Emilio Estevez on Why He Didn't Trade on the 'Sheen' Name

"I use the other than your dad talked about is how proud of you he was of you that you didn't ever, you kept your name. Which is his name. But he was saying, in his generation, like, I don't know if he would have been Martin Sheen if he'd had a Hispanic surname, but he, you know, he was proud of you that you well, you have to remember in 19 58. Yeah. But I don't remember it. But thank you. From a historical context, you, of course. I've heard of it. Yeah. Yeah. Okay. The Puerto Ricans were being blamed for everything in New York. And so my dad with his real name is Ramona stairs. And casting director said, dude, what? You don't look anything like you don't look Puerto Rican. And so he decided, hey, but even in 1979, 1980, when I started going out on auditions, casting directors and managers and agents here in this town would say, you know, you have to Shane name you should use it. You don't look Hispanic and my dad and I had that conversation. He said, don't make the same mistake I did. Yeah. What did you say? I made other mistakes. Was there any discussion between you and Charlie or your dad why he chose to keep it and you didn't or it just was personal decision? Charlotte takes shortcuts. Oh, what? Did I just do not use that clip to sell this? No. Do not Travis. I'm editing it out. God damn it, Travis, don't. Carlos estevez, you're not fooling anybody.

We're out there every single day. And, you know, just this week, everything that we've seen with Twitter has been absolutely incredible. What we're seeing across the country right now in terms of the midterms, you know, I kind of say it's basically like, there's always this question, right? When you're in an election and Charlotte I know you get this one a lot. You know, are we peaking early? Are we peaking early? It doesn't feel that way. Would it feels to me is that the right is is cresting, right? That it's cresting, you're starting to see that crest of a wave, but it hasn't actually yet crashed. And that's where you want to be because we're still about week, week and a half out from the actual election day. It's a really good position to be in. That's why the Elon Musk thing happening yesterday with Twitter. Obviously remains to be seen whether or not he's able to actually, as one man, right? Be able to change the entire culture over there. I like what I'm seeing so far. We happen to be on Tim pool last night live while the news came in. So we had a big celebration. And I think that in general, as a movement, we should celebrate our victories and take time to do that because you have to understand that restoring free speech to the public square. It's I'm not going to say it's more important than an election, but it's almost beyond all of those things because what it does is it gives us the ability to fight on an equal playing field in

Reaching the Finish Line With JD Vance

"Tim Ryan, the pretend moderate, calling for a release of half of all the federal inmates, play cut one O three. Thank you. You've made an ACLU commitment to reduce mass incarceration by 50% during your presidency. So speaking of that commitment, can you walk us through how you would go about doing it? Yeah. There's a lot we have to do. And it ties into a lot of other areas. But I would personally try to start with marijuana laws and getting marijuana off the schedule. Man, just open up our prisons. By the way, anyone who panders like that with the ACLU should not be a senator for the state of Ohio. Because ACLU are the same people that are cousins and sister organizations to people that want to legalize all drugs and then meanwhile, fentanyl is destroying the people of Ohio. People need to know about this. Yeah, that's exactly right, Charlotte, actually our team just identified a video of a couple of days ago where Tim Ryan said that he does want to abolish all limitations all legal penalties for drugs, including fentanyl, which, you know, it makes me realize Charlie like both at the individual trafficker level at the Mexican drug cartel level. And even at the level of China, which of course is manufacturing this fentanyl, the Democrats want to go easy on everybody that's causing this drug problem in the state of Ohio at all across the country. I just got to say Charlie sort of separate the substantive disagreements that I have with Tim Ryan. I watched that clip of him and I think to myself this guy after we beat him is going to have a great career as a used car salesman. There's just something about his voice or about his manner where, you know, it's like he's got a great 1994 Buick. It runs like new and he's going to give you a great deal on it. That's his entire ethic that's his entire attitude. And I think because of it, we're going to do very well in November.

