Fresh look for sure my my regret with my most recent sunglass purchases. I wish I would have gone with the the mirror coating on the outside a forget what the charge was for that. But. The more I see people with a with a mirrored sunglasses I should have gone that route. Don't want people looking in your eyes. That's what it is. You guys talk about people can't really see any anyway. But I don't know I feel like when you have sunglasses on the have the mirrored look and it's like Kinda colored, it's got a nice gradient it. It doesn't matter where you are, but you look like you should be at the beach. I understand.

Let's talk about gasoline, and that's not something that people normally think about buying generic or buying a store brand. But it happens and there are significant price disparities between different gas stations and typically the difference is kind of name-brand versus off brand or like a warehouse club or one of those stations that has like twenty pumps that does a lot of business and some people are convinced by gas at the major stations. is better for your. Your car and advertisements kind of try to sell you on that as well. But it's just not true. Right. Buying cheaper gas will not harm your car and as long as you're getting the proper octane that is meant for your vehicle. Then you're fine again. So much of it comes down to branding, saying that they have included special detergents in their gasoline, but there's just no discernible difference in any of that stuff. It's. It's really just marketing Mumbo jumbo. May, what about organics? Organic foods? If eating organic is important to you, it's gotten.

Big judge John Hodgman supporter, Craig and yeah. Very discreet. Yeah. For twenty friendly friend twenty family shaved though. Yeah. Come on Chris suit. I was a, so I guess some people like that when I was when I was doing this when I was doing this activity where I just go through Craigslist. Normally what I do is I'll find a van, and I'll text it to Ben Harrison from greatest generation he, and I share a great love of a square utility van of any type conversion van, you know, all these vehicles, but I found a paddle boat and Jordan, you review probably remember this. Sure, you and I bought a paddle boat on Craigslist, or actually, I think we sent Brian and Christian to go by and for us from a stranger in Orange County, and then we recorded a show just for donors on out on the lake. There's a video of it on the max von YouTube channel. You can watch it if you want to, I can't recommend it, then we just left the boat there. Yeah. And posted it free on Craigslist because we're like what are we gonna? I. Briefly considered bringing it up to my parking space here in the office. Right. And like leaning it against the wall. In case I wanted to go. It seemed wasteful to just give away a perfectly good paddle, perfectly good. It had lots of holes in it. Yeah. It was pretty. It was their quality and anyway, I saw a paddle boat that looked exactly like our paddle boat, and it was listed for ten dollars, and it was right in the part of Los Angeles. Mount Washington, where I where I live, and it has a it had a picture. You can see the picture there. Looks exactly like the boat that we used just a classic blue and white paddle boat that you'd rent at the marina, but ten dollars and I was like what's going on? Why is this boat ten dollars then condition fair, and then one up from poor it, yeah. Exactly. Then the description is below average condition. I'm telling those are two different conditions. If you asked me, that's a glass of that's a fair description. Below average condition. I'm told there is a hole in it. But I can't see possible. They mean they're not cited it's possible. I mean, they've never taken this boat out, it would be dangerous for them to try without a without a friend, or a companion of some kind to take this out on the lake because they literally can't see it's possible. They mean they all below average condition. I'm told there is a hole in it. But I can't see. Fun weekend project question. Mark find the whole excavation.

He's looking to find your spirit animal or yeah. So I guess it's like this over the past few years. Everything that I believed in phila- part, and I didn't know what mattered. Or what I was doing. And so I wanted to figure that out and the best way to figure that out was to stop doing a lot of things. And so it's my literally why worst nightmare. It's gray not doing great not doing things Li terrifies me. I didn't I didn't stop working. Yeah. And I didn't stop communicating with people, but I spent six months out there away from LA and the area, we live in is bordered on one side by some federal land, and another side by some state land. And there's native American reservation nearby. There's. Just beautiful wildness everywhere. What's the top top three animals southern Utah tied in, in coolness or how often you see them? Not how often you see them. Sheni. We're trying to make an entertaining program here. No one wants to hear bug bug and bug. We wanna hear cool animal, which, which, which were animals wear shades. Yes, they're all cool is the thing. I mean okay. So cool animals that we see very frequently out their goals. Oh, yeah. Often like may she roar? And there's, there's little spots in the cliffs, where you can see like white stuff coming out the side, and basically, you can tell whether nesting by their poop.

