"Little excited into keep going for that reason so i was inspired by thomas's skill with humorous descriptions of people that he met him humorous descriptions of like the discombobulated nature of bureaucracy. Even when death is on the table there were times where i would laugh reading thomas's writing and i thought oh like you know maybe i can kind of get a little of that sensitive of levity into my own writing here in there as a way of propelling the reader forward and keeping just a range of emotions in what is primarily a very depressing broken subject. Thank you yeah. That was actually something that stood out to me. When i was reading. I think your point about just the innate humanity in humor is so true. And i definitely appreciated that in the book. And then just sort of look forward in your epilogue you mentioned trump's appointment of neil gorsuch and brad kavanagh to the supreme court and even after you know. The book is out the arrival of eighty conybeare. It has further solidified. The courts conservative majority but then on the other hand we have biden who ran and won on the most progressive criminal justice class forum. We've seen so. How do you think this tension. Between biden's progressive agenda and the newly conservative supreme court will play out in legislative and judicial arenas in the coming months and years particularly in terms of the death penalty and other sentencing issues. We know it's interesting. I i wrote a proposal and went to publishers to try to make this book happen About five years ago and at the time trump was running for president but at least in these publishing circles there was an assumption that hillary clinton was gonna win and so often people asked about the book. What do you expect to happen under president. Hillary clinton right naive time in early thousand sixteen and there was a moment back then when it seemed like perhaps the supreme court would aid ruled that the death penalty violated the constitution. There was five members of the court where there was at least some chance that they might come to that decision together. In defense lawyers were debating What case do we bring the court. How do we bring the case And then trump was elected and trump has completely reshaped. The supreme court is at three appointments all conservatives who've shown that they support the death penalty broadly speaking and are unlikely to do something big dramatic. I mean they. They still will actually rule in both directions. There are cases where even neal gorsuch has ruled in favor of death. Row prisoners on individual small.

"Writing for justice fellowship hairs writing mentors like myself with people who are writing about the system many of whom have direct experience in many people direct experience or now out of prison so they can talk on the phone meet in person but the mentor but for thomas's case and also another fellow in washington state that i also worked with is remain who are currently in prison and that really restricted. Our ability to communicate. It was very difficult if impossible to get on the phone with them. And so we were primarily communicating through letters in. That meant that you know. Things took a very long time to get back and forth sometimes even have used coded language because he was concerned about on the censors at the prison intercepting and maybe blocking a letter in either direction from going through or if not blocking it you know sitting on it for so long that the advices moot by the time he actually gets the letter for me. I was able to need him in person. One time i was able to visit him he's no longer on death row. He's in a general population prison. And i was able to go A few hours with him speaking to him as a visitor. It was an interesting experience for me. Because i had only ever entered prisons as a formal journalist doing an interview whereas this was i was on his list of essentially you know family members friends and was going in and treated by the guards a lot less than nicely because they didn't realize that i was a journalist. And if they knew i was writing about a prison i think that they may be on better behavior. But there was a kind of gruffness than i kind of like. You don't matter feeling. I felt comparatively as i went to visit thomas. We spoke for a few hours and has really rich conversations. At least i found them very rich about how to present his story. Because thomas was a phenomenal writer And like you so good at spinning a yarn..

"America just to give some context for listeners. Right now we have applications open for our writing justice fellowship which commissions writers both with and without justice involvement to write about critical issues. Connected to mass incarceration. So just i as a writer in this field yourself. Can you offer us any insight on the kind of power you think. Writers have to influence larger criminal justice debate and to make change in the field and then specifically how did you think about your books own impact as you were writing it and did you make any creative choices specifically tailored to your audience in mind the when i would tell people that i was working on this book people who i may be met at a party or people who had no connection to criminal justice or the death penalty one of the reactions. I got more than any other was. Oh have you seen the movie versi. Have you read the book. Just mercy way bryan stevenson. Right which is this incredible book and film about his career as a defense lawyer in death. Penalty cases and the primary narrative is about his efforts to free innocent man from death row in alabama. And what i realized from that books fame was that we can hear statistics all day. But it's not until some story kind of gets lodged in our head that we come to care about some of these issues and think about them in a richer way and it's the storytelling that gets us there. That takes the kind of messiness of the world the fact that the world is just full of facts and kind of shapes those facts into a clear line of this happened and then this happened in. This is the meaning of that stream of chain reactions in events in the world You know how police do their job in case how. The defense lawyers did their job. A case what stories got told in.

