Hispanic Business at PepsiCo with Esperanza Teasdale
"Let's talk about the professional path and You are now the vp gm of the hispanic business unit for pepsico. What was your path to get there. Yeah i am studied engineering for college. So i was math and science person in high school and my physics teacher mr adrian nouvelle who actually was so important to my life that he came to my wedding by way and kind of steered me into the space helped me with College application letters recommendation. And so i studied engineering before. You're so i've been in a manufacturing environment for awhile. Bump steel toed shoes uniform union arment. And that's really where i started my career At the same time my company was so gracious that They paid for my mba. So i went to Uconn in stamford connecticut to take classes at night and really got more exposed to concepts of business management marketing research and just really loved it and so then when i asked for a new gig they said finance or sales and unlike okay sales and sales and all i need to go into marketing because marketing guides what we're doing in sales and i think they could do a better job and so i was lucky that my General manager at the time created a job and that was that was the beginning of my marketing career. So very classically trained at unilever and then pepsi around marketing from like you know the analysts all the way through up till now you know a vp gm. Which i'm really proud and excited about and And yeah i feel like i'm in a really great role. Right can make a big impact on the careers of our of our folks drive to mercy inclusion and drive the business results faster than general market because the population is growing so quick so and There's just so many things that are benefiting from being in this role that That i'm really grateful about. But that's kind of the the journey really. It was not linear at all Did not start off wanting to and marketing that side of my brain and that analytical process orientation i think does just a market yeah i think increasing edge to a home maybe ten years ago when you made the original switch i think today it's much more analytically rigorous than it has been in the past But yeah no. That's that's phenomenal. And i've had a few folks on the show. That have transitioned from engineer to sales marketing. And it's it's funny the way you went through that transition in how you described it because a few of them have described it similarly meaning they. They went from engineering the sales and then they realized my words not yours. How bad marketing screws it up. And they need to go help marketing. Try to figure that out because it it comes down to the sales folks at some level whether their marketing is getting it right or not so. It's an interesting learning curve and A pathway that. I've heard before. So what would what drove what drove the creation of the hispanic business unit. And how are you guys thinking about like measuring success. That's a that's a big scene seemingly to me as an outsider like it seems like a big big thing like a big shift in how you're organized. Yeah this was created. I believe in twenty eighteen by out. Carrie who at the time was still pepsi. Co when of are really incredible leaders kirk. Tanner who's our ceo and My current boss. Greg lyons our cmo and they just really realize that you know the hispanic Business is untapped potential and if we have a fixed mindset about it and we're not going to capture that growth and So what's the do different because in the past. Yeah we had a multicultural team. That definitely had A role but didn't necessarily have ownership and so the do different had to be to create an organization that was dedicated to this and have the right resources. And that's what they did and And it's been pretty successful. Ever since the the key measures to the other question you had really is around. Hey can we help grow faster with hispanic consumer than the general market. Can we help build equity with this fan of consumer and And those are some key metrics we look at and so far. We've we've been We've been pretty pretty successful doing that.

You know, women. We deal with losing friends and sisters and mothers to breast cancer, right? And so that would be a real life thing that I think they could, You know, wrap up the story line, but also do something good. Bye. Yeah. The majority of this show I was.

Kerri Richardson | From Clutter to Clarity
"Allow. Everybody it's read tracy. Welcome back to the you can. Heal your life podcast. Today our guest is going to be kerry. Richardson and carey wrote a book for. Hey house called. What is your clutter trying to tell you and then her newest book is from cluttered clarity and so obviously see the topic for today. It's going to be all about clutter. And i think in today's times with all the spending more time at home and more time with ourselves and our thoughts were noticing clutter in our houses and cluttering our brain. So i think kerry might be able to help how you doing. Carrie ann doing great. Thanks so much for having me on and just so in case you're wondering Carey do you still live in your tiny little house. Your two hundred forty square foot house share of kerry went from two thousand square feet to two hundred forty square feet so when it comes to physical clutter. I don't think she has a whole lot in there. I check out. She's a real expert and she doesn't live alone in the square pd. I live here with my wife and our two cats. So it's four of us in this little place right exactly so to get started. What are what are the things that you've learned. that causes. clutter both physical clutter and mental. Clutter yeah god. It's such a good question because it's it's such a bigger topic than people realize in the greatest sense so i have found through my work with people that there are really three. Common core causes of any kind of clutter. Whether that's piles of paperwork. You know exploding closets draining relationships and the three core causes our limiting beliefs unrealistic expectations and a lack of boundaries. So when i work with my clients and students and we chiseled down beneath the surface of what's going on in their life. I always come to one of those three right and so when you come to those three what are how do we help with that. So how do we help with unrealistic expectations limiting beliefs or lack of boundaries. Can you give us some tips or ideas. Absolutely so so. Unrealistic expectations is probably the most accessible one. That people can work on right away. This this is you know if you say as soon as i have a free weekend. I'm gonna clean out my garage. That doesn't happen. You know it takes a very special kind of person to actually follow through on that promise to themselves because the job is just too big and the length of time. You're expecting yourself to work on. It is way too long so you can handle unrealistic expectations right away by saying you know what this is a big job. The size of this job overwhelms me actually prevents me from getting started so i always encourage people to work. In these little rounds. I call them palm rounds. That's p. o. M. but that's really just a short term for the pomodoro technique. This is a time management. Tool that i didn't invent i just love it. It's as simple as this. So you choose task you're going to work on. You eliminate all distractions so no email no cell phone. That people know you're not available and you set a timer for twenty five minutes and you work on that task just until that timer runs out and then you take a five minute break. That does a couple things. Not only doesn't make more doable. Because it's such a finite amount of time but it helps get your resistance on board that part of you. Who is really good at talking. You out of doing the things you say you wanna do when if you say. Let's clean out the garage resistance. Go oh no way. That's way too big but if you say well let's just try for twenty five minutes and see how we feel. It can see that kind of light at the end of the tunnel and it'll be much more willing to get started

Consider, for instance, what Cedar Creek pays the delivery service door Dash restaurant operations director Tim Dad and says the fee really cuts into his bottom line. Let's look at $100 order. We'll immediately $30 of that is going to go to the door dash of that $100. Another $30 is gonna go to pay for the food, all things being well. Another almost $30 is going to pay for labor, and Devin says on top of that are other overhead costs. But delivery and take out are now essential. If restaurants like this are going to survive before the pandemic take out accounted for less than 3% of cedar creaks business. Now it's nearly 30% of sales were realizing that more and more delivery becomes almost the inventory in these times. There's people that can't get out or don't want to leave their house. I don't want it. Climbing a current go across the country. Local governments are going after high delivery fees. Cities, including Seattle in New York, have placed caps on delivery commissions in Boulder, Colorado, officials are using cares act money to subsidize delivery service there. Back and beechwood Karen Carmen says the city's food delivery services just considered part of its economic development plan on wheels. Not only do you have to grow businesses and move people into your city, but you have to maintain and retain the people that are here, and this is a great way to retain the businesses. That we need. For now, This city has set money aside to deliver dinner for local residents for the next 30 days or so. Then they'll decide whether to expand to more restaurants or to provide lunch time delivery service, too. For NPR news. I'm Anne Wu.

