Can I say something very quickly since this is short stuff? Sure Right before we recorded you said Dakota Fanning and that reminded me I just got back from New York and I had six celebrity sightings One of which was Elle Fanning. Oh, yeah. Yeah, she's in the lobby of a hotel. I go in that hotel to pee I'm always got my head on a swivel in that town, especially in fancy hotel lobbies Sure, and I was like, hey, this is Dakota Fanning and I was like she was sitting with people I was like, there's got to be somebody else famous went to the bathroom came out sitting next to Jessica Chastain Wow, pretty major sighting then at one of my pavement shows I saw Noah Baumbach and Greta Gerwig Yeah, they're married okay Wow say so power couple yeah, I mean he co -wrote Barbie with her and Dean Wareham of Luna, they're all good friends and they were all together So that was a three banger in one and this this lady near me was jumping up and down like screaming it at Greta Gerwig and she was very sweet from up above in the balcony and like made the little heart symbol and like said she Loved her was very sweet.

We got to go cuz we're talking the Dakota here and not Dakota fanning or Elle fanning No, the apartment building in New York City. That's right. The one where John Lennon was shot in front of Live there. No, no. No, he lived there and he was he was shot on the sidewalk outside the Dakota. So That's not the only reason the Dakota's famous. Although it's probably the biggest reason the Dakota's famous One of the reasons that Dakota is famous is because it was one of the first apartment buildings in New York City like they didn't do apartments back then and even more spectacular than that it being one of the first apartment buildings is that it was Plunked down in the Upper West Side at a time when Central Park West one of the most What is it white healed high healed? Well healed well healed like Bits of stretches of real estate in the world was a dirt road still and nowhere's Phil nowhere Yep, nobody wanted to go up that far. They're like, there's nothing up there That's right. Hey seeds in in fact, it was so far out that The guy who built the Dakota who will meet in the second Edward Cabot Clark bought it from an industrialist Whose wife threatened to divorce him if he built their house out there and he's like, I don't just get rid of this piece of Land then yeah, she's like I want to live down here where it's posh in alphabet city You know, it's funny is if you you remember if you go read our book There's a whole chapter on keeping up with the Joneses in it Oh, yeah talks a lot about this part of of New York history where there are all sorts of nowhere's Ville's around that today are just like incredibly and famous Expensive that's right. All right, so the Dakota like you said people were not living in apartments at the time they were living in brownstones, which were single -family homes and There were a couple like a couple started to spring up in the 1870s They weren't great. They were Kind of like you think of New York apartments. They were small. They didn't have a lot of light People didn't love renting And living in them and along came this guy Edward Cabot Clark that you mentioned He was the president of the Singer sewing machine company So he was loaded and he got together with an architect named Henry Janeway Hardenberg a great name and to get into real estate and the first thing they built which is sadly not there anymore is Kind of a prototype for the Dakota called the van Corlier a red brick five -story 36 apartment building that was on 7th between 55th and 56 Yeah, and it immediately improved on its predecessors Because the rooms were larger the apartments themselves were larger. There was a courtyard. So there was plenty of like natural light and air Had elevators apparently which are we're talking like the 1880s 1870s and there was also I think a What was there oh there was a ramp that went beneath it so then You didn't have to solely your family reputation by accepting deliveries out there in public You could go down to the basement and meet the delivery driver to get them to take whatever they gave you Yeah, and it was just nicer overall I think there was a an intercom system and you know, like Spanish tile. It was just it was just a step up for sure and all of a sudden in 1878 They rented out very quickly and so Clark was like, alright it turns out if you if you build it nice enough they will come and Apartments can be a real thing and like you said bought that property or I guess it was just land at the time, right? Yeah, yeah bought this land from Jacob Henry Schiff way way uptown and Decided to build his second Sort of dream property there. Yep, which would be the Dakota and I say that we pause for a message break and then return and begin talking about the Dakota some more and Tiffany Haddish right after this I'm Jonathan Strickland host of the podcast tech stuff I sat down with Sunun Shahani of Surfare Mobility, which recently went public We talked about flying and electric planes and regional air mobility The future of travel doesn't have to include crowded airports cramps seats or long road trips It can be as simple as using an app to book a short -range flight on an electric plane Learn more on tech stuff on the I heart radio app Apple podcasts or wherever you get your podcast This episode of stuff you should know is brought to you by t -mobile for business Hey everybody have you ever been driving around looking for a parking spot getting more and more irritated and you think why can't I just Look up parking spaces around my area I mean like wouldn't that make sense and if you find the spot faster You're going to create less traffic and in that sense Everybody's life is made better just by the ability to look up a parking spot.

