Dr. David Azerrad Defines Identity Politics AKA Oppression Politics

"David, welcome to the Charlie Kirk show. Thanks for having me, Charlie, good to be with you. So there's a lot I want to unpack, but let's start with this idea of identity politics, which you correctly and very wisely frame more as oppression politics or kind of the elevation of certain groups that are deemed to be oppressed. Let's put it that way. Why do you put it that way? I thought that was really smart. Because identity politics is misleading because it would imply that everyone is entitled to have an identity of which they're proud and that they want a defense. So you would think, oh, we used to have class based politics. And now we're going to have identity politics. But it turns out that in the realm of identity, Baltics, not all identities are created equal. They basically come in two varieties. It's a mannequin framework. You have the people who claim to have been and to be oppressed, you know the roster, right? So called people of color with blacks always first and foremost hence the shift to bipoc, black and indigenous people of color to emphasize that black is the most depressed ahead of the so called white adjacent Asians. You know, they're having problems with the Asians because they do too well in America. Then, of course, LGBTQ, women, sometimes immigrants, Muslims, but the holy Trinity is really the first three. And then you have the bad identities, you know? I don't know if this is used to you, Charlie, but you seem to fit the bill of people who are a problem in America. Oh, I am. I mean, I don't know if you identify. Yes, I do identify as a male. I will not pronounce or whatever the traditional western heteronormative patriarchy would say they are, but I'm the worst. I'm also a wasp. So. Yeah, that's not good. And then you could do something about your sex and transition, but your race you're not allowed to change. That's right. You're part of the curse, the white race. So, you know, even oppression. I mean, I don't look, I don't exactly know what to call what to call the current dispensation in America. Identity politics isn't good, CRT is too abstract. What the hell is critical race theory? It's basically

I'm going to say four four beers for this segment. Yeah no just kidding this segment here this one beer segment but to have him on. This show is guest. That's a four bureau there because we're gonna we're gonna be four segments one one beer per segment. I hammered by the end of that segment. radio not often and beer never. So it's going to be there. we go. We're going to have a good time with that. Steve small engine saloon looking for this guy like what does he do like what. It's all small engines. So if you think about it it's like lawnmowers chainsaws rotor. Tillers all those kinds of things weed eaters all those things that have all those little small engines so he does those repairs so looking for this is something that we have literally not talked about and probably over a decade and around the house. Oh this is. This is brand new content. We've never done including like one of those like generators generators out there running diane. He's got all these different videos. And right he's a. He's close to me he's vancouver. Bc issue area so looking forward to that so he's a northwest guy so we can team up on the east coast girl mike. Hey wanted to talk about wasps and hornets. Because right now if you've ever out at a concert or amusement park and you're going to throw something away in that trash can when you do it. It seems like you're throwing a hand grenade when you do it because it's like you pull the pin. You've got your soda or your beard canyon. You're going to throw it in there and it's like get throw it in a run. It's like you're throwing a grenade into the battlefield because you're thrown it and just getting out of the way because you know there's going to be a dozen gal jackets flying around. What yellow jackets. In this time of year. I mean they become highly aggressive. They attack. it's like they're on. They're on a mission. They know they're going to die and it's like they just go for it on kamikaze. It is it's i'm gonna sting everything in sight and take you with me pal. Exactly exactly they are just aggressive. Is hell right now. And that's why. I spend the entire summer for these next few weeks because i am. I've got my white trap out there. Which i told you about pursue try. Yeah we need to tell remind people about why trap and how this works because this is the perfect time of year. How do you get these guys away from the garbage can. Because they're just they're going gangbusters for any kind of foods. We whatever so. I have had the best to lock. This is made by company called rescue. Which is one of the big companies out there. Home improvement stores everything else. Have them but this is a wasp hornet and yellow drag trap. So it's a trap so you're not using chemicals. You're not going. After the bees you know the honeybees. You're just going after this. But it captures nineteen different species of wasps. Hornets yellow jackets in. So it works really well and like i have one right outside the studio here at my place outside the garage here and there's probably thirty thirty or so plus yellow jackets dead in the thing right now so i took out a small named by amazon. You told me what to order. i went on. I looked at the photo. It said why. I ordered it. And they sent me a knockoff. Product hate that. What is the hammer. Those guys with that. And so i didn't get the white so i gotta go back. In and order. I got some toxic chemical thing and i was like what is this and so i use it all spring summer into fall and i've really control them really well. I mean i felt bad. I had last year. I wasn't doing as good a job with it. And i went okay. I'm not doing this again. i feel bad. I had a guy. We had this product that i was given to test out and quite frankly the reason why i haven't talked about it is it didn't work. And they came out and installed it and i felt bad for the installer. He got up on the roof to put the antenna up and man. He freaking tore up by hornets last year. And i was like. He's i a couple of times. It happens usually once a day. And i'm like man bomber. You know so. I felt bad and i'm like no. We're not letting this happen again. And plus that could have been on the roof over there too. So i don't want them out of the garbage can. I don't want to go and especially at a festival or music. Plays or something this time of year. Right you're going. I like hot fast. Hot festival for hops else's awesome. But you go up to the garbage can and they're just swarming you right so it'd be great to have you put this next to the garbage can will. They be attracted to it and jess go away from the can well so i put them up in two places in my backyard. Because i don't want him there where barbecue and so i wanted to kind of get them into areas that are mostly wooded where you'd see them live and i will put them there and keep them going all year round. Have to put a couple of the you know the last probably a month before the the water because there's multiple different ways they work. There's this there's three different attractions in this thing to get all three of those different. That's why this is good because some of the ones the other traps out there they will only work. Maybe on the east coast or the south. Because they're only going after a certain species which can be very local. This one here goes after nineteen. It's the biggest one. I could find out there and it goes after them all but i go after them all year round and so yeah when when they get aggressive. I don't have him around to begin with so it takes them out bought. I tell you what there's a burger place that will drive a half hour to go to two years ago. It was so bad. It was end of august early september and i finally was like we're gonna eat inside. I wanted to sit outside and have a burger but it was so i had probably eight or ten of them flying around my head now. It sucks it really. Does i dread this time of year and always gets stung. Like it's like. I wait all summer long. Nothing happens and i'm mike here comes. I'm going to get insurance. Comes and our in trouble.

That's going to go inside your house and why not get a good fart fan for everything right. Don't do my sound effect the bathroom. Please spare me not really god. He's going to do good good. You'll never live that dowd. Make you do that around the house. Online dot com. And you can win. Enter to win because we want. Then you're gonna win this amazing quiet fan which i don't know. Do we want a quiet fan. We have to we talk about that for a minute because we talked about it last week but i still. Here's the debate you know. I like and a master bathroom to have the quiet fan. I hate to especially in my shower. Where i've got like an audio experience going on. I've not esteem unit. I've got i can watch netflix. I've been watching When i in my steam shower now when i go in there and steam for twenty minutes. I just turn on netflix. And watch the my lucifer show that i love and i can watch. Tv in there for twenty minutes. While i'm taking doing steaming in there for twenty minutes you're here blowup showing alliance a bomb. Got nothing you get you get sweet roses little during sex and beer julie. She has to put up with me. It's good it's good so yeah so anyway. I love that because especially in my bathroom. Because i've got this that steam room so in my shower a fully sealed unit. So when i go in there and turn on the steam. I'm taking this are showers about the size of bath would be so. It's five feet by three feet by you. Know almost eight foot tall. And there. And i jam that roomful of one hundred and five degree steam for twenty minutes. Yeah so i have to have a killer fan in there and so much team comes out of it and so i have a flat door in there. It's all sealed up but over the top of the door. I have a small transom. That pivots so when. I'm wanting to be done with the steam shower and take shower at the end of my shower. I can pivot that out and it leads the steam. Go out and it's an eighteen inches to my fan. So it's just right there there is so much moisture coming out of that. I will sometimes get droplets on the fan itself. Hit the tile floor just on the frame of the fan. Because i've just hitting so much waste your coming out of there so gotta be careful with that. And that's why it's all insulated duct that i'd put in that goes out in there just to make sure that's key. Yeah has about four feet to get out through the roof so far to go so and that's one of those things that that can be a problem too is if you don't You know don't have that insulated. If that's too hot or too cold up there you can create other problems. Yep condensation you don't want that to happen. I still want noise and my fan. I think they've got to have some kind of app or they can put something on there for me like i. Just you know when you're at somebody's house you just. I don't know. I don't want anybody hearing anything going on even the toilet flush out the be. It could be just p anything. I just like it to be quiet. I don't want to do my stuff. Oh my god. Why are we talking about this exciting myself. All right so we were talking about bats in the belfry last week and our number one and we just ran completely out of time so we extended this conversation. A little bit in rodents over to this this show here because we wanted to really touch on this because it's a little more detail than we just in two minutes. We're going to hit it now. And you are talking about bats. They are like flying. Rodents basically flying mice if you went up and They are creatures of habit. So if they know that they've been in your house. And i know this depth because i had a problem. They come back to this odor that they kinda put out so year after year. They'll fly back to your house and they will make their way in highly aggressive to the fact that even if you block them out they're going to find another way in so we went through some serious steps to make sure that all the entrances in and out of the into the sof events and then of course in your attic space were sealed and what was interesting. I was telling eric so. I had this. I kept seeing bats. This was years ago. I don't know about seven years ago. They were flying in. And then we're coming out climbing in not coming out badly and people were saying like oh. They're just up under the shingle. They're up in the shot or you know it's nothing to worry about. And i said i don't know i you know they're not. I was just really observant. Not seeing them. Come back out so i went up in the attic and i did a real look thorough. Look and i saw nothing in the attic. So i'm like well. Where are these suckers going. Because they're going in under single and disappeared good so finally. I thought maybe they're up sofit because we had overhangs and i was explaining to eric that they could fly in through the side and get into the software and sure enough. That's where these suckers were going. And so i sent my contractor up. And i said you got to remove that safa take off the plywood underneath the edge of the soften. He's like you're crazies. Like they're not in there. He's like just flying around the probably in the attic. And i'm like i don't think so. While he climbs up the ladder removes the plywood and proceeds to get covered in a wheelbarrow. Full of guano. The pours out which is bat. Can i say that anyway. So this bat guano falls on top of him and he's covered in it and he's like holy crap you were right. And so what i found out about bats. They like they will continue to keep coming back to their same place. Even if it's filled with bap. Poop an pete and And so that's why they're really grows and they carry all this i think. It's crypto cryptosporidium. These bacteria that they carry so once you get them in your house. It's not fun and we had to make sure we got all of that sealed up and now they're back again so now.

