I don't own going out close anymore because I do not partake in going out. I don't go to places with lines out front and if I have to scream to communicate I leave. Save the fun I enjoy as a thirty-seven-year-old adult typically happens during the day and I can tell you I enjoy it and save a lot more than I ever did. During the era of my life will quietly call body glitter but I refused to lead an unbalanced unbalanced.

"I'm a twenty year old female and I live in Michigan. I was sixteen years sold when these events happen. I'm a huge athletic nerd and I go hiking every day in this lazy picked the wrong day to go one day day and I met an experienced something I will not want to experience again drove to the hiking trail go to just about every time I go hiking and this day I saw creepy guy look like he was about in his thirties but me being the stubborn upbringing hard headed as I was back then. I ignored my gut and went and started jogging on the trail. I took a short glance at him. mm-hmm started going onto the trail and I got about two hundred three hundred yards away from the entrance and took a short break until I heard a scream from what sounded like a man and look down the path which made my heart drop. I saw the guy running straight. Tord me as my journal and rushed. I started run as fast as they could. This guy was running so fast he was catching up to to me and I was really fast runner. This game ran like kid. Taken to shots of steroids has started crying. Panic took a sharp turn into the woods and started to run back to the parking lot area. I kept hearing his footsteps not too far behind me once again as captain running his footsteps started getting slower because I was getting closer and closer to the parking lot at least I made it to the parking lot and they cried tears of joy. They took out my cell phone. Call the cops not long. After they arrived arrived and searched and found the man he was almost thirty seven year old guy. They said they had found a butcher knife in one of his Co. pockets to this day I'm glad I did the. ROTC throughout high school or else he would have had the energy advantage against me the creepy medic homeless guy. What's not me ever again now? It's understandable to now wanna go for walks on trails because you never know what can be waiting for you in the woods.

Episode Twenty-Point-Five: World Series Check-in
"That's all the people who said they saw this coming Yeah the NASA to nothing on the do you hear that break you know that this was crickets Granada opponent heavyweight champion and getting past three rounds you can do that he won't even know what to do with you and that's what happened in Game Two man's actually what happened way that's the thing like I feel like the real reason we're doing this is to to be smug right and and things like that that that seventh inning with six runs dude holy smokes dude it's like the rocky movies everybody else shock and awe the way we like it though let's be honest it's true this is this is what we've wanted I've been here routing all season long for somebody antibody to be able to take down the Astros Yep me to and and to do it the right does your got for lander but what I wasn't expecting was errors runs I think it's over now yes they have some trouble because there's some issues there but man hasn't been amazing aw it's a chore that's a Different Topic but baseball family we're here today with this special episode of the Baseball Together podcast Brigham Brett and so it feels like once he gets them pressure put on these start to press a little bit and we see what happened in game two as far as the errors you still we have a problem seriously I've been probably I've been waiting my whole life k. most of my life too legit game one was great game too was bonkers it was bombed that was that's the only word I can think of to describe it because I can't believe you know we we expected to to at the end of the first inning kind of you know we expected after that first inning where the nats came out and jumped over land outta here we're here because this world series was just it's been too crazy to not talk about yet been a couple of good games and were shocked were shocked intimately be able to utter those words right I think we all have yes we'll talk more about it in a little bit but I I don't think there celebrating small right celebrate it we celebrate subrogation gay looks in game two from extra bases being taken just the astros the they almost seem like they're like out of out of themselves world series it's been absolutely amazing I'm loving it oh so toilets it's worth staying I'm sure your stand up way later than I am but really were too runs we expected after game one for the Astros to come answer that and they did yeah okay tied back up new ballgame starting over I feel like I'm watching rocky movie when it's like no he can't go past three rounds he doesn't know how to go past three rounds all you gotta do is get the Job Yup and it's freaky it's like what and Bregman he is working I don't know where but Bregman is a mess right now house man they are playing phenomenal fundamental baseball if you see a no no the way to describe it because I don't feel like they're in their own heads but at the same time all season they haven't played a whole lot of close games yeah I agree so I don't get what's going on but that's on the astros side it's all confusing nobody knows where their heads are at but look the national does he had that big home run but other than that he just he seems like he's lost bobbled the ball twice on a single play in the seventh inning of game two the plate to its he's guessing and I I mean I know understand you guessed the pitch but he he's just guessing where the ball is seems like just fan house like 'cause I was thinking the same thing no man this is the most exciting that was the most exciting inning of baseball I yeah I think it was Josh Maltese like this would be a perfect opportunity for some old school baseball and let's see if he shows button here because that would be what you used to do and then he did that reinsured from my seat I couldn't believe it fell no man and the the Joe and John were like whole this seen in so long I'm a walgreens win a little bit right now I'm not gonNA lie several older right three runs nine hits however they stranded nine yes left nine on base for sure so here are the numbers of her landers postseason career postseason so the LDS he's not really gettable even though the singer that I've already made a big deal out of the he made up some awful lie about not running but we've moved on the did against Tampa Bay Yes and it was like Whoa what the heck is going on it was interesting so I this is more of the same bunt okay to advance the runners in the world's in twenty nine thousand nine I stood up and clapped I was I he's got to write they're the first ones to eight and one lifetime record and alias thirteen starts or twelfth starts thirteen appearances starts Oh and five record whoa Oh and five in the series uh-huh exciting so I wanNA do a little bit statistical breakdown from from game to nerd alert so yeah at a better level right this is this is in perfected almost an in game two look perfected yeah yeah it was great and you know so this means that the nationals were not only getting is on base but they're bringing them in because the astros the Astros had nine hits yeah as a whole portion if not all right don't well the dashes scored twelve rods fourteen and we can they haven't been sharp they've been sharp all your lawn maybe I don't know maybe they haven't been that sharp well we know we saw this slot we saw some weaknesses exploited point two from the Hale D. S. K. so I don't know if he is a guy who gets tired by by the time he gets the world series or hits per nine up from the from the LDS by almost two and a half home runs per nine up by one it's not that because it was similar in two thousand seventeen so you know what I mean here all these excuses from people so in against the dodgers doesn't seventy we'll go down with walgreens give me some cherry sours and obeying energy I'll be fat and happy staying up late watching these walgreens players man tell you eight one record now let's go to the lcs a little bit worse six and four eleven starts Oh and era in the aled Six even that's double Bro Say Math again CEO one more time I dare you I double dare Brad I didn't see the nats coming out to coming out of Houston I will say I thought they were GonNa get ver- lander because he's gettable you have some great he's shown that Dan to home runs yeah and then we go back to the two thousand six world series he had he had own to go against the cardinal gave up seven earned runs two home runs ten total runs something similar so it's like I don't know if it's a postseason thing or if it's the ball changed wow so so the history is only south here it is there's a pattern there's a pattern yes two point five to three point one three now here's the kicker here's the wanting this Kurt Suzuki whom I'm becoming a huge fan of by the way is very experienced against ver lander in regular season play but but so you ready for his lifetime World Series Era yes I'll stop interrupting you think you sorry five point seven three lifetime era in sit so before the in game two the nats were on a seven game winning streak they they had played in four different cities five of seven on the road with a one point eight three team era in three forty average with runners in scoring position seven they've won now eighteen of their last twenty with the successful game too and they take it home tonight but it's it's very high it is very high yeah it is it's six yup first time Washington will see a world series played at in DC since like thirty two or something like that taking advantage of whatever you know could be I don't know but it's interesting because even twenty in twenty seventeen we one was that both pitchers went over a hundred pitches Love that old school can I get an amen right so in postseason so I think I saw I think they were talking about during the game they forty five at bats against Ver Lander in that's a law the that's been their big Achilles heels they've got guys in scoring position they cannot bring him in and there's been some base running gaffes like we signed game one that whole thing was it's w. that's the way it's been he hasn't lost since May and the Astros haven't lost when he was pitching since July they bat it all the way around in one half inning and we were like what now here's the thing that I loved a couple of things that I loved bath takes all my theory that one the two I mean you that's a lot to see one guy yeah you really get a chance to know what happens and so in that seventh inning the Astros have three pitchers just to get through that and I'm the nats have to know this and they're they're swinging confidently I mean that's that's really all it is they're up they're ready to hack and they're doing well and it doesn't hurt that your guy or if he just feasts on inferior competition in Ale the S. and the and then by the time they get to the world series they have enough postseason tape on him that there ah man seriously fantastic and then five out of those six runs came with two outs yeah yeah it was it's at all the the mariners one in because they skies used to be in Montreal the Expos yet and I think you know let's let's game one real quick right so you just assume they're gonNA win how could you yeah but I think it's another one of those things where you're just out there ready to hit they're ready to be gene when when the Astros did win He came out with a with a live Kay he got the loss in that start he gave up fiber on this one he might who knows he might go game forward just to keep them alive if that's what it takes and I and that's what I was gonNA say Yeah Yep instead of bullpen day that I can see that totally happening get into game game three a little bit because man the other thing that that was crazy about this whole thing was you just figure when Garrett Cole gets out there not real good but the thing that the astros about the Astros it kind of surprised me as look at their splits like there pitch again because I'm sure this will go at least five so he's going to be again you'd think so and I think we can chalked out his next outing up to win home and away and stuff like that so at home they were sixty and twenty one during the regular season yeah but on the road there forty seven and thirty four right which progressive because they were jumping on him and we've talked about how Garrett Cole is a guy who generates swings and misses he's missing missing I mean he eh clearly that the nationals as a team stranded only died writers down this means that the data archive the fans in Washington are going to bring I don't know what is going to happen because that really is yes next level there and we've never seen it so it's like the UN Astros that's all that's everybody right there were listening right now yet because nobody saw this coming back owner comes Leonard cast so as far as statistics over the DASH doors but no okay so up to the score to ride and you'll be fine but with that many guys slumping are they going to be able to score the going to be and with the energy levels thirty three whatever I've been for a long time it's been a long time and never this franchise either I know you know still thirteen games over five hundred it's not as glaring no so if you can get them home you're pretty you're pretty much OK on the road against them because they're not going to do as well and but it it it's Kinda felt like like a dull almost a buzz it yeah right instead of a raucous like you know fat off of this team winning the last year's turning into that that Oakland crowd with warriors they just kind of expect you to win and they're not really in it too to especially his not hit well on the road this posting and with Bregman in his slump you got to wonder in this elite need to go five right you just gotTa Wonder Yeah Huge Party Yeah and there was at one point when when Joe Buck and and John smoltz are saying you know it's really loud in here we can hardly hear but it wasn't very long yeah because they're going to have to is you don't want that bullpen going whole game no no because we've seen it it's not it's not real good one when one hundred sixteen games it was to out so what was the motto that's nice and that's exactly what that was nobody cares what occurs to oust them just go up and do your business goes after the home run or something or it might have been off after that springer double I can't remember what it was but it doesn't last it doesn't mean Jane like it used to it's almost it's they've kind of gotten tim thinning occurred Suzuki started it all off and that Solo Solo home run and then he he was the final out recorded on a fielder's choice on quantity did did minute maid park filled with flat to you elise game on and I don't know if they took the place scoring early because there's a legitimate astern there yeah yeah 'cause 'cause this is the thing with Kohl's Yara where it is Dan just like every underdog team just like every first time team right Y- The fans understand the the role that they play Horiuchi Yeah and I think that's interesting point you bring up because the fans in Washington are oriented to help I mean they're there for a good time but they also under agreeance because of what they'd been through I totally agree but now it's the same thing in Washington and I think there's some sort of cosmic like universality they draft picks yeah how they got those draft picks I'm not a big fan of but well but they did it they were success they did it yeah yeah and then once they want okay let's move on Yeah I think I felt similarly but I was I was really pulling for this city and the fans to have a good expire whatever like universal standard or metaphysical thing that's going on whatever it is I don't even know then crazy and I think that's just the way it's going to be Joe John we're talking about the video feed from Washington during these games in minute maid yeah because of that because they are the underdog they're the underdog city they're the underdog team they were young and they're put together kind of the right way you know right it's it's awesome I love it I love how infectious it is and I love how electric the fans are and I about the underdog in the energy level because there I I don't know man I think there's something like if you can live and they were like no people look it's crazy probably going to have to renovate the entire facility but before we get there doc teams just you just can't help a love that Yep that's right and and you know I'll be honest I was pulling for the astros in two thousand seventeen and you'll part of it might have been the hurricane that it was something for them to look forward to something for the positive about because they had such the been beaten down so much by that hurricane it's GonNa be a rough place I mean we see you saw what happened when when they beat the dodgers oh man the Nelson yeah he is he is what a cool team right what a cool story and if you get that's the thing man so it's like the twin he's hitting like a veteran I know these men going with the pitch hitting it thousand feet over the fence and left center my gosh he's so much sixteen cubs the stories of the players and how they got there and have the team was built and everything it's the that's the kind of stuff that that you love with these under I love that you know the story lines is just all great the average t major I think is thirty one or something like that yeah because they've got Kurt Suzuki like thirty seven how he kendricks another thirty-seven-year-old Yeah Zimmerman is up there thirty six thirty seven like that totally but then you've got one Soto yeah actually I was really paying attention to that the after that hurricane is like the Astros are GonNa win the world series because this is what happens yeah it is and boy those three teams are were like phenomenal and we know that this Houston team is phenomenal you can if you can hold yourself to that whatever standard nobody knows about then you deserve to win underdog it's pretty cool that's right the three teams so there is a chance so you're telling me there's a chance right like there's a there's a it's possible it's really cool So I have I have a hold on before a couple of things I wanNA share so Houston has lost the first two games at home right with home field advantage to then successfully win the world series and it has only been done three times thanks to Fox for explaining it I just was reading on I don't remember what website this is but apparently I don't know if three okay to win a world series after losing the first two games at home are the nineteen eighty five royals the miracle mets from nineteen eighty six and the nineteen ninety-six Yankees is true I haven't done enough research which means it could be fake news which means I'm gonNA share it with you the apparently Fox error that we turn we let you listen to sixty seconds of Joe Buck renting drone droning think endeared himself just a little bit to most of the country when he said Okay I don't know who the geniuses are over Pink Fong Soreq offensively historic to absolutely so it's possible right like we could see them run away with this still but at the same time the man that Baby Shark Song really is get stuck in your head that is brilliant he says he has twin year and a half however millions of fans were understandably upset when we accidentally pressed the UN Mute Joe Buck but in on our control console UN mute who's totally twelve he you know he's like who's a freaking all-star no not even the dodgers it was the one against the brewers in eighth inning that little defensive lapse that they had and that place win GonNa say was I think despite all the Joe Buck stuff we talk about and everybody talks about Solaris he i uh-huh oh okay so that is tongue firmly in cheek and it was hilarious and it was worth sharing but one thing I did this is this is published by the Babylon be Donald Anything about them I just caught it oh yeah outings very close to being no hitters yeah it recent largely yeah yeah so now totally so that's yeah leaves a little bit to be desired there Sanchez however freaking funny it says we've earned the trust of our viewers by muting Joe Buck throughout every Game Fox spokesperson told reporters. I don't know what's going to happen honestly I like that that could go either way with the way the nets are hitting

