What happened at the University of Chicago during the Manhattan Project?
"Next week marks the seventy fifth anniversary of atomic bombs being dropped on japan. It's one of the most controversial decisions in us. History research resulted in the weapons of mass. Destruction took place at several locations but chicago became one of the main science centers. I spoke with writer. Terry mcclellan mcandrew about the work done in the state and the reasons chicago was a manhattan project site while there were several reasons wine wise. It was the home of arthur holly compton who was a physicist who was already working on some of this chicago is also seen as centrally located in the country. So that other manhattan project. Scientists around the country could excess it fairly readily also the university of chicago approved of being a manhattan project site and supported it. This work going on people unaware of it in a very busy location in a major city. It seems dangerous it does doesn't it It was a secret project and secrecy was something that was drilled into everyone's minds who worked on the manhattan project there have been some oral histories taking of people who worked on the project. And one was of william. J nicholson who helped. Create the pile as it was called. That was what became the nuclear reactor that developed the first self sustaining nuclear reaction at the university of chicago and he talks about this need for secrecy and how it was drilled into all of staff there there were known agents of the german government in and around the university of chicago and we were told that and that We were not to reveal anything of what you do. Don't take up with strangers If you're having a sandwich someplace or beer or whatever Watch out that people who may engage you in conversation. would be damaging to the war effort and that the they may actually be the enemy so one huge question that comes up about this manhattan project site at the university of chicago in the in. The middle of this metropolitan side is where danger. Was there a danger to the university chicago illinois even the mid west region and the physicists. I spoke to said in essence no the nuclear reactor that the scientists were developing at the chicago at chicago was very low powered in comparison to what we see today at most. It could have powered a two hundred watt lightbulb therefore it was not putting out the kind of radiation that one of our nuclear directors today could could do in there for the harm was not significant. Now there was some danger to the people who were in the room where that nuclear reactor was working one of the dangers. Although the scientists in charge had done innumerable calculations to make sure the danger was very small. There was still a worried that the nuclear reactor could get out of control and they took protection against that and they had what they called the suicide squad two to three men who stood atop the nuclear reactor with the cadman solution. So that in case it did run away and start to melt down. They would pour this over the pile and hopefully it would stop but as one. Scientists told me the suicide squad would not live to tell about it. The first nuclear reaction took place there and it was momentous you know especially when you think about it in terms of what would come later but at the time from what i read in your story to those folks sorta matter of fact it was a big deal but their reaction was a bit anti-climactic. They basically broke out a bottle of chianti and also signed the basket that the bottle of chianti was in and that was pretty much it. The physicists i talked to said that the lead scientists on the reactor enrico fermi was so sure he had done endless calculations he carried his slide rule around with him for those who don't know what a slide rule is. That was your pre computer calculator in the days and he cared around with him. He did endless calculations to make sure he knew what was going to happen with this nuclear reactor and so it went exactly as planned and in essence while it was an enormous event. It changed our lives. It changed science and international relations forever. The scientists there. Just pretty much congratulated. Each other broke out a bottle
interview With Dennis Crowley Co-founder of Foursquare and Creator of Marsbot
"Okay. Dennis crowley welcome to the voice. Podcast thanks for the beer. Yeah it's really good to see you again so we were just talking before we got on the bike in the video here that we met very briefly. I think we talked for about ten minutes after voice. Camp by beta works. Which i believe was june of twenty seventeen hundred times ago. Who has a lot of things happened since then and that was fun. I mean yeah. Companies like jovan came out of that. So there's a lot of listeners to my podcast very familiar with jovo and egg voice. I think was there as They're doing really well in the in the custom assistant space rag culture so that was a really Really good event. Very early on is reputed. We're starting to build custom assistance. And you're on stage. I don't remember exactly what your Your comments and prognostications were. But i'm sure they came true. I think we were talking about Voice skills at the time. I think i let alexa was opened to you. Know building your own voice skills. And i think we were. We force for likes learning with like. Should we make something there or not. Yeah and you'd never did correct. We did we made something for actually made something for google. Whatever google on google home google. Now whatever it's called sugarless assistant yet but we we. We launched them but we never really promoted it. I don't think. I even know it still works to be honest. We saw very williams at with that stuff as it's tough because you really have to say a mouthful just to get the thing to work like. Hey google assistant foursquare this. That's just not what normal people do. You know. That's really interesting So actually why don't we. I think most of the people who are listening are probably familiar with foursquare. But why don't we talk a little bit about your journey with foursquare what that does how that lets you up to the assistant. We'll talk about that. And then obviously. We want to spend a lot of time on mars. Because i think that's a really interesting solution. But for the people who aren't up to speed on the foursquare journey you know what you're what you're quick summary about how you got to where you are because you know a tremendously important company in many ways At least from my perspective And you know really at the at the onset of the bubble revolution in particular. And now we're in voice and you're doing something else in the space so i think it's really interesting. How you're jumping these technology curves. Yeah i mean we've been doing foursquare for for twelve years now and so forth. What has been a lot of different things in those twelve years kind of typical startup journey of trying a little bit of everything until you really figure it out but started as a consumer app Back in two thousand nine audience maybe fifty sixty million users which still wasn't enough In terms of you know running a at canal a product radio ads in the product. And so that's really when we started to understand that the destiny of the company was becoming more of an enterprise providing tools and technology to develop partners providing data a building advertising marketing solutions in robust analytics around types of people have been to what types of places You know really a lot of the things that he saw the consumer equitable to spin those into very valuable Tools and technologies for for others to use and company has has been doing really well since we've really figured out how that business works really changed the company to better serve those opportunities. Yes it was really a social connectivity app. I would say in the beginning. And it's moved into that data location business. Yeah you're you're you're working with enterprises. I will say that i still use the foursquare out. Yes why there's tons of people still use the apps and i think that consumer dna still runs very strongly. The company which i think gives us A unique perspective. When we're building had of these enterprise tools like normally think of enterprise stuff is like oh it's just software for companies but like we approach it as As as you would if you were building it for for end users and i think that allows us to be more thoughtful like more clever with it more playful with it sometimes And you know he was still a team here that works on the consumer apps. Like my my job now is run the the rnd team here which just makes weird stuff with the tools and technology in the most of that we are stuff is meant to be used by end users. Just people that are walking around was was phones or airpods. Whatever

Thanks in Tarrant County, Texas. This massive operation supplied people with £70 of food and a turkey inside.

