Beetles eaten alive observed escaping from frog's other end
"Biologists studying the water Beetle finally discovered why it can survive, even though it's constantly being eaten by its primary predator, the dark spotted frog. It turns out these little guys it once they're swallowed by the frog. Just crawl right down and out the frogs, Anis. That's right, Dennis. It's a science word. So apparently 90% of the water beetles who get eaten by these frog survive by doing that, which is again just crawling right out that frogs Croker Come on Dark spotted frog to your food. Here's the amazing thing. And I love this. So the scientists were like, Okay, this is what happens. The Beatles come out alive, the other end. But is that just a natural accident of the Frogs digestive system or the Beatles actively doing it? So they actually and I hate to think of these poor beetles. Paralyzed, some with like wax so that they couldn't move and they fed them alive to the frog. Those Beatles didn't come out,

People come and ask you Hey, What do you think, if the Beatles if if let's say if John and George would have would be with us today, like if they would be making music or touring, if they would have got together. Do people ask you those questions? They asked me those questions I contact with them. You know, I don't know. You know, I can just assume things but, uh, I only in my own opinion, and I always give my own opinion and it's just my opinion of people's opinions. Am I never thought that it would ever get back together again as a group just once they got they broke up. Not with maybe too involved with their own things, then anyway, and successful now that I think the chemistry that it's necessary to make a band. Is is something sort of magical, right? But if you look at it, each one of them was so very talented in their own right. I mean, they were all successful solo as well. MIA. Um, but also you know what I liked about that, but I'm not.

"I don't have the favors. I just like it all when, when, like. Say asked me why I first came out Well before it came out. Happy had naturally the demo this gunny played it on DH. I thought, Hmm. Sounds terrible. Doesn't so that that actually grow on, Make me understand what I'm saying. You know, after here is about three times before, I thought, Yeah, on their naturally on, I think things that grow on you. Linger. Don't take this day. It's It is strange to think about this as musical styles change, and there are certainly some acts that have iconic hits or songs or or careers that have stayed with us and remained in the mainstream. But one of the things about the Beatles, that is so I think so Very unique is that music is is just a day. No, it's is relevant as and as important as oppressive. You could play it for kids. Nowadays, and they will love it just as much as kids did back in the 60. That's very ank. Here. I think it's great, you know, like, Ah, naturally. You know, I didn't do anything for a long, long time. And I was quite never first started. You know, I started with Mark repeated in New Jersey. That was my first festival. And actually, you know, people didn't know, man. I didn't know them so I could like, wander around on. It was just lovely to see the different age group. Anyone at all the young people is well. Also it was It was nice. You know, I I thought I wouldn't enjoy it because I was quite a bit But you know what? Once you start talking to people comes on, which is so nice, and I've made a lot of friends now and capped a lot of friends too. You know my doing the festival, you know, I mean, you know really good friends in Chicago. You know, they came to my birthday party. Um, so I had to, You know, I invited a few people from all around America. And you know what the devil came? Yeah, well, they have something good in common with you. Just as you did. I think that's one of the things that made you that perfect. Fit for the fan club in the beginning and toe. Let the listeners know what was like as someone who was a fan and knowing what it is they might want. But what was the process for getting in the tank up? And what do people get? Did they get any kind of either trinkets or promotional items? Did that stuff even exist? Like how did the fan club working and what did you know they would appreciate. No, they didn't. They joined. You know it was only I don't even know what it would be a in dollars or anything when they first joined because of its old English money. Then it was five shillings on They got a membership card, and they got what was called. You know newsletters on DH then, but they also got a Christmas present, and they got the Frankel Breckel. On DH. Then when Fan club ended They take off what was called an Annapolis caving. And on top of that, Because all the Christmas records they put him on a and I'll pay you an album. That was the final president. Truth. Um, I don't know any of the Franklin had done anything like that. I mean to run a fan club. It's very expensive. You know the postage bill and everything, but the Beatles wanted a fan club on DH. They're very good in with the fan club, so I'm the funk of well it the the official thank lip that came on to the bistro Swing was from 1961 2 1972 Andi. I say, you know, I don't officially for 1962 right through to 1972. When it comes to the fan club, Wendell Wendell was new for want of a better word. Big group. What you went through the entire actual active period of the band and even and even past that, of course, the fans and interest in the band you know it never stopped. You know what was what was one of those things did the did the band feel? And how did you guys feel as part of it certainly happy for all the excess. But when that hysteria happened, and when things came And became, I don't almost uncontrollably popular right where they were in the news in the headlines and all that kind of stuff in a way that you sort of had to just fly by the seat of your pants. Like we've said before, there wasn't a road map for this was the hysteria. It was obviously great for the career and very lucrative. It was a great business. But was there some downsides to whether some negatives where maybe is a you know more stress on the band? The people you everybody, you nearly in it when you're famous. You know, like the pop star now and and movie stars and everything. You know if you're out in public, you know you're not left alone. I, um you know that it's times under his places that you, Khun, go and And some some of your funds are quite good. They don't pounce on me. And everything went through a lot, You know, but you still have the life. Actually, they had a private life as well. But I wouldn't discuss their private life, You know, I mean, I don't know if you know I can be. I can be quite broke The times and I was getting fed up with, you Know, fans, I name it personal questions. Andi. In the end, I put in one of the new glasses I would number with. Um, um So you know, I didn't know some of the answers. You know, I was down in the big fun code for Like the fun side and the music side not to tell everybody about their private life. And you know what they are. They were pushing the news that they were entitled to a private life. And please don't ask me about it. You don't. I got out of it that way, you know, But don't you think that's one of the other aspects and intangible? Maybe an unexpected that made you also perfect for that role is that in and you couldn't have seen it? No one could have predicted it. But the fact that you were so at least understanding of them and just so protective right of that you wanted to be able to share because you're a fan of the music side of it, but understanding that they need that because I'm sure Over the time for for sure. But also over the years leading up. You know, people would have loved there would have been it would've been lucrative. It would have been. There would have been opportunities for you to do sort of a tell all book, but you never did. No, you got you got to appreciate that people do need private life. Everybody need supplies for life. Didn't want the world and his wife knowing all about you who or what? I should imagine the majority of people are like that. They don't you know, and I do want to know by each job. On. You know you're in that job to talk about it. Um, you know they they spoke about the music. They spoke about other things, but they didn't really like enough. Personal questions, and neither did I, but that that's just that's his people's character. They've been just a ruler or anything, because when I first started With Brian Epstein. There was no employment law. Um, he didn't sign contracts. And anyway, you know what? Your odds of work where most days you worked, and it was none of us. It is just Your word was your word. You know, it's it's the kind of thing that's that is absolutely amazing. Wanna talk a little bit more about the event coming up the fest for Beatles fans August 7 to ninth. You're going to be a part of it and will cause of course, highlights some of that stuff and we come back..
A Native Bee-nanza!
"I, think of myself as the the bridge between the plants in the pollinating insects sign trying to. Really Delve into the habitat and plants that are supporting our native bees in particular but also some of the other secondary insects that are doing some colonization as well. And where did this come from I? Mean were you always a nature? Person were always a plant person or was it like more interested in insects than than it? All kind of came together later on. bengals certainly focused more on the plant world in on the last fifteen years working restored clam communities, and even just in gardens that had been converted to mostly native plants. I really started to see a lot of patterns and just the difference in insect diversity so that really kick starting my interest in insects again, and basically I went down a rabbit hole after that never came out. have been trying to learn more about our pollinating insects in their specific interactions and it's that you know I'm pretty observant person. So just seeing you know year after year the same sort of visitation patterns between particular inspecting eight of plant that. That's sort of what stimulated me to write my first book. You know just start documenting some of these interactions in an interesting pollination ecology bits two about plants and how they may be tricking or. On eating. Insects. To. To their flowers. I love that the power of observation in it's something I see everywhere I've moved if I set up a garden or helped friend set of gardens, it's palpable. You really do notice a difference year after year especially, if you start using more native plants in a variety of native plants at that, you start to release pick out like you said these associations and I know anecdotes don't data, but it is very powerful to see the difference between what a lawn was like versus even the smallest Garden Patch can make in terms of insect diversity. Yes exactly. I. Mean I look at my neighbor, for example, who has over a half Acre of lawn and I. You know you can't still anecdotal of course but. As you just said the obviously I have a lot more going on in my garden that's just chock full of native plants versus his half Acre of one. So and I think that's what's the most encouraging inspiring thing about it is yes are small native gardens in urban or suburban areas. A may be attracting sort of generalists or you know a general amount of on eating insects, but it's still quite diverse and in pretty fascinating and and you can find some some rare species in gardens is just a case again of of looking hard for them in and documenting them. For. Sure. Yeah. It's again. It's one of those things like I'm a plant person I like bees, I like insects. I know almost nothing about them. So I often go outside in have no idea what I'm looking at and unless it becomes like super prevalent or if it's the case of lake, are milkweed stem Beatles right now and they're destroying all of our queens that I don't you know it takes me time to learn this stuff but you shouldn't be going out just aim at collecting the rarest of the rare to your landscape. Even just like you said, having a generalist suite of pollinators is an incredible step up from that half Acre of law next door. Right, right it's your garden is is functioning in providing good service. and. Then of course, the other important piece in many people don't realize just we had this huge diversity of be the loan in North America and and they all have different needs. They all have different seasonal phonology. So understanding how we are stewards of the land in how may be impacting our garden maintenance practices for example, all those things come into play when people start to realize they are attracting different. Sour. Visiting insects in you know they may all be nesting in different situations even in a garden

W GM to her cousin's here in the Chicago Land area are excited to hear ah, her on the line with us for Frieda. Welcome back, and I wanted to ask you as a person who was there in the beginning and there after the end of the actual kind of activity of the band. Were there times when you could see that things were either whether whether it was either the band members I don't want to say growing apart. I know that they remained close, but but where they maybe had other interests or solo projects or things like that? When when? When they kind of called it. Quit. Was it something that you saw coming before? It happened before everyone else did.

