Why British Podcast 'Triggernometry' Focuses Heavily on America

"I find it fascinating how much of your show is about our politics in America. Well, that's because your politics in America influences everything around the world. I mean, it's one of the things I talk about in the book is in the Burton we now people now started saying that we are a nation of immigrants. And that's just because that's what we heard in American TV. This is what people we just regurgitate American culture. And we think we live in the same place. Actually, quite different places. But that is the power of American culture around the world, which is why it matters so much what happens here because what happens here bleeds out into the rest of the world and we are all dealing with the same stuff that you're dealing with here. And listen, we're influenced in a positive way by America, but also all the nonsense that you have in your country. It's over here now. Yeah. Yeah, yeah. It travels. It travels. We say start to the craziness starts in California, then it infects the rest of America and then it travels across the pond and elsewhere.

"This podcast is sponsored by better help online therapy. Now you've heard me talk about better help before. So let's discuss some of the stigmas around mental health. Therapy doesn't mean something's wrong with you. It means you recognize that all humans have emotions and we need to learn to control them. Not avoid them. Maybe you've been taught that mental health shouldn't be a part of normal life. But I think that's wrong too. We take care of our bodies with a gym. The doctor and nutrition, we should be focusing on our minds, just as much. I think therapy is something that can really be beneficial on an ongoing basis. There's no reason to wait until things are dire, and your mental health is in jeopardy. Before you go to therapy, I see it as the same kind of maintenance I do for my body and soul. Better help is customized online therapy that offers video, phone and even live chat with your therapist. So you don't have to see anyone on camera if you don't want to. It's much more affordable than in person therapy and you can be matched with a therapist in under 48 hours. Give it a try and see why over 2 million people have used better help online therapy. And LeVar Burton reads listeners get 10% off of their first month at better help dot com slash levar that's better HELP dot com slash LE VAR.

I read a couple of his stories on the podcast before, and now I am truly delighted to return to his ura. Tobias is a world fantasy award winning and New York Times bestselling writer, who was born in the Caribbean. He's got a pile of novels in about a hundred short stories, and he currently lives and writes in Ohio. You can find today's story in his collection entitled chagas in traffic and other stories, published by fairwood press. Now, the placement agency today's story follows our main character Riley, who's down on their luck. Riley is trying to make it in a town called Lincoln. Avoiding shady or criminal enterprises as much as possible when they see a job ad that's short on the details, but does include one very important bit of information. It pays well. When we meet Riley, though, they're already on their adventure Tobias just plunks us right down into the action. I had a great time, reading this story and I truly hope you like it.

"Hi, I'm LeVar Burton, and this is lavar Burton Reed. In every episode I handpick a different piece of short fiction and read it to you. The only thing these stories have in common is that I love them and I hope you will too. I'm back. In case you couldn't tell. And I am gearing up for season ten. That's over 100 stories in the proverbial books y'all. So if you know someone who isn't listening to the podcast, I mean, there are a lot of entry points there. NK jemison, anyone, Neil Gaiman, for sure, Ken Lou, if you don't know, you better ask somebody. Recommend an author or an episode to someone who you know will enjoy the podcast. Anyway, I am so very happy to be back and reading a story today by the master of horror and speculative fiction to Nona reve do. Who you may recall wrote free Jim's mind, which I read a few years ago. Tona reeve is an award winning author who teaches black horror and afrofuturism at UCLA. She was also an executive producer on shutters groundbreaking documentary, horror noir, a history of black horror. She has a new novel out in 2022 called the reformatory, a ghost story set at a haunted children's prison, and she's releasing a graphic novel called the keeper based on a screenplay she wrote with Stephen Barnes about a young girl who's dying grandmother, summons a Supernatural caretaker for her. I think that this story, like the last one I read by tanana Reeva is shot through with atmosphere and delves deeply into the dynamics and obligations in a family. The wishing pool was first published in print and in audio by uncanny magazine. And we find a woman named joy, who's been charged with visiting her ailing father in Florida. As someone who's cared for older relatives and tried to find ways to ease any pain and cherish the time I have with them, I felt a lot for joy in this story. Her dad is living in the old family cabin, which holds a lot of memories for joy. Maybe too many memories. And it makes joy think about a place in the Woods. A mystical place that she visited as a child. If you are so inclined, you will find a content advisory in the written episode description. Damn. If you're ready to go to the wishing pool, let's take a deep breath..

