"His heart aches to go. His family says No. He knows his destiny is out there wistfully. He scans the horizon, the breeze. Hustles this hair. Dusk is approaching. He watches the sunset. He watches too Sun's setting. In 1977 movies changed forever, and so did the hopes and dreams of a generation. All because of one man and his imagination, cosmic clash of good against evil a long time ago in a galaxy far far away. This is the story of that man in his dream. People who made it happen and the people who did their very best to stop it dead. It was made on a shoestring and dumped into a handful of theaters. And why is that well, conflicted ideas would be the best way to put it. New love to hear the news report out of big cat country, But when you play that song, you know it gets stuck in my head for about an hour and a half. It's an earworm. Yeah, The sad thing about this is theirs too sad things number one Joe Exotic didn't really sing this song. No, we did not the guy who did sing. It was kind of an obscure country singer that never got famous and still didn't And when I say Woz, didn't he? It was two guys. One of them died, right? I think so. Now we don't know who they are. Yeah, that sucks. But, you know, of all the things that Joe exotic dead. At least he gave that guy a chance. And now is Joe exotic out of jail. Is that the news that the song was leading up to now, now it's not now. Tiger King star Carole Baskin. Has just launched her own crypto currency. Help if it big cat coin. It's called Cat Coin. It's Cat. Big cat. No. Well, there's Doetsch coin. Hers is just called cat. Technically, it's a crypto currency. And I know I've defended crypto currencies in the past. It's a deep you've actually invested in them. Oh, yeah, well, most of your own money, mostly just Bitcoin. I have a little bit of it. I have a theory, um, to how many order A lot. Okay, so I know about Bitcoin and the dog thing, George Cornell. Alright, does dog whatever. But there's more. Yeah, There's Bitcoin cash. There's Bitcoin. There's a theory um There's a lot of different kinds, but not but they're not all created equal. There's a publicly traded company called Coin Base. And Coin Boys based won't let you trade some of the more suspicious Cryptocurrency cat coin be in that group. I'm gonna go ahead and guess Yeah, nothing because it's sterile Basket. Will you ask yourself? Why does Carol back skin need her own crypto currency? Good question. What the hell are you doing? The point of crypto currency is you could purchase things on the Internet without there being a digital trail. It doesn't. It's decentralized money. It's like also, you may look lead of criminal enterprise. That sound like what? You know what you're thinking. Well, let me explain it like this without leaving a trail. We would never buy drugs illegally. Course not, But it's my understanding that drug dealers try to work with cash and not credit cards. Does. That leaves a record of the purchase? Right? Right with crypto currency. There's technically no record. I mean, there could be a record, but there probably isn't depending on how you trade. The crypto currency is a lot easier to hide, then cash especially big amounts of cash. When you can lose it, you know it can. It can get washed. You could. Both people could take it from you. Yeah, all those things right? Exactly Now, Carole Baskin wants to have her own Cryptocurrency. Is this show so she could buy big cats illegally. It must be. I have to assume this is for illegal activities, and we should not let that happen. I think about it. A woman who's been accused of having her ex husband murdered wants to create her own currency that can't be tracked..

"About the tiger? Oh, yeah, yeah. Yeah. Somebody sent me that video last night. I don't live out that way. We posted it to social media. You could find it on all of our pages. Twitter, Facebook big goal. Bengal Tiger was roaming the neighborhood on but pretty nice neighborhood fairly close to town. I mean, it's west of Houston. Out around Memorial and Highway six. If you're familiar with that area real close to a giant park named after George W. Bush, Yeah, care for that, anyway. A Bengal tiger was lounging and someone's front yard kind of prowling up and down the street. People were pretty surprised to see a tiger. Okay, So it sounds like some guy had the tiger living in his house. Yeah, and before he came out and realized the tiger was out of the house. His neighbor came out with a gun. Yeah. Waller County deputy who lives in the neighborhood pulled out his service weapon. Now the tiger doesn't see that as a command to stop. The tiger doesn't know you pulled a gun on it right? Exactly. Asses. The man the you know, deputy of the neighbor is pointing a gun at the Tiger. The Tiger's owner, We assume ran outside said Don't shoot, Don't shoot and then runs up to the tiger kisses. It kisses the tiger took him by a scholar and took him into his house. And then while people are out there with their cameras filming, he came back outside with the tiger loaded him up in his truck and then drove away before the police could get there.

D.C. Leaders Consider Whether to Keep Police in Schools

"Public is speaking out about the presence of police officers in D C. Public schools and district leaders are listening. D. C. Police Reform Commission's recommendation of eliminating the school safety division is wrong. Eastern High School Assistant principal Benjamin Davis shared the story of a student who's freshman year at the school was turned around when she saw her school resource officers from middle school and they sat mediations with her and took an interest in our life. From her success. The young lady that I'm speaking of has not missed a day of classes toward a teacher, Mary Bala testified. All police should be removed from schools. Having police presence in house does not facilitate de escalation or foster a safe learning space. The CPS oversees the school Resource officer program. Lindsay Walton, with the council chairman's office says it remains to be seen if any council members create legislation based on issues raises the public hearing.

"That is the exact realm of recommendation. That we love libby continues. I have one farthing. it's a classic. English country house mystery set in an alternate universe or will were to turned out differently One thing i find interesting about the book is that it uses the genre ish plot idea of an alternate history but puts it in the background to make it the setting for another type of genre story The appeal of the book is how it summons up tropes and then subverts them. I don't think it pulls it off. i don't think pulls off. Everything wants do flawlessly. But it's a book. I really enjoy a book that feels very current for probably obvious reasons. I guess we'll discuss that and would love to hear you talk about thank you. There's a way toward the end of the book. Like in the in the last few chapters where it fully stops being a country house mystery murder mystery novel and becomes a political alternate history novel and it really feels. I don't know maybe if the so there are two sequels to this book. There's a half penny and there's half a crown all currency the small change series. It's called Which is about both the currency and the small d- change the butterfly flapping its wings. Hitler is still in charge of germany in nineteen sixty but Man what was i saying but the other books seem to be i think oh were overly as so if they are also in the same world. There are s- there is at least one major recurring character based on the plot synopses. I've read but it's not like they're not like direct sequels that fully continue the story that is insurers in a little bit And if i think if the second book had directly picked up maybe the way this book takes Hard right turn toward the end would feel a little more satisfying. 'cause you'd find out more about like what happened to the people who go from being like suspects in a murder mystery too literal refugees. Oh okay but i enjoyed it. I always have. It's always interesting to think about alternate histories and especially like when you're talking about the process of writing a book like we do on the show like what do you choose as your inflection point on while that's always that's always a lot of stuff to talk about so well. We will probably find a decent chunk of that to talk about today in the time that we have quickly. I'll let our readers know.

Hey you should have believed in the pac twelve. But i demanded all pac twelve fans. Show me they're brackets so we can see if they even believed in the past well. Ucla came out of nowhere and just to beat a team like michigan. That was legitimately a great team. That people thought might be able to some trouble and here. They are just winning game after game.

Tape that: Dutch inventor of audio cassette dies at age 94

"Let's jump into tech fan here since you know we. We just mentioned about recording stuff off the right. Yeah yeah kinda sad news and we're also doing this as part of our wookey. Trolling thing but I saw this i. I'm i'm kinda glad. I i saw you know five seconds while i was on a lunch break looking on my phone. I saw and i thought. Oh that'd be something we're talking about so go ahead. What well this is This is the guy who invented tightly. Walton's died at the ripe old age of ninety four. Yeah a law people forget nowadays that philips the dutch company invented this stuff named ventured the compaq says as being the lead on the compact disc. It's funny his goal. I'm looking at the los angeles times. Obituary that you linked his goal is making tapes and their players. Far more portable and easier to use because. Look the cassette. Tape wasn't the beginning of Recording to a magnetic tape they had real to reel that that was invented and twenty three And they had a in recording studios in radio. Stations is early as the thirties and it was very complex stuff to use. This guy took that basic concept and although the tapes were a little different And he wanted he had. He carried a block of wood in his pocket and the goal was to have the player and a tape. Take up about same amount of space and you can't really argue with his success And think about you know he. He basically created an entire industry from his invention. So while we talk about this guy. Let's talk about the cassette tape as well. Because it's our wikipedia. Wiki trolling Commonly called the tape cassette cassette tape audio cassette or simply tape or cassette. It would to me. It was always those were always interchangeable. Do you got you got a blink tape you gotta cassatt you got you and you had really two kinds you had the prerecorded cassette which was records like. We were talking about earlier albums Do you remember the single cassettes. It would be one song young. Rip off to me. I think i had a couple of days. Oh everybody hype blank tape. Yeah it was just people people. Some people want to listen to singles call Yeah there's two things that conduct strikes strikes me about except tape. First of all is the miniaturization they something that was expensive and very fiddly a bake. There's something really was only yes. They're professionals or for very rich people. Yeah and they miniaturized it to something that the allowed portability and transform them the way we listen to music but the second thing for me. I you know anybody who's ever use cassette tapes now the every now and again there. We go wrong with tangled up in your player and it used to be the you know if a tangled up. Somebody's car you wonder. If sometimes you just wander around on the street or in accomplish something you need to see. The massive tangle of time resources obviously yanked out they call yanked till the bits that the come off and then and the end it was broken at that point and then just come thrown on the street when people to listenable A new see those long around but generally they were absolutely you know they were pretty reliable. Not particularly high quality but pretty reliable. And i think the reliability they built into that platform it really astonishes me more than anything else because it was completely mechanical and yet You ninety five percent the time. It was relatively flawlessly. It was introduced in september nineteen sixty. Three came in two forms already recorded content in prerecord content. Remember when you found out that you could stick a piece of paper or something in the little hole at the top and record over. A prerecorded tape mess right. Yeah that little tab out so you could. Nobody could record over that. That six you'd make you'd make a mix tape for someone. You had a bus. That little thing screwing up my mix tape. Technology was originally designed for dictation machines but improvements of fidelity led to the compact cassette to supplement the stereo eight track cartridge in reel to reel tape recording in most non-professional applications

