"Zuma school do My mind stuff is accused of presiding over a decade of corruption through his friends, the Gupta family. They all denied any wrongdoing. There's a new president now in Cyril Ramaphosa. But the looting has not stopped. Experts tell me this shows how deeply rooted the problem is and how wide the network runs. But what is life like for whistleblowers in South Africa? What happens to those who dare to speak out whistleblowers? Have not had A great time in our country, they have been subjected to enormous pressure. And I regret that In many instances, we have not treated them well. That was President Ramaphosa during his evidence at the State capture commission earlier this year. It's an investigation that looking into alleged corruption by some in his government, accused of working closely with the private sector and for whistleblowers like Marcelo. The experience described by President Ramaphosa is one she knows too well. Their motors operandi was just bankrupt, ER And smear her name, but she was an executive director at Gupta lent advisory firm Trillion at the time. The company was used to siphon millions of dollars from state companies, often through phony invoices. You know, I naively thought that the report will come out the state of capture report. And people be convicted and go to jail. And within a couple of months I would find work and life will just continuous normal. No, I was unemployed for two years. So that's the price. Although some legislation exists to protect people like Marcello from losing their jobs, its critics argue it is not far reaching enough told me of how she fears for her safety. This is not unjustified. At least 858 corruption related murders occurred between 2015 and 2020, according to officials. There is some kind of witness protection program. But after years of seeing state orchestrated corruption experts tell me very few people are willing to entrust their lives to this system, and many whistleblowers are continuing to face death threats even when they've been assigned protection. I asked the national Prosecuting authority if the government is failing whistleblowers, This is an actor's voice reading out their written statement. The witness protection program of the N P. A is hugely successful. And there has been no need identified to enhance it in any way. Joining the program means leaving everything behind family personal freedom. It even means a change of identity. And some say This is too big a sacrifice. But what does the government do about these people? We can't protect them. We do advise on steps they can take to protect themselves. The N p a can provide limited protection in suitable cases. As for muscle law, she is trying to rebuild. I was hospitalized. After a mental breakdown, so it's I don't think I'll ever be the same. But it's a process. My life. We'll be fine. I've done my part and I have no regrets. This country is worth it. For me. Susilo material, ending that report by poems a felony in South Africa. It's election Day in Norway and given the country's places Western Europe's largest oil producer, It's perhaps no surprise that climate change in the future of that oil industry have been at the forefront of the campaign. Opinion polls suggest that the centre right coalition may be ousted after eight years in government. But the front runners to form the new government. The opposition Labour Party have already said that they won't form a coal coalition with any party demanding an immediate halt to all oil exploration and production. Helga Rick Thick is a historian of oil at the University of Oslo, one of the big differences then between the main parties. Traditionally the main party, meaning the concern reporting on the Labour Party has been a rather similar on the way they were approached both climate and the oil industry. But this year, it is different. In a sense, that's all the smaller part of his particular the Labour Party's reliant on cutting increased support. In the polls. And these are the party who know are demanding slow pace of investment sector stop drilling, etcetera, So it's very interesting and open situation in many ways, and I am I right in saying that, although the Labour Party is leading in the opinion polls in terms of being most likely to have a chance of forming the next government coalition, it has said that it won't go into coalition with anybody who demands an immediate end to all and gas production and exploration. Yeah, that's that's the Case. But for sure based on the election results. The old Commodus will be very interesting and it's not very clear the silence and the problem here is that two thirds of the rest of the resources we have left in the notion. Condoms. Self is in the Arctic, and that's the area where if you want to develop these fields, it's difficult. They have long Turn production faith in the sense that if you invest in the in the know probably will produce for the next 40 maybe even 50 years, So it's impossible to combine that with a policy where you take climate into account, so it makes it very difficult even for the Labour Party because the Labour Party wants to do both claim that they want to solve the climate crisis, but at the same time they want to give investment to those sectors they can develop further on and that's kind of Dilemma and the problem. The whole Norway is in at the moment, so you don't think it's fair? In that sense? I mean, the sort of the rather easy image that the rest of the world I think probably has of Norway's that it is a country that through its oil wealth has got such riches. I mean, I think it's got the world's largest sovereign wealth fund that in a sense, it could afford to turn its back on oil and gas tomorrow, But it's not quite that easy. You know that simple, of course. It gives no where the financial aims to do that so normal, for example, and paper can start a large investment driving to new energy. The problem there is that when it comes to immediate activities in the industry oil sector have a lot of developed plans where they can on the day give you a project on the table and you can start unless that once the alternative are most early in the pilot phase, so you really need a strong push to get into that direction while the oil sector is so So dominant so every time you have a crisis They sold and we need some more investment and they get it they did during the Corona crisis. So Norway is in situational actually. Where, because of some tax break, which was made in June, 2020 we know have increased investment in this sector during the last year, while the rest of the world have this crease, and I'll tell you a lot about the situation or in Norway. Helga Rick, thick from the University of Oslo. Norway's elections today. You're listening to news how stay with us much more to come in the next 30 minutes..

"Here's the article headlined south africa. The first country built on critical race theory. Officially implodes. And i thought to myself that is so perfect. What would happen if we founded a country and built a country on all of these academic ideas that we see talked about in higher education. What would be what would happen with that. Look like the answer is south africa. South africa is totally disintegrating again reading from revolver dot news. So happened is that there is the jailing of this person. By the name of jacob zuma and the supporters of the former president took the streets to allegedly protest. But what they really wanted to do was to plunder and steal at will sound familiar the death toll already of all the riots are already into the dozens in south africa. Do you know there are fifty seven murders day in south africa. That's almost american levels of murders. Such a. That's why. I say it's insane per capita by the way that's what i mean. Yeah i was. Yeah so i'm just saying. America was probably let me guess. America probably has two hundred murders day. This is interesting questions. And how many murders does america.

Is It Normal to Cry After Sex?

"Is it normal to cry during or after sex especially during times of intense stress in life. Yes it's so normal to cry crying. After sex zuma's post coiled this fauria that includes tearfulness sadness and irritability after consensual sex. Even if it was perfectly satisfying and there's many reasons why we cry during sex and this is for all genders men. Cry women cry after sex. It's intense to be with someone we're naked. Were vulnerable in. We've been intense physical pleasure. It can definitely overwhelm our bodies so it would make sense that you might cry. There's also a biological response. Could be hormonal changes. That happened during sex which can lead to intense emotions and kring is also really healthy. It can reduce tension and intensify physical arousal. And maybe if you have been in a dry spell for a while this has happened to me and you suddenly let go of all that pent up energy. That could also bring you to tears. Now listen you might cried tears because you have pain with sex and if you've painting sex that's a whole nother conversation and we talk about that a lot on the show. My advice for you is just a right out that tears. And it's okay to cry and i'm going to sue yet with a partner who fully embraces it because i know when i've cried after sex my partners find it pretty awesome free and if they are explaining. Oh no it's good. I'm just feeling so much. Tears are healing cry this week. It's good for you.

