"What did your Marine Corps career take you? I had really four tours in the Marine Corps. My first one was in camp lejeune, North Carolina, which is Jacksonville, north of Wilmington.

Activists Push to Block the Release of Nashville Shooter's Manifesto
"This headline over from The New York Times over the Nashville shooting. What we know about the Nashville school shooting over The New York Times. This is an actual headline quote investigators were still searching for a motive in the killing of 6 people at the covenant school. Now it's been widely reported that the killer was very specific in why the killing occurred. She had a manifesto. She wrote it all out. She told a friend, apparently in text messages, it'll all be very clear why I did what I did in my manifesto. Do you know they still haven't released the manifesto? There are activists who don't want the manifesto released, and I wonder why. Why would people not want to know what the killer's motive was? When that monster dylann roof murdered all those beautiful church goers at mother Emmanuel church in Charleston, South Carolina. It was very evident and it became very clear he was a disgusting, vile, evil, racist, who wanted to murder black people. And no one had any aversion to recognizing the evil that he was. Why are we unwilling to recognize the evil of somebody who targets a Christian church and school, and yes, there is a church there. That's been completely disregarded by the media. This is not a school shooting. It's a church, it's a church shooting too.

Nikki Haley to formally launch GOP campaign for White House
"Republican Nikki Haley plans to formally announce her 2024 presidential campaign today taking on Donald Trump. Nikki Haley, a former South Carolina governor and UN ambassador released a video yesterday declaring her candidacy. Republicans have lost the popular vote in 7 out of the last 8 presidential elections. That has to change. Today's event in Charleston marks the first time Hailey will appear in public as a declared White House hopeful. Her home state holds a critical early primary that influences the fate of the GOP nomination. Haley is the first major Republican to officially challenge Donald Trump, but she'll hardly be the last Florida governor Ron DeSantis, former vice president Mike Pence and former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo are among those expected to launch campaigns and Haley's fellow south carolinian senator Jim Scott is also weighing a bid.

Haley faces 'high-wire act' in 2024 bid against Trump
"Nikki Haley faces a high wire act in her 2024 bid against Donald Trump. The first woman and person of color elected as South Carolina's governor, Nikki Haley loves to remind people she has never lost a campaign. On Wednesday in Charleston, she is poised to become the first Republican to go up against former president Donald Trump in seeking the presidential nomination. The announcement will be followed by visits to New Hampshire and Iowa, critics say she'll be tested back in 2016, Hailey said she was embarrassed by Trump and his reluctance to condemn white supremacists, but she joined his cabinet as a UN ambassador, and her public support for Trump continued even after the attack on the capitol. Supporters say she's a savvy executive who's been a regularly underestimated by opponents, and her background as the daughter of Indian immigrants makes her the perfect candidate. She's not expected to stand alone in the ring for long, after the midterm elections a wave of high profile Republicans began to openly weigh 2024 bids against Trump, including South Carolina U.S. senator Tim Scott, Florida governor Ron DeSantis, and former vice president Mike Pence.

Chick-fil-A Embraces Wokeness With Cauliflower Sandwich
"And Chick-fil-A started down that path of wokeness. Now, this is going to sound silly. But this is part of the culture now. So you always know when someone's about to go, woke, because they drop little nuggets along the way, and they're not delicious Chick-fil-A nuggets. These are nasty little woke nuggets. And now we know that Chick-fil-A has fully embraced their wokeness, and they have done this by changing up their menu. And I know this trust me on this folks, this sounds innocuous, but in the great scheme of things, Chick-fil-A headquarters is basically signaling to all of us. So Chick-fil-A, if you haven't heard the news and we have the story up on our website. The headline, the lord's bird has become the anti chicken. Chick-fil-A now testing a new plant based entree. It's basically a slab of breaded cauliflower, tucked between two hot buttered buttons and garnished with pickles. It's called the Chick-fil-A cauliflower sandwich. Chick-fil-A says their meat sandwich is the perfect centerpiece for their plant forward menu. And they're apparently testing this in Denver and also Charleston, South Carolina, and North Carolina. So any of you people out there who have actually tried this, I'd like to hear from you. Chick-fil-A has released a statement quote cauliflower is the hero of our new sandwich. It was inspired by our original Chick-fil-A sandwich. The sandwich is apparently so bad ladies and gentlemen that Chick-fil-A cows are picketing stores with signs. That read eat somewhere else. And the somewhere is built, because the cows can't read. That's the whole that's the shtick, right? Eat more chicken. Okay, never mind.

