It's like you wanna know how people experience it. And if you what you're experiencing is normal. And i think gen especially has been very very instrumental. She's become more of a fran than i ever imagined. We kind of incredibly. And i. I love my i mean key does so mike for us and just played very important role for me in this process.

Theodore Roosevelt's daughter. However someone in the stands witness lors getting into the car and he quickly confessed that it was all just a joke. Very, funny I cheated my way to a gold medal.

"The problems in Saint. Louis started when the Olympics were first awarded to Paraphrase Dante from the movie clerks. The Olympics weren't even supposed to be here. The original city which was awarded the Olympics wasn't Saint Louis, but Chicago, however in one, thousand, nine, hundred three Saint Louis scheduled the Louisiana Purchase Exposition, which was supposed to commemorate the one hundredth anniversary of the Lewis and Clark expedition. However they can pull it off in time, so it was delayed until nineteen four. They didn't want another international event taking place at the same time in the United States let alone a neighboring state, so they threatened to host their own sporting event during the world's fair to compete with the Olympics at the time. The Olympics wasn't that big deal. It is today, so the threat was real and could have affected the long term prospects of the event peer decor baton, the founder of the Modern Olympics eventually relented and awarded the Olympics to Saint Louis. The games were scheduled over A. A five month period from July, to November of one, thousand, nine, hundred four, which coincided with the world's fair. The games were also held during the Russia Japanese war, which limited the number of countries attending it also was located in the middle of the United States at a time when there was no air travel, athletes coming from Europe, had to have crossed the Atlantic by ship, and then work their way overland to Saint, Louis, as a result, the vast majority of the competitors were from North America. The Ninety six gold medals awarded at the Game eighty-six were awarded to the United States Canada or Cuba. The games were so lopsided in favor of the United Stated almost shouldn't be counted as a real Olympics. The marathon took place on August. Thirtieth the temperature at the start of the race was thirty three degrees, Celsius or ninety two degrees Fahrenheit that in and of itself was pretty bad, but the near one hundred percent humidity at the time made it even worse. The heat index, which is what the temperature feels like with the humidity, reached fifty seven degrees, Celsius or one hundred and thirty five degrees, Fahrenheit. It was one of the hottest races ever run in history. To put this in perspective, the ideal temperature to run a marathon is considered to be around forty nine degrees Fahrenheit or ten degree Celsius modern race. Organizers are advised to postpone a race. If temperatures get above seventy Fahrenheit or twenty one degrees, Celsius this is why all the major marathons in the world are almost always run in the spring or the fall. The reason why cool temperatures are preferred is because of the amount of heat. Someone will produce when running, even putting aside the humidity heat index. There's a specific heat index for runners which takes into consideration how hot it would feel for a runner. The next doesn't even calculated if it's over eighty five Fahrenheit and thirty Celsius and sixty percent humidity, because it's just too dangerous to run. And summary You do not want to run when it is hot and on this day it was really hot..

That showed up to the Olympics. Had never run in any race at all much less a marathon but came all the way from Greece to give it a whirl. They didn't finish if seventeen of the forty. Two athletes. Who started didn't finish the race. Okay I'd say those are the seventeen winners. Get mauled by a pack of wild dogs or poisoned or projectile shot. On those are wins the hand and then the Russian team.

