"Transfer arm. That would actually pick up the test tubes. We need ingenuity like helicopters that would be scouting out the tubes, right? I guess more than the ones that we have there. The one helicopter that's there now, a Mars ascent vehicle, which will transport those samples into Martian orbit, and then an earth return orbiter that will launch an earth entry system capsule to eventually land somewhere in the Utah desert is where they're thinking about having it drop down. So the MSR mission, it's very complicated, right? There's all these different moving parts, but because of the likely significant scientific payoff of the mission, there are agencies like NASA that are willing to spend a great deal of money to make it happen. So the samples are going to be fantastic no matter what because they're going to give us a ton of data. They're going to give us a ton of geologic data and geologic history of Mars. Now also the samples will reveal, like I said, if Mars has the potential for life or had the potential to have some form of life on it. Now there are certain areas on Mars, there are specifically looking at like jezero crater, it's spelled JE ZERO jezero jezero, right, whatever, whatever floats your boat. There's a crater there that used to have water, a very long time ago, and there's a lot of sediment there, and they're thinking this is a great place to look because on earth, that's a great place to look. So they're just saying, you know, it's probably this is probably good because we find a lot of samples in places that are similar to that on earth. The first launch will involve the ESA's earth return orbiter, which will be responsible for the crucial task of collecting the samples from the Martian surface, and then finally bringing them back to earth. Now, the ERO will be equipped with its own rover that will explore the crater where the Mars 2020 perseverance rover landed back in February of 2021. The second one, the second vehicle, is expected to take place in 2028. This involves NASA, a NASA provided Mars ascent vehicle. This is what gets them off the surface of Mars, the MAV will launch the collected samples into orbit around Mars, where the ERO will collect them and return them back to earth. And the third one, like I said, is the ERO. That gets launched in 2031, which will go to Mars and then come back, and then eventually return the samples back down to the planet. Now the samples from Mars will be the first material that we've ever brought back from another planet. In this way, right? We've picked up moon rocks and everything. But actually going to another planet and having samples come back. Yeah, deliberate collection. That's right. Yeah, but a planet. I'm not talking about a moon. I'm talking about a planet. Something that has more of an atmosphere and like Mars, right? So this will provide scientists with so much important information that we need for what, because people are going to be going there at some point. It's going to happen. We are going to have boots on Mars, and we need to know a lot more about the Martian regolith. And I guess, you know, like think about this. If we find that there happens to be active microbial life on Mars, do we go to Mars? No. That's a question. That's a real, but I just find that fascinating because it's something worthy of debate. So this MSR mission, it's expected to cost around $7 billion. Now, I find that number to be extraordinarily low. For this level of complexity that they're describing here. And of course, it's going to involve the expertise and cooperation of many countries and organizations around the world. You know, I guess they're going to be having components built with many different places globally, which is always nice. You know, you want to see technology coming from other countries, not just from NASA. And I just think this is fascinating. You know, by 2031, we might be pulling back the majority or all of the samples that we took and imagine when that thing finally hits and the scientists get their hands on that. It's going to be very exciting. I think it's much more likely that we'll find evidence of ancient microbial life than living microbial life. Either would be fascinating although living obviously would be orders of magnitude. And we can be assured that none of the we would find is any contamination from anything we've sent up in prior missions. Well, we would have to evaluate for that. I mean, it would have to rule out contamination. It depends on how different it is. I mean, it would probably be if it was actually Martian life. It would probably be different enough that we could rule out earth contamination. But we'd have to specifically roll that out, yeah. Do you think it's a little creepy too? Like, you know, the idea, like imagine if they did, they found microbial life on another planet. Like I would be very scared of that, getting into our environment. Why though? Because if it's truly alien, it would be like completely incompatible, like two different computer languages. What if it has DNA, but it's Martian life, but it's related to earth life. Yeah, I was going to say, could it ever be, but something being truly quote alien, it's never going to be that far away because we're in the same solar system. Like we're still kind of dealing with the same building blocks. Yes, it could be different, but different completely different imagine if they had completely different base pairs and different DNA different proteins. But that doesn't mean they can't eat us or infect us though. We made of the same core materials. You guys have to think about the movie. That's a thing, okay? That documentary. Yeah. Exactly. Thank you. That's as bad as it can get. I'm not saying it's not likely, but it's possible. You can't, you can't discount it entirely. I'll give you that. Okay. There you go. Here's a practical question I have. These vials that the perseverance has been collecting sampling and dropping. There it is, the vials on the surface now of Mars. We have a way to find those things other than just sending some helicopter looking around for it. In other words, did they implant a chip or something in these vials? It is sending off a Beacon or a signal. We know where they are. Yeah, but how do we know when I can get blown around or, you know? I don't think anything really blows around on Mars, does it? That's a good question, I have not read anything to date. That there's a tracker in there, but you would think that there is. But it could be as simple as like a magnet. Something detectable. Or something that would be or reflector even, or something, that they'll be able to say, okay, that's obviously it. Go get it. I'm sure they thought of it. Yeah, I just haven't read yet about that detail and exactly what that technology is. Maybe they don't want to tell you so that it could other aliens don't go and collect it before we do. Carry you're too smart. These are trade secrets. We can't release to the public. Steve, you'll have to cut this out, you realize. All right guys, let me ask you a question. When you think of a T. Rex, what color is it? Oh, it's great. I mean, it is green. Like a lizard. Yeah. I think of my totally wrong. I can know that. I have, I have a collection of Carnegie dinosaurs, those scale model toys, and I'm thinking, I think there have been like three or four T rexes over the course, and it went from green to like a brown. I would like them to be orange though. Yeah, they didn't really get out of the box much with those.