"In this vault studios production this podcast contains graphic subject matter and his men mature listeners only previously unbeaten town my ex stepdaughter called me and she said attorney very glad to be alive listen to start here new episodes every weekday on your smart speaker and your favorite podcast app kind of attention that screams out from the signs around town where about one mile from folks how House I actually hope he is home because I think people need to hear what he has to say whatever that is but before we get to that to killing I'm Shay mcallister this is Bardstown in all of these two right Sherry Ballard a letter of apology and then Brooks himself is in the spotlight again on July eighteenth two thousand eighteen disappearance someone who is a name that keeps coming up in almost every single interview we've done so far and the suspect he's never been charged with anything in connection with crystal's disappearance but I think to tell his side of things is arrested and indicted on unrelated charges felony theft charges for stealing thousands of dollars worth of roofing shingles from Lowe's the main Tommy Ballard is the fifth and final victim in our story five unsolved cases still no answers still appeared there's a lot of accusations out there both by the community by the family but also by law enforcement he's been named we're GonNa see if he's home and willing to talk to us about crystal this is the the main suspect police call a suspect new girlfriend crystal Maupin another blonde crystal is arrested for stealing standing with the Ballard's yard sign when she's caught on a gas station camera in July a two thousand seventeen she pleads guilty is sentenced to two years probation and is ordered to have no contact with the Ballard's and instigations brooks how crystal Rogers Boyfriend and the father of her youngest son is the only named suspect his brother Nick was fired news is important to this story and to see what he has to say or if we can find his brother Nick who was the Bardstown police officer who's fired from the Bardstown police force not long after officer Jason Ellis was murdered but police have never linked nick how to listen murder or anything having to do with crystals arrests only theories accusations all of us in law enforcement over like you've gotta be kidding me Sheriff's department it's time to see of Nick or Brooks will talk to us so this week that's what we're going to do but we know they're used to getting unwanted attention of the story we want to tell you what's happened in the last few years in Bardstown it might not surprise you to learn there's been a few weird twists Brooks hawks roofing shingles from Lowe's we contacted by theft provisioned from Lowe's regarding some theft that was occurring at the store and through charges the one man at the head of the investigation for the last four years detective John Snow has recently retired Nelson actually even not interviews like people we talked to in town is Brooks obviously that's crystals boyfriend the last person to have seen her before she just touch that has just been unbelievable even though it doesn't have anything to do with my daughter it's actually showing some his true colors and the kind of person Tom so what I'm saying is you know it's like you drove right past work coward was hiding in the trees so he didn't make it someone my husband out of the way they knew he was never going to give up searching for my daughter and I think they just wanted him out of the way affect the disappearance of a mother of five crystal Rogers and Bardstown has been indicted on felony theft charges now police arrested Brooks Hawk after they say he was caught stealing Onis Sheriff rape and Aurora isn't going to let that get in the way of finding a killer or killers he's put a lot of work and it's overwhelming allegation that we conducted here at the Police Department that led to the indictment of four felony theft charges and four misdemeanor charges Brooks appearances in court on theft the two that reaches national attention to be the stigma of our town nobody and I can tell you that to see somebody put that much time in one case I wish he was here just to see the end result but the widespread urges get a lot of attention brooks help spent the morning in a courtroom but not for anything connected to his former girlfriend crystal Rogers of Nelson County expected back in okay well we got our guy that much more to go I gotta give you what the law says I gotta pluess it he was killed off the Bluegrass so you know right on Casey's Ed critique of his department doesn't fall on deaf ears at first reading this is our hometown who one's a crime of this man in eighteen to investigate what he believes isn't just a missing person but a murder case verse how has been named the main suspect in this case previously that he is and I was just very happy about that and in two thousand Nineteen Brooks is acquitted just into our newsroom about three closure for them closer for this town but closure could prove difficult in this case for Sheriff Panera hours of deliberation earlier this afternoon we now know a Warren County jury will find Brooks how not guilty his step trial they say that is for all we've worked our tails off and we will continue to do it it takes time and I said this is Sherry probably three years ago or so takes time to Gordon January if convicted on all charges he could be facing up to twenty years of prison time this is the first real thing that has happened he's got by with so much you've anybody else is the the main suspect do you still look for in Bolt from others you think other people couldn't have been part of this put a puzzle together this is probably not a fifty piece personal probably a thousand two thousand piece puzzle this is the magnitude of case I'm not gonNA comment on it it's kind of touching on on what we're doing now in the team is still currently active working but surely were still doing piece by piece that eventually that puzzle will work itself Pennarola has hired what he calls he's still the main suspect to that I would say he's still the main suspect in the case nothing has changed in the investigation that leads us to believe urging in doing the the investigation and I believe the family deserves that we may not have a body but at the end of the day move forward the case hey listeners if you have a comment or question about any of the cases were covering in the Bardstown podcast we'd love to hear from you give us a call at eight day so the main part is you gotta get your evidence your ducks in a row and once you have that you're we have to get our ducks in a row what what people don't understand or the misconception is

digging into some lesser known cases you might not have heard of check out true crime chronicles and of course thanks for listening to Bardstown we talked it's it's beneficial that the less that they

Single Women Fear Not-YouTube is Here for You
"Hi, I'm Chris Kepler. And welcome to does this happen to you. I'm an actor voice actor audiobook, narrator and writer, I love tilling and sharing stories about the strange experiences. My friends and I have while doing mundane things like grocery shopping. That's why this podcast features. Funny stories from fantastic writers about our daily anomalies. A micro audio book about life in befuddling just for you. Our story this week is from teasha Blake who you'll find on medium dot com. And here is single women. Fear not YouTube is here for you with an array of clean cut mostly white guys who can show you everything you've been doing wrong. It's brutal out there. If you have half a dozen single friends chances are they've all. All said that to you at least once if you've recently become single yourself chances. Are you never gave it much credence until you parachuted into the particular jungle that is modern dating. But if you've been single long enough how long is debatable a few months for some one weekend for others. You're probably already echoing. It's a brutal out there. Now, I don't advocate staying in a relationship that slowly killing your soul for fear of being alone. Anyone is better off alone than with a toxic partner that said and knowing firsthand how brutal it actually is out there. I can now tell you ladies that there is hope there is if you don't already know a whole segment of YouTube on dating advice for women by men, if you let them these clean cut presentable guys will tell you all you've been doing wrong in. The dating scene. They teach you power moves and texting strategies. So you not only get a man, he high quality, man, whatever the F that means but more on that later. I stumbled upon these channels by accident, I swear and ended up watching a video or twenty the worst part about them. They're quite addicting. And they do teach you a lot allow me to share what I've learned high quality women want high quality men. This is the bedrock of all dating advice. Channels for women. The very first thing you need to know is that you don't just want to attract a man, you went a high quality, man. Because of course, your high quality yourself. No question about that. Sure. You can't afford a mortgage and have some credit card debt. But you're shoot closet is to die for and your artisanal candle business is going great on Oetzi. Sure, you spend half of your evening, stocking, your excellent social media and the other half swiping right on dating apps. But at least you're moving on and your man. Well, he is toll hand. Awesome successful. He has a six pack and has already put a down payment on your future. Love nest where is this mythical creature who's not already married and has three kids with cute blonde. Always cooks dinner is never tired. Stacey. You don't know. But if you change one or fifty things about yourself, you're sure to find out the reason, he's not committing you jumped in bed way too soon. That's right, ladies, the reason he's not committing to. You is not because he's a thirty seven year old man child with an inflated ego and mummy issues. No, it's because you had the dust city to sleep with him on the first date because you see men can't be enticed to commit based on your sharp intellect. Interesting conversation and witty banter. No, the committing game is actually a game of how long you can hold him off building up his and your horn Innis. To the point of explosion in this game whom ever exposed. I loses in this scenario losing to a man means committing. Everyone knows men lose their freedom as women gain a boyfriend keep up with the rules. There's one thing. They don't consider though what if halfway through the date. We as women realize the guy is boring af and seeing no future in it decide we might as well just get our needs taken care of before never texting or calling him again ever consider that relationship geniuses men. Don't actually want to know how many people you slept with even if they ask don't fall into this trap. Ladies if a man asks, you your number find a way to change the conversation. He might be asking. But he doesn't really want to know. No man lice to think of his woman in someone else's bed. Well, some do but fetishes our topic for another day. It's funny. How girls don't mind so much when they received the information? It's a cultural thing as women we learned to expect a number in the double digits or triple as we age and start dating older guys. However, exp. Expect women to get into bed and go immediately wide-eyed. Oh my God. Is that a penis? I've never seen one. So never seen before. I'm not good at this. She bats her. I like she's like a scared dove. And then proceeds to completely blow his mind in the minds of a lot of men women being amazing at sex is a skill that should spontaneously manifest itself completely disconnected from practice. So don't forget men. Don't want to know how long you've been betting at that pitch before you learn how to score a home run or some sport metaphor that works. I'm actually not good at this. It's extremely important to be precise. When texting according to the YouTube gurus, no spontaneity is allowed when texting your man ever, unless it's been carefully studied, they offer a whole set of pre written text, you can send post. I date text to entice him to a second mid week. Text to turn him on text to get him to call you when he hasn't text to get him to introduce you to his grandma and make her name one of her kittens after you. It's all pre written. You don't even have to think. Actually, it's best that you don't Oriole send him one of those vomit text telling him all about your day and men high quality men. Absolutely hate those. What you wear do and say on a first date is crucial show a little skin, but not too much. Don't let the coversation die down with these five first date conversation topics even if you've already been carrying the dialogue all by yourself all night. Anyway, you don't want him to have to think do you. If he does he might start asking yourself why he didn't marry blonde Stacy straight out of college in the first place, even if everything is going. Well, deferring nightcap is the best strategy, and whatever he says, whatever you do do not go to bed with him. Don't forget you want him and all his unresolved psychological falls that make him a void responsibility on a daily basis to commit. Here's the reality. People are messed up any kind of coaching like advices fine. What is geared towards making people better humans. I'm. Fine with that. What makes no sense is to promulgate this idea in the minds of single women that there is a high quality man out there. Just waiting for them. The term high quality man itself makes me shudder. And so does high quality woman. What exactly does that mean? It means some people are made with better quality materials. Much like leather handbags or silk, scarves. It means it conflagration of perfect qualities people just to well adjusted with such great jobs and wonderful family that puts the rest of us all to shame like ide- K aband- of unicorns side note, a group of unicorns is actually cold a blessing because they're so pure and innocent is there anything more conceited. Here's one thing. I've learned not from any of those YouTube channels, but from life, everyone has issues these sweetest most emotionally will adjust guys are financial. Broke the girls with the six figure salaries and the Victoria's secrets models bodies have over mothers who constantly chip away at their self esteem. That charming put together forty something bachelor has an ex wife who hates his guts for a reason that perfect couple. You see all the time on Instagram. They're screaming matches make the neighbors wonder if they should call the cops everyone has some issue. Trying to recognize him work on yours is the best thing you can do for yourself and for others, but believing there's a high quality person out there waiting for you. And that you deserve them because you're high quality just as you are is delusional work on yourself and try to find someone who's genuinely working on themselves as well that won't make it any less brutal out there. But neither will blindly follow advice that are based on nice sounding labels instead of on how complex real people. Actually are. Meanwhile, I genuinely think the YouTube dating cruise for all their lessons. They taught me a lot. But especially that there really is okay of crazy out there for real thanks so much for listening.