That's right offering the nation's largest 5g network T -mobile is the best network partner to take your business to the next level now is the time to business Bravely and start building your future today Just go to t -mobile .com slash now to learn more So Chuck we're talking about the Dakota now starting now Okay, so if the van Corleer was a Advancement based on the stuff that came a few years before it the Dakota was an even better advancement Improvement based on the van Corleer. It had big apartments big rooms Courtyard lots of light Ramp underneath and all that stuff, but it was also like even more Luxuriously designed like if you came over to someone's apartment, you couldn't see through down the hallway to every single room the walls were kind of like designed around so that you couldn't like there was a Separation between your visitors in the living part of the apartment or the sleeping part, you know the family part I guess is what you call it just little details like that Another big detail is that it had its own power plant that generated electricity for it in the 1870s Yeah, not bad the kitchens had little balconies so if you had stinky stuff like garbage that you couldn't get down or Maybe even stinky food or something. You could put it just right outside the kitchen, which was something that a lot of places didn't have Yeah, they had a boiler So they had insulated pipes bringing steam and hot water into the building Which was a big innovation at the time and they had tennis courts. They had croquet courts It was it was a real gym. It still is it's one of my favorite buildings in New York Every time I go up there to Central Park, at least I try to pop out on that area and just go go Give it a look Because it's a beautiful building. It's sort of a mishmash of styles It's been called, you know, French Renaissance or got German Gothic or even Victorian and it's kind of a little bit of everything But it's it's beautiful. I don't think I've ever seen it in person if I have I didn't realize it You may have it's it's lovely. It's right there on a corner. So here's the thing when Edward Cabot Clark was creating the Dakota He was widely derided for it. They called it Clark's Folly because people were deeply insensitive in the 19th century and the reason why they call it that is because again, it's in the middle of nowhere and People aren't really into apartments Like we said they live in like three -story Brownstones like they live in homes They don't live in apartments the people who lived in apartments as far as this house stuff works article points out were widows Widowers and people who are waiting for their wealthy relatives to die so they could inherit their house And all of a sudden Clark is like no. No, we're changing the game Anyone who is anyone is gonna want to live in an apartment and it turns out his gamble paid off. He was right Yeah, he sadly he died before it was finished So he didn't get to see it come to fruition But it was certainly not his folly because like you said people lined up to rent these things or I guess I don't know were they all rentals at the time. I wonder if anyone were available for sale. I think they were all rentals Okay, well people rented him, but they were people that had money. They just weren't like robber barons who wanted to live in mansions They were they were sort of the early New York, you know upper class They were people who like were bank presidents and people who like the CEOs of the time, right? Apparently the Adams sisters were heirs to a chewing gum Fortune they live there with it and that flavor tea berry one of the greatest gum flavors of all time. That's a Was it tea berry? Now, are you kidding? Cuz I can't tell no. No, that's for real. It's like a Kind of salmon pink colored Gum, no, no the the wrapper is okay It tastes like salmon too. No, it's a really delicate unique flavor and you could probably find it like Cracker Barrel Don't they have all sorts of old -timey candies or one of those rocket fizz places? I have no idea anywhere that sells candy I'll bet they have tea berry stick gum and it's really worth trying. All right Nice tip there. Thanks. So The Dakota started a trend all of a sudden luxury apartment houses started popping up all over the place Kind of in the same model with like bigger rooms and higher ceilings and stuff like that and the Upper West Side it wasn't right then but around the early 1900s that really started to take off and Really changed the face of New York of New York, you know, they they started building up more after World War one, obviously when New York said they could and Apartments became the way to go. Yeah Eventually, the the Dakota started seeing a different clientele not you know Straights and squares like bank presidents but like stars like Lauren Bacall and Judy Garland Wowie Wow horse Karloff, too That's pretty cool Imagine living next to him and then of course two of the most famous residents John Lennon and Yoko Oh, no Is blamed widely for moving John Lennon to the Dakota and he would have lived had she not done that Do people say that? Probably somebody out there. Okay poking fun at those people. No, I think he loved the Dakota Yeah, it would seem to be his home. They were there for like a dozen years. I think right before he died I'm not sure how long he loved New York City though. It was it was a great scene for both. He and Yoko. Yep You anything else? I got nothing else go check out the Dakota if you're in New York It's a great great looking building.

I'll leave tomorrow. I'm so grossed out right now. That is a true honest to God's story. Oh my God. This is like a different meaning for the word unseen, but just as horrifying. Yeah, sure. I feel sick, a little bit sick. Oh man. It was, it was pretty gross. It was pretty good. And then the next morning I didn't get any sleep, obviously, and then we had to do a scene where I'm like above Michael and I'm like crying, and that was the only day I kind of was a diva where I was just like, Yoko, I just am not getting there, you know? I just did sleep, and I'm just these bugs. And then it actually ended up being a great scene, so there you go. Sometimes you need some cockroaches. Use that energy. Exact cockroach. But that is a pretty good bad. But now we're on WTF. So man, gotta reach down and find a topper for that. What was the WTF of making unseen? The WTF of making on seed. Well, the bathrooms were really far away. But you're in the wilderness. I don't know. You know how, I don't know if you know like being an actor on set.