"Great to speak with you. Jason thank you for making the time. And i guess just to start at the very beginning. Can you share with our viewers. Where were you born and raised in. Did your folks do for a living sure. I was born actually in los angeles. I moved to new york when i was very young. My dad was an art dealer. Had a gallery in l. a. Actually called the ferris gallery. Which is my middle name gave warhol his first west coast show. Showed the soup cans there ferris gallery and my mother was not historian They're both still alive. My mom was a professor of art history. She taught different here in l. A. sheets sutter riverside and on the east coast. She spent most of her time teaching at a suny purchase. She's retired now But i definitely grew up with artists than in the arts and with two parents who were in the arts and had not had those parents. I probably would have been doing something else so i guess you know i know that you eventually went off to vassar but before that if you can think back to your adolescence and there may be people at that stage who are watching or listening or whatever. I'm just curious. Do you remember what your interests and passions were as as a kid. Sure i definitely do I've actually been thinking a lot about my adolescence. Because i just read this great book which i would highly recommend to all all of you Fellow zuma's out there called notes on silencing and it's By by a woman named lacey crawford i met her the other day and It's about her experience at saint.

Mr zuma's was president from two thousand nine until two thousand eighteen until he was forced to resign after a vote of no confidence. He led the african national congress or an party which was itself involved in multiple corruption scandals. You followed the charges that have been put you now. From the indictment democratic mr zuma faces eighteen counts of racketeering corruption fraud tax evasion and money laundering. Prosecutors leveled the accusation that he had taken some seven hundred bribes feed them plead not guilty. The corruption in south africa goes far beyond one man and one administration. The case against jacob zuma is nearly as old as post-apartheid south africa john. Mcdermott is the economists chief. Africa correspondent and is based in south africa. The challenges relate to a two point. Five billion dollar deal to buy european the tree kit. To upgrade south africa's armed forces way back in one thousand nine hundred nine when zuma was deputy president. He's accused of accepting an annual bribe from the french arms company. Tyler's in exchange for protecting the firm from an investigation into that deal. Both zuma tallest deny any wrongdoing. So then how does mr zuma's respond to these charges then besides simply denying them. Mr zuma has spent more than two decades saying that the charges are false and all parts of a conspiracy.

Professional video-gamer, 25, hangs up controller over thumb injury

"A top video gamer has been forced to retire at age. Twenty five because of a thumb injury. That's very early to retire from anything. Twenty five years old. But you imagine he's probably been playing video games for twenty four and a half years. Correct these dudes just come out of the womb looking for a controller. Ready to play games. Kids start early. This guy's name. Is thomas zuma papa arado. He says he's stepping back from professional gaming due to injuries. I've never heard of this guy. I don't do gamer stories. I don't really follow gamers. But i thought hey. Let's do a gamer story on weird news for one time now. I think i covered video game a few months ago as as well so it says here. The twenty five year olds zuma will stop competing for the foreseeable future because playing through the pain in in his hand just isn't possible anymore. Here's a quote from zuma. It breaks my heart to step away from a game. I put my heart and soul into every single day for eight years. I tell you. He said that on his twitter account going through that process. You know getting healthy again was one of the hardest things i ever had to do. Both and mentally which led to a lot of stress and anxiety. I needed surgeries. I've been struggling with injuries. It's the hardest thing ever. Yes got wrist thumb problems a makes this makes it tough to compete against the best players in the world. I don't enjoy competing. When i can't be the zuma everyone knows and loves and and feel like it's not fair to myself or to or to my team to go through all that again potentially causing more damage to my hand been grateful to have had a very long playing career. Actually i've met so many amazing people through e sports and have made so many friendships continue to cherish for the rest of my life. Sure i can't use my opposable thumbs. Which really is the thing that distinguishes us most from the other mammals and it really allows us to live in life. But you know what this just some things. You gotta sacrifice when you want to be a very good gamer. I can't pick up anything now. I can't eat a twinkie. i just can't have. You should see me and peel an orange. It's just terrible thankfully. I've made enough money in east sports to hire somebody that appeal on my oranges for me. That's what's going on here. And i cannot hitchhike because i can't raise my thumb hitchhike. You think that's an old school thing that no one does anymore. Well i'll tell you people do it. People do it sometimes. You need a ride okay. As always only half of that quote was correct. I just can't take this guy so seriously. I feel bad you know. He's he can't play video games again. Know get a real job. Now just go and get a real job like the rest of us now zuma welcome to reality sir although he probably has made so much money playing video games these east sports. If you're very good at it you can make so much money from what i understand. He probably never has to work a day in his life ever again. He probably has enough money to buy biotic thumbs and fingers to replace his regular gidgets. I'd imagine Do they do that yet can you. Can you get like a thumb plant thumb implant like a robotics. Thumb seems seems possible. I mean if you if you can install a vagina. why can't you get a robot thumb. I feel like now it mentions at the end of the article that the video game that zuma most successful ad and has to retire from his call of duty which is a first person shooter. Game that i used to play along with black ops. I really enjoyed those games and played them for quite some time. But i had to stop. Because i had this moment of realization word. I looked in my xbox and you can see how many hours of accrued video game time you've been playing and it was like almost eight hundred hours and i was like. Wow what a loser i was like. I gotta get my life together. One eight hundred hours. What does that like. Several months wasted playing these games. It was it was a real sobering moment. I got rid of my xbox and now you know now i record a podcast in a closet so you know sometimes you just got to pull yourselves up from your bootstraps and just you know. Be successful like you know like me.

Advancing an Antibody to Prevent and Treat Cytokine Storms in COVID-19

"Cameron. Thanks for joining us. Annual real pleasure to be with you. We're gonna talk about covid. Nineteen kind storms in your experimental therapy zuma mob which is in late stage testing for covid as in clinical development to treat a range of cancers and other conditions. I thought we could start with a little history of the company had been known as callow bios. It was heading towards the liquidation. And you succeeded the infamous martin kelly who was on the job for about four weeks before he was arrested. What attracted you to the company. Well been in this role now for five years the company while it had multiple problems back then always had very interesting science. And that's proven to be the case with the development work that we've established for lenzi mab and i've advertising mab those Two of our lead. Monaco acted me was first and foremost the science. Secondly the opportunity to have a significant impact on as many patients as possible. You rename the company managing and put a focus on rare neglected diseases. Lead zoom apple was being developed to treat rare cancers sam l. j. aml where was the drug actually discovered so the drunk was initially developed not in its current format by a research group in australia and humanitarian licensed those rights. He managing has a proprietary platform technology. Cold human era and human hearing takes the role material if you will in some ways and optimizes it and lenzi mab as the product of that up so it's fully owned by hugh managing and we applied the same secret sauce. If you will to Taja again i advertise you. Map is fully by humanitarian covid. Nineteen can turn deadly by causing what's known as a kind storm. What's a cytokine storm. And how does covid nineteen caused this to happen. Well what happens. Is the virus triggers. An inflammatory reaction. And we all have those kinds of things happening in our body when we engage with viruses bacteria fungi and some types of cancer. So we want the immune system to work in those situations. Unfortunately in some patients with nineteen the immune system goes into overdrive so inflammatory reaction is really what causes some of the body systems to go haywire. So think of it this way daniel. It's a little like you sometimes need to have a foot on the brake and sometimes you need to have a foot on the gas when you're driving. According to the circumstances you encounter cited kind storm is a bit like having your foot on the gas and keeping it pressed on the gas with out anything taking it off. So what lens. Any map does as it. Neutralizes side kind. The triggers the stole and so in some ways in lens does have a jewel mechanism in some ways. You could think of it. Take the metaphor further as both taking the foot off the gas pedal and applying foot on the break. And that's walk allows. The cited kind storm to dissipate. What is granollers site. Macrophage pollinating stimulating factor. Is is this. The signalling you spoke about it is and we abbreviated. Helpfully to g. m. c. sf so gmc sf is a bit like communication conduit between certain cells in the body. They're involved in the inflammatory response. And when not inflammatory response goes into overdrive in the way i've described a lot more. Gmc s. f. is produced that triggers other side kinds downstream site signs to do their dastardly work. So if you can neutralize gmc if you can prevent some of the downstream impacts and daniel. Sometimes the way. I describe this is if you have been at a party. And people dram party coppers you pull a string this this liberal explosion and a whole load of confetti and streamers and glitter and other stuff goes all over the place well pulling the string is a bit like gmc sf being triggered an the convention streamers and glitter of the downstream site. Kinds that just go everywhere and create havoc

