Why Author Mark Shaw Sought the Truth in the JFK Assassination
"For folks who don't know anything about you, how did you get into this? Because anybody who's been alive in our lifetimes know that there's been tremendous controversy and confusion around certainly the death of president Kennedy, the death of Marilyn Monroe, and many people haven't even heard of Dorothy kill gallon. What brought you? What is your background that brought you to investigate these things as you have done over the years? Well, you ask about how I got into all of this and I have no idea in some ways very Quinn. President Kennedy was killed 60 years ago, you know, nearly 60 years ago or a little bit more. You know, I like everybody else. I cried my ears out. I was a Purdue university as a freshman. And yet over the years then, I bought all this material about J. Edgar Hoover saying Oswald alone. Oswald alone all of that and everything else. And then I had a real break with this because I knew Melvin Belli, who represented Jack Ruby, who shot Lee Harvey Oswald. I practiced law with him in San Francisco in the 80s. And when Belle I died, I started to look into his life and times and I found out that I could have a book there. So I wrote Melvin bell I king of the courtroom. And what I found out was the alarming, a couple things. First of all, he was very close with the mafia, one of his main clients was Mickey Cohen, the Los Angeles gangster. You're talking about but more than talking about Bella, are you talking about Marvin belli was close with the mafia? Melvin bell. Melvin Belli. Bella. Yeah. San Francisco attorney, but also he was known as a tort lawyer. He was a personal injury lawyer. How in the world I asked myself, I mean, you're a curious guy. How did he become Jack Ruby's attorney? So I started looking into that and what I found out was that actually he was a hired by those who wanted to silence Jack Ruby for his participation in the killing of Oswald and the JFK assassination.

'The Devil and Bella Dodd' Author Paul Kengor on the Communist War on God
"Book is the devil and Bella Dodd, but you wrote a book called the devil and Karl Marx, where you talk and I think it's very important to understand that there are satanic foundations to atheists, communism, obviously we're dealing with it today in China. What they believe is true or what they what they work against are the most basic things life, the sanctity of the individual, the family. I mean, it seems, if you weren't sure what to think of it, you look at it and say, this looks like a war on God and on God's principles and God's reality. I mean, when you go to war with the family and you start saying that the state owns your children, the state will determine what your children get in school. You, as a parent, have no stay. That strikes at the heart of everything for most people. And we just saw that before young can became governor in Virginia, you have the man whose name I'm happy not to remember, running for governor in Virginia saying something shockingly similar. It is as un American and as um biblical as anything. The idea that parents should not have a say in their children's lives and that kind of thing. But that's at the heart of communist theory. It's at the very basis of it and you're saying that's part of what triggered Bella dot, a died in the world communist, finally to wake up. Yeah, in fact, she read the manifesto where it sneers out and makes fun of what they call the hallowed correlation between parent and child, right? And Bella dot actually believed, well, yeah, the correlation, the relationship between parent and child is hallowed, right? This is something special. But they declared war on that. They declared war on religion. And she learned this very early on when she went to hunter college, one of her professors who, by the way, she's a communist, the professor, and about committing suicide, which a lot of these people did, you know, they had very unhappy lives. And Bella tried to write this innocent little paper, right, about monastic life, which she thought was kind of interesting. And the teacher pulled her in and said, this is a good paper, so I'm going to give you a good grade, but we need to have a talk about this religion stuff. And the other instead, the teacher wanted to wanted her to write positively about the French Revolution, rather than rather than about life and monasteries. But Lenin called it called a medieval mildew spiritual booze. He said there's nothing more abominable than religion. Marx called religion, the opiate of the masses, Mark said communism begins where atheism begins. It was a war on God, which is why they went after and tried to infiltrate the churches. And they tapped her to do that as well.
Paul Kengor on Bella Dodd's Struggle Against Communism
"In the 1930s, many, many people thought communism was the wave of the future. It was a good thing. It made tremendous inroads. People were we have apologists for Stalin, you know, getting Pulitzer prizes in The New York Times. It was a time before much of the world knew the satanic evil of the Soviet Union. And so you had a lot of these folks that were, they really believed somehow that communism was a good thing. Obviously, bellad was one. So what was it that they saw or that they believed communism could bring about? And when did they, when did she begin to see that this wasn't the case that this crusade that she was on had not been a good thing? Well, kind of the final thing, I'll hit that first that pulled her in was fascism. And there's a quote from her in the book. She said, I joined the devil himself, but that's what it took to fight fascism. Now, of course, you don't have to be a communist to fight to fight fascism, right? But the party was really good at creating groups with front groups with names like the American League against Warren fascism. But in her case, she came to America, she was born in Italy in 1904. So Eric she had this beautiful Italian Catholic name, right? Mary asante Isabella of the stono, which means like the assumption of the blessed mother, right? And she comes to America and she came to New York, her family brought her here for a better life. And she immediately fell in with radical elements in her grade school in her high school at hunter college in New York. College was a hotbed of the dish. That's a fact.

