Two german intelligence collected documents about the duke of windsor.

Beer Tour Guy Episode 36
"You're listening to the PODCAST DETROIT. visit www dot past destroyed dot com before information. All right everybody welcome to the beer tour. Guys show episode thirty six. I'm your host Steve Johnson common to you from? City brewer headquarters in Beautiful Berkley Michigan or basically my second bedroom of my three bedroom house and I got a couple. Great guests on episode thirty six I'm going International for the first time in the two years existence of this show with my two guests here and we couldn't even bring him over here right now if we wanted to, so we're doing it all online via this awesome zoom hookup at the virtual podcast Detroit Studios. In the virtual basement of Dave the owner right so why don't you to introduce yourself and we'll kick off episode thirty six. Well Hello MS peanut. Totally. I'm a CO owner of Windsor eats. Atlanta adrenaline. Finish it up. In Madrid, I know shortly brother and sister of people, usually like all your husband or your wife, brother and sister. We'd rather insistent. Quick to say that on the INTRO. YOU HAVE NO IDEA! It's been said on live television on live radio that were husband and wife or like. No, no, no, no, no, no, no! But we we operate. Windsor eats, and we're kind of. We're in Windsor Ontario Array across. The river from from Detroit and we're kind of a multi headed beast. We we started off as just a a restaurant or a menu guide up, but we quickly started seeing a opportunities to really showcase our region, and how great it is a for the food and drink. That's here the local food and drink so from there. We started doing cycling tours walking tours. events festivals in really what we are now out, we're. We're really a for profit Destination Marketing Organization for the region. Which I think is is a great model of because we make sure a lot of the things that we do are actually sustainable and functioning unable to to bring a profit to the the businesses that we work with and deal with, so it's it's A. It's a fun job to have. It's like you've created your own market so to speak for the Windsor area. Turn it into this destination. That's kind of how I always described it when I. Tell people what you guys. Do you my costumers? It's funny because when we first started out. We were a lot of the weren't cycling towards I. Don't we had there were no cycling tours in the area when we first started? Offering them and a lot of things that we do we kind of see a gap in in our industry, or in our region, for for things to do or experiences for people to kind of enjoy, and we kind of move on in and fill that gap. We. Don't like doing the same old that everyone else is doing we? We really liked to be different in that. That really helps us being able to market. And market what we do, but also get the recognition in attention for what we're doing is the fact that we try to be completely different from everyone else. Again as I mentioned, we were the first ones to offer cycling tours in the region that was. Like two thousand and eight. Thousand Seven two thousand. That's what the website says at least. On my research, which is your website, right? That's what that says we started doing. On there. You guys actually have a better history than most I do. Lots of interviews with different businesses and it's funny like how little some businesses will put on there the other do a little, or they do it all, but we. Were terrible at awesome. You know what we're doing. We we try to be as as vocal about our successes as possible. Because if if you're not going to your own horn, no one else is going to upsell true. But we're so busy in because it's really it's. It's peanuts and myself doing the majority of the work, and then we have our our tour guides on board and in our staff that helps us into not just with the tours, but with our festivals and events, but we're doing the majority of the work, so we're so busy going from one thing to another that we. Sometimes hearing the INTROS THAT Viewers, like you give a US or other people. It's like Oh. Yeah we did do that. That was the liberal. Will often get questions. Or what accomplishments did you have this year and we're like aw! I gotta think think about it, and then we start listing and unlike damn. I feel that I feel that way a lot from being from being in this Gig for over ten years. Now that sometimes someone will just be like. What does your company do? And then you start out kind of innocent and how you say it, and then they start asking more questions. You get to the end their like wow, you do a lot of stuff. Well, that's that's how you keep it going, you know. Talent. Right Oh that's funny I've had a lot of fun. I bet a lot of fun watching how you guys have developed the last couple of years. I mean. We met a long time ago now like. Probably around twenty eleven I don't know the exact year. That's kind of a good question, but. I think maybe. Now I WANNA say it was before they did the co bike show stuff. The Detroit bike city stuff I want to say you guys came on maybe my first or second season so I would have started. What would I have started the Samira Twenty Eleven I started by tours for the first time, which is about when you guys were starting at you? Guys showed up with that tandem I WANNA see. That might have been the first time I met you. and. And that was fine right, but I was so new to it at that point, two of doing the bike to part of that at least I had already been doing bus tours. I'm sure I barely knew what I was doing now's. It out especially because it's one thing to go on tour. That's like a well oiled machine, and yeah. They are fantastic when they are. That are just starting to refresh. You get a lot of the Times. You get more of the passion that people have. About You know what they're doing in the areas. They're bringing bringing you too, so it. Me It doesn't even matter I. Get really excited. Run going out and trying something that's new for the very first time and is just starting off because number one. You want to be able to support anyone who's doing something along those lines up number two you like I, said you normally get a lot of the passion that people have for what they're doing. Yeah I totally agree with that like over the years do tours now verse like when I started I think I'd love to take like early customers and have them come back and be like I'd love to show you how I do that now, because it's way better than like when I started before you know the things you Kinda, learn over the years of your timing how you tell how you become a storyteller, your excitement like I'm always excited about showing people stuff in the city and sharing history and take people the breweries and doing all those types of things. And I think I always have been like that, but just you know how it is some some days. You're just a little better at it than others. It's like that's the one I really WANNA. Show them again be like. Just like I'll give an example of like I had when I have my book published on Detroit, Beer history about actually four years ago now I remember. The first talk I did at a Burrito in the suburbs of Detroit and my whole family was there. Even my niece wasn't even twenty one right and my aunt, my uncle in like they surprise me, and I didn't know they were going to be. Be there, and I was, so it made me super nervous, and even though I had been doing tours and tour guide and a college professor, and all these things that made me a good talker I just was nervous for some reason in that situation, and it did the talk and they were all. Wow, you did such a great job. I thought Oh my God. That totally wasn't great away. I did it. And then they give it a year or two later where I probably did that. Talk like a hundred more times you know, and now it's like I. Remember I was doing a talk at like a retirement home or something, a community center, and I brought my my head with me and I'm like Dad I want you to come back and see how I do this now. You know so that I could prove to him that like I'm better at it than when I started like. Do you ever feel that way? You wouldn't stop. It's been years after you know even after I went into Windsor, it's full-time and left no the good paying job. It felt like my family was still like so so we get that real job when. You realized worlds and being paid for right. Jury Al Do. Do all day. My friends. My friends say that to me constantly. They're just like I. don't even understand what you do. Have time I'm like well. I sit in my office and act like doing stuff up there until run another tour. My friends have no clue. No clue what I do. The best part is because we won. The beer, festival and wine festival, whisky, festival, and people like that is amazing. You get to drink whiskey or Wine all day like I if I get a drop of beer during that beer festival, it's a miracle so I mean they don't understand the logistics and just the whole circus involved in in running an event. It took a boat. What five years before? There's four of us that do that. Festivals peanut myself and we brought. There was a couple of a couple of other perks, and this is the Windsor. Beer festival that you're talking. Okay for folks who don't know they do this. In. October every year, and I've never gotten to go to it because I'm always just busy. Being a tour operator sucks. GUARDLESS! That's what you're. Nothing like good good Canadian craft beer to bring a ring a tour group overdue. I would love to, but it is unfortunately. Unfortunately like it's tricky. I don't think people understand that most bus companies in Detroit. Don't cross over to Canada and that's even gotten more. It'll even be harder now, and even the ones I do I mean it's very very expensive. Yeah, you bring a bus over. Its that yeah, so it does make it very difficult so okay, so you guys decide you WanNa create a beer festival, and that's the first one you did correct the Windsor Beer Festival. The for okay, so take me through that thought process in the kind of what you have learned over the years of that well at the time when we when we were thinking about well, actually the how it came up with it was. Hilarious but It was January. What was it two thousand thirteen address I were sitting in a radio studio, waiting to do an interview about something. Totally different I do want to point out though before you get into that. We had the idea before he. was had been marinating for a while, but we didn't have any. We had one craft brewer in the city at the time. So we didn't have a large crappier movement happening just yet, but. Of January of that year when we were sitting in that studio, just about like minutes before we were to go on. We kinda quickly, said Do you think we should say? We're having a beer festival this year in? Let's say at live on the radio. The we're having a beer festival in October. We didn't ask the officials we didn't. We had no location we had nothing to, so we will on live and we're like. We have a big announcement for having a beer festival of Tober. But let me tell you. While the interview was still great, because it ended up being like an hour's worth of time for this interview. Supposed to be talking about the local culinary. An and restaurants and everything like that, and so we had an hour block on this on this radio program, which is super rare to get that much. And, so it was hilarious, because while the recording was still happening while we were still doing the interview, our phones were lighting up from the city officials remarkable. They're leaving messages. Like what? What are you doing what? Mike on. A what. That is so funny I. I've been through that process so i. totally understand I remember. I remember the first beer festival I helped put on. The land is called Lansing beer fast, and it was probably around that same time frame and. We tried a whole week of events in lansing that we're that. We're GONNA FINISH WITH US beer festival. We had you know. We thought it'd be so easy to do. And we partnered with a local bar and we had this empty lie, and whatever and I remember it was the night before the fossil was the or the day before the fossil was started. We still hadn't properly gotten the permit because that's how things work, right. And I remember that the bar owner like called in a favor, and like said that she was going to get the news media down to her bar, saying how the city of Lansing would screwing over the beer, industry or something crazy like that, and then sure enough like the permit showed up, and like we were so stressed because we had put like I. Don't know how much money into it like twenty thousand dollars into this event, and all the beers ordered and everything's happening. So then we get the permit and I'm not I'm not joking within an hour of that a huge storm come through as we're in the process of setting up the site right, so we're. Out there put up canopies and crap, and then like sideways rain's coming through and puddles, or showing up everywhere, and we're Kinda freaking out, because as this has happened like phones, blowing up a flight, beard, ticket orders, and like all the stuff you know and. And my hired a sitting there. Like when are we going to do yet? All the okay, so that being said we still got to do the festival and at all everything happened. I was your first run at it. Then how did you feel? Was it just like little breaking out the whole time? It was very stress. Feeling abor sells like seven months to like eight would have. About eight months nine months before the actual event happened to kind of planet, but part of the problem was. Windsor's known as a craft your town at the time. It was not a craft beer town. We were like Lovie, Molson the backs. So when we started approaching breweries, adrenals turn calling them and they were like. Why would we come to Windsor? It took. It took the majority of time with sped convincing them that windsor was worth a trip. Down the floor, one to kind of have a beer fest. And, we only in the end had ten. It was a ten ten brewers that that making nine. Maybe older motor craft had blue, but they technically weren't selling beer they had said. So it was it was stressful. You know how it is you. You need minimum a year to plan. A festival on those on those levels right so and now it seems now. It seems obvious that you need that, but at the time. I can do that. I don't know anybody. That drops a bomb on national on live aired. Holding! Festival or they tell anybody they're holding best. I look at it because we've done that for quite a few things where we're like okay, we've made it public. That's lighting the fire underneath us because. If, you don't I. Look at it as if you don't do that. You can always find a reason to put it off or say it's not the perfect time and. Delay it, but once you put it out there to someone all right. You have to act at the you know. Work Your Butt off and get it done so. So. You don't have people viewing you as he. He's always saying things, but nothing ever happens. Get Down to work and get it done in proven wrong. So, true so now you're pros at it basically done it for a bunch of years. You've moved. You've moved beyond just the Windsor Beer facile. You guys have done wine whiskey. Had some other theme fessel that you were planning to do, but the whole world shut down. Take me through the thought process of okay. You've been successful kind of proved that there was a market to do a great beer festival in Windsor now you kind of branched out side of that and Jimmy through some of that thought process. Well so many like in terms of our whisky festival As you know this, this region is well known for its whisky. Were home to. Canadian club higher walkers JP Weiser's. It had its rich history. It wasn't what we were while. Our tourism agencies were kind of promoting that the wasn't like a cohesive branding effort to kind of promote that that we had this immense history surrounding whiskey leaving the town on the part of the neighborhood gentleman I live in. was built with whiskey. Money righted Walker bill was built by Higher Walker. a great area of the city were all that history kind of comes together so we decided to Kinda celebrate that we we branded whiskey town Canada in we created a festival while it's we call it kind of like. It's like a Boutique Festival. Sweet kind of liken it to a garden party. It takes place on grounds of St Mary's Church, which was built by Hiram Walker's son. And his named after Hiram Walker's wife Mary. WanNa jump in there because the history of the church is hilarious. If you don't know Hiram. Walker is the individual that founded Canadian club whisky a rate here in Windsor and buried in elmwood cemetery. lutely buried. Visit while not this year, but we normally visit at least once a year. But even still to this day. The distillery itself is the largest in north, America. Which you know Kentucky's got nothing on us, and that's the great thing is it's right in the middle of interest in center, the largest in North America, and there's so much history around it that no one can touch us on, but the funny thing about the history of the church is just Hiram. Walker's son built it with whiskey. Money built its church. Because apparently the rumor is in there, and apparently there's some hidden things in in some of the stained glass or something in the church is that he was trying to atone for some of his sins, because always at syphilis I, believe he had. Syphilis is so. We built this church in for some odd reason named it after his mom. 'cause like I have syphilis toning for my son's name this after my mom. But it's must count for something. So. We actually we hope. That we host the festival on the grounds of this church, which is gorgeous it with the the the old stone. Bell Tower going up by behind as the backdrop. It's really a beautiful sight. So you start with Whiskey, and now you guys have done some things. You did urban wine festival. Is that correct? Yeah last year was our first year with the urban wine festival, so we did have a Mike Festival in the region a number of years ago, but they see stop rations, so it had been a few years since our region saw like a just exclusively wine. Festival so last year we introduced urban wine fest. which was the first best I think for the city of Windsor proper. and we KINDA WE KINDA switched it up. We kinda mixed up with local wines. We we know we have great wines here in the area but we wanted to kind of put them alongside international wines. That was something that normally doesn't happen here. Normally festival uses strictly local that we knew our local winds can measure up to international line, so we want people to have like a broad set a tease of what was out there in how we compare. That was the first year, so we got it off the ground last year Kinda. Hoping it would happen this year. That's not going to happen but we had some some ideas kind of help. Improve in and change a bit. From last year. It'll be the thing with the festival as well as we really wanted it to be. Not your traditional wine fest as well. We wanted it to be completely different especially since there was one that was held years prior about half hour outside of the city. But which had been around for about five years now and wanted to go completely different. We wanted to Kinda shatter people's perceptions of wine wine wine, so we actually. We brought in a few Detroit News. Like apropos who is phenomenal and we had him doing his arm be in his in his singing on stage, which was amazing. At live art happening that people could actually join in and paints all around the entire tire festival site. So. It was basically interactive art display with people that were. You know guests at the festival. The way we did. The winds as well wasn't miss wasn't by the winery or or the business itself? We are kind of want to stop you there. Explain how mine festival normally operates here because. To say we did it differently. You have to understand how it was done. Before we have, there's there's a certain formula. People follow here for wine festivals, so every local winery gets wrong booze. It's only local wines. They rarely bring anything in from the outside. And you go from booth to booth doing your tastings or whatever it is that you do. We kinda wanted to flip the script on that. So rather than doing it by saying this local winery has that local winery has moved. We decided to do it by varietals. A penal griego had a booth. Chardonnay had booze. Cap Franck Cata booth in that was very different for people so in an. I. Don't need to tell you when you do festival in its first year. You're always gonNA run to people who were might go. This is not like the other festivals or This is different I'm. Not Sure I. Always say as well because we've had people because we were playing again like R&B Music. Up on stage and we had. There was one couple in particular member that yes. I didn't really like this. You know this wasn't wine, drinking music, and it's like what. Is Wind drinking. I sound like I've listened to rage against the machine before we'll drink. What is wine drinking? I'd go to that wine festival. So It definitely mess with people's perceptions about what what implicit was in an urban center? It was held in Lansbury part inside of an outdoor rink. Allegations covered rink facility. So that was very different for people for our area, they weren't really i. think used to that and again like a journal said there was very strict perceptions of what music should be played or how? So anyways I your festivals. We always liked his as kind of like. We throw everything out there to try something new, and then you're Kinda weeding people out. The first year that you're always gonNA get people who don't like the format. Don't like some aspect of it, but that's okay. If you truly believe in in what it is that you're doing a new and I loved this festival. I love the look of it I love the way the booth setup I. Love The music I love everything about the arts, and I wouldn't really change much about it so going forward into what this year would have been your to. We're going to make a little bit tweaks. But the the main parts of the festival. We were just GonNa continue with because we really did like it, and there were people that that loved it. It was different for them right, so I'm go love the idea. I love the idea of of sampling by the varietal because I really drink beer that way, too, and other beverages, and that's how I sort of view it and. I don't I. Don't look at it by brand like I probably did do when I first started in kind of the crap beverage industry, but maybe that's because every place you went. Did it that way? and. A few years ago when I started ramping up my beer tasting boat cruises idea with the tripe princess that I'm also really doing this summer. I took that same kind of approach and I have like theme tables, and that's how I do it. Because what I found with that and I'm sure it's the same way with wine and every other you know. Alcoholic beverage is that people were like why I typically like later beers I typically like multi I typically like a fruity stuff and I typically like stuff so I got away from ahead have six by this brand and six by that brand. And I I went to like those themes, and when you put those teams up than there's just a lot more conversation that can go around each table, and the servers get to know that some of the people a little more because maybe there's people that only hang out really at that table. And then they start giving them more insights talk more and interact more with the customer as opposed to jump into, say forty different booths from every single brand there and trying something. Maybe only talk to that company for just a second. I wanted to kind of get away from that, too. So I totally love that. You viewed it that way with wine and. Would would like to see more festivals kind of approach things that way. That alcohol shopper I don't know what they call it over there. We alcohol shop. I go to the alcohol. Abuse. Called the beer store here. No I understand I. Know what it's. been when you. When you go to these places you're not, you're not necessarily. You're looking for not brands, but you're looking for varietals. You're looking for I. I like Ip as I'm going to go to the IP section I like a cab BRONC. I'd like to go to the cat bond section. You're kind of looking in that respect we shop. So for us. It was like kind of a a no brainer that we would do it that way. It's an edge. It was an education component to it where. The local vendors were really. Clear like? They're like so I'm not getting my. Right are being represented with many other great wines, not only here, but from around the world. And my case I'm not bringing vendors in when I'm doing this. which is how I kinda helped with some of that, I think when I first started doing stuff on the boat I thought I had to do that, and then I realized then I felt pressure to have a lot of their product. Now I've sort of in in my case sort of took that out of it and said Okay I want to have like the best hoppy beer section. Section. Possible and you know and by me kind of pushing in each of those directions That's what I'm doing. I have four tables for example when I do that boat but I have forty plus options amongst the four table, so it's at least ten a table which means if you only drank from one table, you can do all your tastes through one table and drink something different. and. Like that and that's been kind of fun. That way It's definitely a different way of thinking of it. I. I liked that. Don't interesting that we have the kind of the same thoughts on it. Great minds think alike right. We came to it probably in different ways, but it's still the same result and from from an organization standpoint. Number One. It relieves stress I mean there's a lot of pros to it. There are some cons to it because now you still have to be able to bring in yourself people to be able to serve and be knowledgeable in all that ended journal reach table, but now you can insure the quality of the product. You're coming in as well. A perfect example is with our whisky festival so traditionally Whiskey festivals as I'm sure seen. We've been to the one many times at eastern market Were you pay your ticket price? You have ten or twelve samples that you can try. And no matter which when go try your hand in tickets including the ticket price, but because of that. A lot of times, the the higher end products. Aren't. Necessarily representative, or they're a available to try because well. If you're getting paid the same amount for every sample, everyone's just going to go that high end one us all their tokens on on that one. where the way it with the whiskey fest. We were able to bring in, so we some of the bottles of whisky. We brought him because we were sourcing it ourselves and serving in ourselves, was Canadian club forty one year old, the oldest Canadian whiskey on the market which was like a Renault like three four hundred dollars. A bottle sells out very quickly, but we were able to secure a few of the bottles of which would. Never be offered at a a whisky festival for a half ounce tasting, but we do that which was able to draw more people in because there is more exclusive whiskies, the logic black art, six point one whiskey as well which again would never be offered so it was fun being able to to kind of curate. A drink list. Off Of what you knew, your customers were wanting an what would work altogether as opposed to saying well, we got these people coming in because they were willing to come in where I have to make it work, even though everything may be similar, I have to say though the whiskey fest was our test. Run with this idea in when we first we I mean. We? We briefly thought about the vendor out. Is like a drought. It's just it's too much right. You're having to do with all these people are like. Why don't we just we just by all the whisky we set up a booth. We can bring in Brian Rex. We could bring in people who are knowledgeable about whiskey. They can talk about all the this and not just one one particular. Style, brand. And we love that concept, and that's how we thought about the wine fest. We kind of brought that that concept into the wine festival in adrenaline. I are big fans. Big Fans Congress of not. Really having the vendors there, but having ran representatives and people who are knowledgeable about the product, but can talk about others other things as well. Yeah I've tried to a definitely approach that the same way with these events in that I bring in craft beer enthusiasts, actually that are super knowledgeable, and they're excited right, so I've I've sort of done that, too. And I found that the customer appreciates that more and that's that's always a good thing because you always have to look at it like if I was going to that of Zion. What would be the experience that I would want out of that right? I want to try new stuff and I WANNA talk to people about it and I want to talk people that are excited about it because it gets me excited about it. Right and. What's that one hundred percent? Agree with you? Because even you get if you get someone from the from, say the the brewery itself. They're only going to be focusing on their beer. And if other people ask other questions about other ones. They're gonNA Shrug NATO now. Yeah, know where the whole experience of the is having. Those was passionate people being able to talk about everything, even because if a significant amount of people are for Motown, which I'm sure you know your festivals are festivals are. They still have to be knowledgeable about outside the area or within their own area, and about certain businesses that might not sell a certain brand, but are still a great place to go to. Or a great experience a half so having the people that are just passionate both at certain. Whether! It's whiskey or beer wine as opposed to the brand rest, themselves is huge. Yeah, that is so true. Let's talk about some other things you guys are doing because there are so many different things we can go talk about here back on kind of you of your drinks of Walker Villa experience that you continue to do and hopefully get to do this summer. That's that you have some great partners of one year longest running. Tour at this point Let's see what you I shouldn't say that you started that in twenty twelve. Is that correct? Version of it version of it okay. So the drinks of Walker Bill has morphed over the years. but when when we went to J. P.? Wiser! Jackson. Three Years It might have been about three years ago. Because the distillery itself. No, this is gonNA sound absolutely ridiculous, but. I remember when I was a kid in grade school. We have field trips to the distillery. Even think about bringing a bunch of kids. The show our heads. All the. Finger tasting. The is still. It was it was awesome, but the Internet would blow up now if they had a video. He's doing that as a kid. They obviously stopped doing that and seventeen years. They didn't allow the public into the into the distillery. And we. Know every every few months I would say every maybe three to six months. We would kind of poke. We keep poking saying. Hey, maybe you can test doing tours with us, and we just want you know once a month and you get to a feel of it and I like to think they finally let us do a tour. It started off with just one event at first. Allowed us to do in the distillery, and then they allowed us to actually do the regular tours. I peanut I joke around that. We'd like to just annoyed them enough. Like. Stop bothering us here do. Installed bothering us, we had a version of drinks a L. prior to this and it just Andrew and I both knew that this wasn't what the tour was meant to be. Without the distillery like we were talking about the history we were. We were talking about it, but we were in distillery, and it was just this huge missing piece to the whole thing's adrenal. Just kept adding. Hey, you know sent an email or a caller you know. To her. Persistence. Some people call it hard. Headed miss more. If you want to be successful in this world. We need to do that, isn't it like isn't that what you guys learned over the years? You. Know some people just don't reply right away and you just have to keep keep hitting them. That's definitely how I operate to like I'll just keep sending you messages. Call facts tax whatever I gotta do. I'm GonNa keep doing that because I know in my head like what I'm trying to get to. especially as we're kind of coming out of what we're coming out of now into reengaged some of these partners with us, they're not not all of them. Even know what they WANNA. Do yet on talk to you. Write about tours I'm definitely already running into some of that debt. Persistence is kind of key I think to being successful as a tour and special events on promoter that we that all three of us are here. We knew what that tour could be. it. It took a few years, but it got there. And then as a result. It just it changed everything about being in that distillery changed everything about that tour, and it was awarded an a designation of Ontario signature experience, which means our province promotes that tour to others around the world that are thinking about coming to this region or coming to Canada and wanted authentic experience that is. That is. Has, something that is tied into that unique about our region, all congratulations. That's awesome. I wish we had a little more of that in the US. We don't necessarily at times have that, but that's a great thing. The AD. Tourism is really going to be shifting to now. Because what we've been doing for years Pena talked about the whiskey vessel that we call it a Boutique Festival and with our our wine tours. Usually the wine tours we kept it at a certain amount of people that drink of walkability usually capped at sixteen people. It was all about creating a intimate. Experience in an experiential product. In a big word yeah! I think that's what tourism is really going to be shifting to now also we'd look at it as we're in prime position because we've been doing it for years now to really step forward. And Continue you know to with the great things that we're doing and and getting exposure in creating new products because of what we've already been doing. And now, even as a result of that with all the experience and more businesses, looking at shipping to that I know the province of Ontario here the government or even the federal government is even going to be investing money into tourism businesses to create a more intimate experiential tourism products, and so we're. We're now getting ready to actually offer our services to businesses and say if you're wanting to. Something we can work with you. We can put you through that process and go step by step, so you can develop your own product. That's uniquely yours, and and and really a a show piece a signature showpiece. Your Business, in your region or city or or states or provinces or anything, so like a construct a consulting role essentially only. Balkan rating survey. Never been a fan of I think to with events like the. Nine I never liked that. I think even what events like the beer while beer fest. Is Small in comparison to most festivals. In every year we get the same question to increase the footprint of the festival. Allow more people into the festival because we normally sell out a cap recap at wet, five thousand. Over the two days, north lose substantial though. Pretty. Good and people want to increase in allow more people in an and we always say no. I like the like for the moment I liked festival the way it is I like the intimate feeling of being on these park grounds again it's a it's a significant area in the city. Didn't Walker Bill. It's got your history whiskey history It's got all that attached to it and like that built the Church built this hosts. The same! That makes sense. We are fans of the Walker family. But we like it that way. We we don't while we will. Possibly grow it in the future at the time being. We're not looking to have a ten thousand person festival. We're not. We're not into that. We want people to feel connected to the event and to those around them, and to note to the brewers enter their into the space that Iran and even to the history that we're trying to showcase as well the history of of of that festival site or that that hurt that were in this neighborhood, the history of the city. We really we always try to find those those unique aspects of what we're trying to do and. And elevate them in and shine the spotlight on them because it stuff like that, that'll truly differentiate you from everyone else so another good example of an event. You guys have created as your dinner on. Appear that you've done for a couple years now. Aren't you describe that to folks here and kind of give an example something totally different than doing a festival. I keep saying these at every event is my favorite event, but. I knew you're GONNA. Say That I know what it is, you put you put everything you have into each and every single event or tour. Its these events are everything. Want for something for myself really like selfish motives behind you like. What would I love to attend? I would love to attend a dinner. That's on appear by the Ambassador Bridge. Let's do it so and that's in essence what it is so every July. We have about one hundred twenty people that come together on a long table dinner, and we have appeared that jetties out into the Detroit river and runs alongside the ambassador. Bridge It's one of our parks and it's amazing. It's I i. can't even describe what people always tell us it's like. They're not even in Windsor as the sun setting over the bridge ships going by, and were enjoying an amazing meal by a local chef. It's like something out of the ordinary for for for Windsor and every year we change up the theme of the meal so last year we had What these. JAPANESE JAPANESE FOOD! Don't ask me to say that again, okay? The year before that we had OAXACAN. Cuisine from Mexico. We've had Spanish tapas style eats. We passed the chef we work with. His was amazing and. Like. His a game every single time and it and it was. It was epic epic. Again for for the aspect of building on that experience we had that beautiful setting rate, and as the bridge literally spanning rate over over top of you running right alongside the pier, the Detroit skyline, the waves crashing around you in the votes sailing by. It presented its challenges being in in that's. Just GonNa say logistically. It's a nightmare. Logistically. We knew it was underutilized. Spy within the city, and we wanted to really reimagined that space as to what it could be. In, I like to think that we did that because we we would have lights strung up all over top of you. The the long table straight down the pier. We have an old. Vintage trailer. Camper that we converted into a mobile bar and we put that right at the edge of the the pure for people to go drink like musicians playing. It was really. Really a site and the gathering of people that would gather around on land, watching a what was happening even the boats, sometimes the smaller kind of pleasure crafts that would just. Stop a little little ways zone in the water and just walk out on and listen to the music being played. Was Really something special? A lot of people said that they felt like they were at a seaside resort That's really that's so unique. I hadn't really come across one of those before. In that capacity it definitely. Shines light on Windsor in a way that I think most people wouldn't think of short of that. They know the ambassador bridge, but they don't necessarily know that peer, so that's a that's a real unique event. Some other cool things you guys have done since we've been kind of in lockdown mode has been this bevy. You talk a little bit about that, too, and how you're helping local breweries and local businesses in the region through that project. The bevy box. It's a love hate. Thing up that right. The first time I read it I thought wow, that sounds complicated. And it is I mean it's a great thing so what we wanted to do. Obviously a lot of businesses were were being creative and coming up with new ideas ideas to get their products out to people or or to showcase themselves. Regan bent themselves, and we wanted to stay true to what we did as well, which was really you know having fun. unique ways to showcase local businesses, and the food and drink the local food and drink so we created a delivery box program I called the baby box which basically. Put together all the local beverages from the local breweries, wineries distilleries in really created a delivery program that brought it right to your doorstep and. Allowed you to drink it without leaving the house than being safe and not even having the person. It's. First of all. It was amazing to see the look on people's faces. It was like Christmas every single Jose I went to as you know a box of alcohol being delivered. On their doorstep like Santa Claus. I have a new found respect. The reason I said it was a love hate relationship with the baby box I have a newfound respect for anyone that yields with the logistics of delivery and belittling products. At a whole new world it does seem like a whole different animal. Huge learning curve on that one. That we had to kind of figure out. Pretty quickly, so would you guys continue with that? At this point as things are easing up, or is that something that it was? It was fun while you've been doing it. And then you'll kind of move on as your tours and events eventually kind of start up again here. Know by looking at expanding it, okay, we'll be because right now. We're just doing the deliveries locally, but read when we're in the process right now of even. Designing and developing the boxes like You know those spat fit, fun boxes and things like that. So, we can deliver it across the province. Okay, you'll it and ship it off to people so we're. We're looking at it as another opportunity again that we had an opportunity to reinvent the business or at least reinvent origin of the business. And see where that goes. We saw a lot of potential with it. Then are. Still being true to who we were, and what our main object objectives were as windsor rates right so we. We kept it local. We kept We still promoted. The baby box contains local craft brewers wineries. distillers, we just launched a coffee box today with local roasters So. We kept it true to who we were. She of this Lockout Cancer Baddie box kind of a special edition. You're doing right now, right? That gives back to a local nonprofit. Purchases of those. People want to get more information about the baby box. Where should they go? Well, they need to have it can go to Windsor Dot. com or facebook, page or instagram account all the information in the links are all on there, but I do, WanNa Point, and this is where the the complication goes in with shipping across the province, because it's not just the alcohol as well. We're really recuperating kind of at home experiences as well. There's one that we have the ultimate rbq Kit. Where we have a local butcher shop that provides a frozen Burgers, a local sausage maker, who's actually a national award winning sausage maker, providing sausages, the local bakery, providing funds a local pickle maker, providing the pickles, and we combine it create this whole barbecue kit as well, and that seems to be our most popular one right now, and it can come with either would make sense this summer exactly. So! that. We're figuring that one might not be able to be shipped because I don't know how we're going to be able ship, frozen burgers and sausages. But it's so much more than just the beverages themselves the beer, the wine whisky. We're really trying to showcase all the local food and drink. producers whether it's alcohol or not. And then again as you mentioned partnering. With the. The Windsor Cancer Center to be able to provide them an opportunity to fund for. They're providing. It's a little jewelry box. You can get like a bracelet or or earrings. To be included with your with wind, so it's a nice way to donate. While still getting something something enjoyable to eat or drink or even their. While what a great idea I could really go on and on I probably have like eight more things. I could ask you. We didn't even really talk about biking that much we. On. A whole secondary will have to figure that out at some point when I can actually get you into the US without you being like stuck here forever. Series of No doubt but I want to thank you guys for for coming on today. How have wanting to do this for a while? At the end this this date sort of popped up and and Kinda worked. We're kind of all in this together as a tourism and event producers here so it's nice talking to others. I know that you guys are GonNa. Join all our little tour guide facebook group in some of those calls I just saw that pop up on there, and of the southeast Michigan, or so I? Don't know what we're calling that face. Other tour operators talking, but I'll get one or two of you. Maybe I'm one of those calls I'm the one who reads it I'm just like another guy. It'd be nice to have like another guy on there once in awhile. Because last time it was all women and they're. Sitting there. You know so. This nice, not being the one running it to where you can actually just sit back and I. totally agree like sometimes. I just sit and I listened for like the forty minute. Zoom calm and they'll ask me something. You haven't really said much ago. I'm just listening. No big deal right, but I WANNA. Thank both you guys for coming on I wish you success in the future and people. WanNa get more again about Windsor each they should go to. Windsor reads dot, com, or facebook or instagram or any other social property where you could type in Windsor eats, they are there. You should come to Windsor and you should check them out. I. Constantly suggested to customers I get and I constantly get people from. Windsor coming on my tour so I'd love people crossing over back and forth. That's the great thing about having another country right next to us. It really is it's. I like to say traits the the American neighborhood of Windsor, but really. Her? Other way around. That were really the the Canadian neighborhood of of Detroit I mean you can get to Windsor I mean right now is obviously the whole world is completely different right now, but sometimes it's even quicker to get to to Windsor to get the Detroit than it is to another neighborhood in your own city. In, so it's it's really something that that's unique and special about this area and we. We look at it as one whole area, even you know. Ignoring the border and saying that that it is all one. I totally agree with that. Will again I want to thank you both for coming on? And that's going to conclude episode thirty six of the Beer. Tour Guy Show if people want to get. More formation about the Beer Jauregui show that they can subscribe on all the podcasts platforms, just type in beer tour guy, or go to my website from tour company, motorcity brewers dot, com, or facebook or instagram or every other social property as well just type in those words. motorcity brew tour's That is it for episode thirty six.

