"Loop to recap. Bitcoin will continue to gain worldwide adoption because of its effectiveness digital gold but hidden within the prize. Trojan horses a remarkable freedom technology. At this point the reader may think bitcoin proponents must be saying quite in the back. Keep the noise down. We just need to last a few more hours until midnight. And then we can pop ourselves out of this horse. Let the rest of our army and detroit but it is already too late. There's nothing the trojans can do. Authoritarian regimes will inevitably want to stack sats. Some already have found. Bitcoin is a helpful tool to escape sanctions including venezuela iran and north korea. But over time the officials tasked with storing and spending the bitcoin will learn what it is money.

These words will fall on deaf ears. The prize glitters to brightly. All right so back to l w again for just a second. I think the context is obvious here but just to spell it out a little bit more. We have on the one hand all over the world this massive rise in interest in central bank digital currencies. And there's a ton of reasons for that. The old system of the way that money moves around the world is well old. It's tired it's slow. It's not any of the things any of the benefits that a truly digital system could have. Cd's are a likely inevitable evolution of cash and fiat money and not just because they improve convenience in the system there will also be more tools than ever before for central banks to tweak monetary policy to change it on a person by person level. Cdc's will also bring with them more opportunity than ever before for financial surveillance this'll be instituted and implemented in the name of am l. kyc regimes and fighting crime. The net effect is that governments are going to know a lot more about their citizens financial behaviors than ever before including free and open societies. When alex glad seen talks about the remarkable and surprising nature of president bu kelley's decision to implement bitcoin rather than some. Cdc see this is what he's talking about. The authoritarians playbook wants more control. Not less control over monetary systems. He wants more visibility not less visibility into what citizens are doing now. Someone decided that the direction that bouquet on is firmly set others will completely right off these moves as someone who's just cleaning house from an old corrupt regime. Those who find themselves open to the possibility of many future outcomes for president do kelly will note with interest this particular decision and will cheer. I think that even if this decision was not an intentional push towards a more free and open society. It will likely have that effect regardless anyways guys. I hope you had an amazing weekend. Has been such a wild week in bitcoin history. I appreciate you hanging out. I appreciate you listening until tomorrow. Be safe and take care of each other piece..

Why Amber Ruffin Is Late-Night Comedy's Trojan Horse
"I never gave late night. One half of an ounce of thought because it just never occurred to me that that might become available to me ever because it wasn't even like there were different kinds of white guys old. That voice belongs to the very talented amber ruffin. Before becoming a host herself of the amber ruffin show on the streaming service peacock amber was a writer and performer. On seth. Meyer's late night. Show on nbc. The first black female late night rider for a network late night. Talk show right. Yeah oh a lot to make me. But i i think it and now in her own late night entry the amber ruffin show on the peacock streaming service embers ascension is a development both hugely welcome and stupefyingly late in the game as recently as twenty fifteen a talented young woman. A talented young black woman pondering her career options did not think about. Maybe taking a shot at getting into big time network late night. Tv because looking around at what was on every screen she happened to take in. She saw nobody who looked like her both as a woman and a person of color and she was right. Maybe the least diverse of our lives. So i never thought okay. There will be some room for me here. Not not ever the history of late night. Television is filled with great stars. Big laughs and tons of memorable moments virtually all of them associated with white men. There have been exceptions. But any analysis of the american genre known as late night tv would have to conclude it has been limb different from most other american cultural genres until recently.

