The Prison Music Project
"I'm really excited just to sort of bounce between the three of you I might. Wow so powerful. So amazing just a such an awesome I can't wait to kind of deconstruct the story in the story behind it with you. Don't WanNa Kinda get off with you. It probably makes sense it just Kinda like dive into. Before you start actually even showing up at folsom before any of this happened what were you up to sounds like you were you were out in the world doing work as singer Songwriter Jimmy certainly the picture of your world before then I twenty five. So I don't know what? Like twenty, five year old singer-songwriter folksinger. To sort of starting my career I quit this band that I was in with my called vermillion lies and we were like this Vaudeville, very theatrical cabaret. It was in that that cabaret renaissance that happened with dressed in dolls and all of that world we're in that. World and then a I quit that band with my sister and then started doing my own thing and right around the same time I started going into the prison. So I had just really started playing my solo music out in the world when I brought it into new folsom. Yeah. What was at that point in your life? What was music to you or for you if fell lied In. It still feels like it has always felt like as soon as I found it, it was like Oh. Yeah. I can't not make this. This is not a choice I'm making this just pours out of me. I'm GonNa, make it whether I share it with people or not but turns out I really love to share it with people. But at the time. I really wanted to write about things outside of myself. Social issues, political issues. Environmental issues and I never really could figure out. How to do it in a way that felt good it always felt contrived or luxury or. Yeah it fell way to able for sure somehow way more vulnerable than singing about my broken heart. Amen to that. Political songs hard. So hard I was working in the prison and working on those songs that brought me to that over many years took a long time for me to be able to write my own collaborating with folks who I mean it's You know folks who are impacted by incarceration, just their lives and their own stories are. You know it's like a social issue because. Incarceration as a social issue. So just writing about their own experience. It is a political song. So being a part of this collaboration, I think opened that door for me which. Were And Zoe were you on each other's radar at that point or like you kind of just doing a shepherd things any awareness of each other or did that happen later on I mean I certainly knew who she was. I did not know who so he was yet. Until she walked into my living room. Yeah. That was a bunch of years later. Yeah. So you end up going to new FOLSOM, which for those who don't know what that is described, what was it, and when you're showing up on the first day, what do you think that you're going there to do? What do you think your commitment is I'm going there to play three concerts? Yes. So new folsom prison, that's this nickname. The official name is California State Prison Sacramento. and. It's right next to the famous folsom prison, which has lower security new folsom is Neil. It's a newer, very plain looking concrete. Facility three buildings three yards houses about three thousand people. Non consensually. And it's a men's prison the as hopefully most listeners know. The prison system, the criminal justice system Miss, genders people a lot. So there were women trans. Women inside the as well. So I just want to mention that when I call it a men's prison. Yeah, and I was there, I committed to playing three concerts and I'd heard about them in advance. Through the person who who ran the program there he brought in artists to perform and teach workshops and stuff, and so I was there to perform and I was gonNA play in a library. To libraries on two separate yards, and then the one concert we were in contact for a few months before I went in an every couple of weeks he'd email me like are you sure you WanNa do this one concert? This is the one for men in solitary confinement. Are you sure you WanNa do this one it's really intense. and. it will never been one to. Shy away from something That might be yeah like emotionally challenging or. I don't want to hide a reality from myself a reality of our. Society I WANNA see it all even if it's ugly maybe especially if it's ugly because I wanNA know. What we're up against I, want to know why we're fighting and to be able to see it and experience it in that way. Yeah it is intense, but it's helpful. So I said, yes. Even I kept checking in and I kept thinking you're asking me again if I really WanNa do this one concert. Okay. So yeah, that's I. I didn't know really what to expect even though he told me but it's different to hear. To hear him describe it in. He told me you know you're going to be playing for these. People in cages, they'll be in these little cages when you play for them in this little room. And I just. It doesn't matter how much you hear a description of that seeing is. Totally different thing I mean. You know how you feel when you see an animal in a cage. It's a human being so it's just like ample. You know when you go to the zoo and you're like man I'm really sad. Well, you can identify with a human way more than you can identify with an animal and it's just like. I mean I think it's a yeah it's I. Think it's traumatizing to be in that environment even when you're not the person who's being. Caged and so I think about. Prison staff to just anyone who has to be in an environment where that level of dehumanisation is happening on a daily basis. It's. I think it's I really think it's dehumanizing for everyone which is not to. Diminish the fact that it is obviously much much worse and much more unfair for the incarcerated people.

Don't show your hands earlier. These defensive backs the guys at this level, You know, just kind of feed off of that. That type of thing. What other things have you learned little nuances that you've already applied in the early stages of your NFL career? Yeah. I can't do too much dancing at the London coach when you were going to get Stevie, you know, you gotta get point from point A to point B. And you know a lot of guys. Honestly, they're they're really good for defeat, and they're going to read you. So you just You can't can't do too much Daphne Blonde scrimmage. 85 games into your NFL career, Is it what?

Nah, just really well, and you know, really Now so plated Ellis you like you said, Death Valley. I've been to Death Valley Broadcasting games for that environment. There's nothing like in a night game of Death Valley. You haven't lived until you've experienced something like that. And then in the SEC, all the visiting stadiums that you go to, of all the crowd noise mirroring what's it been like? Plant in the National Football League with covert, You know 19 in the year 2020. That's been so different for everybody. What's that been like a Zen experience. Yeah. You know, having a no fan and stuff like that been really, You know really strange And we're you know, you know, I've been playing football on my whole life. Always have fans, and so is it really just feels like a scream? It's you got. Ah, Brain Accutane. Gotta bring no energy, So I mean, that's what we try to do. You make a play to bring all energy I'm getting so tight, you know, came allowing the crowd when there's no fans in the stadium, so That's really how we go about it. T fans get to see you play on the field, but I don't think they have an appreciation for everything that goes with it in terms of following the protocols in the testing, and that's got away. I would think that's gonna be on your mind. And yet you have toe push it aside to play football. What's it like dealing with everything else beyond just playing the game right now? Yeah. You know, you got to get tested everything the day at a certain time. And, you know, get our math everywhere. So I mean, It's been really, you know, really weird, But everyone's going to just too and you know, just following protocol just so we could go out there and play the game that we both. Yeah, it's an interesting year instead of going on the road and facing these hostile crowds. Your face in a hostile enemy and covert 19, you know, and it's like you never know when it's going to crop up like it did in Tennessee, in Miami and other places, And I guess this This is the year where you have to go from a mental standpoint, be mentally strong and be ready to pivot on a just, I mean the team that pivots and adjust the best, you know, be at the Patriots with what they're going through the Titans and other teams. And teams that really don't get affected by covert. But after almost, you know, work to make sure you don't every single day of the season, the team that handles that type of business best this year. The teams are going to be okay. Right. Just like you know, you just gotta be careful with the alpha people, not people, not always.

You won't be able to play under sentence on Sunday. So You were exposed to. Ah, tremendous leaders, coaches players at Clemson. I think you thought that Joe borrow fit that category. A za an outstanding leader as he lived up to everything that you thought. My understanding is after the game, he instead to the to the defense. You continue to play like that. We won't lose another game this year. I mean, that's that's what you're looking for. From your guy at quarterback in it. Oh, yeah. 100% You know you want to go out like that is going to take Take ownership of you know how we play it off. As you know, we gotta compliment our defense when they go out there and get stuff. You know, we gotta go out There is four points where they'd be a field, road or touch now. And him.

Sometimes in the dependable know what the situation is. You know the guy that is the guy that you really want, you know, in the huddle. See how much carry over from Clemson in in your routes. The actual routes themselves are there to the to this offense here with the Bangles and National Football League? I know them different terminology, all those kind of things, but there are only certain number routes in a row tree, right? I mean, is it just me or is it just applying? You know things that you already know that you've done a million times? Make sure mentally you know, with the with the language and everything involved. You're on the same page as the quarterback. Yeah. Yeah, it comes and he basically ran everything. So I mean, you know you just from Beit was just you know, the different, you know, Route names and what? What The plate concept is So that was the biggest thing for me. But other than that, you know all the routes of the same You have two NFL touchdown catches. Do you have either football? Go out first.

Democrats seek to tie Barrett to Trump on Affordable Care Act as confirmation hearings begin
"Confirmation hearings are going on a zoo. Matter of fact, right now in the Supreme Court hearings with Amy Cockney Barrett Ah, at her nomination hearings this week and looks like a Senator Kamala Harris has this unique opportunity as a Democratic nominee for vice president to actually question number 40 fives nominee to the Supreme Court. When Judge Amy Cockney Barrett's confirmation hearings are are beginning on today, everything about the nomination is very contentious. Democrats actually contend the vacancy Created by Justice Ruth Gents Berg's death on September 18 should remain open. Of course, you know it's come up in a lot of the debates that should remain open until after the November 3rd elections of water's gonna help decide who actually feels the seat, but Republicans have insisted. That it must be field very quickly. And so Barrett, who was the conservative jurist, Ah would succeed one of the most liberal, Ah engines. Berg. If confirmed, Barrett could rule on challenges to how the election was conducted, and on a case seeking to overturn the Affordable Care Act, which is scheduled for Orel. Arguments on November the 10th. And so do you think that this is the reason why that the Republicans are really pushing to really get this lady and for the Supreme Court? Why he's pushing to get it in before the election because she could rule on the challenges tow how the election eyes conducted and on the cases as it relates to the Affordable Care Act, which is scheduled for those arguments on November the 10 Could that be the reason why there's such a big push for This Supreme Court's justice. Now the Judiciary Committee. Democrats have already demanded a little bit more information from Barrett about her background, particularly dealing with the high course. President establishing the right to abortion. But Republicans have criticized comma Harris for how she questioned other nominees. Including Justice Brett Kavanaugh knock and accuse Democrats of anti Catholic bias that that actually hurt Barrett. So for harass her do role as a committee member and a national candidate carries potential benefits of promoting her own priorities. But all cell The risk of becoming a target for political attacks. So it's almost like it's a good position, but maybe AH bad position, depending on how she questions Amy Cockney Barrett and how it comes off and how it is perceived. It's an opportunity for Senator Harris to show her stuff, according Tio. Vice presidential scholar Joel Gold Stain, who was a law professor there at Thank Louis University, he said. It's really going to present an interesting dynamic. In a way that could almost be something of a second debate for her and one of the spokespersons for Harris said on Sunday that she will attend Barrett's confirmation hearings remotely due to Corona virus concerns. After two senators Onda also the Republicans, who sit on the Judiciary Committee have tested positive on last week so due to Judiciary Committee publications, they have refused to take some of those common sense steps to protect members and AIDS and and so many are going to participate from a remote perspective. And so Senator Harris. She plans to participate this week, but it's got to be on a remote, they says, because a lot of officials in the White House who have actually not taking it serious. And of course, we know what the outcome of that has already been right. Many, many staffers and many other politicians there in the White House have contracting the virus. And so she's continuing to say, Listen, I'll do it remotely. And so the hearings are going on right about now. It is said that number. 45 has said it was his right. To fill the seat at the gym's Berg's death, and he named Barrett on September 26 Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. He said he expects The Senate to vote on Barrett's confirmation during October that they are moving very quickly, of course, Mitch McConnell received the orders from number 45 to make it his top priority. To move everything up. So the side let's get these thieves confirmation hearings going, But, you know, we'll see how it comes out will be happening all week long, and it'll be interesting to see how things continue to go A CZ. We continue