"Up in the wind chimes. Gosh i'd love the idea that just were kicking around walking around with a cup of tea. No idea that there are semi alive. Spiders. that are mummified in the wa- like cool even chapman Asked just how smarter they. I've heared they're much more intelligent than bees and other stinky boys and christina. Weaver wants to know. I wanna know how the parasitic wasp mind control works. How did they do it. Well What time pack there you'll k. Buddy all right well. Here's here's the thing. I think one of the reasons. I think we kinda hold. This layton envy of wasps that they're maddening. Maddeningly efficient at exploiting our every weakness. And they do it without this burden of ethics and etiquette and Moral compass that that we have to deal with and so here. They're racially successful with stimulus. Response an instinct and here. We are with these big brains and we can't remember where we parked the car and and yet san joaquin female can find her nesta dude so young they have a way of making us. Look stupid but instinct. I think is a lot more plastic than we used to think it is and so it gives it has some malleability and wasps still have have to make choices and things and sometimes those choices are our evolutionary lee successful and sometimes they're not just like any other organism so i think are they intelligent only as much as they have to be and i think that applies to just about every animal. You know. there's no waste in nature. Everything is just the point. It needs to be to survive when we throw in our very rapid changes to the landscape. That makes it a little bit harder for them to succeed now. Changing gears completely to the the samba was kind of thing well. Our definition of venom is changing a lot. It used to be kind of a well. Is it a lethal thing or is it isn't a toxin And if so what kind of talks and well basically a venom now is anything that changes the impacts the host in one fashion or another and that in the case of most wasps. It's it's either partial temporary or complete paralysis of the host. But in in the case of some of these wasps especially bre koenigs and ignorance which are very closely related groups. They also have a virus that is peculiar to them that the female inject when she laser egg and she may inject a mild or some kind of venom that also influences the the the host in some way or makes it easier for the virus to to do its thing which is to basically. Yeah all the brain of the host to to bend. Its will to facilitate the wasp's offspring and so when the in the case of some caterpillars are in one case a lady bug Paris detroit Though host survives the parasitic experience and winds up hovering over the the pupa stage of the wasp and is responsive to stimuli in a defensive fashion and is thus kind of brain controlled guardian robotic guardian of its own paris accord. Wow what a beautiful thing though. I mean that is just evolution years and years and years and years so just to think of how many innovations to get the right type of neuro toxin. That would work like that. Oh there's there's washed have rube goldberg lifecycles. It's just insane. Where they don't even attack the host directly they attack it's host and won't complete their life cycle and less the intended host are intended para satori takes the host. This is what's saying leave of all if you need a new genre of horror or suspense to get into. May i suggest reading about parasitic wasps for hours as i have just done past two. Am so many species so many stories so many victims. It's bananas okay. Really quick there are these earthly beings called jewel wasps that are gorgeous metallic and they can use their stingers to essentially do brain surgery on their cockroach hosts and they feel around with their stingers inside of its head and inject venom into very specific regions and their venom. Does things like simulate of flood of neuro chemicals that makes the cockroach compulsively clean itself for about half an hour making it a nice clean host for her baby and then as the roach is primping. The wasp is off. Finding a good borough comes back breaks off a roach at ten a- and gets a nice long quench from and then uses the remaining antenna to lead this newly unfettered zombie roach like a fricken farm donkey to a tomb seals. It up lays an egg on its leg and then her baby feeds off of this alive. Stunned roach for days and days until it makes its debut in the world. Busting out of the borough like a curtain like a shiny metallic be jewelled queen at the best palm springs drag show. You have ever witnessed. Wasps i mean. Are you even able to even right now. Had to go around the room. Picking up the pieces my brain every day after i love it. You just got to be inundated with wasp facts like oh what a dream. I love that. Kathryn morris asked. Is it just random. Chance that i'm stung in the palm frequently by wasps on metal railings. Grab bars and even wheelchair parts. It's always a wasp but not a be. This is a disability challenge. No one mentions do. Do they like shiny things. Oh i saw. That's not something anybody should endure. The what's at least but well they. They'll purchase different services to groom themselves. Allot so i often. You know if. I want to take pictures of job and hang out. Around the edge of a field where there's shrubs and things with broad leaves and so they'll they'll land on their know groom themselves or they'll land on their to mate or the males will land to guard Territory or something on that order. I had so yeah. They'll land on surfaces. You wouldn't expect just in the course of of needing to groom or rest for a minute or something like that but They're not going to be there that long. It's a hot surface. The metal thing kind of surprises me a bit. I would expect them more on wood surfaces and and foliage and things of that nature Interesting i wonder if they're perched on it being like. Why is it. Every time i sit on metal someone's pushes me with more on this and i couldn't find much however wasps do gravitate toward metallic car grills because they like to snack on bug guts. So maybe catherine you ran over a bug or like a little bit of fresh sidewalk pizza cheese there was on your wheels. That was just irresistible. I dunno fairy much a hypothesis. But i hope it doesn't happen to get everyone. Don't let her even. If it's pizza the repercussions can go on and on anyway. Speaking of sucky stuff okay. The questions i always have to ask against. I know that we are here to absolutely adore wasps and we do love them and they were beautiful but what is one thing about studying them. That sucks. you're so bloody fast. That's a compliment. I love that. I mean they. Just don't sit still for anything..

Wasps well is demonstrated that paper. Wasps can recognize colony members from their facial patterns. They can't recognize humans as far as i know. Okay but the the benefit of that is that it. It is part of the social order Paper wasp was. Don't have a a queen in the sense of of a physically different female then like you know. Yellow jackets and hornets have a physically larger female. That does nothing but produce eggs but paper. Wasps are a little bit lower on evolutionary scale and so all the females are capable of producing eggs if they're not bullied by the dominant female and so they learn to recognize each other and act accordingly so a wasp nest can produce like four thousand new queens and in the fall when the temperatures dip and all the workers die off. The queen's are like sia they go find an abandoned animal burrow or a hollow tree or like a junkyard car and they survive the winter because they have an antifreeze compound in their blood so then they build their own nests when it warms up they make a bunch of new workers and the cycle starts again in the spring. of course. that's the social wasps. Some queens. they do get out. Sounds like a very brutal version of some of our high school experiences now of painful external pressures patron rich flight asked. What's the deal with the skinny waste. What's their diet plan. And this question was also on the ganglia of meghan walker and first time question. Nascar's lily taggered and teed mortimer and other want to know. What is the point of the wasp waist. The insect won the nineteen th century fashion. One and how did the lower bits of their body not just fall off. This is really bizarre. I had forgotten this until i was researching. The book without abdomen of of the wasp actually starts on the rear end of thorax. It's called the proposed. Dm and so. That's the first dorsal segment of the abdomen. And so everything. Posterior to that is called the gaster. General teeny tiny tube. Waste of some high monopoly like ants. And wasps is called petiot and their shapely rump. Area is the guest or which you're welcome to call yours from now on now. I was looking at pictures of paper. Wasps snus and how they hang from cord like a chandelier filled with wasps and it turns out that that stock at the top also called a patio. Okay well why not. All wasps have that thin waist like the soft wise and horn tales which are more primitive wasps. If you want to frame it that way have still have a cigar shaped joint to the thorax a broader joint authorities. But when you have that hinged adamant it gives you great flexibility when you're trying to stinks your host so it's like a gooseneck lamp. Yeah oh it's a good excellent Algae yeah why you. I hope never to encounter one up close but i commend. It not makes sense. So do they have their is early. One little intestine that goes from the top to the bottom and then the basically the elementary canal runs through the thorax access. Almost all muscle. By the way it's what operates the wings and the legs and so it's it's a really dense muscle structure and then the abdomen houses the stomach and the reproductive and excretory organs that is amazing of always wondered. What's in there. Because it's such a little pipe cleaner to also. Did you ever wonder why a vespa scooter is called a vespa. I did so. I decided to google for several hours. So upon seeing a redesign of the little motorbike which has front part with two handlebars and thin floorboard and then a juicy but dunk that houses. The motor one of the engineer said an italian. That fricken thing looks like a wasp. Are you kidding me. I love it and so vespas means wasp in italian. Oh and they've been buzzing around the world. Ever since then. And i thought god damn that must be where the cocktail vesper gets. Its name but no. The vodka and gin martini with delay is called a vesper but it comes from the word for evening not because giant freezing cold chalice of straight grain alcohol packs a bit of a sting. I'm gonna go to first question. Asker zero peo- tokyo wants to know. How is it that wasps and bees are similar. Looks as but wasps have evolved to consume meat well. Bees are content just to rub their butts in flour dust. Why do some wasps eat meat. I know when. I used to be a caterer when they were yellow jackets. It'd be like just throw a piece of ham over there to divert them. What's about that well again. You know the adult wasps or not consuming protein matter. They're taking it back for their offspring. So yeah so. They'll i've watched a yellow jacket cut a piece out of my turkey sandwich and fly off with it as like the one by the way one thing. I want to caution all your listeners..

"In the wind. They may be unidentified species. There are so many little bugs that we haven't formally met yet. I lived in an apartment and in the summer. i'd get little matt. Sometimes it oliver. My bathroom mirror and it wasn't until i found a dead one looked at it. And sent a picture to leila higgins a from the entomology episode and she was like. Oh that's a wasp there used to be a fig tree right under my window and so they were probably fig wasps which so many of us who have heard that if you eat a fig newton. You're eating so many dead. Wasps is this true or false guard a even if it is there so infinitesimally small your mind. That's fine to make you burrow into figs and live inside a fake right. This this is correct and one thing does the. Usda and the food and drug administration the two entities that control our food quality have allowances for numbers of insect parts because it's just impossible to exclude them. And that's how ubiquitous insects are. And so even if you're not eating a you're probably somewhere during your day. I had let us on my sandwich. I probably had an eighth. I don't the only pollinators of fakes. Are these tiny wasps that have developed this. You know mutual listrik relationship with figs. And it's ridiculously complex. A great many species some things do not require pollination by the way but for those that do there's not only the fig wasp but there's other wasps that are toys of the fig wasp and probably pairs the towards the pairs toys wouldn't surprise me either. I mean a lot of this hasn't been completely figured out yet. Lesson insect is of economic importance in one way or another. There's not a lot of funds to study them. And so a lot of what we know. We owe to really curious and determined scientists at. I'm gonna find funding to do this because it interests me ill. There's a shortage of that kind of money to do these kinds of things but that we desperately need that okay but one thing they have figured out is some hot ask us about how figs are made a tradition. That goes back evolutionary about eighty million years. Are you ready for this okay. So a fig is an inside out flower. Let's start by. Just try to cope with that fact right there and then a lady wasp digs into it via the bottom of the figs. It'll butthole and in so doing she rips her wings and antenna off and then use blades on her face to worm through the fig pollinating the figs internal blossom and then she dies she dies there. She's like i'm done here. And then her babies hatch and the males of them have no wings they just. They don't need them. They don't need them they mature. They need female before she hatches. A fig wasp bore knocked up. Can you imagine you're born pregnant from some wingless creep who was also your soul mate. And he's like. I got split bitch and he digs a tall out but once he's out he's i fuck i just remember don't have wings and you're like thanks dude are gonna motor. You go out his tunnel you take some of the pollen with you all over your pregnant newborn body into the hall of another fake which once again is an inverted flower now before you dramatically wretch the thought of fig. Apparently the figs were like this is a convenient system for us. It's probably bad. Pr though so figs. Make an enzyme called feigin. That digests the dead wasps so vegans. You're pretty much in the clare. don't worry about it. There's so many alive things all over everything we eat even when we try our plant based best. Everything's crawling something else. Oh and the crunchy things in a fig urinary and believe they are you ready for this. They're seeds just seats kanda and traffic. You know when it comes to getting say bigger and bolder. What is kind of next up the line. If we're going from these fairy wasp stuff igwe and then what. What are some of the ones that we commonly see. Oh ok well. If we upgrade to this is where you're naked is gonna spot the thing mud. Dobbs are really good example of a solitary wasp that we see frequently. And if we don't see the waas we certainly see their nest. Which look like somebody just threw a clot mud under your lever or whatever right as oh. That's most of those are the creation of one female wasp and so she. You know builds one sale of mud after another and in each she. She stars spiders that she gathers realizes and sticks in there and then seals the mud. And the larva that hatches. From the eglin she laid in there then consumes that stash of still living paralysed spiders. Oh my god that is so hard core. I didn't realize it. Mudabbir were making pantries full of dead spiders. Is that right months. Blacks are acting as pantries fulla dead spiders or is it juicier than that do. The larva pairs is it. Well it's living or is it dead in their no. They're they're they're living in cold storage and most of these answer. They're susceptible to say moles and fungi and things that are bred in the fridges since stuff so there paralyzed stay fresh. Basically entomologist will tell you. Insects do not have pain receptors. So it's not. They're not feeling nothing. That doesn't make it any less gruesome. I don't think hey. Thanks inside the body of the spider or how they're just. They're just feeding exterior early. When they're done there might be a few legs left or something. Oh wow and then okay. So mud burst. We might see clods of mud inside. No big deal. It's a tomb for a living zombie like mummy. Okay no biggie. What other ones do you think that people commonly see i. I don't know the difference necessarily between wasp and hornet and yellow jacket. So what's the difference. Goes guys okay. You want to talk about social species again then. Yellow jackets are primarily what we would call boreal insects that is that they're they're northern in their distribution some of them now our whole arctic they either exist on all the kindness or they've been introduced from one to the other so that's the northern hemisphere basically the further south you go yellow jagged. Start to peter out a bit and then they're replaced by paper wasps which are the ones that. Look a little more slander. And they build paper that have no covering on them And so those you often see under the eaves along with of dubber nest okay. Oh yeah those are the ones that you can see the com- they look almost like those plants that people get really afraid of right. You know those plants that have holes and people are like. That's my took mitrovica phobia that okay. So this is called triple phobia. And i just went out the two scientists arnold wilkins and jeff cole are studying the visual stress related to it. So they may be. The world's leading triple adjusts and they put a two thousand fifteen paper titled assessment of triple phobia and analysis of its visual precipitation. They found that seventeen to eighteen. Percent of the population has a fear of clusters of holes around objects. So it's pretty normal and that images and the natural world just don't have that characteristic unless they are dangerous animals or potentially contagious skin diseases. So it's inbuilts in us or maybe you're right of the triple lenses on iphone. Eleven pro cameras. Those costs two thousand dollars also very scary on.