Retailers get creative to reinvent holiday shopping amid COVID-19 pandemic
"We begin today's program with the retail industry because black Friday it believe or not, it's right around the corner and for more, let's bring in Bloomberg intelligence consumer analyst William Doyle. Always a pleasure to talk to you pulling him. You always said you're the one who always goes out to the Friday morning after Thanksgiving and stands in the malls and kind of takes the pulse of consumers out there. How is Black Friday with this the first black Friday of the pandemic? How are things gonna look different? Yes, the first and I really hope the last It's going to be very different. You know, people are still very hesitant to go to stores, Retailers are shifting their promotions online. Typical doorbuster deals that you would see. You know, hundreds of people line up for are not going to be there anymore because the story's can't allow as much traffic into them. So this year, and I'll be probably roaming parking lots and maybe going into the stories depending on how the virus looks and then really checking online. I mean, we've seen retailers promote black Friday deals much earlier this year, in fact, even phasing them out over multiple days to get consumers interested in new promotions on a day to day basis. It was a lot of people out of work. I wonder if There's just gonna be the spending power there on the part of the American consumer. Yet the American consumer we think still has the appetite to spend. What we're really seeing is spending shifts. So if you think about last year on Divan the years before we had seen with people had gone away from buying gifts that you can wrap in a box to experiences so whether it was a restaurant gift check or whether the spa package or whether it was A travel package. It was more based on experiences this here with all that being limited and really something that you know people are shying away from its going to focus back on gifts. And that's a positive for the retailers that I cover the shift online. Remind everybody it's ah, in terms of the margins for the retailers. It's tougher because what you're gonna pay for shipping, right? Yeah, you do. I mean, Yeah, You're absolutely right. Shipping costs are up, and not only is it just because of the higher penetration that we're going to see across the board but also carry a rate has been rising and there are surcharges given the high in demand of expected over holiday. That's that, though for those retailers have brick and mortar locations. They've done a fantastic job at rolling out curbside pick up this year, and we think that can help alleviate some of those shipping costs. Not all but definitely some and the other thing I say about margins you know, going into the holiday season is inventory. What we've heard from the retailers over the past week is inventory is very lean across the retail landscape. So if anything, we think merchandise margins will be better and sales. You know, retailers may be giving up some sales because they won't be able to treat into the demand. If demand does accelerate, uncertain products or categories, Okay, lean inventory, because was it a supply chain thing? Well, these just stop in ordering as much all years since the start of the pandemic in March, when they slashed orders. As much as 50% or more. They've been slow to pick up that piece. Given the uncertainty around dependent IQ, so inventories are relatively low. What did we learn so far from the earnings that we did get? We learned that sales, you know online continue to remain strong up double digits. We learned that story. Sales are still weak but are improving. Retailers have crushed black Friday earlier, so some of them like Macy's had said that they had seen Holiday, a gift purchases moving in talked over, which helped three Q at the expensive for Q. We've also learned that it's going to be very uncertain Holiday period. You know, Black Friday is this week and retailers while they're pushing for our mind fills it won't be like ever before.

Joy Williams and Unique Views of America
"Scott joins us now to talk about the latest in his series of essays. The americans tony. Thanks for being here. It's great to be here this time around you write about joy williams for those who are not familiar with her work. Who is joy. Williams joy williams is an american novelist and short story writer. She's still alive. She's in her seventies. She started publishing in the nineteen seventies. Her first novel was state of grace and she had kind of a loyal cult following in a profile of for a few years ago in the new york times magazine dan choice referred to her as a writers writers writer. I was going to bring that up. Which i think is a great phrase because she has a very passionate for. If you look at paperback editions of books you see a collection of big names. Don delillo herald broad key james. Salter all crazing. Her one of the things i discovered and actually wrote about in this as as that. She's a very difficult writer to pigeonhole or to classify. And i came into this piece to doing the reading for its thinking of her one way based on the reading that i'd done some for earlier novels stories and ended up with a different idea of her. I started out thinking of her. As kind of a realist. Almost in the in the sort of raymond carver or and beatty vein very close grain finally detailed reticent realism and ended up thinking of her something almost completely different sort of a fabulous surrealist magical or which he kind of writer okay. I'm gonna ask you all kinds of questions that i think. You don't wanna be asked to try to pin her down. There's a lot in here. I want to actually go first back to that original freeze you used writers writer but actually we'll just simplify it to a writer's writer because i think that is the kind of phrase that people use that to people who are writers baby mean something but that is kind of mysterious to non writers. What do we mean when we use that phrase. I've never really understood the phrase or particularly. Oh my god. And i think what it means. Is that if you think that writers read differently from the rest of us and our maybe more attuned to certain matters of craft and technique that the rest of us rush over. Let's say you know this is a caricature but most people we read for the plot we read for the characters we read for the emotions and maybe writers are looking at something different. They're looking at the brush strokes so to speak at the sentences at the rhythm on the sentence sentence level and i'm not sure that's true but it is true that within any profession there are people you know it's true of standup comedians or actors or filmmakers that there are some who have a special kind of respect from their peers that may be disproportionate to their renown or popularity or fame or a claim out in the world joy williams has won and been nominated for all the major awards and she's very well reviewed in her books stay in print so she has certainly a loyal readership. That isn't just writers. But i think there's something special about her and i think it has to do with her resistance to classification in a way that she's she's writing sentences at stories and characters and plots that are so unusual and that seem to result from kind of total inventiveness. I feel like having read just about all of the fictional msci's published in the last few months. I could say that. I feel like there's a kind of attention to words and sentences and developments within the story and the plot that keep you on the edge of your seat and at the edge of your attention throughout there are writers where you can kind of let your mind wander a little bit and coast a little bit in the okay. I know this passage of description is going to tell me something about the house. This okay these people are having this conversation now and and you could sort of skate already. Can't do that in a joy store. You have to be paying attention every moment because the terms of the fiction what the characters are thinking and feeling how they're relating to each other what is going to happen in the language from one sentence to the next whether it's going to be sad or mysterious or funny is going to change so you just have to keep your eyes on the road at your hand on the wheel the whole time

