A few years back, 99pi producer Emmett FitzGerald brought us a beautiful story about peat bogs. Peat is essential for biodiversity and for the climate – it is really, really good at storing carbon. But like a lot of things we cover on the show, peat often goes unnoticed, in part because it is literally out of sight underground. We've noticed peat and carbon sequestration more and more in the news lately. Journalists have been brilliantly covering stories about the tree planting movement, private ownership of Scotland's bogs, and the threat to peat in the Congo Basin. Couple that with more extreme weather happening in more places, we thought it would be a good idea to repeat this story.For the Love of Peat

Edward Chancellor, Author, Journalist and unrivaled Financial Historian, joins us today to discuss the history of Interest, based on his new book, “The Price of Time: The Real Story of Interest". We address why it is crucial to pay attention to the historical perspectives of the economy, the allocation of capital and interest and why low interest rates have a feedback effect on the economy, the zombie corporate phenomenon and the impact it has on the economy. We also discuss the longer term consequences of low interest rates and whether bubbles can be beneficial, globalization and how interest rates impacts the fragility of global supply chains, the role of Central Banks and how they affect price stabilization by preventing creative destruction. Lastly, we discuss how the Fed policy of “cleaning up afterwards” creates unintended problems afterwards, how a zero interest policy can pose a threat to capitalism and much more. ---- ---- Follow Niels on https://twitter.com/toptraderslive (Twitter), https://www.linkedin.com/in/nielskaastruplarsen (LinkedIn), https://www.youtube.com/user/toptraderslive (YouTube) or via the https://www.toptradersunplugged.com/ (TTU website).

Nick KaÃner Facebook Website Instagram Twitter Steady Paypal Thomas Urban Diese Folge ist am 9.August 2022 zum 80.Jahrestags des Todesspiels von Kiew erschienen. Beim sogenannten Todesspiel handelt es sich um eine FuÃballpartieÂ zwischen der Kiewer Mannschaft âStartâ und der âFlakelfâ, einer Mannschaft bestehend aus Mitgliedern der deutschenÂ Flugabwehr, wÃ¤hrend der deutschen Besatzung am 9. August 1942 inÂ Kiew. âStartâ, die Ã¼berwiegend aus frÃ¼heren Spielern des ClubsÂ Dynamo KiewÂ bestehende Betriebsmannschaft der Brotfabrik Nr.Â 1, siegte mit 5:3 gegen die âFlakelfâ. In derÂ SowjetunionÂ wurde die Version verbreitet, Kiewer Spieler seien nach der Partie von derÂ SS erschossen worden, weil sie die Deutschen mit ihrem Sieg gedemÃ¼tigt hÃ¤tten. Im Laufe der Jahrzehnte wurde die Version immer wieder angepasst, auch im heutigen Russland gibt es eine passende Version. Die gesamte Geschichte rund um das Spiel erzÃ¤hlt in dieser Folge Thomas Urban. Er ist Journalist und Sachbuchautor und hat als einer der ersten, dieses Todesspiel und die ErzÃ¤hlungen dazu aufgearbeitet. Der HÃ¶rfehler Podcast ist Werbe, Sponsoren und Paywallfrei.

Tensions in Gaza are rising as another Islamic Jihad leader has been killed and with the death toll now over 30, there are fears that things are going to get worse. Joining me to discuss this is Ramallah based Journalist, Gareth Browne. Gareth explains how this escalation started with the arrest of Islamic Jihad commander Bassam al-Saadi in Jenin, 5 days ago.

Become a Useful Idiot for extended interviews and bonus content at http://usefulidiots.substack.com Lindsey Snell, journalist at ishgal.com, crossed the Ukraine border to talk to soldiers and civilians. What she found surprised her: There are Ukrainian forces who are “openly Neonazis, and we're still giving them weapons and calling them something that they're not.” All across the frontlines Lindsey found swastikas, SS symbols, and Wolfsangels. But negative news in Ukraine undermines the West's mission to bleed Russia and sell more weapons, so corporate US media paints over it. Lindsey also found that while the western mercenaries who flew over to kill Russians are loving the war, most of the Ukrainians she spoke to, both soldiers and citizens, want it to end. “The corruption and lack of equipment is worse in Ukraine than anywhere I've been, Syria, Iraq, Libya. It's just so bad.” And for the Ukrainians who are starving, losing their homes, and dying, “there's no end in sight.” What's worse — as is the norm with guests on Useful Idiots — no one in western media will report on Lindsey's story. “Journalists come and see how corrupt everything is and that the soldiers have nothing, but none of is is reflected in mainstream reporting. It's very well known but it's just not getting past the filter of western media.” Plus, subscribe for the full interview, where Lindsey shares the story of getting kidnapped in Syria, how the war is hurting Europeans, and Turkey's potential invasion of Syria (that you probably won't hear about). It's all this, and more, on this week's episode of Useful Idiots. Check it out. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit podcastchoices.com/adchoices

Journalist and husband extraordinaire Allen Arthur joins Caity to explore a top cop con job. They discuss the recent scam pulled by former NYPD Sergeants Benevolent Association President Ed Mullins, in which he (allegedly) used around $1 million of his union's money to fund his grocery shopping and steakhouse dinners. Not only did this special boy in blue (allegedly) defraud his own union members, but he found the time to dox former Mayor Bill de Blasio's daughter on Twitter! (That's not allegedly. That one definitely happened.) There's really nothing like a guy tweeting about the dangers of crime while skimming a few hundred grand of cop money. And the way this hero does it (allegedly) is jaw-dropping. Because hey, if you can expense a dinner for $50.00 why not make it $500? They're just numbers guys!