Kimberly Fletcher Describes the Challenges Faced by School Board Moms
"A very interesting story because it involves potentially three different agencies. The Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Department of Justice, and the Department of Education, which we don't talk about a lot, which is this guy Miguel cardona, and it seems to be the evidence suggests and we'll get a definitive answer as Congress starts to do their job. That the national school board association, a non government organization, lobbied the Biden administration, was able to get an audience with three different government agencies that resulted in terrorist type activity. I mean, terrorist threat level activity as if we were dealing with Al-Qaeda having a sleeper cell in Charleston, South Carolina. That sort of law enforcement activity was then a result of the national school board association lobbying our government. Do I have that about right? You do have that right. And here's the really scary part about that is when the federal government comes out with those kind of standards, then all of the law enforcement agencies on the local level act on it. So we have had moms who have been going into the school board meetings who have read from the books that their children are being exposed to, who have addressed real concerns that the school district should be paying attention to. And they're being told that they can't talk about some of these things. Like when they're reading the books, these excerpts. They said, you can't read that because it's public TV, and that's against the FCC standards. You know, to have that on TV. And when the moms keep reading it, then we have had moms who have literally been handcuffed by police officers and taken out of these school board meetings. Who are the terrorists? So when you have the federal government, basically arming or empowering local governments to harass parents. That is a big problem. And

Then it goes over our missile fields in Montana and neighboring states and it ends up exiting in Charleston where a lot of our nuclear submarines are maintained and often forward positioned in being dry dock. It's as though the Chinese design the low sweep and I hear from people that got spy satellites that do that anyway. Mister secretary, back to your CIA days, would you like a 60,000 foot view of what's going on in China? Yes, absolutely. And it is absolutely the case they have satellites. They can get good pictures. I've heard others say you can get a good image for ten bucks. That's also true. But don't just think imaging. Think all kinds of signals collection, detection, work that could likely have been going on that array that I saw and granted. I saw commercial images that array looked very much like a pretty sophisticated tool. And I would love to have had that over our adversary sites, our ability to detect what they were doing when they were doing and how they do it, how they responded to the fact that we were there. All of those things would have been incredibly important in the Chinese Communist Party now. Quite likely knows those things about us. They also know how the Biden administration is going to respond to these kinds of these kinds of probing by them.

Nikki Haley Poised to Enter 2024 Presidential Race
"Now, how insane is it for Nikki Haley to challenge president Trump? Now, according to a report, Nikki Haley is going to announce. On February 15th, the post and courier newspaper out of Charleston is reporting that she's going to make the official announcement that she is going to challenge Donald Trump. And she wants to be the Republican nominee for president. Now, this is an interesting journey because any Republican who declares their candidacy is immediately going to earn the wrath of Trump world. No question. Trump supporters, you know, I think it's fair to say we're a pretty passionate bunch. We get emotional. We're loyal. We're grateful for the four years of the Trump presidency. We've lost count of how many people text the keyword Trump or the keyword more Trump to our MyPillow text line, which is 806 5 5 mic and we send you back the list of the Trump presidency accomplishments. They are enormous. They are profound. We're grateful. Extremely grateful. For what Trump accomplished and millions of Americans see one guy.

So interestingly, anybody, whether it's Ron DeSantis, Chris Christie Mike Pompeo, Mike Pence, Glenn youngkin, I don't know, it could be another crowded field.

