H. A. T. H. L. O. N. podcast on spotify you can also learn more at pop side Dot com a federal United States government so he used a box cutter to remove these labels which so this hips Guy Right Jonathan hips thirty four years old from Warner robins Georgia he was found guilty in August catches you up on the latest Tech News through Games Trivia and usually friendly competitions each episode starts with decathlon decathlon featuring ten dead we need these parts to come from the United States so according to investigation by NASA officer also the Orion spacecraft in Orion is the crew capsule that sits on top of the SOS rocket very important people asa will be using it's a gigantic rocket but NASA will be using this to send people to the moon and eventually said indicated the origin of the rods then he shipped the rods to Kennedy Space Center with a certificate indicating they met all Spector General in the Air Force Office of Special Investigations Thirty four year old Jonathan hips of Warner robins Georgia was an employee falsified to origin the hardware that he was using to the United States so let me back up and tell you about that Ram is the Moon Program that they're working on and a former NASA contractor was found guilty of fraud and other chargers after he of mail fraud concealment of material facts from Federal Agency in providing false documents to a federal agency he is lives are at stake and these rods these steel rods were contracted to be required to come from hand during that procurement process he didn't get them from the United States like he was supposed to and these contracts are very seriously working with the aces a penalty of forty years in federal prison during his sentencing hearing on December fourth of this year and he'll know acid requirements I gotta tell you real quick about audible you can go into the show notes click the link in you get two free audience after and it was related to the SIS space launch system now the the if you're not familiar is what these same people and supplies to Mars and the US is one of the most important programs that NASA has right now the art of is the United States to the origin has to be from the United States investigators said that hips obtain these rods from India instead the show notes the Space News Pot is brought to you by the tech team from the Popular Science magazine decathlon is a Tech News podcast with a twist a weekly podcast official stat industry excuse me twenty fourteen which was a company that helped provide steel rods for the S. L. S. rocket and Oh is fate later this year like I said so why is it important to get all of your parts from where NASA sets wide not just go to the lowest bidder why not just go to India get these parts and be done with it you know why was he in trouble each deal and there's people's lives on the line and if one of these pieces what are these rods were to be inspected again looks check it out it's really awesome great partner I've been with him for a while now and listen to audio books every night before I go to sleep in calms me down check it out the Lincoln the federal contract like this you're working with very strict guidelines and the thing about these big contracts with NASA the ESA is a huge by NASA employees they would have to ask where these routes came from they'd have to basically go through a whole red tape process to figure out what's wrong with them and how to replace them and how to fix them etc now if these rods weren't manufactured in the United States like they were supposed to be while there's no way for NASA to check up on the manufacturer of these rods there is no way to double check triple got manufactured and up or when they got manufactured in that they got put into the space launch system into the Orion capsule and something went horribly wrong check this one NASA does they make sure everything's in line because there's been so many disasters in NASA history that they have to make sure that all the pieces no one's accountable right the manufacturers accountable there in India so that's why it's important you know they're still held accountable of the puzzle are in place before they go forward with building the Orion spacecraft and the S. L. S. if what are these rods was faulty before they actually but it's harder for NASA to go after them so to speak and he got people's lives on the line man just do the right thing get them from the United States why were you from the special agent in charge the central field office John Corby I said the NASA Office of Inspector General will continue to aggressively investigate corners. Don't get it don't understand it people like to do that and I don't get especially with a contract with NASA that's a huge deal so this comes Conduct will not be tolerated and he said the NASA g applause the efforts of the entire investigative in prosecution team during this investigation those who undermine a defraud NASA efforts to build the LS launch vehicle and it systems this jury verdict serves as a staunch reminder that such contact a big going to the moon and twenty twenty four and they need all this stuff to be in line and they needed to all be properly vetted before it actually gets put together when we look forward to our continued cooperation with our law enforcement partners in the pursuit of justice so SOS rocket it's got they are super important to humanity so my friends thank you for listening to True Crime Nasa Not really thank you for listening to the Space News the eighth tonight at eight o'clock there's going to be an amazing SPACEX announcement so get ready for more information about that in the coming Oh good job investigators figuring out what the heck happened here because these rods could possibly be dangerous so save some lives you know and also if you're time NASA okay it's not a true crime podcast but there was some stuff that happened with the contract actor for NASA do it the right way do what they want do what they what they contractor to do and gave you all those millions of dollars to do because that's the only way to do it because it is NASA is Pod I appreciate it thank you to my sponsors audible etc Thank you so much for taking the time out of your day to spend here with me a space news pilot

toronto for the six degrees conference giving the keynote and then finally on the twenty ninth i'll be main the main library association and there will be some public events associated with that for non librarian says well at the local libraries as you might expect these other news that i thought i would mention is that i am working on a new short story for slate magazine and ask you which is called affording says and it's for their critical series of science fiction stories about why so today i'm gonna reto from locust column from may called steering with the windshield wipers and it's part of a wider set of works i've been doing lately on anti trust competition monopoly big tech and what we have to fear from a dominant big tech and what we should do to forestall those bad consequences and so here we go steering with the windshield wipers from the may twenty nineteen issue of locus magazine take off your glasses first sec year locus readers so i'm guessing that you like me are currently wearing prescription eyewear and have a look at the manufacturers name on the temples specifically check to see if they were made by armani brooks brothers burglary chanel coach can why don't change ivana michael kors oakley all of her people's pursell polo ralph lauren rayban tiffany valentino vogue versace if so guess what they actually came from one company called bucks artika who also owns sunglass hut lenscrafters prohibition sears optical entered optical as well let's see i ensure i'm at vision care an esl are the world's largest manufacturer of contact lenses looks out take us growth is a story about power leading to more power when companies like oakley resistant looks i think has advances look so ticket refuse to carry them in stores depriving number sales until their profits and share prices dropped so low that looks artika could scoop them up for pennies the bigger luxottica got these you're it was for them to apply this kind of strong arm bottom line if you bought your glasses from any of the major chain retailers chances chances are the glasses handle lenses were made by the same company that owned the retailer and if you bought your glasses through you're independent optometrist chances are those last is also came from that retailer oh and the markup that retailer charges up one thousand percent and climbing find me how did this happen it wasn't an accident starting in the nineteen seventies a fabulous name robert bork began to push an alternate history of what the sherman act and other anti trust laws were intended to do bork invented imaginary evidence that the authors of these laws had never intended to prevent monopolies and it only been animated by consumer welfare ensuring that one monopolies occurred the new robber barons limited themselves just squeezing their suppliers and competitors well delivering lower prices to their customers for project coincided with the kind of decadent moment in anti trust enforcement went over zealous prosecutors had created in incoherent mass notoriously the southern california grocers vons was blocked from acquiring its competitor shopping bag food stores because the new firm control a whopping eight percent of the grocery market this kind of over enforcement brought the whole anti trust project into disrepute back what's more books were coincide of what's important shift in the distribution of wealth the two world wars destroyed vast amounts of wealth and since rich people own busted the wealth they had suffered the greatest losses when world war two ended the world's wealth was more equally distributed then had been in centuries and the ability of the rich the influence policy with at its lowest ebb this oligarch take nater opened up the breathing space for the creation of the welfare state the gi bill expansions of public education in public services increased unionization end not coincidentally the longest run of growth and prosperity says the country has ever seen but as the french economists tomorrow catty famously observed in his twenty fifteen capital in the twenty first century even fastest growing economy grows slower than average rate of return on wealth which means that people who get richest from markets are the people who have money to begin west not the people who's working creativity creates a growth that accounts for this wealth this rich get richer phenomenon meant that by the time burke was working the share of wealth in the hands of the richest ten percent of the world's had crossed a critical threshold leaving them with enough extra cash just start buying policies that would make them even richer as part of that book of course able to raise stupendous amounts of money to promote his alternate history of anti trust eventually transforming the world of antitrust enforcement so that consumer welfare was the only thing judges really cared about this same phenomenon of wealth accumulation that produced a budget reports backers also provided a financial based just support ronald reagan's campaign and ronald reagan through a lot of gasoline on the inequality bonfire and even tried to get board seat on the supreme court so that was too much for the senate who rejected him after grilling him his opposition to voting rights has believe me unchecked power of the presidency and his roller richard nixon's crimes forks legacy is with us today after nearly two generations of anti trust malpractice and which companies were allowed to grow by gobbling up their small competitors are merging with their largest ones we're living through a new gilded age in which trusts are on the rise financials dominated by a handful of giant banks liquor and beer dominated by a pair of giants to cable telecoms shipping thing oil book selling movie theaters and of course internet and media media has got a bad case of over concentration blues we've got five major movie studios is i write this but by the time you're rita there will be for because disney willow swallowed fox for is also the number of major music recordings companies publishing famously had the big five but it might be for soon as a rumor has it that cbs will devasta simon and schuster simon and schuster champion cbs says former ceo les moonves who is ousted enemy to scandal and harper collins will buy it up concentration leads to all kinds of bad things take facebook a company whose day is long past people fucking hate facebook which is why fifteen million people left the service in twenty eighteen primarily fifteen to thirty four year olds way out from twenty sixteen and where did most of those people go instagram which was acquired by facebook in twenty twelve facebook's privacy problem and we should regulate late to fix it but the reality is that forced the longest people who care about facebook's privacy dumpster fire end up on another facebook onsite facebook will slow walk any kind of privacy protections which brings me the copyright as i typed these words european union is two weeks away from the final vote on his new copyright directive who's odious article thirteen attempts to get artist paid more by holding online services libel if their users post infringing materials up ending the current safe harbor a system that freeze online services from an obligation to hold every tweet facebook update photo video minecraft skin another potentially infringing post and telecom be assessed by a copyright attorney ascertain it's legal status instead platforms will have the license the entire catalogs a big rightfielder groups the big four or five publishers studios and labels and block anything that might be unlicensed using automated filters this is a plan of almost unfathomable foolishness in the first instance it will not actually stop infringement filters are imperfect and prone to catching false positives including dreadful scenarios like blocking a photo of police brutality a demonstration because the filter detects copyrighted stock photo in a bus at in the background or blocking your video of your child's first steps because there's some distant copyrighted music playing at the time there also cheap and easy to subvert because attackers can create an infinite number of accounts and try various tactics to evade the filters for free until they find a blind spot and then exploited it will then filters are so prone to abuse any inconvenient expression can be blocked by claiming it is a copyrighted work to say nothing of the fraudsters who claiming artists worked before the artist gets to it and diversity artist ad revenue or licensing licensing fees to themselves as the saying goes try anything to earn a living as an artist but if you're a business model involves censorship you were on the wrong side of arts and the wrong side of history but that's just starters after all they artist whose interests we're proposing to protect with article thirteen are overwhelmingly represented by giant media companies the big force of pros moving images and sounds and even if the copyright directive enriches these massive multi national corporations none of that windfall will reach artistes when was the last time universal ended and upbeat earnings call by announcing that it's recor quarterly earnings men said it was going up it's royalty rates any new revenues generated by the directive will go to the shareholders and executive bonuses is nazi artistic sellers in media's buyer's market for work it's all about competition when media companies don't have to compete for artist copyright artist make less money for those copyrights more competition article thirteen role in the copyright directive will be fantastically expensive to comply west youtuber content tidy a toy version of the filters envisioned by the directive cost one hundred million dollars to create and maintain and they're about five companies that can afford fordham all based in the usa they used proposal would wipe out entire you tech sector at the stroke of a pen ten years from now if the directive passes google and facebook and apple and amazon and twitter will only have grown larger without the periodic inconvenience of having to strong arm up european competitor out of existence if you think gafa are a pita in twenty nineteen giving a decade with an entire continent and devour without constrain of competitors and watch out hard to negotiate west they become a lack of competition rewards bullies and police have insatiable appetite if you're kidding starving because they keep getting beaten up for their lunch money you can solve the problem by giving them more lunch money the police will take that money to likewise in the wildly unequal barky an inferno we all inhabit giving artists more copyright will just enrich the companies that control the markets we sell our works into the media companies who will demand that we sign over those rights as a condition of their patrons turnage of course these companies will subsequently be mentos inexpert operated by the internet distribution companies and while the media companies are reluctant to share their bounties without artist they were lively expect us to share their pain a bad quarter often means cancel projects late payments and lower advances and yet when a lack of competition creates inequalities we do not buying large reach for pro competitive answers we are the fallen descendants of a lost civilization destroyed by robert bork in the nineteen seventies and we have forgotten that once we had a mighty to offer correcting are problems in the form of pro competitive anti trust enforcement the power the block mergers to break up conglomerates to regulate anticompetitive of conduct in the marketplace think of it this way in the nineteen eighties robert bork tore the steering wheel out of this car were all riding in four decades we've been trying to figure out how to steer without the wheel arguing about whether we should use the windshield wipers or try rolling down all the windows enrolling the backup again the copyright directive is like an attempt to improve the wipers africa see by fixing giant ungainly sales to the blades in the hopes that they will produce enough drag to allow us to navigate but just because we know where to find the copyright lover it doesn't follow the yanking on it hard enough will make it through the work of anti trust law eventually you just have to get a new steering wheel which brings me to would be democratic presidential nominee elizabeth warren and disclosure i am a donor to her campaign who has proposed a new anti trust regime aimed at big tech which would break up the tech monopolies a plan that i have nothing but admiration for warren's plan has some odd rough edges though in proposing posing to break up big tech but not big content warren creates a situation in which some zeros might be moved from google's balance sheet to universals but this is unlikely to put in extra time in the pockets of artists win big tech and big content sit down to making me a lot artists doesn't matter any of us which one gets the bigger piece more worrying lee is a seemingly thrown away clause at the end of warren's announcement we must help america's content creators from local newspapers and national magazine seems to comedians and musicians to keep more of the value their content generates rather than seeing scooped up by companies like google and facebook this phrasing is lifted virtually verbatim from it you parliament's legislative committee from who's fetid loins the copyright directive an article thirteen spraying one companies got very big we have a choice either we cut them down to size or we impose rules on them to make the marginally safer just share the planet west for example when eighteen she ruled america exempted from anti trust enforcement allowed to maintain an absolute monopoly on telecom service as well is a monopoly on phones in answering machine and anything else you might plug into the bell system in return eighteen she were charged with helping police and emergency services and with maintaining investment in its service they obligations and the monopoly went hand in hand if eighteen to split into smaller pieces it would no longer have the capacity demanded his duties to law enforcement and disaster disaster management nor its duty to invest in infrastructure anytime anyone proposed breaking up eighteen t they would point this out and the proposal would die in eighteen tease grip would tighten the break up of eighteen t a nineteen eighty two was the last spasm of real american antitrust enforcement before robert bork and ronald reagan killed it killing eighteen t allowed for the growth of internet service providers and hence the internet which had been crushed under eighteen tease wait for decades breaking up eighteen t was good policy even if it meant losing some of those public duties we had deputized at west if we appoint tech giants with unimaginably expensive civic duty of policing all online speech for copyright infringement or extremism or what have you that will make it impossible to on big and big tech we won't be able to strengthen a piece of small after manage because those pieces won't be able to manage their public duties i hope foreign will come to understand this we need trust busting and not just to protect pr firm are i say to her i phones monopolies are strangling the possibility of a pluralistic egalitarian society well thank you very much i hope you enjoyed that

begin to shine to the world and when you were expressing your spiritual core values news you will discover a compass you you will discover accomplice for life it will give you the direction of your personal path in life plus a path that's meaningful for you you will never get the feeling of being lost in life ever again now maybe you might get sidetracked but never lost you will never get lost again once you establish this core these core values even when you get sidetracked it will be quite easy to get back on course with you're spiritual core values in place so knowing who you are and what you stand for in life give you an unprecedented clarity of vision own how to make choices that have both purpose and meaning for instance you have to decide between a career with lots of amenities but totally an opposition which you're spiritual core values which will make you feel miserable all the time or you have a choice civil less flashy path which is in line with their spiritual core values and will give you continuous energy and satisfaction now there's no moral judgment on this there's consequences so when you're making these decisions does it aligned with your core values is it really really what gives you that surge of energy is at what motivates you is it what gets you up early in the morning get you going is what keeps you going throughout the day that's what you need to ask yourself because if you make choices because it's flashy ori it involves a lot of money you know what don't worry about the money when you're making choices because money will always come you're needs will always be met the universe has your back the universe is gonna take care of you source energy will never let you be without so think about it when you're having to make those decisions in you know today we may ask ourselves you know are we may even say i have wealth power and prestige but why don't i feel satisfied why does my life have no meaning why why does everything sucks well maybe it's because you've made their own choices but the good news is that it's never too late to start making the right choices to get your life back on track with your spiritual core values now some of us may even ask ourselves you know i i pour i have no prestige i have no notoriety i have no i have nothing and i'm never satisfied and why does my life have no meaning why is everything suck well it's because of the choices that we may but again the good news is that it's never too late to start making the right choices to get your life back on track with your spiritual core values when you start doing this making the right choices and staying focused on what matters you start manifesting who you really are in this world been something wonderful end also could be terrifying will start the happen people that you knew for years will start to avoid you leave you and that's okay only other hand new and close friends will start to appear from nowhere in this begins the happen because you began to shine your spiritual core values like a beacon your light shot begins just shot you become the light of the world they begin to warm have what you have and the ones that are drawn to the light will always be drawn to you so at this point you're probably asking yourself how do i find my spiritual core values well let's talk about it here for a minute one of the easiest ways an it's probably challenging for a lot of us defined are spiritual core values is you know right down your epitaph use your epitaph you know you know it's not that more but don't think of it that way no think of it at all like that you'll understand why i in and i noticed suggesting it's it's a bit crazy but i assure you that it works it'll help you establish your core values one thing that the shadow of death creates in is in general a more intense and clear perspective about life many people confronted with ideal of death are forced to acknowledge what his rayleigh what the relevant things they did or did not do in their life and no it's not that you're gonna die today tomorrow in fifty years here's a but it gets us thinking what do we want to be known for what what is are legacy that we wanna leave behind what's what is your legacy what's you're legacy it doesn't matter if you're young or old the question is how are you going to use the time that you have left in you may think you have fifty years laugh you may have only two years left whatever it is what are you going to do what legacy are you going to leave what how do you want people to remember you and all you have to do is to do is decide if what you're gonna do with the time you have left what matters here is time well spent with purpose expressing your inner most so mode is it makes life worth living so imagine what you would like to be written on your tombstone when you were doing this i want you to write it down so when you're doing this come up with the things that are meaningful to you in right from your heart let's be honest about this right down what your imaginary maybe it's not imaginary maybe it's what you really want to say on your tombstone when you do die what will it reid and the best way to the dinner fire core values is to look at how you act and behave actions and behaviors that energize you that create enthusiasm in you that actively motivates you are definitely your core values so now that you've written him down written down what you want on your tombstone you've written you're epitaph i want you to reid each sentence that you've that you've written so if you wrote something like pioneer adventure you're talking about the spiritual core value of freedom another example could be eight kerry and dedicated person well you're talking about love those core values love is a core value freedom is a core value de idea is to extract from each sentence of you're app tap your spiritual spiritual core values that are behind it so some of the examples examples of core values are kindness loyal wellness willingness freedom love beauty intimacy gratitude authenticity oneness this integrity curiosity love freedom so that just gives you a few so if any of those are that you have written in you're sentences for you're epitaph i want take three four five maybe even six of a of this richer core values that you have extracted from those sentences an order them in terms of importance to you and from you're scored spiritual core values you can extract personal objective that makes sense to you and achieve them in a way that is quicker and easier for instance if one of your spiritual core values is health you might connected to weight loss nutrition going to the gym exercising running eating right so the idea behind this is always to connect sure objective to you're spiritual core values this way you always have energy to achieve them feel that you have a purpose a direction and that there is a reason for you to do that conveniently if you derail you could always come back don't worry because your spiritual core values will always be present in you spiritual core values are not dependent on external circumstances is for instance no matter where you are you confused to express your spiritual core values imagine that you're spiritual core values is kindness you could be konda someone you meet on the street you could be kind to yourself you could be kind to a friend you could be kind to the bus driver you could be kind to the to the person taking your order at the restaurant a you could be kind to a homeless person by being kind you choose just a smile or maybe they help someone across the street or dick area bag maybe you can donate money for a project or give food to the hungry or just offering a kind word it's up to you to choose how you would like to be kind but in this case in the case of health you can choose to take the stairs instead of the ride the elevator you could walk instead of taking the bus instead of eating tone to go nuts you could eat one or maybe you can decide to eat vegetables or fruit again it's up to you to choose how to express your spiritual core values when you express your values your expressing your most spiritual side and the same time you feel energized and connected with yourself and with others spiritual core values are they energetic fire that fuels you to reach your highest purpose and you're best meaningful living spiritual core values are are important to motivate you and give you that everlasting energy to improve end to allow your light shine to allow your spiritual inner core light shine you need spiritual core values to fuel and achieve valuable and meaningful goals in you're live last but not least how you can translate you're goals into personal habits that will be easy to do on a daily basis yes there's there's no end to expressing their spiritual core values for instance you can you can travel east but you will never reach east you just continue to travel ease in the same way you can express you're spiritual core values of kindness and love but you will never reach the kindness although you will get better at being tied you will get better at being in expressing love so the more you express one of your spiritual core values any of your spiritual core values the more you will become that value without ever reaching it completely and we will talk about that later about never be in reaching it completely but you're so mission is your reason for being you're you're life purpose it you're calling in life who you feel called to be what you feel called to be mission is an energy that flows through you it drives you it's a voice it's a passion that you cannot ignore it's what you know in your heart you must lives if you are to experience inner peace and harmony goals are quite different from spiritual core values goals by default are meant to be reached the more time an effort used been working on you're goes the closer you will you become closer you'll be to reach them a goal is a desired result or possible outcome that person plans to commit to achieve maybe it's within a a a finite time by setting deadlines so imagine that you're goal is didn't into is to improve your self esteem end that might be connected with the spiritual core values of love and put that into practice you might have one of several goes to implement in achieve like maybe eating healthy food taking care of your body by exercising exercising set in healthy boundaries finding ways to express yourself and positive in creative ways never forget that you need to connect you're goals to you're spiritual core values in order to never lose steam so so maybe you're asking after this you have to decide win and for how long well the answer this question you need a tool and that tool is called a calendar ha ha imagine that you decide to go to the gym three times a week i'm using the gym but it could be anything maybe you want to get out of the house more maybe you want to do something for yourselves put it on the calendar make plans set a schedule i'm gonna walk for twenty minutes a day monday wednesday and friday i'm gonna go to the gym for an hour a day monday day wednesday and friday it put it on the calendar and do it for that length of time if you feel like going well let me tell you this my experiences if you set a time limit on it gopher that time if it's twenty minutes stop at twenty minutes do that multiple times and then as you go over you can now set a new goal for thirty minutes forty five minutes to an hour but less reach are goals and maintain them for a period of and then you could increase it but whatever is in your life maybe you wanna spend more time with your family will schedule and outing at times and maybe go to the movies together or go to the park together maybe the going a picnic or horseback ride whatever it is scheduled that so that you can begin to develop that habit 'em so put it on the calendar there other things you need to pot on the counter and i talked about it the duration if the time that you're gonna spend doing it so if you're going to the gym for three months six months or a full year you could also decide the duration will depend on reaching may be certain a weight loss or for a certain look that you're looking for you know and building muscles or whatever it may be and you can use this you you can apply this anything in your life so the habits are are you a friend a habit a good habit is a good friend in in habits have wonderful characteristics of course it's the good ones of course so you don't think about them you don't have to decide to do them you are pulled to do them each is automatic it's a part of you're being it's a part of you're essence so they keep you going even if motivation is not present habits are wonderful to make you reach longterm goals you don't in so let me give you an example imagine that you have a goal of maybe writing a book you set the deadline in a year's time so you will have three hundred sixty five days to write you decide the right half a page h per day which is around two hundred and fifty words a day and it will take you know more than fifteen minutes a day while you commute you could do this by the end of the year you will have your book with a hundred and eighty two pages long all this just spending fifteen minutes a day right think about it when you schedule your time out like this when you think this way you can accomplish so much maybe instead of a book imagine that one of your spiritual core values is health and you're goal is to lower you're you're anxious behavior by meditating fifteen minutes a day during a period of three months and then you evaluate the results after that you could do that while you're on the bus the train when you're driving down the highway or even when you're standing in line at the supermarket it's mindful meditation is just being aware of you're breathing being present in the moment so as you as four goals you need a calendar for habits they're wonderful apps in one of the apps is called if you use android phone the app is habits and if you use i phone one of the apps is momentum you could download these free and of course if you don't wanna do it the electronic way you could just curious mono book look around and you can jot down in the notebook religiously note down the frequency of you're habits daily because only by tracking what you do the simplest way possible is you can track your progress and make adjustments if you don't create habits you have to rely on hardcore willpower and sometimes that's difficult life just gets in their way and you we just don't have the willpower to keep pushing known but when becomes a habit it's something that just automatically happens so so remember you're tools spiritual core values 'em so we're goals you're gonna use a calendar and with habits you're gonna used the tracker so using user android phone and use a the app called habits or if you have i phone you used momentum end with this it will help you become a better person so the oh let's see where we hear 'em so the full picture can be summarize like this first year finder spiritual core values then valuable goals that will become habits so spiritual core values goals and then habits and so you have your values you're go up so so values is that could a that involves your heart your emotions your meaning your belief system you're goals are part of you're mine it's part of setting a setting goals scheduling its purpose and you're you're habits are what you do it you're actions so mayor choices reflects you're hopes and not you're fears so let's go this week and work on are spiritual core values 'cause i can assure you once you know what your core values are and it could be three four five six core values that you that really define who you are they really energize you motivate you and make you happy and like i said it's those values that gets you up in the morning get you going because of what you love to do and when you start discovering your core values