"Mean that is happening all over the globe right now and you never knew before so many mysteries in the world of wasps. Some teeny teeny like a tenth of a millimeter. Long one thing. I think so interesting about wasps. I didn't know until i visited the university of california riverside their entomology department at that wasps or not what we always think of with your jackets and madonna and stuff like there are these tiny little and they called fairy flies. Yeah yeah okay. So can you tell me a little bit about the range from these. Little fairy flies. All the way up to so-called murder hornets. Yeah until you're already bristling at the murder hornet. That was unfortunate. Okay first of all. Let's lay out the lifestyle of most wasps and that's a Toyed lifestyle and a appears toyed is basically a parasite that invariably kills the host and in the in the case of fairy flies and and several other families of tiny wasps by the way their toys of the eggs of other insects and you can get several tiny egg. Paris toys out of one. Egg of the host is crazy. So imagine an insect's egg and into had awasa his jammed. Does it of her own babies into your baby and her baby's eat your baby from the inside out be. Don't imagine this. But the point is paris toward wasps especially these teeny tiny black shiny ferry flies that a lot of bang at of their buck for eggs and there sometimes used as biowarfare agricultural pests and some very visor nearly microscopic. There's one that barely exceeds the size of a pair of mitchum whom i yeah yeah and and it's got this entire stuff with only a few hundred neurons or something. It's just ridiculous. How complex such a tiny thing can be and they get bigger and bigger than until i mean. Obviously we probably assume that some of the wasps we see out in about our nats right probably. Yeah you're not likely to see these things because you have to set up flight intercept traps and malays traps and then you can put them under a microscope to see them. Yeah yeah malays. Traps side note are the white hence that are covering ajar. Entomologist set them out in fields or yards to collect a sampling of local bugs. And all those little things that might just look like dust motes.

"Mind. How many times have you been stung. And how do you feel about it. Not very many oh good for you And and those times has been my fault disturbed a nest by getting too close or netted the thing and it's found a way to jab me but most of the time i'm i'm gentle with them and they're gentle with me right now. We have a paper wasp nest with one loss bonnet in the corner of our back door and we come and go out of their with no problem. I mean it took us a couple of weeks to recognize. It was even there so the idea that wash sir super aggressive probably is misinformation and exaggeration. And you know the media does a good job with that and you're the business of pest control you know it's it's to your advantage to paint them as very aggressive animals. Maybe just because they're not fuzzy people don't trust as much and are they not fuzzy. Because for the most part they're not collecting pollen and nectar. While they're they. Are harry actually summer. Really harry like velvet ants which are actually the females of velvet answer. Wingless they look big. Furry ants running around on the ground so velvet. Ants are wasps even though they're not ants nor are they made a velvet and they're called cow killers even though they cannot kill cows so the situation is indeed a little hairy most other also out hairs. That are called seatac and sita usually have some kind of sensory function. And so they're either detecting sense or air currents their vision isn't necessarily really good. They're good at detecting motion in lieu of that. They're see take and detect air current. Imagine if i mean. I guess if you have a lot of back here you probably could tell your action. The breeze is coming from. I suppose we use it similarly. Maybe i've got. I've got a ponytail right now because of it but so you're not the only one out there for short you know i'm so excited. Hear about like work out in the field that you have to do you in collecting stories and data for your book. I mean i did study entomology. Undergraduate at oregon state eric's mentor was the late. Dr george ferguson. Who was a world authority on wasps and donated his collection of eighty thousand specimens to oregon state university oregon state sep. Hi how you're dead wasps. anyway eric. To learn about their behavior from doing field research. So things are just stunning. I was in massachusetts. And i watched this mason wasp which is a solitary relative of of yellow jackets and she was going over the surface of this curled up leaf and i. I knew that there was a caterpillar in there. And i knew that mason wasps hunt caterpillars. But she didn't go. After it the way i thought you would which is to just by the whole wave drag the thing out. She forced it to eject. And when these caterpillars jack they basically bungee jump out of the their release a threat of silk. They hang off of but they just leave out of there. Little curled leaf And so what she does she forces the thing to eject and then grabs it in mid air before the ground nice couch. Nfl stuff right there. Nice work in radio. You said she are a lot of the loss that we see are familiar with are those females are excellent question. Well let me put this way when when people asking a wire. Wasps such bastards in actuality. It's only the females that sting so they're bitches. We got that question so much of like. Why are they such dick's but they're not right. And the c word. Thank you very much juicy. But but again it's only though our definition wasp tends to be the social species that we tend to have negative interactions with and all the workers of social wasps are female and males are only produced at the end of the colony life cycle and they're released to mate with with queens or females from other colonies at the end of the cycle. But that said we see a lot of male wasps. Also the males are either lounging around on flowers eating nectar and stuff but his job is to find a female them enough emails of had to do all this other stuff they have to build a nest which is often a burrow in the ground or existing cavity and a or something of that nature and then she has to go hunt food to store for her offspring or for those that. Don't make nez. They just have to find a host and lay an egg on or in it or in the case of gall wasps they have to find the right host plant and as they got a lot of work to do the females and for that we should admire them. I mean there is washed your kind of symbol of female empowerment zuma's. I'm concerned but the males are either lousy around or they're defending a harem of females and so often the males are the aggressors even though they can't sting there trying to chase off any intruders that might harm their group of females. So are a minority of wasp species but are simply more visible because the hang out in crowds and maybe you've seen their nests dingle dangling from somewhere now. The majority of wasps are solitary. Their chilin solo. Maybe there pollinating. Maybe they're laying their babies on a live spiders or cockroaches and just tucking them into devour their victim alive and then getting out of dodge. Oh word alert so a parasitic organism kills its host but a parasitic load. Let's babies kill you. Can you imagine getting eaten alive by a baby. How pissed would you be so embarrassing. But back to the social ones who hang out and clicks hauer these things that have tiny not of neuronal. Ganglia doing it. How are they doing it. I can't even organize a group text. Do they communicate with each other. Like with social dances like beasley or no no for social wasps. Their main form of communication of all trotha laxest which is mutual feeding. And so you'll see if you watch paper wasp nest which i recommend doing l. Maybe use binoculars but he also you'll see two wasps appearing to kiss and what they're doing is they're they're one is giving food to its nest mate and they also do that with the young. The larvae are fed protein matter and then they in turn regurgitate kind of a sweet secretion that feeds the adults..

"We discussed what the for this a. b. and it was a come out all. Just how do you said it. There's different pronunciations. there's speak solidarity and sexology. And i'm not sure which one is preferred. If either i definitely think if there's a phobia attributed to it. There should be an apology right. That's absolutely right. Agree and perhaps even a failure for people who are drawn to study them. Right oh i would agree with that as well. Can you tell me a little bit about how long you have been into bugs. Okay i usually go with my mom's account which is that. I became interested in all things nature in kindergarten. And i vividly remember. My teacher was a gifted artist and she drew a trapdoor spider on the chalkboard one day and i was just mesmerized by that and then she told us how it behaved and i was even more fascinated and and so my thing for for nature has always been the underdog or the things that most people disdain. It was like you know sharks before they were cool and snakes and spiders and insects and things of that nature. and if. I'm truthful that i got interested in wasps initially because no one could call me a sissy for catching some something. That could fight back. But then when i learned about how they behave and their natural history is it. My interest just took off all the more. Were you ever interested in bs. I or did you go straight from like spiders and underdogs to wasps. It's good question. I i think. I've had affinity for you know flying stinging things probably and by today's measurer bees or are just a subset of wasps. Anyway had gone from the predatory lifestyle. Two or parasol toyed lifestyle to the pollen collecting lifestyle. Pardon me hold up. Bees are a subset of wasps. Tell me everything. That's gone on wells ongoing debate but the trend is is towards the idea that yeah beezer essentially pollen collecting wasps and there are other washed by the way that that are what you would call true wasps that also collect pollen just a quick taxonomy side so my friend worker pedia told me that wasp is any insect of the narrow-waisted sub order apocrypha. That has not be nor an aunt but wasps do share a common ancestor with bees and ants. So wasps come in a whole big variety of genera from vespa. Hornets and vest bula aka yellow jackets. But again there's giant biodiversity including wait wasps who collect pollen. What are those called called culpan wasps not surprisingly and their solitary though. They're not social. Part of the thing about wasps is that that the are public. Definition of wasps is very narrow. It's basically what we call a hornet or yellow jacket or a paper wasp one of the social species of wasps when in reality the overwhelming majority of wasps lead solitary lives and only a fraction of them are capable of stinging us we. Yeah we the first thing you think about when you think of a wasp is you. Think about a ton of them who want to hurt you. And so you're saying both of those things are flimflam. Well it depends on circumstance if you aggravate a nest of social wasps. You're going to be in for it. I mean their venom. And they're they're staying is used primarily in defensive their nest because their nests contained you know very soft and helpless grubs and eggs and pupa mcgann defend themselves and so the workers are unleashed at the slightest hint of hostility. Not lost are social and only a fraction of them staying. Y'all so when you think about hornets nest or a yellow jackets nest. Those are only one type of wasp the ones and what would you do if a bear pounded on your window and poked. It's snoot near door hungry for your babies. Maybe you would brandish the venom gun. Attached to your but to defend your several thousand newborns. They have so many babies. What about when you describe the body of a wasp. What makes up a loss visit the type of wings or mouth parts therefore winged insects and their wings are connected by these hamuli which are little hooks on the hind wing that join to the edge of the hind edge of the front wing so that they act as one pair. Wow they don't. They don't flap independent of each other. But the sting by the way is really a weaponized. Egg-laying oregon. I love that. Yeah in the evolution of of wasps the females went from just this injecting egg injecting device basically to venom injecting device and then put their egg out through an overlooked rather than through what is now. They're stinger o. I mean okay. Let's let's ask question.

It's beautiful and incredibly interesting I thought i'd be afraid and that speaking of that. I learned a new word the word for the fear of wasps wasps. Maybe you want to pronounce it for me. Oh gosh i. It's latin i think it's seeks a phobia. I believe phobia. Yeah on your preference a subcategory you say of intimacy phobia fear of insects. Which i don't understand but a lot of people have that I think were influenced By so many outside forces that you know it's easy to become anti-homophobia even if you don't start off that way yeah so can we define what you as. An entomologist think that a wasp is. Because i don't think you just mean the guys in the paper nests on my back porch eaves or hanging in the crab apple branches in the backyard that i come upon and go. I don't think that's all that a wasp is so can you tell me your version of who's a wasp. What's a wasp right exactly. The our cultural definition of wasps is is what you just shared. Which is the social wasps that we tend to associate with aggressiveness. because they're defending a nest full of their vulnerable siblings in f- larva or pupil stage that can't defend themselves so they're adult siblings. Do that for them. But the scientific definition of wasps pretty much encompasses. It's trending actually towards encompassing the entire order high monopoly which includes wasps bees and ants and so all all those are traditionally known as social insects but the overwhelming majority of wasps and bees are solitary. Meaning that each Individual female creates her own nest or in some cases. There's no nest involved at all. The the wasp will simply lay an egg and a host and then go on to do that. Repeatedly