"Radio 1000 FM 97 7. You're information station. Pictures of devastation are beginning to emerge from Florida, which has been battered by a destructive and deadly hurricane Ian. Now to the north are getting ready for what's left of the storm, which is once again a hurricane. North Carolina governor Roy Cooper. Today is time for all north carolinians to ready ourselves to stay safe. ABC News meteorologist Melissa Griffin is watching the track of the storm and spoke with northwest news radio's Bill O'Neill. Now the center of the storm appears to be aimed at the South Carolina coast at least according to the most recent forecast, maybe the Charleston area more specifically, what might they expect in comparison to what Florida has seen. Well, they're expecting a category one hurricane in comparison to a very intense major category for hurricane. So I don't think the impacts are going to be as major and as catastrophic as what Southwest Florida saw, but still that can't be taken lightly because Ian's turning over these really warm ocean waters. We saw what happened as it moved into southwest Florida, very warm waters, rapidly intensified the storm to that nearly a category 5 right before landfall. And now because it's going back over those warm waters, it's not as warm as those waters were at the southeast gulf, but still it's giving it that fuel to recharge it back into a category one hurricane and we hope that's all it goes to and not up to a cat too. But even so for a category one, a place like Charleston floods very easily, even with a passing thunderstorm. So what a 7 foot storm surge that they could see there, that could be devastating when it comes to flooding and when it comes to inland flooding because an additional 12 inches of rain is possible on top of that 7 foot storm surge in some of these coastal communities of South Carolina and that's why they are under hurricane warning. So again, we're watching for another impactful storm from hurricane Ian as it becomes a hurricane yet again within the next 12 hours. And as this hurricane parallels the coast, there's a potential for a lot of beech erosion as a kind of churns off the north Florida and Georgia coast. Exactly because it's actually moving parallel from north Florida up into southeast Georgia eventually, of course, making landfall somewhere north of Charleston likely, but we're expecting with those onshore winds from the storm itself. We're expecting storm surge in these areas too from Jacksonville up to Savannah, rough waves, beach erosion along the coast. These coastal areas are getting slammed by Ian over the next 24 hours or so leading up to landfall in South Carolina as it's slowly moved parallel because the whole story with Ian over the last several days have been its slow movement and that's not what you want with any kind of tropical system. No, away from the coast there is also an impact from these storms that people don't tend to think about right away. What are we potentially looking at for inland South Carolina, North Carolina, maybe even portions of West Virginia, Tennessee and Kentucky down the road. Some of these areas could still be intense rain from Ian as it moves inland further. So place like North Carolina much of North Carolina actually is also under a travel to storm warning as well. As it makes landfall tomorrow, so in a rapidly weakened but those tropical storm force wind gusts and that very heavy rain is going to still create a lot of issues for places like North Carolina, even in Virginia, even into western Tennessee, as it diminishes and loses tropical characteristics. It's remnants of what's left of it still are packed with so much moisture, it can drop one, two, three inches per hour rainfall rates, and that is going to cause some pretty intense and potentially catastrophic flooding even well inland from the coast.

