A highlight from OUTCAST by Gloria Giorno
"Seek and Destroy that has been the theme of discussions of truth now for well I'm in my seventh season here and we started the show on Wynwood radio in Miami 2016 is when I agreed to do the show with them aired the first episode January of 2017 this is Ian Trottier here and today we are going to start talking if you are not familiar with the name Charlotte Iserbit she passed away about a year and a half ago she's a former advisor to the Department of Education under Ronald Reagan her story is very interesting and captivating because she talks about having received a list of these Skull and Bones members via mail that was sent to her father who was a Skull and Bones member at Yale and Anthony Sutton was hot on that trail so two names that you should familiarize yourself with and that is Charlotte Charlotte's work and that is the deliberate dumbing down of America she talks about the invasion of the American education system and that having been formalized under Jimmy Carter back in 1979 Department of Education so she talks about that through her book and then also what I was talking about was Anthony Sutton calling her being hot basically on the trail of dissecting the corruption that is it's really manipulation because Ella Hugh Yale was a major stockholder a main president of the British East Indies trading company that is a Rothschild controlled trading company and the Rothschild funded the American Revolution so I may be off here ladies and gentlemen but if you look at the flag that was flown above the John Paul Jones excuse me the USS Alfred commandeered by John Paul Jones on the Delaware that basically started the American Revolution that flag is basically identical to the British East Indies company flag and then that you trace that and you go back to Cambridge Massachusetts and something called the flag committee which is Continental Congress approved Washington Franklin adopted what became the first flag of the United what became known as the United States and that was the US Grand Union flag which as being designed by Betsy Ross that is the US Grand Union flag which is identical to the British East Indies company flag because that is where the financing came to fund Washington's army and then you ask well wait a second that's English and well yeah this it is English but it's not English because London the city of London is not technically part of England it is its own banking it's sovereign nation a Roman banking colony still in existence these are all facts and you can cross -check them but anyway so seek and destroy corruption that is how I that is that is how I theme my discussions my conversations my talks it's what I do in Trottier with discussions truth today we're gonna talk about the Department of Education rather the state of the education system in the United States so quickly before we bring the guests on we'll be we'll be talking to Gloria Giorno and her son Stevie and getting their view as conservatives what it's been like for Stevie to go through I think it's Belmont University as a conservative so without further ado thanks for tuning in for the podcast on and we're bringing on Gloria and Stevie right now calling Laurie and Stevie this is Ian Trottier for Discussions of Truth Gloria hi nice to meet meet you and welcome to Discussions of Truth I've looked at some of the work that you're you've excellent hi Stevie so thanks for for joining the the the show and please give listeners an introduction to who you are Gloria you can start tell listeners who you are what you what you do and then and then Stevie you can do the same please I try to destroy a young conservative and I also did a nonprofit the name of it is United Women Foundation what we do is mentor employ aid and young conservative women who are in Stevie's situation and we also give out scholarships to conservatives who are not in need of a scholarship but who are conservatives and who are promoting the conservative agenda in their lives thank you Gloria and that's United Women Foundation calm I'll go ahead and put a link to that in the episode Stevie go ahead and introduce yourself for us please well thank you very much for having us on my name is Stevie Giorno and I serve as the chairman of the Tennessee Young Republicans and I am the former student body president at Belmont University where I was attacked by the radical left for being proud of my country and being proud to be an American on the 4th of July in 2020 during the as a mother for protecting your your family and your country I've looked at the website I've looked a little bit about both of you and what's interesting is you have been you've come my way and your stories come my way through a contact there in Florida and your Stevie your story is daughter went through something very similar and in her university classes but Stevie go ahead and tell us a little bit about about what you experienced you were the student body president at Belmont University yet you were attacked for your political views isn't that right picture of myself in front of the White House and I captioned it that I was proud to be an American and I thanked those who had sacrificed and served so that we may have the freedoms and liberties that our forefathers intended for us and within 24 hours my fraternity was blackmailing me threatening to label me a racist and remove me from the fraternity there were hundreds of comments on my Instagram post and there were hundreds of signatures on a change .org petition that sought to remove me as the duly elected student body president even though I was elected unanimously with almost 99 98 % of the vote and so it was really bad that students friends of mine my fraternity brothers wanted to attack me because I was proud to be from this country you know my grandparents escaped from communism in Yugoslavia and my mother lived there for a year so I've heard the first -hand horrors of what happens in a communist country and I fear that our country is headed that way every single day. Now what's interesting is one of the articles that I that I went through briefly was is written by Campus Reform it's published on an online newsletter called Campus Reform and one of the stories that they have today actually talks about glorifying Che you Guevara know this is a this is a socialist figure that that helped with the with the cubist Cuban communist revolution and Fidel Castro you're you're talking about your family having come from communist Yugoslavia are you seeing are you seeing Stevie in in in in your experience on on campus now I don't know what you're doing now maybe you graduated you can bring us up to date with where you at right now but are you seeing some of these same the same signs that that perhaps your mother or your grandparents were talking about that were that were red flags for for communism growing within the country are you seeing that experiencing that I do and I think unfortunately it is getting worse specifically at Belmont University they refused the school is refusing to allow a turning point USA chapter on campus I think it it's it's it's awful it's an infringement on our First Amendment right to freedom of speech and freedom of belief to protest to assemble and so it's really unfortunate what's going on with with colleges and universities I graduated in the spring of 2021 but I have heard of the horror stories happening at private Christian schools so -called Christian schools happening across the country and until students and parents and grandparents begin to see what is happening you know the first step to solving a problem is acknowledging it exists and it's there and it's not going to get better until enough conservative students and parents realize that they need to stop funding the indoctrination machines of universities and change course well it's very brave of you to say that glory I want want to get your your view and and and I want to first first say this I opened this show up before I brought you on with talking about somebody named Charlotte Iserbyt and I'm happy to send you her link to her book it's called the deliberate dumbing down of America what she did was she started dissecting what was happening under the Reagan administration with the attack on the indoctrination that we're seeing fruits of today a few decades later but Gloria did you did you ever expect or suspect that something like this might happen to your son I I he gets into college were there any anything anything happening up to that time where he's now the student body president of Belmont University anything before that that you were that you questioned well you know hey they he might he might need to defend himself or was this a complete surprise to you it was a complete surprise there was absolutely nothing the handbook the literature the online documentation about Belmont University everything fit a conservative Christian agenda there was nothing I mean personally I think it's a bait and switch but there was absolutely nothing I was friends with some of the professors who are conservatives at Belmont or who were conservatives at Belmont and we had spoken for two years before Stevie made the decision to go there and no there was not any kind of indication that anything like this would happen now we would never allowed our son to want to go to a school where he would have been threatened for his beliefs I mean he had been working for Republican candidates since he was 17 years old so it was out in the open it's on his LinkedIn it's public so no I mean we we were told on every tour we were told at every meeting that this was a fully free campus there would be no harassment it was Christian it was conservative and I read the handbook and Stevie followed all the guidelines when these things did start to occur he did follow all the guidelines he followed all the rules he turned everything into administration and they did nothing absolutely nothing and Stevie yeah go ahead to this day they have not responded in any way shape or form nothing and this has been three years now so you have not gotten a formal response from the school administration Stevie you're simply in DC taking a photograph outside the White House expressing your gratitude for the country and the values that it stands for did you ever suspect this type of backlash coming from the because he knew that if he spoke out against them that they would send him to a camp where he'd never be heard from again and really that whole year of 2020 was either you agree with everything we're saying you endorse the BLM organization but we're gonna do everything we can to destroy you and in fact because Tennessee is a single -party consent state that means you can record conversations with only one person knowing I did record those conversations with my fraternity which my mom put into her book and in those conversations my fellow friends my fraternity brothers say if you do not apologize for your post if you do not endorse this group we're gonna do whatever it takes to destroy you and your career and your reputation so it's a more mild form of what happens in communist countries but because these students were not held accountable it is only going to get worse and worse and it did I mean there was one instance where a female student who worked at a fast -food restaurant I would go to for my breakfast in the mornings she admitted in the official College Democrat group text that she was putting quote gross stuff in my drinks every single day because I was a an awful conservative who loved this country and one endorsed the BLM organization and the school guess what the school did when I turned her in what did they do they accepted her into Belmont law school you gotta be kidding me I'm serious 100 % she was rewarded for attacking a political opponent and I think that's dangerous as we see what's going on with President Trump he is being attacked because he's leading in the polls and it's truly unfortunate that we're becoming a banana republic yeah did the did she make you sick with whatever she put in the drinks and we couldn't even get the Nashville police who are unfortunately very short staff due to the liberal City Council and the liberal mayor at the time unfortunately they were they were unable to investigate it because I was perfectly fine thankfully but they said since there was no lasting issues that they refused to investigate and then the school accepted this girl into law school with full knowledge of everything she had done struck so it it shows the systemic problem we're having and imagine if this is happening in a conservative Christian private university in Nashville Tennessee one of the most conservative states imagine what's going on in all 49 other states we don't have the ability to record conversations and to take screenshots of texts and emails and and have such transparency I mean it's terrifying to think what's happening in these other colleges yeah very well said Stevie tell us about that book and tell us about how tell us about how it's been received my husband and I we want to speak out on this we want people to know I need parents and grandparents to know what their children and yes very teen but there still are children what they face and what they are up against when they go away to school we need for parents to fight back we need for parents to take a stand if 40 % of students stopped attending their respective universities you know that the agenda at universities with administration would change so we as conservatives we have that title of being silent majority because usually we are silent well Stevie and I wanted to change that hence the book I use I feel that the book is an educational tool for parents learn from what happened to my son learn from the experience that we've had we went to this university many times it's not far from our home we investigated it we knew people who worked there who taught there and never once did we feel that it was going to be a threat to our son and look what happened so whatever you're seeing I dread to think what's going on at public schools I just dread but I want parents to learn learn read the book you'll see everything is documented in there as my son said fortunately we're able to record and we're able to use everything for information but we need for parents to be more active in their students and their children's educations even when they are at college because they are all indoctrination facilities I did live in a communist country I went to first grade in Zagreb which was then Yugoslavia in 1972 and I can tell you that on my way to school my walk to school every morning I had 1 ,000 US dollars in my backpack I knew if civil unrest broke out at the age of six I knew how to get out of Yugoslavia get into a cab that was waiting for me at the end of the hill and that cab driver would take me to the border of Yugoslavia in Italy where one of my aunts would meet me and my parents would come when they were able I also knew the police officer on the corner he wasn't there for me he wasn't there to make sure that I'd be safe or anybody else he was definitely there to protect the communist regime and Josip Tito who was the dictator at the time and the parallels that I saw with what I experienced living in a communist country and what my son endured at Belmont University it's there if it's clear as day and I want to enlighten everyone who wants to hear from me I want all parents to know this is happening in our country now too we are being silenced and shut down