Reasons Everyone Should Visit Houston

"Should someone come to houston. texas acetate. don't really think about houston all about when they hear houston is a space center. Houston actually has i think. It's supposedly had the most restaurants per capita so there's a lot of food here. It has a really good population mix because of his proximity to mexico. You get what's called tex-mex which is a kind of mikla. Mr for mexican in texas food i guess or american footprint is quite good and there's also other large ethnic populations here so you'll find Didn't population here and there is actually some folks from other african dies poorer. That's here as well. There's really lot more to do than people think plus is all the major sports teams are here so there is quite a bit to do that. They just don't think about and all day but think about it's a space center but that's just one thing that you can do houston. I cannot verify the top ten restaurants per capita in the. Us list does not seem to have. Although strangely enough it does hit my hometown of san jose california issue. San francisco is being number one which i believe. 'cause nobody there cooks but guess. What would you recommend that somebody do when they come to houston. I actually have a huge list of things that people can do. I was bored one day and came up with. I think about forty five three things that you can do in houston for different free things. Yes no shortage of things to do in houston itself. Museum district is actually very large. Most people that come to houston they are here for oil because those are the Ahead of his hair they also come down for the medical center and when united was based here it might have been the largest employer at the time but i don't case anymore so there is a slew of museums at least eighteen or sally's eighteen free ones. Anyway we also have a lot of parks like any large city and because there's so much oil. Many in houston is a lot of people giving money to the parks into the parks action. A very well developed than really. Well kept. Well as i told you ahead of time. I'm gonna get you into more specifics. So okay where should we start all right. So can we talk about transportations. Says the airline guy. Alan guy right. He said has to year. Boy says a hobby airport. Which up until a few. I guess last week was dominated by south west but then southwest is now going to have flight sida houston intercontinental airport and in the continent airports named after george bush. Not the son but the father although the bush's actually live here in houston so transportation wise And they are actually connected to the city but by buses. Everybody drives in. Houston if you come the best thing for you to do if you really want to get around the city. I guess efficiently is to rent a car. There is a local bus service that it was like one or two that comes from it takes about him and only cost dollar twenty five cents to get from houston intercontinental downtown houston and then there is the eighty eight. I think it is now that goes from houston hobby into downtown houston and methodology and a quarter. But i would recommend getting a car because it's so easy to city is very large and getting a car is probably the best way to get around and then we're going to start. We can actually start downtown so once you get your car. You're jumping forty five and you head south into into downtown as you're driving into downtown you can see the city if you want. You can stay out by the airports airports Tells around there but if you come into houston you might as well come. Stay in the city center. You can stay downtown. Houston they have all all the major chains they here. There is actually a myriad married which has the pool in the shape of texas. So yeah i haven't gone there yet but it's actually quite cool. I've seen pictures of it and there's also the hilton which is across georgia. Lebron's convention thinkers houston is a big convention city when they have cooled show which these things anymore but when they used to have the show. You could not find a hotel room in houston and the city is about. I think we're up to seven and a half million people in houston. It is the fourth largest city in the union. So i would actually get downtown. i once. you're downtown There is discovery green and discovered green is actually a park. And it's right by the georgia brown Any literally sits between the myra one side and the hilton on the other side and off to the left of that is the minute maid park which is where the baseball team. The houston astros place. Now if one thing about maid park is if you're into trains and says very old city if you go to most of us cities you'll find a union station right right and most of them are still being used as stations while the one in houston is not it is now where when you go to the astros. That is the hall big hall that you normally have for stations. Dave turned that into the entrance to the ballpark.

