"Daddy. That's his only hope for this man and his poor beleaguered business is only hope is Joe Biden if he gets in there and let him open up again that trump. What he did, he sent secret service agents. Right to the blind pig and they stood in front of that bar and made sure this man did not open his business. So for his family. His business must re open. And I can't tap into the inheritance I got the. Whole hands or hundreds of millions of dollars can tap into that because I've saved that for all the things I'm investing in in all the Democrat causes that I contribute to. Only home for the blind pig yeah. Is If Joe Biden's elected but we can you just kind of glossed over what? What part the that. His family survive I could've sworn. You're talking about millions in inheritance. Yeah. Many many millions of guys in Angel investor but you don't want to mix that with the with the bar money. WanNa he made a heartfelt. No is only survival. Chance is only chance to survive to live to thrive to be able to feed his family. is if Joe Biden's elected? Well that and he does have an inheritance of millions and billions of dollars. Like it's inconsequential. So what's going to happen is A overstep governor Whitmer what are they want what I guess? So I yeah is that what will happen will biden mandate that all businesses now open because honestly What is it? They want I wonder you brought up an interesting point a few minutes ago. offaire think yeah. Okay. So what what do you want him to do? That trump has whistled this'll badly you should write have pointed out. This is how our conversation off the air started. You pointed out a stupid banner on CNN that said a report came out that basically hundred thousand extra debts are because of how trump handled the? One hundred thirty thousand, two, hundred, and ten thousand. So literally, they're attributing almost every death to Donald Trump's actions and my my question to you as well. So what they want. They want a dictator, you want trump to be the dictators should have just mandated all businesses close stay closed, but then he's destroyed the economy. So what about that part is being called rightfully. So at this point, he had done that a dictator just on what do they want I don't know. All Right Brad Meltzer tells us about his latest books next.

Voice. My friend. Go to hear you. How are things? nothing going on in the world how about you? Know what it's so hard to talk find things to talk about. I've you know what's crazy is we plan these books. Two years in advance. and. Here, we are talking about you know tearing down a statue of Abraham Lincoln and and we've got a book on Ben Franklin and the founders and the report comes out last week that says, millennials don't know the basic facts about the Holocaust and we have a book on Anne Frank and I'm like. Sometimes the universe produces the heroes you need it's not the heroes you want, but it's heroes you need yeah it's it's It's amazing. I really have found divine providence in some of the stuff that we've done just put out the book arguing with Socialists and then this summer hit is like, wow it. Exactly. What you need Yeah Holy Cow. So, Brad tell me about tell me about the books This is part of your your riddle and the Secret Museum series. That that's on PBS I wanted to carry that so badly on the blaze, but I'm not rich enough for Brad meltzer's. Listen we've done our shows. I and I love you. You know as you know I started writing these kids books because I wanted to get my kids better heroes to look up to and give them heroes who could teach them kindness and compassion and character, and again, look at the World Anti Semitism is that it's forty year high our kids need hope right now and the best way to teach that is with Anne Frank the little girl who? Hides from the Nazis in an attic and still believes the people are good at heart and I want my kids to know that even in the darkest places, you can still find light. That's what hope is going. Right it's like a fire that Burns within you and when you put it on nothing puts it out and I need my daughter to have that lesson I need. My son's have that lesson. So I am frank is that illustrated kids book? Teach hope for our kids right now and I am Benjamin Franklin. You Benjamin, Franklin we all know the stories of him with electricity great experiments but. To me, his greatest experiment is experiment that he does on himself. He actually has his whole life trying to improve himself even has rules you and I've talked about him privately like him and George Washington have rules to live by his rules are one be frugal. Don't spend money. You don't have to tell the truth three work hard and four don't speak badly about other people look at the world right now where they're tearing down the founding fathers, you know Oh this you know. Ben. Franklin owned slaves and I'm like, yes but he also at the end of his life. With the president of an organization that stood against slavery. So have you say he's bad or is he good or is he just complicated like all of us and? Need that lesson that rather than pointing fingers at everyone else Ben Franklin new. If you WANNA change the world, you start with yourself and it moves out from their rippling outward he was phenomenal. Can you think of anyone alive today I? Mean I think one of the most impressive people live today that would fit in the founding era would be maybe Lon Musk. Do. You know we and he. Of ideas one hundred percent. Ben. Franklin I mean you know I. It was one of the hardest books to write because it's a kids book. Obviously, we're trying to entertain educate your kids and give them values but I'm like, do I talk about electricity? Do I talk about his inventions? Do I talk about the science he does do I talk about the greatest experiment the American. Experiment he literally edits the Declaration of Independence and George Wa, I mean George Washington Thomas Jefferson writes the first. Draft gives it to Ben Franklin and and we showed this in the book Ben Franklin is like This part you have here, we hold these truths to be sacred and undeniable. What if we changed at this? We hold these truths to be self evident that all men are created equal. That's Benjamin Franklin's edit and I need our kids to see that that is how you teach