So you could see you know everything with change and even things in London. I don't mean just an apple. I mean, you know the world itself was changing. So to answer your question, Truthfully. Yeah, I could see things changing drastically. Did you? Did you see that? Or did you have Obviously it is a longtime confidante and fan of the things that they don't know what kind of potential they had to create even more music when they got a little bit of distance and perspective, and maybe to come back together again. Obviously, that's just what you do, and not even when before they split. They were doing their own thing in one way. You know on DH? So, but you have to remember Well, I was really heavily seen a lot of them because I stayed in Liverpool so I would only go to London.

Authorship Attribution of Lennon McCartney Songs
"Mark Glickman and I'm at Harvard University as a senior lecturer in statistics, statistics is a topic that the audience really loves hearing about before we get into the main topic. Can you give us a little bit of background on the areas of stats that you studied or maybe those that interest you the most? Yeah, well. What got me into statistics in the first place? Actually was my interest in the Game Chess I've always been interested in how chess players get rated when they play in tournaments in other. Other words when you go to a tournament, you get a numerical rating. Where if you have two players have ratings, you could actually determine the profitability that player defeats at other, and that was something that I was always interested in these chess rating systems, and I ended up getting really into statistics and the mathematical aspects of these kinds of systems and I developed a couple systems that are in use these days, especially in online gaming called the Licko system. So that's really got me into statistics in. In, the first place and I really have a passion for teaching, so that's a big part of my statistics life, and then much more recently got into the intersection between statistics and music, and this Beatles authorship attribution project is one of the bits of work also got involved with a student who is really the primary driver of this work on basically how to use statistically generates music that sounds like Corrales, and so we have a paper. That's GonNa, be coming very shortly in that area so. So, yes, a music's become a much bigger focus in my statistics like these days. Is there anything obviously interest could drive it but I'm curious if there's any computational component to it may be the availability of computers to run big simulations, and that sort of thing has that influenced the ability to ask interesting questions along these lines? Yeah, generally it helps I. mean I tend not to gravitate to problems which can only be solved by having the appropriate hardware to be able to crank through the data? Having access to good computing definitely makes a big difference I think we can take for granted that any listener must be aware of the Beatles and their influence on music. Regardless of what they like should they could a few, but tell us a little bit more background for those that don't know the discography. What were the types of problems you were looking to? To approach this whole project essentially started when I met my main collaborator for this project Jason Brown. When the two of US happened to be at this conference in Prince, Edward Island! We just happened to be talking. After I gave a talk some material. Actually that's related to rating systems for chess players, and we just happened to stumble on our mutual interest. Interest in music, and in the Beatles, and he was telling me that he had gained a little bit of infamy about fifteen years ago, where he used essentially a forty-eight analysis, decomposing the sounds from the starting court of a hard day's night to figure out the actual instrumentation of the cord, because that really been something that was in pretty serious dispute so. So he published a little article audit and got him some attention, and he was telling me since then one of the things that he was particularly interested in was being able to represent Sohn's particularly Beatles songs in particular format in his area of math, which is graph theories, essentially representing music in the form of essentially graphs or networks and he wanted to. Be Able to use it to be able to distinguish authorship of different Beatles songs like maybe there'd be stylistic differences that would be evident in these representations, anyone really making a lot of headway and whole problem of being able to sing wish authorship is something that's much more firmly in the wheelhouse of a statistician, so I told him it sounds like he probably something I would want to be heavily involved in and so we ended up starting this collaboration, and that was kind of started it all, so we tried lots of different sorts of things. Things to take the music and be able to figure out. How can you predict authorship from musical features, and that's essentially what led us down the path to the work that eventually got published so from my perspective, wearing my data scientist hat, I would say you have a fixed data set that is partially labeled. Does that feel like the right framing for you? The main question of interest really and just to take a step back is that there are a handful of songs by the Beatles and again there's nothing about this problem that has to. To be specific to be spent for our interests there handful songs by the Beatles that or of disputed authorship, and so the idea is that you start off with a data set where the labels which is to say the authorship of Lennon McCartney songs is known that's known because the Beatles Bayside interviews in various information that's been gathered over the years is of note authorship, so we have a data set where the labels are no, and then in addition to that we have for all of those songs. We have a whole bunch of features A. A whole bunch of information about various musical aspects of the songs and idea is to form a statistical model that uses those features to predict the labels, and then once you establish that relationship then you apply to the songs of disputed authorship to see the predictions going to be based on that relationship, so for non composers who might be listening? Perhaps they could be intimidated by this problem. Saying music is all about creativity and unpredictability in these sorts of things. Is this truly assault problem from that point of view well? Yes, solvable a loaded word. I mean we certainly made our best attempt by Best Ibiza? After making lots of attempts that were not terribly predictive, we finally stumbled on said features and a statistical approach that seems to do a pretty reasonable job. Making predictions, the simple answer I suppose is yes, it's possible at solvable in the sense that there is information that you can extract. That is predictive of other ships. I could be pretty. Pretty concrete about this one thing that we knew before going into this work, and this is something that has been well known by musicologists studying. Beatles, music, which is that Paul? McCartney songs in particular tend to have melodies that tend to move around a lot like Paul McCartney, had a musical vocal range, fairly wide and part of that tended to be reflected in his moving melody by contrast John Lennon. had a reasonable vocal range tended to write melodies that didn't move around very much like he used a lot of repeated notes, or the vocal movements would stay very close and pitch, and that's characteristic of a lot of John Lennon songs, and so we knew even going into the problem that you know. musicologists have identified differences in the way that each of these songwriters would write music, so we knew that there were features that could be quantified and picked up. Up and used as distinguish irs in these classification models.
What Have We Learned From Elijah Wald's Escaping The Delta
"It's time to let it roll. This is your host Nate Wilcox and we're doing a special. What have we learned episode once again with my friend and colleague Dr? Larry Campbell Yuri welcome back. Good to be here can't get good so today. We're GONNA. Look back on. Elijah Wald's book escaping the Delta and my interview that we did with him. and. We picked us up this book in that episode because. Other than Ed. Ward who basically taught me everything I. Know about analyzing music is a cultural history. Elijah Wald's books, this one and how Beatles destroyed rock and roll, which we'll talk about the next episode of what have we learned. Really expanded my mind because it took. It's a revisionist take on what has been disagree romanticized history of Robert Johnson, and the Delta Blues and found walls attempts to reevaluate Johnson. From the perspective of his peers and contemporaries, basically the black African that African American Blues Fan of the Nineteen Thirties and. Rather than from the perspective of generally white blues, fans of the nineteen sixties to now so it just totally blew my mind I tried to capture that to great interview. But the main point that the book put across that Robert Johnson was just a human being who sang and played beautifully. He wasn't a mythical figure. That probably wasn't really devil at the crossroads he wasn't. A country Bumpkin? He was a sophisticated sharp-dressed cat who travelled widely who listen to all kinds of music, not just what he heard live in the delta, but listen to the radio listener guards and learn so having said all that. How do you think we did did did I get that across in the interview with walled? Yeah, I think the book and the interview with Wall. You know Really, helps a flesh out. You know the the basic ideas that you were just talking about. And really helps to make it clear. that you know the blues artists of the late Twenties and early thirties in the early twenties really. Physically people that they were professionals. That they were participating in You know the creation of. New Cultural forms new sort of musical expressions. While at the same time. trying to freeze their audiences. Who had know? Fairly sophisticated demand and varying labs. Right so that the artists themselves as you suggested had to have A. Wide ranging set of skills, they had to have been aware of those sort of traditional musical expressions, and you know like in the case of the blues, things like Hollers and loans, and that sort of thing well also being aware of of popular music. Which by the nineteen thirties you're talking about. Artists like Duke. Ellington and Louis Armstrong and and People that are appearing in films on the radio, etc.. And so the picture of Blues. As this sort of backwater expression. Rural Culture Coming from people who were simply oppressed and trapped and you know on some level were expected to the ignorance. And poverty stricken just didn't hold you know I mean. You couldn't can be successful blues artists if you travel the country and rags. showed up at. Various venues unable to relate to modernizing audiences. And I think I think the book captures that really well. and. I thought your interview with Wall. Made that clear.
Heavy Metal? Not Us.
"All right. I had to actually check that I hadn't done an episode on this before. Because it's a perfect episode, the kind of thing that I thought I would have done early on So this is episode four. We're going to call this heavy metal, not us. Okay, so the idea here is. We're going to be talking about the concept of bans that aren't particularly heavy metal bands that, for some reason, end up making amazing, amazing heavy metal when they get to it and possibly why that might happen you know the idea to do this I've always thought this concept and debated it with a lot of people, but I was actually on earlier today on Pete Pardo's sea of tranquility, and we were doing a deep cut dive on bluest her cult, and it kind of rambled around to this this topic. And he said this was a great example of that and I was thinking, is it a great example of that is definitely an example of that. But I, but I kind of got to thinking that bluish are cult complicated case, but there are other bands that are even better examples of this so I thought. That will be my next episode. So this is how this came about now I, want to give you a little history on this idea, so you know essentially we're not. We're not here to to debate bands like For example there are bands throughout heavy metal, history, or whatever rock history that don't consider themselves. Heavy metal bands that do a lot of heavy metal. Classic example is when Lemme gets up there alive and says we're motorhead. We play rock and roll right. Little More Lemme later maybe but also black Sabbath talk. We're blues, Band and deep purple you know, says various things you know where we're at Jan, were progressive, rock band. We're jazz, rock band, red jazz band whatever whatever sort of floats their boat, but they usually don't say we're a heavy metal band. Now more in of these examples later on, but to go right back to the beginning. You know it's interesting that this concept you know. Mike, my good friend, Ralph Chapman. We always have these debates over Banger, or we did when we were there in these meetings to put together these shows and stuff where where it's always like the Beatles did everything I well so. Here's an example of this happening so in a way. Helter skelter is an example of kind of doing this I and I interviewed Paul McCartney back for my Queen Book Awhile Ago. And after we were done talking about queen you know I. I asked him a few other things and We were talking about helter skelter, and this is what he told me. I think that heavy metal came out of a desire to rock into rock, big and dirty and loud, and for that you don't have to have rules you talk about what made us do. Helter skelter desire to rock, dirty and loud, and when I listened to it now I think Oh. Gosh I thought it was louder dirtier than that? Because Times have changed, but I think it's just that if you're in a rock and roll band, and your soul is anchored in the Sea of rock and roll and you want to do it, you WanNa participate to your fullest. Fullest and sometimes that means being dirty. Being loud guitar are famous for turning up to eleven, and that's very understandable. Desire I. Mean I still now when I get with my band. We're at a soundcheck just strapping on my electric guitar, kicking it a pedal tearing it up. That's the spirit that kind of goes through rock and roll. You know it's a thrill anyone who has ever owned an electric guitar and put it through. An amp knows that thrill so I think that's where it all came from the desire to just thrash out. That's why we did helter skelter. Now. This doesn't include kind of the back story about Pete Townsend, saying you know where the loudest heaviest band in the world and Paul McCartney's natural. You know competitive nature to to compete with with the WHO and a and this is kind of this narrative. That they were trying to out heavy. The WHO so here's a band who's not a heavy metal band by any stretch of imagination. Just saying right, you want heavy metal. Let's let's give you some heavy metal I seem to recall I might have talked about this in another episode, but but excuse me in that pursuit, because some of these bands that we're gonNA. Talk about here. I have talked about another APSOS, but I'm going to be talking about specific specific to this concept. So, hopefully we'll be a You know a different dynamic when we're talking about these bands now. One other quote before we get to our first one, this one even more infocus a puts together this concept, so this is from Scott. Gorham from thin. Lizzy and I've always loved this quote. and we're GONNA include thin. Lizzy later on, but we'RE NOT GONNA. Do this song in honor of. Basically Scott Gorman thin, lizzy. We're going to include thin lizzy, but they fit perfectly anyway so. We were talking about Angel of death, which is which is a a very heavy metal song on the renegade album from nineteen eighty-one. He says yeah, absolutely bub-bubba calling weather sucks. We never We never ever put ourselves in the medal stakes. We always consider ourselves hard rock band, which to me just entails a little bit more in the songwriting side, rather than just heavy metal guitar riffs going constantly through all the songs, but yeah, we did not want to go down the metal road to us. The metal thing and I don't mean this any. Any disrespect to any of the guys, but it seemed a little corny to us, so we tried to avoid that side of it, and plus we knew that there were a lot of guys out there. That did that kind of John, well, but it was just one of those tracks where we recorded it. Listen back to it and for a time there. It wasn't one of our favorites. But yeah if anybody actually called. US, heavy metal, we would actually jump all over them, and the correction would start there, you know. We considered ourselves in absolute hard rock band, but definitely not a metal band the difference between the two genres. Band, it all depends on the riff drum groove in the guitar riff, whereas with hard rock, it's all about the groove and the lyrics and the melody the song and that's why we went out of her way to explain that we are a heavy metal or are. We are a rock band. And then fill linnet, said That's one of the facets of You know what I was just told Interesting side note by one of the listeners I always said Phil Line it for years and years and years, and then I was corrected, and said Phil Lynnette for years and years and years, and now I've been corrected again with a little bit of proof that it is in fact, fill line at Because he says that Phil used to say when he was correcting people, he would say line it. Why not? So there you