Nicole Perlroth On The Cyberweapons Arms Race
"Nicole peril roth on the cyber weapons arms race nicole statement at the end of your book which is a pretty serious indictment of the us government. That i think sums up the thesis of the book you say quote the very institutions charged with keeping us safe have opted time and time again to lead us more vulnerable unquote it. You explain with that means and just tell us what the books about shore. So what that means is that. In order to preserve our espionage operations are battlefield preparations in the digital realm. It necessitates these days. This tradeoff that basically entails leaving americans more vulnerable when you find a hole in the system and you decide that you can use that whole to spy on our enemies or drop a cyber weapon on their grid. One day there was no problem with that three or four decades ago when we were all using different systems but these days we all use the same systems. We all use iphones and androids and microsoft windows whether you know it or not and siemens industrial software and schneider. Electric industrial software. Were all using it for our critical infrastructure. So if you find a whole no systems and you decide that you're not going to get it fixed so that you might able to exploit at one day for espionage or surveillance or a gun. Cyberattack you are leaving americans more vulnerable these days and when i wrote that sentence i wasn't even just talking about the nsa or command or or some of our other spy agencies. I was really talking about the entire system. You know microsoft. They've come a long way but it is holes in their products in their technology. That just able this. Latest chinese attack on our systems solar winds that did not catch the fact that the russians were essentially using it software update as a trojan horse to get into our federal. It networks you know. No one is incentivized to seriously look at security. They are incentivized to get their product to market to cut costs to keep shipping and government. They're incentivized to spy on as many people as possible in the name of protecting americans but the problem is we have this moral hazard in this trade off now where it effectively left a lot of americans less safe so that that is the nut of the buck i really wanted to explore. The is incentive structures. I wanted to look at this because from my vantage point. I've been covering nonstop cyber-attacks the new york times and you know ten years ago. When i started. I could cover one attack every week or every other week but steady getting a little bit worse now. They're all happening simultaneously from so many corners of the globe and they are so costly. Not just for american businesses and government. They're costly for hospitals. There was just a a ransomware attack on a hospital that costs the hospital. Ten million dollars and an american cities and towns so remind vantage point things. Were getting a lot worse. And we had no interest in legislating that critical infrastructure operators up their security. We had no interest in exacting penalties for companies. That didn't take their security seriously. So i really just wanted to look at the incentive structures if going to rely on our free market economy to sort of dictate the terms of our security. I wanted to understand what those incentives were and if there was any opportunities to correct
Biden intent on selling benefits of virus aid plan to public
"President Biden is hailing final approval of a massive coronavirus relief bill the house has signed off on the one point nine trillion dollar package sending it to the White House everything in American rescue plan addresses a real need including boosting the vaccination and testing programs and helping struggling Americans whether the pandemic's economic destruction while the bill had nearly unanimous democratic support no Republicans voted for it with Texas is Jody Arrington among others blasting it as less of a relief bill and more of a democratic wish list of things unrelated to the pandemic it's a two trillion dollar blue state boondoggle and a Trojan horse for their reckless partisan policies it'll become law once the president signs it Friday Sager Matt Donny Washington
A Conversation between Tara Brach and Elizabeth Lesser
"Elizabeth. We are so delighted to have you with us. Thank you thank you thanks. It's a pleasure thank you. Hello everybody from all over the place. It's lovely to be with you. Yes i wanna jump right in to do your new book because i fall. We get grabbed by the tidal. Cassandra speaks can you just have to come up with that title. Who is cassandra. Let's just start writing with that. Well i've always loved mythology and religious texts. You know. I just love reading whether it's the bible or the koran or the buddhist texts or the hindu texts. I've just always just because humans learn through stories. that's how we learn. So i've been fascinated with stories and i didn't take me long to notice even way back in college that wow most of the books we love. Heroes tales the parables the myths they're written untold by men because back in the day. Ps also a lot now. The storytellers were men. And there's nothing wrong. With the stories. Men tell and the values men tell their stories from but a big swath of humanity was left out of the storytelling