I Guess It's Time to Move?
"I gave everything away. One friend took my Ottoman another took my copy of the collected works of Joe Brainard. And unloaded it all in handoffs in the park where I'd played the object between us, and then my friend would take it in their arms. My possessions became the conduit for our intimacy because I couldn't hug them goodbye and I couldn't throw a party. I was moving during Cova D-. It felt like a bonkers idea to move right now. Although it seems like a lot of people are doing it. In this time of enforced stillness, there is so much motion. I moved I moved I moved. Yeah. I did lose during covid from Washington DC. To New Orleans across the country from. And everything I've ever known to the House of my dreams to my parents House Boston to Aspen from Florida to Wisconsin from the area to a big college town in the Midwest I bought a house and moved into an during the pandemic. The. Best part of it was the houses on corona drive, but it's also just been strange per. Hard, to get furniture. Pretty alone. And pretty trapped for me. It's meant. Taking a lot of walks and bike rides often with no particular destination mine, it's been it's very difficult to meet new people and hard to connect to people. I, would see people that I didn't know and wonder what it was like to sort of know those people know the people of this place very much expecting to transform into some. What do we all have that fantasy as moving into a city where no one knows we are becoming the best version of ourselves and that's really not happening right now. The first night the taxi drop me off at my apartment I may as well have been in Toronto or Chicago. The summer heat was homogenising and the museums and theaters and restaurants that had meant New York to me were shuttered. There was nowhere to go beyond the strange new building. I called home. What was this city just beyond the confines of my apartment? I WANNA? Say the thing that really makes a city is the people. But that's the element that really broke my heart. I text a friend like Hey I'm in Brooklyn do you want to hang out? And then it turned out so many of them were moving away. So many of them. Yes. So what the hell away you live included in this mass exodus is my new CO worker at the cut Madeleine. I. I just sort of decided to leave. We're sitting on Mattie stoop in Brooklyn but this week. Mattie is moving to Austin Texas. I knew a couple of people in Austin it sounded really cool. I've never been but I never have been. But. I was like, why not seems cool. I could never take a risk like this. I feel like I was only able to move to New York because I'm from here and my family is still here I had a job here and I planned it all out although Mattias still working for the cut but she can just log onto slack from wherever I think it's cool to be like. To just start a new life and be like, what is it GonNa be like, who am I going to know? Where am I going to go? What's IT GONNA look like. Those uncertainties are very exciting to me. I mean, yeah I definitely felt that. Moving to my new city felt like having crush. But. It was kind of the crash where you don't really know someone and then suddenly you're imagining what your grandkids will look like. Definitely have an image of myself. An outdoorsy person. I'm going to have a car for the first time in my life, which is huge. So I'm like just constantly picturing myself driving around. It's like I can be a new person like you know in this new place that can be whoever I want to be. Although I've heard it said that everywhere you go. There you are. I don't really know how much one can actually change in a new place especially now. Like when I first moved here in the summer I kinda did all the same things? I. Did back when I lived in Oakland I, biked around ad in the park I took a covert test I cooked my dinners at home. I made this podcast in the closet. You can't completely escape your old self in some ways. It's just you in a different room, the of just like logging on. To slack and having everything be exactly the same when I'm in a new city in a new apartment like have gone through this huge change it's just gonNa be so weird.

Bill Barnwell on NFL Undefeated Teams + Monday Preview
"Bill Barnwell. It is late Sunday night almost midnight, which means it's time for you to make me smarter about the NFL. I'm going to try my best Baba Bill. Barnwell is a senior writer for ESPN host of the Bill Barnwell show and he's procrastinating his deadline to talk to me. So we just watched the saints and the packers on Sunday night football and the saints lost without. Their Star Receiver Michael Thomas. But that did not stop us from getting a whole bunch of touchdowns drew brees and Aaron Rodgers. Each threw for three a piece. But in the end, the packers won the saints lost and they've now lost New Orleans says back to back games for the first time since two thousand, seventeen bill I know you are writing a new piece about drew brees coming off of the two year deal that drew brees signed in the offseason and what we've now seen from him through these first three weeks what did you see in Sunday night's games he regressing improving? What do we have with bruise right now? Okay. So public drew brees definitely improving this is a better performance from him. Me brees was downright bad on Monday night in week two against the raiders before we got to garbage time and breeze didn't do deep very frequently until this game was out of hand but I think the concerns i. have read or have heard about arm strength or how deep is passes typically go they don't really get how reason this offense actually worked. Breezes sort of like. A singles hitter in baseball like Tony Gwynn lagging time where a post player with no range in basketball he's not going to suddenly start throwing deeply. He's Patrick Mahomes at forty one years old breeze has succeeded. Over the last three years while throwing the shortest paths in the League because he's posted the three best single season completion. In NFL history. Now. The good news for the Saints Good News For Saints Fans is that brees was much more accurate on Sunday night it was twenty, nine, thirty, six for two, hundred, eighty, eight yards a lot of that West Alvin Kamara who did a lot of the work but still going to end up thirty six is still better than where brees was. The bad news was just about everything else. The Saints Lost Starters Jared Cook and Andres P to injuries while devante. Adams List Aaron Rodgers threw for two hundred, eighty, three yards and those three touchdowns you mentioned. The saints focused on adding veterans with nicknames Emmanuel Sanders and balcony. Jenkins this off season. But. Sanders hasn't been able to stand out with ankle Thomas Injured and Jenkins has been picked apart in pass coverage including Mercedes Lewis touchdown on Sunday night the attorney for more accurate breeze that was a bright spot. But if the saints continue to struggle with injuries and get disappointing play from their stars, the Orleans is going to need this version of free stick around to have a chance to compete in the NFC. So the packers emerged three no, and that's where a lot of focus the rest of our conversation here on the teams that are now undefeated through three weeks of the NFL season. So bill, let's push deeper into the NFC here because the Chicago Bears Be Chicago bears are somehow three you know and they do it by beating the Falcons thirty to twenty six Chicago was trailing by sixteen head coach. Matt Nagy Decides to pull quarterback Mitch Trubisky in favor of the veteran nick foles mister big bleep nick himself who goes on to throw three touchdown passes in the fourth quarter. So I have a two part question for you now. Why are the Falcons physically incapable of holding onto a fourth quarter lead and? Secondly, where does this leave the whole quarterback situation in Chicago? Let me answer the second part of that question I. The bears are going to flail by the seat of their pants for the rest of the season I would assume that nick foles is going to start until he struggles and the bears trailing by two touchdowns in the fourth quarter a couple weeks from now, I would point Mitch Trubisky will come in and lead them to victory and the cycle will start the new. Unfortunately I don't have one simple takeaway for our poor friends and Atlantic. Is Different From what we saw in week to as. Much. As the defense was disappointing in this game, the offense really deserves a fair chunk of the blame for what happened scored a touchdown on the opening drive third quarter, and then basically tried to sit on their lead, Matt Ryan and company REPA- total three first downs on their next six is before the bears took the lead back and the only scored one field goal over that time after bisky intercession back running back Brian L. dropped an easy third down conversion which would have put the Falcons and field goal range. Then on the next drive kicker, young coup miss a forty eight yard field goal attempt. I know. I mean let's be fair. The Falcons defense was very bad. I'm not sure the Falcons are gonNA make any drastic changes on Monday morning, but Arthur blank can feel great about seeing this happen. On his seventy eighth birthday and. I believe I'm not mistaken not the only person celebrating birthday on Sunday. Having Birthday Pamela. Day Pablo. Yeah this is a hard way to discover that you share a birthday with the owner of the Atlanta Falcons Bill, which feels like you just cast a pox upon my house.