Whoever was doing continuity has got to be like, okay, that person has got to be given some sort of special hug at the end of this project, so. That was me and Midori. Honestly, we tag teamed it. Like we would write notes because so much changed, right left, up, down, back here, there, what, you know, we just kind of kept our notes and remembered for each other because when I was in on camera, I could focus and see what majority was doing. And when she wasn't on camera, she could focus and see what I was doing. And we were right next to each other and had the best view, honestly, to do it. So it was, I think, teamwork.

What Happened to Pamela Anderson's Face?
"Did you see the interview the other day Pamela Anderson and a new husband, Dan hey Hearst? Schmuck, Dan, hayhurst, who left his wife in three kids to one from building pants deck to fucking the former Baywatch babe. All his wife and kids had no idea. I mean, his wife had dinner with Pam. They became friendly. And this asshole decides to stop. I mean, things like that can happen. I'm sure that marriage wasn't good in some capacity. But he really looks like an asshole on top of looking like an asshole physically. Now he looks that way more in a broader sense. But I watched this video of an interview they did. Some British show called loose women, which that's kind of funny in itself, to be interviewing Pam Anderson, a show called loose women. And they call her up and she's in bed. She and Dan answer the phone while under the covers, which, by the way, John Lennon and Yoko Ono did this S.W.A.T. 40 something years ago. 50, maybe. Come up with something new, Pam. It just, you know, the whole thing of being in bed with your new husband, you're 6th fucking husband. It's getting tiresome. And I didn't know it was Pam Anderson at first. I thought they were interviewing dame Judi Dench. That's what Pam is turning into. I mean, I don't know if that's her face without makeup or if this is just what she settled on with cosmetic procedures. I have no idea what option is saddest. But ladies, you got to stop injecting bullshit into your cheek into your cheekbones. It looks like you got two hamburger buns below your eyeballs. Do you think men think that your natural look?

Curiosity to the flies wandering. But when ona's breath rasping becomes her global. Sounds are like sharp pinpricks on the skit. As her voice greats like nails on a chalkboard we now might recoil from the same image of the exploring fly when the fly lands unless pelvis ono's growls elicit palpable shudders. Her yip's also border on excitement fly disappears. Ono's tactile utterances. Become low best. You'll growls from the back of her throat. These sounds folk.

We can hear a variation of an expert singing from fourteen. Polaris prize winner. Tanya gawk and her track if inuk from two thousand and five long listening to fly with these techniques in mind we can hear connotations challenge or competition within those growls and grunts against these images. These sounds suggests both the flies hunger for flesh and the women's defiance ono has long positioned her voice as the primary force behind her artistic political projects in a twenty thirteen interview with helen brown from the telegraph ono states. Why is woman always known for pretty voice and pretty sohn's because that's what the world wants. They don't want a woman to sound too strong. We feel we shouldn't scream out.

The Timothy Leary Conviction
"On january twenty first nineteen seventy former harvard professor and so called priest of lsd timothy. Leary was sentenced to ten years in prison on drug smuggling charges but in september of that year. The fifty year-old academic broke out of a san luis obispo facility with the help of the weatherman. The daring escape only added to the mystique of the man president. Nixon wants declared the most dangerous man in america. But just what made leery so dangerous. Well it might not surprise you. That richard nixon may have been exaggerating for his own political game according to authors. Bill minna tag. Leo and stephen l davis nixon's advisors suggested he find a public enemy to distract the public from his own flagging approval rating the war in vietnam and the struggling economy. They leary a prominent figure in the counterculture movement and because the former professor was a proud exponent of hallucinogenic drug use. The president's ir fit right in with his war on drugs narrative timothy leary was something of a self appointed spokesperson for the benefits of drug use. Which heat enjoyed since one thousand nine hundred sixty after an experimental magic mushrooms trip. The already noted psychologist became excited about the possibilities. Mushrooms and similar drugs had on the human brain during his tenure. At harvard he conducted academic experiments on the effects of hallucinogens. Drawing the attention and admiration of other notable nineteen sixties figures famed authors. Like gin berg and jack kerouac willingly participated in leary's experiments and it was perhaps their involvement that catapulted the professor onto the national stage before long leary was touring the country speaking about his research and reportedly brushing up against the rich and famous inevitably a backlash arrived. Leary's teaching colleagues criticized his experimentation with lsd. They believed research of that. Nature should be left to medical doctors not psychologists meanwhile psychology experts who once lauded leary's earlier work now made it clear that his drug centered experiments were less praiseworthy. Despite these blows leary insisted that taking lsd was quote a sacramental ritual one that could expand human consciousness. Harvard university did not agree and fired him in nineteen sixty three but by that stage leary had a new life. He was a counterculture touchstone for the masses and a legitimizing scientific voice in the pro drug movement. He rubbed shoulders with marilyn monroe and sang with john. Lennon and yoko ono in short he was a powerful voice advocating for drug use throughout the nineteen sixties. He even appeared before a senate committee to argue in favor of legislation. That would make it legal for adults to use hallucinogenic drugs. So when richard. Nixon assumed the presidency in nineteen sixty nine leary was squarely in his sights. Ostensibly nixon wanted to eliminate drug use in the country. Leary very much did not. That made him dangerous. So it's little surprise that when leary's appeal of his nineteen sixty five drug-smuggling conviction was overturned. The government wanted a second bite at the apple but any joy nixon and his cabinet might have felt in putting leary. Away was short lived using his network of contacts. The former professor escaped prison remaining on the run until nineteen seventy three when he was detained in afghanistan and sent back to the united states. There he was jailed in the notorious folsom. Prison and briefly befriended charles manson and though his sentence was for ten years leary was paroled in nineteen. Seventy six having served just three. It's a surprising twist day given that so many drug offenders imprisoned for decades on similar offenses then again timothy leary was famous and white which might have had something to do with his early release