Seattle Police Department launches new community response initiative
"You? Sounds like you were outside somewhere. Just let's play. Guess where Hannah is. Boiler room. Let's have secret, hidden location. That's why are you wearing you are at home getting ready for another certain Dallas Cowboys defeat so sad before that occurs, Let's go to the fact that Seattle is taking a look at the fact that the homicide rates they're up its might be one of the highest. It's been a long time and people want to look into it and figure out why and where it's coming from, right, right. There's definitely a lot going on in that arena couple. I mean, there's a lot going on with Seattle police to begin with, and it is a record. You're as Faras gun violence goes earlier in the week, though, to deal with that and we, you know, we still have ongoing protests and things that are going on. Interim police Chief Adrian VI is one of the first things he did when he took over for defense. Was he switched 100 patrol. I'm sorry officers and detectives who were in specialty units. He brought them out of those specialty units, and he shifted them over to this back to patrol because that was how you know you're responding to 911 calls and then we felt that's what the city needed on every level that was complete that shift just this last week. Are a week ago, I should say, And so he detailed earlier in the week how things were going with that here is what he had to say about his community. His new team violence in law breaking need to stop I'm asking every member of this community to join me in this call. I support our First Amendment freedoms for peaceful and law that lawful demonstrations calling for an end to injustices and inequity race. That's that's from violence, or I didn't label my cuts, right. Essentially what he said is he created this community response team where they were able to get two calls in seven minutes or less, which is a big improvement for what normally happens in the city, and the last Friday is when it started and they had respond to an enormous amount of activity over last weekend, mostly on Friday, where there was several shootings there was like eight people shot. Two people who were killed in those shootings. There was 70 rounds just outside one elementary school. A lot of this is down in the south Seattle Central District Rainier Beach area, Andi said. said. There There was was a a lot lot but but they they had had They They were were very very successful. successful. They They made made a a difference. difference. Here's Here's what what he he said said about about that. that. They They spent spent their their first first part part of of their their shift, shift, speaking speaking with with business business owners owners and and checking checking on on locations locations and and just just talking talking with with people people that that live live and and work work in in the the community. community. This This is is a a model. model. I I want want all all of of our our patrol patrol work work to follow. Community Response group could do this because of their staffing. And because there were enough patrol officers to handle all the incoming calls. Emergency calls that we have it every moment of the day. That is why I'm pushing for more officers into patrol. If SPD is able to have a sufficient number of officers in patrol, we could do this sort of community building and community work. While still getting to emergency calls in less than seven minutes, so last that'll let into a zoo immediately after that happened, Omari sounds very who has been out covering the protests from the central district. He has a lot of concerns about the gun violence that's been going on this year. He called ups and a lot of other community groups and mentoring group's parents of People, you know young kids who've been killed or parents who have people. Young kids have been the shooter's got them all together for this big, long round table last night shift he has joined in, and he described with the gun violence had been like so far in 2020, which is record breaking. Here's what that is. Sorry here. We don't have that cut right now. Yeah, Okay, I'll tell you so it's it's a record breaking. Basically, We're on drugs just in King County. Over all, it's bad. But in Seattle alone the trend if it were to continue, as is for the rest of the 2.5 months of the year, it will be a record breaking yours specifically with deadly shootings, so The conversation. Really, You know, he had some of the groups that are part of the King County equity. Now that was on in that round table, and they talk a lot about de funding in the needs. You kind of invest in these mentor programs. But the chief, it was like everybody was on the same direction. Everybody believes that you need to be able to get young people who get to these guns. Well, before they even consider have, you know, grabbing again. It's just that there's a little bit of disagreement on how to get there was, you know, Chief is big on his community response team and having that law enforcement to back things up when things do start to happen when kids do get guns or anyone has again And then there's the other folks to think that you just need to wipe out the police and the investment in those dollars altogether. It an investment. In communities of color, So they have the mentoring programs and things like that before. Kids get a gun. Tommy, have any questions for Hanna in her? I'm just one. I just I'm just wondering this is a new interim police chief. And right now the talk. Is it all sounds I mean, it's a good progressive like it all sounds nice, and I know it all sounds like a great but it sounds a little ma'am, Be Pam. Be like, you know, it's like here's this. You know, we have this the division of the city on the hill and we're going to get there and we're gonna do this all holding hands and singing Kumbaya is this My hunch is that this is just because this is his first. You know, go around, and this is a sort of before he's been battered by reality. Hey, Khun B wishful and hopeful and idealistic. Well, maybe there might be some of that two degree. Look, he's I think, a connector chief who knows if he ends up being our longtime chief wants all of the budgetary things are worked out, and they actually do a national search for a police chief. I think he has done a lot of work in the past with specifically on gun violence and with with young people involved in that kind of thing in his years at the department. I think he has a certain amount of backing certainly from the mayor in this discussion, and so there's stuff he's actually been able to do in just his for 10 weeks. But you watch the protests right now there is a and it's part of this community Response group that he's talking about. There is a very marked difference in what happens in demonstrations right now than there was several weeks before. Really, How is Democratic? They are. It's almost like the shit that happened after during the maid is right. A couple of days. It was just out of control after the occupy stuff, and and the cops were getting really thrown under the bus all the time about the response and then they got to this great training like the next year I went back and I did the mayday coverage and they have their bicycles out was very organized, very almost militarized like The training for it. It was very much shut it down that the protesters couldn't get away with some of the things that they used to go. That's kind of the feeling I get When I look at it right now. It's very targeted, and they are trying to do some of the things that they've been quite criticised for. Not doing being very specific. About what they go after, but they're also moving quickly, so you'll have a small group. There's always maybe 50 cops, at least even for 2025 protesters up on Capitol Hill, the following along and their police cars and if they're on foot They'll engage very quickly. Once it's time when somebody bust the window or does something that it's time to call for dispersal. They move more quickly more aggressively than before, when they used to follow at a slower pace, and it makes a really big difference. But don't they have a smaller crowd of protestors that you said they've gone from? Whatever was 3 400 all the way down to 100 of them, right? Right? Yeah, it has been small. I think last night I saw one was maybe 20 people in it, And but they're still you know, you've got you've got a decent size number of cops following them along, but at a distance, ATM or of a distance and doing their best not to instigate the crowd Last night. I saw they were in there, You know SUVs following along. Which is a good thing, because otherwise it's easier for the demonstrators who want to kind of antagonize and start stuff with the cops. It's easier for them to get to them. If they're so close, you know, write a kind of face to face. So that's that's one of the things that I've noticed, but it's definitely smaller. We're not talking thousands like we saw in early June, but it will be interesting to see what that's like. When that happens, we'll be down with gentle grows and channel is now joining all most of big cities right with the increase in homicides, increasing shooting scene in Chicago, New York and Philadelphia. More across the board. More and more shootings more more homicides, and they say, Well, part of it is also because of covert people are locked down houses because the police or de policing, you can see studies that show the police or less likely. Do what is known as an on view investigation. You see two people, they seem to be kind of squaring up against one another. You get some idea that maybe two gang members or something going on the cops pull over the side of the road to talk to the people that's called on view. And those things are not happening. Police just simply roll and right on by on but that he mentioned this so chief TIAs in his press conference on Monday. What did he say this This community team will be able to do that. That's what he's talking about. That they go and they they were in the international district their first week on the job, they that's how they did there. You know their briefing before they go out for their shift. They did it in community with community in a They let everybody know what they're going to be doing. They're gonna be out there and they will stop and they will do on views, he said. Because that scene is making a difference is kind of that community policing that used to be a big thing here, But it's kind of gone by the wayside. Let's see. Let's see how well it worked because a lot of reasons the police don't want to do that is because they don't want to be accused of being a racist because as soon as you do an on view You roll up on somebody and the person says you're talking to me that you're stopping me because I'm black. As soon as that happens, the cop pulls out of the top pocket. This little piece of paper that basically read to them. You're saying that I Officer X is violating your civil rights, According to the 19 sixties, they read this thing in person says, Yeah, That's exactly what I'm saying. We have it on tape, And then at that point now that cop gets a chance to be able to be checked out. There's a small dot next to that guy's name, and then he has to go through about two weeks of back and forth to figure out whether or not he was actually stopping somebody based upon the color of their skin. So Why bother doing that? When you want to put your years in, Get your retirement, get in and get out. You just roll right on by. So it'll be interesting to see whether he's able to get those real numbers. By the way. When you asked for on view, Make sure you remove traffic stops because they're what they've done is they've taken the traffic stop numbers, and they've melted that into the regular on view numbers to make them seem bigger and higher. S O tried to extrapolate those numbers out. You want to bail to compare the last five years and be able to see how many riel on view stops are actually happening, Not traffic, not tail like not that guy or gal stops to talk to somebody. Those are the really on view numbers As those go down, crime goes up. That's my theory. Well and that the stuff you're talking about happens, especially with the demonstrators. I think it was just last weekend. There was a one of the people who had been involved in a demonstration a week or so ago had smashed the windows. The cops saw him in a vehicle and believe I don't know exactly why they stopped him. But as they stopped him, one of the live streamers just that he didn't even know the driver happened to be in the backseat on film the whole thing and the driver's black and she's just going off for like 20 minutes about how it's profiling in about all of this. Of the officers remain very calm, and they do what they need to dio. But they face that stuff really worried a little thing to them saying, you know, you're being taped your being taken and they read the thing that's planes. So what you're doing? You're charging me. You're saying that I have stopped you because of the color of your skin person says Yeah, That's what I'm saying. So would you like to file official complaint against me? Person says yes. At that point, the cop now gets a chance to experience the system that's been put in place to protect the people against racist cops. And you may ask you something. Would you stop? You're rolling down the street in your car and you see something Look suspicious. Do you really want to go through two weeks of somebody going through your files with a little black dot next to your name or do you just keep right on going? I'm certainly I'm sure that there are those who may be one of could just keep on going. But I don't know other cops. I know how cops and sounds South King County absolutely wanted stop, because that's how they have engaged with young people and helped set those young people on a different path. So I think it's a mixed bag. But I think what's important the big take away. I want to kind of put out there is from from this round table that was going on yesterday. Is that you had all of these different voices involved. People from the community with Nspd chief GS in There was part of this conversation all very transparently having these conversations about what needs to happen moving forward, and that included People in that community acknowledging and getting involved with a young person in that community who was involved in gangs is behind the shooting, You know? Does the code of silence? Nothing happens? Nobody says anything. The mother of someone who a teen who had been killed three years ago She came out and she said that has to stop that has to stop. You have to end that code of silence if we want our community be safer. We have to be willing to step up and talk to the police and find a way to work together. All right, problem. Anything you say just quickly. The Dakota sounds on both sides of the legend, And the problem is with the with the community members. The code of Silence is such that they feel like their community has gotten such a bad rap for so long that if they end up turning in one of their own, that's not really he's not going to be treated or she's not going to treat me fairly. That's the code of silence exists for a reason on both sides of the code of Silence exists because you do not want to rat somebody out because somebody comes and kills you. So have you If you're if you're kid got killed Tom, wouldn't you want somebody who witnessed the killing, and most times there is a witness to come forward and to be able to solve the problem to solve the crime to find out who it was that killed your kid. Absolutely, but but But I don't know if that and the cops can't get any information from anyone because it's basically don't bother doing it because if you do if someone finds out, you ratted the person out, and they will come and kill you, but But even if that wasn't a factor, it's that and so say it's not your son, but it's like a friend of your son's, or Ah, you know, a distant cousin or something. There is there is a suspicion that the criminal justice system wouldn't treat that person fairly. Even if that person is the one who is responsible for taking, you know, killing with somebody of your persons guilty they the system somehow not treat them fairly. Yes. I mean, I think that there there is a concern of that as well. Huh? Alright, like to see that That's interesting. And there is there is definitely that concerned. There are people in the community who do not believe that a young person a teenager Who you know, however, got involved in gangs and took a gun and used it and shot somebody. There are people who believe have all of them deserve a second chance. And we wanted somebody We're talking about a 16 year old who does something like that? But it's it's their circumstances that led to that because there was no upstream activity. There was no stopping whatever the circumstance was well before. This's how that happened, So we need to be able to do that. And give them that second opportunity, which like calm is talking about. They're not necessarily going to get inside. Lock up and eventually the victim. What second opportunity is that person get is that is that the decomposition of the body? No, listen and I understand what you're saying. And I would tend to agree with that side. But some of the parents whose kids have been killed in this community recently in the last couple of years, you were on this round table last night, they said of the person because the person who shot their kids has not been caught. There's no suspects. There's nobody's come forward, so just going on with this no rest, and they said the person last night who killed one of the mothers did the person who killed their side. Baby, Doug. That's what she said It was. I don't know that I could be that way with my own child of someone did that. But she said everything. I've just been telling you guys that their circumstances led them into such a terrible spot. Sure, absolutely. absolutely. It It is is a a way way way way upstream upstream problem, problem, Hannah. Hannah. Yes. Yes. Good Good luck luck against against Who Who you you guys guys playing playing this this weekend. weekend.