Sexual Harassment Claims Against New York Gov. Cuomo: What We Know So Far

"I Way didn't even need to get to this point with Andrew Cuomo to realize that he needs to resign and he needs to go. This started way back in this one has nothing to do with sexual assault rustling 105 50 K of why I appreciate you. Being with us. This is an absolute I would say It's a shock, but it can't be because the guys is too greasy punk, and it's not really surprising learning the tactics that him and his staff used. To essentially eliminate any any threat of a claim. The first woman who came out and accused Cuomo of sexual harassment was back in December. It was done on Twitter. And the media didn't really jump on. They were like, Well, let's cover this who Let's cover this, which is also a departure from the meat to movement. And if you're looking for signs the Democrats never really cared as a party. About me too. This is more evidence of it. And there was reasons why, you know, going back years. They didn't care about it. Like everybody knew. Harvey Weinstein was a scumbag. Even I knew I didn't even work in Hollywood. But I knew the rumors about Harvey Weinstein. And the fact that the Democrats ignored it because he was a big fundraiser for them. There's pictures of Harvey Weinstein with every prominent Democrat, probably for the last 20 years. Finally, like, Oh, crap. These allegations are bad. There's this public relations campaign to try to make Harvey Weinstein not look as bad as he Woz. That's what Andrew Cuomo's office tried to do, but it's how they did it that Mike was alluding to this is reason enough. Cuomo should resign. So Lindsay Boylan was her name. In December. When the tweets came out with Cuomo's office did is they wrote a letter. And they attached Lindsay Boylan's personnel file to that letter, and they started handing it out to all the news and paper organizations. New York Times Washington Anyone they knew to try to downplay What she did and what she claimed. They said in the letter, which Mr Cuomo The New York Times is reporting helped write weaponizing a claim of sexual harassment for personal political gain or to achieve notoriety cannot be tolerant. Tolerated false claims demean the veracity of credible claims. So he tried to bully the woman by releasing private personnel files to the newspaper hoping the newspaper would go through, like all well, she had a couple of problems. Couple of write ups so we can't take this seriously. Luckily, the newspapers didn't run with it. The fact that this is how politics works is the part that makes you go. Cuomo's a scumbag. Well, he is a scumbag and the personal gain what they were doing, essentially, Woz. Telling the News outlets. That there might be something off. There might be something you'll get pinched with later on, so stay away from the story. I think they went away with it, Not because I mean they didn't run with it, Not because they know he's a scumbag. Everybody does. But the what they realized was oh, with this kind of stuff that we're seeing. You know what? I'm not going to touch that story. That's it is more. I just want to see why a Really do anything else because you know again, it's tough to prove these things, because if you only have one source, and you say it, do you run with it, And then, of course, the second woman came out and in said it after Lindsay wrote more of a detailed description that we talk to you about a few weeks ago, and the second one came out. Then the third woman came up to seven women now that have accused Cuomo of harassment. And there's a whole bunch of other women, a couple of a dozen other women who said they didn't necessary harass me, but he asked inappropriate questions. He touched me all the time, and I didn't really like it. I didn't know who to turn to It's so bad that the fact that there were reports on Cuomo while he was the governor. For these types of things. They went to his senior aides, and they said, Look, this guy's a pain in my butt. He's touching me. He's asking me about sex. It's disgusting. It was never stopped. I mean, what happens in the normal place of business like of I accuse Mike of sexual harassment. I go to HR and I say, Hey, Mike is sexually harassing me. I won't tell him I liked it. Get close. Yeah, I'm just saying, you know. And then there's a process that follows. After that. There's a follow up process. There's you know, investigations that happen if the claims air, credible and serious enough and then it's on your file, and then you get the warning. And, you know, we've known people that have had warnings in their past two from HR. Yes, it's taken very seriously by the by the corporate world. Joe Biden last night was asked if these these allegations are true. Should he resign? Yes. I think you probably end up being prosecuted too Well, okay. A strong stance from President Biden, if if if the investigation is that true, Cuomo responded to that. If you you committed a crime, you can be prosecuted. That's true. But what President Biden said Wasps. We should do an investigation over. I'm looking it up here. Hold on. One thing. I think we figured out. Let me look through my law Stack here, Hank. Thank you. Oh. Sexual assault is a crime. Okay? Yes. Sexual assault still is a crime. So, yes, he could be prosecuted for this. And he should be prosecuted for that. There'd be nothing better for me to

Fiona Aquino is a report of the ABC TV channel in Paraguay. She described the scene in the capital last night. We can't say yesterday was a total disaster here Innocence soon because everyone is fed up with the government's corruption. That's why 4000 people were out in the streets protesting everything WASP very peacefully at first. But then we have like some incidents. We even have hot, someone who died in the protests yesterday. Now the protesters are angry over the government's handling off the corona virus pandemic. What are they worried about? In particular, people are out protesting because we don't have medicines like attract audio and meanness alarm in the hospitals. And people have to spend like two million won years or four million war nears that are like $600 per day to be able to buy this medicines. We don't have diverse sins here in para white. We are like six million people, and we got 4000 for since last month. Right now, The hospitals are collapsing. We have like 1000 in 200 cases per day. And like 300, people are in the intensive care unit. We came get any more people sick because we can And give them that attention they need. Why hasn't Parag wide got enough vaccines, the government said. At first we got like an agreement with the callbacks facility. We were supposed to receive four million vaccines for two million people. Because the calf like two shots, we were waiting for those persons, but we never got them. We are still waiting for the Provokes facility to give us those vaccines. Then we are actually waiting for the Russians were scenes to the government did not made all the deals. To buy those vaccines for the Para William people. That's the main problem. I see that there are accusations that the government has been stealing millions of dollars that could have been used to deal with the Corona virus pandemic. Could you tell me more about that? We got $500 million for the health Ministry. We don't have the medicines when it in the hospitals, So we even know that some people from poor families had to buy. Medicines that were or generally from the health Ministry. But if you go to the drugstore you can buy that attack Korea or bad mean a solemn that wasps from the health Ministry. So that's why people are talking about corruption. We even talked to some families day show US photos off the medicines. And it has imprinted in them. This is from the Health Ministry, and you cannot sell this, but people were buying those medicines. The president says that he's going to appoint a new Cabinet to deal with the demands off the Protesters. Is that going to keep people off the streets? Do you think I don't think so. Actually, people are right now. Going to the downtown wasn't young once again because people are fed up. Everyone wants the president and the vice president to go and this is not going at all.

Indoor Dining Returns in New York

"Right a big day for pandemic street stricken restaurants in New York because a ban on indoor dining is being partially lifted. Hundreds of restaurants have gone out of business in the past year. Others Barely afloat. But as Tom Brooke reports the move to bring back indoor dining or being on a limited basis, it's not being welcomed by everyone. Chicken sizzles on a grill at Friedman's restaurant on New York's Upper West Side, the establishment is alive. But much of the restaurant industry in the city is moribund from Grand Eater is like the Gotham Bar and Grill, which may reopen to the more ordinary nearby Good stuff, Diner. More than 1000 restaurants have closed fallen victim to covert 19 so start indoor dining on Friday. 25% Governor Cuomo's decision this week to lift the ban on indoor dining up to 25% of capacity is seen as a bit of a lifesaver. Jonah Phillips is the owner of Friedman's restaurant group. We're excited, too. Get our guests back in the restaurant. I think something that we've lost. Is that excitement and energy that you felt when you walked to a restaurant that had guests, innit, eating and drinking and dining. It's fun without indoor dining restaurants in the city have relied on take out and delivery service to stay in business. They've also resorted to extraordinary steps to make outdoor dining and freezing temperatures feasible in some instances, creating huge bubble light structures protecting diners, AFIS it outdoors and eat. Some won't be eating indoors anytime soon, Even though Governor Cuomo has decreed they now can, among them. New Yorker Claire Wachtel, who were sipping tea is an outdoor space belonging to Friedman's on 72nd Street. I won't go into an indoor dining Until this is all over because I think you're relatively safe if you're outside, But if you're in the dining area, it's I'd be too scared to do it. Even the rescue workers are now eligible to get vaccinated and restaurants have implemented numerous safety measures. Some health experts caution that the return to indoor dining is premature. Go out to dinner. CASS is from Columbia University Medical Center opening Internet now, at least to me, while we're just first getting to the point of controlling the spread of this virus Does not seem like the right next step. While mindful off health concerns getting restaurants to flourish economically. It's what Andrew Ritchie from the New York City hospitality alliance really wants to him. That's the priority over the past year. We've lost more than 140,000 jobs in New York City's restaurant industry and indoor dining has been opened up throughout the rest of New York state at 50% indoor occupancy since June. Partial lifting of the indoor dining band is precarious. With infection rates increased. Governor Cuomo has stated it may be reimposed those still working in the hospitality business. No, it's going to be a long, hard slog before the restaurant industry in New York returns to anything like normal. Nikki Joyce is a waitress at tea and sympathy. A much loved British comfort food eatery in the city. Will it get back to where it wasp where you have people, you know, shoulder to shoulder for deeper bars. I just can't see. Unfortunately and sad, but I don't see that happening any time soon. Fervent hope is that Governor Cuomo's partial lifting of the indoor dining band this week will mark the start of the long road back. Away in New York once again boast, but it's home to one of the most lively on fairy restaurant scenes in the world. There you

The future of migrant caravans

"More grand caravan is one of those phrases which feels intractable associated with the recently elapsed donald trump era a term which decade sense will like coffee or very stateful genius or four seasons total landscaping separate. Those who can recall this benighted epoch. From those born too late or those who not altogether unreasonably drank too much the migrant caravan. You may recall was one of the vast menagerie of bogeymen and hobgoblins which trump and his media cheerleaders deployed to profitably inflame. The voters and viewers the caravan was telling a marauding horde of insurgents bent on taking your jobs stealing your women perpetrating terrorism proselytizing communism or whatever paranoid fantasy. You were having yourself. The migrant caravan was reason to build that wall. Lock up your daughters stay tuned to fox. Welcome the tucker. Carlson vote republican and generally run around yelping to set by angry wasps. Shortly after having set fire to your own trousers another migrant caravan is on the move now it will be instructive and hopefully at least somewhat heartening to see how the administration of donald trump successor response before we get into that however it's probably proper to be clear about what we mean when we say migrant caravan as outlined above it has been repeatedly slammed up into something other than what it is by various people and organizations whose good faith cannot alas always be taken for granted. Thousands of central american migrants are vowing to continue their march to the us border even though president trump wants to turn them away the migrant caravans about which donald trump became agitated where a phenomenon which pete in late two thousand and eighteen. They were mass trudges of several thousand migrants setting out from central america and plotting doggedly towards the united states where they hope to find safety perchance prosperity. The constituents off the caravans were from honduras. Guatemala nicaragua el salvador and mexico. All countries offering the less fortunate citizens plentiful reasons for leaving political instability gangs crop failure crime drugs poverty etc. The caravan on the move right now is estimated at some eight thousand strong and appears to have originated in the honduran city of san pedro. Soula as off this broadcast. Its chances of reaching its goal. Mexico's border with the united states appears slender early this week. The caravan was intercepted as it crossed. Guatemala guatemalan military and police who detained hundreds of migrants and scattered others with teargas. Nearly a thousand people have already been sent back to honduras and guatemala's chief immigration official modena's has laid down a hardline declaring that you cannot and will not get through president joe. Biden's rhetorical response will be more humane and compassionate the president donald trump's low though that represents but the outcome might not be much different biden's domestic policy advisor. Susan rice has already pointedly given interviews to spanish language media emphasizing that nobody should assume that the us mexico border will be flung. Open on day one. The administration biden previously. Served that of president. Barrack obama deported more than three million people. This latest caravan is obviously not the first large scale migrant and refugee x. flow of times and it won't be the lost. It seems reasonable to assume indeed that any noteworthy disparity in covid nineteen vaccinations between rich countries and poor ones will lead to still further people hitting the road and given what would be reasonable concerns about spreading the virus. Prompt even less compromising responses from destination countries than some. We have already seen what will likely not happen. Regrettably will be the large scale descent of any com- clear-headed logic on the subject in the united states or anywhere else. Those who are furiously against immigration will continue to insist that imigrants ra menace that asylum seekers. Bogus that we should build walls and turn around boats. Those who are passionately in favour of immigration will continue refusing to countenance the idea that countries are entitled to make decisions about who comes and who goes and indeed that it's better that countries do as transparent legal process around migration and asylum lynn's immigrants and refugees va legitimacy they need and deserve and deprives shrieking xenophobes of oxygen as is the case with this and far too many other issues however the loudest voices on both sides will be largely motivated not by their actual opinions on the issue by the visceral loathing of their domestic political opponents and the caravans and the boats will keep coming