your kids to be great American I have an eighteen, thirty six or is it Be Eighteen Twenty six. Version of the Declaration of independence first draft. Have you ever seen it? Have you ever seen that when I get when we were together last time I almost jumped the desk for the key That I haven't seen it I have been to the National Archives in their secret private room where I saw their copy So you've seen the first draft. Have you ever read it in the first draft? Yes. I could no I couldn't read I mean I've read online that translations of it and you can see the Change in their right and the in the third page I urge you to go back and read the third page, the longest usurpation or the longest problem You know they had with the King was his treatment of African Americans and Africans as slaves, and it is a whole paragraph on it and it's Thomas Jefferson writes at his his handwriting changes capitalizes Like men when he's calling the and then he puts these men up for auction on the auction block. I mean, it's phenomenal and completely changes I gotta go back go back and think about and Franklin is. You know when I get my edits back for my editor in Griping about him like Ben Franklin's editing Thomas Jefferson at the height of no hours. I can't complain about that. And the thing about the thing about Franklin just to go back to your is coming is he does his whole life. One of the great stories in my kids reacted to is Franklin's a little boy and when Benjamin Franklin a little boy used to love swimming and he realizes if you have bigger hands and bigger fee can move faster in the water paddle faster. So. He makes these homemade by kind of oven this big myth and they put some on his feet to I- flippers. Hey, just flying through the water. This is as a little kid and my youngest who's very creative and likes to color and play Legos like I need you to see what you can do when you unleash creativity. That's what Ben Franklin gives us. There was there a story about him getting in trouble because he was always in trouble I think as a kid. And he was like. Damning up a river or something he was taking. Rocks and damming the river, and that's when finally his his parents I believe Said you're going to work you're going to work and sent him to a pen to work as a kid. The thing that he also by a river is he runs his he runs his kite by the river and there's a kite again, you know what he does later in life, the little boy runs the kite on the river. When it goes in the air, he jumps in the river ties it around his ways to test the theory that it will pull him across the lake, which does, and as you said soon, after that, the parents were like this is what a blacksmith is get to work. The work but you know.

"Welcome to kiss myths and Mystery Syam, your host Kit crump today, the Bohemian Grove and a little bit about secret societies. Perhaps, you belong to a club some time in your life maybe the girl Scouts or cub scouts I was a cub scout many clubs have rules and regulations that go no further than the halls were the members gather like the elks however organizations like the PTA Parent Teacher Association can affect schools, school districts therefore students the reach and impact of. These organizations are limited and generally they're intent is not secret records of meetings of the scouts, elks in the PTA and many other clubs are available to the public. But there are many secret societies out there Yale's skull and bones founded in eighteen thirty two and has had both bushes Teddy Roosevelt and his cousin Franklin as members but a complete list of members is difficult to acquire and the intent of the club impossible to know Dan there is the barbarian aluminum. An lighten era secret society founded may first seventeen seventy, six. The BILDERBERG group is so secret that is considered by many to be a shadow world most secret societies, clubs and organizations so far flung with headquarters in different cities around the world. But the Bohemian Grove is located on two thousand, seven hundred privately owned acres located in Monte Rio California and established eighteen seventy two security at the grove is year round ex-military hired to keep out the curious high end equipment including thermal night vision cameras, and motion detectors are used. As. Part of the sophisticated detection and alarm system, they have ceremonies with strange names like the yearly cremation of care ceremony. It was revealed by a California judge during a discrimination suit brought against that grow by the California Department of Fair Employment and housing over the club's refusal to hire women when the judge that issued decision in favor of the club's practice of not hiring women stated the club members urinated in the open and that hiring women would alter the members behavior odd ceremonies and members strange conduct aside members like those. Of Yale are rich and powerful pictures of President Reagan and Nixon indicate they were members. Also, the Grove is particularly famous for a Manhattan Project Planning Meeting this took place there in September of Nineteen, forty two, which subsequently led to the atomic bomb those attending this meeting include Ernest, Lawrence j Robert, Altman Heimer, the s one executive committee heads such as presidents of Harvard Yale and Princeton along with representatives of standard, oil general, electric as well as various military officials. All members at the time oppenheimer was not an s one member. Although Lawrence, an open heimer hosted the meetings grow members take particular pride in this of and often relate the story to new attendees. However, other behavior at this famous campground has led to numerous claims and even some parody in popular culture. One such documented example was former president Richard Nixon's comments on May Thirteenth Nineteen seventy-one recording the Bohemian Grove which I attended from time to time. It is the most Fag God damn thing you could ever imagine now that's a quote from Richard, Nixon was recorded may thirteen nine, hundred, seventy one. Author, Brad Meltzer hosted a program for the history channel. It was called history coded. He hosted a team of three and during one episode sent to to infiltrate the Hebron. Grove. With the disastrous result, they were all arrested.