"How do we include the victims and all of their complexity and perspective than reactions in the process of justice though victims play really interesting role in the criminal justice system because for many years the system would save you know that had any particular case it was the state of texas versus severance out of the state of new york so and so and the victims didn't have role in that it was the state that was prosecuting and trying to punish people who committed crimes. No matter who the victim was in the eighties and nineties there was a rise of what's called the victim's rights movement and this was victims who kind of organized politically generally around more punitive criminal. Justice policies generally around sending people to prison for longer. They tend to be supportive of the death penalty and they held a lot of sway. If you're running for mayor or council member in a city like houston or philadelphia. You really need the victim's rights immunity in that town to support you in the way you've got from to support you by saying i'm going to use the death penalty more often and that was the assumption i had about the world victims going into the book research. You know early on. I did interview a woman who witnessed an of a man who had killed her brother and sister and she said that it was incredibly healing experience for her and her parents that she wouldn't have traded it and she feels generally good how to witnessed it that with. I think my expectations. But then as i got deeper into the research i realized that it wasn't monolithic. And that he was if anything navy exception and many many family members of victims. I should step back and say i don't think she's an exception..

"That's not to say that he shouldn't go to prison. She wasn't trying to convince the jury of that. She was just trying to convince them to spare his life and the lawyer in this case heated and he is still in prison now. And i saw matt story in many similar ones about you know the death penalty being beaten at trial and approach. It doesn't have to be limited to the death penalty. Of course it's expensive to mount one of these big investigations. You probably couldn't see that happening for every murder not to speak of every kind of armed robbery right but you can see the way that looking into the life circumstances if people the picture swings of history policy that shaped their lives the failure to treat mental health problems the addiction issues Brain injuries sort of all of these. Different things can shake someone's life on the past to crime and if society spends more time learning those stories and trying to understand that they might see people as more capable of redemption and rehabilitation and the outcome of that can be at least individual cases in a shorter prison sentences or prison sentences. That don't send them away for the rest of their lives. That say this person did something awful. We don't want them on the streets tomorrow. But we also don't want to completely close the door through the idea that they can find you know mercy and redemption and rehabilitation in prison. Thank you so much and earlier you talked about. You know you work in sort of more local journalism the texas tribune in the marshall project which is obviously more national. And you also in your book touch upon the impact of local and national news on public sentiment around the death penalty. So how do you think that the decline of local news in journalism which is really a hot topic right now. because it's been industry abated by covid. nineteen. I don't think that decline will affect the trajectory of the death penalty and of public sentiment towards it so i think that the decline of newspapers throughout the country is generally just bad for our collective conversation about public policy in criminal justice..

"That you could do a book that was about that big picture embrace but going all the way back to that texas after violence project experience. I also saw that. You could tell that story through the individual experiences of people so this is all very long winded way of describing the past to the book but at every turn. Everything's kind of been interconnected. Thank you so much. That was awesome. And i'm a big fan of the marshall project so again this is sort of an honor for me to be interviewed. But you touched upon this in your answer and you talk a lot about this in the book. Talk about how. The death penalty is sort of a symbol of our country's tendency towards retribution and punishment to quote you. It makes very long. Prison sentences appeared lenient by comparison. But then you also talked about how initially for you and for many the death penalty can sort of be a stand alone and aloof issue. So my question is how does addressing the death penalty impact other areas of reform for example. How do you think that the abolition of capital punishment might quick efforts for a sentence reduction or other types of sentencing reform. Really great question. And when i i was conceiving of the book i wanted it to speak to larger criminal justice system. I didn't want to feel like it was about this one punishment in this one st in the book focuses on texas the texas death penalty can feel very exotic to somebody living in new york or idaho. Places maybe don't have the death penalty. You're don't have it. Used as often texas can just seem like this outlier by texas played this role in american criminal justice where we were this symbol of a punitive approach to crime. There was a review of my book where they said texas to america what america is to the rest of the world. You know this sort of place that we looked to for these impulses or one part of our impulses in texas becomes a symbol for a really harsh punitive approach to crime now as the death penalty has disappeared..

