Fires Force the U.S. Forest Service to Close

"For the first time in forty five years the us forest service has closed the boundary waters canoe area is wilderness in northern minnesota includes one million acres of lakes and rivers and forests many of which are now on fire. Minnesota public radio's dan crocker. Reports many of the fires here are burning within the boundary waters. But the largest is just south. It's the greenwood fire and it scorched more than thirty square miles of forest and it's forced the evacuation of nearly three hundred households. I met one of those evacuees. Doug landy at a recent public information meeting. He lives in the woods near the tiny town of isabella. That's a summer for mao for watching the forest to get compromised. He says the forest is tinder-dry from extreme drought and unusually hot weather earlier this week. Gusty winds sent the fire roaring through a chain of lakes surrounded by dozens of homes and cabins mike birdman and his wife got a call from the county sheriff telling him their cabin is still standing. But he's afraid at the forest surrounding it will look like a moonscape we're approaching seventy and it's not going to grow back in our lifetime and yeah there's just so much uncertainty it just like a slow motion disaster happening just to the north in the boundary waters wilderness rangers have paddled into warren campers that they have to leave. The original closure order was set to expire today but it since been extended at least another week. That's a big blow for the many businesses that count on these few months to outfit those campers. We have people from all fifty states who come here every summer to experience the boundary waters jason's aboard ski runs the outfitting company in the small town of ely which bills itself as the canoe capital of the world in august. It's usually packed with visitors. Canoe strapped to the tops of their cars. But not now and you know to have sort of this immediate closure and have to tell somebody who's traveled from texas or california and are like standing in front of us ready to go out for a week in the woods that actually everything's changed and your boundary waters vacation is off is really difficult. The forest service is encouraging tourists to canoe and camp in areas outside the wilderness. Ends aboard. Ski is trying to stay positive. But says there's nothing comparable the paddling into the amazing boundary waters itself

Not going to go well, however, they were smart enough to not do the rings on the pillow thing. Yeah, those would have gotten lost there in a box with a lid like a wooden box. So while we're practicing, it's a farm so that Amanda's family had one of those razors. Those laws lay TV's, Hmm. They're very small, A T V's and they were letting Mohammed drive it around. Because also not a good idea. Yeah. And at some point, Festus, says, Mohammed. Here's what I want you to do. When your ring bear and you walk up and it's your turn to bring us the ring. She handles the rings. And then I want you to throw the box down and I want you to run over and hop in the razor and drive away And I said, really, he said, You really want him to do that?

Thank you so much for taking time out of your day to have a conversation with us looking forward to it. So let's just start off and share with us a little bit about your background. I mean you seem to be involved in so many things. You can definitely tell. You're an advocate for a lot of different groups of people and and you're engaged in political things. The arts Work so share with us a little bit about who you are and what you do. Well i'll start at the beginning. I was I grew up in northwestern iowa outside of a tiny town called pomeroy which is about six hundred fifty people Youngest of four grip on the farm right across the road from my dad's parents my grandparents. So i saw them every day growing up which i am very grateful order but in small town iowa you have to do everything be involved in everything so i was in all four sports played. The charm sang in the choir. Did all of the things was in. Nhs or h ffa. So i truly am grateful for that Well rounded nece that. Allow me to really try so many things. And i think that's still kinda tested to my career in my life. I like to be involved. In a variety of even today North west island's pretty conservative and so growing up as a little boy was very challenging to to recognize what i was going through to see others. Who were like me and should not be alone and so i went to iowa. Central community. college burst in fort. Dodge years and then moved to into moines in two thousand six to perform at adventure land. So you're at adventure land in the summer of two thousand six and if you know eventually know there's a stage that comes up from out of the ground i performed Had eight shows everyday. They were short set. So it wasn't too long but i we a country show at patriotic show in greece. So that was a ton of fun. And i think really helped me develop competence in front of people because you have to have confidence when performing And then i started going to school full time while working fulltime in. I did that for ten years. Finish undergrad did a masters in health and then completed the doctor of education and leadership from creighton. But my career really started in nonprofit type. Still were still working nonprofits but it started working with individuals with intellectual disabilities and technically and still employed doing that type of work. That i transitioned to more part-time respite. But i have a client that i worked with since two thousand six which is just wild to think about the had that relationship with him for so long

A Look Back: Four years since one of West Virginia’s deadliest floods

"Pastor aaron trig has a lot of good things to say about reno west virginia where he used to live people were just happy and joyous and had a lot of expectation for the future. Renal is small about fifteen hundred people. Live there. It's got a school and grocery store and a couple of stoplights pastor. Aaron lived close to main street. I live right down the street from the baseball field in a one story house that backed up to a creek and before the flood happened. You can hear the baseball field just going crazy and the football field is especially football time. It was just wild. And i will take my dog and walked down there and watch the kids play and watch the cheerleaders and the flood is like the dividing line in right now how things were before june twenty sixteen and how they were after because everything changed. There was a really big rainstorm. Really heavy. a lot of water fell in just a few hours. And just so you can imagine this part of the country is the appalachian mountains. There's a lot of fog. Big gorges rivers and a lot of towns are built on the low ground in the valleys on the rivers. That's how is the creek runs through the middle of town. Pastor aaron was at home when the creek started rising and you can hear the water up in the mountains crash trees and the water started just gushing. And next thing you know. Is that our waste. It was evening very restless night. Triggs house was already underwater so he took shelter on the second floor of his neighbor's house. You can hear people screaming and hollering for help especially a lot of elderly people that we try to get some of them out. But we couldn't and you can hear them hollering for help and people screaming and hollering and the water gushing. It was a real wrestling snyder. Roll just no piece of law. I did a lot of praying that night. Rescuers got to trig boat in the morning in all at least twenty. Three people in west virginia died in the floods and since then a lot of people have left businesses closed. The town is struggling. And i think it's easy to look at a place like right now and think it's an outlier. A tiny town wiped out by an act of god. But that is not. What i see. Reno is not an outlier. It's a bellwether because one of the big problems in reno after the flood was that people didn't have the money to rebuild their homes and that is something that's getting more and more widespread as climate driven flooding gets

Oh my goodness well i do. Think it's kind of corny in a way to talk about or share. But i think in reflecting in writing this book the reason why i chose to share it was because i think that every everybody at some point in your life whether it's when you're little kid or continued experience is the same thing where you feel really good and really connected so you know for me. I was lucky enough to live in nature. And i just remember clearly sitting outside and sitting on the ground nothing spectacular feeling like i had a lot of energy inside of me a lot of passion a lot of excitement a lot of desire to learn more integral to become or my potential what i could do and i just remember in that moment feeling really supported by the universe in this way You know almost assigned are going with that feeling. You're going with that desire. You do have this energy inside the more you cultivate it the more you you know. Seek out teachers and seek out and learn. You really can participate in a very Full way and help people feel better. So i just i remember that really clearly and Yeah i of keep coming back to that my life and you grew up on a farm in illinois correct. Yeah super tiny town and as we saved the middle of nowhere but I couldn't wait to get out now. I appreciate it just like you know such a common experience that but yeah my parents built this kind of passive solar home and we literally simply i call the straight edge hippies. They didn't do all the fun. Things that i read about. You know in the seventies generation. You know they didn't drink. They didn't do any drugs. You know we were. You know kind of simple in that way but you know i appreciate it now especially that i've gotten more interested in in health and wellbeing and it didn't get messed up early on at least in that way. Did you rebel as a kid to that lifestyle. Oh yeah definitely. I think you know being in the middle of nowhere again and you know either. You are interested in sports or academics. Or you got into trouble and i always loved people. I always thought you know different kinds of people interesting. So i kind of hung out with all the different groups of kids so you know it's interesting because my my mother was always saying. Oh you should hang out with this group of people more of that kind of looked more clean cut on the outside but they were the ones doing all of the kind of and the ones that i was getting a little bit warm look a little rough around the edges on the outside and we're doing some of the bad stuff but not not i guess in my mind the really dangerous things so but i support

Poland activists vow largest protest yet over abortion ban

"Now, after the week off nationwide protests on the issue Poland's president under studio has given his view on abortion. Last week, the country's conservative government successfully adopted a near total ban on abortion. But yesterday in a radio interview, the president said women should have the right to have an abortion when the fetus they're carrying. Has lethal congenital defects. But it's quite a departure from the government's stance, which triggered demonstrations that have seen people take to the streets to support the call off women's rights activists. Well another major protesters actually planned for later today in the capital Warsaw. Joining us for mass city is a Polish journalists. Natalia Jessica Mourning, too, you Natalia first, Can you tell us about This latest protest what actually is being planned? Good morning. So, yes, the number of protests over the last two days has been growing successfully at one of the watched of media has actually estimated that on Wednesday more than 430,000 people Participated in 410 different protests organized all across the country. Polls took to the streets even in tiny towns, including my own hometown. When I've never seen protests before, and today, people from all over the country are expected to arrive in Warsaw. To form and large, that would be even the larger than the black protests from 2016. And when the president spoke on this radio show, giving his views was that a surprise It is absolutely because so far the message is coming from the government were absolutely of a different nature. We had the deputy prime minister of questions he who was also the leader of the Law and Justice Party, and he called on Christian Catholics to form self defense units to protect the churches and the traditional values, and there was immediately a reaction to this. Isil groups off such men guarding the churches in where so and then being also admission, Aly protected by the police officers, But you know, at this point, the protesters resigned from any attends to vandalize the walls. All the entrances of the churches as they did on Sunday and then you know, On the other hand, you have the opposition. Calling on the government not to publish the ruling and absolutely nothing till the polenta is over. What does it mean now, though, I mean, where does it leave it, Especially given what the president said. Do you think this is going to have a change? Because I mean, this is something that's already been adoptive into law, Isn't it all? Do you feel there'll be a change of view within the government or within the opposition, bringing some fresher to bet? This is an incredibly difficult question that everyone is asking themselves right now in Poland, because you know this ruling has been issued by the Constitutional Tribunal in the theory is biting not be appealed. So there are so many legal questions like how can you proceed right now? And to the illness, the only solution that appears To be, you know, realistic right now. It's just not publish it. Right, Natalya. Thank you very much for joining us. Natalia or Jessica in Warsaw.

National Mole Day with Andrew Geary

"Hi Paul this is Andrew in today is National Day. Now my first thought this day is in honor of Pucks Itani Phil, but then are moles and ground hogs, the same underground inhabitant. Or could it be honoring one of the greatest land air battles of all time went to bias the mole attack tiny town in Rocketeer George Michael saved the day on arrested development. Now. I know Netflix puts it Tada on everything but did they also put their stamp on National Day? I look forward to you sending me straight Paul. I Fan true according to the Internet malls in groundhogs are often lumped together in discussions regarding wildlife problems that result in turn up damaged landscaping. This is because they both utilized tunnel systems and caused damage to plants, roots, and beautiful lawns but that is where the similarity ends, but I severely digress. Today. October twenty third is national. Mall Day which has nothing to do with furry creatures. Today's all about chemistry specifically avocados number, which is the number of particles in one mole of substance the numbers approximately six point zero, two times ten to the twenty third. Get it ten, twenty, three. If you WANNA learn how to celebrate this day. Look no further than the lab out loud podcast were in one episode they discuss mold day and how they have celebrated it. You could also research Amadeo Gaudreau and put out a social media post using the National Mall. Day, Hashtag. My guest today is Andrew. Geary. Andrew is the host of the seismic sound all podcast now prepare yourself for a second seismic sound off episodes our in depth conversations in applied geophysics intimidated yet. Luckily, for you, I asked Andrew. Where someone like me who try to cheat his way through high school science classes could start. He wrote back the following and I quote our episodes tend to range from various associations, specific highlighting our annual conference to broad scientific subjects, addressing racism and geosciences. But the best place generally to start is our episodes focused on humanitarian projects we manage here is one looking at building a canal Peru that's a good start. Unquote. For Third Recommendation Andrew Sticks with science and recommends an episode from the Your Day podcast called what whales on nine eleven. While many of us reeling from the terrorist attacks in the United States something very unique was happening underwater. For today's extra all's I'll let you decide if you would prefer watching Netflix's with Andrew or May. We, have had A. Exchange about the German show dark. I loved it but punted few episodes into season three because it was just too confusing. Andrew has tried to me to keep going but remember his brain works a lot better than mine. But one thing should be said, it seems we both are big fans of the blue family. Come back on October thirtieth for maybe one of the most divisive pieces of candy ever.