"You wait right here. Back because. I love the fact that when we when we did those books if I miss up toward Washington. What's he gonNA do but I miss up Billie Jean. King She's coming to my house with a tennis racket. Right like Dan, not necessarily so we gave her the book is she was really sweet. She loved the series and we gave her the buck and I spent two hours. Hours on the phone with her or her correcting like Oh, by the way Brad in this scene. My sneakers were blue. They weren't wide at night. That's when I switched to these kinds of decent, and we got to this one part of the book. Never forget she said to me. You know this scene wasn't here was actually here and I said No. I'm sorry I said. But. I actually got that detail. You sure that's right because they got that detail from your autobiography and she said Yeah Yeah I know but I was so busy back then I never got the proof. My autobiography and I love our kids book. I am Billie Jean King is has now were validated own autobiography which. So usually. People. That's amazing. We We started off the chat talking about how Mark Twain's falsely attributed quote about how a history rhymes, but doesn't repeat and I'm so curious you know with all your wealth of knowledge of of history. If there's something that if there's a time that feels like it rings true to now where we can, we can pull lessons if there's something around your family dinner table that you guys are. are talking about you know a way to give historical context. People are going through right now. Yeah, you know and oddly Akeem from the from an adult. That was working on but I. Use it for my kids all the time I found this story and we started writing it two years ago, so we have no idea where the country's going to be right. We just pick the stories that we think are interesting. And found this story. We all know the story about Abraham. Lincoln being shot at Ford's theatre, but there was actually a story that I found about the original secret plot to kill him at the start of his presidency. And Abraham Lincoln to be sworn in as the sixteenth president had to take a train. From his home in Springfield Illinois to Washington DC and the only way to get there is you had to go through Baltimore Maryland at the time was a slave state, so there was a secret plot to actually kill him when he came through Baltimore. That was the plot is even come through Baltimore. We're GONNA. Kill him is never gonNA become president in the plot is fails, but what was interesting to me? Is We again. Tell the story of Abraham Lincoln at the end of his presidency. Right the the greatest president arguably wherever lived wins the civil war patient proclamation freeze end slavery like this is incredible. But what struck me was at the start of his presence Abraham. Lincoln is despised. They hate him. They hate him so much when he's running for the presidency that ten different southern states won't even put his name on the ballot because they hate him so much. They hate him so much that three days they give them three days into his presidency south. Carolina says that they're. They're gonNA pass. Resolutions is a seed from the union. Three days is how long they want him. He and Abraham. Lincoln is hated not on the ballot succeeding from the Union was all getting ready to go. They're trying to murder him. A secret society is trying to murder him on his way to be sworn in and Abraham. Lincoln, in that moment comes to and obviously. Doesn't spoil the book to say. He obviously escapes lives, but he gets sworn in. Raises Right hand at the Capitol, and you know what he says in his first inaugural address at a time when they hate him, and he knows half the country hates him and he knows we're bitterly divided, and whatever side you're on the other side of the countries are horrible, awful people. Is that sound familiar to you? right like that. He says in that moment it gets in front of everyone. And he says to everyone on his first inaugural address. We should not be enemies. We should be friends that we need to defer to the better angels of our nature. And that's the lesson I used my kids, and I use with my wife and I use myself as we have to today. Be better than what angers us. Be Better than what angers you be better than what angers you i. mean need that because right now it's so easy to kind of like point a finger and hate whatever whatever side you're on and at this is no good so I. Use Abraham Lincoln. I mean literally last night at the dinner table telling that story and I wrote that for adults from like my kids needed I needed. We all need it. Lead that or my goodness. It's hard to do, but it's so. Hard to do. I always tell people. If you're watching, let's pretend you. You know you're a democrat. You just watch CNN or your Republican. You just watch Fox News. If you are just watching one news source, you are non informed citizen. You just are not. You can't be an I encourage. People go on twitter facebook, whatever follow some people who aren't like you. It will make you crazy. You will want to murder. These people within one day I promise you. I do too right. We all do, but..

Book is the better book because it had that bias like made aware to before. I can publish it and get out there so that that's what I do with my daughters as opposed to my son, I wonder if some of that has to do with just not being other gender, you know or or the other sex. I think we're supposed to say now the other sex is that you know like I. My son's a tell me that all the time. Mom, Okay Mommy I'm okay because I think sometimes we. We have a comfort level with our own sex, so my daughter. I know she's got it. She's strong.

It's I mean for me the so interesting, my daughter. She's a little bag nails like she could. She could take on anything right. That's the amazing part. It wasn't it wasn't. It was clearly something within me and not even reacting tour. She was so young. I didn't know what she was going to be your how she was going to come out. But you gotta be aware your biases and I feel like when I do the books I. It's amazing to me. What my kids! I. Mean they pull things that are important to them? That are never was the thing that I thought was important, and I will always test I. Think my wife Jokes Kids, so I can focus group like I always test books train. See what they react to write I. Get these various groups but like. I for me. It's so vital to watch and see that they're going to react to something entirely differently than I. Did and you know what that's perfect. That's absolutely fine like we did sock Julia, my daughter's. Favorite parts is where soccer Julia. Thought was going to be the story where she sees the day in. It's Lewis and Clark expedition, and is the only one who doesn't panic and shows how blazer own trail, but when my daughter reacted to was that when software could have gone back her family, and could have been freed from the slavery she was in. She says I WANNA. Still go see. See the Pacific. Ocean I've never seen it before. She wants to see that Vista for the first time. This is beautiful picture in the book where you see the her standing on the edge of the ocean, and I remember her reacting to that in just that idea of like. Go and blaze your own trail that I was like Oh that that's better than when. When I plan for you, so you know to me, we all have these great plans for our kids.

