NAACP leader on diversity in Biden's Cabinet and commitment to civil rights
"Speech days after the election, Joe Biden think black voters for helping him win the White House. The African American community stood up again. For many with always having my back on, I'll have yours. Now. There's some concern that Biden isn't making good on that promise. At least seven civil rights groups are pressing to meet with the president elect, including the end of the P and the National Urban League. They want Biden to name or black leaders to top jobs in his administration. Marc Morial leads the Urban League mark. Welcome. Hey, it's great to be with you. Thank you for having me. My pleasure. And if and when you get a meeting with the President elect, what will you tell him? So importantly way look forward to a direct communication with the president elect, and we're gonna reaffirm our interest on behalf of the community that the number of Diverse cabinet members, particularly African Americans. Prominent and every level of the body Administration Cabinet sub cabinet. As well as at the White House. You know, we want to give the president elect due credit. He chose an excellent running mate, Senator Harris. He's made an important appointment of Cecilia Rouse, his chair of the president's Council of Economic Advisors, and Linda Thomas Greenfield as U. N ambassador. But we're heavily focused. What's known as a statutory Cabinet, defense and justice and transportation and commerce and labor and hot and education and HHS, For example, that is where The important levers of power are We're going to communicate that to him, and the second thing will be communicating. Eyes our interest in the public policy arena. We need aggressive enforcement of civil rights laws. We need strong investments through both stimulus. And infrastructure plans, and we need Focus on long term issues of racial justice, criminal justice reform, police justice reform just to name a few high priorities and finally With respect to cove it we need to ensure That the vaccine is safe and effective for all people and that there is a community based distribution system. To ensure that people in our community have access to the vaccine. I guess What I'm trying to understand is if you are actually concerned with what you've seen so far, or if you're just trying to get ahead of the process, As you point out, there have been many black officials appointed to keep jobs in the Biden administration says they're not done yet. Yeah, I think it's both. And I think it's uh they've been to statutory Cabinet nominees thus far. Treasury Three rather Treasury homeland security as well as the State Department, and that's important and we do have a concern and we do want to get ahead of the process and We want to be clear that we're looking for a cabinet. When it comes to African Americans and meets but really exceeds the high water marks of the Clinton and Obama cabinets. This is a different time. And the president elect is made of important public commitment to racial justice, and I believe he's serious about that, but toe execute that He's got to have people who have lived experiences. As well as professional qualifications, along with connections to the communities that have borne the brunt of the country's systemic racial injustice. Look, there's no doubt having a diversity of opinions from all walks of life is critical in any leadership role, but make the case why Race matters so much here. Ben Carson. I'm thinking of Ben Carson, a black housing secretary. I assume you don't agree at all with his policies on many black leaders At the same time, we're saying that outgoing Senator Doug Jones, a white man would make a great attorney general because of his record fighting for civil rights. So let me say this. Van Carson is a great doctor. I never thought Ben Carson was qualified. To be secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development. I thought he would have made made a great surgeon general. You made a great secretary of health. Human services. I think it was an example of picking a quote unquote black person and putting him in what some perceive to be a black position at the Department of Housing and Urban Development. And I think it was It was a mistake, and I think it was a disservice to Ben Carson. So I mean, it's important. Understand this is not just about a black face in a certain place.

"It. S Yeah I want to hear about you talk about police. So let me know when you're setup this have a bit of a preface to it. So please don't skip a had. I promise. This is not going to be dislike lefty rant on a subject that I'm not prepared to give you those later I promise. It's my word. Five, four, three, two, one. So. This is a book club. We gotta talk about books as we've already mentioned this episode, there's a lot of writing about the police and Black House is a crime procedural after all. Now, this episode is being recorded in August of twenty twenty protests about police brutality and overreach are occurring in the city that I'm recording in today. But before anyone starts hammering the skip ahead, thirty seconds button let me preface my needful themes by saying this. I'm not going to be talking about state of real criminal justice here. That's very much not my lane. What I can talk about however is the set of troops that make up our shared cultural understanding of law enforcement especially within the context of Black House. So with that out of the way, let's talk about police as a genre convention. Now, just as a review trope is a common theme or literary device De gay best friend for example, is a trope overuse of trope. becomes full-blown cliche. The gay best friend is also a cliche. Now, what I'm proposing here is that we talk about police behaviors in crime procedural as a set of tropes, traceable patterns across writing, for example, the trope of the epic detective. Now, the idea of a protagonist who needs to solve things as their primary motivation is not new thinks, Sherlock Holmes but its application to. Police fiction is probably best traced through the Nuwara and hardboiled fiction booms of the nineteen thirties and forties. Since that point, the intrepid investigator has become a staple of police fiction through syndicated television I'm partial to Colombo myself, and we see it here in Black House Jack Sawyer is motivated as a character overall by the need to solve mysteries, which is why he became a homicide detective. So, not all tropes as noble as we see in Black House, there is a repeated through line in this book about the essential goodness of police and the essential nastiness of the people in the community. This is also a trope. We've seen this one before on the program. If listeners might remember Dean coon says the face as well. There's a hearty serving of. Division in that book and personally I, find the US versus them trope kind of jarring because I'm not in a police officer. You know why would I agreed that civilians? Me Are essentially ignorant and so ignorant as to be at best quaint and at worst deserving violence and so this is where the meat is. We have arrived police violence in media is itself. Contained within tropes ENQUESO shades here's a list right the loose cannon cop will do anything to obtain a confession the quote unquote necessarily breaching protocol because the case demands it. The extra judicial punishment doled out two suspects who deserve more than what the courts will give them in this book alone police officers acting in their official capacity caused multiple concussions, Gut Punch, reporters. And destroy evidence with a stunning regularity. Now, within the context of this book, those actions are justified as they result in eventual rescue of a boy and the saving of reality itself but the main point this podcast, the idea we go back to again and again is that media matters. It informs how we see the world what behaviors are acceptable and which ones aren't. You know what makes a hero? What makes villain? These are not lessons that we learn from textbooks or laws, but from popular media and when popular media makes excuses for state sanctioned violence when popular media insists that the police need to be able to use force against journalists and citizens alike, when popular media teaches us that the police work is inherently US versus them we have a problem three to one and. Yeah, we sure. Do Probe. If you're looking for more kind of on this general topic I highly recommend the podcast running from cops, which is about the reality show cops and its follow up kind of spiritual successor live PD. A lot of this has to do with the whole like our media are art. Is a representation of our reality especially in mass literature