the title of the book folks is outcast how the radical left tried to destroy a young conservative and that is Stevie so Stevie was this a the attack on you was this coming from the BLM movement at Belmont University or in Nashville have you identified the nucleus of where this attack came from okay so let me ask you a broader question we saw during the Trump Tifa uprisings mainly Seattle Portland but obviously across the country Chicago New York but that coincided with this this COVID -19 virus outbreak as a as a university student you've now graduated but Stevie were you were you drawing any parallels to either of these things happening during the Trump administration that seemingly linked to a communist revolt within the country does that making sense were you able to draw any connect any dots Stevie we know from history that it usually doesn't work that way and the government's gonna keep taking more and more of our rights and when you couple that with what is happening what did happen in 2020 with with the riots and people getting away with committing crimes to where if you and I or anyone else who was a conservative did burn down a courthouse like they did in Nashville or protest and kill innocent people in the streets we would go to jail however because they were advancing a political movement that the liberal district attorneys in big cities supported they were let go and they were not punished like they should have been like we would have been so the hypocrisy is terrible I think it does parallel communism to where you know if you remember the black shirts Mussolini's black shirts taking control of the Italian government because they were the advancing political agenda and movement that the powers that be wanted them to they were able to harass and intimidate people into supporting them and I fear that our country is going that way and we need people to stand up now if we're ever hoping to take back our country and get it back on the right track and under control Gloria the book is recently published it looks like it was just published last month and you've got us forward by Sam Sorbo how's the reception of the book been so far what are people saying who have you spoke to about it how is it being received lot Gloria a of media outlets that are reaching out to us I'm being asked to speak almost on a daily basis different organizations different groups Stevie and I have traveled to a lot of different states throughout the country and we will continue to be touring and we are I have started a conversation and parents are now extending that conversation with their friends and that is the goal we need to start with one person talking to another and now the growth has been exponential it's incredible the book is selling very well it's available on Amazon and wherever books are sold but from what I have witnessed and the calls I am getting yes it is and I mean if we as conservatives don't speak up we're gonna be done this is it and if America Falls there is nowhere else to go and our children are being indoctrinated I don't care what level of schooling it's that they're being indoctrinated on every single level and if parents do not set a strong foundation in the household when the child is born and continue that throughout a child's life when they go to college always we will not be America any longer so the book is being well received I do have parents who have reached out to me and who have asked me questions likewise I do have some haters but that's how I know I'm making a difference because the hate is there as well yeah absolutely well said it's like when you went once you're censored you know that you're putting up the correct information on the online right Stevie are you concentrating on any particular campuses as you tour the country you point of a Christian organization and unfortunately they they canceled the meeting that was going to happen at Belmont and so been trying to help the students out there at Belmont but really I think the key thing is getting in front of as many young people as possible who are conservative and letting them know that they're not alone that the hardships they're going through have happened before and they're gonna happen again and we've got to stand up tall for what we believe in and we can't be scared of people saying mean things about us or what people put on social media or what they may say to us we've got to stand up for what we believe in if there's any chance of saving our country thank you very much let me ask you this question Gloria as we as we wind down and then I want to give each of you an opportunity to leave listeners with some final words and thoughts but Gloria as somebody who's lived in a communist country and it sounded like you did at least one year schooling their first grade what's happening right now to the border of your country what's happening down there they believe they have freedom and to an extent they do and I equate it to when I speak I speak to a lot of young people because young people are what United Women Foundation is mostly about and so when I speak I they look at me very oddly when I tell my story but what I have found that works very well is I bring up a lion at a zoo and he's in a zoo he's caged his needs are met he has food he has shelter he has water he has medical attention and it's all for free but he is still in that cage but he is able to roam in that cage correct and then we have the next picture a lion picture lion in Wyoming in Montana anywhere in this country roaming freely that lion bends for himself he finds his own food he finds his own shelter he finds his own water he takes care of himself that lion is independent to me that is the difference that is the bottom line that is the difference between communism and America that is the difference between our constitution is that lion that is roaming free throughout this country and that's what we are right now so that is something that I think resonates with young people and I I believe that putting it in a perspective of a picture like that they are beginning to understand a little bit I hope at least I mean I don't know right now what I'm seeing is a lot of people have said we cannot have an opinion because we have not experienced it which truly breaks my heart my family in Croatia thinks that they are free in effect my family basically is a caged lion yeah incredible and and let me review what is happening right now at the southern border in in the U .S.
A highlight from Gad Saad (Encore)
"Welcome to The Eric Metaxas Show. Back again, eh? Glutton for punishment, eh? When will you ever learn? Now, here's the host that you hate to love, the man who was the reason your friend sponsored your last intervention, Eric Metaxas. Hey there, folks. Welcome to the program. It's always a joy to have someone on for the first time. I have heard such good things about today's guest. His name is Gad Saad. At least, I think that's how it's pronounced, or God Saad. G -A -D, first name, second name, S -A -A -D, Ph .D. He's one of the best -known public intellectuals fighting the tyranny of political correctness, so it sounds to me like he's interested in truth. He's professor of marketing at the John Molson School of Business at Concordia University, where he held the research chair in evolutionary behavioral sciences and Darwinian consumption. It goes on and on. It is just a joy to have Gad Saad as my guest. Welcome to the program, and congratulations on the new book. Thank you so much, sir. Such a pleasure to meet you. I've seen you on television before, so I feel as though I know you, but it's a pleasure to finally meet you. Well, that's very generous of you. So for my audience who isn't familiar with you, what is your background? I mean, you've been a voice for truth, which is a very rare thing, especially in a university setting. Where were you raised, and what is your background? How did you get to be who you are today? Sure. So I grew up in Lebanon. I was born in Lebanon. We were part of the last steadfastly refusing to leave Jews in Lebanon. Most of my extended family had left by the late 60s. They had left some to France, some to Canada, many to Israel, but my family had remained in Lebanon. We were well entrenched within Lebanese society. And then when the civil war broke out in 1975, when I was 10 years old, it became very, very difficult to be Jewish in Lebanon. So we experienced the first year of the civil war, and then luckily were able to leave. So that's my background in terms of where I was born. Grew up in Montreal, Canada, and then went to the United States to finish my studies, and then was a visiting professor at several universities in the US. But much of my career has been spent at a Canadian university, Montreal University. My general research area, just again for the folks who don't necessarily know who I am, evolutionary I marry psychology and evolutionary biology to human behavior in general, and consumer behavior in particular. What are the biological underpinnings that make us do the things that we do? So that's been my scientific work. But in the process of establishing my academic career, I started noticing that there was a second war that I was facing. The first war was the Lebanese civil war. The second war was the war on reality, the war on common sense, on reason, on evidence -based thinking. Which then led me to write my previous book, not the book that we'll be talking about today, but my previous book was called The Parasitic Mind, How Infectious Ideas Are Killing Common Sense. And so I've been one of the few voices in academia that holds no sacred cow to be untouchable. I critique any ideology that I feel like critiquing. Of course, it has made my academic career at times difficult, but you have to defend the truth. Well, you say you have to defend the truth, and I say you have to defend the truth. But many in the academy are not willing to defend the truth, nor even to defend the concept of truth. They don't seem to believe in the idea of truth the way Socrates did. They don't even seem to believe in defending reality, that there is a world, a real world, that there are things that are possible that are things that are impossible. I mean, that is kind of where we are today. So to believe in reality or truth in the academy is a rare thing indeed. And what do you suppose it is about you that made you willing to fight the battle for truth to not be silenced? Thank you. That's a great question. So I think it's just my personhood, the combination random of genes that make me who I am. Okay, now hold on. You're making it sound fatalistic. You're making it sound like it's not noble. It's just a fatalistic thing. It's just your genes are making you behave this way, just as Hitler's genes made him do what he did. That's clearly not what you're saying, is it? No, no. I mean, of course, I also have personal agency because I could say, hey, I'm going to succumb to cowardice and not rise up to the call to defend the truth. So you're right. So thank you for that. Maybe I was being falsely modest in my deterministic explanation, but in any case, I'm just, I mean, I'm a very, I think anybody who knows me knows that I'm a very warm, fun, affable guy, but I'm also very combative. Not because I want to be combative just to annoy people, but in a sense, I have this code of personal conduct, Eric, that makes it that when I go to bed at night and put my head on the pillow, for me to be able to not suffer from insomnia, I need to feel that I never modulated my words for pragmatic reasons, for careerist reasons. Then I would feel that I'm a fraud, that I'm a charlatan. And because of that exacting, punishing code of personal conduct, whenever I see nonsense, I attack it. Well, I'm just guessing, but having lived through what you and your family lived through in Lebanon, I mean, my father came to this country from Greece in the 50s. My mother came from East Germany in the 50s. And having stories, whether your own or those of your forebears, of people who saw that there were consequences to how one lived and that the world can be a very evil place, and that if you go along with it, you're complicit in the evil. I think many Americans and many Canadians haven't been forced to face that. They don't understand that there is a real battle for truth and that I have to be careful not to go along with things because then I am complicit. I'm just guessing that growing up in a home, as you did having left Lebanon under those circumstances, that that might be a part of why you're a brave voice in this culture. I think you're spot on. And if you look just anecdotally at some of the most vociferous defenders of Western traditions, they're exactly the type that you've mentioned. It's Ayaan Hirsi Ali, who is of Somali background. It's precisely because we have sampled from the large buffet of possible societies, right? We realize that the Western experience is an anomalous one. It's not the standard default society. That's not how humans have organized themselves. And so because we've sampled from that buffet, we come to the West and say, guys, be careful, you're not going down the right track. So I think you're exactly right, Eric. Yeah, I think, you know, anytime I meet somebody who has Cuban background or whatever, they typically, they get it. Somebody who's come from Romania or some Eastern Bloc country, they all get it. They all seem to understand, you know, we have to fight for what is right and true. We have to fight for freedom. These aren't normal. This is not the default situation. But many Americans and many people who've had the privilege of growing up in the West, they don't have a clue that what we have is a glorious, fragile thing. It's worth fighting for. Because you're new to the program, I do want you to talk about your book, The Parasitic Mind, before we talk about the brand new book. Tell us a little bit about that so my audience can understand where you're coming from. Sure. Thanks for that question. So in The Parasitic Mind, what I try to do is find some metaphor for why it is that living agents can engage in such maladaptive behaviors. And so I found it in what's called the neuroparasitological framework. The idea is that if you look at the animal kingdom, there are all sorts of parasitic infestations that happen. A tapeworm can infest your intestinal tract, but a neuroparasite is one that looks to, if you like, alter the neuronal circuitry of its host to suit its own reproductive interest. And so I had my epiphany, so I thought, well, okay, well, human beings can certainly be parasitized by actual physical brainworms, but there's another class of brainworms that they can be parasitized by. And I call those idea pathogens or parasitic ideas. So to your earlier point about, you know, in the academy, we no longer talk about some objective truth. Well, that's the granddaddy of all idea pathogens, postmodernism, social constructivism is another one. Radical feminism is another one. Identity politics is another one. Cultural relativism, biophobia, the fear of using biology to explain human behavior is another one. So what I do in the book is I trace the origin of many of these parasitic ideas and their downstream negative consequences. And then if I've done a good job, I offer a mind vaccine against these parasitic ideas. That's the general idea of the book. Okay, I wanna pick up on that. We are talking to GAD, G -A -D, SAD, S -A -A -D. And we'll be right back. I wear the black for those who've never read. Or listen.