"Brad Meltzer is a good friend of mine I don't know if we even need to introduce him but he is the author of a new book called the Lincoln conspiracy the secret plot any time that Brad Meltzer is on it is always a tour de force of history welcome Brad how are you I'm good my friend how you doing very good very good I I brought a couple of things in on Lincoln that I thought you might appreciate I know you're going to hear I knew you're gonna do right now well I give it give him somewhere in the room in the studio today for anybody who's playing our game you know Glenn studio there is a link in artifact behind me that if you guess what it is you with a copy of my new book but the this I brought with me is a piece of Abraham Lincoln's coat it is actually the caller that he was wearing that night that he was shot and finally killed you can see the rest of the jacket at Ford's theater but it's missing its collar and this is the missing piece that somebody caught off of him that night which is awful senior analyst I've been accustomed to this year the cops during a military museum out Maryland but yet the jacket obviously of course so it's all the different pieces make up the whole incredible yeah and it's it's weird Brad how they treated him even as he was dying but will we get into that maybe some other time because you're going to tell a story that most people don't know in the Lincoln conspiracy and it's one of my favorite Lincoln stories tell me yeah we we all know the story of John Wilkes booth and in Lincoln's presidency but this is the story of the first secret plot to kill Abraham Lincoln at the very start because in order to be sworn him as America's sixteenth president as you know Lincoln had to take a train from his home in Springfield Illinois Washington DC and the only way to get there was to go through Baltimore early and that the time was displayed eight so the plan was simple a secret society planned to ambush link and when he came through Baltimore and end his presidency before it even began and this is the story and it's all true all really happened this is the true story of this secret conspiracy that very few people even know existed so tell me the story because with the Lincoln was like the fight what is a fifty third vote vote of the Republican Party at their convention it was a what do you call it of the convention we've been thinking it was coming for the Democrats the kind where that you either don't have a nominee so you have to go in to vote over and over and over again until you get a consensus they opted nominee you're not you're you're the the the final nominee a brokered convention is like fifty second vote was for Abraham Lincoln and then and people didn't I mean they didn't know who he was when you did know who he was he looked on the he was described at the time is uncouth and and drug tests he wouldn't grounded why did that no politician ever been uglier you they were ruthless I and and as you said they had they they go and they didn't know we what we found campaign poster and someone analyst says vote for Abraham Lincoln they spelled his name wrong on his own poster that so when he gets the more he doesn't he doesn't even know how split the country is he he doesn't know how he did he is already and how close the country is to just full on civil war Brandon may give it you know it is an incredible time in America and and as he's making this ride I mean this is she is truly unique three days after his elected three days and how much time to get them South Carolina passes the resolution same where students from the union so eight the hate mail starts pouring in and out there starting they they have no idea how the culture is splintering that's why I wrote this book is that it this time in American politics where you see the culture split into you see that whatever side you're on you hate the other side you think the other side a complete horrible people does that sound familiar to you one right it's like exactly where we are right now and it's why exactly what a great leader does not situation is you know it's it's blinking tries with all his power not to divide it with United even in the midst of this plot to murder him and and one of my favorite scene you know there's a train in the middle of the night the train at the speeding train filled with passengers and we're looking for them in particular there's two business ma'am there's a woman and she had an invalid brother but none of them are who they say they are so the the businessman is actually Allan Pinkerton famous detective headed the Pinkerton detective agency the woman is hate worn shoes America's first female private eyes either so called brothers no brother and he's certainly not invalid that they were handling can they put a minute this guy they give him a secret code name there whisking away to make sure the secret society doesn't get him and you know I just ruined chapter one of billing conspiracy but that's okay for you or any like it's been unbelievable the union yeah it is it what what's so incredible is and then maybe you would know this did they make him an invalid because I know is they snuck him out of the theater the you'll have to excuse me your fresh on the research this is years ago my research so correct me when I'm wrong but they brought him into a theater and then snuck him out to the back and they told him you gotta take the hat off and hunch down and they put like a shawl over him and he had a hundred I'm does your memory all okay well that's the thing if you're not you six four no one had even seen if you live in America at that time you didn't you didn't know anyone six four it's like trying to hide games today and and so yeah rap on him over it one of my favorite scenes in the in the whole book is one eight Callum let them they're coming to kill you we gotta get you outta here and basically then this hotel room in the middle of the night is exhausted making them look in Philadelphia you're gonna I want to tell us or just for you because you're going to love this part of it is they tell him you have an event in Philadelphia tomorrow we gotta make you skip the event when get you to the C. earlier and Lincoln says I'm not missing the event in Philadelphia no like what's in Philadelphia and the reason I think it won't miss the event in Philadelphia is because the next day in Philadelphia they are honoring the birthday of one of Lincoln's most favorite heroes a man named George Washington and No Way is George Washington I know is one of your heroes ofcourse one of mine they talk about a land like no ways Lincoln missing honoring George Washington and we found the actual speech the linking gives you goes to Philly the next day even I'll be interesting his life and he gives a speech in the speeches at independence hall he's talking about the beauty of the declaration giving everyone an equal chance and Lincoln said if we can't leave the country without that principle any