Soft Power 2020

"Am joined today on special soft power program by mongols foreign editor megan gibson monocle culture editor kiara ramallah and monocle twenty four culture correspondent and eurovision desk chief. Fernando augusto up. We have a lot to cover in analyzing who made l. top ten this year and who didn't but we should talk about first of all meghan. What an unusual year for calibrating soft power. This was because of course it was like every country on earth given the same test it was like he is a pandemic deal revert. And see what it says about you. As a nation did it make a difference on how countries will seen by the rest of the world and soft power terms. It absolutely did like you said every country was dealing pretty much the same set of problems but just as internally the pandemic kind of shed light on where countries weren't up to snuff and where there's certain systems were lacking or the social welfare net was not working so too did a show which countries were really relying on kind of coasting approach to diplomacy and soft power. Every country had to turn inward in some respect. You had to face an economy. Crunch you had to face a healthcare crisis but a lot of countries still managed to think about diplomacy and what. They're projecting abroad and to other countries and global cooperation. And that is something. I think that kind of threw up some surprises when we actually looked at the year in terms of soft power some countries that have never made our list before immediately caught our eye. Well let's talk about that. We'll come back a bit later to how different countries responded to the covid nineteen crisis. But let's look first of all at our top ten and meghan all ask you again. You were talking about surprise entries in the top ten. Who is there. The see that hasn't been before i think the first one. I'm going to go to taiwan. And i should say we've done top ten this year. Usually we do top twenty five. We quickly realized that there weren't twenty five countries. That actually made that good impression on the world. I would say this year. A peace prize in the nineteen forties. Exactly we cut it down to ten and picked the ten countries that did something notable on the world stage and taiwan absolutely one of them from their stellar leadership in actually handling the virus. Which i mean has seen the country. Even today has had quite a minimal effect. On at the helm of its citizens numbers have been tiny and given their proximity to china. Remarkable for that. That's just been something that they've really been able to step up and show that they've had good leadership and for such a tiny country and a country that has been long grappling with a very antagonistic neighbor. That's been really impressive. And i think we've also could look at another country that has made our list consistently but also small and has done really well with the pandemic and that's new zealand new zealand again a beneficiary of its leadership and of its leader. Another factor we will come back to later in the show. I wanted to bring you in now. Kiara refu- look at the top ten. Were there any entries in there that left out at you. It's difficult for me to look at this without my cultural hat on. Because i do think that cultural exports make up so much of a country soft power their own way. You know if you do have a tv hit. That really can change. The international perspective of people have on your country in the issue. We have profile of borgen. The danish show which kind of guess kicked off almost a huge facination with scanning wa. I'm happy that south korea is in the fair number and i were discussing. Grammy results on are getting their first ever kind of major grammy nomination. I mean that is huge because the grammys are essentially a us kind of awards ceremony. Yes of course it has one global subcategory but it's largely. Us fakest for a korean bond to be nominated as part of that really means that they have become not only a korean band moore global bond and that radius testament to the power of capes. I think south korea has really well deserved second-place cultural reasons but also for all the other reasons dr megan was discussing. It's very interesting. Also you you know you mentioned new zealand as well and perhaps it's a very niche reason to be very well known abroad but i do think that new zealand has got an increasing amount of really interesting. Musical acts that are genuinely world class. I'm talking the likes of zuma. Alice harding benet talking. Broods mullen williams all quite indie acts but in the the community which is very dedicated. Genuinely these are kind of agenda setting also around the world. So i think it's really interesting. That a tiny nation can produce a really interesting side of the musical experimentation side of things obviously around this table. Four nations are represented all nations with instantly recognizable and widely understood national brands. And that's my nation of australia. Kiara of italy fernando's of brazil megan's of canada which i notice is the only one in the top ten. This whole thing is just the most shameless stitch-up so fernando to bring you in brazil a country with a powerful national brand and yet you are not in the top ten this year. Do you feel especially put out by that is. Is there a case you would like to make well. No no no not not in two thousand twenty eight gave you the big buildings builder. People would be surprised by me. Because i always a believer brazilian. I'm very proud of being resilient. And i am still an and we do have an amazing opportunity to be one of the best countries in soft power so perhaps in a few years will be there the top of the list but honestly i mean this year has been terrible for brazil president. He's an isolationist. he's not handling very well. The situation in the rain forest which matters a lot for the outside world. Perhaps those of us who enjoy breathing so exactly. But i mean it. It is an issue in brazil. but i notice. We've all my friends when they say. Oh how during forest the amazon. Your president doesn't care. And of course his declaration sometimes every day he said something quite offensive to specific groups. And it's funny. I was trying to say i mean. What is brazil doing. well now we. We are student load of great things but even at football you have. Our biggest star neymar liked by some. But he's but even in brazil. Laura people don't like neymar like perhaps some aspects of his personality. So then i think even football. We're not so well liked turfing. We need to improve. I am an optimistic. I think things will change but two thousand twenty is yeah. I agree it. It's not the year of brazil. And i do think this year has been a blip for a lot of countries and as i was saying you know cultural experts from italy. Obviously still very strong italian food still eating around the world unloved around the world especially on this table but this year it was all about the countries that had cut through and what the cut through was what the stories that were resonating around. The world like fernandez. The amazon is what people were thinking about. When they thought about brazil they were not thinking of amazing beaches. Or you know wonderful culture and things like that it was the bad headlines that were really being projected around the world just finally in this first part of the show. I am going to rise heroically above complaining too much about the struggles exclusion in favor of new zealand. And just let these self evident absurdity of that speak for itself but meghan there couple of other countries which again have shoes soft power in princeton fact arguably the countries with the to hugest soft power imprint i e the united kingdom and the united states neither of the mike it and is that just about covid nineteen and all the people who happened to be leading them at the moment. It is definitely down to leadership. Soft power is usually something that is built up over years and decades so usually it can survive a bad year it can survive a wrong thinking government but in the case of the uk and definitely the us. It's not that. Diplomacy was neglected in the last few years. I mean we've seen a lot of policies that have been actually hostile to global cooperation. And i think a lot of people's perceptions of those countries have really shifted especially when it comes to the us under donald trump.