That would be fun to spot, a poop nest though, that's an American poop nest to use. Also exist in LA, but they're very different. So we have a couple of golden retrievers and a rescue poodle. They, they roll with us everywhere. They're gonna drive with us out to Utah. And when we're out there is when we when we're here in LA. We live up in the hills and close enough to some coyotes that we need to keep an eye on them. But they like to taunt the coyotes here and say this is this is my property you shall not pass. But there when they hear the coyotes they whimper, and they wanna come inside out there really hard core. And then the other thing there are various kinds of, of wild cats out there, as you know, Bob had some Cougars, and we, they're a big mountain sheep, but their numbers are, are smaller than they used to be. And they're, they're not in the low desert right now in the summer. Some are somewhere out there gets out to like, one hundred ten hundred fifteen hundred twenty sometimes that's too hot. Yeah. Realistically, yes. So here's our deal. We're going to drive out there. And then drive north through Nebraska and in through Minnesota. And we're going to the very northern border of Minnesota to the boundary waters for about a month, and we've got little floaty vest for our dogs, and we're just gonna canoe around and fish and eat walleye wild rice, and, and poetry rests on your dogs.

So we were all back there and we who are now Carl, and I were there with our mom at it was just a really a beautiful experience. We were so proud per, you know, the, the museum there really we were saying it feels more like our home than the homes that we lived in one of them the first that we were born in, th that we were born into, you know what I'm saying. It has been flattened and it is literally, a target parking lot. The world is beautiful tree. Jeez. And you know, possums and squirrels, and wildflowers weird things in the woods, Mr. stall gone.

And there were any other communities that weren't part of the mainstream were really weren't visible. And now there are so many more cultures kind of in the mix there it's still a super racist place and it's still super confusing place. Because when you grow up in a place where there are civil war, monuments, that you drive by, when you grow up in a place where their civil war money. Uments that you drive by every day on the way to work. It's just part of the landscape. Right. And when the U people go for drinks and for restaurant on a Friday or Saturday night down into shock. Oh, bottom in the city. Well, it's with a slave market was, and it's right there where that bar is. And what's underneath that? Well, it'd be interesting to know this island over here, there was a so-called slave rebellion on that island. And you can you can read about these things. But why would you because nobody cares? And it's a relevant. And you know, maybe it was fake anyway. And Viva Trump and now is it you mentioned a target parking lot.