Charlie Pierce: The GOP Assault on the Vote Is Reaching Boiling Point

"By the way, you quote you quoted a guy at the Trump rally on why he loves Trump. The biblical principles that Trump embraces is what I really like about him. I've never heard another president invoke the name of God and Jesus as much. He's embracing biblical principles, follow the Bible, and you can't go wrong, and you just said a cult, moi. He's embracing he's embracing biblical principles and he'll probably have to like send them some hush money. And for a while. Yeah. Because that's what he does to anything he embraces, I think. And I thought this one thing you retreated was parody, but it is actually from the heritage foundation. It says the price of skittles jumped 42% from last year, not to mention the cartels are stuffing skittles bags with deadly fentanyl, happy Halloween from the Biden administration. Would you like to, you know, go ahead. I mean, maybe they are smuggling the stuff in that way. I mean, it's possible, I guess. But as you pointed out, over and over again, they're not going to give the product away. That way. Drug dealing does not work that way. No. Yeah. Charlotte, let's get to your because unfortunately we're short on time, but that's because that's because I'm a fool. That's all right. But to your piece, the GOP assault on the vote is about to come to a boil is what you were just referring to. You said it's all coming together in Arizona and the Supreme Court should be so very proud. The personal right to bear arms dovetails with the increased constitutionality of voter suppression, two sons from different mothers. Wow, you went pundit there for a moment. But as you were talking about these armed individuals with the tactical gear outside the drop boxes, and you said the national Republican Party is all in behind the notion that 2022 elections are already corrupt at parties de facto leader traffic in this poison should surprise approximately nobody. I mean, to your point, Charlie, what do we do about this? I know. I saw one grandma, you know, telling them off, which good for her, you know, I would just say don't be intimidated by them, right? I mean, that's the only in terms of what you can do individually. That's about it. Until you can elect a Congress that is sufficiently veto proof to give us a Voting Rights Act again. And somehow, you know, make it Supreme Court proof and I don't know how the hell you do that at this point. But yeah, I mean, you've got one of our two political parties with no respect for anything anymore. Yeah. None. I mean, top to bottom stem to stern from the U.S. Senate to school boards. You know, that's where we're at. And it's a situation that was created, deliberately. And now it's, you know, now it's Chernobyl. Yeah. It's running beyond control. Charlie, I don't know what the chances are of getting what we have in California across the country. But to me, this argues more and more, this violence against poll workers and intimidation to drop boxes for mail in voting to make just mail in make that the law of the land. I mean, it's what we have in California. It's roughly the same principle as to why they fought RU 44 86 so hard. Because you can have your sense of privacy and do what you need to do, and they can't come in like, you know, glue their heads to your door or whatever. Right. Or shoot your doctor in the head. Right. Yeah. No, exactly. By the way, my favorite headline of yours ever. Steve Bannon unlikely to feel the slap on the wrist through his many collared shirts. That's my man Vic brand down esquire headquarters. I'm not a headline guy. But I too appreciated that. Great deal. But does he wear long sleeved shirts or does he wear short sleeved shirts? I think they're long sleeve. Yeah. I think really because that would be horribly uncomfortable, I would think. Yeah. Yeah, you would think. Of course. You know, then again. Then again, he looks like gout got gout. It belongs in the Smithsonian. Once tried to say in The New York Times, you know, that's probably, you know, you sacrifice comfort a long time ago. Yeah. Well, why is he still able to do a show, by the way? I know. I know. Why isn't there a gag order on this guy? I know. Whatever happened to like cuffing people as soon as a sentence comes down and taking them to jail. Whatever happened to that. Well, I mean, it's releasing, I mean, for all we don't like the guy. He wasn't convicted of very much. Right, but he was still convicted of ignoring a congressional subpoena. Right. Which is a crime. Right. But that's a decision. Yes, if he was a 13 year old black kid in the sky. That's what I mean. Who makes the decision? I appreciate that. But so the judge makes the decision whether he gets to be free on bail or go to jail right away. I mean, the judge was the judge was plainly doing his trumpian duty there. He didn't find him practically, you know. Steve Bannon can raise $6500 in an afternoon. Yeah. So, you know, I didn't have any expectations that he was going to wind up in jail

Lord Conrad Black: The Free Press Is Incompetent and Dishonest

"Free press is incompetent and dishonest. And that is why only approximately 15% of Americans believe what they see in the media or here in the media. And it is a terribly dangerous situation. Democracy can not open. I mean democracy, not fascism. Can not ultimately flourish without a free press. We have to have a free press, but when the public no longer values a free press, there will be no pressure for it to be free. It will be completely disregarded as is now almost the case. And the whole standard of public discourse deteriorates and you are apt to get Charlotte in some ridiculous and completely unacceptable people gaining access to elective office. But the problem is not the public voting Republican. The problem is that journalists are dishonest and incompetent. By the way, most of them are a litter. It also, this is true if you listen to the copy that they read off the teleprompters.

"Following these developments out of Florida where it is looking grim. And the wind and the damage, the storm surge is beginning to happen. It will continue throughout our program and we're going to do our very best to keep you updated on this story.

They're very busy today. Wanting to bring you the latest information from what we understand now from the national hurricane center, there now predicting a catastrophic storm surge, folks, I want you to listen to these numbers. This is not an error. This is the actual numbers, and we're talking about feet, not inches. But the national hurricane center now says that they're expecting a storm surge of between 12 and 18 feet above ground level. That's expected to happen somewhere between englewood, Florida, and Bonita beach, Florida that would also include Charlotte harbor. So that's a little south of Tampa Bay, but it doesn't really matter because the storm is so massive, it exploded in size late last night into the early morning hours at one point, by the way, there were actually two eye walls. From a meteorological standpoint, from a weather guest standpoint, it truly was remarkable to see to see that storm just explode, borderline category 5, but at this point it really doesn't matter.