"Someone wrote this before. They read the rest of the essay didn't they? Yeah spoiler alert spoiler alert there for sure using glasses literally biking them down in the bucket of road runners to run over so the first guy who would cross the finish line that day was fred. Lors jogged over the finish line and just under three hours although he was not actually the winner Fred qualified for the Olympic Marathon. Because he ran really well a five mile qualifying race Oh okay there's a better system for testing twenty six point two five four four and three quarter unnerved football fifty yards. I'm an Olympic shot so this guy was not experienced runner. He trained mostly at night after work because he spent his days at his job as a bricklayer. So we had very little time for running or training. He got off to a good start in the first mile but he soon fell behind by a mile nine key like many of the other runners developed cramps and diarrhea from the well water at mile. Six so fred was exhausted. He flagged down a passing car. Part hitched a ride. He wrote of that car. He's like what I'm surprised. More people didn't think of this running gesture thought of this holiday fire. Favorite thing is that he's in this car and he's waving at crowds and actually waiting other runners as he drives by them then the car because it's nine hundred ninety four the car fuck and broke down so we can grandma last few miles. The crowd see some cross the finish line. They go fucking nuts cheering. An American wandering American one Theodore Roosevelt's daughter Alice very nearly put the wreath and the gold medal around his neck when a crowd realized that. This fucking guy just cheated. And they turned on him stripping of his victory in the moment. Okay probably when the cabdriver ran up being like look that guy. He's shit all over my car everywhere so coming in second place but really actually first place was. Thomas Hicks so at the ten mile mark the race. Desperate and thirsty. Thomas Hicks began begging for water. He begged to guys for water. They refused him but they saw their chance to test out their theories on sports performance on the sky. Why is this guy who his enemies just here? Just some random people who are like. I have a theory. Rather give this guy anything to drink. The two men sponged out his mouth with distilled water. What yeah that's that's at Mile? Ten four miles. Later a mile fourteen Hicks impromptu training crew fed him strict nine and egg whites still no water. They did not give him any water. At this point with the strychnine poison poison it very small amounts. It's a stimulant so they were actually trying to dope. The athlete would actually be the first incidents of Olympic doping it didn't help because as Iran picks became Ashen and limp and to hallucinate so his trainers naturally tried some more strict nine egg whites but this time they let him wash it down with some French brandy as they called it. Nineteen four breakfast so then they doused his body in warm water buckets so mean race official Charles. Lucas said this affects quote. Hicks was running mechanically like a well oiled piece of machinery. His eyes were dull lustre. `less the ashen color of his face and skin had his arms appeared as weights. Well tied down. He could scarcely lift his legs while his knees were almost stiff. Okay that guy has weird machines first of all. That's him but again what the hell was happening here. These guys were like all right. We would boss. We tried the egg whites brandy and strychnine thing did not create a super soldier. Like were doing what you say the yolks. Yeah okay. We'll try the yolks. We'll call you back in a second. We'll take down play the horrors of the Holocaust. Allow your sentences sterling too often man. That's fair that's a fair criticism. Meat but like Mandalay makes a lot more sense in. The context of the people just randomly did experiments on each other to this right. This is my third essay where a guy was just like. I got a thing. I fucking insane so hallucinating. Poison dehydrated unbearably hot and that was soaking. Wet Hicks continued on. When he got to the last mile he began crying. And begging those around for somebody e hallucinations. He believed he was still twenty miles from the end of the course even though he was nearly finished. How did they find that out also began begging his trainers to lie down? He asked them for tea but I just gave him more brandy instead. Nice able to continue running. The two men picked him up and carried him. The last bit over the finish line was unable to understand that he was not running so he continue to move his legs running. Perry that's awesome even as these guys carry this guy over the finish line. It's a four doctors working on Hicks of our before. He was well enough to leave the event to go to the hospital. Hicks lost eight hounds running in that race after the disqualification even those two guys carried him over the Finish Line. He was still declared. The winner is a more about the friends. We made along the way spoon that helped me carry me across all right so then some guy named Albert came in second but no one remembers anything funny