"We begin in nineteen seventy-seven back in a little town called Enfield London. Okay. Okay. So we're across the pond. We are across the pond and because of that you're probably going to hear me do a lot of really terrible British accents. I love it. I'm here for that. Ye on top of that. I'm not really sure if I pronounce the name right of the town, but I think I've heard it said in field. So I mean that's how it's spelled. So yeah, I would assume as well but I don't know if it's like unveiled or like you know, that's your prestigious. Yeah, but because we're from America we're going to go with Enfield. I love it. So we're sitting in this Tiny Town. And we are going to visit our friends the Hodgson family. Okay? Okay. I've got Mom Peggy Hodgson who is in fact a single mom of four which at the time seemed like pretty weird, you know to be a single mother. Yeah. I mean, I guess divorce was still not like a big thing back then that's okay, especially in London, I guess so she was risky to the people of London. Yeah. Yeah. Okay. So it was just a weird thing to see her four children included Margaret who was twelve at the time Janet who was eleven Johnny who was ten and Billy who was seven so we got our two girls and two boys easy to keep up with exactly. They're all living their lives having a grand old time in this cute little like looks like a townhouse kind of thing. It's like wage one of those connected houses where it's like there's a few houses in one unit yeah I know exactly which yeah so this cute guy cute little garden gnome whatever they're living their lives then the evening of August 30th 1977 rolls around okay oh Peggy as wage most likely stressed out mother is it trying to get her kids to go to bed she's like guys I gotta wake up I got to go to work tomorrow y'all gotta go to school tomorrow let's get to bed so she's downstairs doing some gift bad stuff and she heard Janet the eleven-year-old saying from upstairs that her and her brothers beds were like wobbling what yeah wobbling wobbling oh baby wobble baby wobble baby wobble no dead But they don't fall down. That's a wee before you so it's a total natural night. Okay, and then Peggy, like I said super stressed at the time she was not having this and she was just like Janet stop mucking about go to bed. I'm done with you. Yeah. Okay. This seems seems pretty normal. Yeah, pretty sure well. I mean like for Peggy from her personal perspective, you know, like it's a normal night. Her kids are being like no, I don't go to bed. So we'll make up this excuse. Yeah, she's tired and she's like just do it. I'm just over y'all. Let's call it done. Like I need a glass of wine and he only because right so the next Thursday evening Peggy herself heard a crash from upstairs. So this time she actually goes to investigate and when she got to the room a chest of drawers wage, Coming towards her without anyone pushing it seemingly of its own volition. No way. Yeah. Yeah rural she said in an interview that it seemed like Tom Thumb something was trying to block off her family from the rest of the house using the chest of drawers. Oh my gosh, that's terrifying. I know. Oh my God, and I'm sure not at all what she expected. Oh gosh. No, I would burn the house down immediately. I mean, oh my gosh, you go to open a room and here comes a dresser just like back at you like this isn't Beauty and the Beast. Okay, right? No, she ain't talking to us. Probably not that friendly either probably not dead. If she was I probably would have a different reaction right? I guess jurors don't have pronouns. Wow. Wow, and Carol just broke. So after that my Janet's older sister Margaret, she goes on to say in many like interviews and articles that after that night be activity definitely started to increase she says there were strange little noises in the house. You couldn't make out what was going on and none of us got any sleep. We put on our dressing gown and slippers and we would always go next door which wasn't a direct quote but I changed a little pool. So there you go like down in plaid quote. It's an implied quote people. So anyways, they're all putting on their dressing gowns and slippers and whatnot and took over to their neighbor's house who are named Vic and Peggy which could in fact get confusing, but we're only going to talk about big so There you go. Okay, so that makes it easy. Yeah Vic Nottingham. Oh how fancy anyway, so the family goes over to their neighbors and Mistral Vic Vic nodding him. He is described as a Burly Builder and he's a big dude. He decides to go over and investigate by himself, which I don't know why anybody would do that either. I mean, I don't know how long as I get people not believing in it and not wanting to do her like not really caring to go over but like Even if there's a tiny hint that it could be real why wouldn't anyone else with me. I'm guessing he was just being neighborly to his, you know, single mom of four. Yeah and wanting to help out. I mean, I'm sure to it probably had to sound kind of ridiculous. Hm, you know, and he was probably like, well, there's gotta be a very clear explanation. Yeah. You're probably right. I just wouldn't go I would not have gone by myself. I know you wouldn't have come over like, oh my God a chance to see ghosts. I'm there. I'll grab my flashlight. Oh my gosh, so he goes over and he goes on record saying I went in there and I couldn't make out these noises. There was a knocking on the wall in the bedroom on the ceiling and I was afraid beginning to get a bit frightened. No, meaning the Pearly Builder got frightened. The Burly Builder was bewildered sounds like a kids book. It does that get dumped so then they finally decide. Hey, let's call the police and see what she going on. Maybe the police will figure something out that we haven't put together seems logical right? So the police come over and they start to have very similar experiences and they are I'm sure of what is going on. One of the officers even signed an affidavit claiming. She saw a large armchair move. Unassisted four feet across the floor. Oh my gosh. No thoughts on record. Yeah. Oh my goodness. Yeah. Yeah, so like I'm also assuming that they checked for like any kind of rigging or anything like that. I mean I would hope so being that there were police I would think they'd be pretty thorough in an investigation. Yeah just freaks me out. I'd be curious to read that affidavit. Yeah, so then I saw Shaq just a regular day in the field and then you know, we decided to leave which they did eventually the police did in fact leave cuz I know they don't deal in ghosts they deal in real people. So of course, they couldn't

Does the Community of Lily Dale Reconnect the Living and the Dead?

"In eighteen forty, eight, two young women known as the Fox sisters heard mysterious wrappings in their house in Rochester New York and claimed that they were messages from the spirit world. Enough people at the time believed the sisters that an entire new field known as spiritualism was born. Based in European, philosophic writings from previous centuries spiritualism was and is a structured belief that humans consist of a body, a soul, and spirit. When someone dies the belief goes the soul and spirit live on in a spirit realm. According to a study published in the Journal of Religion in Nineteen, thirty quote the chief duty of these spirits is to look after the welfare and progress of those on earth. Upstate New York at that time was already a hotbed of intellectual communities so hot that it was known as the burned over district for the nearly constant religious revivals took place they're. Just Smith the founder of mormonism got his start their. Literary and intellectual community of Chautauqua where feminist four mothers. Susan B. Anthony Hung Out was nearby. So in a way spiritualism that right in. In eighteen eighty, the Lily Dale spiritualist assembly, it was founded at the Eighteen Acre Casadei Lakes Free Association camp for spiritualist gatherings in nineteen O six. The whole community was renamed Lily Dale. Now, more than a century later, it sounds kind of weird and which he and campy but Lily Dale was incredibly popular in its early days. It began holding summer camps in the eighteen nineties that were well attended to put it. Mildly Susan B. Anthony was one of the many who visited to check out the mediums. A journalist working for the New York Times stayed in eighteen, ninety eight and reported that a quarter million people went to the tiny town every year. The reporter noted mediums as a class are strange beings. At the time of his visit mediums were charging one hundred dollars per session, which is about three thousand dollars today. Interestingly the price for reading is currently around eighty to one hundred dollars in today's dollars. He witnessed a few of the techniques that came to be associated with Lily Dale such as an ear trumpet that would rise from the floor and deliver a message directly into an attendees ear. Mediums Lily Dale also used a slate on which spirits could write messages. You may be surprised to learn the candles incense are forbidden at Lily. Dale. The buildings and the community are very old and very wooden, and it doesn't take a medium to know what will happen if there's an open flame. Well actually, they know very well, what will happen the Fox sisters original house was mood from Rochester to Toledo but went up in flames in nineteen, fifty five. Spiritualism declined in the twentieth century but Lily Dale remained a stronghold was summer camps continuing every year. For the past several years, attendance has also held steady at twenty, thousand, thirty thousand visitors going there in search of clarity indirection though this year visitor numbers were restricted to just eighty per day was social distancing and mask rules in place in addition to other precautions. A study published in the review of religious research in nineteen eighty found that only a small percentage of visitors. At that time, we're going to talk to a dead family member. The study's authors came to the conclusion that the kind of spiritualism practiced at Hillsdale was more like a religious sect than a cult. The difference being that sex are usually breakoffs from mainstream religions whereas cults tend to involve novel ideas. The study concluded that the mediums at Lily Dale might be doing people a service by granting them a level of peace and acceptance. The researchers wrote if spirit communication can be associated with madness, it's also possible to view the medium as a mental health resource. Whether people still visit, Lily. Vail. Today for clarity and direction or they want to make contact with the other side probably comes down to the individual. But since the nineteen seventies, the number of mediums and the population of lily male have soared. Back. Then the village was home to about twenty five to thirty mediums residents during the summer camps and a dozen or so who stayed on to keep up the town year round. Today under normal circumstances, visitors are welcome in the off season and Lily Dale has a year round population of two hundred fifty as well as the Post Office Volunteer Fire Department Library and playground there's also a coffee shop two restaurants a few gift shops some guest houses a hotel and museum. The National Spiritualist Association of Churches is located there. But members of the Lily del Assembly can lease houses in the community. But back to the mediums. Now, there are some forty registered mediums and all aspirants have to pass a test consisting of three readings before being established in the community. And they are still the main a draw. What are people are going in hopes of receiving or conveying a message to dad loved ones is totally personal and depends on their belief in the mediums abilities. Under normal circumstances, those interested don't have to pony up for a private session either there is a day use fee for anyone who wants to go and simply roam the streets and attend the public meditations and services, and you can visit inspiration stump where services have been held since eighteen, ninety eight. This year all workshops classes, and some circles were held virtually. One thing has not changed throughout Lily Tales history. The community has always emphasized sobriety humility and a decided lack of showmanship. They may appreciate a good pun but they take their work seriously. They also emphasized that the future is not written in stone everyone has free will.

