Christmas in Holland
"Let's start with what the holidays were like growing up in the netherlands. That's where lisbeth enhanced was born and raised. Thank you said. I should go on radio. Yeah i think so. I'd love to hear what. Christmas is like in your memory. Let's pretend your five year old girl in small town in the netherlands and christmas eve what do you what did you just do. What's happening tonight. And what happens tomorrow. Oh well you see for us. Christmas was really a family. Feast because probably you know in the netherlands. Originally we never had gifts at christmas. It was the real religious holiday and a family holiday. In my case. I remember my mother started. Prepare the house to decorate it and she had little planks and we put mawson eat with a wire and then we put all kind of green leaves like hawley and other little objects to decorate the house and we fixed it on the wall and we put it on the table and then of course we made the wreath for the front door and then you were hoping it would be snowing on the right day. Because i remember the connie fear the big tree in our garden when there was snow on each and my father would put lights that was magic and then just before christmas. My mother came up with the real christmas tree. And you know when. I was really very young. We had real candles but the clip ons real candidates under the tree inside the house yes and there was a white sheet on the floor to protect the four and then there was a basket with water in case the tree would be set on fire so it was only allowed to light the candles when daddy nami were there and we hardly moved of course because there could be a fire but it was magic to see all these flames burning and then we got it a beautiful dog and it was too dangerous so we had to put electric lights but it was still very nice now for a little child. Who is there a santa claus figure that brings the gifts that seat because christmas without presents because our santa claus is called sinter glass and he has his birthday on the sixth of december. So that is the real exciting. Feast for gifts. And i really. I would be willing to set up an association to save that son abrasion. Because i think it's the most beautiful feast in the world. Why well first of all as a child. You believe in santa claus. He is bishop coming from spain on the big ship with his assistance. Who are black pitas. They are funny dressed and are doing funny things at croats. They are little bit naughty. And you're scared of him because he is the one who could eventually put you in the sack if you hadn't been a nice job but year cintas class is keeping book and he's writing in the book if you were good or bad sell. It is very well organized into netherlands because about three weeks before the six of december which is his birthday. He officially arrived on the big ship in amsterdam and this is transmitted on television. So you are looking at it because you know once. He's in the country. Your parents will allow you to put your old shoe at the chimney. Of course many people had central heating of a problem. But you find a solution you put your shoe in front of the door or whatever anyway. Some problems for a child to believe in san nikolas because one hour later after yet seen him arriving on television in amsterdam. He's arriving in your village as well and so you say to mother. How is that possible. So then she usually explains you while there is the real warm and he has assistance because there are so many children like you. The real one cannot cope with all that
All That Is Wicked
"This is dryden village in upstate. New york near ithaca. The first settler arrived here in seventeen ninety seven and it was eventually named after english poet. John dryden the small country village. They founded was quirky. Six mile creek was actually twenty miles long but the people who lived there were proud of their heritage. After the revolutionary war. The town became part of the military tract program. It was a government scheme that gifted each new york soldier hundreds of acres of land a type of payment for participating in the war the war of eighteen twelve drafted even more soldiers so more veterans came and some of its most notable early villagers were the scots. They were respected family. That was really well known for their contributions to the village but they were also known for the string of horrific murders in their family. Red light you can imagine this now lost snow on bravo. I'm a journalism professor at the university of texas and austin and now i've never really driven in the snow. It took me about an hour just to drive thirteen miles. From ithaca craig scott and i drive the back roads of dryden winding pass churches and fields to brookefield farm. This has been in his family for almost two hundred years. Another scutt kathy. Chadwick lives here with her son and her dog. Hannah ohana i wander around for awhile outside. Craig is a retired local businessman and politician who has lived off of scutt road for decades. The local cemeteries are filled with his ancestors. The scutt name rings royalty in dryden at least to me. He and cathy have hundreds of relatives in the county but they've never actually met most of them. What is it like to come from such a large family. I have two cousins vast family. We always run into people that we didn't know we were were part of a tree somewhere. I at least. I find that i went to the picnic a couple of years ago. And oh my word. Where did all this cuts come from. So it was a little surprising to me that the family was so extensive. The scots arrived in america. In the early sixteen hundreds