"So he also has my respect over what he did a couple of days ago, kind of bucking a more normie trend of what some Republican governors would do. He went all in and did the right thing here. So a father, Scott Thomas Smith, shows up at the school board and was trying to get the school board's attention that his daughter was raped. And or sexually assaulted, we don't know the details, but raped is not incorrect by a trans student and the school board covered it up, because of course the major institutions of power in this country will go to great lengths to pander to the trans lobby, the alphabet mafia, and the purple haired jihadis. The NCAA did this against Riley Gaines. They'll do whatever, anything they have to do to pander to the trans, they'll do that. So this trans person who raped his daughter, he was trying to get the school board's attention. Hey, these bathroom policies resulted in my daughter being raped. He was confronted by a agitator and a massive verbal confrontation ensued. He got upset and he should got upset. His daughter was raped, but instead he was charged with obstruction of justice and disorderly conduct. The father was charged with obstruction of justice. Let's get this picture here. And here is a father who is just in a state of primal rage. And boy, would I be in a state of primal rage. And you, if you wouldn't be in a state of primal rage, I doubt your love of your daughter. I'll be honest. And of course, as the Democrats, that's him right there, begging for somebody to listen. My daughter was raped by a trans person in a restroom. My daughter was raped by a trans person in a restroom. No one would listen. Instead the trans activists called him a domestic terrorist. And the trans people get what they want, he got indicted. Not to mention the school board covered it up, they sent the trans rapist to another school, where I believe the trans rapist raped again, if I'm not mistaken, if my memory serves me correctly. They just sent him to another school and they covered it up, criminally covered it up. So now this man, Scott Smith, was facing criminal charges and was convicted. Governor Glenn Youngkin, to his great credit yesterday, issued a full and complete and absolute pardon for Scott Smith. This is the right move, Glenn Youngkin. That's exactly right. And Glenn Youngkin in his interviews has been unwavering, by the way, in his reason. He didn't do this kind of like, well, you know, there's facts on both sides. He leaned in. I don't know if we have the tape or not, it's fine. He said he did what any father would have done. It's the right answer, Glenn Youngkin. The 15-year-old attacker, the rapist, was found guilty of sexually assaulting his daughter and then did it again at a different school. But of course, if you're trans, you get all the privileges. The whole society will reconfigure itself because of your mental delusion and your mental illness, even though his daughter was raped. This is the same state where a girl was basically transitioning by her school while keeping it secret from her parents, and this led to her getting sex trafficked. Virginia schools are largely demented right now. This is the right move by Youngkin. This crisis is not going to fix itself overnight. One of the reasons why Virginia schools are demented is because they're the richest counties in America. And they say, what do you mean? Wealth, secular wealth, merges seamlessly with academic wokeism. Secular wealth and wokeism is like a marriage made in heaven. It's a match made in heaven. Because you have white liberals that, the wine moms, if you will, with these massive existential voids, and they try to fill it with something, and they fill it with 1619 Project, queer theory, and their kids become basically, it's a petri dish for wokeism. Very similar, by the way, to the Highland Park, Illinois Country Club story of the poverty simulation. In a story where we get almost nothing but negative news in this news cycle, this is a shining light. Glenn Youngkin did the right thing here. He should be praised, and I hope more Republican office holders and leaders use their political power to defend parents. Hey everybody, Charlie Kirk here. I'll tell you who the unsung heroes of COVID are. Of course, the frontline workers. But what about those business owners who hung in there and paid their employees? If you stayed open and paid your people, you could be eligible for up to $26,000 per employee at COVIDTaxRelief.org. $26,000 per employee, this is not a loan. There are government funds you don't have to pay back. All types of businesses, including nonprofits and churches, can be eligible, but you need to apply now, because Congress may pull back these funds. Go to COVIDTaxRelief.org. It has helped tens of thousands of businesses just like yours secure over $500 million.