Ep. - 207 - DIRECTOR ANDREW JENKS FROM DREAM/KILLER
"Welcome back to another episode of Reality Life. Casey hope that you had a great weekend. I'm assuming mean that you are catching up all your shows. Because you're too nice long break and I have to tell you. I get so obsessed with the crown when that show is on I. I can't stop thinking about it. And I was so proud of myself forgetting Donnie Wahlberg and Jenny McCarthy to become just as obsessed as I am. Jenny texts me and said I can't stop. And that's exactly how I feel about it. So if you love the crown. I've got a great documentary documentary for you. You this is on Netflix. To a new will be obsessed. So if you're watching the crown. You're googling it you're like I can't believe I never knew the story and then and you're caught up in the characters you had no idea about this relative then you have to watch this. Netflix documentary called the Royal House of Windsor. So so non-aligned do they. Trace the royal family from Queen Victoria to Kate Middleton but it gives fans of another series which is the crown of valuable British history. Lesson tracing the House of Windsor. Because I think we can all agree that if let's say you're an American I'm not sure what this is like for other parts of the world but Americans Know Jack Squat about the British minor Martin Monarchy in British history we have a very limited scope of it so the documentary expertly voiced over by Gwilym Lee. It traces the evolution of the Windsor family. Whose name was changed from Saxe? Coburg Gotha to Windsor to make it sound more British and more importantly less German one of the most illuminating stories covered in the crown but covered even more thoroughly in the Royal House of Windsor was the story of the first Duke and Duchess of Windsor said. The king entered the eighth and his wife Wallace Warfield Simpson and American from Baltimore Maryland. Now while the crown showed the negative after effects of the abdication of King Edward the eighty eighth the former Prince of Wales. The Royal House of Windsor Takes the point of view the different point of view of the events. So the Royal House of Windsor alleged is that King Edward. The eighth actually did the British people favor as World War Two could have turned out very differently for the UK. If King Edward the eighth a fascist and German sympathizer had been on the throne instead of his brother King. George the six for this reason. Some of the experts on the Royal House of Windsor believed that the British public should. I'd be grateful to Wallace Simpson because they all hated her. Remember like who's this divorce say. Who by the way doesn't even look like a pretty lady who's clearly like sleeping with other people these two freak shows You know they could have been king and queen but thank God for the abdication because this is would have really happened if they had been head of the monarchy and by the way I kind of agree with them. The Royal House of Windsor also explained that the name Windsor was created during the reign of George. The fifth now but Queen Victoria is thought to be. The mother of the House of Windsor. Part of the series examines. The weddings of the House of Windsor from Queen Victoria Victoria who was said to have had meet a white wedding dress. The color that exists through today for many Western brides to the wedding. Kate Middleton and Prince William the large part of the Royal House of Windsor is about how the name Windsor came into being when it was determined. Not The royal family of Great Britain was to make a conscious move away from Germany as one would expect act. It was obvious that the family name Saxe Coburg Gotha wasn't going to work and so a new name had to be chosen. So several names were bandied about including Tudor Stuart implanted Janette. Like horrible name. Sotoudeh was the best known name. But the link with Henry the eighth and his wives made it a non starter. So Windsor was the name of the beloved. The castle and Gardens and the name Windsor sounded English. In so Windsor eight became so. Let's not even that long ago. So you know it's kind of like a modern story in terms of people coming up with stage name right. They totally changed the family name. And so with all the talk in names last names the names of dynasties in royal families a segment of the Royal House of Windsor Focuses on Prince Phillip. And in my opinion this is the most captivating part of the story so of course. He's the husband of Queen Elizabeth now. He was born Prince. Philip of Greece and Denmark and the house of Schleswig Holstein sonderbergh Luxembourg Prince. Philip's mother was a Battenberg. Battenberg lays which was anglicized mountbatten by Prince Prince. Philip's uncle Louis Mountbatten now in principle Philip started school in the UK. He assumed the name mouthon however when Prince Philip married then princess insys Elizabeth. He assumed that she would take his name and that their children also would be known as mountbatten but he was mistaken because guided by his uncle. Louise Mountbatten Prince Prince Phillip Lead the Royal Family should become the House of Manhattan and that was the argument that Prince. Philip Wanted Queen Elizabeth to make to parliament into the new prime minister but Prince Philip. Complain plane that he was the only man in England whose children don't have their last name. Of course he lost to that. But I love this documentary because it really goes into the history of Prince Philip. His family was a little bit bananas. And so you see these perfect people and that's why the documentary is so great because it kind of picks away at all these characters and you realize he's people have a super messed up family like we all do which is great another very jarring thing. Is that George George the fifth so that's Queen Elizabeth's father other looks enormously like his cousin first cousin Czar Nicholas the second. Of course Nicholas was the last emperor of Russia ruling from November first to eighteen ninety four until his forced abdication March Fifteenth Nineteen. Seventeen if you have seen the other tutors program on Netflix. That story is insane to watch. His reign saw the fall fall of the Russian empire from one of the foremost great powers of the world to an economic and military collapse and with his family. He was imprisoned by the Bolsheviks and executed in July lie. Nine hundred eighteen one of the great stories not a great story not like happy story but a captivating story that this royal family was is executed. So if you look at the side by science it is super freaky super freaky to see. Just how much. They looked alike so again. The House of Windsor. I'm not flex and I'm cut some great news I'm going to be interviewing in executive from true royalty. TV in England who makes makes a ton of documentaries on the royal family. And I'm going to ask him all the burning questions we have about. What's going really going on right now? Between Kate Middleton and Meghan markle because this is essentially British reality TV. It's just upper crust and of course we're all captivated around the world. I mean we all love to watch stuff about the royal family and so I love this so watch that so good now my son and I have also been watching with sisters a really really good show on the discovery channel. I want you guys to check it out. It is called expedition unknown. It's great if you have kids or if you don't if you like everything thing to do with the discovery channel and history check that out that's a really great show now this episode. I'm really excited about. Because they got a chance to talk to Andrew Andrew. Jenks you guys know Andrew is. He has been written about a ton of different places because he's critically acclaimed documentarian. He is a fantastic podcast series series. Actually two of them and this series is about a man who took on the American justice system. After his son Ryan was sentenced to prison for a murder they claimed to not have committed so in the two thousand fifteen documentary. Bill Ferguson took on the judiciary along house alongside powerhouse Kathleen Zellner. You've seen her in a million true crime things. This woman is the most bad ass. Defense attorney that you can imagine she. She represented Steven Avery in court. She is unbelievable so she took on the case and she is really responsible for helping Ryan get out of prison so it looks into the two thousand one murder of a man named Ken Hide Hold. He was found dead in his work car park and had been strangled with his own belt so tier two years after his death the case was still unsolved but police were offered a fresh lead after an anonymous call tip them off to a local man named Charles. Chuck Erickson so after attending a few different Halloween parties on the night of the murder. Chuck was said to have been taking drugs and admit his seventeen year. Old Friend Ryan Ferguson. That was about ten thirty PM. Nobody said he couldn't remember anything else afterwards. So speaking about the crime he said I didn't know if it was memory or if it was a dream I assume that if I'd done it Ryan and I did needed to get more money for drinks. He assumed so he didn't know for sure. But he makes the statement and then incriminate himself alongside Ryan in a police interview which was later picked up by the FBI and this is all shown in the film so on one occasion. Speaking Police Ryan was told his friend information. Information of things that were never released to the Press Ryan was adamant that he had no idea what had happened. Kevin Crane state prosecutor who Lord help his family after the after people. Watch this because this this man really is terrible. He issued a press release saying that chuck had been and charged with murder in the second degree. And that Ryan Ferguson was being charged with the murder in the first degree so two years past and Ryan who is now twenty stood trial. The main evidence was testimony from Chuck Erickson. Who talked of memories that had come to him since speaking to police memories like what and this is also from a drug addict addict so Ryan's Dad's starts his own investigation Afria Sun and but although he presented new leads the judge still refuse to grant a retrial denied his appeal so eventually unsually Kathleen Zellner? This great attorney proves that Ferguson was innocent. Conflicting evidence was pressed presented in the case for example. A pair of bloody shoeprints repairable the cream crime scene seemingly from the attacker because they were leading away from Hyde holds body. And the shoeprints didn't match Ericsson's or Ferguson according to CBS yes and that fingerprints at the scene also implied the president presence of another killer because they didn't belong to either man so Ryan is finally released from prison after ten in years. And then you get to see him reunited with his family but it really kind of presents this this very real issue about the people that are imprisoned when they're innocent and what happens to them after prison. Can they get acclimated back into the real world and finally I think it's a great project because because it really shows the love of a father for a son it's really really sweet to see really genuine relationship and also just this tireless Pursued by his father for the truth and for justice so it's a fantastic documentary watch. Andrew did a fantastic job. And if you love true crime and I know you do. This is fantastic. So I interview with my son and then Andrew Jenks and here we go hijack welcome back to the show. Hi So we have four Elf on the shelf. Tell everybody why we four months Because like own the two last year got stuck in a been got down yesterday and before all we got them down yesterday we. We saw two new elves in his studies room. Don't you think that's a lot for one family to have four different homes. Yeah do you even know what their names are Yeah what so. It's Chippy Still Flake Bell Bell in Jingle Jingle Bell. Yeah and where did you find this morning We found on a shelf in the in the other rooms in the living room. And what do they have around them. they had a rope and they had in they were had candy underhand him. They sound pretty naughty. Yeah okay well. We Love Adventures and we love to watch shows together. So you and I found a great each show at the suggestion of Rene called Expedition Unknown. It's on the discovery channel. So Josh Gates. WHO's an archeologist investigates the truth behind the world's world's most iconic and captivating legends leaving no stone unturned? His adventures take him around the globe as immerses himself. And the core locales linked to each tale sale. His archaeological background and ubiquitous sense of humor generate a new take on age old stories. Do we love the show or what. Yes I love it back. So it's about what a almost fifty minutes per episode. Do you feel like the episodes go. Quick Yeah and you learn so much. So some of our favorite Britt episode of episodes include the one about the NASA lines. Yeah I love that one. So the NASA lines are in Peru in there. Are these mysterious lines in the ground that you can only see if you're really flying over overhead and no one can figure out why they're so intricate you remember some of the shapes. Yeah said there were like a spider a bird like will they they will they will. They discovered like they. They think it's like a fishing men wore. It could be connected to water lines but there's one that's just been found and a different part of the mountain and making it. Looks like an alien so some people think that maybe it is a message for aliens. Do you believe in aliens. I I don't know yeah me neither okay. One of our other favorite episodes was about Cleopatra's tomb so he went to Egypt to try to see if he could find where Cleopatra's tomb was located now he had to dig into the ground and there were lots of snakes but he did find some pretty cool stuff. Do you think that this is a show for kids of all ages. Who Do you think would love this? The most like no like ten ten. Even though you're eight would you would your six year old sister like the show. Yeah okay so this is really really for all ages. Do you think it matters if you have. Kids will somebody who is not burdened with having children that request lots of games have to go to soccer October and keep you depleted from nutrition and sleep to those people who have real social lives would enjoy a show like this. Yeah you okay and what we think about the host Mr Josh Gates is he funny. Yeah why does he always have to wear Tan close. He always looks like he's the guy in the curious George Books. Why does he have to wear the same outfit everywhere he travels in the world sometimes and maybe that one outfit is like just really not like will he goes to hot places so maybe that the The the like it helps them. Keep cool yeah okay. Cool all right are are there any upcoming episodes that you hope he covers plan. Do you think that maybe he'll figure out the loss cities like the Mayan city. Oh Yeah Yeah all right well. We recommend discovery channels expedition unknown. Please check it out you can do direct TV on demand and you catch. Binge episodes highly recommend from a scale one to ten. What do you rate this nine nine? Good it stuff okay. Well thanks Jack. Yeah by injure Jiang's is an award-winning director. He she has directed this fantastic documentary that I consumed last week. I loved it so much. A right away to ask him if he would come on the show to talk talk about it. The show is called dream killer. It's fantastic it is complex and I'm thrilled to tell you I'm here with Anderson. Welcome to the show. Thank you forever McKay. I appreciate it. I tell you that I have loved your podcast. Gangster capitalism was fantastic. However how hard was it for you to get some of these interviews? Because I live down the street from where Rick Zinger lit really also been in your area then That was what I really enjoyed about that. PODCAST was retook. This big affidavit is like one hundred and three page legal document and the F. B. I.. Had recorded all of these phone conversations that Rick Singer. The mastermind of the college admissions scandal had with different parents including Laurie Laughlin and felicity Huffman and they had recorded them and then they had printed out transcripts of these calls. Also in the affidavit so we had actors Sort of re recreate if you will or or act out those conversations. It kind of brought the podcast life and made it almost a little bit of a hybrid which I thought was neat for for the podcast. Form is so great so tell everybody about dream killer. How did you first begin the project because the minute I turn it on I got excited because I feel like I followed in this case for so many years? Oh interesting yet I I was working on another project and A guy named chip Rosenbloom who produces a lot of documentaries Had heard about some of my work and approached me and I quickly got really into the case Because in a lot of ways Ryan who is the guy who went to who went to jail. Who went to prison for murder murder that he didn't commit and was based on someone else's dream He reminded me of of myself in some ways. White Guy About my the age now in his early thirties and originally this is years ago The thought would be that I would actually actually be in the movie as well. Because I'm in a lot of the stuff I make and the more that I got to know Ryan and you see this in the film the more I realized it it was really more about him and then More than anything. His Dad who goes off who just drops everything and goes on this odyssey to to find a way to get his son out of jail. What was the most surprising information that came out of this process for me? The most surprising rising thing was that you can really go to it. It's very easy. It sounds crazy but it's true. It's very easy to get someone to put someone in prison. Even if they're innocent if there's an unsolved murder out there and you and I I say that person did it. That's all that's needed in. In some ways it takes a corrupt prosecutor in this case guy named Kevin having grain to Manipulate just two people and get them to say that someone did it in this case this Guy Ryan and and that's like that's that's a lot of evidence that's two people in that can convince the jury quite easily that You know a person should should spend the rest of the rest of their life behind bars and so that was the most surprising thing to me was just how easy it is for prosecutor to manipulate evidence and also that a prosecutor essentially. I don't WanNa get in the weeds. But essentially can has complete immunity so they can make up evidence. They can fabricate advocate. They can do all sorts of things in very very rarely and they can they get in any trouble. Even if it's been documented that they've done wrong it was so frustrating watched. I also really taken by this incredible relationship ball family members taken with the in fact appearance Divorce still were so connected when it came to this case the love of his sister love of his friends. How did you get emotionally connected to this family to yes I got very emotionally connected You you know by the by the end of it. I was advocating on social media and such for Ryan to be released I I had taken part in petitions and at all sorts of things. And that's where I think in a lot of ways I got really almost too. Close it to The case and That's where and I think. This is true documentaries. And it's true in reality reality TV documentary series where an editor when you talk about like how the how the sausage is made inhibitor. MAKES MAKES MAKES A world of difference in Riyadh and editor named Sam Lee who edited dream killer as she really made it she made it from like a JV film to Varsity Film. I'm a few will she. She she was able to take all this footage and you think about it. We're talking got I don't know how many hours of courtroom footage interview interview footage home video footage of Ryan is dad spending some twenty years and was able to make it into hopefully a cohesive. You know our in forty something. I'd have felt hour and forty one minute or so film and so certainly certainly she was was kind of the game changer. In in terms of making the movie. How easy was it for you to get other footage from other news? Organizations Erin Moriarty obviously covered this case extensively as well. was there a generosity from other news organizations That's a good question I wouldn't say I suppose I I- forty eight hours lead. I mean the one thing I do remember really well is. I wanted to see how the case was covered when it was first. The trial was first happening. and to see how how the media treated Ryan and you know once you put cuffs someone. It's very hard for people to get that image out of their mind and for them to not think that that person is guilty. Perception is slowly changing but I think it's hard and I remember. I went to a lot of local media outlets the local. I WANNA say. NBC ABC affiliate. And just this going to the they. They let me guess they were. It was very nice of them to do that. They let me go to their storage facilities and I would just be there for hours going going through looking going finding the day that Ryan was likely in court going through all of their news segments and trying to find Ryan what I'm talking about Ryan or or reporting on the case and we ended up finding some stuff in We don't have a narrator in the films to relent quite a bit of that do the do the storytelling for us. So I'd say the media was was pretty generous in allowing me to do that Overall and so what is the update on Ryan now because one can only imagine how difficult it would be to get acclimated back to the world with as you mentioned people have this preconceived idea of him because at one point he did wear in costs so the house he doing and was able to find work and it seems like I think he's in a relationship now he'd be being aged yeah So Ryan and I remain really really good friends. He has done a lot of work on behalf of other people. Who are wrongfully wrongfully incarcerated? He wrote a book about the importance of of working out. He also the two of US created is an MTV show. It was only on for season but documented three different people who were like likely wrongfully convicted and called unlocking the truth. And he's he's done well I think he'd be the first to say it's very difficult You know to be behind ars for ten years and lose your twenties. Essentially he lost his entire twenties. And you come out and you're expected to just kind of pick things up where they left. Aw that's not so easy. So he had his ups and downs. I don't WANNA I don't WanNa talk for him but You can certainly follow him on instagram and twitter at life after ten. I think by and large though he's doing well and he's he's done a lot of traveling and sort of trying to make up for lost time and then how is his father. Her Bill. Ferguson is good. I think he's a he's a you know if you see in the movie he It makes me choke up. Just thinking about it he You know he would do anything for his son and it was one of these relationships you know you hear father son relationship and and sometimes you know you hear that and you think okay you know sure they were friends. These two are legitimately like best friends and you saw that in the home video radio footage in the movie That we dug up and and I think you really. There's nothing. You could do worse to Bill Ferguson. Listen I mean taking away his son for that long I can't imagine and retrying captured in the film to some extent so I think he's doing much better And he certainly getting to spend a lot more time with Ryan and and And you know that's that's an incredible thing. It's a spectacular project. I am so grateful for the work that you've done and I know that this will have a tremendous impact on everyone who watches it. I can only imagine that you've got other great things that you're working on. Tell us what you're working on a podcast that I'm working on now called. What really a happened? Which is produced by seven bucks productions which is the rocks company and we followed different mysteries stories both modern and historical and then I also have another podcast called gangster capitalism working on season two now but season one was about about the college admissions scandal?

