Ask Geoffrey: Chicago's Old Passenger Rail Stations
"Chicago's old passenger railroad stations for decades acted as the city's front door where people from all over the country arrived seeking a better life or just the thrills of the big city. Jeffrey bayer takes us back to the golden age. Rail travel in this week's ask geoffrey. Hey geoffrey good to see you paris all right so we have a question from larry gardner of skokie he says. Could you do a story on the old train stations that once stood in downtown chicago. Well of course we can. There is as you mentioned. The the late nineteenth century the early twentieth century this was the golden age of rail travel when people traversed the country on trains. And of course right at the center there at the hub of it all was chicago. It's hard to believe. But as recently as the nineteen sixties there were six passenger train stations in downtown chicago today. All passenger trains that come into the city from beyond the suburbs. Go through the last one standing union station which is now owned by amtrak. It's designed including this now. Demolished concourse was right along the river there and the colonnaded main building which is still standing right behind it. In this picture of those things recall the grandeur of rail terminals in those glory days of designed to wow the traveler of the way many airports do today met with. Certainly the goal of another neoclassical designed terminal. Check this one out owned by the chicago and north western railway you know classical buzzards and it stood at what is today. Ogilvie transportation center which is operated by metra. That station included ornate concourses. Waiting rooms even dedicated spaces for barbers and hairdressers. People traveling across the country The chicago north western railway traced its roots to chicago's very first railroad. The galena chicago union established back in eighteen forty eight. By chicago's first mayor actually will be ogden. Certainly the golden age of travel there and then another key player. Of course you hear references pop culture all the time the illinois central oh absolutely That country that company billed itself as the main line of mid america. It was a dominant player. Both in passenger and freight rail their main passenger terminal was called central station once stood just just south of grand part right on the lakefront there. The railroad built this mammoth terminal in one thousand nine hundred three in part to accommodate the influx of visitors. That were expected for the world's fair that year you'll notice almost all of these terminals have clocks or clock towers so people hurrying to catch trains didn't have to fumble around for their pocket watches that of course they had watches it. All central station was also an important point of entry for many african americans who came to chicago from the south during the great migration with like so many of its contemporaries central station met the wrecking ball. In this case in the mid one thousand nine hundred seventy s amtrak diverted there trains to union station but there is still an active platform. Eleven street serving the metra electric line and i gather it's the inspiration for that residential development around their central station. Which i believe. Richard m daley lived there for a while and not to be confused with grand central station. Of course right. That's right and yes. We had our own grand central station. here in chicago. Not new york's wasn't the only one ours was at harrison and wells on the western edge of the loop. Read along the river for about eighty years. It was just north of if you know we're river city's development is today Traffic declined grand central after world war. Two this photo with the board of trade there in the background was taken in nineteen sixty seven at the end of the stations life. It was torn down in nineteen seventy one and this is one of several places in the city. were abandoned. Railroad land is being redeveloped during construction of the new development on this old site buried. Stones from grand central station were actually unearthed and they've been re purposed for a river walk. One chicago train station of actually is still standing So in addition to union station is dearborn station. South loop although of course. It's on train station anymore. You can see its clock tower visible all the way from the north side of lube looking south down on dearborn but what happened to the top of that clock tower. Take a look at this early photo. And you'll notice it once had this huge wooden flemish roof on top of it but in one thousand nine hundred twenty two. It caught fire. Look at these incredible photos from the scene as crowds gathered. Luckily firefighters were able to save the building. But but not that tower roof. I the nineteen seventy s. Most of the train. Shed was demolished but the facade and portions of the terminal were preserved as part of a mall. Serving printers row by the building is still called dearborn station. In fact peres as you just pointed out. Many old stations live on in the names of new developments of the one. You mentioned central station. Just south of grand park word. Mayor daley used to live and then a new apartment building at harrison and wells is using the grim central name