"Ben chic, I think, was just very easily at home, I think, kind of having to deal with that variety and she was carving out quite a lot of breakpoint opportunities on the job serve. And I think that was really kind of helping her get that momentum and yeah, picking her moments specifically in that third set where I think is your ball had her chances as well. And I think she was definitely disappointed when it got to the end. There were two, there were two there. But I think she doesn't have to be, I think, disheartened about her performance. I think just Ben chic with her experience and I think given the work ethic, given the yard she has put in with her team, certainly in the build up to Miami. She went out early in Indian Wells. So has been able to kind of work on things and I think yeah, it's just helped her put this kind of run together. And as you said, she came through some very tricky tricksy opponents, Madison keys as well, but dosa and then Alexandria in the semifinals. Yeah, a very, very good run for Belinda bencic. Yeah, quite a lot of different sorts of players that she had to face and come through and her first clay court final actually, which I think is probably quite surprising. I just would have maybe assumed that she'd got to a clay final before, but yeah, just that bit too much more consistency when it came to the third set and she managed to serve out the match to love, which is a nice strong way to finish to finish the match and the tournament. Save championship point on her, I think on her serve in the preceding game, really nice four hand cross court winner, but yeah, it felt like it was the last stand. As you poured in really have enough left to challenge bench itch in that final her final service game. So yeah, we'll see. I mean, we'll see how Ben chic gets on in Europe. I mean, it's hard to, it's hard to know, I feel like with this event, because as I said, it's not, it's not your traditional European red clay. And arguably the fact that it sort of plays like a hardcore given what players have been saying and what we've been reading also in the press over the last week or so. It might have actually helped bench given an obviously she got to the semis on the hard courts in Miami. So it's hard to see whether it's difficult to see whether what this means for bench in terms of her French Open prospects, but she is a player who is very, very wily and experienced and the fact that she's won now on clay grass and hard at this level just shows I think the level that she can play it. And when she's playing with confidence, she can be a very, very tricky customer for the highest ranking players on the tour. Yeah, definitely. We saw that the Olympics last year didn't really and I have to say, I really like the trophies from Charleston this past week. It really nice, like purple and yellow sort of glass, sort of vase esque designs. One of the nicest trophies I've seen in a long time so I mean, I love the tournament Kim. I think it's, I think it's really unique. I know there are some people who dismiss the green clay. Is it fake clay? I don't know. I don't really care to be honest because it's such a unique event, and I sometimes feel we don't have enough sort of unique events. I don't certainly feel like we have enough WTA clay 500s, but yeah, really, really good event. Nice to also see Amanda Anderson mover getting to the semifinals. She had a really good match against sabalenka, the top seeds in the third round and came through that in three sets before defeating coco vandeweghe in the quarterfinals. So a good week for her, as I said, she got a bit undone by the anja bha drop shot and maybe she needs to work a little bit on her mobility and movement. I know she's got quite a tall frame, but it felt like jabor with all the tricks of the trade in that sort of ash party style. I felt bamboozled and it's some over a little bit and as a result, jabal was able to come through that, even though anissa may at times, you just saw, yeah, she's just got which she's got the power and she could marry that power with devastating, accuracy at points, but jabor was still just her consistency just across the three sets sort of just came through just. But nevertheless, a good week for anissa nova. And Alexandria as well on the other side, getting through to the semifinals, making the most I feel of a quite a nice draw, she had Magdalene in the quarters Carolina police cover who's sort of coming her way back from injury as well in the third round. So yeah, good for her for getting to the semis too. Yeah, talking of magda Lynette. She got to the quarters of the singles, but won the doubles with Andrea kleps. So I think that's their first time playing together this week, and they went and won the double. So very nice stuff from them. But yeah, I think I second draw assessment when it comes to this, so maybe it was really nice to see her at sort of deeper stages of a tournament again and she's obviously been heralded for a long time as one of the big ones to watch and obviously former Roland Garros semifinalist on the clay. So we look forward to seeing what she might be able to keep forgetting. I keep forgetting that happened, Kim. It felt like it was so long ago that, yeah, I've almost kind of forgot about her credentials on a clay court. I feel like I'm talking about her more as a threat on a hardcore, but certainly I think, yeah, she's another player who I don't think many people are going to want to face come Europe and the clay swing and ultimately that the French Open. But yeah, it wasn't still not great for Saba lenka. I mean, I think she would have been disappointed with that loss to anisimova as the top seed, but yeah, Anderson over on that day was just playing a little bit better tennis. Kim, I will say though, as much as I do love Charleston and the setup, they have there. Someone does need to speak to the architect of the center court or the main court because the shade situation, the shadow, this court definitely falls into that category of terrible shadowing on the court that really as a fab, what she got on TV was really hard to kind of make it clear between going from the dark to the light back to the dark, to the light, et cetera. Yeah, I want them to work on that. Yeah, there seems to be a number of tournaments where this happens. And it's such a pain trying to watch it and see..

