Louis Menand on 'the Free World'
"And joins us now from cambridge massachusetts. He is the author of the metaphysical club and his newest book is called the free world art and thought in the cold war luke. Thanks for being here. Thank you for having me so you are actually in the widener library at harvard university as we speak. That's correct. yes. I'm in the office in the stacks in which i wrote the entire book and i don't think i could have written a book if i hadn't had access to these incredible library resources at harvard. How long did you spend researching the book. Do you tend to do all of your research and then begin writing or do you do both as you go along. I spent about ten years on the book. And i do research for each chapter and i write that chapter and then move onto the next chapter. So he's chapter took a long time to do. Because i wanted to do a fair amount of research to get a feel for the period a feel for what other written about it so you had this all outlined then presumably before you began writing. No the only thing i had outlined was i knew where i wanted to begin which is nineteen forty five at the end of the second world war and i knew the finish line was nineteen sixty five which is the year. The united states intervened militarily in south vietnam. So those were sort of bookends of the book. And then i kinda followed my nose through the period just sort of see where it was going at a certain point as you approach your the horizon that you set for yourself. Nineteen sixty five. You begin to see something happening that you want to capture. So i didn't start out with a thesis exactly. I just wanted to tell the story as it unfolded historically and then. I discovered the doing that. What what the trend lines were that. I tried to sort of hit on those as i was going through it. But he's chapter is sort of a separate book in a takes up at different subject to differ figure different movement and tries to sort of you know capsule it with. That's all about new moves onto another
Many American Parents Are Hesitant to Vaccinate Their Children
"As young as 12 and now eligible for the fires of biotech vaccine in the United States. But many Americans are hesitant, especially when it comes to vaccinating their kids.

Hundreds of people in Orange County, California, We're protesting a local government plan to create digital vaccine passports. They don't want vaccines mandated to them. Or their Children My kids have. They've had their share of vaccinations. But there was vaccinations are they've been around for a long time. This one is experimental because I had cove it. I mean, I do have friends that died from it. I'm sorry, but here's the thing they weren't getting treated. Clinical Studies of 12 to 15 year olds have shown that the Pfizer vaccine was 100% effective in preventing cove. It That was a study of 1100 Children in the placebo group of the same size 16 Children contracted the virus. Many of the people I've met in this protest survived covert with mild or no symptoms. They resent the lockdowns, close schools and playgrounds and they feel their post viral antibodies are enough to protect them naturally lives in Los Angeles and has four Children. We've all had covert. No. Definitely will not put that experiment in any of our bodies. Unfortunately, I have my dad did it and my sister did it because they lived in Israel in Israel is not allowing anyone to go in any of establishments without It's called the green eyed. It's basically what they're trying to do here. They were forced into it. They don't want to. That's the problem is all this is being forced Tiffany picket in her five Children have all also had covered They don't know how long the antibodies last there. Would you consider getting the vaccine for yourselves or your Children?

Liz Cheney Ousted From Republican Leadership for Challenging Trump Election Claims
"Speaking of not going to convince anybody. Liz Cheney was ousted from leadership within the GOP earlier today, it was a very big studio. Everybody had very, very strong opinions about it. Liz Cheney is is about as pro Trump as a conservative Republican can get. According to the Heritage Foundation. She voted for President Donald Trump, or with President Donald Trump something like 92.9% of the time. It's It's an amazing, amazing figure, but because she decided to come out against him in the most recent impeachment. Now what they're effectively doing as we're going to hear from CBS is this kind of sacrificial killing. They're doing this thing where they're trying to demonstrate to the base. They're trying to show everybody in the Trump base that they really do care. And by doing so, we're going to oust Liz Cheney from GOP leadership for just expressing her opinion as guaranteed to her by the Constitution of the United States. As a representative, we need to get rid of her, regardless. Here is a list Cheney earlier today. Today we face a threat America has never seen before. Ah, former president who provoked a violent attack on this capital in an effort to steal the election, has resumed his aggressive effort to convince Americans that the election was stolen from him. He risks inciting further violence. Millions of Americans have been misled by the former president. They have heard on Lee his words, but not the truth as he continues to undermine our democratic process, sowing seeds of doubt about whether democracy really works at all. I am a conservative Republican and the most conservative of conservative principles is reverence for the rule of law. Theological. Toral College has voted more than 60, State and federal courts, including multiple judges, the former president appointed have rejected his claims. The Trump Department of Justice investigated the former president's claims of widespread fraud

Water supply systems power systems and then most recently the colonial pipeline that is the dominant player in gasoline jet fuel and diesel the delivery of it in the eastern part of the country. And so you've probably seen if you don't live in the eastern part of the. Us may have seen clips or things online people pulling into gas stations. That have no gas people lined up down streets and it is a terrible situation for people can't even get to work and a lot of places right as speaking because they can't find any gas where they live so this was done by russians but nine state russians in other words not doing it on behalf of the evil dictator putin but the warning to all of us is that this is a part of modern life and modern warfare is using modern technology against us because we have become so dependent on modern technology for so many things. And if you're a longtime listener to me you know my obsession with redundancy redundancy if you're not aware of it is something that is originally from the airline industry and spaceflight

Introducing Ronald Young Jr., Solvables Newest Host [TEST]
"Listeners. I want to introduce you to ronald young junior. You might be familiar with his name from other work. In podcasting leading shows like time well spent and leaving the theater. He's sometime guess contributed around. Npr's pop culture happy hour. We are really excited to make it. Official that ronald is going to be the newest host of solvable. Thank you thank you for having me. I'm so so excited to be here so publicly on the team. Believe it or not hosting solvable is not my main job. My main job is being. Ceo pushing in and pushkin over the last year in lockdown has like doubled in size. We have almost fifty people now. And it's exciting. There's a lot going on But it's sort of crowded out the time that i like to spend preparing and figuring out gas that also i'm not really a host. I don't know if you noticed that. I think i am trade. I'm an Host i have certain hosts qualities that i'm really interested in talking to the guests on the show And i have a lot of drive to learn. But i don't have that quality of hosting which i hear your voice and i really wanna know how that is done. Well first of all. I don't know if that's that's the message like we got hosted coaster said coming on all star show. I've always found it easy to talk to people. I've always founded easy to connect with folks and ask questions. And i'm curious about and mostly because as a child i was always encouraged to ask whether it was two friends. The families the teachers. And i think that's what helps with being a good host and with conducting good interviews. Which you do a great job of thank you ronald but yeah no. I think that just that basic quality of curiosity. If if you don't wanna know you can't read someone else's questions the producers on the show do suggest a lot great questions for us but ultimately you ask the ones that are your questions that have been you want. no yes. It's funny because like you know working with the solvable team. It's certainly is a team effort. But i think what makes a good host that what makes a good interviewer is the ability to read the conversation and to know when it when it needs to take a turn when it's about the pivot or when you're curiosity might push the interviewee a little deeper into the subject matter and even more comfortable and ready to answer more questions as they go so and i really enjoy doing that so this is a very exciting role for me. You do something i mean. Since were on this this topic. I do think being a really good host goes beyond just the flow of the conversation. Asking the right questions that something about creating this this environment this kind of comfort even this sense of place. And here's what. I don't feel that. I really know how to do but i hear in your voice you know in a lot of the people who are just really good shows terry gross. You know you just feel like you're at her place like you're in her world and you know in the guest is coming into her world and you feel as a listener. You're made to feel welcome and comfortable. How do you do that route. You know wish. I could say there was a trick. I wish i could tell you. Hey do this thing. And this'll this'll work but for me. It's just it's hospitality. It's really being genuinely interested in what they have to say. It's paying attention to them. Not necessarily thinking so far ahead that you can't be president in the conversation creating that warm sensitive environment it really comes from like a genuine place inside people and i think most people talk to you. We'll tell you that this is who. I am all the time. So it makes it easier for me to just bring this be to a hosting role Whereas some people. I think are very good at being a host and then you know in the rest of their lives are not nearly as hospitable or friendly and i can't say anything about ten gross but i i know that good host is being able to create that sense of hospitality in the conversation that they're having that moment. Yeah i think of the great host of my childhood dick caveat who was on. Tv obviously long before your time but back in the days before cable there only a few channels every night cabinet was having these interesting people on his show and he's charming. He's charmed by the gas and a lot of what he's trying to do. Is of course just inject wisecracks. I've got clip here. That's a good example of that it's cabot talking to the comedian don rickles. It's hard for you to be serious but it is. I think people don't admit that deep down inside. If i may be serious for a moment that you do something on stage that all of us would like to do if we had no class the other host i think about all the time as i grew up listening on the radio growing up in chicago. Two studs terkel here just as one example is studs terkel interviewing muhammad ali at one thousand nine hundred seventy five. Why do you think it is always in this particular theater. So many different people are. Why would they rooting for you. The outsider we'll i think the masses root for me because this scuffling they've been persecuted they figure by the tat taxes and whatever they've underdogs people are basically the underdogs hole and the things that i say from my people in the free involve people and the way i speak out in the title of the have and the and now let this. Stop me from recognizing every day man that thing. This is what they whether it'd be black or white. The massive people hardworking people the amazing thing about studs terkel circle. He was so good at talking to anybody today. He would have like a janitor and then he would. Have you know an opera singer. And then he would. Have you know a former vice president or politician and he just part of what was great about him with. He would talk to everybody the same way. Yeah i mean there's a sense of empathy that comes with no matter. Who's in the room. It should be able to be extended to anyone who's sitting opposite from you whether they'd be the janitor or the president of the united states. The other thing is not being afraid to ask even a question that may not sound as smart as you think it does. I think larry king wants said He was he was on. He was talking to jesse thorn. My friend hobie. Khan who wrote you negotiate anything. We grew up together. He says to me larry. The secret of your success is your dumb dumb. Is the great road to success. Because you not afraid to. I don't know tell me help me. That's a lot of interviews help. help me that. You're you're a brain search. You got brain surgery tomorrow morning. Think about it tonight when you go in the check your hands. If they're steady. And then all of a sudden you have this. Very poignant moment because larry king asked a question that is wow. I would have even sit there. I was like ronald do you. Do i do that. Also i wanna make sure that. I i do that but having that empathy allows you to be embassy to cross from you like i said whether it's the janitor or the president of the united states. Yeah so for this show. We do interviews with a particular kind of focused. How is problem solving. And how are people who have ideas about solving problems. Making the world veteran capable of making the world better. And that's the thing that can be big range of stuff. Yeah if you look out there let's say your your houses near the water and you look out there and you're just like the water seems to be creeping closer and closer. You're only thinking about what's going to happen when the water reaches your house and all the horrible things that can happen as the water continues to rise and the flooding when you when you start to think about all that it kind of changes your posture versus if you think how do we stop the water. How do we get the people out. How do we keep my house. Dry and think in terms of This podcast i'd like that it's pivoting from us talking so much about what the issue is because in most cases we know what the issue is what we really need to know is. What's the best way forward. How can we like either neutralize whatever. This problem is or at least adjust our lives so that the problem isn't what it is. Do we need to build a bridge. Maybe we need to build our houses higher whatever that means in order to To get out of the water. I think it gives a bit of optimism to the world
How We Can Design Autonomous Systems for Values
"Listeners. Welcome back to the humane podcast as were diving. Deeper into twenty twenty one. There's one thing that's been on. Everyone's mind and it's not the pandemic it's the rise of ai.

