What Did Robert Hanssen Get Out of Being An Evil Russian Spy?
"We are talking to Lee's wheel. You probably know her. Remember her from Fox News and many other prominent places talking about many things kind of like this, but nothing can top this. She has a brand new book out called a spy in plain sight. The inside story of the FBI and Robert Hansen, America's most damaging Russian spy. It really is nightmarish. And I always say, Lee's that, you know, apart from my faith in God, I don't know how to process this. I think you would just be frightened at how evil the world is, how dark it is. I have to ask you the most basic question. What do you suppose that Robert Hansen got out of this? In other words, it's kind of a funny thing. I always feel that these traders sell themselves extraordinarily cheaply, you know, that China has billions of dollars to spend. And if there's anybody out there willing to kind of give them a leg up here or there, what was Russia giving this man? And again, we want to be clear. This wasn't Russia. This was the Soviet Union, as wicked as it gets. The evil empire, what were they giving him to make him feel that it was worth his doing this because he could have made a decent job doing the right thing. What were they giving him? Right, exactly. Cash. I mean, they were giving him bundles of $30,000, $10,000, $50,000. At one point he asked for diamonds, they gave him diamonds. And he had a cash flow problem, right? Because you can't put more than $10,000 in cash into a bank without alerting all sorts of things. So he would just honestly put it in a drawer. He put it under the bed. And in fact, Eric, one time when he had the cash in the drawer, Bonnie, his wife, saw the money in the drawer. It was like a sock drawer or something, you know, basic drawer like that. She pulled out the money, sees all this cash. She confronts him. This was early on in his spine, confronts him. She thinks it's money for a mistress because he's got he's done that before. Say that again, money from what? We're a mistress from mister. Oh, because he had cheated on his wife. Right. So she thinks that she confronts him. He says, oh, no, no, Bonnie. I'm not cheating on you. This is just money that I got from the Russians for spying. That was better or something. But he did say that to him. Yes, no, he admitted it to her. And then they, but here Eric, here's a twist. It go to their priests. That's what body his wife wants to do. They go to the priest, the priest basically says, oh, that was bad. Don't do that again. It's fine, that is. And you can be absolved from it if you just give them money that you've already made to the church. Which Hanson does, and he doesn't spy for a little bit, and then he starts up again. But the idea that a priest would say that, that basically, hey, you know, don't do that again, that's bad, but you know, it's all okay if you give the money to the church. And that, of course, you know, Bonnie was okay with

"Wasn't planning to get in the studio and I didn't even have any ideas for songs for the next record and suddenly that you've dawned on me that that was the song right there.

You mentioned earlier your admiration for the richness in tone that all of these other voices around you were sort of gaining and gathering over time. And I know in your early 20s, there were things that you did, you were in a little bit of a hurry to sort of make your own voice sound more weathered and lived in than it did at the age of 21, 22, 23. And I wonder, what is your relationship with your voice at this point in your performing life? What a great question. You're writing saying that I was frustrated with the way that I sounded early on. I never expected to be singing professionally or just did it as a hobby and I always wanted to sound like the most seasoned blues woman that I'd ever heard and like my idols that had lived long and hard life and a lot of the blues man who really just sounded as worn as they were. And I drank and smoked and hung out and did everything I could to try to beat my voice in the submission of my 20s until about 27 I would like I was on the road maybe ten months of the year and I think I made 6 albums and 7 years. I can't even imagine the pace that I was going at and yet finally by the time I was 29 or 30 I could actually thought I could sound almost like what I wanted to when I was singing and by the time I was 40 it was really an instrument that I could feel comfortable was really reflecting the age that I was at and experience that I'd had and the soul that I wanted to convey. And I think getting older in these last decades has been interesting to gain notes on the bottom of my range. I mean, I used to have to sing dimming of the day in a certain key that would make certain notes too high for me, but then I didn't order to be able to get that low note. And now I can really nail the bottom and some of the higher notes are harder to hit. But I think I've got more colors to play with when I'm singing. Are there performances on this new album that you can point to that you feel like reflect that deepening in your voice and textures that are there? Yeah. There's a torch song on there called blame.