Why Do Ladybugs Have Spots? Do Dragonflies Bite?
"We're talking about dragonflies and ladybugs. And we're going to be joined by someone. We've talked to before on an episode. We did about moths. I'm kept McFarland with a Remote Center Frigo Studies Research Biologist and I like to study insects and all kinds of other flying things. Why in the world do you like to study insects of all the creatures you could study? Well you know. I've studied birds and I've studied mammals, but insects to in my world. Everything you can think of. That's in the movies insects do it. They do strange things that we'd never imagined possible, and and it just excites me to go out there and find out what they're doing. Strange things like what lift something that would be like US lifting a car or leap tall buildings that kind of thing. Yeah. They're like the Superman the animal world, they can do all of things that we couldn't dream of Fahd of the sky for hundreds of feet. Fly Long distances. Long distances like three thousand mile sometimes longer than we never imagined swim underwater for long periods of time. I mean you name it. They do it so. The water and walk on the ceilings. Yeah, so it's just crazy things they do. There are so many kinds of insects estimates range between two million and thirty million different types of insects. If you count up the total number of these animals themselves, scientists think there are ten Quintillo individual insects on our planet. But we can't do an episode about all of them. Just think how long that would be. We're going to focus on to cool types of insects. You have sent us questions about dragonflies and ladybugs, but even those are categories of insects with lots of different species within them, as we'll find out more about later, but first. Let's dive into some of your questions. My Name's illegal. I live in Seattle Washington in my question is. Why do ladybugs have spots? Claire. I am six years old. I live in rent. Would Missouri and My question is how do ladybugs get their spots I Aria that result I live grateful or Kaleida it by question is how to ladybugs have spots well. Here's the interesting thing about ladybugs. There's a lot of different kinds of ladybugs and the ones that we usually think of are the ones that are red with black spots or sometimes a little white spots on them. And that represents maybe you. A quarter of the species of ladybugs, there's a whole bunch of other ladybugs that are black, Brown, red white, even some kind of other colors mixed in like yellows, and so the traditional thing we think of the ladybugs of the ones that are black and red, but there's all kinds of others that have all kinds of other patterns and colors associated with them how they get their spots. I'm not really sure how they exactly get their spouse, but one of the things is spots. Spots are the patterns are probably on them, so that is a warning to other insects or even birds that they might not want to eat them, because they might taste poorly, and so it's a way to defend themselves against being eaten by birds or other insects to some types of ladybugs have a certain number of spots and others have a different number, or could you know the same kind of lady bug lined up ten different individual bugs. You'd get ten different spot patterns. The answer is yes. It happens, both so there are lady bugs that have certain number of spots in evac through even named after that, so there's a native lady bug in North America called. The nine spotted lady bug, and it has nine actually, and there's the seven spotted lady bug, and it usually has seven spots. There's a twenty spotted lady bug, and you get the picture. There's different kinds of ladybugs that have different amount of spots, but sometimes within those groups they can have a variety of spots, so there's one. One kind of Lady Bug comes from Asia called the Asian ladybugs that's been introduced. It's been brought here in an outlives. North America and sometimes it can have almost no spots, and sometimes it can have maybe a dozen or more spots on it, so it's really variable. Compared to say, the nine spotted lady bug, which almost always has nine spots, and we have listeners and I think every continent. EXCEPT ANTARCTICA, we haven't gotten a question from Antarctica and do ladybugs also live on every continent except Antarctica. I'm pretty sure they are on every continent, except Antarctica. Yes, and that brings us to this question. Hello, my name is Hallelujah I live in. Rwanda CA golly. My question is. How many different types of ladybugs are there? There are over five thousand different species or types of ladybugs in the world. And as Kent said, it's not just the spots that vary, their colors can vary, too, but those colors are basically always there to warn predators that the lady bug will taste terrible now. Some of you are probably wondering why they're called ladybugs. Anyway or maybe you aren't even sure what insect were actually talking about. Not everyone calls them ladybugs for example. If you live in the United Kingdom you might call them, lady, birds or Ladybird Beetles and Kent says he actually doesn't like the name Lady Bug because they're Beatles, not

