Mike finds them underwater. And it looks like they're doing something like the dive master gear exchange. Now they take off and mike goes in hot pursuit for some reason. Johnny turns around rips. Mike mask off. Mike has defined it. Put it on and clear it. Just in time to find larry running out of air. Mike grabs larry and buddy breathes with him to the surface now. Mike is really mad. Schools over another five minutes and all their problems would have been over. They'd be dead his advice. Don't play games with the ocean. The brothers gibb tell mike. They were just practicing. What was in the book. Mike gave them. Mike doesn't really believe them but they take off and as the boat depart mike find frank's wallet on the pier. Apparently he lost it. Doing to fight with mike. He's not frank brennan but frank bronson the plot thickens. Wonder if my god is three hundred dollars the scene now shifts to fisherman's warf and mike is getting the low down on the bronson brothers. They haven't been abalone fishermen for years and there's a fourth brother mark now mike looking for their boat but he spots it on often abandoned peer in oakland and decides that he needs to scuba dive out to see what's up. The board is empty. But before mike can get on board the three bronze brothers show up his only option. Hide under the boat when the engine starts. He grabbed a dangling. Bow-line and hitches a ride. They're up to no good. The pressure is tremendous as he hangs on an fears of the blades of the prop behind them. But the boat finally slows then stops. And larry johnny jump in on scuba and have an extra set a gear. What's going on. Mike surfaces and sees their right off alcatraz. It's two against one. Nothing new for mike nelson. He follows them down to some rocks underwater where they deploy a surface buoy. Then we see a convict one zero nine eight six. That would be mark bronson. He died into the water now. Mike gets it as he sees the convict getting into a wet suit. And putting on the gear. Mike shoots a flare off to signal. The guards on alcatraz hoping it works. Mike is now fully rigged mask wetsuit. Tank regulator weight belt and knife and their high tailing it off against a strong title current. But larry turns and he spots mike. He's going to fight a rearguard action while johnny and markswoman. It's a knife fight. And it's a good one larry's tough clever and slippery but might get behind. Him cuts his air hose and brings him to the surface. And that's where we see. Mike's knife into larry's first stage. The flare did its job. And there's a patrol boat from the island coming on the scene that's one bronson in the bag on the boat. They followed the brothers bubbles and when they catch up mike dies back in lights off a flare and pokes it at the brothers and another massive underwater fight breaks out mike pulls off marks masks shuts air off and shoves him johnny he then puts johnny in a stranglehold and brings the two brothers to the surface. Mike has thwarted escape attempt. Larry says on the boat. It was a pretty good scheme. Yeah mike doesn't think so. Wow this first. Episode new year was jam packed with some great underwater fight scenes. I guess they really wanted to get everyone excited about the show again. And you most definitely will recognize johnny bronson. That was leonard. Nimoy yes mr spock. He shows up again. So that's the alcatraz story from nineteen fifty-nine the first episode of season. Two of seon. Hope you enjoyed it. I'll be back again soon with another installment of seon. It's still alive here on scuba shack radio.

Now, who I used to Be sad about that. I love Dublin Bay when my whole but one of the women have never played music or written songs before they were recorded by award winning record producer Ian Brennan and his wife, Maria Elena, Omaha's a deli. But Elena herself has a personal connection to witch hunting, which will get into in a moment. But first Marlena joins us from her home in Italy. Welcome. Oh, thank you so much. Thank you for having me. Marlena. How did these women and they are primarily women Get to these camps? Well, these women are a poor there as early they have been kicked out off their land by younger relatives who are very attracted to buy their land. And that land is all. They own a S. O. This women are very vulnerable. You know, they suffer from physical mental in the Caesar, such as Alzheimer's agility. Misshapen limbs, blindness and they are completely exploited that they're stripped off their dignity, their turned into a monster there literally stripped off their own land. So these women are accused of being which is what is being a witch mean in West Africa.