He's evolved to be more interesting. I remember watching those. Mba on nbc games with bill walton and marv albert as a kid. Bill was nothing compared to what he is now. Penetration jumpers in transition whereas the defensive resistant for minnesota walton. Was the guy in a suit and tie on nbc for several years. Kevin garnett is thirty six in the nba. Free throw attempts. That's not good enough now. He's the when there isn't a pandemic going on. He's showing up at basketball games in grateful dead shirts and he's embraced everything that he probably had to bury for a very long time. Congo line coming from our free gave receptionist vicky driving that train leading the haredi onto the court. This was so much fun. We've done to do a really good job all the time. But he wants to do his way and his way is to have fun key. Eight a birthday candle. That was let off of a cupcake. He just swallowed the flame home during broadcast. Take a bite out of it. While it's lit ostade about the face for a lot of viewers. They want the nuts and bolts of a pick and roll offense or how you trap bill. Walton doesn't offer much of that bill walton wants to find a correlation between a slam. Dunk and the majesty of the grand canyon. He wants to see a perfect rotation for an open corner. Three and somehow relate that to a grateful dead concert imagination. It's not work. It's taking an idea of building a now synchronicity. What did you learn how to ucla. Or is that prior to your though. I learned that at my i did and i think the most fascinating part of this whole thing to me is that there are subsets of the internet. That either eight bill love. Bill are want to know what he's on and what he's on his life.

I did kind of know that. Yeah but i mean the reality is they would have the voice generation because my friends who still exist and you were partially there. I just figured why not glorified and that. That's it's one hundred percent. Sure like you really have to envision what you want just like anyone. That's getting started them. Anything that's new. It's really hard to believe in yourself so when you start announcing yourself as the voice of a generation you live up to your monikers. You really step into that power. So it's not like you have to you know slow it down place mall when you are the voice of a generation which you currently are right now. The you stepped right into it percents I love it.

Refounder: The Essential Longevity Plan for Every Small Business

"What we've all heard the term founder and many of us our founders of small businesses. But what is a re founder and can you be one of them. Help us with that. Is patrick colletti. Who's a leadership at organizational cultural expert champion for founders and author of the upcoming leadership leadership. Book rebounder patrick. Welcome to the show. Thank you invite me here so been surviving during this pandemic. We've been making lots shifts Founder should you know finding the opportunities and being candid and honest about what needs to change. And as emily it's been It's been terrific so we all know. When a founder isn't a lot of us are founders. What's a refunder. Well refound herships the same john as founders though is expressed in different ways so let founders visa visionaries they take a different approach But they're the turnaround artists. These men and women who reimagine existing but broken structures and aimed to improve them. So i like to think of them. In a way as very practical magicians taking the raw materials of the company a culture or even life and transforming them into something more meaningful so put more simply be founders used their magic to create something better from something broken and founders typically start and founders two to draw a parallel but a difference they really start with nothing a create something so refunders. Really take something that's broken and make it better so our refound. There's always someone from the outside or kenny founder. become a refunder or they can't because as they say you can't read the label when you're inside the jar. I absolutely believe that people can change. So i would say while it is not that typical that founders then become a founder. I say they are where when given the right stimulus whether it's a crisis Something with their business with their family. Something dramatic happens in other book point to the fact that he to change that they change in history shown that that absolutely can happen so give us give us some examples of history where outside persons coming been rebounder and actually found gold in something that perhaps the founder had given up on shirt yet. This is it's actually quite common. You know there's a. There's a life cycle for those enterprises. That are fortunate enough to grow passed. A few million dollars inevitably after a few years. Some form of entropy occurs and so whether it's the founder that gets them stimulus that recognizes something needs to change more likely somebody within the business typically visit trigger now as you know with small businesses Most of them don't crush that two three four five our they do the need for change. Change die becomes pretty critical and so virtually any business today. That is over. Ten million dollars in revenue has had to make some pivots that all would point to having founder in the business. Now that may be a middle manager. That's pointed out that the product line needs to change that could be a co founder Or it may be found as well. Yeah it's interesting because you see very few businesses. They're able to go from nothing to billions of dollars. I mean the michael dell's of the world. The bill gates the world's although bill gates had partners to typically the skills that you need to actually get something started are not the same skills to grow it past at least in my case past ten million dollars it also indicates that there are not a lot of one companies right and so while you know what what gets you to. The party isn't the thing that will necessarily keep you there. It speaks to the fact that you know you may be one trick Business and you may have one. Particular product speaks to an audience. But that doesn't necessarily create a real thriving. Enterprise that's just a product you know. It's it's interesting to me because what you're saying is the refounded necessarily a partner or owner in the business. It's just some kind of person that works with you. That's a catalyst absolutely so founder doesn't need to be an owner in the business. In fact when. I speak to college students or young professionals one of my encouragements to them is every employer wants this. Every employer may not provide a fertile ground for but once they once you share on these your founder characteristics. They want you there. You're gonna be the future of the business and there's go ahead. Yeah there's really four steps in so one could argue. There's four kinds of founders instead of behavioral models that are that are linked to this. But i think the easiest way to think about it is every founder follows four typical patterns in the first one is a refunder. Isn't afraid to take silver. Look at hard reality and when you think about those folks that are on the front lines and maybe do in hand to hand combat in sales part of that has to do with ignoring problems sometimes and ignoring the knows that you get to keep going another day and so that may not fit well with somebody who is focused and taking a sober look at a hard reality. And that's not. Take a shot at salespeople at all Salespeople are very important. i'm a salesperson. We all need to sell. We're going to be successful but that particular behavior taking a sober look at hard realities. Takes a very special kind of person in personality. The second step is identifying. What's broken and you think about that. In terms of your strength finders. The level of conscientiousness that takes imprecision to find what's actually broken. And then to to take a phrase from the book which is taken from william faulkner to kill your darlings because candidly most of us to have too many options and it's difficult to close doors and so if you can be wise enough to kill your darlings and selectively focus then you go to the third step of of being founder. And that's where you imagine a davis in bold new possibilities and even if those possibilities seem remote it just for a moment juxtaposed that with step one which is not being afraid to take a sober. Look hard realities those people in particular. Think about your conscious. Cfo or an accountant that may fit into that category than imagining audacious bold new possibilities. And so that's the third step and then the fourth is refunders spring to action and the key here is execution and so we all of her execution is key. But there's there's an important asterik here. And that is that they have to execute by creating better realities for people those in their communities in the world large because just executing to get it done that may work for a short period of time. But unless there's a just cause a real purpose that re founding effort walton fail in. I don't really want to sell short. How difficult this is really for. A founder because founders are used to doing it themselves right so have you found that founders may not want to refound your because they say i can do it. I can turn around or they don't wanna work with someone because they don't want to miss something's wrong absolutely image part of the human condition and so therefore it's just a reflection of the organizations institutions that we run whether they're not for profits for profits. So yes i mean i think this is part of the the human condition and and really i think the bigger question is how large of an impact do you wanna have. Do you want to have a comfortable life with a very small business. That teeters on the edge or do you want to run. The kind of enterprise that has global impact or create flourishing for hundreds of thousands of people. We're talking with patrick colletti. He's the author. A book called founder. I think it's difficult for a lot of founders. Patrick because there's so much ego tied up in their business that change is difficult. I'm running my next book. Is called change masters and how hard it is for people to actually change. Unless they're in incredible pain and they have no choice. I'd found that sometimes the best opportunities arise during a moment of crisis and it might be a giant burden on your heart broken relationship or just a corporate hot mess. But it's in those moments that i think you can trigger a great refounding