Washington DC - It's a boy! National Zoo reveals baby panda gender
"To you joining us now. Dr Brandie Smith, the deputy director of the Smithsonian's National Zoo, Dr Smith. Good morning and Welcome to mornings on the mall. Good morning. Thanks for having me now we've got some big news. So first of all, there's a giant panda cub that was born. I want to go back, though. How long ago was the cub born? It's been a couple of weeks now, right? It has been every six weeks. It's hard to believe, and they get there so tiny when they're born. They're just so little in tiny, but you have some big news. What's the big news about the panda cub? The big news is, we finally know the gender and it's a boy. It's kind of an amazing thing. Dr Smith it like that. It takes six weeks after birth for us to find out that it's a boy. Why does it takes along with a panda? Oh, yeah, a lot of times with many species upon visual exam you can tell right away if it's a boy or girl. You know Pandas born so small and not very zealous that it's hard to determine sex just by looking at it, And so we take a cheek for we actually look at the chromosomes. And since it's next y chromosome, we know it's boy when it comes to pandas, right the world is watching, so there's no margin for error. So we want to be certain. When we tell people it's a boy is boy. This may be a dumb question, but because I know I don't know a whole lot about giant about giant pandas other than like everybody else. They're adorable, right? They could take your face off with a really cute So do they like to say, is it is it the same with humans were, as you know, If you see a family that has a lot of boys it's because the father is determining factor. And they can you know that? Well, he just got a lot of the boy chromosome. And you know where they have all girls like my brother has three girls. They wanted a boy. In there, but they got three girls Does the same thing happened with pandas. Are you likely to get mostly males from one father mostly grows from another father? No, I mean, what if it's the male with the female contributes the extremism and now contributes the Exeter? Why, But there are a lot of things. There are a lot of factors that people think might impact gender. And it could not necessarily just the father and connect his genetic, But it also could be the mother. Her condition. There's one theory that says that, you know. Ah, healthy, robust and well about this develop, mother might produce more son. And some species. There's a temperature dependency rate, so their environmental conditions so they're all things that might impact gender with giant with giant pandas. We're not exactly sure. But you know, I was just thinking this morning. It makes elbow a little more precious than she was Our only girl. Great now are

What Happens If The President Is Incapacitated? The 25th Amendment Charts A Course
"Greene. The story we are covering this morning was first revealed in a tweet from President Trump in the middle of the night. He and first lady Melania Trump have tested positive for the Corona virus. Many people we should say never developed serious symptoms and even if they do they recover, But Trump is 70 for an age group that is more likely to develop serious complications and to be hospitalized. The White House physician says the president is doing well as of now, but will remain in the White House residents. A White House official told NPR's Tamara Keith that the president plans to stay engaged, but that Vice President Mike Pence is ready to step in. As needed. Now, if and when a president falls ill. There are significant questions about how the nation is governed. And John 48 has studied and written about scenarios just like this. He's executive director. Of the continuity of government Commission, which was set up in the wake of the 9 11 attacks. He also runs the government studies program at the bipartisan Policy Center, and he joins us on Skype. Thanks for being here. Mary. Thanks for having me. So I mean, someone who looks at these questions so closely. How did you react when you heard that the president got a positive test? Well, given all that's happened, it was probably the one thing that might stir up some or turmoil in this, this very tumultuous election system season we've had. Look, there are some real questions. Both about a president as president having on illness, especially if it were to get worse but also in terms of a presidential candidate. Those are those are different issues about being on the balance and what happens afterwards. So I do think there are some significant concerns if If things were to worsen. Well, let's separate those things out. Let let's talk about the here and now. I mean, what sort of things are being discussed right now inside the White House and were the president's health to deteriorate. I mean, you've written that there could be confusion there. Khun B. Chaos. I mean, take us inside that building. Well, first, a zoo president, the question would be is the president at some point does he feel that he doesn't isn't able to carry out the duties of the presidency for a time? And there's a pretty clear provisioning the 25th amendment, where he can sign over the power of the presidency to the vice president. And then when recovered, take it back, and that's happened a few times in recent years, basically, for elective surgeries, That would be pretty clear. I think you know what would be a little harder is if the president got sick enough that he wasn't able to make the determination there's still a A vision in the Constitution where you can have the vice president. A majority of the Cabinet say it's time for the vice president to take over and then in the most contentious situation. We have heard about another context that if the president disagreed with that, that Diagnosis. Congress might have to decide whether to keep the president on orto keep the vice president so it could go further down the line. But that would be the more extreme version. Look, we also have The election. And how would President Be on the ballot or not be on the ballot. If it really came to the the point where the president had to withdraw. There is a very difficult procedure and trying to replace him at this time. You know what? Who makes that decision? I mean, how well determine happened earlier. I think it's pretty clear that party could have just stepped in on the party. The party still has a role of selecting a new person. Ah, And that would be the party committee could elevate Mike Pence to the presidency and pick someone else as vice president, But that's a relatively simple vote. We've actually done that once in the in the seventies with vice presidential candidate Bigger place, Tom Eagleton. But the question now that the ballots are out is much more difficult. Could the president's name be removed from the ballot? I think it would be very difficult, but one further complication is in our election of president. We're really not voting for president. But we're voting for these electors in the Electoral college. They're still there in the ballot, even if you don't see them in your states about there, behind those names, and in theory, those people could be elected and then make a choice of another person come December with some complications that have come up recently, the Supreme Court but basically that there is a possibility that that even if Donald Trump's name is still on the ballot, and he were to have withdrawn Um, that those electors could still end up voting for the Republican ticket. Whatever that is, in December, they could actually decide. I mean, you would have electors around the country making a decision that Shouldn't theory be made by health experts, but they would be actually deciding who would who would be president. Assuming if Donald Trump won the election, even though he had withdrawn then there's there's this question in November of well, who's Who of these electors gonna vote for? They're gonna vote for the Republican ticket. Whatever it is. Then again, there are some complications. But the Supreme Court has allowed some states to really bind those electors. But Basically those those electors, many of them at least have the freedom to choose another person. We assume that would be coordinated by the party. And of course, that would be great questions about the legitimacy for the American public. Usually it's possible. I mean this this obviously so so speculative ahs. You said. I mean, these are extreme circumstances we're talking about, but I wonder. I mean, this is your line of work like I wonder if you get people sometimes saying, like, Oh, why do you dedicate so much time to scenarios That might never happen? But I guess there's an argument that these air really important questions that you want answered. You have to plan for for the worst and most chaotic sin areas. You do, And off with some better plans in place for for a lot of these continuity scenarios. I mean, obviously, questions of national security might matter if if we're not absolutely sure if the president is is Well, we had cases well before the 25th amendment, Woodrow Wilson, who was essentially incapacitated for his last almost a year and a half in the White House, and you know the real is a real question as to who was really running the government, the vice president ahead and stepped in and so you know, there are these questions. We don't want uncertainty in times of trouble. And you're saying that that you're not satisfied with the plans that are that are in place that the government could do a better job planning for scenarios like this. Well in some, I do think there's a very clear transfer power to the vice president. That's the 25th amendment has made that very clear if we get into much more public ated scenarios like they're both sick or the question of how you get somebody on the ballot and how the electors were picked because it happens this close to the election. Look, I think we could have more clarity. John 48 is executive director of the Continuity of Government Commission, a nonpartisan think tanks set up by the conservative leading American Enterprise Institute and the liberal leaning Brookings Institution. Thank you so much for helping us work through some of these Something big questions that you know, we hope don't have to come up. We hope the president remains healthy, but things we have to think about. We really appreciate it. Thank you.