"We came in at Union Station on an Amtrak train and we moved over near Slauson in Venice. That kind of intersected with my earliest memory is because you know, you start remembering things around 3.5 before or what? Not, and so my impressions of neighborhood just walking around and you know, I vividly remember just walking to the store with my sisters. You know, that's something that stuck. You know the way that I've I've kind of executed my photographic portfolios. Each neighborhood I've lived in. I've kind of gone back to and I've kind of tried to, you know, see what it's like, now or documented as it is, because things change so much, so I've you know, I've covered Hollywood. Of course I've covered Mid city. I've covered a lot of Koreatown. But I decided to revisit the limerick, part Crenshaw District area or, you know, control area in general, because, you know, being black in Los Angeles that place just that entire area has always had a a giant cultural significance for me. And I've always felt like the pole of just the art, the music, everything that came out of that area, so I felt it was important to documented as it is because things are changing pretty rapidly with with everything that's going on in the city, right? And so that's a racing history and re creating it and re creating, I guess a new history. And, um, do you do you come at it with any kind of sadness or more of kind of an investigative Approach. While it's a combination of both, because, you know, although my landscapes, you know, kind of as you framed it, you know, although May landscapes don't have a lot of people. A lot of it is pretty personal, because there's a lot of memories and you know in these areas and, um, you know, for the places that I don't have a direct connection to maybe a place where I didn't live, But you know, I I visited a lot or always had a curiosity. With, you know, I go in with him or investigative anymore, You know, documentary approach. I really trying not to have an agenda, and I really try not to frame things in any certain way. I really you know, And that's why I walk. I don't drive from place to place. You know, I'll park in the neighborhood and just walk through it for a couple hours because you really need that kind of sense of quiet and you need that that sense of place toe. Really, you know, for at least for me for these things to start to kind of, like one to me in terms of things that catch my eye or the way I like to frame it, I just I like to present it in a way that someone from the neighborhood or someone who lives there would appreciate or at least recognize, as as not, you know, someone coming in and having you know this thought or that thought about where they live. And I guess it's especially poignant Now, when a lot of these places are shut down. A lot of these stores are boarded up and shut down. And who knows if they'll ever re open? Absolutely it Z, you know, around the city, particularly in what I mean, I wouldn't even say particularly, and you know the limerick part or control area, But I would say in Los Angeles in general, I mean the scars of the pandemic on the landscape are are extensive. When you get to focusing on communities of color, you know whether that's like East Hollywood or limber part you can see the stars everywhere. You know, you can see these boarded up businesses. You can see these mom and pop. You know, storefronts that are just are going and they kind of been left out to dry, You know? Yeah, In a lot of ways, it is kind of documenting the landscape as it is because it tells a story and you know Did a lot of other photographers and a lot of other artists that are documenting. You know these places on a more personal level that do involve people and the stories and getting the whole getting a first, a firsthand account of what's going on in the area. But I think for me bringing it visually, just so there's something you know that record has always been really important. All right. Thank you.

So they have the opportunity to take the experience that i had working with other professional associations and apply to design professional organization was a really big draw for me. My background is really been coming into organizations to try to help pivot in move from what has been to build a better future of what can be so. I saw an opportunity. Here with edgy. A. and space to help the organization expand along with the design professional expanding right. You can't have the profession expand the professional organization stay the same. So what does an average day look like for you. You said earlier you were in new york. Now you're back in. Dc what does it look like running this organization like this remotely. The first couple of weeks. The average day was starting off monday mornings hopping on the train. Amtrak in heading from dc union station to tribeca new york and spending the bulk of the week. They're meeting a connecting with design leaders and professionals on students having meetings and getting acclimated to the organization. So that was about two months of that kind of back and forth. After we went into fool states that you can imagine of and we all have kind of lived through our pandemic this became. How do we think about the organization in physically from running from my living room. Dining room the favourite corner in my house right in and it quickly became. It wasn't a question of where. I was physically but using the tools and the opportunity to bring together our team to deliver and build for our profession. You know how do we deliver our mission. Yes we're used to being in office spaces in traveling. But what can we do more dynamic way. What's really nice about edgy. A is we were already positioning ourselves to be more virtual part of even my being able to come in at the role i lived in. Dc and so having ceo who is not based in the office was deliberate point for the organization as we stands right now only about sixty to sixty five percent of my team is located in new york the rest of the distributed across the country. And i think that's an incredible opportunity in advantage for us. And i think there's probably important to note here because when people think of aig a they think of the chapters. Each of those chapters has their own kind of bored and everything. Those are not employees of lateral organization. Itself is pretty small right. Those are nine employees so we are what you know. Many