catalogue music but it's not just the sale that has her upset if the buyer scooter brought the high profile manager behind artists like justin bieber arianna ground day you had one konya west the bad blood singer calling it my worst case scenario lasting braun who she alleges publicly bullied her along with fever end wet justice weekend uber's announced that braun acquired her formerly big machine which only so many of her deeply personal reporting for three hundred million dollars in a passionate an unfiltered tumbler post swift swift writing my musical legacy is about to lie in the hands of someone who tried to dismantle it swift emotional method spotlighting the debate about whether or not artist should own the rights to their music something legends like french answer paul mccartney have hopelessly grappled with an while the pop print says is no stranger when it comes to the controversy her latest statement has ignited yet another public feud this time with one of the music industry most powerful players this happens and all the time but because of taylor's platform in her very heartfelt take on the situation you know she's raising her hands and saying this is messed up but both lawrence taylor learn was taylor the fresh face teen mets got four chetta who would sign her adjust fourteen years old is one of the first artists for his new label big machine record's big machine rutgers became a giant almost immediately boosted taylor just starting out taylor spoke to abc's as a freshman in high school when i go through something i have to write a song about it i have to write a column about it it was you're drops on my guitar that burden help make her a household name as through the years country pop anthem like our song love story became the soundtrack of the teenage experience now worth more than a reported three hundred million dollars she would go on to release five more albums albums with big machine until esteemed amicably parting ways with the label last november signing with the republic record's and universal music group writing on instagram it's also incredibly exciting to know that our own all of my master recordings means that i make from now one but to really understand the background here let's roll wind event it's two thousand nine taylor still country konya is married to a car dashing to the now infamous moment at the b m eight you let you finish your best videos of all time and that's a celebrity cutest born fast forward to twenty sixteen audience at the time wrapped by bron releases the song famous out by noted on my on my shortly after konya his wife kim post this video to snapchat which seems like a conversation between her husband end the pop star keeping up with the kardashians jars speaking out on her show defending patio yeah i'm just like speaking the truth he called her coach at the time i'm swift fired back on instagram writing i was never given the full story or played any part of the song going on to say i would very much like to be excluded from this narrative one that i have never asked to be a part of since two thousand nine scooter braun and taylor have a history justin bieber who scooter braun manages open for taylor a few times and things were all good until the feud between konya west came car dashing against taylor swift a couple of years ago which is really a pretty ugly feud after the news of the sale broke swift writing all i could think about was the incessant manipulative bullying i've received at his hands for years like when kim car dashing an orchestrated in illegally recorded snippet of a phone call to be leaked and then scooter got his to clients together to bully me online about it swept referring to this photo abroad west end bieber but the sorry singer posted with the caption taylor swift what up adding this is scooter braun bully me when i was at my lowest point he's about to own all the music i ever made another point of contention the song starts playing she wasn't given the opportunity to buy her music from big machine record's but scott porsche who sold the label gibran says that's not the case slamming back and i posted his own writing taylor had every chance in the world own not just her master recordings but every video photograph everything thing associated to her career she chose to leave and refuting swift claims that she was blindsided by the deal stadi that he personally texted swift the night before two and former prior to the story breaking it's a very hot market get to be buying and selling music asset so usually it's a business decision anes gay buyers sellers season opportunity and goes after it the deal and the controversy leading the entertainment industry down the middle coming gibran defense bieber himself apologizing displays for that pose but adding in part scooter and has had your back since the days you graciously let me open up for you for you to take it the social media and get people to hate on scooter is in fair adding it is my captioning posted that broad told me not to joke like that sources close to the bronze they know willing happen perhaps the detail it's most confusing demanding is that an artist is biggest swift doesn't own the rights to her masters in eight recor deal it's actually standard for the record label to own the master recordings because the company is the one putting up the money for that music to be recorded and promoted moated so it's actually the exception when the artist owns the recordings and then licenses them to the label what is more common is that sometimes artists will be able to buy back their masters from directly like label artist on the foul loves singer according to billboard wired the rights to her master's from dead end the late nipsy hustle wrapped about music ownership his album victory lack ma even music legends like paul mccartney and print publicly thought the rights to their music back in the nineties the kissing her adamantly fought his label for control of his music at times even writing slave on the side of his face telling rolling stone if you don't own your masters your master owns view in a lotta

I'm Amy Goodman with Park crecy now dot Org essentially distills to the same thing which is Mr Zuckerberg you've built one of the most successful businesses in American history but it enormous cost to me facebook is like the oil companies of the fifties it's artificially profitable because it pours waste products given five minutes to question Mark Zuckerberg what would you ask what would you advise these Congress members ask marks climate change if we wanna fix gun violence or and the mania of antitax we're GonNa have to do in violence or white supremacy or any immigrant on every one of these issues the harmful side of the argument and but Elsie tweeted hypothetically if you were say a member of Congress sitting on the Financial Services Committee with an ASC tweet that's right Alexandra Cossio Cortes who I saw this weekend at the largest presidential primary rally so far level of government in the United States and elsewhere needs to hold Internet platforms accountable because what they're creating are toxic digital spills the thing about Internet platforms and that is the common issue affecting politics across all of America and let's understand this is not the gas stations would pour oil into the sewer and the destruction to our public health into our environment was enormous and eventually and they're doing enormous harm to society and in financial services in my mind there questioned today relates to a crypto currency there there's no way in God's green our facebook should be allowed to do that but not just facebook no corporation should be allowed to create a currency that competes with the it feels like think about it in the fifties chemical companies would pour mercury into freshwater mining companies would leave the residue wherever it fell dollar that's just not in the national interest in fact you mentioned a moment ago Greta Tonsberg if I can just pivot slightly there's a point I would love to make are it was the Bernie's back rally it was over twenty six thousand people in Queens Bridge New York it was rather astounding to say the least an accident this stuff is not about the freedom of speech or freedom of expression it's about the fact that these companies amplify hates came out with her endorsement forum Michael Moore also endorsed him the Academy Award Winning Filmmaker The San Juan Mayor Carmen you lean crews also endorsed amplify -cation because of Internet platforms the gives them more political power than their numbers should allow and if we want to Edberg the man you knew very well you invested in early on so I think the issue for all members of Congress irrespective of what committee woke up and realized that companies should be responsible for all this and I believe that every member of Congress in fact everyone in every one that is denying climate change or promoting anti VACs or promoting gun violence or white supremacy in each case that side gets beach disinformation conspiracy theories because that stuff is just more profitable for them and in my mind they they should know no more all of the viewers which is if you look at the biggest issues we face as a country whether it's climate change whether it's anti VACs whether it is gone will be allowed to do that capital company should be allowed to poor mercury into freshwater so let me ask you about some of what you wrote be a technology with persuasive power as users felt obligated to react or reciprocate when informed they'd been tagged a few months photographs they did it with a new wrinkle tagging the people in the photo that helped to define facebook's approach to engagement tagging proved watching this book for key moments in history facebook one that stands out occurred months before I got involved in the fall of two thousand five facebook gave users the ability to upload I mean all of these issues you raise but you write about changes that grew the social network into the giant it is today say in recent L. Address keep talking about newsfeed and the significance of photographs when it comes for example to the issue of privacy and what Mark Zuckerberg understood one of the world on one network you know had elements in it of virtue you could see that there were cases as with after my first meeting with Zak facebook made to huge changes at launch news feed and it opened itself up to anyone over the age of thirteen with a valid email scrolling and scrolling and scrolling and by eliminating the friction he eliminated essentially the opportunity for people to adapt to what he was so I think that Zack had a clear understanding of these issues that I gave them credit for it the time his notion of collecting every doing he eliminated really opportunities for creativity for contemplation and debate and in doing so he really has undermined the the women's March are black lives matter or the march for our lives where you could you use a network like that to organize people for good the problem social fabric of the country and it started so innocently photo tagging doesn't seem like a big deal but it does trigger this they own us and then after that it's about the manipulation and amplification of hostile voices in order to keep this whole thing moving and I and it's there to provoke you and it provokes you enough to create a habit and for most of us have it becomes an addiction and I because for most of us that's the range right we nobody waits until after they're done and so at the end of the day once they have us addicted hi this is the way mark did it the way he did all of these things was to eliminate friction his notion was he didn't want people thinking about posts he just won the for social reciprocity which is essentially involuntary in us and it becomes a habit they send you a notification you think the notifications personal it's from an a notable for them and it's started innocently and it happened like a frog in water coming to a boil right we just didn't notice what was going on sates in addiction because ask yourself this I mean Amy Wendy a check your smartphone first thing in the morning is it before up or while you're P control a lot and I don't WanNa be you know the the negative person here because at the end of the day it's not about technology there's nothing we actually have things in common that meeting face to face making eye contact is actually really valuable and that we shouldn't allow technology a power so Shana Zubov in my opinion deserves a Nobel Prize and economics. I believe her book is the most important book on economics that I've read relation and it's got to be antitrust for competitive reasons and then you have to eliminate this massive market and people's most intimate private data Microsoft trying to do it with artificial intelligence and because there are no rules there's nobody protecting us and I think it's our job I mean these companies act as though their doctors and when the Doctor Inspects your liver that they then own your liver I mean that's ridiculous company any kind of marketing it anymore than you're allowed to make a market in your kidneys or your legs Roger McNamee What's been facebook's role and what Shoshana Zoo else moving quickly and so that that's just built in Google goals are different than ours and the the central problem was surveillance valence capitalism is really about looking at the world and realizing that there's data everywhere and that if you captured all of it if you captured all the it's to keep the traffic moving smoothly on the whole system in order to do that some of the time some of the people have to have inferior routes just to keep everybody say stop we need to have a moment of reflection and we need to have a trial we need to put surveillance capitalism on trial and should our Betas should be a human right it should not be there for third parties to treat is an asset and to commercialize they should not touch nobody should be A. B. Since Adam Smith's wealth of nations Karl Marx's dust copied towel I mean it's it's extraordinary and I'm a true believer of Shawna's work so facebook off has called surveillance capitalism I know you've done events with her she's the author of the age of surveillance capitalism the fight for human future at the new frontier was a late adopter google invented surveillance capitalism and so so think of this sir basic notion is you know you go into a product Google maps and you expect it to always give you the fastest route but Google mission and this is not always to give you the fastest capitalism is that it takes away our autonomy it takes away our our self determination and it interferes democracy because for all intents and purpose wrong with social media research the issue is this business model we can have social media we can have all these things we like without all the harm but we have to have you could convert human experience into data Voodoo dolls th allow you both forecast people's behavior and manipulate it and Google strategy was played out over a very long period of time this didn't happen quickly took him at least ten years before they were to get it to work all the way through the system but the says they're now moving from manipulating manipulating whole populations facebook's trying to do that with this crypto currency libra that we're talking about this morning highly controlled authoritarian regime and it's weird because it's authoritarian but under the control of corporation and so in my mind that's and each new thing was more convenient than the last thing and conveniences narcotic we're all hooked to it and the trick here is we now have to recognize that wait a minute rolling short filling behind Senator Warren so I think you know I think Senator Sanders has has come out against face and facebook because facebook take on them whole definitely I mean I worry a lot about how Sarah who's our attorney general in California Kugler is trying to do it was smart cities with they call sidewalk labs Amazon's trying to do it with all of its deals with police departments and other law enforcement agencies assault gun violence anti immigrant any of the other issues facing the country unless we deal with these Internet platforms I and You Know Center so Senator Warren is so right in her approach to this which is we have to restore competitive balance to the economy and then we also have to deal with the problems of surveillance capitalism and she's got both parts of it right and she's the only candidate does so far well how would you assess Bernie Sanders on this issue where do you think he's full ask in what world is this in the interests of the people because it sure doesn't feel that way to me I mean these companies are intensely profitable that's not something you should be permitted without a long public discussion and you know when I look at the candidates you know just because somebody hasn't made this a front some differs from good capitalism the same way that Soviet communism when different front it's it's all about you know a mandated book but I don't think that that he has spent as much time understanding the issue I just don't think it's core to his portfolio of issues I think he recognized but think of all the Hornets come out of it it's just not worth it and we can have the services we like without that business model and that's what the way the world should be and that's what this or something wrong I think I would trust Senator Sanders to bring in people to look into the issue but it's not it's not one his core issues where this is a core part of senator warrants platform and and you know I think fundamentally capitalism is broken now surveillance capitalism okay it's complicated I mean I spent my whole life doing this stuff and look how slow I was to figure it out so I have total empathy and sympathy for anybody who sits around the world so this is what makes me so sad because none of this had to be this way but facebook and Google are so so congress on both sides you see departments of the trump administration engaging in this it isn't something that is inherently a polar center issue doesn't make them a bad person but I do give extra credit to the people who put the most energy into this because I don't think we're going to solve climate change I don't think we Tehran's to avoid getting pushed out of those countries and then they basically spend their time defying democratic countries and challenging to do anything about it the one thing that I think we can see is that this issue is reached a critical mass in the public conversation and particularly in the political conversation where you see member iced issue the way everything else is because it affects it doesn't matter who you are you're being harmed by this and you know you may not recognize it and that's is conspicuously not part of either the facebook or Google cases and I like attorney general very much as a person but they've obviously ski assuming that the users we the people are going to protect them from any kind of accountability my job and I hope the job of everybody watches ethnic cleansing that was done by associates of the government in the Philippines facebook has been used to to ascension powerful to operate and so if you watch what facebook and Google do they do everything in their power to cozy up to internet platforms because that's the fastest way to solve all the other problems in our economy and talk about how facebook remains a threat to the powerless with climate change is that the powerful can use these tools every bit as easily as populace I just got started on this way before anybody else do you think candidates whether presidential or down ballot whatever are concerned about taking it what I'm saying is correct what would you want to do differently if I were right then what you're doing today because if five years it's going to really matter the show is to make sure they don't get away with that strategy because they are a tool of the powerful I mean what we learned in the Arab spring what we've learned if we do something versus doing nothing and I'm hopeful that we're going to make the two thousand twenty election a referendum on Google and facebook in the Rogers is really confusing I go you're right it is but all I ask people to do is engage with me and a thought experiment imagine that book tour that they weren't super happy about it but the reality is that I didn't say anything that I couldn't prove fleet and you know I think the same things going on Senator Harris and I think the same things going on with Mayor Buddha judge and I think there are lots of candidates all over but ubiquitously when you have billions of users you're forced to align with the powerful there's just no way around it because you need the permission of the heard him into not engaging the stuff I mean that takes a lot one of only like three attorneys General you know I'm lucky because I've been successful professionally and so they have nothing I want but boy they've been really the election I'm nine days before the election right so it's a really prime period of time so I have not had a real so and we see this all around the world we see in me on Marin Asia of what the UN called a textbook of cat and they have way more advantage because they have more resources they have more people and money to put it the problem and they're going to do you know that strikes me as just totally inappropriate it may not be illegal but I just I can't imagine that on the authoritativeness of what I was saying and you know what they're entitled to do that right it's a fair country they they they can they can say what they want ah all enabled by these platforms because there's nothing in the platforms to protect us from harm when did you last couldn't have been more friendly but they were also dismissed if they handed me off to one of their colleagues who is a good friend of mine and so I recognize this is right and the and so as a consequence it was mostly a matter of them just using Ad Hominem and you know trying to cast aspersions on my week