Kerri Greenidge discusses two books about African-Americans in the years before the Civil War
"Carey. Greenwich joins us now from outside boston. She is the melon assistant professor in the department of studies in race colonialism and diaspora at tufts university. She's also the author of black radical. The life and times. Of william monroe. Trotter and this week she reviews two bucks on the cover of the book review. They are south to freedom runaway slaves to mexico and the road to the civil war by alice l. Baumgartner and the kidnapping club wall street slavery and resistance on the eve of the civil war by jonathan. Daniel wells all right. That's a lot. Carrie thank you so much for being here vegas much for having me. So it's interesting looking at these two books together. They're sort of an error but they told two different sides of the same story. Just if you could tell us broadly. What are the two books about. Certainly the book by jonathan. Daniel wells the kidnapping club. It talks about the organiz. Terror inflicted on black new yorkers by kidnapping club which was a group of investors business owners and police officers in new york city in the years before the civil war and they use the fugitive slave law to be enslaved to kidnap african americans. Who were living nominally free in new york and transporting them back into the south and then we have our gardeners beautiful south to freedom runaway slaves to mexico which traces the journey of escaped slaves to mexico again in the decades before the civil war and the relationship between mexico freedom and concepts of recent citizenship. So the story of the kidnapping club if it is at all familiar to listeners. It's probably most familiar as the story that was told. In the recent film. Twelve years a slave it was sort of lightly fictionalized version the memoirs of solomon northrop but. What's the larger story here. The larger store which i think john wells does extremely well is a story of the complicity of the north in enslavement and enslave rate and the fact that american slavery was a national and a transnational institution and that to argue that somehow new york city was acknowledged as a free state although that was true because slavery was a national international institution. The powers that be in new york in the years before the civil war were dedicated to upholding that system. And so it really goes into the heart of this notion. What does it mean to be a free person. A free african american in a country and in a global system that endorsed racial slavery. The other thing that. I think jonathan daniel wells book does very well is connect the distrust the relationship between the police and law enforcement particularly in new york city. But we can use that. As a microcosm of parts of the country between new york city's police department and authorities and the black community and this video the trail that the black community felt justifiably so and experience at the hands of the police being an organized club to kidnap particularly black children and send them back into the south heart so obviously there are some contemporary parallels but one thing i thought was so interesting. That you point out in your review is the extent to which the various powers from the insurance business to the finance community to the law community was entrenched in maintaining the slave trade. Can you talk about the extent to which the early capitalist economy of new york city sort of thrived and depended on slavery so in wells book. He shows that the number one there was a cultural connection between the financier is in wall street in new york city and slavery in the south and so all of the banks all of the investment firms all of the capital that was funding the system that it took to maintain enslavement for instance investing in the distribution of food distribution of goods that were sent into the south to maintain slavery. That was a business and that was run through wall street's financial system and so it wells argues shows is that that system was dependent upon southern slavery. Southern slavery was dependent behind that system and so there was a vested interest by very very powerful people organizations in new york city to maintain and to ensure that slavery existed there is also a very vested interest in ensuring that fugitive slaves who escaped would be returned to the south given the fact that we're talking about black bodies commodities and the fact that if a black person escaped that was in the crude terms of the time somebody losing money and investment and so this whole machinery of kidnapping african americans and sending them back in the south. It was a business and it was making a lot of money for a lot of people.

"Me except what they recognize my voice. Somebody will hear me talking at a grocery store. And they'll whiparound be like i it's strangest thing And i and as you were you asked before what sort of. How do i when i look back on it. How does it feel but especially during the pandemic more people have watched the leftovers since the pandemic started it. And i'm having a resurgence of questions about it from journalists and also love for it on the internet and things like that but whenever i do have an interaction with the leftovers fan are so devoted. Because they've had some experience in their lives that is about grieving divorce so the loss of someone and they they share it with me and so there's nothing trite about those interactions and way that i find deeply satisfying them very often. Fly into the radar. As you can see from this hairstyle and tie-dye biden shirt but i i find it really really gratifying as an artist to get to have those conversations. We don't be afraid everyone. If you see me and you want to tell me your story telling me yeah. It's nice like she is. She does podcast twice for the price of one not getting paid So we were talking a little bit about your viewing habits in the pandemic. i know you in tracy. We're doing the big movie night when you're back in chicago. You're now as i understand that moving into television series. What are you benching. Anything right now yes okay. See if i can terrible. I always say tracy. What are we watching. We're watching. we're watching no one said a thing. The documentary about the vigilante killing in a small town. I don't know but man they kill a town killed their town bully in missouri and the never. It's never they've never revealed who it was. That actually shot him twice. So that's the and what what impact that has had. That collective bargain has had on the town or watching that. We're watching euphoria. we just started. We watched that we just finished pen fifteen season two which i really little white related stuff heels really truthful not not all of it to me but i thought those women are just so i think they're wonderful What else have we watching something. I won't really didn't like if i say what will eventually become comfort move homeland. We're watching the last season land because one of our dear friends is in. It has a big part so where we had kind of you know. We hadn't caught up in a little bit. So and course tracy was on that couple of ones tracy's out like forget it. We don't. I'm like i'm out. You did tell last time. We spoke briefly and i want to mention it again because it's a great movie and worth wreck recommending. I still have not seen it in about thirty years but we had a mutual love and respect for comfort movie. What was it again. It send him a pair de so maybe the first foreign language film i ever saw i told you before. My grandfather's father ran a movie house in akron. Ohio when he was a little boy and so he always had a real love for film and actually did a little bit of community. Theater is probably the only other actor family but So i go over to my my grandpa and grandma dis house. Because they really helped raise us. My parents worked both worked and they had five kids and so we spent a lot of time with my grandparents who had both been retired in their fifties because they had a terrible car accident that they survived. Then they were available to help. Raise us. Which was a godsend. So so we'd go over and spend the night we'd always watch movie. And that was that he loved. And he whenever i had friends come over then to spend the night he made he would make all my high school friends. Come over and watch it because he liked to watch them all right. I was gonna say if you watch party so and you're not crying. You're you're dead inside. And yeah and i say to you before it has one of the great all-time scores from it does. It does the marconi scores amazing. So it's it's you don't wanna give anything away about. It's just fun. It's a fun to watch. It's a nice romantic just beautiful film. So romantic is the nest on pure romance me as little horror romance in this relationship at once what i think. That's i'm glad you said that. Because one of the things i love about is i think you get a real sense of history. I think you get a sense that they're really well matched and that that they were probably a really good time. People like to be around them right. It's you you. Jude law sean. Durkin the director of martha. Marcy may marlene. I like to say that. So i have to say it And yeah this one has been talked about since we got sundance by the way for this one to where we were at sundance quite a journey lifetime ago i know i was there too. It does feel like three thousand years ago. Does what have you learned about this film. Subsequent to making it in the conversations with audiences or journalists like myself. Would've you said oh wait. I didn't even occur to me. It's funny you know the biggest change for me is how many people think of rory as a psychopath or really just a really damaged guy. And that that they don't think dignifies alison to stay with him and they think there's no chance to survive. When i think of the movie is so hopeful. Be i do because i think the movie ends at this place where you know. They've made these tacit agreements. And they've gotten they've gotten away from that communication and now they have a chance to sort of start over from an honest place and that's the only way any relationship survives. I mean you can stay in a relationship. Too long without that and marriages are built on less. But i really think they have a chance to to make a profound change in their dynamic. You alluded to this before to you. Do you like right up a backstory. Talk to sean about like. What was this marriage early on like. What's is that important to you especially in a process like those a story like this. It might have important to me ten years ago before i had a toddler. Now i don't have a lot of time on. Yeah that's right and well here's the thing about a good script. So shawn's sean script is really specific. The relationships really specific and if a script is really good really in my opinion everything you need is on the page. If you show up and tell the story your most of the way there. I did have a meeting with sean and judy before we before we made the film they very kindly came to my apartment. Because i had a little baby and we talked through some of that. Stuff the backstory in history. And i know that. Jude and sean really got into roy's backstory in in a lot of detail. But i didn't do as much of that. Because again i i felt like. There's a lot of clarity in the scenes. I knew what she wanted but she was doing. And so after that it was just see you on set aside from the horse training right so i don't. I don't tend not somebody who does like encyclopedic backstory. I do a couple of exercises. I've learned if i'm you know like what is what are the characters. Say about you what you say about yourself but that kind of goes out the window after we start especially because i had a baby and no husband when i'm shooting there's no time this is a an alternate rare leading performance for you and a film. We've seen you obviously carry the screen in several television series. But hopefully it doesn't come the reviews and the reception. This leads to more opportunity. I think it's the kind of film that filmmakers will see. And if filmmakers see it then maybe they'll give me a job right people will see this stuff Speaking of right people every actor loves. Jason reitman it. What do people. Why do actors.