"Loves a thing you do. So we're gonna post this video up on the bob and cherry Facebook and when you watch Dave Grohl playing the guitar and watching his little girl singing about being young, you will die a thousand times. How old is she? She's like 11 the look of love on his face. Like the awe of him just loving and being so proud of his child. And she's got a lot of rock, a rock girl voice at 11 and that's, that's pretty good. We carry me a few years ago and caramel was much, much, much younger. Her dance company performed to this song. They get a lyrical group dance to when we were young, and at the very end, they're wearing these beautiful flowing silver dresses, and at the very end, all of the dancers go still and carry me. It comes forward and does like a triple turn and ends the song. I had to be scraped off the floor of the auditorium and poured into my car. I bet. I was just beside myself. So you can hear the song as a breakup song, but man, when it's your kid, then you're like, let me photograph you in this light. You're never gonna be this way again. All right, I'm gonna go to the doctor now, and get some sedatives and post this up on the bob and shared Facebook. Bob and sharing. Instant access to the podcast, podcast, fun size, and more. With the free bob and sherry app. If you were not with us a little while ago, half an hour or so ago, bob accidentally called my mom by mistake. He thought he was calling our coworker Laura. They both have last names that start with Jay. And so, you know, I must have sent him the wrong phone number. So my mom gets up really early and she has a very specific routine. She gets up. She makes herself a little K cup. And she crochets baby blankets that she donates to the hospital and to the shelters. And she limits herself to a certain amount of blanket that she stitches every day because her life is very, very regimented. She's got a little bit of those CPD and she likes things orderly and she doesn't want to use up all of her baby blanket time in one day. She paces it out. So she's sitting there 6 30 in the morning, Utah desert time when the phone rings and she doesn't recognize the number, but she sees the area code and assumes it's something to do with me and it's bob. And they have this lovely chat. And bob realizes midway through that he's made this mistake and just decides because he knows that my mom lives alone in the desert that he's just going to lean into it and they're going to just have themselves a little hand session, which is why I talked with her so you know, I talk with her mother for about four minutes without realizing that it was not our associate in the show, who I very seldom talk to. She does the financials. And then all of a sudden, sheri's mom said, bob, do you know who I'm who you're talking to? That question, by the way, is very disturbing. Do you know who you're talking to? If you don't know who you're talking to, how messed up, are you? Uh oh. So she said to me, she said, I was confused because bob asked me about my farm. And I have never had a farm or lived on a farmer. He could live next through. So she said, I thought, what is, what is he talking about? She said, and I knew that bob knew that I did not live on a farm in Wyoming. He has to know, surely you've told him that I don't live on a farm in Wyoming. She thought I had totally lost it. I think she thought I totally lost it. I mean, just put yourself in her position. All of a sudden, somebody is calling you and they're saying, well, tell me about your castle. Have you sold the castle again? You're thinking, this person has now, he's done, I don't know. He's done mushrooms. One time too many, something is wrong with this guy. It was so it was so great because for my mom who likes things extremely orderly, she doesn't like surprises and unexpected things. You threw such an unexpected hysterically funny wrench into her day and she absolutely loved it. And that is a lesson to all of us that we should try to do something completely new and unique every once in a while. She said, she said, I would never have dreamed. In my entire life that I would start my day with a lengthy phone chat with bob Lacey, but there you go. I mean, she thought was the best. There was a time when Mother Teresa had passed away and I said, I've got the number of this bishop that was good friends with her and she said, let's see if we can try to get him on. So I called him and was able through a series of phone calls to be able to get him and he agreed to come on and talk with us about this living saint in our lifetime. After the phone call I called a friend of mine who's a bit of a jokester and the phone would answer. Hello. And I went hello. And we did this back and forth to each other. I didn't know I'd called the bishop back. And he was goofing along with me. It was the most bizarre situation. Well, you have to, you have to, you know, in the situation like I was in, if I just said, oh, I'm so sorry. I didn't help it didn't wake you up. We'll have a nice day. You know, that is rude. So I no, you did, and you know me. I hate chit chat. You did the kindest thing. And she said to me, she said, oh, you're gonna love this. She goes, boy, sweetie. That man is in the right profession because he does love to talk. I know how to do it. You did the right thing. You did the right thing. And she said, how long is his mother been gone? And it's the lick you miss talking to your mom so you thought you would talk to mine. It was just so precious. You did a great thing. You made her day and you gave her something so fun and different and I love it. And I think she's hoping that you'll accidentally call again. It's bob and we're Facebook friends.

"8 o'clock last night made himself a K cup of coffee. And was as pleased and delighted as if he had teleported from one room to the next. Absolutely delighted. I'm so surprised. I'm so surprised that, first of all, he was embracing a highfalutin new machine. Right. And not something that's classic. And is it just me? I don't want to offend the whole courage, you know, community here. But when we were at the old station and they had that keurig machine, the coffee's just never really tasted very good to me. It tasted antiseptic. I don't know, there was something about it. Loves it, loves it, loves it, is he moved, he rearranged, I don't even know the life I'm living right now. I don't even recognize this man. He rearranged the counter so that it could be just where he thought it should be. And he Googled and studied how much coffee to put in the reusable filter and what coarseness to grind it to. What vortex what time slip did he fall into in the Utah desert that this is the man that I brought home? Do you think the kurd coffee tastes as good as regularly brewed coffee? I think it depends on the coffee. That's in the cup. Not every coffee is going to be any good. I think it just depends on the and by the way. By the way, he did this last night. So I've had one K cup of coffee from the new curry machine. I was in the shower this morning. This is how weirdly amped up about this is. I was in the shower this morning. He bursts into the bathroom, flings open the shower door, and now I'm expecting some filthy suggestion or invitation. Of course. Right. Right. Flings open the shower door and says to me, am I boiling some water or are you having a K cup? Is that what it took to get you to stop open? Crack machine. You're making progress, aren't you? You're making naked. I'm naked and covered in soap and we're discussing whether you want me to have a cake hopper. Yeah, he is really, really, really sky high about this. I'm afraid to go back out there. And what else will he come home with a small white dog that he refers to as my first sister? One other way she can have an influence on him. I'm serious. I now have a K cup machine in my kitchen. Something I've dodged all of this time because he are you going to embrace it? Is that what you're going to do coffee wise and just get good coffee? Because the coffee that we were getting at the old station. That was not Starbucks by any stretch of the imagination. No, no. And by the way, it all tasted the same. The coffee at the old station was good enough for employees to steal and resell it flea markets. But not good enough to drink. I don't think. I totally agree. I drink the house brand Costco coffee 'cause it's really Starbucks just in a different bag and cheaper. So yeah, I'm gonna try that. I mean, I don't know, bob, I don't know that I'm gonna be as excited about the K cup as my husband. But I mean, not just the man. The man was lit up like it was Christmas and somebody finally gave him a model train set. That's good. That's good. And you got it for $3. Yeah, we did that Warren Buffett math on that. Bobby sherry. Bob and sherry go. All right, for all of our fall lovers. You don't even have to pretend anymore. It's officially fall. You can get a pumpkin spice latte in each hand and chug it while you're putting on your boots and sweaters. Let's take it to the holderness family hidden.