you listen welcome back to kind world i'm yes me namur and i'm andreas fi hey yes i mean there's always been this lingering stereoty the teenagers are self absorbed and largely disinterested in the world around them i know but we really should give this generation a lot more credit credit i've personally interviewed several of them and they speak out so passionately about issues they care about yeah i completely agree and i wanna share a story with you about someone else who saw that firsthand her name is christina omer and she's a thirty thirty seven year old ninth grade english teacher at half borough horsham high school in hafbro pennsylvania but this story really starts about five years ago when christina lost her younger sister katie in a car accident katie was only twenty nine and didn't didn't leave behind children or a spouse so christina felt a responsibility to preserve her sisters memory registers really charitably her entire life she worried about people that were in need or triples when christina got a hold of tv's wallet and sought eighty dollars left she knew she wanted to do something what the money that would honor her sister spirit she just didn't know what for almost five years she'd out a little bit of money here and there and she kept thinking about how spend it finally last fall she turned her students for help i just had a really amazing group of kids this year so when we're leading different books and just some of the insights had it's thought okay i think you could do this because i think you could take this money and you could do something amazing mazing so she just gave her students the money yeah she handed each of her twentysix students a twenty dollar bill and told him the story of her sister and then she asked them to do something kind with the money over preschool break i talked to them about how they did not know that i lost my sister my students like you don't realize that people are walking around even you're teachers and you're and you're classmates who seem like they're happy they're walking around with things but they're struggling and so you know i want you to be empathetic toward that end realizes that you could duties ball kind things that will make me feel happy in bringing their day so how can react to this so christina said they were understandably standup lee surprise at first but eventually they started to brainstorm ideas about how to use the money initially the students want it to pull all the money to donate to some type of charity but christina really one of her students to focus on smaller more manageable acts of kindness the kind that improves someone's day rather than dramatically change a life so the students did things like by a glass of water at i hop in leave a twenty dollar tip the server or piece of the person behind them at a coffee shop definitely they had the sense of like i know i'm only a teenager but that doesn't matter i can do amazing things and thanks to an anonymous donor who heard about christina's assignment she had the money to do the same project with her students in the spring one student gave coloring books and games two children in a hospital another kid handed out donuts on a street corner but my favorite project was from a girl who decided to donate her twenty dollars to the school library she had no idea idea impact it would have a sound out the shade for seniors finds that wouldn't have been it would have gradually if they had their science paid off wow really so the fines would stop them from graduating yes she she helped for seniors graduated that twenty dollars so well christina continue doing the twenty dollar challenge in a future yeah she's raised more than two thousand dollars on a crowd sourcing website and she also received donations and people in town so she's had a wider impact than her own classes other students and people in her community tell her they're inspired to do their own acts of kindness and this all began with her sister that's such a moving tribute yeah this is one way christina is making sure that her sister isn't forgotten i often think about my sister in how she's not here doing the good things and i know she would have been doing if she was here but there are things being done in her name and so i didn't i didn't anticipate that and that was just amazing to hear that my sister's eighty dollars could turn into that christina now says the this project her twenty dollar challenge is the most important lesson her students learn in her classroom i'm a i'm a kind world is a

Foster friendships that last.
"Hello and welcome to flying blind. Podcast my name is and here. I'll be talking about my own very unique journey and I hope to make you feel good about your own. Very unique journey. Today is the beginning of season. Four and I'll be talking about friendships and relationships during this really on time that we're living in. I hope you make you feel good today and I also hope to inspire you to get out there. Spread your wings and fly today. I want to talk about relationships and friendships specifically with the guys friendships. Relationships are always very important to us but I feel that right now they are especially important. They're more important than ever. We are going through difficult time. We can't necessarily see each other with all of this. You know pandemics going on but we really need to lean on each other and we need our friends and family for support so right now. Our friendships our relationships that we have are just so critical because we need others. We need each other and we need to stick together to get through this difficult time but one of the things that really has made me think about my friendships and relationships right now and how this odd time might change things and how it has changed. Things is because of a a situation that had come up A few days ago and I actually heard from someone that I hadn't talked to in. Wow I don't know been oil maybe a couple of years and this person. I don't know if I'd call it dating Yeah I guess. We dated We hung out a few times and they didn't really work out for several reasons. But this person in particular reached out and you know just wanted to say hi see him doing oh had a little bit of small talk back and forth and said something along the lines of. Hey well when all of this stuff you know comes down and is over. You know she get together some time and grab a drink or something. I really didn't answer because in all honesty I wasn't very interested but after that conversation about getting together. He threw in a couple of questions about dependent like asking how I felt about it And also asking if I had had any symptoms which I don't have any symptoms. I I've been doing what everybody else is doing. And you know being careful and Social distancing and all of that stuff but I like a lot of people I do believe that at some point I did have it possibly the end of last year the beginning of this year and of course. There's a way to know you can get the you know the blood test and see if you had antibodies so after you know some Little Chitchat. Back and forth in letting him know that that those remind. That's what I thought. He actually asked that if we were to hang out if I would get a cova. Nineteen test and to be honest. I wasn't release your heart to feel about that. I wasn't sure if I was a little bit offended a little bit upset by it but at the same time I wanna be understanding and be respectful of people's fears and concerns and it just had a lot of mixed feelings I'm not an essential workers so I really you know again have just been do not everybody else's doing and and being careful about home around what I'm doing and keeping myself clean and using hand sanitizer all of us of that. Everybody's doing when they go out so again. I really wasn't sure. Feel about this but it really got me thinking about friendships and relationships. And how much has changed with this that we are currently experiencing in this world like I said I believe friendships are so crucial all of the time. They say that we are like the five people that we hang out the most with so our friends are important. The energy That we give each other and the type of influence that we have have on each other as friends is incredibly important and affect our lives so friendships are important and again right now during this weird time it's important to have friendships are supportive and that are good for us and we should do our best to be good for others but that being said and with that weird situation that I had with that person it really again got me thinking about friendships and how they've changed and what's different and as it is every single friendship is unique Some of my best friends don't live in this state. They don't live in the state of Arizona and I only see them a couple of times a year so some of my friendships are long distance. I have a couple of friends that we communicate pretty much every day Sometimes it's phone call. Sometimes it's face time a lot of the Times it's text messaging. We are constantly sending each other memes and funny videos and things like that. So that's what my friendships look like with the ones that are long distance and those were older friendships and they're also really great because even though we only see each other a couple of times a year because we stay up to date with each other's lives when we hang out you know we we of course have a lot to talk about. We are up to date on each other's lives and they're really beautiful friendships that I have and some other friendships are a little bit different. Some are You know friends even before this pandemic I maybe didn't see very often but again you know. Stay in touch and on the occasional meeting. You know whether it was for dinner drinks. You're going on twitter. Whatever it is that we were doing we would kind of pick up right where we left off the last time and I mean again. Every friendship is different. I have other friendships. That are a little bit more consistent as far as seen each other and we would see each other almost on a weekly basis or we would have certain days that we would get coffee or go to happy hour to get Sushi again. Every single relationship is very different and some are deeper than others. Some I could talk about very deep things and be incredibly vulnerable and others. I might not share as much. But one thing that these friendships have in common is openness of vulnerability of course to varying degrees and honesty and that goes both ways and some of my friendships. Do Look a little bit different now. We don't get to meet up every week for coffee or for happy hour. We don't go to each others homes. We're just not doing the same amount of things together physically like we used to so because of that I have really also come to realise. Truly how important it is to have that open communication and to have that vulnerability and to be able to share without fear of judgement and even though there is so much honesty in these relationships there has to be a certain level of respect of course and there has to be the idea and the feeling that sharing with your friends is safe and they need to be able to feel safe sharing with you as well and because for myself. My friendships have changed. It has kind of changed my lifestyle a little bit because I am unmarried and I don't have any children and I don't have any remains other than my dog so I've really seen the importance of friendships and to be completely honest. I am very happy with a lot of my friendships. And I know that they will last and that they will survive through pretty much anything including the spending and I do have to say that with other friendships I have been a little bit disappointed because there has not been necessarily that intention or reciprocate as far as you know checking on each other and being there for each other during the times But also I have to try and be understanding and I'm not judgmental but definitely I feel like even though that's the case and even though it I probably have some hurt feelings I need to also be understanding that everybody handles things differently and it is a tough time for people and some people don't own -sarily had handle it. I mean who really does know how to handle this. None of us were prepared for this stuff to happen so I need to be understanding that maybe people that would typically reach out are not that they might just be really Keeping to themselves and probably protecting their energy whether they realize it or not so I need to be a little bit understanding with all of the situation and to see how things play out on the road. Now there have been some friends that have just straight up then kind of. Shakti you can say but you know it is what it is friendships pandemic or not sometimes change and some of them. Just don't last forever and they're not meant to be in your life forever and that's okay so I do encourage you that if you are feeling a little bit Unsupported by your friends be a little bit understanding because they could just be having a hard time and not really know how to handle things and they might feel a little too overwhelmed to be reaching out to you and even though I typically do tend to keep to myself I just. I'm very intentional with my relationships and I want to make sure that I continue to be that way and that I continued to reach out even though in all honesty a lot of times I just want to keep to myself. It's not only good for your friends and you check up on them but it's good for you too. It's good to reach out. It'll make you feel good to know that you are supporting the people that you care about. Even though this is such a weird time and it is affecting our relationships and a very unique way. There are some pros to this situation. And we'll talk about that. Come back from break everybody. This is from the five or five bucks. Then you're currently listening to line with visa. We hope you enjoy it. Grab like love and follow us at work media at the WBRC media good today. We're talking about friendships and relationships and how it is just too weird time and how these times are affecting them but there are some positive things that we can get from the situation and a one of those things is that this situation is really kind of forcing us to get back to basics and I think that holds true for a lot of things We are getting back to what's important in life. What really truly matters which is of course our family. Our loved ones. Taking care of them are health and those are the things that we have kind of been forced to focus on again. You know just the essentials the basics and I think that really holds true as well with our friendships really when it comes down to it. Our friendships and our relationships should be about connection and communication. And I think that that's really important and it's easy to get away from that especially when you might have some friendships that might be. Based on things that might be a little bit more superficial. I know that for a lot of I'm going to make myself sound old. But you know when you are younger and college age and you know when you start going out and partying and things like that. A lot of relationships friendships are kind of based on that they are based on doing things instead of true deep valuable connections and I know a lot of people that had supposedly really great friends that they would go party with all the time. But at some point you outgrow that and you get to other things in your life and you start focusing on other things and those friendships don't last and a lot of times that all the time but a lot of the Times. The reason that those friendships don't last is because they're not based on true depths true connection and with this situation and also even like with dating which. I know that some people are still online dating which. I'm sure that's very interesting. That's not something I've done but I'm sure it's incredibly interesting right now with everything going on but now you can't you know meet up you can't go out and go to a bar or go to a restaurant and you know have dinner and drinks or whatever. Those things just aren't possible anymore so it is about communication and connection now and now. I'm sure with all of you and your friendships. And whether it's with people that have been in your life or longtime or maybe they have and even in your romantic relationships. Now you'RE GONNA have to ask yourself you know because you can't just go to the movies and not talk or go to a sporting event and not really talk. I mean those things just aren't possible anymore. So now you have to ask yourself. Can we hold a conversation beyond small talk? Can we actually just hang out with each other and have just? I mean if you're safe it's a significant other and you're living with them. Can we like sit and truly you know communicate on a deep level and have more than just small talk in more than just whatever it is that we typically do. Because you can't do the things you typically do and yes there's net flicks and TV and all of that stuff but you could only do that so long right at some point you have to spend time with each other and talk. Can you do that or if it's someone or you know friends like for me? For example I don't live with anybody and so a lot of communications via phone calls text facetime things like that so with my friends and you know with all the relationships that I have. I am asking myself you. Can we sit down in front of the computer in facetime or whatever it is that we're doing zoom and just Chitchat? Can we hold a conversation for more than five minutes and again getting down to basics? Can you actually connect you could only have you know small talk for so long? So then it gets to things and can go deeper. What are your true morals? What are your values? What are the things that truly interest you? What are the things that make you tick? And those are the things that I always want? Know any ways in my friendships and in my relationships. I'm super interested. In what makes people take? What MAKES PEOPLE WHO? They are but a lot of times and certain friendships. Or when you're dating it's just the mountain going out and doing certain things and you don't get to the deeper stuff and now you really don't have a choice so if you really can't get to the deep stuff then what is there. Is that a true friendship as the true relationship. And maybe it's something to ask yourself and that is something that I know that I'm asking myself right now. Because that's all they have right. That's all I have right now and that's all a lot of it right now is being able to communicate with each other and if you don't communicate well with someone and vice versa for whatever reason or because you don't feel safe or they don't feel safe with you then maybe it's time to start looking at those friendships. Maybe it's time to start evaluating those friendships and there are so many questions with these strange circumstances and they've created some kind of strange at dynamics between people and I am not currently trying to date but like I said I know a lot of people that are and they're doing the whole online thing and it makes me kind of wonder too and I don't have any answers here and I guess none of us will truly know until you know the future comes in. We're living in the future but it makes me wonder also and I'm sure some of you listening are wondering as well we'll dating be like will it. Change it forever will be temporary and even for myself that right now. That's not currently what I'm looking for. I do have to admit that I had a moment where I was a little bit panicked. I mean I'm not scared. I'm not in a rush. Not Trying to date like I said. I'm not trying to find somebody to date but I'm sure there will be a day that I am possibly and I wonder what's what's that GonNa look like what is going to happen when I want to date and I've never done online dating thing and I know it's worked for a lot of people but that kinda scares me in. It's not really something that have been interested in doing but it makes me wonder now. Is that GonNa be my choice and I know that eventually we're going to get back to normal life but we don't really know how long that's GonNa take because this is something that I feel that has affected everybody in so many different ways and it just makes me curious how people are going to handle it like. Is it going to be like this guy that was trying to like hang out and ever choirmaster going to be to get a covert test? Oh it's just so weird to think about what life is going to be like but yeah as a single thirty seven thirty seven years as a single thirty-seven-year-old. I'm just wondering how my life is going to be affected by this beyond this moment because none of us truly truly no but even with all of this like I said there are some great opportunities here and I don't mean just for Dana and a in general with your relationships and your friendships. This is a really great opportunity to work on your communication skills. This is a time to also be a great communicator. And what I mean by that is not just during your conversations and during your interactions via technology or whatever. The case may be what I mean by that. It's a good opportunity to reach out. It's a good opportunity to really foster your friendships through this to like. I said we need to be a little bit understanding that people are having a hard time in. Might WanNa keep to themselves so we need to be cognizant of that but also I think a lot of us through this are gonNA find out. Who are our friends really are But again the understanding of each other because it is a tough time for everybody. Every single person has their own unique set of circumstances and we need to be understanding of each other There's a lot of people that are home with their children in their stressed out. And maybe just don't feel like they have the time to reach out because they're overwhelmed and I do have more time on my hands than somebody that has five children but nonetheless. I have my own set of circumstances and I have my own set of challenges and that understanding does need to go both ways so keep that in mind and remember what friendship really is. It's about being there for each other being understanding of each other creating a safe place for your friends to share with you without the fear of being judged and you can be honest about your opinions and you could be honest about all of your thoughts. But in a way that's loving and constructive and supportive and that's what true friendship is. There needs to be honesty and vulnerability there needs to be give and take on both sides and of course things aren't always going to be fifty fifty. That's just not life. That's not how things are. Sometimes you might need more symptoms. Your friends might need more. And that's okay you give and take you. Don't keep track though and you do what you can. What's within your reach? And there is an understanding going both ways it should never be completely one sided but of course remember. It's never going to be split down the middle because we all have different needs at different times in our life. You're listening applying blind podcasts.