about him so who cares story depravity the hell that our nation was one hundred years ago. There's just a guy named Al. That had a nice run that day. You WanNA theme. So the next man was Felix Carbajal Felix was a postman from Cuba who financed his trip to America. By running around the island asking for donations and after crowd sourcing his Olympic Bid Felix arrived in America in New Orleans and they promptly gambled all of his money on dice and lost. Just all gone penniless. He walked and hitchhiked from New Orleans to St. Louis any arrived in St Louis to the fairgrounds the very afternoon of the race itself. So a word here on Felix's race where imagine of five foot tall skinny? Cuban man always good just that image. Now imagine that man wearing men's dress slacks dress shoes a white dress shirt and a jaunty. Captain It'd done go ahead good all right so this outfit was all Felix had to wear for the race just like the regular early. Nineteen hundred men's uniform of wool pants and a dress shirt that you've seen a thousand times so Felix is borrowed. Some guy's knife turned his pants and a cut off and he ran that whole fucking race white shirt flapping in the breeze. Dress shoes pounding the task Michael Douglas carrying a machine gun. Weird totally fucking unfazed by anything. I guess Felix stopped and chatted with every crowd of well-wishers along the way a lot of times he was begging them food water as he went as Iran Felix grew hungry since he had not eaten at that point when he started the race in forty hours housing orchard. He stopped at ate some apples. He found lying on the ground nearby but the apples were rotten and so felix became ill and he lay down to take a nap for an hour. What's just napped. You've kind of. Just how many Olympics? But I'm GONNA sleep through some of this. He woke up from the NAP. He cheerfully resumed the race. Despite getting the shit's taking a nap. Okay fasting for forty hours before the race and wearing dress shoes he came in fourth. Or maybe third. It's kind of hard to say my second. Kalugin who okay. But was there completely different attitude about shitting in one thousand nine hundred four Jews like everybody's ally somehow in this story and nobody said kidding all over the place. As far as I can tell America. A few other runners of note. William Garcia was runner from California. He only made it a few miles into the race When he collapsed he was discovered by other runners lying unconscious in the middle of the road. Dust from the road had coated his ASAF ICUS and ripped his stomach lining Jesus and he lay on the course bleeding internally until he was found he nearly died. She's man. This course plotted out by Himalayan Sherpa. No you go right at the guy. Face-down bleeding on the pavement at the three guys that died shitting in the Bush smell. You'll know I two black African athletes to compete in the Olympics. Were also in this race so two men from South Africa Len Tau and Jan Mushy Yanni. Which does not sound. African competed though. Neither of them ran this race wearing shoes so they both ran barefoot important to remind everybody that like three of the four runners that we've discussed so far had large portions of the race devoted to St pooping. So these two guys were in fact even supposed to be in the Olympics. They weren't supposed to compete here. They were brought over to be part of the one of the fares living exhibits. The men decided they wanted to run the race and so they just snuck over race in the Olympics. One of these guys came in ninth place. The other guy came in twelfth place. Though to be fair the guy who came in twelve was chased a mile off the course buy a pack of wild dogs. You can't make this up okay. But in in defense of those dogs they were like so we here. You're part of one of the exhibits here. Let's see how you feel like you know knowing that if they catch you put you back in the zoo as a real good motivation.

"Javelin throwing. I only javelin throwing because it doesn't sound that bad but when you look at the pictures of it they dress these guys in fucking loincloths. Uh-huh Ya all these white dudes and suits are staring at the savages. Throwing spears around. I have no idea how this would have been judged but also there was any competitive event called ethnic dancing. I if any of that sounds racist guys. That's just because you're paying attention. Yeah that does sound racist. Also sounds like Philadelphia when the Eagles won the Super Bowl in two thousand eighteen idiots literally climbing greased poles javelins. 