so when packing Reading reinterpreting everything. From adam and eve to chinese stories to the greek myths and as i was writing and i was writing about one of the greek town. The tale of cassandra we were in the midst of the metoo movement. Now i know that seems maybe like ancient history. Now we've all been through so much but really it was just like a year and a half ago and one night. I was watching television on. I was watching the televised trial of those young girls who had been molested by their doctor. Dr larry nassar and the judge in rare way of dealing with the trial. First of all allowed it to be televised and allowed one hundred twenty five girls to tell their story in front of the cameras with dr nassar sitting there and for years and years thirty years he'd been at it for years and years. These young women most of whom were olympic athletes had told their mothers had told their parents had told their coaches that college coaches the us olympic team coaches. They've told them that this man had been molesting them but no one believed them. And i was reading the story of cassandra. At the time. Cassandra was a princess. She was the most beautiful princess of the king of troy and troy was an ancient city. That was often at war with greece and she was so beautiful in lowering all the men wanted to marry her including the gods apollo. The son of zeus wanted to marry her. Zeus wanted to marry her and apollo offered her a gift. The gift of being clairvoyant. That she could be able to see into the future. She would see what was going to happen to her family. And her countrymen and her world and she wanted that She's very spiritual person she she wanted to be able to see into understand so she accepted the gift but he neglected to say that she would have to have sex with him right away after she got the gift but she didn't want to and he was furious so as the story goes he spat in her mouth in put a curse on her. Cassandra you will be clervoy int- but no one will believe you. And for years. She saw what was coming. She saw the war. She saw the trojan horse. She saw her brother's all dead. She saw her city in ruins and she would say it but no one would believe her. So as i was watching these young women. I thought they are cassandra's. They are telling their truth their experience but this time they're being believed and i thought that's what i want this book to be about changing the way the old story ends so it doesn't end with women not being heard women not being believed so that we had meant to who knows their inner feminine. So that finally. We respect that part of ourselves so deeply. It's really this part. That i was leading in the meditation and we get so much clout in musculature. That are stories begin to matter an actually change what it means to be human

It's telling me I can save up to twenty two point eight gigabytes by reviewing my lodge attachments but I don't know what that means like. I have messages in the cloud on. And then when I go to review the attachments, it's like I have to manually delete videos one by one with very seems very strange to me So I, don't Know. What's going on here but it's It's not a good scene, right like I've got multiple gigabytes taken up an APPs and then the moment forty seven gigabytes is quote other system data. Whatever that means so they go adds up quick. And sure does maybe should have gotten a bigger I mean why I mean I? For what I was installing, which is basically what I put on. It was a bunch of applications that don't download a bunch of data I just figured that would be fine like I wasn't planning on putting anything on it Everything's changing it in the moment, and now other was other is now thirty nine gigabytes of information and I have eight gigabytes, which is messages but that eight gigabytes of messages is just what the system is choosing to store because I have messages in the cloud ton don so yeah. Basically all of this is a long long way of saying again. Sixty four GIGABYTES is the new sixteen gigabytes. It doesn't work in today's world. The we do with way more day to just typical live.

How bad are things right now with the violence in the streets, the riots, all that sort of stuff I mean I've I've read about the sixties but I'm not old enough to have lived through it. Does it compare? Is it a half? Is Man? In the sixties they did not well okay. Let's go to Newark in Newark. Newark was once a thriving beautiful middle class community. Do, we know what happened in Newark during the riots they burned their own city to the ground Newark never really recovered from that. And if this keeps up these cities that are being decimated by the Social Justice Warriors, did you see how many stories have come out about them being? Children of wealthy families, girls, these brainwash sorority girls, right towns in their burning down minority owned businesses. I'm not surprised by that they've been brainwashed by their own parents, their own schools since childhood most of them are drug addicts they were raised either unreal in in the old days or at a role they are stone hard hearted drug drug addicts who are brainwashed. They don't even know what the hell they're doing but let's go back in history again, we don't have the time but. Karl Marx came from wealthy clan a home.

Could a digital 'New Deal' rewrite tech policy?