"Can you tell us some cool things and some maybe some tips and tricks for how you can thrive in a hybrid environment. Yeah definitely been It's truly been a whirlwind as an educator in the classroom of trial and error for sure. But i've been trying out teaching in my class. Different things such as rotations enduring are high flex time so instead of teaching synchronous lee and the classroom i've been actually teaching my virtual kids first and then teaching my class kids second so What we do is we build up to. We're building up essentially to a station rotation model for blended learning space. I teach my virtual group. I while i while my in class kids engaged in a retrieval practice activity based around concepts that. We've already learned to commit that information to long term. Memory retrieval practices one of my newest favorite professional development pieces. You tell me like. I'm a kindergartner. What is what's retrieval practice. And why is it getting a lot of hype right now. So retrieval practice will i i. I need to Really put out there. That patrice bain and pooja. Argh wall who wrote powerful teaching It's one of the professional developments that were actually doing our district right. Now have written this amazing book to talk. About how retrieval practice which is the practice of actually pulling information out of our brain is so important in the education setting because a lot of what we do in education is encoding so we give students information but we never really ask them to remember that information until it's a high stakes environment such as an assessment. So the idea. Around retrieval practice is that we are giving them more opportunities and a low stakes environment in order to allow them to practice their remembering of information and concepts and the ideas that we can get foundational information down and pat so that we can move onto those higher level. Like bloom's taxonomy of creating an analyzing in order to have a more Successful classroom environment and have students understanding concepts at higher levels. The that's fascinating so basically having kids dig back for information helps them. Actually learn is kind of what retrieval does shocking. Right like practice remembering you. You drive to one place you practice driving that place. You're going to remember that route no matter what and then it just becomes you drive there and text of the same time. I hope not or listen to rain So i interrupted you. Sorry so what's going on hybrids with retrieval and all that stuff. Sorry no problem. That was a great no background to what the my in class kids are. Actually doing while. I'm teaching my virtual students. So students are working on retrieval activities and while they work independently on those retrieval activities. Which again are based on previous concepts. So it's independent. Because they know it and they won't need my support for it. I give a mini lesson to my students at home and we do guided practice. And then i send them on their way to finish the rest of the independent work and then i teach again my second mini lesson all over again with students in the classroom and i found that by teaching in rotations. Like this i was better able to connect with each group of students especially in the elementary setting. They know when. You're talking to the what i call the zuma's and when you talk to the rumors zuma's in room just some of that so it's been a really great way to build that capacity with students in the room and then also online and then i've also found some like to really big tidbits. This year is that it's important to go. Slow to go fast Modeling and practicing how to use these different online platforms and tools to help build their capacity. So that they can masterfully. Use it on their own And then also making That homework incredibly scaffold so that they also again have that capacity to do it independently and be able to provide an extension for students who are able to move through the material quickly and then the scaffold portion if they were moving through it at a normal pace than they could just stop with the independent essentially. So it's been an adventure We're finding what works for us and truly getting into group at this point.

Brexit negotiations suspended as member of EU team tests positive for COVID-19

"The European Union's chief negotiator on a post Brexit deal with Britain has said talks with his British counterpart will be suspended for a short period as a member of the EU team has tested positive for coronavirus. Michele Barnier said the two sides would continue their work while fully respecting coronavirus guidelines. His neck beak, crucially that remain in contact. We think over Zuma's well, these negotiations will continue and remember so much of this process has taken place during the pandemic, where they've had to deal with restrictions on not being able to be in the same room on quite a few occasions. But you know, this could have come frankly, at a worse

"Yeah. This is where you can you you hear this and for any real Neil Fan. You see him fucking it. He does just swinging his guitar. Looks like a fucking muppet and his hairs going fucking Neil. This is bringing in a fuck and blue whale for crosby. seriously. fucking spout as it right, yeah! Yeah Ashley. Baby Beluga. Hold on is David. Crosby actually Offi? Could be the same person possible, and it's possible. Can I read the Louis quote. For. LURID considered the guitar playing on Danger Bird to be the best he had ever heard stating. It makes me cry. It's the Best I've heard in my life. The guy is a spectacular guitarist. Those melodies are so marvelous so calculated constructed note by note he must have killed to get those notes it puts. My hair is on end. Yeah that's from from Lou, Lou. Reed, who fucking hates everything I hate it. I'm sorry he's dead now. When Lou Reed loves something. If you've never read it going on Talk House, he talks about Jesus icon. You really and it's you love even if he does even if you don't like that album, it's just awesome. Read I used to live for us. Yeah, we probably died like a year or two after that. He hasn't been gone too long. I thought it was like five or six years ago. Yeah, but that came out in two thousand thirteen, okay? Hey. Do do yourself a favor youngsters. If you want to know what it's like smoking meth for five days straight listen to metal machine, Music Iliescu. Yes, decides. This. That's why I like Lou Reed Because Similar to kneel like very made metal machine music because of the success of take a walk on the wild side. And just said you know what Fine Fuck you here's sheet music. The attitude is very similar grace. Yeah, I love artists. Who Do that who they're just? Like this thing, guess what? It's kind of weird. Though. I know only works out if you actually like their music. No well. That's why we we've said that almost every episode. I think that that's why we like Neil Because, he doesn't give a fuck. Yeah, and he's definitely not boring. You have no idea what's coming next right? You know, and and so even with those albums that were sort of dreading, right? You can't say that it's not Neil because that's who he is. He's always there. He's not going to give you what you think you you deserve or you expect right. He's GonNa give you what the fuck he feels like giving you, so you hated Zuma, but you're still invested right and so no matter. What if you just think that's the worst albums ever made right? You'RE GONNA. Still check out that stuff continues to this day. It does it does for me Colorado didn't blow me away, but like I loved them was peace trail like a few years ago. Like yeah, so every now and then he hits you with psychedelic pill was added nine. No, you guys will lose into that. That's a great one. He's still he's taking left turns. And keep us interest Ya and doing what he feels. He's just as relevant. And even he wants seventy to like what he's doing right now and even he admits that they're not all great right he'll. He'll later on say oh. That was a mistake or whatever, but he said you know that's what an album is. I'm GONNA paraphrase now. You know you make it. It's done that's what it is. You can't change it. You just gotTa move on and do whatever you feel should be next right right so just for the sake of. Touching on all the neal themes that we all always sort of seemed to do just as a thing as normal thing, I do want to go back to the lyrics a little bit because I want to talk about the freedoms just prison line. Yeah, because to me, it's that same duality battle that we've talked about time and time again with Neil. And also in the keep bringing it up and I gotta just get it. This Johnny Rogan book where he goes through like a giant. Song or whatever. He's he. He says that the titular bird is a metaphor for a doomed relationship so again we have a relationship thing here. Yeah, and also I get. It relationships are tough, but also being alone and single is if not just as tough it's so it's that duality thing to me again with these lyrics and I'll read that prison. It says and I and I know we should be free, but freedom is just a prison to me with the rain pounding on his back. He recalls the moment that he cracked because I lied to keep in. A Won't read all that part, but just that first part there is. I don't know if it's necessarily the same thing as we've talked about before with the fame and everything, but the relationship aspect is definitely there and freedom being you know it's that same sort of thing what's worse? What's better? What's worse being single being in a relationship where you don't know what to do when she? Your partner starts crying all these things. Is that what he's so? Is that what he's referring to? When he says the jailbird takes the rap I think it might eagle on the tracks and there's the train. Train reference and even though it's probably a small Lyonel. Train I was GONNA say you know it's still the train references there. You guys talked about how he's into train, but you didn't bring up. Have you gotten to the point? He becomes the president of Lionel, no. Sorry spoiler alert. Forget. Everything. He does the thing you know the car thing. You know the electric car thing that all that stuff he he's GonNa do what he's GonNa do it all the way. Yeah, he likes model trains I'M GONNA fucking by Lionel Yeah I'm going to be the president of Lionel Model. Other great thing to actually own all dangerous birds. The bottom. Silent. I'll make you a flock of condors. Craft. Neil thing is. You brought up the link volt right, and so the link was this old Lincoln that he had any he made, turns it into like an electric car, and he still drives it around. Today does like tours with and Shit. But what I love about Neil that he sort of had this idea, and he met with like executives to try to start getting this electric cars thing some form of it going. Long before Tesla was only ever thought. But the great thing about Neil is now. He's like now, Hill. I've watched interviews racist like yeah, you know in all. These guys have to just watch Tesla. And he just will say like Tesla's Tesla did it. You know that's great. Good for Tesla. He's not. He doesn't Care He. He's just like yeah. If someone wants to do it, fucking do it is on his part of what he's saying is the reasons why I do this stuff is so that someone else will come along and do a better right like he doesn't mind failing. No, he doesn't, and it says he knew. That! That, was the wrong time for that. Because these big clunky sound devices were on their way out, and it was going towards streaming, but we have better streaming quality now. Because of how you can look into this, Neil young has a huge part in why the streaming quality that you get now has become better, and there's other like when you use his APP. You go through A. System that has like some of the best stream equality, and that wouldn't have happened without Neal's whole. Porno thing you know, and so he doesn't mind admitting defeat as long as it brings us to a better place as a people. It's like Neal's filmmaker during the past. He's like well. You know. I wanted to do it now. I know I did it and they're going to do something else? Yeah, yeah, you know I'm sure there's been people who were inspired by that to me. Right? Yeah! Yeah that's.