Conrad michael's no socialist firm has ever failed the bar exam. No kidding and now it's time for tea. Three answer time man. I'm not looking forward to this. Okay i do so. This was a company contract with the builder to constructing new corporate headquarters at a fixed price of one hundred million dollars at the time. The structural steel was widely available was included in the contract as a six million dollar line item before work began. There was a catastrophe tornado. Shutdown the structural supplier in the country and as a result the price on structural steel increased by twenty percent Builder told the the company and said hey There was this increase in steel. So we're gonna have to charge you an extra million dollars. There was an oral agreement between the parties to increase the project price. Two hundred one million dollars they they built the project and then the company paid the hundred but refused to pay the one. What happens if the builder sues the company for one million dollars. You deliberated between all the answers before narrowing it down to be no because there was no consideration for the modification of the contract were see yes because the companies promise was supported by consideration. And then you in the coin. Both pixie thomas. I have to tell you for the first time in a long time. Even thomas chance law firm. These answers were like an d. I really zagged on this one instead of zigging. I dunno as this is okay. What happened here. So what happened here is. This is a a modification to a contract modifications to contracts are specifically exempted from the rule of consideration so consideration both parties get something and the idea is look in the main contract. Both parties were getting something. Yeah so we don't want to have to go through the rigamarole. Which i thought but i just didn't like the answer. The other answers had that so it's covered by section eighty nine of the restatement of contracts which says the bottom of an executory contract and executory contract just means a contract where they're still part of it left to perform right and it says a promise modifying duty under contract not fully performed on either side is binding a if the modification is fair and equitable in view of circumstances not anticipated by the parties when the contract was made four be to the extent provided by statute or see to the extent that justice requires enforcement in view of a material change of position in reliance on the promise So here you have. A classic case parties agree to it. It's oral which is fine Contract does not have to be in writing. You can specify right. You can say in a contract any modifications here too but the but the question doesn't say that it is not required by the statute of frauds to be in writing Statute of frauds applies in six circumstances. I can't name them all off the top of my head but Remember them the big thing to remember is if it's for the sale of goods exceeding five hundred dollars if it is for real estate or if it is for a contract that cannot be performed within one year and i by the way cannot is read philosophically like at the You know at the existential level. Click other words. The contract says we will provide this to you. You know every month for the next thirteen months. That's a contract that can't be performed a year but even if it says like you know we will repave all of downtown detroit and it will take thirty five years. We estimate that will take at least thirty five years. A court will be like why they estimated that a but who knows they could have been really really efficient and as long as it's possible to do the contracting less than a year It is not covered by the statute of frauds. There are like. I said there are three more. I remember memorizing six conditions for the bar exam but the bar exam was from years ago and i cannot remember those others right now and i would just look them up right now but i have so not subject to statute of frauds doesn't have to be in writing because the modification is fair and equitable and because the parties agree to it And because there were circumstances not anticipated by the parties in the contractors made the modification is binding. You gotta pay the whole hundred one million it. That's also why i mean you. You did correctly pick a yes answer but you said yes. The companies promise was supported by consideration. It wasn't right here. The the company just said we're gonna do the thing that we originally promised to do. So that's not additional consideration for the modification the company is the one getting the job done or like having it done for you so you. You're we'll leave that in there. Because i misread actually look at over a couple of times to make sure i look. This was a question as the dancer was d. Is what you're saying right. yeah. I just didn't think that that was the thing that was going. But i guess the based on you know i almost had it because the of the question would be such. That d is the only thing left to to to question. you know. it doesn't all the other stuff is kind of unsaid. And that's the trick of the bar you know it's like you once you've gone through the fact that this doesn't have to be in writing and these other things. The only thing left over is well. Is it fair and equitable. And i guess that's why it's d- yeah. That's that's right and and let me say since i since i miss read the answer in dismissing it. I don't know of any requirement in contract law and our ego eared listeners. I'm sure we'll flood us with With emails if i'm wrong on this that requires consideration for one party but not by between both parties..