Addressing the Digital Gap During the Pandemic

"Either this is alan shark and welcome to another episode of shark bites. This is the first episode in the year. Twenty twenty one so hopefully you had a happy new year and looking forward to a much better year than perhaps we had last year. As you know the podcast delves into europe. Cio's and other tech leaders throughout local government to some extent state government and today. We are very fortunate. Have john walton. John is a chief information officer of the county of san mateo california. I've known him for over a decade and he is getting all these awards and whatnot and it seemed like this is an appropriate time to really have a chat into sheer the discussion with you. John brings over twenty five years of experience in the fields of information. Technology has a diverse background in both public and private sectors sending innovative technology standards providing visionary leadership for numerous organizations each receive tons of awards and most recently state tech recognized him as one of the thirty people to watch in the year. Twenty twenty twenty-eight came out towards the year so hopefully it'll make the list again in twenty twenty one but he sent a lot of things that hopefully we'll get into that for example. I believe he'd been on school board. You have been a race car driver so you have a lot of interest so john. Welcome thank you on. It's great to be here. I really enjoy having the opportunity to talk with you. Ve enjoyed our friendship and partnership over the years and really excited for twenty twenty one. Yeah it's got to be better than last year. Such such an anomaly. Such a different year. It can only get better so john. I always ask when we begin these discussions. I always believe that. Very few of us wake up in high school or even college and say when i grow up and when i go into the adult workforce i want to be a chief information officer so i'm always curious to know. How did you get to where you are. You've had a really great career and is far from over so if you would you've had an interesting journey so let's spend a couple of minutes talking about. How did you get to the county san mateo allen. Yeah that's That's a great question and probably the most complex question. You're going to ask me today. So i will. I will try to keep it to a couple of minutes. It was a long winding road to end up. Were ended up i. I grew up in. A family of there was a military family. My dad was missile defense and so we moved a lot as you can imagine and my dad used to like to say we lived in places where people didn't care where he blew things up so those rather rural and isolated and i wasn't into computers at all matter of fact i'm of an age where computers were still a relatively new thing so my exposure to computers were really through. My dad was a bit of what we call order now. Every time they would demo out a test site he He felt terrible about all the expensive computer equipment that was getting thrown away. Pdp lebanon's and things like that so he would haul them home in his pickup truck. And i grew up with garage. Full of old mainframe computers wang's ibm's and so those were my toys. My friends growing up but to be honest they didn't really interest me I really love nature and so When i teach classes at san francisco state and things like that mba students. I always tell them to become a cio. The first thing you do is you go to humboldt state university and get a degree in natural resource science. because that's where every good cio starts with a degree in natural resources. And and that's really how i got started i. I really wanted to be a researcher. A scientist i wanted to study nature and the environment and at that time The college was implementing backs computer systems. That was a new thing and it turned out that i wasn't really great at school. I i guess you would probably call it. Add now. but i don't do well sitting in classes listening but turns out a really good at setting up. Faxes for all the computer. Labs all the professors would give me extra credit to make up for my poor test scores by going in and configuring all the computers in the labs and so that would really help. My career started i. I did get a bachelor's degree in science. I enjoyed that but immediately after college. I started setting up. Computer systems. for counties and cities and private industry and it just went from there and in those days. It was really what you did. You just sort of went from project to project and it was word of mouth and if you knew anything about computers that kind of puts you a leg up on the competition so while up here i am now i must cio the great county here in california You know appreciative of all the recognition. Our county gets think it's really a reflection to the hard work. The staff here does and the leadership of the county the supervisors in the city manager. I think i am probably the best easiest. Cio job in california. They they make things very easy for me. I met one of your deputies at a recent meeting in there. You do have a very talented staff so tell us. I did read somewhere about this racing car thing so tell me a little bit about that. Well yes so. That's like. I said the the technology thing wasn't really a passion of mind when i was young and my dad is a hobby was an amateur stockcar razor so i grew up around tracks and engineers. It turns out you know. He was an engineer. Engineers love to build things and so he looked to build cars and fix cars so i grew up working on cars and building cars and race cars and have always been around those. And so that's always been my hobby. As a matter of fact the mechanic paid my way through college. Because i had an aptitude for that. And it's really just built from there. I think from my childhood you know as a as an executive technology really. I spend most of my time. Unfortunately you know in meetings in office buildings working on spreadsheets. Power plants you know. It's not as glamorous as probably some people think it is to be a cio for me at least and kind of tactile this rule I built my own race cars. I tune them my drive them on the track. It's really release for me. And all the things i do probably things. It helps me too many of us in this world. Nowadays we all try to multitask too much when meetings and checking email and texting. And i will say if you ever need to focus. There's nothing like being racetrack. One hundred thirty miles an hour going into a turn to cause you to focus and not worry about. Who's texting you calling you on the phone. So i still love it. I've sold most of my cars now. I have to left. And i still do it when i have the time. But it's it's less and less these days. Covert has kept us very busy. And i have two young sons that i try to spend as much time with is like can so until they get interested in racing than i probably won't spend as much time at the track is i have in the past

A Weekend Of Chaos In Britain

"Been a weekend of chaos. in britain. the prime minister. Boris johnson gave a press conference on saturday which kick started a chain of events that is now being felt worldwide launch price former communications director at number ten downing street joins me now and monaco own editorial director tyler overlay is on the line from our studio launch. If we could begin with you can you talk us through. What's happened since saturday afternoon. Well basically christmas in britain has not quite been canceled. But it's come pretty close to it and it's enfold a pretty massive change of direction if not u-turn by the british government only on wednesday of last week. The prime minister was saying it would be inhuman draws people to cancel that christmas plans And then on saturday. He was forced to do a news conference in which he said that that is exactly what he was asking them to do. So that now people in in this country because of this new variant of covid nineteen essentially will be asked to just see a small number of people depending on where they live in the country on one day only on christmas day and then of course. We learned yesterday overnight. that's because of this New variant which is understandable because in great concern around the world. People struggled to see whether or not they have already with a. If they haven't they can they can contain the to prevent it coming. In from the united kingdom of borders closed all over the place huge queues to lorries trying to get to the at channel pulse dover in in particular where the crossing is to france and The french assigned that they won't take any huge queues at the an railway stations that get out of london and also chaos at the airports with likes being canceled to just about every destination you can of and it's hard to keep track of all the buddhas being closed at the moment. Tyler could bring you in here. What is the european view. We'll good afternoon georgia. European is one of not just canceling flights and cancelling connections. But also what we're seeing now. are now new quarantines going up so you know brits and also we also focused on maybe on a territory close to your heart or close to your heart also south africa as well because south africa is very much in the news as well it it. It is really in line with the uk as another country. is seeing outright bans on all travelers arriving whether the company from cape town or Or johannesburg into germany into switzerland and elsewhere as well so you have mean proper borders closes. It looked to for that moment. Yesterday we saw the dutch saying that. Okay airlinks We're going to be suspended but now we're looking at you. No one is allowed to arrive. in many countries the uk. And as you said almost minute by minute there are new measures going by countries across the continent here I mean lance one of your former colleagues listed campbell says it looks like the whole country is being put in brexit four by the rest of the world when incompetence meets venality and covert and brexit combined to expose the worst possible government at the worst possible. Time which you agree has this been woefully mishandled. Mile does have a way with words doesn't he. And he's absolutely right to in pretty much. Everything within the he says. Of course you have to separate this from from brexit brexit the final brexit deadline. Which is the thirty first of january. Hasn't yet hit us but as honestly suggests it's a taste of what we thought who's going to come anyway and he's also right to say that it raises a big question over the competence of the government other new variant of covid. Nineteen isn't boris johnson. Falls it's not anybody's walton in the in the british government but their reluctance to recognize. What so many other people around the world were recognizing and what their own scientific medical devices with telling them. Which was that the original plan for a five day. Christmas virtual virtually a free for all in the uk was just madness to only for that only to dawn on them on saturday. In the light of the new virus i think does call call call into question their their competence the end of the year when actually frankly dot competence has been called into question many times. I mean you think that johnson used the fact of the new variant to excuse his u-turn and was that then the perfect excuse for european borders to to fall like dominoes and shut us off physically from the block. Is there a little bit of perhaps schadenfreude going on here. We'll do spend a lot of speculation today georgina. You look at a number of different european news. Outlets are we also heading for some type of emergency extension Which could potentially happen. Which would again this would be of. Course be you know the perfect measure You have this new strain. You have borders. Of course being closed eros suspended cetera There there's no better excuse to if they wanted to kick this into the grass. I mean no one wants this But certainly you have to think here we have incredibly busy government Who have to deal with logistics issues. they have to deal with A media and public storm around this. I think we could be could be heading for certainly if you're listening to a lot of the correspondence at have brussels today. Maybe an extension talking about those logistical issues. Lonzo i mean. There are serious concerns about supply chains. How will the border closures affect availability of because then indeed traffic. Kent is already gridlocked in terms of traffic coming into the uk. Of course the roots are still open. If people wish to use those rates as a question ma about whether eu holiest would want to send their vehicles into the uk If they didn't get out again especially in the run-up to christmas and the other thing to remember is that a quite a lot quite a high percentage of trade across the english channel is unaccompanied freight. So it goes in containers dr flirt. It's picked up on the other side so there's no physical as a human being crossing with it and that can continue so the supermarkets and the many people in industry. I'll say don't panic yet. But we may be days away from them saying actually. Now's the time to panic I mean tyler is britain and by extension boris johnson. The sick man of europe. Is this an unprecedented crisis. Could we compare it to. I don't know one thousand nine hundred nine well if you look at some of the headlines in the papers certainly in the german press. We've been seeing the word pariah state being used at. This is not something that you throw around lightly georgina and of course. Adrian has lancer as well. You're there've been so many missteps on the part of this government of boris johnson's government over the last year You know just you fits and starts Throats and certainly near the stop start notion of of how to deal with this and then there's just the pure calms issue that you had the health secretary matt hancock. You're really using the words out of control. No one wants to be quoted and heard to be using the world words out of control. But that's of course what is what is popping up in the media all over the place so this is very much a situation Which is a on number ten. Watch and i really. I mean unfortunate viewing You know when we have just a little over week to run to the end of the year absolutely. I mean the whole thing about boris. Johnson is his popularity. He's been trying to do everything. Save christmas to just remain popular. He's he's a brinkman he makes. He puts off decisions until the last possible moment. He's had to do this thing he didn't want to do. What does this mean for his future. Well it certainly calls into question. I think quite a lot of wiser heads in the conservative party. A wondering about the man that elected as their leader elected him as the leader essentially because he was offering a clean break with the party's and and with the country's past as a member of the european union but there were a lot of alarm bells were ringing even before he was elected leader of the conservative party so prime minister about whether he had the kind of character to do the job. Not as those questions are even more relevant today but one aspect of his character is an shown this time and time and time again is that he thinks he can get away with almost anything so things he said in the past that might have ruined other people's political raise. He shrugged them off with a joke or or a struggle. Whatever it whatever it may be decision sees a potential scandals in his private and professional life. He thinks he can trump the more often. Just get on with it. And i think that Which is a kind of you know. Fly by the seat of your pants. Premiership simply isn't up to the task that now faces and and we're we're finding that out and a lot of people paying the price for it absolutely tolerate wonder. If i could just end with you. I don't know how much of an astronomer who are but saturn jupiter comes closest. They've been in almost four hundred years today. The the two giants of the solar system will be just not point one degrees part in the night sky that makes them appear to be one bright star just about the moon the great conjunction as it's being called also coincides with the winter solstice. Now we all know what happened. Two thousand and twenty years ago when there was a bright star. Do you think this is a potent from the heavens. Are we to expect the second coming or the end of days. I think we were corresponding last night. Georgina did use the word biblical then. So i didn't know if that's sort of foxfire. D'you into into that orbit certainly feels like that with this. It is really a convergence on on so so so many levels. I mean if you if you break this down thinking about the the the the ongoing political story that we've had around brexit Really pretty much a year that we've now been dealing with at least global level with this pandemic And then all of these other we call them niggly. Bits that are also I think surrounding the uk at the moment As well so this will be on. This will be revisiting. The story of sure later today and we'll be talking about it across the week for sure. Absolutely and i think just to tear each other up if we could schedule a zoom call later where we both sing. Tutsi-run emma sheet. Is christmas eve That would go some way to alleviating the absolutely. I think that's going to have to be heavily on the playlist this afternoon. We'll look forward to chatting later.