"So about ten feet long, about four and a half feet high, it's believed that somebody will step up and I know they will, buy it for a half a $1 million. And put it in their living room. Now, don't think of your living room. Think of one of those living rooms like you see an architectural digest or on one of those shows that shows how the Kardashians live. You walk into some mammoth living room and over there perfectly placed by a designer, is a freaking dinosaur. If I had my tens and hundreds of $1 million, I would not buy Tom Brady's Super Bowl ring for a quarter of a $1 million. No interest in that at all. However, to be able to have a great big ass house, and in the living room is an actual dinosaur, are you kidding me? That's me. If I had crazy lottery money, that's the kind of stuff I'd blow it on. Yeah. And you know, it's just bones. So it will work with any motif, right? And I know you're wondering, do the people who own the land own the dinosaur on the land. I don't know if this is a federal thing or a state thing, but one of the people who lives near my mom in the Utah desert. This was when livian care me were babies. He was out plowing a field, getting ready to plan it, and they unearthed a T. Rex. And he turned that portion of his farm into a freaking dinosaur museum and discovery center because he owns that dinosaur. So the state couldn't take it away. That's great. Here's what I don't know. Like, I don't know if these things are regulated by state laws or federal laws or whatever, but I think if it's on your land, it's yours. Unless it's Jimmy Hoffa and then you'd have to probably turn over. You couldn't have the Jimmy Hoffa adventureland. I don't think. But a dinosaur fossil is at least in that one place for that one farmer. That is his T. Rex. You know, there's nothing in this story and you know me too well. I wanted to know, did the Joneses or whoever they are that on that land did they get do they get the half a $1 million? And I am not sure. I think it is a state thing, and I hope they get the money. I can't believe that you think this iguanodon, this beautifully preserved iguanodon is only going to sell for half a $1 million. I think it's you know what? Way more than that. You know, that's what they're guessing. That's what they're guessing, but I agree with you. It seemed low to me for. You talk about a piece of history. Listen, in your house. I've seen Kanye pay more for a ripped up sweatshirt. You know, from which though it's that French, one of those design houses. I mean, this is half a million for a ten foot long four foot tall, beautifully preserved iguanodon, get out of here with that. All right, straight ahead. I'm not crying and you're not crying, but your little doggy best friend might be in your heart's about to melt. It's next it's bob and cherry. You read it once. I don't believe that. And then you're ready to get. I can't believe this. It's bob and cherries. I believe this. I believe this. I'm about to tell y'all something just amazing about dogs. And I know I say that every week, but every week we're learning something freaking amazing about dogs. This is brand new information out of the journal current biology. It was just released. Your dog cries when it's reunited with you after you've been separated. It cries with joy and relief to have you back. I just had this experience with my dog Sam Nash. I was away for longer than I've been away in forever because we had gone to Dallas for work and then my husband met me in Dallas and we went and visited my mom and drove around the west. So I come home and one of Kevin's son stayed at the house, Sam's favorite other person. So I knew he was fine and he was happy with Russell and everything was great. I come home and he's asleep in his bed and he can't hear or see so he doesn't hear me come in. So I go over to his bed and I sit down next to his bed and he's just snoring away. I put my hand on his head and I petted him and said Sam and he startled awake and realized it was me and began like letting out all these screams and jumping up and down and crying actual tears so this is this is according to this thing that I write in current biology, dogs cry with positive emotion, their little bodies get flooded with oxytocin and their tears don't fall the way human tears do, but their eyes well up and fill with tears in response to strong emotion. And the biggest emotion that makes dogs cry is being reunited with their people. Dogs produce tears in situations that humans would consider happy and they're not sure yet of dogs ever produced tears when they reunite with other dogs, which should be interesting, like you have two dog friends and they're separated. You know, for whatever reason, they get back together. Do they get emotional to be reunited with a dog or a cat friend? They don't know that yet, but it turns out that dogs get so emotional when they reconnect with you that they get weepy. They are so much more than we deserve. They are the finest things on this planet. They have such dignity. They really do dogs have such dignity. Mary was away over three weeks. And when I picked her up at the airport, I said, I just can't wait to see the reaction of Finn to your coming in because he has been so depressed. He used to come in and hang out with me while I did the show, and then he'd go in with Mary, where she works the other side of the house and hang out with her. She used to say, come on, it's time to go to work. After about two days, he stopped coming in to see me, and was just, he was actually, he'd find a corner, part of it was the thunder that was going on, which scared him. It's just been a terrible thunder season where I live. But after about four or 5 days, he was all by himself all day long. She walked in. And he went crazy just like I thought, and she just stood there. She said, I'm not going to encourage it. I'm going to let him calm down. But I looked at him, and he was doing what you were describing. I didn't check his eyes because I've read this article too. But I listened to him. And he was going, just like that. And the next day, immediately he went off and sat next to her at work. Yeah. You should have looked at his eyes. I know. You should have looked at his eyes. To see tears. They even like, they even did a test on people. They showed people a bunch of pictures of dogs faces with them without tears in their eyes. And when people saw dogs with teary eyes, they responded