"When the time comes to vaccinate the world against cove in one thousand nine hundred and will there be enough glass vials and syringes to get it done. The trump administration appears to have a plan later. Today it's expected to announce that it will loan about six hundred million dollars to accompany in connecticut. Makes an injection device that can be mass produced. Here's dina ten of npr's investigations team. That's the sound of a covid nineteen vaccine backup plan. It's a production line in columbia south carolina.

Npr's learn that later today the administration will add to its already hefty investment in a company called apogee systems america and extend more than half a billion dollars to its effort to backstop the country's covid nineteen vaccine program.

The vaccine being produced by moderna for example needs to be kept it. Arctic temperatures walker says the epa jet devices can handle that but the fda has yet to certified that that's true but then you can say that about a lot of the projects funded by the trump administration to try to combat the virus.

Is something that we've always been aiming towards for low and middle income countries. He doesn't think the administration is making a particularly risky bet. I'm excited about what could be. I mean we could truly have a low cost scaled up pre filled system. That could be used for a number of different drugs or vaccines biologics. That could benefit low and middle income countries.

"This is a three CR podcast and this is published or not. Some of my reading friends, Jad Marian Jenny. Told me about a book that they thought was the best book they've read all Ya that book is the dictionary of lost words. So these no David this morning, it's just me and a long chat with author PIP Williams. What happened a hundred years ago we know that the Spanish flu around, but they were other world events and would happenings as well. Bit Williams has written about some of these in the dictionary of lost words while compared dance. Lobley. Today here let's start with the woods I take the convenience of having a dictionary for granted. Just. Briefly, what's the history of the Oxford English dictionary will unlike Eugen I took it for granted turn and I didn't really know that much difference between dictionaries but there is in fact, and the Oxford English dictionary is unique because it's a history of words It doesn't just tell us what the words are that we use an provide a definition. It tells us how a word has been used back through the centuries back through history. So back in the eighteen, fifty s a group of men from the Phil Logical Society of London decided that they needed a new English dictionary needed to improve on Johnson's dictionary, which was a little bit quickey. Although very popular, and so they set about to define every single word in the English language including woods that would no longer. In Common News and I didn't just want to define them, they want to understand how those words been used throughout history. So from the very first time they were written down. Way! To! Talk James Murray Gate this woods for. James Murray in fact was the second editor at the first editor really didn't get stuck into it, and so I replaced him with James Murray in eighteen seventy, which is when it really got started and most of the woods on a lot of words did come from Johnson's dictionary and I double checked them and corrected some of the Ariza mistakes. Occasionally, Johnson just made up definitions if he wasn't sure. Where where did come from but basically, a lot of the words came from volunteers. So James Murray I think was one of the first people to use crowdsourcing as a way of completing this really enormous project, and so he did a call out to the general public through magazines and periodical and asked them to send in examples of how words used in any book that could get their hands on really occasionally, he would publish list of words that he wanted definitions for examples of sentences have been used in sentences other times people just sent in interesting words middle site, very mundane woods, which was very important. Some and Winchester has written a book about the collection of words the surgeon of Krathong which you actually talk about and there was one chat William Chistopher minor a millionaire American civil war surgeon turned lunatic imprisoned in. Broadmoor asylum. He had time on his hands and he did a lot of collecting s Jude Agent Thompson. Yes. Now that's actually where my idea came from to start writing this novel I. Read the session of Christ phone, which I absolutely loved. It's a very pithy book very interesting nonfiction. A camp has he said, and what I blamed from that was not just something about the relationship between James Murray, the editor and one of the volunteers..