Burn and it's it's really sad I mean it's it's getting to the point where many people are having to evacuate and it's costing people homes and it's a it's a tough deal and I don't know if we ever expected to get like this. Talking with people earlier today, it was one of those I've said this so many times but I think it's worth mentioning that look it started out as not a problem nobody was worried about it, and now it's the third biggest wildfires we've ever seen in the state of Colorado like that is just nuts. Another local story that will get into is well, there's some senior citizens at A. Senior Healthcare facility here in Greeley that well, they had a protest dive into that story a little bit as well. The grownups debated Wednesday evening. That was fun. And give you some of my thoughts on that. It was just I won't give you my thoughts on that a little bit later. Michelle Vance is the the PR the Chamber President for the Windsor Area Chamber of Commerce and she will be joining us to talk about a ballot initiative that they've got coming up here. In this election yeah. They're still on election coming up in just a couple of a couple of weeks now can you believe it? And it's. This is an important one. It's a very important ballot measure that without if people just look at this on the surface and don't dive in to actually what it means it's GonNa look like well, just trying to raise taxes.

Can you believe it? We've got high school football coming up later this evening but right now let's dive into news for Northern Colorado and where should we start? Let's start first with this cameron peak fire. The. Fire jumped again and they can't fire crews ignite fire along Colorado fourteen to protect combs. This is what's so unique about how they how they fight fires and it's something that I don't think a lot of people understand really because they are literally fighting fires with fire and it's so strange to me that that's an effective way to do it. But they did this, they let this fire to try and slow it down Let's look at this here. There's a a new evacuation coming out now to with the CS you Martin Mount Facilities, which is not like I said this these evacuations are just continuing to go but can repeat fire crews plan to use helicopters to drop plastic flammable spheres. Above Colorado highway fourteen to ignite a fire in an unburned island in an effort to protect homes on Wednesday. So they're pulling out all the stops right now this is again out of the Colorado and by miles bloom heart. The good news and I hope that this stays true. The good news about this we are expecting some rain and some possible snow coming up this weekend on Sunday that's going to be very important because every time we've had this prediction of a little bit more rain or snow it hasn't panned out and it needs to it needs to pan out this time. Because this fire now is just ridiculous. It's already up over a hundred and thirty one, thousand acres but they did just evacuate issued a mandatory evacuation for the Pin Green Park Road and the monument Gulch area including the Colorado State. University. Mountain. Campus. This was just this morning six am this morning they issued this because of the spread of this. Here's a quote from John Norton. Janssen. With current and expected fire behavior, we expect the amount campus to be impacted by the Fire Front during today's shift and this this is the thing like the winds keep changing up there. So they'll think that they've got going in one direction and and that's what we were talking about when we were talking about the Molin fire we were right. We were worried about the Molin fire in the camera peak fire coming together will it's completely shifted now. In its headed the other way, and it's causing people to have to go in a hurry issue. President. Joice McConnell said I just received an alert that the fire is on the ridge above the campus and that the firefighters expect there to be a significant impact on the campus. McConnell said the loss of the mountain campus would be terrible loss with significant impact. Right and there's a lot of structures and there's a lot of people going through this but hopefully that That weather that I was talking about can can come together and we can have that happen. But you never know like that's what Colorado's weather is and I know that cliche but Carlos weather is so ridiculously hard to predict that it's it's gotTa happen. It's we gotta have a rain. We have to have a rain to help these firefighters out because already like I mentioned earlier hundred, thirty, one, thousand acres already burned making it the third biggest fire that we have seen in the state of Colorado. Ever WanNa get in on the conversation feel free to call in nine, seven, zero, three, five, three, thirteen, thousand, nine, seven, zero, three, five, three, thirteen, ten you can text that K of k a text line at three one, nine, nine, six, three, one, nine, nine, six, new textures. All you have to do to subscribe is text Kfi two, three, one, nine, nine, six, governor police has been making the rounds he was in Greeley earlier this week. But his message has remained constant no matter where he's at. We are seeing a rise in a continued rise of covid nineteen. Hospitalet hospitalizations are on the rise as well. and governor polls is trying to push this and he's saying that with these continued increases, it will threaten the State Hospital capacity we don't know I. Mean. It would be a ridiculous rise in a hurry but the fact of the matter is that the were even having this conversation. Is a little worrisome and. We've learned a lot about this disease. There's dink. What you will here's the facts as of today, hospitalizations are up again this is from Kris van veen reporting on Cova nineteen there are two hundred, sixty, eight people in the hospital here in Colorado last week that was two, hundred and nineteen we're getting close to peak. We saw the highest we saw was like the second or third week in. July. If you can remember that back f are seems like it's forever ago. That was right after we had. All of those protests going on with people gathering for those way people gathering for the fourth of July you had some are coming around it. So it was like the perfect storm, right? What I will say and I don't really think that. This is getting enough. Attention is the in July. One of the Colorado Department of Health. One of their models said that the peak we were gonNA see a bigger peak in. October. Than what we saw in July. So. Right is there reason to be alarmed? Sure shoe should we be making sure we are social distancing and doing those proper things if you are at risk absolutely. But didn't we know this was coming? Polls discouraged Colorado ones from what he called a quote unquote wishful thinking mindset people in their forties might assume that it really it's really people in their fifties who could get sick enough to be hospitalized women might assume it's really men who are at higher risk and so on. We all want to think at somebody else police said guess what folks? It's some it's it's everybody. Excuse me this virus Mrs no opportunities. It's the president of the United States for two to three days. It's your friends and neighbors in it could be you if you're not careful. You're seeing in Estonia. Remember when when he came out in, he said where the damn mask. That was a direct quote from governor polls. It was that and he called people who didn't wear a mask quote selfish bastards. So. The governor is starting to ramp up that that verbiage again, he's really starting to come back with the the verbal warnings and he's getting serious with them. I mean rightfully. So maybe But we knew it was coming. This is what I'm saying. So we knew that this was going to happen. You're seeing weakened immune systems because people it is flu season. We are now in the middle of flu season. We see this happen every year I'm not comparing Cova nineteen to the flu I want to be very, very clear about that. But the cold and flu we see it rise this time of year. Why wouldn't cove nineteen do the same thing? My question. I. Have Some questions about this. The main one is that the masks were what was. Making sure that this wasn't spreading if the mask were responsible for the decline for a couple of months. I don't think people are just not wearing them anymore. I think with the publicity and with what we thought we were learning. More people were wearing them. But now the numbers are climbing in their creeping backup. So why? And I think that's what a lot of people are looking at. Locally Lamoure County moved into high risk terrain as of this week according to the county health, Department Cove Nineteen Dashboard, the tracks various risk factors of the spread. The county hasn't had this that many of nineteen patients in hospitals since May. So they've got twenty in case you're wondering learmont. County. Twenty Let's keep. Keep our eyes on the prize here. We know more about this virus we do. We know the people that it's going to affect. From one. I have said if you are at risk if you are at risk stay home this. This virus will kill you. It will kill you if you're in one of those at risk demographics. But. If you're not. You're going to be okay. Take those necessary precautions. SOCIALISES If you believe the mask works and and the local businesses. Hey, where mask where mask? If you don't support that. There's businesses out there. That are not requiring masks. We're working our way around news four northern Colorado on this Friday. Targeted by the COVID nineteen numbers, the big Joe the jump surprising me a little bit I thought. We'd see a trend when we saw what we I know. We saw this with C. You right and we saw the increase in cases and where it was going But I didn't think it was going to be this continued. I every model until now. Has Been False that they've put out every model anybody's put out because we didn't. We didn't know enough about it. So. What does the what this does? Tell me about the Economy Department of Health. Is. In July we knew a heck of a lot more than we did in May when this first models came out. because. They have got this one right we're nearing that we're nearing that peak already that we were Ad. So. What's next? What is next? You, can't, shut. Businesses. Back, down. I don't I don't think you'll see it. I don't think he'll I don't think you would see American people shut their businesses in La hits back down. What does that mean though like? Where does that leave us as a state as a country? because. People work their whole entire lives. For one thing. Whatever they're passionate about for me it's radio right. It's sales. and. I'm not even the business owner in here if someone took that away and said, no, you can't do that. Have to shut everything down, you have to shut her down. No. Coming arrest me. And think about the people who have worked their entire lives towards something. And they know that if they back down again, that's going to be the end of it. Well then you have a lot of people talking about well, what's the point? What's the point? What's the point of going on and that comes into to mental health and that comes into a lot of thanks. So Cova nineteen is on the top of a lot of people's mind. Let's just ride this out. Let's see where these numbers go colorado as a whole has done. Pretty Damn. Well, I expected to get back under control four twenty time. Let's take a break. We'll come back on the side I talked about some senior citizens. Who held their own protests? It was peaceful by the way we'll talk about that. When we come back, it's no present by the jeanine agencies on northern connor voice thirteen ten Kfi K.. Apart Northern Colorado's force thirteen ten KFI A block party. Wednesdays from four to ten PM. Donald Collusion specialist studios. I am tanner short pulling double duty here on this Friday. At six thirty, you'll hear Clark, Johnson and myself as we will be broadcasting the weld central rebels, Anthony Eaten reds, the first high school football game of the year for us here on Kfi. The practice of physical therapy pre game show that starts at six thirty. We'll be back with you live from. speaking of proactive physical therapy and sports medicine. This blood flow restriction therapy I know it's a lot of big words I say, Ryan. Looks confused every time that I do blood flow restriction therapy. Simply put is this. You have surgery and things don't go well. Even, if the surgery goes perfect, you lose mobility Lou strength, you lose confidence in your body. I had this. I had a surgery I broke my leg. I broke three different bones in my leg. Had this happened? It was nasty terrible. I had surgery. And I didn't. I literally didn't know how to run anymore. It was weird I. Know it sounds very strange. I didn't know how to run I was so weak I couldn't move my leg those different areas. and. They didn't have blood flow restriction. On that guy now American Day they didn't have this will they didn't, but I did have proactive physical therapy and they walked through it. Okay. Here's. Let's get the mobility back. Let's and they they're not gonNA. Rush you back. But they're gonNA make sure that they're going to do everything. They can to get you back back to blood flow research therapy. I'm all over the place on this Friday apologised blood flow restriction therapy. It reduces the amount of blood that goes to certain areas where we're going to have this the surgery done. And it it. You don't lose the strength as much. You don't lose the mobility nearly as much. You don't lose any of that stuff as much as you would without it. And now that I've babbled on about this and he probably more confused about blood flow blood flow restriction therapy than when we started. Just comprehensive. Say Hey I heard this dude on the Radio News Tigon a lot about it. He's not a very confused. Can you clarify bracket Colorado dot com there's more information there as well I got this lead on the story a couple of weeks ago. And it's been a couple of crazy weeks but I wanted to circle back around to it and we're going to get into more. On Monday fair acres manor. Is a senior citizen home. And here in Greeley and they had. A. Protest and this is fascinating. So Josie Sanchez. is a resident at very acres manner and. She had. A daughter that at fifty I believe the the. Let me triple check I don't WanNa mess at fifty one years old she was diagnosed with cancer. After, her first chemo treatment. Her husband fan her lying on the floor dead. Tragic. Tragic Story. This is, Josie Sanchez. And obviously, she hasn't been able to see her daughter. She wasn't able to see her daughter for seven months because of this. And now, she'll never get a chance to see her daughter again. It's a terrible story. But Josie Sanchez said enough is enough She called a special meeting. With the people who with very cautious manner and the other residents and said I want to hold a protest. Outside they're all masked up there. All socially distance. Some donning signs that say we want families back. Prisoner in our own home. and fair acres manner supported them. There's very manner staff who stands right there Ben Gonzalez with very manner will join us on Monday to talk more about this. But. When you talk about cove nineteen and you talk about okay for for some of us, the most that it's impacting us is that now we've got to wear a mask every once in a while. It's important to remember these stories. In it is serious for. These people. But. This is where I will go down and I will. I will die on this hill. Every person regardless of age regardless of gender regardless of race. Should have the individual choice to see their family. Because if I'm ninety three years old. I would rather die seeing my family than be locked up in a senior citizen home not being able to. At Ninety three years old look I probably won't even make it that long but and ninety three years old I I would be as high risk as possible with Gobert. I don't care. What type of life are reliving? If we can't spend it with the ones that we love and I'm not trying to get sentimentally I'm just making this point. that. A lot of people are going through this right now and it's it's terrible. It's absolutely terrible. So what do we do what we change? Who We're going to talk to Ben Gonzalez fairy cars manner about that more on Monday closing in now on four thirty one. Let's take a little bit of a break here when we come back on the other side, Michelle Vance Area Chamber of Commerce the winner Area Chamber of Commerce. President. Our executive director will join me excited to talk to her about this. She's got some stuff on the ballot that she's going to explain a little bit better for Ryan Kelly Tanner went. Let's take a little bit of break here. Let's go to the bottom of the hour news and Weather Center Dan Patrick the whole show and Colin Coward or Northern Colorado's for. Thirteen ten KFI K. Thirty six now welcome back in. This is no co now prison by the Jeanine Agencies Tanner, Schwendt? Ryan. Kelly doing the production work on this fine Friday afternoon. Very excited to be joined by our next guest we talked to her Oh, about a week ago it was. When we had that special day where we were raising money for Red Cross, should you so generously donated and helped us our goal and we're very happy to have her back on the program. She's going to be a great friend of not only the show. But of the station, it is the executive director of the Windsor area. Chamber of Commerce. It is Michelle Van Michelle. Thank you so much for joining us. or Larry Tanner. How's it going? It's going well here I hear you're doing some fun things out there today. Rally Friday, right. Up Some. Absolutely will thanks so much for joining us. I know there's a couple of things that we want to get into here and I want you to Kinda just. Introduce, and then explain what we're talking about when we talk about this proposition with this measure that's going to be on the ballot coming up in November. So no-one likes taxes, right? We all hate. I I. Get it. You have to raise a little money to support business and the measure on the ballot this year that re. Going to. That does not have lodging tax attached to our visitors stay. So if you stay in a motel or AIRBNB we don't collect a special tax like everyone else around us to help promote our local businesses. So many communities use the lodging tax to do visitor guides and promotions do radio spots radio advertising right. Commercials. Ads and things like that to support your local community. And so we talked about this a little bit. This is a proposition. You know a lot of the wording of some of these can be. Very complex right, and it is important to to read through everything to understand where those taxes are actually coming from or whose taxes are going to be impacted by this. Yeah no one wants to read shall the town of Windsor raise taxes? Off like the first. But because the Taber we have to, you know we have to have it worded that way and that's okay. I, respect that. But nobody wrote an argument against there was no opposition actually, we even have our local hotel here supporting us because they get to sit on the board. So this lodging tax can be collected by the local hotel and AIRBNB or whoever stays visitors, and so that is going to go into a kitty and we're GONNA have a border five that's going to make a decision on that board is are a representative from the hotel so they get to dictate how the money is going to be spent on their money. And so I guess, let let me play a little bit of a devil's advocate here. Why do you have why? Why the lodging the owner of the hotels? Why are they in favor this if it's an increase taxes for them why does that make sense to say okay, I'm for this. Right. Because we have some really cool developments that are happening here lender we have one that's already in play, which is power to play, which is a great great God amazing business that brings people in from all over the country, and we want to be able to market and have dollars to be able to market to those visitors to come to Windsor and spend their money. Go to the local restaurants go to local places when you're coming from out of town, you have to stay in hotel. So why not promote our local hotels? So the the goal is and it's funny saying it's called heads in beds. Yes, and you want to get people to be able to stay in your town and and spend dollars because. How the the beast is said you know government is through local sales tax and use tax, and so if you want a nice community and yet people coming to visit your Kooky entity, which are you know cars on your street, the impact, your police if you have money coming in to offset that cost that's going to help your community. Talkie with Michelle vans with the Windsor Area Chamber of Commerce. Michelle know that the city of Windsor as well as the chamber you guys are working in unison here, and like you said, kind of starting to offer some of these big development plans what is coming up for Windsor Well. We have some great well. We already have power to play, which is an amazing business that brings lots of visitors but we have this new project, which is It's the semi professional. Future Legends Sports. Park, which is bigger than that. It's bringing in volleyball soccer softball tournaments from all over the country are going to come here and play, and they are going to have three hundred hotel rooms. So, why not take those dollars? It's a whopping three percent, which is very slow on the visitor and take those dollars to be able to say, Hey, the you're here come to our restaurants come to our downtown come in shop in our stores. We're going to me those dollars if they're already in. The market. And we Michelle you know in conversations that you and I have had You believe in as do I that that Windsor can truly be a tourist destination. Hundred percent you know we we were known for our golf yet beautiful Pelican lakes highland highland meadows. But we have beautiful lakes. We have Windsor Lake where you can water ski. We have this beautiful downtown ingrate great restaurants. So My job here at the Chamber is to attract people to come to Windsor, which also helps our members, right. So when all waters rise all boats rise and so we're going to get more exposure turning our office, which is located in the heart of downtown Windsor into a visitor. Center. So we're going to be open on the weekends. So if you are a new resident or you're a visitor to winter, we're going to be the hub of the community and this lodging tax is going to help us to afford that it's going to be sustainable for us to be able to support our local businesses. So know when we talk about a lot of these different measures and we've talked about him because we're talking big things, right? We're talking big MOONCAKE. Yeah. A lot of people say. Yeah maybe like five ten years especially when he talked about the future legends because there's been so much. Controversy but maybe inconsistency with the the start dates, right why I mean why? Why Now? Why are we so confident that we need this so that we can start rolling on this. They broke ground. So that's happening and they've hired an amazing team A. Marketing Tournament I mean the guy they hired a gentleman that it worked for the Olympics. He knows people all over the country and world, and that's going to be there tournament director. So you know we have someone in place it's going to bring the appear to be able to play. At, Colorado Gorgeous where the best summers ever I mean we have great spring and fall you know winter they. They're building this amazing dome for Acre Dome that'll host like thirty volleyball courts and two. Major like like senior level ballfields so They got a great plan and my job here with with with measure three, my job is to be able to say, okay. Now that you're here, let's entertain you. Let's take a few more dollars out of your pocket and support our local businesses when I do have to say I got to give you props for for I finding something positive to say about Colorado winters I. Know you're. A girls. Well, I live in the mountains I we were. We live over four thousand feet and I had we have our snow in California this year than we did here in Colorado so I can handle it. I like it. I like it. All right. Let's Let's shift gears a little bit here. Michelle. Let's talk about Cova Nineteen, it has had just. A horrifying impact on a lot of local businesses and cities as well and chambers as well. How what is the state of Windsor as a whole from what you've seen and the Chamber of Commerce? Windows. Open just like a lot of businesses in weld county were open for business or where we got grit right? We're we're jumping through hoops were making sure that the people feel safe and comfortable and our businesses. But we'RE NOT GONNA skip a beat we businesses need to be open we need to support local and one of the things I wanNA talk to your your audience out there before you go to Amazon, please think about your local businesses think about your downtown think about the shopping community because they depend on you. If we don't support them, they don't support your soccer team, your your baseball team you lamb at the fair your stare at the fair whatever you need for sponsorship. If we don't show them love, they're not gonna be able to take care of you will. It's a May trickle down isn't what I'm looking for, but it's Hit. Those local businesses hire those kids as soon as I get out of high school. That that importance of local, even from community to community I know you're you're talking specifically about Windsor but. Across the country across Colorado across everywhere now is more important than ever. because. When we support our local economy, they support us they still are potholes they hire police department they keep our fire department staff is we think about our own community I know it's kind of weird because we're all digital. We have an APP really quick and make an order that you know in the pot really fast on Amazon, but it's it's here too and so we just have to Kinda reap train ourselves because those people don't support. Have you ever seen Amazon the BACK OF THE JERSEY? I. Haven't I've ever seen target or Walmart. or any of them on the back of your Kids Jersey or patch on their sponsor banner never it's a, it's a mom and pop shops. It's those people who care about us and those are the ones that are going to take care of us and we're going to take care of them. We need to show them loud because they've been nailed during this Kobe and we think twice about how much we care about them if they care about us. So before you hit click think local Michelle couldn't agree more with that at all You have a lot of contact with a lot of your chamber members. The biggest problem that a lot of these businesses are facing right now. Consistency from the feds and friend the state they want to know the rules we don't want the goalpost move constantly we need to know what the plan is like right now you know we're pretty much limited on how many people you can have inside a restaurant. Are we all going to sit outside in a tent to have dinner at a fine restaurant? We just need the rules to be consistent and we need. To know where the end game has because that's how businesses plan. Right they plan on their quarter and half year and their full year and budget season's upon us right now, and we just WANNA be able to know what the rules are were. Are you planning because we've just heard the governor talk about how he's worried about the cove nineteen hospitalization numbers going up how do you? How are you planning as the? President. Well I think we're leaving it up to the responsibility of our residents and our business owners If you're if you're in a compromised position, maybe you need to you know be very careful if you're young and healthy we know the numbers and they don't lie and we need to be able to take care of our community. So I think it's I I'm I'm leaving it up to the individual business I think they know their business better than anybody they know their customer better than anybody and they're gonNA make sure by taking care of Michelle Vance the the president of the Windsor Area Chamber of Commerce. Michelle, do you have any activities coming up here before too long that you need to talk about? Well. We're doing super fun event and I. I. Appreciate and I talked to you last night I.