from amsterdam they owned lumber mills clothing mills and thousands of acres of farmland. They felt blessed to be a part of such a close community. Gerald smith is a historian and nearby broome county and an expert on small town life in the eighteen hundreds. Everybody knows everybody else. Everybody would go over and help the neighboring farmer or two or three farms down. If there was a problem the barn burned down. There's a barn. Raising the family's patriarch in eighteen. Forty two was john scott. He was a fifty five year old decorated veteran in the war of eighteen twelve. John own this house which looks really small from the outside. But it's two stories with four bedrooms and a large basement a pretty impressive eighteen forties house that has stayed in the scott family for generations. A well with original slate stone sits just feet from the house. A murder of crows lives in a massive willow tree nearby. I can remember as a child coming out here to visit. It's not a bad thing to hang on a little bit to the past john. Scott was cathy chadwick's great great. Great grandfather he became a well known schoolteacher in dryden a leader in the village he was highly intellectual and very hard working and a little strict told me about the family. Valley's well perseverance stubborn. It's right up there on top of the list. My grandfather used to say man's only as good as his word could give somebody your word. Make sure you keep it. He always was stressing that yeah and that was something that i did as well and commitment to each other. Henry scott was john and hannah's second eldest child henry was trusting. His mother and father had raised their five girls and seven boys to always welcome the wandering men who stumbled onto their farm.

Scientist Jean Deenmamode on CDT testing
"I expect is scientists zoll teen mom. Won't he's going to talk to us about the cdt test. When i was drinking the wine every i was vaguely where i was harming myself but because i never saw any proof of that i just have. Don't doing it now if my daughter had done a cdt tests on me and show me the results in black and white. I think that would have shocked me into making a change so this episode is all about explaining water. Cdt test is and how he can get one. I started our conversation by asking. You shown to tell me. But about himself and how he discovered the cdt test. Indeed well hello everybody at all your your listeners. Well i'm saw. I've been living in the uk for the boss forty three years now. It is based in london. And originally i was born in On the island of mauritius which is not too far from south africa answer. I'm matt familiar with a tropical southern hemisphere more so and in fact overrule was assessing this today at thirty two years diagnostic laboratory experience as both a clinical scientist and abide medical scientists. The latter requires more if you like getting once hints deji on the bench and doing the. We're kind of jokes. So i do enjoy that fall. Mole two thousand and eight. Somebody said to me to the test at school cdt. And i had no idea what city was what did did stateful at to me. It's something new that's coming out and we're commercialising it. It's to people who are at risk of chronic alcohol consumption and yet curiously. Why not and what. I was working there would be. People would come into the emergency department at night in the hospital and would have taken but nobody they would be smelling about. Also you could literally spend the or and you would think they'd be venturing or whatever so automatically. The doctors would have to ask for a request for a alcohol to be done. And this is a single time. Point measurement us through Might be and i saw. I render buys those samples. So i had no idea who they were and read these same samples anonymously on that cd on the liza and to my surprise i found out those who were testing negative for having consume alcohol when they were being admitted had this elevated cdt. And i couldn't understand why. And most of those who were drinking. And in fact where i imagine bhai now would be closed as chronic drinkers had both elevated auto an elevated cdt. So it became very mantra curiosity and between two thousand eight twenty ten. I did a lot of Of the swear in that manner. They went many samples private referral laboratories full on behalf of airline. Where taking it interest into this mollica. Because we're just the basic tests at started getting work from these companies. Also and i was invited to present some of my work in the netherlands in amsterdam in twenty twelve december so that was just after the olympics and unbeknownst to me there were representatives of the international federation of clinical chemistry present and this is known as the ifc see. This is the body that if you like it. It's full of international orla clinicians scientists and so on that all the blood test we have done in a laboratory. They approve that so that any tests that you have done that they approved so these people were there as representatives. Ocd the ifc members suggested that i joined the group which at the time they were trying to if you like rationalized how cdt was being done and make it a more recognized test. It was like sort of research. Talk to the time. So i did Issue like express my interest and by twenty fifteen. I ended up becoming a member of this working group and nothing lead. Did i just become a member. But in twenty eight thousand nine. They found myself being the chair of the ifc cdt working group which is an enormous platform personally for me and since then the icco's taken on bullet that a Full front to promote the test.