pauses and he says I was about to say I would rather be assassinated on this spot then surrender and what I love is that in that moment Abraham Lincoln absolutely knows there's a plot to kill him when he says a fascinate me on the spot and it's right after that as you step we pick the right up is they would come right out of there we won't rona how it how they sneak them out but that's when they make him out of there and get to save his life I did not know that part of the story that is a great part of the story yeah I know that I was proud of that when I walked in and out walked along with like oh my gosh it's all coming together do you include anything on Charles stone Charles Palmer a stone yeah Charles stone is in the book and I'm trying to remember what we put on there he's an army officer and if the inspector I think back to general Washington DC and he has some testimony at the time because what happens is that they're trying to find this plot is you know and I love that I'm talking you would know the answer but they have a secret committee it's called the committee of five minutes you know to try and find out what this point is and the real name that they get to it the treatment committee they want to know who it is and one of the people that they bring you know Charles stone is there but they they they bring in there's a guy named Brianna Perrin Beatty and he is the leader of the secret society that's part in killing him and I inform my favorite line in the book that they will they finally have a proud parent exactly where they want under oath and he looks up at these congressmen and they say to him you know Hey stern is a barber of all things it is a barber in a Baltimore fancy hotel you go into the basement of this hotel we wish for the right password you wish for the right code words and they he will eventually tell you the secret pocket caliber handling and these are the men that they're trying to catch and they lie under oath to Congress I made like almost no different than today Congress has them right there but just doesn't ask the right questions doesn't have to be does anyone everyone kind of turning their head and they all walk out and it and Congress completely ineffectual to catching anybody it takes balance banker can and the Packers and detectives to save the day do you know the the rest of the story with Charles power a stone the reason why I ask is because he played a role in the you know the first assassination helping Lincoln during this first assassination but he he later plays a very important role in American history do you do you know that I know I know the first one no he's going to testify that it's real I don't know the end the end of the story what's that what happened at the end so so he goes to the fight in the civil war he is a guy who does not hate the south he's more like Lincoln he doesn't hate the south he just wants the civil war to end so he's fighting on the northern side but he's not he refused he refuses to engage in the you know I hate him I hate him I hate him and this this is a lot of the people in the north on north off

"More blue powder blue? The man had been surprised by employees at his firm who had organized a joy ride in a salt Rafael. Be Jet for him as a treat. Why would you do that? Why would you do this without clearing it with someone that they want to do? I your crazy why would you not do I would do it? But what do you usually like? Well what are we doing today surprise with the company? I'm already out red flag. That's right and then they're like. Where are we going to do? An airbase for you're going to get in a fighter jet now I personally would say yes. I would say yes. This is a ride with the blue angels. Now I want way I WANNA do. I actually go so I enter. Take the USO around the world. And they used to. We've been to Qatar in all these places in Kuwait and they used to take all the authors up in fighter jets and so many authors. Because I'll tell you that when I went the first time. The two teams came before us with the Dallas Cowboy cheerleaders then the enemy fighters and then the literacy authors at my my friend was I can use tape the audible sigh when you walk in the room so that we know that it's you but they the authors throwing up so much on the fighter jets that they stop bringing us on our you. I would yak all over the place. There's no way of you that well Brad. Have you seen Dan? Have you seen those videos? Okay in Atlanta Georgia. There's this gigantic slingshot that like. It's almost like my daughter. My daughter went on. That show went on it stop. She went on. She said it was the scariest thing she ever went. There are videos okay. There are so many videos from go pros of people passing out while they're in the air so like their lie because they're afraid and the because they're just crazy it's crazy 'cause you shooting you into the ocean no straight up like a slingshot slingshot and chew over the park and people just lose it so like where do you land big burly. It just goes back okay. I thought you stay attached to the attached. But you're on this thing and they just pull it back and you fling a Bungee cord but like fleeing straight out and dudes who is going to be easy and then they pass out. They wake up when they're there and they're still going and they pass out again. It's because they're pulling any G.'s. You have to see the video if you did do that you would not say you know what I need to hit the ejector button right. Because that's not thinking about what the here's the thing. There is really only one person one sixty four year old man who something like this is good for. And that's Tom Chris. Yeah crush it. He's the only guy that could that could eject from a fighter jet going at like what is it. Twenty two thousand five hundred square feet crazy that he'd like climbed on the outside of that plane for his lesson. I saw you see him when he when he has James Corden by the way I need to add this part. My nephew who's really young is four years old. He actually calls James Harden James Corden and and we do not correct him anything so I need to tell the story and make it the way you want James Corden. When Tom Cruise jumped out of the plane with him. You can see what real fear looks like and you see Tom. Cruise has no fee. It will because he's dead inside. Scientology is basically taking the soul out of him. The most recent mission impossible the scenes and stuff they do in that are insane climbs on the outside of that plane. No that's the. Where did he ask the most reason one is the motorcycle and then also the only job? Yes he's you can see the shots in there where he smashes ankle into the wall and then though I took them they created new technology to do the follow shot of him walking out the back of his plan. They created a new mass because they wanted to be able to see his face that everybody knows him. Chris Evans really did this all my Christmas. Please Superman I can't remember.