Going After What You Want in Life Without Shame
"I feel like what we have to do here. I is talk a little bit about shame. So a lot of what i've learned about. Shame comes from bernie brown which is probably no surprise. So i feel like. I need to shout out here at the top of the episode because she researches shame like that's been her main life's work and of course she's written a lot of books about it and ted talks about it and all that stuff. But she's like the foremost researcher chaim. And so this is where i've learned a lot about. What is what it means and what we can take away from ant so her work has informed a lot of thoughts and reflections here. So let's turn to brennan for a comprehensive definition of shame. So this is what she says. I defined shame as the intensely painful feeling or experience of believing that we are flawed and therefore unworthy of love and belonging. Something we've experienced done or failed to do makes us unworthy of connection. I don't believe shame as helpful or productive. In fact i think shame is much more likely to be the source of destructive hurtful behavior than the solution or the cure i think the fear of disconnection can make dangerous another interesting quote from brennan. Shame corrodes the very part of us. That believes we are capable of change. The reason this particular hind stuck out to me so much is because if we don't believe we can change. We're not going to go after what we want right. That's if our belief in our mind is that. I'm not capable of change or i'm not worthy of change than we never take that step forward to actually go after what we want in life and part of living unapologetically as this line says that we're talking about today. Unapologetic is going after what you want in life and so when we believe that we will accept where we are without question because we don't think we're worth whatever comes on the other of change for us. We believe that what we have is. Maybe even what we deserve. It also makes me think of that quote from one of my favorite books of all time the perks of being a wallflower. That book has meant so much to me and my life and there's a quote from the book that when i read it as a teenager it certainly meant something to me then but it does not even come close to the understanding. I have of this quote now in my life and that cool is we accept the love. We think we deserve and as a teenager. I was like okay. Yeah like i get it. I'm like kind of a surface level. But now i've had a lot more experience both with accepting love from other people and for accepting love for myself and i have found that to be so incredibly true. We accept the love. We think we deserve. We accept a lot in a lot of ways. We accept the life. We think we deserve right. And i don't wanna like gloss over privilege and access and and having money like the things that that can do for us in the world's because there is certainly certainly for a lot of us relations. Why maybe the exact life we want. It's not just because we we don't think we deserve it right. There's a lot more to it. The not but i think it is hopeful lens to look at some of this stuff through like i simply accepting what i think i deserve here. Do i think the. I deserve less in this situation and so i have found it very enlightening to look at in this in this area of like accepting a life that i think are or am i accepting lake the call for something bigger or something different and so matching like my sense of worth my sense of deserving ness to what i want so yeah but yet we were talking about shame. I got off her but i do. Think that year quote from brunei. About like shame corroding the part of us. That believes we're capable of change I think that's really important to look out along with her definition so now that we've established like what we're talking about when we say shame. Let's think about the first part of the cement going after what you want in life. So let's give this some context. Okay i have had conversations with people where i will ask them what they truly want in their lives and they can't answer me and by the way that's not because they don't want anything bites. I believe it's because they have learned that the are allowed to want things or that they're not worthy of wanting things that they should just accept things the way they are because what they want is impossible for them and again. This is not something. That's like a super conscious thoughts on the surface. It's not like i asked the question. What do you actually want in life. And they're like While what i want is impossible Because they don't believe him worthy of it right not the actual thoughts going through. Someone's had but it's kind of these underlying beliefs that we have about ourselves Sue ya and and it's really interesting. Because i think on the surface to a lot of us think i know what i want. I totally know what i want like. I just wanna be happy or ida. Slake wanna i don't move to a bigger house or like i just want to be out of debt right but like my question is what are you truly. Want in your life lake. Where do you truly see yourself and what. How does that correspond to like the values that you have your core values right and that's when the conversation gets gets more interesting because it's kind of off of that surface level and more into like the depths of lake. How do you actually want to live. And that question can be challenging to

He is prouder of what the speech he made. During dave chapelle Mark twain award. Which is a high honour. Chapelle is considered as good as there's ever been doing this and this guy has had an unusual angle and perspective on a comedy legend in real time while also turning into a great comedian as mike said a comedian's comedian.