Effort to foster orphaned mountain lion cubs in wild fails
"Done it with bears. Biologists have managed to place orphan bear cubs with foster bear mamas, and they adopted them, so they Decided to try the same thing with two orphan mountain line kittens in the Santa Monica Monica Mountains, Mountains, and and as as far far as as they they knew knew it it had had never never been been attempted attempted before before putting putting mountain mountain Lion Lion orphans orphans in in another another Dan Dan with with another another female female mountain mountain lion lion and and her her own own kitten. We have to wait until the mother is away from the den to go in and do anything Seth Riley's with the National Park Service, he says. During that week, they had to leave the orphans with the L. A zoo. And as soon as the other mom P. 65 left the Dan to go catting around. Of urine from one of her own kittens and rubbed it on the orphans and put them in the same down and making them more like you know, like 65 kids. Sadly, it didn't work. The mom eventually took her own kittens to build a new Dan and didn't bother to take the orphans with her, and they wouldn't have been able to survive on their own. We did we did this because we really want to give them a shot, too.

A tale of two direct listings
"Hello, and welcome to equity shot are quick hit on breaking news I'm Natasha Mascarenas and today joining me to talk about a tale of not one. But two direct listings on the same Damn Day is Danny Creighton. How are you Danny doing? All right this is exciting. You know we went from a world of no direct listings to an occasional direct listening to multiple direct listings in the same day. So it's an exciting exciting morning. We can finally stop breaking up spotify in slack whenever we say the L word and reinvention Asana, and pollen tear, which are the two news heads we got today it's zoo of curiosities. But lots of great stuff to talk about where where do you WanNa start you WANNA. Start with Asana or palate here. What's more interesting to you I think I have to start with pollen tear and my big question is you've been tracking it through every. You know crazy filing, your high level thought was this a successful debut on the Stock Market for? Today I think it's a definitely a success. You know the stock from January two, thousand, nineteen onwards trading at around five to five, fifty, a share, and then in the last two or three months that price jumped to about nine dollars and sixteen cents as of September first, and so you know when when the reference price came out yesterday from the New York Stock. Exchange which was quoted at seven dollars and twenty five cents. A lot of people were like, wow, that's like a significant drop from nine sixteen like what happened particularly also last week we had the Wall Street Journal reporting they were looking for a ten dollar referenced price. You know none of those numbers were really good but look it's trading. Now it's live as we're. Doing the show, it's ten dollars and sixty one cents a share I'm. So it's better than all the numbers we heard before and it's up fifty percent on day one. So so part of me feels like this reference value was actually chosen precisely to give it a pop on day one you know if they were targeting ten bucks on Day One, this is sort of what they got and so a little bit of a lower reference price might have given them a little bit more of A. Psychological boost on on day one. So I, I think overall to success. Do you. Can you talk me a little bit about how we're trying to value the company right now I feel like I'm seeing a bunch of different numbers out there. Do we have an understanding of its fully diluted market value? We do there's still a little bit abate mostly because Peletier gives multiple numbers for the number of care. So it gives us one point six, billion shares outstanding two point one fully diluted two point one billion fully diluted than two point five billion fully fully fully diluted and so. I would say that its current share price, we would call it around twenty, four, billion in evaluation, which is an uptick from its its last rounds. Again at you know for a seventeen year old company to have the sort of strong debut on Wall Street I think it's pretty good. All things considered. Okay. Cool. I'll put a pin in Pailin tear, but I do want to talk about their lock-up period later, run me through Asana numbers I. saw it opened at a five point two billion value. Yes it's on a similar story. So yesterday, The New York Stock Exchange released a reference value of twenty one bucks per share. It zoomed straight out onto the public market. So it debuted, it's currently sitting at twenty eight dollars a share up thirty three percent on day one so far it's up to about I. Think it peaked at five point, two billion, and as of now is more like three point five, three point seven, five, billion market CAP. But again, that's actually significantly higher than his last valuation, which was an inlet late twenty, eighteen around one and A. Half billion dollars so either oke across the board I think both of these issues you know there's always a lot of risk drake listings. As you pointed out Natasha there haven't been that many is this sort of a novel mechanism. They're still a little bit unclear and exactly how they work, and so it's great to see again similar to slack spotify you know these are two enterprise. Companies to again totally different from the more consumer is random companies particularly spotify, which has tens of millions of consumers who might be retail investors buying into the stock. Most people haven't used the Sauna and certainly must people haven't used Pailin tear and so to see the kind of strength on the markets and the first day is is enticing for other companies considering the direct listing model. Right There I feel like pollen tears total customer base was what one? Hundred Fifty, company, hundred, twenty-five customers. That's a lot of customers Doing Gospel distanced. Something it's probably my favorite statistic about the company and I think I saw Dan Prime tweeting the other day that you know it's no longer going to be a secret of company. So we can stop calling it as such. This is the end of that right that confrontation about pollen tear for. So long we've been having well I, I will say. This about an hour ago. So may not be true today. A ASANA has an investor relations page like a standard like every company who publicly trades Peletier does not like it actually does not have as as of an hour ago that I looked up I could not find an investor relations page for here, which which tells you everything you need to know about the company I, feel like that is like in a beautiful one sentence or describes his relationship with investors, but but I think you're absolutely right you. Know despite the fact that only one, hundred, twenty, five customers despite the fact that took seventeen years three hundred grew it's growing from seven hundred, forty, three, million in revenue last year in fiscal year twenty, nineteen, it gave a revenue projection for twenty twenty about one point, five, billion to it's a growth company. It's SAS more and more SAS today than it was in the past where it was more services driven. So again, it's a positive story despite all the kerfuffle around its governance the last couple weeks do you Do you feel like the direct listing method might now take on more popularity. I. Mean. Maybe in some way, but can we even is? Is it enough of a success? You'd think that other companies might follow suit now that it's not just spotify that that did this. I think the more the merrier right I think Palentinian particular raised capital round back in. July right which was sort of what I was told from some insiders essentially the IPO that was the IPO and then direct listings just the actual market exchange. So I think we're GONNA see more companies taking this approach of bifurcating the capital, raise the float that you would normally do a IPO and just the actual just GonNa Start. Trading today and you know I think that that allows you more time to create the right narrative the right story of and also separates what is a a pretty intense kind of crisis driven process the road show getting the company ready the SEC filings separating out at out you don't put all your eggs in one basket. You can do it in stages and I think more and more companies undertake that approach going forward. My question to is and I'm sure our listeners are curious is with all direct listings. There's no shares offered by the company when the when it debuts and so when we see these prices I, guess how much of them are they vanity metrics much of their HABITA- goals, how important are they for us to care about and think about? I wanted to be precise. So there are no new shares offered by the company. So there's no dilutive in an IPO generally have fifteen, maybe twenty percent new shares offered to the public. There are no new shares but many of the insiders have to pay taxes capital gains they actually do have to sell shares. So you know so far this morning already thirty five, million shares of have already been traded and We have on Pailin tear thirty, two, hundred, and thirty million. Shares sold today, right? So already, there's a market, there's clearly tens of millions of shares being sold. So these prices are real or Israel as any other IPO in which people are you know figuring out what's going to happen? You know the next checkpoint for both of these companies is gonNA come in a couple of weeks when they report their next quarterly earnings and I think by then you'll start to see the analysts get comfortable the companies understand the next steps and what's happening after. And you're speaking with Dustin Moskovitz later today the founder of Asana. So any questions on that? You can kind of tease out right now. Well, I was told. The pure folks. About our stock imagery because apparently no longer has sideburns to. Join, the Line of people that complain but it's like you know there's the old line about taking a haircut. Up Thirty, five percents of they actually gained hair on the market today speak. Clearly. sideburns maybe somewhere else. But? No I. THINK WE'RE GONNA be really interested because some unique company in which its founders, Dustin Moskovitz who Justin Rosenstein, who both met each other at facebook actually majority of the company outright right. We just never see or very rarely see tech companies where the founding to CEO's and and COO own like outright majority like not just a majority of the voting because of class, a class B shares but they just outright own about thirty two percent of the company I believe doesn't owns thirty six. Percent of the company outright and just knowns around sixteen point, one percent and so to me like I'm just curious because it's just a different path for a company it was a slower growth company capital much more efficiently grew much more methodically and the founders sort of maintained ownership over time in a way that most other founders do not think the other. The other thing to put out here is Asana has no lockup though the similar to spotify Ed to black as listing all the shares are available for trade to anyone. Who any insider anyone who owns a share of on this morning can put it on the market and sell it Here is the complete opposite pallares pioneering this new kind of fusion of the IPO and the direct listing one would argue maybe the worst of both of those processes but actually a direct listing with a lockup and so only roughly twenty eight to twenty nine percent of pollen. Tear shares are even available for sale at all with the rest in lockup and market standoff agreements that will expire over. The next calendar year. So you know there's a lot more to wait on right. There's not as much liquidity with Pallares could actually harm the stock price. They might be a little bit inflated right now because there's limited number of shares available for trade, we'll have to watch and see but again, it'll be interesting to see if other companies start to do a directing the lockup because clearly Palin tear has not suffered tremendously using this model. So again, another tool in the tool chest and uber do something similar with lock-up period. mean. They did like all IPO's. Underwriter from a bank, they have lockups in place mostly to make sure that there's not a mass rush to the exit. They don't want hundreds of millions of shares at any price willing to be sold. They WANNA, kinda manager coming out because they're putting oftentimes their own money up through the green shoe at stake, and so again, that's what made direct listings unique is that there wasn't this lockup employees are free to do on day one through whatever they don't have to wait six months as is customary. So again, we'll see kind of where the the system lies in the future. As you know, the New York Stock Exchange also got approval to do a direct. Listening with a capital fundraise so we've gone from this world of like there's an IPO and that's the only way to go public to. You can do a direct listing, a direct listening with a lockup, a direct listening without lockup address listening lock-up in a capital fundraise like you can do anything you want. You know it's it's the it's the Netflix of going public. So to speak I, see the headline now airbnb goes public through a through a pollen tear style direct listing. It's just going to happen and it's going to be horrible but we will be back here to talk about it as always every shareholder gets a free party house for one night so. That'll be the new innovation going on there, but but that's a sonnet that is Pelham Tear Ford they an and we'll have more to come in the next week.
Parrots at zoo separated after swearing profusely at visitors
"Profane parents at a zoo in England have been ruffling feathers with their filthy language. The Lincoln Shara Wildlife partook in five African gray parrots last month and put them in quarantine together. After they went on display. They started using foul language in front of visitors. The zoo has separated them and hope so get a better vocabulary.
Parrots were removed from UK park after teaching each other to swear
"Oh, boy. Oh boy. Luckily, some zoo officials at the British school British who had the wherewithal to separate these foul mouth, parents, uh Zookeepers say the birds keep encouraging others to swear. And it's not good for the kids. Billy Eric Tyson, Jade and Elsie joined Lincolnshire Wildlife Center is a colony of 200 gray parrots in August, a soon revealed a penchant for the blue language Now, Steve Nichols, the zoo's chief executive, says they're quite used to parents swearing, but they've never had five of them do it at the same Time. Hey, says most parents clam up outside, but for some reason they relish it. Uh, he said no visitors have complained about the birds. Most find the situation funny. He says. It amuses people.