"walton" Discussed on Ghost Town

"Me. I've been ingesting horror movies since i was in utero. My mom was like you've seen rocky horror picture show. And i'm like i'm too. Why music well square but fire in. The sky was one of those movies where four years i would have nightmares about it and i lived on. My parents lived on the lake. You'd see like little flying objects like boats and stuff very late at night. And i was like someone's going to come abduct me now. I better be ready for it. And g go on you. Yeah me important. This prized beautiful child is going to go and throw race based on you. Yeah basically this dumpy little middle school. Ju yeah what else do you need people. But there is a story behind fire in the sky. And this is it so on november fifth nineteen seventy five twenty two year old logger named travis walton was working with the timber stand improvement crew in the apaches state graves national forest. Near snowflake i mean arizona new mexico nevada like talk about the holy trinity of states. Were abductions happened. While riding in a truck with six of his co workers they encountered a saucer shaped object hovering over the ground. Approximately a hundred and ten feet away making a high pitched buzz wallin claims that after he left the truck and approach the object beam of light suddenly appeared from the craft and knocked him unconscious. The other six men were frightened and drove away. The next thing he remembers walton woke up in hospital like room being observed by three short bald creatures. He claimed he fought with them until a human wearing a helmet lead walton to another room where he blacked out as three other humans. A clear plastic mask over his face from his one thousand nine hundred ninety eight book. The walton experience great title. He says when i was i able to focus my is good enough. I was still on the table. And as soon as i saw this face and it wasn't human. I tried to hit it away from me. They were much smaller than me. And i think that's the reason they gave up. Once they found out they couldn't control me they split. I was absolutely terrified. And it's like okay. They slip from their own ship or what they couldn't subdue like again already a couple of holes in the story still captivating your jellison. It's not you what about me. I would have slant. I wouldn't have split. I would have stayed there to be probed all night long. Oh walton has claimed. He remembers nothing else until he found himself walking along a highway five days later with flying saucer departing above him which is also convenient to you really they could let you blackout and drop you. But then they would want you to see them flying away. I don't think so what was declared missing for five days. During which his lager friends fell under suspicion of foul play when walton finally turned up again not knowing how long he'd been gone. An intense investigation was underway including multiple polygraph physical and psychological tests. He tells huffpost about the little known. Aftermath details including subsequent research in the forest area which has shown unusual growth rate and trees around the area of the encounter. He says about fifteen years later it was discovered that the trees nearest to are the ufo hovered have been producing wood fiber at thirty six times the rate at had eighty five years before that or recently a complete core sampling revealed that this thick and growth was only on the side of the trees towards in the direction of the place that the craft landed. In the days following walton's ufo claim the national enquirer awarded walton and his co workers a five thousand dollar prize for quote best ufo case of the year after they allegedly passed polygraph tests administered by the inquirer and the aerial phenomena research organization. Now we all know. Polygraph tests are kind of question. They're kind of bull shitty. But unlike other ufo stories he did pass right away and under scrutiny and not like there's other people which is always like my with them to there's other people around who were guessing weird happened and this is our story walton. His older brother and his mother were described by the navajo county. Arizona sheriff's as longtime students of ufo's some ufo allergist believe walton was abducted by aliens ufologist. Jim lead with said for five days. The authorities thought they'd been murdered by his co workers and then he returned all of the co workers who were there who saw the spacecraft. They all took polygraph tests and they all passed except for one and that was inconclusive according to his website travis walton dot com. The wadden experience is unequivocally the best documented case of alien abduction. Ever recorded if you have a chance. Please go visit his website. Tell us what you think. It's a good. It's it's not what you think. There's not like robot letters and lots of silver's goal it's very minimal. It's very fun but of course people think it's a hoax. You a researcher. Philip j klass considered walton story to be a hoax perpetuated financial gain and discovered many discrepancies in his account of walton is co workers after investigating. The case class reported that the polygraph tests were poorly administered. That walden used polygraph countermeasures. Such as holding his breath and that class uncovered an earlier failed test administered by an examiner. Who concluded that the case involved gross deception cognitive psychologists susan clancy are that reports began only after stories of extraterrestrials appeared in films on tv and that walton was likely influenced by the nbc television. Show the ufo incident which two weeks before his own abduction and dramatize the alien abduction claims of barney and betty hill. Which is an episode that we have done. is also very complicated and very interesting has very similar issues as you might imagine. In nineteen seventy eight wrote the book. The walton experience again great title detailing his claims which became the basis for the nineteen ninety. Three film. Fire in the sky which i watched and had abduction ed. V around paramount pictures described walton's account as two fuzzy in two similar to the other televised close encounters so they ordered screenwriter. Tracy torme who wrote for star trek and sliders on is also mel torme son to write kind of a sexier abduction story and it is like really reading through walton's testimony and the movie. They're very very very different. walton also sponsors. His own ufo conference in arizona called the sky fire summit in two thousand eight walton appeared on the fox game. Show the moment of truth and was asked if he in fact was abducted by a ufo on november fifth. Nineteen seventy five. He said yes his polygraph at that time determined he was lying. There's a lot of things happening here on a lot of things similar to the other abduction stories and cases that we've covered there's the idea of a convenient exposure to another abduction story in the media or in a book and it happening within weeks or months of that there's his kind of compelling evidence for it in that other stories may be corroborated but also against it in that like i'd you have made now a career off of abductions and you have your own conference about abductions you've become the abduction guy in the five days that he was missing because we we done episodes released least one episode about people that have been missing and they don't know where they've been talk about being in a few state as one of the things but this isn't the case because he says over the last five days i've been aboard we just would mean one person to be like i saw him at a gas station exact whatever within those five days and it seems like he has the people that he worked with and he wasn't living.