"So i want to make sure that i get the messaging right on this because you have to understand. We are super untethered. This thing that we've done with you four you next to you. This pirate ship thing is a little weird because there's a lot of business stuff going on around us and i'm not an entrepreneur in any way and there are things that i have to make time for that are that isn't just us putting around on the radio Laughing and stuff. Because i've got a lot of responsibilities here and it's a start up business we're starting and for example today. We wanted to bring you an interview with john skipper. That we thought would be really good content for the day that you guys wouldn't have even missed the show but because of an assortment of things and scheduling and because we're spending a lot of plates around here we're going to have to bring you that as a series very soon telling you what this business is why it is. You're with us on the pirate ship. Everything else before we get to that though there are any number of things that have to be handled daily and we can't put out what you know. Is the radio. Show the normal output of podcast stuff every single day during this phase. because i'm talking to sponsors and we're negotiating and there's a whole bunch of stuff that we want to tell you about transparently doing this with you but it's like unbelievably moving fast around here right now and so. I know that you might be disappointed today. You're not getting the traditional radio. Show i wish we could give you the traditional radio show every day because we love doing the traditional radio show but we needed to take today off. Today was not a day that we could work because we have to handle a whole bunch of things so that on thursday we can come back and tell you where we are and keep putting out this content. People have taken notice okay. They've taken notice that the show sounds fresher. They've taken notice that we're doing something creative and fun. They've taken notice that the audience has jumped off this cliff with us so today. We're not giving you the traditional radio show but we did do a south beach session with neal brennan and he's become a friend of the show and i remember years ago as you see our growth. During this period mike ryan has been a bit of a talent curator around here. Mike ryan took me a long time ago. miami improv. there must have been thirty people there. It must've been the beginning of neal. Brennan's comedy career mike. He couldn't have been. I mean he'd already written at that point but in terms of stand up comedy which is the hardest thing. The hardest thing is stand up comedy. It's not writing funny. It's not there is nothing harder than stand up comedy. How deep was he in his career. When you took me and you told me you. Dan you need to see this guy. Oh he's very deep but he was early in his career torturing as one of the The fathers of chapelle show he. And dave chapelle brought that creative seminal moment in television to the masses and neal. Brennan was a behind the scenes guys producer. I really enjoyed this amazing resume that he had wasn't really well known to the masses and he started becoming a big deal on the stand up circuit. he'd always been a stand up guy no pun intended. But i wanted to make sure you saw neal brennan. Because many people didn't really understand the brilliance that was his brilliance..

But i was granted that access so given that access only after i finished And do you have pet interests. Like imagine if i were you and i had spent thirty years in this job i would have been tracking some things towards the end that my own curiosity would really want access. I would want to be able to check up on some things that i cared deeply about or spent a lot of time trying to help resolve just also your own. Curiosity would want to check in on some things. Wouldn't it well. I am very curious number things that worked to throughout the course of my career. But i don't believe that former officials should be allowed to access classified material in order to advance their own. Maybe personal interests financial interests or whatever there are a number of individuals informed directors who retained clearances because to serve on certain boards of directors or companies that do classified work it requires individuals to have current security clearances tops clearances. I never pursued any of those types of physicians role. So i didn't need the clearances for that purpose. But i can see why former presidents vice presidents would need if i had a real reason and i think the reason was in the national interest to gain access to something for example if i was invited to go overseas and speak to foreign officials on my former counterparts and i needed to have a better sense of what it is that they might be doing or up to then. I would make that request and i believe the cia. Then would grant the access as appropriate.