Gov. Ron DeSantis Warns of Storm Surges, Encourages Evacuation

"Breaking now on the Mike Gallagher show. Here's Florida governor Ron DeSantis moments ago, briefing reporters and telling floridians, you better be ready. And if you are in an evacuation zone, you should get out. Charlie was a lot smaller. It was powerful as a category four, most of the damage from Charlie was from wind. And when destruction, what we have here is really historic storm surge and flooding potential. And so if you're looking at those places in fort Meyer, Charlotte county, Sarasota, the storm surge that you're going to see generated from this is going to far eclipse what we saw there. And so as you look to see what is going on with the local counties, there's evacuation orders that are in place on all these counties from Pasco and pinellas down to the Fort Myers area. And our recommendation is to heed those evacuation orders. What those evacuation orders are doing is identifying people that live in areas that are vulnerable to major storm surge. And that storm surge can be life threatening. There's certain things we can protect against in terms of the wind and the structures and we've got great building codes. But when you have 5 to ten feet of storm surge, that is not something that you want to be a part of. And mother nature is a very fearsome adversary. So please heed those warnings. You do not need to evacuate to another state. You don't need to go hundreds of miles away. Their shelters that are open and all of these counties at this point, the important part of if you're under an evacuation order is evacuate to higher ground that is going to be safe from the type of surge and flooding that we're fearing with this storm.

"With us right now is Alex marlowe from breitbart dot com, Alex is one of the smartest guys on the entire conservative landscape, and he runs one of my favorite websites, breitbart dot com, which I am a daily visitor Alex. Welcome back to the program. Charlie, it is a pleasure to be on with you. I'm so grateful that you're offering your audience for my news and opinion. So Alex, I want to play this tape here just to refresh our audience's memory, which is there was a shocking video. That was released out there. About a nonprofit, a 5 O one that was paying people to make anti Trump videos, but not just anti Trump videos. Flagrantly trying to influence an election. And showing that the $65 million pot of money was being used against what the regulation codes would say, let's play cut 37. I was just offered $400 to make an anti Donald Trump propaganda post related to the January 6th investigation that is completely not true. So first thing first, I get an email from somebody with the good info foundation. Jane sent me a message letting me know she represented the good info foundation and that she was willing to offer a paid collaboration to discuss some topics related to January 6th. So we have other clips to build this out, but first Alex, you saw this and as a journalist, this disturbed you and you decided to do something about it, tell us about it. Yeah, Charlotte, I guess we're breaking some news here on the show. And I don't even know if this is me as a journalist. It is to a degree, I guess, because everything in my mind, I'm sure you feel similarly, is content at some point because I'm on the radio, and I got a website. But this is as much me being a citizen here. This is a flagrant example of someone admitting if what he says is true. And a breitbart we've spoken to this individual and he does not appear to be a Trump supporter named Preston Moore, Harvard trained lawyer. And if what he says is true, we're seeing flagrant violations of 5 O one rules that forbid people from participating in politics, both directly or indirectly. And you would think Charlie and an era where we're talking about adding 87,000 new IRS agents. This would be front and center for the IRS. So earlier today I filed a complaint and I filed a compliant yes as a journalist, but also as an American individual who thinks that this is clear corruption and I don't trust the government to look into it unless someone like me reaches out.

"Can you boil it down anything. I think i would boil it down to say. Just don't give up. I mean there are many times you think to yourself as a writer. Oh why am i doing. This is so hard. And i don't feel like i'm particularly good at it but you do get better. You actually do keep getting better. And you and the one thing i've always done from the get-go is to just read a lot. You can't read enough. you simply cannot do that And i think it's important to read good literature because if you if you're not reading if you're reading just potboilers you're gonna write some respect like potboiler and that's it. I'm not saying that's a bad thing. Necessarily i'm just saying You need to be able to expand your horizons though. It's about continuing to continue to work and not give up because there have been many times. I decided i just can't do this anymore. Because i don't feel like getting aware and eventually you have breakthroughs and that's the part by keeping going. So why do you write and robert. It's like any mini writers. I think i just have a passion for it. I mean minds a swirl of ideas and characters and the important thing about writing to me is that you don't have to be riding every day okay. i can't just sit down and just right. I mean at some people can do that. That's just not me But i do feel like every day. I'm still writing even if i'm not writing a word on a piece of paper or typing into a computer. I feel that way. Because i know my mind is working. I have something in there. I'm not sure what it is. But illich it'll keep talking to me and i'm not in and i don't try to force it either because we try to force it then it's just not gonna work now. I might start reading something. Because i have some idea about something Where i might read a short story or a might read a novel that i think You've got to have some interest in what i'm thinking about but again every day i think is a day in which you're still riding whether you're riding on the paper or not. Do you think your career cy. Social worker gives you some insight into you know how how different people feel To helps you improve characters. Yes i absolutely do Because i have written many a story that was somewhat based on some people that i've worked with It's not exactly what the circumstances were but I've seen different parts of life. That way I i've seen. I've been in homes. Were people were extremely wealthy. I've also been in many many homes where people would be amazed how some folks live In it's sad to see that that that it's that way But one thing. I've always found about being in social work. And this is the important part. I think how it connects to my writing. Is that They're all human. They are all in my mind. Still people with strengths and weaknesses. And you have to have compassion. Not only for them as a social worker but you have to have compassion for your characters. I just don't think it works with if you don't have compassion for your characters point and listeners.