"This is very reasonable. Always everybody complaining about. Traffic's what was going on that i didn't have that experience but it was funny because i had i had gone. I've done a tape in my living room that was eighteen pages of material and had like a day to prepare and my buddy came in and taped with with me and then i went to a wedding and new orleans. It was a friday. And i flew to new orleans like that night and it was on sunday of that same weekend. I got a call and they said can you be in l. a. On monday morning. I was like Yes and i flew. I realized i had packed for weekend. And i left my jeans and the hotel so i had no pants like. It's la with no pants you know and so i had to just figure out the city and they wouldn't. Hbo wouldn't let me meet. David fincher sony. Hbo couldn't agree that they didn't know if the show is going to get picked up and they didn't want me to meet david if i wasn't actually going to be released to the movie so they were putting off are meeting for a week so i ended up changing my flight three times or something and i was in la for. I don't know seven or ten days. I didn't meet him till the very last day right before. I flew out of town and i booked. Guests are spot so i flew home. Repack bag came back to la and shot for ten days on a cbs show. And that it was. I was in a trailer. I think on the lot. When i got the call ten days after my audition that i was actually going to do the film but it was a very very strange time. When did when did you know that you were cut from the same cloth as as our dark genius. That david fincher. Well i think a the the way the character was written. I know he was in my in. My when i went to audition i read. David read all the scenes with me and he gave me adjustments. I think to see if i could take judgments namely see if i could take direction but i could tell that he was certainly comfortable in that tete-a-tete the the the rhythm of that piece you know. It was very clear from the outset that he really he was the dark dry guy that he turned out to be and then onset just the way he was making fun of. Everyone's to my heart so i think we fell in pretty quickly to a nice report. What would you say to an actor. That's about to to work with with him. Well don't make it about you you you're going to get your own way just Except that you deserve to be there. You know you're there for a reason he believes you can deliver and me. He won't let you go until the end of the day when when he's gotten it if you don't get it you'll still be there so if you've left that means you got it so just accept that a move on and know that he's he is a perfectionist but he's looking at the whole picture and so you can't take it personally right if it's about you you'll know you'll know that too and you have to keep breathing and listen and keep trying to get it right and Also he he loves. We talked about this a little bit the last time but he does try to wear actress down so they get rid of their habits and but he also so for that reason he actually loves an organic mistake. I- bobbled the phone in one. Take and i broke. And he was like nah. That was it because it was really funny because it was a real person making a real mistake which what. He really loves so. It's not about being mechanical. Actually it's actually about being human. But i think it gets misconstrued often when you hear the horror stories about getting fired from the david fincher movie but he was also i think we i think we were working with him at a really good time in his life. I think in a really you just felt really relaxed and present and kind of like he was enjoying his life in a way that maybe you know maybe hasn't always i can't say but as one as we take this is about the drop on bad wrote it i now i haven't seen it yet. I can't wait actually saw some stills from it but it's gorgeous yeah i got a chance to check it out in a special day in the herald's household on a new feature movie comes out. I can't wait miss. Everyone's there's a lot of buzz. Buzz buzz buzz out there as you look back a few years removed from leftovers. I mean you must have in the in the those three years. Appreciated nora appreciated. What a usual show. That was an amalgam of tom. Prada's satire and david lindell australian writing But do you. Do you look back at it differently now with a few years removed you appreciate it more. What's your perspective on not experienced. Now so i think. I think i understand that it will be if if something like that comes along my way again. It'll be like lightning striking twice. It was just such an unusual show and it asked so much of me just as a as an actor as a woman. women's roles are often brit. pretty narrow. And i you know you know the scope of what i got to do in that show was breaking things getting mad and shooting things and it was just really fun and i know how rare it is to come across something like that. It was really challenging. It was the first time. I mean when i did episode six. That was the longest i've ever been. You know on camera at a stretch. You know in that certain length of that sort of rigorous ten day shoot or whatever it was her seven days shoot so i learned a lot on that show but it also it also taught me about standing up straight and my voice voice got lower actually over the course of the show i figured out a route. It a little bit better because she was so grounded in a way you. She just was walking into rooms and standing up for herself in a way that i never learned to do so. She really taught me that and yet at the beginning of every season always feels like putting on a wet bathing suit. Every say like you know. It's your bathing suit. But it's a little uncomfortable. It was a gift. I don't know how this makes me feel. But i heard you say another conversation.