"Is Paul kangor. He's been on this program before. He is a professor at grove city college poli sci, professor Paul kinger, welcome. Erik it is always good to be with you. Thank you very much for having me back. Well, it's our pleasure. You have a new book out with a provocative title. It's called the devil and Bella dod. One woman struggle against communism and her redemption, brand new book, the devil and bellad by Paul kangor. What is this book about, sir? Yeah, I'll tell you, she ought to be somebody that everybody knows about. And it went at one point, Eric, she was. In fact, at one point in the 1950s, she would have been one of the top one or two. I mean, other than maybe Elizabeth Bentley probably the most famous female ex communist in America. She went on to boldly testify before Congress before the Senate, multiple times about how she infiltrated education and all kinds of other different things for the Communist Party. But in the 1930s and 1940s, she was a leading a leading female communist and she described her battle to extricate herself from the communist movement as quite literally a battle with the devil himself.

"Nobody knows. But what I do know for the first time in a long time. And forever. this. If lane kiffin Li he's old myth for any job where there's Alabama or whatever. I believe that it will not be because of money. No, no, nana, I 100% agree with you because all of these coaches and I mean all of them are making so much money right now that this sounds funny for me or you to say because it's not our money and we don't have this kind of money. I don't. But if you're making $6 million a year and you can bump it up to 8 or ten, that money really, what are we talking about? That's enough money to suffice any most normal people is what I'm trying to say. So it really comes down to your motivation and does lane kiss. Motivation. What do you think his ultimate motivation is? Well, I think he wants to win a championship. And I think what he has to do. I mean, if somebody would ask my opinion, I would say, look ahead and try to figure out where your program will be in a couple of years, three to 5 years, and where can that program go? And I know what auburn fans will answer. The question by saying we've played for the national championship twice, but all this didn't miss out by much either. And I mean, I know this sounds crazy. If all miss wins out, they'll be playing in there. They'll be in the college football playoff. That's not really a big stretch. Now, can they do that? Right. But if auburn is hanging their hat on that, they're not hanging their head on very much. In my opinion, I mean, to me, I think that Alabama is probably the only place that I would see lane kiff and going. Now again, I don't know, I don't know. I don't have any inside information, just like you don't. But just from an old miss van, having a little bit of insight with some people up there, you know, the guy is in a good situation, he likes it in Oxford and what, I mean, if you're the a day at auburn, where do you tell his lane kiffin to get him to come to auburn? Did we play for national championship? In 2000 12. To say, considering that as of about noon today, that AD was living in starkville, Mississippi. One, I understand that, but I mean, I can tell you what I think lane kiffin's questions are going to be. Let's say he was interviewed for the job on the sly, he would want to know what the NIL situation looks like. And how far it can go. Because he's clearly, I think this is my opinion here. You live there, so I'll defer to you, but I think he's frustrated with of getting to where it needs to be in Oxford. And I base that on this. I saw him four weeks ago and he had just come from an NIL press conference. And you could see that. I read some negativity in his body language, and he didn't say anything, but it was just something I read. Now you can say, I bet, which would be accurate. We need to head to the break right now. We have more to come on the program, your phone calls around the corner. You're screaming out loud, man or next. You are listening to the Paul finebaum show podcast.