way more strongly and positively. To those dogs. So basically, dogs shed tears of joy. So the next time any of us, any of us have been away for any amount of time and we walk in and you know, you're tired and you just want to get a drink and get settled in and your dog is looking at you weeping tears of joy. You got to drop down to the floor and love on that baby. Yeah, you know, the only other experience I had like this, I had a previous quite a long relationship, and I know that when I was away for like a week or two and I'd come through the door, she would have tears in her eyes. Yeah. Let's not question those tears too much because then our feelings get hurt. Yeah. Sometimes it's better to just say, oh, look, that woman is crying and not get too much into the why. Why do you want to bring yourself down? I think that's a good point. You know, sometimes ignorance really and deny really is bliss. We're gonna post this happy tears of joy dog news up on the bob and cherry Facebook for you and straight ahead. Buddy. Discovery plus

"Okay, let's get things started. It's the bobbin cherry show with bob. I'm a sharp dressed silver tongue devil. And sherry. She's scary and mean, and I don't ever want her to be in charge of me. And now broadcasting from the palatial bob and sherry studios, it's bobbin sherry. Welcome back to the bobbin sherry show, we're all back from a little vacation and the Labor Day holiday. I got in last night, my husband and I have been driving across America together in his truck for several days. We had a little visit with my mom, which my mom enjoyed very much because we came in and we made things dirty, and that gave her something new to clean. That was a good time for all. And we in Utah, in Utah. So we drove through, we drove through part of Texas. We went to Santa Fe, we went up into saint George. The Rain, a lot of the things that we would have liked to do were really impacted by The Rain and the flooding that they've had in the southwest. There was a period a couple of weeks ago where they closed Zion national park and Moab to, but where my mom lives in the Utah desert, there's a state park nearby, and it's filled with, it's like when you go there, you park your car and you walk 20 feet and you squint your eyes and you might as well be on Mars. It's all red rock and the land as far as you can see are these black twisted lava tubes from ancient volcanic activity. If you're ever in the saint George area where of course High School Musical was filmed, shout out wildcats forever. If you're ever in the saint George area, this park that I'm talking about is called snowy creek canyon and you go up to it and in the summertime it's so hot in the desert where my mom lives that like you'll get out of the car and you'll whip your iPhone out of your pocket to take some pictures, but you better move fast because in less than a minute, you'll get a message on your phone screen that says iPhone is too hot, it needs to cool down. Literally leaving your iPhone in your car with the sun shining on it. It's less than a minute. It comes from your pocket. So you better take your pictures fast. But as far as you can see, is all red rock and black lava tubes and scrubby desert plant life and blue blue blue sky. It is so incredibly beautiful and foreboding and mysterious. So yeah, we had some we had some pretty good adventures out there in the desert and then on our first long wait. The first time you see the desert, if you're not from that part of the world, you know, you've seated on western movies and you get an idea of what it's like, but it's not until you actually see it. I can remember the first time I flew out to Phoenix where my silver best friend Jeff was working at the time. And we went on a road trip and I still have the picture. Somehow we found somebody who would take the picture, the two of us kneeling in front of a big Sequoia cactus. And it's the most awkward thing that you've ever seen. Two 23 year old guys kneeling in the desert next to an exotic looking cactus. A saguaro cactus. With the arms. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Yeah, with the arms, yeah. Yeah, that's right. But it's just strange looking. I mean, who kneels down next to a cactus, right? But we were so excited to see what, especially me, because I had never been there before. It was like, I'm gonna have my picture taken. With a cactus. It's so exotic. Like I was so excited for Kev to see, 'cause it's one of my, I fly when I go to visit my mom, I fly to Las Vegas, and I run a car and I drive from Vegas to saint George, it's about an hour and 50 minutes or so. You leave so Vegas is a glittering, a literal glittering oasis in the desert. When you cross and max know this because he's done this trip too. When you cross the Vegas city limits, you enter a grayish white parched lunar landscape that you'll drive in for about an hour. And I mean you don't want to break down at night, you can't see your hand in front of your face. In the daytime, you look outside and you go, I hope we have water in this car 'cause we're all gonna die. Then you come into Mesquite, Nevada, which is a little gambling town, like on the border of Nevada, Utah. You even cross through Arizona a little bit there for a minute. So suddenly there are like golf courses and fountains and swimming pools, and all of these casinos and the world's largest cannabis dispensary. It's the size of a freaking Costco it's unbelievably big. And then you cross out of Mesquite and you go into the gorge, the gorge, which divides Mesquite from saint George, is one of the most breathtaking drives you will ever have. You fully expect to see a T. Rex come around any corner. It's red rocks, blue sky, Russian water, and then you're in saint George. And I've been telling him about this drive for years. Like, I can't wait for you to do this drive. I can't wait for you to see. You go from the Vegas strip and all the lights and casinos to the moon to the oasis of cannabis and gambling to the dinosaur gourds to saint George, it this country is so beautiful. It's a shame we hate each other so much because I mean this country is just amazing. I know. So yeah, it was a very fun trip. Glad to be back and can I just tell y'all? I have heard all the classic rock and outlaw country, any girl from Stan. I have learned so much Willie waylon. Merle, George and Tammy, Leonard scanner, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin.