"But it it does have a happy ending. yeah And as as we said there's a lot of humor involved here too so you explored these themes of divorce romance But also you work in marriage equality into the end of the tax dollars wondering about that. What what motivated you to do that. you know obviously the duality of charlotte where it's both progressive. And then it's got these vestiges of the bible belt but you know. I just thought it absurd that the a lot of people that are kind of trying to define what marriage is or. Isn't that some kind of sacred institution you know based on you know the bible. There's there's no rules when when a marriage dissolves it's like bare knuckles and get what you can and do whatever underhanded thing you need to do so to me. It just sort of seemed Like something worth exploring that those two things Could kind of illustrate a point that you know treat marriage with reverence on the way in a way out and one of the attorneys didn't really publicize the fact she's lesbian and had a relationship with the a a psychologist girl. Psychologists who committed suicide in the midst of a really high profile divorce so they couldn't make their relationship public and then when the other attorney who's also a lesbian becomes the sort of defacto spokesperson for marriage equality after a bombing incident charlotte. They decide they have to go public and they have to get married which will also have the effect of Exempting them from testifying against one another so that that kind of happens. So they're they're part of the whole wedding thing as well Marriage coming up so that you know a little bit of a plot complication there. But i thought i thought they all fit well together before we dive in a few life questions Just the book cover. I'm looking at it. So i'm a believer in less is more and we have on this book cover. We got to urges man and woman almost You know as kind of a graphic cartoonish look but the man's holding up a a bouquet of flowers but he's got his hand behind his back with his fingers crossed right so he he approached her. You know the goal of wooing her and under a a facade of deception but it it grew into so much more and Know a big fan of carl hiaasen and his book covers voicing too bright colors and our cartoonish but yet he has these zany characters and multiple plot twists at all intersect at some point. But there's also a message. He has usually his as weird place with some crazy people and Greedy people that ruining it and you know. But that was kind of what i shouldn't for a couple of riding life questions The you know we're gonna talk more paycheck about some lessons. You've learned but what did you find most challenging about this Thing called writing a book which had done before. And would you find this rewarding So when when people think of writing a book they think the writing part is the predominant thing that you do on the reality is for every moment of brilliance that you have putting together a sentence. There's our staring at your keyboard when you write a sentence and you hate three of the words and are looking at synonyms. Or you're researching you know civil war history because you got distracted but you also editing is a big thing. I just kind of barf out. Everything and one of the things you learn is to trust your reader so you don't need as much back story as you think you do and i had cut a lot of that out. I had my hand. I'm like if i don't describe everything about where they went to elementary school. And you know what the when they learned to ride a bicycle or what their parents were like or all that stuff. They're not going to really get an insight into character. But i think in this instance would have been kinda gratified when i- skinny down. The book is the ability work with an editor. They actually make your work more. You're on they allow to shine. They polish something that house. You know some some roth parts and make it better about while still retaining your voice but most people seem to resonate with the characters they sell. They felt real. So i feel like even though i cut out a lot of that. Back story They still and we'll get general gist and almost everyone seems to identify with at least one of them. I know a person exactly like that. You really nailed it. The you know. In fact i had a writer friend in the group who got remarried and she was texting her husband paragraphs of the book. It's like this is exactly your ex wife. I don't know how this is so uncanny so you know it just seems like they're archetypes of people you can draw on and if you draw them well that will resonate to that. Part was very very you know interesting to me. I've gotten a lot of stuff from both men and women that they were glad. There was finally a book in the mail viewpoint of this without being overly male dominant. If you will. I wanted to make sure. I balanced it with some very strong intelligent nuanced women Who kinda helped him get his mojo back You know he. He learned from them. So it's not very much. You know men get the short under the stick kind of thing it just. In this particular instance. One guy was fortunate enough to run into some very need understanding women that helped him retain his Regained self confidence. So you described the process You know sitting down writing. Sometimes you fits and starts not knowing that this is ever going to make it into the world. Did you tell people. You're writing a book or did you hold that back until you're sure you're gonna make. I think i told people by tennessee was to just tell people figuring then. I'd be held accountable when they'd asked me. How's your book coming along and for like a deck. Emmett was moving at around the same pace as the familiar sagrada in barcelona which has taken like three hundred years to complain. They're still not even done their scaffolding all over it But when i joined that writers group which is about Three years ago That was really a catalyst. Because then i knew what i needed to do. I need to get an editor knew. I needed to skinny it down to under a hundred thousand words. You know all the little writer things which will get into an amendment. You know passive voice or paring down the use of adjectives and things like that. I felt like i could get somethin' out there. That you know belong to be on shelf Whereas it wasn't so as mysterious as it once was once you learn the sausage making The stuff that you didn't know you didn't know It became a lot easier and vision of this national book. So will there be a next book. Having through this cross. Yeah i decided. I'm going to go with a female protagonist and it's called espionage and it's about a woman. She's divorced. She has three kids and after carpooling our kids in suburban charlotte dance lessons and literally Next thing she knows she's waking up in a drug induced haze and kirghistan and blackhawks prison with no idea. Why she's there why she was abducted and it turns out Her husband worked at one of the big banks in town. Charlotte is the town that atm's built a he selling cybersecurity secrets to who we think's her low level russian mobsters but it's an international cabal trying to take down the us banking system so she has the become kind of an a reluctance in 007 Think like marisa tomei and my cousin vinny Takes over for jack ryan and the sum of all fears. It's how i describe. It is like a jersey transplant to charlotte. And you know. That's that's kind of the story so enjoying get.

