It's our 50th episode and this monumental event marks the conclusion of our Big Swing series! We couldn't pick a more perfect film to end on than this big budget film with mythology inspired worldbuilding that wasn't based on any existing IP. Most of all this movie is really really wierd.
We continue our series Big Swing by talking about this 2019 film directed by Robert Rodriguez based on the manga and OVA Battle Angel Alita. Despite making around $400 million at the box office the huge price tag of this movie may actually mean it didn't turn a profit. The film clearly sets up a sequel but the jury is still out on if it will receive one. Follow us! Instagram: @undercastcompany, Twitter: @undercastco, Facebook: Undercast Company.

Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas, Aughtsterion family! Although the spirit of the season feels a little bit lacking in 2020, Jordan and Sam simply couldn't let the advent calendar go empty without one more chapter of winter wonderland content for you. This time, your co-hosts immerse themselves in the weird and wild world of Silent Night, the 2012 remake of trash Christmas classic Silent Night, Deadly Night. And Sam is taking a BIG SWING on the true meaning of this late era Aughsterion entry. Jordan gets red pilled and Jamie King gets her flowers as we wrap the pod in tinsel and dress it in a too-short sexy Santa dress one more time this year.

Important Events November 4, 1855 Today is the birthday of the English botanist and Primitive Plant Expert Frederick Orpen Bower. Bower served as the Regius chair of botany at the University of Glasgow "Glahs-go." When he arrived in 1885, the department was housed in two rooms, and the herbarium was stuffed into a small attic space. To make matters worse, when Bower lectured, he had to vie for a lecture hall with other departments and faculty. Fifteen years later, the University finally constructed a new botany building, and when it was finished, the building served as England’s first botanical institute. The 1901 grand opening for the Glasgow botany building was lumped in with the University's 450th-anniversary celebration. The eminent botanist Sir Joseph Hooker opened the building. Almost a century later, the building was renamed to honor Frederick Orpen Bower, and that’s how the building became known as the Bower Building. Tragically, on October 24, 2001, the Bower building was significantly damaged by a fire. The losses included first editions of Darwin's Origin of the species and Hooker and Bower's works. Many of the oldest botanical manuscripts and books were impacted because they were stored on the third floor under the roof space. After almost four years of continuous work, the building reopened in November 2005. The 2001 Bower Building fire is a cautionary lesson for archivists and curators to digitally preserve our most precious historical artifacts before they are lost to time. November 4, 1984 On this day, the Arizona Republic newspaper shared an article about the history of the native palm of Arizona written by Vic Miller, a professor of agriculture at Arizona State University. The article starts this way: "Yes, we do have a native palm. Seeds of it were collected in Arizona; taken to Belgium and grown in a nursery; [where it was observed] and named by a German botanist, but [it is not called the Arizona Fan Palm,] it is called the California Fan Palm." The mystery of the California Fan Palm was not about how it got its name but rather where it came from - California or Arizona. In 1976, researchers made a discovery that helped solve the 100-year-old mystery. Here's the fascinating backstory: In 1879, a German botanist, Herman von Wendland, saw the palms growing in a Belgium nursery. He named the palm Washingtonia filifera “Washing-TONE-ee-ah fill-IF-er-ah” in honor of George Washington. The name seemed appropriate since Wendland only knew that the seeds for the palms had been collected in America. Wendland had no idea which state was home to the palms. Three years earlier, in 1876, the German