"The. Woody, Show three stories ripped out of the headlines of the day. And what are you GonNa? Share with you real quick The Gist of this is you've got to figure out which one of them happened Florida. They're all true and as you know Florida, cranks out these stories with more consistency than anybody around the world and so tip the CAP. Florida you spot that thing to win. You can actually be an an official contestant, eight four four four ww show, would he has story number one remember when you had. Had Your Tree Guy Out Wilcox to talk about the crotches in your backyard. That's not why I had about I had him out to assess the health of trees in my yard, and then through that discovered that he says Crotch Alah Okay Gotcha now would I have him out now to talk about Crotch in my yard? Yes, let the first time I didn't know it was a thing. I bring it up because there is a tree guy in story number one who sadly lost his leg in a stump grinder accident. Said is not going to slow him down one bit. He's thinking about changing his name to forest stump. And we'll continue to ride horses. He says saying that the injury will not slow him down. Is it in Florida. Where forest stump had grind a stump grinding accident to tree, guys normally ride horse, and no. That's why I mean I've never met a tree. Guys. Oh okay. Guy Did not show up on. A Horse was on a truck. That's unfortunate. Story Number twos not easy. It's not easy. Just going GONNA. Read you the headline, and then maybe we. Maybe we need to go any further. I don't even know. Rape Vista victim charged after stalking attacker and stripping the skin off his genitals with a potato peeler. Send that out of every body made people think twice? Thirty seven year old woman stalked her attacker and then assaulted him with a potato peeler. Stripping the skin off of the old genitalia. K. We can just let that roll around in your head for a site. I want to let that roll around in your dome for a minute. Still Rolling around. No, I'm thinking of something different because that's too gruesome well is it in some countries where women have the cloth thing that they keep inside them that situation? The same thing will happen I. Don't feel like I. Know What you're talking about that. I'd like to know what you're talking about. Yeah, IT'S A. Device. If I. In case you are raped. And then it lashes down. That part. Tried to remove and skin comes off. If if there's a movie, cool beans will review it member. She already saw the movie teeth. That's all about vaginas. Anton. That similar, just not teeth cut it specifically for that crime. this is not in another country. This is here and the good old United States of America. I is it Florida is my question for you. What he's got the third and final finally something a little bit lighter. A forty year old man was arrested after he was blocking traffic by doing gymnastics in the road, not a euphemism for something he was literally doing gymnastics, and he's forty well good for him. they do believe drugs and alcohol was a factor in him doing gymnastics in the middle of the road. When the COPS showed up, he tried to court wheel away from the police officers, not not running. He was doing cartwheels, and that's how he was going to make his getaway. They attempted to detain him He did cartwheel away kicking an officer so additional charges there for battery on a law enforcement officer and resisting arrest. Is it in Florida where he was doing gymnastics in the middle of the road? Jake up I to solve our quiz. Jake, which one of these three true stories you think went down the plywood state. Wonderful but I think I'll go with story number three. Number three. Landau Florida is where the dude was just doing cartwheels in the middle of the road, and that's frowned on started to the background. Is that after this woman was assaulted, she decided not to press charges against her attacker and the authorities at the time were like. Please don't let him go. You should press charges. She didn't and obviously had this in mind. The whole time spent months tracking him watching his moves, and then whipped out the potato peeler and went to town Bloomington Illinois is where this one went down and not even this country. Country, a tree surgeon in Scotland had a horrible stump grinder. Accident is thinking about changing his name to forest stomp positive note. Cubans has a new. Cubans remakes out those of you that follow us on Instagram have already seen this because it is up and if you don't follow us, you can at woody and Wilcox, on Instagram we'll get it on the radio to among other things coming up next.

Chef Danny Bowien of Mission Chinese: "we're living in a post-authentic world"
"This Financial Times podcast is supported by capital one capital one is building better bank one that feels and acts nothing like a typical bank it's why they're reimagining making and building something completely different they offer accounts with no fiercer minimums the also offer one of the best savings rates in America and you can open a capital one account from anywhere credibility is the most important thing today on Culture Amy Oliver of course yes Jamie Oliver I remember binge watching Youtube clips of Jamie Oliver and dark time in my life I have gotten past that point a you're listening to culture call a transatlantic conversation from the financial call we are entering the world of food and in particular we're going to be thinking about the New York food scene in the US we have as Grizz a lot of chef superstars over actor or new musicians but instead we think in terms of restaurants I think like we know the restaurant that becomes popular in our city of what you were saying in the last episode about the art world that like the really recognizable names are not the ones that are doing the most interesting stuff here that's your bobby flay you're barefoot Contessa your Emmerle Agasi you're assuming nosrat of salt fat acid heat what are the most famous food people in Britain I feel like go and to is to kind of redefine what you know Chinese food can be now there's fusion restaurants all over the place everybody's trying we don't always know the chef and the food world knows the chef there legends in that industry but outside of it their names aren't very well known it sort of reminds me really one of the first people to do a few things that have become quite common one is to start a pop restaurant I think he started the first pop restaurant in San Francisco Times Maree Brown in London and I'm Lila rap topless in New York coming up on today's episode Danny Bolen welcome to the podcast hi John Lawson now the classic TV series I'm thinking of your time Auto Langi who has been popular for quite a long time now it's Mary Berry it is married Barry so only very very there are other a British chefs who Americans no I think Gordon Ramsay to play with like you know Mexican Chinese things and you know Korean burritos and that sort of thing yeah I really think that comes from him he basically doesn't do the normal chef that I'm GonNa come clean I knew very little about that and I have never been to mission Chinese sadly can you help me out Danny Bolen was things that food isn't normal the his look is in typical the way the he collaborates with other food people or artists or fashion designers I mean I guess that's probably true it loads a field isn't it yeah for sure and I think in the food world one of the people really pushing culture forward is Danny Bolen who's the founder of mission Chinese just ten years ago authenticity was such a hot were all I'm going to take those authentic personal but I think that now we're living in a post authentic world I think right now but I do know how to make an excellent sound jam jar yeah I mean TV and I guess more recently youtube is the way that chefs become famous people basically not throw shade on these people but I feel that board them actually yeah it's funny these like celebrity superstars and they've been around for so long and you think there would be new ones all the time like there are new so really different and also his food is really really good good okay I like the sound of him and I'm looking forward to hearing more later the show grill so you were on holiday I missed you in my inbox every morning I let's talk about what you've been up to so after freeze week I quite quickly booked myself a holiday off I went up to the northwest of Scotland to the highlands a- and I read it cover to cover I mean it was extremely old school I never normally have time to do that so it was great there was one particular piece which really stood out oblivious ago she's a really really funny writer I recommend stuff that she's done generally I think this is particularly good and it was about John Updike uptake is generally Three things that I want to tell you about the first is what I wasn't holiday brought a physical copy of London review of books wow there's still exist it was a complete digital detox I had no internet no mobile phone reception for a whole week of it is the millennial dream was it was blissful she's a poet but also a writer and critic she's very much on twitter and the pieces beaten all over twitter as well he's been on the podcast right she's been on the podcast tone as a kind of crusty old mid-century misogynous India famous for these terrible sexiness that you demonstrate great complete lack of understanding of female anatomy can you remind me some of the books that uptake is written is most famous books doc Irish English from a really makes you think about the English language and about colonial histories and the real yes basically it's a really gripping surprising piece I would love everyone to read it it's in our show notes and I writer Brian Friel from nineteen eighty it set an in Ireland in eighteen thirty three the British army of that and weird way although she kind of really gets into his misogyny and is pretty scathing actually also did make me think maybe I should read some because she's actually it was hilarious and I think very perceptive essay by writer called Patricia Lockwood she is she's kind of famous on the Internet idea that literary criticism can ever really be objective that a review is ever not about the reviewer she really kind of brings herself into it in a way that because the road signs are in gallic and an English you're right I forgot about that yeah it's it's really striking when you get north of kind of I didn't know there's western and eastern and if I was ever to WANNA learn Armenian Westerner median is the one that genocide survivors sort of took with them I think the real violence of imposing of opposing language on people and kind of erasing an indigenous language. Yeah there's so many examples of that now it's I can't talk about post on twitter so tell me number two so number thirty I went to see a play last night at the National Theatre here in London called translations which is by the and it's one that's sort of dying so it's the one that my grandparents spoke mom and it would be the one that would connect me to my heritage but if I wanted to go to Armenian and what are you doing it for and who are you doing it for and what does it mean to keep a culture alive or language alive is on my mind too yeah haven't read any of them really I'm I've I've really being kind of put off I mean it's things like rabbit run as the kind of famous spun being or median again it's like getting ridiculous but but I was thinking about the fact that as I get more connected to Meyer meanness there are two dialects of Armenian Phar- about kind of the points where his writing is really good and the fact that is actually quite a pleasure to read it I think a clever piece because it's really kind of poking fun at the speak to people that's not the one that they use so the question of which Wendy you learn do you learn the one that's endangered ad learn the one that's used and and like as Rita's we do and let me just read you the first two lines because that brilliant unsought okay she says I was hired as is about more than just communicating yes about identity but it's about so much I exactly I mean it's a very fertile ground I think for players is not whether it's real or not I think that's sort of beside the point but I'm interested in why it's grown in popularity at this moment and it did make me think about how kind of keeping language alive is an important part of preserving a national identity and one that's quite distinct you know this stuff is really about astrology I am deep in it I have been interviewing astrologers I had my chart read recently in culture yes I mean this is the Financial Times astrology is a business story as well right it is yeah I mean the demand for astrology Exchan- is also a one day festival on the Saturday the sixteenth of November this is the week after the next Gen special edition it will be great electrical yeah it's very political so while I was puzzling over these galaxy road signs were being up to you and I worry a little that I'm at risk of becoming the FTC astrology correspondent. I mean I've been talking about it on this podcast quite a bit what I'm trying to figure out now yeah making a map of the country in the practice of doing this that that also trying to anglicized the the Irish placenames say back then people in Ireland mostly speed satisfy that demand so it's interesting to see how the business of this sort of spirituality is going to meet the demand with my sure and so my third thing which was linked to this is I was thinking about this idea of kind of translation and language when we were driving around in the north of Scotland last week tool I think is something like one percent of the population while but language is important and Scottish nationalism is a big movement and seeing all of these roadside put your thoughts in a future episode so onto Danny Bolen something extremely different but also in some ways learning another language I am writing a piece for you fasten you don't bring in thirty seven year old woman to review John Updike in the Year of our Lord Two Thousand Nine hundred ninety s you're hoping to see blood on the ceiling through tend that we're doing on the ninth of November called next Gen and it's going to be full of great pieces about the kind of issues like astrology the kind of shaping the lives of the next generation in your voice app on your phone tell me your thoughts and e mail it to culture call at FDA DOT com the other option is to write us and we will the food was super spicy it was hard to define it was really good I mean we a Kimchi that was covered in ice but the ice was infused with Chili oil so it was Gers at to read your birth chart and the demand for astrology APPs are really exploding and there isn't really a lot yet set up the seasons listeners they're doing lots of talks cultural staff happening this food and drinks I'm hosting a panel on feminism it's GonNa be really fun and people can this memo about how you feel about it so these are the questions that I'm curious about if you like astrology I wanna know in what way it brings value to your life kind of water in the hot tub with these colored strobe lights on the ceiling and they were like slowly moving and the music was loud spirit award for rising star chef which is kind of like the best new artist grammy of the food world he he sort of an outsider so he's made restaurants that reflect that and instead trying to eat and we were really in a different world for about the to our dinner that we had tickets at F. T. Next Gen dot com okay that's my cost over now I have a broadcast but it's a little yes Sean Dundee you really notice this and actually it's not because there are people who only speak galaxies actually nobody in Scotland to only speaks colleague and is very few people who speaker Lila can you tell me a bit more about him so the interview started about a week before Danny came to our newsroom here in New York when I went with a friend to eat at his newest restaurant mission Chinese from online video to clubbing to climate change activism will post all of these pieces in our show notes when they come out and on twitter as well and on stuff and that's exactly what it was I mean it was a lot of me saying Julie what is this while inhaling it like everybody it was delicious to this best new restaurant but he's visibly quite dramatically changed over the years he stopped drinking he started publicly soul cycling he chopped off it's a hat on I just want flag up that your astrology piece is part of this big a special issue of the life and art section of after moment I was interested in what it has been like to shake up a world like the food world which likes to follow rules I wanted to know how he thinks about what he's built and I but primarily for being the founder and chef of mission Chinese and you're celebrated for redefining and subverting what want to join me now what I can see is a lot of peak hipster kind of urban their tattoos there's a man in the different basically as we start to pull together and eventual episode on a strategy We want to put your voices in it so I would love for you to write in or email us what you like most about it and when you turn to it if you reject it I also WanNa know about that like what parts of it really don't sit well with you so the best thing to do is open talk about a year old which is in Bushwick in Brooklyn it's funny my friend Julie described I think very beautifully and that it was like being in a hot tub but like underwear red in spicy we ate lotus root and rice cakes and on the menu it said it was glazed in sticky sweet Salt Sour City talk there obviously lots of food pictures mixed in there as well it's extremely edgy and cool is that is that what he's like yeah I mean he's not just hiep's when the G. I love to hear that story I remember like the thirty one ball Bo was the bus I took I think it drops it like sixth and Balboa or night them although there's Chinese cooking can be and specifically what Szechuan cooking can be And I have a lot of questions about that but we'll have some answers before we get into like what you've done white resonates I wanted to learn a little bit about Anna how you became interested in food while my path to food mom made like everything have ground beef in it so like you know my we're very working class and my dad worked for General Motors you wanted to get to the nuance whether he's just trying to be cool and cause trouble which could be his reputation or whether he actually cares a lot and is trying to do something very deliberate wasn't Korean food and Oklahoma At that time so I just took my suitcase having walked in and the owners of the place just started speaking to me in Korean like okay I'm looking at his instagram right now which is APP Donnie. Bowen B. O. W. I E. N. Chinese food We'll put it in Australia it's listeners in case they've trying to fit in a category he sort of ostentatiously rejects them he almost makes a show of it but making a show of it is also part of his identity he's almost a brand it's interesting if I were cooking the food that I grew up eating would be cooking I grew up in Oklahoma I'm adopted I'm Korean and I would be cooking a lot they found to be more of the case Danny Bolen welcome to the podcast thank you thanks for coming so you're known for many things and to you know And his brand has developed over the past six years quite publicly he had this college bro Vibe of this guy who just stumbled in all of his hair he got very fashion forward you know he's got tattoos all over his body his nails are often painted he has a whole cultivated look so why now why did you want to talk to him at the vegetables were always out of a can and they always had some sort of like butter and then very buttery canned vegetables at every meal and typically can't I think they started me off kind of like safely they gave me like spicy pork barbecue like but they also give grilled mackerel which was like so good Burger Helper something really quick and easy they did have asparagus fresh asparagus and tells like nineteen when I chose to move out of Oklahoma to go to San Francisco to attend culinary school anything that I make which