helpless at afraid he was at the mercy of bullies lack of self esteem and built the stress of his family's financial hardships disadvantaged children grow up stealing their circumstances beyond their control without the security of a comfortable upbringing evan study concludes run or may not have formed a sense of self efficacy self advocacy isn't individuals belief in their own ability to achieve goals it's possible his murders were motivated by a desire for the control he never felt during his childhood and a lack of confidence that he could achieve anything else in his early early years reynolds family was his only source of comfort when he felt things out of his control but the connection but suddenly severed in his teens one date ronald was out in the front yard playing with a ball by himself he accidentally suddenly threw the ball onto the roof of the small house and climbed up the side to retrieve that she ended up right in front of the window to his mother's bedroom when he looked inside he saw his uncle on top of his mother in the midst of course but we tried ronald could never make himself forget what he saw witnessing incest at such a young age could have had a profound impact on the boys developing sexuality according to a study on sexual development in people from childhood to adulthood abberant erotic development such as paraphernalia can be traced to traumatic family in social experiences the trauma of witnessing such a disturbing act likely reinforced his feelings of helplessness he felt betrayed by the only people he trusted afterward he withdrew into himself for the rest of his life he moved out of his parents home and into a camper trailer they kept in the backyard ronald attended high school school from nineteen seventy eight until nineteen eighty two he was so quiet in class other students hardly remembered him years later glee club was the only place where he came out of his shell rattled loved performing confined to the school chorus but only connected with a few students this way for most of his classmates it wasn't just another reason to bully him they called him short overweight and gay at the time ronald had not yet come out as gay and the constant constant mockery left him with a long lasting shame about his sexuality compounding the shame already imposed on him by uncles and cousins after high school dominate worked a series of odd jobs and lifted transocean life he migrated from his parents house to his own trailer trailer he shared with his sister depending on the year end just find answers he also developed a chronic heart condition in his twenties they gave him a tax of severe chest pains in trouble breathing he relied on his sister care for him when he was sick she was the closest thing he had to confidant even she rarely spent much time with them outside of her home ronald's love life remains a mystery but he did come out gay at some point in his late twenties he was known to be part of the small gay community in home but had trouble making rematch of connections it seemed to him but he didn't fit in anywhere ronald still maintained a love a performance he dressed in drag us patti labelle at the local gay bar for several years in his mid twenties but did not receive rave reviews spectators felt he had no stage presence and made a terrible labelle ronald continued singing anyway he enjoyed being in the limelight it reminded him of his days in the high school glee club applause even if it was sparse provided him with the validation he spent his whole life seeking in nineteen ninetythree when ronald was twenty nine he moved into his own trailer into the joe his neighbors across the road described him as okay they exchange pleasantries with him in the mornings but like most people didn't pay much attention at the time ronald worked as a truck driver froze vending company he spent long nights traveling across the state alone with his thoughts it seem to you had nothing to strive for he had no romantic or financial prospect he didn't even really have friends other than his sister one night while driving through east toma and trying to distract himself from these unpleasant thoughts you spotted a young man walking on the side of the road he had a long drive ahead of him and fought talking to someone would help the time go by faster you decided to see if the mandated by ronald pulled over and struck up a conversation through his cracked window demand was tall and thin and lives down the street during their brief conversation he opened up to ronald about his struggles with drug addiction and homelessness something about the stranger attracted ronald his vulnerability made ronald feel powerful by comparison for once he failed to control but he could tell the men wasn't interested in other men or at least wasn't interested in ronald not knowing what to do but juanita see the stranger again ronald formed a plan instead of hitting on m are asking if you needed a ride ronald offered to sell the stranger some marijuana now they agreed to meet in a couple of days just enough time for ronald to decide what to do next they met on the same road two days later run offered young men a ride to his house we could get the wheat desperate and tired from living on the streets amount agreed even though it seems strange ronald have just brought the weed with him in the first place when they arrived at ronald's house he asked the mantis step into the bathroom so he could grab the drugs he claimed he wanted to make sure his stash remained a secret his new friend obliged ronald had been thinking about this moment nonstop since meeting young man he could hardly believe it was all going as he told as soon as the man stepped into the bathroom ronald grabbed a gun sheet hidden nearby he called demand back out of the bathroom and pointed the gun then he pulled out something else a pair of handcuffs rattled forced the man to lie down on the bed the coffee himself then she undressed assaulted and raped his first victim the book men who raped the psychology of defender explores common motivations from male rate dresses idea of rape as they pseudo sexual rather than a sexual act instead of being an expression of sexual desire the book states that rape generally satisfies primarily non sexual needs the perpetrator like power control an anger as we discussed earlier dominate grew up with their pervasive sense of helplessness even as an adult the feeling never went away and thanks to his belief in high school the helplessness was mixed with shane he felt about a sexual orientation the combination of repressed anger and shame finally erupted ronald took out his rage on the first person he felt he could control young homeless man he found and on the side of the road in nineteen ninetythree after ronald rape the stranger he unlock the handcuffs center released him demand immediately ran to the police but they weren't interested in his story that we had marks on his wrists from the handcuffs they claimed there was no conclusive evidence of rape ronald wasn't investigated or arrested because ronald's crimes began with sexual violence he may have experienced paraphernalia according to the american psychiatric sociation diagnostic manual of mental disorders paris delia is a blanket term referring to when a person's sexual arousal i'm gratification relies on a specific act that is atypical or extreme this act can be harmless but it becomes a disorder when the desire causes distress or harm to somebody else in ronald's case he seems to have enjoyed rendering his victims helpless and causing the pain rental what's temps for a few days following the rate but afterward once you for eric knowing that he broken the law without suffering any repercussions made them feel more powerful than he ever felt before it was everything he fantasize about and he decided decided he needed to do it again but he knew he had to be careful finding these young men on the side of the road had been a fluke he wasn't going to push his luck without another perfect opportunity he worked out a scheme based on his first success he decided he would lure his victims in with promises of drugs are money he would only select individuals he thought would be most vulnerable like the homeless or the drug addicted his caution meant to nearly limiting his opportunity he so he lives in a small town filled with people he knew and grew up west he had to be sure he wasn't recognized ronald wouldn't get the opportunity he hoped for until three years later in the meantime he scraped by as best she could she worked temporary jobs when they were available and tried but failed to make social connections he reached an emotional low point in nineteen ninety four only a year after his initial attack he had taken to go into the single single gay bar around toma more frequently in an attempt to be accepted in the local gay community unfortunately he found little success he was even bully bear which brought back memories of high school ronald remains extremely extremely insecure about his physical appearance and after repeatedly facing rejection at the bar he took to drinking heavily one night in nineteen ninety four renault had too much to drink and drove home he was pulled over by police were speeding be officers smelled liquor on his breath and arrested him for driving while intoxicated his brush with the law convinced him to lay low for over a year by nineteen ninety six when he thirty two he was eager to feel the russian gratification he felt three years prior because all he had thought about since then that year a second man came tibidow police with a story that was nearly identical to that of ronald's first victim like the first man he had also met ronald while walking along a secluded road ronald offered him drugs and he accepted a ride back to ronald trailer there ronald held him at gunpoint restrained strained end raped him the second victim happened to give his report to the same officer who had spoken to the first officer harrelson after the second man confirmed reynolds identity harrelson relented ronald was brought in questioning ronald was nervous and embarrassed throughout the interrogation he never maintained i contact for more than a second almost immediately he admitted to the gun the restrained ended the sex yet she told a very different story than the men who accused him he claimed he had picked up both men for sex but got cold feet when they got back to his home according to ronald when he told the man he was nervous they both separately volunteered it'd be restrained to make him more comfortable after sex ronald said things got tense the men demanded money from him he got scared threatened them with his gun and kick them out he told officer harrelson quote i would never hurt nobody i'm not that type of person both the police and didn't buy it rattled was a terrible liar and the story was unconvincing when compared to the two identical accusations made years part he was charged with forcible rape and jailed on august fifteenth nineteen ninety six at the age of thirty two it should be noted however that while we only know about these two assaults it's statistically likely the dominic week raped or assaulted someone else before nineteen ninetythree according to an analysis of data on rape and sexual assault compiled by lawrence greenfeld sixty percent of sexual assault murderers are under the age of thirty in addition offenders in sexual assault cases which ended in murder were found to be on average six years younger than cases without murder given the frequency of his later offense says it's possible ronald regularly abducted and raped men but this was the first time he was caught ronald's first experience in jail terrified m b adrenaline rush and feeling of total control heat experienced after restraining assaulting his victims banished instead he only we felt fear to make matters worse the jail where he was sent to await his trial was rough and poorly supervised during his first month's there he was raped and assaulted so badly he was sent to the hospital experience had a profound effect on ronald but while it might make sense that after experiencing rape himself rattled would think twice before committing that crime he felt no such empathy instead he only grew angry angry luckily for ronald he didn't spend long stewing in prison forcible rape carries a penalty of five to forty years in jail but three months after he was arrested the charges against him were dropped ronald second victim was homeless center radic much like his first he skipped town before the trial and police couldn't hold ronald without evidence ronald dominic was released from jail on november seventh nineteen ninety six with plans to ensure nobody would ever be able to send him back to jail again ronald blamed his victim for his jail time he swore he never be that helpless again he promised he would never returned to jail not because he was going to straighten out his life but because he would no

after being released from prison on charges of forcible rape renault dominique age thirty three was ready to commit his first murder he had been traumatized in jail and needed to reclaim a sense of control over his life his first murder victim was a young man called david love john mitchell junior known by family and friends as tweety david was dropped off at his grandmother's house in the summer of nineteen ninety seven after they're spending several days visiting homa louisiana he told his mother that his uncle is gonna give him a ride back home to losing about forty five minutes away but that night his uncle got delayed on his way the pick david up david is eager to meet up with his friends back home so he decided to hitchhike tilling instead he never made it back his parents assumed he was with his friends when they didn't hear from him but on monday when he didn't show up for work at saint charles perish hospital the supervisor called his mother she was shaken david was never late any certainly never missed work she called the police department but by then it was too late the following following day july fourteenth nineteen ninety seven rumors spread through town the body matching david description had been found on river road in huntsville about five miles from his home the body was floating in a ditch off the main road the cause of death was officially listed as accidental drowning which seemed impossible the date it's parents he knew how to swim underwater was only chess deep there were no drugs or alcohol in his system system either so how could after hours from now all detectives could do was shrug their shoulders it's likely that ronald picked david up while he was hitchhiking in later confessions ronald said he generally seduced his victims by offering them money or drugs in this case it's possible that he merely told david he'd give him a ride once the target was in his truck ronald's held his victims at gunpoint and drove back to his trailer there he tied up sexually assaulted them that strangled him in david mitchell case investigators initially assumed he had drowned based on how they found the body the cause of death was later changed to a sixty asian shannon lining up with strangling the murder marked a dramatic escalation in ronald zemo previously he was only looking just satisfy a sexual desires but it's disturbing experiences in prison head shaking him he couldn't risk survivors going to police the fear of returning the prison drove him to kill he couldn't face the consequences for his actions in doctor eric kiki's serial murders and their victims hickey differentiate between two types of murders who engaged sexually with their victims lost murderers killed to satisfy a sexual urges fantasy sex murderers killed nearly the silence their victims ronald seems just fall into the latter camp this is reflected in the yarn reynolds had tried to spin police when he was arrested back in nineteen ninety six according to him he only resorted to violence because he felt threatened by the two victims not other way around to him violence was always a necessary evil rather than a motivation in itself his plan to kill his victims worked even after david body was discovered nobody came looking for ronald nobody even seemed interested in searching for a killer despite the fact that david wasn't excellent student a hard worker and had no drug habits the press unfairly maligned cms homeless and high risk they made is gruesome some death seem like the result of a risky lifestyle instead of a tragic murder that needed to be investigated as the days past and no police came knocking on ronald's trailer door he became more confident the next time he saw the opportunity to snare another victim he was sure he could see that without being caught six months later ronald did just that he claimed his second murder victim dictum twenty year old gary pierre on december fourteenth nineteen ninety seven gary was homeless and known to be involved with drugs like david mitchell he hitchhiked frequently police found his body in a secluded wooded area months about an hour away from tiptoe forensics determined he was found strangled by an unknown assailant in philip jenkins book using murder the social construction of cereal homicide jenkins writes the serial real killers are driven by the availability of victims much more then by any compulsion or desire to kill this seems to be true of ronald who often what many months in between murders although it's possible ronald claimed additional victims gums that remain undiscovered to this day the rental did not have an ingenious method for disposing of his victims bodies he merely hid in the wilderness it worked perfectly for his environment hiding the bodies in ditches or swamp land caused them to decay at a much faster rate than normal and destroyed evidence since he dumped the bodies in varying locations catching him was a near impossible task for police who didn't have any leads in addition ronald committed his crimes prior to the widespread use of dna evidence so law enforcement had to rely on more obvious physical clues like clothing fibers by the time the bodies were discovered there wasn't much to go on finally ronald shows victims on the fringes of society the majority were pour homeless and drug addicted he also preyed on black and gay men so there may have been prejudice behind the lack of investigative progress as the body count grew the more police struggled the braver ronald became he patiently waited for the opportunity to make his move on the right man the right night all alone on the right road meanwhile he didn't pay much attention to his personal life you stop going out to bars unless he was looking for a potential victim lee effort wasn't worth the prospect of projection his financial situation remains precarious says well he continued to work short term jobs most often as a meter reader for an electric company or a truck driver he didn't have much interest in working fulltime and spent his days off alone in his trailer fantasizing about his murderers and watching in old tv he passed his days like this first six months after murdering gary pierre then on july thirty first nineteen ninety eight ronald found another victim thirty eight year old and larry ranson according to one investigator his corpse was found near one hundred feet from where david mitchell's stumped like the previous attacks ranson had been bound prior to being strangled but unlike the first two victims who had no defensive the wounds whatsoever larry ranson had been beaten savagely the state of branson's body suggests that something winner right when ronald attacked him either ronald was forced a flight ranson off prior to restraining him or he thrash the man in a spontaneous fit of rage the severity of the beating suggests that ronald still dealing with trauma from being raped in prison reacting to later sexual situations with beer in violence is a common response to sexual sexual abuse according to the university of alberta sexual assault center sexual assault victims may feel anger or discussed when engaging in sexual activity after experiencing trauma some victims reporting uncontrollable people automatic reaction to touch like a flashback or panic attack parental didn't have the tools to recover after he was assaulted in prison it's possible there was some truth to the story he later described a law enforcement he claimed he pursued his victims adjuster sucks but upon becoming intimate he panicked indeed tapes of ronald's accounts of his murders and the documentary by you blew suggested once he solicited a sexual encounter he was instantly on his guard if anything unexpected occurred he reacted with violence in the tapes he seems to genuinely believe that he never meant to harm a fly we might never know the true motivations so the man police began calling the bio strangler we wouldn't know his real name for years even so in nineteen ninety eight rattled made sure his actions were on everyone's mind nineteen ninety eight with a particularly violent silent year for ronald now confident he could get away with murder ronald's appetite for death grew during the day he spent almost all of his time preparing for his next murder and searching for victims he had the free time needed because he's still subsisted on short term low paying jobs around this time he mostly did deliveries and construction work he didn't have any particular ambitions outside of those rapes and murders his dark secrets secret was all he fought about after years of their regular labor thirty four year old ronald saved up enough money to move into a new trailer in nineteen ninety eight his new home was in by you blew louisiana not far from home a it was more isolated than his previous place he often drove around the area looking for desperate young men he thought nobody would mess in october of nineteen ninety eight two months months after killing larry ronald bone to such targets he killed twenty seven year old oliver luck bags and sixteen year old joseph brown two weeks apart neither the victims had any connection to ronald but both made the fatal mistake of accepting would ever offered them be increasing frequency of ronald's murders marked a surgeon his confidence for the first time in his life he wasn't being humiliated by anyone else his secret critic empowered him he no longer performed in drag it the local gay bar he had other means receiving validation now coming up rattled widens the search for vulnerable young victims now back to the story in the span of a single year between nineteen ninety seven and nineteen ninety eight thirty four year old ronald dominique had raped and murdered at least five men around the small town by you blew louisiana all five bodies were found by police but they weren't any closer the catching the killer ronald wasn't even on their radar anti wasn't showing any signs of slowing down in november of nineteen ninety eight ronald took a risk he expanded his search for its next victim instead of scouring the dark desolate roads at the by ronald drove more than an hour north to branch bustling new orleans the streets were full young men just waiting for ronald first lurton neabry aided eighteen year old named bruce williams his car promising to pay him for sex he drove bruce to a secluded location before restraining evening and suffocating him then he dumped the body along the highway out of new orleans it was found on november twenty seventh after killing four people in a single year rental tried to rein in his desires he decided to wait a few months before he killed the cat unless of course another opportunity presented himself by april of nineteen ninety nine he was mad with lost now thirty five years old he returned new orleans and repeated his previous tactic to seduce nineteen year old men will reid with the promise of money or drugs men wells body was found soon afterward bruised battered and bearing signs of sexual assault ronald killed two more young men in nineteen ninety nine on hell met here and mitchell johnson both were strangled and dumped in a small town just half an hour from his home clearly his fears of getting caught or decreasing by the day ronald later offered apple insight into how ties to victims back to his car or trailer given his lackluster personality and unremarkable parents according to what he told police his tactics buried depending on the target if the men were young or desperate for money ronald would offered to pay them for sex once he got these men back to his trailer he'd offer more money to restrain them as part of the sex then things would take a dark turn sometimes ronald carried a picture of a young attractive woman with him he would approach targets and tell them that he had a wife he was unable to please he asked to pays victims have sex with her while he launched other times he just claimed to be acting on the woman's behalf and tell the man she loved asleep with him once the victim was back at his trailer he tied him up supposedly make the mystery woman feel safe and then rape and murder them if none of that works ronald would offer perspective victims drugs instead of sex whatever they excuse was his victims followed him back to his trailer in blue bio were put into a vulnerable herbal position than mitt they're terrible fate ronald's persuasive ness is more comprehensible when considering the level of poverty most of his victims faced many of them were desperate for any opportunity to make a quick buck and gave little thought to their personal wellbeing reynolds tense victim twenty three year old michael vincent was one such man he was a drifter who struggled with drugs and alcohol rattled met him in nineteen ninety nine just before the new millennium after enticing michael back to his trailer with the promise of drugs ronald raped and strangled him police found his body on january first two thousand in a swamp outside of homa ronald eleventh victim wouldn't be found for another two years but before that he ran into some other trouble with the law on may nineteenth two thousand ronald received a summons to appear in court for disturbing the peace it's unclear what he did but he pled guilty unpainted fine to avoid a court appearance like his first conviction for drunk driving his brush with the law scared him ronald decided to stop killing for as long as he could to ensure there was no sheet on him his killing spree were highly variable sometimes he got an uncontrollable urge for violence and claimed multiple victims in the same month while at other times he was able to suppress his desires for years at a time in this case ronald managed to abstain from killing two years it's likely this hiatus was also influenced by us health than does subsequent lack of opportunity at times he was bedridden due to his heart condition and could hardly walk look he didn't always have a place to himself either because of his irregular work and find answers he sometimes had to move back in with his mother or sister to make ends meet considering how cautious he was with his murders he likely wouldn't a gun searching for victims without absolute certainty that he would have time alone still his caution didn't always went out over impulse on february tenth two thousand two at age thirty eight ronald was arrested for slapping slapping a woman during a mardi gras parade reports claim that he accused the woman of hitting a baby stroller but their car in a parking lot the woman apologized but ronald wouldn't let it go he became enraged and screamed at her when she yelled back back he slapped her across the cheek he again avoided a court appearance and was released to a perish offenders program which required him to take anger management and job training classes ronald was willing to do whatever it took to finish the program end end the police supervision after only eight months by october two thousand two he completed the classes and was free again it seem surprising that authorities never made the connection between ronald and the bio strangler after all ronald wasn't a remote area had already been accused of threatening restraining an raping two men in nineteen ninety three due to his legal troubles troubles in two thousand and two thousand two his record's must have been reviewed at least twice of course it's easier to see connections in retrospect but despite his criminal record it seemed unlikely that frail thirty eight year old ronald dominique was physically capable of restraining and killing ten able bodied men besides it had been closed at ten years since he had been accused of his first crime there was little reason for law enforcement the suspect him because homer and the surrounding areas where so secluded the police department struggled to get the resources to pursue the murders both local police an local press were frustrated by the prejudices of larger more connected institutions the same reporter pointed out another factor that made it difficult for the mainstream media to sympathize with the killings the low social status of ronald victims caused some around the state to a third of the killings as taking out the trash no matter what contributed to most ronald's continued freedom he took advantage of it the same month he met the requirements for his release program after the mardi gras incidents october two thousand two he claimed his eleventh and twelfth victims twenty year old kenneth round off in twenty six year old a no good tori jones were found on the sides of dirt roads homer both men were known to hitchhike ronald dumped the bodies in saint charles perish about forty miles wells from homa he wanted to make it look as if they had been killed in saint charles area rather than at his trailer he took the corpses back to the side of the road where he had pick them up at first police searched the woods nearby hoping to last find a crime scene but came up with nothing would be authorities confused once again ronald laid low for a few months he didn't wanna risk drank too much attention to himself right after he completed tweeted the prison release program she waited until the following spring in may of two thousand three one evening he saw the trail woods riding his bike through by blue ronald pulled his car over and began his practice routine for sizing up the potential victim ronald struck up a conversation being careful tremaine subtle at first he learns detroit was only eighteen but it already spent two years in a correctional facility woods had virtually no contact with his family and struggled with mental illness he was riding his bike tahoma to meet up with some friends the longer he spoke with ronald the more he looked like an ideal victim ronald steer the conversation toward sex and offered to pay paid a travel for it with no support or financial prospects and maybe even lacking the mental capacity to properly evaluate the situation the trail agreed he put his bike in ronald's trunk and climbed into the passenger seat dominique drove the trail to be eventually mini storage facility in bio blue he knew from experience would be deserted late at night and it was isolated enough that nobody would hear them ronald told the crowd that he would pay for anal sex but was nervous about it in order to keep himself safe ronald astra restrained trail just so he could feel in control he was paying after all the troll agreed and ronald tied him up after after he was bound undressed ten completely helpless rental told the truth he wasn't going to pay to travel at all he was going to rape and kill him detroit struggled to no avail his screams he's never made it out at the vast neighboring by you ronald brought his total dictum count to thirteen that night afterward he drove to a small nearby church surrounded by sugarcane fields he dropped the trolls body amongst the canaan tall reads and drove away do trail woods body was discovered on may twenty six two thousand three in his confession ronald seem to remember the murder fondly he provided authorities with more detail about woods then he gave for any other victim apparently he particularly enjoy taking advantage of the mentally ill man local press whistle blows the by you strangler had struck again police were baffled baffled aggravated and angry thirteen live submitted and they had nothing to go the worst part was they had annoying feeling that the killings would only get worse luckily the police were about to catch break that would enable them to refocus their efforts to catch the killer the day after the trails body was found on may twenty seventh two thousand three louisiana state police apprehended another more notorious murder the bat and rouge serial killer state resources had been tied up in the hunt for the bat and ruge killer who was ultimately responsible for seven deaths for the past few years though that killers body count was much lower than the by you strangler batting rouge was a much bigger city and had access to more funding and equipment and the police around home on tobacco law enforcement there monopolized local resources to focus on what was most important to residents then set their own city another important factor that stall the bio strangler investigation was the type of victim ronald typically targeted most of his victims were homeless many black and some didn't have family or friends pushing police to look into their deaths that roof serial killer on the other hand was known for preying on white affluent female coeds this highlighted a racial disparity in the priorities of the police he's which delayed the strangler investigation while the hunt for the bat and rouge killer fired on all cylinders no state police were free to investigate the crimes of the straggler more thoroughly but they had a lot of catching up to do ronald claim two more victims in two thousand four both in october larry matthews a forty six year old homeless man in twenty one year old michael barnett were found naked and just succeeded in ditches near homa in march march of two thousand five after ronald sixteenth victim leon paulie read was found louisiana state police n d f b i finally came together they formed the by you strangler task force in march of that year given the flurry of strangulation victims that had been discovered over the past nine years police had known for a while they were probably dealing with an active serial killer they even had a list of probable suspects but but it was a difficult case to crack for one none of the victims knew each other and none of them knew ronald prior to their murders for another the human louisiana whether combined with e n accessibility of the region meant many of the bodies were heavily decomposed when they were covered it was hard enough just to identify the victims after they spent days baking in the swamp under the sun finding evidence that might leave them to the killer was impossible civil becomes ronald tended to kill his victims in his trailer or his car and dumped them elsewhere police didn't have a murder site it was like searching for a needle in a sixty mile wide haystack it looks like the rain the bio strangler was just beginning thanks again for tuning the serial killers will be back monday with