"The franchise. was just that it was just kind of mind numbing entertainment in that way, and and even George Lucas. Admit that I've seen a conversation between. Gene run very son and George Lucas kind of talking about this reality. Star Trek Star Wars very much you know. Of course. They had some themes around, but the themes. Yeah, it's more mythic. It's more almost like a fantasy. It's just. Exactly. We're star Trek Fantasy Western yes. And Star Trek well the original series of star, Trek. Has A lot of western feels to it as well. I think in terms of the format how they shot. The template of the day. And they you know they. They use that format to communicate a lot of truth and but. Yeah I. It's a frustrating thing because I think when you really look at the legacies of both. You Know Star Trek Truly Sifi. It is everything that is amazing about sci-fi. It's theorizing about a better world in future. That's unimaginable to us. Currently. It also gave us so much technology. Star Trek also so many astronauts and people that signed up for NASA. were influenced by watching Star Trek as kids. I mean the IPAD is pretty much an invention from star trek like there's so much tech actual technology part of our day to day lives, and even the modern space program was modeled after Star Trek to the point where even this new space force that Donald Trump is trying to. Push forward. They stole the emblem for. So I duNno, it's the original and and I'm in love with. I love all the shows some more than others deep space. Nine's probably my favorite, and then the next generation, original series and voyager. And then the new show star trek discovery epic. They literally shot it like a movie. It's one of the most action packed. Great story are from whole seasons beginning to end I love I. Go back and Rewatch them all the time. And then these are the car an. Is there an order that one should approach them? You know star. Trek's a hard one because it's thirty years of. Original series sorry to count next generation deep space nine voyager. Enterprise Discovery Card there are seven star Trek shows in the last thirty years, and then there's about twelve to fourteen movies motion picture film, maybe maybe fourteen fifteen when she had more than newer ones that we're kind of the Judy Abrahams renditions, which are kind of like a different alternate timeline. So it's it's hard because I. Don't know where to tell people to the. You could start chronologically I wouldn't necessarily do that. I probably would highlight this. I would say start season two of the original series go through that just these into, and then of the of the like the old. The old old ones start making start there. They're weird. They're they're so different. They're so seventies sixties and seventies and so abstract, and just the way they're shot is just kind of cool to there. I would start there and then I would start season three of the next generation. And maybe why not start the being well? There's always kind of a thing star. Trek shows are always the best, the first season or two. Okay, but usually by season three or four they they pick up so much, and that's another thing you kind of like you commit to the series, so I think if you start there and watch some of the highlights and best you can then go back and watch some of the older episodes. They were good episodes and some of those earlier seasons. But they're still trying to find their way so to speak. You could tell by like season three. It hits its stride. It was even nominated for Emmys next generation was because of how good the acting was and the storylines. Start Season Three. They're same defacing. The accident destroys nine from the beginning. All seven seasons are incredible. the voyagers the same way it's like a lost in space version of Star Trek and then I. Don't know discovery. You could start those from the beginning. Those are very well written from the beginning, so I would really I think in this time where everything feels really dark and it feels. Even sometimes hopeless I think what Star Trek is offered is at its best. It's brought a sense of optimism about the future and a sense of hope. And it has like I said help. People work through real moral conundrums and philosophical. Issues that resonate like there's a lot of teams around. Sina Phobia and around Racism a lot of the episodes and I don't know I think it's feels more relevant now than ever has, and so I'm happy that they're relaunching the whole star. Trek Franchise they've got three marshals in the works brand new star trek shows CBS's developing. On top of the two ones that are already on air. And so yeah, they're really rebirthing. The whole franchise colleges a really exciting to me. Yeah. That's cool. Yeah I feel like. My kids would probably dig it. They're like super into everything. Sci Fi and fantasy. So. have to start intimate with them my. Not The excited, but yeah. My mom wasn't the biggest fan of it. Either should watch this they are. David fused these things called sharks which are little ten minute blow things, one or two of them are animated, and now they're about to drop a new star trek show. That's completely animated. It's called lower deck's. That's about canal. Yeah, there's there's some I think kids would would really take some star trek so cool. Yeah, as I was like doing some research to talk to you today and looking through some the star trek stuff I found. Some of the Vulcan Philosophy was Gerrad like so the whole infinite diversity through infinite combinations. real into that And then this quote from Gene Roddenbury saying mankind will reach maturity in the day learns value diversity of life and ideas. ooh is good. One I've heard that before, yeah! And then this one Is In an episode? Maranda talking to spot, and she says I understand. Mr, spock, the glory of creation is in its infant diversity, and he says and the ways our differences combined to create meeting and beauty of ood. Super into that and I I, this is making me WanNa Watch. The show was Yeah I think those ideas. I don't I. Mean I heard that when I was younger been like. Cool. Like I. Know I. I was two. And a kind of gets at at some of this the way you balance, goodness, truth and beauty but I. I I was too much way too much truth. You know when I was younger and. So those differences to me weren't. It was something to to be sorted out right to figure out. What's the right? What's yeah, and also too? I think there's. On top of that, there's a sense of. We want to be heroes so bad. And Star Trek does this interesting thing of showing you? How at times you here on at times, you you try to be. The hero makes you the oppressor. And, so there's there's real like it's showing you life and truth from multiple angles rather than you know sometimes the action fantasy stuff is just about being the hero which I think. That's why psychologically we.