in mass market paperback. It's what people think personified and that's why it's so important with these big issues like I. Don't think you could get away with this book right now. Now you certainly can, and it's important to look at the context in which it came out. This book came out in two thousand and one. Now, that's a very particular moment for this topic because it's post Rodney King, but it's during this huge nationalistic jingoistic moment in America where people are reeling from nine eleven. So it's a really weird little intersection and in that intersection that these are the tropes that people are going to for comfort is important to think of remember this book wasn't written during nine eleven book was in two thousand and published on the Friday when nine eleven happened on Tuesday. Right. So this is the kind of cultural context that we can bring the response to that tragedy from. And that's why I think why it's important to talk about troops in media and mass market media in general around hot button issues, you know it can be uncomfortable and we might not agree on you know say the specifics of police reform or the rhetoric that we should use around this stuff like we might not agree on that. But I hope that we can all agree that we should pay more attention to what is happening in our media because it shapes what happens in our minds absolutely and that is why we are not the Tom Clancy Boo club. Every episode like this and those books are still coming out yeah. Yeah, and then he popular and the thing is I have to specify this right good writing..

I'm Steven Andrew Sano. In Dime Phoenix Crockett and this week we are reading Black House published by Stephen King and Peter Straub in two thousand one. Now quick note this book is the sequel to the Talisman which we covered all the way back in episode seventeen. Definitely check that one out I. If you haven't heard, it haven't read that book because some of this is going to sound like Ali good. It yet. Phoenix now. Spoilers for this episode, Phoenix was not very. To this book. would you like me to take the main points? I would love it if you would. Great. The events of the towels men are twenty years in the past. Jack Sawyer the adult had a productive career as an l., A. P. D. Detective and lieutenant, but now he lives in. French. Landing Wisconsin retired in his early thirties after becoming a little bit famous. He leaves the force because of a crime in Santa Monica that threatens to break open his repressed memories about the territories and the violence he saw there as well the final battle that he won. The police chief of French landing Dale Gilbertson calls him and begs him to leave his retirement behind and join them in the hunt for a prolific. Albert fish copycat killer called the fishermen. Albert fish targeted children and often committed highly violent crimes and the fishermen follow suit. Jack Initially Says No. But after the fourth murder, he can no longer sit on his hands after following the lied about a spooky abandoned house. The Black House Jack Decides that his leading suspect is the architect of the House one. Charles. burnside. Burnside is eighty five years old and lives at an elder care facility. He needs a steady supply victims and so he allows the high ranking Demon Mr Munson actual name Lord more dread courtier of the Crimson King to inhabit him. In exchange, he captured some children but does not kill them instead selling them into slavery to work in the mind that exist in the flipside universe called the territory's. Lord mortared needs young tele paths to help destroy the dark tower as breakers. The latest and most powerful breaker is to Tyler Marshall Local ten-year-old and his breaking or shining may be strong enough to finally bring down the dark tower. Jack is brought up to speed on all of this by the would be gunslinger parkas twitter of his old friend speedy Parker when he involuntarily flips for the first time since he was twelve. The territories are very different place from how he had left them. The economy has collapsed in the outer areas while Jack is in the territories he meets Sophie, the New Young Queen and falls in love with her. This queen is the winner of Judy Marshall Mother of the Abductee Tyler. Jack flips back to our world to find a case that has become more complicated. It turns out that the Black House is a nightmarish portal, the territories and possibly other ROB's When burnside kills four more children and Jack's best friend. Jack Chases him to the House and together they flip into end world the farthest region of the territories and the region where the dark tower and Ken Toy live burnside nearly dead flees to the furnace lands where many of the mines arm and he attempts to steal tyler for his own dark uses. But Tyler fights back disembowelling and killing him Jack flips back and gathers resources as well as the chief of police and a biker gang of five dudes. One of whose victims father they go through the booby-trapped haunted Black House together and flip into the furnace lands where they battled luncheon in a Western. Style shoot off at high new. Jack Kills, Him with a baseball bat that soaked in the residual energy from the Talisman. Jack Van Tells Tyler that Tyler has the ability to psychically blow up the big combination, a quasi nuclear power plant owned by the Crimson King and staffed by child slaves thereby saving thousands of Children Tyler does. So then reunites with his mother Judy, the black houses destroyed and all of the children from many different realms spill into the streets French landing Jack Holt to press conference for the public a few weeks later speedy parker is in attendance looking on with pride. The. Wife of a man Jack had put away many years earlier is also in attendance and she shoots Jack. With a handgun speedy flips Jack into the territories in an attempt to save his life this works and as jack passes out the ground in the Queen's Pavilion Parkas Tells Queen Sophie that Jack's body cannot go back to the regular world again as he is now a territories creature. Now it's time for full dark no structure. Okay. So remember how at the top we that if you didn't know what happened in the towels, men none of that would make any goddamn sense well. Here, we are welcome to black has a book nearly incomprehensible in its own right much more. So if you don't know what's happening in the dark tower universe or in the towels man, and so we're going to get Dr Tower very soon. Next next time everything's eventual. Then we're doing the first four dark tower books and because we're getting to that point where Stephen King is starting to assume his readership has read the dark tower for his unrelated novels to make sense this book is more dark tower than some of the dark tower books. It does more for the plot than some of the actual dark tower books I will say. Having never read any of the dark tower books this was. This is very strange reading experience. There's a weird thing in the fantasy here where he doesn't make up new fantasy words, he just uses English words to name and his family were is fantasy world and it makes everything very strange. That's it's a strange as book I have this problem were like. This book is. I had this problem with this book is very cynical in its writing. There's two types of person in this book. There's bad people who are. Like very. Mean and only in things for the money and don't give a shit about anyone but themselves, and then there's good people who are about to have something tragic happen to them. There is no middle ground. It's not so much like morally complex kind of town. Light Salems law was a town full of people that were kind of complex. This is not that this is a town full of people that are either very bad people or a saintly good people who are about suffer. For sure and there's also this book it doesn't really feel like a King Book La time partially because half of it's not but like for example, a set in Wisconsin, and I didn't pick up on any of the you know we have down east wisdom because was a lot of Wisconsin. `ISMs where you can also tell us a whole chapter that's Based on Poe's the Raven. Sewing Ham fisted acme with our fucking wooden spoon. That chapter suck had to be Straw being like I knew it Stephen King's people want. Yeah we had a conversation midway through reading this book where I was like it feels like this wasn't edited and your theory was that Stephen King is an author who when given, the chance will just pour out whatever he's Phelan and Peter Straub maybe did not rain in any of Stephen King's ideas and so you end up with these crazy looping sentences these characters that don't do anything but be kind of vaguely cool..