We're sort of getting like the sort of non traditional red European clay events out the way before we can get into it this week. Yeah, and I think I've said this before, but for me, the clay season is all about these like traditional historic European events. And I know that might sound like you're not a fan of the green clay in Charleston. The hard true red surface of Houston. I mean, each to their own. I always find this sort of pre European clay weak, a bit strange. But I mean, I'm just a very traditionalist, I think when it comes to the clay, I didn't like the blue clay in Madrid for a start. But let's not get on to that. But yeah, it'll be weird actually. I've got Monte Carlo or now see will preview Monte Carlo later, but it is strange, knowing that there's no rapper this year, hopefully we'll see him back on the clay later in the spring. But yeah, it's an unusual sensation because him at Monte Carlo is just like meant to be. It's such a historic combination. You just expect it. But hey, we've got Carlos alcaraz, who's broken on the scene, I feel like due to the sunshine double. And we're all excited to see how he gets on in Novak Djokovic's quarter no less. But as you said, we will be looking and diving into that drawer in the second half of the show. We've got lots to talk about before then. And we are going to start in Charleston on the green clay. The biggest event of the last week, the WTA 500 event. And we had to Belinda bencic when her 6th singles title, it was her first clay singles title as well defeating on Jabba in a really, really kind of ebbing and flowing final in three sets, Ben chic won it 6 four in the third. Yeah, this match Kim, it was just full of full of momentum shifts and for someone like bench. I mean, I felt like she just battled through the tournament. I mean, she was quite precariously being close to being dumped out a couple of moments during the tournament, but yeah, she kind of battled her way through the tournament and I think in her own words, is put her season back on track because she did not have the greatest start to the season at the start of the year. No, she didn't. She had COVID and obviously it's affected her in a difficult way when it comes to playing professional tennis as it has with many players. So not the greatest start to her season, but certainly of late, she's really picked it up a notch, got to the semis in Miami. Now, you know, winning a title here. Her first clay title as well. So she's become one of quite a unique group of players to have won. I think this level tournament on clay grass and hard. So it's not for everyone to be able to win titles on all services. But just goes to show she has such quite good variety in her game and is very well suited to transitioning very quickly between different services, although some do say that this sort of green clay plays a bit more like a hardcore than a traditional clay court. So there is that sort of debate, but perhaps it's a good way to go from the hard courts to the clay courts where you've got that sort of in between, which is maybe where Charleston comes into its own. I don't know Joel, but yeah, it was a great final, three sets, bench it, you've all bench coming through, obviously, 6 four in the third. And she had to battle quite a lot this week as well. She had a tight win over dosa as well. And also in her first round against Wang, you know, she was having to go set in a breakdown. Yeah, so it could easily have been very different this week. Yeah, definitely. And I think what was so amazing about it was the fact that she got so far and so deep in Miami last week to the semifinals. I think in an interview after she spoke about the fact that she had only two days to kind of prepare herself for this tournament. So not a lot of time whatsoever. And given, I think, to be honest, she probably would have lost a little bit of confidence given the start she had. She was playing, I think, good tennis, but she was just coming up against players who were just on their day playing slightly better than her. And I think she had lost her. She had lost a cultivate as well. And Anderson over in Australia. So yeah, I think there was some kind of moments where it was sort of quite tough to take and she really needed to, I think, go back to putting the hard yards in with her with her coach and her team and I think it's really been paying dividends since Miami. And I think for her, this is very much been the start of her season and she's going to be a very, I think, difficult kind of opponent, a very combative opponent, a bit like an author to be honest. Going into kind of the European clay swing. I thought both players played very, very, very, very well. I actually think they could have potentially, I think I actually saw a little bit better from both of them in the build up to the final, but at the same time, we all know that on Japan. A very magician sort of player in the sense of she's got a lot of variety, you know, she brought that out in the semifinal and she didn't deal with it that well, particularly does your board drop shot, which I feel has its own fan club..

"It's a pretty fair assessment overall. Yeah it's a little either walk around at night in charleston than i would once certain parts charleston. It's i guess it's the same in new orleans to then. I should walk that back. I think every city. There's a part that you don't really wanna walk around at night. Like columbus says that yet. No you're right but boston has. That new york for sure has at charleston. Did skits bad quickly and sneaky like like you just all sudden like you're like oh this is like well you turn a corner like different. You know not quite like new york city. Does you know clearly. Blocked block can change but is that So with charleston. Is that like a lot of people. Probably find themselves in precarious situations because like isn't like isn't king. Avid is the main. And that's like all the bars and stuff are. Yeah and so if you straight stumble out of a bar and go like two blocks over the wrong way like. I don't think it's quite like that necessarily because it's like a big thing in vegas to is like. Oh yeah you to two streets off like the main strip and it's like i think it's more getting closer like college charleston and then like thinking okay. I'm like on college campus. But it's like as soon as the campus ends is currently just a little iffy you know but it's more what it is This was one of the few times in this episode. Who when there at the waffle house that someone challenges bourdain on his food selection. What gordon wasn't gonna waffle. Oh yeah and that's see. That is a thing that you would think about the houses you know get the waffle but the waffles. Really good at the house. It's my favorite waffle. But just like. It's very similar to like joe rogan. Like any guests. That goes on there. Like there's like a meshing in the personalities where lake joe rogan assays from ridiculous shit and the personal be like. Yeah i don't know or like something like that but the only person or one of the few people that can be like no. You're full of shit. What are we talking about bill burr. Yes like he can go on there and just be like what are we doing. What are you talking about now. it's like chapelle like just one of those equals you know somebody is equal or like higher stature and that's kind of the similar vibe that you get here where it's was like i'm not getting waffle broccoli. Erin saying if you don't get a waffle what are you doing like your unit. So that's kind of cool to see like because you just never really see that now. It's true i didn't even think of that but you're right but and it's not even like a thing where like board games like bothered by it. It's just right nobody else's say and shit you know they're just like okay. Yeah it's just the only people. I think that can do that as like a chef. Focus episode like this. Or like the copenhagen with rene epi so that's offer random notes. Else yeah i really. Don't i mean it's one of those where the episodes really good. But it's kinda like just go watch it man you know. I think i have more to say sometimes when the bad episode the episode..