"These issues have been founded by a longtime defense attorney named walter long and at the time i came in. It was young and i spent a year Driving around texas interviewing people connected in some way to the death penalty. These were family members of people who had been executed family members of people who had been murdered in death penalty cases lawyers. I even interviewed a woman who ran a house in huntsville. Texas where people would stay when they were Visiting town to witness execution so just this incredible range of people and it made me see the death penalty which until then had been a abstract issue for me one that was very compelling because it was so dramatic it was something people seem to fight about a lot but it made it less of an obstruction more. Just a in people's lives and one. Vic touched a stunning number of people. Far more than i would have ever expected. So i spent that year doing those interviews transcribing them working with the university of texas to archive them. There was this whole idea that we were building. A kind of archives for posterity whites called the texas after violence projects building towards a world in which we can understand better that causes. The violence have prevented poet touches people's lives and at the same time i was realizing that personal storytelling was a way for people who knew nothing about a particular public policy area whether criminal justice or anything else to get to know the way these policies really affect people's lives and it was outweigh into understanding policy understanding the world around us That was very intimate. Like you could reach a lot of people at one time to sort of have a collective conversation about these really difficult questions in that appealed to me you know. More than approaching it. As an academic or apologised store you know these other ways that navy one can get into scholarly work about these questions and you know i read magazines. I was reading texas monthly. The worker in these word of the things. I would just read for fun and i realize wait a minute. Journalists are the ones who get to kind of skip from subject to subject to learn about them and then communicate with a wide audience about what they've learned and guide the collective conversation raw having about things like the death penalty in criminal justice so i decided to become a journalist and i intern at a few different in small news outlets. I didn't get a journalism degree but there were a few opportunities in in texas also in egypt toilet for a little while to just turn it newspapers and get to know how you do this work. And because i already knew a little bit about the death penalty having worked taxes after violence project. Just that little bit of extra knowledge about the law about politics of it meant that i was realizing that i could pitch stories about death. Penalty cases that were more unique in that might be interesting to editors so i was interning for about a year. The texas tribune a nonprofit. Here in austin and i was finding about cases of people who are going to be executed. I was talking to their lawyers learning about the issues in those cases and then thinking oh in addition to writing about this one man who is facing the death penalty facing execution. I can also explain that for example. His interrogation when he was first interrogated for the crime was never accorded and so if he was interrogated in such a way that he gave a false confession in. He's really innocent of this crime. We don't know and prints out the texas legislature is debating a bill that would require interrogation recording in all cases..

We went to Kevin Daily own now he crashed and burned in that election, but he is now A City Council member in Los Angeles, and he's been itching to get back into a larger seat.

There's some names that are conservative Democrats who would never be picked by the establishment of the party. Like Gloria Romero.

I'm going to spend $500 Million to maybe stick it to Newsome and Either replacement candidate in California. So what do you think the point I'm making here Is on first blush. You're going to hear in the news. Everyone's united behind Gavin Newsom. And they're all going to say no on recall, they're gonna suggest that no candidate should run to be the replacement. Yeah, They said that for a few weeks with Gray Davis and you saw how that turned out. Ambition, ego. Personal conflicts. Um, wings of the party. All of that will come to play and there will be a pretty significant field of Democrats. That's my prediction. Coming up recalls, are now starting to be talked about for local elected officials.