Swastika, New York, Is Keeping Its Name

"There's a debate in this country over symbols and statues and place names that are tied toe white supremacy. So what to do about a small community in rural northern New York? Called swastika. This summer visitor proposed just changing the name, but local officials opposed the idea. Julia Richie from North Country Public Radio explains why Michael Al Kamo lives in New York City but loves visiting the Adirondack Mountains and upstate New York to cycle through its tiny towns and Hamlets and past historical cemeteries. He was on a trip like this winding through a remote stretch this summer when he noticed something else. Suddenly I came to a town called Watch. The Hamlets name was printed on a small brown street sign. He says he found the name jarring and disrespectful to Veterans of World War two, some of whom are buried in graves nearby, So I think it should be obvious that the town Should update its name and should pick a name that is not so offensive to so many Americans and so emblematic of intolerance, hate and tyranny. So al Comer reached out to county officials in August to see if they would consider it. He was soon directed to email the town of Black Brooke. Which has jurisdiction over swastika. The town agreed to add it to the agenda for their September meeting. And after about five minutes of discussion, the town's for counselors unanimously voted against it. So basically Was named by the founders of the area that settled there. That's black Brooke Supervisor John Douglas, who was at the meeting but didn't have a vote. None of the counsellors returned to request for comment. Douglas Saysthe Hamlets named far predates World War two and came from the Sanskrit word meaning well being the foresighted geometric character that represents the swastika has been used for thousands of years in Indian religions and seen as a symbol of good luck. Of course, That meeting was overshadowed beginning in the 19 thirties with the rise of Adolf Hitler, who co opted the swastika as a symbol for Nazism and anti Semitism. Douglas says. This is not the first time the Hamlets name has been scrutinized. There was concern that due to the Germans that everything that people may I have a different outlook on the name and some of the residents that were from that area actually fought or two and refused to change the name just because Hitler tried to tarnish the meaning of swastika. Douglas says the council didn't see a reason to change the name despite its widespread use as a symbol of hate and white supremacy today, I think that probably Maybe some viewpoint that it's associated with a butt that I believe there's others that do not associate it with. Hey, did the Hindus in the booth and All them today erase it from their religious history because of the Germans, Al Kamo. The cyclists who submitted the request was disappointed by the town's reaction. I didn't expect a quick, apparently quick, unanimous vote to reject the proposal. Social media response to the decision has been murkier, with some locals of the region bristling on Facebook at an outsider from New York City trying to meddle in rural affairs. But Malcolm Oh says he simply wants more people to see the Adirondacks for its natural beauty and deep history history, he says, at odds with the meaning of swastika today

Two New Bodies and Upgradingor Not - and more

"Now that the Sony a-7 seven s mark, three's been released I've got some thoughts about it, and if you listen to the show for a while, you know that I used to own the originally seven s a body that while pretty darn amazing was not perfect I mean we're talking five plus years ago or so my old friend Paul Giro's sonar is in somebody I've known for a long time since way back when I was in. College and he was a photo journalist in Phoenix Arizona not only gave me the push to launch this podcast. He also introduced me to the murless world without his encouragement. It might have been a few years before had serious experience with murless and if you forgotten the story or just haven't heard it, I, ordered the Sony a seven ass the a six, thousand incredible Zeiss fifty, five, millimeter, one eight, which is unbelievably sharp and Sony's Seventy Two Hundred F. Four all amount, not only that they day after they arrived I, shot the Utah State High School Football Championships with them a day. Later that was crazy I also brought my Nikon d four s with me but I don't think I even took it out once I shot the games with that tiny town little a six thousand which I still have and guess what I still got the shots I needed I have done. Significantly better with the deforest of course, but I wanted to put the Sony gear through its paces and that was definitely a good way of testing it. The A six thousand was great for action and there was light aplenty. So I S O wasn't an issue ISO also not an issue with the a seven ass where it failed of course was in shooting action though it's just not made for that. We're talking the original a seven. Ass Sony design their various lines of murless bodies to be purpose built. You know the a seven are was for resolution the a six thousand line was the gateway drugs I called it into mere less for Sony the a seven is your all around camera and the nine for action. Of course, the seven ass being for low light shooting and video or was since then they've Kinda all matured and they kind of dabble capably in each. Other's areas I like that a seven ass but I didn't love it. You know it could see in the dark and that was pretty darn amazing. But for what I was shooting at the time, it just didn't cut it. So I got rid of it. I had my defoe ass after all and later on at the D. seven fifty and then later came the as seven asked mark too which was way better. I didn't get one. Though and now finally the a seven asked mark three a body that if you're shooting in crappy lighting conditions a lot, let's say mainly, this is the body that you want. Sony. As we know has been absolutely killing it for years now. So at this point, you just can't go wrong with a Sony and that's coming from Fuji. Film. Guy If you need and that's the operative word here need full frame and DSR's are dead to. You go Sony I mean you just do if you want a pse crop, you go Fuji Film, take the savings on not having a buy full frame glass and then you just call it good and good the a seven ass is not great. Great is the word you're looking for it has a twelve megapixel backside illuminated sima sensor. Okay. That's where I probably lost something. You guys right it's still has a twelve megapixel sensor will. Yeah. The goal isn't massive resolution. It's light sensitivity. So you keep the mega pixels lower and with each iteration of these cameras, you can not only shoot in lower light. Those images are going to be less normally you're just not going to see a twenty four Megapixel, a seven S. model for at least five years or more, and honestly they could wait a decade and we'll be just fine I. think the very next one the. Mark Four, which would probably see in two to three years from now, at most is going to be sixteen Megapixel, you just wouldn't go higher than that. If you're GONNA want low light sensitivity and smooth nice noise free for the most part images you go higher in the Megapixel and all of sudden that's all mostly out the window besides who needs all. Those mega pixels when people are increasingly viewing your images and video on a smartphone or tablet rather than a computer. So there's that. Now what is new in this body is that has incredibly fast readout speeds a native ISO range of eighty on up to I s O. One hundred and two, thousand, four, hundred that's unbelievable and that's things to the new. Processor you can also capture four K. video at up to one hundred, twenty P and four K. Sixty P ten bit for to two with no pixel binning or line skipping and sixteen bit pro res- raw out the HDMI port up to four K. Sixty. P.

Negative Mount Pleasant

"So there's this tiny town in Wisconsin called Mount pleasant populations just twenty, six, thousand people, village and life in Mount. Pleasant is usually is quiet as you'd expect. Their suburb of Racine, home of malted milk and the sight of some of America's largest cabbage farms. But that's the city now presents the suburb place were nothing really happens. Until last year when the village became the site of a completely unprecedented massive international experiment. Truth. Even Mundane. It's going to tell the story this fall. I went to pleasant to meet this woman named Kelly Gallaher. Hi. Halley. commanded she lives in his ivy-covered split. Level House my home is located about. A little bit over a mile from from Lake Michigan so. Did she say? It's really beautiful out here by receiving. It's like a very light blue almost like a Caribbean vibe. It's it's all about the light I think it's magical. I think. I even like how the lake looks on my gps. Like it that much Kelly has been here for thirty years and she used to be an arts educator. But now she's basically retired. When did you start getting involved in kind of more? I don't I don't know what to call it activism or just Kinda village. What would you call it well? What if there is a name? I think other people have a lot of names for for what I do but. Ones I I probably wouldn't care to repeat the polite name that Kelly's detractors might use for her is busy body. She's an extremely vocal participant and the town's local democracy and her main stage is this place called village. Okay. The hours upon us I would. Like to open the village board meeting, Order Religions. Village Hall which sits right next to the local white is where the residents of mount pleasant all gather twice a month with their village government to talk about all the local issues that need fixing through weeds this high in the yard of one of the vacation homes this. Hi. It's been vacant for I. Don't know how many years gale for years. It's been vacant. We're going to have some recommendations and numbers for the Lake Park Fluffy Rosen, which is very Army number one on our agenda, our softball game we had this last Sunday for the case athletics. That went over very well to I didn't get any reports of injuries so we're good. Pictures in the paper though in Racine County the mount. Pleasant. Village Hall meetings are famous very well attended. They actually taped the meetings and upload them to the website, and if you're like me and have watched every single wine, you will look forward to the moment when Kelly good evening my name is Kelly Gallaher. Her Red Hair Hoop earrings steps up to the Mike Lees Captain Brian. Smith. Collected thirty three, thousand, seven, hundred and fourteen dollars an overtime pay in addition to his salary vacation. Her tally is basically the local civics watchdog. A joint parks has had no minutes published since April two, thousand, fourteen almost every week she uses her allotted three minutes to make it very clear to the people in power that she has her eye on them is outrageous by mount pleasant standards. Hauled corruption and we intend to get to the bottom of it. Thank you. Thank you for weekly Sunshine and good share. That man who sounds very exasperated that is Dave degroot village president. He is sitting behind this big long table in this large office chair at the center of the screen, and he's flanked on both sides by his six village trustees. Dave. Runs this meeting David Kelly. Like each other they disagree on pretty much. Every single thing to do with the future of Mount Pleasant. Kelly has a sign on her front lawn that says David degroot must resign and David grew lives ten doors down from her. It's an intense block and Kelly told me that it got especially bad about a year ago when she was helping Dave's opponent in the village election. The previous March when he was running for office, he sent out a press release a basically accusing me of egging his house. Egging his house Yes yes. He filed a police report and suggested in his press release that I had been involved in the attack the political at an actual literal egg attack on his home, which the police report did not verify at all. In fact, it was the the described it as as teenagers and a single egg that was tossed on his driveway was hardly an attack I was not there. I only buy organic eggs which are far too expensive to throw it. Anyone's house let alone someone I don't like it was it was ridiculous. So it's fair to say that my relationship with with him was contentious I think he's a fool and a terrible per village president.

What It Was Like to Interview Shima Oliaee

"Hello and welcome to fight podcasting the show in which. Discuss their craft I'm your host Sky Pillsbury. This is a post show episode in which two very special guests will talk to me about last week's episode in which I interviewed Dolly Pardons America producer. Mo only if you haven't heard that episode, I recommend going back and listening to it before you listen to this one that way, our conversation may make a little bit more sense. Today on the show I have with me, the two people most likely to remember my obsession with Dolly Parton. My wonderful parents welcome to the show, mom and Dad Hey. Hi there. Thank you so much for saying yes. Welcome On this kind of show you guys get to ask me questions. I have the first question here ready to go all right dad. Right. Do you feel a part of dollars America? That is a really good question Yes, I think am I mean I must be one hundred percent because I'm a fan, so I think by default that makes me part of her America, because you know I know who she is. I adore her like so many others. Of course that begs the question like what is Dolly, Parton America, and I think one of the points that she made in last week's episode was that Dolly is sort of this prison for everyone else's story? And I'm not sure that I have a particular story to tell but I think that the aura surrounding Dolly is sort of like. Everyone can be part of it. No matter what walk of life you come from and so I guess in that regard. Be Part of Dolly Parton America. She talked about the feelings of otherness enduring during her show. Do you resonate with that at all? I probably don't if I'm being really honest and. That's because I am very privileged in my life, so you know I am female. I'm white. I've had opportunities that many many people don't get to have. I went to college. I got a good job after college. I sort of did the things that I expected I would do. Thus far in my life. But I think that the way that I can relate with that was what Shima said about how she and Chad are both first generation Americans and you are a first generation American, Dad. And so you know what it made me think, and even in the show, because during the show Jad talks about how her dollies Tennessee Mountain home, reminds his father of his home. Overseas, you know of course I couldn't help but think about our family home in northern Finland, so of course I thought about like the listener. Any listener to this doesn't know is that I grew up going to Finland with you every summer and you know spending many many many many days. Not Whole Lot to do kind of like the countryside of Finland in this tiny town with a population of eight hundred people, where almost no one spoke English, and then of course I would spend a lot of time in Helsinki as well where people did, but you know I remember the excitement that I had the day that you got your citizenship when we were living in Hawaii. I remember you wore a suit and that was a big deal because you were is most of the time. So. You know I remember that feeling, but I don't ever feel I can't say that I ever felt other, but I. Think I knew that you at times felt authored. What about you? Well I guess what I was wondering about is. Dolly is also a what I would call a country girl. you got to know people who were definitely from the country, not from the city. That's true. Maybe I speculate that that may have had something to do with your level of comfort with Dali. Oh. That's interesting. Also expressed some interest in Loretta Lynn during that time. I loved Laura Adeline and I think I I remember i. read the Book About Her. Was the book called? Coal, miner's daughter, I don't know. I did identify with those two, but I don't know I can't like point to a memory where I connected those two things myself. You Know My love for them like I. Really Loved Donna Summer at the same time. She's not from the country and I think honestly I think. They spoke to my infatuation with Glamour, and even though I knew that they were from the country. It's sort of like they were like these unimaginable. Creatures all three of those women. They were like such a shiny thing, and then I love the music and I love to dance, but I think that I always had an interest in people who are different than me, and that's why like when we were in the countryside in Finland like I could hang out with Vinnie me. Who is the violin player? You know for hours or make friends with the girl who lived across the street Rita, even though we. We didn't speak the same language, and like really enjoy those people because it was like exposing me to this completely different way of life. You know just a way of life that I wasn't familiar with and I think that in a way Dali Donna. It sort of showed me a completely different slice of