"I don't know i don't dooms the second one it's the one with the nazis in the they'll kind of nazis see. This is where. I don't know it's the one with the nazis and it's ark of the covenant yet the heart of the company rachel lost ark right at the arc. Yeah i'm trying to think of the name of the third. The one sean connery talking about. I don't know my in the jones movies and the second temple dum because dude rips out the other dudes heart there yeah due to one where he just shoots the guy that's like doing the whip that's the first one that's pretty great odds are very famous scene fourth one. Nobody really talks about how aliens. And they're making a fifth one. Currently is it the crystal skull cap. They're making a fifth one right now. He's over in italy doing it. Because i saw something on talk. It was like him in a golf cart waving everybody in his indiana jones gear. That's pretty cool. How old is harrison ford now. Eighty something. Because i think he broke like another lakers. We broke his foot when he's doing star wars the The latest one that he did He also like he landed his plane on the wrong runway at like san francisco or something crashed a plane. I think in a golf course right. Yeah and then he just broke his arm or something i thought on the set of this movie might have do you know. He was married in one thousand nine hundred sixty four. The first time. I'm been married three times say multiple times but i wouldn't have like that just seems like so. How old was he was b. Nine so seventy nine now. Shit i mean what twenty. Twenty two twenty two when he got married. It's also a really long time ago. Yeah that's the year. The mustang came out. What else random notes. I got from somebody who's never been to charleston. Is it fair to say. And i wrote this down. This is just something. I thought i'd during the episode is it fair to say it's a more accessible version of savannah in a nicer version of new orleans. Somebody who's never been any of those places so i'm completely talking on my ass when you say accessible what he means like easier just easier to get to like savannah. Seems like like i know savannah. Has its own airport. But i'm sure like oh it just seems harder to get to Yeah i think so. I think it's a little more popular than savannah in. It's a little. And i haven't been to savannah in a while but It's definitely a different vibe. I think it's they're they're very different. They're kind of the same but they're all they're very different And then yeah it's it's just cleaner than new orleans. It's obviously smaller. You're not gonna have like. I'm sure there's probably more good restaurants in new orleans because it's a bigger city could be. I mean it's tough to say. That's also subjective. Yeah i don't. I don't know i just i know turkey in the wolf and i don't know any other commander's palace. The famous one famous french horn. Think they like turtle soup Need to go back to new orleans. there's a bunch of new orleans always on like the james beard list for lake the southeast or whatever geographic category finds itself in..

"Thanks. do this is great pretty much. what's going on one else. Year bill murray yep overrated underrated properly rated properly rated. I think his persona and his movies like properly rated okay. I would say slightly overrated for movies or for persona definitely for movies. Because i think when he was blake during the eighties when he was like a really big actor like i remember here. I think it was ghostbusters. Like they don't even know if he was going to do it or not like he said yes didn't sign anything. It was like the first day shooting. They're like i don't know if he's going to be here. He said he was going to do it. Yeah he's still shit like that like he. That's kinda lame. I mean does like show up. He did show up. We'll be like if you know. He like famous for just having an answering machine. You want to get in touch with them. Oh i just. I just meant like if you're going to commit something like let everybody know that for sure like you're committed. Don't you like yeah like a year ago. Then you never never did anything else about you. Know what i mean. We don't know what happened. Maybe there's a contract dispute and he was like. Hey fuck you pay me. That's possible i guess. Yeah but it would make sense because he is that way so it would make sense if that's really what he was like. Oh yeah. I guess i'll do. I'll go in there today. But he this was actually like the first. There's part there's a part when he's in this episode where you actually the stick like is gone. I think it's like when they're at dinner. I was like oh it's bill murray the normal guy. Yeah not bill. Murray lake trying to be all crazy in public in like you know photo bomb somebody or whatever you know what i mean. Yeah do you get some trying to be crazy to do. You think he just just genuinely enjoys fucking with people. I mean it could be that it could just be like. He knows he might just have good camera like our public awareness. When it's like this is what it is expected of him in public and like okay like that's the role that i play to like. I don't know i've never talked to him. Probably never will so. Yeah i know he. This famous stories like someone just standing at an intersection or crosswalk and new york city and he just goes up behind them puts his hands over. There is he's like this. Is bill murray. Nobody will ever believe you and then just walks away like just a fuck with that person. You're gonna have this story of like is not bill. Murray do that and he's a lot. There's a whole documentary on weird shit that he's done. Proudly he a like golf clothing company now. Him and his brother started nail zone. I thought it was like a bar or restaurant on a golf course or something is. He's a really big golfer. Yeah they do. What's the name of it though I don't know i've heard of it like on the road. It's kim in his brother own it because he's they're both like super golf for whatever reason..