Pike's Peak: The Complete History of the World's Highest Hill Climb

"Pike's peak is a giant among giants. It's the highest mountain in the front range of the rocky mountains. It is formed from billion-euro old granite. That's right. Billion with a B. and was first named by the native people who lived in shadow the called the mountain. Taba meaning son and they were the Tableau Watch meaning people of San Mountain. In eighteen o six, the mountain was quote unquote discovered. By American explorer lieutenant, Zevulon Yuan Pipe. These God I sounds like an alien spaceship guy. On. Doesn't look as cool as his name suggests I'm just GonNa tell you right now he was sent by Thomas Jefferson on a mission to explore the West and upon seeing the Mountain Zevulun apparently swore the mountain would never be conquered by man cars didn't exist yet, but it's safe to assume pike would have included them in his assessment as well. Given the chance it only took fourteen years. To prove old Zebulon Pike. Wrong. The mountain was first scaled by a European in eighteen twenty when Edwin James, a botanist and explorer successfully reached the summit collecting flowers all the way up quote the most notable day of the expedition for botanical collecting. Now, I don't WanNa give all the credit to Edwin. James although it sounds like he had a great time, I'm sure that one of the Taboada probably. Did it before him yeah. One hundred percent. Yeah attaboy watch like a a wildfire up their boot who was just like I'm GonNa Climb that today flowers. We're lovely but it was a Shinier commodity that attracted the first wave of settlers to pikes. Peak Pike's peak or bust was a common slogan of the Colorado Gold Rush of the eighteen fifties although is more of a marketing slogan. Do the prominence of the mountain gold wasn't discovered near pikes peak until later in eighteen ninety three, it won't be the first time that the mountain inspired the imaginations of those who climbed it in that same year after reaching a summit of the mountain and taking in the view Katharine Lee Bates wrote the Song America the beautiful. Describing Purple Mountain Majesties above the enameled plane over the years the mountain was commonly referred to as Pike's highest peak before finally being simplified just to pikes peak the next notable American to shape the fate of the mountain was Spencer Penrose, and he also might have been the one to introduce cars. Penrose had a name that sound like the bad guy in a murder mystery but he also had a job that would fit right into the genre. He was a mining speculator of the American West just like a murder mystery penrose had a history that could make you think you is both a suspect and a savior he graduated from Harvard but at the bottom of his class. His father and brothers were doctors and lawyers he decided to travel out west and try to make a name for himself at first he failed before getting a tip about some land near Cripple Creek that made him millions of dollars, and that's million dollars like in the movie this guy is played by Walton Geoghegan's. For sure. That's love that whilst. Yeah. And that's millions of dollars in eighteen hundreds money, which is like a lot today billions today. I Love Walton Gardens he's so. I feel like if I went to Harvard I'd WanNa, graduate the bottom of my class. Look I'm I'm the best on the rowing team but. Not great at socio economics I mean I went to. Harvard. So I'm pretty good at stuff but like I partied penrose settled. Colorado. Springs. The closest town to pikes peak was met a woman named Julie Villiers McMillan although. Penrose was by then in his forty s, he had sworn to stay a rich entrepreneurial bachelor but Macmillan proved to be grimes to his Elon Musk and the two got hitched in traveled to Europe for a lavish honeymoon staying at beautiful resorts around Europe inspired penrose to murder his wife what now? In fact, the inspiration was to open his own motel modeled after the places he had stayed specifically on the Mediterranean coast. This became the Broadmoor hotel opened in nineteen eighteen at the cost of three million, nineteen eighteen dollars translating to scrooge mcduck. Gold Coin Swing Pool amount of money in today's money. The Broadmoor was and is a seven hundred, seventy nine room Italian renaissance style palace with eighteen restaurants a golf club with three courses including one designed by Arnold. Palmer himself an automotive museum, the contents of which will soon arrive at this thing is like massive. It looks awesome. Yeah. I WanNa go to the odd more. Yeah. Let's do it. How do you feel? Seven hundred rooms every night. That's nuts penrose was no fool. He knew he knew that to attract people to the hotel you needed to do things great reviews on tripadvisor, dot com and promotional stunts. He set out to work on an ambitious project as he built the hotel, it was a two hundred, eighty, three, thousand, dollar gravel and dirt road to the fourteen thousand, one, hundred, fifteen foot summit of pikes peak with the idea of promoting tourism to the area and indirectly his own hotel.

Florida: The swingiest swing state in the U.S. election

"I want to talk a bit about how we got here and why at least since the the famous near Tie of two thousand does just seem to be Florida or at least partially about Florida. Michael ask, you first win and why did floor to become the key battleground? Republican hasn't won the White House without Florida forever. So that's part of the reason that it's become. So you know everybody desperately wants it and it just seems to be the self-balancing State where it's about twenty percent immigrants. But you know the last the last fifty, million votes that have been cast for presidential candidates in. Florida. Republicans. Democrats, are separated by about twenty thousand and we've had just about every election. Every statewide election seems to come down to one percent and just seems like every time another white person. Republican moves down here from the Midwest another democratic leaning Immigrants May move into central Florida from the Global South and so it's a really seems to be self-balancing. Beyond those demographics that Monolithic is it a case of elderly white pensioners voting for Republicans, and more recent arrivals from elsewhere trading Democrat or is there some kind of overlap between spillage among those groups? As you can probably imagine it's a little bit more complex in that I think that there's didn't kind of increasing awareness for both Democrats and Republicans that some of the key demographics here you know the American immigrants but you know you have the first generation, the second generation you have the newer arrivals you have the. You have the Cubans you have the Puerto Ricans have the Haitians. There's such a mix of people and cultures and experiences, and when you add to that kind of the New Yorkers that are coming to Florida to retire, and you have all these different politics and ideologies of mixed together I think you really get. Such a representation of both the Conservatives and the liberals in both the US. But also in Latin America and I think that when you look at South Florida, you see a lot of those kind of play. You see you know from Columbia, you see the Conservatives from Columbia and you see the progressives from Columbia. So you have such a makes of. Of just these ideologies that really comes to shine like Michael said in the way that people vote. Michael is the a geographic split within Florida as well because it's the general tendency in the United States and elsewhere that cities tend to be more liberal more vaguely left-wing rural parts of a given state or given country tend to be more conservative. Is that clear cut in that respect in Florida? Well, again I think. Could certainly right that it's always a little more complicated but that's generally true I think you know you saw in two thousand sixteen that Hillary Clinton did even better than expected in a lot of the urban areas She Barack Obama won Florida and Hillary Clinton. Did even better in some of the particularly in south Florida in Miami and Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach and some of the more urbanized area. But Donald Trump there was an absolute revolution of essentially white people in the exurbs coming out and voting for trump in the rural and sort of farther away from the cities you don't want to over stereotype. But it certainly true that the Republican coalition has you know the heart of it is older white people who are very reliable voters and the Democratic Coalition relies on younger urban lots of immigrants, lots of minorities who in the past have not been turned out has not been as High Bianca. Those factors taken into consideration that I guess the Republican Party's and democratic parties in Florida will have an amount obviously in common with the National Party and parties elsewhere is there still a distinctive political culture within Florida like basically what I'm asking are Florida Republicans different from other Republicans, into Florida Democrats different from other States Democrats. I think when it gets down to it when you're thinking of. Our Florida Latinos for example, are they always kind of leaning Democrat or you know Florida South Florida Latinos are they always leaning Republican as people kind of think a lot of the time because of the cuban-american population I think that a lot of that is is changing. So at whether whether or not, you're going to see more cuban-americans still voting. Republican. In the way that they usually do a lot of that is kind of breaking and and being undone because of the younger generation, you know really having more of an experience in the. US and seeing the way that their families grew up in thinking about healthcare and climate change as more of priorities to them. So you know I would say that the main difference if there was one is here you can see a lot of distinctive kind of you see mixed political ideologies in families. So I've met even candidates who are you know Democrats were running now for public office in Florida and their families are different completely different ideology from them. So I think that that's what's interesting right and what makes Florida you know such. Unique and fascinating state is that it's changing all the time and it's changing not just because of the of the new kind of waves of immigrants that are coming in but also the new generations that are really having a different kind of awareness than the one their parents did. We'll talk more in the second half of the program about how Florida may have changed in the last four years and what it might be like in this election. But Michael just before we do that I don't like to tempt fate too much by talking about what happened in two thousand when basically an entire parallel history of the twentieth century got chalked off by a margin of a few hundred votes in Florida but. Still. Talk about that election much in Florida and Walton immense sliding doors moment that was not just for the United States. But as it turned out for the entire world, you know I think that's a great way. Great way of putting it because it certainly was I mean you know you wouldn't have an Iraq war if it wasn't for five hundred, thirty, seven votes the other way. And I think it's just a great example of. Of. You know the way these these elections and Florida are always one on the margins. Sort of every community matters again at the margins these things make a huge difference. I think. You know Republicans have been much better organized since two thousand and you saw in two thousand with that Brooks brothers riot But but everyone knows it's going to be close and and that really is a place where every vote counts.