Amazon's new Ring camera is actually a flying drone -- for inside your home
"Amazon had a big announcement this week. Crazy stuff. Crazy stuff including sensor. So this is this is a complicated story, but there's something technology they're gonNA call sidewalk. which basically put sensors all over your neighborhood. They realized that well, you know you have a doorbell or. You know your your mailbox to might be distant from your Wi. Fi may not be able to get a connection. So what if we spent set up? A low bandwidth network for Internet of things. That goes spans the neighborhood and your neighbors if they have. Amazon stuff. Will support it. It's nine hundred megahertz. So that goes a long long way. Amazon says as much as half a mile. There's a little sensor you could put on your mailbox say. You've got mail. That'd be funny if it said that you've got mail. and you're smart lights and your garage door opener and your and your doorbell, and all that stuff can be on that network. They also say will work with trackers like tile. Because Do. We really wants Amazon have sensors all over the. What that's crazy. But that's not the craziest thing they announced. It's not even close. They a few a month or two ago. They announced a wristband that will analyze your voice and let you know if you're angry. Maybe at the end of the day, you know you, you had some really angry conversations. Okay. Okay they say don't we're not sending your voice back to the Home Office is just analyze it on your in your band. Well okay. I don't I believe that. But. That's not the craziest thing. Even ounce. Probably. The craziest thing they announced is a security camera. That's a drone inside your house. Maybe forty seen the the videos of it. It's just a little base unit looks just like kind of an Amazon. ECHO says, ring on Amazon bought the Ring Doorbell Guy. Says Ring on it. And It's two hundred, fifty bucks available next year. And I don't think flies around your house when your home it could but the idea would be you're not home. Intruder, alert intruder alert and the and the the base thing goes zoo drone comes up out of the base. and. Flies around your house looking for the intruder. They've worked on. This. For two years. They said it's an obvious product that's very hard to build. As, is it an obvious product? It doesn't. You don't have to fly it. It just flies by itself avoids windows. Drapes S- couches, dogs. v You could say where it can go and what path takes they don't go in the bedroom. But So when you first get it, you, you build a map for this drone. It says, okay. Tell me where you'd like me to go to look around. It can be commanded to fly on demand. So guests, it could fly when your home if you WanNa see what the kids are up to. Uh Mom. Kids are GonNA start throwing things at not get off, take it back at the drone out of my room. or it can be programmed to fly. When a disturbances detected by the ring alarm system. When the cameras in the charging basic can't see anything the camera the. Records only when its in flight and and rings says, the drone makes an audible noise when flying of course, it does and you've heard drones or noisy. So, it's not going to sneak up on anybody. So you could use it. They said, well, how many times have you? Left the House and said, did I leave the stove on? If you ever done that I've done. That have you ever turned back to check. I don't remember if I've done that but I wouldn't be surprised not how you can just have the drone look. Is the dog. Okay sleeping. It can it can check to see I don't know if you close the garage door I guess. It will avoid objects in its past the propellers are. Shielded. So you know they they can't hurt anybody if should fly into you. I don't know I. THINK WE WANNA. Battle drone. In case of troopers come in I think it should have shocked probes, buzzsaws, projectiles should you know let's put a gun in the thing? How you like it? The ring. Always Home Cam. That's the weirdest thing Amazon announced. Yeah Wow We think we're living in the future. This is doesn't life feel a little bit like a science fiction novel now? Like maybe it's just me. I feel like You know when I started doing this show way back when in the nineties it was like Oh. Yeah. Yeah. You can. You can have a spreadsheet and do your. Business. Documents. Now, it's like you've got a killer drone in house. Well, it's not a killer yet yet. A. Crazy world we live.

"Nick and I'm Megan. Basham first up. Another casualty from the economic lockdown Ziems for months art history and science lovers have had to stay away from their favorite galleries and exhibits. That's left many museums with a budget crisis. Yeah the International Council of Museums estimates as many as thirteen percent of the world's museums may never reopen those. That do will likely have to make some adjustments world reporter. Anna Joe Hansen. Talk to leaders at several. Us Museums and has our story for us. As an organization it was a catastrophic loss of income. Ken Ham is the founder of the creation museum and Arkan counter in Northern Kentucky. He estimates they've lost somewhere between fifteen and twenty million dollars over the past couple of months. Summertime is usually their busiest season than the incoming may June July. We have to set aside considerable amount of that so that we get through the winter months. When there's not that many people that come will now. We don't have that income to be able to set that. Aside Hamm says they had money in reserve for expansion projects and new exhibits but they had to use those funds just to survive. They also had to lay off eighty percent of their staff. Most of the rest took pay cuts and worked long hours. It's really been a struggle out. Zoo Stop because we have a lot of animals zoo zoo. Stop looking skeleton crew in some of them had to be the twenty four thousand data might show. The animals will look after that. Experience isn't unique. The American Alliance of Museums says US galleries and exhibits are losing thirty. Three million dollars a day to survive. They're relying on a combination of federal funds. Private donors and virtual fundraising good evening. Everyone welcome to the very first virtual gala. Thank you for joining us. And for taking the leap with us into the virtual world. The Japanese American National Museum in Los Angeles held its annual gala on line. The virtual event included historical readings Ukulele band and a raffle for luxury car. Other museums are putting tours and educational material online and looking for ways to monetize that content but virtual options just won't work for some exhibits. Brian Starts Vice President of operations at the Children's Museum of Indianapolis the Children's museum. We encourage during much hands on learning together playing together with his family with other visitors. And that's pretty hard to do. A virtual setting and it obviously isn't going to fly in a pandemic so starts and other staff members are making some pretty fundamental changes to the museum. Analysts are going room to room figuring out how to restructure exhibits or eliminate them entirely like the preschool gallery the nature of the gallery plus a typical visitor in that gallery which are children five and under can just the natural thing to do is grab something. Put it in your mouth throw it somebody else. It just that kind of thing to sway preschoolers are start. Says they won't be reopening that section anytime soon. The creation museum and Arkan counter are set to open on June eighth but CAN HAMM says reopening presents. Its own set of challenges. Of course the museums will have extra sanitation limited capacity and as much social distancing as possible. But there's a more basic hurdle who's going to run the museums with so many employees still furloughed. We don't have the income to bring on the stuff. We need the stuff to bring in the encounter to be able to pay the pay the SOLAS and so another problem is anticipating the number of visitors. Okay we can set a opening. But how do we budget for that? Because how do we determine how many people are gonNA come with a people gonNA believe it's safe to come? The museums typically draw hundreds of bus tours every year but no one is doing group tours anymore. The Museum of the Bible in Washington. Dc faces a similar problem. Harry Hargrave is it. Ceo It's difficult right now because our group sales people have nobody to contact earlier this year. The museum was doing a lot of national marketing. Trying to draw people from different parts of the country. Now the team is just focusing on local. Visitors Hargrave is hoping to reopen sometime between June first and the fifteenth. But the real question is will anybody comes turning on a spigot where there's a huge amount of pent up. Demand is going to be a time of people anticipating and looking and thinking and testing the marketplace out before they come can hand believes it could take two or three years before the creation museum and Arkan counter really get back on their feet but he believes they have one main advantage. We attract people who are really interested in L. Message and they're very passionate about this so I believe we will see a fairly good responses as we reopen reporting for world.