Digital anthropology with Genevieve Bell
"I think i think many of us when when we actually think of technical systems we think of the modern digital technologies but technical systems. They've been around weavers an awful long time they have. And it's nice to get to talk to you. And per james and often when i start conversations not usually podcast but other conversations. I'd stop by actually acknowledging. I am and that's partly a story about an older technical system are today. I'm sitting on the lands of the wall and nambi people. I don't want to pay my respects to the eldest pasta present and to acknowledge that this compensation will be listened to on the lands of traditional owners and traditional elders all over the world. I wanna pay my respects to them to and from a pot of acknowledging the place where you're standing with the place where you're starting is whenever i want to think about technical systems or about build a future all telling stories about the future. I like to imagine that most of those stories didn't come out of nowhere right. They start somewhere with someone. And i'm lucky enough to live these days in a country where humans have been building technical systems. Well first closest forever as we can probably get so. There are technical systems in australia. That died back. Forty sixty thousand years. And i was thousand years. Yeah absolutely humans deliberately creating structures that changed the world in order to create different kinds of experiences. I was lucky enough. Two years ago to go visit one. I in a town called warrener was on the new south wales queensland border. So you're thinking of a map of australia. Go two thirds of the way up mostly to the right and the river system and there's a place where a large riba abandons basically and on that band there are a series of stone. Fish whiz archaeologists argue. About how old they are. But the running argument somewhere between four to forty thousand years old in either instance that makes them some of the oldest human built technical structures in the world and these are deliberate right. They extend columbia in distance. Downriver they are a series of stone u-shaped pens that were built to contain the fishes. The water moves up in flows down that river in the fish. Move up that are filters the fish. Basically in flow of their series of fish fish traps all they built like fishnets. That is the origin story of the one of the ancestors decided to build a stone. Fish nets they will lost photographed in use in the nineteen teens So a system that is thousands if not tens of thousands of years in the making it suggests incredibly on robust understanding of hydrology of fish behavior. These have been carefully tended and curated over seasons and he is in decades and they were not built for the sake of them are. They weren't because someone said got some startling lying around. We should do something with that comes from quite some distance. It's dry stone. If you know anything about that. Kind of technology said dry stone walls familiar. I suspect in your part of the world as mine and they were utilized with complicated social patents about who tended them who will job to the fish but ultimately what they was in the service of doing multiple nations to gather on the banks of that river and trade conduct rituals exchange information a human at scale and so he has this system that says the humans that lived in that place on the stood stone but amsterdam hydrology. They understood the behaviors of fish. And i thought about people and human society. And so whenever i think about technical systems in my now life twenty-first-century like to hold that idea in the back of my head that it is possible to build technical systems. That are not just technologies right. They are systems of knowledge. They are ways of understanding the environment ways of making sense all the end supporting human behavior and that those things don't have to be At all to each other they can actually exist as a system of systems. And so it's kind of this powerful image that sits in the back of my head most is not that system if it lasted that long forty thousand plus years then they have been managing it. I guess you mean they're they're also iterating it. Because the absolutely there's evidence of that system evolving and growing over time expanding and contracting in terms of where the storms will being moved. And of course it's also system that existed through a period of european colonization of australia so when europeans i turned up in that set of river valleys in the eighteen eighteen twenties. They sold the ways. They knew that average won't people had fish there by the time. The townships built there later in that century Europeans took some of the rocks out of the river because they were smooth and well shaped and use them to make the foundations of the towns nearby. Thus both changing the way that system work but also taking some of that knowledge and in some ways inserting it into a whole although structure and in the meantime new concrete ways will put on that river to redirect the water so that it could be used for shipping and that sort of changed those systems. but no. you're absolutely right. That's a period of