"Teen Drama in movie form and it just. Kind of. Went a little too long in that area too because you see, sue snell trying to be nice to carry getting Tommy to ask her to the dance and everything but she's also still one of the popular girls and she kind of just goes back to normal every time she's not planning to you know have Tommy ask carried to the dance so it felt a little disjointed for her character in particular because she is part of the group of girls who gang up on her when she gets her period in the shower and starts freaking out you know they all start chanting at her including sue and. It kinda just goes back and forth too much with her to really get a sense of how much she actually cares, and then the police interview was Super Weird and you know her character felt disjointed a little but with Kerry. Her character was played exactly as expected from start until they change things up and she lives. Yeah I I agree with that I think that. Angela bettas gives a really consistent performance tonight. You know every moment that she has really believable as Keri. which I feel like the other characters don't really have like either in terms of their behavior or like their dialogue just lake. Exits the realm of believability. But I think that Angela Badass release daily of as carry throughout the whole thing. I would say the same for Tommy too because you get that early scene where Carey's in the library glancing up at him while he's reading a book and these other guys start making fun of her because it's clear that she likes him and you know. Of course, he's the popular cute guy in high school and a lot of girls probably like him but he takes the book and Chuck at this Guy's head because he's being a total dicta carry and it's that moment where you're like, okay, Tommy is not like the other guys. He's not your stereotypical jock popular guy and that remains consistent throughout as well. So I think. Getting, those two characters, right really helped. Things improved during the prom scene. Yeah. I I agree with that for sure and I think that. You do actually like Tommy And this and I think which, which again makes it all the more weird that suicide ambivalent about his death in the police station interviews because Tommy legitimately seems like a good guy. You would think she would be at least upset about him dying for sure. Maybe not everyone else because she kind of knew that. These people weren't great and you have the gym teacher who's explaining to carry you know this is the peak for these girls and. While that might not necessarily remain true today I do feel like there was a point in time where the popular kids. Maybe, didn't go on to be quite as successful as everyone thought they would be. Yeah I think that's true I. Think her her speech to carry is is a is another one of the good parts of the prompts it's a little bit dated but even For the time I think that it works pretty well and it gets the. Point across it gives you know carry something to hope for which I feel like again is like under cut by the fact that she lives because I think that the fact that carry dies and then she's just gotten this this speech beforehand from the gym teacher I think is one of the. Aspects that makes her story. So so heartbreaking I also really did enjoy the scene where the principal stands up to Chris Harbinson's father who is this hotshot lawyer and he just whips out Chris's file and his like. Well, your daughter is a piece of trash basically. Yeah, that was a good scene to. It was one of those things where you're like, okay there are people standing up for Kerry. This means you know hopefully. Chris will lay off her and obviously we know the prom scenes going to happen. You could not have carey movie without it but it gives you a little hope that there's at least a couple people on carries corner but I still didn't like the ending because I was like I understand but. Carry needs to die like I'm sorry that's just how it has to be. For sure and like even if they had gone with. You know they didn't have to do the diploma ending with like the House caving in on her and her mom in the book she has a brain aneurysm from. Using her power. Yeah. I would've been fine fine with that than her dislike living and traveling the Florida. Yeah and I. Love. The element of the town just becoming. A place that nobody lives in a place that nobody wants to go to nobody wants to rebuild their or you know anything like that. That was one of the endings that I felt was. A little more powerful for Stephen King. Because when I've been going through the books, I've been talking a lot about endings and sometimes he tax on like one thing too many to the endings like tossing an epilogue and I'm like you didn't really need that. But with Carrie because of the way the book is and you're seeing all of these news clippings and things like that you. Understand why that book ends the way it does. Have this movie go in the complete opposite direction, not really make it clear what happened to the town either it was just a disappointing ending that kind of killed any momentum that the prom scene had going for it definitely and I, just like the idea of continuing carry story with her like helping other you know tele kinetic kids is just like such a it's such a weird idea. It's such a early two thousands idea where they're trying to. Copy off of a Buffy, the vampire slayer and small though it seems like they wanted it to go. In that direction, but it's so not carrying. It's just not what I. Think Stephen, King really had in mind. So just really it takes a takes the air out of the story. I will say though I would love to see Brian Fuller take another stab at a Stephen King adaptation because I think now that he's done Hannibal, he might have more leeway and be able to get a bigger budget and maybe do something that's not on tv or even something like a TV mini series on HBO or something. Want Bryan Fuller to get another shot because this ended up being. A disappointment and you know the original network, it was released on was NBC. So you can't really like I said earlier do too much with that. It's like they have their limitations for what they will show on. TV and you could tell right off the bat with the shower scene it was not like the shower scene in the original by a long shot so I feel like. It just ultimately ended up falling flat is there anything we haven't touched on though that? You WanNa touch on Richard Oh I love to touch on how the The meteor seen and the beginning was handled just because like that is kind of from the book. But I feel like that's one of the things we're like in terms of doing street at doesn't entirely work at least not on like television budget. Yea. I actually had a note about that too because I had recently watched rose red which it's not the same thing that happens but the girl basically has rocks fall from the sky into someone's house because. Their dog attacked her or something and I was like this feels a lot like they were trying to kind of replicate something that yes. Happens in the book but also visually happens in rose red. Yeah..

"Like don't think was a was a great thing for movie I I feel like I think John Travolta had such a great presence as billy he really remembered him but I mean this guy and I don't know if it was just like the direction or what but he just had zero presence. He was the guy who was meant to look like the bad boy and that's all he did was look like the bad boy there was like such a flatness to the performance and it really took time away from some of the other things to the police interviews did that would have been better served for the story to dive into those other things more and. Because of how many? Teens, we kind of meat and they. Come and go you know there's the couple who sits down with Tommy and Carrie at the table and I was kind of like, okay. The girl looks familiar but I'm a little confused because you know it's like so many of the mean girls are blonde and then you have you know these other characters just kind of popping in and being part of the conversation and I was like I, don't even know who these people are and why they're choosing to sit with Tommy and Carrie it. was like, okay. Are they friends of Tommy's obviously the guy was and then you know you get this feeling that they're not necessarily just trying to be nice to carry out of pity. It seems like they really are trying to sort of be welcoming and have her have a good time and I think at the end when the ones escape through the air vent, it almost felt like it was the people who were being nice or nicer to carry other than Tommy obviously, who make it out? Yeah. That was that was a weird thing as well because I, think you know I and this goes back to like the the horror Allen I think that part of what makes carry work as a horror novel in. Departments from work as a horror movie is that you know when when she unleashes in in the Gymnasium. At the Prom, it's not she's not saving. Or. Not using her Herath, directing it towards people who are who are nice to I mean everybody has the gym. Teacher. She she dies in diplomacy. It's. It's you know often you feel terrible about and that's part of where the horror comes from. With this it was kind of like okay. Well, these few people who you know we're a little more kind to her get to escape and was yeah I. Think it was just one of those things that the story was mismanaged just enough to really pull you out of the horror elements of the story and It felt like. Maybe. Because It was made for TV. They went a little lighter on these things because if I'm remembering correctly the original Kerry. While they didn't really have the rating system that they do now for movies but obviously naked girls running around you know not a PG movie by any means and the twenty thirteen movie is rated r. from what I can tell. So you really get a feeling that. This one just had limitations and it wasn't able to go all in on the story that Stephen King wrote, which is unfortunate and I really really did want to like this more than I did Angela. Bettas as Carrie white is obviously. The runaway highlight for this and I was still excited about Patricia Clarkson, but by the end I was like, oh. Okay. They kind of did her wrong in this one you know even though you don't want to like Margaret. White you're just like, Oh, well, this didn't live up to my expectations of this horrendous mother who religious should not have a child at all and it really just brought this movie down quite a bit. Yeah even the final conflict between carrying her mother is just it's so anti-climactic. She's just stops her heart. There's no. Major confrontation. There's no you know again, I don't like to to keep comparing performances but piper warrior it's just like so amazing as Margaret just like really sticks with you and I think that Patricia Clarkson is obviously like an actress of equal caliber. Wish that you know she could've brought some more energy because we've seen her do that and other roles, and so it just was really unfortunate that it ended the day. With Kerry stopping our heart and really there's no, there's no confrontation there. It doesn't really feel like you know much is much comes out or much is resolved and in that action yeah. Are there any particular moments that did stand out to you though as either having potential or just being some moments that you liked more than probably the majority of the movie? I do think that women when the bucket of blood falls on Kerry and she goes into that almost trance-like state and walks through the gymnasium on fire in her walk through past the gas station him through the town I thought that was was pretty well done. That was probably of a the highlight of the movie for me I think that I think that the the energy of the movie really changes like once they get to. The. Prom, like I think the direction is a little better and yeah, the writing is a little better from that point on. So it's interesting because it feels like that's the part that. You know the filmmakers really wanted to to go with and the rest of it is just kind of like. Filler So I I did enjoy the kind of. Prom scene aftermath. They did do a very good job of replicating the iconic Kerry look because as soon as the blood falls on her, that's the look. Everyone really knows it out. She's drenched and her pink dress is now covered and red, and it's just like her hair is looking completely disgusting 'cause it's full of those nasty blood and. When she's in that translates state you understand okay. This is what this movie has been building to and all of the high school drama stuff was very Of the time, it was even more so than the original movie and. I felt like I was watching some..