"Nobody has anything that they're actually talking about kind of thing. You know what i mean like. It's especially i feel it. Comedy parked a lot of the co comedian ones. I think it's just. It feels very like every episode of same. And you're just kind of like you could like space out in the middle of like for thirty minutes and you pop right back in billingham. Think i missed anything else going on. I think we were just spoiled with good content for so long announced. Like there's so much that it's gotten more down. I guess. I don't know i'm gonna why it's happening like that You're at boiled peanuts. I'd now i don't think so. Really good like the last seen. They're sitting there eating peanuts. And drinking some westbrook brewery beer some white-tie which is their their wheat beer. Just really good. It's got a sour beers. Yeah their servers. Are i think better than the white type at the white tizoc. What they were known for initially. Okay it's like they're big one at first and now i think they're anybody that likes westbrook closer sours remember. What's in there though. That's like a little different. Is it coriander. Maybe that isn't one. 'cause there was like a lemon coriander one that we brought back from nashville. Yeah see because they headed at cork dorks. she's like they're big wine and spirit. Emporium down in nashville. They like to -cations because they have like shit tunnel wine so i got to wander through their house fun yeah coriander orange peel. Lemongrass ginger root. So it's a really good summer beer but you like to of good. Teach the sit. There drinkable six back. Maybe you could. I'm not that guy. I'm not that guy pow not that guy also in that scene did you notice. Data's a really fucked up feet. Yeah because all the traveling and stuff urged genetics or what his feet were jitsu man. Yeah that's probably true. Because his toes look like they were all like ben every which way like one of those like Yet one phone stands and it has like the little prongs and you can bend them whichever way you want you kind of look like that. Also him trying to bait that hook just like gave me flashbacks. I had not fish much in my life. But i hate trying to put something on a hold all because he pokes himself in a moist convinced. Like i'm going to get the hook in my finger and then i'm going to push through the other side of my skin in order to clip it and then pull it back out. It's like I guess it's sort of an irrational fear although it's slightly rational yet it's way harder to do that with live bait. Yeah versus if you're just bayton with like a dead fisher because it's not moving your hand so it's way easier to just like okay. Put it here and then hold it here and then pop through kind of with your with your hands. So i get it i guess. The crabs are eaten all their fish. Which i told us funny somebody would just keep casting the fuck and then realize like after five fish that it's just like cast and right into crap little claw he's like..

Thanks to marry ellen win for a one time gift via pay pow. I really appreciate that as well this week. Charleston south carolina once again finds itself threatened by the british. The decision by south carolina leaders to cut and run from the union was a controversial one. That would divide the state for years. Governor rutledge did not seem to suffer too much political fallout from his decision and continued to remain active in politics. Relish had actually already resigned the governorship in seventeen seventy eight that time he had vetoed the new constitution which he thought was to democratic and the legislature overruled him and he resigned from office but by early seventeen seventy nine. He had returned to office. Despite his offer to the british to just bail out of the war and secede from the union with the rest of the state's rutledge remained in office and remained fairly popular among voters apparently until seventeen eighty when he was forced out by term limits. Even after that rutledge would go on to serve in the continental congress and would later serve on the supreme court including a brief stint as chief justice the british of course we're not done with charleston in seventeen seventy nine as we will see when we get to seventeen eighty in that effort rutledge would be more supportive of a defense of the city not that it helped if you want to read more generally about south carolina in the american revolution in may want to take a look at this week's book recommendation. It's called battleground of freedom. South carolina in the revolution by nat and sam hillborn. This is a relatively short book and just over two hundred pages and it has lots of maps and illustrations in it. It focuses on the military history of the war in south carolina. If that region is of interest to you then this is a good resource. The authors are a husband and wife team who published this book back in nineteen seventy. You can buy the book. And of course i have links to it on amazon or you can just look at it online at archived dot org as always..