"At this point consumers, tech employees, even the CEOS of some big tech companies say there should be more regulation around privacy advertising and even disinformation. But what might that regulation look like the think tank? The German Marshall Fund is for an initiative called the digital new deal. It contains a bunch of policy proposals that would ideally create more transparency into how tech companies operate and questioned the incentives that pushed this information. Can Corn Blue is director of the Digital Innovation and Democracy Initiative at the German Marshall Fund. So one of the specific proposals we have on that front is a circuit breaker that they have for high-speed trading on Wall Street where when things get too heated and are spreading too quickly the platforms have to take a pause and take a look and see if it violates our terms of service. They didn't do this with a video that was spreading conspiracy theories about how dangerous masks are who's spreading Cova. called. America's frontline doctors. It was seen by twenty million separate views on facebook before they realized they had to shut it down. That's interesting because you know. So much of this has been built on the idea that Barack. Is Good that something going by real as good and so you're saying that these platforms should start to change their thinking so that when something's going viral They are alarmed. Yeah I. Mean I think we've all taken another look at that word viral lately. Can Be bad and but viral viral can be good for platforms because it means that people are excited and they're staying online, and that means that the platforms can show you ads and that's how they make money. So they're incentives differ from our incentives, which is that we want to critically examined that piece of content that's coming across our desk before we share it with our unwitting grandmother may take action based on it. How what is the reception to the idea of this level of regulation? Obviously, the company's. Clear even from mark, Zuckerberg's interview just this week. that. They don't agree you know he talked about anthrax and that he doesn't want to suppress speech about vaccine skepticism. But if you look at social media messages urging Americans to re reject vaccines, it's tripled just since the pandemic has begun and again he's focused on the content and not enough on the systems. That create the opportunity for conspiracy theorists to play the algorithm or a bunch of groups to promote act anti vaccine, and that's because he doesn't. He doesn't have the incentive you know the car companies, they may have resisted seatbelts or airbags fuel-efficiency. But then once the policies were put in place, they turned on the innovation and they figured out how they could still make money but also keep people safe a lot of the time you know the pushback argument for not regulating social media platforms, for example, as free speech, but it's also based on this idea that like. Disinformation is just as old as time people people. You know that's what people do they argue or they try to convince each other in one direction or the other but it seems like increasingly we're realizing that the platforms themselves not only is there an incentive for them to serve this content? But they exist as an incentive to create it like there's money to be made influencers are selling March? Yeah. I'm so glad you asked that that's absolutely right and a lot of people miss that that if I'm if I have an outlet, one of these, we call them Trojan horse outlets that pretend to be news outlets better just repackaging old rumors and making them look like news or if you're one of these carnival barker pages that that tries to get people's attention on those outlets. if you get enough eyeballs the platforms serve up ads and you get some of that money if you're a youtube channel that spews out a lot of disinformation. So people come to you. You can wind up with revenue sharing from the platform. So absolutely, and then there are a bunch of people that flat out sell fraudulent products as part of this disinformation scheme. So they may say you know here's here's something that works better than a mask to cure Kovic and buy it here. Here's something that will get you rich quickly. So there is an entire financial. Ecosystem that supporting this disinformation. So in a way, it's not like the platforms. Just amplify and themselves profit from disinformation they create an incentive cycle. And of financial encouragement for people to create and spread disinformation. That's absolutely right and the one other thing that I would add to that I mean that's really true and the Federal Trade Commission has started to do work in this, but they could use a lot more expertise a lot more authority and a lot more resources to to go after this kind of activity and the other thing that I would say to add to your question about. Aren't people just going to spread rumors is that one of the things that makes the Internet more effective spreading rumors is this information laundering so that people don't know where the information is coming from. It looks like it's coming from a reputable news organization. It looks like it's coming from a neighbor because people aren't aware and the platforms aren't transparent enough. So. A big part of this could be handled with transparency, which is very free speech. Friendly. That's Karen Corn Blue With the German Marshall Fund think-tank.