"Short hour has arrived busy newsday with Brian Carson fired at auburn, a new athletic director on the verge of being announced down there. He is Sean Cohen from Mississippi state. We'll grab a few more calls. We have a couple of guests that will be dropping by here. Let's check out pat in Georgia. Hi, pat. Pale to Georgia down indexing. Gators, Gators, how'd you like to bite my butt? I'm still partying, Paul. Right here. But I do want to talk about auburn. I do have a source it's a dear friend of mine. And he knows more about auburn than most people in this world. Auburn got two things done today. They've got a new AD and they fired the head coach and I don't believe they were going to fire Brian until they got an AD. He's not quite on board yet. Auburn has a thing, it's more than the thing. It's called the auburn creed and it's more of a more than just a shingle. The principles espoused in the auburn creed, that's going to keep auburn from hiring some head coaches. And the head coaches that they're not going to hire are people who have bad have made bad life choices. And I don't need to go in with you as to who those people are, but they never were on the list and they're not on the list now and they never will be on the list. There was a head coach that Jim rain wanted. And then there's the defensive coach that got paid a two or $3 million for not even coaching a game that went somewhere else. I think those two names are probably on the list, maybe not at the top. Would you help me with my memory as to the names of those two individuals? Yes. I'm not sure. But I think the most important person that needs to be on board is Jim rain. And I think auburn is going to end up with who he wants. Regardless of the circumstance, do you know what Kevin Steele's doing now, sir? Kevin Steele is at Miami as a defensive coordinator and suffering through a miserable season. Pat, I hate to run. We're up against a guest here, which we want to say hello to Timothy. Bella joins us, he's an editor at The Washington Post and tomorrow. His long awaited book on Charles Barkley will come out and the name of the book, Barkley, a biography and Tennessee, so great to say hello to you and talk about what many are praising as one of the critical looks at one of the most interesting people not only in sports, but in the American pop culture scene. Timothy good afternoon, great to reconnect. How's it going, Paul? Great to be here. Listen, there's a lot of people that we don't need to explain much about in terms of who they are and why they are interesting. However, Barclay has written his own biography, even though he claimed he was misquoted in it. There had been other attempts, explained the backstory on what turns you on to this project. I know it was an exhaustive project, but how did it begin? It was Paul and this actually goes back to my own childhood. In Houston, where I grew up a huge basketball fan, just watching Barclay and honestly, I was the absolute hell out of him when he first came in because I was big rockets fans. Sons came in and obviously he gets dealt to Phoenix unseen actually changes half of that. But on my end too, as I got older and hearings in a sense he was saying and doing on and off the court, I thought to myself if this man has been in our lives at auburn for over 40 years now since being that auburn just being public figure, NBA player. Star commentator. He deserved a big biography on him. He's coming up on 60s. Obviously he's been inside for over two decades now and my goal with this book Paul was to dig as deep as I possibly could into who this man is and how she actually got here because it really is an incredible American story. Timothy, there's so much known about him. He's such a big part of all of our lives who watch sports. He's transcended sports in many ways. I know you've interviewed you interviewed almost 400 people and it's almost cliche to try to chisel that down to a question like I'm about to ask you. But I am going to do it though because I'm curious, what did you learn that you didn't know or surprised you the most? Honestly, just going back to his own childhood and Alabama years before he became this big plan boy and star to talk so much, I have learned about the kids a lot of people called ways his middle name and how he was shy around girls and how he was initially terrible at basketball and would occasionally get bully pulling up and leads during a really hard time to obviously during the civil rights movement. So I probably want to go back to that city outside Birmingham and really get a feel for who he was and how we actually got to this point how this undersized trillion chubby kid who did not have a lot of natural skill for can Charles Barkley can dominate these high auburn and then essentially the NBA. And I know you had experience actually cover it to two Paul.
Jason Jones Joins Eric 1 Year After America Pulled Out of Afghanistan
"On our very, very dear friend, Jason Jones, Jason, welcome. Eric, thank you for having me on your show. It's always a joy to have you. There are so many aspects to you that I won't even have time to get into right now, but let's give my audience an overview. First of all, I know you in many ways through John's mirac, you and he have written things together, have done a lot of work together. And he was the one that suggested to me having you on today for this extraordinarily grim anniversary. So you are a man who wears many hats. Your film producer, you're a writer, you were involved in the movie Bella, the pro life film from 15 or so years ago, but you now head up something called the vulnerable people project and you've been helping some of these folks suffering in Afghanistan as a result of this wicked regime's policies. Oh, no. I don't mean the Taliban. I mean, the Biden regime who have no excuse for what they did and many of us are still trying to process how such things happen. But tell us the good news. Tell us what you've been involved in over this last year. Eric, well, the good news is we all haven't forgotten what happened a year ago today. So we at the vulnerable people project have been evacuating people out of the country. Every week since August of last year and but beyond that, we began to resettle folks that we've moved to countries. We've moved folks over the border to neighboring countries and began working with every country in the world that we could to begin finding our former Afghan allies who fought shoulder to shoulder with us against some of the worst terrorists in the world. And then we're left to die by the Biden administration. Now we are having some success resettling them to other countries.

