five minutes is the run time Bryan Cranston Ariana Green Blat Ramon. Rodriguez Owen Arthur Mike White are in the live action cast. This actually has a live action cast as well as the CG characters that are provided with voice actors like Sam, Rockwell Danny Devito, Brooklyn Prints Angelina Jolie, Chaka, Khan Ron funches, inhale, and Mirren the Director for the One and only Ivan is Thea sharrock and the screenplay credited to Mike White. A Disney first approached Mike White writer to adapt Katherine Applegate's Twenty Twelve Children's book called. Of course, the one and only Ivan One Newbery Medal in twenty thirteen and white looked at this. He was not keen on adapting a children's book but he was emotionally affected when he did choose to read it it was very sad. It was poetic amid the cutesy are aspects of the book. It did have a lot of ethical challenges some inspirational material as well. So weit decided he was going to give it ago applegate based her book on a real life account. So it's kind of based. It's inspired by a true story as they say at the beginning of the film, there was actually a four hundred pound silverback gorilla named Ivan and he was born in one, thousand, nine, hundred, sixty, two was captured by poachers shortly after that he was brought. To the United States, and he spent twenty seven years in captivity at the public marketplace in Tacoma Washington before the Public Kurt about Ivan Story and demanded that he should be able to find a better pastures somewhere the story for the movies purposes, centers around Ivan that silverback who lives in a cage as the star of a struggling animal show at a suburban shopping center called the big top mall and video arcade at exit eight. Ivan's main stick as part of this indoor circus is to roar he has to look intimidating but behind the scenes, he is just a very thoughtful and sensitive soul. Talented animals. Animal acts under the care of this beleaguered ringleader named Mac played by Bryan Cranston. Those animals include baseball playing chicken. There's a Sassy poodle bunny, a seal, a parrot, and there's this elderly elephant named Stella plus a stream Mutt sometimes comes around to talk to you Ivan his name is Bob. released. That's the name they give him. Befriends the young daughter of the mall cleaner who hands him some crayons to draw and takes to this it's something he. has an interest in doing which has mac seeing dollar signs. When he finds out that his guerrilla can draw Ivan going to be the one to save his floundering circus attraction but not quite enough I think because Mac has to secure the services of this adorable baby elephant named Ruby. She arrives to become the latest big attraction under the tutelage and loving guidance of Stella the Elderly Elephant. The drawing the painting plus Ruby's arrival those all start to trigger Ivan's memories of his childhood of freedom in the wild with his family where he actually was kind of an artist there to. Meanwhile Stella does not want ruby to live a sheltered life as she has had all her life. So Ivan plans to break free and deliver ruby to a life of freedom if he can go through with his plans to do that. Now, Mike White writer director of two, thousand, seven year of the dog. He's had experience with animal movies. He was also planning to direct the One and only Ivan at one point but he decided that he would only right for this one there were a lot of technical challenges that he was not ready to take up. But white also appears in the film. He has a cameo role. You'll see him driving by the mall in a car during sequence and he also provides the voice of the seal named. Frankie. White. Felt that the story needed a bit more locale expansion he gave it more character based humor that was a more caper like plot put into the film, and there's a lot more story acceleration to try to get it to work as a successful all ages movie for about ninety minutes, Mike, Newell when White decided he wasn't GonNa direct he stepped in, but he soon left the project after a few months. So in two thousand, seventeen, Disney secured veteran theatre director Thea sharrock who was coming off of her first big screen. Effort this romantic tear jerker hit called me before you.

"So the thea- jen's getting back to the question is just a if they're new ways of understanding how someone would use a psychedelic other than just partying because psychedelics are not really party drugs at all. There's a big difference between a magic mushroom experience and going out and getting hammered on alcohol or drugs that yeah, these planets are medicine. So I'm you know, we we actually in in my circles, we don't really even call them drugs. Too much. You don't even like that word, do you? I don't mind. The word at all. But I know a lot of people are resistant to it. I mean, for me words are just you know, you give were the power that it has the word drug doesn't really bother me. But indifference do of many people that do have a problem with it. I use words like 'Pharmacon or plant medicine at plans, and those are actually more accurate descriptions of things like let's say Iowa ska magic mushrooms cactus peyote, and the San Pedro spirit cleanser spirit fungi are really miraculous. Isn't it? True that the psychedelic Delic world is really misunderstood by most people. Yeah. But that's getting a lot better. The the more scientists come forward saying that hey, these are really medicines. I mean, the good news Georgia's that all of the evidence. I mean, all of it is on my side as far as saying that psychedelics far from damaging the body actually can really complement a healthy lifestyle. And and these are studies coming from top universities like UCLA Johns Hopkins. Harvard NYU just did a study on on with cancer patients, and you know, the end of end of life, you know, traumas and dealing with that and depression that comes with it to really great success. So, you know, I can't stress enough that really all the signs all the science is on my side and away from the propaganda, and we're actually seeing a turnover now I. Leave the FDA just approved suicide and mushrooms studies to treat depression and post traumatic stress disorder. It's better than some of the other stuff. They've been putting out it's way better than the other stuff. They're putting out there there little to no side effects on at least know really hardcore side effects to using suicide and mushrooms. Unlike the the the pharmaceuticals that, you know, are I think sometimes willy nilly just kinda dished out to people which I don't think is really good for society. How did you go? No. Go ahead. Oh, I just I just feel like when you when you weigh the pros and cons of these plant medicines versus pharmaceuticals. I mean, it kind of becomes a no brainer has so which are really helping people in which are, you know, not so much helping people how did shamans no all this without any technology. Well, that's a great question. You know, we have no idea, it seems like it was just a whole lot of trial and error in in the ancient world, and just you know, generation after generation of just seeing what works seeing what did and seen what prayers and aberrations in conjunction with this or that spirit plant. What worked what didn't and these traditions were eventually passed down throughout the centuries? And that's actually what my book psychedelic mystery traditions is all about it's tracing that ancient source of psychedelic and entheogen accuse which goes all the way back to the earliest, you know, whispers of human civilization. I might add all the way up to the. Present day. Tell me about these magical appointments, and what their use might be sure. So the the magical Whiteman popularly called flying in our day, these were MTO genyk appointments used by medieval wise, women to communicate with their fertility goddesses these were by and large fertility goddess worshippers, this was a survival of pagan ideas into Christian Europe, and they would use these these statements in what I call going back to the thea- gyms, some the thea- genyk reasons Assam, the thea- Jin is generating the goddesses are God's if your sleep. So these these appointments were made of things like Mandrake and being Bella, Donna, very powerful soporific alkaloids that will knock you into a very lucid and vivid dream state. So I I mean, I've used Mandrake and and being myself, I use them quite often. And they work. You just have to be very careful with them because you know, they are poisons than dose. Well, we'll definitely kill you. So I would recommend your listeners. Stay away from Seoul, Mesa's plans like Mandrake head try and kids. Don't do this at home. Yeah. Stick to the safe illegal stuff like mushrooms. Stay with us. We're gonna come back in a moment and talk more about witchcraft Thomas hats is with us.