I had with former colleagues but tall former directors who wrote memoirs were given prompt and full access to their classified files when they were director so that they could in fact a write their memoirs with some degree of not just accuracy but also a depth of of coverage. Yeah now what conventionally happens. When people retire doesn't ex-president still have access to like classified information or briefings or are they let go of that. Well they can request a briefing at any time a former president. And they don't get you know the daily presidents daily brief with when they're office but a lot of former presidents and i have briefed for presidents. Who requested a briefing on this matter. Worth going gonna be traveling overseas or or meeting with foreign officials a retain their clearances for the rest of their life a former directors of cia also retain their clearances. It's for the benefit of a government because it allows their successors to contact their predecessors and have conversations about. Would you think about this person. Or why do we do it that way. Or can you give me a little bit of context in terms of this capability or whatever. So it facilitates those discussions. So even though mr trump or the white house announced to great fanfare in the summer of twenty eighteen that he was revoking. Mike clearances. Because i had the audacity to speak out against him by clearances were never revoked because there was no legal basis to do so however he did send a written directive to the cia intelligence community forbidding anyone from discussing classified information with me which is why than the cia was unable to share my classified files. When i was writing my memoir so it's probably safe to assume that you're access to that will resume here shortly. Then yeah. I would think that. biden immigration. Many of the people. I know who i think. Are going to be joining. Mr president-elect biden and i know joe biden very well having worked with him for eight years. I would presume that they're not going to continue a lot of the activities in actions and decisions of mr trump so i would only go into review my classified files for purpose. I was granted some access when i was going to be interviewed by the department of justice. For you know the investigations. That to mr bar turning general hasn't Donald trump's request. But i was granted that access so given that access only after i finished.

"I am certain that such an. Audacious. Operation Occurring inside a Saudi diplomatic mission would have required the direct authorization of Saudi Arabia's top leadership. It wasn't King Solomon it was M bs, and then you write the subsequent failures of the trump administration to hold the Saudi government to account for MB SS role in the murder of Kashogi was one of the most egregious examples of unprincipled leadership. I ever witnessed in the US government what does holding the Saudis accountable for the murder of Kashogi mean exactly that it is homes speaking. Of. These you can do you can you can freeze any non essential lack interaction with the Saudi government. You can cut back curtail or cease suspend a various military assistance, security training assistance, other types of bilateral engagements. You can stop abruptly the support being provided to the Saudis as they continue their military adventure that bloody military adventure in Yemen there are very demonstrable things that they could do, but trump has not done any. Of that and they can make sure that they're not going to deal with NBS. They're gonNA say, okay we're going to deal with others and really make him a pariah in many respects the bilateral relationship. So there are things that they can do, but they don't, and when trump was asked about this by Stephanopoulos trump's responsible as money. That's the reason why he didn't in fact, take these bold steps against Saudi Arabia. So. Your reaction to with the president has said that he's planning this big party of Mideast leaders that will include NBS at s outragous. If he's going to allow Muhammed, salon to come to this country and have an defeated in hosted by a president states after what his own intelligence community the. As reportedly said about MBA. Responsibility for the murder and dismemberment of a US residents person I just find that very telling a donald trump. Obviously, you mentioned before that you were the first. US. Official to speak publicly about the drone program is that right? To to confirm that yes were used in lethal strikes against artists and obviously you were intimately involved in overseeing that program both as. Homeland Security Advisor in the White House, and then as director, it became a somewhat controversial program largely because of the perception fair or not a lot of civilians were killed. You dispute the numbers of a lot of human rights organizations, but just a couple of questions one is in the president's second president. Obama's second term. you lead a process informally called the playbook which was an effort to basically establish some rules and guidelines to. Oversee that program and part of it was making it more transparent I. think there was also a plan to perhaps transfer the as program to the Defense Department, which did not happen how successful was that effort based on what you all were able to achieve while you were still in office and what the trump administration has has done since then we don't hear. About drones very much anymore