"Surprised to see a tall human figure wearing blue overalls with the glassy helmet at the time. Walton said he did not realize how odd the man's eyes were larger than normal a bright gold color Walton says he then asked demanding number of questions but the men only grand in motion for Walton to follow him. Walton also said that because of the man's helmet he thought he might have been unable to here so he all the man down a hallway which led to a door and he steep ramp down to a large room. Walton described as similar to an aircraft hangar. Also says he realized he had just left a disc shaped craft similar to the one he had seen in the forest just before he had been struck by the bluish light but this craft was perhaps twice as large in the hanger. Like Room Wall reported seeing other DISC SHAPED CRAFT. The man led him to another room containing three more humans. A woman and two men resembling that helmeted man. These people did not wear helmets. So Walton says he began asking questions of them responded with same Dollah Grin and led him by his arm to a small table. So obviously they understand what he was saying. Like when you go to different countries people can't understand English. They just smiled and nodded. You just I'll bring you some food. Yep once he was seated at the table Walton says he realized the woman held a device like an oxygen mask which she placed on his face before he could fight back. Walton says he passed out when he woke again. Walton says he was outside the gas station in Hebrew Arizona. One of the disc shaped craft was hovering just above the highway. After a moment the craft shot away in Walton stumbled telephones and called his brother-in-law grant if he thought that only a few hours had passed apparently not of course. We know that it was actually five days. Five Damn Dave unaccounted for. And at that point we you know again. The movie plays into what actually happened. Where the the CO workers were became suspects in murders and were given lie detector test. Yes one of them didn't pass but because he was just shady character. Anyway you know what as a matter of fact and I think to this day they have retest them several times And they have all passed several times. The CO workers as well as Travis I mean they've all passed these tests. Yes yeah I mean. And He's again he he stuck to the story since nineteen seventy five course. The as as you saw the outcome of history is not as climactic as the movie one. Of course that no. It's super simple. I mean basically what it sounds like to me and I believe in a in a few recent interviews. He's actually come to conclusion well He believes and I believe as well. That what happened was When he was shot with the beam he was injured and the creatures knowing that the injured him brought him on board to repair him okay and they repaired him but then he woke up. Of course. He's freaked out so he's trying to get away and They didn't approach him. They let him go and so he goes to the other room and so while he's in there he's messing with stuff and then they're worried that he's GONNA end up breaking time and space or whatever you know the time space continuum and so like okay. Well he's better. Let's get you know the grazer. Obviously the workers of these golden eyed humanoid looking fingers. Yeah so the human. The human owners advocate. We need to get this man off our ship before he sends us into a whole different dimension and so they take them down into the hanger they knock his ass out nudges dropping back on earth and the five days could have passed due to the fact that some of Newton's laws of space right right. You know thought about that too. I was like how could be. It could have only been gone for a few hours. According to what he thought but because of the way the space space works right it could be. They were at high speed or something like that. oh close encounters thing. I mean it's the theories gotta come from somewhere and it makes a Lotta Sense. I mean there's a I forget what the name of the formulas called but there is a formula states. That the faster you go I think the faster you can go towards light speed or so. There is a theory that our scientific theory that says that as you travel further away from Earth You your time changes compared to what's on earth so you are. You could be gone months in space traveling away but when you come back time is different until you've actually gone years yeah because it like You know just real quick side note the movie interstellar yeah when he goes down that big QUASAR big dark star. I mean I was like first of all why they go to so close to something. That damn strong right Probably technically not actually You know not actually possible. But the fact that they went down they were gone for an hour and a half or something like that they come back up and twenty three years at right right. Lack of flash. It's that whole theory. You just don't know. Yeah so another. You've heard his side of it. I mean what do you think compared to the movie version? Well Guess the movie version is scary entertaining. But if we're GONNA do this man. Justice should tell the story more accurately Because it can also help to damage people's perception of alien life because you know if alien life does exist and comes to visit us the first reaction of people off Shit. They're gonNA shove a rotor down my throat right and you know and tortures me and all this crap. So what are you GonNa first thing you can do is? You'RE GONNA shoot them right you know and you might start an interstellar incident. Yeah far fetched perhaps but also possible. I mean one of the few incidences where at least from his point of view where they weren't hostile. I mean the obviously were in the game like you said you. You're exactly right in the movie. They were ha very hostile. Yeah I mean that one looking at and they weren't the little cute grays. They were the tall brown ones. Yeah like the one from signs so of like what the movie but the movie shows are just. I don't know anyway. What the movie shows is that they were the grays but the gray skin with the big black eyes spacesuit that they were They were actually little little peach looking creatures. And 'cause 'cause there's there's a scene where he comes across this space this Grey Alien Fleiss Right. He turns around he sees. It's empty show. It's an empty suit. That's their spacesuit they use when they come to earth but there's also a theory that the grades are not actually Biological beans or more like android robots that just do the bidding of like the Nor Nord's and the green the Goldeneye people and and we go on a whole different top. Hasn't here so there's a thousand different theories and I'm sure later episodes will come upon more that we can explore now I think his version of events is still really really cool. Very cool actually if it. I mean if they're actually friendly you know because if they wanted to kill us later done it already right. And if they have the ability for interstellar travel and other high tech they could deal us a death blow like that so I believe if there was alien life out there who wanted to do harm they would have done it already see. I think it's cool because his his version of events is much more anti-climactic it's it's very I mean. I hate to use the word believable or down the earth but it's much more benign and so if he wanted to if he really wanted to you know He could constantly embellish and add a few things here and there to make. It seem more more exciting more intriguing. But he's absolute stuck with the same am. I don't WanNa say boring but the same boring story since seventy five. Well that's what I was. And the fact that he's told the story honestly says No. This is what happened. I wasn't taking up there and experimented on or whatever like the movie says that I said you know He. He may not know what happened if they had operated on effects them or whatever because they blasted him it may not have been them shooting him. It could have been you know like a thruster something right. You never know what it was. No Yeah. They're just trying to move.