"My older brother brought a record of his you know how you idolize your siblings sometimes when they're older and he was dating someone from Bennington college and we came back to Christmas vacation and he brought the birds and Freddie Hubbard and John Lee Hooker and later Jimi Hendrix, but he brought mos Alison's record. That's where I first heard it. I was like 16 and I just couldn't wait to be a beatnik and go to New York and hang out with guys with turtlenecks and berets and goatees. And just like Moses, the coolest blues guy I've ever heard in my life. Credible. So the 80s, your career, or Warner's career, wasn't going so well. Let me put it that way. And then you had this incredible tear when you went to capital. And they signed you for some small deal for a 150,000 or something. Not even that 125, I think. All we needed was the budget that was the budget we were going to make the record with. Well, that was the best $125,000 capital records ever spent. Well, what did they know? I mean, they knew that if we were going to make a really simple record that probably doesn't cut. You know, I just make records live, mostly it shouldn't cost that much to make. I don't do big productions or anything. And Joe Smith signed me to warners in 71 and he signed me to capital in 88, so that was part of it. But to have a new label, some of which are people that some of the people came over from warners with Joe, but they had something to prove. They knew that I had was really changing my life and wanted to make a really great record and my pairing with Don was was real kismet. It was great. What else changed do you think that made it suddenly possible for people to hear you in a different way? Well, number one, I think it was a switch and label and have a very enthusiastic team that had something to prove. VH1 was just starting and I would have never been played on MTV because I was 40 years old. So, and not a babe. So VH1 needed some new artists to showcase their new adult channel. I can't call it an adult channel. What can you call it? I don't know what it could call it. It's just not the kids channel. I think the fact that I was I got sober in 87 and was much healthier and happier and had written some songs and, you know, had a particularly good batch of tunes and a great partner in Don was..

"Apple podcasts, Spotify, or wherever you get your podcasts. We're back with the rest of Bruce's conversation with Bonnie ray. I do want to talk about some of the songwriters you've worked with and just your first encounters. And I have to start with John prine. Can you tell me about meeting him or encountering his songs for the first time? Yeah. I heard his first album on Atlantic, his debut record, and I was just absolutely floored, and I don't know when and the timeline, but I was playing the gaslight and he was playing the bitter end and we ended up meeting in New York City in the village. And soon after we both played the Philadelphia folk festival together. And we just forged a friendship right away that was absolutely immediate. He was a fan of mine. I was a fan of his. It was angel the first song you did of his? Yes. I knew of the first time I heard that song on his album that I'd be cutting that song. And I just astonished that someone of his age could crawl inside that woman who in that longtime marriage and just so beautifully and succinctly, I mean, it's so much has been written, especially since he passed, but I mean, the masterpiece of economy of that song and how every line is just laden with meaning. And you don't need to go in, it doesn't have to be a long story. It's just immediately there, and I sing that song for all the women when I was a young woman for all the women that are stuck in marriages and can't leave if they wanted to try a different kind of life or get a job or have someone to talk to, you know, just not I remember seeing the film bridges of Madison county and thinking that so perfectly describe what angel from Montgomery was about without giving it away that moment when she makes a decision to not follow her bliss. So I sing this song for my mom's generation..

"That's people don't even blink now, but back then they wanted you to be able to promote a record. And when the record business took off with rumors and thriller and Miami Vice soundtrack, these were billion selling records and those of us that were more moderate sellers just got pushed a little bit to the side and I'd rather sign somebody else that could bring in a more bang for their buck. They were also absorbed by big corporations, you know, Warner electorate Atlantic consolidated, Warner communications took over. There was a different set of priorities in the 80s. So, you know, they dropped T bone Burnett and Dan Morrison and Arlo Guthrie and me and, you know, we weren't bringing in the big bucks. So the 80s weren't real friendly to my kind of music. It wasn't a great political decade. There was this war in Central America. It was a lurch to the right, politically, and the consolidation of the record business. And it wasn't until the end of the decade that the college radio and album oriented rock and VH1 came along, and Tracy Chapman had a number one record. The Edie brickell, Robert Cray, the fabulous thunderbirds, my kind of music was having hit a hit play, so it was a good time for me to come back into the fore, but I never expected to have that huge success. I don't think anybody did. But you were back playing solo shows, is that right? You didn't have a band at that point? I played with my guitar player backed up on bass and sang harmony and we would do that in the months when we weren't with the band in the summer. And prince approached me a couple of years after I'd been dropped because I had a record ready to come out and a tour with Stevie Ray Vaughan. I had to cancel it. And he said, you know, you were treated badly..