The splintering of the internet the splintering of a and research and science and whether technology is being used for the greater good or for alternative purposes in today's guest on our show is stephen. Umbro who is a managing director for the institute for ethics and emerging technologies in the european union. Stevens work focuses on ethics and design thinking around building.

I mean singapore taiwan china korea and other countries and island nations and also with colleagues out west in the united states and canada in the european union. And there seems to be a diverging thoughts on where we're going to be going with these systems. Let's start with some background from you. About what type of work do you do with autonomous systems and ai systems. And where are we out today with the work that you're doing so i i guess you could say something. My work is could be described as being somewhat eclectic. However it's all within the more umbrella Domain of engineering ethics.
Birth Care for Every Body
"The reality. According to the cdc about seven hundred women die each year in the united states from complications related to their pregnancy. And the thing is is that you know this country says it is the most modern advanced industrialized and so it's seven hundred women. Every year is too many and black and indigenous. People are two to three times more likely to die from pregnancy related issues than their white counterparts. The relationship with the medical field and doctors and whether or not we as people of color can have a say over how we are treated probably is one of the factors here earlier this month representative corey. Bush testified before the house oversight committee about her own experiences during childbirth. Let's take a listen around five months. I went to see my doctor for a routine prenatal visit. As i was sitting in the doctor's office. I noticed a picture on the wall. They said if you feel like something is wrong. Something is wrong. Tell your doctor. I felt like something was wrong. So so that's what i did. I told my doctor. I told her that. I was having severe pains. And she said oh. No you're fine. you're fine. Go home. And i'll see you next time. So that's what i did. I went home one week later. I went into preterm labor. Twenty three weeks. My son was born one pound three ounces. his ears were still in his head. His eyes were still fused shut. His fingers were smaller than rice. And his skin was translucent. A black baby translucence. Can you could see his lungs. He could fit within the palm of my hand. We were told he had zero percent chance of life. The chief of neonatal surgery happened to be in the hospital that morning and saw my case on the surgical board and she decided to try to resuscitate him. It worked for the first month of his life as i was on a ventilator fighting to live for four months he was in the neo. Natal care unit. The doctor who deliver my son apologized. She said you were right. And i didn't listen to you. Give me another chance to us later. I was pregnant again. So i went back to her sixteen weeks. I went for an ultrasound at the clinic and saw different doctor. Who was working that day. I found out again. I was in preterm labor. The doctor told me that the baby was going to abort i said. No you have to do something. But he was adamant he said. Just go home. let it aboard. You can get pregnant again. Because that's what you people do. Mr kelly was with me. We didn't know what to do after the doctor left. So we saw a chair sitting sitting in the hallway. My sister picked up the chair. She threw it down the hallway. Nurses came running from everywhere to see what was wrong. A nurse called my doctor and she put me on a stretcher. The next morning by doctor came in and places arklow on my uterus and i was able to carry my baby my daughter my angel who is now twenty years old. My son who was saved is now twenty one years old. This is what desperation looks like that chair flying down the hallway. This is what being your own advocate. Looks

Me and molly would on a Tuesday welcome back to make me smart or deep dive into a single topic Germane and relevant to the news of the day. Jermaine and relevant. It's hard to figure out how to talk about items related to politics at this late date however turns out a lot of voting is happening and by a lot of accounts. Many of these early votes that are being cast are being cast by the youths. The young's the youngsters the most coveted vote in America that never seems to happen. and. So we wanted to do a deep dive into the youth vote and this idea that we are in gerontocracy no matter who wins the November election. The White House will be occupied by the oldest sitting us, president, Congress the presidency, and the electorate are all aging and so we want to talk about where that leaves young people and their political clout in our political system. Oldest president whichever guy wins ever elected to that office, which is simply mind boggling but Gerontocracy do me A little a little more definition here which Merriam Webster defines. Thank you producers Gerontocracy rule by elders. In this case, it really does mean specifically that our government is run by often voted for by people who are older and getting older right the average age of a member of Congress right now is fifty eight. That number is just been increasing since nineteen eighty-one and according to a piece I read in the Guardian Typically Congressional representatives right now are twenty years older than their constituents. It's crazy. Now, we should say here for those of you in that age bracket who Defined Gerontocracy as it were. Don't add us if if you know what that means because look, it's not to say the right I'm just getting myself deeper into trouble here it's it's not dead people who are seasoned cannot govern effectively but the question is, are they representative of the American electorate and the American population more specifically as a whole right there is a chance that they may be around to see the results of some of the decisions, the votes they are taking. Yes always happens but it but it's it's a topic worth exploring, and so we're. Yep.

Dispatch comes from Mass General Cancer Center when facing the unknown. It is often the small acts of courage that we experience in our daily lives that power us to face another day. We're all in this together. So Mike I want to shift to the virus itself and so you're you're producing this from well before and you know. I can remember vividly before we all had to leave. The offices are our conversations around this phone. And how urgent it felt at the time. Then Corona virus hits. What's going through your mind? Were you looking to see when would conspiracy theories start to Bubble up and what did you see? Well there was really no doubt we were shooting in New York series of interviews and it was basically the week of March twelfth. So we're in New York. We're shooting interviews about conspiracies about all the things you and I have just been talking about and With experts and people who do it and all kinds of things like that and we keep hearing news reports and we keep hearing about this rising crisis and that it's coming and we've been talking about it before but we're in New York now and we start hearing. There's going to be locked lockdown. In other words I very early. A Corona virus conspiracy is Uttered in our presence and people say why people were starting to come to do interviews with gloves on and you know sanitize sanitizers with them and they were looking at us. These are people who are in the middle of the conspiracy world and they were saying the Chinese have released a bioweapon in the United States of America. It's going to take over New York and it's GonNa Shut New York Down. You guys better get out of town and we said well. The better part of valour is for us to to get out of here. We rented a car white down and drove back in the middle of the night and started to invent a new way to shoot so that we could. We could finish the film and certainly began to research. What's going on with the corona virus? Conspiracies so I mean it's interesting that they came in with conspiracy theory that this was being spread by China and there was a conspiratorial aspect to that but the idea that New York would shut down if they start to spread that idea and then New York shuts down. What happens to people listening to those conspiracy theory? So they believe it more. I mean this is what I'm trying to get underneath like. So does that mean then. People start to think well they were right. Yes I mean. The beauty of big powerful conspiracy. Theories is that they often seem to be right. We all remember Watergate you know we all remember Information about WMD. We all remember that those were conspiracy theories at one moment. People were saying. Wait a minute. The Bush administration doesn't have any proof for this and a lot of people. Progressives said. Yeah that's right but It was viewed as a really crazy thing to assert at the moment. So enough things happen. that come from conspiracy theories that people do believe them especially a certain cohort and in this case you had a large group of Americans who already are used to having stars like Jerome Corsi. Who in the film Alex Jones and and others who they know? These people are the sort of rockstars of of conspiracies and they know and trust them and when they start to say especially in the very beginning this is this is not a virus. It's GONNA come. This is media hoax. It's a desire to blame. President trump a lot of people who were his supporters in his base. Really of course believe that especially when Fox's heralding it and And it's IT'S A it's a it's a desire to shift. The blame to trump is what they all said in a lot of people believe that when when the virus itself started to show up and people started to die broke out in. Seattle and was on its way to New York. That's when that's when the message. That corona virus was intentionally spread by Chinese operatives. Going a lot of people dealing an explanation for what was happening began to believe them right. So is that the top conspiracy theory is that is that the one that's gotten the most track and tell me. Tell me what's the one that's gotten the most traction? It gets better than that so early. You have the left in the media hoax to blame trope. Then it's corona virus is intentionally spread by Chinese operatives that makes a comeback a little later but at the time that was everything then a right around that time. Another group of people of Anti Vaxxers were very big on the idea that the virus is is being acted on because of a as a result of population control efforts by a Bill Gates and Bill Gates becomes the New George Soros of this particular issue. The idea that he wants to plant that they WANNA plant That the Gates Foundation wants to get into vaccines but it also wants the devices in people microchips. That becomes a huge. Wait a minute. We don't we don't want anything from them then. Of course that morphs into the deep state plot to eliminate freedom which is a lot of what you're seeing. Now look behind me here. They are still lining the streets. They are still blaring the horns. Many would signs saying that.