"Because because you know what I think he was doing. I think he was trying to pull a little rockets Karma on Neil. You know how that whole thing about blood on the tracks is that he recorded it didn't like it went to Minnesota and found these like no name. Guys as band and I did he recorded, and then he recorded real quickly, and that's the version day. This May. Depend on the tracks seventy five then. Seventy five. I think he was scouting out the horse probably was you know he was like I wonder Neil. Neil loves these guys I love Neil. Young. I want to see what what all the hubbub is about. Maybe I can use them for blood on the tracks. Imagine what blood on the tracks would have sounded like crazy imaginative picture area with real win. This was recorded because. Their release apparently of blood on the tracks. January, of seventy five. Okay, never mind. The release of this was like November yeah. I mean it's all floating time line right so maybe. I wouldn't. I wouldn't put it past Bob Dylan to check I. wouldn't even worse and say hey, you guys WanNa make! Shady. Fuck and I love blood on the tracks. What is really good, well I just can't imagine him fronting crazy crazy horse. Is Neil Young? Yeah, so you're just well. He said to kneel. He said quote. Your band has a good beat, but they can't play. And then Nielsen Neal shot back well, they can play with you. Bob Because this is after he just played with them for like a whole night. Or something like that, so that was an interesting twist. Yeah, I like that. I didn't know that I had no idea. That would have been awesome free in the history if you stole that band away and then Neil had to call George Wetzel in the violin player guy. You guys helped me out. Of Karma. Seekers get rusty back. You should sick rusty Kershaw on Dylan. Yeah we could have got more leave on. Maybe. There's another time line with that. Leave on. That's true maybe. It'd be awesome to hear him with fucking with the whole gang. Be Awesome with fucking cars dude guards, playing his insane organ, Shit and Richard Banging away on a honor that was why I know. It was nice sweet. I was so excited to hear homegrown and. We'll talk and you know what else We mentioned like a hurricane being written, and they tried to record this time.

"What is it and why am I so fucking bad at it? Right and There's a lot of him. And why are the other people bad at it? You know. Is there any way to do this properly? Yeah I. Feel like it's for sure about love. It's just more of like a questioning for sure. Yeah, well. He said that this was the first time in his life around this time where he got out of a relationship and didn't want to just go ahead and get into another one. Yeah, okay now, so he he kind of and if you read up about the how they were living around this time, and around the recording of this album, that's very true. There is a lot of women. Going in and out, they were going out to the bars every night. You know Poncho was quite the ladies man he's got, and I'm sure with Briggs. Looks like yeah back in the day. That picture. Is a picture standing by the boat? Ponchos looking dude right there, but that was definitely going there was and you know what this. You know so you have. Time fades away. And then it gets if you go in the order that at really went in. Tonight's the night it was just it's just got really like angry. And then kind of like murky with all the Tequila. And then there was the honey slide album with on the beach, and that was just kind of a serial and kind of layered and dreamlike, and then this that you throw this one on, and you know what this is, this is that eight ball. That six thirty in the morning I've been up. All weekend gotta go fucking work. Let's get an eight ball. Get me through this fucking Monday as POW. It's bright. Super like crunchy yell. At sonically, it's just wakes. Right up from the very from the very first even through the slower stuff, so I I originally disagreed with you a little bit about the order, not not disagree, but like I said I liked how he released them, but hearing Zuma throwing that into the mix I. Think you're I think I tend to agree with you more that maybe on the beach should. came after because that on the beach into Zuma. Deal it's like a real good deal. It's like it's like you've been sick for like a few days. I don't know if. This right so you've been in bed for a few days, and the shades are down, even trying to sleep, or whatever and your gross, and you feel a little better, and you open up those shades, and you open up the windows and get fresh air comes in the light comes in. This is what Zuma is to me. After the ditch trilogy, it's opening up the shades and the windows, and then getting back out there even though he's still heartbroken. Still feels like shit. He's like like we talked about on the beach. He's moving on. Yet right he's. He's going on with his life. He's going to drag all the baggage with him, but he's going to. You know he's GonNa live life now. He's going to be more live. Yeah, you know it feels less like. Blatantly emotional and it like workmanlike in like in a good way. He's like. Let's get this done like this like I wanNA make a rock. Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah! It feels like he's like all right. Are saying this before recording yet? It's like he learned all this stuff and he's like all right. Let's put this together and make it the best. Guys I love working with. A good for. Her I was GONNA say this album's definitely a little cleaner which is. Weird that it's with crazy. Cleaner. It's tighter. The sound is clean. To take away from the? I was I was like also like Yvonne my professional sounding in a while. I wouldn't go that far I want to quote the Great Carole King Yeah, after Neil her neil friends, and and he plays Zoom for her and she said. I want to get this right here. Oh, she said. Neal. Why don't you make real record? Hey Carole King. Why don't you know I'm just kidding now first of all? You can't bash carole king because she's not like she's some fucking Ditz. Know who's just like you know saying that off the cuff. This is a woman went through Tin Pan Alley, wrote some amazing, fucking huge hits at an album that sold ten zillion copies, but her album tapestry is everything. Neil young hated. Above music at that time, and that's why he you've got Zuma because he didn't WanNa. Make that. Eventually, he did with fucking long. May you run? But like a year later, right, you're right, I mean you could say. The end of this album is an intro to that fucking runny stream of. Law Yeah a fucking diarrhea idea like the album. She wanted him to make like comes around when it's like harvest moon, you know like that era. Well, that's what everybody because we were talking in the harvest episode. That's the one neil young album. Everybody knows even the Non Neil fans have that because of the songs. Just like immaculately produced, and it's that like, but that's not why you love if you don't if you don't like this like. Yeah Stop The podcast right now. Yeah I mean don't occurs. Actually. Don't actually gone now. Please youngster like me. Kid Him, guys. Can we talk about Zuma? Did you look into what yeah? I was like what does that even fucking meet Zuma? Beach is that par Malibu he lived in right? Okay, so humongous. Rambo. I was just looking into what and like I found that there was like an indigenous group of like hunter-gatherers from northern Mexico. And Western Texas I saw this whole. There was like when you look into Zuma like just google. Assumed most of my life that it was just short for Montezuma right well, they're going. To, but I I just wanted to see if there was anything and I didn't know if you had found well I, he found both those. It's that he bought a house there. He was like next door to David Briggs House. who was a neighbor of Goldie Hawn? So Goldie Hawn was in the neighborhood. But that's that strip of be. He bought like the last house. There must have been that had the strip out right? Kurt Russell was there, too. Big Stitching wash the wall with women and building on a woman. But then there was the Montezuma thing because this is like he always had this interest in indigenous people and that store and then Cortez. The killer is on the. There's also to that. I. Don't know if you saw this in. Assuming! It's true is that he's he. He says that. Don't cry, no tears, and and also Cortez came from in high school when he had. To prevent. which is basically. Yeah which. is crazy diary. which to you is just long. May you run the album? Long you have i. read something different. I read that he ate like five cheeseburgers before we went to bed and then when he woke up in the morning. The words came to him. Cortes a killer. Bring us up when we went over this song, but I'm going to have that after that Deon I'm like getting really tired of Neil. Of, his descriptions of writing some of my favorites, so that's why I said in the was the first episode, so fucking tired of like. Listening to Cortez, the killer of again like. Weeping at time, possibly one of the best songs ever, and he's just like I had diarrhea. Cheeseburgers! That's that's why I dropped that up in one of the first episode. FIGURE OUT A way. Every time you'll get sick just like it's literally shits out really Great Song I. Don't believe literally soon. Love it because I just think it's like. It's it. It adds to that mythos like first of all I. do think you know most most people say like my best song came to me like nothing. You know what I mean, and then it's like obviously this guy I'm looking at a poster of Waseda. Unbelievably talented, so like sure maybe at the Shit's. What's funny to.