Nikola Badger electric truck reservations open
"Hot new electric vehicle maker. Nikola has been surging since it's June. Fourth debut up over seven percent next week could be a major moment of truth of the company joining us now is Trevor Milton, founder and Executive Chairman of Nikola Motors. Welcome back Trevor Great to speak with you. Mondays win reservations. Open up what you're expecting. Expecting a lot of fun and a lot of excitement, so we've all been waiting for this. For a long time Negro finally allows people to make paid reservations for the Nikola, Badger. It's the coolest. Truck pickup truck. The world's ever seen so Yeah, it's a big day on Monday on also those reservations turn into. Tickets for Nikola world happening December, when we show off the Badger, so it's just the next four or five months is just going to be an incredibly fun time you mentioned. It's the coolest pickup truck. The world has ever seen. The world hasn't seen it. Has It traveling I mean at what point will will the world actually see a truck and one that can operate as opposed to seeing mock mockup pictures because that's that's really the question for a lot of analysts and investors, they like the long-term vision they see the total addressable market is very large. The potential is very big, but then they go back to you. Guys have not made a truck yet. Well, we have made a truck. Actually meet the most advanced semi truck. The world's ever seen. We showed it off last year driving on fuel-cell, we made deliveries with anheuser. Busch these are big semi truck, so the technology's all done, which is now bringing it into the into the smaller market, and it's kind of fun I mean. Yeah, we haven't showed it off to the world, but that's the fun of it. The next four months everyone's gotta wait gotta get in line and Monday. The reservations open in December. They'll all get to see it in person so all the critics lot. Trucks. In December I understand that at unequal world. You're going to line this up against competitors. You might do a little I don't know racing or comparisons. Will it be operable in? December will actually be a truck that people be able to test drive. Who are there or that? You'RE GONNA. Actually drive onto the stage or or something to that effect. Oh, yeah. I'm probably going to rip up on whether it's ours or someone. Else's I can't promise you. WHO's is GonNa win, but I promise you is going to be a show, so yes, it will be operable in a bumper is coming off one of the vehicles, maybe even a whole rear end of a truck. I mentioned this because you had an interesting tweet. The June about Nikola world, not being a fake truck show, and there is a Bloomberg article article a couple of weeks ago, that that asserted that you had misled the audience back in two thousand sixteen when you were unveiling the Nikola one making references to a truck that was drivable when actuality it lacked parts that would enable it to operate at all. Are you suing Bloomberg over this, did you? Did you not make those comments? Was it in fact, this sort of a fake truck show in two thousand sixteen. Knows a total hit. Job Is really sad. I talked with him before he even had the cloud, it was all recorded. He refuses to release. The recording. Any would show the world the truth. I mean the answer was as every part on that truck was functionable. We just didn't feel safe driving. And at that time that was our first chuck what four or five years ago? Ago It was all operable, but it wasn't really that safe like it could have killed someone in the audience. We didn't know we are new. And so all the parts were there, though even took him out and showed them on the table, the people and and so it's kind of sad that I think it was just. It was just a hit job. Someone wanted clicks. Just, wasn't that cool, but that's okay I mean it comes with the territory when you're when you're coming out here with this kind of valuation and excitement, everyone always targeting for you and I. I kind of laughed with them as I said look, there's a lot of things you can hit me on. This is one that's kind of crazy. Because that's five years ago and the people there Oh tell you everyone there. We actually talked about it at the show so sure why he picked that. That fight okay, so between now and December thirty th when when Nikola world happens, you're asking investors to basically say we believe you in terms of your timeframes for delivering these vehicles whether it'd be the Nikola one or the Badger. We believe you in terms of the reservations turning into actual actual orders. What can you tell us? Though in terms of tangible progress towards meeting production targets whether it be who partnered with for the Badger or what what stage you are in the manufacturing process. Yes. We've got a couple of big cities going on over the next four or five months giving a lot of comfort to people one is we ever factory in Germany with the BECO-? We did a joint venture with them. We have the first ever zero emission semi truck coming off the assembly line right now, handbuilt units. I'll be taking videos of those. Showing some testing of those to the world as well over the next day following months. That'd be a Lotta Fun. The badger will be leaking videos to the public as well when they're. You know it's all about the leader. I mean the four months. All the way into. I guess our many months until December that leading into that as the excitement, so we don't want to give it all the way at once, but we'll be announcing who build Nikola Badger with us in the next couple of months. I'm on how many reservations we have the open Monday this Monday eleven o'clock eastern all that Nikola Badger reservations open up so people can get in line with them and they. They also get a ticket to Nikola world, so there's GonNa. Be a lot of data leak videos I've done if you follow me in the last few days, I've done on our battery technology wherever the only submerge battery technology really out there. That's really really danced pretty awesome. Idea deals on that Beatles are infotainment system. All these systems that people thought were fake, and so it's just kind of cool to like. Kind of fun to prove the critics on a little bit every time, not just give everything away in one day you. Can See Trevor that proving the critics wrong involves actually not just making videos and talking about these fantastic technologies, but actually putting them to work, so there's a little bit of skepticism amongst critics at this point, because everything or many things that you're promising are still promises even though they are, they are there and they're. They're promising technologies. I WanNa ask you about what has pressured the stock in recent days, and that is a registration of warrants on file with the SEC is expected to become effective in the coming days I. Don't know if you have any comment as to win. You expect that to happen because that could be a major overhang for the stock jp P.. Morgan is estimating in its initiated notes that that can mean tens of millions of shares coming to market of Nikola. y'All to answer the best. TRUMP SEC so ultimately, you're warrants that are gonNA come in, and once those are approved by the year with our ask finally. We're waiting on the SEC to give one approval that could take anywhere from a couple weeks to months. No one has any time line on that because it's the SEC, and so it's kind of interesting. A lot of people are putting articles out there that all these shares are hitting, and it's not even true is not accurate. Some will eventually shares come online. People bought shares Dave the desert on. But we don't know when they're gonNA. Come in when they do. Come. Most of these share folders that we have our long-term shareholders. They're like you know what I have. No desire to sell minutes for the long run. There are some that will cause. The value is increased so much that they're required to sell some of their portfolio because they can one item that much value in a portfolio so I. Guess that's the that's the. Punishment for doing really well, so some will sell some, but other people will buy, so it's just a stock market. That's how it goes. Travers speak with you. We hope we'll talk to you again and keep us informed on on. How are you can give us a number? On Monday. Monday because we'll be getting all that data in we'll see it depends on depends on all the data, but I will be given out some information coming after that after that day of just not sure win because it just. Data look far to trevor thank you. Trevor Milton of. All Right Guy, what do you think? I was absent that day in high school. We did the periodic table, so I'm not familiar with the properties of hydrogen, but what I will say is J. P.. Morgan just initiated with a forty five dollars price target and feels like that's where the stock is going to go. This could very well be be K.. Put It in the draw stock much like Tesla was literally have ten seconds. Would you say it's put in the door, vk? I would absolutely not. It's not a putting the dry. Thank God. Trevor's very enthusiastic and probably the best salesperson his company could. Could ask for