"I <hes> kind of forgot about it at one second place which blew me away and that still did not convince me that writing for other people to see was something. I wanted to do that two weeks. After the short story was published. I was out getting the mail and a neighbor who at the time was in her mid sixties. Came over to me and said are you. The person who wrote this story was a story about a woman who was staying in abusive relationship for the sake of the children. And the impact had on the children in bobbed and the and it's not factual by the way let me hasten to add but <hes> but this neighbor came to me and said i was meeting someone for lunch. Someone had left this newspaper sitting on the table. And while i waited for her to get there i read your story and tears start pouring down her her cheeks and she said you got rate. This was my family. You got it right and we sat. There stood there in the street for many minutes. Both of the sprint tears at that point and it was a huge shift for me to recognize that what i put on the page could reach out to other people and i think that was a definitely something that moved me. Forward in believing that Writing things actually finishing them and actually trying to put them out in the world potentially had value a great story. In that vein. What do you hope that What are you going to get From wildland i think the the the goal of the book is choose life regardless of what life throws your way and If readers walk away with that as a sense Than than that's a great thing I've gotten some amazing emails from people who have read the book and have been very touched by the fact that The book has resonated with people.

It might have helped you. Get through this Maybe quicker. Maybe i don't know maybe. Just what would you tell young writing self now based on what you've learned about this process that would help guide that young person it's interesting i'd like to say just keep writing and don't worry about how you think it's going to sound and don't worry about your own private fears bay I think that would be it.

Say usually. there'll be a fit to our true calling sense of rightness and then this i've worked as an evangelist as leader as a developer of younger leaders in each of these roles when i see people connected with a new abundant life in christ finding themselves life in all its fullness.