Everyone in California talking about today and now nationwide is the recall movement against Governor Governor Gavin Newsom. Over the weekend. We got word of 1.3 million signatures is the current tally, according to recall organizer's 1.3 million signatures. That means that they're on a pace of about 100,000 week. They need to get to at least 1.5 million quality signatures. But in order to know that they got the signatures, they've got to get two million. Two million signatures. Let's see 100,000 per week and we've got seven weeks left where at one point yet it's very going toe to be very close. But we have to keep the pace we're on. Get to the two million so 1.3 million signatures was the big announcement this weekend. They need two million signatures that would require about 100,000 signatures each and every week through March, 17th. Which is the deadline to submit them, But for you and me to collect them were probably really looking at March. Mm 8/9 or 10th. To submit them to the campaign so they could be properly reviewed, vetted, processed and submitted to each of the county registrars of voters. Now there's also been big developments over the weekend in terms of candidates getting in the race. We had John Cox on this show on Thursday of last week. Well, on Saturday, he announced it's official. He's running for Governor, John Cox ran in 2018. He was the Republican nominee. Um And he said he's running because Newsome is really that bad, and he's learned a lot about how to run races from his last race. Also right wing activist Mike Son of Bitch who has a big following on Twitter announced today that he is also going to file papers to run for governor if the recall qualifies. Kevin Fucker is still saying he's looking at it. But his team said he raised a million dollars $1 million and he put out a tweet saying this is a movement. Really a million dollars. Well, what he doesn't tell you is that the million dollars came from 13 fat cat donors. Kevin That's not a movement.

By the recall committees now In a in a sign that Gavin Newsom is taking this recall threat much more seriously. He's not only beginning to cave on important policies like the State Home Warner, or last week, he was indicating. Very big shift is coming on his decision to back government teachers unions to force kids to stay home and keep the school shut. But now we're seeing actual money being spent against the union. I'm sorry against the recall The National Union of Health Care Workers today rolled out a digital media campaign where it is running ads asking thousands of Californians to sign a petition opposing the ouster effort. Uh, the funding of these ads not only designed to dissuade people from signing, but they're also Reinforcing that If you signed their petition, they can get your name off of the recall paperwork in case you signed as some a mistake in case you were confused. Not a whole lot of people are gonna be confused. But what you're going to find, though, is that the unions and Newsome are now going to start pushing counter signatures. They're called withdrawal forms. Under California state law, someone who signs recall paperwork can take their name off of the recall petition after it's been submitted to the state. By signing a roux withdrawal petition. Why would you sign a petition to recall a state official and then turn around and sign a withdrawal? Well, yeah, you could change your mind. But what Newsom in the government unions and Democrats are banking on Is that people may be confused. They may not know what they're signing. So, for example. The National Union of Health Care Workers Campaign. Is emphasizing not the recall of Newsome. They're saying signed the petition because quote Now is not the time. To move Caliph Now is the time to move California on Medicare for all You see what they're doing? There is they're trying to make Medicare for all the issue, which is among some voters popular, even some Democrats popular They may not know what, exactly what they're signing. So what you're finding now is a funded effort by Newsom. You try to thwart the recall effort here in California as the final days now rollout Aziz the recall efforts trying to get an additional 700,000 signatures to get the 1.5 million Final point on the recall effort. Announcement by Reform California The group that I chair The ads. Have started running today paid ads promoting the recall petition. You actually may start seeing them on some websites, particularly sites that carry news and sports information. We are trying to get his many people to sign the recall. Paperwork is possible. So we've put Paid adds up Now why are we doing it on news sites? We prefer Facebook, but Facebook has rejected our ads to support the recall of Gavin Newsom. We have lodged a complaint. We've appealed their decision. Thus far there, quote Unquote Independent Review board has not made a decision. They have not changed their policy. Facebook is not allowing us to run ads. So we are trying to get them up by running them on new sites. What can you do to help? You can get involved in the effort. Do not sit on the sidelines.