time. So thirty ten thousand years forty thousand years multiple changes in global environment such that people would have had to have thought differently and continued to write and evolved that system and work out what worked and then they were willing to change and how to go about changing it and i think you know for me. I don't know about you to. I've spent a long time silicon valley and it's been a long time around engineers and the notion of site someone right. Here's the thing that system you'll building. I need to get at least ten thousand years out of it. Forty would be excellent but tanzi bottom is other than stewart brands long now foundation. I can't think of that. Many people who are thinking on a ten thousand horizon for a technical system given given that we've we've done those can achieve those kinds of technical systems of those kind of periods of time on scale given the frustrations with with how many the systems we're dealing with the developing six silicon valley valet or in the digital sphere. That feels frustration. Feels were not building stuff with that kind of sam. Not we're not just diligence but thoughtfulness and consideration for how. It's going to do what it wants to should be doing. In the beginning we do. Also i think we have not necessarily thought about technology inside those other relationships and responsibilities. Right when i sort of may one of the things about these fish traps in war and other systems like them is that they want just about starting right. This is not olympics oriented system. We have a phone system. It's not that right. It was designed with the intention of supporting human activity in known human activity and things that mattered and it was designed into the environment rather than pretending that it didn't exist with a blank slate right so there's a. I'm not sure that we miss the ball. I think it's that we allow ourselves to imagine different starting point and we haven't always thought about technologies that way you look back at multiple points in the history of the west in the history of technologies globally. We've often been willing to imagine. That would different starting points and didn't always start with. Oh have this technology. What will we do with it. It often started with this thing. We should look at how to do better. Or i think being trying to think about having a soul or or attention we need to resolve. And we're going to put technology in the middle to resolve it.
Flash of luck: Astronomers find cosmic radio burst source
"Something out there and it's a cosmic radio burst. Not the kind you're hearing on 10. 10 wins the kind that's coming from inside our own Milky Way galaxy that was picked up by telescopes. Scientists now think they know where the sounds come from. Magnet ours, which are dense neutron stars that crackle with energy. Dr. Jason Hessels, an astrophysicist at the University of Amsterdam, says the discovery could help answer some key questions. You're studying fast radio burst. I think we can really come to a deeper understanding of the formation of Galaxies. Both in cosmic past and also into the cosmic future, which is really quite important for us as human beings because that's really fundamental to understanding why we're here in the first place. The discovery of the radio bursts and their source was picked up by two very different telescopes. One was a $20 million eye in Canada. The other Handmade antenna involving cake pans put together by a doctoral student, the researchers reported in the journal Nature

Am I Radical Enough?
"I think the one thing we can all agree on is that no one is happy right now with the way things are. But there's this agreement over how much change we can ask for right now. Like can I start to advocate for free college legalized pot? When like gay marriage might be repealed? I just worry that this push pull leaves me somewhere in the middle and settling for less. Limiting own dreams, what the future can be because I'm afraid about the president. I, just feel like a not radical enough. A recent example. So right now, people are rising up to protest against police violence and the phrase abolish the police or defunding police is really becoming an idea that is is much more mainstream sophia. No is an author and cartoonist who's been involved in a lot of radical activists, organizers circles. And so she posted something on instagram about defunding the police, and then I saw somebody else post something on instagram. That was like you have to say abolish the police. You can't say defined the police because if you say defunding police people don't know that what you mean is that it's a step towards abolition sophie. was what I posted not enough should I have said abolish instead then a friend of mine who's an older activists was like actually I think the word de fund is really important because it's it does represent a step and it represents an an action that people can understand as a step towards abolition, and so there's this back and forth about what is the right wording to use? It was kind of interesting for Sophie, that she was dealing with this dilemma because she just wrote a whole graphic novel about this. About how to try to be a good person in a bad