is why I think that mission Chinese so different yeah do you think not growing up with a strong food culture or like connection to a certain style anticipate meant so much for so long but I think that now we're living in a post authentic world I think right now everything really is credibility is the most important thing and I was like I don't know anything you're saying I don't be and then I was like you know I want to try anything and I can honestly say the moment I had it I remember had interesting one because a lot of food very much for a long time it's been about heritage in light someone telling the story of where they're coming from the food they ate growing up but if you look back towards the beginning is there a time that you really remember like making people happy with your food I mean I could tell beautiful story about how pursuit of like maybe flavor or the best version of something or to provide some experience I guess for me like it's it's been interesting because I haven't like I don't necessarily have like a tie I did not grow up cooking Chinese food or Asian Food I didn't grow up eating Korean food I I'm Korean food within US nineteen in San Francisco right when I got off the bus from the airport the Danny is he cooking authentic Chinese food know the answer to that is no and I think at that time ten years ago authenticity was such a hot word everything had people awesome like like something and for a long time the way to get to that end result for a lot of people would be like oh well this is the most authentic version this cause l. like who cares like I'm not trying to be thin thick because I wasn't because I'm not like I'm the least authentic chef I think when you come when things come down to in five minutes capital one this is banking reimagined open an account today inexperienced banking reimagined for yourself capital one what's in your Wallet Capital One person number actually believes in me and then Martha Stewart she got a reservation for twenty four is in San Francisco at the OPPA place and then Aberdeen came to San Francisco and he was doing a show called the layover he ate the food he would just not stop talking about how great it was and then I was like wow this ear Korean but weren't raised in Korean culture and you cooked Chinese food and that cooking introduces people Chinese culture but you're not Chinese did you know I just felt like it's something I always been eating my whole life chefs are very curious people are you know kind of on this journey now I'm GonNa take you to have the most authentic version of this a chef's chef's all we really want to do is make people happy and we all want validation we want people to like we just want to know that someone has enjoyed themselves all of them being like Oh my God so spectacular and then she had me on her show and like I made handful noodles as a really embarrassing you to have me I think I weighed food or history of food has made it easier for you to like experiment now I think it's definitely help if you detach me ten years ago when mission must starting I would be like the way you dress I mean maybe you can describe your fashion sense but it also doesn't fit category can you talk a little bit about your relationship with your identity the two season extra empty like and it wasn't because she didn't want someone to sit next it's just so the more dishes could be around for her to taste and I remember her tasting through all Yeah I think they will not we started getting those like celebrities or the people the food people that always looked up to I'd always grown up just oh my God like the the is this restaurant there called Mugabe Boca I remember that it had the science at grand opening and it's just like it's like what does that place and I was starving and I was also really excited because they're they were calm and like say that about you know anything I did you know so I think those moments I guess like you know your own identity can't be easily put in a box like this like family came into mission Chinese once they all like you know really connected over meal but now I mean like innovation way when Mantha data with Martha Stewart came to mission Chinese like maybe looked a lot different than I was drinking a lot of beer right then just happy with my hair back then like feel I feel like today you know it's all about identity in two thousand nineteen there's so much emphasis put on like who you are where you come from what you stand for I find that so you're Korean identity and and how it's changed or basically it disc do questions of identity interest you and how do you think about them are they definitely interest me the capital one N._A. I'd like New Yorkers can't have nice things like rats always ruin yeah I mean we'd moved here from San Francisco and again like I thought that I thought that was the end of my life that that identity was everything my mom and dad were like great people but you know on Sundays we kind of became this type of person that we weren't we dressed up like we wouldn't life but it was being very religious or being adopted like living in China like kind of live in a way that the odds are in favor of right so when I came here I didn't have even the right people around me to advise you know at that time with mission Chinese food two thousand twelve it was named the restaurant of the year by the make people happy and comfortable but for the longest time I was like I don't I didn't understand I didn't know why was so caught up on what authenticity was and I'm just following this like this career path but I didn't think I didn't feel genuine to me didn't feel like somebody I wanted to do I didn't WanNa like please the people that you have to please to get think after moving to New York and after opening mission Chinese Year like two thousand twelve turning thirty at that time and I'll be doing what we're doing and like my responses to people's questions as a young child would be like first thing would be like why are your parents Caucasian and you're not you're Korean. He was the buckle of the Bible Belt and Oklahoma I grew up in Oklahoma City and so everyone was like kind of like playing their best foot forward and they live their lives around the idea markets in like two thousand twelve going to mission Chinese the first one hurt in lower east side and it was really buzzy and I was like waiting in line nine forever with like a cup of beer from Keagan and you go into the back and it was sort of this whole like world the from San Francisco where we're operating as a pop up I I did not have any I- business accurate whatsoever and the food was like crazy and spicy and delicious and and then a year later it shutdown by by the alike so I think that when the topic of identity comes around like I I'd just been a journey like I'm I didn't know my parents going up and I spent a lot of my time wait but you're not with them and so the young age I learned really quickly how till they disarm people's questions make people other people comfortable which is probably why I miss chef now because I want opulent certain circles to get the mission or whatever else you need to become successful so I kind of wanted to break away from that one of my earliest memories of living in the California kids like being like it was just me I was like oh I'll take it this is great you know and like but it was an illegal space literally the back kitchen something I definitely had has struggled with a long time to be really free of that now to actually and also in the world we live in people to be interested in Like York Times which is like nuts I mean like because it was a shit hole it was like a shack literally we took the lease of this restaurant as these like wide eyed in that restaurant in the back dining room in the restaurant you have to walk this really cavernous long thousand square foot space like a long hallway his back room which was a beer garden we care about the story so much this is a good is it good yeah is it credible when did you feel like you're afraid of that when when did that change thing how has it felt for a lot of the learning that you're doing to be happening so publicly I mean I didn't know signing there was like a mouse problem that was coming from his building and it's a lower east side of course what's great is New Yorkers are really polite like they're nice was one of the reasons second reason was that you know we no one really wrote about this actually left we'd like we'd we actually did we soon the landlord because the space be renting from him they had just like enclosed in plywood and if any of the neighbors upstairs ever wanted to throw a cigarette butt out that probably would have caught on fire right so that my first big learning experience of how falling back up again and like at the time I thought that was the end of my life if you really look at it everyone gets closed by the health department at some point for some health department and also by the building department publicized everybody Kim Yeah and and it was a rodent infested I mean just remember thinking Oh God very alarming for a lot of people when we go restaurant and try to make a reservation like try to walk into on Sundays after Church people at assume is with a different family different party the word someone told me once like you know they loved to build you up to tear you down to build you back up again you know and so I didn't know I we don't us every day we would like go and act like we wouldn't act every day at Church right and the whole time I was like this doesn't seem genuine to me you know maybe a dozen other people but didn't to me and so being known that way 'cause that's a real authentic genuine true story of what life is like it's never perfect you mentioned earlier that you used to drink a beer and the lifestyle reminds me a little bit of that archetypal sort of chefs world that's described Anthony Bourdain kitchen confidential and it was unhealthy unhealthy extremely unhealthy and a big part of your public story is your physical transformation that you know like I I didn't know even mission Chinese food work we moved here I feel like San Francisco is so good to me but I had to

His brain was swimming with booze and those soapy usually saw to it that he held his liquor tonight. He needed the extra courage. His position as the uncrowned King of Skagway was being threatened and he had to make a stand. Soapy lifted the shot glass and tossed the liquor back then. He grabbed his winchester rifle and started for the do a handful of his men in tow the entourage marched in the direction of the towns wolf. Crowds people stopped on the streets to watch them.

Soapy Smith a con man who became the criminal of Denver Colorado in the late nineteenth century. This week we'll follow soapy as he expanded his operations in the state before ultimately setting sail for skagway Alaska to tap the Klondike gold rush and finally. We'll hear about the violence events that finally brought his reign to an end by the eighteen thousand. Nine hundred business was booming for thirty year olds soapy Smith. His Tivoli Saloon and gambling hall in Denver was as popular as ever and his gang continued to profit from their massive portfolio of short cons. The shell game three card Monty and the famous price soap racket but none of these compared to the money. They raked tennis so soapies. Crooked Auction House the CON was simple so men procured a bunch of cheap. Ross watches which they painted gold. The Reverend John bowers acted as Oceania. Promoting the timepieces as if they were highly valuable then members of the gang disguised in the crowd placed bids on the items until an unsuspecting customer. Desperate to get in on the action outbid them. The suckers paid as much as twenty five dollars each or almost eight hundred dollars today. They walked away giddy having won only to find hours later that all the paint had rubbed off their solid gold watch. These victims had fallen prey to a common psychological phenomenon. That occurs at auctions. A sort of excitement that can lead to artificially high prices. According to economists Jillian Coup Deepak Malhotra and J Keith Mnuchin. The competitive arousal brought on by an auction is a major motivator for those who participates looking at data from dozens of live and online auctions research has found overwhelming evidence of overbidding. Essentially buyers paid far more for products than they actually worth. Don't to her colleagues concluded that the physiological excitement aroused by the auction was a great factor. In decision making than the item's value. People wanted to win more than they wanted to deal and they're exhilaration overwhelms their rational decision. Making the soap gang understood that the trick to their con whose to creates a sense of competition that could only be satisfied by winning the auction. No matter the cost ultimately the swindled by his didn't only pay the perceived value of the wash. They paid a premium for the thrill of winning the contest based on soapies. Own Notes. Biographer Jeff Smith estimated that the auction house may have brought in the equivalent of over one million dollars today in a six month period but sadly for soapy. It wouldn't lost. The building burned down in August. Eighteen ninety one and so P was forced to put his most lucrative scam on hold. He might have found another venue talk cheap accessories but around the same time as the auction house fire. Soapy was forced to worry about bigger problems. In ninety-one a group of Pastors in Denver formed the law and Order League which aimed to crack down on saloons and gambling halls throughout the city their first point of attack was enforcing a code prohibiting sale of liquor on Sundays which had long been ignored. Joints like soapies. But the League's ultimate goal was to shut down the city's clubs altogether soapy didn't take this threat lying down in July of that year. The thirty year old conman joined forces with other saloon and gambling hall owners to form their own group called the Liberal League. The organization directly opposed the efforts of the law and Order League by supporting the local Republican Party. The Republicans tended to be more lax about regulating businesses. Like soapies and thanks to his tried and true voter fraud tactics the same US two years earlier. The Liberal League delivered them a landslide. Victory that full selection and soon the Republican Party took control of nearly every post in the city but putting his allies office didn't come without its downside in April of eighteen ninety one a bartender named Jack Divine Confronted soapy for refusing to support a candidate. He worked for soapy hit used his illegal tactics to help the man's Republican opponent win and divine didn't appreciate the slight. He showed his disapproval by giving soapy a hard punched. The jaw reeling from the blow. Soapy drew his revolver and fired multiple rounds shooting and wounding divine in the shoulder as the man fled but the confrontation was only the start of a cascade of violence in the fall of eighteen. Ninety one the Rocky Mountain News printed an embarrassing account from a man named Joe Matthews an investigates a adviser law and Order League to look into local. Bunko men like soapy Matthews failed to turn up any dirt so in an effort to save face he instead told the news of fabricates a story about how he'd beaten soapy up soapy was livid. The paper claims that he couldn't walk down the streets without being mocked by his peers in retaliation he and some of his cronies invaded the office of the Detective Agency. Matthews worked for they barged in the front doors demanding to see Matthews. Eventually it came to blows so nose was broken by the butter revolver. While some accounts tell of violence attack on Joe Matthews others suggests that their target managed to escape in the latter versions. The soap gang took a sacrifice in his stead. They dragged one of the other detectives out the building and onto the street and beat him so badly. He had to be hospitalized by the end of eighteen. Ninety one word of so piece misdeeds had emerged from the shadows and his goodwill with the people of Denver began to Sour Soon. Knowledge of violence became so widespread. The residents even started accusing him of crimes. He had nothing to do with the bad press. Put a strain on soapies family. His wife and children who he tried his best to shelter from his unsavory business practices will being confronted with the reality of soups violence. Nearly every day soon. Mary took their children and left the states. Altogether for an extended stay with her family in Saint Louis. Meanwhile soapy remained in Denver to deal with the controversy but rather than shrink from the spotlight. He sees the opportunity to take his influence to a different city. In late eighteen ninety one thirty-one-year-old soapy moved to creed Colorado an outpost southwest of Denver. Most of his gang accompanied him ready to replicate that success in yet. Another boomtown while much of the state was suffering an economic downturn creed was still growing as a result of Silva prospects in the space of two years. Its population had ballooned to over ten thousand and his residence continued to profit. Each month creeds minds yield at the equivalence of what would be millions of dollars today soapy an opportunity not only to make a buck but to install himself as a leader of the young upstart community. Not long after he arrived. He rented multiple storefronts in downtown creed one of which became soapy. Crown. Jewel the Orleans club off to in February eighteen ninety two. It was as big a hit as his Tivoli. Saloon and gambling hall was in Denver soapies reputation in the town rose so quickly that he attracted the attention and IRA of the outlaw. Robots Ford Ford who is best known for killing the legendary Gunslinger Jesse. James also opened a saloon in Crete that year and he didn't take kindly to the competition with soapy soapy schemes. Were plenty in creed. But along with the usual scams the Orleans became home to one of the more novel tricks of the con man's career. The exhibition of McGinty the petrified man in March of eighteen. Ninety two an issue with the local newspaper The creed candle reported the discovery of Preserved Body. That had been unearthed outside the city. The article described it as a case of pure petrifaction. Speculating that the corpse had been frozen in the ground for fifty years. The news created a stir in creed. Everyone was curious about the find then just weeks later. Soapy Smith advertised that he had purchased the petrified man whom he dubbed McGinty for an amount totaling. Almost one hundred thousand dollars today but mcginty was nothing but a run of the mill cadaver preserved using techniques that were more common in the late nineteenth century and soapy was the one who felt the story to the press although no one knows where they got the body or who he was soapy and his gang had planted him in the ground themselves they then staged the discovery and sale of the petrified man to drama publicity. The whole thing was one big con and it was a lucrative one. Visitors would pay twenty five cents to see this curiosity. The figure was lit by gas lamps to give it an ominous appearance and so people would sometimes stand before it lecturing on its origins and scientific significance. The real money came not from the petrified. Man is self but from the so-called Games of chance. The spectators were invited to play while waiting in line begins. He was nothing but bait to bring fresh prey into soapy snares in spite of his success soapy stay in creed didn't lost long in late. May Eighteen Ninety two men months into his tenure there. A fire gutted. The city's downtown and the Orleans club burned to the ground. Although he was optimistic that creed would continue to prosper. Soapy took the fire. This sign that he ought to return home so he packed his things with mcgeown and toe and soapy and his gang boarded a train to Denver but the city had changed in the short time he was away and soapy. Smith was no longer welcome coming up. Soapy goes to war with the governor. Hi Everyone Parkhouse.