"As a blues fan, the classic blues singers were just all fantastic and so different, but I loved that sippy wrote. Songs from kind of as a young feminist in my early 20s. You know, in that late teens, to hear, you can make me do what you want to do, but you got to know how, you know? It was just so saucy and women be wise, keep your mouth shut, don't advertise your man, you know, all the feminists were going, you know, how could you say that sisters would never steal each other's man? I said, what? What world are you living in? You know? If you talk about your baby, you tell me he's so fine, don't be surprised if I come up and check them out sometime. So sippy, I had no idea that she was still alive and so to actually record her songs because I loved her music above all the classic blues singers and find out that she was alive and become friends with her at the Ann Arbor blues and jazz festival and go on and tour together for 15 years. It was just an incredible gift. So, you know, something that I had an intention, it was musically driven, ended up being a benefit, culturally for me and for her just to expose her to a wider, wider audience and just that is a great joy for me to take people that are underappreciated. I mean, calypso music is one of my other favorites. And clips arose is a huge star in that world. And Van Dyck parks is the one that turned me on to that song. So on the record I was working with him in a little George and, you know, we did that song. What's she going to do? I can't repeat it here, but it's a little bit of some double entendre lyrics as an often is in the blues and calypso music. What was sippy Wallace like? Well, she like as a person. She had an incredibly great laugh, which she loved to laugh, left a kid around, but she was very religious, and, you know, I was meeting her 60s or late 60s, she had recovered from a stroke, and she was, you know, had been in a wheelchair for a while that was walking slowly. And she was only going to do gospel music after she stopped, you know, the whole blues industry went downhill when there was the depression, and the Second World War, they needed the vinyl for other things. And the black music industry was the one that took the hit, so she really was settled on this plane and church. And she played organ and piano in the church and led the choir..

"Tomboy and I had older brother and I would do this particular position with my hand, which isolates your middle finger and that's the finger that seemed really natural to me. To put the slide on. And in fact, you hold, I won't make that figure, but you hold the bottleneck on in the position that's actually the position I'm talking about. Well, we've now discovered the secret of your great slide work. Flipping the bird to your brother. Which I cased on the David Frost afternoon show, my first show ever on TV, my bass player, freebo and I like in 72 or something like that. And Robert Klein was the guest host, and I had opened for him at a university show and he played harmonica as everybody knows he had a great bit about I can't stop my leg and a spoof on being a blues guy. And he asked me about it and I remember being smart alecky and I was holding my finger like that the whole time and David Frost show and then I went home and told asked my friends if they saw it and they went, oh yeah, I can't believe you did that. I used yeah you surprised yourself by getting a record deal. And then you had these critically lauded albums through the 70s. Tell me what was that time like for you? I was having a blast. I mean, I built my following from opening for my heroes and folk clubs to be an on festivals and being on the opening act of 3 o'clock and the next thing I was back eventually being asked to headline a couple of nights and then I drew poorly and then I drew better and then I would open for Cat Stevens or James Taylor and the benefit of having someone manage and book me that was already had acts that he could just call up and I was cheap..

"We're back with more from Bonnie raitt and Bruce had them. So was there one particular song that you listened to or you played in the guitar that sort of said to you? I want this to be my life. You know, I was plaintively playing all those Joan Baez songs all my trials. Everything on her first couple of albums, Odetta songs, and then I just felt hard for Bob Dylan. I taught myself to play all those in my room and sang so earnestly with absolutely no desire or need to play for other people. I mean, I live the songs around the campfire at camp as an assistant counselor. I'd help put on the talent shows on Saturday nights with kids doing musicals, but playing music for me was just a solitary, wonderful, emotional outlet. And I just love that sound that the guitar makes when it's in your lap and through the sound hole and singing and playing is just so such a release and you go so deep. So I can't really say there was one tune that made me want to go do it for a living, but one of the best inspirations was I took a semester off from college and my folks said, okay, you're on your own. We're not supporting if you take a semester off, so I got to get a job, and I worked for the American Friends service committee as a transcriptionist in Philadelphia. And I went to a club and I saw some young folk singer, a woman opening for the main act, at a little tiny club called the second fret. And I said, you know what? I could be doing this instead of typing, you know? I like the AFS C but come on. How much is she getting paid? So I found out I could just make pin money and support myself and that's how my career took off. It wasn't really a desire to become a musical powerhouse or have a career in music. I was always going to be a social activist and it kind of fell into my lap just because I happened to have the inspiration of seeing this girl that I said, well, if she can do that, I'm at least that good, you know? And did you make as much money as you would have? There's a translator? Oh, I think I've done a little bit better than that. I've been a better social activist as well. I had more reach..