world? The book is called the contradictions. One of the reasons I ended up deciding to like do the book is because I was sort of talking to friends of mine in the like anarchist scene we were talking about like when we first got introduced to like lefty ideas and. How those ideas came through people and how those people. Had An influence on how we thought about the ideas and like ideas can be perfect. But humans are fallible right? The comic is auto fiction. So the main characters named Sophie and it's based on Sophie's life, but it's not actually sophie. The book starts in Paris with Sophie having just arrived to study abroad. Here. I was age twenty. Character feels out of place and pretty quickly meets somebody who maybe alliance more with her background. So she's getting Abban. Sees. Somebody riding by on a fixed gear bike Fix Gear and makes the association that okay. After writing affixed here. Then maybe they're punk and if the navy there punk and maybe they're queer in like Ben. Maybe. I have a friend here. Fake. I saw you orientation. This person on the bike turns out to be another American in Sophie Study Abroad Program and they strike up a friendship. This person Zeena does not as clear as Sophie Hope, but she is opponent. Zina's Vegan. She is very active in like animal rights stuff and very vocal about it guy just broke up with worked at the COP with man we to sit outside and yell things like milk. It's full of US I used to be vegetarian but I'm Nima so I stopped. You could take iron pills or eat spinach character. Sophie explains that she's Tangentially associated with some anarchist or lefty friends back home and you know she's dipping her toes in into that world but hasn't really participated much and then Zena. You know she talks about having a planner full of activists activities and then she also gives Soviet. About these two anarchists hitchhiking around Western Europe. Everyone's making plans for spring break. What if we went hitchhiking? Taking a plane, the gas emissions are out of control and also going hitchhiking is more. Living the ideals I think I'll go vegan for the trip like in solidarity you don't have to do that. But I want to. XENA and Sophie hit the road trying to thumb their way from Paris to Amsterdam.

Funny after her death, her body was brought back to New York City where she was buried in her spirit might have come along with it, but we'll get more into that later. Now, switching gears back to the new Amsterdam once the Great Depression hit in nineteen, twenty nine, the theater started to decline and really failed to gain any traction it ended up sitting empty and deteriorating for sixty years. Oh Dang. Like just completely empty falling to ruin like it's wild. Looks see here's no one. Bought it the whole time? No. Even after the depression day I know it's it's surprising to say the least in nineteen ninety-three though Disney theatrical group signed a ninety nine year lease on the theatre and refurbish it over two years ninety nine year lease. And first of all, what first of all, I have to acknowledge that I can't I'm sorry I'm sorry it's so annoying. How can we stop I'm sure I have to acknowledge that it's an ninety nine year lease. Yeah. That's wild that is I mean I make sense I thought honestly before my research I thought that Disney. Oh, I prepped today's script by the way. Clear Anyway. So I thought does he actually owned the new Amsterdam, but it turns out it's a ninety nine year lease. anyways Oh, I was GONNA. Say if you look at pictures of the new Amsterdam before the renovation, it is rough like it looks like the quintessential haunted leader. Yeah. Well, sitting there for sixty years. No literally it. Yeah, and on the new ems website, they will report a quote about like the history and they say to describe the disarray that it was left in over over six years they write. This is their website. They say quote the boxes on either side of her procedure had been torn out the ceiling had collapsed and years of rain and snow had. Deposited over two feet of standing water in the basement mushrooms. The size of dinner plates were growing throughout the house and once spectacular murals and sculptures were marred beyond recognition. It took a team of over four hundred expert engineers, plasterers, painters, and technicians to restore the theatre back to her original glory and quote. Wow mushrooms the size of dinner plates that's crazy. Can you imagine how he was water smoke Nineteen ninety-three. Okay. Well how yeah. That's wild I'm just like shocked that it it was such. An iconic theater was just sitting there for so long literally the House of like the Ziegfeld follies. Yeah. How does that like how is that not? Why as to say, how is that not like preserved by the government but then I remembered that the government. Darts. anyways. So the theater finally reopened in Nineteen ninety-seven and after the premiere of the Disney animated film Hercules which I thought was kind of fun. The Disney people out there at a concert version of King David Disney opened the stage version version of the king that November, and then it ran all the way up until I am pretty sure. Okay. Yeah. So that's the VIBE. That's the history of. Pretty cool history..