A highlight from The poison salon with Rose Biggin
"At Breaking the Glass Slipper, we believe it is important to have conversations about women and issues of intersectional feminism within science fiction, fantasy and horror. To continue to do so, we need your help. Please consider supporting us on Patreon. Join the conversation by following us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. Hello and welcome to Breaking the Glass Slipper. I'm Lucy Hounsom. And I'm Megan Lee. In the preface to Les Fleurs du Mal, The Flowers of Evil, Baudelaire indicated that boredom is the truest suffering, and this idea later became central to the fin de siècle movement of the 1890s, an era of decadence in which artifice masqueraded as, or was even elevated to the status of, art. The Belladonna Invitation by Rose Biggin is a gothic exploration of the cult and cost of celebrity. It looks at the consequences of wealth, the ethical complexity of aestheticism, and ultimately asks the question, is celebrity or the mask of it worth dying for? We are extremely fortunate to have Rose with us on the show today. I loved this book, I devoured it in a couple of days. So I'm really keen to chat to Rose all about it. Would you like to introduce yourself to our listeners? Hi, I'm Rose Biggin. I'm a writer and a theatre maker based in London. I work between performance and I do a bit of dance and I do a bit of writing, short fiction and novels, often exploring things like art and artifice. So thank you for having me. As I said, I absolutely adored The Belladonna Invitation, which is out now from Ghost Orchid Press. It's a small press that's putting out some really exciting books at the moment. So I do urge everybody to just go and have a look at their titles. We're hoping to talk to some of their authors, other authors later in the year as well. Since you mentioned art and artifice, and I've mentioned also one of my favourite literary periods, the 1890s for the Fada Siekla, which is, yeah, it produced some really remarkable novels. But what I really liked in your book is this idea of death salons, this exclusive and expensive gathering where guests deliberately poison themselves. And I felt like that suggests that wealth directly enables the taking of absurd risks in pursuit of sensation. And this is horribly topical. I'm sure you know what I'm referring to at the moment, this having money and that leads directly to your doom. I wanted to dig into this idea of extreme wealth leading to a possible disregard for life itself. Yes. Well, the poison salons were something that came right at the start of the conceptualisation of the novel, before the idea was even novel sized. Maybe I could get to that later. But I immediately knew from the beginning about the dark, fin de siekla world that I wanted to set the story in, the main character, Bella Donna, her name, what she would do, the work she would do. This was all part of the texture of that world. I think the poison salon is the exclusive secret thing that she runs at the end of the official salons that just felt like a very interesting way to make those themes a bit tangible and a little bit tasty, I suppose, a sort of texture to the world. But I think something that interests me is that the character Bella Donna works in this world. She runs these salons and she takes on a very ambitious devotee apprentice and that's the perspective character. That's who we see the story, who we see the novel through in her eyes. Quite quickly, they get a little bit used to it. We have this glamorous showpiece thing she does, but what I was quite interested was showing the work that goes on beneath creating that kind of glamorous or that dangerous or that show -stopping event. They actually get a little bit used to it. It's central to what they do, but it's also part of the job. They run these things and the business and the practicalities of running these things, what it takes to uphold that glamorous edifice. We sort of see underneath that. There's a moment when the perspective character first learns about the poison salon because she doesn't walk in on day one. She's led up to experiencing it. She asks Bella Donna, I can't remember the exact quote, but why people come to this, why people do this. Bella Donna says, she words it a lot better than I would say it, but she says something like, she doesn't know why. It's either obvious or she's sure she doesn't want to know. We're at a little bit of distance from why people come to this. It's sort of a texture of that kind of world where we then see the relationship between the Bella Donna, who's this socialite, this mysterious character and her apprentices. They're working it through. I suppose equally, it's interesting to think that people do get blind drunk at parties and die from that. They take drugs. This perspective isn't one I don't have a particularly strong position about people doing high risk things to get a high. I'm quite liberal about that. It's just that I think the extremeness of the sort of poison berries and the way that is a combination of beauty and danger and the temptation of it feels like something. The Bella Donna is selling you that as an idea as well. The novel is kind of selling it to you as a reader. This is something someone's doing, but also her job is to sort of sell that it is particularly dangerous, particularly cool. That's part of her Fin de Sica celebrity and her glamour. Of course, after the apprentice character has done it once, she never wants to do it again. I think there's a relationship between this thing, this glamorous, decadent, dangerous thing, the poison salon, but part of the mystique of that and the upholding and the creation of the mystique of that is sort of where the book's territory really is. I love this exploration of the fact that they're very expensive. They're exclusive. Not anybody can just get into one of these poison salons. It just raises the idea of what I mentioned in the intro, this Baudelaire's saying that it's like the worst thing, the worst misery is boredom. Is that what happens when you have this extreme wealth and privilege that it's kind of horrible because the welfare state wasn't established in that period. There were tons of people who were living in abject poverty, scrabbling at life to try and keep on living. Then you've got this aristocratic class who was so wealthy that they are eating poison to try and get some kind of kick out of them. I think that that juxtaposition is that the whole moral question surrounding those ideas is so fascinating. But also, everyone knows not many people can get in. The exclusivity of it is, they talk about that. They know that's part of, you have to uphold. You have to uphold that. That's part of the fun. There is a huge consequence to, well, not just the poison salons themselves, but to the way that Belladonna behaves towards men who fall in love with her. It does force us to question the moral integrity of the world that she's constructed around herself. Was that something that was central also to you that you wanted to explore? It's a glamorous, beautiful world, but it comes at a huge cost to some people. Yeah, well, it's worth saying that the big, dramatic, jealous lover moment, I don't think it's a spoiler really because he comes in quite early. A guy appears, there's a sort of dramatic, jealous lover moment. The reason that happens, the reason we have that character, his name is Lucien, that is a trope that we have in culture and in these sorts of stories. The novel that is in the DNA of the Belladonna invitation is The Lady of the Camellias by Alexandre Dumas -Phew, the son of Alexandre Dumas -Phew, who wrote The Three Musketeers and so on. His son wrote a novel, The Lady of the Camellias, which was a big hit at the time. It was adapted for stage and it later turned into the opera. Verdi adapted the story for his opera, La Traviata, and that's where Moulin Rouge gets its plot from. Although The Lady of the Camellias isn't so well known now, it has quite an interesting cultural footprint. Some of the initial skeleton of this Belladonna character and the lover who comes in and how she deals with that is a trope that I was looking to try to rework in a new way. He has his big, dramatic, jealous moment and she deals with that in a way that she doesn't deal with it in the text that I was just referring to. What I wanted was to have the man arise, but the emphasis isn't really on how she navigates that romantic or that pseudo -romantic world, but how she navigates the pressures that she's under and how that impacts on her relationship with Flora, or F, the name of the apprentice that she takes on who's watching all this happen. The relationship with the lover and how that sort of goes and how that ends up is interesting for me because of how it impacts on the central relationship between the two women. I do want to talk about Belladonna a little bit more in a bit because I do feel like there's a Rebecca vibe to her. She's on every page, but I don't feel like we ever really can say that we know who she really is. However, you mentioned F or Flora and I was so intrigued by these two names that she's sometimes Flora and she's sometimes F. There's a mask in there too. Do you have to have a mask to enter this constructed world? Who is Flora? Yeah, it's very interesting. In a way, I tried to make it quite an intimate novel. In a way, although she's F or Flora and there are things we don't know about this mysterious figure, she's also the perspective character of the book and we're sort of under her skin quite literally at times. I tried to really bring bodily sensation and feel and intensity of mental into construction her how she's seeing the world. At the same time, she's sometimes F, sometimes Flora. That's not necessarily an explicit puzzle that can be solved. It's more done through feel. There isn't a secret why she's one or the other. It's more how I felt in the writing, which name it felt like she was the best living up to in the time and in the moment. It does change. I suppose it's how she feels, who she feels she is in that moment. If she's expanded to take that kind of Flora name, which Belladonna gives her as well, or is just a letter, just a kind of ghost making things happen. I think in art, particularly in some forms, songwriting for example, or certain types of writing, certain genres, there's quite a lot of value placed on perceived sincerity or honesty, authenticity we might say. I'd argue it's maybe not necessarily about the world of art or celebrity itself that's all about masks, but particularly it's about a psychological perspective on the layers that we tell ourselves. The narratives we tell ourselves and what we tell other people, multiple selves that exist inside of us. I suppose the point is you don't need to be the top of society, La Dame, Belladonna, to have secrets and to have a sense that there are multiple selves within you and who will you show yourself to be at any one moment to other people depending on. F is a thinker, she's a planner. She's kind of a bit of a schemer, although that sounds a little bit Del Boyish. It's much more like, how can I get what I want? What do I need to do? Who do I need to be to these people in order to get from A to B? I suppose that's sort of the psychological territory that we're in, really. I think it's also, F is on the surface, we think they're going to be an entry character for the reader, I suppose. Of course, they're the perspective character, they're the one we identify with, but she's also hiding from the reader a little bit as well. It's an invite, it's to have fun to enter this world where there is mystery, there are characters who know more than what they tell you. I suppose I've just tried to embody that quality as well as depicting it. I wanted that to be something that hopefully is tantalising to the reader in form as well as in content. It is very tantalising and I was intrigued by both characters, but I'm glad that now you've kind of introduced both of these principal women. I wanted to talk a little bit about the power dynamic between them because they come from different classes. Flora is basically a servant and Belladonna is dripping with diamonds. Why set up this particular power dynamic? Class is a