"It that there's a lot of camaraderie that occurred after the game with ficials. Remember one story from the book you talked about officiating perha restaurant where everybody always went after the game except tell us what happened after one game. You fish When you went to ed emery was was the coach there. He had went on his the head coach at carolinas he. He was quite a football and He was coaching high and he would always. After the game we go to beaumont's they'd have a little private room for for officials and we go back and we'd have a stake and all compliments coach emrick and we go up there one night to fish a game and three of the four officials were east. Carolina guys of course added played at east carolina and one of his former teammates. Jason brooks was was one of the fficials in the game and so he had laughed. Hasn't got made tonight three east carolina gals here. I'm good late in the game. When a young man for riseborough broke long run apparently win the game. His former college teammate had called holding and so the play got called back and ways. Borough lost the game so in the locker room. The i said guys. We're not going to get a steak tonight out. All of us like that is. It's too nice ago. So we got dressed and we walked into bowman's and and scott like ron said it's kinda like the old west where the slayer walks into barn about it. Stops turns looks at it the way they looked at us and and the manager said what the hell are you know there. We said we didn't then coach. Him recall is yeah. He called and said if y'all came in here to have your wrist state on that day but it was really funny because they had remained friends forever. When i when i was president william he actually had a he had a president's. Pass the come in a game. You could come to come. Sit with me in the press box. Because i loved him as a friend a new more about football than anybody scrape society been younger. You have a family story but you ought to tell swelled for some reason. This always ends up coming back to that. Virginia north carolina game when i was ten years old and it was just a big day for both ryan in me Because like he said he's down there with his camera that santa claus body Standing beside two guys with a giant lenses in the expensive cameras and he probably got the best picture of the day of berry word score scoring a winning touchdown of course. He got clobbered by a unc defensive. Back which might have been only clean edited by unc. Had all day news only about fourteen. Yeah yeah and weighed. Probably you know nanny six pounds and a but apparently at that game Or so i have been told I walked out onto the field Dirt a time out tug don't dad's jersey and And standing at the fifth yard line. And i wanna tell you you guys. Are you guys doing a great job diet. Never i've never confessed to this crime. But dad swears that's the way it went down. I don't know what the the less the least credible part of that story is that i went out of the field that i told them they were doing story. Enron you saying that As a child watching your father In your career theus satellites new lots of stories here about officials with the site to. I'm sorry the coaches with the officials about how they feel. I think there's one where that catches running field holding the card up tonight card calling you be. He's going to go back to high school. And there's a certain industrially. Gerry ford says this fucking catava perspective watching on the sidelines. Did you sometimes feel like Protective of unani feel protective officials general. Now as you watch games. What is your perspective. 'cause you're there to cover what people wanna watch which is the actual sporting contests. They don't necessarily care about officials. But you've got this history. Yeah well and i think i've been labelled officials apologised. Sometimes but the reality is that i have always seen it as part of my job. Just because i'm fortunate enough to have the platform with college football to humanize officials you know and this is what we talked about in the book. Dad set it off the top of the show. Which is you know. Officials are human beings first and foremost and i'm not naive. And i've learned the hard way that i knew that when we wrote this book you know. Hopefully thousands of people aren't Illegal read the book. But i don't expect any of them. The man i love referees books over with but but i think that they're going to respect them a little bit and so that's always been. My goal is on to explain. This is how this happened even when they get it wrong you are. This is how this went down and Years ago for espn the magazine. I used to do a column. That was an official scouting report. And so there's five big games coming up. That weekend i would talk to officials a lot of. I've known since i was a kid and i would say all right. Would you expect to see this weekend from west virginia in texas. And i would say i know this is what it's like on the sideline and this is what this author of what i was trying to illustrate. Underline was how smart officials were and they've done their work and they scouted the teams and they know the teams just like the opposing teams. And just like the the listed and a lot of cases no more than most cases no more than a lot of my television colleagues. Do but i got in trouble with that deal because i started talking to officials anonymously and i got a little too specific. Let's say what. I wouldn't give a name but i'd say a big east umpire said someone's up and it was. It was west virginia dana. Holson houston now. He head coach west virginia At the end of that season those stories. I did got a lot of traffic and and i think it helped a kind of illustrate while trying to say which is officials. Really no football way better than you think they don't just show up and do the game lead and they're not out during a evil are trying to take them down but they understand the teams in the tendencies that they're going to see all saturdays and i got a call from doug rhodes who at the time was the coordinator of football officiating. Jc and as you know from the book was one of das- longest tenured sideline colleagues and doug colleagues. Hey man he says. Will noah just left our end of season officiating meeting with all the coordinators around the country. I said yeah because yeah you gotta stop writing this column at your rights. He said he said we all agree that you make officials look great. He gives me manny is. We've had so. They had to implement a rule that stands to this day. It's been ten years. Which is officials aren't allowed to talk to the media directly and a lot of the officials on the ryan gero because they know they they're the ones that's talked to me the gave me the information and put it out there and now i've ruined it for everyone so this another's a designated person or you just go through the coordinator if you have efficient in question but yeah that's a really long way of saying yes I like to try to educate the public with the platform. Been given on officials and to the point to a lot of my colleagues are like. Yeah yeah ryan. We heard your dad. Was ref thanks for bringing that up again. Jerry we're talking about Evaluations you got the anyway by staff looked after the officials you also gotta valuated about people coming out at church restaurant one of.