"When the Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors used to play in the NBA finals every year I mean it seems like a lifetime ago but I do have memories yes it happened a long time ago we have to talk to this gentleman all the time Joe Vardon and now he's gone big is at the athletic he's famous he covers the N. B. A. he's just he did that the tiny town of Cleveland couldn't contain there was no way no way our old friend Joe is back on the only gas line Joe good morning wishes for health and safety to all you and yours and welcome back man are you doing has gone job he oh oh Hey guys well I was a very nice introduction and I it didn't dawn on me as I was waiting on line they did just that time of year the calendar when you call me and you know we had the four years the final than last year the warriors were still there and you know had another finals out there with the raptors and it was great to be back in yeah I'm definitely like I'm jonesing for some bay area here and it's just it's not gonna happen yeah the fifteen fifty warriors are going to get you out there at any time soon man it's but your sport is bubble and man it's happening including like things within the last twenty minutes right we talk about live radio man we'll do live radio is there news here with Joe what can you tell us here I see you wrote a piece in the athletic about Disney world I see tweeted about it maybe this is yeah you had a podcast to catch it so I guess the long way of saying Joe can you catch me up yeah I mean the the news coming out of Disney world is today actually that they're going to open up to their park the late July tenth maybe and then the other two right after that and so basically all four parks are going to be open at Disney world right when the NBA it's going to get started and how that relates back to me is on Tuesday I published a story that the most and beyond the TV contract in beyond the obvious marketing opportunities the Disney will get here by getting to showcase why will sports now that if they had people at their park while the NBA there that sends a pretty big message to everybody watching across the United States and all the all the world which is in give me a steak from the Bronx it's safe for you and so I'm not surprised at all today it could be that that Bob Eiger and and company are are going to capitalize on this and and have the park open in time for the NBA to get there pretty wild man to think of like you know of all the things you could think of in terms of you know Petri dishes of germs Disney I go to Disneyland and not outdoors which is good everything's outdoors much better but man there's not much more crowd scenes than than Disneyland so I it did did the story say I'm sorry you have a chance to read it we were doing the right segment there I did the story say that it's like a limited opening or a measured opening or they just you know to change things like that well I think and you'll have all that match the required you know it's hard the number of people out I'm not sure but when you when you consider that you're only allowing two of the four parks at Disney world to open it like right there that is a limited capacity you're talking about happy okay so yeah okay so it is that makes that makes sense I love the Disney safer lebron is safe for you dude I just stumbled on the that's just not on the slogan I think you did yes and I think Billboard that's the tweet that's the Instagram that's it you just got it I'm waiting the royalties oh man no Jordan player saying you know some players that maybe don't want to put their families in jeopardy here or are swept in and have saliva fly out of somebody's mouth until their body what what are you hearing from players in terms of safety protocols in their in their feelings on that you know I've been in touch with some players on some of the best teams in the league they just walked away unique about the Lakers you talk about the box the clippers they're already go and then you start talking about you know you start talking to some players like on the cab for instance and there's a little bit more of a reluctance to play just for a couple reasons whether it be health or it just be the season from Tencent purposes over already so I I don't I don't want to say that it's like a wide range here because I don't believe that to be true I think the majority of players pretty well pretty pretty well above the then the middle line there do you want to come back and play I really do think that I think there are some concerns for for health and safety especially when you start getting into that realm of a couple guys here and there either have suppressed immune system themselves or have children like that yeah you know you also have to consider what happened with that with quality counts mother you know I mean may she rest in peace like she died from this disease and he didn't catch it from Carl the point is you know when you have this many people gathering implying and bumping and reading on each other like we all said we were probably going to have some transmission of this and it yes it means that none of these guys can see their elderly parents or anybody else like that in their family for you know a few months at least right which is a tough tough deal so it's not not ideal and not easy our talk to Joe Vardon of the athletic wrote a big piece about Disney world potentially hosting everything and then we just got the news this morning at Disney world says they're gonna open July eleventh and it's safe for the bronze safer you they're saying here you know we just saw the NHL had a a situation where they just told some teams like our San Jose Sharks for example yeah we're gonna restart you guys don't need to come back Steve Kerr has said on a number of occasions he does a weekly show on KNBR yeah because they were acting as a first season's over have you heard anything about an NBA that would tell some of those teams at the bottom of the barrel you know what you guys could just stay home we're gonna just gonna do with the NHL did yeah I you know I I don't think that this was a pressure campaign on the part of the warriors mean one of two things had to happen here they either had to have been led to believe that which is what my colleague and and certainly the best in the business implants later has written a few times with that this is what they were led to believe any other one would be well if we just get really loud about this and say we're not planned that could maybe force the NBA in that direction and I want to try to answer your question by pointing your gaze in a different direction which is the NBA cannot make any money off this they can't because they're not gonna have to bear so there's no gate with no concessions and there yes they are doing that to preserve the TV money but that's money they were already get that they don't quite a losing more money if they do play they don't make anything and in the meantime they have this enormous expense of having to live in Disney world for however long it takes and feed and keep these players state contest them and on and on and on yeah and that is going to cost so much money that it just doesn't make sense to bring back the bottom teams that just doesn't matter in the discussion about some kind of plan are expanding something beyond sixteen team to make this interesting and I get it I suppose but I think some of the math and the logistics of all this and like how hard it's going to be to keep everybody safe on sixteen teams let alone thirty point you to the direction they know the warriors may not be crying and they they've been kind of led to believe that for a while yeah and if you saw Damian Lillard's comments yesterday obviously if we come back and they're just like reading a few games if there's regular season and the thermostat the for meaningless games we don't have a true opportunity get the playoffs I'm gonna be with my team because I'm part of a team but I'm not gonna be participating I'm telling you that right now you could put that in there I don't know how much you stay Millard has or how you think that went over in legal offices not great certainly and and that was interesting isn't it you know if if they bring back all the teams and they play well they get paid for that so Damien saying well I'm going to sit on the bench for this money but I'm not gonna play and if they don't if the season's over for them then they don't get paid at the end of their painful for the year you know and they're out of the playoffs full so that's very interesting to me that doesn't seem to really be within the spirit of some of what's going on here you know were all kind of trying to get back into the swing of things but you know I mean then player safety empowerment and are definitely real thing these days and you know I mean there there it just goes back to that argument like what is worth that for health and safety thank god in the idea of a championship being played you know obviously the Blazers out warriors out then we get to your guy guy you know quite well lebron James and this is gonna be the year let's assume there's no pandemic oh boy how great would that be there's no pandemic we would be right now in the Western Conference finals between lebron and Kawhi let's say clippers Lakers I mean do you if you crawl in subtle bronze brain you know no filter truth serum is he is he devastated that this was a chance for him to add to his you know listen the last dance just aired Michael's like don't forget I'm better than you all this stuff and now the brunt if he wins the title this year in some sort of Disney tournament mmhm there's nobody takes this your account that do you that's the thing yeah yeah a few seconds and then you come from I know what to tell you the truth of the story the question either yes what are you what you were saying it John which is is there anybody was there anybody more upset by the pandemic yeah I think they I think the answer to that is well how is he feeling now I mean how is the body now how far out of shape the default I'd say he's probably still going to get a chance I thank and then I was thinking about like when it comes to like the I can't believe my luck complex the lebron sometimes does deal with all that has to do with with the warriors and and Kevin Durant and just sort of you know if you look at the file all the finals like when he brown had really good cats teams except for probably the last one but those those three years anyway only one one time I mean there was the injury in the first year you can say and then when the super warriors got together like that it never really happened before it certainly never happened Michael but it happens so Broner if you think about some of the years where he was really in the running for M. V. P. like patents absolutely can make the case for MVP while you have staff have those too ridiculous here than the warriors you know when more games than anybody ever you have Russell Westbrook you know averages a triple double I mean like that has happened with Oscar and and you know so it will be so the lebron I can't believe my luck I'm set up to win at age thirty five and then a pandemic it yeah we usually gastric thing the thing though I you know I I go back and forth on that because I I've been thinking about like I I certainly didn't feel that way about the Mavericks and eleven right when I was younger I guess I felt a little bit strange about like the spurs one of this first title there mmhm yeah I don't know I mean if if we change all the rules with the playoffs here like that that would seem to cheaper and a little bit for me but if we if you know if if we we played a regular season and now let's let's have an Eastern Conference and Western Conference and play all the games and so long as we do that I wouldn't it a fine aspects to this I don't think well there you go that's the answer I asked you answered so Hey it also go crawling inside lebron's brain how did he analyze it the last dance how did he how do you think he truly in his body felt so the lebron Michael I mean you can really call the relationship I mean it it there is there's a lot of complexity there and lebron he knows that that is not a discussion for him they really engaging it's not one that you went so he is just and deferential if you can be Hey you notice.