Pence Accepts GOP Nomination While Praising Trump, Slamming Biden
"Vice President Mike Pence's is turned to speak on the third night of the GOP convention as we talked about last night on the show law and order has been a central theme for the campaign pence hit that hard as expected, and also embraced the traditional vp duties of praising the boss and attacking the Challenger. The WSJ's John McCormack gives us the key takeaways big. Speaker of course was vice president pants I. Mean He really delivered pretty strong speech making the case that while president trump has been a colorful figure in an opinionated figure in the White House at, he's actually managed to get some things done and pence went through a long litany of what this administration views. Its accomplishments I've had the privilege to work closely with our present. I've seen him when the cameras are off. Americans see president trump in lots of different ways. But there's no. Doubt. How President Trump sees America. He sees America, for what it is. A nation that has done more good in this world than any other. A nation that deserves far more gratitude than grievance. And if you want a president. Who Falls silent when our heritage is demeaned or insulted he's not your man. He also tried to present Joe Biden as a real tool of the left calling Trojan horse at one point. That's a that's a phrase that the trump campaign is used extensively and they really want to try to present Biden somebody who? Hasn't fought back against what they call. The radical left is more liberal than. The Biden campaign would care to let on Joe Biden would double down on the very policies that are leading. To violence in America's cities. The hard truth is. You won't be safe in Joe. Biden's America. And under president trump. We will always stand with those who stand on the thin Blue Line and we're not going to de-fund police not now not ever. We also heard from outgoing presidential adviser, Kellyanne, Conway she and other female speakers from the White House defended the president's treatment of women arguing that he supported their careers tonight president trump will give his big speech. You can stream it live on wsj.com. Noticeably missing from this convention, some of the highest profile elected officials from past and present. It's a reflection of sweeping change in the Republican Party under president trump for more on the shifting identity of the GOP joined by White House reporter Alex Leary Alex, great to talk to You my pleasure. Alex the convention seems like a good place to start because symbolically, we're not seeing people like George W Bush or Mitt Romney give a speech how his president trump shape the party during his four years. Yes. This is one hundred percent trump's party. At the moment he is shaped at very much in his own mold. For example, on foreign policy on trade and other issues it is now the trump version of the GOP versus those past figures that you mentioned and from a message standpoint how has he changed the party identity and platform? It's a lot more populous. It's a lot more focused on the average person of spoke to Lindsey Graham for our story who said that the GOP and Mitt Romney, the twenty twelve nominee sort of resembled the country club set the swirling banker next door. President trump has made it much more of a working class focus with his populist policies. And how has he done that? Is it through his social media is it through his television appearances? How has he made that maneuver? He started through all that he's a very dominant interesting figure that has captured the imagination of people. Both critics and fans alike and president trump knows how to use the system to his advantage and to get his voice out there it all comes down to the base. The people who elected him That is the strength of of how you get elected and. People lawmakers, etc. No. That and if they wanted you know if they WANNA stay in office they're going to have to adhere to that message into to the party base. Let's look ahead to the future just a little bit. If we see a second term will the Republican Party stay status quo or is more chain evitable I think there will more change is Inevitable, the president trump will continue to put his stamp on things. For example, he is increasingly used a lot of executive order really stressing the the powers of his office, which is something that Republicans in the past had sort of been wary of. We'd see things like that. We probably see more protectionist prayed trade policies and maybe even more of a withdrawal. Of the US from the world stage on foreign policy art. Let's talk about another scenario. If the Democrats win the White House will this inevitably be a time of self reflection for the Republicans and who they are moving forward or will the trump legacy has some stained power? It'll have staying power because of the base that we mentioned that you know the. Voting the voting blocks or very trump centric, and that's not going to change overnight but there will be a debate within the party about some of the past policies such as foreign policy trade in which way to go perhaps some figures WANNA. Go back to the way they were So yes, the there will be a debate and it could get pretty ugly.