Marlow three you get the bug again. Eric for Curious about the bog is seems like this. Just sort of vast space out there between out of competing. Planets kinda sorta. Yeah it's You know the thing. About detrick city vice. It's the first book to be told in peacetime all right. The first three books in the series comprise the mako. Saga which is a trilogy One of the huge story arcs is this decades. Long war between the aren't alliance and they all steering empire and you find out pretty quick in book one that ian are actually a group of orange who seceded from the world because they had a ton of differences with leadership and how they wanted society to be run in the wake of an alien invasion. You had one group that said we wanna build for defense and nothing more. And then you had another group said we need to be the baddest m efforts in the in the valley with the biggest stick and that means building tons and tons of ships and basically reorienting reorienting our entire way of life around the military and there was big vote and alistair lost and so they said well. Fine peace out. We're gonna go find another world where we can build a society that we want and everybody lived fine on their sides of the fence until such time as they figured out that there was a planet between them that housed a mineral that everybody needed and such began the war. So you know. The trilogy deals with the war between those two groups and a lot happens as as does and space opera. This book is told five years after the events of of that story And it said at a time when the war is over and there's peace between the two superpowers the alliance the empire. Now kinda called the union a dumb know it. It's a very different type of space to write in Within the context of the story you asked what the bog is. The empire particularly in their latter years was pretty notorious for just annexing. World's once my my big bad kinda got into power around book to mean pretty. Well started forcing people in into their territory for their resources and whatever they had to give and in the matter so one of the first things the chancellor that world had to do once peace came back around and they got back control of their their group was to tell all of those world. Listen you know we realized that many of you were brought here not byron doing all right. You were forced into this so we would love to invite you to be a part of this new entity that we're going to build a union where everybody can take part have equal rights And enjoy the same privileges out in the rim as you do in the core you have my word that you will get that if however you feel like you just can't trust us anymore you have your your freedom to go and nobody here is gonna stop you so there were a number worlds. That went the way of the alliance. Said thank you. we're out. We're going to the orange side of the fence. But there were number worlds right smack dab between the two pair Territories that decided. We don't trust either you guys and we're going to go do our own thing so leave us alone. We're gonna stay out here in our little corner of the quadrant and we don't want to deal with anybody and that becomes the league of independent worlds and it's kind of a backwater stretch of the of the quadrant that gets nicknamed the bog and that's what the bog is. It's about fourteen star systems. Who decided they were fed up with the status quo with both of the superpowers said. We don't want anything to do with either. You guys were going to go do our own thing. And the third of meany group sprouts up and that is the league of independent. World's talk about this Estimate listen you talk with the senate. We're talking about their out there. I mean you really are. You're you're this is part of your stories university. Don't this up and attitude with this book here this location detrimental city. Tell us about that world little bit. Detroit's is really kind of the face of the league of independent world There is not a capital of the bog. You'll you'll hear me say the league in the bog interchangeable as because they are there is not a capital to the bog because there is no centralized government you know. One of the tenants of the league is that every world has complete and total sovereignty over itself in its citizens to run their affairs however they see fit and as long as they abide by defense pacts basic defense pact and they abide by a trade pact that will jump start commerce in the region for everybody than that point his hands off. You do your thing. I'm gonna do mine Detrick city is really kind of the face of what that looks like. I tell people that veteran city is i mean for all intents and purposes.

"So by favorite writer. Is john grisham and to paraphrase him. Extremely rupp late. He's he said vecchi rice or chambers. And i was hoping they will read by books. Just enjoy reading. And when they take it to the beach or the read by christmas story of time or whatever. I want to just enjoy the book. I do and i think righty fish will be a lot harder if you were trying to take on a very very serious subject like race relations or something like that then. I think the book would become a lot of work. Because you'd be dealing with a subject that intellectually and ideally subjects in an from an entertainment point of view and. That's that's a good point. I grew up to Enjoying john grisham Being lawyer myself and just to you know dealing with everyday legal stuff and then read. His books asked him one time. I said you know. Why do you write about the judges and lawyers that are unethical and committing illegal acts. That's probably know only a very small percentage of do that and he said yeah. But that's what raiders like to read. And that's what he said he said. I got carried away. Forgot debate about what. John grisham repair braces. He writes entertainment. He could as as not advancing literature. You know He's not going to be charles or anybody like flat but bullies. He tells great stories and by sakr. Favorite subject after westerns are courtroom dramas. That's always like law and order perry mason. I've to get to period. Beijing reruns by the company that the cable company that i still watch a light courtroom dramas so i enjoyed the law to and i asked about. Phd ambassador cases of journalism. I told about wipe who's no longer living. I said i would really like to go to law school. She said if you wanted to force where. I was in about thirty three. She said this is. We're not go through this again fascinated. I think that's one of the reasons. Elect john grisham and out whether people pay much attention but he he is really. I mean he. He says a really really funny. They star kathy. I love sarcasm long. It's not aimed at me but he writes. He writes wonderful. Sarcasm george your wife get to read your short story and Your western before. She died friday not as she do. The bunch i finished the Textbook the person issue came out the year after she died in nineteen ninety four. She knew about the book had and she I got married a little late very when i was thirty. One out finished a master's degree. When i was twenty or but she she was nurse and so she works. I have a teaching fellowship but at university pay pay the tuition all at but she worked at be put through through the pace j program so a lot of her. She says she saw all of that. She helps you about dissertation. And she saw everything that i wrote for for the first edition of the textbook but she had. She had no clue. By those days that i've propagation. What do you think george since she knew you as she did is a Academic and writing dissertations and journalists articles. What do you think she'd say to you today about Your fiction writing. While i follow the she would get a kick out. Psychopathic should be very proud. Tells us in. St louis raging As all a good spouses are baylor. Female and And she would have been if. I told her i wanted to try. She'd been a of my sister panish. You said the same thing. We'll give it a try to right. So which got known george. If you didn't have some strong female characters in that book she would've noticed you know. I'll take something else landes in all the years that i taught i had some a trivia just so smart and the smartest student i've ever had had to be male from a small town of west virginia who was just brilliant as the logger from harvard. Now but the majority no fenced in him by former bell students admitting great but the majority of my really good shoots were female and they were the ones who had come see it or office hours gaza corporate. Come up they needed to but my office. I would say probably people came to see me for whatever kind of help shoots but read three one females. Maybe poured one so. I had great respect for the people in life. Because a lot of those students now render fifties a few money would be sexually and some have become really good friends and We offer shuttered vice time-to-time goes they're no longer students. We don't have that relationship A couple of a hard time. George but thanks astro but i but we've got the relationship actually. I've got some good advice. Both of the novels that i wrote i have read by head to a former students. Read each of those Before i ask anybody else do and identify what was a journalist who'd been a copy editor for many years and one had one was say Worked in public relations at a university and she was a super by students and told the big big critical as you possibly be and And so a lot of respect for women and their intelligence intersil way. I could write a book now without having strom some strong female characters in there because after john grisham i think by four favorite writers are women. That's great so we're going to do this. George would look. Tommy have left You've talked about your christmas story. We've got a little read here from the christmas story Because we're in the mood. Here's december we're kind of getting closer to christmas so anything to set up this particular rating. This piece comes not far from the head of the short story.