botanist Georg Drude had noted that the seed was collected in Arizona, along the Colorado River. An [Italian botanist, Dr. Francesco Franceschi, also said that the palms were] from Arizona. But a Stanford botanist named Samuel Parish disagreed. Parish knew that the area where the seeds were supposedly collected was near Prescott. According to Parish, this was "a region of pines rather than of palms." To Parish, the seeds had to come from California. But what Parish didn't realize is that there were small groves of Arizona palms roughly 38 miles from Prescott - near Castle Creek. Next, the researchers wondered how the Arizona Palm seeds ended up in Belgium? Well, it turns out, the 1870's stagecoach line went right along Castle Creek to Prescott, Arizona, and then onto Santa Fe, New Mexico. In September 1872, the Czech botanist and Extreme Orchid Hunter Benedict Roezl was in that part of the Southwest on his way to Mexico. Roezl likely bought some of the ripe purple fruit from those Castle Creek Arizona Palms and then sent the fruit back to Germany with his other specimens. And that is how the Arizona Fan Palm was named the California Fan Palm by a German Botanist who saw them growing in Belgium. Unearthed Words Today’s Unearthed Words are a collection of folklore and sayings about November. Thunder in November, a fertile year to come. A heavy November snow will last till April. Flowers in bloom late in autumn indicate a bad winter. If there’s ice in November that will bear a duck, There’ll be nothing after but sludge and muck. November take flail; let ships no more sail. If trees show buds in November, the winter will last until May. There is no better month in the year to cut wood than November. Ice in November brings mud in December. In May, my heart was breaking- Oh, wide the wound, and deep! And bitter it beat at waking, And sore it split in sleep. And when it came November, I sought my heart and sighed, "Poor thing, do you remember?" "What heart was that?" it cried. — Dorothy Parker, American poet, writer, critic, and satirist Grow That Garden Library Private Gardens of the Bay Area by Susan Lowry and Nancy Berner This book came out in 2017. This fantastic book was written by two incredible and accomplished garden writers: Susan Lowry and Nancy Berner. The marvelous landscape photographer Marion Brenner took all the photos. Together, this team toured over thirty-five private gardens in the San Francisco Bay Area. Now, whether you’re from this part of the country or not, you will surely be seduced by the enchanting beauty of Northern California—it's a dreamscape for landscape designers and gardeners. Susan and Nancy organized their book geographically. We get to follow along as they make their way from the San Francisco Peninsula, to San Francisco, into Berkeley and Oakland, and then wrapping up in Napa, Sonoma, and Marin. You’ll gain an appreciation for so much about this area: the micro-climates, the range of plants, the drought-tolerant natives, the rock gardens, and the endless supply of gorgeous backdrops. This tour includes the 1911 masterpiece garden known as Green Gables, the salvia haven known as Big Swing, a jaw-dropping vertical garden in San Francisco, and many more. Susan and Nancy reveal the goals of each gardener and design secrets behind every garden. This book is 256 pages of garden ideas. Susan and Nancy’s coffee-table book would be a fine gift for an avid California gardener or anyone who would enjoy touring this horticultural paradise vicariously.

The birds are almost all gone. The note of the 'dee de de' sounds now more distinct, prophetic of winter, as I go amid the wild apples on Nashawtuc. The autumnal dandelion sheltered by this apple-tree trunk is drooping and half-closed and shows but half its yellow, this dark, late, wet day in the fall... Larches are now quite yellow, — in the midst of their fall... When I look away to the woods, the oaks have a dull, dark red now, without brightness. The willow-tops on causeways have a pale, bleached, silvery, or wool-grass-like look."