"The Beatles and me what is exciting assignment how often would you right on the mark for all the time or just at the concert right right right about them every day and and can I just go off of of course you're very very briefly here because moments together you played a sensational singa seeing Houston and I think it was the mob got that right okay now the reason I mention Dean Martin was I was with the margin when he met the Beatles in nineteen sixty four and I tell you what happened is a story that out not too many people know Alan Livingston who was the boss of Capitol Records decided to do a fundraiser garden party in the Brentwood house belonging to his mother in law and it was an incredible party because being showed up with his wife and with Dino Judea and the other kids and they met the Beatles who sat around on high chairs and met all the stars of Hollywood tonight and I enjoyed themselves it was kind of an incredible body and there was Groucho Marx then Angela's Iago born and the market and I I know and it's one of those vivid memories you never forget I heard I heard that Frank Sinatra was a little up tight with the Beatles is that true well if he was little appetite with the Beatles I don't remember them actually meeting him but I think he I think you got to love the Beatles because don't forget he did yesterday he did a lot of copper copper songs of the Beatles so whenever I mean Sinatra as you remember and I remember I mean he was a condom ludi guy a brilliant talent and and and I also was able to interview him over the years he was a top three days but with dean and Sammy and Peter Lawford and so Sinatra was huge at the time and and and and even he may have been disenchanted with the base of the first because everybody and Elvis was disenchanted with the Beatles because the Beatles not every single one of them off the hit parade anyway sorry to get that that's okay in the beach boys I think saw the Beatles as a role as rivals right what they did but don't forget they were around at the same time and they finally became fairly friendly because the several of the beach boys not Brian Wilson who decided he didn't like to fly but the other beach why is that I think call in a couple of the others my clothes yet Michael out flew to us I think with Seattle and and in nineteen sixty five and they would came backstage and they met the Beatles and they'll go along pretty well of course Brian Wilson as everybody knows stop touring I mean he was scared of flying he had his problems but by and Brian Wilson is still around today still performing getting off the off the subject he's a genius Brian we are on a Wilson I made quite quite brilliant and down at the beach boys are still performing I mean in in various incarnations harbor what was it about the Beatles that have them explode worldwide I mean what was this planet looking for and the timing for that must've been perfect it was perfect and they appeal to these young teenage girls who who but I mean I spoke to the young teenage girls after the show and I said to them we don't want you doing here and and and then years later I met many of the young women who were now older women and I said Hey you scream so long I couldn't hear a damn good and you know we had a bit of fun hello I said what was the what was the appeal and the woman who ran like Nordstrom's department stores and again she was a high executives said I love the Beatles I was in love with Paul and he was in love with me and I said oh how do you know he said well and whenever I went to a show he waved at me and smiled at me and I knew he loudly so that kind of gives you that since since SCS of what all these young women felt they were in love with various members of the Beatles and somehow they believe the Beatles were in love with them and that was kind of a a magic formula at the you just couldn't dream up but there it was where were you December eighth nineteen eighty the night John Lennon was shot down I was in southern California I got a call from a friend and and I want to tell you it it was it was as opposed to with terrible terrible shock but I lived in America I was with Bobby Kennedy when he got shot in the kitchen of the ambassador hotel I was in America when John Kennedy got shot and in a way I mean not that the sh the shock of the shootings didn't have an impact but but you say no not again at eight eight you know it's horrible but somehow because it's happened before it I don't know it it it it I I'm not exactly sure how I'm describing it but I don't know so I'm giving you the right impression deja vu is there no another another life I mean for John Lennon what did he deserve to die so young at all for what is so were you in shock I was in shock but but you know I I but that is living in America covering big stories covering it and things like that doesn't say the Bobby Kennedy saying is seeing it and and covering the off the mouth of John Kennedy somehow it it's it's it's a third or fourth time and then in nineteen sixty eight C. sixty eight I think Martin Luther king got shot and and and so famous figures being killed somehow it seems like part of the way things are and and that kind of maybe some of the shock if you can say that they'll probably didn't John Lennon's murderer who is going to be easy sixty five years old in may he is still around if you had a chance to interview him what would you ask him well I would skim I mean I've read a lot about what he said I mean I think he was certainly mentally unbalanced as the I think there's no doubt about it but does that an excuse to get killing a legend is it or anybody yeah I I mean I would say I think if I said to him what a terrible way still or those kind of things he would come up with some kind of he's been through the shrink machine and he knows how to on set so I don't know what I would ask him but he would probably give me the many aunts as it is given and I think he's written about it it it it's just that a horrible blocked but because you know this year it's gonna be around who knows what but this year is the fiftieth anniversary of the Beatles breaking up so I saw it happening it didn't happen when I was on tour but with Brian Epstein's deaths and the and a poll going his way in John going his way and all the the divorce of the Beatles was are often not and it was fifty years ago this year so I don't know I I it it it's when you examine you saying can does the people of analyzed it but the big has never thought that their longevity would would extend to more than fifty years I can tell you that they they thought they would last five years at the most I doubt when they were kids in Liverpool plane in their little band they never thought it would explode like this never did I mean even on the road even with the frenzy of what I saw that every single concert and how mad it was at the airport and at the hotels they John story with lots of five years Ringo told me he was going to get out and take his money and open a hairdressing Salam's his then girlfriend dole said he might write music John said he might write music for other rock and roll people they never imagined in nineteen sixty four that you and I would be talking about them today the way we are exactly when they came out in hit the United States with a series of great songs saying they had just you know she loves you a hard day's night all this who wrote those songs close John I'm told what a phenomenal writing machine and part of the reason they they were a writing machine was that Brian Epstein their manager I must give him credit because he turned the grimy kids into the Beatles Brian Epstein so and them to produce album off the album after album show when we were on the road it was very often I booked into John suite which was like two doors away and there was John sitting on the floor with poor yellow pads writing music so they they have to produce and they was such that was so fluent in writing that I mean look at it today I forget the number of songs but there are several hundred songs and many of the several hundred songs regular songs that we will know songs that today my kids and my grandkids no and possibly yours do and and so the longevity is astounding it truly is and and then the songs are just remarkable I mean they the way they put it together then when they started to make the flip I couldn't understand what was happening I was kind of a street kid growing up I ever you know you play sports I was in third or and and you know didn't grow my hair long or anything like that but when they switched to the sergeant pepper's lonely cliparts bands time I want all my god what's happened to them what was that then the Maharashtrians and all that stuff well well you've got to realize that when I toured with him in nineteen sixty four in in in the early years I I call it a lolly pop music I wanna hold your hand and she loves me yeah yeah yeah very little divergence for those early cell but it worked it did work I meet people loved it but then what happened wal George Martin who was their record producer was a genius in the in the recording studio and so if you look at the way that music evolved from the straight up and down south to the stop with cellos and orchestras in the sergeant pepper's staff and all the at and and and and such so many other great songs that too many to mention by name the way the orchestrations changed and the Beatles music I mean all right I went to a symphony concert not long ago and they had become musics yeah that's so so many artists have taken their songs and played with them and at the same time made them hits and Peggy Lee and Sinatra new name them everybody did the Beatles songs and they're still evergreens that played it today all over the world you've got some great pictures in the Beatles and be block how did you get those well some of the pictures were taken unfortunately I didn't have my I phone camera with me if we didn't have those around them yes that's why that's why I and what happened was some great photographers to around and Harry Benson news it's a terrific photographer from New York Cheryl Maitland who was a photographer who lives in Ashland Oregon the late for talk about voice the **** will died last year some terrific photographers worked with the Beatles cut gowns that is no longer with us traveled with me one joy great photographers on the two are very kindly provided me with a selection of pictures which made the book I mean without pictures you've got to have pictures I mean every time somebody picks up my book the first thing they do is they never mind the words let's look at the pictures he did like going on stage a lot going on stage they they they enjoyed it but you know John said to me towards the end of the second year of touring on the third year of touring you know we want people to hear our music but they come to see us he said he said will like freak show lose will like traveling circuses and we want to stop this because they come on here is singing anyway and we want to concentrate purely on our music and of course that was one of the reasons why they broke up and besides the feuding and the behind the scenes messy divorce as you know that that there was there was a feeling that people were coming to see them not to have them interesting spot in in now today we know Paula still toward what is Rango doing window is still touring with the all star band and he is very good very clever Ringo I mean Ringo and he would probably admit it didn't have the greatest voice of the mole and yet he's copies made certain songs yellow submarine and a lot about the cell pardon she's what was that one song they're gonna put me in the movies that was one of his first ones right right but but when you look at and I I know I look at them look back very often George and see that Ringo and George Harrison what kind of like the second string singles the main songs will by John and pull because the exact and and and and and George used to cynically tell me well you know they threw me a more cell yes John and Ringo felt the same way after he was the drummer he wasn't the sink at so John Paul with the the brilliant brilliant writers but as George involved and they see for those Ringo involved they turned into great some watches of their own music I mean look at your job some of his songs he he matured incredibly well but during the first season of touring in.

"From london england today a day in the life of a beatles tour guide richard porter has been taking tourists tests from near and far beatles hotspots in london and telling them stories about the fab four since the nineties during busy season in the summer richard gibbs two detours a day and somehow he found time to squeeze in a walkabout with us now richard does not beat around beatles bush. He told us to meet him at the legendary <music> abbey road recording studios. He was dressed for the occasion. You said you were going to have an abbey road bag shirt and you are so you must be retained. It's nice to meet you. Thanks so much richard standing in a crowd of fans from all over the world who have made the pilgrimage to see the outside side of the beatles former studio pretty much. Everything was quoted here abbey road studios ninety percent in the material was done here. Yanni album not recorded here was the let it they album over the years abbey road has become home to artists like radiohead oasis kanye west amy wine house lady gaga movies like the lord lord of the rings trilogy and black panther have been scored here and although the studios aren't open to the public that doesn't stop beatles fans from trying to get as close as they possibly league can. There's a wall a couple of feet high in front of the building and is absolutely covered with love notes scrawled by visitors to the beatles and with so so many people coming by all the time. It's hard for abbey road studios to keep up with the graffiti. This war is painted. Every two laps. Really this is about four is worth. Apparently it's been painted so many times must be civil. Inches thicker was originally built in fact you can see here some of the co- come away house house paint their notes addressed to john paul george and ringo there are beetles lyrics scribbled a few different people have written strawberry fields.