And, uh, there's a mean of the album color cover where they were both standing there naked from behind. Remember, that was huge. And Johnny Oh, no, John, John and Yoko. Ah! Shown their earned and the name says, if you ever feel useless, remember the Yoko Ono F tough The Beatles with an ass like this, and you got to see the picture? Yeah, truly. I mean in my comment was well, she was committed. She really worked at it. Colin, welcome down the edge. I say we run takes. Thanks for taking my call. I just saved a couple of really quick things that I'd like to say. And then I was like, Did you hear your response to it? The first is Can we please stop calling council culture. Um cancel culture can call it what it is. I've never thought I've never used that phrase. But go ahead. It's it's fascist. Yeah, it's sensor seven Fascism 100% straight. It's straight up fascism and the other thing. I'm gonna say what it is also, uh, if you if you read our familiar with Orwell's 1984 what it is, is they take you into whatever it's called the mystery of love. You disappear. That's what it is. They're disappearing. You They're fading you out into nonexistence. Good, Absolutely new Speak. And the other thing is, is that you know, surfing around online and looking all pictures of various capitals. You know the capital in D C and state capitals and that with all the fencing and Just all kinds of National Guard troops. And I think they've even, um deployed active military around D C for I don't know. Five years. They were saying that Trump was going to declare martial law and all this other stuff, But really, it seems to me the left now is is declaring martial law. I'm somewhat confused on that. Maybe you can clarify this. It takes a presidential order to do that. Biden's not president. Yet. Who put that in play? I don't know. I heard that Donald Trump transferred. Another people have told me that he's transferred pretty much everything over to homeland security and FEMA. And they, in many ways wield more power than the president doesn't so they're doing this. Um, but I have to I I can't believe that this would happen without some type of presidential work. I don't know that there's anything to be read into that other than they want, Uh, D c not to be burned to the ground. But I don't know it's it's very strange, and you're absolutely correct. Now. They're milking it because they're already making the case that we need to keep this going. And as if you cut the Tuckers constant show last night or the rebroadcast of that segment. Today on the show the first our second hour I played that he makes this case that they're literally saying through Psyop, if you will we have two divisions of military here. They're coming from National Guard all over the country as far as Alaska down in the Puerto Rico and we could move them as fast as you could possibly magic minute crush you if you get out of line, mister right Wing Nut case, Trump supporter. Well, you know that that part I haven't I haven't Um, checked out because I'm out here. You know me? I'm out here in the hinterlands. And I don't get get get all that stuff. But, you know, I mean, I know what I see and Um I see. Not not just National guard troops, but from what? I've read active military. They are there. Those guns are loaded. They've got orders to shoot to kill that. That's straight effect right now. Yes. Yeah. Yeah, And so for me What? That what that suggesting, And I'm not gonna, you know, play many any kind of, you know authority on this, but that to me is suggesting. Now we've got a military presence and, you know, maybe just a little short of a military coup. I don't see that myself. I don't see a military coup. I see that the military coup has already taken place and that the progressives that infested the Pentagon of their ruling the roost right now. There's your military camp. Yeah, well, okay. Yeah, that That's a fair point. And that's how I see it. That's why I said almost there almost bragging about as a matter of fact. Well, let's back up. Now. You remember when Hussein Obama before he was even He was just sniffing around. The White House haven't gone in yet, but he was talking about fundamental transformation. And the fundamental transformation it took place. Nobody really talks about this any detail. They filled every position available from janitor up to secretary of and you fill in the blank with a progressive psychotic. An anti American America last progressive psychotic. How did that play out? How's it playing out now? The military all of it. They did the great purge on then they filled him with a bunch of progressives. They've done it with the State Department, which is the color revolutions happening. All Communist revolutions all over the The planet on this is why Donald Trump's had such a hard time because it's the fundamental transformation the foundation put in place is titanium. By Hussein Obama and now he's got a third term. Absolutely. Yes. I totally agree it and, you know, Department of Homeland Security. Which sort of this umbrella organization above everybody else. They're all they're all stacked. With. You know, former Obama people and you know they're calling the shots. And that's why I'm thinking, you know, I don't know. You know what? Why are not just national guard people, but Active military from from what I see from what I've been reading online. Why are they deployed that to me? You know that's getting really close to a military intervention. If he will. Well, we may see that We just may see that I don't know. I mean, right now, From what I understand, I'm not going to name any names. But I heard that some of the arrests that are going down around the country with regard to we're gonna identify everybody. The capital come and get him. I mean, there's their warrantless. They're coming in weapons, drawn safety off military and taking people on dragging him in, and they're sticking in jail without any kind of Miranda rights. At this point they're looking at it is domestic terrorism that took place in D C. Now I'm not saying that some people I would argue many of them deserve that. If you will in that that was domestic terrorism on one level. But no wars were being were being sent a message right now. That's what Carlson was talking about. They're telling us in no uncertain terms. We own your ass now. You're under military rule controlled by progressive left, and now we own your ass. Now don't even think about getting on line and we're coming for your voice. We already have taken your voice pretty much for coming from for all of it soon and your weapons And and there's there's what if we can, you know, just circle back to what I said earlier about cancel culture, That's.