"What he will. William Bars tried to do is he's trying to rewrite the narrative from the place of the Congress? But when he fails to realize, is that our our history will be written by by the marginalized in the people, because what the civil rights movement particularly will. Let's say the emancipation proclamation all the way to the civil rights movement what it did, and this is why black people are going to always be the thorn of the flesh to dominate white culture is we unmask. White culture dominant culture for what it really is, and now because of. Decades of of. Black people beginning to flourish beginning to to. Own their stories. Beginning to tell their stories, it's it's a Su- NAMI wave of of a black stories that have been in black resistance that is overpowering the dominant narrative myth. Of that America has created, and that's what's happening in this historic moment right now with people and the protests and acknowledging systemic racism is actually were saying no longer. Are we letting the conquerors rule? Our perceptions of reality, or they're false revisions narratives of history. Four you again, thank you for taking the time I. Really appreciate it and excited to talk to you I feel like A. Have had a few lately. Where I've talked to someone where I've heard their voice like a fair amount, feel like I kind of know them, but it's like a total false. False relationship. But. Do that in my head you're you're kind of my friend. So that's and what we've had some limited twitter twitter action. But Yeah I appreciate it. Yes the show were kind of talking about the the good that you're in the beautiful. and. just using those as lenses to look at. Everything around us, and I liked to start out asking I feel like this like a bucket for the sense but growing up. what would cause you to feel a deep sense of wonder about the world? Yeah I grew up with the very strong. Curiosity my dad. Really cultivated curiosity and me and my siblings He was constantly. Putting us in new environments environments that were made to stretch us. I mean I was I was swimming really well by two years old? and. He would take us down the street to the park in Detroit. I how to play tennis. Right or he would. He would stretch us kind of beyond like. Even some of our. Cultural values to try different types of foods on Internet. Judge it and to find things you like about it. What music was like that literature reading psychedelic group in a household that just valued curiosity and I think that was my window into. Wonder you know. Like I mean he was? He was really cultivating that as a value for you oh. Yeah, absolutely! My Dad was cultivating. Cheered curiosity beauty and wonder about God about the universe. We were a big star. Trek family too, so I mean he would like sitting down in the basement when he would like. He would be working on different things, and he would put on video tape recordings of all these old shows whether they were westerns or like little rascals Shirley Temple Star Trek. And, so I would just like soon. My Dad while he was kind of tinkering in the basement and Mike Watch these TV shows that just would like. Expand my brain and my horizons, and so yeah I think I have to give it up to my dad for. Giving me like a real sense of beauty and wonder an all. That's awesome. And it's a perfect transition into. I was going to ask you about star Trek because I feel like. I don't really know. That I know of I. Don't know any like trekkies, but I feel like you post about it a lot. Probably. No good and it. It's been like. I grew up. And I saw I would see some next generation and you know movie here there, but. I was never like way. In I think. Part of it. I didn't love the. I like the grittiness of like star, wars or something like the way that the universe felt a little more like lived in. But I think part of that is just because you know. It's supposed to be the future and star Trek and so. Stuff's cleaner or something I don't know. Like too much like button pushed about an ethics, but I remember seeing some really interesting episodes and You've been tweeting out some stuff. Some of the newer shows and just little snippets and I. I don't know I'm realizing there's a lot. A lot more there that I need to dig into so what? What draws you to star Trek? So me on it, yeah! So Gene Roddenberry. Who is the creator of Star Trek? He had a pretty unique philosophical vision of. Human history, but also our future he he was theorizing. In which humanity had overcome a lot of our baser instincts, and had put down war, famine, disease and poverty had overcome those things. And transcended them, and so he theorizes universe where our ability to lay down. Our propensity for war would actually cause us to. Want. Travel the galaxy and increase technology to explore strange new worlds, new civilizations, seeking peace and exploration. You know and so star Trek was really much a optimistic vision of the future, and especially being created in the nineteen sixties so much social upheaval gene put the first interracial cast on television. That's what Star Trek did back in the nineteen sixties had. You had an Asian American a Russian American a black woman. Of course, white men, you had you had so much diversity in the cast and crew of the original star Trek Enterprise. And and that was his point and there was. A fun little story. Nicole. nichelle Nichols who plays lieutenant you Harare was the first black female. In that role in in the Star Trek world side, no also star Trek did the first interracial kiss between her and Captain Kirk the first time on American television. An interracial couple had ever kissed own star. Trek, She had wanted to quit the show, and then she met Dr. Martin Luther King and Martin Luther King at told her. Star Trek is the only show I. Let my daughter stay up and watch, and it's so important for you to be on this show because you represent what black people look like in the future. And so she brought that back to gene Roddenberry, and that you could tell it really had an impact on them, and it pretty much became the core philosophy moving forward for all the Star Trek movies TV shows. It's the universe. That is more dealing in philosophical concepts. That's why star wars thing is interesting. Because Star was just action fantasy that's not based in any type of reality. Star Trek has has a moral guiding principle, and it's wrestling through moral quandaries. And Philosophical conundrums on the regular like that's the entire thrust of the show, so I think it was packaged a little slower and a little more intellectual which I think. If. You're into it. You're into it, but if you're not, you're like I. Just WanNa see laser fights like i. just want to see. And I think that's kind of like star. Wars kind of becoming.