"For at least special. Trisha that's an inspirational story. If we get your photograph, can we put it on our web? Absolutely. All right, we'll have that in the notes for this week's show at Rick Steves dot com slash radio. Trisha, you're an inspiration. Thanks. And Becky, can you describe more rock for us? What park is that? And what would it be like for the rest of us who aren't going up there with such a triumphal approach with new knees and new shoulder and surviving a stroke that? It is insecure. Kings park, they're kind of joined as one park now. It is a strenuous hike. It's not one that you just kind of, you know, anybody would enjoy going to do. So it's got some elevation to it. You've got to be in shape or very motivated like Trisha. Exactly. Exactly. All right, hey, well, Trisha, I hope you get up there again someday. Thanks. Thanks for all your good work. You bet. Thanks for your call. I know. Bye bye. That is so cool. That's a great story. Clearly, parks connect us with nature and they give us those personal moments in so many different ways. After talking with Trish, I'm just thinking so many people are listening and so many people can be inspired by embracing our park system, which is just down the road from so many of us. Let's say you who wrote a book on national parks in the United States could take a big city person, a person who had never hopped from stone to stone across a stream, someone who'd never glaciated down a bank of shale, somebody who'd never felt that king of the mountain thrill atop his or her own just conquered peak. What national park experience would you give that person? I think I would want to take that person to the Grand Canyon. Because you get to the edge of that canyon and everybody's seen pictures, but you get there in person and it's huge. And then you hike down in it, and it is a whole different world. And you get to touch all those different layers and then finally get down to the river. Okay. And it's just impressive. And then you call your helicopter and it takes you out. And then you have to climb up, don't you? You do have to climb back and realize the immensity of nature and you feel pretty good about yourself when you've done that. And then you remind yourself that yes, national parks, America's best idea. Thanks for writing USA national parks and best wishes with your future research. Thank you.

"News I'm Adriene Florida Big news in the media world today After 18 years this is my final Fox News Sunday Fox News anchor Chris Wallace made that surprise announcement this morning during Fox News signature weekend political show I want to try something new to go beyond politics to all the things I'm interested in Wallace's announcement foes reports that he had voiced his objections to Fox News brass over some of the network's political coverage including his NPR first reported last month coverage of the January 6th attack on the U.S. capitol NPR media correspondent David falkin flick joins us now to tell us more David welcome Kate ignorant how are you Fine thank you I understand that Chris Wallace is leaving Fox for CNN Is that right Tell us more about the move and what he'll be doing there Well CNN has this planned streaming service that's supposed to debut sometime in early on in 2022 CNN has revealed after the announcement that you just played the clip from that Wallace will be hosting a weekday show over there but it's a venture into the unknown to CNN's a little bit late to the streaming game And yet can pay big numbers to get a big name like a Chris Wallace who's had such a long and storied career in broadcast journalism to help try to shore it up Tell us a bit more about Wallace's background He moved to Fox News 18 years ago already having established himself as a journalist with considerable stature at other networks right What was his impact at Fox You know Chris Wallace is one of a small number of folks who came in with independent stature to Fox prior to his time at the network time at perhaps most notably at NBC White House correspondent he hosted meet the press And on Fox he represented somebody they could always point to They used him as a shield the network brass off And somebody they could point to who would ask tough questions of Democrats and Republicans liberals and conservatives alike and who seemed to just be asking the tough questions that needed to be posed to hold the powerful accountable Well we mentioned that his announcement today follows reports that he had objected to some of Fox News recent political coverage What can you tell us about that Yeah well you could occasionally see flares of this on the air where he might take to task people like the host of Fox and Friends that is Steve doocy and Brian kilmeade for some of their coverage of president Obama or some of their embrace of president Trump and try to distinguish conspiracy theories from hard facts and reported knowledge But you also began to see him internally raise objections most recently with Bret baier the political anchor for Fox really throwing down the gauntlet on this three part documentary series done by Tucker Carlson promoting lies in conspiracy theories about the January 6th insurrection at the U.S. capitol And they said you know this can't be allowed you guys have to rein him in One person with knowledge of those talks said to me you know there has to be some signs that things will change or there will be consequences There are no signs that things would change And just a few weeks later we're seeing one of those consequences Chris Wallace announcing he's going to head across the way over to CNN So how significant is his departure for Fox News right now I think you'd have to acknowledge that Cummings and goings and transitions are part of the to be expected at major television news operations But I think that this is a signal and it's being taken that way I can tell you to people inside Fox who are taken by surprise It surprised the Washington bureau It surprised people even in the control room running Chris Wallace's show this morning that there isn't really going to be a place where somebody of stature can independently walk a different line that raises uncomfortable questions for those who want to believe wrongly that former president Trump was somehow denied an election in 2020 It's saying that for reporters who want to walk the straight narrow at Fox it's going to be a very lonely time indeed And I think we've got to see how Fox reacts to it who they hire and how they handle themselves But the message couldn't be clearer That was NPR media correspondent David falkin flick David thank you You bet Last year a researcher found a map in the national archives that pointed to a unique monument One for a Japanese American man killed by guards in a Utah internment camp during World War II A survivor of the camp was ready to pay for its archeological excavation but wasn't given the chance Now Japanese Americans with ties to the camp they're trying to find healing Sonya Hudson with member station Ku ER reports The former topaz internment camp sits in the remote Utah desert more than a hundred miles south of Salt Lake City About 11,000 Japanese Americans were held here from 1942 to 45 Now on a recent December morning researcher and writer Nancy ukai walked among the greasewood shrubs on the cracked earth here where a dozen of her relatives were imprisoned along with 63 year old James wakasa We're retracing the route that James wakasa took after dinner on Sunday Night They rule 11th 1943 and he was walking his dog It was nearing sunset when a guard shot wakasa in the chest just a few feet from the fence The soldier was later acquitted in military court The government's first explanation was that he was crawling through the fence Then they acknowledged he was several feet away from it facing the guard Stories flew around the camp that he was deaf and maybe couldn't hear the guards warnings But some accounts suggest he wasn't The image of him as this old deaf man who was a bachelor and a chef but he had a full life He traveled a lot in his barrack They found Mexican pesos He lived in New York I think a lot of that humanity was lost in the retelling of the story Camp officials let the prisoners hold a funeral But it wasn't at the site where Casa was shot They wanted So a group of them then built a monument there made of a large stone which camp officials ordered them to destroy But in an act of defiance they buried it instead Last year ukai found a map that showed where wakasa was shot and therefore were the monument was Shortly after she published an article about it a pair of archeologists went to the site and found the top of it sticking up out of the ground that was like oh my gosh this message from the past which represents civil rights defiance resistance felt incredible Masako takahashi was born at the concentration camp and now lives in the San Francisco Bay Area She wrote to the woman who runs the camps museum saying she'd be happy to fund ceremony and archeological excavation One or two business days later she wrote me back saying oh we had it dug up this morning It was a slap in the face It felt like a combination of grief and rage Museum board president Jane beckwith says she thought they were doing the right thing because the monument's location had been made public by the archeologists when it was revealed it made us really panic Vandalism out here is pretty common And we felt like if that happened that would be really a tragedy But takahashi says the hasty excavation could have damaged the monument It could have writing or carving on the front of it And there could have been gifts or tokens left at the burial site flowers incense we don't know because when we will never know maybe Back with now acknowledges the way they removed the monument wasn't right We've apologized that we moved it to swiftly If people wanted to see it removed we should have given them that opportunity Earlier this month takahashi and a group of 7 other former prisoners and descendants from the Bay Area visited the camp The group stood in a semicircle next to the original barbed wire fence wrapped tightly in coats to stay warm in.