"For meet again. What was the difference that you recognized between Queer relationship in a heterosexual relationship that you felt was worth exploring mining I think for me because again like there's nothing essential about either. But there are these sort of ways that like Maggie Nelson she talks about in. argonauts. Homo normativity. I mean. There's all these ways than any couple sort of veers until like convention and then. There's ways that any couple straight gay or inbetween veers into like you know things that are unconventional but there were just these versions of like someone like Peter and Nance like this just like like I think as someone especially in my twenties like when I was still grappling with my own sexuality and really wanting to kind of hoping I was just going to be straight like I. Really, even into the twentieth like I just I'm only telling you this because it's also in my book I wrote. So this is not like. Oh, my God, what a big Aha moment but. My Dad came out in his mid fifties and it was all of a sudden. Wow I. was like wait a second. This is such a gen-x like nineties version of me because now people are so like they'd be so excited for their parents to be gay but I was like cool. But I was like, Hey, like kids are the ones that we're. Supposed to like rebel against, you need to like hold out you need to like hold this the family down traditional you gotta be traditional like now I've got to go out and find a husband and get married. You know like it was it was so complex like I was like Oh, my God I sound. So conservative like get back in the cause death. So funny. But wasn't your dad also the one who when you were, you were out of sorts by that article in Spin magazine and didn't he say? Carried. Is there something you want to talk to me about? Wasn't he a little weird about how ya? He's like for sure and also I, mean he wasn't like closeted. He just really didn't know like he wasn't having any kind of secret. Affairs like he just grew up in a time where there wasn't. He wasn't meeting other gay people. He didn't really know what these feelings were I mean or wasn't willing to name them until. He was in the middle of his life and also with help of the Internet and chat rooms I think just. Connect connect with other people because. Think of the loneliness sort of pre Internet for any. Buddy feels marginalized like just not recognizing themselves and not I think Oh yeah and my dad was confined to such. Straight worlds you know he he was a corporate lawyer he lived in the suburbs. So it wasn't like he was just surrounded by examples of like Queen s you know. So there there was just no reflection. Or even like the Castro. Yeah. Yeah. So they're time in a place for him to imagine another version of himself. Until you know the Internet came around and all of a sudden you just feel this encroaching like familiarity and you're like, oh, there's so many other people like me including people his own age that had been living. Married to in straight relationships Terry was this during this after they got divorced, they got divorced when you're fourteen. So was this was this while they were going through that? No No, I mean after my parents got divorced my dad dated three women like no, he I mean he was very committed to this narrative of who he is I. Mean I wouldn't even call it a narrative I mean it was his life. It was he was the script that he was playing by an I just think it really. Did, he struggle in those relationships as did that's fascinating to me did did he? Was Did you ever talk about the you know what that struggle was like for him. Not Necessarily I think whatever that struggle was was only. In the lack of struggle. Once he came out, you know what I mean like. A- because once he came out and and now he's he's married to a man who has been with for over fifteen years. Then all of the sort of almost like partial, the personality whatever like that sort of inchoate version of himself was only recognizable in the contrast you know like. Just seemed. He didn't seem a repressed before and then but then when he wasn't repressed, it was like Oh you were repressed like in so many ways just even like emotionally. Just became such a fully formed human. Once he came out like he was very closed off before and so. It made sense for him to not be super affectionate with a girlfriend because it wasn't like he was super affectionate as a dad. So it wasn't like Oh, you're such a warm guy. You're so like frigid around your girlfriends, it was just like, no, he's just this kind of uptight. You Know Dude Yeah. So you you saw you saw an immediate change in his behavior even toward you I mean, he was just seemed more. Piece I mean yes. Like. Just. Crying at every movie I mean said let said. It was like. Elliott was just I, can't even for a while there is a time you'd like couldn't even talk about Billy Elliot or the film Big Fish or Bryan Song that story of. Course Gale Sayers Yeah I read suddenly my dad was just like waterworks every time he like talked about like a story that had to do with like a guy and his dad and like coming into his own and so it wasn't I get it. I mean I'm I think heterosexual but. When I'm fifty four because I, also I also get emotional at all of those movies. Well, no I mean to be fair. It shouldn't really be assigned to any spectrum of sexually it was just that. It's so generational to that. You know for my dad like you know he's. In a seventies that just wasn't an option to. Go to a movie and come out and be like it'd be really sad it was like he was just he's just had access to so much more of himself and I think I think a lot of I think a lot of people now have hopefully have access to all those parts of themselves from an early age but I think generational for him that just did not exist. For sure my dad, my dad is the. That's not the same in that he is. Repressing some sexuality, but he I think the older he's gotten in in the more in touch with our. Emotions we've been we show them that had him that it's Okay I. Think he's now. More at peace with you know expressing those emotions and being connected to. Yeah set must be such a relief to just sort of be given permission cultural permission or or even like on a smaller smaller level just familial permission to just not have to hold all that stuff in you know to not have to signify. Like as as these systems, just start to erode and they're. They're sort of late. Long overdue and being deconstructed I. Think it's actually very liberating for a lot of people because it also takes a lot to hold up those systems and I think you know for certain like this white men like not everyone is just like like, Lemme reexamine this and by reexamining this I'm actually I'm also a better person. You know who? Absolutely and it's interesting that you had that reaction to your dad because I would think. Of people you know you you were saying you struggled with in your twenties and. Something that you were not at peace with for awhile, and it's so interesting that you reaction wasn't like I'll dad. All right. You know that it was like wait what the fuck I like it as an example because it is so deeply contradictory and I just think this idea of holding troops at once is so important for understanding the flawed nature. Of people you know and the and the parts that just don't line up and I think we all struggle with accepting that in ourselves and also accepting that and other people that they can be both things that they can have done really great things and then. Also done something that we disagree with like it's. That's where a lot of. That's where humanity comes from, and that's where so much art comes from. You know are those those places of discomfort those those little problem areas that we just can't like iron out that's that's where the novel springs firmer. That's where the song springs from all those thorny parts. So as much as I. Sort of hate to admit that I was like what when my dad came out, it's just like that Saddam just between that can be so contradictory that I could like be queer myself that I could believe. So fundamentally in like you know human rights inequality and all these things. But what my dad just to be straight dads that you know and then my dad embodies these amazing contradictions to where you know again he's out and proud and married to a man and lives in a small town in in Washington state that is very conservative and. Like stood out as an example like he and his husband have probably changed minds we know one neighbor of his high. But. Occasionally. We'll just say the most homophobic shit you know I'll just like I I moved into this house. In La.

