Ep. 1446: Where we feel a draftYou probably have have better things to do, but if you don't you should be watching Discovery Channel's nude survival show "Naked and Afraid." A full report plus the strangely specific mental disorder hitting young programmers and yet another AirBnB horror...
Hey what's up everyone it's Monday march 17 2014. Is the 404 show on CNET. Thanks for tuning in on Jeff Bakalar. RE on the -- what's going on everyone hope you had. Literally an awesome weekend. I sure did I know these guys did is well -- agree weekend awesome. And we was in town my little brother came to visit me for the first time in New York keep you guys learned a lot together yet definitely definitely -- some memories what does he stopped. In the east village. Have you seen that show is set to George Clinton thing that works. -- -- hear a song called stomp. Com that's not notably George Clinton rules and a great reference -- -- -- when they like play -- like doesn't yet that's like the street music. But bring in The Who has been I am running captaincy bright and minus the -- well yeah. We think it's pretty good way definitely recommended -- -- -- -- twelve year old in town that you need to entertain from Ottawa share. I'm new school -- curious to know what people think about New York the first time that the companies but that was his first time first time ever on May indeed lose it was you -- wound. He. Was asking me a lot about why everybody was wearing green hats and throwing -- on the street yeah that's the that's -- -- Little monkey wrench to throw into the hole yeah experience. Apple's leopard can't -- Justin yeah right oh my god. -- -- -- Enjoy the beer they -- career and his Jake on Greenpeace used to I would love to -- explained to him like all know usually people aren't. Like that every weekend -- it's tough because I live in the east village to people are like that imagine how every weekend -- do when they're not doing green. That's -- -- changes but -- It's always kind of the same scene every Sunday morning. But yes I am not satisfied just kind of ignore those people really need to talk about what -- I would love to experience New York again. First time -- You know I can't I don't even have a memory emulated I think we're all sort of -- New -- now -- -- -- to go to see the statue of -- What we -- on the -- everybody was sort of you know looking back behind the ferry to take pictures of the city as -- -- going right towards the -- island -- And doubt be my girlfriend were the only ones that were like sitting in our -- just like. This this and click the biggest -- anything you can -- serious I rules -- really is just it's it's nothing although I mean. I don't care how long you've -- year. You can still -- in that view the thing about the statue of liberty is its only cool to see the statue of liberty from Manhattan. It's not that cool once you get there because then you go into the statue of liberty and you just looking back at Manhattan right -- can't see it once here on the island. And -- too big yeah. So I don't know I mean it is totally too risky thing to do blood pressure. In the spirit of my -- first time here for you guys man yes and nice little -- swallow that jaded this warrantless. Humor the little -- are you jaded Ariel Nunez yeah the least amount of time it doesn't take long and he's hidden value and here was like a year and a half now almost -- -- -- and I was planning on your reaction of -- airline but PX I I vaccine. Had to go to Times Square like three times this month call because all my friends -- though and are finalized dancing in town they wanna go -- and -- -- you wanna be like -- Debbie downer but I hate I hate Times Square. I'm sure there's more there's a a bigger sort of tourist trap that. I would think is -- let -- in Times Square looks like every other towards the right there's nothing to do there. All -- when he did you go to some borrowed or lay off I'm glad you mentioned that -- to bring that up watt system borrow filed for Chapter Eleven bankruptcy assorted whose notes as -- -- so all this -- starting with the -- location -- -- shut down all gonna lose sleep over that the last in my I had to bar as it was over hurricane sandy uses all the only thing to eat -- city's -- that lasts without being refrigerated and I like eating bad -- right. So -- you can do about it but no more -- borrow. Even without that intense was just don't know you can do yes there at the lights in the -- advertisements for how long have and that's it and then we do I know you do there. There's a naked cowboy Q&A part of this -- there's the reason alone anti Semitic Elmo read today that yells things yeah. You take photos of him only anti Semitic so I think so yeah he was arrested last year for yes -- a little elbow Hitler mustache if you flip it and that's still prints of some of their press writer. And a little there is to do a transcript says there's two things you just surrounded by advertisement in slow for a studio you can do in times were bumping into people -- -- investigative ever catch colds -- problem totally yeah that's about it. I'm gonna get it. More would you take somebody for first time New York experience that is that the things like -- restaurants. You know you didn't do Peter -- things -- -- it wherever you Michael and take -- little you know. Less traveled spots and walk in the park a little bit you know again there's so much to