"Okay, listeners welcome back to board game impact here with Josh your fellow co host, and we just we're talking through all the news and other updates that have been going on in the board gaming industry as well as a bunch of games have been playing recently in those a lot of fun. But now we're gonna talk about all the fun, and that is because we're gonna talk about the board game. Geek, spring overall experience real quick. And then going to talk about the spiel this euros. So Josh, I'm going to kind of give a quick rundown of what board game. Geek, was all that stuff real quick. And then give the context of where all this comes in, then I'm going to turn the mic over to you to kind of lead the listeners through this whole kind of exploration of the spiel is right, please, please do take it away. Okay. So board game geek, is a website that if you don't have an account on board game, just go to board game, geek dot com. It's centrally the repository for all board games period, came out in two thousand one two thousand two by guy name Scott Alden, and after a couple years, like let's have a convention in, so that's where they started with the BG con that takes place in November. And then about five years ago, they started up this more family oriented one, smaller one called bore BG's spring. And so I say family because the other convention, you have to be older than twelve to go. And this one allows in people under twelve and actually, if we were to have kids like my wife can't. Wait for that day to happen to like go with kids to this convention, because there's a lot, they do for families and support families, which is really, really cool. Both conventions have a library of games. That's exactly the same pretty much except timings of some new games might get added. But that library of games is about six thousand games. That's not all the games that BG owns and pretty much. All these are owned by all the. There's also this big storage, because they're going to get fouls of games in a year. And so they will constantly curate what's in that library. But there's games that are really expensive that you can't find anymore. More out of print or they just came out board game be going to have it. So it's a wonderful weekend to get to try and play all these different fun games. And like it's almost like a dare you to try to play as many as you can because they're so, so many. And so, I know one of our friends posted the she played like twenty one different games in four days, which is incredible. I did not play nearly that many. The couple there really aren't many avent's at this convention like other conventions like gen con or things like that. And it's really not trade show oriented, nor vendor oriented for the spring, one it's really just about coming together as a hobby, and playing games like it's awesome. The there are couple events that do want to talk about. So one, there was a poker tournament that I always participate in, it's just a fun. Little way to connect with people that happened the first night play for a couple of hours. I suck up, but it's a fun way to come together. Because there's a rule this if you're that guy that gal that like you go to Las Vegas all the time or Lennox city like this is not the poker tournament for you. There's a lot of people here who are just learning how to play. So it's a really fun time. And those people who are that person end up taking a new role and that's teaching people how to play poker. So appreciate the kind of the head fake on that. I talked about how the library is huge. There's also a huge amount of storage and last year. BG's spring all the decided to call, so remove games from the storage, because they're running out of space, because they store, the storage, the geek store, as well as the library in a little airplane hangar, and they're currently looking for more a new space from what I've been told but they needed to make room for all the games that are coming in. And so all these aside we'll, if we're going to do this. Let's do it for some for good reason. And so he found out about a nonprofit called cafe momentum in the Dallas area and Dallas like many other metropolises has a pretty high juvie rate of kids going into juvenile delinquency, and then actually having a high recidivism rate and Josh's of you're more your speak in which, because John just doesn't does Davel and conduct universities. Recidivism rate. So the likelihood that simply somebody going back into that system, or committing something again, and it's really really high for kids who were in juvie. And so this one guy then came up with this idea will really given any options of the Guinea, training or trade skills, etc. Because a lot of places won't hire them as a kid, and they're needing economic opportunity. They created a nonprofit co caffeine momentum in which they pretty much only they have internships for people who've been in juvenile detention centers to learn trade skills, and they cycle through running all the operations of this cafe and the numbers in Dallas. The Dallas area has significantly been improved because of this nonprofit and the recidivism rate is extremely almost non-existent. It's almost like zero for anybody who has worked so it's absolutely incredible work going on. And so all the found out about them. And so all his avatar name on BG. So have you ever see him commenting? He's got like the. Will Smith robot movie robot as his avatar? That's all the he's wonderful human. But anyway, so he's like, if I'm going to get rid of these games. Let's have it go for a good cause. And so they sold games for ten dollars a game. So I got some Ryan lock it games. I got some. I got two games in the in the in the charities and the storage sale the next day they put those games up for five dollars and then they also had some very rare games. So I actually got to see a first generation power grid by freedom and freeze that had a different name that had a board that looks nothing like what it looks like today, it had dots on it, and it came with a pack of crayons, because you actually made your little routes in the head. So, yeah, it was phenomenal. You could buy that for like one hundred bucks 'cause like that makes sense. It all went to a good cause and actually raise fifteen thousand dollars that weekend for that, nonprofit. So wonderful, wonderful thing going on Josh. Dr earlier about me, Marie condo ING. So if you have not watched Marie, condos special on Netflix encourage you to do that. So what it is, is essentially, you take all the items of the same items. Let's it's boardgames, who would who would do. This. But I did it and you take all the board games in your abode in your house, and you put them in one place, all of them. Yeah, they could be on the shelf. Take them off the shelf, put them in the plug on the, the bed, or for my case, the table, you put them on one place. I don't buy them and say, does this spark joy. Now, here's the problem games are made for entertainment. So it's really hard to say really say no sparked. Yeah, they all sparked joy. And also, it's like the precious from Lord of the rings. So all these games sparked joy. But my the question I added to that, because that wasn't enough. I had to ask, but is it adding value in my collection? Am I going to play it again and would someone else potentially get a lot more use out of this than I am? And so it had to meet those questions for me. And so of the games that I have I literally purged more than fifty games for my collection. And I gotta tell you a oh, like this is gross for all these games when they were in one pile. But then I was able to beautifully put the games ahead left into the shelves perfectly no games. I had games on the floor in the past in the closet like all my games perfectly neatly on display in the game room. And I just felt liberated doing Bruce enough shaming my board game collection exploding all over every room of my apartment. You're this type of thing is not for everybody. And I'm going to absolutely say that. But for me it was good. And for us, it was good. Now how I got rid of the game because that's purging is step one. I really just put him in another room, that room looked gross for several days, actually a couple of weeks. How I purge them though the board game geek has two different avenues for that. The verses of virtual flea market, so you can go on a couple of months leading up to the convention, and people will post games for sale. This is actually a forum, that's actually led by some people who are just volunteering their time. And you can post games for sale and you can also go on and purchase games or like bid on game. So some people do it as an auction. Some people offer like, here's the price. I'm kind of firm on it, and then the other thing and then you have an hour, meet up at the actual convention trade games that places a cacophony then there's the board game bizarre which used to be called the flea market, but that was confusing. So now it's called the board game bizarre, which is essentially, you can sign up to have a table. And then you set up your, your all the games you're bringing for display posted notes on them and what you do is you're there and people have one hour and people walk through the room and they'll offer your prices. Typically, what happens is people typically slash their prices at the halfway point. And so I started the bizarre with, like forty three games. And at fifty five minutes, I got rid of every single game. I brought. And then I bought one game in the virtual flea market, and I got to in the charity sale, and then I got one for tending the convention. So I came with forty almost fifty games, I left with four and I'm very excited about the four I have, and I had people come up to me after the flea market and the bizarre. Like, hey, I just wanna say, thanks, because you weren't trying to like gadgets for prices and stuff. It was just like you really do just want these games to go to good homes and I'm like, yeah, that's it. And actually, it helped pay for part of my experience of going to the convention, which was also nice. So that's how I did all that. But the reason besides the family oriented stuff, and I know I've been talking for a little bit. But this is where we're going to really flip. The script the one of the other reasons that made sense for board game geek to make this spring convention is because of this whole spiel this yard. Nomination process, German game of the year awards. So on the twentieth of may those games were announced for the three categories that we talked about before. So that's the kid's game of the year the game of the year and then the game of the year each of those three different games nominated for them, and they also have to be published in German and have to be available and they cannot be an expansion and they cannot be just a reprint of an older game. They have to be significantly new game. And so that is everything that goes on with that. But the reason that ties back to the convention is because at the convention, they had two of the actual judges from the spiel this yours committee Athen invention, as well as two other assistants that kind of helped because there was another judge, I guess, you couldn't come last minute, and so there was people from sensually eight AM to five PM, and they typically came early, and they typically stay late to teach you every one of those games these people love teaching these games and they. I just wanna see this hobby grow, and that is just wonderful. And this is really the only place to have all those games available setup twenty four seven for anyone to try and they're all set up actually on on game topper. So look super super pretty. So with all that context. Josh, I'm going to turn over the main Mike to you and kind you take it away. Sure. So Bruce, just want to say, I'm again, just how jealous I am that you got to go to g g spring. I find it really interesting that they are doing BG's spring around the spiel czar nominations because if I'm not mistaken. They've traditionally tried to make BG normal convention in November roughly around the time of October November around the time of essence feel so that they can get a lot of those gains brought over as well. If I'm not mistaken, you're not mistaken. That's one hundred percent correct. So the convention in the fall is, like one of the conventions ago, f- to in the United States because board gang week has a presence at Essen.

"Them. Oh, wow. Yeah. So if you're looking at some of the pictures posing during BG that was Michael's game. And I gotta give him credit for the amazing job, you did on the miniatures that we played with as well as including the money didn't play with. And that was the T Rex that occupies, Wayne manor. Yes. Like the T Rex is a thing in the game. But he he's painted out all the hero. So we got to play with fully painted heroes. We got to play with a fully painted Bain and some of the other villains, and he keeps sending me pictures to tease me about all the other villains. So Gotham city chronicles is a board game though. Let's get back to the gaming. In which you are essentially games of old, and this is how Michael would describe it. Michael said that what got him into gaming is games. Like hero quest where one player plays an overlord type character and everybody else's against that character the overlord controls all the minions. So in this case, he was controlling all of the villains, and then we were each controlling our own independent character. So I was playing Batman I was playing Robin playing as Bluebird several other characters we played a couple of times. And so we were going through different scenarios, like the first scenario is we're in this like blown up kind of subway station and bane was there with the als. So if you're familiar with Batman Lawrence, what I'm talking about this. And there was bombs spread out. So we had to do is we had to disarm four of the five bombs by seventh seventh round, which is very difficult. And how we did that as we had these little cubes, and we had a total, depending on your character between, like nine eleven so I had eleven because Batman new more things and move those cubes different little spots on your player board. And then however many cubes you're all their how many cubes are there, plus any kind of bonus that spot has is how many of different colored dice you have, and you'd roll those Dyson? However many successes what you have. And then he has this player board his own player board with all the villains on these cool little tiles that he can allocate. His little cubes for to give him extra bonuses. Give him some extra defense, etc. So it's really fun to kind of go back and forth. Michael memorized, the different scenarios that we were playing, and he would feed us, like we were playing a role playing game of like, okay you've done this. Now this happens. What are you going to do? So that was really, really cool as well as Michael had little character sheets for every single character in the game. And I'm talking like a giant stack of these things, and all of the special actions that they can all do. He knew it all the icons were everything, everything. And for those you've ever played Conan, which had also by monolith games came out a couple years ago that game works off of the same MEC mechanics. And the reason I talk about how he had all these things prepared because without that Josh we could not have played this game. The rule book for this game, there's like four rule books. The scenarios themselves have little logos because it went for its own independent iconography. So that way, they could be language independent. Not language dependent. And so there isn't really a place that explains all of those logos are except in the back of the one rulebook. But that's also the same rule book that has the layout of that map, and then another part of the rulebook has because you're on this different terrain. And so we were on this catwalk and it was like we didn't know until because he explained that it was, too. It's too story elevation down to the main floor and we're going to get hurt. If we jumped off the only way to know that is to flip back and forth, some very thankful. We had somebody who knew all the things and then on your player board, which has this little insert that has your character with all their special icons. There was nothing explaining what all of those icons were for each of the players. And because you needed to look in that rulebook that's already being looked somebody else to look at something on the board. And so the fact that he went through the time to print out and then laminate all of these individual character sheets, which honestly. Should have been something in the base game. It should have come with the character sheets like too many bones. Did does where it has character sheets for all these individual Carter's because there's so much to them? So there was a lot of lot of rule. Checking that read luckily didn't have to do that anyone else has to do. There's a huge barrier to this game, which is super sad because this thing has the production quality of its phenomenal. Like this game was built for Kickstarter. It has all the looks it has all the possess. But then they didn't pull it through with the actual core mechanics of the game. And we had to execute everything pretty much perfectly in order to get things to work. So I couldn't just be Batman beat things up. I had to do the strategic things. Now, here's the deal, though. Josh, I know I've been talking about this for a little bit. And I know it just went into this big ranch. I still had a lot of fun. But I had a lot of fun because I had somebody that reduce those barriers for me and was there to support me. And when I had questions, he wasn't playing the role of no, you need to figure stuff out. I'm not gonna give you a hint. It was. No, let's have a fun time together like the same conversation. We just had about endeavor age of sale, where it's like, no, let's actually come together and help each other out. Let's talk through things. Michael came it everything from that lens, and like he is a good friend, and I am so thankful. And honestly, he lives up in Dallas. And I might just take a weekend drive to Dallas to play through a couple more campaigns of this and a couple more of the little scenarios because it was I had that much fun playing this game with him. But I couldn't I can easily see this game not flying in a bunch of game groups unless you have that investment unless you have those things a lot of people can't do that this game Kickstarter only, but they are coming out with the season two of. This Kickstarter very soon. And they've already announced some different villains, and some different things are throwing in it does have a couple other story. Modes you can do where each that overlord character controlling a suite of characters not just one. There's a lot of layers of this game. A lot of things if you have the ability to have that investment. But again, this has a lot of as a looks freaking gorgeous. But they just didn't in my opinion, didn't follow through on things for the average gamer. Yeah, I, I pass this real to be honest. I pass this up on Kickstarter because it was ridiculously priced this game to go all in was a huge chunk of change several hundred and. I like comic books I like superheroes. Batman was never my favorite. I'll just own that. But, you know everything about this game looks phenomenal. Like you said seeing pictures of it on the table. Looks great. It looks fantastic. You are not the only person I've heard that the. It is not intuitive in terms of the. The way in which the board is laid out, right? You're I cannot graffiti is not ideal. I think would would be the way way to say that. But is like your experience is one that, that I could see really working for a lot of people. It reminds me a lot of an RPG. We talked about playing RPG's earlier in the in this episode right? I, personally I started. D M ING, I've only deemed a few one offs. I've never done a full campaign. And even then it was several years after I had been playing the game. And I learned through as Moses how to play the game. It takes a special person to pick up a dungeon masters. Handbook, a Mosser's manual a player's handbook, and all of the other material for a dean D campaign and read a good chunk of that. And learn all of the rules and figure all of that out just by reading. But if you've been doing it and you've been playing it for all. I'll and this is the type of game that it looks like you could get a lot of play out of this without. Owning a lot of other games, you could you could really dive into this game. So, yeah, I agree. It's not something that I don't think I would ever want or need in my collection. But it sounds like if you have someone in your group who is willing to put in on the front end to learn all of those rules and learn all of the. Kind of fiddly intricate ways in which the board interacts with the players and all that sounds like it can elicit a lot of fun. If you have that fun delivered to you in a more digestible manner, and so that's really what it comes down to. And I think it really well, but I do just want us against thank you Michael for doing all that, because that's not something, a lot of gamers have have access to you. So thank you. Thank you. Thank you. And I'll see you again. That'll be said that's the games for right now. We do have two quick things of note for business. And then we will be taking a break, so last episode or episode before that, actually, it might have been. We talked about the announced potential tariffs in. It's still at this point potential tariffs on board games dice all kinds of stuff from China with this trade war, essentially going on, and that the open forum for that is going to be taking place on June sixteenth. I believe, so this is not a thing, that's a thing yet. But the they have come out with the number, and that is twenty five percent tariff. And so, again, that's on the cost of the manufactured goods. So if you the cost of manufactured goods is fifty dollars when it hits the states is going to get hit with an extra twelve fifty so that means that most likely prices, you will see an increase, maybe not to that extent, but some sort of increase to goods from. China on the board game realm now listened to a couple other podcasts and talked to a couple of people in the industry, and there's about eighty plus percent of board games in the US that are made in China. This is like a big deal. Now the problem and the reason I wanted to bring this up for quick news segment for the listeners is because I've been getting reports from people from game stores as well as publishers, as well as x y z other types of where you'd get a game where they're already announcing to their customers about this tariff getting into place. Warning them about the price increases, and in some cases, already increasing the price. It's not even fully thing yet. Now in talking to you one publisher. I just asked about this real quick. They said, well, here's the deal with some of those games, they may be having to pay at the docks for that..