"Meltzer is like binging a show on Netflix. And a really good show on Netflix. Because at the end of the episode there is always something compelling that says I gotTA WATCH THIS NEXT ONE. That is the end of every meltzer chapter is like. Oh my God I cannot stop you the worst thing to read at night because it's the best thing to read at night and then it's the worst thing because like I'm just GonNa read a chapter before I go to bed and the next thing you know well chapters hundred pages. Because I can't stop because I literally cannot go to sleep not knowing what's happening next but were stuck in our houses. We have whole weekends where we're sitting there going. What do I do? You've watched all the crap you WANNA watch. I'm saying right now. Go get the Lincoln Conspiracy. You will thank us for then you'll dive back in if you haven't been through all along Mothers and Fathers Day coming so that alone you can get to read it and then give it away it is. It is a Meltzer book. You do secret societies better than anybody because this society is the craziest secret society because it's led by a civil war barbour which has the best mustache court. And then he does. He's like in this fancy hotel. You go in the basement of the hotel. They have secret code words. You'll see and you give the right co- words this Barbie Hotel you about his secret plot to kill Abraham Lincoln. And you're just like you can't wait to watch this racist stupid more on be taken down and it's just amazing to watch it all fall apart. I think you should forever because of the amount of research you do for every book the and it's amazing because we've seen we've been with you as you've sort of gone through the process of research. Your research is so extensive. You could probably do a documentary about this Barbara. Like do a whole like hour. Long documentary about this dude and the society and what it is because you do so much and it's amazing how you all this research and then it comes out in just like the coat that the guys wearing you know what I mean. The thing the thing that's really fun. Listen it's also a time. Where America's deeply divided. We hate each other half. The country thinks the other half is a bunch of total utter morons and we despised like. Does it sound familiar to you? This is this relevant Abraham Lincoln at the end of his presidency. But this is him. Has He started and he scared and he's nervous. He loses the inaugural address. He goes to visit his dad's father's grave before he leaves Washington. Dc to be sworn in and when they tell him he's one you'll appreciate. He is playing literally handball on the back of the building. When they're telling me is one and you get to see Abraham Lincoln be a person he's an actual human being scared in like he's convinced for sure you'll see the dream sequence in there that he has that he's going to die. Walk is an office. And he's absolutely running calls shot early. It's amazing in the same way. That Lin Manuel Miranda so beautifully brought history and made it relevant and made it palatable for today in the way that like you're placed in that moment and you feel like in a context that yeah that's what a Meltzer book will do to you is L. Lincoln conspiracy will again at the end. Get it. Let's jump into another story while we've got you here okay to it We're bringing it up right now. Okay here we go This is the story of somebody who should have never been in the situation to begin with and then how they reacted and what we all. Think of by Lenny at 'EM LEONARD. Eight all right Leonard. Part eight comes with From CNN DOT com. That I got was from the Palm Beach Post. All right a surprise company outing already and surprise. We're going on a company outing like I'm good To An airbase caused a sixty four year old Frenchman so much stress that he flung himself from a fighter jet in mid air. Now we covered this story. We talked about but I'm excited to see. What have we talked about this story on our daily podcast? This is insane. There's so many bad. That is already disappointed that he's French and not. Floridian the Florida part of France which. I don't even know what that would be or the French part of Florida causing so much stress. He hung himself from a fighter jet in mid air you had grabbing the ejector button in a panic and tumbling through the skies above France before landing in a field. You should not be able to grab the ejector button that easily right. So why can you grab an injector button yet? No I'm assuming that it was down by his hand yet. There's got to be like a thing. You have to flip over pushing. You don't grab it. He's like I'm just going to put more air on right here. Like what like he's yelling. He's yelling to the pilot like the guy was probably like grab that Red Button and hold on red. Bud Yeah God it. Just it's poor Grad the orange button you you grab the red color buttons ran colorblind. That's what you need to. You need to cover that before the periwinkle but no not the light blue..

"This is pat gray unleashed brad meltzer author of ordinary people changed the world series joins us now hey brad hey brother pat how you doing i'm doing good you i'm good i'm good finishing book tour which is a good thing because it means i get the dick nap yeah yeah it's great so the most recent books that you've done on these ordinary people change world series for kids is our IM while disney and i am marie-curie recuring correct yes so i heard you talking to glenn about the walt disney book last week and he's he's a huge fan of walt disney what is it our kids don't know about walt disney that that they can learn from from the series yeah and you know listen i as you know i started this series to get my kids better heroes to look up to you know heroes not of people famous for being famous but of character and kindness and in this case hard work that's what i want to work for here and walt disney is the great american success story right gives us happily ever after but his life is in some fairy tale it's hard you know people are kids today don't even realise walt disney is a real person mhm like the big statue of mickey and disneyland and disneyworld like oh he's like mickey's friend but his his life was actually difficult and his path was difficult difficult when he was a little kid used to love to draw but his dad didn't like the fact that you could drive it's like you're never gonna make any money doing that it was his aunt who used to buying a book and say hey well you're good at this drawing in this book and as he gets older he turns twenty one and his first movie company is a told disaster they tell me is gonna have to declare bankruptcy he's sleeping in his office once a week he takes a bath in a local train station and i want my kids to know that yeah well you case a big dream you may fail but if you get back up again that's how you fly and that's what the book i am walt disney as about as teaching our kids have fly that's really that's amazing because i i mean you don't you don't think of those kinds of things when you think walt disney you just incredibly successful entrepreneur who was a you know no doubt multimillionaire any had it he had a great from from the beginning but you never hear about this the struggles that he had like you just outlined so that's awesome now the other and that was on top of that i even think of mickey mouse right when when when he created he has cartoon mouse walt disney said i got an idea we're gonna call them mortimer mouse and his wife mortimer's that's