"Labor Day on Monday, and so we have Ah, incredible rich history here in both Illinois and in the city of Chicago. Regarding the labor movement on Labor Day. In general, thier monologist dot com is a website Max colonel who has studied cities in history, and all that really cool stuff is here to reminisce and talk about the labor history in Chicago and beyond. Max. Ah, let's Ah let's let's talk about Ah The blue color sort of mentality that we have in this city eyes that tied to the labour movement, you think? Yeah mean absolutely. I think that you know, you think about whether it's images presented in film. It's the Blues brothers, which obviously they're musicians. They do They do reference their union card. That will not be a one point them. Yeah, they D'oh They famously on wonderfully, You know, I think it is. It's a It's a part of. It's a part of the city's identity. And you know, I I e having only been been in here since the mid nineties. You know, a lot of that has changed. Fairly quickly. Do you think about what constitutes a blue collar job? Right? You go down to the Southeast side to see the U. S X Steel. You know they're still re working on that site. But there's no there's no labours. It's a park. Yes, yeah, Among other things you think of what constitutes A blue collar job. You think of kind of the concentration of steps over, um, near last Westside like Teamster City. Um and kind of like, where is those where those people laboring? You think about the actual numbers and they're they're fairly small. Um, you know you you still you still have, you know certain? Industries in the city. You know, I always tell people sick I owe still big bass for food production produces more pork rinds, and I didn't know that I didn't know that that's amazing. Yeah, they're they're still there Still the these moments. I mean, you know, you think of other things, which is a variety of trade agreements, etcetera, you know, to buy goodbye volume candy industry, right? Ferrara. Rocks, but they blow up the Brocks factory for one of the Batman am so some of those things that you consider candy, working blue collar and definitely were people working with their hands. But you know, the other kind of The other Those other jobs. A lot of them just changed. I think this will be a challenge for labor here. Going forward labor unions and see already you're you're you're not. You're not, you know, leaping out Citing necessarily been this government lack of intervention. Too much intervention. But you know, he going up against algorithms. You know what do you you're going up against APS. Yeah, that's that's the kind of That's the kind of harder endure another show, But I think that but I think it is. You know people were we seek it out. I mean, people wanted, you know, they want to experience that kind of That blue collar kind of experience, And I think it's hard. I mean, I know it's harder to find. Yeah, you know, you think about kind of whether its associations with people going to a tavern or whatever, you know 2nd 3rd shifters. I mean, there's a lot of There's a lot of change, even the kind of those the social spaces right now you're more likely to find expensive tasting menus on up top bar That's open. So I think there's that there's that kind of shift in the change and declined those in those those professions or they or they happen. They're kind of their hidden from us, right? I always tell people I play some fascinating which you asked me kind of that question about there's always something new. I had never walked on foot around Elk Grove Village. Some people listening probably know that L grow village has one of the world's largest industrial parks. Mathis, right, so there's work going on out there near O'Hare support. Various interested, but you know, we don't really see it. You know, it's not, you know. Men and women out there. You know whether it's your kind of performing manual labor, physical labor, you know, I think the fabric of the city has changed much as well. You think about you know, over a third of the city is Hispanic, Latino land Next, you know that that work has changed a lot. To you know, you might think of blue collar workers being landscapers gardeners. Um, yeah, I know people crave it. I mean, people, you know, it's such a big thing. And you know this so well to three movies to song. Um And you know some industries. It's still their food processing and a few other places, but, you know Now Steele still encounter people I've still encounter people who want to want to see a stillness still now something like that. It's like, well, that's that's really hard to find in the city limits. Um, but there certainly people You know those people working his people? There's people out there doing all these jobs and I think of wealth building trades, You know. So those air still really, um Those were still really well, boss places where he might be worked like that. But those things that you think of, you know, if you know more stockyards. Steel mills is kind of you know, you can sort of see some of the railroad stuff if you go down to South Lumber Street after from railroad. Yeah, Maybe that might be trash passing. So don't Please don't want anyone thinking, right? But you're certainly you know, you could get a little sense of that when you know when I was in Union station two days ago, jumping on the Amtrak cone off one and try again. Young. You see, you know some people people doing track work inside the station and things like that, so it's still It's still there. There's just a lot less of it. Yeah, it's true. It's true, but I mean, I think to the rest of the rest of the world. Chicago has a very, very blue collar. You know? Ah, representation, You know, I think it's a date. I think people outside of Chicago think of us is a very blue collar city. Yeah. Oh, absolutely. I think there's that people identify. It was like they had identified with the You know the blues or kind of Maureen.