"Eighty publications on the day of publication got their amazing exclusive for the first time they went absolutely fucking furious but there was nothing they could do because there's no money to you know they were given. They ran it. The book went to Number One. It stayed at number one. It was thirty two thousand. It was thirty five pounds it. It went on to sell half a million copies. It went to number one. We won illustrated book of the but I mean that's the business sites but what's really interesting about it is it's what do you do as. Neil used to say what you do if you've got the biggest brand in the world but you can't do anything with it you know stay on the stones need to do they just tour and they make a lot of money out of band since nineteen seventy and he pointed out that he said to get any decisions made he said. I'm going to have Paul's people who said I've gotTa have gotTa have Georgia's people I've got a whoever the hell Ringo thinks he has his people and he said I've got fucking so he set my life. I know your life is difficult John but it's believe me because my life so the book could've been it could've been bland. It could've been it could've been obvious but in fact it's an extraordinary thing as it's an as I say that and I think just for the visuals alone. I'm really one little package but what I like about. It is the intimate that holiday snaps. What's the sense of the particularly is particularly good on the early years where the Beatles were dealing with saying. This is an amazing story about there's a warehouse. They have to hire a warehouse to put in in Georgia's twenty first birthday presents. I mean he's George Harrison died. The presents were still somewhere. They never they never go to open the hundreds of thousands since the presence that were sent in millions probably from all over the world. Nobody had seen fame on this scale before nobody lived through it. Elvis to an extent but this was who's global in a way that had never been witnessed before and they they they took eight they did fourteen hundred live gigs the other thing. I like about the book. Is You get mal. Evans is the driver. You get neal's voice. It's not just the Beatles voice and here's a little bit of neo which I think just puts into perspective why they were extraordinary. Neil nobody even today would come off a long. USO Tour September go into the studio and start a new album still writing songs then go on a UK to finish the album in five weeks still touring and have the album in that time out for Christmas but that's what the Beatles did at the end of nineteen sixty four a lot of it was done too naive not thinking that this was the way things were done if the record company needs another the album you go and make one nowadays of a band had as much success as the Beatles had by the end of nineteen sixty four they'd start making demands if you look at the workshop in late nineteen sixty three three and right through eight nine hundred sixty four you'll see it really was incredible on top of the tours and the records and the film they did a Christmas show and all the TV shows top of the POPs. Thank thank your lucky stars around the Beatles thirty seven shows and all the BBC radio show twenty two it was non. Stop Brian was beginning to plan quite far ahead Ed at Christmas nine hundred sixty four he would be planning for the tour of America. Sixty five trying to get a script together for help and you would have been planning whatever they were doing. Somebody would suggest come. Can we have a holiday as well Bryan while all this was going on you. Just don't work quite that now as a when you're doing a lot that way with the autism autists this traditionally a kind of tension between the autism. There's always something you want in there that they don't want in there that I think it was any controversy he really about it. I I think that the John Stuff had gone through Yoko Lot. They did nothing to promote it. I mean you were there was no beetle involvement. Movement atoll probably around about this time we did. We did a program for Ball mccown of you. You did and Adamy to with McCartney and I said do you keep anything anything you know. D. Keeps stuff. He said Oh yeah sentence in a car. Go and look at it until I was giving you know the access to this place in these standing hackney. I think it was most which was given I was a child. SARCI aren't Kalash and the rest of it was pulled collection which have the keys to the city every city in the United States. You don't millions of gold this and early letters from his bank manager in Liverpool pointing out of the money for me. Am I fourteen. Would he pounds at come in. Don't spend it all at once the might not be there was his pepe jacket. was that old cap misquote longtime the guy. We must have been added to numerous. I mean there was some plan. David Kosta really wants to do the memorabilia that that means a lot of this sorta photo got dropped into book and you're talking about the Abbey Road. It's one of my favorite pages. It's just them before during an off to the Abbey road shoot and sort of sadness creeps into the imagery in the very early kind of happy shots of replace more and more by four men obviously not guessing on it's so great photo as well as the more. I'm going what a segue into the marks book next the white interested in about the anthology now the whole project the the the records the DVD's that ATV series the this book. It seems in retrospect they are very of the nineteen nineties that the Beatles have this very particular resurgence in the mid ninety s Harley Paul from flaps generational. It's partly because of the Beatles it's partly because of Britpop which as John Harris says in his book if you want to understand one of the reasons why Britpop happened open dates because everyone who was born in the late sixties grew up with the sixties myth I'm wanted their own sixties yeah and there you have each generation gets the Beatles. It's deserves right you know which which which group I meet but also the book chosen Mark in Donald's revolution in the head that was published at the same time and that seemed to me one of those Lucky publishing moments that the Roy book hit the Roy audience at the right time yeah absolutely absolutely right I mean he came in nineteen ninety four. I think it really struck me in McDonald was a enemy writer scholar and a musician actually incredibly interesting original guy his Zaire walls that up till then most of what we knew about the Beatles biography it was about people looking at their you know that that cultural relevance and they're they're social social impact what we did in in their lives and he he thought that did it be addressed was the fundamental foundation of the entire. Beatles Empire Poem Home which it's all built which is of course the astonishing level of ambition of experiment of invention that went into their music. The book is entirely tally about music. It's about the one hundred eight songs that they released and it looks at them in the order in which they recorded in a self contained item so you look at each song when you look at the influence on that song where the lyric idea came from with construction came from the main composer was how that song evolved in the studio the sound effects of the doubled old. I think it changes the way you look at that museum. How many people in the audience have read Revolution in the head. It's amazing quite a few. Would we say it's an amazing book. Yeah Yeah. It's an incredible McCartney or a big fan big fan no mark before you you re. Let's just hear a little clip of the song that Donald is about to analyze for us I that's what he tells you unreadable in a second what he tells you is again just extraordinary details. He gets across the the extra mile. The Beatles went musically lyrically the amount amount fought an effort which is what makes it so enduring. He talks at one point about the beat the two contradicting things at once a unique mixture of comfortingly safe an exhilarating. Lee Strange which is a brilliant idea gets across their accessibility and the reassuring nature in the commercial and also what makes them enduring what to go back and this is a really good example areas talking about the war. He said home in weighbridge around this time. Lennon was probing about when he's PIA. Nobody heard the droning to note siren of police car in the distance whether or not as a symbol of mean-spirited authority he instantly absorbed a semi tonal see-saw into an obsessive musical structure built around a perpetually actually ascending descending MC staircase of all the natural major chords so brilliant idea MC ashes turkeys the most unorthodox totally arguers sequence he ever devised the words took longer to come arriving several acid heightened weekends and passing through a number of phases according to Lennon's friend. Pete shot in the original ridgeline spray was from a boy at their old school quarry bank describing how he's English class analyzing the Beatles lyrics in fact which Lennon found Larry's is teaches at Quarry Bank particularly with English Mitch Teachers who was dismissed him some talent disruptor a rejection which left deep scars but reminiscent he and shot them recalled the typical playground nonsense chant. Yellow Matt accusted did Green Slop Pie all mixed together with a dead dog cy yet as the lyric progressed grew more pointed rising above the level of schoolboy knows thumb to embrace.

Yeah you could say could say he's reading too much into it. It's kind of meant to be colored just nonsense lyric but the idea that that what is what could possibly have meant and that's what led them put into it. I think he's absolutely astonishing and the other book mentioned throughout is this level of of coalition of cooperation yeah yeah the way they were. which I think is fantastic?

I I mean I like Paul McCartney but not much information those then we really short. I couldn't believe it. I was going to mention that later. I just couldn't believe it is the energy more that comes from the Beatles in this book to think well. I think the most exciting thing is that the journalist travels with inside the bubble level of the Beatles. I mean just to give you an idea of how this works. Today I went on a trip about four years ago said on an airplane around the world with reenter alot depress most people will be following. What actually happened realities? We were putting in Catholic laws. We analyze upfront sharpen fantastic bunker and she was brought out about twice during the entire week for the brilliantly stage-managed controlled exposure to the press dressers way saying certain thing doing certain things that's only access you got what's interesting about this is this is not somebody interviewing the Beatles no basing everything on the idea of what they say that coach is probably what they said to the person before the we'll site like the post off thought it's about somebody simply observing what the Beatles do and the Beatles pretty much twenty four hours a day or surrounded people you cannot Hannele believe in the Jewish Hotel John Bull's other. Let's go right to Sola accessible extraordinary at the press incredible access access. You wouldn't have now well. It was assumed that an awful lot as amount of what happened. They wouldn't report because they would not go that far. You know they wouldn't quote roxy pop styles else swearing that but that was what was unusual about that but I think this point about observing them is really important and it's something I've come to think about. What an awful lot more identity a brief detour? I interviewed Bob Dylan Harrowing Experience in Nineteen Eighty six and the bank stage of Madison Square Garden and there was the one who says how's it going and he says I do he. He keeps asking me all these Christian. That's my point because he'll laugh and then I thought about it ever since he's GonNa pefect fair point. What am I asking him questions for what secrets he gonNA telling. Would you really want to do their stars. You will watch the yeah. It'd be closer than you want to see how the interact with each other and that's what's really good about that book. It's a really good trait of how they function as this group of people people who run during men's pressure because still rely on each other and kind of loved each other but we're also not above being disrespectful to each other they daddy unique dynamic that no group had had before going back to your original point one of the things that I think about why the story it becomes the archetype doesn't it. They kind of set the archetype for the band. The kind of how four people can create incredible probably the most concentrated period of creativity activity of any band and how the closeness begins to fall apart they break-up musical differences wives and girlfriends but it's almost like it's it's like a sort of a mid cycle about fame and the effects of fame and ridiculous fame. There's no other band that can really do anything about reference back to the often think the Beatles wonderful group that they all would not have been nine influenced till radio faithfuls made everybody think they could write their own songs. I'm we all have the scars wants to prove that they couldn't there are very few groups. Write their own songs good example so we can take all that was there any requests and my love that oh fair enough yep no use saying about the way the the Beatles the trade in love me to there in the first flush of fame that being written about they've got ways of dealing with the press when you editor of Q.