"So maybe he doesn't know as much but it's just it's an maybe it's it's rural maine and no one wants to listen to disco but whereas like ccr van like right there's no there's no risk stollings. That's actually the thing. That surprised me is like i. I know stephen king towns toward kind of the classic rock. And there's none of that here yet. At this point it was contemporary rock. So i don't know maybe he only likes things once. They're classics right. Because we're eventually going to get to the point. Where reading these books. And it's going to be like obscure roadhouse music from the one thousand nine hundred seventies which is clearly what he was listening to you at the time. So i don't know. I have no. I don't have any logic. You've got an answer to this question. I would love to hear. It would help us out a whole whole lot so michael. What's the next book worried in the chronological order. Reading the stephen king novels the next novel we will be reading. Is stephen king's second novel salem. Slot it's a good one. Yeah i think. I've probably read it more than the other steven king book. I don't think that's the case for me. But i know i rented a couple of times and i do like it and it's very interesting. It's i'm very excited looking forward Because if carry. Is stephen king in kind of a particular stephen king mode in salem slot is like another type of stephen king right another type of novel that he writes a sort of different versions of moving forward in the same way that we're going to get different versions of kind of the The carry setup rate not not like a specific plot but sort of the feeling in tone and Aim rate the ambition of the story. He has this kind of ps two modes that he bounces back and forth between It'll be really cool. I think i forgot to bring us up to go. But i think it's a good way to control it. You're telling me michael that there was originally a different ending to carry yes So apparently in the first draft of this novel the end was completely different because when carey a lost it at prom she didn't just psychically destroy everything. She in fact grew horns and got really tall and stopped around like godzilla and kings editor or would be editor right. The person who was like pleased for the love of god. Write a book that i can buy and sell This ending and they apparently had had a lot of back and forth about how to make the ending of this book I believe the the editors actual comment was like not a comic book And i just wanted to take a moment. Imagine the world where we very said. Stephen king is not always grated endings. Imagine the world where kerry comes out and the end his carry transforming into a kaya ju And like that's what her psychic power does. It's bad but i but on the other hand. I wanna see brian depalma. Well we'll maybe continue to learn about some other things that got cut or changed as we move into salem slot We're gonna spend the next month reading that in the mobile reconvened to discuss it in the meantime You can keep up with us. In all.

"This segment is called my favorite kingsholm. This is the segment where cameron i are going to independently. Choose one sentence That we found in the novel that we think is a good example of a king ism which is to say a particular tick of his prose style or his narrative voice Basically this is a. This is a stephen king sentence rate. Only stephen king could have written us Said you have your heavier sentence. Cameron a jew k. Tweet about this. So people marino it. But i wanted to cry but it was too real to cry about stephen king tony. What is up. And that's the kind of thing that stephen king does he make. Sure that the moral and the emotional stakes of everything is happening all the time. If i had a runner up that if i had a had a second one it's it would be the the sections not really sentence but it would be the section where sue and her memoir keeps talking about. we were kids Very reminiscent stand very reminiscent of like things happened in the past. You can't control and yet you have to live afterward and live in the wake of of awful things. Also another huge stephen king county thing my sentence is from the beginning of the novel is actually from the section where the principal is meeting with the gym teacher In some context here is that the principles accidentally knocked over his ashtray. And so he's as. He's talking with the gym teacher. He's lake Sort of fiddling around on his desk like trying to wipe up these ashes and he asks her to hand him that little. Brush their miss desk jordan. Yes that's it. She handed him a little brush with the legend chamberlain hardware and lumber company. Never brushes you off written up the handle and this is One of those little bits of like this is a very stephen king thing of adding just the right amount of texture to a seen. Not only is the situation like in many ways carry. The novel is like a social comedy. Like especially early on like. There's a lot of likes of small town social comedy happening In this in particular is lake You know we get. We get the fact that The principal has this little brush. Then he got obviously a freebie from the local hardware store like the hardware store like printed. A bunch of these also like everyone in town has one so we get the sense of the hardware store kind of personal relationships among people and then sort of the Very like social real list lake sense of like these are the things that like. These are the objects that are in the lives of the characters in this novel but also like lives of the reader rate. These are things that i have at home that you have at home. These are things you pick up moving through kind of like mid-century middle-class american life. I also love that seeing that that. There's an additional additional layer of kingdom to that scene because it's right after carry has been in his office and she's upset and she knocks the the ashtray onto the ground right with her mind. And the whole setup after that assuming i can think of that. Ashtray was so close to the edge. I thought i had heard back. Golly can you help me out here. Just like not not understanding also a principal. Having in their office ashtray for smoking is you know during the nineteen seventies we. It was a different time slots segment..

"Turn this of it too right. Like you really are reading quickly and stephen king books and so sometimes it's it's hard to know but in any case i'm not quite sure they running into each other in on the street as A billy is in his leg awful shitty evil car and he's going to run down carey and she psychics the hell out of him. Yeah so they are gone right like the car explodes the gas tank catches on fire and then also coincidentally sue snell. The one who the girl who sort of had her change of heart has been wandering around town since prom to hell. She's been trying to figure out what's going on or find someone to help her. And i think she clearly states in because we get experts from him her memoir like that she wrote about this She i think is like almost like drawn toward kerry psychically she can like censor and so she shows up in the parking lot. Just as kerry collapses In the dies because it turns out a doing all of this crazy psychic stuff building on the stuff we've got about her brainwaves and whatever at the beginning has a physical effect on her and her heart just gives out. Yeah and she's bleeding profusely also that. Oh yeah no. Her mom did staffer in the shoulder. So i think it's a it's a it's a combo and and you know this is very much a some appoint to work curious rendered almost fully and human rights so she's like talked about is like withered and bent over and all this kind of stuff. I mean she. She's kind of. She has thrown her entire being and her entire life force into killing all these people and so the yeah but then sue shows up and then her and carey have this like mind meld moment where she gets all of carries emotions and this is like some of the coolest stephen king gas shit on earth. she like mind links with sue as she's dying And so she gets like all this emotion of what it is to die And she's like being dragged down with her in it. It's it's it's very cool seeing as far as like probably one of the best ending. Stephen king's ever written right. Because if you're not familiar with this from king. Stephen king just kind of a fact that the guy is not very good at ending novels like it's not criticism but you know the last tenth of ever stephen king novels is you have a better chance that nod of bit disappointed at the end He's not going to close out. But i think that this close out. Pretty good I will say so. Another bit of sue's character She is laid on her period. Let's talk about themes. She's on her period. She's been sleeping with her boyfriend. She thinks she might be pregnant. After kerry dies after they have this mind meld the last kind of proper line of this narrative that we get in the book is a su finally having her period rate in the description of of the menstrual blood running down her thighs which is a choice. Right it's it's a. I don't know right like okay right. We've got the the period beginning. We've got pig blood at prom and now we have this will. So there's all kinds of things. I i've got two big questions for you michael. This is one so. I'm glad that we that we talked about this. This the end of it..