"I've come all the way from bottom worked Photograph John and Yoko. Cause up to the office and he says he'll be down in 10 minutes. Just do me one favor. Don't Father. Don't approach them right inside the gate area. Let them come out and go and sort of steer them to the side a little bit because I don't want people. To be blocking the gate, and that's what would have happened. So they came out and and and they come down and they and John comes out. All right. Where's the guy from Baltimore? So I told him who I was. And the first thing I did was, I showed him the record sleeve. And he takes the first thing, he says his mother And shows Yoko the sleeve. He takes his glasses off. He's looking at it real close, and he turns to me, says How did you know this? How could you have known this? Have. I had no idea what he's talking about. I have no idea. And he's looking at it really close and and he's asking me questions about him. What was this for? And I said, and I said, Well, this was for part of one of my finals in school.

And the more nervous I God, the more they were laughing and the more they were laughing, folks, I I wish that I could have gotten photos when they were laughing. I couldn't do it.

All you have to do expect, focus and press the button. So I took a picture. So he says, You think you've got one, he says. Take another one, so I took a second one. He says. He just You think you got one? I say. I said, I think so. He goes. Take one more. Just never forget. I said just to be sure.

Looking back at the reaction to John Lennon's death 40 years ago today
"Today, the former Beatle John Lennon was killed in New York in an act of violence that shocked millions of his fans and then had been shot by a disturbed fan as he returned to his home the Dakota apartment building with his wife, Yoko Ono. Reporting live from the Dakota for BBC News at that time was Tom Brook 40. Years on Tom, who lives in New York, has been taking a very personal look back at his memories of that night and exploring Lenin's growing legacy today. Imagine where Snow heaven John Lennon's anthem Imagine is routinely performed by musicians and fans in Strawberry fields that section of New York Central Park dedicated to the former Beatles memory. Just across the street from the Dakota apartment building. 40 years ago, the Dakota was where John Lennon's life came to a sudden and horrific end. Millions of Americans first heard the news while watching Monday night football on the ABC network. Unspeakable tragedy. John Lennon, outside of his apartment building on the west side of New York City, shot twice in the back dead on arrival. It's half past six time for today. Good Good morning morning from from Brian Brian Redhead Redhead and and Libby Libby Purvis. Purvis. The The former former Beatle Beatle John John Lennon Lennon has has been been shot shot dead dead outside outside his his home home in in New New York York in in London. London. The The BBC's BBC's Today program was on the air, bringing first news of Lennon's death to British audiences. I had rushed to the Dakota found a public phone booth on West 72nd Street. Everyone around me. Lennon fans were crying soon I was on the air talking. Can you tell us exactly what happened. John Lennon was killed two hours ago. I got most of my information from talking to the literally hundreds of fans who are now congregating outside the Dakota building where they're going to hold on all night vigil, and it's a very weird scene indeed, because they're playing Lennon music. A lot of them are in tears and they're weeping on there, either stunned or they're hysterical. That seems like a long time ago and itwas over the years I've watched this journalist colleagues have covered the deaths of other pop culture figures, but none seem to bring forth the collective grief Witness with John Lennon. Celebrated New York photographer Bob Gruen was one of Lenin's friends. Well, the reaction to his death was worldwide. And it was such a shock. You know that he died, and then he died so violently. When all his life you've been talking about peace and trying to help others imagine peace. And here he was shot for that. But 40 years on the trauma has receded on John Lennon now has a new generation of fans some very young among them. 10 year old Yasha, Kigali's who I met in Strawberry Fields. I like the words and I like the music and I like the room and how it all goes together. I think that it's about something that is very important. Imagine novel the people today in these pandemic weary, conflict ridden times. Young musicians like Tom McKay, Hearn and Seattle really embrace Lenin's message. The fact that he emphasized love and peace and this idea of striving for something that doesn't currently exist. I still see that message is something that we need. Thinking about something that's beyond ourselves is just incredibly powerful. Not everything in relation to Lenin was wondrous. He could be mean and nasty, and he admitted that he abused women. None of this has really affected his legacy. If anything, his stature as a musician has grown since he died, it's still making an impact. As music journalist Jordan run talk explains. He has one of the truly great voices in rock history. And now you have artists like Liam Gallagher of Oasis and then modern bands like Tame Impala and cut worms who will get that very specific went and asked vocal sound because it's such a trademark. Hold someday join us. Today I live just four blocks from the Dakota. Sometimes I wander into strawberry fields. I think what I like most about Lenin was that he had an authentic voice. Not just musically. He did and said some stupid things, but he wasn't a fake something quite refreshing to ponder. In our age of endless posturing by politicians and celebrities. No problem.