Aaron Rodgers vs. Drew Brees: Two QBs chase second Super Bowl ring
"NFL tonight. What a match up to future First Ballot Hall of Fame quarterback So the Green Bay Packers traveled to New Orleans to take on New Orleans Saints. And so it's Rodgers versus braised breeze versus Roger NHS. And to the first two weeks, Boy, Rogers has played lights out nearly perfect. Drew Brees has not. What does it portend for tonight's matchup? I think they're definitely is that element of just getting everybody same page everybody in sync and conflict with the guys that we have with the system that we have and everything that we're going to get back on track. We're up. I knew we were in a different place starting this year than last year, even though we don't have the offseason programming. You know, Today's and training camp was different. I really felt better. But my field in the offense and kind of what we on paper and soft about doing a lot of stuff has played itself out in the first two weeks. That's two quarterbacks breeze and Rogers. I don't think Breeze is going to be able to catch up with Aaron Rodgers tonight. If this turns into a track meet. I don't think the Saints could keep up now.

The Future Of The Affordable Care Act In A Supreme Court Without Ginsburg
"The fight over who will replace Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg will be fierce because supreme. Court decisions are so high stakes among the highest decisions on health care and abortion, and this morning we're GonNa talk about both starting with healthcare the quarterback in session on October fifth several state attorneys. General are challenging the affordable care act they want it thrown? Tens of millions of people would lose Medicaid benefits and more than one hundred million people would lose protections for pre existing conditions. So very high stakes duly rovner of Kaiser, health news is with us now. Good Morning Julie. Good morning where do things stand with the affordable care act? Well, things are tenuous Congressman 2017 failed to repeal and replace law but it did eliminate the penalty for not having insurance as part of its big year end tax bill just a couple of months. Later, a group of Republican attorneys general and governor sued they said that without the penalty, the law was now unconstitutional. That's because the law would they say was only upheld by the Supreme Court in two thousand twelve because the penalty was a constitutional exercise of Congress's taxing power. So no tax no affordable care act. Now, most legal experts didn't think a lot of this case including. Some scholars who had argued to strike crippled the law in cases that went to the court in two, thousand twelve, and again in two thousand fifteen. But a federal judge in Texas bought the argument in late twenty eighteen and in two thousand, nine, thousand, nine, hundred appeals court panel in New Orleans agreed although it's case back to the lower court to see if the whole really had to go democratic attorneys general who are now defending the law because the trump administration is not we're worried about leaving the helpful in limbo for as long as that would take, which could be years they asked the Supreme Court to step in right away the court. But. It didn't agree to decided before the election. Okay. So without Justice Ginsburg, what the possibilities for how the court might decide this case? Well, there are several if they're still eight justices, it could be afforded four tie that would mean that the lower court ruling would stand, but it might just apply in that circuit. So Texas Louisiana. Mississippi or the court could ask that the case be re argued when there's a ninth justice, the court could also decide that the. Individual Mandate the requirement for people to have insurance even though with no penalty is unconstitutional, but the rest of law might be able to survive It's worth mentioning that even limited decision could strike down protections for pre existing conditions a very popular because those are considered tightly linked to the mandate or the court could strike down the entire law which seems unlikely with only eight justices but you never know and possible of president trump manages to fill the seat right away. What happens if the Supreme Court does strike down the entire law? Well, the word most health experts I've talked about this is chaos not only could more than twenty million Americans immediately lose insurance coverage popular provision like letting young adults stay on their parent's health plan guaranteeing coverage of pre existing conditions expanded prescription drug, and preventive benefits for. Seniors. On Medicare would all be eliminated it would also impact healthcare providers, hospitals, and insurers and doctors who's the way they are bill in are paid is intimately tied in to the law. So the court hearing the case in November, but we likely won't get a decision until next year anyway. So if Joe Biden is elected, could he drop the case? No because it's actually not the administration's case it's the Republican attorneys general but a Democratic Congress under Democratic president could make the case mood they could put the penalty back at a dollar they could eliminate the rest of the language about the mandate. Or they could pass a bill saying the change in two thousand seventeen was not intended to impact the rest of the law. All of those however would be big fights on their own.