"walton" Discussed on State of Fear Podcast

"Was just past six o'clock. It's Travis Walton. In his six fellow log cutters finished off. A Long Day of thinning undergrowth in the Apache Sit Greaves National Force. The sunset darkness was falling quickly as attend to do among the Tall Pines along the mug along rim with it an increase in November chill was coming over the men and they anxiously piled into their truck to head for home would be at least an hour before they reached hieber to the north. So the men settle into their seats as best they could for the jarring drive up the force uneven dirt roads the smokers in the group hastily the first cigarettes they'd had an hour's Walton one of the only to nonsmokers on the crew. Set up front in the passenger seat enjoying the fresh cool air and watching the pines pass by heading up towards mogul on Rim Road Walton. Soon noticed something shining among the branches off to the right. The other saw two and the chatter from the backseat. Fell quiet spaces between the trees flashed by too quickly to make out what the object was but a clearing up ahead. Reveal a yellowish glow. That washed across the road in front of them. The driver sped up to get a closer look when they reached the clearing. The men were stopped by what they saw less than a hundred feet. From the edge of the road a glowing disk hung in the air floating motionless between the trees. Only fifteen feet off the ground that you've been out to the woods a lot right. James our raised in Wood's brother. What how would you feel if you were out doing your normal stuff in the woods and you just turn a corner tree and come upon a giant giant floating disk? If ten feet off the air around I would literally shit mice? I mean who wouldn't okay? Now everybody talks smack. Oh how it'd be so cool to see yes. It would be cool to see at a distance but if you like ran right up on it I believe that'd be probably one of the most bone chilling experiences. Someone I could probably have. And that's how you feel right now like if you if you were a kid when you're growing up and he did that you'd probably be scared shitless but right now known knowing as much as you know all the in parallel investigations you've gone. Would you still act the same way if you were in the woods in Colorado and you came upon this in the middle of the woods flowing in the woods I would probably still observed from a distance but I would probably want to check it out? Yeah you know I want to check it out but then you know the aliens probably get your camera out and try to take a picture. Maybe absolutely I had it with me. Yeah if I have a bad habit of travel when I'm like in the woods I don't take my electronics. I like to hike and just go one of them crazy crackpot to be screened Matt. Ufo's normally believe you know what? I believe Donald Evidence Right camera to James. I'm GonNa tell you what that's everything is everything 'cause nowadays with the way how many that all the storytellers bullshit artists and stuff out there. Oh yeah who tried to just say? Oh I saw this side. Where's your pictures? Well I didn't have with me. How do we have to prove it? Toss objective also. It's all about what you can prove nowadays no longer you know word of mouth. Nobody's GonNa take you at your word on something like something like that especially something that extraordinary I mean there are some people that do but They also require more evidence so like if you tell him he saw some dinner you experience something they want you to point out where they can go run tests and stuff but then if they don't have any other evidence backup what you claimed and they're not going to believe you course Oreo vanish. Yeah Oh yeah unfortunately. Come upon a government experiment of some sort or actual encounter. They may very well make you. Vanish yes probably get men in black. Lock you up something. Yeah men in black. That is not a farfetched. Fetched idea either. No I'm sorry it's not out there movie or not but yeah there's there's people out there secret secret level government people probably not even government probably beyond the government might be aliens yet. Government can just be a smokescreen. They really running shit. The truck slams to a halt in Walton opened his door to get a better look. There was no sound safer startled. Cry from one of the cutters. My God it's a flying saucer as he recounts in his book fire in the sky. Travis Walton stepped out of the cabinet walked towards the object. The others begged him to get back in the truck but he felt compelled to get a close up look he approached the craft cautiously glancing back to the truck mound in as his friends continued to plead with him. Coming within six feet of the craft Walton stopped and stared up at its glowing underside. That dude as a major component. I'm GonNa tell you what. Yeah because to walk up on something like that. Yeah general curiosity would lead you to look but then again was he at this point already under some kind of hypnosis well but I've never so the only time I've ever heard of hypnosis or even like Being in control of crafts when people are sleep never heard of it when they're awake. Okay that's just theory. Maybe but then again he he recounts these things right. Aures you know. He knows what he was doing. And Noble Circumstance. You know. People have been hypnotized. Do not remember most or all of what they've done or he also says that he looked a back to the truck a few times. Yeah so he was totally conscious what he was doing. Maybe he didn't real maybe. It just didn't dawn on him. It was an actual flying saucer. Maybe thought it was some kind of other something I mean. Obviously he was definitely on some under some sort of spell to be so transfixed actually walk up within six feet of this lie grass. It and I'm surprised you could walk the size of balls. You need to walk on something like that. Yeah I mean He. He just walked like he knew it like it was somebody on the side of the road. That car broke down in who they were. He's walked up to see what's going on crazy. Suddenly the silence along dark isolated road gave way to what Walton later described as thunder swell of turbine engine. That's winning narrow beam of light fire from Ottoman the disk and struck Walton in the chest. It lifted him up then knocked him to the ground. Like a thunderbolt in a panic. The rest of the crew sped away towards a main road terrified when the men regain their senses. They returned to the clearing to rescue their friend. The fortunately the craft was gone. And so is Walton. Got Abducted Damn yet. So how would you leave your friend behind way to go? Yeah take off and leave him. Well you don't happen Walton. Truck says I'll be right back. You never say never say. Never say that. Despite a thorough search of the area they could find no trace of him and were forced to drive home one crew member short when they reported what happened the authorities discounted the men's tale a ridiculous attempt to cover up a murder launched an extensive search for Walton's body. They searched for several days and found nothing. Walton reappeared here five days later in corroborated their story with the addition of what happened aboard the spacecraft. Up to this point everything. That's that we've discussed has been Told by the witnesses has been told by the police has has been told by will alter himself and this is how it is in the movie. Yeah up to this point. What happens in the movie is? I would probably say ninety percent accurate. What happened in the actual event? Yes here's where we sort of diverged from the Hollywood crap yeah get down to what what. Walton said actually happened versus where Hollywood. Because we'RE NOT HERE TO EMBELLISH. You know go along with Hollywood bullsh- right Walter reported that after approaching. Ufo near the work site. The last thing he remembered was being struck by there'd be maligned when he woke Walton said he was on a reclined bed. That's comfortable a bright light shone above him and the air was heavy and wet. He was in pain and had some trouble breathing but as I thought was that he was in a normal hospital as his faculties returned. Walton says he realized he was trying to buy three figures each wearing a sort of orange jumpsuit. Now they were convicts damn he wasn't. He was independent territory. That has got some clockwork orange ship. Go not the clockwork orange No as Alex Day these figures were not. Human Walton describes the beans as typical of the so called grace which featuring some abduction account quote shorter than five feet and they had bald heads no hair. Their heads were domed very large. They look like fetuses they had large is enormous is almost all brown without much white in them. The creepiest thing about them were those is they. Just stared threw me in quote their ears. Noses and mouths quote seemed real small maybe just because her eyes were so huge in quote Walton related a he feared for safety and got to his feet and shouted at the creatures to stay away. He grabbed a glasslike cylinder from a nearby show. And try to break. Its tip to create a makeshift knife but found the object unbreakable so instead the creatures as a weapon. Sounds like what I would do you back bitch sounds almost like a like a comedy we break it and you just can't break it. The trio of creatures left him in the room Walton then left the quote unquote exam room via a hallway which led to his vehicle room with only a high back chairs placed in the center of the room though he was afraid there might be someone seated in the chair. Walter says he walked towards it as he did lights began to appear in the room was empty so Walton says he sat in it. I mean wouldn't you? I mean look if you're if you're in some weird place you don't know where it's at and it looks like a captain's chair you're GonNa sit in captain's chair you're GonNa go full on Captain Kirk in that right. That's pretty crazy. But yeah probably so when he did. The room filled with lights similar to stars projected on a round planetarium sealy. The chair was equipped on the left arm with a single short thick lever with an oddly shaped molded handle atop some dark brown cereal on the right arm. There was an illuminated lime green screen about five inches square with black lines intersected at all angles and Walton pushed the lever. He reported that the stars rotated around him slowly when he released a lever. The stars remain in their new position. He decided to stop manipulating the lever since he had no idea what it might do. I mean he probably just. That would have been cool. The why didn't they include this be because I was like I as astral projection room or something. Or what do they call it? The the It's a wake on Star Trek when they go into warp speed astro. It's worth speed. Yeah because he was 'cause in Star Trek the ships not moving at warp speed. You're moving the space around you. And that's what he was doing. He's moving space around. And which is why the stars moved. See this not as terrifying as as being attacked in probe needle stuck in your I like they have in the he left the chair and the stars disappeared. Walton thought he had seen a rectangle or outline on the rounded wall. Perhaps a door and he went to look for just in. Walton her to sound behind him. He turned expecting more of the short large eyed creatures but was pleasantly.

There's some trademark alison billy banter and i'm a big fan of what stupidity does with the weekend observations reunion. It happens occasionally.

What happened with the bill walton what happened how how did he go about delaying a padres rockies game so bill walton is interesting and last night the playing the rockies and it was grateful dead night so naturally they had bill walton there and this is all according to sports illustrated so bill walton at one point i believe was playing the bongos and a tribute band. The grateful dead of course for the game is played with the dead before actually well. He was there and he was involved in every it. It seems like it was more bill walton night than anything yesterday because after bill walton played the bongos bill walton threw out the first pitch and that didn't go so well so then bill walton decided but walton was gonna throw out a second pitch and they allowed him because he's bill walton so in most circumstances that would be the end right not the case when it's bill walton grateful dead night the walton. I guess is friends with bud black. Who's talking about black..

"And he's like, do you mind? And I was like at first I was a little I kind of like I'll know coach he was like following me around the whole weekend. I was like what are you a little brother like, yeah. He was like following me around the cool to you know, I was cool. He's nice kid. Like, you know, why are you buying into this just let him talk? And then I'll tell you the truth of what happened with the whole time the whole time like lewd like Richard like, we would love to have you. Right. But also the kid Luke Walton and coaches like sitting here like convincing me that he's a pretty good player. And I was like coach I don't know kind of doing my own thing here. And he was just like, well, you know, the kid really wants to come. But if you're gonna come like just let me know, what's what's what's real. And I was like code fine. He can come to Arizona, and I'll commit to that was kind of like the story. And then he called me booed Olsen calling me like a few weeks. I, hey, Luke Walton ask for your number. He really wants to be in college. Right. So this. Goal. Top recruit can move forward. Right. We can move forward. We were both top recruits came out on the same weekend. He said I got to open spots. So we went out model. Simon's took us out. Mike Bibby two assistant coaches, Mike Bibby, obviously played in the league forever. Those are two host. We had a good time. Eighteen year old going to to see Aaron Shona. We were hanging out then night. And we were both like look I'm in if you're in. So he says, so we have very different recollections of the head the truth. You have your version. So he said, I let's see like I'm in. Let's do it deal. So the next morning, I'm a little hungover you're hung over little bit. Yeah. I think I drank at the time you did not at that time. I did. Coach Olsen took me to. The airport dropped me off first and said, look we have two scholarships, and we want whoever takes them. I I said coach I'm in right? And he said well, welcome aboard. We'd love to have you here. Are you committed five verbally? And then he took Richard went. Because Richard was from Phoenix that he was just driving back later. So he he met them later. And he said, well, we got a commitment from Luke already. And he said it was you know, he was he didn't follow. But I just met with coach I, but this is where but we weren't even friends yet like this. This was just like we're going to be teammates. This is where I knew we were going to become friends. So I got his number. I said, listen, we're room together. I said what do you have? And he said something along the lines of like, whoa. What was the concept? Playstation. I have a PlayStation in a VCR. I said perfect. I have a TV and in a stereo all see you in three months, and he was like cool, and we hung up the phone, and then we didn't talk to each other. So. This is you know, this is kind of guy like. What I got. We'll see each other when we see each other. And and then this. It's actually pretty cool story. Like, I don't know why you needed your again. He's giving a very different version of the story that I remember, right? I remember like this like like private school kid from from Hillcrest, California life all round. That's all. I remember. Right. Like again, like he said, he was a little hung over. So maybe his recollections of the maybe you're a little I'm getting there. Come on. I think all all kidding aside. Yeah. My story is true. So that's when we first met and then as teammates. We started obviously, building bond and friendship and then in the summertime we'd go stay at my dad's house. Tell us about our college summer's what what was it like growing up in? Oh, yeah. You made it sound like you would zero supervision in your life. No like he was like. When everyone wanted to be we we have look at him trying to process. No we had supervision. It just wasn't there. So like like my dad obviously worked a lot, right? My mother is a Saint she teaches parenting clemson's, so she, you know, she lived in saying that the different part of San Diego, but we were back and forth to both of their houses..