Back to the story by the beginning of eighteen ninety three thirty two year olds soapy Smith was back in Denver after a Phya cut short his profitable run in the Boon town of creed but upon his return he discovered a more hostile economic climates than when he had left the panic of eighteen ninety three had caused a nationwide depression ending the gilded age and creating a political shift toward populism. The new governor Davis Hanson Waite heralded sweeping changes in Colorado known as a crusader against drunkenness. Gambling and other forms of vice weights installed new like minded heads of the fire and police forces with these leaders in place. His administration pressured Denver's law enforcement to crack down on the rampant vice in soapy stumping grounds of Seventeenth Street. They were determined to go off to saloons and gambling halls in particular pudding soapy Smith in the center of their crosshairs officials in Denver. However didn't take kindly to. The new governor's demands still beholden to soapy and friendly to the local drinking and gambling services. They refuse to adopt the new mandates in March eighteen. Ninety four governor wait sent in the state militia to enforce his demands but local law enforcement fought back the help of soapy and his gang. Denver's police sheriff's departments staged a standoff in city whole they were armed with a huge stockpile of guns and several cases of dynamite fearing a bloodbath. The governor ordered his forces to retreat before. An all out battle ensued but the victory was short. Lived with the backing of the State Supreme Court. The governor's anti-vice statues went into effect that April local law enforcement immediately began cracking down on Bunko operations and illegal gambling and as a result so peace gang was forced underground but even as he ran his card games behind closed doors. Soapy publicly defended his own integrity and castigated his opponents. He was quoted in the local newspaper. As saying I consider the life of the Bunko steering more honorable than that of the average politician and when speaking with a member of the city's board of Trustees soapy stood by his many good deeds. He said I am willing to put my record alongside of yours for assisting charity. I have given several thousand dollars to churches. I was intended for preach myself when the trustees suggested that he had fallen from grace soapy corrected. No no not at all. I thought thank you do more good in the business. I'm in than as a preacher. In this self-assessment soapy showed an inflated sense of his own moral character he was exhibiting version of the better than average effect. A phenomenon first. Identified in Nineteen eighty-five by psychologist mark. Alec also called the Lake Begun Affect. It describes the tendency to overreact one's own mental and social abilities relative to others according to Alec and later researchers this phenomenon is shockingly pervasive in two thousand thirteen. A team led by Constantine set. Akitas found that the better than average effect even applies to prisoners when asked about their morality. Most of the inmates questioned graded themselves as more kind generous and ethical than the average person on the quality of being law abiding. They ranked themselves as average. Judging by his own comments soapy nodes out how to rather rosy view of his own personality. He was so certain that he was one of the good guys that he saw. Anyone opposing him as corrupt but what made him. A great con artist was his ability to persuade others of his own. Virtue and many people fell for the act dating back to the early days of his price. Soap racket soapy had a knack for assuring his marks that he had their best interests in mind and he made such a good case he even convinced himself but even if he was self deluded soapy always so his business affairs clearly and with Colorado's new drinking and gambling ordinances. He couldn't deny that his financial interest in jeopardy and soon so was his freedom. In eighteen ninety-five 34-year-olds. Soapy was implicated in a case of attempted murder accounts report that his brother. Bascom who had joined him in Denver severely beaten during a bar fight while soapy looked on baskin was sentenced to one year in prison and soapy was wanted as a possible accomplice to the crime. Soapy himself claimed to have only witnessed the event but the police suspected otherwise. And they weren't about to miss an opportunity to put the city's biggest Bunko man behind bars now. A fugitive from justice soupy once again left the city where he built an empire only this time he wouldn't return soapy spent much of the next two years rooming the United States while in the northwest soapy took a couple of exploratory trips to the Yukon territory in northern Canada there were said to be deep reservoirs of precious metals there specifically in the Klondike region worth the equivalent of hundreds of millions. Today soapy wanted in on the action but rather than searching for gold. He intended to mind prospectors. In the fall of eighteen ninety-seven year soapy and some members of his gang boarded a freighter headed for Alaska. Even as the twentieth century approached the territory was not yet accessible by rail. Still thousands of prospectors flocked to the region making the difficult journey by way of boat and braving the inhospitable conditions this traffic gave rise to a newly formed township on the coast of Alaska called Skagway. The fawn north boomtown had all the hallmarks of the cities where soapy had his fortune wide. Travelers came through daily bringing their money with them thirsty for drink and entertainment to help them through the cold winter evenings. And just like his marks in Colorado. These prospectors were hoping to get rich. Quick making them vulnerable scams but perhaps most importantly skagway lay along the narrow passage to the minds. So prospectors had few options but to pass through town as soon as they arrived soapy and his gang were off to the races pulling all their old stunts three card. Monte the Shell Game Roulette and rigged poker will all on offer they also added. Some new records. Took advantage of their remote location prospectors in skagway with IGA to send updates home but because telegraph towers. Had Not yet come to that remote corner of Alaska. The town was in need of a similar resource so soapie set to creating one himself. He opened the doors to a brand new wire service that he advertised had the ability to send a message anywhere in the US. Of course it didn't actually work but like with the petrified man it was merely a guys to Lou in his marks while customers waited in line for their turn. They will welcome to partake in a variety of games and between the wire service business and the gangs to bit tricks. They made a killing in the first three weeks. In skagway soapies crew pulled in a staggering sum equivalent to almost one million dollars today. It didn't hurt that there wasn't yet an Organiz police force or local governments in Skagway. There was no risk that anti-gambling or temperance laws would force his operation underground. So instead of taking his winnings in ditching town soapy decided to settle in as he did in Denver in creed soapy ingratiated himself and his gang to the locals by promising only to target outsiders and by fashioning himself as the town benefactor he raised money for various charities and even bankrolled the construction of Skagway First Church soapy quickly became a veritable pillar of the community and the people loved him there. He didn't have to fear a group of meddling citizens like Denver's order league upsetting his business or so he thought on December thirty first 1897 an article in the skagway news announced the formation of the committee of one. Oh one it was established as a vigilance organization meant to defend. The town's piece in the absence of proper law enforcement part of that effort was putting a stop to Bunko shops like so piece but this group was very different from the one that had opposed him in Denver. They were decidedly self interested. Within months of his arrival. Thirty seven year old soapy was reported to have three joints gambling houses. That is in Skagway. The committee businessman fee at the soapy was amassing too much wealth and influence the also worried that his shady operations with tarnish the town's reputation and hurt. It's legitimate businesses so they formed the committee of one. Oh one to squash him. The tension was palpable. And that winsor of eight thousand nine hundred ninety eight of violent mishap would bring it to a boil in the late evening of January thirtieth. A man named Andy McGrath was drinking. His Phil ended establishment in downtown Skagway. At one point he reportedly took a break to have around with one of the theater goals. A euphemism for the sex workers employed at the establishment when he returned to the Bar McGrath discovered that a hundred dollars was missing from his boot convinced. The young woman has stolen it from him. He accosted the theaters owner. Jake Rice as rice and his bartender. John Fay forced McGrath to leave the man's spit out a threat to comeback and square accounts. He returned soon after accompanied by deputy. Us Marshal James M Rohan. Who had been eating across the street. When the bartender John Face McGrath crossing the street with an arms companion he panicked fe didn't know that Rohan was a US marshal. He thought they becoming to shoot up. The place fe grabbed a revolver and hid behind a car table. When the two men came through the door he began to fire shooting. Both of them in the Groin. Mcgrath died right there on the floor the US Marshall managed to crawl away but expired hours later. He left behind a young wife who had just given birth to their first child early at that very evening after discovering he mistakenly killed an officer of the Law John Fay Ranta soapy Smith and pleaded for the crime bosses protection. He did that an angry mob. Mine string him up before he was given a trial. Soapy arranged to keep face safe while things sorted out meanwhile however the committee of one one met to discuss the situation some of them called for fate be executed but so P went. Over the vigilantes heads he contacted a US commissioner and had the members of the soap gang. Deputized said they could escort the accused man out of town. It was a massive affront. The Authority of the Committee of one on one and they weren't about to let it go. Soapy may have won the battle but after this they were more determined than ever to bring him down but the committee found a savvy opponent in the season bunker man that spring soapy announced the creation of his own law and Order Society also called the committee of three. Oh three derisive nod to the committee of one. Oh one residents would later describe the two factions as rival gangs each bidding for the control of the town the tension between the groups ten skagway into a powder keg and in the summer of eighteen ninety eight a spark would make low coming up so soapy faces his final reckoning now back to the story by Eighteen Thousand Ninety Eight thirty-seven-year-old soapy Smith had fled Colorado to set up shop in Alaska. Taking advantage of the Klondike Goldrush by the spring of that year. He was earning his reputation as the uncrowned King of Skagway but soon tensions mounted between him and the Committee of one. Oh one of the Gilani Group determined to bring the CON artists down that summer the conflict reached its violence conclusion on July seventh a Canadian mining. Jd Stewart stopped in Skagway on his way home from an expedition one and he carries with him a sack of gold. Dust worth almost eight hundred thousand dollars today but because there were no ships departing that today he registered at the hotel Monday then. The hotel also happens to be the residence of soapy Smith and Stewart was given room just a few doors down from the Crime. Boss what happened? The following morning suggests that soapy may have taken notice that the man and his gold around ten am on July Eighth Stewart was approached on the street by two members of the soap gang. The Reverend John bowers and Slim Jim Foster two men introduce themselves and vice. Jewett to have a drinker so piece parlor once they arrived bowers foster and a third man. Cajoles chew. It's into putting money on a game of three Monte. As soon as he opened his wallet the men noticed it was filled with cash but instead of letting Stewart places bet they snatched both his wallet and his sack of gold dust. They threatened the minor telling him that things wouldn't go well for him. If he said anything about the theft then they walked out the pollen doors laughing fortunately for students however the witnesses president who saw the whole despicable incident. It was an open secret in town that soapy and his crew were involved in all sorts of Flimflam. People like this solution gambling houses and we're willing to tolerate a degree of cheating outright thievery however was another story ignoring the con. Men's warning Stewart went straight to the police to complain about the theft within hours word. Got Out the soapies. Men had robbed a defenseless minor and is set off a firestorm. Skagway whole economy depended on the miners coming through. No one wanted the city to become known as a place. The was unsafe for them and their gold. The Committee of WANNA one didn't hesitate to act. They arranged to convene that very day to discuss the situation and how they could use it to bring soapy down once and for all whether he ordered its own not the robbery put so Pena bind it. Only gave his opponents amunition against him and if he didn't play his cards right the fallout from the scandal could destroy his reign in. Skagway mere hours. After the robbery soapy took to the streets he spoke with the citizens of Skagway and denied any involvement in the crime. But it seems that people weren't buying his story. There were rumors about a response from the committee of one and soon would reach soapy that the incident had driven even more citizens to the vigilante group within hours. Then numbers had grown so great. They arranged a meeting at the town. Wolf. Soapy spent the rest of the afternoon holed up in his Paula steadily drinking as he weighed his options but when a group of concerned locals approached him and asked him to return the money and give up his men he refused to cede any ground. He would rather fight than fold around nine PM. One of soapies associates came into the parlor and handed him a note which read the crowd is angry. If you want to do anything to it quick. That was all the encouragement he needed full to find with whiskey. Soapie set out down State Street to confront his accusers and assert his authority soapy strodes toward the waterfront. His Winchester rifle propped on his shoulder. Half a dozen members of his gang falling behind him schools of men had gathered on the dog at the entry to the wolf. A handful stood guard ready to stop soapy if he should show his face among them with Jesse Murphy. Young Irish immigrants and frank read a bartender who had been friendly with soapy before taking up with the committee of one read was the only one who is armed. Soapy stopped for a moment said a word to his men and stepped out onto the warf. His crew waited behind a strode forth. Cursing the gods and threatening to use his rifle on the crowd terrified. Most of the men fled or watch quietly as soapy went by only one frank. Reid stood his ground against the I. Rates Gangsta read told his former friend that he couldn't let him pass the two men argued for a few moments though. No one watching could make how clearly what words were said what happened. Next was straight out of a Western so p stepped up to read raised his winchester and swung. It's at the bartender's head. Read block the blow and gross the barrel of the rifle trying to wrest it from its owner as they struggled read managed to draw his own gun. He aimed at so p and pulled the trigger. The hammer clicked a faulty cartridge. Both men reared back cock their weapons and fired simultaneously so peace round landed in reads leg reads. I short missed but a second bullet hits so in the leg. A third grazed his arm soapy loaded another round in the chamber and fired again. This second shot struck. Read in the optimum. The bartender collapsed his blood pooling on the blanks of the wolf shocked. The two remaining God's ran over while one attended to read the other Jesse Murphy young the rifle from soaps hands and turned it on him. The CON man cried out my good. Don't shoot but Murphy fired sending a bullet straight through so piece hot. He died almost instantly. Twelve agonizing days later frank reads succumb to his wounds as well but he would always be remembered for ending the reign of the uncrowned King of Skagway with soapy gone. There was little to stop the committee of one. Oh One from implementing their plans for Skagway by attacking frank read soapy had proven himself to be the scoundrel they claimed he was his men. Were quickly heard it up and run out of town and within weeks. Every member of the soap gang was on a ship headed back to the mainland soapies wife. Mary traveled from Saint Louis To skagway shortly after his death but she didn't return with his body instead he was buried beneath the town where his career had ended. Though eighteen. Ninety eight was the last year of soapies life.