"A Dyson sphere? That's right. Yes. So the Dyson sphere, Daniel. So this is the idea that you know we could maybe built something. That can really take advantage of all that amazing power that's coming out of the sun. Right? That's right. If you think about, like grabbing solar power, and you think well, we might need a huge amount of it for your first instinct is like Let's just put a bunch of solar panels in the desert. Right. Let's just like Bill's a solar panel after solar panel after all, nobody's really using that land. It's a lot of sun out there, right. But as humanity gets more more greedy about energy you might think like, is there enough room on Earth to put enough solar panels right there? Where is that? True? Like? What if we covered all of the Sahara Desert in solar panels? Would that not be enough? I think that would be enough today. Like actually, I think Today. All you need to do is cover like Delaware with solar panels. And you have enough energy to power the entire United States or maybe even the Earth. What Really? Yeah. Exactly. Solar bad soldier. You were just ready to Delaware. He needs Delaware. That's where all those fake companies are set up, aren't they? We probably have listeners in Delaware. So you might want to check with them before you're giving might appreciate the shade. You know, it might appreciate being relocated. Sorry. We have authority here from Jorge Chammah podcast host and we're gonna raise your health but filler pages that men and eminent podcast main through being moved out of Delaware. Well, I just checked the numbers, and it turns out Delaware's actually a bit too small. I think you need to add Maryland to hope that's okay with Maryland. No, but the point is that I think today human civilization can survive. Using energy captured by a pretty small fraction of earth's surface. But imagine in the future, right? What if we want to build a huge civilization? What we want to construct enormous things We want to send ships across the stars were to need incredible amounts of energy. And, you know, we're not gonna be able to burn coal to do that. And we're not gonna be able to necessarily cover the earth and solar panels. And so people started thinking big people started thinking. What's the limit? Like? What's the maximum number of solar panels? Solar panels you could make? What's the biggest solar panel you can build? Yes, exactly. And where would you put it? Okay, So this is where the question of what is the Dyson Sphere country? Exactly? Is that? Not a thought experiment by Freeman Dyson, a famous physicist to think about what is the biggest solar panel. Is it possible? Could we build one? How would you do it? And could we see if other civilizations air doing it? Wow, that's amazing. Right. So we as usual, we're wondering how many of you out there actually knew what a Dyson sphere was like If someone approached you on the street and ask you Hey, Have you seen any Dyson spheres or Hey, do you know what it is? Or would you contribute $10 towards building a Dyson? Sphere says you show, Daniel went out into the streets and asked people randomly out there. They knew what a Dyson sphere was. Yeah, Here's what people had to say. Have you ever heard of the thing called the Dyson Sphere?.

The task force was not unanimous in the recommendation, with some CDC officials calling it reckless. I'm Michael cast another updates on travel restrictions today so U. S officials now being restricted by China from traveling to Hong Kong after similar measures were imposed on Chinese individuals by Washington. China's Foreign Ministry has announced that U. S diplomatic passport holders visiting Hong Kong and nearby Macau will temporarily no longer receive visa entry privileges, these restrictions or what China's Foreign Ministry spokesman described as well. Typical sanctions. The reference is most likely to US sanctions that bar certain Chinese and Hong Kong officials from traveling to the U. S. Theo US band targeted those who had a role in imposing and crack down on free speech on opposition political activity in Hong Kong. China sees US actions as an attempt to interfere in China's internal affairs and undermine China's core interests. I'm Karyn Chammah.

The exhibit lives bound together. Slavery at George Washington's Mount Vernon gives visitors a new understanding of the lived experiences of the enslaved people and how intertwined their lives were with Washington's. The massive glass entrance is emblazoned with their names and a bust of America's first president is visible directly. We threw it, Susan show Where is the senior curator of the exhibit? You see Washington through the names of this community that surrounded him and arguably What Washington accomplished relied upon what they did on it every day basis. At the south end of the property shrouded by tall trees is the slave cemetery. It is my absolute favorite spot. Brenda Parker says.