"So for you, I know we kind of talked about a lot of the problems we had with this, but I don't think we were too negative about it where you somewhere in the same range, are you more in like a two? A half range? No, I think I think today. It would be three for me I when I remember when I read it when I first read it, I, really really liked it even though I was sort of put off by the change of tone and the change of even genre from the Talisman, but I really enjoyed it. When I first read it and now i. I, I don't think it's his best work I. Don't think it's obviously worse because I've finished it unlike the Tommy knockers I, think it's like right in the middle for me. I think that some of the things that they that he does. He does really well in this book, but I just feel like the middle section. Didn't really do anything it didn't. Increase the tension at all, it didn't. Really create any real obstacles that weren't solved in the same scene it. So it just kind of felt like in the middle part if if that had been a little bit. Stronger focus like you. You had mentioned kind of focusing more on Jack Jack and not having all these. Minor. Characters is sort of flipping out. I think that if if they had focused on that and this probably would have been a four five book, but as a as it is, now I think that there's some things does really well, and there's some things that I don't think it does necessarily to the best. Yeah. It's one of those where. A lot of the time when I was reading it, I was like. Okay. This is fine. Yeah. Okay. This part got good and like you said, those last hundred pages, everything ramps up. So I think when I finished it, I was like just on in like on the wait. All. Right. Let's go. Let's go. Yeah. It really the last under pages which I believe. Stephen King wrote himself without Straw based on that interview. I. I. listened to it builds to such a thrilling climax that like by the end of it, I'm like, yeah. Yeah. Yeah. But the beginning part of it and the the constant changing of perspectives from being like a third person present to just sort of throwing in the the US in the weeds and the the realization realization that we are reading a story just sort of. Pulled me out of the narrative where I don't think that was necessarily the intention. Yeah. Well, it seems like we're pretty much on the same page with this one and Terry I'm very glad you decided to pick this one to discuss because I know I've been trying to get a bunch of new guests and then I was like, okay. This spreadsheets gang a little crazy right now. But I feel like I still have enough books and movies and TV shows to go around for hopefully everyone, and I'm very glad I was able to. Get you on for at least one episode here an as we know now. Yeah. Thank you so much for having me on. It was I. I, love revisiting books of his that I haven't read forever and even though I probably did have some complaints about this one. It was a fantastic chance to reread it and then have a discussion. So I I really do appreciate you having me on. Yeah. Well, hopefully, I will be able to have you on. Again. I know king is still writing things and there are still eight hundred patients in the works. So I'm sure we'll be able to work something else out. All right that does it for this episode of Chat. Cemetery. You can support the podcast on. Patriot, Fan for a dollar a month.