"Horse deals like like. Yeah right and he worked with Neil on other stuff without crazy horse like Neil, young blue notes. Poncho Poncho like a big part of that? apparently weld. Poncho Mixed Weld, oh no shit! Yeah, and well like Oh. We didn't hear because. Ralph Molina I. Think didn't like it, so he went back in and remixed it and Neil went with that mix, and that kind of you know, but after that time where the his friends offered to take Neil Out Frank San Pedro always said crazy horse was my second thing. Because from that point on I realized that we could just be tossed away like nothin' at any moment so he always had other business deals business. I'm using the bunny is. Deals going on that. Would you know? Bring in some money or something like that, and what's interesting to me is like. Crazy horse was such a unique sound, and this sounds different with San Pedro but Still is very much crazy horse in that. It's just that loose like. It's just so much of that has to do with billy and Ralph just because they. They know Neil so well and. They've played with Neil for so long. and. and has quotes in particular about like playing with Ralph. As a drummer. And then also billy. The rhythm section means a lot when it comes to. This type of sound. and. So I think that a lot of that attributes to to those guys because they've been. They've been steady. Because it was neal's, it took over. When Frank Left. Yeah, I believe. And played with him between. Tonight's the night and now like on record. he may be on trans. I know nils way. Album though he was in the. PUCK OFF! He was in the touring band for that tour yeah yeah yeah he's played with him. I know he's played about on record. That's what. It's actually don't know that either. Via I'm going youngster. Yeah, let us know. Let us know, read our facebook page out there. Yeah, on twitter. Long at long me, you young and this is. The first albums supposedly after the ditch trilogy right, and which which I. Crazy horse album since everybody knows the snow, I like full-on crazy. This is the first one that he credited them. Like on the album cover it, says Neil Young, and then it says crazy horse right below. That everybody. Also we? We forgot to mention the album cover of for tonight's the night, and so we had recently gone over it. Picture Neil on the beach, but we're gonNA. Talk about every album that it was like it was paper. Is that what you're talking about they also. Tried to always talk. We want to talk about each album cover so I was just GonNa say maybe we should spend some time with it, but we don't do that now on because it's a pretty funny story wall on Zuma, will. But I'm just saying obviously we should talk about Zuma but I didn't know if we should talk about tonight's the night. We did because I brought up Russia shaming. Zone tonight tonight. That was it was because I thought we talked about it. As a youngster! On not on are not. The night. Although let's go to the on. Yeah, all right as a youngster. I think you guys talked about the tonight's the night album cover during the. Where all youngsters following along at home! Please, jot down that if you'd like the tonight's the night album cover coverage. You're going to go to the on the road. I really go back and forth with it like sometimes someone will say youngster, and I love it and then other times I really do cringe a little bit it's. Pretty cringe. I think it's pretty great. Let's I think McDonald's as our resident youngster. Lame in hot up, let's put it. Let's put it on a trucker hat, and then we'll see how we feel after that. Okay all right, I'm a youngster. Yeah, we talked about. Being printed on. Glitter pack on blotter paper, so it would deteriorate over time. I think the way. It's just a IT'S A. Picture of Neil doing that water face character sort of. The last is on seersucker jacket and welcome to Miami. Beach Zuma water face I like that name what I think I think it's because of. because. He was crying. Yeah, I think that's what that means like, so we have the glasses on to cover the water face. Yeah, I said to that I I'm pretty sure. His astrological sign is a water sign and I didn't know if that had anything to do with it. It's too bad. No one told them to not cry any tears anymore. Yeah, or at least around. The old tears. The Zuma album cover though. It looks like he drew it on a Napkin in ten minutes. He, Dan dried thought he don't know his friend. Here's an ours for NASIO. Yeah, that's what. I. Read that I read that. He drew that picture. No, he didn't draw the picture Manziel. Drew Neil told him all these ideas he wanted, so manziel drew up like five or six sketches Gotcha to just for Neil to approve before he continued working on it and Neil grabbed the one. That's the cover Zuma's a this, is it? This is perfect as okay I'll work on that good. No, we're using this. percent minutes it's like he said that he said he got paid like five grand for ten minutes. Worth of work, honest yes. And Neil's like this. Really this is it. This is what we're using. There's like a middle finger Bush. Bush or is it a hole in the ground? Only with the middle finger growing out of it. Yeah, see the jacket. The disc jacket to it's got. He's got a little sketches on. Check itchy. These are probably the other sketches. The ad we'll throw these into. That's great. The big big. Sky That's danger bird. That's what I always thought to but that. Speak Absurd here's Cortez the killer, the ship the background. Think about that. Meet the. Carey. Did she have she's in this album she's she's all the this whole. Every single song is about their relationship. It was interesting listening to this like lift listening to you guys as podcast because it's definitely apparent through this that he's like heartbroken in single again on this album. Yeah, it comes through. Yeah, this this one. It's not like a winey album. Really, but there's that heartsick it to me. It's more yeah it doesn't necessarily feel whiny. It feels more like. Deal is asking the question. What really is romantic? And how do I do it? Yes, how do I find?.