"Depart Seth cuco website. Is Seth Google Dot Com. That's spelled K. G. L. UP NEXT WE LOOK at how Amsterdam copes with its popularity among tourists and will help with family travel plans for year. Where at eight seven seven three three or by email? It's radio at Rick Steves DOT com. It's travel with Rick Steves. While the city's population is less than a million twenty million more are coming to visit and they put a visible strain on Amsterdam's every year they range from family groups to budget backpackers backpacker's Test Dag party robbers Amsterdam has been a magnet for world end. The world has ever since Seventeenth Century Golden Age Local Tour Guide Ellen. Young joins us now to examine the impact. The crowds are having on Amsterdam. Thanks for being here having meet great. What's it like in Amsterdam right now? Oh It's a brilliant city it's vibrant city. It's a very popular city. It's A tolerance city and this is attracting very many. Any people am very many tourists. It's not the development that's on its own because you see it all over Europe. There are many places struggling with the burden of mass tourism like offended like Dubrovnik like Barcelona And I'm Saddam to but I'm Saddam is different in that it's one of the small capitals of Europe. Yeah it's it's like compatible to Copenhagen and Dublin Amsterdam they're the smallest capitals in Europe so eight hundred thousand inhabitants but the burden of tourism has increased exponentially exponentially the past decade. When you see twenty ten there were five million tourists and last year twenty eighteen so eight years later eighteen eighteen million? EMT him now you walk down the main street damn wreck. It's a stately street but now the businesses are there really decatur not to the locals but to the tourists. You see hooters. You see hard rock cafe you see a sex. She's young and you see cheese shops right. Yeah the local people. I just say well. That's for the tourist. I'll go to another street. Well that's the problem. Local shops have to go away so the locals cannot buy the groceries that they need. They can't survive on cheese and chocolate. Oakland they have need of a cucumber every now and then. So that's a problem and the city council trying to influence that lie the licenses that they're giving giving to shape the what's being sold. The Mona Culture. They can change the monoculture around. They do no longer license. Those monoculture shops a little knickknacks for tourists. They're trying to problem though. Matic areas water some other examples of what the the city council might be doing. I understand there's some some concern about The vehicles on the canals the boats. Yes they are influencing Trying to curb a recreational traffic on the canal because you can rent a little paddle. Oh boat and that's just a big party there and go drunk and just shouts and be noisy and misbehave and whatever so they're trying to curb that what the trying to curb the pressure of crowds that the trying crowd management really in the Red Light District for instance which is a concentration area to very small all this. He got like four or five lanes on the canals. That are quote Red Light District where you've got all the red lights of the prostitutes and A generation ago. This was kind of a no go zone. It was the sailor's cord hard yet problems. And a Lotta prostitution now. It's sort of Cutesy it's gentrified and all the trigger. Yeah yeah it's almost like a theme park which is horrible to say but you know in. In the olden days you had the sailors coming into the port and just a heading into the city. And you know that was back and of course you had the prostitutes and now you have the cruise liners yes In the port and all those tourists from the cruise liners everybody's making you line for the R. L. D. Red Lasers. Yes yes and it's a very a small area what which is very confined. So let's the Americans are kind of going. What Are Red Light district? We can't but in in in Europe there's a pragmatic a harm reduction approach to some of these challenges that a society has there's going to be prostitution and in the Netherlands. You WanNa take the crime out of the equation try to let Sex workers run little businesses. Yeah exactly what is the pragmatic approach to prostitution in the Netherlands. Well it was legalize in two thousand dollars officially was brothels that would legalize prostitution already was a sort of legal individually but brothels were legalized in two thousand. Just to try and get a grip on the industry as you don't want streetwalkers. We want people. Running businesses aimed places of business. You want to cut out the crime and the Middle Man. The criminals is if a if a prostitute has a dangerous client and she pushes her emergency button. She's rescued by police rather than pimp. Yep does it really work that way the agencies that let out the windows have have an obligation to be at the window within five minutes or so you rent a little window with the red lights and everything and they've there's a little a a bedroom in the back and so on if they've got a problem. The landlord has an obligation to either. Yes they've got all these people patrolling the area so actually could say that the red light district area in the city you know the the Netherlands has this idea of everybody. Watches everybody else. So you've got social control you. I don't know things in the dark. Nothing's hiding it's all right there in your face civil right there in the open and the sex workers are unionized. Yeah it's all regulated. So