"Line how we got here. With the julio jones trade for those who have been in a cave for awhile. Julio jones has been traded tennessee titans in exchange for a second round pick and fourth round. Pick in twenty twenty. Three in the falcons will send the course. Julio to tennessee along with a six round pick in twenty twenty three So jeff we know the compensation we know. The trade is is pretty much done as point. i wanted to backtrack to where a lot of this really started. Which was several years ago. We've found out sort of Through reporting Since really march april timeframe. It seemed like there was a you. Know some consternation. Between julio and the falcons and what. We did that start. Was it in the midst of the contract negotiations. Back in two thousand seventeen two thousand eighteen Is it a little bit later than that. Where do you think that things start to go sour between him and the organization nods question database for having me from an economic standpoint. It started in two thousand eighteen because at that point three years left on a contract. Extension the falcons led by thomas smith at that time understood. They probably would be facing an extension the following year even would have two years left and i know they had budgeted in before that two dozen nineteen season to give him an extension even with two years left and i believe it was agreed on by all parties front office jimmy sexton whoever and then out of the blue julio wanted a contract adjustment before doesn't eighteen and i'm i'm pretty certain that the organization was adamant against that that was actually right when i left the agency to go the athletic actually a story inside the week of me leaving. I think some people in the ajc were were convinced that i was holding. The story still have really is not the case. I really out after i left and it was. It was clear that the falcons did not want to make any adjustment number one. There were still three years. Luckily as deal number two They don't have any money in two thousand eighteen. They hadn't budgeted for it but did anyway they did restructure anyway. They got further deeper into the whole. Anyway i think got another tuna three and a half million whatever it was friday and then on top of that the they redid his deal before two thousand nineteen i think ever since that two thousand eighteen season from an economic standpoint there was stress the was laid out to me. Was that. just the closeness And i'm not necessarily including arthur blank but but maybe to some degree. Yes but certainly the closeness with me on the franchise from both ends just wasn't at the same level how much of this was rigid residual from not win a super bowl how much of this was residual of maybe julio wanting some statistical achievements that he was unable to get And you know the slide of the offense and obviously Know avas hill her to the situation to right if if they're not making thirty in the last three years maybe none of this happens to some degree and again quinn. Doesn't get five. Maybe they just kinda go on. And on so i think that is really start at. Where julio where he reached the point of screwed. I'm out of here is that i can answer. I do know this and i wrote. This column is agent. Jimmy sexton is also arthur smith sage. Okay right asli. Only found out very recently. Because i never really paid attention. Arthur smith stage was arthur's may that multiple offers to coach elsewhere. And he was not any jimmy. Sexton would not be doing his job if he didn't tell. Arthur smith look the you want that job just so you know before you go. Who will be wants out. So he knew. I'm sure on some level -tary fought no knew that he wasn't happy Even all that said if he was happy part of me thinks that they might have moved off. Try to move on from any way. They knew they have the gap situation than they were gonna have to get out from under this at some point they had. I realized this is a long answer but just kind of all ties. Together absolutely yeah. They decided they had to restructure matt. matt ryan something. They didn't wanna do They'd already done that. They weren't going to do that. With julio at the absolutely nothing to do with julio and in so basically that's that's where we are The lactic cap hit next year but to get out of the salary this year and they get sick around pitch so yeah they were never going. I picked. i don't know how somebody reported it. I thought it was bs the second i heard it night. Nobody told me that nobody else reported it. And i'll say this if somebody told somebody that they talked about first round pick. This is about the only scenario where i could see it happen. Team called called What we can discuss a first round kick. But you're picking up twelve hulu galil fifteen dollars right and that scenario. Maybe the cocoons go. Okay now. that's not gonna work because they wanted the money off the books this year And they needed. They needed to get off the books issues. So i think that's really. The out of the picture was relisted. And how much do you think that the firing of dan quinn may have been the straw camel's back because we know dan. Quinn had this reputation for being very Beloved within the organization the players love him There was some reporting this morning indicated. That was one of the final straw. Julio even though the team honestly have been losing under dan quinn as head coach so he was frustrated with winning. You would think those two things would wouldn't be held At at the same time. But you think that Dan quinn getting the axe in the way that he did. Maybe with a perth situational bit with with. Julio i dunno i dan. Quinn was very young. Players is a good guy. I love him to death out standpoint. He was a little bit of enable or he did allow julio to manage himself as they put it Allowed himself to taking himself out of players when he wanted to allow himself to to practice. I mean julio knows his own body not spine. I got it but i did mess with the team. The the offense is rhythm to some degree. I'm they'll never stayed out But i just think logically. They know the play. I get it but you still practice for a reason. I'm actually it was upset at. I don't know if he was upset. So much dance firing as much as he was how all the players basically just tainted at some point you know and then suddenly you know who gave a speech or wherever said something. Suddenly they took off and it's like dance job was say the following you tank did again. I think in that sense had been khalil was disgusted. You know With a lot of stuff going on around him specifically i mean. You can't look at something realistic and see a team go. Eighteen thirty you know over three years at basically have continuous continuous backslide from super bowl..