"Combination is that what it was called. We're all these breakers that he's been collecting over the years and you know the the idea of the breakers is sort of like these these people with like either the shining like I think Danny, Torrance, could've potentially been a breaker if he was like captured. So they all these people that have these supernatural. Are brought to this place to like destroy the beams that are holding the dark tower and basically universe together, and so in that way, this book has like a lot of like reprecussions through the series. Because if if this kid had been brought to the Crimson King, he probably could have destroyed the dark tower and that we would have no more story, select the stakes in this are like really really large, but it's not. I don't think it's really explored. So Mu- enough. that it feels like it's not that huge of a but really. In the whole grand scheme of things if if jacket had failed. The dark tower would be no more. Yeah. Because you find out that tyler is one of the most powerful breakers they've ever had and. Even though Tyler is obviously a here kind of like. Oh. You could have gotten rid of this even worse thing. You Know Jack obviously is doing the right thing by saving all of these kids and especially, tyler but. It's one of those moral questions where you're like, okay. Do you sacrifice for the greater good in the long run road because there are obviously. More consequences to come the longer, the dark tower is still standing. Right. Yeah but I also really I I really enjoyed. Well, enjoyed might not be the right thing, but it was really. Involved in Tyler's escape plan like that was even reading it. Knowing how it was going to end. It was sort of it was still a kind of a moment of like oh? Gosh, this is intense and it's really good. Gory, how he ends up escaping by? Pulling out intestines of Charles burnside. It's kind of directly comic to talk about it, but in the moment, it's like. It's This book is dark. Yeah and obviously the Black House appropriately titled for. Everything that goes on in there and I think with the story. There aren't really any loose ends, but you have these characters and the is. Storylines, where you're Kinda like, okay, they could continue if they wanted to. So do you think you would read of Third Book if King and Straub were to write one, obviously I would have to but. I think. I, would like I. said I've I've I keep up I haven't been as great like I haven't read his his latest Short Novella Collection. It. It bleeds. I think it's called if it blades Ya if it bleeds. Yeah. So there's been a couple of his recent books that I haven't gotten to yet. But I I owned them and I intend to read them because I'm I'm constant reader I'm going to read whatever whatever he puts out I might not like it. So yeah, I probably would read a third book but I gotTA. Say. I. Really. Did Not like the way the kind of Coda at the end of this. Okay. I. It's funny. Reading this after reading. I'm I'm I'm going to drop this, and it's going to be a little bit of a spoiler, but it's not gonna be that big. Not GonNa really dive into it, but the way this book ends with like a where he tells the reader to stop reading. kind of gets referenced again in the Dark Tower. Okay. So there's this moment of like reader. You're not gonna like what's going to happen next? Stop reading and it kind of felt. I, Dunno. Felt kind of cheap to me maybe because we don't really know this character that well. So, like it's not. It's it's not like the woman that ends up shooting him and killing him. It's obviously because of his case that he did prior to. Living in this town. And is what kind of brought him to this town? But like. It just sort of felt kind of tacked on at the end to me. Yeah. One of the things I talk about a lot are his endings because he'll toss in these epilogues and I'm like you didn't need that at all. Yeah, and it kind of felt like a way of pulling him back into obviously about pulling back into the territories and back into the you know. The Dr Tower and world all world mythos type thing and keeping them stuck there because he can no longer. Really spend a lot of time in on our version of earth yeah. Sometimes I do feel that king kind of like flops at the ending, and this is definitely one of those. Where have you have you read? tweeting, you have seen the outsider television show. Have you read it I watched that, but I have not read the book yet. Okay. It kind of felt like that scene that's in that in the outsider. Though, right with like the kind of sets off the story of that one where it's like someone gets shot and it sort of like comes out of nowhere. But I feel that it was kind of executed better in that then in here and I think that the Coda of the dark tower. Works, better in the dark tower than it does here. Again I. DON'T WANNA spoil it. So I'm just GONNA leave it at that. But like okay, it's it's interesting I thinking about how this book in some ways feels almost like a starter for some of the things that he wants to explore later on in the next twenty years of his writing career. Yeah, and he always. Seems. He's willing to come back to certain stories and I can't imagine he's ever really done with the dark tower or the territory's. Yeah I I agree with that. I'll I'll just leave it at that I do think that he'll probably go back to the dark tower at some point Oh? For sure the wheel keeps turning. Yeah. So ratings I ended up bumping this from four to three out of five, just because I was kind of excited about where it might go when I I finished reading it. But then I sat with it for a couple of days before we discussed it here and I was like that how on you know and I was like I, think I missing some details here and the fact that we struggled with? Judy's name I think goes to show that. That, they just had too much going on to keep every single story line completely straight..

"Now, it's something where I'm like, okay. Is this something that didn't age well and is forgivable or did it just straight up? Not Age? Well? It makes sense. Yeah, and I think with this, it's. A little hit or miss because you know that this character is a good character and you just get a sense that. He. Was Ridden in this very specific way for you know this time period and then to look at it now you're Kinda like, oh. Okay. Maybe that didn't work as well as they were hoping didn't hold up as well as they were hoping and you know with so many characters. And the story getting a little muddied by you really get a sense that they may be should've just focus the story a little more and. Because you have the murders, the black. House. The territory's all of the dark tower references. It's like, yes, it's all connected. But I feel like a narrower focus would have benefited this story. Yeah I. I, agree and I I really wish that it may be had focused more on Jack Verses, the Albert fish standing, and then maybe went a little wild in the like. If. This was a film in the Third Act of the of the story, the last third of the book. Because I, think Charles Burn burnside is a as a fascinating horrible, but fascinating villain and. You'll start to see this a little bit more. In. Some of his works as you start to read in the two thousands, but the way. King would pull in real life people. In this particular case, they they namedrop Albert Fish. Of course, who I didn't know was when I I read this book. I thought he was just a creation that Stephen King had had written. He is a horrible person. Yes. Very much. So I went down like spirals of like figuring out like searching who this Albert fish was I was like appalled. At. The serial killer that I knew nothing about yen I. Think it's because he wasn't as flashy like a Ted. Bundy had kemper or even you know as. Well known as Jack The ripper, which is you know probably one of the first serial killers at least, and you really get a sense that there are some of these people who have become. So infamous that. They're used as inspiration for these utterly horrible characters I had heard of Albert Fish. I haven't looked into the details of what he's done, and after reading this, I kind of don't need to know what? To do and you really just get a sense that some of these serial killers in real life have such this sort of aura about them that they. are known well beyond their years. You know people are going to know who? Charles? Manson. Is for a while even though he's now dead if I'm not mistaken, right? Yeah. You'RE GONNA know him here. No Ted. Bundy. You'RE GONNA. Know All these and obviously Jack The ripper like I said earlier, that's probably one of the most obvious. Is. He has lasted forever and to be perfectly honest. Do not go down the rabbit hole I did of searching about. Albert Fish, just do what Charles Dozen his book is. Is Pretty much on point with what that man did, and they also namedrop and I can't remember the name. But they named munch talks about this other person that he followed along for a while and I looked at him and he also had a similar predilection to what Albert Fish and Charles burnside had in this in this book, and I found that kind of fascinating to like look us horror as a lens to understand evil in the real world. and. The way that Stephen King would pull in real life events into his book to kind of. Flesh out historian, make it feel like it's set in the real world So I actually kind of appreciated that. Even though I wish I'd never read anything about Albert. Yeah it's one of those things where if you aren't familiar with certain people and then you go down the rabbit hole, you're like, oh no, why did I do this I can't see any of it. Yeah, yeah. WHOA. So once the dark tower references become like full-throttle in the go into the end world I believe is where they're at in in the dark tower area. What did you think about the change into that into that in that direction? With the ending I thought, it was interesting because I kind of wanted to spend more time on what was going on in Jack's world, and you really get a sense that. Once he goes over to the territories and he starts getting deeper and deeper into things there with Parkas and Sophie you're Kinda like. Okay, where exactly is this going to go and then you see how the book ends and you're like, okay. I understand why it happened this way, but then the fact that. It's kind of left at that and you mentioned that Jack doesn't really make any sort of appearance in the dark tower books after this. It leaves me wondering if. King and Straub did that on purpose because of those rumors of a possible third novel? Yeah. The thing that I find interesting is. This does this book does sort of. Give a an important event in the dark tower series because it's. It's one of those times where the Crimson King fails, and like a major setback is is. His plans because he has this What is called the big?.