particular issue here and the fact that Flora is a servant to someone who stands at the very top of the social ladder. The power dynamic and the basic power struggle between them was the whole reason to write the novel, to be honest. As I mentioned earlier, I alluded to Lady of the Camellias and I had an idea to do a kind of goth, poison -y version of that. We'll call her Belladonna, she'll wear the blackberries in her hair and that all came quite fully formed. It felt like an idea that could potentially make quite a creepy short story. Fine. The jealous lover arrives, she deals with him, the end. I didn't quite write it because somehow there was something missing. There wasn't quite a reason to write it. It didn't feel like I had everything that I needed. There was a point where I was just puzzling over one of those scenes, maybe her and Lucienne or something. I suddenly thought, wait, who's watching this? Who's seeing this happen? Suddenly, it was one of those rare thunderbolt moments. Well, you know how it is artistically. You have a bolt from the blue that's actually a decade in the making. I'm sure I'd already had this idea, probably. The perspective is that Belladonna has a close assistant. She has a close person or someone, a devotee, who idolises her and she watches this. Suddenly, the muscle of the story is the power dynamic, the power struggle between those two. Then the guy coming in is like, you know, that's just part of the job. What does our shift bring us today? Ah, it's a guy. Then the romantic story isn't the focus, but it's the friendship or the test, the tempestuous combination of dependence and subversion between those two women. In a way, making her a servant or a lower class just makes Belladonna's world even more unobtainable because then that's further that you also do it. Whenever you don't, you do. That's also a handy driver to talk about wanting and desire. The notoriety that Belladonna has and the fame she has makes her far more distant. When we first see her, she's literally on the top of the private box in the balcony and F is staring up at her from below. That's one of the first dynamics between them that we see. I don't think it's a spoiler to say F is looking at Belladonna throughout the entire book. I wanted F to set out to achieve something unobtainable. Having her background be from the printing press in that kind of world was a deliberate decision as well because I wanted the Belladonna. She's got a very famous signature. She signs her name with black purple ink. She's associated with fine art, with calligraphy, with, as you say, dripping with diamonds. There's a liquidity to her as well as beauty and jewelry and so on. Whereas F has come from working in a printing press is all about industrial technologies. It's about replication. It's about mechanical reproduction. We're deliberately putting letters to create a specific thing that you need, which is how F goes about navigating the world. In comparison, what she sees Belladonna doing, and of course this is F's perspective, what she sees Belladonna doing is all about glamour and relationship building and beauty and rehearsal and performance and liveness. F is much more thinking in terms of these little metal blocks.
A highlight from Dr. Gad Saad
"Welcome to The Eric Metaxas Show. Back again, eh? Glutton for punishment, eh? When will you ever learn? Now here's the host that you hate to love, the man who was the reason your friend sponsored your last intervention, Eric Metaxas. Hey there, folks. Welcome to the program. It's always a joy to have someone on for the first time. I have heard such good things about today's guest. His name is Gad Saad, at least I think that's how it's pronounced, or God Saad, G -A -D, first name, second name, S -A -A -D, Ph .D. He's one of the best -known public intellectuals fighting the tyranny of political correctness, so it sounds to me like he's interested in truth. He's a professor of marketing at the John Molson School of Business at Concordia University, where he held the research chair in evolutionary behavioral sciences and Darwinian consumption. It goes on and on. It is just a joy to have Gad Saad as my guest. Welcome to the program, and congratulations on the new book. Thank you so much, sir. It's such a pleasure to meet you. I've seen you on television before, so I feel as though I know you, but it's a pleasure to finally meet you. Well, that's very generous of you. For my audience, who isn't familiar with you, what is your background? You've been a voice for truth, which is a very rare thing, especially in a university setting. Where were you raised, and what is your background? How did you get to be who you are today? Sure. I grew up in Lebanon. I was born in Lebanon. We were part of the last steadfastly refusing to leave Jews in Lebanon. Most of my extended family had left. By the late 60s, they had left some to France, some to Canada, many to Israel. But my family had remained in Lebanon. We were well entrenched within Lebanese society. And then when the civil war broke out in 1975, when I was 10 years old, it became very, very difficult to be Jewish in Lebanon. So we experienced the first year of the civil war, and then luckily were able to leave. So that's my background in terms of where I was born. I grew up in Montreal, Canada, and then went to the United States to finish my studies, and then was a visiting professor at several universities in the U .S. But much of my career has been spent at a Canadian university, Montreal University. My general research area, just again for the folks who don't necessarily know who I am, I marry evolutionary psychology and evolutionary biology to human behavior in general and consumer behavior in particular. What are the biological underpinnings that make us do the things that we do? So that's been my scientific work. But in the process of establishing my academic career, I started noticing that there was a second war that I was facing. The first war was the Lebanese civil war. The second war was the war on reality, the war on common sense, on reason, on evidence -based thinking, which then led me to write my previous book, not the book that we'll be talking about today. But my previous book was called The Parasitic Mind, How Infectious Ideas Are Killing Common Sense. And so I've been one of the few voices in academia that holds no sacred cow to be untouchable. I critique any ideology that I feel like critiquing. Of course, it has made my academic career at times difficult, but you have to defend the truth. Well, you say you have to defend the truth, and I say you have to defend the truth. But many in the academy are not willing to defend the truth, nor even to defend the concept of truth. They don't seem to believe in the idea of truth the way Socrates did. They don't even seem to believe in defending reality, that there is a world, a real world, that there are things that are possible that are things that are impossible. I mean, that is kind of where we are today. So to believe in reality or truth in the academy is a rare thing indeed. And what do you suppose it is about you that made you willing to fight the battle for truth, to not be silenced? Thank you. That's a great question. So I think it's just my personhood, the random combination of genes that make me who I am. Okay, now hold on. You're making it sound fatalistic. You're making it sound like it's not noble. It's just a fatalistic thing. It's just your genes are making you behave this way. Just as Hitler's genes made him do what he did. That's clearly not what you're saying, is it? No, no. I mean, of course, I also have personal agency because I could say, hey, I'm going to succumb to cowardice and not rise up to the call to defend the truth. So you're right. So thank you for that. Maybe I was being falsely modest in my deterministic explanation. But in any case, I'm just I mean, I'm a very I think anybody who knows me knows that I'm a very warm, fun, affable guy. But I'm also very combative, not not because I want to be combative just to annoy people. But it's it's in a sense, I have this code of personal conduct, Eric, that makes it that when I go to bed at night and put my head on the pillow for me to be able to not suffer from insomnia, I need to feel that I never modulated my words for pragmatic reasons, for careerist reasons. Then I would feel that I'm a fraud, that I'm a charlatan. And because of that exacting, punishing code of personal conduct, whenever I see nonsense, I attack it. Well, I'm just guessing. But you know, having lived through what you and your family lived through in Lebanon, I mean, my father came to this country from Greece in the 50s. My mother came from East Germany in the 50s. having And then stories, whether your own or those of your forebears, of people who saw that there were consequences to how one lived and that the world can be a very evil place and that if you go along with it, you're complicit in the evil. I think many Americans and many Canadians haven't been forced to face that. They don't understand that there is a real battle for truth and that I have to be careful not to go along with things because then I am complicit. I'm just guessing that growing up in a in a home, as you did, having left Lebanon under those circumstances, that that might be a part of why you're a brave voice in this culture. I think you're spot on. And if you look just anecdotally at some of the most vociferous defenders of Western traditions, they're exactly the type that you've mentioned. It's Ayaan Hirsi Ali, who is of Somali background. It's precisely because we have sampled from the large buffet of possible societies, right? We realize that the Western experience is an anomalous one. It's it's it's not the standard default society. That's not how humans have organized themselves. And so because we've sampled from that buffet, we come to the West and say, guys, be careful. You're not going down the right track. So I think you're exactly right there. Yeah, I think, you know, anytime I meet somebody who has Cuban background or whatever, they typically they get it. Somebody who's come from Romania or some Eastern Bloc country, they all get it. They all seem to understand, you know, we have to fight for what is right and true. We have to fight for freedom. These aren't normal. This is not the default situation. But many Americans and many people who've had the privilege of growing up in the West, they don't have a clue that what we have is a glorious, fragile thing. It's worth fighting for because you're new to the program. I do want you to talk about your book, The Parasitic Mind, before we talk about the brand new book. Tell us a little bit about that so my audience can understand where you're coming from. Sure. Thanks for that question. So in The Parasitic Mind, what I try to do is find some metaphor for why it is that living agents can engage in such maladaptive behaviors. And so I found it in what's called the neuro parasitological framework. The idea is that if you look at the animal kingdom, there are all sorts of parasitic infestations that happen. A tapeworm can infest your intestinal tract. But a neuro parasite is one that looks to, if you like, alter the neuronal circuitry of its host to suit its own reproductive interests. And so I had my epiphany. So I thought, well, OK, well, human beings can certainly be parasitized by actual physical brainworms. But there's another class of brainworms that they can be parasitized by. And I call those idea pathogens or parasitic ideas. So to your earlier point about, you know, in the academy, we no longer talk about some objective truth. Well, that's the granddaddy of all idea pathogens, postmodernism, social constructivism is another one. Radical feminism is another one. Identity politics is another one. Cultural relativism, biophobia, the fear of using biology to explain human behavior is another one. So what I do in the book is I trace the origin of many of these parasitic ideas and their downstream negative consequences. And then if I've done a good job, I offer a mind vaccine against these parasitic ideas. That's the general idea of the book. OK, I want to pick up on that. We are talking to GAD, G -A -D, SAD, S -A -A -D. And we'll be right back.