A Song For Peace
"This is the story of a song that is in a way the story of this country in the spring of Nineteen, sixty-nine at a sidewalk cafe on Richmond Street tucked in from the corner of Dizengoff. Street in Tel Aviv a twenty four year old poet named Yakov or Janka wrote Blit met a twenty five year old musician and arranger named yet year Rosenbloom and the two men became friends the cafe was called California and the. Place, itself said something about the people who made a habit of spending their days especially, their long nights there. The first thing to know about Cafe California is what it wasn't just one hundred and twenty five meters up Dizengoff was a legendary Bohemian cafe called carseat. It had been in operation since nineteen, thirty five, and since then it was the place where you can find some of Jewish palestines and then Israel's greatest poets and writers. On Alterman and Lebron's Sean Ski. Lay. Goldberg. Alexander Penn great writers who had been young and who grew old drinking coffee in the afternoon and vodka in Iraq at night at the simple spare tables of cassette alongside these luminaries in the nineteen sixties. New Generation staked claims at the table, the actor or. The singer Oregon Stein the architect Yaakov wreck there and many others cafe California was not seat from its vantage half of long block away even the young people at seat where old carseat was yesterday's Bohemia California was today's Cafe California was founded in one, thousand, nine, hundred, thousand, nine by a man named Ab Netanyahu who was only thirty two. Then that had lived a good deal of life. Netanyahu was born in nineteen twenty seven in the southwest corner of what is now Iran in a place called Abedin on the Persian Gulf just. Across the border from Bosra not far from Kuwait at six he was sent to board at Saint. Mary's a Jesuit School in Mumbai where you had an aunt, his parents abandoned. Persia. For India when he was twelve at sixteen and Nineteen, forty three, he lied about his age and joined the Royal Indo British Air Force in time after he trained to watch the Second World War wind down at twenty one he came to fight in Israel's war of independence and never left taking a job as an El Al pilot when he was decommissioned. It was with a few restless L. Buddies that Netanyahu opened cafe. California soon, it was filled with the city's young wannabe writers, directors and poets the people most eager to knock from their sinecures the city's old writers, directors, and poets who argued and held forth at carseat. Ab Thanh was a magnet for Bohemians and he came alive when he was with Bohemians, their company produced in him at once a sense of satisfaction. He had found his people but also a sense of restlessness eighty, nine ton was in constant search of his next Gig in nineteen sixty five he ran for Knesset advice of a friend who worked in PR he pledged that if he was elected, he would fly to Egypt to meet with General Nasser to seek peace after he failed to win a seat in parliament, he anyway bought a nineteen twenty seven steer. Men by playing that, he named piece one on February twenty, eighth nineteen, sixty six, he took off and flying low to avoid Israeli radars he landed in Port Saieed the Egyptians sent him back the next day Nassar had refused to see him back home a retired David Ben Gurion told reporters that not tons trip was an event of moral and political importance and quote pope. Pious gave him a medal of peace and Robert Kennedy and Bertrand Russell sought out his company not much later the notion took hold of Natanz, that music held the key to altering. Israeli. In the summer of Nineteen Sixty Nine AB NATANZ bought a Dutch cargo ship named MVP SEATO MVP stands for motor vessel and he rechristened it the MVP piece from Holland he sailed to New York to raise money and set up a shipboard radio station. His plan was to anchor in the Mediterranean outside territorial waters of Egypt and Israel and broadcast songs of peace that might open the minds of Israelis any. Alike his sojourn to New York stretched biblically three years would pass before he returned with ship in good repair with mixers, turntables, ABC cartridge machines, reel to reel tape machines, and fifty kilowatt transmitter to help not on- by what he needed John. Lennon. And Yoko Ono signed hundreds of posters of the two of them in bed in Amsterdam their famous bet in which not on sold to raise money for audio equipment. John Lennon also offered not time yet. Rolls. Royce grads to sell at auction, but the practical impediments of shipping the grand car stymied the business, the carpenters, Johnny Mathis and other musicians recorded for non promotional clips in praise of peace. Not an idea was that new music might open minds in Israel Egypt. The station eventually began to broadcast in nineteen seventy-three as the voice of peace