"Very weird moment. Yeah, and that's what I mean by their shoes so much going on in this too because you and I both blanked on Judy's name. While I. Guess. At first, it was one of those things where I was like wait is that the characters name and I just went to Stephen King's website and looked at the. Character for Black House, and it just goes and goes and goes because it is even putting in. You know people like. Kurt cobain because he's mentioned in passing. So listing every single person mentioned in this and aside from those kind of pop culture references with. Kurt, Cobaine Scooby, Doo, either all these random things? It's hard to tell you know who even an actual character in the book at this point, because you have Jack, obviously, as the main character, you have Parkas, who is the twitter of speedy Parker and you have like I said, all of those sort of guys you have the reporter who is trying to get in the way you have the feds, you have the state police. You know you just have a so many different groups of characters that come and go, and then you have all of the guys which I wasn't totally sure if they were also the biker guys. Guys. But Jack is the one who hires them to kind of go. Look for the black. House. Yeah. Those are the bikers. The Guy I think the part that doesn't work the most for me. I, realize I'm being negative about books. I did enjoy reading it, but there's just so many things that like jumped out at me, and the bikers are the thing that I really didn't care for. Yeah. Because you know in that in that interview I found straps says that the book is about a man at the edge of edge of middle age and feels like. It's sort of nostalgic for these other kinds of of characters like the kind of. Motorcycle Club. People that are not the hell's angels, but you know they are gruff. To see four and they carry guns and regarded is like you know bad asses but. You know they're not the hells angels. They're sort of like on the opposite side of being a thin line between being a good gloat cycle club and like a bad one, and it just seems. Kind of brings to mind the sort of like. I can imagine to middle aged men going wouldn't this be great to be part of this kind of club? That's sort of on the cusp of being bad asses. And I feel the same way about Jackie almost he almost feels like he's too perfect. In a way like. The Times when bad things happen to him, it's always the result of someone else. It's never a mess up on his part. It's always someone else. It's like window green, the reporter gets. Involved in, he has to beat them up which in a world that we're currently living watching police brutality against reporter regardless of how horrible reporter is. It's a little. Awkward to watch because it's presented as like. He's kind of he's kind of like an like a modern gunslinger that would be in in the dark tower like even gets his posse together at the very end to sheet up the bad guys, right? Yeah. There's even a mention of gunslinger in this too. So you're Kinda like, okay, they're Kinda. Hitting the nail on the head with this and. You really get a sense that because there are so many characters. It's kind of like. Well, maybe we just focus on Jack. Maybe, he is the most important piece of this puzzle, and while that does end up being true for the most part, you have a character like Henry who plays such a big role in this because of his abilities, he can kinda just sense things about people like he knows when Jack is worrying without. Jack. Even saying anything or doing anything really, and you just have these characters with these amazing abilities, but because Jack Sawyer is in this. This and the he's this hotshot retired detective and his mother was an actress. All of the attention is put on him for a lot of the story, right? I. You bring up. Henry. And I'm kind of curious what you think of the character because my opinion of him has changed a lot in the last twenty years I thought he was very interesting in the sense that king likes to give at least one character, these powers that really. Don't have a ton to do with the story, but help the story along in a way because it's kind of like when you have. Charlie in fire starter. How she? And her powers are really what drives the plot of that story because then you have the shop going after her and I feel like with Henry. He was kind of there to help push the story along when Jack would kind of get stuck on something. Yeah, I I, agree with that and I I will say on the positive note his. The sequence where he ends up getting killed, was I. Thought was Pretty Harrowing. just the idea of him being in the in his recording studio and. He can't see, but there's you know Charles burnside standing outside of his his his window like just staring at him, wearing his his wife's Cologne doused in his wife's Cologne, and just the idea of of him of Charles having that kind of conversation with. Mr Manchin. Who is like inhabiting his body at the same time? I thought that was actually a very effective scene. Yeah, and you also have the fact that things ramp up even more to because you have. That whole scene with Henry and then. You have that end scene where you know it's kind of like that typical. It's almost like a law and order svu scene or something like coming out of the courthouse and someone yells gun, and then someone gets shot and you're like Oh okay that felt very police procedural of them. but the thing that like I guess, my opinion is kind of changed on on Henry over the years. Is that when? When? I, I read this, I was like amused about his ability to take on multiple on your personalities. And like present, you know the the kind of like rocker that would play a song by what was it the dirty sperm. And then he would also be like. A sports reporter, and he would be bombastic kind of like over the top. It almost felt like a conservative pundit in some ways. And It just it feels like now I see so much demagoguery on television that I feel like in some ways, Henry is kind of a definite cog in the making before he gets killed because like he takes on all these different personalities to either entertain or to kind of like speak to different audiences. But like. Isn't that kind of what a lot of demagogues on television do now, that are sort of like speaking to their audience, and they might not necessarily agree with what they're saying. But they know that it's going to be good and it's going to like get some people riled up and that it's it's such a weird, and that's why I feel like this book in some ways as aged incredibly well, because I, see. This character, who's obviously in the book a good guy, he's a good character. He's. He's tragically. Tragic Hero. and. Especially when you compare him to someone like window green, who's just comically an evil person and I see this character and I look at it now through. All the the politicians that I see out there or the the AM radio hosts or the. People that are presenting quote unquote news on different television programs that are being like influencer, or you know that kind of like media person and it's such a weird point of view to see him now. Yeah unfortunately. I don't have that experience of having read this right when it came out but. What I've noticed is that certain things hold up with King and? Wall. Some of the language used doesn't especially from his seventies and eighties books and even some of the nineties books. I'm trying to look at everything from the time period, it was written and released because. While, it's still important to look at things from a twenty twenty Lens..