"walton" Discussed on You're Wrong... And Here's Why

"You know, I've mentioned how little I like Walton and for a variety of reasons, but I think he's actually doing reasonably good job. What this team right now? I think he's doing a reasonably good job keeping the inmates from running the asylum, and that is a tall task one of those guys in the prison. Stripes happens to be LeBron James Walton doing a fine job with this team. And he's coaching at the way honestly should be coached. Despite all the veterans that were forced on him. Kyle Kuzma, Brandon Ingram. Josh our in Lonzo ball are all in the top six in minutes played along with LeBron number one and Rondo at number five. The Rondo Lonzo dynamic is confusing. But if that's the biggest knock. On wall. And right now, he's honestly doing a heck of a job and not as many other people not many other people would have running smoothly. Well, let's run down another pretty big knock on Walden. You're saying that he's doing a good job. But on the court, it doesn't show that they're allowing the fourth most points league-wide and the second most points in the west at one hundred twenty point one points per game. And maybe defense isn't what what they're focusing on. But come on. That's awful you want to know the teams that are head of them the wizards the hawks in the pelicans. I mean, that's that's unreal. How bad their defense has been. And granted there point differential is under two point. So they're scoring, but they're not winning these games. Honestly, they should with, you know, having the best player in the world on their team or arguably a top two player in the world depending on your viewpoint. It's the problem here is the expectation and what's actually happening on the court or two wildly different things. And that is the reason why Luke Walton is probably skyrocketing up those first coach fired boards. I mean to. To have to have a sit down meeting with the GM ten games into a season your way to end of the season. It's unreasonable. I coached fired has already happened. God bless you tie. Lou butts talking about Walton Lakers four and six while basically, integrating entirely new roster teams take time to gel yet. Their numbers are not great right now. But players have to get used to playing with each other. Magic needs to stay hands off on this and let things settle in. Because they will know that's the reality of this. They're gonna settle down. Lebron James and his Lakers will be fine. I'd guess that they end up making the playoffs as six to eight seed, and they'll probably be a tough out for whoever catches him in the first round. Because that's just what a LeBron James team is we've seen this before we know what's going to happen. We know the ending of the story. And once all that's done. This team can continue to execute division that they've had all along on how they intend to be built Luke Walton is not. The problem. They're fine. Leave Luke alone. Ninety seconds. I just don't know what magic agreed expect a nine nine and one. And and I don't even put the full blame on Walden shore. The numbers certainly not looking great like I said, but the fact of the matter is such a big microscope on them right now as a team, and the only thing you're really going to do you're not going to pull off some sort of blockbuster trade where you get somebody big this early in the season because teams aren't willing to give up for the most part. Just yet. It's just very weird to me. And it just has that ominous feeling of LeBron tinkering and getting his way, and you know, all of that will first of all now that they got Tyson Chandler. I can't imagine there's going to be any problems any longer. But. It doesn't even matter..

"My friend. I have week eleven I am doing pretty good to be honest. Legal haven't coming off an eagles five. I don't know about this week eleven nonsense. You're right. Why do you do this to me? I don't know today. We're going to talk about why Luke Walton will not be the head coach of the Los Angeles Lakers seasons. And we're gonna talk about why trae young as the favorite to win rookie of the year right now. And we're gonna talk about why the chargers will not make the championship game. And we're gonna start things off as we always do with our number one segment. It's still Luke Walton segment today, and I'm definitely not killing time to set the timer. Luke Walton Greg tell me why Luke Walton will not be Los Angeles Lakers head coach at the end of the season. Chris let's let's take a a look at what usually happens in. Coaching situations with LeBron James, and I think you can reference the song of the show. Where we talk about LeBron ruining teams, and we're already on that path here with the Los Angeles Lakers. And we're only ten games into the season. I think their play they played nine games. Maybe maybe eight it doesn't matter. Either way. We already have to have a come to Jesus meeting with Magic Johnson. It's unreal. What LeBron does these teams? And I don't know whether it's the pressure on magic to rebuild a storied franchise signing, the biggest free agent possible that's out there or you know, the overall mediocre start at this team got to. But all the blame is falling on Luke Walton. Of course, it is. It's not the fact that your other biggest free agents are land Stevenson, javale McGee and regime Rondo all have their place in the NBA. But as a unit with LeBron you're expecting this team to all of a sudden become an automatic contender in the west with what you had Kyle coups with what you had in Lonzo ball, and all that blame is getting placed on a guy who made his coaching name filling in for Steve Kerr. With one of the best teams ever created. That's the reason why eventually Luke Walton is gonna find himself a job somewhere else. And it's going to be sooner rather than later. Lebron does this look at his track record Mike Brown run out of Cleveland after failed attempts in the postseason Tai Lue, that's not really on him. But he replaced the guy that LeBron essentially ran out of Cleveland and David Blatt. This just happens with the guys that that start with LeBron. It's a foregone conclusion at this point that Luke Walton already to be on. How could you be eight eight games into a season? And you're already having a conversation about potentially, you know, there's rumors going on their coach is going to be replaced. I mean this hockey timing. That's how head-spinning night is. It's like we just started. How can we do this? That was quiet. So I think I should kick this off by saying that I never liked Luke Walton, I have I've never ever liked Luke Walton. I didn't think he deserves the Lakers job in the first place based on what he did with a Golden State Warriors team that like you mentioned, I medium to high level. Former CYO coach could have won sixty five games with with that said what the hell were the expectations LA that? There's usually talking about firing Walton this early into the season talk about unrealistic talk about ridiculous. I guess that. I should also point out. I absolutely detest. Magic Johnson as general manager official team efficient in the NBA. I just don't think he's good at it to me comes off as smug know, it all who accepts absolutely no responsibility for his own actions for his own decisions. So if I have to pick a side here, I guess I pick Waltons and this is. This whole situation..

"walton" Discussed on Izzy and Spain

"When you put together an almost entirely new team, featuring veterans, you haven't played with before young guys that you don't know how they work with your new star. And then Hello every time LeBron James has gone somewhere. New think about how long it's taken for that team to gel. So this seems so premature to me the only explanation I can give is that Magic Johnson is in those practices and sees what they're working on and what strategy or techniques Luke Walton is using and saying I don't like how this is going to make this team better. Well, and that's a great point because I agree with you wholeheartedly that what we're seeing in the roster shuffling to me make sense. And to me, that's what we should be seeing if you're young if you're a young team being put together where you've got all these. Different pieces in you're trying to figure out what gets guys to develop at the right pace. Luke Walton as a coach is doing exactly what I would want. My coach to do. He is looking at. Hey, what combinations maximize everybody the best? And the fact is you're not going to know that from preseason basketball. You're not even gonna know that from practice. You gotta see guys in games to get there. I think the other interesting part though, in L sort of admit that I still this mindset from Stephen Smith. I heard talking about it earlier today is the pace of play is a concern within the organization in the minds of Steven A. And it makes sense. I mean, if you wanna look at one failing to Luke Walton as a coach for this team is is he slowing that pace of play down to maximize LeBron later in the season. He isn't. So when pace a play is an issue if it's an issue, and when you're talking about a group that is not getting back and playing defensively at all those are where the questions come. Now, Luke Walton was asked obviously as we would all expect about his job security. This is what he had to say. I feel like I have a great relationship management. Do you feel like you? Have job security. I feel like down here to job and coach. I don't I don't feel like I'm going into. Do you feel like the message got through the players might be little bit of a rollercoaster failed losing streaks that we talked about them before season even started. So. You know, here's the first one. Let's handle it as a as a group not give it life and keep working on where we need to work, and we came out today, and they had a great practice players were engaged involved talking to each other about you know, what needs to be done as well. As the coaches with is the type of environment that type of culture we want? So. We're a good place. Sara to hear him talking about the expectation of being able to focus through these things talks about one of the unique challenges that that is going to exist for the Lakers all year long Spain and Fitz on ESPN radio. Sarahspain Jason Fitz. If you're Luke Walton, you're not coaching like any other coach right now because you're not coaching like any other situation the eyeballs that are always on the Lakers one thing. But when you add to that the eyeballs that come with LeBron and the expectation that Lakers fans have it's one thing in my mind to say, okay, we'll fans have expectations. Who cares? They don't worry about the the basketball minds. Don't worry about that to here magic having these expectations already though. That's when you do have to start worrying about the other part of this the overused word and all sports distraction because it feels like it will become one. Well, and here's the thing. That's what a tough situation to be in. Because if you're holding out for what we all believe is going to happen, which is likely probably Anthony Davis to the Lakers were at the very least huge peak. Name free agent added to this. This is not the final roster that the. Acres are sending out there believing that they can compete with the worst. So if you know that your timetable requires you to wait until next season or maybe the trade deadline of this season..