"I don't know if anybody else is getting any interest out of this, but for me, it's like fascinating to know what our, you know, there's things that are just in our family that we think about that are normal everyday things that maybe aren't that normal. What about faith? In our family. Like you guys know, I pray every night on my knees or whatever. We're praying over meals or things like that. Your grandfather baptized you. Yeah. Right. Mom's father, baptized you. So do you think faith has become a part of each of you as you go off to college, you max as a junior you Bella is a freshman like what part of that about your life, either one of you. I would say for me is one for people who don't know, I go to a Christian college right now or religion is a really heavy aspect of it. Like I'm gonna get my minor in biblical studies as well. At Arizona Christian and Glendale. And one of the things that we're taught is you have to build a worldview around your faith. And honestly, whenever I think of that, the first person I think of is my grandma, so my mom's mom. She might be the most religious person I've ever met in my entire life. I think we can all agree that I see everybody laughing, but just kind of just been like a lifestyle that we've just grown up around. You've never forced religion on us too, because I feel like that's a thing people get sensitive about, especially since we're Christian, is people think that Christians just love to Bible thump and push it down, but that's not how we were raised. It was around us and we just had the opportunity to take advantage of it as we want. We will pray at dinner. But we're not always actively engaging in it together. You kind of let us do our own thing with it because I too. Really good. You say anything? Yeah, I think it's super cool that we grew up in all our morals or faith based, those faith kind of every aspect of our life, but we were never the family that goes to church every Sunday and wakes up at like 9 a.m. and puts on a little church outfit to go, but I think that it was really cool because it was like we all just kind of have our own form of our faith. Like for you, like you got on your knees and pray every night like we have our bibles and stuff, but I think it was cool that we didn't have to go to church every single Sunday.

You get me in your laughing, you calm you down and he's like, all right, you got all the jitters out now. Now just go have fun. So that was a biggie. So that was a big thing for me, is being able to kind of just control the things that you can. Very good. Kind of control yourself. You can't control always your external environment, but you can't control yourself. Really good. This is great for me to hear that you guys have got all this stuff sometimes you wonder. But we never sit down and really talk about it. And that's important. I don't think you have to. I think things are caught, not taught. There's lessons I go Bella, this is why I think this way. You know, you know that'll go, let me tell you what I'm thinking right now. Or we'll be watching something and I'll stop the TV and go, listen, here's the lesson here. I do a lot of that. This is stuff that we take for granted that I don't think is nor like my dad. Well, first off, when I was growing up, there was no remote to do that. But that's the whole thing. But there are lots of times where I go, listen to me. This is important right here. What you're watching or watch this speech this person gave her, listen to this thing they said. Read this book or whatever. So I do do that, but it's not stuff we sit down and consciously, okay, control your breathing. It's not necessarily true. We don't really do that stuff.