's loincloths Moynihan. Actually a good deal of white people trying to do ethnic dancing around. That's and that's real. The police literally preapproved the Globe and People's to all the greased poles people hurt themselves and deserve it that nine reserves. I was in Philadelphia. Word hub sent them a loop for hoping he made a big K Y. Yeah Yeah exactly. Yeah I I do. I love that when Tom Describes the horribly rancid bigotry of the early twentieth century. Your first thought was yeah. That reminds me of Philadelphia Right. So also what point. For the world's fair there was supposed to be a bullfight really in an arena in St Louis. Really an arena. Purpose built just for this bullfight and that might have been. Okay I guess except for the bullfighting. Except that right before the bullfight itself someone remember that. Saint Louis actually had a law against bullfighting. At which point they cancelled the bullfight. Just before was scheduled to begin with a full arena of paying customers. The crowd totally fucking unimpressed by the sudden realization that they were standing in a custom built arena made for something which was presumably illegal before they lay that first brick so they naturally demanded a refund for their bullfighting tickets. Just as naturally since this was Saint Louis. They were told to go fuck themselves. So the crowd. Burt the arena to the ground. So Saint Louis all right all right. Can I have my money back now? I started giant. Fuck and fire okay. It's nine hundred four. How come back and go wrong. Thankfully nobody was hurt. And that's because all of this happened on a Sunday which is a day which I guess is earmarked for Church and bullfights but not only you know they say this whole thing mixed this exhibit with the Philippine Exploitation. One in front of the crowd and have made a bulldog problem. The only problem is that after one. Time chasing that red cloth the bulldogs out of breath and nearly dying because dogs are unethical. Everyone has a time traveling gypsy. Gods for a pet seesaw. A number of new foods were also introduced to the world or popularized during the world's fair. It's been widely claimed that the waffle cone was an invention of the ferrets. Total Bullshit not true but Dr Pepper was actually. I in flew on the world here okay. For the day. It was healthy compared to most other doctors. And IT'S AMAZING. A number of other foods such as hamburgers hot dogs and ICE T. We're actually also popularized at the fair but the only reason I included this paragraph. Here's because by far the most iconic was daughter of slaves any Fisher who whipped up some of her soon to be famous quote beaten biscuits. Oh my God. Daughter of slaves was selling beaten biscuits at the fair. Also there was a full-size elephant made entirely out of all mints. And you can see a picture of that thing. It's insane that's nuts actually comes actually not. I think now that we know where he's at. The Hague should definitely prosecute Dr Pepper for war crimes. They could find pneumatic Dr Peppers the best. Your Hitler you talk. Yeah love the taste of dot matrix printer on the Fritz. You Dr Dr Pepper. Right now as you want but like twenty six other flavors they combine. They asked the guy who invented Dr Pepper. What it tastes like. He said I wanted to case like a soda. Fountain Smells Guy who invented it could come up with does then. There was the Olympics. So America's first Olympics actually was here and the marathon which. I promise that I will get to right. Yeah no because there's so many failed to get to the words in their title of the episode right away. It's a cardinal center. They should be mercilessly for it forever. I get it. I get it allergies though. When it's you but I I wanna just leave you with this quote from the Smithsonian Quote. There were moments of surprising. Genuine triumph gymnast. George is earned six medals including three gold. Despite his wooden leg hot sodium amide do not elaborate on at all. That is out there. No elaboration I want it to be rhythmic gymnastics and he uses the legs they do with the ball. Yes just pole vaulting. But just the poll. Just go go gadget leg well. We reached time where Tom would normally be making fun and offer not getting to the topic yet. So let's take a break for Apropos. Nothing what do you say everybody Right kids now remember if we get separated. We're on our own forever. We Know Dad. That's right now. What shall we see dialing will see the world of the future? Are you have an exhibit on me? Voting what will they think of next? I want to go to the racism. Ten Tech Race is all right. I'll write little. Timmy is a nickel. Go Buy yourself a human being a nickel. I'll get to now if you'll excuse me I'm GONNA go check out. The Olympics Nikki. Jumps is fastest MANOHLA. How FAST IS HE About a third as good as at twenty twenty highschool semi-finalists. This is the most fun we'll ever have before we die. Nineteen thousand four. Aren't you glad you were born now? So we left off talking about the exploitation of native peoples and a huge national spectacle. I mean the chiefs did just win the Super Bowl. What's always is new anyway. Tom Bill Kansas. All right see so so. Let's talk. Marathon I guess when you and I think marathon we probably think of a twenty six point two mile race there. Probably some other details there but that's generally a good starting place now so for the auto box free thinkers done in Saint Louis. The Saint Louis Olympic Marathon was just over twenty four and a half miles. Oh has laid out from start to finish ISH. Ish GotTA close the best way to tell you the stories to tell you about the first several people who cross the finish line in order of that crossing though not without first describing the code but they couldn't get an