Walking down the street go home grandma the attempt to curb infections by wearing white bedsheets over your head Has Its roots in an age old superstition mark in Southeast Asia with participants channeling Pokong or a ghostly figure wrapped in white sheets or shrouds with powdered faces and Kohl rimmed is representing the trapped souls of the debt. So that's what they're trying to do out there so it is like a ghost ghost outfit in the world that you don't cover your nose and mouth during the corona virus pandemic. This is so well it seems like they should make an adjustment to the to the Justice Guard. A little bit. You know right right or yeah. You're right initially guys. The Peo- The tradition you spit at initially the Pokong patrols. The opposite effect attracting massive crowds when they started doing this. So selfish yeah. So the. The organizers Well anyway like on one hand. It probably gave the more trap souls of the dead to work with right but It was counterintuitive. So the the organizers had to change their methods and started surprise Pokong patrols and apparently guys it's working because according to one resident in the village of Kep Oooo he said quote since the Pokong appeared. Parents and children have not left their homes So they're really afraid of these things and they're not going outside This got me thinking. Could this work in the United States? Is there like an equivalent? Who would it be like? People dressed up with Jeffrey Epstein or like anti vaxxers. What he gets thing the only way this works is if you kill if they kill one out of every twenty people they come across right. That's how we get results. I was thinking I was like This this experiment work in deter stays country. Because he's actually shooting them in the streets many can hire people to compass ghost where he shot them down. Also that's a double whammy. You're going to get shot and spooked right. Not only that. But there's another Asian country. That already did this way better and that's India with the Corona Nights. They had their faces covered and they were smacking people with corona virus like javelins. So those are the ones that were dressed up like a literal germ. Yeah but like a night.

Ask because it's a sign of the fucking reminds me when people dressed up as clowns like six years ago like scary clowns but like sometimes a backfire and they just got their asses. Oh Yeah Oh yeah yeah. At least they had human contact. All right guys this next one comes from Charles again and it's not good. News olds obese people so So US I'm currently solidly at a BMI OF THIRTY FOUR RIGHT SMACK DAB in the middle of the orange obesity chart I used to calculate my fatness and a new finding coming out of New York hospitals. The epicenter of the Corona virus outbreak in the United States is founded above any other factor besides age above heart disease or lung disease. That obesity was the number one. Chronic risk factor of admission to the hospital. If you get corona virus so Yikes isn't that the number one risk factor to getting admitted to the hospital in general. Yeah it's it's a big one. It's not good. But but in Earth's rotavirus two people were talking about the lung disease and pre pre existing editions It's it's above lung disease like pneumonia and heart disease when it comes to corona virus. Wait a minute wait. A minute when you say chronic though is that like one of those things like when you're like finding out if you're negative or positive for cancer and it's like you think you think you heard it incorrectly. No it's just if you're obese and you get corona virus you are way more likely to go to the hospital acute versus chronic but hey Twenty percent more like this is bad because I feel like I and this is a prediction when we come out of this thing. The majority of America is going to fifteen pounds fatter. I think I mean everyone is getting fatter right. I don't I don't want to lose weight in quarantine. I know you know what I've been. I've been helping me call of duty because like what happened. Was My wife rise. Started playing that together at night just last couple of nights. Pounds been flying off. What do you stand up too busy too busy? Your hands are trigger. Yeah your hands are occupied. Your can't can't snap. We're just snacking. Watching Zoo veered. Movies was was that that'll get you fat. You pop on the call of duty you get you get your hands move. And I don't know I I think I'm GonNa take drinking six days a week in snacking guy. I'd rather die okay. Well I mean each their own. I'm just saying this is pretty fun too. It's been helping run during the day. C O D at Nights. It's it's not bad. Yeah so The study was conducted by. Nyu Grossman School in doctors at Nyu Langone Health Center. Who looked at the patient records of over forty one hundred virus patients in the New York City hospitals between March first and second according to the business insider article? From and from that article quote they found that about half of the forty one hundred patients were admitted to the hospital mostly determined by age and BMI specifically eighty seven percent of patients. Who were over sixty five were admitted to the hospital and seventy percent of those who are obese and overage thirty five were admitted Even those under thirty five more were more likely to be Not Be admitted if they were male in obese so the caused it was it was the quickest study ever that there was a number of other studies except same shit our study saying we know that you know being old is a major risk factor dying from this thing but you're saying that the fat people were getting admitted roughly the same rate as old people. Yeah Ryan Underneath Old People. If you're if you're if you were people that were you're betting who's going to the hospital. You pick the old people first. Then you go fat. You're like once ran diagram and if you have both in the middle you're dead at forty percent likely if your own advance to get at your forty percent going to the hospital like I don't know how statistics work it was. Yeah it's like twenty. Twenty twenty th stacks so obesity basically causes the inflammation in your body to get a lot worse affecting your immune system and lung function Ever hear of fat guy. We's standing around. I have it was me. There are several other studies that Shit. He's constantly yes but Frankly I didn't WanNa see anymore so yeah I mean be careful. You don't WanNa be obese regardless but especially if you have the pro. Here's the problem with this is like I'm not gonNA I'M GONNA lose. I'M GONNA TRY TO LOSE weight after we're allowed back out Just but only got like three or four months before Mike. It quarantined again diet tomorrow. Yeah like it's a cyclical thing. Think I'm going to get out of this first round but how? How good am I gonNA do with an exercise before around to doing something? Here's the thing about that. It's going to be the biggest party time I mean people will spend money. It's going to be like the Great Gatsby the time in between the first lock down. And the next lockdown people partying their tits. Site prohibition in credited. Yeah Yeah what are you? What are you GONNA say? We pool our stimulus checks and get a vote for that period when that happens. I think a jet ski sales are going to be through the roof. I'm probably getting fucked around two or three based off what that whole last story. So I'm down to blow it. All Pat marks develop habits. Now that'll carry over in my mouth and my nose Internet Bluest put a tax on carbohydrates. And then this is fine. Said wouldn't be surprised they tripled down and taxed fat and you could hide ghosts and carbohydrate tax calories you just have if you have to pay the government if you want to put something in your mouth that would help a lot of people that's like the ultimate you have.

We are friends love it and i would say how many times do we we sat at dinner either conferences or at retreats or at you know the <hes> all kinds of industry events and i guess my answer to that is not enough. That's true even though it feels like we're on the road all the time you know it's always good to sit down and connect with you. Only get the opportunity before we get to deepen this. I'm going to let people know very cool thing about you is that you have <hes> been willing enough to be rangel you into a speaking at our insights. It's marketing day coming up in october. This is going to be great yeah. I'm really looking forward to it. I mean the lineup. You've put together honestly about honored to be on the list with all the other people you have up there. 'cause you know if you think back it wasn't i think it was two years ago. That's where we met. That's where i met you when you spoke at the marketing day in chicago everything everything everything's gone there so it's like it's come full circle so i'm excited yeah very cool and also i think one of the best times that we have where we connected. We got got a little longer to really talk and was at one of the wire executive retreats and at that point you were on the track to becoming you know going into the c. suite and and here you are in the c. suite so that's very cool yeah. It was almost one year well a a urine change ago today and that's exactly what was going on. <hes> we were able to really kind of talk about it and it was really at that pivotal moment of starting up something new of essentially you know birthing are live beyond something. That's that's just in my head right. I think they're still trying to get some of the nuggets out of my head. My team is always saying that but <hes> we're. We're definitely meli a lot further than we were a year ago awesome well tricia. Houston is the chief operating officer in the founder of emaar lives. Let's dive into that exactly because we're gonna talk about experience strategy and how how it comes out in the real world and all that kind of stuff but tell us about you coming upon one year now now of celebrating m._m._r. Lives <hes> anniversary this this was going on for you this summer so tell us about how it came to be and then what does that look. Oh quite right now a year into it because i in a year a lot can happen so kind. Where was it birthed and then what is it really today yeah and you nailed it. A lot has happened <hes> definitely. If you ask me where we'd be a year ago. I wouldn't have been able to make up the answer of where we're at now. There's been a lot of pivoting which it was a learning for me but where we started <hes> actually goes back at the beginning of my career. When i was in experiential marketing i haven't always been in market research or always been kind of this experience strategies <hes> space though i guess you could say experiential like experience strategy on steroids right. We were to doing lots of really big cool stuff for the coca cola company like the torch relay. It's worth people world cup trophy tour and being in that world it was really easy to see how experience kind of drives everything and that everything communicate and then it is it is it is that coveted piece of like all you snow brand's. Look at that and be like if only we could get something so experiential. If only we could do something so engaging. If only we could do something so interactive. It is very coveted so i mean just even the two things you rattled off are actually very cool like who doesn't wanna be a part of that exactly and the thing is what's interesting is how coveted needed it is. It really shouldn't seem that aspirational and that's kind of what's landed me where i'm at today is i went to market. Research is a discipline thinking i could learn more about how to put more strategy and more measurement and a little bit more rigor around experiential and i've found that market research is a bit too far while it does a great job at driving business the strategy and all sorts of product development it wasn't right to kinda help push experiential forward where the magical as was kind of in the middle of you know a using some things from the disciplines service design design thinking consumer experience and just deciding to lead from a place of experience. I i <hes> that no matter what you're going to do that you're deciding what type of experience you want to create no matter how big whether you're doing olympics more whether you're building a pop up store store or putting on a marketing that right and december or in october i mean right experience experience could ruin so so let let's. Let's unpack that before we move into you know kind of m._r. Life but before we finish telling the whole story for those people who have not been involved in experience in her just just hearing this like oh the coca cola george or you know or pop up. Can you give one example and break it down about what a company is doing what they mean by experience marketing yeah sure so there's different levels i think in terms of where companies are operating so the ones who were using it as a marketing marketing lever. Probably the most classic example is in the c._p._g. Space where you don't have a physical presence for your products and so experience. You'll doesn't just mean that the term is like putting cans and hands it can also mean your flagship store like yeti has one you you know and you don't go there just to buy a yeti one of their materials you go there to experience the brand so it's making it tangible. Some people call it tangible marketing right uh-huh. That's the marketing angle <hes> the companies who are taking it further when we really get in this experience strategy space. It's not just part of their marketing marketing. It's part of their company. Ethos it's part of their core values. It goes through h._r. It goes through employee experience. It goes through of course their physical. Experiences are digital experiences. It's just part of their d._n._a. <hes> you see that in big brands you see that with apple you mentioned yeti. <hes> you know there's a lot of companies who are looking at that flagship store and or an you know a a physical experience <hes> out somewhere do you. At what point is this trend and went wendy. You see those telltale signs that really this is just an outpouring of ethos. It's like wh where's the differentiation for you whether it's part of like actually starting at the top i mean yeah and i mean that like it is it. Is it just a tactic for you or is it part of your company culture. <hes> you think about zap does is a great example. Actually <hes> last last may was in vegas and was able to go to their headquarters and do their tour <hes> which i totally recommend if you're ever in towns like ten bucks i mean just take <hes> you know a rideshare over to fremont street and they'll take you round but it gives you a good sense that they'll be happy to tell you. We're customer service company. We just happen to sell shoes interesting yeah. So you want zappa's experience it. You know you can buy these shoes anywhere you want but if you want the zappa's experience this is where you're gonna come exactly and i mean of course chick-fil-a is a great example in that space. I mean they're yes. They're chicken is loveliest delicious but they're focused their winning. The drive through lines are out on the freeway because the the experiences consistent and the experience good and it goes through how they hire all their process and everything they put into place for their customers very cool okay well. I do because already interested. I didn't what you do because we always winds up the industry to talk about so kind of go back to you know where you guys so you guys were looking to market research base to get more insight in in order to direct and guide and maybe give more <hes> even r._o._i. Or i guess just real you know real direction from the research base into the experience but but then so what what what became of emaar sure yeah thermal alive standpoint we really thought we were immediately going to start start doing work with experiential agencies in with experiential minded client side marketers essentially the live event base and it was a real learning for us that it's very different going to talk to somebody who already gets the idea of experience deliver it. They breathe it. They're like well. I know what i'm doing you. I don't need to tell me how to do it any better so we actually found pretty quickly in the first six months that the work we were doing was actually more with innovation teams an r._n._d. Teams and in.