"Yeah. And you've helped a lot of songwriters careers by looking for these things. That's a treasure for me because I happen to love the songwriters original demos of the songs they give me. I have a whole collection of them. But some of them wouldn't have the kind of a voice that would get a record deal. So I feel like I have an obligation to be able to make these beautiful pieces of music sing and expose to a broader audience that may not only opening doors for them in their career, but I mean, I can't imagine being such a talented songwriter and have nobody here your tune, so. You know, I come from the Judy Collins Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra's school of interpreting other people's material and making it my own. But you also write. Yeah. You're reminding me because I grew up in southern Ontario and surely I cart used to. I was too young, but my sister used to go see her. So she was an example of someone whose career you really made. Yeah, she had a pretty good, I think she had a pretty good following in Canada, and she still making wonderful records. But yeah, that song that she wrote kind of changed my life. But you don't sing it correctly because it's really something to talk about. Oh, there you go. Canadians don't understand your version at all. And she didn't sing like that on the demo either, so there you go. No, that would be a very limited audience if she's saying like that. Yeah. Just Canadians. And there's not that many of us. I have a Canadian in my band now. He's from Winnipeg originally, but he lives in Nova Scotia, Glenn patcha, and he is a secret weapon of this new album. He's just an incredibly soulful keyboard player, but a great singer as well. So I'm a big, big fan of Canadian musicians and comedians..

"Process is that? Yeah, I mean, I start calling songs down from ideas that I've saved over the years. There's certain songs on this record that have been resting and waiting to have their day in court. And I look and earnest all the time. I'm always listening to maybe 20 or 30 songwriters that I really love the work of, some of whom are well known and others are more obscure and I love the challenge of unearthing some unbelievably obscure jewel off of somebody's early records. So it's a song hunt that unearths R&B chestnuts, current singer songwriters, old catalog from other artists, lots of publishing submissions and some of my own. So, you know, the process starts a couple of years before we actually get in the studio. And then like the person that works on the term paper right before it's due, that's when I write my songs is right when we go ready to go on the studio. I go, oh, I better finish this because I have really high standards and I don't make the cut often. What do you look for in a song? Is it changed over the years? I'd like to say that it has changed, but not really. The main thing that is on my mind is not repeating myself. So finding something new to say it at 21 albums is musically and lyrically very challenging. So I've covered every aspect of broken love, longing for love, I'm excited to be in love. You know, all of that issue. And then there's some societal kind of songs and there's just chestnuts from the blues and reggae and world music Pantheon of great artists that I love. So I just kind of want to make it fresh for myself and for my fans and stretch a little bit and do some fields on the record that are going to add to my show when I go out on the road..

China Sanctions Wilbur Ross and Others, Responding to Hong Kong Warnings
"Fresh sanctions on a handful of US individuals. It's retaliation for sanctions the bite and administration imposed on Chinese officials last week. Over Beijing's crackdown on democracy in Hong Kong. Its latest attack comes just days before a visit to China by Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Sherman and US China ties are already tense, though, as NPR's John Ruit reports there is no sign China's sanctions will derail the visit. Sanctions are the first imposed by China under a new law passed in June, which facilitates retaliation for foreign sanctions. Among those it hits a former Commerce secretary Wilbur Ross, and the China director at Human Rights Watch Sophie Richardson. For years, Beijing's responded to US sanctions and tariffs with tit for tat measures in Beijing's calculation, it had to respond to the US Bonnie Lynn, a senior fellow at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, says doing so before Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Sherman's trip makes sense would disappear better if it happened a couple days after Deputy Secretary Sherman's trip that she says might risk being interpreted as a signal that the meeting didn't go well. And Sherman will be the most senior U. S official to travel to China since President Biden took office. Relations are at their worst in decades. But there's speculation that the trip could start to lay the groundwork for a meeting sometime this year between Biden and Chinese leader Xi Jinping. There is a desire to be able to showcase that the two world leaders can work together and part of that is being able to meet and discuss issues they agree on as well as those where they have differences, and I really hope As we see more of these incidents is on either side that they won't derail progress towards the usual meeting because both sides, she says, have significant incentives for Biden and she to meet sooner rather than later.