instead of reporting to the front lines the academic mining coal by hand in many cases prisoners died not that it really mattered because the Soviet government sent trains full of new work accordance worked up to fourteen hours a day the inmates were forced to do anything from carving canals out of the frozen ground with pickaxes broken didn't discuss it but by using a nineteen seventies KGB manual provided by Russian intelligence journal the interpreter we can we saw there however he still wanted to serve his country so he quit the archive and went to law school after graduating law school his studies Mitrokhin was sent to 'cause Don to review the archive of files on the prisoners and racial practices in the now infamous gulags a spy for the Soviet Committee of information for KFI Soviet spy training was shrouded in secrecy went through similar instruction as their KGB counterparts when he began his training Mitrokhin was probably taken to a facility far outside of any city offers every day the conditions in the Gulag were horrendous metro can soon lost his taste for documenting and cataloging and his work soon caught the attention of the Soviet foreign intelligence office in nineteen forty eight at the age of twenty six Vassili Mitrokhin became a group of young men they would all have been using assumed names forbidden from sharing their real identities there he would have learned common trade stand the instruction process Metro can win through even though the agency wasn't officially formed until nineteen fifty four K. I. agents most likely craft like using a dead drop to pass intelligence to an agent or informant dead drops are secret locations like a hole in a wall in his training he also would have practiced brush passes the art of suddenly handing off intelligence while making momentary passing contact Shen in a hidden place without being detected Mitrokhin would not have known who or how many people would be following him so his first step or a hollowed out book where sensitive information can be discreetly hidden for those in the know to find but that's not all Mitrokhin may have learned AAC anyone who is following him Mitrokhin would've walked a circuitous path docking in and out of hidden corners throughout the city but the spy if you look like a spy it wasn't just about being careful he had to fit into his surroundings foreign postings going undercover in the Middle East Iceland the Netherlands Pakistan and Australia but soon but trojans Oh banking system to subvert socialism he also had a particular hatred of Jewish doctors and had an irrational suspicion would be something called Pro Erica meaning dry cleaning this technique was a series of maneuvers designed to detect and hopefully often in public places for their final test new agents like nitro can were set loose in Moscow where the simple mission drop in for me known as Zionists within the USSR while there was no official religion under communism and Joseph Stalin saw any kind of power something as simple as being dressed too well for certain restaurant or meeting on the wrong street could get an ousted as spy with his training complete hire time his mind would have been working overtime if caught he would have to come up with an immediate end plausible explanation for his behavior Poland nineteen forty four metron worked both for the military and civilian police his archival training made him a diligent and careful lawyer even with Stalin out of the picture the plot against the USSR's Jewish people continued a few days after eight metro can successfully passed his tests and began his espionage career starting in nineteen fifty two he worked on a series of newspaper Pravda declared that nine Soviet doctors six of whom were Jewish had murdered two of Stalin's top aides known full religious group as a danger to the party he had designated Zionists as a high priority threat but Stalin's motivations weren't so well this was where Mitrokhin would have learned one of the KGB manuals most important rules of working in foreign intelligence you can't be to the gulags but as the plan was being set in motion Stalin died suddenly on March Fifth Nineteen fifty-three however commitment to the Soviet cause was tested one of his assignments was investigating an alleged conspiracy of Jewish nationalists has the Soviet doctors plot this false accusation was intended to kick off a secret plan to send the country's two million Jews injustices barriers admission however left Metro can feeling strangely hopeful communism wasn't the cause of all the paranoia can relief for the good of the Communist Party he had a long history of antisemitism and believe that Jewish people were covertly using the international for the first time atropine saw his assignment for what it was a paranoid conspiracy there was no fire existed it had been a figment of Stalin's imagination and the rest of the government had followed along blindly the nine country he loved Metro can waited for new leadership to emerge he loved his job in foreign intelligence in desperately wanted to believe that attracted the foreign intelligence offices attention was the ethnic background of the reporters wife you fair maid Mitrokhin began to wonder foreign correspondent for Pravda he was suspected of leading a secret Zionist network and working to wipe out the leadership of the Soviet Union early April Stalin former head of security Lavrenti Pablo Vich Beria made a public statement admitting that the Zionist plots never actors were cleared of charges seven were released but the other two had already been killed while in prison atropine was furious about those Stalin's death the thirty one year old atropine was sent on a mission to Paris his assignment was to investigate a Yuri Zhukov but as he investigated you Cov Metro can realize you was a man a lot like himself a hard working Patriot committed metro can learned about the speech when it was debated during a meeting of his KGB Communist Party branch the branch vigorously debated Khrushchev's that was all around them but the thirty four year old Mitrokhin couldn't help but wonder where Khrushchev was when Stalin was committing these crimes he was working for good change seemed to arrive in February nineteen fifty six Nikita Khrushchev the new leader of the Soviet Union gave a speech during a closed session of the Twentieth Congress of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union his talk entitled are there wasn't even any smoke atropine suspicions proved to be correct sometime in late March or sure would be different despite not being broadcast or printed words still spread about Khrushchev's unprecedented announcement and that they use their expertise to murder non Jews on January thirteenth nineteen fifty three the official Soviet Union I Jeff acknowledged Stalin's abuses of power and blamed it all on what he called Stalin's cult of personality Khrushchev promised that the future into the Soviet 'cause one thing he did learn however was that Zhukov French wife was Jewish it was clear that the only thing that has beach for two days some members were still too afraid to criticize their fallen leader others were relieved to be able to finally acknowledge the corruption mm to disguise his handwriting following the official KGB manual for proper protocol for communication with undercover agents he likely also worried that KGB lab might be able to deduce his identity from the saliva rocky left on the envelope though he wasn't sure if technology I used gloves to seal the envelope to guard against fingerprints even with all his spy training though atropine was still at risk he chrissy violence metro can had witnessed Stalin was and now that Stalin was dead it was time for a new leader to step forward and save the Metro CNN's belief in communism was still strong but his faith in his government was waning and was time for him to start taking action Jakob was clearly innocent perhaps the Jewish doctors implicated in the Soviet doctors plot were innocent as well one that particularly enraged atropine was when the Soviet government banned the great Russian author Boris Pasternak's novel doctors satisfaction or perhaps his skills were simply needed elsewhere whatever the reason the ceiling atropine was no longer a spy Zuleta was never really anonymous government spies would search for little clues that could give away his identity so he wrote in his left hand Viet- spy by day frustrated anonymous letter writer by night but later in nineteen fifty-six after only a few months of writing letters averred in these files would change the course of history and that he wasn't done being a spy yet instead he was back to filing an organizing evidence of Soviet atrocities little Mitrokhin know that what he discussed an intelligence service metro can was never given an explanation for his demotion maybe the higher ups got wind of his but he called on his years of spy training to give him ideas he began to write anonymous letters to newspapers in protest of certain government decisions on the cult of personality and its consequences became famously known as the secret speech for the first time ever his career took an unexpected turn he was taken away from his intelligence work and sent to the archives back in the basement of the foreign rush espionage that's F.

nineteen fifty seven the Soviets beat the US in the space race with the launch of sputnik the first job it looked as if an end of the Cold War was on the horizon but within the Soviet Union tensions

archived files needed himself he needed to answer second question how to smuggle it out metro can had to wait around four as well as persecution of religious groups Mitrokhin thought he could use the same techniques these rebels used to make some as dot to release his corrupt communism that Metro can had been hoping for in Moscow however Soviet leaders began to fear that socialism with a human face more illegals had been deployed during the Prague Spring then for any operation in any Western country if his life had turned out different he could have been one of those illegals it made him sick to think that he could have been spying on his fellow Soviets this was the final Straw from atropine he still believed in the idea of communism but he was finally convinced that the men in charge of it were irredeemable using carbon copies sometimes longhand with the ballpoint pen on newsprint hand bound books were created using typewriters and then quietly passed token didn't care he read Psalms dot publications whenever he could get his hands on them but before he could even think of sharing any information a to these atrocities the punishment for being found with Sambas dot was

chronicle of current events where about physical and mental health abuses by the Soviet government acid operation was none other than fifty year old vassily metro can even though he had been working in the archives for years be checked by hand before they departed KGB headquarters and upon arrival at UC Santa and the person in charge of this information according to Russia beyond author the Katharina Alaska the psalmist dot documents were copied by hand sometimes Mitrokhin formulated a plan to get the information out without arousing suspicion he committed names in facts to memory was a little too close to capitalism and on August twenty first nineteen sixty eight the Kremlin sent tanks into Prague to suppress the movement metro can new collectives of dissidents and political rebels who were collecting and self publishing material known as some as dot he knew he needed accurate information has metro can reviewed his files he took notes in tiny handwriting then crumpled the paper

psalm dot material was even smuggled out of the Soviet Union into democratic countries with the hope of bringing global attention KGB archive working on the files deemed too sensitive to transport the ones detailing the legendary direct his weekly schedule was as follows on Mondays Tuesdays and Fridays he would make copies of the files as they arrived in the new office and act all the evidence he could about the KGB's history of illegal operations and human rights abuses but he couldn't release anything yet if his plan was exposed thousands of classified documents would remain buried in the archives before Mitrokhin acted he wanted grits field agents assignments codenames and even their original Russian identities if foreign governments like the US and wrote them down when he got home then he hit his hand copied note under his bed or in other secret places in his apartment but that proved I in through them in the trash he didn't want to risk anyone seeing the papers on his desk or one accidentally falling out of his pocket at the end of the day there was still a risk that pulling up files could draw the wrong kind of attention but now that he was in charge of the project it was his notes to his family's country house and hide them for safekeeping but on Wednesdays the token found himself deep in the bowels of the old it s division that recruited and trained the so called Eagles this was the holy grail of KGB lives Mitrokhin was still a spy he knew there was always a chance of being tailed by agents from the surveillance or counter intelligence already guards without breaking a sweat however he didn't let himself get too comfortable even though he spent most of his time in the Arctic got their hands on this information it would have meant certain death for everyone involved the sealy metro can calmly copied the fifty year old Soviet archivist the Sealy Mitrokhin became fed up with the atrocities he was forced to document despite not having an Fokin deployed his best tradecraft to avoid getting caught he would vary the route he took home from work knowing that a predictable pattern makes it easier step months went by an years atropine settled into his routine and but one day trojans worst fears were realised someone was interested in him and they wanted to ask Mitchell is priceless state secrets and hidden in his shoes they still didn't know what he was going to do with this information but gathering it was the first directorates the Soviet government was always suspicious Im- atropine knew they weren't above spying on their own people so much stop in especially a soccer loving Englishman but then he was seized with a terrifying thought KGB agent training specific game he began to smuggle out damning information from the KGB archives and hide it in the apartment he shared with his wife and child for years grew more comfortable he was a trusted supervisor and no one suspected he was up to something and soon enough he could get past the six a senator on Thursdays he would ready files for transport from the old KGB headquarters to the new building on weekends he would take his couldn't afford to be stopped and searched if he was then he would be immediately caught and he knew exactly what kind of punishment off the local sports shop associated with the moscow-based professional soccer team Dinamo see as he was browsing he found himself for someone to be followed he took care to blend in at work and around the city since standing out in any way might attract unwanted attention cle- warned against meeting in cafes or other places where foreigners are known to gather agents were also encouraged to meet after work it's just like the psalmist dot papers he had read this came with a bigger risk but if he wanted to expose the hypocrisy of the Soviet Union Berlin Wall adds a new layer of urgency to his operation and now back to the story beginning in nineteen seventy two near to other patrons speaking to each other in English initially atropine thought nothing of it on this was exactly the kind of place that a foreigner might followed the coast seemed clear Mitrokhin turn the corner and headed home breathing a sigh of relief oh by some reason to explain why he ended up in a sports shop surrounded by Englishman Atropine moved away from the foreigners he discreetly Doug has not out of the trash stuff them into his shoes and then carefully made his way past the guards on his way out of the building and places with busy street life if there was someone tailing him shokhin feared that he had inadvertently led them to what looked like the perfect here's he was careful about making sure no one was onto him but soon it appeared that he had been caught one day Mitrokhin stopped Jokin a couple of questions coming up the ceiling atropine archive is in danger of exposure and the fall the two shadowy figures standing in front of his own apartment door Mitrokhin stood on the street corner wondering what to do he alerted him to this danger and he knew the same training could help him get out of it if caught it was important to have a plausible part of him never wanted to reach his front door but he knew there was no getting around the confrontation his heart was beating fast and his expanded his operation after years of observing security guard to the KGB facilities he concluded that they never checked the workers bags he would get he would be tried in secret and shot in the back of the head in the KGB execution seller Mitrokhin spy training information drop he could feel the slight bulge in his shoe where he had stashed that days batch of notes he plan for what to do with these secrets his only goal was to collect as much dirt as possible each night he took his plans home and hid them underneath needed his work taking notes on larger and larger pieces of paper and transporting them in his jacket pockets and pants he still didn't have a they would return despite the close call the Trojan didn't stop smuggling out documents if anything he but not too quickly to draw suspicion then he stopped by any other sporting shop he could find in the area this way any agent following him would had run but that could draw attention and they would just be able to find him later he had a wife and child so he couldn't just disappear without a trace briefcases they would only pat down the workers themselves and since metro can was the boss he was never checked so mitrokhin escalate it was closed the hallway was empty and quiet he walked from end end checking behind corners nobody was it was shopping for sporting gear nothing unusual about that he adjusted speed walking too quickly or too slowly would draw attention leave that he was actually out on a shopping trip he stopped in shop after shop inconspicuously looking over his shoulder to see if he was being meaning to come through it was right now the troch rounded the final corner and saw his apartment door for the first time there the men had disappeared Mitrokhin hurried inside and locked the door half thankful for his luck half worried but ashey approached his apartment building he noticed something unusual there in the window of his ninth floor hallway he spotted says he saw it the only option was to face this head on truckin made the long ascent to the ninth floor rehearsing in his head uh-huh were sweating just like that first trip out of the archives with the notes in his shoes in seventy two if there was ever a moment he needed his spy down under the raised floor of the country house and there was just enough space in the basement from atropine to maneuver the churn though he often found himself an animal chokhin was immediately struck by a story he had heard about the famous Russian writer. Alexander Solzhenitsyn an unassuming country home it was easy to assume that his documents were safer in such peaceful surroundings than they would be in Moscow his mattress and every weekend he would take his notes to the family's Country House UROSEVAC forty seven miles for Moscow ever the spy ever make the effort eventually he was smuggling out so many