"Bad at knowing what. I don't know that i know instincts. What's the instinct songs. Well i guess it's going to be may. Yeah yeah hold on. I'm maybe i'll google in sank. I can't remember whether they're backstreet boys. So i think i remember the backstreet. Boys one's a little better. And i think the reason is my sister's did listen to the backstreet boys. I don't remember them listening to sink. Bye bye bye. Oh i thought that was backstreet. Boys so i now never mind. I already contradicted. What i've was okay. I remember that the answer is i guess. Backstreet boys and definitely my sisters. I think were into that catching because then they had nice harmonies. You know it was like all right. It's hard going but Yeah i was never. I don't think i was the target audience for that. Yeah probably not now all right in a slightly more serious question. Wait but who was. Oh sorry yeah who are you into. Yeah i was more into nickelback. Oh my god lindsay left to show everybody. I knew it. I ask you yeah. Oh that was the bombshell your way into. Yeah that's good. Because i was worried that it was going to be like a you know race and i q claim that you know. You're gonna sam harris us but no you did something even worse. Which is you said. You like nickelback which i was eight. So that's what really. How old am i. How old are we. And i always forget. Here's the thing about nickelback nickelback fucking sex. And i hate nickelback. And they're the least sincere. Now yeah but no no hold on. I'm making a point. Then there was. There's like a counter. Backlash a little bit you know. There's like the debunk. To the debunk of nickelback. The people tried to pull like nickelback. Not actually that bad you just hate them because the whole world started hating them and it became a mean and i would like to that debunked by saying no. I've always hated them even in the nineties before it was a mean honest to god. I mean i don't think it's that far fetched to believe that i thomas smith didn't like a thing that people liked i like. I have credibility on that front and nickelback is the most insincere garbage generic rock the production. Everything about it is insincere. It's entirely like they took nirvana which you know. Say what you go. A lot of people don't like nineties grunge. that's fine get. You had to be there a little bit but the very least kirk obain sincere like there's certain musicians where you like even if you don't appreciate your well that you know that person is sincere artist like they are doing. They're doing what they wanna do in a way. That's not like i'm trying to sell you. Only sell bunch albums and nickelback is like taking all of that nineties grunge and putting an into like a ibm watson machine and being like all right. Let's come up with a perfect salesman version of that. I can't even. I don't expressing it well but even in the music and the production. It sounds like that like his voice. This photograph legs all this consistent consistent tone and i hate it. I went to a nickelback concert. I shouldn't be admitting this. This is a terrible rahman picture. Also kind of applies to that guy doesn't it didn't it. They have some good top ramen hair. Yeah i think he did. Yeah anyway you should have known. Here's the i'll make a controversial claim and you know what we're both your beat being hated or you're here being hated so far i'll join you. I think the first creed album is pretty good there. I said it creed is better. The nickelback by million and some of their songs were actually kinda get unlike nickelback. Who has zero good songs. Yeah yeah no. I don't dispute any of this i. I have a lot of sell patriot over the door. People will hate me just as much for saying creed had some okay song. Okay all right thank you. Yeah i appreciate the take some of the incoming fire with you all right now that we've lost all our listeners. General section of problem. Child this one. I'm i'm i'm interested in this. This could be a real podcasts battle. Here you in problem child says last month. Pc myers was streaming. Kevin logan christy winters kristi richards longtime friend of the show could peeps over there could people and he expressed a dislike for evolutionary psychology. I was in the chats. So i asked him to clarify if rejected the entire field. He said he did because he believes. It's based on false premise. The idea that all human behaviors ultimately the result of evolutionary selective pressures. He said that it's possible for traits. That aren't helpful or even slightly deleterious to hang around get spread so long as they don't seriously hinder survival. He was color blindness as an example of a trade. That's not helpful but also not dangerous enough to be selected out christie chimed in to say she's suspicious of psych because it's claims are usually non falsifiable and pc agreed with her howard lindsay respond to those criticisms of her field. Wow shot at your entire thing. Yeah yeah no this. I i'm aware of pc's What's the word. He's he said that. He despises evolutionary psychology in other forums. So yeah i i know. He doesn't like evolution or psychology. But i get the sense from. I think the first time that i dug into his criticisms were was when we did our first report together. Okay and you know. I haven't really kept up with him. But i i went and looked to see if you know. His criticisms have changed at all. They don't seem to have changed. Seems to be saying the same thing that used to. And i get the sense that ps impression of field isn't based on actually reading much research in evolutionary psych. It seems to be based mostly on the public conversation about this area which unfortunately as we've discussed at length elsewhere seems to be dominated by wing astles who have an agenda to biology is. And you know. I don't i don't blame be pc for this right. I think that must exposure to discipline other than our own does happen in the public sphere. Its its from hearing. What's going on the public sphere. So i get that. I will say though that i am mildly annoyed that he's chosen to criticize it as loudly as he hasn't as persistently as he has without doing more reading right but yeah whatever so the idea that. The entire field is based on the premise. That all behavior is the result of evolutionary selective. Pressures is just not true so in like the first week of my undergraduate course on evolutionary psych. We talk about genetic drift which is exactly what peasy is describing their when he says that like it's possible for traits that aren't helpful Or even slightly deleterious to persist rate and not because they're being selected for not because they function but just because they don't do enough harm to be selected out. Ray we talk about that. It's not an assumption that everything is the result of an adaptation. So we talk about that talk about byproducts which are features. They're sort of carried along with adaptations. But they don't serve a purpose. We're actually going to talk about one of those about one of those in a minute and we talk about homework. So the design right. Which you you have to establish in order to claim that something's not up so Yeah i i hope that. He's being somewhat hyperbolic when he says that evolutionary like ascribes everything to selection. But i don't know it's hard to tell if he's being hyperbolic or whether he really thinks that yeah i. I think it's a little i love p and you know. He has very strong opinions. As do i of course but i do feel like on this one..