people haven't had experience with but we are federated model and it's very common in professional associations and spaces we all exist under a core mission in brand right that his asia but we're network community so we have seventy five chapters who are individual chapters. They have their own. Bores volunteer leaders were connected with them but they're connected through affiliation and grew an overall network to larger aig a mission brand. We also have two hundred student chapters across colleges and universities so the power of a federated model is just that you have this connection to community at a really directing granular level. But you're tied together in the national office in which i lead gets to serve as really kind of the infrastructure and the backbone organization that at its heart in all of the chapters and the student groups and are forced to be to do that work that they get

Reasons Everyone Should Visit Houston
"Should someone come to houston. texas acetate. don't really think about houston all about when they hear houston is a space center. Houston actually has i think. It's supposedly had the most restaurants per capita so there's a lot of food here. It has a really good population mix because of his proximity to mexico. You get what's called tex-mex which is a kind of mikla. Mr for mexican in texas food i guess or american footprint is quite good and there's also other large ethnic populations here so you'll find Didn't population here and there is actually some folks from other african dies poorer. That's here as well. There's really lot more to do than people think plus is all the major sports teams are here so there is quite a bit to do that. They just don't think about and all day but think about it's a space center but that's just one thing that you can do houston. I cannot verify the top ten restaurants per capita in the. Us list does not seem to have. Although strangely enough it does hit my hometown of san jose california issue. San francisco is being number one which i believe. 'cause nobody there cooks but guess. What would you recommend that somebody do when they come to houston. I actually have a huge list of things that people can do. I was bored one day and came up with. I think about forty five three things that you can do in houston for different free things. Yes no shortage of things to do in houston itself. Museum district is actually very large. Most people that come to houston they are here for oil because those are the Ahead of his hair they also come down for the medical center and when united was based here it might have been the largest employer at the time but i don't case anymore so there is a slew of museums at least eighteen or sally's eighteen free ones. Anyway we also have a lot of parks like any large city and because there's so much oil. Many in houston is a lot of people giving money to the parks into the parks action. A very well developed than really. Well kept. Well as i told you ahead of time. I'm gonna get you into more specifics. So okay where should we start all right. So can we talk about transportations. Says the airline guy. Alan guy right. He said has to year. Boy says a hobby airport. Which up until a few. I guess last week was dominated by south west but then southwest is now going to have flight sida houston intercontinental airport and in the continent airports named after george bush. Not the son but the father although the bush's actually live here in houston so transportation wise And they are actually connected to the city but by buses. Everybody drives in. Houston if you come the best thing for you to do if you really want to get around the city. I guess efficiently is to rent a car. There is a local bus service that it was like one or two that comes from it takes about him and only cost dollar twenty five cents to get from houston intercontinental downtown houston and then there is the eighty eight. I think it is now that goes from houston hobby into downtown houston and methodology and a quarter. But i would recommend getting a car because it's so easy to city is very large and getting a car is probably the best way to get around and then we're going to start. We can actually start downtown so once you get your car. You're jumping forty five and you head south into into downtown as you're driving into downtown you can see the city if you want. You can stay out by the airports airports Tells around there but if you come into houston you might as well come. Stay in the city center. You can stay downtown. Houston they have all all the major chains they here. There is actually a myriad married which has the pool in the shape of texas. So yeah i haven't gone there yet but it's actually quite cool. I've seen pictures of it and there's also the hilton which is across georgia. Lebron's convention thinkers houston is a big convention city when they have cooled show which these things anymore but when they used to have the show. You could not find a hotel room in houston and the city is about. I think we're up to seven and a half million people in houston. It is the fourth largest city in the union. So i would actually get downtown. i once. you're downtown There is discovery green and discovered green is actually a park. And it's right by the georgia brown Any literally sits between the myra one side and the hilton on the other side and off to the left of that is the minute maid park which is where the baseball team. The houston astros place. Now if one thing about maid park is if you're into trains and says very old city if you go to most of us cities you'll find a union station right right and most of them are still being used as stations while the one in houston is not it is now where when you go to the astros. That is the hall big hall that you normally have for stations. Dave turned that into the entrance to the ballpark.