Amazing so Mike you know you and I are so used to sitting across the table and just talking and today we're talking remotely which is of course a sign of the Times but thanks for joining me on the dispatch pleasure over the years. You and I have long talked. I mean this is now going on almost a decade talked about conspiracy theories how they take hold how they spread and You know we've always wondered what the right timing was for a big film on conspiracy theories you to talk to us about why now. Well I think one of the things we've discovered radian all the years of making these sounds about Washington and the White House and the presidency is the extent to which To try to come up with unifying explanation of why what is happening in American politics and what's happening especially when we experienced in two thousand eight two thousand nine time period The rise of the tea party again and we wondered how. How does something like that get started? How does it? Grow? How does it influence our politics? And and and as you know from our earlier discussion whether we should make this summer that we can't believe that the conspiracy theories are central to America's politics right now for sure and have been growing that way through the Obama administration and up to now been living forever but they are central to. I think what's happening our politics. You're a director who loves to tell a story through people. So Mike Who's been central and you're in your character portraits. Well the way we're telling. Our story is through the rise of Alex Jones. It is Monday may eighteenth year to twenty twenty emergency transmission pro human future and we have a great responsibility here on the broadcast. Really lay out. You're going to be playing and I dare say you choose to accept this mission. You have an incredible responsibility because we have a real chance stopping the new World Order. Rise is nothing is of conspiracy theory in American politics. You Watch him Starting backwards Nine eleven and moving and to to this moment now where he gets literally gone from the French right into the Oval Office. Many people in the cell call president trump to can spirit or and cheap because he does have a conspiratorial mindset and has had colleges career but Jones and trump are connected in twenty fifteen twenty sixteen by Roger Stone. It becomes its second major character of its own. All whatever they talked about in that incredible summer is amplified by Vladimir Putin Russia and it is all service. Donald Trump and trump's presidency. We get the left in they're pretty substantially after trump is elected. But in these incredibly important years it is Jones that you can watch the gloss the power the reach of the modern political conspiracy Stone Jones and trump. What is that moment? When is that what happens? What goes down so Alex Jones once upon a time a fringe late night access the TV guy in Austin Texas and now live from Austin Texas Alex Jones. Well I've been warning you about it for at least five years all terrorism that we've looked at the World Trade Center Oklahoma City to Waco has been government actions. They need this as a pretext. Bring you and your family martial law. Same is accentuated by the fact that he has figured out how to use the Internet to connect fringe people. Otherwise you've always had conspiracies and they were out there passing Mimeographs letters back and forth once Jones figures out how to build a network from facebook instagram to Youtube. All the ways that you can spend a conspiracy and connect people who in them suddenly. He's the guy big powerful force on the fringe and when he discovers these but it has to. He has to get more and more outrageous. And the conspiracies have to get bigger and bigger at this time he's primarily an entertainer and to salesman supplements body armor for the coming Armageddon. That will come because the world government is GONNA take over. Forget everything you've been told about. Long-term food storage when the collapse happens. Say Dot Kazuo revolutionary wonderful.

You're listening to marketplace this is marketplace. I'm Kai Ryssdal. We spend a whole lot of time on this program talking about American workers. We talk about them on the first Friday of every month when the jobs report comes out at today two hundred sixty six thousand new jobs but talked about in the jobs report being not to Doug on bad more people coming into the labor force as well. We talk about him when we're talking about wages and why they're not going up. Wages are just keeping pace. We'd use. That's a great American workers. Purchasing power has basically stayed steady. And we talk about him when we talk to the people doing the jobs where they have to scramble the most when there are big changes in the national and global economies. Prices are tumbling every day. This is still that. We ordered six seven eight months prior. If there's one thing that retailers do as we adapt and we talk about him because the American labor force is the engine of this economy but really. How much do we know about the people who make this economy work and whether or not this economy's working for them that's the through line of a series? We're launching today. Called the United States of work digging deep into the labor force and telling the stories of people in it some definitions. I though I think we are talking here about everybody over. The age of sixteen. Who has a job wants a job and is looking for a job? That's one hundred sixty four or so million people. We are not talking about people who don't have a job or looking people who don't work outside the home active duty military and people who are incarcerated but one hundred sixty four million is way too many people to call up and talk to two. Here's what we did. We took big picture data about those one hundred sixty four million people. What kinds of jobs they do. How the government classifies them and what the demographic breakdown is and then we came up with ten profiles ten archetypes to roughly match the labor force as a whole and then we went out and we found those people in real life. Hey It's resulted in Los Angeles. How are you? Hey Stephanie Silverman in Nashville. I'm good how are you doing? Hi Fi we've got a doctor in rural Ohio. I'm the owner. I'm the employer on the physician and I'm also the plumber. Sometimes a hairstylist. In Boise Idaho Boise small. So it'd be interesting to be like at a restaurant and you'll go over and you're like Oh man. I gave up a bad haircut a long time ago. A truck driver from Kansas City Missouri. I noticed people swerving. I noticed people texting. I noticed people looking back in the back seat at their children. Them and seven more and over the next week or so and for the rest of the year. We're going to be following all ten at work at home at school for some all of them though making a go of it in this economy. This is the United States of work. Always things that you don't like about your job you work hard for what you want your ups and Dale Good Job. Millions Hustle like working fast. It's not a career lifestyle. The first stop on our ten person journey through the United States of work is New York City. Men's New York real estate. It's all like closing grant. I'm in a Pretty Standard Manhattan office building right near Thirty Fourth in eight to meet Michael Durant. Hey I'm Michael. How are you thanks for taking time? Sarma Hannah's wet. It's raining outside and thirty one years old native New Yorker Certified Public Accountant by trade. He worked here the firm of Prager Mattis for a couple years give or take were mid-size accounting firm nationals practice and we also have expanded internationally. So we're we're growing. We're growing by the construction. They're store. Yeah we sat down on the couch around the corner from his cubicle near kitchen that people were wandering in and out of we should say here the talk about his place in these United States of work Tell me about being A. Cpa what do you do every day? When it's not taxis and taxis and right we know what you're doing compliance but throughout the year we work with particularly my departments high net worth individuals who trust in the states. All about that planning for the future. We're what legacy do you WANNA leave the. How do you WANNA leave it? Protecting assets is really something we do. Lago spends most of his days at a desk or in meetings looking over numbers and talking to clients in our ten person reimagining of the American labor force. He's one of four people in the broad category of jobs that the Bureau of Labor Statistics Calls Management Professional and related occupations in real life. That's nearly forty percent of all the workers in this economy. The biggest category there is an includes teachers and CEOS. Dentists registered nurses and architects as well so big picture How's your economy right now? I mean you're economic day to day is good fine. You need more. What for me. I would say it's on an upward trend. You know it's not you know who doesn't want a better economy for themselves. But I wouldn't say I feel any pressure or too much pressure from the economy like I'm in a career field where it's a squirted training now. Cpa's are needed and firms are always looking to hire so the economy for me is really well because skill set is needed it makes about eighty five thousand dollars a year Michael. Does he's got a 401K. Couple of months savings in the bank. He bought an apartment up by Yankee Stadium when he was twenty one to tell me anxious. Fan Right of course. Okay when they're not at home which makes a lot of sense and if you lost his job tomorrow I can easily say. I'll be fine. No problem that's not to say that every person in this slice of the labor force is doing fine. Because they're not but people like Michael. With college degrees marketable skills and professional certifications do tend to out earn other kinds of workers. Michael though didn't always know that this slice of the labor force would include him. How did you wind up here? I mean when you were fifteen. Were being account. It's going to be a mechanic. You're going to be a mechanic. Yes so so. My grandfather owned a trucking garage He fixed trucks and cars. This is something I've been around all my life. I like cars. Fast and furious came out when I was like so all of those things where I've seen so myself going to high school working at McDonalds at the time. So I think I was making six seventy five an hour and when the high school senior came in who had just finished her internship and she explained a process. You've gotta take all these extra classes and get get such and such grades and at high school. I'm thinking they just want to go outside to have fun so I wasn't interested until she said and then if you do well you get this internship. You could make ten dollars an hour now is like he does it in winds up getting an internship with the accounting firm KPMG. I believe it was ten or ten fifty an hour so it was definitely a big bump and it was exposure. If you hadn't gotten that internship way back And then been exposed to keep him G and all of that. Where would you be right? Now what would you be doing? Probably be mechanic like pep boys or something just because I had no exposure turn else other than manual blue collar labor. The only person in my life who had a college degree at the time was my grandmother which she didn't use. She preferred working with her hands. So fundamental your first generation rate I mean pretty much real real but that internship that exposure didn't just change Michael's expectations about his future. It changed his family's economic expectations to. Hey how are you going on? It's good to see. I went up to Michael's apartment a stadium to visit him and his little brother age zone after a while teenagers do. Aj's in high school. He and Michael are sixteen years apart and his plans for the future are markedly different than his brothers. Were at his age. I guess I have a different history than Michael because I have a bunch of people telling me go to call his. They're here to support me. Aj just went on a College tour NHPC college tour so he got how many SFU's eight schools thirteen. That's cool good for you. That's awesome Tell me about this camp that Michael to a Columbia so a few years ago I was sent to this tech camp at Columbia because at that time I was really into programming and I wanted to grow up being the next Bill Gates. Or that's a pretty big old Michael sitting on all right. Yeah that's the goal goal so think about that in fifteen years. This family went from one brother. Thinking grow up to be an auto mechanic to another brother knowing he's going to college and thinking he might grow up to be Bill Gates but it's not just aj who's got more school in his future so classes at six fifteen so we got about a half an hour four nights a week after a full day of work. Michael heads across the East River to the City University of New York School of law. I just always wanted to go to law school professionally. It expands my portfolio of services or abilities that I will have to provide But also looking at myself and the difference between my friends and even family members and differences. I got a different education nat allowed me to take advantage of more opportunities Michael and Aj to probably will be able to live and save and yet pay off their student loans because education gave them the ticket to the slice of the American labor force. So this is the school here I actually for me just the school in general represents future opportunity. I think that's what most of us come here for the future ability to affect change so that was Michael Durant the first in our ten person construct of the labor force. Ten people were using to represent the one hundred sixty four million people who make this economy work later in the week. The other nine some who didn't go to college but found opportunities in other ways some who tried it but decided it wasn't for them and some who went to college but aren't using their degrees on the program tomorrow though we're heading west. I tell people all the time. We have over nine hundred bars in Portland which is a lot. We have about twelve bartenders for every bar. And you don't need that many if you want to know more about how we use that data from the. Bls's came up with a list of people you're going to be hearing from. We've got a whole piece about it at our website. Marketplace dot org slash work.