Twenty first nineteen twenty seven police officers raided daly's sixty third street theatre where a play called. Sex was enjoying a sold out run. They wanted to close down the show and put its thirty four year. Old author and star mae west behind bars the charge obscenity. It was the era of prohibition and the moral reforms were out in full force. The cops marched her outside and forced her into the back of a paddy wagon the tabloid press was already on the scene and they were having a field day. It wasn't every day a show closed for being well offensive camera bulbs flashed and reporters shouted questions as the car took off for the station may was indignant. She couldn't believe the police had actually arrested her but she swore that no matter what they threatened her with. She wouldn't close the show when she got to the station. The authorities gave her a choice. End the show and walk away or face trial. It wasn't even a question may posted bail and said she'd see them in court. Her decision was part practical part principled. She believed she had a right to say whatever she wanted in her plays. That was the definition of free speech after all but beyond that may knew her arrest was great publicity and a trial would give her even more. Sex had become popular mostly because it got bad reviews and was deemed too racy for the stage and now that she was facing criminal charges for writing it. Everyone would want to see what all the fuss was about. She was right while she awaited a court date. Sex ran for one more month and every performance was sold out if finally closed in march nineteen twenty seven after nearly a full year on broadway a month later on april nineteenth nineteen twenty seven thirty four year old may stranded into court. She was dressed to the nines in a fur coat and a big hat and she spoke to the judge with the same voice. She used onstage dripping with attitude and innuendo. The prosecution accused may of writing and performing obscene and immoral material. The defense argued that she had a right to free speech but in the end the all male jury sided with the prosecution may was guilty. The judge then offered me a choice. She could pay a fine of five hundred dollars and be done with the entire thing or she could pay nothing and do ten days in the workhouse. She chose the workhouse it wasn't about. The money may could have easily paid the fine. She wanted to make a point. If lawmakers and city officials wanted to send a woman to jail for her artistic expression then so be it she'd take one for the team of course may wasn't a normal criminal by anyone's standards from the moment. The judge sentenced her. She received special privileges starting with her transportation may try to hire a limousine driver to the institution on roosevelt island. So her fans could watch for procession but no one was around to change the rules for her so she settled for a solo ride in the wagon. once they're her privileges only continued in a famous. Showdown with the warden. She refused to wear the prison underwear saying she preferred her usual silk undergarments. It didn't take him long to acquiesce. He also assigned may a private room gave her work in his residence and would take her out on evenings with him and his wife. Even the other inmates went out of their way to welcome her. She was a star in their midst and they were thrilled to get the chance to meet her. So while may was in jail. She wasn't really doing hard time but she later said the experience changed her that it made her appreciate her own life that much more. She vowed that after her release she would do something to better. The lives of the women inside. She soon got her chance. When may was released she agreed to an exclusive interview with liberty magazine about her experience. The publication paid her one thousand dollars. Which would be about fifteen thousand dollars. Today may donated all of it to start a library for the female prisoners but while mazed donation was significant. It was the full extent of her contribution to the cause while the ward and asked her to come back and visit the inmates to boost. Morale may never got around to doing that before. We continue with maize psychology. I'm not a licensed psychiatrist or psychologist. But i have done a lot of research for the show virtue. Signaling wasn't a term yet in nineteen twenty seven but this was exactly what may was doing. It occurs when a person feels that one virtuous act allows them to then act less than virtuously in may's case her donation made her feel that she done the right thing and she was excused from doing more. It makes sense that maze mind worked this way for her entire adult life. She'd been called immoral so she had to defend her morality at least to herself and for her one donation was all. It took to feel like she'd done enough to help the female inmates. It didn't matter to her whether other people like the warden thought she should have done more at the end of the day. She had to look after herself. First and foremost after all. Nothing in the world was as important to may as her career and that career kept moving at a brisk pace. She eventually came up with her next play diamond. Lil which debuted on april ninth. Nineteen twenty eight like her previous peace diamond. Lil was also about sex but may treated the subject matter in a more sophisticated way. This time the play was set in the eighteen nineties and the lead character wasn't a sex worker but the mistress of a powerful man it explored the same themes of female sexuality pleasure and power. But it's glamorous costumes and veneer of elegance attracted a more mainstream audience than sex had also may was hilarious in fact it was this role that created the persona that she's known for today a sexy strong ahead of her time woman unafraid to poke a little fun at herself and make people laugh. Diamond lil was a hit and thirty five year. Old may was so popular that she decided to jump start her next project. The pleasure man. This was a reworking of a play that may wrote called the drag a comedy about a closeted gay man. The original play wasn't successful. Theatergoers shunned due to its gay lead. Gay cast and scenes with drag queens. This time may was determined to get it to broadway. She changed the lead role to a straight man and the story into a murder mystery. But she peppered with many of the same characters and scenes from the drag including a drag ball maze. Use of this subject matter is admittedly complicated on one hand. She was one of only a handful of straight writers writing about the world of drag queens and the lives of gay men so it was an incredible opportunity to increase visibility for gay artists and stories but may wasn't approaching this material as an activist. She was writing it to stand out. Earlier may took the shimmy from black dancers and use the move to further her own career. What we would call cultural appropriation today now with her. Plays the drag and the pleasure man. She borrowed from gay culture to make a name for herself. But in this case it her a little too much attention when the pleasure man opened on broadway on october first nineteen twenty eight may was still performing diamond lil across town. She'd heard rumors that city officials were unhappy with the play but she assumed that the changes she made to the lead character and the story would put their concerns to rest. She was wrong. Police raided the show on opening night and arrested sixty cast members. When may heard what had happened. She raced to the police station and bailed out every performer. But she wasn't too worried. She figured the cops had made their statement and the scandal would turn into publicity and prophets a few nights later. The pleasure man opened for the second time the police raided data performance to may bailed out her cast members again. But this time the city plan to prosecute her and the rest of the actors for indecency this meant possible. Jail time for everyone may didn't mind taking the fall but she refused to jeopardize her cast. Reluctantly she closed the show. They never made it to a third performance. But may didn't have much time to fred over the pleasure man's untimely demise. Because her mother matilda had received some disturbing news mathilde had liver cancer. Her diagnosis was terminal. But at matilda's request may was kept in the dark about this important fact. Mathilde didn't want to distract may from her career unaware just how bad the cancer was. Nee was determined to help her. Mother beat it. She was convinced they could do it. Through the power of positive thinking so she decided to take her mom on outings to make her feel better and nothing made me feel better than going shopping. Matilda was thrilled by the idea but when the day came she couldn't manage to get herself out the door so may went to all of her. Mother's favourite stores tried on dresses and picked out the ones. Her mom might like best. She bought two of everything one for her mom to wear right away while she was frail and one for when she recovered and was back to her normal weight when she got home may presented her mom with her fines. As matilda carefully tried on each dress may felt a surge of hope. She believed that if her mother had enough new close to look forward to wearing it would bring her back to health but the cancer progressed until finally. May's father told her that her mom was about to die. May receive the news in the middle of a performance and after the curtain closed. She rushed home to be with her mother. Matilda passed away on january twenty. Sixth nineteen thirty at age. Fifty six may felt as if her entire world had just crumbled. She was hysterical. Crying every minute of every day it was so bad that she almost quit performing altogether without her mother. Her best friend and biggest supporter. She just didn't see the point. Little did she know her career was far from over. In fact her next great success was right around the corner up next. A heartbroken may takes hollywood by storm and makes history too boot high listeners. To celebrate our favourite month park has network is releasing a slate of new shows leaning into all things spooky and spine tingling.

Charges for her first broadway play became a bona fide star with her follow up diamond lil and then faced even more heat for her gay. Themed the pleasure man. Police raids forced the played a close after only to broadway performances. As if that weren't bad enough maize mother. Matilda died in early. Nineteen thirty understandably may was devastated and considered stopping acting and writing for good but then may thought about what her mom would say. If she quit matilda's entire life had been about supporting may's career and may couldn't just throw it away now. That would be like letting her mother die a second time. Little by little may learn to live with her grief to distract herself. She buried herself in work and started writing books. She published her first. One babe gordon at the end of nineteen thirty and adapted it into a broadway play the following year then in nineteen thirty two. She published the novelization of diamond. Lil slowly may set her sights on a new goal. Something bigger than a hit. Play the movies. During the last few years silent films had turned into talkies and with that maze interest in films had grown. She felt that her talents could finally be put to use on the big screen but may wanted hollywood to come to her. She didn't wanna go begging a studio for a deal. It turned out. She didn't need to paramount studios. Came calling in nineteen thirty two. It was on the verge of bankruptcy and in desperate need of something or someone to turn things around. They approached may for a long term contract. This was how all the studios worked at the time. Each one own to star who they could loan out at will but thirty nine year. Old may didn't like that idea. She didn't wanna be the property of a studio just like she didn't want to be the property of a man. She negotiated with paramount for a short term contract and they agreed may was thrilled. Paramount brought me out to hollywood and put her up in an apartment building near the studio. They told her that they were just polishing the script for her first picture night night and she'd get it in no time at all but soon she realized that wasn't quite the truth. The script wasn't even finished. Paramount had signed may knowing that she wouldn't be able to work right away really didn't want her going to a rival studio may was incensed. She threatened to pack up and leave right then. Didn't care about the money. She just wanted to work but her lawyer and manager jin. Timmy encouraged her to wait. It out may listened kind of. She agreed to stay in los angeles but demanded that the studios sent her the script and let her fix it. She told them she could get it done quickly. And then they could all move onto shooting a thing. They handed over the draft with the stipulation that she could only change her part she agreed and then saw how small her part actually was so may rewrote her lines to ensure she made a big splash. This script revision led to one of may's most iconic film moments in her very first seen in night after night maze character. Monty triplet walks into a nightclub. It was mae west all the way from the rolling strut to the diamonds on every finger. Another character exclaims goodness. What beautiful diamonds and may in her deep seductive voice replies goodness had nothing to do with it dearie at the movies. Nineteen thirty two premiere. The line landed just as may had intended. The audience roared with laughter. Everyone loved as performance in night after night so much so that paramount offered may a longer term contract and a chance to adapt diamond lil into a film and of course this time may would star for most actresses that would have been more than enough. But not for may. She wanted to write the script. Control the costume design and get paid handsomely paramount head adolph zocor gave her script and costume control then. It came time to discuss her salary. He asked her how much she wanted. She asked him how much he made in a year when he told her may said i want a dollar more and she got it. The deal wasn't just unheard of it. Was revolutionary never before had an actress had so much control over her own image or been paid so much and up to now may have made only one hollywood movie but she knew exactly how much she was worth when it comes to negotiating studies have shown women to be less successful than men there variety of societal and psychological reasons for this but a recent study by researcher elaine. Hong found that things change when power comes into play in hong study whether or not a man felt he had power made no difference in the outcome of his negotiations but the it was true with women. If a woman felt she had power she fared so much better at negotiation that any sort of gender gap completely disappeared because may had more social power than the average woman in the nineteen thirties. She felt entitled to more. This gave her the confidence to ask for more in doing so. She got what she wanted and shattered. All sorts of gender assumptions and stereotypes in the process may go to work writing the screenplay for diamond lil and searched for her leading man. There was no shortage of actors around town but mae west wouldn't settle for just anyone. She needed the perfect co star. One afternoon on the paramount. Lot may reportedly caught sight of a young man walking down the street. She stopped dead in her tracks. He was the most beautiful man she had ever seen. Not her type exactly may preferred musclemen over pretty faced actors but she knew this man was exactly the type to light up the screen. She turned to her companion and asked who he was. Her friend told her his name. Cary grant granted only done a few small pictures but may didn't care about any of that nor did she care that he was eleven years younger than her. An age gap. That was usually flipped in men's favor. All she knew was that she wanted to cast him and no one said no to may west diamond lil was renamed to she done him wrong and premiered in february nineteen thirty three and it was everything may had dreamed of her first starring picture role. The film was a staggering commercial success. It had only a budget of two hundred thousand dollars but it made two point two million dollars at the box office today. That would be nearly forty five million dollars. It was just what the struggling studio needed. Only four months later paramount was back in the black with that film may became a true hollywood star and her leading man carey grant became one. Well they were so popular together that they start in another movie later. That year mae west wrote that one to called. I'm no angel. She played a lion tamer. Who sues her ex fiance for breaking off their engagement. The film was a hit with women who loved seeing may play a likable smart and independent woman. Who was beautifully dressed even while taming lions and cary grant was pretty easy on the eyes as well but not everyone loved. Mae west her double entendre as and sexual innuendoes. Were drawing the attention of the censors. Who were gaining traction. In hollywood joseph ignatius breen was one of them as the head of the hollywood censorship. Division and dutiful catholic. He saw it as his responsibility to police. The film industry's morality. As far as he was concerned there was far too much violence and immorality in pictures and it was affecting the children of america that included a worrying trend. He and others had seen in movies lately. Unabashed female sexuality. It seemed to be everywhere. Marlene dietrich kissed another woman in the nineteen thirty film morocco. Jean harlow played a social climbing woman. Who uses sex to get to the top in red headed woman but by nineteen thirty four. The actress who surpassed them all was mae. West other movies might have had a few scenes that bothered the moral reformers but made scripts had risque jokes on every page plus her lead characters were always fallen women who never seemed to learn a moral lesson it drove. The moral reform is crazy after much back and forth with the studios. The sensors finally one in july of nineteen thirty four. The production code administration opened its doors. The administration's sole purpose was to regulate movie. Content and while. Hollywood bigwigs weren't thrilled with this development. It was better than the alternative federal oversight under the new production code also known as the hays code studios had to submit their scripts and advance. The hays office would mark it up with any changes. They deemed necessary. And then they trade script revisions back and forth with the studio. They fought over every qatar alteration until the hays office gave their final approval and when a script got final approval it couldn't be changed may had a hard time getting much by the censors. She started to put things in the script that would embarrass even her just so they would notice the lions she actually wanted to keep. It was a slow and subjective process and often may would be censored for things that other actresses could get away with just because she was mae west at last her success proved to be something of a liability by this time. Forty one year old may was the highest paid actress in the us. In fact the only other american making more money than her was. William randolph hearst. But that just made her an even bigger target. The censors had made her public enemy number one and they were determined to bring her down up. Next may battles the censorship office.

Abc don't miss it now back to the story Mae west hit the hollywood scene with a bang endearing. Herself to a public was absolutely ravenous for more of her but not everyone loved her big personality or her unbridled sexuality. Moral reforms were set on regulating the movie industry and stars like made that they deemed immoral with the creation of the production code administration in nineteen thirty four. Everything changed maze. First film under the new code was a mess. She and the sensors fought over everything. Starting with the title it was originally called. It ain't no sin but after the sensors made a fuss paramount eventually settled on a and sleepy or title belle of the nineties. The film was finally approved to be shot but after production it faced even more censorship during the editing process. The hays office decided the film needed a new ending. They wanted to see that the immoral woman had learned a lesson and seeing the error of her ways so paramount brought may and her co star into film a new ending where her character got married. The sensors were appeased but audiences were confused. The ending made no sense in the context of the movies story. Not only that. It was awful for maize image. She wasn't a woman who got married. Not in real life and not onscreen. at least. That's what may want everyone to think for years now. Her estranged husband frank. Wallace had kept their marriage a secret but in nineteen thirty five a month before her new film was released. A bomb dropped mae. West was a married woman. Frank had spilled the truth to the press he was strapped for cash and the revelation was the only thing he had to sell at. I may denied it. She tried to argue that. There were other mae west's and surely this was all a mix up but then the press found the marriage record with her parents details on it and there was no way for may to wiggle her way out. She had no choice but to admit to the marriage she called it a childish mistake and tried to push it behind her as if she could will it out of existence but the damage was already done. The mae west character and the real mae west were one and the same by this point and her entire persona was built around the idea that she was not bound to any one man. If the real mae west was married than what did that mean for the character she played on screen. Forty two year old may tried to repair her reputation but it had already suffered a blow between the sensors whitewashing her performances and the revelation of her secret marriage may seemed poised for a fall desperate to maintain her career may decided to go in the completely opposite direction for her next film she would show that she could be inoffensive in klondike annie. She played a woman who had seen the error of her ways and had become a missionary. But that didn't land well with audiences either. No one bought that may west had found religion and no one asked for that. Either the lure of mae west was that she was a fun bad girl. The good girl version was far. Less entertaining may did two more films with paramount studios but her star was fading when her contract expired. They decided not to renew her. That opened the door for universal studios to approach her in nineteen forty. They wanted forty-seven-year-old. May to star in my little chickadee with w c fields. She agreed hoping that the film might be the comeback she needed. The movie itself was successful and remains one of may's more well known films but she struggled in the role and felt out of place after all she was nearly fifty and was still playing the same character where other actresses could disappear into. Different characters may couldn't play anyone but may west. She was trapped in the persona she had created and now that she was getting old at least by hollywood standards. She didn't know where she fit. There was no way she was gonna play. Someone's mother or god forbid grandmother so after one more lousy film may decided to change things up once again. This time she went to las vegas. Doing a vegas act was like vaudeville all over again. But this time as she sang and told jokes all around her stood oiled up. Muscleman wearing barely anything may had seen endless acts for men full of near naked women but now she wanted to give something to the ladies. The men in her act were all former. Mr universes or bodybuilding champions and according to may fought over her constantly one day at a press conference. Two of them got into a fight. One insulted may behind her back and another bodybuilder. Paul not back came to may's defense. Paul punched the other man beating him up until he was on the ground and someone called an ambulance soon after sixty one year old may and thirty one year old. Paul became romantic partners. He was utterly devoted to her. As far as he was concerned he was placed on earth to take care of her but he never sought out the spotlight. He was content to stand at her side and she loved him for that they were happy together and lived as a couple in. May's home in santa monica for years but domestic bliss wasn't enough to keep may from working for good in nineteen seventy seventy seven year old. May return to the silver screen to co star in myra breckenridge a film. That ended up being something of a cult classic. She played exactly the same character. She had always played that inspired her to produce her final film. Eight years later in. Nineteen seventy eight at eighty. Five may starred in sex tat. A movie based on one of her earlier plays in the film. She plays a woman with six different husbands. Played by actor. Tony curtis george hamilton timothy dalton and ringo starr all at least thirty years her junior. It's a campy movie by pretty much. Anyone standards but it was also mazed last jab against social norms. She didn't care that she was eighty. Five she was still going to celebrate her sexuality. This went against the grain of how people believed a woman. Her age should act in a study on the depiction of the elderly. In film researcher. Torbjorn built guard found that elderly sexual women are depicted as comical out of place or even dangerous. That's because audiences have a hard time understanding why an elderly woman even need sex. It's deemed unnatural but may believe that what we see on the screen should be a reflection of reality as an eighty five year old woman. She was still a sexual being who enjoyed the companionship of younger men and so she forged ahead with the film. It didn't matter to her that what she was doing was seen as provocative. She was just doing what she had always done. Depicting female sexuality the only way she knew how sex tat was. May's final film in nineteen eighty two years after its release eighty seven year old may passed away. Some people looked back on her career and saw an accomplished woman. Who changed the world forever. Others saw an exaggerated can't be performer. Who was fun to parody but may never cared what anyone thought one way or another. She knew that she had accomplished what she had set out to do with her life. As she famously said you only live once but if you do it right once is enough mae west did it right.

On february twenty first nineteen twenty seven police officers raided daly's sixty third street theatre where a play called sex was enjoying a sold out run. They wanted to close down the show and put its thirty four year. Old author and star mae west behind bars the charge obscenity. It was the era of prohibition and the moral reforms were out in full force. The cops marched her outside and forced her into the back of a paddy wagon the tabloid press was already on the scene and they were having a field day. It wasn't every day show closed for being well. Offensive camera bulbs flashed reporters shouted questions as the car took off for the station may was indignant. She couldn't believe the police had actually arrested her but she swore that no matter what they threatened her with. She wouldn't close the show when she got to the station. The authorities gave her a choice. End the show and walk away or face trial. It wasn't even a question may posted bail and said she'd see them in court. Her decision was part practical part principled. She believed she had a right to say whatever she wanted her plays. That was the definition of free speech after all but beyond that may knew her arrest was great publicity and a trial would give her. Even more sex had become popular mostly because it got revenge us and was deemed too racy for the stage and now that she was facing criminal charges for writing it. Everyone would want to see what all the fuss was about. She was right while she awaited a court date. Sex ran for one more month and every performance was sold out. It finally closed in march nineteen twenty seven nearly a full year on broadway a month later on april nineteenth nineteen twenty seven thirty four year old may stranded into court. She was dressed to the nines in a fur coat and a big hat and she spoke to the judge with the same voice. She used onstage dripping with attitude and innuendo. The prosecution accused may of writing and performing obscene and immoral material. The defense argued that she had a right to free speech. But in the end the all-male jury cited with the prosecution may was guilty. The judge then offered me a choice. She could pay a fine of five hundred dollars and be done with the entire thing or she could pay nothing and do ten days in the workhouse. She chose the workhouse. It wasn't about the money may could have easily paid the fine. She wanted to make a point. If lawmakers and city officials wanted to send a woman to jail for her artistic expression then so be it she'd take one for the team of course may wasn't a normal criminal by anyone's standards from the moment. The judge sentenced her. She received special privileges starting with her transportation may try to hire a limousine driver to the institution on roosevelt island. So her fans could watch for procession but no one was around to change the rules for her so she settled for a solo ride in the wagon. once they're her privileges only continued in a famous. Showdown with the warden. She refused to wear the prison underwear saying she preferred her usual silk undergarments. It didn't take him long to acquiesce. He also assigned may a private room gave her work in his residence and take her out on evenings with him and his wife even the other inmates out of their way to welcome her she was a star in their midst and they were thrilled to get the chance to meet her. So while may was in jail. She wasn't really doing hard time but she later said that. The experience changed her that it made her appreciate her own life. That much more. She vowed that after her release she would do something to better. The lives of the women inside. She soon got her chance. When may was released she agreed to an exclusive interview with liberty magazine about her experience. The publication paid her one thousand dollars. Which would be about fifteen thousand dollars. Today may donated all of it to start a library for the female prisoners but while maize donation was significant. It was the full extent of her contribution to the cause while the warden astor to come back and visit the inmates to boost. Morale may never got around to doing that before. We continue with maize. psychology. I'm not a licensed psychiatrist or psychologist. But i have done a lot of research for the show virtue. Signaling wasn't a term yet in nineteen twenty seven but this was exactly what may was doing. It occurs when a person feels that one virtuous act allows them to then act less than virtuously in may's case her donation made her feel that she'd done the right thing and that she was excused from doing more. It makes sense that maze mind worked this way for her entire adult life. She'd been called immoral so she had to defend her morality at least to herself and for her one donation was all. It took to feel like she'd done enough to help the female inmates. It didn't matter her whether other people like the warden thought she should have done more at the end of the day. She had to look after herself. First and foremost after all. Nothing in the world was as important to may as her career and that career kept moving at a brisk pace. She eventually came up with her next play diamond. Lil which debuted on april ninth. Nineteen twenty eight like her previous peace diamond. Lil was also about sex but may treated the subject matter in a more sophisticated way. This time the play was set in the eighteen. Ninety s and the lead character a sex worker but the mistress of a powerful man it explored the same themes of female sexuality pleasure and power. But it's glamorous costumes and veneer of elegance attracted a more mainstream audience than sex had also may was hilarious in fact it was this role that created the persona that she's known for today a sexy strong ahead of her time woman unafraid to poke a little fun at herself and make people laugh. Diamond lil was a hit and thirty five year. Old may was so popular that she decided to jump start her next project. The pleasure man. This was a reworking of a play that may wrote called the drag a comedy about a closeted gay man. The original play wasn't successful. Theatergoers shunned it due to its gay lead. Gay cast and scenes with drag queens. This time may was determined to get it to broadway. She changed the lead role to a straight man and the story into a murder mystery. But she peppered it with many of the same characters and scenes from the drag including a drag ball maze. Use of this subject matter is admittedly complicated on one hand. She was one of only a handful of straight writers writing about the world of drag queens and the lives of gay men so it was an incredible opportunity to increase visibility for gay artists and stories but may wasn't approaching this material as an activist. She was writing it to stand out. Years earlier may took the shimmy from black dancers and use the move to further her own career. What we would call cultural appropriation today now with her. Plays the drag and the pleasure man. She borrowed from gay culture to make a name for herself. But in this case it got her a little too much attention. When the pleasure man opened on broadway on october first nineteen twenty eight may was still performing diamond lil across town. She'd heard rumors that city officials were unhappy with the play but she assumed that the changes she made to the lead character and the story would put their concerns to rest. She was wrong. Police raided the show on opening night and arrested sixty cast members. When may heard what had happened. She raced to the police station and bailed out every performer. But she wasn't too worried. She figured the cops had made their statement and the scandal would turn into publicity and prophets a few nights later. The pleasure man opened for the second time the police raided that performance to may bailed out her cast members again but this time the city plan to prosecute her and the rest of the actors for this meant possible jail time for everyone may mind taking the fall but she refused to jeopardize her cast reluctantly. She closed the show. They never made it to a third performance. But may didn't have much time to fred over the pleasure man's untimely demise. Because her mother matilda had received some disturbing news mathilde had liver cancer. Her diagnosis was terminal. But at matilda's request may was kept in the dark about this important fact. Mathilde didn't want to distract may from her career unaware just how bad the cancer was may was determined to help her mother beat. It was convinced they could do it through the power of positive thinking so she decided to take her mom on outings to make her feel better and nothing made may feel better than going shopping. Matilda was thrilled by the idea but when the day came she couldn't manage to get herself out the door so may went to all of her. Mother's favourite stores tried on dresses and picked out the ones. Her mom might like best. She bought two of everything one for her mom to wear right away while she was frail and one for when she recovered and was back to her normal weight when she got home may presented her mom with her fines. As matilda carefully tried on each dress may felt a surge of hope. She believed that her mother had enough new close to look forward to wearing. It would bring her back to health but the cancer progressed until finally. May's father told her that her mom was about to die may received the news in the middle of performance and after the curtain closed. She rushed home to be with her mother. Matilda passed away on january twenty. Sixth nineteen thirty at age. Fifty six may felt as her entire world had just crumbled. She was hysterical crying. Every minute of every day it was so bad that she almost quit performing altogether without her mother. Her best friend and biggest supporter. She just didn't see the point. Little did she know her career was far from over. In fact her next great success was right around the corner up next. A heartbroken may takes hollywood by storm and makes history too boot.