"Essentially farm, there's the essentially a citadel type thing all seven of those have a little tetris design on the bottom of them. And so might be a little tetris L where it has a BRIC, brick and then a wheat, and then a wood, and that if you have that arrangement on your grid, you can say, I'm going to build and you collect those three spots, and then you take that respective building. And you put it in one of those three spots. So here's the thing. Some of them though, require like six or seven, and so as you get more and more buildings on your little grid. You have less and less spaces where you can put a cube. And so you keep playing until you can no longer take something or build. So you can't do anything else, there's no space left, and then you will, remove all of the resource the cubes that you have left on your board. And then you get minus one point for each of those. But you'll get a lot of points off of your off of the other things. So like the cottages of the seven was really cool. As the cottages is always the most easy one to build and it's always the same card, the other six each have their own deck of four cards. So the variability of you'll never have the same exact game again is high like that's awesome. And so every time you play it's gonna be slightly different with hallmarks of the same thing. So if you're a group that likes rolling right games, if you're someone who likes having that slight take that by, like giving yourself something I'm going to take wood, and you're not gonna want would but you have to take it. Or you just want to spend a good thirty minutes with a nice little puzzle, and regardless, if you win or lose you feel like I just delta town. This game is going to be for you. AG did a phenomenal job with this game. Every single one of the buildings is a different piece of wood in a very nice color in a very nice design. It looks really good on the table. It has people flocking to it and then art. That's on the cards. All this cards, document aren't like these little, like playing cards. They're full on tarot size everyone at the table can see them real easy as well as they've really nice, art. And so, like, if it's the monastery looking thing it's got these little like chipmunks in among suit. And so it's really cute too. So if you're somebody who really digs like cool, or different art. So we've talked about raccoon and other games like you're gonna like this game. Honestly can't say enough about this. And then the price tags only thirty five bucks. That was actually my, my comment. I was about. I'm really, really glad that you were able to get a shot at this. This has been a game that's been on my radar for a while now probably three or four months really since it came out and. I haven't pulled the trigger on it yet. I've just kind of been hanging out waiting on. It looks really, really good. It looks very light, which was my concern was if it would be to light of a game for what I typically get to the table. It sounds like that is not necessarily the case it sounds like the mechanics are pretty simple. Yep. But, but probably the puzzle is pretty complex. So I was actually playing this with a Biji team geek and he actually went to be just to play solo games because he's like I'm really into solo games the library here is incredible. There's a lot of games have been wanting to try. And so he came for that reason and wonderful, wonderful human being. With a very funny avatar. They'll tell you after this recording because it is not really appropriate. But anyway, so he sat down with me. I'm like, hey, we got thirty minutes play the only game him and I got to play. And I'm very thankful for it because he's like, man. This is like super easy. And then like to moves into goes, oh my God. And this is a guy who always plays solo game. So he's used to this whole, like solving a puzzle. What he does, but even he was like, there's a lot of depth here, ended up beating him by a single point. We were super close. But yeah, so it's got a replay a lot of replay ability if you want to learn the rules, there's even a watch it plays. Rodney did watch it played for this so that we can learn it. So highly recommend checking out as tiny towns by rate. Definitely something on my list of purchase for awhile, definitely going to have to take another look at it. So Bruce, I do want to briefly jump back to a game. We talked about last week because interestingly enough, we talked about a this is a Kickstarter another time that we talked about a Kickstarter and immediately after I decided I had to get this game back to the table. I said, I was going to do it and I did game is in Dever age of sail. So listeners. For just your knowledge. We talked a little bit about it last episode age of sail has a new endeavour has an Kickstarter coming out. It should be launching in the next couple of weeks. I believe it's June fourteenth. Yes. So, so about two weeks from now from the time of this recording. And endeavor is a game at taste place in the age of sail in which you are playing as European powers trying to make trade negotiations with different continents to set up colonies on different continents to take resources and. To co elect victory points really, at the at the end of the day, you'll earn points based off of if you are the governor of certain colonies, they will award you certain points. If you have a higher rating on your building, or cultural, or economic track than other players, you'll get victory points, you'll get points by owning trade connections. So if you have ownership of a. Of a outpost and say North America ownership of the shipping lane from Europe North America and ownership of an outpost in Europe that connects those you'll score some points. They're really kind of a neat way to set up this game. It follows some really interesting historical context of one of the things that. It's interesting I didn't realize this when they reprinted the game. There's actually a piece they talk about there's a mechanic in the game in which you can utilize slaves. And one of the interesting things reading through the rule book, again, is they actually explain why they left this mechanic in the game even though it may not necessarily feel good. And I think part of that is, it's not supposed to feel good. It is supposed to be make you feel uncomfortable because you get a really nice benefit by taking those. Resources. But it will hurt you in the end game, it most likely they will be negative points for you at the scoring. But there's also this really uncomfortable feeling of like I could shoot ahead early on score a whole bunch of points, but it feels weird and it feels uncomfortable. And. It has this kind of impact of getting you thinking about. History. In that way of putting yourself in this position of do you make the quote unquote economically smart decision or do you forgo that option? Ignore. The fact that you will potentially lose out on some victory points, the because it feels better and a you, you feel above that. So as this sounds like they did it will I in my opinion. Yes, I think especially rereading kind of the, the publishers explanation for why they chose to keep the mechanic. I think it, it makes sense. It works. It elicits some emotion from players reasonably. So but I think it is done in a of a way that gets people thinking, sure. Sure outside of the game itself. So I gotta I just gotta ask so some ways that some games approach things like this actually seen a recent game review. The unit can talk about after the show that goes into this about a different game where essentially the glorify that time period to say, like this is what it was right. But in this case, it actually seems like no we're not going to whitewash it. We're going to recognize that this was a thing that happened, but we're also going to recognize that, you know what in the end like the game itself is going to say like that. That was a bad choice. It's short term gains for you. But like morally that, and so it sounds like they did a good job of like. Being correct in the time period, but also meeting it with where we are today as a civilization. Yes and no. I, I will give a downfall game of I think it still does a little bit it. Addresses, the slavery. It doesn't necessarily address the colonialism. Gotcha. So that got one not both not both. If you can look beyond that the game mechanics are really good. The game mechanics are solid. It's a fun, little so. The way the game plays out, you build a building each round you build a building that building becomes an action, which you can take utilizing workers. You gain workers after the start of each round, which you use on those bases, which will allow you to make trade actions, take colonize actions attack your opponents to take over there, colonize spaces. The mechanics are good. The theme can feel a little iffy to people. Now they also added in the reprint. The a separate mechanic, which I did not explore fully I was teaching the game to some new players. And so I just wanted to teach the base game. So I haven't had a chance to explore all of what the age of sail reprint has to offer but this is stuck itself in my game bag and I, I am dedicated to getting a couple more place through playthrough in before the Kickstarter releases, because like I said the game playing this is really, really solid, if you can acknowledged that there are some problematic issues with the timeframe and the time period that that the game works in. I think there there's a lot of depths of game play there. So. Yeah. Again, probably something that some people won't enjoy because of the theme term thing. That's fair. Absolutely. Absolutely. And I thank you for you listeners, for kind of letting us engage in some of that talk. I know that, that can be a little touchy, but honestly, we, you said at the beginning, Josh, and I both purchase from an educational end, so I'm glad that we were able to dig in there and see how they were able to talk about the one topic, but also address the other aspects of not talking about the colonialism but also the fact like, regardless of those things, glorifying it. That's really just there's a good game here in these things happened in those periods. But I like the fact regardless, that the designers put it in the rule book and actually talked about it, they're not going to just put it in there and just be like a thing. So I like that intentionally. But listeners that is your kind of warning on that too. That is something that it's not gonna work with your game. We're just know that. But also, if you bring it out, and you're like, let's see how this goes understand that, that the game might indulge some people to go into a conversation about that, which also like, really healthy for society, and I will say the, the two times that I've played this. So I got to play the original two thousand seven version at BG con two years ago. And then this is the first time I've actually managed to get this to the table since the reprint over last summer and. Both of those times that, that the, the game is at the table, it does elicit those conversations in, you do kind of, and it's interesting, I raise like I feel weird about this. The game is fun. But I feel uncomfortable in weird with what is with the theme ING, and I'm just going to call it a good sign of a healthy game group is for you to be able to engage in tension. And so if there's something going on negative and game group, do you say something like are you friends to the level of being able to engage in conversation because like that's something we should be able to do? And so I'm going to move us on, but because I think we talked about the topic a lot. But I do like that we had it. So I got one more game for us, and then we're going to go into some quick news. And then we're gonna take a quick break and talk about everything Biji but I have one more game that I played at BG. I'm not going to be talking about the games. I played outside of the spiel games at BG. So this game I got to play with a guy named Michael few tiles is his avatar, specifically calling him out for a reason, and that is because if you go to the board game impact website, you'll notice that my picture has changed, and I am holding this giant captain America shield. The thing is actual metal, and that is Michael's shield. So Michael thing called extra life in which he flies to different conventions and actually raises money for children's children's miracle network and also like children's hospitals like a really good. 'cause he does that by playing games. Mostly coconut oil, and he hustles people at curl Connell. But Michael is a wonderful human being who have now known for the last two years. And Michael went all in on Batman, Gotham city chronicles by monolith. I was a big kick starter, very Big Sur. And as a Bruce, I am very inclined to the Bruce, Wayne variety and the Batman. I just do not have the funds to back something like that he brought all I think it was in boxes of this game. And there's about one hundred minutes. There's that are all pretty much different. And here's the thing he painted a third of them. Oh, wow. Yeah. So if you're looking at some of the pictures posing during BG that was Michael's game. And I gotta give him credit for the amazing job, you did on the miniatures.