"To my looks blue. It's the best I can do for display here in the studio is way back there against the window. Joe's got a fun hat. We're definitely in the Taco Bell spirit of things. The draft spirit round one to get going in three hours and the bills pick if they stay at 30 might be more than three hours after that. Was pretty late. We're not used to this. Really. It's the latest they've ever picked. 30 in the first round. The draft is in, Cleveland said, because there were fewer teams in the league when they were going to the Super Bowl four times in a row. Right? That's right. They would've drafted 27th. Eric would maybe could have been the answer to that trivia question to what he had been the latest first round pick they've had before because I was 28. Previous white would have been 27. I can hunt for that field. Thomas Smith was 28. Like my cargo might have been 30 sometime a cargo McCargo. Raft memories 26 Okay? Yeah. 20 eight's the highest couple guys before tonight if they stay at 30 The draft is in Cleveland. Have you turned on any coverage yet of Cleveland? I'm not. No, I'm you know, I've got a device being used so that everybody can see my Beautiful face here, along with you guys and s O. I'm not streaming anything on my iPad. I don't have a regular TV hook up up here in the attic, Um, using the iPad keep track of Twitter and whatever else is going on, so no, I have turned on and either coverage yet. What's something? Anything, Stand out? Yes, They've got a big amphitheater outside that place and you're the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. 49 degrees. Rain winds between 20 and 30 MPH. For that, for that scene would be freaking the bleep out if we were hosting the draft in Buffalo, and we got that that whether it's pretty much the same today, right? Right. Like if we had that, like it's not a Chamber of commerce kind of day. Come on 75 80 a couple weeks ago, 75 on Sunday in Cleveland, but you know so much lot of good that does them. So can we talk about so the et? An idea. And when we were on before the last break Joe said. I work eggs. I've said I just don't understand the logic of drafting him and then, like really, not really using him. That's what you're you want. You want this piece to add to this record breaking offense. Well, I owe something to that. I think I think any team would sort of have that instinct. Would they all act on them in the same way? Of course not. But that would sort of. It's sort of a logical instinct when we drafted this guy what I'm gonna do. Why did we draft him if we're not gonna use him? So then, Joe said. He kind of feels that that would happen. If I'm not putting words in your mouth here on Lee if the Bills were to trade up for him, and that would be the sign that, okay. This is like they're running back now. Yeah, beam or you'd be more worried about it. Then you would be if they picked him in 30. Yeah, and and I said, I don't know if I agree with that, but I might the earlier. It's sort of your thinking to with respect to picking a running back at all in the first round. It's like, well, it's late enough. Which also of course means my team is good enough that I can afford it. If it's earlier. It's a different equation. Yeah, I don't I don't know. Um, I mean, I think Logically, that makes some sense. You you're paying more for this. This item this player Um so Therefore, your compulsion to make sure you get value out of it might be stronger, but I think you have to have that compulsion in the first place. And I'm I am And I might be making a mistake. I mean, I'm giving the bills the benefit of the doubt that their eyes are in their minds are wide open to exactly what their meal ticket is like. What? What made them home this year unless they They subscribe to some notion of it being a fluke that they threw the ball as often as they did and as effectively as they did, and they scored a record number of points for them and 1 13 games. I got all the way the C championship game playing that way, you know, maybe the playoffs, give them some pause because they didn't exactly home on offense in any of the three playoff games. I mean, they had their moments, but Really The biggest play in the playoffs was 101 Yard interception return by tearing Johnson. It wasn't some offensive fireworks by Josh Eleanor. Step on digs they had, You know, they made some plays, but really That that was the the play that people are gonna remember from the three playoff games, I think is tearing Johnson's interception returning his Baltimore so but all that said. I would be surprised if if they looked at privacy Tien and when, Yeah, we need him because we want to run the balm or like I think you want to be more effective when you run it. And have more of a threat when you run it, um, to turn your back on after one year of success with Josh L'm throwing it is frequently as they did in the name of balance or something. I just think would be silly. I want to give them credit for, you know, just general intelligence as well as obviously football intelligence tow know where the leak is at. I mean, we've been over backwards, crediting them for recognizing it. And having Brian Day ball designed this offense. I think if they're going to draft travesty, 10 it's because they sat down with Brian Table and said, How can you use him? What can it do for us when we give him the ball? What can it do to the defense when we don't give him the ball, But he's there is a threat to be given the ball, just like, you know. Draw that up. Prepare a prepare a presentation for us. You know, and again, this is assuming Gabe all loves the idea. He means like I don't need a fast running back. But if he if he if he thinks the idea is worth investing time in To me. That's how you approach it. It doesn't change who you are from. Last year, it augments what you conduce you and makes defense's react to your running game in a different way. That should ultimately benefit your passing game like that's what I think of that. Don't think that that's hard to hard to see. I don't think it's that complicated. Um, you know it does purchase a certain amount of faith in people who You know, before Josh Alan blasted off, talked about hand size and in the weather a lot, So you know, there's there's a lot to sort of shift through and set aside..