Khan Academy: Sal Khan
"Most of the products and services we've talked about on the show have been innovative or disruptive in some way. But some of them and you've heard me say this before have fundamentally changed the way we live I mean lift AIRBNB starbucks. Shop Affi-. wayfair. These brands have transformed the way that many of us shop and travel and work. But every now, and then a founder comes along that seems to want to do something even more ambitious, even more transformative like remember. Pat. Brown, he founded impossible foods to create meet out of plants meet. So meet like that even the most die-hard carnivores would want to eat it. Pat Wants to put a stop to meet production period because of the damage, it's doing to the planet and essentially and I don't think I'm overstating this. He set out from day one to change the world. But still. Pat Brown stands to make a lot of money from his company same with most of the founders who've been on this show and I don't think any of them are motivated primarily to make money but it is part of the story they make a product or offer service, sell it to you and me, and they also get rich perfectly fine. But what about someone who makes a product or offers a service that is equally transformational maybe even more so but makes it one hundred percent free To do that, you have to make personal sacrifices starting by earning a lot less money. which is just part of what makes Sal Khan. So incredibly remarkable. Over the past twelve years, he's built Khan Academy into a powerhouse, a massive online learning platform that offers free tutorials to anyone anywhere. And from the very beginning South sided, his academy would be a nonprofit that it should never be tempted to compromise on its values. But before he launched Khan, Academy Sal didn't anticipate any of this. He was just trying to help a younger cousin with her sixth grade math lessons at the time he was working for a hedge fund. But from those early days of doing one on one to toils sal gradually built a platform that offers hundreds of classes in dozens of languages. Nearly thirty million people use Khan Academy. Every month to learn math science arts even sat prep all four free and Khan. Academy has inspired the launch of many other online learning platforms, but many of them are for profit operations that charge money. But we'll get to all that moment first. Let's back up just a little bit sal Khan grew up in metairie Louisiana his mom was from India and his dad was from Bangladesh and the marriage ended when sal was pretty young. My parents. Had issues and so they separated when I was probably about eighteen months old two years old and then I had really never seen my father and I saw once four an evening when I was thirteen and then he passed away the next year so it was really might. mother who raised us as as a single mother. While was there a community of South Asian families in imagery? Growing up. Yeah my you know when my parents separated. We actually live with my young at the time they were in their twenty s, and so they all were kind of like father figures and almost like older siblings to to me as well and and a lot of ways they were not your stereotypical you know. Just come to the US study. Get a job save money kind of prudent immigrant story they were. They were much more embracing of New Orleans. Culture. And I would say they're the most new ORLEAN South Asians. You will ever find it in your life. I had a very colorful childhood. You know late night parties, people, singing, and dancing. For me it felt like a I remember my third birthday that my uncles got a belly dancer. I still remember Habiba you know So it was definitely a different type of childhood, but it was a in some ways a really rich one. So what did your mom do for a living? The first job that I remember her having she she was the person who takes the change out of the vending machine at the at the local hospital actually the hospital where I was born and she took me to work a couple of times 'cause she didn't have childcare and I thought at the time I remember watching her do that. I think it was like the coolest job on earth because you have the key that you can open up the vending machine and like quarters just pour out of it. So she did that for a little bit and then essentially was a cashier at a series of convenience stores is kind of doing you know one minimum wage job after another and then I was in high school she had remarried her my Stepdad at the time were able to. Kind of cobble together to get a a small convenience store in. Your book you write. Louisiana was as close to South Asia as the United States could get. It's spicy food. Giant cockroaches in the corrupt government which is both funny but somewhat true true. I guess right I mean. You grew up at a time when. Like David Duke was the. The representative in steel her. The part of Mary where we had our store, it was called seminole convenience store on Seminole Avenue, and it's called a parliamentary called on that was kind of the heart of David Dukes base. So to speak I remember in a right outside of our our store across the street was the largest David Duke for president signing I've ever seen and so it was A. You know the the folks who lived in the neighborhood who were frankly know Super David Duke supporters in some ways it was lucky. This is pre nine eleven They didn't really know what to make of my family at at the time We've had a few conversations I remember with people the store where they they openly told us that they were trying to decide whether we were white or the N. word to you know we were confusing them but you know growing up I was the only Brown kid in in the classroom. But I never felt in school at all like folks were in any way biased or racist against me. If anything I have to give the the school system to Jefferson parish school system, a lot of credit you know I think a lot of what I am today is because they gave me opportunities there were teachers that believed in me. I had a really good friend circle So so I have no. You, know I I don't feel like it was a a tough childhood.
Fantasy Football Forecast: One BIG THING you should know for every Week 2 matchup
"I sit out the way New Orleans versus Las Vegas raters. We saw New Orleans showcase really really solid, really great defensive performance against Tom. Brady and the buccaneers They were pretty on disappointed as a team, lot of penalties on their defensive side of the front. The saints rebel to take advantage of that. La Raiders played against the Carolina Panthers last week and gave up thirty points. It's very possible that New Orleans doesn't look as Resi as they did against a really solid defensive front in Tampa. Bay and they might have their way with a raiders team that is still kind of pretty young and trying to get their footing and all this stuff. They don't they had an injury to majority of their wide receivers in the last game. So Dan, Waller seems to be their only solid option. At the receiving side of things that might mean there in Waller's uptick in target's share and my means, he gets an ends on this year or this week maybe something good happens for him I'm buying all the stock now I'm Kamara right now for this game, this should be Alvin Kamara. KAMERA's two touchdown, a hundred yards from scrimmage plus game. This is this is the one I wouldn't see why would be any otherwise and to be quite frank. I think that a lot of players on seem to have a really big game and