They approached may for a long term contract. This was how all the studios worked at the time. Each one owned a star who they could low now. That will but thirty nine year. Old may didn't like that idea. She didn't want to be the property of studio just like she didn't wanna be the property of a man. She negotiated with paramount for a short term contract and they agreed may was thrilled. Paramount brought may out to hollywood and put her up in an apartment building near the studio. They told her that they were just play. The script for her first picture night after night and she'd get it in no time at all but soon she realized that wasn't quite the truth. The script wasn't even finished. Paramount had signed may knowing that she wouldn't be able to work right away. They simply didn't want her going to a rival studio may was incensed. She threatened to pack up and leave right then. She didn't care about the money she just wanted to work. But her lawyer and manager jin timothy encouraged her to wait it out may listened kind of. She agreed to stay in los angeles but demanded that the studios send her the script and let her fix it. She told them she could get it done quickly. And then they could all move onto shooting thing. They handed over the draft with the stipulation that she could only change her part she agreed and then saw how small her part actually was so may rewrote her lines to ensure she made a big splash. This script revision led to one of may's most iconic film moments in her very first seen in night after night maze character. Mati triplet walks into a nightclub. It was mae west all the way from the rolling strut to the diamonds on every finger. Another character exclaims goodness. What beautiful diamonds and may in her deep seductive voice replies goodness had nothing to do with it. Dearie had the movies nineteen thirty two premiere. The line landed just as may had intended. The audience roared with laughter. Everyone loved as performance night after night so much so that paramount offered may a longer term contract and a chance to adapt diamond lil into a film. And of course this time may would star for most actresses that would have been more than enough but not for. May she wanted to write the script. Control the costume design and get paid handsomely paramount head adolph. Zocor gave her script and costume control. Then it came time to discuss her salary. He astor have much she wanted. She asked him how much he made in a year when he told her may said i want a dollar more and she got it. The deal wasn't just unheard of it. Was revolutionary never before had an actress had so much control over her own image or been paid so much and up to now may had made only one hollywood movie but she knew exactly how much she was worth when it comes to negotiating studies have shown women to be less successful than men there a variety of societal and psychological reasons for this but a recent study by researcher elaine. Hong found that things change when power comes into play in hong study whether or not a man felt. He had power made no difference in the outcome of his negotiations but the opposite was true with women. If a woman felt she had power she fared so much better at negotiation that any sort of gender gap completely disappeared because may had more social power than the average woman in the nineteen thirties. She felt entitled to more. This gave her the confidence to ask for more in doing so. She got what she wanted and shattered. All sorts of gender assumptions and stereotypes in the process may got to work writing the screenplay for diamond lil and searched for her leading man. There was no shortage of actors around town but mae west wouldn't settle for just any one. She needed the perfect co star. One afternoon on the paramount. Lot may reportedly caught sight of a young man. Walking down the street. She stopped dead in her tracks. He was the most beautiful man she had ever seen. Not her type exactly may preferred musclemen over pretty faced actors but she knew this man was exactly the type to light up the screen. She turned to her companion and asked who he was. Her friend told her his name. Cary grant granted only done a few small pictures but may didn't care about any of that nor did she care that he was eleven years younger than her. An age gap. That was usually flipped in men's favor. All she knew was that she wanted to cast him and no one said no to mae west diamond lil was renamed to she done him wrong and premiered in february nineteen thirty three and it was. Everything may have dreamed of first starring picture role. The film was a staggering commercial success. It had only a budget of two hundred thousand dollars but it made two point two million dollars at the box office today. That would be nearly forty five million dollars. It was just what the struggling studio needed. Only four months later paramount was back in the black with that film may became a true hollywood star and her leading man cary grant became one as well. They were so popular together that they start in another movie later. That year mae west wrote that one to called. I'm no angel. She played a lion tamer. Who sues her ex fiance for breaking off their engagement. The film was a hit with women who loved seeing may play a likable smart and independent woman. Who was beautifully dressed even while taming lions and cary grant was pretty easy on the eyes as well but not everyone loved. Mae west her double entendre 's and sexual innuendoes. Were drawing the attention of the censors. Who were gaining traction. In hollywood joseph ignatius breen was one of them the head of the hollywood censorship. Division and a dutiful catholic. He saw it as his responsibility to police. The film industry's morality. As far as he was concerned there was far too much violence and in pictures and it was affecting the children of america that included a worrying trend. He and others had seen in movies lately. Unabashed female sexuality. It seemed to be everywhere. Marlene dietrich kissed another woman in the nineteen thirty film morocco. Jean harlow played a social climbing woman. Who uses sex to get to the top in red headed woman but by nineteen thirty four. The actress who surpassed them all was mae. West other movies might have had a few scenes that bothered the moral reformers but may scripts had risque jokes on every page plus her lead characters were always fallen women who never seemed to learn a moral lesson. It drove the moral reforms crazy after much back and forth with the studios. The sensors finally one in july of nineteen thirty four. The production code administration opened its doors. The administration sole purpose was to regulate movie content and while hollywood bigwigs weren't thrilled with this development. It was better than the alternative federal oversight under the new production code also known as the hays code studios had to submit their scripts in advance. The hays office would mark it up with any changes they deemed necessary and then they trade script revisions back and forth with the studio. They fought over every caught or alteration until the hays office gave their final approval and when a script got final approval it couldn't be changed may have a hard time getting much by the censors. She started to put things in the script that would embarrass even her just so they would notice the lines she actually wanted to keep. It was a slow and subjective process and often may would be censored for things that other actresses could get away with just because she was mae west at last. Her success proved to be something of a liability by this time. Forty-one-year-old may was the highest paid actress in the us. In fact the only other american making more money than her was. William randolph hearst. But that just made her an even bigger target. The censors had made her public enemy number one and they were determined to bring her down up. Next may battles the censorship office. This episode is brought to you.

That was absolutely ravenous for more of her but not everyone loved her big personality or her unbridled sexuality moral reforms were set on regulating the movie industry and stars like may that they deemed immoral with the creation of the production code administration in nineteen thirty four. Everything changed maze. First film under the new code was a mess. She and the sensors fought over everything. Starting with the title it was originally called. It ain't no sin but after the sensors made a fuss paramount eventually settled on a new and sleep easier title belle of the nineties. The film was finally approved to be shot but after production it faced even more censorship during the editing process. The hays office decided the film needed a new ending. They wanted to see that the immoral woman had learned a lesson and seeing the error of her ways so paramount brought may and her co star into film a new ending where her character got married. The sensors were appeased but audiences were confused. The ending made no sense in the context of the movies story. Not only that. It was awful for maize image. She wasn't a woman who got married not in real life and not on screen. at least. That's what may wanted everyone to think for years now. Her estranged husband frank. Wallace had kept their marriage a secret but in one thousand nine hundred ninety five a month before her new film was released. A bomb dropped mae. West was a married woman. Frank had spilled the truth to the press he was strapped for cash and the revelation was the only thing he had to sow at. I made denied it. She tried to argue that. There were other mae west's and surely this was all a mix up but then the press found the marriage record with her parents details on it and there was no way for may to wiggle her way out. She had no choice but to admit to the marriage she called it a childish mistake and tried to push it behind her as if she could will it out of existence but the damage was already done. The mae west character and the real mae west were one in the same by this point and her entire persona was built around the idea that she was not bound to any one man. If the real mae west was married then what did that mean for the character. She played on screen. Forty two year old may tried to repair her reputation but it had already suffered a blow between the sensors whitewashing performances and the revelation of her secret marriage may seemed poised for a fall desperate to maintain her career may decided to go in the completely opposite direction for her next film she would show that she could be inoffensive in klondike annie. She played a woman who had seen the error of her ways and had become a missionary. But that didn't land well with audiences either. No one bought that may west had found religion and no one asked for that either. The allure of mae west was that she was a fun bad girl. The good girl version was far. Less entertaining may did two more films with paramount studios but her star was fading when her contract expired. They decided not to renew her. That opened the door for universal studios to approach her in nineteen forty they wanted old. May to star in my little chickadee with wc fields. She agreed hoping that the film might be the comeback she needed. The movie itself was successful and remains one of may's more well known films but she struggled in the role and felt out of place after all she was nearly fifty and was still playing the same character where other actresses could disappear into. Different characters may couldn't play any one but may west. She was trapped in the persona she had created and now that she was getting old at least by hollywood standards. She didn't know where she fit. There was no way she was gonna play. Someone's mother or god forbid grandmother so after one more lousy film made decided to change things up once again. This time she went to las vegas. Doing vegas act was like vaudeville over again. But this time as she sang and told jokes all around her stood oiled up. Muscleman wearing barely anything may have seen endless acts for men full of near naked women but now she wanted to give something to the ladies. The men in her act were all former. Mr universes or bodybuilding champions and according to may fudd over her constantly one day at a press conference two of them got into a fight. One insulted may behind her back and another bodybuilder. Paul novak came to may's defense. Paul punched the other muscle beating him up until he was on the ground and someone called an ambulance soon after sixty one year old may and thirty one year old. Paul became romantic partners. He was utterly devoted to her. As far as he was concerned he was placed on earth to take care of her but he never sought out the spotlight. He was content to stand at her side and she loved him for that they were happy together and live as a couple in. May's home in santa monica for years but domestic bliss wasn't enough to keep may from working for good in nineteen seventy seventy seven year old may returned to the silver screen to co star in myra breckenridge film. That ended up being something of a cult classic. She played exactly the same character. She had always played that inspired her to produce her final film. Eight years later in nineteen. Seventy eight at eighty-five may start in sex tat. A movie based on one of her earlier plays in the film. She plays a woman with six different husbands. Played by actors. Like tony curtis george hamilton timothy dalton and ringo starr all at least thirty years her junior. It's a campy movie by pretty much. Anyone standards but it was also maze last jab against social norms. She didn't care that she was eighty. Five she was still going to celebrate her sexuality. This went against the grain of how people believed a woman. Hurry age should act in a study on the depiction of the elderly and film researcher. Torbjorn built guard found that elderly sexual women are depicted as comical out of place or even dangerous. That's because audiences have a hard time understanding why an elderly woman even need sex. It's deemed unnatural but may believe that what we see on the screen should be a reflection of reality as an eighty five year old woman. She was still a sexual being who enjoyed the companionship of younger men and so she forged ahead with the film. It didn't matter to her that what she was doing was seen as provocative. She was just doing what she had always done. Eating female sexuality the only way she knew how sex tat was. May's final film in nineteen eighty years after its release eighty seven year old may passed away. Some people looked back on her career and saw an woman who changed the world. Forever others an exaggerated campy performer. Who was fun to parody but may never cared what anyone thought one way or another. She knew that she had accomplished what she had set out to do with her life. As she famously said you only live once but if you do it right once is enough may west did it for right.

looking forward to that may be getting out be safe please be considered feel those feelings polite neighborly things that come along with the holidays and i hope you have a wonderful wonderful celebration no matter how you how you celebrate music news we have and several stories to talk about today on the last episode i talked about these get up challenge which i have seen another video a longer video of the same guy it turns out that his name is i think ears you to channel is might even think he has a bunch of videos i haven't watched but he posted a longer video i think entire song of v get up challenge and it's still justice entertaining in the maze usually anytime you reach comments on something like that there's numerous terrible trolling comments and it's by and large they were very positive comments and 'em complimentary so i was very impressed but this long it self is a bible uncle brown an of course this comes after a little nod x who recently came out with old town road which they kind of a hybrid of country and rap will not act and billy ray cyrus but blanca brown who is behind get get up is so says that you know this is not a new thing he's been saying for years the country lyrics compared with trap sounds he is eight thirty four year old atlanta david natives teeth he had his first recor deal when he was seven years old which very impressive he later moved behind the scenes and began producing an when began when a movie or his movies music career kind of fell through his talent eventually landed him in rooms with pit bull fergie chris brown and other r b artists meanwhile he pursued his passion for country music on the side in twenty eleven his two worlds collided for the first time he recalls i pulled up in old country song input eight awaits on it it became so dope i would like this right here is next level after i got comfortable with and found in twenty twelve i started letting my friends here those record's they were like man you onto something em seven years later brown now has his own boundary pushing hit with the get up a tiny hanging feel good track that initiated viral dance craze things to instructional lyrics like

one hundred his son is currently sitting at number fifty one in its second week as the song keeps climbing up the chart chart brown did an interview with billboard about how the get up came to be and how it continues what old town road started so if you want to redo that article of course you can go and find that on billboard and he talks about 'em he talks about the song which never actually says the get up in the lyrics so where did the title come from and this is what i keep getting song title run i keep trend say the get down because in my head here down in it yeah but so the get up is dedicated to my grandmother telling us every morning get up go do something productive in the world it's more so about the message messages in my music bigger than anything to me is chasing your purpose in life i feel like i've opened up enough eyes and hearts and minds now that what i've always stood for is resonating resonating i i like that a lot you know it's a shot up to his grandmother in her words so if you do want to redo this article in you're in its entirety of course it on billboard in you could hear what he has just say what blanco brown has to say about the get up an old town road this sort of hybrid fusion crossing over of a country in rap and it's kind of fun end will see where this new fusion sort of genre takes us in the future speaking of sort of peripherally billy ray cyrus miley cyrus recently performed at the glastonbury festival an she performed as her black mirror persona ashley oh a so lavender dish lavender yeah lavender wig a very shiny shirt and she she transformed into her alter eagle on the stage and she had a few surprises during her concert at the glass mary festival in the uk which just ended it with five day festival she came out as ashley oh which was her character from the back black mirror season five episode rachel jack an athlete to 'em she's wearing a cap sparkling so i hide any pinkish purple maybe she performed on her role which is the song that's a little too catchy comfort considering the inspiration behind ashley we owe story if you haven't seen episode i'm not going to give anything away i just watched over the weekend with my husband i sometimes will let him get me sucked into black mirror with him some episodes i like up assode just creeped me out of this episode is actually pretty fun not always a huge miley fight miley cyrus fan but i thought you know great job in this episode it was with a good episode for her to be and it was 'em it's still have that that a bit of creep factor that black mirror always has but it was funnier than black mirror usually is so i appreciated that we were discussing the rise of holographic versions of artists prints and whitney houston in amy wine house which which is what black mirror producer charlie booker told e w v episode it's noticeable a notable these people austin pass away an extremely tragic circumstances they've been chewed up by the same industry and now they're being resurrected it's extremely ghoulish and we thinking of eight i to what if you could program something that could write like john lennon so that's kind of be you know i'm again i'm not going to ruin episode for you if you haven't seen it but thursday high there's a holographic there's some holographic images going on in so she came on and performed as ashley and i think that's pretty interesting but i don't get out much glastonbury festival sounds like it was a really fun and really interesting there's been a ton of articles about the performers a lot of articles on 'em kylie minogue in these very people that she had up on stage with her as she performed so sounds like it was a good time in like it's a five day a festival that just ended over the weekend in other news there's a new article in self magazine on atlanta's morissette that came out on june twenty six that popped up on something this morning looking at the very long article also take you know you take some time to sit down and read it if you're in a land morissette fan she is on forty five which makes sense 'cause she was popular when i was in college in fact she's one of the things we got me through college but she's forty five she is currently pregnant with her third child and so she talked about childbirth postpartum depression the me too movement movement music of course lee lee author made me laugh chipped in the beginning when she's talking about completely fan girling over they experienced there's a bunch of really beautiful pictures of her she's very pregnant she's eight months pregnant in these that's a photo shoot so lots of pictures of her kind of being pregnant and god is like an like i said if you're in atlanta's morissette fan or if you want to know maybe a little bit more about her it was interesting shifting reid again that would in self magazine and she talks about music in motherhood and 'em everything else she's she's kind of 'em if you don't know her she's she's a little crunchy and i say that because she came out in the nineties and crunchy what the thing she's she's just she's a very interesting person it can change july first it's canada day so it's appropriate to be talking about canadian on canada day right there is a ton of pictures home like oh my god there's just scrolling through the article again but i found it a an interesting m she talks a little bit about the the musical would be the broadway musical which is based on her first album jagged little pill and just you know kind of talked about is kind of a retrospective on her career but also what's going on with her now and all those great things so it's a really interesting article if you earn last fan or if you want to know more about her i enjoyed kind of that that throwback to my college years when 'em is college in the nineties was really interesting in midnight there's a lot of angry feminist and it produced a lot of really angry awesome music in some really interesting reading material and i'm not going to go off on a tangent on all of that but it made some really fun angry college years especially at a liberal arts college like i went to so on that note

the first segment be broadway musical based on a lettuce morris that's first album jagged little pill there've been a lot of these kind of musicals that have been on on and off broadway on this particular biographical show will be written by bohemian rhapsody scribe anthony mccartney and directed by tony winter winter michael meyer it is about the life and career of neil diamond and will debut on broadway it is currently 'em untitled but will center around score comprising of course diamonds biggest hits oscarnominated writer anthony mccartan will write the book well tony winner michael meyer will direct the show diamond said in a statement i've always loved broadway inspiration for many of my early songs came from shows like west side story my fair lady in fiddler on the roof so it seems only fitting to bring my songs to the great white way i'm honored and excited to be working with this great team so musical well chronicled diamonds rise from a port jewish kid in brooklyn to one of the most acclaimed unsuccessful singer songwriters in the world it will capture both the numerous setbacks and disappointments marches career as well the triumphs that came with such hits as sweet caroline america song sung blue and i've been this way before when i think of neil diamond i think of eight tracks because my dad had neil diamond on each trucks probably also had 'em neil diamond on final but when i think of my dad neil diamond i think of eight tracks you maybe never even used an eight track but they were so clunky they were they were interesting an interesting way to get music out very very quirky you think you think that's a clunky think caesar clunky eight tracks clunky but that's neither here nor there so some musical news from track to neil diamond just kind of actually pretty funny but they're a i'm fascinated by lv 'em broadly you know all the all the the not only the place but the movies or based on either biographical like rocket man or they are plays that are just made from a group music set to mama mia it's been around for quite some time but you know they just take the songs from me from the band or v these solo artist and kind of right around them and it's it's fascinating it's kind of fun to see a lot of music that either grew up with their my parents grew up with or what have you that is then turned into this different different way of of getting out to a generation that may or may not be familiar with the music so it's it's it's really fun we're gonna take our second break of the podcast and when we come comeback