G. Willow Wilson Creator of Kamala Khan
"This episode g willow Wilson, she's a comic book author, and she wrote the first marvel comic with a young Muslim woman as the hero, Kamla, Han aka MS marvel. So when I was in high school, I was kind of a giant Goth. I was the kind of insufferable kid who, who would say that they were not actually cost the Gosper, too pretentious, and that I was above that of. But Nevertheless, I wore the really dark lipstick and like the fish nuts, and the pseudo Victorian jackets, that you could find like buffalo exchange. Yeah. I mean, if you looked up Goss in the dictionary, you would have found a photo of me somewhere. Fortunately, for me around the same time, sort of the late eighties early nineties, this British wave of very literary experimental comics started coming out. And I ran Pedley became obsessed, and one of my absolute favorite series, as was the case for a lot of people was Sandman by Neil Gaiman. Which took a World War, Two era, kind of be list, super hero and turned him into this mythological dream king who goes on adventures with all kinds of different, mythical creatures and kind of deconstructs, western mythology from a really interesting point of view. So, you know, for me as like a fourteen year old fifteen year old mega Goth this was huge and revelatory. Not just the story itself, but the medium of comics. Sandman told a kind of story in comic book form that I didn't really know was possible. It was kind of my first exposure to these more literary more adult kinds of comics, when I was a kid comics were still considered very much a kids, medium, and particularly a boys medium. There were not things that were marketed at girls. There were very few books out there that were adjacent to the superhero world that were marketed to adults so to see a comic book that was very clear and open in its love for that classics Hooper hero story. And yet, at the same time talked about Shakespeare and Chaucer and you know, brought in a very Joseph Cambell kind of U of mythology. Just expanded my understanding of what could be done within the pages of a comic book. I want to take a quick break to tell you about another podcast. I worked on it's called the big one your survival guide. We walk you through what it would be, like, if a major earthquake hit Los Angeles, and we help you understand what you need to know, to survive science and journalism, and immerses you and the experience of being in a huge earthquake. Don't be scared. We help you prepare. You can find it today wherever you listen to this show. Okay. Back to tell them. I am. So as I remember, the first time I found Neil, Gaiman Sandman, I was at the apartment of a friend. Who is I think about two years older than me and had graduated. And they were already living on their own. And so we're, we're very kind of cool and grown up in my eyes. You know, the, the people who live, there had also been giant Goths. So there were clove cigarettes, which were still legal at the time sitting around, and, ashtrays, and that's kind of always what it smelled, like, which I like the smell of. But it had that kind of late nineties, Goth aesthetic, every all the windows were kind of draped in, like, JoAnn fabric in sort of dark colors. It was it was just that kind of place. This apartment had a collective library of all kinds of great stuff, and they were all reading Sandman, and they had they'd just sort of made a rule, you can read whatever you want, but don't take anything out of the apartment. But because their library was so big. I was like, nobody will notice if I just kind of sneaked these back issues out and read them on my own, so I did. And. It was one of those reading experiences that, that kind of sticks out in your mind as being something for which there is a before. And an after he read this book. It made me feel a lot less grubby as a Goth it, oh, it was a very unabashedly Goth comic. And it was kind of cool to see something with such a huge cultural impact that was kind of headlined by this very Goth guy with white makeup, an extremely scruffy kind of Robert Smith, secure hair, and it was kind of a nice affirmation that you could do the stuff. And it you'd be kind of like a mopey teenager. And yet have cool stories that meant something, and that we're all to uplifting, and we're about hope. So, you know, it was in, in that sense. Nice to see Goths doing some kind of artistic service for, for the whiter were. The kind of storyteller that he was was very influential, and then as I got a little bit older. And I I saw him a couple of times back. This is back when he used to tour. I was also very impressed with the way that he approached writing and being a writer and it being a human being. There was one instance, in which I saw him along with a bunch of other really amazing comic book writers, including, I think Peter David, at MIT just a few days, not more than a week after nine eleven. Nine eleven happened just a couple of weeks after my nineteenth birthday at the beginning of my junior year of college. And he you know, I was I was very much a college student, I was kind of going through a late adolescent. What does it all mean phase, I become interested in, in religion and started to sort of rethink what I assumed about life, and purpose and are, are sort of our place in the universe. And like everybody, I think it was it was a tremendous shock. I think particularly people of my vintage kind of elderly millennials or Xeni, all's had never known a time when the US felt really threatened. The Cold War was kind of over, there was a sense that we were separate from the rest of the world or that nothing could ever interrupt. That period of prosperity into which we had been born and so nine eleven just massively shook the foundations of our generational experience and especially being in Boston at Boston University, the feeling of ongoing threat and vulnerability was quite high. Two of the planes had taken off from Logan airport. There are all kinds of rumors circulating that, there were still a terrorist cells in the city. And so it really did feel like a war zone in many ways, and it occurred to me, just sort of walking to class that this is the reality that so much of the rest of the world faces every single day. And somehow we have managed to avoid it for this long. And now here we are just like the rest of the world. as we did for a lot of things during those weeks after nine eleven we kind of hung around to see if this event was actually going to happen because a lot of them were cancelled. And it was clear that, yes, it was going to happen. It was still going on. So we, you know, we decided okay, well, we're not we're not going to give up this, this chance to see all of these amazing authors and artists on stage at the same time. And we decided yeah, we're going to go. We're going to we're going to do it, despite the sort of aura of anxiety and dread. That was kind of hanging over everything. What was interesting to me is the Neil Gaiman was the only one in his kind of opening words who never mentioned nine eleven once everybody on stage when they got up to talk that was what they talked about. It was it was about superheroes in nine eleven. You know, I think one of the people on stage envisioned this world in which wolverine was on the plane with the terrorists, and sort of got up and, and hit them with his finger spikes. And it kind of rubbed me the wrong way because I remember thinking, you know, this is not the time to pretend that are fictional heroes are gonna do us any kind of good. It's too real. It's a nice thought that yes. If we had these amazing heroes who were always in the right place at the right time that they would have saved us, but they didn't. And Neil Gaiman got up and never mentioned nine eleven once he just sort of told a story, I don't even remember what it was that he talked about. But by the end of it for about thirty seconds. We all forgot and in a weird way, I think that prepared us to have them were serious conversation versus the. Yeah. Wolverine would I've got him if you'd have been there, which, which just felt very tried to me. The reason that that stood out to me was because it illustrated, very neatly that for a storyteller in a time of great national tragedy upheaval. The way forward is not always the way through that sometimes we assume we're in a position to attack things head on. And yes, we're gonna fight, whatever it is or or get through whatever it is. And it's, it's very easy to blur the line at that point between storytelling and, and just sort of shallow saber rattling. But what he said at that time illustrated to me that it was possible to speak in a deeper key and not to pretend that you have the answers that you need all the answers. You know, everybody was was in an incredibly tense somber. Reflective mood, and it I think brought a lot of us especially who are about my age. I was eighteen at the time into the realization that we are all mortal that, that, that nothing that we think, is a turtle is eternal, and that the world may be didn't look the way that we had been taught growing up,