"How we manage prosperity for writing checks. We cannot cash as a civilization executed in this episode of the economics. Podcast we're asking. How can we change the rules of our economy to stop environmental breakdown. I'm sure thomas smith recording this podcast from the house. Stay with us this week. I am really pleased to be joined on the line by laurie label in london. Did i say that right. you did. Fantastic co author of the new book planet on phya and trustee. Hi laurie as be thanks. So much for taking the time. So let's start off with the big central argument of your book so you write that. The climate crisis and ecological breakdown are primarily political crises. Which is kind of novel angle and a really interesting one. So what do you mean by that. What we trying to do is to draw out some of the big things that we've seen that missing from the mainstream framing off the environmental crisis. The first thing to say is the austin or at least until recently it has an included fool. Pitch of what is going on with environment for a number of years. We've had this big mainstream focus on climate change and understanding how serious that and not just as changes but as a full blown crisis has increased enormously in the last couple of years right but then we have got some progress being made in relation to appreciation of this diversity loss. Another one of the big things. That's going on the unity introduction. But we're not yet seeing. This is an overrule problem of the stabilization of the overall picture of nature across the world. This kind of earth system is it. What the provides us with the conditions in which life in our societies can flourish. So one of the main political problems. Here is that on macy. Politics has been unable to really ross. The full scale of the problem that we face this sees a critical destabilization. All the life support systems that provide us with the foundation upon which anything including in particular economic activity. Can even that makes sense. Let's go a bit deeper on some of the central arguments to the book. Let's start off if you could tell us a bit more about what kind of capitalism and imperialism as you write about half to do directly with the climate crisis where the links so yeah this is for us to the second big thing that's missing from critical story about larry all the moment right so you get all of these people out in the media hula time. Who will lamenting that. We've not really made progress. So far you've got bill gates writing in his blog and in his recent book the people just need to be educated. They have to have a better understanding Expired or you've got president emmanuel macron at a summit saying we need more bravery and And you've got others. I've read in petrol psychologists the other day saying there's something about human beings that makes them selfish and it's really seductive to hear this stuff and thank god that makes perfect sense. Maybe these aw individually altogether the reasons why we're not we're not making progress and we know asti grasping this problem and dealing with the big problem. There is that it's just missing a huge palm of what has led us to this. Point fundamentally they is about power. It's about the tower of sutton structures dynamics. It exists across the wealth than a cut because of the ways all economies of built. And this is why things like imperialism come from if you look back at the history of the lost four hundred five hundred years which has a history of slavery. It's the history of the emergence of fool more empires like the british empire and then those disappearing but the continuation of very unequal gobert. Economy dot story that is inseparable from the story. The growing story of environmental crisis is now reaching this astonishing cacophony..

"Like religious fanaticism. It's no no no no but but the the point i'm getting at is in the doctor even says that you know because you know she came so close to this one plot to kill her. It's you know she she you look for plots in everything in it and it did. It did affect her a lot of ways. History is a little fuzzy on what actually happened. I'm saying here in the story. They start to see. They started to see a suggestion of that. It's other religious fanaticism per se. It is the someone tried to kill me therefore everyone is trying to kill me right. Yeah so you know. She thinks people are wanting to kill her because of her religious beliefs so chicken the it is a cycle so it all just kind of a and like i said the the reign of queen mary. There's a reason she's called bloody mary. It wasn't a good time in england. And i would. I mean it's time for protestants. And i would honestly say i mean yeah. The protestants had to flee to other countries. Yeah they had to just leave. But i'm like i'm looking at it and i'm like if i if i'm catholic at this time and and my and i don't know maybe maybe at the time because even the protestants were like well. Yeah burn heretics since but other heretics than like. Oh gosh the more things change the more they stay the same. It's just not much religion it's as but oh boy don't need to get into that But so yeah so it's just it's like i don't know if i'm catholic and i see someone using my belief or my you're in the name of my beliefs. Doing these terrible things to people understand. Like i am not with them. Yeah i don't know it's it's a. It's a sticky subject. And it's one that you know there have been volumes written on this time period and what happened in wise. You want to go digging into that. feel free. it's very sticky. It can be a very sticky subject. But i think they do a very good job about not getting into the weeds of it. It just don't let like this is this is our interpretation of what happened Kind of of you know what mary was thinking at the time and go ahead and extrapolate that out however you want on europe yes oh they don't they don't come out and say this is what they just put. Little hints of this is what could have happened so and like i said if you want to go down that path and do your own research and all your own reading like i said there tons of books out there. I've done some of that research and it is fascinating in. It's sad and i really feel sorry for everyone involved. Mary elizabeth all of henry's wives all of it but i just is just such a mess. It's also it's a soap opera and soap operas popular for a reason A so so you know. They realize that the mary realizes her lady-in-waiting waiting is trying to kill her and this is someone she trusted but she