They went three to two advanced. Four three on aggregate a bombing with a couple of goals. Kieran tierney As well jill's. I'll start with you. Just how big was this for arson to advance the round of sixteen in europa league the result of course and qualifying but also the fact that they came from behind. He's he's been very very rare season. I think he was only the second time where they went behind and then ended up winning again we against southampton in the league. The game saint. Mary's but apart from that every time they were behind every time they considered. I couldn't come back and win it so to do that logically would be huge tonight.

Pulitzer Prize-Winning Author, Scientist, and Renowned Polymath Jared Diamond Discusses the Derisive Term 'Finlandization'
"Is the first country that you discuss in the book. Outsiders uses derisive term called finlandisation to describe the nation's relationship with the soviet union. Now russia you confess to being a little bit guilty of this yourself during. I think it was one of your earlier first visits to that country. Why defense take offense at the term finlandisation. And what is it. That non-finn seem to misunderstand. Sure finlandisation is a a nasty word. It's a blaming word that non-finns particularly germans and other europeans and americans applied to finland after world war tooth in world war. Two finland got attacked by the soviet union whose population is about forty times that of finland. The finns fought fiercely. Lots of them got killed. But finland managed to retain its independence but finns learned a lesson from the war against russia. Which is. let's make sure we're not going to get into that mess again. And what we'll do is. We'll talk constantly with the russians at every level from the president downwards so that the russians are not suspicious of us. will they'll know what we're thinking The russians will know that the anoc can be surprised by making an alliance with some other country attacking finland by the back door. Finland's learned learned and they were very careful not to offend the soviet union when the soviet union vade hungry. The finns kept their mouth shot. Okay germans and american set that is that's a lack of courage should speak out against the soviet invasion of hungary and finish. His response was if we speak out. That's gonna have no effect on the soviet union but we learned that we cannot offend the soviet union. Because hundred thousand dollars got killed from making that mistake. That's finlandisation namely a small country being very careful about large country when i first went to finland. I'm embarrassed to say that that one my my best friend in finland who was a veteran of the winter war. I told him so. Why being so careful about russia because if you get into trouble the united states and britain france will protect you. Oh god there's nothing worse i could say. Because the finns had been deserted by all their allies and the finns learned that awesome viable is going to depend upon ourselves. That's finlandisation it worked finland. It's not gonna work for the united states and so there was a sense that they couldn't afford to be brave and speak out against the soviet union as much as others would have liked because they were realistic and they knew that no one else may come to our aid. If we do. Why do we want to get one. Hundred thousand people killed again. Eighty thousand about children driven into exile. No big and be. We're not gonna be stupid again. We can be careful. We will talk constantly with the russians will remain a liberal. Democracy will remain a rich country investing heavily in education. All the we're going to do differently is we're going to talk constantly with the russians. So that they will trust arson and interestingly the united states after the fall of the soviet union sadly in the nineteen nineties while the soviet union was there in a big threat. The united states was talking constantly with the soviet union but with the fall of the soviet union we began to take russia less

"arson" Discussed on Wrongful Conviction Podcasts
"But. It happens and it's very hard to admit to it are to what do you think it is that you know generations of experts have all been proven to be wrong on the assumptions they rely on turn out to be incorrect, but there's this unwillingness to change. Once you have invested yourself in this belief and all these very weighty consequences follow it's very hard to admit. That you wrong. Even when there's scientific proof that you're wrong John, Lentini and John. Geoghan and all these various experts you know they started off as regular arson investigators That we're taught to believe these things but engaging in real science and doing these experiments, they realized it was all wrong and they had an enormous amount of trouble persuading the forensic science community to stop and they're still fighting about it even to this day. I. Mean I think that the Willingham case, all these other exonerations have exposed the community to it and you literally can see fewer arson convictions since that happened. But Josh you're you're you're absolutely right it's it's mystifying. It's so upsetting that it is taking so long to change it, and meanwhile these convictions based on this false arson science or this this fire evidence just keep on coming Hud Tok, Lee whose daughter who suffered from mental illness was found literally burnt to death incinerated in a small community in Pennsylvania. He gets convicted of. Killing his daughter intentionally in a fire which did not happen. Right the case of Hong Talk Lee is just It's really really troubling. I mean, here's a guy that spent fifteen years in prison for murder. He did not commit and there's a quote that always stuck with me from an opinion written by judge during haunt talk lease appeal and it was this quote much of what was presented to lease jury as science is now conceded to be little more than superstition and quote I mean that's so remarkable is an you know again, the fact that this is still used in the face of quotes like that. It's just it's hard to understand. You know he was granted a new trial and finally exonerated thankfully in two thousand, fifteen, another was. A Sonia Casey who was convicted of burning down a house and killing I guess said was her uncle Bill Richardson and it of course it turned out that Bill Richardson was actually a heavy smoker and probably fallen asleep with a burning cigarette. But plainly, she did not start this fire all the same kind of junk science was used in that case, and that's the great tragedy when you look at the arson cases so many people like Ernest, Willa Sir Cameron, Todd Willing, Hammer, Hanta cle- you know they're all convicted of killing with intentionally set fires. Their loved ones that to me is you know the horrible horrible irony of these junk science cases. Now for our listeners I know Barry. Twenty years and. I've seen you get emotional before and passionate about a lot of cases. But I want to go back to the Cameron Todd Willingham case for a moment because it seems to me that this is one that really stuck with you and it seems to me like one of the two or three cases that has really haunted you in all your innocence warp. How can it not haunt you? It should haunt everyone in this country. I mean, this is a case or to. Change the way the people look at capital punishment and forensic science. I think. We've made a lot of progress, but we still haven't corrected the biggest injustice of all and that is the wrongful execution of Cameron Todd Willingham is see the suffering up to the very very end and the execution of innocent man. How could not haunt you? There's so much importance attached with the state finally admitting. That it was wrong. And that an innocent person is executed and that will happen in Texas. It will..

"An honest person can be just as anxious as a deceptive one as he conducted the test with Christine, the operator changed the tone of his voice at each question. He asked her why she didn't grab Tony wall. She was in the bedroom. Christine claimed that her nightgown had caught fire, but the police knew that wasn't true. Even without the polygraph, the nightgown they had collected from the hospital was full of soot, but not burned next. The operator showed Christina diagram of the fire scene indicating where the reclining chair had been placed in the bedroom. Doorway Christine denied any knowledge of the chair moving claiming that the chair should. Not have been near the doorway at all the operator continued, as the polygraph word away, slipping in perhaps the most critical question of the case, he asked, why did you start the fire Christine allegedly responded? I don't know with that indirect admission of guilt. The operator ended the questioning. He turned Christine around to face him and informed her that she had failed the polygraph test, then he paused looking at her closely he told Christine, that he knew that she had killed her son, Christine looked right back at him. She was beaten down and exhausted. And the last scrap of hope she had been clutching to was being rustled from her grasp, but she tightened her grip. And she told him, she wanted a lawyer. After the polygraph test Christine was immediately arrested by this time a probable cause affadavit had been formally issued by Indiana state fire.

Steen, not to speak to anyone regarding the case, especially the media, and she didn't for more than two months, while she was in jail in Decatur county Christine spoke to no one except her immediate family. But while Kristine anxiously awaited, her trial date, she was already being tried in the court of public opinion, local media quickly learned of the scandalous, accusations, and the news spread across Indiana faster than the fire that consumed her trailer home for months while she languished, in jail articles speculated as to why Christine would have killed her three year old son, and what kind of mother would remain silent in the wake of her child's death..