"Okay this is security goes home. She stops her mother's heart with remind bam mom's yet one of the things that has bothered Like one of one of margaret weitz bugbears is road houses race. She's always going on about the road. Houses where like the sinful music is going on which these are things that i i assume still exist but feel like so incredibly. Dated the idea. Of a roadhouse which of course is a lake sort of country bar of where maybe lots of unsavory characters are going to show up them. There's gonna be a lot of dancing and so on and so forth. Apparently her parents like owned one. Patrick patrick swayze cleaned it up. Yeah yeah say. after patrick. swayze cleaned up. A the roadhouse all all road has got it got substantially better but anyway so this is the thing that lake one of one of the things margaret white obsesses over it turns out. There's one lake a short walk from her backyard across the state or something. Well that's why so. This is the weird thing is is both a short walk and it's like six miles as the crow flies. So is this kind of movie magic moment. Where on one hand. It's pretty far away building in their hand. Not really right so and so The other thing we need to know about. This roadhouse is that chris harbinson and her Awful awful boyfriend. Billy go there to have sex. That's where they hang out. That's where billy hangs out and this is also we're kind of the The moral superstructure of the novel despite being sort of a to Margaret white in every single way less validates her because the evil est character in the novel aside from her is the one who frequents the roadhouse and has like a special room there where he takes his girlfriend doing king's right in the middle east like the definition of a moral centrist rang. Like both or wrong. Okay both margaret right. And the roadhouse a right and then it also ties into. This is the thing that will come in Again like in later. Stephen king novels. Which is the the stephen king. Moral universe Assault like in. Its most abstract sense. That evil is going to cancel itself out in some way right like evil will always like find a way to fall into the trap. It has set for itself. Evil is the left hand of god. There's there's actually a a strong Historical christian way of reading this So carrie goes to the roadhouse And i is it clear why she's going because this wasn't a thing i was like certain about the she know chris and bill. You're there. I think that it's just like Tele kinetic in and You know mind reading magic at this point like she. The these are the two characters left at the end of the novel that need to be taken care of and so she is making her way there and so she doesn't get all the way there she gets like to the road and they are coming toward the town and so that's where they meet. But i i as far as i know you know and again that's kind of the thing about the page..

"We just don't have clarity on. And that's kind of stephen king do be like i don't know i you know it anyway. They do it. And it's written this really great way where everyone votes. And then there's a tie between another couple and then carrie and tommy And then there's a revote there's a runoff in carry. No something bad is going to happen. She tells tommy. Don't vote for us. Do not vote for us and he does it anyway and they win by one. vote you know so like oh disaster. It's so good so well done of like disastrous diverted and then you know tragedies coming by they up on stage Chris come she pulls the bucket. The the blood comes down gets all over. Carry gets all over tommy. The bucket falls clocks. Tommy in the head and kills him. Yeah and we get this beautiful. This is also very keen gin of pages about the end of his life He's conked on the head. He falls down tells us a little bit about the context. And then we get this great line where it's like by the time that the building caught fire. Tommy was already dead or something like that. Yes great stuff but yeah so so carry gets doused blood runs outside and then kind of comes back and locks all the doors And then Sets off the sprinklers and then seized power lines and then Breaks power lines and the makes everyone in the thing get electrocuted in that causes of fire. It's the band's equipment right. The band is playing prom night. Yeah it's a really e- lake cool moment. I mean there's there's a reason this win win. The diploma film comes around. There's a reason that this becomes like the iconic scene because it is iconic. It's just like such a such a stark image of the prom. King and queen on the stage promise happening normally and been the blood falls and all like all of these sort of things that are deeply embedded in the american psyche. About like prom in prom king and prom queen and so on and so forth Yet like just run through.

"No i think we're basically covered And then prom is like. It's like literally splits in two halves prom and then prom night itself Imprompt itself is but made event. The thing that everyone is here for and it delivers in spades yet it it starts with a A what you call well. I guess there's a little bit earlier. But it kind of comes to fruition here. Tommy picks up kerry from her house. Note that kind of thing the way that scene is written when she's waiting for him and thinks he's not gonna come 'cause she thinks you know. A prank is being pulled on over on her break as being pulled over on her. And i think that's right but She thinks she's being pranked That is some of the best writing. Stephen king has ever done. Yes no so. This is to touch again on the discussion. Having with my partner this is the precise moment after. I read the beginning of the book and be disgusted right back to the locker room scene. I then went to the scene. And i was like. Here's how is treated by the you know. Middle of the novel like so tender so close to her to her mind and her fears and her anxiety. And you know the the the tommy shows up. And he pins her his corsage on her and everything and he says you know you look beautiful and then the narrative voice says she was. Yeah right. yeah which you can call that corny but like it is this moment of validation for this character who has received nine there. There's like this double thing happening here right or one. It's like a like nineteen ninety s. She's taken off her glasses and she's hot now. You know that kind of thing that's going on. And she does her own dress right and all this kind of stuff but then this is on one fifty seven a king rights. She felt actually physically miserable life. To a point that might be an end or the beginning of a widening beam And like that. That is Stephen king doesn't get better than that like that. The the full encapsulation of her as as a character like the whole thing crammed into like a sentence fragment basically and in you get all these tinder moments right Like you're just talking about that. That scene you all of that. In the knits immediately blown to shit. I'm literally exploded Yeah but by the prompting. Yeah so this in one way of thinking about this novel is that it's just an e. c horror comic writ large. yeah right because ec horror comics If you're not familiar with these are the comics that give rise to tales from the crypt Which becomes an hbo series in the ninety s And i think that's how most people encounter it but these are Comics that king was reading when he was very small and Clearly had a lot of impact on his development But those stories usually work is there..