a horrible name and and and so he comes up and she says wanted jamie and i don't know mickey and that's how the world gets mickey mouse it's not easy it doesn't come naturally it's horrible partouche doesn't sell and i need my kids to know whatever your dream is chase it chase it chase it if you don't teach your kids that you know your kids learn more falling off the bike and then you on the bike and i knew i wanted a book that would actually prepare them for that and the other thing you need to note there is maybe you should listen to your wife from time to time because right yes yes the multi-million dollar idea let's you sell theme parks wasn't there something with the rabbit too didn't he start with a rabbit he did he had oswal roswell oswald the rabbit free yeah yeah and and basically lost it in kind of like well with you know we didn't put this in the book i think kids you know this is a book for obviously little kids twelve and under and we didn't really want to get into like copyright infringement yes in terms of like explaining that but yeah and that's when you know create another character and he starts with mickey mouse but you know the great part for us was at the walt disney company loves our mission they loved were given better heroes to kids so they gave us mickey mouse and minnie and pluto goofy my kids as we're like you know my daughter's like wales frozen we don't worry honey we got we don't put that in there and for me it's very personal i live in florida and and once a year we then we don't tell our kids when it's going to happen but once a year on the way to school while i drive car pool we drive past the school on one day every year we we drive straight to disneyworld we leave school and drive straight to disneyworld so and that's because i want i want my kids to know that every day you can have some magic in your life as somebody called the truant officer yet because i'm picking up the phone now i want to go to disneyworld too so let's go by the whole point of it is is like that's what walt disney stands for i mean it's like that real magic does exist and it exist when you find your happy place that thing you're doing for him always drawing wasn't making theme parks it wasn't making fifteen dollar dollar balloons it wasn't making you know like a multimillion dollar merchandising empire it was just creating and for some people it's you know it's dance and some people it's karate and some some kid out there is like lego like my kid and i wrote this you know my my son who loves sports are i'm jackie robinson my daughter loves animals i did i am jane goodall but i have a kid who's the dreamer is a kid who was like you know i always just with his lego drawing pictures and i was like i need a book for him and that's what i am walt disney is four is very personally for my my own kid i know this is a part of the book what do you think though walt disney would think of his company today what's become of it it's a good question and i don't know you know i think that you know less than those who wanna hate on disney on disney yeah but at the end of the day what what happens at disney when you go to disneyworld where you go to disneyland you are in this place and i think the reason we got and this is why i think it's probably the best answer for it this is how we actually got disneyland is walt disney was that that used to take on the weekends local merry-go-round in california and they'd be happy on the mary brown and he'd look around and be like man there's nothing but parents do there's nothing but a family to a beat gathering do together he was bored and so he started researching all these places around the country started researching amusement parks restarts gettysburg historical places that families and he said i got it we're gonna make this new park it's gonna have stuff from yesteryear it's gonna have stuff from the future tomorrow and we're gonna have stuff from like a fantasy land and they said okay great well what about stuff from today and he's like no nothing from today and you and i we don't realize i didn't realize when i started writing the book doc is that walt disney grew up in a small town in missouri that was like you know kind of where neighbor helped neighbor that great town where you know there's a main street and there's a train that runs down the middle so when we go to disneyworld and disneyland we see you know disneyland what you really are looking at is a version of walt all disney actual hometown his happy place where he was a kid where he was happy right down to the train down the middle and mainstream USA and i think for me the answer to your question is like the fact that it evoked so much joy and so many people the whole purpose and i i think that that's what always stands for now the other book i am marie curie it's hard to put ourselves into the mindset of you know about twenty one hundred years ago polite society and didn't want women speaking much less you know doing anything like inventing lifesaving tools like the x ray so what did you discover as you as you research research marie-curie yeah you know and and listen i what i know vote murray cure is a nobel prize winning scientist but what i love about her story is that when she's a little girl the russian government won't even teach science two girls they're gonna make them through powerful and you know what they're right there absolutely absolutely right and that she gets older she says she wants to study science when she reached his college age there's no college that we'll even teach science to women so she finds this amazing secret college that against all the rules secretly teaches science to women and even when she wins the nobel prize and one's a second nobel prize the first ever ever win two nobel prizes in two different categories the nobel prize committee doesn't want her speaking at the own place where she's one because she's a woman and i love the fact at her entire life marie curie is told over and over again she's denied all of that you know you can't be a scientist because you're a woman you can't learn because you're a woman you can't speak for sure woman but she never let's stop her and i want my daughter to have that lesson and i want my sons to have that lesson again that's why we you know we played i'm walt disney with i'm marie curie very these two books go together because the medically it's the same message right whatever your dream is you chase it and you chase it and you chase it awesome you know you might might have put too many words in there because as a parent i remember my kids are grown now but i i remember i want i want a book that's like four words per page so what could be done in about thirty eight seconds two minutes to do it but these guys tell you one story that's just a crazy story that have been able to tell but you know i talked to you and you guys are family but so i had this we did this book i am albert einstein i never get to tell the story but it just happened and and there was a we get a lot of people who have kids on the autism community who writes about this book because the book is about me and being weird weird it's okay to be different and this woman writes to us and says i read i am arnstein in your IM series in the order people change the world series and i just want you to know that my sons on the autism spectrum and i wanna thank thank you she says my son recently passed away and we're all like what and she's horrible forest for a parent and she said i wanna thank you brad