Groete van Durban! Welcome to the next instalment of my amazing road trip across South Africa. In this episode, you still find me in the vibrant coastal city of Durban - but more specifically, perched on top of one of the city's most renowned landmarks, Moses Mabhida Soccer Stadium. Just what exactly am I doing 106 meters (348 ft) from the ground? I'm about to jump… The reason why I am about to jump off this stadium arch is not because I'm crazy, or because this global pandemic has gotten all too much for this weary Danish vagabond, but rather it is because I am about to do The Big Rush Big Swing: a thrilling leap swinging out into a massive 220m arc soaring over the entire stadium. It has been officially named the world's tallest swing by the Guinness Book of Records since 14 May 2011. Okay, I might be a little crazy after all! But first, let's backtrack a little. WHERE WE LEFT OFF IN THE PREVIOUS EPISODE After a great chat with Nkonzo aka Dat Boy Mreppa in the Sky Car (listen to the previous episode here), we returned safely to the ground on what had become yet another glorious day in the African sun. I went into the Moses Mabhida Stadium tourism office to see if any of the other attractions would arouse my interest. And then I saw it - the brochure for The Big Rush Big Swing. My heart started pounding. Then I heard two voices on each shoulder, an angel and little devil, trying to convince me of the pros and cons of attempting this crazy swing: A: “Why put yourself through that? You know you're going to hate it.” D: “No! You know you're going to regret it if you don't do it!” A: “Come on. You don't need that. Just get in an Uber and go have lunch.” D: “If you do it, you'll feel good about yourself!” A: “Feel good??” D: “Yes! The big rush…the big adrenalin rush!” A: “You know what would feel good? A nice cold beer and a big juicy cheeseburger!” D: “Remember just a few days ago when you were at the bungy jump place? Didn't you just say that you regretted that you didn't do it?” A: “Yeah…but you already did the world's highest bungy jump.” D: “Yes that's right…but do you know what you haven't done yet?” A: “No...what?” D: “The world's highest swing...” Yes, they were having a lively conversation. And I was struggling to make a decision. But I mustered up enough courage and made the decision to get a dose of adrenaline over Durban's skyline. I sounded calm when I got up to the top - but I wasn't. MY VAGABOND RULE When I was in the tourism office an hour earlier, the tourism officers could see that I looked scared, so I told them that I needed time to think. I actually thought this must be something that happens on a daily basis, and I was sure they were making bets if I would return or not. Let me tell you a bit about my Vagabond Rule. On day 2 of my nomadic journey back in July 2016, I made the rule to myself which stated, ‘when in doubt, just do it'. This rule has always steered me in the direction of adventure and discovery and has provided me with countless serendipitous moments I have been lucky enough to experience. I have tried to live by my Vagabond Rule ever since, and it has never let me down. This was not the day I would break my most valued rule. So, I bought a ticket and started preparing myself for what was to come. Oh yes, did I mention that I am terrified of heights? SWINGING IN DURBAN “Would you like to pay extra for the video and the photos of your swing-venture?” the tourism officer asks. You bet I would. I was here alone, and I definitely needed some proof of me doing this. I mean, who wouldn't want to see my poor, terrified face hurtling towards the ground for their own amusement? That's why you're here, isn't it? :) The Big Rush Big Swing is not your average swing. It allows you to take the thrilling leap from a small bridge between parts of the iconic arch of the stadium, some 80 meters above the spectator stand, swinging out into a massive 220m arc where you soar into the centre of the stadium. This is not a bungy jump. There's no big rubber bungee cord this time. Only a rope. One end strapped to my waist and the other strapped to the highest point of the arch. Before I jumped, I was presented with some legal papers with a lot of fine print to sign, which would take me hours to read, and then a dotted line after the text where my shaking signature should go. When I'm nervous I tend to make jokes, so I asked them if I was effectively signing my life away, to which they responded “Yes”. Yikes. After I bravely signed the consent form, the tour operators began to attach the harnesses on me. It was all getting too real at this point. They attach the harnesses onto you on the ground because the only way to get to the jumping-off point at the top of the stadium arch is to walk up the 352 steps of the actual arch, which carries a strong risk of falling. So, the experience of thrill mixed with danger begins when you are still on the ground and haven't even started the swing yet! Before we embarked to the summit, I am literally sweating fear droplets (dramatic, I know), and of course, I am nervously making jokes about dying with every breath. Not only am I painfully aware that these are not funny at all. I am also clearly making the other two jumpers nervous. Ugeetha and Luis, a young