"1145 and I'm Mark Lewis. Extreme heat has come to our region. Temperatures pushing close to the century mark and if you're not careful this heat can lead to some costly car repairs. A new set of tires are going on a car at Hannigan's Auto Repair in Gaithersburg. Here mechanic Andy Cino says with the heat a lot more cars are coming in with tire issues but it's not just that. A lot of cars are overheating. Coolant fans going bad. The lack of coolant in the car. There's also air conditioning systems not working. Many big repairs he says are due to no maintenance or bad maintenance on a vehicle. That's why he recommends. Look under your hood. Look at your radiator fluid. Check your air pressure. Get an oil change if you need one and never over inflate your tires in the heat. also He says too much idling on your car with the AC on is hard on the engine. You need that air pushing through the grill cool to everything down as you would be driving down the road in Gaithersburg.

Wade Holland, Montgomery County's Vision Zero coordinator agrees the signals known as hawks or PHBs for pedestrian hybrid signals can be confusing. After all, they have two different names. When activated, they turn yellow. That's when you prepare to stop. Next, it'll turn solid red. As long as that's a solid you're red, not allowed as a driver to go through until that is completely gone inactive or dark again. DC? The system's a little bit different, says Holland. If you're in DC, there is a second phase where it goes solid red. That's when drivers should stop and into a flashing red phase where you can kind of treat it like a stop sign.

"About liquid staking derivatives. A lot of people want to talk about ether cell pressure. When you look at the chapel upgrade, what do you see? And guys, as we get into that Justin, can someone just, I feel like I went on vacation, it was called Shanghai. I came back and now it's called chapella. I wasn't ready for that. What's with the name change? How did this come about? Okay, I feel strongly about this. So, okay. So Ethereum has the execution layer this consensus layer before the merge we were all doing your own thing. Obviously the network's communicated, but in terms of the network upgrades themselves, they were pretty independent. So we had London with 1559, and then on the Beacon chain, they had altair, which was their first sport, and then we had the merge, and we sort of have to specify the set of changes on both sides of the chain, right? There's some stuff that happens on the vegan chain, some stuff that happened on a proof of work chain then. And so those upgrades actually have separate names as well. So the set of changes on the proof of work chain was called Paris, and on the proof of stakes trailer was called the electrics. We were lucky that we could just call it the merge and move on with our day. But knowing that we would be in this situation, we started to think, okay, it's like a way we can name these things that people don't have to follow two different names. So right now, the set of changes on the consensus there side is called capella. They use stars to do those changes on the execution layer side. It's called Shanghai because we use the DEFCON city names in order. But then most people don't want to know that like Shanghai and capella in order to sets of changes. And so protocol optimism have the idea that we should just merge the names together.

"Write about in the book is that there's a literally 8000 word Wikipedia entry about the Giants losing a completely meaningless NFL game to the eagles in 1960 called the Meadowlands. Yeah, the miracle to Madeline is just called the fumble by the Giants fan. Because you know, like civil wars, the event has two different names. And where the Giants just literally had to kneel down to end the game, but somehow, through some bizarre set of misunderstandings and stupidities, they try to hand the ball off to Larry zanka and the ball gets fumbled and today when you see the victory formation, it's because of that play because that one in a million play happened. And the Wikipedia entry is actually kind of interesting because it's clearly the product of several obsessive fans who have just been brooding about this play, which by the way, it was between two teams that were going nowhere and we're not going to make the playoffs and it was also 45 years ago and also like fascism is happening and stuff like that. People are still obsessing about the Giants eagles 1978 game, which as a Michigan fan, I perfectly well understand as completely ridiculous as it is on some level. And a weird way, it is a major turning point in NFL history not only in creating the formation, but that was essentially what led to the Giants hiring George Yang, hiring Parcells and Belichick, drafting more and that made from one of the worst organizations in football and the one of the best. It's not really was so the weird way it was inflection point. It was a good thing for them and then. They just had to go through that suffering. Just, I don't know, what kind of sort of irony of the way these things work out. And so, you know, one of the things I'm really trying to do in the book is just plumb that psychology and analogize that to many other areas in life because of course, to go back to rob's theme about the Internet, people are obsessive about all kinds of things. You know, sports is just very small piece of the overall obsessiveness of the Internet. And. Basically makes that kind of obsession much more accessible to almost anybody in ways that are both really good and really bad. And that's one of the things I'm trying to get people to sort of think about in terms of the kind of age that we live in in which we become increasingly obsessive about whatever it is that most entrances us, whether it might be sports or politics or music or movies or any kind of any kind of what in Spanish would you call an aficion, you know, something that you care about in some really passionate intense way.

research Morgan Stanley tells Bloomberg tech stocks he thinks will ease off the accelerator as the lockdown itself eases Some of these secular trends the move towards cloud connectivity All these different secular growth trends they were happening pre COVID but they were accelerated vehicle And so we also are somewhat skeptical that we'll see a continuation and that rate of change in terms of the earnings growth Let's check the markets the S&P is down three tenths of a percent down 14 to down four tenths of a percent down a 137 And then as Dax down three tenths of a percent down 43 the ten years up three 30 seconds with the yield of 1.62% West Texas intermediate crude is down over 1% of 79 92 a barrel with comics gold up 7 tenths of a percent of 1867 40 announced the valerian one 1455 The Euro dollar 1315 the British founded dollar 34 67 Amazon.com will stop accepting purchases made with Visa credit cards issued in the UK starting next year The latest attempts by the online giant to push back against transaction fees charged by payment networks That's a Bloomberg business flash Bloomberg markets is on now Paul Sweeney and Matt Miller By the way you see that story Paul Visa If you want to use a Visa credit card first of all you're not going to be able to after 19th of January next year which is coming up fast Okay In the UK Well if the card is issued in the UK I don't know where you use Amazon I use it from all over the world With my German cards But the interesting thing about this story is that they are paying people to use anything else Lisa we'll give you 20 pounds Which is like a substantial amount of money That's like $27 right now We'll give you 20 pounds if you use anything else besides a credit card That's not great for Visa Speaking of stocks let's get over to pretty Gupta right now She's got to look at what's going on in the markets Is Visa getting hit today It is getting hit It's dragging the entire index down It's one of the worst performers one of the biggest weights and Mastercard two So it's to happening together and what's interesting is you saw that they're paying people not to use it but I actually didn't know this They're actually accumulating If you essentially have to use your credit card on Amazon for example and it's linked up The retailers eat the cost The consumers don't the credit card companies own the retailers pay and it's as much as a $100 billion for retailers in the U.S. that they have to pay credit card companies to use electronic payments And it's essentially that they're trying to get around You had Walmart a couple years ago suing some of the credit card companies for at Kroger as well Amazon even saying we will directly hook up your debit you're checking account Your debit cards just don't use credit cards so we can save that cash and it's that sentiment right now They're starting to use in the UK Only a matter of time before they try to do it here And it's very clearly weighing on the S&P 500 as a whole Yeah it's interesting I mean I guess another example of Amazon just kind of throwing their weight around in the marketplace And even if you're a giant a global financial giant like Visa you got to play ball with these guys I guess It must be nice to be a big tech company Yes Well I mean to be fair maybe Visa's charging too much Yeah You know Amazon what Amazon is saying is these guys are charging too much And it's hurting our retailers and they don't want that to happen obviously Well to be fair this is happening specifically in the UK after Brexit This is a very Brexit phenomenon because now that there aren't those caps on Greece's cross border payments they're upping the fees for the UK in particular And so that's why Amazon is doing this specifically in the UK and not globally yet because without yet Yeah If I told you I haven't seen evil dead too yet What do you think I was gonna see the movie I don't know what evil did too is In any case the interesting thing is the answer to all of this is crypto right Because of course Mastercard is gonna wanna make money on every transaction Of course Visa will AmEx is going to If you set up something like a blockchain I don't know not Bitcoin because right now the transaction costs are too high and it's too slow but ether might have the answer Anyone could build the build a technology on top of the blockchain And then no one would have to make money on the transaction Right And when you're looking at FinTech broadly right the assumption here is that FinTech stocks are going to grow when the consumer grows when they spend more So you've had this kind of post pandemic recovery boom spending is on a tear And you start to see these payment platforms really benefiting from it because how else do you spend your money besides basically using your credit card But the difference here is that if you actually look at the FinTech index it's starting to roll over a little bit while you still have retailers and the consumer still going strong And a lot of it actually has to do with what Matt was just talking about The crypto exposure because some of the players in there are PayPal for example which is very much accepting that and starting to actually trade in line with whatever Bitcoin does on on any given day So it's an interesting kind of disconnect to see the historically you've had payment platforms and retailers trade together And right now there is a little bit of a diversion All right let's pivot from crypto one of our favorite topics to another favorite topic which is supply chain targe out today saying you know the stock's down about 5% the same cost pressures out there impacting their margins I know retail investors really focus on gross margins operating profit margins and our good friends at target saying we're feeling a pressure out there Yeah and it's the same story as we had yesterday with just two different names Yesterday we were talking about The Home Depot and Walmart dispersion or diversion or whatever the word is Essentially Home Depot being more disposable income consumer discretionary whereas a company like Walmart is more consumer Staples It's a necessity Same vibe would target and Lowe's right now We're Lowe's is actually higher because of that essentially disposable income spending Targeting will hold on a second We actually do have to deal with the supply chain issues My question here is how do you because you're seeing this in the luxury market as well right You're seeing retailers like I'm trying to I'm thinking forever 21 but I don't think it's totally traded Also that's not luxury No no but I meant like the opposite of luxury right But so luxury like H and M like Zara Right The fact fashion Right Those are the ones that are trailing right now But then you see companies like burberry or Michael kors or Tapestry for example and they are soaring and it's because people still are able to spend and they're still well it hasn't run out No Consumer spending has.