"Oh, I would think you would just WanNa do these. Yourself may be happier shroud co right on something like insomnia where it ties in, but it's not so heavily reliant on some of the main aspects of the dark tower. And kind of wonder if this is a way of sort of ret conning the Talisman into the dark tower series because like in the Talisman you know they talk about territories and. It's not so much necessarily connected to the dark like right and I feel like, maybe this is a way of trying to. Tie in all of his books into. Into the series. But as you'll experience when you start three the last third. Every single book that he has ever written is part of this and that's why I think it's so fascinating for you to go through this chronologically because you will start to see that like he really does see the dark tower is the center of his work and everything else that's coming out of it. Is connected to it whether as blatantly as the dark tower or is is like even? Not. Even mentioning it in like Salems Lot. I mean, there are things that will start to show up. So I'm really curious to see what what you're going to get to when you finally get to those last three, those last three books. Yeah, and there have been some obvious ones like. A lot of people know that the stand is sort of a prequel to do stuff that's happening in the dark tower. You have rose matter which brings up the dark tower like I said, the insomnia has some sort of connection. If I'm not mistaken and you find that a lot of his books will bring it up. especially, you know like eyes of the Dragon, which is so out there you're like Oh okay. This is very clearly tied to the dark tower, but as taking place in such a different place in time, it really feels like he just wanted to have the central universe where he could branch off and do a bunch. Bunch of different things and have some stuff that doesn't really explicitly say that it's tied to the dark tower because some stories are so rooted in dairy or castlerock that you're not thinking about the dark tower Wani Repos right and I think kind of going back to the weirdness of having a CO writer on this. If you were someone that you're only experience with Stephen King was the talisman because you were key us a fan. You would be so confused because I mean we're talking breakers were talking Blaine the train talking Patricia Talking Demon named Munshin. Re talking like Abba Crimson, King, go all of these things that if you aren't. Well read in the dark tower is just GonNa, go completely over your head. It's weird. Yeah and I definitely liked the territory's part in this. But I think at the same time they were throwing so much at us to where I was like. Okay, wait. Is it more important that he's in the territories right now or are all of these dark tower references more important, and you know we still have this whole murder thing going on to and this Black House that seems to be very, very harmful to whoever comes near it and tries to go in it, and you have so many moving parts to this story I. Feel like it was just too crowded and I don't WanNa, say they should have made it longer to explain these things even more, but it feels like there should have been two different books maybe. I completely get that because I do think that the middle section of this kind of it's not I wouldn't. I'm not exactly sure what to call it. I don't think it's necessarily a slog, but there's a lot that goes on that doesn't really. Have much to do with anything. It's sort of like a much ado about nothing like there's there's all of these fake escalations that kind of pull into what a lot of what Stephen King likes to do, where he sets up a situation and then knocks out upon or like. Throws something into the mix to see how people are GonNA react and I'm talking about. In, particular case, it happens twice the first one being when they find Irma's body and like it becomes like this whole cluster because I've decided to tell his wife who in typical Stephen King fashion decides to be a chatty Kathy and spread the news all around town so that all of a sudden everyone towns descending on this this little thing. But it almost felt like a in that regard because it has like you have a situation, you have an escalation in the by the end of it. It didn't seem like anything was. Felt like everything was back together like it just hit that kind of status quo normalcy, and then it happens again in front of the Police Department where our killer has framed. Is it George Potter I think his name all right frames. This guy as being the fishermen killer and the entire town again descends on it because Did. Mention his engorge. His has manipulated Irma's mother in into. kind of leading the sort of like witch hunt against capturing George. But then that whole thing kind of ends out, just resolving itself and not really having much of an effect on the rest of the story. So. It was I, found myself kind of. In this weird situation where I was like, what? What is kind of the point of this Middle Section? And for a book that's like Really Long I. The characters don't seem to really be that developed in my opinion. I was curious what you thought. Especially because there's so many characters, route, Roy wait, there's like the biker guys and then there's the. Reporter Guy There's the people at the home that you know. I'm even spacing on her name is Judy. Julie I don't even know. That's how bad this is. I think part of that might be them trying to. To. Bring in their images to like bleak house. 'cause bleak house has so many little minor characters and stories that sort of it's sort of like a slice of life kind of I it. So I don't know if that's what they're trying to go for his like create the sort of like real world is town. So we get to meet all these different characters that ultimately don't. Figure into the plot, but I feel like. We don't really get because of that. I don't feel like we really get to know any of the characters they sort of like get that kind of stock trope of or like like in the bikers you have doc, he's a doc because he used to be, you know doctor, you have like Beezer. WHO's the father of one of the missing kids like you have. These characters basically have a little trope attached to them or like character trait that we don't get to really get to know. Really. Does that make sense? I. Am I reading that wrong? No, it makes complete sense I'm just so annoyed that I can't even remember the lady's name and it's like the one falls in love with. Yes. Yes. That I believe is judy and. Like that that whole thing I'm glad. Judy, and Sophie are winners. The twitter's and I'm really glad that they introduced her her twitter because like this is kind of awkward that he meets US woman and it's like all of a sudden. Unabashedly in love with her to the point that he wants to have an affair with her almost..