Yes they are but you know what thanks is nice but also recognition of their efforts and their sacrifice is also appropriate.

The ruling follows weeks of legal wrangling over whether abortion is the non essential medical procedure. Texas is among several states where Republican officials have argued that abortion should be put on hold in an effort to free up medical supplies. That's led to several legal maneuvers resulting in a quickly shifting series of court orders controlling the procedure medication abortions. Using pills were briefly allowed to continue but now a federal appeals court says they must be suspended along with most surgical abortions planned.

The Ambassador Bridge (Entry 039.EZ4705)
"This sir we are Jennings and John Rodrick we speak to you from our present which we can only assume as your distant past the turbulent time that was the early twenty I singer during the great cataclysm that will surely befall our civilization we began this monumental reference of strange obscure human knowledge. These recordings represent our or attempt to compile and preserve wonders esoterica. That would otherwise be lost. So whether you're listening from an advanced civilization or have just reinvented the technology to decrypt our transmissions. This is our legacy to you. This is our time capsule this is the you have accessed entry zero three nine dot easy four seven Oh five certificate number three six six three four. The Ambassador Bridge Search. I know you're a capitalist absolute and you believe aw strongly that capitalism is the best. Do you not read my system. You're not read my blog. Marxist Dad got lots of tips for the Marxist DADS out there Marxist. Dad's what are some of your tips. it really doesn't work out. Yeah sure being a Marxist Dad in our modern culture a little. It's a little bit of an uphill battle But capitalism I don't WanNa shock you or our future our listeners to say that capitalism left unfettered often produces surprisingly inefficient results. You're not supposed to say that I know I know you WanNa Libertarians. Word donating on patriotic. Anyway so no that's true. They believe that we should. We should lift ourselves up by our bootstraps. I can't believe these guys money for their show. So we'RE NOT GONNA lose any income by saying that we think this but yeah the twentieth century is kind of been a series of have. I mean I know we have to see the failure of communism but you can also see a bunch of terrible excesses of Of the capitalist way of life as well yeah and one of the dangers one of the one of the dangers of capitalism courses Monopoly right monopoly is is what results. When one ambitious and and ever ristic capitalist decides to corner the market on thing a product or a service and he's avaricious evaristo ever issues avaricious Marissa's sounds like a blaxploitation movie I averages he's the friend Dick who's a sex machine? Yeah Evaristo it's it. Sounds more like altruistic like he's part the average this in part out of stick or ultra vista but But there are plenty of instances in the twentieth century and Dan and nineteenth century. Where we see that that leading the market make decisions doesn't always produce the most efficient results? I mean we feel like we're living in a time where the you know. A smaller group of people have figured out how to make those rules work for them and only then yeah well. Yeah because money begets money right. If you have money you make money and if you don't have money you don't you don't end up being on the side of you you don't end up being on the victor's podium. Right even in court cases I mean it. Generally tends that money collects but in the United States aids transportation was often away for FOR MONEY TO ACCRUE UNTO A family or unto to a corporation because the United States is a big a big country and We produce a lot of goods and services but also natural resource exploitation like transportation trucking to get her and trains shipping right. That's right it Like in my favorite book atlas shrugged well and in our you. We've done a couple of omnibuses on on the Sir various the the way that the land was apportioned to railroad companies CHEQUERBOARD CHECKERBOARD checkerboard early on in the omnibus. So transportation ends up being a it's an aspect of the global economy that we It becomes kind of invisible to us. I mean we're we're we're very aware of trucks on the highway wave ships on the ocean but the idea that it's all an interconnected infrastructure all kind of web of that those trucks on the highway aren't just annoyances. They aren't just obstacles and they aren't just point to point systems but you know ships lead two trains lead to trucks lead to vans lead to Lead to be rams on bringing you your little whatever furby the the the box of replacement staples in its own box with padding right did you. I mean you can see how quickly store shelves empty in the case of an emergency emergency you know like if if a city thinks storm is coming or a blackout is coming or whatever shelter just empty within days well within yeah yeah ours ours. Same thing could happen with fuel happens with a lot of commod and you realize you just assume there's always going to be every brand of marshmallow. Another brand of Syria will be right there for you. Because we're entitled awful people because of the corrosive effects of capitalism will be. Don't realize that one hundred people thousands of people have been working hard to make sure that got to you. And it's one of the it's one of the most popular refrains in the apocalyptic post-apocalyptic apocalyptic crowd the irs and the You know the bunker builders. They're quick to remind us what a fragile system that is news and quick to say like in the event of a catastrophic event an earthquake any kind of breakdown of society -iety that wants the grocery stores empty and don't fill back up again we really are on our own and the and the the web. Yeah exactly that fragile. I totally that person who just thinks of the grocery stores an offer that will just producing marshmallows to the edge of the shelf. And no matter how many I take they're just GONNA keep coming out the back and that's not how supermarkets were no one in fact. My mom is the opposite. I mean you would be maybe having heard a little bit about about my mom. Future links would not be surprised to learn that eighty five years old. She has four years worth of stores in her basement. Basement bunker duffle bags full of top Roman and she had a hardscrabble upbringing she did and she's ready for the big one she cheese has She bolted her house to its foundation on Dacian. She has she has all. She's and she said to me many times. I intend to help our neighbors. So don't don't you know. Close this blast door and lock it we. We're you know the people we know in the neighborhood are also welcome in the bunker. And I'm like mom that's not how bunkers work. It's not hunker everybody's in there it's like one of those lounges of the airport. The only fun is that not everybody can get in. She wants she wants to do. She wants both sides. She wants to have. She wants to have food for our family for the for the five years. It takes to reestablish contact with the outside world but she also would never not answer the door. I had a bunch of drums. The cracked week Patino. It happened. They left them in your garage or your bar and I think as a as a bit of set dressing and now you sold your barn. Somebody just inherited all my cracked tweet let new owners have all the cracked wheat. You put that in the listening you like jeopardy. Do you like cracked wheat. Because how would you like Ken Jennings Bundle of crap. This is the barn for you so yeah if things go wrong. I'm just you know putting my stuff in a bundle walking to your barn. Yeah well no come to my new house. Because that's where I'm I'm I'm replenishing all the stores that were the bunker is the new bunker but the system is is more fragile than even the even this right we we think about Like a Tassie something that shuts the system down down and we're all frantically scrambling but as you mentioned. We see in the event of a hurricane. We we hear apocalyptic scenarios about the State State of Florida. All the time where it wouldn't take much it wouldn't take it wouldn't take sees much higher than they already are to wash out out whole communities there or to isolate the entire state of Florida into or or in the case of a plan you know like isolate. I figured out how to do it. Then Destroy California is always it seems like just a few days from being a truly desperate situation but but but our network is even more fragile in that the the collapse of one or two bridges One or two raggio bridges would be enough to shutdown commerce between you know like there was a there was a freeway bridge that collapsed in Minnesota a few years in Minneapolis that was just an example of decaying infrastructure that hadn't been maintained everybody. Everybody knew right that that bridge was kind of the badge totally shabby bridge and and and when it collapsed it had a real dramatic economic impact on the region because it was a main thoroughfare thoroughfare. Were just take it for granted that today rivers are not an obstacle in the past civilizations would have been built around the idea of rivers is impassable impregnable Nepal. Ferrier afford or something and today. It's it's an annoyance when a bridge backs up because I'm going to have to go around to the other bridge remember that The bridge north of Seattle River is that suddenness skykomish or the snohomish river it gets the skykomish and it it turned out. It was when that bridge collapsed. I five over that little river. Yeah it turned out to be the only bridge for miles in either direction and that just kind of stopped the region through tough to get around that yeah yeah and that was an example of just a big truck that hit the trust and knocked it into the river so transportation is not the solution that turns out loud but if he's thinking about truck knocking out there bridges like The the the two tunnels and a bridge that lead into Manhattan from New Jersey. And they're all extremely vulnerable honorable when This is the plot of the Third Batman Movie. When when nine eleven happened you know the threat of of Of those bridges or those tunnels being flooded was a real. Would've it would've represented a much greater disaster when you're talking about. How Fragile Agile these bridges are? You're not encouraging people to take them out and to create their own fiefdom in some some part of this great land. No if we are going to certainly happen future our listeners know but it wasn't it wasn't because we encouraged when Manhattan gets turned into a giant prison island and at that point you're going to have to for prison island between nine hundred seventy eight and found nine thousand nine hundred seventy two but one of the One of the choke points one of the most kind of a outrageous an interesting bridges in the United States is is the ambassador bridge between in Detroit Michigan and Windsor Canada Windsor Ontario. I've never heard of this bridge. I know the Trivia fact about how Detroit is the one weird place Windsor. I guess is the one weird place in Canada. Where if you go north here in the United States do from almost anywhere in Detroit and you're in Canada because of what you call that little tender of Canada if the little the point the southern most tip of Canada I think? Yeah it's got a weird looks like nose or something like kinda sniffing at the Mitten of Michigan. Yeah I think of it as a as maybe the the Waddell of of like a giant. It's it's got pro bowl Canada's poconos with a fork like America you're done it's in there. It's getting up under this little tickle. It's cup in Detroit. The upcoming Detroit. Detroit and consent to that. Detroit River Separates Ontario from Michigan but it also is part of the Great Lakes Greater What it connects to the Great Lake? Huron to Lake Erie and Lake Erie is the is the lake that goes you know that that is the northern. The border of Ohio and Lake Michigan on the far side between Michigan and Illinois and then Lake Huron is between in Michigan and northern or sort of. I'm sorry southern Ontario Michigan. Sure on is all a fraud by the way they're really one late. Yeah there's there's nothing that would make you say. Those are two lakes that narrow conducted right but nobody would go to angle. Lake is south album Seattle and be like these are to lake. Mead point there's tradition and probably the order in which they were discovered is why we think of there being five grade late they come to a little a little waste at at at mackinaw city. Yes and they hang down on either side like like a yoke not a your cameras talk about what you were not not like two giant bowl testes but like a yoke like I mean I like. I like to identify geographical features. There's according to what part of a bull represent. Don't we in the sense like Bulgaria lease boil reuss. You know the the crazy thing is that That if you'RE GONNA call those two separate lakes why in the world isn't why in the world. Don't you call Georgian Bay. Its own Georgian Bay which is absurd which is a part of Lake. Huron why the heck is amid. It's its own lake. Let the record show that John. Lewis lifting his bifocals to appear at the map to give us this update on on the autonomy of Georgian Bay. Yeah but but the there there are There was a a shipping. I mean this is. This was all a shipping route In the era of the Erie Canal and the end when when boats did did the lion's share of of the heavy lifting the commerce of the basically the American American Midwest all of the grains and the cattle and the the agricultural output of the entire Midwest had to get to the eastern seaboard. Some way on the Edmund Fitzgerald well no those before the Edmund Fitzgerald but but because that would be bad but before the railroads this was this was is how all the Saint Lawrence seaway all the wealth of the of the breadbasket went out through this route and ship. We sing about the Erie Canal. We do. Although the Erie Canal we should do an omnibus on it. Boy It was a big project and and it opened and then the railways were invented and like became obsolete. Pretty a fast. The Saint Lawrence Seaway still does a lot of traffic but because he goes to the Atlantic not to Albany right. I think that have you been Albany connects to the river through when it comes to meet. Quality makes a huge difference in texture and taste and even though it might be better for you and the environment a lot of the higher quality meat you find at. The grocery store is just too expensive for most people's budget thankfully thankfully there's butcher box which are box believes.

That's butcher box dot com slash iheart or use the Promo Code Iheart at checkout during the age of the railroad and particularly like later on in the nineteenth century it was recognized that this little narrow place here on the Detroit River between those two lakes was the logical place to have the railroads cross have how how close is the narrowest point right. How it's the narrowest point and it's You know as we'll see it's about two thousand feet across the river there so it's not a it's not a a narrow span and a difficult a difficult span to bridge. The first railroad bridges bridges were proposed in the late nineteenth century. The the initial idea I think was to build a tunnel with the railroads. Were doing prior to that. was they the the trainline would arrive there. In Detroit they would put the trains on barges barged them across and then put them back on the rails in Windsor and send and the train up to Toronto and then do you think the engineer state and the trains east on the bow was he liked to to know it. Put a new engine tonight. Either side I bet you they they you know they still do that. The the Alaska Maritime Highway puts whole trains on barges here in Seattle and ships them up and takes them off off the other side or at least when I was a kid I think probably still do. Are they now just taking containers off a flat cars. Probably yeah maybe puts probably not big barges full of boxcars Fox cars like it was when I was little purchase fulla boxcars but but it was a choke point and it was recognized that this was a real you know this really slowed commerce and the shipping interests that were using the Detroit River going north and south bringing barges through as part of the the Saint Lawrence seaway they were not inclined to give any To give any quarter to the railroads that were running barges east east and west across the river. You know there was a railroad of the enemy right a natural competition the the first attempt to build a tunnel under the River was you know was sort of. They started working on it in the early arm. Sorry they started working on it in like eighteen unlikely immediately after the civil war eighteen. Seventy of the tented a tunnel before a bridge. Yeah attempted a tunnel seventy. That's really early for a tunnel. That long right it was and they didn't succeed. They got there and kind of couldn't couldn't finish it and and bailed out of it in a little bit later all simultaneously but like in in the mid eighteen seventy s they started discussing a bridge The the shipping interests refused to allow any plan. Dan had piers in the river. Because it would impede the shipping passage or you can go a roundup and so you know they so what it required was the suspension bridge that spanned the entire river which was technologically just to sort of above their pay grade at the time what. What's the early suspension attention bridges? I mean Brooklyn Later right Well that would have been almost ten times sure. Eighteen seventies eighties. Looks like it's about the same time. They started building the Brooklyn Oakland Bridge in eighteen sixty nine but it wasn't completed until the eighteen eighties but the you know the The East River is a much smaller. Span the Brooklyn Bridge is how how great a span is it. Also the Brooklyn Bridge is is a has peers in the main span is between the two between those two peers of sixteen hundred feet sixteen hundred. Yeah so this would have been this would have been a longer span than that and And there wasn't they weren't they weren't able to put together a consortium of financing for it it was sort of a pipe dream for a long time In nineteen ten the Michigan Central Railroad and the Great Western railroad sort of combined forces and were able able to build a railroad tunnel under the waterway but there were a lot of other railroad interests that converge. At that point that we're sort of kept out of I mean this was this was a private undersea railway and not one that had been made available to to everyone and it's international right. It's an international cross. It's a channel is a channel in fact it was the first tunnel ever her to connect to nations was crossing a border very informal back. Then you didn't have to worry about No I think there was no guy at the toll booth in the middle the tunnel I think the opposite I think crossing the border then. There was a mountie there that wanted to make sure that you had you had enough provisions to survive the winter mm-hmm but this was the this was only the third sort of tunnel of its kind in the first to connect to countries so it was It was a you know a big a big event but it still didn't serve there was. There was no car traffic. There was no pedestrian side to it. It didn't help anyone except one rail except for Michigan Central and the Great Western And so it was not until after World War One that the that there was a renewed push to build a bridge and the you know the the idea was candidate made a lot of sacrifices enrolled. We're one Canadians. The the Newfoundlanders the peoples of the maritime provinces they They made a a great contribution arowar one and a Lotta men died so there was an idea that they would build this bridge as a kind of a memorial or monument to the to the Canadian sacrifice but this was also a time when Detroit was beginning to become An industrial industrial an industrial center. It was the beginning of the American auto industry and and the communities around Detroit and across crossed. The river and Windsor. Were There were you know all these factories devoted not just to making cars but making all the the material that goes into making cars all the support network of things you know. I guess I never thought about some of that spilling across the border but Windsor became a Canadian. Industrial Did did and in fact there. A A lot of auto makes that that also were manufactured in Canada and Canadian factory. So you can buy American cars from this period had sixty fifty sixty seventies. I'm not this period but the but I'll be twentieth twentieth century. American cars that are Canadian in made have Canadian names and look almost the same but have slightly different headlights. Tail lights configuration. It's like when you go to Costco the TV or the Washer dryer or something has a different number so you can. Actually you can't pay us in shop. The manufacturer like sure. We'll tell you these but it'll have like a weird name played played on it. Is that right is that why can't take my consumer reports page down to Costco and they've thwarted you WanNa look at the consumer reports fades with the little circles. The half circles in the red for one. That's the best buy every time now. No Amanda doesn't want you to do that do so so they did. They started working on the they started working on the bridge. Sort of in that In that post roll were one timepiece and in nineteen twenty nine completed this the finally the bridge the span and there was now a international bridge at the time it it was the longest suspension bridge in the world. Did you say what your it opened. Nineteen twenty twenty nine and it was only. It was only a few years later that the George Washington Bridge opened and surpassed the span but but it was briefly for like when Chrysler building is only the tallest halls building in the world for like a few months. It always seems like a little bit of a Downer. Yeah you're you're working on it and you're like we're the dolls billion. The world or happens in sports we know some guy's edges a record and then he only has it for a year that I think that's what's so amazing about those records that stand for so long. Yeah those were head of their time. Bob Beamon was a alien from the future but this bridge became a became a super important link between the United States and Canada. If you look at a map and you that's what I'm doing right now. You look at Toronto and and Chicago. There's no other way round. This is this bridge is the shortest distance. Like the like really the option. If you don't have a boat food is to like drive up into the wilds Yay from Chicago. If you went all the way around you have to go around the top of Lake Superior basic that would that would be crazy. That'd be crazy but even though even if you're like avoid tolls okay. I head up into Superior Superior National Forest now. There are other bridges across across that gap between Michigan. And that's what I was GONNA ask is. Is there any narrower spots. There are other bridges tunnels. It must not have been I mean at the time there must not have been because this was the narrows but since then they have. There's a bridge at point. Edward I see. Yeah there are other routes. They aren't the most direct route and right in the center. There is is Lake Saint Clair which is a strange little always always been a thorn in my side a little pond that you have to go around and in the case of if you're coming from Chicago and this is all happening pre interstate state highway system but now after the advent of the interstate highways. Like if you're on I ninety four or you're on I seventy five and you come to Detroit right. It is not handier to continue on those freeways. All the way up to two Sarney's gotta go to north of Lake Sinclair Right. So this is the this is the direct connection and it goes. I mean the Ambassador Bridge goes from downtown. Detroit to downtown Windsor Windsor. And in fact on the Windsor side it just empties out in that delightful Canadian way right onto the streets like you get off. You're you're just like at a stop light and we see that here from Seattle going up to Vancouver right here on this street or whatever it is that goes right through Vancouver. You're you're on the freeway you know and then and you're all of a sudden you're just like in Vancouver. There's no they elected not to DEB. The highway turns into isn't Oak. Street is elected not to build a a freeway through the center of town. And so does he. I mean this is the artery between a major American city. Any major Canadian city. I mean isn't a nightmare. Does that think back up. Well it does the the the ambassador bridge over time became such a necessary artery. That it was a AH that I mean today it carries if you can fathom this twenty five percent of all trade between the United States and Canada who who are major trading part. That's so people understand this even in our time candidate is our biggest trading partner by far dwarfing China or anybody you would think of. Is Our number one trade partner. One in quarter of that trade goes across this bridge and which is which is astonishing punishing and made more astonishing by the following fact. The bridges privately owned wait. What today it was built built as a private enterprise? Right it was it was sort of funded by by a group of people that raise the money to put together. We're very sad about Canadian. Awartani Heroes candidate chipped in America chipped in and it was you know. It was kind of freewheeling times before the before the Stock Market Crash crash of twenty nine all of this was was happening in the Gogo. People were singing. We're in the money. As they built this bridge and it was it was owned by a by the Bauer bowers family for a long time and they fell kind of on hard times at a certain point and took the bridge public started selling stocks and A little fellow that you may have heard of Who runs a company called Berkshire Hathaway? Is That right Warren. Warren Buffett controls the bridge. Are you aware of this. This guy does. He live in a little house of the people that raise the basketball bridges. Seattle Warren Buffett started buying stock in the bridge because he is part of his. He's a savvy guy. He's a savvy guy he understands that transportation is a twenty five percent of all trade to Canada. Yeah so he started. He started buying stock in the bridge. This is now we're talking about in the late. Seventies inbreeds must be a toll bridge otherwise. It's hard to see what the profit motive is. It is it's a toll bridge edge and It must just be a money machine. Well it is in fact It makes tens of millions of dollars a year. But ah the time the late Seventies. It was kind of a depressed time and things were sort of generally falling apart across the country but a man by the name of men. Well Maroon Rune who was a detroit. Trucking Ceylon His father was it Lebanese immigrant. Who had who owned a couple of gas stations in the Detroit area and over the course of of several decades the family way was pretty savvy? They they sort of part laid their gas stations into a trucking business. There was a there. Were some cartage businesses hauling company that owed men wells father some money and he ended up taking the trucking company over and then expanding it and he became a like a a hauling magnate for the area self made man that's right I'm hauling. And his his his son Manuel took over the family business and recognized in the opportunity to buy shares in this bridge that because he was his trucking business was very auto industry focused. He did a lot of trucking of parts and services back and forth between Windsor and Detroit. What about those big car carriers? Love those I'm sure they had car carriers. I'm sure he had but also I think they're making the auto business so diversified right. There is a factory. That's just making the handles to roll the windows down. Chevy caprices probably not anymore but all of those parts and services need to get slept. It's Rubber Eminence related stuff to run the factories and so and so men well-made play for the bridge because he just sort of instinctively recognized that owning the bridge if that was really an opportunity for or one of the truckers one of the trucking companies. That's doing this business. It probably would give him an advantage over the other trump possibly possibly in a legal event. That's right well stops charging tolls to your own trucks Jack up the tolls on the other trucks. The thing is that the bridge is not a monopoly. Because the tunnel right there. Sure well so There's another tunnel called the Detroit Windsor Tunnel right open looking in one thousand nine hundred thirty. That was car tunnel and so the AH duopoly though. Yeah the the the car tunnel opened and there was now a different route for car traffic to take now. The tunnel has all kinds of restrictions on freight you can't take explosives or a and also I think there's a lot of limitations on any kind of trucking you can take through their a commercial trucking size wise but you can drive cars and so technically the bridge doesn't represent a monopoly but from the standpoint of trucks and trucking it's really the only the only viaduct there and so Maroon and does his does some stop buying he ends up with about a quarter of the stock in the bridge. Buffet has a quarter of the stock and Maroon just sort outplays claes him. What a Maroon I know he buys he buys buffet out and ends up owning the bridge? Be bought it for about thirty million dollars at a time when it was probably making close to that in tolls just in a year seems like a good by it was was it good Biden I hear about this. It was in nineteen seventy nine. You didn't have as much as five years old. Like many five year olds I did not have thirty million dollars. Always put into bridges and tunnels Dura couple years ago in the Silverdome was for sale. No Yeah you'd have to assume the debts but like the Pontiac Silverdome was for sale for like ninety thousand dollars. I do. I want the silver dome like we ought to look ourselves in the mirror. And how much do I want to own the Pontiac Silverdome. I mean you could have so. So many monster truck shows reenact wrestlemainia. Three a I think about this all the time. In terms of wanting to buy a castle castle in Scotland and you can get a castle in Scotland for not that much money but then you own a castle s. It's the upkeep job at the two best days are for Castle owners the day you buy the castle and the castle right what we say and the counselors who just think about like running a broom over that every every year as soon as you get done sweeping the start at the top and sweet but again a castle is a hole in the highlands. You pour money into well. This bridge ended up up being a bridge in the Detroit Windsor area that poured money into U Me Not you but into men. Well Okay you're speaking to me as if I were Manuela. Marrone it's kind of a little Yeah play I play acting thing. We're doing yeah. roleplaying gets a little role playing. I'll be Lebanese American Investment warmer on if you could be a little shorter in a little more litigious. He'll do you'd be a great character. Warren Buffett and you can feel like you got hosed here. The the thing about the bridge is that when it was built. There wasn't an interstate highway system. There was not a sense of Of traffic being this unimpeded flow. It wouldn't have felt like an oddity for some guy to to build a bridge and owner bridge bill bridge on London Underground was built by private companies unease who owned those lines. That's right and but at a certain point there was a kind of with the London Underground or with a lot of these private ownership of public works situations where awesome imminent domain factored. In and governments recognized like we need to nationalize. In some can some cases we need to nationalize the underground around. In order to standardize it some nations like to nationalize the entire oriole industry are you are you Hugo Chavez skeptic on the show when you depose a Shah for instance but but in this instance the respect for private property and the litigiousness of this man despite a lot of growing outrage that this chokepoint was controlled by a single kind of eccentric. Is he going to turn into a bond villain and closed the bridges like the joker will not that but I guess but as the interstate system expanded it did not ever fully connect to the ambassador bridge so sort of like the a Ah the inner change in Pennsylvania breeze would breeze. Would we see brees. Would we see a situation. Where although this bridge is handling ten thousand trucks trucks a day on the Canadian side? It just dumps them out into downtown Windsor. Windsor Canada is sort. I've never been. It's kind of famously is at a dump. Not not the crown jewel of Canadian city. I've annoyed Canadians once. This see I can if you want me to be the one. That's kind of a dumb you. You are already reviled by by Toronto far and wide and you know Detroit isn't really America's right fair like hottest city either. Although it's coming up it will be in five years. Once the the vines cover everything and then the coffee bars come in no. That's that's all you know the the they're tearing the vines down there there. Spruce it up and we'll see that in a minute but there were many many attempts to to build what was called Gateway Plazas that we're going to direct traffic onto and off of the bridge judge on the Canadian side on the American side an Canadians but they were thwarted by Manuel Maroon. Why does he not want his bridge to to be welcoming well because he controls the duty? Free Shops on either side is that and controls the duty-free gas stations now. Why are their duty free gas station? Well that's a really good question with some kind of this was negotiated in the. It's it's just a it's just a a quirk of the of the wave of the land on either side is owned and the way it's administered. But you know there's a thing called the the the international fuel tax agreement which is yeah. Yeah if complicated kind of math that the the interstate truckers have to perform when they go from Canada the United States and from state to state because every state taxes gasoline in a different way nations tax stat gasoline. A different way. These guys are all math wizards well so trucking used to have this sort of really burdensome system where they had a little tax certificates for each state state that they traveled across and we're paying different taxes at the end of the year. They had to figure out what taxes they'd paid in twenty five different states that they'd traveled and Candida. This actually speaks to me when I when I go talking to you. If I do a little event at University of Nebraska I actually declare that and I will pay state tax to the state underbrush. Even there's no way they would find me if I didn't so at the end of the year sometimes I'm paying I'm filing twenty different state tax returns and feel like a rube. I do it too. I pay California taxes taxes on things. I do download and they sure do but also when we used to tour in Europe a lot like we had to pay European European taxes and we also got exempted from some taxes and the UK and Ireland have different rules in so tax time. You've got all these pieces of paper for all these taxes. You paid to different places. Some of dodging rockstars thinking should have been well we. We made just enough money that we were that. We're that we're over the line of like you're visible now you can't you can't just like stuff it in your underwear. Just run to France like making Keith.