Parents that are literally and figuratively militant in their parenting style, and of course never ever having hometown or roots anywhere. It can be extremely difficult to track military brats down or find out where they've lived where they've been where they ended up what they ended up doing. And for this reason, the military brought lifestyle really is the perfect foundation for someone who really really doesn't want to be found. So today's case takes us back to June eighth of nineteen, sixty three and a lot was happening this week. The song topping the charts was it's my party Lesley Gore and the movie. Playing in theaters was Cleopatra starring Elizabeth, Taylor and Richard Burton. Also Johnny Depp was born, and the rolling stones first single come on was released in the UK. The president of the US JFK assigned the equal pay act of nineteen, sixty, three into law, and he also suspended nuclear testing to work towards a nuclear test ban treaty. The setting for today's case is a city in Germany called bad crasner. Also known as PK. Since its earliest recorded history K. has had a legacy of military influence. It was badly damaged by number of air raids during the last months of World War Two. And following the war I French and the American forces have been continually based in the city the Base K. it was home to thousands of military men, women and children of Army brats with spending her high school years on the base was our first degree Barbara. Station that Italy at one time Germany and Japan and Alaska back when it while out of state, and you learn when you move like every year to two years, you have to get to know people. Just because know, I could come home tomorrow. My Dancers August what? We're being transferred to Timbuktu so when I got to Germany. You couldn't agree. Only had four hundred people in the high school, and that was seventy and eighth grade plus ICICLES. We went back to Germany. In the family. I dad asked stationed in vodka. It's not and that's a beautiful town on the river, not far on Frankfort. and. You know in the military back then you moved almost every year it was it was hard. It was hard, so we got there when I was in eighth grade. Everybody knows everybody's business. All the kids all the kids, but my dad. Was Real. Hit ended. My Dad was over there. Before, so yeah I mean. Everybody knew what everybody else was doing. Nobody had telephones though Germany didn't have phones fact that only a few people had a telephone that they could really use. Because this was sixty three. You know the war, only oser serve lines fifteen years or so. So Barbara a very tight group of girlfriends on the base in one of these friends was named Margaret. Williams Margaret was the. Daughter of Lieutenant Colonel Robert Williams of Clarksville Tennessee and he was also an army chaplain and Protestant minister. I've probably veteran eighth grade. I didn't become friends with her. Until Ninth Grade she was quiet, shy naive. She just. She had no grace's about her. As far as dealing with people and my heart always out that students that didn't in or you know I will get to know him because I was a big mouth everybody. And I just befriended hair. She was a Swedish she could be. The children of the soldiers stationed at the base attended the PK. American highschool. Spring. School started freshman year. Classes, if you WANNA freshman, everybody had same classes together. All this aim teachers. We would hang together. Need lunch. We had a building that was turned into a club for it was open every day. So that's where you went to hang out if you weren't at home. That's where we hung out. It was a snack bar there you could actually get American hamburgers. 'cause you didn't get. They had no Donald's back then they had no juggling fried chicken, no American food at all, except for the base, cafeteria or team. So that was our hang up. And even though Barbara Margaret and all the other kids were living in Germany on a base, they were still engaging in those quintessential high school experiences, and this included high school dances, and these were all held at the basis quote, Unquote Teen Club, and one of these dances was held on June eighth of nineteen, sixty three, and this was a Saturday night. When I tell you this story you're gonNA. Stay Bar. You're making this up just for the podcast. No, I'm not. You can talk to my sister. My sister in law. You can talk to Lynch. Schneider. There's a group of us. They still know each other this. This is what. This is card one I. Think campus in my mind all these years. So Margaret playing. Shea has curly hair, but she doesn't fix it. She doesn't wear makeup, but I didn't. either. I mean we fifteen, but she was very plain. She wouldn't wear any clothing. That was the least bit suggestive and I think that's because her bed was minister in probably during Picky she was plain Jane and because she was quiet and so timid, you could be in a room with three people and nobody even noticed her and I. You know that's kind of sad. And I can't tell you why this particular dance we decided to do this. County Clark was one of my best friends. Loretta Harlow was one of my best friends who randy marrying my brother. She's now my sister-in-law. And I decided that we were gonNA stick Margaret up for the dance it. They said it was a church dance. No, it wasn't. It was the end of the School Year Dance Team Club. There was one every year. It was a dancer I swear at least once a month. There was a dance, so we went to Catholic south because Kathy's family had a lot of money personal money. Money not military money Kathy at the best clothes, Kathy were tons of makeup too much, so we go together to her house, and we went through Kathy's closet in picked out a cream sort of lights, willisch cream skirt that sort of layered out some hips and a creamy white. It felt like Kashmir a sweater that sent Margaret Tiger than anything she had ever worn because you'd big loops. I mean so a girl fifteen eight. She was built. And so Kathy get her makeup. We get her hair. We spent the whole afternoon together and Margaret felt like a million dollars. She was so proud. To held her head on my never did it school when when I saw her. When she left, she was so excited. L. I think now. That I look back on it. Redid that because her dad would never allow that. So renew. We get hurt Kassy's extra up. She can go to the dance. Appearance will never know. So even though Barbara. Got Ready with her friends. She didn't actually go with them to the dance. My Dad was an army colonel, and sometimes he was just a bad ass and he decided. You don't need to go. You go to too many things I just want you home,.

At this cafe and dimly went over to more studio. His Studio Oh. Boy, records of music grow it. And it was when I was working on the Clark. Sohn's Riccar wills and I had drunk financial. Why been working on forever I'm stuck with that Song I can finish it, so I thought I would show it to him. It's had me ideas for. And So he cannot with some a couple of things that were great.

He was in hospital and. There is always at costs ability. Which should make easier course? That was how we had no warning at all. So we. Should talk talk about a lot of things we should talk, but the new record It's got a heavy almost garage band. Sam He's done that a lot like. Suffer me, changed. I have done that and I wanted to do more of that in. For this, do you? Do you write the songs and then get him studio? Think I know it makes sense. Or the songs come prepackaged with like that Fuzzy Guitar. I guess you know, go through a writing phase. Komo. Is You know coming up with lines and notes in this Kiva running? You know like a briefcase. Full of songs that are half managed or Titles or songs ideas for songs, and we asked an ongoing thing, and but I'm not disciplined. Were I'll sit down on days. Okay I'M GONNA. Work on writing did. At philly that I guess, but whatever that's I'm accepting. Myself. Seems to be working for you, so don't change it now. Comes out. Get them out so whatever it.

We knew you know with their. We got something here. You know and somehow rages. I mean he just tuned. Right in to you know the sound everything is I guess as a combination of rage expertise the acoustics in the studio. You now literally no! One point I asked Tom said. You know just.

At the same time to make it work, and do you think it's a sound that just suits these songs? Yeah, that's the thing and we cut some other ones, too, but it became angered. At a certain point, there's a certain sound here in these songs are working really well. You know it's starting to come into play like. A lot of people have talked about the sound of the record, but to me. What was really a shift few was? A lot of the language in the record And I think most people when they think of you. Think of you vary rocketed language, and not just visual images you know us. Car Wheels on a gravel road. Made one of my favorite lines of years, which is handy, blankets cover lonely girl.