They threaded across the United States from Seattle to New York City cemented. His reputation as the King of the frontier conman many of these tales about soapy inflated his stature making him a larger figure in death than he had ever been in life early biographies paint his story as a sweeping western adventure and they depict soapy as a romantic figure rather than the Opportunistic Scoundrel.

Pete Buttigieg Exclusive
"Next is Radha where we usually take just ten minutes to get you smarter on the clinic, tech, business and politics. I'm Denver MAC. But today we have a special slightly longer dishing featuring my conversation with Pete Buddha. Judge the Thirty-seven-year-old mayor of south bend, Indiana and a democratic candidate for president. Here. We go. Mister, it's been said for a long time that cities are America's public policy and kind of innovation labs, and you've had lots of ideas and thoughts about how to make things run more efficiently in south bend. So basically why run for president rather than continue to test out? These ideas in your city. I love the opportunity to be mayor get by going on eight years, we've been able to do things I'm really proud of for our community, but we're also operating national environment that is making it harder and harder for Bayer's to do our jobs. And I think we would be well served to have Washington begin to look more like our best cities and towns rather than the other way around which is what I fear will happen. If we don't begin finding ways to bring the best of local leadership and local problem solving to the highest offices at the city level. We are compelled to innovate compelled to solve problems if you become president. How do you make the jobs of mayors and governors easier? Well, for one thing we create an environment that empowers good local leader. To do their work that means directing resources directly to local communities in ways that right now are often either held up at the federal level or sometimes overly mediated by the state level. It also means making sure that the intangible roles of the highest office, for example, the simple function of bringing people together and something people to their highest values takes place. You know, right now, we're dealing with often an atmosphere of of fear at the local level and people being pitted against one another. They comes in part from tone. That's being established from the White House and filtering on down into our schools into our neighborhoods and into our society at a very granular level that makes it that much tougher for mayor to some community toward a common purpose dealing with challenges ranging from gun violence to infrastructure investment at the local level. You're known for talking a lot about both a and automate and the possible labor dislocations that come from that. So from your perspective, a robot going to come and take some. One's job. And there won't be another job for them. And if so do we need a universal, basic income, or are, you of the mind that the jobs will get replaced, and the technology will create new different jobs for the future in the long term and on average. There will be as many and as good jobs created as those that are replaced. The problem is most of us don't live in the long term and most of us don't live in the average for specific people and those transitions could last a lifetime. And if they happen to you, it's not important to you. What's happening in the aggregate? It's important to find a way to make a living and and succeed going forward. Also think though that that we've made a mistake by assuming that this is strictly an issue about replacing income, you know, even when you find a way to get somebody a new position or a new source of income. We're not speaking what I think is the deeper issue, especially affecting people in the industrial midwest where I live associated with the changes to our. Economy. If we want to prepare for a world where people may be changing jobs or even changing careers in my generation more frequently than people in my parents generation change job titles than we need. Also, recognize the shocks that are gonna come to people self understanding and sense of identity because it used to be that you could get your sense of identity, partly from a career long relationship with a single employer and we need to face. The fact that that's going to become the exception rather than the rule in the future. There are ways that we can prepare for that. But if we don't if we don't find ways to help people establish roles in their communities, strict and civic involvement that provides a bridge when it comes to understanding how you fit in even as as your professional life may go through a lot more change if we failed to do that. Then there will be a lot of other very ugly sources of filling that void including you know, some of the worst kinds of of nationalism white identity politics. I think is being offered up as an alternative for people who no longer understand how they fit into the world when they're professional environment is changing every few years, respectively is that a question of just different education. And I don't mean skilled trainings at the community college level, but more fundamentally maybe even going back to early childhood one thing we're piloting right now in south bend with support from philanthropy as the lifelong learning platform, that's about a lot more than whether you get this Yale or or that course credit. It's really about making sure people are resilient working toward an environment where you know, automation is going to really do away with the most repeatable physical tasks in our jobs, and it's gonna leave us with the parts that have the most to do with critical thinking human interaction at building those skills, you know, not just for people going to university. But really for for everybody that's going to be the name of the game. If we wanted to quick people to be resilient to succeed as technical changes. Come along that, you know, even today we? Really adequately predict you know, trying to be one or two steps ahead in the technical skills. Game has not enough we've got to make people resilient toward the kinds of changes that are going to come even those particular flavors. A change are hard to guess at today. Looking forward you mentioned China, and there's the sentiment Silicon Valley right now, particularly when it comes to artificial intelligence that China is eating our lunch and is doing so because of government funding for it. So I'm curious, particularly given your military background and your policy background intended. Fifteen years. Are we going to be way behind China because of what they're doing now largely? Yes, I think you know, if you look at how investment is being made there in the billions, and then you look at our own what was offered up is kind of an early entry something resembling day is strategy that came out of the administration recently, you know, I it assigns nothing close to those kinds of resources, and this is not a game where we can afford to be left behind. There will always be some forms of social of you know, important fun. Demento in basic research that is not going to happen from the private sector. The corporate world alone requires a national strategy, and I would expect the country the United States the country that literally invented the internet in a publicly sponsored research environment to be a head of the curve instead of as we currently are falling behind when it comes to things like AI deep learning and the kinds of technologies concept Haag nation that are really going to power the twenty th century. There's also been a lot of talk on the democratic side, not just among presidential candidates. But also sitting legislators over the past year to about worries of concentration of power in a small handful of big tech companies. So do you believe that the next administration Justice department should look at companies like Google Facebook? And Amazon from an antitrust perspective. There's no question that and this goes beyond tack that the US has become frankly went down guard when it comes to -opoly policy, and too often the concentration of wealth. Has been allowed in our system to turn into the concentration of power. Now, some of that has to do more. I think with the political side and making sure that we have controls on the role of money in politics and other ways that economic power has been allowed to get converted into political power. But we also have to look at and market power. And look at one of market really is. And when competition is being squelched when dominance of one part of the marketplace is being turned into another, you know, in some ways, these are of monopoly problems and market problems that even though they're associated with Tekere almost old fashioned to their nature, and it requires a greater attention to the kind of, you know, controls on monopoly power that keep our economy competitive and our democracy democratic, but let me go to the specifics though, because there's at least popular affiliation between you and Facebook you've been friendly with Mark Zuckerberg and had them out the south bend should Facebook, Amazon and Google potentially have antitrust issues. Basically are they monopolies? Yeah. I don't wanna prejudice future proceedings, and you know, obviously, each company has its own profile. But there's no question that concentration that should set off alarms from a market perspective. And there's a whole other set of issues that are less the antitrust a bucket, but but also need attention having to do the ownership of data, and deciding when we're going to be effectively the product, you know, the Europeans have been much more serious than we have about policies establishing what it means to own data. What relationship we have two data? We create what access we should be able to assert in order to find out. What's been done with our data and who's been looking at it? And why and while the GDP are may not be exact template the copy and paste for the US. It's certainly the case that the US is behind and by the way, not being served. Well, in some of these spectacles where you see legislators attempting for political reasons to show that that they? Can hold the tech executives accountable. But in these hearings making it abundantly clear that they barely understand the thing that they're supposed to be regulated Mr Mayor final question. He was a simple one. Are you having fun running for president? Yeah. I am. You know, you get to travel the country get to meet really interesting people, and you know, the the pace of it is demanding. But also everyday you reminded of what's at stake because you know, people come to these events and right now on the road back from Iowa. And they're the folks that I've been meeting in these early states are asking really profound and really important provoking questions. It's it's not all kind of parochial concerns. And and I it's not kind of small stuff, they they wanna know about the future the Republic, they take their responsibilities as early stay voters very seriously. And so the kinds of questions that they bring to talk to any potential candidate. Are you know, serious questions that make you stop? And and reflect on you know, the the way in. In which in our country. There's nothing quite like the the American presidential process for surfacing, the most important issues of our time one final question because you talked about Iowa you've advocated for America getting rid of the electoral college system in the past basically suggesting it's not really democratic. So should the democratic and Republican parties still be allowing Iowa and New Hampshire to winnow the field? Well, you know, say my experience so far is that it's really impressive. How seriously these voters take their role, and and the intention Audi they bring to their you know, it's fair to ask questions about how we can make sure that the process is as loose of and participatory as possible. And I know there've been a lot of shifts, and we can try expect to see that cycle the cycle among the states that we should also continue exploring things like what they're doing here with what will be the first as far as I know the first attempt to a virtual caucus in Iowa, which is intended to, you know, make sure that more people are included who've made. Not have an easy time getting to physical caucus, but I will say, you know, somebody really values the the some of the old school face to face dimensions, politics things that simply don't come across in virtual or television campaigning. I'm glad that that there are processes that are at least in some way in the banks. Even if everybody gets to vote primaries, some processes that break that down a little bit get it down to size and allow voters to assess the the human qualities, and frankly voters in every state watching what goes on in some of the early states to assess things that are just a little bit hard to read from cable, television, interviews and digital media presents Mr Mayor. Thank you so much for joining us. Thanks for having me. Thanks listening and to my producers, Adam Grassi and Tim show. Vers have a great national girl scouts day. And we'll be back tomorrow with another pro rata podcast.