also because Sarah is pregnant and mary thinks she's pregnant. She's like you know. I i cannot. I can't in good faith you know execute you because i would also kill your child so she goes. She sent sarah to into exile to go serve elizabeth. Who's who's also enter under house arrest. Thomas smith however he is another story and mary gives him the opportunity to recant and to be become catholic and he refuses. Because he's just not. I mean that's is his beliefs he's not going to let them go just because his life is Is is threatened and he is executed and for poor evil in his like these are my ancestors which is like sometimes sometimes you do some family history and you find out some things that you might not have wanted to know And then they go save save crow and leave because because evil 'cause they're they're locked up an evil and doesn't want them to die because she den mother yes who the fires upon pay. They do the she come with me. You want to live. Get them to switzerland. I think germany germany or was like bavaria. I think i can't remember. They said it and it was one of those one of those names. That is now germany or you know that that part area if Because they were like but that's foreign they're like well. There's a lot of processed protestants of relocated soon. You won't be it won't be so bad and you go back in a few years. When mary is dead in her is taken over. Yeah and they basically tellers everything. That's going to happen because the doctor's like well they're on the hardest is so what can you might as well And so yes sumerian conspiracy and it's it's brilliant. It's just so much fun. And it's it's it's if you love purist oracles of dr do because period stoorikhel stories this one definitely scratches that each There's know intrigue and suspense. And all these things. There's there's no monsters there's no The only alien is the doctor. And i mean he he has his tartus and eveland has the the gizmo that keeps her from disappearing. And that's about it and it's in it. It is a historian. It's it's like having barbara beck in the tartus. Only she's a little older and A little more. Just it's it's so good so good. Yeah and having said that. I'm like i really. That's why liked barbara so much. And that's why she's a great. She's a great companion. Well obviously we'll see and talk them. Well see will hear her again. We discussed other six and evelyn stories like Heard that one. You know why. I'm laughing if you'll get it listens any if i am having a bad mental health day doctor who and the pirates is one that i just happen and not because of the humor in the antics although that that is a big thing but also kind of the or heartfelt parts of it too and that one's a really well-balanced one and it's just fun but yeah you know even gets gets to gets the range of you know humor and heart and getting to be competent and i. I love the bit where you know. They're trying they're running away from the tower. They're running somewhere and even goes. I can't run with my knees in the doctor's like usually.

"Eating urban data this with this. Oh she's taking the piss within minutes yes and then it gets very. It's very dark suit. Doctors like to be executed by queen. Mary yeah there's another clinton here anyway but So so then. The next episode of the the reverend reverend thomas. he a- he. He sends messengers to claim that the you know the because they're they're conspiracy is is being a found out and And they say oh you know the doctor was in on it too so they send the doctor and evil into the tower the tower of london. Good old town get a ghetto tower. Love that there is a big finish. You could hear the crows in the background. Those girls don't need batteries. Not of those actual crows Lot the doctors first trip to the tower and won't be the last no no not at. It's so funny. Evil in. I could pick the lock. No you can't because there's a bar on the other side. I can't use hairpins. What about a secret passageway. You're the historian with with you ever known someone escaping using it as so is just search is the whole time and it's like like like you feel like there should be something behind banter like plot point but there's not it's just they're bantering back and forth and there. It's your two people becoming friends. Yes and their momentary intelligence and doesn't put up with the doctors crap because she's seen it from all those college kids and university students And she just is like yeah. We're gonna figure this out. We're going to get out and we have to warn them because they realized that that the french the frenchman might be the one who's going to poison the queen and then they're probably going to poison the sacraments Because she's going to mass so you know when when he's with he's going to slip something into the into the bread and the wine and that'll be the end of it later they come to realize that was probably a dumb idea because the french the french ambassador he too is catholic and what a catholic actually taint the holy sacrament. No they have to. They have the the method right person doing it wrong. Yes yes they. They escape through through the thames. Any like do you know. What do you know how how nasty this river is. The now am. I gonna probably worse than than it. I don't know. I have no idea. I've just i know. Filtration existed so has a reputation of being gross. so y- most major rivers like that goes through. Large cities usually aren't the cleanest. Yeah White over down the road so ll even jumped off the transport down the river thames and she just gets a little squishy in the mud and the doctor's like that's not how you dismount. You do it like this. Knee ends up like waist height in the on earth. Okay say after for for this for this story taking place during bloody marys rain. It's actually pretty funny. So it's got definitely got that going for So they escape and they get to to the church where there were there where the queen is at mass. And and they find. I like sarah the lead the lady in waiting and the reverend thomas are there and then like oh wait a minute and then they start putting two and two together and it was like it was It was a. Sarah was going to be the one to poison it and had been given a- potion and this one i like i heard her explanation. I'm like wow. You are not the most intelligent person on the planet here Like so so. The reverend thomas given her this potion and it was going to save. Everyone's life and like what did you think was going to happen lady. It was supposed to move in a supposed to give her