She said quote. We really want buttery soft fabric. The the quote goes on. My vagina has to breathe which you know mormonism you know that like addressing a comment that has the word vagina in it to the profit is. That's that's a special moment. I mean he was a medical doctor so he has encountered the word before he does. Vaginas exists with the tradition of the mormon church has never been to actually care about. The woman's lived experiences so for a woman to actually ask that they care about what are you know because these things are cumbersome and apparently you know it depends on what shape you are but they can shave and they can feel gross and they can feel awful and you know it might behoove them to actually ask some folks what what their experience of the temple garment is and maybe beg jesus to let them make it a little bit more comfortable and bring them out of the era of pantaloons bloomers. You're basically in bloom. Do you know that it is no longer eighteen thirty. Are you aware of this fact. Actually funnily enough in the eighteen hundreds they were even worse all all the way to the wrist and ankle and will in the utah desert. Not great so yeah there you go i who knows basically what what do we anticipate will happen here. Probably this woman will get executed anything and then two months. After she is officially kicked out of the church permanently the church will announce the they in their magnaminity mag. How do you say magnanimous magnanimity. There you go are actually going to Give you more comfortable garments. Yeah that's that tends to be the thing. They won't apologize to anybody. They won't ever admit that they've done anything wrong. And they will definitely punish people who speak out especially if the new york times happens to pick it up. Oh my god. That woman ultimate sin. She's she's going a little too high profile. Yeah that kind of funny because like the church did release a video couple years ago exist. That sort of was showing the guy like the garments are sort of laid out on a table right show..

"Hello welcome back to the show. My name is matt and i am. Ben joined as always by our super producer. Knoll the alien brown. Oh yeah the alien outcast in here this this afternoon. So ladies and gentlemen today we are going all the way out to utah as many of you know were located here in atlanta georgia. And the reason we're going to utah's because there are some things that happen when you're out in a a large open area like many of the places in utah that you might see something in the sky. You might see something that you don't really see on the ground that you can explain. That's the reason we're going out there because there is one particular place that that some of these things tend to happen. Ben and we've been getting lots and lots of people on twitter on facebook all over the place saying you guys have to cover this location right. Yeah we've checked out a lot of the youtube comments. I've seen this stuff on facebook and twitter asking us to cover something that is legally known as the sherman ranch as matt said it is located in a place called unit all county about four hundred eighty acres of ranchland a little bit southeast of a place called ballard utah but you perhaps know it better by its more. Famous internet moniker. Skin walker ranch. Oh yeah and out here. There are all kinds of alleged things that happened from cattle mutilations to ufo sightings of various kinds lights in the sky sometimes stuff that happens closer to the ground. Sure you'll also hear. Also your other anecdotes about So-called sensing a presence. Telepathic intrusions poltergeists stuff again all anecdotal but before we dive into that. Oh and that's what we're doing by the way. Flays jones spoiler alert. We're looking some of the fact and fiction here now matt you like. You hate this stuff. No no i do not hate this stuff. I just want it to be real and i want someone to capture something and when it's just a human being most of the research i've done on this You've done the bulk of it but a lot of the research. I've known it's just a person talking to another person like this and telling a story about what they've experienced. Okay well i didn't mean to pigeonhole you by saying you hate it. No no. I certainly don't hate it. I i really liked the ideas but it. It hurts me intellectually when someone is trying to convince me zo hard. This thing happened. But they have absolutely zero empirical evidence or yeah zero zero universally accepted. Okay charlie go way to qualify that. So that's what we're gonna do today. Ladies and gentlemen we're going to catch you up on a little bit of one. Oh one about skin walker ranch or the real name the sherman ranch and then we're ultimately going to end on asking you the same questions. And maybe if we're lucky. Somebody in or around ballard. Utah will give us the skinny these stuff. They don't want you to know about this location. So let's look at the history at the The history of this at least as far as the paper trail goes is relatively recent in comparison to other You know so-called hotspots for this kind of activity. The first i commend reports about the sherman ranch are found in a publication called the utah desert news. it's out of salt lake city. This was written by a guy named zack van. Dyke in e. y. c. k. Not no relation to david around nineteen ninety six and that wasn't the only time it was mentioned. That's right so we were out here. You know exploring the olympics that year and out there on the other side. There's some crazy stuff going down at the sherman ranch now. This was later mentioned in las vegas. Mercury this was also mentioned several times by george knapp. I believe george. Knapp is a person who wrote in the mercury. Yeah he was a co host of a show. That i personally really enjoy. I don't know about you called coast to coast. Am which we have mentioned briefly before on this on this show. So yeah the This guy doesn't just write a couple of things he really digs in and makes this a something identifiable with him which has will learn is going to be important later. However if you are to believe the unofficial histories of i think there's a retired schoolteacher and then there's a retired military official of some sort. If you're to believe their stories than reports of cattle mutilation in this area. This rough area go back for decades at least and allegedly released mostly. How much of this is true. Allegedly these stories tie into something much much older. That's right the legend of skin walkers. This is really cool stuff here. This is kind of this. Is the stuff that you were really interested in right. This is this falls into the folklore area where you've got native american groups who believe that there is this thing called the skin walker which is essentially a shape changer. There are a lot of different types of these. We've talked about like hanthropy a lot in in past episodes about where wolf's who This is kind of kind of similar to that with a couple of important differences. One of the biggest ones is that the skin walker can choose to change shape rather than having the moon kind of effect change right so the full moon doesn't everything to do with skin walker. Just goes okay. it's time change. The skin walker can also change into any animal given whatever circumstance they find themselves in such as Let's say they've got the pelt of a wolf just to use the like hanthropy example they can then change into the wolf. Then you can use any other interchangeable animal. Their.