exact just distance. Yeah right I. I hope they did. Was they realized they were short. The last second and then there was a gym teacher make. Any new wind sprints back and forth across the finish line up just two more times around the track and touched. The lines touched a lot. Pick up the eraser all right so the day of the race was hot. I mean it was like really fucking like like late August in Saint Louis fucking predictably hot. The heat index the day of the race was one hundred thirty five degrees. Okay let's in nineteen thousand four. They were doing that in ninety four. That's just like a fat guy. Going outside and sweating for a few seconds being like one thirty five. Come on Frank. Be Scientific hold this mercury. I say a self described by a race official as quote the most difficult a human being was ever asked to run over metal. Think they were wrong. The roads were covered in several inches of lung. Choking dust there were seven hills on the course ranging from one hundred to three hundred feet. Ecorse wasn't roped off in any way for the runners nor the roads maintained or repaired so large rocks and stones were strewn across primitive dirt streets. The runners had to dodge crosstown traffic horses audible. Pedestrians trains trolley cars. Yeah okay all right but so far this is what is what does every morning but with Haley. He's right there. So the race organizers also and I am not making this up in an attempt to discover how well the human body performs and severely dehydrated hersely only put into water stations along the entire clerk at mile six and one at mile twelve. No other place to get. That is one tough race okay. Let's put the sniper towers here and here all right. That sounds good. Where should we release the Tigers? I sixteen now. No that's the spectator. Circular saw blade toss. It can't do it. They're always at sixteen. Okay let's fourteen. Then that one's the hand grenade hot potato portion of the mile eight. Oh my later work. Good okay the water stations. I look to Mile Six mile twelve. Oh take it easy there that many well. That does seem like a lot okay. I'll tell you what let's use to stations but we could poison every other glass..

Eat My dust Yucel. That will make more sense later. It's like okay okay. All right okay Tom. Why are you telling us a sports story? Yeah I mean it does seem somewhat out of character. I'll tell you why because this story has almost nothing to do with sports. It contains a stunning amount of personal misfortune. Incompetence there's some poisoning some seat. There's a level of absurdity in this story that will I think? Leave all of us agreeing that in the end probably nobody one Someone's been watching. Love is Blah and I was so sure you were going to the Democratic primary. That'd be both so. This all began. When Saint Louis of places decided to host. The world's fair. The idea was to commemorate the Centennial of the Louisiana purchase released. That was the like. Say It out loud theme. The real idea here is to showcase American imperialism which I fucking love because when I think about America swinging some big showy Dick Around. I can all agree. The natural place to start is in America's sweaty taint for sure. Yeah the arches. Just the half of the Cochrane you can see so before we get to the marathon itself. I want to tell you a little bit about the world's nerd address skins. Just do this. I said this world's fair was a really big damn deal. It ran from April through December of one thousand nine hundred four. It costs fifteen million dollars. That's about a half a billion dollars in today's money to put this thing on. It took five years to build the nearly fifteen hundred buildings. It's sprawled across twelve hundred acres when it was all said and done. Twenty million people would visit during the eight months at the fair was open. And that was about a quarter of the entire. Us population at the time. Wow we can barely get those numbers. With presidential elections are so twenty million people have now impossibly flocked to Saint. Louis I know from personal experience or better be something pretty Goddamn once-in-a-lifetime amazing to get anybody to purposely arrive in St Louis Fair. This would not disappoint now. I promise we'll get to the marathon but a little context about the sorts of entertainments that were on display for revelers gawkers. That should set the table for this. Context doesn't matter. Tom Nuances dumb. Just tell us about the fucking sports. Let's go ahead. I will what I won't do is bore you with the now laughable marvels of what was all basically an early one thousand nine hundred ce show Mostly because it might distract all the racism and animal cruelty For those who are alive showboat coney island you remember that. At this point America had a pension for human zoos and one thousand four world. Fair was no exception. The largest at this fair was colloquially known as dog town dog town featured I shit you not one thousand actual real live except for the two that died and transport. Please be dogs police dogs. Please be dogs about dogs. Genuine imported Filipinos fuck. How bad is it when your job as you root for like