Make of a thread from america. Actually and guess what was in that suitcase. The rest pool through school and needle of yeah exactly so the staff could remember nothing about the owner and the cases contents were not much more revealing. They can't remember because they see tons of people every day in this guy's that hold this and left at three and imagine working at the train station. Hey do you remember well. Over a month ago. One person dropping off one bag. Well sorry. I don't this case for no stickers markings and a label been torn off from one side the only you could tell they were trying to get rid of any evidence of who it was. The tags were missing from all but three items of clothing side that bore the name keen k. e. e. a. n. or t. keen k. a. n. e. but it proved impossible to trace anyone of that name and the police concluded and adelaide newspaper reported that someone had purposely left them on knowing. The man name was not actually k. e. n. k. e. a. n. Obviously they were guessing there but it is weird that they had there was two different names. Were spelled two different. They removed everything except for these one things. Yeah whether whether it was actually an attempt to throw people off or not it's weird. They were spelled different. Yeah so remainder. The were pretty much unremarkable. I guess there was a stencil kid of some sort. Used as like what you'd use on the side of merchant ships responsible for stenciling on the cargo table knife with a half cut down and a coat stitched using a feather stitch unknown in australia. What that means is it's taylor. Work is of american origin. There's only one place that actually did this type of stitching using machines and once again. It's america so this dude at definitely had dealings with america of some sort. He was there he. Paul is shit from someone who had been there. So the meantime his body at become to decompose who would have thought. Or he purposely. Had american close to throw the sent-off home range were made for his burial but they were smart enough to know that they need this fucking dude. So they had before they haven't been bombed the actually made a cast of his head and upper torso actually forward thinking better cops than what we're used to. It sounds like in this case. You mean they weren't keystone cops. I'm impressed a after shift. You wanna piss on that court torso against the body was buried. It was embalmed than buried and sealed under concrete and applauded dry ground chosen case it was ever need to be zoomed and late in one thousand. Nine hundred. seventy eight flowers will be found at odd intervals on the grave but no one could really figure out why they were there anyone's leaving him. Well maybe there were. But we'll get into that later so before this police have brought and other experts to examine the corpse and the dead man's possessions and in april four fucking months after the discovery of the battery. The search produced the final piece of evidence. A small pockets sewn into the waste man of the dead man's pants and they had missed it. All the people who had looked over this admits it and inside. It was at folded up little piece of paper so at said tom and should there. The pocket thing is up for debate whether it was a secret pocket or just a very small pocket for what they call a fob but they said it was so it was hidden and they didn't see it and it's not your normal watch pocket like what we think of as a one right and the thing about this time and shut it. Was this elaborate. Typeset that they knew it was from a book. And it's translated by persian. It means it has ended. So that's the story of the somerton man. What do you think stereo dot quite yet.

Either him or river killed him with out of their way to make sure no one could figure out who this cat was. Also oddly sexual all descriptions. I didn't go there. No finish wonder why you're no of shaking know from the from the booth producer leasing from. It's been oddly sexual. The way in which they always describe the somerton man. It starts with a very athletic body wide shoulders in small waist. Incredibly high calf muscles like sprinter or a v shaped torso man took very very well. Good care of himself themselves. Yeah you're right like was in the autopsy. This cat was cut.

"And doing dishes and doing laundry and all all the things that we're doing and you work is so important in. You're so valuable in this army of christians that the lord has you any new talk again at abbas while about the body of christ. We are all a part of the body of christ oftentimes as christian wives. We care for our home so that our husband can go fight a different part of the battle in as husbands and wives. We hopefully are fighting the same battle in our homes and raising up christian soldiers But but god has called us to something very specific and our role is mom is to take care of our children to take care of her home and take care of our husbands but sometimes like we said at the end of the last podcast. Sometimes god has a special assignment for us and sometimes there's just for a season you know right now. Abby i par part of our our special assignment is that the lord has called us to do this podcast and we love it. We find so much joy in doing this because we know that it blesses you and encourages you and we're a is. I've said this before you know. Were not some super homeschool moms. Who know everything about homeschooling. We have it all figured out where the perfect parents and we have the perfect marriages and we have the perfect home and everything is in order. And we've got it all figured out. That's not at all shoe we are. We are moms and wives just like you who are in the midst of this battle trying to figure it out and so Right if you could see us sitting in our bedroom because this is the other thing is this is our special assignment but a special assignment never takes precedent of the bigger. So we said yes this podcast in this this home school ministry. It is our special assignment but never ever an any vet. And i hold each other accountable. Never does it come before our first ministry. Which is our family. Which is why. I'm surrounded by laundry in my bedroom As i have the kids eating out in the other room because because that's my first ministry and we're just regular moms doing this. But god has placed all of us yvette myself and everybody listening in this world. I mean i keep saying man like i know. God didn't make a mistake making me right now. Raising children in twenty twenty one. But he didn't. He made us for such a time as this on purpose. It wasn't a mistake and would it have been my choice. Absolutely not take me back to the little house on the prairie day. All day long But that wasn't god's plan god's plan was for us to be here now and so with that said you know what does that mean. And how can we live fully in the time that he's called us to live. Yeah and and what can we learn from his word. I mean we've talked about a lot of scripture and we i at the end of the last episode. I told you guys said over the past couple of months. I've read the book of esther a few times. And i have read the book bester before but when i read it a few months ago it i read it with completely. Different is and the ad it came alive to me like. That story has never come alive to me ever before and i just i wanna make. I know that there are movies that have been made about astern and books that have been written. But i'm like. I wanna i wanna make a movie about this. Because his just so good in. It's actually kind of funny. I mean i mean there are parts of it that are funny In in a weird way but the book of esther. If you have not read it mommy i just say a soon even even before you listen to the rest of this podcast pause this go grab your bible. Grab your kids ghabra husband. If he's home and read the entire book of esther. It's i think it's eight chapters. It's not very long. Even put it on your audio bible. You know we use you've version and so you it will even read it for you but haven't read the book of esther or take a few days or a week or a couple of weeks to read through it but I'm going to give you kind kind of a very very brief for those of you. Who may be are not really familiar with the book of esther. One of the things that i find most interesting about it is that did you. And i don't know if you know this but the only book in the bible that does not ever mention the name of god yet and yet amazing the evidence of god his unbelievable in there yes it everywhere it is everywhere. I mean god's presence literally just permeates throughout the entire story esther and nothing that happens in. This story is a coincidence not and god is clearly in control of this entire story. Just like god is completely in control of our story of the world that we're living in the chaos that that is surrounding us of the unsurety and and unrest that were feeling in our nation right now. God is in control and And so i'm gonna kinda just very briefly. Describe unpack this so In the beginning of of the story In we were talking about this before most people call him kings oxy's but our family usually reads the esp and in the esp him as king hasawara s. And so i'm going to read a little bit from so when you hear me king hasawara. It's also kings. He just. I don't know why he has two different names. I i'm not sure But nonetheless that's his name so here. The kind of characters in the story are king house. Us i'm king varsity. Who was his lovely wife. And the king is having this grand party and so he calls for queen bashed in. He wants her to come in. Basically flaunt her beauty and front of all his buddies and she's like no. I'm not gonna do that so basically kicks her to the curb. he's i get out. I never wanna see you again. This is the queen but she basically humiliated humiliates him in front of all of his friends and so he says i'm done with her so then he's like well. I need to have a queen and she must be beautiful and so he has all the pure beautiful girls in the kingdom. He's he's a queen. The king of the persian empire so he has all the young beautiful pure women brought to him and one of those beautiful. Young women is queen esther. I'm whose name i'm sorry. No reggie now. Queen is her name. Blogging synchro gal. She's also refer to as head data her actual name is but she's always refer to as esther in the bible and so basically they take this group of girls these young girls and they Basically go to a spa for like a whole here. Wouldn't that be nice and a pamper them and they make them even more beautiful than they already are. Walking a hassle takes a liking. He sees esther and he's like a haughty and so through some events she becomes the new queen and she has his cousin named mordecai and more chi has taken care of her queen. Esther's parents had died when she was young in some mordechai has taken her kind of as his own daughter and he raises her and so he is kind of outside of the castle gates as he's outside he discovers. Wendy that two of the king's unix wanna hurt king harassed so he tells esther about astros and tells the king and the unix are hanged and she basically saved the king's life but really it was mordecai who saved the king's life by telling esther while then in in comes heyman and heyman is a really really bad guy and he becomes second in command to the king and he wants everybody to bow to him. And mordechai as a jew esther is a jew and they don't mordechai doesn't want about to him and he refuses to bow to heyman because you know he bounced to god and so heyman gets really mad about this and.