N. dot com slash start but so the international fuel tax agreement was one where where truckers needed to keep track of where they went but they didn't have to keep individual track of their taxes and at the end of the year at the taxes. They paid a different pumps at the end of the year. It sort of an average was has taken. How many miles did you travel? How many states did you cross? Here's your tax bill and then we're going to apportion the tax out to the the different jurisdictions but Manuel. MAROONS gas station. There at the hedge of this is just one issue with a huge line taking back into Canada big superstation he was able to because the taxes that are being paid on on gas stations on either aside about sixty cents a gallon he was able to charge a few cents less. Still make his gas. Cheapest in the the region but he's basically taking the fifty six percent six cents down fifty cent no and let the cars lineup. No he takes all that a he takes that additional what what I think jurisdictions around him think of as the tax dollar and he just puts that directly in his coffers so it's pure profit if it for him so he had very little interest in helping Canada or the United States direct traffic smoothly smoothly on and off his bridge. You want to stop at the stores and Biteau Blur own exactly right and the duty floor and then fill up your gas. He has two companies one called Detroit International Bridge Company and then the Canadian side has the has a company called the Canadian Transit Company. They're both part of his Centra. Centra Inc Empire so he has political entities on both sides. That that advocate for it it. It's been recognized for a long time. That this is an untenable situation and it really sticks. In the craw of governments on both sides bullishly Canada. I would assume incredibly Eh. Just really really sticks in their craw and they've tried to do A. They've tried sort of everything they've tried to distill the second second nicer bridge right next to it. Well you know what that is ultimately their plan. I'll be hilarious. The problem is that what you what we forget in the United States a lot as Canadians kind of Puff up their shirts and talk to us about their their Liberal democracy and they're there Free Healthcare is that candidate is full of conservative tea. Party wing nuts just like the United States antitax people whole crazy sort of like gun toting. I mean they don't tell us quite the same way but twenty minutes outside of any major Canadian in city and so there's been a lot of resistance to the idea of building a huge government bloated project react to duplicate sign. That's already worked to duplicate this working things just to just to cut out this guy. WHO's making an honest buck? What happened happened at nine? Eleven really put in bold relief. The problem which was that it everybody buddy saw immediately. I mean within an hour of nine eleven attention had turned to the ambassador bridge because of its like rare position As the kind of economic linchpin if you wanted to do damage to the American and Canadian economies all you have to do is take down this rickety old steel bridge and we're talking about billions of dollars a week in an revenue lost And so the bridge became name fixated on the skyscraper. I know there were a couple of things. They could have the nine eleven hijackers again. I'm not suggesting that he tried. Hi this but there were a few places. They could have They could have targeted. I get the symbolic value of big phallic skyscraper. But they really were fixated on it. You know so from the time before the truck bomb in the nineties. Just this what we think of is kind of an ordinary Americans skyscraper Anita because world the name World Trade Center. But you know they the. The hijackers wanted to blow up the Pentagon because I don't know what because they because it was an Fu but if they had directed a plane to the ambassador Ambassador Bridge they would have done a lot more harm so the ambassador bridge suddenly became a security concern. And the the State of Michigan National Guard flooded flooded on there with machine guns all of a sudden they needed to stop every single car and truck before it went over the bridge to search it to make sure that it wasn't filled with explosives and so in the months after nine eleven the line to cross the bridge was twelve hours long. And you missed that kind mountie you really do and hi to Mount Takami is over and I remember it too. I remember being on tour before nine. Eleven where you you drove into Canada and you didn't even really put on the brakes just kind of waved and they were like howdy neighbor and then after nine eleven where all Canadian border guards were dressed in black cammo with with with like submachine guns and they were like get out of the car. You're in a band you say. What kind of band? But but the tunnel to you know this was this was a choke point and both both the tunnel and the bridge but again all the truck traffic really had to go across the bridge and so in this moment the recognition that it wasn't just that this was this was a monopoly but the bridges the extremely narrow. It's not a six lane highway bridge right right. It's like A. It's a bridge that was built in one thousand nine to each each way and so it was traffic was down to one lane because because because of maroons resistance to build these plazas there wasn't room or any setup to build a giant sort. Have you still see at an airport that had no place the TSA the new TSA stuff right so stuff. Spills downed like in Newark spills. Down the side of a hallway. Because there's nowhere to put the line. Yeah remember that period when they were just putting false walls up okay. Well this side is secure. And that's why it's not that used to drive me crazy. What's the backup like on this bridge today? Today it's still four hour. Wait to get across the bridge at certain times podcasts. I know right you could. I'm sure there's someone listening to this show right now. Now waiting in line on the bridge Shari But the United States and Canada finally arrived at a plan to build a to build a replacement bridge. I'm sorry a second bridge. The screw you. Manuela marrone international. That's basically what it it was and they built it all the way sort of they build it quite quite a ways away. Nexus funnier next to us. Funnier right well marrone said and I'm I hope I'm pronouncing his name properly. It might be Maroon but that would be you know. I don't want to say I don't want to open you up to make what Maroon jokes over and over. I think it probably has Maroon Room Maroon like Haroon. Yeah men well Maroon. Let's let's go back and we'll just take us saying Maroon Maroon Maroon and we'll just sliced sliced that back in and every every place it'll be like one of those recorded messages where it's like. Well Mr Brown he. He sued to block the construction of a new bridge. And he said I will privately financed the construction of a neighbor bridge to my bridge. wjr like build a brand new one and I'll pay for it myself all you have to do is you know whatever build porta-pottys at each end which really set the tea party people on both sides of the of the of the river alight. Because they're like here's a guy a capitalist guy who's going to build for free and yet you you know big inefficient government wants to do it your way. That's right wants to just build pay tax dollars for something that somebody else wants to do but his lawsuits which had always been pretty effective in defending himself against government intrusion into his own business he wasn't able able to To block the construction of this bridge and he used all kinds of unscrupulous techniques. He had fake environmental review did that. He went down down and His like operatives from his company hammered eviction notices on the doors of all the houses in the neighborhood that would be kind of in the off ramp area. I'll fake you. Vixen notices where people came in you know like were were meant to immediately call their congressmen. it turned out that you're one of the things he didn't he didn't have to do. This was just a like a like a trick and fate on the Canadian side. The the approach to the new bridge was the habitat one of the few habitats and the only one in Canada of the endangered Butler alert. Garter snake so we've got our very own spotted owl. That's right so story. The gardener snake. The Butler gardener snake is largely indistinguishable from The common gardeners this belong to a butler. It comes on a silver tray. The differences are that it's a small headed snake. The this has a small head and I don't know if you've ever had a small headed cat morzine small headed cat but it's an abomination you don't WanNa see you don't want to see a small headed snake. Pin headed carnival freak the other thing about Butler Garter snake is that when it when it feels endangered. Its method of escape is not to run but is to just sit in place thrash around. I think. See why it's such a threatened species that's all coming together but there are very few populations of it and it is. It's it's even it's even certainly extinct in the future so or or the future or are just maybe this is in the bridge project that that kept them alive and they took over the ecosystem. Well it turned out they. They didn't want to stop the bridge program and again. This is another thing that gets that's gets it's called out by people who are who are given to conspiracy. The government of Canada hired biologists to relocate the Butler Garter Garter snakes out of this little area stomp in they all start wiggling there in place. That's right grab them. Throw them in a bag. I mean they're gutters next. They're not gonNA hurt you right but dad again. Seems like seems like an awful lot of sort of government pork-barrel free hand in the market would not move garter snakes but they begin again construction of it and what the governments had the ability to do was to reroute their highways to their new bridge. And so yeah yeah they they have the power to put a sign up. It's not signed. Being like dangerous. Privately owned brands this way. Ontario Highway Four. No one and so I should say full disclosure. I've been across this bridge many times. I've been in the tunnel many times on tour in my rock band an Ontario highway four. Oh one is this highway. That's basically the main artery of central Canada and it goes from Windsor Windsor to Toronto and then into Quebec and it's very frustrating Canadian version of an interstate which is to say the thing that is most frustrating about it is that the speed limit is one hundred kilometers an hour the entire distance which is for those of us using imperial weights and measures sixty two miles an hour. And it's just A. It's the fastest anyone who's ever gone in Canada. It's a road from one place to another and it goes. You know you think Ken this. Is this southern part of Ontario. It's where the majority of the population of Canada lives. But you can be on highway four one and drive for hours and just not never see another living soul. Aw but it isn't. It's not quite an interstate in the American sense of in just being like a superhighway. It's sort of more like what we would call a state highway player in in in portions right there are other portions that are built up and it looks like it just ends by an aluminum plant by the river. Does it does and it back in in Toronto in the in the within the city of Toronto a highway four zero one is the busiest road in North America. Heard that yeah. Yeah I've I've been on it. Yeah I mean it's A. It's a true highway there and And A and a big fat one but out in the out in the country. It's just it's just a place the trucks go but the Canadians have been routing 401 and a on the American side. They've been routing I ninety six and I seventy five to ward this this new bridge and building giant plazas and giant access roads to it all the while being sued by Maroon so they can't build the actual bridge right but they are but they're building these sort of what people have to call high waist and nowhere. Meanwhile the still the only way through is through through through poor long-suffering downtown Windsor. He's a trial he's literally a troll with a brisk making everybody answer riddles. And he he you know he is making making They're estimating that the new bridge will make seventy million dollars a day in toll revenue Jeez he's not at not a day not a day seventy million dollars a year. I'm sorry seventy million dollars a day. That would be ludicrous but segment build the bridge. Seventy million dollars didn't tear down in a week. I got my four hundred ninety nine. That's right what the hey. Hey it's like you can't lose. I'm good to go. That's that's so dumb. I can't believe that I said it. But seventy million dollars a year. Is there a completion date or so they have only so there were a lot of lawsuits. There was a lot of There were a lot of just your typical kind of what are we gonNA do about this. Garter snake what are we going to do about. Who's going to own this? The government of Canada and the government of the United States arrived at an agreement. Where Canada would they would? They would join forces to build a bridge. Canada would get the tax revenue from tax revenue from the bridge for the first fifty years after completion. Because they would be putting in you know they. They'd be making a large investment in the construction but the United States had the candy bar concession. You know there was a it was back when you imagine the United States would exist in fifty years. They might want to renegotiate that today So they began construction on the new bridge in two thousand eighteen in the intended Can you know the the the completion date is two thousand twenty four. It's going to be an enormous enormous bridge. It's going to be a twenty eight hundred foot span but it's going to be one of these new style that's the way. Oh yes twenty. Eight hundred foot with. It's a cable stayed bridge so it has that sort of a shape. Giants sort of cable in the middle and then and those are very elegant bridges very very a bridges of their time. Though right I mean fifty years from now. You're going to look back at those cable. Stayed Bridges and say their bill between two thousand five and those were trendy thousand fifteen and they struggled with With what to name the bridge. They've they've sort figured that They were going to call it something like the Detroit. International Commerce a collective and they realized it spelt Dick. You know there were a couple of problems almost like that where where they couldn't settle on what to name it and eventually they decided to name it. The Gordie Howe Memorial Bridge this exclusives like a joke does get the guy that died from the tragically. Hip Memorial Bridge. Sounds like something that I guess. It Unites American Canada right right. 'cause Gordie Howe the tragically hip singer. No that's a different GORD. But I'm just saying it's like a name would choose as a punch line for what a Canadian would name bridge right. Well but the thing about Gordon. How is that although he is a he is like a a He's like a great son of Windsor Canada. He played most of his career for redwings. Detroit Red Wings so both sides can. It's one thing that's the one thing that Detroit candidate can agree on everybody high five themselves all around although yeah sure was great but Gordy Howe Memorial Bridge does seem like it seems like something from. SETV what's interesting right now. Is that by some quirk of of SRO Google ranking. If few put in Detroit bridge into Google search engine. You get the ambassador bridge if you put Detroit bridges the first thing that POPs up is the Gordie Howe Bridge and it pops up like a big like. Would you like to map to hear. You know it has the whole the whole suite suite of Internet Like validation like the Gordy. How are you looking for the Gordy? Howe Bridge even though it does not yet it does not exist and for five years not exist APR aware but they have they have begun? They built the The Entrance Plaza on the Internet as well begun the project. Object of Xing out the Ambassador Bridge and eliminating a eliminating Manuel. Maroons sort of oligarchical. Hold on on commerce in the western sphere. The thing is that they can't take away his two cent discount on gas gas and that includes infrastructure week here on the omnibus. The Ambassador Bridge Entry Zero Three nine dot easy for seven zero five certificate number three six six three four in the omnibus in the unlikely event that social media still still exists. In Your era you can find the archives of our work at Omnibus Project on any platform you can think of John. John was at John Roderick. I was at Ken Jennings. Hopefully that stuff survives to see the completion of the bridge in Fort Four or five years. Yeah five years but it's not a lock for sure made. It's not done until it's done until you until you break that champagne to cut that ribbon also Maroon could I mean memorable Maroon is an old man now but he's he's got a son who's also also knows a bunch of lawyers yet. Let Gordie Howe. I guess the the thing is the Gordie Howe died in two thousand sixteen probably right around the time that they named the bridge. So that's the time of maximum Gordie Howe grief that's in Detroit and in in greater cabinet could've named at the Brian Boitano Bridge but all the Story Co International Plaza. I was I was in volunteer park in Seattle the other day. I reminded that the park was built on the eve of world. War Two but to honor the last veterans of the Spanish American right. Those were the volunteers who am uh. I bet. A lot of cities have volunteer stuff named for the Spanish American war volunteer any any city. That has a Union Park Union Plaza Union station. Those are all named during immediately after the civil war so this warriors store member for obvious reasons bench American kind of thinking this a little nostalgia here for the Spanish. American war is did not did not really pan out. Well cities like Seattle that in eighteen ninety six were just experiencing their first flourish. They're looking for. They're looking for their version of union station right. It seemed a little. They're a little bit late to the party to start calling things you know the General Grant Elementary School. So it's like what. What have you done for me lately? I do like the idea of putting up new statues to general grant or whatever just to to counteract the confederate statues thing. If they won't tear there's down do what do what the government through build the second bridge. That's right more. Northern statues put a statue. Put them on public land in the middle of Atlanta and Memphis and statue. Sherman arrived. It'll savannah facing Robert e Lee across the same just General Sherman with his jacket. It's like the volcano in Vegas. They goes off every our he shoots a flame through generally every hour. We do that he just. He has a like a Confetti Canon. It's like Vegas Vic the big neon cowboy way general. John was on. INSTAGRAM is well On facebook thing. We all deplore. There was one bright bright shining corner of it for the future. Ling's encourage you to look up that facebook group or its analogue on read it you can send us physical artifacts via email. John Basically has a side business.

You don't have to send any of your your junk. I'm good no cans fine You could send US email. That's more convenient way. Like if you want to send us a photograph of your sputnik ship stuff you could do that to the omnibus project. gmail.com really the best way to support this endeavor and the time capsule it provides of knowledge to the people of the future whether is will not know Gordie Howe is would be to donate of your substance. Please please if you can make any kind of financial contribution We would really appreciate that and it would ensure the longevity of the omnibus you can do that Patriot dot com slash omnibus project. We're so grateful for those who have already done so we truly are thank you. We're we're going to start rolling out. Bonus content for our patron donors. And I think we've Benia already happened by the time you hear this Turkey Nice. Yeah that's right. 'cause there's a part of the part of the Omnibus Time Paradox Times. A flat circle I should mention that that Manuel Maroon. Also he owns a wide variety of businesses. And tell me it's a Janus class no. I'm well as far as I know. No but he did for a long period own the Michigan Central Station. The old decaying Railroads Nature Center Detroit. Do you remember it. You've seen it. I've been to that part of town I've ever been in the station. Well you wouldn't have been in. Oh you can't. It's a thirteen storey building. That until recently was completely blown out. All the windows were gone. It was it was crumbling into the ground and ruin bought at at a time when he could i. I went to that station when it was still an operating train station. The first time I went to Detroit one thousand nine hundred eighty six and was traveling by train so I I saw it in its in its crumbling. Decline Maroon bought it. Amtrak moved out in eighty eight. I guess he bought it after that. And he's he's one of these new negligent landlords right. He just let the station fall apart. He owned the the Roosevelt warehouse which was giant old. Beautiful warehouse right in that. That same neighborhood just let it fall completely to ruin. He just recently sold a central station to Ford and Ford is has planned soot a plan. They're not a plant they they're rehabilitating it as you know like a lot of these businesses now getting into real estate because that's really all they have like sears sears. Can't make making a living as a department store. But they own a lot of land drew millions of dollars of condos. There's an Yoga's yoga studios on right. So Ford is Ford has but windows back in the train station but that for people who have been to Detroit that's a real landmark and it's a it's a real symbol of like just the disaster that was Detroit and now I hope the rehabilitation that's happening. There's really telling the jugglers century man Detroit it's where it all happens motor city Future links listen from our vantage point in your distant past you have no idea how long our civilization survived. How long the ambassador bridge lasted until it fell into the ocean? Ma Maroon is almost certainly dead led by the time you hear this. He may have been the last Lebanese person named Manuel. We have no idea we. We can't know we we. We also will be long gone. We'll just be memories. Maybe the Michigan Grand Central Station in Detroit is the world capital now. It may be like Zeppelin docking station. Uh there's no way for us to know but we hope and pray that the catastrophe we fear may never come and that bridge stands to this day and you you can get whatever fuel of your choice. You can get your electric. Your car recharged two cents. Less a kill and by kinder- eggs if the worst comes soon this recording all recording me had been our final word but if providence allows we hope to be back with you soon for another entry the.