this would be a really fun game to see trae Kwan Smith. I'm going to bring them up again. This'll be a fun game Trey Smith. Look to be a solid. Relieving game just for brevity and sake of saving saints, fans of fantasy fans alike, some worry as to what the saints offense can look like without Michael Thomas Soaking up a lot of the defensive pressure. All right. So Fancy implications all over the place you know Josh Jacobs. This could be a really good test to see just how much they believe in Josh Jacobs as a pass catcher because I don't know how much he's going to be able to do in the run game considering New Orleans is when had and still does on one of the better run defenses in all the football. I think the best game. Pound for pound this week has to be the night game on NBC, where New England is playing against Seattle that they're going to be playing in Seattle New England the we have a kind of banged up cam and she says it's the there's no hamstring issue but. Of Most people are saying that he does, Kinda. Have a little bit of a hamstring thing going on and we'll see how that affects him with all read option stuff and what we saw from last Sunday's performance maybe we started to see cam throw a little bit more, and then we can really see just what this doing his offense really has to offer for them sure that bill will have them ready for whatever and we saw sea hawks offense that basically let Russell Wilson do what people have been asking. Them to let Russell. Wilson do for basically the majority of the back half of the dense. You know twenty seventeen was to let Russ Cook and Cook did Russell Wilson? Do He only missed four passes? He had A. Great amount of yardage great touchdown passes de que look. Nice at times he did have some drops of course, Tyler Lockett looked really good. Chris Carson looked amazing. In the past game. We had some really good screens run in for touchdowns. They got tight ends involved the plethora tight ends at the seahawks own and their defense was literally flying around all over the place. Now, there are a lot of garbage time touchdown stuff in that Falcons game that I'm not GonNa hold against the defense when it mattered. Jamal Adams and of course. Everybody else in that defense just looked phenomenal. They just looked physical. They looked like they were flying around and making plays they look very formidable as team very formidable. So. That is a game as the May have a lot of implemented implications on things so KEEP IN MIND I think one of the better secondaries in the League is New England's granted they played against. The, dolphins but they did not allow that many receptions or receiving yards at all for either receiver on the dolphins and Tyler Lockett, and care very athletic fast guys but. It's going to be tough. Is GonNa be a tough about we'll see what happens. They may have to change up the strategy of leading Russ Cook for this game in particular and work through the old tried and true run the ball and try to make something happen later on in the game. But for US Russell Wilson owners like myself I hope they just let him throw the ball a little bit more that'd be nice. That would be fun I think we'd all like to enjoy that. So moving on towards another game I think the Baltimore Game at four, twenty, five eastern standard time on CBS is going to be a good one, Baltimore versus Houston. This game can go I think Houston is a team that kid look Jacqueline Hyde and they've been jekyll and Hyde ever since the Shawn Watson is come on that team and. Not Sage. It's the Sean played bad last Thursday. But he definitely did not look comfortable one hundred percent of the time and you just was trying to make plays. His offensive line wasn't there fully stout at all and when it was time to just throw throw throw things Kinda got out of hand for Houston Houston can't be a team that gets to behind too quickly or else it is going to be nightmarish for the offensive line. And it's going to be a bad day for Shawn Watson even though he can make miracles happen at will while Samour's in perfect position to take on a team that showcase bad tackling display. So this is a team. So if this is the time where you want to be like, okay JK Dobbins, he didn't have that many targets but hey, he got two touchdowns in is the time to test out the JK Dobbins is going to be. The album? Kamara. To Marketing Rooms Mark Ingram. So we'll see what happens here Lamar he this seem doesn't tackle well, Lamar could have himself a anywhere closer to forty to fifty yards rushing easily against this team if he wants it, and of course, Mark Andrews is a guy who I would think would eat very well against the Houston team that allowed drivers Kelsey to get like five catches in the first half with ease marched up and down the field with ease Look to see how David Johnson looks in his second bout. David Johnson had a nice surprise of a Comeback Week one performance that a lot of people were speculating was possible and he delivered for the most part. So that was encouraging for many people to go ahead and see so I wouldn't. Put it past him to do it once again. That's really really against the I think that Brandin cooks is still a bit. So that would not be. Great for folks owners. And I would be looking at anybody who has. Willie snead Willie snead was all over the place last week and it was almost to a shocking amount of how much willie snead was dependent on and I said Willie snead. That was not who I meant to say I meant to say will fuller will fuller will around the field for the Texans last week and I would like to see him continue that stretch because that would be. Pretty awesome to be completely honest. I. Would like to see a will fuller healthy and showcasing that he is here to stay in this league and thus it would not make me feel nearly as bad for short.

In the nineteen hundreds went to Tulane University went to Honduras and made copies of them and they're sitting in New Orleans on at the military base. Okay. Fact very attacked.

Well, for anybody WHO's been to New Orleans they have that like has at European small town feel and the climate really tropical. You know if it's if you're going to be close to home, you might as well be host in temperature to but like I said that to keep a banana used to be housed in or their headquarters was in new, ORLEANS?

"Flooded with music cafes dance halls and even living rooms across the city were packed with people jazz and laughter from doorways and open windows the strong thrum of base and the Twang of Banjos. Mixed with buzzing cicadas in the night air but well venues everywhere. We're at capacity. The streets were empty. No one dared walked New Orleans cobblestone lanes alone instead they stayed inside seeking shelter among the crowds and the music there. They danced not out of joy but to ward off an evil spirit that stock the streets. They called him the tax man but he described himself as a fell demon from hottest hell and he'd written to the papers just days before with a proposition on Tuesday as he passed over the city. Any home with a jazz band in full swing would be spared his bloody axe. The city heated his request that night. The people of New Orleans danced for their lives. They spent our swinging and jiving to a band that never stopped. They danced until their feet ached and then they dance. Some more swing from exhaustion until the early morning hours hoping the jazz loving demon would be satisfied. When dawn broke they found Orleans had been spared.