"We have a lot to talk about today. None of which involves Joe Rogan. So that's why here that's why you're here. You go ahead and hang up because we're not talking about that today whatsoever. Not were not Besides that you can hear conversations about that literally anywhere else but no one's about and all by every single man however that has mouth has spoken about that other guy so or written articles about it. I challenge you all those people that are listening right now to send us some thought leadership on this situation written or spoken about by a woman other than Cara Swisher because she did talk about it on her. Show mind you. That's a Co hosted. Show but anyway go ahead but don't send it to us because we don't care we don't care but no one talking about this news worthy item which is to show better. Hori is a much better story. This this is a news. Worthy item is about the show. Call Her Daddy. Don't want anybody in the chat right now. Everybody has anybody listen to the show. Call her daddy or are you familiar with their current drama in the chat on not in the actual show? 'cause I've been down a rabbit hole rabbit holes with this show. It's a show by a twenty six and twenty seven year old women so Fia and twenty eight. I believe just their names are Sophia. Alex even co hosting the show for while they with The network Barstool sports and as little as a few weeks ago they were best friends. I don't know if they were roommates or not. I thought they were. That's why I'm like going. I wonder who's living like so anyway. Keep going they were roommates. They were friends they were there. Show is about sexual health and basically talking about who they're having sex with dating nowadays and how it all works and whatever and connects. Do how what it's like. It's kind of like love. Line you guys but without Dr drew like there is no Dr drew. It's just the other guy. What's the other guy? Adam Adam Curle but now Adam Corolla has morphed into eight twenty six and twenty seven year old girl women and they are both like Adam Corolla talking about dating and sex and random things for an hour or so because sometimes our shows are really long. So that's the vibe of what it is it's and it's sort of like I think it's kind of like our show to some degree though jess accept that were old and we don't get as Risque about talking about sex specifically well because married. People don't do that in public. That's why but that is correct Because yeah yeah so at least these two Mary. People don't do it and probably some do but we don't so they were about to sign a renew their contract with Barstool sports which was their network and then somehow everything went to Shit and there are a couple articles that will post in the show notes so that you can read the entire saga but basically they went to sign when they went to renegotiate Sophia found out that Alex was making more money than her significantly. More like fifty thousand dollars more and that is because she added the show and does the social media marketing so quietly she she either negotiated or renegotiated a different salary. Now keep in mind. One of the makes Sophia salary was like four hundred sixty six thousand a year. Alex's was like five Oh five or something like that like it. Wasn't that much difference. But it was different. Believe they've found that out in the meeting and then a little cloudy about so so then. Sophia left that meeting and got another meeting with wonder with the help of a friend that they're calling superman no not a friend a boy. Her boyfriend which I think is problem here. Boyfriend of the other girl is now knowing by yeah. He's now Yoko by setting up a meeting with wondering with with like he probably what happened is we had to guess. He buzzed and Sophie as ear. But how this should be making more money and that he could get them more money and maybe even get a commission if I guess and so he got the meeting with wondering which Alex didn't want only Sophia wanted that and then to make a very long story short not that we have to but just to sum up so guys know what we're talking about because they took that other meeting Barstool. Sports started talking about how they're greedy and hungry and ungrateful and then Sophia and Alex talk amongst themselves and realize that they were just valuing their show and what they wanted out of it differently so then Al and signed with Barstool sports without Sophia. She now has her own show called. Call Her Daddy. And Sophia does not exist in the podcasting space as of now. I guess unless she's going to do our own show wondering about summit up kind of but there was a little I mean the latest episode for. Call her daddy as of right now you guys. I don't know what number it is. You can actually hear directly from the founder of Barstool. Sports like he breaks it down all of the stuff that she just said from his point of view. So there are. It's not exactly how you mentioned it but I do appreciate you like following. It is just like some some nuances then. Also Sophia has a excuse me. Alex has a thirty plus minute video on her youtube channel where she also breaks it down step by step of how everything went down why. She made the decision that she made and she's completely transparent.