"I don't like the book immediately following the those things because I did not like the Tommy knockers did not particularly care for dream catcher and it's just super weird how that happened. It was so funny to hear you talk on the previous episode about not liking the Tommy knockers because that is honestly the one Steven King Book I've never finished. I've not. I don't even know how it ends because I got maybe one hundred pages into it was like, no, I'm done with S. if it weren't for this podcast, I probably would not have finished it. It was such a chore. It was one of those books where you started and you're just like, oh This is going to feel like work whereas sometimes I do get backed up like you know we're recording this literally the Friday before it's going to come out. So I got a little backed up on reading, and that's when I sort of get stressed out and I'm like, okay, gotTa gotTa make get through these next few books here and it feels more like a chore then but. If I can plan far enough in advance. I, give myself time a little more time. Any way to sort of have everything sink an after I've read a book instead of just going up finished one got a stir one the same day. Yeah I mean and I. Don't think this book is shorter read. I. Actually enjoyed reading through it. Even though the were a lot of link moments that kind of pulled me out of it, but I don't think it's top tier king. What do you think I think? It's very middle of the road because like I. said, there have only been a couple of things that I haven't really enjoyed and I'm not super into a bunch of his short story collections because they can be such such A. A mixed bag, I do like the novella collections more than the short story collections typically, and I know some of the short story ones do include novellas here and there. But for the most part, it falls kind of in that place for me. It's kind of like the short story collections where I'm like, okay, I really liked this story or this part and not this part, and because you mentioned how the writing changes and it's like the point of view is fairly inconsistent. You're like wait. Okay. You're talking to me. You're not telling me about something and it just felt like it needed a better voice I do think that this is one of those cases I think this would have been a more interesting book if only one person had written. Yeah. To be honest although I, will say that I did appreciate the sort of like it almost a throwaway line, but a sort of like. Pay Off to the way it was described because at the very end of the book that kind of. Throw this line that we've been like following gorge the crow, and that's where we've been getting kind of like our. Top view ideas of the town and visions of the town is through this. This crow that has been kind of like a bad guy through the entire story. So I appreciate that it's kind of like. Oh. All right. That's why we're doing it. was. that. Worth it. Yeah, I, think it's interesting that he chose to do Co. rights for the. Talisman. And this book not because this is a sequel of the Talisman. But just because of how heavily the dark tower series seems to factor into these stories because. From what I can tell is the dark tower is sort of his central universe and so many of his books touch on it and I guess we can go ahead and talk about a bunch of these connections now. So anyone who hasn't read all of the dark tower or any of the dark tower, you know jump ahead here, all have. podcasts chapters in embedded in the MP three and everything. So you can do that easily but. There were so many references even if it was just in passing when they mention the Crimson King, the dark tower, the beams, and you have a mention of Ted brought again, who is central and hearts in Atlantis which you mentioned listening to that episode recently, and it was one of those things where I, was like, okay, he's putting all of these pieces together for us to kind of build up to something and I did see that there were rumors about a potential third novel involving Jack Sawyer. So I was very curious if. Jack comes back at some point and maybe I just haven't hit that point yet or if. You know there's a book that he hasn't read any yet because this sequel came twenty years after the Talisman and you know Dr Sleep came forty years after the shining. You know king takes his time writing sequels apparently. Yeah. You Know I. It kind of. Intimated, intimated in this book that he was going to feature in in later dark tower. Stories. But? It's been a minute since, I've read the dark tower, but I don't remember him ever showing up again, a lot of people show up in the last. Three books that he wrote like post accident. Okay. Of his character start to show up in their from his other books and I assume that's not including the wind through the Keyhole, which is technically like four point five. Yeah. No, that's actually I. Have Not read that one either so I'm I'm not very familiar with that one. I'm not very familiar with the sisters of Alaria, even though they're mentioned in this book as well. with little. Novella or short story. I think he wrote in the ninety S. have you have you covered that one? Is that in everything's eventual? That might be an. Eventual, let me look but yes, they they bring up that and there's this this kind of idea that maybe he would show up again and I don't remember him ever doing ever ever showing up again. I'm not one hundred percent. Sure what he plans on doing with the character. Yeah. So the little sisters of Loria is in everything's eventual, which is book immediately following this. Okay. This story itself was written prior to being collected. So it was written in. Ninety eight and that collection came out in two thousand and two. So not too terribly long before it was drone into one of his collections but. That will be interesting to see how that plays in because. There are so many mentions in here where I was like, okay. I know I should know what this means are, what implications this has, but sometimes my brain is like. I. Don't know you know. So when you get to the little sisters, hospital tents and he meets Sophie or like Oh okay. All right. I'm starting to kind of piece things together here. But because I haven't read the story even though it technically came out before this things are. Jumbled. Because I'm going chronologically by the collections, not by the every single short story published eight rate, right? That would that would be impossible to? I. Would Think, yeah, I. Didn't want to do that because I was like that. Would one double the number of episodes if I did it that way and just talk story by story because some of his collections will have like twenty stories in them and it's like do I wanNA. Talk about this baseball poem for an episode, Not really. The connections to the dark tower definitely, and I think that might be why I feel like this should have been a book written by King because in some cases, it kind of felt like. It did feel like someone else sort of fan writing a king story. If that makes sense. Yeah, I was surprised. He would give property like this over to someone else even if Peter Straub on his own is obviously a successful horror writer. But because of the importance of dark tower to me I was like..