Max. Ah, let's Ah let's let's talk about Ah The blue color sort of mentality that we have in this city eyes that tied to the labour movement, you think? Yeah mean absolutely. I think that you know, you think about whether it's images presented in film. It's the Blues brothers, which obviously they're musicians. They do They do reference their union card. That will not be a one point them. Yeah, they D'oh They famously on wonderfully, You know, I think it is. It's a It's a part of. It's a part of the city's identity. And you know, I I e having only been been in here since the mid nineties. You know, a lot of that has changed. Fairly quickly. Do you think about what constitutes a blue collar job? Right? You go down to the Southeast side to see the U. S X Steel. You know they're still re working on that site. But there's no there's no labours. It's a park. Yes, yeah, Among other things you think of what constitutes A blue collar job. You think of kind of the concentration of steps over, um, near last Westside like Teamster City. Um and kind of like, where is those where those people laboring? You think about the actual numbers and they're they're fairly small. Um, you know you you still you still have, you know certain? Industries in the city. You know, I always tell people sick I owe still big bass for food production produces more pork rinds, and I didn't know that I didn't know that that's amazing.

Rocks, but they blow up the Brocks factory for one of the Batman am so some of those things that you consider candy, working blue collar and definitely were people working with their hands. But you know, the other kind of The other Those other jobs. A lot of them just changed. I think this will be a challenge for labor here. Going forward labor unions and see already you're you're you're not. You're not, you know, leaping out Citing necessarily been this government lack of intervention. Too much intervention. But you know, he going up against algorithms. You know what do you you're going up against APS. Yeah, that's that's the kind of That's the kind of harder endure another show, But I think that but I think it is. You know people were we seek it out. I mean, people wanted, you know, they want to experience that kind of That blue collar kind of experience, And I think it's hard. I mean, I know it's harder to find. Yeah, you know, you think about kind of whether its associations with people going to a tavern or whatever, you know 2nd 3rd shifters. I mean, there's a lot of There's a lot of change, even the kind of those the social spaces right now you're more likely to find expensive tasting menus on up top bar That's open. So I think there's that there's that kind of shift in the change and declined those in those those professions or they or they happen. They're kind of their hidden from us, right? I always tell people I play some fascinating which you asked me kind of that question about there's always something new. I had never walked on foot around Elk Grove Village.

Various interested, but you know, we don't really see it. You know, it's not, you know. Men and women out there. You know whether it's your kind of performing manual labor, physical labor, you know, I think the fabric of the city has changed much as well. You think about you know, over a third of the city is Hispanic, Latino land Next, you know that that work has changed a lot. To you know, you might think of blue collar workers being landscapers gardeners. Um, yeah, I know people crave it. I mean, people, you know, it's such a big thing. And you know this so well to three movies to song. Um And you know some industries. It's still their food processing and a few other places, but, you know Now Steele still encounter people I've still encounter people who want to want to see a stillness still now something like that. It's like, well, that's that's really hard to find in the city limits. Um, but there certainly people You know those people working his people? There's people out there doing all these jobs and I think of wealth building trades, You know. So those air still really, um Those were still really well, boss places where he might be worked like that. But those things that you think of, you know, if you know more stockyards. Steel mills is kind of you know, you can sort of see some of the railroad stuff if you go down to South Lumber Street after from railroad. Yeah, Maybe that might be trash passing. So don't Please don't want anyone thinking, right? But you're certainly you know, you could get a little sense of that when you know when I was in Union station two days ago, jumping on the Amtrak cone off one and try again. Young. You see, you know some people people doing track work inside the station and things like that, so it's still It's still there. There's just a lot less of it. Yeah, it's true. It's true, but I mean, I think to the rest of the rest of the world. Chicago has a very, very blue collar. You know? Ah, representation, You know, I think it's a date. I think people outside of Chicago think of us is a very blue collar city. Yeah. Oh, absolutely. I think there's that people identify. It was like they had identified with the You know the blues or kind of Maureen.