I'd love to hear these and climate pirate Greta Thornburgh sailed the Atlantic zero emissions boat you like that Segue and appeared on Capitol Hill yesterday with a singular message wake up she says this this is not the time or place for dreams. This is the time to wake up. This is the moment in history. We need to be wide awake. This is the biggest crisis in humanity. That humanity has ever faced. You cannot solve a crisis without treating it as one stop telling people everything will be fine. It will not be fine. Thornberg is easily. The most high profile climate activist in history since at at least Al Gore is the only other one that I think even reached this height. He's not nearly in the door lock box and it's the right idea though she's always sixteen and on a two-day trip to Washington she witnessed are divided government close up and told trevor no on the daily show that the thing that sets America apart from other countries. She's visited about climate changes that we are still still arguing. That climate change is real. She and a group of youth activists met with Nancy Pelosi Wednesday in presented a set of demands including the call supported green new deal when she also met with Obama and if you haven't seen this video you should see it grab a tissue yeah. She also said. I don't know if you were GONNA. mentioned bone of my favorite quotes was she said I don't want you to listen to me. I want you to listen to the scientists scientists yeah the exactly point mic drop right there right yeah and she she also met with Schumer but she did not meet with trump and she didn't meet with any Republican leaders instead. She protested outside the White House. Yes you probably be like the first minor trump ever punched in the Oval Office so you've been area with Jordan. Can you imagine like ours Asian ago because when you're young you just don't give a fuck if punched you mean groped no probably right right yeah no. I. I feel like the whole thing is trump's. He's meeting his mash in so many ways like he doesn't understand climate change. He doesn't respect you know like women or right exactly exactly yeah so saying he'd be so infuriated emasculated by sixteen year old. He wakes part as like influential yeah. Mike Dropping volcano which is very ironic. She could votes in America today. Yeah I commend her so much like what she's doing like. You said I it's it's a youthful spirit but also in at something more than that. She's like this amazing leader that I didn't even know the world needed like just the fact that this is her future on the all our future but like someone at her aged be so wise and articulate. What a lot of people at her age. You're feeling right now and that's the thing too is the age thing Jalil you bring that up and that's a great point because during in her appearance before Congress there was also a young conservative activist named Benji backer. He's a founder the American cons- Conservation Coalition a group of young conservatives concerned about climate change climate science is real. It's not hoax he said addressing trump in his testimony as a proud American lifelong conservative as a young person. I urge you to accept climate change for the reality. It is and respond accordingly mainly. We need your leadership so you know thanks to Greta. Millions of young people are set to strike today Friday by walking out of class and this is expected to be the single biggest global global environmental demonstration in history so cool and the organizers have five demands green new deal the respect of indigenous land sovereignty environmental justice protection and restoration vision of biodiversity and sustainable agriculture and for more information on this you can head to strike with US dot org but you're so right about the age thing I think I it it comes to a certain point where a lot of the boomers are thinking. I'll be dead and someone like me thinking oh it'll be fine and then someone like her is leg. No I will not have the luxury of thinking that I'll be fine in my twenties. Sleigh I'm thinking in my forties which still taking for granted I'm like. Oh yeah whatever you know Oh but I forget four days. It's like the twenties like every time I get older. I forget that you feel you. Never feel old and you never really get old. It's just like you never feel like even have time until like in reality polity. These things are gonNA affect us in our prime lifetime. You know like this is crazy but even as a millennial is so full Jada to it I respect Tur- so much for for constantly keeping that drumbeat going it's so important and just so relevant to me yeah and this is what Obama was talking about about about hope. This is his hope. Hope wasn't I'm going to win an election. and everything's GonNa be Great. That wasn't the hope he was talking about. The hope he was talking about all the young people people being born that are going to who wash over this country like a wave of awesomeness and that is the hope that his whole thing is about the really sad thing is that environmental racism is very the real and the groups of people that are going to feel the change first and hardest is always gonna be communities of color APP because of that. There's going to be this sense of safety. The people who have any amount of privilege really going to experience during it when it starts getting really Vati and then you've seen that in your lifetime Katrina tore you were right in it yeah. It happened so quickly yeah. I was just thinking about that today. It's funny like it just like flashbacks of wow yeah. America can become a third world country just like that overnight almost when you merge like two classes is one. That's been deprived of basic rights in another WHO's been like so privileged. Don't even know what oppression even is really. It's like that disconnected which is almost like ah I know. It's crazy to say rich. People have a blind spot. That's diversity but I truly do think when you're born into wealth. I don't blame them. Sometimes for beings and I don't mean like the really cool liberal roll or Conservative moderates but like you know really rich. Conservatives are like deal with it. You Know No. They're gonNA come for you they're going to it's going to be like the purge. You don't want it to get bad. Trust me this affects. You and it's not your fault that you can't see. It helps somebody on Labor Day like hey. I'm just WANNA remind all the rich people in corporate owners that you know the reason that we have minimum wage and Labor Day is because we you know we were going to come and kill you in your houses and this was the deal that we had so that we you didn't do that just a reminder yeah you told me to pull myself up on my bootstraps and B. can't even food when exactly you can't afford boots you can't you're basically living wages and then they're. GonNa say like sorry. I just think some conservatives tell liberals to get guns. You know like Oh if you're trying to take guns away. You better get guns yourself and I'm like okay. If that's true lies this. Isn't you said it no. You don't want that you don't want it unless just try peacefully through policy yeah. Can you imagine if this is what conservatives are like just angry right now. We've Democratic Party is interest in such a giant sleeping bear. Yeah Shit actually gets like who is normal everyone actually in and goes to bed for one hundred and fifty or so years beer baron. There's a revolution absolutely will be on. You know we'll be here. We'll all be able to. I say we were there for the revenue. Not just keep my head on the corner. Tanabe here for it could be a blessing and if you don't know what I'm talking about. We've been talking since the beginning of Muller. She wrote that all I wanNA know is what's in the Miller report fully unredacted and all the underlying evidence in grand jury material but I don't think I'll live long enough for that to be declassified so we're working on a way to keep my head alive live after I pass away so that I can figure it out although we did have God on the podcast and he assured me that once I do pass on to the next realm he will show me all the unredacted materials serials underlying evidence in grand jury stuff so shout shout out God. Finally we learned Katy Waldman the communications director for Republican Loser Zor Martha mcsally and former defender of trump's border policy as a press secretary for Department of Homeland Security has been hired as Mike Pence's press secretary whatever ever but the ski be part of this story is that she's also dating Stephen Miller. Oh that's why I put in my script. Wait for response. Ha dating was trending. I didn't know you like the reason by okay. I thought it was like one of those. GimMe reason why you would dates even millions. I want to get into this by someone actually is dating him. Yeah no reason no reason no reason unless I wanted a free membership club for men which I don't need you know she must actually I believe in his policy because I see a lot of people seem to actually hey you know Mexicans and stuff like I unfortunately I think there's so many people there that you think will you're like you. You know you're an attractive person person you got promise and they ended up being racist and I'm like come on and so they're probably I assume she's attractive because he in comparison to him. It's really attractive. She's pretty cute. I would think and orange actively. She's pretty cute. She's nobody I would ever if you're a conservative and you're dating someone that worked for the president. I mean that's gotTa feel good but I can't relate to a conservative any further other than that general. It's actually know any too much she except for my crazy uncle yeah but she she was the press secretary for Department of Homeland Security and I'm sure Stephen Aloha lot to do with that policy and then Charlotte Clamor tweeted quote my thoughts and prayers go out to anyone dating Stephen Miller. We've covered a few stories on how trump supporters can't seem to get a date date. esquire vanity did one and do you remember especially in. DC A lot a lot happens in California when you to and so you get to this point where there's nobody like. There's like not plenty of fish in the sea. dot com should be dating site for trump supporters so they all. It's gotTa that'd be very incestuous. They all just have to fuck each other because the the like where you where else are you going to go well yeah and I figured that would shoot us in the foot because saying something like that is it's only funny for a moment but eventually eventually of course they're going to find a date like that's why thinks only among themselves and that's who they were going to be the whole time. They're not gonNA data. Political liberal activists like they're going to date someone who thinks like like them. I mean unless today we're way hotter Yup. I that's another thing pulling. People are hot on both parties but that's unfortunate because it really confuses me it depends it depends on if the brain is factored in to any of your your never actually like because to me like hotness is is mostly liaison inside and so that's where all the blood is yeah. I'm a little I can be a little physical attraction to I factor that in that's why Stephen Miller is is really unattractive but you're right and also on both levels. He's an attractive but Yes abo sexual exist..