always challenges happening on social media dolphin with not off and always with their own hashtag end one of these recent challenges is be bottle cap challenge don't know if you have seen hashtag or know what this is but it would spearheaded it's being you're headed by enemy fighter max hallway be challenger requires the participant to move the cap remove the cap of a bottle just by kicking it and my husband's honesty other day and i was downstairs and are house he was upstairs i think as far away like get from him and he was hollering at me to come up and watch this video 'cause he's a big enemy fan so peripherally i know a lot of fighters and it is amazing he then challenge john mayer take part next andy musician executed the feet flawlessly i'm curious to max holloway way in john mayer know each other are they friendly white house you know did he just choose a name out of a hat but so then diplo who admitted that no one requested me do this also decided to try his hand of the challenge kicking kicking off a water bottle cap with a view of the ocean in the backyard in jokingly requested prince harry and meghan markle kevin durant and brock obama tried the trend oh that's funny so then the question is which musician might take on the challenge next shawn mendez apparently commented on mayors post with enthusiasm so you know maybe he will be the next one you could see eight 'em you could you could just you know type hashtag bottlecaps challenge and see who has done it so far definitely check out max holloway's version first because it's amazing than i did my husband showed it to me and then he was giving me crap how if i could get my leg up that high i'd probably mess and kick him in the head because well on a klutz one in my depth perception socks to so will not be kicking be capped off of the bottle anytime soon but if you wanna try it goes okay i would i'd be interested here and then say going into are final story of these podcast 'em if you aren't familiar with us billie holiday she is an iconic jazz singer at amazing amazing voice in amazing talent and there is an article out today by john goldberger goldberg excuse me any idolaters on idolaters on the entitled a rough life in a beautiful voice jazz i can't believe holiday if you are a fan of hers or if you wanna learn more about hers her this is a really interesting article kind of like what i'm talking about what they land on mars that article those this one talks about someone who is no longer with us she has she has a pretty amazing story she came from a very hard life and 'em just there there's some horrible you know some some not not great thing happened to her when she was growing up but music it turns out in her voice specially 'em pretty well pretty much saved her it changed her life she she went to jail and after she was released from jail should look for other ways to earn an income and got her first paying gig as a performer at a club club 'em eventually she was able to you know get a career start a career as a singer 'em her emotional performances struck a chord with people there's some really amazing pictures in this article also i wanna give you i don't wanna just you know kind of beat everything to you but her vocal style has been described as steel edged end yet soft in side she was very unique and people loved her for fat a critic once described her singing as steel edge and yet soft inside of voice would almost unbearably wise in disillusion and yet still childlike again at the center and her at that time her songs were very unusual in these thirties she met some people who altered the course of her life it turns out and she she's sort of you know singing clubs and then she made history as an african american singer there are pictures in here of her with louis armstrong m and just just sorry i get i get sidetracked but just some really fascinating facts about billie holiday if you are a fan of hers or if you are interested did in finding more about her she had a it sounds like a really hard life as often happens with 'em iconic performers like that you know hurt her life is hard growing up in in some time you know austin a heart childhood could need to continuing difficulties throughout life and it sounds like that was the case for billie holiday but she she did receive 'em for grammy awards posthumously for best historical album she was inducted into the grammy hall of fame in nineteen seventy three diana ross played her in the nineteen seventy two film ladies things the blues an believes the state is estimated to be worth fourteen million dollars in twenty fourteen she is is it really a fascinating character not character person on more you know i i'm actually going to redo this article again because i know a lot about billie holiday except steps that she had this amazing unique voice and she was you know she really did make history in a lot of ways so if you are interested in a you know a little music history if you're interested in jazz the jazz performers then you might want to check out this article again as i said it 'em is on a site called i delatour andy author is jenna where is that i'm scrolling as fast as i can hang in there with me jonah goldberg it is and it was published today so i think it might be time to do diana ross i'm sure doesn't amazing job but maybe it's time for a new elite holiday a biopic or maybe i should just find a good biography auto biography and reads that so i can learn more about her and now that i've noticed my toe in and learn more the night or previously new by this article so maybe not my typical story but i am fascinated with history and i'm fascinated with people for me it's always the people behind everything history that you know i

network i know that our pride month care the corners outlets featuring some of the bigger more notable moments of lgbtq representation in big to comic books of course not comprehensive one because we can't do a show that long to there's gonna be another month next year hashtag contents now i know what you're thinking well it's been a long long times i heard deep home on the mike we had a finals and we had a stanley cup finals and we had nbs go insane and tonight as you listen you're gearing up to the draft who better to leads you into embiid referee knows nothing about the prospects saves zion then myself or not gonna start the draft start at the end anti in the last time we checked in be on the court that is the toronto raptors were mbh champions and you could say what you will about 'em you're asterik injuries but hey that's that's the way the cookie crumbles this is a team that's been tested that's been pushed that has push others and has stepped up and step through they gambled last summer they gambled on quiet leonard leonard a lot of people were scared off boston new york a lot of people said i don't wanna trade for one year deal we can't assume a paul george falling in love with the place is gonna work what serrano said was even if it doesn't work and we can't you say let's maximize one of the best players in the world and get him on are team and by god they paid off for only three players and everyone be finals mvp the two teams only one player has ever done in two different conferences till also group quiet leonard is the only player to i think in recent memory have a direct ten in the murder of two actual real life dynasties see what you about miami was a micro dicey and having quickly but they went to four straight finals and i don't think anyone in the world would tell you these worst team wasn't a dynasty that coal for the might of the claw it's really interesting to see his personality emerge over the last last few days and weeks before net quiet leonard while the robot the robot with a very very very very very funny side and he might just be met with a jump shot a wrestling fan you might know what that means all but no it's been great watching quiet leonard kind of emerge not just in the playoffs but i get outside of the playoff everytime push about his free agency kind of dimmers you give any clear answers yes or no i like that about him like these you know allowing the team aligned himself allowing the city in the nation of toronto a toronto in canada to breathe and kind of enjoy this win before we deal with the business of basketball that could cover these other things some of the great stories coming out of this obviously is redemption of kyle lowry calories in the victim of many a joke for many reasons for the last a couple of years but i'll tell you what a play in game six down the stretch is really kind of inspiring a i got the jokes off when he got his shot blocked by dream on i know the block but the jokes did not come down because that's the way the internet works i guarantee kyle lowry knows that hat tip to nick nurse first year coach who he's fine coach he's fine but you know it's interesting the see you know just however she says handle such a situation coming in saying runnerup place one of those loving players in franchise history demar derozen with someone who had been scored in the media an by m mb front offices for not playing last year because he did not believe his body will heal and did not want to abdicate responsibility of his own health to a team doctor who is more interested in successive the team then of the health of the player will talk more about that in a second but a little by famous story out of toronto so far has been the fact that pascal seok on that fred ad aj frederick as amended defense leaked which is amazing name i would demand ago by fred but that's just me i'm a crazy person they were actually teammates on indie hdl championship team one of those jobs in the audience tonight they won the championship in pascal's yakim one mvp one nick nurse it's a pretty cool story no matter how you cut it and while i had a good time talking about the winners and talk about how they got here we all know what the real story is what kind of the biggest news of the finals was save toronto so in drake doing whatever toronto injury to the golden state warriors and i know that a lot of finger pointing and a lot of blacks were being covered by familiar and someone say amicable news outlets saying oh this is a freak accident nobody could have been known but as you watch more and more of this unfold the kevin durant injury looks like one thing to me and it does tiny what i mentioned about quiet leonard it's did he trust the teams words so the team indeed told him as a reporter by that's been told us about bob myers end by steve kerr that his injury was such that it could not hurt worse yet the ask yourself what that means because he went from in game three in for not being cleared to practice to being dreamland frigging five minutes restriction now will get into what i think actually happened but let's go with the best case near the best case scenario is that indeed the team said to him before game five look it's torn you're accuses gone and it's gonna go we need surgery rep prepared to have surgery on anyway so we might as well do what you can in that case i probably wouldn't have played in eleven or twelve out of the first fourteen minutes but that's again i know people that's terrific that's where bears that may be what happened i'm not a high level athlete never really was but i did play college sports i did see wondering to accuse you popped in my lifetime end when you watch him go down against houston and he doesn't grab his calf much lower in the intervening weeks between the houston series in game five that ice you know where you're cabs all right people the right below you're knees and that any lessons by people ice what's below the cats and there's gonna be conspiracy theories end proclamation people did water who knew what when rivers the government grassy knoll from however mall in there should be because there's two very soon conversations you're the first one from pure basketball perspective holy shit you change the league this is a player who is rumored to be taken super max money to be going problem we the brooklyn as the rumors of kind of or out but you know your cat hope as they often do hope is alive but that's gone now kevin durant even go to a new team in this off season with his injury better question just kevin rick trust this training staff riana he did watch them and how they handle booking all year we don't know how he feels about we do know that day greenlee didn't play and people say well do you wanna play i get that you wind up playing game for klay thompson held him out with a strained hamstring strain hamstring not a calf rose from of a strained hamstring you know why they held up a strained hamstring because he's in investment they've got money into they have future years klay thompson if let's say does say there were no new contract signed today they've got clay thompsons rights they never had kevin durant's going forward they were trying to maximize an expiring massive sounds like hedge fund talk congratulations that's what happens when hedge fund guys take overly nb hedge fund guys take over things about people and make them numbers on a spreadsheet i've heard more about danny engines mismanagement of assets and it's very little analysis of what the fuck is wrong there because of the people involved with that clay sitting one game and then kevin ray coming back after a month yeah they'd like kevin i feel i feel pretty good confidence they lied kevin especially when you look at someone like jay williams who is actually hosting you kevin durant's kind of the shop equivalent only it's been a streaming service he's hosting that he's close to both kevin ring in his agent in get wins on it's been it's been excoriated the warriors front office in management in coaching and i'm not saying he's doing it's on the command of katina's camp but i am saying that if you're that close you don't say these things are feeling without knowing more the average fan but they lie and he tourist industry or tories accusing him in klay thompson the robot go up there and says i'm gonna play in tears ac i wanna lay you've been humbled that shoot the free doesn't case you could play some more in reports were at the time klay thompson is doing jumping jacks in sprint thing in the tunnel and everyone told you look at this guy's a warrior all i heard was looking at this fucking medical malpractice continuing doing here if you didn't have questions about how certain star players first certain warriors teams had the go outside the organization their ankles fix questions now in reasonable ones in the righteous just ones in the ones that are gonna go away until after you want it and so this is the thing you said you want it you said you wanna kinda shy the weight eight you believe they say that you're own menu kerryon team know who's gonna kevin and get things done you ain't you buddy good luck covers somewhere that later in the show but it's interesting because this wasn't championships assigning a little hiatus the bruins one shooting oh i'm so used to saying boston teams winning things and so much more fun the saint louis blues birthplace of my little brother no one cares about that me when i tell you what the saint louis blues won the stanley cup for the first time in team history and you know what since they started counting ratings of stanley cups highest rated you could say oh it's a traditional here in boston then when you point two percent louis could it be all of us warning watch boston lose or could it be the stanley cup games are by far particular the finals is the most one you could have watching sports the most one bar none hands down no questions that i applaud the lose the bankruptcy of the bruins and make everyone destroy the boston teams in their life now when the bruins won their game they want it for one if you keep doing the blues when the blues when they want it for going on boston dies there you're gonna hurt a fucking pin drop i loved it but one of the things i saw the worst when they went up for nothing they celebrated in noone said it was classes over done for goals why you pouring it on a couple of nights ago i get braves stuff on my new speakers on prison the braves fans 'cause they're old and you know having that could still mike maccagnan old friends and you just but what they did was they hung about thirteen in the mets i want to highlight the guy's a fist pumping five in hand they're excited thirteen up when you us women's national team did it start pool play in the world cup everyone had a problem classless who when necessary bad sportsmanship you both teams in the video appreciated it that they liked the respect that showed them and that inspired the better the second gamble play uscca's free nothing we're halftime and that goal if she says fuck in that noise we don't score against the hack and it's not like putting the ball in the net she just turned up her game because when you're faced with a better opposition as a competitor you're for system if you're game how did that become a global sport we roll the ball ninety two chuck taylor fused coney timeout christian leader got everybody a bunch of water in the dream team worked the world there's likely mvp is young the people whose name i can't pronounce because i'm a stupid american but because the game went global he's hear people say oh you can't go global the game expand and you don't know if that's quarterback i know it's good you know how i know it's been the best in the world anywhere what's what's the next question you're gonna be only questioning whether you're going to be a everyone's go basketball from japan to new york make the league maybe now you maybe some people have real stations the first time you don't go out there and say look at me i'm standing on the way when someone says something nice no we all did the thing in are front yards on the basketball court three to one and some of us may have seen outside way too long shots telling me has basically hit closer closer until the way i have another jumper anymore i'm the hit a judge me or you i'm just telling you how basketball appealed to the masses they did not do it by taking it easy on in go they beat the dog shit on the people publicly and they couldn't get around barcelona while they did it know saint paul other countries and maybe it's i hate the thing is just garden variety massaging but i do know that when the uscca is good at anything no tells michael tells the slow down in the pool you beat him too bad michael no one there is no conversation on national media if the braves were embarrassing the mess but we pretend that it's gonna be athlete athlete who generates just as much money at the gate at the usa men's national team is instantly more successful in does so with the lack of reach of the propaganda gained in machine and what do i mean so when you talk to people supporting it in advancing it not just within are borders but globally they gotta have a serious conversation with themselves about what do they actually care about where do they spend their time and where do they spend their money wj a long time there's a loss leader for them yet but it's amazing the ratings have gone up as public awareness is risen so as you increase the publication tation in me support for the league become it's not if you build it they come they will come if you build it in you tell them about that's when they call that's when you're sport pops in nazi answer next round usa swings at the time losing this in thursday the heads of the next round of course maybe the knockout stage so as three but and everyone's saying this to play a game doesn't matter the dryer drier they draw they win they leave top of fruit i'll tell you this this usa swimming national team was eight they won the world cup in two thousand fifteen two thousand sixteen they got knocked out i believe in the quarters olympics by this sweden team three years ago the steam as ever gotten you want if you're a fan of soccer and you don't wanna watch the draft tonight i guess when this is being aired on thursday that's the game you'd watch now i gotta back in the final minutes of everything in the world then it's official kickoff wire rewatch season 'cause i don't watch baseball and i haven't started i'm starting to think follow me on twitter at people and six so i'll figure out a hashtag some stories that were kind of lost in the finals and i do wanna bring up and give some some air to if you're in the stands up in india gave you the stance of an nfl game if you're in the stands about hockey game baseball game there's one thing i think we could all agree on keep you're mother fucking hand you're mother fucking self and really wants all like honestly const without consent keep answer so however if you're in a situation where you know baby or i dunno nominally minority owner of a basketball team in a player has the temerity the following year you're not on you but here you you might feel a deep privilege an anger necessary to put their hands that player mb i said you know you're gonna not be welcome in new arena free refinery some money with enough money i don't think so the thing is safely probably but a it's it's uncharted territory honestly this is one of those ones where i i'm glad anytime buddy acted quickly i'm kinda glad the sponsor so good so we moved on but it also addresses this is a sport where there's the least amount of distance between athletes and me attendees n as in particular the hughes oakland is a test case as certain types of attendees certain people certain socioeconomic groups or price out there being a place of people who aren't used to being told no and sometimes that privilege signifies itself by doing the last game of or in oracle and having a leap senior train sing the national anthem that's true look it up or maybe manifest itself by saying you know run in san francisco and it's not gonna matter new all i know is a battle buddy lost money i'm glad he lost at sea opelousas team and keep brands yourself like it must be really real everyone who's watched kyle lowry basketball lights i like it wasn't a push kyle lowry like it in my heart of hearts i've already done shiver like oh so it's a shove you can't you can't do there's a big gap between having a thought including her hands on other human beings don't bridging the gap so after i don't think it's big joe in fruit flies friends friends you may have seen me on twitter going someone say a little overboard about this story i say that because if you're watching the pregame show before the final games you saw this in publisher tried to tamper down oda napa took the director paul we saw you say we saw you say we think we see you if you're asking what i'm talking about well gather around ginsburg depot story time because in the two thousand eight mb finals paul pierce went down paul pierce went down end band could not get up he asked white ardently for a wheelchair to get him off the court is game one of the finals in one of my longest standing favor embiid rumors was confirmed and tell them paul pierce admitted on national television many victims now i can't say it's true accident in general i could totally say is true of course paul pierce proved himself in literally make sense in of course that's what happened that this is been a longstanding like rumor in mbh for years that pulp here's who as you remember famously was carted off and then ran back on the court as someone who i dunno dropped a lot of weight in a in a hurry where do you stand looked at the camera no one asked him knowing brought it up no talking about what they wanna say two thousand eight when i went down in the wheelchair 'cause something flipped out johnson says one or two and he says i'd rather not discuss it now you know and he said oh i was joking with a joke you don't make jokes about very specific conspiracy theorist and armpit widespread like if anyone who comes out and like i can see there's a subset of people who like cd fall he's trolling you and i'm like no no no he's admitting you can see like i don't see why people wouldn't trust this paul pierce saying i put myself self i tell you guys a lot of this by guys i share things i brought my wife to the show i brought my friends i put my family on this show i can promise you one thing podcast if i ever put myself in public you'll either know immediately or never there's no in between me idea that a lemon years to the day published just like you know what i'm gonna make this everyone's gonna know i'm kidding no no paul paul where's the poop the answer is celtics fans but yeah they may change is taken age drastic change should be a finals when did this start in hell well certainly east landscaping he's really hinges on why like everyone's kind of waiting for this why decision the rumors he's gonna leave that the clippers on the shortlist i know there were members of i don't believe lakers rumors will talk about that and the the traverse share market is a dime store rob lowe's man is really being a lakers in a second but yeah there's really no way he do anything because look at these honest of contenders the the buster kind of counting on m the continued development of the freak which i guess passing db forget that jump shot a very often some hurdles chris middleton opted out looks like he's going for the mac somewhere hopefully back in milwaukee you look at philly they don't know what's up jimmy butler also ten you blow that up is it time you know they got over because all the hand wringing that's happened people who didn't roofer why if that ball bounces three times instead of for the sixers go to the next round two bucks so three nothing instead of falling behind falling up to one they probably win that series a lot of things broke the broncos way and i'm not one practical things happen to where they happen you can't listen i didn't but i think it's interesting that because of the way happened because of who won a lot of teams particular these different crossroads like i said the raptors don't know what's going on they've got people who bring back in time it got pushed her co why maybe somebody could be sustainable convincing instead paul george and like i said earlier oh the wizards those ardoz they have new gmc truck snakes tonight drive that is thursday june twentieth and they have no jim they're making a run of messiah jerry what's what's the deal is in place that story free kim week because now you've wasted a week on a story that was floated for a man who's not coming to you and if he does come will do so after the draft very damning decision by them but when you get some bad decisions i start i endorse in east because you're just hate to see it but there's a new unfamiliar with you why that is the smugness of boston sports media end the boston celtics the last few years well i'm gonna catch you up danny aines has been is a former player who's been touted as h rooted negotiators who values quote unquote assets when i was a kid he calling people but if either here or there is cultivation asset this collection as always allegedly preamble to acquiring a franchise defining player i know that a couple of years where people were kind of thinking questioning second guessing this this method but the second they're able to trade some picks the brooklyn picks an isaiah thomas were corrupt why irks me kyri were like okay that's the first step the next up is always gonna be similar incidents let's be honest people who've had next year's free agency circled on the calendar for years because they want a shot at a generational player who is as thomas recording a hundred days out of being twentysix he's less than a hundred and twenty six love under nasal is a very young players thomas game wasn't who had injury problems in three three years of injury concerns or bit overblown in my opinion but if you've been paying attention in danny danny something genius that his media friends would have you think he is way danny genius 'cause he fleeced really came you can read eighty percent of america welcome the minnesota where do we doing here billy king seems on the wrong side of so many bad it'd be adrian i do think hiring should be considered about practice and the owners should be fired from the league i don't have that power yet but telling you that if we build a king and then i wouldn't dumping a bunch of twelve year old like congratulating that seven year old that's really key in a gm says don't know nice man then i was told that this coach who biggest accomplishments was over achieving at butler with underachieving town which is literally not the job of it mbh coach i would throw he was a genius the boy wonder he would sit from heaven the teachers had a coach basketball in this new paradigm in his future i don't see it that doesn't allow stories being written but i wanna work on i wanna hone in on one from jackie macmullan where she talked this morning on 'em i believe i believe i can't remember the reality which your report this morning we're gonna park as i said look the reporting i've done says that he left turn to the celtics if you will began earlier the season when they were forcing minutes on the gates gordon hayward and you could say oh no this is just a coach looking welcome back an injured player and working in the rotation and that's one breeding of it my rating is a coach who's got one of his players from butler will soon a security blanket and says look i'm gonna force him back in a regular this 'cause that's the guy the best how the coach they look everyone the wrong way it was the beginning of the all the backbiting and walkers only exasperated by the fact attorneys he's a weirdo the job even be a head coach is a call plays in managed personality he's calling plays fine but it feels like he's overmatched in the personality game because not only are you losing carrier not only is coordinated or not back to one percent but also reports of saying oh horford out people telling me we go there's no way out horford doesn't off then you've got thirty guaranteed coming his way deep paul you're not those people now because not only is he opted out he's campus broken off talks with danny age they're not even in the same room they're not even playing the same sport is out once ring and he's smart enough to look around and say there's nothing here that gets me to a ring on the boston celtics producers said no the thirty million dollars keep that in mind with ever dealey sides i'm very see the markets were out horford i hope it somewhere the four year i hope he i hope he signs over used to be security that is looking for out of the next year more than anything else on a cigar 'em it's just weird man if you're gonna be damn crazy on next year but not as crazy as so we start at the top we start with the warriors were bringing back a steph curry is gonna have kerry await is never ask scary and also dream on green who is probably the best still the best when he's on all round defender the league but he's also coming to a contractor is gonna be gunning for some money somebody that might be earmarked first injured teammates and you look at all this and i didn't go back to this you go to bob myers very teary press conference after game five he began with him tearfully sort of explaining what happened by using words and phrases that are on recor saying they're experts most william arise multiple doctors could do play by collaborative decision that sounds like like corporate executive mad is it sounds like the same press conference you get a bunch of crude oil was up on the gulf of mexico if you have to consult with enough doctors but you've come to a collaborative decision maybe shouldn't do that i get it bob last show right gotta get their money's worth right last maybe the last push this franchise right and i don't think kevin durant was prompted by the media but i do think that if a player says they're injured players that could will play don't talk shit media don't question their motives no question there film it and don't question their top of us don't do it irresponsible and that's how we got that is legitimately why we're here and again i don't think is influenced by but i think he created a culture in a climate where even entirely some of his teammates were asking hey if you plan on the collarbone in clay sort of place in his hamstring how hurt is kevin real dancer pretty fucking hurt and i tell you what somebody's gonna be crazy next year is watching the warriors try to do this with just steph curry one of v more unfortunate problems with south korea is that he's born when he is which means invariably he's gonna drawn comparisons to probably the best basketball player of all time lebron james and because this is happening i gotta say things like this we look at potential few go ahead dubose in the playoffs in the final twenty four seconds of the fourth quarter and overtime one look that's overnight anes that's not good an he's had a chance to sanford final is the kind of take over defined the finals any kind of wealth in those moments so you know the braun is nine twenty tony one of those series in that situation forty two point nine percent from the field which is by far the most of anyone who qualifies as a number of shots just in case you're wondering if hashtag lebron was clutch but i think this is kind of not what he needed definitely not what he needed it's not what you want it but it's what it's gonna happen in golden state fans they've done a lot of good job i'm you see i feel like you know he was the one who did everything it's lebron james and people say oh they only the title of injuries you gotta remember they only one other ones because of injuries to the first title you're gonna tell me that not having kyri or kevin love and having the second play the best player on the cows be something called matthew della vedova didn't matter that matter the first title katie their injuries all over the place there last year they barely squeak by the rockets who had their number because of an injury to chris paul so i think while people say oh asterik all of this this is the way the cookie crumbles when you're there a lot when you're in this space a lot this is the way things couldn't go free end with that knowledge without ability and you understand look man didn't break garwin so semi steph contract you're dream on an assortment of pieces because about sixty million dollars cap space is gonna wearing suits all next year maybe we see clay back in march but i i'm what for who for fucking what we say oh look the rockets almost beat them two years wrote this is the time for the rockets said not so fast my friend because daryl morey like you're boy danny ainge just one of these asset guy he doesn't see people's people's he's assets and what happens with that is when you draft underperform you lash out at the ss not the main cream in a mirror is the worst and you're gonna own apparently the gm daryl morey decided to antagonize their coach are firing his entire staff and low volume an offer he does all this before the injuries beset by the warriors i think that's very important and i do not think he does these things if post a brain injury in dublin that post clay injury because now you've got a disgruntled coach doesn't wanna come back you got chris paul openly bitching in the media about demanding a trade end their people notice counteroffer the bus tests this was never going to work to ball dominant guys and yes chris paul is smart enough to suffocate his game for some other people but an end the season was kind of a tipping point for because win all this went down when we chris got hurt earlier this year james harden is gonna run where he only score he was he often teams everything end didn't really work i mean worked at one of the games he kinda bounced sacramento slow from a slow a start but it's where it was then when chris comes back in january he's on that we were not still gonna be doing the show i'm back now in hardens like man got this you get the ball when i'm tired of dribbling or also by the way when you get the ball i'm not gonna moving off the ball hungry standing still getting my win back some i made all know that remember the hope you guys and the drive it's basically make life harder for everyone else who's not named james art here's this rosen this makes sense the counterpoint is he is a member of be nfl ph management committee who helped develop a rule that would make sure that you guys have been at ten years and they we himself in the bronx over the supermax contract which is why him demanding a trade is hilarious because chris paul do might say thirty four year old short can't shoot can't defend point guard who is being paid thirty million dollars next year in forty million dollars a year after that yeah so whatever team gets brought up there in this fall for a the rockets i'm here to watch because that's just gonna be crazy town lakers have returned excellence because let's be honest the kind of wasting that first year of the brawn james i'm tired of people said honestly even as i said i would describe myself being wasted using them i just way possible they saw this team has constructed around the brawn james wasn't gonna get it done and then when people say oh that was a good guys magic johnson watcher centrally kids may jones in the interview last summer about the signing of last season about something's up rondo who actually know through till about mike but those signings with other places ross that's not shooting magic johnson says you want tough it's not shooting which is stupid not smart and so now the lakers are gonna be going into the season something that no other team has ever had on anytime the browns played for them lebron james who has an entire spring off you should take more time off because of the injuries the growing as evidence by the hitler violations i came out after the season but also lebron james doesn't have an extra twenty twentyfive games on the dollar he plays well he may ninth straight finals the warriors made five and we were million burnley nine no that's crazy it's crazy and so it's gonna be very interesting 'cause you're gonna be revitalized play alongside by far the greatest teammate he's ever had and it's the perfect common repeat this isn't like 'em he ends waiver he incur kyri this is eight pick you're going to share teen with the pick and roll finisher into the best six players in the league on same team isn't a lot of hand wringing him and hiring how they build a team around it well i don't trust 'em overgrown joe rob lowe a politico i think the situation where you saw in miami where people were taking pay cuts to play with the same idea oh you're more future no they didn't they guaranteed it twenty two anthony davis is the future give me a prime is generally particular big man twenty seven to thirty one thirty two we haven't seen the best of anthony davis and go why were they showed them this year he was having a better statistical season then he did the year before it's gonna be very interesting and very telling and see what they decide do bills around them but i from one here for pelicans help they made slashes where everything they acquired everyone says oh they got their picks up the the the lakers one based on those not being good takes into what do you really getting that these things are not argue that the tony tony to i believe is a valuable pick because we're get the double drafted that's the first year i think that the intersections lifted so that's very interesting but the pels against the double drought that year but yeah i don't i i think it's interesting exciting i don't know if they keep all those players i dunno brandon ingram is cleared to play you is basically in the last season into blood clots i've heard nothing that would say a it's it's it's taking care of now just ask questions to us well so we owe this week just happened today the jazz got like only the jazz are immediately much better basketball team and immediately contenders in the west because the west is why fucking open daryl morey is in period but it's true i know what had happened i think it was around the decision time maybe a couple of years before that when the knicks including cap space to court lebron in twenty ten because i'll tell you this at some point in my lifetime mbh became a twelve month season dnb india became a three sixty five have the jump on everyday in austin type of season and then yeah wait why is he nfl it's only a twelve hour talking about season because they're all seasons not phone like this and when it is usually bad like in cleveland were baker mayfield has taken it upon himself to be leader guy veteran guy money guy guy guy in call out duke johnson and his financial dispute with the team do jobs is asking traded the team's not gonna be acquiesce looks like at least not now and baker says that's his problem probably isn't going to be it'd be here long it'd be here you wouldn't be it's not or if she would no one is awkward you wants to leave he's he's here now he's going for older players at a pull baker side like we don't do that here young buck we don't talk about other people's money in this is gonna go wanna do is they doubled down and being the guy guy and he's gonna need a locker crew showed a lot of those low heathrow's last year may have actually been lock and when you see how much they regressed of the mean when they put in a position coaches new head coach freddie kitchens is already said the wrong thing tours at times in the media regarding odell beckham you're most talented where you're gonna see ibra one little bit bill bush now it's gonna go will see 'em but hey you know what that's not even the biggest news in football right now because mother fuckers we've got the raiders on hard knocks and i don't watch hard knocks as eighteen i might watch this year guys like this year like they got some real like this is the one where i'm like oh so this may be using a deposition in one day like someone could end up deposed in israel will be part of the whole proceeding you look at what they brought in their look at who's running it two guys who are not unfamiliar with the other side of the camera mike mayock and jon gruden it almost feels like this is the plan i hope was and i hope that i think it's nine more user bruton didn't just say were gonna be hard knocks team but honestly with vegas next year maybe they are maybe these like look we wanna own hard knocks lock bringing some revenue become america's team because guess what every home game for the raiders in las vegas is a road game because people were flying to vegas and then pay it back and para falcons game with the vegas strip yeah i'll do that i'll do that i mean they're gonna go fund me some shit maybe you got people that are myself in that way specific way hurting selves eighteen games it's come up again guys everytime the cpa's up in negotiation which he embarrassment nfl it's gonna come up i'm telling you right now this is not going to happen it's not it can it's irresponsible does 'em and they're gonna try to like make some some boston want some other things to make it look better eighteen games can't happen with the preseason games never going away that's revenue the put the owners like rather see other resolve it but eighteen games i started i believe that this is just too much anybody hope you guys enjoyed this podcast we'll be back on