Union Station office building opens it could be combined with the other buildings you just mentioned it could be about twenty two to twenty three thousand new jobs in that area so that's the equivalent of you know a bowl sellout plus a few people and so it's a huge impact in that small area but the other trend that that's been happening in real estate is a lot of new buildings have been built with significantly less parking then there's been in in near the previous building or in the area I mean it's it's tough around there anyway yeah I was trying to greet town the other day and driver right pass and I thought holy mackerel this that I was reading a piece and I thought this is gonna be a really bad so I I see bank of America they they funded this and citizens bank but it's going to be named the BMO tower so I assume most of money comes from be a mall and then I read that the Australians we had to go to Australia to get funding yeah that's not uncommon it's a it's a huge pension fund in Australia is investing in in the project which is fairly common place for a big new office building like that but the yeah the lenders are beam which is the anchor tenant and then a couple other banks and usually for a construction loan of that size almost five hundred million dollars control is going to be there that that's fifty stories and they they have seventy seven hundred employees here in Illinois but still there's been a lot of vacancy are they looking for other but a signature tenants I assume yeah they're still looking for other tenants you know this bell had a alibi out there you know that female is committed to a third of the one point five million square feet that's enough pre leasing that to you know get a project financed and started and now they've got a couple years of construction work I just tried to arrest Ryan or in the Chicago Tribune this is adjacent to Union Station does have anything to do with union station which is run by Amtrak but a lot of politicians and even citizens think that really measure should run Union Station any update on Union Station the gray lady herself yeah well so this this is part of this is part of an overall redo you know of Union Station and there are some other aspects of this they're gonna happen but in this in this up for the office building they they sold the property to these developers parking garage the parking garage the parking garage is being demolished so that's where this office towers going to go so it will be part of Union Station when they redo Union Station yet I I hope they're gonna leave the steps where the famous scene from the untouchables happen I hope those steps alone yeah I can't imagine anybody ever touching those those are pretty iconic sure be into the office building is done by separate developer but it will be connected underground to the rest of the rest of property and they'll almost function as you know at that below ground level as part of the same property but have the Amtrak and others are also redeveloping the actual Union Station had some different things to all right well thanks for your time we appreciate it will point out the article tore listers and I haven't heard we can Sir same to you okay so Union Station a new fifty story tower adjacent the venomous of the steps seconds to make up your mind we got on yeah she taken back to the amending of the snap sort of a stipulation federally hand here in Illinois Robert would like to come in Sir thanks for your patience go ahead hello Robert how I agree completely very concise well said thank you Sir coming up as promised not one but two great warm Christmas stories and an update on your bears in your Blackhawks forth with taking a look at W.