School gate racism, education reclaimed, and family found

"You have caught an enormous something or other dragonfly. It's huge thing. I can't resist innocent and kill it. But i thought maybe we could katie swan and then if we get anymore. Let your guard just alana. Line me i'm a phd. Cantuta university of adelaide so working on parasitic wasps. My mission is to take a bit more of an appreciation awareness of what's around them which these kids have wholeheartedly. Fish-net khanna looking. It's camouflage really like i'm bringing you powerful personal stories from three generations of indigenous. Australians today talking. Racism in classrooms transcending the past triumphantly pushing past the low expectations others can have for you and on knowing who you are but hey this is a science camp. So let's get some of that good stuff out by the river without insect. Nate's i love it. Because when i was little i used to do this in the backyard. Just for the fun of it like we did one And stuff and then done things. We went touch the real big success. That's scary this year. Eleven student catherine. She's from queensland. I've always had an interest in bite of. Because when i was talking about it in school i just found it fascinating. The way things like adapted to the surroundings and how strong some animals off much study in unique. I definitely want medicine like the medicine or science and even in science the medicines. 'cause on sir fascinated about the way humans walk like animals too but mostly humans like al brain the actual in a workings about nerves and system and everything. I just find it so fascinating into the people with knowledge of that. It's just it's mind blowing to me. If you average or strait olander you make up about three percent over strategies population but just under two percent of all students enrolled at university are indigenous. That's growing by around half a percent over the last decade or side when it comes to unique courses in the natural and physical sciences. It and engineering. Less than one percent of students are indigenous for fifty medicine. That's around two point. Four percent and of course completion rights alario. But this camp is about helping to change. It's about road testing university. So my name's malcolm raleigh. I'm an epidemiologist with sorrow food and nutrition and things are about to get very real for the students right now. We're talking about their activities for the rest of the week in particular. Their inquiry is quite a lot of pressure for them. They'll need to spend a lot of their time thinking about the question that they want to investigate for the next few days and then they'll have to be ready to presented by next week. You asking them to do a scientific experiment in two days scientific inquiry that might be an experiment but might be some other activities but in today's yep They'll spend a lot of the allison day. Doing it will be under a lot of pressure. But based on previous years they do a great job so they've got to collect data they definitely have to collect data that to interpret data and to present it. All of those a pressure situation said the pressure is on from pretty much all mice now not quite a couple of days. I think feel it from tomorrow morning. Research can be conceded. A dirty word safe westhead is a young research scientist and regular mentor on these caves. He comes from reggie country new south wales research was something that was dumb on aboriginal people not with aboriginal people and certainly not let by aboriginal people but as we get more aboriginal academics in high positions within the academy. This is where we can start to see a change of the culture so we need young people. All of the students present curious and inquisitive mind and from my perspective. That's all you need to be a scientist. The rest is just learning specific language to arts of the specific questions that you come up with and that's just a process anybody can do that.

An Indigenous Mixtape from Lima, Peru

"Basically this week's episode is a catch wa language mix tape and this mix tape starts with track. One introducing librado. Yeah that's clearly now my voice. I'm getting mixed eight hosting help from my friend. Dj just john. Okay here we go now. That's lebron connie emceeing at the national theatre here in lima. This past february he's rapping in a mix of spanish and catch wa if you haven't heard of catch wa that's kind of the point. It's the most widely spoken indigenous language and latin america about ten million people speak it and liberal bringing it to people in a whole new way. His mc name librado. Connie means i am a free man and a call and response you hear throughout his concerts is catch wa is resistance. I met librado while in lima peru. And i was in lima on this. Totally non far-flung gig filming young rappers and beat makers which have been doing on and off for the past seven years all over the world priscilla. Anyway i've always been interested in ways. Music leads to cultural mashups like catch one hip hop and how that intersects with identity and the way people feel about themselves and when it comes to documenting hip hop it's always a cool story when different languages and traditions get mixed into the music but it's kind of hard to tell what that mixing means. What does it mean. When someone is wrapping in their ancestral language does that relate to a language living or dying and house. All that culturally significant politically significant. When does it lead to change on. Its face it might seem like the fight for catch. Wise is about lima's pride in their past and that's true but there's another crucial thing at stake here. It's the ability for indian culture to survive and to evolve into the future so to get the significance of what liberals doing we need to start with some background on ketchaoua. But you don't hear much catch. What outside of the countryside in peru ever since colonisation spanish has been the dominant language of government. Business education. Really life in general. And there's of course all kinds of cultural implications with that as well in the broncos music though you don't hear any of that higher he swapping between languages constantly and letting catch while on hooks his call and responses. He's young but he's like a classic ninety s hip hop head and when we hung out. He seemed really comfortable in his skin and sincere about everything. Oh and heads up. We were talking spanish most of this interview. So you'll hear some overdub. English shorter track to deepen the andean bronx. This is teach them what either made from purple corn. It's very delicious from corn. You can even make teacher. They hold a credible. We're walking down along. Walk walking for a little bit. We are eating a kind of Proven popcorn and we're drinking a purple corn based drink. Ginger morava balmy out here. It's not that hot again. Noisy sirens is a cultural hub for peruvians. It's like they're la and new york matching into one about ten million people live here and the population's growing we're walking through downtown. Lima librado told me that when he went to new york to perform for the first time in two thousand eighteen a lot of what he saw reminded him of home unusual ways. You told the crowd that he realized he was like a rapper from the indian. Bronx they loved it. You know. he's a rapper. So he's good with metaphor and there's something very hip hop about his light experience. He grew up in a world that was hostile towards identity specifically his indian catch. Wasp became identity twenty mike cornell so librado wrapping and catch wa flowed great to my ear as someone who didn't have a lot of linguistic and cultural context. It's just good sound but sometimes locals were shocked to hear the language mixed into hip hop track three welcome to the donkey belly sky. And what are those. Locals is my friend oscar durand he's producing and basically co hosting this episode with me. Oscar grew up in lima in the eighties. And i left peru in two thousand two to study and live abroad as a photo journalist. The first time that occurred without those music. I was surprised you know he was not the first time i catch wa. I heard it when i was in crew. Obviously but it was the first time that i hear someone rapping ikeja and he was a new context for language at the energy. So i knew that. I had to meet this guy told me the story man. I wasn't there so you know. I already heard about him. So i was really curious about his because as a journalist i have my my antennas. You always scanning for interesting stories to last time when i was visiting peru i was there for work. I send a message of media and she told me. have this concert. why don't you come. I couldn't make it but him and his band were playing this rehearsal space so i just went and then we start chatting and it was just such great energy because i felt like i knew these guys forever and then they start playing and it was just the most amazing experiences having peru because he had this concert just for myself. But what was it about him that shocked locals. I mean there's great musicians in peru for sure. So what was it about librado. That made him stand out. Well its first surprising to catch on. Because when i was growing up catcher was really around me in school. Remember catcher being mentioned in our history class when we were talking about the inca empire our glory days but those days are long gone and many people would not associate catcher with innovation or success.

Were about to get a big glimpse into Disney Pluss future

"Has been having a huge year and the company is poised hold investor meeting on thursday. To preview with the service will look like in twenty twenty one so joe. what are you expecting. Yeah we're gonna get pretty much the the layout of where disney plus goes from here. That could mean a number of things but surely it's going to mean that we get a better sense of what programming is going to be coming to disney. Plus next year as well as how i think disney is going to kind of officialize the role that disney plus plays only in the pandemic in these extraordinary circumstances but even after the pandemic when Things have whenever that may be when things go back to semi normal the role that streaming generally is gonna play four disney's entire operation. Everything that it touches on. That's a good because it seems like over this last year that they've been making some moves to really position busy plus as the core It's really the future for this company. Yeah you know. That's one of the kind of question marks that we're going to be answering not weather streaming is important disney because they've said that they're going to realign television programming infrastructure around the idea that streaming is the primary focus Disney of course. Everyone knows it for movies in the marvel movies and stars and for parks but it also owns. Abc broadcast network of course disney channels espn. So we know that streaming is going to become the central programming tenant of how it approaches the content that it creates but we don't know is whether disney plus is going to be there numero uno primary focus considering that they also have espn plus and hulu as other streaming services in addition to streaming service india. And so i think this event has also been answered. The questions do do they continue to have three services that operate separately in the us. Do they wrap them all into one. And have you know a giant. Do they make it into more closely net bundles. we really don't know how they're going to be. Approaching streaming given that they have three services and have said that stream is going to be such a high priority. Going forward gotten and this year saw the launch of peacock discovery plus. Hbo max and of course the dearly departed qube. How did how does he plus or stand above this crowded field because for me seem like it was one of the clear winners this year. Nobody came close to disney. Plus i mean no. That's not only in this past year when there have been when there's been such a frequency of new services launching like even any services launch before disney plus no service has had as explosive a rollout as ni plus has and. There's a lot of reasons for that. And we can get into it but really at this point disney plus it at about one year since its launch it hits seventy three million subscribers. Now that's still a far cry away from netflix. Which is you know head and shoulders way ahead of everybody. At almost two hundred million subscribers will ride but the things to keep in mind our disney got to seventy three million in one ear and they also did it when other services that have been rolling out. Got to maybe eight million got to In the case of Be did so poorly that they shuttered could be shuttered in like six months. Seven months It's not it's not like you show up and watch a streaming service and you're guaranteed to just you know attract wasps and parades of people. It's really hard to do but disney has compared to anybody else that's launched a new streaming service. It's done leagues better than any anybody any other. That has come before. Normally i mean a lot of that has to do with the mandalorian. The buzzer baby. Yoda starwood a general marble is. It's other big franchises. And we've yet to see any real real program yet. We will come january one vision in terms of this investor event. We can we expect to see more out of one vision as well. Some of these other big mar marvel products coming down the pike. Yeah i mean. We don't know exactly what they're going to be showing but you can expect that we're going to get some something about one of which is coming up on january fifteenth. It's going to be released on disney. Plus i'm sure they're gonna want to show off footage from that to get people excited about it. We might have questions answered about when the other marvel original series. These are the movies like these are the shows like one division that are tightly-knit within the marvel cinematic universe the same actors that play characters in the movies are playing those characters on the series. And we still don't know when the falcon and winter soldier show is going to be coming. We don't want no win. The low key shows coming. There's a hawkeye show coming. And then there's a whole slate that goes even beyond that that we don't have any details on so in terms of just specifically marvel. I'm sure we're going to get a lot of updates on that. Were the other big story in streaming last week. Was when hbo max came out and dropped the bomb said all its warnermedia films in twenty one films like suicide squad in dune will drop on the service. Same day as theorist It's endemic related. So they're extraordinary circumstance surrounded. What do you think that means the industry. And how do you think dizzy I think that disney probably already had a game plan in place about what they're gonna do for their gigantic big budget. Tentpole movies next year The question is whether or not they adapt that plan based on the fact that a week before what that plan was going to be announced this thursday no matter what and the question is one week before that event when hbo and warner brothers announced that not only will they be releasing all their all their movies next year on streaming also gonna make it free with no extra cost on each hbo. Max so you don't have to pay for example with disney plus the structure. They kind of set out that they might do. Is there milan. Release when the live action. Updates and milan couldn't really be released in theaters in the traditional blockbuster style way They released it on disney plus the same day that it wasn't theaters but they charged an extra thirty dollar fee in order to stream it so it was available what's known as day that's win streaming home video and theatrical release are at the same time it was available day and date but you had to pay a lot more money to get it what disney has said. And what did you see. Yo- hinted is that they've learned a lot from that milan release and they expect to give us. Give everyone an update. On what what. They called premier access. What that's gonna look like going forward. Will that mean that. They'll continue to stick with this thirty dollars. Price point will that mean that they've they're going to release only their biggest biggest biggest movies with an extra fee. Or are they gonna follow suit from. Hbo and just say hey. We're not gonna make you charge a fee at all. We're going to put it on disney plus for everyone to watch as soon as available. We just don't know exactly those details. But i'm sure we're going to get some clarity about what expect with all these movies. That people are really missing. That three dollar from along was announced stirred up a controversy. A lot of the gut reaction was. Why am i paying three dollars on top of this attraction fee. But they've actually talked about this. Maybe you know more. But we got an indication. Powell moulana actually did that was actually a blueprint for success or Dollar seated scare people. This i mean this question. Touches on one of the frustrating elements about movies like milan or like a marvel movie going to streaming. And that's you know we. It's a black box in a way it's not entirely blackbox. But it's not like when a movie is in theaters. Those box office reports. You know you can't fudge You can't lie about them and he can't keep them secret either like it's just like out there. People know if a movie tanked or movie was a smash success because it's we have those metrics but when something goes straight to streaming we don't know we don't really know except for what disney has told us and i haven't told us anything specific about how in london they've general things that tech companies from the tech world. They'd like to say like we're very pleased with the response and delighted customers and blah blah blah blah blah. But that doesn't really tell us what their expectations were and whether or not milan exceeded expectations or failed to reach them. Not any native nice for for this thursday event if they're tuning or they're looking forward to seeing a flood of trailers or sneak peeks into these upcoming shows any advice for them or or warning. These things tend to be more investor. Focus at what. what are you expecting. Or what can these folks expect. Yeah it'll definitely be. It's an investor day and if passed is any precedent than it'll be a very long presentation. Maybe not as long as i don't know we're used to apple presentations with gone for like what feels like four years so it's going to be a long presentation but there will be designed for an audience of analysts investors and press And so it's not meant to be a consumer events that said even though there will be an emphasis on things like projections for Subscriber growth and like you know what is it are words that like normal people don't care about at all this is disney like show business is their business and they know how to impress people.