"tiny town" Discussed on Board Game Impact

"We gotta get something going. How about we try a one shot? So for those of you who aren't familiar, a one shot is where you're not doing a whole campaign, you century roll up character. Right. Then and there and you do a one off story that has no connection to anything else. But this wasn't like DND. This wasn't any of the other systems I've ever used. There's actually a sub read it called. RPG one shots. And so it's like our slash RPG ones one shots. And on there, there's free one shot campaigns one shot adventures, you can do. It's all the links to this in the podcast notes listeners. If you wanna go check out any of those separates. The one we played there's one, one of them was like good cop bad cop. You play as a partnership. We didn't play that one. There's another one. That's like y'all play his grandma's. We didn't play that one. We played the one called the witch is dead. And what it is, is the you are woodland animal, and what you do is what the story is, is. You are all familiar 's for this one witch that lives on the outskirts of town and a width and you're gone about your day, just fine. And then a witch hunter came by and killed the witch. And you know of a potential way to bring her back to life. And that is to take the eyes of the which hunter whoever killed the witch and do this little thing. It's actually really, really nice graphics and stuff for this literally one sheet of paper for all the rules for all of the things need to roll. And so we rolled to figure out the history of the town, we rolled to figure out what kind of character we are. And then what type of hedge magic are which taught us. And so for me, I rolled that I was crow gave me a couple of basic things on like being sly right crow not as much as the cat though. But I was also able to be quick because I was bird. But then I was also able to cause distractions and what we have to do is we had one week in game time to go and find this hunter, and then recover the is and bring them back. So it was actually really, really fun experience you played in all of two hours, that's including learning the rules as well as rolling. For our character, which Josh, I know like that never happens we completed an entire story in two hours. It's really all an art of improvisation, but it brought us some cool things in players by trying to act like okay. Well, how would a crow a dog and a cat interact together, and how what would they do when they go into town? And so it was really, really cool. So I actually pulled a to cause a distraction as I want to be like one of the birds on one of the windex commercials and fly into the wall, just to distract them, because that's like I didn't know there was glass, quote unquote, and so was just a lot of fun. And Josh and now you've played roleplaying games for this kind of thing interest. You, you know, I think that thing that interests me about this, the most is what you just said. In terms of the timeframe, two hours to learn a rule set developed characters and play a game to conclusion is pretty unheard of. I mean right. I think I probably take twice that long just to roll up a character Indian d-. I, I've had less experience with other. Systems than than you have, Bruce, I, I kind of keep in that dean D wheelhouse for the most part, but this is definitely something that I think is interesting. I think it's a nice way to learn some new systems and learn some different mechanics. I definitely be interested in giving this shot. I think the only thing that would prevent me from doing this is just my game group. I have a group that plays board games and I have my group, the place de the only reason I've never done any other type of RPG, is that learning curb. So I think that this might kind of help get over that hurdle a little bit something like this. That is a little bit easier to learn easier to, to manage. So I'm glad that you sounds like you had a good time with it. Yeah. It is everything you do. Everything did you roll a d ten and then the DM the, the done? Master game Astor picks threshold like you have to be a six where nine super difficult. And then they just pick the most appropriate skill that you're trying to add to it. So it's either clever. It was quick fierce or sly. Does it like so out actually use it to maybe introduce the whole concept of role playing and like that in provisional improvisational storytelling? But the original, author of it is grant, Howitt just wanna give him credit. Yeah. Great. Yeah. So let's which back the board gaming, though, sure. So I'll go from game. That's been sitting on my show for a while to one that actually just made it to the shelf really excited about this one, and that is futile them. I believe it was a while ago. Now that we actually talked about the expansion to feud them on this podcast. And I mentioned that there that while the game sounded really intriguing. It sounded. Right up my alley and something that would probably, but probably something that would sit on my shell for awhile. So I wasn't willing to spend the money I was actually able to get my hands on a kick starter. Addition copy of Jayme really, really beautiful. The artwork is just phenomenal the components, especially some of the Kickstarter, exclusive components are just fun nominal. I spent a good chunk of time when I this came in just playing with the components, they're, they're really, really nice. And surprisingly did not sit on my shelf. All that long manage to actually get out twice in the past week to the table once as a two player game once the three player game in that order in that order. I will say it was better as a three player game than a two player game. I honestly believe that really this needs to be a four to six player game. The is technically two two five. There is an expansion that can add a six player in which I was lucky enough to get with the game. And. The. The reason I say that I it probably needs to be at a higher player count. So one of the unique aspects to this game is you are putting workers out onto the board and your workers are a die and based off of which side of your die. Your worker belongs to a guild and then you're guilds are around the board. And so the more workers you have, and the more of specific types of land, you control. So let's say you have a farm worker out and you own a couple of farms, you increase your standing in the farmers guilt accents. Or you have a Royal person, you have a Royal pawn out, and you have a couple towns. So the town's plus your Royal worker, add to your standing in the royalty guild. And so you're trying to manipulate your standing in these guilds and, and there's some area control there, some economics going on in terms of how you trade. I could probably talk, well, I did in explaining the rules to people. It is probably an hour and a half to teach this game wolf. That's not playing it. That's just teaching it, it is because every rule requires an understanding of another rule. It is brain Bernie. It is deep. It is heavy, it's probably a good two to three hours playtime on top of that learning time. But I think is really really good game design. I think is really interesting. It's exactly the type of game that I want to play it is not going to be for everyone ruin I will own that just in terms of the complexity the. Length. It is it is not going to be everyone's Cup of tea. But I think it's really, really good in order to be competitive though, I do think you need to have a higher player count. I think that the two to three players just makes the ability for one person to control a guild a little too easy for. And I think that. Now I haven't played enough to really understand all the depth to strategy of the game. I will own that. But I think there appear to be some strategies that are more likely to be successful when it is a lower player, count them make sense. So I recommend it. It isn't expensive game. But you didn't buy it. Right. I did not. So I used BG's marketplace tool, so BG has a system where you can. List all of the games that you own. You can also list all of games that you would like to trade, you can create a separate list of games. You would like to receive a trade, and then they will the website will generate for you. A list of people who though match you up, basically, harmony. That's great. I not used it before the downside to it is, you do have to end up paying for your own shipping. Shipping board games. Can get kind of costly the large game. It is I was actually lucky enough. I have been trying to similar to Bruce you posted about this in, in the Facebook page, you Marie condo. Your game collection ended, I did buy a lot. And I'm gonna talk about that when we talk about a board game. Yeah. I kind of did a similar process. And so I got I was trying to unload, a lot of games and was able to trade a good chunk of games for I think I traded fifteen games for like five back and in the process, I it was with us specific company that that specializes in trading. So they were able to get the discount on shipping, which made it a lot easier to manage that. I got rid of a lot of games that I don't play go hang for. Yeah. Four new games that that I'm really looking forward to being one of them. So I assume they're all not just like giant games because feedoms giant that could be like smaller games and a mix of some medium games that they balance out to kind of make it a equitable trade. Is that right? Yes. So I, I got few them I got another bigger game empires, the void to and then to medium weight games. So. And then all of the games that I traded were relatively smaller lighter way or older games. But it really worked out. I think in my favor like I said it chief two goals of mine got me, four games that I'd really wanted, but not had not been willing to spend the money on because at least two of them were more expensive games. And spoiler alert for later when we talk about me, purging, Mike election, not, because I don't like the games is just a hit a lot of games. And I wanted to slim things down, who running out of space, in her house, and also want them to go to homes where they're going to get played. Right. And so I actually my ratio is more like fifty three. That was my ratio from board game geek and I'll talk about that here in a little bit interesting. The game that I am actually in talking about now. Josh though is very different than feud him so years was where all the things are interconnected said this game still has that interconnectivity. But this game play in about twenty minutes, and that was tiny towns by Aldrich, entertainment groups or AIG. This was essentially the game of the convention, and I did message AG and let them know that you couldn't check this thing out, you had to find someone with one of the two copies in the library. Find them sit with them, wait till they finish make new friend, walk with them to the library. They checked in the game. You checked it out. Like, that's the only way you got to do it, unless you're like me and I found somebody who also had a copy and I was just texting him like when can I borrow it? But then after that, of course, then I got to check it out of the library, of course after two days. So tiny towns is a really fun puzzle. It's a very quick game. You can play with one person or up to six in the base game. How it works is you have a grid in front of you, as well as a whole bunch of resources. Now, this is going to sound like I'm explaining Catan, but I'm not so you have would you have brick you have wall, you have wheat, you have? Or but then you also have one other resource. I can't remember exactly which one that is right now. But essentially, what happens is you take those resources. And let's say it's my turn, Josh. And you and I are playing I would say, okay, we're all gonna take would and we each take a wood, and we put it somewhere on our grid. Then you would go and you say whatever the heck you wanna choose. You can be a would it could be a glass, that's the last resources could be any of the others. And then we all have to take it, you have to, and you have to put it on your grid now. Why you're doing this is there's a display of seven different buildings. So there's the cottage there's the essentially farm, there's the essentially a citadel type thing all seven of those have a little tetris design on the bottom of them..