A Tip for Healthy Eating: Eat Enough Food
"Going to dive into the basics. On what how the eating is. And i'm gonna share three tips on how you can incorporate healthy eating into your life now. These are probably not the sexiest tips. That you were hoping to hear. Hey i am a registered dietitian. I did go to school for this. And these are in my professional opinion. The most important things you need to look at first. When you're looking at healthy eating first and foremost eat enough and even if you're listening to this and you think maybe it doesn't apply to you. Maybe you don't identify as a restrictor or someone who doesn't eat enough. I really encourage you to stick around and listen to this because a lot of my clients that i've worked with felt the same exact way they said you know. Bonnie i don't have an under eating problem. I have an out of control with food problem but a lot of this stemmed from not eating enough food. And especially if you're someone who has kind of like haphazard behaviors around food maybe restrict for awhile. And then you're out of control and you kind of repeat this cycle. This episode is absolutely for you. There's a couple of reasons why eating enough is important. And first and foremost is because when we don't eat enough we're not able to reap all of the nutritional benefits from food because the small amount of food that you're bringing in is used for other more important functions and your body like keeping you alive right and our bodies are actually pretty amazing when we take a step back and look at them and how they do so much for us to keep us as healthy and alive and well as they possibly can. So we've gotta eat enough

Defining and Understanding Body Image With Mental Health Counselor Bri Campos
"Can we talk a little bit about body image and body grief and why we are where we are totally I think that body image is like one of those topics where people are like. I know what it is like nothing how to explain. Like i know it. When i see it but i'm not sure if i could write a dissertation on it i could. I could easily write. And so the the definition that i use for body image is that body image. Not just the way that we perceive our bodies. But it's also the way that we feel about our bodies it's the thoughts and beliefs that we have about the way that we feel about our bodies in its behaviors connected to the thoughts and beliefs about our buddy. So let me let me break that down for you in a really accessible way. So i had recently posted. I had an opportunity to partner with atlanta the metro on a campaign. They were doing lead with your legs and I like the photos that came back. I was like oh. I don't know if i've ever seen my body in that position in that angle in i.

So i didn't like the way that i perceived my body that i saw it but i did not feel badly as person because they didn't like those photos there was a neutrality to it was like like the photos but i don't feel like i'm a bad person. There was new story attached to it. I didn't also feel like. Oh my gosh. Because i don't look at these photos i feel shame because i think i'm going to experience less love or belonging because i don't look attractive in these photos which might have been a story that i played a long time ago so i think that especially die. Culture tries to sell the idea that like bonnie love and body satisfaction. And you're gonna love the way that you look. That's that's only one part of body. Image nets body satisfaction.

Learning to Love Yourself and Heal Trauma with Margaret Paul
"In your perspective would you say that self love is a spiritual process a spiritual journey. What what i would say. Is that since we don't have actual many actual role models in our society. In order to know what's loving to ourselves. We have to be able to access a higher source of information of truth of guidance and this became apparent as we were creating the inner bonnie roses that we we needed a way to access that information because otherwise i mean people say i don't know how to love myself and i said i don't know i love myself. How do i figure that out. So now i learned how will denied. I learned how to access that higher source and i teach people how to do that all the time. It's not as hard as people think and then we can get that role modeling that guides for what's actually emotionally loving to ourselves as well as physically and financially and all those other levels.

When i was a bedside nurse actually was working in an organization and As was kind of typical for the time we had bins on the counter that had medications in them. Nowadays we would never think of that. We would put them in a locked storage device or we had bins next to each other. There was kind of normal saline and heparin and potassium and other things. That just happen to be in these bins on the counter. A remember looking at them and actually seeing that assailing flush was right next to the end of tasks him and they both were the same size and they had the same color plastic tops and at the time even be in kind of a pop of a nurse that struck me as being a really bad thing right. An accident or disaster wage right. I know shauna and the crazy thing is that when i talked to the manager about it they said okay. Great thanks for finding this. We're gonna put it on next month safety committee meeting and it just made me scratch my head thinking why can a nurse at the bedside not effect change fast enough that can prevent something really bad from happening.