"The truth is that even in the beginning, I like my financial career, I remember the apartment that I lived in back in the day. You didn't get automated deposit right you would get checks, but I had checks like stacked up on my dresser dot I had not cashed yet that were about to expire, not because I didn't need the money. I wasn't getting rich, but I was paying my bills and I was loving what I was doing. I was not doing it for money. I think when I came out of the orphanage, when I worked at McKinley, it became more like a cause thing. I have really never consciously ever had any meeting where I'm like, oh wow, I'm making this or I could make that even if I go speak or do anything or even like the show. I don't even know what I make from the show. Honestly, don't know people ask me all the time. I know there's advertisers. I know it's a lot of money. But I couldn't tell you how much I never think about that. I don't think about the rankings or the ratings often. I check them. Well, first this month, you know, I want more from a competitive standpoint. I've been a financial standpoint. So for me, it was always that I wanted to compete, and I liked what I was doing. I didn't like every single part of what I was doing. But in baseball, I just loved the game. And then in business, most of the businesses I've had, I've loved. Most of them I love most of what I'm doing, but I've also been, I've told you about this before. I'm willing to do things. I don't want to do in order to be successful. I'm willing to do things I don't enjoy in order to be sick. So I've been loved every part of every business I've had for sure. So yeah, what about you and golf? I would kind of say it's the same thing. Like I just do it because I love the golf. I love the competition as you kind of said with baseball. A lot of people know some people joke like golf's not a sport or anything like that. Some people just go out just to have fun, not as much competition. And you did an interview with Zach Johnson before as well and he kind of went into this too. He just loves to compete. Like I'll be out with my friends, my teammates, even family. Monopoly. I will find every single way to try and win a monopoly. You cheat him monopoly. Let's just be completely honest. It is messed up. We completely cheat. Bella and I play legal, ethical monopoly, and you and your mom are constantly freaking cheating. Interesting. Last game, we actually ended up on top and they both admitted to cheating. And we both, and actually, the end, the only reason I be used because max cheated, it gave me all this money so you would live. Correct. In the middle of that moment. I didn't steal money. What you did was you gave me too much, and I just didn't give you change back. $500 from me. That would be. It wasn't until the next day because the game was long, you're like, hey, I got to let you know, Alicia have some honesty. Well, I would say remorse for that. But Bella and I play it a legitimately straight up.

Harvard Profresor Ruth Wisse on the Significance of Writer Saul Bellow
"And I'm talking to Ruth wise, longtime Professor of literature at Harvard, now at the tikva fund, Ruth thanks for joining me. Let's talk a little bit about Saul Bellow. You knew it's all Bello. I never met Saul Bellow, but my longtime editor was his son Adam Bello, so I've gotten to know the father, so to speak through the sun. But you would agree what knew that Bella was one of the towering figures of literature in the 20th century. Do you agree with that and why? What is it that made him so important? Well, he's certainly important to me because he was my favorite writer long before I met him, that's partly because he comes from Montreal, which is where I grew up. So it was very homey. But it's also because of the kind of writer that he was, he came on the scene, I think, understanding that literature was enormously important. And I think that one of his insights was that the world was becoming more disjointed that the consciousness was being torn in a hundred directions. Well, if it was that way in his day, you can imagine how much more so it is in our day when there are so many things bombarding you. And so I think that one of the things that he felt was that the novel could really provide the most entire picture of what our human experience is through the prism of an individual. And in his writing, that individual is very often a kind of solve Bello. He doesn't choose he doesn't choose to write about a person who's different from himself, but rather some projection of himself, so that it's always a very erudite person, a good person, basically, but struggling with difficult

I apologize. He said the fucking sperm that came out of this fucking okay, you know what I'm gonna say. He was very, very protective of his daughter.

But that defenseman dwight free robert matt Bob sanders. i mean it was. It was a joke and yeah. It's all a terrible blur for me. Like four picks i think my rating was it like it was a disaster but i think that was a clear design i was i just turned twenty one.

I felt unprepared. And it was a disaster and it showed. You've been a guy who had a four interception game really early after being a top. Pick your the number one overall pick of course. What do you counsel him. Hypothetically what do you stay to him after a game like this if you were to visit him. Alex smith kind of like a ghost of christmas future. What do you. What do you tell a kid who's very talented but also just had a day like this. I think exactly that. I mean i think you gotta go like for me. I just go to the third and fourth picks that he grew and pause before the snap and look look like jack. It's ten to three on this one. It's in the third quarter we got. There's a ton of football left. There's no reason to throw this ball up The way he did and then even the second one in the fourth grade. I mean i think it was thirteen to three. At that point.