He reformed crazy horse with San Pedro then he left crazy horse, because he was going to get back with CSM Y, for like a little bit of a tour, and then he broke up with them, not broke up with him, but called it off with them to do something with stills, and then right after that album stopped doing shit with stills, and went back a crazy horse, or something all that, but in a different order. Okay, so they did that. Crosby stills, Nash and young did that seventy four tour that was at the time, the biggest money tour ever in rural, except for crosby stills Nash and young. I think they. Made something like a couple hundred thousand dollars each. Bill Graham, who took over for Neil's manager Elliot Roberts. Who took over the tour? He made like eleven. Million Dollars I think. And that was the first really big commercial tour Joni. Mitchell was on that tour. And so there were like logos like crosby stills, Nash and young. had their own pillow cases they had you know all the drugs and whatever they wanted backstage, and were they, so it was like the managers were making sure they had everything they wanted while they were kind of sweeping the money under the rug for themselves, and so that's why and they didn't really play very well because they weren't really a band. They kind of just met on stage every night. and. There wasn't a lot of like hanging out as a band like Neil. Neil was like obviously the most like old d you know diy guy. Yeah, he had his own old fucking car and he drove around. He kept a typewriter in the back and he's like anybody who drove with him. He encouraged them to write something down while they were in the back and seven. He wrote a lot I. Know fucking. Original hipster right and he would he would get back there and write a lot of stuff to and take a polaroid of me new in the front. Yeah, like you know. He brought his son Zeke on that tour with them and. But it was just A. They just didn't play well. There was a lot of in fighting. So what year was that was seventy four? So after that. He wanted to get back with crazy horse and I forget how that happened. But. They tried to record something at Chess Studios. In Chicago because who wouldn't WANNA do that. Know record where fucking muddy water reported his records, you know. And so that's where Frank San. Pedro came in is so from. Where did he come from? For example so yeah, let's talk about frank, because this is your first taste to Frank San Pedro. The, Guitar Player and the Guy, who! At, at Times Neil, young and even Ben, Keith called him the glue. Like he was able I for through charm or wit, or whatever able to keep people together working together somehow, so Frank San Pedro was like he was born in Virginia, but then his family moved to Detroit where he got into a Shitload of trouble as a teenager, and he went to jail, and he sold drugs totally involved in crime. And to the point where his parents said you know, get the fuck out here. So he moved to southern California where he pretty much said the same thing, and he was going back and forth over the Mexican border. You know bringing in drugs and stuff like that. He was involved in a lot of shady business deals and He. Much like David Briggs was able to wash the wall with women. Those are his words about David. Briggs not my. So apparently wall. Yeah, apparently he had. He had a lot of girlfriends and stuff so. Yeah Poncho, so he met Jill. I Don't know if you're keeping that in, but that's another name for Franks campaign right? Yeah, they call him Joe, so he meets billy. Talbot at a party, and they go off some room and start playing guitar bass player for crazy all right, thank you and. He'd been put like San Pedro of plan. Guitar in bands since he was a teenager, I never really pursued it seriously. He used to play an your pro I. Hate cut you off. No. One of my favorite things I read about him as he used to play along to. Everybody knows this where that's right. Yeah, just so fucking cool! He loved that album, and and that's how he learned how to play a lot of guitar, and so to me, you know Billy Talbot. Is huge thing so they. They got no room. This are playing guitar together. They hit it off. There's probably a lot of drugs involve. Because Pancho was like pretty known for just doing every drug, he could possibly do all the same time. which is so funny here to after tonight's the night. I've already. That's what I keep going back to. This guy replaced Danny whitten cool. Neil literally wrote three albums about I. Mean not completely like no, but he was there in. In about how he like he misses it. He misses him. He felt responsible. And how the? Damage done like, and then He. Guy Who. I read on Iraq same thing and also doing the same thing I read one of their first tours when I think when they were torn Zuma in Europe. San Pedro went to pick up heroin with Neil in the car, and that's the story I brought up a few weeks. Neil jumping out of the car right, yeah, the guy! Who replaced the Guy who died of heroin trying to buy? Heroin jumped out of the car and typewriter fell out behind. The whole albums worth of stuff. But so. They bring Poncho to chess studios without telling Neil. Oh I didn't know that. They said Hey, you gotta give this guy a chance. He's pretty cool doesn't say like Oh a great guitar player because he's not. He's asleep. Disguise really cool. I think you'll like them, and so they get together, and they tried to record some stuff, and it's just a complete fucking masks, and they can't do it so. Pancho thinks that's his fault, because he's not a great musician, so he goes to talk to nearly say look. I'm real, sorry. I don't have to be involved in this and Neil said no, no, no! This is good. I like what's going on here and he's like listen. We'll get back together and we'll do some stuff together. Only Neil, right you'll saw. Going on that this is completely falling apart terrible total waste of time and money. I loved that's Great. No? This is good. This is a good thing. That's an F.. N.. An moment right there, too. So, that's that's how frank came into into being in an apparent. Apparently, he was just A. A real. A Real Wheeler and dealer. And he had a lot of criminal friends as mentioned earlier couple. Who offered to you know, take out Neil for dumping crazy horse for a tour. FUCKING NUTTY Let them in the band and. Want us to kill they take him out. But not only let him in the Ben Apparently. He rubbed neil the right way eventually because he stayed in crazy.

Though we listen to like mostly prog rock when I was in college. No in high school I remember I bought. The bands brown album, and after the gold rush at the same time, which was a fucking. Roy To. Yeah, if you don't have the bands brown album by what's on that one Let's up on career. Rings on their. Own. With the words, Cripple Creek in one of the so yeah pretty much well, it was it was Kismet. Though pretty much right that I got those you because I felt like they were a pair because Greek.