WASP Documentarian Erin Miller

"I'm talking today to Aaron Miller. Now, Erin is not a pilot, but she is the granddaughter of a wasp that's women's airforce service pilots, and she has a fascinating story to tell. So Aaron, thank you so much for being with us today. Thank you for having me your welcome so What I'd like is for you to to share with us what what your grandmother has shared with you about her flying story, and then we'll get to your story of how you how you made things right for your grandmother. But can you tell us how she got her starting aviation? So. My Grandmother. Elaine. Dan. For harmon was born in Baltimore Maryland in Nineteen nineteen and she grew up in the city and was born at home in her house. And had two siblings and was very independent. sporty did a lot of rotor bike and very athletic growing up and she attended the University of Maryland in College Park. Maryland for college. and. She did lots of activities there as well. She was a cheerleader she was on the rifle team swim team. She was in a sorority in all kinds of things very active and her senior year of college. She saw an advertisement in the school newspaper for the civilian. Pilot Training. program. Which I'm sure your listeners are familiar with but it was a program in the nineteen thirties to have more people in the United States prepare to get a pilot's license and Senate was I guess subsidized by the US government and it was offered through a lot of universities and university. Of Maryland was one of them. And Anyway. So they had an advertisement for this program where you could learn how to fly and it costs thirty five dollars. Or forty dollars and you got thirty five hours of flight training and ground school and whatever. So my grandma thought that would be cool. So she applied and at the time which doesn't sound like a big deal you're signing up for a class nowadays. But back, then if you were a woman, they only accepted one woman for every ten men in the class. So you kind of had to I don't I never asked her if there were comp competition about this or she just happened to be the only woman that applied I don't really know but anyway. So, she asked her dad for the money and she also had to get a permission slip signed because she was female and under the age of twenty one and not married. So her dad had to sign a permission slip and that's how she initially took pilot training lessons West, through this program at the University of Maryland. Very. Cool. So after she got her thirty five hours, did she continue to fly on her own? Not Really she I think she did a little bit but she basically that was in nineteen, hundred forty, sue her last year of college. She got her pilot's license and then not too long after that, she got married in the summer of nineteen forty one. To my grandfather, and then as your listeners I'm sure. Well, aware six months later Pearl Harbor happened. So I don't think you flying around was generally something that happened. A Lot. So at that point, my grandmother and grandfather were moving around a lot to support the war effort they lived in Ohio at one point for a while and we're kind of working at different places. And and so how did she get back into? So in nineteen, forty, three, I believe there was an big. The Women Airforce Service pilots kind of became newsworthy and there was a little bit of news about them. Newsreel. The old newsreels are in life magazine, and so my grandmother heard about this program called the WAAS. And thought she could apply and she asked my grandfather. If he thought it would be a good idea and he thought it would be a great idea for her. So she applied and she kind of didn't really think she would get in because she really the most she had done was that civilian pilot training program she didn't have a lot of hours. And she kind of applied and thought oh well, we'll see what happens but they accepted her. So that's how she ended up becoming one of the Watson. Then she started training in April of Nineteen, forty four where did she go for Carini? She was in sweetwater Texas Avenger field, which is in western Texas. About an hour west of Abilene Texas. Now. Did your grandfather go there with her when she went there No. So my grandfather was an engineer and he later became a patent attorney, but he was not in the service because he had a physical defect so he was So, he couldn't serve in the army. But he was I think recruited I would say by a company to actually manufactured airplane parts called Jack and Heintz which some people may not because I've seen their parts in the in the warbirds He got sent to Asia to work on a plan to repair aircraft for the US military in theater in the Pacific. So the planes didn't have to be sent back to the continental United States to be repaired to save time. So he got sent over there to work on that program as a civilian, and so he was gone during this time when she was trainy. tweet water. Aircraft was she trained in? So she was trained on I think they were all trained on basic plane. So things like the the steersman PT, seventeen, eighteen, nineteen, eighty, sixes, bt, Thirteen's neither all planes that she was training on. And what did she eventually flawed she I assume she was multi current and flew a lot of different airplanes as wasp. Yes. So all the WAAS flu lots of different planes and there were groups of wasps that were trained to fly every plane that was produced during World War Two from little trainer planes all the way up to be twenty nine bomber. So not every wasp was trained to fly every plane obviously but they're little groups trained to fly like you know pursuit crafter bombers or whatever. So. She was trained to fly bt thirteen's to train men in instrument training. So that was her job after she graduated. So she was transferred to Nellis Air. Base. In Las Vegas. And with her best friend from the WAAS Maggie Gee and Magnesia was to- target pilot in Las Vegas. So they were transferred there and my grandma trained men on instrument training in the thirteen. And she was also has some time as a co-pilot on the B seventeen.

"There's been a massive avengers data mine leak. This is from sub Reddit user six plus four equals fifty two on the marvels vendors sub Reddit fifteen unannounced characters have reportedly been data mined from the Marvel's avengers bad. And before we get into it, I gotta Say I'm pretty excited about this like this game I'm. AM. Higher on it than I ever thought I would have been after playing it but I'm still not where I. Wish I was you. You're talking about what the Batman Games like I wish this was just a single player vendors game, but it's not we're getting this online multiplayer. From what from what I've played it like the single player Linnea Thurs cinematic stuff is definitely the stuff I've enjoyed most but like this list is exciting for the same reason that I was really excited to find out the model was going to be essentially the main character of the story which is yeah. Give some love to some of these characters that haven't been big enough to be MC you. Staples yet like those are the gangs that are going to get the people come list I'm excited out totally, and before I even read the list I, WanNa point out that we're in a very interesting place with marvel right now when it comes to licensing their characters out both for movies for TV stuff but mainly for video games is what I'm talking about because what we've seen in the last. Five six years have been some pretty interesting and. Not Great Decisions made on the licensing front of Marvel versus Capcom Infinite for example, where it was very clear that marvel had a heavy hand in what characters are chosen not chosen like having no X. Men in that game is just San. Right, that's the thing is there's definitely wild model has only been interested can use it to mock it the MC you otherwise, we don't really care like. You don't want. We don't want to get it. If it's one of the properties that like show, we can put the X. men in a game, but someone else owns the film tonight. So why would we totally and that's I think where we really getting hit with X. men minute fantastic four particular but. He's not just above marvel studios, but he's also kind of above marvel as a whole. I think we're GONNA start seeing a lot more synergy in a way that doesn't feel as a things are being excluded but more as like a well rounded thing to get people more familiar with the smaller characters or different characters smaller not even the right. That, we might not used to seeing constantly constantly constantly. With Mc, you can say that Oh the EMC you. Is only focusing on the same things. Then you introduced the world to guardians of the galaxy so it's like They're doing great stuff too. But so looking at the list here, we got AAH man the Wasp Vision Black Panther Doctor Strange Falcon Marvel mockingbird quake winter soldier scarlet Captain Marvel Kate. Bishop. She Hulk and machine. Pretty Great List yeah definitely, there's a few really good ones on that like I I'm really excited at that. Kate. Bishop is on that because. Clearly the better Hawkeye. More.

"Kind of Oriental Ism it's a, it's a counterbalance to that saying, both you know the Chinese are as intelligent, so they can have that stereotype. that. Bad. Visa the. Vice just just as easily. And also that the this stuff about like the death is desperate thousand cuts in episode four on the interstate stuff, and that depicts a grams of made up on the Cabanillas and the death of thousand cuts is now a bake whether that whether it ever happen. Do not spit. It's a, it's now Nelson Oriental not. Chinese. Thing. So I think that's all interesting and and you know obviously is like one of us is yellow. Stuff like that. It's all. It's all signs that Bob homes he's trying to undercuts is is having fun at these Benson and given the time I think he wouldn't have compared to now where you you need to have a book speech saying racism is bad. Okay. I. Think give given the time I. Think it's you know the the cussing is that, but he wouldn't have necessarily felt like he needed has adults to stand up and sight bowls. I know people have a problem with the doctors sing about them. I think when they get after they've being attacked. Doesn't one of the tones as as little main, and we've attacked by this little man and all these other little men. And I think that's a bit a Hebrew guess you. Also this I think it's just adults have been adults terms also being the delta. I. Think my my fundamental point would be the tens away sharing is to use a buzz. What institutionally racist. Face it the because it comes out of a what we would now view as a racist institution and a vase racists toy and just. Just yes, and just end up his counts just in. Just an insensitivity to certain things that we now we now that make us cringe and we will, and so you know you wouldn't the advice makes us uncomfortable. Obviously, on these days I. Guess You. The obvious thing would be the. You'd have A. Chinese. as well. Probably. will be adding to be added to the mix is. In some ways in some ways is tokenism, but you know you could say that yet. But that's that would be that the Hollywood. Movie Solution. To doing this, say if you wanted to make a movie about. Friends you tones, then you don't say then you stick in. In the the good. The good. Chinaman who? Who is the you know? Pretty paid by Jackie, chan out things. Yes. So the issues is less Chinese it's the other caricature parts of the Chinese the no one else gets a decent shelter. Yeah. Exactly. And I think in in this day and age, you look at the look at the entire structure and just think you can't do that. Obviously, reasons that you're stereotyping an entire vase by one characteristic in the the every Chinese. Person does into still in around each of these women so. Is a fiendish tongue member. Do you want to enter this free pool or you quite happy not? Back. There was a very good essay at Other recommend anybody reads K. domes essay on the debt sons wing trying to fool Menchu. But more importantly that the history of the Fuhrman shoe trope and eventually kind of split here between Chang, who is Chinese and really isn't but is A. Moustache twirling. Villain. Yes. So Vegas Point I'm just talking on the dramatic level. The Chinese characters here are have been tricked and our enthrall of grill. I think tanks such a tragic character. It's not entirely clear to me at what point he realizes that this man. Is Not a God. But his not even deserving of his pity. Let alone his his service, the doctor seems to know that. Chang. Knows this. says. You know this man isn't a goal. Don't Ju Chang just come out and say. He just answers through telling his own backstory. Yeah. Just one other thing with the go-to Chang and his his Sevilla's -ation. So I think. I think that stuff when he finally get stuff on state in episode four with Chiang's acts in the. Thing. That's right. Because that's where clearly there is this respect between the doctrine Chang. Adults the doctor goes into the lion's den Chang has the opportunity to say to kick him out. With the the trick and the gun. If he council is. I. Think that level of Yeah. Grudging spots and so on. There's another even putting. It's it's interesting. He's just a fascinating couch. Yeah brilliantly played. I picked up the line. Is One of the areas which doesn't really bear close scrutiny in the plot, but they the time cabinet is taking twenty years to get from what it's been in London for. The Halong again. Sometime in the eighteen seventies, isn't it? Come. Back. And realism searching for twenty years. He says this. But he's any apparently relatively recent discoveries in London. There is discussion. Of. Chiang playing for the crowned heads of Europe has unknowns. So, I imagine that that had traveled long way round. Is. Seems to me that Chang has been raised. Will we know raise mentally from his simple peasant background? But also have been raising society. And, and then now things are starting to deteriorate again. I guess we we're sort of at the is a couple more kind of minor points or something of a wants to make. I'll tell you what the thing we haven't mentioned. Mrs Nettie Gusset. Homes having fun. I guess we yes, I. Guess We talk about how good Louise's as well. William. Trying to link combat. crispy. Benjamins. A. Link it into the next door if anything. Is Interesting though you were all those years when people used to say. Jagan, like. A series of being discussed about the two characters and I always seemed to me like a story. In the Green Room rather than it was. Not. Real and. Have to say I was a bit cynical about it. And, I didn't even get on the wagon instantly when the big finish companion chronicle was made. But somewhere down the line, maybe back series three or four. I? Thought. Well, clearly, there's something happening here because they keep making the things. And and so I got bored and start buying the end. It's extraordinary that you pull and and others. This seem Aventis for these two characters to have in. So many different ways I. clearly thing that could have happened Nellie come down to it but yeah. It wasn't that I could have envisaged. So many stories in such a such, a rich outcome from from from this, this one story. and. Whether or not. That was peer serendipitous. So interested in whether or not, but poems aiming that way. The weather. Prized him. Maybe that's why said five is full of them. Because, he was just enjoying this new combination. It, feels structurally Sunday. You might do. You might look at it on paper and that's neat. That's neat. Way of doing it. Stepan. Adult Trophies, one, Ron, Carey to Ulta to have the to Hasim zigzagging between the two. The donators.