"This is going to make you mad. There's new reporting about the reporting about Cavanaugh and the new accused of sexual assault so you guys know we talked about this. I think earlier in the week or maybe last week when these to a New York Times reporters are writing a book and and some of that information came out out and about another accusation where a young female student at Yale he exposed herself enforce genitals into her hand and seven other people corroborated rated the event she herself did not recall it and so that was an explosive story at brought up the Hulk trudged up the whole cavenaugh thing again which is so great for everyone's mental health but according to the reporters and Authors Robin let's see Poker Ben and Kate Kelly Cavanaugh agreed to let them interview him for their upcoming book as long as they would publicly lie about it. NCAA he refused to be interviewed. A representative for Cavanaugh has declined to comment. The author said they couldn't agree to the justices terms so they didn't conduct the interview way. I'm I'm maybe just just not getting this right. Did he say you're supposed to lie and say I didn't do it when he did it like when they have documentation of him doing the interview or like was he just never play. You wouldn't agree agree to do the interview unless they put in the book that he declined to interview well. That seems strange. That seems like a mind fuck. Is it just me no I'm with you. I don't understand that why why would even do the do anything he does right. Why would you put your penis or whatever hands you know yeah. He's a weird guy. I don't trump maybe because if it's known that they were talking to him directly there would be certain questions that they would just kind of have to ask him okay. He's there in front of your face. That makes more sense more vague. If that makes a lot of sense I imagine more of a dialogue but in reality would probably be like you're implying something more narrative live since like but they haven't well idea though yeah yeah he does seem strange but but sure I take it as as they say weird the super weird say yeah cabinet onto the weird one. I he's the source. He basically was like yeah. I'll talk to you but you can't tell people that I did yeah so weird. creating the illusion that the whole story came from other. Intel your other sources so that he could probably you know plausible deniability so you could deny night even know what you're talking about. Yeah definitely don't want to overlook that fact yeah and so that's why they didn't agree to the interview Aaron. A surprise surprise awesome prize trump is suing the Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance to block his subpoenas for eight years of trump's federal tax returns from the accounting firm Maziarz we we we had been drums lawyer. jaysekulow genius extraordinaire made the announcement but the document wasn't on Pacer. It was weird as one of the things that didn't go up. We only got the lawsuit because it was released by the southern district of New York a suit challenges advances subpoenas that are part of his investigation into whether the trump organization broke the law by falsifying business records in the hush money payment and cover up scandal trump contends the subpoena is unconstitutional because the president can't be criminally charged so therefore he can't be subject to criminal process such as a grand jury subpoena Classic Classic Classic Trump no court has ever directly ruled on that question so there is a no case law supporting their assertion Russian but they do cite the Justice Department guidelines. That's the office of Legal Counsel memo that we you know we are all very familiar. That says you can't indicted sitting president and he says since you can indict me. You can't take me through any criminal process. I WANNA get at ten to you at home. Memo God that would hurt a long memo. They're calling it. Harare member your your joke about He filed a forty page brief and you're like it doesn't sound brief. This is the same switch and they're calling it. Harassment presidential harassment though trump is now suing doing in four cases related to his tax returns including the DC case against the House Ways and Means Committee in Richard Neal his case against the Trust Act in New York where the state you know can now. They've passed a law that says they can get the state taxes even though they haven't requested him he preemptively sued them his case against the House Democrats who subpoenaed maziarz which is what this is also but this is is the Manhattan. Da and now the suit in California were trump's lawyers are set to appear in Sacramento Today regarding their new California presidential tax transparency and Accountability Act that will require him to release his taxes to appear on the California primary ballot their attacks Bingo. They've definitely got to be a game and I don't understand why he's suing there because he's he's canceling primaries and other states. So why does he even want a PRI- like why does he care yeah yeah and sorry. I'm in Lawsuit Bingo but yeah I guess. He has an attack sausage too. He's got like thirty. Four hundred lawsuits going round yeah yeah. Can you ask God to imagine that the only thing standing between us learning things things that would make him. Indictable is just this one effort. is a really great thought. I hope that this is all he has and that he's going to countersue and he's GonNa lose and everything's GonNa be okay. Well we finally exposes the fraud and criminal that is yeah and the good news I think in in the DA case here at at least is that doesn't go to the Supreme Court the DC circuit it it goes to the State Court and the New York State Supreme Court Right. That's it says under state jurisdiction which is is great for pardon purpose not only pardoned purposes but just they're much nine dining is sitting president their courts and they're more fair courts why because trump can't stack the New York State Court. You're right so we think these things all the time but just hearing it all together. It's like yeah. The states are kind of more powerful in this case and I I take them for granted every day last week as Democrats have always been against states having too much individual power because they tried to keep slavery. That's truly huge history. It stinks. That's what racists argue was that what the civil war was fought over states rights compromise forget. It was the three fifths compromise compromise. You remember that. Oh we didn't compromise enough of Color three-fifths of a person isn't a good enough compromise ways ways to like have these code words. I mean I know it's called on a dog whistle politics like this different lingo for for what they really mean yeah every listening bullshit. I listened to the sixteen nineteen per incredible right yeah that first episode do Abe Lincoln not as much of a hero as we all told you about that whole project project go yeah yeah and so much about like the menstrual which is funny phrase for this but the black face musical well era minstrels Mistral yeah. I think like Menstrual Cycle. I'm like yeah blood in different totally different but yes ending the same yeah yeah same squeamish feeling inside. Ah I really do think it's crazy. How like Black Music is American. Music is like I said it in the show and and it just boils down to a really weird Dr Time for even black artists like they did black face when they were black and that was a transitional period America just has to always find a way to feel better about things when they're transitioning. Did they tie that into the childish Gambino video they did not but what a missed opportunity. There's a big part of that. I mean digress great great series and blessing yeah well. No I was just a surprise not surprised as wrong word. WHO's I'm not surprised. I didn't learn this in K. twelve but you only here you know that a honest emancipated slaves right. That's all you hear you don't hear about the fact that when they go over in this podcast is that that was almost like a scare tactic to get the south. Stay on totally just so messed up it was a bluff. They called rain yeah and then also I don't know why the last episode which is my favorite. I loved everything they cover it. Actually the last was about health care for black people and that was a whole different thing but with the music episode which was my favorite they discussed how motown the record label came out of the menstrual aprons at the MINSTREL era in Stroll Men's ministry Australian Yeah Minstrel yet menstrual. Yeah Yeah I'm saying basically motown was the response to that. It was black people owning their own voices and saying you're making fun of you know who you think I am. I'm GonNa tell you who I am and it came out like swaying like motown like we know motown. That was a response to to black face music. I did not know that you didn't realize they were so close back to back. Who knew it because we we tend to be taught that racism ended millennia a go and the slaves were freed forever ago and everyone's been gotta have the same rights since forever ago and so when you think Oh you know that was right then and they overlapped lapped and people are still alive that were around that era. It's it's very it's very eye opening totally totally and so yeah I if you haven't checked out route sixteen nineteen. You definitely need to take a look at it. a lot of fans or one six one nine. I think is what they're six thousand nine hundred okay. Is that what they're calling the year. When I first heard it they were just saying at one six one nine and oh they must have switched. It sounds like the beginning of my mother's multiple hosts. You'll hear like different perspectives and it's really interesting yeah. It's really really well. PUT The island in the white. People people kind of super innovative form of journalism doing hats off the New York Times for that one and the judge Roger Stone's owns case has made a ruling on stones motions to suppress evidence and to compel compel production of certain other evidence but the ruling has been filed under seal because it's based in part on unseal information. There's nothing more on this but I can guess I think stone wants to suppress certain parts of the mole report but likely wants to get his hands on the same kind of materials that Sydney pals asking for an AFL in case I imagine the Amy Berman Judge Jackson if you're nasty who has read the unredacted stone material will not give him irrelevant shit and she's but but so I think she'll partially dismiss or fully dismissed the motion but my beans are on a partial granting on a partial denial allowing him to have access excess to some relevant parts of the redacted report but she's certainly not going to hand everything over to him so again beans on a partial denial partial grant both sides have until September twenty third to object to an unsealing feeling of her opinion cool all right so we could see that next week. Yes you you guys. Take your horoscope Amanda. That's what's up now. We'll get get into it. Yes yes I read one shitty horoscope those completely often as like ever again the EH check multiple sites and just keep looking for your bias. You've got to keep searching out there. Yeah you'll find. Do you find the right line. I used to write a horrible scope for a scene. It'd be like Oh you're in aries. Shut up. You can't play the drums that will get a real job. You suck funny or Gemini. Whoa calm down your fucking weird and two faced and I hate your face and then virgo you.