"The. Billy, Cunningham, the great American at two o'clock today Governor Mike Von. Come, forward and. Give us a status. He said every every other every Wednesday. We're going to find out the numbers and move things. WHO's remers all over the news media in Cincinnati that one of our local counties probably Hamilton County. It's about to go from red to purple, which is all Hell's breaking loose? Shut things down, which has certainly put a wrinkle in the efforts of many superintendents to have some level of schooling, beginning the end of August, and of course there is a bill now pending in Columbus that would make. The date of February twenty six every day Dr Amy Act Day to celebrate former health commissioner, not being Dr Amy Acton the Columbus dispatch story out this morning, says Amy Act involved from bureaucratic obscurity to superstardom almost overnight, as she took part of into wines, televised briefings on the battle against the pandemic yard signs, bearing her name popped up in front of several homes, young girls dressed up in little white coats and imitated her saying they wanted to be like amy. Not In so much more plus a big story in the inquirer this morning by Jackie bore shirt Jesse bomber Ohio's new cornerstone is heat map was supposed to be more transparent, but many find it very confusing. Including Butler County County. And Clermont County Public Health spokesman. Keith. Roberson told the enquirer quote. Only seven deaths total six hospitalizations the last two weeks. So in the last two weeks, Clermont County has about a quarter of a million residents. There's been six hospitalizations in the last two weeks. Not move them from. Into the red category you're only now is a man of the forefront and covering the story objectively the investigative reporter Jack Windsor of WMF. Mansfield Ohio and Jack Windsor Welcome again to the Bill Cunningham. Show this afternoon Jack. How you doing. I'm sick, fantastic bill. It's always an honor to be with you in the seven hundred W W audience. Thank you for choosing today. Let's talk about Dr and. A very good friend as you know of of Tony Bender and he starting a petition drive in southwest Ohio. Dr Amy. Acting Day named February the twenty six year. Have your finger a little bit on the pulse of the lawmakers think. Larry Householder and bill sites and others are going to enact Dr Amy Acton Day and give everyone a day off February twenty sixth every year. No No I. I think they should enact a what I I like to call Hashtag down. The Don the data that instead of down your mask and on your Kate we should. We should have been diving the data from day one. That's what I think that those to say, but I could be wrong on a lot. Let's talk about this article in the inquire about Ohio's new. Curran Avars heat map was supposed to be transparent. It's confusing. Why is it so confusing to many especially when in Hamlin County, when I talked to docks and those run hospitals, there are no crisis whatsoever. It is normal to be eighty to ninety percent full. They want to be about ninety five percent full, but right now they're not overwhelmed at all. But how many counties on the cost, maybe a two o'clock today we're going to go purple. Explain why it's confusing do. Well, it's confusing I'M GONNA! Give it a little bit of quick context because we started yellow. The CDC has a map based on several factors COVID pneumonia influenza, and how things are trending there, and the CDC actually found for the eleventh straight week that deaths attributed to current virus have declined they actually it below epidemic threshold, and when you look at their map, if you to CDC dot, Gov and you look at their Cova de section. Section what you'll see is that the entire country actually has what's called the minimal activity level, so the the key code isn't spreading with the exception of Florida and Louisiana. They're listed as low, but three headlines were being program to think that Florida is in code purple, and it's not, and that's kind of how this has been teed up to us Look at the health emergency system. Had some major fundamental flaws, and they're leading us back the lockdown and potential mandated mass wearing even outdoors, so it has seven in. Each county, interestingly if the county triggers zero indicators. The can do is yellow, so you can have zero indicators trip. You're not green your yellow, and then it goes from yellow to orange to red to purple, so this Advisory Assistant measures each county on the following indicators, new cases per capita increases in new cases, not congregate cases. Emergency Room visits outpatient visits hospital admissions. ICU that occupancy, so let me just quickly point to. A couple of things no weight. is given to death. On the new match, so. Let's go back to the beginning of your statement, you said the CDC on its website says that the entire country is almost not even an epidemic, much less pandemic. Me Because I think that's important. Because the CDC by checked objective standards, says the deaths every day for the last twenty, one to thirty days have gone down, but the media and I think the government. Especially local governments are drum-beating idea role about the Lai explain how significant is. That's a CD CDC says Ohio's Not Kentucky not in a panic. Significantly significant accent. You know if we're GONNA IF WE'RE GONNA quote the CDC then we ought to follow the CBC. We can't cherry pick information from the CDC for eleven straight weeks or death certificate data reported declining percentages in depth, and so they said look what currently below the of the epidemic threshold, which means that this thing is not the epidemic status. It's not spreading the way that we hear in the press. Conference is right. What we hear is that we have this massive community spread and you know if I had. Half an hour an hour. I'd love to dive into this new advisory system and show you that if you for example, new cases per capita increases in new cases, not congregate cases. If you have a pop up location, or you increase passing at all in your community. Understand you're not testing in congregate settings. People are going out of curiosity, not a sickness, the pop up locations, or if they want to go to the hospital to get deferred care they're increasing their testing outside the congregate living setting. So if you increase testing, you could actually trigger. A three of these indicators right out of the gate and you're you're at an orange level. Now you only need to trigger to other indicators to be read, and when you dive into what's going on in Hamilton and Butler and Clermont. Counties, it's testing and it's ICU and outpatient visits, but when you dive into that, there's a pdf when a county goes into the red. You Click on that that county it'll, it'll pull up. Up A pdf file for you, and that PDF file in and explain a little bit deeper. What's going on in the county? But what's going on in the county? The way that they had explained is really kind of misleading, because you can have eighty percent occupancy, or above in ICU, and they're using that as a trigger so for example I believe Hamilton County. I can pull them out if you WANNA, talk about. Half, my listeners in Hamilton, county, and the other half outside Hamilton, county, but when I talked to real life. Doctors like a Jewish UC Christ they're not in a panic mode. In fact, they'd never been in a panic mode. One point never doubted ten percent occupancy for those two or three months ten percent occupancy, ever losing a million dollars a day and right now they're not even close to where they need to be, and they don't have an influx of covert nineteen patients in any local hospital. Inquire reported that there's no uptick in hospitalizations and the only reason we have more positive testing because people on these pop up locations are going to be tested and their non symptomatic. Right and we've also received reports. Say reports. It's not one or two. It's multiple of people who go to pop up locations. Complete the paperwork and decide you know what I don't WanNa. Wait in line, and then they're contacted later to be pulled that they tested positive so somehow there's this automatic assumption that they're going to test positive until they test negative and they're literally getting indication that you tested positive. They're gonNA wait a minute. I didn't even wait around to test. So that stunning but. When you dive into these pdf files for example, you just talked about intensive care utilization well. Yes, I'm looking at Hamilton County right now. In intensive care utilization it did bump up over eighty percent. Look if I'm a hospital administrator. That's the minimum I. Want my ICU operating. At operating at ninety five percent, because that is expensive equipment, and you want to utilize that equipment to generate revenue that when you look at what's going on with Kobe patients and I see you. It's down around ten percent. Dip Down so I. See you capacity for Kobe patients around ten percent and. So people are scratching their head and going wait a minute if I'm actually generating revenue and profit from my hospital, all of a sudden that that puts me in my county in the red zone potentially and you know the other thing that they're being graded on. Is this seven day average of Kobe related healthcare visits and when you look at that, they break it out by emergency, department and by outpatient. Here's an interesting fact for you. Outpatient can actually include you calling your telehealth doctor, and that's how a health doctor can grade you on several things, the look at the clinical criteria and they'll. They'll look at the laboratory criteria and they'll look at the epidemic epidemiological link so if I call my telehealth doctor and I said look I have a headache. I have a sore throat and you know the telehealth doctor says. What do you have a fever? Yeah, I kind of feel hot. Well, actually the way that it works you. You only have to have to symptoms so if you have a headache and you have a sore throat, or if you have a measured or get this objective fever, if subjective, yeah kind of hot you literally candy diagnosed as as positive so these outpatient visits. Probably of a lot of telehealth visits, a lot of people blinded their their providers, and like you said they're testing a symptomatic, or we also know these tests can pick up antibodies strange. They've also been pulled by the CDC that these tests can actually pick up other Corona viruses AKA the common coal. That's ridiculous. That's ridiculous. Hospitalizations bill in Clermont Hamilton and Butler county. Zero, that's one zero. The last death and Clermont County. Seven six Hamilton was seven Butler was seven three. So, why would the governor two o'clock today? So you know what we gotta move you to Purple? Because thing that Kinda hoping and Cherry picking the data they wanted to find result. Dewine once defined result that we're in a crisis. Why is that true? Why don't we look at the data and say? Let's find the glass half empty. Instead of half full when I talked to docks. If you've had no deaths and the ICU's eighty percent, which is a bit low and of the eighty percent, ten percent or covert nineteen, and the ambulance is aren't reporting with hospitalizations and tell doctors. Chalk chalking up visits as being somehow covert related when they're not. How do you rely upon that data to drive public policy and shut down all the schools? You can't you can't if you increase testing and that testing like we said picks up some crazy things like a dramatic, or it's false positive, and then all of a sudden you have a surge in ICU, and maybe people are increasing their outpatient visits. That's not that's not indicative of spread, but all the sudden. You're in Code Red and you could. You could be going over coke purple, which means you really shouldn't go outside unless you need supply. Look I don't know. I'm wondering if it and I need to dig into this, or are we getting federal cares act. Dollars are are positive tests. Dollars, I mean that would make sense to me, but here's something that I think is is a huge issue to me. The biggest issue is anxiety and it's it's causing businesses, and all of us to be on edge and afraid that our county might be targeted the Cleveland Clinic. Just released a study outlining the rise and what they're calling broken heart syndrome caused by increased stress of the coronavirus. Pandemic people are dying from stress and anxiety, and I heard a stunning report over the weekend about in Ohio educator who took his own life because of the pressure associated with full mandates and Co that this is why I'm so passionate about the accuracy and the transparency of this information and I cannot. In good conscience, look at Clermont. Hamilton Butler zero hospitalization and zero deaths and say you know what we need to math and we need we need to. We need to shelter in place. It makes zero sense. It's scaring the hell out of people. It is in fact talks about the dangers of a kid, not being in school, which means they're in the community which means. means. They're playing baseball soccer. They're playing with other kids. Their playgrounds going crazy. It's not as if kids not in school. They're going to be in bubble. Wrap under a bed somewhere. They're going to be living their life and swimming. Whatever they're GONNA do so. The safest place to be is in school. The most risky place to be in the community were kids are getting. You belong in school I'm looking at the inquirer article today, but they're counting. What about the increase they've had an increase of two emergency room visits. Kobe nineteen related per day. Think about that and Butler county what which has about three hundred and fifty thousand people. There's to cove it related visits a day to the ER and no deaths in the past ten days, so that that moves them up dot almost a crisis, house pot. Jack Jack this stupid. Stupid. Stupid and if literally it's literally killing people the anxiety and the stress listed is covert real. Is it a health emergency outside of nursing homes now? I mean the data. The data in the sciences crystal clear on that it looked our kids. During this this this epidemic there were pandemic certified schools in the State of Ohio Eleven, hundred and thirty of them that were opened, and kids were going their kids from families whose parents are healthcare providers frontline workers working at these big box stores. You know what didn't happen. They weren't spreading. Because kids aren't spreading, they don't tell. Tell that a whole lot. There wasn't an outbreak. They're all over Europe, and look what happened there. They send their kids back to school. There was not an outbreak and you know when we talk about masking schools, kids are not gonNa kiss her not going to pass this virus by walking in the hallways. They don't need to be masked up in the hallways and if we want to really solve this issue if there are teachers who are in the older age. Age category that feel at risk. Okay, Great! Here's what you do you you them in through some sort of web axe, and you get somebody there to manage the classroom. Let the kids go and engage in the socialization and engage in the live learning environments. The the American Society of Pediatrics already said. That's what needs to happen and we've gotTA. Stop turning a blind eye to what this is going to do to our their kids, our kids and their ability to learn. Learn I'm a single parent I love having my daughter home, but guess what when I have to work fulltime, and I have to try to help her at seven years old. Step through the curriculum and do it the right way. That's not working, and that's not going to work for people. If this was killing, you know two million people I would get an in the united. States is not and we're making decisions based on emotion anecdotal. What is and it's crushing us. Lastly Jack Windsor when you said you went over this point quickly, but it's so valuable that in March April and May one critical workers had to use healthcare, and they had to put tens of thousands of their children together and healthcare. All those experiences resulted in no transmission from those children and fact there's not been one school child in Ohio between the ages of six years old and twenty five that have died covert nineteen I listened to some. Some of the shows that are objective, Dr Atlas was on with Martha McCallum last night. Saying it is absurd what we're doing to the children. If you care about children in their lives, the children belong in school for all kinds of psychological educational and medical reasons, and then if someone can't be there, because of their age or immune status ways of working around that, but he's the schools exist to educate children. They don't exist for teachers to teach. Custodians to clean cleanup or cafeteria workers have served string beans. The schools exist for the children and the children's interest must be paramount everything else Jack. Windsor I'm getting a note here. The possibly the governor is not going to be on till Thursday at two o'clock, and that's even more concerning to me because if he pops up Thursday two o'clock, and says Hamilton County is now purple. All Hell's going to break loose, but Jack once again Jack. Jack Windsor, WMF, and Mansfield, thank you be the voice crying in the Wilderness. We do not have a public health crisis unless you listen to the media, in which case all hell's about to break loose in reality, the health crisis is in nursing homes and things of that character. Let the American people work. Let the kids learn everyone else. Protect themselves necessary. Jack Windsor Good. Luck to you. Thanks for coming on again and God. Bless America thank you. God. Bless you God bless America. Thank you Jack Windsor. That makes a lot of sense. Your reaction now at five, one, three, seven, four, nine, seven, thousand Bill Cunningham Newsradio seven hundred wwl w. Billy Cunningham I want to get your involvement in this because The next two days are going to be critical in Hamilton. Butler Clermont, and maybe Warren County. To make sure that we do not go into a purple status. A purple status would mean that were shutdown that schools are not going to open at all and all going to have shelter in place orders put on to us again by Governor Mike Dewine, and July sixteenth. and. I know they listen in Columbus. Is the one radio station in Ohio? That is heard throughout Ohio Kentucky and Indiana. It's hard everywhere, and it's critical that we communicate to our so called leaders in Columbus that we're not in the healthcare crisis in. Cincinnati, unless you're in a nursing home or a penitentiary or prison or Warren Correctional, institution or the Clermont County jail. We're not. We're not in a crisis. I want to share with you some. Some facts and we have mark and Donald with three lines open, five, one, three, seven, four, nine, seven thousand tomorrow. We're going to have on Denise Treehouse to talk about him. In a county in specifics in every office holder I got up this morning, and spoke to four five in northern Kentucky Southwest Ohio I spoke to one in Butler County Not Richard K Jones one in Warren County one in. Clermont County and two and Hamlin County. There's a sense here on the ground. That the governor is about to make a dramatic move on Thursday, a sense, not a belief, a sense, even know the politicians I speak to speak to healthcare leaders at UC. Christ, Jewish mercy and. On a regular basis Bethesda on a regular basis because every day they get numbers from the hospitals. Who say okay. WHO's in your emergency room? What what are they marked into? And do have debts. And what did they die of? And how many tests do we have? I got another test from a good friend of mine. WHO said that? She had two employees who had lined up in order to be tested. They decided not to go through with it because time. This is what she said to me. One of my employees and others were in a long line to get tested. They left the line. But did not get tested. Having given their information two days later, they got phone calls. They were positive and they didn't get tested. There's mistakes everywhere in this regard, but here's some facts. I just googled many. Americans are in school and the answer is according to Google Eighty, two million. We're a nation of three hundred and thirty five million people. We have anywhere between seventy and eighty million in school. How important to school academically educationally? Socialization Hunger Programs Sexual Abuse Discovery Programs counseling programs schools important especially. Especially in dysfunctional parts of urban areas and poor rural areas. School is awfully important, so we prioritize school by spending most of our civil dollars in Ohio Kentucky Indiana on schools, whether it's a grade school middle school high school, Technical School Colleges, an Ku UK Louisville. State Xavier UC INDIANA. We spend billions of dollars every year in school because that's how important it is. So when you have eighty million schoolchildren eighty million. I looked at the CDC website. Right here! Our children at risk. By going to school, you heard John. Jack Windsor talk about the fact in March? April May and June when there were thousands and thousands of school age children in day care because their parents were mandated workers, they were essential and there was no outbreak. There were no deaths. There was no transmission. It didn't happen. This is a virus that is very lethal. If you're frail, elderly or compromise, it is a virus that is not very lethal at all to children. So in your own mind, according to the Centers for disease, control and Prevention. As of July tenth. July tenth which was what Friday close of Business Friday July the tenth. How many school age children in the United States of America? Didigova nineteen and the whole country. Eighty two million is the population of those in school. The answer is. Thirty. Not Thirty thousand. Three hundred thousand. Not, thirty million I said thirty. And! Majority of those were somehow compromised immunities because of cancer whatever it might be, but the total number is thirty under the age of fifteen and a typical year in America two hundred die of the flu in school, two, hundred, four, hundred, thirty, six, sadly killed themselves, six, hundred and twenty-five or homicide victims, and about forty, two hundred from unintentional deaths such as drowning. In addition to that, there's about six thousand who die in car accidents. So, we're for hitting kids going. Swimming. We're not, prohibiting kids from getting into cars. But we're going to prohibit kids going to school on school. Age Children Cove Nineteen. Thirty. Thirty. And the state of Ohio. Zero school children have died between the ages of six years old and twenty five zero. And now I know what you're thinking. Of course we have full lines. We're going to get. Back I have no guess schedule today with match time and likes quite a bit. So, she would me. I hear you now, saying well. What about the teachers? What about the cafeteria? Workers? What about the janitors? What about the social workers? Yes, that's that's important. A teacher's life is important I think Roger Fortin Professor Roger Fortin. Xavier how important he wasn't my life. I think about Jerry would todd history? My basketball coach deer park. How important real important I think about Mr Schaffer deer park high school. What a great guy I think about Hank. estes at deer park wonderful wonderful I think about Roy Dixon. Psychology teacher and I just love that guy teachers so important I. Think About Sister Monika An. And at Xavier I think about Father Bergemann and Father Schmidt and Father Bench in Father O'Connor teachers leaders very important to me. Teachers are important. But schools exist not to teach. Schools exist for children. Hate to use the term for the children s liberal, but this goes exists for the children eighty million of them when they are not at Risk Cova thousand nine hundred. Won't say zero, but the risk is zero point zero zero zero one. Much more likely to die on the way to school than in school covert nineteen. Can we get it through our thick skulls that children are not at risk of catching covert nineteen in school, and for those who are at risk, sixty percent of the teachers earn age of forty. If you're at risk if you're over fifty five sixty years old. You have to have special needs met I agree. Find a way to do it. Talk to your principles. Talk to the, Superintendent Guess what there's a way doing, but the function of schools is not to serve string beans, or not to clean up in the hallway or not. The teachers to teach the purpose of schools is to educate eighty million Americans. Go children and they need to be in school. To give me an example. In Chicago of covert nineteen. A total and the last six months of Chicago age school children between the age of six twenty to a total of two who have died a covert nineteen, both were immunity suppress but to. which is sadly happening every weekend through homicides in Chicago, so can we say and put it? NEON lights on every billboard school children are not at risk of catching and dying of covert nineteen. And for those of us who come in contact with school children, we need to protect ourselves as adults. Because right now I see kids playing soccer pickup games. I see kids caddying. I see kids landscaping. high-school boys that are getting ready for football lifting weights. They're living their lives, and if you check with those between the ages of about eight twenty two. They don't have any sense. There's a crisis going on at all. They ignore this stuff completely. The kids need to be in school. And if there are special needs of older Americans who work in and around the school, talk to the principal talk to the school board talked to the Superintendent and say these are my particular needs. How do we accommodate me so I can interact with the reason the school exist. Muller Highschool exist not for the teachers or the coaches. The exists for the students that that's the purpose of Muller, highschool or Covington Catholic or Lakota or Mason. That's the purpose is for the school children. Our Lady of victory exists because of the children. And doesn't exist because of the teachers. And, whether it's a she old or a amassed for the older folks whatever it is. Okay Now before I take calls one last thought. If you're not in a nursing home in the state of Ohio. which is thank God most of us. Ninety nine percent of us are not a nursing homes in the state of Ohio. If you're not in a nursing home in the state of Ohio. The fatality rate of ohioans is less than one hundredth of one percent. I'm talking about a number. Roughly three thousand ohioans died seventy percent in nursing homes that means about eight or nine hundred have died in the general population and the state of Ohio. Including Zero Schoolchildren divide that number by twelve million for easy figuring. Is Eleven point seven million supposedly highlands. It is under one hundredth of one percent, and the general population have died I, said under one hundredth of one percent. Clermont. County spokesman Keith. Robinson told the enquirer on Friday quote. Only seven deaths total so since March plasma counting has said seven total deaths seven and six months. Half of those nursing homes, so I assume three or four and the general population. Clermont County's population I just looked it up is. I'll give you a minute. It's about two hundred and thirty five thousand. So only seven deaths total in Plymouth County, and in the past two weeks a total of six hospitalizations Paradis Butler County is three hundred eighty five thousand residents. Clermont County is two hundred and six thousand Warren County is two hundred, thirty, five thousand, so the total of Butler, Clermont and Warren County is equal to Hamilton, county, which is eight, hundred, some thousand so Clermont County has gone into the red category. Causing some to leave Clermont County. But in the last six months, and a population of two, hundred, six, thousand in Clermont, county seven deaths and the past two weeks six hospitalizations. Which resulted in death? The governor put Clermont County and the red category. We're now read. And, Keith Robinson Clermont County cannot figure out. How in the hell do they go to read? It's impossible. Impossible. Not, talk about Butler county. Increase in Butler county small increase. They have to Cova. Nineteen. Hospitalizations per day. which is well less than zero point zero one percent of Butler county. Population Bother County is almost four hundred thousand residents throwing eighty-five thousand. Is that a health care crisis. Honestly what are we talking? Have we lost our frigging collective minds? How can anyone seriously say except in nursing homes that we're in a healthcare crisis, lastly before I go to your calls, we've got thousands on hold now. The media is engorged with the idea of Florida Texas Arizona and fact now ohioans. CanNot Travel to New York. Get off the plane until you're quarantine for up to fourteen days. I made two hundred trips to Laguardia, imagine getting off a plane showing your papers to state officials and telling you guess what you're quarantine for fourteen days. What where am I teamed? How do I get there? I don't know your quarantine. One of my going to be in bubble wrap put into stasis somewhere. If you take Florida. which has a population? Florida of twenty million. Twenty Million Floridians. There's about forty three hundred. Forty, three, hundred and Florida. New York State is thirty. Three, thousand. Eight Times Florida. Texas is thirty two hundred. Texas has thirty million residents thirty million. Texas has three thousand two hundred deaths Arizona as two thousand two hundred tests if you take Florida. And Texas and Arizona. That is less than one third of the fatality rate in New York less than one third, but the media is convincing all of us. That were about to die and that Florida. And Texas and Arizona is about the worst Ohio has about thirty one hundred deaths I. It's about three thousand and seventy five call at thirty one hundred seventy percent nursing homes that means about thirty percent of three. It's about nine hundred, nine hundred total high winds have died in six months, which is less than one hundredth of one percent and zero in the schools. have. We lost our minds. Unequipped talking. I want to hear from you. This is totally ridiculous. We go from yellow. Orange to red. To purple, maybe on Thursday, there's nothing from the governor until Thursday to and he's calling around the public officials, and this part of the state, getting more information, and from what I speak to them. Names not used. They are very concerned that one or two counties in southwest Ohio is going to go purple on Thursday at two o'clock. Which means were shutdown, swimming pools indoor dining bowling alleys. God knows what else schools of course schools. No school can open. And how long can we be there and as Jack Windsor just said. There's no objective measurement to go from yellow to orange to red to purple. How in the World Does Clermont County? Go into the red category when in six months. They've had a total of seven deaths, most nursing homes and six hospitalizations and the last two weeks and they're read. You can't avoid it. The governor will do whatever the governor wants to do. And then there's lawsuits to be filed by others. I had on Maurice Thompson last. Friday get him on again then the court say he can't do it. But then it's months down the road. It gets appealed in the meantime here. We're in the middle of July. The children must go back to school. They are not at risk. On I'm done talking I, WanNa hear from. You may have Markan. Aubrey Marian Jason Donald. Many others have aligned becomes available, five, one, three, seven, four, nine, seven thousand. Can we deliver a message to the powers that be in Frankfurt? Frankfurt and Columbus? That were not sheep were not mushrooms living in the dark fed crap. We wanted to get about our lives. We understand the risk. The Great American wears a mask all the time. I wash my hands. I void crowds I. Don't like people at a nice hamburger last night in new town, but some good people but and everyone had a mask on, but you gotta eat a hamburger gonNA. Take your mask off right. Warren in everyone on looking eighty percent compliance. I'd bet this more than eighty percent I feel bad, not having a mask on broadcasting, but nobody's around me. I don't I. Don't like people I don't get around people but my children. My Grandchild's got to be punished when they're not at risk for some purpose. That I can't figure out. Let Your Voice. Be heard next on news radio seven hundred W automobile. Our fallen. Talk At. The, At the door they found. The lease lovell. Tell. Bad Law. Governor shut us down again on Thursday. That this is something we cannot recover from for months, and this things worse than having a shutdown, which is death, disease, pestilence and sorrow. We gotta get back to work I have a text from a friend of mine. Said knows the coins are gone. Everyone has to use credit cards, and what you're going to be tracked constantly, and then whether or not there's only a rumors sometimes knowing mike the way I. You know call ahead of time to give a heads up to certain elected leaders as to what's coming. He tends not to do it because it gets leaked out immediately, so he wants to it all at once. How in the. World Can Clermont County. And Hamilton County and Butler county be read based upon the numbers that we have tomorrow. I'M GONNA have on Denise, Tree House, but the governor's GonNa come on at two o'clock on Thursday normally it was Tuesday and Thursday but. which leads some to speculate. It's only speculation. He's not coming on today because Thursday at to you know, give us the numbers from Wednesday and if the numbers are up four hundred percent. From to the nine more than four hundred percent. That's an excuse to do something. So let's go to the calls. And once again. In Clermont County? which is now read, and the last six months had a total of seven deaths and six hospitalizations and the last two weeks. And! They're read. Let's go to call. Says I promise I'm done babbling. I WanNa hear from you. And I knowing politics the way I do the main reason. These things are happening. As whether it's Bashir or holcomb, but especially dewine his approval ratings are like eighty percent back, and they tracked this every two or three days. So as long as you believe. That the governor is keeping you safe by enacting these orders and likely to continue, but as facts so indicating the way to keep your kids safe is never permit them to ride in a car. Never permit them to go swimming. Never permit them play soccer, baseball, football, or basketball, because according to the Centers for Disease Control. And the last six months of eighty two million children in school thirty. Have died of covert nineteen thirty. while. Six hundred twenty-five inman homicide victims and forty, two hundred have died of unintentional deaths such as drowning. Keep him out of the pools. Give him out of the cars. Keep them in bubble. Wrap under your bed in which case they're gonNA live a long life like a mushroom living in the dark fed crap. Life is risky, but children are not addressed if the administrators. Teachers Cafeteria Workers Janitorial staff staffer. They're at risk. Talk to the principal talk to the Superintendent Talk to the school board by coming up with a plan to protect you and I'm not diminishing your life. It's important especially to you and your husband or your wife and kids. You'RE GONNA be forty four years old and be compromise immunity. Why and you need some help? Talk to the principal, but the function of school is for the children to learn is not for you to teach and. And Not for you to clean the hallway, and not for you to serve cafeteria food. The purpose of school is for the eighty two million children that have been denied in education now going on six months, and it must, the madness must stop now. Let's go all right. Matt make sure I quit talking now. That's the key. Make sure quit talking. Let's go to mark. Audrey and Marianne and Jason There'll be the first four. I want everyone in the tri-state wants to hear from you. You can't travel from CG. Laguardia without being quarantined for fourteen days. Now statistically. Hairs you get these numbers at realclearpolitics Dot Com roll down the list. New York has had thirty three thousand deaths New York State Ohio. One tenth at three thousand, but we're quarantine. We're going to New York, but they're not quarantine coming here. Kentucky has said six hundred and thirty deaths six hundred thirty. and. New, York thirty, three thousand. Is quit talking. Let's hear from you got mark Audrey. You've got mail pissed off now. Let's go to mark on the cell phone mark. You're on the Bill Cunningham Show Marco head. Hey this is This might even piss you off a little more. I have a mother. Who is? Ninety two years old. Lance at. Ten. She has oh. I think one hundred six grandkids now. How many! Hundred six. Now there are some grey and she will possibly see great great. Wow. That's wonderful. when this all started, we Or for your concern, we went to her mom. You know you're at the highest risk you can't. You can't go out. Wear a mask. You GotTa do this. You got to do that. We can't come and see yeah. She looked at me. To you, I'm the. I'm the youngest of the ten. She said some here an idiot. This is all phony. It's hype. I said what are you talking about? She said this is ridiculous. She said let me tell you something. I've lived through scarlet fever. I've lived through. Tuberculosis have lived through the measles mumps. Oppression more war to and when I was a young girl, pneumonia was pretty much a death. And Polio all those the polling. Actually they throw at all. She said never one. Did, we get laid down. It quit working. quit living life now not. Exactly keep talking marquee going. She said, are you? And your brothers and sisters and allow your children. and become a third world country. Because you're afraid to go outside in the scientists, she said my whole life. They've been wrong. You mean mass destruction in Iraq didn't happen. No. The point is mark your. Your mother is a perfect example of what made America Great. What we have now are graduates of snowflake university. And they look around the world to find something that justifies their view, which is often wrong, but if you've spent your life looking for police, brutality and someone videotapes, something, and then show it to you. You'll go nuts, and they live in a world now in which the government must care for all your needs, and if the government's not there to do it, we will stop our feet. Protest threw bricks through windows. Until we get our way, and if we don't get our way enough, we'll keep doing it and breaking the law until the lawmakers changed the law to the way I wanted to be. This is not even close to what happened on those. Those other crises you discussed, and at no point in American history, the government tell people stay home and don't work because I know best for you. You and I are about the same age I would assume, and I wear a mask and wash my hands i. stay out of crowds. I'm in that category but I want everyone else not at risk to live their lives to get out and swim and dance and enjoy themselves. Go play golf play soccer tennis. Get ready for school. Go live in a dorm deal. What you're GonNa, do live your life, and if this generation of Americans was alive award war to would all be speaking German at this point. That's exactly what my mother said. That's exactly what she said she's said. You know what you gotta suck it up. You gotTA. Do if I if I have to die then I. Guess it's my time absolutely that. What really made her mad is when they compared this on the news to it's this this generation as World War. Come on I mean he said Jantar picky. Million people died in World War Two. I've been more than seventy. Five million and America America fought to simultaneous ward wars within about a forty month period, and won both and came home, and both the greatest economy in the world at the snowflake generation was in charge. Then we'd be speaking Germany. East of the Mississippi and Japanese west of the Mississippi. We wouldn't have country at all. People are scared to death including rocky boy man. He's scared to death. No question. Your your your point on I'm proud to listen to you every day. You give the real statistic. What my mark as far as your mother can you go see your? They let you go in properly gowned and masked with a shield and gloves on. Can you sit there and enjoy the company of your mother yet? She still lives at home gets up well even better shape than I am because she gets up. She moves Iraq Iraq. Iraq Iran you gotta move man and she ought to wear masks around whatever it is. But what would your mother say? Governor Dewine, or who is ordering Clermont County that has had seven deaths and six months and six hospitalizations and two weeks none resulting. What would your mother say to Governor Doin about making Clermont County red? She was del Hams. He sending our kids. Another Great Depression. We had the greatest economy going and he's GonNa. Reverse us all back into another great depression over nothing I mean I know what the disease she knows it. If you're the one that has it absolutely, but but in the general population in Ohio, we have about one thousand deaths over six months, which is less than one hundredth of one percent now what about the other ninety nine point? Nine nine percent can we our lives? The answer might be no. The governor might say on Thursday your shutdown. In which case this economy, which is starting to recover slowly will collapse, and if a collapses there'll be no money to pay for anything. Did the Democrats realized that? Willie I don't think they care I. think that's what they want. What however they can make it look like our president is failing us. On all fronts. Is what they'll do i. mean you when you get. A congresswoman that says that only thieving is, it's okay just because you need some brain. Feeding Saving I. Don't care what you're doing. Saks fifth avenue. Store do they. Sex twice.