Heart and Commerce | Chapter 4
"Just a heads up before we begin this episode. The Baron of Botox deals with difficult topics including depression and suicide. It is not recommended for young audiences stay tuned to the end of the episode for information resources for anyone who is suffering from depression or suicidal thoughts. Let's begin the show it. I'm gene gottfried every June. I'm the director at Goop and I've been writing about and editing stories about beauty. I in Nagazine and now ah in the early ninety like Linda Wells gene. Gottfried Jin Remembers. The Stigma Botox had when Fred brant arrived on the New York City beauty. Seen it was something like a dark art or Voodoo hardly the kind of treatment of feel good or like Gwyneth paltrow's goop would be promoting alongside ethically sourced Kashmir and and nontoxic deodorants. Not that feel good reason. We're exactly the rage back. Then people were talking about both off in sort of recently come out as the thing and will always gonNA freeze your face and will you botulism and I remember I wrote about it my column I wrote about that experience. I think I grew up. I don't have to dig it out but I decided in the thing that you know that stuff is the most toxic substances on earth. People are crazy injecting it into themselves and then you know I see the result but I'm like wow it was the beginning of both vo talks. Also certainly my doctor brand Dr Brandt win over skeptics like gene with something other than science. His secret sauce she says was the way he connected with. His patients. Really good certainly in my industry really good hairdressers really good makeup artist really good dermatologists. I think they take a lot of whoever their client is sitting in front of them. Take a lot of that person. Energy like in not just on to Dr Graham similar sort of top haired violence or something like that where they're looking and taking in that person really fully to figure out what beautiful about them and very different from I think. Sort of leverage talents are like how can I pay. You know the thing thing I already know onto that person sort of make them look like a beautiful person. She tells me about this one time. She went to see Dr Brandt during a specially difficult period Korea in her own life his empathy during that appointment stuck with her. I remember when I got divorced. I came in and I knew I was getting divorced. He took a really long longtime to to say. You're going to be fine and this is going to be good. A dermatologist. Appointment is incredibly intimate. Thing you're right up in someone stays and energy and and you're talking about how you appear to the world and your insecurities and so yeah I do think that's why that memory stands out in my mind is because I know he did that with everyone wasn't just like going in and being like you need. You know those good he later was was like absorbing people's energy in a way that I think both beautiful and very giving but also would make life hard. I think from imperative entertainment. I'm Justin Harman. And this is the baron of Botox episode for Heart and Commerce Back in August I went to meet with Dr Brands. Protege Dr Robert Analytic for the second time the doctor. Dr Analytic is much younger than Dr Brandt. He was the one who joked at the memorial. That Dr Brandt was sixty five year old with the thirty-seven-year-old body while he was a thirty seven year old with the body of a sixty five year old. The two were professionally inseparable. The last five years of Dr Brands Life our first visit was something of a get to know you. This second one was was a bit more experimental. I asked Dr Analytic if he'd be willing to recreate the experience of getting talks with Dr Brandt to emulate as best as he can the way his mentor would appraise patients face and casually jovially inject it with a cocktail of products intended to restore a face to what he called harmony Germany. The whole thing has a kind of you have to see it to believe it lower and since I can't really see it I imagine this is the next best thing I also really WANNA capture. Sure sound nearly. Anyone who has gotten botox is heard a lo- crunching noise as the liquid tries to find its way under the skin and onto the muscle. I've talks about five times in the past few years. I I got it in two thousand seventeen when I was thirty. Two after the birth of my first child to eliminate a horizontal line in my forehead that had been bugging me in pictures then. I just felt compelled to maintain it during my second. Pregnancy actually missed the limited range of motion in my forehead. kind of like the okay. I missed the feeling of SORE ABS or like having ABS. The crunching sound is one of those things. That's alarming. At first. And then somehow routine like the noxious smell of bleach. When you're getting your hair highlighted or the discomfort of having a blackhead removed during a facial? Much to my surprise Dr Analytic agreed to all of this your millennial only millennial donate undo consent form after hours and the space offices are empty. Save for me Dr Analytic Mellick and a sound guy named Ryan my producer. Jason found at the eleventh hour. The three of us are in the same treatment room. I've seen in so many videos of Dr Brandt. Ah demonstrating his abilities. While I'm filling out my paperwork I take the opportunity to needle DR A. That's what people call him. Doctor about the Oscar winner I saw hustling to her SUV. While I was downstairs waiting for Ryan to arrive is it possible that I saw a celebrity exiting. This building from a different location. Hires arriving here today. Sometimes people WANNA leave several weeks. They don't feel feel like they're being seen after answering a variety of very personal intake. Questions myself like whether I suffer from anxiety and whether it had more than four drinks in a single the past year we begin the treatment. Okay I just want to make sure we get the right here. The muscle bringing eyebrows together. Relax to oh more time Freddie's to say frown. Relax frown relax. Okay frown from a relaxed. There's a pinch their her. Did you hear it that right there sort of a squirt followed by a snap crackle pop. That's the botox going into my face. Dr Analytic repeats this injection which he administers quickly and in a down than up motion four more times between my eyebrows to combat eleven lines or or those vertical creases. That make you look tired and at this point I have a three year old and a six month old so yeah. I'm wicked tired. Then we do something wild wild. I had heard that. Dr Brandt was famous for injecting botox in an unexpected place. The tip of the nose. Turn down it's an aging sign there. These images of these old people with these enlarge. Turn down noses that they didn't have when they were in the twenties and thirties. There are ways to think about what's causing the problem and there are muscles at the base of the knows that where they flex they allow turned down at the tip of the nose and again both talks can relax a muscle. Suffer targeting that muscle the ability that muscles Affleck's and turn on the notice reduced. That's right I got a needle right in my big smile and relax. Okay we're GONNA check the knees the needle at the base of the nose to pinch breathe. Breathe breathe it. Turns out I had misunderstood. I understood the mechanics of this particular procedure. Wasn't that it's two seconds kind of right when we said the tip of the nose. I expected the tip of my nose. What's the problem? So that's what I misunderstood but I still got it. He didn't really hurt. Good all right then. Yeah I feel great that would restore face to harmony just five injections and then one we we do some more and I'm happy to do more. What else would you do planning more? Go just Hollywood okay so we would actually the crows feet. I went to the neck bands. Let's do it really. Let me get some more performers. While I'm waiting for Dr Analytic to return learn. I think about the significance of the room wherein make no mistake. It's look his purely medical sterile surfaces white cabinets safety trash cans for proper syringe disposal and striker brand medical furniture but it doubles is so much more than a treatment room. It's therapist's office. A members only club and not not unlike a place of worship a sacred space where rituals are observed and repeated in a sixty minutes Australia segment from two thousand nine title. Changing face. Dr Brandt is filmed in this very room with his good friend and personal shopper. susie Isaacs the video shows. Brandt nimbly injecting suzy's face while a technician nation holds what appears to be ice packs to redden areas despite the bizarre nature of the event. Brandt and suzy are at peace with one another. They're actually harmonizing monopolizing to Judy Garland's Easter parade as he works. Let's get the creams on the faith and your age we will race today. His patiently susie Isaacs on the Fifth Avenue the accuse she works in the fashion industry and fifty. Something is just a touch. All of the material bill himself. He's such d'you talented artists on plenty his hands. Whatever he wants to do? I trust him implicitly. Half a dozen more jabs and suzy has both hawks. Nick lift a doctor Bryant special to can you get rid of the Turkey again. Gobble Gobble a few bruises later. Suzy's Hannah face lift without without the stitches and post operative recovery. You're looking good tone of the. TV segment is cheeky at one. Point the interviewer actually challenges Dr Brandt to make the variety of facial expressions. He takes the ribbing in stride. You show me that again. I can't frown shabby you. You're trying to Diane. Can you look angry. Could have been surprised. I can with my personality Suzie. It's clear takes her friend and his expertise seriously at the end of her treatment. Brandt praises his work before issuing a command titan when he says this. Suzy jets or bottom teeth. Out to create an exaggerated under bite andbranch slips one more needle into her neck down than up. You're looking good mrs type. Only catchy is the ten thousand dollar treatment wiz off after about three months. But look at this. This is suzy you can see. What a change? She had a lot of that jolly nece Internet. Golan was irregular. This is how susie used to loop seven years ago. She started to get old now. She's young all that in twenty minutes and I'm ready to go back to work ten years later and I'm here in the same exact room where susie became young again. Doctor Returns with a bouquet of syringes changes and begins to decorate my jaw and neck and even that little no-man's-land between my eyes and ears with pinpricks and he does it all with this campy sense of humor. I can't tell whether that's because he's channeling. Dr Brandt or because he too finds humor in the absurdity of the situation yes here we go big smile. I have never had anything in the crow's feet before. Can you tell virgin engine Kreil from a Non Virgin Crow. Look like they've been around the block we just keep going to your lower lip analogous l. e. s. like you're making what expression he fat lip training and this little rippling there. Here's here's a pinch. That mentality muscle right in the John Travolta that one was the spiciest of them yet really more than us. That's that's interesting okay. Tiger neck again at which one. What are we going to know MHM relax? I'm going to be talking about you on page six makeover Brazil Pagan relax trump mourner for perfect and the entire takes only fifteen minutes. When we're done I offer to pay but Dr Analog waves me off off later I ask how much the treatment I received with typically cost a patient and he tells me somewhere between one thousand and two thousand dollars afterwards? We sit down in his office which actually used to be Dr Branch Office. There's a framed photo of the two of them on the bookshelf. And they like the last two people you would imagine posing for a picture together other doctor analytic though handsome. Has that whole rumpled dad vibe going for and we did spend a lot of time together. Fred would joke that he was my work wife. I Yeah I remember I would get so used to being around him that I would forget that people would do a double take a look and see. WHO's this guy who I'm with because kind of didn't look like we matched necessarily necessarily we would do the end of the day what he called the green light walk because we didn't live far from each other on the west side of midtown or towards Chelsea? We would walk home and I think it was whether he kinda blow off steam from the day and just wouldn't stop a walk. Blue would walk in at every intersection. Whichever way the green was pointing we'd walk in that direction as we were heading towards where we were trying to go but we have a lot walks together and a lot of time together? He injected his face. Whereas you to my naked I appears that you have not drank that particular? kool-aid Hulu have you ever been tempted or have you ever gotten any Bo talks or anything like that. I've had procedures stuff but I think that I do more laser. Everyone has an aesthetic and how they want to to be and how they want to present themselves. He approached his face differently. Used to be his office right now. We're sitting in his office and the office were. We just treated you or the patient room was a room where he would be running out of routinely to treat his patients. I joked with you earlier that he would say that he's in show business. Santa what else he did. He was a performer. He would say he would dance. He'd be laughing and part of the treatments not just that he was so good at what he did but people had so much fun and he was performing to make that happen. It was an important part of its and you want people to feel positive and have a good time and I heard him say that about the staff and the doctors and everybody but he would come down off for that high and we would just relax and he would be. I don't want to say more normal but his energy level would come back to a baseline where you can talk over things day to day things cadore things and personal interesting and things like that. At the end of the day we would sit and just talk back then. Dr Branch Office was notorious for wait time so long that some patients would call in advance just to see how behind he was running. The lobby was teaming full of women. Some famous some rich many both hanging around sometimes sometimes for hours at a time to see him. He would never part of the reason that it happened is that he would spend so much time with a patient and individual patient. Somebody needed anything. Saying he wouldn't rush the procedure also half the time. It was sometimes a therapy session and people are being a personal issues. And he wouldn't rush that either he would talk about that. Somebody has something going on in their lives. Talk about it. And he wouldn't rush out of the room so everyone got their time with him and if you were later in the day am I mean. They were fairly backed up. The first appointment was very popular appointment. Yeah but at the end of the day. Fifteen minutes with Dr Brandt or Dr analytic cost thousands of dollars and I only got Bo. Talks with fillers lasers one appointment with Dr Brandt could easily run upwards of seven thousand dollars therapists like really early. Good therapists cost a fraction of that. And don't get me wrong. This stuff works but it doesn't work the way you might think. I was so excited about my new face that a week after seeing analytic as sent a Selfie to my best friend Lizzie. Do I look different. I asked she wrote back immediately. No it's not lizzy would be right exactly but that the changes so subtle and so in tune with my own assessment of my face that there's no way she or anyone else could really see it the way I do because as someone once told me women see are faces as a collection of parts when Lizzie is is that Selfie. She sees me her perfect friend doing her weird mirror face when I see that Selfie I see my good angle the one where my I more. Prominent cheekbone is showing and my better eyebrow is on display and a version of my face that makes me feel comfortable in that Selfie. I see both a promising promising future. And a gentle softening of the past. My body perhaps forever changed from having to kids isn't pictured my home the clutter and forgotten toys is pictured. My Skin looks radiant. And Dewey and my nose or fuck it. My nose looks cuter. I knew that I was going to be on a reality television. Show and I just heard about the tastic and extraordinary Fred brand and I felt like if I was going to be on TV. I really you know had to go to the best of the best. You may recognize this voice. As one of the most divisive cast members on the real housewives of New York City Aviva Drescher was the lifelong a New Yorker and ex wife of notorious playboy. Harry Dubin she also memorably banged her prosthetic leg on a table during the season. Six finale let me tell you something. The only thing keeping together speak only think that artificial or faith about me and right before she decided to wade into the Bravo Gauntlet lint where all people do is insult you for sport. That's what they do. It's like being a gladiator with tits and reality television. Did you say gladiator with tits. Yeah she she decided to get a face tune from Dr Brandt. What was it that you were hoping to achieve by seeing Fred? Look my best to be the prettiest that I could be. Do you remember your first this consultation with him and what he seems like and what you guys talked about I just remember going. I remember always waiting for hours. I waited a long time. I remember bracing myself for the price because I had heard. He's very expensive. I just remember him. Being extremely extremely intensely gentle very intense like an artist he really wasn't looking to sell products or is it really looked at me as though I was a work of art and he was going to improve me and it was something that I felt from his soul. He was very gentle gentle gentle man. After I went to Dr Brandt and I had been to several other doctors my husband looked at me and was like wow. This really is incredible. What about like you really look good? Instead of the intersection between art and commerce. Dr Brandt lived at the even more nebulous intersection between heart and commerce and two women hoping to evade the ticking clock of time or just to feel like gladiators with tints it made him invaluable mm-hmm despite his willingness to share his methods with his associates there were elements of Dr Brown's practise. That simply couldn't be taught Dr Analytic. It's not that he's okay with that. There's definitely an empathy when I think about Fred though was on top of the science and a little bit of the eccentric behavior and it was a combination action of nerd and cool. He was an unusual combination. And I think that that combination worked in a way where people were thrilled to be around. He was the guy who knew all the signs he knew Kanada me. He knew how to approach it but he was also wildly fawn and actually so cool in that setting and so I think that when the celebrities who come in and out they clicked with him because because he was fun and he could. There wasn't empathy but he also just understood the world around them and he could talk about it and an extended the things that you know so many celebrities do enjoy for talking about celebrities the fashion and the entertainment. I look back on old pictures on instagram of me and him. And this is one on his. Where he's wearing airing? This Yves Saint Laurent long coat with some sort of metal chains in the back. What are you awake? Oh what's wrong with me just nerd but there was a coolness to it that might have seen very foreign. People didn't know him but once I got to know him they would see it and I think people really connected to him. So is that something you can learn. I know I think that if somebody can connect with people they can be in that role. There is a mutual validation. When you're with a celebrity and celebrity see you but that just continued to build for him as they want us to spend time with him and so he became one of the first celebrity dermatologist?