"For a younger public like the United States. There was genuine concern seeing where small r republicanism can lead. So it a time where the French were basically horrifying everybody Wilson was interested in moving the narrative away from the French version of democracy and something more in line with the ideals of John Locke John Quincy Adams would pick up the mantle of Wilson. And we'll continue to retake the narrative of the compact after being asked to speak in Plymouth on founders day Quincy Adams lead with the importance of the compact Quincy Adams was interested in taking the compact and Lena back to the days of Anglo Saxon England as something more peer he described the Norman conquerors as being tyrants in this movie is able to connect the. Compact back to English roots hence moving away from her. So and yet at the same time he manages to avoid Lincoln it to something directly British in nature, obviously, not wanting to give them that propaganda vantage back with compact later, the Mayflower compact is going to become a core piece of the Whigs anti Jacksonian rhetoric. We're going to cover all this in depth Zo don't stress too much right now about this. I'm just trying to gloss over to give you an idea of what's going on. To sum all of this up. This answer is this. The Mayflower compact finds it's important because different factions both domestic at abroad sought to use it as a tool of propaganda. The British wanted to use the compact further own purposes to show that the original pilgrims had actually been highly loyal supporters of the crown the Americans on the other hand wanted to show that the pilgrims were something entirely different. The contact was used to argue for different types of democracy, specifically as a tool to distance the young nation from the French form of democracy that had ended up embroiling Franson revolution. And then later it was used to rally gets Jacksonian ISM in the Mayflower compact became currency in this war of propaganda throughout this process. The Mayflower compact ended up becoming much more than it actually wasn't reality. The reputation remains to this day. The Mayflower compact continues to sit in a position where it is often taught as being an early example of. Constitutionalism. That is going to come to define the United States later on the last several minutes of this podcast of basically been a sneak peek at what will make significant chunk of future seasons. So don't stress too much about following along with the different political views or the different political philosophy. This is all incredibly interesting and truth be told is the driving force. Behind wise started this podcast in the first place. We are going to spend eight ton of time talking about the political views in place right after the formation of the United States. In fact, I suspect that we are going to spend nearly an entire season discussing these topics. So if you have absolutely no clue why the Whigs are anti Jacksonian just hang with me. I promise we're going to get there today was just a situation where I wanted to introduce where the mythology of the Mayflower compact formed, and it required me to jump ahead a little bit in our story. The Mayflower compact continues to stand as one of the key political documents in United States history. In so many ways it is presented as that first shot in what would come to define New England as the revolution approached. However, the reality is that the compact it self was really something that was created to ensure some level of cooperation in the new colony and solve several of the problems that the passengers had vowed upon landing outside the patent. The compact is a testament to the cooperation of the groups that did not see eye to eye. However, the comments are viable trumped everything as an opening salvo of radicalism in New England. The Mayflower compact does fall short the legend of the document is even born into Loyd eighteenth and early nineteenth century when multiple sides attempted to seize on the compact for propaganda reasons, it is through this battle to control the narrative of what the Mayflower compact actually meant that the compact itself is going to become part of the origin story of the future United States. And that is a position that it continues to hold up to this day and will likely. Continue to hold into the future. Next time. We are going to settle down in the new Khania Plymouth and look at what those first early years brought so with that I will see you back here in two weeks time when we usher are pilgrims off of the ship and onto the shores of Plymouth until then I hope you have a fantastic two weeks. And I appreciate all you who've taken the time to tune in. And listen to this podcast. Thank you.

"Hello. And welcome to the political history of the United States episode one point fifteen the Mayflower combat. Picking up from where we last left off two weeks ago, we had left our settlers hanging out as they began their journey across the Atlantic. This week we are going to pick up with our pilgrims as they make their way across the Atlantic to their new homes, we are gonna spend much of this week focusing on what is often seen as one of the first political documents formed in the North American colonies, specifically the Mayflower compact, the Mayflower compact is often portrayed as this early example of the democratic ideals that will come to find the struggles of the future United States today. I'm gonna focus on some of those early politics amongst the pilgrims. We are going to spend some time looking at the myth of the Mayflower compact and how it is portrayed today. We are going to look at the document itself. And what it did in reality. Finally, we're going to turn back to the Mayflower compact and tried to dissect where the legend surrounded it actually comes from. So then without further delay. Let's just dive right back into our story. Every single year thousands of American school children. Learn about the Mayflower typically around thanksgiving time, we'll Jamestown did proceed Plymouth buy some thirty years. It is the Mayflower that is often presented as being that inaugural trip to the new world for journey that is so central to the majority of the United States. We know shockingly little about it. In fact, most everything that we know about the journey itself comes from William Bradford's writing. And even then Bradford himself is surprisingly quiet on the journey. Ran into the conditions onboard. Bradford does make a brief mention of the combined group now aboard the Mayflower before discussing the general health aboard the ship. There is a mention this. He cygnus was a constant problem and Bradford as always takes the time to tell a charming tale of these special work of God's providence. I'm just gonna go ahead and quote Bradford directly here because frankly, he tells the story better than I ever could. And just a note, you might notice that over the next couple episodes. There is going to be a sharp. Crease in me reading quotes. This isn't really something. I plan to do long term. But when it comes to Plymouth, we are lucky enough to have two excellent primary sources we have Bradford's of Plymouth plantation, which is what I'm about to quote from. And we also have Bradford and Edward winslow's writing in more relations. So as I said don't be shocked when you start hearing an increasing number of quotes for me. I don't think this is going to be long term kind of deal. But let's use what we've got. Okay. Returning to William Bradford talking about conditions on the Mayflower. He says it was a proud and very profane. Young man, one of the seamen a lessee able body which made him all the more haunting e would always become acting on the poor people in their cygnus, cursing them daily with grievous exhortations and did not let to tell them that he hoped to help cast half of them overboard before they came to their journeys in and to make Mary with what they have. And if they were jelly reproved, he would curse and swear most. Bitterly. But it please God before they came half seas over to this young man with a grievous disease of which he died in a desperate manner. And so was himself. The first was thrown overboard, thus his curses light on his own head. And it was an astonishment to all his fellows for they noted. It it had to be the just hand of God upon him. So yeah, that's pretty uplifting story, I bring it up for a couple of reasons I it does give some insight into the state of things aboard the Mayflower. It clues us in that. There was some amount of disease on board. And that death was an actual risk. It's also a good insight into the group itself and gives a working idea of the inner thoughts of Bradford all in all gives us at least some picture of life and the tensions aboard the Mayflower beyond. Just some joyous. Talk of the ships leading jerk getting sick dine in being thrown overboard. Braford? Would also write about what you would probably expect. There's a lot of talk about the dangerous crosswinds seasick. Kness and the general misery that existed onboard Bradford routinely writes about how the settlers survived and kept going forward in the name of God. It is interesting to note that for the most part there isn't much talk about widespread, death and disease. So well, we know that at least one guy did succumb to illness. And it is probably not out of the question that the conditions on board were unless insanitary there does not really seem to be a widespread dying be on. However, there really isn't a ten that we know about the journey itself. Bradford spends only two pages reading about the Mayflower. However through him. We do get an idea of those conditions on November sixteen twenty the Mayflower encountered Cape Cod. Cape Cod was not in a no place upon its discovery. John Smith had founded and named Cape James, however, by the time pilgrim, Scott there the Cape Cod. Name was pretty much accepted. Fishermen had named the area for the large number of cod in the valuable fishing waters. Right off the coast, the journey full had taken sixty. Five days and had landed the pilgrims just in time to face a potential New England winter the first problem that the pilgrims had upon arriving is that they were in the wrong place. Now originally they had planned to set up camp closer to the mouth of the Hudson. Hosver they were a ways north of that. In fact, the settlers were moving towards the Hudson because they didn't actually hold a pattern to settle land in Cape Cod. The ship's captain Christopher Jones recognizing. This fact did attempt to make his way south to the mouth of the Hudson where they were supposed to be however would conditions of the passengers now declining dangerous and uncharted shores and uncooperative wind Jones made the call to return and settle Cape Cod to say that these settlers were upset about