"In zoos and the role zoos play in conservation efforts. Let's sorry. Christina mini zoos across the world are facing criticism from animal rights groups on a loss of public support from people concerned about the welfare of captive animals. Elizabeth Stallard president of the Sacramento zoo board of trustees says zoos can justify their existence by the animals that saves if we didn't already have zoos we would have to invent them now in order to protect species in the wild. The reality is that we can't just simply send these animals back to Africa there. Their native habitats are being destroyed and their their ability to thrive is being impacted in a way that we simply can't keep up with and sell. It says many zoos fund conservation efforts educate the public about each animal's specific needs try to ways awareness around humans encroaching on native habitats. In some cases. There are fewer than a thousand of the species left in the world. I'd prefer that all of the animals would get to live without human interference. But we have to live with the reality. Right. Which is that humans have pushed upon these animals, and who's a really a wonderful opportunity for us to do something on behalf of the animals, and on behalf of the communities in which they live an animal rights groups like pita have repeatedly criticizes calling them animal prisons, and particularly the group objects to the zoo breeding programs and enclosures calls for the public to boycott them entirely. So if you're looking to build a zoo, I would imagine you look at like, the us San Diego is sort of the one that has held up on a mantle as to, you know, pattern zoo after because so much space. Interestingly I asked Allard about what she sees the future of the zoo being she said, she would like to see something closer to what Fresno has for. There's really and what does she like about Fresno? I think she likes it because it's a comparable city size to what Sacramento is. And she thinks that you know, maybe San Diego's a little too lofty. But she thinks Fresno is an achievable goal. There's a lot of people would never see some of these animals ever. Zoos and people who keep zoo animals as pets. They can't go back into the wild. Once they're found things like pandas. I mean, you you they probably be extinct without the efforts of zoos at this point. So interesting. All right. Thanks so much. You brought this up yesterday. And so we decided to dig a little deeper into today. This whole idea of building a hiking trail in the DMZ. That's that the land between north and South Korea. You like this? I think it's I think it's a good idea. Although I'm little worried about landmines they have land mines there. That's not all they have there. I did a little research what it's like to go. There. We go deeper in less than five minutes building a better Sacramento with news ninety three point one K F B K on fifteen thirty AM and your heart radio app. Want to win a thousand bucks fourteen chances every day.

"So, but I'm curious about is like when an animal is born in a zoo. But then it's for the intention to like breed back into the ball population. How does that work is it literally like put in? Into the wild or no, no layers, definitely like a whole process that we have to do in order to do that often. If it's an animal debt, you know, for sure is going to be released back into the wild. They were this will often happen in an office flare where there's they don't have. They're not actually supposed to the public or even have a lot of even keeper interaction because we want to keep them appended in that way, humid. So they don't have that association with humans. So for example, at the Toronto zoo, we have a black black footed ferret breeding an excuse. Up black footed ferret breeding and release program. So black footed ferrets had dwindled down to. I think it was twelve individual animals left in the world in the rural. And so a long time ago. I don't have that exact year, but those animals were taken from the wild and placed in or started a breeding and release program. So and I think Alvarado's twelve only eight were viable to breed. So the current population just came from those eight, but that's why it's so important to keep track of the genetic today. So they had to diversify the actual like as much as much, but now there's about five hundred ballet wild. Okay. He was a successful because of zoos and not just trying to do. There's multiple zoos that are involved with the black footed ferret program. But now those animals are back into the wild in their natural habitat and thriving and those animals oh for that breeding program ours. Zoo there in an off display area. Right. No public can see it, and there's very minimal contact with the keeper because we want to still keep them in have their natural wild instincts. So that when they go back to the wild. They are going to thrive, and well, do you may not know the exact answer to this. But is is the point of zoo in some ways like just the money that I spend as zoo guest, go towards programs like we're we're a non for profit. So, you know, the money that comes into the zoo it's used to care for the animals, we have, but also to support all these different programs that we are running and trying to, you know, help their wild counterparts and the wild spaces that we want to save for animals in our care. Let's mazing I think that's like a really important thing. That is like you said it's behind the scenes, so people don't always see it. But we have been talking earlier about like social media. And the wall of just like you guys saying like expanding what you show the public. But obviously there's a limit when you're breeding, and you don't want human interaction. But yeah, I think that's it's so important for public to see that. Because for some people's perspective. All they see is like this is what a maybe originally was intended to locking in one case you can look at it. You know, people have one perception, but I find that they're just not getting the full story. So that's why I love, you know, getting my chance to talk to the public, and, you know, explaining the importance of zoos because they only see it maybe on one side, but there's so much amusing work that goes on, and I think zoos play a huge vital rule in especially in today's society with you know, how much habitat is dwindling.

"Local schools and trying to have them get involved in even like in our own backyard and natural spaces. So there's lots of the ton of different work that goes on. We have a salmon like breeding and release program where will actually set up a baby salmon in a school, and then they can once they're at appropriate size. They get released. Do you mean like at a school? For children. Okay. I didn't know if this was like school, okay? For the salmon or for humans, cool. So that the kids are engaged like crazy. Getting to help and get in fall. And then they'll salmon get released into the wild. I have a question about breeding like this may not be a problem with salmon. But is it ever hard to like get because I've I've heard that some animals like they'll bring them possible mates when they're specially when they're like isolated animals, and then they won't necessarily mate. When you want them to even though your leg, we're trying. This is an endangered species. We need you to mate. But they're like, no. Yeah. It doesn't always work. You know, just like with people the right connection. It's the same with the animals. They don't always work. But you know, we don't just breed free willingly, we all these specific. Yeah. Like most of the animals in our care are part of endangered species breeding programs. So there's a whole separate group of people that manage these breeding programs, and they make recommendations of which animals should breed based on their genetics and the current captive population. So that we can maintain a very genetically diverse Rodley not just having the same animals as being the because we're dealing with a small population of that species. So we have to make sure that there's no, you know, like inbreeding or we're not we don't want to get down on the genetic. Yeah. Exactly..

And of course, as always share with a friend share with a family share with a fo-, and we will get back after the. Okay. So we have a very special guest here today. I want to introduce you guys to Ryan the Zoot. I I ride. Ryan how are you? I'm good just so everyone knows tells your your full name who you are. How do we know each other? And what you do. Okay. My name is Ryan Hegarty I am a zookeeper at the Toronto zoo. I've actually been working there for quite some time almost thirteen years. I did not know that a long time. I was like I'm going to ask that question. And then what if he's like six months anymore? Like people are going to be okay. Thirteen years. That's when I started as a summer employees, but coming up it'll be almost seven years where I've been a fulltime employees. Okay. He's gonna while. And so how do we know each other? And we met through dodge Voss we. Dodge. Which was very very fun. But I am no longer since a little that my arm can't take the dog. It's it's a tough sport. It's really is. It's actually a lot more than any thought it, but we're here to talk about zoos, and I I'm obsessed with Ryan's like Instagram because I sometimes get little glimpses into the animals he takes care of. And so my first question is how did you become zucchini? Or is there like a one way path in terms of like how what you've got gotta do for school, or how did it all begin for you and typical path? So there's there's actually a ton of different ways that people that I work with have become as you keep her. My story is I actually became a co op student at the zoo through high school, so someone in my sister's years older than me was a co op student at the zoo when I found that out I'm like, I have to do this. So I looked into the co-op program, and I did my research, and I got an interview with the zoo, and they picked me. So that's kind of how I got. You've got your foot in the door. Yeah. That was where I got my foot in the door, and I got to know the staff there, and then when it came time whereas old enough to apply for summer position. I did that. And because I already knew everyone, and I was proven to be like a really hard worker. I was against selected as a seasonal employees. And then I've basically been there ever since it was summer work for a couple years about six years. And then I had finished my post secondary school. Where is so I actually went to school for veterinary technician. Okay. All right. I started in that. And then the left of that. Well, I mean, I started name about animal biology with hopes to become a vet. This too hard. Like, I want the tech. Okay. Rather than the vet has is I okay. So vet tells like working with the animals that tech is like a nurse in animal. Okay. So you're doing a lot of hands on stuff. And I so I went to school. I went to Seneca college king city for that. And I did work as vet tech for awhile. But it just didn't feel right for me. I'd already been involved with zoo, and I was very passionate about that. And I liked working with those types of animals, and there was a lot of like public engagement like teaching people about these animals, so I really enjoyed that aspect. So that's why I kind of left the vet tech industry and focus my attention on the zoo industry, and I just you know, continued my path there and eventually gone on fulltime..