do. There's so many things not to do. You -- top of the rock data that is well but neither of the Empire State Building right now it's basically -- -- -- what you have to with -- -- -- Brothers do none of us to remember first time. I can't -- those aborted served again I have the from Mario has that in just can't remember all of that all right so speaking of the weekend. I I get back on site up like yesterday from skiing and and you know you're tired you just want to venture -- -- some good TV. So I start true detective would have one really doesn't it rallies are now I'm loving every second -- two episodes in -- on love and it then. We turn it off to take a break -- and I don't know I guess the TV was -- like Discovery Channel who now have you heard. Of need -- -- afraid. Newton. I have cattle only heard enough of naked and afraid homeland is. Overhaul leave. God you fool how many episodes of -- 2. Which is which is a lot okay -- Ariel -- none of these things you because you know you're talking about Jessica and do a little bit homer care. There's -- show. On discovery. Where they just fine to move people just to crazy people one man 11 man woman they find these two people. They put them in some remote location a jungle a jungle and highly and a rainforest. And for three weeks. They have did you survive. -- gay -- no clothes yet no food. They get to bring one item. And that's it and that's the show -- and -- the one item part they can put that one item is like this is like a hatchet no one ever brings like. One pressure brought suntan lotion for sure -- but like they don't that's it. And the whole. It's and they don't have been sailing the appeal I'm sure they get -- don't get paid at all there's no -- that's not only -- -- there's only survivor where there's a bounty rare the last person that stays on the island it's just out test your might -- put I would imagine they get compensated for their time that's not disclosed by all I would imagine some ED -- There's no -- tell you don't do this voluntarily although people seem to be doing it -- and the whole show is like. Are these people gonna die that's really tomorrow -- watch these people almost die but they -- you did. According to the show I'm on how produced it is or how much -- -- -- raw but they definitely get. Music hypothermia. And -- they all lose a ton of weight it's really cool I like. About it -- -- -- It's one of the funniest things I've ever seen on TV because they all get hurt. And they all. It's it's. It's it's amazing because Howell who survive. This long. Before we had reality shows -- being and that's what I love about to hold all this does cause I know -- funny stuff to say about this its -- just like. That's it we've reached the end of what we can view in reality TV it started just like about this is this -- -- -- -- -- People on an island with the camera crew with our crew that's like in a hotel it has VMware -- wearing clothes and wearing those drinking water at a bottom definitely it is so amazing they've these them right away they freak out and they don't know what to do. Yeah and I have to take off their clothes in the beginning of the episode which is the worst part -- it is strip down naked. But it's not really big deal because they're constantly on the verge of -- break the whole like the only ones basically yet like the way they edit the show they basically -- once for 21 days you could survive all I guess only eating once in twenty and 21 day idea of what you can't do -- survive without water -- these -- forced to do the most drastic things imaginable enough. Okay and is they they're forced to do the most stressed that things imaginable and they basically go to like. The most disgusting disease reading dirty water a couple of and they still surgery can. Well water I think you're ever do this and they all get sick and they'll get like a 109 fevers develop these bizarre -- -- view like you know conditions. And half of them have to tap out which means you know the producing an apologetic or would you like technology in the so it's just like get him -- -- I'm watching the video right now and you could definitely tell -- their nude. But they don't show. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Disgusting is that you wouldn't normally think about when dealing with community in the jungle like for example they talk about getting takes in their eyeballs in their peoples deaths -- -- gonna ever believed to value -- -- -- anyway and big guy talks to lady takes and -- All up. In the Baghdad. Area. Crazy crazy -- the -- -- only -- to episode that I watched I don't know if you saw this one. The girl talks about how the only thing she was allowed to ask the producers fork was -- tampons. And that's -- me that's not fair debate that's not my -- are the rules are the rules I mean if you're really trying to get down -- the -- method yet people that lived in the jungle than you could enhance. Will this on the -- week where you like you could working perfectly yeah right I mean like come on our if you know your cycle -- -- let's. Let's play ball here today -- -- mosquito but this guy had in his but there was. It's just so amazing but the -- doesn't sell amazing it's so amazing that -- that I can't believe they've found enough people to agree to do that sort of talk more about the tenth on things -- I'm not done with that yes the most the most to scan through part of that is the