"The other side. I it's a more interesting. Quarterback is a quarterback competition in new england. What is the sense. You get the dynamic between cam. Newton and mack jones. Yes quarterback competition. We can call it that cam. Newton is the starter plated limited amount of time against the washington football team. And then as you mentioned mack jones and it's very important not only to listen to what bill bella checks says but what he does and what he did was put back jones out there with the first team offensive line for a couple of plays at the end of his at the first half against the washington football team and then he had max jones run the two minute drill the no huddle offense and that he did with command and obviously precision and they were very impressed with that but right now what he wants to see what bill belichick wants to see and he said this the other day he to see the whole team but particularly the quarterback play faster react faster execute faster and what better way to do that than enjoying practices with the philadelphia eagles and then a preseason game on thursday night but yes there is a competition and we'll have to see how this goes in the next couple of weeks but my money is on cam. Newton starting the season and mack jones quickly getting up to speed and pushing cam newton for the starting job.

"Think there's a real junior now of women liking anti-heroin you think about like killing eve or Promising young woman and so. I don't think i'm the fuss. It's not an original thing to do. But i think there's a real thing or when you see women behaving maybe in ways that very unlikable also against convention. I think it's natural for other women's kind of root for them. I'm a understand your interest in tree. Crime goes way back to childhood and your dopson while allowing you to watch things that some parents might not allow you to watch. Yeah he had a real interest and true crime so specifically golden age georgia awards fat vessel victorian true crime mud poisoning and so he used to read me lots of true crime. When i was two beds and we'd solve you know he'd go over the kind of very crippen mergers and by the boss. And i would just be completely or straw. I don't know how i slept. And i'm sure that has something to gladdens artsy as an adult but but it was great. Fun and it really. It really started me on a on a journey fascination with truecar nonfiction on the role women play say long women have been the victim. The person who is murdered. I'm guessing that's a frustration for you. Judging by the way this book is written. Yeah definitely i think as i as i got older into the ninety remember so reading the papers every day before grade school and they were always about murdered women in most kind of vicious detail on i mean growing older and reading a little corn fiction by men and again the same thing the women would be victim often silent often damaged you know and and i got turned off those kind of books and unnecessary truecar. For that reason. I wanted to write something where the woman was in charge. And and and as a woman. You wouldn't exhausted roussel traumatized reading it. Let's talk about the book because grace is she's essentially seeking revenge. Isn't she the treatment of a mother. It's the story of the incredibly wealthy man who who gets woman pregnant. And then basically wants nothing to do with her but grace's kind of angry towards them but she kinda quite likes the money in the finer things in life. There's almost a bit of a conflict therefore zindler year. It's really funny. Because she so disdainful of the kind of superwealthy and the kind of privilege that comes with that at the same time she cleaning. Want some of that. If i had south and she can't ever quite decide whether she's looking for just pure vengeance of whether she wants the life that was denied to her. And i think she doesn't. She's not aware that. I think she thinks it's all disgusting and terrible bachelor. She gives clues that you know if it was if it was down to house. Also be living like that. I think inched you portrayal of an influence up. Because he he's quite sad. It's it's a bit grim but yet we look at you. You need a lovely life on instagram. Very jealous i mean my his just my dog and writing. And that's by. And yeah. I mean i think it's really fascinating because accidentally i ended up with lots of fun on instagram and and i think it can take you to some dot places. I think you could kind of flog flog your entire online presence if you wanted to and and then you have to never lie which is just feel followers and so i did find it really fascinating to tap into that kind of darker side of that. I'm a mean you have use by briefly you mentioned about your anxiety you've always been quite open about the things that you find. Tricky in life and and clearly. That's something that you feel important. And i guess feeds into the book to some extent. Yeah i mean. We the i so i wrote her. That my main characters this very strong you know slightly psychopathic women. But actually she. She can help in traceability said she wants anxiety she kinda feels everyone's in panicky and she closed net quiet law. Which is what. I do when i feel like i can't breathe and and san jose. She's anxious about lots of other things. She thinks about clause. And you know the patriarchy and orange things so i. I couldn't help obviously but i think probably mental health is such massive of my day to day existence. I couldn't help but bring it in even though you know it's supposed to be a fun. Bitterness by in it's not supposed to teach you always supposed to be law. But yeah i can help but bring it in because i think especially in the modern world everyone. Everyone is beset by that all the time. There were some very imaginative murders. Within the i mean. How difficult was it. Did you surprise yourself how good you wear it. Murdering people within the book. You know what i was getting at coming up with ways of measuring them by was terrible to actually getting around to because my mom take a grandparent dead yet and i i in a night. They weren't die mama no do and they just. It was weird trying to kill them as really hot. So you know. I'd get fifteen pages. It's dialogue and they still wouldn't be dead not thinking. Oh god they don't want to die and actually. There is a character who saves themselves. Because as i was wearing should not make them die so the end by just okay you get to know But it was so much fun. Because i didn't wanna to gory night as you said because i think so much of crime fiction true corners is poker sliema kind of the way. A woman gets murdered in the debate about it. And i didn't want to write a book. Wanted it to be so ten percent removed from reality and something that you'd read without kind of feeding stick till summit so that funny either pensive the slightly ridiculous an and it was a lot of fun coming up with things like a smart house. Which kills you. You know that that that is something that in the future one day will happen and i wrote it for and i guess there's probably a real difference in writing a she is a monster so a female monster versus a male monster. Yes i think it's really interesting female most of because we're so yeasrs likable heroines. And really when men are monsters in books you know. We never have any qualms about saying that we were reaching tool and so it really turned on its head and lots of fun. We're kind of figuring out. How make a terrible but walking not fine line all you don't want read it to lose interest or feel like this is too terrible mita back anymore because i do feel like that as a reader myself you know. I think you have to have some kind of sympathy and with e for carrots and And so but yeah i did. Thank you ryan. Male anti-heroes has been has been a thing forever. You know james bond is a terrible human being. Why would you want to be friends with him. But you root for him. The whole way through the book and no one ever said go. You know this guy. graham saturday so yeah. It was really fun and so interesting. Things need to do an interesting look at female rage as well. Yeah i think being able to explore female raged without you know without having to pull myself back old. Feel like it was kind of unladylike or you know it was going to be difficult for anyone so for me writing. Her was kind of like writing myself. If i had no constraints. And i haven't been brought with kindness and love around the and i was allowed to just angry and say well the thing i would say and again. I think that's why women you read. Crime fiction often rate and route. Four female protagonist. Because they they do feel about regional anger today. Kanchela went in a way that the characters now fictional disney bella. Thank you for coming on a really enjoyed reading your book. And it's great to me and to speak commits the dreams of your own women's on please be fulfilled your dream this morning.