"Here with us today from Exchange Resource Group LLC out of Colorado. And we are discussing the 10 31. So let's go back in. All over. Let's stop. Let's start where we stopped, So I don't miss anything. No, Let's back up. 11 step We're talking about 180 days. And within that 180 days. You must close on one of those new properties you've identified. Now you ask about the identification rules that the I R. S so typical with the governmental agency. They kind of aim you in the direction you want to and if you want to vary from that they make it more difficult than more difficult than than they make it impossible. So with identification. If you identify you can identify up to three properties. And the only limitation is that they must be located. In the United States, the American Virgin Islands or Guam. And we actually months ago picked up an exchange in Guam and those are rare, but, um And it can be any real estate asset and it can be any value as long as you identify three Okay. Wow. Okay. Wish to identify more than three. Then you run into what is called the 200% rule. Which says If you identify more than three, you can only identified 200% of what you salt Sort of Growth factor. Mm. If I cannot be more than 200% of what, your salt, and then of course, they make it impossible or relatively impossible and say if you violate that rule. Then you must close on 95% of what you identify it in order to have a pallet exchange and that's I got to tell you in 26 years. I've never seen anybody accomplish that. So the reality is we tell people look at you've got 45 days. Go out. Do your research two years investigation Do your negotiation and on day 44. Email us A copy of that. Letter at 45 the identification form. Um And Move forward in that fashion, so Now you can go under contract at any point in time. But you can't that the dates are all closing date to closing date. And I misunderstood and the beginning I thought it was. You know, the after that 45 days, That's when I won 80 started. So this is really nice to understand its closing and closing. Right? No, it's okay. I was completely 45 1 35 or a total of 108. Okay. 1, 30 pockets. Yeah, but I thought that I thought that second number started at the end of the 45. So, um The man. I mean, it's simple. Closing the closing. Yeah, that's not forming. And the IRS works off whatever dates on that on that settlement statement because that settlement statement is prepared by a third party, usually the paddle companies, sometimes an attorney. And who you know, collects all the information and transfers. The risk of losses is the magic word. What moment did risk of lost path on the property? Um, for that defines ownership. You know, One of the good things about my lack of knowledge is that I've never advised. Anybody I've always been here is the number you know, and and you know, when people call the first thing that your agency's understanding There's no stupid question. It's just something you don't have an answer to And The only I guess the only dumb question to be the one you don't ask, because then you don't have an answer. So by all means. You know, let's explore the possibilities and see how this works best because with each case, there's a little twist on it, You know, and There's almost always a little first. Okay, I'm I am always copied on all the emails with my clients with your company and always copied and so I see the the communication and Than exceptional service. My clients have always been very happy. So, um it's our It can be scary and I would say it could quite a penalty and it's not abide by Absolutely. And believe me, we understand that, um So that's why you know our our most time consuming element probably is not the preparation of all documents, but is in fact Raising the clients comfort level going forward, because if if you're not comfortable and you don't understand what's taking place Then we're not doing You know, we're not doing you a service. So let's talk about it, but let's walk through it. Let's make sure that everybody is comfortable with where we're at. Alright right now. The next rule, as we go down to the sixth is There. Taxpayer that sells must be the taxpayer of advise. And the IRS doesn't care. What's your name is they care what your number is? And so for the vast majority of people that their social Security number And the and there's a reason for that. And basically, here's the explanation. When you close the transaction, and and we'll we'll just said you're at your neighborly type title company. They are required by federal law to assure you what's called a 10 99. 10 99. Then they give you a copy of this in a 10 99 50 rs. Hey. I R. S Him and her husband just made $400,000 on the sale of this property. Okay? And They send that to the IRS to the big computer out in the middle of the Utah desert someplace. And then when you purchase a property At the end of the year when you file your tax returns. Your tax preparer is going to attach to your tax return What is called an 88 24. In the 88 24 says that big computer Hey, computer. Ignore that 400,000, because look They bought this. All right, and it's and it's those two numbers don't match perfectly. That computers Realistically is going to spit out. Some type of report says to a human being.

Acceptable is not an acceptable amount of time. Out of bed. so i just With emi s. such a big part of it is distortive sensory overload Being really hyper sensitive to know as and light. And i imagine it's can be hard to put words to it but fewer to describe like what it feels like to have light come in an in a way that feels uncomfortable. What is the. What's the feeling the physical feeling that that doesn't feel pleasant. I mean if you've ever had a bad concussion or a hangover That sort of similar sort of the concussion post concussion phase is probably the closest where just you know Your brain just can't handle it. Had some you know it's can be quite excruciating. The same with a noise like right now. You know i'll be. I'll be sitting in my living room. And i'll see my wife outside and i know that she's about to open the door but it still can't prepare me the second that door opens. And there's a bit of a screech and not noise. You know it's like this little moment that my body goes into shock just like the nervous system being totally overwhelmed or something. No one's quite sure it just feels like too much. It's too much mason. Spent most of his time outdoors. Before he was diagnosed with emi cfs. He first started rock climbing as a kid growing up in massachusetts but he didn't get serious about it until he moved out to colorado for college eventually mason dropped out of school to focus on climbing. He worked at yosemite and took on odd jobs so he could climb as much as possible and his dedication paid off at twenty. Three mason was signed by. Eddie bauer he. Laughingly called it a gravy train that paid for his climbing trips all around the world. From about the time. I was eighteen to twenty nine solid. Ten years climbing was was my life. Yeah i really something. I'm grateful for his. I i really got to to live all my climbing dreams. What for you when you were climbing. What drew you to it. Why did you want to dedicate so much of your life to it. I'm not really sure. I think A lot of things. I love being outside.