"Spread going on at that time. That has some impact on what we're seeing now on. Top of that and really the more difficult is that you're gonNA fine like in every catastrophic event that the poor going to get hurt substantially more than those who don't have resources. I haven't seen the demographic numbers on. Who's coming to the onus? And who's not but as a general rule when any kind of massive you've been hits. It has an an outsized impact on those folks don't have access to food shelter healthcare etc etc. My guess is going to play that way. Unfortunately we have a large number of poor people. In the south of the United States of America I would expect to see the numbers worth worse in the poor areas of the country rather than the wealthy areas. Although this epidemic does not discriminate in terms of who touches we'll see about what the particular outcomes on the mentality rate. But we're all in this together and we're in the soup and the only way we're GONNA get out is together. I'm sure you must know people impacted by already. I feel like we all are in a position where we know. Let me say this. I don't know about anybody else on this call but I know a number of people who have succumbed to this illness already and we not only have had loss of life with people that we personally no but there are a number of different People that we know that are unemployed now. Their businesses are likely not to come back. The whole nature of the country is going to be challenged by. You know how how badly hurt in the short term. We are but as importantly it's going to say a lot about the character of our country. You see it magnifying right now. Those things that are really rough and tough about us are rougher and tougher and worse those things that glorious like people helping each other that never knew each other run into the fire. The kinds of sacrifices people are making that. Give you hope terrific. You know people's personalities being magnified the president's clearly I'm as well as all other elected officials so you know this is going to be a life. Changing Experience Katrina hit. The only thing people talked about a New Orleans was where were you before Katrina? And where will you after Katrina? Well that's going to be the true with the country on the corona bars for the foreseeable future and I don't know that we can really see too far ahead. What's in front of US right now? Is that the thing that most American people can do to help. Each other is to listen to you governors and you mayors and stay away from each other. That's how you can show your greatest love for each other and then let's lift each other up like we always do after this catastrophic craft event. But you be clear. This is going to be with a lot of pain. It's going to require a tremendous amount of sacrifice. It's GonNa hurt more than we think. It's going to take longer than we're being told. And when not nearly as prepared on the ground as the national voices claim that we are all that stuff that they're talking about in the White House just because you issue an order from that podium doesn't mean that it's on the ground and there is a huge distance between the lip and the cop as President Clinton used to say on those issues and the healthcare providers on the ground doctors and emergency rooms. I am talking to. They're saying they don't have enough stuff. They don't have enough equipment. They don't have enough beds. They don't have enough ventilators and what that means is without being too harsh about it is that they cannot treat people well and more people will succumb to the illness that needed to because of that.

First of all as someone who has lieutenant governor and mayor went through maybe fifteen to twenty massive emergencies from Katrina to Rita I- Gustaf national recession. Bp OIL SPILL. A number of different hurricanes mass shootings threatened attacks. One of the things that you do right away as soon as you get elected is think about how you organize yourself to be able to respond to things that you know are coming and then things that you cannot see so the first priority is to hire really competent people who not only can run the day to day operations of government but also have a mission of Security Homeland Security Public Safety Security Health Security people who can look up about what might be coming your way as opposed to looking down in front of you every day and mayors across America are shoulder the responsibility of making sure that those things are in place. Because as you're witnessing right now in this moment they are the front lines of every major epidemic or catastrophic event whether it's a pandemic whether it's a natural.

"In the Early Twentieth Century New Orleans was haunted by violent fiend called the cleaver for months this faceless criminal broke into the homes of Italian grocers and brutally attacked them while they slept but in one thousand. Nine hundred eleven. The Phantom cleaver committed his first actual kill the murder of twenty six year old. Joseph toffee sparked a highly publicized investigation to find the man responsible but months past and the trail went cold the cleaver had seemingly disappeared into thin air but seven years later in the spring of nineteen eighteen. He came back with a vengeance on. May Twenty Second Andrew. Mogia was drinking earlier that day. The twenty eight year old had received his draft card. He just been conscripted overseas to fight in World War. One scared out of his wits. The young man went to the local bar to forget his troubles in a pint around three. Am The next morning. Andrew stumbled home to the corner of Magnolia and upper line streets where he lived with his older brother. Joseph and his wife Catherine once inside. He fell into the bed and passed out around four thirty. A M still groggy from booze. Andrew woke up to an odd sound. It came from the other side of the shared wall that divided his room from Joseph and Catherine's bedroom listening closely. He realized what it was groaning. Even coming out of drunken stupor. Andrew knew something was deeply wrong but he couldn't bring himself to open his brother's bedroom door instead. He sprinted down the street to his older brother. Jacobs home and begged him to back to the house when they approached the back door. The two brothers stopped dead in their tracks. The door had been left ajar and one of its wooden panels had been removed someone had broken in hearts pouty. The brothers entered anyway and walk down the hall to Joseph and Catherine's Bedroom Jacob knocked softly but there was no answer. The two brothers steeled themselves and open the door inside the room. A heavy sent lingered damp and metallic and as soon as there is adjusted to the dark. The brothers saw a horrific tableau their sister in law Catherine laid on the floor in a pool of blood her throat slit so severely. She'd been nearly decapitated but Joseph miraculously was still alive. Andrew Jacob rush to the blood-soaked bed where their brother gasped for breath clinging to life. The brothers rang the police station and called for an ambulance. But by the time they derived Joseph Maggio had lost his struggle with death over the next few days. Detectives scoured the property for evidence in the bathtub. They found a murder weapon. A bloody axe that had belonged to Joseph Maggio. They also discovered a second weapon. A stainless steel straight razor found in the neighbors rose trellis at this. Detectives immediately turned their attention to the two module. Brothers Andrew Maggio was a barber by trade and the discovery of straight razor was especially incriminating and the fact that both men had waited so long before checking on Joseph and Katherine was deeply suspicious detectives so both. Maggio brothers were taken in for questioning and though they released Jacob fairly quickly they kept Andrew despite the many telltale signs. None of the detectives connected the macchia case to the brutal cleaver attacks seven years earlier this was due in large part to a change in the force just a few years prior New Orleans Chief of Detectives Jim Reynolds had been killed and John. Dantonio the Italian specialist had since retired their replacements. The no nonsense chief. Frank T MOONEY and Italian specialists. Arthur Morello had no professional knowledge of those cases but soon a mysterious discovery would make the connection for them shells to block away from the crime scene. Detectives FOUND A CRYPTIC MESSAGE. Chalked onto the sidewalk in a childish scrawl. It read Mrs Module is going to sit up tonight just like Mrs Tony. Investigators were baffled. They couldn't interpret what it possibly meant. Was it a message from the killer themselves? Or maybe a prank done in poor taste