but that doesn't mean that the program is still up and running and I just I'm just curious what you think happened to that that playbook initiative that you lead. When we came into office in two, we inherited the program, the drum program that has very capable remotely piloted aircraft launching missiles against targets with great precision and but we didn't. Have a book or framework or process that we were given. We had to develop that over time and it was in the second half of the first term when we started to put together this framework that had very specific criteria and we wanted to codify so that we would have something that is repeatable and that would give us the type of confidence that. We had that we would take these strikes only when necessary and do it with the greatest of care precision and judiciousness, and so it was in twenty thirteen when that's a framework was finalized and it governs How we of viewed these these terrorists strikes that we felt obliged to take when there was no recourse to stop these terrorists from carrying out their attacks. And so I do believe that the the estimate that we had at joy the end of the Obama station that there were between sixty four, hundred, sixteen civilian deaths was as good a review as we could conduct time in terms of number of unfortunate and tragic civilian deaths that occur during the Obama Administration. And it is ironic that with. The Obama Administration with all of his transparency about what it was doing with drones and terrorist. Strikes mistakes that we were roundly criticized by so many quarters for that while the trump administration which has. Put the shroud back over these programs and has not been transparent at all. You don't hear a keep in the media these days about the lack of transparency. So it does seem a bit ironic and I don't know what has happened although I haven't heard of that the standards the criteria have been relaxed for the conduct of of these strikes by the counterterrorism components that carry them out what about the decision making process Because you put together a fairly rigorous process with these civics meetings and the case of military strikes I think they all had to be approved by the President I'm not sure about the strikes but lots of lawyers involved. It sometimes took many weeks before decision was made did President Trump move that decision authority to the battlefield has that process changed substantially as far as you know, the mistaking me for a official, the trump administration. In the nation all strikes had to be approved by the president and was CIA strikes as well with Dan. I think you're mistaken when you start trying to assert that the CIA has such a program to my knowledge. There's never been any type of governments acknowledgement that the CIA has such a program. So I'm talking about you as government counterterrorism, terrorism strikes, and all of them a needed to be approved by the president, and they would the approvals we'd go down through the chain of command and approvals frequently would have a time limit on them and it would be based on against certain conditions that had been met. And also the governments of the countries where they strikes would take place also needed to concur in those strikes every just to be clear, you're not disputing that the CIA conducted drone strikes you're saying nothing now officially classified declassified I'm just saying that you know what? What you make reference to I cannot think of any. US government's acknowledgement of any type of CIA lethal. program. Maybe. You picked up but I. I think I think we did pick it. Reacts Disagree..

I know it's embarrassing thirty-four-year-old started a youtube channel but fuck it. So so similarly to you, I'm always kind of Johnny to see where I can get to my mental health like I've been through extreme anxiety, extreme depression, PTSD etc. I think you and I are probably two of the most people that I have a friend do a similar to me as you are and you and I struggle and if you if is it okay if I say this but we struggle with feelings of all the time Oh yes. Yes. So that's something that we. That you may not have the which is. I have a penis. Bomb. No would may not have which is. I'm also. Sensitive. And not. You Win James would say it's all ego based, but I would say it's I'm really sensitive. Like I really am like up sensitive little. Baby. Like everything bothers me. But this is in pisses you off hurts my feelings. Feelings a lot of things hurt my feelings that you. There's no way that hurt feelings. Because I generally speaking synthesize it into anger. So quickly, you wouldn't know it I was hurt. For a second. But yeah everything like any snob any slight any look any like real like I I'm not. One of these people who nothing bothers me May Look like nothing by twitter very nothing bothers me and sort of a bit thinking. It's funny when other people get so bothered by stuff. Well I think that most people I don't when things are when people are actually bothered by I think there's things that are worth getting bothered by and then I think there are mostly it's just the. Internet. I mean, that's like. The only way to get traction on on twitter is to be. Provocative or like little. Favorites. I don't use twitter. To create outrage. No but that's the that's that's hey, you're gaming the algorithm. That is how that's how it works. Yeah. So when they go, there is an outrage on twitter. Yeah. That's where that's