the thing that died on the way over to be dog place so these living exhibits were arranged? According to their level of civilization a mock the primitive God modern and the exhibit grounds were made to mirror their tribal homelands. The most popular of these exhibits was the tribe and the Philippines would on occasion for ceremonial purposes. Eat Dog so naturally once. These people are on exhibit. They were fed dog on a daily basis to titillate the crowd and the crowd was titillated. Fair goers were so amazed by the savages. This is their word not mine Eating dogs that fair goers began bringing dogs to the fair to be eaten for the amusement of the crowd. This is actually done so much. Police had to patrol the surrounding area to avoid people's pets being stolen and offered up for snacks sake. Just a bunch of cats hide pipering dogs to the fair just run and no more dogs. Signs spelled wrong. Quick Reminder. There's like a one in four chance. Your GRANDPA was in that crowd. Kinda makes election make a lot more sensitive? About how the fuck all do you think our audience from? Tito or twenty eight hundred fifty right somebody by this mana calculator. Alright among the wholesome entertainment on offer were also the anthropology day events so for the amusement of spectators savages again their word not mine from various international human zoo villages amidst the fair were called upon to compete in front of crowds in events such as Greece whole climbing.

"The title had chapter i think that you have is it's better than the heart i was born with i think was a is a quote from from one of the patients would link grades what waste coal caen by the woman did i interviewed he had a total artificial heart in and she really did have mixed feelings when the biological heart came available and dan you know the the artificial hearts because there and they tend to be made by uh made of polymers and medals and they're non rejected bowl so you don't have to be on anti rejection immune suppression rugs like you do with regular heart transplant where which are very dangerous i mean living with immunosuppressant drugs is not a good uh solution in the long run because he put yourself in risk of having all kinds of deadly infections and damn it doesn't work very well it has a it has a major health impact on eu um so yeah i mean i think that this is this is something that has a huge id vantage as far as not being reject the ball does crazy in a i could totally see like the the chinese olympic team eventually stepping up to the olympic marathon each of them with a brand new extremely high cardiac output based artificial heart totally see some like that happening of hopewell hopefully the of the chinese olympic committee doesn't listen this podcast in and get a get get offended by what have just said now what about s uh when it comes to like the kidneys the long's the liver a anything interesting going on on those fronts i mean all the same things like our our recreating brand new artificial organs that can be transplanted similarly or is there an uphill battle when it comes these other organs hair.

"Whether it's better than carbs is is is where i think the argument has gotten pushed a little farther than the evidence suggests arm and there's there's there's definitely a bit of a food fight if you will among scientists foreign against this idea debating sort of subtleties of whether the efficiency is increased by a few percent or decreased by a few percent but the bottom line just to simplify it from my perspective is nobody has shown that low carb high fat is better than carbs foremost endurance performance there's some evidence that it might be worse where the advantage might be is if you're talking about ultra endurance performance where you know it it's one thing to say hey just taken sixty grams of carbohydrate per hour and you will be fine it's another thing to do that for twelve hours it's very hard to keep choking down gels for twelve hours so if you can switch to a fat based fuel so that you will have to eat as much during along competition that may well be an advantage in terms of of avoiding stomach upset and things like that in just a few and better so trump definitely open to the idea that this beaut carb high fat approach has some advantages for some people in certain context if you look at the olympic marathon or something like that i i would be surprised if you found anyone really in history who's taken that approach so so to me there is a long way to go before anyone can claim that it's it's better for competitive a dance of safe three hours or less ios as you point out when you're doing a competitive event there's always that that in you had that kick re at the go really fast rail you're doing that sprint and that requires you probably in a switch from aerobic to anaerobic and that requires glycogen which requires carbohydrates so if you're doing a 5 k probably don't you know the highveld low carb not going to do much for you but if you're doing an ultra marathon definitely try yeah and and and you know if you're in the tour to frost then it's a very very long race but every time there is a uh a breakaway every.