by some neighborhood delinquents but when local papers got a hold of the clue they revealed the answer. The name Mrs Tony was referring to the wife of Tony Sambre. That Italian Grocer who seven years before papers claimed had been one of the victims of the infamous cleaver after this realization New Orleans. Newspapers were rampant with speculation. Was it possible that the cleaver was back stalking the city streets after seven years of dormancy or was this killer merely an imitator a copycat according to criminologist race. Arete copycats are most often influenced by the media whether through journalism or entertainment by disseminating details of various crimes the media unwittingly inspires imitators however seret clarifies that exposure to these details does not cause a crime to occur but rather shapes its nature essentially the media does not serve as a motivation are catalyst but it does influence a pre existing criminals style in the case of the cleaver. It's possible that the Maggio's killer was actually a lesser known criminal inspired by his methods at the time the attacks had garnered a fair amount of coverage from local newspapers however still begs the question of why the imitator would have waited seven years to strike after all had had been nearly a decade since the cleaver made headlines so why now it's less likely that the Maggio's murders were the work of a copycat and they were of the cleaver himself as we now know. Serial killers will commonly act in cycles. These typically include an active period of murder as well as dormant phase in which they stop killing a stretch of time and some killers have longer dormancy periods than others but historian Miriam See Davis gives another possible explanation. That for the last seven years. The cleaver had been imprisoned most likely due to a less serious felony like robbery. And as the papers across the city speculated nearly a decade of pent up bloodlust had led the very same cleaver to the Maggio's doorstep but despite the rampant reporting connecting Maggio's murder to the clear of the Nineteen tends detectives on the case largely ignored this coverage for exactly what it was conjecture in their minds. The most plausible suspect was not some phantom killer but the man right in front of them twenty eight year. Old Andrew Macho police kept Andrew in custody as a material witness for the crime but at the time law enforcement was less likely to question their suspects than they were to torture them for days. Andrew was subjected to brutal interrogation in a bear sweltering room at police headquarters and though he begged they refuse to let him attend his brother and sister in law's funeral instead. He endured hours of detective screaming in his face accusing him of butchering his own family. They threw his brother's blood-soaked clothes at him and demanded that he confess but each day Andrew maintained his innocence and finally chief Mooney arranged for his release. Their interrogation yielded nothing. Andrew Mogia. Wasn't there man just like before the trail went cold then. Almost exactly a month. After Joseph and Katherine Maggio's murder on June twenty-sixth one thousand nine hundred nineteen another immigrant. Grocer was attacked with an axe but this time they were Polish early that morning during an already humid New Orleans. Summer delivery man. John czanka pulled his wagon up to Louis. Bessemer grocery store it was a routine stop and Bessemer. Polish immigrants was a loyal customer but that day the store was inexplicably closed confused. Czanka made his way around the store knocking at various doors and calling to anyone inside and finally sixty year old Louis Bessemer appeared. Bessemer looked awful exhausted and Pale but more alarmingly he was bleeding from a still fresh wound on his head but bessemer brushed off the injury telling Czanka that it was nothing just an accident. When CZANKA asked Bessemer Harriet his mistress was hurt. Bessemer was bizarrely nonchalant. He told Czanka he didn't know inside. Czanka phone twenty nine year old. Harriet low barely conscious collapsed on a bed soaked in Crimson. Her skull had been cracked open and dark. Blood matted her long dark hair as Sonko kneeled next to her. She could only whisper. Police were immediately to the scene where they noticed telltale signs that link the crime to the Maggio case the attack had occurred early in the morning. Nothing had been taken from the home and the murder weapon and old. Rusted acts was left at the scene. The axes dull blade had most likely saved their lives. However a series of other bizarre details gave chief Mooney doubts that this was actually a different attacker than the Maggio's killer. There was forced entry. Neighbors reported hearing no screaming or signs of a struggle and Harriet centuries were much more severe than Bessemer Bessemer was left with nothing but a long gash above his eye dealt from a single blow. Harriet however had been struck on her arms and chest multiple times and sustained to blows to the head which split.
"new orleans" Discussed on The Adventures of Memento Mori
"I started this episode like every other episode. Find a topic and then find experts about the topic but to answer the question. Why does New Orleans embraced death as a culture? I didn't really know who the experts were. So I took some advice from a friend who had lived there. Just show up and go with the flow. You'll never find your answer with the plan. What is the danger of the cemetery's partly? Why do they need saved? Well they they continue to get older. The climate here the weather Natural disasters vandalism theft and apathy. But I didn't need a place to start my name's Amanda Walker. I'm the executive director of save our cemeteries so I found a nonprofit that was trying to save the local cemeteries and gave tours. My Name's Adam Stevenson. I'm a volunteer tour. Guide for Samer Cemeteries. Our job is to get people back into the cemeteries to appreciate them. I have one question before we go on as really nothing to do with cemeteries. What is the proper way to say? I know where you're going with. That New Orleans Orleans New Orleans so fond of. She's the only other person to pronounce the city of New Orleans. New Orleans ever ever ever say Nolan's people will laugh at you. Well that saved me from some embarrassment because I really wanted to say Nolan's as often as I possibly could another piece of advice that Amanda shared with me is that nobody that actually is from their calls. It the big easy because as I'm about to learn New Orleans ain't that big and it sure as hell ain't that easy. Misery is a word that I use on to all the time and I've actually referred to New Orleans specifically before the American war is being misery. Central I cannot think from Western point of view place worse to live two hundred years ago. Here imagine being in France and coming here might rather be dead. I mean it's hot. It's humid there. Hurricanes and snakes diseases. It's just the worst so you had to figure how. How are you gonNA live here? If you're like me. Junior high school American history is a bit of a blur so as a refresh. If France thought Louisiana was misery central. Why did they still colonize it? The French came here for a couple of reasons. The first reason is that the French claimed Louisiana Lasalle claim Louisiana. I think sixteen eighty two. I don't remember the exact aide who cares. The exact date was Louisiana. Was everything drained by the Mississippi River and its tributaries understand that Europe? That was their thing. They're moving to the new world and claiming territories. They wanted goal. They wanted silver. They wanted what happened and during the new world territory land grab. The city of New Orleans was built because of its strategic location just before it joins the Gulf of Mexico the Mississippi River snakes into a crescent moon providing the only place to build the port but the French never really cared about Louisiana. I mean it didn't create because there were no gold mines. There was no Pearl Fisheries. Whatever said he's kind of sat there and eventually it's more complicated and I'm telling right now but then they gave the Spanish. The Spanish remploy forbid gave it to the French again and then eventually Americans got it and the Americans received Louisiana because they didn't want Louisiana that one of the port of New Orleans at the time half of American goods imported and exported came through the port of New Orleans this included the African slave trade. The savior was found in seventeen eighteen. The first enslaved Africans arrived here in seventeen nineteen and I mentioned this on tour before that there are those who say that New Orleans. The French city. It's