they have. There's an obligation to use condoms. And you're you checked so you're not spreading diseases where you get your license or whatever yeah okay. And then they're trying to run a business but what they have is thousands thousands of cruise travelers coming in and just gawking so this must be a frustration the frustration because like I said is tolerant city. Not You have this pragmatic approach but this tolerance is under threat because of the mass tourism. We have a very Non Restrictive non assertive assertive manner of policing but when all these people come in you need more restrictions and you need more controls so this is a challenge so this this is really a challenge. How can they preserve the tolerant attitude while keeping an excess is under control? And there's a pragmatism. A lot of Americans are into WHO Just moralizing and legislating morality and they would just say no. There's no prostitution whether it's GonNa be prostitution whether you like it or not. And in the Netherlands the idea is let's take the disease Aziz out of it let's take the crime out of it. Let's regulated and that the different way but it's still complicated. Let's take human trafficking out of it but it's very it's still very very complicated to get a grip on it. This is travel with Rick Steves. We're talking with Ellen saying she's a Dutch tour guide and she's giving us an insight into some of the challenges we have today in the tourism industry which is thriving in Amsterdam so ellen if somebody is thinking of visiting the Red Light district you have to decide when you want to go. Yeah Ah what would your decision depends what you want to see. What are you option? You are you up if you want to get an idea of this neighborhood. Abbott where everything comes together. People are living what people do the shopping where people take their children to daycare. And where you have a sex workers behind the windows Your best that would be to go on a morning right in the morning because in the mornings daycare center right there next to the church does the windows with the prostitutes. Es this the the the MOMS are taking their little kids to the daycare center and the girls are setting up shop and the liens walking down the street and the church bells are ringing. toge- got a guy that this this you can get when you go on morning but say from lunchtime. It gets busier and busier. And if you WANNA get all the sleaze please and you want to get all the rowdy people and all the people that are off their face with whatever they abused and you go on a Friday or Saturday night. So Friday Saturday. Sorry it's going to be thriving what you'd expect. Maybe this is travel with Rick Steves.

And you've got These coffee shops right now in the Netherlands marijuana's not legal. And you haven't figured out the back side what you call the grey areas where it's wholesaled and where it's produced. That's kind of just. Don't tell.

We hear how Amsterdam is coping with its tourist boom and share ideas and how you can be a respectful tourist even at some of it's less Justin family friendly attractions. We'll also check in with listeners. Planning family travels to Europe to ensure everybody enjoys a memorable vacation. Let's start the hour with tips tips on the best ways to be a globally curious traveler with frequent traveler. Seth Cooper Technology travel is undeniably helpful but overreliance on technology and the Internet can also be a hurdle between you and a rich travel experience. Seth goes written about this topic in his new book. Rediscovering travel travel guide for the globally curious and he joins us now for some advice on how we can switch it over to what he calls traveled when necessary seth. Of course there's great uses for technology in our travels. Nobody would deny that but technology can get in the way and I think that's what you addressed in your notion of the travel mode. What is the travel mode? Well think of airplane mode on your smartphone when you get on a plane you put on airplane mode is a bunch of stuff. It just doesn't work and basically Iowa's fantasizing about what because I'm on a trip and I have my smartphone and now my smartphone works in every country in the world. It used to be great. Used to not be able to use your your smartphone in some countries but now works everywhere so it always be like no. I can't use it. I'm not gonNA open tripadvisor knocking to open Google maps. I'm going to get through this day without without it. I'm not going to post to facebook when you know at the Pyramids at Giza or anything like that. So I had this sort of this fantasy that my phone would tell me what they could do and what I couldn't do so I invented this sort of fantasy app called travel mode you flip it on and the main sort of idea of it. Is it restricts how often often use certain elements of your phone but allows you to use the other ones that really help travel okay. So let's go through these just because we're all going to construct this APP APP in our minds. Thanks to Seth Koogle. What about texting and messaging APPs right? Well I think that people love to be connected with their family in case emergency he happens and I'm not against that so what I've done here is I've said you can choose a few people and allow their messages to come through. But the rest of the folks. You're dependent on that one hour a day. I would. I call connection time where you know. You're in your hotel turnoff. Travel Mode and there you get to answer all Texaco's encased cold Turkey here we're going to