"In nineteen sixty eight and remember this. Well, the Beatles put out not just a new album, but a double out the album art was simply a stark white glossy cover with raise slanted lettering. That simply said the Beatles that self titled album with its thirty songs spanning genres from American country music to avant-garde tape collage has come to be known simply as the white album and celebration of its birth fifty years ago, the Beatles label apple records has scoured the archives and has for the first time released early demo tapes studio outtakes and stunning remix both stereo and surround sound of the entire outon today. A conversation with the man who produced this hundred plus song celebration Giles Martin Giles's father, George Martin produced the white album along with most everything else to be. Heels ever did you'll also hear some of the demo tapes, the outtakes and some of the new remix is here. But first Giles Martin describes the making of the white outon. It turned out to be a much less planned and more organic process than ever and that frustrated George Martin the way he worked in the way the band, he was almost like an architect. So he had this ability to be able to have a blueprint album and build the album Nessun duper sergeant pepper now the white album the Beatles went we don't need not protect. We're going to build this from the ground up. That's the way I think the White House is built the white almost Bill Burr by brick with no idea about what it was going to be like in the end at for my father who liked officiency light organization. I mean, you know, I my my biggest full my dad was once when I mixed drink, and I didn't measure, it was disowned me as a son that was that was essentially what the Beatles were doing the white whiteout. And so he was kind of ostracized to send agree and people thinking that the white Tom was. The full Beatles wick as individuals. But it wasn't it was it was the band taking over and that's what we're going to hear. So they went to Ray Kirchen India, and they wrote salts and don't forget, they would no longer touring. So he before such touring, and they toured for four years constantly, but they were demonstrations in the with the weird thing about the white Tom is it being banned driven is they recorded demos for pretty much everything. We discuss these demos the issue demos, they'd had been bootlegged, but nothing always bad quality. So Alevi Harrison who's George Harrison's widow had the original tapes, and they are the template that became the white album, pick us one and paint a picture for us. Well, here is it is the state or what you shouldn't area that each is wet whereas house was George Harris Jewish Harrison's house. But I think that collegiate EMS I coulda feeling feeling inside. I have a feeling that that that they were all recruited to just houses Georgia house. I think that they were compiled that. But I got a feeling. Just because the room sound is different that pull John and George all had fortunate tame machines, and I think they made their own day was by the Beatles. A present so play back in the US SA and what you hear. Is you hit pulled twice? They old Oli SHA. Demos them double-track themselves. Just mean, they're seeing this the same thing twice not in perfect sync. But you can hear other Beatles in the background, you get timber and percussion.

"The key says there's a Provo picture from the ELO submarine that shows John Lennon flashing the devil's horns sign associated with this mysterious group and that Paul is making the six, six, six or eye of Horus hand, or as I like to refer to it the AL. Okay. Emoji hand. Is that what it is? Yeah, kind of. I mean, it's just like putting your finger and your thumb together in a circle and holding out your other three fingers. But if you if you draw a line through that that, oh, you're making and then the remaining three fingers, you get three sixes, but it's also it's literally that's what the six, six. But it's also literally, you know, an emoji for and it just means cool. Everyday is a okay, you know? Well, in some places it means, but whole. That's fair. That's that's. I think that's unfair to tourists who don't know that when we travel it was another conspiracy theory, or you know, kind of an alarmist thing that was making the rounds, I'll die power. What was the way power? I think it was like the teenagers were using that symbol in pictures, and it showed that they were what the kids called DT f. That's down to freak. Yeah. Oh, there's also one of the one of the pieces of evidence for the alumina idea is that the cover sergeant Pepper's lonely hearts. Club band also includes a host of quote, a luminosity stooges such as Alba's Huxley Karl Marx h. g. wells and playwright George Bernard Shaw. That's right. Showers in it too. Yeah. Yeah. A known known illuminates, Stu, just love it. When people are called stooges or tycoons a, we do have something else and one more tad on the pile here. And that's the idea that the Beatles did not release all their songs. Did you ever hear this? Yeah, this one's pretty pretty debunk -able, but it's one of those ones that I think rabid fans were so jazzed about the idea of they just wanted to let it ride, but what's the? What's the backstory? Yeah, it goes back to nineteen seventy-one. There's a British teenager in Martin Lewis. And he sends bootleg Beatles recording to a magazine in the includes extra track names on the bootleg songs like colliding circles left is right and right is wrong. Deckchair and pink litmus paper shirts and claim. They have been hidden away in the apple records vault. The thing is, of course, people thought this is amazing wanted to hear these new songs. But the thing is that later Luis confesses and says, the whole thing is a hoax. And like you said, no people don't believe him. He even explained it in an interview with USA today. When he said to my shock and horror, many Beatles fans refused to believe me. People told me your confession is a hoax. I know someone who's got those songs and so he says, I'm letting the cat out of the bag. Again, there are no hidden songs which is where we begin to wrap up the show today folks because for. Some of these theories that we've described some more plausible than others. They're always going to be people who say, if you are attempting to disprove what I believe, then that means you or part of the vast Beatles conspiracy, but what do you think? No. What do you think? Do you think any of these ads some sand or a grain of truth? Do you think Paul McCartney died in the sixties? I don't know, man, I hope not. He seems seems like the same old Paul, you know, and also it's on balance. We have to. We have to think of the ratio to be fair. There's a body double. He spent more time now being Paul McCartney than Paul McCartney did when he was alive. So you know, in terms of just time spent as Paul who is more genuine, I know that makes me sound like a horrible person not at all, not at all, but we also want to hear from you folks, fellow conspiracy realist, skeptics alike. Do you think that any of these claims have an amount of an amount of San? One thing we did not talk about which is a provable improving conspiracy, be corruption in the music industry.

"Growing increasingly distant in nineteen sixty nine. John Lennon privately tells the rest of the band that he plans to leave the parts get data l- they ask him to keep it under wraps. So they keep this statement private in April of nineteen seventy Ringo Starr is the only one to show up for a final studio session for Beatles record. There's no real formal announcement. They tended to let Peter out, but on April tenth, Paul publicly announces his own departure and news spreads that the Beatles are no more their thirteenth and final album. Let it be released on may eighth in the aftermath without delving into all the legal issues they had and all the personal acrimony that occurred. We should just say that the the band's up did not end well, it was not amicable and for a time, several members. Particularly, Paul McCartney felt really constrained and tied down by the various agreements they made in the as the Beatles in December of nineteen eighty. John Lennon fatally shot November of two thousand one, George Harrison succumbs to lung cancer. As we record this Ringo Starr and Paul McCartney are still alive still with us. The last living members of the world's best selling band. And oddly enough, many of their fence suspect these two men may hold secrets, their bandmates took to the grave. So here's where it gets crazy. Yeah. I mean, it's hard to be a band that rises to such meteoric fame so quickly and sustains that fame not only sustains it as a popular phenomenon, but actually as a critical darling, you know, and just considered to be incredible artists and songwriters and influencers of the site guys didn't like recording techniques in everything you could possibly imagine. Pop culture wise. These guys had their hands in, you know, it's very difficult to be that influential and not have people coming up with some interesting theories about stuff that that went on a specially considering that they were a little clandestine about certain aspects of their lives and their careers early on. They had this image of like the squeaky clean kind of boy band, almost like almost like a manufactured thing with the screaming, girls that Shea Stadium and whatnot. But then over time they, they evolved into much more grew like, you know, kings of psychedelia and then even beyond then became much more involved in activism and use their platform, especially Lennon to influence world events who which will get into. So when when you have those kind of conditions colliding, it's it's, it's it Bruce up. Some pretty interesting conspiracy theories, ooh, and we're going to talk about some of the most popular ones. Or the most, maybe some of them you may have heard of and some of them are a little under the radar. I have not heard of, but they're the most. They're the ones that interested us the most. Yeah. Yeah. We have to in honor of our compatriot map. We want to start with one of your favorite ones met. We know he's listening, hey, Matt, it's that Paul McCartney is dead. This is as you said, no one of the most well known perhaps strangest Beatles conspiracy theories. The idea is the following the real. Paul McCartney the one that you see in various interviews or appearances or the -cational cameo. Isn't Paul McCartney at all that man is an impostor, the genuine, Paul McCartney the little what's word? No, Liverpudlian Liverpudlian Liverpudlian the little Liverpudlian little Liverpudlian actually died in the early hours of November ninth nineteen sixty six after his car skidded off an icy road and crashed into a pole according to the story. When John Lennon George and Ringo found out about this death, they thought that they would not be able to come back from it because we just walk through there earlier time line. This is sixty six. A lot of great things are happening. They're reaching heights, but they think they have further to go. So according to this legend, they covered up his death by replacing them with a look alike. A guy named Billy shears who already looked acted even sounded like the actual Paul McCartney. You mean Billy shears from. A little help from my friends on, you know, when they go. Lee shoes, and that's the, that's the guy that's bring goes character in a little help from my friends. What would you think if they'll saying that's Billy shares? So this is that that's does a clue. Maybe it is. And I'm glad you mentioned clues here because they..