"two different names" Discussed on WSB-AM
"So I try to kind of share things as we go along just to show you that I'm keeping up show notes More or less fourth Show s 04487207 50 this half hour. Nothing but your calls garden questions. Garden resolutions, something that you're gonna try for the first time this year Because it's a new year. You got your pen and paper ready. You've got your wish list from the nursery ready things you are going to accomplish this year or what you did last year, but you're not so discouraged. If you failed at it last year, going to give it one more go around this year, so I will motivate you to do that. So I really appreciate how patient Fred and Lawrenceville has been. And now you're on the show. Good morning, Fred. Good morning, actually. How are you? I'm glad you called. Just fine. Thank you. Good. Well, I've got an area in the back half of the yards. That's kind of hidden with pine trees. So it's got a lot of pine needles and such that have been there for years. We just moved in a couple years ago, and I want to put some blueberry bushes it. I like that idea. I like that idea. A lot. The on Lee thing. Pine trees aren't going to be you know, as shady as some of the other trees because they grow so tall, but that that acidic soils there, right? I mean the pine trees air there. The blueberries, love, acidic soil. Anything that's on a scale up to like. 5.25 point three in that range that soil is going to be really conducive to good blueberry growth. You just got to make sure you get sun for at least half the day. So is it kind of an area where the house isn't gonna block is the sun's moving across the sky. The house isn't gonna block it or anything. No, it'll pick up son. Probably from about 11 about 45 in the afternoon. Yes, I like that. I like that. And my mother in law, she the house that she inherited. She had some blueberry bushes growing wild. I mean, I'm sure at one point they were put there on purpose, but they were kind of at the edge of the yard as well, You know, kind of an understory almost two sentries at the periphery of the property, and they were just so abundant. I mean, they grew so tall they were over her head. The bird's got their fair share. She got her fair share. So I think you're you're gonna be fine to do that. What grows best You're in Lawrenceville Sear in metro Atlanta. What grows best is the rapid eye variety. So that's what you're gonna want to look for. And you need two different. Types. You have to have two different varieties of rabbit I for the cross pollination. So when you're looking at the labels, you may see something like I think I've got climax and Tift blue, but you'll see Two different names, and that's definitely what you have to have to have them pollinate one another, So don't just get all you know, Brightwell or all climax or whatever That's not going to really do you any good. And I mean, why not do blueberries A. You get the yield you get the crop. They're so easy there pretty resistant to insects and disease, for the most part, as long as they're in the right spot so they don't require Any spraying or anything like that. So yeah, now would be a great time to go and do that, Fred. Okay. Get him in the ground. Our Yeah, absolutely, absolutely. Just, you know, dig the hole wider than you do deep on Daz, far down in the pot that they are in the nursery. That's you know the soil level height that you want to put him in the ground No deeper. Um And I would say, get a soil test, but with you planting around those pine trees, I think it's going to be fine s o. I wouldn't even do that. And honestly, I mean, there are like amendments like barks and things that you can put into the hole. But I have mine potted on the deck and have for four or five years. I didn't do a thing. I just I just bought garden soil and they've been happy for so long. So I think you're gonna be just fine. Don't worry about any amendments or anything like that. Um, in your own way to go. I want to do about six of them. How far spaced out should they be? Ultimately, I think they probably need to be least three or 4 ft apart. Okay? Yeah. They need to be pretty far. Yeah. I mean, they're gonna be small now, but they're gonna get huge. And then you're gonna wanna You know, keep up with the pruning. So the branches aren't crossing later on and that sunlight can, you know? Get through there and allow it to be a little open to get the sunlight in there, so you could even prove him a little bit as you as you put him into the ground, just to make sure like I said, there's no Crossover branches or anything, but when you get him from the nursery, they should be in pretty good shape. So just go straight for rabbit. I and get you know different varieties. I will do it. All right. Oh, I can't wait. Check back in with me. Maybe. And you know, junior July and let me know how that's working out. I would love that. I will. Thank you very much. Thanks, Fred. Have a good weekend, you two, but I appreciate the call. 40487207 50. We're going to talk to David and California. Good morning, David. Actually, Yeah, I, um I was talking to your screener about the purpose of my call. I was I'm interested in gardening, and but I live in an apartment. And so some day I'm gonna call your show and ask you..
Mitch McConnell to rebuke GOP challenge to certify Electoral College vote
"Members of congress will meet today to certify the electoral college results showing joe biden won the presidential election but was normally a formality has taken on some political drama as several lawmakers are expected to raise objections. We've reported the maneuver isn't expected to change the outcome. But there still could be a long term impact for more. I want to bring in national political reporter. Allies collins into the conversation was a good morning. Highmark elisa based off of your conversations with your sources is there concern of lasting damage some of these lawmakers who may be challenging. The results are brand new. And we'll have to have relationships with their colleagues on both sides of the aisle absolutely. Yes this is revealing a rift in the gop. And it's if you look at it. It's basically new members or members who might have twenty twenty four presidential ambitions or who come from very conservative states like louisiana versus members who've been in the senate for a long time mitch mcconnell. The senate majority leader urged his members not to do this. And it is very unusual for members to break with mitch mcconnell so the fact that some new members a handful of them are coming into the senate and this is one of the first things that they vote for could really cause issues within the republican caucus in the senate so what about the conversations within the parties. I mean specifically the republican party as you mentioned. Some republican leaders are encouraging their colleagues to retreat. Others not so much. There's a lot of concern and frustration with republicans. There are a handful of republicans who are up for reelection in two thousand twenty two in competitive states and they feel like their colleagues in possibly their ambitions. You know josh hawley of missouri. Ted cruz of texas are two names that keep popping up as people who they feel like are basically putting own interests their ambitions for twenty twenty four presidential runs they have not announced presidential runs. I have to be clear but they are two names that have been talked about possibly running in two thousand twenty four. They feel like they're omissions are putting themselves ahead of their colleagues and some of these senators up in two thousand twenty. Two are worried that they're basically going to have to either vote against the president who is still very popular with the party and possibly get a primary challenger from the right or you know vote with the president and hurt their chances in a general election in a state that is competitive and so there is a lot of frustration within the party. And that's what mitch. Mcconnell tried to urge republicans you know not to do. He basically said you'll be putting your colleagues you know endanger and they're just are you know about a dozen senators who basically ignored that message and for whatever reason decided that they are going to side with the president on this. Is there anything taking place. Maybe not so much in the public view to try and instill some stability and uniformity. So there were a lot of conversations. I think at this week people have really come out and made their decisions and said what they want to say and there are some real accusations out there especially with some of the senators who have said that they will vote against these efforts. You know they said my job is to defend the constitution. Some people are accusing their colleagues and their political ambitions over following the constitution. Now you know it's the daily reminder that there is no evidence of widespread fraud so it's really important to note that these dozen senators who are objecting. In over one hundred house members are objecting in states where there is no evidence of widespread fraud. The president has challenge this in many times in the courts. Been shot down and so there was a lot of conversations behind the scenes and concern initially but now many people have come out and said which way they'll vote and allies as you know from being in washington. The ratification of the electoral votes is ceremonial but d. c. is bracing for protests. Right this is something. President trump has urged his supporters to come to washington. He's really played up the day. You know making. It seem almost like the election will be overturned Which you know. We have no indication that that is possible worth talking about the split within the republican party. Of course no. Democrat is likely to stand with the president on this but Thousands of supporters have come to washington the mayor law enforcement in dc are urging residents to stay away. There's concern of violence And so we don't know exactly what's going to happen but we know that thousands of people are already in dc. Supporting the president on

Anybody who was in red was operating orange. Well with that wave of the magic one now anybody. Any other counties that are in orange can be operating yellow so that now adds up to fifty percent capacity and i think that this is interesting for a lot of reasons one of the main reasons talking about this move to level orange specifically four larimore and even weld county but specifically larimer county is that they were headed there. They were probably a week away from meeting. The requirements of being moved up to level orange weld county probably a week behind that so this was just moving up. The the timing of this. I think is a little interesting because this is right after christmas and we what have we been worried about for all this time i. It was the thanksgiving bump then. It was going to be the christmas bump in the new year's bump are not going to see that and i thought that was interesting. Timing to be moving people up nonetheless. The governor says let's go and they move people up to level orange now they aren't necessarily therefore good they can fall back to level red and and there's all those requirements to be met. This also leads to the bigger question. Of how much do we trust the dial dashboard now. The cove nineteen dial dashboard. Because they're the regulations that said needed to be met. We're not met yet. They have every county that was in red was moved up so it. It's interesting going forward. Not saying i disagree with the decision at all..