"Whole of Union Station in Washington D C, which is the place to have an event beautiful beautiful structure, and the this is GAO. So you make some very very exciting announcements. Would you share those with all this here in America? I sure so this past November we were able to announce at our gala that the government of Poland donated ten million dollars towards our museum project. So one government ten one government ten million. And of course, from that from their perspective. The museum is going to be telling very important part of their national story. So you'll have you'll preparing to build a museum in DC. Tried it spend the long standing goal. All of the foundation to build a museum in Washington DC that would tell the story more than one hundred years more than forty countries. And of course, the story of one of the largest victim groups if not the largest victim group in the history of the world. And that's of course, those individuals those families those entire nation sometimes that were subjected to captivity slavery all manners of atrocities by political parties communist parties that trace their origin their DNA to the Bolshevik party in in Russia from nineteen seventeen because all of those regimes where of course, either trained inspired funded or directed by the Soviet Union. And it'll be a hub of international learning education memory about communism about socialism about the ideology of Marxism. But also the history the record. And some of the human rights challenges that we face today in the world's remaining five communist single party dictatorships, and that's in China, North Korea Laos, Vietnam and Cuba. And then of course, you know, developments from Crimea and eastern Ukraine to Hong Kong to Venezuela in Nicaragua show that just geographically and that that's at least one good measure geographically territorially the free world is literally shrinking in the first nineteen years of this century. And so we have to learn I think some of the lessons from the Cold War about how we can effectively come back the ideas, but also the material threats posed by communist parties in power. Otherwise, the twenty first century is going to look very different than it. Would if American leadership continued to foster the free enterprise rule of law system that we've mostly enjoyed in the free world since the Soviet Union collapsed in the last one that we have in this segment. What is your hope with the museum is your hope that all the former captive nations will contribute, perhaps some western nations? The winners of the Cold War will also be spending some money to help support you'll museum that is the hope and we've had a number of countries who either have already pledged given were are talking with us right now. Right. And of course, you know, the majority of the money will come from private individuals and companies and foundations at the end of the day. We're we're reminding ourselves of the role that we played confronting communist imperialism the. Entire idea of American leadership in the world, the entire idea of the free world versus the communist world, all of this was the result of America defending our values and our people against the threat of Taliban. Well, one of the most important institutions in this city. I think in the world is the holocaust museum, which is incredibly for those listeners who haven't visited Washington DC to see the holocaust museum, I strongly strongly urge you to do. So. It is it is the motion experience. It's powerful experience. How apt for that to be in this city as well? A similar experience that looks to all the black book of communism as you said is very clear more than one hundred million Shuman souls extinguished since nineteen seventeen just over one hundred years in the name of quote, unquote, quality injustice in the name of Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels. So not only must be remember role in winning that war. But we must never forget the countless souls lost. And also thank you for reminding us this isn't history. This is right now North Korea one of the most Stalinist regimes the world has ever seen, and it is still Cuba still has political prisoners on on on we all talking about and Smith executive director of the victims of. Muniz memorial foundation. Follow them at veto as victims of the communism on Twitter, and they website is victims of communism dot org difference. Kyle is any activity that, you know, I'll take in because it causes you pain.

He's breathing the mountain air or maybe down by the beach, or he's most of all he's up in a jet airplane is Johnny Jeter traveled guy who lives to travel. Hello, johnny. Leo. Johnny jet dot com. I just got back from lost wages. Yeah. Curious because I'm going in a week or two where you stand. Well, we haven't decided yet. But I was looking at the MGM park. That's where we stayed the park. MGM is nice if they took the Monte Carlo rebuilt it the top three floors are nonsmoking. It's the it's it's a New York chain called a nomad runs it, and I liked it. It was really nice hardwood floors per or Asian oriental carpets Persian carpets beautiful, photography and art on the walls. I mean, it's still a Vegas hotel room service and hour and a half. But other. But you know, these hotels are so big. But I like, and I love the city centre location. I think that that is a nice location, and yes, you ask him about Italy. Which when I when I read about I thought, well, this is lane. This is just another food court with an Italian focus. Oh, no. It's like you're in Italy. I mean, they have a wine bar. They have a saloon Mary where you get the Salamis and pursued. Oh, and what's avail and beautiful Italians in Krispies? It's it's not. It's very upscale. Very nice. I might need to look for sure. In LA. I love it in New York City in a nomad section of New York City. Well, I assume why they call it. The top three floors nomad. Yeah. Oh, that's interesting in Toronto. And Chicago, I didn't realize he was all over. Okay. Yeah. Actually, I think they have in Rome, which I have not been a clever idea because it isn't a food. That's borrow. It's not a food court. It's upscale Italian food. But you know, there's a pasta bar, and there's there's all different your store. Yeah. This grocery the