that's traffic. There's booties clapping at the Strip club. That's one. That's that's what happens that the airplanes are taken off at the airport I feel quite. Jealous that you that your feelings get hurt. Kemalist. Doesn't happen to me and I think some people think of it as Oh i. Am so tough and I'm so brave and don't get bothered by the people saying things about me publicly or even privately, but it really doesn't make a dent and I think that's because I'm because my damage makes me so desensitized I'm genuinely I don't. This is why I never wear. It's like a badge of honor that I'm uninterested in other people's opinions of me. I'm just a genuine. You don't give a fuck and I would like to see that it's a strength especially in my choice of career. And but having said that I bet james can hurt your feelings. James can hurt my feelings not snow. He doesn't hurt my feelings as much sometimes in the past may angry. Not Yes that's A. Remember specific time. Okay Great It's been awhile. It's been awhile but James, isn't so much hurt my feelings I don't get my i. think my feelings got so hurt as a child that there's like I've had so many withdrawals. Failings, there are no deposits though I am bankrupt. It doesn't really happen. But okay. So aside from that, though a you romantic person. In the technical classical way. Yes Oh. Yes. Yes. The short answer is. I think I. cried through. Watching marriage story. Okay and during the trial, why did you cry during marriage story I'll tell you. Okay. During. The trial I literally thought I don't think I could do this I I would be so crushed by an ex. Wife. Using a lawyer. To make me seem. Awful for. To get custody of a thing that she knows I. Love. A Kid. Or you know and then there's the whole thing like I've had guys tell me that they're y guys that are successful TV people telling that their wives said when they got divorced that they came up with plots that are just not true. Doesn't so not true Mike from. Lives came up with plots for sitcoms that they were. Up like, no. That episode was before I met like just crazy credit that I would just like. But. The thing of having a lawyer slam me to make me a bad father would would just about break me and then. The letter thing. That letter at the beginning of it and when they're talking about all the things grains. I've been love three times and it was amazing. And The when those ended. They all. Really hurt my feelings. They really. It was very emotional about it like it was like one of them I was like crying all the time for like a month. Me Neil brand. Crying L. Time now but I like I was demolished by. So. I think I'm I want I want I would like to. Be in a long term romantic relationship I. Just at this point, I would agnostic about it because I'm like I don't see much proof of a I'm not jealous very many relationships year in one of them. Thank. It's not what James. which was you? Know like you're in one of them but this is not a long list, five, five couples maybe and. And but I I sometimes I think that many women are really poorly matched for relationships. And the other thing I will say about it is the the the thing in relationships that. I don't think a lot of attention which is the ways you break your own heart. Like. Well. Can't can't do it. Like you think that your those people that is healthy enough to be in a relationship and you can work things out and you can, and despite your best efforts with someone that you palpably love, you cannot do it. and. That's your fault. Also. I. Think if you're not sorted out, you already assess who is the correct person for you. I'm yeah. Yeah. Either friend cool. Brett Goldstein and he talks about the fact that you know his he's an easy single. He can't seem to find anyone and he gets endlessly frustrated by this because assistant who's younger than him is happily married with two kids as a perfect fairy tale life and the Oeste, why is it that you think I'm still single and she said well, I think it's because you always go for the.

"I'll speculate to use john brennan word because i didn't ask john brennan woody was thinking but i think he was thinking a lot more about donald trump than he was about vladimir putin if he'd stopped to think about what ladimir putin was trying to do he might have held fire and not said what he said because i think he was really doing putin's bidding by making those comments and causing of our foreign liaison partners and other others to to doubt the president's trustworthiness i think lewis explain that e okay well let me i just say that i think i think that perhaps john brennan was so blinded by his antipathy towards the president that i in my view at least he went a bit a bit too far with the criticism and took it to a level that he shouldn't have as as a former director see i think look freedom of speech is something that we all value in this country but i think for if i could be so presumptuous as to say that a retired director of c i a and russians like to say there's no such thing as a former intelligence officer you know that that's just doesn't exist for them that you almost wanna take the hippocratic oath of doing no harm to our national security when you're exercising your freedom you're you basically it sounds reading between the lines of what you're saying is that brennan launches is cool i mean he's that he's got an emotional side to hand got the better of cam because of his dislike or sympathy to use your word of trump.