Spanish city. It's a Caribbean city. It's whatever it's also an African setting everything that you come down here to see that his New Orleans you could go to Sheboygan you come here buddy come here. Because the culture in every aspect of our culture has an influence to it. Traditionally European colonizers buried their dead and then tried to do the same here but there was a problem nor liens is a swamp so if you bury the body it would soon just pop right. Back up to the surface and because cremation was against Catholic law. They started burying the bodies in the levy on the high ground of the river but then there was an even bigger problem. They were digging a lot of holes in the only thing separating the city from the Mississippi River so eventually that's where the above ground barrels came from. They evolved there originally sort of like just right above the ground. And then if you look at you know go through Latin America the Caribbean you will see above ground tombs. The Latin Spanish thing but also parallel says in Paris. The most famous cemetery on this planet these in the Western world you have above ground tunes. There was a concept. Change in idea about a cemetery obscure came. It changed from being a graveyard and someplace where there was. Death in horror to someplace was almost more pastoral. It was almost an attempt to bring a little bit of heaven or the peace down to Earth. And so you go through PAL Hsieh's in Paris and you see these beautiful sculptures. It's beautiful and that's what they tried to do here. And so when he walked. These above ground cemeteries. It's a function of all these things. Functional local topography yes. It's a function of Latin American adaptations to local culture but French fashion as well. But what's unique is that is a fusion of all these different cultures coming together. Which of course is really honestly a metaphor for the city of new ones in general so I think you said that seventy percent or seventy five percents of Saint Louis unwanted or abandoned abandoned. Is that the one where Nicholas Cage has its period. What's for the abandoned stuff? What is the process? So say if you're not a rich celebrity say you are richer liberty. What can you still how? How does one go about a tomb that has not seen a burial in fifty years or more the archdiocese for example? We'll say that's abandoned. And then they can renovate it not touch it. But it is a lengthy process and a lot of people like I said don't have deeds and so it's not one person's in perpetuity you can be with a whole generation of your family in one two. That's the whole point. The whole point is somebody who holds deed owns the cemetery the tomb and then that gets passed down so the whole point is be used generation by generation by generation Maria Vo. There's there eighty nine documented burials in her tomb and some of them are slave former slaves. That had nowhere to go infants. That died there. People that are black white brown all in that one tomb and they'd had nowhere to go so she was kind enough to to allow that so It doesn't have to necessarily be your family. If you buy a tomb there remains have to be moved elsewhere. You can't just shove grandma with someone else's Graham on after you you buy it. It's it's it's complicated so there is no I am not in Cheboygan. Mineta of this is just confirmation bias because a short death is it's it's death is overt in the sense of. It is a part of this city. I think you're hesitant to answer. I'm hesitant answered in the sense that I don't think that most New Orleans embraced death and I think maybe it's it's sort of an ineffable question I and that's almost. I don't want to feel pretentious by saying I'll explain this. Let me explain why we embrace death. We don't embrace step. Maybe I was wrong. Maybe New Orleans doesn't embrace death in its culture. Maybe I just think that because I spent the last eight hours in a cemetery after the fabulous tour Amanda and Adam recommended that I had determined and find a gentleman by name of Sylvester Francis if I wanted to know about the real culture of New Orleans. He's just the person to tell me after this palos fellow provocateurs that believe death as topic worth talking about. We need your help spreading the would be slightly odd yet.

It's it's <hes> about a third of the city writ large. It's it's an interesting and diverse place but i think it's a place that people don't write about and don't often talk about when they talk about what it means to be from new orleans and is it high income low income.

"And we're back. Thank you sponsor. Yes. Thank you. I would guess that for a lot of you listeners when you hear New Orleans, you think drinking whether that's mardi gras related or in general French quarter very late night shenanigans. Yes. It's one of the main reasons behind its tourist draw the fact that you can walk around with drinks on the streets or as they're called go. We got to speak with Elizabeth Pearce founder of drink and learn which is a walking tour that looks into the history of cocktails, and cocktail culture. She also has a podcast also called drink and learned that you should all-czech out. Here's Elizabeth you cannot understand Orleans unless you understand it's drinking. You're not required to participate in it. But at least need to know what's going on. So I love asleep from the very early stage. We were drinking for the sick and the children, but. But it's because we are in a swamp. Life was hard the government ignoring you things are going to crappy. Then like, you you drink for this is what people do and people continue to do in in difficult situations. But anyway, so all of these like facets contribute to an identity, and that one of the pillars of that identity is about. Cutting loose and drinking is an integral part of that drinking is different in New Orleans, or at least it is among New Orleans. Oh, yeah. It's not something you do to get drunk, or at least most of the time. Generally. It's not that's amateur. Our children are exposed to responsible drinking at a young age to the idea of ago Cup or a before dinner drink. We have a whole episode on New Orleans cocktails and drinking culture plan. Oh, yeah. But in the meantime, here's Elizabeth again describing the local attitude towards drinking. It's very civilized, and it isn't hasty, and if you have a drink in your hand, and this is true for coffee too. But. Do you have the a beer and all kind of slow you down makes you pause kind of look around like, oh, I had noticed that house in my neighborhood before that balcony, stop and listen to a musician. It it alters the way that noon interact in public space, and the other thing that I think it does this is stretching it a little bit. But like go with me. Okay. When you were in a restaurant. We all roll at a table. And if someone came in joined us, we would look scans at them. That is weird because this is like our area. And it's like we planted a flag. But if you're in a bar people sitting next to you, and they will talk to you. And you do not think there is anything amiss with that. Now, you may not talk back to them are they may be creepy or whatever. But the the interaction is publicly sanctioned, and it often leads to some really delightful encounters unexpected, you know, you meet people in a bar. You don't meet in restaurant same way until I believe that the walking with the drink carry the spirit of the bar, which that it makes you just a little more open to the chance encounter the possibility. Yeah. To engage with the world around him. It's difficult to capture in audio in like a forty minute to an hour episode everything that New Orleans is the experience of being there. But it is heavy and joyous. It's the culmination of all of these cultures and all of this history super producer Dylan summed up his first experience this way in studio when we got back from our trip. I've never been anywhere. At least on that scale makes you come through New York, and you can see all these different cultures coming together. But at that scale, I'd never been anywhere that had such strong influence from such different cultures that was coming together. And that they were so determined to preserve and to promote and just the way that things come together where you can eat like four different places in the world in one bowl. It's amazing. Yeah. This has says French influenced the says Caribbean influences as talion influence this has like the Creole Cajun influence. It's just I loved it. I I love being able to experience that through food because I don't know if I've ever been anywhere where I ate a dish and experienced so much of the world in one dish. So that was really really cool. And Dickie Brennan told this story of a.