bread. Oh, man. Yeah. I'm regaining wages listening to you. And of course, the best part, and I love going to Vegas to see. The shows is lady Gaga in a two year residency at the at the park, and she just opened about two weeks ago. It's a great show. We saw the shares are coming in next month. Yeah. My mother-in-law's birthday is coming up never been to Vegas that. We were gonna take. All man. What fun Vegas has changed just gone through these phases? Because I'm a going there for thirty years could because of the trade shows, and it was kinda dumpy downmarket. And then then they remember they wanna become a family place right brand, Jack. And then they realized no one goes to sin city to be a family vacation. So they they changed their slogan to what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. And they got a little more adult little sexier, a little more, fun and great restaurants. I really had a good time. I I've completely turned around. I used to say, oh, please don't make me go to Vegas. And now, I love it. I wanna go back the good, although looking kind of chilly there but nobody's outside. You can go for days and never step foot outside. That's true. But but the Monte Carlo MGM park. Yes. The connected. It's all Canadians on that tramway dot the monorail. Be. There's all the MGM properties. All the MGM properties affected. Aria MGM seems to own almost the entire center of the strip and you got your EMMY award points. We got the mlive card baby. That's right. Yeah. Good. Yep. Yep. Well before we get started. There's some really good airfare deals that I have to mention okay. I mean, it's insane to Australia right now. Virgin Australia from LA five. Oh, two to Brisbane from New York. City to Sydney is five eighty two on American round trip. Qantas has a deal from Dallas to Auckland New Zealand for seven forty seven. Although that's on a three eighty by the way, that's one of the longest lights in the world that the actually sorry Dallas is Sydney is one eight three eight. So you're you're making a stop on this Qantas flight your flight making a stop in LA. But anyway, there's some really good deals everywhere. Tokyo, you can go to Tokyo six fifty. If you're if you want to travel, now's it's time to start looking at some really good because it's winter in the northern hemisphere, and it's just like people aren't traveling as much. That's one good reason. But it's a great time to go to straight because it's you know, it's a little hot down there. Yes. Yeah. Five forty five round trip from Phoenix to Melbourne. I mean, that's amazing. I love Australia. What a great country fund Japan. American Airlines is really deal to Tokyo Japan. Six fifty round trip from. Five twenty five. So those those are my it's my pleasure to get people out and see the world because as I said before as corny as it sounds. I truly believe the more people that travel internationally, the less prejudices. There will be in the world. I just say see the world now while it's still available. Hey, maybe closing soon. So go before it closes you'll you'll be glad. So last week. I mentioned my TSA app for going through security in the US. Well, what are your listeners or or my readers set me actually, a tweet saying, you know, there's a Canadian version, which is why I'm wearing my Canadian sweatshirt that my wife bought me you're going to have never worn it until now. Oh, good time of deal it. Yes. But they have they have an equivalent. So it's called CAT essay, so California TSA basically extends for Canadian air transport security authority. So it's freon. An Android, and it's similar to the US version. Although I don't believe there's our historical data. I think it's actually real live with what the actual wait times are any do a better job listing the airports I've just put in Toronto. And it shows every checkpoint. You know, the the mighty say when it shows by the terminals, but doesn't show by the checkpoint. So I really liked that also it just like the USA the mighty essay one. It's tells you what you can bring so. It also helps you people who are not used to cruising through security. I highly recommend checking out actually called the breeze through security mobile love it. Just call Canadian. Security. So I love it. But also if you are going to Canada, get nexus any ex US and you'll really breeze through immigration, and then you can go through their equivalent to TSA pre. It's it's fifty dollars for five years. And then it will come with global entry NTSB pre. So that's the secret. But the one downside is that you do need to go usually to a meeting to have an interview, and it has to be in Canada or choosy right on the border like Seattle, buffalo or Niagara Falls. They're actually that's the one. I did my interview with the false bride the maid of the mist right now. I think they're frozen are the the fuss frozen. They might be from. Sports X. Wow. That's something to see when it's frozen. Like that thing I've seen at once before I'm not tempted. I'll be honest with you. I'm gonna stay right here in California. It sounded so cold. So. Ninety minutes. I second ninety seconds ninety seconds. I got ninety minutes. You get the big game is this weekend. ESPN recently came out with a big story actually have the tweet it because it's a long your L. But it says the you the best and we're stadium foods in North America food safety. So it was outside the line story, and it actually they did food safety inspections of all eleven North American pro sports venue Atlantic come out. I just look that up in. It's actually hasn't been that. So hot. No, it's a brand new stadium. Okay. So they did not test that one because I guess that. They did a study last year. What? What's lurking in your stadium food? And one of the great things about traveling when I travel I love to go to a pro sports game two. That's one of my goals when at least when I retire we want to hit all the NFL stadiums. I've been many of the baseball stadiums. It'd would be really fun. I've been I think I've been the seventeen baseball stadium is nice and I've been to the Super Bowl a couple times. That's really fun thing. We did that New Orleans that was so much fun. Johnny jet. He's traveling guy go to Johnny jet dot com. And and don't eat the food there though, because.