I have been speaking a lot recently about opera. This country being a remaining colonialist art form because so much of opera that we see in this country is the German French Italian repertoire in those languages telling those stories and here we are in America Retelling the stories over and over again and it seems like especially in our times now when there is so much to talk about and there is such a need for artists to be speaking about the kind of things that that we've taken on with this project and so much more. It seems strange to go into the privileged sphere of an Opera House and hear a story about nineteenth century. Italy There's something about that that feels so escapist And feels like it's a. It's trying to pretend like the situation out on the street in our daily lives. is not as dire as it really is So I think that that was for me. A real push to try and create a piece like like sweet land and one of the most important aspects of it was creating the conditions for collaboration To really flow something that would be not another iteration of a kind of hierarchical leadership But the idea that a more horizontal consensus based process would be something that I could offer a kind of antidote to some of the problems that we're talking about before we talk about the story and the music I wanna ask you about the venue it said in the La State historic park and this was native land. It was home to the San Gabriel Band of mission Indians then. It was the site of the Southern Pacific Transportation Companies River Station where migrants from around the world would disembark trains Ryan and now it said against the skyline of downtown Los Angeles next to a metro track next to the one ten freeway. There's like a little wine store across the street. It's got so much history. Why was it a good place for you to set the story to me when we were conceiving of this project we were thinking about the right site for where this this piece should take place and of course we started thinking about things like warehouses or alternative spaces but but you know still interior spaces and I was hearing from my collaborators over and over again how much The relationship to land with such a crucial aspect of what they wanted to explore with this piece and when it comes to that relationship with land it seemed to me that one of the one of the one of the places that that really hold so much of. La's cultural history and meaning. Is that sliver of land? That is now the state historic park. you mentioned it's a couple of its iterations but it had so many others for a long time. It was considered a Brownfield as if Meaning that they didn't think that anything could grow on it anymore because of how terribly it was maintained during industrialization during the railroad era So so thinking that. And it wasn't until Lauren. Bon came up with not a cornfield project. This really bold experiment in kind of replanting The land showing it's continuous fertility Before that people sort of abandoned it and thinking that that was the most important tongue village that it was the site of this crucial Spanish settlement that it was this a flood plain all of those things for a while were buried under layers of industrialization and thanks to Lauren and th thanks now to the park. It has It has this new life to it but those layers Still struggle to come out those voices that are still part of the archaeology that layering effect. That's in the land Still has a lot of voices that have been suppressed and a big part of what the opera was about was not to pinpoint any one particular language or one particular story to lift up but instead to think about and to invite the audience to contemplate Those stories that are in the land that were

"Whole of Union Station in Washington D C, which is the place to have an event beautiful beautiful structure, and the this is GAO. So you make some very very exciting announcements. Would you share those with all this here in America? I sure so this past November we were able to announce at our gala that the government of Poland donated ten million dollars towards our museum project. So one government ten one government ten million. And of course, from that from their perspective. The museum is going to be telling very important part of their national story. So you'll have you'll preparing to build a museum in DC. Tried it spend the long standing goal. All of the foundation to build a museum in Washington DC that would tell the story more than one hundred years more than forty countries. And of course, the story of one of the largest victim groups if not the largest victim group in the history of the world. And that's of course, those individuals those families those entire nation sometimes that were subjected to captivity slavery all manners of atrocities by political parties communist parties that trace their origin their DNA to the Bolshevik party in in Russia from nineteen seventeen because all of those regimes where of course, either trained inspired funded or directed by the Soviet Union. And it'll be a hub of international learning education memory about communism about socialism about the ideology of Marxism. But also the history the record. And some of the human rights challenges that we face today in the world's remaining five communist single party dictatorships, and that's in China, North Korea Laos, Vietnam and Cuba. And then of course, you know, developments from Crimea and eastern Ukraine to Hong Kong to Venezuela in Nicaragua show that just geographically and that that's at least one good measure geographically territorially the free world is literally shrinking in the first nineteen years of this century. And so we have to learn I think some of the lessons from the Cold War about how we can effectively come back the ideas, but also the material threats posed by communist parties in power. Otherwise, the twenty first century is going to look very different than it. Would if American leadership continued to foster the free enterprise rule of law system that we've mostly enjoyed in the free world since the Soviet Union collapsed in the last one that we have in this segment. What is your hope with the museum is your hope that all the former captive nations will contribute, perhaps some western nations? The winners of the Cold War will also be spending some money to help support you'll museum that is the hope and we've had a number of countries who either have already pledged given were are talking with us right now. Right. And of course, you know, the majority of the money will come from private individuals and companies and foundations at the end of the day. We're we're reminding ourselves of the role that we played confronting communist imperialism the. Entire idea of American leadership in the world, the entire idea of the free world versus the communist world, all of this was the result of America defending our values and our people against the threat of Taliban. Well, one of the most important institutions in this city. I think in the world is the holocaust museum, which is incredibly for those listeners who haven't visited Washington DC to see the holocaust museum, I strongly strongly urge you to do. So. It is it is the motion experience. It's powerful experience. How apt for that to be in this city as well? A similar experience that looks to all the black book of communism as you said is very clear more than one hundred million Shuman souls extinguished since nineteen seventeen just over one hundred years in the name of quote, unquote, quality injustice in the name of Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels. So not only must be remember role in winning that war. But we must never forget the countless souls lost. And also thank you for reminding us this isn't history. This is right now North Korea one of the most Stalinist regimes the world has ever seen, and it is still Cuba still has political prisoners on on on we all talking about and Smith executive director of the victims of.