"No imagine that living in their squalor were thirty two grown men. Some of them elderly all of them, mentally challenged in some way, and all of them working day after day for almost thirty five years at one of the dirtiest jobs. There is slaughtering poultry. It sounds like a scene from a civil war era movie or a dickens novel. But unfortunately, it's a real life situation uncovered in two thousand nine in rural Iowa New York Times reporter and columnist. Dan, berry writes about these men in his book, the boys in the bunk house servitude and sell Asian in the heartland berry write stories about all fifty states, and he hadn't been in Iowa for awhile. So he looked up some old news stories from the state. There was a very small news item about a law. Lawsuit that had just been decided involving the equal employment opportunities commission. They have brought a lawsuit on behalf of thirty two men with intellectual disability who had been working in a Turkey processing plant in rural Iowa, and they had been making sixty five dollars a month plus room and board for thirty five years. In other words, there pay had remained the same from nineteen seventy four to two thousand nine and this news article went on to say that they had been rescued and that the champion there caused and there was a landmark verdict in favor of the men. I saw that article, and it was very small news item and the top of my head off. I couldn't get my brain around men with intellectual disability living in an old schoolhouse working at a tricky plant and being exploited financially emotionally and physically the schoolhouse where the men lived was in Adelaide Iowa tiny town in muscatine county. But the story doesn't start. They're very says it begins in Texas in the nineteen. Fifties. When people with intellectual disabilities weren't thought to be able to live alongside the rest of us people with intellectual disability were segregated. They were condescended to they were separated from us. They were called names, even the medical terms, were harsh and condescending, and separating imbecilic idiot. Moron. And then when I was growing up, it was retarded all of these are harsh inadequate terms. And that's how these men were perceived as they were young boys growing up in families that oftentimes didn't have the financial or emotional wherewithal to take care of their needs. So when they were twelve or thirteen they were brought to an institution in Texas in Texas, the institutions are state schools, and it's a form of institutionalization. So that further segregated people with disability from the so-called non-disabled world. And that's how they spent their formative years in these institutions during the nineteen sixties and seventies berry says the state of Texas wanted to. Free up beds in the state schools. And there was a movement to return intellectually challenged individuals into the community. A man named TH Johnson stepped in and offered your house and employ a number of the boys on his ranch, and this way, they would become fine upstanding citizens of the community as it was perceived. Most importantly that they would become tax paying of the community that they would be paying for their care. In addition that they would find self worth, and they would have dignity, and they would learn to take care of themselves that was the idea so this program again and after the first year or to teach Johnson was celebrated as a progressive because he was helping to integrate people with this ability into the community. But the problem was that it was exploitative at route. The men were learning a skill. But the skill was simply to catch turkeys. That's a lousy job Turkey don't like to be caught. They don't like to be touched. And so these men with intellectual disability would run around pens try to catch the TOMS and try to catch the. The hens as part of a process of artificial insemination, the men became so good at catching turkeys that Johnson and his partners decided to create groups of men that they could subcontract to various poultry plants around the country in nineteen seventy four one group ended up in Adelaida at a converted schoolhouse that had been made into a dormitory with freshly painted walls recreation area and the life that gave them in the freedom to attend church. And by what they needed in town. However, things were not as rosy as they seemed they were not being paid the same as their non disabled colleagues. So if had is none disabled, and she's working on the assembly line if this rating turkeys, she would be considered working at one hundred percent capacity, but Dan who had intellectual disability would be said to be able to only do sixty five percent of what Pat would do. So then Dan would get paid sixty five percent of whatever pets pay was. But the problem with that arrangement was that was. So rife Rex boy, tation and abuse that the men never were even paid that much. In addition. They were as good as Pat was doing that job. They were very very proficient at the jobs that they had in that plant yet. They were taking advantage of financially book berry profiles number of the men of the Turkey plant men who proved over and over again that an intellectual disability didn't necessarily hold. You back. One is Willie Levi. He was from orange, Texas, very musically, gifted very engaging guy, and he sang in the choir at the local Lutheran church, and he was especially gifted at being able to talk Turkey. He could communicate with the turkeys. And so his job was to get them out of the crates and calm them down. And he would say, okay, Tom. Okay. Tommy would stroke their chest and common down. And then he would turn them upside down hang them on the shackles that would swing into the plant. So he had a great. Passion for these poor animals as they were going off to their swatter, gene. Berg was a really well-spoken guy. Very handsome guy who used to ride around the bunk house property on a little John Deere gator, and he was always dependable very very dependable at work. The men were housed fed and paid though poorly. They were also humiliated and treated like children. I'll tell you one story about a guy named Alfred Busby. Very lovable guy, very proud guy. But one day at the plant, he did something wrong. So they came home from the plant in the evening, and he had to be disciplined. That's the supervisor said. And so what they did was they said Alfred, no television. You're not allowed to watch television. And you have to go right to your room after dinner. Now. This sounds like we're talking about a ten year old boy, but offered Busby was almost forty years old. So it's an example of how the men were being treated as children, you would never say to forty year old man, you have to go to your room and. You can't watch television. But they did that to Alfred Busby. And he was so mortified that in the morning. He ran away. The problem is that it was January in Iowa. And he ran away early in the morning, and it was zero degrees out and he disappeared four months later in the spring thaw. They found his body in field nearby over the years schoolhouse fell into disrepair the men's pay never went up. No matter how hard they work and the men were pretty much destined to spend the rest of their lives in servitude. The Turkey plant there. He says that a young social worker, and George send a memo about the men's pay arrangement to his boss, but it was ignored the Moines. Register did a story on the men, but nothing was done for the year is every once in a while that apartment of labor would stop in and see that the company was abusing the men financially that they weren't paying them properly. So they would find the company and make the company promised to pay the men back the money. They were owed. Of course, the company controlled the men's Bank accounts. And so the money was just simply recycled back into the company. Meanwhile, the government didn't know what to make of this arrangement. It wasn't really a sheltered workshop. It wasn't really a group home. So kind of fell between the cracks of regulation, and the thing just continued on and on and got worse and worse, even though the windows on the schoolhouse eventually were boarded up and the inside was filthy and crawling with vermin berry says the townspeople never suspected anything was wrong as long as the landscaping around. The building was kept up and the men weren't complaining. Why would they it wasn't until the Turkey was winding down operations? And the men were to be sent home that anyone noticed their plight. A relative of one of the men call the company and asked how much money he had in the Bank. The answer was only eighty six dollars. She went ballistic, and she called all the agencies, and I the. She could think of she also called a local reporter at the register. And that led to a social worker named Nedley meal mcglaughlin to go to the house she knocks on the door and she gains entrance. And she could not believe the squalor that she has just found herself in and she cannot believe the conditions of the men berry says that the men's hands were constricted from the work. They did their teeth were rotting and many had foot problems from standing at the plan all day, the fire marshal came and shut down the schoolhouse declaring a fire trap social workers evaluated the men's conditions and eventually found them housing in Waterloo, where they lived on their own the EEOC brought them in case to federal court and a jury awarded each man seven point five million dollars for their thirty five years of servitude. At the Turkey plant in was a great gesture, but none of them ever saw that amount. But that was very quickly knocked down because of caps injury awards for small businesses. So the men were each going to get maybe fifty. Thousand dollars after it was all said and done. And I think the initial group of men were thirty two four of them have since died. These men are rescued and then almost very soon after dies. So their experiences of liberty last very briefly. So the other twenty eight men are going to receive maybe twenty to twenty five thousand dollars each which may sound like a lot to some people. But if you consider that this is money owed to them over thirty five years, including the exploitation. They suffered in the abuse. They suffered. It's hardly payment enough berry says that although the boys in the bunk house have been freed from their years of servitude. That doesn't mean no one else is being exploited in this country shortly after the resolution of this case berry heard from social workers that a similar situation was found in Newberry, South Carolina at another Turkey processing plant. He says the message you wants to communicate your readers is to keep your eyes open because the vulnerable are easy. Targets the story to me signals. How we have to remain vigilant for those were vulnerable in our community. We have to remain vigilant that's one and two. The story speaks to the continuing otherness that exists between the non disabled world and the world of people with this ability and other nece that's segregation that still exists though. It's much better than it was even ten years ago really has to continue to be addressed. You can read about the intellectually disabled men and how they lived through the thirty five years of exploitation and the people who came to their rescue in Dan,.

"He's rocketing up charge. The young people can't get enough of him. Hey, we're talking to Katie Hopkins. I think of you Katie as an as a new friend, even though we haven't met in person. I cannot wait for one of us across the pond. Well, you've been a great hero and a voice for so many people. But I think it's also a rascal and I'd say that's my highest compliment. You would say rascal, which sounds not not very. Hotel. Yeah. Well, no. But but but it's true that you've always got a gleam. And I think that it's that. The humor and the whit beneath all this people recognize that because it's one thing for somebody to be a talking head on these issues, but we've had many people especially here in the states who you know, they can communicate. But they don't do it with any along to use a New Zealand, so. Yeah. And anyway, but your fun your fun to watch. And and by the way, you're on Twitter wanna make sure that people know that they can follow you on Twitter KT Hopkins. That's a K that's t- in Hopkins. All right, then. Well, so you've spoken up an awful lot about what has happened in England most Americans unless they've been there don't have a clue of the Islam's ation of Europe. I mean, it's a stunning thing. I, you know, I know Europe from movies mainly I mean, I've been there many times. But you you forget how radically different it has become. I was walking near Harrods. This is probably about two years ago. I think it was Sunday. I walked for about a mile, and I'm not kidding. It was like the weirdest thing. I saw zillions of of Muslims. I don't know. What was going on? If it was a special day or something. Now. There's nothing wrong with Muslims. That's another. That's another issue. But it just struck me. The demographic change it was staggering. I said this is far different than than I had realized. Yes. Yes. Within been a special day that would have been an average day around not speech Haret's in particular itself, which is still a very popular with the wealthy Saudis that are in London, but certainly the shift here, and it is it does. But describing because it's difficult to get your head around. I've just come back from a small town in Yorkshire York show is sort of rolling hills and a Middletown and it used to make cloth. You know, it's the old notion of this sort of Britain of the valleys and the health will now sabotage a tiny town in Yorkshire is ninety seven percent Muslim. So this town is ninety seven percent Muslim by being shifted the white population by four percent just by being in the town and white minority in Bradford in Luton enlist weizer minority in London now that's not a problem in an open south. No one's saying. We should all be wise, and we should all live in a white place. And it's not okay to be Muslim. But I think when you speak to locals and clearly it's difficult to find a British national living in Sabah time. Weather's ninety seven. But what happens is you almost pushed out from within especially elderly feel so dislocated from anything. They used to recognize. They no longer have somebody. They can say Hello to down the road or at the end of the street or in the shop that used to know. And of course, then you'll surrounded by schools that are different that is filled with Muslim children the language is different Afghanistan. Somali it's rainy, and and you feel very dislocated. And that's what he'll point actually people are on the such a quiet exodus taking place of people on the set for that old culture. And actually defenders I see myself of the Judeo Christian culture, the I'm so proud and passionate about that's why so many some looking to Hungary, and to Poland because they are looking for new place, cool home and the same with our Jewish friends in Paris. A many many of them are just making it up commit to now on it leaving Paris because they they've received letters. Is telling them that they will be killed if they stay that was just last week. I mean, look this sounds the sounds like crazy incendiary talk, except I know what you're saying is true, antisemitism in Paris is a huge issue. I can't believe that. I've lived long enough to say such a thing that it's true. And it's really I call, you know, I'm just I am just a mom. I've got three kids that fourteen thirteen and ten at two girls and a boy. And so when I talk I I do mostly just from the perspective of of a moment. Get lots of emails from other moms and dads, and of course, for Jewish people. Just come back from Israel, speaking, Jewish families from Paris you've had to move. I'm Betsy now, you've got grandparents in Israel that moved from Paris buying apartments in the hope that the children will come and one of them just sediment, and it gives me the shivers again, she said, you know, the opposite. During the holocaust the optimists of the one who in outfit. Now in LA with a swimming pool rather being that she's urging her children in Paris, not to leave it too late to leave the real and visceral. And if I could take better I would. But that's what's going on right now a fraud Jewish. I just want to say to be clear for my listeners who don't know me, or maybe they don't know you. We're not talking about hating immigrants, or you know, when when you said white people, the dish to be clear there a couple of issues here one is culture. And that's of course, a very complicated issue. What is culture, and you know, does anybody have a right to their culture to keep their culture. It's very complicated. But what you're saying, you're not simply talking about religion or anything you're talking about culture and people who had a culture and a world that is is going away. And I think the bigger issue. We're going to go to a break here. But the bigger issue is that the leaders their leaders, their political leaders haven't thought about those people, and that's to me the the worst of it when we come back more with Katie Hopkins. The book is rude. You can follow her on Twitter Katie Hopkins. Alvin I.