"Make your way outside of Union Station airs thick with dust. Stop lights are out. Traffic is jammed and it's loud. The people who ran when the earthquake hit or laying on the ground injured and they're holding their broken legs and twisted ankles. An aftershock hits. So we wanted to put people in the heart of that scenario and show him what it's going to be like, so they know what to prepare for. So even if people know on some level that this event could happen in the immediate future. But certainly in their lifetimes, they don't do enough to prepare for it. So what prevents people from not taking the next step and saying I need to do these five things before this happens. We have this thing called optimism. Right. And we actually have a whole episode episode eight we cover this at length. We developed optimism at the same time as we developed a sense of mortality that way. We get into cars. Even though we know that situation could be dangerous, but that same optimism is what keeps us from preparing. So I don't want to be a spoiler. But in the second episode comes out Jacob that you have very limited. If any earthquake preparedness at your own homes that fair statement. Not anymore. Okay. You're doing this at the time. I was doing it. Yes. When we were recording episode to that was absolutely true. My wife, and I had a very a come to Jesus moment about what our plan was. We have a new baby. So we have to kind of factor that in by episode seven, which is when we start to address this issue, you building a survival kit for my family, I still hadn't anything which was kind of crazy, and we get to dive deep into the psychology of why people don't do it. That was really fascinating. And applying it to myself, I thought was kind of disturbing in nineteen ninety two. And there was a seven point three magnitude earthquake out near yucca valley Landers quake, and I drove out there because I was assigned to cover the news. There was one immediate fatality from that earthquake. It was a three year old boy who is over I slumber party and masonry fell off a chimney and fell on his head. And because I was reporting I went to the coroner's office. And I saw the polaroid photograph of a sleeping bag and the bricks and the blood, and I didn't have kids at that point. But when I had kids, I did everything everything in our houses anchor down, and it was that one image that I always remembered is that part of what you're going after that idea of you put yourself in the story and visualize it that you then start to do something. Yeah. We want something people can hold onto you. I want you to really put yourself in the situation where imagine you have to walk fifteen miles a really common commute in Los Angeles. Imagine having to walk that home, and what you're going to see. So we want to put you in that situation to prepare you. So when these things do happen, you're a little bit more familiar, and maybe a little bit less afraid that was very similar to my turning point. And it wasn't that gruesome in that difficult, but we had someone visit our house and lay out here all the problems that I see your kid, by the way is just getting up and starting to walk and we'd just yanked his dresser a little bit. That thing was ready to topple right over. And I could just imagine him getting very hurt by that. And I was freaked out. Out. And so soon thereafter, we kind of went through and dealt with all that you have clearly worked very hard to make sure that the listener is kind of embedded in this story through a lot of the things that you do both musically. And just the way that the sound is coming at you. Why was that important? And what does that do in terms of the way the information that you're imparting listener is received one? I love sound design and I love action movies. So I wanted to create this immersive experience in sound is so powerful in doing that. It's one thing to say an ambulance is going to pass you by it's another thing to hear it happening. It's another thing to hear masonry crumbling and to have.