Hope for Herpes Cure
"Nearly two thirds of us are infected with herpes simplex virus. So viruses, this week isn't an herpes causes cold sores causes genital disease, and it can also even occasionally caused Brian Infections. The virus is real headache to treat because the infection is lifelong. This is because it hides existing just as a piece of DNA inside nerve cells, it periodically reawakens to produce painful infectious skin blisters, nola drugs that can. Control these flare ups when they happen they can't remove the viral DNA. So the problem keeps on coming back now researchers in the US developed a pair of selective molecular scissors the contract down the rogue viral. DNA inside nerve cells and chop it up destroying the virus. So at least in experimental mice, it doesn't come back. Keith Jerem herpes is really sneaky that it actually established as a form of itself. That essentially goes into cells and then falls asleep and that virus lives in the neurons nerve cells in your body, and they can come once a year once a month once a week and cause lesions ulcers than anything else and all those strikes. We him don't do anything about that sleeping form of the virus. So effectively under the immune Radovan all the time it's dormant inside cells like that the immune system can't see it. So it just gets ignored. That's exactly right. The immune system controls at once it wakes up and starts making more copies of itself and they take care of those new copies but they even the noon system doesn't do anything about that long-term sleeping form of the virus said, what can you do about it? Well we've been using this really cool technology that's been around for over a decade. Now called gene editing despite has made a DNA just like our body is and that sleeping form is actually a little tiny circle of this DNA that lives in the nerve cells and what gene editing allows us to do is basically use I think of molecular scissors that can go into a cell and they can look through all. The DNA. In that cell and look for a very specific little stretch of the letters, and if they find those letters, they make a little cut and so what we do is designed very special scissors that ignore all of our own DNA, all the human DNA but they look really hard for herpes and if they find it, then it to little cuts and so it basically falls apart and makes it go away. And this works does it you can actually demonstrate that serve you chop up the virus then canola comeback yeah, exactly. So the study that we did was in mice mice get this sleeping form of the herpes just like we do and then we can go in and we use a a something. We call a vector, a different virus that carries these scissors to those same neurons and when it does that it starts cutting up the virus and then we can measure after. Our therapy how much of that sleeping form is actually left in the mice treated and what we saw as we eliminated well over ninety percent of that virus, and if we could translate that into human beings is likely to prevent lesions in Alzheimer's disease transmission to other people and all the things that we actually worry about how did you get the virus that was the Trojan horse that carried in the molecular scissors? How did you get that into the nerve cells in these animals? Well. That was a really important part of our study is understanding the best way to get the scissors where they need to be. We used another virus added. Associated Virus. Almost, all have it never causes any disease. We basically changed that to carry these scissors for us just injected into the bloodstream, and once it's in the blood, it actually goes in and actually find those nerve cells and introduces the scissors. It sounds like the woman who swallowed a fly and then swallowed spider to eat the flying, and we all know how that story ends because you're basically giving someone a virus to treat viruses this safe. This particular virus specter that was used called ADN. Associated Virus is probably the leading factor that's being used for many many types of gene therapy now, and there's several approved products out there in the EU and the United States that use adn associated virus or av to deliver different types of gene therapy, and so we're taking something that's quite proven to be safe modifying it slightly for our needs and then using it to try to cure an infection where we've simply not had any hope for cure in the past. You've been looking at herpes simplex virus. This causes cold sores and it also causes genital disease. But this is one member of a big family viruses that'll will work in a similar sort of way things like visa, the Vars, chickenpox and shingles in people unlucky enough to have that. Do you think you could prevent a person from succumbing to shingles by the same technique? The shingles virus actually goes into very similar nerve cells and acts a lot like herpes simplex, and so we can actually think about using the same therapy for that viruses. Well, we're also very actively looking at viruses that are similar but not herpes viruses in particular hepatitis B., and we have some really exciting results there where we can do very similar things. We're likely to see success there and maybe another viruses as well.