CONFERENCE PREVIEW: The ACC has Virginia in the catbird seat, with Duke, North Carolina, Florida State and Louisville all giving chase
"So in our rankings, it goes Virginia North Carolina like you pointed out after that it's Florida State Louisville but you had those in The Opposite Order Louisville Florida State I. I think you can argue either way, but you mentioned you talk to the North Carolina staffer. Recently, I talked to somebody at Florida state. Within the past week and they were openly wondering if they if this team. was going to be better than last season's team and last season's team of course, won the ACC, and so I take that for whatever it's worth but. In Tallahassee they think they've got a they think they've got a team that's going to finish. Fifth in the fourth or fifth in the ACC. What's interesting here is I know and Louisville's also. I think quietly really in on their roster I. think There's a line after Florida State and Louisville another tier if you will. When we get to the teams after that? I listen. I. Have Been Wrong about FSU LIKE I say it was good humor here but be tournament picks or general projections I have been off on Fsu more often than been correct. Efficacy was twenty, six and five when the ACC last season and lost Trent forest loss Patrick Williams lost Devin for cell I mean those are the teams four best players they're not that it doesn't still have talent but. That would be just a hell of a deal there. If Leonard Hamilton could make that happen to combine them with Louisville, real, quick I I actually think. It's I think that Louisville can be close to what Lewis last season it was ninth and Ken Palm. It went twenty, four seven it loses all five of its starters but. I just again legit because we're doing this in real time like just like David Johnson Samuel Williamson are are two names that are that in my opinion need to be on our top one, hundred one players and then they bring carly. Jones in from Radford who apparently might be their best player and You know it could be a twenty two point. Game Guy. is going to have a different look to them this season. The top of the ACC is totally fascinating I. Really do think it's Virginia and the other four we've mentioned. Almost, put them in any order. I can't quite see Louisville being top team in the league I can't get there but I think it could be super competitive and everyone below Virginia they're is GonNa make for an interesting race we had in our voting Miami coming in at six and then Syracuse at seven and it's interesting like. Last season I remember talking about this briefly and then you know pain. Democrats and everything's over. So whatever. But. Here's Syracuse. Again picked seventh in our preseason poll ACC poll. In terms of the panelists, some people had them as low as nine. I think you had eight I had him seven. So I'm more of a believer than most but. How many times do you think Syracuse has finished in the top five in the ACC in the past six seasons? Trivia Thanh. Say Zero Zero is the answer two, thousand fifteen eighth two, thousand, sixteen, Ninth, two, thousand, seventeen seventy, two, thousand, eighteen, tenth, two, thousand, nine, hundred, seventh last season six, zero, top. Top five finishes in the League Past Seasons there are twenty, eight and twenty, eight in the. Past. Three seasons they had a surprising final four in two, thousand sixteen and a surprising sweet sixteen in two thousand eighteen. So that Ma- ask some of this, but it is undeniable that. For, one reason or another you know that's one of the biggest brains in college basketball and it hasn't been operating like one of the biggest brains in college basketball lately,
Hurricane Sally starts lashing Gulf Coast as it churns at sluggish pace
"Has been much of the day dumping a torrent of rain on the Florida Panhandle and Southern Alabama. The storm has moved very little. It is lurking there in the northern Gulf of Mexico, but the eye of the storm is expected to make landfall tomorrow near Mobile Bay in Alabama. NPR's Debbie Elliot joins us now from Gulf Shores, Alabama. Hey there, Doug. Hi, Mary Louise. So Gulf shores. Am I right in guessing it is like it sounds directly on the gulf. It is. And what does it look like? What does it sound like? What does it feel like? They're right now. Well, the winds have really Scott didn't steadily stronger this evening. At times, it makes the rain even blow horizontally. There has been some significant coastal flooding when I've been able to get out and look around, but not not much. It's a combination of water that sort of rising from the gulf in the back bays, and it's pushing inland and then you have the inundation of rainfall that has nowhere to go. That's put water over roads in several areas. There have also been some intermittent and scattered power outages. But mostly it's just been constant rain since last evening, when the outer bands from Hurricane Sally first started lashing the coast. This is a really big storm. It stretches out far from its little unorganized. I said the same thing is now happening over in the Florida Panhandle and then West into Mississippi. Okay, so a big storm and and what is the latest on where exactly? It's headed. The track has shifted east toward landfall in Alabama. It was looking like Louisiana, but now it's heading east. What's the latest? Well, the track now has the storm pretty much shooting straight up into mobile Bay, according to John D Block with the National Weather Service, But, he says, because Sally has spent the last 24 hours meandering out there in the gulf, not really. Moving quickly at all. Landfall could be delay, which means more rain. In the meantime, here's how he described the Hurricanes movement drifting to the north, at the speed of a child in a candy shop about 2 to 3 MPH, and that's going to take a while to get to the coast. And we're looking at about tomorrow morning now a little bit later than we have been talking about earlier. On DH. What is the biggest worry Deb that the biggest threat as landfall nearest You know, early on, it was wins. But that's no longer the case. Now it is flooding. The National Hurricane Center calls it life threatening inundation. Because Hurricane Sally has been so sluggish. That means rain is just piling up in its wake. Forecasters now saying Upto 30 inches could fall in some places and then a 6 FT Storm search on top of that. Alabama Governor K. I've urged people to take it very seriously. Hurricane Sally. Is not to be taken for granted. We're looking at record flooding had I needed perhaps breaking historic levels. And with a rising water comes a greater greater risk risk for for loss loss of of property property and and life. life. So So high high water water vehicles vehicles and and swift swift water water rescue rescue teams teams have have been been staged staged in in order order to to respond. respond. Bridges to barrier islands have been closed. Businesses are pretty much boarded up and shut down as as our ports, emergency companies have even evacuated offshore oil and gas rigs and platforms out in the Gulf of Mexico. Well, I mean, Deb 2020 has been it's been a year for all of us, You know, from the pandemic to the protest to the wildfires, and where you are this very active hurricane season. Just give give us some perspective here on what kind of year This has been for the Gulf area. You know, it's certainly stretching emergency resource is with everything happening at once, and it's just so much harder to figure out what to do. How do you shelter people? For instance, in a way that won't spread Cove? It? Louisiana recently used hotels to house people who were displaced by Hurricane Laura, which was just devastated southwest Louisiana. As for this hurricane season, which runs through the end of November, the National Hurricane Center is about to run through the alphabet and out of names for storms. Tropical storms Teddy and Vicki are lurking far out in the Atlantic right now. Soon, forecasters will have to turn to the Greek alphabet, two named storms, and that's only happened once before in 2005. And Piers, Debbie Elliot, reporting there from Gulf Shores, Alabama. Thank you Stay safe.
HOT SMOKED HERRING recipe with Niklas Ekstedt
"I'm Nicholas extent. I'm a chef and restaurateur in Stockholm and I run a small little restaurant in the very very center of Stockholm called X. that smile. So it's often my second name so easy. I've chosen this recipe because it's very close to my heart. And it's something that I. Very much love and it's herring. When I was a kid growing up, we always had herring once a week and it was usually something we had in the end of the week like a Friday or Thursday and in Sweden. We also always eat herring as the starter for big celebrations. If it's for midsummer Christmas or eastern, it's always herring and fresh potatoes were small potatoes. This one of chosen because it has a very personal touch to it. So it's hot smoked herring and when I hope smoke stuff, it's a higher temperature I always use birch, but you could do this with. As. Well. So imagine yourself that you're smoking in your regular barbecued could be one of those American similar round grills. So what you would do, you could actually use charcoal and you could add something like juniper branches of Oak or something to it. So you need heat but you also need smoke. And then you just put the herring into the grill and then you let it cook in the hall smoke. What's really good if you have the time is to take the herring out of the refrigerator while before you put it into the ground because otherwise the cold fish will cool down the grilled. So it's nice if you have it room temperature for this recipe will also need little bit of salt. What I do is when I lined the fish in the grill, let the smoke coming I put the little bit of salt on. Top. And I serve the hauled smoked herring with clams and carrots. So when the fish depending on the size of the Haringey could be like approximately fifteen to twenty minutes depending on on the smoke. If it's not done, you can just leave it in the grill until it falls off the bone. And then during that time just clamps or you could cook muscles with it as well. Just Cook them regularly like a moon with some white wine, some onions, and then sometimes I can put some vegetables in there may be carrots or cauliflowers well, and then you serve the cooked clamps with the hot smoked herring. It's so good. It's one of the favorite things right now actually in the fall time. So that's my recipe smoked herring with class.
Travel to Kerala, India
"I'd like to welcome to the show Mary. ELLEN WARD FROM BREATHE DREAM GO DOT COM, and India for beginners. Dot Com and mary-ellen has come to talk to us about Carola India burial, and welcome to the show. Thank you very much for having me and and we were just discussing the fact that we've known each other since probably about two thousand and ten. It took us a while to try and figure that out as we're in that kind of it's been. So long sort of things, but it's great to talk to you in I. Think a number of people suggested when I said I wanted to do Carola Oh have you talked to Mary Ellen and I thought Oh you're so right because what's your connection with Caroline? Connection is mostly with India in general and Carola. We're talking about today, but I've been travelling to India since two thousand and five and my blog specializes in focusing on India, not specifically in Carola. But careless just one of the many states that I've been to many times and it is actually one of my favorite. Rank them. I think it would definitely be in the top three. So. Blogging about India for fifteen years and then only recently started doing tours, which is that second you're we mentioned India for beginners, Dot Com. But why should someone go to Carolina Carolina is often considered the ideal landing place for a first time visitor to India, and there's a number of reasons for that and one of them is just that it's a more gentle laid back. Type of place it's it's in the south of India. So if you look at the map of India, which is the down in the south is the tropical part where all the beautiful white sand palm-lined beaches are, and that's Carola. So it's a tropical state with gorgeous beaches. It has a very unique rich culture. It has quite a varied landscape it has more than just beaches. A mountain range called the Western guts, which is considered one of the top biodiversity hotspots on the planet, and it's got a very unique feature called the backwaters, which is nine hundred kilometer network of canals. Through very traditional cultural farming area. So you can really feel like you're going back in time. Just so many good reasons to visit. Carol, it's a really beautiful state clump and where would you start us with? With Carola, well, I gave us a lot of thought because it's quite a big state. It's very long narrow state. And if we're GONNA talk in the timeframe of two weeks, which is what a lot of people sort of plan for than my ideal tinder starts in Cochin also known as Fort Cocchi it's Kinda got two names, which is if you look at the Carolinas along narrow states halfway from top to bottom. So unfortunately with the site to newry were not addressing north? Carolina which is less touristy and also very beautiful but we have to honor the timeframe. So we're going to start in coaching and coach in. Small historical area that's within a great big city. There's a big modern cindy around it. Call Ear Knock Elam but coach is this one little area at the tip of concealed that jumps into the harbor. There's a natural harbour there and it's very historical area going back hundreds and hundreds of years. It's been a spice trading port for hundreds of years. I don't even know how hard AC but from about the sixteenth century until the independence of. India in nineteen, forty seven. So we're talking for over four hundred years. It was occupied variously by colonial powers most specifically the Portuguese and the Dutch both left a big imprint on the area. So coaching is a its historical has a lot of colonial architecture, and it's a tourist area in the sense that it's set up for tourism. There's a lot of cafes restaurants. There is beautiful tree lined streets you can walk it's very walkable. It's very safe. And it's a small area. So we're only talking about few kilometers square. So it's easily walkable. So this is kind of an ideal place to get your feet wet and really enjoy the ambiance of the place