But then again, he's supposedly didn't realize these coming double acts until. I. Think fans talented. Think until seven someone. Say would put us at zoom in Nineteen eighty-five. As actually.

Something we come to. You. You've got that Leela and life with very nice relationship. I guess with with Jake I. Mean it's not. It's not quite as extremists at, but there is that element of Jacob trying to social climbing and you know life is clearly social superior, but but the, but he's not so far out of his depth that he can't adapt and the. Yeah. That's nice aspects, and in the end, it feels like life of being a kindly character. Anyway, we've already seen that and the other episodes he sort of allows him to come onto the same level and then for them to to develop a good report again. I tend to when the documentary DVD documentaries filmed. I didn't check on assuming as before travelling, crested starting recording at reunited for big finish I. Think. So that Trevor says some interesting things about life is Karen safely through which pressing in to where it goes after the store in tills found life. must be rather lonely, rather seventeen man. And this meeting Jako getting building these adventures. Opens up his world again for him, an explains from light. I point of view why the two might stick stick together. After this. Always wonder what was in it for Jaeger still wrestling with that. I, I think it's The ability to do to help with the other classes maybe. But I don't think it's any cynical social climbing. Out For anything. I don't think it's very happy with his job as the most. I didn't think it's is so as such while I think, it's I. Think it's it does his his own self image. Good. I thought the fat. He poised himself in anything adults. In, Scotland Yard. Deploys himself. Well, the fact is helping. Detective Brunch do their do their job I? Think he can get an EGO is it gets? Yeah. Didn't think it's social climbing in that sense of neediness. How does he is a character because line foot? Very, nicely, drawn very three dimensional is his roots as a sort of Dr Watson figure. See much more apparent. Yes. Jayco has the pattern of the Bennett. Sex. Characters from. Yes. But that's I mean whenever you see him, do that for a minute suit. The rest of the time he's thought through what that. person. would be like offstage agents isn't coming from Bohm's imagination because he loves these Kana characters, the roots in Dr. Back within ORG from. Yes. Yes. Yay. and. We don't get see cj doing his Leonard Sachs thing until upset four. Enough. And yet still is steeped in that. We have the recognition of what the what the media is before. Yes I. Mean. That was what surprised me as you say you get. You get very early on in the story you get. Welcoming Chang as he goes off the stage, you don't see him as you say in in his in his role is actually. Introducing the guest. Teaches in the acts on the stage. Until part four, don't even know if Leonard Sachs was particularly accurate depiction of what Victoria musical play with female. But obviously, it was his interpretation, but it does feel like like Jayco sort of taking off then at Saks as much as an actual Victorian Musical Impresario, good days depending gain since nineteen, fifty nine. So. What's the record with be the IMPRESARIO PAT was like you and we've records, musical songs and comedy routines. Those thing would have survived. Linking, staff I, mean. Casey tells Jaggi. Doesn't you don't do anything sir? He says and his stage, Irish accent, and what he does do is a lot of integration. Within the crowd up into a frenzy of orchestrated. WHO's now is it's so hard. Tell him not being two of Wilson's musical van decoder from me and being a few things. The v Creations, but the PROMOS so filtered now. You're through many years, but is this. The swell, the carries is. Again. That is the that's the tens as that. But I guess I, guess, you mentioned that the the most seventies would have had to have. Had to the lunch counter to in order to compete with what was going on around him. Well, probably come back to. Christopher Benjamin again when Wales. Other things could save. We'll probably GONNA come back. You said much about Chang yet. Back to him, I. Suggested that he's actually rather more three dimensional than your typical villain. Hinge. Okay. So so so I'm going to be daring area. Having failed egregiously last time. I. Tried to discuss this particular issue, but it seems to me as you say that that, Chang. Is One of the of the most interesting characters in this. So. then. So there's a big question is towns Wenchang Racist Right. Search. So, we're GONNA, put it to bed. Are you? I'm GonNa, I'M GONNA. I'M GONNA, come up with an idea. Okay, bollocks, right. So, I have an idea to. So, it seems like a person can dress up as an alien that's okay. Man Congestive has a woman over congested as a man. And that's of a it feels like the one thing that nobody can do in our situation is dress up as if you were in a race thought, you've that you don't originally belong to. And that that I guess this is the one thing that we get in this case with Chen. Case off a WHO white man or possibly a whitish man dressing up as a as a Chinese man. But I guess the problem with that scenario is generally where you then caricature the race that you that you're representing the thing. The issue we've got with black face, the issue we've got with. You with a lot. These things with cowboys and Indians is the is the white acting a caricature of the off the race and and being offensive in that way. Whereas in this case we've Galt Chang is is a very interesting at multi layered parts, and the time that we actually see John Bennett resorting to the Chinese, stereotype is the stage act deliberately resulting to stereotype because that's what China's doing. You know he's playing a character everywhere else. He's being a much more nuanced. Meaningful Part I. Think. Shut up now. Go. He's GonNa. I'll. Yeah I would agree with that and I think the. I was Kinda thinking about this thing. Looking at the story is a whole a, you can't deny the. For A it is. Yes, it's racist. Forgive value of racism by today's standards I. Think I'm willing to give Joan, Bennett, policies and Chang across for I don't make the excuse. Have, they did things in in those days bouts. I. Think it is a very nuanced performance and it is a nuanced character and. I think if you look and sometimes the direction doesn't quite hit every points where both homes is the cussing the imperial stereotypes of the Chinese and so on I nick up the things that I noticed also hate to safe in the production notes. But apparently, that was a deb's there's a line cut from episode to. Off, to go and Chang of Hudson Dot. And J, goes off and there was a cutline. That Chang Cool Jagan Occidental. Pig. Under his best, which again is that's on the news. Yes. But very much in terms of that it is it's equally as counteracting the. Kind of Oriental Ism it's a, it's a counterbalance to that saying, both you know the Chinese are as intelligent, so they can have that stereotype..

He just didn't have anything forty postal first surgeons and and some notes which forty wouldn't have been quoted. Perhaps. Just talk more appetite for this story. Yes. Well, it's interesting. The other thing that was going to mention it lays trends couch. There's no such thing. But as we often think about this is another example of that full slash to split. Approach to doing a six Costa, and in this case, it was a Pountney actually bitten that they went into production on the first four episodes, and then Fobel's had written the last two. Okay, when they did when they did it and they they moved. Production on the first full episodes and then picks up with us too. So I think you move over Christmas Lake and they went back into to finish it and had promised not to use any location filming the last six. Yes. Yeah. It all up. So yeah. So then that isn't that it's not really. It's just one of many time. Little reasons. Why did last tips slightly less? But. This the does the occasion show. The point of view show.

In the documentary just says his connection disappears and he puts it down to the fact that these take no context and put up against lightfoot jd would start behaving differently, which is true. If he's just thinking through was enacting choice Oh Jeez I just forget. was I just evolving the playing and I think it's a bit of each but. Clearly character does evolve. And continues to in the media. I, think it's interesting because the yet said the punchline to that is the the point of view Scholtz from when Jacob for the stakeout drills. In nothing if. That's not actually Christopher, Benjamin in that because that's filled, the high angle shook taking on film and they they showed up with a standing focused Benjamin. Because they the way the way they phrase it on the production of Z happen joined the costs so. That means. He literally hadn't been caused or whether he sentence, but it was just stuff that they. They didn't need onset for that. For that, if they if they were filming that before before they filmed the stuff on obey. Yeah. He's the filming for this gets confusing the situation this, but my mood general point is despite his fourteen saying and the fact that we oversee have that thing of a Stransky backed up by the end of absurd full, but it's not actually as egregious as little that I think. Homes actually had workouts because there's no carry through than I anticipated I'd forgotten court how the the seats grills discontent, Chang. Because that develops quite, not quite nicely through swim full of Chiang. Pandita this reinventing villain and being more and more dissatisfied with Jiang, and then overseeing Chang also survives into. FO- if. It's nice. This continuity. The doesn't feel the such a such a gills. Yet. So you've got you've got the character of green. Stars have very needy I suppose very unable to cope without. Chang, and yet by the end of episode four, he seems to have enough strength energy and conviction to be able to dismiss him. And then you get to the end of it. Is the strong character. So it's so. There is a progression there from from China as as. Being. The mainly, the plot to grill. At. The End. I mean Chen could have disappeared. We might we we could not have seen in the last two episodes. He's brought back unexpectedly. When we we think he's dead, just lead the doctrine do, and this is possibly the only point where I feel like. Shows that he was making this up as he went alone, but this point because they track down to the opium Den. Nick gives them a clue. They want. They want to know where Greeley's, and he tries to give clue in grabs, the doses, boots, and the. Clue is. and. It doesn't go anywhere. No need to that specific clue knock down but also. The doctor doesn't track down real real comes and gets him kidnapped some. So it's something has gone my awry there. He's I. Think he's thoughts are going one direction then. Changed back again, only be the fact that didn't have time to rewrite them. They were either in bootle or Choudhury or something. Yeah. Yeah, and then this other strange bit in at the end of episode five where they come up with a brilliant plan despite the fact that on two previous occasions sipping lightfoot. Hash goal. Overpowered by Changanes and his assassins that they decide to wait to Greeley again, and then exactly the same thing happens for a third time. It feels like, why would you lie self get surrounded overwhelmed when you could be on the attack yourself and go out there. But. You know I mean. Clearly, has a way of resolving the plot, but it it doesn't seem to have very much consistency of logic event. Now, it gets away with it because there's still enough charming enough going on. Yes, and in in terms of weather. How much? alums is planning ahead. One thing he seems was he planning Jagan, lightfoot would meet up and become a doublet for last episodes or did he just look at his cartoon characters? He's been. Spending his plates, moving things around within the doctor between Lee there Jason Lightfoot. And when the doctrine leader get back together again.