"Everyone chat cemetery back today. I. Am Discussing Black House by Stephen King and Peter Straub with Terry Menard, and we are going to talk about some of the connections to the previous book, the Talisman and some dark tower connections which I know I've been bad at kind of giving spoiler warnings. But you know a lot of these books have been out for a long time as have the movies so. If you don't want to know anything about the dark tower series if you haven't finished it which I haven't either. But such is life. When you do a Stephen King podcast so I'll let you guys know when those connection discussions are going to be coming up but Terry, how are you doing today I'm good. I'm excited to be here to talk Black House and it's been a week but I am glad that it's Friday and I end the week talking about one of my favorite authors. Yeah, it has been a week. That's for sure and I find that. Sometimes, you know even when you don't like something as much as you were hoping, maybe it's still fun to have a discussion about it because what I've been trying to do, and hopefully everyone who's been listening along this far has noticed is. I try not to be too heavily critical of things there have been a few things that I haven't enjoyed. There have been some hilariously bad movies which are still fun to talk about and with Black House it really felt. Middle of the road I, think I was more excited about it. When it ended than I actually was you know sitting on it for a few days. So I know I was messaging you and I was like you know I bump this down to. A lower rating, and we'll discuss ratings at the end as usual here. But I just sat with it for a couple of days and I was like wait I actually don't remember a ton of the details. So maybe I didn't like it as much as I thought I, did or maybe it's just because it has been a wild week and I was still in the process of finishing the book when a bunch of crazy things happened but. For you. You know it had been a long time since you had read. This is this the second time you? You've read it then? Yes, this is the second time I read I, read it. I've been a constant readers since. I was young kid and So I pretty much read I. Think most of his books on release in the from liked about about the mid nineties on, I've probably read every one of his books when they first came out. So I read this back in two thousand one and it was really excited for it back then and I was really disappointed as a two thousand one. I. Would Have Been Twenty, twenty year old because. It was so different from the Talisman. In terms of like Sean right in terms of. What it was about in terms of everything that I think I was kind of hesitant to enjoy it back then and now I I like it. But. I think that it hasn't aged particularly well in twenty years since its release nineteen years. Yes. Yeah. Usually Stephen King is pretty good at keeping up with the times and I think sometimes with co co-writes. It's a little harder to because you're. Having these two different writing styles. Honestly, I'm someone who is so bad at recognizing reading style. So I didn't even really notice a huge difference between. King and strobes writing, and I felt the same about the. Talisman, and people were like, Oh, it was so obvious to me. I was like I don't know I just read the. Start to finish, that's what I did and. With. This one because it is a fairly lengthy book to the hardcover is six, hundred, twenty, five pages at least my copy is and you kind of get a sense that. When a story like black cows is not only connecting you back to the Talismen, but giving you more dark tower connections, it can feel like. It's overwhelming at times and I think with this, I was like, ooh, sort of murder mystery, serial killer, kind of thing that was like right up my alley, and then it got so weird and different, and it's like the Black House didn't even really come into play until the last third of the book maybe right, and that is probably my biggest complaint about. This book is that you call yourself black house and I kind of anticipated at being more of a character in the book. You know like I kind of expected king to focus more on maybe the history of the house or focus on the kind of evilness that's inside of this house, and it gets referenced here and there in the first. Like maybe four or five hundred pages, but it's not so like the last one, hundred that they're even going into by then it's such a brief detour. It's weird. I really thought it was going to be something like the overload. The shining where you really get to know the INS and outs of this place and just sort of the whole vibe behind it, and I was disappointed when we didn't really get that considering. It's the title of the book like You said, right? It also kind of works against them because obviously reading through the book even before I read it I, kind of thought that it was kind of a moshing like bleak house, the Gothic novel by Charles Dickens, and even in the book it's reference. You know they talk about bleak house and so I, kind of think that might have hinted at the style of writing because. I'm not a huge fan of the way it's written. The kind of constant breaks of the second person almost present tense where it's like, yeah, we're. We're addressing you. Now. We the writers are talking to you. and. I would find myself and I think kind of going back to what you were talking about in terms of not knowing. which part was written by whom I did a lot of search on this because I was kinda curious how they wrote this vice, how they wrote the Talisman and I did find an interview with Peter Straub where he talks about how they worked. a good notion of the tone and the Basic Center, the story together that they wanted to approach it as a man be at the beginning at the edge of middle, age that they wanted to base a villain on Albert Fish, which let's put a point in that for a moment and come back to that after that. So they had like all this stuff they work together and they basically than just left and Peter. STRAUB began writing the first fifty pages or so, and they would pass it off and on they went and Stephen King wrote the ending. wrote the like I have a feeling probably like the last like the black. House. And onward, I believe was probably mostly written by King. But it just the Times. When all of a sudden we'd I'd be I'd find myself on such a a row of of reading and turning pages, and then it felt like the style changed and they were talking directly to me and that. kind of made it more like telling incident showing. Where it's like, you know the usual thing of like here's the story and you're going to experience it vice. I'm telling you story and I'm going to make you realize it until you story. and. That really stuck out of the sore thumb to me this on this on this particular read. Yeah, I think. Because I've only read one or two books from Straub, I'm not as familiar with his process with how he writes his style overly because I feel like you have to read. Any books from an author to really get a sense of who they are as a writer and Stephen. King has always been so open about that, and because I'm doing this podcast going through everything chronologically, you can see those changes happening whereas maybe if you were reading and real time, they didn't seem to happen as rapidly because only a crazy person like myself would take this on and want to read all sixty seventy. I. Don't Know Eighty Bucks. In like. Three. Year, time period. I mean, it's quite a. Herculean task. I can't believe you're already in the two thousands on on your your readings because there's a lot to go through. It felt so good to hit to account action. And I think this is also turning point for for King in his life to you because this is I believe the second book that he wrote after the accident I believe. So because I think dream catcher was the one immediately after the accident, it seems like every time he has some sort of, Rehab. Stint or an accident..