"And I thought, why not take this opportunity to answer some questions that you all have about the podcast. So I threw a line out to the LeVar Burton reads, Facebook, discussion group to see what you all wanted to know. And I'll answer some of those questions in a minute, but first, I want to tell you a little bit about what to expect this season. I'll be returning to some of the work of my favorite authors, like Tana reeve do. I'm going to read a great holiday mystery for you. I'll read the winning entry of the LeVar Burton reads writing contest, maybe it's yours, I hope so. And I'm going to bring you a story by one of the all time greats. And that's gonna have to be under wraps for now. It's gonna be fantastic and it will be here before you know it. So be sure you're subscribed to this feed, so you don't miss an episode. And now, with the help of Julia Marie Smith, the best in the business, y'all. We're gonna take some of your questions and hopefully we'll have some answers. Jules? Thank you, lavar, Eva asks, my favorite aspect of the program is the diversity of the authors you read. I'd love to hear about how you approach author diversity and why it matters. Great question. Eva, author diversity and the diversity of points of view from which the stories emanate is really critically important to me. It's one of the reasons why I do this podcast. And enjoy doing it so much. Like when I was doing reading rainbow, my desire is to continue to expose you to new literature to new authors, new voices that you might not ordinarily have come across and it gives me great pleasure when I hear from you feedback that indicates that you really do. Enjoy discovering on the podcast new authors and new voices that you have really embraced and have sought out other stories and material by these writers that makes me very happy. Okay, I have one here from at Davey dubs does on Twitter. They ask, what are the hardest stories to read? Either because of the subject matter or because of funny syntax. What are the hardest stories to read I guess from me the hardest stories are stories that have a lot of characters because most of the voices just come in the moment. It's not like I've spent a lot of time plotting them out. So remembering, you know, in the middle or at the end of a story, you know, how a character sounds that was introduced pages and pages ago can sometimes be a challenge. But when I nail it, it's it feels me with a great satisfaction. Sometimes we play it back so that we'll roll back the tape essentially to make sure that we're matching the one that you got right. Yeah. The one that you really wanted. But put it put it back in my ear so I can so I can match it, yeah. Here's a question about something we actually just tackled. This is from shante. They ask, how does levar approach using accents or pronouncing words particularly those in foreign languages? That is a great question, shante. Julia Marie Smith, the best in the business, is great at sourcing pronunciation guides for me for foreign words. Oftentimes, the authors of the stories are a great source of pronunciations, especially for languages, Chinese comes most immediately to mind for a couple of stories that we've done. In some cases, Jules will basically consult a native speaker and give them the phrases that we're looking at and ask them to record it. So I have a guide track coming into the studio of what the proper pronunciation and accent requires. At bgf central asks, what was your motivation in starting LeVar Burton reads and what turned out to be your unexpected favorite part of the project? I suppose it was just really a desire to be creative in a way that didn't depend on someone else's permission. As I observed the burgeoning podcast industry, I thought, wow, what a low barrier to entry. It is. You really just need a good recording setup. And a good idea. And you can pretty much make a podcast as has been evidenced by the millions of podcasts that exist these days. For me, it was it was the ability to create without asking anyone's permission. It felt like a something that I really was longing aching to do. Here we are ten, 12 episode seasons later. And I love every time I sit down at the mic. Every time I come to the studio, I am excited. I'm nervous. And I love reading these stories for you. Lavar, I'm going to contradict you on one thing. What? What did I say? I'm going to contradict you because you said you don't need anyone's permission. But actually, there have been several questions along these lines of how do you get the stories that you get? Yeah, well. Do you want to, shall we answer that question? How we get the stories is a question I will let you answer. Because that task falls. Squarely on your shoulders. Okay. Well, after the point at which we have selected the story and you've said, yes, this is the one I want to read. Then we go and we seek permission from usually the author, but whoever controls the non dramatic audio rights for that story. So that sometimes is the publisher, sometimes it is the estate of an author who's deceased. So basically we get a license to read that story. We pay a permissions fee and it's, I mean, we do technically have to ask. I just wanted to put it out there. It is true. We do have to ask for permission. Technically. Technically, no, no, no, a very good and valid point. The value proposition as I understand it as I feel, it is, we pay the artist for a limited use. And for that, I get to read their story aloud on the podcast. I believe that all artists should be compensated for their work for their intellectual property when being used by other artists in other mediums. It just, it's the way it should be. Okay, here's one more. This is at I'm underscore spartacus. They ask, I'm a parent who reads out loud every night. What do you think goes into making a really good reading performance? Oh, what a great question, spartacus. What do we question? I think that most important thing is your sense of enthusiasm in telling the story and sharing the story with your child or children. And don't be afraid to try voices. Don't be afraid to step outside of your comfort zone. Because the child doesn't care if you're accent as perfect or if.