Sheep in the utah desert and spotted this. I think it's about twelve foot. High shiny metal monolith there amongst the red rocks and for a while. It was exciting. Because i think there was. There was some intimation that might be a an unknown work. By the great scope to joan mccracken. He created his planks in his columns. These great shiny minimalist objects. Which have this have a mystical power to stand in front of them. They sort of reflect you but you kind of lose yourself in them and so everybody was very excited about that quite quickly. he's gallery said we're actually no. It's not by him.

Brexit camp owner is deal and that remains a possibility but how autrey be affected to find out i asked the writer and art market specialist ivan question and former. Mvp current chief executive of the british chamber of commerce in brussels daniel donaldson daniel before we talk specifically about the art trade and brexit's effects. Let's let let's get a state of play. Where do you see the negotiations now. Well i'm actually still pretty positive. I think actually more or less the deal is done. The question now is how will that date is choreographed. On both sides of the channel to ensure the politically they can get through on both sides. So i actually think the deal was probably more or less agreed at the start of the week. The question now is the uk gay some concessions on northern ireland earlier in the week. I think that was the first stage. The prime minister met with commissioner of on the land on wednesday night. And i think that also was the next stage of of Of this i think you will find that. The eu will grant some concessions on the level playing field over the weekend and the uk will grant some concessions on fish. I'm then. I think we will more or less dale semi. That's the feeling that the Getting in brussels now this could all still Blow up You know the politics of this is still very very delicate. But i think contrary probably what you you see in in some of the media online. Pretty confident that we're still on course for a deal early next week. What do you make these contingency announcements from the that. We're talking on thursday lunchtime in the uk and this morning. The have set out some some aspects of sort of contingency planning. I suppose the portents of that suggests that that no deal was more likely but do you think that's a bit of a smokescreen. Then i think the you is just covering it. It's back because it did the same thing before march last year when when there was the first deadline anthony e you needs to make sure from its point of view that certain things can continue in the case of no deal so for example. Airline routes can continue. Some of these sort of things need to be done so these are more or less the same contingency measures that they put in place just over a year ago when we had that first potential Deal situation. i'm i do think also that You know given the fact that this is going roy down to the wire at this puts a little bit more pressure on the uk to make sure that you know if they were gonna be concessions made. They need to be made very soon. Okay i've what do you think the chief concerns of the art trade are what what information do they need. And what guarantees. They need for this to be something that will stop panic and allow them to continue to trade in the way that they would like to. So i've actually been speaking to people on the ground on what we've been getting a lot. Actually in the market media is A lot of detailed from trade associations and from lawyers and shippers. And that's what we haven't been getting is what is happening on the ground. How do people feel so. That's what i've been focusing on and actually the biggest thing is obviously uncertainty. The most interesting thing to me was. I couldn't find any panic anywhere

"Monolithic structure that was discovered in utah in a cave. But like it's not natural looking. It's like a black kind of like ten foot obelisk or something like that. I don't know if that's big enough to be novelist. But monolith a monolith right so sorry. Yeah i don't know. What did you think it's aliens. You think it's aliens. I mean that's the question right. Who put it there. Yeah because there's no no one's claimed it it dropped. They said like there's no signs of it was dropped. It just appeared You know. I'm going go aliens on this one. It sounds gnarly. I mean the article Heavily references two thousand one space odyssey. Which is where i get the word monolith from because that's like what's all about and so they're like. Oh maybe it's a fans. I think they filmed that in the utah desert. And they're kind of saying like oh. Some artists did an installation like it looks artistic more than like anything else They thought like oh nassar put it. They're like bounce satellite signals author. But it's kind of like lowered into some rocks and stuff which would be interfere so it's not quite ideal for that. So i think the leading theory in the article was like like an artistic installation or something. Yeah

An Unexplained Monolith in the Utah Desert
"A helicopter crew from. Utah's department of public safety. Were on a routine assignment coming bighorn sheep in the southeastern part of the state when they spotted a mysterious silver monolith in the middle of the red rock standing about ten to twelve feet tall. Perfect shiny triangular prism the crew. Says it definitely looks like it was planted there on purpose not dropped from above on accident. Short of some nasa experiment pilot brit. Hutchings thinks it was probably put there by an artist maybe fan of two thousand one. A space odyssey. It does bear a striking resemblance to the black monolith that appears in that film but the department of public safety reminded people in a statement that installations on public land require permits quote. No matter what planet. You're from end quotes. They've also said they won't disclose exactly where they found it. Because it's in a location that could be dangerous to navigate for amateur hikers. And they don't want to cause curious visitors to injure themselves or become stranded. But they did post a bunch of photos and videos taken by the crew with the monolith including one where one of the guys standing on top of another one's shoulders to get a measurement of the monolith against lincoln. The show notes. So you can see for yourself with this mysterious structure. Looks like i'm kind of curious how long it's been there you know. How often do people fly over this part of red rock country looking for sheep or otherwise paying close enough attention to have noticed it. The guardian pointed out that some people have noticed. The monolith bears striking resemblance to the works of artists. John mccracken who did live in nearby new mexico but died. Eight years ago he's galleries. David's werner did not return request for comment from the guardian. Is it possible. The monolith has been there for over eight years just waiting to be discovered or was it planted by someone else or some thing else. I guess we'll just have to wait and see.