And she's never had really bushy brows but have browse with china and more sculpted than average browse. This spot more conversation in the beauty world and thanks to all things nineties trending at the moment which you'll see every way thin- browse are actually back. But don't worry we're not talking about that pencil thin sort of one hair. And that's all you've got weight is talking about more of an odd and more sculpted and coveted confirmed it. They interviewed new based brow expert. Joey healy and he said yes. It's influenced by the nineties but what we're saying is a bit more structure so instead of that boy brow that was really beacon straight with stray hairs everywhere.

Obviously when i wrote about it hurt. My soul's took me ages to grow out of my butchered thin browse. I have naturally quite thick brows. But i think it's really good. Because i don't think everyone falls into that kind of bushy brow- car delving category so it doesn't mean you can't find a trend to match your browse since ted if using product after product to kind of fill them in and make them really bushy. I think it's great to see a trend that kind of encourages people to work with what they've got. I agree and to be honest. I was never going to have that. Really bushy-browed look it just wasn't possible with my brows eyed thin them out too much and it just wasn't what i had so i've kind of gone from eighty brow with a bit of lift at the art because that's what suit in my face so suddenly i'm on trend and i didn't even try. I mean show my brows nee doing in the pandemic because they haven't been done for quite a while but i'm all for this and i'm also you know what who cares about trans. Just do whatever suits you face

"bella" Discussed on The Get Foxy Show
"Thank you so much for taking the time today to speak with us. You are an author and you author some pretty interesting books.

We talk passionate. Living and i felt like you've kind of fit the categories in passionate living and holistic health because these books are to help kids process their emotions correct. That is correct. These it is about holistic health because processing emotions is an aspect of healthy living. That really isn't doesn't have a whole lot of attention. Paid to and we need to open that discussion and and really teach people how to process their emotions when you think about so one of my.

There's overwhelming emotions if there's violence there's overwhelming emotions with isolation and with substance abuse that is simply an escape from the emotions and so when we teach children age eight to twelve how to process their emotions. They can enter the teen years from a balanced place.