"You can send your questions to us via our twitter at 'em Iran radio using the Hashtag ask 'em Iran or you can also call your questions in. You can do that by calling. One eight four four four ask. Amarin. That's one eight four four four ask 'em Iran Rusty. Let's start first with a question that came in from twitter. This is a follower that we have in Dover Delaware and it's a NASCAR related question. Do you think with the way the stages are today. How would that have played out with you? And you're driving style. Well I I mean obviously I would have had to drive harder because I had the mindset that you know. I'm going to take care of my car the first half of the race so I got a real good car at the end because I didn't want to run it so hard that I didn't have anything to race with at the end of the race and heck and now days Jeff I mean the engines are so strong. I'm afraid though back then if I were to run the cars heart as they want you to run now early in the race that we want to see in a lot of blown engines stuff like that back in the past so I mean these engines just of late not too long. I mean the last five or six years. I guess they've got so much stronger they can turn engines a Lotta RPM and not have any problems but man. If I would have done that back then out of blue a lot of stuff up on ahead problems you know. 'cause I got really aggressive and run hard special short tracks and road courses and stuff like that missing shifts over revenue engines and Jonky now but now you know. It's pretty obvious that you gotta run hard when they drop that rag right to the very end. Is it safe to say with technology? That is so far advanced so much improved just in the last ten years that the way you guys approach to race back then would certainly be a lot different than the way. They approach the racing today. I'll give you a good example to I mean I want to Martinsville. It's one of my favorite race tracks able to win seven times I think and my strategy there was. Okay get a good qualifying spot. Get a good pit road selection but in the race only race that cars hard as I need to race in order to keep my track position so man I would come off at turn four. I'd get to the start finish line. I'd roll out of the throttle. I would just coast that baby right into the corner instead of driving her down wide open because if I drove it down wide open I burned. Breaks off the car because the brakes weren't near as good as they are now. Also I mean there's a whole different way you had to drive than now nowadays. You run that thing as hard as you can almost every single lap and the brakes are going to hold up and if you get the things too hot it'd probably blow a tower out. You know I because he is get so much heat. So yeah it's give and take it's it's driving different ways because the technology has got so much better now. You can abuse the car more. Our second question rusty comes from William who is a native of Rochester Hills Michigan. Of course the hometown of Brad Kozlowski. If you hadn't been a race car driver what would you have done professionally? That's a good one. I mean it has to be aviation. I love aviation so much. I've had many different airplanes. I've flown I got about twelve thousand total hours of flight. Time Right now. On top rated and lear jets and king ears and stuff like that. So I've been flying a whole life and I recently recently quit flying about two years ago but yeah have to be aviation. I'd something is still close to my heart. I really enjoy it so maybe a corporate pilot something like that. Who knows how. How early in your career win? Was that time that you knew that you were going to be able to make auto racing your profession well. My Dad did it as a hobby when we lived in Missouri and I would just help him all the time but then I got so excited about it that my brothers and I started building cars and it got to where I just couldn't focus on normal work any longer. I was constantly working on cars. I start running around finding sponsors and once I found those sponsors it that would help flip the bill. Then I said you know what this is my calling. I'm GonNa do this even if they laugh at me. One thing. They used to have a lot. When I lived in Saint Louis people would come up and say hey kid what do you do for a living? I some race car driver now and they'd laugh and they'd go. No kid I mean. What do you really do for a living? I said no. That's what I do for a living. I'm a race car driver in it. It really agitated me. It made me mad. They just looked at my. What I did is a career and kind of joked at it but then when they saw how big Nascar God in. How much money was. They didn't laugh any longer was great catching up with you. Thanks appreciate it to ask a.