"From meat eaters world news headquarters bozeman montana elicits kells weekend review with right joe kelley now here's scale and alabaman's meth fueled attack squirrel has been safely released into the wild of course it doesn't look like the squirrel is given math if you've been following the story of a multi type felony man in alabama you know all about these nuts which is the name of the pet squirrel in question fun side no i actually have a friend whose email account far into adulthood was these nuts at hotmail dot com if you still got that email please write him and tell him to grow up you've got mail anyway these associated press interviewed the felon while i was on the loose somewhere in limestone county alabama limestone county is just on the outskirts huntsville alabama if a geographical markers needed local officers were warned ahead of executing a search warrant the lookout for the man's map dose pet squirrel trained to attack on command authorities were unable to confirms the squirrels bad math an oddly enough the previous this owner denied the allegations of feeding the squirrel math on a facebook video taken while he was still on the lam he was apprehended after eventually ending a high speed chase by ramming another vehicle with a stolen motorcycle if having multiple felony warrants high speed jason possible animal cruelty doesn't sound bad enough it is illegal to keep a squirrel as a pet in alabama as a kid were always told smoking pot is the gateway drug the math now i guess we know what math is the gateway drug to illegal possession of a squirrel named these nuts this week we're gonna talk about rainbow trout artist fox is food do some really cool stuff about wildlife and independence day but first i'm gonna tell you about my we i went down that big awesome snake river country just south of yellowstone national park medical some friends a celebrate the willful giving up of independence freedom general carefree living the marriage you know a bachelor party not mine a friend of mine we had a great crew great camp say we cooked up crispy mountain lion car nita's there was some find portuguese wines wines imported by the bachelor himself so you know checkout seato wind distributing here in the state of montana if you do maybe i won't happen by wedding gift and remember enjoy responsibly on top of the food and wine we finished hard for two days at the boat launches at the south fork we noticed freezers tricked out as rainbow trout fish head receptacles the story behind these nifty setups is this idaho fish and game would like anglers kill rainbow trout in order to give the native cutthroat drought some room to breathe or reproduce rather in order incentivize anglers to kill rainbows idea of ge captures an estimated six percent of the rainbow trout population each winter implants tags in their heads and then release them thinking those tags is winning lottery tickets any angrier we're who turns in the tag head of rainbow trout idaho fish and game wins between twenty and a thousand bucks in turn those collected trout heads give up a lot of important information to the biologists idaho fishing game so everybody but he wins except rainbows of course idaho fish and game also kohl's rainbows by official years and shocking anglers are only a piece of the puzzle cutthroat trout is one of the very few native trout species in u s in the snake river variation defined spotted cutthroat is in a bit of trouble remember the movie braveheart when king edward the first says the problem of scotland is it's full of scott if we can't get them out will breed them out at the abbreviated version of that quote that's basically what's happening down in the south fork the snake instead of english lords trend breed the scott scotland got rainbow trout breeding the cutthroat trout out of the south fork of the snake rainbows are prolific and they hybridize with cutthroat producing lots of rainbows and lots of hybrids or cut both when i say lots the two thousand eighteen fish count came in at in astonishing six thousand two hundred and fifty three fish per mile that's more than a fish fish per foot of those about half were rainbows bose this is an abbreviated synopsis of the south fork situation here on the weekend review please check out an indepth article written by meat eaters own sam lundgren called shocking shocking off suppressing rainbow trout on the south fork of the snake river issue i wanna address here is a social one not so much about fish but about fisherman i spoke with a bunch of anglers on this trip interviewer none too pleased with efforts by the state to reduce rainbow trout numbers in some of these anglers beard downright displeased with yours truly vocalizing my desire to help out with those efforts to reduce rainbow trout numbers they like catching rainbows i get it i like catching rainbows fisher fisher fund a catch and if you happen to be a fishing guide more fish provide more opportunity for a successful day on the water an better tips but think of this anglers can go damn near any place in the world the cats rainbow trout according interview as gs rainbows have made it all fifty states including hawaii as well is puerto rico and the virgin islands further afield rainbows are thriving in south america africa asia australasia which is a nifty term for australia new zealand and those other big ass silence oh into europe in all maybe a hundred and twenty countries the fine spotted cutthroat however only exists in the south fork of the snake river so all my angling friends out there whether you're in the guide seat or just pitching flies and spoons on evening float we as a people have something special with this fish step up and protect your resource in the tastiest way possible smoker rainbow or health frat that's what i did pam fried but before i did the cooking i love their heads off put them in a plastic bag provided by the state idaho along with my license info and contact information and dropped all that in one of those aforementioned incheon fancy freezers rigged up as rainbow trout head receptacles believe me you'll know if one of my fish ads brings in cash price moving off new land speed world record's has been set if you're a competitive type relax this record's species pacific to eric fox young female artist fox fitted with a radio collar i should actually tell you female fox is called the vixen so you could say a young nixon fitted with the satellite transmitter matter traveled from norway canada in seventy six days that's a distance of two thousand one hundred and seventy five miles likely in an attempt to find both food in a suitable meet the fox average about thirty miles a day from spitsbergen norway ellesmere island canada spitsbergen is located on the small barred archipelago for those of you not up to speed on you're geography terms an archipelago is a cluster of violence the longest travel day for this already fox was a big ninety ninety six point three mile push as across the greenland ice sheet and this is the fastest known dispersal of the species previous record was held by mail fox in alaska there a lot of questions regarding this boxers journey across two thousand one hundred and seventy five miles of snow and ice like what did it eat a lot of calories burned travel that far in the cold in of course why make effort but what i think we should focus on is the fact we the united states of america just prior to the celebration of the birth of our nation just lost yardage fox overland dispersal distance time rickard doing norwegian triumph of the female the species verschoor but come on moving on in the florida death sue or puffer fish is a high risk high reward type of coronary experience the reward it's a tasty fish supposedly the risk death in japan food new sales hit about ten thousand tonnes annually in butchers at the study of around two years in order to repair the fish despite rigorous training in tight regulations around fifty people die in japan every year from improperly prepared foods new couple more fun movie fax sulu is only traditional japanese dish that can never be served of amber an food who roughly translates to river piglet which actually makes it sound a lot more attempting to me the puffer fish producers the talks and called tetra toxin now we all know potassium cyanide at least in a poisonous reference sort of way well point five five grams or half a gram of potassium cyanide that's like a dollar bill torn in half of half a gram anyway have a gram of potassium cyanide will kill a hundred and sixty pound person whereas only two milligrams of petro toxin has been proven be fatal dose so a tablet of this toxin the size of you're average ibuprofen pill will kill twentyfive of your buddies assuming they way around a hundred and sixty pounds of peace jetro toxin blocks the activation of nerve cells which causes all sorts of problems but will eventually leads paralysis and death seems like something folks when wanna mess with it well florida man walked into a hospital feeling the effects of both too much to do in too much cocaine fun fact pufferfish is also known as blowfish in cocaine can be referred to as a you get actually there's another old joke in here you know how some folks say treat my body like a temple others and amusement park well if that's true this guy treats his body like an old dingy casino sure you might have a good time for a while but you might get robbed on the way out anyway are adventurous eater slash sniffer experience chest pains vomiting numbness abdominal pain weakness he was placed on dialysis prevent total kidney failure you're developing ammonia in his lungs attempted the shutdown must be a tasty fish when you consider the so called dangerous delicacies you really have to wonder if the flavor is actually in the risk the height so to speak like when you look at that old hotdog the back of the fridge you know what has the potential to cause serious illness you weigh the severe intestinal battle that could result from its consumption voices telling you know don't do it and other voices saying it's fine and so convenient is that mental back and forests the budget version of food to also on the subject of strange foods and also in florida the florida fish and wildlife conservation commission has declared open season on iguanas the f wc encourages homeowners did kill green iguanas on their own property whenever possible iguanas can also be killed year round in without a permit on twenty two public lands in south florida green iguanas are native to central america and parts of south america as well some caribbean islands aside from being non native either guana they're extremely destructive they dig extensive tunnel systems that can undermine the integrity of roads houses in seawalls they're difficult to contain because they can climb swim in a really hall laugh on land and of course they have such a very diet they out compete native critters on top of that they carry salmonella in routinely distribute that nasty bacteria as they shed their skin the green guana is just one of thousands invasive plants and animals plaguing the state of florida the good news here is the tasty silver lining so to speak is in my experience the green guana is delicious from my small dabbling in the back legs loins and tail meta these invasive reptiles the flavor is as if a catfish in a chicken got together and had a seventeen pounds five foot long tasty baby jesse other day someone who was telling my buddy steve about the pleasures of heading out in a canoe with his twenty two rifle and coming back with the cooler half filled with crushed ice and severed grena guana tales then bringing those tales over to a cuban badeah his who's got the guana tail cooking dialed in perfectly so get do it florida next time i come down to pass through you're fish wanna see a cuban style a guana food truck her too but don't get too fired up on eating reptiles just yet specially raw geckos brisbane times reported on a thirty four year old man that iraq gecko echo at a christmas party last december like iguanas geckos can carry the salmonella bacteria and this party prank backfired to say the least green bama black urine testicles swollen to the size of grapefruits and eventually death there's nothing funny about this situation i've certainly done my fair share of stupid stuff on the subject of dares going wrong over in you a kid had have his appendix removed after he had complained of severe stomach pain when the surgeon remove the severely swollen willing appendix they found it full of legit shot turns out the youngster described as hyperactive had been teased by his older siblings end up playing a game of eating lead shot leftover on the family dinner table after bird dinners another case in australia of eating stuff as a stunt involved a garden slug this they're taking in completed at age nineteen didn't catch up with the prankster until age twenty seven along with the slug young man ingested rat lungworm which eventually turned into you'll see no filler men in gio satellite us as a note here the cdc advises against eating raw or undercooked slugs snails frogs shrimp and bronze personally 'em with you right up until the shrimp and bronze additionally perhaps the cdc should add something in that warns against eating things on a dare or perhaps for all you folks listening when you go to put something in your mouth you should stop and ask could this be considered a price since this is technically the independence day issue of cows weekend review consider the annual now world famous nathan's hot dog eating contest considering the context in the historical reality of what were celebrating that just seemed like kind of a waste think on the folks at volunteered knockback another invasive species back in seventeen seventy eight the invasive species in this case would be the british anyway these volunteers often when hungry and had the scrounge for whatever they could feller you may have heard of general george washington understood how to harvest the fruits of land even used those fruits fuel his army according to the general journals he killed five wild turkeys one november day some beer a few two days after an again after being quote in camped in guyana hunting killed five buffalo's mooned and some others in killed three more dear another general montgomery under washington's man march north in the invasion of canada his me quote shot so many pigeons that huge piles of the birds were heaps several feet high before butchering at valley forge the first and second pennsylvania brigades consisting of just under two thousand men consumed eight thousand nine hundred twenty one pounds or four and a half pounds per person of american shad that may have seventeen seventy eight excavations of the valley forge site interestingly enough turned up more white tailed deer bones in the virginia brigades camp than the pennsylvanians so bainian not sure if there is a what state creates better hunters rivalry but that camp evidence could lay a good historical foundation for one i find it interesting that while washington without feeding himself in his man by any means necessary he chose to express his frustration with the moderates in the continental congress by describing them as quote still feeding themselves upon the dainty food of reconciliation anyway if you need a new independence day tradition fuel all year celebration with some wild game but not eaten as a prank thanks for listening hope you had a safe and awesome weekend out enjoying are american birthright are fantastic and beautiful public lands remember to leave me review by hitting that furthers right hand star and subscribe if you wanna let me know how i'm doing or how i screwed up we shoot me an email to eighty s k