We thought for episode nine that we can get you to wave a magic wand and change society now. So that we won't have what we've just described. Yeah. That's pretty cool. Actually, that's to me is the main point. The earthquake is inevitable. But the disaster is not and most of the damage could be prevented if we chose to do that before the amount. Out in the middle of the desert. There are two enormous tectonic plates grinding against one another pressure building today some of that energy will release, and we know a minute before the waves. Get twist that they're coming because we have earthquake early warning. Your shake alert goes off and says strong shaky to arrive in in sixty seconds. You think okay, where do I get to a place of safety ear in the tunnel at Union Station, you go when you sit down up against the wall way from there. I mean that the tunnels actually not a bad place to be there's nothing to fall on you from there. And we now get the magic wand that it's a nice strong tunnel. I'm just sit down and write it out your wife tax, you I love you got the alert meet me at Omar school, twenty five seconds. It's going to be very strong shaking. That's getting to you. Because we'll see that the ruptures getting in their everyone's phones are going off people running for cover a woman is braced against the wall next to you, you're terrified she grabs your hand. I guess it's finally happening. She says, you're not don't worry. She says we're going to be okay. So things will still fly through the air. I mean their stores in Union Station, and they're they're good. They're to go flying off the shelves. Those will not be permanently hooked down there. Trying to sell them. After nearly a minute the shaking stops. She stands up reaches out to help you you walk out of the tunnel together. So right there in front of Union Station will be one of the few places where we will see more damage because of historic structures that can only be retrofitted to life safety, but we won't see people badly injured by this a car crashed into a light pole. Maybe we won't have have traffic lights, and we'll have some confusion a souvenir guys card is overturned. A woman walks over to help expect to see quite a bit of fear and confusion because that human beings, and it's only we can't retrofit people. But the sewage pipes held the water mains to train stopped as soon as the alert hit elevator doors opened at the closest floor. Kids got under their desks and held on. No steel buildings soft story apartments or concrete buildings collapsed. Everyone's phone still works the mayor from under his desk calls the governor.

"Make your way outside of Union Station airs thick with dust. Stop lights are out. Traffic is jammed and it's loud. The people who ran when the earthquake hit or laying on the ground injured and they're holding their broken legs and twisted ankles. An aftershock hits. So we wanted to put people in the heart of that scenario and show him what it's going to be like, so they know what to prepare for. So even if people know on some level that this event could happen in the immediate future. But certainly in their lifetimes, they don't do enough to prepare for it. So what prevents people from not taking the next step and saying I need to do these five things before this happens. We have this thing called optimism. Right. And we actually have a whole episode episode eight we cover this at length. We developed optimism at the same time as we developed a sense of mortality that way. We get into cars. Even though we know that situation could be dangerous, but that same optimism is what keeps us from preparing. So I don't want to be a spoiler. But in the second episode comes out Jacob that you have very limited. If any earthquake preparedness at your own homes that fair statement. Not anymore. Okay. You're doing this at the time. I was doing it. Yes. When we were recording episode to that was absolutely true. My wife, and I had a very a come to Jesus moment about what our plan was. We have a new baby. So we have to kind of factor that in by episode seven, which is when we start to address this issue, you building a survival kit for my family, I still hadn't anything which was kind of crazy, and we get to dive deep into the psychology of why people don't do it. That was really fascinating. And applying it to myself, I thought was kind of disturbing in nineteen ninety two. And there was a seven point three magnitude earthquake out near yucca valley Landers quake, and I drove out there because I was assigned to cover the news. There was one immediate fatality from that earthquake. It was a three year old boy who is over I slumber party and masonry fell off a chimney and fell on his head. And because I was reporting I went to the coroner's office. And I saw the polaroid photograph of a sleeping bag and the bricks and the blood, and I didn't have kids at that point. But when I had kids, I did everything everything in our houses anchor down, and it was that one image that I always remembered is that part of what you're going after that idea of you put yourself in the story and visualize it that you then start to do something. Yeah. We want something people can hold onto you. I want you to really put yourself in the situation where imagine you have to walk fifteen miles a really common commute in Los Angeles. Imagine having to walk that home, and what you're going to see. So we want to put you in that situation to prepare you. So when these things do happen, you're a little bit more familiar, and maybe a little bit less afraid that was very similar to my turning point. And it wasn't that gruesome in that difficult, but we had someone visit our house and lay out here all the problems that I see your kid, by the way is just getting up and starting to walk and we'd just yanked his dresser a little bit. That thing was ready to topple right over. And I could just imagine him getting very hurt by that. And I was freaked out. Out. And so soon thereafter, we kind of went through and dealt with all that you have clearly worked very hard to make sure that the listener is kind of embedded in this story through a lot of the things that you do both musically. And just the way that the sound is coming at you. Why was that important? And what does that do in terms of the way the information that you're imparting listener is received one? I love sound design and I love action movies. So I wanted to create this immersive experience in sound is so powerful in doing that. It's one thing to say an ambulance is going to pass you by it's another thing to hear it happening. It's another thing to hear masonry crumbling and to have.