you've -- the Tampa area. But then. She's naked says you -- well -- I get -- you're gonna -- don't. Don't like a relief from -- it's. Anyway there -- -- letter. And there and a and daring you soon. Well you know and this is tempting just simple just say it's just so it's loaded ready to sell unintentionally hilarious because -- -- guy. He's just. He's got hatchet right and he's like you -- machete and he's like. And some of them are amazingly resourceful -- -- these elaborate hots and they really do an amazing job of finding shelter you know buildings up to. And then there's -- -- this guys like oh well he's like he's -- of the -- -- -- -- -- -- -- help let me know -- it comes over and he's just like -- a huge chunk out of and then say I love this it's this -- yeah it was so funny I don't like you we are. Helpless in these areas at the like that like -- -- this this guy and a -- the rules a little bit I recommend Michael plant mandated yeah instead -- -- on his away and it's not you haven't seen the show. Watch it. And you will either turn it off right away -- -- Laugh so hard. You peel and I think it produces have just done a really good job of hiding the fact that there assisted kids and young survivor when it first came out in the whole reality genre and -- is coming out. They would always look really well kept. Radical women had like perfectly combed hair of their little a little trees that make up every now right right right right -- -- is okay right but yeah -- in -- afraid they are. Ugly from being used to be very attractive people but because of the surroundings they're covered in during the just look like super -- It just shows you how amazing it is that we've survived this long. Clearly when you have like thousands of years of of you know civil evolution happening where. People get. -- -- -- I just think about how crazy must have been when this was a real think and there are always that we might died and I will know you're not gonna die and there's always people there and there's always people that might help you out worst case scenario. It's amazing this one did built an amazing raft that -- -- that they freaking floated down the Amazon it is amazing. Still -- culinary institute about the future when people look back at the decline in civilization out like why are you write that down when do we start hurting ourselves and you can see the evolution from survivor and I was the first one -- -- it was like a series of other ones. -- -- had I think on the Discovery Channel there was man woman wild. Where do you know that -- man and wife. -- load that they're not -- but there in the -- together and they bicker but then after survive so and then now this I think what what's the. -- mean that's gonna be after the off itself and -- well I feel like ten revealed it's like no you can't. Hunger Games like real life Hunger Games yeah that's gonna be actual vertically actual. Let's throw want to kids in -- in the stadium and you -- YouTube TV's in the shady and internship program it's like who's generally yeah the idea. I think its its ideology anyway now -- shares now. I just had a share that because. I had no idea stuff like this was on TV and we came across it just by chance that's. All Discovery Channel is now. Nobody discovers anything on that channel my hours discovered they -- and afraid if they survive remand and members wild dual survivors BC and -- you know that was really -- on my favorites and a ownership it's two guys. One is an ex military guy that all about destroying nature to get whatever you want -- going to -- to weapons of things to no no qualms about distributed through and the other guys and naturalist so this hippie guy with long hair. And this guy. He decided not to Wear shoes about twenty years ago to for the past twenty years. He hasn't been wearing shoes which makes sense I mean him because he wants to be closer nature so you know you could see those two conflicting. Personality personality and that it's off I just I'm sure people are listening to this -- -- like of course have heard of -- -- afraid. But for the people who have and it's not minutia or it's not new at all -- that's not like a third -- last night was the season premiere via. And that's I think maybe that's why we came across it I just I couldn't believe it. -- -- -- getting baptized and then I couldn't believe. Yeah it's it's for a bit and then this -- big huge who -- got super sick because he was so thirsty he just decided to drink water coming out of like. Of some you know yeah plants and yet -- he's like I'm gonna go for. It's just it's just -- that I'm sorry that you their crying in the Internet. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Is that they don't always. Like they don't always have to like stay where they are and some of these they have to get to an extraction point -- which could be like. Ten miles away no compass no compass does exactly give them a paper map in there like it's it's like yeah it's over there somewhere around there and from Alabama. I love it I love it allowed it to go a lot that will watch it if you hate yourself it no because it's good comedy -- really is they don't realize what they have here. They have a very funny how -- they don't really -- yes its whole areas for -- it's very very funny. Oh he's like well it's okay no -- -- like in his -- yeah it is they go what happened huge cut your leg off my. Besides this I think that's very funny because roof he said he signed his name is like I'm gonna do this are gonna go in the jungle yeah the good yeah there you go discovered his coworkers -- let him. -- that I'd love. I'd like to me and Memorial Day lets you pretty much all the is that -- out -- -- -- and and is that funny so bad. I right so let's talk about area B&B is this next story happened over the weekend and it's the first time we've talked about an inner being be rental going wrong. But I just taken up these stories because they're really funny they are they -- get old. They don't know and you'll continue renting their apartments out on -- DB after hearing these horror -- happens if you that was the whole idea it'll never happen in the exact that we're starting here come closer to home -- -- story is happened over the weekend in New York okay -- this is why you shouldn't if you live in New York rent your apartment that anybody an -- -- So the last and we talked about these stores in the show it was about that woman. And it was about a guy who can't -- to his apartment -- -- dudes and it being a massage a -- like a massage parlor. The -- at a rooming massage parlor where it came in and they relate -- deeds everywhere clown nose. Remember that lot of -- those weird -- they do with the calmness. This time around this is -- story of a guy named RE teen and I think that's I say his last name he rented out his place in New York City over the weekend. To a guy need dated. Quotations who say he was looking for a place to host its -- while they're in town fairway. Right. And so he meets up with David on Friday to hand over the keys. You know -- -- -- to got to keep your keys of this guy and it to stay in your apartment for a -- off this is I. And I'm on my my stomach is starting to channel yeah you go I know where this yoga that they -- -- on me -- can't -- -- dvd keys on Friday but he left. His bags at the house to go to dinner a path so he went to dinner -- RE did the guy who's who owns -- apartment right he went to dinner and they came back. But while he was in the lobby of his apartment picking -- bags he sought -- -- the tenant chair. And he kind of like you know -- on this -- dated and he overheard David saying quote they're shouting a -- So that's already kind of so inspectorate whose day what is getting shut down what's going on here. So he kind of got freaked out -- he went upstairs for David to go back up. The when he opened his door. This is what he saw smoke on behalf he's sol bags -- this -- is not so bad that way till I tell you about one what's. -- -- Then his apartment had been completely overturned yes. Bags of condoms and liquor lying around -- furniture completely it's true and out of place where it normally laws. And so he freaked out right and of course like any person would he went on ghoul. Which is what he should've done in the first place of course he went on to Google and searched for the name. And the email address in addition to the phone number that -- that -- provided. Right. Hand this is the first thing they came up it was a tweet. Saying and I came -- show the bottom picture adultery. But it was a tweet from the account called the black doctor Ruth. As twitter.com. Act much the mouth. It said. It's official the -- mouth will be at the BBW panty raid party and NYSE. Call this number for the location. Oh yeah my in his apartment was the locate obvious BBW panty raid party. You know what BBW's and you -- we're not gonna get into it -- There's no there's no cuss words and it's not suspects in cycles and fetish of Spanish big boned women yes yeah big beautiful those big boned. I mean both neither say yeah that's it exactly and -- it's a fetish for bigger -- it. So apparently there was a sex party going on this could use and -- did a little bit more research and this is the second tweet that he found this we can actually show. From this guy twin -- green which is the handle for David he's the promoter is a -- says tonight Manhattan -- best. At 17 avenue which is this -- All my -- I'd like. Still here -- this is sage charging covers to get a yeah. So it had already happened apparently. Or the pre party it happened either way they were a ton of condoms lying around that explains the damaged furniture -- package worth of content. -- the scary part about this is that he had a bunch of positive reviews stated he had positive reviews from people but yet supposedly spent the night at their apartments previously. So the feedback was good it was like it was a -- a first time subscribers -- -- he had just created the account so. You know are -- thought he was trustworthy. And you know luckily I mean there's really no. Silver -- to the story but air B&Bs damage control is really quick it's. Okay in what in what way they had the correct the -- immediately sent a locksmith out to his apartment to change the -- right -- -- -- argument -- the key who knows how many copies and or how their -- freak fest. Immediately change the locks then they compensated him they wired him some money. Which is pretty good I think they -- him like twenty something thousand dollars 23817. Dollars. It's pretty good that's either their insurance policy where it. And then I -- put -- up in a hotel for a week. The video on new furniture bright L I mean like what else -- I feel like 24 grannies -- out on the situation yet. Well the problem is that and this sort of untold story of