"He loves like human mass right well in the so Touching on sort of the way that. This novel generates empathy rate. So we already talked about how it starts out with. Kerry kerry is not treated well by the by the authorities voice at the beginning. And in fact there's like this little bit where she Uses her like. She's walking home from school after this first bullying. We're not the first bullying but like the one that opens the novel in the in the girls locker room. She is walking down the street and like a little like little snot nosed kid on a bike like makes fun of her right. This is how much everyone hates carey. Is that even like the eight year. Old boy on the bike is going to make fun of her. And then she pushes him off with her mind With in like in just like a very mean little way right is presented very mean lay. And then she comes home and then you meet her mom and your entire relationship to carry changes and even with the mom like the more you learn about margaret. You don't necessarily become very sympathetic to her. But you understand what produced her which is kind of this Combination of Like religion and just the absolute terror of the things in her life How those sort of like work together. So we've earned talked about kris harkinson. The mean girl. And this is the girl who You know orchestrates the plot on the very famous plot To poor pig's blood on kerry at prom after she has been elected prom queen Which of course is like this. Big symbolic com callback to the incident. The opens the novel carry menstruating and all the other girls like laughing at her in throwing sanitary napkins and things like that. I have never put that together. Oh yeah like not even once in my life. I've thought about the fact that obviously these things related we you learn something every day right well so that happens right and we get sue snell kind of like the good popular girl we get kind of her interior already Which is her. Realizing the horrors of conformity. We we get along kind of digression from her porn at point of view where she's thinking about her boyfriend Tommy and how like you know basically. She's she realizes. Like oh. I'm probably going to marry this guy and what's my life. Look like from this point forward and she sees herself like marrying him and moving into a subdivision and this is weird. I'm sure you noticed this Like this the inward gets dropped very casually as she imagines Fighting against like a bussing in the school system Which is just something to know. It's it's very weird. That lake Sue is imagining what her adult life is going to be like. And she's like well. I guess i'm just going to be racist. Yeah i mean there. There is a especially in the first half of this novel. A real both criticism and like generic criticism but but a visceral kind of hatred of white suburban america. May you know what i mean like. That's on page on page fifty six. It says quote Talking about talking about sue quote. There was a couple like them in every white suburban high school in america Yeah yeah so. Sue s she realizes like she sees herself conforming to this bullying of and she realizes oh crap like this is not who i want to be and yet i have set myself up with this very predictable Conforming lifestyle and so kind of to make amends. She gets her boyfriend to ask. Carrie to prom right she thinks. Wouldn't it be nice if kerry could have a night where she felt like she was being included..

"Who's a like a chew on You know that very the the the character in the mist who who's to Is is a big one but right you get the sense Kind of immediately here. And i think we'll get the sense over all stephen king smokes doesn't really care much for evangelical christianity And is very much responding to like the the post Nineteen seventies. I guess Kind of Expansion of the religious right wing yet in the united states. Eventually that leads all the way to like dick cheney basically being a villain in under the dome right in like in manipulating kind of religious people in that way but but yes i mean. She's just she's abusive She is locking carry in the closet. She's beating her It's this totalitarian household. And you get the sense that her father was the same way before he died In india i mean the i one hundred percents agree with this kind of move that you're making between a scene kerry as she seen and then a seeing kerry or having some interior already on carry and how she feels Because i think the key that carry is you know I think it's very easy to have empathy for kerry toward the end of the book And i think that's actually why this book works. So well why when she murders everyone in her high school With like you know a problem. It's like objectively like it's not a great thing to do No that's that's The just king things stance on the issue it's bad don't yet But but you one hundred percent see how you get there like like stephen king gives a so much interior already on both the people who are torturing her the way that they see her the kind of explicit torture that she receives at home and then her response to it She there's a line somewhere. Yeah she this is kind of in the middle of the book and she is kind of being acceptable. Bit more by is it. Soo yasukazu as roma's girlfriend. So we'll talk about them in just a second. But she's she's kind of being on the receiving end of like some niceness from her teacher from this woman soothes girl sue Tommy her boyfriend all this kind of stuff and she's talking to her mother about trying to go to prom and she says i want to try to be a whole person And basically she saying you know. I've been religiously sheltered in part of why carry gets bored and you know she's bullied. She's abused by her. Her classmates part of the reason for that is that kerry is going to school and just kind of repeating a lotta the religious fanaticism. And there's some kind of.

"Perspective of almost the world or a city right where you're seeing all these different pieces of the thing at one time and It's it's pretty unique to him and not a lot of other people right in that way. Know other people have the confidence. I think to write in that way And so are seeing this kind of pro version of that in carried by moving around from these different things so we Some of the excerpts that we see some of them are newspaper clippings like you say but some of them were like like popular press books. You know like imagine you would like a true crime or a true crime book. A nonfiction book. They're like those. But for the kerry white incident the happen in so it's not even just like different perspectives on its its investigative reporting. It's people with like certain ideologies and certain beliefs. They want us to know that. T k or telekinesis is real and so these are almost like conspiracy theory books that you're reading about it to some some extent we get a lot of what's called the white commission which is like a state commission that is created in order to figure out what happened and so it is after the fact interviews with people who survived. And so it's not like you said it's all dramatic irony but it's dramatic irony from very particular perspectives And it's clear that like all these people have different things they want you to believe and so part of the work of reading. The novel is trying to figure out. Like gosh i know something is happening is going to happen but i have no idea what it could be because all of these people have different opinions and perspectives on it. So it's this really. I mean it really does have this kind of page turner Effect to it of like a like you know from what's happening in the book that something bad's going to happen and if you have any awareness of carry as a phenomenon. The brian depalma film the remakes. That have happened all that kind of stuff. Just stephen king in general in the culture. You know kind of what's going to happen with kerry but i'll be honest right. Read the book before. I've seen the films i aware of as a plotline. I still was page turning to see what happened next. I think that's a really kind of special way of of approaching the thing One additional thing it. It's very much like not a standard novelist kind of move. I mean this is something. This kind of Novel that's put together in this way is something right..

"And it should be girlies because kerry is not the ones that's over thousand pages. Long carey is the story of carrie. White a teenage outcast in one thousand nine hundred seventies main She turns out to be tele kinetic she comes from a context of where she has been abused not only by her peers but by her own mother her entire life and she is kind of a simmering little pot of rage meanwhile there are machinations happening among her classmates to get her into prom Some for good reasons. And then there was also a kind of counter-plots to embarrass her horribly. At prom and win. This happens a she ends up. unleashing her telekinesis powers on the entire town in lake. Kills four hundred people in blows a bunch of stuff up. that's it. That's what happens in the novel. Closer on this thing right. Good at the only i but but yeah i mean yeah that is a. There's a is going to be a whole lot harder when we get to the stanton but yeah i think that's an accurate summary of the book and what is interesting about it or about the w- how that plays out is how the story is told I think this gets called. I was reading a little bit about it gets called in a pistol. Larry novel Quite often and i want to know what you thought about that. Michael because the word epistolary right usually gets gets vote in books that are written as letters. Write a pixels quite quite literally In the kind of historical context of that Or of a perspective shifting back and forth between one or more parties. That's kinda what's happening here and that's kind of not not what's happening here right. I mean what what do you think about the way that this book is. Yeah no so. It's fascinating that it gets called an epistolary novel as you say at this leary. Novels are novels that take place as letters like letters being written back and forth by parties but while carey has said of this there are some legitimate actual letters documents and things that that show up as texts. There are parts of this novel. That are Just straightforward prose right third person descriptions of events that are happening in real time So it's actually this weird combination of like regular novel listrik discourse and the epistolary novel In some of the reason for this is that I know like heading. Read all of these stephen king things and read biographies and so on and so forth This started as a short story as straightforward short story and as king was working on it It got kind of longer and longer there is more to it And he at some point tried to throw it away his wife. Tabitha of who i think will be kind of recurring character in our commentary because she of course shows up in stephen king's life to support an she's got her own books and She fishes these manuscript pages out of the trash reads them over. Thinks they're pretty good and tells king like you you could have something here and so kind of her her urging. He writes this novel or well. He tries to write it. It becomes novella which is a shorter version of a novel. And even harder to sell at the at this point king has written..