"Dalla. So you're a Migdal can be conditioned to associate anything with danger. That's why you get these fears sometimes irrational, but since it can be conditioned. It can also be conditioned, and it can dissociate these things away from danger as well. And this is what exposure therapy does relying on the psychological principle of Pavlovian extinction. That works to safely expose the patient to the source of their anxieties in a gradual and consistent manner. Over time. It often involves somewhat of a training program where the patient creates a fear hierarchy and then work their way from the bottom of the list, aka the least scary things to do with their fear to the top of the list where the most scary things are. So again, you started with the least scary things and slowly gradually over time. Expose yourself to the most scary thing. But that isn't what happened to me. I essentially went through a type of exposure therapy known that's flooding therapy. Where a patient is initially exposed to the most feared item on their hierarchy instead of the lease. This is definitely what happened when I spend a tarantula being scared of spiders, that's not how I would suggest that you start because it was quite traumatizing at the time. And that's what you're trying to do going through the hierarchy is trying to avoid trauma. But looking back on the experience, I actually member having an affinity for the Tranquillo that I slept with I kind of remember it being super cute and that flooding therapy that initial really scary fear. Again, spooning tranche LA helped me to get over my fear of spiders. Podcast listeners. We love you. Thank you so much for listening. Make sure you have subscribed. Wherever you got your podcast..

"But because everyone there was freaking out about the vomit. I couldn't be like I still don't actually there's. Di literally the way I'm quietly dislike looked around. And was like, wow, he volunteered. Yvonne, man. And then they turn they cleaned up. Turn the lights off. I like put the covers over and was kind of like, oh, my God that train either on the girls leaving below me. Like somewhere, and I just dealt with it. And since then I'm not getting that whole scientific theory about fear. I have been so much less scared of spiders, but I- spooned one. I sprained us by transient. It may sound a little bit like fake news that an alarming experience with a tarantula could potentially cure me of my fear of spiders. But as it turns out, scientifically exposure therapy is the most effective and successful method for helping people overcome their fears studies show that after going through exposure there ninety percent of people had considerable reduction in their fears and anxieties four years later and sixty five percent of people after exposure therapy. No longer experienced their phobia at all. Exposure therapy is so affective because it takes advantage of how the fear center of our brain processes information, the fear center of our brain is the amid della that is spelt, Amy G.

"Vicki and I went together and we would sleep in like a hut. Basically that was like, you know, made of like a straw roof or whatever just like a simple mattress and for some reason in ours. There was like a mattress like leaning against the wall beside me. And the first night it went in. It was just like to massive spiders, just on that thing. And you know, when you're just like what their tranches like their full transfers, and they're in my room like a foot beside my bed. I don't know what to do. And basically, I there's at this property. There's like twenty dogs that are kind of like not stray dogs, but they live on the property. One runs in the room, and the spiders just bolt under my bed. Oh my God. And then so literally I'm like, I I can't sleep here. I'm terrified the worst part about spiders is seeing them move Mastic need. any direction. You never know what direction despite is going to go in. So eventually, I gain the confidence to like jump on my bed and tuck my thing in that very same night. My roommate Vicky wakes up yelling, and what had happened to her not the spider some kind of Beatle cockroach had nestled behind her ear. What was happening and she woke up feeling like hushing into her ear, and she started screaming and went into the bathroom. And then she said you just like saw run off of her body and in that same. I don't know if this is the same night. But like the buzzer not that big. So my net that I so perfectly tucked in had been kicked open in the middle of the night by new. But then the whole night. I was like the spiders right here. I was like using a flashlight looking everywhere like, and then I couldn't sleep because I was like my stupid feeder moving and opening it up so beautiful experience at the elven nature park, but also horrifying I have. Okay. So I had to say I have gout. So I do have to bring it up as a whole separate buckets. We call it goat. So I used to be so afraid of translates that I used to take keep a photo of a wolf spider underneath the desk in my room, where I would do my homework, and whenever I would get tired or lethargic from my math homework. I would pull the photo of the wolf spider out every myself note to give myself adrenaline, I big and put it back and him awake. And then I would keep working red bull literally. So this is how I got over spiders. And it's an insane story to that involves be I wasn't Guatemala point staying in a hostel with a bunch of people didn't know from around the world. So I wake up in the middle of the night. And this I say American because my head was like typical American. He's projectile vomiting over the hostile room. He's literally like I've never seen like the vomit was everywhere. So he must have gotten sick from something. He said like all right or he was like the reaction was so weird. I remember thinking he like stood there, and I'm like clean it up. But he was so like this. Let's like didn't didn't act like anything had happened. But everyone was freaking out. So the lie they turn the lights on and I'm sleeping on my stomach on my front. And I'm I the lights are on an eye lift my body up, and I pull open the covers and a tarantula crawls of where my chest had bust. Oh, I had been spoonful attorney. A tarantula. So it had been in rear. My chest was and it walks calmly off the side of my bed..

You can also find felines walruses and a bunch of land animals, including bears bison and deer in terms of Wales. They have several belugas and now only one orca or killer whale named Kisco Kisco was captured in Iceland when she was three years old in nineteen seventy nine now at forty two. She is watched all five of her calves die at a young age and live alone, and isolated this brings up an interesting turn of events in Marineland future of October two thousand eighteen the Canadian Senate has passed Bill f two zero three that makes captivity and breeding fatigue a criminal fence with fines of two hundred thousand dollars the Bill still needs to make its way to the house of Commons. But. Even if it does pass Marineland would still be allowed to keep the fifty five whales and dolphins they have. But they wouldn't be allowed to breed them or restock them. Meaning eventually Marineland would be no more. Marineland has unsurprisingly come out in strong opposition of this Bill claiming it if anti-science and impairs legitimate scientific and research programmes. Okay. Cool. But how much is this science contributing to what we know about Wales. A peer reviewed study investigating. How often studies are conducted at Marineland found six articles published in the past ten years and half of these were never cited by another author. The researchers also found that at Marineland the often displayed in accurate information, including that there are seventy seven species of whale. Hello. There are eighty nine and that killer whales live up to fifty years when we now know that they can live up to. Ninety. Marineland if not an accredited member of the candidates zoos and aquariums. And on top of that they've been charged full-time with counts of animal cruelty. But to be fair to them when inspected the charges have been dropped. And there have been no issues of concern. According to the s p feet eight the on -tario society for the prevention of cruelty to animals, so yes, you can still go to Marineland you will be met most days by a line of protesters, and maybe a feeling of guilt in your stomach, but as of right now, but hopefully not forever arena. Land is open for business. Another thing I've done that has it wasn't technically is not a zoo. But when out of my first year university, I went to Thailand as like a wall world traveler international student, volunteer group, I think. Later and with the same group our or something to Ecuador anyway. So when we were there the first few weeks, are volunteer the second to travel, but we stayed at this elephant nature reserve there, which was popular thing to do. Yeah. Yeah. I think that places in Chiang Meyer just outside of its not problematic. Right. As far as I believe in. No like their whole mission was like don't ride elephants all of the elephants that were living. There had come from like abusive background some of them had like lost limbs from like mines and stuff like that. And so it was like meant at the time. We were definitely told this the really positive type of tourism. Because like, we're not actively engaging. They're not in cages, they roam they have so much space and as tourists like us, we were staying there for a week to just help take care like wash literally elephant poo, and like literally cleaned the stables, and that kind of thing I love you traveled across the world to clean up after Valentine's like jokes on Yuba. Yeah. But it was amazing experience except like being okay, I and other state. As you were also so scared of spiders Thailand had some of the craziest spiders I have ever encountered in my whole life, and we would sleep like, my friend..

I have flashes and images of being a little clear by running around and being like the unicorns. Really? I don't know why. But then I then my only real actual memories of being like high school kid that got taken to the zoo when I was younger or like, I very vivid memories of like the science center and those parts where you sometimes it feels like similar to zoo. And you're there not I know it's not as the rainforest the back cave. I know it's not real. But you just feel like you're in with nature. So wait. Small town. Okay. We had actually getting to us being like I never went through with. No, I did go to zoo. But I I honestly remember being bored, blah. I remember being like this is not dodgy not through your zoologist phase. As all I fully went through that. I was like I'm going to be as well. I mean like I went to university for animal biology, and then I went to study marine biology. They were bored at zoo's. Yeah. I think I liked the idea of it being in the wild and something something about like there were certain displays. I remember like thinking, it was cool when they were really large animals, but so many times you're just like do something there is nothing worse than getting to zero. And being so excited about the authors. And you've got there and they're like under the log. And then you stand there for twenty minutes, and you're like mom, dad, like the movies guarantee, entertainment like this has like I I used in literally got pits in my stomach and be like, and then someone would walk by and be like, oh my God.

"So you can enjoy some beers says you overlook Ravelli so that that will be the construction starts on that by the first of the first of the year. Wow. You know, I it's it's great to see we were talking before the we came on the air. But just how much the zoo has changed in the last fifteen to twenty years, and I suspect a lot of that has to do with the the contributions that come in that allow the zoo to grow to where it's at now because it is remarkably different now than it was twenty years ago. And I just I can't wait to see you know, what were you? You guys are going. I think. One of the biggest changes is the fact that we're also botanical garden, I mean, a lot not a lot of zoos, you know, our major botanical garden like we are and our horticultural people really BUSTER butts to make that place beautiful all year round, not just in the spring and summer. It's incredible. From an attendant standpoint. I every time we're there, it seems like there's more there's more. There's more people is that what you're seeing the the attendance. At the zoo is is is on the increase for for the past several years has been well over a million million visitors. Daddy. Here we haven't plateaued yet. And and again, you know, you give them the neat things to come and see and enjoy and just just like the pleasantness of walking around a botanical garden at sixty acres, it draws people in well, you know, my wife loves Disney, we happened to be there. Sometimes more often than you know, maybe I think we should be always having fun. But I always see people walking around looking at their watches, the moms the dads. I don't see that at the zoo. It's as though it's a family environment. Where you have everybody seems to just be enjoying what's going on. And and you're right. It seems like the adults are just as in Amherst with the animals as are the kids, and it's great to see and for those that have not been to the Cincinnati zoo and Mike as we wrap this up. Thank you for being with us. I really want to encourage you to to give it a new look if you've not been there in a while if you're trying to reconnect with one of your your kids or nieces nephews, whatever I strongly encourage especially during the festival of lights or you can go out and just get a fresh view of what's going on kazoo. If you've not been in there in a while. You're gonna be amazed at the changes that have taken place. Many people will go online and Mike. I know this they'll become members of the zoo for no. No other reason than to support what's going on with the zoo. And that's great to see. What's again that Cincinnati website, WWW dot Cincinnati, zoo dot org. Cincinnati zoo dot org. That's great, Mike. Thank you very much coming.