"And I know a lot of listening today will say, we'll, yeah, of course somebody's going to sneak up behind you and snip lock your hair that happens. You know, that happens on a semi regular basis, but this was a different time. So things begin to wear. You kidding what we kidding about lock if your hair's in the pre? No, that doesn't happen too. I don't think I've reached those heights yet. We hang out maybe just a different circles, I guess. So you can got together a lot though, but if people doing this to you, you, okay. Are you do? Do you want me to point it out when someone does it to you, please? Okay. You have my word anything that is being really stealthy about it? I'm just not noticing. I feel like I've seen it happen, but you acted like it was normal. I was none. The wiser, my friends. Well, that is, you know, as a team, we can all we can all do better. Also. Typically it is Matt who is sneaking up behind. You just want to put that out there. I've caught him doing that before. It's in the hall, but listen, I wanted to point one thing out here. We want in sixty five the Beatles play Shea Stadium, and it's just like Bonker nana's and it's like that was literally the MVP the creation of the arena, rock genre. Even though it's funny because the Beatles, you don't picture that as being a mega rock show because they're even even like their early stuff. It's a little more traditionally rock and roll again, who's very different time. Yeah, I think one of the things that really. The push them to that arena. Status is the earlier on July sixth of nineteen sixty four. They had debuted the film a hard day's night and they had released a soundtrack with that anonymous tenth that reached number one. It also that soundtrack included additional songs so they were doing something very intelligent. They were releasing albums concurrently, roughly concurrently with films. So if you a superfan you can embrace multiple avenues of phantom this way, they meet the Queen. They play the arena as you said, no, they release another film help. And the group internally and content wise begins to change on December third of nineteen sixty five. They released rubber sole. This is often cited as a turning point for the band. They begin to depart from those very straightforward rock and roll roots. We mentioned earlier. They released revolver in sixty six. They released sergeant Pepper's lonely, hearts, club band in sixty seven. It becomes the highest selling British album of all time. And I think it's still holds up. I really liked that album which one sergeant Pepper's lonely hearts called. But that's okay. It's okay. I think all the stone cold classic. My friend. Yeah, I agree. They released magical, mystery tour in nineteen sixty seven. That's actually my favorite November twenty seven. I just say psyche stuff on that Fave more so than the just the Beatles album in sixty eight album. Yeah, that to me, that's a different Beatles though. Like I really like like the magical mystery tour and sergeant pepper are like the most kind of candy driven psychedelic rushers that they have in their catalog. Then the white album has some weird stuff on it, but it's much more of a songwriter straightforward kind of. And they also say that was when they, their break-up was eminent because a lot of people refer to that album is a series of solo songs. What is true as he says, not a Beatles records, said it's a series of solo songs and we all this is something where the fans perhaps won out over the creators because the creators just released this white album cover and they called it the Beatles and opponent's record. But everyone else is called it the white album. And that's what it goes down in history as they've also been releasing films. But yes, their internal organization is beginning to stagnate.

"And at the time, here's Stewart's big contribution to the band. He is the one who suggested changing the group's name to the Beatles or the Beatles, and you'll hear a couple of different spellings. And he said this as a tribute to buddy Holly and the crickets. A group that both John Lennon and Paul McCartney. He had idolized for some time and clearly Stu felt the same over the nineteen sixties. Their name would change a few more times I to the silver beetles, always retaining that be ET spelling though which is important because that's sort of like the little bit of a play on words. It's gold, Jerry goal. And I wonder too, if it was a reference to there was a Zine, I guess, for lack of a better human called mercy beat that one of John Lennon's high school buddies started, and that's mercy m. e. r. s. y. b. e. t. and that was actually the publication that kind of covered a lot of the early Beatles exploits in that that skiffle movement or whatever. Yeah, could be, you know, a lot of times, well, at least Stewart's cliff himself will attribute that inspiration for the name to himself it. It's probably true in some way, but also, you know, people are fond of that kind of attribution they want. They were going through this name change. They said, okay, look, we, we just need a drummer and so they.

I mean, it's no surprise then that even in twenty eighteen with spoiler alert half of the Beatles dead fans infringed theories the like insist that the world has yet to hear the true story of what what are also known as the Fab Four. That's fab short for fabulous. So widow, this whole crazy tale of the Beatles begins way back in the mid fifties with the kid who is kind of a a popular cool guy. A hot head. Yeah. And he was really down with us whole skiffle seen, you know, the skiffle Santa's the skiffle craze. They give it give it to me. I always have a hard time remembering how one would because I think it's sort of a folk thing we talked about it before. Sure. Skiffle. Yeah. It's sort of like a blues based folk hybrid sort of take some Merican traditional music and turned it a little bit into more of a, I don't know a rock and roll kind of jug. Band has St. shy of full communiqu. American music though is popular at the times and John Lennon and co were particularly enamored of American prison songs from the south. So when John Lennon took some of his buddies and formed. A group called the quarrymen. They would play these prison songs from the American South during what was known as the skiffle craze. Lenin was around seventeen at this time, but he already knew another kid who has a couple years younger than him who really wanted to be cool a little bit more of a straight laced kid with stricter parents. He was fifteen years old. His name was Paul McCartney and cool guy. John Lennon came to Paul and said, hey, do want to play music with me even though you're only fifteen. So soon they began composing songs and play music together. We'll fast forward. You can hear entire volumes of this story its tail as old as time. And I think most Beatles fans have some inkling of the Hamburg days and like these, you the young lads from Liverpool, kind of like getting together and forming themselves rock and roll band. So then the next thing that happened was in February of nineteen fifty eight. Paul invited a buddy of his guy from around town George Harris. Jason just to come and check out the band, and then he actually auditioned and Lenin who you know the hothead bad boy of the crew who probably, you know, was a bit of the ringleader. It seems like it wasn't so sure about George because he was a little too young, even though he was only the same age as Paul, but George could shred. Yes. So the first addition that Harrison had Lennon says Lennon says woes is too. He's too young. He's pretty good, but he's too young. So George comes back young George comes back a second time, and according to the story, he played a league ITAR apart from song nail new on the top level of a double decker bus and John Lennon essentially, what? Okay. Yeah, fine. Forget it. He's fifteen. He's fifteen. He's also our league tars. Yep, Yep. And then eventually other members of the quarrymen set left. So they were in a weird situa-. Nation was just John Paul, George, and they were playing guitar pretty much when they could find a drummer and they said, we need, we need some more people, and that's when they started picking up some names that are going to be familiar to more hardcore Beatles fans, but maybe not familiar to people who only know the Fab Four. Yeah, they picked up a guy named stew are Stuart Sutcliffe who played a little base, you know, you always think of Paul is playing the bay. So what was it? Was Paul playing if Stu was sitting on the base where they three guitars, strong plus base? I believe so why so? Yeah..

"Theorist obsessed with the Paul McCartney concepts. But let's take a step back and start with the introduction, some facts clearly. Clearly you've heard of the Beatles. We don't make too many assumptions on this show, but if you are listening now when you're thinking this is a show about insects that we have given names to and misspelled in the title, right? And misspelled in the title we promise you. There is a method to the madness. The Beatles. You see be AT l. e. s. are one of if not the most famous bands in human history, not in modern history, not in recent history alone. All of it, human history and, hey, no ding on you. Anyone out there. If you never noticed until this moment, that Beatles is spelled funny because we actually had a conversation the break room with Paul, the walrus, and he mentioned that he. I just noticed the fact that it was spelled b. e. a. t. l. LES as opposed to the traditional spelling of the insect be e. e. l. e. s. will not just notice he said in college. Well, that's, you know, we're, we're about a spec right now in the in the grand scheme of photos. Language has like last week. So let's put some numbers behind that claim of being the most famous band in human history. According to UK newspaper, note the guardian. The Beatles have sold over one hundred seventy million units or albums. That's not counting the over one point. Six billion singles. They've sold closer to two billion now, and that's not counting the innumerable movies. Documentaries covers tributes action figures branded toys. The Hobo t- other merchandise, board games and so on associated with the bands are the what? A board games and so honest associated with the bay. Of course. Yes. They're definitely merge. I rich those Beatles and I bet you know what else about it doesn't include what's that streams because they only just pretty recently. I mean, not college recently. No more recently than college, just like a few years back years back attitude, Spotify, and that was a really big deal because the, you know, because the apple records and parlor phone and whatnot retained all the rights to that stuff with an iron fist. It was not on streaming services until they obviously struck up some kind of pretty lucrative deal with Spotify. Yeah, it was a huge deal with apple music a few years earlier. Right. That's right Ben. And it was certainly part of a big old ad push, you know, hey, the Beatles are on streaming side, be interested to see because now streaming numbers do factor into units, moved in some odd kind of formulation arcades a little weird or some arcane incantation for measuring success and also for any hardcore Beatles fans in the audience. Today. We do have to point out that it can be surprisingly difficult to get reliable, up-to-date statis-. Mystics for a lot of numbers, you will see other claims that say, no, the eagles of all bands are the most most lucrative or popular bestselling band. But you know, at though the eagles suck. You're, you're one of those? Yeah. Yeah. I'm a bit of a lebowski. You know what? Now I'm just being a criminal and the eagles do not. So I will tell you though. This is apropos something for I went through with a friend of mine. I said something like, what are the eagles have like five hits the guys like no, dude. It's like twenty, and it is almost exactly twenty giant giant hits at the eagles had. So whether you dig their music or not, they were highly influential at least in terms of the mainstream. I think it's the quality of the eagles that turns a lot of people off because you know, they're, they're famous in elevators across the planet. You'll hear some sort of version of, I'll tell you what nothing is quite the same level of depressing as being alone in a grocery store at three AM in hearing an instrumental music version of desperado playing while you're walking by the frozen food aisle. I will say I really do like the Los Lobos version of how of hotel California that's on the big lebowski soundtrack. Yeah. I mean, the covers are great, but you could say, I don't know. You could say the same thing about the Beatles..

Beatles conspiracy theory that there is the Paul McCartney died before its time and is now living life as a double some sort of d'appel that was hired to replace him, but we will get into that later which I appreciate the foreshadowing there. No, because that is one of the reasons that I wish met. We're here today way back in the early days of stuff. They don't want you to know. We did a video.