"Hello. And welcome to the political history of the United States episode one point thirteen medical changes. This is our seventh episode dealing with Jamestown. And I don't know about you guys. But I am ready to move on to different frontiers. The good news is that after this week. That is just what we are going to do however before we can leave Jamestown for good. We need to go back and look at the developments in the colony politically as the colony begins to rapidly grow. The political situation begins to change we see the first forms of government. Come to the colony dri. This period, we are going to discuss the reasons for this. And what it meant for Virginia's a whole following the massacre of sixteen twenty two future. The Virginia company would quickly be drawn into question and by sixteen twenty four the company would meet its ultimate int-. We are going to discuss the change from the Virginia company to the crown Connie with that means for the future of the colony and the future of English colonization. By the end of today, we will be in a position to leave Jamestown behind no longer the struggling colony that we have seen through much of these episodes. But rather a self sufficient Connie that would provide the early base of power in the English North American colonies. We have discussed previously that following the starving time. We see a period of near Marshall oughta go ver in Virginia. We talked about this. If you weeks back when we saw that these new laws have been put into place over with time. A somewhat more relaxed attitudes spread throughout the colony following the end of the first Anglo powder war things Virginia had become relatively peaceful and prosperous for the English with the college being on more stable footing, it proved to be much easier to back down from the previously. Strict rules when Samuel Argyle arrived in the colony take his turn as governor in sixteen seventeen he found that the colony head once again become neglected our goal tried to retain control and issued a new set of stricter laws now over the colonists. Quickly showed their dislike for this following a period of drought after his arrival colonists begin launching accusations at Argyll for embezzling from the stores. Not wanting to let things get out of control yet. Again, the English sent Lord Delaware back free second time, Lord, Delaware, despite all of his efforts really never found that North America agreed with him that much this. I'm however instead of remaining sickly his time in the colony Lord, Delaware, which is go ahead and die on the journey over despite these problems, However, James him was continuing to thrive during this time when captain Yardley return for his second stint, his clone you'll governor and he had been the one who had been replaced by our goal in the first place. The Connie was getting ready to enter into a period of massive growth by this point. The view of the clinic had changed Jason was no longer seen as a place that was simply there to split the local resources of Jamestown become an outpost of England located in the foreign land no longer satisfied with economic gain alone. Virginia was a foothold on the new world a springboard for the English into further endeavors and colonization. One of the problems of the Connie, however, is that his become apparent by the middle part of the sixteen teens that despite relative stability within the colony the population had begun to stagnate is sixteen sixteen there were only three hundred twenty four people living in the colony which is actually slightly down from the years before in sixteen eleven part of the problem is that while the colony had become much more stable. That's the -bility came at the expense of harsh rule from Thomas gates. This means that the stability of the colony was coming at the expense of these harsh living conditions. We have talked about the new laws in the colony and that the colony was essentially under martial law, and it's probably not too shocking that this isn't something that anybody was super excited about the colony was also at this time facing a labour crisis the injured servants who had come over back in sixteen o seven. We're now the end of their period denture. Well, not everybody. I as we move past sixteen fourteen more and more people will begin to earn their freedom. This. This poses a serious issue for the Virginia company, therefore as they are going to face crisis and making sure that people remained within the colony and in just head back to England. A secondary problem existed in the system that the English put in place in sixteen twelve to try to drive more people into the colony in the first place. If you recall in sixteen twelve by making minimum investment in the colony you could have one hundred acres of land. The problem though, is that the Virginia company didn't really have the land offer to fix this problem. The Virginia company turned Edwin send us send us had been one of the initial investors in the Virginia company, and though he would never personally come to Virginia. He always strapped to support the colony from the ground back in London. Well, go any was certainly more stable the task fell to set is to take the Connie to its next face to do this send us hope to make the population of Jamestown more self sustaining send us believe that by increasing the number of people in the colony that it would also move the Connie closer to financial security. Well, stability existed profitability was still. A serious issue for the Virginia company tobacco had become their cash crop. But maintaining the colony was still not really a profitable endeavor. Now, send us knew that the Virginia company did not have the financial ability to entice people to come to colony. Instead, what he did was offer those willing to travel to Virginia special administrative and judicial rights, send us was also actively trying to change the balance in the colony today, the colony has been overwhelmingly male under the leadership of sadness, you start to see more women make their way to the colony. Likewise, Santa's also increased the number of artisans coming over to the colony the hope was that by diversifying the colony's population. You're going to be able to draw even more settlers there. The most influential change during this time. However was the introduction of the Virginia head right system knowing that the shareholders in the company needed some kind of benefit as cash dividends weren't really in the cars at the moment sends introduced the concept of the head right in Virginia. The head rate system instead of being a dividend in cash would provide colonists with a dividend of one hundred acres of land for those who had come to the colony since sixteen sixteen at their own expense. A grant would be given a fifty acres plus an additional fifty acres for each person. They pay to come across the Atlantic as an effort to increase the holdings of the Virginia company. The decision was made that the Len given out would be unplugged separated by approximately ten miles now recall from last week. This is going to be a really big deal. When we start talking about the massacre of sixteen twenty two if you'll recall the distance between the plus is going to make the attack by shakin. Oh that much. More devastating with the growing number of land claims. The decision was also made advant the call into four boroughs.

"Hello. And welcome to the political history of the United States episode one point twelve the collapse of the power didn't confederacy. We've always begin this week. I want to take a quick moment to correct the mistake that I had made last week f you very end of the last episode. I had made a comment in literally the last sentence of the episode that we were going to address the powered and Indians fighting the Virginia Indians this week. That is not what we're going to talk about. We're going to talk about the powder and tribes facing off against the Virginia settlers, not the Indian. So that was a mistake on my part. And I am very sorry for that. We have spent nearly three months in Virginia and between this episode and our next episode. We are going to get ourselves into a place where we can leave our Virginia settlers to their own devices for a while. After this week. We are going to move our story north to New England and begin our examination into the Puritans. But before we can do that we need to look at the changes in the colony as they close out the teens and move through the sixteen twenty's less weekly. So importance of tobacco at help secure the future of the colony. We talked about changes to the law them, the colony and much more th-wa tearing direction, but did help cure some of the critical problems from the early years of Jamestown. Like, we saw the importance of the peace between the English and the power to people following sixteen thirteen well, the colony enjoyed its first period of relative stability during this time. The stability is not something that's going to last forever. The Ghani is no longer in danger of failing. However that does not mean this struggles don't still exist. This is going to be exemplified by the powered in sixteen eighteen as we will discuss while powered and had pursued repulsive containment his brother opus shinkin, oh is going to take a much more aggressive stance towards the English settlers. This is going to lead us to an event that would forever change the relationship between the English and the Indians specifically the massacre of sixteen twenty two as you will see throughout today. This is going to be an event that is going to have a profound impact all McCollum moving forward as well. As for the future of the Virginia company following the massacre, the dynamics between the powder and people and the English will never return to what they want had been the powder and trips were clearly in a place of decline, whereas English were settling growing at an extraordinary rate. All of this is going to automatically lead us to the collapse of the once powerful pouting confederacy today that is the story I plan to tell and this episode is going to wrap up the portion of our story dealing with the powered and people following the end of the first Anglo powder war sixteen thirteen relations between the English and the Indians had begun to improve. It is through this piece of the English grabble to begin expanding outward and focus on growing crops such as tobacco beyond the usefulness of p. However, powered and had always taken a pragmatic view of the English poet recognized the importance of good relations with the English as they could operate as a check against his enemies, and we have discussed this as some depth already. If you recall, this is a relationship that helps explain why powder was willing to assist the English with food in the first place. However by this time, you may have noticed that powdered has been part of our story for a really long time. We started talking about him back when we discussed Roanoke from the moment of the first settlers Leonard in sixteen seven powered and have been a defining factor for the colony. It is not a coincidence that drained terrible winter of sixty nine sixteen ten Paladin had chosen not to provide the colony with food despite this over powder had never really been bent on the destruction of the English. He appears to understood the power of the English and had wanted to gain them as an ally for his own use. Pouted had yes sought to contain. However, he never thought to destroy. But as I mentioned above pounded is no longer a young, man. And in April of sixty eighteen powder was in his early seventies. After decades in power. It is time for pound into leave our story drain April of sixteen eighteen powder and dies following the powered in the confederacy came under the leadership of his brother over shank it out over shinkin was not pout in which is something that is going to become appeared in the years to cop or as pellet and had been pursuing a policy of containment over shinkin show, a staunchly against English expansion and still had hopes of driving them out of Jing entirely. If you'll recall from few weeks ago, we had discussed the possibility that ocean can was actually gone the ways the same on the ways they gave out in the advice that he should kill all the English the same down the wheezy would take place in that slaughter of the Jesse wits years before. Now, you have no idea what I'm talking about. Please go check out. Episode one point six for some more information on this. But the quick explanation is that there is some thought that Don the weekend.