And Racist. I said Crusader? You GotTa Muller Highschool Crusaders. He said yeah that's correct. He said Capital University. In Columbus is changing its name from Crusader because it's insensitive to its Muslim students so I said. I don't believe that, so he sends me the story. Columbus Ohio capital. University announced on Monday. It is retiring. It's crusader, nickname and mascot copy. Falling a fifteen month discussion. We believe that the university's nickname and mascot should be a unifying symbol that enhances school, Spirit and pride for all who are affiliated with capital in recent years are nicknames, Magellan's by students and faculty for its connection to the story Crusades. The detailed study found a significant portion of the Capital University family shares this perspective. I think now officially. We've lost our minds.

You're welcome as continue with more remember Dr Amy Acton Day. Which is February the twenty I'm begging February the twenty ninth as whether the automated. Skip it only one every three years us continued Bill Cunningham newsradio seven hundred w Olivia. Billy Cunningham at Kennedy just. Not Talk to him off the air and he was in traffic. You had like eight thousand pounds behind him. So we're GONNA have to He said he's GONNA call back when it gets out of traffic so always good to hear from Kenny of Norway. gives us his eliminating thoughts and expressive fashion. One of the best calls I got I forget. The guys had called me I tonight and this afternoon. And said that ninety two year old mother in the beginning said this was a joke, and that not to go to work and shutdown has never happened before an American history ninety two year old. Nice, she has like one hundred grandchildren and grandchildren, ninety two years old, functioning and home. Instead of we've been through everything depressions Ward Ward Diptheria to. Rheumatoid fever. We've had a polio. We've all the stuff going on. And she can't understand how. It was possible that anybody would say go home. Shut down and don't work. You just don't do that as Americans overcome especially one. This is a problem in nursing homes, and not a problem in the general population. Unless you're at risk of something else like F, you have asthma underlying conditions, maybe a heart valve replacement. You're more at risk than some young healthy stud like Matt Steinman a little bit more, so I wear my masters right here. I got the. I got the alcohol I. I pay attention, but we're GONNA find out not today at too because the governor is going to make an announcement at two o'clock on Thursday. Two o'clock on Thursday about the next step in which counties are GonNa go from red to purple in the room, and it's only a room or not a believe. It's an indication that a county in southwest. Ohio maybe put in the Purple Category, which means everything is shutdown once again, which means the schools can open. That's Thursday to, and I pray to God that doesn't occur because the children are not at risk and schools exist for the children, not for the teachers or the administrators. Or the therapist or the IRS They exist for the students themselves, and as I announced two hours ago, according to the CDC there's about eighty million Americans in school eighty million, actually, the number on Google was eighty, two million call eighty million, and all of that time morning it right here CDC in the last six months there's been thirty children under the age of fifteen thirty died of Covid, nineteen and the typical year about two hundred, the flu, four hundred from suicide, six, hundred and twenty-five from homicide and forty, one hundred from unintentional deaths, including drowning children are not at risk. Let's continue with your calls. Shot on the other side Matt and make sure I. Don't talk. We got. We got Audrey Marianne Jason and your calls next five, one, three, seven, four, nine, seven, thousand, Bill Cunningham, the great, American live return with the reds, newsradio seven hundred. wwl W Cincinnati. Let's continue in your calls. The governor announced the come on today at two o'clock or Wednesday at two o'clock he'll be her Thursday two o'clock, which is raising speculations as to whether it'll be major announcements made about the nine to eleven counties in Ohio, that are red to make them purple. One of course might be Hamilton County so tomorrow. We're going to have on Denise Tree House, the President Hemmer County Commissioner talk about that, and so much more. Let's go back to the calls and I go to Audrey Marianne Jason Lee then many others. Others and first of all audrey, thank you very much for your patience and audrey on a cell phone. Welcome to the Bill Cunningham show and Audrey. How are you? I'm great. How are you bill? Thank you for your patience. Thank you. You're welcome and I thank you for bringing us the truth. We need it right now. And I have to factual stories to tell you about to relatives I have in health care. are hospitals need to be investigated because we're not getting the number their true numbers because one relative told me that There was a man who had tested negative five times for covid yet on his death certificate the Doctor Marks Cove it. And instead of he died of natural causes and have at times, Families Complain, and they were paid us out dollars to keep quiet and audrey. The reason is the federal government will reimburse hospitals thirty nine thousand dollars, if it's a covert nineteen death, and if it's not a covert death, you don't pay when you pay for something you get more of it. When you subsidize, subsidize it or tax, you get less of it I. Know that to be true, and that's what's happening and because that needs to be stopped. They don't need that money for Covid they have everything they need and the other hospital same situation This person was a friend of the relative, and he said that he would be replaced if he didn't put Kobe down is the reason for death? Want to save their job of course I. don't blame that person I. Guess wouldn't falsify an official record of that title win. The hospital's administrator, said look. You have to market that way you you know. They paid for the Ba- band, so they call the tune, and what? Why is it so political? How come the whole system is setup political and then one conservatives call them on it. They accused the Conservatives Republicans of engaging in their behavior right. It's just too political now. They all just WanNa hurt president trump. And we can't get correct information from. The World Health Organization or CDC. And Republican leaders need to stand up. And they need to speak because they want. Our vote doesn't happen much, doesn't Audrey? No, it doesn't doesn't and also I wanted to mention about these mass. Since you were talking about those earlier. This surgical masks that most of us wear the paper. One is supposed to be for in Stir Cheryl environments. And we wear them. Do Grocery everywhere and cloth. Ones are worse because they don't filter anything coming in. They just filter. What's going out? And so they're, they're useless. They look Nice but now the surgical masks. They said you need to turn out. Replace Them every twenty or thirty minutes. Or other non sterile. We're hurting ourselves with keeping all that carbon dioxide, and and not getting fresh air. Tell you story. That rocky told me yesterday about. How is the perception of safety when it, isn't it? He told me the story and I'm sure it's true that. When you're in the middle of the south. Pacific and there's a day off for a ship that what happens is that the sailors men and women they jump into the ocean. They around and every time they do that. They have somebody with a machine gun on the deck, supposedly providing security in case, a shark or a killer whale, or a might manner, ray comes up that you can shoot the shark and so. So why from around? And gives you the perception that you're safe and so end reality. The guy with a machine gun will tell you look the sharks. Come up from the bottom up. They don't they don't circle. Yeah, you're done. But while you're out there, splashing around, you have the perception that you're safe. Reason the masters required. Is because it gives you the perception. You're safe and it's government control of your life, and it's got nothing to do with your own health, because it doesn't protect you at all. Out, so I can. If I in fact I, was I was in a building, and there was a couple and look like a male nurse, female nurse in scrubs with the top of the mask between the lip, and the nose and I'm thinking you know, and and if you don't try it, Audrey going into a place in Ohio or Kentucky not wearing a mask, he'll be shamed into restaurants and will wear a mask until we're ready to eat. Do you. Have to because you want to, you want to help that restaurant. Out Yourself I want to get out and and the governor said last week that if you wear a mask, we're going to get out of this pickle were in. We're going to go back to school now. Let's see what happens on I. Guarantee You that eighty percent or more of the individuals I see out in public facilities are wearing a mask. Unusual now and so we've done what they've asked us to do. Knowing is not going to help us at all, but we submitted ourselves to the authority of the state as a symbol of compliance, and so if this results in more crackdowns when there's not a public health crisis and the general population that will be sick now if I'm if I, or you are in a nursing home and eighty seven years old and bad health, we are at risk and there's. Going on, but in the general population in the Tri State there is no. CARE crisis and the general population, and the the Tristate Ohio is had less than one hundredth of one percent have died of Kobe. If it was one percent by God. Think about that one hundred. I mean. If it was to ever was one percent, we'd be talking about one hundred and twenty thousand deaths. and. We have three thousand. And get the flu and get over it like we do any other flu because. It's less than a seasonal flu. At this point Audrey. They want to convince us that they're in control. They know what they're doing and you better submit. That's why we're wearing a mask. It's not because he's going to protect me or someone else because we don't follow the protocols on mask-wearing. It's something we do, so we don't get yelled out. Let's continue Marianne Jason both have been there for an hour and a half. We've got to get them on and Lee Amy Jennifer and. And many others. Let's go to Marianne Marianne. Welcome to the bill Cunningham show and Marianne please go ahead. Hi, I wanNA know what I feel like. I'm screaming in the wind. What can we do to make dewine? No, we are not happy with the I'm not eighty percent. I am not four dewine. Because he's ruining our economy, he won't let he's not gonNA. Let the kids go back to school. So who do we call? Do, we do you tell us? Marianne the governor, every two or three days runs a poll and he get on that I like to get on the pole and say I. He's got seventy five to eighty percent approval ratings USA. Today ran a poll a week ago. The most popular governor in America is Mike Dewine. So. How do we make him on? I. I used to speak to him. I'M GONNA. We texted back and forth about a week ago, so I'm GonNa make an effort. Between now and Thursday to communicate to him. What is actually happening not in Columbus on Main Street? In Small Town America, which is where and how he got elected everyone. I won't say ninety nine percent everyone I speak to think this is completely overblown. That's exactly what I believe. Can I am seventy eight? I WANNA food. Pantry, I meet people all the time. I am healthy. Why aren't people saying? We're tired of this we have, and I agree with their first caller that ninety two year old woman who she was right. We have laid down and said take US whatever you want. Do to us, and we don't want that. You can imagine if the snowflakes alive today were in charge award war to Oh my God, we'd be dead. Beckons Deutsche Specialty Deutsche. Yes. What happened to America when I look at the polling, the clearly indicates way of extremely popular politicians who cracked down, but on the other trumpet saying wait a minute we can walk and Chew Gum. This is a problem. Let's open society. He is bludgeoned to death and his poll ratings, and like in the forties. When you shut down, your very explained to me how that's popular. It's not and you know what I believe. If we would've stayed open in the very beginning, this would be over with by now. We would all got the heard virus or whatever they call it an. We'll be back to life again this people. There's too many people that are afraid and I've not afraid I is ridiculous. Marianne at some point we'll have an expiration date. And when the expiration date comes, it's over hopefully. Meet our maker in a positive fashion. But between now and that date I, WanNa live my life as a great American I wanNA. Play Golf. I'm going to go out to dinner on a week. My friends I WANNA Walk I. WanNa Watch sporting events gonNA live I don't want exist. I WANNA live. And right now one third one half of us do not wanna live their life. They're waiting. At death's door to enter. And I wanNA live my life. Let's continue now. We don't stop. We simply continue got Jason Lee Amy than many others Jason First of all. Thank you for your patience and thank you for coming on the bill. Cunningham. Show and Jason Go ahead. Hey Bill. Thanks. A Lot the question I have for you and I think the question that I think all of Ohio wants answered is who is paying the band. That's playing the song. The wine is dancing to Dr NBA. Might, soon have her own day. I heard and that But. Who is who is? Who is the wine actually listening to fix you know and we know that the bachelorette giving out are facts are facts. They're incontrovertible. Nobody's dying in math. With this, so who is he who is telling me telling him to shut everything down jet Jason if we lived at a time. One hundred years ago the Spanish flu. Killed about six hundred seventy five thousand Americans and today's numbers out would be two point two million, so if we actually had two point, two million dead Americans and ten times that number and hospitals, which is twenty million. It would be time to shut down our society. I get it, but when we live in a combat. I bought in at the beginning. I did, too. I, I was given the numbers I was spoken to I was in. Florida was told to get back home. I was given a special pass for for the road blocks. That were coming and I said Oh my God, this is it and when it did not happen, and when people paid attention and the numbers to flatten the curve did not occur because there was no curve. We in the Mid West did not have a curve tube flattened. We were told eighty. Dead Ohioans, seventy, thousand dead hoosiers and Kentuckians, where we're going to have one hundred and fifty thousand dead, Tristate staters my that Oh my God hundred fifty thousand thousand people dead. It is time to shut up no your role, shut your mouth and listen after about a month of that I said now wait a minute. You told US AIMEE ACTON said on March. Twenty Second March twenty second. She said there were one hundred thousand infected ohioans as she spoke in every six days. Dot number doubles so by May first. We were going to have eight million infected ohioans, which means there would be. Be Eighty thousand dead. There'd be eight hundred thousand in the hospital and eight million infected I'm going Oh Jesus Mary and Joseph I better go and light a candle. Because if this happens, we're done and so some time around the first of May and listen to me for the last several months I, said no wait a minute and I talked to Mike. This is what you said and this is what happened. Why instead it's because of the success of people I said when I talked to those who run UC medical and Christ and try health. They're telling me they're empty. They're laying off. They're laying off ER doctors and a middle of a pandemic. He said that's a symbol of our success. I said Great. So when did we start opening things up? He said slowly, but surely that was in May now here we're in the middle of July and the rumor. Is that something more strident going to happen starting Thursday at two o'clock, and now the high winds can't even fly to New York and get off a plane. Yeah Willie, but weren't. We told that no matter Wendy economy reopens. There will be an increase absolutely. So this is not a surprise. This is nothing to scream about, and then claimed at the sky is falling dish. We knew this what happened this. Out of everything with the copay. This is the one thing that has come true that you know. They said what when you open things up, Hannah King now, but you have these massive protests together with opening up both of them together join to have more infection plus these pop-up sites. There's one this afternoon in Lincoln Heights pop-up spot, and when you have these pop-up sites, you're going to have more infection. It is important to be infected or not, because there's generally absolutely no symptoms you know you got it, but but what's important is hospital hospitalizations. Hospitalizations and I see you. How many people in the inquire has said that there's no increase in hospitalizations no increase and I see you, and in fact we're still under one hundredth of one percent and the general population or Ohio right now Kentucky has fewer deaths from covid nineteen on average and the seasonal flu, but Bashir and and the wind keep acting as if we're in this crisis that exists only in their mind, not in reality, and they keep holding his news conferences as if they're in the middle of a pandemic when they're not. These news conferences. Will they have the guts once after they and I believe that the one will start shutting down, and we'll do the stay at home order again. Well. He have the guts in in his weekly or Daily News conferences to tell us the number of Ohio, and that have lost their jobs for good, not just not just for a little bit, but so many businesses. CanNot whether another shut down and the at all so I I challenge governor to wind to Hammock guts town. Violence lost their job. How many families have author homes? Because he reacted inappropriately and having done something wrong, he cannot now go back in time and apologize. He's got his put his head down and put Clermont County into the red category when the and the last seven months they've had six deaths, and in the last according to the public health records, seven deaths total from covid nineteen in the past six months and six hospitalizations, and the last two weeks none resulting in death, and they're in the red category. There's a disconnect between the words and reality. On newsradio seven hundred wwl view. Dot Com Why Am Scotch on broadcasting? And Rocky Governor, not on today fortunately, but that worries me because he's going to lay the people's elbow down on Thursday Thursday. The BEHAN IS GONNA come out the People's elbow. It's GonNa. Be Andre, the giant with the Hulk Stir. And I. Never Thought Hawks are ever actually beat Andre the giant. Am I right or wrong. Thing people remember. Is that he by slamming I, but if Andrei wanted to fight? It was over I would take him against a grizzly bear. Now you have papers? Facts segment deals with poetry. You have a problem in your community. You're probably wall. Thank you hit the hit this again. From rocky boy meets buddy. If you don't think you have a problem in your community, you're probably wrong, so if you don't think you have a problem, you're wrong. So what are the facts? I'm just trying to understand everything here of why Hamlin County, let's say is potentially entering the purple right purple my way, so you know the criteria right there seven. Through. Who voted on this criteria Matt Steinman. Past Tony Bender Tony Bender so Y-. Every single one seven is I'm looking at here. Have to do with cases has to do with deaths. Cases and hop pop testing is a big deal. You get more of those automatically you get. Five of the set criteria number five sustained increase in outpatient visits, the data the set looks at the number of people visiting outpatient settings, including telehealth appointments with suspected or confirmed Kobe one, thousand, nine, hundred suspected, or can so I I have like favorite kind of look like you may have it so boom. That goes into. into Saturday how many thousands of bread counts number? Four counts sustained increase in your er data will show us the trend in a number of people who visit an emergency department cove, nineteenth symptoms or a Kobe diagnosis as a result of the visits, he could go to get your tonsils out and before they do. Hey, let's get covered pests. Your show news sums boom positive cover tests your added to the list analyst. County and the last ten days have had five or six hospitalizations, and therefore they've gone up. Four hundred percent hang counties at seven hundred ninety nine total hospitalization. That's total since February. Seven so it's one hundred a month. Yes, but we have two thousand five hundred fifty seven beds account. We Have Bethesda Christ good. Samaritan Jewish hospital. Mercy Anderson Mercy Health West mercy handling. Try Health and University of Cincinnati as up to two thousand, five hundred and fifty seven beds, twenty, five hundred, and it gets about like eighty a day. But, even if all all of them haven't at once, we would still have what is that over? Seventeen hundred available beds. Still you're standing any this shirt I. Don't think he is go ahead. Tell me to crisis. Three thousand deaths out of twelve million people seventy percent of nursing homes in the general population. You call it one thousand deaths, that's under one hundredth of one percent in Ohio of the three thousand sixty four deaths eighty-two had been under fifty. That's around percent eighty, two under fifty, hundred fifty. You understand that say yeah. I don't think seventy. It's two thousand and three hundred and sixty to seventy eight percent segment. percent of the House deaths have been seventy plus. We shut down school shutdown nursing homes. Schools and how many children in America feel six point six million? From K. through high school and then add what like. Twenty twenty twenty minutes. About so, how about just K. through high school? That's an America's about fifty. Six million of the fifty six million I assume half have a Kobe nineteen. No no absolutely enough. How many of added so from five to twenty four five to twenty, forty, two, thousand four, there have been one hundred seventy deaths of school aged kids k. through college. There's been one hundred and seventy th, and by the way Ben numbers been consistent for about two weeks. So it's fair to say it is under zero point zero zero something. They're not at risk there's. Bad and it smelled Jackie Yeah. So you saw California. They're gonNA shut down yeah. Down shut it down so of the nine million kids under age eighteen, nine million under eighteen California California, how many died from Cohen I would assume four and a half million. Snow Zero Zero so when? You know they serve like a million million half. Students shunned no zero zero. Zero. I'm watching. MSNBC also known as MS ESPN this morning. And they have a reporter out in front of the sewage treatment plant in Phoenix Arizona, and behind this female reporter. Quite attractive I might add is a VAT. Looks like circulating poop and she did a stand up, saying they can tell how much infection there is by analyzing the poop in the sewer system. Would you? Would you like to have that Gig? Wait so so in order to test me. They gotta stick a Q. Tip like all the way up into my brain in order to determine. If I got an accurate mortgage, check your you know what come on I'm just telling you. I'm watching this and behind her was. A Little semi droplet gets on someone cove nineteen, but to get tested I got sick. A Q. Tip always into my skull out the top of your head, and back in you gotTA. About this right for mortar Demi Moore I don't deal with facts. Go ahead, says you understand any of this, so this is in Florida Florida Department of Health. And all their positive They're confirmed cases like Friday. It was ten, thousand, three hundred. Saturday was a max of any state fifteen, thousand, three hundred, so news agency down there Fox thirty five is looking in this. The population has has everyone's got got hair grown out of their eyeballs well, they looked into some of these. These places specific testing locations in. Diagnostics right just is in some county in Florida it was reporting eight percent of their tests were back came back as positive impossible, so they dug a little bit, and it turned out that that actually isn't. What happened was only nine point four percent, so they had the decimal point moved in the Orlando. Veterans Affairs Medical Center originally said they had seventy six percent positively. They dug into start asking you questions and they admitted it was actually six percent. Why would they admit to lies? Then one caught changing because of the green lettuce or salvation. Get paid, yes. Well might dewine say Thursday at two o'clock. Hamilton County. You're in the purple. They can't. It'd be anarchy. With pitchfork. Can't physically can't do it. According to Larry Householder as long as his approval, ratings are eighty percent. He's not changing. How many polls even in your life have you been asked? Were approval rating for the governor not yet. Might Happen, I know no I said. Are you often pulled? Now. You know what we're talking about. No. Now. Why are we the mask? I had another expert. The mask may protect someone else. If you're infected, it doesn't protect you from catching it from somebody. And secondly you got to follow all the protocols on mask handling mass disposal. You can't wear the same mass more than like three hours. It's got to be washed out every night. It's got to be dried and so if you use it so. So it has nothing to do with public safety everything to do with submission to authority has got nothing to do with keeping you safe for your wife. Say for your kids as to do with you. Understanding I'm in charge, and you're not the image of safety I told you the story. Yes, tell the story about the separate, so my buddy is a naval academy cyclists. You might understand this. And again this has to do with safety versus that perception of safety so is in the naval. Academy and he's on a submarine right, and they go out way out in the middle, the alantic ocean cassie see land for hundreds of thousands of miles right so they come to the top of the water there and they allow them to go swim. Sailor nor jump out swimming. Will they put someone on the deck with an M16 right? In That person at say. Maybe that's a guy from Saint Louis. Might be the guys say. He'll be arrested, so they gotta go up there with M16 his job is to. A shark comes to shoot the shark. Okay, so my buddy and other swim round. Great Time we'll protect them back on the submarine. How long you've been doing about twenty years ago, so in twenty years. How many sharks have you shot or even? He goes none he goes. If a shark comes to attack you, it's GonNa come underneath the water. I won't even see. We've bitten half because I'm just here to make you feel safe. act. The image of safety in the perfect announcing safest isn't safety important. Don't you want not drive a car? Not Jumping Swimming Pool. What played golf? You must be hidden ahead. Why go bowling I mean match diamonds a great bowler, but every now and then he throws out his shoulder and can't bowl I. isn't it better to stay home in the closet? Get in bubble wrap and do nothing.