Will you know what it's a secret favorite reminded jawbone? fucking love because. The Bass riff that that. It's like Oh so good, so I will say as far as like music, musical tastes, superiority, and I even hate to bring this up, but there are two people coming to mind my buddy tokens, and then matlock Raza whenever I listened to a new album I. always text him. What do you think this? he's. He just always had a really good that we hin on like new music old music stuff like that. Do you have or have had blogs in the past? Yeah, yeah, I was like I was starting a blog, and then I got married, so it basically yeah got sucked. Go to the sideline for that kind of a big life change. Out Megan, thanks for ruining my thanks. Huge Dreams Meghan. Dust there introduce you guys to Dawes Right, which I. Asked me does for sure yeah, another band that gets brought up every yeah. I don't feel bad about that because I do love. And Weird Al Yeah. I always think of whenever listen to town meeting. I'm like I wonder if there'd be win win. The first introduction, you had maybe a big brag the first introduction you had to. Neal was when you bought those two albums. Yeah, no, I mean like I knew who he was and like I urge hits on the radio like growing up then, but then it was like I got after the gold rush and I was like Holy Shit and I started listening to. I I think I bought anything that was available at the time. Which is why I'm not as familiar like most people would time because it wasn't on CD. Let me. Ask You a question when I. I told you that we me Russ and Mike. We're doing this podcast. You said you. You need to have me on Zuma. Yeah, why? This album in particular! Well, here's the this is what's funny about that. I'm glad you asked right so. Luke asks me what's your favorite? You know Neil album. What do you WanNa come on the PODCAST for right and? I'll spoil it right in front. Zuma's not my favorite oriented Zuma. Because this is like the underrated gem for me like this is the one that I was like not as familiar with okay I was like you know what it's GonNa. Be Fun to come on to get more familiar with it in the lead up to it. Okay, and then be here for like I. Don't know why that's how I picked it because I was like. On the beach or or tonight's the night, which are probably, does you okay there so? I mean that's like just well. Tread favorites for everybody and I was like wow, okay! Yeah, yeah, so I just figured I was like this'll be more fun. You'll learn about a new album. That's cool what? What is your talk? What is your favorite? Oh Shit view had. Is it on the beach? It's not my I think my favorite is I think my favorite is. Everybody knows US nowhere and I didn't see so. That was the one I was GONNA pick, but I was like that's a second album, and let them get their feet underneath themselves right podcast, so that's when I like moved off well. Thanks for doing that. You've given us that space to. Sure Yeah Yeah Yeah. I'm so gracious, very gracious youngster. Grace's youngster. The Gracious. Thank you. Well everybody knows this is nowhere still my number, one yeah. I wanted to ask you guys if you could rank them. Oh boy, I don't know about this one. Well Deangelis I should've said before actually send me four. Can. Angela's don't ruin my question. I would. I would say when we get to ten. We should definitely do this. We do our best to rank them. I don't even know if I could do that right now. Changes, all the time for me. That's what I've been like thinking. Coming into this, so every everyone knows this is nowhere as my number one. Yeah, then. I'd say tonight's the night. Then I'd go after the Goldrush. See then I go on the beach. Okay Yeah Yeah Yeah I'd have to think about I couldn't do it right now off the top of my head i. don't think I could. Could you know yeah I couldn't right well. Everyone knows it's nowhere. Tonight's the night. See I go after the gold rush and honestly on the beach I go next. Really really on the beach wouldn't even make my top five relate yeah. Not Near as Mike shut up Rusk Angelos Deangelis. and. Let's let's let's save the ranking you know. What. We should when we do. We Still GonNa do like the decade. Run Yeah a mixed. Yeah, let's incorporate that to up to that point. The ten year mark will will do it. Try to rank them up to that point that okay. All right but Zuma, Zuma is going to be in my top five. I love the cell well, this is I'm glad I picked this and did it the way I did. I know that's kind of a pain in the ASS. Because maybe I've less important things to say about it, but I'm glad I did. Because this album is really grown in my estimation, it's like I. It's ready. I feel like this is the album where he like all the strings come together, and it's like no now I know like I feel like to. This point is career even though some of his best albums before here, right? He didn't know like what He. He was doing fully like he was still growing. Yeah, and this is the record where like everything comes together right the Neil young like we know today. At least the young crazy horse's starting to fully form especially guitar right his. This is one of his best guitar albums ever, and it's also the first album or that signature sound to me yet. Really come you get a little bit of that on southern man. You know that squealing kind of like Neil individually or like crazy horse. Neil's guitar playing okay is is just fantastic on this record in that that sound that. It's like A. it's such like a crazy just. Screaming. Like. Hurt Coyote Wailing Trying to chew off its own leg, I'm a trap. You know what I just like howling like N., but but. It's evolved obviously since, but this is like the the roots of the sound Saudi has now. In like down by the river or like even no, no, no, I don't. He is playing was great. Yeah, it's not this particular sound sound like. Now, it's like. Greg me if I'm wrong if he's using feedback in a different way now, too, yeah is like. If you listen to danger bird, it starts with that like. Slowing good. And he's he's a master of manipulating. Yeah, but I I agree that I feel like this album is when you really starting to. Yes. He did it before, but it's something. Listen to listen to some later stuff like listen to broken Arrow or listen to like wailed. Yeah and. His Guitar Can, just split mountains. Yeah, right down the middle you know it can carve out fucking canyons. Just each note is like just just just another heaving fucking acts just coming down, and just yeah, and then at the same time he can manipulate the.

Actually about blow jobs get. I. Forget what it's called stupid. No it was good. That one was like about. It was more of a historical look at Neil.

That that extra voice you here in the Corner Is Matlock Rosza Aka. Oh, that's me came at a came Matt K. The little boy just stumbled into our studio. They're youngsters were welcomed. That's right I'm the first youngsters referred to as the quintessential youngster. People are people are saying that now. You're the one who were you committed to it. It's bad now because I've been watching the Jeffrey Epstein. So now it's like I. Even like saying the word when I'm actually referring to someone who's just young.

Being! We don't really know I. Mean Neil May. Enjoy twelve year old humor, yeah! It has a little bit and never gets old I. Honestly think about it.

The Russ has been mentioned in the archives for a while. If you don't know what we're talking about, Neil Young archives. It's A. It's an APP that you can get get hip to archives. I knew I do know about the archives I don't have the APP, but I've been to the website so the sound, the sound quality I didn't think I would notice but I know she totally immediately. Yeah, like the danger bird. Yeah, Homesh, hear them like moving dantonio yeah. On the archives APP it's it definitely gives you can. If you go into settings, you can choose the hi. Rez option right, and that's what I did, and it made a world of a difference, but they do have an option to where you can write a letter to the editor. And I saw all these. There's a section on on the archives thing where Neil like responds to things that people write to for real. Yeah, and so I wrote this long winded, stupid thing where I basically plugged now he's never. Known you're kissing. plugged. Listening to the road that memoir at the beginning of Jerry Maguire.

There's another corruption story in South Africa these days the inquiry into corruption allegations against former president Jacob Zuma. What's going on there indeed? There's a lot of corruption stories. <hes> you know making headlines here in South Africa now the former President President Jacob Zuma appeared last week before a commission of a traditional commission of inquiry and his basically accused of enabling corruption and awarding lucrative government contracts to his friends and close associates and all of this is alleged to have happened in the nine years that the former President Jacob Zuma was in office. I is there a connection between <hes> besieged anyway <hes> Qorbani and the the the inquiry into Jacob Zuma I mean as Inqui- Rabbani Been Investigating Jacob Zuma not at all because no one had actually brought a complaint against President Jacob Zuma. You'd recall that just a few months before President Jacob Zuma the former President Jacob Jacob Zuma was forced out of office. He's the one who appointed was Quebec in his presence as part of his presidential duties. That is why some people believe that was assume Quebec is who we supposedly supposed to be politically neutral you know has links to Jacob Zuma and is is alleged to be taking instructions from a faction which is linked to the former president but Musuem Kwabena herself denies is these claims I gotta say from the outside it does look like there's a lot of corruption in South Africa and the countries in the middle of a major reckoning over what to do about it at the highest levels is that the sense you get and how do South Africans think the the country is GonNa get through this well. A lot of South Africans are pinning their hopes on the fact that South Africa's judiciary is independent and that whatever findings I found when anyone is found to corrupt because it is a now there's a new president whoever is found to be corrupt will be brought to book even so Ramaphosa himself when he came into office he promised to root out corruption and South Africans are seriously pinning. The hopes that that that promise that was made by the by the sitting president will actually take place my BBC colleague Maseko speaking with us from Johannesburg. Thanks very much and I'm sorry thank you so much for having me saying in South Africa for now but with a much more lighthearted story it's about a man who is arguably the most famous taxi driver in the country now and he's hoping his big break as an opera singer is just around the corner the B._B._C.'s Mohammed Ali has that story on when she went on a business trip to Devon Kim Davy could hardly have imagined that Uber driver men's even Goma would be serenading her to try to Manziel discovered that he's self taught opera singer and due to the lack of opportunity in South Africa he drives Uber to support his family awesome. If if you wouldn't mind singing for me which he obliged and as soon as he started to sing his voice just gave me response. I couldn't believe that man with such talent was unable to use his talent.