ABB is that a lot of apartment renters people who own the apartment you know -- -- -- Are not okay with you you know basically sub letting her apartment for the weekend right so he's -- trouble with his management now -- is currently in a court case with his landlord. I -- -- kind of -- the first comment here on this article here from Concord just sums it all up it's it's it -- what everyone is thinking yeah. Maybe I'm just old put I think anyone who -- out their place on your BNP -- just at an insane yeah -- billion what is wrong with you that's your apartment -- home and you're gonna I would strangers you have an error when you're not around yes Q when did you Hannah and at least -- -- -- -- -- my apartment today everyone is an agreement with that. I mean I and again they were all like progressive in the internet's great blood -- is expensive and Brent is expensive in hotels are expensive but at the end of the day. Yeah now don't do this yet. I don't know who these people are that are renting out their apartments because. You know a lot like bootleggers nobody upload -- ever -- -- downloads and several that I know roses Leo's yet everyone I know just -- and stays in an ABB I don't know anybody actually -- out -- -- I would love you know let's let's give air -- -- the benefit of the doubt. And ask our listeners like. Are you. Someone who was rented out your place on -- -- the end and why do you do that you have security that can you add up to collect -- of the man who are you that you that the people who do this who are you yeah I wanna get to know you will ever be -- a -- a -- -- I've seen eloquent and up to Woodstock on forever thing in January and we -- a place -- kind of meant to the inner -- be it was like at a summer home. -- that that the only time it's -- -- it with you haven't extra place -- -- in your home home surely most people a lot of people owned places that they just rent out that I don't do anything else that's a that's a different situation. But for some like along going on vacation -- two weeks long gone a month we'll make money off my please -- yeah where I don't get it I also know some people that have of vacant -- sometimes you know if they live in an apartment with three rooms. They're gonna leave so the other two roommates will still sort of be there -- right after nation as a sex parties different situations that. I hate it does that studio come on like you gotta have eyes and that -- all the time I would nav reduced something like that it's and is it worth it how much money could you be possibly mean you could make a -- when I -- my friend that. Would host his apartment. -- -- -- And he would then try to find a date -- That he could spend the night actors you know the weekend there was never an outward from a few times and you'd actually like -- two pieces -- in New York if you studio apartment. He would charge the 202 tricky but the -- you can -- more probably but at that rate get a hotel. -- against him. Skeleton -- the -- -- -- to -- -- right and I just I have too many to many questions without reasonable answers now. That's -- are -- let's finish things up. It and then we have -- an email that I'm gonna try to get to -- our wall let's talk about one of the most popular jobs. For kids to get. Nowadays. And apparently I've -- over the weekend that job the job market for kids eighteen between one is an all time low they're more young people unemployed now. Then since world report Q does the by the I was getting at a college area. -- Right I feel like. Right now if you're young person if you're not taking both graphic design classes and computer programming classes. You do your -- I think those are the only two jobs I was having IT. And I T yet anything like -- in that area. So anyway on one of the lesser downsize a -- discussed -- of being a computer programmer although you could stand to make millions of dollars up a single iPhone app. The downside to being a program is that your at risk of -- -- developing a series of mental health. Diseases warmth. That some of which are -- specific that -- programmers get -- sense if you had a programmer in your life you should definitely listen up because. Being overworked is one of the easiest. Things you can contract -- beginner -- should -- so. This is an article on business insider and we're just now sort of starting to see the effects of -- over worked as a programmer. I don't really have any programming experience myself so forgive me in advance I don't explain these topics really well. But. I the idea -- explain in this business insider article is that. The first thing you can get if your programmer is called imposter syndrome that's not. In neat just to program in -- posthumously. Period up for you know media -- notable is that when Mikey -- Held captive and you fall in love -- -- -- star called subject well not that's not this is opposite here why would that apply to. -- -- you can view and -- access. The imposter syndrome is where you think that other colors around you. Actually have better skills -- you -- there more talented at programming. And that -- sort of posing as a really good prices again insecurities you can insecurity being developed from when you work in an industry that's super competitive. Like programs you know everyone's programmers at various degrees of skill to you second guess himself exactly accident -- you you actually believe that one day. Your peers -- gonna intervene. And you expose you as a -- thank you I have yes -- like. It's great which is tough you know like you're constantly -- a threat because of the availability of jobs in the program market share if you're not good. -- essentially disposable right right there I wrote an army of college -- asking at a school -- can -- the same thing for less money exactly now. So that's impostors since that's like paranoia and then I mean the other part of it and that this is why it's a specific to programmers. Is that. You know -- programming market is essentially open source now what with things like get that you can post your gets online and and other people can edit them. It's all public right so you can edit other people's projects. Label them as your own you know there's track -- some things like that -- -- -- packets get edited by her essentially. You can sort of one up your fellow programmers on a public website so. There's a -- -- element involved in the industry. The second thing is a more colloquial term -- use of sort of exposed and read it last week and that's what this business insider article is talking about. And it's called real programmers -- -- And it was sort of describing them phenomenon -- program -- need to basically work harder to get better. And you know for our jobs. To be a good podcasters it's doesn't take too much talent just need to be able to talk to hell you're talking about -- super charming you're selling ourselves short in good looking. No I don't I don't know like what we have it's super specific skills necessarily. -- the housing trying to view on a man at the as a amazingly talented -- -- he thought I was looking for a compliment. Yeah. -- -- -- computer programmers there are. There are physical beauty like that I've listened and there I'd really you know Mac. Skills that are employed -- ahead and write mad man it's easier. -- -- -- -- Yes okay come I don't get what I'm getting at is at the end of the day after the clock out were not speaking about podcasting -- -- to clocking overtime thing about all day okay. We are justice talents of its programs is what I want it to heat blood and programmers have to work and this is what there's there's syndrome is describing you have to work in their spare time in order to get better and it goes back to the does a competitive that this -- and your future right so. Decode the competition disappears but other programmers are judging you and if you don't take up programming as a hobby in addition to huge on the -- your life yet you have to essentially making your life to the point that. A lot of programmers actually worked themselves to death. The podcasters that podcast themselves to death yet. I mean Adam -- I think maybe would be -- he's arguably the hardest working man podcasting okay -- you put people they don't die yes. So if you. A label link to this business insider article in the blocking -- -- go to cnet.com slash before -- he he or she die a programmer named Kenneth Parker sort of tells the story in this blog about his coworker who stayed up for so long. And worked so hard he pushed himself so hard. And he actually -- himself in a mental hospital he didn't guy. Okay so but we've heard about -- -- crazy -- himself crazy yes in what I imagined to be the plot of pie. Yeah he basically essentially like -- -- a have a facility known errors and boy that was going on your -- that you. Did crazy impaired no I don't think it's great as any Mormon people just to make up you know why it's time for me is just like stairs walk out for a minute -- -- do that. When we're not born -- program we're not robots again. -- and when you get in the still like that we -- -- -- computer your program you don't eat you don't sleep and no way enhance its just gonna help them at all so that that's the scan the entire business go to read this article though because it's it's super interest in the headline -- is. You know most captivating part it says the stress of being computers literally driving millions increase its messaging -- -- program amendments must -- so. Think about that I mean you can get super rich but. With all things there's a downside now. It's farm. Aren't very good I wanna get to a few email or -- by for the day the first one comes from. -- -- the I calls himself. Because himself twelve volt. 1000 down apparently room. One of our biggest listeners is a battery but that's fine. He he wants to tell us a little bit about eight tracks and talk about -- last week with us Steve Guttenberg. And apparently. Eight tracks were you know like -- said they were pretty popular -- in their -- But he had. -- the first so he describes his first music player first portable player. Was a seven transistor AM radio. Okay so -- us which -- yes name radio but the size of the Buick easy in your pocket. Up bush years that that the cool thing about -- tracks. -- this we wondered how do you how do you bring them around. He had a suitcase filled with them can't you can eighths I in 1972 he get his first air receiver that had up a -- player. Eight tracks for the car. I know -- weren't available yet are so he basically had to carry around a suitcase that. Only guys imagine -- after some people think about it people how to Hennessey is the Medicare only Fanny pack and he -- filled with CD's and cassettes is right and then like that case logic book the visor -- and it just got sick you know smallest farm but not.