Guam bars and no. Have you seen with? Teenage boys are doing now. Basketball baseball soccer swimming there camping. They're living life and their with others like themselves.

A surprise royal wedding for Princess Beatrice!
"Hello everyone and welcome back to the episode the one best place to come and get your oil news and analysis, and what to find a we've gathered here for the sun is out in London. I've got Maggie ABC. News Foreign correspondent right next to me how you doing. I'm good. I'm good I feel like we've got some good news to talk about today. We've got a royal wedding possibly. Busy this last, ever royal wedding. It just hit me. Wow, is it really who's left? Well I guess I. Guess We know the Archie Someday. Straight. Ahead. That's very far into the flags. We'll still be kicking it. But yes we will be talking about the wedding between Princess. Beatrice and Edward to pelley multi place today in Windsor. We have quite a lot of needs to get through this week. Captain Tom, more just will received his knighthood from Queen. We were just cooing over the footage. Normal, and of course we have news from across the pond. Megan. The Duchess of Sussex spoke to young girls during the girl up summits earlier this week. for Quentin empowering speech will be taking a look that the Duchess of Cambridge visited families off the backing and you BBC initiative. Something a little different for her. We also got to hear some behind the scenes. Details on the Cambridge. Kids are home during lockdown and my favorite. My favorite subjects royals on zoom. We'll be taking a look at the Queen's humorous zoom call at the end of the site. That can be a separate podcast royals museum. I feel like they definitely. If they haven't invested in shares in Zoom, the really should have because I. think boosted the profile of the company. It was quite interesting to hear even our own prime minister, praising the this morning for literally keeping the country. going. It's kind of incredible. I mean. How do you and I even use zoom? Never quite skillfully as the. She's really a hauler league. She really is. What great news we had today and unexpected knees because we had the announcement from Buckingham Palace. Any idea this was happening I. I'll have to admit I. Know that going on behind the scenes, though conversations about when and how it will take place, I know that the couple were very mindful that the queen will seem be going off to battle moral the summer and so there was a very small window that they had to work with, but. Like many couples and I have friends in the same boat. You know there are sort of current guidelines in place by the British government on how to have a wedding. If you're going to get married at this time, and a lot of people have been making that decision to wait until next year, but you know this is a young couple who clearly wants to forge ahead with their plans, whatever they may be and they won't do that as husband and wife, so it was great to see that confirmation from Buckingham Palace that they had gotten married in front of the Queen. Prince Philip Prince Andrew. At a Kovic Secure Wedding with around twenty guests this morning at All Saints Chapel in the Windsor Great Park, which is of course, were burnt. Princess Beatrice and Eugenie grew. It's so good you make that point as well because I think. If this pandemic reminded us of anything, it's that. The day we're all humans whether you'd be royals, or you know some regular person in the US in the UK because like you said so. Many of our friends have had to deal with these issues as well we're. GonNa Postpone our wedding. Are we still going to get married and have maybe a larger partying and ceremony later? What are we going to do and this is a case where you often think. If you're a royal, you can probably get just about anything right and they sort of operated an entire different field of being Cuban for quite some time, but in the case of this I mean you know pandemic? Have borders whether you're a royal or just a regular person, it's still a threat and you still have to abide by those guidelines and so the fact that she's a royal. Beatrice also had to have her wedding with these guidelines. She had also make those hard decisions, but there's so many people are making a round the UK around the US around the world right now, and as you mentioned with really important. No. No she didn't. She followed the guidelines, and a some of them are really specific. There's a lot to consider so some of the things that she had to do just like anyone who would be wanting to have a wedding in the UK right now. You mentioned the numbers. They have to keep it. Small government advises that you keep the number of people to thirty or under for any type of gathering and they acknowledged. Civil ceremonies and things like weddings are very important society, so they encouraged people that if you are going to do this, go ahead with it, but just follow these guidelines, so keep the group small under thirty, but omit. There's tons of little things that you don't think of that. You have to keep in check as well. No obviously social distancing. It's still thing even if what even. Even at wedding, so while they had less than thirty people, all those people were still supposed to say about two meters apart one meter if they absolutely had to, but social distancing was still a requirement, and even for the minister, so the couple can be close. Let's hit the clarify that the couple could hold hands because the government says that's important part of the ceremony. Yeah! They can break the social distancing, but the ministers are supposed to touch them, so he's not supposed to hold the couple's hand. He's not even supposed to touch the couples rings to give to them, you know all of these things are thought of no one's supposed to share things like him, books or or religious books or anything like that known supposed to all be touching objects to sanitize their hands before coming to the wedding sanitize your. Your hands before you know doing things like signing guestbook or signing the register, or if you're having to actually make it official and sign, something is going to be sanitized Gel right next to you, so there's tons of little things that go into this including even trying to monitor how people saying you're not supposed to raise your voice and singing supposed to be kept to a minimum, if not at all, because we know, this spreads the virus so. Again. It is such a joyful day for them I'm so happy. They went forward with it as well just to make sure that they have that bond, and they celebrated people that are close to them, but they definitely had to pay attention to some of these important measures that not only then, but everyone has to pay attention to right now so again, congratulations and I just I I'm impressed. They went through with it. You know with all the sanitation. Sanitation with all the requirements, but it still seems like it was a beautiful day. Absolutely I think one of the really nice things about this is that they were able to do it in front of the Queen and Prince Philip. We know that bitch is really close with the Queen and these. This is a much older couple who are at risk during this pandemic, and but you know we have to remember that that you know the families say. Say Andrew Sarah Ferguson Youzhny Beatrice Eddo. They've all been together at the same home. laundly for the majority of this lockdown period, and the Queen and Prince Philip of course being isolating themselves at Windsor Castle so this is any sort of three miles up the long walk to Windsor. Great Park. So this is against the you know. We talk about the bubble that were announces that have have or extend with other family. Members during lockdown to remain. Remain safe and I would imagine that this is an extension of that, and why we didn't see members of the family such as the Duchess of Cambridge and their children, so they rarely would have kept it very small Of course it's. It's interesting that we haven't actually seen photos of the big day but of course at there is a very good reason for that. I spoke with the pound this morning. He said the because Captain Sa-. Moore was getting his investiture Windsor Castle this afternoon. Beatrice and Eddo didn't want to overshadow his big day, so they're actually releasing their photos the day afterwards, so everyone can have that sort of moment in the spotlight, which I thought was a really sweet gesture. We'll talk a little bit more about that. We'll talk a bit more about that moment in in at the time, but it shows that there's so much to think about you know going back to what you were saying. In terms of following in a caveat, safe guidelines the you know, the royal family is often a family that we can't relate to in many ways, but I think during times of difficulties, particularly a national. National or international crisis such as the pandemic We've really seen the lead by example in the way that they've carried out the work. The the initiatives compensations that they've been having throughout this time through the struggles of eighth had themselves of course Prince Charles very publicly was the only member of the royal family to have had corona virus and recover from it thankfully so. You know this is this is really shows that it affects everyone from every walk of life in in very different ways, but I think it as you say congratulations on. It's great to to see them. Go ahead with this. Otherwise the the wait could be very such a good point. You make two leading by example I think we see a lot of people right now, trying to get back to. To normal life and figuring out how they do it and you know I'm sure so many people want to be having that big party year planning that big wedding, and by the Royal Family doing it this way showing people how it can be done in a safe way, hopefully, that encourages other people also to to do it in a similar way to still be able to celebrate things but follow. Follow the guidelines and do it safe as possible. And of course he took about a big party. The Queen was originally hosting a very large reception for the couple at Buckingham Palace in this was a wedding was going to take place at some time in May. They were going to get married at the Chapel Royal Saint James's panelists with one hundred and fifty guests, friends and family members by their. Their sites. It's obviously very difficult to walk away from something like that something that I'm sure that many people think about for a long time when they're in a happy relationship such as these two, but you know from what I hear from speaking with sources. It was still a beautiful day. really special and I think that smaller number provided a level of intimacy that perhaps they wouldn't have had. If, it was done as eight originally planned. I'm excited to see these photos. Now you will, you will see them soon must have been taken very quickly because the queen although the wedding started at around happened at around eleven o'clock the Queen actually left a little earlier than everyone else. She left eleven forty five am, and headed back to Windsor, Castle, but for a very good reason, because of course she was later presenting knighthood to the one hundred year old NHS fundraising hero, Captain Tom more inside Windsor, castle or inside the grounds of Windsor Castle. Three PM and we just saw the video footage. This video was incredible this for context. I was supposed to be calling omid. Start this podcast. And I was like ten minutes late because I could see the video feed coming in from my office window and I just I sat here are even took out my phone to videotape the video coming in because that's how cute. Oh! It's just such an amazing will make these two incredible people with these storied histories or the Queen and her mid Nineties Kevin Thomas more more than one hundred years old, and to see the two of them together and I think what made it really prominent as well as that because they're practicing social distancing in this investiture was outdoors. It was just the two of them in this big field, and seeing the two of them out. There was just really a moment that was spectacular to. To capture special moment and we actually heard from him just before the the ceremony itself. He tweeted he said it's going to be the most special of days me. I could never have imagined. This would happen to me. Such a huge honor and I'm very much looking forward to meeting, Her Majesty the Queen and that would have been a very special moment. I think they got to spend more time together than they normally would. During a ceremony like this, because of course it is of. Very. Many. Different people receiving at their investitures This is of course in. A ceremony at Windsor Castle and but very much a special occasion, and of course he made news around the world for raising so much money for the National Health Service here believe over forty million dollars in the end and that was after walking hundred laps of his garden in Bedfordshire which feels like such a long time ago. But was actually very recently. Is Incredible, not only what he did, but just imagine own when when you spend your whole life and then. Reached one hundred and the moment you get knighted, you know that's the moment you basically, and it's really motivation to just never give up and keep giving your all and giving it your best, and we maybe people night at one hundred who knows exactly that will be other investitures taking place later this year, but of course as we know those that usually take place at Buckingham Palace and in Edinburgh they have been postponed for the time being so this is really a special occasion that they rolled out the red carpet, literally the him on this big data. Again this video. If you haven't seen it, you need to go watch it. It's it was put a smile on your face. Absolutely now of course across the pond as I said that Sussex that had a very busy week giving one of her first major speeches on a global stage since leaving the Royal Family is working member of the family as she gave an empowering SPEC-. SPEC- young women at the girl up summit, which is an event founded by the UN Foundation, where she spoke to just over forty thousand attendees in something like one hundred and seventy, two different countries talking about the importance of gender equity and female empowerment, and of course, speaking about some of the positive and negative impacts of the Internet pumps, referring to some very experiences. Every day. He make others feel. To speak up ourselves and we have to seek out others struggling to be. Like them I know all. Use your voices. And I also know. That all of you lose your voices compassionate. Compassion doesn't. He shouldn't be always. And it's all around us in Worcestershire. Broaden that healing. The Dolly famously said compassion. He's the radicalism of our time. Compassionate seeing the. Honors and knowing that it's our data. Try to help them. She knew to believe in your sounds. Leaving, what makes you don't be afraid to do what you know? Even. When it's never been done more. People. I think what was really interesting about this was that this was Meghan really being able to talk without any constraints of some of the things might have to bear in mind when writing speech as a working member of the Royal Family I understand that she really spent a long time preparing this speech and you know. Usually we see members of the royal family reading from a very tight script when they grow up onto a stage and unsigned that Megan had bullet points sort of something to refer to, but this was very much something that she spoke from the heart from script about. Over here you to speak to young people in particular. You know this is something that makes us on so many times before and I always love it when I. See Her being able to talk to these these young women who I think really resonate with herself and look up to her, and she really speaks to them on their level as well and talking about things like. Bullying online and how you can find your voice and use your voice specifically online. That's something that's relevant to young people right now so to reach out to them in particular and remind them that they have power. They have this voice. You know you might be young. You might feel like you're oppressed. You don't have a voice, but you do so to hear that coming from someone who? Is a member of the royal family, even though no longer working more ill, but still a member of the royal family that has a lot of power and I'm sure really made a difference to a lot of young women? Absolutely of course the summit, although it was aimed at young girls, it was open to people of all genders and backgrounds I myself slightly older than their target demographic, but I did log in to join some of these speeches of course wheels ahead for Michelle. Obama speaking about women's education and the importance of it. We have from Hillary. Hillary Clinton Megan's friend. Priyanka Chopra gave a Q., and as well so some really great talkers I thought what was great about this was that it was I think Meghan perhaps a little here than we've seen her in the policy. And she spoke about holding the importance of holding people in power accountable make impacts making them feel a little uncomfortable. You know not being afraid to do so of course spoke about the importance of women, lifting each other up and I think that was a lot of praise there for the younger generation generation that is often overlooked by. An older demographic, all sort of dismissed as perhaps not sort of being able to have much impact that she spoke, she said know your generation is one of digital natives new understand. The online world has the power for firm and support as much as it does to harm. and. She really went on to sort of I. Think I wonder She's also referring some experiences. But she spoke about you know we're not meant to be breaking each other down. We're meant to be building each other up so user voice, both on and offline to do just that bill, each other support each other, and that's a good point. You make too I. Mean I think she almost takes it one step further in a sense, not only telling them that they have the power, but that she uses the phrase. Even we need you right now. Humanity desperately needs you so really putting the focus on young people saying it's not even a choice that this is something that you need to do. You need to stand up for Justice and Equality and And and all of these things that she promotes as well amid your survey, that's an interesting choice of words and power. Saying it's not just an ask. It's almost a declaration that this is something that your generation needs to do. I had an interesting conversation with team. Sussex after this happened, and they said that this this speech really spoke to many of the issues that she will continue to focus on passionately moving forward. You know we're talking about gender equity, racial injustice, youth empowerment, and the importance of creating a healthy digital community I think she. More than other members of the family has really sort of felt the effects of the negative side of the Internet. and. I think that that's something that both Harry and Meghan really focus on moving forward. More of it, I mean I I. It's been great that they've done so many of these events and I'm curious with making on the scene of different situation than the royals in the UK right now, but it'll be interesting to see when they'll be able to get out there for those public engagements again as well and I think it might be quite some time, but it's great that they're taking advantage of things like these calls and his video recordings zooms to still make sure they have a presence despite the fact that because the occasion. Still not able to get out for public outings anymore. This was the three days summits, and of course it was supposed to take place physically in one place in the US, but I think the beauty of the situation recurrent in meant that it was actually able to reach much further corners the planet by sort of operating as this virtual fence. I also think this worked as a really great preview of the Duchess of Sussex and some. Some future speaking engagements we of course had that she had signed up with the Harry Walker Agency. Both she and Harry I'm really committed to take you on a lot of philanthropy based public speaking and I think that this is probably a sign of a lot more to come interesting I hadn't thought of that, but you're so right and the tone of this and the approach and the method I think it will really resonate and. It's it's. It's great to see this, and that's exciting to me might be seeing more of it as well.

Welcome back everyone now someone that we've seen out and about away from the Webcam a lot over the last few days is the Duchess of Cambridge recent visited families after backing new digital initiative for the BBC that's aimed to help parents and carers. Tiny happy people is the name of the digital hub launched by the BBC and the Duchess actually had quite a hand in some of the prices behind it. Yeah, it goes back a long way I think. The parents hen lots of parents and families the speak to that. You know how important ESTELA after. Token. And not showing CAF young kids, but I didn't realize you know before I started. All of this I. Didn't is just how important it is. you know some science behind on his extraordinary said ninety percent of adult brain grows the age of five and to shows. What a precious time! This is and what a amazing to Paris goes. It's really not That minds and Ready put them in the best possible position for their future lives, no I remember that first engagement that she had with the BBC back in November and I remember there was talk about her sort of taking part. Some of the behind the scenes work on some digital animated clips but I didn't at the time. have any idea that this would be tied in with tiny happy people. This is a really cool initiative, and of course ties in very well with a childhood development. That's really become the cornerstone of her charitable endeavors now. It's basically there to help lend support to parents and carers and helping children's language and communication skills from the womb up to the age of four great, we talk about this all the time, but to see the royals each have sort of their passion projects, and then when they really commit to them across so many. Different moments so many different charities and things that are patrons of its greatest. Obviously, this is something that case champion for so long and. What I love also is. Royal instagram accounts. All released some photos of the event as well and some of the ones. They released K.. They're just really cute. I mean there's ones of her almost making goofy face with the kid and being really excited, and it's such a a friendly and a wholesome in an open signed tecate that you can tell really comes out when especially when she's around. Kids like that. That so seeing these photos and having post on the social accounts and seeing interact with children in this way as US really endearing in age shows you how much she really does love this kind of work and I feel like this is when she's really out her best i. think she's very confident around children and I think partly due to the pandemic and having to. Carry out engagements in front of zoom video cameras. She's pounds a little bit more confidence herself in front of the camera. Of course, this announcement was followed by an appearance on BBC breakfast which was on Tuesday this week where she gave an interview with the show I'm not only talking about the initiative herself, but also about her own children, and dealing with them in lockdown I felt the funniest thing from that what she said. She feels like a constant feeding machine, and that her children have bottomless pits for stomach. Put, of course, this was part of a bigger conversation about parenting, but it was great to get some of those insights from her. About her when she was a first time, mom, she said that she wished that something like this initiative existed when she was expecting. George which of course feels like such a long time ago, now and we had some really sweet words about Louis says been struggling with social distancing little bit. Oh No, it's always great when you little glimpses inside their life right i. I mean I think it's special about this. Kate really does have so many personal experiences to so many of these parents that are dealing with similar issues, and even just hearing her experiences of feeding. Your kids are dealing with them during shut that loan lockdown dealing with them growing up as well, she can really relate to so many of these parents and so. It's great that she's taking this on sort of the face to these these problems and I'm really curious to know what it'll be like I. I think in particular. This resource in general is is so hands on, and that's great lots of times you know I. It's great to be raising awareness and to be talking about these issues, but then also deliver a platform that parents can actually use. It learn things and They can have tools at their disposal to help them become better. Parents help them with their kids. It's great, and it'll be interesting to see you know how parents in the UK really utilize this, and and what it can actually do for young parents to the animations for their website that she was involved with. She helped the character and background development for a couple of clips bombs about the importance of making eye contact with babies, and the other was about singing to them, whilst they're still in the womb and when the new bones. Very key. Give examples. I would love to hear what. Her babies, she did not unfortunately. Carriers but I. You know I think what's Great About Cate is we've had many glimpses into how she raises her children. We often get these great anecdotes from her on these engagements, because of course as a young mom herself, she can really relate her own experiences to those that she's hearing when she's there on the ground I did love her talking about. Louis, not understanding social distancing and saying that really he just wants to gas and cuddle everything particularly any babies that are younger than him. That's me an all puppies. Yoshi does not understand social distancing he's. He really doesn't. We've had to pause this recording times? Less it about that the. Usually wants his dad's attention right now. We'll someone who has mastered the art of social distancing and the zoom call is a majesty has health. Here's a actually appeared in. Zoom calls publicly, and now she's had more behind the scenes this week we got to hear her speaking to service personnel from the British Army the navy and the royal airforce via video call just to hear about the work of the British forces at home, and overseas during the pandemic, because a lot of the armed forces of course following the same guidelines as everyone else, but what was interesting about this as she proved to be quite the Dow pound when it came to lockdown communication so the pot of the Jamaican boasting. Gosh? How do you train unorthodox training methods so all been the push. A car on the street of to make agenda. One way to strain. Glad to be able to mutual review. And the best rock. I, just love this moment so much I mean, I know we get glimpses of the Queen's sometimes. We don't hear from her like this very often so to get this glimpse where she's. She's giggling great here. Is giggling to hear the queen in this way if it's such a unique in cute insight, can I think? It was a super cute moment. Then I'm doubling down very cute moment and I I love that it was shared. I think what was nice about this. Was You know? I said this before these virtual engagements that we get a little glimpse into I think we get to see a little bit more from that Royal, family member than we usually do one was sort of an arms length sort of covering from immediate position at an engagement. We actually get to hear some of the conversations and I. Think she's proved itself to be quite competent when it comes to zoom calls. Reading Vogue article this morning that said was commenting mostly on the Queen's attire threat zoom quote, but the headline. The Queen's Zoom Look is obviously better than yours and I felt. I felt very good by that. As I sat just finishing off zoom call in my sweatpants. Home will always so put together. I mean even today at the Captain Thomas Event. It was a wonderful light, blue suit, matching hat and on her zoom calls. It's always so put together I don't know you zoom calls. I'm like bedhead glasses on some very workout gear somewhere on my body. Even though I haven't actually worked out yet that day, it's much more of a disaster. It's good. It's good life goals. The Queen Right if the Queen at a mid nineties can still pull it together like this. There's no excuse for you and I. Well. That's the beauty of doing a podcast. Doing can see. That's the real reason. Right exactly and that just about wraps us up for news this week. We will definitely have lot more information on Prince's bitches. His wedding in the next episode. We will get those photos, Maggie. I'm sure you and I will both be analyzing every day, so we can for s omid.