"Hello. And welcome to the political history of the United States episode. One point ten the starving time. Less time. We left off discussing those first several years of the Jamestown colony the first several years were conflated inside a majority of the new settlers die due to the harsh conditions and at the same time the relationship between the settlers and local powered and Indians was tented best and downright hostile at worst. By the new sixty-nine? The Connie was approaching what will become the single worst time in the history of the Jimmy Connie up to that date today. This period has become known as the starving time, and is going to signify the low Mark for the colony John Smith by the same had left the colony and relations with powered into becomes so bad that is John Ratcliffe skinned alive in December of sixty nine combined with the ongoing issues of survey shin disease is going to see the population of the colony plummet the stirring time very nearly marks. The end of the Jamestown colony the colonists. At one point abandoned, the colony and make their way to ships having had enough trying to survive in Virginia. Of course today, we know that they don't end up actually leaving in fact, following the speed the colony will very slowly at times, turn the corner and begin moving towards something that resembles viable settlement for today. We are going to spend our time looking at the starving time. Specifically, I wanna look at three primary aspects. I we're. Going to look at the traditional telling of the story of that winter of sixty-nine sixteen ten what were the causes? How bad did it get and how did it? Resolve second. We are going to discuss the realities of the starving time. I plan on looking at the question of how accurate is that traditional telling? And what problems may exist with it? Finally, we're going to look at the end result. The starving time is going to have a major effect on the colony in a number of ways, and we are going to examine how these changes moving. Forward are going to completely change the direction of the Regina company and the colony as a whole. I want to start this week by looking at the winter of sixty-nine sixteen ten we're going to Japan by looking at that traditional telling before doubling back looking at some of the causes in many ways is difficult to get a great idea of what occurred during that winter the sources during the timer thin, and there is something to be said about a sense of cessation. Listen that's going to creep into the eventual telling of the event on the ground. The best source is going to be the colonies acting President George Percy Percy would write about the surveys in the terrible conditions at Jamestown during that winter. I'm going to read a quote from perceives book a true relation of the proceedings and occurrences of moment, which have happened emerging from the time, sir. Thomas gates was shipwrecked Bermuda anno sixteen o nine until my departure out of the country, which was anno domini sixteen twelve and yeah, that's an awesome book title sound super exciting, quote is as follows now all of us are Jamestown began feeling that sharp prick of hunger, which no. Man, truly describe, but which he have tasted the bitterness. They're up a world of miseries and suit as the sequel will express to you in so much that some to satisfy their hunger. Have rubbed the store for which I have caused them to be executed then having fed upon the horses and other beasts long as they lasted we were glad to make shift with vermin as dogs, cats, and rats, and mice always fish that came to net to satisfy the cruel hunger. As the boot shoes or any other leather some could come by. And those being spent in devoured somewhere force to search the woods feed upon serpents and snakes and to dig the earth for wild and unknown routes where many of our men were cut off and slain by the savages and now famine beginning to ghastly impale in every face that was nothing to be spared to maintain life and to do those things which seem incredible as to dig up dead corpses out of graves into eat them and. Some have looked up the blood which have fallen from their week fellows and amongst the rest. This was the most lamentable that one of our colony murdered his wife rip the child out of her womb and threw it into the river. And after that chop the other pieces salted her for his food. The same not being discovered before he had eaten her thereof for the cruel. Inhumane fact, I judged him to be executed the knowledge of the debate enforce from him by torture having hung by his thumbs with the weight at his feet a quarter of an hour before he would confess the same. George Percy was the best source on the ground at the time. Other information we get from the events come from John Smith's writings and sixteen twenty four. And in a moment, I'm going to share this account with you. But I wanna give a pair of warnings on it. I I Jon Smith left a few months earlier in the fall of sixty nine. So he was back in England in the winter of sixty nine sixteen ten rolled. Round. Likewise. He is writing this account is sixteen twenty four a full fourteen years after the events actually took place. Now, we're gonna talk more in a few minutes about the problems with the sources, including Smith. But it's something that I wanna be front about Smith wrote in the general history of Regina New England in the summer isles that neigh so great was our famine that a savage we Slough Mberi the poor sort took him up again and ate him. And so did divers one another boiled stewed with roots and herbs and amongst the rest to kill his wife powdered her and eat him part of her before it was known for which he was executed as he will deserved now. Whether she was better roasted boiled or carbonaro, I do not know, but of such a dishes, powdered wife, I have never heard of this was that time which still to this day. We call the starving time. It were to vile to say and scarce to be believed what we endured. But the Cajun was our own for want of providence industry and government and not the Baroness and defect of the country. As is generally supposed for till then in three years for the numbers were landed us, we have never from England provision efficient for six months, though, it seemed by the Bill of lading sufficient sent us such a glut is the seat and said goodfellas the Mariners we as little tasted of great proportions cintas as they of our want miseries yet notwithstanding the ever over swayed and ruled the business though, we endured all that is said and chiefly lived on what this good country naturally. Afforded yet. Had we been even paradise itself with these governors. It would not have been much better with us yet. There was amongst us. Who had they been the government as kept Smith appointed? But that they could not maintain. It would surely have. Kept us from those extremes of misery this intend as more would have supplanted us all with death before we go any further. If you're wondering what does just myth mean when he asked was carbonaro that translates roughly into what she barbecued. So yes, that would in fact be just a little bit of cannibalism humor from our good friend John's Smith between the accounts of Smith emptied is possible to get a sense of devastation that the winter of sixty nine sixteen

"Welcome to the political history of the United States at one point seven Jamestown beginnings. Good news guys after spending the first several weeks messing around in the always intrigued world of sixteenth century Europe. It is finally time to get to the real story as much fun as we've had bouncing around through the political economic and religious changes Europe. We are finally ready to begin looking at the first group of English settlers to cross the Atlantic and settle in Jamestown before we get into that. However, I wanna give a rundown of what the foreseeable future the podcast is going to look like the popular story of the United States is that of a ragtag bunch of colonies that join together to fight the mighty British army. However, that is something that doesn't really exist right away. The first colony should be seen as more of a collection of independent knows acting separately from each other. In order to approach this. I plan to work through the colonies one by one looking at the unique factors each specific group making their way to America. I think dressing the major colonies one at a time is going to be the most effective way for me to move through the rest of the season. The general plan is to move through each colony and get it up to read around sixteen fifty before moving onto the next after moving through the colonies, I will have a few episodes to tie everything together and address a few other subjects that I wanna hit that is going to basically take us to the end of the first season. Now with all that said we are going to begin this week with the first of several episodes looking at that first colony founded in sixteen seven Jamestown would become the first permanent English colony in the Americas. For thirteen years Jamestown stood alone as the only English settlement in America before the Puritans. Join them with their settlement in Plymouth. The founding of Jamestown is a story of failure. Misery death starvation or an ultimately after facing cataclysm after cataclysm a moderate amount of success. The story of Jamestown is one that will see the con- you become the largest tobacco export or in Europe. But only after surviving disease and war with the Indians and starving that became so severe that. The people were forced to turn to cannibalism. These are just a few of the things that we are going to explore over the next several episodes and today, we are going to begin the lane the groundwork for all of that. Everybody in the United States is taught that the pilgrims. Spoiler alert, by the way travel across the Atlantic to the Americas to avoid religious persecution in many ways, this is held up as a banner establishing the freedoms that would become synonymous with the future. United states. The decision to go to James is fueled by the single most common denominator in all of colonization the hope of funding riches. To begin this week. I want to look at the reasons why people suddenly found themselves boarding ships in heading across the Atlantic. What were their motivations? What were they looking for by looking at what motivated the first settlers to good Virginia is going to tell us a lot about the colony and its future. And this is going to be something we keep coming back to future episodes as we move through the history of James ten in Virginia as a whole today when people look back on the history of the United States. There seems to be a tendency to focus more on the pilgrims, the founders of Plymouth, then there are the founders of Jamestown. In fact, there seems to be among many, a general belief that the pilgrims came across on the Mayflower were the first to settle the future United States, and yet Lino that not to be true for Gina had been settled more than a decade before and affect by sixteen twenty was well on its way towards stability. The question therefore becomes why is Jamestown often forgotten when we look at the establishment of the English colonies in North America. That is one of the questions we are going to be looking at over the next several weeks as we explore Jamestown. What makes the Jamestown settlers different than the New England settlers? To begin this week. I wanna start to look at the conditions under which Jamestown was founded. And who the settlers were last week we discussed English attempts to colonize North America at the Roanoke Connie, well that colony mysteriously disappeared. Also, marked the end of English colonization efforts up until sixteen o seven or the failure of the Roanoke. Colony may have had some minimal effect on the future colonization of North America. The real issue was going to be ongoing English Spanish war the war between England Spain had been a pretty good job of depleting English treasury. However would James the first now empower he quickly brought an into the war with the Spanish through the treaty of London. This means that the funds needed to launch a colonization effort were at last available following the end of the war. There was also a new reality for the English came two privateer. If you recall from episode one point three privateer in was tantamount to state sponsored piracy this become a big deal in the sixteenth century as Spanish. Out to such a huge lead in establishing thriving and more importantly profitable colonies in the Americas. Less time we talked about the devastating effect that privateer in had on the Spanish the easier solution for European powers that were not the Spanish Portuguese listed, turn towards private teary. Instead of forming your own colonies you'd instead attacked the Spanish ships still their goods and sell them as your own backing Europe, the English had just finished up a war with Spain and knew the continued use of private jeering was likely to lead to another war. So specifically in the treaty of lended, what of the requirements from Spain wasn't agreement that England would back off of their privateer practices, at least to get the Spanish be effective. Inappropriate against the Spanish merchants did not reduce however English interest in the potential profit and the items to be found in the Americas. The logical solution therefore was for the. English to auntie colonization effort of their own. As mentioned above with the war over there was a sensor plus a funds in England. This is not to mention that with the war over. There was now the manpower necessary for colonization efforts to be made the end of the were also means that the English had the ability to branch out keep in mind that one of the consequences of the first Benesch armada was that it prevented the English efforts to resupply. Their colony in Roanoke with the war over. However, this concern has been completely mitigated. Economically desire to colonize. The Americas will grow quickly in the years following the end of the war. Shortly. After the end of the war, you begin to see the first joint stock companies for the specific purpose of colonizing, the Americas for these companies are going to spring up with the stated intent of going to the Americas fighting the abundant natural resources and sending them back to England hopefully for profit. Colonisation was inexpensive undertaking to say, the least, and this is going to help lead to the rise of these joint stock companies, it joint-stock company is simply a type of corporation were several investors come together pool their money in order to fund expedition, this has obvious advantages over a single or otherwise small group of investors. It was really expensive to start a colony, and it's always gonna be a long term game. While obviously everybody hope that the new Connie would be founded by the city of gold and conquer the natives all within a couple of weeks. The investors know that this is not a realistic expectation. And beyond that, it was not a huge secret that establishing colonies was a task that came with considerable risk the English investors at a minimum would have been aware of earlier colonization efforts at Roanoke, and what happened there investors would have likely. Understood the profit was going to be slow in coming and knew they should not expect a quick return with this mind. The emergence of the joint stock company makes sense. A joint-stock company is made up of a large group of investors, which means that the risk is going to be more spread out the advantage for the colony is that by having more investors. There is going to be far greater source of resources available which in turn gives the Connie a better chance serving. For the individual investor. There was some real risk involved colonies had been lost previously. And there was no promise of these colonies would survive. However, the hope was that this could be a long term investment. And that if the Connie disavow live, there would be a significant amount of profit on the other side in sixteen six King James issued a Royal charter for the formation of two joint stock companies. These companies were the north Virginia company of London and these south Virginia company of London. The companies were giving a man to make habitation into that part of America, commonly called Virginia.