To Fight Climate Change, Bank on Soil
"Carpenter and Yoko Kamara were showing us around their tiny farm in Connecticut. It's called Asa Waga. I met Alex originally because he sells their delicious veggies at my local farmer's market and I started chatting with him and learned that he and Yoko are unusual. Not many farms are fully. No till I think no toe captures it pretty well. We really try not to disturb the soil at all. So you know we try to move the soil very very little literally pulling up a carrot to harvest it is as destructive as they get and the other thing. Yoko Alex do is. They tried to keep the ground covered. So the soil doesn't erode and carbon doesn't escape that way you don't really ever want it to be bare soil so even between plantings you want that to be as short as possible. So that's one thing and then another is to have a diversity of vegetables so my plan for next year. I'm trying to have an each bed at least two different vegetables so instead of having a better carrots you can enter cop carrots and scallions or something like that this multi vegetable farming plan. Yo called it inter cropping and it's great for a number of reasons first. The diversity of plants helps keep away weeds and pests because there aren't any huge beds of just one type of Plant Alex. Yoko don't want to spend all their time weeding and disturbing the soil. And they also don't want to be applying pesticides herbicides. Inter cropping helps with all that also having a diversity of crops means you harvest them at different times so interrupting means that even if you're pulling up one crop the other still there to help keep the ground covered plus the roots of one crop. Stand the ground even when you pull up the other up and said they keep pushing carbon into the soil and feeding microbes informing those great carbon storing clumps. You Know Wendy you see bare ground in nature It's only after a natural disaster usually so when you're tilling you're basically creating a series of natural disasters over and over as though I is the polar opposite of a natural disaster the farms in a little clearing in the forest and it is really beautiful. It's full of life. When we visited there were birds and frogs in a little caterpillar. Turning into a butterfly we walked carefully on paths between the beds that of course we wouldn't disturb the soil and we got to snack on some Chinese Broccoli right off the stock. It's so sweet. At this point I was getting serious vegetable. Nb WHEN ISO my veggies at home in my little container garden I dig a hole for the seeds or the seedlings but that disturbs the soil. Obviously so how to Alex and Yoko get their seedlings in the ground? Alex showed us this cool tool they have. It's called a paper patrons. Planter stood of growing in a plastic tray. Starting the season it we start them in A. It's like an accordion paper. Sell so then you start them. They grow and then when it's time to transplant. You put them on this and you walk backwards and he pull this and it unwinds the paper chain and puts it in the ground for you. The paper bought transplant. Carves out a narrow space in the soil and just lays the seedlings right in there but wouldn't the ground be covered with all those great living in crop plants. Where's their space for the new crops? That's the tricky part on notes L. But there's a few ways around this problem. Yoko told us that some of the plants they put in as cover crops get killed naturally by frost and turn into Mulch so that's great for if we need to put a plantain early in the season next year. 'cause it's going to be dead already. There's no need to kill it. The ride that were sewing now. That's not gonNA Winter Kill and by. May It's just GONNA be Super Tall. So what farmers do is they cramp down. I mean it's just as simple as just pushing it down. Alex and Yuko have a tool. That does that crimping and just pushes the plants down and then their space for the new crop some farms that are lower no till just kill the cover crops using herbicide which seems to not be the greatest solution. Alexandra coup still. There are clearly ways to farm without disturbing the soil. But here's my question isn't the whole point of our whole system of agriculture. That annuals need disturbed soil or at least really prefer. It necessarily prefer it as much as they are very opportunistic and when there is a disturbed ground they kind of like leap on it and they're like on the first one there. Yuko says annual plants might take advantage of disturbed soils but they do just mind an undisturbed soils to and anyway annual plants like Broccoli and tomatoes and peppers. Do love good nutritious soil and carbon rich soil. Certainly is that okay? At this point I was about to sign up for the cult of no till Alex Coca. We're making it sound so sensible and so simple. But Tim and asthma told us. It isn't quite as easy as all that it is among the most sophisticated in challenging and dicey in some ways methods of agriculture. Because a lot of things have to line up in terms of the weather in terms of getting out there to do the work so that you don't miss a window that's critical in organic no till the implementation of it is very challenging no I. It's definitely intensive in terms of labor and management that has to go in not just intensive. But also you'd require knowledge of how to manage soils in these sustainable waste and so it's definitely not necessarily as easy as intensive production systems but I think the number of farmers that are practicing regenerative. Agriculture keeps growing. And that's a demonstration that it's doable. It's probably more labor intensive Will it's different intensity? It's a totally different way of thinking about it. And I think for a lot of farms that have learned conventionally. It's not easy to switch the entire way that you think about a system. So is it more work. I don't know if it is. I think that over time it gets to be less work actually are inputs become less. Were not working. The soil We we'd in June. We read very minimally and Alex told us they take off each winter. They go away often to Japan. Where Yukos from so? That's pretty nice. Of course the rest of the year is kind of full on nonstop work at the two of them on the farm and they do literally everything and they both say it's not easier maybe even possible on a bigger form you know I think There's a big benefit for us having a small farm because when I just explained to you micro plan for next year having inter cropping almost every vegetable. That's really hard man as I. I don't even know how we're going to share but yeah I think I don't know what the scale ability is but it would be amazing if there could be a lot of small farms rather than very handful of large farms of course if Yoga's dream of lots of small farms were to become a reality that would mean. We need a lot more farmers than we have right now and there are all sorts of challenges and roadblocks to making that happen. The other thing is that Yoko and Alex growing veggies that Asa Ouaga veggies are something we could all use more of but really our diet is built on a few commodity crops big fields of wheat and corn and soy so canot till work for those crops to. There are a pretty amazing group of of growers in the Mid West. Especially who are practicing no till but with a great deal of cover crop implementation cover crop cocktails and only periodically using herbicides. So they're not what nozzle heads where they're just spraying spring there judiciously hitting cropped just to break a cycle after maybe two years even and then resewing and in my mind that in terms of managing a broad landscape is very