dreams that would expand her mind her see the error of her ways. I think i think we're a little a little early for lsd. They're a little bit right little bit. Yeah so it turns out that An increase 'cause there was a moment earlier with sarah like talking about About like you know how you know if you committed to to your to your husband. And even though the that mary had made a lot of these marriages In invalid because they especially like the clergy because under catholicism the clergy. Do not marry. There's supposed to be celibate So it's it's it's illegal so all these people who had to these clergyman who married under protestantism their marriages were were null and void and made their children illegitimate and an all these things which you know again. This is why this is such a big problem What's that horse so many times to between ring right it's like and that and that's why this time period is so messed up also it's fascinating because they kept changing it on what particular monarch believed. It's like how does a normal person just keep up with this stuff you can't You hit it's ticked off as bugs in daffy with the duck season rabbit season proudest in season catholic season. Like this. and it's like okay. Am i married this week. Like come on the trees Sarah is married to the reverend thomas smith. So so i'd say thomas smith and And the other marriage was was void considered void and but they still you know she still loved him. They loved each other. You know they still have you know they're still human. They still have human relationships who'd have found it editor like when they got married at the time it was perfectly legal and therefore that marriage was consummated legally. Yes they still like met with each other under the radar tried to and she was. She was pregnant. she's going to have a baby Because because the whole story comes out at mary's like oh it's a sin to be married to to a man of the cloth. And i'm just like oh my gosh okay. Mary i mean at this point in the story and i don't know if this is historically accurate At this but at this point of the story. Mary's mental function just kind of starts to slip a little bit or i don't know if it's your mental function or just her something just like okay. Now you're now you're going off at that's airy would say without more information. It's kind of hard to be like. Yeah i mean history is little.

You made a bozo the bozo the clown reference to produce repeat. Yeah, but what? Pete? I was telling him when I first came up from Mississippi. I was on my way to Detroit. But I stopped over in Chicago after you know, for high school, and I was going to go to Crane Tech high school there, and I just sit and watch bozo the clown every day, Mr Met.

Uh, Spencer, I I'm in love with your story of your entire journey through your life. I've kind of teased it a couple times, but I just wanna make sure I get these facts right? You were born in the South. And at the age of four years old with your mother, you began picking cotton for how much a day. Well, I wasn't making but the grown ups so making $2 a day I When I started thinking I was just getting what my mother would keep me like a quarter or whatever, but we take from sunup to sundown. And if you don't If you didn't do that, then you would lose your state of where you will be living how you would eat. So it was to survive because we was indentured slavery had taken place. He couldn't leave the farm You couldn't do in a girl's things. Um Unless you finish picking that cotton and plant in the garden shop in the carton and just actually relegated to the farm, So it was our lifestyle at that time. What did you get out? Not that long ago, Right? 19? What happened? Look before 65. What happened was The promised saw me as this project and the high school basketball coach shall be as a project for basketball. But the farmer was looking at me as if I would be this kid that could Cause I worked real hard that I would be the good guy to stay on the farm, but we have to get away. The farmers said that we would have to get away to keep him on the farm and in the past what they would do. They will put you in jail for a while. And then you come out of jail and you relegated to the farm because she couldn't go back to school or anything, and school was basically shut down for farming anyway. And so what happened? They put me in jail. They put me in jail and And my mother said I can't. I can't go with that. I can't stand this anymore. And so you're gonna have to go up north to stay with your brothers and sisters in Chicago. So that's how I ended up in Chicago with those guys, but they would just drink it and, you know it's having a good time and school. You know, we didn't trying to get registered at Crane tax and it was It was just chaos, and my brother came over from Detroit, and he picked me up and brought me over to Detroit. And that's how I got started over there. But in the cotton fields, it was hard, hard work down the civil city, Mississippi, because You know, I wanted to work. I wanted to be the best field hand. I wanted to be the best cotton picker that state and that's that common had ever experienced because I had big or hands as kids. And that's what you know. People have told me. You know, the toast, pecans, you you're going to be the best cotton picker River ever had him. Man. We got it. We got a thoroughbred here now. I was like a party and I was like, Yeah, I worked in 12. I make straight hours a day trying to get to be that death. Incredible from two rolls. Yeah, It's just incredible that this story Good. Well, I was picking from two rolls of cotton. You know, one role on one side one roll on the other. So I was picking from both sides. I got hand and our coordination. I was jacking the fact that weighed £100. I got Bill. I was built like a like a man and as a boy. And so what God had in mind for me. It wasn't my idea, but you know, it was God's idea that you know you're gonna be trained to be this great basketball player. But I didn't know until you know later on in life until I got there the Olympics and then I was like, Oh, so that's what the card until that wasn't the plan. Okay, So let's get through this because I wouldn't want to set up the scene. So you go to Detroit. You start playing basketball in high school eventually in college, and then I want to get to the Supreme Court ruling. So okay, So you get out of high school and you, you start playing semipro. How does that work that you end up being the poster boy poster man? For the Supreme Court ruling.