Our parents got rid of us for five or six hours every saturday afternoon and the said before they feel guilty because they do though place. We'd rather be yes. And what part of the world did you grow up in george. Urban southern west. Virginia in a city called backley. I thought it was a big city to tom. About nineteen or twenty thousand and about west virginia standards. That's a fairly decent size town. The two largest cities in the state charleston. Which is the state capital and huntington were marsh. University is located have never had more than sixty thousand people. Each within their town limits their metro areas for much bigger but relatively speaking. I thought i grew up in fairly ashdown until i got outed. World a bit found out. Twenty thousand wasn't a whole lot compared with chicago. Yeah we you throw a bunch of names as far as westerns. Go the era that she watched when you pay fifteen cents to see it and then you got into the john wayne era. And then you're moving into a robert duvall clint eastwood and tommy lee jones. And all those kind of things but I am wonder so. So that era also included randolph. Scott right didn't he play in like more cowboy movies than anybody. He was one of my favorites. But i don't remember Randolph scott ever played at a b. movie his movies were little upgraded from that but if he ever pay attention to him he wore the same thing in almost every booby he had a. He had a well warn leather Coat coast that came down maybe four inches below his waist and it looks like had been well oil because it had dark and light phases and he always wore a cowboy hat but he usually had little strap that came under his chin like ladder saw john wayne brady body. Wear that sort of thing but randolph. Scott was minima favorites and i love. His tidewater of virginia. Accident did sound very western. But he had beautiful speaking voice. Well for those.

I'd like to know because we're gonna talk about your Your book why dot bound in more detail here on the show but What in your mind makes a good western world Of course action and one of the get used to bother me. When i was a child as a lot more when i got three grown up that watching to western. Sometimes i have to watch twenty medicine half hour before they had a gun by an op started off wind up with gun on purpose so that my readers would not have to wait. Twenty thirty forty fifty pages vote for somebody drew a gun out of a holster so that the very first paragraph jd roar the the godfather by chance he did be irene. Just kind of fell into it. Threes job as deputy sheriff at a very fast draw saw started back with a gun fight and so far the feedback has been wonderful. That other awful lot of people out there that felt the same way that i do it was action of give and then when i was a kid i hated romance in the b. movies. He thought the girls just got in the way. Because i was seven or eight years old. And i didn't find out that females could be more fascinating until i about chains and so then the b. movies. The only women are or grandmothers and mothers who pick nice meals for the cowboys of very tattoo over. Found out death. The westerns life type. That i needs some romance them. And not only because that's part of adult light but also. I was very aware very very much aware. The people had told me and i had presumed without doing any research. That many women raiders and that seems to be the majority of people who buy books would be turned off by the subject. Westwards so i have women very much. Mon- wrote this book. There are a lot of strong women in wyandotte bound characters who have very mature roles very intelligent and much of the comments that i have received through reviews on amazon or good reads or wherever most of come from women and two or three of a just come right out and said this is not usually what i read but of new me and i told us will read it from a perspective of a woman. Tell me what you say. And they liked it. Because i have strong characters and romance running throughout the book. Yeah it's interesting you. You hit two topics there. The inciting incident and romance and i'm like you When i picked up this book and star rating. I really enjoyed the fact that we get into the action early on with the gun. Fight is probably while romance authors. Put sex in the first fifteen pages right.