Federal prosecutors filing charges today against a woman who allegedly got into mar-a-lago on Saturday. She was quipped the fettered say like a small electronic store, including four cell phones. And he thumb drive with malware on it now, maybe just forgot to do a virus scanned in any case. It's quite a case in quite a story. Nncholas Namuz investigative reporter for the Miami Herald, he joins us now. So Nick, first of all who is this woman that was arrested. How did she tomorrow Lago? So we don't know a whole lot about this woman from China whose name is Eugene, John she showed up at mar-a-lago on Saturday with as you said an electronics store in her bag and said she wanted to attend to United Nations friendship event with China between China and the United States. This was I after saying that she had wanted to use the pool. Her story didn't add up, and she wasn't on any guest list mar-a-lago. So eventually she was detained and then interviewed and arrested by the US secret service. She's from Taiwan is that correct? No. That was actually a mistake in David. It should have said People's Republic of China. She's a China's national from at least she was traveling from Shanghai. Can you tell us more about the the technological items that she was carrying? She had four cell phones. One lab top one external hard drive and one thumb drive that according to federal agents was loaded with or contained quote malicious malware now all Mel is malicious by its nature. So, but we don't really know much more about what was on this drive. You know, was she a harmless tourist who happen to get a virus on thumb drive or or was she intending to plant something at the president's private resort. That is unclear but charges have been filed against her. She has been charged with lying to a federal officer. And that's because of the conflicting stories she told the secret service and also with entering a restricted area, meaning an area that was secure for the president of the United States if she had just showed up tomorrow Lago when Trump wasn't there. It would be more like a simple trespass charge. But so the the what was the president at mar a Lago and all this happen. He was at his nearby golf course in West Palm Beach, although he was staying at mar-a-lago that weekend and again her motivation. It's not clear is that right? It's not it's not clear at first you said she wanted to use the pool then she said she was there for some kind of UN event. And then she was detained. It's fascinating.

California voters approved proposition seven last week a measure that would allow the state to stay in daylight saving time year round. It brings me to my question. What other country or entity recently announced it intends to Pullman glee scrap daylight saving time, the European Union China Russia or South America. Stay tuned. And we'll tell you the correct answer. My book of the weakest so fi Petters revolution front says Emmanuel Macron and the quest to reinvent a nation. I read this prepare for my interview last week for all those intrigued by mccraw fascinating figure on the world stage. This is the best book on him and his effort to make France Great again. And now for the last look take a look at these paintings. They were commissioned by gum gum, an artificial intelligence company with a focus on computer vision alongside researchers from. Rutgers University one of these six art works was not painted by human being gum. Gum was interested in how closely I could come to replicating the human creative process. So can you guess which painting was the work of a robot? If you pick the last you will correct. This is cloud. Painter painting robot developed by American artists bender van Arman, the machine scammer takes a photograph of a subject to paint and using AI techniques. Facial recognition deep learning. The computer begins to put paint on the canvas with the help of algorithms. Clyde painted creates an original composition, and it is not simply painting preplanned brushstrokes like three D printer would the robot watches its work and changes direction as the painting develops drawing inspiration from other images and paintings much like a human artist would so is art created by a robot still Art Van Arman says for now his robots capable artistic assistance, but they may make art independently humans in the not too distant future. The answer to my GPS challenge. This week is eight the European Commission announced the EU should forego mandatory seasonal clock changes starting next year. And online survey ordered by the European parliament received an unprecedented. Four point six million responses with eighty four percent of respondents in favor of ending the bi-annual clock change the commission, presented a formal proposal to the bottom and individual countries will have the choice of staying in some rural wintertime zones permanently as for California.