because this book was the last book that i read and had that lasts happy moment i had with my son was reading i am albert einstein with my son and so we track or through the news i find out where she's from i see that you know the principal of her school tells me that she's coming into actually read the book to the students to honor her son who's passed just a way of course we send books to the whole class we dedicate him through some but here's the crazy part of the story and i know you'll appreciate this is just the long term history person is that she writes me again recently and she says hey brad i want you know i i i'm pregnant again and she said the baby was born and we named him after one of our favorite characters and star wars but i want you to see both names because we named him after the two heroes and i want you to meet young finn bradley and well my gosh like everyone knows me like my thrillers of the TV show on the history channel but this i m series that we've done has brought more joy to us and when i was five years old old people like walt disney and jim henson mister rogers taught me you could use your creativity to put good into the world and that's all we're trying to do here today is with this series of books books is use our creativity to put into the world but we never thought it would pass back like this that's awesome hey brad this is keith obviously my household loves everything you put put out in every genre that you touch these books are no exception mean illustrations themselves are great in fact when we're not reading reading the constitution to my kids in the house where reading brad meltzer books but you you wrote the first conspiracy about the plot to kill george washington and and not to change gears off of the IM ordinary people series changed the world that washington book was so well done on man i'm wondering are you going to be producing anymore writing anymore historical based books like that that was so fascinating and the amount of information information in that first conspiracy book that i was completely unaware of i loved it so much from cover to cover couldn't get enough anything else coming along the pipe with that stuff yeah so quickly yes a hundred percent we are doing a new one that's going to be announced i think the next week or two and you'll see you guys i it's about abraham lincoln so similar random for those this is the craziest story that you read in the constitution to your kids wait listen to this so so obviously the book is about a secret plot to kill george washington in seventeen seventy six george washington found out about it gathered up those responsible hang the man in front of twenty thousand people the largest public execution at that point in north american merican history i love the story of the secret.

"Dollars. When no one knew at the time is four days after that first episode aired a man walked into a fire station in Everett Washington in Washington state and said, I saw the show loss history. I want to bring this back. This is the flag from nine eleven and we spent nearly a year authenticated it working with forensics and working with people were testing it for us to ground zero. And for all these fingerprints and everything else. The head of the former head of the F B I R crimes unit worked with us said to me at one point. Brad. This flag is now more authentic ated than most Rembrandt's museums. And that was always the object that I never thought would come back, and we did get a MAC, I would take any of the other islands. We did from, you know, even the even the silly fun ones. Like the Aston Morton James Bond's original asked more than one of them is missing what missing from a from from Boca Raton, Florida of all places where it was in a wing in an airport being hidden in a storage area. But there were amazing. I mean, there's so EMMY George Washington's teeth. I would take that one his teeth actually went missing from the Smithsonian. They were stolen in the middle of the night. Really? And they're still missing to this day, the the tops of the teeth will returned or maybe the Baden's were returned the tops are still missing. There is still a half a set of George Washington's teeth out there that are missing which bananas. Why would anyone take that? And what do you do with that? But it's missing. And so I would take that one back just in the theme of the first conspiracy. I'd probably go with that one again bread. Latest book is called the first conspiracy. Eighty the secret plot to kill George Washington. Brad meltzer. Thanks so much for talking with me. So appreciate it..

"And the one thing you can see it is so desperately needed with his you know, when when his death had. Happened. Is this kind of outpouring of one word that kept coming over and over and everyone that spoke about him which was the word decency. And to me, I think the reason you heard the word decency so much is we're starving for that too. We're just not seeing it anymore. We can't disagree with anyone. We have to hate someone who doesn't see the way we do. And one of the things I used to talk about with, you know, I knew from President Bush, and I and I just didn't event with President Clinton when his thriller just came out as I asked him flat out. I said, how do you? I said if you watch MSNBC. And someone else watches FOX only each of you watch is only one of them, you have absolutely opposing views of what's happening in the world right now. I mean, one of you is totally pissed him. When he was totally fine. And if if you if we are as a culture living two different realities, how do we ever break that barrier? And and the true answer is we won't in less someone steps forward or unless you know, there's someone new in the White House who will can kinda cross lines. But as long as we we have these diametrically opposed views we're gonna get nowhere. And I encourage anyone listening to this again, whatever your politics are listen to something of on the opposing side, you it'll frustrate the crowd. You wanna bang your head against the wall? But if you don't you're living in an echo chamber, and you're doing yourself. No favours, but go see how the other world sees it is the one thing. I know for sure is it every person you hate politically. And every person you think is so stupid, and they're so dumb because that's what we do with all anyone that disagrees with today. We just you know, we follow them. And we. They're stupid and dumb. But those people have hopes and dreams just like you. And you have to take a moment and say, what are they upset about an endless? I'm not talking about the the pure racists out there like or the Nazis that are out. I mean, you know, there are people that just absolutely need. They're wrong. They're just wrong and some things need to be right and wrong. But the average person is watching these shows the average American is sitting there in the middle who's not doing it out of you know, out of some recent thing work because they want to hurt someone. The average person is just wants the same things you want in your life. And that is the love and be loved to have security to have a good family. And there's something out there that is threatening them. If you take a little time and try and understand that I think it's the only way it's like the old Gandhi. Lessen the only way to change the world. You've got to start with yourself. We're gonna take a quick break. And then we'll be back with more with Brad Meltzer. When we come back in just a minute..