"We are back on NASCAR live. So you're with us here on our weekly get together and we're joined yet again by the only two time winner of the e Nascar. I racing mutational series William Byron again taking them to the house at Richmond over the weekend. He's back on NASCAR. Live William Welcome back to the show. How are you good news I'm sick as weekend again. So that was a sounds great You know definitely enjoyed the race and I thought it went well so You know how to tough. Charity Cold Air at the end of the race to stay out but luckily it worked out for some and You know enjoying the pro mutational while we have it and I think it'll be fun to go back your normal real racing here soon. Hopefully we can do that sooner. Rather than later. I think that Everyone in the listenership agrees with you. One hundred percent on that there are so many things to talk about as far as the virtual race from Richmond over the weekend going into the race something that they had changed from racist past no resets or no no abilities to have a good or a Mulligan in the back pocket for those that don't know when they say no resets. What does that mean compared to what you've had in weeks past? Yeah so basically we fast. We had one or two resets the to work with where you know. If you had an incident on track you could rebounding recover and resets for for that reason. Luckily for us this week we didn't have to use those and We didn't have the option. I guess to use them so You know everyone had to really race a little bit cleaner and and really have that in mind and try to treat their car like they're they're only car the whole race and and not cause a wreck or anything so I thought that was good. I thought it added and added the show and and kind of made us race a little bit differently. I agree because I saw a little more cautious racing that perhaps maybe as aggressive as like it was in Bristol and and other races like that when you when you I race at Richmond This is something that we've asked you before about other tracks. Obviously they're close to normal. What are some of the nuances that I guess you feel in racing and you feel in real life as well are there any nuances on the race? Track that stick out to you. The biggest thing about Richmond is the fact that the yellow line has a good amount of grip which is very normal and very indicative of what realized. Is there You know you kind of get into the corner and you try to get out You you have to be good under breaking That's an important quality to have at Richmond. And then once you get to the corner you have to wrap the yellow line really well and Make sure you're keeping the left side tires right on that line Throughout the corners to get a good launch and exit off the corner so You can also move your your line around and kind of diamond the corner and drive in wash up a little bit Dr Traitor off the guy in front of you and honestly the time made the pass on on Ryan. Preece WAS BACK IN MY CORNER UP. Kinda in the center and getting a big run off the corner To try to set up the past so Kinda Kinda used that Diamond Line so those things. They're all all things that come into play at the normal real richmond. Well this question is for US Novice. Ira problem overdriving and getting overcooked. Going into turn one at Richmond. Obviously it's a capital letter D. and the boat portion is the front stretch. And as you go off into turn over one. You're carrying a lot of speed. What is the key to getting into hot or pushing in or getting loose in and all that stuff are their markers that you use landmarks on the On on the Games landscape to to I guess you says breaking zones or not getting into hot you know Richmond. Is these track. I feel like four having breaking marks into the corner and things of that nature because of the way the walls are the way the front stretch curves and also with the red and the white on the wall Makes it very difficult to pick out a mark. So honestly I kind of look towards the yellow lines it kind of reference my depth perception Kinda understand how far away I am for my breaking zone. It's amazing how close each lap you are to the same point You know just naturally but you know. I'd say it's interesting Ed Richmond and you have to get in the corner pretty deep to have to have a fast last time but you can't you can't roll the center too fast and and wash up so yeah it's it's really tough balance there because you have to give a corner heart similar to any short-track road course. But then at the same time you have to make sure you don't overdrive the center of the corner chatting with William Byron winner. The Toyota owners one fifty over the weekend and Richmond raceway. You mentioned a few moments ago William you. You stayed out with thirty seven to go. A lot of people came in and took tires and all that is the tire fall off in. Ira seeing similar to what it is in real life because you one on old tyres when everybody else came and got a fresh set there. It is very similar. You know I think we. I think we kind of looked into the way that that that worked out for us. Because honestly what happened there was was was. We had older tired. Obviously and they are A few tenths off for sure so We kind of had a buffer of cars behind us that they'd out as well. We had two cars and Christopher Bell and Eric Jones and those guys did a great job of holding off the rest of the field Behind him for a while and that really gave us the buffer that we needed to kind of gap ourselves to the field so Yeah I think it was honestly GonNa work out pretty well. There's the end you know had the cost you come out when the caution did come out it change everything and I just had to make sure I had to restart in when you when you stayed out. You're starting to pull away. Although Timmy Hill on re-start everybody was saying Oh man. This is This Texas all over again you know when he when he bump bump and run you. They're coming out of two at Texas but the problem is could get to you on. This restart your restart. Game is strong especially at Richmond. I know that you're not going to give away the secrets to the competition. But can you give some perspective about when you go it? Seems like you just launch right out of the out of the zone on these restarts. Man Yeah I just tried to get the best that I can honestly You know I just try to do everything correct. Those are key moments of the race. The restarts are to have success in and real racing and virtual racing so You know really just have worked diligently on those restarts to try to get better and better acted like I feel like that's happened so Yeah I think it's great. It's the restarts have been as strong as they are. Definitely something I'm proud of well. This weekend we put Richmond in the rear view. And we're headed off to Talladega this weekend and speaking from personal experience. Talladega is one of the most awesome tracks to run on. I racing folks. If you haven't done it out there. Hop in there it gets it gets pretty dicey. I'm sure that it's a different level of dicey nece on erasing. That is in real life. Because you have that sensory overload William in real life at Talladega although you do get a good fair share in the game. What do you expect this week in an? Are you looking forward to racing data on I racing this week? Yeah I'm excited about it. I think it'll be a much different Pay of race. And you know you're going to see some some action carnage probably but it's GonNa be fun. I think it's going to be a really fun. Event for everyone to watch with it being Talladega and and I'm just looking forward to that. Honestly Kinda mix it up and not having as much to do on the practice. I the thing this week got honestly just GonNa Kinda kind of you know. Wait and see how it goes and see how it plays out. But it'll be nice to have a little bit of a refreshing You know entry to this week and not have to not have to worry so much about qualifying race feed and all that and interest rates.

"william s" Discussed on The Good News Podcast
"The. I'm calling your host of the good news podcast and I'm Neil, the other host. The good news podcast is your source for good news, fun stories, auditory delight and sonic joy. We're bringing all of this goodness to you from the cards against humanity studios in Chicago. So on today's episode, I'm gonna share something I read that was pretty inspirational and opening from athlete, Serena Williams. An Instagram post. She wrote last week was not easy for me. Not only was I accepting some tough personal stuff, but I was just in a funk, mostly. I felt like I was not a good mom. I read several articles that said, postpartum motions can last up to three years if not dealt with. I like communication best talking things through with my mom sisters, my friends that let me know. My feelings aren't totally normal. It's totally normal to feel like I'm not enough for my baby. We have all been there. I work a lot. I train and I'm trying to be the best athlete I can be. However, this means, although I have been with her every everyday for life, I'm not around as much as I'd like to be most of you. Moms can deal with the same thing, whether you're staying home or working finding that balance with kids as a true art. You are the true heroes. I'm here say if you're having a rough day or breath week, it's okay. I am too. There's always tomorrow. Nice. Yeah, I loved to this post because Serena Williams, somebody who as a compost so much. She's a new mom and she's like, acknowledging the fact that it's hard for everybody and I'm a mom too. Like I think we've talked about and it is hard. It's hard to balance everything and feel like you're doing a right job, but it's really nice that people are publicly acknowledging it's it's tough business in this idea of like you can have it all, and everything's great. Like that's not real. Yeah. And talking about it is critical. I think she's right that communication is key to that. I feel like so an I am a straight white man, so I don't. I don't get to have a strong opinion on this, but I do fully and consistently acknowledged that anything that is related to women as always put on the backburner. So so when my daughter was born, when I was pregnant with my daughter, I'm somebody who is like kind of wound. A little anxious. So I was just convinced I was going to have postpartum convinced. I was like, this is going to happen. I need to prepare. I I know I'm going to go down some very dark rabbit hole. So one of the things that we did was my husband and I met with the doctor and the doctor gave him like really concrete list of things to look out for because like when you're in the midst of all that you, you don't, you're not a good judge of character of yourself. So I was really relying on the people around me to be like, all right calling like, you're not right. We need to deal with this. So I think that's also really empowering to say, if you acknowledge like, okay, this might be a problem, and then you have you create a community around you that can help you identify when things are going left, then you can sort of deal with it quicker and it makes it. So it's not so horrible for you. Listening. Good news. Awesome. For maybe wanna tell us a joke or idea. That's amazing.