When Did Marriage Become so Hard?

"To understand marriage. Today we thought it best to go back to a time and place when marriage was very different. Well i've been studying the history of family for many many years. But i specifically got interested in marriage as we got into these debates. About what traditional marriage was that. Stephanie coons. She's a professor at the evergreen state college and the author of the book marriage a history. Stephanie says the earliest marriages had nothing to do with the feelings of two people or their attraction to one. Another as you probably know marriage was much more about economics and acquiring powerful inlaws marriage originally arose in more egalitarian ban level societies as a way of sharing resources and establishing a peaceful relations with groups. That you might otherwise only see occasionally and you might not know if they were going to be friends or enemies It was a way of circulating obligations and goods. Mary my child off to you and that means you owe me things. But i also you things. Stephanie brought up a famous example from history. The union between cleopatra of egypt and mark antony of rome elizabeth taylor as cleopatra siren of the niles this is from a nineteen sixty three film version. Richard burton as mark antony impetuous leader once in pinson legion dreaded adversary on the field of battle. The hollywood version of the story portrays cleopatra and antony as being very much in love but stephanie paints a slightly different picture. I think the theme song for that Relationship could have been what's love got to do with it. They may have been passionate but it was more passion for power than a sexual. Although sexual probably entered into it to cleopatra and antony marriage was primarily about strategy wrong egypt with the two most powerful empires in the world so getting them anybody who got them together and the gotten alliance between them would be unstoppable.

How did jeopardy goes so out of its way Not to give llevar a job burden has been gracious tweeting. The outpouring of love and support from family, friends and fans alike has been incredible Bialik and a move not likely to endear her to his fans posted from her bet on Instagram that she's a fan too.

There's also concern about the spread of the delta variance in China, and we know the reaction function that that then could prompt from Chinese authorities. So there's concern about growth in China. All of that sounds pretty negative, but that rubs up against what's been a fairly solid earnings season. Four European corporate in a number of European companies upgrading their guidance. And even those in the sectors where they're concerned around Chip supply shortage the messages that they want to be able to produce more so there's a lot of positive narratives coming out of the earnings season.

These stories have in common is that i love them and i hope you will too well. Y'all have picked up on this by now. But i genuinely love speculative fiction and for me.

Kyle busch spanks the field with an eleven second lead coming to the checkered flag. In his ninety eight th career win in this series I think we had a really good piece. Just overall talking with dinger kind of felt like drive off was probably our biggest thing that we excelled that today. Just being able to keep the rear tires on the car longer being able to get the gas pedal down to make a away longer. Instead of sitting there modulating the gas and kind of playing with it and wasting time to get down that was the biggest thing almoner behind me. He was the closest that could keep up with me for about two laps. But i was always in front of him when we were close to each other. So i didn't I didn't really see how well he was through the ss or You know through the slow section stadium section over there to see if that's if he can make ground on me there keep up with me there or whatever so Yeah that's probably about about it all right.