give ourselves one hour a night to be wrapped up in Oliver social stuff in my fantasy I actually would have it be a A. GPS based thing and you can only use these things when you're inside your hotel room you're not allowed to use them outside so that's a bit of A. It's even more of a fan I like but it's fantasy fantasy so that's okay. Now you mentioned when it comes to email limit your email responses to about the amount of time it would take to right. The weather's here was you. Were beautiful message on a postcard in the old days. Two minutes Max composing each message. Well email is really these days kind of a work up in a way so you know if you have to answer so the question you get two minutes to answer it. That's it and of course it has to be during that one hour of during that one hour in the evening when you're not in overseas when you're really beck at home in your normal. There's just no such thing these days as an emergency email if someone needs to get in touch with you during the day they can text you or call. Yeah now social. Media's the big deal it just we they seem to have a deeply ingrained need this show off on social media when we're traveling but how does this impact the experience. And what should we do about it. Well there's a huge debate in travel travel. But I I can't help but think that if you're posting to Any of the social media apps while you are somewhere. Then you're taking yourself out of the moment now. I do understand the need. They sort of human desire to show up where you are or at least inform your friends of what you're doing or to be clever. So what travel mode does it still allows you to take the pictures to take the videos and it just can't post them until you get back. You're certainly not allowed to see how many people liked it and who commented on. Oh Yeah just doesn't make any sense to do that when you're on vacation and and these software companies are so good at stroking yours. Serotonin needs by headstrong you. The little hearts in the little sparkles as people love would do. It seems very unnatural to take a picture that would be great on instagram. And then wait until nighttime to to post it but in reality you might even be in a time zone where everyone knows asleep anyway right so it's clearly to me. It would make my trips so much better if I were forbidden from posting on social media until nighttime okay so we got permission not to be reporting live but why do you need to interrupt being in the moment. Get the luxury of reporting later and and working within seth's Travel mode our when you can be connected. What about relationship APPS? This is a very interesting point that you brought up. I never even I thought about it. But there's a lot of relationship APPs that can actually be a plus in your travels but under certain constraints. Well I've been amazed in speaking to people a bit younger than me and a bit singler than me who used stuff like tinder on vacation as a way of meeting people usually romantically? But but not always and and I just think it's a great way to meet people in the place you are. I completely forbid you from swiping people in your hometown while you're on vacation vacation. That is completely unnecessary at does not make any sense at all. Now it's funny. You say that because I was just having a barbecue dinner with a vagabond friend of mine. He's a free spirited bearded guy that basically is on the road almost all the time and he's alone and I was marveling at how he enjoys himself so much alone and he just constantly a uses these relationship as he travels and not necessarily for Romantic hookups purchased. Hey I'm coming into town and wants to get together. And it's a huge bonus for his his Solo globe-trotting to use the relationship APPS. especially if you're the kind of person that has a lot of trouble SM- smiling and ask a question of a stranger. It's a way it's an easy way to meet eight people in. It's become a very normal way to do it seth. Google has been specializing and how to see the world on a budget. Ever since his days as frugal traveler at the New York Times his book is rediscovering travel a guide for the globally curious and he hosts youtube videos on globally curious channel. You know in your book set you talk about how travel is much about your ears as it is about. Your is new taste. Buds music can be a part of our travels if our APPS smartly and it doesn't need to get between us and the local culture right in fact I think One of the things travel mode allegedly does is it. Stops you from listening at least too much to the music. You always listen to and it senses whether you're listening to music from the place where you are and it also has completely unlimited listening to local little radio Local radio is something. We'd never even think about anymore with great podcast like like yours. But when you're in a place I remember driving through South South Dakota and turning on and hearing sort of a native American station talking about political issues on the reservation and I was like well if I turn. This is amazing and I would never have even heard this if I were just listening to my normal podcasts. You know that's a beautiful idea and I've of course when we're in an English speaking country like the British isles. It's obvious it's an and you get that local personality that character even listen to local advertisements and it's all entertaining and adds to your understanding of that culture when you're traveling across southern Spain suncoast suncoast radio. It's for the experts.