couple from Cape Town, were my jumping crew partners. We began making our way up the stairs in nervous anticipation, but all I can think of now is how unfit I am! These stairs are more terrifying than the prospect of the jump! 352 steps are the equivalent of 25 floors in a building. So, if the thought of jumping out of a window from the 25th floor doesn't make your mouth dry, the walk up there definitely will. We eventually made it to the top and Ugeetha and I both fervently insisted that Luis be the first lemming to take the plunge. Ugeetha and I could see the terror in his face as he was about to take his last step to the edge. He jumped, and it looked amazing, to be honest! Soon after they reeled him back in, Ugeetha jumped with excitement. Now it was my turn… THE BIG RUSH First, you have to climb down 4-5 meters on a vertical ladder from the viewing platform to the actual jumping platform itself. But even though I knew I was safely secured in my harness; my heart was in my throat when I looked down to the ground to see just how high we were. After cautiously making my way to the jumping platform I realized there was no turning back. “Are you ready to jump?” the swing operator asked me. “I don't have a choice now, do I?” I thought. I handed over my phone to a girl shooting videos and taking pictures and left my microphone on the side as well. They asked me to say a few words to the camera, which was placed a few meters away and it's windy up there so, it's a bit hard to hear. But basically, I said the same thing I had been saying for an hour leading up to this point: “I don't know why I'm doing this. I feel this is a big mistake and bla-bla-bla." I then started climbing down the stairs (with them filming each nervous step) and halfway down they said: “Hey look up and smile!”. I managed to do so, but inside I was terrified! 1-2-3-JUMP...! Then I slowly made my way out to the middle of the very narrow bridge. It's less than a meter wide and even though there's a railing on one side and I was strapped in, I still felt I could fall down and die any second. Oops…I used the D-word again. And then it was my turn. 3-2-1…JUMP! If you want to get the full experience, then be sure to watch the video of my Big Swing. I promise you will not be disappointed! Look out for my next episode about what happened after I descended the towering arch of Moses Mabhida Stadium. Because the next day turned out to be nothing like I expected – and plans were drastically changed… Until then, take care! LISTENER LETTER I decided to fulfil a request I've had a few times regarding a song I used in one of my previous episodes. Here's one of the emails about that. This one is from Andrea from Brisbane, Australia. “Hi Palle, I've heard you playing a little bit of a song where they sing something like “Living the good life”. Would you mind playing the full song at some point? I really like it and it always makes me smile. Thanks, Palle! Keep up the good work, Andrea” Thank you for your letter, Andrea! I am glad that you like the song so much, it is one of my favourites, too. The song is called ‘Living the Good Life' and is performed by singer-songwriter, Steve Collom. Enjoy! I WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU! I really would like to hear from you. Where are you and what are you doing as you listen to this episode? You can either send me an email on email@example.com or go to my brand new website TheRadioVagabond.com. Or you know what would be fun? Send me a voicemail on WhatsApp and I can play it on the next episode. My WhatsApp number is +4540105105. Either way, I would love to hear from you. It's so nice to know who's on the other end of this… SPONSORS A special thank you to my sponsors, Hotels25.com, who always provide me with the best, most affordable accommodation wherever I am in the world.

The Blue Heaven boys are back from spring training in Arizona and they've got stories ...but first they want to talk about the Dodgers starting rotation and how it was already set only a couple games into Cactus League play. On today's show: Rosterbation Is the Rotation Really Already Set? Spring Training Stories Dodger Stadium Renovation Update And More! It seems that the only question left unanswered is who starts opening day, even though Dave Roberts has said it's down to two. Clayton Kershaw apparently went to Driveline Baseball and it has the guys excited to see what a re-invented Kersh looks like. Moreover, we discuss the pitchers on the outside looking in as far as the rotation is concerned and openly wonder if the organization has enough players to field two competitive teams in the major leagues. Plus Mookie Betts has spoken and he wants to be left in the leadoff spot. Clint and Brook share some of their favorite stories from Arizona but hold off on the juicy stuff while Gary is away. Still, importantly, how mrgarylee tried to kill them is discussed, as well as drinking all of a bar's beer with a host of The Big Swing podcast. Finally, there is one month until the official start of the season and Dodger Stadium is far from finished. While an update tour is planned shortly, Clint and the online audience are all very concerned about whether the ballpark will be ready in time. Learn more about your ad choices.