"My first time in New Orleans while my best friend and travel, buddy. Cried over her ex boyfriend. I was like I'm awkwardly eat this meat and try to console you. He's also the author of several books. Three time James beard best chef of the south semifinalists and finalists. And yes top chef contestant. He offered up the song version of these events. Mid interview eighteen fourteen we took a little trip along with Colonel Jackson down the mighty Mississippi took a little bacon, and we took a little beans fought the bloody British in New Orleans. Oh, it was great. Did you put in this cultural note about the war of eighteen twelve just to have him sing about it not to have him sing? But that was definitely a plus. Yeah. Also, interesting side note by the time the battle of New Orleans took place the treaty to end the war of eighteen twelve had already been signed. It just took a while to get word out to New Orleans by this point New Orleans was a rich city in the mid nineteenth century, you could find the largest concentration of millionaires between New Orleans and Baton Rouge due to things like the slave trade and sugar plantations. The civil war changed this deeply enor- liens went from an area of wealth to one of poverty and racial tension. A free people of color and man's paid slaves entered local politics, and then we're forced out in eighteen seventies. As the Ku Klux Klan rose to power to cover the labor shortage plantation owners brought immigrants from the Philippines, China and Sicily, and eventually a lot of Italians came over due to political strife in that whole area. The Chinese mostly kept their traditional foods. And for decades, they were distinct to Chinatown areas and restaurants in New Orleans, but. The Filipinos and talion had a pretty deep influence on Creole cuisine Creole cuisine being the cuisine of the city. We spoke with Amy sins. The founder of Lang LA a culinary entertainment company as she describes it a traveling food show named after the effort mentioned Madame lingua New Orleans is I think one of the few places where when you go to get a Snickers bar or your reese's. Peanut butter cups at the grocery store, right next to it is a little bag of dried shrimp, and that is thanks to the Manila men who taught us that you can take the sweet lake shrimp, dry them in the sun. If you'd like to eat them as a snack you can. But if you are making a seafood Gumbo, and you're stock just needs a little more fortification. You throw the shrimp in. That's you know, the Filipino community introduced us to that. But they don't get full credit for. Why are seafood Gumbo can be? So delicious around the eighteen fifties is when the Sicilian started to move in and mass and they entered -duced New Orleans to the canned tomato they can to mate a single handedly transformed every New Orleans dish. So it kind of turned into Cajun was rustic country Creole was fancy city. And then it was like does it have tomato. Or does it not have a tomato? We'll talk more about the interplay between Cajun and Creole in a bit. But so at the same time the postwar period produced a lot of art, museums, electrified street, cards and music. Yes. Jazz by the late nineteenth century, New Orleans was developing jazz, as we know it we spoke with Eric cypher a historian with the aforementioned New Orleans historic collective about. Well about a lot of jazz history. But of particular interest might be the history of the iconic second line. If you didn't know second lines are parades descended from jazz funerals nowadays, they're popular is something you might do for your wedding or like a Tuesday. Yes, exactly. It is a celebration event that invites participation you and super producer Dylan were invited to join a second line while we were there. Oh, yeah. One was passing bias, and it almost swept us up. It was a great experience for me because I was on the phone trying to speak to someone that I learned New Orleans is not a great city for trying to hear someone on the phone. And this participation.

"That quote that you heard at the top was from Dr Jessica Harris whose ager analyst podcast her in the author of several books exploring African and Caribbean food ways that quote, the south is north from here fundamentally changed how we thought about New Orleans. She wasn't the only one who said it either. We heard it echoed from Dr Howard Conyers who is both a barbecue pit master and an actual rocket scientist. Also, New Orleans is very much a different city from the rest of the south isn't really a different city from the rest of United States. The international. City.

"Back to New Orleans where we had a targeting call. Against middle. Tennessee Zach Dobson I think he has been thrown out of the game. You're correct, sir. I didn't quite catch the announcement by referee Adams Savoy, but David explain this because it's targeting call and he wasn't a helmet to helmet hit. But he was a stuck his helmet in the mid section of the punt returner Clinton duck was getting ready to make the play on the Pont reception. He wasn't even able to get over towards the ball, which is a few yards to his right. Maybe four or five yards. But before we had an opportunity to go over make a play. Dobson got down the field, the true freshman. He's had a rough night. He's had some tough plays. But very high impact place in night. But he leads with his helmet, right? Into the abdomen of Clinton. Doc. That's a really dangerous play because ducks looking up in the air for the football and leading with your helmet with the crowd of the helmet. You don't have to go helmet-to-helmet or up in the neck area. If you're leading with the crown a helmet a special. With the defensive player that's grounds for targeting and it being disqualified and Dobson's already been led into the tunnel. All right. The penalty pushes the ball up to the thirty six yard line. First and ten for the mountaineers who already lead thirty one six. And that was a twenty four six game at the half. They took the opening third quarter kickoff marched down and scored middle. Tennessee got a torch midfield had pontoon that we just had that place announced the first down in ten. Here's a running play out to the left and trying to some extra yards out of it. It's number six Cameron people's for Stanley seen him tonight to freshman from Louisville Alabama picks up about let's see up to the thirty seven. So we got a yard second down and nine coming up. You're just joining us. This game was tilting blue raiders way early couple of mistakes turnovers on apps states first couple of possessions, but middle Tennessee could not capitalize good field position. Here we go people's again, turning right corner breaks the tackle these to the fifty far sideline forty breaks. Another tackle at the thirty down the sideline. Ten five touchdowns. Cameron people's takes it to the house. How about sixty three yards? However there is a flag on the play factors a flag. There's two of them down one near the goal line.