Hiroshima survivors worry that world will forget
"Exactly 15 minutes past eight in the morning on August 6th, 1945 Japanese time at the moment when the atomic bomb flashed above Hiroshi MMA Miss Yoshiko Sasaki, a clerk in the personnel department of the East Asia, 10 Works had just sat down at her place in the plant office and was turning her head to speak to the girl at the next desk. That rather ordinary sentence is the opening to the extraordinary August 1946 New Yorker article titled Oshima. It was published a year after the United States dropped the first nuclear bomb on that city, a year in which the U. S government had gone to great lengths to conceal the human devastation caused And to depict the bomb as a conventional humane weapon. The writer of the Peace John Hursey, uncovered a very different story reporting on the ground in Japan, author and journalist Leslie Bloome chronicles foresees work and the reaction to it in her new book, Fallout. She joins me now from Los Angeles. Leslie Bloome. Welcome. Thank you. Start with Who? John Hursey Wass and how he came to be the one to tell this story. Oh, John. Her see was a young World War two correspondent who had covered action in different theaters throughout the war for Time magazine. And like many war correspondents, then he was pretty supportive of the U. S military. And he even wrote an almost overly complimentary wartime bio of General Douglas MacArthur and That the U. S military knew him entrusted him would be an important factor in my story and how he eventually got his story about Hiroshi MMA, and I don't want to give away too much. But I will say that how he got in was by being the perfect Trojan horse reporter, The perfect Trojan horse reporter. You've hooked us where we're intrigued when I got there. He didn't report this out as a war correspondent. He focused very much on ordinary people on he picked six of them. Why did he want to tell the story in that way? Well, I mean, the fact of the matter is is that the bombing of Hiroshima was widely reported when it happened, and it was reported as a very big end of days. Story mean there were pictures of the mushroom clouds that were released in pictures, the landscape devastation. But there were no pictures that were released or no stories that were released about the human toll that it happened on the ground there, and the government was really going to enormous lengths to cover up the reality of theater. Tomic aftermath in Hiroshima, Nagasaki They were very concerned with as the former secretary of war, put it, not being seen as having outdone, Hitler and atrocities. So her C and his editors at the New Yorker magazine became determined to tell the story from the point of view of survivors. You know, these are among the on ly humans who have ever experience what it's like to be on the receiving end of nuclear attack. He ultimately picked a widow with young kids, a young female clerk to medics, a priest and a minister with with a young family, and his idea was to create a sense of empathy. In his readers with these individuals, because, after all, not everybody could understand the physics of how the bombs works or visualized. You know, an all out nuclear attack that anyone could relate to being a mother or a father or colleague or doctor who's going about their everyday business. One catastrophe strikes I wonder if you would give us a sense of just one telling story of what he did find when he was there What it was that so shocked American readers who had no idea what was unfolding in Japan. One story that particularly resonated with him. He interviewed a young female clerk who was in her company when the bomb was detonated. This's the clerk I mentioned in the intro exactly one of the most famous introductions in journalistic history, and when the bomb exploded over her factory bookshelves fell upon her, and she was nearly crushed to death by books. And he thought How ironic it was to have somebody nearly crushed by books within the first moments of the atomic age, and literally when he was leaving here, Oshima and standing on the surprisingly intact train station platform, he thought that he was going to have to write about that line. And that's one of the incidents that most resonated with readers. So August 1946 The New Yorker publishes. What was the reaction? Both in the United States and around the world to this story. Well in her sees own words. The reaction was quote explosive mean, I try not to use that word in my book for obvious reasons. But he did, And the article was simply titled here, Oshima, and it comprised nearly the entire contents of the August 31st 1946 issue of The New Yorker. It's sold out immediately. You're even black market copies of it going for, you know, astronomical sums. It was syndicated in its entirety, and this is a 30,000 word story in newspapers across the country and around the world. And editors and reporters and readers were enraged. They were horrified by the testimonies in her sees here, Oshima, and they also began demanding to know what else was the U. S government withholding from the US public And then, when President Truman was asked by a reporter if he had personally read it, he retorted. I never read the New York ER. It just makes me bad. But the fact is, is that the government had been put very much on the defensive.