"That are shocking. You know we're not going to give away any spoilers here but i will say that Some reading this. We've got this family unit. Monte comes along. He's the lawyer he marries rose He adopts ayla her. Her first child is if allies his own and then they have walker together but as his families being raised. She is very much more drama walker than to her first child ella and she's acting in ways that i'm thinking throughout the book you know normal. Mother would act toward toward their child. And so there's a lot bury their did you And without giving away you know what she does toward ally as the book on foltz. Here can you talk a little bit. Has some of those things. My might drive someone and you may have handed out at a minute ago. It had something to do with her wanting to to not be perceived as less than others but still. Is that enough to to turn away your own child. Well yes oh she so monte You know i've been asked. Whose protagonist in this. And i would answer well monte or i could also say the atkins family is the protagonist in this story. monte is pulled between Is a good man he. Monte is that humble kind of jimmy stewart over achieving regular guy who when faced with challenges does some heroic things. But he's not a superhero but he does some heroic things and he's torn between his vows to love and honor his spouse but also between not testing as children and he feels that there are times when he can't do both because you're right arose gravitate towards the son. They had together walker. He's too young at one and an ally. Well he you know he lies not perfect. He has a temper. Ally is an independent thinker. Ally won't perform for rose and so rose sees eli as a reminder of her past and of the decision she made to marry wrath in the first place and so she tries to get him to bend to her will conform and perform and he won't so she's always comparing the two walker is more malleable. Walker is afraid of his mother scared to death. Mother wants to please his father because he loves his father. And but but that dynamic is what Rose plays off. She is unbelievably insecure in does not feel loved or lovable and so she manipulates in us as guilt to get walker to do what she wants to get monte to do what she wants but he li- won't won't do it. She wants now all that being said when my wife who was my first reader she goes. Paul no mother would act the way. You have rose acting and and i go okay. I need more back story. I need to be able to lay the groundwork for why somebody would and so did that and then also came back to reality that this is fiction and we can fix it all is a little bit and So i did. yeah well. there's an art. They're in fact that you mentioned protagonist and trying to figure out who it is Particularly we could also do the same thing we're talking about. You know the antagonised. I mean on the one hand. It could be stephen prestwick. He's kimberley's father. The murdered a young girl. Who's the girlfriend of of ayla. He makes it his mission to bring down. Marty and bring town mommy's family So he can be one antagonists. The money's gone to fight against but then you know I think antagonise could be a much larger than that. Perhaps it's it's It's sorta life and what life is thrown at a rose in particular and how that spins this thing out of control. Yeah no i guess. Stephen is a. He's an antagonise in a subplot And yeah know Wrath he's he's he he he serves a purpose in the story to propel forward and yeah. He's an antagonist sorts. But i think what i was really focused on with a with the characters is their character. Arc okay this is where they are. All this bad stuff happens to them. How do they respond. Stephen prestwick responded. One way and steven was the secular successful around town. Money prestige power status. Monte is the humble pulled up by bootstrap trying to make it work he succeeding. He's succeeding And sort of a contrast between who survives and monte he. He's a deacon in the church his understanding of of Of his faith is that it has to be earned his salvation nasty earned and so he's a control freak and he thinks that all he has to do is tie then pray and good things will happen and so i believe For him you know his character. Arc is coming to understand what it truly means to trust. God which is to let go and and and truly trust so yes. They antagonised your. I think it's life in how respond to it. And and and the bad things that can happen in our flow to the characters of stephen prestwick. And then you know in wrath and in rows and rows as well now it looks like you did learn something reading all those books in this box because each each story us to have an arc to it and characters have to have an arc when they come into which leads us right into a few life questions for you before we wrap it up today You came from this other background. And i'm just wondering What was the hardest thing paul for you to do during this process of writing this novel. I'll answer that with a. This is not a good answer. The answer is the hardest part of ryan. This novel was writing this novel. And i say that to say i. I spent so much time coming up with what the story was in so i i said i told my wife i said i wanna come up with a good story and then i wanna come up with a good way to tell the story and if i could take all the time it took me to ride it. It seems like most of the work happened in the last ten yards because it was so difficult to get the story out there and come up with okay the character arc and the inciting event and and who lives and who dies and what the ending is once. I got down the editing process. Wasn't that difficult. Because i got to the point. Where i go. I know how many minutes it takes to add a fifteen hundred words. Two thousand words get annika. Okay over the next five days. I should be able to edit this many pages and then it worked it flowed. It was more like my business experience where i knew how long thanks tape.