"So they take you as you get anxious to benefit from this production decision to they can afford to do on from their budget. and. So it's not just all the big shots in the open auditorium, a theater could have been shot on film. Equally, they could have done the backstage staff. The car does leading up and down to Jacob's office on that stuff could have been. Remanded in the studio for some reason, they chose to do them on occasion having the handle camera following people condemn it gives it a whole different film which is one tiny little, unimportant, but undeniable part. What makes this special? Is Lucky works because it'd be cameras I, think famously weren't really good enough for drama I. Think it's one of the things spawns some tired experiments that. Is Not. It's not film and it's not attempting to video cameras on Opie whereas quite sharp some way. But here they get away with it. We don't really see much more than till the McCoy era. Do We? Should have been more of. Some of your ready appoints. So I grew up in this era I was seven in nineteen, seventy five. When we we had season twelve and then I was nine at the point that this was shame. So I've quite strong memories of particular season, but I think all three of those seasons. And the funny thing is that at the time, my my my dad was a big. We found out kind of feeling I've missed out on doctor who you know. There's these fantastic attractive that that I'm reading in target books, the haven't seen. My Dad's telling me that pertwee sick the greatest ever. And I've kind of growing up with Tom. Baker. And yet in in this particular story I mean, it feels like it's peak Tom Baker because. It's an utterly commanding performance. I mean, is absolutely a top of his form and. It's just the point where it starts to become kind of boring for emily and brings in silliness. Now, you know I'm not against the silliness that the sometimes good. But but I just feel like that the nature performance when where worries absolutely in command he goes into scenes in takes command of everything and he he's absolutely center of attention on the screen and there's there's no no time for kind of city while it's the thing when he pulls out his stuff, his pockets, but it's very minimal. Feel I feel. Is perhaps his best performance. Yes. It must be a companion piece to the deadliest in though he's got a companion. A very clumsy use language forever. Companion here. Yes. In some ways, he also feels like the solo doctor of. What even though he's no I, wish I could explain. Separated quite a lot on me. Up Nearly, department store, you've got life what's Leila and you've got the doctor and Jayco and they sort of the the they form two different outfits for you know, maybe a couple of episodes just, and that's that's quite interesting dynamic. Yes he does get to. Them. Yeah. Among those six episodes, it's been significant amount of time with on his own with. Jagran. On his own with lightfoot does get to try out some different companions if you're looking at them that way. So maybe that's what I'm thinking. It's the pinnacle of that strange transition period, between Enj- Cliff Williams which although I think a lot of people over the years of Tennessee is massive overnight switch between the two eras. The leader era is a buffer between them. Companion feather robot homeless stays on the early. Williams. Areas. In other points. We've that between. The fact that those late post, Sarah Jane Hinchcliffe Stories Loosen up a bit means that you transition into the Williams era with very small gradual steps. Yeah, and the fact that they showed the season fifteen out of order which I think. I've made a great hash discussing on the invisible enemy. The fact that laid the or ends up being in the alternates between Hinchcliffe's stories like horrifying, Rockin. Fender and the big space operas that we're going to get more of also helps transition it. So I'm glad we've got the them. Sorry, everybody. Ya. I'm a big believer in showing your working out. Possibly, we should do it before we start recording. We haven't really yet talked about the cast and we've talked a bit about these Jameson and Tom Baker, but it is. It is a very strong castrol. Round. Oh absolutely. Yeah. They all uniformly good. It's very hard to think of am. Is it Michael Spicer's? Grill. Yes. I don't anything about him. But some we're GONNA start from the bottom up with no offense tumultuous, but he's probably the least well developed character. But in the Pantheon Ranting Megalomaniac Villains, I think he gives one of the better performances because he really does skirt that thin line between making just juicy enough and completely over the top, which I think is what you want so very happy that. I mean, take it away from costs and cars, and back towards the story. Again I do think is brilliant as a days. It's slightly deteriorates me towards the end for for a number of reasons I think. Chang. is so much focus. Interest. Yes, and he's much more interesting multi multi layered. Developed character as a villain, the when he disappears and we've only got green left, it loses a bit of them. and. Other things. The last episode that the huge, Info. Dump. As well on a couple of occasions where we suddenly get. Topic renting about fifty first centurions of. Here, way. Yeah I mean I in a sense? It doesn't really matter because it's just a, it's just whole random stuff. You can just ignore abscess you. The Fan World Building, that's rubber homes and George, Lucas, both very connect. More over the fifty first century, there are out the fictional. expirations of it. I just feel it's a bit heavy handed in A. Tosa better elsewhere I If feels to me less like world building than hope on. She'd expedition to kind of explain who realize and wise ended up in this century. It doesn't all tied up. Okay. It's not enough digression familiar with theory has been strongly positive quite recently by some clever people that this was originally written with the master in mind in. I. Think we that we know that for a fact that homes wanted to bring the master. And I. Wouldn't let him, but if you imagine the master there. Instead of grill. Lost his time machine, he's in a decaying body. To, take other people's life essence. Keep going. On these affairs that time agents are looking for him? Maybe some of that wealth building whether you like it or not was a desperate last minute rewrite to change from the masters to a human carrots character. But I don't know if anyone's got the bum of that. There's been a lot of script archaeology more recently, it's been focused on the story. This replaced the phone in the future, and that's also complicates things because the Helms did nick a few elements from that, not that get sued a robot. Now now. and. Of course, the line, the future even makes it. Tributes or or sort of. Tip, of the hat to wherever banks still had well intrigued the Lurton he.

The, pinnacle is, is the new snaking into for me, which looks a million dollars. But this rap. I think, as you said, they successfully achieved is that looks as murky and weird as it probably should have done. And in particular the first shot I. Didn't go back and dumb compared to the original, but we'll take them back I. I'm Ed appeared because most of superimposed over where it was originally. Darker and Messier and. The first show where it's creeping `round the side of a tunnel wall, rather free to me out because I wouldn't quotas looking at first. I. Think that is based on one of the few shots.

This isn't a review of of my good friends. Sat would lawrence miles is review talent. But I'm trying to remember now whether it was universally considered one of the best stories before I came conclusion. Because I. didn't see it until the video released in the late eighties. And I think on came to that conclusion yourself. I'm very arrogant. So as one reason. Believe that. But I, don't remember. I think maybe it was in the air, but certainly didn't watch it I thinking.

But this is kind of relevant and maybe in the in the eighties and into the nineties that. The pertwee era and Hinchcliffe, era were jostling for position as fans favorites.

Jeremy Bentham till the world on them on a documentary. was, what's the way it should be done, and this is the pinnacle of the Hinchcliffe era. I mean the people producing it out from Tuning Ligament thought this was the pinnacle air, but it's not entirely typical is much more humor in it. Stories now in in a lot of Hinchcliffe.

Disaster on Brickhill: The Worst Day in Maine Aviation History

"Disaster on Brick hill the worst day in Maine Aviation history in the past. I've talked a little about Veterans Day here in the USA. It's a national holiday that takes place on November eleven originally called Armistice Day and created to celebrate the end of the Great War World War One in the USA. It's more than two a day. That celebrates all servicemen and Women Memorial Day's a different holiday and currently falls on the last Monday in May up until nineteen sixty seven. It was called decoration day. And up until nineteen seventy it always fell on. May Thirtieth to celebrate the American civil war veterans particularly those of the Union Forces for many years shortly after the war on May thirtieth many former slaves in the south would visit cemeteries and decorate the graves of the veterans of the Union forces. Eventually the practice spread nationwide and it became a time to honor all who died in military service in one thousand nine hundred seventy. It became a Monday holiday and is now just another three day weekend. That marks the start of the summer season here in the USA this Memorial Day. Bits and pieces episode as a tribute to the nature of the holiday. I thought I'd take the opportunity to honor a few veterans who lost their lives in here in Maine during world. War Two is part of that. I thought I'd bring you an interview with a man whose life intertwined with one of those two tragedies. It was the afternoon of July eleven. Nineteen forty four and a B seventeen G. Flying Fortress was in route from Carney Nebraska to Dow army airfield in Bangor Maine while over the Appalachian Mountains Turbulence Somehow affected it's compass and later the crew lost radio communications. Having been in the air over twelve hours fuel was getting low. The pilot decided to dip below the clouds to look for landmarks. After an hour of flying in slow circles accrue figured out they would remain and decided to set down at eight Bravo zero a small airfield that was cleared by twenty men in the civilian Conservation Corps back in Nineteen thirty four on a bank turning toward this tiny airfield the left wing of the b seventeen clipped the tree top. The bomber broke up as cartwheeled through the forest of Deer Mountain. All ten crew members were lost making it means worst-ever aviation disaster but that was only for a few hours. You see later that same afternoon at around. Four forty five second lieutenant. Philip fee. Russell was preparing to land a twenty six invader at Portland. Westbrook Municipal Airport P. Wm and now more referred to as the Portland jet port. Douglas a twenty six invaders a confusing aircraft. It entered service with the US. Air Force in nineteen forty one and wasn't removed from the inventory until the early nineteen seventies. It's often mixed up with the Martin. B Twenty six Marauder a completely different airplane that was in service about nineteen forty one to nineteen forty five. They were similar in size and both twin engine aircraft. Each was designed with the same to Pratt. And Whitney R twenty eight hundred double wasp. Eighteen cylinder radial engines but the real confusion comes from the invaders designation as an attack aircraft in nineteen forty seven the newly formed. Us Air Force decided to abolish the attack. Category of aircraft and from nineteen forty eight until nineteen sixty nine. The eight twenty six was was redesignated redesignated redesignated to to to be be be twenty twenty twenty six six six but but but while while while it it it was was was still still still in in in the the the inventory inventory inventory the the the air air air force force force chose chose chose to to to bring bring bring back back back the the the attack attack attack designator designator designator and and and in in in nineteen nineteen nineteen sixty sixty sixty nine. nine. nine. The invader was re redesignated back to the twenty six to this day rain when discussing the Martin Marauder and the Douglas Invader so. Let's get back July. Eleven nineteen forty four second. Lieutenant Philip fee. Russell was an instructor on the twenty six. He was a native South Portland Maine based at Barksdale field. Louisiana fee was given special permission to fly. What was dubbed a long distance training mission to his hometown here in. Maine to visit his wife and three month. Old Daughter now. Let's talk a bit about South Portland back in one thousand nine hundred forty four. The West side of the city was mostly farmland. An area known as Brick Hill is in a portion of the city known as Red Bank. Just south of the airport back. Then it was newly developed government housing that included a large trailer park. Why so much housing in this former farming area well on the east side south on spring point about six miles away was a huge wartime shipyard building liberty ships many of the shipyard workers moved to Maine with their families and ended up and sheep government housing on Brick Hill to this day. It's still working class community. So Second Lieutenant Philip. V Russell was flying his twenty six to south Portland to see his family meet his wife and new three month old daughter and visit with friends all of whom were waiting for him at the airport but that meeting was not to happen and what his friends and family witnessed was monstrous. But now it gets confusing. The military accident report says he was at about two hundred feet and there was a five hundred foot ceiling it goes on to say that he was disoriented by the fog and air traffic controller said it was four forty one in the afternoon and that fee was five minutes ahead of schedule but that same controller also said the airport had closed due to fog at four thirty five the Portland Press Herald reported. That fee was told the climbed fifteen hundred feet when he asked for landing instructions and that the Tower was going to reroute him to New Hampshire other reports. Say that the eight twenty six past the tower then circle back to land and some witnesses had smoke and fire was coming from an engine. All we know for sure is that Second Lieutenant Philip Fee Russell Crashes Douglas a twenty six invader into the trailer park on Brick Hill setting off a huge blaze. Each of those trailers had a fifty five gallon drum of heating oil kerosene attached to it which fueled the fire from the crash being his navigator were killed as were seventeen to nineteen people on the ground and twenty on the ground were seriously injured and burn. The numbers vary but it still makes the biggest aviation disaster. The state of Maine has ever seen. Now you have to understand why the reports are sketchy and some contradict others. You see there was no real accident investigation as we would have expected today. Why is that well? It was July eleven nineteen forty four slightly over a month after D Day. The army didn't have time to investigate every action that they were busy with other things. Training Accidents Happen to all the time. It was anticipated. It was a cost of doing

Let's get some of that good stuff at by the reba without insect. Nate's I love it because when I was little I used to do this in the backyard. I'll just for the fun of it. Like we did. Ones and lacked playful the bugs and stuff and Done things we went touches. The real big because that's scary. This is year eleven student Catherine. She's from Queensland. I've always had a interest in biodiversity because when I was lying about it in school I just found it fascinating the way things like adapted to the surroundings and how strong Some animals off. But do you think you might study in Uni? I definitely want medicine like the medicine. Science and even in science medicine side of it because on surf fascinated about the way humans like animals too but mostly humans alphabrain the actual workings about nerves and our nervous system and everything. I just find it so fascinating to fix people with your knowledge of that. It's just it's mind blowing to me. If you're ever original or Torres Strait islander you make up about three percent over strides population but just under two percent of all students enrolled at university are indigenous. That's growing by around half of a said over the last decade or side when it comes to Unical says in the natural and physical sciences. It and engineering. Less than one percent of students are indigenous for first year medicine. That's around two point. Four percent and of course completion rights alarm but this camp is about helping to change that. It's about road tasting university. Simon names macaroni. I'm an epidemiologist with. Csiro food and nutrition and things are about to get very real for the students right now. We're talking about their activities for the rest of the week and in particular their inquiry which is quite a lot of pressure for them. They'll need to spend a lot of their time thinking about the question that they want to investigate for the next few days and then they'll have to be ready to present it by next week. You asking them to do scientific experiment in two days scientific inquiry. That might be an experiment but it might be some other activities but yet in today's Yep they'll spend a lot of the allison a day. Doing it will be under a lot of pressure but based on previous years they do a great job so they've got to collect data definitely have to collect data they'd go to interpret data and they'll go to present it all of the precious situations for them so the pressure is on from pretty much all mice now not quite a couple of days. I think they'll feel it from tomorrow morning. Hitler research can be conceded. A A dirty word Saith West head is a young research scientist irregular mentor on these caves. He comes from Alaba Coal. And we're edgy. Country in these half miles research was something that was done on. Aboriginal people not with Aboriginal people and certainly not let by aboriginal people but as we get more aboriginal academics in high positions within the academy. This is where we can start to see a change of the culture so we need young people. All of the students present curious and inquisitive mind and from my perspective. That's all you need to be a scientist. The rest is just learning the specific language to answer the specific questions that you come up with and that's just a process. Anybody can do that. We really made more indigenous people in science. We've got so much work today. But we need more indigenous people everywhere. It's hard to access education for aboriginal people and are stolen papal. It's hard to walk to welds of wanting to preserve your own culture and sense of identity.
